Muslims to Europe: One day all of this is ours

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 20, 2017

It is demography stupid!  And, they get it. So why don’t European leaders do something about it?

Gatestone Institute posted another story with the statistics yesterday, you can read it here.

We can see what the problem is, so why the hesitancy in finding a solution?

Hungarian PM Viktor Orban: We must solve our own demographic problems.

What I want to know is aren’t there smart people in governments that see it coming and are encouraging Europeans (and the Japanese in their case) to have more children.

Find tax incentives, find more ways to make it easier for Europeans and for the Japanese to support more children in large families, create media campaigns/TV shows about the joy of large families—make it cool to have babies!

And, expose the big money globalists (and chamber of commerce types) who see numbers of people in terms of consumers of their products.  Maybe someone needs to be thinking in terms of  smaller economic growth and how to get used to that for awhile as Europeans kick-start their production of their own babies.

And, of course, most of all stop the importation of Middle Easterners and Africans who will be outproducing those of European heritage. Let them stabilize their populations in their own parts of the world.

***Update***

It begins!  A few minutes ago I posted this story on twitter with a photo of some cute babies.  Look what twitter did. Since when is RRW “sensitive content?” And, who decided?

HIAS to hold rally for refugees on the Hill September 14th

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 19, 2017

HIAS is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, one of nine major federal refugee resettlement contractors*** working for the US State Department.

Their goal at the rally is to push for 75,000 refugees in the FY18 Presidential “determination” Trump will be submitting to Congress at about that time.  I don’t know what good a little rally will do, since I suspect the Trump Administration is close to choosing the CEILING number already.

Mark Hetfield, HIAS CEO, makes a cool $358,718 (doing well by doing good) and has been organizing against Trump from the beginning. HIAS led the pro-Muslim lawsuit against the so-called ‘travel ban.’ See my huge archive on HIAS by going here: https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/?s=HIAS

This time last year, groups, including HIAS, were pushing Obama to set a CEILING of 200,000, so they must be figuring the very best they can get to maintain their payments from you (the taxpayers), and not see their budgets go to hell, is 75,000. Anywhere from 50,000 to 75,000 would help them weather the Trump Admin.

(For perspective, know that 75,000 is at least 10,000 HIGHER than the average for the last ten years.)

FY18 determination should be zero!

Before I get to the details of the rally, know that I believe the only way the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) will ever be reformed is for Trump to come in with a determination of ZERO for FY18 and tell Congress to trash or reform the whole program.

Nothing will get Congress off their butts otherwise!

If Trump comes in with 50,000 (as rumored), nothing will ever change.

Here is what  HIAS is sending to its supporters (hat tip: Cathy):

Friends,

Just wanted to let you know HIAS is planning a rally on Sept. 14 in support of the U.S. welcoming more refugees.

Per the Facebook event:

Join HIAS for a timely public action by the U.S. Capitol (exact location to be announced), where we will:

· Urge our leaders to bring at least 75,000 refugees to the US next year
· Tell refugees’ personal stories and raise greater awareness of the global refugee crisis through interactive trivia

Honey sticks?

· Hand out honey sticks and encourage others to take action for refugees

More information: https://www.facebook.com/events/1516509395058729

When you go to that facebook page be sure to see the video about the Presidential Determination.  And, note that as of this writing, 10 people plan to attend.

What you should do….

Don’t go to their rally because it could be a set-up. I would not be surprised to find out that they staged someone with a Nazi sign for media consumption.

Instead organize small groups of citizens in the coming weeks to visit your local member of Congress office/US Senate offices (no matter how liberal your representative) and tell them what you think about the UN/USRAP.

If they refuse to meet with you, go to their local offices and stand outside with signs for a few hours. Get photos and put on social media.  (Send me a photo and I will put it on RRW!)

Why are they pressuring Congress? Because HIAS thinks it can persuade the Congressional leaders (RINO pro-business Republicans) to oppose Trump should he come in with anything less than their dream number—75,000.  And, they know it is Congress that can appropriate more money for the program than Trump requests!

*** For new readers, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society is one of the Federal contractors/middlemen/employment agencies/propagandists/lobbyists/community organizers? paid by you to place refugees in your towns and cities listed below.  Under the nine major contractors are hundreds of subcontractors.

The contractors income is largely dependent on taxpayer dollars based on the number of refugees admitted to the US, but they also receive myriad grants to service their “New Americans.”

If you are a good-hearted soul and think refugee resettlement is all about humanitarianism, think again! Big businesses/global corporations depend on the free flow of cheap (some call it slave) labor.

By the way, it was HIAS fear of RRW (me) telling the truth, that sent them to the SPLC which ultimately named me a hate “group.” Never mind that there is no group, just one blogger!  See here.

The only way for real reform of how the US admits refugees is to remove these contractors/Leftwing activists/big business head hunters from the process.

More on Kennewick sword-wielding Somali refugee killed by police

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 19, 2017

The Spokeman-Review wants you to know that Hussein Hassan was just a nut.  Which of course begs the question—do we screen incoming refugees for mental illness? The answer appears to be NO!

I probably wouldn’t bother posting this story meant to get you to ‘move along, nothing to see’ except for the fact that once again we see that Tyson Foods is a draw for refugee resettlement agencies to place their refugees as cheap laborers in meatpacking plants.

(See my previous post on the incident not reported by national media too busy with Charlottesville.)

We also learn here that it was the giant International Rescue Committee*** that placed Hussein Hassan with wife and EIGHT kids (taxpayers are responsible for!) in the proximity of Tyson Foods.

When Officer Jason Kiel found him on Olympia Street about 6:30 p.m., Hussein Hassan reportedly charged him, hitting him several times in the head. Officer Joshua Kuhn arrived next and both officers drew their guns and fired.

Downtown Kennewick, WA. Changing American towns whether you like it or not. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kennewick,_Washington By the way, I just searched for awhile trying to find a photo of Somali refugee Hassan and found none. Why no photo?

In the small community of Somali immigrants in the Tri-Cities, the father of eight was a well known, though a volatile, fixture, said Abdrahman Hassan, who owns a Kennewick grocery store.

“I think a lot of people in the Tri-Cities, they know this guy,” he told the Herald.

Abdrahman Hassan said he didn’t know how long Hassan had been in the U.S. but knew he brought his family to the Tri-Cities about five years ago after the International Rescue Committee Seattle helped move him to Tukwila in 2010.

Hussein Hassan spent a year in Pasco, before moving into a Sixth Avenue apartment in Kennewick.

He worked at Tyson Foods and then ConAgra before losing his job. He fell twice in a freezer tunnel at the Richland plant and hurt his back, according to documents he filed in a Benton County court.

His small claims court suit against his supervisor, claiming discrimination because he was Muslim, was ultimately dismissed. It’s unclear if he again found work.

Last October, his troubles worsened.

Someone called police because his wife reportedly was damaging a neighbor’s car.

Continue reading here to find out what happened when police came to his door.

Barcelona: “Clash of civilizations” says Polish interior minister

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 19, 2017

Invasion of Europe news….

From the New York Daily News yesterday:

Poland’s interior minister says “Europe should wake up” after the Barcelona attack and realize it’s dealing with a “clash of civilizations” that proves his government’s point that accepting migrants is a tragedy for Europe.

Mariusz Blaszczak says Friday his country is safe because “we do not have Muslim communities which are enclaves, which are a natural support base for Islamic terrorists.”

The ruling Law and Justice party has taken a strong anti-migrant stance, refusing to accept any refugees in a European Union resettlement plan, creating tensions with Brussels.

Blaszczak insisted late Thursday on state TVP that Warsaw will not succumb to EU pressure because it is putting Poland’s security needs first.

He said: “The refugee resettlement system is a system that is encouraging millions of people to come to Europe.”

The logic of his remarks is inescapable.

Northern Idaho: Don’t bring refugees here!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2017

A presentation in Bonner County on Wednesday ended earlier than planned because local opponents of refugee resettlement dominated the near capacity audience.

I suspect the citizens of Sandpoint and the surrounding rural region of Idaho had heard enough about refugee turmoil over 600 miles south in Twin Falls and didn’t see a need to bring the same trouble to their neighborhoods.

From the Bonner County Daily Bee:

SANDPOINT — A sustained lack of basic civility brought an abrupt end Wednesday to a presentation aimed at informing the public how refugee resettlement works in Idaho and the United States.

From the moment the meeting at Community Hall commenced, Nick and Laura Armstrong of Boise faced a tough room.

“I am advocating understanding,” Laura Armstrong tried to explain at one point.

A good portion of the capacity crowd, however, was having none of it.

Refugee resettlement foes groaned, scoffed, talked over, shouted and laughed derisively at the Armstrongs. When audience members who were genuinely curious about resettlement programs tried to get opponents to quiet down so the presentation could go on, they, too, were shouted down.

Nevertheless, the Armstrongs pressed ahead. They pointed out that the Bible is replete with people who were refugees, including Jesus. There are also cited repeated passages referring to God’s faithfulness and concern for “aliens” and “strangers.”  [The usual use of the Bible to suit their purposes!—ed]

[….]

Many of the foes of refugee resettlement viewed the presentation as a foot in the door to bring displaced people into Bonner County.

“We don’t want ‘em!” a woman shouted angrily.

The Armstrongs and the meeting’s hosts — the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force and a group called “follow ~ a community” — emphasized that there was no plan to bring refugees here, but opponents were dubious of those declarations.

The Armstrongs and the meeting’s hosts attempted to conduct a question-and-answer session on resettlement after the presentation, but only made it several questions in when it became clear productive discussion remained elusive.

Continue reading here. And, don’t miss the comments.  Some are better than the story.

For background, new readers might want to see our Twin Falls archive by clicking here.

This post is also filed in a category I call Pockets of Resistance,’ a phrase I first heard in 2013 when an Office of Refugee Resettlement spokesman referred to communities where citizens were questioning refugee resettlement as ‘pockets of resistance,’ explained here.

Starbucks awarding grants to other coffee companies to train refugee baristas

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2017

Jobs Americans won’t do?

I guess we can conclude that there are no Americans, no low-skilled citizens, looking to brew up your morning coffee.

Here is an idea!  Get your own coffee maker and do your brewing at  home!

By the way, I had a huge number of readers, here and at twitter when I posted about Breitbart’s TB and Starbucks story here last week.

 

 

This story tells us that a successful effort to train refugee baristas will depend on whether a lot of refugees are being placed in your city and whether lots of people are patronizing coffee shops.

“Opportunity for All” grant? Sounds more like “Only refugees need apply” grant!

From The Daily Californian:

Berkeley’s 1951 Coffee Company has been awarded the “Opportunity for All” grant by the Starbucks Foundation, allowing it to expand its barista training program for refugees to other cities in the United States.

The antidote: Make your own coffee at home! (LOL! I’m not affiliated with or promoting any particular coffee machine manufacturer!)

The grant awards the coffee company $63,000 to serve an additional 85 refugees, asylees and Special Immigrant Visa holders, according to a press release issued Wednesday by the company.

1951 Coffee was one of 41 nonprofit organizations selected by the Starbucks Foundation because of its approach to helping refugees obtain the skills required to succeed in a “rapidly changing global economy,” the press release stated.

Doug Hewitt, co-founder of 1951 Coffee, said he and co-founder Rachel Taber were very pleased to learn that the nonprofit had been approved for the grant. According to Hewitt, the grant will allow the company’s two-week barista training program in Oakland — which takes place every other month — to increase its services to monthly.

Hewitt added that, in terms of expansion, 1951 Coffee is looking to first take its training program to San Diego. Depending on how that effort goes, the nonprofit will decide where else to take the program.

According to Hewitt, in order for a city to have potential for expansion, it must have a refugee population being resettled there, as well as a strong coffee industry.

UN: Spain not ready for large influx of migrants from Africa

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2017

…..even less ready today?

This United Nations-generated story was published yesterday before we learned about an Islamic terror attack in Barcelona committed by some killers from Morocco.

So what are the odds that the Spanish public isn’t going to be too excited about finding resources and accommodations for the illegal migrants (70% are MEN)?

From The Guardian:

Spain lacks capacity to handle migration surge, says UN refugee agency

UNHCR warning comes as Spanish coastguard intercepts nearly 600 people in a day trying to reach country from Morocco

Spain lacks the resources and capacity to protect the rising number of refugees and migrants reaching it by sea, the UN refugee agency has said.

The warning from UNHCR comes as the Spanish coastguard said it rescued 593 people in a day from 15 small paddle boats, including 35 children and a baby, after they attempted to cross the seven-mile Strait of Gibraltar.

The number of refugees and migrants risking the sea journey between Morocco and Spain has been rising sharply, with the one-day figure the largest since August 2014, when about 1,300 people landed on the Spanish coast in a 24-hour period.

About 9,300 migrants have arrived in Spain by sea so far this year, while a further 3,500 have made it to two Spanish enclaves in north Africa, Ceuta and Melilla, the EU’s only land borders with Africa.

María Jesús Vega, a spokeswoman for UNHCR Spain, said police were badly under-resourced and there was a lack of interpreters and a shortage of accommodation for the new arrivals.

“The state isn’t prepared and there aren’t even the resources and the means to deal with the usual flow of people arriving by sea,” she said.

There is much more…..

After yesterday, I predict that Spanish citizens won’t be receptive to finding the “resources.”

Here is a good graphic from The Guardian:

Washington state Somali shot dead by police was refugee from Dadaab

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 17, 2017

In case you missed the update from World Net Daily about the “man” who sliced open a police officers head in Kennewick, Washington over the weekend (when everyone was busy focused on Charlottesville), here we learn that Hussain Hassan was from the UN’s Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya.  So much for screening—either security or mental health!

 

Dadaab in Kenya

 

See my post yesterday, here.

Wrapsnet has a very cool feature and that is the map showing “processing” countries. This Fiscal Year, through July 31, we processed 5,228 refugees through Kenya to American towns and cities.  Most of those would have been Somalis from Dadaab.  The total number of Somalis admitted to the US this FY was 5,899 through July 31.

Recently a Somali (sounded educated) wrote to me to tell me that there is a huge amount of fraud going on at Dadaab, but of course I have no way of verifying his information.

By the way, only Turkey sends us more refugees than Kenya.

Trump Admin reining-in Obama plan to get more Central American children to US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 16, 2017

Barack Obama illegally expanded the US Refugee Admissions Program a few years ago with his Central American Minors Program (CAM) which allowed Central American parents (from 3 countries) already in the US to get their kids to America by claiming they are refugees.  Obama said it would stem the illegal border invasion by ‘children.’  (Begging the question—so how could these parents simply leave their kids behind in the first place!)

Technically to be a refugee one must prove that one is persecuted for one of several reasons (religion, race, political persuasion, etc.) and that the person (the wannabe refugee) has left his country and would be harmed if returned. This is a very large hurdle for kids who are still in their country of origin and who are mostly economically challenged and not truly persecuted. So Obama bent the law further by allowing them to be paroled in to the US.

Trump has now dumped the parole option. If the kid can meet the refugee standards, presumably he/she can still get here.

From the San Diego Union-Tribune:

I was looking for an illustration for this story, and although not what the story is about, I found this incredible graph showing the cost to taxpayers for the surge in so-called “unaccompanied children” arriving illegally. The Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS) is responsible for them. Funny, the number of children crossing has declined while the cost keeps going up!

The Department of Homeland Security announced Tuesday it plans to shut down a program that offered some children and young adults from three Central Amercian countries a chance to lawfully immigrate to the U.S. to join their parents.

The decision will close down a portion of the Central American Minors program, established in 2014 under President Obama as a way to slow the stream of minors from strife-torn Central American countries.

The program allows unmarried youths under 21 years old from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala who had one parent who had lawful status in the U.S. to apply for refugee status, from their home country.

If the refugee status was denied. they could still be allowed into the U.S. under humanitarian parole, a way to legally be in the country that is not permanent but must be renewed periodically.

In an announcement to be published in the Federal Register today DHS said that it was terminating the humanitarian parole part of the CAM program.

Children and young adults can still seek refugee status , but if that is denied the parole option will no longer be available.

Lisa Frydman, Kids in Need of Defense, is Angelina Jolies organization. https://supportkind.org/about/leadership/

No reason was given for the change to the program, though the administration of President Donald Trump has made both choking off the flow of youths and families from Central America and tightening the legal immigration avenues a priority as part of its overall crackdown on immigration.

[….]

The program began in 2014, and in late 2016 it was expanded to allow additional family members to apply. But that expansion came late in the Obama presidency and because of the length of time it takes to review, investigate and approve an application no one has been admitted under the expanded rules.

Earlier this year the State Department said 11,000 people had applied to the program and 2,400 had been admitted. Another 2,700 individuals had been granted conditional parole but had not yet traveled to the U.S., according to Lisa Frydman with the Kids In Need Of Defense, an advocacy group in San Francisco.

The announcement said that those conditional approvals are now rescinded.

More here.

What might you do today?  Contact the White House and thank the president for doing this, and tell him to dump the whole program.  It is Congress’s job to write laws about who is and who isn’t a refugee.

By the way, much of the cost of the UACs in that graph above is because some of our usual contractors are being paid to care for the kids!

Kennewick, WA: Can’t ID man who attempted to kill police officer with sword?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 16, 2017

….First, the authorities and the media should call the local refugee resettlement contractor and see if he is one of theirs.  In this case the contractor World Relief Tri-Cities is the primary contractor for Richland/Kennewick/Pasco.  See one story here from 2013.

***Update*** Yup! Somali refugee, but the resettlement agency didn’t return phone calls. See here.

They will know if Hussain Hassan is one of the refugees they were paid to resettle in Kennewick or nearby.

Here is the story at World Net Daily by Leo Hohmann.  The police killed Hassan, but amazing no national news on this story from Sunday?

A 46-year-old man identified as Hussein Hassan attacked a police officer in Kennewick, Washington, over the weekend with a large sword, striking at the officer’s head before he was shot and killed.

The resettlement contractor, World Relief, for the Tri-Cities is located in Richland. See national list and find out if you have a refugee contractor nearby. Should be the first stop for police and media when trying to determine immigration status of someone involved in a crime that sounds like it is related to Islam. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.files.wordpress.com/2015/10/acb67-publicaffiliatedirectory1-6-17.pdf

A spokesman for the police said two officers responded to a 9-1-1 call at 6:38 p.m. Sunday about a man walking down Olympia Street near 10th Avenue armed with a sword.

The two officers arrived on the scene at the same time in separate cars at about 6:40 p.m. One officer got out of his car to confront Hassan and police say the man started swinging the sword, striking the officer at least once in the head with the blade.

Both officers opened fire on the suspect and put him down.

The officer was treated and released from an area hospital after receiving 17 staples to close the head wound.

Almost 24 hours later, on Monday evening, police identified the dead man as Hassan, but gave only scant details – his age and current city of residence.

[….]

Kennewick, a small city of about 73,000 population, has been a hotbed of refugee resettlement over the years. The U.S. State Department, in cooperation with the United Nations, has distributed more than 475 refugees into Kennewick since 9/11 from Muslim-majority nations, according to the State Department’s online database. That includes 206 from Iraq, 99 from Somalia, 69 from Sudan, 31 from Afghanistan and nine just in the past 10 months from Syria.

More here.

Other than Seattle, where there are thousands of Somali refugees, we have said little over the years about ‘welcoming’ Washington state, but go here for what we do have in the archives.
