  • French Prime Minister: Europe can't take any more refugees

    EU countries are lining up in opposition to German Chancellor Angela Merkel's open door refugee policy with some countries closing their borders and others establishing strict border controls to try and slow the flood of refugees. Not Merkel. The German leader is defiantly standing by her policy despite the Paris attacks, even though her position is putting enormous strain on her government coalition.

    Canada will accept only whole families, lone women or children in its mass resettlement of Syrian refugees while unaccompanied men – considered a security risk – will be turned away. Since the Paris attacks launched by Syria-linked jihadis, a plan by the new prime minister, Justin Trudeau, to fast-track the intake of 25,000 refugees by year’s end has faced growing criticism in Canada. Details of the plan will be announced Tuesday but Canada’s ambassador to Jordan confirmed that refugees from camps in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey will be flown to Canada from Jordan starting 1 December. Speaking in Jordan on...

    Mike FlynnNovember 21, 2015 A Super PAC tied to Ohio Governor John Kasich is annnouncing a new multi-million dollar effort to torpedo Donald Trump’s campaign for the Republican nomination. Trump’s continued dominance of national and state-level polling has vexed the GOP establishment and pushed it to near-panic as voting nears. A recent survey of public attitudes by Reuters/Ispos, though, suggests caution for the GOP establishment. Whatever failings there may be in his specific policies, Donald Trump’s campaign has tapped into a strong, visceral feeling of millions of Americans. Seeking to destroy Trump, the candidate, may further alienate the Republican party...

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) and President Obama vowed they would block a House-passed measure to increase scrutiny of refugees from Syria and Iraq. Concern that terrorists might be hiding among those seeking to escape the war zone led to a veto-proof 289-137 bipartisan majority favoring the bill. Under the bill, the Department of Homeland Security, FBI and director of National Intelligence would have to certify a refugee posed no security threat before he or she could be admitted into the United States. "Only a tiny minority of the Syrians who come to this country are likely to be...

    When my newlywed wife and I took a bus from Istanbul to Munich in 1972, we were surprised to see that almost all of our fellow travelers were Turkish workmen. We discovered that Germans were looking for cheap labor, and the Turks were filling these spots. We were young, naïve, and liberal, and we felt that the Germans were doing a good thing. We didn’t stop to think how these Muslim fundamentalists would fit in with modern Munich. This was a couple of months before the Palestinians massacred the Israeli Olympic team. The workers on our bus were not Palestinians....

After a number of governors have said, not only no but hell no to more Syrian “refugees” coming into their states, senators are working at putting such a ban – or at least a “pause” – in place on a national level. Ted Cruz fired off a letter to the DHS already this week advising a hold and he told CNN today that he wanted to get a bill put in motion. No sooner had he done that than Rand Paul came out and said he...

    I wonder if Hillary Clinton is still sticking by her call, made in September, to admit tens of thousands of Syrian “refugees” into the United States with all due haste. Her former boss, Barack Obama, has still been holding to some slightly more modest numbers in the range of ten thousand. Neither of those plans may even come close to appeasing some elements of their base, such as one writer at The Atlantic who tosses all those pesky numbers out the window and proclaims that we should just take in all of them. Yes… all of them.What could possibly...

Ellwangen, which has a population of around 23,500 and a strong Catholic community, was recently inundated with 4,500 asylum seekers who are staying in the old army barracks on the edge of town. The original plan was to house just 500 immigrants, but this quickly ballooned to ten times that...

    A group of North African migrants living in a tent city in Stockholm have been found guilty of brutally gang-raping a 23-year-old woman in yet another example of how Europe’s open border madness is exacerbating the sexual abuse of women. The attack, which took place two months ago on the island of Södermalm, began when the migrants approached the young woman, who was crying, and attempted to console her. The men took the woman to a viewpoint overlooking the city and all appeared to be calm before one of them, “gripped her neck, ripped her clothes off and raped her,”...

    Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (S-Vt) told voters that he will “bring an end to the Islamophobia that has stained our country. Americans’ fear of terrorism is excessive. Muslims in this country aren’t massacring people. There is no cause for anyone to be apprehensive or mistrustful toward them. Suppressing such irrational fears will be a major emphasis in my administration.” The possibility that fear of Muslim immigrants might be warranted escaped Sanders’ purview. For example, since opening its borders to a surge of Muslim immigration, Sweden has experienced a 1400% increase in rapes and now ranks second in the world...

    A century ago the Rust Belt was the country's industrial heartland, with cities like Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Detroit innovating manufacturing processes that drew, among others, large numbers of European and Latin immigrants. When industrial decline eliminated well-paid blue-collar jobs, entire families of new Americans left for more foreign-friendly metropolises to find better work opportunities and living conditions. Today, many of these once-dominant industrial cities are taking steps to attract immigrants and refugees as a way to reverse a half-century of population decline. Welcoming groups in Cleveland, Dayton, Detroit and St. Louis promote immigrant integration within the region, while public officials...

    'He's Back' is based on Vermes' 'what-if' best-seller of the same name, published three years ago. In it, Hitler is baffled to find himself in a multicultural Germany led by a woman, Chancellor Angela Merkel. He discovers TV chefs, Wikipedia and the fact that Poland still exists before he ends up a small-screen star, in a social commentary on society, mass media and celebrity hype. But the film goes a step further than the novel, and intersperses the action with real life documentary footage - including footage of people welcoming back the despotic mass murderer with open arms.

Of course, we've seen it many times: Muslims do not adapt. Non-Muslims must adapt to them. And so it is here. But if our society and culture were healthy, the President and politicians all over the country would be rushing to the aid of Lewiston's mayor, instead of letting him twist in the wind.

    New government procedures have caused more than 400,000 immigrants to lose healthcare coverage they received under Obamacare this year, according to the Associated Press. The change in procedure shortens the timeframe during which foreign-born citizens can resolve eligibility issues, which has caused 423,000 people to lose their state-sponsored benefits. The healthcare law provides a 95-day window for citizens to resolve documentation issues and remain eligible for coverage. The time-marker was not in place in 2014, because that was the first year of HealthCare.govs expanded coverage. A total of 109,000 people lost coverage due to immigration-related issues in 2014.

    McALLEN, Texas Two illegal aliens from Mexico joined forces with human smugglers to kidnap and torture unsuspecting illegal immigrants being held at a stash house. Instead of charging the group with hostage taking or kidnapping charges, prosecutors charged them with human smuggling. Federal authorities this week raided a house in the border city of Mission, where they arrested a group of illegal immigrants as well as Arthur Flores, a U.S citizen, and two illegal aliens from Mexico described as his henchmen. The two henchmen had been tasked with holding the immigrants under threats of violence, court records obtained by...

    Donald Trump has vowed to deport every single one of the country's illegal immigrants and rescind any executive orders Barack Obama put in place to protect them. 'We're going to keep the families together, but they have to go,' Trump told NBC's Meet the Press in an interview that is set to air on Sunday morning. Asked by host Chuck Todd about illegal immigrants who might have nowhere else to go, Trump said: 'We will work with them. 'They have to go ... we either have a country, or we don't have a country,' he added. Trump, 69, also said...

    Having stamped out a number of tropical diseases including malaria decades ago, is America today complacent about a rising wave of infectious disease? By Carrie Arnold. 11 August 2015 One rainy Friday morning in March 2015, Dr Laila Woc-Colburn saw two patients with neurocysticercosis (a parasitic infection of the brain) and one with Chagas disease, which is transmitted by insects nicknamed kissing bugs.

    Companies owned by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump have sought at least 1,100 foreign worker visas since 2000a practice that stands in stark contrast to Trumps self-portrayal as a presidential candidate who would create and project American jobs. A Reuters analysis of Department of Labor data shows that nine Trump-majority-owned companies have applied to bring waitresses, cooks, vineyard workers, and other laborers into the country on foreign worker visas. Most of the visa applications have gained approval, Reuters says. Palm Beach, Fla., resort Mar-a-Lago Club has sought the most foreign workers of the nine Trump-owned businesses. It has submitted applications for...

    Refugee Resettlement Watch ^ | August 7, 2015 | Ann Corcoran
    Why the next seven weeks? Because fiscal year 2015 ends on September 30th and the settlers in the US State Department and in their contracting agencies want to hit the Obama target of 70,000 for the year and they have (as of July 31), 18,470 more to go! Actually that 70,000 figure that Obama announced in his Presidential Determination Letter to Congress last September is meant to be a ceiling, not a goal that they necessarily have to hit. However, since the contractors are paid by the head and they have salaries and office overhead to pay, they always try...

    Latest updates: Calais migrants crisis caused by 'swarm' of people trying to reach Britain, says David Cameron Around 150 illegal immigrants are reaching Britain from Calais each night, it is feared, as the Government faces demands for tougher action including calls from one police commissioner to send in the Gurkhas. Theresa May, the Home Secretary, led an emergency Cobra meeting on Wednesday while the Channel Tunnel operators turned on the British and French governments for failing to act. Mrs May was dealt a further setback as senior judges banned a fast-track detention scheme used to process migrants who reach Britain...

    Is Mexico adopting an old British practice from the colonial era? Is Donald Trump correct when he says Mexico is sending some of its criminals into the United States mixed in with otherwise law abiding immigrants? During the colonial period Britain cut the cost of operating jails by sentencing some of its criminals to penal transportation to the North American colonies. After the American Revolution transportation meant being sent to Australia or New Zealand. The practice was particularly common with Irish and Scottish criminals and is mentioned in some Irish folk songs
