    70 MEN held in Australian offshore detention will soon be told if moving to USA

    70 MEN held in Australian offshore detention will soon be told if they are moving to Anytown, USA

    It is truly insane. You really must unload on the White House and on your members of Congress and Senators to stop this awful “deal” with Australia.

    If you are new to RRW, see my post here last week and be sure to read Nayla Rush’s (CIS) detailed accounting of the insanity, here.

    From Today Online:
    SYDNEY – The United States will tell dozens of refugees held in an Australian-run offshore detention center whether they will be offered resettlement in America within six weeks, two detainees told Reuters on Friday.

    The deadline marks the first concrete timetable for a U.S.-Australia refugee swap arrangement that sparked tensions between the strong allies after President Donald Trump described it as “a dumb deal” for America.

    So whose brilliant idea was this? According to Nayla Rush at CIS, it was Anne Richard, Obama’s Asst. Sec. of State for PRM who said this: Richard told reporters she was approached by the Australian embassy in Washington, D.C.: “When the Australians first came to us my motivation was let’s do this, let’s make this happen, we have got to get these individuals to a better place.”

    U.S. officials representing Homeland Security this week returned to Papua New Guinea’s Manus Island, home to one of two Australian-administered detention centers in the Pacific, to conduct medical examinations on 70 men.

    Extreme vetting involved six hours of questioning (oh boy, that is rough)! Any chance they used lie detector tests?

    The men last month completed “extreme vetting” interviews that lasted up to six hours, with in-depth questions on associates, family, friends and any interactions with the Islamic State militant group.
    After completing the medical tests, refugees were told to expect a decision on their resettlement applications within six weeks, two of the Manus Island detainees told Reuters.
    [….]
    It is not clear how many of the 70 men vetted will be accepted for resettlement in the United States. The refugees include men from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Myanmar. [These from Myanmar, aka Burma, are likely Rohingya Muslims.—ed]

    [….]
    In exchange, Australia has pledged to take Central American refugees from a center in Costa Rica, where the United States has taken in a larger number of people in recent years. [A ‘deal’ implies that both sides get something. Again, why are any mostly economic migrants who got to Costa Rica our problem?—ed]
    The swap is designed, in part, to help Australia close one of its offshore centers that is expensive to run and has been widely criticized by the United Nations and others over treatment of detainees.

    [….]

    Australia’s hardline immigration policy requires asylum seekers intercepted at sea trying to reach Australia to be sent for processing to camps at Manus and on the South Pacific island of Nauru. They are told they will never be settled in Australia.

    So Australia has a hardline immigration policy and we bail them out??? And, to add insult to injury, you won’t be told if any of Australia’s illegal aliens (they are not refugees!) will be placed in your towns!

    Illegal aliens (or legitimate refugees) who get to Australia are Australia’s problem, not ours! Imagine a scenario where some Africans came across our southern border, asked for asylum (although there is no way of screening them) and we asked Australia to take them. Would that ever happen? No!
    And, remember this! Australia needs us more than we need them!

    Continue here.

    President Trump’s first instinct to call this a “dumb deal” was right, the only thing dumber is to know that and go ahead with it anyway!
    For my complete Australia archive, go here where this becomes post #204.

    Photo: Anne Richard was the Asst. Secretary of State for the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) for Obama. She came to that job from the International Rescue Committee (I wrote about them yesterday, here). She represents the classic revolving door since she worked earlier in her career at the DOS, then went to the private contractor job, and then back to dole out refugees and your money to her contractor comrades. Click here for my archive on Richard.

    The Deep State is running PRM! (probably with the help of the Obama shadow government, including Richard, in DC).

    One of Trump’s great failings is that he has put no one loyal to him in a leadership role in PRM, so they are outmaneuvering him on refugees!

    Sure, why not? Let's just use the U.S. as our dumping ground. Their stupid liberals will welcome them with open arms.

    We have to tell Australia as citizens of the US, if they don't withdraw their request to dump these people in our country, then we won't buy any more goods, products or services from Australia or Australians. How about that? We can do that, you know. It's time the world saw first-hand the power of 250 million pissed-off Americans. SHOW THEM!!

    Hire American. Buy American.
