Refugee Plan Set Up for Central American Minors

Jim Kuhnhenn, AP, September 30, 2014

The Obama administration is initiating a program to give refugee status to some young people from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in response to the influx of unaccompanied minors arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Under the program, immigrants from those countries who are lawfully in the United States will be able to request that child relatives still in those three countries be resettled in the United States as refugees. The program would establish in-country processing to screen the young people to determine if they qualify to join relatives in the U.S.

In a memorandum to the State Department Tuesday, President Barack Obama allocated 4,000 slots for refugees from Latin America and the Caribbean for next year. The number is a fraction of the number of children who have already crossed the border into the United States and are awaiting deportation proceedings.

The program would not provide a path for minors to join relatives illegally in the United States, and would not apply to minors who have entered the country illegally.

Instead, it aims to set up an orderly alternative for dealing with young people who otherwise might embark on a dangerous journey to join their families in the United States.


Under the plan, the U.S. would process refugee requests for youths in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. Similar in-country screening programs were set up in East Asia after the Vietnam War and in Haiti in the 1990s.

The plan was included in a White House memo to the State Department setting a total 2015 allocation of 70,000 refugees from Africa, East Asia, Europe and Central Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean and the Near East and South Asia. {snip}

  • Now you know why Obama isn’t going to do any sort of substantial amnesty type executive order in December. Because he doesn’t need to — Just find some pretext to give them refugee status one by one on the quiet.

    Remember, refugee is the new amnesty. Both seven letters long, both now mean the same thing.

      Liberals believe that if you call a thing something else, it will become something else. And it often works. It’s like magic.

  • AmericanCitizen

    When whites look back 40 years from now they will wonder why we sat around and watched our leaders actively change America’s demographic into a third world country.

    • dmxinc

      What is someone supposed to do? Fire the first shot?

      Voting doesn’t work, the demographics are already against us, the candidates fear “racism” above all else and the system (winner take all) is stacked against us.

      There are no other options except revolution, but I don’t think that will happen.

      • JP Rushton

        Even if there was a “revolution” in the US, I doubt our desired outcome would happen.

        The left also thinks that the government is too corrupt and too “conservative” and it too wishes for a revolution to bring socialism or communism to the US.

        Yes, there are many people on the left who think the government is controlled by “conservatives”. The Democrat propaganda to blame everything on the Republicans has obviously worked.

      • MBlanc46

        Voting doesn’t work. That’s for sure. We need to be a physical presence in the public domain.

      • mobilebay

        “Voting doesn’t work.” You’re right, it doesn’t. Nor does writing. If you write your Representatives about illegal immigration, you likely to get a reply on economics or energy and how much they’ve done to help the citizens of this nation. It’s insane. Washington is so out of touch, it’s pathetic.

    • veritas

      The few whites who will be left in America will live in gated communities surrounded by razor wire fences, and will pay non-white security patrols for protection. This is how whites now live in South Africa.

      • ghettovalley

        We should all just have lots of sons and lots of guns. Just like the old days, before our country became mentally ill.

  • Easyrhino

    How about a plan to benefit poor White kids from the Ukraine and South Afrika to immigrate to the USA?

    • Petronius

      Far more likely that Nerobama will set up refugee centers in West Africa to bring in the Ebola orphans.

      And while he’s at it, why not bring in all of Haiti? And Bangladesh, too? Yeah, we want all the melanin we can get!

  • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

    The innovations of the elect-a-new-people crowd in the White House never cease. Just a couple of weeks ago we had our first “domestic abuse” asylum claims upheld by an immigration court. From the Arizona Star:

    “The nation’s top immigration court ruled last week that women who suffer severe domestic violence in their country may be eligible for asylum in the United States — and that decision is already affecting hearings here.” (“Domestic violence now grounds for asylum,” By Perla Trevizo Spetember 05, 2014)

    • SentryattheGate

      Victums of domestic violence? Don’t all major cultures (except whites) have that as a given? Look at Latino (machismo) culture, Muslim culture, blacks; women get their best treatment with whites! Now, we’re going to be kicked aside by even more Thurd World immigration! And we never get asked for our opinion, yet get taxed for these “refugees”!

      • Anglo

        Yes! I believe in conspiracies. Taxpayers pay for all this evil-by-design and our own doom. It’s part of the plan. Taxpayers are roadkill.

        • SentryattheGate

          Sadly, I have to agree with you. If we could get control over our money again, that might help US? Recently,the US House passed it’s “Audit the Fed” bill by 333 to 92. Now if the Senate will pass it’s version, by Rand Paul, we may have hope? But I am cynical that even if it does pass, the books will be cooked! It will be interesting to watch Europe rise up against it’s elite, who flood them too, with immigrants that cost a lot; in $$$, in national disintegration and in crime and violence!

    • kjh64

      Domestic violence is a personal criminal matter. Asylum is supposed to be for those being persecuted by the government for whatever reason or refuges from a war, not for victims of crime by a criminal. Also, asylum seekers are supposed to go to the first safe country they come to, so for most of these people, it would not be the USA.

      • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

        Excellent point on the “personal criminal matter.”

  • Adolf Verloc

    We had an interesting review of David Stoll’s “El Norte or Bust!” a few weeks ago. Stoll, a leftish academic, pointed out the the Guatemalan Indians he studied were incredibly adept at making up tales of persecution to enhance the prospect of refugee status. Let’s bring refugee status back to its original concept and make most if not all refugees stay in neighboring countries.

  • dd121

    If it’s for any other reason than to destroy white America, I’d like to hear it.

    • Bossman

      So the premier nation of the world with a population of over 300 million people with a dominant population of European extraction could be destroyed by a few thousand children from a neighboring country? How so?

      • Mason Gull

        No one is saying that this single event is going to cause the fall of America by itself. I suggest that you read the comment again.

        • Dave West

          Exactly. It’s another nail in the coffin of white America

      • SentryattheGate

        Is that a REAL question? Don’t you know that whites are already a minority in seven states (if I remember correctly), and in many large cities? Don’t you know we are expected to be a minority by 2042, even before this latest info. about refugee asylum for domestic violence, and the refugee “kids” at the border?

        • Bossman

          Whites in the USA will only become a minority if they become stupid enough to open the gates wide for the countless hordes of East Asia and South Asia. A lot of so-called Hispanics already classify themselves as white.

          • SentryattheGate

            Hispanics may classify themselves as white but they bring their stinking culture (and low IQ) with them! And whites are not stupid enough to bring in these hordes—the US gov’t. and the EU gov’t. does that, AGAINST OUR WISHES!

          • propagandaoftruth

            Some Hispanics are white. Those with fair skin, Caucasian features and white average IQ seem White.

            Those counted in the national crime victims reports, however, include negroes and Aztecs galore.

          • SentryattheGate

            Oh, yes, I’m aware of that! They use the white status when it benefits them, but then separate themselves when they want to CROW about THEIR numbers, and THEIR increasing political clout, and gov’t grants for them, and Spanish in schools, and more representation in gov’t jobs and TV, and more and more and more for themselves! As La Raza (The Race) says “For our race everything, for all others, nothing!”. And “our” gov’t. gives them MILLIONS of dollars in grants every year! Increasingly, it will be THEIR gov’t. (under UN control)!

          • propagandaoftruth

            Real White Hispanics hate those sucios indios y negros jueputas. They’re insulted when considered one.

            I like real White Hispanics. Similar understanding of “human” nature to a White Southerner’s.

          • dd121

            The Hispanics that are classed by our leftist government as white are actually of Asian origin. You can’t say you didn’t know that. And yes, our government is stupid enough to flood the USA with 3rd world hordes. They’re actually not stupid, they have a deliberate political agenda to destroy our country as a goal.

      • propagandaoftruth

        I’m so glad you’re not posting pics of Kim Kardashian and passing them off as examples of a hot latina, and therefore reason to be oky doky with the brown Aztec inundation.

        I get more than enough of that looking at advertisements. That and Val Kilmers epic head and that bizarre looking skinny blonde.

        If you’re going to try to use examples of your women to tempt horny gringos to be OK with anything…

        At least appeal to our love of evil and throw out something like this…

        Oh wait – Salma Hayek is Mexican of Syrian descent. Whatever. Santanico Pandemonium indeed!

        • Bossman

          An albino snake is sexy to you? You must be a very sick person.

          • propagandaoftruth

            Wrong question, regarding who finds the albino snake sexy. Ms. Pandemonium seems to know how to handle that one.

            Kartrashian looks like an Armenian wannabe negress, because that’s what she is. So neither does the “average” nor does the “sexy” mestiza or latina really resemble Ms. Kartrashian.

            You got a sister you think looks like Kartrashian you trying to put out there, cunado? Sure she’s not some squat, swarthy, little “cuerpo de tuco” as my gracious ex-wife used to say, pura india?

            I mean sure man a Pocahantas here a Malinche there, no big deal, but cease trying to sell us a pig in a poke when you throw up Kartrashian as something even remotely desirable.

            You’re a sock puppet, aren’t you?

          • ghettovalley

            The average latina has a double digit IQ and is shaped like a mini fridge.

      • dd121

        Time. After applying these 3rd worlders for a period of several decades or even longer, this once great country will no longer retain its dominate European roots. The libs are willing to wait. You’re very naive if you think this is a one-time wave of immigrants.

      • dd121

        “The passenger pigeon won’t go extinct, there are hundreds of millions of them.”

      • veritas

        Rewarding a few thousand illegal aliens who happen to be children with refugee status creates a magnet which will attract a million more from those Central American countries alone. Nobody who enters this country illegally should be allowed to stay . Those who break the law and stay anyway should find the experience unpleasant. That is how you remove the magnet.

  • The globalists love puppet Obama. He sells all manner of anti-white policy changes on “humanitarian” grounds, thus defusing criticism except among hardcore “racists” like myself. The current trickle of brown skins can easily become a flood, and that’s the plan.

  • John Smith

    Can the mongrel in the white house please explain to us –

    How can we possibly benefit from importing MILLIONS of third worlders who collectively are:
    -far less educated and literate
    -far less job skilled
    -far more violent
    -pay fewer taxes are a huge net drain on housing, medical, educational, law enforcement resources

    Am I missing something here?

    Asian, M Eastern, African countries must be laughing themselves hysterical over this.

    • SentryattheGate

      This is a copy of my comment to another article, but it applies here too. …I think it’s part of the (UN) master Planners’ “social justice”agenda; to “equalize” the world. There’s anti-racist education K-12, brainwashing the kids to blame whitey for minorities’ problems, including lower grades. Then there’s the race-based achievement standards, where much more time and money will be spent on the lowest-performing students, at the expense of the higher-performing ones. The two do involve the issue of supposed “white priviledge”. So, schools (and therefore society) is dumbed-down, and the UN’s Agenda 21 wants it that way, especially for First World countries. I have seen the quote in their book, wherein they blame overconsumption & pollution on higher education “which leads to better jobs, w/higher incomes which leads to buying more stuff, thereby “harming the earth”. And, of course, the masses of Third Worlders immigrating here works to lower our collective IQ (and income), which fits in with the “master plan”! Wish I had reason to be more optimistic!

    • mobilebay

      “Am I missing something here?” How about the destruction of our language, our culture and our way of life?

  • Leon NJ

    …and then comes their aunties, uncles, cousins, friends down the road…

  • Anglo

    The news media keeps talking about the Secret Service and how terrible it would be if the President was assassinated. I wish someone would assassinate him.

    • OS-Q

      Oh-no-no-no that would be the only thing that would save him from disgrace – if you think their idealization of St. John the Kennedy was bad just imagine how bad the media and leftists today would wail and weep.

      • Anglo

        Yes, you’re right. Leftists would make him a great martyr, maybe greater than Martin Luther King, Jr.; but I’d dance on his grave. LOL

  • MBlanc46

    “[R]efugee is the new amnesty”.

    Nicely put.

  • SentryattheGate

    We, the vast majority of Americans HAVE been saying NO, w/o effect! Same as the Europeans! But it’s the government that has the money and the power—it hasn’t been our gov’t. for maybe 100 years! The Federal Reserve was instituted in 1913; they control our money, and with it, power. Therefore we are no longer asked for our consent to wars, to immigration, to sending our jobs overseas, etc, etc. We used to be asked IF we consent to more tax burden to fund certain gov’t. projects, now they don’t ask us, the Fed just prints more money for that project! And all the money they print makes the money in our pockets worth less, through inflation! And our sons are sent to lose their lives, their limbs and maybe their sanity in wars we didn’t have any say in! And meanwhile, the invaders pour across our borders—then we fund them too, again W/O OUR CONSENT!

  • archer

    Congress is worse than useless, where is all this money going to come from, never mind the social upheaval that it will cause, the further destruction of what’s left of our school system and society in general.

  • SentryattheGate

    Wow! Well said, I agree with you. The lefties are all about feelings instead of logic, and their supposed “moral superiority”. They talk about protecting natural resources, then welcome hordes of immigrants! Let those Third Worlders reduce their birthrate like the First World has done! Yep, it’s always about power. It’s never about wisdom.
