These men are Africans who arrived illegally in Malta and were transformed into refugees so that they might be resettled in your town in America. Legitimate refugees are expected to be granted or denied asylum in the first safe country in which they arrive—in this case Malta (a member of the European Union)—but as of 2007, the US (the Bush State Department!) changed the rules apparently under pressure from Jesuits in Malta and began the unprecedented policy of just taking them off Malta’s and Europe’s hands.
LOL! It would be like us asking Malta (Europe) to take some of our illegal aliens from Mexico because we have too many.
Here is the latest news from The Malta Independent:
31 persons from Somalia, Eritrea and Sudan including a family of three and 28 single adult men left today to start a new life in the United States, under the US Refugee Resettlement Program (USRRP). On arrival, they will be assisted by NGOs in the US to proceed to their final destinations in various states.
This latest departure brings the total of beneficiaries of international protection who were resettled to the United States from Malta since 2007 to 958 migrants. Since the start of the USRRP in 2008, the number of beneficiaries of protection resettled to the United States amounts to 930.
To date, 147 migrants have been resettled from Malta to the United States of America during 2012. Such resettlements to the United States will continue in the coming weeks.
In all 1,592 refugees and beneficiaries of international protection have been relocated or resettled to various other developed countries since 2005.
Search RRW for “Malta” for more on this initiative that only encourages more illegal economic migrants to cross the Mediterranean in hopes of winning the “refugee” lottery and being airlifted to America at American taxpayer expense. How much do you want to bet the single men will be dropped off in a meat packing town?
And, I wonder when we will start helping other countries with their illegal immigrant populations of single adult men—will it be Greece next, or Italy?
