SA: 640,000 Asylum Seekers Backlog | Israel IDF: 'One million African refugees headed for Israel'

Reports emanating from the Institute for Race Relations (IRR) indicated that about a fifth of white South Africans had immigrated over the past 10 years with the main reasons given by immigrants were crime and affirmative action, so said Democratic Alliance leader Tony Leon in Cape Town. He accuses the ANC government of being indifferent to the lot of minorities, especially whites, and has expressed hostility to their interest » » » » Canada: Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB): 27 August 2009 ruling: Brandon Huntley

Interior Minister Eli Yishai is in trouble with Israels liberals, for stating that Israel is 'not an asylum state'; by refusing to grant permanent residence to 1,200 children of foreign workers who were born in Israel. He clearly states what the politically correct brigade say, is -- according to them -- better of left unsaid.
"I know it's not popular, but my job is to take care of the citizens of Israel and our nation," Yishai said on Army Radio. "It is no secret that if we continue to abandon the borders and allow the entrance of foreigners into the country and don't - call it what you will - deport, remove or return them to their homelands or if we are too 'good-natured,' as too may of us are, in a few years we will find hundreds and thousands of them here, and that is a threat to the Zionist project in Israel. We will lose our country."

Wow!! When will we find politicians in South Africa elected to the Ministry of Home Affairs with such HONESTY and CANDOUR, and CONCERN FOR SOUTH AFRICAN CITIZENS, AND SOUTH AFRICA!!?

But Israel don't just have one such HONEST politician, then there is Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, who says that the continued battles to expel illegal workers, is a battle against unemployment for Israeli citizens, and if the are not expelled it contributes to rising income gaps amongst Israeli citizens. Hmmm what is South Africa's unemployment rate? Hmmm, does South Africa have rising income gaps?:

“We will continue these actions because the poor of your town come first," said Steinitz. "There will not be a reduction in unemployment and income gaps as long as there are 400,000 African workers competing with low-income Israelis for jobs.”

Over in Germany, Der Spiegel reports that Berlin's former Finance Minister Thilo Sarrazin, from the center-left Social Democrats, has accused the German capital city of too big an 'underclass,' with too many unproductive immigrants and a leftist mentality. His employer, the Bundesbank, has been quick to distance itself from his remarks.
“In Berlin there is a bigger problem than elsewhere of an underclass that does not take part in the normal economic cycle,” he said. “A large number of Arabs and Turks in this city, whose numbers have grown thanks to the wrong policies, have no productive function except selling fruit and vegetables,” he told Lettre International, arguing that the city should be looking to attract highly-qualified immigrants. “I would strike a completely different tone,” Sarrazin said. “Anyone who can do something and strives for something with us is welcome. The rest should go elsewhere.”

I imagine South Africa's Huntley's would be quite tolerant of underclass immigrants whose only productive function is selling fruit and vegetables! But considering the example set by South Africa's Gangster Paradise politicians, judicial officials, police et al; they make themselves productive within the gangster paradise.

Home Affairs needs 30 years to clear backlog

It will take the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) at least 30 years to clear the backlog of asylum seeker applications that has built up in the just over 10 years since government promulgated its Refugee Act in 1998.

At least, it would take 30 years if no further asylum seeker applications were received. As things stand, a further estimated 5 000 new applications are registered every month.

Of these only 10 percent - by the DHA's own reckoning, are favourably considered. The other 90 percent then become eligible to go into the limbo of an appeal process.

The brute statistics, as laid out in the DHA's annual report for 2008/9, are as follows:
  • There are 694 557 asylum seekers in South Africa.
  • 56 716 have been granted refugee status.
  • 105 457 cases are registered on appeal.

What the statistics do not record, however is this: if only 56 716 applications have been successful, and if, as is the case in law, there is provision for all rejected applications to be taken to appeal, then more than half a million asylum seekers are either standing in queues waiting for their cases to be considered or they have simply opted out of the system and chosen to take their chances in the mushrooming population of illegals in South Africa.

Fatima Khan, the head of UCT's law clinic, described the situation in Home Affairs as "organised chaos", noting that the clinic has placed thousands of cases on appeal (as many as 7 000 in a six-month period).

"We have not had a single judgment back since 2006," she said.

As set out in the Refugees Act of 1998, the registration process is nothing if not cumbersome.

Asylum seekers first have to present themselves at specially designated refugee reception centres. Here they register their claims to asylum and are automatically issued with so-called Section 22 permits, officially acknowledging them as asylum seekers.

In step two - and in the past this has taken years, with asylum seekers being required to renew their Section 22 permits every three months - the would-be refugee is given a face-to-face hearing by a Home Affairs official designated as a Refugee Status Determination Officer (RSDO). This official then decides on the validity of the particular application.

If successful at this stage, the applicant is home and dry, eligible for South African residency and refugee identity and travel papers.

If not, the applicant has an automatic right to appeal against the decision, and for the matter to be heard again by an appeal board specially constituted within the DHA for this purpose.

In the initial legislation, a standing committee overseeing and second-guessing the appeal board provided a further guarantee of probity, but this has been discontinued.

At the appeal board level lies the still unresolved nub of the problem - only four DHA officials sit on the board nationwide.

The board deals with only around 50 cases a week, and even dealing with that is failing to write up - as required by law - the judgments arrived at for particular applications.

Tjeck Damstra, acting chairman, acknowledges that the board is behind by 4 000 judgments on the paperwork alone - that is 200 weeks of appeal hearings or just under four years.

Between January and July this year, DHA officials rejected the applications of 42 611 people as unfounded; 14 821 appealed. Only 516 cases were finalised by the board. What happened to the rest is not recorded.

In the face of all this, the DHA's attempts to get to grips with the issue over the past decade have proved largely ineffectual.

Only one Refugee Reception Centre - in Crown Mines, Johannesburg - is functioning at anything like optimal efficiency.

This follows a successfully managed turnaround implemented since 2006 by outside contractors, constitution-writing heavyweights Cyril Ramaphosa and Roelf Meyer's Fever Tree Consulting, in partnership with the US-based AT Kierney.

The consultancy has achieved a noteworthy success in guaranteeing a same day service in respect of the first phase of refugee applications at the refugee centre.

Applicants there are registered as asylum seekers via Section 22 permission and their applications are considered by RSDOs in a single, fluid process - but referring the vast majority of cases to the uncertainties of the appeal system.

And they have stamped out the corruption that exists elsewhere at all levels.

Applicants are routinely forced to pass on money to (outsourced) security guards before they can get a hearing. Refugee status papers can be bought through the security guards and their DHA cronies for an average R1 500.

It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of rands exchange hands monthly at South Africa's Refugee Reception Centres and though DHA periodically acts against corrupt officials -120 in the past year - the problem persists.

In Cape Town, Nyanga refugee offices are being moved to Maitland after businesses in the area around the old office applied to have it closed, largely as a result of the crime and instability it was bringing to the area

For example, a Zimbabwean rasta syndicate reportedly operated a protection racket, where you had to pay so much to be allowed in the queue. Once in, by all accounts, you had to deal with the security guards to make any further progress.

According to Lawyers for Human Rights' Jacob van Gaarderen, corruption and inefficiency in the refugee system has led to people waiting for longer than 10 years for their cases to be decided.

Trying to turn back the tide, the DHA is doing what observers believe is too little too late. An amendment to the Refugees Act was passed in 2008, in part to break the logjam in appeal board hearings.

The amendment act is itself being amended to include further refinements, and has yet to be decisively implemented.

Ecologically-minded liberals should also heed Dr. Salter’s work, for only when Third-World populations are made to bear the consequences of their own reproductive irresponsibility will they, and the world as a whole, establish population policies that protect the environment. Closing off the “safety valve” of Third-World immigration to the West should be as attractive to the sincere left as to the racial right.

IDF: 'One million refugees headed for Israel'

IDF units responsible for guarding Israel's expansive western border with Egypt said Thursday that there are one million would-be infiltrators from Africa waiting to cross the mostly barrier-less border and enter Israel illegally.

The statements were made to a group of MKs from the Knesset's Committee on the Issue of Foreign Workers, who traveled to the South to hear an assessment of the situation from those closest to the problem.

After hearing the briefing by IDF officers, the committee's members called upon the government to immediately initiate the IDF contingency plan that was approved by the Olmert administration, known as "Hourglass." The plan includes a number of steps to be taken to significantly reduce the number of work immigrants who infiltrate across Israel's expansive southern borders.

Committee Chairman Ya'acov Katz called upon the defense establishment to begin immediate work on one of the salient features of the proposed project - the erection of an electronic fence along hundreds of kilometers of isolated borderlands with Egypt. MKs Shai Hermesh (Kadima), Carmel Shama (Likud) and Nitzan Horovitz (Meretz) accompanied Katz on the tour. The cost of the fence is estimated at $1 million per kilometer.

"I salute the residents of the South who are coping with their cities being flooded by immigrants who endanger the stability of their communities," said Katz, who included the mayors of Eilat, Arad and other Negev-area cities in his committee's visit to the Egyptian border and the headquarters of the IDF's Eilat 80th Division, responsible for security along the border.

Eilat Municipality officials estimated that illegal infiltrators now constitute around seven percent of the city's population.

Katz has said that according to the data he has received, between 600 and 1000 people infiltrate across the desert border each month. But not all residents of the South are quite so enthusiastic regarding any cuts to the number of foreign workers in the work force. Even as Katz and his committee toured the Negev, farmers in the isolated Arava Valley put the finishing touches on their plans to launch a massive demonstration this coming Sunday to protest cuts to the number of foreign workers that they can employ on their farms.

The farmers complain that as they are located beyond commuting distance from any major cities, if they are not allowed to import hundreds of foreign workers - mostly from Thailand - they will simply not be able to harvest the produce that makes their farms viable.
