Poland standing firm: Will not take refugee “quota” they were previously assigned

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 18, 2017

European nations on the edges of Europe have taken the full brunt of the migrant flood to Europe.

The fault lies in the fact that the EU leadership never had the guts to turn the boats back to Turkey or the North African coast when the invasion began in earnest several years ago.  Additionally the invasion of Europe from N. Africa accelerated when several European countries, with the Obama Administration’s help (Hillary!), destabilized Libya.

Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło. If Donald Trump really wanted to change the subject, go on the offense, and at the same time encourage his base, he should invite Beata to the White House! Don’t you find it interesting that fearless women opposition leaders in Germany, France and Poland are so vocal about defending against the invasion of Europe?

So the people of Poland elected a government that has steadfastly said, this is not our problem! Why should we welcome the mostly Muslim migrants when statistics show that doing so results in increased turmoil and violence (and expense for taxpayers!)?  See map here.

Here is the latest news on efforts to pressure Poland and Hungary. 

Always remember that it was a Polish king who saved Europe from a Muslim takeover in 1683!  Maybe the Poles have a long memory (unlike the French who also once in history turned back the invasion).

You go girl!

UK Independent:

Poland’s Prime Minister has claimed the country “cannot accept refugees” as the EU threatens legal action against nations failing to comply with quotas.

Alongside Hungary and Austria, it is one of only three countries not to have relocated a single refugee, “in breach of their legal obligations” and commitments.

Dimitris Avramopoulos: Do as I say!

“This cannot be the responsibility of just a few member states – this must be shared be all,” said Dimitris Avramopoulos, the European Commissioner for migration.

But Prime Minister Beata Szydło told a press conference there had been no formal agreement to compulsory quotas, which Hungary and Poland voted against.

“A critical attitude towards the mechanism of migrant relocation is becoming increasingly widespread in the European Union,” she claimed, according to a translation by state broadcaster Poland Radio.

“Poland cannot accept refugees.”

The EU originally set the goal for the distribution of migrants at 160,000 by September 2017.  They will be lucky to seed 40,000 by later this year.

But fewer than 18,500 people have been resettled so far and while Poland has been assigned 6,200 refugees, none have been admitted.

The country committed to taking in up to 10,000 migrants at the start of the crisis but after winning the 2015 elections, the populist Law and Justice party (PiS) reversed the decision.

7,000 Africans made it to Europe over the Easter weekend as invasion heats up

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 17, 2017

Invasion of Europe news….

 

This will never end as long as the ‘humanitarians’ keep picking them up off the Libyan coast. http://appsforpcdaily.com/2017/04/over-2000-migrants-and-refugees-rescued-in-mediterranean/

 

Also heating up is the exchange of words between the so-called rescue ships and the EU’s migration authority. EU agencies accuse NGO migrant rescue boats of creating a “pull factor” which only encourages more people to try to reach Europe in anything that floats.

I will never let you forget! Hillary is directly responsible for the invasion of Europe from Libya! Call it Gadaffi’s revenge. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/03/19/hillarys-libyan-legacy-still-responsible-for-invasion-of-europe-as-italy-panics/

There are a bunch of news stories today and yesterday about the increase in numbers of African migrants trying to get to Europe from launch-pad-Libya (we should call it Hillary’s invasion of Europe!).

Here is one at CNN:

Calm seas, desperate migrants and ruthless human traffickers all played a role in a record-breaking weekend of maritime rescues in the Mediterranean Sea between Italy and Libya.

But even as the rescue vessels race against time to save lives, another battle is brewing with accusations from the European Union’s border control agency Frontex against nongovernmental organizations like Doctors Without Borders and the Mobile Offshore Aid Station, or MOAS, that run so-called charity rescue ships. Frontex says the charity rescue vessels create a pull factor for migrants and traffickers; the NGOs say they are out there in the absence of an EU strategy to save lives at sea and a lack of initiative to provide a safe corridor option for migration and asylum.

On Sunday evening in Italy, the Italian Coast Guard estimated the number of those rescued since Friday was approaching 7,000, though that number will surely grow as a steady stream of rubber dinghies and rickety wooden fishing vessels were still being spotted off the coast of Libya.

[….]

In a press release, MOAS co-founder and director Regina Catrambone agreed. “Every day people continue to risk their lives while we, as civil society, stand witness. We must continue to call on European governments to act so that people, such as those rescued by us today, do not die, not in Libya nor in the Mediterranean Sea.”

Much more here.

For those who think this doesn’t affect you in America, it does.  We have an extensive archive on the fact that we have been taking some of the illegal migrants who reach the island nation of Malta to your towns as refugees. Here is one recent post.

Eastern European countries join forces! Refuse to take refugees Brussels is pushing on them

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 29, 2017

Invasion of Europe news….

Europe is in the mess it is in because leaders in Brussels did not have the will to stop the migration from the Middle East and North Africa in its earliest days.  It would have only taken a few boats being turned back to the African coast and to the Turkish coast to stop the whole damn thing!

Europe has been invaded and at least these countries understand that Europe will become a Muslim continent in a few decades if they too take in the mostly Muslim migrants.

Visegrad group attack dogs!

I love the name of this group of countries in the title to this story at Euractiv.com:

Visegrad Four slam ‘blackmail’ by Brussels on migrants

Leaders from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Poland (the Visegrád Four) rejected yesterday (28 March) what they called Brussels’ use of “blackmail and diktat” over planned resettlements of migrants across the EU.

Long opposed to sharing the burden of hosting mainly Syrian refugees, the four eastern EU states ruled out any links between accepting them and future disbursements of EU funds.

Eastern EU states “will never accept blackmail and diktat” on migration policy, Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydło said at a press conference in Warsaw with her Czech, Hungarian and Slovak counterparts.

Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka insisted that all four countries “oppose linking the debate about migration to European funds”.

“This is blackmail, that we reject in the name of the Slovak government,” added Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico.

EU members have until September to take in 160,000 refugees from Syria and elsewhere currently living in Greece and Italy, which have been on the frontline of the migration crisis.

So far only 13,500 have been relocated in a laborious process that has been bogged down by resistance from central and eastern European states that oppose Muslim immigration.

This month, the EU warned that countries could be punished if they fail to share the burden, raising the possibility of fines on member states.

See our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive by clicking here.

Attack dog or whipped puppy?

If President Donald Trump wanted to regain momentum after the courts shut him down on his EO on migration from terror-producing states, he should invite leaders of the Visegrad Four to the White House.  That sure would send a message and distract the media!

At this moment on the issue of refugees Trump is looking like a whipped puppy!

I checked the admissions just now and since March 16th, when the 120-day moratorium was supposed to begin (a pause he did not have to include in an Executive Order where the courts could, and did, constrain him), we have admitted another 587 refugees!

What ever happened to the order to stop booking travel after March 3rd.  The Dept. of State can do that without an Executive Order!

Surely this continued flow is what is giving the contractors some reason to say they are “cautiously hopeful.”

Trump Administration proceeding with Obama’s Australian “dumb deal”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 21, 2017

In a story about whether Australia’s illegal alien/asylum seekers housed on Nauru and Manus islands had another choice to go to another country besides the US (no, there isn’t another choice except for the previously offered Cambodia), we learn that Trump has sent a team to those islands to begin the screening process.

Here is the news from News Corp Australia:

(Don’t forget, most of the aliens held in offshore detention centers are from Muslim countries.)

THE immigration department chief has confirmed Australia is not negotiating with any other countries to find refugee resettlement places for people on Nauru and Manus Island who miss out on going to the US.

Even after riots that burned a portion of the detention center, Australian leftists want them as their neighbors. Why should US towns get them? Photo: http://www.ibtimes.com/asylum-australia-one-killed-many-injured-asylum-seekers-riot-papua-new-guinea-detention-camp-manus

Asked what happens to the refugees who miss out on America, department secretary Michael Pezzullo said there was scope for them to stay in Papua New Guinea, on Nauru or go to Cambodia.

Out of five refugees who went to Cambodia, only one is left — the rest went back to their countries of origin, despite the $55 million budgeted for the deal.

Mr Pezzullo rubbished suggestions the US may take no refugees under the resettlement deal with Australia.

“I don’t agree it could be zero,” Mr Pezzullo told a Senate inquiry hearing in Canberra late on Monday night. He said the agreement was for in the ballpark of 1250.

[….]

The deal was struck with the Obama administration and will reluctantly be honoured by new US President Donald Trump, who branded it a “dumb deal”.

[….]

The hearing was told there are teams of US Homeland Security officials on Nauru doing fingerprinting and security interviews who will then go on to Manus Island in April and May. Medical screening would follow.

Department official Rachel Noble said America had not set any parameters around the country-of-origin of refugees that it will accept, despite a 90-day travel ban to the US by citizens of six Muslim countries — Yemen, Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia and Sudan.

Continue reading here.

If we start to admit the ‘refugees’ Australia does not want to take to its homeland, we need to demand to know which lucky US towns and cities will get them!

Hillary’s Libyan legacy still responsible for invasion of Europe as Italy panics

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 19, 2017

Invasion of Europe news….

I’m not going to let you all forget that it was Hillary and her girls who were responsible for the overthrow of Libyan strongman Muammar Ghaddafi that resulted in the opening of the flood gates from Africa to Europe for tens of thousands of mostly economic migrants from the heart of Africa to countries like Italy geographically on the frontline of the invasion.

Even Obama didn’t have the stomach for the slaughter of Ghaddafi.  I followed the whole sorry tale from its earliest days here at RRW.

Susan Rice, Hillary and Samantha Power. Hillary admitted that in 2011 Obama was reluctant to follow Europe’s lead and get involved in Libya, but that she marshaled the forces (including Susan Rice and Samantha Power) to persuade Obama to help overthrow Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Ultimately, she said, it was the President’s decision thereby tossing blame back on Obama when the results of her actions have proven so disastrous. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2015/10/23/hillary-and-the-girls-are-to-blame-for-libyan-hellhole-european-invasion/

 

Of course the Europeans made that fatal mistake in the earliest days of the invasion by not turning back (using safe methods) the first boats that were launched from the Libyan coast. Now they rescue each one sending a signal to people smugglers to keep ’em coming!

Here is the latest news from Middle East Monitor:

Italy panics as North Africa migrants surge

Italy will host a meeting between European and North African countries next week in a bid to strengthen support for an agreement it struck with Libya to fight people smuggling as migrant arrivals surge.

The prime minister of the UN-backed government in Tripoli, Fayez Al-Seraj, will meet with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni and interior ministers from eight European countries including Germany and France on Monday.

Last month, Italy pledged money, training and equipment to help Libya fight people smugglers, a deal that was endorsed by European Union member states.

But Libya is still far from stable. Two governments are vying for power – in Tobruk to the east and Tripoli to the west – and the country remains mired in factional fighting and lawlessness.

The authorities in eastern Libya have rejected the deal struck between Rome and Tripoli.

“I’m not so naive as to not understand the situation there,” Italian Interior Minister Marco Minniti told reporters. “But we cannot remain immobile and wait for the country to stabilise.”

He said the Libya agreement and next week’s meeting were not just “talk”, but strategic steps toward managing mass migration to Europe.

So far this year more than 16,000 migrants – a 36 per cent increase on the same period last year – have been rescued at sea and brought to Italy after Libya-based people smugglers piled them onto flimsy boats.

Don’t miss Hillary cackling about her success in killing Gaddafi. She looks like an absolute loon here:

 

Another version of Hillary’s  looney laugh, is here. Don’t you think it might be too early for her to come out of the woods!

Only Malta and Finland on target to take allocated migrants from Italy and Greece under EU ‘sharing’ scheme

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 3, 2017

“All these measures have the principle of solidarity and fair sharing of responsibility at their core – a principle that binds each member state.”

(Frans Timmermans)

 

Invasion of Europe news….

If you are a regular reader of RRW, you know that Italy and Greece have taken the brunt of the invasion of Europe as those two countries are the most easily reached from Africa and the Middle East.  You also know that a complete and shameful lack of will several years ago by the European Union to turn boats back to the African (or Turkish) coast resulted in a wave of hundreds of thousands of migrants attempting to get to Europe.

frans-timmermans

I’d like to ask the European Commissions first VP, Timmermans, what is fair about demanding that countries that wanted the boats turned back years ago are now expected to take a certain number of migrants because big, prosperous countries like Germany, France and others had no spine.

Of course Italy and Greece can’t manage the numbers, so a ‘sharing’ scheme was designed in 2015 where European Commission member states were apportioned a certain number of the mostly economic migrants to welcome to their countries.

Below is a screenshot showing how many each country was expected to take and how many each had agreed to.

Here is the latest news! Surprise! Quotas are not being met!  Only Malta and Finland are on target we are told.

If you think none of this involves us—Americans! Think again!

Most maddening to me is that Malta is getting praised for being on target when we, the US, take about 500 fake refugees off their hands each year!

See my recent post on this outrageous relocation of mostly African boat people to your towns that began in the Bush Administration.

From The Guardian:

European countries have accepted less than 10% of the 160,000 refugees they promised to move to safety from unsanitary and cramped camps in Italy and Greece, leading the European commission to warn it will “accept no more excuses”.

Only 13,546 relocations have been carried out so far – 3,936 from Italy and 9,610 from Greece – amounting to just 8% of the total the EU committed to relocate in 2015.

Just two member states, Malta and Finland, have met their resettling obligations under the relocation scheme that will close in September.

[….]

Despite February setting a monthly record with about 1,940 relocations, the pace of relocation is still well below the targets of at least 3,000 a month from Greece and at least 1,500 from Italy.

Hungary, Austria and Poland refuse to participate in the relocation scheme. The Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovakia are doing so on a “very limited basis”. The UK, which can opt out on parts of European asylum policy, has chosen not to participate.

During a press conference in Brussels, the commissioner for migration, Dimitris Avramopoulos, warned that infringement proceedings against member states, including huge daily fines, could soon be levied.

Continue reading here.

As I understand it, these numbers represent migrants who have not already been approved through a normally long asylum process. If I am right about that, then The Guardian’s chart calling them “refugees” is inaccurate. They should be referred to as ‘migrants.’

This is a screenshot of the 2015 allocation goals (from The Guardian): what the European Commission expects and what countries actually agreed to.  The numbers may have changed since 2015, but you get the idea….

President Trump supposedly stopped the flow from Malta to America in his first immigration order. It isn’t clear to me whether that survived the court challenge.  We will know more in a few days.

All they needed to do to save Europe from invasion was to turn back just a couple of boats

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 23, 2017

….but it is too late.

Here is a long story at Bloomberg Businessweek that you don’t have to read. It is an overly-long, detailed account of the travails of a Somali migrant (is he even telling the truth?) being trafficked in to Europe.

 

mediteranean-rescue-ships

At another time in history, citizens of Europe would see clearly that these are invaders. http://worldmaritimenews.com/archives/166749/thousands-of-migrants-rescued-in-the-mediterranean/

 

The invasion began in earnest when Obama and Hillary destabilized Libya opening the best migrant launchpad ever available on the coast of North Africa.  (I have many posts here on Hillary and Libya).

In 2015, then Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott told the Europeans what they must do.  They didn’t listen!

He said to begin (safely) turning boats back to the African coast.  It would only take a few returns to derail the network of traffickers making millions by moving Africans to Europe.

I can’t believe that we might see the end of Europe as a bulwark of western civilization even in my lifetime (and I am old!), my children will certainly see it!

Tony Abbott: Turn back the boats!

In my opinion, only two paragraphs matter in this long Bloomberg piece that followed the route of one Somali star of the story. Here they are:

At last, one night in the spring of 2015, some men moved him to a rubber boat on the beach. With a hundred other people, he moved out onto the darkened Mediterranean. “We were on the water for 16 hours,” he said. One migrant carried a satellite phone and called an Italian number when the boat started to leak. “Then we were rescued by the Italian Coast Guard,” said Ahmed.

The rescue ships on the Mediterranean—the U.S. Coast Guard, NGO vessels, Eunavfor frigates—try to give some comfort to the people they scoop from the sea. They offer thin, warm stew and a quick medical checkup before delivering them to an Italian port. Ahmed arrived in Sicily in about March 2015. He’s still there, at the CARA Mineo refugee camp, waiting for European asylum.

The traffickers know how to get the invaders ‘rescued.’

I didn’t know that the US Coast Guard was involved in the European invasion, but, if so, it’s time for Trump to pull them back.

Maddening! Malta takes ‘refugees’ from Greece and Italy and passes others on to US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 19, 2017

I’m going to be quick I hope.  If you have been a longtime reader you know one of my complaints for the last nine years is that we are taking illegal aliens who landed on the EUROPEAN island nation of Malta to the US as refugees.

They are Malta’s and the EU’s problem not ours!

 

libya-to-europe-express

On the Libya to Europe express, hoping for a ticket to your town!

 

Here we learn that Malta has agreed to help with the ‘refugee’ burden-sharing as other European Union countries—Italy and Greece—-are getting the full brunt of the migrant invasion.

So check it out! Malta took a total of 80 migrants who arrived in Italy and Greece over a brief few month’s period.

From Malta’s Independent:

Malta is well on track to meeting its commitments regarding the relocation of refugees from Italy and Greece, according to the ninth progress report on the EU’s emergency relocation and resettlement schemes, assessing actions taken since 8 December 2016.

[….]

Malta is one of Seven countries who are “fully engaged in relocation from Italy,” and is also on track to meet its obligations. As at 7 February this year, Malta effectively relocated 46 refugees from Italy. Malta has also effectively relocated 34 refugees from Greece.

Because the EU has no will to stop the invasion, why does their problem become ours?

See here…..

In the first four months of this fiscal year, see that we took 210 of the economic migrants off Malta’s hands and brought them to the US as REFUGEES.

So, Malta takes 80 from Italy/Greece and gets praise for it, while they pass 210 on to us!

This is the definition of insanity!  Where is Congress? Could be an easy legal fix if Trump’s US State Department doesn’t stop it soon!

From Wrapsnet Processing Center data:

screenshot-317

This is one of several pages for the first 4 months of the fiscal year. BTW, see El Salvador, those aren’t legitimate refugees either. We have been taking 400-500 or so a year from Malta ever since the Bush Administration.

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:
