Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society: Tell Congress we need more $$$ for refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 25, 2017

As I said yesterday, although Trump’s proposed FY18 Budget contains (we are told) enough money for as many as 50,000 refugees for FY18, the refugee resettlement contractors are pushing Congress for more.

The President has the power to set the refugee admissions ceiling for the upcoming year (in “consultation” with Congress), and that is normally done in September.

But, it appears to me that the contractors think they have a chance to move the Republican Congress to appropriate enough money for 75,000 refugees in FY18 and by doing that essentially steal the power the President has under the Refugee Act of 1980 to set the ceiling for the upcoming year.  (Always remember RINOs want cheap immigrant laborers for their business donors!)

Here is an alert I received yesterday. Of course their language is unnecessarily alarmist as we are no longer debating Trump’s original moratorium vs. some number of refugees, the debate is now simply over how many!

 

 

That second link directs readers to this page which begins (under this banner):

 

HIAS:

In the midst of the largest refugee crisis in recorded history, with over 65 million people displaced around the world, the U.S. government must do more—not less—to help refugees.

Please take a minute to urge your elected officials to fund a humanitarian response that demonstrates America’s global leadership and honors our values. We need to make sure Congress provides adequate funding for refugees and allows organizations like HIAS to continue the important work of helping refugees here and abroad.

Then HIAS supplies their supporters with a ready-made letter to Congress.

I cannot overemphasize the fact that the refugee contractors understand the appropriations process in Washington (their financial lives depend on it!), but that citizens concerned with the secret placement of third worlders in to your towns and cities don’t understand it.  And, we definitely don’t have lobbyists (as HIAS does) in Washington to help get your message to your representatives.

As I have said repeatedly, the entire UN/US Refugee Admissions Program should be scrapped and if it is in our interest to take some refugees, a new law should be written. Sadly, after encouraging us with MORATORIUM language, there is no sign that the Trump team will lead any major reform.  The battle is being framed simply around numbers (in a range of 50,000-75,000).

  1. Ann, I am so disappointed in Trump. He simply has let the refugee and asylum racket propagandists to railroad him. Really disappointing.

      Hang in there, we have to keep hollering at him. We have to make him know we heard his campaign promises and make him stick to them (or at least he must show some visible fight against Congress and the Deep state).

  6. THE BACK STORY….you dont know…

    Billionaire Aids Charity That Aided Him

    Were it not for the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, there might be no Google.

    Thirty years ago today, Sergey Brin, a 6-year-old Soviet boy facing an uncertain future, arrived in the United States with the help of the society.

    Now Mr. Brin, the billionaire co-founder of Google, is giving $1 million to the society, widely known as HIAS, which helped his family escape anti-Semitism in the Soviet Union and establish itself here.

    “I would have never had the kinds of opportunities I’ve had here in the Soviet Union, or even in Russia today,” Mr. Brin said in an interview. “I would like to see anyone be able to achieve their dreams, and that’s what this organization does.”

      That’s funny, because if it wasn’t Google, then some other search engine would have been dominant. We’d all be asking jeeves for the latest gossip or poking through webcrawler for the news. There’s nothing really special about google, other than it came in at the right time.
