Could Congolese refugees bring Ebola to America?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 24, 2014

That is a possibility presented by Aaron Klein writing at World Net Daily this week, here.  Hat tip: several readers.

We briefly noted the fact that Ebola, although supposedly a different strain than the one making the news, is present in DR Congo.

And, we are bringing a huge number of Congolese refugees (DR Congo) to America at the UNHCR’s urging—50,000 by 2019, see our post yesterday.

We admitted 4,540 Congolese refugees to the US in FY2014 which ended on Sept. 30th, 2014  (go here, map is incorrect, scroll down to table).

However, I think a greater long-term threat to America is what we reported yesterday—Congolese women in need of mental health treatment raising children in some impoverished home in your town or city.

Remember readers! Refugee health treatment is the responsibility of your local health departments!  See our health issues category here for what other diseases and health problems (including mental health) you are responsible for.

From World Net Daily which is becoming the go-to major internet news source*** for refugee news (something we are very grateful to see):

Since an outbreak of Ebola hit the Democratic Republic of the Congo in July, the Obama administration has brought into the U.S. at least 1,900 refugees from the disease-stricken nation, WND has learned.

Required medical screening for refugees may not detect all diseases. The mandatory blood and urine tests for all refugees would not detect Ebola.

The strain of Ebola found in the Congo is slightly different from the virus that has been ravaging West Africa. Researchers have concluded the Congolese outbreak is not connected to the epidemic in West Africa.

The U.S. refugee program this year is on pace to resettle 70,000 citizens, including a limit for the fiscal year of 2014 of 14,000 from Africa, with the State Department giving priority to Congolese refugees.

Since July, at least 1,900 Congolese refugees have been resettled within the U.S., according to statistics provided by the State Department.

A report from the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration shows 944 refugees were admitted from the Congo in July; 628 in August and 338 in September, for a total of 1,910 Congolese refugees.

The exact number of arrivals from the Congo for this month are not yet published. However, the total number of October arrivals so far from the region of Africa, according to the State Department, is 934, with most likely coming from the Congo.

The Congo has had its own outbreak of Ebola that started in late-July reportedly after a hunter brought home an infected bush animal carcass. Since then, 49 people have died in the Congo.

There is much more, read it all.

Bye Bye Bavaria (swamped with needy Middle Eastern migrants)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 24, 2014

Earlier this month refugees block a street in Munich demanding better housing. Some were laying in the street. http://www.thelocal.de/20141010/munich-refugees-put-up-in-oktoberfest-tents-bavaria-asylum-seekers

 

More in our ‘invasion of Europe’ series…..

Germany has open its doors to tens of thousands of refugees from the Middle East and Africa (trying ever-so-hard to look like good people), but is now reaping the whirlwind as they run out of space to house them and resort to Oktoberfest beer hall tents in King Ludwig’s Bavaria.

From the UK Telegraph:

Bavaria has been overwhelmed by an unexpected flood of refugees with as many as 300 a day arriving in Munich, many of them fleeing the violence in Iraq and Syria.

The accommodation shortage in the city is so severe that authorities have considered using one of the vast tents left over from the Oktoberfest beer festival to house refugees.

Families are being put in makeshift shelters ranging from a former table-dancing bar to the Munich Olympic stadium. But with many currently in tents and the Bavarian winter looming, authorities are warning that they need proper accommodation as quickly as possible.
Munich’s main refugee centre at Bayernkaserne, a former military facility, has become so overcrowded that it has been forced to shut its gates to new arrivals. Designed for 1,200 people, it is currently housing twice that number.

After the centre closed, new arrivals began camping in the open outside the gates. Shuttle buses are now picking up refugees outside the Munich centre and taking them to temporary accommodation in other cities.

[....]

Bavaria has been particularly badly hit because Munich lies on two of the most popular refugee routes into Europe, via Italy and the Balkans.

See our growing archive on Germany.  Ever wanted to visit Germany? go now before it’s too late.  With a foothold in Germany, these “refugees” will never leave.  I see no way out for Germany, do you?

Canada: Humanitarian groups ask government to immediately allow 10,000 Syrian refugees to settle there

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 24, 2014

Pretty rotten timing for this demand wouldn’t you say?

Alazem wants an explanation of why Canada is dragging its feet. Gee, let me guess!

Just what Canada needs right now—to welcome 10,000 Muslims in at this time.  Granted the Islamic killers Canada has had to deal with over the last week are “home grown,”  I’m thinking the average Canadian citizen is fed up with everything ‘Islam’ and is saying WTH to this latest from the humanitarian industrial complex. [Update:  sort of home grown!]

By the way, most Syrian refugees being resettled around the world right now are Sunni Muslims from UN run camps.

From UNHCR News of course:

Humanitarian groups want Immigration Minister Chris Alexander to immediately let 10,000 Syrian refugees settle here and they want an explanation why the Canadian government is dragging its feet when it comes to resettling Syrians.

In 2013, Ottawa promised to admit 1,300 Syrian refugees yet the groups say only 200 people have been accepted into Canada, said Faisal Alazem, a Syrian-Canadian with the humanitarian group the Union of Syrian Medical Relief Organizations. The union helps set up field hospitals inside Syria.

Every time they ask Ottawa for precise numbers on how many Syrians have been let in, they get the runaround, said Alazem,

“There is never a clear answer. There are always answers that deflect you. We hear a lot that Canada prides itself in hosting one in every 10 (world) refugees. But our estimate is that there are not more than 200 Syrian refugees here, so far,” he said, referring to the 2013 promise.

Read it all (but you won’t find the words Christian Syrians if that is what you are looking for).

John McCain: Move Iranian dissidents from Iraq to the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 24, 2014

Just for your information…..

John McCain: They can live with me. I have some extra homes to share! (Not)

From the National Council of Resistance of Iran:

U.S. Senator John McCain sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday to raise concerns about Iranian opposition members in Camp Liberty, Iraq, whose lives are increasingly at risk as the security situation in Iraq, particularly in Baghdad, continues to deteriorate.

The letter published in Senator McCain website states:

“I am writing you to follow-up on the response I received in August to my previous letter concerning the ongoing refugee resettlement process and to discuss my continuing concerns about the residents of Camp Liberty,” writes Senator John McCain.

“As you are aware, due to the increasingly dangerous threat of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the resettlement process has stalled, and many fear that the people at Camp Liberty could be at grave risk if the security situation in Iraq, and especially in Baghdad, continues to deteriorate.

“For this reason, the Administration must move more quickly to find safe, permanent, and secure locations for Camp Liberty residents outside Iraq. I was encouraged to hear about Albania’s willingness to temporarily host some Camp Liberty residents for purposes of identifying individuals for relocation to the United States.

Although we might have sympathy for the dissidents’ plight, is it our job to take in the squabbling factions from the Middle East?  Just asking!

McCain’s press release is here.

And, by the way, where is Obama pal Samantha Power and her doctrine—the Responsibility to Protect?  And, come to think of it, why can’t the UN protect them?

World Net Daily does it again! Detailed report on American mayors objecting to refugee resettlement for their cities

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2014

Reporter Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily again shows his skill at pulling together threads of a complicated and very secretive program of the federal government—the US State Department’s and the Office of Refugee Resettlement’s (in HHS) program (at the UN’s direction) to demographically change your towns and cities.   Nashua, NH take note!

Update!  All of you in cities with refugee resettlement should send the WND story to your mayors and mayoral candidates.

Here is how his latest detailed report from yesterday on a revolt of mayors across the country begins (he spoke with the mayor of Athens, Georgia):

The mayor of Athens, Georgia, has joined a growing chorus of mayors across the U.S. who are concerned about the federal government’s resettlement of foreign refugees in their cities and the resulting drain on public services.

Athens GA mayor Nancy Denson: we want a detailed plan on how refugees would integrate.

The refugees come from war-torn countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East and require a plethora of government services to help them overcome language and cultural barriers. They have little or no job skills that translate into trades in a modern economy such as the U.S.

Athens has been targeted as the latest refugee city of destination by New York City-based International Rescue Committee Inc., which provides resettlement services for the federal government on a contract basis. IRC wants to transplant 150 refugees who are fleeing Iraq, Syria, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burma.

Athens Mayor Nancy Denson recently sent a letter asking the IRC to delay the resettlement until it can put together a “formal refugee integration plan.”

Once the IRC gets approval to open an office in Athens, the pipeline of refugees would continue on an annual basis. That’s why Denson said the community must know ahead of time if it is able to accommodate the needs of the refugees for housing, schooling, public health and welfare services.

Denson, a Democrat, has the support of Republican Gov. Nathan Deal in her effort to forestall the opening of an IRC resettlement office in Athens. International Rescue Committee is the largest and oldest of the nine private agencies that contract with the federal government to resettle foreign refugees in U.S. cities.

It is long but read it all.  It is chock-full of information not just about Athens, but about many other cities (pockets of resistance) as well.

Nashua, NH to take 150 new refugees this year; contact the mayor!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2014

New Hampshire readers (others too!) need to send yesterday’s World Net Daily story to Nashua’s mayor!

Titled, Another US city protests influx of refugees,’ the article (a must-read) is a broad overview of cities across America where mayors are asking questions and demanding the flow stop (or in the case of Athens, GA not even begin).  Once an agency gets a foothold, they won’t stop at 150!

This article in the Nashua Telegraph requires a subscription.  Here is a bit of it from a reader who is a subscriber.

And, LOL!, check it out, Lutheran Social Services of New England has changed its name.   By the way, this is a prime example of how these resettlement contractors (whatever they re-name themselves) overload certain cities then spread out from there.  They are running out of “welcoming” places to drop-off refugees!

Nashua Mayor Donnalee Lozeau needs to talk to other mayors before she jumps into the frying pan. Or is it too late? Contact the mayor here: http://www.gonashua.com/CityGovernment/MayorsOffice/MayorsBiography/tabid/66/Default.aspx

Three years ago, the mayor of Manchester asked officials to stop resettling families in the state’s largest city.

And just last year, Nashua’s mayor urged caution when about 50 refugees were set to come here, saying the city needed to make sure the appropriate services were in place.

“I want to make sure that the refugees that are resettled in Nashua are successful,” Lozeau said last year.

“We’ve got to make sure the school they may be going to will be prepared to assist them, that they have safe and affordable housing in a location that’s appropriate.”

Resettlement has been a coordinated effort among city services, volunteer groups and the School District, said Amy Marchildon, program director of the New Hampshire arm of refugee placement agency Ascentria Services for New Americans, formerly Lutheran Social Services of New England.

The organization works with people seeking asylum and secondary migrants, placing them primarily in Laconia, Concord and Nashua.

“There is a real network of support in social services and volunteer support … and a lot of support from the city,” Marchildon said.

Historically, Nashua has received few refugees compared with other New Hampshire communities.

Manchester has received more than 4,400 refugees since 1998, while Concord took in more than 1,600 and Laconia received nearly 500.

But the state’s second largest city took in only 218 refugees during that time, according to resettlement figures from the state Department of Health and Human Services.

Lozeau said city agencies have come together to meet the impending influx of refugees.

There is more to the news, but you may have to subscribe to get it.

See our very extensive archive on New Hampshire by clicking here.  See also this June 2013 post where the Office of Refugee Resettlement already said that New Hampshire had “pockets of resistance.”  I wonder, did ORR send “Welcoming America” to Nashua?

NY Times does the ‘invasion of Europe’ boat people story

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 21, 2014

For our regular readers there is not much new here except that we get some details about one particular smuggling route out of Egypt and it makes me wonder why the hell all of the European powers and American pressure on Egypt too, couldn’t get the Egyptian government to stop this lucrative smuggling route.

Instead of really clamping down on Egypt, one policy consideration for the Europeans is to increase LEGAL immigration as a way of stopping the smuggling business.  Sheesh!

The ‘stars’ of this New York Times article are Palestinian brothers who survived a boat wreck and are now in Malta hankering to move on to a first world country.  Emphasis is mine:

Today, the business of smuggling refugees and migrants across the Mediterranean into Europe has become a hugely profitable, if deadly, enterprise, with more than 3,000 people believed to have died so far this year. One United Nations official estimated that in 2014 smugglers on those routes would gross more than $1 billion, with sophisticated operations that sometimes overlap with criminal gangs who traffic in arms and drugs.

For Europe, the enormous influx of migrants and refugees has stirred both sympathy and resentment, while presenting a policy conundrum — the humanitarian imperative of rescuing the desperate at sea versus the economic and political burden of absorbing them.

With illegal migration very likely to keep growing, one question is whether to expand legal migration.

[....]

By some estimates, as many as one million migrants are hiding on the North African coast, from Libya to Egypt, during the peak summer months, waiting for boats. In Egypt, smuggling in Alexandria and nearby ports has risen sharply since the Syrian exodus began in 2013, when five to seven boats left every week. Now five to seven boats leave every day.

The Palestinian survivors, looking for sympathy, want your help to get into some sweet country:

Today, the three survivors are living in a migrant center and trapped in bureaucratic limbo in Malta. They want to reach a country that will provide them asylum, perhaps Sweden or Canada or Australia. But on Wednesday, they must submit fingerprints and be processed in Malta.

“We need support,” said Mamoun Doghmosh. “We need help.”

Read it all.  Note that there are many places along this smuggling pipeline where the migrant flow could be stopped.

Please don’t anyone tell them that the US State Department is packing up illegal aliens in Malta and bringing them to America.  We will be taking another 500 this fiscal year!

Obama “welcomes” 100,000 Haitians to your towns and cities

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2014

Obama is getting it done with his pen and phone while everyone yaks about the Republicans possibly winning the Senate in a few weeks and while we follow shiny objects—like the Ebola mess.

Obama getting it done!

Folks I hate to break it to you, but Obama will have two years to do his unlawful work because even if Republicans take control of the Congressional branch there appear to be few leaders who have any guts there to stop (or undo) any of the outrageous executive actions he is getting done.

I don’t understand why more Republican Senators and Congressional leaders don’t speak up now and thus assure their victory in November.

We better hope the 80-year-old Senator Grassley stays in the Senate and stays healthy!

By the way, there are already tens of thousands of Haitians here legally under Temporary Protected Status.  See our category on Haiti, here, to learn how that came about. Since they are here legally I expect their families will be applying for family reunification under the new Obama plan.

I’m also guessing that these new Haitians will come under the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement and their contractors thus making this another expansion (in addition to the UACs) of the definition of the word ‘refugee’ and further broadening the refugee resettlement program thus giving the new Haitians immediate access to welfare, one of the plums that comes to those designated as “refugees.”  (Someone correct me if I am wrong!).

From the Washington Times (hat tip: Erich):

The ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee took the Obama administration to task Friday for its “irresponsible” plan to allow as many as 100,000 Haitians to immigrate to the U.S. without a visa.

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said the administration’s Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program — which will allow thousands of Haitians awaiting a U.S. visa to enter the country and legally apply for work permits — is “an irresponsible overreach of the executive branch’s authority.”

Which countries are next on President Obama’s list?” Mr. Grassley said. “Will there by medical screenings before entry? Will work permits be granted automatically? How will this affect American workers?”

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the branch of the Department of Homeland Security that handles immigration benefits cases, announced Friday the program to unite Haitians already living in the U.S. with family members abroad will ramp up in 2015.

At that time the State Department’s National Visa Center will begin notifying families who may be eligible to take part in the program. Those immigrants will allowed to apply for work permits while waiting for issuance of their permanent visas.

The agency said the program will expedite “safe, legal and orderly migration.”

NGOs organize Cambodian protesters to oppose Australia refugee deal

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2014

What! Not “welcoming” refugees in Cambodia? Are these Cambodians racists, xenophobes (maybe even Islamophobes)?

Cambodians protesting in Phnom Penh. We don’t want refugees here! We have our own poor people to take care of! Gee! Where have I heard that before? Reuters photo.

 

If you are arriving here for the first time, please see our ‘Australia category’ for all the background on this.  The gist of it is that Australia has struck a very lucrative deal for the Cambodian government to take some of Australia’s boat people asylum-seekers and resettle them in Cambodia.

Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison royally ticked-off the humanitarian industrial complex when he dared ask—if the asylum seekers want safety, then why not resettle in Cambodia?  Why, he asked, do they have a right to a first world country?   See our recent post.

So here is the latest:  The Leftwing Non-governmental Organizations have ginned-up demonstrations in Phnom Penh where demonstrators demanded that Australia keep the asylum seekers.

You know what strikes me as so funny (sort of) is that no one calls the Cambodians “racists” or “xenophobes” for not wanting the refugees and wanting their own people taken care of first!    Imagine if we took to the streets with placards not wanting to “welcome” refugees!

From Reuters:

Movements, students and religious organizations have joined a growing chorus of opposition to Cambodia’s agreement to resettle refugees from Australia.

Protesters in Cambodia issued a petition on Friday calling for the government to ditch a controversial agreement to resettle refugees redirected from Australia.

[.....]

The march was in response to a controversial deal inked between the Cambodian and Australian governments in late September.

Under the deal, the Cambodian government agreed to take in refugees from Australian detention centers, in exchange for cash from Canberra to cover resettlement costs.

The Australian government sweetened the deal by pledging around US$35 million in development projects over the next four years. While both governments say the deal guarantees refugees their rights under international law, the thousands of protesters who took to the streets of Phnom Penh thought otherwise.

The article goes on to quote protestors who say their own poor people are not being adequately cared-for.

Sure looks like some skilled ‘community organizers’ and outside agitators have moved in to whip up a frenzy!  Funny though that the mainstream media plays right along when the demonstration fits the media’s agenda as well.

Organized by a broad coalition of NGOs, monks, students and others, the protesters delivered a petition condemning the deal to the government, offices of the United Nations and European Union, and embassies of Australia and United States.  [Why in front of the US embassy, is this any of our business?---ed]

It wasn’t long ago that Israelis went to the streets and said they didn’t want refugees there either and all hell broke loose and worldwide criticism followed.  Here is one story from January 2013 about citizens of Tel Aviv demonstrating and wanting African migrants deported, but of course those demonstrators weren’t treated with kid gloves by the media as the Cambodians are.  Funny how that double-standard works, isn’t it?

Remember Cloward and Piven and how to bring on the revolution while hiding behind the shield of good intentions?  We get it! We know that it is all about flooding wealthy western countries with third world impoverished people in order to bring down the West.

UNHCR: Europe has to take more Syrian refugees; rich Arab countries not criticized

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2014

Speaking in the United Arab Emirates (of all places), Socialist UN High Commissioner for Refugees admonishes European nations (again)—allow more Syrian refugees into your countries!

UN High Commissioner for Refugees Guterres never demands that rich Arab countries take in their fellow Muslim refugees!

From the Associated Press:

SHARJAH, United Arab Emirates (AP) – The head of the United Nations refugee agency on Wednesday urged countries, particularly in Europe, to review their laws to allow entry to more Syrians fleeing their country’s civil war.

Antonio Guterres said on the sidelines of a conference in the United Arab Emirates that a refugee crisis across the Middle East is a global security threat. He urged more legal avenues for Syrian refugees to resettle in Europe, and avoid risking their lives with smugglers.

“This is not only the worst humanitarian crisis in the last decades, it is also the biggest threat to regional peace and security,” he said. “It’s a global threat.”

Blah, Blah, Blah…

Then near the end.  Remember that some wealthy Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, TAKE NO REFUGEES:

The conference was hosted by Sharjah ruler Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi and his wife Sheikha Jawaher.

The United Arab Emirates, along with the five other energy-rich nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council, have been criticized by rights groups for not opening their borders to refugees from the myriad of conflicts across the region.

Guterres said he is calling on all countries, everywhere, to do more.   [Maybe, but it is Europe, the US, Canada and Australia he chastises on a regular basis!---ed]

Is Guterres too chicken or is his goal to help spread the Muslim population worldwide?

End note:  RRW will be taking a break beginning today after we post a few more stories.  Be back on October 20th and will be able to post your comments then.
