Clearly The Guardian doesn’t want to hear that bit of information.
Frankly, if there weren’t nine federal refugee contractors being paid on a per refugee head basis to bring refugees to your towns and cities, maybe then a realistic policy could be advanced to care for (legitimate) refugees near their homes so that returning them to their homes and to their familiar cultures would be the number one priority of humanitarian care.
Perhaps if this pattern could be broken now—Middle East wars=flow of migrants to the West—it would be a very important legacy for Trump to leave us with.
Trump and Haley could break the pattern! No more knee jerk admission of ‘refugees’ with every Middle East conflict.
HereNikki Haley says what the No Borders Left never wants to hear:
Donald Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations on Sunday defended the president’s ban on allowing Syrian refugees into the US by claiming that people displaced due to the country’s civil war did not actually want to leave the region.
When asked how she justified the Trump administration admitting almost no Syrian refugees while also bombing Assad regime targets in the country, Nikki Haley cited conversations she said she had had with refugees at camps in Jordan and Turkey.
“Not one of the many that I talked to ever said we want to go to America,” Haley said on Fox News Sunday. “They want to stay as close to Syria as they can.”
An advocate for persons seeking asylum from Central America, attorney John W. Allured (CA bar license #84770) spoke on Immigration and the Law at Christ Lutheran Church in Aptos, CA on Sunday, February 11, 2018.
Christ Lutheran Church in Aptos, CA supports the AMMPARO program. The church currently provides housing and other support for a family from El Salvador. The church may assist persons seeking refugee status via advocacy in the legal process as Guardian Angels.
AMMPARO was envisioned to accompany children today and in the future who are forced to flee their communities because of complex and interrelated reasons, including chronic violence, poverty, environmental displacement and lack of opportunities in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.
Some of attorney John Allured’s remarks and some questions that were asked:
“Most persons seeking asylum from the Triangle countries (San Salvador, Guatamala & Honduras) seek asylum due to “gang violence”.
Answer: “There are no mandatory bars to establishing a credible fear or persecution or torture. However, there are mandatory bars to asylum or withholding of removal. Th e asylum officer does not make a final decision whether you are subject to a mandatory bar to asylum or withholding of removal.Jul 15, 2015
If “credible fear” is found the case moves forward to “removal status”, the juvenille is then “placed” and the case goes before a judge.
“In 2016, 50% of mothers with children lacked counsel; of these, 90% were removed.
“The chances of defeating removal increased 5 times when migrant had counsel. So says Attorney Allured.
“How does ‘gang violence” fit into all this? If only “gang violence” you have to do your homework to establish that your case fits within one of five categories.
“Asylum is discretionary. You must show “good character” via employment, church membership, credible witnesses and that you are a deserving person.
There are two Hearings — The first one which is on the Master Calendar is open to the public.
Asylum applicants have no “right” to due process. San Francisco judges (the one he observed) bend over backwards so applicants can establish their case. In San Francisco (his experience),c ases are typically continued 5-6 times before moving on to”removal” status. Which judge hears the case — in what part of the US — matters significantly.
Church congregations can serve as “guardian angels”. There’s nothing to fear. It’s an informal process. Judges do not wear robes. The federal rules of evidence serve as a guide.
Questions asked during and after Mr. Allured’s presentation at Christ Lutheran church in Aptos, CA included:
What about economics? If a woman’s kids are starving is that a reason to establish asylum? Answer: No. You have to establish more than economic hardship. You have to show harm, that you were threatened, a family member killed.
What about domestic violence? Terrorizing woman is very frightening one attendee asked. Answer: There are avenues for women …
There are reports that persons who enter illegally do not show up for their first court appearance. Know anything about that? Attorney Allurd replied that he did not know about no shows for court appearances. [One report states that 135,000 go missing and do not show up.]
After the presentation persons attending were encouraged to meet each other.
Take Away message: Per this presentation, you better get an attorney if you are from Central America seeking asylum. Persons seeking asylum in the U.S. have no legal right to representation.
Concerning gang violence, Monterey County (Salinas, CA is the county seat) is ranked as the youth homicide capital of California for four out of the past five years. Gang violence is continually in the news. California has its own gang related problems.
People are not fleeing California for Central America because of ‘gang violence’. That there is economic opportunity, freedom and rule by law here in the U.S. draws people here. Legally and illegally. People who come need to follow the U.S.A. immigration laws that are in place.

Migrants allowed to remain in Switzerland because they risk death in their homelands are using welfare money to fund holidays back home in Eritrea. That’s wht theBasler Zeitungreports.
The Swiss newspapernotesthat thousands of migrants each year go to Eritrea for their holidays each year — despite their having supposedly fled the northeast African nation in fear of their lives.
Although a large proportion of Eritreans in Switzerland have been refused asylum, authorities are powerless to deport them because their homelands are deemed to be too dangerous by the country’s refugee policy.
While there are no direct flights to Eritrea, the Basler Zeitung says it found that up to fifty people a day are leaving Switzerland in order to holiday in the African country.
It typically costs around 599 Swiss Francs (£475) in January or 650 Swiss Francs (£516) in high season for a return journey to Eritrea according to the German language daily.
The paper notes that taxpayer stipends to migrants must be quite generous as the vast majority of Eritreans residing in Switzerland live on welfare.
Firenze Sage: Has the whole world gone nuts? This scam is standard fare now. Taxpayer funded holidays to alleged war zones.
Create jobs? Hire a Syrian and get him off welfare. Maybe.
Bill Clinton wants the U.S. to hire Syrian refugees to rebuild Detroit. Detroit has a housing problem.
That’s from a video made via the Clinton Global Initiative.
Hilary wants Bill in charge. And Hilary’s goal is to re-locate to Detroit almost as many Syrians as the population of Detroit.
About the Syrian migrant crisis Bill Clinton said: “The truth is that the big loser in this over the long run is going to be Syria. This is an enormous opportunity for Americans,”
Detroit has 10,000 empty, structurally sound houses—10,000. And lot of jobs to be had repairing those houses. Detroit just came out of bankruptcy and the mayor’s trying to do an innovative sort of urban homesteading program there.
But it just gives you an example of what could be done. And I think any of us who have ever had any personal experience with either Syrian Americans or Syrian refugees think it’s a pretty good deal.
Hillary Clinton has called for a 550 percent expansion to the importation of Syrian refugees.
Clinton did not mention the fact that, in the United States, 91.4 percent of recent refugees from the Middle East are on food stamps, and 68.3 percent are on cash welfare, according to data from the Office of Refugee Resettlement in the Department of Health and Human Services.
Firenze Sage: Hillary’s answer to the job problem is to put Bill in charge. Whata girl!!
