    A Bangladeshi refugee, who raped a 16-year-old high-school girl in France, has been acquitted by the court due to “different cultural norms,” according to reports. The refugee, who attended the same school as his victim in the French city of Saint-Lô, was also charged with sexually assaulting another young girl in 2015. The attorney contended that the defendant possessed “different cultural norms,” which led to a "misunderstanding" of how the girl dressed, her behavior and looks.

    Introduction: International Standards The concept of first country of asylum is defined in Article 26 of the APD: A country can be considered to be a first country of asylum for a particular applicant for asylum if: (a) s/he has been recognised in that country as a refugee and s/he can still avail him/herself of that protection; or (b) s/he otherwise enjoys sufficient protection in that country, including benefiting from the principle of non-refoulement; provided that s/he will be re-admitted to that country. In applying the concept of first country of asylum to the particular circumstances of an applicant for...

    A refugee living in the United States from Iraq has been arrested and charged with making two bombs in Las Vegas, Nevada and allegedly teaching undercover FBI investigators how to make and detonate the explosive devices. Ahmad Suhad Ahmad, a 30-year-old Iraqi refugee living in Tuscon, Arizona was busted by the FBI after the agency spent nearly two years operating an undercover sting where they say Ahmad built bombs and taught undercover agents how to do the same. According to the FBI, the Iraqi refugee built two bombs in a Las Vegas condo. Both of those bombs, investigators say, were...

    Lena Dunham will write the harrowing survival tale of a Syrian refugee stranded at sea for the big screen. Dunham has been tapped by co-producers Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams to adapt “A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea: One Refugee’s Incredible Story of Love, Loss, and Survival.” The nonfiction release comes from author Melissa Fleming, the chief spokeswoman for the United Nations High Commissioner and Flatiron Books. It documents the true story of Doaa Al Zamel, a mother of two fleeing Egypt for Sweden by boat. Shipwrecked along the way, Al Zamel survived for days in open water holding...

    Angela Merkel, Germany’s Chancellor and dubbed “mutti Merkel”, mother of refugees, just committed what can be described as political seppuku. Again. This time, she threatened Italy with a new migrant-flood via German flights transferring so-called refugees. No, this is not a joke, but the sad political state of affairs in the European Union. Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who just became my personal hero, had a very short and concise answer to Merkel’s “proposal”: we will close airports to German flights bringing refugees to Italy. In other words, read my lips Angela: Italy will accept no more refugees. It’s your...

    I only met him in person once, many years ago. We met for beers in downtown Oslo. We didn't agree on everything: among other things, he had an irrational hostility toward the United States, which I put down, in part at least, to the fact that he had never set foot in the U.S. and that his English was surprisingly poor (we spoke in Norwegian), so that his image of my country was shaped largely by the mainstream Scandinavian media and by various sources in his native tongue, Arabic. But never mind. What mattered was that he loved freedom, hated...

    Greece is a country in the European Union which serves as a point of entry for thousands and thousands of so-called refugees arriving on the Old Continent from Africa via boat. Today’ news is about a bleeding heart refugee loving NGO, called Emergency Response Centre International (ERCI), which has made over half a billion Euros yearly since 2015 by helping smuggling over 70,000 so-called refugees (actually illegal aliens) into Greece. The NGO made $2325 (2000 euros) from each illegal alien that was smuggled into the country. On top of that, ERCI got $5815 per immigrant, courtesy of various governmental programs,...

    28-year-old Syrian national Ibrahim Ali, who came to Canada as a refugee, has been accused of murdering a 13-year-old girl in Burnaby, British Colombia, whose body was found last year. The Syrian refugee, who came to Canada through a private sponsorship programme, was arrested last week by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) after a large-scale investigation into the death of the 13-year-old, who was found in Burnaby’s Central Park in July 2017. In court, the 28-year-old was charged with first-degree murder. He required an Arabic interpreter, with proceedings delayed as the court waited for the interpreter to arrive.

    The federal government, coordinating with the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department, is to be commended for nabbing Omar Ameen a couple of days ago. He was wanted in Iraq for participating in ISIS attacks and murdering an Iraqi police officer, so we can chalk one up for the good guys. But ever since the details were made public, people have been increasingly fixated on one question. How did this guy manage to make it to California and be granted refugee status in the first place? (CBS Sacramento) As federal authorities in Sacramento prepare to extradite Omar Ameen to his home country...

    One of the interesting side effects of the reflexive opposition to Trump that has flooded many parts of the political spectrum is that even when he’s right, it becomes a badge of honor to oppose him. Case in point: the revocation of John Brennan’s security clearance. “National defense conservatives” are literally squirting their drawers in defense of Brennan’s First Amendment right to be able to discuss classified information for profit. Perhaps the most odious example of this was opposition to his executive order restricting travel from a small number of failed states and from one state sponsor of terrorism (Iran)....

    HPSurf sent this clip of Polish MP Dominik Tarczynski schooling a BBC bimbo on Muslim immigration in Poland. He also mentioned he was thinking of moving there. All I can say is dlaczego nie? First Poland saved Europe from the Ottomans (single-handedly), then from the Kaiser (an assist) followed by the Commies (a major assist) and now again from the modern-incarnation of the Ottomans - which aren’t much different from the ones some 400 years ago. Just how many times does Poland have to save Western Civilization anyway? I think we should help them this time by adopting Dominik Tarczynski’s platform...

    You really cannot make up a story like this, because it sounds just so unbelievable. I am in Germany on business and did not see the place overrun with refugees as on my last trip. So I made some inquiries. To my complete astonishment, the German government is actually giving refugees three weeks paid vacations INCLUDING airfare BACK to the very countries that claim they are fleeing because it is unsafe.So in other words, despite claiming their lives would be at risk if they were forced to return home, the government is paying them for a vacation to the very...

    If you're a fan of comic books then you likely know Superman's story. Sent to Earth as a baby by his parents just before his home planet Krypton was destroyed, he was raised by a kind couple on a farm in Kansas and grew up to be the world's greatest hero. It's a classic tale. It also means that Superman, one of our most iconic heroes, is a refugee. That's why, for World Refugee Day, DC Comics is reminding fans of Superman's origin and urging people to "be like Superman and stand up for what's right" in a post to...

    Today is World Refugee Day In marking World Refugee Day, which is observed on June 20th, the United Nations notes that on any given day thousands of families are fleeing from their homes to escape violence. The map we’re showing represents the movements of these refugees around the globe from 2000 to 2016. Each orange or red dot represents 17 refugees. The UN established World Refugee Day to increase awareness among all people that those fleeing war and oppression are not a burden, but a responsibility for all of us. It’s an occasion to demonstrate support for the millions forced...

    Where did the current policy of separating children from the parents during Illegal border crossings originate? All I find when I search are it's all the Trump Administrations fault. Every search engine seems to come up nothing but the Left's viewpoint here. Yet I have read someplace that these policies predate Trump. So any help appreciated on information on this.

    Locals in northwest Syria say empty Kurdish homes are being seized by Turkish-backed fighters and given to displaced Arab families. ‘By what law?’ More than 137,000 Afrin residents remain displaced outside their cities and villages as a result of the Turkish military campaign, leaving entire neighbourhoods vacant and thousands of houses unprotected from looting and illegal seizures, according to Sara Kiyyali, Syrian researcher at Human Rights Watch.“A lot of those houses are empty right now,” she told Syria Direct this month. “They were primarily Kurdish residents... [and many] are uncomfortable returning to live under Turkish control.”Muhammad Balou, a PYD supporter...

    A young man who came to Minnesota as a "refugee" from Somalia has been linked to Syed Farook, the shooter who, along with his jihadist wife, killed 14 Americans in San Bernardino less than a week ago. Fox News contributor Rod Wheeler provided a key piece of information about the case, linking the San Bernardino shooters to Mohamed Hassan, a known terrorist recruiter who has been on the FBI radar screen for at least seven years. As WND reported in May, Hassan also helped radicalize Elton Simpson, one of the two jihadists who tried to storm into a Prophet Muhammad...

    [Transcript] When it comes to the ongoing wave of migrant rape and sexual assault in Europe the people I feel most sorry for are the refugee-friendly Progressive feminists because, when they get raped, they won't even know who to blame without being a racist. What am I saying... of course they will. They'll blame all men as usual while telling everybody else not to generalize. I hadn't intended to talk about this subject again for a while but it’s International Women’s Day so, how can I resist? You may know that a couple of recent videos of mine have been...
