Cap for refugee admissions to the US for FY19 finalized—30,000

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 9, 2018

I missed this last week and so did most everyone as official Washington was in turmoil over the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.

The President signed the Memorandum on Thursday. 

We had already reported on the expected 30,000 cap, but up until the President’s signature  on the the determination we still weren’t sure how many refugees could enter the US in the fiscal year we bean just last Monday.

See the Memorandum from the President, here.

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society heavily involved in Midterm election politics

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 9, 2018

A week or so ago I told you about how the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) has launched its “Vote for Welcome” campaign.

Have you seen this poster where you live?

If you are a new reader you may not know that HIAS is one of nine federal refugee contractors*** paid by the head to place refugees in your towns and cities.

They are also politically involved in ‘welcoming’ migrants of all sorts to America (for instance, they played a major role in attempting to influence Senators during the ‘Gang of Eight’ deliberations a few years ago).

Investigative reporter Jim Simpson writing at the Capital Research Center says that HIAS has received $186 MILLION from the US Treasury in the last ten years.  See here.

If President Trump continues to admit fewer numbers of refugees their budgetary bottom-line will suffer.

In my opinion, there is nothing more maddening than an election-year political campaign being run by a non-profit group heavily funded by us—-US taxpayers!

Thanks to reader Brenda for alerting me to their #MissingNeighbors campaign and poster.

From their website:

This is a screenshot so the links are not hot.  If you want to see their toolkit, go here:      https://www.hias.org/sites/default/files/hias_2018_elections_toolkit.pdf

You too should be educating candidates! 

 

***Below are the nine federal refugee resettlement contractors.

Faithful readers are probably sick of seeing this list almost every day, but a friend once told me that people need to see something seven times before it completely sinks in, so it seems to me that 70, or even 700 isn’t too much!

And, besides I have new readers every day.

Here is HIAS protesting the Trump Administration in New York in February 2017.           https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/02/14/breitbart-federally-funded-refugee-resettlement-contractor-hias-organized-ny-rally-against-trump/

The present US Refugee Admissions Program will never be reformed if the system of paying the contractors by the head stays in place and the contractors are permitted to act as Leftwing political agitation groups, community organizers and lobbyists paid on our dime!  

And, to add insult to injury they pretend it is all about ‘humanitarianism.’

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)!  And, get them registered to vote eventually!

From my most recent accounting, here.  However, please see that Nayla Rush at the Center for Immigration Studies has done an update of their income, as has James Simpson at the Capital Research Center!
