Opposition to refugee resettlement growing in West Virginia

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 26, 2016

We have reported on many occasions that West Virginia has pretty much dodged a bullet when it comes to the federal government resettling third worlders in the state, but all of that is changing as new efforts are underway to supply more industries there with cheap labor—in a state that has been struggling for years! [***Update*** or is it pressure from the Catholic Church, see here—ed]

The controversy began last spring when Episcopal Migration Ministries (one of 9 federal refugee contractors) went public with its plan to bring Middle Eastern refugees—Syrians in particular—to Charleston which had only gotten a few Iraqis and Iranians in the last ten years.


Rep. Alex Mooney represents Charleston, WV. He is also a member of the House Freedom Caucus. West Virginians who have concerns about refugees being placed secretly in the state, must get a commitment from him BEFORE the election to join any effort in the lame duck session to DEFUND the RAP. See here:

BTW, 176 refugees in total were placed (mostly by Catholic Charities) in West Virginia in the last decade. Charleston got 13 Iraqis and 9 Iranians before last year’s five Syrians.

We reported on the plan by EMM here. Then again here and here in September. And, more recently published the testimony of citizen activist Brenda Arthur to Senator Jeff Sessions Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, here.

Arthur has now launched a facebook page—ACT Charleston-Secure West Virginia.  Click here to join and keep up with the news.

Earlier in the summer when Arthur was just learning about the RAP (Refugee Admissions Program), after reading about it in an article in the Charleston Daily Mail, she penned a letter to the editor.  Arthur reports the following:

This (below) is the letter I tried to get Kelly Merritt – Charleston Daily Mail Opinion Page Editor – to publish in late July 2016.  He wanted me to “soften” it, as he said it was too “inflammatory”. I would not — therefore, he would not publish it.

This is the “inflammatory” letter, what do you think?

Brenda Arthur

On May 26, 2016, the Charleston Gazette-Mail published an article by staff writer Erin Beck. She painted a glowing face on the issue of Charleston being targeted by Episcopal Migration Ministries as a “resettlement community.” I’m compelled to fill in gaps in her narrative with what Paul Harvey called ‘the rest of the story’.

The refugees being brought to the United States are 98% Muslim. Only a small number are Christians. In reality, the Christians are treated much worse in the refugee camps. Many Christians are afraid to go to the refugee camps because of mistreatment by the overwhelming numbers of Muslims.

Although people being brought here as refugees come from all over the world — many of those coming now are picked by the United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees from the refugee camps in Syria, Turkey, and Jordan. The UN is a corrupt organization that hates America and Israel. How can we trust any refugees they pick for us?

Beck’s article never mentioned that ISIS has sworn to infiltrate the ‘refugees’:

“ISIS has said in their own words that they want to exploit it to infiltrate the West. Again, it is not a threat I am making up, it’s a threat their own officials have warned us about.” (11/18/15)–House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul.

Beck neglected to report that these refugees can’t be vetted, an alarming fact that ISIS knows even if Erin Beck doesn’t.

James B. Comey, Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Department of Justice: “There is risk associated with bringing anybody in from the outside, but especially from a conflict zone like [Syria]… My concern there [about bringing Syrian refugees into the United States] is that there are certain gaps I don’t want to talk about publicly in the data available to us.” (10/8/15)

Supporters of this resettlement scheme will tell you that the refugees are vetted by our State Department and Homeland Security. REALLY? Is this the same State Department that “vetted” the wife of the San Bernardino terrorist, and gave refugee status to the Tsarnaev brothers a.k.a. the Boston bombers? Perhaps Erin Beck has a copy of the State Department memo warning Charleston – and other host cities across America – that some refugees are afflicted with drug resistant strains of TB.

Are we to believe highly informed intelligence experts — or groups like the Episcopal Migration Ministries (one of 9 major Federal Contractors paid mostly with our tax dollars) who are paid “by the head” to bring these people to the United States. Thanks to a reserved place at the public trough, these Federal Contractors get hundreds of millions of dollars in government grants.

Ask yourself these questions:

Why do groups like Episcopal Migration Ministries (a 501(c) 3 charity) *(and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops operating in West Virginia as Catholic Charities of West Virginia) get hundreds of millions of our tax dollars to do their work ?

Why do they operate “below the radar” away from public scrutiny?

Why aren’t they presenting our elected representatives with the R & P Abstract (Reception & Placement) which details the plan for the town they are invading?

Before you vilify me as a bigot, xenophobe, racist, or hater, answer these questions:

Why is it incumbent on us to absorb so many impoverished third world peoples who reject our language, our culture, or our values?

Why spend millions on them when thousands of my fellow West Virginians are facing hard times due to the Federal assault on our coal industry?

Why is money given to foreign nationals when our veterans cannot get quality medical care?

Why not resettle them in other Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia where there is plenty of space and oil money to boot?

Why should our country which is almost 20 Trillion dollars in debt give refugees Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Food Stamps, Medicaid, Social Security Disability Insurance, Public Housing, Child Care & Development, Job Opportunities for Low Income Individuals (JOLI), Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), and other government benefits?

We have our own problems. Could any group that wants to bring impoverished third world peoples here that add a further financial burden to our citizens and have the potential of risking our security have the interest of our community and state in mind?

*Added: 10-23-16

More questions from me:

Where is the West Virginia Congressional Delegation? Where is Senator Shelley Moore Capito? Where is Rep. Alex Mooney? Are they shilling for industries in West Virginia clamoring for cheap immigrant labor in a state that has seen unemployment go up as the coal industry is being killed by Obama?  Their silence is telling!

Endnote: While doing my research on Iraqis here yesterday, I noticed that the tiny town of Washington, WV on the Ohio border is getting Iraqis, only a small number so far, but I wonder why? Spillover from Ohio?

Roanoke, Virginia: Refugee kills one wounds three at manufacturing company

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 25, 2016

No wonder Roanoke isn’t feeling very welcoming toward more refugees (remember this story! ).

Hey, all you big companies looking for cheap refugee labor take note! We bring an awful lot of refugees in to America with mental illnesses.

From WDBJ7 (Hat tip: Suzanne):

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) The man who shot and killed a person and shot three others at FreightCar America has been identified as 53-year-old Getachew Fekede from Kenya.


Police on the scene of this morning’s shooting in Roanoke. Shooter is a refugee former worker at the FreightCar America facility there.

Police say he died from a self-inflicted gunshot would.

Three other employees were shot. One of them has been released from the hospital.

Roanoke police say around 10 rounds were fired from a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun.

Fekede last worked at FreightCar America in March. [They make railroad cars—ed]. He arrived at the building by bicycle, police say.

Fekede came to Virginia in 2011 as part of a refugee program.

No mention of Fekede’s nationality (his resettlement contractor*** would know).  We don’t take Kenyans as refugees, but we take thousands of Somalis and other African migrants (Sudanese, Ethiopians) who have re-located to Kenya.  So keep an eye out for more news about where he is really from and what his religion might be. [Update: a reader tells us he is probably Ethiopian.]

Longtime readers may remember the famous failed kidnapping plot in Roanoke in 2009 where several refugees were found guilty of attempting to kidnap one or more prominent women in the town and hold her/them for ransom.

Also we have 2,024 posts in our refugee crimes category, here.

*** Commonwealth Catholic Charities is responsible for refugees resettled in Roanoke.

Where have all the Iraqis gone?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 25, 2016

I was doing some research on West Virginia just now and was interested to see how many Iraqis went to WV (a state that has been able to stay out of the Refugee Admissions Program to any large degree, but is now looking to get in) and so I had a look at the whole country and thought you might be interested in this information.


When this Iraqi refugee terrorist pair was arrested in Kentucky in 2011, the flow of Iraqis slowed dramatically as the feds had to re-screen all of the incoming Iraqis. Their original screening of these two failed miserably.

I went back ten fiscal years and learned that in the last decade we admitted 135,648 Iraqi ‘refugees.’ Of those 63% are Muslims and the remaining 37% represent a whole host of religions (we are cleaning out the country of its minority population!) including Catholics, Christians and Chaldeans.

When I saw the breakdown of the Muslim numbers, it made me laugh.  Who is persecuting who because we have brought in large numbers of the two primary opposing factions!

We admitted:  34,679 Shiites, 48,297 Sunnis, and 2,116 Muslims of unknown orientation.  Are we placing them in the same towns so they can continue their infighting?  Are we placing Iraqi Christians among them? (The resettlement contractors must think that America’s magic melting pot will erase centuries of animosity—it won’t.)

Here is the map from the Refugee Processing Center of where the Iraqis have been placed. (There may be a way to find out which religions you got in your state, but I don’t know how to find that information. Knowing how the VOLAGs operate they probably sent you a smattering of all of them so you might have tensions in your community going forward.)




Alaska got 49 and Hawaii 4 but they didn’t fit on the map. Source Refugee Processing Center


Here are the numbers resettled by fiscal year (again, I did not go back to the first wave of Iraqis who came in the wake of the first George Bush war).  One thing that you will see clearly is that once we get rolling and admit large populations of a particular ethnic group, we don’t stop for years and years (Somalis have been coming for decades).

FY 2007:  1,608  (This is the first year I began writing this blog and I remember well how the VOLAGs and the Open Borders gang were haranguing GWB to open the flood gates for Iraqis which he finally did. They said we broke Iraq so it was our responsibility to resettle vast numbers of their warring factions.)

FY 2008:  13,822

FY 2009:  18,838

FY 2010:  18,016

FY 2011:  9,388 (this dip is due to the discovery of 2 Iraqi Islamic terrorists in Kentucky, so the feds had to re-screen all the incoming Iraqis.)

FY 2012:  12,163

FY 2013: 19,488

FY 2014:  19,769

FY 2015:  12,676

FY 2016:  9,880

Endnote:  LOL! This is how I get off track almost daily, I find something interesting to me and then don’t get to what I planned for the day. But, hopefully this is useful to some of you!

One more thing…. Don’t like what you see?  You only have 14 days (including today) to get a commitment from your member of Congress to DEFUND the Refugee Admissions Program in the lame duck session of Congress!  They won’t care what you think after November 8th!

Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID) in position to reform refugee program (if he had a will to do it)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 24, 2016

This is another in my series on Congress and the budget process as it relates to the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program (RAP).  See Texas last week, here.

Simpson represents Idaho’s 2nd District which wikipedia describes below:

In addition to Boise….

Other major cities in the 2nd district include Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Twin Falls, and Rexburg. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a strong presence in the district; a member of the LDS Church has represented this district continuously since 1951.  [See our recent post about the increasing role of the Mormon church in resettlement of third worlders to America—ed]


Rep. Mike Simpson has been in Idaho politics since 1980. He could help reform the Refugee Admissions Program if he had a will to do so. If I lived in the district I would be researching which industries looking for cheap immigrant labor support his campaign. You should know that on Conservative Reviews Liberty Score card, Simpson has an ‘F’

Regular readers know that Boise and Twin Falls are major resettlement sites in Idaho with large numbers of Muslim refugees arriving to work in places like the Chobani yogurt plant (go here for our huge archive on Idaho).

A recent article at Magic Valley reports on Rep. Simpson’s views on many issues including immigration (he supports ‘comprehensive immigration reform’, aka amnesty, because he says we need workers).

And then here is a standard squishy response on arguably one of the hottest issues in Idaho—refugee resettlement in Boise and Twin Falls.

What are your views on the refugee resettlement program and on accepting refugees from the Middle East, and from Syria in particular? Do you support making any changes to the program or the vetting process? Should we be letting in more refugees? Fewer refugees?

I continue to support the American principle that we will not return a foreign national to a country where his or her life or freedom would be threatened based on their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. That being said, I am still concerned about the current vetting process, in particular for refugees from Syria, and I will continue to support efforts to strengthen that process. The real issue is that this Administration has not been able to effectively communicate to the American people that they can keep us safe. To regain our trust, the State Department and Department of Homeland Security must communicate a clear plan for the screening of Syrian refugees that is stringent and thorough enough to ensure those entering the United States will do no harm.

His answer demonstrates the usual dodge—it’s the Obama Administration’s fault for not communicating clearly how they will keep us safe.  And, no answer to the question of more refugees!

He doesn’t tell you that as the 5th in seniority (he has been in Congress for 18 years!) on the powerful House Appropriations Committee, he is in the catbird seat to do something about security screening of Syrians.

(Simpson is not a member of the House Freedom Caucus nor did he support Rep. Brian Babin’s efforts to cut the funding for the RAP earlier this fall, see here.)

And, what does he mean by “not return a foreign national.”  This isn’t a question of sending someone back, it is a question of bringing them in in the first place!

Again, it is about the money! He could be working to cut the funding for the program until the security screening (the vetting process) is made safe.  Washington representatives like Mike Simpson want you to think it is the Democrats in the White House and the agencies—DOS and Homeland Security—who need to do their jobs.  But, in reality he has more power than they do, because he is one of the key members of Congress holding the purse strings!  He just doesn’t want his voters to know that!

Ironically he says this about the budget process on his website:

It is important for Americans to understand how the federal appropriations process works so that they can advocate for responsible federal spending.

On that he and I agree and that is why I am hounding you all, if you really want to try to get the RAP under control, get it reformed or stopped altogether, you too must understand the appropriations and budget process.

So what do you do if you live in Rep. Mike Simpson’s district?

There is only one thing you can do to slow this flow (besides electing Donald Trump) which at this rate would bring around 20,000 Syrians to America by next fall and that is to persuade your member of Congress and US Senators to DEFUND the program in the lame duck Budget debate coming in November. 

Simpson and other members could stop or slow the flow using their power of the purse!

See the first in a series of posts on the lame duck budget process by clicking here. This is not about Obama! Your Congressional Representatives have the power to rein this in if they wanted to (and they don’t want you to know that they have that power!).

You have 15 days before election day to get a commitment from your Washington, DC representatives to DEFUND!

Citizens concerned about the impact of refugees on the 2nd District of Idaho must haunt Simpson’s campaign for those 15 days!  Frankly, you might be better off with a new representative, no matter what party, but with no power, than a powerful Republican member like Simpson not working for you, but against you.

And, don’t forget Idaho’s US Senators and other Congressman.  There are only 4 total members of the Idaho delegation, here.

All of our posts on the Congressional budget process are tagged: where is Congress.

Obama State Department is pouring refugees in at rate to admit 135,000 by September 2017

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2016

Just as we predicted, Obama’s State Department is admitting refugees at a rate not seen in decades. Are they trying to flood the zone before a possible Trump Administration takes the reins of government in January?  We think so!

I was having such fun researching numbers for my previous post, here, that I thought I would check the general flow for all refugees being admitted in the first three weeks of Fiscal Year 2017.  Obama has proposed a refugee admission plan for 110,000 refugees to be placed in your towns by September 30, 2017.  However, at the rate they are coming in, 135,000 could be here by that date.  (Most of Obama’s plans for previous years averaged much less than 70,000 a year***.)


Minnesota is the top resettlement state for Somalis. It is also the top secondary migration state as Somalis resettled elsewhere head there in large numbers. Note the Somali flags in this photo.

The 110,000 is a ceiling, so presumably to reach 135,000 they would have to “consult” with a weak Congress.

According to data maintained at the Refugee Processing Center, we admitted 7,780 refugees in the last 3 weeks.  That is 2,593 a week (from all religions and countries). Multiply that by 52 weeks in the year and we get 134,853.

Muslim refugees…

What I want to point out here are the Muslim refugees (3,517 in the first three weeks) and all of the different countries they come from. While we focus on the Syrians and the problems with vetting, make no mistake, they can’t properly vet any of these Muslims who we have picked up all over the world.

And, what good is vetting when the little kids we raised on our dime grow up to be jihadists as we have seen many times among Somali refugees primarily from Minnesota.

The most shocking number below is for Somalis in the first 3 weeks.  We are bringing them in at a rate NEVER seen. At this rate (335 a week) we could bring in over 17,000 by the end of the fiscal year Go here to see the top years we have ever had for Somali resettlement.  The previous top year was in the Bush Administration (2004) when we admitted, 12,814.

The United Nations wants to clean out the Somali camps in Kenya and it sure looks like we said, “yes master!”

So here are the countries from which we received Muslim refugees in the last 3 weeks (October 1 to October 21, 2016):

Afghanistan (173)

Azerbaijan (2)

Burma (180) These are the devout Rohingya! We have no data on them as they have left Burma! We pick them up in Malaysia and throughout that region of the world.

Central African Republic (13)

DR Congo (71) We were led to believe all of those from DR Congo were NOT Muslims

Djibouti (2)

Eritrea (6)

Ethiopia (65)

Iran (32)

Iraq (818)

Ivory Coast (3)

Mali (1)

Pakistan (9)

Rep. of S. Sudan (2)

Sierra Leone (1)

Somalia (1,007) This is a resettlement rate never seen before.

Sudan (75)

Syria (1,054)

Uganda (3)

Uzbekistan (1)

See this map below from the Refugee Processing Center showing where the 1,007 Somalis were distributed in the last 3 weeks. It won’t take long for large numbers of them to move to Minnesota as secondary migrants (they want to be with their own kind of people!).




This map depicts Somali resettlement for the first 3 weeks of FY2017.  Alaska didn’t fit on the map, but it got 4.

Don’t like what you see?

There is only one thing you can do to slow this flow (besides electing Donald Trump) which at this rate would bring around 135,000 refugees to America by next fall and that is to persuade your member of Congress and US Senators to DEFUND the program in the lame duck Budget debate coming in November. 

See the first in a series of posts on the lame duck budget process by clicking here. This is not about Obama, your Congressional Representatives have the power to rein this in if they wanted to (and they don’t want you to know that they have that power!).

You have 16 days before election day to get a commitment from your Washington, DC representatives to DEFUND!

*** Check out this table which shows about the last ten years of refugee ceilings then actual resettlement numbers.  You can see it averages less than 70,000 a year. So at 135,000 that is almost double anything we have admitted in more than a decade. (I was too lazy to look up our final tally for 2016, but it came in around the 85,000 mark).

Over 1,000 Syrians seeded throughout America in last 3 weeks; 99% Muslim

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2016

Apparently there is no effort being made to resettle more persecuted Christians from Syria than Obama did last year.

1,069 Syrians have been spread around America in the first three weeks of FY2017. That is 352 a week. 99% or 1,054 practice some form of Islam.  The vast majority are Sunni Muslims.


There will most likely be 20,000 Syrian (99%) Muslim refugees admitted to the US by September 30, 2017, UNLESS Congress cuts the funding for the program next month!

There were 4 Catholics, 3 Christians and 8 Orthodox identified in the flow.

The top state receiving them was Michigan (by far!).

Here are the top ten receiving states:

Michigan (199)

California (104)

Arizona (68)

Maryland (63)

Pennsylvania (63)

Texas (62)

New York (60)

Ohio (50)

Indiana (42)

Georgia (42)

See the map from the Refugee Processing Center for the first 3 weeks of the fiscal year (30 states received Syrians so far, assuming I counted them correctly!):

Maryland: CAIR wants 14-year-old girl investigated in case of threatening note to Iraqi refugee family

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2016

Thanks to Wikileaks, we are becoming increasingly aware (more than ever before) of how the mainstream media presents ‘news’ in a way to push an agenda or oppose candidates they don’t like.

A prime example……

I literally sat here with my mouth open when I read this story (the whole story!) at WBAL in Baltimore by Saliqua Khan (Islamophobic note we are told in the headline!).

If I had stopped reading at paragraph ten, I would have a completely different idea of what happened.  Here is what we are told first:

DUNDALK, Md. —A civil rights group is asking authorities to investigate a hate message as a bias-motivated crime after a note was left at the Baltimore County home of a family of Iraqi Muslim refugees.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, on Friday called on state and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate a note left at the family’s Dundalk home.


Zainab Chaudry speaking for CAIR in Maryland is quoted as blaming it on…you guessed it! Donald Trump!

CAIR said the hate message, left on the door of the family’s home, said, “Terrorist, Leave, No one wants you here, Your kind is a disgrace, 9/11 was your fault.”

The message also included a crude drawing of a Muslim woman wearing a head scarf (hijab) and holding a bomb, with the comment, “Take that (expletive) off your head.”

The victim’s father, who’s family recently found refuge in the U.S. and speaks very little English, said he’s worried about his family’s safety after his 11-year-old daughter received the note.

“Now, I am scared and worried about my child,” the victim’s father, Raad Lalqaraghuli, said. “I was scared, no sleeping.”

The Washington-based civil rights organization said the targeting of the Maryland Muslim family is the latest in a series of hate incidents directed at American Muslims, mosques and Islamic centers nationwide in the past week.

At this point I felt bad for this Muslim family (no sympathy for CAIR!)…..

But, now get this! The police already investigated and determined it was a squabble between CHILDREN!

Continue reading:

Baltimore County police have determined that a dispute between children led to an offensive note left on at the apartment of a Muslim family.


Officers were able to identify a 14-year-old girl, whose family lives in the same building, as the person who wrote the note. When officers met with the girl and her parents, she stated that she wrote the note because two of the children in the family had “cursed at her and made offensive gestures.”

Officers explained to the girl and the family the seriousness of what she had done. The girl’s parents were cooperative and assured officers that they would handle the matter at home.

The investigation indicated that while the note was offensive, that no crime had happened.

“This is nothing that happened as a result of an organized hate group this was a dispute between two children,” Baltimore County police spokeswoman Elise Armacost.

So if you stopped reading at paragraph ten, you would never know this!

By the way, Dundalk is a poor suburb of Baltimore and it is no surprise that resettlement contractors likely placed the Iraqi family here.

For more on Zainab Choudry, I wrote about her here in 2013 at Potomac Tea Party Report.

Federal Refugee contractor World Relief (Evangelicals!) has a new Prez

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2016

And, they must be sending out little press releases about him and the organization as fillers for small news outlets because I’ve seen several puff pieces like this one lately.


Scott Arbeiter, the new Prez of World Relief. We assume he makes about the same salary as his predecessor—around $200,000 from all sources of income. That is small compared to many other of the federal contractors.

But, it reminded me that I hadn’t done an updated financial review of them as I had recently on Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service and the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI).

The new President is Scott Arbeiter, you can learn a little about him here.

BTW, World Relief’s full name is World Relief Corporation of National Association of Evangelicals. It is headquartered in Baltimore, MD.

Here is a bit of the puff-piece at Christianity Today:

World Relief, a Christian humanitarian organization, resettled in the United States nearly twice the number of refugees than usual.


In September, World Relief settled 1,400 refugees through churches and its 26 offices across the country. In the past year, the organization has worked with 9,759 refugees, the largest number of refugees to go through its office since 1999, according to Christianity Today, having partnered with 1,180 congregations.


World Relief is one of nine organizations authorized by the federal government to help resettle refugees. Others include Church World Service, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), Episcopal Migration Ministries, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

I laughed at the use of the word “authorized” as if WR only had to get an authorization (a stamp of approval) and then was completely operating with Christian ‘charity’ instead of mostly federal tax dollars.  This is how they spin the lazy media, never mentioning that this is a business—a business that could not function without your money!

Incidentally, it is World Relief  (a member in good standing of the Christian LEFT) that sent around a memo to staff over a year ago to tell them to not give out any R & P Abstracts for any of you calling looking for the plan for your local community.

Checking the most recent Form 990 for World Relief we see that they had a total gift/grants income of $58,487,081 and $42,589,050 was provided by you, the US taxpayer, making their federally-funded share of their budget 73% taxpayer funded.

I went back 6 years and their income from you jumped about $11.5 million over that time.  That of course correlates with the fact that they placed more refugees into your towns each year and since they are paid by the head, that makes sense.

Here is a screen shot of page 9 (this info. is usually on page 9) of World Relief’s most recent 990.  You can find several years of WR’s 990’s here if you want to have a deeper look into their finances.  All IRS 501(c)3 organizations are required to make their financial information public, so remember that if you are trying to get Form 990s for a local group.




Take note of line 2 a (Travel loan commission).  I told you about that money the other day.  It is yours too. The contractor acts as a collection agency for refugees to pay back their travel loans (federal dollars paid for the tickets) and the contractor (WR in this case) gets to keep a cut of everything they collect.

Is World Relief working where you live.  Go here to access their interactive map:

New refugee seeding site: Youngstown, Ohio

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2016

We have been trying to identify the new resettlement sites the US State Department has been bragging about.  They are very secretive about where they want to go next, but they need new sites as they wear out their welcome in long established sites and because Obama has determined that the numbers are being vastly expanded for FY2017 which is already underway.


Mrosko was involved with the Welcoming Cleveland initiative we mentioned here in 2013. There are about 600 refugees being placed in Cleveland now.

There is no list one can access (they have mentioned 47). There are only stories like this one that sneak into local news that tip us off as to where they want to go next.  For new readers, Catholic Charities would be a subcontractor of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The Catholics in Youngstown must have run out of poor Americans to care for there.

From WKBN News  (hat tip: Joanne):

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Catholic Diocese of Youngstown held a community forum to discuss the thought of bringing refugees to Youngstown.

About 200 people, both for and against the idea, attended the meeting at Saint Columba Hall Wednesday night.

It was an opportunity for those who are enthusiastic about the possibility of refugee resettlement, as well as those who may be resistant to the idea, to learn more about the issue, ask questions and engage in a dialogue.


“Maybe 25 to 30 people, which is not that many, and help them by being involved in the work of the Catholic Charities here,” said Cleveland Migration and Refugee Services Director Thomas Mrosco.

On that last point, we have been led to believe that a new resettlement site cannot be established unless it starts with 50 refugees in the first year.  Then, like it or not, the pattern is that the next year they will get 100-150 until they are like the town of Lancaster, PA be swamped with 700 needed third worlders arriving every year!

See our ‘Ten things you need to know if you are ‘welcoming’ refugees for the first time.’  Once a site is opened, there will be no going back and your town will not get to pick from the ethnic groups the DOS is bringing in.

Here is the original list of sites, click here.  And here, below, are the new sites we have identified so far:

Asheville, NC

Rutland, VT

Reno, NV

Ithaca, NY

Missoula, MT

Aberdeen, SD

Charleston, WV

Fayetteville, AR

Blacksburg, VA

Pittsfield, MA

Northhampton, MA

Flint, MI

Bloomington, IN

Traverse City, MI

Watertown, NY (maybe)

Trump should have mentioned Mama Merkel’s mess as migrants sue German government

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

German Chancellor Angela Merkel flung Germany’s gates open wide over a year ago and the world poured in.


Hillary Clinton and Angela Merkel must never be permitted to serve together as leaders of two great world powers!

With tens of thousands seeking asylum (permanent refugee status), the German government gave them a temporary status until their claims could be processed.  That temporary status came with a stipulation that they could not bring their extended family members until granted permanent asylum.

Since then, thousands of refugees have successfully sued using international law.

Beware America!  This is why protecting our national sovereignty is so important!  We cannot permit any treaties or agreements that would allow foreign courts to dictate immigration/refugee policy here (but we may be doing that already!).

What is happening to Germany is why we need to revisit any such agreements if Donald Trump is elected President in a few short weeks.

Here is the news that should be concerning for all Western nations who wish to remain free.

More than 17,000 refugees have complained against the partial asylum status, known as subsidiary protection, offered by the German Government.

On arrival in Germany refugees are given the form of asylum from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF).

But the partial status which means they are safe from being deported, includes a two year ban on families coming to join them.

In the first eight months of this year 90 per cent of refugees who challenged the subsidiary protection status won their case and were granted full rights under the Geneva Refugee Convention.
