Obama creates new “refugee” program for Central American kids

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 1, 2014

White House double whammy! First the Syrians then the “children.”

In announcing hisPresidential Determination’ yesterday for Fiscal Year 2015 refugee admissions, the Administration set up a new and separate program to accommodate tens of thousands of mostly Central American teenagers waiting in Guatemala, El Salvador or Honduras for their chance to get into the US.

Thanks to all who sent this story or a version of it.

Pope tells US to help the “children.” Obama obliges. Photo: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-28303720

As you read this ABC News account, remember that expanding the definition of “refugee” has in my view been what the recent Southern border invasion was all about.

And keep in mind there are several hundred thousand Central Americans living in the US legally under Temporary Protected Status*** who presumably could, under Obama’s new plan, ask to have minor relatives declared “refugees” in order to join them in America.

ABC News:

The Obama administration is initiating a program to give refugee status to some young people from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in response to the influx of unaccompanied minors arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Under the program, immigrants from those countries who are lawfully in the United States will be able to request that child relatives still in those three countries be resettled in the United States as refugees. The program would establish in-country processing to screen the young people to determine if they qualify to join relatives in the U.S.

In a memorandum to the State Department Tuesday, President Barack Obama allocated 4,000 slots for refugees from Latin America and the Caribbean for next year. The number is a fraction of the number of children who have already crossed the border into the United States and are awaiting deportation proceedings.

The program would not provide a path for minors to join relatives illegally in the United States, and would not apply to minors who have entered the country illegally.  [We don't even know who is illegally in the US, so how will those illegals be identified?---ed]

Instead, it aims to set up an orderly alternative for dealing with young people who otherwise might embark on a dangerous journey to join their families in the United States.

The program is not likely to stop other minors or migrant families from seeking to cross the border. [Then why do it?---ed]

***TPS is perhaps the ultimate legal immigration scam because there is nothing temporary about it!

So where is Congress on all this? (Crickets?)

The next time you hear a dumb politician or a dumb friend say—“Legal immigration is good, but I don’t like illegal immigration”—I want you to pop them in the nose (gently of course) and tell them they don’t know what they are talking about!  Obama has just decreed that this is LEGAL immigration.

Human rights activists complain about stricter asylum rules…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 30, 2014

….but don’t get too excited about the possibility that the Obama Administration is seeing the light because as we learned last week, thousands of illegals who entered the country this past summer aren’t even showing up for court!

Thousands have just disappeared into the woodwork of America presumably planning to wait it out until Obama and Congress give them amnesty!

From the Wall Street Journal (hat tip Richard):

Watch Eleanor Acer of Human Rights First testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Asylum fraud last February. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mxDxtHAszU

Immigrants who enter the country illegally are becoming less likely to be deemed eligible for asylum, as federal authorities tighten standards amid an increase in Central American migrants this year.

As an initial step to request asylum, apprehended migrants who say they are scared to go back to their home country are screened to determine if they have “credible fear” of persecution or torture. In July, the most recent month available, 63% of those who claimed they were afraid to return were found to have met that criterion, down from 83% six months earlier, according to a report released to immigrant-rights groups by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The decline comes after the agency’s Asylum Division toughened the criteria its officers use during the interviews. The goal of the new guidelines, according to an agency official, is to ensure that immigrants with little to no chance of obtaining asylum in immigration court are quickly sent home.

Immigrant advocates say the tougher screening criteria are preventing many immigrants from being able to make a case for asylum before a judge.

“It’s turning away people who may very well have been entitled to asylum protection,” said Eleanor Acer, refugee protection director at Human Rights First, a New York-based nonprofit group.

The Asylum Division is one of many federal agencies that have been taxed by an influx of tens of thousands of immigrants who have illegally entered the country from Central America this year, many saying they were seeking refuge from gang violence and poverty. From October to June, the Asylum Division received 36,334 credible-fear claims from immigrants, surpassing the 36,035 in the 12 months of fiscal 2013, data from the office shows. Immigrants from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras accounted for the majority of the claims.

The office is responsible for screening migrants apprehended at the border, asking, for example, whether they are being persecuted because they belong to a specific social group or feel threatened because of their race or religion. If their claims are credible, the immigrants are referred to immigration court, where a judge ultimately decides whether they qualify for asylum or other protection. Immigrants who go through that process, which can take years, are sometimes released in the U.S. until their cases are resolved.

Unaccompanied children arriving from Central America don’t go through the credible-fear process, as they are routed to the court system directly.

Now be sure to see Hot Air last week where we learned that 70% of the families ordered to appear for a hearing never showed up!

DHS secret revealed: Tens of thousands of illegals released during the border crisis didn’t show up for their immigration hearings

Big smooch from Eleanor to Grover!

About the photo and Acer’s testimony to Congress:  I had to laugh when I watched the clip because she praises and enters into the record the Grover Norquist/Suhail Khan Republicans-want-more-refugees letter which we reported here.

International Rescue Committee study: refugees like cash better than services

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 29, 2014

“Mrs Clinton, (then) 62, spoke last year of her unlikely crush on Mr Miliband, 44.” Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1260660/Move-Miliband-Hillary-Clinton-special-relationship-new-man.html#ixzz3EiTH4IZZ

They did not study refugees resettled in the US, but I’ll bet they would opt for cold hard cash over stuff too.

Former British Foreign Secretary David Miliband, the CEO of one of our top nine resettlement contractors, the International Rescue Committee, who himself likes cash (and is paid nearly a half million dollars as CEO if the IRC), co-authored this piece that reveals refugees like money! 

The study apparently concluded that giving refugees money didn’t encourage alcohol consumption, drug use, or smoking (duh! most are Muslims who don’t have those infidel vices anyway).

The study also found that giving them cash was not a dis-incentive to work.  Really?

Are “humanitarian” bucks going to fund Jihadists?

They don’t drink or smoke it up but I wondered if they might give some of their cold hard cash to fund more terrorist activity.  I bet researchers at Yale didn’t ask that question!

Here is the article, read it yourself since I am out of time and energy right now!

I also wondered if the “refugees” might prefer cash to being resettled in your home town, but alas I assume they didn’t ask that question either.

Come to think of it, we might be able to save ourselves some serious money if we paid them to stay right where they are!

Liberians can thank Ebola (and Senator Jack Reed) for extended stay in the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 29, 2014

Temporary Protected Status for Liberians should have ended years ago, but now, thanks to Ebola, they will get a reprieve and stay for what will amount to another decade or forever.

I wasn’t going to post this story (I mentioned the possibility of the Ebola excuse, here already) until several readers sent it to me and I had some time to read some of the comments.  People are generally becoming more educated (and disgusted) by these LEGAL immigration programs and loopholes.

Rhode Island Democrat Senator Jack Reed is the champion of Liberians in America. As commenter Pete F. suggests below, find his home address and pass it out to Liberians telling them that is where they can be housed and fed.

From Yahoo News:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Liberian immigrants living in the United States without a visa won’t be sent back to the epicenter of Ebola crisis in West Africa for at least another two years, the Obama administration said Friday.

President Barack Obama signed a memo extending a legal protection called “deferred enforced departure” that continues a protection from deportation that has been in place for more than a decade.

The government first granted Liberians temporary protective status during that country’s bloody civil war, which started in 1991 and ended in 2003.

That original protection expired in October 2007. President George W. Bush then approved deferred enforced departure for the community.

Senator Jack Reed of Rhode Island continues to be the champion of Liberian migrants in America. We have written several posts on Senator Reed and Liberians over the years, here.

Comments that caught my eye—but there are about 90 more….

Here is one from Kolchak:

Sweet! This provides a huge incentive for Liberians to escape their country, get smuggled into the US and then claim they’ve been here for long enough to avoid being deported if they get caught. Paid ‘witnesses’ will vouch for them.

We’d better just hope none of them are sick.

Oh, I forgot to mention, most of them will be allowed to stay indefinitely. (This will be done by executive order late on a Friday afternoon when nobody is paying attention.) Those who become citizens will be reminded the Obama saved their lives and thus they are to be Democratic voters for life.  [I don't think they have to wait to become citizens to vote, I bet they are already voting!---ed]

Patti:

Obama won’t send Liberians back for fear they might catch Ebola, but he’ll send 3,000 American soldiers there to possibly catch Ebola. How ’bout we send the Liberians back with some carpentry tools and blueprints to build their own damn treatment centers!

Pete F:

What we should do is get the addresses of every single Liberal that supports Amnesty and open borders. Give those addresses to every single Illegal that comes into our country, and tell them that these people will take you in, house you, feed you, cloth you, provide you with healthcare, etc.

This should also apply to Limousine Liberals such as Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Lady gaga, Bill Mayher, Matt Damon, and Micheal Moore.

Someone should write a blog just on Temporary Protected Status, the Diversity Visa Lottery and those Investor Visa programs that allow all the Middle Easterners in here to buy convenience stores—-all LEGAL immigration programs in need of being exposed!

Here are all of our posts on TPS.  Syrians have that special refugee status now too!

Michigan writer: we should take all the Syrians and Iraqis we can get!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 29, 2014

I suspect this opinion writer () from Ypsilanti, Michigan writing in The Eastern Echo is connected in some way to federal resettlement contractor US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, but there is no mention of his affiliation and we are thus expected to believe he is just a member of John Q. Public.

Michigan is already in the top five states for Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) immigrant population. http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/02/26/what-is-the-population-of-middle-eastern-and-north-african-immigrants-in-your-state/

From The Eastern Echo (emphasis is mine):

Michigan is the best candidate to accept Iraqi and Syrian refugees, not because of its railroads and factories, forests and rivers, or even because of its system of government, but because of Michiganders themselves. Of the many chapters of the American immigration success story, two of its finest – Polish immigration in the early 20th Century and Lebanese immigration half a century later – were written in Michigan. Michigan may yet write a third.

The situation is this: Iraqis and Syrians are fleeing in the tens of thousands, and Michigan is in need of people. Michigan accepting these refugees would not only be generous but practical.

Mr. Peters then goes on with a lot of the mumbo-jumbo about Polish and Italian immigrants as if they are the same as Middle Eastern Muslims in their world view.  Then he talks about the Christian Middle Easterners as if that is all they will get from Iraq and Syria.  In fact, they will get mostly Muslim refugees from Syria.

The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), a non-profit refugee aid organization, reported that of the more than 120,000 Chaldeans (Iraqi Christians) who made their way to Detroit almost half a century ago, more than half of them are now business-owners, now helping new Iraqi refugees get on their feet in their new state.

Peters:  Michigan ought to “welcome” hundreds of thousands!

The crisis in Iraq and Syria is known well enough. Hundreds of thousands are fleeing. And Michigan, a state that has welcomed Middle Eastern refugees before, ought to welcome these hundreds of thousands who are feeling [fleeing?--ed] the region today, and encourage one generation of Middle Eastern Michiganders in preparing the next.

Michiganders need to bombard The Eastern Echo with another point of view!

Michigan is this year in the top five resettlement states, see here.  A few years ago the US State Department, fearing Michigan was in overload, slowed the flow (Detroit News 2008) but it looks like that limited moratorium is off now!

New UNHCR report on asylum: US is second most desirable nation in the world for asylum seekers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 28, 2014

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees has released his ‘mid-year’ report and it’s no surprise asylum claims are up world-wide.

For clarification, asylum seekers are people who get into another country on their own and then apply for asylum in hopes of being declared legitimate refugees a designation which brings with it access to social services and usually puts them on track for citizenship in their new country.   The Tsarnaev family had been granted asylum and thus were called political refugees.  The no-borders agitators are trying to make the case that the ‘Unaccompanied alien children’ fit this category as well.

A few countries have temporary asylum.  In the US if you are granted asylum you are in!

UNHCR Antonio Guterres, former President of the Socialist International, said that the US has pledged “open-ended” numbers for Syrian refugee resettlement! http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/06/30/unhcr-says-us-has-pledged-open-ended-resettlement-numbers-for-syrians/

The other track for potential refugees is to be selected by the UN abroad and then to be assigned to a resettlement country—most are assigned to the US!

From the Malta Independent:

A UNHCR report released today shows that the number of people seeking refugee status in industrialized countries continued to climb in the first half of 2014, driven by the wars in Syria and Iraq as well as conflict and instability in Afghanistan, Eritrea and elsewhere.

[....]

We are clearly into an era of growing conflict,” said UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres. “The global humanitarian system is already in great difficulty. The international community needs to prepare their populations for the reality that in the absence of solutions to conflict more and more people are going to need refuge and care in the coming months and years. Unfortunately, it is not clear that the resources and the access to asylum will be available to help them.”

Despite the net overall increase in new claims shown in the report, more than two thirds of these were in just six countries – Germany, the United States, France, Sweden, Turkey and Italy.

Central Europe, in particular Hungary and Poland, as well as Australia saw declines in the numbers of people asking to be accepted as refugees.   [The Abbott government is clearly having success in pushing back the illegal alien boats!---ed]

Go here for the whole report.  The UN is happy to help you replace your population!

Catholic Charities and Methodists hold community luncheon to persuade folks that refugees are not just “plopped” in PA

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 28, 2014

They must be spreading the refugees and ‘Unaccompanied alien children’ out from Harrisburg and are getting a little blow-back or they wouldn’t have needed a get-their-minds-right luncheon for the community in Mechanicsburg (8 miles west of Harrisburg, PA an overloaded resettlement city).

By the way, this is standard operating procedure.  Just like Minneapolis and the bedroom community of Eden Prairie we wrote about yesterday.  The US State Department and its refugee contractors overload a city, tensions build and then have to spread new refugees out to the surrounding towns and cities because they want to keep families and ethnic groups linked up in a 100 mile radius of the original “seed community.”  Mechanicsburg!  See your future in Eden Prairie!

Luncheon to make sure a ‘pocket of resistance’ isn’t growing in PA?

From The Sentinel:

The word refugee became a hot potato topic in recent months as the United Nations and other organizations called on the United States to grant the refugee status to thousands of unaccompanied immigrant children who have crossed the southern border while fleeing violence and crime in Central America. The United Methodist Home for Children in Lower Allen Township announced in July it was planning to provide shelter for some of these children.

Reverend Robert Visscher Director of the Methodist Mission Central: “They aren’t just plopped here randomly.” Really! Photo: http://www.missioncentral.org/staff.php

Given the flurry of discussion, Catholic Charities and Mechanicsburg-based Mission Central provided a community educational luncheon Thursday to discuss the similarities and differences between the unaccompanied children and other refugees, clear up misconceptions about immigrants, and give suggestions for how the public can help care for refugees in the area.

Catholic Charities again stretching that definition of the word “refugee.”  In my view that is what this whole UAC push is about.  They want the “children” to seek asylum and be recognized as full-blown asylees (which means refugee) so they can be hooked up with their social services (normal legal immigrants have to wait five years for welfare) and be on the fast track to US citizenship.

Catholic Charities does not currently provide shelter for unaccompanied Central American children — although they have requested grant funds to do so in the future — but the organization currently helps immigrants from countries like Bhutan, Nepal, Somalia and Burma, said Sara Beck, ESL services manager.

To be a refugee, a person has to be fleeing from a well-founded fear of persecution or violence in their home countries — and the situation many of the Central American children are facing “sounds a lot like a refugee,” Beck said.  [Beck is quoted as an authority, but if its the same Sara Beck I found, she is a recent college student, probably on loan from AmeriCorps---ed]

Beck and Visscher said fears of immigrants bringing disease or security concerns to the United States should be relieved by a proper understanding of the screening process both the unaccompanied children and refugees undergo.

“These people aren’t just plopped here randomly — there’s a whole process to this,” Visscher said.

We have dozens of cases where in fact they were just “plopped” down and were later found to have some serious crime, terrorism, or health issues and they were “plopped” down without the community having been fully informed of what was being done to their community in the name of Christian (government-funded) “charity.”

And remember, Pennsylvania is in the top ten resettlement states in the US, here Click here for our Pennsylvania archive.

Update:  Reader Joanne just sent this detailed report from the Pennsylvania Health Department about refugees and their medical issues in PA.  You can even see how many positive TB cases went to your counties.

1980’s Sanctuary Movement being renewed in 2014!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 26, 2014

A large number of Central Americans in the US now entered illegally in the 1980’s thanks to the “help” of churches throughout the US where church members literally sneaked them across the border and distributed them throughout America.

In Maryland, for example, the illegal alien advocacy group—CASA de Maryland—supported today by the Governor and other Democrat elected officials with your tax dollars sprang from the original Communist-leaning Sanctuary Movement of the ’80’s.

Excellent read on what they where up to in the first Sanctuary Movement (but from the perspective of an author who condoned it). Why don’t we have many (any?) books from those who oppose?

By the way, some of those tens of thousands of Central Americans who got in here through Sanctuary ultimately were rewarded with that sham of a LEGAL immigration program—Temporary Protected Status—and are now the ‘family member’ sponsors of the Unaccompanied Alien Children (it all ties together!).

Some churches of the ‘religious Left’ are calling for a Sanctuary 2014 movement!

At least one is a repeat offender since it was a leading church of the underground railroad that shipped illegals throughout America over three decades ago.

There are several stories on the new movement involving churches in mostly Arizona and Chicago (Catholics in the 1980s) so far, but I would not be surprised to learn that some of the 24 churches offering “sanctuary” to illegal aliens are spread across America and may include the Presbyterian Church in Takoma Park, Maryland—CASA de Maryland’s original home.

See one of our posts on the original Sanctuary Movement, here.  If you really want to know more about the 1980’s Sanctuary Movement, see my many posts at Potomac Tea Party Report by clicking here.

And, here is one of several stories this week, this one at Arizona Central:

It started with a church in Tucson offering sanctuary to undocumented immigrants facing deportation.

But now dozens of faith communities across the country are inviting immigrants in the U.S. illegally to seek protection from deportation inside their walls.

They are part of a budding resurgence of the 1980s sanctuary movement, when hundreds of churches offered protection to refugees fleeing civil war in Central America.

This time around, church leaders say, they are responding to the federal government’s failure to reform the nation’s broken immigration system and counter record levels of deportations under President Barack Obama’s administration.

“Our elected leaders have failed to act,” said Alison Harrington, pastor at Southside Presbyterian Church in Tucson, which pioneered the 1980s sanctuary movement and earlier this year began taking in undocumented immigrants facing deportation.

Reader Brad alerted us to the Washington Times report from Wednesday.  And here is another at Breitbart.

Need your population replaced? The UN will be happy to assist

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 26, 2014

As the UN General Assembly continues to disrupt New York City, a reader sent us this old (over a decade old) press announcement from the United Nations alerting certain countries that their people were getting old and not having enough kids so it was time to start moving in the replacement population.   No mention here, of course, about the quality and character of the replacement people (replacement workers for big companies?).

UN: We are all here to help make it possible—to help you replace your old people with our poor people!

Readers, remember that the UN chooses most of our (US) refugee populations.  Yes, for some political reason from time to time, the US State Department uses the refugee program for some other foreign policy purpose, but the majority of those arriving now are ones the UN has identified.

Yesterday, we learned that they are already pretty far along with the US, here.

Replacement Migration:
Is It a Solution to Declining and Ageing Populations?

United Nations projections indicate that over the next 50 years, the populations of virtually all countries of Europe as well as Japan will face population decline and population ageing. The new challenges of declining and ageing populations will require comprehensive reassessments of many established policies and programmes, including those relating to international migration.

Focusing on these two striking and critical population trends, the report considers replacement migration for eight low-fertility countries (France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, United Kingdom and United States) and two regions (Europe and the European Union). Replacement migration refers to the international migration that a country would need to offset population decline and population ageing resulting from low fertility and mortality rates.

So, of course, the UN is busy, out of genuine concern for us, replacing our population!

The UN even has a whole population division working on this “problem.”

Some nagging from me!

This story reminds me that we need more bloggers willing to focus, focus, focus on some aspect of our immigration problem (other issues too!), not bloggers in need of running their mouths on myriad topics to satisfy news junkies all day long.

Basically, my dream blogging force would be research bloggers who would every day (or several times a week) report the news on the topic and dig into documents, reports etc.  Someone could write a whole blog just on this “work” of the United Nations!  Real investigative journalists are rare these days, so some of you reading this right now must become citizen journalists if we are ever going to save this great country.

The more of us there are, the less likely they can shut us up!

Georgia on my mind: refugee numbers up, foreign-born numbers up, and Catholic Bishops lecture

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 25, 2014

I already had two articles worth mentioning about Georgia and refugees before I saw this news from The Atlanta Journal Constitution this morning:

Georgia ranked eighth among states for the total number of refugees it received in the fiscal year ending in September at 2,710, according to a federal report released Tuesday.

Georgia Bishop HARTMAYER lectures, guilt-trips and urges Catholics to lobby for amnesty.

That is up 8 percent from the year before. But it is 810 fewer people than originally proposed by resettlement agencies.

The U.S. State Department confirmed earlier this year it had limited the number of refugees coming to Georgia, based partly on requests from Gov. Nathan Deal’s administration for sharp cuts. State officials have cited state and local taxpayer costs associated with taking in the refugees, school budget shortfalls and other concerns.

Deal has continued to push the Obama administration on the issue. In a letter he sent President Barack Obama in July, Deal complained Georgia has received a “disproportionate number of refugee placements over the past few years.”

Last month, the governor’s administration sided with Athens-Clarke County Mayor Nancy Denson in opposition to resettling 150 refugees there. The Democratic mayor complained resettlement officials had not reached out to enough people in her community early enough about the plans.

Local resettlement agencies are pushing back, saying refugees create a net gain for the state by working and paying taxes and attracting millions of dollars in federal aid money to Georgia.

[....]

The federal government provides refugees with funding that partially covers the cost of rent, furniture, food and clothing.

This last bit above confirms what I have been saying—not the working and paying taxes part (most don’t get paid enough to pay taxes!), but the part about millions of federal aid dollars following refugees It’s as if we are expected to believe that there is a money tree growing in Washington!

There is a major disconnect happening—those aid dollars from Washington come from taxpayers, including Georgia taxpayers—it is not free money!  And, there won’t be a net gain for the state when federal aid dollars arrive as refugees use more resources than they draw in from Washington.

Big whup if the feds help pay rent and get them some clothes and food stamps!  It is the cost of health services, education, and the criminal justice system that push states into the red with the immigrant population increase.  And, by the way, never mentioned is the unfairness of rent subsidized housing going to immigrants when poor and disabled Americans need that housing.

Then be sure to see this article from last week about the overall increase in the foreign-born population in Georgia.  Georgia immigrant population increase confirmed by CIS here too.

Georgia Catholic Bishops lecture!

The nerve of the Catholic Bishops of Georgia to lecture Georgians about Christian charity when the US Conference of Catholic Bishops refugee and immigration program is almost completely funded by US taxpayers (98% funded by you) and this screed by ARCHBISHOP WILTON D. GREGORY and BISHOP GREGORY J. HARTMAYER at The Georgia Bulletin never says one word about Caesar’s money which they depend on for their existence!

Please read their guilt-trip laced polemic here.  And, remember this!  It is not only ‘unaccompanied alien children’ and refugees that the Bishops are concerned about, they lobby for amnesty as well and admit it here.  Are they using your tax dollars for their lobbying campaign, that is what I would like to know!

We also urge Congress to enact comprehensive immigration reform legislation, which will help fix our broken immigration system.

We strongly encourage you to support these principles by contacting your U.S. senators and congress members through the Catholic bishops’ Justice for Immigrants website.

On the State level, we ask legislators and officials to support policies that enhance the dignity of all people who come to our state.

See our complete Georgia archive by clicking here.  See especially Athens, Georgia mayor attempting to put brakes on refugee resettlement (mentioned above).

Note that over a year ago, Georgia was identified (by the Office of Refugee Resettlement) at a meeting I attended in Lancaster, PA as a ‘pocket of resistance’ to refugee resettlement and was cited as a reason that the ORR hired Welcoming America (to get peoples’ minds right)!

Also, there is a grassroots group opposing more refugee resettlement in Georgia, click here, that you should know about.
