By the way, as is the case worldwide, the majority of “asylum seekers” are in fact economic migrants looking for a better life.  But, they and their human traffickers have latched on to those words “refugees” and “asylum” knowing how most governments are too soft to turn them away.

South Africa sending refugees to Australia!

And, news flash!  We are taking some too!

So why can’t they go back to Somalia now?

My Somalia alerts these days are filled with stories about how Somalia has a new government after two decades of violence and chaos.  The stories are all filled with encouraging accounts of how Mogadishu is now recovering (I told you about this here just last month). So tell me why the UN and the new […]
