Benefits Of Syrian Refugees

Superior Essays
By the end of 2017 there could as many as 3 million refugees living throughout Europe (Calamur). This is an enormous change for the population, especially for states taking in larger number of refugees or states with already low populations. To help illustrate, as of September, the Syrian refugees represent 0.11% of the European population while they represent 25% of the Lebanon population (Bajenkal). There are both benefits and costs to an increased population. The benefits offer a large amounts of potential labor and large skill pools. If the human potential is grasped correctly, the refugees could strengthen fiscal sustainability by altering the age distribution. On the other hand, if the human potential is not used efficiently the fiscal …show more content…
If the war hadn’t been going on the vast majority of these refugees would have never embarked on their journey. A quick win-all end to the war in Syria is clearly not possible, but efforts in ending this war could help the migrant crisis long-term (Kingsley “10 Ways to Manage”). There is no end to the civil war in sight and without an end the refugee crisis could become a never ending cycle. Around 18% of Syria’s prewar population have been registered by the Office of the United Nations as refugees that have fled Syria, and 32% are displaced within the country. Over 10 million Syrian’s either have or want to escape Syria (Rohr). There have been some efforts aimed to help end the civil war but none that will solve the problem. Targeted airstrikes against the Islamic State group have occurred. To create a solution that is valuable for everyone, the refugees and affect countries, the Syrian civil war must end. To achieve this a real war must happen. A war against the Islamic State group fought by Syrians with the help of the United Nations. Syrians could be recruited for the army in barter for asylum of family members. Recruiting eligible Syrians will help build a transitional military government. This army will be fully backed by the United Nations. The United Nations will also provide additional support troops and weapons. Without the cease of the civil war there will be continued turmoil and death (Rohr). When the civil war is ended, Syrians can return home and rebuild their country with the help of the United Nations. This is the only long term solution that will keep the refugees from leaving Syria. If it gets to it, and all non-Islamic State Syrians leave, the country will be ruled by the Islamic State which will only provide them with more resources and capabilities which would affect the entire world. If there is not an end to the civil war we will all witness a huge change within

    In an article done by David J. Bier named “4 Selfish Reasons to Take in Syrian Refugees”, Bier points out this “If the US announced that it was turning away all Syrian refugees, ISIS would immediately incorporate this decision into its recruitment campaign.” ISIS will use anything they can get their hands on to recruit more militants and the U.S. does not need to hand them any more reasons. ISIS already has an enormous propaganda machine running day and night and is recruiting at least one thousand new members each day. Some Americans are just plain terrified into thinking that by accepting more refugees we are opening the door to more terrorism and violence in the United States. Russell Berman at the Atlantic ascertains, “A refugee applying for resettlement in the U.S., by contrast, must endure a screening process that takes as long as two years before stepping foot on American soil.” So with a process that takes this long one would think of other ways to come into the United States that would be a more streamlined process. It just doesn’t seem like a possible route for a terrorist would want to use since they want immediate results of…

    11.3 million people have been displaced by the civil war in Syria and, despite a lack of coverage recently in the media, the number is only growing (World Vision). When asked, people guessed the number of refugees to be in the thousands and one even responded “is that still going on?” (Mason). We, as people of the world, should help out the refugees by all able-countries working together to assist diplomatically, socially, and economically. In addition, informing the masses about this ongoing problem could bring more people to help them. We are writing this paper to give assistance, guidance, and reasons to help the refugees; especially for the people that are having mixed feelings about whether or not to help them.…

    Civilians have faced too much: barrel bombs, starvation, the targeting of hospitals and rescue workers and the suspected use of chemical weapons with no signs of the regime stopping anytime soon. It is too late for the Free Syrian Army to topple the Assad regime. Although inhumanely and through acts of war crimes, which should be settled through the United Nations, it seems as if Assad’s regime has won the war. It will not be long before Assad and his allies destroy the entire city of Aleppo. The United States should stop funding the Free Syrian Army immediately.…

    In the past people have proposed that global war be outlawed due to upstanding principles and values, but since the development of weapons all hopes to end global war have been lost (MacArthur 54.) If one country outlaws the use of deadly weapons, then they will just be attacked and destroyed by another country. Today, countries must keep trying to develop better defenses so they can defend themselves in any possible war. Today, terrorism is a large problem. If global war is outlawed, terrorism will still occur and everyone will become victims.…

    According to The Guardian, leading republican candidates have been called for more vigorous screening of Syrian refugees or even turning away the refugees. Meanwhile, many evangelicals agree with these measures and support the government should place a moratorium on any new refugees. Evangelical leaders are saying that “The screening of refugees is a crucial aspect of national security, and we should insist on it”. There are concerns that the U.S government might not have the ability to properly screen out potential terrorists during the immigration process of the refugees. Also, Wax states, “There is no way to be certain who is a jihadist and who isn’t.…
