More on those refugee “processing countries” (who is coming in from where? why?)

….For those of you who are hardcore refugee research geeks!

rpcLogoSmall [Converted]I’ve mentioned ‘processing countries’ from time to time over the years with a special animus for the program (initiated during the Bush Admin) to bring ‘refugees’ in to the US from Malta.

These ‘refugees’ are primarily economic migrants (but what else?) who crossed the Mediterranean from North Africa in hopes of getting farther north in Europe.  For some never-explained reason we take hundreds to America every year.

So this morning when I wrote about how NGOs are being accused of aiding and abetting the human traffickers to Europe, I mentioned processing countries again.

I thought it would be a good idea now to bring this to the attention of the Trump transition team and Members of Congress who care about our security.  How can we possibly know who these wandering (mostly Muslim) ‘refugees’ are? And, since most are being processed first by the United Nations, can we trust the UN?

We are entitled to know which ethnic groups come through these processing countries! 

We know from news reports that Syrians are coming in from Turkey and Jordan. We are still bringing thousands from Iraq. We know that a large number of the Somalis come to the US from Kenya, but we know from news reports that Somalis make their way all over the world and get to such odd places as Pakistan, Malaysia, South Africa (the rainbow nation!) and Malta and then we pick them up as refugees (if they are legit refugees why didn’t they just go to the UN camps in Kenya?).

Hint to Trump team: Note that we take zero Somalis directly from Somalia so you won’t be able to say we are pausing immigration from Somalia, you must refer to the ethnic group no matter where in the world we get them!

I want you to have a look at the numbers (screenshot below) of those who have come in the US in just the first two months of the fiscal year (October 1, 2016 to November 30, 2016), many from countries where they would have been perfectly safe.  (Having fun with geography!)

BTW, it is important to capture this information now because by the end of the next month, these maps disappear down some black hole at (or at least I can’t find them!).

    1. It does. It is very troubling. Clearly this can’t go on forever, but there are no signs that it lets up (except for maybe in the dead of winter). But each group of African migrants brings Europe and its culture closer to its end.

      1. Lately I have been reading a lot about the huge number of African migrant barbarians that are taking over Italy. This video from the NY Times is designed to tug at heart strings all over the world, but when I see it, I get sick to my stomach. This kind of migration from the hell holes of Africa is simply not sustainable. Look at these people in the video- they are not even literate or civilized in their own language and culture! No way will they EVER be assimilated into European / Western society. And who the hell is telling them that all they have to do is make it across the Med and then the streets will be paved with gold?

        This doctor and his staff are obviously good people, trying to save lives, but it cannot go on much longer! I hate to say it but the only way to stop the millions of Africans who are on their way here is STOP RESCUING THEM. I know this sounds harsh, but it is the only way. AS LONG AS THEY KEEP RESCUING THEM, THEY WILL KEEP COMING! It’s as simple as that.

        Think of Italy like a lifeboat. You can only fit so many people. If you try to take in too many, everyone will drown. That is what’s happening. Until the politicians stop trying to commit national suicide, there is no choice but to stop the rescues. Yes, some people will die but as soon as they find out that there is no one to rescue them, they will think twice about making the trip. Sorry to sound so cruel, but it is either us or them. My children and grandchildren or theirs. I have made my choice.

        1. Yes, absolutely. A few years ago then Prime Minister Tony Abbott of Australia told the Europeans they must turn the boats back to the African coast literally blockading Europe. After only a few boats were turned back this would all stop! Now we have those NGO rescue boats actually going to Libyan waters and plucking them out of the sea right there and transporting them to Italy. If you have ever wondered what it must have felt like to live in an important moment in world history, this is it! We are watching the death of Europe!

  1. Hi Ann,

    Thanks for sharing this important ( but depressing!) refugee news every day to so many!

    Our America has certainly changed since the Feds were hell-bent on sending little Elian Gonzalez back to Cuba!

  4. Ann,
    I am sure you’ve touched upon this many times however it’s worth reminding Hillary voters or Third Party well wIshers at this year’s ballot box. After the migrant who come to country have completed their language courses and new career training; who do you do you think might be given the highest hiring preference by both Federal and State Agencies. In the beginning the Migrants will lieley be paid a declining subsidy. The employer will probably pay a lower salary to start due =to =a government wage subsidy and receive some tax break
    Who will suffer Jessie, Big AL Millinaires and RAZA? Latinos/Hispancs with status or status or citizenship and African Americans born here especially if they are =non-Muslims. So the new Ourtsiders ender the country with a ready made plan while tbe very People suffering for decade being promised time and again by the Democrats and Barack Husseien Obama “Change’ was his motto. Nothing changed for you =only for the Muslim Somal, North Afrcan, =Syrian, iraqui, everyone but you a abonafide American.
    GO to your Senator =and =Congressman =and =ask =how =this =possible. =How =did =they =vote. =When are =you =getting =your =dues =and =you =want =yours =before =Outsiders. =Tell them =you =will =pay =attention


  5. The U.S. History with In-Country Processing

    In-country processing was initially used by the United States in the 1970s in the context of the Cold War as a method of promoting foreign policy objectives and to provide a means of escape for individuals, such as political dissidents, who were being persecuted in their country of origin and where the home country was willing to let them leave. The UN Refugee Convention and U.S. law define a refugee as someone who is outside his or her country of origin; however, the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) provides the president the authority to designate countries whose nationals may be processed for refugee status within their home country.

    In-country processing has been used by the United States most comprehensively in Vietnam starting in 1979, followed by programs beginning in the late 1980s and early 1990s in the Soviet Union, Cuba, and Haiti. The Orderly Departure Program, initiated to stem the tide of people fleeing post-war Vietnam by boat, processed more than 523,000 individuals for admission to the United States as refugees, immigrants, and parolees between 1979 and 1999; nearly 400,000 additional Vietnamese refugees were admitted through other programs, including refugees in first asylum countries in the region.

    In the 1990s, the United States opened the Naval Station at Guantanamo Bay to refugee processing for thousands of Haitians fleeing persecution following a coup (see Box 1). The policy of interdiction and offshore processing was implemented in concert with an in-country program based at the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince. Very few of those who applied in Haiti succeeded in gaining entry to the United States, despite high levels of violence and persecution. Between the start of the program in February 1992 and the end of FY 1994, 5,209 people were admitted. The U.S. base at Guantanamo Bay continues to be used to facilitate refugee processing for Haitians, Cubans, and other Caribbean asylum seekers.
