Asylum seekers from SA: case studies 2011

Update from Louisiana, USA: A low-wage earning SA-born Afrikaner, single dad of two small children, faces extradiction to Johannesburg: lived in USA since early teens;  unfamiliar with SA ‘s very violently-criminal culture; as a white man also excluded from the SA job-market by law;  with no immediate family network to support him in South Africa: he stll faces being sent back to the violent streets of Johannesburg…having to leave his sons behind with his parents: who are US citizens…

January 11 2012 – Many ‘white’ asylum seekers from South Africa have successfully used the many tens of thousands of recorded  incidents of very violent attacks against ‘whites’ in SA as the main reason why they should not have to return: not being street-wise, such expat South Africans’ lives would be in extreme danger. We are aware of at least 600 such cases worldwide where succesful applications were lodged, and several hundred are still pending.

One particularly awful case we were informed about this week, is presently pending in the state of Louisiana. A young single father of Afrikaner descent  – the son of naturalised USA citizens of Afrikaner descent  who has lived in the USA since his early teens; and  is totally unfamiliar with South African culture – now is awaiting his extradiction-hearing to South Africa in March: forcing this single father to seperate from the two small children he adores: who are now under the care of the grandparents.

A similar case occurred in Ireland — Dianne Louise Jefferson, 22, granted a five-year residency permit in 2009 after submitting court-documents in which she said she  ‘feared for her life if she were to be deported to South Africa”. She maintained that ‘White Females were Unsafe in South Africa’; submitting the high rape-levels in the country.  However she also feared that she would be at risk due to racial discrimination if deported from Ireland; and also that she would be ‘abandoned’ there, as she had no immediate family left there, would be a cultural stranger there. Not being street-wise to the criminal violence in the country, such exiled South Africans, forced to return without a family network to fall back on, would soon fall victim to criminal violence:

White South African asylum seekers, case studies per country:

CASE STUDIES OF WHITE ENGLISH-SPEAKING SOUTH AFRICANS/ AFRIKANERS WHO HAVE LODGED SUCCESSFUL ASYLUM APPLICATIONS IN VARIOUS WESTERN COUNTRIES – DESPITE FREQUENT, MASSIVE INTERFERENCE BY ANC-REGIME INTO THE PERSONAL RIGHTS OF SA CITIZENS: 

ANC regime lodged a formal objection to the ruling in Canada to grant political asylum to Brandon Huntley, a white man from Cape Town — after an immigration board ruled he face persecution from black people if he returned to South Africa.  The ruling prompted the country’s ANC government to lodge a massive demonisation campaign against Huntley and to also accuse Canada of racism. Mr Huntley’s case still has not been resolved as a result of this direct interference by the ANC-regime.

This summary does not contain legal advice. We do however include several case studies of recent successful asylum applications by white South Africans at the bottom of this page as a guide. We also provide important considerations in seeking asylum, including ten key recommendations, statistics from countries of refuge, and a complete explanation of the  all-important “Dublin II” limitations in Europe.  Repeat: this is  NOT legal advice. It is provided for general information only. As a matter of fact, the very first thing you should do if considering such a route, is to FIRST directly speak with a lawyer BEFORE taking any action. Many of the most important details can be found on         http://www.asylumlaw.org/firstaid/.

 Very high levels of violence – including sexual violence against males and females – remains high  against white South Africans – especially when the low proportional demographic representation of ‘whites’ ( ranging from less than 1% in KwaZulu-Natal and  Gauteng to 9.5% in the Western Cape )  is considered. It has been noted on an independent website run by criminologists that 99% of the recorded violent attacks recorded against ‘whites’ are perpetuated by black residents in South Africa:  map on January 11 2012:

Females and Males subjected to high levels of rape in South Africa:

It must be noticed that since that case, the South African government has changed its definition of rape, now referring to it as ‘sexual violence’ and also including reports of incidents of rapes against male victims in its annual statistics. These sexual-violence cases remain high:

Her case was represented via Sollicitor Capt (ret.) Owen Swaine: Nr 14 Father Griffin Road, Galway, County Galway, Ireland telephone (091)861382. http://www.swainesolicitors.com/  email: owen@swainesolicitors.com

“Fear of criminal racist discrimination, fear for her wellbeing and ultimately her life: – White Females Unsafe in South Africa ”, as reported by journalist Louise Hogan, The Independent. Tuesday September 22 2009: and Chris Irvine, The Telegraph, 8 Oct 2009:

– Ms Jefferson, a white South African has claimed her life may be at risk due to racial discrimination if she is deported from Ireland. Up to that point, she was  the 47th ‘white’ South Africans who bid for refugee-status in Ireland since 1994.

No immediate family left in South Africa: she would be a stranger in South Africa, would effectively be abandoned there; and not being ‘street-wise’ to high-crime conditions, also would soon fall prey to criminals:

Dublin High Court bid: Dianne Louise Jefferson (22), who works as a product builder with Boston Scientific in Galway, launched a legal bid at Dublin’s High Court to remain in the (European-Union) State.  Judge Elizabeth Dunne granted an interim injunction preventing the state immigration services from arresting, detaining or transferring Ms Jefferson, who at that time lived in Doughiska, County Galway. “I say and believe that as a white South African there is a real possibility of criminal racial discrimination against me and I fear for my well-being and ultimately my life if I am returned,” the court heard directly from Ms Jefferson’s affidavit.

Miss Jefferson stated in her affidavit: “I say and believe that as a white South African there is a real possibility of criminal racial discrimination against me and I fear for my wellbeing and ultimately my life if I am returned”. The judge granted her an injunction stopping immigration authorities from deporting her, and gave her  a five-year residency visa.

 

Owen Swaine, Miss Jefferson’s lawyer, said his client, who lives in Doughiska, County Galway, had no immediate family left in South Africa.”Her apprehension in returning is two fold,” he said. “One is she’s been in Ireland as a child, has no family connections and would be a stranger in South Africa. She is of limited financial means and if deported would effectively be abandoned there, and a female abandoned in any area of the world is more likely to fall victim to crime.”In addition to that, being a South African, she takes a keen interest and has read about the wide level of violent crime, which heightens her fear of returning as a young woman.”

She left South Africa on June 1, 2002, following the death of her grandmother and moved to Ireland to be with her father. During her seven years living in Ireland, (as quoted by Hogan), Ms Jefferson completed her Junior and Leaving Certificate, studied at college, married and took up a job as a product builder with Boston Scientific in 2006. On September 16 Ms Jefferson lodged the case after she was notified by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service that her application for a resident’s card was refused. She was informed her permission would expire on September 20 2009 and after that date she would be an illegal resident. She says she was advised to “go home”. The court heard she has instructed her solicitor to apply for Irish citizenship on the basis of her marriage. In 2005, at the age of 18, she married Kevin Curran.The court heard Mr Curran was forced to move to the Netherlands in search of a full-time job because of the poor economic situation at that time – but regularly returns to spend time with his wife. “ Ms Jefferson was granted political asylum, recorded Chris Irvine of The Telegraph on 8 Oct 2009.

More than 600 official white SA refugees worldwide by Dec 2011:
Ireland forms part of the European-Union community: due to their close cultural affinity with the continent, many hundreds of thousands of ‘white’ South Africans have already settled legally in greater-Europe since 1994. Increasingly, asylum-seekers are also amongst them, mainly due to the dramatic increase in armed attacks targetting this small. very visible minority group in SA.


This fact came to light recently when Brandon Huntley, a white SA asylum-seeker, while he was granted formal refuge in Canada, stating in his application that his life would be in danger if he were forced to return, the ANC-regime actively intervened by raising the issue with the Canadian government and lodging formal objections – interfering in the rights of one of their citizens to live whereever they chose to live.  As a result, Mr Huntley’s case caused a storm of outrage in ANC-government circles and in turn, from these sources a massive demonisation campaign in the news media against him was mounted personally. However, Huntley wasn’t the first white South African to be granted political asylum there: Canada has also granted asylum to a further 32 South Africans thus far since 1994.

Specifically for Afrikaners, there are also unique medical reasons for obtaining asylum: and several Afrikaners have obtained asylum in the low sunlight regin of Canada: namely the fact that many Afrikaner families suffer from  familial porphyria: an often deadly sensitivity to sunlight:

Up to August 2011, more than 600 white South Africans lived as approved political refugees across the world. Some reasons for asylum are however also medical:  several Afrikaans families have literally fled from South Africa’s abundant sunlight: they were granted permanent refuge because they suffer from familial porphyria – an potentially deadly, extreme sensitivity to sunlight which occurs often in Afrikaner families.  These porphyria-sufferers were allowed to resettle in a small northern Canadian town which has the lowest number recorded sunlight hours per year and reportedly they now are thriving and contributing to the economy as new settlers. Up to August 2011, there were a known 170 South Africans with legal refugee status in Germany, 111 in the USA, 46 in Ireland, 33 in Canada, 24 in the UK, 18 in France and 15 in Australia. (From our information, it is also believed that some ten applications are also pending in New Zealand.) http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2011/08/asylum-seekers-info-per-country.html

Farmitracker.com Attacks against ‘whites’ in countryside and in the cities: from January 2010 up to and including January 10 2012:

January 11 2012 — The number of of violent attacks, incidents of racist hate-speech and hate-crimes against ‘whites’ , are the highest in Gauteng province around greater Johannesburg/Pretoria, with 801 such incidents logged since January 2010 against ‘whites’ in South Africa.

As can be seen from the map below from http://www.farmitracker.com on January 11 2012, these armed attacks (99% carried out by armed black males, often screaming racist hate-speech, often accompanying their attacks with rape (against males and females) and often carrying out extensive torture against their victims, are inflicting such serious trauma-injuries, as described by the SA Trauma Society, that ‘these trauma-injuries treated by our medical personnel in South African hospitals can be compared to being identical to such injuries seen in war-zones and areas where civil war is raging“.

JOB OPPORTUNIES IN SOUTH AFRICA IN 2011 – note:  WHITES ARE BARRED UNDER THE SOCALLED BROAD-BASED BLACK ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT LAWS OF THE ANC –REGIME

  • turning the entire white minority ‘unemployable’ under this new law-amendment from 2013… 

KEEPING in mind that none of these jobs listed on this page are available to WHITE South African males — and that under the latest Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment law amendment now pending for approval – not only WHITE MALES, but also WHITE FEMALES would be barred from the vast majority of the above-mentioned jobs in South Africa. “White women will become the biggest losers’ headlined the ANC-newspaper New Age triumphantly, describing these amendments to the latest new anti-white job-exclusion laws in South Africa. White men have been excluded for past decade already and the Afrikaner women had kept their families alive since 2004. Now this last way for Afrikaner families to survive has also been closed off. Ms Gaongalelwe Tiro, a reporter at the ANC’s own newspaper New Age, noted with considerable joy that ‘white women would be the biggest losers” — once the broad-based black economic empowerment amendment bill was enacted as expected early next year. Ths both white males and white females ar effectively ‘eliminated’ from the job market. An entire nation, reduced to permanent homelessness, poverty and denied access to the job market. A lot in fact, like the nazis did to the Jews of Germany from 1923: barring the Jews from earning any kind of survival living under the Nüremberg laws.]

JOB AVAILABILITY IN SOUTH AFRICA, JANUARY 2012: 1-million government jobs; 3-million private-sector jobs; job market barred to whites; and 14,1million black welfare recipients…

With SA handing out 14.9million welfare grants costing R9,539 each annually, only 11.1% of these recipients will accept a job…

Government handouts have had a marked negative effect on the desire to work. Grants in South Africa amount to approximately R1,150 per month. 10.2 million South Africans – approximately 1 in 5 – receive grants of one form or another, amounting to 14.9 million grants or 1.5 grants per recipient, yielding average transfers of R9,539 per beneficiary per annum.  And only 11.1% of those people on grants will accept a job: unemployed people are more likely to remain out of work if supported by social grants and welfare.

http://www.politicsweb.co.za/politicsweb/view/politicsweb/en/page72308?oid=274464&sn=Marketingweb+detail&pid=90389

(child support grants amount to R260 per child per month), and the means-tested upper annual income threshold varies from R31,000 per person (in the case of child support) to R752,400 per person (in the case of older persons).

Statistics SA’s Quarterly Labour Force Survey provides startling confirmation of these effects. As indicated in the table, 43.3% of unemployed people are willing to accept a job, if offered, when they are supported by their own savings, whereas only 11.1% of people will accept a job if they are supported by social grants and welfare. Unemployed people are also more likely to remain out of work if they are supported by social grants and welfare: the average duration of unemployment is 16 months for people who do not receive grants, compared to 21 months for people who do.

Trade unions also have a powerful influence over the desire to work. Unions behave in a similar manner to cartels: they drive up wages for their members, limit the availability of jobs to new entrants, and punish non-observance of union rules through violence, intimidation and regulatory capture (including union-friendly laws that make union membership and/or financial contributions mandatory).

By driving up members’ incomes, unions discourage work by increasing their members’ demand for leisure time and sociable working hours (since the desire for leisure rises with income). Statistics SA no longer reports worker income and union membership together, so it is impossible to test some notable hypotheses, but as of 2007 union members earned R6,945 per month (compared to R4,827 per annum for non-unionized workers), representing a union wage premium of 44%.

Even adjusting for educational attainment and work experience, the wage premium for unionized workers is 32%. Unionized workers work roughly the same number of hours per week as non-unionized workers (42.8 hours vs. 42.5 hours), but unionized workers are less willing to perform additional work: only 9.3% of unionized workers (as opposed to 17.8% of non-unionized workers) are prepared to work additional hours in a given week; and, of those who will do so, unionized workers are prepared to work an additional 0.9 hours per week (as opposed to 2.4 hours per week for non-unionized workers).

HIghly-qualified Whites are far less likely than blacks to find a job within 12 months of initiating a job search:

Affirmative action has exceedingly poor consequences for the desire to work in South Africa. As indicated in the table, highly qualified whites are substantially less likely than blacks to find a job within 12 months of initiating a job search.

For job-seekers with a tertiary qualification, blacks are 34% more likely to find work than whites ever are.

This has, no doubt, contributed to the substantially higher percentage of whites operating their own businesses: whites are nearly three times more likely than blacks to establish their own businesses. To the extent that business owners earn more than employees over their lifetimes, affirmative action may have had the unintended consequence of raising white incomes relative to blacks.

Indeed, business owners’ share of national income has increased from 39.9% in 1995 to 47.2% in 2011, while employees’ share has correspondingly declined. At the same time, affirmative action, by raising the probability that black graduates find work, has artificially raised the demand for tertiary education among blacks.

Yet the university system has failed to produce graduates in business-oriented fields: there are currently nearly 600,000 unemployed university graduates in South Africa, mostly in the arts, humanities and social sciences, whereas the private sector has more than 800,000 vacancies in management, engineering, law, finance, accounting and medicine which however have to be filled under the very severe anti-white job-restrictions laid down by the ANC-regime’s broad-based black-economic empowerment laws: in other words, ‘whites need not apply’…

  2. Heinrich74226@gmail.com says:

    I have consulted so many lawyers in the UK and they all say I shouldn’t even bother trying to claim asylum as it won’t be successful because I am a white 34yr old male. I have no immediate family, is financially dependant on my family in UK, suffer from Bi-polar type 2 and have tried to commit suicide several times because of being alone in SA and being gay also made my life hell. So what else to do but kill myself and be done with it!

  3. morne says:

    Thank you to the person that wrote this article. I’m a well educated 38 year old white male and would love to call it a day here in SA because of the hate towards white people here. Hate that has been created from before I was able to vote. I can immigrate yes, but there are allot of white people that do not have the financial means of doing so.

    Our generation and the ones to come are paying the price for the enrichment of Germany, the Netherlands and the UK through colonialism. All about slave trade and minerals. The same money that is still in their system today. Surely they can see what hate has been created through their actions and surely they can realize that white people have no home here in SA. Another slaughtered white family in the news is nothing new in the papers. They sing and chant “kill the Boer” on a daily bases and they are being killed on farms all the time. Singing they will take back their land, organised Genocide to say the least. It’s getting worse everyday. White people are not allowed to work at most organisations due to the BBE law passed by the ruling ANC regime. Yet they say we are now all equal.

    The politicians use the hate speech to gather votes, it’s scary what they promise the people. White land, white homes..drive the whites into the sea. We merely observe the political wave like sitting ducks. We know that even if they take all of our houses (5 million perhaps if each white person had a house) there will still be a population of 50 million black people that needs housing. The black people do not see this. They only see the politician’s promises of wealth.

    The above mentioned countries must realize that they left behind their own offspring. Offspring that thrived, going to universities, opening businesses etc. not hopeless individuals. At last a form of refugee that will contribute to the economy and will look great on your refugee statistics.

    We were born on this land yet we are being killed like pests, driven out of the economic system and reminded everyday that we are not welcome in this place called South Africa.

    When some of us tried to brake away from the crime, corruption, horror attacks and hate speech some formed a town called Oranje in the middle of nowhere. They ask nothing but to be left alone. They are self sustained and just wanted to have peace. This, according to the EFF party, is also not right. They will no longer exist when EFF comes to rule. I ask you what on earth must we do?

    I don’t know who will ever read this but if you do, remember we were once one of you. And we live like this every single day. In fear of tomorrow, will we be next to be slaughtered because of our father’s sins? Will you lave this gene pool to be extinguished by the haters or will you help them? What is the difference between us and the Jews. Did we not promise each other that this will never happen again?

    It’s not right.
