Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio planning for large refugee influx this year; ID cards for illegals

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 14, 2017

They believe that Obama’s last proposal, sent to Congress in September 2016, will continue to be operative and that his huge ‘recommendation’ for 110,000 refugees to be admitted this year will be honored by the incoming Trump administration.

Curious to see the last time we admitted more than the astronomical number of 110,000 refugees in one year, I went back to the Office of Refugee Resettlement annual reports and found that we must go back to 1995 (Bill Clinton) to find a year when we brought that many refugees.  It was a year that we admitted over 30,000 Cubans, 30,000 Russians and 30,000 Vietnamese.

Just a few days ago I posted a widely read post about this week as National Migration Week at the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and how much of your money is going to the USCCB.

The USCCB’s migration fund is 97% funded by you! Their ‘work’ is not funded by Catholic parishioners giving their own private money!

Here is a report from Cincinnati, Ohio about one Migration week, ‘welcoming the stranger,’ event. This is how the progressives do it, they declare a special day or week, hold a public relations event and the press shows up to write glowingly.  They are masters at media manipulation (propaganda)! (Emphasis below is mine):

Despite uncertainty and concerns about policies of the incoming Trump administration, programs and agencies helping immigrants and refugees in Greater Cincinnati anticipate more growth in 2017.

The Refugee Resettlement Program of Catholic Charities Southwestern Ohio, which helped bring in 330 refugees in 2016, will help 450 this year, said Alisa Berry, the agency’s chief operating officer who oversees the program. It resettled 260 refugees in 2015.

Wishful thinking on Alisa Berry’s part—Obama’s 110,000 refugee plan for FY17 will continue?

“The federal government keeps asking us to help more people,” Berry said. “Demand for services increases every year.”

She was one of five panelists to participate Thursday in an interfaith immigration insights event at Hebrew Union College. About 150 people attended to listen to updates on programs and perspective on a contentious national issue.

The opposition to legal immigration and assistance for undocumented immigrants and refugees helped Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race.

The Thursday event was part of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ National Migration Week and in conjunction with Pope Francis’ World Migrant and Refugee Day, which will be Tuesday.

The United States will accept 110,000 refugees in 2017, a number established by President Barack Obama. Trump has the authority to change the number for 2018. [Trump can change the number in 2017, on day one, will he?—ed]

Refugees arriving in Greater Cincinnati through Catholic Charities are coming from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan, Bhutan, Syria, Iraq and Myanmar.

Check out what else they are doing through CLINIC (the Catholic Legal Immigration Network), a non-profit organization that depends on millions of your tax dollars too!  They are giving ID cards out to those who have no legal identity in the US.  Who is paying for this? You?

Allison Herre, with CLINIC, is promoting ID cards for those in the country illegally.

In January 2015, immigration attorney Allison Herre started as the local Catholic Charities’ agency director of Legal Immigration Services.

The event also provided an update on the MARCC ID card, issued by the Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition of Cincinnati and manufactured and distributed by Catholic Charities. It is recognized as legal identification by all city departments, including the police.

[….]

Card supporters say the card will improve public safety by providing people who otherwise do not have an ID card – people returning from prison, the homeless, immigrants, especially those living here without legal documentation.

Herre said her agency continues to advise clients to apply for the MARCC card and file for extensions of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Known as DACA, it was created by an Obama executive order in 2012 to provide status to children brought illegally into the country and who have grown up in the United States. It allows them to apply for driver’s licenses and work permits.

If all of these Catholic organizations (USCCB, Catholic Charities and CLINIC) operated on truly private charitable giving, then we would have nothing to say about their activities, but it is the fact that they use our money (never report that fact to the public), so they can brag about their Christian charity, that is so offensive to me.

    Ann, I also was thinking along the lines of near term. I was thinking that if the USCCB knew the vetting process was light and geared to getting the “refugee” into the Country. If they had such knowledge and a terrorist act took place that would sink them. Also in the case of know certain “Refufees” had a history of sexual predators that would make them both criminally & Civilly compromised unless the US Government has given them some type of legal shield which also might be illegal

      I don’t know if they have any legal shield, but the whole idea is worth exploring—-holding refugee agencies legally responsible when their “clients” break the law.

    I have more questions then answers. How does the UN, US government and USCCB define “Syrian Refugee”? Are they one and =the same? Do they allow for Nationality other than Syrian but coming into the country under “Syrian Refugee Program”? How is it that the American public paying the bill when its actually a UN Program that has been accepted by B.Obama but has funding been approved by the House? Does funding need to be approved each Fiscal Year October 2017? Does the USCCB have a waiver from all Civil litigation if their charges commit terrorism or other crimes. How can this non-governmental agency issue an ID that will carry the same authority of a government ID?

      Someone just yesterday suggested that these agencies might be liable for criminal acts of their charges. Of course they can’t be responsible years down the road, but we were talking about the Somali convicted sexual predator in Aberdeen, SD where he supposedly had only been in the country for a week.
