If you're like me, when I hear the word "refugee", I think of the millions who have been forced to flee their homelands due to political wars, or ethnic and religious persecution, such as that in Syria, Iraq or Sudan. And if you're the U.N., and trying to interfere with our internal policies, then the word "refugee" is a much easier sell than "illegal immigrant."
I guess our sovereign laws aren't good enough for the U.N. It's not enough that these people are ineligible for asylum according to our existing laws. The U.N. wants to create a new refugee status that fits the dynamics of the illegal immigrants, thereby giving us no excuse for denying them entry into the country.
According to a report by CBS News, it is the hope of officials with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees that a meeting tomorrow between representatives from the U.S., Mexico, and Central America will result in an updating of a 30-year-old declaration regarding the obligations nations have to aid refugees. That update would see "refugee" also defined as anyone fleeing armed conflict, or fleeing violence and extortion at the hands of criminal gangs.
Although any resolution coming out of this meeting would lack legal significance in the U.S., that doesn't stop the U.N. Commission from declaring that it believes “the U.S. and Mexico should recognize that this is a refugee situation, which implies that they shouldn’t be automatically sent to their home countries but rather receive international protection.”
Excuse me, but where is the "international" part of this solution? All the burden is going to land right at our feet. Mexico certainly won't be doing their share ... in fact, they are aiding the transportation of these poor people right to our doorstep. It's quite obvious that these illegal immigrants will not become citizens of the international community or any other nation, for that matter.
And just what is the ultimate goal for the politicians in Washington D.C.? Is it Amnesty for all these illegal immigrants? Is it to flood Texas with potential new voters that will turn the state into a never-ending Democrat-voting machine? Is there no consideration for the brutality that these people are subjected to on their march north? And what exactly is the thinking behind dropping busloads of them on unsuspecting towns throughout the U.S.? And the big, fat, ugly elephant in the room is the fact that we all know that it is not just innocent children and families that are being let in. Why not just hang a Welcome sign at the border, inviting in the drug cartel members and terrorists?
Frankly, I'm not seeing anyone doing anything to solve this problem. Yes, it is a "humanitarian crisis", as the news media and the politicians like to call it --- but it is much more than that. It could become the catalyst that finally destroys our economy, our national security and our sovereignty. And who is going to stop it? We better be praying to God for an answer soon.
