Montana response to refugee plan includes dire warning

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 7, 2015

Last week we told you that a group in Montana was proposing that the state begin to resettle refugees in significant numbers.  The only state that has no refugee program at all is Wyoming, but over the years Montana has resettled a handful (LOL! sort of like refugee advocate Joe Biden’s Delaware).  However, that could all change as writer Stephen Maly suggested in an opinion piece in Helena’s Independent Record.

Now comes a response by Montana resident Paul Nachman*** which I’m posting here for several reasons.  First, his excellent piece could be a model for others working in ‘pockets of resistance’ and it’s a reminder to use the local media as much as possible (not everyone is on the internet!).  Secondly, he makes some very good points in a thoughtful way, and last but not least, he raises a specter of something more and more experts are beginning to notice—in the coming years we will have a glut of low-skilled workers and no jobs.  So what then will happen to all of the third world immigrants we have imported ostensibly to do the jobs Americans won’t do?  Nachman asks that question.

After you read the whole essay, you might want to send a letter or comment to the paper yourself.  Help Montanans decide if they should “change” the character of their state by “welcoming” refugees from places like Somalia, Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

From the Independent Record:

Stephen Maly’s op-ed “Exploring the possibility of welcoming Syrian refugees to Helena” (June 25) is heartfelt. But it’s also a nonstarter because most of what Mr. Maly wrote has negligible overlap with the current realities of refugee resettlement in the United States.

These realities usually startle people new to the subject. One pictures carefully selected refugees shepherded to new lives in America by doting non-governmental organizations rooted in religion (e.g. Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service) or civic concern (e.g. International Rescue Committee). Surely such groups assist their charges in finding housing and employment and in assimilating to American life, while also providing financial support until “their” refugees attain self-sufficiency? And surely they fund this support and the salaries of their professional resettlement workers using contributions gathered by “passing the plate” in their churches or by attracting private philanthropy?

Well, no. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees does the selecting, pressing their selectees on national bureaucracies such as the U.S. State Department. In turn, the State Department — working with LIRS, IRC and seven other NGOs — identifies American cities and towns for concentrated resettlement of the refugees, typically paying minimal attention to the capabilities and resources of these receiving communities. Indeed, the communities often learn about their new arrivals after the fact.

The sponsoring NGOs’ refugee work is funded almost entirely by the federal taxpayer, not from resources they’re raised themselves, so they’re best viewed as federal contractors. And the contractors’ obligations to any particular refugees end after a few months, no matter how inadequately their charges have assimilated during that brief span.

Continue reading here.

Now this is the part that I found alarming because I have been hearing this warning from several sources lately.

Mr. Maly’s worry about systemic worker shortages is probably misplaced, anyway. The cover story in the July/August Atlantic is “A World Without Work.” Author Derek Thompson argues that galloping computer-driven automation is en route to destroying, on net, tens of millions of American jobs. If so, the issue for our society will be the distribution of sustenance to those forced out of the workforce, without engendering the resentment of those still working. We certainly won’t need to import workers from abroad.

There is more, please continue here.

***Paul Nachman (PNBL48@hotmail.com) is a retired physicist and a founding member of Montanans for Immigration Law Enforcement (www.montanamile.org). He also volunteers in a research group at MSU in Bozeman.

Please send a comment to the Independent Record especially if you have information about how the refugee program is problematic where you live.

Let’s hope Trump doesn’t back down on immigrant crime statement

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2015

Update July 3:  If the Republican Party condemns Trump (here) over his remarks, the GOP is toast!

I’m traveling today with no time to post much, but wanted you to be sure to see this piece by Ann Coulter.  And, I see that it’s not just the media going after Trump.  It seems he has released all the Furies of Hell with his comment about immigrant criminals.

All the Furies of Hell have been released on Trump! http://youall.com/HELL/paganhell.htm

In her bookAdios America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hell Hole.’  Coulter very extensively lays out what she says in her latest column.

I have (over the last 8 years) noticed that very rarely does any media report tell the reader the immigration status of a criminal and that is especially so if the immigrant is a refugee.

Some reader recently asked me where to find crime stats for refugees and I wished him good luck and asked if he ever found any, send them my way!

Ann Coulter:

When Donald Trump said something not exuberantly enthusiastic about Mexican immigrants, the media’s response was to boycott him. One thing they didn’t do was produce any facts showing he was wrong.

Trump said: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

The first thing a news fact-checker would have noticed is: THE GOVERNMENT WON’T TELL US HOW MANY IMMIGRANTS ARE COMMITTING CRIMES IN AMERICA.

Wouldn’t that make any person of average intelligence suspicious? Not our media. They’re in on the cover-up.

There is a lot more, read it all here.

Hang in there Mr. Trump, we are counting on you to not buckle to the pressure!  If you waiver and waffle, you have no chance of winning the Presidency!

More from Twin Falls, ID: Newspaper editor calls me a thief!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 22, 2015

Matt Christensen

Matt Christensen, who less than two years ago was the NEW editor of a Montana paper, is now back in Idaho, and has editorialized claiming we posted too much from the Twin Falls Times-News.

Imagine what a nerve we must have struck to cause a newspaper editor in Idaho to spend money and time attempting to silence a citizen blogger nearly 2,000 miles away.

Almost every day for eight years I have researched the Refugee Resettlement Program of the UN/US State Department as a completely charitable endeavor so that just regular folks in America might know what is being done to their communities.

We have been extremely careful to give attribution and urge readers to see the original article when we snip news articles on which we comment.

And now, over 6,600 posts later, along comes an editor of a small city paper who calls me a “thief” in print as if it wasn’t enough to hire an attorney to send me a letter.

Imagine spending even a minute trying to silence a blogger!

What the heck are they hiding in Magic Valley, Idaho?  Maybe the newspaper there should do as much research as I have on how the secretive Refugee Admissions program benefits a few big businesses and then tell Idahoans the truth because they, taxpaying citizens, have every right to know who is changing their communities and why!

Click here to read all about me in: Stealing the News.

See all of our recent coverage of Twin Falls, here, here, here, here and here.

As my friend Richard always says, “When you are taking flak, you know you are over the target!”

Photo and story about Christensen is here.

RRW Weekly Roundup for week ending June 20, 2015

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 22, 2015

I should have done this over the weekend, but simply no time.

Idaho controversy was the star of the week!

And, I definitely didn’t want to miss this one because the controversy we have been reporting on from Twin Falls, Idaho has brought new readers in by the droves!  Much to my surprise, the readers most interested in the Idaho refugee controversy were from Germany!

If you missed it, one interesting turn of events from Twin Falls is that a lawyer for the local newspaper told me I must remove the text I had snipped (here and here).  You know this can’t be for commercial and economic reasons because I bet we sent them a boatload of readers (to see their advertisements).

In case you hadn’t noticed, we don’t make a dime from our work of writing and reporting on refugee controversies here and around the world, so they can hardly say they were economically hurt. Copyright law does allow some use of others’ work for the purpose of commentary, and that is what bloggers do!

CLEARLY we hit a nerve!  Clearly, the newspaper in Twin Falls is biased in favor of changing Idaho by adding diversity, why?  Wouldn’t you think a newspaper would be happy with controversy and public discussion, doesn’t that sell papers?  Maybe they want to silence regular American citizens like me!

Or, could there be some other reason they have an interest in tamping down the controversy about more refugees coming to “Magic Valley” Idaho?  Who is the paper really working for?  We will be trying to find out!

Don’t miss my latest on Idaho here (what citizens need to do!)  and here (meatpacker coming to Boise explains need for cheap, captive! immigrant labor).  Follow the money!

Top Posts!

So, without further ado here are our Top Three posts from last week (Top daily posts are in the right hand side bar).  The Idaho news was the top story by a mile!

1.  Idaho: more controversy surrounding refugee resettlement in Magic Valley

2.  Sudanese refugee shot and killed in Louisville; why are we colonizing America with people like this?

3.  Did your city welcome Syrians in the first 6 months of 2015?

Top Countries!

Here are our Top Ten countries from which readers arrived at RRW last week.  Surprise! for the first time ever, Germany beats out Canada, Australia and the UK for the number one spot!

 

Germany

UK

Canada

Australia

Austria

Switzerland

Netherlands

France

New Zealand

Norway

For new readers!

Since we get new readers every day, here is my usual spiel with two points I need to continue to make:

First, we do screen our comments (sometimes I don’t get to them right away!) and I don’t post any that threaten any kind of violence or ones filled with foul language.  An occasional expletive might slip in if the comment is otherwise a good one.  You are always free to disagree with our point of view if you follow those two simple rules.

And the other thing I want to mention is about e-mails that come to you every time we post.  They come directly from wordpress to subscribers.  We don’t send out e-mails.  So, if we are posting too much for your e-mail inbox, then just unsubscribe and visit RRW when you have the time I understand completely about too many e-mails!  You might want to simply follow us on twitter or on facebook (below).

This is where you can find information (in addition to our fact sheet). We have over 6,500 posts.

*  See our categories (left hand sidebar)

*  See the tag clouds (right hand sidebar)

*  Also, we have a great search function and since neither the categories nor the tags go all the way back to our first posts more than seven years ago, use the search window with a few key words.  You might want to first try your city, state, or country to see what we have reported from there over the years.

Readers from Europe should search for key words ‘Invasion of Europe’ for all of our many posts on the migration crisis on the Continent.

By the way, our category entitled ‘where to find information’ is filled with reports and documents, but with 354 posts archived there, it is pretty unwieldy now.

Past weekly roundups can be found in our category entitled ‘blogging.’

If you wish to be notified when we post, consider subscribing or follow us on twitter (@refugeewatcher) or facebook (RefugeeInfoResource).  ‘Like us’ on facebook! (We are no longer posting every story we write at RRW to facebook so as not to overload your facebook feed either.)  We also have some content on facebook that isn’t posted here first, so like us and follow us (I do have a volunteer helper at facebook—Kelly Monroe Kullberg).

And apologies to all who e-mail and comment, sorry if I don’t respond much, there are just not enough hours in my day!

Thanks to all of you for following RRW.  The subject is on fire (maybe you have noticed)!

P.S.  I have added two photos of myself to our About page, if you need one for any reason.

Comments worth noting: Trolls just want to troll!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 18, 2015

Some of our regular readers might have noticed that we have a troll (‘314maker’) who has arrived in the last few days to criticize RRW and you.

Fat-Green-TrollI’m really o.k. with criticism and with trolls, but just wish one of them would one day take me up on my offer to write a guest column with reasoned arguments about why he/she believes that America should invite the world to come live here.

Here is ‘314maker’ trying to make the point that we don’t take all the refugees the UN has selected for us.

‘314maker':

Seems like my comment was deleted. Again, just because a refugee is referred to the U.S. Program, does not mean the case will be accepted, nor does it mean the case will be given refugee status by USG officials.

Here is what I said in response to that comment from ‘314 maker’ yesterday (this is at our post on Idaho).

Ann:

As long as you don’t swear or threaten anyone personally I don’t delete comments. But, also, remember I don’t sit at the computer all day waiting for comments to roll in. This is a reminder to everyone, I post them when I have time in the middle of my otherwise busy life.

314maker, we have many times over the years reported that the UN specifically says it has chosen refugees for us. The UNHCR tells us they do!

But, since you are here, I would like to offer you the opportunity to write a guest post for us and explain why America has to take the large number of refugees we now take, and we want a logical explanation, with no mention of “nation of immigrants” and no appeal to religion, no name-calling, just simply explain why it is in our interest to admit large numbers of impoverished people to our cities and towns, and why it isn’t enough to take care of American poor first.

And, most of all we would really like to know if even you have a limit. Is there some number that is simply too many? Or, would you just erase all of our borders and invite anyone from anywhere to live here?

This is a serious offer of an opportunity to reach a lot of people with a logical reason why you are in support of mass immigration.

He/she has refused my offer.  And, by the way, we are under no obligation to be fair and balanced.  The Hard Left/Open Borders crowd is never fair and balanced!

‘314maker':

Ann – I am not interested in writing a guest post and kindly request that you do not create one based on my comments. Your blog is highly editorialized (your prerogative) and routinely twists facts to support a certain mindset – a mindset which I want no part of, even in an attempt to correct. I believe in the process of refugee resettlement and I do not feel the need to justify this belief to you or your readers. I will, however, continue to read your blog and provide comments as I find your take on things quite entertaining.

He/she wants to keep commenting, but I suggested perhaps he/she could write his/her own blog and call it Refugee Resettlement Watch Watch! (but that would mean having to do some work!).

Ann:

I thought so…easy to comment critically, less easy to logically explain your point of view. Hey, here is an idea, rather than me giving you a platform to attack on a daily basis, why don’t you do the hard work of writing a blog—Call it Refugee Resettlement Watch Watch and I will prominently link it and promote it!

Editor’s note:  For our many new readers, ‘Comments worth noting’ is a category in which we archive interesting comments! It is also where we archive guest columns like the one we hoped ‘314maker’ would write.

Idaho: More controversy surrounding refugee resettlement in Magic Valley

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 17, 2015

Update June 22nd:  This post was our top post (by a mile!) last week, go figure!

Update June 20th:  I have no idea why this post is going viral today, but because of that, I want all of you to see my extensive update on Twin Falls here with a list of things citizens concerned with the resettlement of third worlders to Magic Valley must do!

This is an update of several posts we have written lately about complaints against the College of Southern Idaho for hosting a refugee resettlement office.  See our earlier coverage from Twin Falls, Idaho (click here for a complete archive).

Twin Falls is a federally-designated preferred resettlement site for UN-selected refugees!

From MagicValley.com  (hat tip: Joanne).

One speaker, Rick Martin, is quoted as saying the resettlement office is “disastrous” to the college’s reputation.

Editor: The article has been removed at the request of an attorney for the newspaper which is clearly unhappy with any of their articles being partially posted here at RRW.

This is just further demonstration of how local newspapers are attempting to silence critics presumably because they are in the pockets of the federal government, the refugee contractors and the big businesses that need this cheap immigrant labor. Who is driving the cheap labor needs in Twin Falls?

House Homeland Security chairman IS WORRIED ABOUT SYRIAN REFUGEES!

Obviously the college officials do not know about the efforts by House Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul to stop the resettlement of Syrians to places like Idaho because the FBI has said the Syrians cannot be screened. See hearings this coming week in Washington!

Harry Turner, an attorney, said he received a call from a refugee couple who’s Jewish and have been harassed in Twin Falls by Muslims.  [And, just wait until the resettled Sunni Muslims and Shiite Muslims resume their centuries-old conflicts right there in Idaho!—ed]

Read it all, here.

Local concerned citizens should also be demanding information from local and state government about the cost to Twin Falls and to the state of Idaho for the care of the impoverished refugees.  Idaho is a Wilson-Fish state and citizens there need to learn more about what that means.  (Hint! It isn’t good!)

‘Welcoming America’ comes to Long Island, is it in your town yet? Find out!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 8, 2015

It’s been almost exactly two years since I first heard that the Office of Refugee Resettlement in the Dept. of Health and Human Services had hired a community organizing contractor (with your money!) to tamp down any “pockets of resistance” to the seeding of immigrants (legal and illegal) in your towns and cities.

Read my original post here.

The ORR spokesman at the meeting in Lancaster, PA actually used the phrase “pockets of resistance” to describe any of you questioning what Washington was doing to your community.

Wanted! Bloggers to track and report on what David Lubell is doing! He is the founder and head honcho at Welcoming America. Obama honored him in Nashville last year. His community organizing group was started with seed money from George Soros and he is working to change your communities across America forever. http://www.tennessean.com/story/money/2014/12/09/obama-honors-immigrant-rights-leader-david-lubell/20156983/

Since then of course we have learned that the whole seeding idea is part of Obama’s New Americans initiative.

I’m bringing you this post at a website called the Independent Sentinel for a very specific reason (in addition to educating you about how ‘Welcoming America’ is working to control anyone in Nassau and Suffolk counties that might object to being replaced by 526,000 immigrants with more on the way).

First, please read the post by Sara Noble, here.

And this is why I am posting it:  Sara Noble is doing something!

She is investigating, writing reports and publishing them on national issues and on her local community.

Everywhere I go, people ask, what can I do?  What can I do? This is what you can do—become an investigative blogger!  Or, a regular letter-to-the-editor writer, a facebook page editor (not just yak about personal stuff), tweet on a specific subject.

We must do the work old fashioned investigative reporters used to do.  And, we have to get our research out beyond our own circle of like-minded people.

Here is what Sara says:

Independent blogs like this one provide an opportunity for common folk to battle the corrupted mainstream media in a search for truth. We are searching, always searching…

I don’t know how many times I have to say it, but it does you no good to be a great reader of the news, or even a researcher and then send me e-mails (filled with links) that fill up my in-boxes!   Remember it is just me here!

The other day I suggested someone start an investigative blog on food stamp fraud at immigrant-run convenience stores—someone please tell me you will soon launch that!

We can help save America, but we have to get our facts and get them out far and wide because the mainstream media (even Fox News) is controlled by the establishment.

Welcoming America Watch!

Now that would be a great title of a blog or website!  One of you looking for something to do from home could easily do this….

Track Welcoming America around America!

Report what they are up to!

Weekly RRW roundup for week ending June 6th, 2015

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 6, 2015

Yes!  This month we celebrate our 8th anniversary!

Refugee Resettlement Watch was created at the end of June 2007 and we had 7 visitors that month and (LOL!) that was us figuring out how to post. The following month, July 2007, we published 47 posts and had an average of 37 readers a day.  We have now posted 6,628 posts and in late May we had our biggest day ever with over 15,000 visitors helping to make May 2015 our top month ever!

I know we aren’t like some of the really big blogs, but considering our narrow focus, we think that is great!

Harangue of the week! (of the year!).  Use your free speech while you have it!

Everywhere I go, people ask what can they do and I say the number one thing you must do is do your research, get your facts and WRITE  a blog or website so the good information you are finding gets out to people in your state—people you have never met, people not in your circle!  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we had 50 or 100 blogs focused on how immigration of all kinds is destroying America!

It might be overused, but it is true!   Information is power!  It does no good to unearth documents and reports and news generally on immigration issues where you live if the information never goes beyond your little group and is eventually lost!

And, don’t worry about how well-done your investigative blog is, RRW is amateurish-looking and pretty messy now (my techie son tells me so!), but it still gets the job done!

And, would someone please write an investigative blog on Food Stamp Fraud at immigrant-run stores!  You would have a winner right out of the chute!

After you begin doing your research and getting the facts out far and wide, we need to talk about ‘community organizing’ — that will be my harangue for next week!

One more thing!  If you didn’t see our first Youtube video (here), it is now at almost 600,000 views and we have a new one on Syrian refugees (here), please help get it outside of our circle!

Here are the Top Three Posts of the Week (top daily posts are in the right hand sidebar):

1)  Minnesota Somalis: we would rather be in Somalia

2)  Alabama: Massive food stamp fraud bust; some of your money went to Yemen

3)  Stick’in it to Rep. Trey Gowdy, US State Department contractor World Relief brings first refugees to Spartanburg

Here are the Top Ten Countries in descending order from which visitors arrived this week (excluding the US):

UK

Canada

Australia

Sweden

Germany

Netherlands

Norway

India

Malaysia

South Africa

For new readers!

Since we get new readers every day, here is my usual spiel with two points I need to continue to make:

First, we do screen our comments (sometimes I don’t get to them right away!) and I don’t post any that threaten any kind of violence or ones filled with foul language.  An occasional expletive might slip in if the comment is otherwise a good one.  You are always free to disagree with our point of view if you follow those two simple rules.

Reader says Fox and Friends not a friend of free speech

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 1, 2015

Editor: From time to time we publish good comments or opinion pieces from our readers.  Previous commentary is archived in our category entitled ‘Comments worth noting/guest posts,’ click here to read previous reader opinions.  This opinion from reader ‘Julia’ is a view I share.  When Fox&Friends and other Fox News talking-heads blamed Pamela Geller for what happened in Garland, Texas, we knew the writing was on the wall and that we have no defense for free speech in the dinosaur media.  Fox (excepting perhaps Judge Jeanine!) has joined that despicable club.

From Julia:

Saturday, May 30, 2015, Fox&Friends joined an alarming trend when one of its hosts labeled former Marine Jon Ritzheimer and his fellow bikers who held a “Draw Muhammad” contest as “anti-Islamist activists.”

Is Judge Jeanine the only one left at Fox News who ‘gets it’ about free speech and Islam!

Perhaps Fox&Friends should have read the stories on “The Gateway Pundit” detailing how Islamists have made threats of violence – including murder – to attendees of the contest, published the home address of Mr. Ritzheimer, and caused Mr. Ritzheimer’s family to fear for their lives and go in hiding.

There has been a coordinated effort to characterize citizens who are concerned about the growing threats of terrorism in the U.S. as “anti-Islamic.” There are legitimate concerns about the radicalization of Muslims in America and F&F, by joining the effort to smear these individuals, is failing Fox’s “fair and balanced” approach to reporting.

What’s more is that F&F is employing the tactics of the left that one of its own contributors, Kirsten Powers, denounced in her new book, “The Silencing: How the Left is Killing Free Speech.”

Ms. Powers appeared on “Justice With Judge Jeanine” *** on Saturday, May 30, 2015, and was questioned by Judge Pirro on whether there is currently an attack on the First Amendment. Ms. Powers responded by warning that progressive scholars “have been taught that the First Amendment is not a bulwark against the government, but is an impediment to progressive policy;” that now there are “major legal scholars coming out and suggesting that maybe we need to to have hate speech laws;” . . . “and it’s terrifying.”

During this interview, Judge Pirro touched upon the movement to ridicule and ultimately marginalize those concerned about radical Islam when she suggested that “we’ve gotten to a point where even the word [Islam] is almost frowned upon.”

Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily recently reported on the plans of refugee resettlement contractors to quash the efforts of persons and groups opposing the resettlement of refugees in their communities. Part of these contractors’ plans include coordinating their offense with the Center for New Community and the Southern Poverty Law Center – groups known for ridiculing their opponents and associating them with hate speech.

Much has been written about an alliance between Islam and the left – be it Marxism, communism, etc. This targeting of persons and groups concerned about the spread of radical Islam in the United States suggests the reality of such alliance. That is, Islam is being used as a tool of the left to limit free speech and perhaps ultimately eliminate the First Amendment protections of speech in the U.S. Constitution.

This is why F&F’s joining in the chorus of the left’s demonization of Mr. Ritzheimer is so problematic. Inasmuch as Mr. Ritzheimer titled the protest the Freedom of Speech Rally Round II, Mr. Ritzheimer and the other contest attendees intended to act as “free speech proponents.”

F&F dropped the ball. They owe Mr. Ritzheimer an apology.

In addition, perhaps F&F can demonstrate its support of free speech by investigating and reporting on law schools that teach “that the First Amendment is not a bulwark against the government, but is an impediment to progressive policy.”

We won’t be holding our breath waiting for Fox&Friends to utter an apology!  Why? Can you hear that sound (after the ad)?

*** Watch the Judge Jeanine interview with liberal Kirsten Powers about how the Left is killing free speech, here, beginning at the 1:57 mark.

Muslim immigration to America must be 2016 Presidential campaign issue!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 8, 2015

Update: FBI: Thousands of ISIS followers in US, here.  Hat tip: Diane

Breitbart News, which has been doing a lot of good work on the issue of immigration generally, has posted a review of how much Muslim LEGAL immigration of one sort or another is occurring in the US.  The news hook is that Dutch Parliamentarian Geert Wilders, one of the world’s top targets for assassination by the Islamists, was in Garland, Texas for the ‘draw Mohammad’ competition.  And, he has called for a halt to Muslim immigration to the Netherlands.

wilders-markedHere are just a few nuggets that I thought were the most interesting.   There is some blah-blah-blah by politicians saying the problem is lack of “assimilation” which just shows how deep their heads are in the sand.  The word “assimilation” has been banned from our vocabulary going back to the Bush years!

From Alex Swoyer at Breitbart:

The Muslim immigration warnings offered by Dutch politician Geert Wilders—who was in the facility in Garland, Texas, that was attacked by terrorists last weekend—seem to be coming true.

[….]

Immigrants from the Middle East are currently the fastest growing immigration demographic coming into the U.S., a recent report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. America in just three years imported more immigrants from the Middle East than from Mexico and Central America combined.

[….]

In fact, the United Nations is currently planning to settle roughly one million refugees – mostly Muslims – in western countries, Fox News reports.

Census data reveals roughly 100,000 Muslim immigrants are admitted to the United States each year. Immigrants who enter the U.S. legally are entitled to welfare, U.S. jobs and to vote.  [Refugees get everything, but some other classes of legal immigration do not, and that is why everyone wants to be a refugee.—ed]

The Washington Post reported that immigration from Africa is a contributing factor to the increased Muslim immigrant population: “The number of African-born residents in the United States has doubled every decade since the 1970s, with the greater Washington region remaining among the most popular areas for them to live, the U.S. Census Bureau reported Wednesday.”

In addition to the immigration from the African Continent, the nation’s student visas program also contributes to the growing number of Islamic immigrants. “Nearly 81,000 subjects of the Saudi kingdom are studying in the U.S. this school year, up from about 5,000 in 2000-01,” the Wall Street Journal reported.

Every time you meet a Presidential candidate over the next year ask them how they feel about Muslim immigration and the Refugee Admissions Program.  I’ll bet they won’t have a clue about what you are talking about, so educate them!

It is my opinion that there is no greater issue for America’s survival going forward than how we handle immigration, and especially immigration from the Muslim world.
