Good luck getting data on refugee welfare usage when Congress can’t get it!

Posted on August 15, 2017

There have been many efforts in recent years to press local and state governments to cough up data on the cost of refugees placed in communities—most recently in North Dakota and Minnesota. This Congressional Research Memo to Congress from 2015 gives you a glimpse in to why they aren’t able to do it (assuming they […]

Local and state taxpayers do contribute to refugee welfare

Posted on February 29, 2016

Over and over again we hear from political leaders and grassroots organizers looking to bring refugees into new (unsuspecting) communities that this is a federal program funded by the feds.  (LOL! as if Washington has an orchard of money trees!) However, this short model letter-to-the-editor in Tennessee quickly dispels the notion that the resettlement of […]

Will President Trump restrict welfare use by refugees too?

Posted on June 26, 2017

When President Trump announced in Iowa last week that he planned to ask Congress for a tightening of restrictions on welfare use by immigrants—barring their use of welfare for 5 years—I wondered if he would wander in to the minefield of refugee welfare use. Readers here know that refugees use social services/welfare immediately (within weeks) […]

Maine: Former Iranian refugee who died for ISIS was on welfare in US

Posted on August 19, 2016

That is the headline, but what has the Leftwing media done in Maine?  They are attacking the governor because he released the information thus not respecting the Islamic terrorist’s privacy in death!  Ahhhh! By the way Governor LePage is one of only a few governors who have had the guts to criticize the UN/US State […]

Refugee kids get more welfare benefits than American poor kids

Posted on April 25, 2016

Thanks to all who sent this information from Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner: America loves kids, but Uncle Sam has a favorite: children of refugees. Among recipients of food stamps, welfare cash and Social Security payments, refugee children receive more in taxpayer-funded aid than children of citizens, according to a new report on federal […]

122,395 Iraqis have been admitted to US as refugees since 2008, 62% are Muslims, 90% on welfare

Posted on September 21, 2015

As I listened to some pundits on TV last night, I was struck by the fact that they appeared to have no idea that the Refugee Admissions Program of the UN/US State Department has been bringing in tens of thousands of refugees every year for years. We told you the other day that the Somali […]

Senator Jeff Sessions: 90% of Middle Eastern refugees get some form of welfare

Posted on September 11, 2015

Yesterday we told you about the Center for Immigration Studies analysis of data indicating that legal immigrants (which include refugees) are using our social safety net at a higher rate than native born Americans, now we learn that Middle Eastern refugees are using welfare assistance at an even higher level than other legal immigrants. From […]

CATO immigration “specialist:” Bring Syrian refugees in, but cut off their welfare

Posted on June 21, 2015

If any of you are Libertarians and think the CATO Institute is the last word on libertarian good sense, you may not know that crazy CATO is for a free flow of immigrants around the world.   Here Alex Nowrasteh,  CATO immigration specialist, makes an emotional pitch to bring in Syrian refugees, but remembering that […]

Rand Paul: Why are we bringing in all these refugees (Iraqis in particular) and putting them on welfare?

Posted on April 7, 2015

I know you are saying that isn’t the Senator Rand Paul you know now, but it was the Senator Paul in the wake of the discovery of Iraqi refugee terrorists found in his home town and convicted in Kentucky just a few years ago. As a matter of fact, I was thrilled!  He was the […]

Breitbart reports on high welfare use by refugees from latest annual report; let Rep. Trey Gowdy know!

Posted on April 3, 2015

I am so excited! A major news outlet is actually reporting on those often very tardy (and seemingly boring) annual reports to Congress from the Office of Refugee Resettlement! Probably for the last few years only a handful of people in the whole country were looking at a report that I doubt anyone in Congress […]
