West Virginia: Is Catholic Charities bringing in foreign laborers for a poultry plant to compete with Americans?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 26, 2016

Here are some of the facts as we know them:

West Virginia is a relatively new resettlement state which has received only 176 refugees in the last ten fiscal years.

However, in addition to Catholic Charities resettling refugees, Episcopal Migration Ministries wants to open a new office in Charleston.  Presently CC has three locations and one of those is in Moorefield, WV.

jbs-greeley

This is the magnificent headquarters building Brazilian-owned JBS has in Greeley, CO. JBS owns most of Pilgrim’s Pride. So think about it! If you have Pilgrim’s Pride or any other JBS company in your town, it is being changed so a foreign-owned company can have cheap/compliant/foreign labor. (This is a photograph I took as I passed through Greeley on my RRW road trip this summer.)

 

What else is in Moorefield? I’ll tell you! There is a Pilgrim’s Pride poultry plant located there.

Here are some things we know about Pilgrim’s Pride:

It is owned by the Brazilian meat giant—JBS (you may know them as Swift & Co.) headquartered in Greeley, CO.

And, now get this. The very same Labor Department, that I would normally be complaining about, says that in some locations in the US, Pilgrim’s Pride is DISCRIMINATING against African American job applicants, Caucasians and women!  They are choosing Hispanic laborers (and it would appear refugee laborers) over Americans!

This is from a Dept. of Labor Press Release dated 10/7/2015:

ATLANTA — One of the world’s largest chicken processors systematically discriminated against qualified African-American applicants seeking entry-level jobs as laborers and operatives at its chicken plant in Marshville, North Carolina, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs alleges in a lawsuit filed against Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation.

“Discrimination will not be tolerated by employers who profit from government contracts,” said OFCCP Director Patricia A. Shiu. “OFCCP will use every action available by law, including canceling Pilgrim’s federal contracts if necessary, to ensure workers are treated fairly.”

The complaint results from an OFCCP investigation into the company’s selection procedures. This is the second lawsuit filed by OFCCP against the company in less than 30 days. The first complaint, filed on Sept. 15, 2015, alleges that Pilgrim’s Pride systematically discriminated against qualified African-American, Caucasian, and female applicants for entry-level laborer and operative positions at its chicken plant in Athens, Alabama. Both complaints were filed with the department’s Office of Administrative Law Judges and seek complete make-whole relief, including instatement of qualified black applicants at the chicken processing facility, payment of lost wages, interest, front wages, and other fringe benefits, including but not limited to retroactive seniority.

[….]

As a result, some African-American, Caucasian, and female applicants were rejected despite having education and experience levels comparable to male and Hispanic applicants. The Athens plant is no longer in operation.

Based in Greeley, Colorado, Pilgrim’s Pride is the largest chicken producer in the U.S. The Brazilian food giant JBS S.A. owns 75 percent of Pilgrim’s Pride’s outstanding common stock.

From 2007 to 2011, Pilgrim’s Pride received more than $36 million in federal contracts as a provider of poultry to agencies such as the departments of Defense and Agriculture.

Could that same discrimination being going on in other Pilgrim’s Pride plants?

Back to Moorefield and Catholic Charities.

I checked the numbers from the Refugee Processing Center and here is what I learned.  In the last 10 fiscal years, 176 refugees were resettled in WV.  49% of those went to Moorefield (CC lists poultry processing job availability there in its R & P Abstract).

Beginning in about Fiscal Year 2010, CC began resettling Burmese refugees (36 total) in Moorefield. In 2012 they began placing Eritreans there (42) and then 6 Iraqis and 2 Ethiopians followed.  I know that numbers-wise it is small compared to the numbers being placed for the benefit of BIG MEAT around the country, but it strikes me as a very clear indication of how supposed ‘religious’ charities are working for the benefit of meat processors.  But why? Is it all about money?

What is in it for the pols?

Then we get to the politicians.  Moorefield is in WV District 2 (Rep Alex Mooney) who won that district when former Rep and now US Senator Shelley Moore Capito moved on to the Senate. Both are Republicans.  What is in it for them to defend this practice of hiring refugees when African Americans, and Caucasian women need work in WV?

I don’t know the answer except for the Dems we know they are looking for more Democrat voters.

But as each of you begins to unravel why refugee labor is changing your towns (and why your elected officials aren’t listening to you), you need to figure out what is in it for Republican elected officials at all levels because I can assure you this is not about ‘humanitarianism!’ That is only the cover for big business (and the Chamber of Commerce!) to continue to push for more refugee admissions to the US.

American Thinker: Trump sees the Trojan Horse

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 26, 2016

battle_of_vienna_1

Actually the Ottoman Turks (the Muslims) were ultimately defeated at the Gates of Vienna in 1683. Polish Hussars, pictured here, pushed the Turks back on SEPTEMBER 11-12, 1683 freeing the Austrians and sparing Germany. Gates of Vienna blog posted a good report on what happened here a few years ago: http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2006/09/other-september-11th.html Unfortunately, the Muslims are back today as so-called “refugees” being welcomed to take Europe without a fight.

There is a good article about the Hijra by Ted Belman at American Thinker yesterday. Here are the opening paragraphs:

 

Ever wonder why there are so many Muslims and Muslim countries in the world? Over the millennia many countries were conquered, but didn’t remain Persian or Greek or Roman as the case may be. You see, the countries conquered in the name of Islam, became and remained Islamic. For example Pakistan, part of India, and Malaysia both were Hindu; Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Egypt and N. Africa were Christian; Afghanistan was Buddhist. They are all Islamic now.

This transformation was not by chance but by design. All these countries were conquered by force then shorn of their wealth and many of their women. Then the Muslim conquerors introduced Sharia and continued fighting the local inhabitants. The inhabitants were either forced to convert or accorded Dhimmi status. As time went on all cultures submitted and eventually became Islamic.

The advance of Islam was finally reversed in Spain and stopped at the Gates of Vienna in 1642 [Not sure about 1642, here is the final battle in 1683. More here—ed]. Thereafter the power of Islam went into decline but other than Spain, it never lost its hold on the people it conquered. This decline was reversed in the Twentieth Century when Arabs became wealthy as a result of their vast oil reserves. This wealth was then deployed to conquer the west, not by Violent Jihad, but by Stealth Jihad.

This design was referred to as The Islamic Doctrine.

Continue reading here.

The Islamists know and understand their history better than we do!  I bet they are laughing their heads off about the success they are having invading Europe today!  Interesting isn’t it that Poland is one of the few European countries that ‘gets it’ and isn’t inviting in the Muslim ‘refugees.’

BTW, we have a category here at RRW for years called ‘Stealth Jihad.’  Check it out sometime.

Washington state killer is from Turkey, Muslim refugee family?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 25, 2016

arcan-cetin

Arcan Cetin

Unfortunately I have no time to learn more this morning. I’m dashing out to a meeting in DC, but caught a blip on the news that oops!, not Hispanic.  Breitbart posted a story during the night.  Here it is.

Police have identified the alleged shooter in the Burlington mall attack as Arcan Cetin, 20, of Oak Harbor, Washington. Multiple reports indicate that Cetin was an immigrant from Turkey — not a citizen, but a legal permanent resident of the United States.

So, through which LEGAL immigration program did he enter the US? More later!

Afterthought: could he be an Uzbek, a Chechen or Bosnian (we do take them as refugees and process many through Turkey!)  Just speculating! Readers, let me know what you find out today!

Update: See our comments for more on Cetin.  And note that there is a Syrian refugee camp at Adana, Turkey where Cetin is supposedly from.  So what is the story on this guy, why is it taking so long to fill us in.

Senator Jeff Sessions’ Senate subcommittee has re-scheduled Refugee Oversight hearing

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 24, 2016

This is the same hearing that the Dept. of State said they couldn’t attend last week because they were too busy hobnobbing at the United Nations.

bob_carey_orr_director_2

One of those scheduled to testify is Bob Carey the Director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS). Carey came to his government job from a major refugee contracting job at the International Rescue Committee. He had previously served as chair of the Refugee Council USA, the lobbying arm for the refugee industry. (Revolving door!) http://www.acf.hhs.gov/about/leadership/bob-carey

The hearing in Sessions’ subcommittee ‘Immigration and the National Interest’ will be this coming Wednesday, the 28th.

Go here for details.

I’m thinking that maybe you should tell your US Senators on Monday and Tuesday to take the time this week to attend Sessions’ hearing so they won’t be so ignorant about this program that is changing (and endangering!) America. It is a good excuse to call them.

Heck, you could even tell  your House Members to walk across the Hill and stop in since the House Judiciary Committee (Rep. Trey Gowdy is Sessions’ counterpart in the House) isn’t doing anything.

Again, check out the Senate Subcommittee website here. I expect they will be live-streaming the event.

For a reminder of what happened at this same hearing last year, go here.

And, by the way, until Sessions’ hearing last year, Congress had not been doing its legally required hearing on the Presidential Determination.  I believe that hearing was the first since 9/11.

Here is what I said last year about the law!  LOL! I wonder if there is anyway to sue the House Judiciary Committee for breaking the law?

Weekly round-up for the week ending September 24, 2016

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 24, 2016

One week ago today we had two Islamic terror attacks perpetrated by a refugee and another by a man whose family we gave political asylum to…

And, one week from today, October 1, 2016 expect the flood gates to open as the Obama Administration’s 110,000 refugees begin to flow into your towns. The word coming from the over-joyed refugee industry itself is that 20,000-30,000 will be Syrian (mostly Sunni) Muslim refugees.

Frankly, I expect Obama’s open-borders-pushers throughout the government will see these last nearly 4 months of Obama’s presidency as their opportunity to go on an orgy—admitting refugees with complete abandon—especially as they know there seems to be no will in Congress to stop him!

 

mitch_mcconnell_paul_ryan_er_151231_12x5_1600

Forget Obama! These two men, Senator Mitch McConnell and Rep. Paul Ryan, are DIRECTLY responsible for the refugee flow to your towns and cities. I wonder does McConnell have a wall around his home like Ryan does?

 

For right now, forget your mayors, your city councils, your state legislators and your governors with their lawsuits, there are eight key people (all REPUBLICANS) who could stop the invasion if they wanted to join forces: In the Senate it is Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, Subcommittee Chairman Jeff Sessions and Appropriations Committee Chairman Thad Cochran.

In the House it is Speaker Paul Ryan, Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Subcommittee Chairman Trey Gowdy, and Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers.

Only one so far, and that is Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, has the guts to stand up for sanity as Obama brings in thousands upon thousands of refugees.  Forget security for a minute and consider how unsustainable Obama’s plan is on a fiscal level.

Thanks for listening to my tirade!  Here are the Top Three Posts of the week. No surprise, they all relate to the St. Cloud Somali terror attack of last Saturday night.

Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota is responsible for the Somali chaos in St. Cloud

Knife-wielding attacker (who injured 9) in St. Cloud mall was a Somali

MN Governor Dayton: Don’t like immigrants, get out of Minnesota!

Imperial Beach, CA mayor withdraws from “Welcoming City” program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 24, 2016

This just goes to show what a handful of citizens can do when they put their minds to it!  In California, no less! citizens learned that their mayor and council had signed a “Welcoming cities” proclamation last month.

Having none of it, the citizens pushed back and just yesterday, the Mayor rescinded the proclamation.  Hat tip: Brenda.

Here is one news story at KUSI News two days ago.

IMPERIAL BEACH (KUSI) — The mayor of Imperial Beach is under attack. A small group of people are accusing him of inviting refugees with an official proclamation.

The mayor himself is a little shocked. He believes it’s a big misunderstanding.

It may be a laid back little beach town, but Imperial Beach suddenly finds itself in the middle of an international hot topic.

Last month, Mayor Serge Dedina issued a proclamation, declaring Imperial Beach to be a “Welcoming City.”

The “Welcoming Communities” program is an Obama initiative intended to resettle large numbers of refugees from Syria, the rest of the Middle East and Latin America in cities and towns across America as part of his “fundamental transformation.”

At the time, Mayor Dedina thought it was pretty harmless, but some people believe it goes deeper than that.

They’re suspicious that the words, “welcoming city,” is another way of saying, “sanctuary city.”

No sense wandering in the weeds regarding the definitions because for the average American it is pretty much the same thing!  Welcoming cities are sanctuary cities and vice versa.

Yesterday, the mayor put out this press release:

Where is the House Judiciary Committee on Obama’s refugee plan? Where is the hearing?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 24, 2016

The Refugee Act of 1980 requires a hearing in both the House and Senate Judiciary Committees on the Presidential ‘determination’ on the number of refugees the President is proposing for the upcoming fiscal year—in advance of the fiscal year.

FY2017 begins a week from today!

We know that Senator Jeff Sessions scheduled a hearing and that the Obama State Department refused to attend (see here).

***Update*** Senate hearing postponed from last week is now scheduled for Wednesday the 28th of September.  Details here.

But where is the House?

ryan-and-gowdy

Rep. Trey Gowdy is Chairman of the subcommittee responsible for the Refugee Admissions Program. He did not sign the Babin letter where more than 30 of his colleagues (found the time to sign) are asking that funding be stopped for refugees coming from terrorist-producing regions of the world. We are told that Gowdy has since written his own PRIVATE letter to Speaker Ryan on the subject. If there is a letter (doubtful). Why the secrecy?

I just checked the House Judiciary Committee hearing schedule and there is nothing scheduled this week on the largest and most dangerous number of refugees we have proposed to admit to the US probably ever!

Immigration Subcommittee Chairman Trey Gowdy has a hearing scheduled this week on how New Orleans became a sanctuary city, but nothing else.

(It is Gowdy’s subcommittee that would be responsible for reforming the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program, but no one in 30 years, including Gowdy, has had the guts to tackle it.)

I’m sure that New Orleans illegal alien problem is a very important issue, but….

no where near as important as 110,000 refugees (20,000-30,000 Syrians) arriving in the US beginning next Saturday!

And, so far, Chairman of the full committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, doesn’t have any hearing scheduled either when you know that the Administration will open the flood gates in October trying to get as many of their 110,000 in here before Obama leaves office in January.

Are Goodlatte and Gowdy going to sit by silently and watch?

I want you to have a look at the Congressional calendar (below) as it stands right now for the last few months and through the end of they year.  They can’t wait to get that Continuing Budget Resolution (CR) done and get out of DC so they can campaign.

And, the reason we once again will be looking at a Budget rush-job is that Congress (under the leadership of Speaker Paul Ryan) once again did not get their work done in a timely fashion.

Look at this calendar! Frankly they shouldn’t be off for 6 weeks beginning this Friday!

 

2016housecalendar

Most recent calendar I could find, there may be an updated one.

 

But, don’t despair, you have perhaps one of the best opportunities to make their lives miserable as the majority of your representatives will be up for re-election on November 8th. You will need to reach them in their districts on this, in my opinion, the most critical issue this country faces—immigration and specifically refugee resettlement!  Be at every townhall they hold. Picket their offices and their homes if you must to get their attention.

Don’t let any member of the House, or US Senator, tell you it is too late for this year!

They will be coming back to finish the budget during the lame duck session and you need to ‘educate’ them at home because they can cut out funding for the refugee program in the lame duck!  More on that later.

BTW, I don’t know where they are at the moment on the CR (short term funding of the federal government), but keep telling them you want the Refugee Admissions Program defunded (use the word moratorium!) because as frustrating as it is trying to get through to them, your persistence alone sends them a warning message about how important this issue is to you (and to the future of America!).

For any of you who want to read-up on the issue, everything I’ve written on Congress’ role as the branch of government that doles out the money for Obama’s programs is tagged ‘Where is Congress.’

Resettlement industry wants 100,000 Syrians in FY17, 210,000 total refugees and billions more from Congress

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 23, 2016

Just to recap, Obama’s final ‘determination’ sent to Capitol Hill a week ago calls for a ceiling*** of 110,000 refugees from all over the world for Fiscal year 2017 which begins in 8 days.  He did not indicate how many of those would be Syrians but recently we learned that 20,000-30,000 would likely be Syrian Muslims.

the National Clean Energy Summit 7.0 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on September 4, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Political and economic leaders are attending the summit to discuss a domestic policy agenda to advance alternative energy for the country's future.

Hillary and John Podesta (working for George Soros) started the Center for American Progress and you can bet if she gets in the White House, the two of them will open the floodgates to the third world. http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/printgroupProfile.asp?grpid=6709

Thanks to Richard at Blue Ridge Forum for spotting this story at the Center for American Progress (CAP) where the resettlement contractors and their friends spell out what they really want. 

They want the 110,000 to be a floor and not a ceiling and they want 100,000 Syrian Muslims on top of 110,000 other refugees.

They also drop some astounding numbers about how many billions of dollars they want from the REPUBLICAN Congress.

Here is the story from earlier in the week:

After a slow start in fiscal year 2016—in which, by the end of May, the United States had only resettled one-quarter of its stated commitment of 10,000 Syrian refugees—the administration announced on August 29 that it had hit its target. According to the administration’s report to Congress laying out its 2017 resettlement goals—the “Proposed Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year 2017”—the administration now believes it will surpass its original goal, bringing in up to 13,000 Syrians by the end of September.

Most importantly, the report to Congress makes clear that the United States will surpass even the commitment made by Secretary of State John Kerry in September 2015 to bring in 100,000 refugees in FY 2017: It raises the target for resettlement in FY 2017 to 110,000 refugees.

[….]

Human Rights First, for example, has called for the administration to admit 100,000 Syrians next year in addition to 100,000 refugees from the rest of the world.

Whatever number of Syrians the administration ultimately decides to admit, it should view the commitment to resettling 110,000 total refugees in FY 2017 as a floor, rather than a ceiling, and should do everything in its power to increase the number of refugees admitted.

They know what we have been trying to say for weeks! Congress has the power to slow the invasion if they want to because the resettlement contractors have virtually no money of their own. 

They need your money to change your towns!

CAP continues:

Funding is critical, and the ball is in Congress’ court

While the Obama administration has stepped up to raise the numbers of refugees to be resettled, Congress has not, to date, provided a corresponding increase in the funds available to ensure that these individuals are able to resettle smoothly, find livelihoods, and become self-sufficient soon after arrival—a key goal of the U.S. refugee program.

The funding Congress appropriated for FY 2016 was based on an estimate of only 75,000 refugees being resettled. When the administration raised its target to 85,000 refugees, Congress did not increase the funding to match. This means that over the past year, the government has had to resettle more refugees with fewer funds. To make matters worse, Congress will most likely only fund the government for the remainder of the calendar year using a continuing resolution—a stopgap, short-term funding bill rather than a full-year appropriation—likely holding the amount of funding for resettlement to FY 2016 levels. This will become all the more difficult to sustain as the number of refugees admitted grows to 110,000.

Take the Office of Refugee Resettlement, or ORR, as an example. This agency helps integrate newly arrived refugees into American life and society, providing financial and medical assistance, social work and case management, and language and job training programs. It also has primary responsibility for the housing and care of unaccompanied children who arrive in the United States. In FY 2016, the ORR received a little less than $1.7 billion to accomplish these tasks. With an increase in the numbers of both refugees being resettled and unaccompanied children arriving, however, ORR’s budget is stretched thin.

The Refugee Council USA (mentioned below) is the lobbying arm of the resettlement industry in Washington.

The administration’s FY 2017 budget, based on the original goal of resettling 100,000 refugees, calls for the ORR to receive about $2.2 billion, while Refugee Council USA—the main umbrella group for organizations working to resettle and protect refugees—has called for the ORR to receive $2.95 billion. Either way, Congress must come together to provide more funding to the agency.

The Continuing Budget Resolution as it now stands has barely half that much and we are urging Congress to cut even more deeply.

Keep calling them and tell them that you know they, the Republican leadership, hold the cards—not Obama!

We have written a lot about the Refugee Council USA and also about the Center for American Progress, so please use our search function if you want to learn more.

***On this ‘ceiling’ issue: for all the time I have been writing this blog, the industry has been working to make sure the ceiling is met. But, it is only a ceiling.  The President can, during the course of the year, go below the ceiling and in some earlier years a president has.  So it strikes me that if Donald Trump is elected, he could very well just (at minimum) go way below the ‘ceiling’ (tell his Secretary of State to slow it down) after he is inaugurated without even initiating a battle (over Obama’s last determination) in the opening months of his administration.

What makes a town desirable for refugee resettlement explains Blacksburg, VA resident

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 23, 2016

Blacksburg is one of the new refugee seeding sites being considered by the US State State Department.  Recently we learned that there are as many as 47 of them (according to the Reno Gazette-Journal).

melody-warnick

Author Melody Warnick. My questions for Ms. Warnick: How about if you love where you live and want to keep it from becoming something different. Why does keeping it just the way it is, the way one loves it, not as valuable a concept as changing it by changing its people?

Here an expert on loving where you live(!) tells us what she thinks are the features that a town might have that makes that town MOST attractive to the resettlement industry decision makers.

From Quartz (hat tip: Joanne):

In late July, I was one of more than 100 residents of Blacksburg, Virginia, crammed into the local library for the first meeting of the Blacksburg Refugee Partnership. We were there to find out what it would take to bring Syrian refugees to our small town in Virginia.

At first, I’d assumed that our town was too small and isolated to make a good home for refugees. But as a representative from Commonwealth Catholic Charities explained, we had a few things going for us: A university with steady employment opportunities [janitors—ed]. A community of Arabic speakers. And perhaps most importantly, people who really, really wanted to bring Syrian refugees here—not a given in Virginia, considering that the mayor of nearby Roanoke had gone on record saying he didn’t want them. [Poor Roanoke has a long history as a resettlement site, increased crime, social tension, etc., so the mayor is speaking from experience when he said he didn’t want MORE!—ed]

My town’s excitement over the possibility made me curious about the places in the US where refugees are most likely to thrive. During the 2016 fiscal year, the 10,000 Syrian refugees who fled their war-torn homeland for the United States have ended up all over the place—ranging from major cities like Chicago and Houston to more unexpected locations like Clearwater, Florida, and Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Here is Melody Warnick’s list of the features she thinks a refugee-welcoming town needs (go to the story, here, to see why):

Good public transportation

A culture of volunteerism

A mosque in town

A population that leans Democrat

A church-going tradition [these would be church-goers on the religious left—ed]

An entrepreneurial ecosystem

She quotes David Lubell of Welcoming America by way of explanation:
“If you take the example of Clarkston, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta, which has had a huge growth in its refugee population over the past 15 years, entrepreneurs come and create halal supermarkets.” [Oh yippee, where is PETA?—ed]

Chilly weather

A smaller population

You can read it all by clicking here.

She has forgotten two of the most important elements and those are whether the state  has a generous welfare system and has expanded Medicaid.

And, not to mention the most important element and that is whether there is a hardcore political activist group (or even just one or two people), or a Left-leaning Interfaith group, with a mission to change America by changing its people.

Update: How could I forget—if you have a meat packing plant nearby you go to the top of the list!

We know some of the newly targeted towns and they include:  Missoula, MT, Charleston, WV, Ithaca, NY, Rutland, VT, Northhampton, MA, Fayetteville, AR.  I know I’m missing dozens, so help me identify them all.

As of this writing, it appears that House Republicans are only going to try the same old ‘show vote’ again

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 22, 2016

I don’t know exactly what is happening. I don’t have any inside track, but since you all have been calling your members of Congress to defund the Refugee Admissions Program (Rep. Babin’s strategy is a good one), I need to tell you what some House Republicans proposed two days ago.

obama-smirk

Republican Congressional leaders have been enabling Obama for years. And, they are about to do it again on refugee funding. Why?

Go here to page 8 of HR 6071 (Title III Ensuring vetting of refugees to Keep Americans Safe).

It is the same old scam they tried to pull last year where the Director of the FBI and the Director of National Intelligence would certify that individual refugees from only Iraq and Syria would have to be ‘certified’ terror free.

This is what Senator Jeff Sessions said last year when Congress was addressing the same issue!

The Republican Congress decides how many are brought to America by how much funding they make available.

Senator Jeff Sessions last year:

There is only one true check now against the President going it alone: Congressional funding. In his annual budget request, the President asked for more than $1 billion to fund the Refugee Admissions Program. All Congress has to do is make clear that the President’s funding request will not be granted unless he meets certain necessary Congressional requirements – the first of which should be to make clear that Congress, not the President, has the final say on how many refugees are brought into the United States and from where.

Apparently negotiations are on-going between the House and Senate to get the Continuing Budget Resolution done so they can get home to campaign so they can get back in there in January and not do their work again next year.

Will let you know what I learn later today or tomorrow (you may know before me!).

See my tag ‘Where is Congress’ for everything I’ve written on the funding issue in recent weeks.
