A letter to the citizens of Radford, Virginia (a new targeted resettlement site)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 29, 2016

I’m not going to snip this must-read article published by Jeff Bayard at the Virginia Free Citizen today because I want you to go there and read the whole thing!  Bayard has nailed it—this is exactly what you can expect if your town is secretly chosen.

Radford, Virginia is apparently joining other towns that the UN/US State Department and their contractors have quietly targeted as new ‘welcoming’ (Ha!) resettlement locations.

The feds and the contractors and sub-contractors (like Catholic Charities) are anticipating increased numbers of refugees to be coming in to the country and they are running out of places to put them as existing resettlement towns (approximately 200 of them!) are becoming overloaded and community discord has set in.

We have reported on plans for new sites in Missoula, MT, Charleston, WV, Reno, NV, Ithaca, NY, Rutland, VT, and Fayetteville, AR, so far, just in the last few months.

Now here is a letter “to the citizens of Radford, VA” This is it in a nutshell!  The grassroots in Virginia have been studying how this program works for some time now and this essential article shows it!

    I have many many friends living and working in beautiful Radford, Va…. I sent some of them copies of this to share with their friends and neighbors and hopefully to begin going en masse to the city council meetings and demand a stop to it before it starts! It will be very interesting to hear back how many of them even have heard of this in their small town!

  5. Here’s what I posted on that article you just posted:

    Dear Virginians, So sorry this is happening to you – in 2015 we got our first refugees – just a few and now we’re getting 200. We were promised no Syrians, but that promise was never sincere and we immediately got a Syrian family. Once the spigot is turned on, you have only a short window to make enough fuss to shut it but your local officials have to cooperate as they did in Caycee, SC, Greenville, SC, and Athens, Ga. If they refuse to cooperate, all the protests in the city will not stop the refugee flow. There’s a 111 page booklet on the RRP from the standpoint of Spartanburg that you might want to see – similar to what the editor provides here, just more in depth. I will be happy to send it to you – just contact me via FB.
