The refugee crisis has dominated headlines for months, and with good reason. Hundreds of thousands of people have been left without a stable home, forcing them to make the dangerous trek from the Middle East into Europe where the welcome hasn't always been warm. I think that New Zealand should step up and accept more refugees to alleviate Europe's already strained resources.
Yes, I believe that New Zealand should accept more refugees because the Syrian people are fleeing a war-torn area in order to seek a better lives for their families. Countries like New Zealand have to do more to show support to the Syrian people and help bring order to the Middle East.
With the state of world affairs increasingly violent in some regions, in my opinion, the countries capable of offering safe harbor to those forced to flee their homelands due to security concerns, must do so. If New Zealand is capable of providing necessary housing and services to those in need, then they should not be excluded from this responsibility.
Wealthy countries should all probably accept more refugees, as long as they have systems in place to support them. New Zealand can probably support more refugees. With so many people seeking refuge from life-threatening situations, it is the moral thing for safe countries to do to accept them into their borders.
