Yesterday the Dept. of State delivered Obama’s final ‘determination’ about refugee numbers for the upcoming fiscal year to Congress. For all of you sleuths out there in ‘pockets of resistance’ the document that goes along with the determination is always a very useful source of information.
For example on page 60 the State Department predicts that Obama’s 10,000 Syrian Muslims by September 30th, 2016 will actually be 13,000.
Also, be sure to go to near the end (p.69) to see how they are estimating a much lower cost than would be expected for 110,000 refugees. Are they trying to fool the Judiciary Committees in to thinking it is all less costly while the Appropriations Committees know the truth (do they talk to each other?).
Click hereto see the full (very useful) document (if you find anything juicy let me know!):
Michael Patrick Leahy writing at Breitbart reported yesterday on yet another case of active Tuberculosis in the refugee flow to America. I will wager that the vast majority of Americans have no idea that refugees are walking around sometimes for weeks and months with TB (even active TB) interacting with you in schools, stores, and in the workplace.
An Iraqi refugee who arrived in Oakland County, Michigan in June 2015 was diagnosed with active tuberculosis (TB) in March of this year, a spokesperson for the Oakland County Health and Human Services Department (OCHD) tells Breitbart News.
This is one more important reason why the House and Senate Judiciary Committees should be holding hearings right now!
In addition to following the law which requires Congressional hearings before the new fiscal year begins, hearings would begin to lay the ground work for extensive reform of the Refugee Admissions Program in a new administration.
Yesterday conservative writer Daniel Horowitz reported on the Obama Administration’s announcement that they are shooting for admitting 110,000 refugees to be placed in your towns starting on October 1.
I’m sure you are shouting at the computer at this very minute—how can he do that he is out of here in only a few short months! Well, he can if Congress gives him the funding and the pass that every Congress for the last 35 years has given the administration on the subject of refugees.
Before I tell you more of what Daniel Horowitz said, his vitally important point is this one! Are we going to stand silent and lose our sovereignty, to be overrun as Europe is today? Indeed, do we want to be Europe?***
“It would be a crying shame for conservatives not to harness this very potent issue and make the election a referendum on whether America will become like Europe or not.”
Now here is a bit of what else he said yesterday, but please read the whole thingbecause he presents some very good ideas for reforming the entire program.
Earlier today, pursuant to the Refugee Act of 1980, which requires the State Department to consult with Congress on the annual level of refugee intake, the Obama administration announced its plans to admit 110,000 refugees in FY 2017 beginning October 1. That is a 25,000 net increase from this current fiscal year level, and a 40,000 net increase from most recent years. It is also 10,000 more than the State Department projected for FY 2017 during last September’s consultation with Congress.
Are the people and their representatives powerless in stopping this forced transformation?
As I wrote in Stolen Sovereignty, Ted Kennedy promised that the 1980 refugee bill would limit the flow of refugees and increase Congressional input in the process. Refugee intake was to be capped at 50,000 a year. But in a sleight of hand that the public would have never approved had it been advertised in a transparent way, the president was granted de facto unilateral authority to increase the flow over and beyond the 50,000 cap beginning in 1983 — in consultation with Congress.
But, don’t forget, and Horowitz tells us too—Congress holds the power to defund the Refugee Admissions Program right now!
And, by the way, it isn’t just about the Presidential election in November. All of your members of Congress are up for election and one third of the US Senate. Find them on the campaign trail and let them know what you think!

Angela Merkel was telling anyone who would listen that Germany would welcome any Middle Easterners and Africans who could get there. She wanted to be a humanitarian, but she claimed Germany needed more workers as well. Looks like she was very very wrong about that. In fact, this issue of bringing in hundreds of thousands of low-skilled workers (as the US is doing too) is a ticking time bomb!
What with innovation in the workplace requiring fewer such workers and welfare systems being strained worldwide, what will happen to all these unhappy foreigners who have neither cultural roots nor upward mobility in their new countries.
It continues to escape me why this migration project, pushed by the international Left and supported by leaders like Merkel, is humane in any way!
Germany’s blue-chip companies will have to explain to Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday why they have managed to hire fewer than 100 refugees after around a million arrived in the country last year.
Merkel, fighting for her political life over her open-door policy, has summoned the bosses of some of Germany’s biggest companies to Berlin to account for their lack of action and exchange ideas about how they can do better.
Many of the companies say a lack of German-language skills, the inability of most refugees to prove any qualifications, and uncertainty about their permission to stay in the country mean
A survey by Reuters of the 30 companies in Germany’s DAX stock market index found they could point to just 63 refugee hires in total. Several of the 26 firms who responded said they considered it discriminatory to ask about applicants’ migration history, so they did not know whether they employed refugees or how many.
Of the 63 hires, 50 are employed by Deutsche Post DHL, which said it applied a “pragmatic approach” and deployed the refugees to sort and deliver letters and parcels.
“Given that around 80 percent of asylum seekers are not highly qualified and may not yet have a high level of German proficiency, we have primarily offered jobs that do not require technical skills or a considerable amount of interaction in German,” a spokesman said by email.
What is clear is that early optimism that the wave of migrants could boost economic growth and help ease a skills shortage in Germany – where the working-age population is projected to shrink by 6 million people by 2030 – is evaporating.
