Syrians coming to NJ, Church World Service to hold gathering to educate citizens

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 21, 2016

If you live in North Jersey, especially in the area of Jersey City where Americans witnessed the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center across the harbor and where Donald Trump reported Muslims celebrating that day, you might want to attend this educational gathering being promoted by Church World Service, one of nine major federal resettlement contractors.

[For the record, CWS is the resettlement contractor that tried to set up shop in my county in 2007 and inspired me to write this blog!]

Mark your calendars for March 6th!

Here is the news on the event.

Syrians (mostly Sunni Muslims) are only trickling in so far, see here, but the Obama Administration is planning an “interview surge” to get more in here more quickly, here.  CWS is getting ‘welcoming’ communities prepped for the surge of arrivals.

Mahmoud Mahmoud, director of Church World Service in Jersey City, will speak about ongoing efforts to resettle Syrian refugees in the New York area and ways the community can help at First Congregational Church of Westfield on Sunday, March 6, at 11:30 a.m. To register for this event, which includes a free soup luncheon, contact the church at 908-233-2494 or uccfcc@verizon.net.

Be sure to see my earlier post today on the NYT actually reporting on security screening inadequacy.

I’ll betcha now that Chris Christie is out of the Presidential race, the NJ governor won’t be talking with the same bravado, as he did previously, about not permitting Syrian resettlement in the state.

  6. Be sure to instruct the Syrian Muslims that they must renounce Islam and become good Christians so they can assimilate into the American culture and lifestyle. Naturally that will go over like a H-Bomb. And they can reboard the planes and return to their shit hole country.

    Ann, maybe Dr. Robert Spencer would give a counter introduction to what residents may expect and have experienced in Europe. Just be sure its at a different venue, time and with real security.

  9. So many black folks in Jersey could use the help these “refugees” will get. I am surprised the BLM folks are not raising a loud refrain of “No Justice”…

        They will eventually see resources stretched, benefits decreased and compare what they are receiving compared to the refugees. This of course applies only to anyone regardless of skin color who has fallen on hard times.
