Death by demography: Which European country falls first to the Muslim tide?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 15, 2014

What do you think?

I’ve been betting on Sweden, but some of my compatriots say it will be the UK.  Other guesses?

The news from Sweden’s election yesterday would indicate that Sweden has just stepped-up the pace in the all important race over the cliff for western civilization.  Or has it?

The Wall Street Journal reports that the Swedish Left wing has pushed out the Center right with Leftists angry that their welfare state is eroding.  They worry that health care isn’t as good nor is education as it used to be, but this article laughably makes no DIRECT link to the enormous influx of Muslim third-worlders Sweden has “welcomed” and the decline in the ability of the social safety net to hold them all.

I suppose the big question for the Left is:  do they want the welfare reserved for Swedes or are they sharing their goodies with the world (until they run out)?

The media label Akesson “anti-immigrant.” Now they will have to pay attention to us says the leader of the Sweden Democrats.

Eventually the WSJ mentions the Syrians and the success of the “anti-immigration” party, Sweden Democrats, in the election.

The strong showing of the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats—whose share of votes climbed to 13% from 5.7% in the 2010 election—surprised pollsters. Their opposition strength in parliament also could force Mr. Lofven to recruit a center-right party to his coalition to ensure he can drive through policies.

Fifteen paragraphs in we finally hear about the Syrians (on top of all the other Muslims from places like Iraq and Somalia already flooding into Sweden).  We told you about Sweden swinging wide the door to Syrians just when Obama visited last year at this time, here.

Last September, Sweden became the only European Union country to offer permanent residence to Syrians fleeing their devastated homeland and ahead of the election Mr. Reinfeldt asked Swedes to “open their hearts” to those seeking refuge.

He also acknowledged that immigration will strain the state budget in the short term, something the Sweden Democrats seized on for their campaign. They became the country’s third biggest party in Sunday’s voting.  [LOL! short term?  Where are they going to get the resources long term?---ed]

“Now it will be hard for the other parties to ignore us,” Party Leader Jimmie Akesson said.

For those of you watching Europe’s slide with bets on the UK going first, here are some stats from the Daily Mail yesterday (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’) that argue for your case.

The article is entitled: The changing face of Britain: A child in Birmingham is now more likely to be a Muslim than Christian.

Be sure to look at the adult to children ratio in each city.

 

 

Get it America!

Are Unaccompanied Alien Children bringing sickness into US schools?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 14, 2014

Some doctors think so!

You know the “mystery virus” sickening kids in at least ten statesPowerline blog (hat tip: Paul) has a provocative post here yesterday in which a doctor is quoted as saying:

This is basically the same virus commonly seen in the equatorial Americas and South America. The very odd emergence of this virus at this time – especially just prior to the new school year and now fueled by the congregation of children in schools – demands an explanation. The only plausible one is that this has been brought here from south of the – now non-existent – border.

Read it all and follow links.

Dr. Elaina George: “All you need is one person with tuberculosis to cough on somebody else.”

Then we hear from reader Joanne who directed us to this story at the Daily Caller from last week (‘Feds Force Public Schools To Enroll Illegal Immigrant Children With No Medical Screening‘).  Emphasis below is mine:

Since October 2013, 50,303 “unaccompanied children” from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras have crossed America’s porous Southern border to claim green cards via the immigration courts.

[....]

According to the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative think tank, the Obama administration has not subjected a large number of these children to proper medical screening processes.

Instead, the federal government has sent the unaccompanied minors to various U.S. locations to live with relatives or, in some cases, to live as foster wards. The children then enroll in local, taxpayer-funded public schools with no questions asked — by law.

Dr. Elaina George, a member of the national advisory council of the Project 21 black leadership network and a board-certified otolaryngologist, warned that this policy adds up to the possibility of a very serious disease outbreak.

There’s no mechanism in place to ensure children are checked medically,” George told The Daily Caller. “It’s put everybody at risk. Anybody who comes into contact with a disease — tuberculosis, for example — is at risk.”

Read it all.  Virginia readers need to especially take note of what your state has done (other states too most likely!).

US State Department: We are bringing thousands of Syrians out of Turkey to the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 13, 2014

Update!  If I had a million bucks I would bet that this offer to help Turkey deal with its Syrians was made to encourage the Turks to open their air bases to us.  According to Breitbart the Turks have said NO! to the air bases. I have seen evidence several times over the years that we use refugees for extra-curricular purposes of the State Department.  They can hide under their humanitarian white hat while using the refugees as bargaining chips!

Although there has been no big announcement from the White House rose garden, the US State Department (and their resettlement contractors***) seem unable to contain themselves and are announcing that THE SYRIANS ARE COMING!

The UN has already chosen thousands destined for your towns and cities, and I can assure you the large majority will be Sunni Muslims. (The State Department tracks the religions of refugees, but does not make those numbers available to the general public.)

So far we have had reports that Syrians will go to North Carolina and Ohio, but that is just the beginning.

If we are going to see numbers like the Iraqis in recent years, we are looking at 15,000-20,000 a year going forward!  And, by the way “next year” means fiscal year 2015 which begins in 18 days!

From Today’s Zaman (emphasis is mine):

Deputy Asst. Sec. of State Henshaw: Our resettlement program from Turkey will be the largest in the world.

The US has launched a resettlement program that will admit thousands of refugees currently in Turkey into the US as of next year.

“Our commitment is to do thousands a year over many years,” said Simon Henshaw, principal deputy assistant secretary of the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration of the US State Department, as he talked about US plans for asylum seekers. [Note that they don't say 'until the conflict ends.'---ed]

The US program, which was just launched a few months ago, is part of a UN project for the resettlement of refugees.

“We are committed to being a major part of the UN’s programs to have some of the refugees resettled in the US,” Henshaw, who was on a visit to Turkey, told reporters during a briefing on US aid to Syrian refugees in Turkey.

Several thousand refugees in Turkey will begin the process this year, but it will take nearly a year to come to fruition.

“Next year, you will see thousands entering the US. We are committed to a large program on a par with other large [refugee resettlement] programs in the past,” Henshaw stressed at the meeting held in the US Embassy in Ankara, noting that 100,000 Iraqis have been admitted into the US in the past 10 years.

[.....]

“Our resettlement program from Turkey is one of our largest in the world, and it will continue to grow,” Henshaw added.

And, it will grow by the year says Henshaw!

One last thing, I bet the State Department is not only telling Turkey they are going to be helped, but Jordan and Lebanon as well.

Action Alert!

The best thing for you to do, is to alert your Members of Congress and US Senators and make this an election year issue. Bring up the costs and question the wisdom of bringing more Muslim refugees to America when you attend campaign events this fall.  (Maybe fear of a backlash is why we are not hearing any formal announcement from the White House now—it will come after the November elections.)

For all of our posts on Syrian refugees go here.

Cleveland Health and Human Services to be challenged this next year with more refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 12, 2014

It looks like Cleveland, Ohio will join the Triad of North Carolina and get some of the thousands of Syrian refugees the UN has chosen for America.

Is it because Welcoming America came to town (to soften them up!)?

From Cleveland.com (Hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

City Councilman Joe Cimperman: “Why can’t Cleveland be that welcoming place.”

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Lead poisoning, women’s reproductive health issues and the hardships of immigrant refugees top the priorities of Cleveland City Council’s Health and Human Services Committee this legislative session.

In an interview Wednesday, city councilman Joe Cimperman said that the committee he chairs is “both perspirational and aspirational,” and while it must oversee the function of the city’s Health Department, it must also set the agenda to meet the needs of Cleveland’s changing social landscape.

This year, Cimperman said, that means anticipating a flood of refugees from Iraq, Syria and other war-torn countries, helping them settle in their new environment and connecting them with healthcare and social services.

“In the next 24 months, we are going to feel the effects of the conflicts in Syria and Iraq for sure,” Cimperman said. “I’m sad that they’re forced to flee their countries, but why can’t Cleveland be that welcoming place?”

Cimperman said the city will hold a Refugee Summit and luncheon on Oct. 30 in the City Hall Rotunda, where city leaders will explore ways to attract and accommodate an immigrant population.

Readers in the Cleveland area should plan to attend the “Refugee Summit.”

There are three preferred communities in Ohio—Cleveland, Columbus and Akron.  To see who is running the refugee program for the federal government in Cleveland go here.

More on those Syrian refugees going to North Carolina

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 12, 2014

Update:  First Syrian family to arrive in Greensboro living in hotel, here.

This is follow-up story to our post of a few days ago where we learned that Syrians are arriving in the Triad area of North Carolina.  Resettlement contractor World Relief/Evangelicals expects 30-100 this next year (the fiscal year begins October 1).

The Triad area of North Carolina—a major resettlement site.

Our top post for the last six days is this one about the State Department spokesperson’s comment that thousands of Syrians had been selected by the UN for resettlement to the US.  The largest percentage will be Sunni Muslims.

Refugees are not self-sufficient in 90 days as World Relief says below, but have been connected to “services.”  See our fact sheet for the list of social services (aka welfare) available to refugees.  They will be deemed self-sufficient even as they remain on most forms of welfare.

From the Winston-Salem Journal:

Organizations such as World Relief and Church World Service work with the U.S. State Department to resettle refugees from around the world.  [Both "church" organizations are actually federal contractors.--ed]

Timbie said World Relief High Point typically resettles 400 to 450 refugees in the High Point and Winston-Salem area each year. He expects to assist anywhere from 30 to 100 refugees from Syria in the next year.

The government provides money to help these families make it through their first few months in the United States. World Relief employees provide job skill and language training and help the refugees find jobs with local companies and connect to services.

“Our job is to make them self-sufficient within 90 days,” Timbie said.

That does not mean that they are on their own, Timbie said. It just means they are not relying on that upfront money.

Who is working in Tennessee?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 10, 2014

Grassroots citizen activists in Tennessee are doing the grinding work of pulling facts and figures together in one place so Tennesseans will be better informed.

The ‘tn council 4 political justice’ has published a two-part answer to that all important question—who is working in Tennessee?  And, the short answer is that refugees and other immigrants are getting the jobs and it’s all about the political power and cronyism of their well-connected friends (all the way to the Governor’s office and beyond!).

We come for the jobs says Mohamed-Shukri Hassan (TN coordinator American Muslim Advisory Council). Photo: http://www.lipscomb.edu/www/archive/detail/101/27858

Here is how Part I opens:

An August 2014 Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) analysis of Tennessee’s employment growth since 2000 shows that the jobs have gone to legal and illegal immigrants.

“Tennessee’s working-age immigrant population grew 176 percent from 2000 to 2014, one of the highest of any state in the nation. Yet the number of natives working in 2014 was actually lower in 2000.”

CIS used the same data the government uses to determine labor market participation.

Who are legal immigrants in Tennessee?

Refugees are legal immigrants that are brought to Tennessee by federal contractors like Catholic Charities. They come with work authorization and access to all forms of public assistance including TennCare, SSI and cash welfare, if they meet the eligibility requirements. Federal contractors like Catholic Charities always say that the federal government pays the full cost of the resettlement program. That is not true. The federal government has admitted many times that they have shifted the bulk of the program’s cost to the States.

More….

Part II is here:

The August 2014 Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) analysis can tell you who isn’t working in Tennessee. Their conclusion based on the same data the federal government uses to determine labor market participation shows that the jobs in Tennessee are going to legal and illegal immigrants:

 “Tennessee’s working-age immigrant population grew 176 percent from 2000 to 2014,  one of the highest of any state in the nation. Yet the number of natives working in 2014 was actually lower in 2000.”

With Chamber of Commerce support for both amnesty and refugee resettlement, this should come as no surprise.

Bridge Refugee Services is a refugee resettlement agency in Knoxville. It partners with Church World Services (CWS), one of the nine national resettlement organizations. A volunteer refugee advocacy group has posted the complaints they received about Bridge’s treatment of refugees. One post addresses four reported worksite injuries in over eight months that the refugees claimed Bridge did not help them address. The volunteer that works with the refugees opined that the “agency even sided with the temporary employment agency that placed the refugees, and is more concerned about keeping up their employment placements than they are with the refugees’ welfare.”

In the federal resettlement contracting business, employment numbers are very important, however illusory they may be, as exposed by a former Bridge Refugee Service caseworker. Despite any reported problems, Bridge continues to receive federal grant money. The last publicly available report in 2010 shows $902,445 in taxpayer funds.

Keep reading…. We come for the jobs!

For new readers we have an entire category devoted to posts about news from Nashville, here.  And here is our entire Tennessee archive. By the way Tennessee is a Wilson-Fish state and so the US State Department contractor Catholic Charities is running the refugee show there.

Dumb website asks: Should the US “welcome” 1 million Syrians?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 10, 2014

And a college professor from Northern Virginia says yes (sort of!).

Here is the question at Quora:

Should the U.S welcome 1,000,000 Syrian refugees?

The United Nations estimates that about 6,5 million people have been displaced as a result of the Syrian Civil War. Of those 6,5 millions about 3 millions have fled to countries outside Syria, with Lebanon receiving most, more than 1 million. Should the US as a larger and richer country than Lebanon, Jordan etc. help out with the situation, also as a way to gain goodwill and trust in the Muslim word?  [barf!--oh sure they are going to love us then!--ed]

Here is the answer from college professor Al Carroll.

Virginia History professor Carroll.

Note that Carroll starts to get wobbly about the 1 million number.  It is always amusing to see open borders Leftwingers squirm when you reach certain high numbers of migrants and refugees indicating that they too know there must be a limit, but are unwilling to say exactly what that number might be that could push America over the cliff.

Al Carroll, My name is Al Carroll. I’m a historian, history professor at Northern VA Community College, and author of Presidents’ Body Counts.

If the US were truly a Christian nation, this would not even be up for debate. Of course you help out those need, facing death by war, displacement, and repression. That is needed far more than more bombs or sending guns. You help out because it’s the right thing to do.

For those of us who try to be good Christians (I’m Catholic) ethnicity or religion or country of origin should not matter. For those  people who are anti immigrant or anti Muslim or anti Arab or Middle Eastern people, you can claim to be many things. But you cannot claim to be a Christian without being seen as a hypocrite when you fail to help your fellow man.

I don’t know that 1 million refugees is the right number, that this many would choose to come here. There is no reason that this number could not be split with countries in Europe that have an equally noble tradition of taking in refugees. When I was traveling in Sweden I was impressed with how many Chileans the Swedes took in during the time of Pinochet’s dictatorship. But since the crisis in Syria was partly created by US support for ISIS rebels earlier and the instability brought by the US invasion of Iraq, it seems only fitting. I thought it shameful and hypocritical of GW Bush that he did not make a special effort to aid Iraqi refugees caused by his war of choice.  [LOL! No criticism of Obama who has been in charge of our Syria policy for six years and has so far brought less than 100 Syrians to the US?---ed]

See our post of last week where we reported that the US State Department has announced that the Syrians are coming.  How many will it be?

Greensboro, NC: First Syrian refugees on the way there this week

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 9, 2014

Our post of late last week where we reported that the US State Department is saying that thousands of Syrian refugees have been chosen by the UN to be resettled to your towns and cities went through the roof with thousands and thousands of readers passing it around.

They are probably flowing into other small cities as well, but the Triad offices of contractors Church World Service and World Relief-Evangelicals (two of the big nine!) seem especially adept at getting news stories planted. (Just last month see World Relief here and Church World Service in North Carolina, here.)

By the way, back in 2010 there was a huge controversy in this part of North Carolina about too many refugees with lousy care.  We wrote a three part story about the problem, which begins with this post. Local churches asked that the flow be slowed.  LOL! the series showed what a dog-eat-dog-world the world of federal refugee contracting can be!

From the Winston-Salem Journal:

GREENSBORO — The first in the current wave of Syrian refugees will arrive in the Triad this week, representatives with the organizations helping to resettle them said Friday.

Sarah Ivory, Church World Service director in the Triad, says they are working with the local Islamic Center. Photo: http://cwsgreensboro.org/2012/03/05/40under40/

A Syrian family of seven will arrive on Tuesday and will settle in Greensboro, said Sarah Ivory, the director of refugee and immigration services with Church World Service in Greensboro. The family includes five children, the youngest just 5 months old, Ivory said. The oldest is 10 years old.

Andrew Timbie, the office director for World Relief’s High Point office, said his organization is helping to resettle a family in Winston-Salem. That family also will arrive next week, although he would not provide the exact date.

“This is the first of many that we anticipate,” Timbie said of Syrian refugees.

Church World Service and World Relief work with the U.S. State Department and the United Nations to resettle refugees.

Ivory said the family coming to Greensboro is currently living in Jordan. Timbie said on Friday that he did not have a lot of background information about the family his office is assisting.

The organizations receive government money to help give refugee families fresh starts, but the goal is to help the families become self-sufficient, with the help of other community agencies.  [At least they are admitting they do it with government money, something we never saw reported in the early years of writing RRW.---ed]

[....]

Ivory said Church World Service is working with the Islamic Center of Greensboro, the Greensboro Jewish Federation and the local Syrian-American community to provide other resources to the family, such as hot meals upon arrival, clothing and diapers.

Lexington, KY: Habitat builds 400th house, this one for Congolese refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 9, 2014

It is official, there are no more poor Americans in need of homes in Kentucky!

By the way, Kentucky is a Wilson-Fish state which means the refugee resettlement program is being run by the US State Department contractor Catholic Charities (KY state government is completely out of the loop).

From WKYT (Hat tip: Robin):

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – Along with the help of volunteers from Catholic Parishes of Lexington, Habitat for Humanity is building their 400th home in Lexington.

“A number is just a number but t’s a symbol of the number of families we’ve been able to serve who need decent housing,” says Rachel Childress, CEO of Lexington Habitat for Humanity. “It’s also symbolic of the thousands and thousands of other families in Lexington (and around the world) who do need a quality, affordable place to live.”

Memba Mmandama and his wife Anjelani moved to Kentucky in 2010 after their home in the Democratic Republic of Congo was destroyed by rebels.

Why did the resettlement contractor place the family in a slum apartment in the first place?

After living in a refugee camp in Mozambique, Memba and his family moved to an apartment complex in the U.S., but it is overcrowded, has a faulty heating and cooling system and is infested with roaches.

That’s where Habitat for Humanity stepped in.

It is not just houses being built in Kentucky for refugees, it is mosques as well (raising the profile of Islam).

See all of our posts on Kentucky, they have had their share of problems with refugees!

Oregon: Congolese refugee family of 13 was homeless all summer

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 8, 2014

So why are we bringing more Congolese refugees to America when we can’t take care of the ones here from earlier batches?

The Mushombe family didn’t just ‘find their way’ to Oregon from Africa, some US State Department resettlement contractor*** was given this family to resettle, why did they drop the ball?

(Just so you know the US State Department announced in 2013 that they are pushing to bring in 50,000 Congolese in the coming months and years.)

The Congolese family was homeless for the summer, lived in a Portland park.

From KGW.com (hat tip: Joanne):

LAFAYETTE, Ore. – A refugee family of 13 people has a home to rent in a small town after being homeless this past summer.

Oswald Mushombe and his wife Nakinga Mahinga have 11 children, ranging in age from 5 months old to nearly 16 years old. Some of them were born in a refugee camp in Africa, where the family lived for five years to escape violence and persecution in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Housing problems after they arrived in the United States 16 months ago led to the family bouncing around and eventually ending up living in a Portland park this past summer.

Mushombe said he tried everything to get help from a variety of agencies.

A week ago, they ended up in front of the McMinnville home of Monica Radke. She took them in, and has been spearheading a help campaign ever since.

***It looks like the major federal contractors in Oregon are Catholic Charities, Lutheran Community Services Northwest, and SOAR (Sponsors organized to assist refugees).  Which one screwed up?   They will all say they were responsible for only up to 8 months after that the family is “supposed” to be self-sufficient.

So I guess they don’t feel they have any moral responsibility for these people once the contract is up?  The family sure is lucky that there are kind Americans who are not being paid to take care of refugees.
