Australia “closed” so fake asylum seekers will try to break into New Zealand

In the best demonstration there is that Australia’s policy of towing boats full of mostly Muslim illegal aliens back to Indonesia is working is a story like this one—human traffickers are now setting their sights on New Zealand.

See our Australia category for all the news on the Abbott government’s tough policy.

To American and European readers, we want you to know that some first world countries are taking steps to stop the illegal alien flow!

From the Sydney Morning Herald last week (Hat tip: the ever-vigilant ‘pungentpeppers’).  Emphasis is mine:

Jakarta: People smugglers in Indonesia are mounting their first credible attempt to ship asylum seekers on the hazardous voyage to New Zealand and circumvent the Abbott government’s Operation Sovereign Borders.

Four men – two from Bangladesh and two from Afghanistan – were caught last month by the Indonesian immigration department in Jayapura, West Papua, on their way to get a boat to New Zealand.

Their capture appears to have stalled, for the time being, a plot to send up to 100 people, but sources in West Java say people smugglers in the town of Cisarua are still advertising for places on a New Zealand-bound boat.

Easier to get into New Zealand than Australia?

One of the men in custody, Bangladeshi Mohammad Saiful Islam Tanu told Fairfax Media that when he had arrived earlier this year from Malaysia to Cisarua – where many asylum seekers wait as they try to get to Australia – he had been told by others that the Abbott government had “closed the way”.

“The Australian government already is closed [the way] because every boat going to Australia comes back to Indonesia. So many people say it’s impossible. Now we not try to go to Australia,” Mr Saiful said. “What can I do? And [a people smuggler] Mr Jafar told me, ‘You can go to New Zealand from Papua’.”

Mr Saiful said the smugglers had told them that it was easier to be accepted in New Zealand than Australia.

New Zealand has taken steps to deter the migrants in advance!  They will be detained!

A spokeswoman for the New Zealand embassy in Jakarta said New Zealand had never had a “mass arrival” (defined as 30 or more), but that “we are aware that people smugglers continue to express interest in targeting New Zealand through a variety of avenues, including both air and sea routes”.

[....]

Though New Zealand has been protected from the rash of asylum seekers by its distance, it has passed relatively tough new laws in case of this development. Anyone coming as part of a mass arrival can be detained until their circumstances are assessed. Even for those found eligible, there is no guarantee of permanent residence.

Who says a “refugee” has a right to a life in a first world country?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 8, 2014

Hmmm!  Good question!  We’ve been so beaten over the head with this concept—refugees and asylum seekers ask for/demand entry into an advanced society—we assume somehow it’s the law.

Israel’s MK Michal Rosin : “Israel is responsible for the fate of the asylum seekers …”

Two countries are challenging the premise—Australia and Israel.

If the refugees and asylum seekers are looking only for an escape from persecution, why not let other smaller, less-developed countries give them a home?

Readers remember this—migration for economic reasons does not make one a refugee.

Here is Immigration Minister Scott Morrison in Australia on Monday. The Leftists must be screaming in Canberra!

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

In his strongest indication yet that he is looking to send refugees to Cambodia, Immigration Minister Scott Morrison has warned that the right to resettlement is not a ticket to a better life in a first world country.

His warning has followed recent visits by Mr Morrison and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop to Cambodia, and has fuelled speculation the Abbott government is in negotiations to send asylum seekers on Nauru who are found to be refugees, to the developing country.

Mr Morrison said resettlement was about sending people to places where they would be free from persecution.

“I just don’t buy into this argument that only first world countries are able to participate in resettlement,” he told Sky News.

And in Israel, the Leftists are spitting mad as they learn some African asylum seekers (from Israel) are going willingly to Rwanda.   By the way, we learned previously that they are going with money in their pockets which this article does not mention.

From Haaretz via EastAfro (Israel Slammed for Sending Asylum Seekers to Rwanda without Status, Rights):

The government is facing criticism after Haaretz discovered that African asylum seekers from Eritrea and Sudan who agree to leave Israel voluntarily are being sent to Rwanda and Uganda without the benefit of official documentation or any guarantees of basic rights.

Asylum seekers who have been sent to these African countries have said that they do not receive any support from any government upon arrival, and that no one is doing anything to look after them.

About 10 days ago, Interior Minister Gideon Sa’ar said 81 asylum seekers have voluntarily left Israel for African states. The government has refused to say which countries are taking in the asylum seekers or to disclose other details of its agreements with these states.

MK Michal Rosin (Meretz) will convene an extraordinary session of the Knesset Committee on Foreign Workers, which she chairs, to discuss the agreements.

This is worth watching!  The UN High Commissioner for Refugees must be having a heart attack over this idea!  But, why not spread the refugee burden to less-developed countries?

By the way, I expect both Cambodia and Rwanda are receiving generous foreign aid from Australia and Israel, so now they are getting something in return!

Australia would love for Cambodia to take some Australian asylum seekers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 5, 2014

I’ve been remiss this past week in keeping up with the refugee problems facing other civilized countries because so much hot news has happened in the US.   Turning now to Australia:

Foreign minister Julie Bishop met with Cambodian prime minister in February. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-02-23/an-cambodian-minister-says-australia-has-requested-cambodia-to-/5278248

You gotta hand it to the conservative government in Australia for coming up with creative ideas to stem the tide of illegal aliens trying to break into Australia.

It makes me laugh to think of the Middle Easteners trying to reach Australia by boat, and who want Australians to take care of them, to be sent to Cambodia!  They will be safe there and isn’t that what they want?

From ABC News:

Prime Minister Tony Abbott says he would welcome a decision by Cambodia to accept asylum seekers from Australia.

Immigration Minister Scott Morrison is in Cambodia, where he has held talks with the country’s interior minister to follow up on an earlier request for the country to help resettle asylum seekers.

In February, the Cambodian government revealed that Foreign Minister Julie Bishop had asked their country to accept some asylum seekers.

Read it all!

Hey, here is an idea!  Since Mexico is the 14th largest economy (by GDP out of 193 countries in 2012) in the world, let’s ask Mexico to take some of the tens of thousands of ‘asylum seekers’ who arrive on our borders!

Australia: Afghan asylum-seeker charged in rape case, one victim was 9-year-old boy

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 26, 2014

From The Australian (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

Immigration Minister Morrison: He will be detained one way or another pending trial.

 IMMIGRATION Minister Scott Morrison has confirmed that a man accused of abducting and raping a nine-year-old boy is an Afghan asylum-seeker.

Omid Roshan, 21, has been charged with abduction, two counts of rape and three counts of committing an indecent act with a child following the alleged incident in Melbourne’s southeastern suburbs earlier this month.

He was arrested by the NSW sexual crime squad in Sydney last week after Victorian detectives learned that he had travelled interstate.

It is alleged Mr Roshan, who lived in Dandenong, asked the boy to get into his car in the neighbouring suburb of Doveton and then drove to nearby Eumemmerring before sexually assaulting him. The boy was later released.

Mr Roshan faced the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Friday and did not seek bail.

Mr Morrison yesterday confirmed Mr Roshan was an Afghan asylum-seeker who would not live in the community while facing criminal charges. “If this individual for whatever reason happens to be released by the court to face it on another occasion then he will go straight back into detention,” Mr Morrison told Sydney radio 2GB.

One sure would hope so!

Are these the refugees we really want in Australia?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 24, 2014

Diversity is beautiful alert!

Reader ‘petzix’ sent us this recent op-ed which describes an incident on a boat carrying illegal migrants to Australia.

Readers here know that Australia’s government under Prime Minister Tony Abbott has been making great strides in closing the borders to the mostly Muslim aliens arriving by boat.

From Andrew Bolt writing at the Herald Sun News (emphasis mine):

THE ABC’s 7.30 on Monday accidentally showed exactly why we should stop the boats of illegal immigrants — and not only to end the drowning.

The ABC’s footage, including video shot by boat people turned back last month, actually showed a dangerous cultural difference.

How could these 34 people from Iran, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal — mostly Muslim countries that are neither war-torn nor famine-struck — think that threatening to kill our sailors, shouting “f— Australia” and warning of another September 11 would make us unlock our hearts and our door?

And how many people just like them are among the more than 50,000 Labor let sail in uninvited, even taxiing them in on our warships?

Last month our Navy — under new instruction from the Abbott Government — towed another boatload of illegal immigrants back to Indonesia after intercepting them at sea and transferring them into an unsinkable lifeboat.

Some on the lifeboat filmed their tow-back on their mobile phones and, evidently to win our sympathy, gave the footage to the ABC — their friendliest media outlet.

They also gave interviews to tell of the alleged inhumanity of our sailors.

I don’t criticise the ABC for broadcasting all this on Monday and do not accuse it of bias. In fact, I praise it for not deleting footage from the boat people, which actually discredited them.

And here is the point: how complete is the cultural disconnect between such boat people and their Australian audience that they thought their story would soften our hearts?

First, the ABC admitted its main subject, Iranian Arash Sedigh, who is pictured, twice tried to smuggle himself and his wife here by boat after he’d been “refused entry to Australia through the skilled migration program”. Sedigh added: “We decided to go there in illegal way, to make them accept us.”

This sounded like a man we didn’t want telling us we had no right to reject him.

Next, Sedigh said after his boat was intercepted, he warned our sailors: “I will kill you if you don’t take us to that ship. I have nothing to lose. I will kill you. Believe me.”

Then, as the 34 illegal immigrants were towed back to Indonesia, they filmed themselves shouting “f— Australia” and raising the middle finger.

Sedigh even had himself filmed issuing this warning: “F— Australia … If later on you said why they do that to America on September 11, you should know the cause of it is your very deeds.

“Remember 9/11 for United States. All the world should know why.”

There is a bit more and the video, click here.

Guess where this photo was taken?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2014

Yesterday we had a photo from Sweden where a disgruntled subway rider pulled a gun when he didn’t have the fare.

Here is today’s disgruntled migrant who didn’t have his bus fare.  Thanks to reader ‘petzix‘ for sending us the story.  Petzix says the man administering the beating is a Somali.

Can you guess from where?

That is the bus driver on the ground!

The Gold Coast, Australia!  Here!

But at least in Australia they are trying to get their migrant/asylum seeker invasion under control, not so in Sweden.

See ‘strategy session’ with Somalis and white organizer on how to break into Australia, here.

Addendum:  After I posted this, I see that ‘pp’ had alerted us to a TV show on Australia’s illegal migrant problem this past week, here.   The Australian had this to say about the show.

Australian academic: the public is against asylum seekers arriving by boat!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 18, 2014

Warns refugee activists that they are out of touch and have little chance of winning over the public!

Taking action! Fully-equipped Australian lifeboat reportedly used to ferry intercepted boat people back to where they came from!

Meanwhile, in touch with public opinion, the government has proposed a significant decrease in the number of refugees permitted to stay in Australia annually.

From SBS.com (emphasis mine):

An academic says refugee advocates are out of touch with popular opinion, which is overwhelmingly against asylum seekers who arrive by boat.

Professor Andrew Markus is a member of the Scanlon Foundation which has been mapping public opinion on this issue since 2007.

He says asylum seeker advocates need to take notice of the fact that their opinions about asylum seekers are not shared by the majority of Australians.

Professor Andrew Markus from Monash University in Melbourne has researched widely in the areas of immigration and social cohesion.

Public concern for border protection second only to the economy!

He says in one recent survey of around 1000 people, border protection was rated as the second most important issue facing Australia after the economy.

Professor Markus adds that his own analysis suggests border protection is a growing public concern.

Young or old, educated or not so well-educated, less than 20% of those surveyed support boat people being allowed to stay in Australia.

“I’ve done all sorts of analysis by every different demographic you care to find. And one of the very unusual features on the asylum issue, it’s that normally by level of education or by age, there’s a big division. If you’re better educated you’re much more likely to be receptive to cultural diversity. But on the asylum issue you don’t get that just a marginal difference. Similarly young people are much more accepting and again we don’t get that normal split that we would normally get.”

The Scanlon Foundation has released a yearly report on immigration and social cohesion since 2007, based on surveys of around 2000 people.

Its most recent survey found that less than 20 per cent of Australians think asylum seekers arriving by boat should be given permanent residency.

Professor Markus says that’s a reality that refugee advocates can’t ignore.

But, of course they do, just yesterday the Refugee Council of Australia decried the plans by the  government to reduce the number of refugees permitted in Australia from 20,000 to 13,750 annually.  Imagine the furor in the US (from the resettlement contractors) if Congress said NO! to the President and cut US refugee admission by the same percentage!

Reports of asylum seekers rioting on Manus Island surely don’t help the Refugee Council’s public relations campaign!  Nor does news, like that we reported yesterday from multi-culti Blacktown, help their cause.  *Update: Asylum seeker dies in Manus Island escape attempt, here.

About the photo!  Read all about the “alien-looking” alien transport vessels reportedly purchased by the Australian government, here.  It sure looks like they mean business!

A reminder: check those “Top Posts” daily!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 18, 2014

We’ve had a lot of new readers and more interest lately in Refugee Resettlement issues facing first world countries.   In some cases a story catches fire on facebook and our numbers soar.  If you check the “Top Posts” (right hand sidebar) every day, you can get an idea of what stories are interesting our readers around the world.

Yesterday, the Lewiston, Maine post from last week took off.    And, our fact sheet (US), is a hit every day!

Although the majority of our readers are from the US, we have thousands upon thousands visiting from around the world.  Looking back over the last two years (when wordpress began giving us stats from other countries), these are the top ten countries from which we host visitors to RRW (the order switches around slightly from month to month but the list below is the approximate order) with the UK topping the list:

UK
Australia
Canada
Germany
S. Africa
Thailand
India
Sweden
Netherlands
France

Not far behind France is Malta!

We bring you stories from around the world just so you know that the refugee/asylum issue is plaguing industrialized countries everywhere and your concern here in America, that excessively high numbers of migrants are attempting to get into America, is shared by others who fear for their country, their culture, and the potentially disastrous impact on Western civilization as a result of demographic change.

Some countries are taking action to stem the tide—front and center right now is Australia!

Blacktown, Australia: a look into the future for your diverse American city?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 17, 2014

Diversity is beautiful alert!  (Brought to you by failed do-gooder policies)

It’s a news story about a rape—a gang of Sudanese refugee boys raped a girl from Western Samoa and now the suburb of Sydney in New South Wales is in turmoil again with revenge on many people’s minds.

Racial tensions rise! From the Sydney Morning Herald (hat tip ‘pungentpeppers’).

The article opens with a report of what happened and that one arrest has been made so far.   We pick up with the sections of the story that report on efforts being made by those looking for “social cohesion” to calm the inflamed situation.  Not a race crime they are quick to say:

Community leaders hope the arrest will send a clear signal that the matter is best left in the hands of the authorities. At a hastily convened meeting earlier in the week, prompted by media coverage, the new police commander for Blacktown, Superintendent Gary Merryweather, youth leaders, school principals and social welfare agencies discussed how to get the message out that the alleged crime was not a race crime.

”There is not more of race crime here than anywhere else” says Susan Vogels, chief executive of migrant services organisation SydWest. ‘‘It’s just that Blacktown seems to be an easy hit, we get the reputation for it, and it’s very wearing because of all the work we are doing to ensure social cohesion.’’

OMG!  They think “harmony walks” will bring social cohesion!  If one were allowed to do a comedy skit of just such a walk it would be roll-on-the-floor funny!

One immediate outcome of the meeting was the resumption of the ‘‘harmony walks’’ begun by Superintendent Merryweather’s predecessor, Mark Wright, several years ago, when regular fights were flaring between bored young men from rival ethnic groups in the Blacktown area. On Thursday, local police set out on foot with high-profile leaders from the African and Pacific Islander communities, weaving through places frequented by youngsters.

184 different ethnic groups live in Blacktown!  They “find their way” to Australia from the world’s trouble spots!

Blacktown is the most heavily populated local government area in NSW. Its nearly 320,000 residents come from 184 different national and ethnic backgrounds. An estimated quarter of them are aged under 18. Some fleeing Syria’s carnage are starting to find their way to Blacktown.

‘They come from wherever the trouble spots in the world are,’’ says Ms Vogels, ‘‘and we try to assist them to become good, functioning citizens.’’

But she admits agencies like hers are ‘‘running on the smell of a greasy rag and that rag is getting less and less oil on it’’.

It’s about gangs—race not always a catalyst—say gang members.

Two teenage Sudanese boys who spoke to Fairfax Media behind a basketball court in Blacktown on Thursday evening said their weekends were consumed by drinking and fighting, although race was not always the catalyst.

‘‘It’s all about who your boys are,’’ said Deng, 16, whose surname has been withheld. ‘‘You gotta defend the area. You gotta defend the honour of Blacktown.’’ Adam, 17, says: ‘‘There’s Bloods, Crips, Lalor Park boys, Bidwill boys.’’

Now, that bad ‘ol conservative government has cut the funds for pet programs (that obviously weren’t working!):

Among programs to have suffered is the ‘‘Comm4Unity’’ program in Blacktown, which runs singing and dancing competitions for young people at the Westpoint shopping centre, allowing hundreds of youths from different ethnic backgrounds to mingle and make friends.

Sudanese mother of TEN!  I can’t keep the older boys in school!

In the park, four police officers were questioning a 15-year-old boy, the son of 40-year-old Asunta, who came from South Sudan seven years ago. She stood nearby, agitated, carrying a four-month-old on one hip. She has 10 children and it is hard, she says, to keep the older boys at school.

So where is the father of all these children?

From Malmo, Sweden to Blacktown, Australia, the lesson is—it doesn’t work!  It is human nature to defend ones territory, culture and ethnicity and to fight for survival (now handouts from generous governments).  Grand diversity experiments, where ethnic groups are forced into close association (even with harmony walks and singing and dancing competitions), only exacerbates the drive for survival of one’s ethnic or racial group.

The one group that seems to have a death wish is made up of white people!

Australia: Afghan asylum-seeker guilty of groping girls

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 14, 2014

Just so you know that problems with so-called “asylum seekers,” and the question of detaining them, is happening all over the world, here is a case in Australia—a guy named Mohammed can’t resist the infidel girls.  Ho hum! What else is new?

From the Daily Telegraph (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers):

AN asylum seeker who “traumatised” seven teenage girls by indecently groping them in the Sydney Olympic Park pool had only been in Australia for six months, a court has heard.

Mohammed Salem Nazari pleaded guilty at Burwood Local Court yesterday to two charges of indecent assault on two 18-year-old girls and five offences of indecently assaulting a person under the age of 16 at the pool.

The 33-year-old, who doesn’t speak English, assaulted the girls — the youngest aged 14 — in the Rapid River Ride whirlpool within 25 minutes on December 8.

The asylum seeker had recently arrived in Australia from Afghanistan and was on a bridging visa.

His lawyer told Burwood Local Court last year that Nazari was “a poor or non-swimmer” and only came into contact with the girls due to the current in the pool.

After initially pleading not guilty to the charges during an unsuccessful bail application late last year, Nazari reversed that yesterday and admitted all of the accusations.

Here is that interpreter issue again!  ($$$$ for Australian taxpayers)

Nazari required a Dari interpreter during all of his court appearances.

In Australia they have this so-called ‘bridging visa’ which allows some asylum seekers to roam free, and Nazari’s visa was cancelled when charges were filed.  This is one more case that argues for detention.

Just a reminder!  We learned this week that only a tiny fraction of “asylum seekers” are held in detention in the US.

Immigration Minister Scott Morrison’s office confirmed in December that Nazari’s visa had been cancelled and court papers said he was the “subject of an immigration hold”.

It came after a Coalition crackdown on asylum seekers and bridging visa holders in trouble with the law.

Under the previous government some asylum seekers remained in the community while facing charges with revocations considered on a case-by-case basis.

After serving his sentence, Nazari is expected to be deported.   Frankly, he is too dumb to be allowed to stay.
