    Japan admitted only 10 refugees in 2003
    Agence France Press, February 27, 2004

    Japan accepted just 10 people into the country as refugees in 2003, the lowest number since it let in one in 1997, the justice ministry said Friday.

    Despite denying them refugee status, Japan accepted 16 more people on special humanitarian grounds during the year -- also the lowest figure since 1997, when it accepted three, the ministry said.

    In contrast, 336 people applied for refugee status in Japan over the year, the highest figure in two years.

    Various international organisations, including the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, have asked Japan to accept more refugees.

    Japan accepted just 16 refugees in 1999, while the United States took in 85,010 for resettlement, according to the UNHCR. New Zealand, which is smaller than Japan, accepted 1,140 refugees in 1999.

    Amnesty International Japan said in January that the country is violating international refugee and anti-torture conventions, citing the case of an Iranian applicant who was arrested days after being deported in October.

    On Wednesday, a Japanese court rejected the asylum request from a gay Iranian who faced the death penalty if his sexual orientation was discovered in his homeland.

        it has nothing to do with "size", but "economics". and Japan is doing pretty good economically to absorb a LOT more than 16 freakin' refugees!

        People who ***** about OUR immig. system only need to look at how the rest of the world operates and realize just how LIBERAL we really are.

          moondin: I have better idea: No Immigration period. Even if a child born in US No citizenship.
          All Arab Countries have the same laws. If you work in that country all your life. No matter, Go back to your country.
          How about this?

            exactly. 95% of the countries on this planet let in LESS than 500 immigrants a year. This is why i get so pissed off when people believe it's their RIGHT to come here.

            Reason people all come to the US, cuz we're one of like only 3-4 countries that actually allow immigration in such numbers. People should be *grateful* we even allow so many opportunties to immigrate here, and non-immigrate as well.

            Thank god you're not marrying someone from Saudi Arabia or Japan!

              I disagree. Good immigration is always welcome. People with high education/special skill will always benefit the country.
              Its those with no skill/low education who consume more than they have to offer to the country which should be outlawed.

              Then again, for some reason ppl failed/refuse to look at it from financial perspective

                People with "high education/skills" make up less than 5% of gc's given yearly in this country.

                sad isn't it. And you wonder why we're in a recession for 3 years going.

                  Go ahead and blame our problems on immigrants. You're just making yourself look foolish. Only idiots need scapegoats

                    Japan doesn't have immigrants, and they're doing just *quite fine* as u can see. And guess what - their toilets are being scrubbed and cleaned. I wonder how they do it!!!

                    And who works on Japan's farms??!

                        Funny. If Japan was in charge of *our* immigration system -- there wouldn't be an illegal around here for miles.

                        Not every country is sooooo open and gullible like us Americans. We're doormats for people around the world to walk on.

                          People have the same right to come here as the parents of all of you had 10,50 or 100 years ago.The only native Americans in this country are the Indians and we all know what happened with them.I doubt if any of you have ever read a history or any other book in his life.

                            There is no *right* to come here. Back then there were no immigration laws. But we do now.

                            That's akin to saying weed smoking was legal then, so it should be now. It isn't cuz we now have laws against it.

                            wrong argument. NO country on this planet GUARANTEES immigration to ANYONE. Well maybe antartica.

                              Individually U don't need "laws" to govern or to distinguish what is right and what is wrong. The fact that they came so many years ago and took the land from the Native Indians was still a wrong deed.

                              If stealing somehow became permissible...that does mean this is the "right" thing to do.
                              Beware of small expenses. A small leak could sink a big ship.
