Japan Not Taking in Refugees; Says It Must Look After Its Citizens First

Fox News, September 30, 2015

Japan’s prime minister said Tuesday that his nation needs to attend to its own demographic challenges posed by falling birth rates and an aging population before opening its doors to refugees.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced at the U.N. General Assembly that Japan is ramping up assistance in response to the exodus of refugees to Europe from the Middle East and Africa.

He said Japan will provide $1.5 billion in emergency aid for refugees and for stabilization of communities facing upheaval. But speaking to reporters later Tuesday he poured cold water on the idea of Japan opening its doors to those fleeing.

He said Japan first needed to attend to domestic challenges which he proposes to tackle under a revamped economic policy that aims to boost GDP to a post-war record level, while bolstering the social security system to support families.

“As an issue of demography, I would say that before accepting immigrants or refugees we need to have more activities by women, by elderly people and we must raise (the) birth rate. There are many things that we should do before accepting immigrants,” Abe told a news conference, according to the official translation of his comments.

According to Ministry of Justice data, [Japan] accepted just 11 asylum seekers out of a record 5,000 applications last year, although Japanese officials say most of the asylum applicants were from other Asian countries and were already living in Japan.

It is a sound decision.


It is an anti-Western decision.  To be a true Western nation, the nation is required to inundate themselves with millions of third-world people.

Japan is already a crowded, overpopulated group of islands. With a tradition of ethnic isolation. This is not anti-Western. Japan is the most Western nation-state in Asia (since the Americans reformed it).
What's on your mind...
