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.

marc-p-attorney

Minnesota Immigration lawyer, Marc Prokosch: We previously didn’t deport failed Somali asylum seekers, we left them alone (to live in your towns and cities!). Photo here: http://www.karamlaw.com/teams/marc-prokosch/

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.

On refugee numbers permitted entry, Trump is on firm ground, he can stop resettlement now for this fiscal year

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 6, 2017

…..And, in September he can set the number for FY2018 at zero!

Just a reminder, the Refugee Act of 1980 gave the President great latitude in setting over all refugee numbers for a 12 month period.

In September, for Fiscal year 2017, Obama set the cap (ceiling) for this year at 110,000 (way higher than normal).

ted-and-joe

Senators Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden were behind the bill that became the Refugee Act of 1980 signed in to law by Jimmy Carter. In over 3 decades Congress has never gone back to review it. It is time! And, nothing will get the chickens in Congress moving unless the number of refugee arrivals drop to zero.

In the 1980 law the ceiling was set at 50,000 (unless there was an emergency) and Congress must be consulted (which amounts to not very much) if the President wished to change (increase) the number during the year.

We showed you here in recent years that the ceiling proposed was often not met. (Not meeting the ceiling doesn’t require any consultation with Congress.)

In fact, George Bush had 4 years under 50,000. Two of those years followed the dramatic slowdown after 9/11 when the government feared Islamic terrorists could get in to the program.

In 2002 the number admitted was 45,896 and in 2003 it was 39,554 (from all the usual countries we took refugees from). Obama had a pretty relatively low year too in 2012 (58,238).

As I understand it, Trump’s new cap of 50,000 is not included in the Washington State court decision.

I’m arguing that 50,000 isn’t low enough and he could cap the level right now.

It would stop refugee admissions from all areas of the world, not just the seven terror hotspots identified in the so-called travel ban.

As of this morning Wrapsnet reports that (in a little over 4 months) we are at 32,968 admitted this fiscal year (not far off the level Bush admitted in 2003). The contractors are well-aware of the fact that they still have nearly 20,000 paying clients on the way, see here.

And here are the numbers of some of the groups of concern admitted in those 4 months:

Iraqis: 4,841

Somalis: 4,035

Syrians: 4,884

Congress must reform the Refugee Act of 1980 and a slowdown for a few months is not enough incentive for them to get to work!

(It is not just about security either, it is about the economic costs as well, see here.)

If you haven’t already, tell Donald Trump what you think by clicking here.  And, if you’ve done it once, do it again!  Then go here and see what else you can do with that comment!

Ninth Circuit allows migrants from terror hotspots to resume entering the country

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 5, 2017

It is confusing and hopefully later there will be more clarity, but reportedly, overnight, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ordered both sides (the Washington State court that stopped Trump’s temporary halt of certain migrants and the US Justice Department) by tomorrow to prepare briefs supporting their arguments.

obama-trump

Double standard by the Left! (and CNN!) Obama could, with a pen, control who comes and who stays in America, but don’t dare let Donald Trump use that Constitutional authority!

So, if those bureaucrats working in the US State Department attempt to resume bringing refugees in to the US, they risk leaving refugees stranded in airports (again)—pawns for their political agenda.

From the Daily Mail:

President Donald Trump has lost an appeal against a court ruling blocking his travel ban on certain travellers and all refugees.

The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco instead asked both the state of Washington and the Trump administration early on Sunday to file more arguments by Monday afternoon.

More here and we can add more links as the day goes on.

As usual CNN this morning was on the side of stripping President Trump of his power to control immigration, while during the Obama Administration they were overjoyed and supportive as Obama said immigration was his prerogative under the Constitution.  The double standard is maddening to behold.

And, to further my annoyance level this morning. They are blasting Trump for saying something derogatory about the US in his O’Reilly interview when they said not a peep when Obama went on his apology tour of the Middle East and Africa early in his Administration.

By the way, where is Congress?  We have three branches of government. Can’t they do more there to support the President?

Oh, the wailing has begun, refugee contractors NOW trying to raise private money to stay afloat

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 4, 2017

President Barack Obama’s administration told resettlement organizations to staff up in anticipation of an increase in refugees this year!

Mark Hetfield told the AP

In the wake of only a 120-day slowdown for refugee resettlement, the nine major federal refugee contractors are moaning about how they will have to cut staff as they lose MILLIONS of federal dollars they receive to place ever increasing numbers of third worlders into unsuspecting American towns.

mark-hetfield-hias-logo

This is an Associated Press story filled with extremely useful information, here is the first part of it.  All of you in ‘pockets of resistance’ should keep the whole article.

We gave you a list of local sob stories here the other day, here are the major contractors.

From AP at Crossroads Today (emphasis is mine):

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Refugee resettlement organizations are bracing for significant funding cuts and possible layoffs over the coming months during President Donald Trump’s temporary refugee ban.

The agencies receive a certain amount of federal dollars per refugee they help resettle, which means they would lose a key source of funding unless the Trump administration provides funds in the interim during the 120-day temporary halt to refugees entering the U.S.

catholic-charities-logo

Catholic Charities USA says the executive order will cost the organization millions of dollars and put at risk about 7,000 jobs out of the 54,000 jobs at their agencies around the country, according to spokeswoman Patricia Cole.

 

So now they attempt to raise private Christian charity, why didn’t they do this long ago! The refugee program was supposed to be a public-private partnership, but the public share increases annually as the private share shrinks!

AP continues….

The group launched an $8 million fundraising campaign this week to help replace the funding it expects to lose during the four-month moratorium.

Catholic Charities agencies resettled roughly 23,000 of the nearly 85,000 refugees that entered the U.S. last year, Cole said. Most of them were women and children.

miliband-and-soros-3

British national David Miliband gives Soros the IRC’s top award—the 2013 Freedom Award (LOL! not fake news!). Miliband said Soros has made a “tremendous commitment to the advancement of human rights, social justice and democracy around the world.”

It is one of nine agencies*** that handle refugee resettlement. Another agency, International Rescue Committee is asking its donors to help raise $5 million to ensure its 29 offices around the country can continue to support refugees already here.  [Hey, here is a thought maybe David Miliband could take a pay cut, he gets over a half a million as CEO of this contractor. The budget for the IRC is more than a half a billion annually —ed]

Making matters worse for agencies is that President Barack Obama’s administration told resettlement organizations to staff up in anticipation of an increase in refugees this year, said Mark Hetfield, president of HIAS, formerly the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society.

You must read it all! Go here.

See that many of the employees they will let go are refugees. So next time you see their mumbo-jumbo about how they help refugees get jobs, remember many are getting jobs to advance the contractor’s agenda.

They want Trump to advance them money as Bush did after the 9/11 slowdown!

Don’t do it Donald, they are too big, too bloated, too lazy to raise private money, and they operate with secrecy and arrogance toward local citizens wherever they place refugees!

Readers, you can tell President Trump what you think here.

Be sure to tell him that these very same ‘non-profits’ whining for your tax dollars are deeply involved in plans to demonstrate against his administration, see here.

Trump halts (for now) ‘refugee’ flow from Malta to the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 3, 2017

If you have been reading RRW for ten years, you know this is like Christmas to me!

 

malta-boat

“New Americans” arriving on Malta (a nation in the European Union) from Libya (Libya the failed state thanks to Hillary/Obama). Photo: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-05-10/african-refugees-flee-libya-to-malta/2714380

 

Donald Trump’s EO on refugees stops the illegal flow of migrants who land in a safe EU country—Malta—to your towns and cities.

George Bush started this insanity and Obama continued it.

Boat people from Africa arrive as illegal aliens on Malta. International law requires that they ask for asylum in the first safe country they reach—Malta (or in the case of the failed asylum seekers Turnbull is trying to pawn off on us, Australia)—instead many are just loaded up to Anytown, USA. Many are Somalis, btw.

congress

Where is Congress? There are many tweeks Congress could make to the Refugee Act of 1980 and one is to stop this practice of taking refugees from countries where they are perfectly safe AND WHERE IT IS THAT COUNTRY’S RESPONSIBILITY NOT OURS!

When I first began writing about this practice in 2007 or 2008 (I didn’t look back), a US State Dept. employee contacted me anonymously and told me that this “new” policy was heavily criticized internally.

If you are an ambitious reader, you might consider reading through dozens and dozens of posts I have on the topic by clicking here (or use my search window for ‘Malta.’)

Imagine my joy to see the ABC headline US halts resettlement program from Malta.

It is only for 120 days, but maybe that is time enough for Congress to do something to stop it completely.

You know, and I know, that there is no way to thoroughly screen migrants who came by boat from failed states in Africa!

Here is ABC News:

A decade-old program to resettle a fixed quota of refugees arriving in the small, southern EU nation of Malta to the United States is another casualty of President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration.

U.S. Ambassador G. Kathleen Hill told Maltese media this week that the refugee resettlement program has been suspended for 120 days under the order.

It isn’t clear what will happen after the four months have elapsed. Hill said that the U.S. government is “reviewing the program” and the embassy is awaiting “further guidance” at the end of the 120 days.

More than 3,110 refugees have been resettled in the U.S. since 2007 to help ease pressure on Malta from the influx of migrants arriving by boat from northern Africa.

Processing country data at Wrapsnet is informative. I told you about it here not too long ago.

During the first 3 months of this fiscal year we admitted 170 of the migrants that Malta (the EU) didn’t accept and that Europeans had no will to turn back to Africa.

The first number is the case number and the second is the individual number. The ratio of cases to individuals tells us that most of those we took from Malta are single (men?).

Australia deal not a sure thing after word that Trump yelled at Australian Prime Minister

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 2, 2017

“This is the worst deal ever,” sending “next Boston bombers” into the US!

President Donald Trump

We’ve been telling you about the rotten deal Obama made with Australia that doesn’t benefit the US one bit ever since it surfaced, here, November 4th. (One more Obama dirty deal left behind for Trump!)

In a rare show of strength on any issue involving refugees, the Chairmen of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees came out against the deal here a couple of weeks after Trump was elected.

detention-nauru

Australia has its leftist open borders agitators too. They want the offshore detention facilities closed. Protests here in Melbourne last year. http://www.radionz.co.nz/international/pacific-news/317561/731-manus-island-detainees-sign-new-application

But, just a couple of days ago we heard Australian Prime Minister Turnbull telling his media that the deal would be honored by President Trump.  Now we are hearing the Administration’s side of it!

Before I give the latest news which I caught on CNN first thing this morning (remember I suggested you might want to watch CNN once in awhile because then you can see for yourself how they spin about news you know something about).

Here is what I know and you need to know as this continues to blow up today:

Australia does take refugees (CNN said this morning that they don’t!), but the Australian public doesn’t want these migrants (mostly Muslim men!) who tried to get into Australia by boat.  They were sent to detention on offshore islands where they failed to be granted asylum to live in Australia.

The Australian public does not want them and Turnbull is trying to save his political skin while human rights activists agitate and blast him from one side and the sensible Australian people from the other.

These are illegal migrants who failed to gain asylum in Australia! Australia doesn’t want them. Why are they our problem?

And, what are we getting from the deal? Supposedly Australia will take a number of Central American migrants parked in Costa Rica right now.***  So why are those people our problem?

***Update*** Excellent background report at the Center for Immigration Studies on the deal, by Nayla Rush, here.

To top it off, one of my Australian readers is saying that many of the 1,000-2,000 (numbers vary) in detention don’t want to come to “Donald Trump’s America” anyway!

Here is the news this morning, hat tip Judy:

President Trump reportedly blasted the Australian Prime Minister during a phone call between the leaders of the two longtime allies.

Trump told Australian leader Malcolm Turnbull that the conversation was “the worst call by far” among talks with various world leaders that day and ended the scheduled hour-long conversation after just 25 minutes, according to The Washington Post.

Trump was reportedly incensed that the Prime Minister expected him to abide by an Obama administration agreement to take in 1,250 refugees from Australia.

“This is the worst deal ever,” Trump told Turnbull in the call, adding that the country was trying to send the “next Boston bombers” into the US.

Trump was “yelling” at Turnbull during the call, according to SKY News in Australia, and the US president hung up the phone on him after 25 minutes.

Trump continued to rail against the refugee deal in a tweet sent Wednesday night.

“Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!” Trump tweeted.

Here we get the New York Post continuing the lie that these are ‘refugees.’  If they are legitimate refugees they are Australia’s problem!

The deal, however, includes refugees and not “illegal immigrants,” as Trump claimed.

[….]

The refugees in the agreement have fled Iraq, Iran, Sudan and Somalia. They have been living in facilities on islands off the coast of Australia.

congress

***This business of using refugees as pawns in political deals must stop.  In April 2012 I first testified to the US State Department and gave ten reasons why there needed to be a moratorium on refugee resettlement and this is #7:

7)   Congress needs to specifically disallow the use of the refugee program for other purposes of the US Government,especially using certain refugee populations to address unrelated foreign policy objectives—Uzbeks, Kosovars, Meshketians and Bhutanese (Nepalese) people come to mind.

So come on Congress, get to work! We know you are hiding behind Trump!

Be sure to let Donald Trump know how you feel about the Australia deal today!  Click here!

Why isn’t Afghanistan on President Trump’s list?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 1, 2017

trump-watch

Trump Watch! Let President Trump know what you think by going here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact#page

Update:  Paul Sperry writing at the New York Post a couple of days ago asks the same question, here.

As you know there are seven countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan, Yemen) from which the Trump Administration is restricting immigration/entry because of terror infiltration concerns.

There are lots of countries one might question that are not on the list, but I wondered why Afghanistan isn’t an obvious choice.

Someone asked me this week whether there was an increase in ‘refugees’ being admitted from Afghanistan and I thought it seemed like there was, so I just checked.

We admitted 11,191 ‘refugees’ from Afghanistan since FY 2004 and here is what it looks like (sorry this is the best I could do with the screenshots at Wrapsnet):

screenshot-221

screenshot-222

My columns aren’t the straightest, but see that the for FY2004 the number is 959, etc. Note the big jump in FY2016, indicating my suspicions were right.

There was a big uptick of refugee admissions from Afghanistan in FY2016. I checked religions as well and found that 97% were Muslims of some sort (not a surprise!).

As we have done in Iraq as well, we are bringing both sides of the Sunni vs. Shiite conflict to America.  4,106 were Shiites and 5,783 are Sunnis. So do we place them in the same communities in America?

A few of the 206 we admitted since last Friday are from Afghanistan.

Here is where those 11,191 were placed (from FY 2004 until yesterday):

screenshot-224

So, again, why isn’t Afghanistan a nation of concern?

Why we don’t want to be Angela Merkel’s Germany

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 1, 2017

Invasion of Europe news….

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been admired by the globalists (and Islamists!) for her welcome to hundreds of thousands of African and Middle Eastern migrants, so this is a reminder of why we must continue to press the Trump Administration and Congress to not emulate her!

merkel-and-obama

Barack Obama loved and admired Mama Merkel

Merkel is up for re-election this year, so this is likely her effort to look tough!

Story this morning from the UK Express:

16 suspected ISIS jihadis ‘plotting terror attacks’ arrested in 54 German raids

GERMAN counter-terrorism police have carried out a whopping 54 raids on a group of alleged Islamic State supporters believed to be plotting an attack, authorities have said.

The raids were carried out at 3am GMT (4am local time) in the western state of Hesse and targeted 16 alleged would-be jihadis.

Businesses, homes and mosques were targeted in the raids in Frankfurt, Darmstadt and Wiesbaden.

The main suspect of the sting operation is a 36-year-old Tunisian man who has been arrested during a raid in Frankfurt.

More here.

See our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive which extends back for about 5 years.

Despite the noisy open borders agitators, remember, you are in the majority of Americans wishing to slow the flow of refugees from terrorist regions of the world!

Let Donald Trump know how you feel! Click here. Tell him to save us from what Germany now faces!

Trump Watch! Did Trump cave and agree to take Australia’s rejected asylum seekers?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 29, 2017

I sure hope Reuters has this wrong!

If it is true it is truly insane!

For new readers, in the waning months of the Obama Administration, Obama made a deal with Australian Prime Minister Turnbull to take off their hands somewhere between 1000-2000 migrants being held in detention on offshore islands.

Australia does not want to give them asylum and bring them to their mainland, but Obama thought it was a swell idea for them to be distributed to American cities and towns!

nauru-detention-center

In 2015 the little darlings burned down the detention center on Nauru. And we are going to take some of these detainees to your towns and cities? Awful story and photo here: http://www.themercury.com.au/news/national/nauru-detention-centre-exstaffer-makes-horrific-claims-in-damages-suit/news-story/d3b3d623be8c968d960b3c90541207d2

We are told by Reuters that Trump agreed to honor the deal in a phone call with the Australian prime minister yesterday.

Again, Australia does not want these mostly Muslim illegal aliens who attempted to reach Australia by boat!

(See our past posts on the ‘Australia deal’ here.)

Here is Reuters:

President Donald Trump has confirmed that his administration will honor a refugee resettlement deal with Australia, a source close to the Australian government said on Sunday.

Trump spoke by telephone with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull earlier on Sunday, officials in both countries said, one of a number of conversations the new U.S. president held with world leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

The Australian government source told Reuters Trump confirmed the deal to resettle asylum seekers currently held in offshore detention camps to the United States would go ahead.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration had said the United States would take a substantial number of the 1,200 asylum seekers, who are held in the procession centers on remote Pacific islands in Papua New Guinea and Nauru, after Turnbull agreed to resettle refugees from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

U.S. Homeland Security officials have begun assessing the asylum seekers, although it was unclear when those found to be genuine refugees would be resettled. [Australia obviously found none who are legitimate refugees!—ed]

Many of those in Australia’s offshore camps have fled conflict in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and elsewhere.

Senator Grassley and Rep. Goodlatte identified the nationalities as the following: Iran, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, Sudan and “stateless” (probably Rohingya), here.

So what kind of a deal is this Donald?

We get Australia’s rejected asylum seekers (house, feed, clothe them on our dime) and a bunch of illegal aliens not even in the US from Central America being held in Costa Rica go to Australia.  What do we get out of that deal???

I’m guessing there is a strong caveat that Reuters may not want to focus on and that is that the ‘refugees’ must get through our surely stepped-up security screening when they clearly didn’t get through Australia’s.

Just in case….

Comment worth noting: Rohingya are economic migrants, fake refugees, do not admit to US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 27, 2017

The other day I told you that I believe that the Trump team doesn’t have a good understanding of where all of the questionable ‘refugees’ might be coming from.

We have been taking tens of thousands of refugees from Burma (Myanmar) over many years. Most have been Christian minorities that the Buddhist government there was forcing out. Now we are stepping up and taking Rohingya Muslims from Burma and Bangladesh.

I told you about it here just the other day.  Bangladesh is a Muslim country and so is Malaysia, one of several countries in the region harboring Rohingya boat people.

Why are the Rohingya our problem?

(Obama admitted 13,500 during his term in office.)

I have followed the Rohingya story since I first began writing RRW in 2007 and I can assure you the media has skewed the news to make it appear that the Rohingya are pure as the driven snow.  They never mention that the latest round of conflict began when Muslim men raped and murdered a Buddhist girl.  I have no time to go back over the 194 previous posts in my Rohingya reports category, you might want to have a look yourself. The writer, below, reports things that I found to be true over the years.

This is a comment we received in response to my post here (I don’t know this person). Emphasis is mine.

Winthan Aung:

Those so-called Refugees “Rohingya” Muslims are “economic” refugee. Basically, they are from Bangladesh. They will claim they are from Myanmar, for getting a refugee status and blame Myanmar government with bias fake stories. Trump must not take them into the US anymore. These people are good for nothing, and but for troubles. In Myanmar, they have caused a lot problem. They are with Mujahideen Terrorists.

burmese-monks

Burmese monks making their views clear!

The “Rohingya” name pop out not long ago, ridiculously they wanna claim themselves as new ethnic of Myanmar. In fact, The “Rohingya” word is not mentioned in any dating back to Arakan (now Rakhine) Kingdom years, not long before 1950 as well. In fact, there was no historical report about fighting for Burma Independent movement at all. The ‘Rohingya’ was totally unknown to the British administration of Burma.

In WWII, British India region merged Burma/India border, that opened freely Western border of Myanmar. The people who lived Chittagong of Bangladesh and India got opportunities to travel and work in Western of Myanmar.

The Partition of India gave East Chittagong Bangladeshi people ideas that they could take advantage on the Western part of Burma as well. There was 1971 Bangladesh genocide, the Urdu-speakers was “Non-Bengalis” that time. That worries for Chittagong Bangladeshi, they wouldn’t be considered as Bangladeshi in Bangladesh.

From 1946 a separatist, the jihadist uprising had gripped Arakan and in support of their political agenda, the ‘Rohingya’ myth was created after.

At Uprising of jihadist Chittagong Bangladesh (now Bengali Muslims) chanted “Pakistan Zindabad” while killing Rakhine Citizen. Mujahideen took advantage and encroached Rakhine land at WWII. There were the mass killing of Rakhine people and hundreds of villages burned down in 1942. On 28 March 1942, Bangladeshi Muslims from Northern Arakan massacred around 20,000 Buddhists in Buthidaung and Maungdaw townships. At the same period, around 5,000 Muslims in Minbya and Mrauk-U Townships were also killed by the Arakanese Buddhists.

However, Myanmar government intervened the Mujahideen movement by the time of 1962. The Myanmar Government banned all Bangladeshi illegal immigrants who are already in Rakhine state (Western Part of Myanmar) not to travel all states of Myanmar. The economic illegal immigrants stuck in Rakhine state, mostly Maungdaw township, Buthidaung and Rathedaung Townships of Northern Rakhine State.

Due to the poverty of Bangladesh, the economic immigrants from Bangladesh never stop coming to the Western part of Burma. More than 26 million live under the poverty line in Bangladesh, they live on less than $1.25 a day. the Government is not willing to do anything for them.

On the other hands, Myanmar Government was totally corrupted and the Junta was notoriously threatening to all ethnic groups in Myanmar. The Shan, Kachin, Kaya, Kayin, Chin, Rakhine ethnic groups suffered and they become refugees in Thailand and Malaysia. Real ethnic groups of Myanmar got opportunities to settle down in third countries after suffering.

When UNHCR focuses on Myanmar for ethnic crisis, Bangladeshi fake refugees approached and got aids by UNHCR as well, the people who didn’t make $1.25 a day got the opportunity to live with UN aids in Burma is their fortune, as long as they fabricated with fake stories to convince UNHCR staffs of their so-called people beaten up by Junta and harsh treatment of Myanmar Government. In order to convince UNHCR, they had pretended they were one of ethnic, “Rohingya”, which never existed in History of Burma.

When refugees crisis is the focus by internationals. They take advantages of getting resettlement. fake media will promote for their rating. Their advocates gain access to so many political, social and academic platforms to promote their sole agenda. Meanwhile, Myanmar government unethically approached them as well, issue “White card” as temporary identity card and forced them to vote for their Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) at Election. On the other hand, Global Muslims (grassroots to imams) gang up on the people of Myanmar (all over internet and media). Speaking of “Rohingya”, there is no ethnic name in Myanmar, If you have ethnic, you must have own language, they don’t have Rohingya language, they speak only as Chittagong Bengali, breath as Chittagong Bengali, they are only recognized as Bengali in Myanmar, nothing more than that. They are not really stateless, their motherland is Bangladesh.

By staying in the refugees camp in Bangladesh or getting aids from UNHCR office in Myanmar couldn’t make them satisfied. In Myanmar, they cannot travel only in Rakhine state. They later learned about resettlement program of UNHCR. But UNHCR in Myanmar didn’t have any resettlement program for them. However, UNHCR at Malaysia and Thailand provides the refugee to resettlement in third countries.

Getting into Myanmar is easy, bribery helps them to get inside of Myanmar easily. Or just cross over the river where there is no border guard. However, getting to Malaysia is hard for them. Smugglers convinced Bangladeshi how they could earn $1000 in a month in Malaysia. Indeed the Bangladeshi who made to Malaysia could get a better living. Thus, Bangladeshi are deliberately paying smugglers about US$200 to $250 to travel to Malaysia to become economic Refugees. The people who move in this route, bet with their lives at risk. But this is the only way they could effort to travel. If they got lucky, they will get a chance to get resettlement in third countries instantly.

Any Refugees coming to Malaysia/Thailand are usually sent to countries like Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, New Zealand, Norway, and the United States for resettlement. However, Thailand route has long wait time to get to third countries. Their best destination is the Malaysia. There is already 42,230 Rohingya under UNHCR protection in Malaysia. That is the main motivation for them to get to there, and it is the cheapest way for traveling to Malaysia if they are not very lucky, they usually end up in Thailand, wait for more years to get the resettlement or travel again to Malaysia.

After arriving in Malaysia, they filed asylum (application) at UNHCR for refugee status, UNHCR aid these refugees, and provides monthly allowances for them until they get the settlement in third countries. Anyhow, they could easily go back without problems if they don’t get refugee status (but they are not willing to go back, even without refugee card, they could earn money) or if they have money, they usually buy refugee status in Malaysia. Some smuggler applied UNHCR card for selling the Refugees status in Malaysia. They usually pay Malaysia RM-3,500 for the card. UNHCR aware about those fraudulent activities, but they kept on silences.

The economic refugees are traveling again and again to Malaysia until international leaders push pressure to Bangladesh. Sooner or later, you will see another boat come out from Bangladesh, and claims they are from Myanmar since the topic is hot. In that case, Myanmar government is easy to blame. They have kept doing for the decade. This time they got caught by authorities (Thai, Malaysia, Indonesia) who got enough of their problems (too many crimes cases with Rohingya in Thai, Malaysia), and push back to sea.

The people are sneaking into other countries without papers by boats, they left the Bangladesh, they have only 2 points in this immigration – firstly try to get UNHCR status or get a chance to work in any country, because they don’t get enough to make living in Bangladesh. Bangladesh has been overcrowded you can view the Dhaka video – https://www.facebook.com/Rmbds/videos/1245958078756125/, they cannot make up living at there, some of Bangladeshi in that country even sell their organs just little as $5000 well.

If you call these fake people a “Refugees”, then we fail to support real refugees who really need for. We must save cards for real one, not these fakes.
