CIS: Important testimony on Obama’s new “rogue” refugee plan for Central American ‘kids’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 29, 2015

Last week the brave and indefatigable Senator Jeff Sessions held a hearing in his Senate Judiciary Committee, Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, about Obama’s new refugee program for Central American Minors (CAM) program.

Once again, Obama is writing immigration law from the White House as he colonizes your towns with “new” Americans.

For those of you wanting to understand how this already-launched Obama “refugee” resettlement plan works, see this important testimony presented by Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies last week.

Once the Central American “children” are deemed refugees, then what is to stop every poor country in the world from demanding that their children are given the same advantage and designated refugees as well?

Here (below) is how she begins (and a few snips follow).  Perhaps the most important bit you should understand is that the “children” streaming across our southern border, or those still at home in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras are NOT refugees by the internationally understood definition of what does make one a refugee—they must first prove that they are PERSECUTED for one of several reasons.

Obama is changing (broadening!) the definition of ‘refugee’ in such a way that anyone in the world could call themselves a refugee if they need a job and have crime in their country and for those reasons demand entrance into the US.  This CAM program is the proverbial camel getting its nose under the tent!

And, one important reason Obama wants the “children” designated as refugees (besides the simple flooding of America with potential new voters for the Dems because refugees can move quickly to citizenship) is that all of the welfare goodies available to Americans will be available to them as well upon arrival.

Vaughan calls the Obama plan a “rogue” refugee program (emphasis is mine):

Jessica Vaughn, Director of Policy Studies, Center for Immigration Studies. http://cis.org/Vaughan

 Thank you, Chairman Sessions and Ranking Member Schumer, for the opportunity to testify on the new Central American Minors (CAM) Refugee/Parole Program, and the impact this controversial program will have on American communities. Both the CAM Program and the Haitian Family Reunification Program (HFRP), a similarly problematic endeavor, are dramatic departures from existing law and policy on the admission of refugees, grants of parole, and the family reunification process established by Congress. The criteria for participating in the program differ significantly from what the law stipulates for refugees and parolees. The programs have been presented to the public in a deceptive way, perhaps in an effort to avoid public criticism for what are plainly unlawful, unprecedented, and costly schemes. These programs are an egregious abuse of executive authority; perhaps with good intentions, but that is no substitute for the law. Worst of all, there is no indication that either program can succeed in achieving the stated goal of deterring people from contracting with criminal smuggling organizations to bring their family members to the United States. The result will be a continued erosion of the integrity of immigration law, exploding costs for taxpayers, needless public safety problems, and continued illegal immigration from this part of the world.

[….]

The clear focus of the program is on family reunification, not escaping persecution, which is the legal basis for U.S. and international refugee programs. The stated goal is to provide an alternative to traditional – and dangerous – pathways of illegal migration to the United States to join family members who migrated earlier. The existence of persecution is not mentioned in the statement, nor in other official explanations about the CAM program.

[….]

….government and news media reports all indicate that the main reason for the influx of juveniles from Central America is not rampant or particularlized persecution, but to join family members who are already living here, to escape difficult living conditions, and because Obama administration policies allow it.

[….]

While the problems of violence, poverty and lack of opportunity in Central America are real and pervasive, and we cannot be oblivious to them, Congress wisely has not recognized these conditions as appropriate grounds for refugee status. If it had, then much of the world could demand resettlement, including many in the United States.

Keep in mind that the ‘parents’ supposedly lawfully present in the US, who must apply for their kids to enter, are in most cases here in some form of temporary legal status, but once the ‘kid’ becomes a refugee, who would ever throw out the Moms and Pops? In other words, the kid will anchor the family!

There is much, much, more and I urge you to read it so that you know that a few thousand more ‘kids’ coming in as refugees is not the issue.  A more significant impact than the modest numbers of CAMs (which might seem insignificant in the overall scheme of things) is that Obama is changing refugee law!

One final note, especially galling to me is the fact that processing the ‘kids’ into the country will be up to the refugee subcontractors, list here.  And, surely they will be getting more of your hard-earned dollars to do the paperwork!

For new readers, we have an extensive archive on the so-called “Unaccompanied minors” going back several years, here.

Idaho to get an influx of Syrian refugees beginning in October

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 29, 2015

Update April 30th:  We received this e-mail from the Times-News asking us to remove the photo we posted of Muslims praying in a Magic Valley mosque. As soon as we saw Mr. Nash’s request we honored it.

You can see the photo and others (there are 13 of them) by clicking here.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the US State Department and its contractors are colonizing Idaho and thus making the construction of a mosque in Magic Valley inevitable.

This is the latest from Twin Falls as the resettlement subcontractor, College of Southern Idaho Refugee Programs, says the town should expect an influx of Syrians starting in October.

Readers, October 1 is the beginning of the new fiscal year (FY2016) and all concerned citizens should begin asking your local resettlement subcontractor (list here) for their ‘abstract’ for FY2016.

Right now the subcontractors are preparing their wish list for which ethnic groups of refugees they want to bring to your town, how many,  and are preparing a description of the amenities your town has to offer by way of school system capacity, health care, and other social services you will be providing the “new Americans.” (They may say it isn’t finished but keep after them!).

From MagicValley.com (emphasis is mine):

TWIN FALLS • The College of Southern Idaho’s Refugee Center is expecting an influx of Syrian refugees starting in October.

Projections show the center will likely receive 300 refugees from around the world during the upcoming federal fiscal year. That’s the same number as this year.

Refugee director in Twin Falls is Zeze Rwasama formerly of the DR Congo.

Refugee Center director Zeze Rwasama anticipates the biggest populations of newcomers will be from Syria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo***.

“That can change at any time depending on what’s out there,” he said. The U.S. Department of State approves the number of refugees coming to Twin Falls.

There aren’t any Syrians in Twin Falls yet, Rwasama said, but the Refugee Center is prepared for the influx. “We’re not anticipating any challenges.”

Worldwide, aid groups are calling on the United States to do more to help Syrians displaced by a five-year civil war.

US State Department still aiming to get 2,000 Syrians into the US by September 30th.  (My research says of the 682 we have admitted so far, 90% are Muslims.—ed)

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Anne Richard said during a recent visit to Lebanon that between 1,000 and 2,000 Syrian refugees will be brought to the U.S. by the end of September and several thousand more in 2016.

Not as bad as Wichita, KS (yet!):

Typically, Twin Falls schools have more than 100 refugee students and about 20 languages are spoken.

[….]

Since 1984, the center has settled almost 5,000 people in the Magic Valley. Most are from Iraq and Iran.

Read more hereDavid Miliband’s push for 65,000 Syrians for the US by the end of Obama’s term is mentioned.

See our entire Idaho archive by clicking here.   Remember they had the distinction of resettling an Uzbek alleged terrorist here in 2013.  Whatever happened to his case?

*** The UN is picking 50,000 from the DR Congo for the US.  The process of resettling this very needy group of refugees is underway, see here.  We were led to believe that they would mostly be women and children in great need (expensive to care for!), but there are some Muslims in the mix as well.
