Refugee deal with USA

Of all the crazy schemes that our so-called 'leaders' have dreamt up this is one of the most absurd I have heard in a while. Oh yes lets just swap refugees.. "you send us yours and we will send you ours!"

Well "Hello?" where is the logic in that! and how much good money are we going to throw away on that scheme? Why not just spend that money on settling these people in. On helping these people - so incredibly dislocated from their homes and lands - not sending them off on yet another terrifying journey to dislocate them further.

Let us wake up and start to care for the dislocated peoples of this planet - instead of trying to shuffle them under the carpet, leave them in outposts that are so arid of human kindness and love that they are forever damaged.
