Moneybags Miliband (with Harriet) is responsible for changing Charlottesville by changing the people

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 5, 2018

That would be Charlottesville, Virginia.

When I saw the story headline at something called The Daily Progress, I initially wasn’t going to bother reading the Op-Ed by Harriet Kuhr because I figured anything with Daily Progress in it would be some commie publication.

It is, in fact, the sole daily newspaper in the Charlottesville area, and the International Rescue Committee is the only federal resettlement contractor working to change that portion of Virginia.

Opinion/Commentary: New immigration policies have been devastating

(Trump is a bad guy column!)

 

Harriet with IRC map

Here is Harriet in 2015 selling the IRC’s ‘humanitarian’ work to another unsuspecting Virginia town, a suburb of Charlottesville.  I see the map was made before the IRC captured Montana. http://www.dailyprogress.com/news/scottsville-residents-hear-about-the-challenges-of-refugee-resettlement/article_5c822e12-7b83-11e5-8fea-7b43cffc988b.html

 

But, I’m glad I read it because opinion writer and International Rescue Committee‘s face in that city, Harriet Kuhr, has an important factual error that I see repeated by the Open Borders Left whenever they get a chance.

They say that Ronald Reagan is responsible for the Refugee Act of 1980.  It just ain’t so.

He presided over it during its first year (as it admitted thousands escaping Communism), but it was the brainchild of Senator Ted Kennedy (who else!) and it was signed in to law by Jimmy Carter (who else!).  See here March 18,1980.  (It was 8 months later that Reagan whipped Carter by winning the Presidency.)

And, just so you know, when these Leftists try to make the program sound like it was a bipartisan effort they are spinning like tops.  See the list of co-sponsors to the Kennedy bill (not exactly a balanced group):

Sen. Javits, Jacob K. [R-NY]
Sen. McGovern, George [D-SD]
Sen. Randolph, Jennings [D-WV]
Sen. Pell, Claiborne [D-RI]
Sen. Ribicoff, Abraham A. [D-CT]
Sen. Moynihan, Daniel Patrick [D-NY]
Sen. Williams, Harrison A., Jr. [D-NJ]
Sen. Riegle, Donald W., Jr. [D-MI]
Sen. Sarbanes, Paul S. [D-MD]
Sen. Hatfield, Mark O. [R-OR]
Sen. Tsongas, Paul E. [D-MA]
Sen. Biden, Joseph R., Jr. [D-DE]  [To this day, Delaware only takes less than 10 refugees a year!–ed]

So here is what Harriet is trying to sell to the good citizens of Charlottesville at The Daily Progress:

Miliband in Manhattan

This is Harriet’s boss in Manhattan! British national and one-worlder, IRC CEO David Miliband, pulls down an annual salary package of $671,749 (doing well by doing good!). In 2015, the IRC received 66% of its $688,920,920 budget from US taxpayers! A “VALUED TRADITION” THAT MUST END!

The Refugee Resettlement program is one of the United States’ most valued traditions. It is the bar that sets the standard for other resettlement programs; an effort above party politics that enshrined the core common values of our nation to tackle global problems right here: that families ought to be together; that our children should have a better future than we had; that hard work, persistence, strength, and character would be treasured in our great land.  [Our children means something very different to me!—ed]

Ronald Reagan began this tradition, and his successors strengthened it. They understood that it supported our global leadership and national safety, and it stoked a humanitarian tradition, an entrepreneurial spirit, and collective economic success. [What a load of mumbo-jumbo!—ed]

This tradition is something we at IRC see come alive every day, thanks to the talented and resilient people we, and the Charlottesville community, have the opportunity to work with.

Read the rest of her pitch here and see comments.  You can see our friend Jim Simpson has jumped in.

This other commenter, Brad London, immediately goes to the sorry old ‘you are a racist’ line and yammers about the Native Americans.

If he wants to give America back to the Indians, then I want to give North Africa and most of the Middle East back to its early inhabitants (before the Muslim invaders came)—to Christians and Jews!

 

Here is screenshot of the Simpson/London exchange. If you want to get in on the action, click here.

Simpson v. London

 

See my archive on the International Rescue Committee here. It is the financially largest of the nine contractors that are paid to place refugees in to your towns and cities.

(Numbers in parenthesis below are the percentages of their funds that come involuntarily from you).

And, I will continue to repeat: as long as taxpayers pay for fake non-profit groups like these to distribute refugees around the country and then to politically organize against us (who disagree with them), the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program will never be reformed.

“Diversity is strength” says Minnesota mayor!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 4, 2018

Be careful what you wish for! 

Haven’t you all seen what is happening to Canada since the boy wonder just north of your border said the same thing?

Marv Calvin

Willmar mayor Marv Calvin. Willmar open for business—for Jenny-O turkey slaughterhouse.

They are rolling out the welcome mat in Minnesota (and not just for the NFL).

Come to think about it, the NFL has put its faith in that rag-tag Minneapolis PD (yikes!).

From the Star Tribune:

City leaders across Minnesota are passing “welcoming” resolutions in an effort to send a message that their communities are inclusive amid growing national tension around the issue of immigration.

City councils in Willmar and St. Joseph, two central Minnesota cities that are becoming increasingly diverse, are expected to discuss resolutions Monday. The measures don’t change policy but are considered symbolic.

“This resolution will just tell everybody ‘We want you in Willmar,’ ” Mayor Marv Calvin said, adding he expects the resolution will pass.

It isn’t America First! or Minnesota First! It is M-O-N-E-Y First!

“Willmar’s strength is in its diversity,” Calvin said. “If people feel they’re not welcome to a community, that’s detrimental to economic development.”

Willmar, a city of nearly 20,000 residents two hours west of Minneapolis, has long had a large Latino population. In recent years, it has also seen a growing number of immigrants from East African nations. Calvin said the newcomers have helped the city flourish with new businesses.

But the resolution isn’t meant just for immigrants and first-generation Americans. It also is designed to send a message to people who were born in Willmar or used to live there that they should return, he said.

Dahir-Adan-knife-police-line

He stabbed ten before an off-duty police officer killed him.   https://www.sctimes.com/story/news/local/2016/09/17/reports-several-hurt-crossroads-center-incident/90607870/

“Willmar is open for business,” he added.

***Update*** See CAIR organizing in Willmar, here.

In St. Joseph, residents formed a group called Cultural Bridges more than a year ago to build connections, especially between Christians and Muslims and the town’s Somali refugees and longtime residents after a Somali man stabbed*** 10 people at the Crossroads Center mall in nearby St. Cloud in 2016.

Since then, the group has taught adult basic education classes, provided homework tutoring and launched a jobs search program for Somali immigrants.

The group will ask the City Council on Monday to consider a welcoming resolution. It also plans to post fliers affirming inclusivity after white nationalist posters were plastered across the city illegally. [See posters here.—ed]

“The City Council has a great opportunity. … This is not something that should be met with silence,” said Raj Chaphalkar, a member of the group. “It may seem obvious, but sometimes we need leaders to say [these words] out loud. This is a good place to be for everybody.”

More here.

We have a massive archive on Minnesota where resettlement of Somalis began in earnest about 30 years ago thanks to resettlement contractors: Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services and World Relief.  I’ve been there twice now myself.

***They like knives.  Just ask the young white woman attacked and stabbed by a man described as Somali (still on the loose?) recently. Her story was in my top three stories of last month, see here.

Kansas: Refugee office to close in “slaughterhouse” city

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 2, 2018

From time to time I’ve posted stories on refugee resettlement offices closing due to the fact that fewer refugees (aka paying clients) are now arriving in the US (see post yesterday with latest numbers), but I don’t post all of them.

david Miliband manahattan

Moneybags Miliband (here in Manhattan) makes nearly $700,000 annually as CEO of the IRC, but they can’t afford to keep this Kansas office open.  Fine by me, but do any of you humanitarians out there find this a bit disconcerting?

This one caught my eye because I have written many times over the years about Garden City, Kansas and its Tyson Foods plant that has attracted cheap immigrant labor for years.

Rarely do you see such a direct connection drawn between “slaughterhouse” jobs and the US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP).

This time it is the giant International Rescue Committee closing its doors in GC, while its CEO (a British national based in Manhattan) pulls down a salary in excess of $600,000 a year (here).

Changing the heartland, one meatpacker at a time should be the USRAP’s motto!

From KCUR 89.3:

A humanitarian [ha!ha!—ed] group that helps refugees settle in western Kansas among plentiful slaughterhouse jobs is shutting down its office in the region amid changing rules that welcome fewer newcomers to the country and the state.

The International Rescue Committee, or IRC, says a falling number of refugees prompted the agency’s plans to shutter its Garden City office at the end of September.

Kansas took in 580 refugees in the 12-month period that ended Sept. 30, compared to 914 the year before. IRC officials said they expect the drop-off to look even more dramatic this year.

That trend reflects tightening U.S. State Department guidelines that make it harder for refugees to seek sanctuary in the United States.

 

In addition, a State Department spokeswoman said that in December the department told resettlement agencies it would withdraw funding from sites that take on fewer than one hundred refugees each year. The federal government gives those local agencies about $2,100 for each refugee.

This next bit was news to me.  I had no idea local hospitals were carrying some of the refugee care load jointly with a federal resettlement contractor! Why isn’t Tyson Foods taking care of the needs of its workers?

Many refugees in western Kansas turn to Kearny County Hospital in Lakin, Kansas, for health and social services. The hospital, in turn, depends on the IRC to take care of essential services such as food, housing, education and job placement, said hospital CEO Benjamin Anderson.

Garden City USA: Immigration to the Heartland

Orientation for Somali workers at Garden City Tyson Foods plant.

[….]

Anderson said the IRC plays the primary role for helping refugees in the area, and when the organization’s Garden City office closes, his hospital may have to take over some of its services.

Garden City is home to many refugees, including a large Somali community, which was the target of an alleged bomb plot last year. That incident and it’s upcoming trial in March have brought renewed attention to the city’s wide range of immigrants — a portion of whom are refugees — from Mexico, South America and Africa. In the local school district, for example, English is a second language for nearly half the students.

So who is paying for refugee support services so that Tyson Foods has a ready supply of cheap labor—local taxpayers!

But, don’t get too excited about a possible slowdown of needy people arriving in Garden City because we expect to hear that Tyson Foods will bus in migrants from other places to satisfy their desire for “slaughterhouse” workers.

Hey, I’ve been referring to them in a more sanitized way—meatpackers—I like this more descriptive word—slaughterhouse!

Unlikely aborted deportation flight to Somali will ever be rescheduled, as court steps in

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 31, 2018

A federal judge in Florida has blocked the government from deporting the 92 Somalis who made it to West Africa before some yet-to-be-explained glitch caused their deportation flight to return to the US.  See previous posts here and here.

The usual argument is being raised that we can’t possibly return migrants who have committed crimes in the US back to S***hole countries. It would be inhumane, immigrant activists claim.

So, what this says to me is, if we will be barred from sending lawbreakers back, then we must vigorously keep them out of the US in the first place through robust screening. 

Otherwise, taxpayers will be expected to pay for their incarceration for years!

From Courthouse News:

Darrin-P-Gayles

Judge Gayles:   https://ballotpedia.org/Darrin_P._Gayles

MIAMI (CN) – A federal judge temporarily blocked the government from deporting a group of Somali immigrants who say they were shackled and handcuffed for two days by immigration officials during a failed deportation attempt last month.

In a ruling issued Friday in Miami federal court, U.S. District Judge Darrin Gayles said that the 92 Somali immigrants have the right to reopen their removal orders because they are looking “to apply or re-apply for asylum or withholding of deportation based on changed circumstances arising in the country of nationality or in the country to which deportation has been ordered.”

[….]

For decades, Somali nationals were rarely deported from the U.S. mainly because their country lacks a “functioning central government,” according to Gayles’ 14-page ruling, but Immigration and Customs Enforcement began deporting Somalis more often after changes to U.S. policies last year under the Trump administration.

Of course they blame it on Trump, but Obama was deporting Somalis as we told you here in 2013, and in 2005 the US Supreme Court said the US can send aliens back to where they came from—even to hellhole countries.

The botched deportation is now used as a further excuse about why they face threats in Somalia:

The immigrants argue that the international media attention surrounding the botched deportation has made it unsafe for them to return to Somalia because they would be targets of the extremist group Al-Shabaab, which believes that people returning to Somalia after living in Western nations for a long period of time are enemies of their cause.

[….]

U.S. law prohibits the deportation of individuals to countries where they could face political persecution or torture.

I bet those sneaky immigration lawyers never told the Judge that the Supreme Court said in 2005 that such deportations were legal, see here.   The fact that the Bush Administration didn’t do it, doesn’t make it a law!

Lisa Lehner, a senior litigation attorney with Americans for Immigrant Justice, said in a statement that “the court’s thorough review of what it termed the ‘exceptional circumstances’ of this case reveals a depth of understanding of the plight of these individuals.”

The Somali immigrants are represented by Americans for Immigrant Justice, the American Civil Liberties Union, University of Miami Law Clinic, University of Minnesota Law School’s Center for New Americans and Broward Legal Aid.

More here.

My prediction: This batch will be released back into your towns and cities.  Minnesota here they come!

Lancaster, PA: Church World Service puts on sob story event, never mentions their federal boodle!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 29, 2018

CWS_small2Church World Service, one of the nine major federal resettlement contractors***, paraded ‘refugees’ before the public in a media event designed to put-down the President (and by extension, you, who voted for him!).

This isn’t pick-on-Church-World-Service week, but they seem to be conspicuously out in front leading the Open Borders political activism (along with their friends at HIAS) recently.

See my previous posts, here and here (see if your church is a member of CWS demonstrating with CAIR).

In Lancaster (Amish country) they put on one of many events as part of their first anniversary bash-Trump campaign to gain support for more refugee admissions (for more paying clients for them).

 

Here is Lancaster Online:

Three years ago, Palestinian writer Emtiaz Zourob said goodbye to her husband and two children and fled Gaza after being warned her life was in danger because of her views.

U.S. authorities granted her asylum and led her to believe her family would be able to join her in Lancaster, where she was resettled.

Palestinian in Lancaster

CWS’s Palestinian poster girl can’t understand how America could have elected “this man.”

Then, with election of Donald Trump as president, Zourob’s hopes for family reunification crashed. [Family reunification=chain migration.—ed]

On Saturday, one year after Trump suspended admittance of people from seven Muslim-majority countries, including Palestinians, Zourob told her story at a Church World Service forum on refugees.

About 60 attended the panel discussion at Lancaster Theological Seminary. Refugees from Congo, Somalia and Sudan also told their stories.

I have a lot of questions about Zourob’s story.  First and foremost she must have gotten in to the US on her own (illegally?) in order to have applied for asylum.  How did she do that? Who paid her way? What is the real story here? And, then if her family is in Egypt (no longer in ‘dangerous’ Gaza) surely she can join them there.

Lancaster Online continues….

Zourob, in an interview, said that in 2016 her husband, son and 10-year-old daughter applied for asylum at the U.S. embassy in Cairo and expected to obtain visas granting them entry. 

Zourob, 37, hoped she would be seeing them soon and told friends in Gaza she liked the United States.

“I told them I feel like I’m home because all the people here, they are very nice with me,” she said. “But after Trump, I’m not sure about this actually, if it’s still my home or not.”

“It’s very difficult to explain, but the American people, they choose this man to lead America,” she said.

Go here for more on CWS’s Lancaster PR campaign.

A Church World Service rep once told me that they get the first refugees planted (no he didn’t use that word) and then follow-up in subsequent years with helping bring in the family.

For additional information see our archive on Lancaster (America’s refugee capital?) by clicking here.

CWS fuck

Do your tax dollars pay for political action by ‘loving’ Christians like this one?

Why is Church World Service really so worked up? 

The answer is that they are paid millions of dollars annually from the federal treasury for their ‘Christian good works’ and Trump is cutting off the money train.

How much exactly are they getting from the Department of State, the Department of Health and Human Services, HUD, Homeland Security, and the Defense Department? You can find out at USASpending.gov.

First I looked at their federal grants and contracts for FY2008 to FY2018 and this is what I found (screenshot of first page below):

Forget ‘humanitarianism!’ This is about M-O-N-E-Y!

Nearly $450 MILLION since 2008 for Church World Service alone!

 

Screenshot (174)

This is just the first page of many pages!

 

 

So what did they get (involuntarily) from your wallets in FY2017 (end of Obama and beginning of Trump presidencies.)  Screenshots below are of three pages for FY17:

 

Screenshot (175)

Screenshot (177)

Screenshot (178)

 

Now, see why they are so upset!

Look at USA Spending for the first 3 months of FY18 (Fiscal years begin Oct. 1 of previous year).

For 3 months, only $171,950 in sub-grants!

Yikes! No wonder they are working so hard against this President!

 

Screenshot (181)

 

***Church World Service is just one of the nine (and not one of the largest recipients of your generosity)!  This was so much fun, I think I’ll try to do more of these!

The number in parenthesis is the portion of their budget that you involuntarily pay!

Forget about their pawn Zourob, they cannot survive without federal boodle!

Somali who stabbed two in Mall of America in November says it was an act of Jihad

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 28, 2018

Americans will not be safe as long as “your country is at war with Islam.”

(Mahad Abdiaziz Adbiraham)

 

But, surprise! Authorities have not yet decided to bring terrorism charges against him.

For background on Adbiraham, go here.

Below (hat tip Bob) is the latest on the case.  Interestingly, the victims (the Sanchez brothers) are out of the country, but promise to return for the sentencing.  Hmmm? We will see if they do return next month.

From KSTP.com:

On Thursday, 20-year-old Mahad Abdiaziz Adbiraham pleaded guilty to stabbing two men at the Mall of America.

mahad-abdiaziz-abdirahman-mugshot (1)

Adbiraham is most likely a refugee, or the child of a refugee, because almost all Somalis in the US are here through the US Refugee Admissions Program.

The incident occurred on Nov. 12, where authorities say he stabbed two brothers in a dressing room at the mall’s Macy’s.

At the plea hearing Thursday, Abdiraham’s attorney read a statement — which is public record — to the courtroom, which explained why he attacked the two men.

In the statement, Abdiraham said he went to the Mall of America to answer the “call for jihad by the Chief of Believer, Abu-bakr Al-baghdadi, may Allah protect him, and by the Mujahiden of the Islamic State.”

The statement added, “I understand that the two men I stabbed know and have explained the reason for my attack, and I am here reaffirming that it was indeed an act of Jihad in the way of Allah.”

Abdiraham also said in the statement that Americans will not be safe as long as “your country is at war with Islam.”

Omar Jamal is back! Longtime readers know that I have followed his ‘career’ as the Somali mouthpiece for a decade! Click here for my huge archive on him.

Omar Jamal, an activist with a Somali watchdog group, said he is aware of the statement.

“This is a widespread sentiment with Somali youth,” he said.

Incredible! Jamal says if you stop them leaving the country for Jihad, they will do it here!

Jamal said the federal government’s effort to make it difficult for would-be jihadists to travel abroad and join a terrorist group has had unintended consequences locally.

“What is very concerning in this instance, is the fact that youth are exploring more ‘How can I do something here, what weapons are accessible,'” he said.

[….]

The two victims are out of the country, but court documents say they plan to return in time for Abdiraham’s sentencing in February.

If? If?

If authorities determine the stabbing was an act of terrorism, there could be more legal consequences for Abdirahahm.

More here.

So when they tell us, why aren’t we listening?

Church World Service and HIAS join CAIR to protest at White House

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 28, 2018

We told you here that three US federal (taxpayer funded!) resettlement contractors were helping to organize a protest against the President’s so-called Muslim ban yesterday.

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service activists were likely lurking, but Church World Service and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) were front and center of the small gathering.

Breitbart’s Penny Starr reported the news.  Here is an enhanced screenshot photo from that report.

 

Screenshot (168)_LI

Muslims (men) pray outside the White House surrounded by large numbers of Church World Service female activists. The big banner on the right is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society protest-march prop that they bring out for these events.

 

Here is what Starr reported:

Protesters gathered at Lafayette Park outside the White House on Saturday to slam President Donald Trump on the one-year anniversary of an executive order he issued to protect Americans from immigrants and refugees coming from terror-ridden countries with little or no vetting.

CAIR spokesman calls Trump Admin. white supremacists as all the white folk gathered around.

Robert McCaw 2

McCaw works it all in (including support for Black Lives Matter)!

“We strongly condemn, like you, the racist and white supremacist beliefs reflected in President Trump’s remarks, actions and programs by this Muslim ban, the cancelling of DACA, the labeling of Black Lives Matter as identity extremists — a false designation,” Robert McCaw, director of Government Affairs Department of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said at the protest.

“We will fight the white supremacy of this administration,” McCaw said.

Church World Service is 71% federally funded (by my most recent accounting, here). Its CEO makes a quarter of a million annually.

CWS_small2

What an insult that we fund them millions of our dollars every year for decades!

If you belong to any of these churches (below) know that Church World Service was representing you outside the White House yesterday.

They also hold the annual “Crop Walk,” so if you disagree with their political tactics you need to start speaking up!

Refugee contractor CEO (moneybags) Miliband moans: shocking decline in Muslim arrivals

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 27, 2018

The nine federally funded refugee contractors*** never miss a media opportunity.

Last night I reported that several of them will be protesting against the President at the White House today (first anniversary of first ban) and others, like the International Rescue Committee are moaning to the media with press statements like this one:

IRC: Trump Administration on Track to Miss Own Target for Refugee Admissions

First, let’s set the record straight!

When the President sets a CEILING for the coming year, it is just that—a CEILING, or CAP—it is not a TARGET that must be reached.

Although the contractors, for the many years I have followed the program, want it to be a TARGET and so they continue to speak as if it is (as in this headline).

Here is some of what CEO and British national David Miliband wants the media to know:

What a surprise! Obama admitted many more Muslims than Trump!

International Rescue Committee (IRC) resettlement assessment shows disturbing data for vulnerable populations fleeing conflict and persecution

miliband laughing

Miliband not laughing now? I wonder will he have to take a pay cut as the numbers of paying clients (aka refugees) decline. He makes a whopping $671,749 annual salary running a federally funded ‘non-profit.’   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/12/23/al-qaeda-and-isis-wont-love-us-if-we-close-more-refugee-offices-waaahhhh/

Based on current trends, the IRC projects 21,292 refugees will be resettled in the United States in Fiscal Year 2018, far below the Trump administration’s 45,000 refugee cap.

By this time in FY 2017, Syrians fleeing the war comprised 15 percent of arrivals in the U.S; in FY 2018, they comprise 0.5 percent.

13 percent of refugee arrivals in FY 2018 identify as Muslim, compared to 48 percent in FY 2017.

New York, NY, January 25, 2018 — On the eve of the anniversary of the Trump administration’s travel ban, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) today released projected figures for refugee resettlement in the United States. The IRC’s analysis shows the nation’s resettlement program on track to resettle only 21,292 refugees in Fiscal Year 2018, well below the administration’s 45,000 cap, and far below the historic annual average of 95,000.

[…..]

The analysis is based on data covering the period Oct. 1, 2017, through Jan. 23, 2018.

Said David Miliband, IRC president and CEO –

“The shocking figures we are releasing today show that the U.S. is on track to cut by three quarters the number of refugees allowed into the country for resettlement.

This is a dramatic shift from 30 years of bipartisan practice, and represents an unprecedented assault on U.S. global leadership in this area.

[It still has bipartisan support from members of Congress/Senators who want cheap labor for their big business constituents.—ed]

“It is no exaggeration that the future of America as a home for refugees is now on the line. Congress needs to hold the administration to account for missing its own target, announced just four months ago. [It is NOT a target.—ed]

“The administration’s determination to squeeze the life out of the refugee resettlement program will harm the lives, and life chances, of some of the most vulnerable people on the planet, and it sets a terrible moral example to the rest of the world.”

[….]

Shocking Decline in Muslim Arrivals

791 refugees identifying as Muslim comprise only 13 percent of all refugees admitted to the U.S. so far in FY 2018.

By comparison, 14,496 people identifying as Muslim, or 48 percent of all refugees, were admitted to the U.S in FY 2017 in the same period. [Obama’s last months in office.—ed]

13 percent represents a figure well below the historic average; Pew Research analysis found that in the 15-year period from 2002 to 2017, Muslims made up about 33 percent of all refugees admitted to the U.S.

Yikes! I had no idea that the number was so high—33% of all refugees since 9/11 have been Muslims. Wow!

See my complete archive on Miliband (friend of Soros and Hillary) by clicking here.

***LOL! I get to post the contractors twice today.  My goal is to be sure new readers (and long time readers) know each day who is responsible for resettling refugees in your towns while acting as political agitators at the same time.  These are the nine federal contractors that monopolize all US resettlement. Number in parenthesis is the percentage of federal dollars (your money) going to their budgets in the last complete analysis I did.

Don’t miss this post about Church World Service yesterday—community agitators of the most loving kind!

A reader asks: Who is resettling refugees in North Carolina?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 27, 2018

And, part 2 of reader Robert’s question was: How can I find out where those Aussie detainees will be placed in my state?

Robert’s question was in response to this post:

Flight glitch causes some delay as Australia’s rejected ‘refugees’ head to US

I’m glad he asked because it reminds me that there are so many people reading RRW now who haven’t been with me for the last almost 11 years and so they have missed information previously posted.

First, a reminder that at the top of RRW (under the header) is a page entitled: FAQS! Finding Stuff.  I think most of you will find something useful there. And, if you are just relying on e-mail notices about each of my posts and not coming to the blog, you are missing a lot.  (Even if you aren’t on twitter, if you come to RRW you will see my twitter feed in the right hand column and see other related news that I don’t have time to post!)

Linked in FAQS! is the US State Department’s State-by-State index of refugee contractors working in your states. I don’t know how thorough they are with keeping it updated, you may find errors in contact information and phone numbers.

Writing about NC reminds me: Does anyone know whatever happened to the Burmese biter who was being resettled in NC last spring?   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/05/28/burmese-biter-was-headed-for-new-bern-nc-are-we-importing-mentally-ill-in-refugee-program/

But, before I post the offices in North Carolina—a state with a huge number of contractors at work—on the issue of where the Australian rejected ‘refugees’ are going, I doubt you will find out.

If you called each office in NC, they will tell you you can’t have that information (privacy). The only possibility of finding out is if some local newspaper is inquisitive enough, but expect any story to be of the squishy PC variety.

You might consider contacting your members of Congress and see if they can find out. They likely won’t have any more luck than you, but it will be a good lesson (for them) in how this program is run so secretively.

Also, since there are large numbers of Burmese refugees in NC already, look to the Rohingya (Burmese Muslims) we have been told are coming from Australia to be placed in Burmese communities even though we know that Burmese Christians fear the Rohingya refugees.

The Burmese Rohingya Muslims are not on the Trump “banned” countries list.

Eight of nine federal contractors*** are working in North Carolina attesting to the fact that the state has rolled out the welcome mat!

Here are screenshots of the federal contractors’ contact information for North Carolina (a state they are turning blue through immigration).

In the left hand corner, as in this first screenshot, is each subcontractor’s primary contractor.

See the contractor list at the end of this post. The only tricky one is Episcopal Migration Ministries which often hides behind its other name: Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (DFMS).

Knowledge is power!

I urge all of you to use the FAQS! here at the top of the page and do some research. Then type your state’s name into my search window and find out what I’ve reported from your state during the last ten plus years!

***These are the nine federal contractors that monopolize all US resettlement. Only the IRC is absent from NC. Number in parenthesis is the amount of federal dollars (your money) going to their budgets.

Don’t miss this post about Church World Service yesterday.

Taxpayer-funded refugee contractors lead anti-Trump rally in DC tomorrow

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 26, 2018

The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) tweeted to come on out to Washington DC tomorrow to ‘celebrate’ the one year anniversary of the President’s first so-called Muslim “ban.”

Here is the facebook page for the event.  If you happen to be in the DC area you might want to swing by and have a look-see.  Take pictures if you do!

(Highlighting is mine)

PRAYER. RALLY. MARCH.

ADVOCATES AND ALLIES TO FORM HUMAN CHAIN AROUND MUSLIM PRAYER AT RALLY MARKING ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S FIRST MUSLIM AND REFUGEE BAN

Impacted refugees, leaders, and dozens of organizations rally in front of White House and march to CBP headquarters in protest of continued anti-Muslim, refugee, and immigrant policies

Washington, D.C. – Hundreds will join local and national Muslim, immigrant, refugee, and civil rights organizations at noon on Saturday, January 27th in front of the White House to protest the one-year anniversary of the first Muslim and Refugee Ban and subsequent bans that have discriminated against communities and dismantled the refugee resettlement program. Impacted leaders still affected by the current bans on Muslim-majority nations will speak about family separation. Refugee leaders will protest the most recent refugee ban, which alongside other policy changes is estimated to result in only 15,000 refugees arriving this year, just a third of the 45,000 cap set by the President – the lowest in history.  [Wow! They think it will be as low as 15,000! They will surely all go broke with so few paying clients!—ed]

No stranger to DC protests.  This is Church World Service’s CEO being arrested in a pro-amnesty demonstration a few year ago.   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/10/26/church-world-service-ceo-says-trump-is-catering-to-white-supremacists-with-refugee-screening-changes/

WHAT: Faith leaders, Muslim-American community members, refugees, and advocates express opposition to a year of Muslim and refugee bans. Allies will form a human chain during Islamic midday prayer and march to the Trump Hotel and Customs and Border Protection headquarters. [Get pics if you go!—-ed]

Later in the day, we will engage in a creative visual act of protest at the Trump International Hotel with someone directly affected by the ban.
