“Can you really call yourself a reporter” if you don’t know what a “refugee” is?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Illegal immigrants are just walking right into Canada. From Mexico. How is that happening? Because, as you know, Mexico does not in fact share a border with Canada.

On last night's show, I showed you how the Vancouver Province is reporting this story...

@drew : These people haven’t been deported (the ones in the aforementioned article). They are refugees since they have fled their home country because of political conditions (in the case of Mexicans). They become asylum seekers looking for official refugee status per the 1951 Refugee convention. The people didn’t get denied asylum in the US, they never applied for it there.

If their asylum request is denied in Canada and they are returned back to their home country then they are no longer refugees in any context because they are back in their home nation. The Province article correctly used the term asylum seeker and refugee in the proper contexts of that article.

Michael Petch they call many people refugees who are not refugees and you damn well know it. Being deported does not make you a refugee.

Well you just have to look at the majority of claim requests of Mexicans fleeing to the US and seeking asylum and refugee status. Most people fleeing Mexico make asylum requests on political grounds. Political grounds is rather broad, but happens to include those people who may fleeing drug cartel violence and cartel terrorism which is pretty much country wide now. According to the US about 10% of Mexicans who make asylum requests on these grounds are granted refugee status.

It should be noted that refugee has different contexts. If you flee a country because of violence for example then you are a refugee in the general sense. Contrary to what some people may wish you to believe – refugees (those who are fleeing) can make their asylum request in any country they wish. The 1951 convention on refugees and subsequent international agreement are for nations to sort out asylum requests and refugee claims. It doesn’t actually restrict refugees from going to the country of their choice. The problem is that they may be refused and sent to another nation to make their asylum claim per the refugee conventions that nations have agreed to.

Once refugees reach their destination country (even if they passed through other safe nations) they can make an asylum request (as an asylum seeker) under the 1951 refugee convention. If an asylum seekers claim is accepted they obtain refugee status. The term refugee now has a different context.

@michael Petch…yeah we know that…but Mexico…what are you fleeing? The cartel who you failed to deliver as a mule? The government does not persecute Mexicans for any normal refugee criteria. Or Ghana …the gold country…no civil war….no government sponsored suppression. Are they gay? why are they arriving with wife and kids?

Many of these claimants will no doubt say they are afraid of Trump’s policies…which are overblown REALLY FAKE NEWS OF THE LUGENPRESS and not a valid reason. The Trump regieme has not been refusing refugees…they have decided to screen them more rigourously…which is not unreasonable.

In this case the deception is entirely Ezra. The Province correctly reported that asylum seekers were seeking refugee status. The failure with Ezra is that anyone who knows anything about the US-Canada Safe Third Country Agreement is that it no longer applies if an asylum seeker crosses the border outside an official point of entry. Once on Canadian soil, if they make an asylum claim then they are Canada’s problem and not the US. The agreement only applies to those who legally cross. Had they legally tried to cross their Canadian asylum claim would be rejected and they’d turned back to the US for asylum processing per the agreement.

This is exactly the reason people are crossing the border illegally (by the way crossing the border is illegal, but not criminal in Canada unless part of criminal endeavor like drug smuggling etc). The Asylum seekers are fully aware that the Safe Third Country agreement no longer applies. Same would apply to the situation where asylum seekers (seeking refugee status) may flow illegally into the US.

Just because they crossed from the US illegally and made their claim on Canadian soil doesn’t mean they are fleeing the US. If a claim is made on Canadian soil the asylum seekers home is the place they originally fled from.

The misuse of vocabulary in order to deceive and mislead readership is part and parcel of why the LUGENPRESS is continually being called out for REALLY FAKE NEWS and this will continue until these media go out of business.

Anybody who follows the call of Islam and it’s false God, Muhammad, has to be Bat Sht Crazy. The proof is in the Pudding.

Apparently mohammedan man arrested for concordia bomb hoax. This is HOW MANY fake anti-mohammedan “hate crimes” to date? Ste Foy happened, no denying it. So did 9/11, San Bernardino, WTC 1993, Parliament Hill/St Jean 2015, Chattanooga, Orlando…. the list is too long to cite here. mohammedans are RARELY IF EVER the victims of violence compared to civilised people.

Muslims are granted a general dispensation for lying and deviating from the Quran as long as their intent is to fool the infidels.
On that basis , if I was a tricky Muslim I would change my name to John Brown or Hank Snow or something that would not automatically identify me as a follower of Islam. Using Anglo-Saxon names could also lead to an inference that is was an evil right wing white supremacist Islamophobe that actually committed the crime.

Harley McCartney, I saw that, too. The suspect’s name is Hisham Saadi, so he’s hardly a white supremacist like the MSM so desperately wishes he were so the story would fit right into their narrative. It’s just another in the long line of fake Muslim victimization reports.

Oh he is a Lebanese Muslim, so he may have a mental disorder. Yes, they sent him for an assessment as no Muslim could do anything wrong unless there were extenuating circumstances.
