Georgia joins other states where immigrants are getting all the jobs

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 16, 2014

The Center for Immigration Studies has had an on-going project of reporting which states have a high percentage of jobs going to immigrants while the native-born Americans working has declined.

Georgia Governor Deal asked for a reduction in the number of refugees going to the overloaded state. But, GA is still in the top ten receiving states. http://newsmanager.atlantaregional.com/anmviewer.asp?a=56685&z=21

We previously reported on their statistics from Tennessee, Florida and North Carolina.  Now it’s Georgia’s turn.  Here at CIS:

The Gang of Eight immigration bill (S.744) passed by the Senate last June would have roughly doubled the number of new foreign workers allowed into the country, as well as legalized illegal immigrants, partly on the grounds that there is a labor shortage. Many business groups and politicians in Georgia supported the legislation. However, an analysis of government data shows that, since 2000, all of the net increase in the number of working-age (16 to 65) people holding a job in Georgia has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal). This is the case even though the native-born accounted for 54 percent of growth in the state’s total working-age population. Perhaps worst of all, the labor force participation rate of Georgia’s natives shows no improvement through the first part of this year despite the economic recovery.

Among the findings:

~The total number of working-age (16 to 65) immigrants (legal and illegal) holding a job in Georgia increased by 400,000 from the first quarter of 2000 to the first quarter of 2014, while the number of working-age natives with a job declined by 71,000 over the same time frame.

~The fact that all the long-term net gain in employment among the working-age went to immigrants is striking because natives accounted for 54 percent of the increase in the total size of the state’s working-age population.

More here…..

Georgia is in the top ten refugee resettlement states for the 11 months of fiscal year 2014 (which ends on Sept. 30th).

And, keep in mind, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal asked the US State Department to slow the flow to his state.

Compared to illegal immigration the numbers are small, but remember refugees have employment services (federal resettlement contractors) assisting them in finding work.  Check out your state by clicking here.

Texas:  6,398

California:  5,666

New York:  3,733

Michigan:  3,677

Florida:  3,227

Ohio:  2,700

Arizona:  2,675

Georgia:  2,502

Pennsylvania:  2,497

Washington:  2,323

Not far behind are:  Illinois, North Carolina, and Minnesota

Austin, MN: Meatpackers changing the demographics of American towns

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 15, 2014

There is nothing earth-shattering in this article from MPR News, but it’s just further evidence of the role the meatpacking industry is playing in changing towns in America’s heartland with its avaricious desire for cheap labor—refugee labor!  (Remember Senator Sessions called the meatpackers out here last year as a driving force behind amnesty).

We have been following this topic for going on seven years first brought to our attention by the turmoil created by Somali workers demanding workplace accommodation for their ‘religious’ requirements.  We have an entire category entitled, Greeley/Swift/Somali controversy, where we archived posts on the topic.

But, you know what is really funny (sort of) is that the meatpackers apparently got sick of the Somali workers in some places and must have asked the US State Department (and their contractors***) for some more docile workers like these Burmese Karen Christians or the mostly Hindu Bhutanese refugees we have been bringing in ever since Bush “welcomed” them in 2007.

The refugees are basically cheap, legal, captive laborers which you subsidize through the myriad social services they receive (see our fact sheet for the list of welfare programs open to refugees).

 

The largest employer in Austin, MN, Hormel and Quality Pork. Photo from a NYT article in 2008 about a mystery illness there. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/05/health/05pork.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

 

From MPR News (hat tip: Deb):

St. Paul is home to the largest Karen population in the country. But in recent years, Austin has attracted hundreds of the Karen and Karenni people.

Austin, a meatpacking town that has seen big demographic changes in the last few decades, started attracting workers from Mexico and Latin America in the early 1990s, followed by a wave of African immigrants. [The meatpackers used illegal labor from south of the border until the feds clamped down and then they discovered refugee labor thanks to Bill Clinton---ed]

The city’s growing Karen population is the first influx of minorities that has not been Latino or African, and the change has come fast.

According to the city’s Welcome Center, the number of Karen and Karenni residents in Austin nearly tripled to 1,224 this year, up from 463 in 2012. Driven out of their long-adopted home of Myanmar to camps in Thailand, the members of the two groups are flowing to the United States as refugees.

That means they can work legally, and some have replaced other immigrants at workplaces like Austin’s Hormel and Quality Pork processing plants, Austin schools superintendent David Krenz said.

Of course this massive plant in Austin would not have had Somali workers in the first place!  (Pork of course!).

The Minnesota resettlement agencies affiliated with the federal government are listed here.  They are subcontractors of the big Volags below.  BTW, they call themselves Voluntary Agencies (Volags), but that is an obvious misnomer as most are nearly completely funded by tax dollars.

***The federal migrant resettlement contractors which we have followed for years (Grant recipient big dogs (devouring federal cash) Baptist Child and Family Services and Southwest Key Programs  are new on the scene in recent years and mostly due to UACs.):

How many Iraqi refugees came to America since 9/11? How are they doing?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 13, 2014

In our earlier post this morning, we reported that the US State Department is going to begin bringing in Syrians (at the UN’s direction) on par with what we have done for Iraqis.  That reminded me that I wanted to pull together the Iraqi resettlement data.

We are on our way, as this fiscal year ends in a few weeks, to 115,000 Iraqis admitted to the US since 9/11.  Approximately 62% are Muslims (71,300).  How do we know?

Recently a reader sent me some numbers for Iraqi refugees from a data base kept by the US State Department that only select people have access to.  It was the data base of religions refugees bring to America.  Our reader said that of 111,854 Iraqis admitted since 2003, 42,137 are Christians. (38%).   I don’t have access to the religion data, but I did want to check the total numbers for myself.

I don’t come up with 111,854 (I get 111,731, but it’s close and we could easily reach 115,000 by the end of the fiscal year).  This information below comes from data tables at the end of Annual Reports to Congress, here.

Iraqi refugees who were ultimately convicted on terrorism charges were arrested in KY and caused a dip in the numbers for 2011.

From 1983-2002:  we resettled 41,549 Iraqis

From fiscal year 2003 to August 31, 2014:

2003:  294

2004:  65

2005:  186

2006:  189

2007:  1,605

2008:  13,775 (this was a George Bush year)

2009:  18,709

2010:  18,016

2011:  9,388  (Assume this dip is because of the Iraqi terrorists arrested in KY which resulted in a federal freak-out and a re-do on the security screening of Iraqis).

2012:  12,233

2013:  19,500

2014 (11 months of the fiscal year): 17,771

Bottom line is that we are approaching 115,000 Iraqis admitted to the US in the last 12 years (the State Dept. and contractors will make a big push this month to hit their targets and so I am guessing they will reach 115,000).

How are they doing? 

See the special section on Iraqi refugees in the 2012 ORR Annual Report to Congress (the most recent data available) beginning on page 110.

Not so hot!

~The overall US unemployment rate that year was 7.6%, the Iraqi unemployment rate was 22.6% (but up from 40% or so in some previous years).

~Of those not looking for work, 33.6% had poor health or disabilities.

~The average hourly wage for Iraqis who were working was $9.79 per hour.

~ORR says that the goal is self-sufficiency in 3 months, but only 21% got their first job in 6 months and welfare continued.

~60% were on Medicaid or Refugee Medical Assistance.

~82% were receiving food stamps.

~58% were receiving some sort of cash assistance.

~36% were getting SSI (Supplemental Security Income).

The report tries to put a happy face on it, but the numbers are abysmal!

Sure looks like we are importing poverty and you can expect the Syrians to be in the same situation when they begin arriving at rates comparable to the Iraqis—from 10,000-20,000 a year!

For ambitious readers, our Iraqi refugee category has 628 previous posts in it.

Update:  About the photo.  The photo we placed in this post this morning disappeared. This is not the first time, that has happened with the official photo of this pair.  Let’s see what happens with this one.

Who is working in Tennessee?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 10, 2014

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

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

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

Here is how Part I opens:

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

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

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

Who are legal immigrants in Tennessee?

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

More….

Part II is here:

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

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

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

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

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

Keep reading…. We come for the jobs!

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

Riots in Sweden (again) blamed on unemployment in immigrant enclaves

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 8, 2014

Update September 9th:  Don’t miss this Somali protest in Sweden where they are demanding their “rights.”

LOL!  “Some sort of social unrest…a statement against society,” says a police officer in Stockholm. (Hint: it is called Islamic terrorism!)

Our ‘canary in a coal mine,’ Sweden, is once again experiencing assorted riots where youths burn cars to make a political statement.  “Youths” in the politically-correct land of “welcome” usually means Muslim immigrants. See our extensive archive on Sweden which has literally opened its doors to the Middle East and Africa.  And, see our ‘invasion of Europe’ series by clicking here.

We show our gratitude by wrecking your country! Photo (2013 riots) and story about the cost of mass immigration: http://gatesofvienna.net/2014/05/sweden-and-the-cost-of-mass-immigration/

From Reuters (emphasis mine):

(Reuters) – At least 20 cars were set on fire overnight in a poor immigrant suburb of Stockholm, police said on Saturday, days before an election in which joblessness and Sweden’s open door asylum policy are major issues.

Sweden suffered its worst riots in years in May 2013, when youths burnt hundreds of cars and battled police in the capital’s poor suburbs for a week.

Gert Rosvall, a Stockholm police station officer, said vehicles had been torched in seven or eight places in Norsborg. Witnesses reported seeing a group of 20 to 50 people in the area at the time of the fires but no one had been arrested.

“This is about some sort of social unrest,” Rosvall said. “It is some kind of statement against society, but exactly what that statement is, we don’t know.”

In August, cars were also torched in the suburb of Rinkeby, which has Stockholm’s highest unemployment level.

Maybe it has something to do with the upcoming elections?

“Whether there is any connection to that, or the fact that elections are coming up, we don’t know,” Rosvall said.

Opinion polls suggest anti-immigration Sweden Democrats will take about 10 percent of votes in the Sept. 14 election, which would be their best ever result, as a growing number of voters question the cost of the country’s open door asylum policy.

Centre right Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, whose government alliance is facing defeat, put immigration at the top at the political agenda in an August speech.

While pointing to the importance of helping people fleeing from conflicts such as the one in Syria, he said the cost of receiving asylum seekers would leave little room for more spending to boost jobs and schools.

No kidding!

By the way, my bet is on Sweden to reach a “tipping point” first in Europe—tipping over to a Muslim-dominated society.  Some are betting on France or the UK, but I think the French and the Brits may have a stronger will to live.  What do you think?

Is yours a “welcoming” state for refugees? The answer may depend on your Hepatitis and HIV treatment availability

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 6, 2014

That is one of the interesting facts we are learning while reading through ORR’s Key Indicators for Fiscal Year 2015.  We have been telling you about it (see here and here).

The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) has recently been compiling statistics on such things as employment opportunities and whether your state has generous social service benefits and healthcare to help refugees get the very best care they can get.

I found the ‘Access to Health Care’ on page 18 of the Statistical Abstract enlightening.

By the way, if yours is one of 26 states expanding Medicaid, yours will be a more “welcoming” location than the 19 (stingy) states which have not.

Access to Health Care

Access to health care and health insurance is an important consideration in refugee placement and resettlement decisions. Depending on their circumstances, refugees may be eligible for different types of health insurance, including Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program, Refugee Medical Assistance (RMA), employer-based plans, and private insurance available through the Health Insurance Marketplace. However, many refugees are uninsured. In fact, one third of refugees from ORR’s Annual Survey in 2011 lacked medical of any kind throughout the preceding year. In addition, the availability of “safety net” health services varies by state.

Initial placement decisions can have a long-term impact on refugees’ health outcomes;

For example:

* Treatment for chronic Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C can last up to one year. People with these conditions who are resettled in a state where RMA is the only health insurance option will be less likely to start or complete treatment.

* Refugees with HIV will require specialized care; the availability of long-term health
insurance and the robustness of local Ryan White programs (especially, waiting periods to
access anti-HIV medications) should be considered when making placement decisions
regarding people with HIV.

You really should check out the report, you will learn a lot about how generous (or not) your state is and how well refugees are doing finding jobs and keeping them.

And, how is your TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families)?  There is a very detailed state-by-state list of how much refugees get and what the rules are in your state.

Oh, and we learned one more thing!  ORR is using your tax dollars for “gaining socio-political support for the refugee program.”

For new readers, we have an extensive ‘health issues’ category, click here.  You may be surprised to learn that in addition to HIV and Hepatitis, we take refugees with TB, venereal diseases and parasites as well.

Office of Refugee Resettlement Key indicators for FY 2015 available

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 3, 2014

Or, in layman’s terms, does your town or city have the amenities required (social service goodies, jobs, healthcare, etc.) to become a refugee resettlement site?

A couple of years ago the US State Department (Population Refugees and Migration) and the Office of Refugee Resettlement in HHS decided they better have a more organized way of determining if your town or city has what it takes to “welcome” refugees (as opposed to a previous method that sure looked like throwing darts at a US map!).

For awhile they just kept overloading the established resettlement cities (and they still do), but now they are scouting for fresh territory as well!

Below is what they say at ORR (you might want to contact the lead person listed below and ask to be a ‘stakeholder‘) about their “Coordinated Placement” plan.

Here is what we said about Key Indicators for 2014.  We have not yet even opened this 2015 report but remember in a few weeks Obama will announce his plans for how many refugees we will bring to America in 2015 (which begins October 1 of this year). Hat tip: Joanne.

By the way, they talk big about “capacity” but when a community screams that they are over capacity, they close their ears!

To facilitate the FY 2015 Refugee consolidated placement planning, ORR provides the attached “Statistical Abstract for Refugee Resettlement Stakeholders” document. This document contains critical information on the domestic refugee landscape for resettlement stakeholders to consider when making placement decisions, including a compilation of resources historically available to states for determination of the capacity of communities to serve the diverse needs of refugees.

This document is an additional key mechanism for ORR to share data and other critical information with PRM and resettlement stakeholders nationwide. The overall goal is to more effectively meet the needs of refugees while promoting their self-sufficiency and successful integration in the United States after their arrival.

North Carolina: Immigrants getting all the jobs!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 2, 2014

Update September 6th:  Black unemployment at over 11%, here.

Recently we told you about the busy beaver federal refugee contractors who are working hard to bring MORE cheap immigrant labor to North Carolina while native North Carolinians are going without work at an unprecedented rate.

See two recent posts here and here about North Carolina.

Then see the proof from the Center for Immigration Studies which analyzed the statistics to confirm what we suspected.

Previously CIS reported on similar numbers for the states of Florida and Tennessee.

Natives accounted for most of the growth in population, but all employment growth went to immigrants

The Gang of Eight immigration bill (S.744) passed by the Senate last June would have roughly doubled the number of new foreign workers allowed into the country, as well as legalized illegal immigrants already here. North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagen (D) voted for it. An analysis of government data by the Center for Immigration Studies shows that, since 2000, all of the net increase in the number of working-age (16 to 65) people holding a job in North Carolina has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal). This is the case even though the native-born accounted for 61 percent of growth in the state’s total working-age population.

Read it all, it is shocking!

I wonder if the same thing holds for Pennsylvania?

Refugees get jobs as dealers in PA casinos

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 2, 2014

Jobs Americans won’t do?

Just as Atlantic City, NJ casinos are tanking with thousands expected to be unemployed, across the river in Pennsylvania refugees are getting jobs paying $22 to $28 an hour.  I know that area of Southern NJ and this is going to have a far reaching impact on the local economy.  Some of those employees might want to head to Pennsylvania.  But….

Extended family of Bhutanese refugees see first snow in Pennsylvania! PA is the top resettlement state for Bhutanese followed by Texas, NY, and Georgia. http://www.cdc.gov/immigrantrefugeehealth/profiles/bhutanese/population-movements/

From AP at Go Erie:

The gambling industry in western Pennsylvania is betting on refugee immigrants. And casinos say it’s paying off.

At Presque Isle Downs & Casino, 40 percent of the men and women in the pits flipping cards and counting chips got their initial training in a room barely larger than a closet in the rear of a former Methodist church owned by Multicultural Community Resource Center, an Erie nonprofit that helps resettled refugees find jobs, housing and schools.

[....]

Nearly 200 of the 1,800 workers at Rivers Casino on Pittsburgh’s North Shore, including those in the finance department and blackjack dealers, arrived as documented immigrants in the State Department’s refugee resettlement program. That’s twice the rate of foreign-born employment for the rest of Allegheny County, and it’s growing as charities help the state-regulated gambling parlor place qualified, law-abiding immigrants in service jobs that pay $22 to $28 an hour, depending on tips.

Now check this out!

That last line above (in red) has been edited because another version of the same article (this one at the Washington Times) says this:

Nearly 200 of the 1,800 workers at Rivers Casino on Pittsburgh’s North Shore, from the finance department to blackjack dealers, arrived as documented immigrants in the State Department’s refugee resettlement program. That’s twice the rate of foreign-born employment for the rest of Allegheny County, and it’s growing as charities - including the Catholic Diocese, Jewish Family and Children’s Services and the Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council - help the state-regulated gambling parlor place qualified, law-abiding immigrants in service jobs that pay $22 to $28 an hour, depending on tips.

So why did Go Erie take out the names of the contractors resettling refugees in the area?

For more information, see our July post herePittsburgh at “tipping point!”  For more on how we came to take 70,000 plus Bhutanese refugees in the last few years, type ‘Bhutanese Sauerbrey’ into our search window.

Obama considering allowing 800,000 more immigrant workers into the US to appease big business

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 22, 2014

You know who should be really worried about this (in addition to American workers) is anyone who is trying to help real legal refugees find work because this plan may include employers of low-skill labor as well if the likes of Tamar Jacoby get their way.

Refugee activists won’t be concerned of course because it’s more about open borders for the refugee contractors than it is about humanitarian concern for needy refugees (or needy Americans).

Obama: Go ahead and joke about golfing all you want, but I am getting it done!

Reports run as high as 50% for the unemployment rate among legal refugees from some ethnic groups.  (I can hear the howls from refugee contractors when I say it’s that high, but they don’t really know themselves because they keep phoney records on employment.)

The contractors must report to the feds the employment status of their refugees, but here is what they do—they get the refugee some piddling job that might only last a few months just so they can say their refugees are employed and it doesn’t matter if the refugee is fired or quits after that reporting date.   And besides, after a few months, refugees move on to other towns and cities and no one tracks what they are doing!

From Breitbart:

After meeting with a “bevy” of big-business groups, President Barack Obama is reportedly considering granting them up to 800,000 additional guest-worker visas via executive actions.

According to the Associated Press, “one of the more popular requests among business and family groups is a change in the way green cards are counted,” which would “essentially free up some 800,000 additional visas the first year.” In addition, “other requests have included removing the requirement that some spouses of U.S. citizens return to their native country for at least three years before they can apply for U.S. residency, as well as extending work permits to the spouses of all temporary H1-B skilled workers.” The Obama administration is also considering granting work permits for low-skilled industries as well.

The Obama administration “has already increased the number of guest-worker permits by possibly 100,000 when it allowed the spouses of high-tech guest-workers who are applying for permanent residency to obtain permits.”

Numerous companies – like Microsoft and Cisco – have massively laid off American workers while pushing the Obama administration for more guest-worker visas at a time when scholars and studies from organizations on the left, right, and center have debunked the notion that there is a shortage of American high-tech workers. The Obama administration reportedly wants to appease big-business interests so they give him air cover for his potential executive amnesty, which may enable millions of illegal immigrants to get work permits in addition to temporary amnesty.

[....]

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) accused the Obama administration of “actively working against the interests of the American worker.”

Not only will the “legal” immigrants be working, but they will be voting because anyone with a driver’s license can vote in most states.

The next time you hear someone say they disapprove of illegal immigration, but LEGAL immigration is o.k. pop them in the nose (gently of course).  Our problem is numbers now whether they are legal or illegal!
