Breaking news! White House kicking off Welcoming Refugee Week today

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 15, 2016


Talk to Madeleine today! Won’t that be fun!

As I have been saying, the refugee industry has a masterful media propaganda campaign backing Obama’s last big push to change America by changing its people.

In less than 30 minutes the White House launches its part of the highly orchestrated Refugee Extravaganza leading up to Obama’s United Nations shindig this coming Tuesday.

Get in on the action!

If you tweet, use #RefugeesWelcome and #WelcomingWeek

Tell them what you think!

From the White House Press Office (hat tip: James):

This week kicks off National Welcoming Week, during which communities honor the contributions of immigrants and refugees and highlight efforts to build stronger, more prosperous communities that seek to welcome everyone.

Today, the White House is hosting Welcoming Refugees: Honoring Refugee Integration and Refugee Voices. This special event will convene faith-based groups, refugee resettlement organizations, local governments, refugee leaders, and others to lift up innovative refugee integration initiatives and celebrate the outstanding contributions of refugees across the country.

I’ll be there with White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. You can follow along at from 2:30p.m. to 5:30p.m. EST and share your thoughts on social media using the hashtags #RefugeesWelcome and #WelcomingWeek.

Our county has a rich tradition of welcoming refugees. Over the past 40 years, our nation has resettled over 3.2 million refugees from countries that span the globe.

President Obama believes that we are stronger as a nation when we welcome immigrants and refugees into our communities and harness their skills.

This year, we are proud to announce that we have met our goal of welcoming 10,000 Syrian refugees a month ahead of schedule, and we are well on our way to welcoming 85,000 refugees to our shores in 2016. And in 2017, we will seek to resettle 110,000 refugees, increasing the number of people we receive by almost 60 percent over a two-year period.

Thanks for being part of this vital conversation and for acting to make #RefugeesWelcome.

    Thank you, NumbersUSA! There is now a FAX posted on the member Action Board about Obama’s 2017 refugee numbers request. Folks if you haven’t done so yet, please consider becoming a NumbersUSA member (free). They make it easy to contact your Congressional reps either telephonically or via FAX. When NumbersUSA members spring into action, the thousands of FAXs and phone calls have been successful in stopping comprehensive immigration reform.

    This is another last gasp effort by this administration to “fundamentally change” America. We have to keep up the calls and continue to push back on this nonsense. All you have to do is too look at the refugees that have come already. Are they contributing to the American Dream? No they are taking American tax dollars and creating their own subculture. We have to continue to “Just Say NO!”.


  7. […] of the plan to place 100 Syrian and Iraqi refugees in Flint, Michigan comes on the day the White House kicks off Welcoming Refugee Week, which will be capped off by an event next week at the United […]


  8. I have repeatedly written and called my Representative in the House, and both Senators who are both less than worthless: Rubio (wants millions more cheap labor for the Fanjul family and his donors) and Bill Nelson who refused to mention the connection between the Pulse shooter and islam. I do believe if we can bury them in a tsunami of email and calls, we can make a dent.

      I agree, even if they don’t listen, at least they need to know everyone is watching. You know the Open borders Left never gives up, they nag and nag year after year, we have to get used to doing the same thing (in addition to getting them unelected).


  9. taxpayer funding resettlement take over of America by our trusted officials. treason.


  10. What a complete waste of taxpayer money and propaganda aimed at shoving this program down our throats. I have an idea! Why don’t you put it off until next February when President Trump is at the helm. We’ll let him decide what he wants to do with this worthless agency, and hundreds of others just like it. And that’s how he’s going to fund the new Child Care Program and others like it.

      What they are doing now is setting it up so that when Trump gets in and wants to drastically scale back they will say he is mean and unfair because 110,000 ARE ALREADY IN THE PIPELINE. If Hillary gets in they just keep on rolling!

    Hi Ann:One of the islands of hope which deserve our respect is the country of Hungary.Thought you might be interested in an email I just sent to their Consulate in NYC.

    International aid for persecuted Christians     – – Michael Dersch – – Today at 2:30 PM

    – To –    Dear Mr. Ferenc Kumin PhD, Consul General:I hope that you are well.I just read an article  ….. “Hungary says it is setting up a special department to coordinate the assistance and rescue of persecuted Christians around the world. Janos Lazar, Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s chief of staff, said Thursday that the 10-person office will seek to organize international aid for persecuted Christians when the work of private and nonprofit groups proves insufficient. Lazar says the new department within the Ministry of Human Resources was inspired by a recent trip the prime minister took to Rome, where he met with representatives of Eastern Christian churches. Lazar says the meetings made clear “there would be a great need for European government organizations to take this issue”  ….I wanted to thank you and your countrymen/women for such a critical effort.  I’m appalled at what I read and see on the news regarding the treatment of Christians by muslims around the world.  The violence, death, suffering has to be the most swept under the rug atrocity on this planet. I’ve been wanting to reach out in some way to Hungary, to express my respect for your country.  I have never been there, but it’s clear that in Prime Minister Mr. Viktor Orbán, you have an exceptional leader.  A leader who can clearly see what is going on in the world every day, and refuses to allow is people to become victims.  A leader who puts his own country and his own people and their culture first.  I’m a citizen of the USA.  Born here (NYC).  And sadly, I have forgotten what it’s like to have a leader who puts the USA and its people first.  We are, in fact, being put last, with the goal of punishing Americans for perceived wrongs of the past. Thank you again, and please let me know if there is a central agency of which I can donate to.  Sincerely,Michael S. DerschKinnelon, NJ
