WND: Will Wyoming cave to wishes of Governor and invite refugee agency to set up shop?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 6, 2014

As regular readers know Wyoming is the only state in the nation that does not have a refugee resettlement contractor working to bring in third-worlders.

At the same time the US State Department, the Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS) and their contractors are always scouting out fresh territory as they wear out their welcome in some overloaded locations where they say “pockets of resistance” have grown.

Tweet the Gov!

Recently the Wall Street Journal reported that Somalis were moving to Wyoming anyway—looking for greener pastures for social services.  We reported that news here.

Now, World Net Daily’s Leo Hohmann (see our archive of some of his detailed coverage of the refugee program by clicking here, Hohmann was one of the first major reporters to reveal how much federal money the “church” contractors are receiving) has done an investigative report on a subject of great interest to RRW—the plans by Republican Governor Matt Mead to bring diversity to Wyoming.

However, when Wyomingites got word of the plan all hell broke loose and the Governor is now reportedly just “exploring” the plan to turn over some of Wyoming’s sovereignty to the feds.

Here is Hohmann’s report posted last night:

The Republican governor of Wyoming, the only state that does not participate in a federal program to resettle United Nations refugees, is considering jumping into the fray despite recent problems with Muslim refugees becoming radicalized in Minnesota and Massachusetts.

Gov. Matt Mead has requested information on the U.N. program that assigns refugees displaced by war and ethnic conflicts to various host countries. The U.S. accepts more foreign refugees than all the rest of the world’s countries combined, a State Department official told WND, and many of them come from worn-torn Middle Eastern countries like Iraq and Somalia.

WND reported last month that a new wave of Muslim refugees will be coming to American cities soon from Syria, up to 75,000 of them over the next five years.

The fact that Mead is checking into the program has fueled controversy in the nation’s least-populated state, which is also 85 percent white.

Facebook pages have popped up and local newspaper editorial pages have been abuzz with questions about Mead’s decision to “explore” the possibility of opening an international refugee resettlement office in Gillette that would be operated by a Lutheran agency serving as a government contractor.

 The topic of refugee resettlement for Wyoming became a primary election debating point for Mead:

At a July 15 debate with Haynes, Mead, a former U.S. attorney for Wyoming who was elected governor in 2010, insisted no decisions had been made on whether to start a refugee resettlement program.

But Mead sounded like a man who’d made up his mind to pursue a refugee program when he sent a Sept. 5, 2013 letter to Eskinder Negash, the director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

In that letter, a copy of which has been obtained by WND, Mead informed Negash that “The State of Wyoming has elected to pursue a Public-Private Partnership model of a Refugee Resettlement program and to participate in that program through the Office of refugee Resettlement (sic).”

Mead went on to write that “This formalizes the work of the many interested persons and organizations across many years. Wyoming will designate a Refugee Resettlement Program Coordinator in the near future.”

Continue reading, there is a lot of good stuff in here that applies to your community as well.

Pay attention to the issue of secrecy surrounding the Wyoming plan by the would-be Lutheran contractor in addition to the lack of information about the real cost of the program to local taxpayers.  By the way, you will see that the spokesperson for the governor is still peddling the illusion that bringing in the Lutheran agency means they are dealing with a private church group instead of the reality—Lutheran Social Services Rocky Mountains is an arm of the federal government!

Then near the end, Mike Elmore, a Gillette area rancher echos the sentiments of virtually every critic of the refugee resettlement program run by the US State Department (UN!):

 “I’m not a bigoted or racist person, but we have our own problem, here in Gillette, we’re one of the best cities in Wyoming, but what are we looking for, unskilled labor? I’m concerned that the U.S. at this point in time can’t be everybody’s keeper. Let’s take care of our own people first.

ISIS jihadists pose as refugees to get into Germany; chaos on Turkish border blamed

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 6, 2014

Thanks to Brenda Walker at Limits to Growth for her post yesterday (and reader Joanne) for sending it our way.

Note that the fake refugees are expected to pass through Turkey and remember that the US State Department announced last month that we would be taking large numbers of Syrians from Turkey.

US State Department Deputy Asst. Sec. for PRM, Simon Henshaw: Our resettlement program from Turkey will be the largest in the world. http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/09/13/us-state-department-we-are-bringing-thousands-of-syrians-out-of-turkey-to-the-us/

The Syria/Turkey border is in such chaos that no one knows who is ISIS and who isn’t!

From The Jerusalem Post:

BERLIN – Islamic State combatants disguised as Syrian refugees fleeing the war-torn country want to enter Europe to launch terrorist attacks.

The German mass circulation Bild am Sonntag reported on Sunday that the “Americans succeeded in decoding locked communications of the ISIS leadership.”

The information from monitored ISIS conversations, also known as Islamic State, revealed that the terrorists cannot use airports on their way to Europe because of the strict control. Government officials confirmed the Bild am Sonntag report.

An official for German’s Interior Ministry told the paper that Germany stands in the “focus of jihadist terrorism,” but there is no indication at this time of any concrete attacks.

The Bild am Sonntag wrote,“In view of the chaotic conditions on the Syria-Turkey border, it is nearly impossible to catch ISIS-terrorists in the wave of refugees.“ German security authorities estimate that 450 radical German Muslims have traveled in the direction of Syria. An official from Germany’s intelligence told The Jerusalem Post that it is difficult to track radical German Islamists leaving Germany for Syria because they do not need a visa to first land in Turkey. The southern Turkey border has been the principal point of entry into Syria for jihadists seeking to fight Assad’s regime and create a caliphate state.

Read all of Walker’s post here.

See our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series here.  Germany has been the most “welcoming” country in the West to Syrian refugees. Being a do-gooder nation won’t save them from the likes of ISIS!

Lutherans and UN sign agreement to work together worldwide on refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 6, 2014

Is it official then—that we no longer have poor and suffering Americans (or Europeans) who need the help of the Lutheran Church?

Here we learn that the Lutheran World Federation (expanding its power base among the religious Left?) has signed an agreement to help the UNHCR with refugee camps, etc.  And, we learn that the Lutherans had previously signed an agreement—the first ever—to join forces with an Islamic charity.

From Ecumenical News:

The Lutheran World Federation and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to provide assistance to internally displaced persons and refugees.

“We are witnessing record levels of forced displacement globally, and this makes it all the more important that we and faith-based organizations work together for the sake of the world’s refugees and internally displaced,” Janet Lim, UNHCR’s Assistant High Commissioner, said.

“LWF is a long-standing close partner, and we’re delighted to see the scope for our joint work expand.”

The LWF has worked with UNHCR for more than 50 years the LWF reported on its website.

“This MoU between UNHCR and LWF is not just about our two organizations” LWF general secretary Rev. Martin Junge emphasized. “It is about a dramatically increasing number of refugees and migrants that require concerted efforts and strategic partnerships as the one we have signed today.

Is this why they need more places (like Wyoming) in which to resettle refugees?

They joined forces with Islamic Relief Worldwide in August:

Junge said, “I look forward to exploring together with UNHCR and faith-based actors engaged in the humanitarian field the concrete value we add to humanitarian response in our world today.”

He referred to a similar agreement between the LWF and Islamic Relief Worldwide signed in August to cooperate in humanitarian work.

It is the first official cooperation between a global Christian and a global Islamic humanitarian organization.

In the news about the August agreement, Rev. Junge said “religion is not about violence…”    Tell that to ISIS!

We know the Catholic Bishops get their money from the US taxpayer.  Where does the Lutheran World Federation get its money—are Lutherans worldwide dumping their spare change into collection plates on Sundays?  Or, are they getting some of it from the UN (which is mostly US taxpayer money too!)?

Catholic editor: Maybe it’s time for Bishops to stop taking federal money

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 5, 2014

I never thought I would see the day when not only would the fact become widely discussed—the fact that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops migration program is almost completely funded by the federal tax payer, but that any Catholic would tell them to stop taking it!

Phil Lawler, editor of Catholic World News: Bishops should stop “cooperating” and “coexisting” with the federal government. (They won’t of course because it’s all about the money!) http://www.catholicculture.org/about/leadership/bio_phil_lawler.cfm

In this story from Breitbart  (hat tip: Joanne) yesterday, Catholic World News editor actually suggests that the Bishops’ moral/religious positions may be perverted as a result of taking millions from the US Treasury and so they should consider withdrawing as the largest refugee resettlement contractor in the US.  Unbelievable!

First Breitbart reporter Dr. Susan Berry sets the stage with most that regular readers here already know:

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is funneling $4 million over the next two years to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Office of Refugee Resettlement to provide legal representation for 2,600 unaccompanied illegal minors.

“I think it’s a recognition that many of these children have valid protection claims and they need legal representation,” Kevin Appleby of the USCCB told MSNBC. “It is a result of advocacy and raising awareness about why these children are coming and why they’re fleeing.”

As Breitbart News reported Wednesday, a grant in a similar amount will be provided to the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants also to pay for legal services for unaccompanied illegal minors.

The U.S. Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services (MRS) states that it is “the largest resettlement agency in the United States.”

According to the MRS’s most recent annual report, “Upwards of 90,000” young illegal immigrants were projected to arrive between October 1, 2013, and September 30, 2014.

Additionally, MRS showed a total budget of approximately $71 million, of which nearly $66 million – or about 93% – has come from federal grants and contracts.  [It is actually worse than 93%, see summary from the 2012 Annual Report below***---ed].

Because the USCCB accepts federal contracts and funding, it may be subject to federal laws and, especially in the case of President Barack Obama, executive orders, that may conflict with Catholic teaching and from which there is no exemption.

Read about the Obama Executive Order we told you about here in July.  Then this:

Nevertheless, the bishops show no inclination to address whether they should be “coexisting” and “cooperating” with the federal government in the first place.

Phil Lawler, editor of Catholic World News (CWN), seemed to think the bishops’ call to “oppose” the executive order was unrealistic.

[....]

Lawler suggested instead that the bishops simply stop taking federal contracts.

“President Obama doesn’t want help from the Catholic Church. Say it’s a deal; don’t give him any.”

The bishops, however, have a history of “coexisting” and “cooperating” with the government.

*** From the US Conference of Catholic Bishops 2012 Annual report for Migration and Refugee Services (be sure to check out the report and see all the things the Bishops lobbied on that year).

Page 13:

REVENUE

Federal Grants/Contracts           $65,911,344  (taxpayer money)

CRS Collection                            $ 1,369,807

Refugee Travel Loan Fees            $ 3,622,886   (this is taxpayer $ too, feds loaned it and USCCB collects and keeps some)

Investment Income and                 $65,719
Private Grants/Donations

Other                                              $5,481

Total Revenue                               $70,975,237

 

So, that’s about 98% of their funds for 2012 that came from you!  That is not what I call Christian charity!

All of our coverage of the ‘Unaccompanied minors’ issue is here.  I think the Bishops actually helped light the fire for the kids to head north when they traveled to Central America in 2013, resulting in lobbyist Appleby writing this report.

Here is what I said in July just as the border surge was getting fully underway about that report:

With their trip to Central America and the follow-up report one wonders if the Bishops were prescient in predicting 60,000 invaders or were they helping to make it happen?

Will American refugee worker be next on ISIS list?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 5, 2014

Update October 14th:  Greta Van Susteren calls out “moderate” Muslims in America and asks them to repudiate ISIS for being anti-Islam if they kill Kassig, here.

Update October 13th:  More of Kassig’s family history in the peace and justice movement, refugee resettlement at USA Today.

Apparently ISIS has featured an Indiana refugee worker for its next possible beheading.  Peter Kassig briefly served in the US Army, but came from a family “with a long history of doing humanitarian work.”

In fact, near the end of this AP story we learn that Peter had earlier helped with the resettlement of Burmese refugees in Indiana before making the jump to helping refugees in Syria.   Longtime readers know that some cities in Indiana, especially Fort Wayne, have been completely overloaded with mostly Burmese refugees.  It is one of the first overloaded cities we learned about back in 2007 and the situation there prompted former Senator Richard Lugar to ask for a GAO study of the refugee program which concluded that communities are completely unprepared for the numbers the US State Department and their contractors are bringing in.  But I digress…

Will ISIS care that he was a good person helping refugees? Or, that he converted to Islam?

Family photo of Kassig delivering aid to Syrian refugees.

From AP:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The parents of an Indiana man threatened with beheading by the Islamic State group are pleading with his captors to free him, saying in a video statement Saturday that their son has devoted his life to humanitarian work and aiding Syria’s war refugees.

Ed and Paula Kassig’s video was released a day after the Islamic State group’s online video threatened to behead 26-year-old Peter Kassig next — following the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning.

That video was a heartbreaking development for Kassig’s family and friends, who had stayed silent since his capture while working to secure his release.

In the family’s video, Ed Kassig says his son, who now goes by the first name Abdul-Rahman after converting to Islam during his captivity, was captured on Oct. 1, 2013, in Syria, where he was providing aid for refugees fleeing that country’s civil war.

He says his son has grown “to love and admire” the Syrian people, after growing up in an Indianapolis family with a long history of humanitarian work and teaching.

“Our son was living his life according to that same humanitarian call when he was taken captive,” says Ed Kassig, a teacher.

[....]

Kassig focused on humanitarian work after leaving the military. While attending Indianapolis’ Butler University, he worked to help refugees from Myanmar who had resettled in central Indiana, said family spokeswoman Jodi Perras.

In my opinion, that since Kassig converted to Islam it would be in the best PR interests of ISIS to spare him—to teach the Islamic lesson: convert or die.  Why the hell say that if one converts and dies anyway!

This must be having a chilling effect on those considering “humanitarian” work in the Middle East.

Norway deports Somalis, but Somali government refuses to take them

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 4, 2014

Think about this dilemma for every Western country with trouble-making Somalis!  The new Somali government doesn’t want them back!

See our post just about two weeks ago—Soul-searching in Scandinavia—about how Norway is getting tougher on the issue of Muslim immigration.

From Horseed Media:

Somalia’s government has refused to receive a number of Somali refugees who were deported back from Europe, an official has confirmed.

Abdullahi Gafow, Director of Immigration and Citizenship. I wonder does he have the nerve to send those planeloads back to Saudi Arabia? http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/01/05/saudi-arabia-deports-200-more-somalis-who-were-only-seeking-a-better-life/

Abdullahi Gafow, Director of Immigration and Citizenship, said that six Somali nationals were ‘’illegally’’ deported back from Norway and they were denied an entry.

‘’We won’t receive any refugees who are forced or illegally deported. We have already sent them back’’

‘’ The Norwegian government informed us that they will deport them back by force, but we also told them that we won’t accept,’’ he claimed.

Earlier this year, Somalia’s semi-autonomous region of Puntland also refused to receive Somali nationals from the Norwegian government.

Human rights and advocacy groups have voiced their concerns on deportation of Somalis seeking for asylum, saying that it represents a clear violation of international refugee conventions.

Across Europe, tens of thousands of Somalis are in legal limbo, waiting to have asylum claims processed, or under threat of return to the war-torn nation t if their applications have been rejected.

See our extensive archive on Norway by clicking here.

By the way, we have been told the US is deporting Somalis, but I doubt the Obama Administration has put a single one on a plane.

African immigrants to America double every decade

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 4, 2014

Earlier this week, Brenda Walker at Limits to Growth posted this very interesting news about recent Census numbers involving African immigration to America.

Walker begins:

Africa-born people are currently in the news, in a bad way, given the spread of ebola to America in recent days.

As it happens, this week the Census released a 10-page report about Africans in the US: The Foreign-Born Population From Africa: 2008-2012.

It has numerous charts and tables like the map below, showing the location of national groups in the US. We now know about the 10,000 Liberians in north Texas because of the ebola flap, but there are many more of that nationality in Philadelphia.

Go to Limits to Growth to see Walker’s commentary with maps and more charts!

Which African countries are represented in your city?

This post is filed in our extensive ‘where to find information’ category.

Come to think of it, I’m kind of surprised that the Census Bureau is even reporting this information, isn’t it just downright politically incorrect to notice!

Did ‘Unaccompanied alien children’ bring Enterovirus68 with them?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 4, 2014

Update October 5th:  The Conservative Treehouse has been working on making the connection between the arrival of the hordes of Central America “children” and the nationwide outbreak of Enterovirus68.   I’m not convinced the evidence is conclusive yet, but hope the many excellent blogger/researchers out there continue working on this important question.

I heard a Fox News commentator briefly ask that question more than a week ago, so I’m always on the look-out for some major news outlet even hinting at the possibility.  I haven’t seen it yet. Have you?  However, lots of Americans are asking that question because the timing of the rare virus outbreak surely raises suspicions.  And, if the mainstream media is mum, the alternative media sure isn’t.

We mentioned another report alleging that the “children” did bring the sickness, here, a few weeks ago.

Here is one more story, this time from the Chicago Examiner:

Enterovirus 68, the respiratory infection that has taken the nation by storm, is spreading unlike previous outbreaks of the virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as reported by the New York Times. The latest report on the disease by the CDC claims that nearly 500 cases of the virus’ infection have been confirmed as of this week. Medical experts have said that the real number of Enterovirus 68 cases is most likely much greater because many with symptoms have not been tested.

Here is a map from last week about the spread of Entervirus68. It is the most recent map I found. http://flashnewsnetwork.blogspot.com/2014/09/enterovirus-8-new-states-added-to-list.html

On Friday, ABC News reported that there are three more cases of Enterovirus 68 at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Additionally, there have been four deaths very possibly linked to Enterovirus 68. The threat of the infection and its devastation on its victims seem to be growing daily.

Though the White House, the CDC, and the major news outlets aren’t making the obvious connection to the recent reports of immigration and massive acceptance of refugee children along the United States’ southern border, it is logically on the minds of Americans near and far. The refugee crisis that took hold of the nation this past summer caused political riffs between liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans. Politically, Democrats – lead by the likes of Rep. Nancy Pelosi – insisted that accepting the throngs of children into the United States was the right thing to do. Such persons have become more increasingly quiet on the topic as the spread of childhood diseases and more has swept the country.  [These are not "refugees."  They will attempt to be, but aren't yet!---ed]

It has been reported that many of these children who entered the United States via the liberally-promoted refugee barrage at the border were allowed to enter the country without any health screening whatsoever – even though it is logical to believe these people could be bringing in diseases from the far corners of the globe. Furthermore, Joe Walsh on WIND-AM talk radio in Chicago insists that public schools have been ordered to accept these children – from throughout the world – without any health screenings being given to the children entering our nation’s schools.

About that map.  Those who claim there is no connection between the throngs of Unaccompanied minors (see the list of states where they have been located) and the troubling virus might point to that map and ask why then has Texas not been hit?

This border surge by the “children” has been coming for a long time!

All of our coverage of ‘Unaccompanied minors’ is here.  The illegal alien children have been coming across our southern border for years, so our archive extends back to 2008.  One of our earliest posts on the “children” was a 2008 story where Catholic Charities in Virginia was accused of obtaining an abortion for a teenaged (unaccompanied) Guatemalan girl in their care, here.

However, for those paying attention, Don Barnett writing at the Center for Immigration Studies warned of the potential for a huge problem with the ‘unaccompanied minors’ here as early as 2004.  It took only the right combination of a wrong-headed law at the disposal of greedy church groups fanning the flames and a President willing to throw open our borders to bring us to this present irreversible crisis.

Will the thousands of Syrian refugees now being admitted to the US be Christians?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 4, 2014

That is a question I get all the time.  My best guess is that a few will be, but the vast majority will be Sunni Muslims.

My guess is based on a few facts from the past, first that of the Iraqi refugees we have resettled in recent years, the majority (we hear 62% this past year) are Muslims, and secondly, I have never seen in print any clamor from our major refugee resettlement contractors***, most of which are ostensibly Christian groups (US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee service and others), for specifically saving the Christians of the Middle East.

Now outdated map (thanks to ISIS), but it gives you some idea of the areas that were Christian. See this article about Christians fighting with Assad against the “rebels.” http://thechristians.com/?q=node/880

Maybe someone could direct me to anything where these contractors said to the US State Department—we want more Christians to resettle!  My guess as to why they haven’t said that (correct me if I’m wrong and they have) is because of an overwhelming and insane desire to be politically correct and a fear of being called Islamophobes.

(Oh, and believe me, they aren’t taking mostly Muslims because they think they can convert them to Christianity, this is all about multiculturalism, diversity and inclusiveness!)

A writer (Terry Mattingly) at a website called ‘GetReligion’ addressed his question—how are refugees being chosen?—in response to the Washington Post article of this past week (our post here) where the WaPo tells us the State Department is processing 4,000 resettlement applications.

Mattingly found more evidence that most will be Muslims.

He says that since they will come from UN camps (after all the UN is pre-selecting for the US State Department), and the Christians are not in camps, surely the majority will be Muslims.  As a matter of fact, I’ve read that many Christians are still in Syria somewhat protected by the secular Assad government.

Here is ‘GetReligion:’

First, the WaPo said this:

Most Syrian refugees considered candidates for U.S. residency have been living in refugee camps or elsewhere outside Syria for a year or much longer.

And then this from Terry Mattingly (emphasis is mine):

This leads to a logical question: Who is, when push comes to shove, running these UNHCR camps? In particular, I was curious to know how this selection system would affect the cases of refugees who are part of oppressed religious minority groups. I decided to ask a veteran human-rights activist about that.

The response? Christians on the run have been avoiding these camps because they tend to be hostile to minority-faith refugees. In other words, these camps are run by those in majority forms of Islam, even if they have – logically enough – clashed with the radicalized Islamic State.

In other words, we have a major religion ghost in this story. It is likely that the current pipeline to safety is all but closed to Christians and members of other minority faiths in this ravaged region.

Read it all.

Where are the ‘Unaccompanied alien children?’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 3, 2014

Editor’s note:  It has been one of those days and many potential posts were not posted.  Thanks to all who have sent story ideas, hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

In our earlier post this morning we reported that Obama was awarding millions of dollars to refugee contractors to hire lawyers for some of the “children” who broke into America over the summer.  A reader alerts us to the latest numbers (as of August 31) by state of where the Office of Refugee Resettlement has sent them.

So, look at this list and remember that the states getting lawyers for illegal alien children are MD/VA, CA, TX, FL, TN, LA, AZ.  Why Tennessee and Arizona when there are several states with more illegal alien children?

Update:  I didn’t notice originally that you can check out your counties here.
