UNHCR: Not letting a good crisis go to waste! Big push to change definition of a “refugee”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 8, 2014

The international Socialist and Communist One-Worlders who call the UN home are making their big move! 

Antonio Guterres, the present UN High Commissioner for Refugees, is a life-long Socialist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ant%C3%B3nio_Guterres

If Obama’s US State Department concurs with this brazen initiative we will be stuck with thousands (millions ultimately) of people claiming to be fleeing crime in their country.

To date fear of crime does NOT MAKE ONE A REFUGEE and thus eligible for all of the “protections” and social service goodies refugees receive.

From the Associated Press (Hat tip: Edward)

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) — United Nations officials are pushing for many of the Central Americans fleeing to the U.S. to be treated as refugees displaced by armed conflict, a designation meant to increase pressure on the United States and Mexico to accept tens of thousands of people currently ineligible for asylum.

Officials with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees say they hope to see movement toward a regional agreement on that status Thursday when migration and interior department representatives from the U.S., Mexico, and Central America meet in Nicaragua. The group will discuss updating a 30-year-old declaration regarding the obligations nations have to aid refugees.

While such a resolution would lack any legal weight, the agency said it believes “the U.S. and Mexico should recognize that this is a refugee situation, which implies that they shouldn’t be automatically sent to their home countries but rather receive international protection.”

Most of the people widely considered to be refugees by the international community are fleeing more traditional political or ethnic conflicts like those in Syria or the Sudan. Central Americans would be among the first modern migrants considered refugees because they are fleeing violence and extortion at the hands of criminal gangs.

Here is what we said in a post on Sunday.  Changing the definition of what constitutes a “refugee” is something they have been after for years!

Here is the definition of a refugee as updated in 1967 (from the original 1951 UN Convention):

A person who owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country; or who, not having a nationality and being outside the country of his former habitual residence as a result of such events, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to it..”[8]

Do you see anything in there about wars, violence or natural disasters?   Refugees and asylum seekers are supposed to be able to prove they are being persecuted!  Economic migrants and people who claim they are fleeing crime are not refugees!

Obama said he would transform America.  Well this is it folks!  This is the big move and the dumb Republicans in Washington apparently can’t see 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.

Refugee contractors have organized campaign to get more tax dollars due to border invasion; Tennessee this time

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 6, 2014

Here is one more in a spate of stories ginned-up by the federal refugee contractors*** and their 350 subcontractors to bring media attention to their supposed plight.  Waahhhh! We are going to lose funding because of the flood of illegal alien teens (unaccompanied minors) now being treated as asylum-seekers by the Obama Administration (which by the way, the contractors helped encourage to come to America!).

Our solution as I said here yesterday:

Not enough money, stop bringing refugees into the US this year (and next year too).

These people remind me of animal hoarders with a psychological ailment who fill their homes with cats, don’t have the finances to care for them properly, and don’t know when to stop!

From The Tennessean (hat tip: Joanne).  LOL! You can always count on The Tennessean to help Catholic Charities whine!  Emphasis below is mine:

A surge in children illegally crossing the southwestern U.S. border in recent months may soon have an unexpected impact on refugees living in Nashville.

Last week, President Barack Obama asked Congress for more than $2 billion in emergency funds to help address a growing crisis along the Rio Grande, where more than 52,000 children traveling alone and 40,000 women with children have been apprehended illegally crossing the border since October.

[....]

Holly Johnson, Catholic Charities of Tennessee, decides which ethnic groups and how many refugees will come to the state. The state has no say in the matter. http://www.cctenn.org/node/531

The president’s solution would involve redirecting funding already budgeted for refugee programs across the country. Tennessee stands to lose more than $1.6 million of its annual $11 million budget. The cuts would hit programs designed to serve elderly refugees, children in schools and preventive health care for refugees, according to Holly Johnson, state refugee coordinator for the Tennessee Office of Refugees.

The president’s proposal puts refugee advocates in an uncomfortable position, pitting the needs of the population they serve against those of the newly arrived children…. [Too bad! Maybe the Catholic priests and lobbyists who went to Central America late last year shouldn't have encouraged the migrants to start moving north!---ed]

[....]

Tennessee accepted more than 1,600 refugees in the last fiscal year. Most of the refugees arriving in Tennessee come from Iraq, Burma, Bhutan, Somalia and Iran. Refugees, by definition, have fled or been forced to leave their countries to escape violence, persecution or natural disaster.

Definition of a Refugee

Tick me off!  Note how reporters just parrot what the contractors tell them about the definition of a refugee.  This has been going on for years—the open borders lobby re-defining “refugee” until it means anything they want, including kids who supposedly are fleeing gang violence.

Here is the definition of a refugee as updated in 1967 (from the original 1951 UN Convention):

A person who owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country; or who, not having a nationality and being outside the country of his former habitual residence as a result of such events, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to it..”[8]

Do you see anything in there about wars, violence or natural disasters?   Refugees and asylum seekers are supposed to be able to prove they are being persecuted!  Economic migrants and people who claim they are fleeing crime are not refugees!

See, US Catholic Bishops call the illegal aliens, refugees, here.

For our growing readership, all of our posts going back several years on ‘unaccompanied minors’ are here.

Boston: Somali former refugee charged with rape (possibly more than one)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 3, 2014

Just for a little change of pace tonight from the ever-expanding crisis on the border, ho-hum we will return to our never-ending Somali crime stories.  This time from Boston last week….

Somali Said Said facing rape charges in Massachusetts. Photo: Boston Globe

From the Boston Herald (Hat tip: crime sleuth ‘pungentpeppers’):

A second reported rape in the Seaport District by a livery driver in less than a year has the city’s taxi union and a South Boston state representative demanding a crackdown before another young woman is attacked in the trendy nightspot.

“This is a real public safety issue, particularly for women in my district,” said Southie state Rep. Nick Collins. “It’s something that we have to resolve and I’ll be looking to work with the city to come up with some new legislation.”

Said Said, 40, of 97 Doane­ St., Quincy, was ordered held on $35,000 cash bail yesterday at his arraignment in South Boston District Court after pleading innocent to charges of aggravated rape, unarmed robbery and receiving stolen property.

Police allege that at midnight Sunday, Said, who is of Somali descent, picked up a woman in a livery mini­van outside Legal Harborside restaurant on Northern Avenue and took her to a deserted South Boston location, where he raped her and stole her cellphone, cash and credit cards before dropping her off on State Street.

 He used the victim’s credit card.  Pretty dumb wouldn’t you say!

Police said they were able to track down Said after he was reportedly caught on surveillance camera using the alleged victim’s credit card to make a purchase at a Walgreens Pharmacy in Quincy.

The victim identified Said in a photo array set up by Boston police,­ according to court documents.

Attack is similar to one that occurred last summer:

Sunday’s alleged assault was eerily similar to an attack that occurred Aug. 6, 2013, when a woman told police she flagged down a livery sedan in South Boston thinking it was a taxi and was instead driven to a secluded area in Newton, where she was raped and assaulted by the driver.

The Boston Globe has more, here.

Using this opportunity to educate all of the new readers the ‘unaccompanied children’ are bringing to RRW, see this important testimony to the US State Department by a former refugee resettlement worker in Boston.

Kentucky: Could the invasion on the border result in fewer refugees admitted to US?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 3, 2014

Update July 4th:  They are crying for more money in Arizona now too! (Hat tip: Joanne).  Too many ‘unaccompanied minors’ siphoning off money for other refugees.  Someone commented to me yesterday, that the open borders pushers (including the Catholic Bishops!) may have over-played their hand this time.

That (fewer refugees) is what a spokesman for Kentucky Refugee Ministries told WFPL News in Louisville earlier this week (Influx of Young Refugees Pinches Kentucky Refugee Services’ Budget).

Or, more likely this is the opening salvo in a lobbying campaign in Congress (by the contractors) to get more of your taxpayer dollars to keep the thousands of Iraqis, Burmese, and Somalis, etc. flowing to middle America.   Thanks to all who sent this article.

Muslim refugee Mustafa allegedly embezzled money from Kentucky Refugee Ministries—is this what they mean by balancing the city? http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/06/01/kentucky-again-muslim-refugee-rips-off-his-resettlement-agency-but-that-is-not-the-whole-story/

WFPL News:

An increase of undocumented children coming into America is expected to reduce the funding for services available to displaced people living in Kentucky and across the U.S.

Kentucky Office for Refugees officials expect to see a $2.28 million cut in federal funding to provide refugees in Kentucky with services such as English language learning, career development and housing placement.

The reduction in funding stems from an influx of children coming to the U.S. to escape violence and economic struggle in Central America, refugee services officials said. To better serve these children, the Office for Refugee Resettlement is transferring nearly $94 million to the Unaccompanied Alien Children program. The $2.28 million Kentucky officials expect to lose is a part of the $94 million transfer.

Because of the cuts, thousands of newly arrived refugees would receive a limited amount of these services that aid in creating a seamless transfer to life in America, according to a statement released by Catholic Charities of Louisville.

There is nothing to stop these contractors from RAISING PRIVATE MONEY to do their supposedly charitable work!  They could ask their parishioners for money and hold bake sales!

When the original 1980 Refugee Act was pushed through Congress by Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden and signed into law by Jimmy Carter, there was no discussion of making these ‘religious’ charities quasi-government agencies as they have now become with the majority of their funding coming from you—the US taxpayers.

WFPL continued:

But if the cuts create such a problem that services cannot be provided, a smaller number of refugees may be brought to the United States, Koehlinger [Director of Kentucky Refugee Ministries] added.

[....]

More than 2,100 refugees relocated to Louisville in the 2013 fiscal year, according to data provided by Catholic Charities of Louisville. In 2014, the number is expected to remain about the same.

[....]

Koehlinger said the strong refugee population in Louisville is vital for a productive, balanced metropolitan area.

What the heck is a “balanced” metropolitan area?  Is that like in Rochester where resettlement contractors dropped off the docile Bhutanese into an African American neighborhood (see our post yesterday on the consequences for the refugees when the do-gooders do their multi-culty mixing experiments)?

See our extensive archive on Kentucky ( here).  They have had some humdinger problems with refugees there.  Mustafa was just the latest most visible problem!  (BTW, he took down his facebook photo and other juicy tidbits about where he has been for the last number of years right after we published the information).

One last thing!  Don’t cry for the contractors, most have largely been responsible for encouraging the invasion of the border because they are being paid to take care of the “children” too!

See all of our posts on ‘unaccompanied minors’ by clicking here.  The list is extremely long now and extends back several years.

Rochester, NY: Bhutanese refugees fear violence from African Americans

The US State Department, the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) and whichever resettlement contractor they used in Rochester, NY to resettle these Bhutanese (Nepalese) are a bunch of nincompoops!

They must think that if they plunk down some new minority into an African American neighborhood that all of those people of different colors will somehow sympathize with each other and magically melt into a sort of blissful multicultural co-existence.

From the Democrat and Chronicle:

Locked inside their house in northwest Rochester, the Nepalese family felt under siege.

Outside, a crowd of young men — 20 to 25 in number — broke windows to the home and threatened to storm inside, according to members of the family. Moments before, several young men had followed and jumped a Nepalese teen. That scuffle then escalated into the menacing gang.

It wasn’t until the police came that the crowd scattered. This incident, in daylight hours Thursday, is another in a growing list of attacks against South Asian refugee families who have been settled in areas of northwest Rochester near Jones Square.

[....]

As law enforcement officials decide how to curb the intimidation and violence, the refugees themselves say they feel ignored and left to fend for themselves.

[....]

Many of the refugees are hesitant to talk to police, and, when they do, they have not been able to provide much information about their attackers. Typically, the offenders have been young African-American men, creating a volatile situation in which the refugees feel at risk in the very neighborhoods where they have been resettled.

Think that’s bad, just wait until potentially thousands of Central American teenage “refugee” boys arrive in upstate New York (resettled there by some of the same nincompoops!). 

They couldn’t create more chaos and strife if they tried (or, scary thought, maybe they are trying?).

For new readers (and we have many lately), here is just one post with a little history (Bush legacy also) about how we have resettled 75,000 Bhutanese/Nepalese in the last 6 years or so.

Sigh of relief in Sweden (NY): Illegal alien kids not coming to town after all!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 1, 2014

But, are they coming to yours?

An old Walmart store was apparently under consideration by the Office of Refugee Resettlement to house a large number of so-called ‘unaccompanied minors.’

Upstate NY Walmart ruled out as home for the Central American (mostly teenaged) boys crashing the US border.

From the Democrat and Chronicle (hat tip: Joanne):

Federal officials are no longer considering a former Walmart building in the town of Sweden as temporary housing for children who fled violence in Central America and are in the United States illegally.

Assemblyman Steve Hawley, R-Batavia, said in a news release Monday that after he raised concerns, the federal Department of Health and Human Services informed him that the site, which is near Brockport, no longer is on the table.

Hawley’s statement called the decision “the right one.”

“Brockport residents and upstate New York taxpayers can’t afford to be paying for the housing, health care and education of illegal immigrant children,” the statement said. “It’s important that we do everything to help these children, but Brockport is ill-equipped for such an undertaking long-term.”

Sweden Deputy Supervisor Robert Muesebeck said Town Hall received many phone calls from residents about the idea after it became public — most of them negative.

Muesebeck said Monday evening he had not been informed of federal officials’ decision.

“That would make a lot of our taxpayers and citizens happy,” he said.

Find out if the “kids” by the hundreds are coming to your town!

Asylee or refugee? Chart showing US “refugee” numbers is confusing

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 1, 2014

There is a chart making the rounds (several people have sent it to me) which supposedly shows the “origins” of “refugees” admitted to the US.   Although the text makes it clear that the numbers are for those granted “asylum” in the US (yes, they become refugees, aka asylees, for the purpose of getting their goodies), but to call them “refugees” is confusing.

A refugee is generally considered to be someone the UN selects abroad and is admitted into the US by the State Department after some initial screening.  A successful asylee is someone who got to the US on his or her own steam and then asked for asylum and were subsequently granted refugee status.

So why do the “unaccompanied minors” from Central America need lawyers? Because they are going to be applying for asylum (although most are economic migrants, not legitimate refugees). http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Texas/2014/06/05/Leaked-Images-Reveal-Children-Warehoused-in-Crowded-US-Cells-Border-Patrol-Overwhelmed

Also, the chart does not tell us what the time frame is for the numbers or where the author got them—are the numbers for 10 years, 5 years, one year???

Regular readers here can quickly see that the numbers are wrong if we are talking about “refugees” admitted by the US because leading that list in recent years are Iraqis, Burmese, Bhutanese and Somalis.

We don’t admit Chinese “refugees” in any great number.  This year (see stats here) for example in the same period that we took 32 Chinese “refugees” we have admitted 11,660 Iraqis.

Since the chart making the rounds lists Chinese “refugees” as over 65,000 it is clearly attempting to show “asylees” or “asylum seekers” (those who have not yet been granted asylum).   Those Chinese asylum seekers got in here through either illegal means or overstayed a visa (also illegal!).

By the way, most Chinese asylum seekers are frauds!  Remember this story from last February?

In fact, another bunch of frauds are the “unaccompanied kids” from mostly Central America who got in here illegally and are going to be seeking asylum.  If approved they will be refugees with all of the social services and rights available to a US citizen (except voting, but they will be doing that too!).   See our fact sheet for what refugees and asylees (those granted asylum) are eligible to receive.

Here is the government’s Annual Flow Report for 2012 which helps further make the distinction between “refugees” and “asylees.”  (Don’t ask me why they don’t have 2013 available, but I bet it’s because their “asylee” numbers are a chaotic mess or so over-the-top that they don’t want you to know!).

I sure hope that helps!

Somali voter fraud alleged in Minnesota House race

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 1, 2014

One hundred and forty Somalis registered to vote using the same address (where no one lives).

From KSTP news:

Absentee voting started Friday, six weeks ahead of primary elections. Already there are strong allegations of voter fraud.

The attorney for Phyllis Kahn says he got word Thursday night; there might be hundreds of people who are registering and voting using an address that’s not their home.

Absentee voting kicked-off Friday morning in a hotly contested democratic primary race for the state house between incumbent Phyllis Kahn and Mohamud Noor.

Brian Rice, attorney for the Phyllis Kahn Volunteer Committee, claims there’s voter fraud.

“I think there is a coordinated effort to use this address to bring voters into the DFL primary election on August 12, that’s what I think is going on,” Rice said. “It’s wrong, it violates Minnesota Law, it’s a crime.”

According to voter registration records from the Secretary of State’s office and the DFL Voter Activation Network more than 140 people used 419 Cedar Avenue South in Minneapolis as their home address, when they registered to vote.

The address is for what’s called Cedar Mailbox Center. The building manager and mail center’s employees weren’t comfortable speaking on camera, but they said they were surprised by the allegations.

They say nobody put the wrong address on purpose. For 13 years, many Somali-Americans from all across the state have been getting their mail there. They say nobody lives there.

This is the same Leftie political campaign/squabble that ended in fisticuffs back in February and the police had to be called in.

Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis?

I think that every day for over the last three years, this post (Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis?) has remained in our Top Posts.

Al-Hijra helpers!

Thank the US State Department and three federal contractors— Lutheran Social Services, Catholic Charities, and World Relief Minnesota—attracted to the state by generous welfare goodies gratis Minnesota taxpayers.  And, I would bet a buck that Phyliss Kahn and the DFL have been cheering the flood of Muslim migrants to the state for decades.

That reminds me, I wonder if Minnesota will be “welcoming” the unaccompanied minors from south of the border?  Do you live in Minnesota?  If so, call your state refugee coordinator and ask if the “kids are coming?”  Here is the list of all state refugee coordinators.

Related:  Sorry no time to write about it, but this was in my alerts today too—Minneapolis offers sharia-compliant loans to Somali and other Muslim business owners.  Special government-funded deals for special people!
