Human Rights Watch has criticized Saudi Arabia for deporting Somali refugees, including children to a recognized war-zone:
Especially since its civil war Somalia has had a huge diaspora.
Some cities in South Africa have changed their social and religious character within a decade of the Somalian influx.
Despite their success in business and general moral character, the overall effect is rather slum-like, and it has led to xenophobia and fears of
terrorist infiltration. Other customs like female circumcision are also wholly foreign to many places to which they flock in sizable enclaves.
Although Somalians should enjoy rights as refugees, and many bring beneficial skills, one can imagine that the US and several Western countries must
wonder why they should accommodate the constant flood of refugees.
Surely a fellow Islamic country would be better suited to their cultural needs?
Yet, Saudi Arabia has little compassion, and drops them off right back where they came from.
How do people feel about this?
