Sorry Rouge, you said according to INTERNATIONAL LAW. Do you recall that? Or are you having another amnesia attack?<quoted text>
But that is not what the United Nation says. And the UN says nothing about "economic" asylum. Only political asylum.
Just like the Geneva Accords only covers LAWFUL combatants and not illegal ones like the Taliban and al Qaeda who can be tortured and summarily executed!
According to the Refugee Convention "there are three situations in which a state may decline to protect a person because he or she can obtain protection elsewhere: where a person has more than one nationality, he will not satisfy the definition of refugee if “he has not availed himself of the protection of one of the countries of which he is a national”(Article 1A(2)); where a person has de facto nationality in another country the Convention “shall not apply”(Article 1E); and where a refugee acquires a new nationality and enjoys the protection of the country of new nationality the Convention “shall cease to apply”(Article 1C)."

<quoted text>Rouge needs to learn definition of first country of asylum. It's not necessarily the first foreign country a refugee sets foot on.
