First Bhutanese refugee advocacy day on Capitol Hill; they would like Congress to help them get home

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 24, 2014

In 2007, just as RRW was getting off the ground, the Bush Administration said that the US would “welcome” 60,000 Bhutanese (mostly Hindu) here over 5 years (read one of many accounts, here).

We are now up to 80,000 of the Bhutanese (really Nepali people) who were booted out of Bhutan after living there for a generation or two.  Nepal didn’t want its ethnic people back, so they lived in UN-run camps on the edge of Nepal before Bush said, let them come (The contractors need ‘clients’ and we need more docile laborers anyway!  Bush didn’t exactly say that, but that is the reality).

Their arrival here was traumatic for many and news is plentiful about their hardships in the land whose streets are (NOT!) paved with gold.  Their high rate of suicide in the US has not gone unnoticed by health officials (here is one recent story on that subject).

Refugees as pawns!

When I saw this news, my first reaction was ho-hum now they want some special favors for their people, so I was surprised to see that they want the US to pressure Bhutan to let some of them return to Bhutan from the camps and to let some of those resettled here to return as well! 

This is not the first time we have seen “refugees” beg to go home after they learned the harsh reality of life in America.  (See a post from 2010 here about how we brought thousands of Kosovars here in 1999, paid resettlement contractors to get them ‘settled,’ and then airlifted them ‘home’ within a year).

There is no incentive to slow the flow!

In 1999, the contractors were in need of warm bodies (they are paid by the head to resettle refugees and it is the need for the continuous cash flow that keeps this whole scheme afloat)  and so they pressured the Clinton Administration to bring them some paying customers.  Frankly, I think this is the same thing that happened with the Bhutanese and I always wondered why the mighty US (and the bullies at the UN) couldn’t financially pressure Bhutan and Nepal to repatriate their people instead of undertaking a hugely expensive resettlement of an entire population and then scattering them across the US and destroying their culture.

From Business Standard:

For the first time in the US Congress, the Bhutanese American Advocacy Day has been celebrated.

There are around 80,000 Bhutanese refugees in the US.

Organised by the Hindu American Foundation (HAF) early this week on November 17, the first-of-its-kind event featured a congressional briefing along with meetings with the State Department and several House and Senate offices, the foundation said in a statement.

Life isn’t so good in America, we want to go home!

The Bhutanese delegation also asked the State Department and members of Congress to assist in applying multilateral diplomatic pressure on Bhutan to repatriate refugees remaining in the camps of Nepal as well as those resettled in other countries who long to return to their ancestral homeland.

Panelists sought to educate policy makers on the challenges endured by Bhutanese Hindus resettling here in the US, as well as the ongoing human rights concerns in Bhutan.

Bhutanese Hindu refugees living in major cities throughout the US are facing a number of challenges, including a high incidence of mental illness and suicide, trouble obtaining employment and difficulty in retaining their cultural and religious traditions.

Thanks to Obama, their difficulty in finding employment will only get harder as they compete with 5 million newly legalized aliens.

See our extensive archive on the Bhutanese, hereThe resettlement is now winding down just as the Syrians will become the next favored group.  At least the Bhutanese are not Muslims!

Liberal, KS meatpacking murder story exploding, why?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 23, 2014

As I mentioned yesterday, this story from Liberal, KS about the murder of a Somali refugee by an African American at the National Beef plant there is a month old.  Yet over the last two days it has taken off with readers apparently mostly on facebook.

Does anyone see any additional news on the story that might have set this post on fire?

‘Pungentpeppers’ reports that there was a settlement there on Friday in which National Beef agreed to pay compensation in a class action lawsuit, but it has no apparent connection to the murder or to the large number of Somali and other refugees employed in Liberal.

For new readers, we write about these meatpacking plants frequently because their need for cheap immigrant labor is one of the drivers of the refugee program.  Our so-called ‘religious’ resettlement contractors work closely with them in key states besides Kansas—Kentucky, Iowa, Nebraska, North Carolina, and Colorado all come to mind.   Type ‘meatpackers’ into our search function and learn more about how these plants are changing the face of rural America (here is just one post you must read).

And, by the way, Senator Jeff Sessions called out BIG MEAT as one of the chief pushers of the Gang of Eight Amnesty bill, here.

You might also search RRW for ‘Kansas’ as we have written extensively on how refugees are destabilizing communities there.

‘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.

Australia: No more sugar on the table for UNHCR ‘refugees’ in Indonesia!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 19, 2014

If only we had men like these leading America. Scott Morrison (left) and Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott (right).

Maybe some of our Australian readers are not perfectly happy with everything the Abbott government does, but we sure are loving them.

Can you imagine the sputtering and fuming going on at the United Nations over the latest comments by Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison.

Keep in mind as you read this that international refugee law says that asylum seekers are to ask for asylum in the first safe country they reach, thus the mostly Muslim ‘asylum’ seekers should ask for asylum in Indonesia (a Muslim country***).  But, of course, as we see in Europe every day, they are really ‘asylum’ shoppers (aka economic migrants) not truly persecuted people.

From the UK Daily Mail (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

(Emphasis is mine)

Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison Wednesday said he was “taking the sugar off the table” in announcing that Canberra was slamming the door on UN-registered asylum-seekers in Indonesia.

Morrison said that from July next year, asylum-seekers officially recognised by the United Nations refugee agency in Jakarta would no longer be eligible for resettlement in Australia.

The move, he said, was part of the government’s work to “strip people-smugglers of a product to sell to vulnerable men, women and children” and stop Indonesia being used as a transit lounge.
“We’re taking the sugar off the table. That’s what we’re doing,” he told ABC radio.

“We’re trying to stop people thinking that it’s OK to come into Indonesia and use that as a waiting ground to get to Australia.”

The giant northern neighbour is not a refugee generating country, but has become a key magnet for others seeking to reach Australia, often through treacherous boat journeys that have left hundreds dead.

Since the government came to power last year, its hardline immigration policy — to deny asylum-seekers arriving by boat resettlement in Australia and instead send them to camps in Papua New Guinea and the Pacific state of Nauru — has halted the flow.

The move to shut the door on even those registered with the UNHCR refugee agency in Indonesia is the next step, Morrison said.

“While nine of 10 months of 2014 have passed without a successful people-smuggling venture to Australia, we know smugglers continue to encourage asylum-seekers to travel illegally to Indonesia for the purpose of seeking resettlement in Australia,” he said.

I wonder how Obama felt in the presence of real men in Australia a few days ago?

By the way, if those unaccompanied alien children‘ who traveled through Mexico to the US border were legitimate asylum seekers they would have asked for asylum in Mexico!

See our entire archive on Australia, here.

*** Another element to consider is whether the Muslim government of Indonesia and the UNHCR are helping to advance the Hijra (Islamic migration) by attempting to send more Muslims to non-Muslim countries.

Pope frets over Rome anti-refugee riots: Couldn’t he see this coming on Lampedusa?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 18, 2014

He went to the besieged Italian island in 2013 and put on a great show of “welcome” to the mostly illegal aliens coming from Africa and the Middle East.

July 2013, Pope lectures on Lampedusa, chides the world for its indifference!

 

He said mass and lectured the world about indifference to our brothers and sisters, while the struggling elected officials of Lampedusa tried to tell anyone who would listen that they couldn’t manage the hordes anymore—the cost, the crime, all of it.

From the New York Times (entitled: ‘Pope offers mass on island beacon for refugees‘)

ROME — Pope Francis traveled on Monday to Lampedusa, the tiny Mediterranean island that has become a gateway to Europe for thousands of desperate asylum seekers and migrants, as well as an unknown number of others who have died during the perilous crossing from North Africa.

It was the pope’s first official trip outside Rome, and he used it to draw attention to a continuing humanitarian problem while chiding the world for its indifference.

“These brothers and sisters of ours were trying to leave difficult situations to find a little serenity and peace….

We wrote about his scolding here.

Now that Rome itself is overloaded with demanding third-worlders (mostly young Muslim men who came in through Lampedusa, by the way), and its citizens are rioting against the loss of their neighborhoods and their way of life, the Pope seems, what?  Surprised?  What did he expect!

Now, he says, we have a “social emergency!”

From Yahoo News:

Vatican City (AFP) – Pope Francis on Sunday described violent attacks on refugees in Rome as symptomatic of a “social emergency” that will only get worse if it is not addressed.

Addressing the crowds in St Peter’s Square after his weekly Angelus sermon, the pontiff urged authorities and church officials to work to calm tensions after several days of mob attacks on a holding centre for asylum speakers in a rundown neighbourhood of the Italian capital.

“In recent days in Rome there have been quite strong tensions between residents and immigrants,” the pontiff said, in a reference to the unrest in the Tor Sapienza district.

“These are things that can happen in different European cities, particularly in peripheral neighbourhoods already suffering from other problems.  [So why didn't he see that when he essentially invited the masses to Italy in 2013?---ed]

“I call on the authorities, at every level, to address what now constitutes a social emergency which, if not dealt with soon in an adequate manner, risks degenerating further.

No kidding!

See our report (Saturday) on “the scene of some of the worst scenes of anti-immigrant violence witnessed in Europe for years.”

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?

Pamela Geller does the Somalis go to Wyoming for housing vouchers story!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 16, 2014

….and really pulls a lot of threads together for a larger audience than we have!

This is what Geller says at Atlas Shrugs about our post that was being so widely read over the last couple of weeks (hat tip:  Richard at Blue Ridge Forum).

Let’s hope the story makes it to Fox News!

Tucker Carlson come in please!

Reportedly Carlson asked on Fox just this morning—why are we bringing refugees from countries that hate us?  If you see that clip, send it our way!

For new readers, Wyoming is the last state in the nation to have a refugee resettlement office and last year the Republican governor Matt Mead invited the feds and a Lutheran contractor in to set up shop.  The citizens of Wyoming rose up and so far newly re-elected Mead has not moved forward with the plan (unless of course it is being done in secret).  See our lengthy archive on refugees and Mead by clicking here.

Sweden: Muslim immigrant gangs control no-go zones

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 16, 2014

This is not new news for readers of RRW.  This is the inevitable result of Sweden swinging wide its gates to Muslim phony asylum seekers for years and more proof for my contention that Sweden will be the first European country to fall in the ‘Invasion of Europe.’

OMG! Can you imagine the day when Muslim gangs torch cars in America!

 

From Matt Danielsson at the Daily Caller:

The situation in the gang-controlled no-go zones of Sweden is deteriorating rapidly. Following the police report conceding the areas to the primarily Muslim immigrant gangs, the Swedish ambulance union is now demanding military grade protection gear to enter the no-go zones.

There have been a number of violent incidents lately, where thugs attack ambulances responding to calls in the zones. Thugs have slashed the tires of the ambulances, smashed their windshields and hurled large rocks from overpasses, while the paramedics themselves are subjected to both armed and unarmed physical violence on a regular basis. The situation has become so dire that the ambulance union now demands dramatically improved protection for its members.

Hate crimes are one-directional!

White citizens are haters, but immigrants can never be racists and perpetrators of hate crimes (actually come to think of it, during his tenure at the Justice Department, US Attorney General Eric Holder has been trying to get that concept into American law too!):

Ethnic Swedes are also being attacked. Local celebrity Linda Edenström’s 12-year old son was savagely beaten. In October, he took the subway after school to give a birthday present to a girl in his class. He was unaware she lived in a no-go zone, and when he exited the station he was promptly stopped by seven grown immigrants. They declared that no whites were allowed and proceeded to attack him while hurling anti-white slurs.

Swedish law states that the incident is not a hate crime. The law does not apply to an immigrant targeting a native Swede, even if an immigrant does so while explicitly stating they are doing it for racial reasons. However, the reverse situation with a native Swede saying a slur that could be perceived as racist has severe civil and criminal charges.

Read it all and follow links to related stories.

Our extensive archive on Sweden is here. Their Muslim population has now reached a critical tipping point emboldening the Islamists.

And, our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series is here.

Dallas, TX receives refugees looking for work, Catholic Charities is the ‘head hunter’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 16, 2014

There is nothing earth-shattering in this Dallas News story.  In fact I’m posting it to show new readers how reporters just lap up refugee none-news put out from the refugee PR machine and translate it into a warm and fuzzy story (the only thing missing in this one is the ‘refugees see first snow!’ but of course this is Dallas).  If you are a new reader and/or from Texas you might find this enlightening.

However, reporters such as this one—Dianne Solis—never go beyond the surface and ask questions like how much is this costing US and Texas taxpayers because Catholic Charities is largely funded by your tax dollars?  Or, are there Texans who need these jobs? (Does Catholic Charities also help poor Texans find work?)  Or, are the Dallas schools struggling with the influx of so many diverse immigrants? Or, how much welfare do the refugees receive even after they reach that mythical goal of self-sufficiency?  (See our fact sheet for the welfare goodies) etc.

From Dallas News:

Mohammad Farah, Catholic Charities of Dallas, trains refugees for job placement. http://www.catholiccharitiesdallas.org/category/employee-stories/

Mohammed Farah shares his story as a refugee from war-ravaged Somalia to a class of fresh arrivals. [Message:  Mohammed hung in there and now works for Catholic Charities of Dallas!—ed]

Dallas and Texas generally top the list of US State Department targets for resettlement:

Today, now working as the refugee resettlement program manager for the nonprofit Catholic Charities, the 51-year-old Farah coaches others on the art of resurrection. And the demand is growing — Texas has led the nation for the last four years in refugee resettlements, and Catholic Charities in Dallas last year handled about 725 cases, or about 10 percent of the state’s total.

During the recent two-day orientation, Farah spoke to about two dozen refugees, ranging from Iraqi engineers to Burmese farmers.

He’s blunt about what it takes to succeed: Prepare mentally for endurance in the labor market. Take any job, any wage, any shift. And smell like a flower, he says. Farah’s point on fabulous hygiene finally provokes some smiles from the serious morning crowd.

Iraqis, Burmese and Bhutanese have led the flow into Texas. Rounding out the top 10 are newcomers from Somalia, Iran, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Cuba, Eritrea, Sudan and Ethiopia.  [Bringing multiculturalism and democrat voters to Red Texas---ed]

Faking you out with the numbers:

“Your first job is not your lifetime job,” he says.

Many stare back glumly. One woman keeps her arms tightly folded across her chest, pressing her fingers into her biceps. [LOL!  see the Dallas News photo for grumpy refugee.]

[....]

Catholic Charities of Dallas finds jobs for 98 percent of those it resettles within 180 days, says Avril Knox, the director of refugee resettlement services for the Dallas agency.

Catholic Charities is in competition with other resettlement contractors for the next batch of refugees so they are all padding their employment numbers to appear more successful than their grant-seeking competitors.

This 98% figure is bogus! It is an example of the Jonathan Gruber syndrome (government can lie to you if it advances their cause).   These agencies work like heck to get refugees signed up for any job just as their reporting numbers are due into the feds. It doesn’t matter if the refugee quits or is fired the next week.  What matters is if he or she is employed on reporting day!

And the Dallas News story wraps up with this instead of an account of the ‘first-snow’ thrill.    I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve seen this—refugee kid wants to be a doctor:

His enthusiasm hits home for one 13-year-old Iraqi girl, who fled with her family to the U.S. She says she’s eager to start school and mathematics classes.

“I want to be a doctor because I like to help sick people,” she said.

Read it all, and if you live in Texas you need to really start digging into the facts and exposing them—start a website on Texas LEGAL immigration news. You have a big fat target on your state!

BTW, Catholic Charities of Dallas was also involved in the Unaccompanied Alien Children mess this summer.

Go here for our archive on Dallas.  One Texas city, Amarillo, has developed a “pocket of resistance” to more refugee resettlement.
