Refugees are often forced to flee their home due to war just like Ha. Today, more than 60 million refugees from the Middle East have fled their homes due to the advancement of ISIS (Graham,1). Like Ha, their lives will also turn “inside out” as they face a large amount of harassment from wherever they are able to find safety, but eventually they will find peace with whomever they are surrounded by and turn “back
Human beings are obligated to treat other human beings with respect and kindness. When they aren’t fulfilling their duties as human beings, it is also a person’s duty to stand up for each other and keep peace, morality, and humanity at the center of life. Syrian refugees are the unfortunate group of people that have been affected by the negligence of humankind. They are being dehumanized by their own people and by treatment that has no excuse or justification to be executed. The same crisis that is taking place in the middle east can happen anywhere at anytime, all it takes is corruption and humanity’s inherently evil nature to dismantle moral civilization.
The foundations for protecting refugees and migrants are a humane approach to human suffering and adherence to international humanitarian law. An improved screening and resettlement process would also improve the West's muddled response to today's displacement crisis. Introduction of the Immigration crisis Migrants and refugees flooding into Europe from Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia have presented European leaders and policymakers with their greatest challenge since the debt crisis. The International
This is an event many Americans felt was necessary to end the war with a country that would fight till death to bring honor. However, many Japanese people felt this was a needless war crime that resulted in deaths of innocent civilians. It is much easier for Americans to relay this event as a factual occurrence, but to those still feeling and have felt the
To. Mrs. Hopkins, Recently, I have read your controversial and callous article ‘If Britain is prepared to provide an all-inclusive resort service for asylum seekers, the least they can do is wear a bloody wristband.’ From a student with a family member who has experienced being a refugee, I know that the issues regarding asylum seekers and refugees are critical in the modern society. Therefore, I feel that your article, mostly oversimplified and prejudiced, could mislead lots of readers to have undesirable views on those people who are in need.
As a result, all Japanese were discriminated in the U.S.A. as biased perceptions were already set in their minds. They were judging the Japanese as the whole, just because the attack of a small part of the
Leaders and governments around the world have labelled refugees as being a burden on their country either directly or indirectly. These leaders only see them as people who are trying to get into their country to escape the civil war, but fail to see that the refugees are also risking their lives in the process. At present, there are approximately 54.5 million refugees that are displaced, the largest refugee crisis the world has ever seen and they have nowhere to go. The question of doing the right thing and taking them in has been squashed due to various reasons and it appears to be that each country has adopted the ‘each man for himself’ policy by stating that it is their duty to only look after its citizens and no one else.
In the Anonymous Letter to Attorney General Biddle, the person brings up specific reasons how the violation of rights occurred. “In the case of the Nisei it is a complete abrogation of American citizen’s rights… As for the Issei—by what right do we discriminate against them as aliens when we won’t allow them to become citizens?” (Anonymous, March 16, 1942). This quote questions the justification the U.S. government used to lock up the Japanese Americans.
In my opinion, the Japanese were still trying to show that they were Americans. They were complying with people putting them into the internment camps and they burned all of their heritage. Honestly, they were not doing anything un-American, but, because of their race, they were targeted. Arresting someone based on race is not constitutional, but we still see it today.
When Pearl Harbor was attacked, Japanese Americans were suspected of spying on the US Government and selling information to Japan. This was enough reason for President Franklin D. Roosevelt to authorize the deportation and incarceration of over 110,000 Japanese Americans, using Executive Order 9066. This was not justified, and was not fair, to the Japanese Americans. 62% of the internees were United States citizens, and 99% of all Japanese Americans were not spies. Executive Order 9066 was an order signed and issued during World War II by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
After the attack on Pearl Harbor discrimination against Japanese Americans was greatly increased. Many people were suspicious of Japanese American involvement “Fear, and suspicion grew of the sizeable Japanese American community in the U.S” (Japanese American Internment). These suspicions combined with the already present racism against Japanese fueled the idea of Japanese internment, greatly violating their civil rights “Based on those fears, combined with a long history of anti-Japanese immigrant sentiment, the U.S. government forced more than 110,000 Japanese Americans living along the West Coast into
The war in Iraq 20 March 2003 was the day everything changed, this was the day Americans stepped foot onto that foreign desert land that we now know of as Iraq. Many people have their own opinion about if the United States made the right decision deciding to go to war with this country. There are both positive and negative attributes that have come from us going to war. As stated before Americans are either for this decision or against. Personally, I am against us going to war due to: the lies and perception of Iraq 's weaponry, the amount of money that has been spent on the war, the amount of lives taken, and foremost the illegal actions that were taken to start the war with Iraq.
Finally, from the Syrian civil war, 250,000 unfortunate people have died. When multitudes of people migrate to one country, that country would, in turn, become extremely pressured. “The pressures caused by massive influxes of people can be overwhelming”(“What's Driving the Global Refugee Crisis?”). Every year, Germany alone spends 21.7 billion dollars on anything which is refugee related, and with oncoming demand in Germany, this number continues to grow higher. The European Refugee Crisis has also displaced nine million Syrians’ homes, making it troublesome for countries to house them.
