One more outrageous story is making the rounds. NoisyRoom (the progressive hunter) has this (below), and then links to a Breitbart story from Thursday. (Hat tip: Joanne):
There has not been a ‘refugee’ crisis in the US in my lifetime. The one on our Southern border is a manufactured crisis by Obama and the Progressive Left to employ the Cloward and Piven Strategy*** of overwhelming the system until it collapses, allowing for the Marxist reformation of government. Enter the Office of Refugee Resettlement. ORR is the government agency that is streamlining the entrance of illegal aliens into the US and them assisting them with resettlement. They work with other government funded agencies, such as the Crittenton Services and Foster Family Agency in Murrieta, California. This agency just placed an ad that is offering over 6k a month to house illegal alien children:
Crittenton Services is a relatively new subcontractor of the USCCB, Catholic Charities of Los Angeles and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, check it out here! See also Catholic Bishops hands in your pockets.
Noisy Room: I guess when compassion and guilt aren’t motivating enough, you can always try and bribe Americans.
Our complete archive on ‘unaccompanied minors’ is here.
*** Don’t know about Cloward and Piven? Visit this postwe wrote in 2009 to help explain how refugees and migrants generally are being used to bring down our system of government. Obama only has two years left to “change” America and they (progressives/government agencies like ORR/churches etc.) are now on the move to get it done.
Update: Just got word that this MD site has been rejected—where else might they go in MD? Ask your local government if they have gotten a letter!
Maryland’s only Republican Congressman is on record opposing the choice. And, LOL! knowing those Carroll County Tea Party-type activists there will be one hell-u-va protest if the feds go forward with this one! There is a lot of pent-up anger here in Maryland!
WESTMINSTER, Md. —The Obama administration is eyeing a vacant Army reserve facility in Westminster as a possible shelter for illegal immigrant children, and it’s meeting strong opposition from local officials and at least one member of Congress.
There were no demonstrations yet in Westminster, but the opposition is just as strong as elsewhere in the country. Elected officials in Carroll County vehemently oppose using a vacant Army reserve building on Malcolm Drive to house the children, even temporarily. The Department of Health and Human Services would handle the operation.
“I don’t think it’s the right place. I don’t think it’s the right time. The bottom line is the community doesn’t want it. The representatives in Congress don’t want it the Department of Health and Human Services shouldn’t be looking at it,” said U.S. Rep. Andy Harris, R-District 1.
Harris said if the Obama administration ignores the local opposition, he’s prepared to use his position on the House Appropriations Committee to stop the proposal from going further.
Here is the testimony of Linda Hartke, CEO of the multi-million dollar federal contractor LIRS. All good Lutherans need to know what LIRS is doing in your name. She wants ORR to create more opportunities for NGOs to take care of the “children” and get them legal representation. And, of course they would be happy to get a larger federal grant to do that work in partnership with the government.
We have written many posts on LIRS, click here for our complete archive. Back in May, LIRS began a lobbying campaign for the “children” called #ActOfLove, here.
And, here, are all of our posts on the ‘unaccompanied minors’ crisis.
As I open every post on the USCCB (today and in the future), I will remind readers for the umpteenth time right at the top of the post! that as the largest of nine major federal refugee contractors*** the US CONFERENCE OF CATHOLIC BISHOPS’ migrant program is almost exclusively funded by US taxpayer dollars (Caesar’s dollars):
Would some reporter with a national readership please report this hard truth! Or, are you all as much afraid of them as Members of Congress are?
My frustration level goes through the roof when I see stories like this one, where author Ryan Lovelace (who has done great reporting on the topic of the ‘unaccompanied minors’) at National Review Onlineis wondering why and how the Bishops are working with Obama.
Other than on the issue of abortion, the US Bishops are as far left as Obama is! Of course Obama is reaching out to them, but there is no reaching necessary! He owns them!
Back to the USCCB’s pow-wow with the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR in HHS) and the US State Department’s head honcho—Asst. Secretary of State for Population Refugees and Migration….it is all about the people they “serve” (the migrants of all stripes) with your money!
From Breitbart (illegal migrants are all Jesus now):
The 2014 National Migration Conference (NMC), held in Washington, D.C., is about to come to a close on Thursday, July 10. The event, which clearly highlights the partnership between the Catholic Church in the United States and the U.S. government on the issue of aid for immigrants, is occurring this year at a time when the U.S. is being flooded with thousands of illegal immigrant children and teens. It is also a time when the U.S. Catholic bishops have called upon the Obama administration and Congress to protect the unaccompanied young illegals crossing the U.S. border. [The USCCB has a CONTRACT with ORR to take care of the “children” (their clients).—ed]
The conference, hosted by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services (USCCB/MRS), the Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLIN), and Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA), has been focused on advancing “the life and dignity of the human person in our work with immigrants, migrants, refugees, unaccompanied migrant children, victims of human trafficking, and other vulnerable people on the move.”
Though the conference’s program offers workshops that are undoubtedly helpful to those assisting legal immigrants to the United States, what is missing is a clear differentiation between “legal” and “illegal” immigration. In fact, in reading the program, one gets the impression that every immigrant – legal or not – could also be a “refugee.”
The program describes a conference that offers both a teaching component – sharing and applying Catholic social teaching on migration – and one for advocacy in which participants are prepared and organized “to carry the message on these migration issues both to Congress in Washington, D.C., and to constituencies and political leaders in their own communities.”
Eskinder Negash, director of the ORR (and former Vice President of USCRI, a contractor which is 99% funded by you!) said forget the US taxpayer and don’t worry about the flood of migrants at the border.
Americans, Negash said, should not be concerned with the taxpayer funding and the massive flooding of illegal immigrants.
Besides Negash revolving in the door between jobs as a government funder of grants (at ORR) and private contractor, Anne Richard (also speaking at the pow-wow this past week) who runs the State Department arm of the refugee resettlement program, also came to her government position from a contractor (IRC). Shouldn’t there be a law prohibiting this practice?
