Homeland Security Fears

by Mary

The United States is no longer the refuge for asylum seekers it once was. Reports that France is now the number one destination for refugees could result from the fact that there are fewer asylum seekers as this article says. Or do you think that perhaps this story has something to do with asylum seekers thinking that the US is no longer a haven for people seeking refugee from tyrannical states? When did our country decide that people who are refugees should be treated like criminals even when they have committed no crimes except to ask for asylum?
