Refugee Resettlement Watch

Nebraska received (per capita) more refugees last year than any other state

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 8, 2016

Here is a story from the Omaha World-Herald which used those Pew numbers we reported yesterday, as the hook for this story about how “welcoming” Nebraska is for refugees.

Nebraska is one of the states I visited over the summer, and I am here to report that even if the Republican governor is thrilled about welcoming refugees, the citizens whose towns are being impacted by refugee labor at meat and chicken processing plants, aren’t too thrilled.

Downtown Nickerson, Nebraska where citizens objected to plans to locate a chicken processing plant in the area. One reason they said NO! is that they did not want an influx of Somali refugee workers.

 

No mention in this heartwarming report about Nickerson, Nebraska that actually fought and kept out a new chicken plant here last May.

Cut the humanitarian guilt-trip mumbo-jumbo and be truthful!

I live for the day when resettlement contractors like Lutheran Family Services here are completely out in the open about the work they do providing laborers for BIG MEAT and BIG POULTRY and also tell the public that their salaries and offices are paid for by the US taxpayer (this is not a Christian charity! this is not about passing the collection plate on Sunday morning!).*** Then we can have the debate about why it is in the interests of the American taxpayer to supply foreign labor to giant corporations some of which are not even US-owned!

From the Omaha World-Herald:

Todd Reckling of Lutheran Family Services at least hints here that LFS works with BIG MEAT which wants refugee workers.

LINCOLN — Nebraska led the nation in resettling the most refugees per capita during the last year, according to newly released federal government data.

The state welcomed 1,441 refugees, or 76 per 100,000 Nebraskans, between October 2015 and September 2016, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of data from the U.S. State Department’s Refugee Processing Center and the U.S. Census Bureau.

Nebraska is a strong draw for refugees because of its strong economy with accessibility to jobs in hospitality and meatpacking, said Todd Reckling, a vice president of Lutheran Family Services, the state’s largest of three placement agencies. About 90 percent of refugees come to the state to reunite with family already living in Nebraska, he said.

“I’d say Nebraska has a reputation for being a welcoming state,” he said, “a place to provide safety and hope for the families that are coming together.”

You will notice at the end of the story that some who are not thrilled about the security concerns with refugees are hanging their hat on Donald Trump to take care of that problem.

For any of you in states (especially with Republican governors who are squishy on the refugee program) do some research on who is donating to their campaigns.

***Lutheran Family Services in Omaha is a subcontractor of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service headquartered in Baltimore which is 95% funded by taxpayers, go here.

  2. THIS IS WHY…

    2010 Census Reapportionment: As has been the case since 1964, Nebraska will remain at 5 electoral votes through the 2020 presidential election.

    Nebraska entered the Union in March 1867, 13 years after it became a territory under the Kansas-Nebraska Act, and the first state admitted after the end of the Civil War. The state is strongly Republican in presidential elections – it last voted Democratic in 1964. However, it is one of only two states (Maine being the other) to not use the all-or-nothing approach to awarding electoral votes. The winner of the popular vote gets two electoral votes, while one is assigned to the winner of each of the state’s three congressional districts. This approach was established beginning with the 1992 election. In 2008, while John McCain easily won the state by 15%, Barack Obama won the 2nd Congressional District (Omaha area) by a little over 3,000 votes (1.2%) to win that District’s electoral vote. That split did not recur in 2012 as Mitt Romney won the state over Obama by 22%, with a 7% margin in the 2nd Congressional District. Nebraska’s primarily rural population has not grown as quickly as other parts of the country, leading to declining electoral influence – from a peak of eight electoral votes before the Great Depression to its current total of five.

    Big meat and chicken processing want the Somali “refugees.”
    So it needs repeating that many muslims have questionable sanitary habits.
    I’m beginning to wonder, just how much of my food is being handled by “refugees?”

  7. This is also just another way to help turn a Red State into a Blue State. Refugees, illegals, and liberals invading the vast middle of America will in about 1 more generation turn these red heartland states blue.
