Australia: “most multicultural society on earth” wants more immigrants! Who knew!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 18, 2014

That’s what a recent article in The Australian reports as it tells us that 20% of respondents want more migrants to come to Australia in an article titled, Two-Thirds Majority Back Current or Higher Immigration Intake.

 

Here are the charming 20% who want higher levels of immigration to Australia as the Abbott government turns back asylum seekers. https://news.vice.com/article/the-australian-navy-is-towing-asylum-seekers-back-out-to-sea

 

I had to read this article a couple of times to figure out what the point of it all might be and am still not sure, except to use a “news” story to sway public opinion.

Remember, readers, as we know so well, Tony Abbott, Australia’s present Prime Minister was elected only last year because of his platform (which he apparently is working on daily to hear the squealing out of the UN) to slow the flow of boat people (faux asylim seekers) breaking into Australia.  The citizens there were completely fed up!

We frequently cite Australia, Israel and Bulgaria as three countries seriously attempting to close their borders.

Check out the article yourself (here is a bit of it) posted at American Renaissance (with some good commentary).   One thing seems clear, the pollsters polled heavily in immigrant neighborhoods and among young, rich, city dwellers.

Higher migration levels are favoured by a fifth of Australians, in an exclusive Newspoll survey revealing robust support for the most multicultural society on earth.

Nearly half the people ­surveyed support Australia’s ­existing immigration intake, which settled 190,000 immigrants last year in the world’s largest per capita intake. Two-thirds were skilled migrants.

Twenty-two per cent favour an even higher intake, with support strongest among the young, those on high incomes and capital city-dwellers.

European, African and Asian migration enjoys the strongest public support, with 26 per cent of Australians desiring more ­migrants from Europe. Another 18 per cent want to see more Asian migrants, and 20 per cent support more immigration from Africa.

In contrast, just 14 per cent of Australians want to see more Muslim migrants, and 37 per cent favour a cut.

Read it all.

By the way, about the same number (20%) of respondents who want higher immigration levels also say that Australians are racists.

LOL! This article could just as well have been titled:  86% of Australians polled want less Muslim migrants admitted to Australia.  I guess that would mean that some of the immigrants polled and some of the young, rich, city dwellers are Islamophobic.   Gee, I wonder why?

For new readers, see our Australia category with over 100 previous posts.  We especially want American readers to know that the invasion by the third world is happening in every advanced society and you need to know how others are handling the demographic upheaval.  Western society is under siege.

Refugees a big issue in Wyoming gubernatorial primary debate

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 17, 2014

What a relief to write about something other than the border crisis!

Action alert below! Help Haynes!

This is an update on another of our favorite subjects—why the Republican governor of Wyoming wants a refugee resettlement program in a state (the only state!) previously smart enough not to get entangled with the federal government by importing third-worlders to the state.

Dr. Taylor Haynes (left) is challenging incumbent Republican Governor Matt Mead in a primary scheduled for August 19th. Photo: Alan Rogers, Star-Tribune

On Tuesday night Republican candidates squared off over that issue (and the perennial public lands controversy) in a debate in Casper.

For background see our extensive archive that began with the Governor actually writing to the feds in September of last year inviting them to set up shop in Wyoming.

Wouldn’t you think that the public lands issue would be enough to keep them from inviting the US State Department and the Dept. of Health and Human Services into the state to assume a role in the state’s business?

From the Caspar Star Tribune (emphasis mine):

Gubernatorial candidates Dr. Taylor Haynes and Gov. Matt Mead disagreed in a Tuesday night debate on refugees in Wyoming and on how to respond to a Wyoming Republican pet peeve – intrusive federal government overreach.  [The issues are one and the same!---ed]

[....]

Haynes, a Cheyenne physician, rancher and business owner, opposes refugees resettling in the Cowboy State, after news earlier this year that the state is exploring having a refugee resettlement program. Wyoming is the only state without such a program.

Haynes is concerned about diseases such as HIV, Ebola or drug-resistant tuberculosis, he said. He worries some may have terrorist ties.

“I think they’re groups of people brought in to kill our labor and undermine our culture,” he said.

As a Christian, Haynes said his heart goes out to them, but there are too many refugees in the world. The best solution is to provide aid that benefits them, such as supporting Doctors Without Borders. [Excellent idea--ed]

Mead, a former U.S. attorney for Wyoming who was elected governor in 2010, said the state isn’t importing refugees. The state is exploring the idea of having a refugee resettlement program, he said.

“Count the number of refugees we’ve brought under my administration,” he said. “Zero.”

Mead said refugees may already be living in Wyoming, and he wants to know who they are and what services they use.

One of my favorite articles about the controversy is this one where Governor Mead as much as called RRW and me, your humble blogger—racist!—after we helped educate citizens of Wyoming about what they would be getting into when inviting federal contractors to bring refugees to Wyoming.

And here is something to think about:  the contractor the Governor wants to invite in is the Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains which tried to keep the Wyoming plan secret until it was further along.  Lutheran Family Services’ mothership is one of the major federal contractors moving ‘unaccompanied minors’ around the US at this moment.  So, maybe just on that front alone, Wyoming has dodged a bullet by not yet having formal immigrant/refugee ties with the feds.

Action Alert! 

If you want to support a Republican candidate who has the guts to speak his mind on this taboo topic and send the establishment Republicans (squishes, if not down-right open borders, on immigration) a message, send a donation to Haynes!  Click here for Dr. Haynes campaign website.

WND: Religious charities profit from open borders

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 17, 2014

Every time I think I’m done with this topic for a few minutes, in comes a new article that you must see on the border invasion.

Right now there are so many other issues involving refugees and migrants in the US and around the world that we are missing with our non-stop coverage of the invasion of America that I’m fearful that our international readers will drop off (we have readers in over 150 countries!).

However, since this is one of our major concerns—the complete lack of understanding by the average citizen (and Glen Beck!) that charitable “religious” groups (pretending to be driven to help the migrants purely out of Christian or Jewish charity) could never exist without almost their entire budget being funded by US taxpayers—we are relieved to finally see a far-reaching national level report on the issue.

Leo Hohmann writing at WND (emphasis is mine):

Thousands of Central American children crossing the border illegally could soon turn into asylum seekers armed with immigration lawyers provided by church groups and paid for by federal tax dollars.

Catholic Charities is running a fundraising campaign to help finance the resettlement of the illegal aliens, WND reported. But the religious charities get the bulk of their funding not from private donors or church members putting checks into a basket. They get it from the federal government.

Alexandria, Va.-based Catholic Charities USA reported receiving $1.7 million in government grants in 2012, according to its IRS Form 990.

But one of the largest recipients of government funds to resettle immigrant children is the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The USCCB helps resettle not only unaccompanied alien children, or UACs, who enter the country illegally but also refugees fleeing persecution overseas who enter through legal channels.

The USCCB is one of nine primary agencies that receive hundreds of millions in U.S. tax dollars to perform their charity work. Under contract with the federal government, the nonprofit groups work to resettle child refugees and asylum seekers. Six of the nine contractors are religious groups, WND has learned, including the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the Church World Service and World Relief Corp., which includes a plethora of evangelical groups.

The Catholic Bishops alone received $65.9 million in federal grants to care for unaccompanied alien children and refugees, according to its 2012 annual report.

By contrast, the group raised $1.4 million from its own church members while federal loans and private-sector grants made up the remainder of the $71 million spent on the resettlements that year. That means 93 percent of the USCCB’s spending on charity work with UACs and refugees was covered by the American taxpayer.

Kevin Appleby, director of USCC’s Migration and Refugee Services Office, did not return calls from WND seeking comment.

Similar funding ratios have been found to be the norm with the Lutheran effort.

The Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service reported total income of $41.7 million in 2012, and government grants accounted for $40.4 million, or 96.8 percent of that amount, according to the nonprofit’s most recently reported Form 990, a disclosure that nonprofits must file with the Internal Revenue Service. The group raised only $1.3 million from private donors.

Miji Bell, press spokeswoman for Lutheran Immigration, also did not return calls Tuesday.

If they would tell the public the truth about their funding (and their fat salaries) I might have some respect for the whole bunch!

Dan Cadman at CIS:  They all have their hands in the pie!  And, they are working to get the illegals qualified as refugees.  WND continues….

Dan Cadman, with the Center for Immigration Studies, says it’s a conflict of interest for a group that benefits financially from immigration – both legal and illegal – to try to influence immigration policy.

“It bothers me that any private organization is using a government funding stream for that purpose, not only Catholic Charities but Lutheran World Service, the Episcopal Church, they’ve all got their hands in the pie,” Cadman said. “The thing is that everyone understands that, with a wink and a nod, this so-called emergency money (from Obama) is not going to result in any substantial number of individuals being deported. It’s just not. How ironic to see an emergency budget supplemental request and then when you look at the details you see it’s all going to be chewed up for things like brick and mortar buildings for resettlement and not used in any useful way to stop this tidal wave of human beings.”

Cadman said there is “no doubt in my mind” that the religious NGOs or “non-governmental organizations” are working with the United Nations to get the children qualified as refugees or asylum seekers.  (See our post on Bishops call alien children “refugees.”—ed)

By the way, the Bishops have their own immigration legal branch (most likely funded with federal grants too) known as CLINIC (a story for another day!).  One could call Obama’s plea for more money for the border crisis, The Immigration Lawyers Employment Act of 2014!

Read the whole World Net Daily article it is full of information on the groups comprising the Religious Left, I’ve only snipped a small amount of it!

MD Governor O’Malley pleaded with White House: Don’t send them to WESTERN Maryland

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 17, 2014

I’m posting this for a couple of reasons, first, because you are going to hear the name Martin O’Malley a lot in the coming months and years—he wants to be the next Progressive occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, and second because we need a good laugh sometimes.

Last week we reported that a site in western MD —Westminster in Carroll County—had been identified as a potential new home for a couple of hundred illegal alien “minors.”  Locals caught wind of the plan and knowing conservative activists here there would have been a demonstration on par with anything Murietta, CA could produce.

In fact, a clip of Carroll County Commissioner Richard Rothschild (highly critical of the plan) was featured on the O’Reilly Factor last evening.  Rothschild said about his call to HHS:

“I want to point out that HHS, I asked HHS what are you going to do if these children can’t find their parents? Are you going to keep them imprisoned in this compound? No answers.”

Surely O’Malley, with his Presidential aspirations, didn’t relish the optics of a Murietta-style uprising on his home turf.  He did tell the White House that other locations in the state would be o.k. 

Maryland has a well-established refugee resettlement program and one of the big nine*** federal contractors—Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service—is located in the upscale area known as the Inner Harbor.   Not to mention the fact that the notorious Casa de Maryland (The illegals ACORN) is undoubtedly itching to get its paws into some federal “refugee” loot—-for the “children.”   See one of our many posts on Casa de Maryland (Sandinistas, El Salvador and the Sanctuary Movement).

The ‘unaccompanied alien minors’ are surely already being brought to “welcoming” Maryland.

From CNN (Hat tip: Jeff).  Emphasis is mine:

(CNN) – After his strong criticism of the Obama administration’s plans to return thousands of young undocumented migrants back to Central America, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley asked a top White House official that the children not be sent to a site that was under consideration in his home state, sources familiar with the conversation said.

“He privately said ‘please don’t send these kids to Western Maryland,’” a Democratic source told CNN. The heated discussion between O’Malley and White House domestic policy adviser Cecilia Munoz occurred during a phone call late Friday evening, sources familiar with the conversation added.

Earlier O’Malley criticized the White House for using the ‘deportation’ word!

A potential Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, O’Malley surprised some in his party when he sharply criticized a White House proposal to give new legal authorities to the Department of Homeland Security to expedite the deportation of the unaccompanied minors and their families.

“We are not a country that should turn children away and send them back to certain death,” O’Malley said last week at a National Governors Association meeting in Nashville.

Instead, the governor urged the administration to show compassion toward the children, describing some of the facilities where the young detainees are being kept as “kennels.”

LOL! Then the Obama Administration picked a potential location in RED Western Maryland to house a number of the illegal aliens and O’Malley had to beg for relief.

Hours after making those remarks, O’Malley expressed concerns to Munoz about a proposal under consideration by the Department of Health and Human Services to convert a former Army Reserve Center in Westminster, Maryland to house the children.

A senior O’Malley administration official confirmed the conversation took place. But the official stressed O’Malley did not reject the idea of temporarily housing some of the children in other parts of the state.

Now, I bet you are wondering how this embarrassing  story about a private phone call between O’Malley and Munoz leaked to CNN.  I’m placing my bets on Valerie Jarrett slapping O’Malley down a peg or two.  Why?  Is she already working on some other Presidential candidate’s campaign?

Just as I finished this, I see there is another good story about the rift and the leak, here at WJLA.

Good summary of hot spots where communities are fighting back; plans for this weekend

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 16, 2014

World Net Daily writer Leo Hohmann has posted a good summary about the upcoming ALIPAC nationwide demonstrations against amnesty and the border surge and has listed some of the communities standing up and saying NO! to the feds who want to dump illegal aliens on their communities.

Frankly, I ended yesterday frustrated by how to keep up and report to you about every place in America that has so far opposed the Obama border invasion, but thanks to Hohmann’s summary I feel relieved and will move on to a few other issues involving refugees and ‘unaccompanied minors’ (fake refugees) today.

Here is World Net Daily:

Rush Limbaugh is good on the issue of uncontrolled immigration except he, like so many, doesn’t get it that the Catholic Church is being PAID by the feds to resettle refugees and the unaccompanied alien minors. US Bishops are as hard Left as Obama on immigration. http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/03/31/rush-limbaugh-is-wrong-about-catholic-church/

A massive protest scheduled for July 18 and 19 across the United States is aimed at stopping the influx of Central American children flooding across the border, and more than a dozen smaller community protests already have played roles in stopping the children from being brought there.

Citizens in Westminster, Maryland; Oracle, Arizona; Vassar, Michigan; Greece, New York, and many other places have blocked the importation of illegal aliens into their communities through public protests, letters and official resolutions from elected leaders.

See full list below.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh led his show Tuesday with stories about the successful pushback against the illegals going on across America.

“Here’s what you do not know,” he said. “There are towns all over America standing up to this invasion, just like they did in Murrieta, California. You’re not hearing about it, however, and I am here to tell you why you’re not hearing about it. Westminster, Maryland, is a town standing up to it, just like Murrieta, California, did. Oracle, Arizona, is standing up to it.

“In Nebraska they’re gonna stand up to it when they find out. The governor is fit to be tied,” Limbaugh continued. “Upper Michigan, same thing. There are towns all over America standing up to this. There are protests happening, but they’re not being covered.”

But the mother of all protests promises to be Friday and Saturday. It’s dubbed the National Day of Protesting Against Immigration Reform, Amnesty & Border Surge, and it’s gaining support by the hour, said William Gheen, president of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and one of 11 sponsors. The main organizers are ALIPAC, Overpasses For America and MakeThemListen.com, Gheen said.

“Right now it’s looking like we’ll have a little more than 300 protest rallies large and small across the country.

[....]

Look here for a state by state listing of protest locations.

There is lots more, read it all.  Hohmann summarizes what is happening in a bunch of hot spots around the US.

History lesson on “nation of immigrants” mumbo-jumbo

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 16, 2014

In the middle of a piece by Patrick Buchanan yesterday, here at World Net Daily.  He gives a brief timeline that you need to know when someone in your community tries to shut you up with that tired old declaration that “we are a nation of immigrants,” and therefore we are expected to take in the world forever.

Below is Buchanan after explaining that our founders were all of similar background, religion, culture and language.

Later, in our history we abruptly slowed immigration for 40 years because we were overloaded (graph at right shows the dramatic slowdown). 

We were not a nation of immigrants in 1789.

They came later. From 1845-1849, the Irish fleeing the famine. From 1890-1920, the Germans. Then the Italians, Poles, Jews and other Eastern Europeans. Then, immigration was suspended in 1924.

From 1925 to 1965, the children and grandchildren of those immigrants were assimilated, Americanized. In strong public schools, they were taught our language, literature and history, and celebrated our holidays and heroes. We endured together through the Depression and sacrificed together in World War II and the Cold War.

By 1960, we had become truly one nation and one people.

So where are all the Leftist environmentalists? http://www.susps.org/overview/immigration.html

Along comes Senator Ted (don’t bring any to Hyannis) Kennedy:

Then, of course, in 1965, the Immigration and Nationality Act was championed by Ted Kennedy, who would 15 years later push through the Senate his Refugee Act of 1980 (signed into law by Jimmy Carter) and we were on our way to a borderless Nation.

Here we are again today flooded with millions of migrants who are not assimilating, will have little chance of assimilating even if they want to (are they going to assimilate when resettled into ghetto hell holes?), and others who have no plans to become Americans in any sense of the word.

But, they, impoverished masses, are not to blame for why we are no longer one Nation, one people, as Buchanan says.  The blame falls directly on the “progressives” and one-worlders who are tearing down America’s gates (and the gates of every first-world country), for what?   Do they really think a glorious one-world utopia awaits?  Or, do they just  want every country leveled to third-world squalor status.

Invitation to tell us what you want!

Over the years I have asked critics of this blog to write a guest post that explains to us what they want, do they want a borderless America?  If not, how many people do they want to let in?  Tell us how and when they would stop the flow. Then tell us where the millions who would come here from every corner of the world would work and how they would all be fed and housed.  I especially would like to hear from an avowed environmentalist who is also an advocate for more immigration.  And, the guest writer must write the piece without any emotional guilt-driven “nation of immigrants” B.S.

I’ve been waiting for years!

Burmese refugee shot by police after taking machete to police dog, threatening officers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 15, 2014

A representative of his refugee resettlement agency says he was mentally ill and the police handled it wrong.  Should have found a translator they say.

This is just one more example of the mental illness we are welcoming to America and the language problems being experienced by police and first responders.  See Waterloo, Iowa just last week, here.

Ja Ma Lo Day (facebook photo)

From Fox5 San Diego (hat tip: Robin):

SAN DIEGO – Friends of a young man with mental illness, who was killed by police after he threatened his family and police with knives and a stick at his City Heights apartment over the weekend, wondered if police could have handled it differently.

Patrol personnel went to the residence in the 3800 block of Menlo Avenue at 10:20 p.m. Sunday on reports that a man was threatening the lives of his family, according to San Diego police.

Officers arrived to find the man holding a knife and a stick and behaving in an “agitated” manner, Lt. Mike Hastings said. As the officers tried to persuade him to disarm himself, he allegedly began threatening them and retrieved a machete.

Officers tried in vain to subdue the suspect with stun guns and police dogs, Hastings said. When one of the canines approached, the man struck the animal on the back with the machete, according to police.

The suspect then allegedly swung the weapon at an officer, prompting two others to open fire. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died at the scene.

The man was identified by friends on a social media website as 21-year-old Burmese refugee from Myanmar named Ja Ma Lo Day. He was oldest brother of four siblings, all Burmese refugees who escaped their country due to religious and ethnic persecution, according to a friend of the family.

He suffered from mental illness and had been involved in several prior encounters with the police, according to the online posting.

How many Burmese are in the US?

Here is one accounting of how many we have resettled over the last 12 years from Burma and camps in Thailand.  They are still coming.

*Burmese refugees resettled in the US since 2001: 97,713

*Chin Refugees resettled in the US since 2001: 30,453

*Karen Refugees resettled in the US since 2001: 57,962

*The rest ethnic groups from Burma in the US since 2001: 9297

This last number above would include Burmese Muslims/Rohingya

Baptists caring for illegal aliens in Texas and beyond: Doing well by doing good!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 15, 2014

Hey, Glen Beck, they don’t need your money!  This is big business!

Update July 16th:  It is all about the money, turns out these Baptists had a plan to buy a hotel for the kids (bet it was an inside deal!) which came and went today as the media got wind of it, hereMore here on how much BCFS is getting from HHS this year!

This one line in a recent news item on the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ (aka fake refugees) swamping the Rio Grande area of Texas caught my eye (emphasis is mine):

From Dec 2012 to January 2014, Baptist Child & Family Services received $62,111,126 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Program.”

BCFS President and CEO, Kevin Dinnin, pulls down a cool $400,000 plus in salary and benefits from a “related organization.”

Baptist Child & Family Services (BCFS) is new to me (it’s not one of our usual nine, and in fact it may be bigger budget-wise than a number of the federal contractors we are familiar with).

And, then last night Glen Beck on O’Reilly said he was taking nearly $2 million in charitable donations to Texas on Saturday for the “children” because the “churches” needed helpsurely not this group of Baptists or various branches of Catholic Charities in Texas because they are rolling in federal dough (your tax dollars at work)!

Expanding nationwide!

Check out Baptist Child and Family Services (BCFS) which sent out a press release (undated) that says it is expanding nationwide to provide living facilities and other services for the “unaccompanied foreign youth” through grants from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (in HHS):

BCFS, a global health and human services organization headquartered in Texas, today announced the expansion of its International Children’s Services program to serve unaccompanied foreign youth throughout the country. The new offices, located in New York, NY; Miami, FL; Houston, TX; Dallas, TX; Sacramento-area, CA; and Los Angeles-area, CA, will serve as regional hubs for BCFS’ new family support and evaluation programs.

BCFS will lead these programs as part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services – Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) strategic plan to provide safe and stable homes for international youth who are granted permission to stay with family or sponsors already living in the country.

[....]

BCFS’ International Children’s Services has provided care through the federal ORR program since 2007. In addition to the new family support and evaluation program, BCFS operates unaccompanied youth campuses throughout Texas and California. These residential facilities provide shelter, counseling, case management and education to youth while the federal government determines the appropriate next steps toward reconnecting them with their families.

Ahhhhh!  Wait until you see their most recent Form 990 (they will soon have the US Conference of Catholic Bishops beat with the amount of money they get from you!).

See page 9 of their 2012 Form 990, that is where the federal grants are located (they used to be on page one).

Their total revenue that year was $67,325,953, and $63,321,669 came from the federal government in the form of grants.  That is 94% of their entire revenue is tax payer money. 

Hey, Glen Beck, do you get it!  They don’t need your charitable donations when they are effectively a branch of the US government, but as a phony non-profit they are not accountable to the taxpayers (try doing a FOIA request and see how far you get!)

And, then it really gets fun.  Have a look at the salaries these “humanitarians” are pulling down.  It sure pays to be a do-gooder these days!

Total salaries and wages for 2012 topped $33 million for that one year!  (p. 10)  And, now get this they have seven staff members making 6-figure salaries.  President and CEO Kevin Dinnin makes $447,799 in salary and benefits from a related organization, possibly BCFS EMD.

If you are wondering why we aren’t simply shipping them back—there is obviously big money to be made in the illegal alien care industry.

Makes me want to barf!

2nd Tennessee alert on border surge and what citizens need to do!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 15, 2014

Editor:  Every day since we posted the first action alert from Tennessee citizen activists who want to make sure the ‘unaccompanied minors’ now surging across the Texas border don’t end up in Tennessee, it has been our Top Post every day (see right hand sidebar for Top Posts). 

This is a follow-up alert for Tennesseans which readers in other states might use as a model.  Tell your elected officials wherever you live—no illegal alien drops in your state!

And, tell them to suspend all other refugee resettlement in FY2014 and FY2015 until the border crisis is resolved.

 

2nd ALERT Re: Border Surge and Tennessee – New Information

Refugee resettlement contractors say don’t give their money to the children. They want the money for their businesses! These contractors are paid to bring refugees to Tennessee.

This year Congress increased funding for refugee resettlement contractor business to $1.489 billion, an increase from last year’s $1.12 billion but still short the additional $1.6 billion that refugee contractors demanded.

Federal refugee contractors like the TN Office for Refugees (TOR) operating in Tennessee, are complaining that the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) may use some of the contractors’ money to help the children crossing the border. TOR says that if their money is reduced they won’t be able to help the refugees they have brought to Tennessee. To date, there has been no suggestion by TOR that they would reduce the number of people they plan to bring to the State.

The federal contractors have been directed by their leadership to lobby Congress for more money, which in part is why Pres. Obama’s original request of $2 billion in emergency spending for the border is now $3.7 billion. If Congress approves this request, the illegals will get to stay and TOR will get all its money. Why shouldn’t the contractors get to save their cake and eat it too?

A high percentage of minors are trying to reunite with family members living in the U.S. who may not be here legally. In 2013, President Obama directed immigration agents to try not to deport illegal immigrant parents in the U.S. who have minor children. The refugee contractors are paid to unite the minors with anyone claiming kinship regardless of whether that person is in the country legally.

Once these minors are released, they must attend public school. In Tennessee, K-12 education and all services including breakfast and lunch programs, must be provided. Under certain circumstances, TennCare must pay for their emergency medical care. Will Tennessee schools also have to ban the American flag to avoid offending non-citizens?

Eventually, the illegal minors are supposed to appear for an immigration hearing. Of the $3.7 billion Obama has requested, approximately $15 million would pay lawyers to represent the minors at their hearings. The ACLU has already sued to make sure the minors have lawyers, citing a report that says that immigrants with lawyers are five times more likely to win their cases than those who represent themselves.

On July 12th, Rep. Marsha Blackburn visited the Ft. Sill relocation facility in Oklahoma where approximately 1,100 illegal minors are housed. Is she considering a recommendation for TN?

Pals yuk it up on Inauguration Day 2013: Harry Reid, Lamar Alexander, Chuck Schumer and Barack Obama. http://abcnews.go.com/meta/search/imageDetail?format=plain&source=http://abcnews.go.com/images/US/ap_inauguration_ip_002_130121

Tennessee’s political establishment including Gov. Haslam, Lt. Gov Ron Ramsey and Speaker Beth Harwell and Tennessee’s Republicans in D.C. except Rep. DeJarlais, signed on as co-chairs of Lamar Alexander’s reelection campaign.

They agreed to help Lamar after he voted for amnesty.

Contact the D.C. politicians and tell them that if they plan to help the minors, then:

• TOR and other federal contractors must accept a reduction in federal money and suspend further FY2014 resettlement in Tennessee.

• Federal contractors must suspend all other FY2015 refugee resettlement until the border surge issues are resolved. Every year the U.S. resettles approximately 140,000 refugees and asylees; estimates of border crossers will well exceed these totals.

Handy timeline of the border invasion

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 14, 2014

Reader Bruce sent us this great timeline prepared by the blog—The Last Refuge.  Someone did a lot of work!

I would just like to add a 2004 “backgrounder” by Don Barnett published by the Center for Immigration Studies.  We posted on Barnett’s report last month, here.  The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) in Health and Human Services and their contractors knew for some time that the rush on the border was coming.

In fact, in June of last year we attended a Pennsylvania meeting of the ORR and its contractors and they were predicting large numbers of ‘unaccompanied alien children’ in future years.  I wondered what they knew that we didn’t know.

The contractors are paid to either care for the children in contractor-run facilities or find them foster care (here is just one such attempt to find foster care).

 

Addendum:  Just so I don’t lose this link, here are some more stats on the cost and other stats from ORR via News5.
