Idaho: Editorial confirms refugee contractors “bidding for bodies”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 14, 2015

That phrase is a favorite one of a longtime critic of the refugee resettlement process as it is now administered in the US—bidding for bodies.  Catchy isn’t it!

CSI Refugee Programs is a subcontractor of the Arlington, VA-based US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) which is 99% funded by taxpayer dollars. It is headed by Lavinia Limon who was Bill Clinton’s director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Photo: http://refugeecenter.csi.edu/

Yesterday we were alerted to yet another editorial*** at MagicValley.com which has heretofore demonstrated a bias in favor of more refugees for Twin Falls.   The editorial basically asks, what is the big deal with the R & P Abstract?

Before I get to the editorial, here is a little background.  Each year the resettlement contractor working in your town or city prepares a report (a proposal of sorts) called an Abstract that is used to get its federal funding.  It says how many refugees your town (in their opinion) can accommodate and from what regions of the world they might come.   It also contains a text portion that explains why your town would be ideal—describing what “services” you have available.

We contend that citizens are entitled to this document in advance of it being sent to Washington for funding and that you should have some say about the “capacity” of your town to ‘welcome’ more third worlders.   However, it has been extremely difficult to even get copies of those from this year (FY2015) which ends in just about 7 weeks.  Indeed the citizens of Twin Falls were only able to get the 2014 document through a public information request.  The paper also needed to obtain one through the same means (they confirm in the editorial).  You can be sure the subcontractor, CSI Refugee Center, wasn’t handing them out without legal pressure!

Contractors:  Do not give out the Abstracts!

Thanks to inside sources we learned recently that the subcontractors working in these cities had been instructed (by their primary contractor) to NOT give any Abstracts out to citizens who called looking for them.

So, if the Abstracts are so ho-hum and uninformative as this editorial implies, why the secrecy?

Unfortunately, you may not be able to use a public information request (as did the citizens of Twin Falls) to get yours because some of the subcontractors are non-profits completely on their own (other than receiving $$$ from Washington).  I’m guessing this one in Twin Falls was obtainable because CSI (the subcontractor) is intimately/financially entwined with the College of Southern Idaho—a state college.

Long story to get to my main point today!

Look at this paragraph in MagicValley’s editorial:

The group filed a public records request seeking the CSI abstract being prepared for next year – and was denied. Not because CSI is trying to cover something up, but because the document is still being processed, and disclosing it now would amount to sharing trade secrets, since each refugee center around the country competes for resources through the federal resettling program.

Trade secrets!    Can you have trade secrets from the taxpayer?

What the heck!  This isn’t a private business that needs to understandably protect itself in a contract bidding process.  This is a non-profit group competing with another non-profit group for YOUR money—the “resources” of the federal treasury!

These contractors and subcontractors are paid by the head (by you!) to resettle refugees—they are indeed bidding for bodies and here we get confirmation that you can’t know what they plan for your town while you pay for the whole thing!

We, in Twin Falls, have amenities to offer including a TB Clinic!

And, although the great minds at MagicValley.com want to downplay (sneer at) your interest in the Abstract, I found it pretty informative and I don’t even live there.  For example, read the text and see what Twin Falls is offering in the bidding war with other subcontractors/contractors around the US.

Here, for instance, I learned this:  CSI promotes the fact that Twin Falls has a cracker-jack medical system including a Tuberculosis Clinic!  Wow! So that means Twin Falls can take a bunch of the refugees entering the US with TB (yes, they are permitted entry!) while some other town can’t.

Twin Falls is home to an adult tertiary care hospital, a tuberculosis clinic, a renal dialysis clinic, and a dental clinic. Clients can also access transplant and rehabilitation services.

Guess who pays for all of that medical care for refugees?

Every bit of this is about money (humanitarian mumbo-jumbo is the cover).  Now the trick will be to figure out who in Idaho benefits the most!

*** In a previous editorial they called me a “thief!”

Endnote:  I have another post in the works on Idaho for today besides this one and my previous one about the conviction of Idaho’s refugee terrorist, so come back later!

Idaho: Uzbek Refugee Convicted of Terrorism Conspiracy Charge in US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 14, 2015

My title is the headline on the AP story from Wednesday reporting that Fazliddin Kurbanov has been convicted in Boise, Idaho on terror charges.

It looks like, at a minimum, he will get ten years in the slammer at your expense.

Fazliddin Kurbanov

This photo is from Kurbanov’s facebook page and can be found in an informative story about his brother defending him. What interested me is the discussion of how his parents got asylum in the US after converting to Christianity, but that Kurbanov himself went back to Islam (after he got to the US?). Also, beware the Uzbek truck drivers in America. http://jarayon.com/en/index.php/human-rights/item/134-jamoliddin-kurbanov-i-do-not-believe-that-my-brother-is-a-terrorist

You know why I’m featuring the AP’s headline?  Because when Kurbanov was first arrested in 2013 it was extremely difficult initially to figure out if he was a refugee admitted through the US State Department and deposited with a resettlement contractor in a town near you, or was he in the US through some other means.

The media is usually loathe to tell us the immigration status of a foreign criminal, so it is a milestone to see a headline like this one in the mainstream media with the word “refugee” so prominently mentioned.

Learn more about Fazliddin Kurbanov in our archives, here.

Read the AP story here.

And then be sure to see James Kirkpatrick’s take at VDARE (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum):

Idaho was such a boring, white bread state with no culture. It needed vibrant refugees to spice things up.

[….]

Lost in the debate over what to do about Islamic terrorism and the Islamic State is the simple reality that the United States is actually importing an Islamic terrorism problem. Neoconservatives used to tell us that we “have to fight them there, or we will have to fight them here.” However, our current government policy is for us to bring them from over there, so they can fight us here. We don’t have a “radical Islam” problem. We have an immigration problem.

There is much more, he goes on to talk about the ‘government’ money sloshing through the system that perpetuates refugee resettlement!  Continue reading here.

We have a growing archive on Idaho mushrooming especially lately as a ‘Pocket of Resistance’ has formed in Twin Falls.

For more on Uzbeks click here.  Kurbanov is not the first Uzbek arrested in America on terror charges!

The next time you hear the contractors or the US State Department assure you that the security screening for refugees is rigorous, think about this case!

Incidentally, there is something very fishy about an airlift to America of Uzbek refugees during the Bush Administration, but I guess we will never know what the State Dept. and the CIA were doing!

Serbia gearing up for massive new wave of migrants escaping ISIS

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 14, 2015

Invasion of Europe news….

There have been several stories lately suggesting that the Obama Administration perhaps purposefully allowed ISIS to grow and metastasize in Syria and into Iraq.  We talk about the desire by anyone concerned about ISIS to want to stop their brutality. Worse, in the long run though, is the need to stop them from destroying Europe, which they are doing not by acts of terror, but by sending millions of needy people fleeing westward.  I guess what I am saying is maybe Obama is quietly cheering the invasion of Europe.

Here is some news from Serbia as it braces for the next onslaught. Most won’t stay in Serbia but will move westward to France and Germany and other more prosperous countries of the EU.

From Pravoslavie.ru:

Serbia can expect another wave of refugees at the beginning of autumn—one which will be much larger than the current 1,000 Syrian refugees who enter every day, writes the Serbian daily “Blic,” citing information obtained from Serbian security services.

The second wave is expected to bring the poorest residents of Arab countries where the war with ISIS (ISIL/Islamic State) rages.

According to estimations of Serbian officials about three million new immigrants are on the Turkish border waiting to enter the EU through Greece, Macedonia and Serbia.

“The new wave of immigrants could pose the most risk to the safety and public health of Serbian residents. These immigrants who will arrive in Serbia come from the lowest social structures of their countries. That is why measures for greater control of their movement are being already planned,” says the latest information of Serbian security services that monitor the movement of asylum seekers, writes the daily.
