Gowdy asks the right questions for his district, but what about for other secretly chosen towns?
Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 14, 2015
April 14th: More on this story at World Net Daily today.
Here is more on that extremely well-thought-out letter Rep. Trey Gowdy sent to Secretary of State Kerry yesterday in which he asks the same questions every town in America confronted with the arrival of a US State Department refugee contractor asks. His questions could apply as well to those already overloaded cities wanting to know who is deciding that they get more refugees than they can handle.
Here is Fitsnews (hat tip: Joanne) on the Gowdy letter:
Specifically, Gowdy grilled Kerry on how the planned resettlement came into being, which state agencies approved it, how much government funding the project is receiving, what benefits the refugees would be eligible to receive, when the first refugees were scheduled to arrive, how the refugees were selected and what sort of long-term obligations their presence would impose on taxpayers.
Rep Gowdy! Hold hearings in your House Judiciary subcommittee (Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security) and help, not just your district, but ultimately every town in America get those answers!
Our contention is that every town confronted with the nine federal contractors and their 350 subcontractors working secretively is entitled to have all the facts on the table for public discussion in advance, and let the citizens decide if it is right for their town!
Spotlight on National Immigration Forum
Fitsnews has this bit at the end of its piece that I found intriguing about the involvement of the NIF:
Props to Gowdy and Hicks [SC Rep Donna Hicks] for shining the light on this issue – as well as to Upstate activist Christina Jeffrey, who has been organizing opposition to the plan.
As we noted in our report, “previous resettlement campaigns couched as ‘evangelical’ efforts have in reality been front groups for liberal campaigns like the National Immigration Forum – a group that’s received funding from organizations affiliated with billionaire liberal financier George Soros.
We have written previously about the National Immigration Forum (NIF) and its leader Ali Noorani who we posited may be being helped by Grover Norquist. See this 2013 post we wrote on NIF (apologies for calling them the Christian RIGHT, we know now they are the Christian LEFT). There are other posts in which we mention Pakistani Ali Noorani here.
See that Jeb Bush was on NIF’s board when I wrote that post!
Go here for contact information on how to reach one of Rep. Trey Gowdy’s offices and ask that he hold hearings on the Refugee Resettlement Program which, in the last almost 8 years I’ve followed it, has never been scrutinized by Congress. I’ll bet in its 35 year history, Congress has never asked any questions!
For new readers: Go here for the whole history of the Spartanburg controversy.
