Message about your e-mail notices

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 17, 2018

rrw-logo-1I’m sorry if you signed up and subscribed to RRW and then without explanation you stop receiving those e-mail notices each time I post.  

Know that I can’t control those e-mails and have complained on many occasions to WordPress.  Another reader today alerted me to the problem. She, like most readers who stop getting the e-mails, think that I am (for some reason) not writing.

Additionally, some of you have said that you attempted to re-subscribe and cannot.

I don’t know if this is being done on purpose by WordPress, or your e-mail server has decided they don’t like my work, or simply a case of lousy service from WordPress.

But…..

I can’t emphasize this enough: please please just come to RRW directly and see what I have posted that day or the day before (or the day before that….).  You don’t need to wait for an e-mail!  And, besides there is so much more here at the blog itself than you get in an e-mail. Check out Frequently Asked Questions in the header for example.

Just put this in your favorites and visit every day (or every few days):

 https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/

Or, if you are on twitter, follow me because I put all of my posts there, plus a whole lot more news you can use!  I am @RefugeeWatcher (you will find me also by searching for Ann Corcoran).

Thank you!

Refugee contractors planning ‘Week of Action’ against Trump

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 17, 2018

Where is Congress? The US taxpayer should not have to pay ‘non-profit’ groups who engage in Leftwing community agitation against the President!

Cut their funding, for goodness sake!

Adding insult to injury they are aligning themselves with the hardest of the Hard Left like CAIR, the ACLU, Indivisible, and Move-on.org. in the upcoming #NoMuslimBanEver event!

Just now I did my regular visit to the Refugee Council USA (lobbying consortium for refugee agencies) website and see this huge banner headline:

We told you about their anti-Trump rally last fall, here.  Now they plan a week of it in various locations around the country.

nomuslimban ever

And, RCUSA directs people to this ACTION TOOLKIT.

You need to go to the toolkit and take action too—just use their model!

Also, see if a rally is being planned near you, if so, counter it in some way!  The important thing, no matter how you do it, is to get the message to your fellow patriotic citizens that these groups (including many of your own faith-groups) do not speak for you!

Here are the opening paragraphs of the toolkit that is obviously supported by the nine federally funded refugee contractors*** that make up the guts of RCUSA.  (Remember Church World Service is their piggy-bank)

I could be wrong, but as of this writing I think they have left this open in edit, if so, have fun!  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uj1iUjNh-5QcJEaK9G4pP2k80Ef6EPzCC1X-GGHr7rw/edit

 

***The federal refugee contractors that are all members of the secretive RCUSA.

Readers, you have two choices: speak up or quit your church!

If you are a member of one of these faith groups (btw, many mainstream Protestant churches are member communions of Church World Service) and disagree with them joining CAIR etc. against the President, you must start to speak up in your church or synagogue! The cultural Marxists knew they had to get to the churches to change America and they are doing it!

The number in parenthesis after each is the amount of their income provided by you (from the US Treasury) in 2015.

It must end! Are they going to be ‘humanitarian’ groups helping refugees or are they Leftwing community agitators? If Anti-Trump community organizers, cut them loose from the federal teat!

They can have their free speech, but not with our money!

This post is filed in my ‘What you can do’ category, here.  You will find lots of ideas you can do from the comfort of your homes!

US Refugee admissions plummet even further

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 17, 2018

On the first of January we reported the facts about the extremely low refugee arrival numbers so far in this fiscal year (FY18 began on October 1, 2017) and now Michael Leahy (Breitbart) has a summary of where we stand during the first two weeks of January.

201 is the number for the first two weeks and the fact that it is low is the reason you are seeing so many articles popping up in local papers quoting resettlement agency employees wailing about Trump-the-meany. 

For the umpteenth time, these ‘non-profit’ groups’ federal funding is tied to the number of refugees arriving, so budgets are being wreaked and thus the hissy-fits.

Frankly, if they had raised sufficient private money (in the ways normal charities do), they wouldn’t be so on-the-edge in lean times.

In fact, if they had raised private resources they could keep themselves busy by taking better care of the refugees they previously dropped off in your towns!

But, here is the truth of the matter, they can’t raise enough private money because the general (giving) public isn’t behind what they do!  They need to have their hands in taxpayers’ wallets in order to survive!

Enough of my usual harangue, here is Leahy at Breitbart:

Refugee admissions to the United States fell to a new low during the first two weeks of January.

Between January 1 and January 15, the number of refugees admitted into the country fell to a mere 201, the lowest number admitted during any two week period in more than a decade.

Below is a map of where the 201 went. The numbers are hard to read, but top five ‘welcoming’ states for the first two weeks of January are: Washington, California, New York, Ohio and Minnesota.

From Wrapsnet for January 1-15, 2018  http://www.wrapsnet.org/admissions-and-arrivals/

 

Leahy continues….

Seventy-nine percent of these refugees, or 158 out of 201, came from four countries: Ukraine (80), Burma (29), Bhutan (28), and Eritrea (21).

The religious mix of arriving refugees continued the trend seen in the first three months of FY 2018 from September 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017: More Christians and fewer Muslims than under the Obama administration.

Eighty-five percent of these refugees, or 171 out of 201, were Christian, while only four percent, or eight out of 201, were Muslim.

This contrasts dramatically with the last full fiscal year of the Obama administration, FY 2016, when 46 percent of the 84,995 admitted refugees were Muslim and 44 percent were Christian.

[….]

Voluntary agencies (VOLAGS)***, who have been paid more than $1 billion a year by the federal government for more than the past decade to resettle refugees, are beginning to feel the financial pressure caused by the reduced revenue associated with fewer refugee arrivals.

[….]

A number of local resettlement agencies operating under the broader umbrella of the VOLAGs around the country are either shutting down their operations or shrinking them dramatically.

“Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Dubuque [Iowa] is preparing to end its refugee resettlement program after 77 years in operation. The primary reason the program is closing down is because the numbers of refugees are down,” Catholic News Service reported last week.

[….]

In September, President Trump set the ceiling of new refugee admissions for FY 2018 at 45,000.

Based on the current rate of admissions, total FY 2018 numbers are likely to be well under that number. If refugee admissions continue at the same pace as they have for the first three and a half months of FY 2018 for the remaining eight and a half months of the fiscal year, total refugee arrivals for the fiscal year will be slightly less than 19,000.

There is much more here.

***VOLAGs is what the nine federal refugee contractors like to call themselves. I call them government contractors. As long as taxpayers pay them by the head to place refugees in your towns and cities while they, at the same time, are permitted to act like political community organizers and agitators, there can be no reform of the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program.
