The main argument against accepting refugees into our country is that it "isn't our problem." We are one species sharing one profoundly interconnected world. The privileged that own power are to blame for the oppression and marginalization of individuals in need. Not only do we have legal obligations to refugees under international law, but we also have ETHICAL obligations. Less than half of the population of syria still live in their own homes. the rest are either considered internally displaced persons, refugees, or are dead. One of the main reasons we are in these types of situations today is because for too long we have labored under the delusion that regional crisis have no global importance. Imagining any widespread human problem as belonging to someone else is catastrophically misguided. For example: an ebola outbreak in liberia would be ‘just a liberian problem right? well sure until its suddenly a nigerian problem and a german problem, and an american problem as it spreads drastically. The syrian civil war has been proven that it is not just a syrian problem. Like how the war has directly benefited to the growth of ISIS, a terrorist organization that kills not only syrians and iraquis but etheopians, turks, AMERICANS!
