According to a new report, President Trump is moving forward with a deal made by the Obama administration to resettle illegal-immigrant boat people whom Australia will not accept as “refugees” even though they have been classified as such by the United Nations.
The Trump administration is reportedly preparing to implement the deal with Australia. Under the terms, the U.S. will accept hundreds of unwanted Muslims rejected for asylum by the Aussies in return for several thousand Central American refugees awaiting resettlement at a U.N. camp in Costa Rica.
The deal was negotiated last summer by Obama’s Secretary of State, John Kerry. And Trump famously tweeted that he was going to study the “dumb deal” before accepting it.
Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!

Now, Trump is reported to be moving forward with the deal.
There’s only one problem, say refugee watchdogs.
These really aren’t refugees at all. They are illegal aliens who tried to sneak into Australia, were interdicted at sea and taken to an off-shore detention center in Papua New Guinea. They migrated from some of the world’s worst jihadist strongholds – in Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia, Iran and Iraq.
The process of resettling these refugees, mostly men, is “well underway,” immigration analyst Nayla Rush reports for the Washington-based for the Center for Immigration Studies.
“The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) referred for resettlement in the United States over 850 detainees who were granted refugee status,” Rush writes. “Those could be admitted by the end of October, after undergoing ‘extreme vetting.’ But, no matter how ‘extreme’ or dependable the vetting (and the data U.S. officials use to screen these refugees is transmitted from a private refugee-resettlement contractor), the question remains: Why resettle Australia’s unwanted refugees in the United States?”
Rush highlights that these “refugees” are, for the most part, from countries which the Trump administration is trying to ban travel.
“Most also suffer from serious mental health issues, are not keen on coming to the United States to begin with (Australia was and still is their preferred destination), and are likely to have nothing but disdain for President Trump,” she reports.
Ann Corcoran, author of the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog, told WND “people everywhere are outraged by this so-called ‘deal’ that President Trump is moving forward with.”
She pointed out that the United Nations is committing fraud by designating illegal aliens all over the world as “refugees,” which automatically puts them on a track destined for the Western democracies. The U.N. is notoriously anti-American, she said, and what better way to destroy the U.S. Constitution than to flood the country with those who disdain the principles upon which the Constitution was founded.
It’s not just the deal with Australia that underscores the U.N. agenda of using “refugees” to further its goal of global wealth redistribution by shifting populations from the Third World into the First World.
In another classic example, Rohingya Muslims have been rejected by the nation of Burma, which is run by Buddhists. These Rohingya Muslims have been rejected by the Buddhists, who consider them a threat to the country’s security. The Rohingya flee into Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, where they are scooped up by the United Nations and declared “refugees.” Bingo — with that new status they are bound for America and Europe.
The same thing happens in Malta and the Greek and Italian Islands in the Mediterranean, where Somalis and other North African boat people arrive as illegal aliens and are magically transformed into “refugees” by the U.N.
“It’s happening all over the world,” Corcoran said. “This is the kind of fraud we’re seeing all over the world.
“These people being detained in Costa Rica are not legitimate refugees either,” she adds, “but they’re getting ready to magically transform those illegals into refugees and send them to Australia. We get their illegals and they get illegals from Costa Rica.”
This is exactly the kind of “deal” that Donald Trump, as a candidate last year, derided, Corcoran said.
“We don’t get anything out of this deal. You can’t call this Australia deal a deal because there’s nothing in it for us,” she said. “A deal connotes that each party gets something. Illegal aliens are being moved like chess pieces all over the world as directed by the U.N. but I don’t see what’s in it for America.
“These are people who tried to break into Australia and they became magically transformed into refugees. It’s nothing but fraud. Rampant fraud,” she continued.
“The Burmese Rohingya are going to Indonesia or Thailand, the Somalis are crossing the Mediterranean from Africa and getting to Malta where they become ‘refugees’ courtesy of the U.N., and we then pay them [welfare] to come live in our towns in America.”
This is the kind of fraudulent U.N. activity spotlighted by former State Department insider Mary Doetsch, who worked in refugee camps around the world and saw the fraud up close and personal, Corcoran noted. Doetsch shared her story with WND after retiring from the State Department last year.
The definition of a “refugee” according to the Geneva Protocols is someone with a “well-founded fear” of persecution due to their religious or ethnic background or their political beliefs. But most of those classified as refugees today are essentially economic migrants, which are afforded all sorts of “rights” under the U.N. 2030 Agenda adopted by President Obama and more than 190 world leaders in September 2015.
According to the New Urban Agenda, which is the implementation policy for the 2030 Agenda, poverty-stricken Third Worlders are entitled to migrate to wealthier countries and demand affordable housing, affordable healthcare, affordable transportation, and other basic “human rights.”
“What Mary Doetsch saw was that these people are often not legitimate refugees, very few are legitimate,” Corcoran said. “They’re making up their stories about persecution and getting the blessing of the U.N. to transform them into refugees which is their ticket to a wealthy welfare state in the West.”
Corcoran said the Australian deal was cooked up by former Assistant Secretary of State Anne Richard, who was in charge of the refugee program under Obama.
“She cooked it up. She’s at Georgetown now as a professor. I think people like Richard are still there advising many of the federal agencies from the outside, as part of the Obama shadow government.”
Here’s how the deal went down, according to Rush: At a meeting in New York on May 4 to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea during World War II, both President Trump and Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull downplayed the reportedly tense phone exchange they had in January about this refugee deal.
Turnbull told reporters: “We can put the refugee deal behind you and move on.” President Trump added: “It’s all worked out. It’s been worked out for a long time.”
Under Australia’s tough border security laws, asylum seekers who are intercepted trying to reach the country by boat illegally are automatically sent to offshore processing centers on the small island nation of Nauru and on Manus Island, part of the nation of Papua New Guinea.4 The Australian government further toughened its immigration policy in July 2013 and announced that no detainees would ever be settled in Australia, even if they were granted refugee status.
Faced with increased pressure from the opposition and human rights activists to shut down these offshore detention centers (not to mention the billions of dollars they are costing Australian taxpayers), Prime Minster Turnbull had to look for a third country to accept its unwanted refugees.
This issue is pressing and needs to be resolved before October 2017 because, “[t]he company contracted to provide services in the Manus Island and Nauru centres, Ferrovial, said it would not renew its contract with the Australian government beyond October.”5
Furthermore, the demolition of the Manus detention center is to begin in May and every detainee is to be removed (by force if need be) by October 31, according to Papua New Guinea immigration officials.6
