US to take Nepalese refugees

“After dragging on for close to 18 years – often in almost farcical fashion – at an estimated cost of some US$350 million, resolution of the Bhutan refugee crisis is at hand. This month, the first batch of 25,000 refugees left camps in seven United Nations-supervised camps in eastern Nepal, and the vast majority of the 86,000 remaining have signed up for resettlement in the West; most of them are heading for the United States. ”

The US has generally welcomed refugees and should continue to do so.  People seeking a better life should always be welcomed here.  Also, this is an indication of how the US is seen in other countries.
