German police were overwhelmed when confronted by an angry mob of migrants who demanded the release of a man from Togo who had been apprehended in a refugee reception center and detained for deportation.

Greece’s ruling radical leftist Syriza coalition government is moving to grant 800,000 immigrants citizenship, which amounts to nearly one tenth of the native Greek population, in a bid to stay in power. The same agenda is infecting America, Europe, Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Coincidence?
The UN laws that the US has adopted include prohibiting a Muslim travel ban, giving refugees free legal aid, free education and welfare, allowing refugees to work, and regulations that make deportation very difficult. It is important to note that the Supremacy Clause places Constitutional law above all other laws and regulations, including international treaty law.

Now he is trying to renegotiate the ‘Safe Third Country Agreement’ that requires asylum seekers to to apply for asylum in the first country that they entered.
