Invasion of Europe round-up: UN bullies the West (so what else is new!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 23, 2014

Editor:  LOL! This is one way to deal with my growing backlog!

“No expense spared” as Saudi Arabia builds the world’s best security fence. The UN and its “humanitarian” lapdogs are silent. http://www.homelandsecurityresearch.com/2008/06/saudi-arabia-border-fence-market-largest-in-the-world/

~UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Socialist Antonio Gutteres opines that European financial support for Syrian refugees is no longer enough and that more countries (besides Germany and Sweden) need to open their arms to mostly Muslim ‘refugees’ and invite them in.

~They are breaking into Spain through Morocco, but Spain is not a welcoming place say Syrian refugees who want to move on to Germany, Sweden or France.

~Bulgarian “anti-refugee” border fence ticks-off the international humanitarian industrial complex.  But they say nothing that I know of about the best border fences in the world protecting Saudi Arabia!   We have reported on several occasions that S.A. rounds up, and deports, all those would-be asylum seekers who do manage to get into the “Kingdom.”

~Longer wait for Syrians trying to get into Sweden, is the slowdown on purpose?

~Italian police arrest Somali (Italian national) human trafficker. Italy has rescued 66,000 illegal aliens entering Italy by sea in the last six months!  20 Somalis among 600 illegal aliens rescued by Italian Navy this week.

~Turkey attempts to clear Istanbul of Syrian beggars living on the streets.  Turkey, a Muslim country, has been “welcoming” but the citizens there are losing patience now.

~Muslim immigrants turn Paris into war zone.

Notice a common thread.  Truth-be-told, Europe isn’t so welcoming to ‘asylum seekers’ because the illegal aliens trying to break in are almost all Muslims.  Not even Saudi Arabia wants them.

If Saudi Arabia can build a 1,600-mile-long fence, why can’t we?   Just asking!

Legal Representation for Central American Minors: WHAT ABOUT THE MAYANS?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 20, 2014

Editors note:  From time to time we post good comments from our readers.  This is another excellent piece by reader ‘pungentpeppers’ with an entirely new and problematic angle on the ‘unaccompanied minors’ crisis that few are aware of!  See our category “comments worth noting” for more reader commentary.  Our extensive coverage of the ‘unaccompanied minors’ border surge is here.

 

Certain members of Congress want a law requiring taxpayer-funded legal representation for underage Central American migrants.  I’ll ignore for now that there are not enough immigration attorneys, or room in our courts, to handle tens of thousands of long, drawn-out, and often dubious, cases.  Instead, let’s focus on the big interpretation wall we’re going to hit because, as usual, nobody remembers the Mayans!

Attempting to learn English, 15-year-old Hugo speaks Q’anjob’al an indigenous Mayan language. http://wvpublic.org/post/language-barriers-pose-challenges-mayan-migrant-children

Not everybody in Central America speaks Spanish.  This fact is slowly dawning on our politicians.  San Francisco’s Mayor Ed Lee in an interview with the San Francisco Bay Guardian said:  “I’m trying to wrap my arms around the fact that many of these kids don’t speak Spanish.  They speak Mayan and different languages.”

Mayan is not one language but a native language family that includes many mutually unintelligible tongues.  About 40 percent of Guatemalans are Mayan, and they speak around two dozen native languages, including M’am, Q’anjob’al, K’itche and Ixil.

Although young people who arrive here could learn basic English, if such a law were enacted, they would still need help to communicate with their lawyers and the courts.  They would need legal interpreters.  Here’s where it gets messy.  For the Guatemalan Mayan language called “Ixil”, there is ONE legal interpreter in the whole country!  Her name is Sheba Velasco and she’s been very busy of late.  Hers is a mentally-stressful job.  People expect her to help them stay in the U.S., but there’s nothing she can do legally for them except interpret the language.  There’s so much work, she told NPR, I can’t do all of it. It’s hard.”

Sheba Velasco has an important message about the unaccompanied minors currently flooding the country.  She doesn’t agree with parents sending their children on the dangerous journeys, she told CBC Canada. For starters, their safety is at risk, but second, she’d prefer they stay in Guatemala where they can practice their cultural traditions and language. She knows many families are poor and struggle but Velasco said coming to America is not necessarily how to get a better life.

“What I would like to share with them is, you can make it where you are,” she said.

She feels badly that families fall for the lies they are told by smugglers. The coyotes, as they’re called, show photos of the U.S. around her village, and tell young people how easy it is to make money there. Parents essentially sign their houses over to the banks to get money to pay the smugglers. Their children get caught at the border, are sent home and everything is lost, Velasco explained. In the worst-case scenario, their children don’t even make it back.

“I would not send my children,” she said. “Their life is more important to me.”

The situation of these rural Mayan young people belies the current media gospel that everyone from Central America is fleeing from gangs.  They don’t live in cities and they don’t speak Spanish – they can’t even communicate with gangs!  As economic migrants, under our laws, there’s no chance they will obtain legal asylum in our country.  We should not foolhardily rush into shackling ourselves into providing legal representation, when there are not enough interpreters and their chances of winning such cases are practically nil.

Australia: “most multicultural society on earth” wants more immigrants! Who knew!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 18, 2014

That’s what a recent article in The Australian reports as it tells us that 20% of respondents want more migrants to come to Australia in an article titled, Two-Thirds Majority Back Current or Higher Immigration Intake.

 

Here are the charming 20% who want higher levels of immigration to Australia as the Abbott government turns back asylum seekers. https://news.vice.com/article/the-australian-navy-is-towing-asylum-seekers-back-out-to-sea

 

I had to read this article a couple of times to figure out what the point of it all might be and am still not sure, except to use a “news” story to sway public opinion.

Remember, readers, as we know so well, Tony Abbott, Australia’s present Prime Minister was elected only last year because of his platform (which he apparently is working on daily to hear the squealing out of the UN) to slow the flow of boat people (faux asylim seekers) breaking into Australia.  The citizens there were completely fed up!

We frequently cite Australia, Israel and Bulgaria as three countries seriously attempting to close their borders.

Check out the article yourself (here is a bit of it) posted at American Renaissance (with some good commentary).   One thing seems clear, the pollsters polled heavily in immigrant neighborhoods and among young, rich, city dwellers.

Higher migration levels are favoured by a fifth of Australians, in an exclusive Newspoll survey revealing robust support for the most multicultural society on earth.

Nearly half the people ­surveyed support Australia’s ­existing immigration intake, which settled 190,000 immigrants last year in the world’s largest per capita intake. Two-thirds were skilled migrants.

Twenty-two per cent favour an even higher intake, with support strongest among the young, those on high incomes and capital city-dwellers.

European, African and Asian migration enjoys the strongest public support, with 26 per cent of Australians desiring more ­migrants from Europe. Another 18 per cent want to see more Asian migrants, and 20 per cent support more immigration from Africa.

In contrast, just 14 per cent of Australians want to see more Muslim migrants, and 37 per cent favour a cut.

Read it all.

By the way, about the same number (20%) of respondents who want higher immigration levels also say that Australians are racists.

LOL! This article could just as well have been titled:  86% of Australians polled want less Muslim migrants admitted to Australia.  I guess that would mean that some of the immigrants polled and some of the young, rich, city dwellers are Islamophobic.   Gee, I wonder why?

For new readers, see our Australia category with over 100 previous posts.  We especially want American readers to know that the invasion by the third world is happening in every advanced society and you need to know how others are handling the demographic upheaval.  Western society is under siege.

WND: Religious charities profit from open borders

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 17, 2014

Every time I think I’m done with this topic for a few minutes, in comes a new article that you must see on the border invasion.

Right now there are so many other issues involving refugees and migrants in the US and around the world that we are missing with our non-stop coverage of the invasion of America that I’m fearful that our international readers will drop off (we have readers in over 150 countries!).

However, since this is one of our major concerns—the complete lack of understanding by the average citizen (and Glen Beck!) that charitable “religious” groups (pretending to be driven to help the migrants purely out of Christian or Jewish charity) could never exist without almost their entire budget being funded by US taxpayers—we are relieved to finally see a far-reaching national level report on the issue.

Leo Hohmann writing at WND (emphasis is mine):

Thousands of Central American children crossing the border illegally could soon turn into asylum seekers armed with immigration lawyers provided by church groups and paid for by federal tax dollars.

Catholic Charities is running a fundraising campaign to help finance the resettlement of the illegal aliens, WND reported. But the religious charities get the bulk of their funding not from private donors or church members putting checks into a basket. They get it from the federal government.

Alexandria, Va.-based Catholic Charities USA reported receiving $1.7 million in government grants in 2012, according to its IRS Form 990.

But one of the largest recipients of government funds to resettle immigrant children is the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The USCCB helps resettle not only unaccompanied alien children, or UACs, who enter the country illegally but also refugees fleeing persecution overseas who enter through legal channels.

The USCCB is one of nine primary agencies that receive hundreds of millions in U.S. tax dollars to perform their charity work. Under contract with the federal government, the nonprofit groups work to resettle child refugees and asylum seekers. Six of the nine contractors are religious groups, WND has learned, including the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the Church World Service and World Relief Corp., which includes a plethora of evangelical groups.

The Catholic Bishops alone received $65.9 million in federal grants to care for unaccompanied alien children and refugees, according to its 2012 annual report.

By contrast, the group raised $1.4 million from its own church members while federal loans and private-sector grants made up the remainder of the $71 million spent on the resettlements that year. That means 93 percent of the USCCB’s spending on charity work with UACs and refugees was covered by the American taxpayer.

Kevin Appleby, director of USCC’s Migration and Refugee Services Office, did not return calls from WND seeking comment.

Similar funding ratios have been found to be the norm with the Lutheran effort.

The Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service reported total income of $41.7 million in 2012, and government grants accounted for $40.4 million, or 96.8 percent of that amount, according to the nonprofit’s most recently reported Form 990, a disclosure that nonprofits must file with the Internal Revenue Service. The group raised only $1.3 million from private donors.

Miji Bell, press spokeswoman for Lutheran Immigration, also did not return calls Tuesday.

If they would tell the public the truth about their funding (and their fat salaries) I might have some respect for the whole bunch!

Dan Cadman at CIS:  They all have their hands in the pie!  And, they are working to get the illegals qualified as refugees.  WND continues….

Dan Cadman, with the Center for Immigration Studies, says it’s a conflict of interest for a group that benefits financially from immigration – both legal and illegal – to try to influence immigration policy.

“It bothers me that any private organization is using a government funding stream for that purpose, not only Catholic Charities but Lutheran World Service, the Episcopal Church, they’ve all got their hands in the pie,” Cadman said. “The thing is that everyone understands that, with a wink and a nod, this so-called emergency money (from Obama) is not going to result in any substantial number of individuals being deported. It’s just not. How ironic to see an emergency budget supplemental request and then when you look at the details you see it’s all going to be chewed up for things like brick and mortar buildings for resettlement and not used in any useful way to stop this tidal wave of human beings.”

Cadman said there is “no doubt in my mind” that the religious NGOs or “non-governmental organizations” are working with the United Nations to get the children qualified as refugees or asylum seekers.  (See our post on Bishops call alien children “refugees.”—ed)

By the way, the Bishops have their own immigration legal branch (most likely funded with federal grants too) known as CLINIC (a story for another day!).  One could call Obama’s plea for more money for the border crisis, The Immigration Lawyers Employment Act of 2014!

Read the whole World Net Daily article it is full of information on the groups comprising the Religious Left, I’ve only snipped a small amount of it!

VDARE: Call Your “State Refugee Coordinator” And Ask How Many Phony Refugees From The Southwest Border Are Coming To YOUR State!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 7, 2014

VDARE posted a call to action last night for you to contact your state refugee coordinator this week and ask:  are the unaccompanied alien minors (UACs) coming to your state?

And, by the way, the federal refugee contractors have action alerts out this week to their open borders activists to call Congress for more money for them (the children and the contractor)!

Protesters turn back Homeland Security buses in Murietta, CA last week. http://www.desertsun.com/story/news/2014/07/01/protesters-turn-back-busloads-immigrants-murrieta/11945751/

VDARE (emphasis mine):

Hard information on the phony refugee (“The children!”) surge at the Southwest border is hard to come by. This is true even if you’re a congressman—when Jim Bidenstine (R- OK) showed up at a holding camp in his home state he was stonewalled.

[....]

Between the ballot boxes (months away) and “the streets” (rare to nonexistent in American history) there’s citizen pressure on our despotic elites and their kept bureaucrats.

This is where VDARE.com readers come in. Are swarms of “The children!” coming to your state?

If they are, your state’s refugee coordinator will probably be among the first to know. So phone “your” coordinator – contact information is below—and, politely, ask basic questions such as Where? When? How Many? and What’s it going to cost state and local taxpayers?

[....]

The week starting Monday, July 7 is the time to phone, as VDARE.com has learned that at least some of the coordinators will be on a conference call with the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement during the week. It will help if the coordinators are made to understand that many of their fellow citizens are very concerned.

Read it all for more information and to follow the links!

Here and below is a complete list of Refugee resettlement employees in your state, if you can’t get the coordinator, try one of the others especially see the contact information for “regional reps.”   Even those “health coordinators” are going to be informed in light of the health issues the “children” will be bringing to the state.

Confused by the labels used to describe the illegal alien youths traveling without Mommy ?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 6, 2014

Be sure to see Neil Munro’s good post at the Daily Caller.  Many of the UIATMs have already been moved to a town near you! http://dailycaller.com/2014/07/05/border-meltdown-obama-delivering-290000-illegals-to-u-s-homes/

 

When we first began reporting on the illegal aliens who are under 18 years old, they were called ‘unaccompanied minors.’  That was a few years ago.  More recently they became ‘unaccompanied alien children’ (UACs) in government lingo.  Now we learn that the word alien has been dropped in favor of ‘unaccompanied children.’  Here at Breitbart.

We note that in the big lobbying push by the contractors*** for more of your money (for the children), here for example, that they are calling the youthful law breakers—UICs—which stands for the politically-correct ‘unaccompanied immigrant children.’

How about the more accurate acronym UIATMs–unaccompanied illegal alien teenaged males—a little awkward, but more accurate.

Most are teenaged boys.

All of our previous coverage of ‘unaccompanied minors’ is here.

Call your state’s refugee resettlement coordinator, here, and find out if you will be getting some “children” too!  And, while you are at it, call the contractors too—looks like all of them are getting federal cashola for the children.

***The contractors

UNHCR: Detention of asylum seekers ist verboten

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 6, 2014

Or, so they would like it to be forbidden!   Think about this!  The UN High Commissioner for Refugees is telling certain countries (to start with! others will be next!) to allow anyone claiming asylum to simply roam free and get “services.”

Who the hell do they think they are!

And, why countries that want to save themselves from invasion don’t just get out of the UN is beyond me.

One-worlder Volker Turk: Detaining people is not the answer. Let them roam free and give them “services.” http://www.cassese-initiative.org/global-education/summer-schools/faculty/9-global-education/73-turk-bio.html

LOL!  One of the countries the UN is telling to release asylum seekers is Mexico—well obviously Mexico is not detaining the tens of thousands of asylum-seeking “children” passing through Mexico to get to the US border.***

And, note that the UN is not (yet) telling the US to stop detaining illegal migrants.

From Malta Today:

The UN refugee agency yesterday issued a new global strategy aimed at helping countries move away from the detention of asylum seekers, refugees and stateless people worldwide.

Detention of asylum-seekers and refugees has become routine in a number of countries. It has serious lasting effects on individuals and families and the UNHCR said that it is concerned about the growing use of immigration detention, particularly of children.

The new strategy, ‘Beyond Detention’, calls firstly for an end to the detention of children, secondly to ensure that alternatives to detention are available in law and that they are implemented, and thirdly to ensure that conditions of detention – when unavoidable – fully meet international human rights standards.

“Seeking asylum is lawful and the exercise of a fundamental human right,” UNHCR’s Director of International Protection Volker Türk said “The detention of asylum-seekers as a routine response should be avoided. These are people who need protection. We are ready to work with governments on this, particularly to end the practice of detaining asylum-seeking children.”  [Who isn't an asylum seeker these days?---ed]

Türk said that the UNHCR recognised that irregular entry or stay presented many challenges to countries, but he said that detaining people was not the answer. “UNHCR recommends that people seeking asylum be properly received, allowed freedom of movement and access to services in the community. Seeking asylum is not illegal under international law and people have a right to be treated humanely and with dignity.”

UNHCR has identified a number of countries to work with initially to revisit detention practices and to strengthen alternatives to detention, including Malta, Hungary, Indonesia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Thailand, UK and Zambia. UNHCR plans to expand this group of countries over the coming five years.

The international Left is busy, busy, busy these days!

Follow our history of poor little Malta as it became a target for illegal aliens especially when the US State Department (egged-on by Malta’s Jesuits) started taking some of their illegal economic migrants to America calling them refugees.  One could write a book about the ‘invasion of Europe’ and how Malta became a beach head.  See our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series by clicking here.

*** See all of our posts on the invasion of the US by ‘unaccompanied minors.’  Forgotten in all of the hullabaloo is that legitimate asylum-seekers are, by international law, supposed to ask for asylum in the first safe country in which they arrive.  They are not supposed to be shopping for countries of their choice!  All of  those “vulnerable” kids  should have asked for asylum in Mexico!

OK Congressman denied access to Ft. Sill where 1,200 unaccompanied minors are being held

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2014

From 100percentfedtup  (hat tip: Cathy):

Congressman Bridenstine said, “There is no excuse for denying a Federal Representative from Oklahoma access to a federal facility in Oklahoma where unaccompanied children are being held. Any Member of Congress should have the legal authority to visit a federal youth detention facility without waiting three weeks.”

Congressman’s entry blocked. Who is paying the security guards?

The Health and Human Services (HHS) official who appears to be in charge of the facility, told Congressman Bridenstine he could schedule an appointment for July 21. HHS Deputy Director of the Office of Public Affairs, Ken Wolfe, would not take the Congressman’s phone call. The Congressman was told to send Mr. Wolfe an email as that was the preferred method of communication. Congressman Bridenstine’s email to Mr. Wolfe included this press release.

“After my visit today with the base commander, I approached the barracks where the children are housed. A new fence has been erected by HHS, completely surrounding the barracks and covered with material to totally obscure the view. Every gate is chained closed.

See all of our posts on the Obama-generated ‘unaccompanied minors’ crisis by clicking here. See also our previous post on Ft. Sill—local mayor welcomes the illegal teens.

Are they coming to your town next?

Find out by calling your state’s refugee coordinator.  Go here for the complete list.

Is Albany, NY Rep. Paul Tonko welcoming the “children?” Sure sounds like it!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2014

Update:  Tonko’s Republican challenger is making the issue a campaign issue, see the story here.

He sure isn’t criticizing the idea of bringing hundreds of illegal alien teenagers to Albany.  Does he think like Obama that America needs the “dreamer” kids?  Story hat tip: Laurence.

Rep. Tonko: Strengthen NY communities by bringing in hundreds of Central American teenaged boys?

Meanwhile we note that another federal refugee contractor*** has its hand in the federal till!

From NBC News10.com:

According to Paul Tonko, the Department of Health and Human Service is looking at many places across the country to house the children that cross the border without adults. There are a few places benig reviewed to house the children One of which, is the old Doane Stuart School building, located on Southern Boulevard in Albany.

[....]

“Initial reaction is that these children are escaping violence because of humanitarian efforts of this nation which I think has been our hallmark, to be humanitarian in response to, in this case, children,” said Tonko.

[....]

Tonko says other sites in New York State are also being investigated. However, he stresses funding will come from the federal level and not come from the state.  [Yeh right! No cost to the state!---ed]

Previously most federal contracts for caring for the “unaccompanied minors” went to the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and to the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.  Recently we saw that Church World Service is in on the action and now we see USCRIs (US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants) hand in the federal till too!

All of the contractors were lobbying for ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ (S.744) so as to obtain more immigrant ‘clients’ and thus federal grants, but since they aren’t getting that windfall, they will get this one!

NBC News10.com continued:

Stacie Blake, with the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants says the main concern is safe place to put the children with access to immigration hearings and an airport.

Something her office knows a lot about.

“Our interest is seeing and hearing these interests upheld because we are learning of these very disturbing reports off these most vulnerable children,” she said.

Upstate New York appears to be a prime target for relocating the “children” away from the border.

All of our coverage of “unaccompanied minors”, going back years, is archived here.

***The contractors (remember some, maybe all by now! are being paid by you to take care of the illegal alien “children!”)

Ireland criticised for not taking enough “refugees”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2014

Refugee Council of Ireland protest outside Irish government buildings.

 

There is hope for Ireland after all! 

The ‘invasion of Europe’ is not getting there fast enough according to the Refugee Council of Ireland.

From Irish Central:

Ireland is bottom of the European league table when it comes to offering asylum to refugees – including those from war torn Syria – according to a new report.

[....]

The Eurostat report says: “The three largest groups of beneficiaries of protection status in the EU28 in 2013 remained citizens of Syria (35,800 persons or 26 percent of the total number of persons granted protection status), Afghanistan (16,400 or 12 percent) and Somalia (9,700 or 7 percent).

[....]

Ireland allowed only 150 out of 840 applicants asylum status while 55 others received interim permission to remain in the state.

The figures put the country at the bottom of the league along with the Baltic and some south-eastern European states.
