Japan accepts 3 refugees out of 8,561 asylum applications

And I’m half and half on this. Realistically speaking, non-Japanese speaking refugees might find it hard to perform basic functions here and survive. In fact, even foreigners who have been here for a decade and can speak the language still have those issues. On the other hand, I understand the cautiousness of the government but I think it is ridiculous that only 3 out of the total number of applicants fit the criteria to be recognized as refugees. Of course these people can go to other more progressive countries which are far better than the isolated island nation of Japan which wants to stay that way. I just hope they find a place where they will be accepted as humans.

@petatonicsca They come with boats from the northern coasts of Africa and the EU obliges Italy to receive all the refugees who land there. It's a nightmare right now in Italy, they are everywhere, they do not respect women, they steal, they are violent.

It is sad but unfortunately countries must take precautions to protect their own citizens. Too many people with evil intentions are sneaking in with the refugees around the world. It makes me sad for the people who actually are in dire need of help, but I don't know what we can do to remedy this situation.
