  • The stunning way a Catholic cardinal marked the deaths of refugees in the Mediterranean

    Someone who lets people drown in the Mediterranean also drowns God — every day, thousands of times." The archbishop of the city of Cologne, Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki, found these striking words on Thursday to condemn Europe's increasingly tough attitude toward refugees. He spoke during a special church service, which took place in one of the German city's main squares. Woelki also used a seven-meter-long former refugee boat as his altar for the service to celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi. The boat had previously been recovered by the Maltese military during a search-and-rescue operation. The cardinal emphasized the significance...

    A decade ago, Anabel Garcia Romo, then a 17-year-old attending Garfield High School, took part in the epic May Day march through the streets of downtown Los Angeles. She was drawn to the protest because she had friends and family who were in the country illegally and she opposed a proposal in Congress that would have made them felons. Garcia called the day a defining moment in her life. But in the years since, nothing -- not even Donald Trump -- has compelled her back to the streets.

    The Department of Labor has awarded Utica, New York, $2 million to teach young refugees how to build drones as part of a summer jobs program. About 400 teenage refugee students living in the city will get part-time summer jobs through the program, as well as tutoring in English and Math. Those who demonstrate academic competence will then take part in a year-long drone building challenge during the school year, as the work and tutoring continues. The 14- and 15-year-old refugee students will learn how to design a drone and then construct their own model using the lab of the...

    If a new U.S. administration blocks the flow of remittances — the estimated $20 billion that Mexicans working in the U.S. send home each year — then joint efforts to stop money laundering and other illicit forms of finance will be dealt a dangerous setback, a senior Mexican official warned Thursday. Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has vowed, if elected, to make Mexico pay to build a wall along the entire Southwest border, even if it means impounding remittance payments. Fernando Aportela, Mexico’s deputy secretary for finance, said any attempt to seize remittances would force Mexicans to hide...

Many Swedes wondered if offering courses in Swedish to the Arabic-speaking immigrants would not be more productive. The library, however, does not offer any such service. The Immigration Service released a new report on April 8, entitled "Are You Married?", which showed how its own case officers allow child marriages. Swedish authorities have approved hundreds of polygamous marriages among immigrants, law professor Göran Lind revealed on April 4.

    London’s Cockney culture is being driven out of one of its last remaining bastions, Newham in East London, which has seen its white population halved in the last 15 years. The area now has the lowest white population in London leading to pubs and working men’s clubs are closing down and a loss of Christian traditions. The borough of Newham lies just five miles east of the City of London, banking capital of the world, but locals say it now looks less like a British city, more like Baghdad.

In a statement released by Citadel President Lt. Gen.

    Germany’s statistics office has recorded the highest number of immigrants in postwar history. Net immigration increased by 49 percent in 2015 and for the first time, most of the arrivals were not from Europe. […] The (Federal Statistics) office registered in 2015 under two million immigrants arriving in Germany, while 860,000 departed again. The figures are based on the numbers from January to August 2015 and estimates for the four remaining months of the year. […] The announcement comes as Germany and other European countries struggle to cope with an influx of irregular migrants and refugees, many fleeing war-torn countries...
  • Refugee resettlement in U.S. hardly work of sacrificial charity

    Guest View (op ed) Readers impressed by Mary Poole’s February 26th guest opinion, “Facts show Missoula can safely welcome refugees,” might want to learn about contemporary realities in refugee resettlement that Poole, co-founder of Soft Landing Missoula, didn’t mention. First, refugee resettlement in the U.S. is hardly the work of private, sacrificial charity that one might expect from the names — such as Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, and Episcopal Migration Ministries — of prominent national “voluntary agencies,” or “volags,” involved. For example, International Rescue Committee [IRC], the volag that Poole says would plant refugees in...

    A senior German academic has joined the chorus of voices expressing concern over the low educational standards of newly arriving migrants, and the significant knock-on effects that is bound to have on the German educational system. President of the University of Hamburg and chairman of the German Educational Action Council Dieter Lenzen has pointed to the enormous cost of teaching hundreds of thousands of newcomers basic language skills, pointing in particular to the Syrian community. While the proportion of Syrians arriving and claiming to have university degrees — around 15 per cent — isn’t much below the German population as...

    Here is the fulcrum around which so much of the problem turns: the belief that Islamic law has every right to be put into practice in non-Muslim countries, and the insistence that a parallel, if unequal, legal system can function alongside civil and criminal law codes adhered to by a majority of a country's citizens. Salafism is a form of Islam that insists on the application of whatever was said or done by Muhammad or his companions ... The greatest expression of this failure to integrate, indeed a determined refusal to do so, may be found in the roughly 750...

    In a post debate interview with Sean Hannity, Ohio governor John Kasich called a past immigration vote of his "amnesty." Watch here: -snip- Look, I was there when Reagan did the amnesty thing. I was there -- amnesty -- I was there in '86. I voted for the bill.

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich stuck by his desire for a path to legalization for illegal immigrants in the United States during a Q&A with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday. He described the idea of deporting millions of illegal immigrants from the U.S. as unacceptable. "The idea that we're going to pick these people up and ship them out is unbelievable," Kasich said. "It's just not acceptable in America." Kasich, eighth in the Washington Examiner's power rankings, did not explicitly rule out a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants during his remarks to the Hispanic group, but said...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative CDU party was humiliated in key regional elections on Sunday as voters delivered their verdict at the ballot box about her open-door refugee policies. Exit poll results in three out of 16 German states foretell a wipeout in next year's general election as the hard-right capitalized on public disquiet and altered the political landscape forever. Baden-Wuerttemberg - solidly middle class and home to blue chip companies like Porsche and Daimler - was won by the Green Party after Merkel's CDU lost nearly 11 percent support since the last vote there in 2011.

    Republican presidential candidate John Kasich said Wednesday that Donald Trump’s call to ban most Muslims from the United States would weaken the nation and “doesn’t represent what we are.” “This is not what leads to a strong America,” Mr. Kasich said during an appearance at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. “We have never been strong by focusing on things designed to divided us.” -snip- Mr. Kasich also said that he is encouraged by how moderate Muslims have come out against the Islamic State terror group, or ISIS. “They have condemned aggressively the attacks all over the word,”...
  • Two 10-year-old schoolgirls molested and a woman's trousers ripped off: sleepy Swedish town

    The streets are deserted after dark in a sleepy Swedish town which is a now no-go zone for women after eight sex attacks in three weeks. Women have been warned by police not to walk alone at night after the once peaceful town of Östersund was shaken to its core by a string of vicious attacks on females and even children by groups of young men of 'foreign origin'. First, two 10-year-old girls were groped at a bus stop by a gang of men who threatened to rape them. The following day, a woman told police she was punched in...
