Nearly 500 turn out in Kalispell, Montana to hear presentation about refugee program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 25, 2016

Wow! Incredible news! Incredible turnout!


Flathead Act meeting

Thanks to an attendee for sending the photo!


We’ve been reporting recently about plans underway to make Montana the 49th state that could see Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees resettled there through the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program.  Click here for one recent post about a demonstration by citizens of Big Sky Country to send a message to Washington—thanks, but no thanks!

Here we learn from the Daily Inter Lake how interested people of rural Montana are in the issue.  The presentation was put on by the Flathead Valley Act for America (like them on facebook!).

An estimated 460 people turned out Tuesday in Kalispell to hear a Bozeman-based immigration speaker detail the reasons he believes settlement of refugees in the United States is a drain on national resources and potential threat to homeland security.

Paul Nachman said immigrants often don’t assimilate and are a drain on state resources. He pointed out that the two brothers who carried out the Boston Marathon bombings were children of parents who were granted asylum from war-torn Chechnya.


In making his case that the vast majority of those granted asylum or refugee status are not actually in danger, Nachman pointed out that one of the bombers and their parents had traveled back to the area they had fled from in the years leading up to the bombing.

Nachman said the purpose of the United States is stated in the Preamble to the Constitution. He focused on the part that says the people of the United States will “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”

“So what the United States is about is benefiting the citizens of the United States, not rescuing the rest of the world from its distress,” Nachman said.

Nachman is a volunteer in a physics group at Montana State University and has a doctorate in astrophysics and astronomy. He has written online articles about immigration issues.

His talk was hosted by the Flathead County chapter of Act for America, a national group working to promote security and defeat terrorism.

Caroline Solomon, Flathead Valley Act for America chapter president, said Tuesday’s event had been planned months in advance and was not scheduled because of demonstrations in Missoula and Helena this month over possible resettlement of Syrian refugees in Montana.

The protests did seem to help heighten interest in the Kalispell event — it had to be moved from Sykes’ Diner to a larger conference room at the Red Lion Hotel Kalispell. Collapsible panels were removed to expand the room from the 275 seats originally put out for guests.

Are you ready! Those who want to colonize Montana with third-worlders have planned a “march against hate” for March 1. Read all about it here

    Flathead Indian Reservation is located close to Kalispell and Glacier National Park. Seems like an odd place to plunk Middle Eastern refugees who will not respect Native American traditions.

      Resettlement guidelines recommend spreading the “Refugee” population out in just such places as Kalispell…so as not to be noticed [until it it too late] by the native born population.

      As it stands today, American citizens are totally out of the loop, decisions regarding who is a “refugee” remain in the hands of an America-hating United Nations. (“UNHCR determines if an individual qualifies as a refugee” )

      G-d help us.
