First Syrians arrive in Iowa, will get “services”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 24, 2016

Just a quickie post to make a couple of points.

The federal resettlement contractor (US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants) bringing refugees to Des Moines is the same one bringing refugees to Idaho (in that still festering controversy about the sexual abuse of a little girl by migrants from Sudan and Iraq).

Joshua Barr

Is Joshua Barr saying any immigrant (including illegals) can get welfare in Des Moines? Hmmm! Photo here:

And, for very new readers, who maybe don’t know, refugees are eligible for all forms of welfare available to Americans including SSI for the elderly and disabled.

From KCCI Des Moines:

DES MOINES, Iowa —The first Syrian refugee family to arrive in Iowa is getting help to start a new life here.

Gov. Terry Branstad ordered the state to do nothing to help those fleeing Syria, but a federal agency works with refugees here.

The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants has a field office in Des Moines, and is treating the Syrian refugees like any other refugees, by setting up an apartment and helping them settle in.

The Tameem family from Syria sat through a class with 60 immigrants from Thailand, Nepal, Malysia, Kenya and Somalia to learn the ropes in Iowa. [Have they all been tested for TB, just wondering—ed]

“When you come to the city seeking services, they cannot treat you differently based on your immigrant status,” said Joshua Barr, of the Des Moines Civil & Human Rights Commission.

Of course “services” is code for welfare of all sorts—food stamps, housing, education, medicaid etc….

Go here to see if USCRI is working in your town.   By the way, it is the same contractor planning to bring refugees to Rutland, VT and Reno, NV—got services?

  1. We are a Christian Country founded on Christian principles this will not fly here they should not be allowed to settle in here and use the people of Iowa.


  2. They need to send them right back where they came from or let them live with the democrats who think they’re such a peaceful bunch. We don’t need or want them in Iowa.


    • Veterans need services first..It will be expensive to be responsible for immigrants not vaccinated
      against polio,measles etc and be TB infected..protect the Iowa citizens first.

  4. i don’t believe that the USA should be bringing these people in here or the fact that the taxpayers have to foot the bill. this is wrong to go against Americans and they don’t want any of these people here anymore. we need to vote our corrupt leaders out of office and put them in jail where they belong and we should send all these people back. I just wonder if this is a possible takeover against our citizens .

  6. Syrian refugees.receiving all forms of welfare available to Americans including SSI for the elderly and disabled. This is not right, these deadbeats have not contributed a penny to Social Security. Many Americans only get $400 a month while these Sand People get thousands. This is Tyranny at its worse. I pray that Donald Trump is the next POTUS and he puts a stop to it. Whoever sponsors these people should be held accountable for their welfare not the USA.
