UN pushes for migrants to be called refugees



Published: Tue, July 8, 2014 @ 2:56 p.m.

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) - United Nations officials are pushing for many of the Central Americans fleeing to the U.S. to be treated as refugees displaced by armed conflict, a designation meant to increase pressure on the United States and Mexico to accept tens of thousands of people currently ineligible for asylum. Officials with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees say they hope to see movement toward a regional agreement on that status Thursday when migration and interior department representatives from the U.S., Mexico, and Central America meet in Nicaragua. The group will discuss updating a 30-year-old declaration regarding the obligations that nations have to aid refugees.

yet another reason, to add to the hundreds already available, to get the U.S. out of the U.N. and the U.N. out of the U.S. Begin be throwing any and all of these pompous jerks out of the country. For an organization that has been so consistently wrong on so many matters for so many yeas, a bit of humility might be in order. We are not obligated to respect these UN-istas nor should we do so.
And all, repeat, ALL of these illegal alien invaders should be out of the country by midnight tonight at the expense of the nations of origin. And those same nations of origin ought to be bearing the entire cost of this ghastly mess, US taxpayers should not be paying for the "privilege" of this invasion. Complicity in this invasion and lending aid & comfort to the invaders is proof positive of Treason, and should be punished accordingly.

That's fine. Then UN should set up refugee camps in Mexico and Central & South America.

All of them coming to the USA are ILLEGAL ALIENS.
