Refugee or Migrant?


Just to make it clear a migrant and a refugee are two different persons. The major disparity between a migrant and a refugee is that a migrant decides to shift to another place, whereas, a refugee is a person who has been forced to leave their country.


We say 'refugees' when we mean people fleeing war or persecution across an international border and we say 'migrants' when we mean people moving for reasons not included in the legal definition of a refugee. We hope that others will give thought to doing the same. Choices about words do matter. People don't leave their homes willingly. Sadly they are often very desperate, willing to risk their lives crossing the channel, dealing with people wishing to exploit them for their own ends. Do they really deserve being sent to Rwanda?
