Progressives take lessons from the Tea Party movement to try to beat Trump agenda

I wonder if the ‘Hill’ youngsters know that Lincoln was a Republican?

This isn’t about refugees per se, but as you get geared up to go to battle with Congress to push them to get tough on immigration and to reform/trash the US Refugee Admissions Program, this might be a helpful guide to what the other side is going to do!

They know, as you should, that the battle will ultimately be in Congress!

Sent to me by a reader, click here to learn more, and go here to access the document.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! Right!

If you’ve been a longtime Tea Party activist and weren’t sure you were getting things accomplished, you will be happy to see that the other side thinks you were highly successful!

I admit I didn’t read the whole thing yet, I just thought I should get it out quickly. Let me know if  you see anything that we should make particular note of!

Refugee Resettlement was big news in 2016

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 31, 2016

Just now as I read through news on my various alerts I saw several year-end wrap-up local news stories including from Poughkeepsie, NY and Rutland, VT which ranked refugee resettlement controversies among their top stories of the year.

The one from Idaho places refugee resettlement right up there with the 2016 Presidential election as a leading story for 2016!

refugee-resettlement

MagicValley.com gleefully notes that a petition drive failed to put the issue before county voters, but this type of activity is not a wasted effort. It generated media, sneering media, but nevertheless the process created political controversy. This is an important stage in bringing about political change. As I say to everyone, stop looking for the silver bullet. There is no silver bullet, or no right thing to do, just keep up the political pressure in whatever way you can using whatever talents and time you have.

I’ve been writing RRW since 2007 and I must say, this has not happened in those nearly ten years—that the refugee issue would be a leading story of the year anywhere, so keep up the good work.

When you are feeling frustrated that your concerns about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program are not being addressed, know that getting those concerns reported in your local media (within an overarching theme of agitating your elected officials) is a first important step toward reaching a political tipping point.

Here is some of what MagicValley.com had to say:

Refugee resettlement, which was a controversial issue in Twin Falls in 2015 and continued to be on in 2016, was also a major issue in the presidential race, and the debate over Medicaid expansion in Idaho will be shifted drastically because of the outcome. [By the way, the Office of Refugee Resettlement itself says that if your state has expanded Medicaid it makes it a more ‘welcoming’ target for the placement of refugees.—ed]

[….]

A movement to shut down the College of Southern Idaho Refugee Center started last year, after news came out that some Syrians could be among the refugees to be resettled in Twin Falls. (None have been to date.) As the Syrian civil war dragged on, displacing millions of people, refugee resettlement became a topic of worldwide debate and a major issue in the presidential race, with Trump’s hard-line views on refugee admissions and anti-Muslim rhetoric energizing some and horrifying others. As for Twin Falls, it started to attract national media attention as an example of a town divided over what was becoming a focus of national political arguments.

A drive for a countywide referendum on whether to shut down the refugee center fizzled this spring when organizers got about a quarter of the number of signatures they would need to get on the ballot. In June, however, the debate flared back up after news came out about a 5-year-old girl at the Fawnbrook Apartments being sexually assaulted by three boys from Middle Eastern refugee families.

Continue reading here.

LOL! That is all I am snipping.  I am really careful about not taking too much of published news accounts, however, this publication is the only one in the nation to ever send me a legal letter telling me I have snipped too much of their report.

Does anyone know where the case is regarding the sexual assault from last June?

AP says Montana is an example of anti-refugee sentiment spilling forth in wake of Trump victory

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 27, 2016

Update December 29, 2016: Michael Leahy at Breitbart has a good piece on Montana here also.

This is an Associated Press story that ran on Christmas day so not sure how many of you saw it.

For background, Montana had a small refugee program many years ago, but up until this year it was alone with Wyoming in not having one at all.  That changed in 2016 as Missoula ‘welcomed’ its first African and Middle Eastern refugees. I traveled to the state this summer and can attest to the sentiment outlined in this story.

S.K. Rossi, advocacy and policy director for the ACLU of Montana: “It’s pretty widely known that this is going to be a hard year…” Photo: https://www.aclumontana.org/en/about/staff

For new readers you might like to see our Montana archive, here.

From AP at The Seattle Times:

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — The push to restrict refugee resettlements and immigration in the U.S. that figured so prominently in Donald Trump’s election is now headed to states that are preparing to convene their legislative sessions early next year, immigration advocates said.

In Montana, which took in just nine refugee families from January to early December, about a dozen bill requests related to refugees, immigration and terrorism have been filed ahead of next month’s session. The measures include requiring resettlement agencies to carry insurance that would defray the cost of prosecuting refugees who commit violent crimes and allowing towns and cities to request a moratorium on resettlements in their communities.

Refugee rights advocates say those measures are a sign of what is to come as the anti-refugee rhetoric that featured prominently in the presidential election spills over to statehouses and local governments.

“It’s pretty widely known that this is going to be a hard year for those of us who are seeking to protect the rights of refugees and immigrants,” said S.K. Rossi, advocacy and policy director for the ACLU of Montana.

The president-elect campaigned on building a border wall with Mexico to stop illegal immigration, deporting immigrants who are in the nation illegally and halting the resettlement of refugees to strengthen the federal program that vets them.

[….]

“It absolutely does not end with the presidential election,” McKenzie [Michele McKenzie, deputy director of the Minneapolis organization The Advocates for Human Rights] said. “It’s a national strategy by a small but organized group of anti-immigration advocates and anti-refugee advocates.”

[….]

“We need to get serious,” said Nancy Ballance, a Republican state representative from Ravalli County.

Ballance said refugees are a “gigantic issue” in her southwestern Montana county, just south of the liberal college city of Missoula. “People expect to see some legislation brought,” she said.

It is pretty clear that legally state legislators can’t do much to change the US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP), but here we have the ACLU lobbyist making the crucial point about efforts in the Montana (yours too!) legislature.

“Filing this and making it a public conversation automatically undermines the refugee process,” Rossi said.

“They can’t legally undermine the process, but they can socially undermine the process.”

Continue reading here.

Trickle up!

You have a right to ask questions and demand that your elected officials at all levels of government be transparent, and consider your economic worries and your safety concerns when the federal government targets your communities.

Efforts like these in the Montana legislature are important to help create controversy because the ultimate goal is for the controversy to ‘trickle up’ to Congress and to the new Trump Administration. There is no doubt that the USRAP must be trashed or reformed, but that pressure must come from the states (and local governments) to Washington.  Politicians hate noise and so it is your job as grassroots activists to make political noise!

To that end, since Montana’s lone House member is likely going to the Trump Interior Department, it is critical that you, in Montana, make the selection of his replacement a referendum on the refugee program. See The Hill (scroll down to Rep. Zinke).

Endnote: I am off to jury duty, be back later!

One town in Michigan is fighting for its survival as county targeted for even more Middle Eastern refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 27, 2016

A resolution heard around the world!

This isn’t just about Michigan—as Michigan goes so goes America!

Here is how the story in the UK Daily Mail described what happened.  I know many of you already do know because you have been sending me versions of the story from many news outlets, but for those who don’t yet know:

A Michigan town has voted to ban Syrian refugees from living there, because they believe the vetting process is not good enough.

The Waterford Township Board of Trustees passed a resolution against allowing refugees from the war torn country to settle in the area, on Monday night.

brooks_patterson_county_executive_-_paul_sancya_ap_photo

What will longtime Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson do? Will he seek an injunction against RAP and federal contractors before the election?

The vote was specifically against a federal resettlement program for the refugees. It passed with a 7-0 vote.

The result is a surprising one given that the town in North America with the highest proportion of Arab-Americans lies just 30 miles to the south.

Dearborn has more than 40,000 Middle Eastern immigrants who are proud to call the city home.

The Daily Mail said this in its short blips about the story and it made me laugh!

The towns ruling is worthless as control over Syrian refugees is done so federally and not at a local level.

HARDLY WORTHLESS!!!

Of course we know the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program is being foisted secretively on local communities and local governments from the United Nations and the government in Washington, DC, but what these brave local elected officials did on Monday night is far from “worthless.” 

Why?

Because by trying to save their own town in Oakland County, Michigan, people all over the world are hearing about it as the media, including the UK Daily Mail, has been running stories about it all week and thus educating more and more Americans to what is happening to Michigan could be happening to your states too (and is happening to many, it is just that some are further down the pipeline of demographic change than others!).

Michael Patrick Leahy of Breitbart picked up the story and it was featured on Drudge on Tuesday.

And, here is the New York Daily News, be sure to watch the video clip.

Here is the Oakland Press about the international attention the resolution has received. And, includes this important information about a possible next step:

Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson has threatened a lawsuit against the federal government that would seek an injunction to halt any more refugees from locating here. Patterson says the refugees are not properly screened for medical illnesses and the Refugee Act of 1980 is not being followed. The act requires the federal government to update local officials at regular intervals about refugees locating in the area. The county Board of Commissioners approved a resolution supporting Patterson.

Worthless? Not by a long shot!

On November 8th, the future of Michigan (your state too!) will be decided! If Hillary is elected President, we will move quickly toward further Islamization of Michigan via the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program. If Donald Trump is elected, we have a fighting chance to save America and Western Civilization by slowing the Hijra (the migration). To that end, I’ve made a little video pitch with my friends in Michigan, so please help get it around especially to the voters of the Wolverine State.

I saw what is happening to Michigan first hand this past summer on my 6,000 mile swing through the heartland (a loop that took me as far west as Montana and south to Tennessee).

Reminder! These are the House members who should be automatically on the side of DEFUNDING the Refugee Admissions Program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 26, 2016

At least they should support any effort in the lame duck session of Congress coming up a week after the election to defund the program until certain problems have been resolved—primarily the weak screening process—and to pause the program as a new administration comes into office in the new year.

Don’t forget, the Obama Administration is working quickly right now to front end the huge flow of refugees Obama wants for FY17.

Here is what I said in September and it still applies (with updates!):

In my previous post I told you that it is not too late to tell key members of Congress to protect your towns by cutting funding in the Final Budget for FY2017 for refugee admissions for 2017 from terror-producing regions of the world and elsewhere which must be passed before Congress recesses for Christmas.

2016housecalendar

This is the House calendar as it stands right now. Check out how little they actually work! They will be back on the 14th of November and the 2017 Budget must be done by December 9th. And, btw, the 2017 fiscal year began on October 1st, so they are already way behind (as usual)!

Those likely to be on the side of making America safe again are House Freedom Caucus members listed below.

Those crossed off signed on to the earlier Babin/Brat letter but be sure to contact them again to urge them to join a new effort in November.

Again, those crossed off below have already taken a brave position, but focus your calls on all Freedom Caucus members. Tell them to check in with Rep. Brian Babin’s (R-TX) office to see what the plan is for the lame duck.

Only 13 days left before the election to get a commitment from them!

Propaganda alert! Using twitter hashtags to identify ‘welcoming’ states

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 25, 2016

This is very interesting, but doubtful if its conclusions are defensible…..

This study is a fascinating example of how propaganda works.  It shows one more way that the Open Borders Left and the refugee industry are using “studies” and social media to try to tell you what Americans are thinking (always pro-open borders of course).

However, as I look at this I’m thinking the side which wants to see immigration controlled is likely not using hashtags on twitter to any great degree (heck! you are probably not on twitter!) that would help balance an avalanche of pro-open borders, pro-more refugee resettlement hashtags tweeted by a small group of savvy social media Leftists.

Here is the story, and then (see below) how about a concerted effort to counter their false meme with some hashtags of our own. Check out the bias in the first line—to “truly understand” they claim “dialogue on twitter” is definitive!

To truly understand American sentiment toward refugees and to see where they are most welcome in the U.S., we decided to explore dialogue on Twitter. We conducted this research with the help of our friends at International Rescue Committee so that we could better understand the response to the refugee crisis across the country. Which states are talking about refugees the most? And where do the most positive tweets come from? Do positive tweets about refugees fluctuate according to world events?

By analyzing tweets with related hashtags (such as #openborders, #refugeeswelcome, and #(in)humane) in the U.S. since January 2015, we are able to tell a story that is not often covered in the news — that many Americans are sympathetic toward refugees and do want to help. Continue reading to see which states and cities are tweeting their support.To truly understand American sentiment toward refugees and to see where they are most welcome in the U.S., we decided to explore dialogue on Twitter. We conducted this research with the help of our friends at International Rescue Committee [No surprise that the richest of US resettlement contractors is involved! LOL!—ed] so that we could better understand the response to the refugee crisis across the country. Which states are talking about refugees the most? And where do the most positive tweets come from? Do positive tweets about refugees fluctuate according to world events?

Now check out their states which they claim are most “welcoming” because of positive words and hashtags!!!

If you are tweeting from the top ten, and want to see the refugee program stopped or defunded, you have work to do!

 

tweeting-about-refugees-03

 

There is a list of states with the most negative tweets on refugees too!  Check it out! Click here. Wisconsin is in the ten states which tweeted more negative tweets on refugees—sure hope the message got to Speaker Paul Ryan!

If you are in one of the top ten ‘welcoming’ states according to this twitter study, or any state for that matter, it’s time to tweet and use some hashtags of our own.

I’m going to start using hashtags such as: #RefugeeInvasion, #SyrianInvasion, #UnvettedSyrians, #sickrefugees, #DefundRefugees, #refugeepropaganda, #refugeeseeding…  And, surely you can think of more of your own!

By the way, the article lead us to this story from Louise, Mississippi where last year the town fathers said they want Syrian refugees among others to be resettled in Louise.  When I have a minute I’ll look and see if they got any yet and whether I should put Louise on my list of new sites.

DEFUND Refugee Program: Calling on Texas where key House and Senate legislators reside

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 21, 2016

This is the first in a series of posts I will be writing in the coming weeks haranguing readers and all those concerned with the rapidly expanding UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program (RAP).

2016housecalendar

Although it is wonderful to see and hear about all the great things you are doing to educate the public and pressure your local and state officials about problems you see with the RAP, but frankly there is only one place (besides electing Donald Trump) where you should be putting most of your energy over the coming weeks.

Keep it simple! DEFUND the Refugee program!

Use all of your local action to pressure your Member of Congress and US Senators to DEFUND the RAP on the final budget vote which must happen by December 9th.

At right is the House of Representatives calendar for the remainder of the year (subject to change, as they say, post election). There is little time!

The Obama Administration has said they want 110,000 refugees (20,000-30,000 will be Syrian Muslims) admitted to the US by September 30, 2017.  If the Dept. of State (DOS) and the ORR (in Health and Human Services) do not have the money for that many, they will not be able to bring in that vast number.  It is that simple.

The present Continuing Resolution has the program funded at the 2016 level (which is not enough money for 110,000 either).

Go Texas!

Already the state has shown that the will of the people is to not bring in more refugees (based on Governor Abbott’s strong stance on the program).  However, the DOS and the federal resettlement contractors there are thumbing their noses at the governor and have made Texas once again the top resettlement state in the nation this fiscal year already, see hereMake no mistake! This is about turning the red state blue!

babin-20160203

Tell your member of Congress to follow Texas Rep. Brian Babin’s lead to defund the Refugee Admissions Program.

A few weeks ago, relentless and brave Rep. Brian Babin made an attempt to cut the funding for the RAP on the Continuing Resolution with this letter and with a visit to the House Rules Committee seeking a rider for that CR.  Rules did not grant him his request.

However, we expect to see another effort by Dr. Babin on the looming FY2017 Budget right after the election.

We are told that he is committed to seeking out every opportunity to defund the refugee program, including in any must-pass budget legislation, and will be looking for other Members of Congress to join him in this effort.

All of you must go to your Congressman right now in the weeks before the election and pressure them to support any effort by Congressman Babin to rein-in the program.

However, in our first in a series of posts, it is members of the powerful Texas delegation that are critical to this effort.

Before I get to the Texas targets…. 

I can’t emphasize enough that by controlling the flow of money for costly resettlement, it consequently reduces the number to be resettled.  At present the Administration is working overtime to get as many refugees resettled before Inauguration Day in January.  If Hillary wins they will have a jump on possibly an even greater flow (she will use emergency powers) for the remainder of the year (assuming they get $$$ out of Congress).

If Donald Trump wins it will likely take a few months to slow the flow because he will have to get his people placed, especially in the State Department where Anne Richard would have to be gone ASAP.  I anticipate there will be much screaming and crying that there are thousands of refugees in the pipeline and it would be heartless to stop the flow especially if Congress has granted them a huge budget for FY2017.

So, it all comes back to Congress and funding! The House of Representatives is most important, but you must reach your Senators too!

Although they might like to stay in the shadows, here are the key members of the House that Texas patriots must target in coming weeks! These are some of the most important REPUBLICAN members with the power to rein-in the program!

House Appropriations Committee members from Texas:

Kay Granger

John Culbertson

John Carter

House Judiciary Committee members (some of these are already friendly to our concerns) from Texas (Judiciary Committee has oversight responsibility for the RAP):

Lamar Smith

Louie Gohmert

Ted Poe

Blake Farenthold

John Ratcliffe

House Rules Committee members from Texas:

Pete Sessions (Chairman!)

Michael Burgess

House Homeland Security Committee members from Texas (because more than perhaps others, these members understand the security risks):

Michael McCaul (Chairman!)

Lamar Smith

Will Hurd

John Ratcliffe

Do you see how important Texas members of Congress are?  Those are the members above and also Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn who have the real power to slow the flow of refugees to Texas and to America!

Call on Cruz and Cornyn to follow Rep. Brian Babin’s initiative to defund the program on the Senate side.

See all of those above on the campaign trail and make sure they get the message from you before they return to Washington on November 14th!

If you don’t live in Texas, keep pressure on your member (and on Speaker Paul Ryan!) to back Rep. Babin.  In the coming days and weeks we will have more targets in other states.  Stay tuned!

Obama State Department bringing refugees in at the astronomical rate of over 400 a day!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 6, 2016

Update October 8th: Up to 900 a day by later in week, see here at Breitbart.

It wasn’t hard to guess that as he leaves office (and fears build of a Trump presidency), Obama will make an outrageous last ditch effort to open the flood gates to refugees from across the globe and most especially from Muslim-dominated countries. Expect to see unheard of numbers before Inauguration day in January.

Seventh District US Congressional Republican candidate, David Brat, speaks during a press conference at the Captiol in Richmond, Va., Wednesday, May 28, 2014. Brat challenged Congressman Eric Cantor's stand on immigration, claiming that Cantor backs amnesty. Cantor is getting pressured from both sides over immigration as his Republican primary election nears and the window for legislative action narrows. (AP Photo/Steve Helber)

Seventh District US Congressional Republican, Dave Brat understands what the stakes are as Congress cedes its budget power to Obama on refugee program.

Michael Leahy writing at Breitbart this morning has done the math and it is simply stunning! The flood has begun in the first week of the fiscal year!

It is no wonder, as I told Leahy, that the US State Department is scrambling to get dozens of NEW resettlement offices up and running!

Four hundred and eleven refugees have been resettled in the United States each of the first five days of the fiscal year that began on October 1. At this rate, the country is on track to resettle more than 150,000 refugees in the fiscal year, a rate almost double the 84,995 resettled in FY 2016, and more than 40,000 greater than the 110,000 the Obama administration has proposed for FY 2017.

A total of 2,058 refugees from all countries have been resettled in the United States during the first five days of FY 2017, according to the Department of State’s interactive website.

This is what I told Breitbart:

“My post from last week shows the monthly admissions of refugees since 2006. The October average is traditionally the lowest resettlement month of the year. One October, 2006, we only brought in 1,009 refugees, more than 1,000 fewer than President Obama has brought in over the first five days of October 2017,” Ann Corcoran, who founded the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog in 2007, tells Breitbart News.

“They build in August and September because they are usually desperate to hit their fiscal year ceiling by then. So to have this extraordinarily high rate this October, it confirms our greatest fear that President Obama will pour as many refugees as he can before he leaves office, and before a potential Trump administration takes the reins,” she adds.

“This explains why the State Department is on a quiet mission to open as many new resettlement sites in the country as they can,” she says.

This Member of Congress gets it! Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) knows that Congress has ceded the power of the purse.

At least one member of Congress says it’s time for the bureaucrats who run the resettlement program to listen to the voice of the people.

“We are losing our country whose sole premise is that we are a nation under the law and that we the people are the true Sovereign we are not ruled from a distant palace,” Virginia Republican Rep. Dave Brat tells Breitbart News.

“This refugee crisis response has not ever been put before the American people and our Congress has also given up any semblance of oversight as we voluntarily cede our control over the entire budget process to the new Sovereign in the executive branch,”Brat adds.

Continue reading here, there is much, much more, and hotlinks to follow.

Here comes my message of yesterday, today and tomorrow!

congress

Every one of you in overloaded and stressed resettlement cities, every one of you in new sites,*** every one of you, even if you don’t have refugees, but are worried about the future of our country as we pour people in who are not going to assimilate, who, when their numbers become large enough, are going to push an alternative form of government (shariah), or who might eventually kill us, is looking for a silver bullet to stop the invasion!

There is no silver bullet.  But, in the next 4 weeks you have to make the refugee issue so TOXIC to your Members of Congress/Senators that they just might grow a spine and exercise their power of the purse and slow the invasion by defunding the Refugee Admissions Program.  Nothing else matters right now (well, except electing Donald Trump).

Call your Congressman and your US Senators, but more importantly meet them in their home districts and confront them on this issue.  Be at every townhall asking questions. Get local media to pay attention by picketing their offices and their homes if you must!

I know, I know, you think they are hopeless, but you must do it now. Just try or give up now!

Here is ‘Mom for Trump’ today!  Tell everyone you know to do what ‘Mom’ says!  If you hold a meeting about refugees, give everyone who attends the same marching order. ‘Mom’ is right:

Ann, could you tell all your readers on a daily basis to call our useless Congress @ 202 224 3121 and have them say DEFUND REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM. I call daily and if enough of us do so, we can make a difference.

And, I know they are useless too, but call Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell too!

While you are calling that switchboard number, ask for Dave Brat’s office and thank him for speaking up, for being a leader on the only issue that really matters for the future of our great nation—immigration control!

The 2016 Presidential election hinges on the issue and that is why Hillary is hiding and rarely brings it up (and won’t say how many refugees she wants!), but why should she when her old pals at the US State Department are working overtime to set the stage for her.

***These are the new towns/cities we have learned about so far (we have heard that there are 47 new ones!). The selection process is mostly done quietly and out of public view.  If you are a new reader and are wondering what the hundreds of other sites are, go here (they are no longer keeping this list up to date, more secrecy!).

Imperial Beach, CA mayor withdraws from “Welcoming City” program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 24, 2016

This just goes to show what a handful of citizens can do when they put their minds to it!  In California, no less! citizens learned that their mayor and council had signed a “Welcoming cities” proclamation last month.

Having none of it, the citizens pushed back and just yesterday, the Mayor rescinded the proclamation.  Hat tip: Brenda.

Here is one news story at KUSI News two days ago.

IMPERIAL BEACH (KUSI) — The mayor of Imperial Beach is under attack. A small group of people are accusing him of inviting refugees with an official proclamation.

The mayor himself is a little shocked. He believes it’s a big misunderstanding.

It may be a laid back little beach town, but Imperial Beach suddenly finds itself in the middle of an international hot topic.

Last month, Mayor Serge Dedina issued a proclamation, declaring Imperial Beach to be a “Welcoming City.”

The “Welcoming Communities” program is an Obama initiative intended to resettle large numbers of refugees from Syria, the rest of the Middle East and Latin America in cities and towns across America as part of his “fundamental transformation.”

At the time, Mayor Dedina thought it was pretty harmless, but some people believe it goes deeper than that.

They’re suspicious that the words, “welcoming city,” is another way of saying, “sanctuary city.”

No sense wandering in the weeds regarding the definitions because for the average American it is pretty much the same thing!  Welcoming cities are sanctuary cities and vice versa.

Yesterday, the mayor put out this press release:

Hear from Brigitte Gabriel and a host of important speakers on the topic of immigration, refugee resettlement and the security threats we face from both.

ACT is the only national grassroots organization that puts reform of the Refugee Program as a top priority!

A very special guest will be Phil Haney, Department of Homeland Security whistleblower and author, who will speak on ‘Refugee Vetting: Is our security at risk?’

And, this is what Ms. Gabriel said in a recent e-mail recognizing the critical need to let Congress know now how you feel about the ever-expanding UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program and how it will impact you and your town.

This is an “all hands on deck” moment. Congress can decide to not fund those numbers or not. Congress can stop him.

[….]

Our counter voice needs to be heard. We need to show up in force and send a clear message to Congress. Not only NO but Hell NO to more unvetted refugees in America.

Due to this impending event [lobbying push by the advocates for 200,000 refugees for next year—ed] , we have dramatically slashed our national conference rate to our rock bottom cost of only $229/registration. We are doing all we can to have you with us. This is a crucial showdown between the patriots who love this country, and those who are trying to destroy it.

[….]

If you are not there, Congress will assume Americans don’t care. They will only hear the loud voices of our rivals and will assume we are perfectly OK with more refugees. This is why it is critical that we have you with us at ACTCON 2016 so we can tell Congress “NO” to Obama’s proposal.

Silence from those who oppose refugee resettlement is the same as support for them. This is the time when patriotic Americans must speak up.

I want to say that some of the hardest working, patriotic and most dedicated citizen activists I met on my 30-day tour of American communities facing refugee overload problems were the ACT for America members.

You have until tomorrow, September 2nd, midnight, to meet some of those great people in Washington!
