Baptist contractor for illegal aliens gives Baptists generally a bad name

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 25, 2014

Lobbies to get a bigger piece of the action.

I suppose you could say that the new leading “Christian” charity/federal contractor hired by ORR to care for the “chiiildruuun” isn’t really made up of  Baptists at all, they are just pretending to be so they can wear that ‘do-gooder’  white hat.

If I were of the Baptist faith, I’d be distancing myself from this bunch pretty quick.

Today the Daily Caller revealed that Baptist Child and Family Services (BCFS) is lobbying for its taxpayer-supplied moolah and may not have reported that fact properly on it’s tax returns.

The other contractors*** lobby as well, but they skirt along the edges of the law by doing grassroots lobbying and hiring Washington “representatives” which is legal I suppose, but ethically stinks.   They all have developed networks of activists who will respond to action alerts by calling or otherwise contacting their elected Washington Representatives and testifying in Congress when appealing for more money and more refugees.

In fact, that (organize grassroots) is all those Tea Party groups that the IRS has cheated were asking for the right to do—but there is one big difference!   Unlike these contractors masquerading as Christian charities (and one Jewish charity) that receive almost their entire budgets from the US Treasury, the Tea Party groups receive no funding from the taxpayer.

That is what is so maddening!  The “humanitarian” hustlers are using your money to lobby for more of your money!  There ought to be a law!

BCFS apparently doesn’t have any grassroots, so they hire lobbying firms to get their (big) piece of the pie.

From the Daily Caller:

A Texas-based organization that has been awarded hundreds of millions of dollars in federal contracts by the Obama administration to house illegal immigrant children not only lobbied the federal government, but also failed to properly disclose the activity.

After The Daily Caller inquired about its lobbying disclosures, BCFS, a San Antonio-based nonprofit, now says it may correct its tax forms to properly disclose its lobbying expenditures.

The Obama administration, through the Department of Health and Human Services, has tapped BCFS, formerly known as Baptist Child & Family Services, to provide security and other services to unaccompanied children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, and Ft. Sill army base near Lawton, Okla.

BCFS has become the largest provider of such services for the child immigrants, who are part of a massive influx of mostly Central Americans that has put the Obama administration on its heels…

[....]

HHS has given BCFS $280 million in federal contracts for its services so far this year. Nearly all of that — $270 million — has been given for services for unaccompanied children. HHS has given BCFS $458 million in total, according to the Tracking Accountability in Government Grants System.

According to the Senate lobbying database, BCFS is the only organization that provides residential services directly for unaccompanied children that has spent money on lobbying.

Since 2006, BCFS has spent $210,000, according to a database maintained by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Read it all, there is more and lots of links to follow.

ORR: 30,340 ‘unaccompanied minors’ already placed this year

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 25, 2014

Obama brings the Sanctuary Movement to full flower!

Thanks to reader Susan for sending us this list of how many of the illegal alien children have already been placed in your state in 2014 alone!

Former Catholic nun Darlene Nicgorski seeing her ‘work’ continued by Barack Obama. http://blogs.libraries.claremont.edu/sc/2012/07/darlene-nicgorski-papers.html

From the Office of Refugee Resettlement:

Once the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) receives a child from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), we have the responsibility to continuously seek placement options in the child’s best interest. This typically involves releasing children to sponsors. Sponsors are adults who can suitably provide for the child’s physical and mental well-being and have not engaged in any activity that would indicate a potential risk to the child.

We try to place the child with a parent, and if that is not possible, with a relative, and if that is not possible, with a family friend.

Here (below) are the top ten states where the “children” have been sent to join “sponsors.”   These are not the “children” being housed in bulk in various places around the US.  Those were identified here.

Are your school districts ready?

Darlene Nicgorski’s legacy—the Sanctuary Movement is alive and well (legal and paid for by you!).

I suspect these numbers reflect the population of Central Americans in certain states.  For example, Maryland has a huge number of Salvadorans (and other Central Americans) who got here through the Sanctuary Movement in the 1980′s.  Additionally, Maryland has the well-established illegal alien advocacy and support group—Casa de Maryland—which grew out of the Sanctuary Movement*** and is now getting government grants to help support the illegals (including the “children”) arriving in the state.

Texas:  4,280

New York:  3,347

Florida:  3,181

California:  3,150

Virginia:  2,234

Maryland:  2,205

New Jersey:  1,504

North Carolina:  1,191

Georgia:  1,154

Louisiana:  1,071

*** I encourage you to read one of several posts (and follow links) at RRW about the roots of the Central American invasion of the US that the Left calls the Sanctuary Movement.    Chicago Catholics (Saul Alinsky got his start among them) were at the heart of the movement and today Obama is finishing their work — work that began when he was a pothead college student, not interested in much other than getting high.

Remember!  The Left (Progressives, Socialists, Communists) never rest….

Here is one paragraph from my August 2011 post.

The good Catholic nun and her friends took it upon themselves to break the law and get them across the border.   I would recommend that readers with an interest in this topic read, ‘God and Caesar at the Rio Grande’ by Hillary Cunningham for more on the Religious Left and Liberation theology and how they justified breaking the law and planting the seeds of unrest we have in many American cities with the huge illegal alien population today.

Our now very extensive archive on the ‘unaccompanied minors’ invasion is here.

Friday round-up: Top posts, top countries

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 25, 2014

Since I don’t know how many readers have a look at our Top Posts every day in the right hand sidebar, thought maybe I would, at the end of each week, give a brief summary of what readers were most interested in over the previous seven days.

Here are the top three this week:

Athens, GA:  Do you know you will soon be receiving hundreds of third-worlders?

Tennesseans urging US Senators to block possible border surge to Tennessee

Refugee Resettlement Fact Sheet

Of course the lion’s share of our readers come from the US, but here are the top ten countries from which readers came to RRW in the past seven days (although there were about another 140 countries on the list).  In descending order:

United Kingdom

Canada

Australia

Hong Kong

South Africa

Germany

Thailand

Afghanistan

France

Pakistan

It is only July 25th, but already this month we have broken all records for readership and we are recording the largest number of  readers here in our seven-year history.

If you are a new reader, consider subscribing or follow us on twitter (@refugeewatcher) or facebook (RefugeeInfoResource).  Like us!

And apologies to all who e-mail and comment, sorry if I don’t respond much, there are just not enough hours in my day!

P.S. to critics:  This is a charitable enterprise on my part, let’s just call it an ‘act of love’ to spend hours every day informing average taxpaying American citizens about the migrant tide (much of it LEGAL) flooding our towns and cities through a morass of government programs dressed up to look like ‘religious charity.’

You have a right to know what they plan for your community!

Obama Administration may redefine legal definition of “refugee”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 24, 2014

Update July 25th:  Jonathon Moseley, writing at American Thinker has a good piece laying out why (legally) they are not “refugees.”   Hat tip: Cathy.

Unbelievable!  In order to ‘solve the border crisis’ the Obama Administration is considering redefining the decades old international standards of who is, and who isn’t a refugee.

Here is the definition of a refugee as updated in 1967 (from the original 1951 UN Convention):

“A person who owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country; or who, not having a nationality and being outside the country of his former habitual residence as a result of such events, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to it..”[8]

Although they say the plan would only be “tested” in Central America, what we understand they are proposing would mean that every person, ultimately anywhere in the world, (fearing crime in their home country) could run to their local US Embassy and apply for refugee status.  Note that “crime” or even fear of “violence” from gangs is not in the definition!

A couple of major principles they want to destroy are 1) that refugees (and asylum seekers) must have left the country of their “persecution” otherwise they are simply “internally displaced people” (not legal refugees). And, 2) as we just mentioned, that trying to escape crime or poverty is not presently grounds for claiming refugee status.  However it is something that the ANTI-BORDERS CROWD HAS BEEN PROMOTING FOR YEARS!

The more they can muddy the definition of “refugee” the more people they can shoe-horn into America.

Before I give you the dreadful news that Drudge is featuring this evening, please also see Mark Krikorian here on another important point.  Legitimate asylum seekers (being persecuted for race, religion or political views) are supposed to ask for asylum in the first safe country they reach after escaping the place of their persecution.  So, in fact, if these “children” were legitimately fearful they were supposed to have asked for protection in Mexico.

For me, this news, spells the end for the United States of America as we know it, and may well be the single most destructive act of all by a President who threatened/promised to “fundamentally change America.”

Tonight we have Karl Rove focusing on the shiny object—Obama’s fundraisers—while Obama quietly plots the destruction of America’s sovereignty and economy.

From the New York Times:

Hoping to stem the recent surge of migrants at the Southwest border, the Obama administration is considering whether to allow hundreds of minors and young adults from Honduras into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico, according to a draft of the proposal.

If approved, the plan would direct the government to screen thousands of children and youths in Honduras to see if they can enter the United States as refugees or on emergency humanitarian grounds. It would be the first American refugee effort in a nation reachable by land to the United States, the White House said, putting the violence in Honduras on the level of humanitarian emergencies in Haiti and Vietnam, where such programs have been conducted in the past amid war and major crises.

Critics of the plan were quick to pounce, saying it appeared to redefine the legal definition of a refugee and would only increase the flow of migration to the United States.

[....]

Administration officials confirmed that they are considering the idea, although they stressed that no decision has been made to move forward. They said the idea is one of many being discussed by officials at the White House and the Departments of State, Homeland Security, Justice, and Health and Human Services.

[....]

Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which supports tighter controls on immigration, said that the proposal would increase, not stem, the flood of migrants from Central America trying to get into the United States.

“It’s clearly a bad idea,” Mr. Krikorian said. “Orders of magnitude more people will apply for refugee status if they can just do it from their home countries.”

He added that the proposal would allow people to claim to be refugees from their countries with “nothing more than a bus ride to the consulate. We’re talking about, down the road, an enormous additional flow of people from those countries.”

You can bet the refugee contractors are jumping for joy!  But they shouldn’t be because the inevitable angry backlash against tens of thousands, potentially hundreds of thousands, of phony “refugees” flooding into America needing their “services” will be something no one wants to see.  And, those of you who truly care for real refugees should be weeping at this news.

Meanwhile, just as I was writing this, Republican Rep. Paul Ryan was on TV talking about his new program to combat poverty (poverty! he hasn’t seen anything yet), and Karl Rove was yammering about Obama’s fundraisers while Obama is busy  bringing America to its knees.

Heck! Obama can apparently fly around the US on Air Force One and destroy the country at the same time!

There is moaning in Minnesota over possible loss of $$$ for refugee contractors

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 24, 2014

What took them so long, many other resettlement contractors around the country have already set up their chorus of howls over the threatened loss of federal money should Congress not give Obama the BILLIONS he wants for the “chiiildruun.”

As we have said repeatedly:  not enough money, then don’t bring so many new refugees into America!

(Or, LOL! give up some of your big salaries to the poor refugees, 63% of Minnesota’s Somalis live below poverty line!).

Editors note: Before you proceed to read the latest (below), including from the Lutherans, see our post of last September when we reported that the CEO of Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota was pulling down an astounding $441,767 in salary and benefits before his retirement.

Here from the Minneapolis Star Tribune (aka Red Star), thanks to reader Jay, is the Minnesota caterwauling (emphasis is mine):

Rep. Keith Ellison: “…favors funneling resources toward the minors coming up from Central America, but said there is enough money to go around.”

Minnesota refugee resettlement organizations are increasingly panicked that the surge of unaccompanied kids from Central America streaming across the border will siphon federal dollars away from the 4,000 refugees and asylum-seekers that arrive on the state’s doorstep every year.

Federal officials are warning that unless Congress approves President Obama’s $3.7 billion funding request before the August congressional recess, $94 million that had been devoted mostly to refugees instead will be diverted to the escalating crisis on the border.

[....]

Because Minnesota is one of the top resettlement states for refugees from Somalia, Bhutan, Burma, Iraq and other troubled countries, organizations across the state that help new arrivals assimilate, get jobs and learn English say a shortage of funds could jeopardize their work.

“Of course this is scary to us. We’re not in the business of pitting refugees against minors because it’s a terrifying situation for both groups,” said Kim Dettmer, director of refugees services at Lutheran Social Service. “Obviously these minors need help and obviously the refugees need help, as well. In my ideal world, we would have enough money to serve refugees and the children crossing the border would be safe and receive humane treatment.”

Did you know that one of the driving forces for resettlement in your state is the RELIGIOUS resettlement contractors, like these Lutherans, acting as head-hunters for big businesses looking for cheap labor?  Is this an appropriate role for them and their bosses at the US State Department?  I wonder does Jennie-O send them a little spare change?  And, of course, this is why Grover Norquist and his Republican pals are on the same side as Keith Ellison.

Her organization also helps refugees find work — an aspect of the program that is booming in Minnesota, given the state’s low unemployment rate. Lutheran Social Service has an office in St. Cloud that places refugees at Hormel’s Jennie-O plant and other factories and hotels for service work.

Public-private partnership—what a joke!

As we have demonstrated repeatedly, the contractors are receiving over 90% of their funding from the feds.  And, get this!  Ms. King of the politically hard Left MN Council of Churches talks about volunteer time.  Well the contractors log volunteer hours and are then paid CASH from the federal treasury for those hours on top of all the other largesse they receive!

“This program is a public-private partnership and I think Minnesota is very good at the private part of it, leveraging volunteer time and the other work,” said Rachele King, director of refugee services at the Minnesota Council of Churches. “It’s the public part, they’re not holding up their end of the bargain.”

Minnesota Council of Churches is also a refugee resettlement contractor/community organizer.  Out of time, research on their $$$ (your tax dollars) will have to wait for another day.

Amarillo, TX, a pocket of resistance, is still trying to stop the resettlement of refugees to their overloaded city

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 24, 2014

We told you about Amarillo, here, back in February.  They were appealing to their Congressman for help in stemming the migrant tide.

Apparently their REPUBLICAN Congressman (did he get a visit from Grover Norquist?) didn’t do much for them because, according to this article, they are now turning to their state legislators.

[This is not a story about 'unaccompanied minors,' but for new readers it is one about the three-decades-old federal program quietly resettling the third-world into America via phony 'non-profit' contractors.]

We know this same-old-story well—city services depleted, health department stressed to the max, schools filled with needy children who don’t speak English, not enough housing or jobs.  But, there is one thing that jumped out at me in the same-old-story (high-lighted in red below).

Wyoming and Athens, GA, are you listening?

A case of the dueling contractors?

From News Channel 10:

Amarillo, TX – Amarillo has one of the highest numbers of refugees for a city across the country.

The city has been working to reduce the number of refugees for two years now because they say the number is too high for the city to support.

One of the main concerns the city is seeing is with school funding.

Mayor Paul Harpole says the number of refugees Amarillo is receiving is putting a strain on schools.

“Our concern is that our schools get enough funding to take care of this or we limit the number to more with what our population is. We are getting a higher number of refugees in our city than any other city in the United States of America and we don’t think that is good for the refugees in our city” said Harpole.

Amarillo has been doing refugee resettlement since 1979.

The city says they will still welcome refugees to the area, but the large number is outgrowing the city.

“We have been traditionally accepting, we have Catholic Family Services and now Refugee Resettlement of Texas*** and they have worked well with the refugee population. But we just think it is getting a little too stout for what we should be getting in our city,” said Harpole.

I couldn’t decide if I should liken the contractors to dogs fighting over a bone (federal money) or sharks seeing blood in the water (federal money).  But these dogs seemed appropriate (federal grants/contracts are, of course, the bone).  For new readers, contractors are paid by the head for each refugee they resettle in your towns and cities.

And it makes you wonder if the US State Department is doing its job when it awards contracts???

News Channel 10 continued:

Art work: Kitt Gardner

Nancy Koons, the executive director of Catholic Charities of the Texas Panhandle, which provides refugee resettlement services.

Koons says they started reducing their numbers back in 2011 to help with the issue.

“When we reduced our numbers from 400 to 200, Refugee Services of Texas, another agency in town picked them up, so we ended up with a net of no difference … so we still have a high resettlement rate,” said Koons.

 [....]

The mayor will meet with Senator Kel Seliger this week and other state leaders in Austin about the problem.

Learn how the federal government (ORR) has hired “Welcoming America” to try to clean up the “pockets of resistance.”

***Refugee Resettlement of Texas is a subcontractor of THREE of the major resettlement contractors:  Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Church World Service and Episcopal Migration Ministries. Wow!  I guess no one is mediating the contracting wars that must be going on in Washington!

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

US Attorney Virginia: Somali refugee women charged with funding Somali Islamic terror group

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 24, 2014

I was surprised to see this story.  I thought all of the cases of Islamic terror fundraising for al-Shabaab by Somalis we brought to America through refugee resettlement (at your expense) had gone to trial and those convicted were safely tucked away in prison (at your expense).  Oh, and adding insult to injury, it is surely your welfare dollars they are sending to Africa.

Surprise!  Here is yet another case!   One of the women is from Seattle, Washington and the other from Reston, Virginia.  The story I first saw is this one from the Seattle Times via AP (thus the focus on Seattle’s alleged terrorist).

Dhirane appeared in District Court in Seattle on Tuesday. http://www.kirotv.com/news/news/kent-woman-suspected-funding-terrorist-group/ngmYG/

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A Washington state woman and four other people have been charged with funneling money to the al-Qaida-linked extremist group al-Shabab in Somalia.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Alexandria announced the charges Wednesday. The two women, one from Kent, Wash., and the other from Reston, Va., are charged with providing material support to a foreign terrorist network. The U.S. designated al-Shabab as a terrorist group in 2008.

Prosecutors say 44-year-old Hinda Osman Dhirane of Kent and 34-year-old Muna Osman Jama of Reston were arrested in their homes. Dhirane faces an initial appearance Wednesday at the federal courthouse in Seattle.

Three others overseas have also been charged. One is in custody in the Netherlands; the other two are fugitives in Kenya and Somalia.

Prosecutors say the women raised money for al-Shabab using code words like “orphans” to refer to al-Shabab fighters.

According to the Department of Justice, Dhirane and Jama Jama are leaders of an al-Shabaab fundraising conspiracy operating in the U.S., Kenya, the Netherlands, Somalia and elsewhere.  Jama was allegedly responsible for sending money to Kenya through overseas defendant Fardowsa Jama Mohamed, while Dhirane was primarily responsible for sending money to Somalia through another overseas defendant, Barira Hassan Abdullahi, according to the charges.

The Seattle area boasts the second-largest Somali population in the U.S., behind Minneapolis-St. Paul. Over the years, the FBI and federal prosecutors have attempted to make in-roads into the community.  [I don't think "boasts" is the right word here, do you?---ed]

There is more, read on.

LOL!  Watch for CAIR to come out of the woodwork!

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!!!).

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.

No sympathy here for Catholic Bishops as Obama screws them with executive order!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 22, 2014

Baltimore Archbishop William Lori isn’t smiling now!

Sorry for my choice of words in the title, but there didn’t seem to be anything more fitting then “screw,” which is what Obama (government generally) does to those whose hands are deep into the federal treasury.

Judy just now sent me the Bishops whining and moaning press release about King Obama’s latest declaration on gender identity and sexual orientation discrimination in agencies of the federal government (which includes federal contractors!).

And, by the way, since this is an Executive Order there is no opportunity to go to Congress for relief.

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops is, of course, a huge federal contractor.

[I thought I was done with the Bishops for today when I finished my previous post a short time ago.]

Do you think they and their Catholic flock will ever get it?  Once your hands are into Caesar’s money, Caesar owns you!  Jesus knew, why don’t they?

From the USCCB (where mixed in with a lot of indignation about “religious freedom” they demonstrate their abject fear of losing their taxpayer funding):

WASHINGTON–The bishop-Chairmen of two USCCB Committees responded with great concern to President Obama’s July 21 executive order to prohibit federal government contractors from what the Administration deems “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” discrimination and to forbid “gender identity” discrimination in the employment of federal employees. The problems the bishops identify in the order relate both to the flaws in its core prohibitions, and to its lack of religious freedom protection.

[....]

Today’s executive order is unprecedented and extreme and should be opposed.

In the name of forbidding discrimination, this order implements discrimination. With the stroke of a pen, it lends the economic power of the federal government to a deeply flawed understanding of human sexuality, to which faithful Catholics and many other people of faith will not assent. As a result, the order will exclude federal contractors precisely on the basis of their religious beliefs.
