Waiting! Will Trump lower refugee ceiling further?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 13, 2017

If so, how low will he go!

Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily talked to several experts here:

If President Donald Trump wants to curtail migration into the U.S. from some of the world’s most dangerous hotspots of jihadism, he has options that would effectively navigate an end-run around the courts.

“We will keep our country safe. That’s what I’m here for… I will give it the best security, so it will happen very rapidly,” Trump said Friday.

His top policy aide, Stephen Miller, said essentially the same thing in appearing on all the major Sunday morning news shows.

One of the options is to simply lower the ceiling on refugee resettlement for fiscal 2017, which began four months ago on Oct. 1.

Trump has already partially exercised this option in his first executive order when he lowered the annual ceiling from 110,000 refugees set by Obama to 50,000. Interestingly, this was the one part of his executive order that was not struck down by the lawsuits filed in Washington state and Minnesota.

[….]

By cutting the ceiling to 35,000, Trump would effectively end refugee resettlement for the rest of the fiscal year extending over the next seven and a half months. That would allow his administration to decide on a better vetting system and determine how high to set the ceiling for fiscal 2018. [And, I would argue that such a moratorium would give Congress the impetus to begin to reform the program! First step would be to remove “church” contractors from federal payroll—ed]

See what the experts say.  I am quoted too!

Don’t forget, even though there is a vocal minority, the majority of your fellow citizens think protecting America is the first priority, here.

Here is where the 2,305 refugees have been placed since the Executive Order was signed (up to this morning). I see we are still at the 34,430 level for the fiscal year, so there is still time to cap at 35,000! From Wrapsnet.

None were placed in Alaska and Hawaii since the EO on January 27th.

Comment worth noting: African gangs running amok in Australia

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 13, 2017

Editor: From time to time we post comments we want to feature fearing you might miss them where they were posted. This is from a regular reader from Australia responding to a comment by ‘Lower Tones’ at this post.

You might also want to see my previous post this morning on the “dumb” Australian deal, here.

Fatherjon (emphasis is mine):

Lower Tones: You got it in one – cheap, compliant labour! Forget all the heart-wrenching, wrist-wringing emotive stuff about looking after our fellows in need, ‘it’s all about the economy, stupid’. That certainly seems to be the case in America. However we’re finding in Australia that most of our Middle Eastern and African migrant-refugees are still unemployed 5 years after arrival!

Australia too is being roiled by Leftist protesters demanding Middle Eastern and African refugees be admitted. http://nation.com.pk/international/04-Feb-2017/trump-s-refugee-order-triggers-protests-across-australia

The less disingenuous ones admit that they didn’t come here to work, they expected that our much vaunted welfare system, based on the ‘cradle to grave’ theory, would give them a living wage and free housing, education and health for the rest of their lives. Nobody mentioned work back in the village!

Consequently when their teenager offspring find that the welfare system is actually not as salubrious as they expected, and that they only receive modest unemployment benefits, cheap housing in fairly run down suburbs and education in the least desirable schools, they turn to drugs and crime.

Melbourne is currently in a crime wave with African gangs of thugs running amok, robbing, raping and pillaging. The state government tries to pretend that it’s not happening, but few voters will agree as the Labor govt. will find out at the next election.

And, just yesterday we have corroboration of that as  Sudanese youth gangs reportedly robbed and beat up Australian teens in a Melbourne suburb—Youth stampede at Caroline Springs, here. (Hat tip: Diana).

You can see why Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is between a rock and a hard place on that Australian refugee deal with the US.  Most voters in Australia don’t want more phony ‘refugees’ permitted on the mainland, while the usual Leftist ‘humanitarian’ agitators are pressing for the government to close offshore detention centers and bring those who tried to illegally reach Australia by boat to Australian towns and cities.

The globalists won’t admit it, but this drive for one (borderless) world (where labor flows freely!) is what has patriotic citizens everywhere wanting to throw the bums out!

Senator Grassley to White House: Declassify Australian refugee deal!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 13, 2017

tillerson-and-trumpYes! Obama isn’t here anymore and we expect greater transparency from the Trump State Department on refugees than we have seen in the last 8 years!

New readers, go here and follow links to many previous posts on the “dumb” deal.

From Newsmax (hat tip: Heymister24):

Sen. Chuck Grassley on Twitter Sunday said he wanted an answer from the White House on why a deal the U.S. made with Australia to accept as many as 1,000 refugees hasn’t been declassified, the Hill reports.

Grassley earlier this month sent a letter to new Secretary of State Rex Tillerson asking for a response.

“As I said before, the American people have a right to be fully aware of the actions of their government regarding foreign nationals who may be admitted to the United States,” the Republican senator wrote in the letter.

The Obama administration agreed in November to accept the refugees Australia has been holding in detention centers on Nauru and Papua New Guinea’s Manus Island, most of whom are from Iraq and Iran, as a way to help its ally.

Senator Grassley and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (Judiciary Committee chairmen in the Senate and House) initially identified the countries (see here) from which the migrants came seeking asylum in Australia, but Australia does not want them!
