Vietnamese boat people story

Postby Niner Alpha » Sun Mar 20, 2016 12:04 am

These boat people were rescued by a British ship. They were among the few that ended up in England while Margaret Thatcher was thinking that she didn't want to be a refugee outlet from the Vietnam war. Reminds us of what is happening now with Syrian refugees and Trump and a lot of other politicians at the state level as well.

Some of the Vietnamese found a way to America which at at the end of the Vietnam war was receptive to Vietnamese refugees into the US.
