  1. From the OP... "public concern about the rising crime rate to a large increase in the numbers of immigrants"
  2. So far as I'm aware one can snip posts so long as you don't change the context of the content you wish to respond too. The info you are seeking is outlined in my post #257 in this topic. Roughly the same content has been posted many times in similar topics and is available for your detailed research should you have a genuine interest in these matters. To point you in the right direction, not alt news sites, below; BTW to locate and post the URLs took about two minutes. Over to you, kindly do not respond with hard right propaganda / dismissal of facts - thanks. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/dec/01/syrian-refugees-food-crisis-un-world-programme https://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/dec/01/syrian-refugees-food-crisis-un-world-programme http://www.unhcr.org/en-au/news/latest/2017/4/58e347288/unhcr-warns-funding-cuts-threaten-aid-syrian-refugees-hosts.html https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/dec/22/thousands-of-refugees-left-in-cold-as-un-and-eu-accused-of-mismanagement http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=51312 https://www.hrw.org/report/2017/09/14/following-money/lack-transparency-donor-funding-syrian-refugee-education http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=57797
  3. This issue has been addressed numerous times in different topics and factual background / info provided.
  4. If you bothered to do even basic background info in the OP, the majority of crime is identified as being by 'economic refugees' i.e. those rejected for refugee status; accordingly would not be able to sponsor family members.
  5. Something odd about the OP. To obtain new passport only need to quote details of old passport. You would assume if passport held, friend would be given some form of official receipt to present at time of applying for replacement. https://www.passports.gov.au/passportsexplained/pages/quickadultrenewalguide.aspx
  6. Off topic: Wrong again. Guardian has 25 million monthly readers and does not have a paywall, as do many other media organisations. http://www.newsworks.org.uk/Titles-at-a-glance Suppose you get your info from Infowars, Sun etc?
  7. Africa calls Trump racist after 'shithole' remark

    It is a known that using IQ test results indicates racism/bigoted ideology, as does your posting history on this site. What you do omit from your 'research' (being polite) is African migrants in the US have on average higher educational achievement than US citizens. Batalova’s research found that of the 1.4 million who are 25 and older, 41% have a bachelor’s degree, compared with 30% of all immigrants and 32% of the U.S.-born population. Of the 19,000 U.S. immigrants from Norway — a country Trump reportedly told lawmakers is a good source of immigrants — 38% have college educations. http://www.latimes.com/world/africa/la-fg-global-african-immigrants-explainer-20180112-story.html
  8. I notice you completely ignore the fact of Serbian mafia, originating from refugees, who Swedish police have identified as one of the most dangerous organised crime groups. What a surprise, not. Off topic: I assume Christians do the same stuff in Sweden going around the tenements and so on I've seen them in Pattaya going around the Muslim Moo Bans trying to get converts. I disagree with this activity, including trying to convert Buddhists. Personally never seen Muslims doing the same house to house routine.. 'Yes', from my personal interactions in Thailand and Australia the vast majority of Muslims heritage people are fine.
  9. Australian Aged Pension

    On the same web page it states "This measure will start on 1 July 2018 and is ongoing." so unsure
  10. Suppose you're referring to the Serb mafia comprised of "Christians" - LOL
  11. Whatever - if you prefer economic refugees i.e. 'illegals', as are overstayers. Western employers exploit them with very low wages etc, about time they are imprisoned as they should be in Thailand
  12. The Dublin Regulation was criticised for breach of UN Convention for Refugees legal protection norms. Dublin 111 Regulation was waived in 2015 due to lack of resources / funding by the EU which led to the Greek, Hungarian & Italian governments being overwhelmed in their roles in managing the Regulation. For the commission, this constitutes a recognition of the fact that we cannot leave the member states at the external borders alone in dealing with a large number of asylum seekers seeking refuge in Europe," said Natasha Bertaud, spokeswoman for the EU Commission. http://www.dw.com/en/germany-suspends-dublin-rules-for-syrians/a-18671698 EU and other governments severely underfunded Turkey and other regional countries hosting millions of foreign nationals which created the momentum for influx into the EU (at the time huge backlog in processing claims, insufficient housing/ no work/running out of savings etc). As we know large numbers of economic asylum seekers, eventually estimated at 60% of all asylum seekers, leveraged the situation which created further havoc.
  13. Never was, look it up - a hint... Neither the 1951 Refugee Convention nor EU law requires a refugee to claim asylum in one country rather than another. There is no rule requiring refugees to claim in the first safe country in which they arrive.
  14. You may well be on the opinion, but it's obvious to whom the reports refers and it ain't Muslims, nor are all Muslims of the same beliefs e.g. I have known gay Muslims, Muslims having sex outside of marriage etc etc
