UK Offers Migrants One Way Ticket Home

The fruits of the devastating recession which has impacted nations throughout the world most probably impacts migrants in devastating ways because their lack of citizenship prevents obtaining economic support from government agencies. The United Kingdom under the National Reconnection Service is offering these migrants a special one way airline ticket back to the nation of their origin. A high percent of these migrants are from eastern Europe and came to Great Britain to pick food on farms and do the jobs native born people thought beneath their abilities.

The migrant lacks access to unemployment benefits, to medical care, to assistance for a place to live and their children sometimes can not get into schools. The world has responded with care and concern to Haitian refugees, perhaps, the same spirit can be shown in east European refugees who are broke and alone in a strange land that wanted and then, did not want their labor.
