US refugee program attracting Somalis to Malta
Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 6, 2012
I’ve been reporting this same story for years and making this very point, but now Maltese media is saying the same thing. In hopes of getting a ticket to the US, more Somalis are coming ashore in Malta.
Here is just the latest story about the SINGLE ADULT MEN on the way to your town at this very moment.
From the Malta Star:
Armed Forces of Malta (AFM) personnel involved in search and rescue operations involving irregular migrants say that while most of the migrants who arrive in Malta usually want to reach Italy, they have noticed a new trend that Somalis are heading for Malta hoping that from here they would be sent to the United States through the US Refugee Settlement Program (USRRP).
On Wednesday 12 persons from Somalia and Eritrea all of whom are single adult men granted subsidiary protection in Malta left to start a new life in the United States, under the USRRP.
245 migrants have been resettled from Malta to the United States of America since the beginning of 2012. More beneficiaries of international protection are expected to leave to the United States in the coming weeks.
Bush ambassador to Malta, Molly Bordonaro, started the trend in 2008 (or at least that is when we learned of it) and it continues today. These men are illegal aliens and economic migrants magically transformed into “refugees.”
