Up to 300,000 Syrian refugees living in Turkey could be given citizenship under a plan to keep wealthy and educated Syrians in the country, a Turkish newspaper reported on Saturday.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on July 2 that Syrian refugees in the country would be offered nationality "if they want it," the first time such an idea had been proposed at the highest level. Nationality would be given step-by-step, with initial plans for 30,000 to 40,000 Syrians gaining citizenship, the Haberturk daily said.

In total, Turkey is targeting giving Turkish citizenship to up to up to 300,000 Syrians, it added.

Turkey is hoping such a move would allow skilled Syrian refugees to become citizens, the paper said. Educated refugees from other countries could choose to become nationals as well. Family members of those chosen to become Turkish citizens could also get the right to become nationals, it added.

1. more of this needs to happen;

 

the Syrian refugees are a much better cultural fit for countries in that part of the world. Other countries in the ME should take the lead.

8. Yeah that is clearly my point

Not the fact that taking in millions of people with a 10th century mindset into modern liberal democracies ends poorly.

Turkey is a good place for them, they can oppress women and homosexuals in peace.

4. There is already plenty of skilled labor here.

No need to add a whole bunch of competition.
