Well, that is the gist of it. Most refugees they are stressing about are Muslims after all. So, what do you expect! Of course they want more seeded into your towns and cities.
The International Rescue Committee and the other federal contractors (which are paid by the head to resettle refugees) have signed on to an open letter to world leaders to harangue them about more permanent resettlement in the west of mostly Muslim Syrians and Iraqis.
I’m laughing to myself because surely the IRC and the eight other quasi-government agencies masquerading as non-profit groups must be really embarrassed because the US (Obama!) can’t get done what they want—they are all on record wanting 100,000 Syrians admitted to the US THIS year. But, not a critical word in their open letter about their dear leader Barack Hussein Obama.
I followed their wailing and moaning way back in 2007 and 2008 when Bush was going too slowly in opening the Iraqi flood gates and they screamed via many friendly reporters every month (when the new numbers came out) about what a meany Bush was.
Not a peep about Obama! So fun to watch!
In a couple of days we will be 6 months into FY2016 and we are (I am happy to report) nowhere near the numbers of Syrians being admitted to the US that Obama has promised (he promised 10,000 by Sept. 30th). Come back in a couple of days and I’ll let you know where we stand. Hint: They have over 8,000 to go! (Apparently the political pressure you are all putting on is working!)
Here is the letter, you can read it yourself if you feel like it.
Below are the signers. Without your tax dollars most of these organizations would have to fold like cheap suits! Ha! I wonder how many of their employees will be on taxpayer-funded junkets to Sweden today?
