Letter to Sec. of State Tillerson is plea to keep Refugee Program at State Department

Some of you asked me what I think of the idea floated by the Trump team to move the US Refugee Admissions Program from the State Department to the Dept. of Homeland Security.  This letter helped me decide!

If these are the supporters for keeping it at the DOS, then I vigorously support moving it!

Obama Asst. Sec. of State for PRM does not want the USRAP moved out of the DOS.

The letter reported  by the Washington Post here yesterday was spearheaded by none other than Eric Schwartz (the Soros protege who is now heading Refugees International, see here).  It is also signed by eight of the nine federal refugee contractors*** who have over the years established a cozy relationship with the bureaucrats at State. They are counted among the 58 “foreign policy experts.”

In fact there are 40 ‘experts’ and then 18 non-profit open borders activist groups.

Experts include Anne Richard (see our extensive archive here) and Ellen Sauerbrey (don’t miss this 2007 post!).  Both are former Asst. Secretaries of State for Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM). Sauerbrey, from Maryland, ran the refugee program for several years under George W. Bush.

Here is the WaPo on the letter (hat tip: Joanne):

A group of prominent foreign policy experts on Monday called on Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to keep the office responsible for managing refu­gee inflows a part of the State Department instead of moving it to the Department of Homeland Security.

Last month, a leaked memo showed the administration contemplating a relocation of the Bureau of Population Refugees and Migration. Such a change, says a letter signed by 58 former diplomats and national security advisers, would adversely shift the bureau’s focus from humanitarian and policy concerns to solely security issues.

Ellen Sauerbrey, Bush’s Asst. Sec. of State for PRM, helps make this a “bi-partisan” letter.

“We are convinced that the elimination of PRM’s assistance functions would have profound and negative implications for the Secretary of State’s capacity to influence policy issues of key concern to the United States,” the letter states. “It would also be ironic, as this is one of the bureaus at State that has enjoyed strong bipartisan support over many years.”

The signatories include former officials who served in Republican and Democratic administrations, as well executives from numerous religious and humanitarian organizations that work with newly arrived refugees.


Eric Schwartz, the president of Refugees International who helped organize the letter sent to Tillerson, said DHS plays an important role in security screening. But he said it does not focus on foreign policy considerations, such as support for host countries where refugees are awaiting admissions and encouraging other nations to take in more displaced people.  [Why is it our job to nag other countries?—ed]

Your homework assignment for today is to write to Trump and tell him you like the idea of breaking up the cozy cabal at the DOS by moving the US Refugee Admissions Program to the Dept.of Homeland Security!

***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.

Eight of the nine signed the letter to pressure Tillerson.

Noticeably absent as a signatory is the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. I’ve noticed that lately they aren’t signing on to these overtly political letters. Maybe parishioners are getting to their priests! Keep it up!

  1. Salary was never abolished. We really have a one party system, they make us think that they are apples and oranges, but all of them are the same peas in a pie. Why people can not see that they are better oscar performers than those in Hollywood I will never know. There are may be less than five percent of people in government today that really care about the country.


  2. Research the term Hijrah, “Jihad by emigration”!

    Do you want to be a part of the global Caliphate, an Ummah that is being formed by the United Nations (UN), the 57 Muslim nations Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Muslim Brotherhood and their political party, the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups!

    Do you want our tax dollars going to those 57 Muslim nations that claim they form a Caliphate and have control over all Muslims in the world, including those in the U.S.?

    Who said this? When, why, and what has our government done about it?

    Our USELESS politicians have been kicking this can down the road for over 231 years now and refuse to address this challenge. Here is an example:
    “The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every musselman [muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”
    This statement was a part of a March 28, 1786, letter from John Adams and Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, the United States Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Continental Congress, concerning their conversation with Tripoli’s to London, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman as to why his pirates/terrorists hijacked our merchant ships, stole the ships and cargo while holding the sailors for ransom. (Source: Founders Online: http://founders.archives.gov/documents/Jefferson/01-09-02-0315

    Why are we failing to mention the obvious issues in the 1786 letter that still exists today? The ultimate goal of Shariah/Islamic law is a GLOBAL Caliphate, an Ummah ruled by SHARIAH LAW and it is absolutely against our Constitution!


    1. PLEASE READ: a guide to Shariah Law vs. the Constitution https://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/upload/wysiwyg/article%20pdfs/Shariah_VS_Constitution.pdf


      • CONSTITUTION: ARTICLE VI: “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby”

      • SHARIAH: “The source of legal rulings for all acts of those who are morally responsible is Allah.” a1.1, UMDAT AL-­SALIK or The Reliance of the Traveller, commonly accepted work of Shariah jurisprudence); “There is only one law which ought to be followed, and that is the Sharia,” SEYED QUTB;

      “Islam wishes to destroy all states and governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and program of Islam regardless of the country or the nation which rules it. The purpose of Islam is to set up a State on the basis of its own ideology and program.” SEYED ABUL A’ALA MAUDUDI

      For example:
      ISIS/ISIL/Islamic state formed a caliphate, an Ummah and it is ruled by Shariah/Islamic law and they are working to make it GLOBAL. So is the United Nations (UN), the 57 Muslim nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and their political party in the U.S., the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), the largest coalition of national, regional, and local Muslim organizations
      They all want to form a GLOBAL Caliphate, an ummah and be ruled by Shariah/Islamic law. Our USELESS politicians at all levels of government ignore their Oath of Office, our national security and our Constitution Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 “provide for common defense” of this nation and replaced it with Cultural Marxism i.e. political correctness!
      Their 1,400-year-old Shariah/Islamic law movement is not allowed by our Constitution Article VI.
      Here are the main points in 1786; they the same today with the Muslim Brotherhood in America and their plan they wrote to destroy us from within by what they call their “Civilization-Jihad Process” plan.
      a. “it was founded on the Laws of their prophet”;
      b. “that it was written in their Koran”;
      c. “that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners”;
      d. “that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and”;
      e. “to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and”;
      f. “that every musselman [muslim] who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.”
      g. “that it was a law that the first who boarded an Enemy’s Vessell should have one slave more than his share with the rest”;
      h. “which operated as an incentive to the most desperate Valour and Enterprize;
      i. “that it was the Practice of their Corsairs to bear down upon a ship;
      j. for each sailor to take a dagger in each hand, and another in his mouth, and leap on board, which so terrified their Enemies that very few ever stood against them.”
      k. “That he verily believed the Devil assisted his Countrymen, for they were almost always successful.
      The Muslim Brotherhood wrote a plan they call their “Civilization-Jihadist Process” plan dated May 22, 1991 designed to infiltrate American and destroy us from within thus helping them form a global caliphate, an Ummah ruled by Shariah/Islamic law just like ISIS, ISIL, Islamic however, much slower thus not raising suspicion to their motives.
      This is coming to America thanks to the “NEW” Treason Party i.e. ole’ Democrat Party and the RINO/GOP leadership/followers in the soon to be defunct Republican Party!
      I started doing a little research on what is happening in Sweden with the Muslim migration (Hegira or Hijrah – Muslim jihadists who seek to populate and dominate new lands by spreading Islam) and it brought to mind a conversation I had in 1988 with an Israeli fire officer on how he dealt with the massive bombings by Muslims in Israel. He told me simply, do not have them in your country, just watch what is happening in Israel, Middle East, and Arica around the globe because multiculturalism will be coming to your shores! He was correct!
      The Muslim Brotherhood includes:
      • International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT);
      • Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA);
      • Islamic Society of North America (ISNA);
      • Muslim Students Association of the U.S. (MSA);
      • North American Islamic Trust (NAIT); and 23 more.
      The bottom line is this; Islamists that believe in Shariah/Islamic law want to form a GLOBAL Caliphate, an Ummah just like the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS/ISIL/Islamic State/Islamic Caliphate/Daesh and the 57 Muslim nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the only difference is the time to reach it and the methods they use to achieve global domination! What is being called a “refugee” crisis is actually. Hijrah, “Jihad by emigration”.

      Pres. Trump is correct and we must help him fix our challenges since our politicians ignore their Oath of Office/affirmation, our NATIONAL SECURITY, and our Constitution. Our Founding Fathers made it quite clear in our Constitution when they wrote “provide for common defense” and this comment appears in BOTH the Preamble and Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 thus it is the top priority of our Federal government so why do politicians ignore it? Simply put, it is because of political correctness, i.e. Cultural Marxism and how the media emphasizes it thus it must be used to provide them cover and allows them to get reelected!


    2. Each and every politician, bureaucrat, and federal employee take an Oath of Office/affirmation to uphold our Constitution and in the Preamble, along with Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 BOTH state “provide for common defense” of this nation. This makes our NATIONAL SECURITY their #1 priority and refugee resettlement is not one of them!

      Spending a dime on a refugee is not constitutional! In 1794 James Madison, the acknowledged father of our Constitution wrote disapprovingly of a $15,000 appropriation for French refugees saying, “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.”

  3. they shouldn’t move it to DHS because ICE is under DHS, so when it comes to the budget, if the Trump team says they are going to increase the budget for ICE, you know they are actually also increasing the budget to bring more of these 3rd world leeches in . The Trump team seems to favor taking one step forward and two steps back, to make it look like they are doing something to please everyone. Really, Trump has the same agenda as Obama, he just spoke about doing the opposite of Obama before the election, but now that he is in power, it’s more of the same.

    Hopefully cuts will be made to DOS anyway, what good is diplomacy in the current state of chaos that the world is in? Trump himself is the best diplomat we have right now.


  4. The Catholics must be insane if they encourage brining muzzies here. Muslims have routinely desecrated churches in Europe, even slashing the throat of a priest in pubic a year ago https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jul/26/france-shock-second-isis-attack-12-days. And regarding our “refugee” program, what is wrong with the emphasis being on security? most of us don’t wan the refugees put here in the first place, and think they should be kept in camps close to home. That way they can be repatriated once the crisis is over.


  5. My comments to the POTUS today:
    Thank you for your attempts to move forward with securing our country from invaders otherwise known as ‘refugees’. Please break up the cozy cabal at the DOS by moving the US Refugee Admissions Program to the Dept.of Homeland Security!
    Also, since we have now exceeded the 50,000 limit for this year, please halt any and all refugee resettlement. We have too many here now, and these infiltrators are commanded not to assimilate. My great-grandparents were immigrants who wanted to be here, embraced America and what she offers, became citizens, and both integrated and assimilated. Assimilation is what makes the United States of America unique and great.


  6. Thanks anne Great article Can you please post an article as an extending to this one detailing in laymans terms what the responsibilities are of the dept of state vs the dept of homeland security Keep up the good work

    Regards Gavin


    1. this is why there are talks about implementing a “Universal basic income”, look it up if you are not familiar. It’s another step towards communism. When the Democrats are in power again, this might be implemented, and soon everyone will be an impoverished proletariat
