Calls for the Rohingya to be expelled from Burma on the grounds that they are not citizens have been made by the very same people who were allowed to remain in their countries of asylum [US, UK, Canada] for years before citizenship was finally awarded – they assert however that this gesture should not be extended to the Rohingya.

If you click on the above photo, you will see what a 19-year-old refugee said:
"I was born in Myanmar, but the Burmese government says I don't belong there. I grew up in Bangladesh, but the Bangladeshi government says I cannot stay there. As a Rohingya, I feel I am caught between a crocodile and a snake."
