South Korea greets Muslim refugees with protests

Protests to migrants and refugees have been seen in the United States, Europe, and Australia as the number of people claiming to be displaced by war in Syria and other Middle East nations. Now South Korea is the latest to be added to the list with an organized anti-migrant movement.

Over 500 Yemeni refugees arrived in South Korea the first half of 2018, up tenfold from all of 2017. The result is many protests throughout South Korea and an online petition with over 700,000 signers requesting President Moon Jae-in do something to stop it.

South Koreans begin protesting as they don’t want Muslim refugees in their country

https://voiceofeurope.com/2018/09/south-koreans-begin-protesting-as-they-dont-want-muslim-refugees-in-their-country/Refugees who expected to be welcomed with open arms, were in for a rude awakening. The arrival of hundreds of Yemenis has fostered a wave of opposition giving birth to what is considered South Korea’s first organised anti-migrant movement.

“Let’s kick out fake refugees!” shouts heard during a 30 June rally on the island which is part of the anti-immigration sentiment overtaking the country.

There were protests in Jeju and elsewhere, including Seoul, during the summer.

My Take

This is one of the most challenging issues nations have to face in the modern world. On one hand, there must be compassion for those who are truly embattled and looking for safety in lands with greater opportunity. On the other hand, there are negative forces invariably mixed in with the deserving refugees who put their host nations and their people at risk.

What is a nation to do?

The first priority of every sovereign country must be the protection of their own people. Those nations with the means should work together to establish safe places for refugees even if it’s not necessarily in their own lands.

The Middle East has plenty of room for refugees, but a large effort must be made to establish accommodations and aid for those moved. Refugee camps are not enough, but opening borders is an equally bad idea. If the resources could be combined and channeled towards creating safe places of opportunity for the displaced, it’s better for the refugees as well as the nations who would potentially host them.

Border patrol saves 7 illegal immigrants, including 3 children, from drowning in the Rio Grande

Border patrol saves 7 illegal immigrants including 3 children from drowning in the Rio Grande

Seven illegal immigrants from El Salvador were rescued by U.S. border patrol as they attempted to cross the Rio Grande River on Tuesday. The four adults and three children were unable to stay afloat in the rapid waters and had to call out for help. Luckily for them, border patrol was nearby and saved all seven lives.

“The higher number of families attempting to illegally enter the United States exposes more vulnerable adults and children to the hazards and risks of crossing the Rio Grande River,” said Del Rio Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak. “If not for the quick response by our Border Patrol agents, this incident could have ended tragically with the loss of life of three small children and their parents.”
According to border patrol:

On March 19, while conducting maritime operations, the Del Rio Station Marine Unit rescued two families from El Salvador after they attempted to cross the Rio Grande River near the Del Rio Port of Entry. The two families, totaling seven individuals, including three children ages three, four, and 10, were struggling to stay afloat in the swift current. The agents heard them call out for help because they could no longer hold their children while trying to stay above water. The agents immediately recognized their distress and navigated their service vessel toward the individuals, deployed a rescue rope, and safely pulled the individuals aboard the vessel.

All seven individuals were determined to be nationals of El Salvador. All were in good health and were transported to the Del Rio Border Patrol Station for processing in accordance with CBP guidelines.

My Take

We are often told stories by the media about the dangerous conditions from which the masses of people from Central America are fleeing. While the President and other Republicans, as well as border patrol itself, tries to tell people the dangers these people face on their journeys, leftist media continues to downplay it. It becomes especially dangerous for those who choose to enter illegally instead of using a much safer port of entry, as Tuesday’s near-tragedy demonstrates.

The bravery of border patrol agents doing their thankless jobs while getting constant criticism from the left and little support at all from Washington DC is worth commendation.

Mainstream media loves to pounce any times harm comes to illegal immigrants in border patrol custody. When they save lives, as they did yesterday, it’s radio-silence from the press. Why? It’s just another example of why we need to build the wall now.

Snopes downgrades truth about Beto’s arrests to ‘mostly true’ because a meme got his band’s name wrong

Snopes downgrades truth about Betos arrests to mostly true because a meme got his bands name wrong

Fact checkers are all the rage in the age of fake news. Unfortunately, all of the major fact checkers are left leaning at best, downright progressive at worst. That’s why I make it part of my daily routine to check the checkers to see what they spun today. This latest installment is minor in the whole scheme of things, but it highlights the intense need to protect Democrats whenever possible.

Snopes took on the task of fact checking the following statement:

Beto O’Rourke was in a band called the El Paso Pussycats and was arrested at least twice in the 1990s.

This is true. Beto was arrested twice, which makes him an ideal candidate for the party of lawlessness and disorder. But Snopes, in their certified fact checking wisdom, decided to pick the statement about the arrests that included the name of his band. The statement they chose had the wrong name for the band, using their album name instead. This was enough for them to downgrade the statement from “True” to “Mostly True.”

Not a big deal, right? Actually, it’s bigger than one might think. When people search for Beto and look only for things that are true about him, they will not be shown information about his arrests. The site could have picked literally any other claim about the arrests to fact-check, but had to dig deep to find an internet meme from his failed Senatorial bid last year in order to find one with a statement that included something incorrect in it.

Beto ORourke Arrest

You’ll notice they made sure to mention that both charges were dismissed. The circumstances behind the dismissals seemed to do nothing to negate the crimes he actually committed.

This is just another example of the “fact-checker” running cover for a Democrat they like. The meat of the fact, Beto’s arrests, won’t be found on this site as “True” because they were selective in how they wanted to frame this narrative.

61% of New Yorkers say no to driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants

61 of New Yorkers say no to driver's licenses for illegal immigrants

A good majority of New Yorkers oppose giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants despite being a state known for light treatment of those who come or stay in America illegally, according to a new poll by Sienna College.

My Take

It’s insane that this is a thing. I understand the need to take care of people even though they broke our laws, ignored our sovereignty, and desire to subvert our nation’s culture by forcing their own upon all of us, but letting them drive around legally when they’re not legally supposed to be here is ridiculous.

At some point, Americans are going to wake up and realize the laws that have made us so free and safe as a people have been changed to accommodate the rest of the world. When that happens, we will not longer be America.
