CAIRCO Notes
 
It is important to discern the difference between true refugees and economic migrants. True refugees can be issued shelter in a protecting country that is nearest to their country of origin. There is no need for refugees to be transported halfway around the world for shelter as mandated by the United Nations. 
 
It is also crucial to understand that the flow of refugees from Africa and the mideast will not stop this century. See World Fertility - The World's Most Important Graph.
