THE “BURDEN” OF REFUGGES.

There is often a misunderstanding about the economic impact of refugees. Over the past few years there has been an exponential rise in rhetoric against refugees. They are often characterized as “parasites” or “terrorists”.

The fact is that refugees do not abuse government funding. On an average, refugees pay $21000 more in taxes than they ever receive in public benefits- $20.9 billion in taxes in 2015.The fact is that not a single refugee has been involved in any terrorist act in the USA. Refugees are ever grateful to their host countries.

The fact is that most refugees bring with them entrepreneurial skills and contribute to the local economy. Many studies have clearly shown the beneficial impact of refugees on local economies. In 2015, refugees generated 402 billion in income.

The fact is that refugees are not born as refugees, these are often educated, professional, business people who have been displaced from their homes due to religious, racial or ethnic persecution. They are good and honorable people. Einstein was a Refugee….! They deserve our support.
