South Africans Setting Fire To Other African Migrants In Wave Of Xenophobic Attacks

Xenophobic violence is flaring once again in South Africa, where black South Africans are setting fire to other African migrants and attacking foreign-owned businesses.

“Rioters looted shops, created flaming barricades on roads and engaged in street fights with police, as attacks on immigrants and foreign-owned businesses increase,” reported RT.

“Some 50 businesses were looted and damaged on Sunday alone. It’s the second outbreak of such violence in the country in the space of a week.”

Shocking video shows black South Africans setting fire to other African migrants in the street.

Pray for foreigners in South Africa. No one deserves this.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are some crucial sister stories regarding these events, one appearing three days ago, and on in May of this year.

Here is the story from three days ago:

Years of impunity for xeonphonic crimes driving the latest attacks

The May story is reported as follows:

South Africa Has An Anti-Immigration Problem, And It Looks A Lot Like America's

With a crucial election looming, populist and nationalist rhetoric put forward by world leaders like President Trump is making xenophobia in South Africa worse.

The article then goes on to state the following: 'African nationals living in South Africa — whether as undocumented migrants, asylum-seekers, refugees, or citizens — have long struggled for full inclusion in society. But advocates say that their situation has worsened as elections approach and that the rise of global nationalism, particularly in the US from President Donald Trump, is to blame.

South Africans will cast their votes on May 8 in the first election since a massive corruption scandal took down the country’s last elected president, Jacob Zuma. Immigrant rights advocates worry not only that politicians will continue to use Africans as scapegoats but that the acts of violence committed against them will get worse in the so-called Rainbow Nation.'

But what Ms. Griffin has chosen to do, by blaming President Trump for tensions against both US and South African illegal immigrants, then conflating that concern against all legal immigrants in both the US and South Africa, is intellectually dishonest in the extreme, and let me document why.

Infectious diseases making Border Crisis Worse

And when illegal aliens become a part of the homeless population, there is real, factually documented, evidence is to what is happening here;

Why midieval diseases are hitting cities hard

Typhus and Tuberculosis spreading among America's homeless population

So why should all, or at least a good 99% of America's immigrants be "legal immigrants"?!? FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS:

Newly Arrived Immigrants and Refugees

The article then goes on to state:

'The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) mandates that all immigrants and refugees undergo a medical screening examination to identify inadmissible health conditions. An authorized panel physician in the applicant’s country of origin is responsible for performing the screening examination before departure. Applicants who adjust their immigration status after arriving in the United States undergo a medical screening by a civil surgeon.

A panel physician is a medical doctor practicing outside the United States who has an agreement with a US embassy or consulate general to conduct preimmigration medical screening examinations; >600 panel physicians perform these examinations internationally. A civil surgeon is a US physician authorized by US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to perform official immigration medical examinations required for the adjustment of status after arrival in the United States (the process of becoming a permanent US resident). The CDC Division of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ) issues Technical Instructions to panel physicians and civil surgeons and monitors the quality of the premigration medical examination process.

CDC also issues recommendations for pre­migration health interventions for special popu­lations, such as refugees (see www.cdc.gov/immigrantrefugeehealth/guidelines/overseas/overseas-guidelin...). Recommended health interventions (such as treatment for parasitic diseases) are not required under the INA but may be implemented based on level of risk in the origin country.'

Yes, on occasion, xenophobia is a convenient "flag to wave" against problems created by the presence of illegal aliens, because the government of the country making those charges, is either too lazy, or too impotent, to deal with the issues in a moral, compassionate, and meaningful way.

So I would like to politely caution Ms. Griffin that the only values which will ultimately save both the US and South Africa from the horrendous returns of diseases once thought to have been eradicated, are those of a thorough, and consistent application of medical logic to all immigrants and refugees in both countries.
