    I’d be happy if we just stopped providing council houses and benefits to the unassimulatable ‘refugees’.

    Definition of Immigrant and Refugee.
    Immigrant = anyone that migrates from their country or region of origin to a different country or region. This movement can be voluntary or coerced.
    Refugee = anyone that migrates from their country or region of origin for fear of persecution and, at the same time, feels that they will be unable to return to that area for fear of further persecution.
    The reason I’ve put this is that people use the word immigrant and refugee as meaning the same thing. It is not. Now whether we want more or less of either can be debated along those lines.
    Free migration of workers from country to country is a Libertarian and Liberty ideal.
    The accessibility to refugees fleeing from their home country – for whatever reason – is seen in the link provided.
