15,000 Pakistan refugees granted visa since '05 17.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Over 15,000 Pakistanis, mostly Hindus, seeking refuge in India have been granted Long-Term Visas (LTVs) since 2015 when the government relaxed norms allowing online applications. The number in the last three and a half years has exceeded that of the preceding four years between 2011 and 2014 when 14,726 visas were granted to Pakistanis. This year, 6,092 Pakistanis have been given LTVs, already going past last year's total tally of 4,712. An additional 1,500 applications from Pakistani nationals for LTVs are under considerations of the Home Ministry, officials said. A long-term visa is granted for a period of five years and can be extended. With 15,244 LTVs granted since 2015, the numbers have been on the rise every year after a liberalised visa policy of the Narendra Modi government was put in place. This was done to help minorities from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh who come to India after facing alleged persecution in their home country. In 2015, 2,142 Pakistani nationals were given long-term ...

US Judge orders government to provide mental health fund for over 2000 migrant children 13.7.2018 DNA: Opinion
A civil rights group asked a federal judge on Thursday to order the US government to provide mental health counselling for the around 2,000 immigrant children separated from their parents by officials at the US-Mexican border. The request by the American Civil Liberties Union follows a chaotic week for US immigration officials, who failed to meet a court-ordered deadline on Tuesday for reuniting children under the age of five. The government "must establish a fund to pay for professional mental health counselling, which will be used to treat children who are suffering from severe trauma as a result of their forcible separation from their parents," said the ACLU in court papers filed late Thursday. The group said the cost of the fund could be determined at a future date. The rights group brought the lawsuit that prompted U.S. Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego last month to order the government to reunite families separated at the border. The family separation policy was instituted as part of President Donald ...

Italy stops ship with migrants, turns up pressure on EU allies 10.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Italy has refused to allow a commercial vessel flying an Italian flag to bring ashore rescued migrants, apparently keeping up a hardline policy on new arrivals as it presses European allies to share the burden of hosting an influx of displaced people. A commercial ship that supplies oil platforms off the coast of Libya pulled 66 migrants to safety on Monday, but it was told not to bring them to Italy, an Interior Ministry source said. Transport Minister Danilo Toninelli said the migrants had been transferred to an Italian coast guard vessel on Tuesday. They will be brought to Italy, one source said, though the interior ministry source would not confirm. The commercial ship picked up the migrants though it had been told Libyan patrol boats were coming to retrieve them, the interior ministry source said. The move comes two days before a meeting of European interior ministers in the Austrian city of Innsbruck, where German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer wants his far-right Italian counterpart Matteo ...
