    Greece’s government says it has finalized plans to build a wall along its northeast border with Turkey, over concerns that migrants may try to stage mass crossings into the European Union country. Government spokesman Stelios Petsas said Monday that 26 kilometers (16 miles) of wall would be added to an existing 10-kilometer (six-mile) section of fence in a 63-million-euro ($74 million) project due to be completed by the end of April... Police officials on Monday told The Associated Press that a surveillance camera network was also planned to cover the entire 192-kilometer (120-mile) Greek-Turkish border, while police have already started...

    I got a call from my son in Calif about 1 pm Tuesday. He was listening to police scanner.. said a fire was coming my way... didn't make sense, this area has never had a fire. It's the city! I went outside in our beautiful peaceful Sr. retirement village to a bank of thick smoke and saw a raging fire. It seemed 10 miles away. The wind was whipping in every direction and took me off my feet several times. I've been through this before living in the woods of No. Calif. I was prepared then. This home was in...

    Austria: Muslim migrant attacks Jewish leader with baseball bat AUG 25, 2020 11:00 AM BY ROBERT SPENCER The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. The Jews in the Qur’an are called the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people...

    A Rwandan refugee could face up to 10 years in prison after admitting setting fire to Nantes cathedral. The 39-year-old man, who has solely been identified by his first name Emmanuel, worked as a volunteer security guard at the 15th-century Cathedral of Saint Peter and Saint Paint which set alight last week. Three fires had been started at the site on July 18 and it took 104 firefighters to control the blaze which tore through the building and caused millions of pounds worth of damage. The Rwandan refugee was questioned for a second time yesterday by prosecutors and he was...

    Global News (Canada) ^ | July 22, 2020 | Brian Hill
    The Federal Court has ruled that the Safe Third Country Agreement (STCA), which allows Canada to send certain refugee claimants back to the United States, is unconstitutional. Released Wednesday, the decision from Justice Ann McDonald explicitly states that the U.S. is no longer a safe country for refugees sent back from Canada due to the risk of imprisonment... Although McDonald’s ruling clearly states the STCA is unconstitutional, the decision does not take effect for six months, during which time the law remains in force... that decision does not come in effect until January 22nd 2021.

    Each refugee approved for admission to the United States is sponsored by a resettlement agency... Nine religious or community-based organizations, called resettlement agencies, have contracts with the Department of State to resettle refugees inside the United States. These agencies (formerly known as "volags") maintain nationwide networks of local affiliates to provide services to refugees, including reception on arrival in the United States, placement, support with housing, community orientation, help accessing health services, enrollment in various benefits and welfare programs, employment, etc. Resettlement agency representatives determine where refugees are resettled in the United States... Thus, as a general matter, refugees are...

    Here is still more of the general European tendency to ascribe all Islamic jihad activity to mental illness. But no European authorities have any cure. “The death of pensioner Detlef in Offenburg: a murder based on Islamic motives,” translated from “Der Tod von Rentner Detlef in Offenburg: Ein Mord aus islamischen Motiven,” by Michael Stürzenberger, PI News, April 21, 2020 (thanks to Medforth Blog): As is so often the case, a murder based on Islamic motives is pushed back into the psychiatric area in Offenburg. Muslim Ali. M, a “refugee” from Somalia, gave the classic Islam battle cry “Allahu Akbar”...

    Refugee contractors, like the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) and Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), have issued statements supporting House Democrats’ “No Ban Act” to end presidential-issued travel bans and continued refugee resettlement into the U.S. The State Department has halted refugee resettlement in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, though a handful of “emergency” refugees have been resettled over the last week. Refugee contractors have a vested interest in making sure as many refugees are resettled across the U.S. as possible because their annual federally-funded budgets are contingent on the number of refugees they resettle. “While we understand...

When he finally stopped the attack, Clarke called the police. But then he returned: ... The neighbor stabbed Clarke in the head and...

    BALTIMORE — A Syrian refugee who escaped his war-torn country in 2016 and took a job delivering pizzas in Baltimore to help support his family was gunned down earlier this month on a street less than five minutes from his workplace, authorities said. Khaled Heeba, 31, was fatally shot Feb. 7 in the 1300 block of W. Franklin Street, Baltimore police officials said. They released video last week that they allege shows Heeba’s possible killer in the moments before and after the shooting.

    My friend, Venerable Phuoc Tan, was a refugee from communist oppression in Vietnam and is a Buddhist Abbot. He has established a magnificent temple on a clifftop above the Maribyrnong River near Melbourne. VPT is a custodian of conservative, traditional values which nations like Australia desperately need, but are tragically destroying in a process that I describe as insane, suicidal self-destruction (cf Pat Buchanan “Suicide of a Superpower”) How have Vietnamese refugees contributed to American life? If you look at the little video clip here (https://tujuhbelasan.com/2019/12/17/sustainable-development-1-spiritual-control/) you can see an Australian World War Two Veteran, Trooper Al Godfrey, chatting with...

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has told the Trump administration that he doesn't want his state to participate in the federal government's refugee resettlement program, making his state the first to opt out. On Friday, Abbott told Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that "Texas cannot consent to initial refugee resettlement" for fiscal year 2020, saying that the state already has enough on its plate to deal with. "In addition to accepting refugees all these years, Texas has been left by Congress to deal with disproportionate migration issues resulting from a broken federal immigration system," Abbot's explains. Additionally, he wrote that...

    BISMARCK, N.D. (KFGO) - The Burleigh County Commission has shot down a non-binding straw poll that would have been put on the June ballot asking voters if the county should continue to accept refugees for resettlement. The Monday night 3-2 vote was the same as the commission vote last month not to accept more than 25 refugees in 2020. Commissioner Brian Bittner proposed putting the question up for a public vote after some residents asked him to do it. Bittner is among those opposed to refugee resettlement. Commission Chairman Jerry Woodcox said after the meeting that he thinks a straw...

The suspect, 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson, immigrated from Sudan two decades ago, police said. He's suspected of bringing two pistols and a mask to the predominantly white Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, southeast of Nashville, before opening fire just after 11 a.m.

    South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg faced a flurry of criticism on Christmas day after he suggested that Jesus Christ entered into the world as a refugee. “Today I join millions around the world in celebrating the arrival of divinity on earth, who came into this world not in riches but in poverty, not as a citizen but as a refugee,” he tweeted. His tweet came just days after the 2020 presidential candidate released his plan calling for a significant increase in refugee admissions and setting an admissions minimum of 95,000. Buttigieg’s policy paper specifically recalls Biblical language to support...

    Warning: graphic and disturbing details. In an Edmonton courtroom Wednesday, convicted murderer Silva Koshwal leaned back in the prisoner's box, eyes closed, head resting against the wooden wall behind him. Later, the prosecutor said it was "like he was sitting at the beach enjoying the sun." Koshwal faces an automatic life sentence with no chance of parole for 10 to 25 years for stabbing his former girlfriend Nadine Skow more than 100 times, then removing some of her organs. Crown prosecutor Laurie Trahan said the crime scene was so horrific, at least one of the responding police officers had to...

    The White House is considering a plan that would keep most refugees who are fleeing war, persecution and famine out of the United States, significantly cutting back a decades-old program, according to current and former administration officials. One option that top officials are weighing would cut refugee admissions by half or more, to 10,000 to 15,000 people, but reserve most of those spots for people from a few countries or from groups with special status, such as Iraqis and Afghans who work alongside American troops, diplomats and intelligence operatives abroad. Another option, proposed by a top administration official, would reduce...
