Strange isnt it, this silent refugee situation coming out of western first world countries?
I will barely escape this country with what's left of my life to the shores of where my ancestors came from circa 1890s to come to THIS COUNTRY to seek opportunity and a better life!
Part of the flaw of American character is that they believe America is some promised land-a heaven of sorts where life is finally perfect and all problems are solved by the actions of simply being an an American.
The refuge can become the prison over generations.
Its most sad that the oppression is of such a covert nature that no one sees it for what it is. All that matters is that those with the instinct to survive continue to seek better conditions no matter where they may exist.
