Afghan special immigrant visa (SIV) holders and families enter US in high numbers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 12, 2018

Maryland and Virginia are in the top five welcoming states…

I’ve been told that the flow of these ‘special’ immigrants are helping to keep federal money flowing to the resettlement contractors*** as they are treated as refugees (but not counted as part of the 45,000 ceiling set by the President last September) and as such, the contractors are paid by the head for their work in resettling them.

Just now I checked Wrapsnet to see what those numbers looked like. I’ve written other posts on the topic before, here, so this is an update.

Prior to FY14 we admitted small numbers of the people that supposedly helped us in some capacity in Afghanistan, but the number began to skyrocket in FY14.

The top year so far, 16,866 Afghan SIV arrivals, was in President Trump’s first year in office.

Top states for Afghan resettlement (regular refugees and SIVs) from FY07 to the present were California (20,171), Texas (8,229), Virginia (7763), Washington (2,898) and Maryland (2,745).

Here are some partial screen shots. The whole graph obviously doesn’t fit on the page.

Note that the first column in white is the number of normal refugees we admitted and the second is the SIVs and their family members.

 

Bottom of graph:

Unfortunately, you can’t see the far left with the names of the states.  The number in the dark column is the total number of refugees plus SIVs that went to each state.

 

 

The total number of Afghans admitted to the US, 60,623, above is from FY07 to the present. Less than 10,000 were determined to be refugees.

 

*** Here are the nine federal refugee contractors. They have been complaining as their regular paying client numbers (refugees) have declined, but it seems they have some taxpayer supplied funds coming in with this huge push to bring in Afghan ‘interpreters’ and their families.

The original Refugee Act of 1980, that set up this monstrosity, envisioned a public-private partnership that over the years has almost completely morphed in to a federal program.

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

Stalemate at sea ended: Spain welcomed over 600 migrants, mostly men, rejected by Italy, Malta

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 12, 2018

Yesterday I told you that the Italian government refused entry to a so-called “rescue ship” that had picked up over 600, mostly African illegal aliens, from waters off Libya.

Italy first!

These transport ships have had free passage to Italy for years, but all that is ending now that the Italians have elected a government willing to save Italy for Italians!
