Estimado Pastor Chamagua:

 

Saludos y mis deseos por su bienestar y el de su familia. Mis deseos son también porque RCMG continúe y crezca cada día más.

Le escribo porque salió en los periódicos de El Salvador y ha sido leído como noticia en la radio, la noticia de que Australia recibirá refugiados de El Salvador debido a la violencia que se vive en ese país.

Al respecto quiero mencionar los siguientes puntos que son importantes tener presente debido a que por el clima de violencia y desesperación en algunos sectores de la población, noticias como estas dan margen a series de especulaciones y abren la puerta para aquellos que siempre se aprovechan de la necesidad de nuestro prójimo. Los puntos son estos:

1.      El anuncio fue hecho por el Primer Ministro de Australia en la ONU en una reunión convocada por Obama para tratar asuntos de refugiados y el creciente número de los mismos etc . Puede ver la noticia en mi blog http://vianalawyers.com/

2.      Australia anuncio que aumentaría el número de refugiados que actualmente recibe de 13770 por año a 18750 por año a partir del 2018;

3.      Esa diferencia del número de refugiados de 4980 seria cubierta por refugiados del área de Centro América y en particular del llamado ‘Triángulo del Norte’ (G,H y ES) no es específico para El Salvador;

4.      Los refugiados provendrán inicialmente del campo de refugiados de que existe en Costa Rica y

5.      Este cambio en el aumento del programa de refugiados se debe una apertura del programa de refugiados para incluir a otra región del mundo ya que actualmente está concentrado en Siria, Irak y países vecinos que enfrentan conflicto militar.

6.      Australia enfrenta un escrutinio internacional debido al trato que le da a los refugiados que llegar a las aguas territoriales en botes y no se les permite la entrada a Australia, sino que son enviados a los campos de asentamiento en algunas islas del pacifico en donde guarda detención hasta que son reasentados en cualquier otro país menos Australia

También quiero agregar que desde ayer que salió la noticia he recibido 12 emails de personas que viven El Salvador pidiéndome que les asista en la aplicación para emigrar debido al anuncio anterior.  Creo que esto solo es el principio de una avalancha que se viene y creo que la gente debe estar informada de cual es verdadera situación del anuncio hecho por Primer Ministro.

 

Con la voluntad de siempre de cooperar en la información y educación del pueblo a través de la radio reciba mis respetos y reconocimiento por su esfuerzo y dedicación en educar a la población.

 

Australia to take Central American refugees as Malcolm Turnbull pledges to do more at Obama summit

New York: Australia’s humanitarian refugee intake will be set permanently at almost 19,000 per year and will now include a component of Central Americans under a series of pledges offered by Malcolm Turnbull in New York overnight.

At Barack Obama’s invitation-only special summit on the refugee crisis, the Prime Minister has also stumped up fresh cash.

A new commitment of $130 million will go towards providing aid to displaced persons across the world, as well as more resources for migration agencies facing funding uncertainty. .

Under his new formula, Australia’s slated increase in the regular humanitarian intake from 13,750 to 18,750 has been effectively made permanent, over and above the skilled migration intake and irrespective of Australia’s special intake of 12,000 refugees from the Syrian and Iraq humanitarian crisis. Tony Abbott originally announced the increase but never promised it would be permanent.

And that bolstered intake will now include Central American refugees currently housed in camps in Costa Rica – a pledge described by one observer as Mr Turnbull’s “price of entry” to the summit. However, another theory suggests a potential quid pro quo arrangement, which could see the US resettle refugees stuck in Australia’s offshore detention centres on Manus Island and Nauru.

Refugees in the Costa Rica camps are from the violence-stricken “Northern Triangle” countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

“This complex crisis requires a full spectrum of responses,” Mr Turnbull told fellow governments, advocating determined policy based on a mix of principle and pragmatism.

“As leaders, we are responsible for helping those who are most vulnerable, and restoring the integrity of migration systems.

“Our strategy addresses all parts of the problem – employing strong border protection policies and a tough stance on people smugglers, while tackling the causes of displacement, with a generous and compassionate resettlement program supporting refugees in our communities.”

During a speech to the UN on Tuesday, Nauru’s Justice Minister David Adeang called on other countries “to assist in finding durable resettlement solutions” for the 942 refugees on the island.

“This is the critical missing component,” he said.

Mr Turnbull again used his intervention to stress the critical pre-condition of establishing strong border policies in order to secure public support for subsequent increases in resettlement and assistance for more of the estimated 63 million displaced persons currently on the move across the globe.

Those comments had particular resonance in the US, where terrorist attacks have prompted widespread public questioning of American immigration system – especially Muslim immigration.

As a first world country, Australia will also increase its current commitment of $220 million aimed at helping those on the ground in conflict zones.

“I can announce that Australia will commit an additional $130 million Australian over the next three years in support of peace-building and assistance to refugees, forcibly displaced communities and host countries. This multi-year commitment will give greater certainty to aid delivery organisations and facilitate longer-term planning.”

Mr Turnbull told leaders Australia’s program of permanent refugee resettlement remains the third-largest in the world.

“Australians support these actions because they have confidence that our migration system is well managed. This confidence is a key pillar on which our successful multicultural society is built (but) allow public trust to erode and the mutual trust that binds us will similarly falter. As leaders, we must always choose laws and policies that develop strength and unity over weakness and division.”

On Wednesday Labor frontbencher Richard Marles, formerly immigration spokesman, said the boosted humanitarian funding was welcome but inadequate and the refugee intake commitment was “very hollow indeed”.

“The money is welcome but it still falls well short of what Labor has committed. It’s over three years and it’s in the context of having cut funding to the UNHCR,” he told Sky News.

“In terms of the humanitarian intake, I think everyone in the sector would be very surprised to learn that when the announcement was made back in 2014, that the humanitarian intake would go up to 18,750, that it wasn’t intended to be permanent at that point in time.”

Mr Marles said it was essentially a commitment not to break a promise and was “smooth talking” to cover up failure at the Nauru and Manus Island detention centres.

Oxfam expressed disappointment that there was little actual increase to the humanitarian intake, describing the announcement as a “step in the right direction but not a new announcement”.

“We welcome the government’s promise of $130 million over the next three years to support assistance to refugees and we look forward to seeing the details of how it will be used,” chief executive Dr Helen Szoke said.

“Oxfam is calling on governments – especially rich ones – to commit to welcoming more refugees.”

Going into the summit, Mr Turnbull described that border control as “critically important”.

“Unless you have that, you will not get the public support and the confidence you need to take the 12,000 refugees from the Syrian conflict zone in addition to the 13,750 refugees that come in through the regular program, increasing to 18,750 over the next few years,” he said.

Without that control he said, “you don’t have the public license to have a generous humanitarian program and of course you are simply providing a product for people smugglers to sell and we must deprive them of that – as we have done so in Australia”.
