If Ukranians came by boat would Morrison “turn them back”? He’s already guaranteed they can “jump the queue” over and above Afghanis that fought for and with us. He’s already calling Ukrainians “refugees” and not “illegals” or “Asylum Seekers”.
Some European and American commentators on Russia’s war against Ukraine have covered themselves in shame by implying that because Ukrainians are “European” or “civilized” it is harder to see them hit by artillery and made refugees than it had been with regard to Iraqis or Syrians. While in 2015 Syrians and Afghans who came to Europe were called “migrants” and were seen as a dire problem, Ukrainians fleeing their country for European states have been welcomed and called refugees. But the Syrians were also fleeing a war, and from fall of 2016 were even fleeing the same Russian bombers that the Ukrainians are.
