Group to rally against refugee resettlement in Twin Falls, ID today

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 18, 2015

Here is a short announcement from

TWIN FALLS • The III Percent of Idaho is holding a march Sunday to call for an end to the refugee program, which is run locally by the College of Southern Idaho.


Refugee resettlement has been an issue worldwide this year due to the refugee crisis triggered by the civil war in Syria, and there is a movement in Twin Falls to shut down the refugee center here, with opponents citing security and cost concerns.

“The ramifications of ignoring Idaho veterans, homeless, and students will continue to yield tragic consequences if Idaho tax dollars are shifted into a broken refugee system,” the III percenters said in the statement. “Until refugees can be thoroughly filtered, and a more reliable, systematic method of accepting refuges is implemented, we must stand in opposition.”

The article goes on to say that the group supports the bill introduced in Congress by Rep. Brian Babin of Texas that seeks to put the program on hold until the cost to the taxpayers is fully determined.   One of our many posts on the Babin bill is here.


Idaho Republican Rep. Raul Labrador is vice chairman of the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security and Idahoans should be looking for him to take a leadership role to protect Idaho!

Rep. Raul Labrador…..

Idahoans should be urging Rep. Raul Labrador to co-sponsor the Babin bill AND urge him to push for hearings on it—he sits on the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security.

In fact he is the vice-chairman of the subcommittee responsible for the refugee program!

Although Twin Falls is not in Rep. Labrador’s district, he should be encouraged to take a lead on this issue from his all important committee leadership position.  He needs to tell Trey Gowdy (the chairman!) to hold hearings on the Babin bill.

We have an extensive archive on Twin Falls, Idaho.  Go here to learn more.

Labrador’s district has dodged a bullet (so far) as we learned here.

And, one more bit of news:  we’ve learned that a new Pocket of Resistance’ is forming in Boise!

  1. these politicians are not listening. as Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton said “white society is declining. as such, so is their revenue. we need to bring in groups that will be economically viable. for those that don’t like the refugees being here, you can leave Minnesota”

    This is a war people. Not hyperbole. We are being ignored, and invaded.
