GoFundMe page demonstrates again: US can’t afford more refugees!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 29, 2017

What a coincidence, just as I posted my previous report from California about refugees adding poverty to already impoverished areas, here comes more news about refugees who can’t afford housing (Afghans again too).  Hat tip:Joanne

It is commendable that citizens may now take up the cause of this mother and son (private charity should be the primary source of support anyway!), but notice this is temporary until this Afghan ‘refugee’ can get her Social Security Disability!


We (Chuck Ackerman & Catherine Donnelly) are looking to raise rent for our new neighbors on Cleveland’s west side, a mother and her 14-year-old son who are refugees from Afghanistan. We will call them “Aisha” and “Majid”. Because of the situation they have fled, we’re not using their real names.

US together

US Together is a Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society subcontractor

As volunteers with refugee settlement agency US Together, we met the family soon after they arrived in the U.S. in December 2016. Aisha is an amazing cook and host while soccer-loving Majid wants to be a doctor someday. Although Aisha is working on her English, Majid uses his great English skills to translate for his mother.

But the violence they left behind has left Aisha with many physical and mental traumas that prevent her from working. As an educated woman, Aisha faced persecution in Afghanistan and bears the scars. Since her medical history has been tough to document, her first application for Social Security Disability was denied.

She is working with a great local lawyer to appeal and we feel they have a strong case. But the appeal is expected to take 12-18 months and in the meantime, the family needs to pay rent.

Their rent is $550 per month, so we are looking to raise $6,600, or 12 months of rent. That said, every cent counts! Each month of rent we can raise will get the family closer to the date they can get the benefits they need to meet their own needs. The next date they need $ for rent is December 1, 2017. We’ll be keeping the fundraiser going until we meet the goal or the family wins their appeal.

As refugee support groups face drastic funding cuts these days, the resources available for families like this one who are already here are dwindling. That’s why we are turning to you for help.

By giving to this fundraiser, you will help this family achieve the peace of mind and breathing room they need for Aisha to work on her health and recovery from trauma and for Majid to focus on succeeding in high school and build the foundation he needs to one day become a doctor and help others.  [I don’t want to sound too cynical but I swear in every refugee story there is a kid who wants to be a doctor!—ed]

It’s true that the family has other needs, though this fundraiser is focused on the basics of maintaining their housing. But if you have any ideas or resources you’d like to share or have questions about their other needs, please let us know!

We are so grateful for your support!

Watch this space for updates—we may plan a good, old-fashioned rent party!
Help spread the word!

Bringing poverty to America…..

Mark Hetfield

Mark Hetfield

New readers need to know that when the original Refugee Act of 1980 was debated in Congress, sponsors like Ted Kennedy, promised it was not about importing poverty!

Resettlement contractors like US Together get federal support for the family for about 3 months at which point they drop them like hot potatoes to get ready for their next paying clients.

They actually call them clients!

By the way, US Together is a subcontractor of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society where its CEO makes over $300,000 a year.  Sure hope Mark Hetfield is contributing to this poor woman’s  rent as he is busy lobbying Congress for more refugees (and trashing Trump!).

  1. What the hell is wrong with our government?? SS Disability?? I and all other USA citizen who paid into SS all our working lives are outraged especially since there has been no significant increase in COLA for the last 8 years! SS money is for the benefit of all who paid for it. Stop giving OUR money away to people who shouldn’t even be here in the first place.

    I’m rather confused about a refugee qualifying for disability. As a mom who chose to stay home and homeschool my children, I am now 2 credits short of the 40 points we all normally need to qualify for benefits. Social Security sent me a statement and they pointed out the fact that should I ever need disability, I will not qualify because I am short the 2 credits. No big deal, as I will work and make them up, but I suppose if I were not a citizen, I would qualify for whatever I need, regardless??? Any person in authority who is making these decisions that are destroying America, need to be arrested for treason. Ditto for all those running the human trafficking refugee organizations and all others who are complicit.

    “Social Security Disability”…for an Afghan refugee…who never contributed a dime to the system? Are you effin’ kidding me!
    So, if your house burns down, does your neighbor get an insurance check, too? I think NOT!
    If you don’t put in, there should be NOTHING for you to take out. Period!
    Pardon my absence but I have to wash the blood off my ceiling – AGAIN…

    • If she is required to have 12 quarterly Social Security “credits” = 3 years worth of payments into Social Security for eligibility, then no, she will not receive SS Disability. If found disable or handicapped, she will be put on Social Security SSI Supplemental Security Income where you don’t have to contribute to the system.

      “Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a United States government program that provides stipends to low-income people who are either aged 65 or older, blind, or disabled. Although administered by the Social Security Administration, SSI is funded from the U.S. Treasury general funds, not the Social Security trust fund.”

        Thanks for the info but, as far as I’m concerned, she shouldn’t be getting anything, even welfare for at least 3 years; just like my parents couldn’t when they came here; that was in ’48.
        They had to find a sponsor, find work, find their own housing and stay out of trouble for a minimum of 3 years. Even then, they never drew anything until their mid-60’s.

        • I agree. The US federal, state and local governments use the American taxpayer as a slave “milk cow” where the governments are constantly trying to milk the cow to death. The governments have absolutely no consideration for the taxpayer but seem to have a compulsion to give American taxpayer money away to beggars from the Third World.

          I thought there was a law against slavery in the USA (13th Amendment to the US Constitution 1865) but if you don’t pay your property tax to fund public school for illegal aliens, the county sheriff will come around and shoot you in the head so he can sell your house so the little illegal alien kids can get a “free” public education at the taxpayer’s expense.

  4. Why do Jewish organization want to bring in Muslims to kill Jews? That doesn’t make a lot of sense unless you think of all Jews as psychotic “Woody Allen” Jews, also known as the “self-loathing Jew.”

    I read or heard somewhere (e.g. Michael Savage radio program?) that Jews have an inferiority complex from their days under the Czar in Russia and that where ever the Jews go, they want to destroy the ethnic majority power structure to prevent the next Pogrom in their head.

    Examples (some hypothetical) of Jewish destruction of ethnic / religious majority rule:
    — The West: destroy the White Christian power structure by importing non-Whites and non-Christians,
    — Burma: destroy the Buddhist / Asian power structure (the Jews would support the immigration of Muslims from Bangladesh to Burma to kill the native Burmese)
    — Nigerian: destroy the African power structure by importing Whites, Arabs or Asians etc.

      John Horton,

      Glad you brought this up. There are two main theories. You are partly correct.

      Part of it is fear Whites will rise up again as in Hitler, the reason they are doing everything they can to cause Whites to become a minority…overwhelm Western countries with third-worlders causing European Whites to become a minority. Notice how the left is always calling us Nazis. That explains why they want Muslims to come. Few Europeans are permitted to come here at all. It’s irrational, but their fear of Whites is much more than it is for Muslims. 80% of the Jews in this country are liberals. 73% of them voted for open borders, unlimited immigration and refugees Hillary. Most of the other 20% are neocons. Of the 20%, there are Jews who are very thankful the U.S. took them in after World War II and love our country and the Constitution.

      Another common thought is a takeover of the country by Communists. If you are old enough to remember the Communist scare, the spying by Jews, Joe McCarthy, well, Communists never left. 80% of the Bolsheviks in Russia were Jews. – Karl Marx, father of Communism was Jewish. Jews are in control of the media, education, entertainment, banking, and the government (Deep State). By the way, this was the very reason Hitler wanted them out of Germany. They had taken over. He feared Communism, not only in Germany, but all of Europe, and wanted to take Germany back for the Germans.

      Fearing Whites would stop the takeover by revolution, they decided to do it by stealth, brainwashing Whites to do their bidding…see how grade, junior and senior high students and college students have been indoctrinated, notice TV programming making Whites look stupid, particularly White males, promoting feminism so women don’t want to have children or wait until their fertility has decreased, disobeying the Constitution, anti-White Anti-American rhetoric, White Privilege, nothing done about increasing black violence against Whites, turning non-Whites against Whites, removal of our history (Confederate monuments even Christopher Columbus), anti-Christianity, Affirmative Action, promotion of amoral behavior, gay marriage, transgenders, open bathrooms, miscegenation, even the Supreme Court and churches have been infiltrated.

      Notice how all Charlottesville protestors against Confederate statue removals and the rest of us are now called White Supremacists, Nazis and KKK members. The truth is most were peaceful Whites concerned about destroying their history. The media focused on some of them chanting, the few fighting in self-defense against Antifa, and there were some uninvited neo-Nazis who decided to go and a few KKK members, but there’s suspicion the one carrying the Nazi flag was planted by the left. He was seen getting out of the bus carrying Antifa members. All intentionally designed to destroy White influence and power in their own country.

      In order to accomplish the takeover, Whites must become a minority, better gone. One of the many psyops they use is Alinsky rules for radicals against us. Used by the media, Democrats, especially Chuck Schumer all the time. One is “Accuse others of what you are doing.” The left has become very good at that. These psyops explain the vicious attacks on Trump, the lack of cooperation — Republican legislators are in on it too. I’d throw in the FBI, as well. Trump’s fighting this takeover, but not sure he knows what is going on. Maybe he does. Bannon and Gorka know, but now they’re gone. If anyone doesn’t think the left hasn’t been taken over by Communists, open your eyes. Look up Communism to see the similarities with what is going on here and in Europe. Liberalism and Progressivism are just benign names for Marxism and Communism, same thing.

      I might add this indoctrination really began around the same time as the 1965 Immigration Law that opened our doors to the world. Five Jews created the bill and got Ted Kennedy to promote it. So, if you think our legislators are traitors, most of them were in college after that time, so they have been indoctrinated. Why some of us escaped that indoctrination is a good question.

      By the way, Antifa are admitted Communists and look at what they have been getting away with.

      Over 50% of the campaign donors are Jews. The largest lobby group is Jewish. ACLU, SPLC, and ADL are all Jewish.

      I think there is merit and proof for both theories in play simultaneously.

      There’s too much to go into here. It took me eight years of study to learn all of this. At first, I didn’t believe what I was reading so I stopped, but it haunted me for about six months. Then I spent most of my spare time researching, now following them. It was shocking! To think our government was complicit and still is except Trump. I hope Ann posts this. We’re never permitted to say anything about Jews on most websites.

      I recommend several books by Anthony Napoleon. They even tried to stop this highly educated man from writing these books.
