  • Refugees are helpful in building economy.

    People of different culture start residing in a place. Diversity of a place grows. When it comes to economy refugees compensate the investment consumed and provide a very remarkable growth in the economy even by using the workforce on Small Businesses. Many great intellects , leaders, entrepreneurs , philanthropists are also groomed in such conditions and take the standards to a very higher levels.

  • Refugees benefit the economy.

    According to The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, refugees and immigrants contribute an estimated $11.6 billion every year. This is just one scenario where they positively impact the American economy. They also make up 16% of small businesses in America, which is once again, extremely important to the economy.

  • They should not

    A governments job is to help and serve their people and their people should not be forced to go through hardships and experience violence because of problems other people are facing. The migrants in Europe are mostly men --72% and 21% of them are Syrian. It is the peoples choice who comes into their country as they will be the ones to deal with the problems that come with it.

  • More Countries in Debt

    More countries will be in debt if the countries get the refugees into their country. There are more than 200 countries in external debt and only four countries are not in debt. Why should the countries help them if they are in debt. They are not even their citizens. National interests should be prioritized.

  • Governments should not prioritize the humanitarian needs of refugees over their own people

    A government still has an obligation to uphold its self-interests and more generally the best interests of its citizens, regardless of what melt-downs may be occurring in the outside world.
    Governments exists to care for their own citizens nor for everybody. It must always prioritize its own national interests. Otherwise we would have a global government over individual governments.
    Besides, people need to realize that terrorists are entering our country pretending to be struggling refugees and American takes them in.
    The House Homeland Security Committee reported that terrorists settled in Bowling Green, Kentucky, after killing American soldier.
