    Lots of these people are running away from their homelands because of lack of economic opportunities. In some instance it's economic oppression. The more I look at it – it can be tied to American Foreign Policy and austerity measures imposed on these countries by The IMF and The World Bank. When you understand that United Nations concept, lots of these behavior were preplanned and could have been predicted. It's really the movement of labor. I for example is from Jamaica, W. I and THE MIGRATION from this country was as a result of people fleeing economic oppression due to Governace issues by a tyrannical dictator call The Queen of England who occupies The Executive Office and corrupt a few people within. The few who were corrupted are either knowingly or unknowingly opressing their own people for the Queen of England who in essence has stolen that country.
