Why you should send testimony to Senator Sessions’ Immigration Subcommittee

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 2, 2016

O.K. I’ve been hearing a lot of excuses about why some of you don’t want to be bothered doing this!

Sorry folks, but saving America is going to be hard work and this is the least you can do—spend an hour writing a proper, polite letter to Senator Sessions who held a hearing last week on Obama’s final determination as President to bring in 110,000 refugees this fiscal year (the new flow began yesterday!).  Go here for a report on the hearing. The security issues were front and center.

And, here is my post from Friday on sending testimony (a letter) to the Subcommittee.


I don’t want to hear about the postal service and how slow it is! I don’t want to hear that they don’t listen to us anyway! I don’t want to hear, why can’t we send postcards (make it easy for us)! Or, that the deadline is too soon and you don’t have an hour today or tomorrow! No excuses are acceptable.

The reasons to write are as follows:

~Senator Sessions took time to hold a hearing (only the second since 9/11) and should know that you care and appreciate that by taking time to write a real letter!

~Senator Sessions needs to know how many of you are working hard and are seriously concerned enough to write a letter (not just blast off an angry e-mail or send a pre-printed post card).

~Senator Sessions is an advisor to the Donald Trump campaign and maybe through your efforts this week, a message may be sent to the campaign about how much this issue matters to so many of you.

~Senator Sessions needs to hear that based on your experience you have suggestions for reforming the program.

~Your Senators and Member of Congress (however useless they are) must be copied on the testimony so they know that you are serious about your opposition to how the program is being administered. Attach a note to your testimony and ask that your representative respond that they received it.

~The Subcommittee can keep the hearing record open longer, but whether you make it into the record is not the important point (hardly anyone ever looks at the published document two months from now anyway). Just get something off in the mail tomorrow or use the fax number I provided here (or do both fax and mail).

~Your testimony now should be used by you locally to energize your fellow activists and it will be a good reason to get some local media. Send a letter to the editor of your local paper and say that you testified in writing to a Senate committee and summarize what you said.

~You are not expected to be an expert on the law, or sound like you are a lawyer!

~Your testimony does not need to be a monster summary of your situation and your concerns.  You can pick one or two key points about why you believe the UN/US State Department program needs to be halted/reformed.*** They are spending your money for it!  There is no wrong or right thing to say, just be polite.  Hint! If you don’t have a problem yet where you live, then find some specific thing you’ve seen here at RRW that is particularly concerning. 

Believe it or not, regular readers here probably know more about problems with the program than most Senate staffers do! You are educating them!

I am not a Pollyanna who thinks that Congress is going to save us tomorrow or this week.  I am not raising your expectations that your letter will make THE difference, or any difference.  I am saying that by not saying anything (by making excuses about the postal system) that you are giving up already.

Many of you talk big about how angry you are, you rant and rave at Obama and Hillary, you get into squabbles on social media, you are reading news all over the net all day and sending news to me, you send me ideas on what Congress should do, and then you tell me you haven’t an hour or two to write a letter to Senator Sessions, one of the few friends you have ever had in the Senate! 

This is one easy thing to do, and if you can’t do it, you are not ready for the major battles ahead.

Endnote:  I have gotten some copies of excellent letters to Senator Sessions over the last two days and I’m thinking about posting some of them (with permission of course). And, LOL!, I have a confession! I will have to force myself to write my letter today when I would rather be posting hot news here or tweeting or whatever!

***Update: For example, for those of you having problems (which is most of you) getting a copy of the FY2017 R & P Abstract, tell Senator Sessions about that.  I will bet that most Senate staffers will have no clue what you are talking about, so you will be educating them!

    Ann, sorry about the length of this post, but this is what I am sending to Senator Jeff Sessions – who cared enough to ask for Americans’ input on this issue:

    The Honorable Jeff Sessions
    Senate Judiciary Committee
    Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest
    U.S. Senate
    Washington, DC 20510

    Oct. 3, 2016

    Dear Senator Sessions:

    What so many people talking about “vetting” the so-called “refugees” seem to forget is that it’s NOT just about jihadis sneaking in through the “refugee” pipeline. The problem is izlam (sic – on purpose) itself – and demographics!

    muzlims (sic – on purpose) have as many children as possible. (All future candidates for “Sudden Jihad Syndrome” when they grow up.) The “hijra”, its origins with Mad Mo (Mohammed), its application throughout history, and its application TODAY is by far the more serious threat. THAT is how muzlims “izlamize” nations and whole continents: IMMIGRATION.

    Back in the 1960s, when so many European nations were taking in muzlims, their numbers were small so there wasn’t much of a threat. Their numbers have exploded in recent years (thanks to Frau Merkel), and look what has followed: skyrocketing crime, sharia “no go zones”, rape, murder, and yes, terrorism. The fact that the countries of Europe ALLOW muzlim polygyny, and seem to think that the taxpaying citizens must fork over the “jizya” (welfare) for muzlim men, their SEVERAL wives, and many children are all a part and parcel of what is killing the once-free nations of Europe.

    Case in point: London is now apparently home to as many (or more) muzlims as non-muzlims. They elected London’s first muzlim mayor, Sadiq Khan, who is openly telling his muzlim co-religionists NOT to assimilate or integrate. On top of that, Khan now claims that terrorism (he does NOT say MUZLIM terrorism) is now the “new normal”; and, in effect, to get used to it. Sorry, no. Especially when muzlims here in the U.S. are once again celebrating muzlim attacks on U.S. citizens. (Khan: “‘We are the West’, he asserted, insisting that it is ‘compatible to be someone with Western liberal values… [and] to be a mainstream Muslim’”.) No, Mr. Khan, it is NOT possible “to be someone with Western liberal values and to be a mainstream muslim”.

    Case in point: Sweden has now become the rape capital of Europe – and the Swedish peoples’ so-called “leaders” not only don’t give a falling fig for the welfare of their own people (particularly the women and children), but have actually passed a LAW criminalizing any criticism of the leadership’s culturally suicidal policies!

    Case in point: The staggering number of sex crimes committed in a single month in Germany (July 2016) by non-White immigrants will give us an idea of the scale of this problem on an annual basis. Never before in peacetime have the women of any single nation been sexually assaulted and raped on such an industrial scale.
    Females of all ages, from toddlers to women in their late seventies, are included in the grim statistics. Most of the victims are young rather than old; and their assailants, who are of all ages, are almost invariably single men who are described coyly in official documents as “Southerners”, or, more audaciously, as “dark-skinned foreigners”.

    Case in point: WASHINGTON – Muslims from around the world are coming to America to wage “settlement jihad” and implement Shariah law, a Department of Homeland security whistleblower warns. The eye-opening observations were made by former Department of Homeland Security officer Philip Haney at the ACT for America 2016 Conference Tuesday. Haney warned that most Muslims do not migrate to America with the intention of assimilating into American culture.

    “The observant Muslim base is the reason for civilizational and/or settlement jihad,” he said. “That is why they are immigrating to America, to come and coalesce into one solid unit with the intention – and it is intentional – to implement Shariah law, which according to Islamic theology is the grace and gift to mankind.”

    As a Customs and Border Protection officer, Haney gathered a plethora of valuable intelligence on the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic organizations. However, in 2009 his superiors ordered him to eliminate critical “linking information” from about 820 records he had entered into CBP’s internal database.

    Haney said the Obama administration refused to investigate Muslim Brotherhood members as terrorists because it relied on the Brotherhood and other Muslim groups with ties to terrorism to help shape U.S. counter-terrorism policy. The Muslim Brotherhood is a supremacist group known for establishing scores of fronts – including the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR – that pose as civil rights organizations.

    The Brotherhood’s agenda is laid out in a document introduced into evidence by federal prosecutors during the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history, U.S. vs. Holy Land Foundation, in 2007-08. Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder abruptly ended the trial despite its success in shutting down a prime funding source for Hamas, a designated foreign terrorist organization.

    Reference articles:

    The book mentioned below is a must-read for anyone interested in the tactic of “al hijrah” – and it should be REQUIRED reading for every one of our Congressional representatives, and any and all who make decisions about who we let into our country:

    Modern Day Trojan Horse: Al-Hijra, the Islamic Doctrine of Immigration, Accepting Freedom or Imposing Islam?
    Paperback – January 29, 2009 by Sam Solomon (Author), E. Al Maqdisi (Author)

    “Rev Dr Patrick Sookhdeo Director of the Institute for the Study of Islam and Christianity: “If only one piece of information pertaining to Muslims and Islam is ever read, it would be this book on Al-Hijra.”

    N Keas Phd Lecturer and Communication Consultant: “I hope that every person in the Western world reads it, including the sleeping political elite.”

    For further reference for you, Senator Sessions:

    Here’s my $.02 on the issue:

    The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights should be amended as follows:

    The United States of America is, by its very nature, a very tolerant nation. We tolerate – and welcome – many different peoples of many different faiths who sincerely desire to become Americans and live in peace within our society. However, what this nation – and this Constitution – will NOT tolerate are peoples – and so-called religions – that are inherently hostile to this nation, its laws and its Constitution; and seek to undermine and/or supplant this Constitution and our representative form of government.

    Any such people who are hostile to this nation and its Constitutional laws should be removed – deported to wherever they came from. If these individuals became nationalized U.S. citizens, their citizenship should be revoked and they should be subsequently deported to their nation of origin. If these individuals were born as U.S. citizens, again, their citizenship should be invalidated and they should be deported to whatever nation carries the same antipathy against this nation and our Constitution and its laws.

    Furthermore, any institutions or organizations that serve those who are hostile to this nation and its laws should become illegal, and any edifices owned by those same institutions or organizations demolished. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution gives a very wide latitude to religious freedom; but it was never intended to become a suicide pact.


    These quotes are from their UN-holy book – the quran:

    2:191-193: “And slay them wherever you come upon them…”

    4:89: “They wish that you should disbelieve as they disbelieve, and then you would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them, until they emigrate in the way of Allah; then, if they turn their backs, take them, and slay them wherever you find them; take not to yourselves any one of them as friend or helper.”

    5:33: “This is the recompense of those who fight against Allah and His Messenger, and hasten about the earth, to do corruption there: they shall be slaughtered, or crucified, or their hands and feet shall alternately be struck off…”

    8:12: “When thy Lord was revealing to the angels, I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast into the unbelievers hearts terror; so smite above the necks, and smite every finger of them!”

    8:60: “Make ready for them whatever force and strings of horses you can, to terrify thereby the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides them that you know not; Allah knows them. And whatsoever you expend in the way of Allah shall be repaid you in full; you will not be wronged.”

    9:5: “Then, when the sacred months are drawn away, slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent, and perform the prayer, and pay the alms, then let them go their way; Allah is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.”

    9:29: “Fight those who believe not in Allah and the Last Day and do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden — such men as practice not the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book — until they pay the tribute out of hand and have been humbled.”

    9:111: “Allah has bought from the believers their selves and their possessions against the gift of Paradise; they fight in the way of Allah; they kill, and are killed; that is a promise binding upon Allah in the Torah, and the Gospel, and the Koran; and who fulfills his covenant truer than Allah? So rejoice in the bargain you have made with Him; that is the mighty triumph.”

    9:123: “O believers, fight the unbelievers who are near to you; and let them find in you a harshness; and know that Allah is with the godfearing.”

    47:4: “When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then, when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds; then set them free, either by grace or ransom, till the war lays down its loads.”

    From “An Explanatory Memorandum” – Muslim Brotherhood:

    “The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

    From the Muslim Brotherhood: “The Project”:

    Rather than focusing on terrorism as the sole method of group action, as is the case with Al-Qaeda, in perfect postmodern fashion the use of terror falls into a multiplicity of options available to progressively infiltrate, confront, and eventually establish Islamic domination over the West. The following tactics and techniques are among the many recommendations made in The Project:

    * Networking and coordinating actions between like-minded Islamist organizations;

    * Avoiding open alliances with known terrorist organizations and individuals to maintain the appearance of “moderation”;

    * Infiltrating and taking over existing Muslim organizations to realign them towards the Muslim Brotherhood’s collective goals;

    * Using deception to mask the intended goals of Islamist actions, as long as it doesn’t conflict with shari’a law;

    * Avoiding social conflicts with Westerners locally, nationally or globally, that might damage the long-term ability to expand the Islamist power base in the West or provoke a lash back against Muslims;

    * Establishing financial networks to fund the work of conversion of the West, including the support of full-time administrators and workers;

    * Conducting surveillance, obtaining data, and establishing collection and data storage capabilities;
    * Putting into place a watchdog system for monitoring Western media to warn Muslims of “international plots fomented against them”;

    * Cultivating an Islamist intellectual community, including the establishment of think-tanks and advocacy groups, and publishing “academic” studies, to legitimize Islamist positions and to chronicle the history of Islamist movements;

    * Developing a comprehensive 100-year plan to advance Islamist ideology throughout the world;

    * Balancing international objectives with local flexibility;

    * Building extensive social networks of schools, hospitals and charitable organizations dedicated to Islamist ideals so that contact with the movement for Muslims in the West is constant;

    * Involving ideologically committed Muslims in democratically-elected institutions on all levels in the West, including government, NGOs, private organizations and labor unions;

    * Instrumentally using existing Western institutions until they can be converted and put into service of Islam;

    * Drafting Islamic constitutions, laws and policies for eventual implementation;

    * Avoiding conflict within the Islamist movements on all levels, including the development of processes for conflict resolution;

    * Instituting alliances with Western “progressive” organizations that share similar goals;

    * Creating autonomous “security forces” to protect Muslims in the West;

    * Inflaming violence and keeping Muslims living in the West “in a jihad frame of mind”;

    * Supporting jihad movements across the Muslim world through preaching, propaganda, personnel, funding, and technical and operational support;

    * Making the Palestinian cause a global wedge issue for Muslims;

    * Adopting the total liberation of Palestine from Israel and the creation of an Islamic state as a keystone in the plan for global Islamic domination;

    * Instigating a constant campaign to incite hatred by Muslims against Jews and rejecting any discussions of conciliation or coexistence with them;

    * Actively creating jihad terror cells within Palestine;

    * Linking the terrorist activities in Palestine with the global terror movement;

    * Collecting sufficient funds to indefinitely perpetuate and support jihad around the world;

    In reading The Project, it should be kept in mind that it was drafted in 1982 when current tensions and terrorist activities in the Middle East were still very nascent. In many respects, The Project is extremely prescient for outlining the bulk of Islamist action, whether by “moderate” Islamist organizations or outright terror groups, over the past two decades.

    Senator Sessions, I realize that this is what some might call “extremely long” testimony; but I wanted you to have as much information (“ammunition”) as possible to be able to understand that the United States (and all of the other Western nations) is fighting a war for its very existence as a free and sovereign nation.

    There are few Congressmen that have your courage and patriotism. You are one of the truly “honorable” senators whose love for our country still shines forth for all to see – despite the enemedia, who give you little or no coverage whatsoever. (Too many others have apparently already sold their souls to their “New World Ordure” masters; and have spit on their respective oaths of office.)

    Thank you so much, Senator Sessions, for taking the time to read this rather lengthy missive – and thank you for caring enough about your fellow Americans to ask for their input on this issue of vital importance to ALL Americans.

    Very truly yours,

    RE: UN/US Refugee Admissions Program Oct. 2, 2016

    Dear Senator Sessions,

    Thank you for your tireless efforts working to keep America safe and asking the questions about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program that should have been asked long ago, about who is actually coming into the USA, and how they’re being “vetted.”

    So, who should enter our country?

    Statistics and history show us that women and children (versus men) and Christians and Jews (versus Muslims) are more “at risk” of death and harm in Syria, the Middle East, and North Africa. So why are 98%+ of those entering the USA as “resettled refugees” Muslim, and about 75% are men (instead of Christians, Jews, women, and children, who are at far greater risk)?!

    In order to come into our country, a “refugee candidate” must:

    1. Be able to be “background checked”

    2. Swear an OATH to protect and uphold the US Constitution ABOVE SHARIA, and

    3. Desire to learn English and assimilate (“voluntarily fit-in”) to America’s workforce and culture.

    WE are the ones who decide who (if any “high risk” immigrant or refugee groups) gain admission to the USA. “This is our house,” and only those who we deem as safe and willing to assimilate should be granted admission.

    Certain leaders in the USA have declared their intention to “fundamentally transform our nation,” and this requires that they transform our nation by determining who is coming here. We must monitor and control this process.

    My grandfather immigrated to America from Hungary in the 20’s. He came through Ellis Island and endured a long process (being health-checked, having a sponsor, etc.) just to get into America. Though they spoke Hungarian in the home, they learned to speak English in the community, and they sought, in every way to assimilate American values.

    My grandfather lived in Pittsburgh and worked in a steel mill. There was an accident in the steel mill which resulted in my grandfather (August Matta) losing a toe, but he would not leave work and wanted to continue to contribute! This is the type of immigrant to whom we should “open our doors!”

    THANK YOU, Senator Sessions, for often being a “lone voice” chairing hearings on this vital UN/US Refugee Admissions Program issue. IF we don’t get this right by: 1) helping refugees who truly are at risk, and 2) vetting the refugees to assure the safety of American Citizens, and 3) allowing entry to the USA exclusively to those who want to be here – folks who are desirous to assimilate American values AND who have zero affiliation with terrorist groups (even through the “social media”), THEN we could lose our country over the long-term.

    Keep up the great work!

  14. Ann, I am taking your advice and writing a letter to our wonderful Senator Sessions. I have a very personal story I will share. As a young college woman I was raped by a muslim man from Saudi Arabia. He was in the US on a student visa. He had been one of my best friends for 1.5 yrs and I trusted him. Near the end of my last term in grad school, things turned ugly very quickly.He raped me. He nearly suffocated me to stop my screams. And he nearly destroyed me. I thought I was going to die. To this day I suffer anxiety. The fact that our leaders (both sides) have betrayed our ppl by allowing this filth in our country makes me sick. I was ignorant and niave to the ways of Sharia Law back then, but our govt officials were not. When Trump announced his bid to run for the presidency and said he wanted a temporary ban on Muslim immigration I found hope at last. I have been working hard to awaken other ppl to the dangers of so called moderate Muslims. I beg others to write letters to Senator Sessions in appreciation for sticking up for We The People, instead of supporting lobbyist who want mass refugee immigration for the soul purpose of low wages and democratic votes. Our woman & children will not be safe when we are bombarded with refugees who believe in the laws of Sharia.

    Dear Ann,

    Thank you for your tireless and often thankless work on this VITAL issue. Two thoughts:

    1. It may be good to put the mailing address and fax info into each Email you send (I know it’s in the original blog post) just to make it easy and “take away excuses for not writing” – BTW, I will be writing a letter to Hon. Sessions today and faxing it!

    2. It may be good to begin to strongly encourage people on your list to support Trump in every way they can. I volunteer with a special group of people (Operation Swing State) and I can put you onto our list to receive “how-to” info from them and the Trump people about phoning directly into Swing States for Trump, etc. Please let me know which Email address you’d like me to put you on, if you’d like – we sent only one (maybe two) Emails per week.

    I’m not “political” or “partisan” (originally, I supported Ben Carson), BUT we must realize that if Hillary gets in, our nation will to “on the shoals” and the war against un-vetted, unchecked Muslim immigration will be lost. SO – we must deploy every resource to assure and Trump victory (he’s by far the most Biblical / Constitutional / foundational thinker despite his problems and background).

    Thanks SO MUCH for your hard work and consideration!

  17. Gee, don’t want to take that personally, but I went one further and called my senators and representatives offices before the hearing. I don’t know if they stopped in or what the result was, but it was more to let them know I was paying attention to this issue.

    Also, unrelated, the Peterson family in Twin Falls, ID (which is sending updates) still need support, (only at $51,000 of $125,000 goal to help with legal fees and expenses and relocation) so if you can spare anything, they are still not getting public resources. Please help if you can. I know these things have a way of falling off the radar. Helping the victims of refugee resettlement should be a priority, too.

    Just spent an hour drafting a letter to Sessions. Anyone else in Florida, Trump campaign is looking for poll watchers. Please help with that if you can, too.

      I am happy to hear you have pink flamingos! At one point 25 years ago some of us were making a point about property rights and our opposition to the “good taste gestapo.” We all put pink flamingos in our yards to make the point that we were free to have bad taste (don’t take offense). I still have one faded flamingo! Some people in Virginia had a flock of them decorated with Christmas lights (and it wasn’t Christmas!)… still laughing!

    Hi Ann:My letter is in the US mail.I also sent the same, by email, to Senator Sessions’ web site, and to NJ’s “representatives” web sites.  In NJ, we have Menendez (crooked and useless), Booker (he will be worse than Obama when he becomes president), and Frelinghuysen (A republican.  Has not put up a fight for us). When posting on Sessions’ site, an address must be provided.  Hopefully he and his staff will at least read the message, but you will get an email reply as shown below:

    – Senator Jeff Sessions   – Oct 1 at 11:08 AM – To –
    Message body Due to the volume of email sent to my office, we are only able to respond to residents of Alabama, but wanted to acknowledge that we did receive your email and thank you for writing.
