UN admits ‘refugees’ are ‘replacement migration’ for Europe and other low-fertility countries

For those of us who’ve long suspected there’s a hidden agenda behind the invasion of “refugees” and “migrants” in Europe, here’s the smoking gun.

In 2000, the United Nations’ Department of Economic and Social Affairs issued a report, Replacement Migration: Is It a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations?, which proposes “replacement migration” for countries with an aging and declining population.

Below is the UN’s press release on the report, dated March 17, 2000 — that’s how long ago the “refugee” and “migrant” plan was hatched.

NEW REPORT ON REPLACEMENT MIGRATION ISSUED BY UN POPULATION DIVISION

NEW YORK, 17 March (DESA) — The Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) has released a new report titled “Replacement Migration: Is it a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations?”. Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would need to prevent population decline and population ageing resulting from low fertility and mortality rates.

United Nations projections indicate that between 1995 and 2050, the population of Japan and virtually all countries of Europe will most likely decline. In a number of cases, including Estonia, Bulgaria and Italy, countries would lose between one quarter and one third of their population. Population ageing will be pervasive, bringing the median age of population to historically unprecedented high levels. For instance, in Italy, the median age will rise from 41 years in 2000 to 53 years in 2050. The potential support ratio — i.e., the number of persons of working age (15-64 years) per older person — will often be halved, from 4 or 5 to 2.

Focusing on these two striking and critical trends, the report examines in detail the case of eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union). In each case, alternative scenarios for the period 1995-2050 are considered, highlighting the impact that various levels of immigration would have on population size and population ageing.

Major findings of this report include:

— In the next 50 years, the populations of most developed countries are projected to become smaller and older as a result of low fertility and increased longevity. In contrast, the population of the United States is projected to increase by almost a quarter. Among the countries studied in the report, Italy is projected to register the largest population decline in relative terms, losing 28 per cent of its population between 1995 and 2050, according to the United Nations medium variant projections. The population of the European Union, which in 1995 was larger than that of the United States by 105 million, in 2050, will become smaller by 18 million.

— Population decline is inevitable in the absence of replacement migration. Fertility may rebound in the coming decades, but few believe that it will recover sufficiently in most countries to reach replacement level in the foreseeable future.

Some immigration is needed to prevent population decline in all countries and regions examined in the report. However, the level of immigration in relation to past experience varies greatly. For the European Union, a continuation of the immigration levels observed in the 1990s would roughly suffice to prevent total population from declining, while for Europe as a whole, immigration would need to double. The Republic of Korea would need a relatively modest net inflow of migrants — a major change, however, for a country which has been a net sender until now. Italy and Japan would need to register notable increases in net immigration. In contrast, France, the United Kingdom and the United States would be able to maintain their total population with fewer immigrants than observed in recent years.

— The numbers of immigrants needed to prevent the decline of the total population are considerably larger than those envisioned by the United Nations projections. The only exception is the United States.

— The numbers of immigrants needed to prevent declines in the working-age population are larger than those needed to prevent declines in total population. In some cases, such as the Republic of Korea, France, the United Kingdom or the United States, they are several times larger. If such flows were to occur, post-1995 immigrants and their descendants would represent a strikingly large share of the total population in 2050 — between 30 and 39 per cent in the case of Japan, Germany and Italy.

— Relative to their population size, Italy and Germany would need the largest number of migrants to maintain the size of their working-age populations. Italy would require 6,500 migrants per million inhabitants annually and Germany, 6,000. The United States would require the smallest number — 1,300 migrants per million inhabitants per year.

— The levels of migration needed to prevent population ageing are many times larger than the migration streams needed to prevent population decline. Maintaining potential support ratios would in all cases entail volumes of immigration entirely out of line with both past experience and reasonable expectations.

— In the absence of immigration, the potential support ratios could be maintained at current levels by increasing the upper limit of the working-age population to roughly 75 years of age.

— The new challenges of declining and ageing populations will require a comprehensive reassessment of many established policies and programmes, with a long-term perspective. Critical issues that need to be addressed include: (a) the appropriate ages for retirement; (b) the levels, types and nature of retirement and health care benefits for the elderly; (c) labour force participation; (d) the assessed amounts of contributions from workers and employers to support retirement and health care benefits for the elderly population; and (e) policies and programmes relating to international migration, in particular, replacement migration and the integration of large numbers of recent migrants and their descendants.

Note that, unlike Europe and other developed countries, the United States is a lone exception. Instead of population decline and ageing, our population is projected to increase by a quarter in the next 50 years.

That means America does not need to open our doors to immigrants, migrants and refugees. In fact, the UN report concludes that we only need to bring in 1,300 migrants per million inhabitants per year.

The U.S. population in 2018 is 327.16 million. That means that, at most, we need to bring in less than half a million (425,000) migrants a year — if even that.

DHS reveals number of MS-13 and other gang members released by demorat sanctuary policies

DACA

From Daily Mail: The Department of Homeland Security says that so-called sanctuary states shielded dozens of alleged MS-13 gang members from deportation during an eight-month period between 2016 and 2017.

The findings were provided to the Senate Judiciary Committee by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) – the federal agency responsible for deporting undocumented migrants illegal aliens.

According to ICE, two-thirds of the 142 suspected gang members that ICE wanted to deport were released in California.

The data was reported by the anti-immigrant (no bias there, Daily Mail) think tank Center for Immigration Studies.

California has a sanctuary policy that is considered one of the most progressive in the country. Sanctuary policies are local guidelines in which state and local authorities limit their cooperation with the federal government in enforcing immigration laws.

ICE says that the releases of the alleged MS-13 gang members took place in 37 local jurisdictions across 13 states. The most releases of alleged gang members – 22 – took place in Santa Clara County, California.

San Diego County leaders voted on Tuesday to join the Trump administration’s court challenge to California’s sanctuary law, amid a conservative backlash to the so-called sanctuary movement.

California moved to the forefront of political opposition to Republican President Donald Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration with enactment last year of the first statewide law aimed at restricting local law enforcement participation in federal deportation activity.

The measure bars state and local authorities from keeping undocumented immigrants illegal aliens who are incarcerated locked up any longer than otherwise necessary for the purpose of allowing US immigration agents to take them into custody.

It also prohibits police from routinely inquiring about the immigration status of people detained in an investigation or in traffic stops.

But the law, known as SB-54, allows local police to notify the federal government if they have arrested an undocumented immigrant illegal aliens with a felony record and permits immigration agents access to local jails.

The Trump administration has harshly criticized California’s law and similar sanctuary ordinances adopted by local governments across the country, saying they threaten public safety by protecting criminals who should to be deported.

Of the 37 jurisdictions that allegedly released MS 13 gang members, all but one of them – Maricopa County, Arizona – are sanctuary localities.

Authorities in Maryland have had to deal with the largest number of suspected MS 13 figures. ICE figures show that Montgomery County released five MS-13 members while Prince George’s County released four.

Between 2012 and 2018, 84 alleged MS-13 members were arrested for gang-related activity.

Illegal alien bus driver in Louisiana crash that killed three sentenced to 15 years in prison

illegal amaya rodriguez

Not nearly enough time for his crime.

From WDSU.com:  (EDGAR, La) — Denis Amaya-Rodriguez was sentenced Monday (April 9) to 15 years in prison for killing three people.

Rodriguez was driving a bus that crashed into a group of firefighters and multiple vehicles on the Interstate 10 bridge in LaPlace on Aug. 28, 2016. St. John District Fire Chief Spencer Chauvin, Jermaine Starr and Vontarous Kelly were all killed. Starr and Kelly were passengers in a car that was crushed by the bus. Chauvin died after being thrown over the bridge, along with two other firefighters who were seriously injured.

One of the two surviving firefighters testified at trial.

Amaya-Rodriguez was sentenced Monday to five years in prison on each count of negligent homicide, which is the maximum sentence. In an unusual move, the judge ordered the sentences be served consecutively, sending Rodriguez to prison for 15 years, minus credit for time served. He was also ordered to pay a $5,000 fine and court costs.

Judge Sterling Snowdy told Rodriguez he posed too great a risk to the community to be released sooner.

At the sentencing hearing, a video of Chauvin’s two children, ages 8 and 6 was played for the judge, in which they talked about time they spent with their father and his favorite things. Chauvin’s son honored his father’s public service as a firefighter, and said, “The call he died in, he blocked the two other people. They survived, and he is in a better place.”

Chauvin’s widow, Jennifer, brought the courtroom to tears delivering an emotional and detailed statement. She recalled having to tell her son about the crash. He was 6 years old at the time. Jennifer said, “’There’s been an accident,’ and I told him he’s never coming home again.”

She said it has been 1 year, 7 months and 13 days since Chauvin was killed and that their lives will never be the same.

“No matter how many years he gets, consecutive, concurrent, you know we have to live the rest of our lives without my husband, their son, her brother. My kids don’t have a father, so to me the sentence doesn’t matter, because my sentence, our sentence, is greater than any sentence he could ever get,” Chauvin said.

Rodriguez did not testify at his trial, but did address the judge, through an interpreter, before sentencing.

Rodriguez said, “I don’t consider myself truthfully guilty, but I do need to obey the laws.” He also talked about his faith and said he feels very bad for what happened.

During the trial in January, prosecutors argued that Rodriguez could have stopped the bus but didn’t. According to authorities, Rodriguez is an immigrant without legal permission to be in the country illegal alien. He will face deportation after he is released from prison.

“After a conviction for negligent homicide, an individual would be subject to immediate removal,” Thomas Byrd, with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said when Rodriguez was convicted.

Rodriguez still faces more than 40 outstanding misdemeanor charges related to the crash. Snowdy set a status hearing on those charges for May 14.

The site of the crash was dedicated to Spencer Chauvin in March and renamed the Spencer Chauvin Memorial Bridge.

“Our department made a promise that we will never forget Spencer or the sacrifices he has made for our community, and together, with his family and friends and the Parish President, we are keeping that promise,” said St. John Parish Office of Fire Services Chief of Operations, Cain Dufrene. “Spencer was a remarkable firefighter and selfless servant, and it is only fitting that we memorialize him near the scene where he gave his life. We hope that everyone driving in and out of our Parish thinks of Spencer when they see that sign and his heroic dedication to St. John and the Fire Department.”

Second Amendment rallies across America: FOTM’s Stovepipe reports from Connecticut!

On Saturday, April 14, 2018, thousands of Americans — many carrying rifles and ammunition — peacefully gathered at state capitols across the United States to reassert our constitutional Second Amendment right to bear arms against recent efforts to pass gun-control laws. See:

In 2008, the Supreme Court ruled 5:4 that the Second Amendment applies to individuals, not militias, and may include military weapons.

Thousands of patriots were at the rally in Hartford, Connecticut. Below is a first-person report and photos from FOTM reader Stovepipe, the commenter formerly known as Bob:

Joining many other rallies in state capitols across America, we held a Pro-2nd Amendment Rally at the State Capitol Building in Hartford, Connecticut, on Saturday, April 14, 2018. The rally was organized and hosted by CCDL (Connecticut Citizens Defense League).

The local Mainstream Media said the rally drew hundreds. But I can attest to approximately 3,000 patriots in attendance at the peak of the rally.

It was a great day. The whole event went off without a single problem. Even the weather was perfect — truly a memorable event.

The rally had all the characteristics of a Trump rally, a love fest of sorts. Most of the attendees were open carrying. There were no anti-gun rights protesters, not one. Even the police engaged the crowd with like minded, friendly conversation: I can personally attest to their pro-Second Amendment attitude.

At one point, I almost forgot I was in blue-state Connecticut!

Almost everyone I spoke with was wide awake, on issues from the Parkland school shooting to the communist coup d’êtat by “Progressives” within America’s borders.

The NRA had speakers come up from Washington, DC. Six local gubernatorial contenders spoke in reference to Connecticut’s upcoming Governor’s race, each making a boat load of campaign promises as usual. We have an unprecedented number of gubernatorial candidates this year: 12 declared, 4 potential, 5 have declined, and 1 has withdrawn.

Connecticut is in a fiscal free-fall, destroyed by the Democrats, especially by the widely-loathed two-term governor, Dannel Malloy. Connecticut is not only dead broke, we are so far in debt that our bond rating has been lowered.

But the Democrats continue to spend money we don’t have to build a new (third) casino; a new  stadium — a construction debacle that is already a failure; and a new rail system from Massachusetts to New York, with 40-year-old train cars that Connecticut will lease from Massachusetts. Highway tolls are being implemented; walking trails and bike lanes are built. Taxpayers are forced to pay for a whole new renovation project at the failing XL Center in downtown Hartford — an attempt to resuscitate the old Civic Center with a roof that had collapsed back in 1978.

Spend, spend, spend. They’re bankrupting the state by design.

Connecticut is also a sanctuary state, thanks to our liberal, Progressive, socialist governor. In addition to illegals getting driver’s licenses, in-state college tuition, and free health care, Governor Malloy is now considering Voting by Mail. At the same time, the state is phasing out early voting. Our own governor appears to hate his state and its citizens, reminiscent of Barack Obama’s animus against America.

But on Saturday, hundreds of patriots — men and women, young and old — showed Malloy and all the Leftists that we, the hard working, gun toting, Bible clinging, deplorable taxpayers of Connecticut have a voice, and it was loud.

The rally made me proud to be a U.S. Army veteran.

Sincerely,

Stovepipe

Fellowship of the Minds thanks Stovepipe for his report and for his service to our country.

German women resort to modern chastity-belts against Muslim rapists

Women in the medieval ages wore metal chastity belts to preserve their chastity.

A German company has invented the 21st century version of chastity belts — Safe Shorts that scream.

Sputnik News reports that a company based in the German city of Oberhausen invented Safe Shorts –sweatpants made of very sturdy fabric highly resistant to slashing and tearing, along with some other defense mechanisms designed to protect its wearer against sexual assaults.

Safe Shorts’ creator Sandra Seilz told Sputnik Deutschland that she has been thinking about creating a garment like this for quite some time.

She said that some time ago, a trio of men stopped her while she was jogging and attempted to pull her pants off. Seilz was spurred into action by that incident, as well as the news of sexual assaults against women during the 2015/2016 New Year’s Eve celebration in Cologne and across Germany, in which 1,200 women were sexually assaulted by at least 2,000 men (Muslim rapefugees), often acting in groups.

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fschutzhose%2Fvideos%2F663402693839921%2F&show_text=0&width=560

Seilz said “Safe Shorts provide triple protection against sexual assaults, and we’re very proud of them.” The pants have three defense mechanisms designed to thwart a would-be rapist’s advances:

  1. The pants’ drawstrings are very resistant to slashing and tearing, and their design ensures that they can’t be easily untied by the assailant or allow him to pull off the pants without untying them.
  2. Tampering with the pants prompts the garment to let out an extremely loud acoustic signal (130 dB) meant to scare off the assailant and alert everyone in the vicinity; the wearer can also trigger the signal herself by sharply pulling the pants’ drawstrings.
  3. A soft protector in the crotch region prevents a potential assailant from tearing the pants between the wearer’s legs.

A pair of Safe Shorts costs 149 euros ($184), but there’s a cheaper model for everyday use priced at 99 euros ($122).

Safe Shorts are becoming popular not only in Germany but also abroad. Seilz’s company has received orders from Japan, Finland, Sweden, Italy, Taiwan and the United States.

About those “child” refugees in Britain: Two-thirds quizzed about their age are found to be adults

immigrants with selfie

Shocker, not.

From Daily Mail: Nearly two-thirds of ‘child’ refugees who were questioned about their real age after coming to Britain were found to be adults, an official report has found. In one year, 65 per cent of asylum seekers assessed after claiming to be juveniles were judged to be over 18.

The report, by immigration watchdog David Bolt, revealed that the Home Office received 2,952 asylum applications from unaccompanied children in the year to June last year.

Out of these there were 705 age disputes – around a quarter of the total – where officials suspected the individual was lying about their age. Of these, 618 cases were resolved and 402 – or 65 percent – were found to be adults.

If these asylum seekers had been treated as children it would have left councils and local taxpayers facing a care bill of millions of pounds a year.

The statistics come amid concern that Britain’s generosity towards genuine child victims of war, terror and humanitarian disasters is being abused.

The figures were published in a report by Mr. Bolt, the independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration, into the Home Office’s treatment of lone child migrants.

They relate to young migrants with neither parents nor carers who have sneaked into Britain stowed away in trains, lorries and ships and then claimed asylum.

If a refugee does not have a birth certificate or other travel documents, a Home Office screening officer must decide whether or not they are a child based on their ‘physical appearance and demeanour’.

Unless the person appears ‘significantly’ over 18, they should be ‘afforded the benefit of the doubt and treated as children’ until they are age-assessed by local council social workers, official rules state.

This is to avoid the risk of a child migrant accidentally being placed in adult accommodation or detention. But on some occasions it meant adults were treated as children, potentially posing a risk to school pupils, foster families or children in care.

Home Office figures reveal that there have been 12,942 disputes over the ages of child asylum seekers since 2006, with 5,965 – around 46 per cent – found to be over 18 in this period.

Mr. Bolt’s report said Home Office staff ‘did not feel confident about making initial age assessments of applicants claiming to be children, particularly judging whether the claimant was “significantly over 18” and should be entered into the adult process’.

It added: ‘They received no training to help them make such judgments. Some local authorities were concerned that the Home Office applied its “benefit of the doubt” policy too readily, and highlighted the risks of wrongly placing an adult with children in their care.’

Reacting to the figures, Tory MP Tim Loughton, a member of the Commons home affairs select committee, said: ‘This has been a problem for some time. We have been a soft touch in too many cases for asylum seekers who abuse our hospitality by elaborating their credentials. It is right we give a safe haven to those who are in danger but too often we have been too trusting.

A row flared in October 2016 amid concern that some adult refugees were lying about their ages to gain entry to Britain.

There were calls for the Home Office to take action after mature-looking ‘child migrants’ were among those who arrived in the UK from the squalid Jungle camp in Calais to be reunited with relatives as part of a resettlement programme.

Jack Straw, the Labour former home secretary, led demands for more accurate age tests.

Some critics said dental checks should be introduced. Officials insisted all the migrants were aged under 18. But some looked several years older, with crow’s feet and flecks of grey hair.

Computer analysis of photographs of some of the migrants suggested many could be in their 20s and 30s. The facial recognition software written by Microsoft, even suggested one migrant was 38.

Ministers have ruled out using medical tests, including dental checks, to assess the age of migrants. Citing guidance by the Dental Medical Association, they say tests of teeth are ‘inaccurate, inappropriate and unethical’.

But Britain is one of only three EU countries not to use medical checks to verify the age of child asylum seekers. The others are Ireland and Cyprus. Every other nation calls in doctors, dentists or psychologists to root out adults who are abusing the asylum system by pretending to be children.

A Home Office spokesman said: ‘After consultation with stakeholders we published revised guidance on age assessments and we have committed to produce more child-friendly information in a range of languages to help children better understand the asylum system.’
