Colorado refugees lobby for more money for ORR as a result of border surge

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 10, 2014

UpdateAlaska chiming in too—wahhhh! we need money for refugees!  (Hat tip: Joanne)

You have to hand it to them, the refugee industry federal contractors*** sure can gin-up a media/lobbying campaign when threatened with the prospect that their funding (through the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR)) might be slashed.

Republican Rep. Mike Coffman of Aurora, CO: wrong to cut funding for refugees.

Here is a Denver Post story saying much the same as we are seeing around the country—waahhhh! we are going to lose funding because of all the “children” surging across the border.  But, of course they want the children too (as clients and as potential Democrat voters)!

A Colorado Republican Congressman agrees the money shouldn’t be cut!

From the Denver Post:

People who help refugees in Colorado are concerned that their program funding may be diverted to help the unaccompanied children coming over the border, and the refugee community is taking action by visiting local politicians to lobby for their cause.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement — which funds a variety of programs including refugee assistance and the needs of unaccompanied child migrants — has proposed redirecting $94 million in funding from refugee programs to use for the humanitarian crisis of children coming across the borders.

The number of children this year has swamped projections, creating a funding shortfall, and in June the agency notified Congress that it must reduce refugee services.

Here is USCRI again (99% funded by you!):

If Congress approves the emergency funding, there will be no cuts to the refugee programs, said Stacie Blake, spokeswoman for the U.S. Committee for Refuges and Immigrants. But without that funding, she said, across the United States, programs in English as a second language will be eliminated, critical employment programs for refugees will be shut down, and thousands of Americans who serve refugees will lose their jobs.

Refugee lobbying delegation visited Congressional office:

A delegation of about eight refugees recently visited the Aurora office of U.S.Rep. Mike Coffman. Narabada Bhandara from Nepal learns how to make a resume in the workshop at the Africa Community Center in Denver, Colo., Tuesday, July 8, 2014.

“We explained that you cannot solve one crisis by creating another crisis,” said Bhuwan Tyakurel, a community leader with the Global Bhutanese Community Colorado.

Coffman agrees.

“It would be wrong to divert any funding that is already dedicated to serving the African, Burmese, Bhutanese and Nepalese refugees in my district who are already in this country,” he said via email. “No doubt, what is occurring at the border is a humanitarian crisis but arbitrarily punishing one immigrant community for the benefit of another is wrong, and what is needed right now is a solution that stops the problem at our border from getting worse.”

Minnesota report: unvaccinated Somali child was “Patient Zero” in 2011 measles outbreak

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 10, 2014

From Hiiraan:

A new report investigating a recent measles outbreak in Minnesota offers a new window into how the disease can be spread by just one unvaccinated person.

Here’s how the 2011 outbreak, which sickened 19 children and two adults in Minnesota, happened:

An unvaccinated Somali-American 2-year-old some have dubbed “Patient Zero” traveled with his parents to Kenya, where he contracted the measles virus.

When the family returned to Minnesota, the child showed symptoms, including a fever, cough and vomiting.

But before he was diagnosed as having measles, the child had already passed the virus on to three other children at his daycare center, and another household member, CBS News reports.

Ultimately, more than 3,000 people in in the tight-knit Twin Cities Somali community were exposed to the disease.


Minnesota Department of Health researchers say that is typical in the Somali immigrant community, where MMR vaccination rates remain low, CBS News reports.

In 2004, the number of Somali children in the state who were on schedule with their MMR topped 90 percent.

“By 2010, that was down to just 54 percent,” epidemiologist Pam Gahr, who led the new research, told CBS.

She says the steep drop in vaccinations stems from misinformation about a link between the MMR vaccine and autism.

Lutherans may be operating centers for ‘unaccompanied minors’ in your state

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 8, 2014

Just can’t get away from it.  The issue of  illegal alien teens (and to a lesser extent women and children) surging across our border is inescapable.  And, so you know that its not just the Catholics cashing in on the crisis, here is the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod with its action appeal for its master—Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services!

We don’t know who the 45 partners are, but below are LIRS subcontractors.

Gotta keep up their real estate holdings! The Lutheran Center (LIRS headquarters) is a six-story structure constructed in 1999 on property owned by Baltimore’s historic Christ Lutheran Church. The building is located near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor in the historic Federal Hill neighborhood, a charming area rich with history and an eclectic array of eateries and shopping venues.

More than 45 Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) partners are providing care and services to help the influx of unaccompanied immigrant children crossing the southern U.S. border in response to what is being called a humanitarian crisis.

That support is being provided at the request of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement — the government body with whom LIRS has worked as an “advocate and strong partner” for the past decade on behalf of the safety of unaccompanied immigrant children, said Kimberly Haynes, LIRS director of Children’s Services.

LIRS was asked “to expand and engage networks” to help meet the growing needs of thousands of children, including many fleeing “horrific” situations in Central America, Haynes said.

Before I give you their state affiliates, check out this post we wrote in May of last year about their finances.  (This was when LIRS was lobbying for S.744).

Have a look at a recent Form 990 for Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, page 9. They had income in that year of $31,653,748 and, of that, you, the taxpayers of America, gave them $30,376,568.  Their CEO* makes $204,186 in salary and benefits.  Where is the ACLU?  No separation of church and state here!   The church is the state!  Just wait until CAIR figures all this out and starts demanding the Muslim share of your tax dollars!

Looks like about 96% of their budget comes from you (the US taxpayer)!

They are probably jumping for joy this afternoon as the word spreads that Obama now wants $3.7 Billion for the “crisis,” a chunk of which will flow into LIRS coffers!  That earlier $2 billion looks like chicken scratch in comparison!

Here is a list of LIRS subcontractors.  If you have one in your town, you might call them and ask if they are bringing illegal alien “children” as an #ActOfLove to your community.  See our May 28th post about LIRS lobbying campaign for the alien minors.  They call it #ActOfLove (if you are on twitter join the fun there!).

Refugee contractors have organized campaign to get more tax dollars due to border invasion; Tennessee this time

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 6, 2014

Here is one more in a spate of stories ginned-up by the federal refugee contractors*** and their 350 subcontractors to bring media attention to their supposed plight.  Waahhhh! We are going to lose funding because of the flood of illegal alien teens (unaccompanied minors) now being treated as asylum-seekers by the Obama Administration (which by the way, the contractors helped encourage to come to America!).

Our solution as I said here yesterday:

Not enough money, stop bringing refugees into the US this year (and next year too).

These people remind me of animal hoarders with a psychological ailment who fill their homes with cats, don’t have the finances to care for them properly, and don’t know when to stop!

From The Tennessean (hat tip: Joanne).  LOL! You can always count on The Tennessean to help Catholic Charities whine!  Emphasis below is mine:

A surge in children illegally crossing the southwestern U.S. border in recent months may soon have an unexpected impact on refugees living in Nashville.

Last week, President Barack Obama asked Congress for more than $2 billion in emergency funds to help address a growing crisis along the Rio Grande, where more than 52,000 children traveling alone and 40,000 women with children have been apprehended illegally crossing the border since October.


Holly Johnson, Catholic Charities of Tennessee, decides which ethnic groups and how many refugees will come to the state. The state has no say in the matter.

The president’s solution would involve redirecting funding already budgeted for refugee programs across the country. Tennessee stands to lose more than $1.6 million of its annual $11 million budget. The cuts would hit programs designed to serve elderly refugees, children in schools and preventive health care for refugees, according to Holly Johnson, state refugee coordinator for the Tennessee Office of Refugees.

The president’s proposal puts refugee advocates in an uncomfortable position, pitting the needs of the population they serve against those of the newly arrived children…. [Too bad! Maybe the Catholic priests and lobbyists who went to Central America late last year shouldn't have encouraged the migrants to start moving north!---ed]


Tennessee accepted more than 1,600 refugees in the last fiscal year. Most of the refugees arriving in Tennessee come from Iraq, Burma, Bhutan, Somalia and Iran. Refugees, by definition, have fled or been forced to leave their countries to escape violence, persecution or natural disaster.

Definition of a Refugee

Tick me off!  Note how reporters just parrot what the contractors tell them about the definition of a refugee.  This has been going on for years—the open borders lobby re-defining “refugee” until it means anything they want, including kids who supposedly are fleeing gang violence.

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]

Do you see anything in there about wars, violence or natural disasters?   Refugees and asylum seekers are supposed to be able to prove they are being persecuted!  Economic migrants and people who claim they are fleeing crime are not refugees!

See, US Catholic Bishops call the illegal aliens, refugees, here.

For our growing readership, all of our posts going back several years on ‘unaccompanied minors’ are here.

Commentary: A Baby’s Dead – Nobody Taught The Refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 6, 2014

Editors note:  This is a guest commentary from reader ‘pungentpeppers.’

We began resettling the more primitive Somali Bantus in 1999.

What’s happening to the money used to settle refugees in the U.S.?  It sure isn’t being spent to teach refugees the basics of life in the U.S.A.

A baby boy, born to Somali refugee parents, might still be alive today if his family understood about smoke detectors.  Officials said 7-month-old Mohamed Ali likely died of smoke inhalation after his family’s apartment building in Phoenix caught fire June 23.  The baby’s mother and grandmother were able to get out the other children living in the apartment, but heavy smoke and a wall of flames prevented them from saving the baby.

The fire displaced about 80 people from the 16-unit complex, which is largely occupied by refugee families. Most have since returned to their apartments.

Per police spokesman Sgt. Trent Crump, investigators believe the family’s apartment didn’t have a working detector — the battery was missing. Crump said that it’s not clear who ­removed the battery or when.

From Arizona Central:

Fatuma Dubow, a Somali refugee who lives in the complex, said most people from her homeland don’t have electricity, so checking a smoke detector or understanding how it works is knowledge that develops over time.

When asked if she has checked her smoke detector’s battery, Dubow said she didn’t know how.

“I tried one day, but I couldn’t,” she said Tuesday as a maintenance man repaired water damage to her kitchen from fighting the fire.

Another Somali refugee who lives nearby said she knew that smoke detectors were important but was under the impression that they alerted police and fire automatically during a fire.

The woman, who did not want to provide her name, said it takes some immigrants years to learn things such as how to dial 911 or what to do when they smell a gas leak. Some type of instruction would help, she said.

(Continue reading here)

Generally refugee resettlement agencies send a caseworker to meet the family at the airport and drive them to a furnished apartment. [It is in their contract with the federal government--ed].  They are then told how to work kitchen appliances, operate the air-conditioner, lock the doors and windows, run the hot- and cold-water taps and call 911. Cathy Peterson, of Catholic Charities Community Service, said “The heath and safety (primer) would include the smoke alarms”.

It’s plain that this group of refugees were not given adequate instruction or training.  It is unfair to them, and to their neighbors, to settle them in unfamiliar environments that are poles apart from what they are used to, and to expect that somehow, magically, the foreign newcomers will “breath in” our way of life.

If people cannot read or understand the basics, what’s the use of giving them a quick talk and handing them a health and safety booklet?!  Do the refugee agencies expect Phoenix fire officials to teach them our way of life in Bantu?! The refugee agencies get paid big bucks to bring people here, but their profit-maximizing, hare-brained “bring ‘em and dump ‘em” scheme – well, it just cost this baby his life.

Boston: Somali former refugee charged with rape (possibly more than one)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 3, 2014

Just for a little change of pace tonight from the ever-expanding crisis on the border, ho-hum we will return to our never-ending Somali crime stories.  This time from Boston last week….

Somali Said Said facing rape charges in Massachusetts. Photo: Boston Globe

From the Boston Herald (Hat tip: crime sleuth ‘pungentpeppers’):

A second reported rape in the Seaport District by a livery driver in less than a year has the city’s taxi union and a South Boston state representative demanding a crackdown before another young woman is attacked in the trendy nightspot.

“This is a real public safety issue, particularly for women in my district,” said Southie state Rep. Nick Collins. “It’s something that we have to resolve and I’ll be looking to work with the city to come up with some new legislation.”

Said Said, 40, of 97 Doane­ St., Quincy, was ordered held on $35,000 cash bail yesterday at his arraignment in South Boston District Court after pleading innocent to charges of aggravated rape, unarmed robbery and receiving stolen property.

Police allege that at midnight Sunday, Said, who is of Somali descent, picked up a woman in a livery mini­van outside Legal Harborside restaurant on Northern Avenue and took her to a deserted South Boston location, where he raped her and stole her cellphone, cash and credit cards before dropping her off on State Street.

 He used the victim’s credit card.  Pretty dumb wouldn’t you say!

Police said they were able to track down Said after he was reportedly caught on surveillance camera using the alleged victim’s credit card to make a purchase at a Walgreens Pharmacy in Quincy.

The victim identified Said in a photo array set up by Boston police,­ according to court documents.

Attack is similar to one that occurred last summer:

Sunday’s alleged assault was eerily similar to an attack that occurred Aug. 6, 2013, when a woman told police she flagged down a livery sedan in South Boston thinking it was a taxi and was instead driven to a secluded area in Newton, where she was raped and assaulted by the driver.

The Boston Globe has more, here.

Using this opportunity to educate all of the new readers the ‘unaccompanied children’ are bringing to RRW, see this important testimony to the US State Department by a former refugee resettlement worker in Boston.

Kentucky: Could the invasion on the border result in fewer refugees admitted to US?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 3, 2014

Update July 4th:  They are crying for more money in Arizona now too! (Hat tip: Joanne).  Too many ‘unaccompanied minors’ siphoning off money for other refugees.  Someone commented to me yesterday, that the open borders pushers (including the Catholic Bishops!) may have over-played their hand this time.

That (fewer refugees) is what a spokesman for Kentucky Refugee Ministries told WFPL News in Louisville earlier this week (Influx of Young Refugees Pinches Kentucky Refugee Services’ Budget).

Or, more likely this is the opening salvo in a lobbying campaign in Congress (by the contractors) to get more of your taxpayer dollars to keep the thousands of Iraqis, Burmese, and Somalis, etc. flowing to middle America.   Thanks to all who sent this article.

Muslim refugee Mustafa allegedly embezzled money from Kentucky Refugee Ministries—is this what they mean by balancing the city?

WFPL News:

An increase of undocumented children coming into America is expected to reduce the funding for services available to displaced people living in Kentucky and across the U.S.

Kentucky Office for Refugees officials expect to see a $2.28 million cut in federal funding to provide refugees in Kentucky with services such as English language learning, career development and housing placement.

The reduction in funding stems from an influx of children coming to the U.S. to escape violence and economic struggle in Central America, refugee services officials said. To better serve these children, the Office for Refugee Resettlement is transferring nearly $94 million to the Unaccompanied Alien Children program. The $2.28 million Kentucky officials expect to lose is a part of the $94 million transfer.

Because of the cuts, thousands of newly arrived refugees would receive a limited amount of these services that aid in creating a seamless transfer to life in America, according to a statement released by Catholic Charities of Louisville.

There is nothing to stop these contractors from RAISING PRIVATE MONEY to do their supposedly charitable work!  They could ask their parishioners for money and hold bake sales!

When the original 1980 Refugee Act was pushed through Congress by Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden and signed into law by Jimmy Carter, there was no discussion of making these ‘religious’ charities quasi-government agencies as they have now become with the majority of their funding coming from you—the US taxpayers.

WFPL continued:

But if the cuts create such a problem that services cannot be provided, a smaller number of refugees may be brought to the United States, Koehlinger [Director of Kentucky Refugee Ministries] added.


More than 2,100 refugees relocated to Louisville in the 2013 fiscal year, according to data provided by Catholic Charities of Louisville. In 2014, the number is expected to remain about the same.


Koehlinger said the strong refugee population in Louisville is vital for a productive, balanced metropolitan area.

What the heck is a “balanced” metropolitan area?  Is that like in Rochester where resettlement contractors dropped off the docile Bhutanese into an African American neighborhood (see our post yesterday on the consequences for the refugees when the do-gooders do their multi-culty mixing experiments)?

See our extensive archive on Kentucky ( here).  They have had some humdinger problems with refugees there.  Mustafa was just the latest most visible problem!  (BTW, he took down his facebook photo and other juicy tidbits about where he has been for the last number of years right after we published the information).

One last thing!  Don’t cry for the contractors, most have largely been responsible for encouraging the invasion of the border because they are being paid to take care of the “children” too!

Unaccompanied minors swamp Lynn, Mass.; no help from feds says mayor

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2014

This story is a week old (trying desperately to catch up!), but figured most of you haven’t seen it.

We previously heard from Mayor Judith Kennedy in 2011 when she begged for the US State Department and the contractors to stop sending refugees to Lynn, here.

Once your town has been tagged as “welcoming” there will be no stopping the flow!

From The Salem News (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

LYNN — An influx of children from Central America immigrating to the United States without their parents is frustrating officials in this gritty city nearly 2,200 miles from the Mexican border.

In the past two years, Lynn has seen waves of unaccompanied minors settle here after crossing the U.S.-Mexican border illegally, city officials say. Most are teenage boys from Guatemala who speak little or no English when they arrive, and they have little or no documentation.

“We have become a major haven for immigration,” said Mayor Judy Kennedy. “But with all these new people come needs: police, fire and city services. And we’re getting no help from the federal government.”

Don’t believe the feds when they tell you the costs will be borne by US taxpayers and not local ones!

Read it all.

See our complete archive of posts on ‘unaccompanied minors’ (aka illegal alien teenagers).

By the way, do you see our category called “community destabilization?”  We set that up years ago to catalog all of the cases where we have identified this Alinsky (Obama, Cloward-Piven) strategy—-destabilizing communities is what this is all about.  That category now has 480 posts in it and they are much much closer to pushing America over the edge.

Did you see this?  Congressman Louie Gohmert said this week that the US will become a third world nation.

Is Albany, NY Rep. Paul Tonko welcoming the “children?” Sure sounds like it!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2014

Update:  Tonko’s Republican challenger is making the issue a campaign issue, see the story here.

He sure isn’t criticizing the idea of bringing hundreds of illegal alien teenagers to Albany.  Does he think like Obama that America needs the “dreamer” kids?  Story hat tip: Laurence.

Rep. Tonko: Strengthen NY communities by bringing in hundreds of Central American teenaged boys?

Meanwhile we note that another federal refugee contractor*** has its hand in the federal till!

From NBC

According to Paul Tonko, the Department of Health and Human Service is looking at many places across the country to house the children that cross the border without adults. There are a few places benig reviewed to house the children One of which, is the old Doane Stuart School building, located on Southern Boulevard in Albany.


“Initial reaction is that these children are escaping violence because of humanitarian efforts of this nation which I think has been our hallmark, to be humanitarian in response to, in this case, children,” said Tonko.


Tonko says other sites in New York State are also being investigated. However, he stresses funding will come from the federal level and not come from the state.  [Yeh right! No cost to the state!---ed]

Previously most federal contracts for caring for the “unaccompanied minors” went to the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and to the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.  Recently we saw that Church World Service is in on the action and now we see USCRIs (US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants) hand in the federal till too!

All of the contractors were lobbying for ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ (S.744) so as to obtain more immigrant ‘clients’ and thus federal grants, but since they aren’t getting that windfall, they will get this one!

NBC continued:

Stacie Blake, with the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants says the main concern is safe place to put the children with access to immigration hearings and an airport.

Something her office knows a lot about.

“Our interest is seeing and hearing these interests upheld because we are learning of these very disturbing reports off these most vulnerable children,” she said.

Upstate New York appears to be a prime target for relocating the “children” away from the border.

All of our coverage of “unaccompanied minors”, going back years, is archived here.

***The contractors (remember some, maybe all by now! are being paid by you to take care of the illegal alien “children!”)

Rochester, NY: Bhutanese refugees fear violence from African Americans

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2014

The US State Department, the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) and whichever resettlement contractor they used in Rochester, NY to resettle these Bhutanese (Nepalese) are a bunch of nincompoops!

They must think that if they plunk down some new minority into an African American neighborhood that all of those people of different colors will somehow sympathize with each other and magically melt into a sort of blissful multicultural co-existence.

From the Democrat and Chronicle:

Locked inside their house in northwest Rochester, the Nepalese family felt under siege.

Outside, a crowd of young men — 20 to 25 in number — broke windows to the home and threatened to storm inside, according to members of the family. Moments before, several young men had followed and jumped a Nepalese teen. That scuffle then escalated into the menacing gang.

It wasn’t until the police came that the crowd scattered. This incident, in daylight hours Thursday, is another in a growing list of attacks against South Asian refugee families who have been settled in areas of northwest Rochester near Jones Square.


As law enforcement officials decide how to curb the intimidation and violence, the refugees themselves say they feel ignored and left to fend for themselves.


Many of the refugees are hesitant to talk to police, and, when they do, they have not been able to provide much information about their attackers. Typically, the offenders have been young African-American men, creating a volatile situation in which the refugees feel at risk in the very neighborhoods where they have been resettled.

Think that’s bad, just wait until potentially thousands of Central American teenage “refugee” boys arrive in upstate New York (resettled there by some of the same nincompoops!). 

They couldn’t create more chaos and strife if they tried (or, scary thought, maybe they are trying?).

For new readers (and we have many lately), here is just one post with a little history (Bush legacy also) about how we have resettled 75,000 Bhutanese/Nepalese in the last 6 years or so.
