World Net Daily does it again! Detailed report on American mayors objecting to refugee resettlement for their cities

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2014

Reporter Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily again shows his skill at pulling together threads of a complicated and very secretive program of the federal government—the US State Department’s and the Office of Refugee Resettlement’s (in HHS) program (at the UN’s direction) to demographically change your towns and cities.   Nashua, NH take note!

Here is how his latest detailed report from yesterday on a revolt of mayors across the country begins (he spoke with the mayor of Athens, Georgia):

The mayor of Athens, Georgia, has joined a growing chorus of mayors across the U.S. who are concerned about the federal government’s resettlement of foreign refugees in their cities and the resulting drain on public services.

Athens GA mayor Nancy Denson: we want a detailed plan on how refugees would integrate.

The refugees come from war-torn countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East and require a plethora of government services to help them overcome language and cultural barriers. They have little or no job skills that translate into trades in a modern economy such as the U.S.

Athens has been targeted as the latest refugee city of destination by New York City-based International Rescue Committee Inc., which provides resettlement services for the federal government on a contract basis. IRC wants to transplant 150 refugees who are fleeing Iraq, Syria, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burma.

Athens Mayor Nancy Denson recently sent a letter asking the IRC to delay the resettlement until it can put together a “formal refugee integration plan.”

Once the IRC gets approval to open an office in Athens, the pipeline of refugees would continue on an annual basis. That’s why Denson said the community must know ahead of time if it is able to accommodate the needs of the refugees for housing, schooling, public health and welfare services.

Denson, a Democrat, has the support of Republican Gov. Nathan Deal in her effort to forestall the opening of an IRC resettlement office in Athens. International Rescue Committee is the largest and oldest of the nine private agencies that contract with the federal government to resettle foreign refugees in U.S. cities.

It is long but read it all.  It is chock-full of information not just about Athens, but about many other cities (pockets of resistance) as well.

Denver refugee offspring (Somalis and Sudanese) caught in Germany trying to reach ISIS

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2014

Ho hum…. so what else is new!

This story is all over the news, so other than for me to acknowledge the latest case of refugees thumbing their noses at the good life in America (paid for by you, the taxpayer) and still wanting to join the Jihad, here is one version of the story from ABC.  If you see more detailed stories, send the link as a comment.

If you type ‘Somali missing youths’ into our search window, you will get upwards of 100 posts (going back as far as 2008) on this same topic—Somali refugees off to learn the Jihad trade.

Nashua, NH to take 150 new refugees this year; contact the mayor!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2014

New Hampshire readers (others too!) need to send yesterday’s World Net Daily story to Nashua’s mayor!

Titled, Another US city protests influx of refugees,’ the article (a must-read) is a broad overview of cities across America where mayors are asking questions and demanding the flow stop (or in the case of Athens, GA not even begin).  Once an agency gets a foothold, they won’t stop at 150!

This article in the Nashua Telegraph requires a subscription.  Here is a bit of it from a reader who is a subscriber.

And, LOL!, check it out, Lutheran Social Services of New England has changed its name.   By the way, this is a prime example of how these resettlement contractors (whatever they re-name themselves) overload certain cities then spread out from there.  They are running out of “welcoming” places to drop-off refugees!

Nashua Mayor Donnalee Lozeau needs to talk to other mayors before she jumps into the frying pan. Or is it too late? Contact the mayor here: http://www.gonashua.com/CityGovernment/MayorsOffice/MayorsBiography/tabid/66/Default.aspx

Three years ago, the mayor of Manchester asked officials to stop resettling families in the state’s largest city.

And just last year, Nashua’s mayor urged caution when about 50 refugees were set to come here, saying the city needed to make sure the appropriate services were in place.

“I want to make sure that the refugees that are resettled in Nashua are successful,” Lozeau said last year.

“We’ve got to make sure the school they may be going to will be prepared to assist them, that they have safe and affordable housing in a location that’s appropriate.”

Resettlement has been a coordinated effort among city services, volunteer groups and the School District, said Amy Marchildon, program director of the New Hampshire arm of refugee placement agency Ascentria Services for New Americans, formerly Lutheran Social Services of New England.

The organization works with people seeking asylum and secondary migrants, placing them primarily in Laconia, Concord and Nashua.

“There is a real network of support in social services and volunteer support … and a lot of support from the city,” Marchildon said.

Historically, Nashua has received few refugees compared with other New Hampshire communities.

Manchester has received more than 4,400 refugees since 1998, while Concord took in more than 1,600 and Laconia received nearly 500.

But the state’s second largest city took in only 218 refugees during that time, according to resettlement figures from the state Department of Health and Human Services.

Lozeau said city agencies have come together to meet the impending influx of refugees.

There is more to the news, but you may have to subscribe to get it.

In Liberal, Kansas meat packing plant a black guy named Smith murders a Somali refugee

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 21, 2014

Liberal by the way, is the name of the town!

Here we learn that an African-American killed one of his African ‘brothers’ apparently on the job at National Beef.

It was just last week that we reported on the on-going tension between African-Americans and Somali refugees in Minneapolis, here.

We have a whole raft of posts at RRW on problems in Kansas meat packing towns as ‘BIG MEAT’ continues to bring in refugee laborers.  Click here for that entire archive.  See also ‘Globalists changing the Heartland’ as they look for cheap immigrant labor for big business (with a side benefit of creating more Democrat voters in traditionally red states).

This news from last week (thanks to a Kansas reader) doesn’t tell us what the altercation was about, but searching around there is some commentary that the police are keeping details hushed up.  If anyone sees more news on the Liberal meatpacking murder, let us know.

From the Leader & Times:

Smith is charged with 2nd degree murder in meatpacking death of Somali refugee.

 Jail logs issued Thursday by the Seward County Sheriff’s Office identify the man arrested for second degree murder of a man he had an altercation with last Friday as Michael Joel Smith.

Smith. 31, is listed as a resident of Guymon., Okla., and he was initially taken to Liberal Police Department headquarters for questioning on Oct. 10, after he had an “altercation” with Abdukadir Mohamed Dahir, 25, while both were working at National Beef. He was then released.

Dahir was airlifted that same day to a Wichita hospital for treatment of his injuries, where he died the following day, Saturday, due to “blunt force injuries of the head,” according to authorities.

After Dahir’s death, LPD Capt. Pat McClurg announced LPD had arrested Smith Tuesday evening and was seeking a second degree murder charge against Smith with the Seward County Attorney’s office.

Authorities have yet to release the cause of the injuries or any additional details of the altercation.

“No other suspects are being sought in connection with this incident,” McClurg noted Wednesday. “The investigation of this incident is ongoing.”

Can we expect CAIR to show up?

Hey Maine dummies: Just because they are Africans doesn’t mean they carry Ebola

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2014

And, you know stereotyping is very wrong and doing so makes you a very very bad person.

RRW geography lesson! Just found this very useful map that updates every day the countries where Ebola has been reported (in case you plan to go to Africa).

I just re-read this article and wondered why it was news.

We know here at RRW that Maine is in overload with its mostly African immigrants and the recent rush of asylum seekers, but this article is nothing more than a lecture to those dummies (I’m not calling anyone a dummy!) who live in Maine and don’t know about geography and other such things more worldly people might know about.

Read it yourselves.  The bottom line is that no one can seem to find any Africans in Maine yet stereotyped as possible Ebola carriers, but just in case you Mainers have a hankering to start stereotyping, don’t do it says the Portland Press Herald.

…representatives of several Maine immigrant communities in Portland and Lewiston-Auburn said they have not experienced any negative interactions because of the Ebola outbreak.

But rest assured, the powers-that-be are getting a jump on the non-problem by distributing information on how you should be thinking.

By the way, it isn’t just happening in Maine, I saw other articles before I went away where “communities” were heading stereotyping off-at-the- pass.

One more effort to drill in the immigrants-are-victims meme (but, hey, aren’t they now stereotyping?).

About the map which can be found by clicking here—Tourism Update says it is updated every day.  Cool huh?

See our Health Issues category for more on refugee and immigrant health in America.

And in case you aren’t aware we are taking refugees right now from DR Congo.  The State Department is trying to get about 50,000 of them in here.

Obama “welcomes” 100,000 Haitians to your towns and cities

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2014

Obama is getting it done with his pen and phone while everyone yaks about the Republicans possibly winning the Senate in a few weeks and while we follow shiny objects—like the Ebola mess.

Obama getting it done!

Folks I hate to break it to you, but Obama will have two years to do his unlawful work because even if Republicans take control of the Congressional branch there appear to be few leaders who have any guts there to stop (or undo) any of the outrageous executive actions he is getting done.

I don’t understand why more Republican Senators and Congressional leaders don’t speak up now and thus assure their victory in November.

We better hope the 80-year-old Senator Grassley stays in the Senate and stays healthy!

By the way, there are already tens of thousands of Haitians here legally under Temporary Protected Status.  See our category on Haiti, here, to learn how that came about. Since they are here legally I expect their families will be applying for family reunification under the new Obama plan.

I’m also guessing that these new Haitians will come under the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement and their contractors thus making this another expansion (in addition to the UACs) of the definition of the word ‘refugee’ and further broadening the refugee resettlement program thus giving the new Haitians immediate access to welfare, one of the plums that comes to those designated as “refugees.”  (Someone correct me if I am wrong!).

From the Washington Times (hat tip: Erich):

The ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee took the Obama administration to task Friday for its “irresponsible” plan to allow as many as 100,000 Haitians to immigrate to the U.S. without a visa.

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said the administration’s Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program — which will allow thousands of Haitians awaiting a U.S. visa to enter the country and legally apply for work permits — is “an irresponsible overreach of the executive branch’s authority.”

Which countries are next on President Obama’s list?” Mr. Grassley said. “Will there by medical screenings before entry? Will work permits be granted automatically? How will this affect American workers?”

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the branch of the Department of Homeland Security that handles immigration benefits cases, announced Friday the program to unite Haitians already living in the U.S. with family members abroad will ramp up in 2015.

At that time the State Department’s National Visa Center will begin notifying families who may be eligible to take part in the program. Those immigrants will allowed to apply for work permits while waiting for issuance of their permanent visas.

The agency said the program will expedite “safe, legal and orderly migration.”

Nashville school system a wreck due to immigrant overload and poverty

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2014

Responsible! David Lubell, Welcoming America

I wish now I had the time before I go away for a few days to post all the stories I had piled up about school systems across America in deep financial (and social) trouble due largely to the cost of educating immigrant children whose needs are enormous.  I was planning a big post on the ‘towers of babel’ problem and wish now I had posted them individually.

Responsible! Holly Johnson Catholic Charities

Here is one, at the Nashville Scene (considered a far-Left publication) entitled: As Nashville’s immigrant population grows, Metro public schools are straining at the seams that just came in this morning and will leave it to you to read.

The Nashville public school system is deteriorating as it struggles to educate students speaking 38 languages (we have actually seen some school systems with more than that number of languages) and who come from impoverished immigrant homes, while Nashville citizens who can afford it, are pulling their kids out of the public schools.

And as readers here know, Catholic Charities is busy, busy, busy bringing more refugees into Nashville.

Responsible! Tom Negri needed more cheap labor for the hotel industry.

Here is just a bit of the Nashville Scene story:

 Mishell [the immigrant star of the story---ed] attends Overton High School, considered one of the entry points for Nashville’s immigrant population into the public school system, and hence into American life. It’s a stone’s throw from tony private Franklin Road Academy, and just three minutes from the governor’s mansion.

But it might as well be in another country. The school is bursting at the seams, and a staggering 70 percent of its student body — that’s 7 out of every 10 kids — comes from a low-income family.

That hurdle is compounded by a vast communications gap. At Overton, which serves South Nashville’s sprawling mix of immigrant cultures, some 38 separate languages are spoken. At nearby high schools Glencliff and Antioch, according to the state report card, more than 1 in 6 students are trying to learn English while speaking another language at home.

For new readers we have an entire category (74 previous posts!) on the problems Nashville has had going back years as a preferred refugee resettlement site.  I find reader shocked to learn that Nashville is so far gone, it is such an unlikely place for massive demographic change.

Photos:  I am sure there are more I could post of those responsible for the travesty Nashville’s public school system faces, but I am running out of time before I go away—be back Monday (the 20th) to post your comments.

Romanians living in London subway demand homes

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2014

It is not just Muslim migrants over-running Europe and expecting services, here is a story from London about Romanians living in the subway system.  They say they will move if given homes.

 

Romanians camp in subway at Park Lane. Notice the nervous-looking Mom and daughter slipping by them.

 

From the Daily Mail which always seems to find the most interesting news! (hat tip:  ‘pungentpeppers’):

A gang of Romanian beggars sleeping rough on one of London’s most exclusive streets today demanded: ‘We’re EU citizens, give us houses’.

The 40-strong group sleeping in a subway under Park Lane have been accused of turning it into a ‘slum’ having lived in various camps near Marble Arch for 18 months.

Local businesses believe they have driven away customers because of the mess and members of the group urinating in the street and fighting with rivals.

Today the group said they are willing to pack up their cardboard boxes if Westminster Council found them homes.

Read it all.  Besides being a nuisance and responsible for an up-tick in petty crime, local businesses say their ‘camps’ are bad for business—check out the photos!

How much time before we see encampments like these in American subways and parks?

End note:  RRW will be taking a break beginning today after we post a few more stories.  Be back on October 20th and will be able to post your comments then.

Swedes seek out alternative media to read about one thing: immigration!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2014

Here is more proof for my case that Sweden will be the first socialist ‘heaven’ to fall under the weight of needy migrant hordes—mostly Muslim migrants!

I’ve noticed here, even at tiny RRW, that we get more visitors reading about Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands or the UK than we often do about some juicy American news.  A blogger friend once told me that the reason for that is that the European press hardly touches the verboten topic.

From Dispatch International (hat tip: FatherJon):

Jimmy Åkesson leader of the Sweden Democrats needs police protection because he dares to speak about Swedish immigration policy. Photo: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/sep/09/guardian-view-on-swedish-elections

The Englishman Iain Channing returns to Sweden, the country he lived in during the 1980s. What has happened to the safe and well ordered country that was so admired throughout the world? Do people really appreciate the politicians’ radical experiment in social engineering? And what about Malmö – Sweden’s preeminent test tube?

To understand how things have reached this pass—when an ordinary working class guy resorts to a self-censorship gesture used in communist countries—you only need to read the Swedish press. Mass immigration is not quite a taboo, but all criticism of it is censored, distorted or demonized. An almost daily barrage of hate and slander is directed at the Sweden Democrats (SD), the anti-immigration party that is now shaking up Sweden’s cosy coalition-based politics. “SD are trying to delude the working class.” “SD are still racists!” “How far to the right will [SD leader] Jimmy Åkesson go?”

Every single newspaper story I read about SD in a month in Sweden—and there were a lot, because its rise (to 10 percent in the polls) has become a real headache for the establishment—was negative and often littered with childish, abusive epithets originating in World War II. In such an environment, the party does not list an address on its website, and its three top leaders require police protection.

Channing goes on to discuss how Swedes are finding alternative media for their news on the issue that they are most concerned about…

It is all about immigration, immigration, immigration!

….the issue of immigration will not go away. On the contrary, the unmentionable topic has become a national obsession. According to columnist Hakelius, “[people who send me letters now] are interested in one thing: immigration. The discussion can begin wherever it likes, but it always ends with immigration. Immigration, immigration, immigration, immigration, immigration.”

Read it all, and then check out our extensive archive on Sweden.  One of our top posts of all time is this one (photo link seems to be gone now).

Rush Limbaugh: US military more worried about climate refugees than ISIS, Ebola and Putin

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 15, 2014

 

I had to laugh when I heard Limbaugh talking about climate refugees—-something we have been reporting on for years here at RRW.  In fact, we are probably your go-to site for climate refugee news from a skeptical perspective.  It’s not that I don’t think people will be on the move around the world due to changing factors in the environment—hasn’t that happened since the beginning of the human race?—it’s just that now it will be used as one more way to bludgeon us into opening our wallets and letting the world move in next door.

See our “climate refugees” category by clicking here (this is our 40th post on the subject):

Here is Rush (emphasis mine):

RUSH: I had this in the Stack two days ago, meaning last Friday, I had it in the Stack yesterday, just touched on it. But let me give you a little thing here just to make a point, keep things in perspective. I mentioned yesterday the Pentagon is now developing strategies as to how to handle climate change, the Pentagon.

On the basis of what? You might say, the Pentagon, the defense department, climate change, what the heck is the connection?

You’ve got to understand who is at the Pentagon now. It’s not your average George C. Scott who wants to bomb the commies anymore. You’ve got extensions of Barack Obama in the Defense Department. So when the Pentagon talks about the fear that global warming is something they have to strategize and have to have ready to go, what it means is global warming is going to cause more pestilence. It’s going to cause more starvation.

It’s going to cause drought and it’s going to cause floods and it’s going to cause cold weather and hot weather, and all of this is going to create refugees like we’ve never seen. And these refugees are going to be marching all over the globe trying to escape the harsh conditions global warming will bring on, and that is what will present the challenge to the US military.

Don’t misunderstand. It’s not that the military is devising weapons to stop climate change. The military, under orders from Obama, is coming up with strategies to deal with the pests. The locusts, for example, and all the destruction that will be caused by global warming which will lead to increased numbers of poverty stricken refugees. And it will basically be a crowd control operation. That’s what the Pentagon’s global climate change military strategy planning is all about. Crowd control. When you get right down to it. And it’s ridiculous.

He goes on, read it all.

Then please visit our ‘climate refugees’ category, here.

Obama sure is working overtime to change the subject!  Could the Ebola news and the ISIS news get any worse?
