EU founders speak of possible 'multispeed' future after Brexit-FEB 4,17

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and leaders of other founding states of the European Union spoke on Friday of some countries moving ahead faster than others with further integration.After a summit in Malta at which all national leaders discussed plans for a formal declaration in March on the future of the bloc following Britain's departure, Merkel and others offered endorsements of a so-called "multispeed Europe", which some governments fear could damage EU unity in the wake of Brexit.Though they disagree on details, Berlin, Paris and many of the 17 other states which use the euro currency are keen to bind the euro zone closer together after years of crisis in which investors have doubted the currency's survival. But some countries around the periphery of the bloc fear creating a system in which a hard core of states pushes the EU into policies they do not want.The last few years, Merkel told reporters, showed "that there will be an EU with different speeds, that not everyone will take part in the same levels of integration".One area in which governments are divided over the degree of integration is defense. With the departure of long-time skeptic Britain, France and Germany are keen to develop closer EU ties.The 27 leaders are due to meet without British Prime Minister Theresa May on March 25 in the Italian capital to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding Treaty of Rome.French President Francois Hollande said he thought that the Rome statement could mention "several speeds" as a possible way forward, though he stressed: "European unity is essential."In a reminder of divisions in the bloc, Hollande, who will step down in May, took a dig at East European states which Paris complains fail to honor commitments -- such as taking in asylum-seekers -- while accepting big subsidies from Brussels:"Europe isn't a cash-box, not a self-service restaurant, a Europe where you come and take what you need, where you take your structural funds or get access to the internal market and then show no solidarity at all in return," he told reporters."Europe was built to be stronger together and it's that rule, that principle, which should be driven home in March."In a paper offering proposals for the Rome declaration, the three Benelux neighbors said "different paths of integration and enhanced cooperation could provide for effective responses to challenges that affect member states in different ways".(Reporting by Andreas Rinke, Elizabeth Pineau and Alastair Macdonald; Editing by Hugh Lawson)

EU is 'best in world', Serb minister says By Andrew Rettman-FEB 27,17-EUOBSERVER

BRUSSELS, Today, 13:52-The EU and Serbia have moved a step closer despite regional and geopolitical tensions in the Western Balkans.Ministers from both sides began talks on Serbia’s alignment to EU norms in education and culture at an event in Brussels on Monday (27 February).Serbia is now in negotiations on eight out of 35 chapters in the EU accession rulebook.Malta's deputy prime minister Louis Grech, speaking for the Maltese EU presidency, said there was also “progress” in three other areas - on customs union, company law, and intellectual property rights.Jadranka Joksimovic, Serbia’s chief of EU integration, said some of these chapters might be opened by the end of June.She noted that Dutch, French, and German elections, where anti-EU and anti-immigrant forces were on the rise, could make Europe less welcoming.“We realise this will have an impact on the negotiation process in the short term,” she said.She added that Serbia’s EU aspirations remained undimmed, however. “The EU remains the best place in the world for living [standards] and for work [opportunities] and Serbia wants to be part of this club,” she said.EU enlargement commissioner Johannes Hahn said Serbia’s own upcoming elections could pose a problem.The “campaign phase” should “not lead to a standstill in all this work [EU reforms],” he said.He spoke amid nationalist tension in the Western Balkans, in which Serbia and Kosovo recently threatened to use military force in a row over a Serbian train.The train, painted with the slogan "Kosovo is Serbia", was stopped from entering Kosovo at the last minute.Hahn said the situation remained “fragile” and “shaky”.He said it was a “very good sign” of “increased interest” in the region that EU leaders would discuss the Western Balkans at a summit in March.Monday’s widening of Serbia’s EU talks also comes amid Russia’s push-back against Western influence in the former Yugoslavia.Serbia’s chief EU negotiator on Thursday underlined that it would have to revise its bilateral trade agreements with Russia if it were to join the European Union.Serbian president Tomislav Nikolic, a pro-Russia nationalist, said one day earlier that the EU would force it to recognise Kosovo’s independence and to impose sanctions on Russia if it were to join.“I’m the first person to speak about these two conditions … these are the conditions that you will hear about tomorrow,” he said.

1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication,(VATICAN IN POLITICS) and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 And the woman (FALSE CHURCH) was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour,(VATICAN COLOURS)(ANOTHER REASON WE KNOW THE FALSE POPE COMES FROM THE VATICAN) and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.(THE VATICAN IS BUILT ON 7 HILLS OR MOUNTAINS)
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.(VATICAN-CATHOLICS ALL AROUND THE WORLD OVER 1 BILLION)
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast,(WORLD DICTATOR) these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.(BOMB OR NUKE THE VATICAN)
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city,(VATICAN) which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Let’s get rid of prejudices and walk together”-In the Church of All Saints, Francis invites Catholics and Anglicans not to resign before divisions, but to commit to reconciliation. “Our relations are good, theological unity comes on the way”27/02/2017 alle ore 13:11-salvatore cernuzio-VATICAN INSIDER

rome-In the past, we looked at each other “with suspicion and hostility”, today “we recognize ourselves as we truly are: brothers and sisters in Christ.” And as such - as “friends and pilgrims” - “we wish to walk together.” Among neo-Gothic columns and marble arches of the Anglican Church of All Saints, hidden away in what was once known as the “English quarter” of Rome, Francesco - the first Pope to ever enter its fray - shows the path to increase ecumenical relations between Catholics and Anglicans. A past to be left behind and a future to be built together, “free from prejudices”, and with “humility” for the challenges of our time. The Starting point is humility, that “not only is a beautiful virtue,” but “is a matter of identity,” the Pope said. “To become humble is to decentralize, recognize ourselves in the need of God, begging for mercy”. “We are vessels of clay” Pope Francis stated taking cue from St. Paul’s letter to the Corinth. “Good’s mercy is our most valuable good, our treasure.” And added “A treasure in a vessel that can easily crack.” St. Paul is “criticized for his weaknesses,”and “has not always had an easy relationship with the community of Corinth, but he goes beyond the differences of the past” and “does not resign before the divisions and spends himself for reconciliation.” The pope continues in his Homily “St. Paul teaches that only by recognizing ourselves as weak clay vessels, as sinners always in need of mercy, then God’s treasure will poured into us and into others through us. Otherwise, we will only be filled with our own treasures, which become corrupt and rot in seemingly beautiful vessels”.The Pope expressed word of wisdom for the work that the Anglican Capitoline community plays along with other English speaking communities for the poor, the sick and the marginalized of Rome, “A true and solid communion grows and is strengthened when we act together for those in need” he said. On behalf of Catholics and Anglicans, Pope Francis then expressed his gratitude “because, after centuries of mutual suspicion, we are now able to recognize the fruitful grace of Christ is at work also in others.” “We thank the Lord - he adds - because among Christians has grown the desire for a closer relationship, which manifests itself in praying together and in a common witness to the Gospel, especially through various forms of service.”The path towards full communion “may appear slow and uncertain” at times, but today’s meeting wants to give new impetus, Bergoglio said.Arrived on time at 4 pm, the Pope was welcomed by the Rev. Robert Innes, Anglican bishop for Europe, and by Chaplain David Boardman. A large crowd of worshipers and passers had awaited him for a few hours at the front door. The Popes first act in the All Saint’s Church – a former Augustinian monastery - was the blessing with oil and incense of an icon of Christ the Savior specially commissioned for the bicentennial of All Saints to artist Ian Knowles, director of the Bethlehem Center icon.Among the most significant moments of the visit was when Pope replied off the cuff to some questions. After announcing that he is studying a trip to South Sudan with the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby , Pope Francis answers to Margherita, a student of art history at the Sapienza, who asked about the relationship between Catholics and Anglicans today. “The relations between Catholics and Anglicans are good!” Exclaimed impetuously Francis, “We see ourselves as brothers and sisters. It is true that in history there have been bad things, however no one can “rip a piece of history and take it as if it were an icon. It is not right; it must be read in the hermeneutics of history. We have moved on. “ “We do not do everything the same way” Bergoglio continued “but we walk together”. He then suggested a formula: “I don’t know whether it can be said historically, but it will help us understand: with two steps forward and half a step back, but we do have to move on. And we have to continue like this. For the moment it is fine, every day has its concerns. “The second question was asked by Jane, Australian professor of English at the Sapienza who cited Benedict XVI’s admonition on the risk of giving, in ecumenical dialogue, priority to collaboration within social action rather than following the most demanding path of theological agreement. Bergoglio replied, “I do not know the context in which Benedict XVI has said this, and it’s hard for me to answer.” Then he cited Athenagoras “famous joke,” to Paul VI: “We shall work towards unity among us and leave all theologians on an island so they can think”.What is the core? “What Benedict said is true: we must look for the theological dialogue to seek the roots of the sacraments and other things on which we disagree,” the Argentine Pope said. “But this cannot be done in a laboratory; it has to be done on the way... We are walking on the way and on the way we can also discuss.” Meanwhile, “we help each other in need, in life, in the service of charity to the poor, in the hospitals, in wars. The Ecumenical dialogue is done while walking on the way, theological things are discussed on the way. “Finally, the Bishop of Rome, encouraged by Ernst, a Nigerian seminarian soon deacon, welcomes the “vitality” and “creativity” of the young churches of the southern hemisphere, from which - he says - the churches in Europe could take example. “Young Churches have a different vitality because they are young. They are looking for a way to express themselves differently. For example, a liturgy here in Rome or in London or Paris is not the same as an “in Africa.“Young churches need to collaborate” and “Ecumenism for them is easier,” admits the Pope. This does not mean being “superficial”, they do not negotiate faith.” It simply means, “They have more courage than us who are not so young.” And from this new “wealth”, Europe could benefit. Precisely for this reason, according to the Pope, “it would do well to send some seminarians to do pastoral experiences in the young churches, and vice versa. It would be a great wealth. “At the end of the function, there was the official signing of an agreement formalizing a partnership between the Church of All Saints and the Catholic parish of All Saints in Rome. “A good sign,” says the Pope, of the will to move towards full communion. Another “good sign” were the gifts given to the Pope. The Anglican community offered its typical products: homemade orange marmalade and “Simnel cake”, a cake on top of which there are 11 dough balls, which represent the twelve apostles minus Judas.

Cardinal Tauran at al-Azhar University for a seminar on extremism-This is the first joint initiative between the Vatican and the prestigious Sunni university after the resumption of dialogue, interrupted in 2011-21/02/2017-vatican insider staff

rome-Starting tomorrow, Wednesday 22 until Thursday February 23, the president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, C ardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, will be in Cairo, Egypt, to attend a seminar at the University of Al-Azhar, the most authoritative academic and theological center of Sunni Islam. The theme of the event is: The role of al-Azhar al-Sharif and of the Vatican in Countering the phenomena of fanaticism, extremism and violence in the name of religion.This was communicated by a note from the Vatican press office, explaining that Cardinal Tauran will be accompanied by the secretary of the dicastery, Archbishop Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, and Msgr. Khaled Akasheh, head official for Islam. The prelate will lead the Catholic delegation, which will also include Msgr. Bruno Musarò, apostolic nuncio in Egypt. The meeting will take place, as on previous occasions, on the eve of February 24, in memory of Pope St. John Paul II’s visit to Al-Azhar, on that day in 2000.This is the first joint initiative between the two institutions after the resumption of direct talks, interrupted in 2011 after the bombing of the Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in Alexandria on New Year’s night. On that occasion, Pope Benedict XVI recalled the responsibilities of local authorities in the defense of Christians. The Pontiff’s words were interpreted by both the leaders of al Azhar, and the members of the Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate as an offensive towards faith. Despite the absence of official dialogue, in March 2014 Mahmoud Azab, representative of the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, attended a conference at the Vatican, and signed an interfaith declaration against human trafficking.The “thaw” took place exactly a year ago, in February 2016, with the visit of a delegation of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue to the Egyptian University. The delegation was led by Msgr Guixot, accompanied by the nuncio Musarò. The delegation was received by Abbas Shuman, deputy of the Grand Imam, Ahmad Al-Tayyib.The historic meeting between Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmad Al-Tayyib followed on May 23, 2016. After this meeting, Msgr Guixot travelled several times to Cairo, where he had several preliminary meetings. On November 12, a coordinating committee tied to the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue and the Center for the al Azhar dialogue met to organize the seminar starting tomorrow.

What President Trump should consider when appointing a Vatican ambassador-One of the best connected figures in Rome offers guidance to the president on who to appoint as his Vatican ambassador-24/02/2017-christopher lamb-VATICAN INSIDER

President Donald Trump has yet to appoint his ambassador to the Holy See, a decision which is likely to be made soon, particularly given Trump is expected to visit Pope Francis in May.Any foreign leader looking for advice on who to appoint as their envoy to the Vatican should look no further than Carla Powell, one of the best connected figures in Rome who frequently hosts cardinals and diplomats in her villa just outside the Eternal City.Lady Powell counts George W Bush, Henry Kissinger and Condoleezza Rice among her friends and instinctively knows the job of both an ambassador and how the Holy See works.She is married to Margaret Thatcher’s former foreign policy adviser Lord (Charles) Powell and, speaking from her home in Palombara Sabina, 25 miles outside of the city, she offered some advice to the president.Her five points of guidance include how the President should approach appointing his Ambassador to Italy which she included given some of the close cultural ties between the Vatican and Italy. All countries, however, are required to have separate embassies to Italy and the Holy See.Here are Lady Powell’s five points for the President to consider: 1. “Respect, Mr President, the history and traditions, and the political and cultural values of a country a lot older than yours. Remember that Rome laid the foundations for much of the modern world including the US - your ambassador must think of himself as someone connected to an ancient civilisation on which our own is built.” 2. “Choose someone who will recognise the extraordinary skills and intellectual power of Italy’s foreign policy establishment, not least its knowledge of developments in the Third World and particularly the Middle East and Africa . Remember that Italy has built global links over centuries, whether the Roman legions or Marco Polo’s opening of trade routes to Cathay.” 3. “Avoid sending an Ambassador who is easily bewitched by charming courtiers with fictitious aristocratic titles. Choose someone who by his or her background will focus on those who represent the best of modern Italy: it’s engineers, its designers , it’s creative movers and shakers, it’s respected scholars . Someone who will break out out of the cloying and protocol obsessed circles of Rome and embrace the real Italy.”4. “Appoint someone who understands the value of using the Ambassador’s dinner table for informed and sophisticated discussion under so-called Chatham House Rules where no-one is quoted , rather than for purely social purposes . Italians more than others conceive and express their ideas though intense and lively discussion of substantive issues . Your Ambassador should focus on the intelligentsia and those who exercise power and ignore social butterflies.”5. “Make sure your Ambassador understands the global influence of the Vatican and its extraordinary network, particularly under this remarkable Pope . Even though there is a separate Embassy to the Vatican, the Church plays such a substantive role in Italy knowing its leaders is a must for the Ambassador to the state of Italy as well. Not for nothing do the British talk of ’Roman’ Catholicism! You will find the leading figures of the Church among the wisest, most stimulating company and most informative interlocutors your Ambassador will meet.”For many years Lady Powell has observed how the wheels of diplomacy turn and insider her villa there are photographs from some of the 20th century best known figures including Colin Powell, Tony Blair, Lady Thatcher, and Dick Cheney.Lady Powell also has close ties with the Vatican, helping to arrange a meeting between Lady Thatcher and Benedict XVI in 2009 while a delegation of top figures from the Holy See went to check in on her after she was rubbed at gun point at home in 2014.Whoever becomes the new American ambassador to the Holy See will need to do exercise some careful diplomacy given the differing global agendas of Pope Francis and President Trump. While Francis is upholding the compassionate, liberal world order Trump has struck a more nationalistic “America First” tone. Lady Powell’s advice should help the new incumbent navigate some of the minefields.

Egypt's Christians flee terror in north Sinai security void-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-February 26, 2017

ISMAILIA, Egypt — After Islamic militants barged into his uncle's house, shot him and his son dead, then looted the place and set it on fire, Said Sameh Adel Fawzy knew it was time to leave.The 35-year-old Christian, who owns a plumbing supply business in Egypt's troubled northern Sinai town of el-Arish, packed up a few belongings and brought his family to the Suez Canal city of Ismailia, joining hundreds of Christians fleeing a spate of sectarian killings last week."My cousin went to open the door after he heard knocking," Fawzy said, speaking from a youth hostel where authorities were putting up dozens of families who fled the town. "Masked extremists, terrorists with a pistol, took him inside and shot him in the head," then dragged his screaming mother out to the street half-dressed and killed her husband. The woman, still in shock after the Tuesday night slayings, sat nearby."They're thirsty for the blood of any Christian," said Wafaa Fawzy, the sister-in-law of Saad Hana, the man who was killed along with his son. "They were pretty clear when they said they won't leave any Christian in peace. They want an Islamic state."The killings, two of seven brutal slayings in recent weeks, come after a devastating IS suicide bombing at a Cairo church in December that killed nearly 30 people. The violence poses a fresh challenge to President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi's government to put down an IS-led insurgency in northern Sinai and prevent spillover that at times has reached the mainland.The group's local affiliate recently vowed to step up a wave of attacks on the embattled Christian minority, pointing to a shift in tactics toward targeting Christians and their holy sites, which are less protected than the military and police installations that are their usual targets.Northern Sinai has for years been the epicenter of an insurgency by Islamic militants, and the area's few Christians have slowly been trickling out. But departures surged after suspected militants again gunned down a Christian man in front of his family two days after Fawzy's uncle and cousin were killed, stoking panic among Christians.No militant group claimed has responsibility for the attacks. But the IS affiliate, which is based in northern Sinai, released a video vowing to step up attacks against Christians, who it describes as "infidels" empowering the West against Muslims.Coptic Christians, who make up about 10 per cent of Egypt's population, have always been a favourite target of Islamic extremists. But attacks on churches have increased since the 2013 military overthrow of an Islamist president. Christians overwhelmingly supported the army chief-turned-president, el-Sissi, who led the ouster, and extremists have used their support as a pretext to increase attacks against them.The Christian exodus continued for a fourth day Sunday, bringing to more than 100 the number of families who have fled el-Arish, said Nabil Shukrallah, an official with the city's Evangelical Church.Families arrive frightened and in need of supplies, which are being stockpiled at the church from donations from several parishes, he said. The new arrivals are then housed in and around the city, in private homes or in accommodations provided by the government."They're exhausted, with urgent needs for food and children's clothing," he said, as one father carried a sick infant to be evacuated by ambulance. "They're terrified of the violence and brutality."Before Egypt's 2011 Arab Spring uprising, some 5,000 Christians lived in northern Sinai, but that number has since dwindled to fewer than 1,000, according to Christian clergy members and residents. Egypt does not keep official statistics on the number of Christians in specific regions or nationwide.Rights activists say the displacement is a clear sign the government has failed to provide security for the embattled minority in Egypt's volatile northeastern corner, where they have faced threats before. They point to the fact that the government only agreed to put up the fleeing Christians in government housing after pressure on social media.Blacksmith Ezzat Yacoub Ishak said he and his two sons left their apartments carrying "absolutely nothing.""The security forces, they're all hiding and scared for their lives, scared to confront those people," he said, speaking from a Spartan room furnished with only a mattress in a rented apartment in Ismailia. "There is no security. Yes, there are military and police at the check points, but for my protection as a human there is nothing."The military's fight against the Sinai militants has been bitter.Hundreds of troops have been killed, the army has razed hundreds of houses to stop alleged militant infiltration through tunnels from neighbouring Gaza, and in 2014, el-Sissi declared a state of emergency and curfew after suicide bombings killed more than 30 soldiers. Still, the insurgency has shown little sign of abating.Mina Misak, another new arrival in Ismailia, said the spate of recent killings made life in el-Arish too much to bear. He said militants killed his father, Misak Nasrallah Misak, in a drive-by shooting a year ago as he left his job at a hospital."It tore me to pieces when I found out, and now it's even worse — there's no reason to stay," the 20-year-old said. "It's difficult to do anything. Most of my friends and family have left. And Muslims are scared too, of course.""In el-Arish, there are seven checkpoint buildings lining the road to town, but inside, you hardly see a soldier," said Nabil, who like other fleeing Christians declined to give his last name for fear of reprisals. "Whenever there's an attack they come after we telephone them, sometimes days later, and ask for descriptions of the killers. But that's all."At the Ismailia youth hostel where authorities were putting up some 45 families, luggage, boxes of food and the newly displaced arrived throughout the day."I don't want to stay there and die as a casualty in the war that has hit el-Arish," said Reda, a Christian civil servant who arrived two days earlier with six family members, including grandchildren. "If they allow us we will stay here until the terrorism is over and the government makes peace."At the Evangelical Church, a shop owner named Fayez arrived with a truckload of furniture ahead of his family to seek a place to relocate."Hopefully we'll find a home and be able to stay here, but I don't know how I would move my business," he said. "Daily life looks normal in el-Arish, until you hear about terrorists shooting people in their own homes."___Follow Brian Rohan on Twitter at: www.twitter.com/brian_rohanBrian Rohan, The Associated Press.


UN lawyer to visit Manitoba to observe influx of asylum seekers-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-February 27, 2017

The United Nations will send a human rights lawyer to Manitoba on an observation mission in the coming weeks related to the recent influx of refugees who have trickled into the province on foot after fleeing the United States."We're interested in seeing what the situation is there," said Azadeh Tamjeedi, a lawyer with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.Tamjeedi plans to meet with asylum seekers, RCMP, the Canada Border Services Agency and refugee advocates in Winnipeg."It's just going to be an observation mission," she said.Tamjeedi said her mission will likely include a trip to the Emerson, Man., border and an investigation into how refugees are being processed by both RCMP and border agents.As CBC News revealed in January, hundreds of asylum seekers have crossed into Manitoba near Emerson over the past 10 months.Many have risked their lives crossing the border through snow-covered farm fields this winter, sometimes in frigid temperatures.The Canada-U.S. Safe Third Country agreement requires asylum seekers to make a refugee claim with the first country they arrive in. But an exemption allows those who enter the country through somewhere other than an official port of entry to make a claim for asylum.Critics argue that exemption encourages people to take desperate measures to get into Canada.UN has checked with Quebec-Tamjeedi said her visit will centre on the 1951 United Nations Refugee Convention, which forces Canada to take in asylum seekers who arrive in the country, but she said the UN has no mounting concerns with how officials have handled the situation so far."We're pretty happy with the system in Canada. It's a very robust system."Tamjeedi's colleague Jean-Nicolas Beuze has already visited Lacolle, Que., another border where asylum seekers have been walking into Canada."That mission went really smoothly. They were really happy with the way people were being processed," Tamjeedi said.Minister not convinced of trend-Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen told CTV he is not convinced the number of asylum seekers crossing into Manitoba is a growing trend, despite concerns from local politicians and the Manitoba government.Hussen's comments came just hours after a CBC Manitoba journalist spoke to a group of seven refugee claimants who walked into Manitoba near Emerson in the wee morning hours.The minister said the federal government is monitoring the situation and it's still too early to tell if more asylum seekers will walk into Manitoba.Information Radio is live from Emerson on Monday morning.

Border services sets up emergency trailer to make space for refuge seekers-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-February 27, 2017

Two more asylum seekers were picked up by RCMP on Monday morning just minutes after the Canada Border Services Agency announced new resources to help with the influx of refugee claimants in southern Manitoba.RCMP said 143 asylum seekers have crossed on foot into Manitoba this year, including at least a dozen on Sunday and Monday.The Canada Border Services Agency has set up a trailer near the U.S. border to help asylum seekers through the refugee claim process and relieve some of the strain on emergency officials in the border town of Emerson, Man., about 100 kilometres south of Winnipeg.More than 400 asylum seekers have walked into Manitoba in the past 10 months, many arriving under the cover of darkness in Emerson, where they've been helped by local emergency officials.Expanded waiting room-The size of groups of border-jumping asylum seekers has increased in recent weeks, and border officers have been running out of space to temporarily keep asylum seekers in their office in Emerson."Our current office was being stretched," said Jeryn Peters, chief of operations with Canada Border Services Agency.The new trailer will function as an "expanded waiting room" for the time being, she said."We're very well-trained and experienced in processing refugees and other clients, so we adjust our operations to manage it effectively," Peters said.RCMP Chief Supt. Mark Fischer said asylum seekers appear to be crossing outside of what has become the normal range, "increasing the risk where they're crossing and the distance."Two men from Ghana lost fingers and toes to frostbite after making the trek into Manitoba on Christmas Eve.Refugees in homeless shelter-The Manitoba government announced funding for 14 additional emergency housing units Friday, as well as extra funds for refugee co-ordination services.Rital Chahal, director of refugee settlement agency Welcome Place, said the 14 units will hold up to 42 people. They won't be up and running until Wednesday and will only be available until the end of May, she added.The Salvation Army in Winnipeg stepped up earlier this month and offered up 30 beds in its homeless shelter to refugee claimants.About 350 of the shelter's 400 available beds are occupied on any given day of the year, Rob Kerr, a Salvation Army major, said Monday.As of Sunday night, 57 refugee claimants were staying in the shelter, he said."If the numbers keep increasing, and we don't see any of our current residents who are refugee claimants moving on, then it becomes a bit of a concern for us as to how we're going to do this going forward," he said. "Right now we're managing."Abdi Ahmed, an organizer in the Winnipeg Somali community, said former refugees who settled in Manitoba are chipping in where possible."People are opening their homes," he said. "The refugee claimants who came here last year are housing refugee claimants who have arrived recently."Premier Brian Pallister urged the federal government Friday to come to the table and work with the province to better co-ordinate border security and resettlement efforts in Manitoba.Safe 3rd Country-Many of the migrants to recently enter Manitoba first arrived in the U.S. and skirted the Safe Third Country agreement in the process when they crossed illegally into Canada on foot.The pact between U.S. and Canadian governments states asylum seekers must file for refugee status in the first "safe" country they land in. Exceptions are made for unaccompanied minors and people with blood relatives in Canada.Claimants trying to cross into Canada from the U.S. are supposed to be turned around at the border — that is, if they try to cross at an official border station. Trudge through a snow-covered Prairie field, and a United Nations convention on refugee protections kicks in that allows asylum seekers to file in Canada.The Safe Third Country agreement has been the subject of criticism since it came into effect in 2004.Critics and immigration lawyers have called for a suspension of the agreement claiming it encourages asylum seekers to risk their lives crossing through fields in the bitter cold.Canada's Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen, himself a former refugee claimant from Somalia, has stood by the agreement and the notion that it helps prevent "asylum shopping" among newcomers.

Why do they want to leave?': Life on the Quebec border in Trump's America-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-February 26, 2017

The search lights flooding his windows, the helicopters overhead, the woman who knocked on his door late one night asking how to get to Canada — it has all become too much for Tim Lamb.The 25-year-old, who lives in Champlain, N.Y., within a few hundred metres of the border, decided to get a German shepherd to help him feel safe.But if this keeps up, he says, he may need to move."It's nerve-racking. It really sucks because it has such a nice yard," said Lamb, who relies on disability coverage to afford his one-room, $700-a-month trailer.Lamb is among the residents whose quiet lives have been upended by the recent surge in illegal crossings into Quebec.In January, 452 people claimed asylum at the Quebec border — a 230 per cent increase from the same month a year earlier. Experts attribute the increase to the political climate under U.S. President Donald Trump.Many of those crossings have taken place at the end of Lamb's street, Roxham Road, even though the official port of entry in Lacolle, Que., is only a 15-minute drive away.On a daily basis over the past month, parents pushing strollers and couples clutching backpacks pull up in taxis at the end of the dirt road, lined by trailers and pickup trucks.The spectacle — often captured by photographers and TV camera crews, as U.S. border patrol officers watch from a distance — has spawned a mix of consternation and confusion among those who live nearby.-The Canadian gateway-For migrants unnerved by Trump's America, Roxham Road is the gateway that allows them another chance at securing asylum status in North America.Crossing into Canada illegally allows them to avoid the constrictions of the Safe Third Country Agreement, under which asylum seekers who have landed in either country are denied a chance to seek refuge in the other at official entry points.The pact was signed in 2002, in the wake of the Sept. 11, with the aim of strengthening North American security while keeping trade and commerce flowing freely across the border.Recently, asylum seekers have come from Syria, Eritrea, Sudan, Yemen, Iraq and beyond.They arrive at Roxham Road after crossing thousands of kilometres by bus, plane and foot.A collection of boarding passes, torn up and tossed into the mud a few metres from the border, detail a dizzying journey from Los Angeles to Chicago to Boston to Plattsburgh, N.Y., about 30 kilometres south of Champlain.A more common route involves taking a Greyhound from New York City to Plattsburgh. A gas station there with a Mini-Mart and a Dunkin' Donuts is the last stop before the border on a bus route bound for Montreal.A cab ride from the Greyhound stop to Roxham Road can cost between $40 and $50 US.Christian Gaudet, a dispatcher for City Taxi in Plattsburgh, says he routinely gets calls from the bus station or hotels around town requesting a trip to the border.Last Wednesday alone, 19 people walked across the muddy pathway that divides the two countries, an RCMP officer at the border said.Five more — a family of three from Turkey, and a married couple from Myanmar and Turkey — arrived Thursday morning in separate taxis.When asked why they were fleeing the United States, the Turkish man walking with his wife replied simply, "because it's not safe," after handing two $20 bills to the driver.'It shouldn't be that f---ing easy'-In another trailer a few doors down from Lamb, Gino Ramirez is taking a wrench to an oil barrel that he plans to convert into a barbecue for cooking chicken and deer.Ramirez, a veteran of both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, lives with his twin three-year-old boys.He suspects many people are leaving because of Trump. But he doesn't have much sympathy for them."In my eyes, if you're not legal, you should be doing something to get legal," said Ramirez, whose grandparents immigrated to the U.S. from Mexico.Ramirez believes the government should build a border wall on the Canadian side — or at least increase patrols — to make it more difficult to cross in either direction."It shouldn't be that f--king easy," he said, quickly pointing out that he's not worried for his own safety. "I have a bunch of guns in the house if I need them."The number of people crossing into Canada is nothing like the influx seen in Europe and elsewhere, where thousands are living in refugee camps after fleeing violence in the Middle East.Canadian officials say there have been similar increases in asylum claims in the past because of policy shifts in the U.S., Canada or abroad.But the recent increase has, for some Americans living near the border, changed the way they see their northern neighbours."You guys treat them good, you give them a place to live, don't you?" said Harold Gonyo, 61, referring to Canada's handling of refugees.Gonyo, who has lived at the corner of Roxham Road for 30 years, said it "has always been hot spot" for illegal border crossings.But he, too, has noticed an increase in the past month. More than once, he's seen a van pull into his driveway; a family will scramble out, then head toward Canada.More recently, he said, marked taxis drive asylum seekers right to the border line.-Straddling the line in Trump country-Compared to Emerson, Man., where asylum seekers from the U.S. have to walk for hours across a barren landscape, often in brutal cold, crossing at Roxham Road is far shorter and less arduous.But Roxham Road isn't the only spot around Champlain where it is easy for asylum seekers to cross illegally.The area is filled with quiet country roads that end at the border line, like the one where Calvin Allen, a retired roofer, has lived for three decades.Over the years, Allen has come across clothing, an abandoned car and even financial documents with a Florida address in the forested area by his home.Last week, he spotted footprints going into Canada, but otherwise he hasn't noticed a huge increase in clandestine crossings.Despite the array of options when it comes to crossing into Canada, asylum seekers appear to prefer Roxham Road-It is close to the bus station and the public road goes right up to the border line, where RCMP officers stand guard. After all, they need to be arrested in order to exploit the loophole in the Safe Third Country Agreement.Like the majority of voters in upper New York state, Allen supported Trump, explaining that he detests Hillary Clinton."We're all sick of the politicians," he said.When asked why he thought some people were trying to leave the U.S., Allen said, "I've never been an immigrant, so I'm not sure what it's like."Lamb, out walking with Cocoa, the German shepherd he claimed from the pound, seemed particularly mystified by the situation unfolding on Roxham Road.One night, not long ago, a woman turned up at his door asking for help, but he couldn't understand what she was saying. "I couldn't even read her passport," he said."Why do they want to leave? Where are they coming from?  Why don't they want to stay and try to find a job? It's all so strange."
