Posted on June 23, 2008

If you have about an hour and enough interest listen to this radio program (Your Call) broadcast from San Francisco for World Refugee Day last week.   I found it very informative to hear three refugees, a representative of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and Livonia (whoop-de-do) Limon of the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, discuss […]

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society can’t find enough housing in San Fran for gay ‘refugees’ (from South Africa)

Posted on July 30, 2015

Ho hum!  So we are bringing refugees from the highly touted welcoming-to-all “Rainbow Nation” of South Africa, dropping them off in San Francisco and now whining about how there isn’t enough housing for them.  Maybe one of the well-paid staffers at the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) might welcome this gay refugee to their home!

Supreme Court could announce fate of Trump ‘travel ban’ and refugee ceiling reduction at any time

Posted on June 24, 2017

According to AP at ABC News, here, they have likely already decided and an announcement will come next week.     There are two major issues at stake (maybe more than two, but two for me!).  The first is whether the President has the authority to ban, for a limited time, all entry to the […]

Ninth Circuit allows migrants from terror hotspots to resume entering the country

Posted on February 5, 2017

It is confusing and hopefully later there will be more clarity, but reportedly, overnight, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ordered both sides (the Washington State court that stopped Trump’s temporary halt of certain migrants and the US Justice Department) by tomorrow to prepare briefs supporting their arguments. So, if those bureaucrats working in […]

Posted on November 13, 2016

This is one more in my continuing update and review of the financial positions of the nine major federal refugee resettlement contractors.

Refugee resettlement industry panicked; fears funds will be slashed

Posted on November 10, 2016

And, if funds are slashed, the numbers to be resettled in your towns and cities will be slashed because as I have told you ad nauseum the resettlement contractors have little money of their own.  They need your tax dollars or they wither and die. “If [Trump] decides to cut the state funds or federal […]

Dallas: Turning red states blue, one city at a time

Posted on March 15, 2016

There is nothing surprising in this story at Breitbart about Dallas, Texas “progressive” mayor Mike Rawlings. But, please take note of the the big global bank—JP Morgan Chase—underwriting this series of discussions called ‘City Makers Summit’ where they are attempting to sell the idea that only migrants can revitalize cities. I’ve been begging for years […]
