Asylum

Silverfiddle Rant!

I was mistaken. I thought foreigners could apply for asylum at any US embassy or consulate. They cannot. They must do so in the US.  I think this is one of the roots of the current crisis.




According to NOLO...
Asylum is a form of legal protection available to certain people who cannot or would not feel safe if they tried to live in their home country, because of past persecution or the danger of future persecution based on their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.
But you can only seek asylum in the US...
Unfortunately, U.S. embassies and consulates cannot process requests for this form of protection because, under U.S. law, asylum seekers can apply only if they are physically present in the United States (or at least at a U.S. border or other point of entry).
DHS Websites say the same. Go here to see the process for making an asylum claim.

Our immigration laws are insane and designed to encourage one and all to show up, surrender at the border, see the judge, receive your taxpayer-funded bus tickets to whichever US city the rest of your family resides illegally, and never be molested again by the cruel and racist Tio Sam...

  1. This is yet another reason that ALL immigration should be ceased, while we overhaul our immigration, customs and border security processes and apparatus.

    You can't repair a car while it's sputtering down the road.

  2. Once again I offer my favorite quotation from Charles Dickens spoken by the Beadle in Oliver Twist:

    "If that be the law, then THE LAW IS A ASS."

    He did A ass, and not AN ass, as most assert.

    Go look it up if you don't believe me.

  3. By the way what possible good could any ASYLUM provide if the INMATES are running it?

    That certainly seems to be the case with our Not-So-United States now that the DemoThugs have gotten their filthy hands on the levers of power once again.

    Since Election Day: Democrats Pick Off Over a Dozen GOP House Seats and 2 Senate Seats … And They’re Going for More

    Gateway Pundit,

    by Jim Hoft

    Democrats had a decent haul on election night but since Election Day the Democrats have had a spectacular run. In the US Senate Democrats picked up two seats since Election Day.** In Montana Senator Jon Tester — who was behind on election day — had a huge haul overnight and won by 5 points.** In Arizona Taliban-supporting Marxist Kyrsten Sinema was declared the winner a week after votes were cast after being behind on election night** In Florida Democrats have discovered a secret stash of 83,000 votes since election day! Senator Bill Nelson is now surprisingly only 12,000 votes down here ...

    1. Once the election process is "hijacked," we no longer have a republic.

    2. It sure looks that way. Something is seriously out of whack when no one can ever find sufficent evidence to hold DEMOCRATS accountable for their copious misdeeds, while REPUBLICANS always get a SLAP in the FACE, a KICK in the SHINS, a KNEE in the GROIN and and an AXE in the NECK!

    Arizona Illustrates the RINO Revenge

    American Greatness,

    by Henry Olsen

    Arizona’s Senate race was perhaps the most surprising, and disturbing, midterm result for Republicans and Trump fans. Many struggle to understand how Barry Goldwater’s home state will send a former pink tutu-wearing antiwar activist to Washington. The answer is instructive regarding what Trump Republicanism must do to build a majority. The biggest reason Martha McSally lost is the same reason Republicans lost control of the House: RINOs. Across the nation, moderate college-educated independents who had frequently backed Republicans in prior elections switched sides. We can see this trend both in the Arizona exit polls and the results reported to date. ...

  7. What is happening to our Election System Right Now is a Disgrace, and it MUST be stopped RIGHT NOW

  8. Brenda Snipes MUST be stopped and sent directly to Jail, without passing GO and collecting 200 dollars! She is a threat to our democracy.. We should be having a Special Investigator investigating these CROOKS, NOT the President, and NOT that phony BS Republican “Collusion”. But these people including Brenda Snipes who are destroying our Elections!, and making fools out of our voters.
    What is happening to our Election System Right Now is a Disgrace, and it MUST be stopped RIGHT NOW!
    The US democracy is just about all that is left of our foundation of freedom. The foundation of free and fair elections. We do NOT need election supervisors deliberately mishandling votes, to try to have their party's candidates win! This is the destruction of the foundation of what America is, and has always been.

    And this is NOT the first time that she has done this, she destroyed ballots in the 2016 democrat primary. She rigged it for Debbi Whats-Her-Name-Schultz who went on to Rig it for the Hildabeast. A Judge determined that she broke the law then. And she's breaking the law Again Now. And the Leftists cheer her on!
    .
    I as patriotic Americans, say that we cannot allow our nation to be torn apart by the very people who have been entrusted to oversee our very important elections processes. Brenda Snipes is the perfect example of all that's wrong with America today!
    This unfit women even refused to give Governor Rick Scott's campaign the information they wanted to prove her dishonesty even after a Judge ordered her to do so and she refused. Who the Hell is she to just outright refuse a Judge’s orders?
    And not only has Brenda Snipes violated that trust but so have other elections officials such as Susan Bucher in Florida's Palm Beach county, Adrian Flores in Arizona, and allegedly others in other states such as California, etc. Even Jeb Bush, who appointed Brenda Snipes is calling for her removal,

    It’s Unscrupulous Corrupt. Creeps like Snipes, and Bucher, and Flores, who are abusing their authority, and VIOLATING LAWS, to STEAL elections, from those who properly won Them, Fair and Square.
    If these people are not arrested and jailed, this kind of abuse will surely grow, and our elections system in this country will fall apart entirely.
    There needs to be accountability.. Brenda Snipes must do jail time once and for all. . Anything less is an attack on our fundamental system of democracy, and we then can forget about every thing else. We will become just like everything that we hate..

  10. NOW DIG THIS REVOLTING DEVELOPMENT. ANOTHER SIGN OF THE TIMES PORTENTOUS OF IMMINENT RUIN FOR THE U.S.A. AS FOUNDED

    Fox News Caves

    Donsurber.com,

    by Don Surber

    Fox News today sided with CNN in its obnoxious lawsuit against President Trump. CNN seeks to force the president to debate Jim Acosta at press conferences. Fox News now is just another corporate cheerleader for globalism. I predicted this when Roger Ailes retired under pressure. (Snip) That is because they hate President Trump because they hate conservatives. Oh sure, Fox News has Tucker Carlson and the rest of the yakkers on because it needs conservative viewers. But the management there hates conservatives. ...

    1. Gradually, ever since Mr. Trump began campaigning in earnest almpst three years ago, FOX News has been transforming itself into FUX News.

      FOX BUSINESS Channel, however, still maintains steadfast identification with our president's policies, but for how long?

  11. I'm forever fascinated that random, profile-less people come to blogs and post off-topic screeds, and rants regarding other alleged bloggers who aren't to be found here....

    1. Whyfascinated, CI? I find such people to belong in one of two camps:

      1) Rude, Fractious, Intentionally Disruptive

      2) Mantally Lazy, Careless, Lacking Curiosity, showing Low Intelligence

      Neither is particularly interesting –– at least to me. I see them merely as stones in a road that might lead to pleasant, possibly enlightening, maybe even productive conversation were it not for their distracting presence.

  12. I disagree, you need an "acta non verba" asylum policy or the bleeding-heart progressives will flood the US in asylum seekers. Real asylum should only be granted at the risk of life and limb (or it's technically "economic asylum").
