The US should have offered refugee status to South Koreans following the Korean War. The South Koreans have vastly different view to the North Koreans. The US are clear allies to the South Koreans and should have extended a hand of support to help their fellow friends. That may have been reciprocated in the future during a time of need.
I do not believe the United States should have offered refugee status to South Koreans following the Korean War. I think they should have opened up the ability for them to immigrate however. For the most part South Korea has been liberated as the result of the Korean War, so it is good that they have been there to build their community.
Yes, I think that some South Koreans should have been offered refugee status in the United States following that war. We did use a lot of local citizenry to further our goals during that conflict. The least we could do in return for their service was offer them a chance to relocate.
South Koreans were not in need of refugee status within the United States (US). They were free of the oppressive Kim Jung regime. They had a country of their own. Providing them refugee status would have weakened the country as it was being built. By not promoting the mass exodus, and giving support, a new country was formed.
The United States should of not offered refugee status to South Koreans following the Korean War because America can not handle an unlimited amount of people, no matter how hard we try. America would become a third world nation if we welcomes everyone that wanted to come here because they want refugee status.
