    If they can't do something simple as spell they wouldn't be let in as migrants I never heard of uneducated migrant being accepted before:russ:
    Everybody filed for refugee including those who came before or the us would've kicked them for overstaying more than likely they claimed they were afraid of siyaad barre either way they made up insignificant minority:childplease:

    There are a large percentage of people here from Utanga refugee camp and no one will admit. We are not known to be subscribers to the honesty department.

    People who voted immigrants are liars. It should not be more than 5-10%.

    Aren’t you only a refugee until you reach a safe country? One would presumably be an immigrant after that.

    But I guess the question is really asking whether your parents came to the West before or after the civil war.

    Somalispot polls are a convenience sample. By definition, they’re not representative of a group. There could be a larger sample of immigrants in the population of Somalispot users than there are in the general population. I would think most ppl with FOB/camp experiences wouldn’t self-select to be forumer types.

    At the same time, as already mentioned, there could also be a sampling bias where ppl don’t want to identity as refugees, and are lying on the poll.

    My parents left Somalia in 1988 after Siad Barre started his crimes in the north. My dad had to leave Somalia multiple times because he would often sing songs against the government hence was a target for imprisonment but the bombings were the last straw for my family leaving Mogadishu in 1988.

    They eventually settled in the UK in the late 90s.

    According to your census I’m not represented as Somali so the data set is misleading in that sense

    Coming as refugees does not equal being uneducated. Some educated people arrived to the West as plain refugees. But obviously #NotAll.
