Now They Want To Designate Them As Refugees!

It has come to our attention that there is a broad movement afoot in the media and in some Administration quarters to designate the thousands of illegal alien children who have flooded into this country from Central America as refugees based upon claims that they are all fleeing from crime and poverty in their home nations!

 

Refugee status? Let me remind you that the term "refugee" for the purpose of this issue, is a legal term which is specifically defined by Federal Regulation. These regulations require that, to be classified as a Refugee based on past persecution, a person must establish that he or she has suffered persecution in the past in their home country based on race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion (Title 8, Code of Federal Regulations, § 208.13(b)(1)(iii)(A).

Additionally, the Board of Immigration Appeals, the highest administrative appellate authority for ruling on requests for asylum and refugee status in the U.S., has already officially ruled that Honduran street children, who fear street crime, or who are fleeing from poverty are not members of a social group eligible for refugee status.

We are deeply concerned based on the past free wheeling practices of  the Administration, that suggesting a broad use of the term "Refugee" may be a foot in the door effort to redefine eligibility for such status. Be forewarned.
