Lightbulb 20 Questions with a Lib NPC

I would particularly like to discuss immigration.

I'll start -

Question 1:

Quote:
What is the difference between a refugee and an asylum seeker?

A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee their country due to persecution, war, or violence. They have crossed an international border to find safety in another country. An asylum seeker is someone who has left their country and is seeking international protection, but whose claim for refugee status has not yet been determined. In other words, an asylum seeker is someone who is seeking refugee status, while a refugee is someone who has been granted it.

Question 2:

Quote:
What is a migrant encounter?

A "migrant encounter" typically refers to a situation where migrants, who are people in the process of moving from one place to another, come into contact with authorities or other individuals. This can include encounters with border patrol agents, immigration officials, or local law enforcement, as well as interactions with humanitarian aid workers or other people providing assistance to migrants. Depending on the context, a migrant encounter may be peaceful or confrontational, and may result in the migrants being granted entry, detained, or turned away.

Question 3:

Quote:
What is an economic migrant?

An economic migrant is a person who leaves their country of origin in search of better economic opportunities or to escape poverty. Economic migrants are often motivated by factors such as a lack of jobs, low wages, or poor living conditions in their home country, and they may be looking for higher-paying jobs, better working conditions, or a higher standard of living. Economic migrants may also be driven by the desire to provide for their families and improve their children's future prospects.

Economic migration can take many forms, including permanent relocation to another country, temporary work or seasonal work, and international commuting. The distinction between an economic migrant and a refugee is that the latter is someone who is forced to flee their country due to persecution, war or violence, while the former is someone who chooses to migrate to improve their economic situation.

It is important to note that the distinction between economic migration and forced migration can be complex and that many individuals may have a combination of motivations for leaving their home country. It is also worth mentioning that many countries have different laws and regulations regarding economic migration, and the process of legally immigrating for economic reasons can be difficult and time-consuming.

The way to really get lost in the sauce would be to explore it’s effect on wages and what if any industries may have become reliant on the illegal form to financially function

The hard part would be finding unbiased sources

Question 4:

Quote:
Define a, "woman".

A "woman" is an adult human female. The term is typically used to distinguish adult females from girls and boys, who are also female and male respectively. A woman is generally characterized by having two X chromosomes and the ability to bear children. Additionally, women have physical and hormonal characteristics such as the presence of breasts, wider hips and a higher percentage of body fat than men, although there can be variations in these characteristics and some individuals may not fit into the typical mold of female. The social, cultural, and historical context also shapes the definition of woman and the roles and expectations placed on them.

Not being able to find a job is not grounds for claiming asylum, and if you’ve crossed the territory of a third country, you have zero claim anyway

America should take tax paying English speakers who are very attractive as immigrants. If you’re ugly, poor, or have an accent, well, better luck in the next life Jack

Question 5:

Quote:
What is first safe country in asylum policy?

The concept of "safe third country" or "first safe country" refers to a policy that requires asylum seekers to apply for asylum in the first safe country they enter, rather than in the country they ultimately wish to settle in. The idea behind this policy is that it prevents asylum seekers from "forum shopping", or seeking asylum in multiple countries in order to find the one that offers the best chance of being granted asylum.

In the case of the United States, the current administration has attempted to implement a "safe third country" agreement with a number of countries, including Mexico and Guatemala, which would require asylum seekers who pass through those countries to apply for asylum there instead of in the US. The idea is that if a country is considered safe for asylum seekers, then the US would not be responsible for providing protection for those individuals.

However, the implementation of such agreements has faced legal challenges and some of them have been suspended by the courts. It is also important to note that the conditions in a country may change and a country that was safe in the past may not be safe anymore. The determination of whether a country is safe or not is a complex and delicate process that takes into account many factors, such as human rights, security, and stability.
