Immigration Asylum Claims Have Skyrocketed by 1,744% Since 2009

Published

on

The utilization of asylum rights by otherwise illegal immigrants threatens to fundamentally erase the distinction between legal and illegal immigration and create a viable pathway for nearly anyone from an impoverished or troubled country to secure legal residence in the United States.

Data from U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services has revealed how asylum claims have increased exponentially since 2009- by the order of a massive 1,744%. Claiming asylum usually involves claiming a fear of persecution in one’s home country, providing a legal means to establish American residency.

A spokeswoman with the federal agency recently spoke to Conservative Review about the exponentially growing abuse of the American asylum system by migrants, many of whom have recently come from Central American countries like Nicaragua and Honduras.

The extremely low bar for establishing credible fear is ripe for fraud and abuse. This is because once an individual overcomes this low threshold, the vast majority are then referred to an immigration judge and most are released on a promise to appear for a court date weeks, months, or years down the line, regardless of whether they plan to show up. In other words, a credible fear referral doesn’t equal asylum status, but it does earn a free ticket into the U.S., allowing individuals to disappear into the interior to live and work illegally.”

The signifigance of the flawed asylum laws in creating the issue is hard to understate, as USCIS figures estimate there are more than 230,000 open asylum court cases, six times as many as there were in 2009.

Did political conditions in countries such as Nicaragua and Honduras worsen to the point where six times as many people have a need to flee genuine persecution there? Or did migrants discover an effective, albeit costly and less-than-honest, means to legally migrate to the United States through the back door?

The use of asylum claims is a major component of the recent surge of illegal immigration to the United States, most famously exhibited in the large ‘caravans.’ Illegal border crossings now threaten to surpass the records set under George W. Bush’s presidency, despite inaccurate claims (usually using data that ends in 2014) from mainstream media that border crossings are down.

Coronavirus Stimulus Contains Whopping $350 Million Refugee Resettlement Boondoggle

This has nothing to do with the virus, or the economy.

Published

It appears that a $350 million dollar appropriation for purposes of “Migration and Refugee Assistance” managed to slip inside the coronavirus stimulus package.

Populist commentator Ryan Girdusky first reported on the hidden boondoggle as the legislation was being prepared for a Senate vote Wednesday night. It’s one of several unrelated pork planks in the massive $2 trillion stimulus that was able to slip in without the scrutiny of Republican senators.

The proposal to enrich refugee resettlement contractors appears to have migrated into the legislation originally introduced by Mitch McConnell from Nancy Pelosi’s rivaling proposal. The Speaker of the House had temporarily derailed the stimulus package by introducing a plan of her own, but from the looks of it, she’s getting a crucial element of the left-wing social agenda Democrats have tried to tie to the stimulus with the refugee resettlement package.

Florida’s Matt Gaetz appears to be one of the few members of Congress to question the totally unrelated refugee giveaway in the moment of legislative urgency.

Nominal charitable and non-profit entities have gamed and rigged the American refugee resettlement process for years, enriching themselves to the tunes of tens of millions of dollars if not more on the taxpayer dime. Migration skeptics have long questioned the utility of such an arrangement, pointing out that spending hundreds millions of dollars to resettle people in the United States could be used to far greater effect in providing relief for displaced peoples closer to their homes countries.

Existing refugee resettlement programs have continued in spite of the raging coronavirus pandemic. More than 3,000 people have been resettled in the United States since January, when the disease began surfacing on the radar of the federal government.

The Washington D.C. Swamp appears to have succeeded in utilizing one of its oldest cards in this instance, attaching a totally unrelated refugee proposal to a sorely needed economic relief package. It’s likely the proposal would have shot down on other circumstances, but congressional Democrats ultimately proved tactful enough to advance their preferred and entirely unrelated special interest in a moment of great legislative urgency.
