Human trafficking is a crime. Source: VIDEO: Muslim Refugees Taught To Lie About Being Christian By NGOs – Big League Politics
By Luke Rohlfing
Undercover reporting from Lauren Southern shows Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) teaching Muslim migrants to lie about trauma they have experienced, and about being Christians in order to gain asylum status in Europe.
Ariel Ricker, the director of Advocates Abroad, which is a group staffed by legal experts who help those seeking asylum, is heard admitting that “it’s all acting,” and is akin to “theatre.”
In one part of the undercover video recorded in Greece, Ricker is heard giving an example of a story she might feed to an asylum seeker.
“In December 2017, in Izmir, Turkey I was threatened for being a Christian because my boss and his friends jumped me when I was leaving my church,” Ricker makes up. “This is the Bible they tried to tear up (referring to a prop they would be given), this is the crucifix I was wearing that they tried to tear, and it made me feel unsafe as a Christian in Turkey.”
This story is well though out, as it includes an event, date, and location. Ricker explains that is necessary in order to ensure asylum is granted, as it is a very specific answer that meets all necessary criteria.
While this story was made up on the spot, the stories generally fed to asylum seekers all fit the same criteria. Ricker even explains how they have a “fill in the blanks” section where fake stories can be made up much easier.
Advocates Abroad are an American 501c3 tax-exempt organization.
The NGO initially opposed the revelations on Twitter and Facebook, claiming the video was “heavily edited” and on top of that, covertly filmed without permission. Hours later, when comments started pouring in, the organisation pulled not only their response, but the group’s Twitter and Facebook pages altogether, which had boasted an over 140,000-strong army of followers. The fact couldn’t go unnoticed by netizens, including journalist Lauren Southern.
Despite the abrupt pull-out from social networks, the pendulum had already started swinging by then, with users expressing their outrage over the “despicable” and shameful policies.
Advocates Abroad was founded in 2016 and at the time helped shuffle migrants into a crisis-hit Greece, which was then struggling to sort things out with a massive national debt by means of a foreign bailout. Interestingly, the organization is based in the city of Honolulu, in the US island state of Hawaii, according to charitynavigator.org.
