'Faith and Protection'—the UNHCR Dialogue on Protection Challenges

Posted on Thu, Jan 24, 2013 at 13:10 pm

The South African Jewish Report just published an op-ed by Alana Baranov about the responsibilities of those in faith-based organizations to communicate and take the lead in supporting humanitarian and peace-building efforts. She discusses this in the context of the fifth UNHCR Dialogue on Protection Challenges, which gathered religious and NGO leaders from around the world, including HIAS' Mark Hetfield, who led the discussion on behalf of the broader Jewish delegation.

[i]To clarify the siitauton, those who are calling for forced removal are advocating that the roughly 300,000 children of illegals born annually should be seperated from their families. Since these children are US citizens, they cannot be deported. What kind of sicko is for this.[/i]I am that kind of sicko...why? I am sick of these illegal parents getting a free ride in terms of healthcare, welfare, food stamps, etc. etc.. Folks, GM has problems in healthcare because the insurance companies are jacking rates only because hospitals are asking for more money because of the uninsured. A national healthcare plan won't help, that will only increase taxes (business and personal) and shift high insurance premiums to the taxes paid amount.I don't care if we remove these folks are not, but we do have two choices: #1: Stop all free money to illegals. If they have kids, the kids get money sent to the parent...just enough to feed the kid. The illegals are making money under the table (ie: No taxes) so they can take care of themselves. #2: No more free, basic healthcare for illegals, only those children who are citizens. If illegals need a trip to the doctor, they need to go south of the border and take care of things down there (where it's likely a pay before you play set up anyway). Either that or they need to start bringing cash to the ER if they want to use it as their Primary Care Physician.Search google. ERs are closing all the time because of the uninsured problem. Nothing but higher insurance costs or higher taxes (if we go national healthcare) will fix it. If my tax rates end up as high as Canada, guess where I plan on moving. The US is become a third world because the elite only care about staying in power. If we are not going to kick these folks out, we need to make them citizens, take their finger prints, give them a SSN, and start making those employeers pay taxes on these people.
