NO Borders Left aimed at destroying ORR Director Scott Lloyd

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 28, 2017

It is over the issue of abortions for illegal alien teens in the care of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement that Lloyd oversees  Apparently Lloyd is not approving those abortions and the leftwingers want the young girls to have a Constitutional right to kill their babies here in America (they could go back to where they came from and kill their babies at home!).

Scott Lloyd at hearing

Deer in the headlights! ORR Director Lloyd at the House hearing. He should have been ready for the harangue from three Democrat women. 

I don’t know enough about Lloyd to get into this fight***, but I just want you to know what is going on.

Frankly, I don’t know how it came to be that the Office of Refugee Resettlement got so deeply involved with the care of tens of thousands of so-called ‘Unaccompanied Alien Children’ in the first place.  They are NOT refugees! They are here illegally!

It might be because at least two ‘religious’ refugee contractors working for ORR get paid to take care of some of the ‘children’ —-US Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. Note the big jump in the latter’s federal funding—was it more contracts for the kids?

You can see what I said about Lloyd trying to defend himself here at the House hearing that was supposed to be on the refugee program, but turned into an attack on Lloyd (then they didn’t have to talk about the malfunctioning US Refugee Program!).

Here is Slate in a story entitled:

Scott Lloyd Must Be Stopped

You can read it yourself. Lloyd will have to be one tough hombre to take what the Left has aimed at him.

I’m guessing when it comes to anchor babies (as these teens’ children would be) versus abortion rights, the Left comes down on the side of the “right” to  kill the babies (with your money!).

***As Director of ORR, Lloyd would normally have the refugee contractors backing him, including the Catholic ones, but on this I don’t see where even the Bishops are going to help him. I could be wrong, but they will be more worried about angering their groupies on the Left and possibly jeopardizing their federal payola.  We will see.

And, if Trump wants to succeed, he needs to be putting some mean (and loyal to him) SOBs in these top jobs.  Nice guys finish last as the saying goes….

Baton Rouge coffee shop to hire only refugee workers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 28, 2017

What is it with coffee shops and their desire to selectively hire a certain class of people? Isn’t there a law against this sort of discrimination?

Earlier we learned about Starbucks’ hiring event in San Diego, now a little start-up coffee shop plans to open in Louisiana and hire refugees and political asylees . 

What! no needy Americans looking for jobs in Baton Rouge? 

What happens if some African American or (gasp) white citizen applies for a job? Will their application be rejected?

From the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report:

A new coffee shop that will hire and help refugees has leased a space in the Bayou Duplantier Shopping Center on Lee Drive, near the intersection of Highland Road, with plans to open in early 2018.

Light House Coffee has been in the works for nearly a year and is the brainchild of Amber and Steve Elworth. He is a minister at Chapel on the Campus. Until recently, she was an English instructor at Catholic Charities of Baton Rouge, which is an official refugee resettlement agency of the federal government.

Through her work at Catholic Charities, Amber Elworth came to realize the many challenges refugees and political asylees face as they try to become self sufficient, so she determined to establish a small business that will help them.

“I wanted to create a structure that will enable more people to get involved in helping refugees,” she says. “The needs are overwhelming and no one person can solve even one person’s needs.”

Light House Coffee will serve a variety of coffees and pastries as well as a few light meals. The cafe will hire refugees and asylees to work as baristas, servers and cashiers.

More here.

I don’t think Starbucks’ gimmick has won them many new customers, and if comments to RRW are any gauge, it has lost them a good number.

Maryland Democrat Senator Ben Cardin wants more Muslim refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 28, 2017

That is how you have to read his opposition to Trump’s latest effort to keep us safe and reform how refugees (coming from terrorist hotbeds) enter the US.

Cardin and Klobuchar

This is rich! In March Senators Cardin and Klobuchar (D-MN) called for more government transparency and emphasized the importance of  OPEN government! Gee sounds exactly like what we want and what those Minnesota citizens were asking for in St. Cloud.  http://www.zimbio.com/photos/Ben+Cardin/Senate+Democrats+Call+Increased+Gov+t+Transparency/aRv5FV3Pyi3

Here, in yet one more whinny article (believe me there are dozens!) where the contractors and others in the refugee industry are wailing about Trump’s latest effort to bring the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program under some reasonable control, Cardin throws his two cents into the debate.

From ABC News:

Even members of Congress weighed in strongly. Cardin — a vocal opponent of much of Trump’s foreign policy — released a scathing statement Thursday on what he called Trump’s “odious” effort to “completely disrupt and dismantle the U.S. refugee resettlement program piece by piece.”

In particular, he accused the new restrictions of being an “unreasonable ban that largely affects Muslims” and “more evidence of the Trump administration’s indifference and lack of humanity towards thousands of vulnerable refugees.”

Cardin has a lot of Muslim constituents in Maryland—rich ones—building new mosques. Of course he is pandering!
