Obama Admin: 'Jesus was a Refugee'

The man who heads the federal agency responsible for many of the 50,000 unaccompanied alien children from Central America who have entered the U.S. illegally in recent months told attendees at a conference on Tuesday that those working with refugees should look to Jesus Christ as a role model.

“Jesus was a refugee, and that’s a very good reminder to all of us,” Eskinder Negash, director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), said at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) 2014 Migration Conference in Washington, D.C.

In the case of unaccompanied alien children, U.S. law requires that those who do not come from a contiguous country, i.e. Mexico or Canada, be transferred to the custody of ORR where they will be reunited with family or placed elsewhere until deportation proceedings can be completed. ...

Most of the silly comments made by modern liberal pseudo Christians start out with "Jesus was"....wrong,Jesus is and he is many things that would surprise you,for starters Jesus came to fulfill the law not do away with it.

Carl of Greensburo, you might have gathered I'm not the flaming liberal that some may accuse me of being here. I have at times mentioned Glen Beck's (A Baptist turned Mormon ) but I'm not all that hostile to his there I mentioned it. You want to see one country that decided to stem the invasion of illegal immigrants, just take a look at Australia, Australia is lucky to have a huge moat around it. Something that the Liberal government didn't make proper use of. Like America, Australia became a convenient dumping ground for excess populations.

the UN is wanting to call migrants and people migrating illegal as "refugees" - because they have opened to borders, are erasing them, which is been a long term goal of the UN, from what I can gather. Then the movement of people, who are moving illegally through transportation by DHS, is now an international concern and perhaps, as americans are lining up in cities trying to stop the buses, the UN can then call this an international event and police the situation.

O is just muddying the water. They have their plans are carrying them out with gusto.

Wow! That's all he's got to say about Jesus? That's probably the highest he'll speak about Christ is that he was a refugee.
You'll probably never hear em tell the world that he's LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.

Carl, not wars as such, but some central American countries have drug gangs every bit as vicious as those in Mexico.
Thanks Jim
I am aware that there have been drug cartels in C.A. for many decades and don't want to minimize that fact. But have they grown so bad that hundreds of thousands of kids are crossing the length of Mexico to come here? I don't think the crisis there is manufactured but I really think it is overblown and is being taken advantaged of by the Dems and and Pres. Why haven't a greater influx of Mexican kids come over by themselves when we know how vicious the cartels are there. I would like to see more independent news observers verify the humanitarian crisis rather than the usual liberal outlets (such as the NY Times) who are in bed with this admin. & the Dems. We all should be skeptical when they all spout the same liberal mantra "Never let a good crisis go to waste."

No He wasn't.
He was an unemployed carpenter and itinerant minister in His own country among His own people and on His own planet which He helped create.

Here is Negash's story:

"Born in Ethiopia in 1956, Eskinder Negash enjoyed a happy childhood with his 12 brothers and sisters – but that changed in 1974, when Emperor Haile Selassie was removed from power by a Soviet-backed military coup.

The communist regime executed dozens of Ethiopian leaders and persecuted potential opponents.

In 1980, Negash fled alone to Sudan , where he became the International Rescue Committee’s (IRC) first staff member in that part of the country.

Later, sponsored by the IRC, he was admitted to the U.S. and posted to the IRC office in Los Angeles . He graduated from Cal State University, and held a series of high positions with California-based refugee agencies and support groups.

He is now Director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services." (ref.

Looks like Negash came over legally. He must be referring to Jesus' brief sojourn in Egypt. I wouldn't exactly call that refugee status since the family went to Egypt with a treasure of gold, frankincense and myrrh and then (more importantly) RETURNED after His persecutors died.

I believe Negash truly has a heart for refugees but his boss has another agenda.

Question: Is their any hard news on war in Central America?

Jesus wasn't a refugee.... He lived and moved freely about his own country and land.
It is obvious Negash does not even know who Jesus is or was.
