It appears that Nepalese expelled from Bhutan and living in Nepal now qualify for refugee status, and all the welfare that entails. http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/new.php?n=16581 (h/t Refugee Resettlement Watch http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2009/07/20/alaska-gets-refugees-too/)
Our asylum laws say that only those who cannot go elsewhere can qualify for refugee status in the United States. It appears now that the Obama Regime, like Clintong and Jorge Bush Administrations before it. How is it that a Nepalese flees Bhutan back to Nepal, then qualifies for refugee status in the U.S.? The refugee and asylum programs are a complete fraud. Whether it is Somali families where no one is related, Mexican homosexuals, Salvadoran gangbangers, our refugee and asylum laws are being abused by lying liberals and dangerous and welfare dependant aliens. http://www.t-g.com/story/1478471.html http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/Anti-Gang-Leader-Arrested-In-MS-13-Sweep.html http://www.visalaw.com/99mar/42mar99.html
The Refugee Act of 1980 was written because Jimmy Carter ordered two Russian sailors who fled their ship docked in the U.S. to be placed back on their ship. They were eventually executed back in Russia by Carter's communist friends. The Act was not designed to protect homosexuals, criminals or fraudsters. It was basically designed to protect those fleeing communism. However it is being abused even by Mexicans fleeing crime. At least some of those are being denied. But I still don't understand how 60 Mexicans a year qualify for asylum. http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/mexico/50552192.html Lets see how long this lasts.
