In my previous post I told you that it is not too late to tell key members of Congress to protect your towns by cutting funding in the Continuing Resolution this week for refugee admissions for 2017 from terror-producing regions of the world.
Again, those crossed off below have already taken a brave position. Focus your calls on those in bold below!
Jim Jordan of Ohio, Chair Justin Amash of Michigan Brian Babin of Texas Rod Blum of Iowa Dave Brat of Virginia Jim Bridenstine of Oklahoma Mo Brooks of Alabama Ken Buck of Colorado Curt Clawson of Florida Warren Davidson of Ohio Ron DeSantis of Florida Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee Jeff Duncan of South Carolina John Fleming of Louisiana Trent Franks of Arizona Scott Garrett of New Jersey Louie Gohmert of Texas Paul Gosar of Arizona Morgan Griffith of Virginia Andy Harris of Maryland Jody Hice of Georgia Walter Jones of North Carolina Steve King of Iowa Raúl Labrador of Idaho Barry Loudermilk of Georgia Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming Mark Meadows of North Carolina Alex Mooney of West Virginia Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina Gary Palmer of Alabama Steve Pearce of New Mexico Scott Perry of Pennsylvania Ted Poe of Texas Bill Posey of Florida Keith Rothfus of Pennsylvania Matt Salmon of Arizona Mark Sanford of South Carolina David Schweikert of Arizona Marlin Stutzman of Indiana Randy Weber of Texas Ted Yoho of Florida
Don’t know who your Congressman is, click hereand put in your zipcode.
So, time is of the essence to call your member of Congress and tell him/her to follow the appeal laid out in the Babin/Brat letter.
Tell your member to call the leadership and urge them to cut the funds for refugees from terror producing parts of the world.
The key leadership in the House who should be hearing from their fellow Republicans (and from you) are:
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan
Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy
Rep. Hal Rogers (Chairman of the Appropriations Committee)
Again, your member should call those three and tell them to cut the funding for refugees coming from terror-producing regions of the world (I would tell them to halt the whole program to be reviewed when a new Administration arrives in Washington).
The timing could not be better in light of the Somali terror attack in St. Cloud yesterday and it is looking like an Afghan, legally admitted to the US, might have been responsible for the attack in New York and the failed attack in NJ over the weekend.
We promised to give you the full list of those who bravely signed on to the Babin/Brat letter, they should be commended and urged to hang tough. (All Republicans in Congress were presumably given an opportunity to sign this letter last week and unless listed below, they obviously failed to do so.)
(Prime targets for your appeal should be to the House Freedom Caucus. Everyone of them should have signed the Babin/Brat letter. Those who did sign are listed below.) ***Update*** I’ve compared the lists for you, go here to see House Freedom Caucus members who haven’t supported Babin/Brat.
We told you months ago that Reno, NV was on the list to get a refugee resettlement office for the first time. You can see the abstract submitted by the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) here.
This is the puff-piece about the first family of refugees from the DR Congo (we are taking 50,000) and the welcome they received. Most of the Congolese are not Muslims but a small percentage are.
Note two things: first that this family had a home in Uganda (these are not destitute camp dwellers) and that there will be a public meeting on Wednesday night (the 21st) to (LOL!) answer the public’s questions, but alas (they must have chosen a small venue on purpose) and it is sold out. You have got to watch on line (so there goes the opportunity to make any noise).
I have to give them credit, the feds and their contractors/subcontractors really know how to get these offices up and running in secrecy.
But, this is the important news we learned:
The US State Department has chosen 47 new towns to be primary resettlement sites this year! Has your’s been chosen and you don’t even know about it yet?
The Musungus are among 75 refugees coming to Reno over the next year as part of a refugee resettlement project sponsored by the Northern Nevada International Center. The nonprofit applied earlier this year to be one of 47 new sites chosen by the State Department to accept refugees from worn-torn countries.
While in Uganda, he was able to live better than mostby using some of his musical background to work as a sound engineer, later moving up to managing a band that played in hotels. It gave the family enough to rent a home, but they were constantly required to check in with government officials regarding their status.
I bet they ‘sold out’ the event by stacking it with friendlies!
RGJ.com [that is the local newspaper—ed] and the Northern Nevada International Center will host a town hall meeting Wednesday, Sept. 21 to answer questions about the resettlement of conflict-zone refugees in Reno-Sparks.
The event is sold out. You can watch the event live from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on the RGJ’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/RGJMedia.
Breitbarthas a story pinning the blame for the large number of Somalis in the US on Hillary Clinton, but let’s be fair! Every President’s State Department since the early ’80’s has admitted Somalis to America.
I’ve taken the numbers I had gathered and grouped them by the President whose State Department was admitting the refugees. If, as we are told, the St. Cloud jihadist came to America with his family 15 years ago, that would have put him in Clinton’s last bunch or Bush’s first bunch.
We have been taking Somalis ever since Somalia’s civil war in the 1980’s. Why is it our problem if the myriad Somali clans can’t get along or govern themselves!
The numbers below are only for the US Refugee Admissions Program!
(These numbers do not include other ways Somalis have entered the US such as Temporary Protected Status, Diversity Visa Lottery winners, asylum seekers, students and other who over-stayed visas, or illegal aliens we have not yet found.)
Reagan and Bush (the first): 4,413
(Black Hawk Down, Oct. 3, 1993)
Bill Clinton: 35,635
George W. Bush (43): 48,865
2002: 242 (Guesses why this is so low? 9/11 freaked everyone out!)
2008: 2,523 (family reunification suspended when widespread fraud discovered)
2016 (one month short of a full year): 7,954 (1,099 went to Minnesota in the last 11 months)
2017: Technically this is O’s too because he is right now (September 2016) making the decision for 2017.
I figured (above) for the first year of a new President, who comes in to office almost 4 months after the fiscal year began, he is not responsible for that year’s refugee numbers.
The question everyone should be asking this week, after noticing that security screening is useless if the Muslim ‘youths’ we raised with our tax dollars grow up to be killers, is, WHY ARE WE STILL TAKING IN SOMALIS GOING ON 4 DECADES! WHY DID WE TAKE THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE? WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR SOMALIA FOREVER ARE WE?
Call your Member of Congress and US Senators today and all week! Tell them to cut off the flow of migrants from terror-producing countries by cutting off the funding in the Continuing Resolution!
