    Are refugees different from us? Does it mean that someone who is less
    fortunate is less human?

    You can see it in every newspaper - ' a game of human pass-the-parcel' . On one side nameless, faceless, desperate refugees trying to enter Western Countries and on the other side, Western Countries  trying to get rid of them and pass them around...a new game of century, can we call it :
    ' New humanitarian game' ?

    You could find the answer to your question by asking yourself if you are different from a Refugee. 

    If you, Beata Stasak are less fortunate, does it make you less human?

    If you can answer that from the heart, you've got the answer to your question.

    Best Wishes.  smile

    You don't understand what refugee status imparts - it's legal asylum, granted by DHS/ICE and the State Dept., from a real or perceived threat of serious injury from another country. Those who are automatically granted asylum once inside the US include North Vietnamese, North Koreans, Cubans because were they to return they'd probably be murdered like so many unfortunate predecessors. Apparently Donald Rumsfeld was litigated for having marched a Gitmo detainee out of the frying pan, into the fire in such a way.

    Einstein was something of a refugee; Germany's loss, our gain.
