If there is a bus crash, and all passengers are taken to a hospital, the first thing the emergency department will do, is set up a triage, to determine which patients are in the most need, and who will get treatment first.
I've wondered myself why this isn't being done in Europe. The Syrians are clearly the most needy, and should be given first dibs at assistance, you would think. They could easily show proof of Syrian citizenship. Make it mandatory.
Most discard their IDs so they can't be identified..... Exactly the type folks want around right?
10,000 Syrians Are Headed For The Following 180 US "Refugee Processing Centers"
For the past several weeks it seemed as if Germany had truly become the promised land for Mideast asylum seekers, primarily those seeking to escape the Syrian civil (and global proxy) war, but according to various media reports, also a material number of "ISIS-linked terrorists." Then it all came crashing down earlier today when Germany's beloved by all refugees "Mutti" said genug, and with one decision shut down the border with Austria in the process unraveling decades of customs-union progress (following promptly by the Czech Republic doing the same, with Italy expected to follow suit in the hours ahead).
Ironically, just as Europe is shutting its doors to Syrian refugees, the US is opening its own.
It is not clear how much the screening process for Syrians costs, but the US government spent $1.1 billion last year resettling 70,000 people from around the world, or almost $16,000 per head.
I have just watched the news and its frightening ... the "refugees"
are not asking for help they are demanding their rights.
These same males are the ones we are questioning in this thread, why do they not all have family, children, elderly beside them? it is about the survival of the vulnerable after all not the prime aged physically fit men who obviously did not suffer and starve from the wars and displacements in their home countries.

I've just been catching up with Aljazeera News on the latest events on the Hungarian/Serbian border, it doesn't look good.
The migrants/refugees have twice tried to break through the border fences in the last couple of hours, and were met with Hungarian riot police alongside regular police who pushed them back with tear gas and water cannons, some were hitting the refugees with batons.
The refugees then began attacking the police and throwing rocks and other similar missiles. Shocking behaviour on both sides IMO.
It's a bit calmer at the minute but likely to kick off again, they're very angry.

Do their rights take precedence over the rights of the citizens of the host country?
The rights they should be demanding are the rights they have earned in their own country. If they are so willing to fight, kill and die for their rights, then they need to turn around and return to their homes.
I hate how horrible I sound, but I owe the immigrants nothing.
I have not been handed anything in my country. I worked harder and longer than many, because being a woman in administration, automatically meant I had to prove I deserved my position.
Regardless, what little I have, it is "my" right to decide with whom and how much I share.
I have always been a live and let live kind of person.
My fears are for the safety and well being of my country and community. Where do we go when there is nothing left for the citizens of the host countries? The government claims it doesn't have enough money to provide adequate medical care, housing and food for its Veterans, let alone the poor, homeless and disenfranchised in our country. Where are they going to get the means to care for thousands of immigrants, hostile immigrants, demanding immigrants?
What do you think is going to happen when immigrants are provided for, while citizens sit hungry in the cold? I just don't see this working at all. Unless the government has been lying all along about the lack of funding. Then it will be much worse. How does it look that a government is okay with their citizens being hungry and homeless, but suddenly finds funding to provide for hostile immigrants?
I am looking for someone to come along and tell me how foolish I am. Someone to show me that I am just being a silly old lady, and show me why my fears are foundless. Otherwise I am going to remain skeptical and not very charitable.
