France should take more refugees in to help with migrant crisis, says Presidential hopeful

French Presidential candidate Benoit Hamon

Apparently Hamon believes this is a successful strategy to winning.

From Express UK: Left-winger Benoît Hamon urged EU leaders – including Socialist president François Hollande – to treat Europe-bound refugees fleeing war and persecution in a “humane and just” way. 

Speaking at a rally in Bordeaux on Wednesday, he said: “Government officials have given France-bound refugees the cold shoulder when in fact, they should be doing a lot more to protect them.”  Most immigrants undertake “incredibly perilous journeys” to reach European soil, he warned, before adding that France could take in “more refugees”.

He said: “We must renegotiate the Dublin rules that dictate that asylum seekers must stay in the first European country they step foot in.  They are unnecessary and counterproductive. We must also issue more humanitarian visas so that vulnerable refugees can travel to Europe in safe and decent conditions.”

At the beginning of the EU migrant crisis in 2015, Mr. Hollande pledged to offer sanctuary to 24,000 migrants, but has failed to live up to this promise: since then, no more than 10,000 refugees have been granted asylum in France.

He said: “I’m not saying that we have to find beds for one million refugees overnight. We’re talking about tens of thousands of people. France is the world’s fifth most powerful country, it can afford to take in a handful of desperate refugees.”

Mr. Hamon also shone a harsh spotlight on France’s “poor and inhumane” migrant integration policy, which he says is “not up to scratch”. He said: “Refugees should be able to work within three months of arriving in France. We need to help them take a shot at a new life, but first, we must help them integrate into society. The only solution to the migrant crisis is solidarity.

Arizona Republicans move to ban social justice courses and events at schools

bob-thorpe

State Representative Bob Thorpe introduced this bill.

The SJWs are adamant that this is a way to shut down their voices. Ironic since they love to shut down any conservative/opposing voices. Hypocrites.

From The Guardian: Republican lawmakers in Arizona are pushing to prohibit school courses and events that promote ethnic studies and social justice, with legislation that critics say broadly targets academic freedom and students of color.

The newly introduced bill – which seeks to build on an existing GOP-backed law that banned a Mexican American studies class – marks the latest attack in academia on activism and research centered on marginalized groups. Some opponents said the proposal is part of a national trend, tied to the election of Donald Trump, of lawmakers working to suppress progressive organizations and protests.

The bill, from state representative Bob Thorpe, would prohibit “courses, classes, events and activities” in public schools that promote “social justice toward a race, gender, religion, political affiliation, social class or other class of people”. Courses and events that are “designed primarily for pupils of a particular ethnic group” or advocate “solidarity” based on ethnicity, race, religion or gender would also be banned.

“This really challenges a bedrock foundation of what it means to be involved in the academy,” said Rashad Shabazz, head faculty in the program of justice and social inquiry at Arizona State University. “It really puts a target on people of color and various academic fields that have emerged out of struggle.”

The proposal comes at a time in which the polarizing presidential election has fueled intense debates surrounding first amendment rights and academic freedom in American universities. In recent months, conservative groups on campuses across the US have launched coordinated attacks against professors and courses that promote liberal ideologies or challenge traditional views on race and gender.

In Wisconsin, a Republican senator recently attacked an undergraduate program focused on “unpacking masculinity”, which the lawmaker called a “war on men”. Lawmakers there have also threatened to cut funding over a race relations course called The Problem of Whiteness and a reading assignment about gay men’s sexual preferences that a legislator said was “offensive”.

The University of California, Berkeley, last year cancelled a course examining Palestine “through the lens of settler colonialism” following an outcry from pro-Israel groups, but later reinstated the class.

Meanwhile, some universities have faced scrutiny from progressive activists for allowing white nationalists and leaders of the “alt-right” – a far-right movement in the US – who promote hate speech to speak on campus.

Thorpe’s bill is particularly far-reaching in its targeting of social justice organizing and ethnic studies, said Martín Quezada, a Democratic state senator, and has prompted an outcry on Arizona campuses. “Our students are terrified that their freedom of speech, their freedom of thought and their ability to learn about issues and think at a higher level is in jeopardy now,” he said. “The scariest part of this bill is that the impacts are so broad.”

Thorpe declined the Guardian’s interview request, but told Tucson.com he wanted to target an ASU course called Whiteness and Race Theory, as well as a university event called a “privilege walk”, where students are supposed to reflect on their race and privilege.

The legislation, which says a violation would allow the state to cut 10% of a district’s funding, would not prohibit courses that cover the “accurate history of any ethnic group” and allows for teachings on the holocaust or “any other instance of genocide”.

But Katt McKinney, organizer with Black Lives Matter in Arizona, said it seemed obvious that the language of the bill was targeting groups like hers that fight for racial justice. “They want to shut it down,” she said. “This is a direct attack on the constitutional rights of citizens.”

The state’s 2010 law banning a specific Mexican American studies program in Tucson has been the subject of lengthy litigation and targeted a course that was proven to be effective for students, according to Quezada.

The Arizona school boards association said it opposes Thorpe’s bill because the state should not have control over school content. “It should be up to each district what kind of curriculum should be approved,” said spokeswoman Heidi Vega.

Though Arizona has a history of these kinds of proposals, Shabazz said he felt that Trump’s victory and the GOP wins in November have emboldened Republican lawmakers to aggressively target the work of minorities. “By attempting to legislate against certain types of activities that focus on people of color, women or social justice issues,” he added, “it really undermines the ability of the university to function as a space of intellectual engagement and debate.”

Sweden’s leading shopping mall is deemed a no-go zone, with police blaming gangs of migrants

rapefugees

Aint’ multi-culturalism grand?

From Daily Mail: Sweden’s leading shopping mall has been deemed a no-go zone amid a spike in violence police say has been caused by unaccompanied migrants.  Police are on high alert patrolling the Nordstan mall in Gothenburg after a spate of incidents involving staff and shoppers being threatened by gangs. In some cases, the number of youngsters outnumber the police and the rise in the sinister behaviour has seen the sales take a hit.

Many shoppers are now afraid to even visit the complex, according to RT, and even officers are being threatened by the gangs.  ‘We have seen an increase since last autumn, with mostly unaccompanied minors who are staying here in Nordstan,’ one of the police managers, Jonas Bergqvist, told Expressen. ‘In the evening they deal drugs and violence between fractions sometimes occurs. If there are conflicts from their home countries, they bring them here.’

The trouble appears to start at around 8pm – the time shops shut for the day – when groups of up to 150 teens descend upon the mall.   Police say the rise coincides with the increased number of unaccompanied migrants entering the country. A number of those involved are said to be youths from Syria, Afghanistan and Morocco, according to RT.

Among the alarming incidents include a youngster and a shopkeeper who were robbed with a broken class held to their throats. 

Added to the chaos is the fact that police are finding it increasingly difficult to charge the offenders due to the lack of identification, meaning the teenagers are merely handed over to social services.

Officer Rikard Sorensen told RT: ‘I’ve had people in front of me that look like they are 35, but who claim to be 15. I can’t prove they’re lying so we have to release them,’ Rikard Sorensen, another officer.’

The troubles have seen the mall labeled a no-go zone, according to Expressen.   An area is listed as such if there have been dangerous cases of muggings, robberies, harassment, and sexual assault.

#BuildTheWall

From Fox News: Authorities in Southern California were searching for an illegal immigrant from El Salvador on Wednesday who is accused of sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl.

Fullerton police said Rigoberto Arevalo Cubias, 30, is suspected of engaging in sexual intercourse of sodomy with a child under the age of 10 years old after an investigation, which started in late December. Authorities believe Cubias might have a fraudulent California driver’s license, according to CBS Los Angeles.

Cubias also has an outstanding $50,000 arrest warrant from a 2014 DUI. Police say he goes under many different aliases, including Jose Cubias, Jose Cubias Arevalo, Jose Riberto Cubias and Jose Alfonso Cubias Arevalo. Investigators Cubias may have ditched his car and cellphone in an attempt to throw off police.

“Detectives believe that Cubias now knows he is wanted by police and he is on the run from law enforcement. He has discarded his previously owned vehicle and cellular phone in what Detectives believe is an attempt to elude capture,” police said in a news release.

He’s described as a Hispanic male, about 5-feet 7-inches tall, weighing 185 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information about Cubias is asked to call Fullerton police Det. Carin Wright at 714-738-6754.

More Libtard Butthurt: Multiple days of anti-Trump protests planned in Seattle

butthurt

The TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) is going to blow the BDS (Bush Derangement Syndrome) off the charts.

From MyNorthwest.com: Seattle voters did not come out in favor of President-elect Donald Trump during the last election. Protests erupted in the city after he defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton. Now that Trump is slated to take over the Oval Office on Jan. 20, people in Seattle plan to continue their opposition with a series of anti-Trump protests and events.

There are three major events planned and targeted at President-elect Trump.

Brothers and Sisters,

We don’t have a moment to waste in getting organized against Trump’s racist, misogynistic, anti-immigrant, anti-muslim, anti-lgbtq rhetoric, proposals, and cabinet members.

Join the Resist Trump Coalition and my office at City Hall to help build the biggest possible protests against Trump on January 20th and 21st.

Detailed information about the agenda for this meeting will be provided asap.

Solidarity! Kshama

The event specifically cites opposition to building a wall on the Mexican border, stopping the Dakota Access Pipeline, ending rape culture, and supporting Black Lives Matter. The Facebook event page reads:

The Democratic Party has proven they are incapable of stopping Trump. It is time to build a new party for the 99% based on the united power of all exploited and oppressed people, on movements for social and economic justice, on the belief that we CAN do better than this corrupt and rotten system!

#ResistTrump !! #OccupyInauguration !!

  • Jan. 21: The day after the inauguration, the “Women’s March on Seattle” is planned between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. for downtown Seattle. A route for the march has yet to be released, but the Facebook event page states it will be announced once approved by city officials. The women’s march is organized be four private citizens. As of Tuesday morning, the event has 29,000 people signed on for the Seattle march, with 41,000 more people interested in attending.

The event announcement reads:

In solidarity with the march taking place in Washington, DC, we will march in Seattle. ALL women, femme, trans, gender non-conforming, and feminist people (including men and boys) are invited to march. We are showing our support for the community members who have been marginalized by the recent election.

The Seattle women’s march is meant to coincide with the larger, national march on Washington D.C. that same day.

Judge rules Kate Steinle’s family can’t sue the city of San Francisco

kate-steinle-you-tube-screenshot

Murder victim Kate Steinle

About Joseph C. Spero, the judge who dismissed this case: “Chief Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero has presided as trial judge in criminal and civil cases in a variety of subject areas, including patent, employment, civil rights, commercial contract, trademark, and federal misdemeanor cases. He has also served as a settlement judge in over 1500 cases.”

From Daily Mail: The family of a woman allegedly killed by an illegal immigrant who was deported five times cannot sue the city of San Francisco, a judge ruled.

Kate Steinle, 32, was reportedly shot dead by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, 45, a Mexican national with a long criminal record who was allowed to remain in the country due to the city’s controversial sanctuary policies.

The Steinle family argued in a wrongful death suit that the city and former sheriff should be held responsible for her murder.  

Lawyers argued that if city officials had notified Immigration and Customs Enforcement when they released 7-time felon Lopez-Sanchez from prison in April of 2015, Kate’s death could have been avoided. 

‘Kate’s death was both foreseeable and preventable had the law enforcement agencies, officials and/or officers involved simply followed the laws, regulations and/or procedures which they swore to uphold,’ the lawsuit said.

However, Judge Joseph C. Spero dismissed their claims on Friday, according to KTLA.

He wrote: ‘No law required the Sheriff’s Department to share Lopez-Sanchez’s release date with ICE, nor did any law forbid Mirkarimi establishing a policy against such cooperation’.

Kate’s death caused an uproar when it occurred last year and became a rallying cry for Donald Trump’s immigration policies while on the campaign trail.

Sanctuary cities have no clear definition or geographic limit. They are scattered throughout the country and generally limit the ability of government workers to assist the federal government with immigration matters.

In San Francisco, the City and County of Refuge ordinance, passed in 1989, ‘prohibits city employees from helping federal immigration enforcement efforts unless compelled by court order or state law’, according to CNN.

The Steinle family may still have an opportunity to seek justice, as the judge allowed their case against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to continue. Lopez-Sanchez reportedly stole the gun he used to kill Kate from a BLM unattended vehicle.
