German Jewish group says migration of Muslims into Germany must be “limited”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 24, 2015

Invasion of Europe news…..

So, I guess we are seeing the limits of some Jewish leaders in Europe as an Austrian Jewish group has also called for a halt to the Muslim migration which shows no sign of slowing down.


Rebuke from German NO Borders Leftwing activist Guenther Burkhardt (Pro-Asyl). Complains that the Jews are joining the rightwing.

Gee, I sure wish they could persuade the Jewish US resettlement contractor, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, that the majority of Muslims don’t like you (in fact they hate you!).  Sheer insanity…..

HIAS is pushing for 100,000 mostly Muslim Syrians to be resettled in the US.

From AFP at

Berlin (AFP) – The Central Council of Jews in Germany called Monday for a limit to the migrant influx because of problems with integrating the mainly Muslim newcomers, earning a quick rebuke from a pro-refugee charity.

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government has opened the doors to asylum seekers fleeing conflict in Syria, and arrivals from the war-torn country and other trouble spots are expected to reach one million this year.

“Sooner or later we won’t have a choice but to set an upper limit,” the council’s president Josef Schuster told Die Welt daily.

“Many of the refugees are fleeing the terror of the Islamic State and want to live in peace and freedom, but at the same time they come from cultures where hatred of Jews and intolerance are an integral part.


But German non-government group Pro Asyl criticised Schuster’s comments, saying it was unfortunate the Jewish group was sharing the same position as the conservative Bavarian CSU party.

Photo:  We have written about Burkhardt before, here in 2014, when he was working to silence “right-wing propaganda” long before the migration became a full-fledged invasion.   Readers, that post was over 18 months ago demonstrating that German leaders knew long ago what the results of their “welcoming” posture would be to the third-world.  They had plenty of time to stop it if they had any guts and the will to do it.

UNHCR freak-out as Balkan states start to balk

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 20, 2015

Invasion of Europe news….

This story is confusing to me.  Actually it discusses THE big question I have, and I have not seen any good explanation for what could happen.

migrant route map

First, we hear reports that Sweden and Germany are closing their borders.  If that is so, and is happening already (or will happen), eventually what will become of all those migrants working their way northward?  Won’t they build up as water might behind a dam?

Maybe these Balkan states are getting ready for that inevitable outcome.

Earlier this morning I saw this confusing (to me) report at the UNHCR website, here.    So I looked for a more understandable news story and found this one at The Guardian.    It still doesn’t answer my question, but does help to lay out the problem.

Have a quick look at the UNHCR interactive map that shows the migrant flow on a daily basis (yesterday 4,499 new refugees arrived in Greece) and imagine if the spigot gets shut off at the German/Austrian border or the Austria/Slovenia border, then what?  All of those flowing northward will inevitably pile up in those states ‘downstream’ right?

And, I guess what those countries downstream are saying is that they don’t want thousands of economic migrants (they are NOT refugees) piled up in their countries.  But, they will get a logjam of legitimate asylum seekers anyway.  EU leaders should have stopped the boats months ago, it all seems too little too late to me!

Here is what The Guardian is reporting:

Countries along the Balkan migration trail have begun refusing to admit people of certain nationalities, amid a backlash against refugees in the aftermath of the Paris attacks last Friday.

Humanitarian workers active along the borders of Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia reported that refugees and migrants from countries other than Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq were now being stopped, raising the spectre of a migrant logjam in Greece.

The move comes after Slovenia, the most northerly country along the trail, suddenly tried to return 168 Moroccan migrants to Croatia on Thursday, in the first major development along the Balkan migration route since Hungary shut its border in September.  [Moroccan’s are not refugees, they are not being persecuted!—ed]

The decision sparked panic among the countries to Slovenia’s south, who feared that Slovenia was about to block access to anyone who could not easily prove their need for refugee status, and consequently turned back all migrants from Africa and southern Asia.

Slovenia said on Thursday afternoon it had not made any permanent decisions, and promised to admit refugees as long as Germany and Austria continued to subsequently take them. But a police spokesman confirmed that Slovenia would discuss with its Balkan neighbours how to limit the flow of so-called economic migrants in the future.

More here.

The great build up behind a dam seems inevitable to me.  One day Germany will stop the flow and surely Austria will too then and the pile up will happen in those countries less able to manage any of this invasion.  Is anyone planning for this likely outcome?

Breaking news from France 24: Eight suspected terrorists arrested in Turkey posing as “refugees”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 18, 2015

Invasion of Europe news…..

Everybody is pretty jumpy (assume you are watching news about the terrorist take-down in Paris last night), so not exactly sure where this story is going.  But, for now, something is very suspicious about these eight arrested in Istanbul a few hours ago.

Obama and Erdogan

Obama with pal Turkish Pres. Recep Tayyip Erdogan. I would love to know if in their recent meeting Obama had the guts to ask him why his country is allowing the launch of boats that bring ‘refugees’ to Europe by the thousands every day. If Turkey stopped the boats there would be no invaders arriving in Greece!

From France 24:

Turkish police detained eight suspected members of the Islamic State jihadist (IS) group, state media said Wednesday, adding they were planning to sneak into Europe posing as refugees.

Counter-terror police detained the suspects in Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport after they flew in from the Moroccan city of Casablanca on Tuesday, the official Anatolia news agency reported.

The police found a hand-written note on one of the suspects detailing a migration route from Istanbul to Germany via Greece, Serbia and Hungary, including smuggler boats across the Mediterranean Sea, as well as several train and bus journeys.

The eight men told police that they were just tourists who had been planning to spend a few days in Istanbul and had booked rooms at a hotel, but no reservations were found under their names.

Turkey is the main launching point for migrants coming to Europe, and currently hosts over two million Syrian refugees.

Watch for more news today on this and let me know if you see any updates.

Our ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive is here.  Go here and see the interactive map of the daily movement of migrants toward Germany. Yesterday over 3,800 arrived in Greece from Turkey.  BTW, Turkey is one of our major processing countries for refugees entering the US.

AP (After Paris) two Governors say don’t send Syrian refugees to my state

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 16, 2015

….and a third, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, wants answers from the federal government.

I had hoped to spend a lot of time this morning writing about the Governors, but unfortunately I have other duties today (of all days) that will keep me from posting all of the breaking news that is coming to us in the wake of the Paris massacre.  But, LOL!, there are so many people writing about refugees now that I can soon retire!

Here (below) is the NYT on the governors (we told you about Michigan yesterday, here).  What is so important about this news is that we are going to learn whether the governors have ANY POWER AT ALL TO SAY “NO” because we have long been told that they don’t by the federal refugee industry and its contractors.

If you are in one of these three states (Alabama, Michigan and Louisiana), you need to shore-up your governor now, because I suspect they are going to get hounded by the No Borders agitators and the refugee contractors (and so-called ‘church’ people) working there.   Even if no Syrians have been admitted, or only a small number, you must make your voice heard now!

From the New York Times:

The governors of Alabama and Michigan said on Sunday they would not allow refugees fleeing the conflict in Syria to be resettled in their states, citing the attacks on Paris.


Alabama Governor Bentley: American citizens’ security comes first.

“As your governor, I will not stand complicit to a policy that places the citizens of Alabama in harm’s way,” Gov. Robert J. Bentley of Alabama, a Republican, said in a statement.

In Michigan, which has a sizable Arab-American population, Gov. Rick Snyder, also a Republican, said his state would not accept Syrian refugees, and he urged the State Department to review its procedures.

Syrians have already settled in Michigan, with one agency relocating about 200 of them in the past year, The Detroit Free-Press reported.

“Michigan is a welcoming state and we are proud of our rich history of immigration,” Mr. Snyder said in a statement. “But our first priority is protecting the safety of our residents.”

Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana has asked White House officials for information on how many Syrian refugees have relocated to his state, The Associated Press reported. Governor Jindal, a Republican, said he sought the information “in hopes that the night of horror in Paris is not duplicated here.”

I wish I had more time to talk to you about Alabama and Louisiana as so-called ‘Wilson-Fish’ states (learn what that means here) because in those states (there are 12 of them), the state government has been cut out of the refugee resettlement decision-making process altogether with the program administered from Washington through a non-profit group.  I’m not saying governors in other states have much (or any control), but in these 12 states, the state and local taxpayers are completely unprotected.

If Jindal and Bentley really want to do something they need to begin to understand the system in their states, and stop it!

We are going to see now if governors have any say at all!

One of the Paris killers was a Syrian refugee who had passed through Greece

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 14, 2015

Breaking news and lead on Drudge just now:  Two of the terrorists are refugees who came through Greece, here.

The Guardian is reporting the news with a caveat.

Chuckles reverberated through the auditorium at Georgetown University Law School on October 29 when UNHCR Guterres explained in detail why it would be ridiculous for a terrorist to infiltrate the migrant flow to Europe…. yuk! yuk! yuk!

The holder of a Syrian passport found near the body of one of the gunmen who died in Friday night’s attacks in Paris passed though Greece in October, a Greek minister told Reuters.

“The holder of the passport passed through the island of Leros on 3 October 2015, where he was identified according to EU rules,” said Nikos Toscas, Greece’s deputy minister in charge of policing.

A Greek police source told Reuters that European countries had been asked to check the passport holder to see if they had been registered.

The Guardian goes on to throw in some weasel words about how they aren’t sure yet that the dead man with the passport was the same man who crossed into Greece only a little over a month ago.

Is Antonio Guterres still laughing?

We told you here five days ago (when we learned of another refugee terrorist) that the UN High Commissioner for Refugees sent titters through the mostly young/naive audience at Georgetown Law school when he answered a questions from Jim Simpson and mocked anyone who fears just that—that terrorists would infiltrate the refugee flow to Europe (and America).

***Correction*** It wasn’t in response to one of Jim’s many good questions of the day, but actually at the end of Guterres prepared remarks in which he mocks the idea of terrorists coming in as refugees.

Go here to the video of the speech.  Go to about the 23:34 mark and listen to about 25:35 and hear him joke about the notion of terrorists in the refugee stream (you cannot hear the audience chuckling as I did sitting there).

We were there and heard it all!

Remember readers it is Guterres and his agency at the UN choosing our Syrian refugees and they have 20,000 picked out for us.

Angry about Paris? Time for a moratorium on Muslim migration to America? Start with cutting the funds for it!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 14, 2015

Mark Steyn said the “M” word (actually both of them!)—Moratorium and Muslim just a few minutes ago on Fox News (here).

We all know why Europe and France specifically are in the horrible place they are in now (being invaded and attacked from within) and it is because they have long “welcomed” Islamic Shariah-loving migrants to live among them.

So how do we get that MORATORIUM?

Eleanor Acer

Eleanor Acer of Human Rights First is lobbying Congress at this very minute to add a billion dollars to federal funding for MORE Syrian refugees to be admitted to the US! A billion dollars would nearly double what the Obama Administration is asking for.

You can get it by starting with the Muslim migration occurring through the Refugee Admissions Program between now and December 11th when Congress must vote on the funding for the program for 2016.

I was in Washington this week to brief Hill staffers along with Don Barnett (a Fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies) at the invitation of ACT for America about the UN/US State Department refugee resettlement program.  (I am going to post the handout I presented, but Paris has now intervened, will do it over the weekend).

The conclusion from several meetings we had was that—there is only one place at this very minute where you can direct your anger and your hard work—-and that is at Congress (both the House and the Senate) and at the funding for the migration!

Tell them to cut the funding for the US Refugee Admissions Program NOW!

Bills such as Rep. Babin’s and Rep. Michael McCaul’s are a good start for next year, but to really send a message from the American people, make Congress use its POWER OF THE PURSE!

And, btw, the No Borders agitators (like Eleanor Acer in photo) are busy just this week praising Senators Lindsey Graham and Patrick Leahy who will be seeking to put a billion dollars into the funding package coming up in early December for MORE Syrian refugees!

Call your Members of Congress, your US Senators and all in the leadership—Senator Mitch McConnell (KY is the leading state getting Syrian refugees right now!), Speaker Paul Ryan, and members of all key committees—tell them to cut the money for the US Refugee Admissions Program right now until they can assure America’s security!

And, don’t tell me that that is “unreasonable.” Our job is to tell them what we want and what we want them to do, not to figure out what sounds like a reasonable proposal or to help the squishy ones with their talking points and their images!

***Update*** How could I forget—the powerful Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Charles Grassley, has already called for a halt to funding for the program!

Calling Senator Ted Cruz!

If you are a Senator Cruz fan, this is his chance to show leadership when the Senate takes up 2016 funding very soon.  (Of the Presidential candidates, you know for sure Marco Rubio won’t do it, but maybe Rand Paul will take a leadership role especially since Kentucky is a leading Syrian resettlement state).

Endnote!  It isn’t just mostly Syrian Muslims entering the US as refugees but thousands are coming from Iraq, Somalia, Burma and Afghanistan to name just a few sending countries.

Carson and Cruz, first Presidential candidates to speak out on Paris slaughter—say no Syrian refugees to America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 14, 2015

There may be others by now, but here is the first story I’m seeing before dawn today reporting on reactions by US Presidential candidates.  ***Update*** Here is a story at Breitbart that must have been posted before terror erupted in Paris last night—see where the Presidential candidates were yesterday afternoon BP (before Paris).  Bush, Kasich and Rubio all said they want MORE refugees.

***Update #2***  Mediaite reported on Ann Coulter tweets last night (after Paris):  “Donald Trump was elected President tonight,” here.  Paris may in fact have been a clarifying moment for many—try to imagine each of the 2016 candidates as President of the US if a similar horror happens here.  Who would you wish to be in the Oval Office?

From Buzzfeed:

carson cruz

Senator Ted Cruz and Dr. Ben Carson: No Syrian refugees should be admitted to US. Where is your candidate?  Let us know and I’ll update this post.

Following the deadly attacks in Paris Friday night, two prominent Republicans have called for the United States to table plans to accept thousands of Syrian refugees, citing terror concerns.

Sen. Ted Cruz wrote in a statement on Friday that the U.S. needs to “immediately declare a halt to any plans to bring refugees that may have been by ISIS to the United States.” Cruz has raised security concerns before about the prospect of accepting more refugees at this point from Syria.

Presidential candidate Ben Carson said in Orlando, Florida, that Congress should act to block the Obama administration’s plan to accept more refugees.

“If we’re going to be bringing 200,000 people over here from that region — if I were one of the leaders of the global jihadist movement and I didn’t infiltrate that group of people with my people, that would be almost malpractice,” Carson said, according to the Washington Post.

Congress can act to block Obama’s Muslim migration plan (refugee resettlement) in just a few weeks as Congress must act by December 11th to fund the government through fiscal year 2016 (this is separate from the dept ceiling issue of just a few weeks ago).

Congress could do its job for once by using the POWER OF THE PURSE to restrain Obama!

***Update*** This is what you should tell Congress to do!  Cut the funding!

They will pounce on Carson for the 200,000 number, however…..

As for Carson’s mention of the 200,000, note he said “from the region.”  It isn’t that high for one year, but Obama was talking about 2016 and 2017 when he said 85,000 refugees this year and 100,000 next year.  Don’t forget we are taking tens of thousands of other Muslim refugees from Iraq, Somalia, Burma and Afghanistan in that number as well—it is not just Syrians—from the region.

Consider that you rarely hear of the 30,000 plus coming as asylum seekers annually by first getting across our borders illegally or overstaying a visa and then asking for asylum.  Then there is Temporary Protected Status and that astounding monstrosity—the Diversity Visa Lottery—which brings in another 50,000 legal migrants a year, many from countries that hate us!  And, we haven’t even mentioned student visas!

So before someone latches (with criticism) on Carson’s high number, demand that the Administration give an accounting of how many Muslim migrants are being admitted legally to the US each year!  It is probably approaching 200,000, but no one (on the outside) knows for sure.

For more on the 2016 Presidential candidates see our category entitled, ‘2016 Presidential campaign.‘  (We have older categories for both the 2008 and 2012 campaigns as they related to refugees and immigration generally.)  I was surprised to see that we have already written 91 posts on the 2016 campaign.   Without a doubt, immigration is THE issue for 2016!

Endnote:  Watch this video!

Calais (France) migrant camp on fire tonight

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 13, 2015

I’m only seeing this news on the UK Mirror so far…..

Update:  Daily Mail says it was an electrical fire unrelated to Paris slaughter (almost an unbelievable coincidence).  By the way, if you are a new reader and wonder why there is a huge migrant camp packed with Middle Easterners and Africans at Calais, those are all supposed ‘asylum seekers’ who aren’t asking for asylum in France because they want asylum in the UK where they think the welfare goodies are better. Thus the many-years-long stalemate.

And, it isn’t clear if it is a result of the attacks in Paris by Islamic terrorists.

Fire has reportedly broken out at the ‘jungle’ refugee camp in the port of Calais in the hours following the terror attacks in Paris.

At around 11pm volunteers at the camp began sharing pictures of the blaze on social media.

And soon after an anti-migrant group known as ‘The Angry of Calais’ posted videos of the inferno on Facebook.

One video appears to show emergency services vehicles arriving at the camp, which houses around 6,000 migrants – mainly young men from Syria and North Africa.

Is the European civil war here already?

Watch that horrific video again…..

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 13, 2015

…..while you are watching the news from Paris where early reports are that the killers are Syrians, have a look at that video about the invasion of Europe we told you about here last night.

Breitbart has linked a new copy of the video, click here.



On the streets of Paris…..


Europe is reaping the whirlwind now because they “welcomed” the invaders for decades and ironically France has moved quickly to close its borders tonight (too late!).

Are we going to wake up now?

European civil war?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 13, 2015

Sooner or later, the signs are growing…..


Demonstrators in poland

Demonstrators in the streets of Warsaw Wednesday numbered in the 50,000 range and featured nationalistic, anti-EU slogans such as “Poland for Poles” and “Stop Islamization.”


Read the whole story at World Net Daily.

For all of our posts going back several years on the ‘Invasion of Europe,’ click here.

See this morning’s previous post on Sweden pulling up the ladder, but what will that mean as the invaders are still heading to “welcoming” Germany and Sweden.  Will the backup, just like water building behind a dam, cause crisis and chaos in those countries through which they are now flowing?

Don’t you think it is fascinating that we aren’t seeing daily reports of the European crisis in the mainstream media—even Fox News isn’t bringing us these images.   (Correction, maybe Fox is, but I don’t watch it very often anymore).
