Dear Independent Press Standards Organisation, I am writing this as I am certainly worried of the use of language when describing immigrants and immigration. The word “Migrant” is being used as a neutral term in the past. It says nothing about their entitlement to cross that border or whether they should be." But it is worrying that the word has recently developed a sour note. It is being used to mean "not a refugee".
EU border agency Frontex said the number of migrants surpassed the 100,000 mark in a single month for the first time since it had begun keeping records in 2008. The German government had earlier forecast that 450,000 asylum seekers could arrive in 2015, but is now set to increase that to 650,000 or higher. "It is unsustainable in the long run that only two EU countries, Germany and Sweden, take in the majority of refugees," he told German daily Die Welt. Here some statistics and Graphics: In the case of Sweden: Sweden has signed the UN Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. This entails, among other things, that Sweden shall examine each asylum application individually.
In general, those who travel over are of a working age and therefore able to pay taxes, which will contribute to economic growth. They also bring with them a raft of knowledge and skills that may be needed in the labour market. On the other hand, one of the main reasons why migrants are being presented as a threat is due to their assimilation with criminality and terrorism. More often than not, migrants are talked about in terms of being illegal, meaning they have entered a country without having met the criteria to do so legally. Indeed, a recent study – in relation to newspapers’ language of migration – conducted by the University of Oxford found that “illegal was the most common modifier of ‘immigrants’ throughout the 43 million word corpus” (University of Oxford, 2013) they read.
In the current political world, immigration is perceived as a horrendous concept. Presidential candidate Donald Trump, has brought further attention to the topic. Thus making it a household topic from what it used to be. Trump has made it clear that something has to be done about immigration. Despite his current attitude towards it, he does present a valid point.
One main problem that there has been back then and now has been in debate that immigration is either good thing or a problem, this has been an issue for centuries. Immigration is taken off as something invading and trespassing to others, but those who are immigrants see it as a passage of rights, the opportunity to have social justice in having equal rights even if from another country. What it means is that coming from another foreign country and relocating to a new one is referred to immigration . I would know, my father always told me I am lucky to have papers to have a education, to have more opportunities in life than what he had in his life. He said he struggled as a young kid getting out of school to go work to help his parents,
Wars, struggle and oppression have constrained more refugees than at any other time since records began to escape their country to seek refuge and safety , according to a new report from the UN refugee agency (News Stories, 18 June 2015).Refugees are people who are outside of their country of citizenship. These people were affected by so much tragedy, they cannot depend on their country for aid or assurance. They are simply being pushed around by militants and war fighters who force them to move from place to place. What is worst, it is that these people are not responsible for all that is happening. Refugees’ lives are at stake and they are simply forced to leave their homes just to survive as long as they can.
Ali Muhammad Economy 210 Professor Rowther Immigrant issues An immigrant is someone who has citizenship of one country and living in other country. The word immigration is mean someone is between two different countries. Since the birth of America immigrant has always been hard fact. People came to America from all over the world. Immigration issues have played a large part in U.S. domestic policy.
According to the statistics of UNHCR the largest number of asylum applications in 2014 were registered in Germany (173,100), Turkey (87,800), Sweden (75,100), and Italy (63,700). The problems of the refugees arise because of the poor living standards. It starts with the camp life where people face with hunger, lack of water and rising dirtiness. A deplorable example can be shown the Harmanli camp, a former military base located in Bulgaria, where refugees eat just potatoes, rice, and bread and have serious sanitary problems. There is no medical help for the wounded and the ones who are suffering from diseases.
For these reasons, I do not consider refugees as an exception. My behavior to them is really simple a lot of times. I ignore them if they are just begging for money. I don’t even make eye contact. You may think that I am cruel but as I stated earlier a little amount of them are trustable and it is ridiculously hard to pick who need help.
Australia has accepted many refugees in 2014-2015 Australia had accepted 13,750 refugees in total. 10,500 people had came as refugees, were special humanitarian entrants and people granted onshore protection visas, 2,500 people had applied for refugee protection after reaching Australia, and 500 people came as a part of a community pilot program. This show that Australia represent the face of mercy a lot because of accepting the refugee and seeing them equally like themselves and the people in Australia do. The face of mercy should always be there, such as when they are getting out of the boat and entering Australia. The face of mercy needs to be a leader and stand up for them to guide them where to go because they need to be treated equally in
