Retired Dept. of State worker fully supports President Trump’s efforts to rein-in refugee program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 8, 2017

As a refugee coordinator, I saw the exploitations, inconsistencies and security lapses in the program….

(25-year veteran of the US Department of State)

I know I said earlier this morning that I wasn’t posting today so I could catch up on reading e-mails etc., but this just goes to show what important news is in those e-mails when I find the time to read them!

Dynamite!

From the Chicago Tribune:

Letter: I have seen first-hand the abuse and fraud in the U.S. refugee program

I fully support President Donald Trump’s executive order that temporarily halts admissions from the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program and bans travel from nationals of countries that potentially pose a security risk to the United States; however, I don’t think the action goes far enough. Further, I believe there are many people throughout the country who feel the same way.

malta-refugees

Writer says that the movement of Malta’s ‘refugees’ to the US is “legally questionable.” Most are Somalis as we see here in photo and story. http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20130618/local/more-than-90-per-cent-of-immigrants-in-malta-get-refugee-humanitarian.474370

As a recently retired 25-year veteran of the U.S. Department of State who served almost eight years as a refugee coordinator throughout the Middle East, Africa, Russia and Cuba, I have seen first-hand the abuses and fraud that permeate the refugee program and know about the entrenched interests that fight every effort to implement much-needed reform. Despite claims of enhanced vetting, the reality is that it is virtually impossible to vet an individual who has no type of an official record, particularly in countries compromised by terrorism. U.S. immigration officials simply rely on the person’s often rehearsed and fabricated “testimony.” I have personally seen this on hundreds of occasions.

As a refugee coordinator, I saw the exploitations, inconsistencies and security lapses in the program, and I advocated strongly for change. Nonetheless, during the past decade and specifically under the Obama administration, the Refugee Admissions Program continued to expand blindly, seemingly without concern for security or whether it served the best interests of its own citizens. For instance, the legally questionable resettlement of refugees from Malta to the United States grew substantially, despite the fact that as a European country with a functioning asylum system, “refugees” should have remained there under the internationally accepted concept of “the country of first asylum.” Similarly, the “special” in-country refugee programs in Cuba and Russia continue, although they are laden with fraud and far too often simply admit economic migrants rather than actual refugees.

As an insider who understands its operations, politics and weaknesses, I believe the refugee program must change dramatically and the courts must allow the president to fully implement the order.

Press bullet points on President Trump’s temporary moratorium on refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 31, 2017

Because I am getting e-mails from the press looking for comment. Here are some bullet points that anyone is free to use.

For those many reporters who don’t know who the heck I am or what RRW is, just briefly:

This year, in July, I will celebrate the tenth anniversary of blogging about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP). I have written 8,235 posts to date and have no interest in spending long periods of time on the phone with reporters. Use RRW’s search function.  Maybe start with Frequently asked questions, here.

I write this blog mostly because citizens have a right to know what plans Washington has for their towns and cities. I am a firm believer in the idea that knowledge is power.

screenshot-55

In 2016 I received the honor of being named one of 15 anti-Muslim extremists in America by the SPLC. We learned recently that George Soros paid for the ‘study’ and presumably this nice artwork! Remember folks, they have no power but the power of name calling! https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2016/10/27/a-great-honor-splc-names-me-one-of-15-anti-muslim-extremists-in-america/

Over the years I have concluded that the program is out of control and is desperately in need of reform. 

I am paid by no one to write RRW, this has been a charitable effort on my part. I have no office, no staff, no interns!

I fully support President Trump’s EO on a moratorium on the US Refugee Admissions Program and have no comment on other aspects of the so-called ‘ban’ because many issues raised are outside of my area of expertise.

That said, although I support the short moratorium, it does not go far enough. It is an insufficient amount of time to fully investigate how the program has been administered since it was signed in to law by Jimmy Carter in 1980.

The USRAP has operated in virtual secrecy for the ten years I have followed it where local communities are kept in the dark until refugees start arriving.  Largely driven by nine major federal contractors*** who along with the US State Department collude to keep citizens from knowing what is planned for their communities.

When citizens learn what is happening and start asking questions about costs, security, cultural upheaval they are unfairly labeled racists and haters.

The USRAP as a multi-billion dollar a year industry is unsustainable and it is time Congress performed a much needed review.

Trump’s ceiling of 50,000 refugees for FY2017 is still too high, see my explanation, here.

The USRAP is not first and foremost driven by humanitarianism (that is the cover!), it is an effort to diversify communities, to add left-leaning voters, to change America by changing the people, to satisfy Chambers of Commerce, and to supply cheap LEGAL immigrant labor to large corporations.

President Trump should undertake the studies directed in the EO, like this one, but he must pressure Congress to review and rewrite the Refugee Act.  And, the only way to pressure the chickens in Congress is to continue the moratorium until they understand that they must reform it.

As Barack Obama learned the hard way, a phone and a pen is not sufficient for the long term. To really change a policy, a President must go through the laborious and intensive battle to change the law as the Constitution envisioned—Congress passes the bills and the President signs them into law (or not).  If that doesn’t happen, in 4-8 years we go back to square one!

That is all for now…..

*** For all the reporters who have no clue about how refugee resettlement works in America, these are the nine major federal contractors being paid with taxpayer dollars to place refugees in American towns and cities in every state but Wyoming!

The national media is looking for you! Do you want to be found?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 31, 2017

First, an apology to my faithful readers.  I am overwhelmed with way too much news to report, with requests for information, with requests from media, with requests from some of you about conducting your facebook wars (answered that yesterday and lots of you commented), and so I apologize if I don’t answer all of your e-mails. I simply can’t! (I am trying so hard to balance my life so I don’t burn out!).

It is just me here, me and my computer.  The other side has dozens (hundreds!) of organizations, many being paid by you, the US taxpayer, sending out press releases, holding demonstrations and otherwise clamoring to be heard.

There isn’t one national group that exclusively focuses on the Refugee Admissions Program!

Members of the national media know that Donald Trump, when he signed the EO to stop some refugees and migrants from some parts of the world, was responding to you, the people who elected him.

rasmussenlogo

In fact, Rasmussen reported yesterday that 57% of those surveyed last week favor Trump’s temporary moratorium on refugee resettlement.

So, perhaps in a new found desire to ‘balance’ their reporting, I have had several requests to speak to some national news outlets including the New York Times, Al-Jazeera and the LA Times.  I’ve decided to write a short post (next) with some of the things I would like to say to them.

But…..they are looking for you!

They want to talk to those of you who have been working in ‘pockets of resistance’ all across America where you have been investigating and educating your communities about cultural, economic and security problems with the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program.

They really don’t know people like you!

So, if you want to be called by the national media, send me an e-mail (I promise to look at my g-mail account, left hand side bar, later today and tomorrow).  But, put something in the subject line to catch my eye and send me an e-mail address you are willing to have passed along to reporters who are trying to find you.

Comment worth noting: reader asks should he defend Trump on facebook or stay silent

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 30, 2017

Editor: As longtime readers know, from time to time, I elevate comments I receive to posts because the comment deserves further attention. This is one from yesterday from a regular reader—‘domstudent11’.  I almost answered it last night, but was conflicted about what to say. I am not conflicted this morning after posting my earlier report.

By the way, he is not the first reader over the weekend to bring up the issue of conflicts on facebook.

Here is ‘domstudent11’:

facebook-homepage

I was unfriended today by a fellow church member who didn’t like my post explaining the lucrative refugee resettlement program. I guess liberals don’t like facts. I wonder if all the hostility on FB is because until now, there was no pushback from conservatives. So I am torn. I could keep my mouth shut and ignore all the anti-Trump posts from my so-called friends, or try to enlighten them, which has resulted in me being unfriended and blocked. For some reason I think it is important to challenge folks, and I have been trying to stick to facts only. I also “like” posts that I agree with from Gary Bauer, Jay Sekulow, Breitbart, etc. What do you-all think? Ignore or challenge?

Here are my thoughts in no particular order:

~Most facebook fights are a waste of time (IMHO). You are not going to change ‘liberals’ minds.

~That said, in light of where we are in America, it is time to bring the issue of Islamic immigration and refugee resettlement to a head, so post to facebook articles you agree with and let the chips fall where they may. But don’t waste time with back and forth arguments.

~Who cares if you lose friends who don’t see the fact that we are at a turning point for America, indeed for all of western civilization.

~Unless they are like-minded, maybe keep your family off of your facebook friends list. No sense jeopardizing your next Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner invite.

~Find more like-minded friends on facebook and in person so that you can have some emotional support for a huge war that has barely begun (assuming Trump doesn’t back down!).

~Direct your facebook energy toward your members of Congress and US Senators (the most likely to turn tail and run when things get rough). And, make sure your state and local elected officials get messages from you too.

~Put some of the time you might spend fighting with liberals on facebook toward other actions that might reach open minds—write letters to the editor, organize a citizens’ group (or join one like ACT for America) in your town, go out and demonstrate when the opportunity arises to confront those supporting more Muslim migration to America.  And, my favorite option—use your free speech—write your own blog and build a local/state clientele that will challenge (with facts!) your open borders activists and elected officials.

~And today spend your ‘free’ time supporting Trump and yelling at the Republicans in Washington who are getting cold feet! But, don’t get bogged down in the minutia of what this latest EO says!

Send a message to President Trump by clicking here!  Thank him and ask him to stand firm.

Readers! Do you have suggestions for ‘domstudent11’?  If so let us know!

European nationalists meet: European migration policy a daily disaster

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 21, 2017

Invasion of Europe news…..

Obviously timed to follow the Inauguration of Donald Trump, nationalist leaders from five European countries met in Koblenz, Germany today to declare a new day for Europe.

enf-europe

#WeWillMakeOurCountriesGreatAgain (use the hashtag whenever you can!)

 

Representatives from France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and Austria declared that a “patriotic spring” was on the horizon for 2017.

From AP (emphasis is mine):

KOBLENZ, Germany — French presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen declared Saturday that 2017 will be the “year of the awakening of the people of continental Europe” as she joined fellow nationalist leaders in Germany at the beginning of a year of high-stakes national elections.

The mood was celebratory a day after Donald Trump was sworn in as U.S. president, following a campaign buoyed by anti-establishment and protectionist themes.

“Yesterday, a new America. Today, hello Koblenz, a new Europe!”

Dutch anti-Islam leader Geert Wilders said as he opened his speech at a congress center on the banks of the Rhine river, under heavy security.

“The people of the west are awakening. They are throwing off the yoke of political correctness,” he said. “This year will be the year of the people … the year of liberation, the year of the patriotic spring.”

Wilders’ anti-Islam Party of Freedom could win the largest percentage of votes in the March 15 Dutch parliamentary election, though it is shunned by rivals and highly unlikely to be able to form a coalition. Le Pen is among top contenders in France’s April-May presidential vote. In September, Frauke Petry’s four-year-old Alternative for Germany party hopes to enter the German parliament.

The meeting of the Europe of Nations and Freedom group in the European Parliament also featured Matteo Salvini of Italy’s Northern League and Harald Vilimsky, the general secretary of Austria’s Freedom Party, which last year narrowly failed to win the country’s presidency.

“We are experiencing the end of one world and the birth of another,” Le Pen said. “We are experiencing the return of nation-states.”

The first “real blow to the old order” was last June’s British vote to leave the European Union, she said — followed closely by Trump’s election. The new U.S. president, she said, “will not support a system of oppression” in Europe.

More here.

They must turn the migrant tide back this year, or I can’t see how Europe survives!

Comment worth noting: We aid and abet ISIS when we don’t tell the truth about Islam

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 7, 2016

Editor:  As you know from time to time we post reader comments that we think you might like, but might have missed. This is a comment from ‘7Delta’ in response to our post on how the OSU Somali slasher’s mother is scared (according to her lawyer) by Trump’s tweets.

‘7delta’ (emphasis added is mine):

Oh, for Pete’s sake. The jihadist’s family is traumatized by a tweet and the excuse for Wrong-Way Artan jack-knifing on campus is that he became “radicalized?” The old “the devil made me do it” radicalization defense…meaning, of course, that people who object to stealth jihad and hurt wittle Iswammic feewings are “recruiting” for ISIS. Okay, it’s the right motivational sentiment, but the wrong devil. Of course, according to our Mouths of Sauron, Wrong-Way’s actions can’t have anything to do with Islamic doctrine, now can it?

screenshot-78

CNN News anchor Alisyn Camerota suggested last week that American women wear hijabs in solidarity with Moms like this Somali woman. Needless to say, it inspired a flood of responses, like this one, on twitter. http://www.bizpacreview.com/2016/11/30/cnns-alisyn-camerota-suggests-american-women-wear-hijabs-show-solidarity-muslims-418251

Sorry, that song and dance went out with the minuet. Knowing Islamic doctrine is in style and their own operator’s manuals blow their flimsy fears and excuses out of Wrong Way’s tail pipe. Mom and Dad, wherever he may be, just got a free ticket to paradise, along with 68 additional close relatives. Chances are Mom and her remaining six young’uns (and probably Dad) had a wedding feast (paid for by us) with their closest friends to celebrate. Passed out sweets to their neighbors too (also purchased on our dime.) She’s not afraid of anything other than her attempts to trick us into being compliant with Shariah blasphemy laws won’t work anymore, as are her fellow hizrahites. In that respect, her fears (and theirs) are well founded.

Still, there’s good news! The reported rapidly spreading ailment, Islamophobia, has been cured! It’s a miracle! Amazing… true…but it never even existed. Imagine that! What a relief. We can quit worrying about it, just in time for Christmas.

Nothing Trump, nor any other happy infidel has done, will do, or can do has any effect whatsoever on Islamic doctrine. We are irrelevant to what Islam believes. The Double Duds, Mohammed and Allah, “radicalized” her son, only they called it devout.

Does anybody with a few functioning brain cells really think ISIS or cultural jihadists would actually tell us that criticizing Islam or electing Trump will recruit for the jihadists, so we shouldn’t do it, if it really did? What? Do they have too many soldiers of Allah and need to cut back to slow down establishing their caliphate so nobody gets hurt? Booty just being spread too thin? The sex slave market is saturated? I don’t think so. Wrong-Way was a devout follower of the 2 D’s. Pretty simple and doesn’t even require more than a basic understanding of Islamic doctrine.

The only thing we do that aids and abets ISIS and the Double D’s is to not tell the truth. Islam is what it is.

No sympathy from my keyboard for Mama Wrong Way’s “fears.” I’m sorry her son felt the obligation to try to kill people and to die a martyr, but that’s an Islamic issue. Maybe she should ask her prophet for profit (he got 1/5 of the booty, ya know) and Allah’s Head what to do when their infidel targets can read and won’t cooperate? That is, if she can figure out how to say it in Arabic, since that’s the only language Allah speaks.

I mean, seriously. Whining and name calling is just not working anymore, not even with the help of female news anchors suggesting infidel women should comply with Shariah law and wear hijabs in solidarity with Muslim women when a jihadist decides to get martyred, as if that’ll make everything okay when their men beat them or they’re the victims of an honor killing, which is in accordance with Shariah law too, or when the Filthy Rich Lawless Center puts people telling the truth on their Dollars for Hate List, or when our suspiciously “ignorant” of Islam president keeps telling us jihad isn’t Islamic. What happened to good old fashioned lying working?

Dang those fake news sites that truthfully report on Islamic atrocities!

A curse of fleas upon the Internet for making the Qu’ran, Hadith and Sira available for the infidel’s reading pleasure.

Seriously, these whiny rote replies are severely lacking in creativity and are as old as Mohammed’s first camel. Nobody, except the bobble-headed, bleached blonde news anchors, their suck-up male counterparts and the few parrots still flapping their fake social justice feathers, believes it anymore. The liars issuing talking points to the blondies and bird brains know the truth. Islam is their tool. Islam, naturally, intends to take their heads. Tickets will be available soon, at a venue near you. Popcorn is welcome.

Okay, got that off my chest. I’ll take another dose of Mucinex just to be sure. Later.

Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly calls for one year moratorium on refugee resettlement

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 6, 2016

I happened to catch his talking points memo last night.

bill-oreilly

However, he didn’t have the story exactly accurate on Australia.  He praised that country for its tough stance on illegal migrants as if it’s always been that way. But for those interested in digging in to the facts there, see our category on Australia (184 posts going back 8 years) and see that their hardline stance is relatively recent and that the country foolishly admitted, for years, large numbers of Muslim migrants that are now pretty aggressive.

O’Reilly also mentioned the strange deal that the Obama Administration is advancing where we would take off Australia’s hands hundreds (at least) of Australia’s rejected asylum seekers (our coverage here) presently housed in off-shore detention facilities.

However, here is the part we liked best in O’Reilly’s statement.  Thanks to Media Matters for tracking this type of story more closely than some on our side do.

You can see 3 + minutes of the statement by O’Reilly by clicking here.  (I see they left out the Australia portion.) You may not like some of O’Reilly’s prescriptions for dealing with our illegal aliens living in the US.

Southern Poverty Law Center wants to silence James Simpson now because….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 28, 2016

….the SPLC has got to keep the donations flowing in (they have fat salaries to pay)!

Many of you are familiar with author/investigator James Simpson and may even have read his monograph that followed mine at the Center for Security Policy.

A prolific writer and speaker, Simpson travels to many towns and cities to explain to the public how the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program works.  This week he is scheduled to speak in Michigan, but the Southern Poverty Law Center would be all too happy to shut him down with their usual name-calling strategy—don’t like the message, call it racist, bigoted, Islamophobic and scare the audience away.

Here is Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily telling us what all the fuss is about in Trump country—Michigan!

It doesn’t take much to get one’s self branded a racist in Michigan these days.

Donald Trump pulled off an upset win in the state that has gone Democrat in the previous two presidential elections, but that hasn’t stopped the entrenched establishment from demonizing those who hold Trump-like views on immigration.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is teaming up with local Detroit media to paint a Maryland-based journalist as an anti-Muslim “extremist” and “Islamophobe” simply because he has produced fact-based research on the U.S. government’s refugee resettlement program.

James Simpson has been invited to speak at the annual Business Roundtable Breakfast in Oakland County, one of several counties in Michigan that have been pummeled with refugees from the Middle East over the last eight years of the Obama administration.

Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, who won re-election in a landslide on Nov. 8, has been a vocal critic of the refugee program, threatening to sue the administration for violating the Refugee Act of 1980. Under Obama, the feds have distributed thousands of refugees into Oakland County without advance notice to Patterson and other local government officials. Once the federal month that follows the refugees runs out, Oakland County taxpayers are left holding the bag for the education and welfare of the refugees.

But the SPLC’s attack stance has now frightened away one of the Roundtable event’s main sponsors, the Fifth Third Bank.

SPLC is the same organization that tried to label former GOP presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson an “extremist” only to remove the post from its website and apologize after an intense nationwide backlash in 2015.

[….]

But the newest source of the media-made controversy in Michigan is Simpson, author of the 2015 book “The Red-Green Axis: Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to Erase America.”

Simpson has been invited by Patterson to speak at the annual economic forum on Dec. 1. Simpson is a research fellow at Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. The SPLC was used as the source of the negative stories about Simpson that appeared in the Detroit Free Press and the Detroit Metro Times.

There is a lot of important information in Hohmann’s article, continue reading here.

If you missed it, see SPLC calls yours truly a top anti-Muslim extremist here.

Once again it is about money!

The ‘non-profit’ SPLC rakes in millions every year by scaring people with tactics like these.

If they made reasoned arguments about why we are wrong about the UN/US Refugee Program and why mass immigration is good for America (and American workers!), for instance, they simply couldn’t make enough money to pay the fat salaries  (Form 990 page 8) they pay their executives and staff.

screenshot-73

This is from their 2014 Form 990. Notice the last line in my screenshot. They have 21 employees making over $100,000 a year so they need to haul in a lot of money each year! http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2015/630/598/2015-630598743-0ca6eda4-9.pdf

 

One more thing!

Order your advance copy of Hohmann’s book to be released in January 2017 (see the SPLC rage!):

We should all be Geert Wilders, use your free speech while you have it!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 26, 2016

“Members of the court, you are passing judgment on the future of the Netherlands.”

Geert Wilders

geert-wilders

Wilders before the court!

Every one of you should take a few minutes and read Dutch leader Geert Wilders’ final statement to the court that is seeking to convict him on hate speech charges.  I’ve snipped a bit of it below.

In the US we still have our Constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech because the founders understood that being able to freely speak about vital issues facing the country was the best way to keep chaos and violent conflict from tearing the country apart.

Granted there are far left organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center who are seeking to silence you.  Your response should be to speak up even more forcefully. (See SPLC will have a DC press conference this week, they use their free speech!)

Every one of you who is concerned about immigration/refugees where you live and is working to expose problems must speak up! You MUST write a website, a blog, letters to the editor, a facebook page, or hold public meetings to get the information out while you can! LOL! You need to counter the fake news from the likes of CNN!  And, if thousands of you are publishing your research and opinions, they can’t stop us all!

Sorry for the harangue!

Here is Wilders (imagine living like he does, under 24 hour guard, because people want to kill you for what you say!):

When I decided to address you here today, by making a final statement in this trial against freedom of speech, many people reacted by telling me it is useless. That you, the court, have already written the sentencing verdict a while ago. That everything indicates that you have already convicted me. And perhaps that is true. Nevertheless, here I am. Because I never give up. And I have a message for you and the Netherlands.

For centuries, the Netherlands are a symbol of freedom.

When one says Netherlands, one says freedom. And that is also true, perhaps especially, for those who have a different opinion than the establishment, the opposition. And our most important freedom is freedom of speech.

[….]

So, do not forget that, when you judge me, you are not just passing judgment on a single man, but on millions of men and women in the Netherlands. You are judging millions of people. People who agree with me. People who will not understand a conviction. People who want their country back, who are sick and tired of not being listened to, who cherish freedom of expression.

Members of the court, you are passing judgment on the future of the Netherlands. And I tell you: if you convict me, you will convict half of the Netherlands. And many Dutch will lose their last bit of trust in the rule of law.

More here.
