Approximately five-hundred cases of declined refuge-seekers being raped, kidnapped, and assaulted since Biden took office: report

Published

on

Approximately five-hundred violent acts have been acted against refuge-seekers who were declined passage into the United States from the southern border since Biden was elected president, reported by Human Rights First, Haitian Bridge Alliance, and Al Otro Lado.

The report titled, “Failure to Protect: Biden Administration Continues Illegal Trump Policy to Block and Expel Asylum Seekers to Danger” found at least four-hundred ninety-two violent acts that directly target refuge-seekers who had been barred from requesting refuge protection at the U.S.-Mexico border or were removed. The violent assaults include kidnapping, rape, and assault.

The numbers go off on more than a hundred interviews and an electronic surveys of somewhere around twelve hundred thousand refuge-seekers in the Mexican state of Baja California, reported by the Intercept.

The report noted that families are still being separated, and the illegal expulsions policy continues to endanger unattended adolescents, and claimed that some adolescents are being removed from the United States without properly screening for trafficking risk.

CBP declared there were 18,890 unattended adolescents found by U.S. border authorities in March — a 100% increase over February. There were also 53,000 family unit aliens found at the southern border in March, and over 172,000 people total tried to have entry into the United States.

Human Rights First interviewed over one hundred fifty refuge-seekers in March and April, none of which were able to apply for refuge or given a protection screening by U.S. immigration officers before being returned to Mexico.

The Biden admin has barred and removed refuge-seeking families and adults from Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cuba, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Russia, Somalia, Venezuela, and Yemen. African, Caribbean and other Black refuge seekers and migrants have been left pretty vulnerable by this policy, suffering anti-Black violence and discrimination while left at the border for months or even years, Human Rights First reported.

As of February, there were around16,250 refuge-seekers on waiting lists in nine Mexican border cities, reported by the University of Texas’ Strauss Center. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection practices “metering,” which turns away “thousands of people who come to ports of entry seeking protection,” reported by the American Immigration Council. “Under metering, CBP officers assert a lack of capacity to refuse to inspect and process asylum seekers, requiring them to wait for weeks or months in Mexico just for the opportunity to start the asylum process.”

The report shines a light on a Guatemalan family with a 6-year-old child who were kidnapped at a Mexican bus station in February soon after Border Patrol removed them out of the United States. The family was held for a ransom. The report also cited a Washington Post article about a ten year old boy and his mother from Nicaragua being kidnapped hours after being removed to Mexico in March.

One refuge-seeker told Human Rights First that “Border Patrol agents told her that ‘the new president isn’t taking anyone’ and that she should present herself ‘legally’ even though ports of entry were, and remain, closed to asylum seekers in violation of U.S. law, which guarantees access to asylum to individuals at the border, including at ports of entry.”

To ease the current border crisis, Human Rights First requests that the Biden administration put an end to Title 42, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention public health order that is used to ban refuge-seekers into the United States when the CDC director believes that “there is serious danger of the introduction of [a communicable] disease into the United States.”

On March 20, 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services implemented section 265 of U.S. Code Title 42, which gave Border Patrol powers to expel “individuals who arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border, without giving them the opportunity to seek asylum.” The Biden administration amended Title 42 to allow entrance for unattended migrant adolescents.

Despite his promises to reverse President Trump’s cruelty at the border, President Biden is continuing a policy that is creating havoc. The policy puts children in danger, separates families, and illegally returns refuge seekers to danger, including Black and LGBTQ refugees forced to go through bias-motivated violence in Mexico, Human Rights First claimed.

President Biden says the Pope advised him to continue to take communion and considered him a ‘good Catholic’

Published

President Joe Biden said that Pope Francis let him know he was a “good Catholic” and said he could keep on taking communion regardless of the complaints of numerous U.S. bishops.

Biden made the case after a private gathering with the pontiff at the Vatican on Friday.

“We just talked about the fact he was happy that I was a good Catholic and I should keep receiving Communion,” Biden said about the gathering.

He added that the topic of abortion didn’t come up in the gathering.

An assertion from the White House showed that Biden said thanks to the Pope for pushing for an “equitable global economic recovery” and for battling global warming.

“Biden thanked His Holiness for his advocacy for the world’s poor and those suffering from hunger, conflict, and persecution,” the assertion added.

The Vatican didn’t affirm Biden’s case in their official statement about their gathering.

Biden’s claim will probably disappoint and outrage many conservative Catholics in the U.S. who have called for communion to be declined to politicians who stand behind abortion, which is in opposition to Catholic church teaching.

The issue will be taken up by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops following upon a vote during their June plenary meeting to address it generally. After Biden met with the Pope, they delivered an assertion saying that they would not single out a particular legislator if they vote to say something about the issue.

The Pope had recently reacted to the contention by approaching the diocesans to try not to politicize the congregation’s most elevated holy observance, which would transform it into a “source of discord rather than unity within the episcopate and the larger church in the United States.”

Gold Star father tears into Biden over supposed arrangement to give large installments to illegal migrant families

Published

Gold Star father David Horton slammed President Joe Biden in a meeting Sunday, scrutinizing the Biden organization’s accounted for plan to convey huge financial installments to some migrant families.

The Wall Street Journal announced last week about the arrangement to pay migrant families affected by previous President Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance illegal immigration policies.

The Biden administration is in talks to offer immigrant families that were separated during the Trump administration around $450,000 a person in compensation, according to people familiar with the matter, as several agencies work to resolve lawsuits filed on behalf of parents and children who say the government subjected them to lasting psychological trauma.

The U.S. Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering payments that could amount to close to $1 million a family, though the final numbers could shift, the people familiar with the matter said. Most of the families that crossed the border illegally from Mexico to seek asylum in the U.S. included one parent and one child, the people said. Many families would likely get smaller payouts, depending on their circumstances, the people said.

Among the issues pundits have raised with the arrangement, the greatest is that non-citizens remain to get additional cash from the U.S. government than gold star families if the arrangement becomes reality.

As of now, the U.S. government pays the group of fallen assistance individuals $100,000 in “death gratuity”; the installments are tax excluded. The families of service members additionally have the choice to gather a limit of $400,000 in extra security, however administration individuals need to pay into the protection intend to accept its advantages.

Speaking on “Fox and Friends,” Horton — whose son, Army Spc. Christopher Horton, was killed in Afghanistan in 2011 — proclaimed the Biden administration’s arrangement “an insult” and clarified it disrespects military families.

“I think it’s another — yet another insult … against our military families and Gold Star families and veterans’ families,” Horton said. “It’s just another another slap in the face. It’s completely disrespectful.”

“To compare an illegal person who has broken our country’s border laws … they’ve broken the law coming in on our borders and to compare that with someone, a patriot like my son, who gave his all on the battlefield of Afghanistan, and to just say, ‘Oh well, the value is more for someone who has broken our laws’ … and now to say, ‘Oh, we owe you money — and it’s more money than we would pay a patriot — I am outraged,” Horton said.

“You just wonder, where is the outcry against some of these policies that are just there? Unbelievable to me,” Horton added.
