Increasing Numbers of Migrants from Africa/Asia Trying to Reach US

That is what Judicial Watch is reporting.  Thanks to reader Cathy for the tip.

This is an update of news I shared at RRW last month, here.

African migrants in Mexico demonstrate. Demand Mexico let them head to the US border. https://www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2019-09-21/african-migrants-stuck-in-southern-mexico-their-american-dream-on-hold

MEXICO REPORTS 250% SPIKE IN AFRICANS TRYING TO ENTER U.S. THROUGH BORDER

Mexico has seen an astounding 250% increase in Africans trying to enter the United States through the southern border, according to the latest figures released by the Mexican government’s immigration agency, known as Unidad de Política Migratoria. The stats include the first eight months of 2019 and reveal that, during the same period last year, 1,507 Africans were apprehended in the country compared to 5,286 this year. During the same period 4,783 migrants from India and Bangladesh were also detained in Mexico, according to the data made public this month.

The information is alarming considering Africa and Bangladesh are hotbeds of terrorism and the fact that all the migrants are heading north into the United States. “These migrants, although less in numbers compared to migrants from Central America, increased significantly in the country,” a Mexican newspaper article states, confirming that “their principle objective is not to stay in Mexican territory but rather cross the border towards the United States.” The story also reveals that a growing number of Cubans, Haitians and south Americans, mainly from Brazil and Colombia, have also been apprehended by Mexican authorities trying to make their way to the U.S. border.

The spike in Africans is worrisome considering the State Department has determined that Africa is a major hub of Islamic terrorism, including al-Shabaab in the eastern part of the country and Boko Haram and ISIS in the west. Bangladesh is also a national security concern because the south Asian Islamic country is well known as a recruiting ground for terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda Indian Subcontinent (AQIS). Earlier this year a congressional probe revealed that migrants from terrorist nations, especially Bangladesh, are trying to enter the United States through Mexico at record rates.

Texas alone saw a whopping 300% increase in Bangladeshi nationals attempting to sneak into the country, according to the federal investigation outlined in a lengthy report.

I’m glad to see JW getting more involved in immigration issues. They may eventually get more information out of our government on these issues through their expertise with the Freedom of Information Act.

Who is encouraging this movement of Africans to Mexico and on to the US Border?

In 2011 I speculated it was NGOs and suggested a Congressional investigation was desperately needed.  Of course, for some reason, no one is interested in answering that question.

New Post at RRW: Xenophobic Riots in the Rainbow Nation=More Refugees for America!

If you didn’t see it, check out my post yesterday at the newly reconstructed Refugee Resettlement Watch.

Ho hum! Rainbow Nation Myth Implodes! More Xenophobic Attacks by South African Blacks

 

South African blacks don’t like foreigners—other black Africans—so they try to drive them out of SA or kill them.

Black on black violence erupts again in South Africa

 

The irony of course is that the nation dubbed the “Rainbow Nation” was supposed to be a socialist model, a multi-culti nirvana for the world after the largely white government was ousted and racism given the boot.  Now they have to call the tribalism of black South Africans “xenophobia” since the target of their discrimination is fellow blacks.

And, if you think this doesn’t affect you think again!  Those black Africans being persecuted by black South Africans are being brought to the US as legitimate refugees!

Here is a 2018 story from Mankato, Minnesota about how one Somali family got into the US as ‘refugees’ from South Africa.  The so-called Trump Muslim ban of Somalis doesn’t affect them because they didn’t come from Somalia!

Africans in Maine: We don’t want to live in the forest! We hate snakes!

This news from earlier this month has been languishing in my posting queue and today I thought it was time for a little laugh.

black-racer
Maine has very few snakes.  This one, a black-racer, is rare.

I’ve been telling you about the African asylum seekers migrating to Maine where the welfare is excellent.

So many have arrived in Portland that new ‘welcoming’ communities needed to be found with available housing.

Here we have a story from the Associated Press in which the Africans say they don’t want to live in the forests of Maine.

Some families expressed fear about being relocated from the busy city to towns where the vast woods that are part of Maine’s identity could trigger bad memories from their journeys. They recalled seeing fellow asylum seekers fall to their deaths, get swept away by rivers, starve to death and get bitten by venomous snakes in Panama’s infamous Darien Gap, a jungle that’s known for dangerous wildlife and bandits.

These are city dwellers who expected to be set up in ethnic enclaves in Portland, not sent to small town Maine.

Neil Munro, writing at Breitbart (Hat tip: Mary) then picked up the story and had a little fun with it:

Migrants to Progressives: Protect Us from Our Fear of Snakes in Maine

“Maine probably isn’t the place a dedicated herpetologist would like to spend much time,” reports a webpage about snakes in Maine. “There are only nine species and two sub-species of snakes in the Pine Tree State, none of them venomous and only one considered endangered. The Maine Herpetological Society lists three other species as having “special concern” status, with dwindling numbers in the state.”

I was reminded of news I reported at Refugee Resettlement Watch a few years ago where Syrian Muslims were refusing to be placed in Sweden’s forested region because they feared the forests too.

That 2015 story is still available at The Local.  Asylum seekers refused to get off the bus that took them to a region of Sweden used primarily by holiday-seeking Swedes.

Of course, you and I are thinking—picky, picky, picky!

If they were truly running for their lives as they proclaim, then living where most of us would love to vacation because of its natural beauty should be gratefully accepted.

Diversity Visa Lottery takes Prize for Suckering US Citizens/American Workers

Do all of you know what the Diversity Visa Lottery is? Maybe you know it by its other name—the Green Card Lottery.
green card lottery
The Immigration Act of 1990, signed into law by George H.W. Bush, set up what I will call a monstrosity.
Supposedly we don’t have enough diversity in America and needed to open our welcoming arms to a larger variety of the world’s ethnic populations (and more workers to compete for American jobs)!
Here is what Wikipedia says about it,

The lottery is administered by the Department of State and conducted under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). It makes available 50,000 immigrant visas annually and aims to diversify the immigrant population in the United States, by selecting applicants from countries with low numbers of immigrants in the previous five years. As of 2017, around 20 million people apply for the lottery each year.

All efforts to kill the program have failed.
And, what drew my attention to it today (I did write about it from time to time at RRW) is this whiny report about how the recent “winners” couldn’t get on the State Department website earlier this week to find out if they had won a ticket to Anytown, USA.

Think About It! A UN Staff Person is Deciding who Will Become a New American

“Given such high stakes, and the reports of abuses, the U.S. government might want to reconsider the whole resettlement referral system put in place by UNHCR.”

(Nayla Rush, Center for Immigration Studies)

That is the conclusion that Nayla Rush at the Center for Immigration Studies comes to after doing a deep dive into that recent NBC investigation about fraud and corruption within the United Nations as it does the first sorting-out of potential refugees for America.

Bangladesh: Thousands of new arrivals assisted to transit centre, camps
Rohingya refugees.  Who makes the first cut on who your new American neighbors will be?

 
See my report here about what NBC found.
What Rush prescribes is exactly what the Trump Administration should have been doing from day one—REFORMING the entire system of refugee resettlement that begins in Africa, Asia, or the Middle East when a wannabe refugee first registers with the UN for permanent resettlement.
Rush’s report (published yesterday) is here and this is her wrap-up (emphasis is mine),

logo CIS

The United States is entrusting the local staff of UNHCR with the selection of refugees eligible for resettlement in the United States, and entrusting the RSC staff with pre-screening and preparation of case files for resettlement applicants. We don’t know much about these men and women the U.S. government believes possess the exceptional good judgment, expertise, and integrity needed to make refugee determinations and resettlement referrals. But we do know that most work in difficult conditions and are citizens of unsettled countries where corruption is at times deemed an acceptable, even necessary, means of survival.
Let’s not forget that resettlement is one of UNHCR’s “durable solutions”. Resettled refugees are required by law “to apply for a green card (permanent residence) in the United States one year after being admitted as a refugee”.18 They can apply for citizenship four years later (not five, as the five-year count for refugees starts on the day of arrival). From this perspective, a resettlement card gives access to citizenship. UNHCR staff are, in a way, deciding not only who can move to the United States, they are also choosing who will have the opportunity to become an American. Given such high stakes, and the reports of abuses, the U.S. government might want to reconsider the whole resettlement referral system put in place by UNHCR.
If “vulnerability” is no longer the key to selecting refugees for resettlement, does that mean bribery is?

Read it all here.
For the umpteenth time, Trump did a good job slowing the flow to America especially from countries that have been Islamic terror-producing hot spots.  (BTW, Rohingya Muslim arrivals are coming at a fast pace.)

However, the entire flawed system is still firmly in place to be refueled with more of your tax dollars the minute Trump is no longer in the White House.  

Maddening!
