George Soros and The Irish Refugee Sponsorship Initiative

Charlie
politics

 
The Irish Refugee Sponsorship Initiative is part of The Global Refugee Sponsorship Initiative which is .. " a joint initiative led by the Government of Canada; the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) , the Open Society Foundations; the Giustra Foundation; and the University of Ottawa " ... [link]
 

It was announced in September 2016 following the UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants 2016, and officially launched in December 2016 in Ottawa, Canada.

Ireland signed up to the initiative through Minister for Justice Charles Flanagan and David Stanton, Minister of State for Immigration .
 
Only 4 Other Countries have enrolled in the programme so far .. Argentina , New zealand , the UK and its founder Canada . 

As part of our membership , Ireland has agreed that in addition to our existing intake of refugees and asylum seekers (through the refugee protection programme and asylum system) , a new system would be established which will be led by the private sector , various NGOs and Lobbiests .

Under the new system , private organisations or sponsors apply to the government to bring in migrants/refugees from various migrant camps in Europe , Africa or the Middle East . The arrivals bypass the asylum process and are given direct housing , employment and schooling by their sponsors .
 
For example , The Lismore Welcome Project in Co Waterford which has been working with asylum seekers at the Clonea Strand Hotel since 2016 recently applied to the programme to bring in extra people from camps in Jordan / Lebanon and resettle them directly in Lismore .
 
On Monday , the Lismore project held a public meeting at which Minister for State David Stanton  explained that .. "if each community around the country does this we can actually have 4,000 people here fairly soon and spread around the country"

Statistics from the Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner show that between 20/11/2000 and 31/12/2016 ,  there were 76,547 asylum applications processed in Ireland making Ireland one the highest intakers of asylum seekers per head of population of any country in the  EU . [link ]
 
At the end of October 2018, there were 37 Asylum Accomodation Centres spread accross 17 Counties accomoding 5,848 asylum seekers . There were a further 5 accommodation centres established as part of the Irish Refugee Protection Programme . [link ]
 
The Open Society Foundation , which is part funding the new government initiative , is a philanthropic organisation funded by billionaire George Soros . In 2016 it was found to have given illegal donations to Amnesty International to campaign for abortion in Ireland which breached the1997 Electoral Act , which prohibits foreign donations from third party organisations for "political purposes" . In November 2017 , the Standards in Public Office Commission ordered Amnesty to return the donation to the open society foundation .

If people in the lismore project are so humane , why dont they sponsor a homeless family or someone sleeping rough on the cold wet streets . why dont they apply to government to house a homeless family or give a Job to a homeless man. instead they want to make the problem worse for locals by using up all the housing stock on people who are happy enough where they are and just want to go home to their families .
^
We've no houses , no hospital beds , we've 10,000 homeless , we're bringing in 10,000 foreign nationals every month , now this , the country is going to grind to a complete stop , its not going to be nice for anyone to live in .

Hello! IRISH REFUGEES ? There is no such thing. They are Foreigners! How does another Foreigner,SOROS, get permission to bypass the asylum process? Is it just because he's wealthy? No, it's because the present government gave him permission.Oh,we can make a mockery of any laws/rules/treaty's,and not only by a Country,but a United Nations Body. So we could all then dump UN,EU AGREEMENTS, great lets do it.If they can so can we. Private organizations,sponsors, then give direct provision in housing, jobs,schooling,health etc.etc. So this bypasses Laws for the labor market,giving jobs to FOREIGNERS OVER CITIZENS,and they haven't even landed on IRISH SOIL? Surely there is a legal argument/challenge to this RACIST OPPRESSION, WHEN DOES THIS ORWELLIAN CRUSADE END ?
The World looked on for over 800yrs before through IRISH GENOCIDE and now they are doing it again through an International Global Body,The UN. I KNOW WHAT ANY IRISH PATRIOT WOULD DO IF IN GOVT. FOR JUST ONE DAY....get rid of all this scum

the asylum industry is big business , people like Pat Cox are making a fortune , Pat Cox is a director of a company called Third Age . In 2017 , The Company had a total income of 2,189,104 . The company uses the elderly to give Free English classes to migrants through a programme called failte isteach , its done under the pretence that its helping the elderly by giving them something to do but its about making some people a lot of money and at the same time making sure nobody is ever deported by building up bonds,the immigrant council of ireland is involved , it really is abusing elderly people's good nature, In 2017 , The Company had a total income of 2,189,104 and used the elderly to give 74,000 hours of free english classes to migrants .
^
They told locals back in 2015 that the Clonea Strand Hotel was only for 6 months , its 4 years later and its still being used for asylum accomodation . Such a pity , So many holidaymakers would love to visit clonea and use the hotel facilities
^
I heard now they are thinking of also opening the grand hotel in Tramore for asylum seekers . At this rate there will be nowhere to holiday . the governments own statistics show 92% are not even refugees . so whats is all about ?
^
I agree aisling , we need to get our house in order first , fix the health service , house the homeless etc before thinking about bringing in even more people into a broken system thats falling apart . As others have already said , the war in syria is over now and we should be helping them to return home .
^
I find it very strange that people like The Lismore Welcome Project wont do anything to help homeless people in waterford but as soon as you mention to them that the person is not irish , they will do everything to help . Sounds like racism to me .

transgender therapy is much more damaging than conversion therapy . with trans therapy you have bodily mutilation , irreversible medication to stop the natural development of the body and serious side effects from drugs such as puberty blockers . why dont they ban transgender therapy .

so it will be legal for children to have double mastectomy to change gender but illegal for therapy to discourage this . transgender therapy is barbaric and yet this is perfectly ok by our government and anyone offering therapy to help children keep their existing gender is to be outlawed What has happened to ireland .
