Taxpayer-funded refugee contractors lead anti-Trump rally in DC tomorrow

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 26, 2018

The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) tweeted to come on out to Washington DC tomorrow to ‘celebrate’ the one year anniversary of the President’s first so-called Muslim “ban.”

Here is the facebook page for the event.  If you happen to be in the DC area you might want to swing by and have a look-see.  Take pictures if you do!

(Highlighting is mine)

PRAYER. RALLY. MARCH.

ADVOCATES AND ALLIES TO FORM HUMAN CHAIN AROUND MUSLIM PRAYER AT RALLY MARKING ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S FIRST MUSLIM AND REFUGEE BAN

Impacted refugees, leaders, and dozens of organizations rally in front of White House and march to CBP headquarters in protest of continued anti-Muslim, refugee, and immigrant policies

Washington, D.C. – Hundreds will join local and national Muslim, immigrant, refugee, and civil rights organizations at noon on Saturday, January 27th in front of the White House to protest the one-year anniversary of the first Muslim and Refugee Ban and subsequent bans that have discriminated against communities and dismantled the refugee resettlement program. Impacted leaders still affected by the current bans on Muslim-majority nations will speak about family separation. Refugee leaders will protest the most recent refugee ban, which alongside other policy changes is estimated to result in only 15,000 refugees arriving this year, just a third of the 45,000 cap set by the President – the lowest in history.  [Wow! They think it will be as low as 15,000! They will surely all go broke with so few paying clients!—ed]

No stranger to DC protests.  This is Church World Service’s CEO being arrested in a pro-amnesty demonstration a few year ago.   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/10/26/church-world-service-ceo-says-trump-is-catering-to-white-supremacists-with-refugee-screening-changes/

WHAT: Faith leaders, Muslim-American community members, refugees, and advocates express opposition to a year of Muslim and refugee bans. Allies will form a human chain during Islamic midday prayer and march to the Trump Hotel and Customs and Border Protection headquarters. [Get pics if you go!—-ed]

Later in the day, we will engage in a creative visual act of protest at the Trump International Hotel with someone directly affected by the ban.

A loving Christian representative of Church World Service?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 26, 2018

How is this for timing!

I just wrote a post about how the ‘faith-based’ refugee resettlement contractors are NOT conservatives (here) as they were labeled as such in a story at Deseret News, and along comes this photo.

See the tweet below from Richard Falknor at High Blue Ridge.  So much for decent conservative Christians!

The Latina is wearing a Church World Service shirt as she makes herself abundantly clear.

Church World Service community agitators in action! “WE are here to stay.”

 

Just a reminder!

Your tax dollars fund 71% of the Far Left Church World Service’s budget!

Cut them loose Donald! Cut them loose from the federal teat!

Tell the White House and your Washington Representatives that you have had enough with paying for Leftwing political agitation groups!

And, if your church is a member of Church World Service you better speak up now!

Utah’s Deseret News calls refugee contractors “conservative Christians”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 26, 2018

In a report on what President Trump has done this year to make ‘conservative’ evangelicals happy, a reporter discusses the refugee program and names the federal resettlement contractors as being a group of Christian Conservatives unhappy with the President.

Trump faith leaders

Trump with evangelicals in the White House. I can assure you that no one was there laying on hands from the federal ‘religious’ resettlement agencies.

For most of the article the evangelicals are said to be happy over Trump’s actions so far. And, it is noted that 80% of evangelicals voted for him.

Then this:

Immigration and refugees

“When it comes to his very strong statements on life, on support for Israel, on the Iran nuclear deal, on religious freedom and on judges, we fully expect him to keep his pledge … to the American people.” — Ralph Reed.

After calling for a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the U.S., Trump has signed executive orders temporarily suspending the refugees program, banning Syrian refugees and restricting travel to the U.S. from several predominantly Muslim countries and giving preference to refugees claiming religious persecution. He confirmed to CBN News he saw persecuted Christians as a priority.

Those orders have met with mixed reviews from the courts, as well as from conservative Christians, many of whom are involved in refugee resettlement through faith-based agencies including World Relief, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, Church World Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Make no mistake, those five ‘faith-based’ ‘Christian’ agencies are anything but conservative.

They are actively Open Borders Leftwing political activist organizations. They receive almost all of their funding from you, the taxpayer, and then act as if they are community organizers in the mold of the now discredited ACORN. [I know all of my regular readers know this, but lots of new readers don’t!—ed]

And, of course the reporter never mentions the fact that they are seeing their federal funding cut drastically and so are mad-as-wet-hens over that!

The Mormon Church is donating heavily to those Leftwing agencies!

I wondered if the Deseret News from Salt Lake City was purposefully calling them conservative because the Mormon Church is sending millions of dollars to them at this time.

If you are a Mormon and politically conservative, you better let the church know how you feel about that!
