Donald Trump, please try to stop this now! We are about to take 1,800 failed asylum seekers that Australia has rejected

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 12, 2016

When I wrote about this the other day, I didn’t really think our Department of State could be serious, but obviously the Obama Administration is going to shove it down our throats! How many more outrages will we see regarding refugees before January 20th when Donald Trump will be setting US immigration policy?

Watch the 2013 news about the asylum seekers, angry with Australia and the slow processing of their claims, burn down the asylum center.  Link here if this doesn’t open: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoL6dASFh8M

 

German press (Deutsche Welle) is reporting that we are going to transform Australia’s failed asylum seekers, mostly Muslims, into legitimate refugees bound for Anytown, USA.

I would like to know, from the ‘brains’ at the US State Department, how these 1,800 boat people were vetted.  And, most of all, why Australia turned them down!

Deutsche Welle:

The US has agreed to accept 1,800 refugees held at Australian-funded camps in Nauru and Papua New Guinea, according to media reports. Human rights groups have criticized the conditions in the camps. [What? And, that means because conditions are supposedly bad in an Australian camp, its inhabitants become our problem!—ed]

The Australian newspaper reported on Friday that the US and Australia were close to announcing an agreement for up to 1,800 mainly Muslim refugees from the Middle East, Africa and Asia on the island nations of Nauru and Papua New Guinea.

Prime Minster Malcolm Turnbull declined to comment on negotiations with the US. “There’s always speculation about these things” Turnbull said on Melbourne Radio. “And we never comment on them.”

[….]

An agreement struck with the administration of President Barack Obama could be opposed by his successor, Donald Trump who has called for tight restrictions on Muslim immigration into the US.

Human rights groups have condemned the conditions in the camps which they have condemned as an abrogation of Australia’s responsibilities as a signatory to the United Nations Refugee Convention. There have been street protests over the treatment of the refugees (photo).

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton said this week he was looking for countries that would accept all asylum seekers bound for Australia, including those who have had their refugee claims rejected, but who refuse to go home.

Donald Trump really can’t do anything yet, but your Washington reps can!

Call your US Senators and member of Congress!

I’ve been preaching for weeks/months that there is only one place right now (before January 20th) where you can have an impact if you choose to do the work!  That is Congress.  Call your representatives in Washington on Monday (they should be back to work on Tuesday, but their staffs should be working) and complain about this outrage.  Use it as an example of how out of control the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program is.

Tell your representatives to call the US State Department (the Asst. Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration) to put a halt to this sheer insanity!

And, while you are at it, tell your members of Congress to DEFUND the RAP in the FY2017 budget that will be before them beginning on Tuesday.

Guest commentary: 2016 Presidential Election—Choose wisely!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 7, 2016

This is a guest post written by a great friend of this blog about the most important election of our lifetimes.

By Nathanael Greene

This election will determine the fate of our nation. With Donald Trump we have a chance, and it is only that. Over the past few years we have learned to our shock and dismay just how corrupt and out of touch our elected officials really are. They have an agenda and it does not include the American people, except in extracting as much of our resources as possible. They are a powerful force. I don’t know if Donald Trump can overcome it, but I do know that no one else can.

podesta-bill-clinton-750x400

Message from Ann: For all you women out there who think you are voting for the first female president of the United States, it will be this diabolical duo who will be running the country—John Podesta and Bill Clinton—while Hillary naps.

Hillary Clinton personifies everything that is worst in Washington. In addition to being bottomlessly corrupt, she is an extreme leftist. She has worked and socialized with DC’s biggest extremists, for example her former boss, Robert Borosage, founder of the anti-American Center for National Security Studies, and former director of the subversive Institute for Policy Studies, and John Podesta, a calculating, committed hardcore leftist, who, like Hillary, is also serially corrupt. Her good friend VA Governor Terry McAuliffe has just pardoned 60,000 criminals so they can vote (for Hillary of course). This is vote fraud.

A vote for Hillary is a vote for an entrenched criminal class that must be routed out if our nation is to survive.

Despite his sometimes uncouth nature, Donald Trump’s message has resonated with everyday Americans because it is everyday Americans whose lives are being destroyed by the DC progressives. No other candidate in recent history – including Reagan – has so clearly spoken to our widespread angst about our country’s future. There are few, if any politicians, that actually grasp the reality. Trump does, and has articulated a comprehensive response that misses nothing.

He has issued a Contract with the American Voter to clean up Washington, DC. His first day in office Trump pledges to rescind all of Obama’s destructive executive orders, including those on guns and especially the border. He promises to repeal and replace Obamacare. He promises to abolish Common Core. His policy positions are clearly articulated, detailed and honest.

On the other hand, if you can convince yourself that Hillary’s mind-boggling corruption is not disqualifying, then perhaps her insane, misplaced policy prescriptions are. While our military sinks to the lowest level of readiness since WWI, our borders overflow with illegal aliens and terrorists, our individual rights are being stripped right and left, Hillary promises to expand upon those Obama policies that got us here in the first place. There is a great chart linked here that compares some of Trump’s positions with Clinton’s. It doesn’t pretend to be unbiased.

Trump for President 2016!

Hillary for Prison 2016!

Watch Obama tell a young woman that she can vote even if she is in the country illegally (see Fox News Neil Cavuto’s response).

German ministry: send illegal migrant Africans back immediately to send message, discourage more!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 6, 2016

…Blame Hillary for African invasion of Europe!

Where are you Tony Abbott (former Australian Prime Minister)?  Gee, about time that the dim bulbs in Europe are beginning to see the sense of a your suggestion from the spring of 2015—turn back the boats!  But, it strikes me that such a suggestion now is about a million migrants too late!

Here is the story at Reuters:

The German Interior Ministry wants to stop migrants ever reaching Europe’s Mediterranean coast by picking them up at sea and returning them to Africa, the Welt am Sonntag newspaper reported on Sunday.

In this photo made available Thursday, April 23, 2015, migrants crowd and inflatable dinghy as rescue vassel " Denaro " (not in picture) of the Italian Coast Guard approaches them, off the Libyan coast, in the Mediterranean Sea, Wednesday, April 22, 2015. European Union leaders gathering for an extraordinary summit are facing calls from all sides to take emergency action to save lives in the Mediterranean, where hundreds of migrants are missing and feared drowned in recent days. (Alessandro Di Meo/ANSA via AP Photo) ITALY OUT

Rescuing African men in the Mediterranean Sea in 2015. Why are rescuers wearing protective suits and gloves? You can guess. (Alessandro Di Meo/ANSA via AP Photo)

In what would be a huge shift for a country with one of the most generous asylum policies, the ministry says the European Union should adopt an Australian-style system under which migrants intercepted at sea are sent for processing at camps in third countries.

“The elimination of the prospect of reaching the European coast could convince migrants to avoid embarking on the life-threatening and costly journey in the first place,” the paper quoted a ministry spokeswoman as saying.

And so why would these African nations want the hordes parked in their country making trouble? (Wishful thinking on the part of Germany!)

The ministry’s proposal calls for migrants picked up in the Mediterranean – most of whom set off from conflict-torn Libya – to be sent to Tunisia, Egypt or other north African states to apply for asylum from there.

If their asylum applications are accepted, the migrants could then be transported safely to Europe.

If they turned only a few boats back to the African coast, or we bused back across our southern border a few busloads of illegal aliens immediately upon their arrival in Texas or Arizona, advertised it far and wide, the flow would slow immediately!

Our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive is here.

Blame Hillary!

Do not forget that it was Hillary Clinton who was responsible (Obama had to be persuaded) for destabilizing Libya and creating this migration route to Europe through Libya.

See one of our many posts on Hillary’s role in helping to create the European migration crisis by clicking here. Col. Gaddafi controlled Libya’s borders, now no one does!

Note when you visit that post that the longer video of Hillary gloating over the 2011 death of Col. Gaddafi has been removed. Here is the short version:

 

Hillary’s legacy and the death of Gadaffi…..

Yikes watch this prelude to the same interview (see Huma hand Hillary a phone):

US considering taking Australian illegal boat people, housed on Nauru, to US as refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 4, 2016

This is a BFF and should be vigorously opposed. (Where is our incompetent Congress?)

We have no responsibility for saving Australia from its hundreds of illegal aliens who attempted to reach Australia by boat and converting them to refugees to be seeded into your US towns and cities.

These are questionable asylum seekers that Australia does not want! They are not our problem!

This is Australia’s political hot potato.

That damn George W. Bush set a precedent about 9 years ago by taking illegal aliens who arrived on the island nation of Malta to the US as refugees. I was told (by insiders!) at the time that it was illegal!

Now we are going to pick up Australia’s illegal aliens!!!

See our huge archive on Malta by clicking here.  And, btw, there is no way to screen the boat people who arrived in Australian waters any better than there is those who we have taken from Malta.

Please elect Donald Trump and tell him to stop this madness!

From the Australian:

The US has strongly hinted that it has been in discussions with Australia about the possible resettlement of refugees from Nauru to the US.

The Australian last week revealed that refugees on Manus Island and Nauru will be offered permanent new homes in a handful of third countries, which could include northern hemisphere countries such as the US and Canada, as part of a multilateral resettlement deal the Turnbull government hopes to announce by the end of the year.

The resettlement deal would enable it to drastically downsize the processing centres on Manus and Nauru by offering permanent settlement to most of the 1800-odd recognised refugees on Manus and Nauru.

connie-paik

Read more about what US rep Connie Paik had to say about the negotiations at the Australian. Photo: https://www.linkedin.com/in/connie-paik-b3a30140

Sources told The Australian the government was in the final ­stages of negotiating the deals, of which several are understood to be in the northern hemisphere, suggesting the US or Canada may be being considered.

In response to questions about whether Australia and the US had held discussions over the issue of refugees on Nauru, the US State Department’s East Asian and ­Pacific Affairs Bureau spokeswoman Connie Paik appeared to confirm that talks had taken place.

Again, if these are good and honest refugees why isn’t Australia taking them to their own mainland???

North Carolina (again): How your tax dollars support ethnic activist groups

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 4, 2016

The timing of this $500,000 grant announcement from the Office of Refugee Resettlement to a local non-profit group for refugees from the DR Congo is so interesting—days before North Carolina could choose the next President of the US. (See yesterday’s post about North Carolina, here.)

raleigh-immigrant-community-inc

Raleigh Immigrant Community Inc. Motto: Unity, Justice, Work (for special people, but not Americans). Community organizers have received a $500,000 federal grant. http://ricinc.org/

It has been awhile since I’ve written about ETHNIC COMMUNITY SELF-HELP GRANTS.

Think about this, besides the fact that the federal grant encourages ethnic separation and non-assimilation by being geared, in this case in NC, to refugees from the DR Congo, your money is used to give special refugees (make work!) jobs and if this one operates as others have in the past, it encourages political involvement for their ethnic group.

I look at these non-profits as little ACORNS (remember ACORN).  They purport to be helping the poor (in special ethnic groups) and then they help them vote and become politically active for ‘their community.’  If you have ethnic community organizers working where you live, find out if they are being funded by you.

There is absolutely no need for this grant program from the Office of Refugee Resettlement. And, I wonder under what legal authority the feds have to pass out your money in this discriminatory fashion.

They already hire the nine major contractors and their hundreds of subcontractors to get the refugees settled. There is no need for spin-off non-profits being run with your money! Imagine the firestorm (!) if we wanted federal bucks (community organizing money) to organize a European-American ethnic support group! Or, how about North Carolina Trailer Park Redneck Residents for Justice!  (I love rednecks and ‘deplorables’, why not organizing bucks for them/us?)

Before I get to this one from North Carolina, see this list of $millions in grant money for special groups of people (no wonder African Americans notice that immigrants are getting more stuff than they are).

Here is the news about the Raleigh Immigrant Community (LOL! timing of grant announcement is amusing!) from the Daily Tarheel:

The Raleigh Immigrant Community (RIC) started a program to help immigrants in the Triangle area after receiving a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement.

The RIC began as a community adjustment support group for refugees from the Democratic Republic of the Congo that met through the UNC Refugee Mental Health and Wellness Initiative. They started meeting in January 2015 and became an official nonprofit in April 2016.

The RIC received the ethnic community self-help grant from the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement. The grant will give them half a million dollars over three years.  [get that federal money out now before a possible Trump Admin comes in!—ed]

For more go to our category Ethnic Community Based Organizations.’ They were previously called ECBOs. I haven’t written much about them in recent years, but when you hear about the over a billion in tax dollars that ORR wants to run their programs, know that grants like this (for special people) are why it is so costly.

Secrecy abounds as Unaccompanied Alien Children arrive in massive numbers again, on par with 2014!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 3, 2016

No surprise! Election year silence about invasion at our Southern Border, as they make a mad dash for America before Trump is elected!

In 2014 it was wall-to-wall media coverage of the run on our southern border by what turned out to be mostly teenage boys from Central America. The country was stunned that year as over 53,000 so-called Unaccompanied Alien Children were seeking asylum from Central American countries, mostly El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

illegal-aliens

In 2015 68% of the “children” entering the US were 15-18 years old. And, 68% were males!

 

They have become the wards of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, although they are NOT refugees. Legitimate refugees must prove they would be persecuted for race, religion, political persuasion if returned to their home country. Running from crime or lack of opportunity is not a legal criteria to receive refugee status.

The cost to the US taxpayer is approaching $1 Billion a year to care for the ‘kids’ (see below).  More than half of ORR’s whole budget is for these illegal aliens!

A few hundred alien ‘kids’ short of the 2014 levels!

After a slowdown in 2015, to about half the number, in FY2016 the number for the year rose to 52,147!!!  And, have you heard a peep from the media (other than some on-line websites) about the huge numbers being distributed around the country?  Go here and see how many your state received in FY2016.***

What got me thinking about this was an article yesterday by Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart where he reported on an emergency intergovernmental conference call to identify federal properties in which to place the thousands still arriving.  Here is how he opens his story:

The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) is holding a series of emergency conference calls with all departments and agencies of the federal government requiring them to search for and vet “properties to temporarily house [unaccompanied alien children]” because “the need for facilities continues to grow.”

Turns out there is a multi-agency Facility Task Force (FTF) for the Unaccompanied Children (UC) scouting for properties near you!  LOL! The feds have completely abandoned the word “alien” from what they at one time referred to as ‘Unaccompanied Alien Children.’

Continue reading here.

NOT refugees!

Let me remind readers, these ‘children’ are not ‘refugees,’ they are not legitimate asylum seekers either, but the Open Borders agitators and the Obama Administration have been working for the last 8 years  to change the definition of a refugee for this group of illegal aliens—now numbering in the tens of thousands and distributed to all 50 states and the District of Columbia!  The wide distribution is going to make it extremely difficult to ever locate them again!

NOT little children!

The younger children in the chart (below) actually crossed the border with Mom, but they don’t tell you that.  And, although they apparently have not tabulated the ages of the ‘children’ in FY2016, the pattern is likely similar for the fiscal year that just closed on September 30th.

 

Mostly males!

 

They are costing taxpayers nearly a BILLION bucks annually!

This (below) is the projected cost for the ‘kids’ in FY2017 from the House Appropriations Committee Report (and these are FY2016 levels!!!).  Look for efforts in the lame duck session of Congress to increase taxpayer funding for the mostly teenage illegal alien boys.

 

 

***Here are the top states (received over 1,000 each just this past fiscal year) where the UACs were distributed to “sponsors.” This is a good indicator of which states have the most illegal aliens from Central America. Go here for all the states, and note there is a link for counties there too.

California (7,381)

Texas (6,550)

Florida (5,281)

New York (4,985)

Maryland (3,871)

Virginia (3,728)

New Jersey (2,637)

Georgia (1,735)

Massachusetts (1,541)

North Carolina (1,493)

Tennessee (1,354)

All of our posts on this topic are tagged ‘Unaccompanied minors’ because that was a tag we used years ago, before the designation (terminology) for these ‘children’ went through an evolution.

First month of fiscal year 2017: 9,935 refugees admitted to the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 2, 2016

This is the largest October resettlement in more than a decade (maybe even longer).

trump-with-plane

Obama State Dept. wants to seed as many refugees as they can in new towns/cities before Inauguration Day (just in case!).

See Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart with what the numbers mean, here.

This is the highest October number for  at least 10 years (see chart below).

I maintain that the reason for this huge rush to place as many as possible in dozens of new towns and cities, for example, Wilmington, DE, and Poughkeepsie, NY , is to get them (and more offices) established before a possible Trump administration comes in in January and TRIES to put the brakes on the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program.

Also, there is a good story at CNS news out yesterday which looks at numbers in a different way, reporter Patrick Goodenough gives an accounting for CALENDAR year 2016.  It can get confusing, but we tend to use the FISCAL year because that is the start of the new year for the US State Department and its resettlement contractors.

We are now one month into FY2017, and here is where the 9,935 refugees have been seeded over the last four weeks.  Map is from the Refugee Processing Center:

 

screenshot-57

Alaska got 17 this month and Hawaii 3.

 

And then this (below) is a chart showing monthly admissions since 2006, note how low October normally is! We don’t have data going back further, but I will bet you would have to go back to the 1980s to find October resettlements this large.  BTW, September is always huge because as the last month of the fiscal year, they want to try to reach their ceiling.

New York Times uses the B-word (boycott) when writing about Chobani Yogurt

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 1, 2016

They raised the issue, not me!

I’m not complaining about the New York Times, this is what they do, but I thought you should see this article (just in case you didn’t know you were a xenophobic hater for questioning what Hamdi Ulukaya is doing to Twin Falls, Idaho).

They must be really fearing another B-word too—Breibart!

And, no surprise, they even bring Donald Trump into the story.

It doesn’t matter if Ulukaya’s plans to change Twin Falls have been done in secrecy. It doesn’t matter if he puts on the white hat of humanitarianism as he encourages a steady supply of cheap immigrant labor to be brought in at your (taxpayer) expense.  It doesn’t matter if some critics believe refugee labor is slave labor. It doesn’t matter if you object to the social and cultural changes he promotes for your community, or that he got lucrative government contracts during the Obama Administration.

None of those things matter to the NYT which is out to silence free speech. Only one thing matters and that is you are a hater of foreigners and they get to call you one of their favorite grown-up words—xenophobic—for daring to question his business practices that depend on your tax dollars!

Here is the story:

By many measures, Chobani embodies the classic American immigrant success story.

screenshot-14

That is Lavinia Limon on the left. She is the CEO of a federal refugee resettlement contractor (USCRI–97% funded by you) and Mr. Chobani Yogurt at the Clinton Global Initiative. Ms. Limon is paid to supply Chobani Yogurt with legal refugee labor for his Twin Falls, Idaho plant. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2016/09/05/this-federal-refugee-contracting-agency-is-97-taxpayer-funded/

Its founder, Hamdi Ulukaya, is a Turkish immigrant of Kurdish descent. He bought a defunct yogurt factory in upstate New York, added a facility in Twin Falls, Idaho, and now employs about 2,000 people making Greek yogurt.

But in this contentious election season, the extreme right has a problem with Chobani: In its view, too many of those employees are refugees.

As Mr. Ulukaya has stepped up his advocacy — employing more than 300 refugees in his factories, starting a foundation to help migrants, and traveling to the Greek island of Lesbos to witness the crisis firsthand — he and his company have been targeted with racist attacks on social media and conspiratorial articles on websites including Breitbart News.

Now there are calls to boycott Chobani. Mr. Ulukaya and the company have been taunted with racist epithets on Twitter and Facebook. Fringe websites have published false stories claiming Mr. Ulukaya wants “to drown the United States in Muslims.” And the mayor of Twin Falls has received death threats, partly as a result of his support for Chobani.

Online hate speech is on the rise, reflecting the rising nationalism displayed by some supporters of Donald J. Trump, who has opposed resettling refugees in the United States.

“What’s happening with Chobani is one more flash point in this battle between the voices of xenophobia and the voices advocating a rational immigration policy,” said Cecillia Wang, director of the Immigrants’ Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union.

Continue reading here.

I’m guessing that the calls on social media to boycott Chobani Yogurt must be having an impact, and I am further guessing that the NYT is not helping the yogurt company one bit with this story.

(I think most people had forgotten that there were calls to boycott Chobani Yogurt.)

Obama State Department is pouring refugees in at rate to admit 135,000 by September 2017

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2016

Just as we predicted, Obama’s State Department is admitting refugees at a rate not seen in decades. Are they trying to flood the zone before a possible Trump Administration takes the reins of government in January?  We think so!

I was having such fun researching numbers for my previous post, here, that I thought I would check the general flow for all refugees being admitted in the first three weeks of Fiscal Year 2017.  Obama has proposed a refugee admission plan for 110,000 refugees to be placed in your towns by September 30, 2017.  However, at the rate they are coming in, 135,000 could be here by that date.  (Most of Obama’s plans for previous years averaged much less than 70,000 a year***.)

SAMSUNG

Minnesota is the top resettlement state for Somalis. It is also the top secondary migration state as Somalis resettled elsewhere head there in large numbers. Note the Somali flags in this photo.

The 110,000 is a ceiling, so presumably to reach 135,000 they would have to “consult” with a weak Congress.

According to data maintained at the Refugee Processing Center, we admitted 7,780 refugees in the last 3 weeks.  That is 2,593 a week (from all religions and countries). Multiply that by 52 weeks in the year and we get 134,853.

Muslim refugees…

What I want to point out here are the Muslim refugees (3,517 in the first three weeks) and all of the different countries they come from. While we focus on the Syrians and the problems with vetting, make no mistake, they can’t properly vet any of these Muslims who we have picked up all over the world.

And, what good is vetting when the little kids we raised on our dime grow up to be jihadists as we have seen many times among Somali refugees primarily from Minnesota.

The most shocking number below is for Somalis in the first 3 weeks.  We are bringing them in at a rate NEVER seen. At this rate (335 a week) we could bring in over 17,000 by the end of the fiscal year Go here to see the top years we have ever had for Somali resettlement.  The previous top year was in the Bush Administration (2004) when we admitted, 12,814.

The United Nations wants to clean out the Somali camps in Kenya and it sure looks like we said, “yes master!”

So here are the countries from which we received Muslim refugees in the last 3 weeks (October 1 to October 21, 2016):

Afghanistan (173)

Azerbaijan (2)

Burma (180) These are the devout Rohingya! We have no data on them as they have left Burma! We pick them up in Malaysia and throughout that region of the world.

Central African Republic (13)

DR Congo (71) We were led to believe all of those from DR Congo were NOT Muslims

Djibouti (2)

Eritrea (6)

Ethiopia (65)

Iran (32)

Iraq (818)

Ivory Coast (3)

Mali (1)

Pakistan (9)

Rep. of S. Sudan (2)

Sierra Leone (1)

Somalia (1,007) This is a resettlement rate never seen before.

Sudan (75)

Syria (1,054)

Uganda (3)

Uzbekistan (1)

See this map below from the Refugee Processing Center showing where the 1,007 Somalis were distributed in the last 3 weeks. It won’t take long for large numbers of them to move to Minnesota as secondary migrants (they want to be with their own kind of people!).

 

screenshot-51

 

This map depicts Somali resettlement for the first 3 weeks of FY2017.  Alaska didn’t fit on the map, but it got 4.

Don’t like what you see?

There is only one thing you can do to slow this flow (besides electing Donald Trump) which at this rate would bring around 135,000 refugees to America by next fall and that is to persuade your member of Congress and US Senators to DEFUND the program in the lame duck Budget debate coming in November. 

See the first in a series of posts on the lame duck budget process by clicking here. This is not about Obama, your Congressional Representatives have the power to rein this in if they wanted to (and they don’t want you to know that they have that power!).

You have 16 days before election day to get a commitment from your Washington, DC representatives to DEFUND!

*** Check out this table which shows about the last ten years of refugee ceilings then actual resettlement numbers.  You can see it averages less than 70,000 a year. So at 135,000 that is almost double anything we have admitted in more than a decade. (I was too lazy to look up our final tally for 2016, but it came in around the 85,000 mark).

New refugee seeding site: Youngstown, Ohio

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2016

We have been trying to identify the new resettlement sites the US State Department has been bragging about.  They are very secretive about where they want to go next, but they need new sites as they wear out their welcome in long established sites and because Obama has determined that the numbers are being vastly expanded for FY2017 which is already underway.

tom-mrosko

Mrosko was involved with the Welcoming Cleveland initiative we mentioned here in 2013. There are about 600 refugees being placed in Cleveland now. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2013/07/16/tom-negri-and-welcoming-america-are-planning-to-change-cleveland-starting-tonight/

There is no list one can access (they have mentioned 47). There are only stories like this one that sneak into local news that tip us off as to where they want to go next.  For new readers, Catholic Charities would be a subcontractor of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The Catholics in Youngstown must have run out of poor Americans to care for there.

From WKBN News  (hat tip: Joanne):

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Catholic Diocese of Youngstown held a community forum to discuss the thought of bringing refugees to Youngstown.

About 200 people, both for and against the idea, attended the meeting at Saint Columba Hall Wednesday night.

It was an opportunity for those who are enthusiastic about the possibility of refugee resettlement, as well as those who may be resistant to the idea, to learn more about the issue, ask questions and engage in a dialogue.

“Maybe 25 to 30 people, which is not that many, and help them by being involved in the work of the Catholic Charities here,” said Cleveland Migration and Refugee Services Director Thomas Mrosco.

On that last point, we have been led to believe that a new resettlement site cannot be established unless it starts with 50 refugees in the first year.  Then, like it or not, the pattern is that the next year they will get 100-150 until they are like the town of Lancaster, PA be swamped with 700 needed third worlders arriving every year!

See our ‘Ten things you need to know if you are ‘welcoming’ refugees for the first time.’  Once a site is opened, there will be no going back and your town will not get to pick from the ethnic groups the DOS is bringing in.

Here is the original list of sites, click here.  And here, below, are the new sites we have identified so far:

Asheville, NC

Rutland, VT

Reno, NV

Ithaca, NY

Missoula, MT

Aberdeen, SD

Charleston, WV

Fayetteville, AR

Blacksburg, VA

Pittsfield, MA

Northhampton, MA

Flint, MI

Bloomington, IN

Traverse City, MI

Watertown, NY (maybe)
