CAIRO- Cairo police today detained three illegal aliens, including a newborn baby boy, after the family made a harrowing journey across the desert from Judea.
“We cannot accept this continuous flow of illegal aliens from our neighbor,” said Cairo Mayor Loumak Barlakhom. “These illegals are destroying the fabric of our city.”
Barlakhom dismissed the family’s pleas for political asylum and the father’s offer to assist the city in construction. The father stated that his name is Joseph, but illegals are known to use aliases. “Joseph” claimed that he has carpentry skills.
“If we allow this man from Judea to work here, he will be stealing a job from a hard-working Egyptian,” Barlakhom said.
The family claimed that they feared for their lives as King Herod had sent killing squads into Bethlehem to murder newborn boys and asked the Egyptian government to grant them asylum under the Convention Against Torture. The Egyptians, however, dismissed their claim after receiving “diplomat assurances” from Herod that the family would not be harmed.
“We take Herod at his word that the family will not be harmed in any way,” said Egyptian Minister of State Code Raziya.
On the streets, average Egyptians had little sympathy for the family’s plight.
“What part of illegal don’t they understand,” asked one merchant. “They should get in line, just like everyone else.”
“Today we give this illegal alien a job, and tomorrow he’ll be asking for in-state tuition for his kid,” added another merchant.
