UK Considers Using WW2 Base to House Refugees

Over the last several decades and even prior, mass migration to Europe and the United States from other countries outside of the continents of North America and Europe has been commonplace. Western nations as a whole have struggled to deal with the scores of migrants arriving from places like Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean. This trend is most prevalent in major cities. In places like Camden, Baltimore, New York City or Newark, the demographics are majority-minority; that is, non-white inhabitants comprise the overwhelming extent of citizens within those urban areas. In the United Kingdom, the latest census showed statistics that the countries two largest cities- London and Birmingham, have become “majority minority”. While the effects of this decades-long trend in migration have often been downplayed and many political leftists across the west have deemed the increase in ethnic diversity as a positive force, in truth the increasingly “multicultural” nature of western society has created significant polarization and has severely damaged and eroded traditional European and American cultures in many regards.

Politicians in both Europe and America have done little to address the growing challenges migration poses to the well-being and stability of their nations. In the aftermath of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021 in which 13 servicemembers died, many Afghanis that had been partial to the American and western powers have been displaced. These individuals have been unable to remain in their native nation as the Taliban immediately seized power, and to do so would mean certain death or punishment for their support of the western nations.

In Britain, some of these Afghani refugees require housing. Recently, the ministry of defence stated that Swynnerton Camp, a military training base constructed during the second world war would be utilized to accommodate these individuals. Comprising 560 acres, Afghanis who escaped the Taliban will be allowed to inhabit the location before being approved to reside in other locations across the U.K.
