New York, NY - The Global Repatriation Council is setting a date for the final vote on the controversial Patch Act. The act will restore and enforce former national borders, relocating the last refugees of "The Blip" back to their countries of origin.
Thousands of refugees worldwide remain unemployed or homeless. Temporary communities still exist throughout Asia, Europe, and North America, relying on fluctuating donations and costly welfare programs. Job displacement remains common. Some returned to find homes auctioned by banks to new owners or damaged beyond repair, with insurance companies citing force majeure to deny payouts.
The GRC provides permanent funding for housing and job training, following their motto to Reset, Restore, Rebuild. A motto that many refugees say will force them back into authoritarian regimes or warzones. It will also force some current tenants out after years of unresolved legal issues with the former owners.
Trying to counter these accusations, the GRC declared this is a worldwide effort to achieve a conclusive resolution for all those affected. Representatives from the United States, United Kingdom, India, Japan, China, Philippines, France, Italy, South Korea, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Russia, Canada, Brazil, Indonesia, Australia, Argentina, and Jamaica will be in attendance. The vote is expected to take place at the GRC's building at One Liberty Plaza in Lower Manhattan.
