Refugee Council USA reports that refugee numbers are way down, yes, we know

Posted on December 30, 2017

In just a couple of days I will be reporting on the number of refugees admitted to the US in the first three months of the fiscal year which began on October 1, 2017. The refugee arrival numbers as news hook! But, the lobbying arm of the refugee industry—RCUSA—is tracking the numbers every two weeks […]

Refugee Council USA: lobbying arm for refugee contractors on the move

Posted on May 22, 2015

In our previous post we reported that the Refugee Council USA (RCUSA) apparently played a role in getting those 14 Senators signed on to a letter urging Obama to open the flood gates to 65,000 Syrian refugees before his term in office expires! I’ve mentioned RCUSA over the years, but honestly may have underestimated the […]

Refugee Council USA busy lobbying on S.744

Posted on May 21, 2013

Update:  More on yesterday’s amendments—come and get it!  Welfare for one and all (for the children)! If you have been following RRW for the last few weeks, you know that S. 744 (The Gang of Eight plus Grover bill) isn’t just about amnesty for 11 million plus illegal aliens in the US,  it’s also about […]

Refugee Council USA: Waahhh! Still not enough money for refugees

Posted on February 3, 2010

No surprise here that the Refugee INDUSTRY represented by a consortium of groups calling themselves the Refugee Council USA (for lobbying purposes) is wailing that it still doesn’t have enough money for all the refugees (and offices and staffs and big salaries) needed for the record number of refugees being resettled in the US this year in […]

Part III: Refugee Council USA tells Obama we need to resettle 45,000 Iraqis this year

Posted on February 17, 2009

I’ve been telling you about the briefing book prepared by the Refugee Council USA (RCUSA) for Obama and the 111th Congress.   (See Part I and Part II) Today I’m writing about the section (page 6) entitled:  Iraqi Humanitarian and Displacement Crisis.  Right off the bat, I’m ticked off.  They define the problem with this first sentence:  “Millions […]

Part II: Refugee Council USA wants to dramatically increase refugee numbers

Posted on February 14, 2009

Yesterday, I told you about the Refugee Council USA’s “Recommendations and Actions for the Obama Administration and the 111th Congress.”     Today, in Part II, Im reporting on this preposterous proposal: they want to double the number of refugees we take in 2010 and yet we aren’t able to find work for the ones we are bringing now.  […]

Part I: Refugee Council USA has recommendations for Obama and Congress

Posted on February 13, 2009

The Refugee Council USA is a consortium of groups involved in the refugee industry.   Recently I came across their briefing book for the new Administration and the 111th Congress.  You will find it here. There are many recommendations and so I’ll write about this in a couple of posts.    Since we have been discussing the […]

How more of your money flows out of Washington to non-profit groups that ‘help’ immigrants and refugees

Posted on October 31, 2018

The grant program is known as the ‘Ethnic Community Self-help Program’ run out of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS). At one point I followed their activities closely and began a file on it, see here, but too much breaking news pushed the subject to the back burner. First, as you know, nine federal […]

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

Posted 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. In this […]

Episcopal Migration Ministries might be dropped from federal refugee program

Posted on October 21, 2018

But so might seven other refugee contractors? Before you get too excited…. …..there must be an error in this report, but I am posting it just to see if we can get the truth shaken loose. When I first started writing this blog in 2007 there were ten federal resettlement contractors that monopolized all refugee […]
