There has been a considerable amount of political debates taking place in the European Union and the United States, which focuses on the question of how many people should be accepted or whether they should be accepted at all. The politics of accepting refugees to a country has become even trickier due to its collusion with the problem of so-called Islamic State (IS), making it difficult to persuade the frightened public while solving the refugee problem as nearly all of these people are considered to be Muslims and there is a risk that some of them might be associated with IS. This fear has grown drastically after the Paris terror attacks, making the politics of tackling this problem even more controversial. The PPLE course would allow me to gain supplementary insight into the political aspects of this
Extremist terrorist groups like ISIS, have risen up and caused a wave of fear and mistrust over the world. Desperately trying to escape their war-torn country, Syrian people try to cross the dangerous Mediterranean Sea, in hope to reach safety. A recently, it had been reported that over 500 Syrian refugees have died trying to cross the sea. Countries were lending aid to the Syrian refugees such as the UN, Turkey, and the United States. Everything changed after the Paris Terrorist Attack in 2015.
Jill Stein stated “We create refugees, and then our Democratic Party, together with the Republicans, who are also a party to this, are criminalizing them and sending them back, inhumanely.”(8) she describes the refugee crisis through a third party perspective. Because the main voices on this issue are mainly democrat or republican, a third party view is an interesting take on this issue. The Syrian refugees has had an enormous effect on Europe and will continue to call in the morals of major world powers. Many factors have caused this issue so the crisis is more complex than it appears. Many of the countries directly and indirectly affected have put into place policies and a system in order to deal with this issue.
It has been an on-going battle that seems to lead merely to failure. The southwestern states in particular have been struggling with the illegal crossing of the American border by its counter parts to the south. When main stream media broadcasts television shows on a daily basis of hundreds if not thousands of illegal aliens crossing the border every day, it is hard not to believe we are fighting a losing battle. With the technology that America has available today, the majority of Americans ask how we continue to struggle with this conflict. A number of bills have been and are currently being introduced to the House of Republicans, Senate, and the President to take a stand on this issue as well as grant a period of asylum for those that are here illegally.
Immigration is a big issue to most people in the United States, but to some people having the extra help from the immigrants is a big relief. The real question is what are they affecting that is bothering most people till this day. It all started in the 19th and 20th century when Australia Canada and even the United States of America were all accepting large numbers of immigrants to let them began their new life in a new territory but things have changed. The government is trying to keep many people out of the U.S because of the possible threat of one of them being a terrorist. The government has turned the word immigrants to a cruel word, by stating that they are ruining the U.S but inhabiting rural communities; but not only the government but the citizens of the United States.
Also, refugees cost the host country a lot of money. More recently, many Syrian refugees have been migrating into European nations and the Unite States. Starting in 2011, Syria broke out into a war. Anti-government protests began in March of 2011. Protests began to quickly escalate, and rebels began fighting back against the regime.
The ideal balance of the censorship will protect citizens from false or harmful information while not depriving people from the rights of the freedom of speech and press. Authoritarian governments all around the world are using drastic means to censor the information the people received to help them maintain power, control and influence over their citizens. Syria is the most dangerous country to report from not only because the country is ravaged by civil war but also because the people in power are working to prevent information from reaching the outside world. Governments are resisting outside information, access to the internet and some are even prohibiting the ownership of satellite dishes. During the Egyptian protests President Omar Al-Bashir created the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) to suppress coverage.
Syrian Refugee Crisis "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free..." The American ideal on dealing with refugees. Unfortunately it is not America who are the ones with a refugee crisis; it is European countries surrounding Syria. Turmoil, death and destruction, these are all problems facing Syria, causing millions of refugees to be displaced with little aid. This crisis can be solved by a complete liberation of Syria and better, reinstated government. Syria has been in turmoil since 1920.
The war is now widely seen as a stalemate, while thousands die and tens of thousands flee. Yet, Lebanon officially maintains a diss... ... middle of paper ... ...onomic output. However, the fighting in Syria and the associated resurgence of sectarian tensions in Lebanon have severely jolted the country's tourism industry." I come from a nation that's almost half the size of New Jersey, but where more than 16 religious sects live together. Despite the tension that comes from this, Lebanese people unite on issues that threaten their country's existence.
There obviously must be something wrong or missing in our society for the nurturing system set up by our government to end in angered cases of violence and even murder. Can it be that the ongoing debate over the amount of immigrants and asylum-seekers allowed to inhabit Britain annually has been an easy attraction for public criticism and has consequently spurred racism? This kind of control and power over another human's future and identity has led to the government disregarding immigrants' statuses as equals, a fault that has rubbed off in to our immediate society. The most critical of our government's handling of the situation would be the British media. Any fault results in widespread newspaper coverage.
