The impact of the word "refugee" goes a little deeper than to call them displaced, homeless, etc.
"refugee camps" comes to mind..
Its the graver term, more solemn. Does it matter? It does to pompous arsses who want to have a "label" for these poor souls.

They call them that, (refugees) because that is what they are.
Why would they have called them "screwed"?
