MIGRANT VERSUS REFUGEE
1. An organism, especially an animal, that moves from one region to another (as for breeding) or that has established itself in an area where it previously did not exist.
2. An itinerant worker who travels from one area to another in search of work.
3. A person who leaves one country to settle permanently in another; an immigrant.
A refugee, in contrast to a migrant, is according to the Geneva Convention on Refugees applied to a person who is outside their home country of citizenship because they have well-founded grounds for fear of persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, and is unable to obtain sanctuary from their home country or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail themselves of the protection of that country; or in the case of not having a nationality and being outside their country of former habitual residence as a result of such event, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to their country of former habitual residence. Such a person may be called an “asylum seeker” until considered with the status of “refugee” by the Contracting State where they formally make a claim for sanctuary or right of asylum.
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
Migrants move willingly. Refugees are forced to move.
Why would anyone, settled in their lives, willingly leave their place of birth?
This is the place where their family roots were established. Leaving behind their possessions, their friends, their families … all that is familiar to them.
Only a narrow minded person would think that refugees are willingly exposing themselves, their families and their children to the dangers of escaping from their homes.
Do they have homes left or have they been bombed persistently and destroyed?
Their panoramic view is one of crumbled buildings, torn up roads, no schools, hospitals or markets.
Imagine … just try to imagine.
They have nothing left but themselves and their families.
What other option to they have?
Damn if you stay .. persecution, torture, abuse, rape, slavery.
Damn if they leave … displacement, danger, exposure, uncertainty.
They have to run an leave. And what greets them?
More of the same.
They are considered pariahs and are persecuted much more.
They are unwanted, they are a burden.
We need to keep in mind how this “mass migration” started.
What is happening to humanity?

Refugees or migrants?
A lot of words get thrown around to describe the thousands of people leaving their countries for Europe.
But are they “refugees” or “migrants”?
