Thousands of illegal immigrants who fled to Canada in fear of Trump are trapped in legal limbo

From Daily Mail: Thousands of people who fled to Canada to escape President Donald Trump‘s crackdown on illegal migrants have become trapped in legal limbo because of an overburdened refugee system, struggling to find work, permanent housing or enroll their children in schools.

Refugee claims are taking longer to be completed than at any time in the past five years, according to previously unpublished Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) data provided to Reuters.  Those wait times are set to grow longer after the IRB in April allocated ‘up to half’ of its 127 tribunal members to focus on old cases.

The number of delayed hearings more than doubled from 2015 to 2016 and is on track to increase again this year.

Hearings are crucial to establishing a claimant´s legal status in Canada. Without that status, they struggle to convince employers to hire them or landlords to rent to them.  Claimants cannot access loans or student financial aid, or update academic or professional credentials to meet Canadian standards.

Canada’s refugee system was struggling to process thousands of applications even before 3,500 asylum seekers began crossing the U.S. border on foot in January. It lacks the manpower to complete security screenings for claimants and hear cases in a timely manner.

Often there are not enough tribunal members to decide cases or interpreters to attend hearings, the IRB said. More than 4,500 hearings scheduled in the first four months of 2017 were cancelled, according to the IRB data.

The government is now focused on clearing a backlog of about 24,000 claimants, including people who filed claims in 2012 or earlier.

That means more than 15,000 people who have filed claims so far this year, including the new arrivals from the United States, will have to wait even longer for their cases to be heard.

Asylum cases are already taking longer to finalize, on average, than at any time since Canada introduced a statutory two-month time limit in 2012. This year, it has been taking 5.6 months on average, compared to 3.6 months in 2013.

Mohamed Daud, 36, left his family and a pending refugee claim in the United States and walked into Canada in February after hearing rumors of U.S. immigration raids.

Daud, originally from Somalia, had been living and working legally in Nebraska but feared he would be detained and then deported at an upcoming check-in with immigration officials. His May 8 hearing with a Canadian refugee tribunal was cancelled three days beforehand. He has not been given a new date.

‘I don´t know when they will call me. I can´t work. It isn’t easy,’ said Daud. While waiting for a work permit, he gets approximately C$600 ($453) a month in government social assistance and shares a room in an apartment with six other asylum seekers.

Still, Daud doesn’t regret abandoning his life in the United States. ‘The worry, the fear is the same,’ he said.

To try to speed cases through, Canada’s refugee tribunal has put people from certain war-torn countries such as Syria and Yemen on an expedited track that requires no hearings.

Border agents are working overtime to address the backlog in security screenings, said Scott Bardsley, spokesman for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, who oversees the Canada Border Services Agency.

Asylum claimants are eligible for work permits while awaiting hearings, but employers are often reluctant to employ people with temporary social insurance numbers whose future is uncertain, refugee lawyers told Reuters. ‘How do you establish yourself when your status is unknown?’ said Toronto-based lawyer Aadil Mangalji.

This year is on track to be the highest year for refugee claims since at least 2011, according to government statistics.

The stresses on the Canadian system mirror those of other countries with an open door policy. In Sweden, rising financial strains involved in resettlement were partly behind a move to introduce tough asylum laws.

Honduran Raul Contreras, 19, who walked across the Quebec border in March and whose hearing has been postponed indefinitely, is staying in a government-subsidized Toronto hotel with his mother, step-father and uncle.

Contreras, who spends his days at a local library or working out in the hotel gym, says he has been repeatedly rejected by landlords. ‘They just said that they didn’t rent places to refugee claimants,’ he said. ‘(They) said that refugees don’t have jobs and probably wouldn’t pay.’

Shocker, not: Sex Crimes by German Migrants Double In One Year

islam-is-the-answer

Expect this trend to continue because Angela Merkel doesn’t care that her citizens are being raped by the migrants she loves so much.

From HeatStreet: Sex crimes committed by migrants in Germany have doubled in a single year, according to a new report. Both the rate and number of offenses shot up as the country continues to struggle with the effects of Europe’s migrant crisis and Germany’s welcoming stance towards refugees.

A report issued by the German government, and based on official police statistics, said that in 2016 there were 3,404 sex crimes involving migrants (defined as refugees, asylum seekers or other recent arrivals with no right to be in Germany).

The figure in 2015 was 1,683, and has increased 102% in over the course of the year. It is more than five times higher than in 2012, when there were 645 such crimes.

The range of offences ranges from less serious sexual crimes up to rape. They account for 9.1% of all sex crimes – out of all proportion to the size of the group compared to the general population.

According to analysis by the Gatestone Institute think tank, the most frequently recorded nationalities were Syrian, Afghan, Iraqi, Pakistani, Iranian, Algerian and Moroccan.

It complained that a “lenient legal system” in Germany has seen offenders repeatedly released, in some cases to commit further crimes.

Critics have accused German police of failing to deal robustly with crime by migrants – and sometimes making efforts to cover it up.

The most salient example – the mass sex attacks in Cologne in the early hours of New Year’s Day 2016 – saw police initially describe the night as “peaceful”.

There was also extreme reluctance to comment on the nationality of attackers – apparently for fear of stirring up tensions around mass migration.

Since then there have been regular reports of sex crimes involving migrant men – many of which were listed by the Gatestone Institute in their post and by Heat Street in other articles.

Shocker, not: London terror attacks see tourist numbers fall

terror alertSince there are an estimated 23,000 “potential jihadis” in the UK and British security services are having trouble keeping track of them, you couldn’t pay me to visit the UK.

From Express UK: MERLIN ENTERTAINMENTS has said recent terror attacks in Britain have resulted in fewer visitor numbers at attractions such as Madame Tussauds and the London Eye.

In a trading update covering the year to date, the firm said incidents in Manchester and London have dented domestic demand, with Merlin “cautious” on the levels of overseas visitors in the coming months.

Merlin said it benefited from the collapse in the Brexit-hit pound as more foreign tourists flocked to London, which continued in the immediate aftermath of the Westminster attack on March 22.

But the group added: “The incident did result in a softer domestic, day-trip market.”

However, the subsequent attacks in Manchester and London over the past month have resulted in a further deterioration in domestic demand and, given the typical lag between holiday bookings and visitation, we are also cautious on trends in foreign visitation over the coming months.”

Merlin’s other attractions in the capital include London Dungeons and Sea Life.

Trading at Merlin’s Legoland Parks and theme parks – such as Alton Towers – has been in line with expectations, but some have been “adversely affected in recent weeks by the terror attacks and subsequent heightened security measures”, the company added.

Boss Nick Varney said the impact of the terror attacks is still “unclear at this stage”, but he backed the city to bounce back. He said: “What is clear, however, is that London has bounced back before, and will do again.

“I have every confidence in the longer-term resilience and growth trajectory of the market. London is very much open for business, welcoming visitors from the UK and from around the world to this exciting and vibrant city.

He added that he remains “confident in the company’s underlying growth prospects”.

Why the Left encourage the cancer of Muslim migrants

Yesterday, the European Union (EU,) in a press release from its executive cabinet, the European Commission, announced that the EU is “launching infringement procedures” against three member states — Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland — for shirking their “obligation” by refusing to take in refugees (“that have not yet relocated a single person, or that are not pledging to relocate”).

At the same time, the European Commission declares the refugee “resettlement” of the past two years to be a success (“relocation works if there is political will”) and that the “relocation” will “accelerate”. In fact, the pace of refugee intake “has significantly increased in 2017 with almost 10,300 persons relocated since January — a fivefold increase compared to the same period in 2016.”

The EU elites won’t tell their peoples the truth, but Professor Abdessamad Belhaja, a highly-regarded scholar of Islam, has.

Abdessamad Belhaja is a research fellow at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the University of Szeged, as well as a visiting lecturer and research fellow at Belgium’s Catholic University of Louvain.

In an interview last year with Hungary’s Migration Research Institute, Dr. Belhaja warned that:

  1. Muslims in Europe view migration as the means to the Islamization of the continent.
  2. Globalists are using Muslim migrants to turn Western countries into socially divided societies of easily-controlled consumers.

(1) Islamic moral economy

Dr. Belhaja explains that although Muslims claim it to be just and virtuous, the “Islamic moral economy is the sanctification by Islam” of a self-serving economic model wherein “every act, violent or moderate, and transaction, legal or illegal, serves as a tool to spread Islam, support and maintain the Muslim community.”

Put simply, the Islamic moral economy is the religious rationalization of a  redistributive, take-from-the-wealthy socialism. Belhaja explains:

“Islamic moral economy believes that if there is money, it is because of Islam, and if there is Islam it will bring money because of the constant redistribution of the goods. In Islam, all property belongs to God [Allah], and when he gives it to people, he expects a deal: that of spending it in ‘the way of Allah’. Islamic law urges to use every property in the service of religion. Property is regulated by sharia, the only valid law from an Islamic point of view. The faithful [Muslims] considers all property as ‘given’ and not ‘acquired’ by work. So, the more property a person has, the more it feels she or he should give it back to God, that is to mosques, call to Islam, pilgrimage, supporting jihad, etc. If a person acquires property and does not redistribute it, religion and society will activate a discourse of guilt . . . [and] threatens anybody who does not contribute to it.”

And that’s exactly what the Arabic countries do with their income from oil trade — they “give it back” to Allah by constructing mosques and spreading Islam:

“oil allowed countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran to re-Islamise migrants in Europe, and Muslim societies from Africa to South East Asia. This income was sold as a divine grace, to disseminate conservative and political Islam, the results of which we see today in the spread of Salafism and political Shiism…. Islamic charities are usually led by Islamists, mainly Muslim Brotherhood affiliates, with international webs from Indonesia to the United States. They practice missionary work, while funding Hamas, and other Islamic projects controlled by Islamists . . . in Europe and elsewhere.”

In the case of Muslim “refugees” and “migrants” in Europe, that means they regard Europeans’ property as Islam’s for Muslims to take. Belhaja warns that the Islamic socialist conception of economy is “disastrous” for the “market economy” of capitalism and will lead to the impoverishment of the West’s middle class:

“This moral economy appears as a blessed subsistence, rizq that you get with no specific reason . . . . This redistributive system allows surviving on the periphery even without having a job for 30 years while having as many kids as possible . . . .

In Islamic discourses, migration is seen as a beginning of the Islamisation of Europe, the rich land that will change the fate of Islam, from a religion of the poor to a religion of the rich. This is of course a paradox since the poor can only make Europe poorer . . . . The reason Islamic moral economy is disastrous is that it . . . increases the number of the community through demography, converting and migration, exhausts resources and moves on . . . . This results in weakening further the state and the middle classes . . . .”

At the same time, Muslims in Europe do not recognize the legitimacy of European states and their laws because for Muslims:

“state law has no weight compared to the law of God [Allah] . . . . Often, Islamists accept state law as a parallel law, to establish a parallel society. Islamists today defend secularism in Europe because in the current form of secularism, parallel economy is possible.”

The question naturally arises: Why, then, do Western governments support and encourage the migration and resettlement of Muslim “refugees” in Europe and North America?

(2) Why Western political elites welcome Muslim migrants

Dr. Belhaja states that the Left and Islam share affinities that are structural, not accidental. For the Muslim migrants, the West is a source of welfare. For Western political elites, the benefits include:

(a) Votes, in exchange for welfare:

“Socialist and social democratic parties also played a major role in this gift economy: they gave Muslim families social assistance, in exchange of votes, and then supported the construction of mosques and the spread of Islamism, etc. It is an alliance that, at the end of the day, discourages Muslims from integration, citizenship and work.”

(b) A minimum-wage immigrant workforce with “an impulse” for consumerism, which is the opiate used by the state to control the masses.

(c) Globalization:

“Migration is useful for the neo-liberal model of the borderless, minimal, global society, but is calamitous for the European citizens as a whole. The millions of migrants neoliberalism welcomes appear as a cheap work force; it believes that the expenses spent on them will pay back by lower salaries, etc.. In the meantime, European citizens get poorer since average wages are decreasing, and unemployment is on the rise. The logic of neoliberalism only looks at the profit it could get from Muslim migration.”

Dr. Belhaja predicts that the inevitable result of Muslim migration to the West is jihadism, when the migrants discover they cannot achieve material prosperity and turn to religious and political radicalism. He explains:

“Islamic movements and the migration waves provide examples of how MacWorld attracts jihad. On the one hand they yearn for the living standards of the West. On the other hand, as shown by the crisis of the second and third generation of immigrants, they cannot obtain what they desire. This failure, ineptness and exclusion generate aggression. Jihadism sustains a religious narrative – an apocalyptic one I would say – stressing the need to demolish the “pagan” West and bring Islam to victory. However, in fact it serves economic interests, usually of international dimension, while it provides false feeling of religious self-realisation. Generating fear strengthens the Islamic moral economy, as it proves to its adherents the moral superiority of Islam, and prepares for its long awaited victory.

The professional posturer: John McCain says US leadership was stronger under Obama

john-mccain-lord-of-the-tarp1

And to think I voted for this RINO.

From Daily Mail: John McCain has said US leadership was stronger under Barack Obama and said Donald Trump‘s criticism of Sadiq Khan suggested American ‘doesn’t want to lead’.

The senator from Arizona had said America’s standing in the world was being damaged by Mr. Trump, who has championed an ‘America First’ approach.

He said the US had been better off under Obama, despite being a fierce critic of the former president and particularly his foreign policy which he awarded an ‘F’ grade.

Mr. McCain, who ran against Obama as the Republican nominee in the 2008 presidential election, said Mr. Trump was in danger of alienating its allies.

It comes after Mr. Trump attacked London Mayor Mr. Khan after the London Bridge terror attack which left eight dead and dozens injured. Mr. Trump criticized the mayor after he told Londoners not to be alarmed about an increased police presence following the atrocity on June 3.

When asked about that, Mr. McCain told the Guardian: ‘What do you think the message is? The message is that America doesn’t want to lead. They [the rest of the world] are not sure of American leadership, whether it be in Siberia or whether it be in Antarctica.’

When asked if America’s standing around the world had been better under Obama, Mr. McCain replied: ‘As far as American leadership is concerned, yes.’

Mr. McCain’s comments are especially relevant as he had been such a fervent critic of the previous administration’s foreign policy. Mr. McCain had previously said there was ‘profound concern across Europe and the world’ that America was ‘laying down the mantle of global leadership’.

And speaking last month in Sydney he said: ‘I know that many of you will have a lot of questions about where America is headed under President Trump. Frankly, so do many Americans.’ 

Discussing Mr. Trump’s alleged links to Russia, he added: ‘I can remember the Watergate scandal and how it brought down a president. I’m not suggesting that’s going to happen to this president, but we are in a scandal and every few days another shoe drops from this centipede, and we’ve got to get through that.’

Mr. Trump’s spat with Mr. Khan was the latest in a series of clashes between the pair. Mr. Khan had previously criticized Mr. Trump’s remarks about Muslims and his attempts to bring in a travel ban against people from six mainly-Muslim countries trying to enter the US, and Mr. Trump labelling him a ‘buffoon’ and challenging him to an IQ test.

Asked about the fallout with Mr. Trump, Mr. Khan told ITV1’s today’s Good Morning Britain: ‘We’re not kids in a playground, he’s the president of the US. I’m too busy to respond to his tweets, isn’t he busy?’

He denied he was stoking up a feud which went back to 2016, when the mayor described the then presidential candidate’s calls for a ban on Muslim entry into the US as ‘ignorant’.

‘It takes two to tango. I’m not tangoing with this guy, I’ve got better things to do,’ said Mr. Khan. ‘From Saturday until now my focus has been dealing with the aftermath of the horrific attack. Working with the police, security services, the Government; that’s why I’ve not responded to the tweets from Donald Trump.’

Prime Minister Theresa May waded into the row with clear criticism of Mr. Trump, insisting he was ‘wrong’ to be criticizing Mr. Khan’s response.

What the lying, globalist media rats won’t show you: France is a war zone

CNN’s Becky Anderson would like for you to believe that peaceful Muslims honored the dead London terrorist victims. She is lying to promote a globalist agenda.

The amount of terror and carnage that terrorist Muslims and refugees are causing throughout Europe is devastating. 

The media will not report the truth of what is happening. Just watch the above video from France to witness what is really occurring.

May I suggest that if you have plans to visit France this summer that you cancel them NOW.

Muslim Sympathizer Angela Merkel Says Border Walls Won’t Solve Immigration Issues

merkel muslim

What would you expect from a womyn who claims that Islam isn’t the cause of terrorism? Perhaps Merkel should take a look at the Ramadan Bombathon numbers.

From Yahoo: In a jab at U.S. President Donald Trump, German Chancellor Angela Merkel denounced the use of border walls during her visit to Mexico City on Saturday.

Speaking on a panel discussion with Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto, Merkel argued that building border walls disregards the root of immigration issues.

“Obviously the main reason for people leaving must be addressed on site first, which means putting up walls and cutting oneself off will not solve the problem,” Merkel said, as translated by Reuters. Improving standards of living and employment opportunities everywhere should be prioritized, she said.

Her comments take aim at Trump’s election pledge to make Mexico pay for a “big, fat, beautiful wall” along the U.S.-Mexico border to keep immigrants from crossing into the U.S.

A long record exists of such walls failing and friendly diplomacy succeeding, said Merkel, whose government has welcomed more than a million refugees into Germany since 2015.

“It’s an issue you can study well in the history of China with the (Great) Wall of China, you can study it in the history of the Roman Empire,” she said during the panel. “Essentially, only when great empires have managed to forge sensible relationships with their neighbors and to manage migration has it been a success.”
