Australian press thinks its unlikely US will take rejected ‘refugees’ off their hands

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 23, 2016

Mr Trump! Forget Syrians for a minute! Are we going to suspend resettlement of all ‘high-risk aliens?’

Here is a story from Sky News Australia which links Trump advisor Kris Kobach’s proposals to Trump last weekend in NJ as evidence that the deal might well be dead on arrival.  See my earlier post this morning about a letter from two powerful members of Congress who want the fishy Australia deal stopped now!


Trump meets with Kris Kobach. Leftwing media has been having fun with the enlargement of the memo in Kobach’s hand.


Sky News titters about photo that reveals some of Kobach’s suggestions to the Trump team on immigration:

An apparent bungle by US president-elect Donald Trump’s hardline immigration adviser shows just how difficult Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s US refugee re-settlement plan will likely be to pull off.

Kris Kobach, tipped to head the US Department of Homeland Security in the Trump administration, was clutching documents as he stood with a smiling and waving Mr Trump on Sunday in view of the media.

A photo taken by Associated Press, when zoomed in, shows the top page of the document is headlined ‘Department of Homeland Security. Kobach Strategic Plan for First 365 Days’.

It lists aggressive proposals aimed at ‘high-risk aliens.’

‘Reduce intake of Syrian refugees to zero, using authority under the 1980 Refugee Act,’ Mr Kobach’s plan states.

The plan also calls for ‘extreme vetting questions for high-risk aliens: question them regarding support for Sharia Law, jihad, equality of men and women, the United States Constitution’.

Mr Kobach was one of many potential Trump administration hires who met with the president-elect at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey on the weekend.

More here at Sky News.

Readers, I am starting to get nervous about whether Trump’s closest advisors on immigration fully understand the US Refugee Admissions Program.

In my previous post I said that if Trump picks Romney in combination with Nikki Haley at the UN (where the UN has plans for who comes to your towns!), we shouldn’t expect any major shakeup of the RAP.

Let’s talk about HIGH-RISK ALIENS!

There has been enormous national attention on the fact that FBI Director Comey testified to Congress that Syrians cannot be vetted because they come from a failed state where records are not obtainable. And, it is understandable that the focus has been on the Syrians, but…..

….if you are a longtime reader of RRW you know this is also true for the vast majority of Somalis (tens of thousands) we have admitted over the last two-three decades.  In fact, in 2008 the State Department (DOS) cut off family reunification for Somalis because they discovered wide spread fraud—-Somalis lied about their family connections!  Family reunification was closed for years (all documented here at RRW). See the most recent news on Somalis who thumbed their noses at your generosity.

The DOS and DHS say they can vet the Iraqis.  But, they screwed up big time a few years ago and Iraqi refugee Al-Qaeda supporters were arrested and convicted on terror charges in Kentucky.  One of them actually had fingerprints on an IED shard in US government hands and no one ever made the connection. That IED killed American service men. These two had lied on their refugee application.

And, how are we possibly screening the Rohingya Muslims who have fled Burma, many on boats that ended up in Malaysia and Indonesia. We are taking thousands of them!  They don’t have ‘papers’ from the government of Burma (a Buddhist government that is all too happy to get rid of them)!

Other countries that produce unvettable (new word!) Muslims are Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Sudan and Uzbekistan. Just those few countries mentioned above account for probably half of the flow to the US right now!

So, Mr. Trump and Mr. Kobach! Stop focusing on only Syrians! The problem is much much bigger!

  2. Ann, first thank you for the “thankless” job you are doing. I admire you greatly, and put you on a pedestal with Pamela Geller and Brigette Gabrielle.
    Since you mentioned Dave Piepkorn, city councilman, Fargo, ND, in a recent post, I thought I would mention this: Piepkorn is now under continuing attack from the many libs of Fargo (Good God!) So much so that I sent a letter of support for him, which also got an attack. FINE!
    The reason I’m writing, there was…well, here’s the headline in The Forum: “Refugee resettlement discussion Nov 20th.”
    That was at the Fargo Faith United Methodist Church, 909 19th AVE North. Thommasson spoke and answered questions. I “love” it how they include churches in their name. “Lutheran Social Services,” as if they help local lutherans–a Joke!!!!
    I know, that is already past. I didn’t go because I have no patience for those people, but I’m still planning to visit the center and ask for FY2017.
    BTW, in my letter I mentioned your website. Was surprised they printed it, so I hope you will hear from the sensible people of Fargo. I do think there are a few.
    Again, Thank you for all you do,

      I was actually in Fargo this summer on my 13 city tour of middle America’s refugee hotspots and met with some activists there concerned with the program and so I do pay attention to the news from there. If you wanted to put some pressure on someone in your state who could really rein-in the program it is your US Senator Hoeven who sits on the all-important Appropriations Committee. All of you should be telling him to cut the funding for the program and help stop it in ND and everywhere else!

  3. People who think the Quran is Holy and that Allah is God along with thinking Jesus is a great prophet rather than God with Blood in him for a short time will be a high risk person. They will want Sharia no matter what they say. Muslims lie in three ways.

    Yes, Kris Kobach, (new DHS (?)) ask the questions, the “Hard” questions, but remember this:
    The muslim people have permission direct from the koran to LIE to the infidel (TAQUIYYA) anything to push the ultimate goal of islam which is a worldwide caliphate and sharia law for everyone.

    Hi Ann,

    Have you got any information about Texas and any refugee programs there?

    I noticed radio here has been reporting on how to deal with criminals and here in Australia the criminals are being given into by judges, so its creating lots of home invasions and car jackings by Sudanese immigrants.

    I really need to start up my own austarlian blog.

    I am embarrassed by our PM Turnbull and hoping he will stop mucking things up here….he only got in through stabbing Tony Abbott in the back. We need someone like Pauline Hanson to get in.

    Maybe Trump is taking some refugees as a goodwill thing but I reckon he has something up his sleeve….I’m hoping he will turn around Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and show how dangerous the refugees are……something will happen to wake up Mr Turnbull I’m praying!

    keep up the good work

      I have huge amounts of stuff on Texas…type ‘Texas’into the search window and reading the archive will give you a good education. Yes, by all means, write a blog in Australia. We may only have fully free speech for a while!


  6. the problem is getting bigger, and we need to keep reminding Trump to keep his promises. If the same statistics expert who predicted Trump’s victory is correct, Trump will be impeached sometime during his presidency. If he is correct, we need to get rid of as many of these parasites as possible while we can.

      Why? So was Bill Clinton. He didn’t step down and it didn’t stop a single one of his policies. Why should Trump be any different?
