Roma enter Mexico to illegally enter the USA to get to.........Canada!

DERBY LINE, Vermont (AP) A minivan with California license plates and a dozen passengers zipped across the border between Vermont and Quebec in October, heading north in a southbound lane unblocked by traffic.


You wouldn't be bad if you thought it was Mexicans.


The Roma are descendants of nomads who moved out of what is now India 800 years ago. They speak a distinct language, a variation of Hindi. They have faced centuries of oppression in Europe that many advocates and some countries, like Canada say continues today. They have been forcibly resettled through the ages and were put in concentration camps during World War II.

More than 1 million Roma are believed to be living in Romania, a country of about 22 million. There is widespread prejudice against Roma, who are often unemployed and lack formal education because they do not always send their children to school. Because of poverty and prejudice, Roma often travel to Italy, Spain, France and Britain, where they beg, busk, live off welfare benefits or get involved in petty crime, according to authorities in those countries.


So.....if the Jews got handed a homeland after dubya-dubya-two...why didn't the Roma get their own lands?

Same for the Kurds. Why can't they have a homeland?
The Basque as well.


In 2010, 85 people crossed the border illegally at Stanstead, according to statistics from the Canada Border Services Agency. In 2011, that number rose to 168, and so far this year, it is 260.

Statistics from U.S. Customs and Border Protection show that 384 Romanians were apprehended along the Mexican border in fiscal year 2010, 575 in 2011 and 901 in 2012. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have noticed the spike.


Does this trend require that the new immigration reforms we're expecting to address this type of migration?


The appeal of the border crossing between Derby Line and Stanstead, as opposed to other points along the long border with Canada, is apparent.

The two towns are separate only in name and country otherwise, they are essentially one community. The border runs through yards and buildings. Until recently, people could freely walk across quiet residential streets to visit neighbors in another country.

Since Sept. 11, many of those streets have been blocked off and residents required to pass through border posts.


An unseen tragedy of 9-11. That sucks the community had to be split up.
The old days sounded nice.

There are a lot of areas like that between States...but areas where residential American and Canadien neighborhoods are connected are probably rare.

Because the Roma, Basque or Kurds do not have a Magical Book that says everyone has to pander to their needs, or the Big Sky-daddy gets angry.

Obv.

Obviously the best solution is to just have a strip of land going straight through the US that's owned by no one and used just for immigrants to get to Canada.

Better yet, just turn all of the US into a no man's land illegal immigrant heaven.

Why not the Aussie aboriginals? Or the Maori? Sami? Or the Bretons? Or the Circassians? Or Chechnyans? We should give the Amish their homeland while we're at it. As well as Coptics, Neopagans and Zoroastrians. Then unwed pregnant teenage mothers and MtF trans*. But definitely not white male protestant cis-scum. Everyone gets their own nation! :la:

Do people really need a country with their name tag on, in order to settle down and start working for the society they leech off?

The Roma have their own land and it is called India.
