Not only that, but they do it by the millions, moving in independent crowds step by step on the grounds that there is security (Acuesta, 2017). The explanations for their movement include issues such as social, racial, religious and political persecution, war, climate change, hunger and gender orientation.

Over nine million Syrians alone have been displaced since 2011! If someone took three people who originate from Syria, chances are, one of them has been displaced from their homes. Millions of people are attempting to escape the horrible terrorist groups located in Syria, and the strain on European countries to house refugees is endless, but, to put less stress on European countries, refugees can go to countries nearby to their home, paid for by European countries.
