Spartanburg residents not happy with “pontificating” from Asst. Sec. of State

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 29, 2015

This is Part II of my earlier post about South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley caving in to the federal government and signaling her willingness to ‘welcome’ refugees to South Carolina, a state which has heretofore not been a big target for resettlement (as have Kentucky, North Carolina and Georgia).  That all changed earlier in the year as residents there learned that federal contractor World Relief was planning to ‘seed’ Spartanburg with refugees from the Middle East, Asia and Africa which touched off a firestorm of criticism.

Yesterday, World Net Daily writer Leo Hohmann filled us in on how things went when the Asst. Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration came to town to try to tamp down the resistance.   See Part I here.

Following a discussion of what Rep. Trey Gowdy’s “murky” role is in the situation, we learn that two of those meeting with Ms. Richard—-Christina Jeffrey and Lynn Kisler—were not impressed.  Spartanburg is in Gowdy’s district.

WND:

Jeffrey said Richard admitted in Monday’s meeting that once a state agrees to participate in the federal refugee program, there is little local residents can do to stop it.

Christina Jeffrey II

Dr. Christina Jeffrey: Where are the hearings?

Another Spartanburg resident, Lynn Kisler, confronted Richard on the issue of national security.

This is priceless!

“Ms. Richard said she experiences terrorist threats whenever she travel overseas, and it was almost like they were already trying to condition us for that, kinda like a terrorist threat is an accepted way of life now, no big deal, and I could not believe my ears,” said Kisler. “I told her my house doesn’t have armed guards, it doesn’t have an 8-foot wall all around it, so for her to compare an embassy abroad to me being in my home among that population, when they want to bring that population here, it made me angry. I interrupted her and I said ‘you have armed guards, I don’t have armed guards.'”

Refugees just like American pilgrims?

Richard also began “pontificating” about how successful the refugee program has been everywhere it has been put in place, Kisler said. The assistant secretary even compared today’s refugees to the early pilgrims who settled America.

“I asked her how do you define success?” Kisler said. “Ask the people of St. Cloud, Minnesota, how successful it’s been there. It has destroyed that area.”

So many Somalis in Minnesota have been caught engaging in terrorist activity and sending money to overseas terrorists that the U.S. Attorney there, Andrew Luger, admitted in April that, “We have a terror recruitment problem in Minnesota.”

Dr. Jeffrey reiterated her call for Gowdy, who is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security and thus responsible for the refugee program in Congress, to hold hearings:

“For the sake of the rest of the country, we need Trey Gowdy, chairman of the subcommittee with oversight in this area to hold hearings on this under-supervised program that has been around since Jimmy Carter created it,” Jeffrey said.

In fact, the Babin bill which seeks to temporarily halt refugee resettlement is a perfectly good excuse to hold a hearing.  So what is taking Gowdy so long?  Is he worried about ruffling the feathers of senior Senator Lindsey Graham a longtime advocate of amnesty for illegal aliens and one of the Gang of Eight (along with fellow Presidential candidate Marco Rubio) that would have expanded the role of the nine major federal refugee resettlement contractors among other things.

Surely Benghazi doesn’t consume all of Gowdy’s time.

Are you angry enough yet?  Want to help?  Sign the petition!

SC Governor Nikki Haley ‘welcomes’ refugees to South Carolina (Part I)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 29, 2015

Angering her, Obama wants to send South Carolina some Gitmo prisoners, but in the meantime she has signaled her ‘welcome’ to third world refugees.

This is another informative article from World Net Daily investigative reporter Leo Hohmann which includes an update about the visit this past week of Anne Richard, Asst. Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration, who traveled to Spartanburg, SC to try to quell the resistance there to a new plan to seed Spartanburg with refugees.

From WND:

Some are calling it the “height of hypocrisy,” bordering on demagoguery.

Haley and Jindal

If Haley has any plans to run for higher office, she should have a chat with fellow governor Bobby Jindal who has been very tough on the subject of Muslim immigration to America. Maybe he can help set her straight? Jindal wants to restrict Muslim immigration to the US: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/megyn-kelly-grills-jindal-on-his-proposal-to-restrict-muslim-immigration-to-u-s/

Nikki Haley, South Carolina’s Republican governor, came out last Thursday and blasted possible White House plans to bring Guantanamo Bay prisoners to her state.

The governor called a news conference and didn’t mince words.

“We are absolutely drawing a line that we are not going to allow any terrorist to come into South Carolina,” Haley said. “We are not going to allow that kind of threat, we are not going to allow that kind of character to come in.

“My job is to protect the people of this state, and I take that very personally,” she continued. “I will take that personally the entire way through, so that the president, the Congress and anyone involved in this decision understands they are not wanted, they are not needed, and we will not accept them in South Carolina.”

Yet, at the same time she was drawing a red line against Gitmo terrorists who would stay locked in a brig off the coast of Charleston, Haley was opening her arms wide to welcome “refugees” from jihadist strongholds in the Middle East and Africa.

[….]

Haley has come down on the side of the State Department and the refugees, saying she trusts the vetting process, despite hundreds of arrests and active investigations involving refugees or children of refugees across the U.S. She has chosen to believe the State Department over the FBI, which is responsible for screening the refugees and warned that in some cases it’s an impossible task.

Please continue reading here, there is much more!  And, don’t miss the hundreds of comments!

Obama praises Merkel on Germany’s ‘welcome’ to Syrians….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 29, 2015

…..and in so doing casts the US (not Obama, but the Republicans!) as mean-spirited, unwelcoming obstructionists.

obama_merkel-kiss

Yuk!

It is fascinating to me that once again Obama is not the target of the criticism.  When the George W. Bush Administration was wisely not moving quickly enough (security concerns!) for the humanitarian industrial complex agitators pushing to resettle Iraqi refugees, it was all about that bad George Bush.

Now that it is Obama’s own Dept. of Homeland Security which says it can’t properly screen Syrians, it isn’t Obama’s fault, it’s the Republicans in Congress that are the meanies.

I hate to say it, but Obama has the legal authority to immediately open the flood gates and Congress can’t do much about it (nor do I think the Republican leadership has the will to do anything).

Invasion of Europe news…….

Here is Deutsche Welle on Obama’s praise for German Chancellor Angela Merkel:

Barack Obama publicly lauded German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s European leadership role in the Syrian refugee crisis. But the US president’s praise also draws attention to his own country’s meager record on the issue.

It does not happen every day that the White House puts out a statement explicitly praising a foreign leader for his or her actions on a certain issue. By doing so and by singling out Berlin’s decision to suspend the so called Dublin rules to allow more Syrian refugees to come to Germany, President Obama was providing crucial support for the chancellor, who has faced criticism at home for being too slow to act.

“I think the US is trying to put their political weight behind that leadership that she is showing,” said Elizabeth Collett, director of the Migration Policy Institute Europe.

Obama’s presidential praise came on Wednesday. Hours earlier, Chancellor Merkel was booed by far-right protesters during a visit to a refugee center in a German town at the center of a recent wave of anti-foreigner violence.

Is Obama starting a conversation back home?

Despite all those efforts and notwithstanding the political and security obstacles Obama is facing, said Betts, the administration’s reaction to the Syrian refugee crisis could have been much stronger than it has been. And in that way, he added, Obama’s remarks regarding Merkel were perhaps also intended as a conversation starter back home.

“Conferring praise on Germany is making a domestic political statement on the need for the US to do more.”

Much more here.

Get ready!

I think Obama will do something dramatic in his last year in the White House.  Will it be to open the flood gates to 65,000 Syrians?  In order to head this off, the subject of Syrian resettlement to the US must become a topic of conversation in the 2016 Presidential election contest—before Obama moves on it!  For those of you in early primary states being treated to many visits from candidates, please bring up the issue of refugee resettlement!

SC writer: Refugee program is fake Christian compassion

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 26, 2015

Editor:  This is a letter written by a concerned citizen of South Carolina.  It is an open letter to the Spartanburg County Council. The council may have no legal way to stop the US State Department (or so we are told), but if the Council voted to say they were not supportive of the effort to bring in impoverished people from the third world (because Spartanburg has its own poor minority) it would go a long way to persuade the US State Department to go elsewhere.

As of this writing I haven’t seen an update of what happened with meetings in  Spartanburg when the US State Department sent its top dog to a town that has developed a ‘Pocket of Resistance’ to World Relief/UN/US State Department plans to establish an immigrant seed community there.

I did see an excellent commentary at Fits News. Go here for an opinion in advance of the meetings yesterday and Monday.

richard-and-guterres

By remaining silent the Spartanburg County Council will allow these two to determine the future of Spartanburg: Asst. Sec. of State Anne Richard and UNHCR Antonio Guterres, former head of Socialists International.

Below is the letter from Beverly Owensby.  The sentiment she expresses here is one all of you concerned about being labeled “unwelcoming” or unchristian should pay attention to.  It is a view we have expressed here many times over the years—true Christian charity is using one’s own time and money  to help the poor preferably where they live.  Or, if one adopts, or supports an immigrant child or family, one uses one’s own resources and doesn’t dump the responsibility on the taxpayer.

An open letter:

After spending hundreds of hours on fact based research, the current REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT program is nothing more than an AMERICAN INVASION. Many are exploiting the compassion of Christians to trick them into accepting the REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM as the right thing to do to protect Christians from being persecuted. This is so far from the truth. Based on the U.S. State Department website, the majority of REFUGEES are Muslims. Why? The UNITED NATIONS is responsible for selecting who comes to America. GEORGE SOROS is spending billions of dollars to ensure the success of this program. If the United Nations and George Soros cared about Christians, they would have done something to prevent ISIS from killing so many Christians in the Middle East and other parts of the world.

CHRISTIAN COMPASSION DOES NOT TAX OTHERS!

CHRISTIAN COMPASSION IS A PERSONAL COMMITMENT TO A CAUSE! THIS IS NOT THE SAME THING AS THE GOVERNMENT FORCING INDIVIDUALS TO PAY FOR SOMETHING THEY BELIEVE IS WRONG!

The United States is $18 Trillion Dollars in Debt and cannot afford to pay for REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT! The United States is on the verge of an economic collapse that will destroy America. The REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT program is designed to push America over the edge. The influx of ILLEGALS coming across our Southern Border and entering the U.S. along with the REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT program are by design to overload the system.

Christians who want to help the REAL PERSECUTED CHRISTIAN can contact a Mission Board and let them know they are willing to house and provide total financial support for an individual or family. THIS IS TRUE CHRISTIAN COMPASSION…. NOT FAKE CHRISTIAN COMPASSION! ….

IF YOU TRULY CARE ABOUT SPARTANBURG COUNTY, YOU WILL VOTE NO TO THE REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM!

THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL YOU DO FOR SPARTANBURG COUNTY!

LET FREEDOM RING,

Beverly Owensby

What would Jesus do?  I suspect he would throw the money changers (federal contractors, including the US Catholic Bishops!) out of the temple.

Somali day care fraud cases piling up in Minnesota

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 25, 2015

Again, not enough time to give you all the ins and outs of these cases, you need to read this story yourselves.  Thanks to a reader for sending it!

For those of you thinking that this is Minnesota’s problem, think again!

The federal Office of Refugee Resettlement is giving grants to some of the nine major federal contractors and subcontractors responsible for resettling refugees to help refugee women set up dare care facilities to provide “culturally appropriate” day care in towns where you live (see below)!  BTW, they are basically using your tax dollars to compete with American women who might want to become day care providers.   And, you might want to ask, well what about assimilating to America if they are placing Somali kids only in Somali run day care centers?  Where is the multiculturalism in this?

From Alphanews:

Since the Minnesota Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) fully-staffed their new child care fraud investigative unit in the spring of 2014, they’ve worked with the FBI to shutter daycare centers around the state. Of the cases that have hit the news since then, all have involved Somali-run businesses.

Khadra Hirsi

Hirsi gets one year in jail and must repay $300,000, but I bet you a buck that the money she scammed Minnesotans out of has long since left the country!

Khadra Abdisafad Hirsi, 47, was the director and co-owner of Ace Daycare Center in Eden Prairie. In February, Hirsi pleaded guilty to knowingly submitting fraudulent claims to the state of Minnesota’s Child Care Assistance Program. From November of 2011-May of 2013, Hirisi inflated the number of children using her daycare’s services and fraudulently obtained $300,000 in payments from the state of Minnesota and the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services. Earlier this month Hirsi was sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison and ordered to pay $300,000 in restitution.

[….]

Deqo daycare center, which had three locations in Apple Valley, St. Paul, and Minneapolis was shut down in 2013 due to licensing violations and prosecutors charged husband and wife Ahmed Aden Mohamed and Yasmin Abdulle Ali for bilking the state out of nearly $3.7 million, $3.1 million of which was collected from April 2012-January 2013. The duo had recruited more than 100 parents to enroll their own children in the program.

There is much more here.

Now be sure to visit the Office of Refugee Resettlement, Microenterprise Development—Home Based Child Care program where your tax dollars are handed out in grants to help Somalis (and other refugees) become day care owners and operators.  Go here and be sick!

And, I suspect that the contractor administering the grant is not audited to determine where exactly this money is spent!  People ask me all the time how can a contractor make enough money simply by collecting the per-head payment for each refugee they resettle.  Well, it is grants like these that send more money into their coffers.

Backpedaling on the numbers of refugees expected in North Dakota

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2015

Editor’s note:  I am still out of the country and trying to post when I get a minute. I see I have a boatload of e-mails and will try to get to those as soon as possible.  I apologize for not responding sooner.

It was only a few weeks ago that WDAY-6 News was reporting that the number of refugees expected in North Dakota this fall was going to jump, but now following controversy that those statements generated, it seems that Lutheran Social Services North Dakota is moving quickly to say, oh, no!, the numbers will be ‘normal.’

LSS north dakota

Gotta keep the refugees flowing into North Dakota because LSS has a fancy new building to pay for. LSS is paid by the head to resettle refugees AND they receive other federal grants for all sorts of additional “programs” for their special charges. From a recent FORM990 we learned they received over $10 million in government grants.

In this article at Inforum, a spokeswoman for LSS says that people (citizens, taxpayers) don’t understand how this all works and that is how they/we get confused.

But, here is the deal, the reason people can get confused is that these agencies have been for 35 years(!) working in SECRECY, so is it any surprise there could be confusion.

There should be a least one public meeting a year in each refugee receiving community where the resettlement agency, the feds and city and state elected officials explain to the community who and how many they will be expected to “welcome” to town in the coming year.

How about a public meeting in Fargo or Grand Forks where LSS does explain how the whole program works!

Here is Inforum:

GRAND FORKS – Refugee resettlements in Grand Forks are expected to remain the same as in previous years, according to Lutheran Social Services.

The city can expect four to 12 refugees to arrive here by October, said Katie Dachtler, resettlement services supervisor. The total number expected is on par with previous years, she said.

Varied reports on the expected number of refugees to arrive this fall in the Fargo area led to the perception by some that the cities would have more refugees than each could handle by October, sparking harsh online comments and a Change.org petition asking LSS to stop further placement unless it’s approved by a vote from Cass County residents. As of Friday afternoon, the petition had gained 3,037 signatures.

Read the whole thing and follow links.

Be sure to see the section on the ‘Somali Community of Grand Forks’ which is what previously was called an ECBO (Ethnic Community Based Organization) ‘non-profits’ funded largely with tax dollars.  ECBO’s help THEIR people get a start, help them find “resources,” help them get registered to vote, and then act as political spokespersons if some problem arises with THEIR people.  

Now they are called Ethnic Community Self Help groups.  Here is one recent list of grantees at the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement.  The Grand Forks Somali ECBO is not listed here, but has certainly received start-up money from some federal or state agency.   I could not find any financials on the group.  Concerned citizens in North Dakota need to do some research on this group and others like it.

The big question is why should taxpayers fund groups that seek to promote special treatment for THEIR ethnic “community.”

We have a category on ECBOs here, but haven’t had much news archived there lately.

This post is also filed in our new ‘Pockets of Resistance’ category, here.

IBD Opinion: Trump would crack down on Muslim immigration

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 23, 2015

Presidential candidate Donald Trump hasn’t said much on the subject, but from personal experience I know the subject interests him.

Trump in Alabama

I’ve been told to watch Trump’s Alabama speech, but have not had time yet while traveling. See it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPWERFt-gf8

Here is a hopeful-sounding opinion piece from Investors Business Daily from a few days ago.

Muslim immigration is a national security issue (where have I heard that before!):

Border Security: There are two ways Islamofascists plan to conquer America — one by violent jihad, the other by mass immigration, or “al-hijrah.” Our president has aided the latter. Donald Trump wants to stop it.

Lost in all the coverage of the GOP presidential hopeful’s plan to seal the Mexican border is his proposal to curb Muslim immigration, which Obama is dangerously abetting through liberalized refugee programs. In fact, this administration has been ushering in immigrants from predominantly Muslim countries at the rate of more than 100,000 a year.

Citing national security, Trump would stop the flood of immigrants from Somalia, Saudi Arabia, Syria and other Muslim countries posing a terrorist risk.

“Additionally,” he said in his five-page immigration reform proposal, “we need to stop giving legal immigrant visas to people bent on causing us harm.”

“From the 9/11 hijackers to the Boston bombers and many others, our immigration system is being used to attack us,” he added.

Trump is right. This is a national security issue. Importing more hard-core Somali families and male Saudi students raises our risks of being attacked.

There is more, go here.

At least he is willing to talk about it which is more than can be said of any other Presidential candidate!  Oops!  Except Rand Paul who a couple of years ago thrilled me by speaking out on the refugee program (after those Iraqi refugee terrorists were found living in his home town of Bowling Green, KY).  Senator Paul wanted to know why we were bringing all these refugees in from countries like Iraq and signing them up for welfare.  To follow Paul on the subject, type Rand Paul into our search function and see his ups and downs on the subject over the last few years.  (No time to find the links for you while still traveling.)

Asst. Secretary of State Anne Richard will answer questions about refugees in Spartanburg, SC this coming week….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 22, 2015

….but, only to small selected groups!  And, she will meet separately with each one according to the latest from Go Upstate.

Update August 24th:  For more information on what is happening, contact Dr. Christina Jeffrey. christininakfjeffrey@gmail.com

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration Affairs Anne Richard arrives for a press conference at a hotel in Putrajaya, Malaysia Monday, June 1, 2015. Richard said resettlement in a third country is not the answer to the swelling tide of boat people in Southeast Asia and called for Myanmar citizenship to be given to Rohingya Muslims fleeing persecution there. (AP Photo/Joshua Paul)

Anne C. Richard was formerly a vice president (for advocacy) at one of the nine federal resettlement contractors—the International Rescue Committee now headed up by Brit David Miliband. http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/biog/188212.htm

A trip by the Asst. Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration frankly signals that the State Department is going to fight for each prospective town or city (or state!) that they want to be relocation sites for refugees in the coming year.  And, frankly, they are running out of ‘welcoming’ places so they need to suppress any resistance where they find it now.

For new readers, be sure to visit our first post on Spartanburg where we have updated readers as often as we could about how the resistance was developing there.

Pay particular attention to this idea apparently from the State Department to have separate meetings with those for and against the plan.  I’m surprised that Rep. Trey Gowdy’s office fell for this technique which leaves Ms. Richard in the position of spinning what each of the ‘stakeholders’ and taxpayers (not considered stakeholders) groups concerns might be.

From GoUpstate.com:

Assistant Secretary of State Anne Richard will visit Spartanburg next week to address concerns surrounding a plan already underway to resettle refugees in the area.

Richard, in coordination with U.S. Congressman Trey Gowdy’s office, plans to meet with local government leaders, community groups, concerned constituents and others.

Richard also will meet with World Relief, a faith-based organization that is leading efforts to assimilate refugees in Spartanburg as part of the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program. She plans to hold individual meetings Monday and Tuesday at the Mary Black Foundation on East Main Street in Spartanburg to discuss refugee resettlement and the admissions program, said Danna Van Brandt, a spokeswoman for the State Department.

Van Brandt said Richard opted to meet face to face with select groups at scheduled times to better answer in-depth questions.

Continue reading here.

I say, why not let everyone in Spartanburg who has an interest in this issue hear what each side has to say (and what elected officials have to say)!

Quick note on Wyoming!

It looks like they are going to fight to get a refugee program open in Wyoming or why else is a piece like this running at Wyoming Public Radio?

As I said they need every town, city or state they can get as they are running out of places for the tens of thousands of refugees being brought in each year.  I expect next year to be huge because they will surely expand the program for the Syrians the UN is pushing on America (and Europe).

One last note: South Carolina has only taken a small number of refugees in comparison to its surrounding states—North Carolina, Georgia and Kentucky.  Wyoming has taken none and the State Department and its contractors need to break open these states!

Feds won’t say exactly what the invasion by Unaccompanied Alien Children cost US last year

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 22, 2015

Julia Hahn at Breitbart has another excellent story with details about the impact on America of refugees, asylees, and this time those Unaccompanied Alien Children who are given over to the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

border boys

The majority of the ‘children’ spread throughout the US were teenage boys.

Here is her story from this week (trying to post a few things from afar when I catch a few free minutes):

Illegal aliens who show up at the border have been resettled all across United States of America instead of being detained and deported, as Donald Trump recently called for in his new immigration plan.

According to data from the Justice Department obtained by Breitbart News, 96 percent of Central Americans caught illegally crossing into the country last summer are still in the United States. Now Breitbart News has learned exclusively that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from a pro-security group about the cost of this operation is being stonewalled.

In January of 2015, the Immigration Reform Law Institute, on behalf of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), filed a FOIA request to discover the cost of accommodating the tens of thousands of illegal unaccompanied minors who came across the border encouraged by President Obama’s 2012 executive amnesty for illegal youths.

The FOIA letter made five requests of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency: that the federal agency detail (1) the costs of building of family detention centers; (2) the costs of apprehending, processing and detaining unaccompanied minors; (3) the costs transporting, transferring, removing and repatriating unaccompanied minors; (4) the costs related to ICE’s representation of government in removal procedures involving unaccompanied minors; and (5) the number of instances where objections to the return of unaccompanied minors were raised by the governments of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

The federal agency, however, refused to answer many of these questions– instead only partially answering two of the five requests.

There is more, continue reading here.

All of our coverage of the ‘unaccompanied minors’ catastrophe is here.   ‘Unaccompanied minor’ was the earlier terminology used for the ‘children’ and we have followed the issue for years so everything we’ve written is archived using that term.  The US Conference of Catholic Bishops and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service are two of the nine major refugee resettlement contractors who are paid to help care for the ‘children.’

State Department: 8,000 Syrians to arrive in US in FY2016

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 21, 2015

That is according to Breitbart (hat tip: Rosemary).   It is a huge number, but I think they will go for even greater numbers since their contractor friends and 14 US Senators are recommending 65,000!

Turkey Syrian camp

Many of the thousands of Syrian refugees that the US will resettle will come from Turkey.

Here is Breitbart:

The State Department is anticipating that the U.S. will admit up to 8,000 Syrian refugees in Fiscal Year 2016.

In written responses to the Senate Judiciary Immigration and the National Interest Subcommittee Republicans obtained by Breitbart News, the State Department reveals that it is expecting the U.S. will accelerate its acceptance of Syrian refugees next year.

“As of July 30, the United States has admitted 1,042 Syrian refugees in FY 2015 and anticipates admitting a total of 1,500-1,800 Syrians this fiscal year. We anticipate admitting 5,000-8,000 Syrian refugees in FY 2016,” the State Department wrote.

The Obama administration’s effort to resettle thousands of Syrian refugees into the U.S. has come under fire as a potential national security risk.

Here is David Miliband, CEO of US resettlement contractor the International Rescue Committee, pushing for 65,000 (mostly Muslim) Syrians to be sent to your towns and cities before Obama leaves office.
