Women born and raised elsewhere –whose husband beats them up — can seek and get ‘refugee status’ in the USA. How long will that continue?
We grant ‘refugee status” because of a law Clinton got passed — 45 CFR 400.301 This law applies to foreign born persons seeking refugee status.
USA Attorney General Sessions is deciding yes or no on this issue. The case Sessions is deciding involves a case of domestic abuse brought by a woman from El Salvador. She seeks “refugee status” here.
Big bucks are involved in this decision.
The current USA law — passed by President Clinton –gives lifetime entitlement of all federal programs to refugees. 45 CFR 400.301.
This gives a lifetime entitlement for refugees who become citizens. Currently, contractors can continue to deposit refugees where they choose regardless of state objection.
When Obama increased the Refugee admission quota in 2017 to 111,000 four states withdrew. But the numbers of refugees that actually settled in those states did not decline. That’s because of CFR 400.301.
Currently the resettlement programs are on automatic pilot without the States able to say no effectively.
If you think that freedoms for Americans — including the right not to be beaten by your husband — should be protected without extending that USA right world wide …. then petition your government to abolish CFR 400.301
President Trump lowered the immigration quota to 45,000. The next President could increase it to 250,000. It’s time that citizens of the USA spoke up and get control of how many “refugees” are allowed in and on what basis refugees will be admitted.
The USA can and should seek to strengthen women’s rights abroad. And we can and should be be a beacon of freedom world wide.
