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.  […]

There are many recommendations and so I’ll write about this in a couple of posts.    Since we have been discussing the […]

Posted on October 7, 2018

In November of last year, information came to us from a confidential source about Chobani Yogurt CEO Hamdi Ulukaya’s personal foundation, The Tent Foundation, contracting with Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (one of nine federally funded resettlement agencies) to produce a guide for businesses to help them find refugee labor. Here is just a bit […]

Trump has not yet signed refugee determination, therefore zero refugees being admitted to the US right now

Posted on October 4, 2018

“Whatever that number is, it will absolutely be driven principally by the capacity of my agency and the law enforcement, security, and vetting practices.”   (Francis Cissna, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS))   Granted we are only 4 days into the month of October so things could change tomorrow or the next […]

State Department finally posts map where refugees are resettled in US

Posted on October 4, 2018

  Admittedly I haven’t checked for a few months, so I’m not sure when this map was made public, but here it is! In order to fit it on these pages, I opted for the smaller version, but if you go here you can see it in an easier-to-read size. See the legend which tells […]
