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.  […]

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 […]

The dark underbelly of refugee resettlement in the US—churches neglecting refugees, working with questionable landlords

Posted on June 14, 2018

When I first began writing this blog in July 2007, one of the issues that attracted my attention was the puzzling decision by the Virginia Council of Churches, working for major resettlement contractor Church World Service, to place refugees in one of the worst buildings in the worst section of Hagerstown, MD. But, here we […]

Trump refugee admissions slowdown shows US refugee program built on budgetary quicksand

Posted on June 6, 2018

The structure of the US Refugee Admissions Program as designed by then Senator Ted Kennedy (with his sidekick Joe Biden) and signed in to law by Jimmy Carter in March 1980 is crumbling (crumpling, whatever) and I want to know— Where is Congress? The original concept—non-profit groups being paid by the head to place refugees—is […]

Under Trump, Muslim refugees from Burma (Rohingya) are numero uno

Posted on June 3, 2018

I told you the other day that we had a slight increase in the number of refugees entering the US in the month of May.  The number is still way below what the refugee contractors*** need to assure that their federally funded budgets are flush with your involuntary contributions via Washington. Today I checked Wrapsnet […]
