those weren't "refugees" the problem in Europe is that they are migrants and they are from all over the place, African ( North Africans mainly) Indian, from all over the Middle East and they all came with little or no ID, no vetting was done, just hordes of people swarming in. That would terrify me. We are accepting a fairly large number of actual refugees- totally different story . They have been in the system for years, vetted on multiple levels etc etc
In many parts of Syria there are no homes left to protect, no more infrastructure, nothing and nowhere safe to go. It's either occupied by ISIS or it's been destroyed. It's too late to protect them within the country and neighbouring countries like Jordan and Lebanon are taxed to the max.
We should divert some of the millions given to Israel to Jordan to help pay for the over 1 million refugees they have because even though taking them in is causing huge economic hardships, they continue to do so, because it's the right thing to do. If they got more international aid to help care for them, more refugees could stay near their homes and wait it out longer instead of relocating on the other side of the world.
It's like the worst of twenty cultures has swarmed across Europe and just kind of invaded but at the same time, there is no humane way to deal with it either. It's a cluster fuck over there
