Answers wanted

The total number is made up between the refugees that have been processed overseas by the UNHCR, claimants entering the country legitimately with their travel documents and those seeking the assistance of the people smugglers.

It seems that those with money are short-circuiting the system.

There are millions of UNHCR-vetted refugees. They have languished in the camps for years, with no prospects of resettlement, yet they don’t riot or suffer mental stress.

How are they selected for resettlement? Does the host country have any say as to who comes and from where?

If an unfair system exists, then it is time for the refugee host countries to make a stand and have the UNHCR sort out the mess.
