Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service “cautiously hopeful” refugee ceiling will return to 110,000

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 28, 2017

I’m actually stunned that they think that the Trump Administration could be forced by a judge (or two judges) to shoot for a refugee “ceiling” number set by Obama for a year he would no longer be President.

For the zillionth time, even if Obama was  still in the White House there is no legal requirement that the President reach the CEILING he set for admissions the previous fall.

As we showed you here—they never reach the ceiling!

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service and World Relief mentioned in this story are federal refugee resettlement contractors paid through your tax dollars to place refugees in your towns and are most assuredly part of the ‘Religious Left’ I told you about earlier this morning.

Calling all Lutherans! You need to know what is being done in your name!***

Here is the story from Religion News Service:

CHICAGO (RNS) It was her desire to hear the stories of real people — “not just faceless refugees or immigrants” — that brought the Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton to a refugee resettlement agency that provides a range of services to refugees in the Chicago area.

“Especially now, when there’s this fear that’s been stirred up and anti-refugee sentiment, it’s really critical to say, ‘No, these people are our grandparents, our aunts and uncles,” said the presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the nation’s largest Lutheran denomination.

Her visit last week (March 21) to RefugeeOne, a resettlement agency supported by Lutheran Immigrant and Refugee Service, comes at a time when the status of the U.S. refugee resettlement program is uncertain.

On March 15, a federal judge in Hawaii blocked an executive order by President Trump that would have more than halved the number of refugees accepted by the United States from the current ceiling of 110,000.

Now, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is “cautiously hopeful” resettlement will return to the numbers that had been planned for 2017, said Kay Bellor, vice president for programs.

***According to LIRS website these are the Lutheran groups affiliated and supportive of bringing refugees to the US:

Rooted in Lutherans’ faithful and caring response to the challenges facing uprooted peoples, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service celebrates strong collaborative relationships with three national Lutheran church bodies. They are the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod LC-MS, and the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (LELCA).

Go here for our extensive reporting on LIRS, a preeminent member of the refugee industry.

I am forever confident that one day, mainstream media will report on how much of your money these groups are gobbling to promote their progressive world view!

  2. As I have said multiple times on this site and others, most laypeople in The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod (LCMS) are completely oblivious–that is to say, kept in the dark by their church hierarchy–about the true nature and work of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS). Delegates, who represent both clergy and congregations, to the most recent triennial Synod convention voted–get this–to commend LIRS on all their doings! Shame, shame, shame on the LCMS hierarchy for not being honest and forthright with their laypeople about this unAmerican, unChristian organization!

      Do honest Christians also know that these paid church resettlement organizations pulling in the Trojan Horse with OUR money are forced by the government to sign agreements not to proselytize? They are taking in hundreds of thousands of people whose religion teaches hatred and jihad and then adding insult to injury blocking the witness of Christ! I ask the sham “Christian” resettlement organizations what kind of Christian straps financial burdens on their neighbor while gambling with their neighbor’s security for money? This kind of treachery is beyond the pale!

    Let’s see how open-minded LIRS is. I invite fellow Lutherans to post a comment to the 3/22/17 post entitled “Be Not Afraid: Immigration Resources for Congregations.” One of the more disturbing links on this blog is the “Raids Preparedness Checklist” for congregations who (apparently) want to protect illegal church members. See the article at http://blog.lirs.org/be-not-afraid-immigration-resources/

    Hi Ann, how do you not worry about this all the time? I do. I am watching our country slowly being turned into an Islam country. Thank you Obama. I pray God will one day remove them and pray that President Trump will see all of this. God bless Ann.
