Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society heavily involved in Midterm election politics

Posted 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. 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 […]

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society launches election year campaign

Posted on September 29, 2018

They call it…. VOTE FOR WELCOME! As a non-profit federal grantee they need to be especially careful about lobbying and getting in to electoral political activities.  See here. If the Refugee Admissions Program survives, the most important reform we need is a prohibition (in the law itself) on federal refugee contractors***, like HIAS, from political […]

Pennsylvania: Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society rep says Trump low admission numbers could end the program

Posted on August 23, 2018

Cathryn Miller-Wilson said this to the Philadelphia Inquirer yesterday referring to a rumored ceiling number for FY19 of 25,000: “Those kind of numbers are the elimination of the refugee resettlement program.”   I think HIAS overstates the case, and I want all of my readers to know that although low numbers might push some of […]

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society: Send $$$ so we can continue to fight the Prez and work with Islamic Relief

Posted on June 29, 2018

I told you again about the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) here the other day. They are one of nine federal contractors receiving millions of your tax dollars annually, AND they were a lead organization suing the Trump Administration over the travel ban. Raising private money is a good thing, but…. Why should we be required to […]

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society urges followers to take to the streets in wake of Supreme Court decision

Posted on June 27, 2018

The Trump Administration has been an unrelenting 17 month assault against America’s values as a nation welcoming of immigrants and refugees. (Mark Hetfield, CEO of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society)   You all know what happened in the Supreme Court yesterday.  In a nutshell, the court affirmed that the President of the US has the […]

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society lawyers “save” Somali from deportation

Posted on January 5, 2018

In a touching tale, HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), bragged on its blog yesterday that, in a Baltimore, MD court, it saved Somali illegal alien Yaasir from deportation back to Somalia.       The tale goes from one touching scene to another, in Yaasir’s 22-years, all written (and told by Yaasir) to elicit sympathy […]

Help! Send money right now, says Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society!

Posted on December 28, 2017

It is “an unprecedented crisis!” Mark Hetfield, CEO HIAS I suspect all of the nine federal refugee resettlement contractors*** are doing this—end-of-year appeals for money for 2018.  I just happened to see HIAS’s appeal yesterday. Because fewer refugees (paying clients) are expected to enter the US in the coming year, and because (if it’s true) the […]

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society sues Trump Administration again

Posted on November 15, 2017

They apparently want to make it clear to the Muslim world that they are the good people.     Here is what Mark Hetfield CEO of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (aka HIAS) said in an e-mail yesterday. (Emphasis is mine) The Trump Administration shows no signs of backing off their policies against refugees, so […]

Hetfield of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society thinks Hawaiian judge just opened floodgates

Posted on July 14, 2017

Update:  By the end of the day we are now over the President’s ceiling by 194, and I think it would only be fair if HIAS set up an office in Hawaii and resettle all of those over the ceiling in that state! After all, Hawaii isn’t getting its fair share—only 3 so far in […]

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society: Tell Congress we need more $$$ for refugees

Posted on May 25, 2017

As I said yesterday, although Trump’s proposed FY18 Budget contains (we are told) enough money for as many as 50,000 refugees for FY18, the refugee resettlement contractors are pushing Congress for more. The President has the power to set the refugee admissions ceiling for the upcoming year (in “consultation” with Congress), and that is normally […]
