True.


I wouldn't say "nobody", but I would guess that very few people have ever heard of the UNHCR, if that's what you mean.

(except for the Italians, of course)
I wonder if the UN has a High Commissioner for every separate thing that happens or might happen?

Anyway, I don't expect the Catholic Church is taking these refugees on as permanent charity wards of the Church, and it doesn't seem likely that there are jobs waiting for them to step into... Or that they will assimilate easily into Italian life.

Gee boss, I thought that at least you would understand what UNHCR means. It turns out that all you know is what the words mean. Well, sort of?

Find out o.k., and let me know?
Thanks!

Quote:
By a wide margin, the U.S. has more immigrants than any other country in the world. As of 2015, the United Nations estimates that 46.6 million people living in the United States were not born there. This means that about one-in-five international migrants (19%) live in the U.S. The U.S. immigrant population is nearly four times that of the world’s next largest immigrant destination – Germany, with about 12 million immigrants.


So tell us again, Dink, how horrible Americans are for not taking people in from all over the world.

Chief just explained it to me.

I generally ignore the UN and the EU and the GCOIJAFP.

Oops, that's a security breach, nobody but the  Voltarian High Command Muckety Mucks are supposed to be in on even the existence of the GCOIJAFP.

Let's not mention it again? Thanks.

Say, can we hold the UNHCR personally responsible for all the refugee screw ups and problems during her/his/it's term?

How do we get rid of her/him/it if it is the worst UNHCR ever? War crimes trials?

What's the process?

Like I said, I try to ignore the UN...

I usually do, but when somebody points out that the UN has a High Commissioner responsible for refugees, and I see what a bad job is being done with refugees, it reminds me the UN exists.

If you're interested it could be a discussion on why it isn't working very well.

I'll start by saying that it's working very well but could work better.

I'm pleasantly surprised Dong. For you, that is both decisive and insightful commentary.

Thank you, it's what I believe. I'm also pleasantly surprise at your comment.
