Last weekend, I reported on all the Africans who are suddenly showing up on the Mexican border, demanding to be let it. Whatever happened to them, anyway?

From channel KENS 5 in San Antonio:

‘Parle vous français?’ City searches for French speakers as hundreds of Congolese asylum-seekers head to SA

“When we called Border Patrol to confirm, they said yea another 2-300 from the Congo and Angola will be coming to San Antonio,'” Dr. Collen Bridger said.

Author: Jaleesa Irizarry
Published: 6:16 PM CDT June 6, 2019

Roughly 350 migrants from the Congo are expected to arrive in San Antonio in the coming days leaving the city scrambling for French-speaking volunteers.

“We didn’t get a heads up,” Interim Assistant City Manager Dr. Collen Bridger told KEN 5 on Thursday.

Bridger said the Congolese migrants began to arrive in town on Tuesday. They told Migrant Resource Center workers, they traveled with a group of about 350 migrants through Ecuador to the southern border.

“When we called Border Patrol to confirm, they said, ‘yea another 200 to 300 from the Congo and Angola will be coming to San Antonio,'” Bridger said.

They may not have figured out yet the Angolans are likely to speak Portuguese. Eventually, they may be flying in specialists in native African languages.

On Wednesday alone the migrant center saw a total of 450 people, Spanish and French speaking, during the day and housed 375 of them at Travis Park Church at night.

The city opened up the Frank Garrett Center to house the Congolese migrants for the weekend, but after that, they’re not sure where they’ll house them especially since they don’t know how long some of them will be here.

“The plan was 350 of them would travel from San Antonio to Portland. When we reached out to Portland Maine they said, ‘Please don’t send us any more. We’re already stretched way beyond our capacity,” Bridger said.

“So we’re working with them [the migrants] now to identify other cities throughout the United States where they can go and begin their asylum seeking process.”

Higgs said they’re spending thousands of dollars a week on bus tickets for many of these migrants Spanish and French-speaking to make it to their final destination.

“We’re looking at roughly $14,000 a week on bus tickets alone,” Higgs said.

    The iSteve-isation of America continues …

    Minneapolis schools need to put, and keep, the best teachers in the most challenged classrooms

    Students most in need of consistent, caring teachers are often in classrooms with the highest turnover rates.
    By Nafeesah Muhammad

    Minneapolis Star-Tribune JUNE 6, 2019 — 6:02PM

    Despite many teachers’ best efforts, Minneapolis’ inequitable education system creates schools that provide students with drastically different opportunities, often depending on their ZIP code or race. Only 23% of African-American students were proficient in reading on the state exam.

    I had hoped that the district’s recent plan to correct this injustice would offer some hope for my students in the coming years. I was sorely disappointed.

    Even though teachers are the No. 1 in-school factor that determines the prospects for a student’s future, the district’s plan includes nothing to ensure that every student has access to a diverse and effective set of educators. But I am clinging to some hope. The district still has the opportunity to include measures to attract and retain educators in high-poverty schools in the final plan.

    All too often, students most in need of a consistent group of caring and effective teachers attend schools that are plagued by high turnover rates. For example, last year when a beloved colleague at my school left, her students joined my class. Students who had previously thrived academically and socially in her English class brought frustration, anger and a lack of trust into my classroom because they felt abandoned.

    It made for a difficult transition, not only for those students but also for the students I had been teaching. I gave it my all and we eventually moved into a better place. As a teacher with five years of experience, this was one of the biggest challenges I have faced in my career. I can only imagine the damage to students’ learning if this had happened to an early career educator — people who disproportionately teach in our high-needs schools.

    Without making targeted investments to attract, develop, and retain excellent teachers in high-poverty schools, we will not reach the district’s academic goals. The plan must include increased compensation for excellent teachers who work in high-poverty schools, coupled with intentional support. Furthermore, district leadership must create exciting leadership opportunities by implementing hybrid roles in which teachers teach part-time coaching and developing their colleagues. These roles have proven to retain exceptional teachers while expanding their impact in their schools.

    Going forward, I hope the district and union leadership, along with the school board directors, will raise and seek to answer questions such as, “How do we get our most experienced and effective educators in front of the students who need them most? How do we stem the flow of high-potential new teachers leaving our hardest-to-staff schools? What incentives and career opportunities can we provide to ensure equity in staffing in our district?”

    If they cannot answer those questions, they cannot truly make change in this district for the students who most need it. This will be just another plan that doesn’t meet the needs of our kids.

    Under what law is this under? Is it some sort of treaty we signed, and if so, can’t we just back out like we do with other agreements? Of is it some law that needs the whole Congress to act to repeal it?

    This is getting more than ridiculous. The whole world will end up claiming asylum, and our hands will be tied. I’ve heard people say the Constitution is not a suicide pact when referencing certain court decisions that appeared to put limits on certain rights. Well asylum laws should not be a suicide pact either.

    I’m pretty sure it’s some sort of UN agreement on refugees (that we agreed to at the time because who figured the blacks and browns from Africa would show up here?) but I think refugees are supposed to stop in the first “safe” country they enter and claim asylum there. So unless we’re going to accuse Mexico of genociding Africans…

    If we are not accepting Mexicans as political refugees, then we shouldn’t accept “others” from Mexico as political refugees – they’re coming for the gibs, plain and simple.

    If we’re not going to just toss them back into Mexico, then we should force march them to the Canadian border because given black murder rates in the US and all the evil guns floating around and all the evil white racist MAGA repressors marauding the night streets, they are not “safe” here.

    I live in Vegas. Skid row Vegas is the saddest, most despairing phenomenon I have ever witnessed. It’s not as large in extent as that of LA or San Francisco, but there seems to be a fall-off-the-last-rung-of-the-ladder spirit in the air down there, impossible for me to put into words but overwhelming when experienced. At least in LA one has Santa Monica to retreat to, and San Francisco is a gorgeous city. But skid row Vegas is crammed into a decaying, abandoned, vacant portion of the city, in the shadows of the old down town. Filth, feces, syringes, bottle caps, booze, cigarettes, broken concrete, stray dogs, mumbling, shouting, cursing, fisticuff flare ups, dozing in the shadows, howling at the merciless sun, shabby tents, shabbier unfortunates, tatoos, American skinnies. A scene of hallucinatory, dribbling madness. They were all once, somebody’s son and daughter. My guess is that Pine Ridge Indian reservation is worse, but I’ve seen enough, don’t want to see that.

    And what could possibly go wrong with that?

    How did HIV cross from chimps to humans?
    The most commonly accepted theory is that of the ‘hunter’. In this scenario, SIVcpz was transferred to humans as a result of chimps being killed and eaten, or their blood getting into cuts or wounds on people in the course of hunting.5 Normally, the hunter’s body would have fought off SIV, but on a few occasions the virus adapted itself within its new human host and became HIV-1.

    There are four main groups of HIV strains (M, N, O and P), each with a slightly different genetic make-up. This supports the hunter theory because every time SIV passed from a chimpanzee to a human, it would have developed in a slightly different way within the human body, and produced a slightly different strain. This explains why there is more than one strain of HIV-1.6

    The most studied strain of HIV is HIV-1 Group M, which is the strain that has spread throughout the world and is responsible for the vast majority of HIV infections today.

    How did HIV-2 get passed to humans?
    HIV-2 comes from SIVsmm in sooty mangabey monkeys rather than chimpanzees.7 The crossover to humans is believed to have happened in a similar way (through the butchering and consumption of monkey meat).

    It is far rarer, and less infectious than HIV-1. As a result, it infects far fewer people, and is mainly found in a few countries in West Africa like Mali, Mauritania, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.8

    When and where did HIV start in humans?
    Studies of some of the earliest known samples of HIV provide clues about when it first appeared in humans and how it evolved. The first verified case of HIV is from a blood sample taken in 1959 from a man living in what is now Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The sample was retrospectively analysed and HIV detected. There are numerous earlier cases where patterns of deaths from common opportunistic infections, now known to be AIDS-defining, suggest that HIV was the cause, but this is the earliest incident where a blood sample can verify infection.9

  32. Native San Antonian here.
    The only ray of hope regarding the Travis Park Church (which has been a pain in the ass to most of us for the last 30 years or so) is that they recently announced their interest in beginning the process of disaffiliating themselves from their parent organization, the United Methodist Church (over the mothership’s refusal to cave in to certain LGBT demands…of course). Since most local church property is held in trust with the parent organization, disaffiliation would likely violate their trust agreement and (hopefully) we can be rid of this perennial pain in the ass once and for all.

    It only really matters if there is a law passed by Congress. Many “treaties” are signed by the President but only have effect if the current President wants to enforce it. If the treaty is passed by Congress, then it becomes a law.

    With regard to asylum, here is the law that creates a giant hole in our system when a Camp of Saints seeks asylum in numbers that overwhelm the system.

    It is a really stupid law anyway. The tens of millions of Muslims in Burma, China, Thailand, and the Philippines all can make a decent case for actual religious persecution, but none should be allowed to immigrate to the USA.

    In the current media environment, we cannot do that.

    The corporate media is resolutely hostile to the nationalist cause, and will paint us in the worst possible light, while ignoring the costs of mass immigration.

    Conservatives have never come up with a grassroots answer to the media problem. They instead focus on consumerist solutions (Fox News, Breitbart, Talk Radio, selling books). When conservative leaning Sinclair does anything controversial, it faces a shitstorm of leftist activism.

    M. Cernovich has probably gone the farthest with a solution, trying to get people fired by digging up their past.

    Well yeah, but most of the actual largest cities aside from Rio and SP happen to be in the N/NE, such as Fortaleza, Recife, and Salvador, and are pretty much pissholes. SP, as you say, isn’t very pleasant either. I’m sure that the second-tier cities close to Argentina are more civilized. How could they not be? I was fairly shocked by Salvador, mainly because I’d heard multiple people brag about it. The only kind thing I could say is that it’s better than Recife.

    There are people in this forum who maintain that the USA will somehow achieve a ‘soft landing’ and end up like Brasil rather than South Africa. My only point is that that won’t be such a soft landing. But then, as you state–everything’s relative. Leblon is tolerable, for example. Relatively speaking.

In any case it should not be difficult to investigate this, as a commercial flight leaves a paper trail (unlike the Africans crossing the Sahara and then the Mediterranean into Europe by foot and by makeshift boats).

    Mexico has no incentive to expand ‘Remain in Mexico’ (whatever that is) — it is to their advantage that these migrants travel on to the US — the US must pressure Mexico to conclude a ‘safe third county’ agreement, eg via these trade talks — there are enough sticks and carrots to accomplish this — but at this point it would be no surprise if a buffoon like Trump and his inept, clownish administration failed to do so, despite its extreme importance.

    Another person in that April Washington Post was from the Cameroons, said that he was forced to flee because of a crackdown against Anglophones. He said that he fled to Nigeria, then to Turkey and then onward to Panama and then he went North to the US border.

    Today it typically takes 3 years for an asylum seeker to get his day in court. Once someone applies for asylum they are granted legal status until their court date, and are thus can legally work in the US and are granted a social security number. Many asylum seekers never even bother to appear in court, knowing they will most likely be denied asylum status.

    Thus when an illegal alien is apprehended in the US they are advised to immediately apply for asylum and thus become a temporary legal resident while waiting for their hearing in 3 years. This gives them plenty of time to have an anchor baby , or find a spouse who has a green card.
    If we build the wall this will create a bottle neck at the border. Thus if 9,000 appear at the border each day asking for asylum we could force them to wait in Mexico while we decide who qualifies for a hearing. If they are applying for asylum from Mexico we could force Mexico to accept these refugees, as they are not seeking asylum from Mexico and are required to apply for asylum in the First Nation which grants them entrance , according to UN protocols. Since Mexico has welcomed most of these migrants they are responsible for accepting their asylum claims and can deny them residency and deport them back to Central America or Africa and Asia.

    When the Japanese wanted to go to China, Australia, the Philippines, Hawai’i, etc. they were stopped rather…explosively.

    When the French and, later, the Germans, wanted to go to Russia, they were stopped.

    The Moslem hordes wanting to go into (and beyond) Vienna were stopped by the Poles.

    The Persians once wanted to go into Hellas, but the Spartans and Athenians and their allies put a stop to that.

    Nothing in all history is more common than people trying to go where they want and being stopped, except maybe people going where they want and not being stopped – the only thing separating the two outcomes is the quantity and quality of the parties doing the going and the stopping.

    There’s no particular shame in the outcomes mentioned here, or any number of others (the U.S.A.’s going into the C.S.A., the Macedonians’ going into Persia, the Romans’ going into Gaul…).

    What is shameful, and unprecedented in human history, is people going where they want, not to the mere detriment, but to the destruction of the peoples already there, and being ushered in with smiling, cheery lunacy by those peoples – a shame trebled by the unprecedented ease with which the going could be stopped.

    It can go the other way. The Anglicans lost most of their property and funds to the Episcoglobohomopalians when the former put their foot down about the latter’s nonsense by separating. What matters is whether the bad guys are the larger organisation or the smaller, ostensibly rebelling lot – the latter most often lose – a good thing perhaps in Kansas City and San Antonio, but a bad thing for the Anglican Communion and many, many other such examples (probably the majority, because GloboHomo is now doctrinaire in most churches, whether explicitly or implicitly).

    Of course the Darien Gap is (practically) impassable. I don’t know if you’re trying to be clever or entering the discussion in good faith, so I’ll not assume sarcasm.

    Obviously they would have taken the ferry – from Ecuador to Costa Rica or from Panama to Colombia (there are a few other less common routes but those are the primary options). In any event, both choices leave one to – wait for it – trek overland through the most dangerous nations on the planet – Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Honduras.

    Can one travel around those, also, by sea? Sure, but that would have fuck-all to do with the Darien Gap (which is in the Isthmus of Panama) and be no ferry-ride, but a true travel via ship.

    When I drive around Puget Sound, I (and most others) write – quite correctly – of driving around Puget Sound, not sailing around it, notwithstanding the many ferries I use.

    I admit a truly niggling take on my point could mean the ferry to avoid the Darien Gap would disqualify the trip as an overland trek – but you’d have to be a real niggler to take that position.

    Right. Trump, it turns out, is a bag of horse-shit comparable to that cat we all know who boasts about how he will kick Billy’s ass after school but, when Billy shows up rarin’ to go, sniggers and mumbles about how he isn’t going to waste his time and energy proving his obvious mettle. Or he is like the fellow at the office who rants about how much he’s had it with the boss and won’t stand for it anymore, you’ll see! – but thr moment the boss walks in to the room he is the first guy to mewl “Good morning, Mr. Pelosi!”

    We needed Aurelius.

    We got Honorius.

    Not Off-Topic At All, Actually:

    Mexinchifornia has just agreed to spend some fourteen billion dollars of money on free medical care for illegal aliens.

    The police department of San Francisco has pasted GloboHomo livery on one of its cruisers and matching patches on their uniforms:

    Surely the criminal cholos are as intimidated as are the world’s terrorists and invaders by the barren hens in charge of Europe’s ministries of defence….

    There is something – stupidity, arrogance, or some combination thereof – about speakers of Spanish that precludes their even trying to learn rudimentary aspects of any other language. They’ve no curiosity or motivation or ability about any other languages.

    The phenomenon is even more pronounced – because compounded with their racism – among the mystery-meat in America than among Spaniards. It’s not like the pride of the French – who protect their language in the motherland and Quebec with laws dictating its use and preservation, or even the Chinese, who prefer their languages and fiercely work to teach them to their children even if they invade some other nation. Both the French and the Chinese will learn other languages when it benefits them, and even if they do not they revognise the inevitable prerogative that those other languages will be spoken in places controlled by their speakers: the Chinaman expects English to be spoken in Australia and realises he must learn English to thrive in Australia or even at just doing business with Australian firms.

    Not so with the speaker of Spanish. He is an especially annoying invader because, as you say, no matter the consequences to him, he stalwartly clings to the stance taken by Slim Shady in 1998….

    In the year 30000, along with whatever else Roseanne and Conan have foreseen, everyone will speak Chinese (the overlord ant people) or bad Spanish (the gully-dwarf helots).

    I didn’t know if he was referring to istevefan or to Steve. Eah’s criticism was directed at Steve. HammerJack gave someone praise in opposition to that criticism. The most intuitive interpretation is that he was defending Steve by praising him.

    If the praise was of istevefan (and I agree with you it probably was), arguably it supports eah’s criticism of Steve. If someone as sensible and perspicacious as istevefan is ignorant of the basic facts of a major immigration issue we have all been following with concern for months, perhaps it does point to a gap in Steve’s journalistic approach.

    Funny how Portland’s (and especially Lewiston’s) official line on its Somali imports was that they were rejuvenating an old tired city. Maybe what that really meant was that the Somalis constituted a full-employment guarantee for goodwhite city employees. So after a certain point, there’s no further incentive to import Somalis.

    By the way, google “refugees Lewiston” and most of the hits are about the downside. This is pretty amazing, considering Google’s policized search algorithm. But I guess positive articles really are that scarce now (and of course Google gives preference to recent articles).

    How is letting invaders loose in any way compatible with the rule of law?

    We don’t have rule of law, we have rule of lawyers. The solution to these issues not likely to be found within the confines of our current system.

    This is getting more than ridiculous. The whole world will end up claiming asylum, and our hands will be tied. I’ve heard people say the Constitution is not a suicide pact when referencing certain court decisions that appeared to put limits on certain rights. Well asylum laws should not be a suicide pact either.

    Yes, and … where’s Trump?

    The magnitude of this crisis is obvious and easy to explain.

    Trump can grab the bully pulpit for a televised address to the nation. That address need not go beyond 10 minutes and can be done without Trump mentioning himself once.

    — People are showing up at the border claiming asylum–because their nation sucks–and gaining entry. Once in–our dentention system flooded–they are often released into the US to await hearing, but simply disappear. Once in the US Democrat/leftist judges make it close to impossible for people to actually be deported–even frauds, even convicted criminals. Once they’ve wiggled their way in–they are in.

    — Most people in the world live in nations that are much poorer and less free than the US. Their ancestors did not do as good a job creating a free and prosperous nation as our ancestors. If they want such freedom and prosperity for themselves and their posterity, they should stay home and work for it, fight for it, maybe die for it. (As our ancestors did for us.)

    — If all the people from these shithole nations are allowed to come to the US and claim asylum because their nation is a shithole … then the US will quickly fill up with more and more people until the US itself is a crowded, hideous, shithole nation as well and no one else wants to come.

    — Our children, grandchildren, our descendants are having their birthright to America–their right to live in a free and prosperous nation that their ancestors built–stolen right now. Unless we stop this theft.

    Finally
    — As President my most solemn duty is to protect and defend the United States. I’m not going to let our children’s, our posterity’s, birthright be stolen.

    We will accept no more refugees, and no more asylum claims. I’m ordering the border patrol not to accept anyone for asylum. All illegal entrants captured, will be immediately deported to their own nation. Those very few people with a legitimate asylum claim can make the much shorter trip the US embassy in their own nation. Anyone trying to break into our national home will be treated as the invader they are.

    Americans are the owners of the American nation. We alone have the right to benefit from–and the duty to maintain–the freedom and prosperity that our ancestors have built, and to pass that American birthright of freedom and prosperity on to our children.

    Supremely well said, Autochthon. Unprecented and shameful absolutely nails it. Never before has invasion and replacement not been stopped by a people who so easily could.

    I’m sorry, I thought you were just trolling me.

    So here’s my serious answer: No, and not even if we accept the dubious premise that colonialism brought a net harm to the natives. If reparations are in order then on grounds of both justice and economic efficiency, it would be better to give the former colonizers the option of just writing a check rather than having their countries be destroyed.
