Looking for one brave and patriotic governor! Lawsuit ready to file against refugee program, needs only a plaintiff

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 3, 2015

But one important caveat.  The governor must be from one of the 12 Wilson Fish states.

If you live in one of these states, you have your marching orders starting tomorrow!

Your governor must be deluged with requests to join a suit being prepared by a nationally renowned public interest law firm specializing in cases involving the US Constitution.   Here are the key states in which the so-called Wilson Fish alternative resettlement plan is ripe for a challenge:

Alabama
Alaska
Colorado
Idaho
Kentucky
Louisiana
Massachusetts
Nevada
North Dakota
South Dakota
Tennessee
Vermont

Now this is the breaking news from Breitbart reporter Michael Patrick Leahy:

matt Bevin

Will newly elected KY Governor Matt Bevin be the bravest of them all?

The Thomas More Law Center, a well respected public interest law firm, is ready to file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the $1 billion a year U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program and is looking for a governor to be the plaintiff in a case that can be filed on short notice.

The Refugee Resettlement Program, which has been in operation for more than three decades, brings 100,000 refugees a year, 40 percent of whom are Muslim, into the United States. As Breitbart News reported previously, the Obama administration intends to bring 10,000 Syrian refugees to the United States in 2016, despite testimony by the director of the FBI these refugees cannot be vetted and polls that show more than 10 percent of the refugees have a positive view of ISIS.

Dick Thompson, the executive director of the Thomas More Law Center and a former prosecutor in Michigan, tells Breitbart News that the public interest law firm has devoted more than six months and much of its legal staff researching the legal authority by which President Obama authorizes un-elected and unaccountable “voluntary agencies” (VOLAGs) to place refugees in states without receiving the permission of the state’s governor.

“We’ve drafted a 16 page complaint that we can utilize for any one of the Wilson-Fish state governors. All we need is for one of these governors from a Wilson-Fish state to say I want to file a lawsuit, and we could file one on their behalf within a few days. Moreover, our representation is without charge,” Thompson says.

The basis of the lawsuit is that the program, as currently operated, violates the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution.

Please read the remainder of Mr. Leahy’s report!  Will Kentucky go first? Or, how about Alabama?  Idaho! here is your chance! Step right up! The volags are reeling!

But, don’t forget, even if you are deluging your governor’s office you can still do this too….

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.

Today and tomorrow! Call Congress! You are flooding them!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 3, 2015

How do we know?

The other day we told you that the nine major federal resettlement contractors have put in motion a massive campaign to make sure they can continue to flood your towns with refugees and collect their paychecks!  One of the nine is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society which has instructions on contacting your member of Congress and US Senators.

Melanie Nezer

Melanie Nezer of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society must be sweating it today….

Here are their instructions.  It appears the appeal is broad (and not just aimed at the Safe Act) as had been previously the focus of their attention—they seem to ‘get-it’ that the funding for the entire refugee admissions program could be in jeopardy.

But, what I want you to know is that they have a feedback page so that their people can report what they learn when calling Congressional offices.  And, get this!  Their top day was November 18th when 105 people reported in, yesterday only 2 reported.

But, check this out!  From comments at HIAS website:

Senator Perdue: Parker, who answered the phone, said that Senator Perdue firmly opposed the resettlement of any Syrian refugees in Georgia; they received 7,000 calls yesterday in opposition to the resettlement of Syrian refugees in Georgia and my call at 1:53 pm today was the first call they received in favor of the refugee program.

So, if you think your calls don’t matter, you are wrong!  They have never been challenged like this! Mention the Syrians in your calls, but it’s the funding for the program you should focus on!

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.

About Nezer:  Way back in early 2014, Nezer was the first to call for a huge number of Syrians to be admitted to the US. HIAS is now pushing for 100,000 mostly Muslim Syrians to be resettled in your towns and cities.

Don’t get hung up on screening! It’s the second generation immigrant jihadists we must worry about

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 3, 2015

There is so much talk about the screening process for Muslim refugees that I’m afraid we are losing sight of the fact that it’s the second generation (can you say San Bernardino slaughter) that we should be concerned about.

Minnesota Men…..

Realistically, how are we going to stop those Islamic terrorists (to save our children and grandchildren)?

There is only one way and it starts with halting all Muslim migration to America and then it requires a ruthless surveillance of all those in here already (like it or not!  Trump is right!) until any vestige of the Islamic supremacist mindset is stamped out.

This week’s issue of the Weekly Standard reminds us of the huge US Somali population (growing by the hundreds each month), that has been the seed community from which ISIS, and before that, Al-Shabaab has been drawing its new recruits.

From the Weekly Standard (Minnesota Men indeed!).  Hat tip: Judy

If you get your news from the headlines, you can be excused for thinking that “Minnesota men” pose a special risk of taking up the terrorist jihad at home and abroad. As the Wall Street Journal reported this past April, for example, “U.S. charges six Minnesota men with trying to join ISIS.” The “Minnesota men” featured in such headlines are almost invariably drawn from Minnesota’s swelling population of Somali Muslim immigrants. The state—mostly the metropolitan Twin Cities area—is home to 35,000 such immigrants, the largest Somali population in North America.

Starting in the 1990s, the State Department directed thousands of refugees from Somalia’s civil war to Minnesota. As Kelly Riddell pointed out in the Washington Times this past February, in Minnesota these refugees “can take advantage of some of America’s most generous welfare and charity programs.” Riddell quoted Professor Ahmed Samatar of Macalester College in St. Paul: “Minnesota is exceptional in so many ways but it’s the closest thing in the United States to a true social democratic state.” After a dip in 2008, the inflow of Somalis has continued unabated and augmented by Somalis from other states. If it takes a village, Minnesota has what it takes.

Continue reading here as the Weekly Standard chronicles several important cases in Minnesota.

And, do you know why the number dipped in 2008?  That was the year that the US State Department basically said ‘oopsie! we admitted thousands of Somalis illegally who had lied on applications to get in.’   Consequently, the resettlement of Somali families was put on hold for a couple of years!

How many Somalis have we resettled?  And, why are we still bringing them in by the thousands each year?

So, how many did we admit in the last 25 years or so?  Go to this post we wrote in 2008 (and updated through the years).

In the first six weeks of FY 2016 we have already admitted another 827 Somalis (surely the number has passed the 1,000 mark in recent days).

You must call your US Senators and Member of Congress today, tomorrow and maybe early next week!  It is not just about the Syrians!!!  And, it’s not just about making sure the ones coming in are ‘screened’ when evidence tells us it’s not mom and dad who we should fear, but their children as the second generation is not assimilating, but become more devout (aka radicalized!).

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.

Texas sues Obama Administration and a resettlement contractor

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 3, 2015

Update December 5th:  Texas already backed down, here.

On Monday we reported that Texas was planning to sue the federal government and the International Rescue Committee, now they have done it.

hillary and miliband

The state of Texas is suing the International Rescue Committee headed by Brit David Miliband bff Hillary! Hillary: ‘Well, if you saw him it would be a BIG crush.’ http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1260660/Move-Miliband-Hillary-Clinton-special-relationship-new-man.html#ixzz3tGGETI4Z

Everyone wants to know if states have any rights under the federal Refugee Act of 1980, but since, as far as we know, no governors have even tried to test their rights, we can’t answer that.

We need more lawsuits like this one from other governors exploring different legal angles.

The consultation process required by the original Act is an important angle.

From The Hill:

Texas on Wednesday sued the Obama administration and an organization that resettles refugees over plans to bring six Syrian refugees to the state later this week.

In a filing, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission accused the two of violating federal law with its plans to bring the family to Dallas on Friday.

The state asked the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas to block the resettlement and to order the defendants to “comply with their statutory and contractual duties to the state.”

Instead of working with the state to resettle refugees, as the law declares, the federal government and the International Rescue Committee “have left Texas uninformed about refugees that could well pose a security risk to Texans and without any say in the process of resettling these refugees,” the state said in its lawsuit. Texas on Wednesday sued the Obama administration and an organization that resettles refugees over plans to bring six Syrian refugees to the state later this week.

[….]

In its lawsuit, Texas points to the 1980 Refugee Act, which claims that the federal government must “consult regularly” with state and local governments about refugee resettlement plans before the refugees are placed within a state.

Breitbart does a good piece on ‘pockets of resistance,’ Welcoming America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 3, 2015

David Lubell with label

Lubell and his community organizers have more work cut out for them selling ‘diversity is beautiful’ after San Bernardino slaughter.

There is so much happening, we can’t keep up.

So, just now had a few minutes to read Michael Patrick Leahy’s article on Welcoming America’ and its role in tamping down ‘pockets of resistance’ to the resettlement of more refugees into certain cities and states.

And, wow, impressed that he found some information about Soros’ role in creating ‘Welcoming America’ that had been scrubbed from its website since I reported it in 2013.

Read the article which pulls together in one place some of our best information on the community organizers at Welcoming America and their role in selling the “seeding” of America.

While you are there, be sure to read some of the hundreds of comments as well!

In wake of CA terror attack, our readers in Redlands obviously had reason for concern

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 3, 2015

By now you know that the killers in San Bernardino were a Muslim husband and wife team who were killed in a gun battle a few hours after the mass murder—Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik.  Their home (some reports say it was booby-trapped) was in Redlands according to the LA Times.

Hours after the terror attack, CAIR Los Angeles came out to distance themselves from what has all the earmarks of a carefully-planned Islamic terror attack (although the media is dancing around calling it that!).

Hussam Ayloush

About six weeks ago, CAIR Director Hussam Ayloush said Tea Party citizens were bigoted and paranoid to fear more Muslim migration to California. Last night he was “praying” for the victims of the latest Islamic terror attack.

We’ve told you about citizens’ concern about more Muslim migration to Redlands here in October!

We don’t know yet how Farook came to be living in Redlands (there are reports that he was born in America to immigrant parents), but officials there scoffed at concerns voiced by Victoria Hargrave who asked her town council to block Muslim refugee resettlement in Redlands.   From our post on Redlands, Hargrave told the council:

Our biggest concern is the safety of our family, our children and our grandchildren,” Victoria Hargrave of Redlands Townhall said the council on Tuesday.

After Hargrave’s plea to the council she was blasted by CAIR Los Angeles Director, Hussam Ayloush, who called her remarks bigoted and rooted in paranoia as we reported here.

Victoria Hargrave of Redlands Townhall said on Wednesday that our nation is based on Judeo-Christian beliefs, and we value freedom of speech, freedom of religion and property rights as protected by the Constitution. She said Muslims reject these values and are coming to America to impose Sharia law.

“This paranoia and phobia is rooted in a combination of ignorance and bigotry,” said Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Los Angeles chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and chairman of the Syrian American Council in a telephone interview Wednesday about the Redlands tea party concerns.

Now, Hussam Ayloush is at the microphones “praying” for the victims and distancing his religion from the latest slaughter.

We have been for decades admitting Muslim migrants and learning that the second generation is being radicalized (they become more devout!). Sadly there is no sign of an end in sight now that the Muslim numbers have become so high.

Send us updates and we will post some of those at this post.   We want to know what nationality Farook and Malik were, Pakistani? What legal immigration program brought his parents to America?  What mosque did he attend?  Where did he connect with Malik? Did they have support from ISIS?

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
