    How does your solution help those you're demanding assistance from?Perhaps it's this type of selfish thinking that is the root problem.

    I can understand why this is a big issue. 18 years is a long time, and moving back is not easy. It should have been done earlier. Usually I would say all refugees has to return to their homes after it has been rebuilt (host country might contribute). Refugees that stay forever beat the the whole concept. It makes anti immigration activists to reject a new refugees alltogether, like we see in the case of Syrians. And also wouldn't returning refugees free up space for refugees from newer natural disaster...

    Why would someone still need temporary protected status for an earthquake that happened 18 years ago?
