Transcript of ASYLUM SEEKERS

What does it mean to be a
ASYLUM SEEKER? A refugee is someone whom is forced to flee their country because they are in danger. To be a refugee you MUST be assessed by UN refugee Agency. An asylum seeker is someone who is forced to flee their country because of danger, but they haven’t been assessed by the UN refugee Agency. WHERE THEY COME FROM

He came over to Australia in a little boat with mass's of people. Him and his family were so close to never coming to Australia and dying, by pirates and other dangerous events. But once Anh made it over to Australia there were other bad events he had to face. Even though times were tough for Anh he still thought of himself as the happiest little refugee. Refugees and Asylum seekers seek a new country because either there countries are war torn or they are being persecuted for their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, conflict or their country has had natural disasters recently. Reflection I really enjoyed this topic as i found it really interesting. I found the facts in this topic really shocking and mind-blowing as you realize how much the media bends the truth. I also find it really tragic how some people live around the world, and how hard it is for them to seek help or be safe. The biggest fact that I didn't know before studying this topic was not knowing was that refugees aren't illegal, and that its not illegal to seek asylum anywhere around the world. What I have come to understand about refugees now is that they aren't bad people and are only wanting to seek asylum and be safe. Ways we can welcome refugees Friendships/family
