Hong Kong has one of the worst records for rate of acceptance for refugee claimants – 0.8 per cent acceptance compared with over 40 per cent on average globally.

Can Hong Kong try to follow Canada's lead on refugees?

In order to truly understand a person, I believe that you need to know from where they came, including the challenges and triumphs. I think it is important to listen to people and to extrapolate motivations from life experience. That being said, this is a must read for those who did not win the "birth place lottery" that exists in a handful of countries, America included. It is easy to politicize, much harder to humanize.

Yesterday, for #mlk day, a small group -- Paul and Angela Roundy, @sendtheclowns , Kristin, and @slightlylessthanperfect Siaki, and @em.schweizer from Home for Refugees went with @serranochilii / Little Brushstrokes and @wrsocal Legal spent the day in #tijuana , #mexico . Home for Refugees spent the time making art with the migrant caravan children while World Relief legal staff served at @alotrolado_org legal office sharing legal options for their parents in seeking #asylum . 
First we briefed in San Ysidro before we walked over the border. We spent the first part of the morning puffy painting hats in the plaza at Tijuana's El Chaparral border crossing and talked about our experience in the plaza right after. Then we went to Al Otro Lado office where the children's parents were learning about their options. The next place we led art was with the staff from World Vision Mexico's Children's Emergency Response Team at the shelter Movimiento Juventud 2000. Also our group had brought hygiene kits of shampoo, toothpaste, etc and passed them out to the families. After this shelter, we had lunch on Avenida Revolucion and reflected on our day and life and immigration at the border before we headed back over the border and home. We all grew in new ways and understandings thru yesterday's border experience.

Throughout the year, #homeforrefugees will be leading a couple day trips for small groups of 8-10 people to the #usmexicoborder to serve the #families of the #migrantcaravan and explore the broader topic of immigration. Family friendly for elementary school age and older. Let us know if you are interested. #asylumseekers #refugees #kids #immigration #border

We’ve long believed that #refugees and #asylumseekers are often treated as less than human because of no fault of their own — and the world must do better. Together with our friends at @kafnuhongkong and from Hong Kong’s refugee community, we explored how asylum seekers can be given the avenue and agency to create change so everyone has hope.

Sneak peak into the first session of our free course for asylum seekers. Looks like they had fun today!

This is part of the project generously financed by Stockholm county with the aim to introduce people with asylum status into the Swedish society and in our case also give them a life saving skill, very important in Sweden, - water safety and basic swimming skills. 💦
.
We will keep you updated throughout this semester how our fighters are doing!

Does your company or organisation want to give a gift of being able to swim to someone who can't afford it? Let us know! We are open for collaborations!

Foreign detainees stand behind bars at an immigration detention centre in #Bangkok, #Thailand. The #UNHCR and advocacy groups for the protection of #refugees and asylum seekers lauded a memorandum signed by Thai authorities on Monday, committing to end the practice of detaining migrant children held in #immigration detention centres. Rights groups have for years condemned Thailand, which is not a signatory to the UN’s convention protecting refugees, for its hostility to asylum seekers who are often treated as illegal immigrants and incarcerated.

Thursday, 14 February 2019 - The Future of International Solidarity in Global Refugee Protection 
The term “international solidarity” has since been invoked regularly following the 1957 Declaration on Territorial Asylum. However, international solidarity is used more in theory than in practice, as the concept serves both the human rights of those fleeing persecution, as well as the sovereignty of nation-states.

Professor Obiora Chinedu Okafor joins us and @latrobeuni to discuss how successful the mobilising of international solidarity has been in international law and what the role of the UNHCR’s recent work on Global Compact on Refugees has played? Book your tickets using the link in the bio.

Did you know that after world war 1 the UN sat down and came to an agreement that when ever a country is in crisis from war or government collapse and is deemed no longer safe for its occupants. Those people are legally and freely alowed to seek asylum with an open boarder policy. This is a decision after many countries turned away Jewish people when the nazi regime was swallowing Europe. We are all cut from the same cloth. 📸 @graciie_annn #fightthegoodfight

Allow us to re-introduce ourselves: #WeAreDACA⠀
.⠀
My name is Rossy. I have a PhD in Linguistics and am a professor at #TexasTechUniversity. I am also a #DACA recipient...⠀
.⠀
Six undocumented young people sit in limbo between deportation and a path to citizenship. DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) has provided nearly 800,000 undocumented young people a chance to work legally, go to college, start businesses, and pursue the “American Dream.”⠀
.⠀
After DACA is rescinded, Waking Dream follows the unfolding fate of six of these young people as they fight for legal status in the U.S., struggle with the deportation of family members, and pursue their dreams in a country that is trying harder and harder to push them out. They know their fate must go one direction and they are fighting for their future in America.⠀

Conservative leader Andrew Scheer was in Montreal today to announce a series of promises aimed at boosting support for the Conservatives ahead of the fall federal elections, for which Quebec is seen as a key battleground.⁣
•⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Last week, Quebec Premier Legault outlined a list of demands for the federal parties knowing they'd be duking it out for Quebecers' support. One such demand was having more say over immigration. In Legault's own election campaign this past fall he promised to curb the number of immigrants coming to Quebec, in part referring to the large number of asylum-seekers making their way over the border from the United States.⁣
•⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
In Canada, jurisdiction over immigration is shared between federal and provincial levels of government. Prime Minister Trudeau has told Legault that he would be open to discussing a 20% reduction in the amount of immigrants Quebec takes in. While Scheer announced that a Conservative federal government would transfer more autonomy over immigration to Quebec, he didn't say what that means in practice.⁣
•⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
On trickier questions about pipeline development, which Legault has said would be "socially unacceptable" here, Scheer was unable to provide an answer, often avoiding the question altogether. ⁣
•⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
It seems as though where Legault's CAQ and Scheer's Conservatives align -- namely on reducing immigration to Canada -- Scheer was quick and eager to make promises. Where the two diverge, however, Scheer had no comment. At this time, his promises to Quebec ring hollow; 9 months away from the election, the Conservative party's stance on two key issues -- immigration and the environment -- remain unclear.⁣

Big cheers for Robin 🙌🕺.
▪️
Robin is a practitioner with our refugee and migrant team in London. When he isn't helping young refugees and migrants find accommodation, overcome language barriers and rebuild their lives in new communities, you can find him campaigning with different groups against immigration controls.

The work Robin and other practitioners do is invaluable in helping these young people feel safe and included in society. .

We received word last Monday during our visit that the encampment at the Gateway Bridge would be dismantled and the 12 compañerxs living there would be the last asylum seekers able to camp out. We received word that on Monday night, the encampment at the Gateway bridge was torn down. The 12 original AS have all been allowed to cross into the US, but more asylum seekers are finding refuge in other areas in the vicinity. This is problematic because there is no type of provision or security for these folx. We will continue collecting items for our trip to the border in a few weeks and next month, so that they may have the provisions they need. These pictures were taken by our hermana, Elisa Filippone. #AsylumSeekers #RefugeeEncampment #BlessedBeTheRefugees #SueñosSinFronteras

Refugees.⠀
.⠀
TIP: Unguarded, candid moments are one of my favorite types of pictures because you get a glimpse through a person's facade into who they truly are. Humans are complicated creatures and I'm not saying people are phony, but we all put up barriers to feel safe. So suspend disbelief for a moment, as a grown adult, and imagine leaving everything that has ever been familiar to you and going to a place where the culture is completely different, the landscape, the climate, the language, the food, everything is different, and you have to start your life over again because the place you once knew is no longer safe to live in. Those are the people Iskashitaa Refugee Network reaches out to. ⠀
.⠀
In this portrait of a young adult refugee from Sudan, I saw a crack in her facade as she let out a smirk in front of the camera while gleaning fruit from a date grove in Mesa, Arizona. It doesn't bother me a bit that the photo is a little chaotic compositionally. This woman's life is a little chaotic, but the smirk on her face tells me she's going to make it here in her own way with her new life in the United States. It's a real and true fleeting moment that happened in front of me and I was able to capture it with a lot of heart and a little bit of luck. .
.
It makes me happy that I can bring you a more positive personal antidote to the immigrant and refugee crisis happening right now. But please support organizations like Iskashitaa Refugee Network because they are saving lives as ambassadors to the principles our country was founded on...by immigrants, and that deserves tremendous respect. They certainly aren’t getting rich doing this work. Not everybody is motivated my money. .⠀
