Name a non-Western country with a better record. They can go to the shining, ultra-modern cities of the Arabian Peninsula monarchies, and be made to do next to slave labour, where homosexuality is punishable by death and all permanent residents must be Sunni Moslem. Or South Africa, with the national motto, "Diversity is Strength" in 10 languages, but for whom their demographic melting never became more than a horrid, violent, internecine mess in the post-Apartheid days. Or China, where I'm sure a little "re-education" and they'll set to a life of brainwashed labour for the profit of the people in the hybrid Communist/Capitalist system in place now. Or Japan or South Korea, where you will never become a citizen, no matter how long you or your descendants are permanent residents, because being a citizen is based on being of ethnic Japanese or Korean heritage, respectively. Or Thailand, India, or an Anglo-Caribbean country, with cities with higher murder rates than any First World city (topping even Baltimore and Detroit, the highest First World murder capitals at the moment), and bad legacies, along with Vietnam, Taiwan, and Bangladesh, of exploiting their workers HORRIBLY in sweat shops. Or Turkey or Russia, where one can just imagine what jolly old Recyp and Vladimir would have in mind for a wave of migrants - it would make one shudder. And, unless you're Orthodox Jewish, you're not getting citizenship in Israel - that's the Right of the Return. So, where is the better place to go as a migrant? Where is the Shangri-La?
