Life on Nauru is better than life in the United States, at least according to 40 of the 300 refugees who left the island nation for resettlement in the US.

According to The Australian, when the refugees discovered life in the United States was not as easy as they hoped, they contacted Nauru’s Department of Justice and Border Protection asking to return to the island.

“Refugee life on Nauru can include holidays in Fiji, business ownership, free housing and healthcare and jobs in government departments and at the local hospital, The Australian was told.”

It sounds like all they’re fleeing from is hard work and personal responsibility.
