Germany: Syrian refugees turn murderous over the weekend

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 25, 2016

….and it will likely get worse as time goes on!

Invasion of Europe news…..

I’m sure you’ve seen the news over the last day or so, but am posting links for those who haven’t.

merkel-refugee-selfie

German Chancellor Angela Merkel with refugee. This ‘selfie’ should go down in political strategists’ training manuals as an example of what NOT to do with refugees from the Middle East.

First from Reuters (Syrian refugee kills a pregnant woman with a machete):

A 21-year-old Syrian refugee was arrested on Sunday after killing a pregnant woman with a machete in Germany, the fourth violent assault on civilians in western Europe in 10 days, though police said it did not appear linked to terrorism. [No terrorism, so move along!—ed]

The incident, however, may add to public unease surrounding Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door refugee policy that has seen over a million migrants enter Germany over the past year, many fleeing war in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq.

German police said they arrested the machete-wielding Syrian asylum-seeker after he killed a woman and injured two other people in the southwestern city of Reutlingen near Stuttgart.

Continue reading the discussion about Merkel’s open door policy and the political turmoil it is creating in Germany.

Then, over the same weekend, a Syrian suicide bomber explodes his backpack outside of a music event in a Bavarian town. From Russia Today:

Bavarian authorities have announced that the suspected suicide bomber, who was killed in the Ansbach explosion, was a 27-year-old Syrian whose asylum request was rejected last year. The motive behind the attack, which injured 12 people, remains unknown.

[….]

The attacker was a 27-year-old Syrian who had entered the country about two years ago, but was refused asylum, Bavarian authorities told a press conference. His application was rejected a year ago but the man was allowed to stay in Germany temporarily, due to ongoing hostilities in Syria.***

[….]

The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees will reveal why the suspect’s asylum application had previously been rejected later in the day Herrmann (Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann) noted that those who are “seeking protection in Germany, must show full respect for the German legal system and the German population.”

The minister added that the attack demonstrated the need “to strengthen controls on those we have living in our country”.

Following a press conference, Herrmann told Germany’s DPA, that he personally considers the bombing in Ansbach to have been the work of an Islamist suicide bomber.

“My personal opinion is that, unfortunately I think, it is very obvious that there has been a real Islamist suicide attack here,” Herrmann said early Monday.

Any bets on when Germany will get the big one—like in France or Belgium!

Go here for our archive extending back many years on the ‘Invasion of Europe.’

***By the way, this happens in the US too. If someone is denied asylum, but they come from a country in turmoil, we don’t deport them either!

George Soros and the European refugee crisis

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 12, 2016

I hate to use the word ‘refugee’ here because most of the migrants reaching Europe are economic migrants and not legitimate refugees, but who is quibbling over terms, certainly not George Soros.

Merkel and Soros 2

Interestingly, this story at the UK Express has Soros blaming Merkel for the refugee crisis and the consequent Brexit. They have overplayed their hands, pushed the people of Europe too far and now Soros dumps the blame on Merkel! Is that what is happening here? http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/684723/Angela-Merkel-open-door-policy-caused-Migrant-crisis-George-Soros-EU

Zerohedge (hat tip Julia) has posted a big expose (by Garret/Galland Investment Research) on the old man.  I know many of you are pretty familiar with his evil record, but it is worth noting that he is considered one of the drivers of the NO Borders movement and thus his fingerprints are all over the European invasion.

Here is just one section of the longer report as it relates to the crisis in Europe:

His Latest Success: the European Refugee Crisis

Soros’s agenda is fundamentally about the destruction of national borders. This has recently been shown very clearly with his funding of the European refugee crisis.

The refugee crisis has been blamed on the civil war currently raging in Syria. But did you ever wonder how all these people suddenly knew Europe would open its gates and let them in?

The refugee crisis is not a naturally occurring phenomenon. It coincided with OSF (Open Society Foundation) donating money to the US-based Migration Policy Institute*** and the Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants, both Soros-sponsored organizations. Both groups advocate the resettlement of third-world Muslims into Europe.

In 2015, a Sky News reporter found “Migrant Handbooks” on the Greek island of Lesbos. It was later revealed that the handbooks, which are written in Arabic, had been given to refugees before crossing the Mediterranean by a group called “Welcome to the EU.”

Welcome to the EU is funded by—you guessed it—the Open Society Foundations.

Soros has not only backed groups that advocate the resettlement of third-world migrants into Europe, he in fact is the architect of the “Merkel Plan.”

The Merkel Plan was created by the European Stability Initiative whose chairman Gerald Knaus is a senior fellow at none other than the Open Society Foundations.

The plan proposes that Germany should grant asylum to 500,000 Syrian refugees. It also states that Germany, along with other European nations, should agree to help Turkey, a country that’s 98% Muslim, gain visa-free travel within the EU starting in 2016.

More on Soros here.

Remember when it comes to refugees, follow the money!

If Syrians safely go home (to Syria!) today for EID, are they still legitimate refugees?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 5, 2016

The answer of course is NO!  Legitimate refugees are people escaping persecution of one sort or another. Economic migrants and even people staying out of war zones are NOT real refugees!

syrian border

If Syrians move back and forth across Turkish/Syrian borders, are they really persecuted refugees fearing for their lives?

I’ve been remiss in not reporting this fantastic essay by two former US asylum judges in which they define very carefully the definition of a refugee (or legitimate asylum seeker)—a definition that we believe has been intentionally perverted so that anyone in the world on-the-move is considered a refugee.

Serious students of the Refugee Admissions Program must read ‘Blurred lines: Migrant vs. Refugee’ by the Hon. Mahlon F. Hanson and Hon. Elizabeth A. Hacker posted last month at the Immigration Reform Law Institute. (Hat tip: Joanne)

Then ask yourselves, if Syrians “return home” to Syria for the holidays are they truly refugees? Or, are they economic migrants using the conflict as an excuse to move up in the world (at your expense!).

From TRT World:

Thousands of Syrian refugees in Turkey are returning home to Syria to mark the Islamic festival of Eid al Fitr which commences Tuesday.

Turkey temporarily relaxed controls at the Cilvegozu border crossing in its south-eastern province of Hatay last week, allowing Syrians with foreigner cards—those issued to refugees—to pass into northern Aleppo.

The border will remain open till 5pm local time on July 5, the start of the three-day holiday. Syrians returning to Turkey are obliged to do so before July 8 or face being barred from the country.

Turkey regularly opens the border to allow Syrians to return home for Eid holidays.

Why does the political Left and open borders aficionados on both the Left and Right want everyone to be a REFUGEE?

First because refugees are eligible for all sorts of welfare/services.  They  are free to work in the country in which they have landed, they can bring in the extended family, and they will ultimately become citizens of the countries in which the UN places them.  Why the political Right doesn’t see that they will ultimately vote the R’s (in America, in Europe the Right gets it) out of office is beyond me.  But, it seems that the Republican supporters of Open Borders see the dollar signs as the refugees are ready cheap labor for their big donors and the R’s get to wear the white hat of humanitarianism as an added bonus!

Of course there are surely larger forces than some on the American Right and Left driving the No Borders movement worldwide, but who or what is doing that is beyond my understanding!

A Chechen national “refugee” is believed to be ringleader of Turkish terror attack

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2016

And, get this!  Amnesty International had allegedly at one point stepped in to protect him from extradition to Russia.

chechen Ahmed Chataev

Chechens can look like the guy next door! Ahmed Chataev believed to be the ‘brains’ behind recent Istanbul terror attack.

So, indeed we have more evidence (if we needed it) that terrorists are hiding in the refugee stream to Europe and in this case to Austria!

Keep in mind that the US takes ‘refugees’ from Austria—in fact, according to State Department data, 1,339 supposed refugees traveled from Austria to your towns from October 1, 2015 to May 31, 2016.  Where are they now?

Here is the news from Eurasia Review:

Following Tuesday’s horrific attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport, which resulted in 44 death at the hands of three suicide bombers, Turkey was quick to blame the Islamic State for the terrorist act. And while that may be accurate, something surprising has emerged about the alleged ringleader of the group of three men who have been since identified as Russian, Uzbek and Kyrgyz nationals. As Russia’s Kommersant and Turkish media report, a Chechen national suspected of being the mastermind behind the deadly Istanbul airport terrorist attack, had previously received refugee status in Austria, which helped him to repeatedly avoid extradition to Russia on terror charges.

[….]

It has been also revealed that Chataev was long wanted by the Russian authorities for terrorism-related offenses but he fled to Europe, where he was granted asylum, and successfully managed to escape extradition to Russia.

[….]

In 2008, he was detained with some other Chechen nationals in the Swedish town of Trelleborg as police found Kalashnikov assault rifles, explosives and ammunition in his car. As a result, he spent more than a year in Swedish prison.

[….]

In 2010, Chataev was arrested in Ukraine with his mobile phone files containing a demolition technique instruction and photos of people killed in a blast. Russia requested his extradition on terrorism-related charges but the European Court for Human Rights ordered Ukraine not to hand him over to Russia with Amnesty International also urging Ukrainian authorities to halt extradition as Chataev “could face an unfair trial and would be at risk of torture and other ill-treatment.”

Just as in the Boston Bomber case, the Russians had the goods on an Islamic terrorist and the bleeding hearts in the west wouldn’t listen!

I heard this news on CNN this morning, but it has not been widely reported.

Breaking news! America wins, Obama loses!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 23, 2016

RoyCharts040314

Roy Beck

This is from Roy Beck just now at NumbersUSA! (hat tip: Brad)

Boston Globe headline captures it: ‘Supreme Court hands Obama crushing defeat on immigration’

The decision was handed down just a few minutes ago. I know that all of you are as thrilled — and relieved — as I am.

Here was my first statement to the national media:

“The ruling today is a win for American workers and the Constitution. The court’s decision means that immigration policy — including the power to issue work permits — still belongs to the people through their elected officials in Congress and that a president cannot unilaterally change that policy.

“U.S. citizens and legal immigrants in this country have been spared having to face direct job and wage competition from millions of illegal migrants for whom Pres. Obama had promised to open up every job in America.”

Several other federal court decisions have blocked Obama’s DAPA amnesty since just before it was to take effect a little more than a year ago.

The Supreme Court granted the Obama Administration a hearing on its insistence that the high court overturn the injunction that was preventing millions of illegal migrants from being granted work permits and other benefits.

A tie vote in the Supreme Court means that lower court rulings stand. So, this was a tremendous victory for all of us.

Keep in mind that the merits of the case by Texas and 25 other states against the DAPA amnesty have still not been ruled on by the lower courts which have merely issued a temporary injunction. But now, the country can breathe easier knowing that millions of illegal migrants are not legally competing for every U.S. job while the courts move forward on the merits.

Practically speaking, though, there is little chance that the case on the merits will be decided before Pres. Obama leaves office.

We will continue to provide you updates on this massively important issue, just as we have from the beginning.

Be prepared for big pro-amnesty demonstrations as Election 2016 approaches…

How do we know? Because last fall when we attended the Georgetown Law School pow-wow here, one of the leading NO Borders advocates in America, Marielena Hincapie, promised us as much should the Supreme Court rule against them!

Kentucky: One of two convicted Iraqi refugee terrorists wants his sentence reduced

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 19, 2016

We have so many new readers and I suspect many of you don’t even know that in 2011 two Iraqi refugees living in Bowling Green, KY (Rand Paul’s hometown) were arrested and ultimately convicted of working for al-Qaida in Iraq.  I think you can find most of our coverage of the case by typing ‘Kentucky Iraqi terrorists’ into our search window.

Hammadi

Mohanad Hammadi is serving a life sentence. ” Hammadi also admitted to lying on U.S. immigration paperwork about his involvement in Iraqi insurgent operations against American troops.”

However, for a quick review, see this report at ABC News of all places!

From the Bowling Green Daily News (hat tip: Robin):

LOUISVILLE — An Iraqi refugee and former Bowling Green resident serving a life sentence for federal terror-related offenses testified in federal court Tuesday morning that his former attorney assured him he would get a lesser sentence if he pleaded guilty.

Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, 28, has sought to have his sentence vacated on the grounds that his court-appointed lawyer, James Earhart, was ineffective.

Hammadi pleaded guilty in 2012 to all charges in a 12-count indictment that accused him of attempting, with fellow Iraqi refugee and Bowling Green resident Raad Alwan, to provide weapons, explosives, money and other resources to al-Qaida in Iraq on multiple occasions in 2011.

More here.

By the way, as a result of the arrest, the State Department held up Iraqi resettlement for months while Homeland Security rescreened thousands of other Iraqi refugees (or so they said!).

One of the most shocking pieces of information that came out of the investigation was that the fingerprints of one of the accused was found on IED fragments recovered in Iraq at the scene of the deaths of American National Guard troops from Pennsylvania.

The pair had lied to get into the US Refugee Program.

The next time someone tells you there have been no Islamic terrorists in the refugee flow to America, and that we screen them so well, remember these two!

Endnote:  A ‘pocket of resistance’ is forming in Bowling Green, see here.

Syrian ‘refugees’ going home, thought they were going to be cared for in Europe

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 13, 2016

But, the problem now is how to make the reverse trek back to Turkey and ultimately home to Syria.

Invasion of Europe news…

El Dorado

They did not find El Dorado and now want to go home to Syria!

When I saw this story I was reminded of a story we reported in August of 2015 where a Syrian born woman said that Syrians are not “refugees” but opportunists.  You might want to read it (here), before this latest news.

This is what she said:

They left homes and cars and possessions here in order to take up the offer of FREE money and housing in Europe. They had been sure that once in Europe they will be given free medical, education, housing, food and provided for in every way forever. They think of Europe as “El Dorado”. There is also a large dose of jealousy involved, as they saw their neighbors going and they didn’t want to be left behind. Syrian hate to see someone else get a good deal, and not get a piece of the pie themselves.

Now here is the news from AP at One News Now:

…dozens of Syrian refugees are risking their lives again but in the opposite direction — paying smugglers to take them back to Turkey, and heading home.

Rather than brave the often treacherous waves of the Aegean again, they face the dangerous currents of the Evros River, which runs along the Greek-Turkish border.

Each night, groups of migrants and refugees huddle at the railway station of the small border town of Didimoticho, about 3 kilometers from the frontier, setting up small tents and waiting for their chance to cross.

Stuck in Greece…..

Al Jassem and his family stayed for months in Idomeni, a sprawling impromptu refugee camp that sprang up on the Greek-Macedonian border.

Authorities evacuated the camp last month, and the family were moved to an official camp with thousands of others.
But months of living rough had sapped their morale and their resolve.

They gave up the dream of a life in Germany.

“We did not expect we were going to be treated as such in Europe,” said Al Jassem.

“We thought they will be humane, looking after us and after our children, protect our children. We though we will be helped, but we found the opposite. Europe has no feeling for us at all.”

Continue reading here.

We also told you earlier this month about Syrians who made it to Germany and now want out!

It is really quite shameful that the UN and the IOM can’t figure out how to safely return these people to their homeland and are thus leaving them in the hands of smugglers.

Our complete archive on the ‘Invasion of Europe’ is here.

How many Syrians forced to work in American meatpacking plants or in hotels cleaning bathrooms are going to want to go home too a year from now? 

Set up that repatriation fund, it will be cheaper than keeping them on welfare!

Minnesota: Somali youths found guilty in plotting to join ISIS; Jamal says “all-white jury” handed down verdict

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 9, 2016

There is so much new news that needs to be reported and discussed that writing once again about Somali (Minnesota-raised) youths, who have been found guilty of supporting ISIS after about 40 other Minnesota-raised Somali former refugees have gone to join the jihadists, is annoying.

Omar Jamal MPR

Omar Jamal (Somali community organizer) suggests all-white jury might not have been impartial. Photo: http://www.mprnews.org/story/2009/04/24/omar_jamal

As a matter of fact, there are three issues that I’ve been writing about for about EIGHT years that annoy me to have to continue to write about! One of the three is what I reported last night—we are taking illegal aliens from Malta and spending at least $20,000 a pop for starters to resettle them in your towns.

Another EIGHT-year-old story is about how we eight years ago did NOT take Rohingya Muslims from Burma to the US (because of their links to radical groups in Bangladesh, Burma and Thailand), but now we take in thousands!  (See our huge archive on the Rohingya by clicking here, do you want to write a book?).

And, the third storyline I am sick to death of is this one—poor Somali kids with no future in Minneapolis who are mysteriously radicalized and give a middle finger to you (the taxpayer) and head out to join the Islamic killers elsewhere in the world (I don’t know why we even try to stop them).

This latest bunch will now cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep them behind bars—JUST LET THEM GO TO ISIS!

Here comes Jamal!

Then to top off my annoyance this morning—that I’m writing probably the hundredth post on these “kids”—I’m seeing that Omar Jamal has still not gone away!

You can read the whole conviction story yourself here at Twin Cities Pioneer Press.

But, who should appear speaking for the Somali “community”—none other than the Somali Jesse Jackson himself, Omar Jamal!

Twin Cities Pioneer Press:

Outside the courtroom, Omar Jamal, a Somali community activist, worried that the Somali community would find little solace or justice in guilty verdicts handed down by an all-white jury that was shown violent Islamic State propaganda videos.

“This decision will reinforce the perception in the community that the system is rigged,” Jamal said.

Damn we have been writing about the man convicted of immigration fraud for EIGHT years.

Although we had noticed him before, he made a big splash on the scene in Denver when just a short time before the 2008 Democrat convention a Somali man from Canada was found dead in a Denver hotel (near the convention site) with enough cyanide to kill hundreds. Jamal shows up and persuades authorities (or at least tells the media) to move along, nothing to see, just a crazy guy from Canada.

If you have the time and patience, follow Jamal’s ‘career’ here at RRW.   See his arrest in Minnesota in 2003 on immigration violations (he was an illegal alien!).   See here in 2009 where Minnesota Public Radio outed him (to some degree).  So why was he never deported? Does he work for the feds?

But, it seems that lazy reporters continue to call upon him for his comments every time a Somali does something bad almost anywhere in America!

Then get this, the Minneapolis Star Tribune published his mealy-mouthed op-ed yesterday in which he says that US policies in the war on terror will drive more of the little confused darlings*** to join the jihad. He said:

In fact, I am afraid that if aggressive, heavy-handed policies continue unchecked in the war on terror, this recent trial will be a Trojan horse to further recruit more kids to ISIL.

Why does anyone give this man any ink when he should be in jail or deported himself!

Where are you Jared?  How about a story on Jamal? He is right there in your hometown!

***These are the “kids” you “welcomed” to America, paid for their housing and food, their educations.  You kept them healthy enough to grow up even (to become Islamic soldiers), and what do you get?  They hate you and they hate America. I suggest we make it easy (and cheaper for us), ask them if they want to go to the Middle East or back to Somalia and pay their airfare (and take away their passports when they board that plane!).  What is that expression our Mom’s used: “Good riddance to bad rubbish!”

Insanity! US took 500 illegal aliens off Malta’s hands in one year

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 8, 2016

This invasion of Europe story leads to the invasion of America!

The story makes me sick.  I have been writing about it for EIGHT years.  George Bush started it and of course Obama continued this abrogation of international refugee law. 

Here is one of the earliest posts I wrote (from 2008) about Bush’s Ambassador to Malta who first broke the law!

 

refugees on Malta

Illegal aliens who arrive on Malta could hit the jackpot and get a ticket to America!

 

In just one recent year, 500 ILLEGAL aliens made their way from North Africa across the Mediterranean to the island nation of Malta. Then, to help Malta out, our US State Department said ‘presto-chango’ and these ECONOMIC migrants who had launched from lawless Libya and elsewhere in North Africa magically became refugees and they now live in your towns in America somewhere!  And, this has been going on for eight years!

Legitimate claims for asylum are supposed to be made in the first safe country where the LEGITIMATE refugee lands—in this case Malta (making them Europe’s problem).  Are we asking Europe to take some of our illegal alien Mexicans? Of course not!

Do you understand the full import of what this means—any of the phony asylum seekers reaching Europe could be simply moved to America now that the precedent has been set.

From the Independent:

Some 500 immigrants who arrived in Malta in search for a better life have been resettled in the United States of America between March 2015 and March 2016. This information emerged in a reply to a Parliamentary Question. Minister for Home Affairs Carmelo Abela explained that 355 out of the 503 were Somali, 138 came from Eritrea, 17 from Sudan, two from Ethiopia and one from Iraq.

The resettlement exercise was possible following an agreement between the Maltese authorities, the American government and UNHCR.

You know it makes me so mad when I know that Congress, if it had the will, could do so much to reform this program with a few simple fixes that could make it safer and not so insane until real reform could begin.  Simply disallowing this lawbreaking would be a good start!

Click here for more on Malta. I’ve never counted them, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see 50 posts here on just our policy relating to the island nation.

Alabama county eyed for federal camp to house unaccompanied alien children

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 8, 2016

According to reports from very angry elected officials in Baldwin County, Alabama, there is nothing on the federal land but airstrips for practice landings and takeoffs and a hayfield at the moment. Construction of housing, including sewer and water, will be very costly.

But apparently the Obama Administration is in the process of determining if the Dept. of Defense sites in Alabama would be good ones to “temporarily” house some of the tens of thousands of so-called ‘unaccompanied alien children’ streaming across the US border at the moment.

Alabama naval fields

Why do they care if the ‘children’ are near an airfield? I wondered if ‘refugee’ camps like this proposed location might be built and later used to airlift larger numbers of Syrians and Middle Easterners/Africans to the US. Seems like its an awfully expensive plan for a “temporary” facility.

I suspect that considering a site in Alabama is probably because the Obama Administration wants to take a whack at Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, the most important Senator in America questioning Obama’s opening our doors to illegals of all sorts (this article uses the word “refugee” in the title, these are not refugees!), and the fact that Sessions is a chief adviser to the Donald Trump campaign.

Forget Alabama for a minute and consider the import of this story—they are anticipating another summer invasion of the US border, perhaps larger than the invasion of 2014 as a Trump Presidency looms on the horizon.

And, could this involve the creation of a ‘refugee camp’ for future use?

Keep your eyes pealed on your county!

From the Lagniappe Weekly:

A plan from the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) to assess the feasibility of housing unaccompanied illegal immigrant children at two airfields in Baldwin County is being met with hostility by elected officials at the federal and local levels because of concerns about the lack of infrastructure at the sites and the plan’s potential impact on the county.

ORR, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, notified officials of the assessments in a letter last week. In the letter Rose Hacking, an HHS representative, said ORR is trying to identify locations to provide shelter for potential increases in unaccompanied children apprehended at the Mexican border.

The letter notified officials HHS would soon schedule site assessments at the Naval Outlying Fields in Silverhill and Josephine to determine the feasibility of using the sites as semipermanent shelters if HHS exceeds its current shelter capacity.

[….]

According to Hacking’s letter HHS currently has 8,700 beds in its “shelter network” and an additional 2,000 beds on reserve if needed. Some reserve beds are already available at the Homestead Job Corps Center in Homestead, Florida, and the semipermanent structures would be used only if the department were to experience a “substantial” increase in unaccompanied children.

Andrea Helling, ORR chief of staff, said the temporary shelters are typically used for roughly 30 days while the unaccompanied children are evaluated in the court system. She stressed none of the children who may come to Baldwin County sites would impact the county school system or the local health care system.

Tucker Dorsey

Baldwin County Commission President Tucker Dorsey. http://tuckerdorsey.com/about/

[….]

According to Helling, the assessors will inspect the sites to determine the ease of installing temporary infrastructure and buildings. They also consider each sites’ proximity to airports and the amount of land available for construction.

Baldwin County Commission President Tucker Dorsey said county officials have not been told how many children may be moved to the site in the event it is used.

“Forget the fact that these would be children who are in the country illegally and the federal government doesn’t properly enforce immigration law,” Dorsey said. “Apart from that, this would be a logistical nightmare for us and them.”

Dorsey said while both sites are large, the federal government would have to install infrastructure and construct buildings at a great cost because the sites currently amount to nothing more than large fields with landing strips.

There is much more, continue reading here.

Some things you should know!

The Office of Refugee Resettlement is shelling out nearly $1 billion this year (FY2016) to take care of the children.

And, the ‘children’ who arrived in FY2015 are 82% teenagers and 68% of the total are boys.  See here.
