Going to Canada! African failed asylum seekers passing through Minnesota to get to border

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 6, 2017

I’m sure many of you are saying, let ’em go! Boy Trudeau loves refugees he can have them!

But, this story at the Minneapolis Star Tribune is at once informative and fishy.

Note that although the numbers of Africans crossing in to Canada from the US grew the most during the Obama Administration, the reporter, Mila Koumpilova, wants to make it clear that he/she thinks that things will get even worse under Donald Trump’s administration.

Actually, maybe not, maybe if we promptly deport failed asylum seekers, they won’t be free to wander up to Canada!

Here is Koumpilova,

More than 430 African migrants have arrived in Winnipeg since April, up from 70 three years ago. Most come by way of Minneapolis, sometimes after grueling treks across Latin America and stints in U.S. immigration detention. [Donald Trump has only been President for a month, so they can’t pin this on him!—ed]

The men pay hundreds of dollars for middle-of-the-night cab rides north to the Canadian border. They wade into the Red River to dodge border agents in summer and trudge through waist-deep snow in winter. On Christmas Eve, two wandered in the wind-swept flatness and lost their fingers to frostbite.

Minnesota has become a key stop for a soaring number of migrants from Somalia and other African countries who sneak into Canada to seek asylum. More than 430 arrived in Winnipeg since April, up from 70 three years ago. Most come by way of Minneapolis, sometimes after grueling treks across Latin America and stints in U.S. immigration detention.

The exodus is now coinciding with new steps by the Trump White House to restrict immigrant and refugee entry — policies expected to spur even more crossings. [Is this reporting or editorializing?—ed]

[….]

A tangle of factors is fueling the surge: brisker traffic along an immigrant smuggling route out of East Africa, stepped-up deportations under the Obama administration and the lure of Canada’s gentler welcome. Advocates expect the Trump administration’s harder line on immigration will spur even more illegal crossings into Canada, where some nonprofits serving asylum seekers are already overwhelmed. Now Canadians worry smugglers are making fresh profits from asylum seekers and migrants take more risks to make the crossing. [Remember readers everyone expected Hillary to win, so they can’t pin this on Trump as if these illegal aliens who went to Canada last summer and fall had advance notice that immigration hardliner Trump would win!—ed]

So why did numbers crossing to Canada swell under Obama? I have an idea.

Koumpilova continues….

The number of migrants crossing near Emerson has swelled steadily since the early 2010s, based on data from Canadian border authorities. Provinces from Quebec to British Columbia have seen major increases as well. Almost 60 percent of the Manitoba arrivals since the start of the Canadian fiscal year in April were Somali, with growing contingents from Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Ghana.

Why don’t lazy, biased reporters ever ask where all the money comes from for the poor phony ‘refugees’ to travel across the world?

Samatar [Somali star of the story—ed] says he fled southern Somalia in a hurry. In neighboring Ethiopia began a grueling, monthslong journey: a flight to Brazil and a trek north through nine countries. What the smugglers did not tell him and other migrants: When they presented themselves to U.S. immigration authorities to seek asylum, they would be detained.

“I was totally not expecting I would be in jail,” Samatar said. “I was shocked.”

After his asylum application was rejected, he was released to await deportation. Within weeks, he was bound for Canada by way of Minneapolis.

And there you have the answer as to why these treks to Canada increased. In addition to Boy Trudeau putting out the welcome mat, the Obama Administration was releasing FAILED asylum seekers. Heck maybe human rights friends of Obama even gave them some money and a map to Canada!

A dozen recent border crossers interviewed in Winnipeg echoed Samatar’s story. Many paid $10,000 or more to smugglers who flew them to South America and ferried them north by bus, car, raft and on foot — a smuggling route first forged to shuttle Somalis stuck in long refugee resettlement waits or with no access to that program. They report fleeing mandatory yearslong military service in Eritrea, discrimination against gays in Ghana and general poverty and unrest in the region. [What the hell! No access to refugee resettlement! We have taken well over 100,000 Somalis in the last two decades!—ed]

Then came time in U.S. immigration detention and the denial of their asylum claims. [These illegal aliens who came in through South America, Central America  and Mexico could have asked for asylum in any safe country along the way. They are not legitimate asylum seekers and obviously the asylum judges agreed!—ed]

And, look at this! Formerly FAILED Somali asylum seekers were just allowed to blend into American towns and cities!

Meanwhile, the pace of deportations to Somalia has picked up. In previous years, the United States mostly sent back people who came legally as refugees but committed crimes before becoming citizens, says Minneapolis attorney Marc Prokosch. Those with rejected asylum applications and no criminal records were “left alone.” But last year, more of them started hearing from immigration authorities they would be sent back soon.

There is a lot more in this story, click here.

See our previous posts on the trek of illegal Africans to Canada through Minnesota and North Dakota, here top two posts.

The way to solve this problem (if Canada wants it solved) is to make sure that the US DEPORTS FAILED ASYLUM SEEKERS and does not release them from detention before they can be deported!

Tell Donald Trump what you think, here.

    A really, REALLY, great question is asked in this post: where oh where is the money coming from for these “refugee invaders” to fly and travel and pay cabs for long trips?
    I have a possible answer. The money comes from the leadership of islam.
    islam wants full control of the earth. Western Europe is well on its way to destruction as civilized, but America and Canada have to fall too.
    More and more islamic invaders must arrive and slither in to all facets of civilized life…and when the order comes…side with their brothers.
    A reminder: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A ‘MODERATE’ MUSLIM.
    ****
    Especially America (WITH ITS SECOND AMENDMENT) “must” fall before islam can claim victory.

      Do you have a degree in Religion? How do you know that “there is no such thing as a ‘Moderate’ Muslim’?
      It’s sounding more and more like there is no such thing as a ‘Moderate’ Christian!

      Perhaps these people are using all their money, and the money of their relatives, to escape famine and persecution in their lands. Perhaps they have worked for the money. Have you ever thought of that? Do you have any idea of the sacrifices these people have made to get here?

      For your information, the Christian religion and whites make up only 1 part of the world. We’d better learn to better live with the rest if we want to survive.
      Trump’s fear mongering and hate makes matters worse for the US, not better.

      Deporting illegal immigrants might be ok, but not in the winter. At least be a bit more humane about it. People who have no idea about the harsh northern winters are crossing into Canada wearing Spring clothing, traveling for hours on foot. And losing all their fingers. Many will die.

    Where does the money for their travels originate? Poor people from any country do not have access to money in just a flash. Is Soros funding all this?

  3. People applying for special entry to the US should have to file the paperwork at a US Embassy, then wait their turn like everyone else. Those who try to sneak in, or just show up at the border should be treated like any other illegal. Once they set foot on US soil the problem of getting rid of them increases exponentially. The best course of action, therefore, is to not let them across our borders in the first place.
