Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society: Send $$$ so we can continue to fight the Prez and work with Islamic Relief

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 29, 2018

I told you again about the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) here the other day.

They are one of nine federal contractors receiving millions of your tax dollars annually, AND they were a lead organization suing the Trump Administration over the travel ban.

Raising private money is a good thing, but….

Why should we be required to pay for more than half of their budget for their pet projects (including working to encourage more migrants to cross the US border) as outlined by their President and CEO in an appeal for funds today:

In case you didn’t know, Mr. Hetfield makes an annual salary of over $300,000!  If private donors want to pay that salary that is their business, but taxpayers shouldn’t be on the hook for any of it!

 

Let them raise all of their funding from private donations!

Ask your members of Congress and US Senators over the upcoming break why you should have to pay one dime for their political activities! ($24.5 million of your tax dollars in 2016 alone!)

Highly anticipated EU “deal” on migration is a nothing-burger!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 29, 2018

Because I’ve been telling you in advance about the pow-wow in Brussels yesterday about the migrant invasion of Europe and what the EU will do about it, I’m compelled to give you an update of the disappointing results.

They talked and talked, indeed they talked all night, and came up with what the NY Times even says is a ‘deal’ with “sketchy” details.

Spokane, Washington: Secret decoder ring needed in kidnap case

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 28, 2018

A 28-year-old “man” has been arrested in a violent kidnapping case, luckily the woman fought back and escaped.

Ann Coulter once said that the way news stories are written about crime cases involving migrants and refugees one needs a “secret decoder ring” to figure out what nationality the alleged attacker is and what might be his or her immigration status.

Reader Linda sent me the story from Spokane and this morning I had a few minutes to search news stories about the arrest of Atif Ado.

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society urges followers to take to the streets in wake of Supreme Court decision

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 27, 2018

The Trump Administration has been an unrelenting 17 month assault against America’s values as a nation welcoming of immigrants and refugees.

(Mark Hetfield, CEO of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society)

 

You all know what happened in the Supreme Court yesterday.  In a nutshell, the court affirmed that the President of the US has the power to limit immigration.

However, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society one of the primary groups that sued the Administration from day one about the so-called Muslim ban isn’t giving up and is urging its followers to participate in anti-Trump rallies coordinated by Linda Sarsour’s group MPower!

In the NGO salary sweeps, Juan Sanchez has David Miliband beat by a mile!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 26, 2018

As I mentioned the other day, the issue of the border crossing kids is one I discussed back in the Obama days rather extensively, but the ‘children,’ the mostly unaccompanied teenage boys crossing our borders, are not refugees and so the issue isn’t at the top of my radar screen right now.

 

Juan Sanchez

Juan Sanchez, doing well by doing good!

 

And, the subject is ably covered by so many others.

That said, I do get some pleasure out of demonstrating that Leftwing do-gooders, whose hearts bleed for the children, also happen to be raking in big government bucks from you—the US taxpayer—for their good works.

Southwest Key Programs is one example.  You can read more about it here at wikipedia .  It is largely funded with government grants and contracts.

Reader Mary alerted me to the huge taxpayer-funded salary its President and CEO Juan Sanchez is pulling down.  CNN says it is now at $1.5 million.

I find it amusing that now that Trump is in office these outrageous taxpayer supported NGO salaries are suddenly newsworthy.

David Miliband (CEO of another federal contractor—-The International Rescue Committee) is a piker at $671,749.

The most recent Form 990 I could find (tax year ending in August 2016) for Southwest Key Programs is this one from Obama’s time in office—clearly the Obama ORR was shelling out big bucks to care for detained children.

 

Almost completely government funded….

And, here is the salaries page….

Screenshot (1322)_LI

These are salaries you pay for care of the illegal alien children until they are released in to America when sponsors are found, or upon turning 18!

 

Go here for all of my posts on the UACs.  Some of our usual refugee contractors are also on this gravy train.

UNHCR meets in Switzerland: Gap widens between numbers of needy people and welcoming countries

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 26, 2018

What else is new!

I’ve been following this issue for over ten years and I have never seen the UNHCR report anything but doom and gloom—more people than ever (every year!) need to be resettled in a better country than the one they left. Nothing changes while the US taxpayer foots most of the bill!***

And, heck, we haven’t yet reached the “migrant apocalypse” stage yet.

Climate refugees: Migrant apocalypse still to come says Canadian writer

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 25, 2018

Faithful readers know that I have been following the Leftwing/Open Borders drumbeat and warning about climate refugees for years.  See my category on the topic here.

DVD Amaray CR 8.5x14

Posted at the London Free Press, Canadian writer Gwynne Dyer says what we are seeing in Europe is a “dress rehearsal for the real migrant apocalypse” to come.

Blaming it on climate change, he says that all borders will be closed and people will be left to die.

He mentions (without giving us his opinion) that Hungary, Poland, Italy and Austria are already there.

Economic migrants!

I think he is right—-not the global warming part—that the populations of the third world are growing so rapidly and there simply aren’t jobs enough for mostly young men (in Africa, certain parts of Asia, and in Central and South America) due to the changing nature of work, and so an apocalypse is coming.

My view, not Dyer’s, is that how we handle the “dress rehearsal” depends on tough-minded leaders like Donald Trump, Viktor Orban, Sebastian Kurz and Matteo Salvini to save some parts of the first world for our children and grandchildren.

Gwynne Dyer:

Dyer: Climate change will precipitate migrant apocalypse

 

Around two million migrants have entered Europe claiming to be refugees since 2014, which doesn’t sound like an unbearable burden. After all, the EU has 500 million citizens. Little Lebanon has let in about the same number, although they amount to almost half its own native population.

Digital StillCamera

Gwynne Dyer

But three factors aggravate the situation in Europe. One is that the refugees in Lebanon have the same language, culture and religion as most of the Lebanese, whereas the ones who reach Europe don’t tick any of those boxes.

The second is that only a few of the EU’s 28 countries are carrying almost all of the burden: Italy, Spain and Greece, where the migrant boats arrive, and Germany, which took in almost a million migrants in 2015.

The final factor is that many of the migrants aren’t fleeing war or persecution. They are hoping for a better life in Europe than the one they left behind, and are willing to face great risks and hardships to get it.

So, the humanitarian impulse is blunted by cynicism about the migrants’ motives, and the unequal distribution of the migrant burden among the various EU member states breeds conflict between and inside those countries. The politics already is getting poisonous, and this is only a dress rehearsal for the real migrant apocalypse.

Even now, many of the “economic migrants” are really climate refugees, although they would probably not use that phrase themselves.

[….]

The changing climate will devastate food production in large parts of the Middle East and Africa, and far larger numbers of people than now will abandon their homes and head for Europe. Nobody talks about this in public, but every European government that does serious long-term planning is well aware of it.

This vision of the future colours every decision they make about migrants, for the tougher-minded among them know the borders eventually will have to be closed even if it means leaving people to die.

And some, like the Polish, Hungarian and Austrian governments, and now the Italian government as well, have effectively decided to close the borders now.

So is Dyer saying those governments are forward-thinking by trying to save themselves and their own people, or heartless for not inviting in all of Africa?

Go here to read more of Dyers’ warning.

Mama Merkel update: Nothing resolved in special EU meeting yesterday, try again Thursday

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 25, 2018

Invasion of Europe news…..

As we reported last week, a special EU meeting was called for yesterday as the political pressure mounts on German Chancellor Angela Merkel to do something to control the migrant population that continues to grow in Germany.  See Merkel between a rock and a hard place in age of ‘Aquarius.’

FRANCE-GERMANY-DIPLOMACY

Besties French Prez Macron and Merkel.  Macron in la-la land:   “We are living through a political crisis more than a migratory crisis today.”

I’m struck here by the similarity to our situation on the Mexican border where Donald Trump is both trying to stem the flow in to the US, and attempting to kill the catch and release policy of previous presidents (the major pull factor for those gambling on entering the US).

The answer is the same for Europe—stop the in-flow and hold for sorting all those who have gotten in by building detention centers. Sort out legitimate asylum seekers from economic migrants who can be quickly deported.

Don’t let them roam free across Europe!

International Rescue Committee says US businesses need more low wage workers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 24, 2018

I’ve never thought this was a good argument to be pushed by the supposed ‘humanitarians’ receiving millions from the US taxpayer to place refugees in hundreds of US towns and cities, but they are doing it in the age of Trump.

Unwelcome report

Report was released on World Refugee Propaganda Day.   https://www.rescue.org/report/unwelcome-state-refugee-resettlement-america

Hurting most from the slowdown in the arrival of fresh grunt laborers (aka refugees), according to a new report from the International Rescue Committee headed by former British Labor Party official, David Miliband, are employers in key U.S. industries—including manufacturing, hospitality and meatpacking!

Why must US taxpayers subsidize big business?

If those industries can’t fill their labor needs, maybe they need to raise wages!

And, besides why is it the taxpayers’ duty to subsidize globalists like the BIG MEAT giants by supplying them with third world laborers while paying fake humanitarian groups, like the IRC, gobs of money to sign them up for welfare to supplement those meager wages before moving on to the next fresh batch of paying clients.

Just a few items this Saturday

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 23, 2018

You may have noticed that I generally don’t write on Saturdays, but have a couple of comments I need to respond to….

Donations?

rrw-logo-1

First, I have had requests again about donations for my work (I assume from new readers who haven’t seen my previous discussions about the issue).

I did for awhile have a paypal button here at RRW, but took it down when paypal began to be selective about who could and who could not use paypal based on the website’s political views.  I think they have since reversed themselves on that wrong-headed business practice, but I never put the button back.

In a week, RRW will be eleven years old and my work has been my charitable gift to the country!

That said, occasionally people have sent me checks with small gifts to my Post Office box (address in lefthand side bar) and I am very appreciative of that thoughtfulness because I know it is a show of support and thanks for my work.

Charitable work=freedom!

One of the great advantages of doing what I do—working for no one, for free—is that I can post pretty much whatever moves me when I get up each morning!

As you may have noticed there are certain topics I’m passionate about and am very aware that repetition is needed in order for readers to absorb a particular point.  So from time to time, as a faithful reader, you may say, why am I hearing this again?  It is for that reason—repetition matters—and for the fact that every day new people show up here who haven’t been here for eleven years, or eleven days!

But, some things bore me!  One, is this issue of the mostly unaccompanied alien children.  I wrote extensively about the subject during the Obama years (2014 and 2015 were particularly critical years) and I told readers till I was blue in the face that in addition to federal childcare contractors like Southwest Key, Catholic Charities and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service were also in the business of housing the ‘children’ as they received lucrative government contracts.  And, now I am annoyed to see the same issue cropping up and everyone acting surprised!

A few more years….

….and I will be done!  If by 2020, immigration isn’t under control here and in Europe, we are all done.

Thanks as always for continuing to follow my work here at Refugee Resettlement Watch!
