Trump Administration wrongly blamed for closure of refugee offices

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 16, 2018


I told you about it here yesterday, but I’ve noticed over the last 24 hours that the story about Trump’s refugee policies being blamed for closure of NON-PROFIT GROUP offices is all over the media.

Let me be clear!

The blame rests squarely on the design of the US Refugee Admissions Program (and Congress) which has shoveled so much federal money to NON-PROFITS that they long ago gave up any idea of seriously attempting to raise private money to TAKE CARE OF THE REFUGEES THEY CLAIM THEY WANTED!

The program has essentially become a ponzi-scheme built on US Treasury payments to NON-PROFIT groups on a refugee per head basis.  Refugee (paying client) numbers decline, and thus so does the NON-PROFIT groups’ taxpayer support.

For ten years I have been hammering this point—nothing has stopped NON-PROFIT refugee agencies from raising PRIVATE money in the old fashioned way! They could have held more fundraisers, sought out grants from businesses AND from religious groups to tide them over through the ups and downs of the refugee admissions flow.

(If, at this point, they say there isn’t enough private money for this, then that means the public doesn’t want it!)

So instead they got lazy on the federal dole.  It isn’t the Trump State Department’s fault if refugees brought in previous months and years are now left without local support. The State Department can’t legally shutter NON-PROFIT groups.

It is the management at the top of the nine federal contractors (below) who were careless and lazy (all the while collecting exorbitant salaries themselves!) who are to blame if refugees are left in the lurch now, or staff at the lowest levels is dismissed.

Where the h*** is Congress! It is way past time to either dump or completely reform the Refugee Act of 1980!

The nine contractors….

The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare)!  From most recent accounting, here.

    Some refugee workers won’t be sporting the “Hello, my name is Unemployed” tag. Those names can be found in the link below.
    Last November IRC held the annual fundraising gala in NYC. Eight hundred of who’s who attended this glittering event that, according to news reports, raised 20 million dollars. This is a crowd way above GoFundMe sites.

    As a matter of fact, some of the biggest hypocrites of our time attended this event. How many poor refugee families have they taken into their own exclusive enclaves? I’m willing to bet none.

    This extensive list of IRC board members include people who’ve rightfully been labeled war criminals in the past. One example is Madeleine Albright who famously said about the invasion of Iraq: 500,000 dead Iraqi Children was “worth it”…..

  3. IMO: I feel our Boarders should be Closed until we Clean up American. We need to remove Illegals, get our Boarder Wall, Up our Security and Close down every Muslim Brotherhood Org. ! Ridiculous. We have terrorist right here on our soil. On top of the Economic problem, our own people are hurting. Crime is up, Vets and others homeless, our Medical Service’s are a disaster, people starving while we are expected to pay for everyone else. This is Sucking us dry! Trump is Correct, When he says America First. We have way to many Crooked Politicians who’s Agenda is There pockets First.

    All well said, Ann. Before Trump the refugee racket had become an ever mushrooming taxpayer-funded US State Dept-UN Ponzi scheme. In a way, we are lucky that these groups cannot afford to raise such funds themselves since most of their sponsored refugees would probably still eventually end up on the welfare rolls and we would still have the same crime, terrorism and alien demographic cultural clobbering to our Historic American Nation.

      Sometimes I write knowing the other side is reading RRW. Many of their followers and employees have good intentions, and need to know what their leaders have done to them and frankly to the refugees many of whom deserve some sympathy for being pawns in a bigger game the One-worlders are playing.

    As the number of Legal Refugee Admissions decreases, expect the number of Illegal “Refugees” that are secretly flown into the USA at night to increase and be resettled throughout America in Republican strongholds to increase the DemocRAT voter base there.

    1 Year! Look at the difference. Trump is exactly what we needed in this country to straighten is out. You’ve got to break some eggs to make a beautiful omelette! Shut up and let him do his job, call me in 3 years.
