Refugees can get permanent legal status after one year



While Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are calling to let more Syrian refugees into the country, not much thinking occurs of what will happen after they are let in. Most people think that since they are "refugees", that they will have to go home at some point.

Not so. After a year, refugees can apply for what's called permenant legal status. That means, effectively, that they get to stay here forever.

A refugee or asylee may apply for permanent resident status in the United States 1 year after being admitted as a refugee or being granted asylum status. If you are a refugee, you are required by law to apply for permanent resident status 1 year after being admitted to the United States in refugee status.

But surely, there must be some strict screening requirements to get permanent legal status, right? Wrong.

If you are a refugee, you may be able to apply for and obtain permanent resident status 1 year after you are admitted to the United States as a refugee and you: • Have been physically present in the United States for at least 1 year after being admitted as a refugee; • Are admissible to the United States as an immigrant; and • Have not had your refugee admission terminated.

Half of life is just showing up! You don't have to show that you have had a job; you don't have to show that you are currently physically healthy; you don't have to show a clean criminal record; in fact, you don't have to show much of anything.

That means if a refugee simply stays below the radar for a year, he can get permanent residence as there don't seem to be any real requirements to obtain it. Theoretically, you can lose it for committing "certain criminal acts", but we have seen in practice that Obama has avoded deporting many illegals convicted of crimes he considers too "minor", so I would think the chance of deportation for many crimes would be slim to none.

So when Hillary talks about letting in 65,000 refugees from Syria, keep in mind these people would probably be permanent residents before long, and probably citizens not much longer after that.

Mattel has an unintentionally hysterical ad showing a young boy dressed up and talking like a stereotypical homosexual pining for a barbie doll. The boy, who looks much too young to even understand what anal intercourse with another man could entail, has bright blonde dyed hair, heavily gelled, that comes down over the forehead. His head bobs while he talks, and he even has a lisp. "Moschino Barbie, it's sssssso fierce!" he says. He's even wearing a pimp-like zebra print outfit.
