India for Indians: Rohingya Muslim deportations begin, angering UN

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 7, 2018

Just a quick mention so that you know that one advanced country after another is tightening borders and getting its illegal migrants sent home.  We reported on Denmark yesterday, here.  Heartburn at the UN?

Here is the Washington Post, but a similar story can be found at many media outlets:

India deports Rohingya Muslims, drawing U.N. ire

NEW DELHI — India deported seven Rohingya Muslims who had fled their native Myanmar back to their country Thursday, sparking concerns that the move could endanger their lives and violate international laws that protect refugees.

The move comes as India’s ruling Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party has escalated its rhetorical attacks on migrants who have entered the country illegally.

The party’s powerful president, Amit Shah, has repeatedly promised to deport all such migrants, and portrayed them as a security threat. At a public rally in September, he likened them to “termites.”

The northeastern state of Assam, where the seven men were imprisoned since 2012, has been ramping up efforts to identify and deport immigrants who are in the country illegally.

“If someone enters the country illegally, we will send them back,” Bharat Bhushan Babu, spokesman for India’s Home Affairs Ministry, said. When asked if that included people fleeing violence in their native countries, he said, “This is applicable to everyone.”

An additional 40,000 Rohingya refugees are thought to be in India, although only 18,000 are registered with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Many of India’s Rohingya refugees came before the most recent wave of violence in 2017. A statement from the UNHCR said the seven men deported Thursday were not registered with the agency.

Rohingya to the USA!

No Muslim ban….

Just so you know, Rohingya Muslims are being resettled in the US by the Trump Administration, see here.  In June, Rohingya were the top ethnic group of Muslims we were admitting.

    Just wondering, who or “what” does the islamic-run UN think it is????
    Since the islamic-run UN is run by islam, then the islamic-run UN should be deported to an islamic country.

    I have always said that in this country now just a land mass there shall be many different kinds of civil wars. There shall be wars of homosexuals vs. heterosexuals, young vs. old, conservatives vs. communists, religions of every kind vs. religions of every kind, rich vs. poor, etc…THIS COUNTRY IS NOT GOING TO HAVE ONE KIND OF CIVIL WAR, IT IS DESTINE FOR MANY. PUT NOT YOUR FAITH IN GOVERNMENT, ONLY TRUST IN OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND CREATOR YAHVEH. IF ANYONE DOES NOT APPROVE OR LOVE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, THEY NEED TO GET THE HELL OUT, EVEN IF THEY WERE BORN HERE!!!
