Refugee industry advocates flailing at Trump as he breaks the “assembly line” in to the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 8, 2018

I’m not going to spend the time this morning going tit-for-tat with refugee advocates whose only line of argument, about changes being made in the US Refugee Admissions Program, is to attack the President as a hateful, bigoted, racist boob.

bill-frelick

Frelick: The Trump administration has slowed down refugee admissions by throwing sand into the gears of resettlement processing.

I guess people, like Bill Frelick at Human Rights Watch, assumed the program was running like a well-oiled machine as refugees by the hundreds of thousands (some not even real refugees) were being secretly placed in US communities while the federal resettlement contractors sucked down billions of dollars (including fat CEO salaries) from unwilling taxpayers who they then labeled as, what else, racist Islamophobic boobs, if they dared to question the process.

Is Bill Frelick, in his screed at the Los Angeles Times, saying the program had no flaws and critics like me over the years have been complaining about nothing?

I guess so when he quotes Barbara Strack (retired USCIS refugee bureaucrat) referring to the “assembly line” in a piece entitled:

Trump’s brutal refugee program reflects prejudice instead of compassion

“The process works like the assembly line in a factory,” Barbara Strack, who retired in January as chief of the Refugee Affairs Division at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, told the New York Times. “This fiscal year, the administration essentially ‘broke’ the assembly line in multiple places at the same time.”

An assembly line shoved down citizens’ throats for nearly four decades!

Yes, they have had an assembly line since shortly after 1980 and that is why the program has created anger and controversy as American citizens, who pay the bills and have to live with the destabilizing results in community after community across America, feel left out and are now asking questions and demanding change.

Elections have consequences.

Frelick and his morally superior pals in the industry should admit there are problems and work to reform the program rather than take cheap shots at the President and his nominee to head the Bureau of Population Refugees and Migration.

They won’t though, even if they know deep down that there are problems, because they are one-trick ponies and apparently none are brave enough to break from the Leftist herd mentality.

Media “fact checks” Senator who said more than half of Muslims in Australia are not in the labor force

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 4, 2018

Don’t you just love it when the Left leaning media pounces on a number given by a Senator they obviously despise, does a “fact check,” proclaims him “wrong” in a headline and proceeds then to reveal some facts to show that he was pretty darn close when he said 56% of Australian Muslims are not in the labor force.

Here is the story at ABC News Australia with some very interesting facts about the pathetic numbers of Muslims working in that country.  Conclusion: Muslim women (home cranking out babies) are dragging their numbers down!

Under Trump, Muslim refugees from Burma (Rohingya) are numero uno

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 3, 2018

I told you the other day that we had a slight increase in the number of refugees entering the US in the month of May.  The number is still way below what the refugee contractors*** need to assure that their federally funded budgets are flush with your involuntary contributions via Washington.

Today I checked Wrapsnet (FY18 data) for the Muslim refugee numbers and learned this:

The percentage of Muslims entering as refugees is way down compared to Bush and Obama years.  It now stands at 15% when it was approaching 50% under Barack Hussein Obama.

(Total admissions so far 14,321 and 2,184 are listed as Muslims of some sect or another.)

But….

 

Rohingya refugees mostly women

See my Rohingya Reports category with 224 previous posts:   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/category/rohingya-reports/

 

…much to my surprise I see that Burmese Muslims (Rohingya) top the list!

Somali refugee becomes first Lord Mayor of an English city

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 1, 2018

Over ten years ago I reported that an Imam was bragging in Saudi Arabia that America would be electing Muslim mayors in droves (30 by 2015, he said). His prediction has not materialized here so far, but it looks like the Hijrah is moving ahead at a rapid pace in the UK where the English people have apparently given up.

(The Tommy Robinson episode demonstrates that better than anything).

Here is The Independent headline (with a bit of the story):

Meet Sheffield’s new mayor, the black, Muslim, former refugee whose viral inauguration photo charmed the world: ‘I’ll be doing things differently’

When I’m ushered into his parlour, the new Lord Mayor of Sheffield is sat with his feet on his desk, firing off emails about creating a post of Sheffield Poet Laureate.

Despite the rarified surroundings – mahogany furniture, upholstered sofas, fine china teacups – he swears like a Yorkshire trooper and laughs infectiously. He is still wearing his Dr Martens and his ceremonial chain.

Screenshot (478).png

Charlene White is a 37-year-old British journalist, not a teeny bopper. Bye! Bye! UK

“It’s a good accessory,” he smiles.

Asked how he feels about the global reaction to his now famous official inauguration photo, Councillor Magid Magid’s response is as unorthodox as the image itself.

“Mate… f*****g hell…” he tells The Independent, still apparently struggling for words. “It’s been surreal. Mad. I wasn’t expecting any of this.”

The 28-year-old’s election as the South Yorkshire city’s official first citizen last week made headlines around the world. He has received messages of goodwill from people as far and wide as New York and Syria. ITV News anchor Charlene White declared on Twitter that she might be “a little bit in love”.

This is partly because of who he is and what he’s achieved. Councillor Magid is not only the city’s youngest ever lord mayor – and the first from the Green Party – he is also a Muslim former Somalian refugee who arrived in the UK at the age of five, unable to speak English.

And it is partly because of that picture. In it, amid the shadowy, gilded confines of Sheffield’s Victorian Town Hall, he squats – complete with ceremonial chain, Dr Martens boots and wide-eyed smile – high on a balustrade.

‘If me doing this – as a black, Muslim immigrant – can spark someone to go out and change their bit of the world, that’s my job done’

“I’ve no idea why I got up there, mate,” he says. “It wasn’t planned. It was just me being myself. There’ve been [121] lord mayors before and I respect them all but I wanted to show I’ll be doing things differently. It just came out of that. I wanted to say this town belongs to all of us.”

More here.

Amazing and sad that we are alive at this critical juncture in history and witnessing an invasion of Europe that never should be happening.

Magid is doing what Islam expects him to do, it is the Charlene White’s (she is from an immigrant family too) that are making Islam’s supremacism possible.

The one thing that makes America different from the UK and other European countries is that we still have FREE SPEECH!

It is vitally important that you exercise that right! They cannot shut us all down, so please, please develop a network and talk about immigration and Islam. Develop your facebook channels, tweet, write a blog or letters to the editor. If that is too difficult at least develop an e-mail chain for family and friends and keep talking!

Lewiston, ME: Somalis gone wild

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 31, 2018

Maine First Media has posted a video taken earlier this month in Kennedy Park in Lewiston, ME, the Somali capital of New England.

Kennedy Park

No time to do more than post the news, but here are some ‘highlights.’ Visit Maine First Media for the video.

(Go here for my huge archive on Lewiston.)

Thanks to all my readers who sent me this story.

Time to take fraud in US Refugee Program more seriously; where is Congress?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 30, 2018

A former foreign service officer who worked in several capacities in the US Refugee Admissions Program around the world speaks from first hand experience when she says it is past time—way past time—for Congress to investigate the program.

After outlining examples of fraud that have been identified, Mary Doetsch says this at the Daily Caller:

It’s Time For Congress To Restore The Integrity Of The US Refugee Program

Perhaps even more disturbing than the actual fraud is the fact that this type of investigation is the exception rather than the norm. For decades, little heed has been paid to program’s extensive fraud.

unhcr sudan

Doetsch doesn’t say it, but I will. As a first step, let’s take the UN out of the process and if we are going to resettle refugees, let’s use American experts to make the decisions. Will save us a bundle of money too!

As a former refugee coordinator who served throughout the Middle East, Africa, Russia and Cuba, I saw first-hand the flagrant abuses and scams that permeate the refugee program. I witnessed widespread exploitation and misuse, from identity fraud to marriage and family relation scams, and from private individuals profiting from their involvement in USRAP to distortion of the actual refugee definition to ensure greater numbers of people who are really migrants are admitted as refugees.

During my own time working in this program, I watched USRAP continue to expand unchecked, seemingly without concern for whether it served the best interests of its own citizens or the country.

While refugee admissions have been declining under the Trump administration, there has been almost no focus on programmatic fraud. Midway into the 2018 fiscal year, just over a quarter of the 45,000 individuals proposed in the FY18 refugee ceiling had entered the country. This slow-down in admissions may reduce some fraud, but without structural reform, it cannot be eliminated.

Too many government officials, often under the guise of humanitarianism, have continued to disregard both the external “pay-to-play bribery schemes” of the UN along with the internal fraud within USRAP operations. The once admirable refugee program has lost its integrity and must be reformed. The USRAP is in need of a complete overhaul and it’s time for Congress to take the lead.

Read it all here.

Good luck trying to get Congress to do anything.

See what Ms. Doetsch said back in February 2017 in response to Trump’s announcement of restrictions to refugee resettlement from certain countries.

This morning as I see CNN crowing about how Trey Gowdy says the FBI did no wrong in planting someone in the Trump campaign, I am reminded of how the chicken! (yes Gowdy!) never lifted a finger to try to get to the bottom of the problems with the USRAP when he was chairman of the subcommittee responsible for overseeing the program.

New data from Pew: Americans turning more negative on refugee resettlement

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 27, 2018

My subtitle:

Nearly half of US Catholics believe it is not our responsibility to resettle refugees

Most of the media blames the change in attitude on Trump’s rhetoric, but I think there has been a sea change in media reporting.  There is more and more news available to the general public about the kinds of things I mentioned in my previous post this morning—stories about refugees scamming our welfare programs for example that previously were not published, but are now spread widely by social media!

Erol Kekic with mug

Erol Kekic of Church World Service:  “We have seen an unfortunate rise in xenophobia globally.”

Ten years ago (nearly 11 now) when I first began writing this blog, stories in the media about refugees were in the genre I called ‘Refugees see first snow’ stories!  All were meant to paint refugees in only the most glowing terms.

Now we do see more crime stories like food stamp fraud, Medicaid fraud etc, but also stories about refugee-perpetrated violent crimes and terrorism in the US and around the world.

Here is USA Today on the Pew numbers:

Fewer Americans believe U.S. should accept refugees

Fewer Americans believe the U.S. has a responsibility to accept refugees, a shift that has been spurred by President Trump’s efforts to limit them from entering the country, according to a poll released Thursday.

More than half of Americans — 51% — still believe the United States should welcome immigrants fleeing violence and persecution in their home countries, according to the poll conducted by the non-partisan Pew Research Center. But that number is down from 56% during a similar survey in February 2017.

Maine: Somali refugees charged with welfare fraud

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 27, 2018

What else is new!  The only thing new is the change in location from Minnesota to Maine and this time it is medicaid fraud and not daycare fraud.

This news is from the Somali capital of Maine—Lewiston—and from earlier this month.

Tip of the iceberg?

From the Sun Journal (hat tip Frank):

PORTLAND — Two men from the Twin Cities charged with welfare fraud appeared in federal court Monday seeking release from jail.

Lewiston like Somalia

No mugshots of Ahmed and Osman that I could find, but figured this older photo would suffice to illustrate the story!

At an afternoon hearing, U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge John Rich III ordered Abdirashid Ahmed, 38, of Lewiston released on $5,000 bond after seizing his passport.

Rich said Ahmed would be equipped with an electronic monitoring device to ensure he does not leave Androscoggin County.

Ahmed was kept Monday night in federal custody at Cumberland County Jail. He was expected to be escorted Tuesday morning to Lewiston and released into the custody of the U.S. Probation Office. He must get permission from that office if he were to seek to leave Androscoggin County in the future, Rich said.

See what I mean! The wailing for workers is the latest PR push for refugee industry; Virginia this time!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 24, 2018

On the heels of my post yesterday, here is the first of what surely will be many stories about how refugee workers are needed for meatpackers and hotel chains—this time in Virginia.

Chobani and Soros

The economic study being cited is from the Tent Foundation a creation of Hamdi Ulukaya (Mr. Chobani Yogurt) shown here with the great promoter of cheap immigrant labor and a borderless world, George Soros.

I guess they realized the ‘humanitarian’ shtick was no longer effective, they have come right out and admitted what this is all about—workers willing to work cheap.

Here (below) is the whole flimsy Virginia Public Radio bit.

Expect to hear more of this line that by the time they are here for 20 years, refugees give back to the economy, but never any mention about how much these low wage workers with 6 children consume via welfare, schooling, medical care, housing etc. for those first 20 years!

And, it won’t be lost on our Minnesota readers who have been told time and again that the numbers are not available for what it costs the state to take care of its refugee population.

If no numbers are available, how can this Public Radio reporter say this?  Because he is mindlessly parroting the globalist Tent Foundation.

Comment worth noting is an example of what you can do for your state and country

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 24, 2018

From time to time, I post what I call “comments worth noting” that have been sent to me or in this case published on social media.

This (below) is a facebook entry from Peggy Traeger Tierney in Minnesota.

Readers ask me all the time, what can I do?  Well, this is a prime example.

Help educate your fellow citizens with a little investigative work of your own and then find a way to get it out more broadly—through facebook as Peggy has done, through twitter, via a letter to the editor, or consider writing your own blog (goodness knows we need more citizen journalists!).

In Minnesota we were told by the bright minds in the legislature that they couldn’t figure out what the refugee population there is costing the taxpayers, well here is one piece of the answer.

More recently the outrageous revelation that massive fraud had been uncovered with Somali-run publicly-supported daycare centers has Minnesotans again demanding an accounting.

You too can do this!

This post is filed in my ‘Comments Worth Noting/Guest posts’ category.

By the way, one of my top posts of all time is this one (2011) about how so many Somalis first arrived in Minnesota thanks to Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services of MN, and then World Relief.  One of the reasons those federal refugee contractors chose Minnesota—generous welfare!
