Amnesty advocate Rep. Paul Ryan poised to be next Speaker of the House, if you don’t take action

Ryan and Guiterez

Update #2:  Reader Kay reports on her attempts to reach Jim Jordan:

It took me 5 tries calling to finally get in touch with Chairman Jordan’s office. I was hung up on 3 times, got a person who did not speak English well on my 4th try…she hung up too, and on my 5th try, I got a young man in Mr. Jordan’s office who seemed pleasant. The first words out of my mouth is that I had a citizen concern for Mr. Jordan as Freedom Caucus Chair and to please not hang up on me, as I had been shut out 4 times already. The young man at least acted like he was listening and took down information and my phone number. I reiterated to him that people in my area, Cincinnati, Ohio, did NOT want Paul Ryan as Speaker.

Update:  Andy Harris sells out to RINOs, here.  If you see more news on Freedom Caucus members today, let me know.

NumbersUSA has launched a call-in campaign to try to stop this moving train.

Roy Beck on Rep. Paul Ryan, click here.

Here is what Roy Beck said in an e-mail to concerned Americans:

I’m convinced that the only thing that will keep the most powerful and committed Republican House amnesty leader out of the chair of the Speaker of the House is an unrelenting barrage of phone calls to Republican Representatives from our NumbersUSA network today (yesterday) and Friday.

My description of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is not based just on what I know but on what PBS proved last night with its premier airing of a two-hour documentary, IMMIGRATION BATTLE. It provided detail after detail of Ryan’s back-room efforts to get a version of the Senate Gang of 8 amnesty through the House over the last two years.

Beck wants you to call all of your Republican members, but here is the list of Members of the Freedom Caucus so I’m urging you to focus on them as a first priority (from wikipedia).   By the way, we hear that the Koch brothers provide some funding for the Freedom Caucus—not a good sign since the funders of RINO Presidential candidates have been visibly absent from the immigration issue leading most to conclude that they too are pro-open borders in order to supply cheap labor for industry.

What is the cost to admit (and care for!) refugees in the US?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2015

pigNobody really knows, nor does the refugee industry want you to know!

We just now reported on a leaked report in the UK that puts the figure at around $36,000 per refugee per year in the UK, but as far as we have ever seen, no official government estimate has been made of the cost of resettlement in the US.  That is why the bill introduced by Rep. Brian Babin of Texas is so important. Update:  See more on the Babin bill, here.

Syrians arrive KY

Starving Syrian refugees arrive in Kentucky earlier this year. Do Mitch and Rand know that KY is so far this fiscal year the leading Syrian resettlement state? https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/first-syrian-refugees-arriving-in-louisville-ky-helped-with-grant-from-islamic-charity/

Here Jessica Vaughn (Center for Immigration Studies) writing at National Review (‘Help Refugees, but Stop Feeding the Refugee-Resettlement Industry’) references a Heritage Foundation report:

The Heritage Foundation has calculated that the 10,000 Syrians who would be admitted under the president’s plan would eventually collect about $6.5 billion in services over the next 50 years. Much of that would be borne by local communities.

Read it all.

And see here at The Atlantic someone did a quick and dirty calculation, but this number only represents the cost of bringing 70,000 refugees in to the country and does not include the welfare benefits refugees receive, the healthcare or the cost of educating the children.

The process of bringing refugees to the U.S. is handled by three agencies: the State Department, which leads the program, USCIS at the Department of Homeland Security, and the Office of Refugee Resettlement at the Department of Health and Human Services.

Together, the three agencies spent about $1.1 billion last year. That’s $1.1 billion for 70,000 refugees, which comes to about $15,714 per person.

Getting at the real costs to federal, state and local taxpayers is an important goal going forward, but be prepared for all involved in the industry to stonewall such an effort.

British taxpayer on the hook for about $36,000 for each Syrian refugee admitted

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2015

Invasion of Europe news….

From the Daily Mail:

As well as proving to be the most intractable challenge that Europe has faced for a generation, the current migrant crisis has also revealed the profound consequences of gesture politics.

SYRIAN-REFUGEES_UK

Some of those charming ‘refugees’ the British taxpayer will be caring for? Photo: http://yournewswire.com/the-first-syrian-refugees-of-20000-approved-have-arrived-in-uk/

For we are now told that the cost of every Syrian refugee who comes to Britain will be up to £24,000 each — a year. [Check my math, but I think that is about $36,000 in US dollars.—ed]

These official figures imply a total bill for taxpayers of up to £2 billion for the 20,000 migrants that the Government has pledged to take in here over the next four years.

By their vain grandstanding, some of our EU partners — especially Germany’s Angela Merkel, who has said she would be happy to take 800,000 Syrian migrants in 2015 alone — have made the predicament much worse.

Their promises to open the door mean we are confronted by an unprecedented continental exodus, not just from Syria, but from countries such as Nigeria and Bangladesh.

[….]

The implications of David Cameron’s grand gesture remain shrouded in mystery, because the Home Office has so far refused to give details. We still don’t know how many Syrians have entered Britain, where they are housed, or whether they will stay permanently. The figures about costs only became public because someone at the Home Office leaked the document.

It says the annual cost per Syrian refugee to local councils is estimated to be £8,520 per person. On top of this, central government will be forced to pay £12,700 in benefits and £2,200 for medical care.

The likelihood is the real cost will be higher. Not only is it likely that family members of the original 20,000 will subsequently be allowed here, but the initial figure will not include a host of ancillary costs.

For example, because many refugees are likely to have post-traumatic conditions that will place a new burden on the overstretched mental health services of the NHS. None of this, however, has prevented liberal critics from denouncing the Prime Minister’s gesture as insufficiently generous.

Hillary (and the girls) are to blame for Libyan hellhole, European invasion

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2015

A trip down memory lane….

As I listened to testimony yesterday at the Benghazi hearing I was reminded of the many posts I’ve written over the years about how Hillary was directly involved in the destruction of the Libyan state that ultimately led to the use of that country as an important launch pad for the Mediterranean invasion of Europe by tens of thousands of Africans and Middle Easterners.

 

Hillary, rice, power

Hillary admitted yesterday that in 2011 Obama was reluctant to follow Europe’s lead and get involved in Libya, but that she marshaled the forces (including Susan Rice and Samantha Power) to persuade Obama to help overthrow Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. Ultimately, she said yesterday, it was the President’s decision thereby tossing blame back on Obama when the results of her actions have proven so disastrous. Ambassador Stevens and the others who died might not have been there if it weren’t for those “loose weapons.”

 

Here is one of our many posts on Hillary:  This one is from December 2014, but we had predicted in 2011 that Hillary’s (and yes, she admitted it yesterday that she was the leading Administration force for the overthrow of Gadaffi) misadventure in Libya was leading to a refugee crisis of massive proportion.

Hillary and the girls (dubbed the “humanitarian Vulcans” by some in the White House) said it was our “responsibility to protect” the Libyan people that underpinned our imperative to join the Europeans in overthrowing (and killing) Gadaffi.  This is what I said in December of 2011.  So much for the poor Libyan people now!

Watch for it!   The ‘responsibility to protect’ means we go to war and create a whole new bunch of refugees that need to be resettled in the West!

Hebrew refugee contractor: Don’t send money/supplies to Syrians, lobby Washington to bring them here

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2015

That is the message going out from the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (which has rebranded itself as HIAS Inc.)—put pressure on Washington to get more Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees here faster.   HIAS thinks Obama’s decision to bring in 10,000 and distribute them around the US is too low.  They want 100,000!

Riva-Silverman

HIAS Veep Riva Silverman wants Jews to lobby Washington to bring more Syrian Muslims to the US (go figure!).

Charitable Americans think sending money and supplies for Syrians is a sensible and good thing to do—so that they might be comfortable until someday soon they could go home to Syria. Not HIAS, they want you to join their lobbying campaign to transport the Middle East to middle America and get them on the track for US citizenship.

But, surprise, surprise, no where in this article at Jweekly does it mention that HIAS and eight other contractors are paid by the head (out of your wallets!) to resettle refugees in unsuspecting towns and cities.

From Jweekly:

The best thing Americans can do to help Syrian refugees is not to send supplies or even cash, but to lobby the U.S. government to admit more of them into this country, Riva Silverman said last week at Stanford’s Ziff Center for Jewish Life.

“In 2015, the U.S. is committed to resettling 70,000 refugees [from all countries]. That number is less than half the number of refugees we resettled just 10 years ago, when the number of refugees worldwide was significantly less,” said Silverman, the HIAS vice president for external affairs.

Germany, she said, has offered to resettle 800,000 Syrian refugees in response to the crisis. HIAS, formerly known as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, has called upon the United States to admit 100,000 Syrian refugees in addition to the refugee slots it has already allocated.

Silverman was at Hillel at Stanford on Oct. 14 as part of a speaking tour with her colleague, Winnie Gacheru, director of HIAS Kenya, in order to raise awareness about the refugee crisis and the Jewish agency’s work in aiding and resettling refugees. Ten local synagogues and Jewish agencies, including the Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley, were among the dozen or so co-sponsors of the event, titled “Yearning to Breathe Free: The Jewish Response to Today’s Refugee Crisis.”

[….]

HIAS was founded in the 19th century to assist Jewish immigrants who showed up on American shores impoverished and to rescue Jews who in danger around the world. The agency helped resettle Jews fleeing Europe, Russia and the Middle East, with the final wave from the former Soviet Union ebbing by the end of the 20th century.

“HIAS could have easily stated ‘mission accomplished’ and closed up shop” when the flow of Jewish refugees ended, Silverman said. “Instead, we took our experience and turned our focus to the millions of today’s refugees who find themselves fleeing their persecutors.”

The average American reading this next paragraph will think that HIAS is doing this by raising private charitable money!

HIAS now has field operations in 10 countries and is one of nine agencies sanctioned to resettle immigrants in the United States. Abroad, HIAS helps people attain refugee status and makes sure they have the documentation they need to be eligible for social services, to send their children to school, to work and to move forward with their cases. HIAS also provides counseling and job training.

[….]

“The most important thing for Americans to be doing now in this crisis is to make our government behave very differently,” Silverman said.

It is maddening, isn’t it, to know that they get millions of tax dollars every year and use some of it to lobby Washington!
