Sentiment Influence: Country Half and Asylum Seekers

sentiment influence: The Yemeni refugees have risked every danger to come to our country, just so that they could survive, Choi said Thursday, according to CTV. It's no different from the people of our own country half a century ago, when they wandered around foreign countries as refugees through war and division. Justice Party spokesman Choi Seok said South Korea was neglecting its responsibility as a member of the United Nations and letting public sentiment influence critical decisions on human rights. We should no longer ignore the voices of people who seek to live. The ministry rejected stay permits for 34 asylum seekers, who still could appeal, and postponed applications from 85 others for further interviews.
