From Gulf News:

DR Congo migrants in limbo as Costa Rica, Panama reject them

Published: 13:28 April 16, 2016 Gulf News
AFP

SAN JOSE: Around 200 African migrants, most of them from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), were in limbo between Costa Rica and Panama on Friday, with both Central American nations refusing them entry.

Costa Rica detained them on Thursday when its northern neighbour Nicaragua turned them back at its border as they sought to cross on their way to try to get to the United States. …

The migrants protested on Friday on the Costa Rican side of the border with Panama to be allowed to continue their journey to America.

From Al-Jazeera:

600 Africans stranded after traveling to Costa Rica

Government warns of a possible looming crisis as it blocks hundreds of people from moving forward en route to US.

John Holman | 21 Apr 2016 11:28 GMT | Latin America, Costa Rica, Migrants

More than 600 people from several African countries are stranded after crossing the Atlantic by boat to Brazil and then passing through Colombia and Panama before getting stuck in Costa Rica en route to the United States.

With more arriving every day – so far from seven countries on the continent – to the small border town of Paso Canoas, both the Red Cross and the government have warned it could turn into a crisis.

The whole journey took the people four months.

“It’s been bad, a lot of police in Colombia, Panama asking for money,” Youleyni, a pregnant woman from the Democratic Republic of Congo, who travelled with her husband, told Al Jazeera.

“We haven’t had money for the bus and had to walk a long way.”

Wilson Camara, identified as a leader of the group, told Al Jazeera they chose the arduous route because it had become very hard to get to Europe.

“There is a problem of terrorism and the borders are closed [in Europe] and so it is difficult. We, Africans, can’t get in. America’s easier to get to and seek refuge,” Camara said. …

The Red Cross said it was trying to help, but was worried about what would happen if the route through Costa Rica became a new mass migration trail.

“They could be changing their route from Europe and going to America and so we could have a humanitarian crisis if we don’t manage this right,” Luis Jimenez, a Red Cross representative in Costa Rica, said.

The Guardian has more:

“This phenomenon has been building for years,” Millman added. “The number of Africans making this trip and asking for asylum every year at the US border is in the thousands, so this 600 is just a traffic jam. You see these kind of agglomerations every now and again.”

Africans typically take planes to Ecuador or Brazil, or occasionally stow away inside cargo ships, before making their way up through several countries in Latin America to the US border, where they claim asylum, Millman said….

Costa Rica has typically taken a laissez-faire attitude to migrants crossing its territory, but may have now decided to shift policy because Nicaragua recently began to send people back to Costa Rican soil.

What’s currently going on is that the leftist presidente of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, out of solidarity with the Castro Brothers, has shut his southern border to keep out the swarm of Cubans trying to get to the American border before America wakes up and reforms its dry foot / wet foot immigration privilege for Cubans.

So, a Camp of the Saints is building up among Africans caught up with the blockade of Cubans, which could set a publicity precedent if the Africans are allowed to proceed en masse.

Last September, I wrote in Taki’s Magazine in a column entitled “Gradually and Then Suddenly” about forward planning in the Smartphone Age for what will likely become an ever growing number of probes against America’s borders, searching for weaknesses that could then be quickly overwhelmed by flash mobs, in the mode of last year’s hegira to Europe.

Could a Camp of the Saints happen in the U.S.? Might we see a sudden rush by land, sea, or air?

It already has happened, multiple times. It could easily happen again, and on a vastly larger scale.

As you’ll recall, the Obama administration set off a race for the border in 2014 by hinting that Central Americans were welcome as long as they mouthed the right words.

… For Europeans, the United Nations’ little-publicized 2015 population forecast is horrifying: The Middle East will grow from 481 million today to 750 million in 2050 and on to 937 million in 2100. Worse, the U.N. sees sub-Saharan Africa growing from 962 million today to 2,132 million in 2050 and on to an apocalyptic 3,935 million in 2100.

…In the past, impoverished South Americans have tended to illegally immigrate to the Southern Cone countries of Argentina, Brazil, and Chile. Brazil, as you know, is the country of the future and always will be. In this century, Brazil seemed to be getting its act together. But that turned out to be just a mask for the traditional orgy of corruption.

… What are the odds that at some point something will go wrong in Latin America that interested parties in the U.S. will try to define as justifying our own Camp of the Saints? Last year, the Obama administration tried to pass off Central American gang violence as justification for letting in unaccompanied youths. Next year, it could be an earthquake, hurricane, civil strife, recession, inflation, sexism, homophobia, or transgender insensitivity.

And for that matter, if the population of Africa keeps doubling—because encouraging Africans to show some restraint and responsibility is racist—what’s to stop a flash mob from coming from Africa? Sure, it sounds implausible today with Africans currently flocking toward Italy, but keep in mind that Australia had boat people coming all the way from Sri Lanka in the Indian Ocean, which is as far from Darwin, Australia, as Dakar, Senegal, is from New York.

This is not a major threat at the moment. But the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.

Our factories have been shipped overseas and most endure Americans squat wages in menial service jobs.

    Since 2011 Haitians have had Temporary Protective Status. Once in the US they can't be forced to leave and are allowed to work.

    Haitians can go to the Dominican Republic, be smuggled to Puerto Rico and only need a driver's license to fly to the US (no passport needed).

    There is a Camp of the Saints in the Bahamas. Undocumented Haitians make up as much as 15 percent of the Bahamian population.

  3. How the hell did these folks manage this trip? They had to cross the Atlantic – granted at its narrowest point, but still a long way across open ocean. Then, assuming they arrived in Northeast Brazil, they had to cross the widest part of that large country, including the most remote part of the continent. (Despite Brazil being a racially mixed nation, French-speaking Africans would stand out there.) They crossed into Colombia, where Africans would stand out even more, basically in the middle of the Amazon jungle.

    Somehow, they made it over the Cordillera to reach the Panama border, which is another remote corner of the world and one infested with various nefarious characters.

    I am in no way suggesting that we should should let them in when I say that I admire their persistence, fortitude and resourcefulness.

    Well, that is, unless they flew they whole way. Obviously, they must have had help, but who? And what kind of help?

    I concur that they must have had help. I believe the current invasion of the southern border is also being financed by unknown entities, though it wouldn't surprise me to learn that it was my tax dollars involved.

    It would probably only take an actual reporter asking some of the migrants who was paying the bill to find out. Alas, that doesn't seem likely to happen.

  6. the leftist presidente of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, out of solidarity with the Castro Brothers, has shut his southern border

    Or perhaps a call from the Obama/Hillary people asking him to hold off the Saint Camping until after the election? Ortega can figure this out himself though. Reagan and Bush I were not too good for leftist central American despots, nor would Trump.

    When Hillary wins, they can flood in and a fawning press will link the events, her win as a reputation of Trump’s racism and an open invitation to Third Worlders. She has already gone far to Obama’s left on immigration, Bernie’s as well.

  9. More than 600 people from several African countries are stranded after crossing the Atlantic by boat to Brazil and then passing through Colombia and Panama before getting stuck in Costa Rica en route to the United States.

    Crossing the Atlantic by boat and heading towards Brazil, Central America and the US is recreating the old slave trade routes. Of course it’s interesting that they are not headed for the Caribbean island states that are currently being run by the descendants of that original Atlantic crossing.

    Some people have suggested that the present day US descendants of slavery are the luckiest Africans in the world. This seems to confirm it.

  10. I sometimes read Spanish language newspapers in Central America to satisfy my curiosity and practice Spanish, and I have found a number of advertisements from American immigration lawyers with primers on what to say when crossing the US border. Claiming discrimination on the basis of domestic violence (women from certain Central American countries can theoretically gain the enormously privileged “refugee” status if they are from areas deemed sexist) has been one tool, but I suspect a lot of Africans will claim discrimination on the basis of LGBT or something along those lines. It could be anything that works. Chinese, for example, used to claim they were forced into abortions, and I’ll bet good money this had something to do with the Chinese birth tourism phenomenon that’s still a problem today. Expect the lawyers to think something up so that they can get more clients (paid for by you, the taxpayer) and keep the game going.

    We Americans have to figure out some way to control our own white-collar criminals, but lately we’ve been doing a terrible job of bringing them to heel. Maybe we have too many people in prison, but we certainly don’t have enough lawyers there.

    Singapore's fertility rate (1.29 children per woman) is lower than Japan's. I was surprised to learn that 20 percent of Singapore's population are immigrants, to compensate for the low birth rate. Mainly wealthy or poor with lots from China and India.

    Half of the citizens would leave Singapore if they could. Life isn't that pleasant for the middle class, expensive housing, almost impossible to own a car. Poor immigrants live like prisoners and the Indians had a riot in 2013. The first riot in Singapore in about 40 years.

  27. Camp of the Saints is inevitable. Get ready for it. This story about a cuckservative evangelical says it all:

    One of the central themes of Christianity is, after all, that God, through His Son, is calling people from every tongue, tribe and nation. Grasping diversity will make the world stronger as we marvel at God’s creative genius on display through His people’s varying pigments, personalities and proficiencies. Our differences are cause for celebration, not scorn.

    The Scriptures testify that God has always pleaded for the protection of his most helpless and needy image-bearers. Another prevalent theme of the Bible is that God adopts believers into his own family. When we adopt, we are echoing his own compassionate work, giving the world a glimpse of the truth and beauty of the gospel.

    There is something beautiful and enriching being the only white face sitting and chatting with some of my African-American friends as my son gets his hair cut on a Saturday morning. There is also something wonderful in the relationship that is built as my wife asks a black friend on Facebook how to care for our little biracial daughter’s hair. The beauty of a multi-ethnic family is found there, in the fact that the differences are the very thing that make ours richer and fuller. It forces you to think in a new way about the way you think, speak, act and live.

    Shmuley Boteach and other low rent “Men with Gold Chains” hustlers may do some limited damage with their short-sighted hustler’s greed, but God Save Us from the Godly.

    It is cuckservatives like Aaron Halbert who do the most damage, out of sincere Christian devotion. You can’t take issue with what Halbert says about Christianity, like the flip side of ISIS that is Christianity.

    The idea that somehow, America could survive or that we could recreate the near Utopia of middle class White Suburban California that Steve and I both remember is a false hope. It will NEVER happen. Men like Aaron Halbert and his wife will make sure it fails. In a sea of Africans and Muslims. It is rather our duty to survive as individuals and a culture; knowing that Europe is going to be innundated too as there are far too many Christians there also. There is no place to run to — the fatal tragic flaw of White people is Christianity. I’m beginning to see Nietsche’s point about a slave religion.

    To be a Christian is to destroy White society in service of the Gospel. No matter that was not what Christianity was 100, or 200 years ago, that is what it is now. Just as Islam is the Caliphate and ISIS, no matter than Ibn Khaldun wrote poetry extolling wine in the Middle Ages.

    We are in a slasher movie that will never end. Jason, Freddy, the Aliens, Predator, Mike Myers, etc. will just keep coming. It is time to put aside false hopes and focus on individual and collective survival, knowing no place on earth will be White majority or even close to it and every place will be anti-White to an extreme degree. We can thank good Christian men like Aaron for that too.

    Given their persistence and hardiness, one might be intrigued by the natural-selection effect these people might have on the black population in the Americas as they mix in ... do we need to look again at the so-called "killer bees" (also introduced from Africa into the US via South America) to have an insight into what we might be facing?

    If they are so full of fortitude and resourcefulness they could fix the home country.

  31. I have one solution, that I would like feedback on: If these nations in Africa are so terrible that the majority populations want to just empty out and vacate the nation, and it would be inhumane to ask Africans to live in their homelands, these failed nations should be making the primary compromises and sacrifices, not Europe or US or Australia.

    Specifically, convert parts of those failed African nations into globalized nation states with no majority rule democracy, but rather right of exit.

    If Africans can vote on a ballot, they vote for nations that are inhumane to live in. If Africans vote with their feet, they prefer a more European or Western nation. Let the global capitalist types build global nation state options in Africa and let Africans vote with their feet if they want to live there. This is the most win-win happy solution I can imagine. In the meantime, pump the brakes on mass migration, that will just be a massive disaster for everyone.

    Also, voting for leaders and technocrats may be better than various monarch or dictatorships, but even in USA and Europe, it’s highly flawed. This is an opportunity to try something better that can make everyone’s lives better.

    Yes, I know there are lots of blacks in Colombia, but they are concentrated along the Pacific coast. The interior has fewer. However, not zero, so … fair point.

    What's wrong with that? We have been told forever that sex and race are just social constructs, so why not age? If I "identify" as a woman, I can use the women's room. So if I identify as 17 years old, why can't I be a high school student?

    Of course the US Navy is busy playing idiotic games in the Baltic and the South China Sea. Bringing the ships back to the Western Hemisphere to guard our borders is unthinkable thanks to the NeoCons.

    We should be sinking every one of these invaders.

    And we’re now arming Salafist rebels in Syria with MANPADS to shoot down Syrian and Russian aircraft. I’m sure this won’t turn into another clusterfuck.

    How come we didn't see a Camp of the Saints event after the Haitian earthquake? That was as good an excuse as any for it to happen.

    Since 2011 Haitians have had Temporary Protective Status. Once in the US they can’t be forced to leave and are allowed to work.

    Haitians can go to the Dominican Republic, be smuggled to Puerto Rico and only need a driver’s license to fly to the US (no passport needed).

    There is a Camp of the Saints in the Bahamas. Undocumented Haitians make up as much as 15 percent of the Bahamian population.

  37. Steve, your “world’s most important graph” is optimistic. According to a Scientific American article two months back, Africa’s current rate of population growth implies not four billion Africans by 2100 but 16 billion. The authors assure us that that could never happen, but whatever it is that’s going to slow things down, they’re vague on. As liberals, they’re full of hope for education and “women’s empowerment” of course.

    There's a lot of NGOs involved in this behind the scenes and given the gradual winding down of the global economy ships are prob cheap right now. So my guess is someone like Soros or the UN chartered a ship.

    Singapore’s fertility rate (1.29 children per woman) is lower than Japan’s. I was surprised to learn that 20 percent of Singapore’s population are immigrants, to compensate for the low birth rate. Mainly wealthy or poor with lots from China and India.

    Half of the citizens would leave Singapore if they could. Life isn’t that pleasant for the middle class, expensive housing, almost impossible to own a car. Poor immigrants live like prisoners and the Indians had a riot in 2013. The first riot in Singapore in about 40 years.

    At least their immigrants are mostly from China, going to a mostly Chinese polity. Sure, there might have been a cultural shift in all those years of initial separation, but there shouldn't be any problems if you pick your immigrants wisely. Singapore, while being diverse, is still the only majority Chinese nations in the SE Asia. They never thanked the British properly for that.

    I've always wondered why these small time, but successful nations, don't seek to expand their borders, not just at the expense of their neighbors, but also throughout the world. Like the old Venetians. Singapore could do it.

    What would it mean for them to grab or buy Zanzibar, for instance? It would quadruple Singapore's landmass over night and place them closer to strategic opportunities for trade. It wouldn't be the same as having a contiguous territory, but still.

    PS If you remove Gypsies from the equation, the already small TFR of some Eastern European nations, mine included, are lower than that of Japan or China.

    Per Derbyshire, we got about 58,000 new “Americans” in the first year and a half after the earthquake, and those are just the ones the semi-competent government knows about. I’m sure there are more by now.

  50. I was delighted to learn that one of the factions in the ongoing civil war in Yemen attacked and sacked our embassy there forcing the State Department to withdraw its personnel. Hallelujah I thought. No visas for the extended family of some corrupt convenience store owner in Mississippi. No cousin bride for a used ( stolen?) car dealer in New Jersey. At least for awhile.

    It is astonishing to learn how much money these ‘destitute’ people from Somalia, Sudan etc. can put together to undertake these journeys. Surveys show that half of the people in the US cannot come up with $500 for a ER visit or car repair yet, somehow, a savage from Subsaharan Africa can put together thousands of dollars to head off for the West.

  51. @SteveO
    How the hell did these folks manage this trip? They had to cross the Atlantic - granted at its narrowest point, but still a long way across open ocean. Then, assuming they arrived in Northeast Brazil, they had to cross the widest part of that large country, including the most remote part of the continent. (Despite Brazil being a racially mixed nation, French-speaking Africans would stand out there.) They crossed into Colombia, where Africans would stand out even more, basically in the middle of the Amazon jungle.

    Somehow, they made it over the Cordillera to reach the Panama border, which is another remote corner of the world and one infested with various nefarious characters.

    I am in no way suggesting that we should should let them in when I say that I admire their persistence, fortitude and resourcefulness.

    Well, that is, unless they flew they whole way. Obviously, they must have had help, but who? And what kind of help?

    An odyssey like this calls for some sort of explanation.

    I concur that they must have had help. I believe the current invasion of the southern border is also being financed by unknown entities, though it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that it was my tax dollars involved.

    It would probably only take an actual reporter asking some of the migrants who was paying the bill to find out. Alas, that doesn’t seem likely to happen.

    So the U.S government thinks people from The Congo are a better model than Northern European Americans?

    Your question is your answer: Drop ‘So” and end with a period instead of question mark, then substitute “people from The Congo are” with “anyone else is”.
