Honduras arrests five Syrians heading to US with fake passports: report

Authorities in Honduras say they have arrested five Syrian nationals who were attempting to travel to the United States using stolen Greek passports, according to Reuters.
 
Authorities said there was no apparent indication the Syrians were among suspects linked to last week's attacks in Paris, the news outlet reported.
 
Debate has raged since the Friday attacks over whether terrorists may attempt to slip into the U.S. after reports that one Paris attacker may have come to Europe mixed in with Syrian refugees.
 
A French official said a passport found near a Paris suspect's body and had passed through Greece border controls was probably stolen, The New York Times reported.

Someone in a different thread tried to muddy the water blaming all war deaths on Religion/Christianity...

It's beginning.

Obama is disarming all police departments.




Macomb County forced to hand back military vehicle



MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. (WJBK) - Macomb County has less than a month to return a tank to the defense department that was originally part of a program to repurpose military equipment and given to law enforcement. However, after the riots in Ferguson last year, President Barack Obama issued an executive order to take away the equipment. County leaders are fighting the order saying doing so, would put officers at risk.

Macomb County got the armed personnel carrier back in 2004 from the U.S. Military. Now that he's got to send it back, County Executive Mark Hackel isn't happy.

Does Obama really think the military is going to stand behind him when he tries to take over the country to completely destroy it?

It is reported that Syrian refugees are said to pass high level of security before entering this country. Correct me if I'm wrong... and I'm sure some will, lol... but wasn't the brothers of the Boston Marathon bombing refugees?


http://www.snopes.com/tsarnaev-refugees/

WHAT'S TRUE: The Tsarnaev brothers' father applied for political asylum after arriving in the United States.

WHAT'S FALSE: The Tsarnaev family entered the United States by claiming to be refugees.

Pretty much the same thing - just differentiates where your claim starts... 


Characteristics of refugees

The U.S. government has much tighter restrictions on who can be labeled a refugee, but there are many more refugees than asylees granted legal status per year. Each year, the President determines how many refugees will be allowed to enter the U.S. In fiscal year 2013, 69,930 refugees were authorized to enter the U.S., just 70 people shy of the 70,000 maximum. Iraq, Burma, and Bhutan sent the largest groups of refugees to the U.S. (Update: In fiscal year 2014, 69,986 refugees entered the United States. Numbers for 2015 are not yet available.)

In order to be a refugee under U.S. immigration law,

You must fit the requirements regarding persecution (listed above)
You must secure refugee status while you are still outside the United States. You cannot seek refugee status once you are inside.
Your case is of special humanitarian concern to the United States.
You can be labeled admissible for legal entry into the United States.
Characteristics of asylees

For the last decade, the United States has been accepting between 20,000 and 30,000 asylum applicants per year. Popular countries of U.S. asylum seekers include China, Venezuela, and Ethiopia, Egypt, and Haiti.

To seek asylum in the U.S. under current laws,

You fit the requirements of living under threat of persecution as a refugee (listed above).
You are already present in the United States or are seeking admission at a port of entry.
One important difference is that asylees do not have to have legal immigration status to apply for protection. This is one of the reasons why it has become a popular method with DREAMers and undocumented immigrants who don’t have any other alternatives to seek legal status.

There are two ways to apply for asylum in the U.S.: affirmatively (voluntarily or preemptively) or defensively. Defensive applicants are those who ask for asylum in response for being detained or apprehended by immigration enforcement. In 2013, slightly more than half of asylees gained refuge through affirmative applications.

Just why not the UN establish safe zones in the Mid East and keep them over there.
