Since then, the United Nations estimates more than 190,000 people have died in the clashes between President Bashar Al-Assad's government and rebel forces who want him out.” As you may know, Bashar Al-Assad is the person behind all this is. The Syrian Revolution and Animal Farm have many things that are comparable. Both Bashar
Right now hundreds of refugees are fleeing the war ravaged country of Syria with nothing but what they can carry. The United States does have a responsibility to take in the refugees because we are the great “Melting Pot” of the world, we help those in need and we stop those who are harmful. We are not doing any of the refugees a favor by turning them away at our gates, those who argued so strongly against the deporting of illegal immigrants, this is just as bad because these people need our help. The war in Syria has caused people to leave everything they love, their home and their country to find somewhere safe. That safe place should be the U.S, our country is safe and large enough to support these people 's so why are we turning them away.
In a Gallup poll conducted, 63 percent of Americans said that immigration is a “good thing” for the country. But another poll conducted, found that 53 percent of Americans don’t want to accept any Syrian refugees. It shows that not only are the immigration offices stereotyping and producing the characteristics of these victims, but so are we. It was France who promised to take in 30,000 Syrian refugees after the Paris attacks ; it was America who implied ideals of hate and of fear towards these refugees after the Paris
The Syrian refugees, like any other person in crisis, are just like any other human being. They are doctors, teachers, scientists and students, that now wake up to find their lives torn apart by tragic conflicts, leaving the desperate for hope. As Kenneth Roth (executive director of Human Rights Watch) states that: “Political leaders should not let the demagogues change the subject by fear mongering about asylum-seekers. Those moving toward Europe, though numerous, are manageable.” The Syrian refugee crisis isn’t a crisis if we don’t let it be one. Just until the conflicts in the Middle East settle down, these people will need a place to stay.
Before the Syrian crisis, Kenya a country in east Africa hosted the world’s largest refugee camp, Dadaab, the refugee camp is home to approximately half a million refugees fleeing the conflict in neighboring Somalia. Humanitarian organizations such as the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), Red Cross, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and donors spearhead the settlement on refugees. Among the prominent individuals who have taken up the role of community development and service to refugees and children is actress Angelina Jolie. Community development and service to refugees seek to improve the living conditions of refugees by providing physical and psychological support. It involves
The most common type would be refugees. Because of differnt reasons such as war, or political issues, there was a hudge amount of illegal/legal migrants across the boarder between egypt and libeya. There is 102,334 refugees estimated from libeya, and 70,026 from West bank and gaza strip; Sudan:13,475 Sryia: 133,862 Somalia:7,365. However, recently, Egypt government has responded to the refugees from Libya, now Egypt government has raised the requirements for refugees, now they need visa to cross the boarder. This decision has made the refugee in Egypt decreased in percentage.
As from the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948 “ the Palestinian refugee issue is one of the most central and politically sensitive dimensions of the Israeli-Palestian conflict”. During the first Arab-Israeli war between 1947 and 1949 more than 750,000 Palestinians fled or were forced to leave their homes. Twenty years later during the Six Days War against its Arab neighbours, Israel occupied the last Palestinian territory, the West Bank and Gaza and with it forced an other 300,000 Palestinians to leave. These people fled to the neighbouring Arabic states of Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and Iran. Today the Palestinian community is assumed to be the largest national group among refugees worldwide.
These situations need to be improved in order to protect their rights and to serve a better future for them. This can be seen through the study that has been conducted by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Siah Poh Chua (2016) in order to help refugees move on. This study is conducted to understand the quality of life among child refugees in Selangor. The findings prove that the quality of life affected by three core factors include their experience of deportation, level of education and their father’s employment.
In 1979 the refugees had reached the official number of 1.3 million with more than half established in the north (Ahmed & Green, 1999). This had put tremendous pressure on the nation’s economy and Barre oppressed those refugees unrelentingly. Barre’s regime was especially hostile to those refugees in the north, particularly the people of the Issaq clan; in addition Barre used the refugee crisis as an excuse to request foreign aid. These northerners were barred from working in the government and many of the Ogaden refugees were recruited by the Western Somali Liberation Front (WSLF) and were terrorizing the Issaq people living in the region to the point where they feared the WSLF more the Ethiopian Army (The African Watch Committee, 1990). The actions of the Barre regime and the subjugation of the Issaq people led to a civil war and the region which is known as Somaliland declared its
Surely they’d know most refugees are not terrorists but rather human beings searching for freedom and safety? But out of the blue, it hit me nearly as hard as the tomatoes thrown at me prior the interview. Just as there are Syrian terrorists, there are refugee hating Germans such as the violent protesters and others who treat people with different beliefs or ethnicity as rubbish. Although they are usually nowhere near as dangerous or revolting as ISIS, I see them in a similar light; they are clearly not the majority, but are the loudest. After having thought of this strange reality, I had an entirely different understanding of the protesters as well as the safety precautions put in place and even had an appreciation for all the government had done to provide security while allowing refugees such as me
