Idaho: Why might Senator Crapo have sounded so squishy at recent town hall meetings?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2015

We told you here the other day that Idaho Senator Mike Crapo was confronted at several August recess town hall meetings with a barrage of questions relating to the resettlement of third world refugees to Idaho.

We have no idea what sort of Senator Republican Mike Crapo has been for Idaho, or whether he would listen to constituents, but his cagey answers on refugee resettlement in Idaho suggest he might have more important factors influencing him than some very vocal voters.

He struck me as pretty squishy in his responses.

One of the primary things citizens in refugee resettlement target zones need to look into is how much (especially Republican) elected officials are getting from big business (or Chamber of Commerce) donors who have an interest in the importation of cheap labor.

Seems the folks in Idaho did a little digging on Crapo.

Remember we told you that a big meat packing plant is planned for a small town near Boise, here.  

Well, what do you know! it seems that one of Senator Crapo’s largest donors in recent years is one of the ‘agribusiness’ companies involved!

We have been chronicling for years the role BIG MEAT is playing in changing (colonizing) small town America—from Nebraska, to Kansas, to Iowa, to Colorado just to name a few states getting slammed.  LOL! from a meatpacker’s point of view, this is a great business model. They pay cheap wages for what amounts to slave labor and you, the taxpayer, subsidize the immigrant family with welfare payments (for food, housing, schooling and healthcare).

First, I know it is long, but I want you to see a January press release from the J.R. Simplot Company.  (Hat tip: a concerned citizen of Idaho)

J.R. Simplot Company and Caviness Beef Packers to Build New Idaho Beef Processing Plant

Published on January 07 2015

Amarillo,* Texas-based Caviness Beef Packers has formed a joint-venture with the J.R. Simplot Company to build a new Idaho beef processing plant near Kuna, Idaho.

Pending approval of permits from all necessary regulatory agencies, construction of the nearly 300,000 square foot plant would begin in spring 2015 with an expected fall 2016 opening.

The new joint-venture will operate under the name, CS Beef Packers, LLC. The joint venture is expected to invest $100 million to complete construction of the plant.

The plant is expected to process a maximum of 1,700 head per day, and could create up to 600 new jobs.**

The primary purpose of the plant will be to harvest cull cows and bulls from Northwest dairy farms and cattle ranches throughout the Intermountain West. The plant will also include hide and rendering processing and have the ability to process niche-fed beef programs.

Scott Simplot, J.R. Simplot Company chairman, said the new plant will be the first significant processing operation in the region, reducing the need for dairy farmers and ranchers to ship cattle out of the area for processing.

It’s estimated that there are more than 600,000 dairy cows and more than 600,000 beef cows in the region.

“This effort complements the area’s dairy industry including milk, cheese and yogurt processors,***” Simplot said. “Our company has farmed and ranched in the area for nearly a century and we’re excited to be a part of this joint-venture that will further guarantee the long-term success of the region’s dairy and beef industries.”

Caviness CEO Terry Caviness said Simplot and Caviness are both family-owned companies that complement each other. “Together we will bring significant strengths and expertise to this project,” Caviness said. “We look forward to being a valued partner to area ranchers and dairymen as we expand our footprint in the United States with another world-class beef packing facility.”

Demand for beef is at an all-time high. The new plant will take advantage of advances in food safety and process technologies to create a processing facility that incorporates the best available technologies to effectively process beef safely and humanely. The final product will be prepackaged boxed beef that will primarily be marketed toward food-service suppliers and retail outlets.

“We are excited to bring a new advanced plant to the area. This plant is ideally suited to meet the increasing demand for processing from the dairy and beef cow industry,” said Tom Basabe, president of Simplot Land and Livestock. “Caviness Beef has a long-history in beef processing. Caviness is the perfect partner to join Simplot in this joint venture.”

About Simplot

The J.R. Simplot Company, a privately held agribusiness firm headquartered in Boise, Idaho, has an integrated portfolio that includes phosphate mining, fertilizer manufacturing, farming, ranching and cattle production, food processing, food brands, and other enterprises related to agriculture.

*Amarillo!  We have written about Amarillo for years, the city is completely swamped with refugees (to work at meatpacking plants there) and the mayor has been begging for relief!  See how messed up Amarillo is with refugees by clicking here.

** 600 jobs for whom?

***yogurt processors!  Are we talking about the huge Chobani (Turkish CEO) plant that recently opened near Twin Falls that is likely also using cheap refugee laborers?

Follow the money!

So this is the clincher!

The number two contributor (of the top five) to Senator Mike Crapo’s campaign committee from 2009-2014 is, guess who:  JR Simplot Co.

See here at Open Secrets.

Top 5 Contributors, 2009 – 2014, Campaign Cmte

Contributor Total Indivs PACs
Amgen Inc $26,600 $16,600 $10,000

Murray Energy $20,006 $15,006 $5,000
Common Values PAC $20,000 $0 $20,000

 

Is that why Crapo was so cagey and reportedly indicated support for the refugee resettlement program for Idaho.

Crapo told the Times-News in July that he understands the need for a refugee program.

Whose need?

Now look at this!

The Idaho POR (Pocket of Resistance) is doing great work!  Here is some serious digging reported by Vicky Davis at The Voice of Idaho. This is really really good stuff!

Frank Sharry of ‘America’s Voice’ blasts Trump, but where is the attack on Bernie?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 5, 2015

Know the opposition!

FrankSharry

Frank Sharry. Learn more about him here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Sharry

America’s Voice is one more of those well-funded No Borders organizations that promotes “comprehensive immigration reform.”

They loved the bill the Gang of Eight (supported by Graham, McCain and Rubio) got through the Senate two years ago, a bill which would have expanded the refugee program and given more money to the nine federal contractors to do the work of getting the newly amnestied their “services” (aka welfare).  Incidentally the contractors lobbied for the Gang of Eight bill and probably used your tax dollars to do it!

Here Frank Sharry’s organization blasts Trump in an e-mail to their supporters and tells them they want a “comprehensive” bill just like last time.  (hat tip: Jim)  By the way, they want a “comprehensive” bill so as to hide all the giveaway goodies in over a thousand pages of unreadable gobbledegook!

America’s Voice:

Have you heard about Donald Trump’s latest attack on immigrant families?

Last week, during an interview with CNN, Donald Trump stated that his plan for the 11 million undocumented immigrants would be to “find them, and get them out.” When pressed on this point, Trump just reiterated that he would get immigrants “out” of the United States.

This is just the latest attack on our communities from Donald Trump and his supporters. Meanwhile, anti-immigrant extremists in Congress are looking to capitalize on the momentum generated by Donald Trump by introducing enforcement-only legislation that scapegoats immigrant communities.

Click here (http://act.americasvoice.org/page/s/DumpTrump) and tell our allies in Congress to stand against Donald Trump and anti-immigrant extremists.

You and I are familiar with the grotesque comments that Donald Trump made about immigrants living in the United States. As we continue to approach the first Republican Presidential debate, there are no indications that Donald Trump will tone down his anti-immigrant rhetoric.

If Republicans want to get serious about reforming our broken immigration system, they need to publicly denounce Trump’s hateful comments towards immigrants, and propose solutions to achieve bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform — just like the bill passed by Senate Republicans and Democrats back in 2013.

Congress should be seeking to enact comprehensive immigration reform, not considering policies that further increase deportation.

It is time for our allies in Congress to stand against Donald Trump and his enforcement-only inspired policies. Now is not the time to give Donald Trump and his supporters in Congress a free pass to attack immigrant communities.

We need our allies in Congress to stand against anti-immigrant legislation! Click here to ask they oppose all Trump-style, enforcement-only policies.

Thank you for your support,
Gabe Ortiz

But what about Bernie?

Did you see what Bernie Sanders said recently about open borders—-it would make America poorer to flood the country with low-skilled/low-wage labor!

This is Byron York writing at the Washington Examiner a few days ago (if you missed it!).

As a socialist moving up in the Democratic presidential polls, Bernie Sanders raises the expectations of many on the Left. Some assume Sanders believes what they believe and are disappointed if they discover he does not. In a newly-published interview, Vox founder Ezra Klein, an advocate of an open-borders immigration policy, asked a question virtually inviting Sanders to agree with Klein about allowing any and all would-be immigrants to come to the United States. Sanders most emphatically did not go along:

Klein: You said being a democratic socialist means a more international view. I think if you take global poverty that seriously, it leads you to conclusions that in the US are considered out of political bounds. Things like sharply raising the level of immigration we permit, even up to a level of open borders. About sharply increasing …

Sanders: Open borders? No, that’s a Koch brothers proposal.

Klein: Really?

Sanders: Of course. That’s a right-wing proposal, which says essentially there is no United States …

Klein: But … it would make a lot of global poor richer, wouldn’t it?

Sanders: It would make everybody in America poorer — you’re doing away with the concept of a nation state, and I don’t think there’s any country in the world that believes in that.

[….]

What right-wing people in this country would love is an open-border policy. Bring in all kinds of people, work for $2 or $3 an hour, that would be great for them.

Right on Bernie!  Cheap immigrant labor—just what we have been saying all along!   And, what is so maddening to me is that the Catholics, Lutherans and Evangelicals are all-in to help bring in cheap labor to compete with low income and minority Americans!

We will be waiting to see if America’s Voice blasts Bernie (publicly).

Is Wyoming Republican Senator Barrasso willing to colonize Wyoming with migrant workers? Sure sounds like it

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 1, 2015

For new readers we have a very large archive of posts on how Wyoming Governor Matt Mead wants to open a refugee program in the only state in the nation with no formal resettlement program.  We wondered where the state’s Republican Senators are on the issue of immigration and we get a hint for one of them in a lengthy Breitbart story (hat tip: Jim) entitled, No Congressional GOP Leaders Will Support Reducing Immigration.’

Senator Barrasso

Sen. Barrasso: “We need additional labor.” Does he mean additional cheap labor for the Chamber of Commerce and business pals?

Breitbart reporter, Julia Hahn, who has been doing a lot of great work on legal immigration issues, including refugee resettlement, tells us this about Wyoming Senator John Barrasso:

In the Senate, for instance, while Senate Republican leaders gently and quietly opposed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 80%’s (R-FL) unpopular immigration bill once it was assured of Senate passage, they grounded their statements of opposition in vague criticisms of border security. [They are such chickens, it makes me want to scream—ed] Public comments suggest they were supportive of Sen. Rubio’s effort to drastically expand the total level of immigration into the United States. The Schumer-Rubio plan would have handed out more than 30 million green cards to immigrants primarily from countries with little to no history of Western institutions, but Sen. John Barasso (R-WY) praised Rubio’s efforts to expand the labor supply in this way:

I’m [a] child of immigrants. That is the history of this country. Immigration is good and important for our country. Legal immigration needs to really be modernized. Marco Rubio is working on that… We need additional labor.

Barrasso’s state of Wyoming has a population of about half a million people. Ironically, if just 1 million of Rubio’s 30 million green card recipients had moved to Wyoming — instead of more likely destinations in eastern states such as Georgia and Virginia— Wyoming could suddenly, almost overnight, have the same politics as California.

Generations of rural traditions passed down from parents to children would be electorally crowded out by the new traditions of new arrivals. Barasso never explained why he thinks adding millions of laborers from mostly poor countries would improve schools, hospitals, or job markets in states like his own, or why it would be “important for our country” to resettle millions of immigrants with green cards from non-Western countries.

Read all of Ms. Hahn’s report by clicking here.

Frankly, all of this makes me very concerned about any Republican running for the Presidency in 2016.  We know Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush can’t be trusted to protect AMERICAN WORKERS, can any of them?

In Minnesota, refugee resettlement characterized as form of slavery

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 27, 2015

In an interesting coincidence, yesterday we posted a guest column from ‘Idaho Patriot’ about refugee resettlement as modern-day slavery and then right on the heels of that we see the same theme echoed in Minnesota—where the ‘Pockets of Resistance’ are getting organized and expanding.

Here is an article at the Morrison County Record about a concerned private citizen who is taking his own personal time to research and speak about what he is learning.

Article entitled: Speaker in Little Falls: Illegal immigrant, refugee resettlement done as a form of slavery.

Ron-Branstner

Ron Brantsner standing in front of list of the nine major federal refugee resettlement contractors in Little Falls, MN. Photo at the Morrison County Record.

Ron Brantsner, with the former Minutemen Civil Defense volunteer border watch group, was in Little Falls July 23. He was invited to the area to speak about how corporations and volunteer agencies bring illegal immigrants and refugees to Minnesota as a form of “slavery,” to do jobs Americans wouldn’t do, for low wages.

Brantsner, formerly of Minnesota, now has a residence in California.

Invited by “a gentleman out of Little Falls,” Brantsner said, “I don’t contact anybody. People reach out to me. I don’t go solicit this, I don’t get paid for this, I don’t belong to any organizations.

“When I get invited, I’m a normal everyday citizen just livin’ the dream,” he said.

Brantsner told the group that with funding from the federal government, the volunteer agencies or “Volags” as he called them, had targeted Minnesota because of the generous welfare benefits in the state. The targeted areas were those where poultry processing plants, and meat packing plants were located, he said.

Brantsner said once illegal immigrants and refugees move into a community, its Social Services, health care and educational resources are overwhelmed, with counties and taxpayers footing the tax burden.

He went on to discuss the role of large foundation grants.  The foundations are connected with BIG MEAT working to colonize communities for their own selfish cheap labor needs.

Read it all.

Great business model isn’t it?  State and local taxpayers help pick up the tab when salaries are too low to support large immigrant families.

This post is archived in our new ‘Pockets of Resistance’ category so that others of you might know, and get inspiration, about what your fellow Americans are doing to save America!  There are many more volunteers like Ron Brantsner trying to get the word out on their own dime.  Meanwhile the pro-Open Borders side is well-funded thanks to big business, the Chamber of Commerce and Leftwing foundations.

Fiscal Year 2014 Refugee Employment Entered Rates: These rates stink!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 17, 2015

Check out this map I came across today in my research.  It is at the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) website and represents the caseload of refugees getting help from federal programs to find employment in each state.  You pay for this! Now look at the employment rates!

Holy cow!  Some of these are really low.  So much for the idea that refugees quickly become self-sufficient!

If I were ORR I would be embarrassed to publish this information!

If I’m reading this correctly, why are we sending so many refugees to Texas (just as one example) when only 46% are finding employment. And there are states with even much lower rates than that. Geez, look at Florida!

Kind of makes you wonder if indeed the Cloward-Piven strategy (use the poor to bring on the revolution) is alive and well under Obama!

Cleveland City Councilman seeing dollar signs for city: “USS Refugee ship is coming to port. Get on.”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 17, 2015

joe-cimperman

Councilman Joe Cimperman: Hurrah! Here come the third worlders to colonize Cleveland!

Update July 18th:  More on Ohio, here.

If you live in Cleveland or any other Rust Belt city this may be the most important article you will read this year (or for years to come).  I simply haven’t the time to analyze it all for you, but for any activists concerned with the future of your community, this reporter (Michelle Jarboe McFee) at The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer has done her homework.

You now must demand full transparency from local elected officials and if necessary figure out where and how to throw a shoe in the machinery of government!  Find out who is going to benefit financially from the re-development in this public-private partnership scheme to colonize Cleveland.

How much does Presidential candidate and Governor John Kasich know about the plan to welcome refugees to Cleveland?

If I lived in Ohio, I would also be trying to find out right now how “welcoming” Governor Kasich has been to this plan.  He surely knows about it!

Before you read “Dream neighborhood….,” please go to a story we posted exactly two years ago yesterday about how Welcoming America had come to Cleveland to get this ball rolling.

Somalis will be invited to be part of the “Dream” neighborhood!  Will they live in one big happy multicultural melting pot along side Hindu Bhutanese and Christian Ukrainians?

Changing America by changing the people! Story, sounds like a blueprint for Obama’s plan to “seed” your cities and towns with “New Americans.”

Here is how Ms. McFee begins her report at The Plain Dealer (hat tip: Julie).

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Kat Oberst Ledger and her husband, Art, recall when West 48th Street teemed with drug dealers and sounds of gunfire peppered the night. Now their street, near the intersection of Cleveland’s Stockyards and Clark-Fulton neighborhoods, is quiet at sundown. Empty houses sit, windows boarded, awaiting demolition. A hummingbird sanctuary and gardens have sprung up on vacant lots.

During the last decade, the Ledgers say, the neighborhood has improved. It also has emptied out, thanks to foreclosures, abandonment and urban decay. But the Ledgers could be welcoming new neighbors – hailing from places as far-flung as Bhutan, Somalia and Ukraine – over the next few years, if a consortium of community leaders, nonprofit groups and public officials has its way.

These newcomers, refugees fleeing danger or persecution in their home countries, need places to live. Cleveland has plenty of empty homes, many of which could be rehabbed rather than bulldozed if potential landlords knew tenants were on their way. That supply-and-demand equation is the basic premise of the Dream Neighborhood, a plan to reinvigorate a slice of the city’s West Side by appealing to refugees while improving living conditions for existing residents.

On Friday, the Cleveland City Planning Commission will get its first look at this land-use concept, during an introductory presentation at City Hall. At this point, there’s nothing that requires a public vote. There’s no mountain of government money on the table, though councilmen have pushed for more demolition spending to raze the worst eyesores in the neighborhood. But there appears to be city support, from Mayor Frank Jackson on down, for the idea of making Cleveland a more welcoming place, a haven for people forced to leave their home countries.

[….]

Cimperman wants to capture some of those new households and concentrate them near Thomas Jefferson school, chipping away at a citywide vacancy challenge that spans thousands of properties. He envisions a repopulated neighborhood where longtime residents live next door to refugees who help maintain shared gardens, find jobs in the area and start businesses on Clark and Storer avenues, two depleted commercial corridors.

“I’m telling you now,” Cimperman says, conveying his passion for the project with words that can’t be printed in a family newspaper, “the … USS Refugee ship is coming to port. Get on.”

Please read on, this is great reporting (even if you don’t like what you are hearing)!

One big problem—-so where are the jobs?

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.

I say YES!  And, that is why Donald Trump is rising in the polls—he is talking about it.

Add one more to the list of countries whose nationals can stay in the US forever—Nepal

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 3, 2015

The Temporary Protected Status (TPS) category, a legal immigration program, is anything but temporary.  The Obama Administration has just added Nepal to its list of countries whose citizens can stay as temporary refugees, work (and probably vote!) here forever because the temporary designation is simply extended every time it expires.

I say this repeatedly, but when your friends (or your Member of Congress) says legal immigration is good, remember TPS and know that they don’t know what they are talking about.

“Temporary” refugees from Nepal will send US dollars back to rebuild the country after the April earthquake. Photo: http://time.com/3928685/nepal-earthquake-recovery-donors-food-rice/

The gist of it is that we would be considered bad people if we sent nationals back to their home country in the middle of a crisis, but the problem is that ten years or more after the crisis is long over, we simply extend their stay as they wait for the Obama/Republican amnesty.  The temporary designation is a sham!

From NBC News:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has granted Nepal Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under the Immigration and Nationality Act following the devastation of the massive 7.8-magnitude earthquake of April 25 and subsequent earthquakes and aftershocks which are estimated to have killed over 5,200 people, injured more than 12,500 people, and displaced approximately 2.8 million people.

This designation will allow approximately 10,000 to 25,000 Nepali nationals currently in the United States to stay and to work until December 2016, even if their visas expire, without threat of being detained or deported.

They will be permitted to send money out of the country (called remittances) which is a drain on OUR economy!  In 2012, $123,273,000,000 left the US via remittances to the third world.  The next time you see one of those studies being promoted by the likes of ‘Welcoming America’ about how immigrants boost the local economy, ask if they included remittances leaving America in their study!

In addition to safety concerns, being authorized to work in the United States will allow Nepali nationals to work and send money back to Nepal to help the country rebuild.

Other countries which have been granted TPS in the past due to ongoing armed conflict, environmental disasters, and other extraordinary conditions include Haiti, Honduras, El Salvador, and Syria.

More at NBC here.

By the way, I heard recently that there are up to 25,000 Syrians in the US eligible to stay under TPS.

For a laugh, check this out:   Hondurans were given TPS in 1999!  Salvadorans in 2001 and Haitians in 2011.   So much for TEMPORARY!

There is an application in for Yemen too!

Idaho: Get ready for Somali refugees as county approves huge meatpacking plant near Boise

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 21, 2015

Update June 22:  Twin Falls, ID newspaper editor attempts to silence RRW, here.   And, Boise Mayor welcomes third world to Idaho, here.

One more piece of the puzzle has been found!  Idaho will ‘welcome’ refugees because big industries need cheap labor (for jobs Americans won’t do, right!).

BIG MEAT changing America! Filling those wide open spaces with a massive meat processing facility and bringing in refugee labor to fill the jobs! Watch for it!

Reader Dave saw our post yesterday about Twin Falls and the Chobani Yogurt plant, and now gives us hot news that Ada County is going to get a meatpacking giant!  Kuna, in Ada County, is less than a half an hour from Boise (the largest refugee resettlement site in Idaho).

We have for years told you that since Bill Clinton supplied the first refugees for Iowa meat processors (here), that BIG MEAT was changing rural America with the help of the UN/US State Department and its ‘religious’ resettlement contractors acting as head hunters for big business.

This is one of literally dozens of posts here at RRW about the role meatpackers are playing in changing America.

Remember readers, it is all about the money!

The Somalis, in particular, move around the country as meatpacking jobs become available, but surely the welcome wagon in Idaho expects Congolese, Burmese, and Bhutanese slave laborers to help fill the employment needs.  Mark my words, no matter how high the meatpacker says the salaries will be, they will be too low for anyone other than immigrants and refugees whose families are being subsidized through generous welfare gratis the US taxpayer!

Before reading on, see BOISE MAYOR ROLLS OUT WELCOME MAT FOR REFUGEES!  I want to barf every time I see our elected officials sell out America with the help of the refugee resettlement ‘do-gooders.’

From KTVB.com:

KUNA, Idaho — There are hundreds of new jobs coming to the Kuna area, thanks to the county’s approval of a meat processing facility near the small town.

Right now, there’s a field East of Kuna that’s home to some whistlepigs and a little bit of heavy machinery. But, business leaders say by next year, it will be home to 600 jobs.

Thursday night, along with his fellow Ada County Commissioners, Dave Case approved the building of a 380,000 square foot, $100 million meat processing plant. “Obviously, it will be good for the economy.”

They haven’t broken ground yet, but crews are already doing some prep work. It’s a joint venture between the J. R. Simplot Company and a Texas meat packing company, Caviness Beef Packers. Kuna Mayor Greg Nelson says it will be a huge economic boost for the bedroom community, which has few jobs of its own right now.

There is more, read on.    These county commissioners are dumb enough to think that lots of locals will find work cutting meat.  Or, maybe they know better and are lying to the public!

Neighbors and members of the public are worried about smells and environmental problems, but they will have a lot more to worry about when the Somalis come to town!

By the way, do you remember that Senator Jeff Sessions fingered the meatpackers in 2013 as one of the big industries lobbying for amnesty, here.

Endnote:  I would be interested to know who made a killing selling this land to the meat giant?
