US refugee resettlement contractors surviving for now on “leftover” federal dollars

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2018

We reported recently that the nine federally-funded non-profit groups that have monopolized all resettlement in the US for the last decade (some of them for three decades) will see their numbers diminished as the President continues reducing refugee resettlement.

By becoming almost completely dependent on federal dollars, they built a house of cards.

Miliband in Manhattan

Love it when I see stories about the IRC crying over its loss of federal boodle. I can tell readers again that its CEO, British national David Miliband, pulls in a cool nearly $700,000 annual salary.  Here in Manhattan where they are headquartered. Is this socialist sharing his good fortune with employees who are let go?

In this post two days ago we reported that two so-called VOLAGS would likely not receive contracts.  I expect the reporter got it wrong when he suggested as many as seven could be booted off the federal gravy train.

Another story designed to tug on your heartstrings, this time from San Diego, wasn’t really worth posting except for a few paragraphs deep within the story.

From The San Diego Union-Tribune:

With fewer refugees coming, resettlement agencies may be forced to close

 

The International Rescue Committee was able to reunite at least one person — a Rohingya refugee fleeing Myanmar — with family here, according to Duvin [Donna Duvin, executive director of the International Rescue Committee in San Diego.—ed]

The agency also began receiving refugees being held by Australia on Nauru Island. [This was a bit of useful news. We wondered where they might be going—ed]

The process, based on an agreement the U.S. made with Australia before Trump took office, has been slow, Duvin said, but she was happy that some were making it through.

Resettlement agencies like Jewish Family Service and International Rescue Committee have had to restructure their programs because of the lower numbers of arrivals. When staff positions fell vacant, they often went unfilled. Those who remained shifted to providing longer-term services to refugees who had already arrived, and agencies became increasingly reliant on private donations to fund their work.  [Well, it is about time.  It was supposed to be a 50/50 partnership but as you see below here*** it has become a program almost exclusively funded by US taxpayers!—ed]

Waiting for the ax to fall!

While resettlement agencies prepare for the possibility of even fewer arrivals in fiscal 2019, they still don’t know how much money they will receive to do their work or whether they will be allowed to stay open. Since the Trump administration is still working out details about the 2019 resettlement efforts, it has not yet released its budget for the program for this year.

Money machine

Leftover money! Leftover money! Your leftover money! 

Local resettlement agencies are operating through December with leftover money from the fiscal 2018 budget because the number of resettled refugees didn’t reach the 45,000 cap. They have been told that some of the nine agencies nationwide may be asked to close their doors once the 2019 budget is finalized.

A State Department official confirmed that the administration is expecting to fund a smaller number of resettlement agencies.

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

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!

  1. Actually, the resettlement agencies are expanding in Southern California. In Los Angeles, the refugee resettlement agencies are getting money from private sources. Here is a link to an article about the Goldhirsch Foundation sending $200,000 to Miry’s List, a resettlement agency dedicated to bringing refugees to the Northeast neighborhoods of Los Angeles:

    Southern California is rapidly becoming a hub of Middle Eastern refugee resettlement. Even if Middle East refugees are non-Muslim and are actually Christian, they are bringing tensions into communities such as Glendale in the Northeast area of Los Angeles County:

    The students even posted the threats to “shoot all Non-Armenians.”

    Ann – I am sooooo glad to see the funding will be diminishing!!!!! Depleting/freezing those funds was exactly what I wanted to see happen ‘cause I really think the dems are using those contractors to expedite this latest invasion. Hooray! Jan Charls

  5. Looks like some Buffalo area businesses are coming in to assist with the whining.
