Because if no one accepts them, they'll just die, which is inhumane, pure and simple. It's a humanitarian crisis. I dunno about you, but I feel no one should have to die just because of that. It probably goes against like everything in the UDHR, and honestly, what does that even say about us as humans except that apparently we're a bunch of selfish assholes who can't be bothered to respond to a literal emergency? Of course, lots and lots of people already have
had to die that way, but to me, that is all the more reason why we shouldn't allow this to continue.
(Also, what Saim said).
Anyway, I have nothing against them staying here. It's just that they expect to get all the welfare benefits, free shelter, food, job... And that will be paid from the taxpayers' money.
Does it really bother you that if you pay taxes, that money you pay will go to people whose lives literally depend on it? I wouldn't be bothered by that. If I'm paying money to save somebody's life, why should I complain?
Why don't the politicians who ordered that take them and care for them themselves instead? They have enough private money - if they want to show compassion and how great they are, let them be first to take care of them, from their private wealth. Let them be an example to the rest of the society! But nah, it's easier to spend someone else's money, and be the "good guy" without any price or consequences - the society will pay and feel the results of their actions instead.
But what exactly do you mean by "take them and care for them themselves"? Stuff millions of people into their own private residences? I'm just asking because they still have to live somewhere, and that solution would not do anyone any good.
Tl;dr: private charities and individuals should accept them.
We don't need even more people on our welfare, for the price of own citizens.
IMO, your (and our) citizens are paying a much greater price for the politicians they elected than for welfare.
