News just reported each refugee costs $20,000 per year. That's the equivalent of someone making about $9.50 an hour on a full time, 40 hour per week job.

and the beat goes on . During WWII, European refugees fled to Syria . Refugees crossed these same passageways 70 years ago. But they were not Syrians and they traveled in the opposite direction. At the height of World War II, the Middle East Relief and Refugee Administration (MERRA) operated camps in Syria, Egypt and Palestine where tens of thousands of people from across Europe sought refuge.

it's like abandonment....
i think this stratedgy might have worked when there were a lot fewer people on the planet, but it appears to no longer be a viable solution.
there is nowhere to run anymore
Also - have you noticed that the middle eastern muslim nations have taken in 0 refugees...


Yes, I have noticed. Islam couldn't be bothered to take in muslim refugees.

Simply because they are too busy KILLING them and anyone who gets in their way.

Peaceful religion my ass.

aw, fuck it, it's hard to fuck up the dinner bell.
just put'em all in warehouses, and play porn non stop.
porn and food for our immigrants.
their kids can learn English in our schools and their parents can just point and grunt at picture pages.
see, I have empathy and compassion for migrants.
now if only I could get Iceland to do this for me!?!?
