Canada: Will gay Russians now be seeking asylum in the West?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 11, 2013

Update August 16th:  The Wall Street Journal has a story, here, about gay Russians who seek asylum in the US.

There is a story from Canada yesterday that got me thinking that this could be the next big scam for Russians to get into the US and Canada.  Earlier generations of Russian “refugees” claimed religious persecution in the old Soviet Union and that bought them a ticket to America.

Homosexuality is a hanging offense under Shariah Law in certain Muslim countries, but not in Russia.

Will Russia’s newest laws discouraging homosexual behavior produce the next wave?   And, here is what I’ve wanted to know ever since the US refugee contractors began their campaign to resettle more gays/lesbians—how do you know if he or she is lying?  Are we going to have witnesses in the bedroom or simply take their word for it?  Or, here is an idea, we could have people with finely honed ‘gaydar’ detection abilities interview them (I can hear the howls from our PC readers!).

From The Vancouver Sun:

A Vancouver immigration lawyer says he has seen a jump in business from Russia after new anti-gay laws came into force.

While it’s still too soon to say whether a crackdown on homosexuals in Russia will result in a spike in refugee claims from that country, lawyer Ron Hughes, who specializes in gay and lesbian asylum claimants, is beginning to notice a difference.

Hughes handles a few dozen lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) cases a year and the last time he had a Russian client was before the fall of the Soviet Union – until now.

Go to the article and read more details of recent asylum cases in Canada.  However, this, near the end, was of interest to me.  Whenever I see lists like this, I wonder how the Far Left (great advocates for gay rights) actually works side-by-side with the Islamic agitators in the US like CAIR.

As a matter of fact, gay activists in the US should be working side-by-side with conservative judicial warriors fighting to keep Shariah law out of American courts!

Homosexual criminality 75 countries consider consensual sexual acts between adults of the same sex to be a criminal offence: Punishable by death: Iran, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Yemen, and parts of Nigeria, Gambia and Somalia.

Punishable by jail: Afghanistan, Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Antigua and Barbuda, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belize, Bhutan, Botswana, Brunei, Burma, Burundi, Cameroon, Comoros, Cook Islands, Dominica, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gaza Strip, Ghana, Grenada, Guinea, Guyana, Jamaica, Jamaica, Kenya, Kiribati, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritania, Mauritius, Morocco, Namibia, Nauru, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Qatar, Samoa, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Solomon Islands, Somalia, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent & the Grenadines, Sudan, Swaziland, Syria, Tanzania, Togo, Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, Turkmenistan, Tuvalu, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Zambia, Zimbabwe.

Note 1: Jamaica has some of the toughest sodomy laws in the world short of the death penalty, with homosexual activity carrying a 10-year prison sentence.

Note 2: Homosexuality is legal in Russia, but recent new laws make pro-gay “propaganda” illegal.

    When men live together, and need immigration papers, how dare you suggest their relationship is perhaps not sexual?! LOL! Add into it the fact that immigration petitions are confidential, a man doesn’t have to tell his family what ruse he used to gain status here. If he wants to marry later – no problem. Marry overseas, keep your wife overseas, and visit her 6 months out of the year. If you’re caught, tell immigration that your family forced you to marry – or say you are bisexual! 😉
