Just as there is not one Middle East country that will create a Palestinian state for the Palestinians, no Muslim country willing to greet them with open arms and a pot of gold, Australia has for years been trying to pawn off their illegals housed in concentration camps on the island of Papua New Guinea – and surprise – no one wants them! Including Australia.
No one seems deterred by this hypocritical revelation, despite the fact that Australia is governed by a very Liberal government who simply don’t want the riff-raff responsibility.
Australia boasts that its net migration is roughly 178,000. But the editing doesn’t reveal that the vast majority are highly skilled workers. Even for skilled migrants the rules are stiff with an age cap of 50. While Australia claims to have available upwards of 16,000 visa’s for refugees, their actual acceptance rate is about 6000 per year. Strict health and character assessments are in place to determine whether a person is eligible.
Still, despite these minimal queues, despite the concentration camps where refugees have been languishing for years, Australia has the audacity to promote an ad wherein Trump is slammed and ridiculed for his Build The Wall policy. The ad was sponsored by a libertarian group based in the US with Chapters throughout the world, wearechange.org, and headed by Luke Rudkowski.
Libertarians believe that the way to curb immigration is through our welfare system, as in stop offering illegals benefits and they’ll stop coming here. While it is true that illegals follow the money like everyone else, look at Socialist Germany and Sweden, walls do work, and history is a lesson. But I agree that working in conjunction is a necessary deterrent and the overall savings will be extensive.
The numbers are mixed. Despite Ron Paul claiming the Bush fence/wall in Texas was worthless, Federal data suggests it curbed illegal crossing by as much as 89% over the five year period during which it was built. In addition, the Director for Research at the Center for Immigration Studies, has concluded that the savings isn’t a simple immediate welfare cost scenario, but includes the cost of illegal children obtaining US status and rights therein, including healthcare, food stamps and education.
Ron Paul proposes eliminating Federal Welfare entirely. While that may sound like a plan on the surface, in reality it would never pass Congress and is therefore a useless solution.
Even Liberal Germany built a wall in Munich which surrounds a migrant encampment and was commissioned by locals to ‘protect’ those in the outlying neighborhood.
Why are walls so vilified? They have been a part of our global structure since the beginning of time.
Deterrents claim there is a psychological price and a humanitarian duty to take care of everyone. But what if instead of simply allowing unlimited immigration, contries pooled their funds and resources to make the corrupted, crime riddled countries safe? Oh, that’s right, we already do – it’s called the UN.
“The duties of United Nations are numerous like providing cooperation in international law, international security, development of economy, social progress, human rights, and peace in the world”
How’s that working for ya? Obviously, it’s not. In fact, it has failed miserably on every front despite a transparent budgetof … oh, that’s right, it’s not transparent, nor does any country have the right to designate what their funds should be spent on, this is determined by the General Assembly. All 193 members of the General Assembly have an equally weighted vote, without consideration of their funding.
According to the UN, El Salvador is clearly on its way in its sustainable development program which is characterized by its comprehensive and inclusive program. The UN continues to implement and follow-up on El Salvador’s goals in its development program…
Honduras too has a UN Development Program in place which is monitored and guided by UN officials in collaboration with the government to increase food security, drinking water, education, modernization and development…
“Mexico has taken the decision to participate in U.N. peacekeeping missions, taking part in humanitarian tasks that benefit civil society”.
Given these are the three main countries that contribute to the illegal immigration to the US, it would appear that the UN missions are not reflective of the mass exodus. The UN has stated that illegal immigrants from these countries should be designated as ‘refugees’, instead of illegal immigrants thus giving them protective status. Gangs have taken over many of these countries, they have become the ruling drug lords, the mafia, and the over-lords. The situation in these countries is worse than ever – despite UN peacekeeping, UN humanitarian efforts, UN aid, UN, social progress, UN security and UN law.
Perhaps the most controversial aspect of the UN is that they provide aid in the form of food – but it is delivered to the hands of the corrupt government to distribute, the same corrupt government that caused the crisis in the first place.
Even more topsy-turvy, El Salvador ‘sends peacekeepers’ to other countries, despite their internal chaos. So while El Salvador is rated a refugee state by the UN, they send El Salvador peacekeepers to help in Mali and Haiti. The logic is – well – illogical.
Building a wall, we only follow the security measures imposed by over 65 countries across the globe. Is it a psychological ploy to compare a Mexican border wall with the Berlin Wall, as though no other walls have existed. The Berlin Wall was done to encamp people and deny them freedom. There was no intent of ‘protection’, it was a jail. End of comparison.
Humanitarian? It means that immigrants will follow the rules of law and request permission to immigrate – just as they are required to do in most countries – especially in one of the strictest – Australia. End of humanitarian guilt.
