Advice from a reader in-the-know!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 27, 2016

Update:  Do not miss the comments to this post!

Editor:  This is another in our series ofcomments worth noting’ and was posted by ‘jdelaney3 ‘ to our post yesterday, ‘Is yours to be a “welcoming” refugee community?’  I assure you that this reader knows what he is talking about!

we'll be watching you

I liked the message! But, can’t use the image without telling you that you can purchase this sign here: http://www.safetysign.com/products/p88354/well-be-watching-you-sign

Get organized! (from ‘jdelaney3’)

I urge folks to deluge local resettlement agency offices with phone calls to determine what refugees and in what numbers they plan to accept for resettlement during the remainder of the year. Put them on notice that you and many others will be watching.

If any of those refugees the agency is planning to resettle are, from all reports, improperly vetted, urge them NOT to “assure” (accept) them.

Keep your eye on these volags/ngos/gov’t contractors and call with regularity for updated information as to what refugees have arrived and what refugees are expected to arrive.

I would also contact City Hall and the County Executive to intercede as well in this regard.

Also, reach out to community organizations, many of which should welcome the opportunity to keep tabs on the refugee influx as well.

If the agency is a Catholic-supervised operation, e.g. Migration & Refugee Services–USCCB, also touch base with the Diocese as often as appropriate. Let them all know they’re being monitored.

It’s all about pressure and oversight which these refugee resettlement operations are terrified of.

Finally, if you know folks who have firsthand familiarity with the local resettlement office staff and operation, ask them to keep you posted. Not all who work for or volunteer for these agencies are lackeys. 

So how do you find your local resettlement agency offices? Click here and if you live near one of these offices know that they can resettle refugees in nearby towns—up to 100 miles or about a two hour drive away.

But, here is step 2!  You have got to get what you learn out beyond your own little circle!  Write a blog or website, write letters-to-the-editor, develop a social media network, make youtube vids, whatever it takes!

Use your free speech while you’ve got it!

Tennesseans urged to sign petition, Governor must hear from the people!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 27, 2016

Editor:  This is a guest post by Don Barnett, a fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies and a resident of Tennessee. 

If you are from Tennessee, the most important thing you can do is to post this information on your facebook page/other social media, and send to your e-mail lists.
Since the governor is supporting the status quo on refugee resettlement in Tennessee, TN he needs to hear from the people. Be sure to let your other elected officials know how you feel as well.

 

Barnett:

Don BarnettSupporters of maintaining the status quo in refugee resettlement in Tennessee – that is, allowing the federal contractor to run the program for its own benefit without a requirement that it report refugee social services usage or accurately report the numbers resettled – often point out that refugees pay more in taxes than they consume in benefits, so why all the fuss?

The resettlement program is so little understood and secretive that the contractors can make blatantly false statements and be assured those statements will be reported as fact by the media.

As reported in The Tennessean, the contractor notes that “a 2013 report presented to the Joint Government Operations Legislative Advisory Committee determined that refugees and their descendants provided $1.4 billion in revenue for Tennessee between 1990 and 2012, compared with requiring $753 million in state support.”

Haslam

Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam (R) doesn’t want to rock the boat on refugee flow to TN. Photo: http://www.tennessean.com/story/news/politics/2015/06/30/lawmakers-downplay-obamas-impact-insure-tennessee/29491441/

The 2013 study was actually very limited and makes no such sweeping conclusion.

In assessing the cost of publicly funded benefits for refugees the study looked at just 2 programs – public education (including ELL) and Tenncare(Medicaid). It ignored a whole range of programs which Tennesseans use and fund both with Tennessee tax dollars and as federal tax payers.

Sen. Mark Norris noted that at last count 11 state funded programs were being accessed by arriving refugees.

The study assumed that refugees were using Tenncare (Medicaid) at the same rate as average Tennesseans even though up to 59% of refugees have been placed into Tenncare upon arrival in recent years.

A recent federal study found staggering welfare usage rates even among those in the country for 5 years – majority still on food stamps, 44% on Medicaid, 29 % of families with one or more members on SSI, 17% on TANF and so on.

In spite of known high welfare usage among refugees, the report assumed refugees pay state taxes at the same rate as average Tennesseans.

The study, which was supposed to have determined to what extent the feds had placed an unfunded mandate on the state of Tennessee, was hijacked by the pro-refugee lobby, i.e. the local Chamber of Commerce and refugee contractors.

The seemingly positive outcome of the study was foreordained even though the study authors themselves concluded “The information necessary to complete a comprehensive study on the possible cost shifting from the federal government to the state for the resettlement of refugees is not available.” And even though a complete reading of the study does not allow for any positive conclusion despite refugee industry statements.

Perhaps Tennesseans best hope is passage of senate resolution SJR467 which would allow The Thomas More Law Center to sue the federal government over refugee resettlement on 10th amendment grounds. The public services law center will take the case at no charge to the state of Tennessee. Not only might it shed light on this program, but most importantly it would clarify to what extent, if any, the federal government can force a state to use state taxes to cover unfunded costs imposed by a federal program.

The resolution has overwhelming support in both houses of the Tennessee legislature but has stirred fierce opposition from the usual suspects, including Governor Haslam.

All Tennesseans concerned with this should sign the petition included here http://keeptnsafe.com/petition/ and tell the Governor to stop trying to block the democratic process.

For our extensive Tennessee archive, click here.  See here for background on what the governor is doing.

This political work on-going in Tennessee, on the question of refugee resettlement and states’ rights, is groundbreaking!

Montana writer: “…the U.S. to become welfare agency for the whole world.”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 18, 2016

Unfortunately this is one of those days where I have too many demands on my time to be able to write much.

Miliband and Hillary 'vibrant'

David Miliband, the former British Foreign Secretary (and bff Hillary), is the CEO of the International Rescue Committee which wants to seed Montana with third worlders. See Hillary’s big “crush” on Miliband, here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/11/16/does-hillary-clinton-have_n_359649.html

But, definitely wanted you to see this excellent opinion piece in the Montana Standard about the proposal to re-open refugee resettlement in the state of Montana.

As you know, Wyoming has never had a program, see our recent post by clicking here, but Montana had a tiny program that died nearly eight years ago.  Open borders activists are working now to re-open big sky country to third worlders.

This is Paul Nachman, a Montana citizen activist, who knows just how the program works and opposes it for the state.  Use this piece for guidance when writing letters-to-the-editor where you live.

Montana Standard:

First, refugee resettlement in the U.S. is hardly the work of private, sacrificial charity that one might expect from the names — such as Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, and Episcopal Migration Ministries — of prominent national “voluntary agencies,” or “volags,” involved.

Nachman goes on to discuss the International Rescue Committee (the refugee contractor that would like to open its doors in Montana), fraud in the program, and the expansion of the definition of who is a ‘refugee.’

Go here to read it all.  Leave a comment!

Visit all of our posts on the raging controversy in Montana by clicking here.  See especially this post where we reported on a presentation by Nachman to an audience of 500 in Kalispell—a pocket of resistance!

And, especially since this is election year, don’t miss all of our posts on Hillary and David Miliband!  Click here and see how the one-worlders (including George Soros) have been pals for years.

Missoula, Montana citizens oppose plan to resettle refugees, over 100 turn out in cold/snow

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 2, 2016

Update Feb. 3:  Leo Hohmann at WND has a more detailed account of what happened in Montana, here.

***Update***  National Public Radio has a headline story that reports ACT for America’s role at the rally, see it here.

 

We told you here that a demonstration was planned for the steps of the county court house yesterday and here are a couple of news reports on how it went.

I don’t have much time today to do this story justice, but wanted you to have a quick summary.

Organizers were very happy with the turnout of around 100-125 people including a small contingent who came over from Sandpoint, Idaho (we reported on their situation here).  Almost 20,000 viewed that post on facebook!

From The Missoulian:

Missoula became a center of the anti-refugee settlement movement Monday morning as more than 100 people from across the state and Idaho took to the snow-lined sidewalk in front of the Missoula County Courthouse to decry what they see as a national threat.

“Right now, we’re locked in a battle to protect our security, to protect our country,” said organizer Jim Buterbaugh of Whitehall. “We are fighting the system, trying to head this thing off at the pass.”

Dubbed the “American Security Rally,” Buterbaugh expressed amazement at the turnout.

Only six activists in support of seeding Montana with refugees were present.

The specter of Amarillo was raised!

 

One new Montana resident came from that refugee overloaded city of Amarillo, TX and warned Montanans what they face if they go forward with ‘welcoming’ refugees.  Take a minute and read our recent post on Amarillo being destroyed and how the mayor has no power to stop it! (This Amarillo post was viewed on facebook by over 17,000 readers! and was our top post by far for the month of January.)

From KVGO News Talk:

….one speaker, Karen Sherman, who told KGVO News she just moved to Missoula from Amarillo, Texas, shared the problems her hometown has faced with massive immigration.

“Amarillo is overrun with refugees,” Sherman said. “Our city is failing because of the refugees. We have 22 different languages spoken in our schools, We’ve got 42 different languages being fielded by our 9-1-1 call centers, and crime is just through the roof. We need to exercise caution, especially for the sake of our children.

More here.

It is heartening to see that people who have had experience with refugee colonization, or who are fighting resettlement elsewhere are working together and helping each other!

Michigan Action Alert for today (and this critical week for all of us!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 7, 2015

The Michigan ‘pocket of resistance’ has put out this action alert for their members.

Please use it as a model for your state as we enter this critical week in Congress.  They must hear from you!  (I’m told kudos to the Georgia resisters for helping craft the alert.)

Ryan and McConnell 2

You will find out this week if Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority Leader McConnell put your safety first! We have no obligation to invite unvetted third worlders to your towns to live off of your hard work (your tax dollars).

ACTION ALERT: DEMAND CONGRESS STOP FUNDING REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS

In the wake of the horrific terror attacks in San Bernardino and Paris, the FBI said it lacks the funds to stay ahead of the escalating terror threats right here in America. So why would we want to divert any of our tax dollars, which should be directed to reinforcing our nation’s security and intelligence apparatus to protect our families and our nation, to opening the gates to refugees from terror-supporting nations whom we CAN NOT vet and whose ranks ISIS and other terror organizations target to infiltrate?

This Monday (today!) and Tuesday, we must flood the offices of our US Representatives and Senators with calls (US Capitol Switchboard: 202-224-3121) urging them to vigorously oppose Refugee Resettlement Funding contained in the Omnibus Spending Bill that will be voted on by 12-11-15!

Then make 4 more calls to insist the same:

1. Speaker Paul Ryan/Phone: 202.225.3031
2. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell/Phone: 202.224.2541
3. Rep. Hal Rogers, Chair, Appropriations Committee/Phone: 202.225.4601
4. Sen. Thad Cochran, Chair, Senate Appropriations /Phone: 202.224.7257

Tell your Members of Congress IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS THAT YOU WANT THEM TO SUSPEND REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT FUNDING IMMEDIATELY.

Read Sen. Jeff Sessions’ statement on this: http://www.sessions.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/2015/12/sessions-omnibus-expected-to-fund-obama-s-entire-immigration-agenda

US Rep. Candice Miller of MI, Vice Chair of the Homeland Security Committee, said:

“I support Governor Snyder’s decision to suspend efforts to relocate Syrian refugees to Michigan, and have cautioned against the Administration’s decision to increase the number being admitted into the U.S. …terrorist organizations like ISIS are looking for any and every opportunity to exploit a nation’s hospitality to carry out their barbaric attacks against the innocent. Anyone who says we can adequately and safely vet these refugees is wrong because there is no database in Syria and no way to identify who’s who.”

THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE OF OUR TIME.

If you don’t want unvettable refugees from terror-supporting countries in your neighborhood, you must raise your voices NOW. The immigration industry is a powerful lobby and private resettlement contractors have the authority to send refugees to any town, city, neighborhood or location without public notification and local consent.

http://www.refugeeresettlementmonitormichigan.org/

We have been telling you over the last week or so (here, here and here) that those (mostly the ‘religious Left’) who want to bring in massive numbers of Muslim migrants and other refugees are pulling out all the stops to pressure Congress (yesterday we learned that even the Quakers are against you).  They have never (in 35 years!) been so challenged!  You must counter them!

Next week there will be much to do locally and statewide, but this week, you must make this a priority!

Important radio program tomorrow a.m. on Wilson-Fish states lawsuit!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 6, 2015

Broadcast from Nashville, Tennessee, but can be heard on-line.

We told you about the hunt for a brave governor willing to defend the Constitution here last Thursday.  The hunt continues.

States like Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky and others, CAN stop refugee resettlement in their states.

ERin Mersino

In case you haven’t seen the article, Breitbart reported last week, that the Thomas Moore Law Center has been working since June on a lawsuit to challenge the constitutionality of the federal refugee program as it is being implemented in states like Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama and others.

Erin Mersino, senior trial lawyer from the public interest firm, the Thomas Moore Law Center will talk about this on the Ralph Bristol radio show, Monday December 7th at 9:05 A.M. EST/ 8:05 CST.

The Thomas More Law Center defends and promotes America’s Judeo-Christian heritage and moral values, including the religious freedom of Christians, time-honored family values, and the sanctity of human life. It supports a strong national defense and an independent and sovereign United States of America. The Law Center accomplishes its mission through litigation, education, and related activities. It does not charge for its services.

They will represent your state at no charge.

You can listen to the Ralph Bristol show and learn more about how the lawyers at the Thomas Moore Law Center are prepared to stand up to the federal government and defend your states’ rights.

Listen online to the show: http://pro.wwtn-fm.tritonflex.com/page.php?page_id=151 or tune in to WWTN, 99.7 FM.

Meanwhile, according to Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart, it looks like Tennessee Republican Governor Bill Haslam is not going to be that brave man.

Is yours a Wilson-Fish alternative state?  Why not see if radio programs in others of these states would do an interview with the Thomas More Law Center (if I can be so bold as to offer them!).  You need to build grassroots pressure on governors of these states (it only takes one) to be the plaintiff in this all important Constitutional test!

Alabama
Alaska
Colorado
Idaho
Kentucky
Louisiana
Massachusetts
Nevada
North Dakota
South Dakota
Tennessee
Vermont

A reader suggests we repeat the appeal to sign the White House petition

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 16, 2015

So here is our post from a couple of days ago.  Heck if all the readers arriving at RRW today signed it, it would be close to being done!  You did a great job with governors today!  Don’t forget to call Congress (scroll down)!

Send the message to Obama that we don’t need any more colonization of our towns and cities.

Gates of Vienna reports that a petition in the wake of the Paris terror attack seeking the halt of all refugee resettlement to the US from Middle Eastern countries has been placed on the White House ‘We the People’ petition site.  Please go to GoV, see comments and follow links!

And, don’t forget that a sure fire way to stop the influx is to persuade Congress to use the POWER OF THE PURSE.  Go here for our post yesterday on that effort.  We must make our voices heard in a big way!

Sign the petition!

And, then call your members of Congress and US Senators and tell them to pull the plug on the funding!   Unload especially on Speaker Paul Ryan.  (Remember that US Senators Patrick Leahy and Lindsey Graham are pushing for $1 billion to be ADDED to a funding package to reach the Senate floor on or before December 11th to increase the Syrian flow to America).

Ed Hunter’s novel polling says it is Trump; French reporter gets a shock

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 15, 2015

I feel sure our friends at VDARE won’t mind if I post Maryland grassroots warrior Ed Hunter’s letter to VDARE about what happened on Friday evening when the indefatigable Hunter unfurled one of his highway overpass banners for French TV.

Here is Hunter’s banner for this week, but you can see others of his novel campaigns to circumvent the mainstream media and get his message directly to American citizens, at Blue Ridge Forum.

Overpass Trump can't be bought

Can’t Be Bought Trump

This is what happened on Friday evening as a French TV crew filmed him (from VDARE where you should go for links).  In Ed’s words, but emphasis is mine:

Last week the Washington desk of the French TV station “France 2” contacted us at the Maryland Tea Party and said they wanted to go up on the overpass and conduct an interview on the Donald Trump phenomenon***. About 2 PM we arrive at the bridge over I-95 Northbound, and we set up the banners and are waving to people on the interstate below.

The rush hours is beginning and the traffic is starting to slow down as it passed under us. The French TV crew arrives about an hour later around 3 PM. They get out their big expensive TV camera, and the French reporter Valerie begins asking questions.

Ed Hunter shows how to get his message directly to citizens and around the MSM.

Some of them were hard to answer such as “What does Donald Trump mean?” or “Is this a popular provocation?” (The usual French stuff. How can you answer those types of questions?) Anyway, they get around to the subject of immigration and I can sense I am up against the usual PC wall as they try to get “racist” stuff out of me. So she says “Okay just try to summarize Trump in a way that makes sense to people in France.” So I said “Donald Trump is an American version of Marine Le Pen.” Then she asked if I supported Le Pen and I said, “Absolutely”.

I told her that Muslim immigration will be the end of France and Europe.

Then I asked them (off camera) if they felt that way, and they replied “Oh no…it is all a stunt, we do not have a immigration problem in France. These Muslims are French. They came to France to help us rebuild France. I said. ”French built France. Why can’t you rebuild it yourself?”

They looked at me as the typical redneck American. So as we are talking the noise from the honking from the interstate is rising to a crescendo. The honking and cheers for the Trump banners are getting so loud we can’t continue the conversation. The French say goodbye and get into their car and leave. I am asking myself “What is going on? Why is everyone reacting to the banners, which read ‘CANT BE BOUGHT…VOTE TRUMP’?” The whole Interstate has erupted. Everyone below as far as I can see is going nuts and cheering and leaning on their horn and screaming out the windows “Donald! Donald!” And we are waving back and this is going on for about an hour. And we can’t figure it all out. So it’s 5:30 PM and getting dark and cold. We take down the banners and drive to Starbucks for coffee when someone calls with the news about the Paris attacks.

The very moment that the French media elites were repeating the PC leftist party line… “We do not have an immigration problem. We are multicultural” etc., the news of the Paris attacks is hitting the car radios of the people on the highway below and they are going nuts in support of Trump and his defiance of the political, media and academic elites.

I called Valerie the French reporter and she had just heard the news. All she could say is “I am so shocked…so shocked!!” I said ”Why? You had to know this was coming, you were told a million times—”. At which point she hung up. The next morning I read Ann Coulter in Mediaite: “Donald Trump Was Elected President Tonight.” And I believe he was.

I saw it happen. I watched an almost physical wave of noise and cheering and honking roll up I-95 from as far as I could see south towards DC, to where it disappeared over the horizon to the north, up towards Baltimore, New York and points beyond.

All of this only confirms again for me—for middle class Americans, immigration is THE issue of 2016.  And, I urge all of you to find your place in the battle to save us—to save America.  You might not have Ed’s guts to get up on a highway overpass, but find your talent and put it to work to save us from becoming Europe!

***One last thing….when we attended the Georgetown Law School pro-open borders gathering in DC a couple of weeks ago, attendees were in complete shock over what they described as the “Trump phenomenon” here.

This post is filed in a category we hope to use more often—-called creating a movement.’

Addendum! Angry about Paris?  READ THIS POST and do it!  Tell Congress to stop the funding for the Refugee Admissions Program NOW!

Pickens County, SC sends message: No refugees for us (thank you very much)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 24, 2015

The article at Greenville Online entitled:  ‘Refugee issue stirs strong emotions, despite no influx expected’ gives me an idea.

South Carolina counties

Pickens County is along the North Carolina border. Refugees are already in nearby Greenville and Spartanburg Counties.

Begin community organizing in advance!

Send a message now!  Don’t wait until refugees are on the way!

The UN/US State Department (and the federal resettlement contractors) are out constantly scouting for fresh territory in which to “seed” refugees (especially since the numbers will swell this year with the Syrian migration), so how about sending a message preemptively that your town is not open for colonization, just as these resisters in Pickens County, SC have done. 

If you go to this list of resettlement offices in 48 states, know that if your town is within 100 miles of any of them, you are fair game to be forced to resettle refugees.

Here are a few snips from the story, but please read it all, by clicking here.

Members of the Pickens County Republican Party recently heard a chilling update on the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program at Liberty Auditorium.

Nikki Halley at Newsweek

If Governor Nikki Haley wanted to she could send a clear message to the federal government just as Governor Deal has done in Georgia. The feds aren’t going to listen, but if enough REPUBLICAN governors spoke up, a Tenth Amendment states’ rights challenge could be mounted.

One of the forum speakers, Tara Servatius from WORD Radio, warned the crowd of about 40 that the refugee program is part of a conspiracy orchestrated by insiders in Washington that’s designed to create a one-party political system and enlarge a populace dependent on big government.

Critics of the alarmist sentiment, however, say the meeting only serves to show how unfounded some of the fears are regarding a mass influx of immigrants that simply aren’t expected to come to Pickens County. The differing opinions on extreme opposite ends of the spectrum reveal an emotional tug-of-war that exists in the Upstate.

[….]

Diane Hardy, who heads a “pocket of resistance” with a Facebook page called Secure South Carolina, tells the group that the refugees will suck up benefits paid for by South Carolina taxpayers and strain already overtaxed social services, law enforcement, schools and health care systems.

The speakers at the meeting placed the blame on Gov. Nikki Haley, who they said signed off on the federal government’s request to allow refugees here.

[….]

No city in Pickens County is listed as a destination for any refugees.

Haley’s unwillingness to face down the UN/US State Department puts her in the RINO/Chamber of Commerce camp which has bought in to the notion that big industry (the donor class!) needs cheap immigrant labor.

Seattle has a commission on refugees and immigrants, November meeting coming up

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2015

A reader has brought to my attention that there are opportunities for concerned citizens to attend meetings where you can learn more about what is going on where you live and who the principle players are (who are the people in your community calling the shots).

No rent hikes!  What do you think?  Are they getting community organizing training somewhere? You betcha!

 

See our post last year where Somali community organizers protested an effort by the Seattle housing authority to free up some public housing for 9,000 on a waiting list. The housing authority failed. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/12/19/seattle-housing-crisis-pay-attention-refugee-welcoming-cities/

 

In Seattle there is the Immigrant and Refugee Commission.  Here is the meeting schedule for the two remaining meetings this year.  Surely they will be discussing how many Syrians will be seeded in Seattle.

In the last few days we reported on opportunities here in Orlando, FL (one of our readers attended!  thank you!) and here in Minneapolis, MN to attend PUBLIC meetings to learn more about what is happening where you live.  To be effective in standing up for your community, you need to understand how refugee resettlement works and who the players are where you live.
