Refugee Resettlement Watch

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.

Readers! Implore Rep. Gowdy to hold hearings and shine the light on this monstrosity!

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.

    I’ve written Trey about holding hearings, but haven’t heard back. I’ve also written my state reps. I got a constituent letter this morning from my local senator who has been working on this too.

    Senator Shane Martin wrote:

    I wish to inform you of my actions relative to the proposed resettlement of refugees in Spartanburg. Since Mid-March, I have been emailing Congressman Trey Gowdy’s office information regarding this issue. Congressman Gowdy has demanded answers from the US Secretary of State, John Kerry, and I applaud him for that. You can read his letter here: https://gowdy.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/gowdy-requests-information-spartanburg-refugee-resettlement-program

    Some of my colleagues in the SC House of Representatives have asked Governor Nikki Haley, who must approve the program in the first place, for additional information. Governor Haley is the only one in SC with the power to actually put a stop this and I hope that she takes a position on this issue soon!

    I have written to the SC Department of Social Services (DSS), the cabinet agency responsible for conducting this program in SC, if it indeed is carried out. SC DSS must follow several federal statutes which require specific accountability measures. You may read my email here by clicking here. http://www.senatormartin.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/MartinDSSLetter.pdf

    I have received no reply from SC DSS, and to my knowledge, no other inquiries have been answered either. This only serves to heighten my concern. I will work to keep this issue in the public eye, through media and other outlets, until we all get some answers from the government officials responsible for this program. I will update you further as we get more information, and with your help, we will do all we can to stop the importation of dangerous individuals into our hometown.

  9. The problem is that not many people are willing to inform themselves and read this post. It is amazing.

    Outrageous it is that every American is not outraged at this open wound that bleeds our resources steadily, every day possible, in every way possible, at the expense of us all, especially the neediest citizens. And the misery doled out those helpless souls is controlled by those who claim to act in their best interests!

    Like virtually everything this administration does, a new pain begins daily and as we scurry to address that issue a new fire is begun in another area and we are distracted once again by the planned attacks on our freedom, liberty and ability to fight.

    The changes in our country are done in such a way as to effect permanent damage, and are usually begun covertly, out of sight, and by the time we react to them they are well on the way to becoming irreversible.

    Immigration is our achilles heel. Combined with the coordinated threat of the Muslim caliphate, It is the business of evil George Soros and his family to use offshore secrecy to direct equally evil cohorts in this country and outside to unravel us. There is no protection for the several hundred million Americans whose elected representatives are seemingly powerless, whether by design or stupidity.

    And, incredibly, now they are pushing a replacement for Obama who has the same pedigree, the same mentors, the same corrupted mind and ability to lie, and she spent election evening
    in 2009 at a gathering in George Soros NYC apartment. (She once said that we need more people like Soros).

    I’ll be damned if I’ll stop resisting them, and will continue to work to expose how those responsible are in concert, year after year, and try to turn their direct supporters back into real Americans.

    And simultaneously work to expose “our” elected reps who, with few exceptions, are nothing but paper tigers who pretend to be role models, but deceive us by simply aiding and abetting our internal and external enemies!
