The Obama administration has apparently decided that the United Nations is qualified to decide who deserves to come to America under refugee status.
Investor’s Business Daily reports:
Should The UN Be Picking The Next Americans?
Immigration: The Obama administration has outsourced to the United Nations the selection of Central Americans who will be reclassified as refugees to this country. How many more ways can we lose control of our border?
As surreal as it sounds, the Obama administration really has employed the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to select and ship thousands of newly minted Central American “refugees” from its newly set up processing centers. These are the same people who, up until now, have been known as economic migrants.
Media reports have noted that it’s the administration’s attempt to staunch the latest border surge by offering refugee status as alternative to illegal migration. Thwarted on his amnesty initiatives, President Obama’s latest effort to import Central Americans simply involves changing their status from immigrant to refugee — with the aid of the UN.
As a result, as many as 80,000 would-be illegals from Central America may come in the next two years with legal status, skipping the hassle of legal or even illegal immigration and going to the very front of the line.
Don’t we pay taxes to support American agencies to handle this sort of thing?
November can’t come soon enough.
