    The United Nations ruled that “climate refugees” cannot be returned back to their home countries. This ruling forces the United States to allow all Central Americans into our country. Literally, anyone can claim the new refugee status. This will essentially open US borders for good. Now the left has combined open borders with junk science to create climate refugees. Via The Central Tibetan Administration: It is unlawful for governments to return people to countries where their lives might be threatened by the climate crisis, a landmark ruling by the United Nations human rights committee has found. The judgment – which...

    If you’re a resident of Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, or West Virginia who voted Republican in your state’s most recent gubernatorial race, did you also hope your vote would help facilitate the voluntary admission of more refugees from the third world? If not, too bad, because that’s exactly what it did, thanks to an astonishing level of guilt-induced moral preening from eighteen (and counting) RINO squishes all too happy to put foreigners over the citizens who elected them to office. “But, but, but,” you...

    The Federalist ^ | December 30, 2019 | Lew Jan Olowski
    The 'Jesus was a refugee' trope is tired and inaccurate. It's time for leftist politicians to stop exploiting Christmas by making false arguments about history.To profane a holy day, politicize it. Politicians’ profanity du jour is to exploit Christmas by making false arguments about immigration policy. Yet their rhetoric unintentionally supports the opposite points from what these politicians intend. Consider Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana. On Christmas day, he said, “[D]ivinity on earth … came into this world not in riches but in poverty, not as a citizen but as a refugee.” Today I join millions around the...

    George Soros has bought and paid for the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), which asked state governors across the nation to settle “refugees” despite President Trump’s executive order that allows states and municipalities the right to approve or deny federal requests to resettle foreign populations in their legal jurisdictions. The ERLC is partnering with an anti-Israel organization in the lobbying operation. The ERLC is a head of the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), which is owned by the National Immigration Forum, a shell-entity of Soros’ Open Societies Foundation. Although the EIT has demonstrably lied about receiving Soros funds and why,...

    This Christmas, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg sought to draw his followers to a sacred story that helps shape the presidential candidate’s worldview and politics. But the pushback he received — mostly from conservative Christians — illuminates how one of the burgeoning culture wars during the 2020 election is the meaning of Christianity. Buttigieg, an Episcopalian who often discusses his faith on the campaign trail, sought to tie the Nativity story to some of the issues dominating political discourse. He tweeted: “Today I join millions around the world in celebrating the arrival of divinity on earth, who came into...

    A 60-year-old man stabbed to death in south London last night has become the capital’s 145th murder victim this year. A 50-year-old was arrested at the scene following the stabbing but was taken ill in custody and transferred to hospital where he is stable. The attack happened at 9:30 pm on Monday night in Thornton Heath, south London; and the victim, whose relatives have been informed, was found in the street. Officers are appealing for any witnesses to come forward to help the investigation. […] Youth workers, police and prosecutors say that witnesses are unwilling to give evidence because they...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday said his country could not handle a new wave of refugees as tens of thousands flee a fresh Russian offensive in the Syrian province of Idlib. “If the violence towards the people of Idlib does not stop, this number will increase even more,” Erdogan said during an award ceremony late Sunday. “In that case, Turkey will not carry such a migrant burden on its own.” Turkey currently hosts nearly 3.7 million registered Syrian refugees and has previously warned Europe that it could no longer bear the brunt of the conflict.

  • Governor on refugees: "The inn is not full in Minnesota"

    Minnesota state government will continue to consent to refugee resettlement, Gov. Tim Walz said Friday, in response to a recent presidential executive order that requires consent from states and counties. “The inn is not full in Minnesota,” the Democratic governor said in a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just ahead of the Christmas holiday. Walz also said he rejects the intent of the executive order and reserves the state’s right to challenge its requirements. “Minnesota has a strong moral tradition of welcoming those who seek refuge,” he wrote. “Our state has always stepped forward to help those who...

    Minnesota Governor Tim Walz and Minneapolis both reaffirmed their support for refugee resettlement. On Friday, the Minneapolis City Council voted in favor of a resolution to reaffirm the city's pledge to support refugee resettlement in the city. The vote comes after President Donald Trump issued an executive order instructing federal officials to receive written consent from local governments before they can accept refugees. "The Mayor and City Council do hereby affirm the City's status as a Welcoming City, and a city that strongly supports resettling refugees without regard to race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, or country of origin,"...

    Nearly 100 mayors across the United States are begging President Trump to import as many refugees to the country as possible in order to “bring cultural vibrancy and diversity” to American communities.In a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last month, about 88 mayors — from Denver, Colorado to Columbia, South Carolina — urged Trump to end his latest executive order that gives American communities more veto power over whether they want refugees resettled in their communities.The mayors said that more refugees are needed to bring about “cultural vibrancy and diversity” to their often small towns, though they admit refugees are an initial...

    Should U.S. citizens have input into whether their neighborhoods are fundamentally and permanently transformed into United Nations refugee camps full of welfare dependents and tax burdens? Government-funded charities that profit mightily from the federal refugee resettlement program say: "Hell, no!" But President Donald Trump and growing numbers of informed Americans across the heartland are raising their voices to say: "Heavens, yes!" This week, an extraordinary revolt took place in Bismarck, North Dakota, where an overflow crowd of residents braved subzero temperatures to register their opposition to allowing the Lutheran Social Services to dump any new refugees in their backyard.
