Students at William and Mary pushing for refugee resettlement for Williamsburg, VA

Update November 29th:  See tongue in cheek comment with a suggestion for Sam, below!

The biggest threats to the social order and economic viability of your community may be the little darlings at your local college or university (many of whom will graduate and go somewhere else in four short years).


Readers in Virginia need to nip this in the bud. 

Students are pushing for a city resolution welcoming the federal refugee contractors in to set up shop in the historic city. (Nevermind that there is little low cost housing because the students likely gobble it all up!).

Why is it so cool for the kids these days to want to bring in Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees while not caring about the local American poor, disabled or struggling veterans?

From the Virginia Gazette:

William and Mary students want to make sure refugees know they are welcome in Williamsburg if and when the state sees fit. First step: getting the city council to pass a resolution to that effect.

In light of severe political unrest and danger in Syria, more than 10,000 refugees have entered the United States. They’ve settled in cities and towns across the country.

“The resolution would say that the city of Williamsburg would be willing to accept refugees were they to come,” senior student Andrew Vollavanh said.

He and other students decided to take the city resolution route after speaking with city staff. “We were trying to proceed in a legislative fashion,” Vollavanh said. “The mayor told us that probably wasn’t the best way to do it.”

Sam Steed is the Virginia legislative coordinator at Amnesty International and a student at the college.

Be sure to check out the information on Sam (photo caption at Virginia Gazette)!  He is from Massachusetts and wants a  job with Amnesty International when he graduates!

Looks like this is a national campaign aimed at college towns.

He said that resolutions similar to the one that they are trying to pass in Williamsburg have already passed in other cities, including Durham, North Carolina, New Paltz, New York, and Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Williamsburg does not share all of the traits of those cities, but the students still want to push a resolution through. The federal government lets trusted non-governmental organizations [LOL! “trusted”!—ed] figure out where refugees can settle upon entering the U.S. They weigh characteristics like whether there is an existing immigrant community and housing availability.

Continue reading as they repeat the refugee industry’s talking points that seem to be springing up everywhere.  These are the three main talking points we have addressed in the past:

Omar al Harden an Iraqi refugee plead guilty in Houston recently. He planned to bomb two area malls for ISIS.

~Only women and children! So we are expected to believe that these Middle Eastern and African women are going to live without their men for the next couple of decades. There is this thing called “family reunification.”

~Thoroughly vetted! But, no one tells the students that the Director of the FBI has testified to Congress that the Syrians can’t be vetted because there is no documentation on them from the failed state of Syria. In spite of that, Obama shortened ‘screening’ for Syrians from 18-24 months down to 3 months.

~No terrorist arrests in the refugee population in the US! Amazing to me that they tell this bald-faced lie when there is plenty of documentation of Islamic terrorist arrests and convictions (caught before they acted!) in the US refugee population.

I told readers about a few cases off the top of my head here when Church World Service was spinning in Poughkeepsie. One of these days I guess I will have to go back through my refugee crimes category and pull out all the Islamic terror/crime stories from the last 9 years involving refugees.

And, if you live nearby don’t miss this:

Students at the campus chapter of Amnesty International will hold a forum on Nov. 29 where experts will talk about some of the nuances involved in accepting refugees.

See more of the story at the Virginia Gazette.

And, one final thought.  Since Williamsburg is an independent city with as they admit little housing for poor people, the kids would presumably have to sell this idea on surrounding counties.

Editor (update): Here is a fun comment from a reader making a suggestion for Sam (sent to my personal email):

Sam Steed from Massachusetts, a student at William and Mary, wants to turn Williamsburg into a welcoming city for refugees, does he? Well, I’d say he doesn’t go far enough.

So, Sam, here’s what I propose you do to gain credibility — Before you ask the city of Williamsburg to welcome refugees, you and fellow do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do students must step forward and offer to adopt individual refugees and their families, prepare them for assimilation into America, and then take them home to Mom and Dad for a lesson in cultural diversity. The refugees can be a real-life report card, like show and tell: this is what your tuition bought. Deal with it, Mom and Dad, or else you’re a racist and a bigot and a xenophobe.

What do you say, Sam? Amnesty International might hire you early!

    (withhold Name please!)
    28 November 2016

    James City County Board of Supervisors
    City of Williamsburg
    Commonwealth Representative Brenda Pogge

    Dear Board, Members and Representative Pogge,

    To my great horror, I read an article in the Virginia Gazette and also on line from “Refugee Resettlement Watch” by Mrs Ann Corcoran, about students of William and Mary, a Sam Steel, and senior student Andre Vollabanh, PUSHING their refugee resettlement agenda onto the people of Williamsburg and James City County.

    As a resident of James City County, I vehemently object to ANY Refugee Resettlement Program taking place with OUR TAX money in our county. I have written Senator Mark Warner and our Congressman Rob Wittman to refuse to allow OUR TAX MONEY from the state, and our FEDERAL tax money to be given in the form of GRANTS to these pseudo-charities who pay themselves huge salaries on 95% federal tax money funding and draw funds per head for each so-called refugee. Now these idiot students are arrogantly pushing their OWN agenda onto us local taxpayers and I do NOT want a majority muslim refugee resettlement sucking up our limited local charity and tax resources to PAY for these people the rest of their lives.

    I am adamantly opposed to any muslim resettlement on our tax money. You only have to read the koran (see a few pages enclosed for an example), and then look to a few internet resources to know the extent of muslim hostility to Christians, atheists, gay, and Jewish populations. It is known that –sure muslims kill each other, Sunni versus Shi’ite – and why do we want WARRING factions of muslims within our communities? Muslims – and there are 57 muslim countries to house these folks rather than we, the “Great Satan” of the United States – hate our life styles.

    It is well documented in Islamic literature, doctrine and biography that Muhammed himself hated: dogs, art, music, singing, pork, alcohol, unveiled women, Jews, Christians, non-believers, atheists, hypocrites, apostates, gay folks, and people who mocked him. (the Koran, Sahih el Buhkari, Sahih el Muslim, the Reliance of the Traveller). He called for the slaying of such people, of whom we are the majority. Unfortunatley, these old hatreds follow these people to the United States, as we have seen from the brutality of bombings, beheadings, shootings, stabbings, rapes of unveiled women and girls, etc. visited upon the American populace since and before September 11th 2001. What Muhammed hated and called for slaying – his followers will do – and we see this each evening on the news. It is Our Blood on YOUR HANDS, should these misguided out of town out of control non-voting, non-resident students be listened to and their WISHES granted. We do NOT owe the hostile Islamic world our small community, especially when the Islamic world means masses of muslims who will come to devour our limited charitable resources at the expense of our own American people, our homeless, our old people, our veterans and our own children, who are at particular risk by muslim men who follow the Muhammed example of child rape and child marriages.

    We have to have our eyes closed to agree with this totally misguided college student, who will turn and LEAVE us with this horrific mess and expense that will be with us for a lifetime. I have nothing but contempt for his braggadocio efforts to bring unwanted havoc on our lovely community.

    AND remember – and this is critical – islam is NOT a race, it is a pseudo-religion clothed in a SOCIAL SYSTEM OF GREAT BARBARITY. Reading Koran suri 4:34 alone should convince your, “beat the disobedient wife” or “take now Jews or Christians (disbelievers) as friends as they are only friends of each other”.

    For the latest body and attack count visit: for the death toll.
    See: by Dr. Bill Warner for information about sharia law, hatred of women and wife beating, hatred of Jews and Christians — and the atheists don’t escape either.
    See: http://www.acts17apologetics for videos by Dr. David Wood on islam, the koran, Muhammed and the effect on the rest of us.
    See: by Ms Ann Corcoran for her blog on the latest in lies by organizations to deceive us about the real costs of this program.

    For my background, I am a retired federal auditor – worked for Army, Navy, Justice Department, and Transportation Department. Post retirement, I write WWII books.

    The pseudo-charities operate in secrecy to get their refugees put on the local communities who are for the most part totally unaware of how many would come, and the cost of such. President Jimmy Carter signed in this program, which is way way long overdue for a Governmental Auditing Office extensive review. This I have written to Senator Warner and Congressman Wittman. I’ve totally written off Jihad Senator Kaine, as I got his letter which is basically open borders and open our pocketbooks… let our money flow.

    I hope you all will give great thought and consideration to this misguided student and his feeble attempt to change our community and our treasury.

    …. the 9/11 PANTHER


  2. I mailed a detailed complaint letter to the City Council of Williamsburg, the James City County Board of Supervisors, the State Rep for our area, Brenda Pogge, THEN a detailed response to W. Wright the journalist at the VIRGINIA GAZETTE then an email long letter to “THE LAST WORD” whose email is : or phone: 757-345-2300 and fAX:who wrote the article. PHONE: 757-220-1766 Ill try to see if I can copy it here.


  3. In Missoula MT it’s no different. The radical whatever come in at the most vulnerable spots: cities having universities. Centers of higher indoctrination centers. Remember the New Party? Jesse Jackson came to Missoula (where the UM is located) and low and behold so did the New Party. We in Missoula started to call out the New Party for what is was. The New Communist Party! And they went underground. BTW Obama was part of the New Party. Tell me, what’s the difference between how the communists use the useful idiots and how the Muslims do?

    1. Hi Hannah,
      I’m also sending the articles to these folks. I also turned at TERRORIST TIP LINE TO THE RICHMOND FBI about the fact that MUSLIM MEN ONLY are meeting every FRIDAY at the Williamsburg DOWNTOWN LIBRARY – NO WOMEN – it is a CELL operating independently from the mosque off Route 5. I also left a TERRORIST TIP on the local James City County Sheriff’s Office, and wrote State Rep Pogge!

    1. I’m immediately WRITING A LETTER TO THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS FOR JAMES CITY COUNTY AND CITY OF WILLIAMSBURG! I’m enclosing many quotes from the Koran about wife beating, slaying the dis-believers (that would be US!!) and sending pamphlets from Dr. Bill Warner’s website and Dr. David Wood’s ACTS 17 APOLOGETICS.

      1. Then this may be of some help to you:

        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.

            I can’t be the only dissident name the reporter sees! I read the Koran, the Reliance of the traveller and many books by ex-Muslim women.


  5. Reblogged this on Booksbyjameswnelson and commented:
    So true about the liberal “little darlings” in your local colleges. They will leave in four years, just like the scammers who bring in these “refugees” will dump them on the welcoming community and then wash their hands and are never seen again until they have more “refugees” to dump.
    About like celebs whining and then hiding inside their gated communities or fenced properties, never having to see the “refugees” again.

  6. It is hard to believe that higher education has so thourghly indoctrinated they can no longer think critically. What would Sharia law bring to this country, where does the money come from to support these immigration policies? Our current college level students now being subsidized by government or parents think it’s their time to have their mindless little rebellion. I’m sure most don’t realize this country makes up about .04 percent of the world population how many will try to come here? if they are successful there will be no America and they have no idea what their life will be like.

    1. If any of you ever get into a debate with one of the open borders kids, ask them what their level of immigration is (do they have one) or are they proposing that we fling open our borders completely. If they say completely they are working toward our overthrow… but if they hesitate and realize if we did that, that literally the whole third world would be heading our way. Then just point out that the difference between us is simply a matter of numbers. Or, as I think Robert Spencer said, it is just we differ on the racist scale (LOL!). They are racists too, just we are a bit more than they are!

WRITE or EMAIL or PHONE THE JAMES CITY COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS and the City of Williamsburg about this idiot who doesn’t even LIVE HERE, but wants bragging rights to his little liberal friends! THIS MUST BE STOPPED AND STOPPED NOW! Also write your state representative – I think ours is LINDA POGGE from Richmond. SHE SENT OUT A SURVEY last year asking if “Our State resources should NOT be spent on refugees?” HELL NO!!
