In April, 1999 ZetaTalk stated in their 1999 Predictions and again in September, 1999 ZetaTalk stated in the Next 3 1/2 Year predictions that migrations would increasingly occur as people tried to find refuge, someplace, as the cataclysms approached. One Troubled Times member noted this had occurred in his country, Slovenia, the following June, 2000, and news articles reported increased activity elsewhere around the world. By 2006, the US was having an immigration crisis.
- You will find human populations beginning to migrate. These migration not only happens in cases of severe starvation, such as in northern Africa south of the Sudan, where people just stumble like sticks in any direction, looking for food, but also occurs when things get bad enough, when crop shortages are bad, and people begin to wander. They're looking for something better. So you will have migrations and you will have guards against migrations. Rifles at the border, pointed and saying don't come a step further and shooting people for little reason. This is already starting to raise its head in the anxiety that the United States expresses about the people south of their borders.

Flood of Illegals Turns into a Tsunami
Mar 29, 2006, 04:34
Sen. Lindsey Graham hears about illegal immigration whenever he travels his home state of South Carolina. And for good reason. South Carolina, a state with historically few illegal immigrants, saw a 1,000 percent increase in their numbers from 1990 to 2004. With 55,000 undocumented residents, South Carolina ranks far behind the nation's leader, California. But the issue is boiling throughout the country as illegal immigrants make their way to more cities and states than ever.
Increasing Migrations Through Solvenia
June 7, 2000, Offered by Kristof
Slovenia is due to its geographic position a transit country for many (illegal) things, one of which are illegal refugees, escaping their homelands heading to Europe (their promised land). They come from eastern Europe (Romania), Middle East (Iraq, Iran, ...) and even Far East (China, ...). They are routinely captured by border control, however, in past years there were reports of a few captured here and there, now these reports are almost a daily issue, with larger groups captured. As reported yesterday on daily news, their numbers have increased 20 times this year!
Illegals at Arizona-Mexico border
Associated Press, June 6, 2000
In March, the Border Patrol arrested 76,245 illegal immigrants in the Tucson sector, which covers all but 50 miles (80 kilometers) of the Arizona-Mexico border. That puts the sector on pace to break an annual record of detaining more than 470,000 illegal immigrants. Federal authorities have increased patrols in California and Texas, forcing more border crossers to enter through Arizona. And stricter enforcement of the border near Arizona's urban areas is in turn pushing immigrants to try remote areas where they can find little water and must often endure temperatures climbing above 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius). Most are ill-prepared to survive.
Migrations from Morocco on the Rise
BBC News, July 26, 2000
2,000 people have drowned crossing from Africa to Europe in past decade. Diplomats say the traffic is acquiring the proportions of the crisis of the Vietnamese boat people in the 1980s. So far, Spanish police have caught four times more illegal entrants this year than last. Spain arrested 300 people sailing in two dinghies at sea recently Earlier this week, they notched their biggest haul on record, pulling more than 300 would-be migrants from the sea in a single day. Diplomats blame a second year of drought and economic slump in Morocco for the rise in numbers. And they also point to a flood of sub-Saharan Africans joining the exodus. The European Union is calling on Morocco to impose tough new border restrictions, but Morocco says it will not be Europe's policeman. It says massive foreign investment is required to deter its people from seeking a wealthier future in Europe.
Official: 15,000 Illegal Migrants Detained so far in 2000 in Ukraine
Associated Press, September 15, 2000
Ukraine's border guards have detained around 15,000 illegal migrants trying to cross into the country so far this year, and lost two servicemen in a clash with migrants and smugglers, the guards' commander said Friday. Most of the migrants were from the former Soviet republic of Kazakstan in Central Asia, said the official, Borys Aleksiyenko. Other illegal migrants have traditionally included people from such countries as India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and others. Ukraine has seen a growing influx of illegal migrants since the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union and a loosening of its border controls. Last year, 14,646 migrants were detained in Ukraine, up from 11,744 in 1998, according to the border guards' command. Aleksiyenko, whose comments were cited by the Interfax news agency, said two guards were killed in western Ukraine this year while trying to stop a group of migrants. He said the border guards planned to increase the number of its posts along Ukraine's borders to better keep out illegal migrants.
South America's Expanding Exodus
By Anthony Faiola, Washington Post, November 30, 2000
Passport agencies in Argentina are swamped with economic refugees desperate to leave a nation suffering its worse recession in a decade. The U.S. Embassy in Colombia is so overwhelmed by visa applications that the earliest appointments for interviews are in March 2002. In Ecuador, an estimated 500,000 people - 4 percent of the population - have quit the country in the past 24 months, gone mostly to Europe, but also to the United States and Canada. These are signs of what analysts, government officials and aid organizations are calling the largest exodus from South America in almost a decade. Spurred by economic and political crises, large numbers of South Americans are planting roots in foreign lands while sowing fears back home of a professional brain drain and broken families.
The United States, in particular, has become used to waves of immigrants - legal and otherwise, economic and political - from Mexico and Central America, amounting to 300,000 a year from Mexico alone. But now, although estimates are vague, it appears at least half that many have started to leave South America as well. The last time this continent experienced migration so large was at the end of the 1980s, when hyperinflation and drug and guerrilla wars crippled many countries. "This level of immigration from South America is something that the U.S. can support economically," said James Lindsay, an immigration specialist and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. "Of course, if the economy in the U.S. takes a turn for the worse, you probably won't see as warm a reception. But for the time being, from a U.S. point of view, this does not appear to be a problem."
