Catholics get ready for National Migration Week launch tomorrow….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 6, 2018

…..where you will be made to feel guilty if you aren’t interested in the message about helping the (foreign) stranger when you see poverty and homelessness all around you!

I don’t really want to write about this again, but awhile back I said that every time I saw a Catholic publication promoting propaganda about their charitable work for refugees and immigrants without mentioning that they are paid MILLIONS of taxpayer dollars for their ‘religious’ good works, I would write about it.

***Update*** Worse than we even thought! Reader finds 2016 funding. Read all about it here.

This is from a South Jersey Catholic publication. Not a word about the fact that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (as one of nine federally funded resettlement contractors***) is paid millions annually from the US Treasury.

For nearly 50 years, the Catholic Church has celebrated National Migration Week, which kicks off this weekend, Jan. 7. This year’s purpose takes on a special significance in light of Pope Francis launching the two-year Share the Journey campaign in September 2017.

Share the Journey is a worldwide effort to build understanding and support within local communities for immigrants and refugees who have come to new lands to rebuild their lives. The campaign is sponsored globally by Caritas Internationalis and in the United States by Catholic Charities USA, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Catholic Relief Services.

[….]

“National Migration Week, and the Share the Journey campaign in particular, are invitations to people of all ages to engage with migrants in a meaningful way, and to be warm and welcoming of these newcomers,” noted Patrick Barry, director of Refugee and Immigration Services at Catholic Charities, whose mother was a Cambodian refugee who fled the Khmer Rouge regime in the 1980s.

“It’s been amazing to see how many groups, nonprofits and institutions have engaged in this campaign and demonstrated their support,” he said.

[….]

“As Catholics, we believe in the human dignity of all people. And so we are called to stand with refugees and immigrants as our brothers and sisters,” said Kevin Hickey, executive director of Catholic Charities, Diocese of Camden, and Catholic Charities USA Trustee.

And so, why not stand for the human dignity of your fellow Americans (first!) who are struggling with hunger and homelessness?

The answer: there is no money in it!

The USCCB’s Migration Fund is 97% funded by you, the taxpayer.

See my most recent write-up on funding for contractors where I report on the USCCB’s 2014 annual report. After I found this one and first reported on it a few years ago, I have never found a more up-to-date financial statement for their migration fund.  I wonder why!

Federal grants and the travel loan collection fees are your money!  http://www.usccb.org/about/migration-and-refugee-services/upload/2014-MRS-Annual-Report.pdf

 

I look forward to the day when a Catholic publication reports on the above facts!

Catholic parishioners might be perfectly fine with taking that much federal money, so why are the Bishops afraid of telling them?

*** The contractors. The USCCB resettles the most refugees of the nine that monopolize all resettlement in the US.

Denmark may take more radical action against immigrant “ghettos”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 6, 2018

Invasion of Europe news!

(I plan to get back to writing as many posts as possible on what is happening in Europe to help America, in my small way, dodge the diversity-is-beautiful bullet during this window of opportunity President Trump has opened.)

Yesterday I reported on German news—can you believe it was even published—about refugees bringing violent crime with them to “welcoming” Germany.

Here is RT on the latest from Denmark which is trying to save itself (unlike Sweden and Germany):

The right-wing populist Danish People’s Party (DPP) has unveiled a radical seven-point plan to tackle social problems in migrant-dominated areas, after the country’s PM said he planned “to physically bulldoze” ghettos.

The most contentious part of the initiative, which has dominated headlines this week, is a curfew on unsupervised under-18 children on the streets of so-called problem areas after 8pm.

Martin Henriksen, the DPP immigration spokesman, says there is already legislation that allows local authorities to impose such restrictions, and that it won’t be applied to students or those with jobs, nor at all times. He said the DPP plan would ensure children study rather than rove in teen gangs.

Henrikson (Danish Peoples Party) says mosques project “divisive symbolism.”

Visible policing will also be intensified in the “ghettos,” which boast some of the highest crime rates in the country. Among other suggestions is a moratorium on the construction of mosques with minarets, as they project a “divisive symbolism,” Henrikson, an MP, told Arab News. Instead, Muslims will be encouraged to pray in unmarked spaces, such as “warehouses and offices.”

In 2017, Denmark received just 3,500 asylum applications – the lowest number since 2008 – but the Danish People’s Party believe conditions for would-be asylum seekers need to be made stricter to whittle this down further. It further proposes that those with temporary asylum must not be given citizenship, but sent back to their homeland as soon as it is safe.

Last month, Henrikson suggested that rejected applicants should be sequestered on one of Denmark’s 300 uninhabited islands prior to deportation.

While most of these ideas would be considered shocking in neighboring Sweden and in Germany, the parties of Denmark’s governing coalition offered no clear official comment – perhaps due to their reliance on the DPP’s 37 parliament seats to secure a parliamentary majority.
