International Rescue Committee says US businesses need more low wage workers

I’ve never thought this was a good argument to be pushed by the supposed ‘humanitarians’ receiving millions from the US taxpayer to place refugees in hundreds of US towns and cities, but they are doing it in the age of Trump.

Suggestion for President Trump: save millions by cutting funding for the International Rescue Committee

Everyday I start my day at around 5 a.m. with CNN.  I recommend that you all consider doing that (not necessarily at that hour!) because it is so informative to see how they spin the news each and every day. Kind of fires me up to get to work! This morning CNN showed a clip … Continue reading Suggestion for President Trump: save millions by cutting funding for the International Rescue Committee

Major US refugee contractor, International Rescue Committee, embroiled in corruption probe

Update May 13th: Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily has much more on this probe. Gee, I wonder if this is why its CEO David Miliband (a Brit!) has his toe back in UK political waters (here two days ago!). Is he about to jump ship and go home?

Where did we get that information?  From a new … Continue reading International Rescue Committee wants Obama ceiling raised on FY15 refugees to accommodate Syrians

International Rescue Committee study: refugees like cash better than services

They did not study refugees resettled in the US, but I’ll bet they would opt for cold hard cash over stuff too. Former British Foreign Secretary David Miliband, the CEO of one of our top nine resettlement contractors, the International Rescue Committee, who himself likes cash (and is paid nearly a half million dollars as … Continue reading International Rescue Committee study: refugees like cash better than services
