Taxation for Islamization. via U.S. ‘Prepared to Play a Leading Role’ in Absorbing Muslim Refugees From Burma.
(CNSNews.com) – The United States is “prepared to play a leading role” in resettling Muslim refugees from Burma and Bangladesh, known as Rohinga, a State Department spokesperson said on Wednesday.
“We’ve already resettled, I think, more than 1,000 Rohinga, and we said we’re prepared to take a leading role in any (United Nations)-organized effort,” said spokeswoman Marie Harf. “It has to be a multicountry effort. We obviously can’t take this all on ourselves. But we are prepared to play a leading role in this effort.”
Harf spoke one day after the United Nations refugee agency warned that time was running out for thousands of people stranded at sea and urged governments in Southeast Asia “to urgently rescue and disembark these vulnerable people.”
“We estimate that nearly 4,000 people (Rohinga) from Myanmar and Bangladesh remain stranded at sea with dwindling supplies on board,” the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees said. “This includes some 2,000 men, women and children stranded on at least five boats near the Myanmar-Bangladesh coasts for more than 40 days. Unconfirmed reports suggest the number could be higher,” UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards told journalists in Geneva on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, Harf said the U.S. resettlement of 1,000 Rohinga in the current fiscal year “has been an ongoing process.”
“I’m not sure there’s been some new decision,” she said.
“If there are more migrants, would the U.S. be willing to resettle some or provide military assets to help with the moving people around?” a reporter asked Harf.
“Yes, so we’re actively considering our options right now on two pieces of that, though. I’ll start with financial assistance. If the UNHCR and ION indicate the need for additional funds to assist governments to establish things like reception centers and ensure protection screening procedures, we’ll consider those requests. We will encourage other governments to respond quickly and generously, and we’ll be ready to respond to an appeal if and when they make one.
“In terms of resettling, I think the Malaysians and the Indonesians have requested some help resettling people. We’re taking a careful look at the proposal. We’re prepared to take a leading role in any UNHCR-organized multicountry effort to resettle the most vulnerable refugees.
“I’d note that more than 1,000 Rohinga have already been resettled to the U.S. so far this fiscal year. And we’re also providing assistance, this year we provided nearly $109 million in humanitarian assistance for vulnerable Burmese since the beginning, again, of this fiscal year.”
We’ve taken in more than 1,000 Muslim invaders that taxpayers are forced to subsidize AND…AND taxpayers have been robbed of $109 MILLION dollars to fund Muslims over there.
