U.S. Considering Refugee Status For Hondurans
The New York Times ^ | 24 Jul 2014 | FRANCES ROBLES and MICHAEL D. SHEAR

Posted on 07/24/2014 6:02:40 PM PDT by mandaladon

Hoping to stem the recent surge of migrants at the Southwest border, the Obama administration is considering whether to allow hundreds of minors and young adults from Honduras into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico, according to a draft of the proposal.

If approved, the plan would direct the government to screen thousands of children and youths in Honduras to see if they can enter the United States as refugees or on emergency humanitarian grounds. It would be the first American refugee effort in a nation reachable by land to the United States, the White House said, putting the violence in Honduras on the level of humanitarian emergencies in Haiti and Vietnam, where such programs have been conducted in the past amid war and major crises.

Critics of the plan were quick to pounce, saying it appeared to redefine the legal definition of a refugee and would only increase the flow of migration to the United States. Administration officials said they believed the plan could be enacted through executive action, without congressional approval, as long as it did not increase the total number of refugees coming into the country.

By moving decisions on refugee claims to Honduras, the plan aims to slow the rush of minors crossing into the United States illegally from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, which has overwhelmed the border this year. More than 45,000 unaccompanied minors from those three nations have arrived since Oct. 1, straining federal resources to the point that some agencies will exhaust their budgets by next month, the secretary of Homeland Security has said.

Great way to encourage countries to fix themselves. We can’t continue this way...just can’t.

Face it, until the US is struck again by Al Quaida spin offs, ISIS, coming through the border, 43% of Americans apparently think Barrack is pretty wonderful. Heck, maybe even after a strike!

Since we’re going to need a place for all the Hondurans, why not just annex Honduras?

Just can’t, so true.

We will not make two more years of this, of Obama doing his thing, of Congress doing nothing, of 49 Governors standing silently by, just can’t go on like this, really?

This administration has been quietly purging patriots from our military leadership for years. I pray that there are a few they missed.

I think the only thing that would wake up the sleeping idiots is an EMP strike. No more TV, no more texting, facebook, twitter, skype, nothing. They would never survive w/o all their gadgets, reality TV and fast-food. Hell, they don’t even SPEAK to anyone - they text each other from opposite sides of a room.

Isn’t that the truth! Something like that might be costly to the Marxist, or at minimum mess with his pathetic legacy.

WOULD BE. No if's, ands or butts about it. And what the hell do they expect? OF COURSE IT WILL INCREASE THE NUMBER OF REFUGEES COMING IN. The number seems to go up every day, every hour. But who's counting?

Hey, look at the bright side. With the new Obama definition of refugee, we can start giving refugee status to highly skilled, highly educated Brits and Europeans trying to escape the violent gang activity of Muslim Islamic radicals in their own countries.

Great Britain and Europe are seeing more serious gang problems and ethnic strife due to their Muslim problems and they know enough to not make the mistake if letting their government swamp citizens with demographic flood of lawless third world immigrants

Refugee status????

What about the rest of Central and South America???

What about Africa???

What about Asia???

Hey, here’s an idea - why don’t we fly in everyone on Planet Earth who’d like to live here, then give them taxpayer funded housing, clothing, food, and medical care.

Provided they promise to vote Democrat, naturally.

Obama is no more than a hair’s breadth away from declaring himself President for Life and tossing out the constitution in favor of an Obama dictatorship.

How the heck are they refugees?

This is Obama getting back at Honduras for having opposed him when he tried to impose a crazy Marxist usurper on them. They fought back and the result was that they were excluded from international trade treaties, the OAS, and a host of other forms of aid. That’s why Honduras is so poor, and now Obama is rubbing it in by calling these people “refugees.”

That said, how can he simply declare this?

This is actually an excellent point - the skinny pice of $hit isn't above trashing the USA to get his petty revenge. We've seen that over and over again.
