Iowa jobs programs for refugees could cost state taxpayers hundreds of thousands

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 4, 2016

The story is from the Des Moines Register today (hat tip: Joanne).

State Senator Bob Dvorsky

Iowa State Senator Janet Petersen (D) is working to find the money for more refugee “services” in the state budget.

Hey, folks in Montana and Wyoming, listen up!  When the wannabe refugee contractors tell you that the refugee resettlement program for your state will cost your state and local taxpayers zip, zero, nada, refer your elected officials to this article about the need for a jobs program and more “services” for the 10,000 refugees who have been placed in the state.  (Apparently the meatpacker employers don’t pay enough!)

$350,000 is being sought from the state legislature to help fund RefugeeRise and it’s “advocacy” efforts on behalf of (mostly Burmese?) refugees who don’t have enough “services.”

Of course, the first question I have is where is the refugee resettlement agency that placed them in the first place, aren’t they already being paid to help refugees get “services” and jobs?

RefugeeRise appears to me to be yet one more taxpayer-funded subsidiary of an expanding refugee industry.

This is, after all, an industry!

Row in Canada over where the 25,000 newly admitted Syrians came from, camps or private living situations

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 4, 2016

We’ve been reporting on Canada’s extensive ‘airlift’ of 25,000 plus Syrians since the election of Justin Trudeau only 6 months ago. (click here for our Canada category)

Media images of Canadian Immigration minister John McCallum visiting a Syrian refugee camp in Lebanon were used to sell the resettlement to Canadian taxpayers. I suspect they know even less about those “refugees” ultimately resettled in Canada because they were quickly plucked from neighborhoods throughout the Middle East. http://ottawacitizen.com/news/too-much-make-believe-in-syrian-program-former-top-bureaucrat-says

This is a very interesting article published at The Hill Times that explains the criticism being leveled at the government for promoting Syrian refugee camp images to sell the airlift while most of the 25,000 + who were ultimately resettled were living in apartments throughout the region.

Apparently a decision was made to not show the Syrians living in apartments and participating in the local economy because that image would not persuade Canadians (who shelled out huge sums for the hasty resettlement) that they were in dire need of rescue.

In any case they allowed the UNHCR to choose their refugees and vouch for them on security grounds.

One of the things I would like to know is, what percentage of the new Canadians are Sunni Muslims and what percentage are religious minorities. Not one word in this whole article.

As we reported here in February, the Senate Homeland Security Committee is worried about who might have been hastily admitted to Canada to fulfill Trudeau’s election promise.

Is it time to start worrying about a border fence with Canada?

‘We are at war’ says European writer, mass Muslim migration is the cause

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 4, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…..

In the wake of the latest Islamic terrorist attack, this time in Belgium, a writer who says he is weary (he should be he has been writing and warning about the escalating Islamic violence in Europe for at least ten years, maybe longer, but that’s when I began reading Fjordman’s work) penned an essay posted at Gates of Vienna last week.

mass-migration

We live in incredible times! The invasion of Europe is happening before our eyes and the invaders are being welcomed!

This is the section that jumped out at me:

After the many Islamic terror attacks in Europe in 2015 and 2016, several Western political leaders have stated that we are at “war.”[8] Yes, we are. But at war with whom? Are we supposed to wage war against an enemy we don’t even dare to name?

The cause of this situation is very simple: Mass immigration in general and Muslim immigration in particular. Western Europe did not have these problems 50 years ago. The eastern half of Europe that has not been widely subjected to Muslim immigration does not face the same problems today. All those who have promoted or accepted Muslim immigration are responsible for creating entire urban districts full of people who are plotting to murder us. And yet, they still continue.

There is much more, read it all here.

Don’t fall for the comforting big lie!

What is that?  The lie that America’s Muslims are better assimilated and we won’t have these problems.

Maybe we don’t have it as bad as Europe yet, but we will when American cities have the large Muslim populations cities like Brussels have.  It is only a matter of numbers!

I’m too lazy to do all the searching around for those population percentage numbers, but here is a 2014 article at Gatestone reporting on the high Muslim populations of cities in Belgium and The Netherlands (Fjordman thinks Holland is next).

The number of Muslims in Brussels—where roughly half of the number of Muslims in Belgium currently live—has reached 300,000, which means that the self-styled “Capital of Europe” is now one of the most Islamic cities in Europe.

In 2013, Muslims made up approximately 26% of the population of metropolitan Brussels, followed by Rotterdam (25%), Amsterdam (24%), Antwerp (17%), The Hague (14%) and Utrecht (13%), according to a panoply of research.

We hear the refrain constantly—the US is bad because we support Israel, we kill women and children in the Middle East and so many of us are ‘Islamophobic’ (LOL! Some of us like Donald Trump), but what did the people of Belgium do to justify being brutally murdered in the name of Islam?  Nothing as far as I can tell.  They have “welcomed” the Muslim migration with open arms, accommodated them,  and still get kicked in the teeth!

The comforting lie….

Have you noticed this?  A whole host of talking heads, elected officials, ‘humanitarians’ and so forth are running around saying that in America it’s different, our Muslims don’t live in impoverished situations and they have upward mobility, yada yada yada. First of all, that theory assumes that there is no Islamic component to their lives, but it isn’t true and it won’t be true if we continue to import over 100,000 (more?) a year to America.

We already see the beginning of the ‘disenfranchised’ Muslims in Minneapolis where there exists a large Somali Muslim population where 63% of Minnesota’s Somalis live below the poverty level.  So, if you want to blame violent Islamic terrorism on poverty, we have that too!

It is very simple, once the Muslim population reaches a certain level (exactly what that point is will vary), the Islamists among them become emboldened and ‘moderates’ fear them and protect them because they all know that this is about the Hijra, the migration, the creation of Islamic caliphates around the world.

The smart ones are being patient, working their way in our political system, while it’s the young hot heads, the ones who can’t wait for the generations-long change the migration take-over requires who jump the gun and want to kill us (and do kill some of us!).

Maybe in some strange way, we should welcome some Islamic terror attacks which help to alert us, wake us up! so hopefully we can stop the great demographic takeover before it is too late.

The only way to save America from the same fate as Europe, is to enact a moratorium on Muslim immigration—NOW!
