BORDER ARRESTS JUMP 52 PERCENT IN AUGUST

By 
 - 

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Border Patrol arrested nearly 10,000 unaccompanied immigrant children and families caught illegally crossing the border with Mexico in August, a 52 percent jump from August 2014, according to statistics published by the agency Monday afternoon.


Since the start of the fiscal year in October, border agents have arrested more than 35,000 children traveling alone and more than 34,500 people traveling as families, mostly mothers and children. The total number of arrests for the year is down nearly 50 percent compared with a year ago, but border agents have reported a jump in arrests since July.

The Border Patrol reported arresting 6,424 unaccompanied immigrant children and families in August 2014, compared to 9,790 this year.

The August increase comes a year after a surge of more than 68,000 unaccompanied children at the U.S.-Mexico border. Many were trying to escape violence in Honduras, El Salvador or Guatemala. For much of the year, the number of illegal border crossings by families and children has been far lower than last year, before increasing in July and August.

It's unclear exactly what has led to the overall decrease in border arrests of families and children, but Mexico has stepped up enforcement along its southern border.

White House spokesman  said the August numbers were a "surprising uptick" and a "concern" for the administration. Earnest did not provide a reason for the increase, but noted that it's at odds with the typical decline in border crossings in August.

Adam Isacson, a border expert and senior analyst at the Washington Office on Latin America, said the 4,632 unaccompanied children caught at the border last month is the highest number his agency has recorded for the month of August since their records began in 2009.

Isacson said historically, crossings start to slow after springtime highs. But July saw an uptick, and now the number of unaccompanied children crossing in August has begun to rival numbers from the beginning and the end of last year's surge.

Isacson said that this could indicate the beginning of another surge, noting that the number of people caught traveling as families also ticked upward last month.

"It could be a flash in the pan," he said, "But we are going up the trend line."

The administration was caught off guard by the sudden surge of children and families in 2014 and made several efforts to curb the flow of people crossing the border illegally, including media campaigns to discourage people from making the dangerous trip across Mexico. The administration also opened family detention centers that could house thousands of people while they awaited deportation hearings. The detention centers were established in part because about 70 percent of families released at the border and ordered to report back to immigration authorities failed to return to face deportation hearings.

A federal judge in California ruled last month that the Homeland Security Department's detention of families violated a longstanding legal agreement requiring that immigrant children not be held in secure facilities that aren't licensed to care for children.

The government filed an appeal in that case on Friday and Homeland Security Secretary  said the detention centers were being converted into processing centers for interviews and screenings.


Earnest said the U.S. will continue to warn people considering crossing the border or helping their children do so about the dangers associated with the trip.

Comment:

I want to clear something up.  A federal judge says DHS can't detain children in a facility not design to care for them.  In my opinion although all children are minors, not all minors are children.  For example, when it comes to what the judge was referring to, a 16 year old is as much a child as I am.  Sixteen year olds can feed and dress themselves.  They can use the rest room themselves. They can do their own laundry, clean up after themselves, etc.  

I don't feel we owe them an education until it is determined whether they can stay or not.  We shouldn't have to spend money educating them for as long as six months only to have them deported.



To me, "children" refers to pre-teens.  Except MAYBE for education, when it comes to detention, a teenager needs no more special care than a 25 year old.

Also, if facilities that are designed to care for children don't have enough room for the parents, then they'll have to be separated.  If the parents don't like it, well, they should have thought of that before they decided to invade our borders.  They made their beds, now they'll have to lie on them.

Rasmussen: Half of Americans Against Muslim President

By Bill Hoffmann   |   Thursday, 24 Sep 2015 12:23 PM

Dr. Ben Carson has been criticized for saying he would oppose a Muslim running for president — but a new poll reveals that more than half of all U.S. voters agree.

The telephone survey by Rasmussen Reports found that 51 percent of likely U.S. voters would not personally be willing to vote for a Muslim president.

Only 28 percent say they would support a Muslim in the White House and 20 percent are undecided.

Fifty-two percent say most of their family, friends and co-workers also would not be willing to vote for a Muslim president, with only 15 percent saying they would, and 32 percent not sure. 



By comparison, 78 percent said they could vote for a black president after Barack Obama won enough delegates to be the Democratic nominee in 2008. 

According to the poll, Republicans are more than twice as likely as Democrats — 73 percent to 35 percent — to say they would not personally vote for a Muslim to be U.S. president.

And a plurality — 48 percent — of voters not affiliated with either major party agrees. 

"The large number of undecideds suggests that many voters are unwilling to reveal their opinion on what is seen as a controversial topic," Rasmussen said.

In addition, those under 40 are more supportive of a Muslim president than their elders are, but even younger voters don't have much confidence in their family, friends and relatives to agree, Rasmussen said.

As well, whites are much less likely to say they would vote for a Muslim president than are blacks and other minority voters.

Fifty-seven percent of whites say their family, friends and relatives would not vote to put a Muslim in the White House, but just 40 percent of blacks and 41 percent of other minority voters agree.

Last Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," Carson said: "I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that. If [a president's faith is] inconsistent with the values and principles of America, then of course it should matter."

But while he's been under fire from Islamic groups, Democrats, and some key Republicans, the fallout has actually helped his campaign.

On Wednesday, Armstrong Williams, the retired neurosurgeon's campaign adviser, told Newsmax TV that Carson's campaign coffers are seeing an increase in donations following his statement.

"The response is overwhelming," Williams said to Dennis Michael Lynch, guest host of "The Steve Malzberg Show."

The Rasmussen poll also found 71 percent of Americans think political correctness is a problem in America today. As well, 73 percent think Americans have to be careful not to say something politically incorrect to avoid getting in trouble. 

And in questions posed by Rasmussen about press coverage of politicians: 

Seventy-five percent of voters believe when it comes to covering prospective presidential candidates, the media is more interested in creating controversies about them than it is in reporting where they stand on the issues. 



And 76 percent of Republicans — and 71 percent of all voters — think most reporters, when covering a political campaign, try to help the candidate they want to win.

The survey of 1,000 was conducted on Sept. 22 to 23, 2015 by Rasmussen Reports and has a margin of sampling error of +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.

Comment:

Personally, I don't think it could happen for quite some time.  If this country continues down the same path to oblivion then it will eventually, but not as long as Muslims are still "the bad guys".



It kind of like the son of Russian immigrants running for president during the Cold War years.  He wouldn't have stood a snowball's chance hell of winning.  But nowadays, maybe such a person could win the presidency.  After all, Russia may not exactly be our friend and ally, but they are not "the bad guys" anymore.

Also, there are plenty of Muslims who are muslims and not MUSLIMS, just like there are people who are christians and not CHRISTIANS.  There are many Muslims, like Christians who rarely go to services, and rarely "live" their faith except on religious holidays.  How many Christian do you know who never go to church except on days like Christmas and Easter?  The Muslim religion has its share of those people too.

Reminder:  The date of the Southwest Regional meeting has been decided.  It will be Saturday, Nov. 7 at 12:00 PM, somewhere in San Bernardino County.   Exact details and location will be given by email to those members and official supporters in good standing who are interested in attending.  We already have several people coming.  The more the merrier.  advisoryboard@americannaziparty.com

Migrant crisis: Opponents furious over new EU quotas

BBC, 22 September 2015
Central European countries have reacted angrily after plans to relocate 120,000 migrants across the continent were approved by EU interior ministers.


Under the scheme, migrants will be moved from Italy, Greece and Hungary to other EU countries.

But Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary voted against accepting mandatory quotas.
Czech President Milos Zeman said: "Only the future will show what a mistake this was."
The BBC's Europe correspondent Chris Morris says it is highly unusual for an issue like this - which involves national sovereignty - to be decided by majority vote rather than a unanimous decision.
The scheme to take in migrants appears on the surface to be voluntary, he says, although countries are likely to be given little choice in the matter.
In the latest reaction:
  • Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico says he will not accept the new terms and will not "respect this diktat of the majority"
  • Czech Interior Minister Milan Chovanec has tweeted: "Very soon we will realise the emperor has no clothes. Today was a defeat for common sense"
  • Radio Prague reports that the Czech Republic could seek to take the matter to the European Court of Justice
  • In Latvia, whose interior minister backed the move, hundreds of people have marched against the quotas
  • Hungary will respect Tuesday's decision, a government spokesman says
Under the EU's rules, a country that does not agree with a policy on migration imposed upon it could have the right to appeal to the European Council.
But Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn, who chaired the meeting, said he had "no doubt" opposing countries would implement the measures.



Finland abstained from the vote. Poland, which had originally opposed the proposal, voted for it.
"We felt that it was much better to negotiate, to negotiate all these conditions, which for us are important," Poland's Europe minister, Rafal Trzaskowski, told the BBC.
"We preferred to be an active member of this debate."
The scheme must now be ratified by EU leaders in Brussels on Wednesday.

Who are the 120,000?

  • All are migrants "in clear need of international protection" to be resettled from Italy, Greece and Hungary to other EU member states - Hungary will also take its share
  • 15,600 from Italy, 50,400 from Greece, 54,000 from Hungary, though it is unclear how many are still in Hungary
  • Initial screening of asylum applicants carried out in Greece, Hungary and Italy
  • Syrians, Eritreans, Iraqis prioritised
  • Financial penalty of 0.002% of GDP for those member countries refusing to accept relocated migrants
  • Relocation to accepting countries depends on size of economy and population, average number of asylum applications
  • Transfer of individual applicants within two months


Under the plan, Hungary will have to take in a share of migrants. Had it not opposed the scheme, it would have been exempt.


    Hungary's anti-immigration Prime Minister Viktor Orban could present his own proposals before EU leaders on Wednesday.

    The UN refugee agency said the scheme would be insufficient, given the large numbers arriving in Europe.
    "A relocation programme alone, at this stage in the crisis, will not be enough to stabilise the situation," , UNHCR spokeswoman Melissa Fleming said.
    The number of those needing relocation will probably have to be revised upwards significantly, she said.
    The UN says close to 480,000 migrants have arrived in Europe by sea this year, and are now reaching European shores at a rate of nearly 6,000 a day.


    Comment:

    The Czech Republic, and Slovakia are remaining defiant and refusing to accept any more refugees.  The others are caving in due to threatened economic sanctions by the European Union.

    The bottom line is always $$$.

    This situation hasn't really effected the United States that much - yet.  But it's just a matter of time.  

    Also, although it's not in the news anymore, migrants from Central America are still arriving at our southern border daily - many are children unaccompanied by adults.  Their parents send them alone figuring the United States won't turn back children, which for the most part is essentially the case.

    It just keeps getting worse and worse.  However, as it does, more and more Americans are beginning to wake up.  Perhaps the proponents of the One World Government have acted to soon and too quickly.  They have been very arrogant in their success.  Arrogance has often been the downfall of the tyrant.

    Reminder:  Today is the last day for those interested in attending our Regional meeting to have a say in when it will be.  The date will be set on Tuesday.  You can still attend after today if you are interested, but the date will be set and will be firm. advisoryboard@americannaziparty.com

    For All My People...

    On the roof of a very tall building are four men; one is Asian, one is Mexican, one is Black, and the last one is White.

    The Asian walks to the ledge and says, "This is for all my people" and jumps off the roof.

    Next, the Mexican walks to the ledge and also says, "This is for all my people" and then he jumps off the roof.

    Next is the Black guy's turn. He walks to the ledge and says, "This is for all my people" and then throws the White guy off the roof.

    Reminder:  Our Southwest regional meeting is coming up soon.  I'm giving those who are interested until Monday to suggest an exact date.  After tomorrow the date will be set.  All other details will be given to all interested members and official supporters within a few days.  Several comrades have already stated they are coming.  How about you?

    Bloody violence breaks out between Syrian and Afghan migrants

    Bloody violence has broken out between Syrian and Afghan migrants this afternoon after they were seen fighting to board trains across Croatia.


    Rocks, smashed glass bottles and sticks were used as violence broke out at the Beli Manastir train station in the northeast of the country.


    A number of migrants were injured during the clashes while police officers used batons as they tried to break up the fight, which started at the ticket office.


    The chaotic scenes unfolded as Hungary continued to build a giant fence along the Croatian border - just days after sealing off access from Serbia with a 100 mile razor-wire barrier.

    Prime Minister Viktor Orban said a 'fast-solution' fence will be finished on a 26 mile stretch of the border - where the two countries are not divided by a river - by the end of today.


    Hundreds of Hungarian troops are being called in to help build the barrier just days after the country erected a huge fence along its border with Serbia.


    Tensions boiled over as huge groups of migrants waited to board trains at Beli Manastir in Croatia his afternoon. Police are pictured running for cover

    Migrants continued to stream in from Serbia in to Croatia this morning, walking through fields around one of seven road border crossings that Zagreb closed after an influx of more than 14,000 people in just two days. 


    Croatia's Prime Minister said today that border guards will redirect migrants to Hungary and Slovenia - an announcement the Hungarian government described as 'totally unacceptable' as a war of words erupted this afternoon.


    There have been reports that Croatia has already started transporting thousands of migrants and refugees to its northeastern frontier with Hungary, with at least two coachloads crossing the frontier.


    Flash point: Trouble is said to have started after a dispute at the ticket office sparking violent scenes at the train station

    Some 22 buses arrived at the border opposite the Hungarian village Beremend, each carrying around 60 people. There they were met by around 200 Hungarian police and 50 soldiers, who allowed two of the buses to cross the frontier, witnesses said.


    After crossing, the passengers disembarked and were transferred into Hungarian buses which set off for an unknown destination. 


    It comes as the UN refugee agency warned of a 'buildup' of migrants and refugees in Serbia as its neighbors tighten their borders to the influx. 


    Tensions boiled over among some migrants in the Croatian town of Beli Manastir, just over the border from Hungary, angry groups of Afghan and Syrian migrants, waiting for trains to Zagreb, fought with rocks and sticks at a ticket office. 


    Migrant numbers in Europe will build up in coming days and their flows may fragment further into new routes, the UN refugee agency said today

    Rocks, smashed bottles and broken sticks littered the ground while a handful of police in ordinary uniforms tried to restore control.


    At the Tovarnik railway station, around 3,000 migrants waited for buses and trains in the heat, women and children searching for shade under sparse trees.


    Announcing the construction of the a razor wire fence along part of the Croatian border, Orban said this morning: 'During the night work already began on building the technical border closure... It seems we can rely on help from no one.   


    'The western Balkans route is still there. The fact the Hungarian-Serbian border is now closed has not stopped the flow.'


    Adrian Edwards of UNHCR says 'the crisis is growing and being pushed from one country to another' as roughly 4,000 migrants and refugees pour into Greece each day and head north. 


    He says stricter border controls first by Hungary and more recently Croatia threaten a bottleneck in Serbia, 'which is not a country with a robust asylum system.'


    Hundreds of migrants walk up the side of a busy road near Edirne, Turkey, carrying huge bags of belongings as they walk towards towards the Greek border


    In Croatia, officials last night announced it had shut almost all road crossings from Serbia, saying it could not take in any more migrants.


    But the flow continued unabated this morning as migrants arrived by bus in the Serbian border town of Sid and walked through cornfields to cross the border, joining huge crowds controlled by Croatian police. 


    Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic said this morning that the country will redirect people toward Hungary and Slovenia and further toward Western Europe. 


    Milanovic said that Croatia's capacities are full and that the authorities no longer can register people in accordance with EU rules. He said the country will let them pass through and suggested it will transfer them to its borders, primarily the Hungarian border. 


    He said: 'What else can we do? You are welcome in Croatia and you can pass through Croatia. But, go on. Not because we don't like you but because this is not your final destination.'


    It comes as the European statistics agency said 213,200 people had applied for asylum in the European Union in the second quarter of 2015, with Germany receiving more than a third of the new arrivals.

    Eurostat says the number of people seeking refuge was 85 percent higher than a year earlier, and up 15 percent on the first three months of the year.


    Croatia has become the route of choice for those hoping to reach western Europe, but it has struggled to cope - and Ranko Ostojic, Croatia's interior minister, warned those still planning on making the trip that it was not the easy route to places like Germany and Sweden.


    'Don't come here anymore. Stay in refugee centers in Serbia and Macedonia and Greece,' Ostojic said yesterday. 'This is not the road to Europe. Buses can't take you there. It's a lie.'


    Meanwhile, German Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel has warned this morning that countries that do not share European values of 'human sympathy and solidarity' cannot count on receiving money from the bloc.


    Renewing a threat issued this week by his cabinet colleague, Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere, Gabriel said that while Germany was opening gymnasiums, barracks and homes to refugee families, other countries were 'laying barbed wire on their borders and closing the gates'.


    But this afternoon, a top EU official said that Balkan nations were not a 'parking lot' for migrants and pledged to fully defend their interests.

    Hungarian police detain migrants after they were caught crossing the Serbia-Hungary border in the region of Morahalom, across the Serbian border town of Horgos
    The Hungarians aren't kidding around.
    'You are not a parking lot for refugees, you are also victims of the situation and we won't leave you,' European Union Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn told the Macedonian parliament.

    'All the countries of the EU are targets of the refugee stream and have the task to protect the external borders,' he said.

    Hahn said the EU was 'fully committed to defend you (Macedonia), but also Serbia and other countries from the Western Balkans.' 

     
    Tens of thousands of migrants have been pouring into Balkan countries in a bid to cross into the EU's visa-free travel zone and go on to Germany, which has opened its doors to Syrian refugees.

    Roads leading to the Croatian border crossing were closed last night and only one, linking Belgrade and Zagreb, appeared to still be open.


    This morning, Slovenia suspended all rail traffic with Croatia until at least the evening and said that only those 'meeting EU requirements' would be allowed to enter the country, as it braced itself for the arrival of migrants from its neighbours.

    Tents and shelters were being prepared in several parts of Slovenia, a member of the European Union and, unlike Croatia, of the passport-free Schengen Zone. The small country of two million people also borders Austria and Italy as well as Hungary.

    Prime Minister Miro Cerar said late last night on state television that Slovenia would implement Schengen rules and that 'only those meeting the EU's requirements can be allowed to cross the border.'

    The government also called an emergency meeting of its National Security Council on Friday to discuss the next steps.

    The first larger group of some 150 migrants arrived on Thursday evening, crossing the Croatia-Slovenia border by train and were stopped just over the border in Dobova.

    Local police initially planned to send them back to Croatia but despite hours of talks Croatia refused to accept them.

    Slovenian authorities then moved the migrants to a centre in the west of the country 'while a procedure for their return to Croatia is agreed,' Slovenian police said.

    Overnight another 100 migrants were intercepted attempting to crossing the border near the main border crossing of Obrezje, police spokeswoman Alenka Drenik said.

    Having been blocked from crossing into Hungary, many migrants have headed west to make the crossing into Croatia, where they hope to register at camps before being taken across the country in buses laid on by officials
    Slovenian media had reported late on Thursday that a group of around 600 migrants had left a refugee camp near Zagreb and marched towards the Obrezje border crossing, some 12.5 miles to the west of the Croatian capital.

    At the Obrezje border crossing, the main road towards Croatia, the situation remained calm this morning with an increased number of police deployed on both sides although small groups of migrants could be seen arriving.

    Yesterday, helmeted riot police tried to control growing crowds of refugees at the Croatian border town of Tovarnik, as thousands of migrants jostled to board buses after crossing into the country from neighbouring Serbia.

    But most of the migrants and refugees are not planning to stay in the EU's newest member state. Already, many of those have reached the borders with Slovenia and Hungary, which are both part of the passport-free Schengen zone, leading to harsh words from Hungarian ministers.

    Meanwhile, Czech police and military will conduct a joint drill to be ready to deal with a possible increased numbers of migrants.

    The drill will be conducted along the country's borders and will include hundreds of service members with planes and helicopters.

    Interior Minister Milan Cjovanec says its goal is 'to test the ability of the forces to cooperate in crisis situations.'

    Friday's announcement comes three days after Prime Minster Bohuslav Sobotka said his government is ready to deploy the armed forces to protect the country's borders against migrants.

    Czech police already boosted its presence on the Austrian-Czech border on Sunday in response to Germany's decision to renew border controls along its border with Austria. But the Czechs haven't renewed border checks yet.

    In Slovenia police stopped a train with some 200 refugees on board - the largest number to attempt to enter the country in one go, according to police.


    The Swiss government is offering to take in up to 1,500 refugees under a European Union plan to redistribute 40,000 people around the continent.

     
    Meanwhile, close to 1,000 migrants arrived on a single train in Beli Manastir, on the Hungarian border, where 20 police officers were on hand to encourage them to spend the night in a disused military base.

    Long queues formed for buses bound for migrant reception centres elsewhere in Croatia yesterday, stretching the country's infrastructure to breaking point. Over 100 riot police officers were deployed to control the crowds and keep them back from railway tracks. One man is said to have suffered a heart attack.

    In the capital Zagreb, riot officers surrounded a hotel housing hundreds of refugees after they began chanting 'Freedom! Freedom!' and throwing rolls of toilet paper from balconies and windows. 

    Thanks to its close proximity to the Serbia, thousands of migrants are expected to pass over the Croatia-Hungary border in the coming days, despite the fact it was heavily mined during the Balkans War in the 1990s and remains incredibly dangerous.

    The news comes as Hungary faces worldwide condemnation for using tear gas to disperse crowds at its border, with Serbia's prime minister Aleksandar Vucic accusing the country of 'brutal' and 'non-European' behaviour towards migrants and warning it not to fire tear gas onto its territory again.

    Croatian Foreign Minister Vesna Pusic said late last night that the country was prepared for the arrival of migrants but could not cope if the numbers increased dramatically.

    'We are ready to (provide) asylum to a few thousand people and we can handle that, but we are not ready for tens of thousands,' Pusic told HRT.

    'We do not have capacities' for such an influx, she added.

    Yesterday around 4,000-5,000 migrants attempted to board trains to the Croatian capital Zagreb from the small town of Tovarnik after crossing the border with Serbia, the UN refugee agency said.

    'There are between 4,000 and 5,000 people here,' Jan Kapic, a UNHCR spokesman, said from Tovarnik station in eastern Croatia. 'Trains are coming but they can't take all these people.'


    Up to 5,000 people arrived at the tiny train station overnight. The station was overwhelmed as people slept all along the side of the tracks, with only a handful of Red Cross workers on hand to give out food and provisions for the hundreds of babies and children there.

    More help was on the way, said Kapic, including medical assistance and toilets, the first of which we're being delivered around 9 am.

    'For now we have enough but more will be needed and is on the way...It is very hard to say if this will become the next transit camp. It is down to the Croatian government how it deals with this,' he added.

    Kapic also said that the migrants were now coming straight to the train station without going to the police station for registration, with police overwhelmed by the numbers.

    It is unclear where the migrants would go from Croatia, which borders Slovenia, Austria and Hungary, all of which are members of the passport-free Schengen zone, unlike Croatia.

    Blast: Hungarian police are pictured firing tear gas and water cannon at refugees across the border in Serbia yesterday

    Croatian Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic was due to hold talks in Zagreb with his Austrian counterpart, Chancellor Werner Faymann. Faymann would then travel to Ljubljana to meet Slovenian premier Miro Cerar, his office said.

    Milanovic had vowed that his country would allow free passage of migrants across its territory. A crisis meeting of Croatia's top security body, the National Security Council, was set tot take place today.

    There will be an emergency summit of EU member leaders in Brussels next week to find a solution. European Commission plans to spread 160,000 refugees among member states are already being overhauled.

    When asked to defend its ‘shambolic’ handling of the crisis, commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas said: ‘Shambles or not, that’s how the EU works.’

    Croatia, a former Yugoslav republic, has some 6,000 border police deployed. Since the start of the crisis the Croatian authorities have urged solidarity with migrants, recalling its own role in accommodating hundreds of thousands of refugees during the 1990s Balkans wars.
    Croatian authorities say they are forming a special body to deal with the influx. 

    Interior Minister Ranko Ostojic said the country has the situation under control. But he warned that 'if huge waves start coming through Serbia we must consider different moves.'

    Croatia represents a longer and more arduous route into Europe for the asylum-seekers from Syria and elsewhere who have been fleeing into Europe in the past months. 

    But they have little choice after Hungary sealed off its southern border with Serbia on Tuesday and began arresting anyone caught trying to enter the country illegally.

    The result of the decision to arrest those breaking the border was plain to see, with the number of people intercepted falling to just 367 yesterday from a record 9,380 the day before. Hungary is understood to have a further 1,000 prison spaces ready to be allocated to those breaking through the border.

    Overnight, Hungarian authorities positioned barbed wire and a new gate at the border where the clashes occurred, which was at one of two border crossings near the Serbian village of Horgos.

    Early yesterday hundreds of migrants remained at the two border crossings, but their numbers dwindled as many of them headed toward the Croatian border. Serbian state TV reported that 70 buses transported people overnight to the border with Croatia.

    Overnight Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban reinforced his view that by blocking the predominately Syrian and Afghan refugees, the border police are defending 'Europe's Christian culture' from being overrun by Muslims.

    Yesterday David Miliband, the chief of the International Rescue Committee and brother of former Labour leader Ed, said events on the Serbia-Hungarian border revealed the 'dark side of the European character'.

    'Anyone with an ounce of morality feels appalled by what's happening in parts of Europe,' he added in an interview with the Associated Press.


     Anyone with an ounce of morality feels appalled by what's happening in parts of Europe...[it is] a dark side of the European character. - David Miliband 

    While lauding German leadership in tackling Europe's migrant crisis, the former British foreign secretary said that Hungary's decision to erect a razor-wire fence to stop the influx of migrants was 'misguided and short-sighted, and when it's combined with bullyboy tactics it's obviously appalling.'

    Serbian doctors say two people were seriously injured and up to 300 have sought medical help after Hungarian police used tear gas and water cannons to stop migrants from entering Hungary.

    In the last few months, Hungary has become a main entry point and bottleneck into the European Union for migrants, many of them war refugees from Syria, Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East. More than 200,000 migrants have entered Hungary so far in 2015, nearly all by walking across the southern border with Serbia, as they make their way to Germany or other wealthy Western European nations.

    Miliband's comments came two days after the 28-nation EU failed to come up with a united immigration policy at a contentious meeting in Brussels. 

    Ministers did agree to share responsibility for 40,000 people seeking refuge in overwhelmed Italy and Greece and spoke hopefully of reaching an eventual deal on which EU nations would take 120,000 more refugees, including some from Hungary.

    The IRC boss called the EU failure 'disappointing in all kinds of ways,' but said Europe has no choice but to find another solution. 'Kicking this can down the road, kicking these people down the road is obviously no answer,' Miliband said.


    During yesterday's clashes at the Hungary-Serbia border, 29 people were detained - including a man identified by officials as a 'terrorist'. 

    Hungary's decision this week to shut the EU's external border with Serbia was the most forceful attempt yet by a European country to reduce the flood of refugees and economic migrants overwhelming the bloc.

    As thousands of migrants scattered across the Balkan peninsula tried to reach the EU, Hungary's prime minister said his country planned to put up a fence along parts of its border with Croatia and on the frontier with Romania to stem the flow.

    Helmeted riot police backed by armoured vehicles took up positions at the barricaded border crossing with Serbia, where male migrant youths pelted them with stones, demanding entry.

    Three Hungarian military Humvees, mounted with guns, also arrived at the border. 

    Hungary said it detained a 'terrorist' among 29 migrants held during the clashes. At least 20 policemen and two children were injured, a Hungarian security official said.

    'Police also captured an identified terrorist,' Gyorgy Bakondi, a security adviser to the Hungarian Prime Minister told state television M1. A government spokesman said the man was 'in the database of security services'.

    'It is getting very ugly there,' said Ahmad, 58, a shopkeeper from Baghdad who went to the official border crossing at Sid in Serbia but realised he may have a better chance of entering the EU via Serbia's border with Croatia.

    'As soon as we heard about a route to Croatia we did not wait long. I want to go to Sweden to meet the rest of my family. I hope we will be treated better in Croatia,' he said.
     
    Comment:

    There is something deeper going on here.  At this rate there will be no one left in the Middle East and Europe will be impossibly crowded.  Somehow, someone is profiting big time.

    At this rate there won't be a single job left for European Aryans as all these migrants will work for pennies.  Also, there will be so many on welfare the system will simply implode.

    This could be the beginning of the end of White Europe.  The only hope is National Socialism.  Fortunately many European NS groups are organizing against this planned chaos.  If they are successful, we can take back what is ours (Aryan People's), and if they fail, it may very well be all over for us in Europe.  And make no mistake, White America will follow soon after.

    If we organize NOW we have a chance.  If we fail to act, then that's it for our people.

    Four out of five migrants are NOT from Syria: EU figures expose the 'lie' that the majority of refugees are fleeing war zone

    • Some 44,000 of the 213,000 refugees who arrived in Europe were from Syria
    • A further 27,000 new arrivals on the continent came from Afghanistan
    • Britain received one in 30 of all the asylum claims made by new applicants
    • David Cameron has offered to take in 20,000 refugees but none from the EU

    Only one in every five migrants claiming asylum in Europe is from Syria.
    The EU logged 213,000 arrivals in April, May and June but only 44,000 of them were fleeing the Syrian civil war.

    Campaigners and left-wing MPs have suggested the vast majority of migrants are from the war-torn state, accusing the Government of doing too little to help them.

    'This exposes the lie peddled in some quarters that vast numbers of those reaching Europe are from Syria,' said David Davies, Tory MP for Monmouth. 'Most people who are escaping the war will go to camps in Lebanon or Jordan.

    'Many of those who have opted to risk their lives to come to Europe have done so for economic reasons.'

    Hungary has announced plans to build a giant fence along the Croatian border - just days after sealing off access from Serbia with a 100 mile razor-wire barrier (pictured)
    Hungary's new border fence put up in a matter of a few days.


    Sir Bill Cash, a fellow Tory, said: 'These figures make extremely disturbing reading. The whole argument has been made that this influx is all real refugees from Syria whereas this adds to the substantial evidence that there are a large number of economic migrants who are aiming for a better life.'


    The figures from Eurostat, the EU's official statistical agency, show that migration from April to June was running at double the level of the same period in 2014.}


    The number of Afghans lodging asylum claims is up four-fold, from 6,300 to 27,000. Another 17,700 claims were made by Albanians, whose country is at peace.


    A further 13,900 applicants came from Iraq which, like Syria, is being torn apart by the Islamic State terror group.


    Half a million migrants have arrived in Europe so far this year, with 156,000 coming in August alone. Rather than claiming asylum in the first safe EU country they reach, most head on toward wealthy northern states. The human cost of the crisis has been paid by the estimated 3,000 migrants who have drowned after putting their lives in the hands of people smugglers for the perilous crossing of the Mediterranean.


    Risks being taken by many families were highlighted by the deaths of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi and his brother Galip, five, whose bodies were washed up on the tourist beach of Bodrum in Turkey earlier this month.

    More than 250,000 migrants have reached Greece and Italy, where the authorities are close to breaking point.

    Struggling to cope: Croatia's Prime Minister said today that his country will redirect migrants to Hungary and Slovenia

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel fuelled the chaos last month by declaring that any Syrian who reached the country could claim asylum.


    When the numbers became uncontrollable Berlin shut its borders, throwing Austria, Hungary and other EU countries into turmoil.


    Croatia has received 14,000 migrants in the past two days and was last night moving some to the Hungarian border.


    Hungary is laying razor wire on the border having done the same on its border with Serbia.


    Croatia has closed seven of eight road crossings to Serbia and ordered its border guards to redirect migrants to Hungary and Slovenia. The Hungarian government described this as 'totally unacceptable'.

    Violence broke out yesterday between Syrian and Afghan migrants fighting to board trains across Croatia.


    And Slovenian riot police last night stood in the path of 200 migrants trying to enter from Croatia. Slovenian ministers say they will accept asylum seekers but send back anyone deemed to be an illegal immigrant.

    Britain, which received 7,470 asylum applications between April and June, has come under fire for failing to join an EU scheme to spread 160,000 migrants between the 28 member states. 
    Refugees sit under a bridge at the border between Austria and Germany, in Freilassing, southern Germany this morning
    Migrants living in their own filth under a bridge in Austria.  This is how the liberal's "humanitarianism" is working out.  People homeless because the government who let them in doesn't know what to do with them.  Winter is coming and you know how cold Austria gets.  What will the migrants do then?  Freeze?  Some will.

    David Cameron has announced the UK will shelter 20,000 vulnerable Syrians from camps in Lebanon and Jordan. But he rejected calls to take migrants already in Europe, saying this would encourage more to make the dangerous journey.
    Yvette Cooper, who chairs Labour's refugee taskforce, said: 'Britain's approach of only planning to take refugees from the camps in Syria isn't working.
    'It ignores the crisis also happening in Europe itself and means Britain has no leverage to get other countries to sign up to help.'
    But a Home Office spokesman said: 'Claiming asylum must not be viewed as an easy means of settlement by those who are not actually refugees.
    'We need systems which keep out unfounded claims so we can all respond more quickly and effectively to those genuinely in need of refuge.
    'That is why the UK is focused on resettling genuine Syrian refugees directly from the region. This will ensure we are taking in the most vulnerable people and deter people from attempting the perilously journeys which have already led to so many tragic deaths.'

    Comments:

    It's like I always say:  When you try and help too many people, then everybody suffers. There are only so many jobs, so much money, and so much room and resources to go around.  When you try and stretch that too far, then nobody gets the help they need - especially the citizens of the host country.

    It sounds harsh, but we can't help them all.  Most should be turned back for their sake as well as those of the host country.  I don't mean turn them back to Syria, I mean turn them back to the camps in Turkey.  Living in a refugee camp in Turkey has to be better than living under a bridge in Austria.

    But it's like they say.  Most of these people are not true refugees fleeing imminent danger. They are economic immigrants looking for a better financial life in a European welfare state or the United States.

    As the PM of Hungary said recently, people only have a basic human right to safety, not a better financial life.  After all, 90 percent of the Third World lives in abject squalor.  We can't possibly help them all.  It's like giving a starving man one bite of your sandwich.  If he's starving how much good is a single bite going to do him?  Nothing, that's how much.

    Reminder:  ANP Southwest Division will be having a regional meeting soon.  The exact date has not been set, but will be by next Monday.  If you are interested in attending, let me know.  I would also like to hear suggestions for which weekend we will have it.  Also, the location will be kept confidential.  Only members and OS in good standing who want to attend will be given the time and place.
