    Any Refugee Families Here?

    My mother, grandmother and aunt were refugees from World War 2. They were first taken in by Sweden and after being vetted for a year by Canada.

    Not since the 1600's!
    My friend is from a refugee family--she was born in China to Austrian Jews who had fled because of Hitler, and they ended up in Cleveland. I don't think she got here until she was about twelve.

    Some of my family came here from Ireland to escape English justice. Others came later to escape Irish justice.

    Speaking of refugees, I have lately been seeing many references from (mostly European mainstream) media that Uganda is the new caring community for refugees, that country is taking in many refugees.

    This is a representative article

    The United States should take heed! We should emulate this kinder, gentler country with"progressiive, forward thinkng policies."

    I guess when you murder a measurable percentages of your population, and another large percentages dies oF AIDS, you need immigrants to populate your country. And what a great deal, you get one acre.
