Human Rights First: Bring them over from Libya ASAP
Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 12, 2011
It was just a matter of time for the drums to begin beating—bring the North African refugees to America by expediting the resettlement process!
Human Rights First in a press release yesterday stressed the “urgent need” to begin resettling refugees from Libya to the United States.
Don’t be taken in by this, this is what the refugee industry loves—an emergency that allows them to bring more of the third world to America and skip the normal resettlement process. I warned here a few weeks ago to be on the look-out for the PR lobbying campaign to begin. Next thing you know they will be demanding an airlift as the Center for American Progress did here with Iraqis in 2009. Thank goodness, even Obama didn’t fall for that outrageous demand.
From Human Rights First (emphasis mine):
As the international community responds to migrants and refugees fleeing Libya, the particular resettlement needs of refugees in Libya must also be prioritized through emergency resettlement to third countries including the United States.
To make resettlement an effective solution for this population, the United States should immediately remove unnecessary processing delays in the resettlement program that continue to hinder the resettlement of refugees from different parts of the world to the United States.
So what do they have in mind for removing processing delays?
Improve the timeliness of resettlement processing, including through reducing unnecessary delays in the security clearance process.
Develop and implement an emergency resettlement procedure for refugees facing imminent danger. [airlift?]
Speed up the security process and haul them in here fast! I’ll bet at this very moment refugee industry insiders are plotting with our Ambassador to Malta to get as many as they can to Malta and make that the springboard to the US.
