Syrian migrants cross under a fence as they enter Hungary at the border with Serbia, near Roszke, August 27, 2015. Hungary made plans on Wednesday to reinforce its southern border with helicopters, mounted police and dogs, and was also considering using the army as record numbers of migrants, many of them Syrian refugees, passed through coils of razor-wire into Europe.

Families from Turkey are going into other countries because of the crisis and economic problems going on. In Syria families; innocent people young and old are running away to wealthier countries. What those countries are doing is pushing them away and not letting them in. Hungary is building walls in those places where they know people could pass into their country and only opening the fence at certain times. When people cross the sea too Greece most of them don’t survive. Hundreds of people are trying too escape drowning. On a beach in Turkey earlier this month, people pulled the bodies of migrants out of the water, including one of a little child. Clothes from migrants washed up on the sand.

The cost of war triggered by ISIS is very sad; people are leaving their own country because the government cant do anything about what’s going on. Other countries that can help should help with food or shelter; anything that they can provide. Those countries don’t think of what can happen to them in the future because the same thing that is happening in Syria can happen to Germany, or Turkey and they would migrate to other countries seeking for help. Human Rights should be guaranteed in any country.

In Syria their were 7.6 million people displaced out of their own country. 1,172,753 Syrians were displaced to Lebanon, 1 of 5 in Lebanon is a Syrian refugee.  249,726 are in Iraq. So many people are looking for a place to go and they are desperate.  It is time for the western countries of Europe and America to respond more effectively and with international cooperation.  Still too little is provided but every effort to help makes a difference.
