More rocks and more hard places for faith-based groups taking federal money

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 29, 2015

As we have reported previously, US refugee resettlement contractors which live off of millions and millions of your grant dollars are being faced with Obama Administration changes in policy that are forcing them to ultimately choose between principles of faith and cold hard federal cash that keeps them alive.

Here is another story that tells us about the rock and a hard place groups like the US Conference of Catholic Bishops find themselves in now that they have gotten in bed with ‘Caesar.’

I don’t think this will be as great a hardship for them as the earlier edict from the White House that the Bishops and others taking care of the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ must offer abortion services, but it is nonetheless a reminder of the perils of “church” groups becoming beholden to the federal government.

 

From Breitbart (hat tip: Julia).  BREAKING: Obama to Force Faith-Based Grant Recipients to Hire LGBTs

The Obama Administration is poised to require faith-based recipients of federal grants to accept applications from LGBT individuals, according to a report published today by the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam).

By executive order last summer, President Obama amended the Johnson-era federal order on non-discrimination in hiring by federal contractors to include non-discrimination based on “sexual orientation and gender identity.” That order has roiled faith-based groups.

A confidential source tells C-Fam that the White House has directed federal agencies to include “sexual orientation and gender identity” as protected classes in all grant agreements.

[….]

Faith-based groups, still grappling with the contracting question, are being caught off guard by this new policy on grants. None of the groups contacted by C-Fam were aware of the new policy.

The office of Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, who also heads the Bishop’s committee on religious freedom, wouldn’t comment. Neither would Anthony Picarello, General Counsel of the Catholic Bishop’s Conference. Catholic agencies would be hit particularly hard by such a change.

At the time of the executive order last summer, two Bishop-Chairmen of the USCCB said the order was “unprecedented and extreme and should be opposed.”

See this post earlier in the year about how much each of the nine major refugee contractors receive from the federal treasury (numbers are from FY2012).  They could not exist without this massive infusion into their coffers of your tax dollars.

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service bringing refugees/other migrants to Washington to lobby

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 29, 2015

They will surely be asking for more refugees and more taxpayer goodies, and you are most likely paying for this three-day shindig.  

This is just a reminder of how organized they are as they work day and night to plant immigrant ‘seedlings’ in your towns and cities.  This event will also train participants to go home to promote “welcoming” communities.  They will be learning the fine art of community organizing, as well as being paraded around Capitol Hill!

Linda Hartke

Linda Hartke is the CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. A look at a recent Form990 indicates that Hartke makes over $250,000 a year and 5 other employees are in the 6-figure range. Doing well by doing good? Her bio is here: http://lirs.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/LIRS_LindaHartkeBio.pdf

For our many new readers, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) is one of nine major federal contractors that call themselves VOLAGS (short for Voluntary Agencies) which they most decidedly are not!

They are all mostly funded by taxpayer dollars.

How rich is LIRS?

I checked the most recent Form990 for LIRS and this is what I learned.   They took in $48,392,082 from gifts, contributions and grants and $46,414,735 came from government grants—that means from you, the taxpayer.  Only 4% of their funds are privately raised.  So you can bet that you are paying for 90 refugees and other MIGRANTS to lobby in Washington in a few weeks!

(Although it is possible that some rich Leftwing foundation, or a Soros affiliate is paying for this!)

Here (and below) is their press release announcing the lobbying campaign.  I wonder if they will need extra security in Baltimore as we learned during the recent Baltimore riots that the local African Americans aren’t too fond of immigrants.

BALTIMORE, May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) will host the 2015 Migrant and Refugee Leadership Academy, a three-day event for migrants and former refugees focused on building advocacy, community organizing, and leadership skills. The event will take place in Baltimore and Washington, DC on June 16-18.

This will be the third annual Academy for LIRS, one that marks an important expansion to include migrant leaders for the first time. [Editor:  that must mean illegal aliens!] The Academy will equip participants with legislative advocacy and leadership enrichment training to become strong advocates for migrant and refugee issues. Through the experience, participants will be equipped to mobilize and engage in sustained advocacy for creating more welcoming local communities.

Ninety participants, including nine planning committee members and training facilitators – some of whom are former refugees and migrants – were selected from a pool of applicants with demonstrated leadership experience, strong ties to their local communities, and a desire to mobilize in support of pro-migrant and refugee policies. The participants hail from 33 states and represent 22 nationalities of origin. Each individual’s inspiring story of overcoming hardship to become a community leader illustrates the courage and perseverance of former migrants and refugees. The Academy schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, June 16th: Academy participants will take part in leadership skills enrichment and legislative advocacy training; discuss issues that bridge the immigration experience between migrants and refugees; and will prepare for visits with elected officials on Capitol Hill.

Wednesday, June 17th: Participants will travel to Washington, DC for a Lobby Day. Participants will meet with members of Congress to share their personal stories in an effort to support of pro-refugee legislation.

Thursday, June 18th: Participants will focus on strategies for sustained community engagement and collaborate on plans for on-going initiatives within their local communities. After they return home, the network of Migrant and Refugee Leadership Academy participants will continue to serve as a support system and resource for the work of each leader in his or her respective community.

For more information about the Migrant and Refugee Leadership Academy, please contact Folabi Olagbaju at 410-625-6744. Media interested in attending Capitol Hill meetings on June 17th may contact Miji Bell, 410-230-2841.

Go here for more on what we have said about Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.   Here is a list of LIRS subcontractors in 23 states.  This is the same refugee contractor that attempted (unsuccessfully because Wyomingites revolted) to get an office opened in Wyoming, the only state that doesn’t officially have a refugee program.

Jewish refugee resettlement agency: Let’s bring Rohingya Muslims to Pittsburgh (to increase diversity!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 28, 2015

I’ve been telling you that the resettlement contractors are now going to push Rohingya Muslims on us in a big way.

Just two days ago we reported that the New York Times was on the bandwagon and you will be seeing more and more articles like this one at newspapers where you live!  The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette had wisely editorialized saying that the Rohingya migration crisis is Asia’s problem.  The Jewish group begs to differ.

Leslie Aizeman

From Left: JF&CS Refugee Services Director, Leslie Aizenman, Secretary of State for the U.S. Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, Anne Richard and Allegheny County Chief Executive, Rich Fitzgerald. I’m guessing that County Executive Fitzgerald is on board (or was on board) with diversifying Pittsburgh in 2012. https://jfcspgh.wordpress.com/2012/07/10/jfcs-welcomed-anne-richard-assistant-secretary-of-state/

What is so maddening to me is that no where in this opinion piece, by the Director of Refugee & Immigrant Services Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Pittsburgh, does she use the ‘M’ word.

The average American reading this will have no idea that the Rohingya are very fundamentalist Muslims who are arriving (illegally from Burma and Bangladesh) in countries like Indonesia and Malaysia (Muslim countries) and are not wanted there either.

So tell me why Pittsburgh will benefit from more of this kind of diversity?

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

In response to Asia’s Migrants: More Boat People Deserve Help From Those Nearby (May 20 editorial): We at Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Pittsburgh agree that there is a role for the United States to play in helping to save the lives of refugees, such as the Rohingya from Burma.

The United States welcomes 70,000 refugees annually. Through a national network of resettlement agencies, these refugees find their way to local communities where they add to the local population, settle down, work and raise families.

If the Rohingya community and others like them were permitted to resettle in the United States like other refugees, JF&CS, along with its partner agencies, would welcome some of them to Pittsburgh. Such an effort would be consistent with the evolving municipal plans to promote Pittsburgh as a welcoming city.

We learned just in the last week that we have resettled 1,000 Rohingya Muslims in the US just this year and over ten years we resettled over 12,000 Burmese Muslims to the US (surely many of those are Rohingya), so we are already bringing in the Rohingya!

Ms. Aizenman continues:

The successful resettlement of the refugees in Pittsburgh depends on the support of the community — employers, landlords, social service providers, educators, medical professionals, public offices and community volunteers who understand the plight of these refugees and welcome and work to accommodate our newest Americans.

[….]

Refugee resettlement is one concrete way to save lives while increasing the diversity and population of Pittsburgh.

LESLIE AIZENMAN

Commenter, Rich Kowal, says what most sensible, thinking Americans believe:

We should be taking care of the our veterans, children and elderly citizens first before we worry about diversity.

See our Rohingya Reports category (179 posts going back 7 years!) outlining many (many!) reasons we should NOT be bringing Rohingya to your towns and cities.

Go here to find Pittsburgh resettlement contractors’ contact information (and all local contractors throughout the US).

***Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Pittsburgh is a subcontractor of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society one of the nine major contractors promoting the resettlement of 65,000 (mostly Sunni Muslim) Syrians to the US.   HIAS also wrote a report for which they received $35,000 from the obviously filthy rich JM Kaplan Fund to outline how to shut you up—to keep you from questioning what they are doing to America.   LOL!  The report is 30 pages long so they were paid over $1000 a page for not much!

Population clock! US adds one international migrant every 33 seconds!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 28, 2015

marching figures

Reader Diane sent this link to US and World population clocks at the US Census Bureau. 

We should go back from time to time to see if the net international migrant number goes up or down (from the 33 seconds it is at present).

There is lots of really interesting data here!

This is posted in our ‘where to find information’ category.

Back to business tomorrow!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 27, 2015

I’ve been in Washington all day working on our cause and came home and was blown away when I saw that thousands and thousands of readers  visited the post I wrote last evening about the plan to teach Arabic in Nashville schools.  It went viral somehow, so I hope a few of you called the Metro Nashville Public Schools and let them know what you think.

Also, apologies for not being here to post your many comments in a timely fashion, or to answer your many e-mails.   Tomorrow should be a better day.

If you didn’t see it, check out World Net Daily today about how the resettlement contractors and their rich friends want to be sure to head off any “pockets of resistance” to their plans to seed your towns with “New Americans.”

So it begins…Nashville schools to teach Arabic

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 26, 2015

And, in case you didn’t know, Arabic is the number one language of refugees entering the US right now.

Nashville Director of Schools Jesse Register: “…helps meet the demands of our increasingly diverse city.”

From The Tennessean (hat tip: Joanne):

Starting this fall, Metro Nashville Public Schools will begin offering Arabic language classes.

The creation of the classes expands on the district’s foreign language offerings of Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, French, Latin and German, according to a press release from the district.

All of the Arabic classes will be offered in grades 7-12 and are being installed in six South Nashville schools. The area is one of the most diverse in the district and includes a high number of English Language Learners.

[….]

The six schools were chosen based on an audit of students’ home languages. Each of the schools has students that speak Arabic as their primary language, and beginning Arabic and heritage Arabic classes will be taught for the varying abilities of students.

For more information, I wrote about Arabic coming to Maryland schools here in 2011.  I don’t think the plan ever advanced.  I guess I better find out!

By the way, we told you here in 2014, that Nashville’s public schools are a wreck thanks to the large numbers of impoverished immigrants in the city.  Maybe those immigrant kids should be focusing on learning basic education skills including learning to speak and write ENGLISH well!

Nashville has been a targeted resettlement city for a long time.  See our whole Nashville category, here, to learn more.  Wow! This is our 80th post on Nashville.

Oh brother, now the New York Times is on the Rohingya bandwagon

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 26, 2015

Here we go again, the media drumbeat to bring more refugees to America is sounding!

The Leftwing media is made up of a bunch of sheep as they follow one another with the same ‘news’ stories designed to advance a political agenda—in this case they are promoting the resettlement of Rohingya Muslims to America.

When the NYT gets on the story, you know the propaganda is reaching critical mass!

Rohingya boat people arrive in Indonesia. Indonesia is a safe Muslim country and if they are legitimate asylum seekers they should be asking for asylum there. When we bring them to America we create a ‘pull factor’ and more will attempt the voyage.

Why is it a concern of the US that too many Muslims from Muslim Bangladesh are flowing to the Muslim countries of Malaysia and Indonesia?  Why can’t they just stay there, in the Muslim world, with their co-religionists?   Is it America’s job to take every poor Muslim (or every poor person for that matter) to your towns?

And, btw, just as we are preoccupied with the lobbying push to resettle 65,000 Syrians (mostly Muslims), I guess the UN and the US State Department are going to start slipping in larger numbers of Rohingya behind our backs.

Here is the NYT beating the drum with its sob story:

There are at least 200,000 Rohingya migrants from Myanmar [aka Burma—ed] already in Bangladesh, and only 32,600 of them have been granted formal protection as refugees fleeing persecution, according to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Far fewer, perhaps only several hundred, have been resettled from refugee camps in Bangladesh over the past decade and allowed to begin new lives in other countries.

In Malaysia, those determined to be refugees and therefore eligible for resettlement, a process that could take years, would be joining more than 45,000 Rohingya who are already classified as refugees and are waiting to be taken in by another country. They receive no government aid while they wait, nor can they legally take jobs to support themselves.

About 1,000 Rohingya refugees were resettled in the United States in the last year.

I told you here in 2013 that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops asked the US State Department for more Rohingya to resettle.   My research indicates that we have admitted over 12,000 “Burmese Muslims” in the last 10 years—surely most are Rohingya.

The NYT continues:

The Rohingya, a stateless Muslim people who have long faced discrimination and have been deprived of basic rights in Myanmar, are likely to meet the criteria for refugee status under international law, namely having “a well-founded fear” of persecution for reasons of race, religion or nationality in their home country.

Such an effort, however, has yet to materialize.

According to the agreement hammered out last week by the foreign ministers of Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, none of those countries agreed to host any refugees permanently.

Australia’s prime minister, Tony Abbott, said Thursday that his country would not take any refugees from the current exodus.

Read more here.

Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia don’t want them—-why do we?

See our Rohingya Reports category with its 178 previous posts and its 178 reasons why this is a problematic resettlement.

Planned refugee resettlement in Spartanburg, SC presents watershed moment

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 26, 2015

What do I mean by that?

I mean that because federal resettlement contractor, World Relief (National Association of Evangelicals), decided to target that town, of all places, we have made an enormous leap in our understanding of how the secretive UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions and Resettlement program operates.

Bauman

Stephan Bauman is CEO of World Relief and one of 5 employees making a six-figure salary largely on your dime while advocating for 65,000 Syrians be resettled in your towns and cities! Photo: http://worldrelief.org/leadership

Additionally we are gaining a model for citizen involvement and a blueprint for what needs to happen going forward.

Spartanburg also ties in to the much larger issue in Washington right now—-should we do what the UN wants and admit 65,000 Syrians to the US in the next year or so?  World Relief is on record with a resounding—YES!

And, to top it all off, since Spartanburg happens to fall in the district of the chairman of the subcommittee responsible for the US Refugee Program, we hold out hope that oversight hearings will be scheduled soon to begin to review a program that has literally become a multi-billion dollar a year industry that is way too large and way too secretive.

Spartanburg has it all!

I think we will look back at this point in time with Spartanburg as the point where the history of refugee resettlement in America is changed forever.  I say that because there is a sea change occurring before our eyes as the public is awakening to the problems with out-of-control-immigration of every kind.

(For background see our original post with links for updates.)

Spartanburg has the most important element when a town first gets word that it has been selected by an unelected body—a resettlement contractor like World Relief—to ‘welcome’ third worlders to town.   It has an energized and active grassroots citizenry willing to demand answers and not shrink from the task when the ‘religious’ Left begins hurling accusations that anyone asking questions is automatically mean-spirited or downright racist.

One of those leading voices in Spartanburg is Dr. Christina Jeffrey who penned an excellent letter to the editor over the weekend in response to a scurrilous attack on Rep. Trey Gowdy.   The letter writer, She D’Ambrosio, said this about the Congressman:

Wish I had a job that I could waste time and taxpayer dollars on useless crap.

Dr. Jeffrey responded with this (emphasis is mine):

I read with dismay a GoUpstate.com comment, reprinted in the May 21 Herald-Journal, attacking Congressman Trey Gowdy for wasting time/money investigating a refugee program. The writer’s complaint showed a complete misunderstanding of our federal system.

However, since I first asked our congressman to look into the matter of Syrians possibly being welcomed into Spartanburg County, maybe she should blame me. A March 9 Herald-Journal article mentioned Syrians as one group that might resettle here. The State Department reports that 92 percent of Syrian refugees are Muslim (www.wrapsnet.org/Reports/InteractiveReporting/tabid/393/Default.aspx). (It has since been reported that no Syrians will be among these refugees.)

Gowdy is the ideal official to look into the Refugee Resettlement Program (RRP); not only is he our congressman, he is chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security and responsible for overseeing refugee programs.

Because Secretary of State John Kerry insists that much of the information relative to the RRP is “proprietary,” aka secret, the Gowdy committee will need to hold hearings to get answers. This will take a long time.

There is more read it all.

Call Rep. Trey Gowdy’s office and ask him to demand transparency by the federal government and its contractors when resettling refugees. Ask him to hold hearings on the whole program! Call 202-225-6030

Lesson to our readers:  Keep hounding them for answers!  You have every right to know what is being planned for your town!

World Relief’s own documents indicate they have plans to resettle Syrians to Spartanburg

Do they expect us to believe that they (World Relief) would go on record with the US Senate as one of six supposedly religious government contractors asking for 65,000 Syrians to be resettled very soon and at the same time say that none would go to Spartanburg?

We have the FY2015 Spartanburg ABSTRACT that World Relief submitted to Washington in its quest for funding and it specifically states that refugees would be resettled in Spartanburg from:  Burma, Colombia, Congo, Cuba, Iraq, Sudan and Syria.

The Abstract tells how many refugees, and from where, your town can accommodate, and what amenities your town has to offer the refugees.

All of you should continue to try to get copies of the Abstract for your town.  (See list of local contractors near you).

Based on feedback we are getting from those who have asked, citizens are being told they can’t have them and in some cases the contractor is playing dumb and pretending that they don’t know what the caller is looking for.  We think the word has gone out nationally to keep this important information from you.

If you continue to be rebuffed, ask your Congressman or US Senators to get it for you!

Our goal going forward must be to demand that Congress stop the secrecy and require that these documents about your town be public information!

If you haven’t called Rep. Trey Gowdy yet to ask him to hold hearings, please do so.  If you have already called, do it again!

About the photo and World Relief’s finances:  I checked a recent Form990 for World Relief and learned that they received gifts, grants and contributions for that year in the amount of $54,777,404.  $41,161,003 was from government grants.  They could not exist without that 75% in taxpayer funding they receive.   Their salaries are not as outrageous as other contractors, one in particular, David Miliband, the CEO of the International Rescue Committee pulls down an annual salary of nearly a half a million dollars to run a charity!

Endnote:  Is your church, as a partner to World Relief, supporting the importation of 65,000 Syrians to America right now?  Go here to have a look!

Congress seeking answers about how many asylum seekers have terror connections

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 25, 2015

This is all I have and no time today to do a search.  Since the letter is not linked, it may be older news that the reporter at the Washington Free Beacon has just found and wishes to disseminate further.  No matter because it gives me an opportunity to link a story about how Somalis skip around the world and end up on our southern border.

Who is on the bus? Somalis caught at the border and moved to a detention facility. http://www.tpnn.com/2015/05/13/video-dhs-caught-moving-somali-muslim-illegals-into-california/

It was only ten days ago that we had a report of a busload of asylum-seeking Somalis being moved to a California detention center, here.

BTW, the difference between “refugees” and “asylum” seekers is that we pick up the refugees abroad and bring them here, and then sign them up for their social services.  Asylum seekers get here on their own steam and either enter illegally or overstay a visa and apply for asylum (claiming they will be persecuted if they return home).  Once granted asylum they are eligible for all the welfare goodies too!

Here is the Washington Free Beacon story:

Congress is demanding that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) release documents detailing how many foreigners seeking asylum in the United States have been found to have ties to terror groups, according to a recent letter sent to the agency by leading lawmakers.

The letter comes on the heels of revelations by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that at least 638 aliens seeking asylum in America have been found to have connections to terrorists.

This “recent disclosure regarding the numbers of aliens found to have a ‘credible fear’ in cases where the terrorism bar to asylum eligibility may have applied raised the concern that hundreds of known and suspected aliens with terrorist connections may be attempting to take advantage of our country’s asylum system,” according to the letter, sent by leaders of four House committees on national security, the judiciary, and government reform.

There is more, read it all.

One Somali’s great travel adventures

When I wrote this post, I mentioned the globe-trotting Somalis who pay huge sums of money to get to our southern border.  Reader Leo found this account of one Somali’s travel itinerary.

The first question I have is why didn’t the hero of this improbable tale ask for asylum in the first safe country he entered?  That is the internationally understood method to request asylum.  Instead, obviously with buckets of money, he traveled to the US Southern border.

He is here now, has been granted asylum, and wants to bring the weeping wife and 12 kids to join him!

From The Other Phoenix:

Long sob story you can read yourself, then this:

Hilowle’s wife wept. She told her husband to escape, taking only the $80 and 20 Somali schilling in his pocket. At the time, a dollar was equal 35,000 schillings. Hilowle’s wife told him he had to leave, because if he died then the entire family would lose their financial support.

World traveler and now US refugee extraordinaire, Aden Hilowle, was initially cared for by Catholic Charities in Arizona.

It took eight days to reach Ethiopia and contact his friends. His father sent him $14,000 from the sale of Hilowle’s house. [He had a house to sell?  But what about wifey?—ed]

Hilowle contacted a human smuggler. For $14,000, he could get a passport and a visa to Italy, but for $7,000 he could get a visa to Cuba, from the smuggler. From Cuba, he could go to the U.S. Hilowle left Ethiopia on Sept. 15, 2009 for Cuba.

He said he flew to Dubai, Moscow, Cuba and finally Ecuador for another $2,000. From Ecuador he traveled to Columbia in the back of a semi-truck with 45 other people.

“I was nearly to die,” he said.

He traveled from Columbia to Panama, where he was detained for three months and learned Spanish.

Next, he traveled through Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala in the backs of commercial trucks.

Once, he thought he would asphyxiate. The entire truck was incredibly hot and the air was stifling. When the two drivers opened the back of the truck, Hilowle told them in Spanish he wouldn’t go back in the truck because he thought he was going to die. They threatened to leave him on the side of the road.

At the border check points the drivers locked Hilowle into a fold-up bunk bed. The room between the bed and the wall was so small Hilowle had to place his elbow against the bottom of the bed so he could breathe.

After enduring four check points, Hilowle refused to get back into the fold up bed. A police officer caught Hilowle, but the truck drivers bribed him, he said. The police officer took the money and offered to drive Hilowle to the border in his car. By the time they reached the border, they were friends. The officer said he too would like to go to America.

Hilowle traveled through Mexico from Guatemala via tourist bus, foot, plane and car. On March 3, 2010, around 5 p.m., Hilowle arrived in the border town of San Luis, Ariz., where he sought political asylum.

American border officials handcuffed Hilowle.

Like many political asylees, he was sent to a federal detention center. He refers to it as a prison.

“They give you food and shelter but no freedom,” Hilowle said. “You can’t adapt to prison.”

On Jan. 31, 2011 Hilowle was released from detention. He was granted refugee status, he said, and Catholic Charities resettled him in Serrano Village.

Surely by now wife and children have joined Hilowle and everyone lives happily ever after (on the US taxpayer)!

We are so gullible.

Norwegian politician: Let’s send 10,000 Syrians to the Arctic!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 25, 2015

The beautiful Svalbard islands. According to wikipedia, “the midnight sun lasts 99 days and polar night 84 days.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Svalbard

 

 

I have so much to do on the farm today, I shouldn’t take a minute to post this, but it made me laugh and I hope it perks you up too!

Read this, and imagine now how the Leftists (normally eagerly “welcoming” refugees) must be reacting to the news that a pristine area with many national parks might be a great place to temporarily house 10,000 Syrians!  The resistance to resettling Syrians is not just in the US, but all over the western world citizens have had enough.

FrP politician Christian Eikeland: Let’s build a camp in Svalbard! Learn about the Fremskrittspartiet here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progress_Party_%28Norway%29

From The Nordic Page:

While the Conservatives (Høyre) and Frp oppose the idea of accepting 10,000 refugees for next two years due to hosting capacity in municipalities, FrP politician Christian Eikeland proposes an extra ordinary solution.

– If the Parliament accepts that Norway should accept 10,000 refugees by rejecting the capacity argument, then we can create a refugee camp in Svalbard, says Eikeland to NRK.

He notes that the camp can be used to host refugees from Syria for a temporary period till other munuicipalities offer a place.

Christian Eikeland is aware of the challenges related to the harsh weather and social conditions in Svalbard, but still believes it is possible.

Svalbard is a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. Situated north of mainland Europe, it is about midway between continental Norway and the North Pole.

[….]

The archipelago features an Arctic climate, although with significantly higher temperatures than other areas at the same latitude. The flora take advantage of the long period of midnight sun to compensate for the polar night. Svalbard is a breeding ground for many seabirds, and also features polar bears, reindeer, the Arctic fox, and certain marine mammals. Seven national parks and twenty-three nature reserves cover two-thirds of the archipelago, protecting the largely untouched, yet fragile, natural environment. Approximately 60% of the archipelago is covered with glaciers, and the islands feature many mountains and fjords.

Sounds beautiful!
