In the world today not only has there been an unseen increase in migration of people into countries like America and Germany, most especially in the past two years, but the counter measure to check it  seem not to be functioning. Most times than often people who migrate are mostly from war torn countries, or famine ridden countries. This might come as the country giving a helping hand, but the consequences are also glaring.

So we ask ourselves today wherein the problem lies in migration, mostly in the world today? Recently we have learned the hard way that the process of migration has not guaranteed enough that whoever is entering into a country is not a threat. From recent bombing in the globe by extremist groups; even after this we have no choice but still accept migrants, than leave them out there to die. So here are our problems , we have a world  which is frowning on the fact that it’s country still has to accept refugees irrespective, and the system is not giving us enough to rely on, but who are we to blame.

The increase in clashes between both religious, culture, and race, seem to have spiked s in countries, due to migration we have multiple culture living together, with different views to life, making living together in one commute almost impossible. Some could bet that in a few years we could have a global religious or racial clash, with the recent events that have been happening all in the name of allowing migration. When we look at most of the bad things accompanying migration we ask ourselves if this is worth giving a thought in any country.

The system not being omnipotent, allows some errors that has led to some clashes like the incident in Germany, where residents of Bautzen clashed with asylum seekers also the brawl between the migrants and neo-nazi locals in Germany. This goes far to show that the world, is starting to slowly turn its back to migration. Most citizens don’t want to know where you come from, before you utter a word as a refugee; you are seen as a bad influence. You won’t be able to blame them as we have refugees and migrants who are either running from war or running to create war , just like the Muslim extremists, if only the process can forewarn us of whom we allow into our country.

To think these are the only problems we would be hoping to face alone from migration, would have removed some from burden from the government, but even after this people are successful in entering the country, you find out that settling down becomes a problem. In most places the refugee camps are overfilled, and some running out of space, but the refugees keep trooping in. This creates a situation where there are less fund and health care for this people, leading them to go to extreme methods, like stealing and selling drugs to survive. So here we see a situation where both the migrants and the citizen of that country are not safe, because the system can’t afford it.

The best we can do as an association is to provide the best health care we can afford to people in the refugee camps, and go for visitations, so they know that someone out there still cares for them. This way we could sensitize the world of the problems that this people face every day, we might not be able to help everyone but it is worth it.
