Lutheran refugee contractor cheers for Obama amnesty (no surprise!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 23, 2014

We have reported for years on how the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland is one of the leading advocacy groups in the nation involved in the open borders political movement, so this is no surprise.

Before you read on, have a look at a recent Form 990 (page 9) for LIRS.  Their income from gifts, grants and contributions was $41,757,518 and $40,417,752 came from “government grants.”  That means that you, the American taxpayer, “contributed” 97% of their income. Check out their Baltimore digs and note that their income jumped $10 million from 2011 to 2012.

Obama gets a big smooch from LIRS! Linda Hartke, CEO of LIRS makes over $200,000 a year in salary and benefits (you, the American taxpayer, pay her salary) http://lirs.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Linda_Hartke_Bio.pdf

LIRS could not exist and be lobbying for amnesty if it wasn’t for the fact that you pay their salaries and overhead! Galling isn’t it?

One aspect of their enthusiasm for illegal aliens being granted permission to live and work here that I don’t get is this—they are charged with finding jobs for the refugees they resettle and there is no doubt that the Obama reprieve for millions of illegal aliens will put those “new Americans” in direct competition with job-hungry refugees for low-skilled jobs.  Doesn’t LIRS see that?

Here is LIRS cheering the President last Thursday….

From PR Newswire:

BALTIMORE, Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ – Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), and supporters all across America, welcome the significant steps taken today by the Obama Administration that invite our neighbors out of the shadows, bring greater hope and security in the place of fear and stabilize the lives of millions of immigrants living in the United States. The President’s historic announcement of new immigration policies brings hope to immigrant families, aids our communities in being places of welcome, and strengthens our nation by living out American values, and lifting up our economy.  These actions are grounded in our history as a nation that has been renewed and strengthened by each generation of newcomers.

The policies announced today reflect American values of justice and are an important step towards a more humane immigration system. It is our hope that the President’s demonstrated leadership will lead to Congressional action to rebuild an immigration system which further strengthens us as a nation and respects the rights and dignity of people who have come to the United States seeking refuge, family or the dignity of work and wages.

“Today, millions of lives have been changed for the better.  We must continue to lift up the American tradition of being a welcoming society that honors freedom, equality, and opportunity and values each and every person,” said Linda Hartke, LIRS President and CEO. “The President’s actions are a significant step in the right direction – promoting family unity and offering vital solutions for our economy and country.”

As a faith-based organization, LIRS has long advocated for an immigration system that encourages and supports keeping families together, and better protects children, migrants, refugees and other vulnerable persons. The President’s actions today are consistent with LIRS’s core principles of respect for human dignity and the biblical call to welcome the newcomer.

They go on to say they won’t be satisfied until they get the whole ball of wax—comprehensive immigration reform which they lobbied for in 2013.  Of course, we know that the Senate-passed S.744 had many goodies that will flow directly to LIRS and other refugee contractors.

There is contact information (see their press release). If you are a Lutheran who disagrees with what LIRS is doing in your name, you should contact them and let them know how you feel.

For those who want to learn more about LIRS, we have an extensive archive here.  For those following the Wyoming controversy, LIRS in Baltimore is the parent organization of Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains, here (one of our top three posts over the last week).

LIRS is one of the top nine federal resettlement contractors.  Don’t be fooled by the fact that they call themselves Voluntary Agencies.  They are all almost completely funded by you, the American taxpayer.

How tight is the UNHCR with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 22, 2014

I really don’t know, but plan to be keeping an eye out for more news that might shed some light on my hunch that the OIC puts pressure on the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to keep Muslim migrants (“refugees”) headed to Western countries.

We know that the UNHCR is choosing our refugees (the UN tells the State Department which ones to take), and Canada’s as well, and is continually pressuring Australia, New Zealand, Japan and European countries to open their gates to the flood of Muslims coming out of Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

I suspect that the OIC tells the UN to jump, and the UN asks ‘how high?’ but we have no solid information about the role the OIC plays with refugee selection.

Here is a short story I’m posting just so we have it for future reference.  I don’t at this point see any great significance in it, but just don’t want to lose it.

Hot off the presses today from WAM (Emirates News Service):

JEDDAH, 22nd November, 2014 (WAM) — A joint Committee headed by Ambassador Fuad Al-Maznaee, Advisor to the Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, OIC, on Humanitarian Affairs, and Amin Awad, Director, Middle East and North Africa Bureau of the United Nations Refugee Agency, held its first meeting at the UNHCR headquarters in Geneva to discuss ways and means on enhancing areas of cooperation, particularly the implementation of the Ashgabat Declaration, adopted by the OIC Ministerial Conference on Refugees in the Muslim World held in 2012.

During the opening remarks, the two heads of delegations emphasized the importance of strengthening their partnership in areas of common interest, noting that refugees in OIC constitute 57% of the total refugees worldwide.

Both sides reiterated the strong commitment of the two organizations to address the protracted refugee issue in the Muslim World.

The main objective of the joint Committee’s discussion is to identify main areas of cooperation,and to work out a Plan of Action to implement the Ashgabat Declaration under the framework of the OIC-UNHCR Cooperation Agreement signed between the two organisations in 1988, according to an OIC statement.

This two days’ meeting comes as follow-up of the High-level meeting held between the OIC Secretary General Iyad Ameen Madani and the High Commissioner for refugees, Antonio Guterres, on 9 September 2014 at the OIC headquarters in Jeddah.

I began thinking about this question (how tight is the UNHCR with the OIC?) when I wrote my previous post about the ‘unaccompanied Muslim alien children’ spreading out around the world.

‘Unaccompanied alien children’ appearing all over the world; is the UN driving the scheme?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 22, 2014

Well, you can bet that Obama*** sure had a role in starting (if not planning!) the worldwide stampede by his complete inability to control the situation on the US border.   Today we have stories from France and from Indonesia about the “children” (mostly teenaged boys) on the move.  At an earlier time in history, teenaged boys would simply be considered invaders.

And, remember it was the ‘unaccompanied minors’ which generated the tension in that Roman neighborhood just a few days ago.

Antonio Guterres, the Socialist UN High Commissioner for Refugees: We must protect the “vulnerable” children. (That is one of their favorite words, btw) (REUTERS/Denis Balibouse)

In France:

From Aljazeera (the children are blaming the mean old UK).  There are a couple of good comments worth reading.

I have been to lots of refugee camps in the past: Gaza [which is entirely one]; the Iraq-Jordan border during the 2003 war; Russian republics neighbouring Chechnya. But I have never before found people in desperate need of someone’s help living in a ditch between two farmers’ fields, close to a very pleasant market town in northern France.

We, like much of the world’s media, have been countless times to Calais, to the tented camps strung out near the port, where people fleeing conflicts from Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan, Syria and other places are all waiting interminably. Their dream, many of them say, is to go to the UK, because they have a perception that it is welcoming to asylum seekers.

The other day an excellent organisation called Doctors of the World contacted us to say there was a new development: that because Calais was full up, people were being forced backwards, many kilometres south, away from the port and into open countryside.

So we went to have a look, and sure enough, near the village of Tatinghem, there was indeed a long ditch.

Inside it was a group of young Syrian boys – the youngest said he was 12 – who were all by themselves. Parents dead, the boys – trafficked through Turkey and Italy – had wound up in Calais but were forced to back up kilometres down the road. [So where did the boys get the thousands of dollars needed to hire human traffickers?  George Soros and his ilk? The OIC?  Don’t the dumb reporters ever ask that question?—ed]

They did not have their papers or virtually any food. They certainly were not going home, but they could not go forward towards the UK either, since they had no money.

There is a discussion you should read about how those anti-immigrant Brits can’t distinguish between illegal aliens and asylum seekers which is an important concept for do-gooders to consider.

Warning to American do-gooders: as you push for more and more immigrants of all sorts, the general public is naturally going to be so sick of it that they really won’t care anymore who is legitimate and who isn’t.  I predict a serious backlash against immigrants and their enablers in the coming years as a result.

Be sure to see the comments, especially those where readers are wondering—so why isn’t the UN pressuring Saudi Arabia to take in Muslim refugees?  Good question!

In Indonesia:

There are 950 “minors” in detention there according to the annoyed UNHCR.  From Antara News:

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Currently, 950 children are housed in immigration detention centers across Indonesia, including more than 440 unaccompanied by their families, stated Antonio Guterres from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

However, the total capacity of the facilities is limited, Guterres noted in a written statement received here on Friday.

“The children who arrive in another country in search of international protection are extremely vulnerable and have specific needs. We should treat them first and foremost as children, not as illegal immigrants”, Guterres remarked.

Will Church World Service bring some of Indonesia’s “vulnerable children” to the US?

Don’t we have enough of our own?

Indonesia is a Muslim country, can’t they take care of the Muslim children?  Instead look who is here on your dime—Church World Service—one of our nine major resettlement contractors  The next thing you know we will be bringing the unaccompanied alien children from Indonesia to your home town.

With the support of the UN Refugee Agency and the Church World Service (CWS), the Indonesian government has set up two shelters as alternative accommodations for the children who arrive as unaccompanied refugees rather than placing them in a detention house.

UNHCR is putting the screws to Japan to take refugees, especially Syrian Muslims

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 20, 2014

They don’t actually say Syrian Muslims, but they never do!

This guilt-tripping pressure campaign on Japan has been going on for awhile.  Japan does take a handful of refugees, but you can imagine how it galls those one-worlders at the UN that Japan is holding out introducing the joys of multiculturalism in any big way.

In fact, Japan is one of the few places in the world attempting to save itself from cultural annihilation!

UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Antonio Guterres: The US has given an open-ended commitment to resettle Syrians. Why not Japan? http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/06/30/unhcr-says-us-has-pledged-open-ended-resettlement-numbers-for-syrians/

[See our previous Japan posts by clicking here]

From The Japan Times:

The ongoing conflicts in Syria and Iraq have produced more than 12 million refugees and internally displaced people. They are flooding across borders in the region, and some neighboring states have reached their limit. One-third of Lebanon’s population now comprises refugees.

Meanwhile, Japan, a signatory member of the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, recognized only six refugees in 2013. To this day, no Syrian has ever received such status.

During a visit to Tokyo last week, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres called on Japan to review its rigid refugee recognition system.

“The numbers are quite low. . . . I think there is a reasonable presumption that the system is too rigid and too restrictive and it would be useful to make it more in line with what are the best practices in international refugee status determination,” Guterres told The Japan Times.

The Justice Ministry says 56 Syrians have made their way to Japan and filed for asylum, but to no avail. This is because, the ministry says, fleeing conflict is not a definition of a refugee as codified in the refugee convention. Instead, 36 of them have been given special residence permits on humanitarian grounds.

Without official refugee status, however, the Syrians’ rights are limited. And although it is not impossible, the system makes it very difficult for them to bring their families to Japan.

“If one comes from Syria, there is a high level of presumption that that person is in need of protection in one way or another,” Guterres said.  [There is also a high level of presumption they will be demanding Sunni Muslims—ed]

The Japanese government should help reunite them with their families, he added.

Please read onAs Japanese officials worry about fraudulent asylum seekers, Guterres, the former Socialist President of Portugal says, not to worry, we will help you screen them! 

The UN is screening refugees to America (Canada too) and have let in some individual evil characters, some terrorists and whole populations that have no intention of assimilating to western culture.

Then this:

The former prime minister of Portugal has made 12 trips to Japan during his two terms as high commissioner since 2005. This visit had a special objective: to raise awareness here about the 10 million stateless people around the world.  [This “statelessness” business is their latest scheme to encourage countries to take in the likes of the Rohingya Muslims of Bangladesh/Burma—ed]

I don’t see any mention in The Japan Times story that Japan is one of the most financially generous countries in the world to help refugees living in camps.

Watch for more on “stateless people.”  Hang tough Japan!

One more thing!  Check out this story (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’) about Maine that also mentions Japan, it seems that the supposed economic theory that a country (or state or city) needs to add population to increase its economy may be all a bunch of bull.  Hope to write more on this story later.

Liar Liar pants on fire! Fake Syrian boy viral video filmed on Malta

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 18, 2014

I’ve had this story in my queue for a few days, and see today that anger against the film maker, Norwegian Lars Klevberg and producer John Einar Hagen, has only increased over the last few days.  Leading the mob to tar and feather them (Europe’s Jonathan Grubers!) is Human Rights Watch.

Before I get to Klevberg’s apology here is the basic story I meant to post a few days ago. More red meat for all of our readers from Malta.   For other readers, I bet you haven’t heard so much about Malta in your lifetimes as you have in recent months here at RRW!

The cast and crew of ‘Syria Hero Boy’ high-fiving! “It was not a cynical way to get attention. They had honest motivations,” Ase Meyer, short film commissioner for the NFI.

The ends always justify the means for these Leftist ideologues!  From the BBC:

Millions of YouTube viewers have been captivated by the ‘Syrian hero boy’ who manages to rescue a little girl while under gunfire. Now a group of Norwegian filmmakers have told BBC Trending they are behind it. They say it was filmed on location in Malta this summer with the intention of being presented as real.

Lars Klevberg, a 34-year-old film director based in Oslo, wrote a script after watching news coverage of the conflict in Syria. He says he deliberately presented the film as reality in order to generate a discussion about children in conflict zones.

“If I could make a film and pretend it was real, people would share it and react with hope,” he said. “We shot it in Malta in May this year on a set that was used for other famous movies like Troy and Gladiator,” Klevberg said. “The little boy and girl are professional actors from Malta. The voices in the background are Syrian refugees living in Malta.

Were they comfortable making a film that potentially deceived millions of people? “I was not uncomfortable,” Klevberg said. “By publishing a clip that could appear to be authentic we hoped to take advantage of a tool that’s often used in war; make a video that claims to be real. We wanted to see if the film would get attention and spur debate, first and foremost about children and war. We also wanted to see how the media would respond to such a video.”

Read it all.

A lot is happening on that little dot in the Mediterranean Sea!

Now here comes the half-hearted apology and Human Rights Watch‘s anger.  From The Local:

The Norwegian filmmakers of ‘Syria Hero Boy’, a short movie that duped millions around the world into thinking it was shocking real-life footage, have apologized, it was reported on Sunday.

Many media commentators reacted angrily to the fact the mock-umentary style reportage belittles real journalism and war coverage. Charity organizations, such as Human Rights Watch, believe their work and intentions now faces unnecessary scrutiny by the negative consequences of the fake movie. [LOL! We always believed they needed scrutiny—ed]

Fred Abrahams of Human Right Watch said: “If their video achieved any short term purposes by directing the attention towards children in war, then it has become overshadowed by undermining people’s trust of professional reporting and consentious fact-based reporting of war crimes.”

The film’s producer John Einar Hagen said to AFP: “We stand by our good intentions, but we are also sorry if this is creating anger and if it makes documentation and reporting from war zones any more difficult.”

The video’s scriptwriter and director, Lars Klevberg, admitted on Saturday he deliberately made the mockumentary to generate debate about children in conflict zones.

See our entire archive on Malta by clicking here.  It is of great interest to us since the US State Department has (since the Bush Administration) turned Malta’s mostly Muslim illegal aliens into “refugees” bound for America.

US Bishops’ lobbyist threatens White House with ‘fence jumpers’ if Obama doesn’t act on executive amnesty

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 17, 2014

Of course, Kevin Appleby says he is speaking “politically” when quoted by the New York Times last week here:

Many pro-immigration groups and advocates — as well as the Hispanic voters who could be crucial for Democrats’ hopes of winning the White House in 2016 — are expecting bold action, having grown increasingly frustrated after watching a sweeping bipartisan immigration bill fall prey to a gridlocked Congress last year.

“This is his last chance to make good on his promise to fix the system,” said Kevin Appleby, the director of migration policy at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. “If he delays again, the immigration activists would — just politically speaking — jump the White House fence.”

Money! Money! Money!

For new readers (and everybody) always keep in the back of your mind that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops migration fund is almost completely–98%–funded by federal grants and contracts.  They will benefit financially from an amnesty as they will be tasked with getting the “new Americans” signed up for all their social services.  You probably pay Appleby’s salary!

Also, I think the Bishops were actually promoting the rush on the border when they traveled to Central America in late 2013 and Appleby authored their report on the coming border surge.  Could they predict the surge of “children” because they helped create it?

Don’t forget to call your Representative and US Senators today to demand they oppose Obama’s Executive Amnesty!

We are up against BIG-money “religious” groups operating on your dime!

The Asylumist blog takes a whack at Wyomingites opposed to refugee program; perpetuates the big lie

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 17, 2014

I wonder what blogger and immigration lawyer Jason Dzubow thinks of the Somali scheme (surely encouraged by Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains who resettled thousands of Somalis to CO to work in meatpacking) for “refugees” to high-tail-it to Wyoming to pick up subsidized housing vouchers to take back to Colorado (our top post for two weeks now! see also here) and thus rip-off the needy people of Wyoming.

We missed this blog post by Dzubow ten days ago (I’m not a regular visitor).  But, this morning when I wanted to see what he has to say about the “unaccompanied alien children” issue, I saw this post, entitled: Wyoming, the “Equality State,” Is Anything But.

Washington, DC Immigration lawyer and blogger Jason Dzubow. http://www.lawmavens.com/html/jason_dzubow.html

Dzubow:

There is only one state in the Union without a refugee resettlement program–Wyoming. Late last year, the state’s Republican governor, Matt Mead, took some tepid steps toward establishing a public-private partnership to help resettle refugees in the Equality State. Predictably, those efforts were met by fierce resistance, both from inside and outside the state.

He credits Congolese refugee Bertine Bahige with getting the campaign going to bring refugees to Wyoming.  Truthfully Bahige doesn’t have that much power, Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains located in Colorado was already casting around for fresh territory as Colorado is in refugee overload. (Reportedly an Idaho office was looking for fresh turf as well.)

A former refugee, and now a Wyoming resident and high school math teacher, Bertine Bahige, began a campaign to change the situation and encourage Wyoming to join the rest of the country and establish a refugee resettlement program. As a result of his efforts, in September 2013, the Governor made some preliminary inquiries with HHS about establishing a resettlement program.

[….]

But once word got out that Wyoming was considering thinking about possibly creating a resettlement program, hundreds of people called the Governor’s office to express opposition to the plan. In response, a spokesman for the Governor issued a statement, “Wyoming is not setting up a refugee camp…. This is still very preliminary.”   [As I have said before, this comment about a “refugee camp” is meant to make the opponents look stupid—it is the Jonathan Gruber (voters are dumb) strategy being played out by elitists including this Republican governor.—ed]

Next, Dzubow suggests fear of fraud by the “religious charities” is of little significance.

Remember Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains wanted their efforts in Wyoming kept secret until they were further along in the process.   In my view, since Lutheran Family Services is almost completely funded with tax dollars it has forfeited the right to be called a “religious charity.”  It is a quasi-government agency and thus open to taxpayer scrutiny and accountability.  Here is Dzubow with his “religious charity” mumbo-jumbo:

Mr. Barnett is also concerned with fraud in the refugee system. Of course, fraud and costs are legitimate concerns, but so is protecting refugees, and to me, Mr. Barnett’s throw-the-refugee-baby-out-with-the-bathwater approach mischaracterizes and unfairly distorts the life-saving work of the religious charities.

Now here comes the BIG LIE!

In the final paragraph of Dzubow’s little lecture to Wyomingites, he says a state can determine how many refugees it will take!  That is a myth.  In reality, once a city or state has a refugee office opened (by one of the contractors or subcontractors of the US State Department and the Dept. of Health and Human Services), it takes an enormous and sustained effort by state and local elected officials to stop the flow—and it isn’t ever stopped completely once the office has begun bringing in the refugees.  The best they can do is get a brief slowdown.

Here is what happens:  The resettlement contractor brings in the original “seed community” (their term) and then they proceed to bring in the family members and then use a guilt-trip on those who say—it is too many! we can’t afford more!—suggesting that the complaining citizens of the city/state are mean-spirited, “unwelcoming,” greedy, racist boobs.

The federal Office of Refugee Resettlement might even call in the dogs (contractor ‘Welcoming America’) to calm the pocket of resistance.”

Here is Dzubow’s final little lecturing guilt-trip (including the big lie) to Wyoming.  Blah! blah! blah!

In some ways, though, this is all a tempest in a tea pot. I doubt Wyoming would ever accept more than a handful of refugees (although it is a large state, it has a small population), and so in practical terms it wouldn’t mean much one way or the other. However, in symbolic terms, I think it is important. The United States has committed to protect a certain number of refugees each year. This commitment reflects our values as a nation and our position as the leader of the Free World. In fulfilling our commitment, it would be nice to see all 50 states doing their share. So come on Wyoming, we’re all waiting for you to join us. I think you will be glad you did.

On Friday, Veep Biden announced expansion of refugee program for the “children”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 17, 2014

Gotcha! Joe Biden along with Ted Kennedy created the Refugee Resettlement Program in 1979 (Carter signed it into law in 1980), but you can count on one hand (sometimes two) the number of refugees resettled in Biden’s home state of Delaware.

I saw the news, as many of you did, and just didn’t get around to posting it (also figured most of our readers saw it anyway), but just to keep our historical record up-to-date, here is what Breitbart said about the latest Obama Central American invasion plan.

Why did Obama send Biden out to do the dirty work?  To continue to diminish any chance Biden has of running for the Presidency?  The rumor is that Obama doesn’t want Hillary or Joe to follow him.

Breitbart (emphasis is mine):

On Friday, Vice President Joe Biden promised that the White House would allow an expansion of the United States’ refugee program to offer refugee status to children and young adults from Central America. He made the announcement in a speech at the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington, D.C. This announcement comes on the heels of President Obama’s vow to pass additional sweeping immigration reforms by executive order before the end of the year, a move strongly opposed by Republicans in Congress.

Previous U.S. immigration policy included a program that allowed up to 4,000 people a year from Cuba and Columbia to apply for refugee status. The new policy, as described by Biden, would expand that program to people under age 21 from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras who already have a parent in the U.S. legally, to allow them to come and join their parents.

“It provides those seeking asylum a ‘right way’ to come to our country, as opposed to crossing the border illegally,” said Biden about the new policy. “The program will provide a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children make — and some children don’t ever arrive, don’t ever make.”

The program would begin in December, and according to a statement by the State Department, applications would be initiated in the U.S. by the parent who was legally here. If a second parent still remained with the child in the home country and was legally married to the parent in the U.S., the second parent could also be added to the application.

More at Breitbart, here.

One parent has to be here legally?

This business about the parent filing the application having to be already legally in the US doesn’t make sense.  That parent, if a citizen or legal permanent resident, could have already applied to bring a minor child to the US.

Are they going to DNA test the “children” and the “parent” to be sure the parent is really the parent? 

Remember the African scam that shut down family reunification for Somalis in 2008.  Tens of thousands of so-called family members were not related at all and we admitted them for decades before discovering the fraud.

And, here is something else I want to know.  If the “legal” parent is legal through merely the Temporary Protected Status program, which is how tens of thousands of Central Americans get to stay and work in the US, will those parents be permitted to bring in their children as “refugees?”  Those kids then would be on a fast track to citizenship while their parents are not (unless Obama gives the parents amnesty).

And, btw, see our fact sheet for all of the welfare goodies legitimate refugees get from you.

What a tangled mess Obama has created in our immigration system!  Or, was that the plan all along?

Will our voices be drowned by big ‘leftist’ money behind Obama and no-borders movement?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 15, 2014

And, special feature:  The Commies at Casa de Maryland are at it again too!

When you read this New York Times article you can pat yourselves on the back for holding off the no-borders leftists for as long as we have with mostly grassroots power and no money.

But, don’t despair!  We can do it again!

George Soros and Hillary. Soros funded “evangelicals” for open borders. http://www.examiner.com/article/soros-funded-evangelical-groups-pressure-congress-for-immigration-reform

The New York Times yesterday gives us a catalog of the Leftwing big bucks flowing into supposed do-gooder pro-immigrant lobbying groups.   And, this doesn’t even include the money coming from big international corporations, like BIG MEAT, looking for cheap laborers.

Who gets screwed (sorry for the language, but how else can you say it)?  Middle and lower class Americans who want to work and love America as it is!

They aren’t just fishing for Democrat voters, they are working for the advancement of a socialist/communist borderless world where people like George Soros, and now his offspring, will control what happens throughout the world to your detriment and their financial advantage. (Of course Soros and his ilk think they can control the Islamists and their migration agenda.)

The pro-open borders/no borders do-gooders (and frankly some of the immigrants themselves) are only pawns.

From the NYT (hat tip: Judy).  We pushed them back in 2007, we can do it again! (Emphasis is mine)

When President Obama announces major changes to the nation’s immigration enforcement system as early as next week, his decision will partly be a result of a yearslong campaign of pressure by immigrant rights groups, which have grown from a cluster of lobbying organizations into a national force.

A vital part of that expansion has involved money: major donations from some of the nation’s wealthiest liberal foundations, including the Ford Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Open Society Foundations of the financier George Soros, and the Atlantic Philanthropies. Over the past decade those donors have invested more than $300 million in immigrant organizations, including many fighting for a pathway to citizenship for immigrants here illegally.

The philanthropies helped the groups rebound after setbacks and financed the infrastructure of a network in constant motion, with marches, rallies, vigils, fasts, bus tours and voter drives. The donors maintained their support as the immigration issue became fiercely partisan on Capitol Hill and the activists intensified their protests, engaging in civil disobedience and brash confrontations with lawmakers and the police.

The donors’ strategy arose in 2007, as immigrant groups nursed wounds from a rout after a bill pushed by President George W. Bush failed in Congress.

Mr. Stein, this is bigger than the Democrat party!  We have been watching the same strategies unfold in our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series.  Did you know they have the ‘unaccompanied minors’ invasion happening there too (see next post this morning).

“The whole apparatus has become the handmaiden of the Democratic Party,” said Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, which opposes legalization for unauthorized immigrants. “These foundations fund activist organizations designed to create ethnic identity enclaves and politically control them for partisan purposes.”

Speaking of ethnic enclaves, predictably here comes Casa de Maryland.  Be sure to read all about the Commies at CASA, here. (LOL! We have to get over our self-censorship and call a Communist a Communist!).

…. now that the White House has confirmed that Mr. Obama plans measures that could shield as many as five million immigrants from deportation, the advocates are mobilized and pushing him to act as broadly as his powers allow.

Last week, two days after the president held a news conference in the wake of the midterm elections, vowing to take executive action on immigration, Gustavo Torres, the executive director of CASA de Maryland and a coalition leader, was protesting once again in front of the White House.

“We expect the president to be big and bold,” he said. “This is his opportunity to make sure we are going to remember him as the president who made a difference for Latino and immigrant communities.”

International Rescue Committee wants Obama ceiling raised on FY15 refugees to accommodate Syrians

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 13, 2014

Recently we told you that another US refugee resettlement contractor***, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, was petitioning to pressure the Obama Administration to raise this year’s refugee ceiling from 70,000 to 100,000, but now we see that the IRC is pushing for a change as well.

Where did we get that information?  From a new report just released by the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in conjunction with the Norwegian Refugee Council.

Former British Foreign Secretary David Miliband (left) heads the IRC and was feted by Bill Clinton, George Soros, Samantha Power and Madeleine Albright in NYC last December. http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2013/12/09/new-york-times-slobbers-over-david-milibands-arrival-in-nyc-to-lead-refugee-contractor/

We saw the news here at Islamic Invitation Turkey in an article entitled: ‘US, EU criticized for accepting small numbers of Syria refugees.’

Two international refugee organizations have criticized the US and European states for admitting only a tiny number of the people displaced by the war in Syria.

In a report released on Wednesday, the International Rescue Committee and the Norwegian Refugee Council said the plight of the displaced Syrian people has reached “a new level of hopelessness.”

The report said that the US and European countries need “to do more, and quickly” in accepting Syrian refugees.

It said the US had accepted just 166 Syrian refugees by the end of September, while Britain a few hundred. France has said it will accept just 500 displaced Syrian people.

This is while international refugee organizations have called on developed countries to accept at least five percent of Syria’s refugees.  [That amounts to about 150,000 Syrians they would like to see brought to the West.—ed]

So here is what the report says about the US beginning on page 16.  After stating that the US has 4,000 Syrians in the pipeline:

“….it is critical that the overall global refugee admissions ceiling in the US be raised beyond the current level of 70,000 persons.”

Interesting as well, is that the IRC lists other ways to legally bring in more Syrians:

~ Student visas

~ Family reunification

~ Private sponsorship

~ Work visas

It is so very important for you to express your concern to your Representatives and Senators in Washington about throwing open our doors to Syrian Muslims.

Update November 14th:  More here on Miliband stumping for more resettlement at The Guardian.

***Nine major US refugee contractors are being paid by the head to resettle refugees:
