- Yes, countries have a duty to receive refugees if they signed the UNHCR Convention and yes, they should be helped to be integrated in the economical system, in the welfare system and in society cause you know, they're like us and with the same basic human rights.
Yes, but these guys are not refugees, but illegal economic migrants. Refugees tend to be women and children, these people you call "refugees" are mostly young men.
"they're like us and with the same basic human rights"
In what way are they like me? Yes, we are all humans and so on, but I don't think I share many things with them.
How much do these "basic human rights" cost from the pockets of the Europeans? That's the problem, leftists. For you guys anything is a "basic human right", you turn anything you support into a "right" in order to braiwash the people. Sorry, but to ilegally and violently storm another state, stay in this state, and then live off taxpayers' money is not a "basic human right". To be an economic burden in another country is not a human right at all. They deserve human rights, of course, but REAL human rights, and in their countries, not the leftist phony idea of "human rights".
I am not opposed to immigration, but I think it should be limited, nationals should be first at jobs and illegals should be immediately deported. Law and order should not be broken, and only givers (not takers) should be allowed. Countries are not welfare organizations.
Yes, Europe is historically, politically and economically co-responsible for this situation. If you don't understand basic history then I guess it's because you don't want to or you simply choose to ignore it.
Europe left Africa a lot of decades ago.
The Europeans of today have not done anything to Africa, and the illegals of today have not suffered colonization.
So Europeans should not feel guilty at all and owe Africans nothing.
Italians who emigrated to the US worked hard and built for them a better future but some of them also built the American Mafia and prospered within a large criminal organization by extorting, trafficking, corrupting and murdering. Every migration wave in history brings the good and the bad. You can't cherry pick migrants.
Yes, but you can expel the scum among them and let the good ones stay. But according to the progressives, that's "racist", because it's "discrimination".
"Still, most of the migrants are good, hard working and honest people looking for a better future."
I won't deny it, but I won't buy it, either. I guess you have statistics to back your claims, don't you?
I do practice what I preach but it ain't your business how I do it cause it's personal.
I also pay my taxes and I do expect and hope that my taxes are used to help people in need here and there rather than spent on bombs that brought us situations like the current Libyan one. I would also back any government support program or tax directed to help refugees and I would indeed have them under my roof if there was a shared society effort or government program in which each citizen was required to give assistance to a refugee or more according to each citizen's economical possibilities.
So you want to turn your country into a welfare organization for illegals and infiltrators. You also want to steal the citizens' money (and lives) and give it to the illegals. As I said before, thank G-d people like you are minority.
You progressives think you occupy a high moral ground and know what's best for everyone. You guys regard yourselves as the sole arbiters of what people should and shouldn’t be allowed to think and do with their own money and lives. You think you have the right to lead each others' lives! Who gave you this right, progressives?
Actually, this gives me the creeps.
And that's cause I'm a migrant myself, a lucky one indeed, a citizen of the world.
Good for you.
What about you? I guess you'd just build a wall...
What about me? Mmm... I don't know why should I tell you about my life.
What's wrong with building walls?
Funny though, all this anti-immigration bias coming from someone that comes from a people that has been migrating everywhere throughout its entire history and faced persecutions, hardships and poverty due to its migrant status.
The world only likes Jews when we are poor and oppressed and in trains heading to Auschwitz, not when we are a free people in our land and defend ourselves and our State. That's why many people can't stand a Jew giving a politically incorrect opinion.
Is this your case? Just asking. Many people is like this, I just want to know if you're like them.
