Judge Jeanine Pirro explains the “Refugee”controversy in her “Opening Statement” (video above).
With all the opinions, both professional and amateur regarding the acceptance of refugees into the United States, The Quantum Liberty Blog has decided to provide you with an analytical breakdown on US policy and procedures for refugee status and acceptance onto United States soil.
The responsibility of the United States Government and the President of the United States, is to ultimately protect it’s citizens from all enemies, foreign and the domestic.
Outlined in the information to follow, is an overview of the policies and procedures to ensure the protection of the American people from any possible dangers, while ensuring the proper implementation of the Refugee and/or Asylum-Seeker process.
It is important to note:
Determinations by President respecting number of admissions for humanitarian concerns. If the President determines, after appropriate consultation, that (1) an unforeseen emergency refugee situation exists, (2) the admission of certain refugees in response to the emergency refugee situation is justified by grave humanitarian concerns or is otherwise in the national interest, and (3) the admission to the United States of these refugees cannot be accomplished under subsection (a), the President may fix a number of refugees to be admitted to the United States during the succeeding period (not to exceed twelve months) in response to the emergency refugee situation and such admissions shall be allocated among refugees of special humanitarian concern to the United States in accordance with a determination made by the President after the appropriate consultation provided under this subsection.
- Is located outside of the United States
- Is of special humanitarian concern to the United States
- Demonstrates that they were persecuted or fear persecution due to race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group is not firmly resettled in another country
- Is admissible to the United States
You (a bona fide refugee) must receive a referral to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) for consideration as a refugee. (For more information on the referral criteria, see the USRAP Consultations and Worldwide Processing Priorities page).
***The question to note at this point: Have ALL the refugees attempting to enter the United States, properly adhered to this important process?
If you receive a referral, you will receive help filling out your application and then be interviewed abroad by a USCIS officer who will determine whether you are eligible for refugee resettlement. For more information about eligibility, see our Refugee Eligibility Determination page.
Refugee Travel Outside the United States
If you have refugee status and want to travel outside the United States, you will need to obtain a Refugee Travel Document in order to return to the United States. If you do not obtain a Refugee Travel Document in advance of departure, you may be unable to re-enter the United States. If you return to the country from which you fled, you will have to explain how you were able to return safely.
Any alien who is physically present in the United States or who arrives in the United States (whether or not at a designated port of arrival and including an alien who is brought to the United States after having been interdicted in international or United States waters), irrespective of such alien’s status, may apply for asylum in accordance with this section or, where applicable, section 1225(b) of this title.
The U.S. refugee protection system, while generous in many respects, has become less robust over the last two decades. The unique and often diverse needs of emerging refugee populations have exposed severe limitations in the standard resettlement approach. The system’s U.S. Refugee Admissions Program faces significant challenges, among which include heightened security reviews, inadequate coordination between government and NGOs, and unresolved policy tensions between the goals of protecting the most vulnerable.
Vital to the security of the American people and the sovereignty of the United States, this important issue must be resolved with great haste. The rise of terroristic acts within United States borders is of great concern! The American people, ultimately would like to experience the securities that are promised by the United States Constitution.
