Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff warns of open borders invitation to ISIL

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2014

They will be coming in with the “children!”

It is all over the news in the last few days, but just to be sure you have seen it, here is CNS News on our southern border and the Islamists’ great opportunity.  LOL!  I should post this in our new category — So what did they expect?

It isn’t really funny, but go back and check out our post on James O’Keefe, dressed as Osama bin Laden, as he wades (unimpeded) across the Rio Grande.

Secretary of Defense Hagel and Joint Chiefs Dempsey at a press conference this past week.

CNS News (hat tip: Erich):

(CNSNews.com) – Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at a Pentagon press briefing yesterday that “because of open borders and immigration issues,” the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is an “immediate threat.”

In the context of this ISIL threat, Dempsey said he had had conversations with his European colleagues “about their southern flank.” He did not specifically mention the U.S.-Mexico border, which is the southern flank of the United States.

Seven years ago, then-National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell publicly warned that terrorists were coming across the U.S.-Mexico border, and that “a significant number of Iraqis” had been “smuggled across illegally” the previous year.

We have been writing about the OTMs (Other than Mexicans) for years here at RRW too (with a special interest in the Somalis coming in that way).

And, by the way, although we have an exposed “southern flank” so does Europe as we have reported in our series on the ‘invasion of Europe’ where the mostly Muslim illegal migrants come through North Africa (and the Libyan hell hole that Obama and his gals created) and across the Mediterranean Sea.

Bulgaria may extend border fence with Turkey to slow invasion

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 21, 2014

This is one more in our ‘invasion of Europe’ series.  And, one more story about tiny Bulgaria being beaten-up by the international humanitarian industrial complex working tirelessly to erase borders worldwide.

From Reuters:

(Reuters) – Bulgaria may extend the fence at its border with Turkey to stop more refugees from Syria and Iraq entering illegally, a top interior ministry official said on Wednesday, while the foreign minister warned of “terrorism imports” to the EU member state.

The problem border is the one with Turkey.

The Balkan country is considering adding 130 km (80 miles) of barbed-wire fencing to an existing 33-km fence along the 240-km southeastern border which, the interior ministry’s Chief Secretary Svetoslav Lazarov, said would save 2 million levs ($1.36 million) a month on policing the area.

“It would be a prohibitively facility,” Lazarov told reporters. “Our country has enough border points and those who want to come as a refugee can go through them.”

More than 10,000 refugees, mainly Syrians, entered Bulgaria illegally last year from Turkey and, in an attempt to limit the influx, authorities deployed over 1,000 police officers.

Bulgarian authorities said the Black Sea state could face an even greater influx in the coming months due to intensified fighting in Iraq in recent weeks.

There is more, including the usual whack from the human rights agitators.  I always wonder why they aren’t whacking Turkey for letting the migrants pass through to the Bulgarian border.  Legitimate asylum seekers are supposed to ask for protection in the first safe country they come to—in this case Turkey.

Australia may take 4,000 Christian Iraqi and Syrian refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 14, 2014

The Abbott government, which is constantly beaten-up by those who want Australia to take in the world, is considering resettling persecuted Christians, but that isn’t enough for the no-borders pushers.

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

The Abbott government is considering offering refuge to as many as 4000 Iraqis and Syrians after the new Anglican Primate of Australia, Philip Freier, called for asylum in Australia for Christians facing slaughter in northern Iraq.

Dr Freier, Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne, said he had written to Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Immigration Minister Scott Morrison asking that they emulate France in offering refuge to Christians facing forced conversion to Islam or death.

By the way, has anyone seen anything from the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service or any of the other US “religious” resettlement contractors saying we should be taking CHRISTIANS into the US now?  Or, are they so politically-correct and fearful of saying anything against Islam that they keep their mouths shut?

(New readers of RRW probably don’t know that Catholics and Lutherans are responsible for much of the Muslim refugee resettlement happening in the US right now.)

Adam Bandt wants to know why Abbott treats those in detention differently than persecuted Christians from Iraq. Could it be that those in detention have broken the law and won’t make good citizens.

Greens call out Abbott

The text of the Sydney Morning Herald story does not include anything from the Green Party, but there is a clip of Green Party leader Adam Bandt criticizing Tony Abbott for what he calls hypocrisy because while perhaps agreeing to take 4,000 refugees now, the government is holding hundreds of Iraqis in detention.  He wonders why the disparity in treatment.

It is pretty obvious to me!   Those in detention are mostly Muslims who broke into Australia illegally—not persecuted Christians running for their lives at the moment.

Here is the caption under the film clip:

PM needs to decide if he’s a humanitarian or a hypocrite: Greens

Granting extra places to refugees fleeing Iraq is a good start, but it would be hypocritical of the government to send refugees already in detention back to Iraq says Adam Bandt.

See all of our coverage of the migrant problem in Australia by clicking here (141 previous posts!).  See especially Australia’s Muslim migrants call for Caliphate.  What does Bandt not see about the difference between Muslims and Christians as prospective new Aussies?

Iraqi refugee sentenced to 26 years to life for murdering wife wants to be executed…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 28, 2014

….so his body can be taken ‘home’ to Iraq.

The convicted murderer weeps at wife’s Muslim funeral when it was still believed she was killed by Islamophobes! http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/28/us/killing-of-iraqi-woman-leaves-immigrant-community-shaken.html?_r=0

 

Sentencing, a week ago today in June was the final step in the lengthy investigation and murder trial that surely cost the taxpayers of California a bundle.  Not only did Kassim Al-Himidi brutally murder his wife, but left a note at the murder scene that first led investigators to think that a hate-crime against Muslim immigrants had occurred.

And, this is what we are paying for in our “humanitarian” refugee resettlement program!

All of our coverage of the case is here. (El Cajon Iraqi hate crime archive, see especially “fishy” hate crime story here on April fools’ day 2012).

From the Los Angeles Times:

An Iraqi immigrant was sentenced Monday to 26 years to life in prison for the 2012 bludgeon slaying of his wife in their El Cajon home.

Kassim Al-Himidi, 50, left a note near the body to mislead investigators into thinking that the fatal beating of his wife, Shaima Alawadi, 32, was an anti-immigrant hate crime, prosecutors said.

Still loudly protesting his innocence, Al-Himidi told Judge William McGrath at the sentencing Monday that he would prefer to be executed so his body could be returned to his native Iraq.

Read it all.

About the photo:  I wonder did the New York Times ever update (apologize!) that story depicting the people of El Cajon as racist and Islamophobic!

UNHCR says US has pledged “open-ended resettlement numbers” for Syrians

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 30, 2014

What the heck does “open-ended” mean?

We have been puzzled in recent weeks about why there is no announcement from the US State Department about the number of Syrians they expect to resettle in the US this fiscal year (the fiscal year ends Sept. 30th).  As regular visitors to RRW  know, the contractors*** want 12,000-15,000 this year.

As of May 31st we have resettled 42 Syrians as “refugees.”   And, there isn’t much squawking coming from the contractors.  Do they know something we don’t know?

Here is the news release from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees:

Geneva, 27 June 2014 – New offers of resettlement or humanitarian admissions for Syrian refugees were today pledged by Belgium, Ireland, Switzerland and Uruguay. In all, 565 new places were announced during a high-level meeting of 42 countries, taking the total number of offers received since mid-2013 to more than 34,700 places. In addition, the United States has pledged open-ended resettlement numbers.

The majority of offers to date come from European states, with Germany having offered over half the global total. [Invasion of Europe!---ed].   In all 22 countries have offered places for Syrian refugees so far.

High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres said: “I hope this momentum continues over the coming months. Resettlement and other humanitarian admission programmes are critical and can be life-saving for the victims of the conflict in Syria.

Now, go to the US Refugee Admission numbers for this year (so far, as of May 31).

Obama set the ceiling for admissions from the Near East/South Asia at 33,000 for the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30th.  (See Presidential Determination for FY2014.)

We have taken 11,660 Iraqis so far.   6,005 came from Bhutan, and smaller numbers from other countries in the region bringing the total to 20,278.  There are also 2,000 spaces labeled as ‘unallocated reserve.’   It is those 2,000 spaces that most observers believe will be available to Syrians.

There is no such thing as open-ended resettlement, EXCEPT as this President has shown us time and again, he can make law since most members of the Legislative branch of government have abrogated their duty under the Constitution and are letting him get away with it!

Will the announcement on Syrians arriving in large numbers during the remaining 3 months of the fiscal year be the next stunner out of the lawless Obama Administration?

UN and media lackeys hype numbers for World Refugee Day

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 21, 2014

Ho hum!  I guess we can’t expect honesty for their big propaganda day.

Several people reported this headline to me:   For First Time Since WWII There Are More Than 50 Million Refugees.   

My first thought was directed at the UN—“liar, liar, pants on fire!”—but maybe I should be directing my annoyance at the AP reporters and the headline writer because I wondered how that 50 million “refugees” jives with the Pew study (using UN numbers) that says the number of refugees is down to between 10 and 12 million from a peak in the early 90s of 18 million (see graph below right)

Iraqis on the move (again) this week. The US takes 20,000 Iraqis a year. Iraqis make up the largest ethnic group we are resettling right now. http://www.newser.com/article/3296c869af544477b0c782c8dd35b352/ap-photos-a-look-at-daily-lives-of-refugees-as-global-count-surges.html

Here is the story, hat tip Judy, that I wasn’t going to waste my time on, but since it is everywhere, I will (waste my time) and post it:

TAZA KHORMATO, Iraq (AP) — In a battered car loaded with blankets and clothes, Hassan Abbas and his mother left a dusty town in northern Iraq, fleeing this week’s violence and joining what the United Nations says is the largest worldwide population of displaced people since World War II.

The U.N. refugee agency’s latest annual report, released Friday, found more than 50 million people worldwide were displaced at the end of last year, reflecting an ever-expanding web of international conflicts.

Last year’s increase in displaced people was the largest in at least two decades, driven mainly by the civil war in Syria, which has claimed an estimated 160,000 lives and forced 9 million people to flee their homes. Now Iraq is adding to that tide.

Notice the word “displaced”—that does not mean they are by definition all “refugees.”  Twenty paragraphs into the story we learn this:

Of 51.2 million displaced people worldwide last year, 16.7 million were refugees outside their countries’ borders. More than half of the refugees under UNHCR’s care — 6.3 million — had been in exile for more than five years, the agency said.

That 16.7 million is likely inflated as well, but even so it is still LESS than the peak in the early 1990’s of 18 million.

LOL!  This is what I would have picked out of the story for my headline!

On World Refugee Day: Violence in Muslim countries producing most of world’s refugees.

Just a few paragraphs from the end of the AP story:

By country, the biggest refugee populations were Afghan, Syrian and Somali, the report said.  [and now Iraqis again, of course---ed]

Al-Hijra?

You know stories like this one from AP are used as propaganda (often effectively with naive Americans and dumb politicians) to soften them up.  But, besides the usual do-gooder verbiage about “vulnerable” people, “humanitarian” gestures, and “welcoming” communities would someone please tell me….

What good does it do America to bring a relative handful here?   And, why do we want to bring any of their Islam-driven violence and squabbles to America anyway?

Here we go again! Muslim jihadists creating more refugees in Iraq

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 14, 2014

It is all over the news, so we don’t need to say much, except (ho hum!) here we go again!

 

This is just what needs to happen, set up camps for those displaced and the UN can protect them from attack right there and move them home later.

From NBC News:

The new wave of violence in western Iraq has created a “toxic brew” of hardship that has ballooned the country’s crippling refugee crisis by more than 50 percent in just a few days, international aid groups said Thursday.

Just this week, an estimated half-million people have fled the city of Mosul, which was overrun by suspected militants of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, also called ISIL or ISIS, international aid workers told NBC News. Most, about 300,000, are pitching up in Erbil province in the north, according to the office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, with the rest flowing elsewhere inside Mosul’s Nineveh province.

Readers, at this moment, Iraqis make up the largest segment of the refugee flow to America (and most are not Christians!).  We are taking about 20,000 a year.  So far this fiscal year (2014) we have taken 11,660.  With millions on the move and apparently more to come, and as Muslims continue their squabbles, what do we think we are accomplishing by continuing the flow of needy Muslims into your cities and towns?

Readers, this is our 618th post about Iraqi refugees—-getting pretty sick of them!

Refugee dilemma: Where to get better government services—Minnesota or North Dakota?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 3, 2014

Amazing!   Not that “refugees” are scouting which states have more “robust” social services for them, but that there is a news article like this one that basically makes it sound perfectly normal to do so.   Although, one definite plus for the article is that the reporter refers to Lutheran Social Services as having been “contracted” to resettle refugees.  Glad to see the mainstream media noting that these church groups are federal contractors!  That is a step in the right direction and not something we would have seen mentioned five years ago!

Fargo (ND)-Moorhead (MN) often linked as if they were one city. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fargo%E2%80%93Moorhead

And, would someone  on the Open Borders side of this debate please explain what “vibrant diversity” is  and how it benefits American citizens besides some mumbo jumbo about how we can appreciate the world better by having aliens living next door.

From Fergus Falls Journal:

MOORHEAD, Minn. — Husni Hassan and his family left the unrest of Iraq and moved to Texas two years ago. There, he found peace, but something was missing.

“It was very hard to find somebody from your culture who speaks your language,” said the 33-year-old from the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

Hassan wanted his young children to grow up around other Kurdish people and enjoy the benefits of a close-knit community. So not long ago, when he learned of the roughly 1,100 Kurds living in Moorhead, he and his family resettled here and became part of the city’s small collection of refugees.  [O.K.so what about the America community they have inserted themselves into---are Americans allowed to have close-knit American communities?---ed]

Like Hassan, many of the refugees in Moorhead lived somewhere else in the U.S. before migrating here. A low number come straight to Moorhead, often to be close to relatives or friends.

In the past few years, just 32 newly arrived refugees, all from Iraq, have landed in Moorhead. Compare that with Fargo, where close to 1,000 have settled during the same time, according to data from Lutheran Social Services, a nonprofit group contracted by the government to aid refugees.

One explanation for the drastic difference is that LSS can provide five years of services to refugees in Fargo. But in Moorhead, those services end after 90 days.   [I don't know what this five years is in reference to---ed]

[***Update*** A reader asked me a very logical question---if, as we are repeatedly told, refugees are self-sufficient in an incredibly short time, why do they need "services" for five years?  Good question!---ed]

“Then they’re kind of on their own,” said Darci Ashe, an LSS spokeswoman.

In Moorhead and Fargo, refugees are eligible for federal cash assistance for eight months after they arrive in the U.S. Though those payments vary – and are somewhat higher for a single person in North Dakota – Minnesota generally has more robust benefit programs.

But services, such as a caseworker to help a refugee who doesn’t speak English make a doctor’s appointment or enroll a child in school, are available longer in Fargo than Moorhead because of basic differences in how the two states’ systems of helping refugees are designed.

This article is well-worth reading.  It discusses Wilson-Fish as ND is a W-F state (see our FAQ on W-F here just a few days ago) and it tells us that the extent of medical care/medicaid for refugees is a deciding factor when refugees scout out new places to migrate.

Despite the five years of services LSS can offer refugees in Fargo, Newzad Brifki, a leader in the Kurdish community, said he believes that in the long run, Minnesota provides refugees with more support than North Dakota.

No doubt Brifki would like more refugees to resettle in Moorhead and he must be wishing his new organization (Kurdish Community of America) could get the contract to bring them there!

Brifki said he thinks Moorhead would gain much by having more refugees.

“I know Fargo is benefiting a lot from these newcomers,” he said.

“Having a diverse city is just – it’s vibrant.”

By the way, both North Dakota  (hatchet-man and machete-man in the same month!) and Minnesota have had their share of diverse immigrant crime cases—but I guess he doesn’t mean that sort of diversity!

Kentucky, a Wilson-Fish state, has had its share of negative refugee news

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 31, 2014

Update June 1:  More negative news—refugee charged with ripping off resettlement contractor and a whole lot more, here.

Kentucky isn’t the largest of the refugee resettlement states but falls within the top 20 for the number of refugees it receives.  In a recent 5 year period—2006-2011—Kentucky resettled 7,883 refugees making it the 17th largest resettlement state, of course nowhere near the top two:  California (46,218) and Texas (34,069) for the same time period.

From now to eternity, the poster boys for refugee resettlement in Kentucky will be convicted Iraqi refugee terrorists!

Kentucky (well, not the state itself, but the non-profits) resettled 1,368 refugees in 2011 which moved them to 16th place for that year.  We know this from the Office of Refugee Resettlement’s Annual Report to Congress for 2011.  The ORR is two years behind in supplying Congress with legally required reports for 2012 and 2013 which of course makes it hard for Congress (they don’t seem to care) and for you to see what is going on in your state.

In 2012, Kentucky got 1,452 refugees.  Go here to see where they came from.

Kentucky is a Wilson-Fish state. We told you about that here in a FAQ on W-F.

As a Wilson-Fish state, the federal government (the US State Department and the Office of Refugee Resettlement in HHS) has chosen, in this case, Catholic Charities to administer the program for the state.

That means that state resources are being used to care for refugees, to educate the kids, to provide housing and healthcare, etc. with NO OVERSIGHT or no control from elected officials in Kentucky!

Catholic Charities is the Kentucky Office for Refugees.   According to a recent Form 990 (2011, most recent available at Guidestar) the ‘Kentucky’ office received $13.1 million in revenue that year and $11.3 million came from you, the taxpayer, in the form of Government grants.  About 86% of their funding comes from taxpayer dollars.

To learn more than you ever wanted to know about Kentucky’s program go here (Kentucky Wilson-Fish Policy and Procedures Manual).

But, Catholic Charities isn’t alone in bringing refugees to Kentucky, according to the ‘Manual,’ five of nine major refugee contractors operate in Kentucky.  They like to call themselves “Voluntary Agencies,”  VOLAGs for short.  They are anything but!  Most of them receive as much as 90+ % of their funding from government sources, they are paid by the head to resettle refugees and thus have no incentive to slow the flow to cities and towns they have deemed “preferred.”

In Kentucky right now the “preferred resettlement sites” are Louisville, Lexington and Owensboro.   Bowling Green used to be “preferred” but has had too many problems with refugee overload, crime and even terrorism so the feds have likely stopped highlighting it as a fabulous place to send refugees at the moment (other than family reunification cases that is).

The nine contractors that monopolize the program, along with their hundreds of subcontractors, have America carved up and turf wars are not uncommon! 

But, I had to laugh when I saw the list of contractors operating in Kentucky, heck!  five of the nine are there and I bet competing and squabbling among themselves.    The five helping supply Kentucky industries with cheap labor (chicken plants perhaps?) are:  Church World Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (helping build Kentucky’s Muslim population?), the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (they all bring Muslims, not just HIAS!).

Before we get too far into the weeds of this thing, let me tell you about some news involving Kentucky’s claim to fame in the refugee resettlement world.

This is so ironic!  Our first mention of Kentucky here at RRW was in 2007 when then Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration, Ellen Sauerbrey (Bush appointment) went to Louisville and said we need to bring refugees to America to keep them from becoming terrorists!  I think you know where this is going!

Then in 2008, we had the hot news from Bowling Green that a Bosnian refugee teen was shot in the head by a homeowner who was awakened by the kid breaking in.  Thankfully, the homeowner was not prosecuted having every right to protect himself and his property.

In 2009 we learned from a reader who actually went to meet with the Burmese refugees of Bowling Green in their slum apartments about the deplorable conditions in which the International Center there (a subcontractor of USCRI) had placed scores of Burmese families.  We wrote many posts on the controversy at the time and those can be found by going to our Bowling Green archive.  See also ‘Friends of Refugees’ on the International Center’s mismanagement of refugees there.

The most stunning refugee news to hit Kentucky and the Nation in 2011 was the arrest of two Iraqi refugees on terrorism charges.  They have since been found guilty and are in prison.  Think about it, US taxpayers paid an enormous sum to bring them here and now we get to care for them for life behind bars.  We wrote extensively on the news as it developed, click here to see all of our mentions of the KY Iraqi refugee terrorists.

So what do you think Ellen Sauerbrey would say now when it appears we did bring Iraqi refugees to America and they still wanted to be terrorists!

Senator Rand Paul

Initially we were surprised and grateful that Senator Rand Paul took an interest in the refugee program that had brought those Iraqis to his home town of Bowling Green.  The Senator spoke up several times demanding to know why we were bringing Iraqis and other refugees to America.  Here (in June of last year) he was roundly criticized for saying (correctly!):  ‘we bring’em in and sign them up for welfare.

In the nearly seven years we have written about refugees, he is one of only a handful of Senators or Members of Congress to question the program, but unfortunately we haven’t seen much from him on the subject lately.   Gee, I wonder why?

Congolese human trafficker?

And, as we run out of steam on Kentucky, we can’t forget the news last month about accusations that a Congolese refugee could be charged in a human-trafficking case.  Sifa Ndusha’s alleged victim has filed a lawsuit claiming that she was trafficked by Ndusaha.  This is happening in Lexington (a preferred community!).  Read all about it here.

A recommendation to readers in Kentucky and every other state:

If you are troubled by what you see with this federal program, a program we obviously believe has gone completely off track by becoming a money-making scheme for the religious right on the backs of US taxpayers when we have our own poor people in need of “services” and is bringing large numbers of culturally incompatible people to targeted cities, please take the initiative and find out what is going on in your city or in your state.

And, by he way, when you begin following the activities of your local resettlement contractors, they aren’t just using your money for the “refugees,” they also use it for “advocacy” for political issues locally and nationally.  They are all advocating for the Obama amnesty plan.  So do your sleuthing and then…..

….. PUBLISH YOUR FINDINGS so that others may learn from you because the mainstream media is either too lazy or in the tank for the program.   Take some lessons from the political Left and begin agitating your elected officials starting on the city and state level to do something about it.  Some aspects of this program are, we suspect, being administered illegally, so be sure to let your local elected officials know that and perhaps you will find a few of them with some guts willing to fight to protect Americans first.   You might even get really lucky and find some pro bono lawyer willing to take them on.

Don’t let the contractors trap you in their humanitarian do-gooder mumbo jumbo pitch either—remember this is a business they are in and the only difference is that their product is moving immigrants around and finding them “services” with money from you!  They are also busy turning red states blue.

Let your representatives in Washington know too what you have learned, but don’t hold your breath that your solution rests in DC.   We have visited Congressional aids there who tell us they are too scared to take this one on.  Why?  Fear of being called racists?  Fear of the lobbying power of entities like the Catholic and Lutheran Churches?  Fear of the loss of campaign donations from big corporations looking for cheap legal labor? Maybe all three?

Who’s new seven months into fiscal year 2014; Iraqis lead the pack

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 13, 2014

Every month the Refugee Processing Center reports on the number of refugees admitted to the US in the previous months of a given fiscal year.  Go here for the stats as of April 30th, 2014 (the fiscal year 2014 began October 1, 2013).

That testimony you are preparing for fiscal year 2015 is for refugees who will begin arriving this October first.

Below are the refugees numbering over 1,000 in this fiscal year (so far).   The total number over the previous seven months is 37,595, hereThe contractors and the Obama State Dept. are shooting for 70,000 by September 30th.

Iraq:  10,299

Burma:  8,207

Bhutan (really Nepal):  5,133

Somalia:  4,508  (this number puts us on target for a banner year for Somalis)

Cuba:  2,447 (yes, we are still bringing in Cubans)

Iran:  1,582

Dem. Rep. Congo:  1,558

Note to Wyoming:  You will not just be getting Congolese refugees, but most likely will be taking a lot of Iraqis, Burmese, Bhutanese and Somalis—the ones who are overloaded (jobless and receiving social services) in other “welcoming” states.
