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.

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. …

So what has the UN been doing to halt that armed conflict? It only gets agitated when Israel defends itself. A useless bunch there!

Eff the UN.

Let them be the refugees, and kick the whole bloody wad out of the US...

and the pawns of their orchestrated invasion, too.

I’ll still bet that 95% of them are Mexicans.

No, UN, they aren’t refugees. They’re illegal aliens invading our country. Stop them at the border, before they get into our country.

Oh we can and go on and start the countdown to the next anti-Israel ruling by the UN. They are probably working on it now anyway. One good crisis deserves an anti-Israel statement, no matter where it occurs.

Refugee status gets them a whole boatload of welfare stuff. Why isn’t Canada being forced to take in these refugees? They’re North America too.

I predict the UN will soon set up refugee centers in our southwestern states.

The reason given will be the ICE/BP people are overwelmed.

This will be done by executive order.

They are not even migrants

Migrant is defined as moving from one region to another within the same entity (country) in order to work

Wrong on both

They’re are not immigrants of any sort as they are not here to work nor to respect our laws and culture

They are none of these in fact

And they are not refugees

Us veterans have more of a refugee status than they do

With a chill up my spine, I must concede that your prediction seems spot on.

Amen!

Look at post #14, BTW, to see what is really going on.

US Veterans, that is

A back seat to the invaders. As usual. Just like on the checkout line at Costco and HEB

I'd rather push for those United Nations officials to be treated as enemy combatants.

I’m with you.

America is the world’s single most liberal state on not enforcing our own laws on immigration.

Yet the left (and the right) both continue to push.

BUILD A FENCE.

It is not complicated. Build a darn fence, from Texas to California.

Build a darn fence.

The whole way.

Stated before: In Israel, the "Palestinians" were known as "refugees" for the longest time.
