Has any country not had controversy about accepting refugees?
Criteria that I'm looking for:
- The immigrants are refugees, which I'll define broadly: fleeing persecution, conflict or poor economic circumstances. Any circumstance where the host country is acting largely out of altruism.
- The refugees aren't accepted because of other criteria, such as being skilled workers, guest workers, family reunion, or potentially increasing the population of a specific group (Ten Pound Poms and possibly the Law of Return)
- The intake is reasonably large-scale, and sustained, unlike Japan's.
- The refugees are from around the world, not just a nearby neighbour. So while Jordan has accepted refugees from nearby countries, as far as I'm aware they haven't accepted refugees from other parts of the world such as Vietnam.
- Refugees aren't a point of debate between major parties (such as Australia's election in 2001), or a major part of the platform of minor parties
- Major media outlets don't complain about refugees in the editorial sections nor highlight problems "caused" by refugees in the news section.
