Rohingyas are the Muslim community of Myanmar

"Rohingyas are the Muslim community of Myanmar"- While about 1 to 1.3 million Rohingyas are projected to live in Myanmar. They are not exclusive to there as they are a culture. The Main problem with deporting with deporting Rohingyas to Myanmar is why they are fleeing from it in the first place. If you not aware the government of burma(myanmar) is currently cracking down on this culture which include extrajudicial killings and rapes. Not only the government but also Hindu Mobs are now combatting the Rohingyas. According to BBC, UN officials stated that the ultimate goal of this crackdown could be racial cleansing. The burmese government does not even grant them citizenship rights. Multiple Governments back the Rohingya in this Situation including the US and UN. These people are not illegal immigrants they are refugees fleeing persecution so you should not send them back to Myanmar so they will persecuted again. If you are from the US, this is practically a example of what brought the first colonists of the Plymouth Colony to America, persecution. It would be like telling the Plymouth Colonists that they had to go back to England and face arrest. However this is more then just arrests, the Rohingya Crisis has even been called "A Crime against Humanity".

From where? From Bangladesh? Since the govt. of Myanmar is in the process of killing all Rohingyas in its jurisdiction and since deporting Rohingyas means delivering them that jurisdiction for slaughter, isn't deportation being used in this context as a euphemism for murder?
