Reader feedback: Slovakia not poor

Re: Addressing immigration issues, Reader feedback, Vol 8, No 45, Nov 25 - Dec 1

How can you say Slovakia is a poor country? Compared to what? The States, where some people can't afford to see a doctor or get their teeth fixed? Moreover, what asylum seekers are you talking about? It is a well-known fact that most of the asylum seekers apply for refugee status after they have been caught by the border police. Slovakia was not the country they were aiming for. Being caught up in Slovakia is not what they walked thousands of miles for.
