    Good for him. He's immigrated properly like most people actually don't mind.

    Though my only confusion is how a Refugee managed to have the Money to start an entire business that quickly? Is he actually a Refugee? or just someone that immigrated from Syria and they are trying to put a refugee success story spin on it?

    Yes I’m sure they scrupulously examined every single business in the United States before arriving at their decision.

    We'res all the, "they are rapists taking our jobs and our welfare!" now?
    Come on, don't you know only the illegal ones are rapists and drug dealers? the legal ones are a benefit to the entire community

    This Syrian is a true American, he came here legally and didn't force his culture on anyone or ask for handouts.

    Refugee doesn't mean poor and not an economic immigrant.

    Europe got all the economic immigrants while the US and Canada got to interview and pick the good ones to come over. Win for the US.

    Most of the refugees that actually make it out of the places they are escaping are middle income, not poor. Poor people don't have anything of value for traffickers and if they try to escape, they are far more likely to end up as slaves and you'll never hear about them. Anyone who left early and managed to do so through proper paths (because they still had access to their papers, embassies were active and government agencies cooperative for checks) would likely be able to do the entire process cheaper and thus bring more assets with them. There might also be loans offered from exisiting immigrants that support immigrant communities.

    I mean moreso as in, if we are lead to believe Syria is this wartorn shithole country which people need to flee. How does an average guy have enough money to open a restaurant right off the bat in a new Country. Refugees generally are the poor ones that need help escaping, otherwise they are just migrants.

    All of the above. Migrating gets you in a long line, being a refugee gets you in front of it, past business owner/credentials get you accepted by the US.

    Uh refugees are generally people from war torn areas with little with them but the clothes on their back and money in their pockets. The man came from Syria. Heard that place is doing well right now...

    I pull up threads from a year ago where people we're calling to turn all Syrian refugees around but this guy is suddenly "one of the good ones"???

    Started question the opinions of some people.

    People who legally immigrate to America from Europe, Asia or Africa are usually upper middle class.

    Look at all the alt-righters being triggered by this thread. LUL

    "Now it's day and night the irons clang, and like poor galley slaves. We toil and toil, and when we die, must fill dishonored graves
    But some dark night, when everything is silent in the town. I'll shoot those tyrants one and all, I'll gun the flogger down
    I'll give the land a little shock, remember what I say, And they'll yet regret they've sent Jim Jones in chains to Botany Bay."

    And we can see what a "nice" place is and becoming "nicer" with more immigrants.

    It's pretty easy to get money in the US. Start a small business, even if it's a falafel cart, take your books to the banker and show him you know how to make money and you get your loan.

    There might even be government programs for refugees who want to start a business.

    It says he's a refugee in the article.
