(PARIS) LATEST: A Rwandan man has been arrested on suspicion of killing a Roman Catholic priest in western France #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.11: The unnamed suspect, a failed asylum seeker housed by the priest, turned himself in and confessed, reports say: The 40-year-old man is also suspected of starting a fire that seriously damaged the cathedral in nearby Nantes in July last year….

#AceDailyNews says that a suspect in Nantes cathedral fire has been held over French priest’s killing after the body of Olivier Maire was found in the village of Saint-Laurent-sur-Sèvre in the Vendée area on Monday morning.

French President Emmanuel Macron praised the “generosity” of Fr Maire and said his thoughts were with all Catholics in France.

Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin echoed those sentiments and visited the area later in the day.The killing has sparked political debate about why the suspect was still in France.

On Twitter Mr Darmanin criticised a post by far-right politician Marine Le Pen, who asked why the man suspected over the Nantes fire had not been deported.Mr Darmanin said that although the asylum request had been rejected, the suspect could not be expelled while being investigated on charges of arson: French reports say the suspect was involved in the fire at Nantes cathedral in July 2020:

The suspect, who worked as a volunteer warden at the cathedral, was charged after reportedly admitting to starting the fire…………..He was detained until May this year and later transferred to a psychiatric hospital. Fr Maire, 60, had been welcoming the man into his church for several months, French media say.

Sister Dorothee Harushinana told Reuters news agency that the priest “close to the people. You could always call on him.”Last year’s fire destroyed stained glass windows and the grand organ in the cathedral. It came months after the devastating 2019 fire at the Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris.The blaze destroyed stained glass windows and the grand organ..

(WASHINGTON) Immigration Dept Report: Asylum and other legal migration pathways should be readily available to those who need them, and this Administration is committed to fairly and efficiently considering asylum claims #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.01: Consistent with that approach, the Department of Homeland Security today resumed expedited removal flights for certain families who recently arrived at the southern border, cannot be expelled under Title 42, and do not have a legal basis to stay in the United States. Families apprehended by Customs and Border Protection were removed via U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Air Operations to their home countries of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.

#AceDailyNews reports on the DHS Statement: On expedited removal flights for certain families and those not seeking protection or who do not qualify will be promptly returned to their country of origin.

The expedited removal process is a lawful means to securely manage our border, and it is a step toward our broader aim to realize safe and orderly immigration processing. By placing into expedited removal families who cannot be expelled under Title 42, we are making clear that those who do not qualify to remain in the United States will be promptly removed.

The Biden-Harris Administration is working to manage safe, orderly, and humane migration in North and Central America, including by expanding lawful pathways to the United States. DHS recently expanded the Central American Minors program and made 6,000 H-2B visas available for Central Americans.

Irregular migration to the United States is dangerous and may carry long-term immigration consequences. The journey is especially dangerous for families and children, including teenagers.

(AUSTRIA) Asylum Seekers Report: Who have long outgrown their teenage years are making themselves younger for good reason: Anyone who is considered a minor increases their chances of asylum or subsidiary protection #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.25: Lawyer Flatz asks the legitimate question why the age of asylum seekers without ID is not medically checked. It has already been shown several times that people like to cheat regarding their age….

#AceDailyNews says that a migrant who raped and murdered 13-year-old girl is 20, not 16 as he claimed but could use it to apply for asylum but now the country is getting wise to this rouse a problem that people in Austria are aware of ? ………and will be preventing according to a ‘Tweet of The Day’ Medically prove the age of young asylum seekers? Why not!,” translated from “Tweet des Tages: Bei jungen Asylwerbern das Alter medizinisch nachweisen? Warum nicht!,” Exxpress, July 23, 2021 (thanks to Medforth):

“The most recent conjecture. The perpetrator at #Leonie is not 16, but 20 years old. It is typical that the majority of asylum seekers make themselves younger in order to increase their chances of #asylum and in order to bring their families home.

The age of everyone must finally be medically checked!”…………..

(DENMARK) #MigrantCrisis Report: Lawmakers have passed legislation as MPs voted for the bill by 70 votes to 24 allowing it to relocate asylum seekers to third countries outside the EU while their cases are reviewed #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.05: But the European Commission said it had concerns about the law, and a leading NGO said it was irresponsible:

Denmark Asylum: Law passed to allow offshore centres: The project, proposed by the Social Democrat-led government, would seek partner countries to run camps and fund agencies along migration routes as more countries consider the same move

Demonstrations against plan to deport Syrian refugees - April
Recent moves to revoke residence status for Syrian refugees sparked protests

Denmark has repeatedly tightened its immigration policies in recent years.

This follows a peak of more than 21,000 asylum seekers arriving in Denmark in 2015.

EPA: Denmark’s tough immigration policies began after record numbers of migrants arrived in 2015

“If you apply for asylum in Denmark, you know that you will be sent back to a country outside Europe, and therefore we hope that people will stop seeking asylum in Denmark,” said government spokesman Rasmus Stoklund, quoted by Reuters news agency.

The asylum cases would be reviewed in the third country and the applicant could potentially be given protection in that country.

But the European Commission was critical of the law.

“External processing of asylum claims raises fundamental questions about both the access to asylum procedures and effective access to protection,” said spokesman Adalbert Jahnz, quoted by Reuters news agency.

The Danish Refugee Council (DRC), a leading NGO, said in a statement that MPs had “effectively voted in the blind”, as the model they had backed did not yet exist. 

“The idea to externalise the responsibility of processing asylum seekers’ claims is both irresponsible and lacking in solidarity. We have repeatedly called on the Danish members of parliament to reject this bill,” it said.

The council added that there was now a risk of countries hosting larger numbers of refugees would also opt out.

Denmark recently signed a migration deal with Rwanda leading to speculation that it intends to open a facility there.

Two weeks ago it became the first European country to revoke residence status for more than 200 Syrian refugees.

Danish authorities say parts of Syria are safe enough to return to but the move has sparked protests from activists and community groups.

Last year the UK considered building an asylum processing centre on Ascension Island, a remote territory in the Atlantic Ocean, but decided not to proceed.

Australia has also caused controversy in recent years with its use of camps for processing asylum seekers in Nauru and Papua New Guinea.

(LONDON) High Court Report: The Home Office’s decision to house cross-channel migrants in a ‘Army Barracks’ in Folkestone was unlawful, it was ruled #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.05: The ruling could see a damages claim against Home Secretary Priti Patel: The Home Office said use of the barracks would continue, and it was considering its “next steps”.

Napier Army Barracks: Housing migrants was unlawful, court rules: Six asylum seekers brought the case, claiming it was “unsafe” and dormitory use caused a #COVID19 outbreak earlier this year.

17 hours ago

Napier barracks
The court heard public health experts had repeatedly raised concerns about the use of the site during a pandemic

The judgment could lead to further cases from any other men held at the camp who can bring similar evidence to court.

Mr Justice Linden’s judgment looked in detail at a fire that broke out at the site in January, and when nearly 200 people contracted coronavirus during an outbreak at the camp.

PA MediaLawyers have made fresh calls for the site to close and said hundreds of people are still living there

The ruling followed hearings that took place in April.

The judge said: “I do not accept that the accommodation there ensured a standard of living which was adequate for the health of the claimants.

“Insofar as the defendant considered that the accommodation was adequate for their needs, that view was irrational.”

Analysis

By Dominic Casciani, home and legal correspondent, BBC News

One of the crucial questions about Napier is why it was allowed to open in the way it did, given Public Health England (PHE) had warned the Home Office the dorms would not be suitable.

During the High Court hearing in April, there was no witness statement from PHE or Clearsprings – the Home Office contractor running the site – about how a plan was developed to manage Covid-19 risks.

The judge found civil servants appreciated the risks existed, but it’s not clear how they took on board the “significant problem” PHE warned of, given they also needed to get the best value of money out of the site. 

The “bottom line”, said the judge, was the arrangements were contrary to PHE advice and did not even implement measures which the Home Secretary herself had apparently regarded as desirable and feasible.

Read more from Dominic here.

Mr Justice Linden also criticised the “detention-like” setting for the men.

He said: “They were supposed to live voluntarily pending a determination of their applications for asylum.

“When this is considered, a decision that accommodation in a detention-like setting – a site enclosed by a perimeter fence topped with barbed wire, access to which is through padlocked gates guarded by uniformed security personnel – will be adequate for their needs, begins to look questionable.”

Following the ruling, campaigners, including human rights group Liberty, Refugee Action and the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants, called for the immediate closure of the site.

Liberty lawyer Lara Ten Caten said: “The government’s only response can be to close it down immediately.”

Refugee Action and the JCWI accused the government of being reckless with people’s lives.

Yvette Cooper, home affairs select committee chairwoman, said Ms Patel and the Permanent Secretary told the committee in February the Home Office was working “in line with public health guidance”.

She said: “Clearly they were not. We have called on them both to come back before the committee at the earliest opportunity to explain the decisions they made and also the contradictions with the information they previously gave us in light of today’s court ruling.”Men still living at the site said conditions were inhumane

Men living at the barracks told the BBC conditions were inhumane. 

One man, speaking through the fence at the site, said there was no hot water or electricity and only one shower for 100 people.

PA Media: The former military site has been used by the Home Office since September 2020

Lawyers from Deighton Pierce Glynn (DPG) had claimed the site – which they said still housed more than 265 people – had breached the migrants’ human rights. 

The firm said despite emptying the barracks in early April 2021 and amid ongoing concerns from public health officials that the site could not be made Covid-19 secure, the Home Secretary began refilling the site.

DPG said residents are sleeping in dormitories of up to 12 people and lawyers understood the intention was to fill the barracks to over 300.

In April, the court heard public health experts had repeatedly raised concerns about the use of the site during a pandemic, while an independent report found seven suicide attempts and seven incidents of serious self-harm.

ICIBIIn March, inspectors said a “decrepit” isolation block was unfit for habitation

Failings at the barracks included:

  • Overcrowding
  • Lack of ventilation
  • Run-down buildings
  • Use of communal dormitories during a pandemic
  • Significant fire risks
  • ‘Filthy’ facilities
  • ‘Decrepit’ isolation block not fit for habitation

Military asylum seeker sites ‘filthy and run-down’

ICIBIAn inspection earlier this year also raised concerns about dormitory-style accommodation

Tom Hickman QC, representing four claimants, previously told the court the site was “squalid, ill-equipped, lacking in personal privacy and unsafe”. 

Lisa Giovannetti QC, representing the Home Office, said clinically vulnerable people had been “sifted out”.

She said Ms Patel had decided the barracks could be used safely by “introducing safeguards”.

But in a statement read to the court, one of the claimants, who was later moved to other accommodation, said: “The situation in the camp is very bad and degrading.” 

“Detainees in the barracks including myself have lost hope.”

PA MediaNearly 200 asylum seekers tested positive during a Covid-19 outbreak

The judge declined to rule the barracks could never be used to house asylum seekers, but called for “substantial improvements”.

The Home Office and the six men have yet to agree on damages.

A Home Office spokesman said: “During the height of the pandemic, to ensure asylum seekers were not left destitute, additional accommodation was required at extremely short notice: Such accommodation provided asylum seekers a safe and secure place to stay. Throughout this period our accommodation providers and sub-contractors have made improvements to the site and continue to do so: It is disappointing that this judgment was reached on the basis of the site prior to the significant improvement works which have taken place in difficult circumstances.”

#Germany : ” Boy of Thirteen Arrested for `Arson After Setting Fire to an Asylum’ whilst Working for Youth Fire Department”

#AceWorldNews German police say they have arrested a 13-year-old boy for setting fire to an asylum home in the city of Hamburg, killing a woman from Pakistan and her two children, AP reports.

The boy, who is a member of the city’s youth fire department, was identified through surveillance footage and witness accounts, says police spokesman Andreas Schoepflin.

The child admitted to the crime when approached by police on Friday night and was taken to hospital for evaluation. Police say he was not motivated by racist or anti-migrant sentiment.

Apart from the dead, 27 other people were injured when the blaze was sparked on Wednesday.
