Syria soon to be a ghost Country?

European Union leaders will be discussing a proposal to relocate 160 thousand refugees that have flooded countries from Greece to Germany totaling around 5 million displaced peoples over the past 3 years. At this point Syria is emptying faster than the south during the Harlem Renaissance.

It only makes me beg the question of whether or not the bubble dwellers; what I like to call the American population who blind themselves to world issues and instead luxuriate in social media and pop culture, whether or not they are even aware to the severity of this situation and how it may potentially affect us here in the U.S. It’s one thing to discuss border control with Mexico, it’s another to discuss accepting up to 50,000 more refugees, which is what congress is now trying to come to terms with.

What will that mean for the economy, job market, and inner city living situations here on home turf? All Things to consider.
