Breitbart: Federally-funded refugee resettlement contractor, HIAS, organized NY rally against Trump

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 14, 2017

And, a featured speaker was Congressman Keith Ellison, Congress’ first Muslim representative.

For longtime readers of RRW, this news is not new—that federally funded resettlement contractors organize political rallies and lobby for causes which coincidentally help their bottomlines!

We reported often during the Gang of Eight amnesty fight that HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) was regularly on the Hill pushing for legalization of illegal aliens.  In the bill HIAS and the other refugee contractors would gain more “clients”—and more funding!—to help the newly amnestied get their government services if it had become law.

Ellison at HIAS rally: Trump Admin. is like the Third Reich. I’m in the minority I believe, but I am actually rooting for Ellison to be picked DNC chair because the Democrat Party will then continue to lose middle America.

There is a lot Donald Trump could do to rein in those working against him (without all the fanfare!) and one thing is to be sure that any contractors doing political organizing can prove there is a firewall between their federal funding and overt political organizing against the hand that feeds them (you)!

See our accounting of the HIAS budget here.  If Trump is successful, maybe some of their highly paid staffers will have to take a pay cut!

Here is Aaron Klein at Breitbart.  I am delighted to see that bigger media outlets are researching how much of your money is going to organizations working against your interests! (We are waiting! Where are you Washington Post? New York Times?)

TEL AVIV – A Jewish group that organized a “Jewish Rally for Refugees” in New York on Sunday was massively funded by the federal government under the Obama administration to resettle refugees.

In attendance at the rally was Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), who used the platform to compare the Trump administration to the Third Reich.

[….]

The New York rally was organized by the nonprofit HIAS, which describes itself as standing “for a world in which refugees find welcome, safety, and freedom.”

Unmentioned in much of the news media coverage about the rally is that HIAS has taken in large sums of federal grants to help resettle refugees.

[….]

The Jerusalem Post described the organization as a “global Jewish nonprofit organization that works to protect refugees.”

Local Fox 5 simply labeled HIAS as “the global Jewish nonprofit.”

HIAS is more than that, as this reporter previously documented.

HIAS specializes in refugee resettlement and in 2015 received 65.3 percent of its annual $25 million budget from government grants.

Annual grants include funds from the State Department and the Office of Refugee Resettlement in the Department of Health and Human Services. Another major donor is the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

In 2015, the State Department provided $17,663,704 and the Department of Health and Human Services gave another $2,765,195.

So why did they drop the word “Hebrew?” 

(No matter what their official line is, I’ll bet a buck that many Muslim refugees refused to be resettled by a “Hebrew” organization!)

Klein continues…

HIAS was an acronym that previously stood for the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society and it originally worked to resettle Jewish emigrants from Russia. It dropped the full title and only goes by the acronym now. Mark Hetfield, HIAS president and CEO,told the Washington Jewish Week in December 2014 the word “Hebrew” was exclusionary and outdated, comparing it with the use of the word “colored” to refer to African Americans.

  1. This organization cannot possibly be pro-Israel if their featured speaker was Ellison, one of the most partisan Jew-haters among a political party full of Jew-haters.

    Another way the POTUS could slow down this massive influx of migrants from countries known to harbor terrorist is to close the federal purse they have been dipping into. I have look at these resettlement agencies as recruiters of possible ISIS sleeping agents that will be activated at some future date. We’ve already seen evidence of that happening.
    This sort of reminds me of an old Charles Bronson movie where agents were reactivated by receiving a phone call from someone whispering the last lines of the Robert Frost poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”. Hey, don’t laugh, stranger things have happened. We have no idea of how many sleeper cells have been set up within our borders during #44’s reign. We do know for a fact that he took any chance to insert Muslims into our system of government.
