For the latest news on “faith-based groups” lucrative grants for Unaccompanied Minors’ care, see the Conservative Tree House/The last refuge

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 23, 2014

‘Sundance’ at the Conservative Tree House blog has been doing great research on the federal grants for the illegal alien children.  Thanks to several of our readers for sending a post from Sunday and another one from yesterday.

What a relief to know that so many bloggers and now ‘real’ reporters too! are catching on to the raid on the federal treasury by groups completely unaccountable to US taxpayers and pretending to do their ‘good-works’ entirely out of Christian charity (Hey, do you think Glen Beck has finally figured it out?).

From Sundance’ on Sunday:

Using information within the TAGGS system for Health and Human Services we are able to identify the recipients for Grants specifically designated for “Unaccompanied Alien Children”, or UAC’s.

With that data, a few more search tools, some time and a little more research, we are able to identify the locations of facilities throughout the country where the HHS grants are being directed and the UAC’s are being transferred/housed.   There are essentially two broad types:  Residence Care, and Transitional to Foster Care Services.

From the FY 2014 HHS Grants we can identify the communities where direct HHS UAC funds have been sent.    We can identify the specific facility, or the organization supporting the foster care placement.  If you live in, or close to, one of the listed cities below, the UAC’s transfers are already in your community.

Go to the website for more and to see the list, click here.

Then yesterday they focused on one of the “big three” they had previously identified (here).

A Texas Media outlet has just caught on to something we discovered and have shared with you.  Previously we identified the BIG THREE large non-profit corporations getting massive grants from DHS and HHS.   These were the “faith based groups” President Obama met in Dallas 7/9/14.

They are, listed smallest to largest:

      • #3  Bronze –   U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and/or, U.S. Catholic Charities $70,000,000+
      • #2  Silver – Southwest Key Programs Inc  $122,000,000+
      • #1  Gold -  Baptist Child and Family Services Emergency Management Division (BCFS-EMD) $270,000,000+

Today we focus on one.  “Southwest Key Programs Inc”….

There is more, read on.

For all of our coverage over the last few years on ‘unaccompanied minors’ go here.

Secrecy and unaccountability is the problem!

I know some will argue that these “charities” can do a better job then if federal agencies were completely in charge, but that’s debatable.  For me, the problem is the secrecy in their operations and the total lack of accountability by these groups pretending to be private non-profits driven only by a religious charity motive and not accountable to any elected officials.  As I have said before, just try doing a Freedom of Information Act request for one of these arms of government—yes, that is what they are.  They will then hide behind their ‘private non-profit’ shield!

And, I don’t know about this Baptist bunch, but I can assure you that the other federal refugee resettlement contractors*** are always lobbying Congress for more refugees, for amnesty, and for more money (and these Leftists use your money to do their lobbying!!!).

***The contractors (we may have to start adding grant recipient big dogs Baptist Children and Family Services and Southwest Key Programs to our list):

Invasion of Europe round-up: UN bullies the West (so what else is new!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 23, 2014

Editor:  LOL! This is one way to deal with my growing backlog!

“No expense spared” as Saudi Arabia builds the world’s best security fence. The UN and its “humanitarian” lapdogs are silent. http://www.homelandsecurityresearch.com/2008/06/saudi-arabia-border-fence-market-largest-in-the-world/

~UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Socialist Antonio Gutteres opines that European financial support for Syrian refugees is no longer enough and that more countries (besides Germany and Sweden) need to open their arms to mostly Muslim ‘refugees’ and invite them in.

~They are breaking into Spain through Morocco, but Spain is not a welcoming place say Syrian refugees who want to move on to Germany, Sweden or France.

~Bulgarian “anti-refugee” border fence ticks-off the international humanitarian industrial complex.  But they say nothing that I know of about the best border fences in the world protecting Saudi Arabia!   We have reported on several occasions that S.A. rounds up, and deports, all those would-be asylum seekers who do manage to get into the “Kingdom.”

~Longer wait for Syrians trying to get into Sweden, is the slowdown on purpose?

~Italian police arrest Somali (Italian national) human trafficker. Italy has rescued 66,000 illegal aliens entering Italy by sea in the last six months!  20 Somalis among 600 illegal aliens rescued by Italian Navy this week.

~Turkey attempts to clear Istanbul of Syrian beggars living on the streets.  Turkey, a Muslim country, has been “welcoming” but the citizens there are losing patience now.

~Muslim immigrants turn Paris into war zone.

Notice a common thread.  Truth-be-told, Europe isn’t so welcoming to ‘asylum seekers’ because the illegal aliens trying to break in are almost all Muslims.  Not even Saudi Arabia wants them.

If Saudi Arabia can build a 1,600-mile-long fence, why can’t we?   Just asking!

Phoenix Liberian gang-rape case dragged on for five years due to cultural unawareness of US legal system

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 23, 2014

Hey, how would you like to use that excuse if you were in trouble with the law, surely they all had American lawyers familiar with our legal system!

Result in most portions of the case—case dismissed.  No deportations!

‘Pungentpeppers’ spotted this update of a story we reported extensively back in 2009.  (Here are six posts dating from July to December 2009).  Why so many Liberians in America, they are “temporary” refugees, here.

The case involved 4 boys who lured an eight-year-old girl into a backyard shed and raped her.  Without going back and reading the old stories, I recall that her parents blamed the girl.  (Were they Muslims?)

And, isn’t this great news, after finding child abuse in the girl’s home, she is sent back to these same parents.

From Arizona Central:

Rape was led by a teenager who admitted guilt and was sentenced to probation. http://www.peopletopeople.info/id485.html

The child abuse case against two Liberian immigrants whose 8-year-old daughter was sexually assaulted at a Phoenix apartment complex in 2009 will be dismissed pending their compliance with the state Department of Child Safety.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Bruce Cohen ordered that the couple, who were arrested in 2009 on unrelated allegations, meet with him three times over the next year to ensure that all child services requirements have been met.

After one year of compliance, the case will be dismissed, Cohen said.

Maricopa County Attorney’s Office spokesman Jerry Cobb said such agreements are not uncommon.

The parents were arrested in July 2009 after their daughter was gang raped at their apartment complex near 43rd Avenue and Thomas Road by four underage boys, police records show.

The case against the parents is unrelated to the rape, but signs of child abuse surfaced as police investigated the sexual assault, records show.

During the investigation, detectives found evidence of abuse that dated back two years, records show.

The Republic is not publishing the names of the parents to protect the privacy of their daughter, who was returned to her parents’ custody last week.

The four boys, who are also Liberian immigrants, were arrested following the reported rape, records show. Police said the boys lured the girl into a shed at the apartment complex and took turns sexually assaulting her.

One of the boys was taken to a juvenile rehabilitation center and placed on probation, records show. The other three were ruled incompetent to stand trial because of their lack of cultural awareness of the United States’ legal system, records show.

The case against the parents took five years to resolve, mainly because they were unfamiliar with the U.S. judicial system. The couple was ordered to be educated in American court proceedings, as well as other cultural differences, records show.

Additionally, the two speak a language so obscure that the court had to call an interpreter from Minnesota to translate the proceedings over speaker phone on Friday.

Note this last line about an interpreter—all of you towns and cities “welcoming” refugees (Athens, GA!) must be aware of the fact that you are on the hook for the cost of interpreter services for just about anything your refugee needs (including when they end up in our criminal justice system).  Imagine what this case cost Maricopa County!

By the way, Phoenix is a “preferred resettlement site” chosen by the US State Department, ORR, and their contractors.

Faux conservative lectures America on the border crisis

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 22, 2014

“Conservative” columnist Kathyrn Jean Lopez is acting like a liberal—lecturing us in a guilt-trip laden rant on National Review Online.   I thought they were supposed to be conservative over there?

Ms. Lopez must know that the US Bishops and Catholic Charities are living off US taxpayer charity (aka our tax dollars). Disclaimer required when pimping for the Pope!

In her pontificating piece, Ms Lopez tells us that the Pope just wants us to give love and understanding to the border invaders.  (Hat tip: Paul)

‘Shepherd of the leading charitable organization in the world,’ she calls him.

How about they first admit that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and Catholic Charities are receiving the majority of their funding to care for the “children” (and other refugees) from the American taxpayer through federal grants and contracts!

Here and here.

Surely the Pope knows that American taxpayers pay for their Christian charity! So he is in no position to lecture us!

And, surely Katheryn Jean Lopez isn’t living under a rock and has been following the news recently as the public is becoming increasingly aware of the greedy “religious” hands picking our pockets in the name of Christian and Jewish charity.

By the way, tell me! what is conservative about taxpayer dollars by the billions flowing to phony non-profits and “religious” charities that are completely unaccountable to the people who pay the do-gooders’ salaries?

I want the Bishops and the Pope to place a disclaimer on every guilt-tripping screed they write or is written for them by a supposed conservative like Lopez.  The disclaimer would go something like this:

The USCCB and Catholic charities are receiving (and have been for decades) the majority of their funding for their migration program as grants and contracts from the US government.

Then they can lecture all they want about “welcoming” and “protecting” the “children” (but few will listen!).

Ms. Lopez needs a disclaimer too!  Use secular media to spread the Gospel (here) she says!

One last thing, the US Bishops and Catholic Charities, as the leading resettlement agencies in the US, resettle more Muslims into America than any other resettlement agency contracted by the US State Department and use your money to do it.  (Just saying!)

For new readers:

All of our coverage of the ‘unaccompanied minors’ invasion of America is here.

The archive extends back several years and includes posts about the USCCB and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service receiving federal grants for many years, prior to this one, to care for the “unaccompanied alien children.”

Be sure to see this post about the Bishops visit to Central America in 2013—did they set the migration in motion?  Last year, they were predicting 60,000 “children” for 2014!

Senators urge extension of (sham) Temporary Protected Status for Liberians

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 21, 2014

Demonstrating once again what a sham Temporary Protected Status is, Senators want Obama to extend temporary refugee status to Liberians who have been here “temporarily” since the late 1980′s!   Seems to me that the civil war in Liberia is over and this “LEGAL” status for those here originally illegally should just end.

There must be one hell-uv-a lot of Liberians in Rhode Island because I saw Senator Jack Reed spearheading this same effort several years ago.  Here he is joined by the usual Senate Open Borders gang.

Senators Jack Reed and Elizabeth Warren, working for the middle class (must be middle class immigrants!).

Check out here what other countries enjoy this “temporary” protection.  Liberia is in the Deferred Enforced Departure category.   Reed’s press release and letter to the White House on Friday are here.

From Political News:

WASHINGTON, DC – In an effort to preserve the status of Liberians living legally in the United States, U.S. Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) led a letter signed by fourteen of his colleagues to President Obama urging an extension of Deferred Enforced Departure (DED). The current DED extension is set to expire on September 30, 2014, which could cause Liberians living here legally on temporary status to be deported.

The usual suspects, but where is his pal Elizabeth Warren?  Come to think of it, why isn’t Warren here?

Senators joining Reed in sending the letter include: Charles Schumer (D-NY), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Chris Coons (D-DE), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Ben Cardin (D-MD), Cory Booker (D-NJ), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Al Franken (D-MN), Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

[....]

Since 1991, Liberians have relied on short-term provisions of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) or DED from Presidents of both political parties to extend their legal right to remain in the United States. These individuals, many of whom have been in the United States since fleeing Liberia in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, have retained a legal status that allows them to live, work, and pay taxes in the United States.

Reed and the Liberians were expecting that “comprehensive immigration reform” would resolve their problem with its blanket amnesty.

The senators wrote: “the current system of short-term DED renewals leaves Liberians and their families with perennial uncertainty about whether they will be able to remain members of the communities they have come to call home. For this reason, while we urge you to grant a lengthy extension of at least two years and to make this announcement well in advance of the current DED expiration, we continue to call for comprehensive immigration reform that includes an adjustment to permanent resident status for qualifying Liberians and their families.”

The next time you hear one of your friends say:  “Legal immigration is o.k., it is illegal that I object to” remember TPS and pop them one (gently!).  Yes, it is legal (forever)Once granted a temporary stay in America, they never go home.  Check out that list again—it includes Syrians now.

Two ‘musts’ for today! Learn more about the ‘Baptist’ big dogs and see NumbersUSA’s map

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 20, 2014

Kevin Dinnin (lower left), CEO of probably the largest federal contractor resettling the Central American teens to your towns at the Dallas meeting with Obama and Perry.

 

Update July 21st:  Judy points us to Clarice Feldman at the American Thinker picking up the story about “faith-based” contractors making out like bandits on the backs of taxpayers.  What a relief to know that more and more Americans are getting the message.

Readers, please read this incredibly thorough post by ‘sundance’ at The Last Refuge about Obama’s meeting in Dallas with “faith-based” groups.  Especially learn more about Kevin Dinnin (we told you about him here and here), CEO of Baptist Children and Family Services.    Hat tip: Judy.  LOL! I think we are on the same track (see my post just a few minutes ago, here).

And, then be sure to see NumbersUSA’s fantastic interactive map on where “the children” are being sent.  If you learn of a new grant and new destination for the ‘unaccompanied minors’ be sure to tell Numbers!

See all of our posts, extending back several years, on the ‘unaccompanied minors’ invasion of America and the resettlement contractors getting their piece of the pie.  I admit that when I heard the Office of Refugee Resettlement representative talking about the coming “children’s” migration in June 2013 at a meeting in Pennsylvania, here, I had no idea it was going to be this big (but I think they knew!).

Also, I think the US Conference of Catholic Bishops may have fueled the fire (that was already smoldering) when they visited Central America in 2013, here.  Other than on issues of marriage and abortion, the Bishops are as far Left as Obama!

It’s Sunday morning, is your church reaching into taxpayers’ pockets “for the children?”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 20, 2014

…..it is time to find out!

Decades ago ‘great minds’ in the leadership of the hard Left (ensconced in private foundations) kicked off their “greening of the churches” propaganda campaign.  It’s a long story, but I saw it up close and personal.  The concept was that the way to reach Americans and change their minds, bringing them around to the Leftist view of the world on the environment (social issues too!), was to reach them in their churches.   Of course, good people, church-going Americans, would be concerned about saving the Earth—right!

I expect at the same time they also began infiltrating the churches and synagogues with the concept of a borderless world to save the poor and downtrodden. What Christian or Jew wouldn’t be moved by the idea of helping the poor?

Unfortunately, they (Communists, Socialists, Leftwingers, whatever you want to call them) have now gone a step further, past the point of simple education and propaganda, and have figured out how to fund their Leftist political worldview with your tax dollars through your own churches and religious institutions—supposedly to save the CHILDREN!

Additionally, some naive and unprincipled Republicans don’t even see a problem with giving your money to their “cause.”  In fact, George Bush lit the fire on the run on the US Treasury with his 2001 Faith-based neighborhood initiative.

Your money goes to “community organizers!”  Remember ACORN!  This is the same as funding ACORN whose job it was/is to get the “poor” signed up for every welfare program they can find and at the same time register them to vote!  The only difference is that the “refugee” contractors work with immigrants but do the exact same thing!

The “Religious” federal contractors!

We have written non-stop at RRW for years about the “religious Left” represented by the major federal refugee resettlement contractors.  We try to name them as often as we can!   Here are all the contractors (3 are secular, so we will leave them out for now, but know that they too are getting big bucks for ‘the children.’)

***The contractors (we may have to start adding grant recipient big dogs Baptist Children and Family Services to our list):

We have written ad nauseum about the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services (LIRS), but know that Church World Service representing some mainline Protestant Churches are in on the scheme (by the way, you may know them as the “Crop Walk” organizers).

The Presbyterians have a statement, here, in support of the border invasion and advising church members what to do.  Methodists in Baltimore got a cool $2.4 million here to house ‘unaccompanied minors.’

Episcopal Migration Ministries has its hands in Caesar’s pockets too.  Here is a recent article on the Episcopal involvement in the recent border crisis.  This reference to Abbott House in Irvington, New York leads us to this recent federal grant of just short of $3 million for the children.

Also, World Relief Corporation (headquartered in Baltimore, MD just like LIRS) is really World Relief National Association of Evangelicals, in case any of you Evangelicals think your churches aren’t into this racket!

And then there is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, here, which wants money, money, money, and any critics of robbing the Treasury investigated by the Southern Poverty Law Center!

Action Alert!

It is impossible for me to keep up with all the money the contractors are getting from the US Treasury and it is even more difficult to track all of the money going to subcontractors and individual churches, so I recommend that you look carefully at what your own church is up to in helping destroy American sovereignty and our way of life and spread the word in your own faith community!

And, also let NumbersUSA know so they can add your town to their fantastic interactive map!

Legal Representation for Central American Minors: WHAT ABOUT THE MAYANS?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 20, 2014

Editors note:  From time to time we post good comments from our readers.  This is another excellent piece by reader ‘pungentpeppers’ with an entirely new and problematic angle on the ‘unaccompanied minors’ crisis that few are aware of!  See our category “comments worth noting” for more reader commentary.  Our extensive coverage of the ‘unaccompanied minors’ border surge is here.

 

Certain members of Congress want a law requiring taxpayer-funded legal representation for underage Central American migrants.  I’ll ignore for now that there are not enough immigration attorneys, or room in our courts, to handle tens of thousands of long, drawn-out, and often dubious, cases.  Instead, let’s focus on the big interpretation wall we’re going to hit because, as usual, nobody remembers the Mayans!

Attempting to learn English, 15-year-old Hugo speaks Q’anjob’al an indigenous Mayan language. http://wvpublic.org/post/language-barriers-pose-challenges-mayan-migrant-children

Not everybody in Central America speaks Spanish.  This fact is slowly dawning on our politicians.  San Francisco’s Mayor Ed Lee in an interview with the San Francisco Bay Guardian said:  “I’m trying to wrap my arms around the fact that many of these kids don’t speak Spanish.  They speak Mayan and different languages.”

Mayan is not one language but a native language family that includes many mutually unintelligible tongues.  About 40 percent of Guatemalans are Mayan, and they speak around two dozen native languages, including M’am, Q’anjob’al, K’itche and Ixil.

Although young people who arrive here could learn basic English, if such a law were enacted, they would still need help to communicate with their lawyers and the courts.  They would need legal interpreters.  Here’s where it gets messy.  For the Guatemalan Mayan language called “Ixil”, there is ONE legal interpreter in the whole country!  Her name is Sheba Velasco and she’s been very busy of late.  Hers is a mentally-stressful job.  People expect her to help them stay in the U.S., but there’s nothing she can do legally for them except interpret the language.  There’s so much work, she told NPR, I can’t do all of it. It’s hard.”

Sheba Velasco has an important message about the unaccompanied minors currently flooding the country.  She doesn’t agree with parents sending their children on the dangerous journeys, she told CBC Canada. For starters, their safety is at risk, but second, she’d prefer they stay in Guatemala where they can practice their cultural traditions and language. She knows many families are poor and struggle but Velasco said coming to America is not necessarily how to get a better life.

“What I would like to share with them is, you can make it where you are,” she said.

She feels badly that families fall for the lies they are told by smugglers. The coyotes, as they’re called, show photos of the U.S. around her village, and tell young people how easy it is to make money there. Parents essentially sign their houses over to the banks to get money to pay the smugglers. Their children get caught at the border, are sent home and everything is lost, Velasco explained. In the worst-case scenario, their children don’t even make it back.

“I would not send my children,” she said. “Their life is more important to me.”

The situation of these rural Mayan young people belies the current media gospel that everyone from Central America is fleeing from gangs.  They don’t live in cities and they don’t speak Spanish – they can’t even communicate with gangs!  As economic migrants, under our laws, there’s no chance they will obtain legal asylum in our country.  We should not foolhardily rush into shackling ourselves into providing legal representation, when there are not enough interpreters and their chances of winning such cases are practically nil.

Lutherans again with their Christian charity claptrap!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 19, 2014

I can’t take it!  We are paying for their public relations campaign! 97% of their funding comes from taxpayers while they pretend that what they do is out of the goodness of their Christian hearts!

The nerve of these people sending out press releases with all this garbage about how much they love the migrants without mentioning that they are BEING PAID FOR THEIR POLITICAL ACTIVISM ON BEHALF OF ILLEGAL ALIENS AND REFUGEES, and how they are working with the government.  THEY ARE WORKING FOR THE GOVERNMENT AND THAT MEANS YOU AS TAXPAYERS!

I would love just once for them to admit that they are federal contractors*** in one of these deceptive PR pieces that are gobbled up by gullible (or worse, complicit) media outlets.  And, by the way, where the hell is the ACLU?

From Digital Journal:

LIRS CEO Hartke: “God is calling” (and God pays well!).

BALTIMORE, July 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — As the humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied migrant children and families fleeing Central America and crossing the border into the U.S. continues, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is working closely with government leaders, faith-based organizations and community partners to scale up its support and response efforts. “These children and families are leaving perilous circumstances in their home countries. They deserve safety, due process, and compassion,” says Linda Hartke, President and CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.

While the groundswell of love and support has largely been omitted from the continuing immigration debate, it has been deeply felt and noticed by faith-based and immigrant rights organizations across America in the form of people offering housing, wanting to deliver material goods, praying and advocating on behalf of children and families.

“The outpouring of support from Americans for the children and families at the center of the refugee crisis on our southern border continues to increase,” says Hartke. “In the past several months as the crisis has worsened, we have seen a surge in the number of calls from people who are volunteering to become foster parents to children in need. Many have told us that they ‘feel like God is calling’ them to take care of these children.”

 Network of “heroic service partners” are all PAID subcontractors!

“We feel a special responsibility towards children,” adds Hartke. “They should be kept safe and be with a loving family. Our network of heroic service partners all across the country support children and new foster families with excellence and compassion, but more foster families are urgently needed.”

They are bragging about how many (hundreds!) of calls they receive from loving people, called by God, wishing to sponsor the ‘unaccompanied alien teens,’ so then why send out this new appeal?

See their “heroic service partners” (aka federal subcontractors) here.  And, take a look at their posh headquarters building at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor while you are there!

LIRS and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops had been the largest contractors taking care of the illegal alien children, but have since been eclipsed by this Baptist gang out of Texas.   It is dog-eat-dog out there in the world of  “Christian” federal contractor competition!  And the new Baptist big dogs seem to be getting more than their fair share of the chow.

If you want to let LIRS (really LIARS) know how you feel, especially if you are of the Lutheran faith, about the “refugee” crisis at the border, this is their lobbyist/PR persons contact info:

Press contact: Miji Bell
410-230-2841 mbell@lirs.org

Stop pretending to be a “humanitarian” “religious” charity! How about some honesty for a change!

See their 2012 Form 990 here (the most recent one available).

They had a total revenue of $41,757,518 and $40,417,752 came from government grants (you!).

97% of their funds comes from government.   

Let’ talk about salaries for these quasi-government agencies (aka religious charities)!

They have 5 employees in the 6-figure salary range including CEO Hartke who made $214,237 in salary and benefits that year for her Godly good works.  And, for the record, Hartke is not the highest paid of the head-honchos of the federal contractors.***

Hartke makes more per year than a Member of Congress and about the same as a Supreme Court Justice, but no one can scrutinize their budget because they are supposed to be a private non-profit!

I guess these Lutherans missed the message about Caesar’s money!

I apologize to long-time readers who know all this, but we are getting so many new readers every day who have never heard this before that it bears repeating.

See all of our coverage of ‘unaccompanied minors’ invading America here.  And be sure to see one major publication that has the guts to report on the massive amount of taxpayer dollars flowing to phony non-profits.

Let’s send all the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ to Vermont!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 18, 2014

Lots of open space in Vermont! Let’s fill ‘er up!

 

Of course, my first choice is Washington, DC, but surely the second most deserving location is Vermont.

Update July 21st:  Reader Jake, took up my challenge (below) and came up with a new motto for Vermont:

Vermont: the Green Card State!  

(I love it!)

Did you see this Washington Post article (The Fix) this week by Jaime Fuller entitled, Is Vermont the solution to the border crisis?   That is the dumbest title I’ve seen in awhile (well, maybe in the last hour considering the dumb title at The Australian in my previous post).

The wise men of Vermont: Democrats Senator Patrick Leahy and Governor Pete Shumlin. We will take the aliens to the Green Mountain State!

So let’s answer the question for them—Yes, send the illegal aliens (all of them!) crashing the border right now to ultra-progressive Vermont because they deserve it for sending Patrick Leahy to Washington!

Besides the fact that they, the voters of Vermont, deserve it, it would be a fantastic social experiment.  By saturating one small geographic area with thousands upon thousands of migrants, we will see in short order what America will be like in decades to come if we open our borders as apparently Senator Leahy and Gov. Shumlin would like to see!

Here is The Fix (emphasis is mine):

In its efforts to figure out what to do with the many Central American unaccompanied minors coming to the United States — about 60,000 in recent weeks — the White House has been asking several states if they have the resources to house some of these children. The office of Vermont’s Democratic Gov. Pete Shumlin (D) told a local newspaper, “We’ve let HHS know that we are willing to investigate locations and logistical requirements and work with them to determine if Vermont would be an appropriate host state.”

It’s perhaps unsurprising that the state would be willing to help. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D) has been a vocal proponent of immigration reform — as has fellow Vermonter Sen. Bernie Sanders (I.).

[....]

The fact that their constituency back in Vermont is a big part of that support is less well known; about 1,500 undocumented immigrants live in Vermont, many working on dairy farms….

Vermont welcomes refugees!

Vermont has welcomed many legal immigrants recently, too. In the past 25 years, more than 6,300 refugees have moved to Vermont as part of a federal refugee resettlement program, according to the local alternative newspaper Seven Days. That total includes “1,705 Bosnians, mostly Muslims; 1,437 Bhutanese, many of whom had been living in exile in Nepal; and about 1,000 Africans fleeing violence in Burundi, Congo, Rwanda, Somalia and Sudan.”

In 2010, Leahy introduced the Refugee Protection Act, which “would strengthen the country’s commitment to protecting refugees fleeing persecution or torture.”

Not all the Libs are so welcoming:

Seven Days’ report from this January says that the program seemed largely successful, although there have been incidents of racial insensitivity, and worries about reaching a “tipping” point. One worker at the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program told Seven Days, “We’ve been going through a long recession and everybody has been trying to look out for themselves.” There are several immigration advocacy groups in Vermont –Vermont Immigration and Asylum Advocates and Migrant Justice are also among the more prominent organizations. Advocacy groups are currently in the middle of a big push on improving housing for immigrant dairy workers.

Since writer Jaime Fuller never answers the title’s question, let’s help answer it.

Send tens of thousands of the illegal aliens (phony refugees) to Vermont and find the “tipping point!”

I would love to see a bumper sticker campaign something like this—“Illegal aliens welcome in Vermont!”   (or something more cleverly worded).  (Sorry Judy!)
