Guatemalan security forces block Honduran migrant caravan heading to US
Quote
Guatemalan security forces blocked hundreds of migrants advancing towards the US on Monday. The government said the road in eastern Guatemala reopened to traffic on Monday after troops and police officers launched teargas and pushed them back down the highway.
Quote
The removal of the group was the latest effort by Guatemalan authorities to break up the caravan, which authorities said numbered close to 8,000 people within hours of its departure for the US last week.

Had Native Americans stopped Western colonialists from colonizing the Americas none of this would be happening and we probably wouldn't have nuclear weapons on the planet and an ocean filled with plastic either.

Refugees stuck in winter shelters at EU border in Bosnia | DW News
Quote
European lawmakers are set to discuss the fate of migrants stranded along the EU's external borders. The situation is especially acute in Bosnia, where thousands of mostly Middle Eastern migrants remain in limbo. Bosnia is not an EU member, but it borders Croatia, which is part of the union. Human rights groups say migrants have frequently reported rough encounters with Croatian police, including beatings and being forcefully sent back into Bosnia. Croatian authorities deny the allegations. Currently nearly 9,000 migrants are estimated to be in Bosnia. Many are from Afghanistan, Pakistan or Syria. The UN's migration agency says more than a third are living without any shelter. Many were left homeless when a camp in Lipa was evacuated in December, after Bosnian authorities failed to prepare the camp for winter. The empty camp was later set on fire. The Bosnian army has set up new tents, but NGOs say more permanent shelter is sorely needed.

Common sense returns to the US government:

https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/democrats-legislation-decriminalize-immigration-233300380.html

Quote
On Tuesday, Rep. Jesús “Chuy” García (D-Ill.) and co-sponsors Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) held a virtual press conference discussing their New Way Forward Act — originally introduced in 2019, alongside Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.). It would ban for-profit immigration detention facilities, end the use of local police for immigration enforcement and decriminalize border crossings.
...
“Decriminalizing immigration is not a radical concept at all,” García said. “What is radical is caging school-aged children. What is radical is detaining thousands of refugees in dangerous conditions of squalor. We’re simply asking for fair treatment.”
...
Pressley hopes the legislation will end the “prison-to-deportation” pipeline, in which immigrants of color, who are stopped and arrested more often by police and given harsher sentences than their white peers, can end up in ICE detention and at times deported back to their home countries.

“For too long our immigration and criminal legal systems have been deeply and fundamentally intertwined,” Pressley said, adding that this bill package aims to create an immigration system that “finally centers the humanity of our immigrant neighbors.”

There must be accountability for all who have initiated violence against refugees:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/syria-rights-group-urges-intl-142956093.html

Quote
BEIRUT (AP) — A Washington-based Syrian rights group filed a case with the International Criminal Court on Thursday, calling for an investigation into alleged crimes against humanity by Greece for its mistreatment of refugees.

The Syria Justice and Accountability Center said witness testimony and video evidence back its claims of mistreatment and abuse of refugees at Greece's borders and inside overcrowded camps. It cites instances of security guards using tear gas to disperse refugee protests, and shabby and unhealthy conditions at the sprawling camps.

Mohammad Al-Abdallah, the group's executive director, said this was the first legal challenge to the European Union over its treatment of refugees.
...
The mistreatment documented since March 2016, the Syrian group argues, extends to Greece’s territorial waters where it has documented sabotaging of migrant boats, leaving them to drift back to sea — even pushing them back into water.

Such “pushback" incidents are considered contrary to international refugee protection agreements, which say people shouldn’t be expelled or returned to a country where their life and safety may be in danger.

The Syria Justice and Accountability Center said there is evidence that personnel from Frontex, the agency that monitors and polices migrant movements around Europe’s borders, participated in or were complicit in these abuses, which it says could amount to crimes against humanity.

Frontex is already under fire after an October investigation by media outlets said evidence in video and other public data suggests its members were “actively involved in one pushback incident at the Greek-Turkish maritime border in the Aegean Sea.”

But let us not delude ourselves that mere accusation is enough:

Quote
“We are hoping this would also influence the policy and discourse on refugees within the EU, not only in Greece,” Al-Abdallah said. “No EU country wants an accusation of crimes against humanity."

Being accused of crimes against humanity is meaningless unless followed by punishment. The harsh truth is that no EU country is afraid of an accusation of crimes against humanity unless the accuser is willing to follow up the accusation with devastating military action.

What migrants face as they journey through the deadly Darien Gap
Quote
Whether fleeing war, persecution, poverty or the effects of climate change, migrants and refugees worldwide routinely find themselves in great danger. Perhaps the most hazardous migrant trail of all is the Darien Gap, a wild, lawless stretch straddling Colombia and Panama. Before the pandemic, special correspondent Nadja Drost and videographer Bruno Federico reported from this perilous path.

Updated: President Joe Biden's administration announced Thursday that it will start allowing thousands of migrants to enter the U.S. while their asylum claims are being processed. The asylum seekers were previously forced to remain in Mexico under the Trump administration’s Migrant Protection Protocols. Many migrants affected by that Trump policy have struggled to find permanent shelter or safety in Mexico while waiting months, or more than a year, for their days in court. The Biden admin says it will start slow, processing approx 300 individuals daily, but it's estimated the total number of people affected by this policy change could be 25,000. In a statement, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said that 'the U.S. government is committed to rebuilding a safe, orderly, and humane immigration system,' but the agency added that this news 'should not be interpreted as an opening for people to migrate irregularly to the United States.'

U.S. Border Patrol is now allowing asylum seekers to begin crossing into the country to have their requests processed, a reversal of Trump administration policy. But there are concerns as more migrant children are crossing alone. CBS News correspondent Mireya Villarreal has the latest from the border, and CBS News immigration reporter Camilo Montoya-Galvez joins CBSN AM to discuss how the Biden administration is handling the influx.

Good work!

https://www.yahoo.com/news/eight-10-flights-deport-illegal-190245107.html

Quote
Eight in 10 flights to deport hundreds of illegal migrants and foreign criminals from the UK have been disrupted or blocked by human rights challenges, internal Home Office figures reveal.
...
The figures, revealed under freedom of information laws, will reignite Government criticism of "lefty lawyers" exploiting human rights laws to block the deportation of illegal migrants and criminals.
...
The data shows that the Home Office was forced to remove migrants from or abandon 26 flights out of 32 in the nine months from April to December last year.

Only 18 migrants were taken off deportation flights up until August, but the number increased to 333 from August, out of a total of 495 earmarked for deportation or removal – giving the ratio of two to one who managed to delay their departure after legal challenges.

Not good enough, though. Any number of deportations above zero is unacceptable. Every deportation is an initiated violence. Every initiated violence must be opposed with retaliatory violence.

GOP Blasts Biden on Immigration Amid Migrant Influx at U.S-Mexico Border
Quote
President Joe Biden’s plan for a broad immigration overhaul, including a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S., doesn’t have enough support to pass Congress anytime soon, the Senate’s second-ranking Democrat said.

“I don’t see any means of reaching that,” Illinois Senator Dick Durbin said of a comprehensive approach.

House Democrats have already opted for a piecemeal approach and plan to vote this week on two narrower measures for agricultural workers and young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children. Durbin, who chairs the Judiciary Committee that would consider those bills, said he wants to see if there is support to move them through the Senate.

“I think Speaker Pelosi has discovered she doesn’t have the support for a comprehensive bill in the House,” Durbin said. “And I think that indicates where it is in the Senate as well.”

Biden has proposed a plan that would provide a pathway to citizenship for roughly 11 million people living illegally in the U.S., would bolster assistance to Central American countries and would ease immigration for people fleeing violence. Republicans declared the proposal, which did not include any added resources to secure the border, dead on arrival.

A surge of migrants at the border is highlighting the practical and political challenges of immigration reform, which could complicate Democrats’ efforts, Durbin said.

Last week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported that 100,441 people tried to cross the border illegally in February, the first full month of the Biden administration, a 28% increase over January. More than 9,500 unaccompanied children came to the border in February, a 62% jump above January.

During a Monday visit to a detention center in El Paso, Texas, House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy said Biden’s stance on immigration is luring more people from Central America. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, a senior Republican on the Judiciary Committee that Durbin chairs, is also among those calling for the border situation to be addressed.

The two bills the House is set to vote on this week would provide a pathway to citizenship for young immigrants eligible for the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and would allow farm workers who don’t have legal status to obtain a green card.

Durbin said he wants to push those House-passed bills through the Senate Judiciary Committee and then onto the Senate floor.

But Graham said the effort to get immigration legislation through the Judiciary Committee is made far more complicated by the influx of migrants at the border.

“I think it’s going to be really difficult with what’s going on at the border,” he said.

Our enemies correctly recognize that fascism is leftist:

https://gatesofvienna.net/2021/04/fighting-fascism-through-mass-immigration/

Quote
The Sea-Watch 4 is currently in the port of Burriana in Spain to get the migrant ferry ready for the next search-and-collection mission. Two shots show the (anti) fascist flag on the bow of the migrant cutter; apparently members of the crew belong to the fascist movement, or the NGO — and probably not only this — belongs to the field of left-wing extremists, and now reveal whose brainchild the “philanthropists” truly are.

Unfortunately the antifa still do not understand this yet. Still, well done to them for continuing to do the practical rescue work!
