Contractor says governors can find out which refugees are being resettled; White House said NO

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 1, 2015

Update:  White House is now saying they will give information to governors, but it is info. already available to the public, here.

In a recent conference call with the White House, governors were told that they are not permitted to find out who is being resettled in their states, while here a big-wig at Church World Service says governors need only call the US State Department and they will be told who is coming.

We reported on the conference call here—the White House said NO they can’t!  (You know I’ve noticed that many of the operatives in the resettlement contracting business know less than we do about what is going on!)

Now here we have Church World Service Director of Refugees and Immigration Programs, Bosnian Erol Kekic, telling Chris Christie to call up the US State Department and they will tell him who is coming to New Jersey and when:


Church World Service’s Erol Kekic says Christie needs only to call the State Department to find out who is being resettled in NJ. Keckic bio here:

Resettlement groups immediately declared their independence. “We don’t believe the directive the governor put in place is necessarily enforceable,” said Erol Kekic, executive director of immigration and refugee programs for Church World Service. “Immigration is a federal issue. He can’t control who lives in his state.” And as for reporting any contact, Kekic said that information on any refugees settled in New Jersey is already easily available to governors by calling the State Department in Washington, D.C. “It’s not something very secret, nor it is hard to obtain,” said Kekic, “If Christie and these other governors want to know who and where these refugees are, maybe they should pick up the phone?”

Note to Governor Christie (and other governors):

Pick up the phone! Call Anne Richard, Asst. Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration each week and get a list of who is being resettled in New Jersey (or your state).  

CWS, probably Kekic himself, sits down each week with PRM and decides who is going where.

Then Governor Christie, make a public announcement each week about which refugees are going to which NJ towns and cities and you would do your NJ citizens a great service.  They have a right to know (they will be paying for it!).

If you haven’t made the connection, Kekic works for the Rev. McCullough, we told you about here on Sunday.  He is the guy being arrested in front of the White House.  Remember these federal contractors also promote amnesty for illegal aliens!

Action Alert:  Call your members of the House and Senate at 202-224-3121 and ask them to vigorously oppose the Refugee Resettlement funding contained in the Omnibus Spending Bill that will be voted on by 12-11-15! Please call by this Friday, Dec. 4th.

    Mr. Kekic is most likely a refugee from Bosnia. The refugees moving into well-paid positions have made the refugee industry a self-fueling machine. He was on NPT and I noticed he acted like they all have been acting – Ann Richard, Mark Hetfield, Volag directors, etc. Very aggressive. I have to believe this strategy was planned out in advance by all the parties involved, but I do believe their methods may be failing them.
