Those Responsible for Present and Future Migrants

People are migrating - they are on the move. More people will migrate soon and even more later. Whether or not they are refugees from conflicts or economic woes, present migrants will soon be joined by those fleeing the impacts of Climate Change. Thus, the question: who are responsible for housing this inevitable movement of people?

First, it is proper and fitting to extend sincere gratitude to those leaders and nations who have sacrificed political comfort and gains to accommodate thousands of refugees in recent years: Chancellor Angela Merkel and most of the German people are deserving of praise; so are the French government and people who continue to host large numbers of refugees from war and economic hardships; deservingly, the government of Canada and its people; and with some reservation, the governments of Turkey, Iraq and Jordan.

With that said, it should be noted that those countries responsible for the next wave of immigrants must be the former colonial masters and empires, who have not contributed their fair share to the facilitation and housing of the people from whom they have taken so much over centuries: the Netherlands, Hungary, Poland, Austria, Belgium, the United Kingdom (UK), Spain, Portugal, etal. And the United States (US), which must fulfill the unwritten obligations, especially to the people of the Americas for their upholding and subjection to US foreign policy pursuits over the years,

The grandeur of the museums, palaces and buildings of these nations are testimony of the wealth taken from the nations of impending migrants. Therefore, these nations should oblige their moral responsibility to house present and future migrants.
