Rights at Stake

Prohib­ition on the forced return of a refugee is called nonref­oul­ement and is one of the most fundam­ental principles in intern­ational refugee law. This principle is laid out in Article 33 of the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, which says that no state "­shall expel or return ('refo­uler' in French) a refugee in any manner whatsoever to the frontiers of territ­ories where his life or freedom would be threatened on account of his race, religion, nation­ality, membership of a particular social group or political opinio­n."

Asylum in USA

What do we face in America today?

• A government dedicated to importing enough voters to achieve unassa­ilable dominance.
• A government that is out of control, ignoring laws and trampling on the rights of its own citizens in favor of those who have crashed the gate.
• If the Consti­tution was establ­ished to guarantee Americans a limited government what can we say except that at this moment in American History the Consti­tution Has Failed.
