President-elect to visit Ohio State terror attack victims today

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 8, 2016

Following the attack, Trump tweeted that Artan, a Somali living legally in the U.S., should not have been in the country.

News outlets this morning, including the local Columbus newspaper, are reporting that Donald Trump will visit the OSU campus today to meet with victims and first responders to last week’s car/knife rampage by a Somali refugee.

Scene of the terror attack at OSU on November 28, 2016

If you are a new reader, see one of our earlier reports on the Islamic terror attack here.

From the Columbus Dispatch:

President-elect Donald Trump will travel to Columbus on Thursday to meet privately with some victims of the attack at Ohio State University that left 13 people injured before the assailant was fatally shot by a campus police officer.

The event, which also will include a separate meeting with police and paramedics who responded to the possible terrorist attack on the Ohio State campus on Nov. 28, will be closed to the public and news media, said a source with knowledge of the visit.

[….]

Authorities have said OSU student Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 18, inspired by American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, a leader of al Qaeda in Yemen who was killed by an American drone strike, but still are investigating claims by ISIS that Artan was its “soldier.” Artan rammed a campus crowd with his car and then slashed others with a knife before he was killed. All of the victims survived.

Following the attack, Trump tweeted that Artan, a Somali living legally in the U.S., should not have been in the country.

On Thursday at the first stop of “USA Thank You Tour” in Cincinnati, Trump said “stupid politicians” and lax immigration policies underlay the attack at Ohio State.

When Donald Trump’s team gets in place and they contemplate cutting off immigration from countries that hate us, they need to include Somalis wherever in the world we are picking them up! Few, if any, come from Somalia itself!

Somalis are entering the US at the highest rate ever! See Breitbart here!

And, Jeff Sessions’ Justice Department should take this case and completely unravel it to expose the Somali pipeline to America no matter where in the world it is coming from.

And, while he is at it, Trump must tell the MEATPACKING giants to hire Americans and pay a decent wage!

Are NGO “rescue” ships in the Mediterranean helping to destabilize Europe?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 7, 2016

Yes, say investigators whose information is pretty persuasive. They say Americans are involved too.

Invasion of Europe news…..

phoenix-rescue-in-2015

Rescued off the coast of Libya in 2015 with the help of MOAS’ Phoenix. http://mashable.com/2015/08/05/migrants-mediterranean-boat-disaster/#pJaJI9ynZkqA

 

A few days ago, an American reader sent me a story about the supposedly non-profit groups that have furnished rescue ships operating in the Mediterranean.  I didn’t have time to look at it carefully (and I knew I had previously written about one such ship, here), but when a longtime reader from Malta sent me more links yesterday, I spent a little time just now going over reports.

The allegations are that the ‘non-profit’ ships may be working in concert with human traffickers in Libya and that they are not simply picking up (mostly economic) migrants in European waters, but meeting the Africans and Middle Easterners who want to get to Europe in the waters right off Libya.  In such locations any foundering vessel would logically be returned to the African coast, the shortest distance by far, but are intercepted and taken all the way to Italy.

(By the way, any mention of Libya gets my blood boiling because we know it is now a gateway for invaders of Europe thanks to Hillary Clinton—a story I followed from its outset!)

Here is one story on the allegations against these ‘non-profits.’

The Way:

For two months, GEFIRA using marinetraffic.com have been monitoring the movements of ships owned by a couple of NGOs, and, using data from data.unhcr.org.

Gerira [GEFIRA?] have kept track of the daily arrivals of African immigrants in Italy. It turned out we have witnessed a massive scam of illegal human trafficting.

NGOs, smugglers, the mafia in cahoots with the European Union have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities.

Human traffickers contact the Italian coast guard in advance to receive support and to pick up their dubious cargo. NGO ships are directed to the “rescue spot” even as those to be rescued are still in Libya.

The 15 ships GEFIRA observed are owned or leased by NGOs have regularly been seen to leave their Italian ports, head south, stop short of reaching the Libyan coast, pick up their human cargo, and take course back 260 miles to Italy even though the port of Zarzis in Tunis is just 60 mile away from the rescue spot.

The organizations in question are: MOAS, Jugend Rettet, Stichting Bootvluchting, Médecins Sans Frontières, Save the Children, Proactiva Open Arms, Sea-Watch.org, Sea-Eye and Life Boat.

Go here to see a video explanation of this investigation.

And, then learn more about the  Louisiana-born owner of one ship we told you about in February 2015 (photo at right). The last line of the newest story is this:

One cannot help but wonder whether the MOAS people are honest saviours or they are on a mission to destabilise Europe even further.

From GEFIRA.org:

MOAS stands for Migrant Offshore Aid Station. It is a Malta-based non-governmental organisation, which set itself the task of patrolling the Mediterranean and rescuing people in high seas, lifting them up from dinghies, rafts and boats onto the Phoenix, the MOAS-owned trawler, a vessel complete with drones for scanning the waters, and ferrying migrants from places several miles off the Libyan shore to Sicily. The organisation is run by Chris Catrambone (35) and his wife Regina.

Continue reading here.

And, by the way, in February of this year, we reported that the ‘Phoenix’ was headed to Asia to rescue Muslim Rohingya, but I don’t know if that ever happened. (I’m always surprised by how much information is here at RRW that I’ve forgotten about!)

Even if the ‘rescue’ ships are doing nothing illegal, their very presence simply encourages more migrants to attempt sea crossings.

Minnesota, no surprise highest Somali resettlement state in nation

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 5, 2016

For those of you in cities and states contemplating whether to ‘welcome’ refugees, remember this:  Once you have set up a program, there is no stopping it. The federal government looks to see if your community has a particular ethnic group growing and you then will get more of them. (Obviously, even if you have had a terror attack as St. Cloud did!)

st-cloud-mall-attack

Minnesota CAIR director worried that the September Islamic terror attack could cause blowback against Somalis in St. Cloud. Not to be deterred, the Obama State Department and Lutheran Social Services are still pouring Somalis in to St. Cloud. Photo: http://www.mprnews.org/story/2016/09/23/st-cloud-mall-stabbing-update

LOL! The feds want the refugees to be with their own folks, their own kind of people (never mind that that seems a bit racist to me!).

Since I was  having fun with numbers, see my previous post about how Somalis are being resettled at the fastest rate in US history, I thought I would have a look at where the 334 Somalis were resettled in Minnesota in the last 2 months.  So, here we go (Wrapsnet.org). Top two in red.

 

Burnsville (3)

Chaska (1)

Fairbault (1) typo?

Faribault (29)

Inver Grove Heights (6)

Mankato (4)

Marshall (11)

Minneapolis (164)

North Mankato (2)

Owatonna (2)

Rochester (15)

St. Cloud (57)

St. Joseph (1)

St. Paul (26)

Waite Park (1)

Willmar (11)

Many Somalis find work in meatpacking plants (which are luring them to the state!). When I made my summer swing to visit many meatpacking/manufacturing towns overrun with refugees, I stopped at a rest stop near Rochester, MN and I was shocked to see Muslim women praying on the lawn of the rest stop in the middle of lovely farm country stretching from Wisconsin to Minnesota.  I said to myself, I guess I am in Minnesota and my East Coast neighbors would not believe this!

One more thing, this story floating around over the last few days says Minnesota will get 2,500 total refugees this year (we assume they are using the standard fiscal year as we do).   At the rate of Somalis we are reporting here, that means that just over 2,000 of the 2,500 would be Somali. (If Trump doesn’t step in on January 21 and cut off the flow from Islamic terror-linked countries.)

By the way, most of our Somali refugees come through Kenya so I hope Trump’s people aren’t blindsided by that! Somalis are Somalis wherever in the world we find them.

***Update*** I just remembered this post I wrote in 2015 when I looked back for ten years at all the towns in Minnesota seeded with Somalis, click here.

First two months of FY2017, Somali ‘refugees’ entering US at highest rate ever!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 5, 2016

rpcLogoSmall [Converted]I mentioned this fact a few days ago here when I analyzed the first 6 weeks of FY17 (it began on October 1, 2016), but now the data is in for the first two full months.

You can’t make this up!

In light of the many Somalis who have been arrested and convicted on terrorism charges (here is the most recent case) and in light of two highly publicized cases of Somali youths we cared for on our taxpayer dime attempting to kill Americans since September in St. Cloud, MN and in Columbus, OH, we are admitting the highest weekly average of Somalis to the US that we have ever done in the last 30 years!

Using the data available to the public at Wrapsnet.org (Refugee Processing Center), we searched for the number of Somalis (virtually all Somalis are Muslims) admitted between October 1, 2016 and December 1, 2016 and this is what we found:

2,598 were admitted in the last two months. (More Somalis than Syrians, here).

And check out the top ten states which ‘welcomed’ them. (40 states got some number of Somalis, but large numbers will head to Minnesota and Ohio as soon as their initial resettlement funds run out.)

Top Ten states for Somali resettlement in the first two months of this fiscal year:

Minnesota (334)

New York (283)

Kentucky (169) It is new for KY to be anywhere near the top for resettlement, where are you Rand Paul?

Ohio (158)

Arizona (146)

Missouri (136)

Texas (133)

Washington (113)

Colorado (97)

Pennsylvania (89)

You might think the Obama Administration is working overtime to get this many in here before you know what!

By the way, I heard some mainstream news commentator say the other day that Washington, DC was third behind Minnesota and Ohio for Somali population.  It just isn’t so, there may be some in the DC area, but DC gets almost no refugees.

Note to the Donald Trump transition team: You can’t solve the problem if you only restrict entry to some Middle Eastern countries!  Although we pick up most of the Somalis from camps in Africa, we are admitting Somalis who have “made their way” to far flung corners of the world, including to Europe!

How many white refugees did we take from South Africa last month?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 29, 2016

I used to have more time to write about South Africa—the LOL! Rainbow Nation—but haven’t recently.

rainbow-nation

This artwork came from an article entitled, ’17 Interesting Facts about South Africa.’ Don’t miss number 16! By the way, is that yellow person in the middle supposed to be the white people of South Africa? http://www.goweirdfacts.com/17-interesting-facts-about-south-africa.html/2

However, in light of what I have been writing about today: the FACT that we are picking up Somalis all over the world and bringing them to Anytown, USA, I want to mention this again.

(You can see my archive on South Africa by clicking here.)

The joke is that although South Africa is still being touted as the Rainbow Nation that welcomes all races and religions, it is not happy with its fellow black Africans and most particularly the Somalis.  So guess what? We take them! We are bringing them as ‘refugees’ to America from South Africa.  (see the processing country map I’ve been displaying for the last couple of days below).

Just like Australia’s unwanted illegal aliens, why are South Africa’s illegal aliens our problem?

This bit of information is buried in a story about Buffalo, NY and the many languages spoken in the school system there.  Remember ‘welcoming’ communities you have a huge expense coming when you set up a resettlement site, but what interested me more than the language issue (discussed frequently on these pages) was this brief mention near the end of the article.

Thanks to all who sent the Buffalo News story:

The father is from Somalia. He fled his country and made the risky journey to South Africa. That’s where he met his eventual wife and where his daughters were born, but where the family did not have permanent residency. [What! We thought everyone was welcome in SA?—ed]

So the United Nations sent them to us! So much for the welcoming Rainbow Nation!

See the map for just the month of October 2016.  How many of the 151 who arrived in the US in October are persecuted white South Africans? (Gasp! Politically incorrect question alert!)

I’ve asked this other very sensible question in the past: Once whites are in the minority will the tables be turned and will the UN promote the resettlement of whites into black majority nations (to add some diversity!)?  Hmmmmm?

 

screenshot-71

Who are the 151 ‘refugees’ we admitted from the SAFE country of South Africa last month? I’ll bet the largest numbers are Somalis!

Sigh! So another Somali refugee goes on a rampage inspired by his ‘faith’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 29, 2016

Update: More from Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart, here.

Yesterday when I first heard the news that a knife and a car were involved in the Ohio State rampage, I knew it was going to turn out to be an Islam-inspired terror attack.  I had other duties yesterday afternoon and figured you didn’t need me to report since there would be so many springing to action and cable news would eventually report on who the perp was.

With the St. Cloud mall stabbing fresh on our minds, it was not an earth shattering revelation when we learned later in the day that the jihadist was a Somali refugee.  And, it is actually very funny this morning to hear CNN report that there is still no declaration that the Somali Muslim was inspired by his ‘faith.’

( For new readers, see a post we wrote here (at the time of the St. Cloud Somali terror attack) listing the numbers of Somalis admitted to the US in 3 decades.   See this post from 2008 where I first began to chronicle the Somali numbers.  Some of that data came from Wrapsnet.org (now unavailable). Earlier numbers came from a slow process of analyzing ORR annual reports to Congress.)

And, if I am not too excited by this latest news from Ohio maybe it’s because I wrote my first post about Somali refugee “youths” (many of whom we raised since small children with our tax dollars) turning to the ‘religion of peace’ to become jihadists 8 years ago!  (Check this out, I wrote that first post on November 26th, 2008—almost to the day 8 years ago.)

So tell me (everyone yakking about vetting!), how are we going to screen the Muslim kids who become radicalized in your town?

BTW, we have written a lot about Columbus, OH, a Somali resettlement city, second only to Little Mogadishu (Minneapolis), see our Columbus archive.

Now to yesterday’s attack in Ohio:

Here is Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily on the Somali Islamic terror attack yesterday.  If the news is true about his family’s sojourn in Pakistan then it confirms a point I have been trying to make for a long time—we are picking up Somalis and other Muslim refugees around the world and thus ‘vetting’ is almost impossible!

The Somali refugee who stabbed Ohio State University students with a butcher knife Monday praised a well-known al-Qaida terrorist on his Facebook page minutes before his attack, yet authorities say they are not ready to assign a motive.

Police shot and killed the man as he was attacking students outside a science building. Eleven people were transported to area hospitals with various injuries, according to the Columbus, Ohio, fire department.

The dead attacker was reportedly an Ohio State student – an 18-year-old Somali refugee named Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who left Somalia with his family for Pakistan in 2007 and obtained a green card to enter the U.S. in 2014. He reportedly lived near campus, CNBC News reported.

[….]

On his Facebook page, Artan posted a rant about attacks on Muslims.

Appearing three minutes before the beginning of the rampage, the post reads: “I can’t take it anymore. America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that.”

The post also praised Anwar Al-Awlaki, a radical American-born al-Qaida cleric, describing him as a “hero.”

Continue reading here.

Let’s talk about this Pakistan connection (assuming that information is correct)!

We know using data that is available at Wraps.net that we are processing in to the US ‘refugees’ from Pakistan, but a large number  are not Pakistanis.  And, I have been for years trying to make the point that when a supposed legitimate asylum seeker (like a Somali who claims to be somehow persecuted) arrives in a country such as Malta, Malaysia, Australia, or Pakistan that those so-called ‘refugees’ are not our problem! Those are safe countries where the migrant should be asking for asylum. (Unless, of course, if he or she is a Christian arriving in Pakistan!)

We have seen the most clear case of how outrageous a process this is with the Australia deal just in the last few weeks.

Think about this, in the case of Pakistan, a Muslim country, why are they sending us Somalis and why are we accepting them?  You know they are being processed in to your towns through the UNHCR office in Pakistan. Can we count on an honest screening process there, apparently not, or we wouldn’t have the Ohio State slasher attack yesterday.

Go to the map (it is only for last month) I posted on Sunday that is available at Wraps.net.  It is a processing country map and see that in the month of October we took in 97 ‘refugees’ through Pakistan.

Then you go to this map which lists the ‘nationalities’ admitted in October and you can see that 60 of the 97 were Pakistanis (I sure hope they were all Christians!).  Who are the 37 others (who told the UN they would be persecuted if sent home) that we admitted via the UN through Pakistan in October?  Somalis like this Ohio slashers family? You can bet some are Afghans, but who knows?  We don’t.  The US State Department knows, but the public doesn’t.

Where is Congress?

The point I am making is that while we yak about screening Syrians, all over the world we are taking illegal aliens (with virtually no paperwork) who arrived in some safe (for them) country and transform them in to ‘refugees’ to be placed in your towns and supported on your taxpayers’ dime!

Endnote: I am planning a post soon to counter the lies being told by refugee contractors arriving in new potential resettlement sites where they tell the community that no refugees in America have been involved (or have planned) Islamic terror attacks.

Minnesota trial of Somali refugee jihadist wannabes ignored!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 20, 2016

As Brenda Walker reports here at VDARE, the trial of nine Somali refugees who plotted to leave the US to join ISIS is wrapping up and long sentences are being handed down.  (Take note all of you refugee advocates who say there is no connection between the Refugee Admissions Program and Islamic terrorism.)

minnesota-isis

What are these Somali refugees costing us?

Here is Walker:

The Trump-obsessed press has paid little attention to important news like a major terror trial wrapping up in Minneapolis: nine Somali men were sentenced last week in Minnesota for their jihad terror crimes. But the liberal media ignores Muslims terror trials in America no matter what else is going on.

For more continue reading here.

Think about this and consider taking the challenge!

First, think about the fact that your tax dollars raised these budding jihadists. You paid for their food stamps, their medical care, their schooling, subsidized their housing, and you might even have fixed their teeth, so I ask what are you getting for your investment?

More expenses! 

Just imagine what these trials cost the taxpayers of Minnesota and America! And, more importantly, since several of them are getting 30 years plus behind bars, imagine what that costs us!

I don’t even know why we bother stopping these punks when they try to leave the US. They are cannon fodder for ISIS, might as well let them go.

What value are they for us as they languish behind bars and are fed special halal diets for decades? What will they contribute when they come out at say 55 years old? Do we put them on welfare again?

I’m wondering if when Jeff Sessions becomes Attorney General, can he stop this madness?  Just let them go and take away their US passports!

The challenge!

And, maybe to help Sessions and law enforcement generally reconsider whatever policy it is that we follow by stopping the jihadist wannabes from leaving the country, someone should do an economic analysis of what each of these Somali convicted Al Shabaab/ISIS sympathizers cost us.  I bet one of you could do this!  And, remember there are more than nine of these mostly Somali refugees who have attempted to leave the country since about 2007.

See if you can figure out what they cost the American taxpayer!

And, one more thing! I know it would never happen, but it’s fun to fantasize! I would love to see the resettlement agencies (the contractors), which failed to assimilate their refugees, financially responsible when one of their darlings breaks the law!

German ministry: send illegal migrant Africans back immediately to send message, discourage more!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 6, 2016

…Blame Hillary for African invasion of Europe!

Where are you Tony Abbott (former Australian Prime Minister)?  Gee, about time that the dim bulbs in Europe are beginning to see the sense of a your suggestion from the spring of 2015—turn back the boats!  But, it strikes me that such a suggestion now is about a million migrants too late!

Here is the story at Reuters:

The German Interior Ministry wants to stop migrants ever reaching Europe’s Mediterranean coast by picking them up at sea and returning them to Africa, the Welt am Sonntag newspaper reported on Sunday.

In this photo made available Thursday, April 23, 2015, migrants crowd and inflatable dinghy as rescue vassel " Denaro " (not in picture) of the Italian Coast Guard approaches them, off the Libyan coast, in the Mediterranean Sea, Wednesday, April 22, 2015. European Union leaders gathering for an extraordinary summit are facing calls from all sides to take emergency action to save lives in the Mediterranean, where hundreds of migrants are missing and feared drowned in recent days. (Alessandro Di Meo/ANSA via AP Photo) ITALY OUT

Rescuing African men in the Mediterranean Sea in 2015. Why are rescuers wearing protective suits and gloves? You can guess. (Alessandro Di Meo/ANSA via AP Photo)

In what would be a huge shift for a country with one of the most generous asylum policies, the ministry says the European Union should adopt an Australian-style system under which migrants intercepted at sea are sent for processing at camps in third countries.

“The elimination of the prospect of reaching the European coast could convince migrants to avoid embarking on the life-threatening and costly journey in the first place,” the paper quoted a ministry spokeswoman as saying.

And so why would these African nations want the hordes parked in their country making trouble? (Wishful thinking on the part of Germany!)

The ministry’s proposal calls for migrants picked up in the Mediterranean – most of whom set off from conflict-torn Libya – to be sent to Tunisia, Egypt or other north African states to apply for asylum from there.

If their asylum applications are accepted, the migrants could then be transported safely to Europe.

If they turned only a few boats back to the African coast, or we bused back across our southern border a few busloads of illegal aliens immediately upon their arrival in Texas or Arizona, advertised it far and wide, the flow would slow immediately!

Our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive is here.

Blame Hillary!

Do not forget that it was Hillary Clinton who was responsible (Obama had to be persuaded) for destabilizing Libya and creating this migration route to Europe through Libya.

See one of our many posts on Hillary’s role in helping to create the European migration crisis by clicking here. Col. Gaddafi controlled Libya’s borders, now no one does!

Note when you visit that post that the longer video of Hillary gloating over the 2011 death of Col. Gaddafi has been removed. Here is the short version:

North Carolina (again): How your tax dollars support ethnic activist groups

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 4, 2016

The timing of this $500,000 grant announcement from the Office of Refugee Resettlement to a local non-profit group for refugees from the DR Congo is so interesting—days before North Carolina could choose the next President of the US. (See yesterday’s post about North Carolina, here.)

raleigh-immigrant-community-inc

Raleigh Immigrant Community Inc. Motto: Unity, Justice, Work (for special people, but not Americans). Community organizers have received a $500,000 federal grant. http://ricinc.org/

It has been awhile since I’ve written about ETHNIC COMMUNITY SELF-HELP GRANTS.

Think about this, besides the fact that the federal grant encourages ethnic separation and non-assimilation by being geared, in this case in NC, to refugees from the DR Congo, your money is used to give special refugees (make work!) jobs and if this one operates as others have in the past, it encourages political involvement for their ethnic group.

I look at these non-profits as little ACORNS (remember ACORN).  They purport to be helping the poor (in special ethnic groups) and then they help them vote and become politically active for ‘their community.’  If you have ethnic community organizers working where you live, find out if they are being funded by you.

There is absolutely no need for this grant program from the Office of Refugee Resettlement. And, I wonder under what legal authority the feds have to pass out your money in this discriminatory fashion.

They already hire the nine major contractors and their hundreds of subcontractors to get the refugees settled. There is no need for spin-off non-profits being run with your money! Imagine the firestorm (!) if we wanted federal bucks (community organizing money) to organize a European-American ethnic support group! Or, how about North Carolina Trailer Park Redneck Residents for Justice!  (I love rednecks and ‘deplorables’, why not organizing bucks for them/us?)

Before I get to this one from North Carolina, see this list of $millions in grant money for special groups of people (no wonder African Americans notice that immigrants are getting more stuff than they are).

Here is the news about the Raleigh Immigrant Community (LOL! timing of grant announcement is amusing!) from the Daily Tarheel:

The Raleigh Immigrant Community (RIC) started a program to help immigrants in the Triangle area after receiving a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement.

The RIC began as a community adjustment support group for refugees from the Democratic Republic of the Congo that met through the UNC Refugee Mental Health and Wellness Initiative. They started meeting in January 2015 and became an official nonprofit in April 2016.

The RIC received the ethnic community self-help grant from the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement. The grant will give them half a million dollars over three years.  [get that federal money out now before a possible Trump Admin comes in!—ed]

For more go to our category Ethnic Community Based Organizations.’ They were previously called ECBOs. I haven’t written much about them in recent years, but when you hear about the over a billion in tax dollars that ORR wants to run their programs, know that grants like this (for special people) are why it is so costly.

Wisconsin Refugee Agency may have scammed taxpayers big time!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 9, 2016

Call home Paul Ryan!  This outrageous “savings” program is one of many, you as Speaker of the House, need to investigate!

paul-ryan-beard

Speaker Paul Ryan has shown zero interest in reforming the Refugee Act of 1980. I wonder could we suggest Janesville (his home town) as one of the many new resettlement sites in America!

I’m guessing this is not an isolated case.

For new readers, Speaker Paul Ryan has not allowed any serious Refugee Act reform bills (he allowed one sham bill because he knew the Senate wouldn’t pass it anyway) to move forward in the House during his tenure as speaker and for that matter neither has Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

These so-called ‘Individual Development Accounts’ are an abomination and potentially rife with fraud. When taxpayers learn about them (we have mentioned them on many occasions) they are shocked.

The federal government actually gives grants to non-profit refugee agencies to administer a program which allows refugees to get matching funds when they save money for four things (Education, business, home or car).

How would you like to get such a deal:

For every dollar a refugee saves, he/she is matched a dollar out of  the US Treasury (your pocket)!

But, again the program is managed by a resettlement contractor (with no accountability to the taxpayer) like this one in Milwaukee.  Financial audits/investigations of the contractors are rare.

From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel  (hat tip: Joanne):

A Milwaukee nonprofit that offers after-school programs for refugee children and other assistance for refugees is under investigation for alleged misuse of federal funds.

The Pan-African Community Association gave money to at least 32 people who were not eligible to receive funds, investigators with the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement have found, according to records obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel under the Freedom of Information Act.

ecdc-logo

The Ethiopian Community Development Council is one of nine federally funded refugee contractors that could not exist without your tax dollars. Go to this link to see if they have an office near you: http://www.ecdcus.org/Where_We_Work/affiliates.html

In addition, the organization violated terms of federal grants by spending more than 35% of its annual budget on administrative costs and paying individuals in the form of money orders, rather than paying vendors directly for items purchased, the reports state.

The association received more than $440,000 in federal funds from 2012 to 2015 to help refugees from Africa and around the world buy cars and houses and to open businesses in Milwaukee. Using Individual Development Accounts, the program was designed to offer matching grants to refugees who, for example, saved at least $2,000 of their own money to go toward the purchase of a car or $4,000 toward a house.

[….]

The Pan-African Community Association is contracted through the “preferred communities program,” with the Ethiopian Community Development Council. The council, in turn, is one of about 10 [nine actually—ed] national organizations — mostly faith-based — that the federal government contracts with to provide services to refugees.

Continue here for more of the gory details and denials.

I haven’t written about “preferred communities” since here in 2014. But, you might have a look and see if your city is one of them. They don’t change often.

Call Congress!

Time to listen to ‘Mom for Trump’ (I am not going to quit trying to persuade you that right now there is only one place to put pressure to slow the flow of third worlders to your towns—Congress!):

Ann, could you tell all your readers on a daily basis to call our useless Congress @ 202 224 3121 and have them say DEFUND REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM. I call daily and if enough of us do so, we can make a difference.

If you have problems getting a live person on the phone when you call Washington (like I did when I called my Congressman John Delaney (D-MD) the other day), then find out the locations and phone numbers of their district and state offices and call those.  When you have someone on the phone on Tuesday (they surely won’t be there on Monday), in addition to telling them to defund the program, find out where your member or Senator will be in the coming weeks and be there!  Ask (in person, in front of an audience) if he or she will Defund the Refugee Resettlement Program when they get back to DC after the election.
