Wichita, Kansas schools floundering; 81 languages spoken in the school district

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 27, 2015

Red states turn blue as towns are colonized across the heartland!

If your community is considering “welcoming” refugees, please pay attention!  Spartanburg are you listening!

Once you open a resettlement office in your town, the flow will NOT end!

I tell every group I speak to that the schools will be the first place to suffer if you open your city or town to refugees!  See my Ten Things Your Town Needs to Know, here.  And, remember it isn’t just the cost to taxpayers that will be felt, it is that education for American kids will suffer as teachers struggle to bring non-English speaking students up to speed!

Local and state taxpayers will pay for interpreters required by a Clinton-era Executive Order!

From AP via Fox News Latino:

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – The Wichita school district, which already has one of the most ethnically diverse student bodies in the state, is trying to respond to the challenges presented by an influx of non-native English speaking children from Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.

The district has more than 350 students from other countries and 160 from other U.S. states who speak minimal English. Currently, 81 languages are spoken in the district, The Wichita Eagle reported. It has 11 classrooms spread throughout the district devoted to teaching recent immigrants and refugees.

[….]

Because federal law requires schools to provide information to parents in their preferred language, an Arabic speaker is on call to help teachers and others communicate with families. And the district contracts with Propio Language Services, an interpreting service that enables teachers and parents who speak any language to converse by phone through an interpreter.

[….]

The number of students speaking Vietnamese, Lao and Cambodian has decreased while students speaking languages from Africa and the Middle East have increased dramatically in recent years, Hale said. Many in the latter group are refugees from camps in central Africa, Iraq, Lebanon and Jordan.

The 10 main language groups, in order, are: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, Lao, Cambodian, the Chinese family of languages, Bengali, Urdu and Swahili.

By the way, Arabic is the number one language spoken by refugees entering the US right now.

Local tax payers will foot the bill!

Ten years ago, fewer than 4,300 Wichita students required ESOL — English for Speakers of Other Languages — service. This year, 9,316 students qualified for services, or about 18 percent of the district population.

Wichita school board members recently said they worry a new block-grant funding plan for schools will prevent the district from getting more funding to provide services for the refugees and other immigrants.

“That’s a huge concern, because we will not be receiving additional money for those students,” said board president Sheril Logan.

Who is responsible for wrecking the school system in Wichita?

Start with the refugee contractors!  Call them and ask for their “abstracts” to see what amenities they are bragging about and how many refugees they are bringing in.

Former Gitmo prisoners we sent to Uruguay as refugees demanding that the US give them money

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 27, 2015

This was one more case of the Obama Administration re-writing (perverting!) refugee law when they declared that Guantanamo Bay prisoners were really “refugees” to be resettled by the South American country of Uruguay.  We told you about the outrage here in December (see who in the Obama Administration made the call).

Now, the bloom is off the rose for Uruguay (the ‘refugees’ do not want to work) and the former prisoners expect you, the American taxpayer, to help them out financially.

From AP via USA Today (emphasis is mine):

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) — Four freed Guantanamo Bay detainees protested in front of the U.S. Embassy on Friday night, saying they were angry about being asked to leave a Uruguayan hotel that had been housing them and demanding Washington help them financially.

Former Gitmo prisoners (aka ‘refugees’) pray outside US Embassy in Montevideo.

Adel bin Muhammad El Ouerghi said he had been asked to leave the Metro hotel, a budget inn where he and some of the other five former detainees periodically stayed.

The four Syrians, one Tunisian and one Palestinian have been housed in a four-bedroom house in Uruguay’s capital since the government took them in after their release in December. But “we are too many to stay in the house,” said El Ouerghi, who spent much of the last few months at the hotel.

As a humanitarian gesture, the men were invited to resettle in this poor South American country of 3.3 million people by President Jose Mujica, who has since left office.

They allegedly had ties to al-Qaida and spent 12 years in the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. But they were never charged, and the U.S. released them because officials decided they were no longer a threat.

El Ouerghi said the men wanted to speak with the U.S. ambassador to Uruguay. He said the United States should help the men financially, an argument he and a few of the other former detainees have made repeatedly.

Citizens of Uruguay are disgusted!

While the men’s arrival to Uruguay was greeted by fanfare, the smiles and posing for pictures quickly turned to complaints and controversy. By their own admission, they have struggled to adjust, and on several occasions have complained about not getting enough help from Uruguay’s government.

In early February, a controversy erupted when people in Uruguay learned that the men had been offered jobs but did not take them.

More here.

Endnote:  Uruguay got a lot of publicity last year when the government said it would take in Syrian refugees, but it appears they got the first batch and said no more Muslim men!

Is the Left using Islam, or is it the other way around?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 27, 2015

That’s a question I think about from time to time.  I happen to think Islam is using the political Left, or no, more precisely, I believe that Islam will destroy the Left the first chance it gets, no matter which side is the number one user right now.

However, LOL!, I don’t spend too much time thinking about it because then one gets nothing done to try to stop them both!

Writing at American Thinker, J. Robert Smith attacks the conundrum in his thoughtful piece entitled: ‘Where the Left and Islam Intersect.’

In the name of Islam, ISIS fighters throw a gay man to his death from a rooftop. Why the silence from the Left? Why doesn’t the Left get it? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2914785/Thrown-death-gay-s-latest-abomination-one-expert-argues-images-betray-radical-Muslims-new-thirst-killing-justice.html

I’ve snipped a bit, but please read the whole thing.  Emphasis below is mine:

Curious how the godless left and Islam share a critical aim. They both wish to subjugate infidels, though how infidel is defined differs. But who the infidels are isn’t. We are, of course, the infidels. We of western virtues and values. We who hold to Judeo-Christian beliefs. We’re obstacles to glorious futures for both. Both want us consigned to dhimmitude. Yes, dhimmitude. That’s second class status, with tribute being paid for the privilege.

Marked differences and tensions exist between the left and Islam, to be sure. But is the left using Islam for its ends, and Islam — for the time being — willingly being used?

The enemy of my enemy is my friend

Today,… it isn’t just Western capitalism that the left wants Islam to sic. It’s the totality of Western Civilization. Leftism has expanded its agenda beyond Marx-focused economics. For the left to get us to dhimmitude, that means “deconstructing” our culture and society; upending our mores and traditions; shattering our institutions; demeaning faith and marginalizing the faithful. Its gains are evident all around us.

From Marx onward, the left has operated by a simple rule vis-à-vis Islam: the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

[….]

Most Americans have a hard time accepting that fellow citizens might knowingly act in ways injurious to the security and welfare of the nation. The 20th Century had more than a few Americans who worked to advance communism in opposition to vital national interests. In extreme cases, some Americans acted treasonously. Do the names Julius and Ethel Rosenberg ring a bell? How about Alger Hiss?

[….]

Not every American identifying with the left acts from malice. There are followers and fellow travelers. Your Aunt Jane may be a lefty, but she wouldn’t want harm to come to her country. There are gullible souls who think it’s all about Kumbaya. Spoken of here are leftist intellectuals, chattering classes, politicians, and career activists who either seek or welcome Islam’s role in “transforming” America and the West.

Immigration (Al-Hijra) = Infiltration

What’s in it for Muslims if they know they’re being used? Infiltration, for one. Western Europeans long ago opened their borders to Muslims. The need originally was labor. Western Europe’s elites — left-dominated — have, post-World War II, imported millions of Muslims.  [Let me be clear, it isn’t just the Left looking for cheap labor here in America. Big businesses, like the meatpackers! and some Republicans are selling us out!—ed]

Fatal flaw in the Left’s thinking:  that they will control Islam, discard it when they wish.

A fatal conceit exists on the left in its use of Islam. It’s this: leftists are in every way superior to Muslims. Islam, violent and useful, though dangerous, is primitive and no match for the great minds and godless certitudes of “progressivism.” Islam can be used and then dispensed with. But the left underestimates the power of an ancient faith — and its faithful — at its own peril.

Read it all.
