The Importance Of Immigrants In Europe

6.6; that 's how many billions of dollars that were spent in order to cope with just 800,000 of the more than a million overwhelming amount of immigrants fleeing from the Middle East and seeking asylum in Europe. The safety of these people is clearly very important to the countries receiving the staggering overflow of immigrants such as Germany and France, but it is also causing significant controversy as to whether they should continue to let hundreds of thousands of refugees into their countries. Not only is this expensive, but it also poses a huge threat towards national security. Recent events may have people believing that most of these immigrants are out to cause terror; however, this is not the case. Many countries in Europe such as …show more content…
They are driven out of their countries because of Imperialist wars, and other military unrest. Europe is the safest place they can feasibly travel to from their home countries. The journey they make in order to reach their destination is extremely dangerous, and only someone desperate would take the risk of making that journey. In late summer of 2015, 12 Syrian immigrants were found lifeless due to drowning during the dangerous voyage toward asylum in the Europe. As conflict in the Middle East grows; more and more people will be fleeing, and trying to reach asylum in Europe. The EU needs to play its part in helping these people in need. The U.S. has actively been helping the Syrian military, and other governments push back against terrorist, and rebel …show more content…
They need to be open minded, and accept that they are being looked to for help, and as a land of refuge. Recently there has been countless acts of terrorism, and this creates a very negative attitude toward the Middle Eastern people. Everyone has begun to assume that these attacks have to do with the excess amount of Syrian Refugees. This is not the case, in fact, all of the identified assailants involved in the Paris attacks on November 13, 2015 were citizens of European Union countries. Although the attacks were most likely coordinated by Islamic State operatives, the radicalism was “homegrown” and cannot be placed on Syrian refugees.
The negative connotation with the Islamic religion really broke out after the attacks on 9/11, and this feeling of hatred has continued to boil in the blood of western civilization ever since. We cannot aim our hatred at a single religion, but only at the people who are causing these horrific and unforgiving events.

    The issue starts over in the middle east, this article states that Syria is the biggest contributor of the crisis, as well as countries like Iran and Afghanistan (Migrant Crisis: Migration to Europe).

    (3) Many states are afraid of the possible threat refugees have based on their own history as well as the history of the states.

    Things have changed a bit, but not without disagreement. The Syrian refugees are experiencing major difficulties to gain entry into the United States. Even though many state governors are opposing taking in Syrian refugees, President Obama has plans to accept thousands. “The Refugee Act of 1980 dictates that refugee resettlement within the United States is managed by the federal government… Individual states do not have the legal authority to block refugee placement.” (“GOP governors threaten to halt Syrian refugee resettlement in their states” Associated Press) Many are saying that the participants of the Paris attacks were hidden amongst the thousands of Syrian refugees. State governors are using what happened in Paris as a reason to justify why we should not allow them to stay in the United States.…

    Too often I hear those who argue against Islam plea "Not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims. The stupidity, inaccuracy, foolishness and idiocy of this seems rather surprising to me. Organisations like the 'KKK ' are never referred to as terrorists, you never see Irish People 's Liberation being referred to as terrorists, you never see Anders Behring Breivik being associated with terrorism or Army of God or Adam Lanza. It is rather saddening while researching this topic an article caught my attention. Adam Lanza was involved in an article of the Dailymail and headline was 'Adam Lanza hated his mother he shot dead because he thought 'she loved the students at Sandy Hook more than him '.…

    Until recently, the uncertainty began to fade. With the recent attacks from the group, ISIS, the fear has resurfaced, and is stronger than ever. The difference is, when the 2001 attacks took place, then President George W. Bush made it clear to the American people that there was a distinct difference between the religion of Islam and the radicals (Pipes, 2005). These people can be described as extremists, believing that those who do not believe in their faith and worship their god need to die. They feel that killing non-believers pleases their god, while people of the traditional Islamic faith believe the opposite, they carry the “love thy neighbor” mindset.…

    In Francois Heisbourg’s “The Strategic Implications of the Syrian Refugee” describes Germany has opened up their gates to over half a million civilians seeking or securing abode within the European Union and those numbers are exponentially increasing. Germany has become the center of Europe’s response to the refugee crisis. However, the excessive migration of Syrian refugees into their border has accelerated their economy and fueled political movements. Even with $2.5 billion assessed to the UNHCR-United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees-it is not enough to provide Syrian refugees a sustainable life (Heisbourg). Europe’s decisions have caused problems within their own countries for taking on other countries’ problems.…

    Many EU member states were already reluctant on being a part of the relocation agreement to relocate 160,000 refugees and the horrific terrorist attacks made matters even worse. Not only does terrorism breed fear and islamophobia it also feeds into the rise of these anti-immigrant right wing nationalist parties that have an underlying xenophobic rhetoric. To fully grasp the effect terrorism has had on an EU collective response, I will be analyzing the political positions of European leaders and policy makers on the refugee crisis after the terrorist attacks in Paris and more recently in Brussels and the rise of xenophobia in anti-immigrant right wing nationalist…
