On Thursday, September 10 President Barack Obama informed his management staff to prepare for an influx of Syrian refugees.
The United States will accept 10,000 Syrian refugees over the next year in an attempt to cope with the current refugee crisis. But is it enough? And what about the millions of refugees who desperately struggling to survive?
Members of Congress and advocates help refugees on a daily basis commented on the proposed by President Obama relatively small number. They believe the “humanitarian crisis” is not being addressed properly. Some say the US conflict Iraq is to blame for ISIS and riots against the government in 2011, which pushed out 10.6 million Syrians in their country.
According to Reuters, Democratic Representative David Cicilline has called for the acceptance of 60,000 refugees by the end of 2016. Religious groups have also asked the president to accept Syrian refugees in numbers upwards of 100,000. Many believe the US It fails to keep up with the global problem of refugees fleeing from countries at war or unjust. Germany accepted 20,000 migrants during the week so alone, and plans to accept about 800,000 migrants to the end of the year.
is easy to compare numbers. Germany has been openly accepting people for years, even before the crisis began refugees. For a long time they have been trying to increase the number of workers and build a stronger economic system -. And it works for them
The US unfortunately, does not have the convenience of opening their doors. Terrorism and anti-American ideologies has put the United States into something like a freeze when it comes to accepting refugees. White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters, “I feel confident in telling you that the president will not sign a process that cuts corners when it comes to the basic safety and security of the American people and the American territory. ”
The US It is in trouble, along with several other countries, and finger pointing over which country is better based on the number of refugees may not be the best solution, for political or refugees. At this very moment there are people, human beings, out there fighting for their lives. Fighting day and night to reach their parents, children and themselves to safety. The global refugee crisis affects the whole world, and can no longer be ignored.
But what can you do? Hard to say, and news coverage is often daunting. Recent news has reported that half of Syria’s population has been forced to leave their homes. Does half of all US residents displaced imagine? Once inside Syria, 6.5 million people have been displaced, and there are 4.1 million refugees abroad. According to a CNN report, 310,000 have died and 10.6 million stay home.
Most Syrian refugees have found refuge in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. And there is much to return, most seeking political asylum in Europe in order to escape the nightmare forever. Interestingly, oil-rich Gulf states have not had in many Syrian refugees, despite the similarities in language, religion and culture.
The alternative to this growing problem is not an easy task. There must be a global effort to address this crisis effectively. This situation will also have an impact on the global economy, so if you live in Turkey and Alaska, all the effects of the refugee crisis will be felt over time.
