Tucker Carlson once again interviews one of the bigwigs in the refugee industry—the President of World Relief, Scott Arbeiter—that recently announced it would close some offices around the country as their federal funding begins to dry up.
Here is another of many posts we have on World Relief (Corporation of National Association of Evangelicals).
BTW, Arbeiter claims they are only doing what the government asks them to do. Then why bitch when the government (under Trump) tells them it is time to stop (or slow) what they have been doing for almost 40 years?
These federal resettlement contractors have to go, I have ideas on how to run a small refugee program without them!
Sure we all agree that it makes sense that a mixture of measures be included in the border security plan, but Cornyn is chairman now of the subcommittee in the Senate that was so ably run by then Senator Jeff Sessions.
Sen. JohnCornynhas been in the Senate for nearly 15 years, and apparently has never done anything of significance on the issue (please correct me if I am wrong!).
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) is pushing back against the Trump administration’s call for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, arguing in some areas it wouldn’t be the best option.
“There’s parts of our border which it makes absolutely no sense,” the Senate’s No. 2 Republican told a Texas ABC station on Wednesday. “But what is helpful [is] to have fencing, for example, is places like San Diego, it’s a large urban area.”
Cornyn added that he thought border security needed to include a mixture of personnel, technology and infrastructure.
The point is that if you want to reform the US Refugee Admissions Program (and control illegal immigration), Texas Washington Reps should be the focus.
We look to citizen activists in Texas to lead the charge.
Senator Cornyn as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee (now renamed Subcommittee on Border Security and Immigration) is the key Senator to focus on. Senator Sessions had called this same subcommittee—Immigration and the National Interest—which spoke volumes about what Senator Sessions was trying to accomplish.
So, again, if Texans could get organized to focus on a couple of key representatives in Washington, you could not only save Texas, but all of America!
By the way, Texas Governor Abbott withdrew the state from the USRAP but it is pretty much a useless move since the program there is now run by private contractors. He could sue the feds on State’s Rights grounds, but so far there doesn’t seem to be the will. (Even as Texas continues to vie with California as the number one resettlement state in the nation!)
This post is tagged ‘Where is Congress,’see all of my posts on the subject. By the way, for the most part members of Congress and Senators are hiding while Donald Trump gets beat up on the subject!
I haven’t written about Japan for awhile, and since we have so many new readers, I figured it was time to point this out (again)—Japan only takes a tiny number of refugees!
And, consequently, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees has been haranguing Japan for years to open its doors (and begin diluting their culture!) to the masses of Middle Eastern and African (mostly Muslim) migrants on the move around the world. Japan has resisted.
And, btw, I have not seen the UNHCR harangue China, Saudi Arabia or some other Middle Eastern countries in the same way they nag Japan.
Here is an activist from the UK badmouthing Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, at The Diplomat:
When asked for his view on the U.S. president’s executive order to ban the entry of people from seven Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East and Africa, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s response was very disappointing.“We are not in a position to express the view of the Japanese government,” he said at the Upper House on January 30. Not surprisingly, he did not bring up the travel ban’s issue when he met President Donald Trump earlier this month.
In contrast to the clear disagreement with the travel ban expressed by other world leaders, the Japanese leader’s response received criticism from the opposition and civil society. Many theorized that the prime minister had avoided criticizing the new U.S. president in order to protect Japan’s national interests, in particular its economy and security. Yet others pointed out a more fundamental problem: Japan cannot point its finger at any other country’s immigration policy.
Japan’s record on immigration and refugees is not something that the country can be proud of. In 2016, Japan granted refugee status to only 28 people out of 10,901 applicants. In other words, 99 percent of applications were rejected.
It is not enough for the nags that Japan is one of the world’s top contributors to the UNHCR:
Japan is one of the top donors to the UN Refugee Agency (UNCHR). It contributed $164,726,114 in 2016, making Japan the fourth largest donor after the United States, European Union, and Germany. Yet instead of turning this generosity to welcome refugees on its soil, Japan crosses its arms to those who actually arrive on its doorstep. On January 30, when discussing the U.S. travel ban, Abe added after his response, “At any rate, we believe the international community should jointly cope with refugee issues.”
To learn more about Japan’s limited involvement with ‘welcoming’ disparate cultures to the country, read on.
So far, Japan’s leadership is smart enough to look around the world and ask—why should we invite the problems we see in Sweden, Germany, France, The Netherlands and the US to our tiny country?
