Really? Support for this statement? If there is nothing special about these people why haven’t the whole populations followed their “human instinct”?
The final paragraph reads pretty simply as I don’t understand why people think this is our problem? Unfortunately, I think that you are missing the point that David was making. In attempting to only deal with the immigrants/refugees issue after they have become refugees you are ignoring the fact that there is a reason that they are refugees in the first place (oppression/war/poverty/following human nature) and that by not dealing with that problem (when you don’t have millions starving and drowning on boats) it is costing you a lot more in impact on your society (higher crime/people on welfare/costs to immigration services/etc.). So really these people who are starving at and around your borders are your problem and your governments problem either way. Europe and Europeans in particularly have a lengthy history of ignoring what was going on outside their borders as “someone else’s issue”, that history has proven to be disastrous especially when the issue was forced upon them. I would urge you to reconsider that it might not only be your problem but one that you want to consider with more empathy.
