Oh, this. We had a long discussion in my law class on this news, and I mentioned it in a report i did as well.

Not entirely shocking. I would have expected it as i've seen similar incidents before. it isn't going to benefit any of us though, i promise you. It won't help win the war on terrorism.

I know this is a few days old, but I'll comment anyway.

Actually most refugees do only go to countries bordering the one they are fleeing from. It's one of the reasons that Pakistan, for example, has a huge number of refugees. Countries in central Africa also have a lot of refugees due to the unstable situation in many countries in the region.

To hear Western European governments talk, you'd think all the world's refugees came to Western Europe, when in fact it's less than 2% of the total number of refugees.

true, I hate old saying such as "2 wrongs don't make a right", but they are often true

make sure your immigration rules are strict
and if you really feel you need to deport people then be a real tough guy and deport all of them instead of singling out people of a certain race
