Immigration (Syria)

How would it feel to see one whole country die off because we wouldn't help them. You might not know that there are many Syrian Refugees struggling to survive in their country. Many are running out of their country to come to America because they have suffered from war and lack of resources. If they stayed they would only get killed.

Dear Future President,

According to website, “An estimated 11 million Syrians have fled their homes since the outbreak of the civil war in March 2011.” This showed that many people in Syria are scared that they will not survive so they fled their home for safety. This is important because many Syrian people are suffering in their country because war. They should not be denied in entering America because over their lifetime they have been facing war, and many other dangerous stuff. If they are deported back then they will only faced death. Many Syrian Refugee choice the America because they feel it is a safe place where they can live and make better lives for themselves.

In addition, According to website, also comments on this idea when they write, “4.8 million have fled to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Iraq, and 6.6 million are internally displaced within Syria.” Basically, this is saying that not all country allowed syrian refugee in. They feel they don't have enough resources for the refugee. This is important because it showed that not all country have equal equality. This expresses to all people because this issues does not only affect syria, but also other poor developing country. Especially it is important to you the next president because you have the rights to give opportunity for all refugee entering the country. We need to help these refugee by letting them in America because other country don't allowed them, so they won't have to face suffering in their country again.

Finally, in the article, Syria refugee crisis FAQ: What you need to know, states, “The children of Syria have experienced more hardship, devastation, and violence than any child should have to in a thousand lifetimes,” (Dr. Christine Latif). By this, Dr. Christine Latif means that for many children in syria they are living inside war, they see everything that is going on. They don't know what is physically happening, but they can vision the destruction and violence that has happened. This is important because a lot of children are faced with death in the country. The children don’t know what is happening to them, because in their mind they feel safe.

From this, we can learn that the most contributing factors cause Syrian Refugee to fled was because of war. We should help out those refugee that are need of our helped. Make America better place for everyone. Now, there are many other various of reason Refugee immigrate to America, but my idea of why some Refugee choose to come to America is because they saw freedom that they will live freely, also to escape from war, poverty, and to make better lives for themselves and their children. America provide many opportunity for their wish and their desire needs.
