Refugees: Futures Uncertain

The European migrant crisis began to take shape in 2015 when 1.3 million unauthorized foreign refugees entered the European Union. Most of these refugees are from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq -- all Islamic countries. Most have been waiting many weeks for paperwork processing in order to start a new future in an unfamiliar land. Some after more than several months of walking through other countries, standing in long lines for food in cold refugees camps, and sleeping side by side one another, sometimes 10-12 persons in a small room, have decided that the promised land was not their best choice after all and began to return home voluntarily, even though their homeland lacks basic human rights and needs.
