Should Britain Take More Refugees?
Debate Rounds (3)
The Refugee Crisis Is Huge Throughout Europe. Should Britain Do More?
I accept. I don' think Britain should do more.
Hundreds of Thousands of refugees have escaped turture, murder and many other things to come to europe. They need a home. Germany has taken 800,000 and the best britain can do is 20,000 over the next five years. I believe we should be doing all we can as is our duty as humans to support these refugees and accept them into our country.
Britain has no obligation to help the Syrian refugees. The Syrian refugees come from a region that is controlled by the Islamic State. By letting these refugees in, Britain is seriously putting it's national security at risk. This war was going on since 2011, so why is it suddenly that all of them want to become refugees? It's just a plan by ISIS to hide in the refugee horde, and spread radical Islam across the globe. Europe already is under attack by Islam, and by making it easier for terrorists, they are just making the problem worse.
So, what do I propose? I'm not saying that we should do nothing to help these people, countries like Saudi Arabia have done nothing to help these people, and it's their responsibilty has regional powers to take charge and help. The West can send in aid and supplies to help them, but that all I support.
So what youre saying is that every refugee is an Isis agent. There are people out there who need a home, they need support that britain can give. Sending aid to syria is good but how is it going to help the millions already in europe. Would you force them to return home to face persecution and torture. Would you just let them flounder in europe short of food and vital equipment. Im not saying britain should take them all but we should step up to the plate and join germany in setting the standard for other countries to follow.
To the person I am debating. This is not a political or an economic matter but a moral one. If we want to be a kind, caring society then we should act like one.
My source from last round
No, Im not saying that all Syrian Refugees are ISIS agents.
There are millions of people who need a home. How come nobody says anything about them? Give a me a reason why we should specifically care about these refugees? In my opinion helping our national security is more important. I have given reasons why. You haven't really explained why we must, except you are making an appeal to emotion argument.
That's all I have to say.
