Frankly I don’t know why the use of DNA testing at our southern border is still only a “pilot program” when we know that many trying to break into America have someone else’s kid in tow.
The other day I reported in my News Round-up on one pair of wannabe ‘new Americans’ exposed when DNA tests revealed that the child being escorted to the US was not related to the border jumper at all.
Now the Washington Examiner is reporting that in some cases on-the-spot DNA testing is being used to prove a fraud is being committed on us, however, it is only being used on a limited basis.
This reminds me of the shock the US State Department got in 2008 when they discovered that massive family reunification fraud among Somalis had allowed tens of thousands of Somali ‘refugees’ to get into the country illegally.
How could there be so many cheaters they wondered! See my extensive coverage that began in 2008 when the Wall Street Journal first reported the Somali family fraud.
And, an even bigger shock is that NBCis featuring this lengthy investigation into charges of corruption, fraud and bribery in the agency that selects refugees for your American towns and cities.
Featured in what is billed as a first installment of a seven-month-long investigation is Africa and specifically Somali resettlement from the huge camp, Dadaab, run by the UNHCR, that I mentioned in a post here recently.
It is a huge story both in impact and in its length, so I’ve snipped a bit here for you to get the gist of it.
Money, and lots of money, helps ‘refugees’ move to the head of the line and in this opening segment we learn that a likely crook is living in Minnesota (I know don’t laugh!).
What that means is that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is between a rock and a hard place as he has an immigration problem at hissouthern border!
As tens of thousands of wannabe refugees go across the US border between points of entry and into Canada, anti-immigrant political hardliners are making the issue a critical one in the upcoming October national election.
Presently, a treaty with the US allows Canadian immigration authorities to turn back asylum seekers to a safe US at points of entry only, but not in between points of entry.
Canada wants to change the treaty in order to turn them all back, but that is tricky for Trudeau who has put out the welcome mat to the world for the first 3 years of his administration.
“…..the government’s proposed changes to the deal would clash with Canada’s image as a country that welcomes asylum seekers.”
I’ve only said this about a million times (exaggerating of course!): To be a legitimate refugee one must claim that he or she would be persecuted for one of several reasons if the refugee claimant should return (or be forced to return) to his or her home country.
The wannabe refugee makes that claim and is then processed by the UN which arranges resettlement to a third country!
Imagine my surprise to see this news that gives me the rare opportunity to praise the United Nations!
