Heads up Poughkeepsie, New York: ‘Christian’ charity to bring you Syrian Muslims likely before January 2017

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 28, 2016

Update November 12th: Church World Service counts on fact that local communities don’t know much about refugee program/history of terrorism, here.

Update November 8th: Information meeting (Nov. 10th) moved to larger venue as criticism mounts. Federal contractor admits little information given to local elected body, here.

Update November 5th: Sitting Democrat Congressman should have known all this was coming to his district, here.

Update November 3rd: Mayor says he didn’t know anything about it, here.

Update October 30th: Issue becomes a campaign issue. Democrat Congressman supports Syrian refugees for the area, Republican candidate says, create safe zones in Middle East, here.

We have heard that the US Department of State has secretly identified 47 new resettlement office locations to add  to their 200 or so sites listed here.

Readers are asking me how can they find out if their town is targeted.  There are only two ways to know (there is NO list provided by the feds) either someone leaks the planning process, or you see an article like this one at WPDH Hudson Valley.

However, by the time they are at this stage of the planning, months of work as well as an R & P Abstract has been prepared and most likely the skids have been greased with local elected officials.

If you live in or near Poughkeepsie, and you care, you have work to do.

Here is the short news article which announces a public meeting (that will be structured in such a way to limit criticism).

By the way, it is ‘Christian’ charities like Church World Service, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service and Catholic Charities that have been changing the demographic make-up of New York State to the point that churches are being converted to mosques in the region.

Remember at the present rate we could be admitting 135,000 refugees this fiscal year with 20,000 of them being Syrian Muslims (because Congress does not have the guts to cut the funding!).

They are trying to get these offices open before Inauguration Day in case Donald Trump is elected. It will be much harder for him to slow the flow if the offices are up and running! If Hillary wins they will be on the glide path to 135,000 or more!

From WPDH:

A new resettlement office is opening up in Poughkeepsie to help Syrian refugees integrate into the Hudson Valley after arriving in the United States.

Church World Service announced in a press release that they will be opening up a new location in Poughkeepsie. The global humanitarian organization is one of nine U.S. resettlement agencies and has already been working to resettle refugees in Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse.


According to CWS, the Poughkeepsie office will offer newly-arrived refugees a case manager that will assist in finding employment and give support for basic needs like access to health services, cultural orientation and job prep.

A public information session is scheduled to educate the public on what the office will be doing and how the community can help. For those who are interested in learning more about the program, the information session will take place on November 10 at the Adriance Memorial Library from 4:30 to 7pm.

Go here for more on the meeting on November 10th, but be forewarned, this will be a very CONTROLLED meeting so if you are strongly opposed you must do homework in advance.  Note that you must RSVP.  Do it now!

Endnote: I am hoping to have more posts today (there is so much happening). So if you are one of those readers who says you are getting too many e-mails from me (actually from wordpress automatically) then simply unsubscribe. This is a blog for serious students of the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program willing to learn and take action!

  7. To all the residents of Poughkeepsie and Dutchess county wake up and start the protests on this. There is no room or help for our own citizens who are in the sores situation that the Syrian refugees and these morons in the Church want to turn this area into a refugee zone. Why not this church / organization and all it members move to Syria and offer the very same service. I want simple questions to be answered by each and every supporter of this program to have refugees in this county.
    A) Is USA a dumping ground
    B) Are you folks willing harbor terrorists and refugees
    C) Are you folks ready to support them financially and ready to adopt them LEGALLY
    D) Are you folks paying for their benefits and taking caring of them

    The truth is that most of you cannot even adopt a dog or cat from local ASPCA and you want to hoard all these people. Let their Governments and Europe or Middle East help them. Jokers like you are destroying this country. This is not an open border country and stops the illegal flow of refugees.

    “To help integrate [them] into the Hudson Valley” – Hey, what could go wrong!

    It is sort of as if Ann is warning about too many dangerous rumblings from Mt. Vesuvius, causing some residents of Pompeii to complain to her about too many emails. If necessary, unless your emails automatically self-destruct, you can always catch up by reading a few you couldn’t get to right away later over the weekend.

    Have there been any studies done as to the effect on states with large “refugee” populations (say maybe MN), and how that has affected the cost of ObamaCare, insurers dropping out of ObamaCare, or the cost of housing? Before vs after? Is it driving them up for others to non-affordable?


    • Ann Corcoran said

      Not that I know of, but the first thing I thought of when I heard Minnesota was one of the states to see the highest increase in cost with obamacare was that it is probably due to the huge number of Somalis tapping in to the system. Unfortunately we don’t have the money and people (or colleges with an interest) to do studies like that. The Left does studies all the time to make their political points…wish we had some studies on our side!

      • Please go to @missyblueblue and see my pinned tweet…We are dying in MN…our resources are being drained along with Soc Sec WE paid into and ALL of America will see it falter by 2030. No ‘studies’…we are living the ‘reality’. Our govt officials aren’t listening in this state. We have muslim dem rep Keith Ellison with over 7,000 ‘bros’ in his district to assure he is re-elected. UGH


  12. Sending these Muslims to South Dakota may be the stupidest idea they’ve ever had. Rape one girl and find out what the Three S’s are. Shoot, Shovel and Shut Up.

    Thanks for providing more evidence that the stage four commie / islamic cancer consuming USA Federal Government have also metastasized inside America’s Christian religion institutions.

    “The church was not created to teach Christian sugar babies how to enjoy recreation on a playground, but to teach Christian soldiers how to defeat islam on a battlefield.”

  15. MAN UP America.
    They are targeting White Christian communities. This IS a war on Christianity.
    Stop all donations to any church. The Lutheran, Catholic, and Jewish “Social Services” are being given YOUR tax dollars to import these savages. Check out their web pages, they BRAG about what they are doing. Cut off ALL “churches” and those not involved will pressure those who ARE —- Dry up the MONEY of those JUDAS ISCARIOTS that are betraying us.
    That’s why I say just cut off ALL of them …. they DO understand EMPTY collection plates and “word” will get around very quickly IF People will STAND UP.
