    A third wave of 'child' migrants arrived in Britain from the Calais Jungle today - but the Home Office refused to carry out dental checks to prove their real age. Around 12 migrants - all burly lads aged anywhere between 15 and 21 - were escorted off a coach and taken inside a Home Office building, before being released. It came as the row over the age of migrants intensified after officials revealed two-thirds of 'child' refugees quizzed about their age last year were found to be adults. At least 100 more child migrants are expected to arrive in the...

    As we reported last week, a presentation on refugees was scheduled last night at the St. Ann Catholic Church in Arlington, Virginia. The event took place as planned. It was entitled “Refugee Resettlement in the U.S.: A National and Local Humanitarian Response”, and was jointly presented by officials of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement and Catholic Charities. Last night’s event was more important than it might seem at first glance. After all, it was just a little PowerPoint slide show given to a few dozen people by a government official about the wonderful cultural enrichment that will be brought...

    Horror! Asylum seeker cut off victims’ eyelids, ears and nose. Stabbed eyeballs. Police officers caught the 19-year-old tormentor during the mutilation of his victim Schlüchtern, Germany — What took place in the small town in east Hesse on Saturday exceeded the human imagination in its cruelty. The eyelids, ears and nose wings were cut off from an 18-year-old Somali. But even then his torturer did not stop! Even the prosecutor’s office has to look for words for the horror, the background of which is still in the dark. As reported by chief prosecutor Jürgen Heinze Osthessen-News on Monday, the horror...

    While the nation is absorbed with presidential election theatrics, the Obama administration continues letting huge amounts of illegal immigrants to pour in through the southern border and the latest figures released by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are incredibly chilling. The number of family units apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol in the first 11 months of fiscal year 2016 nearly doubled from the previous year, according to updated information released by the agency. The majority of these illegal border crossers will remain in the country under Obama’s special refugee and family reunification programs. Fiscal years run from October...

Neither do mayors, landlords, or homeowners have the right to block the placement of refugees in their towns, buildings, or households if that is what the President determines is in the best interest of the country. The idea that any of these other parties can refuse to cooperate in the refugee relocation program just because they deem it dangerous is not supported by law or the Constitution."...

His head throbbed so badly, he wasn’t even able to comb his hair properly before testifying.

The Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany had around 5.6 million visitors this year, down 300,000 since last year and the lowest number since just after the September 11th 2001 terror attacks, according to FAZ. The drop in the number of attendees follows a series of attacks in the German state of Bavaria.

    Before he was Donald Trump's vice-presidential pick, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) took a politically popular, if legally questionable, stand: There would be no Syrian refugees resettled in his state, not after the attacks in Paris last fall carried out in part by Islamist terrorists who masqueraded as Syrian migrants. On the day before the vice-presidential debate, his biggest moment as Trump's running mate, Pence's stand on Syrian refugees received a likely fatal blow: A federal appeals court ruled Monday that Pence has no legal authority to stop the resettlement of these refugees in Indiana.

    Yesterday we previewed the referendum in Hungary where President Viktor Orban sought a consensus from the public on EU mandated resettlement of Syrian immigrants in their nation. The technicality we discussed came to pass and less than 50% of the eligible voters turned out, so the results are not considered official. Still, the president has made no secret of his disdain for such mandates from the European Union and his concerns over a potential flood of Islamic settlers. With that in mind, the results of the vote are clearly not going to be slowing him down. No sooner was the...

Texas' top elected officials have not exactly welcomed refugees over the past year. Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing the federal government — thus far unsuccessfully — to keep people fleeing war-ravaged Syria from settling here. Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller compared refugees to venomous rattlesnakes. And Friday, Gov. Greg Abbott followed through on his threat to end cooperation with the nation’s refugee resettlement program because federal officials refused to “unconditionally approve” a Texas plan requiring extra vetting of applicants.

Judge Richard Posner, writing for the three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, said there’s no evidence that Syrians are more dangerous, and he said even if they are, allowing Indiana to refuse to resettle them would only foist the problem onto neighboring states. “Federal law does not allow a governor to deport to other...

Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, could not deny that in many cases there is no data from the refugee’s home country that would corroborate or refute his story. He tried to reassure the committee by saying the screening process is lengthy and continuously being improved, noting that the United Nations pre-screens the refugees before his...

The Syrians are among 85,000 refugees from all over the world who have been resettled in the fiscal year that ends late this week, said Ann Richard, the assistant secretary of state for population, refugees and migration. That is up from 70,000 in the previous year. The White House aims to admit 110,000 refugees over the next 12 months.~SNIP~

    One hot-button issue in the first Presidential debate will be the Syrian and other refugees that are allowed into the country. The vetting process of asylum seekers for resettlement in the United States usually takes between 18 to 24 months.

And on August 29, White House spokesman Josh Earnest announced, “this goal that was met a month ahead of schedule.”

Not surprisingly, most who make this ignorant comparison cannot name the ship. The 1939 incident occurred in peace time, and its passengers sought refuge because they were subject to discriminatory laws solely based on their ethnic and/or religious background (being Jewish is widely accepted as both an...

    The State Department painted it as an elegant way out of a ballooning crisis involving Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng — but by day’s end, it looked like a disgraceful performance by US diplomats. Initial reports had Chen so pleased by the deal that he told Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, “I want to kiss you.” The agreement Clinton negotiated with Beijing yesterday supposedly allowed Cheng to stay in China and get medical attention, with the authorities guaranteeing his future safety. But things started unraveling just hours after the compromise was inked. First, while State claims Chen never wanted to leave...

    President Obama on Tuesday will lead a special summit on the need to take in Syrian refugees, just days after weekend terrorist attacks that are raising more questions about whether the U.S. should be cracking down on immigration instead of opening the doors further. Plans for Obama to lead the summit were months in the making, long before Ahmad Khan Rahami allegedly planted a pressure cooker bomb in New York that detonated, injuring 29 people. Rahami, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Afghanistan, is also thought to be responsible for bombs discovered in New Jersey. The incident puts real pressure...

    Donald Trump has been widely scorned by the liberal elite for his stances on immigration. Trump called for a pause in immigration to "find out what’s going on.” Not unexpectedly, that statement was bastardized by the liberal media into a total and complete ban on Muslims for all time. In August Trump refined his plan to call for "extreme vetting" of immigrants: To fight “radical Islamic terrorism” and to “make America safe again,” Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump proposed today administering a new, ideological test for immigrants who want to enter the United States. “We should only admit into this...

    Impatient at the slow progress toward integrating Middle Eastern immigrants into the German economy, Chancellor Angela Merkel demanded that businesses "step up the pace of hiring. It's a disgrace that only 100 of the million refugees that have entered the country this year have jobs. The refusal of the private sector to offer enough jobs forces the government to bear the burdens of meeting the need to house and feed these people." Hans Volle, Director of Human Resources for Deutsche Tech, complained that "Chancellor Merkel's aspirations are unreasonable. Hardly any of these refugees understand our language, a majority of them...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CN) — Nestled under the dominating silhouette of Mt. Shasta in northernmost California is a bustling community of Vietnam War refugees and Hmong-Americans seeking solitude in normally tranquil Siskiyou County. Hundreds of newly settled Hmong residents sought calm in the mountainous terrain, but many say they have collided with a sheriff hell-bent on restricting their voting and property rights. Alleging systematic voter suppression in the June primary and subsequent racial profiling by Siskiyou County Sheriff Jon Lopey, 10 Hmong property owners sued the sheriff and Siskiyou County on Monday in Federal Court. "I remember the panic and the...
