Jordan: Crime plagues refugee camp for Syrians
Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 15, 2013
Just keeping up with the news about Syrian refugees, so we have an archive developed when the day comes that the UN/US announces we are moving Syrians out of camps to your American (Canadian, Australian and European) towns.
From Fox News:
AMMAN, Jordan – The U.N. refugee chief says his agency is working with Jordan to bolster security at a camp for Syrian refugees where reports of drug trafficking, prostitution and other crimes have emerged.
Antonio Guterres says the Zaatari camp near the Jordanian-Syrian border now is de facto Jordan’s fourth-largest city, with a “complex” environment.
He told reporters in Amman on Wednesday that security will be “very strongly increased” and special measures will be undertaken to stop criminal activities.
Guterres spoke after meeting Prime Minister Abdullah Ensour to discuss mechanisms to ensure that the rule of law is carried out in the camp. He provided no details.
Remember Guterres doesn’t want to establish UN camps within Syria and on the border of Turkey and Jordan because he wants the Syrians to have the “right” to ask for asylum in the West. If they are within their own borders they don’t fit the definition of asylum seeker. Now with the criminal element growing, it’s all the more reason to begin the resettlement clamor.
Coincidentally, this popped up just this a.m. One of the top nine US Refugee contractors, the IRC, is looking to fill a position for a driver to get their workers back and forth SAFELY from Amman to Zarqa and Zaatari camps.
