Bangkok's Somali refugees persecuted and living in fear

In the UK, 60% of asylum applications fail, so last year that was about 15,000 refusals, there were only 6,788 deportations, of course not all of those who seek asylum get deported, many start appeals processes meaning their deportation is delayed and sometimes it takes years, and then there are those who are affluent and who are permitted to stay on other visas, and then those who simply disappear.

 

 

"Simply disappear" how? Where?

They disappear off the radar of the authorities, presumably they find a place to live and a job.

Wow, nothing like a thread on persecuted minorities in a foreign land to bring out all the racists, xenophobes, islamophobes and petty minded bigots from the closet. I guess this is a reflection of the rise of the UKIP-Brexit-Le Pen-Trump phenomenon, and is a sad indictment on the lack of open-mindedness and empathetic human values that festers in certain social sub-groups in many Western nations these days. Broken Britain and utterly trashed and forlorn middle America are two of the most desperate examples of the places that spawn such mindsets, but other countries are not far behind.

Controversial to say it, but they should stay in their own countries and sort them out even if it means sacrificing yourself. Many countries have civil wars and countless have lost their lives to make these great safe countries that every hard luck case thinks they are entitled to enter and leech off. Sure, women and children should be entertained till they can be safely returned but military aged fit men should stop being cowards and save their countries instead of just running away like pussies. Shameful.

Unfortunately you will get lambasted for making a statement like this, but what you say is true. The people who migrate away from problem areas are usually the fittest, the smartest, the most dissatisfied and yet the best equipped to stay and make changes to their own country. What they are actually doing is abandoning their countrymen, the weaker, the poorer the less healthy ones who aren't equipped to flee their impoverished nations. So the problems are actually intensified for those left behind. Are we really supposed to encourage this? It doesn't help to solve the fundamental problems, that can only be solved from within.

Africans and others were outraged about Trump's statement "s...hole countries". If Trump is wrong and the countries are the opposite i.e. paradise, why do Somalis, Nigerians etc. run away from paradise?

How has Ethiopia's meddling politics that have resulted in an endless civil war in Somalia been caused by aid?  And no, the whole of Somalian society does not accept violence, hence the large number of refugees escaping the violence, and if you think they take the violence with them then you do not know them, they care about their future, they educate their children very well, in fact their children are now the highest achieving in the UK.

interesting because the small bit of research i just did came up with something completely different so please do share a link or 2. you see a lot of somalians moved to the part of London my mother lives in years ago and whenever i go back i have noticed that now the area is plagued by teenage gangs of somali origin into petty street crime and i generally go by what i see.

like most lefties you cant see reality. get out and take off the rose glasses and you might see it.

at least read your own 'signature' words - that would be a start.

"RK's family paid smugglers $2,000 to escort him on a flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, one of the few countries where Somali citizens do not require visas."

So why come to Thailand illegally, when you can legally stay in Malaysia?

Unless it was sarcasm, which I am hoping it is.

Nah, I read it as the truth.

I agree with you. Most of Europe is awash with migrants who pretend to be refugees. What do the Somalis live on in Bkk?

So true but many people live in denial about it.
