Refugee Resettlement Watch

50,000 refugee cap should be reached today, then what?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 12, 2017

Then for the remainder of the 120-day ‘moratorium’ only refugees with certain relatives and certain “bona fide” connections to US entities will be admitted.

The Supremes—the US’s new legislative body!

Once we pass the CEILING for the first time in the history of the program, it is my view that the refugees will belong to the Supreme Court since it has taken it upon itself to unconstitutionally WRITE REFUGEE LAW!

Adding to the confusion going forward is the fact that the 120-day moratorium will  run in to late October (Supremes will likely not have ruled on the merits of the case by then).

 

September will be the real test for Trump’s Presidency on the refugee issue….

Late October (when the 120 days will be up) is a month PAST the legally required deadline for the President to send his 2018 refugee determination to the Hill. (Here is one of many posts on the ‘determination’ for new readers.)

In September, how will the White House handle that wrinkle SCOTUS has handed them?

The real test for President Trump on refugees comes in September! What will he propose for FY18?

LOL! Of course one thing the President could do is send a Determination to the Hill for FY18 of zero and tell Congress to reform the program in a serious way during a year-long moratorium.

(The Labrador bill isn’t much.)

Here is the story at KPCC radio in Southern California that got me going on this subject again this morning:

Federal officials expect the national cap on refugee admissions for fiscal year 2017 to be reached Wednesday, ushering in the Trump administration’s temporary travel ban affecting refugees.

Once that happens, all refugees will have to prove they have close relatives in the United States or established ties such as a job before they can gain entry. The new rules will remain in effect for at least 120 days, starting from late June when the U.S Supreme Court ordered the partial reinstatement of the Trump travel policy.

[….]

The State Department posted guidance listing the accepted categories of relatives: “a parent (including parent-in-law), spouse, fiancé, fiancée, child, adult son or daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, sibling, whether whole or half. This includes step relationships. The following relationships do not qualify: grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, and any other ‘extended’ family members.”

A department spokeswoman told KPCC by email that refugees scheduled to travel to the U.S. will be allowed in until the end of Wednesday. Then, “beginning July 13, only those individuals who have a credible claim to a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States will be eligible for admission through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program.”

A relationship with a U.S. entity, such as a university or employer, can also qualify a refugee for entry on a case-by-case basis. However, the spokeswoman said refugees are not likely to have such ties and are more likely to have connections to relatives.

The State Department made clear that a relationship with a U.S. resettlement agency does not count as a qualifying relationship.

Remember when Donald Trump rolled out his first Executive Order and wanted to prioritize Christians and the contractors*** went crazy and said that was not fair. The lead squawker was the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society!

Well, you need to know, before you read this next segment of the story, that we have been prioritizing Jews from, first Russia, and now Iran (processing them after they get to Austria as visitors) as refugees to America! Learn about Lautenberg here.

The agency that Castro directs settles many Iranian Jews who travel to the U.S. via Austria, arriving through a refugee program that benefits religious minorities. He said one of his agency’s refugee clients has been waiting in Austria. She is being vetted by U.S. officials but likely will be stuck in Austria because she has no close relatives in this country.

Resettlement agencies say they have yet to receive guidance from the federal government about what happens once the 120 days of the temporary refugee travel ban are up.  [Again, the 120 days puts us in to the new fiscal year—what will Donald do in September?—ed]

“I suspect that what will happen is there will be a push to make this more permanent in some form,” Castro said. “I can’t imagine going back to the status quo prior to the order.”

I can’t imagine that either!  It would be political suicide for Trump if he reverts to the old system of secret refugee seeding by phony ‘religious’ charities!

All of my posts on the Supreme Court’s overreach are here.

***Federal contractors/middlemen/lobbyists/community organizers paid by you to place refugees in your towns and cities.  Because their income is largely dependent on taxpayer dollars based on the number of refugees admitted to the US, the only way for real reform of how the US admits refugees is to remove the contractors from the process.

    WE DO NOT NEED A 50,000 CAP, WHAT WE REALLY NEED IS A ZERO CAP. WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS TO DO, IS TO STOP CREATING CONSPIRACIES AND STOP BOMBING EACH OTHER, BUT WE KNOW THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. EACH CULTURE AND CIVILIZATION NEEDS TO UNDER GO IT’S EVOLUTIONS, REVOLUTIONS, AND DEVOULTIONS BY THEMSELVES. BRINGING MORE REFUGEES HERE IS JUST GOING TO BRING MORE ANGER AND YES RIOTING WILL BEGIN.

    The answer is easy; keep the Christians and send back the Muzzies.

  3. Well Ann, how many Africans are left in Africa. If the Democrats had their way, they’d bring them all here and turn us into Cuba. Funny thing, the Muslims would not vote Democrat but to the Muslim party. Then make all Democrats submit to Islam and Shariah or be beheaded. It’d serve them right. All the Republicans could move to Africa and claim it as the new United States.

  4. Why are there any enemies of Israel in the USA at all? There should not be one. That one will mate with another teaching lies to their offspring making more Muslims. Get all of them out.
