On the southern border of the United States, an influx of thousands of illegal immigrants, including unaccompanied children, has been migrating from Central America and finding that housing facilities are overflowing. Local communities across the country, including in California and New York, have refused to permit overflow shelters to house the immigrant children to be opened.
The cost of the crisis for the American people is staggering. Taxpayer money is used to secure space for the detention and feeding of the illegal immigrants. In June, the White House announced a plan to spend millions by sending aide to governments in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador to help reduce crime and violence in an "effort" to reduce immigration.
The response from the Obama administration has been ineffectual at best, and the president has taken what some critics view as an "aloof" position on the crisis. Enter the United Nations, which, perhaps unsurprisingly, has interests other than that of the United States to protect in this crisis.
WorldNetDaily reported, "Representatives of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, or UNHRC, are 'intensely discussing in meetings' the possibility of extending U.N. protection to the thousands of Central Americans crossing the U.S. border with Mexico illegally by defining them as 'refugees' who are seeking asylum from political and domestic violence in their home nations, WND has confirmed."
A 10-nation meeting in Nicaragua was held last week with ministers from the United States, Mexico and various Central American countries. Those in attendance included representatives from SICA, an El-Salvador-headquartered non-government organization endorsed by the UN General Assembly in 1993 to create regional bodies authorized to interact with the United Nations.
Preliminary reports indicate that the officials concluded that the illegal aliens are "refugees" and therefore deserve international protection. The ministers cited the United Nation's declaration on the rights of refugees.
