 Immigration: What view does my character have?

In relation to England’s Brexit:

Firm believer in the benefits of multicultural diversity in England- although he feels that migrants have taken some jobs that could be avaliable to English citizens- work ethic is perfectly valuable and migrants should not be denied work in England if they are hard working.

Worried about the strain on the NHS, but feels that migrants are not at fault.

Believes that England needs Europe for a healthy economy- there would be a loss in income which could be problematic for households that are already facing financial issues.

He feels very much that every human should have an equal chance in life, and immigration should be enabled, but equally strict.

Thinks that Brexit has a lot of promises that have been broken- eg. the cut on immigration.

In relation to Donald Trump’s Immigration Ban:

He understands Donald Trump’s wishes to ensure the safety of America, but is simply approaching the idea wrongly with racial injustice. Any nationality could be a terrorist threat to America (including Americans) and this should not be pin-pointed on racial groups. He hates racism and feels that Donald Trump is using this Ban to project his selective racism onto American citizens. He feels that Donald Trump is also choosing countries that haven’t posed specific threat to America in at least 4 decades, posing his ban to be quite pointless. Terrorism is quite unpredictable and when you start predicting, you could be further from getting closer to the truth.

Believes that America could be ignorant of the atrocities migrants face, and the desperation they have to flee their countries- it is not out of choice, but out of survival and if Americans were to experience the same violence and fear in their own country- would Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Sudan, Syria and Yemen provide the same protection?

Saudia Arabia and Egypt are not included in the ban, despite their involvement with large-scale terrorist attacks and he feels this just presents Donald Trump’s selective racism towards seemingly innocent countries.

What Trump has enforced is actually illegal, my character feels that just because he is President, he is no lesser or greater a human and should be guided by the law equally.

Antagonist: Albert’s antagonist is part of his own mind.
