Refugee contractors putting the squeeze on Potus, you need to squeeze back

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 6, 2018

refugees welcome anti Trump

Protesters eager for more refugees demonstrate against President Trump

 

I know, I know, you are probably getting sick of hearing from me on the issue of the upcoming Presidential Determination on the number of refugees to be admitted to the US in Fiscal Year 2019 which begins on October first—less than 2 months from now.

But, I must keep talking about it because the Open Borders Left and especially the nine federal refugee resettlement contractors are lobbying day and night to pressure the Prez into going back to the levels they enjoyed during the Obama presidency.

They are in desperation mode!

In fact, if the levels don’t pick up for some of the nine contractors*** one or more could go belly-up financially in the coming year since they receive much of their federal boodle on a per refugee head basis.

Reader Joanne sent us this appeal from the International Institute of New England and I’m posting it here as a screenshot so you know what they are telling their groupies to do.  The International Institute is a subcontractor of the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (the same contractor I mentioned in my post from Bowling Green, KY the other day).

You need to take a few minutes and tell your elected officials what you believe should be done right now.

I’m not giving you a script as they do because any Congressional staff worth its salt will recognize an astro-turf campaign. They obviously don’t think their people are smart enough to write a few sentences on their own.

Tell your elected officials what you think (and the President too) in polite terms. In fact if you see them in person during the August recess, tell them in person!

I like the idea of putting the whole program on hold (there is NO legal requirement to take a single refugee) until Congress gets off the dime and reforms the entire US Refugee Admissions Program which includes getting the UN out of our refugee-selecting business!  But, please tell them what you think in your own words!

Here is what the contractors are telling their followers to do:

By the way, the cap is not a goal, it is merely a ceiling the administration can’t go over without consulting Congress, but the contractors want you to think it is a “goal.”

I know you probably think it’s a waste of time to tell members of Congress what you think, but please take a few minutes otherwise they will say they never heard a word from anyone looking to reduce numbers or reform the program.

And, of course, and more importantly, be sure to tell the President what you think he should do.

White House contact information is in the right hand column here at RRW.

 

*** These (below) are the nine federal resettlement contractors which are largely paid for their ‘humanitarian’ work by you, the US taxpayer.

As the numbers of incoming refugees decline so too does their income (they are paid by the refugee head!).  A continued reduction in the number of incoming refugees could cause one or more of these supposed non-profits to go under due to poor budgetary management—they never planned for a rainy day when federal bucks might dry up!

Another low year, perhaps lower than this year’s 20,000 plus year, could completely blow to smithereens the budget of one or more of these federal contractors which are demanding a cap of 75,000.

The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees into your towns and cities and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare)! 

From most recent accounting, here.

  1. I have already sent President Trump the information about what these contractors are being paid for dumping these refugees on towns an small cities on the taxpayers to support. I suggested he not take anyone but the Christian’s or a few other refugees that are being persecuted. I hope he pays attention to what I said.

    • There needs to be more oversight before ANYBODY is let in as an immigrant. Regardless of religion, many liars and swindlers have been let in because they were pretending that they were persecuted but they were not. Just because somebody says they practice a specific religion does not mean they do. If any preference is given to a specific group with regards to identity or religion, that is where problems start. Actually, that is what is happening now with the current immigration and refugee resettlement situation. People should only be let in according their ability to contribute positively into the American economy and society. Just because somebody is related to somebody else or willing to work cheaply should not be a basis of being allowed into the USA. Instead of bringing in people from conflict zones, there should be a stronger effort to resolve conflicts overseas instead of bringing in people as refugees. Unemployment, homelesness, and substance abuse have killed just as many local Americans as any conflict which has affected the people overseas. What I am saying is NO REFUGEES, PLEASE!

        I DEFINITELY AGREE WITH YOU, THERE HAVE BEEN MANY POSING AS CHRISTIAN, CIRCUMSTANCES, ETC…BETTER YET LET PEOPLE IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES AND OWN REGIONS OF THE WORLD RESOLVE THEIR OWN CONFLICTS, AND THAT WAY THEY CAN FIND OUT FOR THEMSELVES WHAT WORKS AND WHAT DOES NOT, AND AS A RESULT BECOME A MORE MATURE NATION. HELPING THEM RESOLVE CONFLICTS WILL NOT STOP THEM FROM ENGAGING IN WAYS THAT ARE NOT BENEFICIAL. FOR EXAMPLE: WE HAVE SEEN STARVATION IN AFRICA; ALTHOUGH, AFRICA IS RICH WITH IT’S MILLIONAIRES AND BILLIONAIRES, WE HAVE FEED AFRICA, BUT THESE PEOPLE NEVER WANT TO STOP REPRODUCING SKELETAL BABIES. THIS DID NOT HELP, IT ONLY MADE THINGS WORSE, AND THEY HAVE LEARNED NOTHING.

  2. Ann, you’re doing great work. I will contact my congressman. I live in NY, definitely a waste of time contacting Senators Gilibrand or Schumer.

  3. Religious organizations receiving Federal money to position refugees in America? Where is the Separation of Church and State provided for by the Constitution? Very steep and slippery slope indeed.

      The separation is only demanded when the church goes against liberal orthodoxy … never demanded and even welcomed when state (public, taxpayer) dollars flow to the churches on the religious LEFT. I’ve been asking for years—where is the ACLU on the issue?

      THIS COUNTRY IS NOT JUST ON A SLIPPERY SLOPE, WE ARE NOW ON A CATACLYSMIC MUD SLIDE, AND RIGHT AS THIS VERY MOMENT WE ARE SLIDING AND CONTINUING TO SLIDE. THE ONLY BEINGS THAT ARE ON SOLID GROUND, ARE OUR REPLACEMENTS, ALONG WITH THEIR ANCHOR BABIES. MAKES YOU WONDER WHY THEY DID NOT DO AWAY WITH ANCHOR BABIES LONG TIME AGO??? ANCHOR BABIES BRING IN MORE OF OUR REPLACEMENTS. THROUGH VARIOUS STREAMS OF INCOME OF OURS AND THEFT WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION, WE ARE TAKING CARE OF THEM.

  4. I am dismayed when I look at the list of contractors. Mostly church organizations being paid by the Federal Government with taxpayer dollars. I have no problem with my church providing humanitarian aid to refugees they feel are in desperate need and soliciting and receiving donations from the church members who agree. However, I object vehemently with this violation of our Constitution which prohibits state sponsorship of any religious organization. When a religious organization starts working for and being paid by the Federal Government we are on a very steep and slippery slope to losing the concept of Separation of Church and State.

      I’m so glad to know that continuing to post and repost the list of contractors is useful and reaching more and more taxpaying Americans who have had no idea that this has been going on since at least 1980!

    Oh no! They will be HEARING FROM ME! The only people I want to see come in is South African Farmers having their land being taken without compensation & being murdered & Christians being being murdered over in other countries 1) because they have never been allowed refuge before 2) only after being vetted 3) that should come in under the 20-25000.
    Now some people might call me a bad person or a racist for saying these things, however I thought the point of taking in refugees was actually for those forced to leave a country due to persecution or fear of persecution because race, religion, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion (according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary). The South African Farmers (just because they are WHITE does not mean they are NOT ELIGIBLE) are a perfect example, as are the Christians being persecuted in Muslim dominated war torn countries & if some of those “refugee resettlement places” REALLY WANTED to help, well that’s who they should be helping! But NO, Notice how they target a specific ethnic group?I called a few of them & asked about the South African Farmers & if they would be reaching out them, NOT ONE said they had any plans & they were unaware of any turmoil in South Africa. I asked one woman if she was serious? She responded back to me “Do not call here again” WOW!
    I have no issues in helping people who are in worn torn countries, but we also have problems here in America & it angers me that Christians & the SA Farmers are NOT apart of these people’s agenda. I believe we NEED TO HELP THE HOMELESS & OUR VETS HERE FIRST & FOREMOST! The homeless population is growing by the day, and believe me I know I live on the West Coast I see it first hand. Thank you for this information. I will be calling my senators (Who want MORE IMMIGRATION, but I will let them know anyway) and my congresswoman who for slowing it WAS DOWN. I appreciate these numbers! Its nice to have these when calling them!
