The Top International refugee crisis

I’m going to speak about the international refugee crisis

Immigration is the international movement of people into a destination country of which they are not natives or where they do not possess citizenship in order to settle or reside there, especially as permanent residents or naturalized citizens, or to take-up employment as a migrant worker or temporarily as a foreign worker
A refugee, according to the United Nations Convention relating to the Status of Refugees,is a person who is outside their country of citizenship because they have well-founded grounds for fear of persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, and is unable to obtain sanctuary from their home country or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail themselves of the protection of that country or in the case of not having a nationality and being outside their country of former habitual residence as a result of such event, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to their country of former habitual residence

These two are the definition of Wikipedia for the voices “immigration” and “refugee”.

The main problem is that in Europe a lot of immigrants an refugees from Egypt,Libya,Syria etc… are arriving ,because in their country there is some war or conflict and they hope that in Europe they will be able to get a job. So countries like Greece and Italy that are near to the north Africa have to receive too many immigrants and refugees but they can’t because of their economical difficulties.

Italy and Greece want help from the other European countries like England,France and Germany but they don’t want refugees and so they are not helping with this problem. The solution for this problem is to help the country that have difficulties, both the country that have to help the refugees and the country that have war and conflicts.

But there is another problem: “What is the general opinion of the public towards refugees?”.In the countries that are helping with refugees there are some political party that want to reject and “kick away” the refugees and now the public opinion is divided in who wants help refugees and who doesn’t want them. Indeed there are some problems about health and security but I think that these people should be receive with all the regards after a long journey. I think that there is not a country that should receive refugees but these countries should cooperate to find a solution. These are the number of immigrates in some countries in the world USA 45.785.090, US 7.824.000, France 7.439.000, Australia 6.468.640, Italy 5.514.437, Greece 1.133.000, Canada 7.284.069, Norway 344.000. I think that we shouldn’t send troops to resolve the problems, because we have seen that this doesn’t solve anything so we should recall them.

This picture shows the countries that are receiving refugees in 2013

In Italy, my country the immigration is not completely negative thing because the family in Italy makes few babies and so we have a steady population decline and the immigration stabilizes this decline.

Unfortunately recently there were some terrorist attacks and the people are now very scared about refugees because they think that these refugees can be a threat. But its’ true that this increases the risk of attacks but no need to evict poor people that escape from war an conflicts. I live in one of the most famous city in the world ,so I’m a little bit scared, but I would like to help refugees because I remember that we were also refugees in America and so we should better understand the situation.
