Montana response to refugee plan includes dire warning

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 7, 2015

Last week we told you that a group in Montana was proposing that the state begin to resettle refugees in significant numbers.  The only state that has no refugee program at all is Wyoming, but over the years Montana has resettled a handful (LOL! sort of like refugee advocate Joe Biden’s Delaware).  However, that could all change as writer Stephen Maly suggested in an opinion piece in Helena’s Independent Record.

Now comes a response by Montana resident Paul Nachman*** which I’m posting here for several reasons.  First, his excellent piece could be a model for others working in ‘pockets of resistance’ and it’s a reminder to use the local media as much as possible (not everyone is on the internet!).  Secondly, he makes some very good points in a thoughtful way, and last but not least, he raises a specter of something more and more experts are beginning to notice—in the coming years we will have a glut of low-skilled workers and no jobs.  So what then will happen to all of the third world immigrants we have imported ostensibly to do the jobs Americans won’t do?  Nachman asks that question.

After you read the whole essay, you might want to send a letter or comment to the paper yourself.  Help Montanans decide if they should “change” the character of their state by “welcoming” refugees from places like Somalia, Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

From the Independent Record:

Stephen Maly’s op-ed “Exploring the possibility of welcoming Syrian refugees to Helena” (June 25) is heartfelt. But it’s also a nonstarter because most of what Mr. Maly wrote has negligible overlap with the current realities of refugee resettlement in the United States.

These realities usually startle people new to the subject. One pictures carefully selected refugees shepherded to new lives in America by doting non-governmental organizations rooted in religion (e.g. Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service) or civic concern (e.g. International Rescue Committee). Surely such groups assist their charges in finding housing and employment and in assimilating to American life, while also providing financial support until “their” refugees attain self-sufficiency? And surely they fund this support and the salaries of their professional resettlement workers using contributions gathered by “passing the plate” in their churches or by attracting private philanthropy?

Well, no. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees does the selecting, pressing their selectees on national bureaucracies such as the U.S. State Department. In turn, the State Department — working with LIRS, IRC and seven other NGOs — identifies American cities and towns for concentrated resettlement of the refugees, typically paying minimal attention to the capabilities and resources of these receiving communities. Indeed, the communities often learn about their new arrivals after the fact.

The sponsoring NGOs’ refugee work is funded almost entirely by the federal taxpayer, not from resources they’re raised themselves, so they’re best viewed as federal contractors. And the contractors’ obligations to any particular refugees end after a few months, no matter how inadequately their charges have assimilated during that brief span.

Continue reading here.

Now this is the part that I found alarming because I have been hearing this warning from several sources lately.

Mr. Maly’s worry about systemic worker shortages is probably misplaced, anyway. The cover story in the July/August Atlantic is “A World Without Work.” Author Derek Thompson argues that galloping computer-driven automation is en route to destroying, on net, tens of millions of American jobs. If so, the issue for our society will be the distribution of sustenance to those forced out of the workforce, without engendering the resentment of those still working. We certainly won’t need to import workers from abroad.

There is more, please continue here.

Please send a comment to the Independent Record especially if you have information about how the refugee program is problematic where you live.

California No Borders activists call Illegal aliens “refugees” in Napa Valley; want Pelosi to send federal cash

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 7, 2015

Editor:  Subscribers might have just gotten this post in early draft form since my computer is giving me fits this morning! Sorry about that!

This little story in the Napa Valley Register (St. Helena Star) caught my eye since I was just in the beautiful Napa Valley last week.

This is what the No Borders Left and their friends in the Catholic Church are trying to do everywhere—-re-classify illegal aliens by calling them “refugees.”

The word “refugee” has a very important distinction that activists like the Jesuit priest and his friends in this story want to erase and that is that a legitimate refugee must be able to prove that he/she is being personally persecuted for one of several reasons including race, religion, or political view and is thus in danger if returned to their home country.  This might seem like a little point to make, but believe me it is a big deal issue for the Left.

Illegal workers in Napa Valley are economic migrants, not refugees.  But, the Left (the Religious Left too) sure would like them designated as refugees so that they will be eligible for all forms of social services and will be given permission to work and eventually to vote here.

From the Napa Valley Register (St. Helena Star) (emphasis is mine):

According to the UN High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR), 51 million men, women, and children have been displaced from their homes due to famine, disease, or economic hardship.

Some of those are in the Napa Valley.

St. Helenans Martin and Rita Bennett invited Father Peter Balleis of the Jesuit Refugee Service to St. Helena on World Refugee Day, June 20, to speak to small groups of people.

Martin Bennett said his focus has become one of advocacy for those who are displaced, the so-called “illegals,” undocumented migrants who come looking for work in the restaurants and the vineyard fields. “The Napa Valley is unparalleled in its generosity to causes,” he said. “But these refugees are here, in the valley, seeking employment.”  [Again, they are NOT refugees.—ed]

And even though they are not necessarily visible or perceived as refugees, he said, their plight needs to be addressed. “We can go where they are, find out what they need, and try to help,” he said. “And we can write letters to the State Department, to Nancy Pelosi, and to Mike Thompson, to encourage them to increase the budget for addressing the issues of refugees.”

I wondered if Pelosi ‘welcomes refugees’ to her California vineyard and found this 2014 story and photo.

Wyoming Republican Governor Matt Mead still angling to bring in refugees! Why???

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 6, 2015

He says he just wants a civil discussion to get the facts.  Indeed that is all we have ever asked for over the last 8 years—the facts!  All of the facts!

All of the facts to be laid out in public—the good, the bad and the ugly.

And, that is exactly what the UN/US State Department and their resettlement contractors avoid wherever they begin a new resettlement program.  Why?  Because when the average American citizen learns all of the facts they reject this program!  Secrecy has been its watchword for over three decades!

Casper Star Tribune: Albert Einstein was a refugee.

See this story at the Casper Star Tribune where Gov. Mead, we are told, has asked the ‘Humanities Council’ to add discussions about the federal government’s refugee program to its forum agenda.

LOL! Mead, who suggested here, that RRW is racist now says he wants a factual, respectful debate! 

I can’t wait to see who he invites to address the negative aspects of resettling third worlders in Wyoming, the only state with no official resettlement program.

Imagine a sitting governor taking time to call-out a blogger thousands of miles away! What is he afraid of?

For all of our many many posts on the controversy that saw the issue become a re-election concern for Mead, click here.  I haven’t the time or patience to go back through it all. But, will address a couple of the “facts” in this news story.

I wish only one thing—I wish that Republican Gov. Matt Mead would be honest and tell everyone why it is so important for him to open Wyoming to impoverished refugees from Syria, Somalia, Iraq, Burma, Afghanistan and from myriad other conflict zones around the world.  Why???

Now to the Star Tribune:

* On the phrase “refugee camps.”  I don’t know where that came from and when I first saw it, I thought it was an unfortunate choice of words because refugees will not live in camps.  They will live, at first, in a couple of US State Department/contractor chosen cities in Wyoming and in mostly taxpayer-subsidized housing.

Esar Met

RRW: Esar Met was a refugee in Utah

* Regarding this statement by the reporter:

Opponents to resettlement have said refugees can spread HIV, Ebola, tuberculosis and advocate Sharia law.

Refugees are admitted to the US with HIV and tuberculosis.  Come on lazy reporters—look it up!  As for Ebola, the Liberian man who died in Texas with Ebola was visiting others who had come to the US as refugees, but no mention was ever made of his immigration status (that I know of). So, so far there hasn’t been a case of Ebola in a refugee.

And, yes, advocates of Sharia law are plentiful in the refugee flow, one only need to look to Minnesota, Ohio and California for cases of refugees being prosecuted for aiding Islamic terror groups around the world.

* Regarding the discussion about secondary migrants (refugees who have moved into Wyoming from elsewhere):

Refugees are currently living in Wyoming, Mead said.

“Most of them (are) I think the term is secondary refugees,” he said. “In other words, they’ve relocated into another state and now they are coming to Wyoming. But because we have no plan in place, we don’t know what their numbers are, what are the resources that they’re using.

Colorado rapist

RRW: Jasim Ramadon was a refugee in Colorado.

First, secondary migrants are like any other legal immigrant in America who chooses to move—we do allow free movement in this country (thankfully)!  However, those who choose to move from their primary place of resettlement, don’t need any special programs just for them.  They can find work and/or access welfare without someone (a resettlement contractor) holding their hands just as any other class of legal immigrant must do.

Governor Mead does not need the Humanities Council or a special resettlement contractor to figure out what “resources they’re using.”  He is the governor after all, he needs only to direct offices within the state government to figure out how much welfare the ‘secondary migrants’ are using, how many kids are in the schools, what health services they are using, etc.  The federal government is not going to send Wyoming more money for them, but state taxpayers might like to know the answer!

And, one more thing on the ‘secondary migrants.’  We learned here that Somalis were moving in from Colorado so as to obtain housing vouchers that they could take back to Colorado.  Maybe the Governor should find out how many of those refugees were ripping off poor and disabled Wyomingites who need that housing!

*  Then this is downright BS!

The federal Office of Refugee Resettlement and the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees “pay 100 percent of the costs of refugee resettlement for many years. It’s not like we’re going to get stuck with an unfunded mandate,” he said, noting Albert Einstein was a refugee.

Please, please get your facts!  I have written probably a hundred posts here at RRW explaining that local and state taxpayers are picking up a large chunk of the tab for all of this (not to mention the fact that even if some money comes from the feds, it still comes via Wyoming/US taxpayers or China! We don’t grow money on trees in Washington!).   Who do you think is paying for: educating the refugee children, providing interpreter services, paying for the criminal justice system, the fire and rescue service, or a large portion of the medical screening at your local health department?

*  And, now I am really steamed—what biased c***—“Albert Einstein was a refugee.” 

I can play that game too.  Utah child rapist and murderer “Esar Met was a refugee” (she died in excruciating pain).  And, so was Jasim Ramadon an Iraqi gang rapist in Colorado.  Oh, and did you know about the two Iraqi refugee terrorists convicted in Kentucky?   How about Somali, Abdirahmaan Muhumed, a refugee to whom we gave a good life and who then went off and died for ISIS leaving 9 children and several wives for US taxpayers to support?

Who do you think paid for the criminal trials of these refugees—state and local taxpayers!  Who is paying for their prison terms?  You guessed it!  You!

I’ll bet a million bucks (if I had it!) that Einstein will be mentioned at the Humanities forum, but not a word about Met, Ramadon or Muhumed will cross any lips.

My message to the good folks of Wyoming—get your facts!  All of the facts!

Canada rejecting “refugees” from Malta

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 6, 2015

Why is this so interesting to us?

African-migrants-boat-to-Europe-620x412

If you think the migrant boats arriving on Malta don’t affect you, think again! We are taking some of Malta’s illegal aliens off their hands.

….because Canada is apparently attempting to make the point that international refugee law requires legitimate asylum seekers to seek asylum in the first safe country they enter.

The island nation of Malta is safe and therefore offers a “durable solution” to those seeking asylum.  Although we have sympathy for Malta and the Maltese people, there is no reason for a western nation like Canada or the US to resettle refugees from a safe country.

Here is the Independent:

A number of refugees in Malta who have been sponsored to move to Canada are being prevented from emigrating since Canada’s immigration authorities consider their stay in Malta to be a “durable solution” to their situation, Canadian media is reporting.

Remember readers that ever since the Bush Administration, the US State Department has been illegally in our view scooping up hundreds of those mostly African (mostly Somali!) illegal alien boat people who manage to get across the Mediterranean to Malta, transform them into refugees and move them to your towns and cities.  See most recently here.

And, here, we learned that some of the Malta boat people went to South Carolina.

We have dozens and dozens of posts on this outrage. Go here for our complete Malta archive.  And, here, for our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series.

HIAS targeting Toledo with Muslim refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 6, 2015

We alerted readers, in February 2014, that Toledo was being targeted as a new “welcoming” community for refugees and in particular refugees from the Middle East.  See our story!  The original ABC News story is gone (it’s a good thing I snipped some of it).  Pay particular attention to the flag graphic behind the TV news anchor.

American Flag with Allahu Akbar

Screen shot from the 2014 announcement that Toledo will take Iraqi refugees. Arabic writing on the flag: Allahu Akbar! Did ABC know what they were doing when they prepared this graphic?

Now, here is the update on Toledo thanks to a new blog called Welcoming America Watch Midwest (story posted at Creeping Sharia).  I was so excited to see this news—-not that Toledo is being colonized, but the news that someone else is writing a blog on refugees!   Here is a bit of the post, but please go read the rest of it!

I was about to start a post on the parent group of Global Detroit and all the other Welcoming initiatives when it came to our attention that Afghan and Syrian refugees are being resettled in Toledo, Ohio. We have known for awhile that the address of an apartment complex’s office called Kenwood Gardens is listed on the State Department refugee resettlement subcontractor list as address for the subcontractor US Together.

[….]

This neighborhood appears to have everything a family could need to function. At the link to US Together–Toledo’s Facebook, there’s photos of another apartment for Afghan refugees. There’s a mosque, shopping center with grocery, large apartment complex, refugee resettlement contractor stationed at the apartment office building–and to top it all off, a public charter school for the kids that has an Arabic theme (the schools–elementary and middle–moved from their original Secor Rd. location into an old synagogue adjacent to the apartments). And all this is within walking distance of a huge employer, the University of Toledo (not on the above map).

Continue reading here.

Guess what!  The subcontractor US Together is an affiliate of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society which we know is busy resettling Muslims into American towns and cities.

This is from HIAS list of “partners:”

US Together (Columbus, Cleveland, and Toledo) – 614-310-3200

It was only 10 days ago or so we learned that HIAS thinks that the US should resettle 200,000 mostly Muslim Syrians!  Can you say death wish!

Howie Carr: Afghan Army deserter gets asylum in US, let the welfare goodies flow….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 5, 2015

This is a quick post to update a story we first mentioned here.  Afgahan military officer, Arash, was originally denied asylum, but won an appeal and can now stay here, live off the US taxpayer, and eventually vote.

Carr: Arash now gets the “full Tsarnaev!”

Read all about Afghan Army deserter, Jan Arash, below in an opinion piece by Boston radio talk show host Howie Carr.  Here come the welfare goodies!  Hat tip: Joanne.

Boston Herald:

Afghan army deserter Jan Arash hit the jackpot last week — he’s been granted “asylum” in the U.S., which means he can now go on welfare, bring his entire family over from their Third World hellhole and put them on the dole, too, forever.

“He’s overjoyed,” said his lawyer.

And why wouldn’t he be?

This is what millions of Third Worlders aspire to — a permanent vacation at U.S. taxpayer expense. Call it the Tsarnaev lottery, only it’s not a lottery because there’s no element of chance. The illegals always win — and America loses.

You may recall that this yellow traitor to his country was one of three Afghan soldiers who came to Camp Edwards on Cape Cod last year, purportedly to study emergency planning. They quickly fled to Zachary’s Pub, a local strip club in Mashpee. It didn’t take more than one or two lap dances to decide to remain here in the Great Satan forever.

How you gonna keep ’em down on the jihad once they’ve seen Zachary’s? And once they find out that … everything’s on Uncle Sam, including the “back rubs”?

They deserted and took a cab to Niagara Falls — $1,600! Then they demanded asylum. One was allowed to stay in Canada, which is Canada’s problem. The other two, including Arash, were jailed after they claimed asylum on the grounds that they were afraid of the Taliban.

Continue reading, it gets better!

For new readers, the asylum process is also a part of the Refugee Act of 1980.  The difference between refugees and asylum seekers is that we fly the mostly UN-chosen refugees in and asylum seekers get in here on their own steam (overstay a Visa, enter illegally, or, like Arash, desert) and then claim asylum saying they will be persecuted if sent home.  Once granted asylum, the asylum seeker becomes a full-fledged refugee and eligible for myriad social services gratis the US taxpayer.

By the way, the vast majority of those flowing across US borders are economic migrants who are pretending to be legitimate asylum seekers.  The same holds true for Europe’s invaders.

St. Cloud residents hammer Rep. Emmer on Refugee Program; Somali teen murders African American

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 5, 2015

Emmer responds in anger (not about the murdered teen, he didn’t like being questioned) according to this news at the Examiner entitled ‘Tom Emmer’s public meltdown.’

By the way, the thin-skinned Rep. Tom Emmer is the Republican who won the seat formerly held by Rep. Michele Bachmann.  It sure looks like the 6th District of Minnesota will miss Bachmann as we learned recently that Emmer has joined forces with Rep. Keith Ellison to create a Somalia Caucus in Congress!

tom-emmer

Rep. Tom Emmer. With Republicans like these……

Here is Gary Gross writing at the Examiner.  St. Cloud residents want to know what the cost is to the local taxpayer as Lutheran Social Services and the UN/US State Department continue to send refugees to the city that has a growing ‘pocket of resistance’ to the colonization plan.

A big crowd turned out for Congressman Tom Emmer’s townhall meeting Wednesday night. It wasn’t a good night for Emmer because he let his temper get the better of him early in the event.

The chief point of contention was over the refugee resettlement program. When citizens asked for a moratorium on the program until after an economic impact statement had been done, Congressman Emmer asked why anyone would have a problem with people in the United States legally. When an unidentified member of the audience said that refugees were draining St. Cloud’s resources, Emmer responded by saying that he’d seen the city of St. Cloud’s budget and that it looked fine. At that point, several people booed.

The main complaint is that refugees are depleting the school district’s funding. They’re allegedly also using health care programs, too. It was noted that school budgets aren’t part of St. Cloud’s operating budget. That’s shown in the school district’s budget. Also, the health programs that refugees are using are administered by Stearns County, not the City of St. Cloud.

Looking at St. Cloud’s city operating budget wouldn’t tell Congressman Emmer anything about the refugee resettlement’s financial impact on St. Cloud.

At another point, Emmer got upset about the possibility of Syrian refugees heading to St. Cloud, calling that possibility the “Syrian myth.” He later said that he’d checked with the State Department, who said that there wasn’t a chance of Syrian refugees coming to Minnesota.

Continue reading here.

He might be right about the number of Syrians that might be sent to Minnesota.  I’m thinking the US State Department could actually have enough sense to not send more Muslims to Minnesota.    Although if they get their wished-for 65,000 in the next 18 months, every state will be fair game.

Also from St. Cloud: Not a word in the national news about Somali refugee stabbing to death African American in St. Cloud

From Fox9.com (hat tip: Gary).  A story posted the same day as Emmer’s meltdown story:

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KMSP) –

20-year-old Davee Duvose lost his life early Friday morning after being stabbed by a 16-year-old at a St. Cloud house party, and he was just trying to protect his friend Chelsea Siegle.

“I was nonstop crying,” Siegle said. “I didn’t sleep for three days after that. He took care of everybody else before himself.”

The St. Cloud student was killed after he stepped in to protect Siegle from a violent stranger. Siegle, her girlfriends, and Duvose were at house party in St. Cloud when she was approached.

“One of the dudes came up to me and was asking me what’s your name what’s your number, you’re cute,” Siegle said. “And I said ‘no I’m good. Can you just leave me alone?’ And he was like, ‘you’re a bitch.’ I was like ‘excuse me?’”

16-year-old Muhiyadim Mohamed Hassan randomly jumped into the brawl with a kitchen knife after Duvose began protecting Siegle. She said Hassan just “came out of the blue and stabbed Davee.”

More here and link to ‘Go Fund Me’ for Duvose’s funeral.   Will Obama speak at Duvose’s funeral?  Or, will Rep. Keith Ellison?  Emmer?

We paid to resettle Mohamed’s family and now taxpayers get to pay for a trial and incarceration—what a deal!

African population booming in Minnesota; sending millions of dollars back to Africa

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 5, 2015

This is one of those feel-good stories about how Minnesota is such a wonderful state with its ever-expanding African migrant population.  If you are a Minnesotan it’s probably a good thing to read.

Somali women MN

Minnesota women protesting the sentencing of two Somali women on terror funding charges. None of these glowing economic studies include the cost to taxpayers for the criminal justice system. Photo: http://www.komonews.com/news/national/2-Minnesota-women-sentenced-in-Somali-terror-case-207813961.html

However, I caution readers on the numbers.  The TwinCities Pioneer Press reports that there are about 85,000 Somalis in the whole US and that just isn’t so…the number is much larger.  We painstakingly researched the numbers for just those entering the US through the refugee program and came up with over 100,000 in the last 25 years and that doesn’t include a couple generations now of producing children.  See this early post.

You will see mention in the story that when census takers come around, the Africans are less than truthful about how many are living at the location.

From TwinCities Pioneer Press:

Of the 50 states, Minnesota has the ninth-largest population of African immigrants. About 60 percent come from East African nations such as Somalia and Ethiopia, and 25 percent from West African nations such as Nigeria and Liberia. The rest come from elsewhere in Africa.

[….]

Of more than 85,700 Somalis officially known to reside in the U.S., nearly a third are thought to reside in Minnesota.

[….]

Corrie, a professor at Concordia University in St. Paul, believes the state’s African population produces $14 million in philanthropy within Minnesota each year, on top of $150 million in annual remittances to countries in Africa.

I don’t know why this is considered a good thing—sending money out of America that will never benefit our economy!

Some of the ‘smart’ people on our side should get to work doing studies that will show the real picture including how much welfare is consumed by the immigrants, how costly is their medical care and education, the cost to the criminal justice system, and include an analysis of where the money goes!

I’m starting to think that glowing reports about how immigrants benefit the local economy include the money flowing into a state like Minnesota from the federal tax payer via welfare programs.  Someone needs to find out!

By the way, I don’t see any mention in the Pioneer Press story about the fact that half of the state’s Somalis live in poverty, here.

Add one more to the list of countries whose nationals can stay in the US forever—Nepal

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 3, 2015

The Temporary Protected Status (TPS) category, a legal immigration program, is anything but temporary.  The Obama Administration has just added Nepal to its list of countries whose citizens can stay as temporary refugees, work (and probably vote!) here forever because the temporary designation is simply extended every time it expires.

I say this repeatedly, but when your friends (or your Member of Congress) says legal immigration is good, remember TPS and know that they don’t know what they are talking about.

“Temporary” refugees from Nepal will send US dollars back to rebuild the country after the April earthquake. Photo: http://time.com/3928685/nepal-earthquake-recovery-donors-food-rice/

The gist of it is that we would be considered bad people if we sent nationals back to their home country in the middle of a crisis, but the problem is that ten years or more after the crisis is long over, we simply extend their stay as they wait for the Obama/Republican amnesty.  The temporary designation is a sham!

From NBC News:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has granted Nepal Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under the Immigration and Nationality Act following the devastation of the massive 7.8-magnitude earthquake of April 25 and subsequent earthquakes and aftershocks which are estimated to have killed over 5,200 people, injured more than 12,500 people, and displaced approximately 2.8 million people.

This designation will allow approximately 10,000 to 25,000 Nepali nationals currently in the United States to stay and to work until December 2016, even if their visas expire, without threat of being detained or deported.

They will be permitted to send money out of the country (called remittances) which is a drain on OUR economy!  In 2012, $123,273,000,000 left the US via remittances to the third world.  The next time you see one of those studies being promoted by the likes of ‘Welcoming America’ about how immigrants boost the local economy, ask if they included remittances leaving America in their study!

In addition to safety concerns, being authorized to work in the United States will allow Nepali nationals to work and send money back to Nepal to help the country rebuild.

Other countries which have been granted TPS in the past due to ongoing armed conflict, environmental disasters, and other extraordinary conditions include Haiti, Honduras, El Salvador, and Syria.

More at NBC here.

By the way, I heard recently that there are up to 25,000 Syrians in the US eligible to stay under TPS.

For a laugh, check this out:   Hondurans were given TPS in 1999!  Salvadorans in 2001 and Haitians in 2011.   So much for TEMPORARY!

There is an application in for Yemen too!

PA Rep. Barletta worried about Syrian refugees, tells local audience

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 3, 2015

I have a ton of catching up to do after being out in California for a week.  So, let’s see if I can post on a bunch of topics and not say too much!

Pennsylvania Republican Congressman Lou Barletta chose to talk about the threat posed by Syrian refugees entering the US to a local audience in Hazelton, PA.  Barletta is on the House Homeland Security Committee that heard testimony, here, the week before last.

Rep Lou Barletta

Here is some of what he had to say from the Times-Leader:

HAZLETON — The city’s native son returned Wednesday to talk about threats at home.

U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, said he enjoys coming home and he got to renew friendships with about 50 members of the Hazleton Rotary Club at Genetti’s on Route 309.

[….]

The issue of illegal immigration brought Barletta to the national stage. When he was mayor of Hazleton, Barletta felt his city faced a serious financial dilemma because of illegal immigrants residing in the city but not paying taxes.

Barletta contended that his city’s population doubled while its tax revenue stayed the same.

[….]

Barletta said he has expressed concern about Syrian refugees being admitted to the U.S. At a recent House Homeland Security Committee hearing he quizzed experts on the extent of U.S. intelligence gathering capabilities while the State Department considers admitting up to 2,000 Syrian refugees in the coming year.  [For new readers, there is a push on to admit 65,000 Syrians before Obama leaves office—ed]

At that hearing, Barletta noted that Syria is a hotbed for terrorism, and he questioned witnesses at the hearing regarding America’s ability to properly vet those under consideration for refugee status and relocation to the the United States.

Barletta said the United States has to take a serious stand on the issue. He also said any U.S. citizen who goes to Syria to train with ISIS should not be allowed back into the country.

“They are traitors,” he said. “And traitors should not be allowed to come back into this country.”

By the way, most of those going to train with ISIS are immigrants we ‘welcomed’ to America at one point in time.

There is more.

I’m posting this to remind readers that your Member of Congress is home in the district for the 4th of July holiday and it is a good time to discuss refugee resettlement with them.  Every little way you can throw a shoe in the machinery of this government is useful!

Pennsylvania is rapidly becoming a leading refugee resettlement state.
