Refugee Resettlement Watch

Refugee contractors’ lobbying office gives RRW a shout-out

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 22, 2015

We’ve been telling you lately about the Refugee Council USA (RCUSA) which is a consortium of groups comprised of many ‘NO borders groups, quasi-religious groups, and some of the nine major federal resettlement contractors paid by you to resettle refugees.

These nine contractors are also calling the shots on which towns and cities will “welcome” the “seedlings” (aka refugees). It sure looks like the US State Dept. is lead around by the nose by these supposed non-profit groups.

Melanie Nezer of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society is the present chair of RCUSA. Last year she was beating the drum for 15,000 (mostly Muslim) Syrians per year. Now it’s 100,000!

RCUSA is the lobby shop that originally spurred the Senate Jihad Caucus to write to Obama and ask for 65,000 Syrians (mostly Muslims) to be admitted to the US this coming year (fiscal year 2016 starts in 9 days).

Not satisfied with demanding 65,000, they recently upped the number to 100,000 Syrians and sent a letter to Obama (we told you about it here a few days ago).

You need to see the letter here!   Below are the national signatories to the letter, but still see the letter for those who signed on in your state.

They have a Congressional Visit toolkit!

The Refugee Council USA (surely they aren’t using your tax dollars to prepare lobbying kits?) also has a Congressional lobbying kit available at their website. See it by clicking here.   We were pleased to see that we have received a shout-out in the kit!

Here is what they say about RRW:

Anti-Refugee Sentiment

Utilizing anti-immigrant and anti-Muslilm sentiment, individuals who oppose refugee resettlement are making their voices heard louder and more frequently to policy makers. Groups like Refugee Resettlement Watch and similar local groups are calling for an end to refugee resettlement altogether, moratoriums on arrivals to their areas, and fostering unwelcoming atmospheres for newcomers. It is critical that policy makers at local, state and national levels hear from refugees themselves and community members who support refugee resettlement, so they can ask questions, learn more about the importance of resettlement, support positive legislation and oppose proposals that would harm refugees.

Be prepared, wherever you are, for the contractors, who are always looking for more refugees to resettle (again, they are paid by the head), to be using poor refugees as pawns in their political game and bringing them out to meetings as poster children for their efforts to change your town by changing the people.  Have sympathy for the refugees because most don’t understand the game.  It is the Leftwing organizers/contractors who are working against America that deserve your criticism.

Now, look at the list of groups who signed the letter to Obama demanding 200,000 total refugees for FY2016 with 100,000 of them being Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees!  Yikes, they even have Hamas/CAIR on their team!  The federal contractors are in red.

What! No US Conference of Catholic Bishops?  Other Catholic groups are listed but contractor USCCB isn’t?  And, where is World Relief (one of the nine contractors)?  Are they wising up?  Didn’t want their names associated with some of these Muslim and hard core Leftwing groups?

  1. […] did get a chuckle out of Melanie Nezer (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) saying they were spreading refugees to small towns to avoid the high cost of living in immigrant […]


  2. […] groups, Muslim activist groups and assorted hard Left (Social Justice!) community organizers are hard at work because they want to bring in 200,000 total refugees, 100,000 Syrians (to your towns and cities), […]


  3. The Pope is traveling the world to preach about climate change and helping muslims refugees. However, he fails to discuss the genocide of Christians for their beliefs. REPORT: Christians murdered for their faith every FIVE MINUTES by Muslim terrorists. Research by CFI found that more than 200 million followers are facing persecution in 105 countries making Christianity the most at-risk faith group in the world. More Christians have been martyred in the 20th and 21st centuries than during the previous 19 combined, the organisation has claimed. It is called Genocide, but the United Nation is silent about any attacks on Christians.

    Kerry just announced that the U.S. will accept 100,000 refugees:


    • Ann Corcoran said

      Yes, so he says for 2017, but they can’t really propose that until September of next year when Obama will make his final Presidential Determination for FY2017. Kerry is just trying to soften the blow his 85,000 number is having on the UN and the Germans etc… they must be going ballistic that Obama didn’t go much higher. But, keep in mind Obama can make an emergency determination at anytime during the year. So who knows!


      • domstudent11 said

        I just read PUBLIC LAW 96-212—MAR. 17, 1980 (which you have mentioned before) where it states in Section 207 that the president must consult the Judiciary committees in the House and Senate and justify the increase, describe the impact on the U.S., describe the resettlement plans etc. That implies that refugee contractors cannot simply dump refugees into communities without their consent.


        • Ann Corcoran said

          Unfortunately, the law has never been followed properly or ever challenged. This may be the first time in 35 years that there is a groundswell demanding accountability. It requires all of us to get involved and demand that Congress protect us!
