When do-gooders don’t do good!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 23, 2016

Two stories I want to bring to your attention were posted over the last couple of days that call in to question whether the resettlement industry (both the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement and its NGO contractors) is even taking proper care of the migrants they are responsible for.

So the next time you hear the pleas of government-funded bleeding heart humanitarians saying that we need to bring more poor souls to America, remember these reports and know that some refugees are very sorry they came!

[Congress could tweek the Refugee Admissions Program if it had the will! see below!]

The first story is at World Net Daily about how the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement has LOST some of the so-called unaccompanied alien children they claim are refugees—one little boy in particular—but reportedly thousands.

After telling the story of ‘Missing child W,’ reporter Leo Hohmann reports on comments from Jessica Vaughan, an immigration expert at the Center for Immigration Studies:

Sadly, the case of missing child “W” is not unique, says an expert in federal immigration policy.

10-year old Walter was supposedly placed in this South Carolina home, but no one there knows anything about him.

‘Asking as few questions as possible’

The problem has become endemic under the Obama administration’s slack procedures for dealing with unaccompanied minors from Central America, said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington. And local communities often end up getting stuck with the problem – and the cost.

“From the beginning, instead of putting the welfare of the kids first, the priority of the Obama administration has been to turn over the kids to anyone who would claim them, asking as few questions as possible, and deliberately oblivious as to whether the child was being placed in a safe environment,” Vaughan told WND.

For the sake of political expediency, she said the government wants a rapid turnover, and is willing to sacrifice all checks and safeguards to ensure the safety of the kids.

“The contractors [this includes the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service—both receive millions of tax dollars to care for the children.—ed] who were awarded public funds to handle the kids admit that they have lost track of most of them, and a U.S. Senate investigation has found that some were turned straight over to indentured labor camps or to abusive adults,” said Vaughan, who in February testified before a House subcommittee on the problem of child migrants being swept up into human trafficking networks.

“The Obama administration wants the public to believe that we are saving these kids, but in reality their policies are enriching human smugglers and traffickers and resettlement contractors, while putting too many of the kids in more danger,” she said.

Continue reading here.

Then there is this story by Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart which chronicles some of the horror stories from refugees placed in the care of nine major federal resettlement contractors—stories, some of which, we have reported on these pages over the years.

Leahy begins:

When Eritrean refugee Mulugeta Zemu Mana was recently arraigned in a courtroom in Twin Falls, Idaho, on charges of aggravated battery, he told the presiding judge, “The only guilt I have is the day I decided to come to this country.”

mana

Refugee Mulugeta Zemu Mana wishes he never came to America!

Mana’s lack of gratitude and anti-Americanism is a painful revelation of the social turmoil and economic pain among the 70,000 refugees, half of whom are Muslim, who arrive in the U.S. every year.

But it is also the predictable outcome of the lucrative, federal taxpayer financed refugee resettlement industry which is now headed by former Clinton and Obama administration appointees. The industry rejects America’s traditional policy of assimilating refugees into the country, and instead treats refugees more as revenue-generating opportunities that boost their income and political power.

There is much more here.

Where is Congress?

One fix that Congress could quickly make is to set up a repatriation fund so that unhappy ‘refugees’ (and other immigrants too) could tap into it for a plane ticket home.

And, I don’t want to hear any squawking about the cost—it would be much cheaper than incarcerating them or keeping them on welfare!

The true humanitarian do-gooders should have no objections! Right?

LOL! There is one other side benefit:  such a plan would help sort out the resettlement contractors by helping to identify which are doing the best job of taking care of the refugees they have acquired in their federal contracts.

Note to Soros and Sutherland on DC rally this Sunday: the jig is up

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 23, 2016

Writer Willliam Jasper at The New American isn’t pulling any punches as he lays out the strategy and the actors for this Sunday’s Rally for Refugees in Washington, DC. (We told you about it here).

sutherland

Breitbart London also confirmed the link between Sutherland and George Soros and the globalists plan to open borders world wide. http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/08/20/soros-leaks-un-chief-behind-scenes-advocate/

Here is Jasper yesterday (emphasis is mine):

The professional Soros migration/refugee agitators are rallying the street radicals to come to Washington, D.C., this Sunday, August 28. The aim of #DCRally4Refugees is to whip up the appearance of popular support for the UN’s September 19 Refugee Summit and President Obama’ plan to “surge” thousands more Syrian “refugees” into American communities.

The #DCRally4Refugees is being organized by dozens of radical-Left groups funded by billionaire hedge fund mogul George Soros (shown) and his Open Society Foundations. As we reported last week, hacked documents from the Open Society Foundations (OSF) database have confirmed what was long known to readers of The New American: that the plethora of “grassroots” NGOs lobbying for the United States to take in more refugees and more migrants is, in reality, a phony Astroturf setup of professional revolutionaries financed by corporate globalists.

Moreover, OSF’s secret e-mails, memos, and reports posted by the DCLeaks.com hacktivists also reveal the incestuous, behind-the-scenes coordination among the Soros-financed street revolutionaries and their high-level consorts in the Obama administration and the United Nations.

One of the key globalist Insiders in the planned massive refugee resettlement scheme is the UN Secretary General’s Special Representative on International Migration Peter Sutherland. As we have pointed out in previous reports, Sutherland, the former chairman of Goldman Sachs International and British Petroleum (BP), is a top-level member of the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, the Transatlantic Policy Network, and other world-government-promoting organizations, and is one of the key architects of the ongoing Muslim migration tsunami that is currently devastating Europe. Sutherland will also be one of the principal speakers at the UN Refugee Summit in September, according to the UN’s press office.

As part of its effort to project the appearance of popular support for more refugee resettlement, the #DCRally4Refugees is urging activists to sign online and postcard petitions to Congress stating their strong support for the refugee influx and their opposition to legislative efforts in Congress that would impede the planned migration deluge.

Continue reading here to follow links.  There is much more including a full list of the sponsors of Sunday’s planned propaganda stunt. Mysteriously absent is one usual player—-the US Conference of Catholic Bishops/Catholic Charities.  Boy would I like to know what that is all about!

Jasper’s list seems to have omitted Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service which was in the original list.  But, the USCCB is absent and thus 8 of 9 federal resettlement contractors will be backing the event which is ultimately aimed at bringing more money (your money!) into their coffers.

We previously reported on Sutherland’s role in changing Europe by changing the people, here.

First African refugees arrive in Montana; Helena advocates say they will wait until after November for theirs

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 23, 2016

Update: Be sure to see the mayor of Missoula’s op-ed of a few days ago.  Not so much for what he says, but for the large numbers of comments on both sides of the issue.  Makes you realize that there is a huge divide in Montana about whether it is wise to bring in the third world.

A family of 6 “Congolese” refugees have arrived in Missoula, MT as the first “east African” refugees we are told. (The Congo and the DR Congo are not in east Africa.  The countries producing refugees in east Africa are Somalia, Ethiopia and Sudan. Just saying!)

Stephen Maly

Stephen Maly of World Montana has been advocating for refugees to be placed in Helena, but says he is backing off until after the November elections. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2015/06/26/montana-alert-group-wants-to-bring-in-syrian-refugees-to-replace-your-aging-population/

Here is the story (Montana Public Radio) on the family that will be very costly for Montana and US taxpayers to support:

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — An exhausted Congelese family of six experiencing culture shock has arrived in Missoula, the first of an anticipated 100 east African refugees expected to be resettled in Montana over the next year, a resettlement agency official said.

The family arrived last Thursday and International Rescue Committee Missoula director Molly Short Carr declined to identify them because of privacy concerns, but said three of the family’s four children spent their entire lives in a Tanzanian refugee camp.

Temporary housing?  The US State Department normally requires that they be placed in permanent housing upon arrival, and heck this contractor in Missoula has had months to get housing organized.

The family has been placed in temporary housing. The IRC will help them apply for social services, Social Security cards, register the children for school and help the parents enroll in English classes. The parents speak Swahili and French.

A total of 25 refugees are expected to arrive in Missoula by the end of September. Missoula County commissioners previously invited 100 refugees a year to resettle in the county, and the IRC re-opened its Missoula office earlier this year.

Meanwhile advocates for diversifying Montana in Helena say they will wait until after the November election to renew their call for Africans/Middle Easterners for their city.

Great Falls Tribune (hat tip: Joanne):

HELENA – The head of an effort to relocate Syrian refugees to Helena said Monday the group is delaying efforts until after the Nov. 8 election, saying the current political climate has stifled progress.

Stephen Maly, vice president of World Montana, said a grass-roots effort to bring Syrian refugees has been in “arrested development because of political turmoil surrounding the issue.”

“We’re trying to make progress without getting involved in politics,” he said.

Maly said there is draft legislation for the 2017 session to change refugee policy. But that is a federal issue and “not in the state bailiwick.”

He said the timing is horrible for his group of volunteers “to push something forward in political climate. People are misinformed and angry.”

“It’s not in the cards until the election is settled,” he said.

Continue reading and see how the subject of refugees has become a big issue in the gubernatorial contest there.  This is the sort of effort you should make where you live—inject the refugee controversy in to any race you can in your state!

But, it also confirms what we have been saying—November is it! If Hillary is elected the flood gates to the third world will be flung wide open!

See our extensive archive on Montana, here. And, why are we getting so many refugees from the DR Congo? Because in 2013 the Obama Administration said we would take 50,000 because the UN told us to!
