Syracuse, NY letter to editor: help me with Catholic Charities fuzzy math

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 15, 2018

I’m happy to report on a letter-to-the-editor at Syracuse.com because I had meant to post on the original article that generated this reader’s letter and never got around to it.

Letter-writer George Checksfield is referring to an article, here, in which we learn that the State of New York is plugging the “hole” created by lost federal revenue for Catholic Charities (from you really, the taxpayer). 

He wants to know why does a private group like this need taxpayer dollars to hold on to employees they don’t need.

In 2014, Syracuse’s Holy Trinity Catholic Church became a mosque and these Catholic Charities refugee pushers don’t even get what is happening to them.   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/03/30/syracuse-refugee-group-buys-catholic-church-will-be-converted-to-a-mosque/

The mainstream media rarely makes the connection clear to the average taxpaying citizen reading a story like this that there is a direct relationship between the number of refugees being brought in and Catholic Charities of Onondaga County (this one and many others throughout the US) budget.

Their payments from the feds are based on how many refugees the agency places. It is a per refugee head basis and so big families bring in bigger bucks to CC (sorry for the zillionith time I’ve repeated that!). 

When the President reduced the number of refugees being admitted to the US, it caused all these federal contractors to see their budgets shrink.

Below is a screenshot of Mr. Checksfield’s letter.

But, do not miss the nearly 30 comments, virtually all negative toward Catholic Charities, that have been sent in to Syracuse.com.

They want to be ready to go when Trump is gone!

I took notice in the original article that the primary reason the State of NY was sending money to keep the resettlement agencies afloat is that they all expect the Trump reductions in number to end and they want to go right back (as quickly as possible!) to doing what they did for the 35 years before Trump came along!

That is why you must push the Trump Administration to reform the law before 2020—so that the refugee industry can’t go back to the same old flawed model!

Good for Mr. Checksfield for asking this question and good for Syracuse.com  for publishing it! (And the comments, here).

More of you should do this—-write letters to the editor when you see a warm and fuzzy refugee story that bashes the President!  Educate your fellow citizens!

  1. When I sent a letter to the White House I also told President Trump about the Muslim taxi drivers
    attacking women passengers an raping them I explained this the is exact thing they are doing in the EU where no one is doing a damn thing to put a stop to it. This is just one of the reasons that I ask him to not bring any more of the Muslims to this country help them in either their country or a country next door to their country it would be much cheaper. Millions of dollars cheaper on the taxpayer. We have to wise up!

    Holy good God! First a photo of a Catholic church to become a mosque (encouragement, or what?)
    Then a picture of What? Refugees? All but three waving the flag of their “old” homeland? That they brought WITH them?
    Finally a picture of two women, the one on the left with an arrogant expression.
    Sorry, but I have very little (if any) pity for these people pouring into America when they should be fixing their own damn country!

  3. Syracuse aleady has high rates of homelessness, poverty, and unemployment for its local citizens. It is unfair for both the refugees and local poor to settle anybody into Syracuse. Catholic Charities has an awful track record with regards to the services it pretends to provide. I doubt that the current political situation has anything to do with the decline of refugees coming into Syracuse. The reality is that the refugees who already arrived have warned their families not to come because Catholic Charities does nothing for nobody and that there are no jobs in Syracuse. Catholic Charities already has a ton of money, they do not really need to ask for extra money either.

    In St Cloud the criminal paper won’t print anything from us. Only PRO-REFUGEE/IMMIGRATION. They hate free speech.

    IF New Yorkers are stupid enough to let this happen, they should at least require strings attached. The $$$ HAS TO BE USED for refugees, and NOT exorbitant salaries/benefits for the people at the top of this SUPPOSEDLY CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION, and IT cannot BE USED for ACTIVISM.

    But, of course, they won’t do any of this. Why you would turn over impoverished and vulnerable children to an organization that sexually molests them and HIDES IT FOR YEARS, without any accountabiLity is beyond me though.
