Genuine Refugees Will Be Helped but It’s Dangerous Not to Keep Out Bogus Ones




We keep hearing about tragedies involving immigrants, often hundreds of them, dying in the attempt to reach Europe and the UK.

Only a few hours ago came the news that the Italian Coast Guard has just rescued from the Mediterranean in only 24 hours nearly 1,000 Libyan migrants heading for Europe. At least 10 people died when their vessel capsized in freezing waters.

The rescue occurred off Porto Empedocle, in the Sicilian Channel, the stretch of water between Sicily and the North coast of Africa. You can see the video of the rescue operation above.

Less than a month ago, we heard about the 300 migrants who presumably “drowned in the Mediterranean Sea after three rubber boats carrying refugees from North Africa to the Italian island of Lampedusa were reported missing, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.”

In reporting that news, the Leftist newspaper The Independent implies that not enough is being done to save lives, and some people, shocked by such headlines, may also think that more efforts should be made to help these immigrants.

Many of these criticisms come from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), as can be seen in this video:




But the UN is not always right in its approach to European and UK’s immigration policies. For example, Francois Crépeau, the Canadian who is the UN’s special rapporteur on migrants’ rights, claims that Britain and other EU countries should provide free access to health care, education and housing to not just legal but also illegal immigrants and find homes for a million asylum seekers.

Add to this that the UN has a former Marxist as a special rapporteur on housing, the Brazilian Raquel Rolnik, and a radical feminist as special rapporteur on violence against women, South African Rashida Manjoo - who claimed that “sexism in Britain was the worst she had seen in the world despite her visits to dangerously repressive countries such as Bangladesh, Somalia and Algeria” -, and you get the impression that the UN is not always to be trusted and that many UN tsars “are promoting their own bizarre Leftist agendas”, as The Express put it.

Crépeau (mind you, not “Crapeau”) told The Independent: “The fantasy is that there is a core British culture that was created probably 2,000 years ago and carried on, and now it’s being threatened by all those barbarians that are coming to our gate.”

UKIP’s leader Nigel Farage was quick to respond: "More people came to Britain in 2013 than came between 1066 and 1950. That gives you a sense of perspective of where we are with this, so he is talking utter baloney.”

UKIP MEP David Coburn added: "It is the usual tosh. He has no understanding of the economic problems that this is causing the United Kingdom. And as for the cultural aspect, quite frankly he knows nothing of our country and it's not for him to decide what we feel."

And UKIP’s migration spokesman Steven Woolfe reiterated: “Mr Crepeau epitomises why so many people in Britain dislike interfering international bureaucrats. He is an unknown and unrecognisable bureaucrat.”

The UK, as revealed by the latest official figures earlier this month, remains Europe’s biggest ”magnet for migrants”.

Just to get an idea of the astonishing demands placed on Britain by its massive immigration, consider that at the UK's biggest primary school, Gascoigne Primary School in Barking, East London, only one in 10 pupils speaks English as first language - down from nine out of 10 in 1999. Now they speak no fewer than – wait for it - 60 different languages.

The UN’s various commissars obviously don’t care if British culture is going to be totally buried under this avalanche of foreign influx. But we do.

The genuine asylum claimants among the immigrants are only a minority and there is already a legal procedure for refugees and asylum-seekers to apply for entry to the UK:
Asylum applicants or 'asylum seekers' are individuals who come to the UK and apply for protection as refugees. A refugee is someone who has fled his or her own country, and cannot return for well-founded fear of persecution there. The UK adheres to UN and European agreements on refugees and human rights and therefore must not return asylum applicants to a place where they are likely to face torture or persecution.

Asylum adds to the UK resident population in several ways. First, it adds to the legal, permanent ('settled'), population. A minority of applicants gain permission to stay in the UK ('leave to remain'), and may remain long enough to settle in the UK. Leave to remain might mean official recognition as a refugee or permission to stay for 'humanitarian protection' (HP) or through 'discretionary leave to remain' (DL). In each case, the protected individual can stay in the UK for five years and then has the opportunity to apply for indefinite leave to remain.

Second, asylum adds to the temporary population. Applicants who are unsuccessful and eventually leave the UK nonetheless will live in the UK for some time as they await a decision. Any such applicant who lives in the UK for at least 12 months is classified as a 'long-term international migrant'.

A third group is more difficult to count – individuals whose applications for asylum have been rejected, but who have not departed the country. Some of this group applies for 'hard case support' (aka Section 4) while awaiting departure, and are tracked in Home Office data. Others may have departed outside of official removal or voluntary departure schemes; still others may remain illegally in the UK out of contact with immigration control, and thus uncounted.

The Home Office counts applications, decisions (initially and on appeal), and grants of leave to remain for asylum applicants. This includes dependents that arrived with the main applicant as part of the initial application. These data provide good estimates of the first two routes into the population for asylum seekers: 1) those who gain leave to remain in the UK, and 2) those that live in the UK temporarily while their cases are in process. The challenges in understanding the make-up of the third group, those whose application have been rejected but still remain here without legal permission, are discussed in the Evidence gaps and limitations section.
So the UK is not barring asylum seekers, but needs to deal firmly with those queue jumpers who prefer to use "refugee" status to justify their illegal immigration into their destinations of choice.

We are not selfish and inhumane in our treatment of refugees and asylum seekers, but at the same time we must protect our borders and our culture if we want to survive as a race and a civilisation from these invasions.

Recent news shows that now more than ever Britain needs to be careful about whom it lets in.

ISIS is now controlling Libya's coasts and decides who is going to Italy by the immigrant boats. ISIS wants to send its own operative cells and jihadists to the island of Lampedusa, off Sicily - and then on to the rest of Europe, including the UK.

    Wow this is Orwellian. This person considers the truth to be a fantasy. I imagine he thinks the fact that 2+2=4 is a fantasy too. Cultural Marxists are EVIL. The first world is the levy that prevents the Law of the Jungle from becoming the prevailing law once again. If our countries are destroyed by Utopian idiots billions of people will die. They are truly evil.

    "A refugee is someone who has fled his or her own country, and cannot return for well-founded fear of persecution there."

    Refugees flee their countries because they fear for their lives and then their welfare neighborhoods in their new country end up being violent and crime ridden just like their home country.

    Europeans fought and died to make their democratic countries free from tyranny. They rose up and threw out the tyrants. How about these refugees fight and die to bring freedom to their own countries? I'm not responsible for the fact that their people refuse to take responsibility for the own governments.

    America is on the cusp of another revolution and the patriots need to throw out the so called Conservative party, "the Republicans." Whites are in fact waking up however they have been betrayed. The republicans were elected in majority to turn back Negro Bama's executive amnesty and they did nothing. There is going to be a Conservative revolution and the Republicans will be thrown out. We will elect a true Conservative party.

  2. Whites feel guilty about their race's history of conquering and colonization. This accounts for 99% of their White guilt that they then attempt to repent for by allowing hordes of non-whites into their countries.

    I feel 0% guilt and have 100% HUBRIS, not just pride, for my peoples past. This is because I understand history and reality.

    The European empires, Greece, Rome, England, and America have fought off attacks from non-whites since the beginning of history. Europeans have ALWAYS been victims, and yes American colonists were the VICTIMS of savage native attacks even when the Americans were the aggressors and commandeered native land. Here's an analogy:

    Europeans are a gladiator who's been thrown into the arena against his will. The seven foot brute opponent that is about to kill us is the personification of the 3rd world. We were given a sword and then told, "if you don't defend yourself you WILL die." We have had NO CHOICE. We HAD to kill.

    If we would have never expanded our empires and conquered non-Europeans, the prevailing law of the world would still be THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE. This unrelenting jungle force NEVER STOPS attempting to destroy the only civilization that is governed by TRUE law and not the LAW OF THE JUNGLE; European civilization. If we didn't conquer it meant there would be an eternity of death, disease, and destruction for the ENTIRE WORLD.

    Yes, Europeans were the aggressors against the native Americans. However it was entirely a DEFENSIVE act; we either conquer the savage natives and invent America or we allow the LAW OF THE JUNGLE to kill us with its unrelenting growth. It is the battle to establish TRUE LAW in the presence of the relentless, destructive force of the LAW OF THE JUNGLE.

    I have HUBRIS. I am PROUD of my ancestors and would have done the EXACT same thing they did if I were in their shoes.

  3. I am just curious (as an American who has never traveled to Europe) about how the average person on the Continent really feels about immigration. On one hand, many articles state Europeans are becoming more tolerant. The site the fact that the majority of young Spaniards under 30 have a favorable opinion of Muslims and the fact that in Britain and France more white women marry blacks. However, when articles are written on immigration, the overwhelming majority of comments by Europeans are negative. Few if any say anything about wanting to become a multi-cultural society. Today there have been three articles on this subject on Yahoo. One of the articles was from Al Jazeera. Almost 100% of the comments from Europeans stated Europe should close its borders, start turning back the boats in the med, and returning those coming from Turkey to that country. I guess they are supposed to claim refugee status in the first stable country. Turkey is supposed to be a modern democratic society and it is a brother muslim country. Why go to Europe and live under a system that is not a Sharia paradise? By the way, I have always wanted to travel to Europe, but I could never come up with the $5000 plus dollars for such a trip. Often I have worked two jobs.

  4. Why these people think they have to come to Europe is beyond me. They should go somewhere else in Africa - it's big enough and there's an economic miracle happening(so we're being told)

    I most certainly don't want them coming here(England) genuine or not.
