Rohingya Muslims arriving in Malaysia in large numbers, how many are headed to the US?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 19, 2015

This is a story I never got around to last week (traveling), but wanted to be sure you see it and understand that….

….we are probably taking some of the illegal migrants that arrive in Malaysia as ‘refugees’ to your towns and cities.

Rohingya in Malaysia. Are they getting in line for America? (European Pressphoto Agency)

We haven’t written much about the Rohingya issue in Burma and Bangladesh lately, however we followed it for years because initially the US State Department was not accepting as refugees Rohingya Muslims (at one point some of their Islamic groups were actually on a State Dept. list of potential terrorist groups).

They are now being resettled in the US among the tens of thousands of Christian Burmese people we have brought in over the last ten years.

US Conference of Catholic Bishops:  we want some Rohingya to resettle!

One of my big surprises occurred when I attended a State Department “scoping meeting” and heard the US Conference of Catholic Bishops representative tell the State Department we needed to bring in more Rohingya Muslims, here in 2013.   By the way, here is a pretty good summary post if you would like more background on the Rohingya problem.  For ambitious readers! see that we have written 175 posts archived in our Rohingya Reports category.

Also, readers may want to review our posts on Esar Met, a Burmese Muslim convicted of raping and murdering a Christian girl in Utah shortly after his arrival in the US.  Met and the girl had lived in separate parts of the same UN refugee camp in Thailand because Muslims and Christians are not housed together.  In America they were put in the same apartment complex most likely by one of the resettlement contractors working in Salt Lake City.  Here is one of many posts on the murder case.

Here is the AP story at the Los Angeles Times that I wanted you to see.  Rohingya are on the move.

Brave Burmese monks (2013) protest the Organization of Islamic Cooperation attempts to get a foothold in Burma (aka Myanmar) in order to demand Rohingya rights.

 About 1,600 Rohingya and Bangladeshi refugees have landed illegally in Malaysia and Indonesia in the last two days, apparently after human traffickers abandoned their virtual prison ships and left them to fend for themselves, officials said Monday.

One group of about 600 people arrived in the Indonesian coastal province of Aceh on four boats on Sunday, and at about the same time a total of 1,018 landed in three boats on the northern resort island of Langkawi.

How many Burmese refugees are we taking?

The mostly Christian Burmese are one of the largest (if not the largest) ethnic group of refugees we have resettled since 2005 (I checked the data from January 2005 until May 1, 2015).

This is what I learned:  We resettled 140,812 Burmese refugees since 2005.***

This surprised me:  In that number were 12,615 Burmese Muslims!  The word Rohingya is not used, but most certainly the Rohingya represent a large portion (if not all) of that number.

We process (into the US) large numbers of supposed refugees in Malaysia!  Who are they?

In the first seven months of FY 2015 (from Oct. 1, 2014-April 30, 2015) we actually admitted 5,727 “refugees” from Malaysia (see processing country data here). Who are they, and why are we admitting them?

If these Rohingya make it to Malaysia they are supposed to apply for asylum in that safe Muslim country.

Malaysia should not be simply a way-station on the road to the West.

I hope that we are not doing what we are doing illegally in Malta and that is bringing some of Malta’s illegal alien boat people to America!

***Addendum:  I went back to data bases to see how many Burmese refugees we admitted in this fiscal year (from Oct. 1, 2014 until May 1, 2015).  That is seven months.  We admitted 9,040 Burmese and 1,649 of those are Muslims (about 18%).  If they continue at that pace this will be the top year for the entry of Burmese Muslims into the US.

Communist icon Angela Davis: “The refugee movement is THE movement of the 21st century”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 19, 2015

That’s what we learn at OccupyMN’s facebook page thanks to reader Joanne.

“Davis was arrested, charged, tried, and acquitted of conspiracy in the 1970 armed take-over of a Marin County courtroom, in which four persons died.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela_Davis

 

Former Communist Party USA President Angela Davis (didn’t you think she might be dead by now) is interviewed in Germany with African asylum seekers demanding their rights.

Trying to stay relevant?

You can watch her here as she gives community organizing tips to the Africans.

For our many new readers we try to write as often as possible about the ‘Invasion of Europe’ because Western Civilization is being undermined there daily with the arrival of the boat migrants from North Africa and the complete lack of will by most European leaders to do what they must do—stop the boats before they launch from Libya and other hell holes in Africa and the Middle East.

The United States won’t be far behind Europe if we don’t get our LEGAL and illegal immigration under control soon!

One commenter to the facebook page says, “Don’t abandon prison reform for the more glamorous refugee situation. Prison reform is vital.”

Everyone is abuzz about the DHS bus carrying Somalis looking for asylum in the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2015

Surely you’ve seen the news by now (it is all over the internet) about the DHS bus in California carrying Somalis and other Africans apprehended at our southern border and now asking for asylum.

The story, that began as a video clip making the rounds of social media is fleshed out further here at World Net Daily.   Luckily broadcaster Anita Fuentes of ‘Open your eyes people,’ was there to ask questions of the driver and to film the bus.

Go to World Net Daily for the full story and more about Somalis and asylum in the US.

For new readers, once an alien is granted asylum they may receive all of the social service benefits that a normal refugee gets, and they may get care from one of the federal resettlement contractors.

Asha Omar (19) granted asylum in El Paso, Texas in 2010, tells the improbable tale that she “made her way” by herself to America with a stop in Cuba before reaching the Mexican border. http://www.lcsun-news.com/las_cruces-news/ci_17039428

This is not news to us!

We have been telling readers for years about the Somali trail from Africa to our southern border and a claim of asylum.

In 2011, we urged Congress to investigate the strange phenomenon of a supposedly impoverished young Somali traveling sometimes from Somalia to Syria to Russia to Cuba and then to Central America or Mexico and making it to the US border where a claim for asylum would be made with the help of immigration lawyers who seemed to be expecting them!

It is not just in the Mediterranean region where an invasion is occurring!

Here is the 2011 post in which I urged Congress to investigate this strange business:

Is there a conspiracy by NGO’s to bring asylum seekers to US borders?

Here is an earlier post (2009) about Africans getting to South America on their way to the US southern border:

African asylum seekers reaching South America, hope to get to the US

And, here is a more recent post on the same subject:

Six Somalis headed to US arrested in Mexico

There are more posts on the same subject here at RRW, but no time to search for them right now.

I once saw a fantastic travel map for Somalis who ‘made their way’ to Russia and then flew to Cuba from there.  Next stop was Mexico and the US border (wish I could find it to show you!).

Does no one ever ask?  Who is helping these ‘youths’ and who is paying for it all?   I’ve seen estimates that such a travel plan costs upwards of $10,000.

ISIS making millions trafficking ‘refugees’ to Europe from Libya

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2015

Obama and his girls (Hillary, Susan Rice and Samantha Power) sure blundered when they joined the pack to bring down Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

I wonder if the media will one day point a finger at this bunch for destabilizing North Africa just as they do now at George W. Bush for bringing down Saddam Hussein and destabilizing Iraq (I won’t hold my breath).

Here Time magazine reports that trafficking in migrants is part of the new business model used by ISIS to fund their operations.

Migrants pay thousands of dollars to armed groups in Africa and the Middle East on their journey to Europe.

Illegal migrants wait to be rescued off Malta earlier this month.

The movement of migrants across the Middle East and Africa towards Europe has generated up to $323 million for the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) and other jihadist groups, a new report has revealed.

Many of the migrants embark from Libya on unseaworthy boats which have foundered with thousands drowning and thousands being rescued by European navies. At least 170,000 refugees made the sea journey last year, and that number looks likely to increase this year, according to the European Union’s border-surveillance organization Frontex.

European Union and African officials are scrambling to find ways to stop the migration. On Wednesday the Guardian revealed a 19-page E.U. strategy report to crack down on the smugglers, which included air strikes on boats and possibly the use of troops in Libya.

But while E.U. officials anguish over the plight of people crossing the Mediterranean to get to Europe, the migration has proved an invaluable business opportunity for groups like ISIS. So valuable that international crime experts believe ISIS might have launched some attacks specifically in order to drive people to flee, and then profit from their flight.

Read more here.

Just a reminder!  US readers this affects you!

We are bringing some of those illegal boat people to America as REFUGEES and sending them to your towns and cities.   I just checked State Department data bases and see that as of April 30th we had admitted 331 of Malta’s illegal aliens to the US in 300 refugee cases this fiscal year alone.  That means that the majority coming to America are not in family groups and are most likely single young men.

We told you here that some aliens from Malta ended up in South Carolina.

Small EU countries: Don’t shove migrants down our throats…..

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 11, 2015

…..when you ‘welcomed’ them to Europe’s shores in the first place!

More ‘Invasion of Europe’ news…..

 

Europe here we come! Migrants rescued off Italy. Don’t they look like an invading army? http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/mediterranean-migrant-crisis-baby-girl-born-italian-navy-ship-nearly-7000-rescued-one-weekend-1499691

 

The European Union is attempting to force a quota system on all EU countries demanding that everyone take a share of the tens of thousands of mostly African and Middle Eastern migrants flowing in to border countries like Italy, Malta and Greece.

Some countries are having none of it!

From the Associated Press via Yahoo.news:

BRUSSELS (AP) — European Union plans to introduce a quota system obliging countries to share the burden of settling refugees unraveled Friday as member nations began rejecting the scheme.

Hungary, Slovakia and Estonia are among those to publicly object to a quota system, which would require unanimous agreement among the 28 EU nations.

Hold on a minute! Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says its “crazy” that you let them in and now we (who didn’t want them let in) are expected to take them!

“This is not solidarity. It is an unfair, unrighteous and dishonorable proposal which we cannot accept,” Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on state radio. “It is a crazy idea for someone to let refugees into their own country, not defend their borders, and then say: ‘Now I will distribute them among you, who did not want to let anyone in.'”

In a statement to The Associated Press, Slovakia’s interior ministry said that it “currently refuses binding quotas on migrants.” Estonia said it prefers voluntary relocation and resettlement for refugees.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel acknowledged that it will be “hard work” to put a quota system in place but said there was “a large group of countries” in favor. Merkel said she was “convinced that we will not be able to do without a solution in solidarity in Europe.”

Germany, along with Sweden and France, is among a handful of countries accepting refugees. [Really dumb!—ed]

The EU’s executive Commission was to propose the plan next Wednesday as part of a strategy to help frontline countries Italy, Greece and Malta cope with thousands of migrants.

There is only one solution to stop the invasion—-turn the boats back to the North African coast as Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott recommends, here.

UNHCR blasts Hungary for consulting its citizens about illegal migrants entering the country

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 9, 2015

More ‘Invasion of Europe’ news…..

Wouldn’t it be fantastic if the US government sent out a questionnaire to ask us how we felt about admitting (and keeping) asylum seekers, economic migrants, and unaccompanied alien children who enter the US illegally!  Apparently that is what the government of Hungary has done and the move, to CONSULT its citizens, has the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in a tizzy.

Update:  Here is Reuters on this news.

From UNHCR News:

08 May 2015, BUDAPEST (UNHCR) – The UN Refugee Agency on Friday spoke out against a growing expression of xenophobia in Hungary. It raised concerns over efforts by the Hungarian government to paint refugees as a threat to the country in leading questions being asked during a so-called national consultation.

UNHCR

UNHCR Antonio Guterres to the Hungarian government: We don’t like the tone of your questionnaire!

“We are deeply concerned by the way the government increasingly vilifies people who have fled from war zones like Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq and who desperately need safety and protection in Hungary,” said Montserrat Feixas Vihé, UNHCR Regional Representative for Central Europe based in Budapest.

While UNHCR respects the right of every country to consult its citizens in any way it chooses, the refugee agency is concerned about the wording of a questionnaire that is being sent to eight million Hungarians over the age of 18 in a process announced in late April. UNHCR believes the questions intentionally attempt to confuse refugees and asylum-seekers with so-called “economic migrants” and wrongly blame refugees for a number of purported threats to Hungary and Europe.

For example, question nine of the national consultation suggests that Hungary should be allowed to return people to their countries immediately if they entered Hungary irregularly. It is very important to remember that among the people who enter Hungary – in whatever manner — are refugees whose lives are in danger in their own countries.

Remember readers, the United Nations would love to see the borders of the world dissolved!  Or, at least that is what their actions point to.

UK Home Secretary Theresa May defies EU demand to open Britain to more migrants

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 6, 2015

Europe is sinking under the weight of tens of thousands of migrants (illegal aliens) crossing the Mediterranean Sea and expecting to be granted asylum in Europe.  Great Britain is a plum designation for many.

As we noted previously, the only way to stem the invader tide is to stop the boats before they launch from the North African coast, and here May says the same thing.

Will this tough policy stand if “Red Ed” becomes prime minister in UK elections tomorrow?

(See what we said last month about “Red Ed” and his brother David Miliband helping to destroy the UK with immigration.)

From the Daily Mail:

Theresa May has rejected demands from Brussels for Britain to take a ‘quota’ of the migrants pouring into Europe across the Mediterranean.

Home Secretary May: these are not refugees, they have paid human traffickers to get them to Europe.

The Royal Navy yesterday finally joined the rescue operation by deploying a warship and three helicopters to help save people making the perilous journey to Italy.

But the Home Secretary told the Mail any decision to accept migrants should be on a voluntary basis rather than one ordered by the EU.

[….]

Mrs May disputed the idea that all the migrants were refugees fleeing conflict zones, arguing instead that many had paid criminal syndicates.

[….]

Jean-Claude Juncker, who heads the European Commission, has suggested that unless Europe’s leaders decide to ‘open the door’, the migrants could try to ‘break in through the window’.  [So the solution is to just open the door to one and all?—ed]

Brussels is arguing that, in view of the mass drownings, every country should take a fixed share of migrants. But, following Mr Juncker’s demand, Mrs May told the Mail last Thursday: ‘Any decisions should be on a voluntary basis. Often, the issue is perceived as being people who are refugees from Syria.

‘Those coming across the Med – they are coming from countries such as Senegal, Eritrea, Sudan.

‘Many will have paid organised crime groups to get them through. It is a different sort of issue from Syrian refugees.

‘If we are really going to stop the people putting their lives in danger by crossing the Med, we need to stop them starting their journey in the first place.’

Europe must follow Australian model (turn back the boats) or die!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 4, 2015

It is so clear to anyone with a brain, that the only way to stop the ‘Invasion of Europe’ from North Africa is to stop the boats before they even launch from Libya and other ports in North Africa.

Where is America’s Tony Abbott?

The UNHCR could then care for the so-called asylum seekers in camps in Africa.

But, the European Union is saying NO WAY!  So, I guess they will all go down as the European ship sinks!

From the Malta Independent:

The European Union will not be adopting Australia’s migration methods despite Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s claim that some Europeans are seeking policy advice.

The EU’s executive Commission says Canberra does not respect the international standard on protecting refugees of “non-refoulement,” which is a U.N. principle prohibiting expulsion to a country where they could face violence or prison.

Commission migration spokeswoman Natasha Bertaud said Monday that the EU “applies the principle of non-refoulement — we have no intention of changing this — so of course the Australian model can never be a model for us.”

Australia’s migration model was widely cited in debate at the European Parliament last week, as the EU struggles to cope with thousands of migrants seeking to enter Europe via Libya.

Read it all here.

See our ‘Invasion of Europe‘ series here, and check out how Australia is saving migrants’ lives (and discouraging more illegal migration) by turning boats back to the countries from which they launched (Australia category, here).

And, remember American readers, this is about you too as we are taking some of Malta’s illegal aliens and dropping them into your towns (most recently South Carolina, here).

That practice was begun, illegally I contend, by the Bush Administration.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott: the only way to save lives in the Mediterranean is to STOP THE BOATS

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 21, 2015

I figured I didn’t need to say much about the latest drowning deaths in the Mediterranean since for once the mainstream media seems to have noticed.

In July 2013 the Pope went to Lampedusa to great the invaders from North Africa and the Middle East. And, lectured Italians to be more welcoming. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2013/07/09/pope-lectures-on-lampedusa/

We have been writing about the ‘Invasion of Europe’ for what seems like years!

It goes on and on and European leaders don’t seem to get it.

The only way to save lives is to turn the boats back to the North African coast, and then let the UNHCR build some camps in Libya to house them and guard them.

It is either that or lose Europe completely as all of Africa and the Middle East want in!

And, by the way, this writer has no sympathy for the Pope (saying prayers as the news broke) since he helped encourage the invasion when he went to the Italian island of Lampedusa nearly two years ago and “welcomed” the invaders!

So here is the latest news from The Guardian about the sinking of yet one migrant vessel.

Italian police have arrested two suspected people traffickers among the survivors of the migrant boat that capsized on Sunday, as the United Nations confirmed that at least 800 people died in the sinking off the coast of Libya.

Prosecutors said they had detained a Tunisian man believed to be the captain of the vessel and a Syrian allegedly a member of the ship’s crew, taken from a group of 27 haggard survivors who arrived in the Sicilian port of Catania on Monday evening.

The two were charged with people trafficking and the captain was also charged with reckless multiple homicide in relation to the sinking.

The arrests came after an emergency meeting of EU interior and foreign ministers in Luxembourg on Monday made a decision to launch military operations against the networks of smugglers in Libya, as well as to bolster maritime patrols in the Mediterranean and give their modest naval mission a broader search-and-rescue mandate for saving lives.

Tony Abbott: Stop the boats!

The Guardian tells us the average age of the migrants was 25-years-old.  And male!  Sounds like an army to me!

Flavio Di Giacomo, spokesperson for IOM Italy, said those on board had come from Gambia, Ivory coast, Somalia, Eritrea, Mali, Tunisia, Sierra Leone, Bangladesh and Syria. Reports said all those on board were male, several of them unaccompanied children.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has the only solution if the European Union wants to save lives AND save Europe. 

You will find this near the end of The Guardian’s story.  LOL! I think they call this burying the lead!

Australia’s prime minister has urged European leaders to adopt tougher border control measures. Tony Abbott, whose government implemented a strict policy of turning back asylum seekers’ boats in a bid to discourage them from trying to reach Australia, called the latest Mediterranean crisis a “terrible, terrible tragedy” and suggested Europe follow Australia’s lead to ensure it was not repeated.

“The only way you can stop the deaths is to stop the people smuggling trade. The only way you can stop the deaths is, in fact, to stop the boats,” Abbott told reporters in the nation’s capital, Canberra. “That’s why it is so urgent that the countries of Europe adopt very strong policies that will end the people smuggling trade across the Mediterranean.”

Malta ‘invasion of Europe’ news: More die crossing Mediterranean, UN says EU must rescue them

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 16, 2015

But, how about using the Australian model (which is saving lives) and turning the boats back to Libya and other launching points in North Africa?  It is the only option to save Europe!

Our correspondent in Malta is reporting that this latest wave of migrants is (according to Italian press) being herded on to boats in failed states (Libya! Thanks Hillary!) without even having to pay traffickers.  In other words, it is a deliberate plan to push invaders to Europe, something ISIS is promising to do!

From Malta Today:

Rescuing the invaders. Malta Today photo: MOAS/Darrin Zammit Lupi

With a new and large-scale boat tragedy reported on the Mediterranean, UNHCR has appealed afresh to governments across the region to prioritize the saving of lives, including by urgently expanding and upgrading search and rescue capacities.

The latest incident involves the capsizing of a double-deck boat on Monday in waters about 120 kilometres south of Lampedusa. 142 people were rescued and eight bodies recovered.

But some 400 others said by survivors to have been aboard are feared lost.

“I was deeply shocked when hearing the news that another boat, an overcrowded boat capsized in the Mediterranean and where four hundred people died. This only demonstrates how important it is to have a robust rescue-at-sea mechanism in the central Mediterranean,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres said.

[….]

So far in 2015, some 31,500 people are known to have made crossings to Italy and Greece – the first and second largest countries of arrival respectively. And numbers have recently been picking up further. According to the Italian Coast Guard more than 8,500 people have been rescued from several dozen boats and rubber dinghies since 10 April. If the 400 deaths are confirmed from the latest incident the death toll so far this year will have reached 900.

Amnesty International said that all indications point to a continued rise in the number of migrants and refugees making this trip as the weather improves, violence and persecution continue in countries like Syria and Eritrea, and instability persists in Libya, the launching point for the majority of the people-smuggling voyages across the Mediterranean.

See our ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive here.

Americans this affects you!

US readers, pay attention to Malta since some of those same illegal migrants rescued by the Maltese navy are being sent to your towns in America

This week we learned that some went to South Carolina!

Update:  NGOs want safe and legal access to Europe for all! Here!
