The First North Korean Defectors Escape to the US
Previously, all North Korean defectors were taken to South Korea, where they are kept under tight government control, and often face discrimination. They are rarely allowed to speak of their experiences in North Korea since the current SK government's official policy, called "The Sunshine Policy" is more concerned with keeping Kim Jongil happy and fed.
I like to call it the "Blow Sunshine Up the Jonger's Fat Ass" Policy.
This is a huge deal.
For one, many people put their lives on the line for these six escapees.
When the US passed the North Korean Human Rights Act a couple years ago, they said that any North Korean making it to US soil would be given asylum. These are the first.
This is a tremendous victory for everyone who has suffered and worked so hard for freedom. It is a morale boost that could not have come at a better time.
This is only six. Millions more still suffer and die under Kim Jongil's regime.
Some of these girls were sexually trafficed. Some of them are younger than our teen posters here.
