    last few months i saw that lots of African and Asian immigrants tries to cross the sea and come to Europe for a better life..i think it is correct from their point of view..because directly as well as indirectly america leaded European nations should take the responsibility of those conflicts which are happen in their countries...specially in labia,Iraq,Syria,yeman,Afghanist an...further from 15 to 19 centuries we went there and robbed them..so this is their time to take back something what we took from them..

    We have to be realistic about what we can do and how best to do it. I firmly believe that more people benefit in more significant ways when we put the money into fixing the causes of diaspora, rather than rewarding the few with the connections and resources to make the journey. For every refugee that arrives here (and I mean the genuine ones, not the "I've been caught committing document fraud and need to hash up a statutory defense" ones, because it's not fair to lump Albanian criminals in with Syrian children), you will have many more in squalid conditions in camps, waiting for a normality to resume in their home that is not forthcoming. Asylum picks up a few pieces, but it doesn't tackle the lions share of misery that persecuted minorities and people in need of humanitarian protection due to conflict face.

    Your post is ignorant of history. White Europeans have also been slaved by Africans and Arabs, just look at the Barbary slave trade (16th to 19th century), Arab slave trade and Ottoman slave trade.

    I do agree that in countries where we have intervened more recently (Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya) that we should take more responsibility.
