    Let’s be honest, this is a mass migration as there has been in many many eras before by various people. The world is constantly changing. Hopefully some of the new arrivals will hold their patriotism and loyalty to their home lands and after resting in safe shelter, getting care, learning skills, and studying they will be feel drawn to return home and take their countries back.
