    US To Resettle Australia's Refugees Languishing On Islands

    US To Resettle Australia’s Refugees Languishing On Islands


    By Rod McGuirk, Associated Press


    Sat, Nov 12, 2016 (6:12 p.m.)


    CANBERRA, Australia — The United States has agreed to resettle an unspecified number of refugees languishing in Pacific island camps in a deal that is expected to inspire more asylum seekers to attempt to reach Australia by boat, officials said on Sunday.


    Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull would not say whether he had discussed the deal with President-elect Donald Trump during their telephone conversation on Thursday. The Obama administration had agreed to resettle refugees among almost 1,300 asylum seekers held at Australia's expense on the island nations of Nauru and Papua New Guinea.


    "We deal with one administration at a time and there is only one president of the United States at a time," Turnbull told reporters, adding that the deal was reached "some time ago."


    Trump has called for a moratorium or tight restrictions on Muslim immigration. Most of the asylum seekers are Muslims from the Middle East, Africa and Asia.


    Australia refuses to resettle any refugee who has arrived by boat since the date the tough policy was announced on July 19, 2013.


    Australia pays Nauru and Papua New Guinea to house boat arrivals and has been searching for countries that will resettle them.


    Few refugees have accepted offers to resettle in Papua New Guinea and Cambodia because most hope that Australia will eventually take them in.


    Turnbull said the United States had only agreed to resettle refugees already on Nauru and Papua New Guinea. Refugees who arrive in the future would not be sent to the United States.


    "We anticipate that people smugglers will seek to use this agreement as a marketing opportunity to tempt vulnerable people onto these perilous sea journeys," Turnbull said.


    "We have put in place the largest and most capable maritime surveillance and response fleet Australia has ever deployed," he added.


    Australian Border Force Commissioner Roman Quaedvlieg said ships had been positioned to turn boats back to Indonesia if asylum seekers attempt to reach Australia in the hope of being sent to the U.S.


    No people smuggling operation has successfully delivered asylum seekers to Australia by boat since July 2014, but 29 boats have been turned back to Indonesia by the Australian navy.


    Turnbull announced at Obama's Leaders' Summit on Refugees in September that Australia would participate in the U.S.-led program to resettle Central American refugees from a camp in Costa Rica. Australia would also increase its refugee intake by 5,000 to 18,750 a year.


    Turnbull said at the time that the agreement to resettle Hondurans and El Salvadoreans was "not linked to any other resettlement discussions" involving Australia's refugees getting to the U.S.

    Australia, the United States has 94 million working age people out of the work force because we don't have enough jobs. We have 75 million people on Medicaid which means they have nothing in order to qualify. We have 44 million on food stamps. We have 30 million illegal aliens already in our country that we have to remove according to our law. 62% of Americans have less than $1000 in their savings accounts and 21% don't even have a savings account. We have over 70,000 closed manufacturing plants since NAFTA.

    We hope our friends in Australia are doing well, but we're not. We're in deep serious trouble. Trump is busy fixing our country. It's a crisis, an emergency, a travesty unfolding so fast that if it's not turned around immediately, we could sink.

    So I'm sorry your little continent got some boat people from somewhere. You should give them a ride back to wherever they came from. They are not refugees that you have, they are illegal aliens. But whatever they are and whatever you want to call them, they are not the responsibility of the United States.

    To dare to raise in your first conversation with the President of the United States, whom you know if you are not brain-dead wants a stop to refugees, a stop to asylum seekers, a stop to illegal immigration and a big fat pause on most legal immigration, your little problem with your boat people proves beyond any doubt that you are far too stupid to talk with. I tell you this so you know why your big phone call with President Trump was cut short, and rightly so.

    I mean what an idiot, to raise their boat people with .... TRUMP??!!

    Oh my God, that's just the funniest thing I've ever heard!!

    LOL!!!!

    ----------------------------------

    They do not get to pick and choose! Economic, breeding parasites who want to relocate to the land of the Gravy Train.

    No need for them to "languish" on an Island...Australia does NOT want them...neither do US taxpayers!

    Load them up and deport them BACK to their homeland.

    We have 30 MILLION illegal aliens and Visa overstays to deport.

    Do not send them to us.
    ILLEGAL ALIENS HAVE "BROKEN" OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM

    DO NOT REWARD THEM - DEPORT THEM ALL

    A lot of people taking advantage of us.

    Could be 1,200, 2,000, could be more.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    3 million refugees have been resettled in the U.S. since Congress passed the Refugee Act of 1980, which created the Federal Refugee Resettlement Program.
