Not as easy as it looks
I really thought that the interactive article was good because it really highlighted how difficult it is to seek asylum. Before reading these articles I had just assumed that refugees just went to the nation they wanted to live in and applied for asylum, but clearly that is not the case. I think that in modern times we as a global nation should be more accepting to freedom of trade and movement than we are displaying with the refugee crisis in Europe. I also think that many of the European countries could use more migrants especially because of their increasing populations of elderly citizens. Many of the refugees coming from Syria are coming with a highly educated background, and these are people who can make significant contributions to a nation's economy.
