Traveling to Washington, DC soon? Check out the Refugee Act of 1980 on display!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 13, 2016


Wow!  I didn’t know, but since I’ll be in DC next week I might just have to stop at the National Archives for this important display.

I sure hope it is still there since it opened last November (but could find no information when the display would close).  Got to give them credit, they are working hard on their PR campaign!

By the way, you might want to have a look at what Senator Ted Kennedy had to say about his baby—the bill that was ultimately signed into law by Jimmy Carter, here.

Kennedy wasn’t alone, here are the other chief Senate sponsors of the bill:

Sen Biden, Joseph R., Jr. [DE] –
Sen Boschwitz, Rudy [MN] –
Sen Hatfield, Mark O. [OR] –
Sen Javits, Jacob K. [NY] –
Sen Levin, Carl [MI] –
Sen McGovern, George [SD] –
Sen Moynihan, Daniel Patrick [NY] –
Sen Pell, Claiborne [RI] –
Sen Randolph, Jennings [WV] –
Sen Ribicoff, Abraham A. [CT] –
Sen Riegle, Donald W., Jr. [MI] –
Sen Sarbanes, Paul S. [MD] –
Sen Tsongas, Paul E. [MA] –
Sen Williams, Harrison A., Jr. [NJ]

I wrote about the law here in 2013.

If you plan to visit, call the archives first to be sure the law, that is changing your cities and towns, is still being showcased!

    IRS Allows Illegal Immigrants to Steal SSNs for Tax-Filing Purposes

    IRS Commissioner John Koskinen struggled to explain on Tuesday why the IRS has been allowing illegal immigrants to illegally use Social Security numbers that don’t belong to them.

    “What we learned is that … the IRS continues to process tax returns with false W-2 information and issue refunds as if they were routine tax returns, and say that’s not really our job,” Coats said. “We also learned the IRS ignores notifications from the Social Security Administration that a name does not match a Social Security number, and you use your own system to determine whether a number is valid.”

    The IRS website instructs tax preparers that undocumented workers can and should include on their tax returns any income they’ve earned using a Social Security number — even though the IRS admits non-resident aliens are not legally eligible to receive a Social Security number in the first place!


  3. This country shouldn’t be taking in “refugees”, or anyone else, until every single one of our own poor and needy people have been helped. I see plenty of people living on the side of the road under tarps and in tents, and many American children don’t get enough to eat. How dare the government be so generous with our tax money, when our own people need help so badly.
