Oh, That’s Good, We Won’t Be Getting Gang Members in Obama/Turnbull Refugee Swap! by Peter West
We all know that we can trust our politicians and wonderful organisations, such as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Why, just the name “United Nations,” drips with moral authority, like ethical nectar!
Some shocking racist types – not mentioning any names – feared that there just might be more than a few “bad hombre” (hombre malo) gangsters in the refugees from Mexico and Central America, which was done as part of the Obama/Turnbull deal for the US to take 1,250 refugees from Manus Island and Nauru.
Don’t worry. A UNHCR spokeswoman said “You cannot be a criminal and a refugee at the same time.” (The Australian, February 13, 2017, p. 1) Did you hear that Donny Trump, you got it all wrong.
But then I read; “the refugees swap deal inevitably increases exposure to the world’s most dangerous criminal gangs working to spread their extortion and murder rackets around the world. There were reports this year that the notorious Mara Salvatrucha, or MS13, may have a presence in Sydney, after gang graffiti was found in Bondi, in the city’s east, but there has been no confirmation or evidence of gang activity.” Maybe not: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3160206/The-call-sign-one-LA-s-deadliest-crime-gangs-started-showing-face-tattooed-MS-13-members-REALLY-infiltrated-Bondi-local-graffiti-taggers-just-trying-act-tough.html.
As Con the Fruiter, my favourite ethnic, used to say on the TV show the Comedy Company, “coupla days.” Immigration makes all bad things possible.
