South Carolina governor wants no refugees from six countries named in Trump travel ‘ban’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 30, 2017

So what!

The feds will do what they want to do as most Republican governors have figured out already.  And, since Trump’s State Department is still being run by the pro-more-refugees bureaucrats, does anyone really think they will give a ‘rats rear end’ about the wishes of a governor from a former (gasp!) Confederate state.

Now, if Governor McMaster picked up the phone and called the Prez about his concerns about refugees then that would really be something to brag about (and might even accomplish something)!

And, one more thing (or maybe two!)… I wish these state pols would learn more about the program.  First, we don’t take refugees from Yemen (maybe a tiny handful over the years) and most Iranians coming are Christians.  Then consider the countries of great concern for sending potential troublemakers—Afghanistan, Iraq and Burma—which are not among the six!

I just told you yesterday that we are increasingly bringing devout Muslim Rohingya people from Burma, and they could go to SC rather than a Christian Iranian family!

Most of these governors get snookered (by DOS bureaucrats) because they get some low level staffers to do the research and frankly they couldn’t possibly understand or imagine the tricks the feds and the contractors will pull.

On the plus side, I guess I can say that the governor’s statement at least sends a media message.

Also, new readers should know that your state prepares ‘plans’ for how your state will handle refugees and you can contact your state coordinator (find them here, but contact list is 2 years old) and ask for your state’s plan.  Don’t expect anything more than a mealy-mouthed bureaucratic document, but you might find a bombshell, so do it.

From the Post and Courier  (hat tip: Joanne):

COLUMBIA — Gov. Henry McMaster has requested the federal government no longer resettle refugees in South Carolina from the six countries targeted by President Donald Trump’s travel ban.

Rohingya Muslim ‘refugees’ could be placed in SC instead of Iranian Christians.

The request comes in an annual plan each state submits to the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) in the Department of Health and Human Services laying out how the refugee programs are administered in the state. [By the way, ORR doesn’t choose the refugees, the UN does with the Dept.of State and DHS—ed]

Citing concerns with the vetting process for refugees from areas the Trump administration has identified as terrorism hotbeds, the fiscal year 2018 request from South Carolina’s Department of Social Services asks the federal government to block refugees from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from being directed to the Palmetto State.

[….]

McMaster first publicized the request in a speech Monday night in Anderson at U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan’s annual Faith & Freedom BBQ fundraiser.

He explained that governors cannot stop the State Department from resettling refugees but said “we can voice our opinion on what we would like to do and not like to do.”

“We’ve got nothing against refugees,” McMaster said. “They’re facing all sorts of turmoil and problems.”

But pointing to the ongoing threat of “terrorists in the world,” the governor went on to tell the crowd ….

Continue here.

The crowd (the Republican voters!) will think the gov is protecting them and instead the feds will send them those Afghanis, Iraqis and Burmese Rohingya (probably snickering as they do it!) which cannot be thoroughly screened any more than Somalis or Syrians can.

If SC Governor McMaster really wanted to do something useful he should tell Donald Trump, Lindsey Graham and Nikki Haley to suspend the entire US Refugee Program for FY18!

The “merciless four” EU countries whose leaders do get it!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 30, 2017

See my previous post for background on my title!

Here is the title of this EU Bulletin story:

The Merciless Four Strike Again: Visegrad Group Sticks to “Zero Refugee Policy”

 

Poland and Hungary are still sticking to their unwillingness to accept any refugees despite the busy migrant relocations going on in the rest of the bloc.

Both countries are still refusing to take part in the EU-mandated resettlement despite the fact that the European Commission has initiated an infringement procedure against Warsaw, Budapest and Prague for “non-compliance” with their legal obligations on relocation.

-

Two years ago the Polish people began to let it be known that they wouldn’t be pressured in to taking the EU’s migrant boat people. http://www.middleeasteye.net/news/polands-anti-immigrant-feeling-pure-hate-or-fleeting-backlash-1275151419

 

Polish Minister of the Interior and Administration, Mariusz Blaszczak, informed Brussels that Poland has applied for cancellation of the infringement procedure.

Mr Blaszczak reiterated his country’s position when he said that “stating that the relocation system will heal the refugee problem is false, it’s a lie. EU policy is harmful, not to say suicidal, as regards open borders, ”adding that “Poland will not accept any refugees.” He also said that Poland did not agree that the Treaty grants the Commission rights to interfere in the national powers with regard to security, integration and social issues.

“Paris, Stockholm, Brussels, Berlin, Manchester, Barcelona. How many more European cities must be still attacked by terrorists to make European Union wake up?

To make the European Commission finally admit that ‘blindly’ accepting everyone who reaches Europe’s coast is like looping a rope around Europe’s neck,” Mr. Blaszczak pointed out.

All four Visegrad countries – Hungary, Poland and the Czech and Slovak Republics – have joined their forces against the EU’s 2015 migrant resettlement program that sought to resettle 160,000 refugees across EU states.

Invasion of Europe news…..

It is so mind boggling to realize that supposedly smart people in Europe (Merkel, Macron, etc) cannot see what has happened to them.
