 - Are immigrants from war-torn places creating unnecessary burdens for other countries? 

 

Taking even just the Syrian refugees as an easy example, there are millions of them, without exaggerating there are seriously millions of them leaving Syria and other war-torn areas. 

Now I understand it's definitely difficult to fight back when some group or groups or terror organisation tries to take over, but do you think the people escaping from those countries are actually doing something good? or would you argue that they are just making the problem worse?

With the millions opposed to the terror/bad organisations, couldn't they have just worked together and fought back against those groups and taken their countries back by themselves?

Or do you think that might have been an impossibility even though the refugees are in greater numbers?

 

Let's talk about that.
