#Minnesota, remember the daycare fraud investigation from Fox 9 that revealed suitcases full of cash were leaving the Minneapolis airport for North Africa and the Middle East? Many wondered just how the daycare fraud is perpetrated. Here's what was learned:
1) The so-called "working" parents will apply for daycare assistance for each child. That amounts to a benefit of roughly $1,000 per month, per child. That means a family with 4 children will receive a daycare benefit of $4,000 per month or $48,000 per year,
paid for by Minnesota taxpayors

2) Another "community" member will open a daycare facility. They will hire the MOTHER of the 4 children as an "employee."

The anti-Migration Pact part of the convoy never made sense to me. From a migration policy perspective I consider the Pact to be a highly conservative document.

Quick thread (9 tweets).

#cdnpoli #cdnimm #MigrationPact #immigration #refugees
1/9 There are two Pacts, one on refugees, and another regulation non-refugee migration. This latter one is the controversial one.

As has been mentioned in media and by elected officials, it’s non-binding. But what’s in it?

#cdnpoli #cdnimm #MigrationPact #immigration #refugees
2/9 First, one its cornerstone principles is national sovereignty. It saya clearly that states have the right to secure their borders and decide their own immigration policies. Not quite the open borders scenario opponents describe it as.

I'm doing an epic thread on the FACTS on the #MedeVacBill to bust all the myths being spread by the #Morrison Government. RT's are so appreciated. Here we go. #auspol #manus #nauru #morrison #dutton
MYTH 1: Two doctors will decide if someone is transferred

FACT 1: Actually 11 doctors decide this incl. an Independent Medical Panel that makes final medical recommendation made up of 9 doctors that incl. Surgeon General of Border Force, Home Affairs & C/w Chief Medical Officer
MYTH 2: The #MedeVacBill will encourage people to seeking #asylum by boat

FACT 2: The bill only applies to people seeking asylum on Manus & Nauru as of 13th Feb 2019 (& children born to them), anyone who arrives thereafter is not eligible for medical evacuation under this bill.

I keep being asked what #Dickens would have made of #Brexit. Charles & Catherine Dickens took their family to live in #Genoa, #Italy for a year (in 1844-1845) – something Brits will no longer be able to do after 29 March. #travel
Before moving to #Italy, Charles #Dickens employed Antonio Gallenga, a political #refugee from #Parma who had migrated to #London, to teach him Italian. In #Brexit Britain, Gallenga would no longer be allowed to work legally.
#Dickens wrote a #travelogue about his year in #Italy. ‘Pictures from Italy’ details the family’s travels through #Europe to their new home in #Genoa, & Dickens' #travels around the country. In #Brexit Britain Dickens would no longer have the right to work in another EU country.

The deadliest sinking of a #ship in recorded #history appears to be the sinking of the 'Wilhelm Gustloff', a ship which for the most part carried #German #refugees. I will translate the text in the below image for you. It says:
'January 30 is boat-#refugee-memorial-day!
..
..
In no accident or (terror-)attack did ever die more people at sea [ I think that that qualification may even be omitted; e.g., 9/11 and Pearl Harbour COMBINED caused far fewer casualties LG,I]; people who only wanted to save their lives and who were actual refugees without
..
..
an alternative to what they were doing. On January 30, 1945 a Soviet submarine sunk the 'Wilhelm Gustloff' with more than 10^4 passengers on board; more than 9000 died in the icy #BalticSea.'

Did you know #Turkey has a #BorderWall of 764-kilometer or (475-mile) among its border with #Syria? The project was finished in June 2018. It is made from Concrete and barb wire @charliekirk11 Build bridges not walls....
Some more pictures of the #BorderWall from #Turkey with #Syria.
This is the 3.1 billion euros of money what Europe gave to #Turkey back in the summer of 2015, to help and keep the #Refugees in Turkey. Meanwhile they keep living in plastic tents and mobile homes instead of building real homes with that money Europe gave them.

A multi-tweet thread on Potus' Oval Office message: 1) Saying there is a national security crisis on the border does a huge disservice to how the US & #Mexico have worked together since 9/11 to ensure our border is not used by terrorists to undermine our common security. 1/7
2) Per Customs and Border Protection data: CBP encountered only 6 #immigrants at Ports of Entry along the US-MEX border in the first half of FY2018 whose names were on a federal government list of known or suspected terrorists. 2/7
3) Overall, 41 people on the Terrorist Screening Database were encountered at the border with #Mexico from October 1, 2017, to March 31, 2018, BUT 35 of them were U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. Six were classified as non-U.S. persons. 3/7

1. My Predictions For 2019:
- #Macron will find it more & more difficult to hold onto power.
- #Merkel won't last until 2021 & her power will further decrease this year quarter by quarter.
- I expect that the #Brexit-Exit-date will be moved (most likely by 12 months).
2. My Predictions For 2019:
- The issues of mass-#migration (few real #refugees) will continue to haunt #Europe, especially #Germany & continue to put pressure on the GER #Groko-government (#CDU/#CSU & #SPD).
#Predictions2019 #Year2019
3. My Predictions For 2019:
- The trend of right parties gaining more power (2018: #Italy, #Austria, #Brazil) will continue: In #France #LePen (#FN) will benefit from #Macron losing power, in #Germany the #AfD will gain further support in Eastern Germany (tbc).

I recently met with a desperate #Venezuela family about to overstay tourist visa. Dad (professional), mom (professional) and kid. Staying w/ relatives & desperate to find a way not to return to political threats, hunger, utter lack of services, including medical care...
Why me? I have #HumanRights background, a university job & #LatinAmerica experience. Basically bupkus in the terrordome politics of desperate people in Trumpland. But I bought them coffee (and a snowman cookie for a young 'un) and listened...
What separates me from them? Increasingly little. They were upper middle class and now scrounge for off the books manual labor. Would they be killed if they returned? Not immediately -- but slowly: no work, no food, no medicine, no hope. They've become #Refugees ...

Earlier today, we were peacefully demonstrating at #BoxingDayTest, MCG to raise awareness about indefinite arbitrary detention of refugees by Australia and to support RISE's eX-detainees' campaign #SanctionAustralia. Victoria Police detained and banned us for 'disturbing peace'.
They took our IDs, and issued a ban to all of us.We question their motives for disrupted our snap action when we support eX-detainees' call for the complete shutdown of all detention centres run by Australia. #BoxingDayTest #INDvAUS #refugees #asylumseekers #NY2019 #Chrismas2018
What made us 'disrupt the peace' when they are the ones disruptive to our peaceful demonstration in solidarity with refugees who are survivors of the abuses they face in Australian-run detention centre.

On a night of political turmoil, it’s such a delight to switch off Brexit and celebrate the work of ⁦@BarHumanRights⁩ and wave farewell to our wonderful Chair ⁦@Kirsty_Brimelow⁩, in conversation with the marvellous Baroness Helena Kennedy QC. #ThankYouKirsty
Lovely words of encouragement and thanks from @Kirsty_Brimelow on behalf of @BarHumanRights to our many partners in the room, to our hardworking Drafting Committee and to our student members, future human rights lawyers to keep checking a cycle of backsliding in #humanrights.
International trial observations, which @BarHumanRights specialise in conducting, throw a spotlight on specific #humanrights issues. @Kirsty_Brimelow talks about our work in Turkey this year, and her own trial observation in Bahrain, & Colombia.

Europe's border is not where you think it is. Here's why:
#humanrights #migration #refugees #IDS2018 see @visionscarto #map @CDB_77
1/5. From 2010 to 2014, the number of refugees and migrants coming to Europe increased from 60,000 to 280,000. The EU decided to crack down on migration by paying other countries to deal with migration for them.
2/5. The EU started making financial agreements with African strongmen and #dictators to ramp up #border security, technical aid and data collection. As a result, other countries are actually controlling the EU border, moving the border further south to #NorthAfrica.

1/ ME, A VERY TIRED #IMMIGRATION LAWYER: this just in, our awful government is doing an illegal thing to #asylum seekers

YOU, A CONCERNED CITIZEN: Like, *how* illegal though

ME:

*pours a Laphroaig double*

okay, let's do this
2/ 1st, this is not exactly an executive order. That's coming later, via "Presidential proclamation"--obvs a totally cool & normal way to make things happen in a democracy

This "final interim rule" skips usual due process and goes into effect NOW, because #MigrantCaravan
3/ N.B.: This doesn't complete cut off all possibility of legal protection for #asylum seekers. "Withholding of removal" (a form of relief I like to call "asylum lite") and protection under the Convention Against Torture remain. That's not to say that this is necessarily OK.

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame—
#TheNewColossus
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
#Refugees #AsylumSeekers
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips.
#AmericasPromise

2. MORE RECENT: "Her catastrophic handling of her mutinous spy chief Hans-Georg #Maaßen — first promoting him, then reversing that decision — suggests she has lost a sense of perspective." #Merkel #EndTimes
3. "Days later, her own party, the conservative #CDU, turned against her. In a secret ballot on Wednesday, the #CDU’s lawmakers ousted #Merkel’s longtime ally Volker #Kauder and picked the lesser-known Ralph #Brinkhaus to lead the party’s parliamentary group." #EndTimes
