The U.S. will aim to resettle up to 50,000 refugees from Latin America and the Caribbean in the next 12 months as part of a Biden administration plan to welcome as many as 125,000 people fleeing violence across the globe in fiscal year 2024.

In 2023 haben wir bisher eine Zuwanderung von #Refugees von gerade mal 217.000 und es sind nur noch 3 Monate übrig!

Und crossmedial wird mal wieder von einer "Flüchtlingskatastrophe" schwadruliert*.

#SuellaBraverman is spouting some dangerous doublethink.

How can she claim #refugees are "uncontrolled and illegal migration" while also telling the international community they have “collectively failed” to reform the UN’s 1951 refugee convention and the ECHR?

She is either lying about refugees or international law, which is it?

Also, is it possible she's trying to reform international law to make her political lies true?

UK’s Suella Braverman says LGBTQ+ persecution not enough for asylum claims

British home secretary argues fear of discrimination should no longer be sufficient grounds for granting asylum and that 1951 UN Refugee Convention must be reformed.

There's a reason why the post-WW2 UN #refugees convention includes those with a well founded fear of persecution, not just those being persecuted. Replace Braverman's "Gay" with "Jewish" and you've got the anti-refugee arguments from the 1930s.

Unsurprisingly, much like Sunak’s climate u-turn, home secretary Braverman’s speech has drawn fierce backlash, with Enver Solomon, the chief executive of the Refugee Council saying:

“A world where the UK and other western nations pull up the drawbridge and turn their backs on those who have been tortured, persecuted and faced terror because of their gender, sexuality or any other reason, is a world which turns its back on a belief in shared humanity and shared rights,”

In order to criticise a Treaty, Protocol, Law or Contract one must first understand it. There is no discernable evidence that the UK Home Secretary, Suella Braverman does understand either the 1951 Refugee Treaty or the Treaty Protocol of 1966/67 and still less the UK's legal duties and responsibilities as a signatory.

Solche und ähnliche autoritäre Kontrollvorhaben werden von Staaten und Behörden (oft in Kooperation mit privaten Unternehmen) gerne an Geflüchteten oder anderen Gruppen getestet und optimiert, die rechtlich schlechter gestellt und ihrer Gnade ausgeliefert sind. So gibt es etwa in #Australien seit einigen Jahren eine "Cashless Welfare Card", die arbeitslose und #Sozialhilfe empfangende Menschen statt Bargeld/Kontoeinzahlungen erhalten und die so programmiert wurde, dass nur bestimmte Waren an bestimmten Orten damit erworben werden können.

Until last month, newly recognised refugees and survivors of trafficking had 28 days to find alternative accommodation after receiving a “notice to quit” before being evicted from Home Office accommodation they had lived in while officials were processing their claims. The Home Office has now reduced this to a minimum of seven days, so thousands could become homeless.

As ever, with the Tories, the cruelty is the point.

Weeks of the government screaming that of course the Bibby Stockholm barge is safe and anyone suggesting otherwise is an idiot biased lefty lawyer - then days after the first asylum seekers are moved there they have to be evacuated because of potentially deadly bacteria.

But oh, it gets worse, as #Refugee charity, #Care4Calais is now reporting the government did NOT inform #Refugees about the presence of #Legionnaire's disease on the #BibbyStockholm prison barge, or immediately move them off once they knew it was there.

Worse, there is the possibility they were still moving refugees onto the barge even once the problem was known.

#UK #News #Dorset #Tories

A Facebook post (oh, do stop complaining), published 11/08/2023, at 18:57 BST, by Care4Calais, a charity supporting refugees in France, Belgium and the UK. It documents serious allegations against the British government and its handling of the notorious Bibby Stockholm prison barge. 

At the bottom is an aerial shot of the barge, which does indeed look rather carcereal. There are 72 likes, including   Angry and Sad faces, plus 11 comments and 27 shares.

The post says (edited for length):

"...This morning, it emerged that unsafe levels of Legionella pneumophila bacteria had been found in the barge's water supply... Because of this risk, everyone on the barge should have been evacuated immediately. 

"However this did not happen. 
At lunchtime we were contacted by three men on the barge who had not been informed of the outbreak, nor warned to avoid the water....  It transpired that other refugees were on the barge, but none knew of the danger....

"The Government must now explain:

"• When the results of the legionella testing, which took place on July 25 were known. 
• If it followed its own guidelines in re-commissioning the heating and ventilation systems on board the barge.
• Why people were not told about the risk to their health once the authorities were aware of it.
• Why people were kept on the barge, and why more transfers were attempted, when the presence of the bacteria was known.
• If everyone who was aboard the barge has been tested for Legionnaire's disease..."
