Apparently no ‘pocket of resistance’ in Reno as first refugees arrive, but we learned something important!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 19, 2016

We told you months ago that Reno, NV was on the list to get a refugee resettlement office for the first time. You can see the abstract submitted by the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) here.

carina-black

Carina Black, as Director of the Northern Nevada International Center, works for Lavinia Limon at USCRI. http://refugees.org/find-a-location/#agency-map

This is the puff-piece about the first family of refugees from the DR Congo (we are taking 50,000) and the welcome they received. Most of the Congolese are not Muslims but a small percentage are.

Note two things: first that this family had a home in Uganda (these are not destitute camp dwellers) and that there will be a public meeting on Wednesday night (the 21st) to (LOL!) answer the public’s questions, but alas (they must have chosen a small venue on purpose) and it is sold out.  You have got to watch on line (so there goes the opportunity to make any noise).

I have to give them credit, the feds and their contractors/subcontractors really know how to get these offices up and running in secrecy.

But, this is the important news we learned:

The US State Department has chosen 47 new towns to be primary resettlement sites this year! Has your’s been chosen and you don’t even know about it yet?

From the Reno Gazette-Journal:

The Musungus are among 75 refugees coming to Reno over the next year as part of a refugee resettlement project sponsored by the Northern Nevada International Center. The nonprofit applied earlier this year to be one of 47 new sites chosen by the State Department to accept refugees from worn-torn countries.

[….]

While in Uganda, he was able to live better than most by using some of his musical background to work as a sound engineer, later moving up to managing a band that played in hotels. It gave the family enough to rent a home, but they were constantly required to check in with government officials regarding their status.

I bet they ‘sold out’ the event by stacking it with friendlies!

RGJ.com [that is the local newspaper—ed] and the Northern Nevada International Center will host a town hall meeting Wednesday, Sept. 21 to answer questions about the resettlement of conflict-zone refugees in Reno-Sparks.

The event is sold out. You can watch the event live from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on the RGJ’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/RGJMedia.

The whole story is here.

So what industry near Reno is looking for cheap labor? Don’t Nevada’s Hispanics need work?

St. Cloud Somali Jihadist one of nearly 150,000 Somalis admitted to US in refugee program in over 3 decades

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 19, 2016

I don’t know what to make of the fact that the Somali jihadist in St. Cloud, MN has not been officially identified when his father and the Somali ‘community’ fingered him yesterday.

Here is what the Minneapolis Star Tribune said about his identity. Here is my post yesterday.

george-bush

We have admitted tens of thousands of Somalis to your towns and cities in over 3 decades and it is George W. Bush who is responsible for three really big years. Obama could still beat him in overall numbers.

Breitbart has a story pinning the blame for the large number of Somalis in the US on Hillary Clinton, but let’s be fair!  Every President’s State Department since the early ’80’s has admitted Somalis to America.

Back in 2008 I painstakingly went back to annual reports for many years (before we had access to the Refugee Processing Center) and here is what I reported and subsequently updated each year since.

I’ve taken the numbers I had gathered and grouped them by the President whose State Department was admitting the refugees.  If, as we are told, the St. Cloud jihadist came to America with his family 15 years ago, that would have put him in Clinton’s last bunch or Bush’s first bunch.

We have been taking Somalis ever since Somalia’s civil war in the 1980’s. Why is it our problem if the myriad Somali clans can’t get along or govern themselves!

The numbers below are only for the US Refugee Admissions Program!

(These numbers do not include other ways Somalis have entered the US such as Temporary Protected Status, Diversity Visa Lottery winners, asylum seekers, students and other who over-stayed visas, or illegal aliens we have not yet found.)

Reagan and Bush (the first): 4,413

1983-93:   4,413

(Black Hawk Down, Oct. 3, 1993)

Bill Clinton: 35,635

1994:  3,508

1995:  2,524

1996:  6,440

1997:  4,948

1998:  2,952

1999:  4,321

2000:  6,002

2001:  4,940

 

George W. Bush (43): 48,865

2002:   242    (Guesses why this is so low?  9/11 freaked everyone out!)

2003:  1,708

2004:  12,814

2005:  10,101

2006:  10,330

2007:  6,958

2008:  2,523 (family reunification suspended when widespread fraud discovered)

2009:  4,189  (on the rise again even though family reunification is suspended still!)

 

Barack Hussein Obama: 46,378 (so far)

2010:  4,884

2011:  3,161

2012:  4,921

2013:  7,600

2014:  9,000

2015: 8,858

2016 (one month short of a full year): 7,954 (1,099 went to Minnesota in the last 11 months)

2017: Technically this is O’s too because he is right now (September 2016) making the decision for 2017.

I figured (above) for the first year of a new President, who comes in to office almost 4 months after the fiscal year began, he is not responsible for that year’s refugee numbers.

The question everyone should be asking this week, after noticing that security screening is useless if the Muslim ‘youths’ we raised with our tax dollars grow up to be killers, is, WHY ARE WE STILL TAKING IN SOMALIS GOING ON 4 DECADES! WHY DID WE TAKE THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE? WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR SOMALIA FOREVER ARE WE?

Call your Member of Congress and US Senators today and all week! Tell them to cut off the flow of migrants from terror-producing countries by cutting off the funding in the Continuing Resolution!

Tell them to get on the Babin/Brat letter!

Knife-wielding attacker (who injured 9) in St. Cloud mall was a Somali

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 18, 2016

Update September 20th: Here is a story about his original resettlement, as a child, in Fargo, ND. It is a short drive from Fargo to St. Cloud (I drove it while on my RRW road trip this summer).

I guess as time goes  on we will hear if he came to the US as a refugee youngster and benefited from the generosity of US and state taxpayers or whether he is a relatively new refugee (the vast majority of the Somalis in the US came in through the Refugee Admissions Program).

Only a small fraction of the nearly 200,000 Somalis in the US now came in through other legal means (some came illegally across our southern border).

Remember what MN Governor Dayton said last year, don’t like our Somalis get out of Minnesota!

dave-kleis

St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis, a staunch defender of the burgeoning Somali community in St. Cloud, looked a bit distraught at the press conference today. Said stuff like this kept him up at night. Really? Or was it just last night?

It is simply pathetic that a couple of hours ago all of the officials arrayed in a lengthy St. Cloud press conference—the mayor (who has been a vocal advocate for the expanding Somali enclave there), the police, even the FBI couldn’t bring themselves to identify the dead perpetrator, but waited (did they wait on purpose?) to give the ‘Somali community’ time to spin the story.

He was a good boy, no violent past, a good student, a college student in St. Cloud. (Maybe even a security guard!) So what! He was first and foremost a Jihadist. And, Obama and his Lefty friends who chalk up ‘violent extremism’ to poverty and lack of opportunity can just shut up! This guy had prospects for a good future and he chose jihad for Allah instead.

Here is Michael Leahy at Breibart:

The Saint Cloud Times is reporting Dahir Adan, a member of the local Somali Community, was the man who attacked nine people at a local mall Saturday while shouting about “Allah.”

A short time earlier, St. Cloud Somali-American community members identified the deceased suspect as Dahir Adan.

Leaders of the Somali-American community in St. Cloud gathered Sunday with his family and issued a statement of sympathy for the family and the nine victims of the attack.

Community leader Abdul Kulane said as far as the family and community know, the suspect did not have any history of violence. He was known as a smart, accomplished student at Apollo High School. He was a junior at St. Cloud State University, Kulane said. Adan was also working part-time as a private security officer, leaders said.

At a press conference on Sunday, St. Cloud, Minnesota city officials refused to release the identity of the man who attacked nine people with a knife in a local mall Saturday night while shouting “Allah.” The attacker was killed by an off-duty police officer from a nearby city who happened to be in the mall at the time.

Continue here.

And then here Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit has more where we learn that he was originally from Fargo, ND (another major resettlement city not far from St. Cloud) from the Jihadists facebook page. Thank the Lutherans of Minnesota and North Dakota for changing America by changing its people.  (Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is the major federal contractor with subcontractors in both those locations.)

By the way, I have been to St. Cloud twice and on my first visit in 2015, the St. Cloud Times thought it was a good idea to attempt to discredit what I say.

See my huge archive on St. Cloud by clicking here.

Don’t forget, Obama goes to the United Nations and holds his super-duper refugee summit on Tuesday to persuade America to take in even more Muslim refugees!

South Dakota cutting back on refugees it takes (good news if there isn’t a catch)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 17, 2016

At a time when refugee offices are expanding nationwide and new offices are opening, South Dakota state coordinator Tim Jurgens tells the Argus Leader that SD is cutting back because it is “mindful of people opposed to welcoming refugees.” Wow!   Can we take this as a hopeful sign that someone is listening!

Argus Leader (hat tip: Elena):

South Dakota won’t participate in the White House’s next push to increase the number of refugees escaping poverty and violence.

mike-mayor

Aberdeen Mayor Mike Levsen couldn’t possibly be too thrilled to hear this news (unless they are shifting Huron’s numbers to Aberdeen). In April he was looking for more refugee labor as we reported in a post which went viral here this week. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2016/04/16/heads-up-aberdeen-south-dakota-new-resettlement-site-being-proposed/

The director of the lone resettlement program in South Dakota said it would not participate in the federal effort, citing the debate over immigration in the state.

“There’s people that fall on both sides of this particular issue,” said Tim Jurgens, director of Lutheran Social Service’s Center for New Americans.

Jurgens said the center won’t increase its numbers, in part because it wants to be mindful of people opposed to welcoming refugees.

“We try to visit with anybody, regardless of their opinion and try to inform them of the process and collect their input,” Jurgens said.

Meanwhile, the group has raised millions of dollars for a new space for its refugee services, and was awarded a $250,000 grant Thursday from the federal government to help immigrants prepare for citizenship.

Fewer refugees are finding a home in Sioux Falls and the rest of the state in recent years in spite of the federal government’s wishes. Lutheran Social Services plans to end a direct resettlement program in Huron at the end of the month.

Continue reading here.

I traveled to Aberdeen and Huron this summer and met some great people who are pretty unhappy about the influx of refugees in recent years mostly to work in meat packing plants there (remember, cheap labor is the major driver of refugee resettlement in America!).

ACLU files motion to immediately allow admittance of all refugees 17-21 to Lancaster high school

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 17, 2016

To taxpayers and parents in ‘welcoming’ communities nationwide, are your ready for expensive legal wrangling in your school system as your town’s refugee population grows? You better be!

Lancaster, PA has been a “welcoming” community for refugees from all over the world for years, and now they are receiving them at a rate of 700 a year.  In that group are teenage refugees who do not speak English and may have not had any, or very little, formal schooling.  Those teenagers/adults 17-21 had been placed in an alternative school until recently.

molly-tack-hooper

ACLU staff attorney Molly Tack-Hooper says refugees have rights to a quality education (even if it diminishes the rights of American kids). She didn’t say that last part but this is more of the same—refugees first! not Americans!

I told you about the earlier trial here which ended in a judge ordering those who brought the case admitted to McCaskey High School.

However, now here comes the ACLU demanding that the School District of Lancaster admit 90 students to the traditional high school immediately.

From Pennlive.com:

The ACLU of Pennsylvania has filed an emergency motion against the School District of Lancaster (SDOL) that seeks to force the district to enroll all refugee students ages 17 to 21 in traditional high school rather than an alternative school.

If the ACLU’s motion is granted, the School District of Lancaster would have to admit more than 90 refugees into the district from privately-run Phoenix Academy. In a news release, the ACLU pointed to the Aug. 26 ruling ordering the school to admit the original six students who filed suit against the district into McCaskey High School, adding that the ruling from District Judge Edward Smith encouraged the district to apply the court’s ruling to all refugee students of similar circumstances.

Noting email exchanges involving a local refugee resettlement agency*** [on the side of the ACLU–ed] and district officials illustrating a lack of desire for widespread change, the ACLU also said the district’s actions show it has no intention of honoring the court’s legal reasoning. Without intervention from the law, the the students continue to suffer irreparable harm from the enrollment delays and exclusion from the high school, the ACLU contends.

The emergency motion comes two days after the SDOL filed its own motion for a stay on the August ruling as well as a motion to expedite the appeal it formally filed Sept 2. The district enrolled the six students who sued and won but have not admitted any other refugee students, citing overcrowding and logistical issues, according to reports and its motions.

Where is the ‘pocket of resistance’ in Lancaster, or is it too late for Lancaster?

We have written a lot about Lancaster, click here, for our archive.

***The primary federal resettlement contractor in Lancaster is Church World Service. Does CWS operate in your town, see here.

Lesson from Missoula, Montana: They will lie to you!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 16, 2016

It couldn’t be a clearer demonstration of what I’ve been saying for years.

Pay attention prospective ‘welcoming’ communities!

Once a federal contractor gets an office established, your town will have NO CONTROL over how many will come and where they will come from.

mary-poole

Activist Mary Poole got the ball rolling and invited the International Rescue Committee to set up an office in Missoula. The rumor is that Mary is taking one, maybe two, families to live at her house to save taxpayers having to care for them (joking of course!)

And, LOL!, for all of you getting a run-around from your contractor office about the Abstract (what abstract? we don’t know what you are talking about?), well now we learn they sure did know what you were asking, but they wanted to make you feel dumb and uninformed.  The arrogance of these federal contractors is stunning!

Here is the latest from Missoula where the commissioners said they would “welcome” one hundred, well, oopsy now they will get 150—including Syrian and Iraqi Muslims among many ethnic groups.

(When your community gets a smattering of everything, it may sound cool to get all the “international flavor,” but be ready for a lot of extra taxpayer-funded costs in the local school system to accommodate myriad languages and levels of learning .)

Before you continue reading, be sure to see this post where we reported that the first Congolese families arriving in Missoula were homeless.

From The Missoulian:

Four families of Congolese have arrived in Missoula in the past month, but resettlement here will soon take on a more international flavor.

[…..]

Carr, executive director of the Missoula International Rescue Committee (IRC) office, said some of the millions who have fled civil war in Syria will land in Missoula after going through an international screening process and orientation.

“There will maybe be Iraqi refugees who will come. There may be refugees who come from Central African Republic, Chad, Sudan, Burma, Bhutan, Latin America,” she told about 30 people Tuesday night at a meeting of the Missoula County Democratic Central Committee in City Council chambers.

Obama is keeping the number of Syrians in the 2017 flow a secret!

jon-engen-2013

Mayor John Engen: So how many refugees will he take to live at his house?

While a target for Syrian resettlements in fiscal year 2017 hasn’t been announced, Obama’s refugee plan is expected to welcome even more.

That’s been a topic of debate among presidential candidates and in Montana, where Missoula opened the lone resettlement office in the state just two months ago.

Carr said the abstract proposal for Missoula now calls for 150 refugees in the next year. That’s up from “approximately 100 per year” that Missoula County Commissioners said they would welcome in a January letter to Anne Richard, assistant secretary of the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugee and Migration.

The bureau cited the support of the commissioners, Mayor John Engen and most of the Missoula City Council in agreeing to reopen an IRC resettlement office in Missoula. Soft Landing Missoula, which formed a year ago in response to the refugee crisis in Syria, has marshaled local support and continues to provide resources and manpower as the Congolese arrive.

Continue reading here.

Montanans there are 3 things to remember:

~The new year begins in 2 weeks (not in January), so Syrians could be there in October!

~They can distribute them within a hundred miles of Missoula especially if they are looking for cheap housing!

~The REPUBLICAN Congress could stop the whole thing from happening before October 1 by defunding the program in the Continuing Resolution (if they wanted to!).

Flint, Michigan, an economically troubled city, to get 100 Middle Eastern refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 16, 2016

Update:  Some hot news! Obama/Hillary refugee plans for Michigan could be pushing voters into the Trump camp!  See it here at Breitbart!

Dumb or evil to (secretly!) introduce more poverty and cultural tension to an economically struggling city?  But that is where we are these days with the completely out of control UN/US Refugee Admissions Program.

Secret plans!

Readers!  Sorry to keep nagging, but you have got to get the planning documents called Reception and Placement Abstracts (R & P Abstracts) from your local resettlement contractor or use your state’s public information law to get them out of your state refugee coordinator (all state coordinators are listed here). I know you probably find it beyond belief that a supposed non-profit ‘religious’ charity is making plans (with the federal government) for your town while you, and sometimes even your elected officials, are completely left in the dark.

flint

So the do-gooder Lutherans (and Obama’s State Dept) think that planting a hundred Middle Easterners in Flint starting two weeks from tomorrow is a humanitarian thing to do?

Here is what we are learning about troubled Flint, Michigan from Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart:

Breitbart News has learned that a resettlement agency funded by the Obama administration plans to send 100 Iraqi and Syrian refugees to Flint, Michigan, in the fiscal year that begins next month on October 1.

But that plan appears to violate a clause in the federal Refugee Act of 1980 which requires the federal government and director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement to consult with local as well as state governments prior to the placement of any refugees within their boundaries.

“At this point it appears city leaders have not been informed of the details regarding this matter,” a spokesperson for Mayor Karen Weaver and the city of Flint tells Breitbart News.

It’s the same story with the government of Genesee County, in which Flint is located.

“As of this time the Genesee County Board of Commissioners has not been notified of any settlement of 100 refugees from Middle East – South Asia,” Jamie Curtis, Chairman of the Genesee County Board of Commissioners, tells Breitbart News through a spokesperson.

Flint, a city of 100,000, is in the midst of a financial and public health crisis …

According to this FY 2017 abstract submitted to the Department of State by Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, which operates in Michigan as Samaritas, the resettlement agency plans to bring 100 Iraqi and Syrian refugees to Flint Michigan in the twelve month fiscal year that begins in less than three weeks. The document was obtained in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

With all the financial and public health problems the city of Flint, Michigan faces, critics are wondering if it makes any sense to force 100 Syrian and Iraqi refugees upon the citizens of Flint, Michigan.

Continue reading here, there is much more!  And, for all of you who live in Michigan all of the R & P Abstracts for the state are made available in links at the end of the article.  Have a look at some of those and note how the numbers coming to each town are going up each year.  So if they tell you it will be only 50 the first year, know that it could be 150 the next year.  Lancaster, PA, where its schools are struggling now, is up to 900 a year because no one ever complained!

Your homework!

Everyone in America (we have thousands who read RRW around the world) call your state coordinator today and first ask (nicely) to receive the R & P Abstracts for your state.  (Exempt from homework are you folks in Michigan!)  If you get a no, or you get a runaround then next week call your Congressman and two US Senators offices and tell them you are being stonewalled and you want them to get the document for you.

BTW, the state coordinator may act dumb and say he/she doesn’t know what you are talking about.  Well, use one of those from Michigan or the one I wrote about from Wisconsin, here, and tell them that is the document you want for your state.

In the meantime, learn how to do state freedom of information requests where you live and get those rolling out next week when it is clear you are going to get no help from the state coordinator or from your Washington representatives.

When you have obtained the document, try to interest a local reporter in writing about it, or you write a letter to the editor and tell your fellow citizens how many refugees are coming your way starting in 2 weeks from tomorrow.

Remember they have been getting away with changing America by changing its people by using secrecy to seed American neighborhoods!

Big businesses hire refugees, partner with Obama to replace American workers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 15, 2016

Huge companies, many of them multinational corporations, are, according to the International Rescue Committee (America’s wealthiest refugee contracting agency), scooping up refugee workers and training them apparently rather than spending the money to train needy African American or other American citizens.

 

irc-poster

IRC’s propaganda poster. You have got to hand it to them they are masters at marketing and propaganda.

 

The International Rescue Committee tells us that ‘do-gooderism’ is secondary to making smart business decisions that they say are driving these companies. (Ha! I bet the IRC’s volunteers think this is all about humanitarian zeal!)

Americans first!

Wouldn’t it be smart to train and hire needy American citizens first especially in cities hard hit by unemployment that leads to hopelessness and crime? Apparently not!

So if it’s simply good business:

Are refugee laborers willing to work more cheaply?

Are refugee laborers subsidized by government programs and therefore tax credits fall to companies who hire them?

Are refugee laborers trapped (they can’t easily go home) or quit the job?

Are refugee laborers more compliant and less willing to complain about working conditions?

Are refugee laborers pawns who are really here to change the demographic make-up of America (apparently supported by the companies Obama has lined up below)?

jennifer-paterson

Marketing expert, Jennifer Patterson is Obama’s program director for his corporate partnership for refugees. http://www.partnershipforrefugees.org/our-team/

We have previously reported on Chobani Yogurt and Chiptotle, both glowingly described by the International Rescue Committee (remember they gave George Soros their Freedom award recently) which directs us to Obama’s Partnership for Refugees sure to be on full display at the United Nations next week (at Obama’s shindig on the 20th).

Here is what the IRC says about Hamdi Ulukaya at Chobani (a leader of the Hijra!):

“Other companies have worked on the problem more deliberately. At Chobani—whose Kurdish CEO, Hamdi Ulukaya, has committed the majority of his personal wealth to ending the refugee crisis—the company started hiring refugees soon after it started to grow. Resettled refugees now make up 30% of the company’s employees. This, however, isn’t without political challenges: Chobani has faced criticism and calls for boycotts from conservatives who argue that the company is taking jobs from American-born workers.”

Another company the IRC gives a glowing report about is Starwood Hotels (they need maids and janitors) and according to wikipedia the massive chain may be bought out by Marriott.  The Marriotts are long time big supporters of amnesty and more refugee resettlement.

Your communities are being changed forever so that giant corporations can have cheap compliant labor!

In addition to those mentioned above, here (below) are the companies you can expect to see showcased at the UN next week with Obama, Samantha Power and of course Hillary lurking in the background.

(For those of you doing research in your towns and cities, find out which corporations are giving money to your elected officials in Washington and then you will know why your Senators and Members of Congress are reluctant to reform, or cut the funding for the Refugee Admissions Program, while feigning concern for the poor of the world.)

Forget asking nicely, time to use freedom of information laws (Michigan model)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 15, 2016

We learned this week that the Obama Administration is setting the table for a huge increase in the number of refugees to be admitted to the US for the new fiscal year which begins October 1, presumably setting things up for a Hillary presidency (and making it harder for a Trump administration to pull those numbers back in January without hate-filled attacks against him when/if he does. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth—waahhh!—with refugee contractors saying they are already in the pipeline).

public-information-cartoon

We also know that the REPUBLICAN Congress has the final word because they can appropriate money for the program or withhold the funding in the next few weeks and months.

However, now that the Presidential determination has been sent to Congress there is no reason a local refugee office or a state refugee coordinator*** should withhold from you the Reception and Placement Abstract which lays out how many the local resettlement contractor is planning for your town.

I know many of you have been asking nicely for those important planning documents and are being rebuffed.

They like to use the excuse that they were in the deliberative stage with their plans for your communities, but that excuse is now gone!  All of those documents were used to prepare the determination that has been delivered to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees.

(BTW, you might look at the rosters for both committees and see if your Member of Congress or Senator is on the committee, then get on the phone and call their office and tell them you want the R & P Abstract for ____federal resettlement agency working in your town/city. Put the office to work for you! LOL! I’ll bet your Washington rep has never seen the documents that will ultimately change his or her district forever!)

However, you may just have to go the FOIA route.

dearborn-michigan

The US State Department and supposed ‘religious’ charities are working tirelessly to increase the Muslim population of places like Dearborn, Michigan.

Every state has a Public Information law (it might not be called FOIA where you live, FOIA usually refers to the federal law) managed by your state’s attorney general.  For example, here is Maryland’s

Find the site where you live and then use the request letter template they provide. When using the state FOIAs, response time is pretty quick (usually).

If you have months to wait, then try the federal FOIA on the US State Department or the Office of Refugee Resettlement in HHS (but be sure to find the correct request template or they will just kick your letter back).

Michigan as a model….

Concerned citizens in Michigan used their state’s public information law and finally received their planning documents for the resettlement cities in that state.

Here is Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart reporting on what they found:

Breitbart News has obtained the FY 2017 refugee resettlement proposals from the five leading resettlement agencies that operate in Michigan showing they plan to jam down a 40 percent increase in refugees from the “Middle East-South Asia” region, which includes Syria, on residents of Michigan in the fiscal year that begins on October 1.

These plans in Michigan are completely consistent with the nationwide “refugee number determination” the Obama Administration presented to Congress on Tuesday: an increase of the FY 2017 ceiling by 29 percent to 110,000, up from the ceiling of 85,000 that was approved for FY 2016. The actual final number for FY 2016 is likely to reach or exceed the original ceiling number, if the run rate of the last few months continues for the final two weeks of the fiscal year.

In their FY 2016 plans, these five agencies–Lutheran Social Services (which recently changed the name of its Michigan operation to Samaritas), Church World Service, Catholic Charities, HIAS (formerly the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), and Episcopal Migration Ministries— proposed 4,060 refugees overall to be resettled in Michigan, 2,567 from the “Middle East-South Asia” region, which includes Syria. As of September 13, 3,783 total refugees, 1,217 of whom are from Syria, have been resettled in Michigan to date this fiscal year. At the accelerated run rate of the past few months, year end numbers are likely to hit or exceed the FY 2016 plan for 4,000 total refugees in Michigan, of which over 1,300 are Syrian refugees.

The FY 2017 plans, obtained through Freedom of Information Act request made to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services by a local Michigan grassroots group (as were the FY 2016 plans), show that that these five resettlement agencies have proposed a 38 percent increase in overall refugee resettlement, up to 5,606 refugees. This includes a 40 percent increase in refugees from the “Middle East-South Asia” region that includes Syria, to 3,586.

There is much more, continue reading here. Can you believe it! They are sending impoverished third worlders to Flint starting in October!

Now they are after West Virginia as new refugee office planned for state capitol

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 13, 2016

West Virginia has been near the bottom of the list of resettlement states for the last 9 years that I’ve followed the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program, but all that could change.

Resettlement contractors are running out of housing and frankly ‘welcome’ where they have overloaded cities like Lancaster, PA (do you want WV schools to have to cope with this!) and Buffalo, NY so they are casting about looking for fresh territory (populated with lots of naive do-gooders!).

A couple of years ago the folks in Wyoming were able to hold off a program there.  Montana couldn’t quite manage it and now has homeless refugees in Missoula.  Rutland, VT citizens are working hard to turn back the plan to bring Syrians to their city.  And despite what this story from the Charleston Gazette implies, a pocket of resistance is growing in Charleston, WV.

capito

US Senator (Republican) Shelley Moore Capito. So is she for changing West Virginia by changing its people? She sits on the Senate Appropriations Committee. West Virginians need to ask her if she supports billions of your dollars going to import poverty? https://www.capito.senate.gov/

Most eastern states have not dodged a bullet (LOL! except for Joe Biden’s Delaware).  West Virginia has always been near the bottom of the list of states being targeted. Not anymore.  See my earlier post on Charleston, here.

Imagine in a state where the coal mining industry has been decimated by Obama, they are now being asked to ‘welcome’ impoverished refugees from mostly the Middle East and Africa with a new resettlement office in Charleston!

Where are West Virginia’s two US Senators? Where is Rep. Alex Mooney (a Freedom Caucus member) who represents Charleston? Are they o.k. with importing more poverty for the state?

And, don’t miss the fact that WV Rep. Evan Jenkins is on the House Appropriations Committee. All three, Capito, Mooney and Jenkins could bring this plan to a screeching halt if they wanted to!

From the Charleston Gazette earlier this month:

Of the more than 10,000 Syrian refugees placed in the United States this fiscal year, just five were resettled in West Virginia, but efforts persist to make the state a haven for Syrians fleeing the carnage of civil war in their country.

Charleston is still in the running to become one of the Episcopal Migration Ministries “resettlement communities.” The resettlement agency has 30 similar communities throughout the United States where local organizations assist the refugees with translation, finding work and health care, getting to know their community and other services.

In November 2015, Catholic Charities of West Virginia, which, for 30 years, has assisted in resettlement of refugees, including Syrians, told the Gazette-Mail it had told the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops that it had the capacity to help resettle 100 Syrian refugees. Catholic Charities’ Migration and Refugee Services Division typically helps resettle about 50 refugees per year, but it anticipated a greater need because of the crisis in Syria.

Patti Phillips, director of development and marketing for the nonprofit, said this week that, during the fiscal year, just a handful of Syrian refugees — a family of five — were placed in West Virginia. During the 2015-16 fiscal year, about 30 total refugees arrived in the state. Phillips said Catholic Charities only places refugees in West Virginia who have pre-existing ties to family or friends in the area.

Danna Van Brandt, public diplomacy and public affairs adviser for the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, provided a statement from Barbara Day***, domestic-resettlement section chief for the same bureau. Day said the State Department’s placement plan for refugees in West Virginia in fiscal year 2016 included up to 50 refugees from around the world and was “formulated in partnership with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Catholic Charities of West Virginia.”

Here we are with this family-tie trick. What they will do is start seeding new refugees into Charleston and next year they will be bringing the family members of that first group!  So it never ends!  Be sure to see my ‘Ten things your town needs to know’ by clicking here.

The Gazette continues…..

“Refugees are placed in West Virginia when they have family or personal ties in the state,” Day said. “Being resettled in a place where a refugee has personal ties is a crucial way to ease a refugee’s transition into life in the United States.”

In May, Episcopal Migration Ministries [one of nine major federal resettlement contractors.—ed] sent an employee and consultant to Charleston to learn more about the city, in hopes of establishing the city as a resettlement community. If Charleston is selected, a local organization potentially would assist in resettling 100 to 150 refugees each year in Charleston.

The West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry, a group that started to create greater understanding of the plight of Syrian refugees and combat rising anti-Muslim sentiment, had encouraged the resettlement agency to consider the area.

See more here on the WV Interfaith Refugee Ministry and how they admit WV is poor and lacking in jobs, but what the hell, bring in the diversity anyway!  Beware any ‘interfaith’ group where you live.

How many refugees has WV gotten over the years?

I just had a  look at the numbers for  West Virginia (Refugee Processing Center).  Since Obama took office the state has resettled 176 refugees (a tiny number when you compare it to Texas’s over 7,000 a year).  In 2008 only 5 refugees were placed in WV.  This year there were 25 up until September 1.

In addition to the Syrians, the primary countries of origin of the refugees so far have been Iraq, Burma and Eritrea.  The top resettlement city was Moorefield and a few went to Morgantown.  Of course, as we said, Charleston, the capitol, got its first Syrians (99% of Syrians entering US are Muslims, we are not saving Christians!) and is now being considered for a new resettlement office to bring in up to 150 soon.

*** Day is another federal employee who rotated into her position from a refugee contracting agency. There should be a  law against this!  See more here.
