We have admitted 130,000 Somalis to the US since 1983! Do we have any obligation to clean out Kenyan camps? NO!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 6, 2017

In the wake of the Supreme Court decision on the so-called ‘travel ban’ which does target some Somali refugees, there is much wailing and moaning going on in places like Minnesota as we see here at the Star Tribune.

 

Dadaab2-1080x675

This is the UN camp, Dadaab, in Kenya.  We get the largest number of our Somali refugees from this camp. Are we expected to clean out the camp forever?  Somalis have been producing children there for 27 years, ever since their country fell apart. Why is this America’s problem?

 

See this story at the Star Tribune as Somalis complain that their families are still stuck in camps:

News of the Supreme Court’s ruling that allows enforcement of President Trump’s travel ban sent Minneapolis resident Mohamed Abdirisaq rushing to seek counsel at the local Women Child Safe Center. For him and his loved ones, the decision’s implications are immediate and personal.

Abdirisaq’s wife and three children, who live in Kenya, await resettlement in the Twin Cities.

“I’m heartbroken,” Abdirisaq said. “This decision denies my right to reunite with my family.”

His “right” to reunite! And, by the way, why did he leave his family behind in the first place?

Ayan Isse, executive director of Women Child Safe Center, said “my clients are worried to death. I don’t know how to calm their nerves. Their families are still stuck in the refugee camps and some have even been deported back to Somalia recently. Our country is still not peaceful.”

It is not America’s problem that the Somalis cannot govern themselves! 

And, frankly I believe there are Muslim countries in the world—can you say rich Gulf states–that, if they had the will, could invest in Somalia and repatriate the people. But, they don’t because (in my opinion) they know that the Somalis serve a useful purpose as  the advance guard—Islam’s foot soldiers—to be sent out across the world.

You know it’s time to show you the numbers I’ve compiled over the years for the Somali refugees we taxpayers have funded to move to America.  These are only the Somalis we admitted through the US Refugee Admissions Program. They do not include: temporary protected status entrants, Visa lottery winners, successful asylum seekers or the large numbers of Somalis who are roaming America after getting across our borders undetected.

Will it ever end?

From a report I first posted here:

1983-93:   4,413

1994:  3,508

1995:  2,524

1996:  6,440

1997:  4,948

1998:  2,952

1999:  4,321

2000:  6,002

2001:  4,940

2002:   242    (Guesses why this is so low?  9/11 freaked everyone out!)

2003:  1,708

Here GW Bush picks it up to make up for lost time!

2004:  12,814

2005:  10,101

2006:  10,330

2007:  6,958

2008:  2,523

2009:  4,189  (on the rise again even though family reunification is suspended still!)

2010:  4,884

2011:  3,161

2012:  4,921

2013:  7,600

Fox News is just as big a problem on refugee issue as Leftwing media

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 6, 2017

The other day when we reported that the Heritage Foundation got it so wrong with its “Roadmap for Reform” one of my first thoughts was it is because they clearly are living in a DC bubble and have no idea of what is going on in ‘flyover country.’

Fox News reporter

Elizabeth Llorente Fox News Latino reporter:    https://muckrack.com/liz_llorente

I think it is because the mainstream media isn’t reporting on the trouble in towns and cities where refugee overload has created enormous tensions. We don’t expect fairness from CNN etc, but Fox News is just as much to blame!

This Fox News story by Elizabeth Llorente makes my point.  Llorente clearly hasn’t read very much about the program and then she uses Linda Hartke, of all people, as her source for views from the religious Left.

We will get to Hartke shortly, but first this.  Reporter Llorente clearly got this talking point from the refugee contractors (probably from Hartke!).

The number of refugees entering the U.S. has plummeted since President Trump lifted a four-month ban on admissions.

Only 3,108 refugees came to the U.S. in October and November, the first two months of the new fiscal year. The Obama administration admitted 18,300 refugees in the same period last year. The new numbers represent a dramatic 83 percent drop.

Lazy reporter?

Take a look at this data (below).  What do you see? Those two months she uses as comparison are the highest two October/November admissions for probably 20 years (at least 10 here). Yes, Trump’s numbers are thankfully low, but it is disingenuous to take the top Obama months and compare them this way—this is what the lying Left does all the time!

 

Screenshot (64)_LI (1)

This is a screenshot from Wrapsnet. I cut the later months off so that we could see the early months for the last 11 years more clearly.  November numbers have not been added yet. We know however that the total for Trump’s October and November is 3,108. What steams me is when I see Trump’s numbers compared to the largest numbers Obama ever had in those months. That is what the Leftwing media does all the time, so why is Fox News doing it?

 

In the fall of 2016, fearing that Trump would be elected in November, the Obama administration was working furiously to bring in extremely high numbers in those months leading up to and following the election.  The numbers were so high that refugees were dumped into motels because the contractors couldn’t keep up.

Now to Linda Hartke!

Of all the people to quote representing the nine contractors*** she picked the embattled Hartke and gives her many column inches to lament! (Does she know Hartke personally?)

Don’t these reporters at Fox News read?

Hartke is embroiled in accusations of financial mismanagement. See Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart‘s expose here.

Llorente goes on….

Linda-Hartke-LIRS-getty-640x480

Hartke makes over $300,000 annually and her organization is allegedly in deep turmoil.     http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/11/11/source-claims-financial-mismanagement-fraud-harassment-lutheran-immigration-refugee-service-spark-external-investigation/

Groups that work with refugees lamented the drop, saying the U.S. should not scale back its support for people fleeing upheaval.

Could Fox just once mention the fact that these “groups that work with refugees” are paid government contractors who have a financial interest in seeing ever-larger numbers of refugees admitted to the US.

“It’s tragic, really,” said Linda Hartke, president and chief executive of the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, which resettles refugees. “It’s tragic for refugees who’ve fled for their lives, who are simply looking for the chance to be safe and provide for their families and see their kids go to school and live in dignity.”

She said to Fox News, “It hard for many Americans to understand why this administration fails to see that we not only have an international obligation to protect the most vulnerable, but an opportunity to demonstrate American leadership.”

As for the administration’s withdrawal from the global talks on migration, Hartke viewed it as bewildering.

“The global compact was an opportunity, including for our neighbors, to be much more thoughtful about the flows of migrants, what’s good for this country and for our neighbors as well,” Hartke said. “Having these conversations in a global context is something we shouldn’t be afraid of.”

And, in light of what is happening inside Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, I have to say that Hartke has chutzpah!

Readers, stop believing everything Fox News says, please read many sources of alternative media to become fully informed.

Here, for new readers and for reporter Llorente, are the nine federal resettlement contractors paid by you to place refugees in your towns and cities.  These middlemen get paid by the head for their ‘charitable good works,’ so they have no incentive to ever see a reduction in numbers.

Australians blame US for ripping apart families in that “dumb deal”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 6, 2017

It is not too late!

Dear President Trump halt the “dumb” Australia deal where we are resettling illegal aliens who are Australia’s problem to unsuspecting American cities.  You had the right America First! instincts back in February when you called it a “dumb deal.”

This is a no-win for America!

australian detainees

The mostly Muslim men, some held in detention for 4 years, are being processed as refugees for Anytown, USA. So far the Trump Admin. has admitted over 50 with another 90 approved to be resettled in a month or so.  https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/11/27/trumps-dumb-deal-more-australian-detainees-will-be-arriving-in-the-us-after-the-first-of-the-year/

Here we learn that the US State Department supposedly only wants single men in the unprecedented deal Obama struck just as he was leaving office.

(For new readers, see my Australia deal archive by clicking here to catch up!)

And, so Australian leftwing politicians and the media there are showing that the deal is dividing families!

Again, the US is made to look bad, so let’s scrap the whole thing!

From SBS News Australia:

Refugees being held on Nauru are being encouraged to sever ties with family members in Australia when applying for resettlement in the United States, prompting an angry response from parliamentarians.

But Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has defended the direction, pointing out only those held in offshore detention can be considered under the US deal.

Recordings of phone conversations and an email chain obtained by The Guardian, detail Australian Border Force encouraging refugees on Nauru to permanently separate from family members in Australia.

[….]

A US resettlement deal struck between former president Barack Obama and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull provided a possible path out of detention for refugees detained offshore.

The US has reportedly preferred to resettle single people rather than families.

The UN Refugee Agency recognises the integrity of the refugee family is both a legal right and a humanitarian principle.

Go here for more.

Let me repeat, this whole deal is unprecedented and should never have been consummated!

These are illegal aliens who sought asylum in Australia and are thus Australia’s problem!

Imagine the uproar if asylum seekers at the US border were detained and shipped off to Australia or where ever.  Can you hear the roars of outrage from the worldwide Human Rights Industrial Complex.
