Report: None Admitted from Central America or Mexico as Refugees in FY 13

CNSNews reports that the U.S. government did not grant refugee status to any people from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador or Mexico in fiscal year 2013. Democrats in Congress have tried to portray the surge aliens as refugees escaping violence in these countries as opposed to people who were encouraged to enter by recent Obama Administration policies.

CNSNews analyzed data from the U.S. State Department that shows only five Guatemalans and 25 Hondurans were granted refugee status from fiscal years 2007 through 2013, and no individuals from El Salvador or Mexico obtained that status.

Under U.S. law, the term refugee refers to a person who is located outside of the United States, is of “special humanitarian concern to the United States” and has demonstrated that they were persecuted or have a well-founded fear of persecution because of race, religion, nationality, social group or political opinion in their country of origin.

The article examines murder rates in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and quotes Senate testimony from Econometrica economist Bryan Roberts, who said crime rates alone could not explain the surge. “When one considers the evidence across the three countries, changes in crime rates and other underlying conditions are not compelling as an explanation for why all surges began in Fiscal Year 2012,” Roberts said. “There are no changes in murder rates in 2012 that suggest an upsurge in violence in that year that would have triggered the surges…In El Salvador, the murder rate fell significantly in 2012,” and has been stable in Guatemala. “Given that the dramatic rise in Honduras’s murder rate and other reported crime began in 2009, it is surprising that its surge didn’t start before 2012.”

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.

  • Your what hurts??
Here's a thought problem for the group:  How much money have we spent in just the last 50 years, in foreign aid and assistance of all kinds, in Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador, Honduras, Panama, et al?  How much per illegal have we spent in just their lifetimes??

What the hell did they do with all that money that their countries are in such horrible condition that we have to accept a mass exodus as the only answer?? 

This whole thing is contrived and to no good purpose whatsoever.  Bring on the C-17s and start repatriating these people right goddam now.

trouble is, "they" didn't get to do anything with most of that money; the bulk of it made its way, eventually, into the pockets of corrupt government officials (but I repeat myself).

Has it made its way BACK TO OBAMA?
