Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly calls for one year moratorium on refugee resettlement

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 6, 2016

I happened to catch his talking points memo last night.

However, he didn’t have the story exactly accurate on Australia.  He praised that country for its tough stance on illegal migrants as if it’s always been that way. But for those interested in digging in to the facts there, see our category on Australia (184 posts going back 8 years) and see that their hardline stance is relatively recent and that the country foolishly admitted, for years, large numbers of Muslim migrants that are now pretty aggressive.

O’Reilly also mentioned the strange deal that the Obama Administration is advancing where we would take off Australia’s hands hundreds (at least) of Australia’s rejected asylum seekers (our coverage here) presently housed in off-shore detention facilities.

However, here is the part we liked best in O’Reilly’s statement.  Thanks to Media Matters for tracking this type of story more closely than some on our side do.

You can see 3 + minutes of the statement by O’Reilly by clicking here.  (I see they left out the Australia portion.) You may not like some of O’Reilly’s prescriptions for dealing with our illegal aliens living in the US.

    Sadly, like almost all who criticize mass third world illegal migration, Trump praises mass third world legal migration.

  2. If resettlement is suspended for a year, will the government reduce or cut off the overseas part of the pipeline as well?

    Overseas the U.S. State Department spends tens of millions of dollars on the refugee program–and that’s a sunk cost, spent before a single refugee arrives in the States. It starts as part of UNHCR’s funding, which is huge. They also fund Junior Professional Officer (JPO) staff as “Resettlement Officers”. They also fund ICMC’s “secondment scheme” for additional referrals. And then the big costs come in with the Resettlement Support Centers. The biggest ones employ hundreds of people doing interviews, paperwork and cultural orientation. Somewhere in there are medical and airport staff too. And all that is in addition to the money spent on resettling the refugees after they arrive.

    Will those overseas expenses go down if the program is reduced or suspended?

      I have no idea. I assume if the spending is reduced there will necessarily have to be a reduction for the overseas part of it. However, if Congress funds the slush fund we wrote about over the last few days, perhaps there will be people getting paychecks but with nothing to do (if Trump slows or stops the flow). I really don’t know the answer.

    Excellent video from Bill O’reilly. Clicking on the photo doesn’t bring it up. Look for “here.”
