WASHINGTON — Human rights activists in 24 cities around the world protested outside Chinese embassies on Friday and delivered petitions calling on the Chinese government to stop killing North Korean defectors by repatriating them back to their home country.
While it is an offense punishable by death or imprisonment for North Korean citizens to defect from the country and the oppressive Kim regime, the Chinese government helps facilitate North Korea's crimes against humanity by refusing to grant North Korean defectors refugee status and by sending thousands of them back to North Korea knowing full well that they will be tortured, forced to do hard labor and even killed in political prison camps.
In 2014, a 400-page United Nations report extensively detailed the widespread torture and abuse that North Korea is responsible for and found that China is violating its responsibility under international human rights and refugee laws. more >>
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Hungary-born globalist billionaire George Soros have squared off on the issue of borders and immigration.
Orban is concerned for the spiritual and cultural survival of his nation and others in the European Union.
In a March speech, Orban decried the globalist political correctness that tries to forbid him and other European leaders from pointing out "that the masses arriving from other civilizations endanger our way of life, our culture, our customs and our Christian traditions." more >>
"Borders are the worst invention ever made by politicians," said European Union (EU) President Jean-Claude Juncker recently.
There are two striking errors in Juncker's view. First, borders are not a "worst invention." They are essential in a fallen world. Second, borders were not the "invention" of "politicians," but given by the world's Designer and Creator.
Juncker reflects a progressive-socialist utopian worldview that long ago rid itself of the niggling notion of God. It lost its reference point and bearings in a chaotic world. Feverishly trying to recover the Garden of Eden through constructing borderless utopia, Juncker and the progressivist globalists are giving us dystopia. more >>
Much has been made in recent days about the appearance of the "alt-right," on the American political landscape with Hillary Clinton tying Donald Trump to the movement in an Aug. 25 Reno, Nevada campaign speech.
"The de facto merger between [news site] Breitbart and the Trump campaign, represents a landmark acheivement for the alt-Right. A fringe element has effectively taken over the Republican party," Clinton said, adding that the phenomenon is part of a larger trend of rising hardline, rightwing nationalism happening around the world.
Whether or not Trump actually represents the alt-right is debatable, particularly since he has not embraced the traditional Republican opposition to affirmative action and does not talk about inherent differences in the races, something hard core alt-right devotees do obsessively. But in light of Trump's anti-immigration rhetoric, denouncements of political correctness and professed admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin, many alt-Righties have indeed enthusiastically latched onto his campaign. more >>
The Reverend Samuel Rodriguez of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was open-minded when they spoke about immigration, but his recent speech was "disheartening."
Trump addressed a crowd in Phoenix, Arizona on Wednesday, arguing in favor of building a wall and rejecting a path to citizenship for those who entered the United States illegally, labeling it "amnesty."
Expressing disappointment, Rev. Rodriguez said in a statement on Wednesday that he believed Trump did not offer "practical solutions" for how to deal with the nation's approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants. more >>
Austrian police in Vienna have arrested nine Iraqi asylum seekers and refugees over the alleged gang-rape of a 28-year-old German woman that happened on New Year's Day, reports have said.
A police spokesman said that the nine men are between the ages of 21 to 47, and all have either applied for or been granted asylum in Austria.
The men deny the alleged crime, Reuters reported, in which they are accused of gang-raping a German woman who was visiting a friend in Vienna in the apartment where two of the suspects were staying. more >>
