Amos’ case again shows how cock S’poreans are

(Breaking news at 111.00am: Amos is really a born loser. US immigration is detaining Boy Fantastic necause it’s appealing. S/o JBJ is KPKBing. See below.

The anti-PAP cybernuts are using the immigration judge’s decision to gloat and sneer at the system that 70% of S’poreans voted for in free but unfair elections.

They should sit down and shut up.

Let’s wait and see if the US immigration appeals, and if so the final judgement.

Something for them to think about at least for those with brains: What if the final judgment is that he isn’t being persecuted? Will all the anti-PAPpies gloating change their minds about what they think about life in S’pore?

I doubt it. They’ll find another excuse to diss what 70% (and more) of S’poreans are comfortable with.

Likewise the whities should sit down and shut up about dissing the US. If the US decides not to give him asylum, will they return to fawning on the US?

S/o of JBJ’s KPKBing on FB:

Breaking news: Amos Yee is still being held in detention. This is highly unusual and dubious in the extreme. For those of you not familiar with how asylum works let me explain.

Before the hearing Amos was an asylum seeker. Asylum seekers can lawfully be kept in detention. Amos Yee’s asylum bid was successful was successful and the minute Judge Coles ruled that Asylum was granted, Amos Yee’s legal status changed from asylum seeker to “Refugee”.

Amos-the-stateless-asylum-seeker become Amos-the-American-refugee awarded protections under domestic US as well as International law. As a refugee he is immediately granted those rights under US Law as well as being granted rights under the UN Convention on Refugees. Those rights accorded him mean he shouldn’t be detained.

You may have heard that ICE plan to appeal the asylum decision and that this is being used as a pretext to keep Amos in detention. I use the word pretext because there is no provision in the Nationality and Immigration Act for ICE to detain anyone already granted asylum, even pending an appeal.

Amos now has rights and these rights are clearly being breached. As such the detention is arbitrary without basis and unlawful.

I will update you further when I hear from his lawyers. Mary Toh must be extremely concerned.

Upon release there is a good network in place in Chicago of friends and activists to support Amos with a place to live and so on. He would also be able to apply for some limited refugee financial relief. Let’s hope they release him soon and that there is not any underhand political plot behind the continued detention.
