They heard they would have to work in America!
This is another in my ever-expanding archive about that Obama “dumb deal” (honored by President Trump) to take 1,250 of Australia’s detained illegal aliens to the US as refugees.
Readers need to know that this whole scheme is outside the normal internationally understood process for dealing with asylum seekers and economic migrants. Simply put:
Australia’s illegal aliens are not our problem!
Do we expect Australia to take some of those crossing our borders illegally now—of course not. It would never happen.
Several hundred of the mostly single Muslim men have already been quietly placed in your towns and cities. See here.
Thanks to reader ‘Father Jon‘ for alerting us to this jaw-dropping bit of news.
From the UK Daily Mail:
A total of 71 asylum seekers on Nauru have turned down the chance to move to the US after discovering they would need to work and wouldn’t get free welfare.
Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton claimed those who who rejected the move were not ‘genuine’ refugees.
Mr Dutton claimed their reluctance to take up the opportunity proved they were simply economic migrants trying to take advantage of generous welfare systems.
He told The Daily Telegraph: ‘People who have refused to take a place in the US are not genuine.
‘Millions of refugees have gone to the US and may have died trying because it’s one of the greatest countries in the world.
‘Reports have come back to people on Nauru it’s all a bit financially tight there because you have to get a job and there’s no welfare there.’
But, don’t anyone tell them that they do get welfare here as well!
