Rand Paul: Why are we bringing in all these refugees (Iraqis in particular) and putting them on welfare?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 7, 2015

I know you are saying that isn’t the Senator Rand Paul you know now, but it was the Senator Paul in the wake of the discovery of Iraqi refugee terrorists found in his home town and convicted in Kentucky just a few years ago.

As a matter of fact, I was thrilled!  He was the first sitting US Senator I had ever heard speak publicly and critically about the Refugee Resettlement Program of the UN/US State Department.

Norquist and Paul

Did Grover Norquist get to Rand and tell him to shut up about Iraqi refugees in addition to supporting amnesty?



Here is our complete archive in which we mention Paul’s statements on refugees.  Please note that his home town of Bowling Green is completely swamped with refugees and we have a lengthy archive on problems there as well.

Here is what we said in 2013 when the Senator was roundly criticized by a Leftwing immigration reporter at the HuffPo.  This is what Huffington Post reporter, Elise Foley, quotes Paul saying:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said on Wednesday that the U.S. should be skeptical of accepting refugees, from Iraq in particular, because they take welfare and could plan attacks on American soil.


“It’s one thing to have a big heart and invite people to our country, and if you do it in a small fashion, the churches and the people take care of them, that’s one thing. But like in my town in particular, they bring ’em in and there is someone whose job and expertise is to sign them up for welfare as soon as they get here.”

There is more and links to other information on Paul.

So what happened to that Rand Paul?

Grover was a promoter of Iraqi refugees!

When we began writing RRW in 2007, one of our first stunning revelations was that Republican guru Grover Norquist was running around Washington lobbying for the US to bring in the Iraqis.   120,000 plus Iraqi refugees later, they are coming in at a rate of 20,000 a year (approximately 68% of them are Muslims split fairly evenly between Shiites and Sunnis).

They are receiving a boatload of welfare (see beginning on page 107 of the latest ORR Annual Report to Congress) higher than many other refugee ethnic groups.  So Senator Paul was right about that—we bring’em in and sign’em up for welfare!

For new readers, our complete Grover Norquist archive is here.

If you happen to see Paul on the campaign trail, ask him why he dropped his earlier criticism of the refugee resettlement program which is changing American towns and cities under the direction of the United Nations and Obama’s State Department.

  1. […] we mention these convicted refugee terrorists.   In fact, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul’s fleeting criticism of the refugee program was surely inspired by his anger at the time about this […]

    READY FOR RINO RAND? Mitch McConnell-backing Rand Paul¹s Top 12 Embarrassing Flip-Flops ing-rand-pauls-top-12-embarrassing-flip-flops/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_med ium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+NewZeal+%28New+Zeal+Blog%29 Ted Cruz “Anointed” To Bring Spoils of War To The Priests /

    This is an article you need to read because it is indicative of the deception of the end-time apostasy that Jesus warned about in Matthew 24:24. Cruz’s father is part of the “dominion movement” that became popular in the 1970’s and 1980’s and promoted by false prophets like Earl Paulk, Jr. However, in this article a “wrinkle” has been added to it that comes out the prosperity movement (have you noticed all these “movements” that have cropped up in this generation – maybe need to apply “Imodium”), that is, the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous – Proverbs 13:22.

    That verse does not teach that the wealth of this earth is going to be taken from sinners and given to the dominionist’s who think THEY are going to conquer the world and hand it over to Christ at His coming. Cruz’s father is teaching a bogus doctrine that the Kings and Priests of the Dominion Church will reign through government and that the priests shall anoint or have anointed Ted Cruz for this purpose. That is a dangerous ideology for the Kingdom of God shall come upon this earth regardless of what man does to either stop or advance it and it has nothing to do about a so-called prosperity movement.

    The book of Daniel says this about the coming kingdom of our Lord;

    Daniel 2: 44-45 NKJV

    44 And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. 45 Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold‹the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.²

    Be not deceived by “appearances” that seem right, but as we are told to do – to test all spirits to know their origin – I John 4: 1.

    I am not implying that Ted Cruse is not a Christian, but Christians can be deceived by false doctrine that to them seems biblical.

    There a great number of mistakes we are making which will be to the detriment of our country. Keep up with the Resettlement Watch site. Somalis, Koreans, our Mexican problem seems to have faded into the background. California issuing drivers licenses to10,00, the National Labor Relations Board, the AFL passing  adding a note in their constitution maybe that citizens and non citizens will be protected by union rules. The violations of our constitution and the surprising lack of action by congress and its failure to enforce the constitution is alarming. Will Hillary Clintons e-mails disappear just as the contempt of congress situation by the IRS agent has faded away? Are there other examples of this. Equal Justice for all….really?Don Philllips
