UN Demands US Give Refugee Status To Illegal Aliens

From a cheering Associated Press:

UN pushes for migrants to be called refugees

By ALBERTO ARCE and MARCOS ALEMAN | July 7, 2014

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) — United Nations officials are pushing for many of the Central Americans fleeing to the U.S. to be treated as refugees displaced by armed conflict, a designation meant to increase pressure on the United States to accept tens of thousands of people currently ineligible for asylum.

It is so touching that the UN is so concerned about the United States. They are always offering to monitor our elections. And they have even recently offered to help the denizens of Detroit pay their water bills. And now we have them trying to help us with our border crisis.

Officials with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees say they hope to see a regional agreement on that status Thursday when migration and interior department representatives from the U.S., Mexico, and Central America meet in Nicaragua. The group will discuss updating a 30-year-old declaration regarding the obligations nations have to aid refugees.

Samantha Powers will jump at the chance to sign this resolution. And, of course, Obama, too.

While such a resolution would lack any legal weight in the United States, the agency said it believes "the U.S. and Mexico should recognize that this is a refugee situation, which implies that they shouldn’t be automatically sent to their home countries but rather receive international protection."

This is actually a great idea. Because if Mexico gives all of these illegal aliens ‘refugee’ status, then they will never make it to the US border. So this could be the solution to all of our problems.

Still, one might wonder, how come the UN doesn’t want to do anything to improve the situation in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala? And while they are at it, why doesn’t the UN take on the drug cartels and the gangs and the poverty down there? (Just kidding.)

Most of the people widely considered to be refugees by the international community are fleeing more traditional political or ethnic conflicts like those in Syria or the Sudan. Central Americans would be among the first modern migrants considered refugees because they are fleeing violence and extortion at the hands of criminal gangs.

In fact, they would be the first ‘refugees’ in the entire history of the world who are not fleeing a war. But that detail won’t faze the UN.

"Unaccompanied children and families who fear for their lives and freedoms must not be forcibly returned without access to proper asylum procedures," UNHCR official Leslie Velez said in testimony submitted to the House Judiciary Committee late last month…

Great. Maybe now the frightened denizens of Chicago, Detroit, Detroit and Phoenix will be able to apply for asylum in Switzerland.

During a recent visit to the U.S., Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez said migrants from his country were "displaced by war" and called on the United States to acknowledge that.

He’s half right. We are at war with the countries to our south who are encouraging this invasion. And it is time for the US to acknowledge that.

  1. “Criminal alien” is more accurate. Calling these people “undocumented immigrants” is like describing a home invader as a “surprise houseguest.”

    It was bound to happen.

    Everyone hates a winner, whether that winner got to the top by playing fair, beating all comers in fair fights or by otherwise, unfair means, as believed by the interior leftists or the exterior opponents who’ve boogered up their chances by keeping their own lands a cesspool of corruption and preferential socialism.

    So, it was bound to happen. The exterior forces and interior enemies would combine to figure out how to unseat the good-thing-going and tear it down so that nobody’s happy or successful except a small minority of scummy liars who give bread and circuses to the masses, thinking that will tame them and allow them to remain in office and keep their cushy lifestyles–As it will for a time.

    But not forever.

    It appears that the great experiment in self-government is at an end, if not being sorely tested to see if it can withstand a multi-front attack. The chaos theory does seem to be holding up well, as forwarded by Messrs Cloward and Piven. President Angrychild is applying his tantrum ops well, and with the help of third-worlders who hate the US and though they don’t really want anything we have, it’s “just plain fun” to destroy the goose that lays the golden egg.

    ‘Course they can’t seem to understand that the golden eggs stop coming in the form of millions of US dollars when the US stops being able to provide tax dollars to them. But maybe that satisfies them because the US will then be “just like them” in terms of individual wealth.

    I think it’s a given that in both the macro and micro-scale, that people despise winners so much they would truly cut off their own noses to spite their face, all the while exclaiming it’s “justice” and “fairness”. Then they have a brief five seconds of smug satisfaction but fail to notice that by destroying that which is nice, it has not improved their own lot.

    On a personal level I have seen this very thing. Those with whom I worked who despised me for getting ahead and achieving large goals who damaged my property, or harmed me personally….This one facet of human behavior is very, very odd to me. I played by the rules, didn’t hurt anyone; didn’t ridicule of belittle anyone else for not wanting the same things that I did but nonetheless, a few were absolutely livid that I achieved something.

    Perhaps, then, I might understand that British arrogance about class and why they look down their noses at “lessers”. The contempt that I felt was immense and constant.

    So, it’s no wonder to me that the rest of the world, as it languishes in poverty and doesn’t produce anything that anyone else can use …and oddly the producers are now in China, utilizing the western-world culture invention of mass-production, but the rest of the world, immersed in pathetic group-think and believing that only a select few should be lifted to higher status (based solely on popularity and ability to BS everyone, rather than actual ability), well…we have arrived at our current situation.

    Stolen elections (and yes, I believe that they have been badly manipulated so as to be considered stolen), brazen lying, all out political warfare on matters of miniscule importance, constant badgering by the sycophantic media, all with the goal of bringing about socialism so that everything is “fair”.

    It’s sublime in its implications and direct correlations. And, as it turns out, I just have to understand that people, when terrified of thinking for themselves, are truly stupid animals who prefer to be manipulated and then patted on the head by those whom they consider to be “superiors”.

    I am inferior to no one. Yet I am happy to be humble in the face of greater wisdom, experience and kindness. But I serve no other human-being. I serve the Almighty and only He. I work with other people….I will never humble myself before my boss, he is not my lord and master, he is just my boss. I do not politic; I do not waste time with pleasantries, I will not lie to make things work or cover over incompetence.

    Thus, I do not belong in today’s society; as in any other, where BS replaces honesty and integrity. I am an outcast because I don’t drink anyone’s kool-aide. I will not praise anyone unless I feel they are praise-worthy. If you ask my opinion, I will give it to you but don’t you DARE get upset when you don’t hear what you wanted.

    It cost me my military career and I found that people don’t really like honesty, in spite of Billy Joel’s laments to the contrary. They want strokes, they want trinkets and empty accolades. In Col. Nathan R. Jessup’s words, “They can’t handle the truth.”

    So I spend more time solo and have found many things I enjoy doing while alone.

    So call me a misanthrope, if you will, but I sleep just fine.

    And I demand that the UN get out of the USA.
    And I demand that the USA get out of the UN.
    And I demand that the USA get out of funding any nation that does not fully embrace our nation.
    And I demand that all illegals be air mailed to any southerly direction. Trebuchet anyone? (really, trebuchet was not in the browser dictionary? sad.)
