Refugee Resettlement Watch

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.

    Yesterday I sent out 5000 copies of the: “action alert” on my http://www.refugeeresettlementrelief.com email list in Georgia. In addition I have distributed about 7500 flyers to various Georgia organizations, meetings, and both Trump campaign events. The flyers inform Georgians that our state legislatures–like every other state except the ones caught in the Wilson-Act–voluntarily participate in Refugee Resettlement and we can stop it’s funding immediately if we have the political will. I am attacking a local state senator, Fran Millar, who has for years been an advocate for RR funding in the General Assembly. I suggest that all of you find who is funding RR in your state and beat that person in the election or at least make his/her life politically uncomfortable. This is a local problem as well as national. If your state cuts the RR budget then it will die. Tell your legislator that they don’t have to take the money from the federal government and even if they do they don’t have to spend it. Any unspent RR program monies default back to the federal government under the statutory provisions of the act.
