117 Leftwing groups/refugee contractors oppose bill to BEGIN to reform refugee program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 19, 2017

I haven’t said much about this bill re-introduced in Congress last week mostly because it doesn’t go far enough to really reform the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program.

In my view anything that leaves the United Nations choosing our refugees and the non-profit ‘religious’ (and secular) charities being paid by the head to place those third world people secretly into unsuspecting towns and cities doesn’t go far enough.

U.S. Reps. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, and Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., reintroduced the Refugee Program Integrity Restoration Act on Thursday. Source: http://magicvalley.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/labrador-re-introduces-bill-limiting-refugee-program/article_0ac8aa8e-92e9-5e26-a081-1600491d5b93.html

The financial incentive (that per head payment) to unelected non-profit groups (who then lobby Congress) for more and more paying clients (aka refugees) must be completely abolished.

Halfway measures, as this bill represents, if it ever even got through Congress and to the President’s desk would take away any incentive for abolishing the Refugee Act of 1980 and rewriting the whole thing, so I’m not a believer in taking the ‘first steps’ as I am sure the advocates of this bill are calling it.

Read the text yourself, here, there are some bones thrown to states/communities to have some say in whether they will ‘welcome’ refugees or not, and there is some effort made to get at the fraud that we know is rampant overseas.

The only hope for real reform is if the Trump Administration has the guts to send a determination of ZERO (refugees) in September for FY18 with the proviso that Congress undertake total reform of our refugee admissions policy before any more are admitted!

President Trump or Congress won’t have guts unless you bombard them!

That is what the well-organized and well-financed Open Borders crowd does all the time! See here…..

Here is what the contractors*** and the Leftwing/social justice crowd are telling Congress about HR. 2826:

 

“….it would remove presidential authority to set the number of refugees who may enter the country per year.”

That last line of my screenshot (of a portion of the letter) made me laugh.  So, they are worried about the President losing his authority to set the CEILING—any President other than Donald Trump I presume! So far they have made it clear that Trump is not permitted to have that power!

Quick! tell the Supreme Court! They are admitting that the President  has the authority to set the number to be admitted to the US each year!

The letter continues…

Then here (below) are the groups that signed it.  If you are involved in any of these groups/churches etc. let them know what you think. 

Many of the federal contractors paid to place refugees in your towns are on this letter.  The Ethiopian Community Development Council is not here nor is World Relief. Episcopal Migration Ministries is represented by the Episcopal Church (we learned here the other day that they are one and the same).

Also not here is the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. I have noticed lately that they aren’t signing on to this type of joint political letter.  Maybe you have gotten to them through your parishes?

LOL! You can tell how far Left this list is by the fact that SEIU signed it!

 

 

This post is filed in my relatively new category ‘what you can do’ in response to so many readers asking the question.

You can bombard your member of Congress, your US Senators, and the White House about what you think should be done about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program. Then tell your church leaders what you think if your church signed on to this letter in your name!

*** This is the list of the nine federal contractors being paid by the head to place refugees in towns across America. Those in red below signed this letter of opposition to the House Judiciary Committee.

    That is a well-worded, but diplomatic statement.

    More bluntly, leaving the United Nations to choose the refugees and leaving the non-profit ‘religious’ (and secular) charities being paid by the head to place those inadequately-screened third world people secretly into unsuspecting towns and cities gives aid and comfort to the enemy.

    The U.S. Constitution has a word for that.

    Maybe off topic..then again maybe not. Did you know Labrador is running for ID gov 2018? Knowing that a number of Idahoans oppose refugee resettlement, is he trying to garner their vote but at the same time not pissing off the supporters?

  3. Calling all with message above. Walter Jones congressional Rep for North Carolina does not support a complete shut down of the Refugee Program. Strange since he hates the big spending of the govt. He feels the refugees should be vetted to cut down on terrorists. I sent his office this you tube video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwpOoAYhe6E. It helps to get a name of a staffer and build a relationship with them. Where are you GOP?

      Petitions are okay, but then people think all they have to do is put their name on it and they have done their bit.Now a petition to a specific member of Congress or Senator signed by hundreds/thousands might be very effective if it is delivered with a press release.
