    The Trump administration plans to admit a maximum of only 30,000 refugees in 2019. Although this would be the lowest refugee cap in U.S. history, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, when making the announcement at the State Department Monday afternoon, called the new figures "expansive." He added that they should "not be viewed in isolation" because the U.S. is the world's most generous nation when it comes to humanitarian assistance. Pompeo suggested that maintaining that high level of U.S. humanitarian assistance was related to the new cap, which he also said "serves the national security interests" of the US. The...

  • A Left-Wing Regime, But a Tough Immigration Policy in South Korea

    Weekly Standard ^ | Aug 2018 | Ethan Epstein
    South Korean president Moon Jae In has raised government spending...and implemented a traditional left wing economic program. Yet Moon marries left-wing economics with the social conservatism that is still de rigueur in South Korea. During the country’s presidential campaign last year, he came out against gay soldiers and even went to so far as to state that he “ opposes” homosexuality in general. And unlike other left-wing leaders across the globe, Moon evinces hostility to immigration. For the past two months, the picturesque, subtropical South Korean island of Jeju has been home to a bizarre migration crisis. Jeju is a...

    The refugee agency said it had received “reliable reports” that “criminals” were impersonating UN staff at several disembarkation platforms and smuggling hubs across the country. The impersonators have been sporting vests and other items with similar logos to that of UNHCR. This information comes from “refugees who claim to have been sold to traffickers in Libya and subjected to abuse and torture, including after having been intercepted at sea,” the UNHCR said, adding that investigations into the allegations were ongoing. The Agency stressed “genuine” UNHCR staff are present at official disembarkation points in Libya, where they are providing medical and...

    The Russian Federation is welcoming up to 15,000 South African Boers to resettle in the south of Russia and farm the land. They will need to invest up to 100,000 of their own money to make the transition into the Russian economy. The community is experiencing escalating violence against the white population and the communist African National Congress has declared they will forcefully take white land without compensation. The Schlebusch family from South Africa’s Bloemfontein is going to be among first 50 Boer families to settle in Russia’s southwest. Like many other Boers, they are seeking political asylum in Russia....

    When delusions and fantasies are substitutes for reporting. How did the Washington Post cover the end of America's UNRWA Funding?Here’s how: The United States will no longer contribute to the United Nations relief agency for Palestinian refugees, the State Department announced Friday [August 31], amid widespread Palestinian outrage charging that the decision violates international law and will aggravate an already dire humanitarian situation, particularly in Gaza. The Washington Post should explain to readers, if it can, what “international law” the “Palestinians” claim has been violated. I do not think there is any. Contributions to UNRWA are voluntary. In any case,...

    Of course, both Russia and South Africa share a lot in common: they both have European roots, they are both Christian, agrarian and agricultural, and so, even though certainly the language difference can be a significant hurdle for the settlers, Russia does offer nevertheless a very accommodating cultureEditor's note:As we have written extensively, Russia is swiftly becoming a political and spiritual refuge for conservative, Christian communities. As the liberal West becomes increasingly aggressive against conservatives, Russia, with its wide expanses of land and reinvigorated religiousity becomes more attractive those who want to live traditional lifestyles.Russia is considering taking in up...

    A few weeks ago we discussed the ongoing refugee crisis involving Venezuelans fleeing starvation, disease and violence in their home country. The majority of them have been attempting to travel through Colombia to Ecuador because there are more roads and civilization in general along that route. Some, however, have chosen to take the more dangerous route to the southeast through Brazil, likely heading for Peru and Chile. Unfortunately, while the government of Brazil is officially calling for peace, many Brazilian citizens are angry about the influx of Venezuelan travelers and have taken to attacking them. One group of Brazilian...

    "They" are preciously called "immigrants," "refugees," "migrants," "undocumented Americans," and other pathetic-sounding names tailored to wrench our hearts – we purportedly cruel, unsympathetic, inhuman Americans.  Luxuriating here, behind our walls of wealth, abundance, and security, we deny them our (stolen) largesse and close up our fat-wracked arms to these noble, sacred, starving, uneducated, illiterate, diseased, violent, and socialist masses from "third-world," countries. Who are these Mexicans, Africans, South Americans, Asians, and others whose feet Nancy Pelosi has washed and the pope kissed?  What is it these luminaries see that we do not?  We – reputedly the most selfish, detestable creatures on...

They took thousands of women as sex slaves, including Ashwaq - sold for $100 to a man named Abu Humam.

A few months ago, on the street outside a supermarket, she heard someone call out her name. She says it was Abu Humam - and he said he knew where she lived.

    Monday evening coordinated attacks small groups of young men dressed in black torched between 80 and 100 cars. The fact that the attacks took place in several cities at roughly the same time led police to believe the arsonists had organized themselves on the internet. So far authorities aren’t saying who is responsible but Sweden’s Prime Minister is promising to “go in hard” against whoever it is. From the Guardian: “I am really furious, what the hell are they up to?” Stefan Löfven on Tuesday morning. “Society will always act hard against this and we must continue to do...

    The British government has admitted that no Christians were taken among the Syrian refugees flown into Britain recently, with the Home Office rejected the handful of non-Muslims selected for resettlement by the United Nations. Despite the persecution of Christians at the hands of Islamic extremists in Syria having been declared genocide by the U.S., the European Union (EU) and even British MPs themselves in a 2016 parliamentary vote, the 1,112 Syrians that Britain resettled in the first three months of 2018 consisted only of Muslims. The Barnabas Fund, an aid agency which supports Christians persecuted for their faith, obtained the...
