Refugees are immigrants seeking some
place to live in a foreign country because
their own has become unstable for them.

This is what I would say is the the definition of a refugee. From my experience
in talking with one, I can sense the
difficulty in living in another country.

Refugees are guests in the foreign
country and God's laws require that
people treat them as natives. England,
Britain, or the UK, whatever it is
referred to as a whole, needs to
honor this reality.

From my Irish Catholic side of me I
probably talking in my right mind
even though I am an ocean's throw
away from the situation. One day
hopefully a true freedom will exist
in the UK, that is understood to all.
