Comment worth noting: Let’s have a Repatriation Fund to send unhappy refugees home

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 16, 2015

In response to our post earlier about the unhappy Bhutanese refugees in America, commenter CW suggested we establish a fund to repatriate them.

It is a brilliant idea!  The Bhutanese are not the first who came to America with ideas about how wonderful life would be here only to become disillusioned.  It must be an awful shock for these quiet (mostly Hindu) people who have been born and raised in camps to be dropped off in rough American cities, expected to work at the most menial jobs, maneuver through the welfare system, and learn how to avoid the thugs they are often settled alongside.

This idea was one I thought about when a lot of Iraqis who came here a few years ago were so unhappy.  I advised some to contact the Iraqi embassy in Washington to see if the embassy could finance their way home.

Here is CW’s tongue-in-cheek comment that is actually a really good idea for reforming the Refugee Resettlement Program:

Gives me an idea! How about we apply to the State Dep’t for grant to establish Repatriation Services? Sort of like a revolving door: Catholic Charities brings them in, and Repatriation Services escorts them out! RS also could take all those poor illegals who “were brought here through no fault of their own” and repatriate them, too!

How about it, Comrade?!?!

For those of you who say this would be expensive, I say, no it wouldn’t!  It would be cheaper to provide a plane ticket and maybe a little start-up money then to provide years of social services (including the mental health services the unhappy Bhutanese are requiring).

By the way, the Bhutanese are really Nepali people, so we might work a little deal with Nepal (a little foreign aid perhaps) to take them there.   (I wonder what we are paying the countries who are taking the Guantanamo prisoners—a bundle I bet!).

Do you know that right now, the refugees who are flown here are loaned the airfare money and must begin paying it back almost immediately.  The contractors do the dunning letters and the collecting and get to keep a cut for themselves.  Thus it is almost impossible for an unhappy refugee to ever gather the necessary money to buy their own ticket home.

Come on Congress, how about a Repatriation Fund and a little start-up money!

Director of the Office or Refugee Resettlement Resigns

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 30, 2014

This is a story we missed earlier this month, but Chris Coen at Friends of Refugees blog spotted the news and reported on it here. (Hat tip: Joanne)

Eskinder Negash resigns.

Eskinder Negash, who has served as the Director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement for the last six years, tendered his resignation on December 9th, see it here, calling himself not a “political man.”  Of course the implication is that the job is a meat-grinder.

Check out Coen’s critical commentary of the Director’s time in his leadership role.

We don’t know what was going on behind the scenes that would push Negash out without having a plan for his future (as he indicates in his letter), but my big problem with his position there is that he himself was a federal contractor at the supposedly charitable US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), now on the federal payroll for 99% of its funds, before he came to the ORR.  By the way, the present head honcho at USCRI (Negash’s former boss) was also Bill Clinton’s Director of the ORR!

His partner over at the US State Department, Anne Richard, is also a former contractor.  And, I will bet that Negash is replaced by yet another high ranking executive from one of the nine federal contractors.***

The incestuous nature of the relationship between grantor and grantee must be investigated by Congress!  You can be sure the present system does not bode well for the US taxpayer being assured that waste, fraud and abuse is being monitored closely.  Heck, if there was an effort to seriously watch the contractors, the federal manager (Richard or Negash) would never get a job on the outside in the refugee industry again.

*** These are the nine VOLAGs (contractors) which monopolize the refugee resettlement program.  Let’s see which one sends a top level staffer to replace Negash!

Dover, NH update: No refugees coming (yet!), but mayor wants a plan and federal legislation…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 21, 2014

…..that would give local communities more say in the matter, assure financial help!

This is an update of the hot story we reported last summer about the possibility of the US State Department granting authority to a wannabe refugee resettlement agency to begin resettling refugees into the Tri-cities area of New Hampshire.  The nascent plan was killed when it appeared that a planned public meeting would be explosive.

Sensible Dover Mayor Karen Weston wants a plan! Bio here: http://www.dover.nh.gov/government/boards-and-commissions/city-council/index.html

Backpedaling now, the resettlement agencies in the state say there are no plans in the immediate future for Dover and surrounding towns.  However that isn’t the most important thing about this article!  First we learned some new bits of information and secondly, and most astoundingly, the Mayor of Dover wants to seek federal legislation to give communities a greater say in resettlement plans for American cities.  Wow!

She needs to call for a meeting of  bipartisan(!) mayors from “pockets of resistance” including mayors of Athens, GA, Amarillo, TX, Springfield, MA, Lynn, MA, Manchester, NH and Lewiston, ME for a start!

From Foster’s Daily Democrat:

DOVER — There are no plans to resettle African immigrants in the Tri-Cities, according to state officials and two refugee relocation groups.

The refugee issue emerged last summer when representatives from the Manchester-based Organization for Refugee and Immigrant Success, or ORIS, approached Dover officials about becoming a resettlement community. The group appeared to back away from the plan amid concern from residents and local officials.

Barbara Seebart, the state refugee coordinator for the N.H. Department of Health and Human Services, said she’s not aware of any plans for refugee resettlement in the Tri-Cities.

This is the first we have heard that there is a certain time period for wannabe refugee contractors to get approval:

ORIS is a social service agency not authorized by the federal government to resettle refugees and therefore it cannot place people in Dover, according to Seebart. That federal authorization process could take 18 to 24 months.

Dover mayor wants a plan in advance!  (Just like the mayor of Athens, GA)  And, she wants federal legislation!   Me too! And, I have ideas on how it should be crafted.

Mayor Karen Weston doesn’t oppose refugee resettlement but believes host communities should have more control in determining how many can arrive each year. She also believes the federal government should offer funding to offset the effects on city and school budgets.

“There are no plans today, but it can happen any day,” Weston said. “That is why we want to be proactive and (pursue) possible legislation with the federal government.”

[….]

She hopes to arrange a conference call with Rochester Mayor T.J. Jean, Somersworth Mayor Dana Hilliard and members of the state’s congressional issue to address those immigration law changes. Weston expects that call won’t happen until next year.

The U.S. has been accepting refugees since the early 1980s. New Hampshire currently receives between 250 and 550 of these legal immigrants each year, Seebart said. Most live along the Interstate 93 corridor from Nashua to Concord, although some have been placed in Laconia.  [Note to the mayor, be sure to arrange for at least those New England mayors asking for a moratorium to join your call!–ed]

This next line may be factually correct, but certainly local elected officials should be part of any plan coming down from the feds especially as it will involve high costs for local taxpayers for everything from health care, to subsidized housing (see Seattle!), to education for the kids and, not to be forgotten,the criminal justice system!

Cities and towns cannot block refugee resettlement, the same way they cannot restrict people of any race or ethnic group from moving in.

Then get this!  Seebart says there is “extensive collaboration” before refugees are resettled.

“Extensive collaboration” my foot!  They may have a meeting with “stakeholders,” but the general public is not invited!  Heck, they have already demonstrated reluctance to hold a public meeting (where contractors and the State Dept would stand before the public and answer questions) as everyone who followed the controversy this summer noticed. 

Regardless, refugees don’t just show up in host cities overnight. There is a well-established federal system for refugee resettlement that includes extensive collaboration with local communities, Seebart said.

[….]

“If a new resettlement site is being nurtured,” she [Amy Marchildon a resettlement contractor in NH] said, “there would be a long process of engaging city government and community social support services and the community.”

I’ll bet we have 50 posts on New Hampshire over the years due to the many refugee controversies happening there.  Click here to learn more.

As the Republicans take over, will that change anything about refugee resettlement?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 5, 2014

No.

Bye Bye Harry! Guess he made a big boo-boo here in 2013. Going nuclear: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/senate-nears-vote-curbing-filibusters-article-1.1524644

See GOP takes over (if somehow you missed the news overnight!).

Remember the Refugee Resettlement program, as we know it (run by federal contractors with vested financial interests in bringing in more and more immigrants), has been around for nearly 35 years and has marched on under the radar and unchallenged until recent years.  Remember that it was Pres. George W. Bush who presided over the three biggest years in which Somalis (for instance) were admitted to the US.

For avid followers of RRW there is (in my view) only one way to slow this program and that is for you to continue to be vocal where you live, demand accountability from all those pushing to overload your towns and cities, and continue to develop ‘pockets of resistance’ until the point in time when Washington is forced to listen.

And, then the next step after that is to get the first-ever serious Congressional oversight hearings of the whole original law created by Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden and signed by Jimmy Carter—the Refugee Act of 1980—which has never been thoroughly reviewed with an eye to reform or complete repeal.

By the way, if Obama succeeds in shoving amnesty down our throats, it will only serve to create more anger toward immigrants (and their supporters) in general.  And, Republicans who think they can negotiate and capitulate to the Obama immigration agenda in order to take immigration off he table for 2016 will be stunned and shocked as the issue will not go away.

How much immigration we allow going forward is the most important decision our government will make in determining whether America survives or it doesn’t.  You must stay in the fight!

Illegal alien advocacy group alerts non-citizens to states where they can vote without ID

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 30, 2014

And, there are twenty, twenty! states including my Maryland that allow voters to show up (and vote!) at a polling place without any identification.

La Raza’s good pal!

It is not just the illegals….

Remember also, we are not talking only about someone who recently sneaked across the border, but millions of legal immigrants who are here as refugees, temporary refugees in the Temporary Protected Status program (includes hundreds of thousands from Central America), the ‘Dreamers,’ and all sorts of others with permanent resident status who have not yet acquired citizenship.  All are able to vote.

As a matter of fact, even in those states that do require ID, those LEGAL immigrants (non-citizens) with drivers licenses may well be voting too!

Here is the story at the Daily Caller:

The pro-amnesty Hispanic activist organization the National Council of La Raza helpfully promoted a Washington Post article explaining which states people can vote in without having to use a photo ID.

“Voter ID laws are at-issue across the country, with newly Republican-controlled legislatures having passed them in numerous states after the 2010 election,” explained The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake. “Most states still request some form of ID, but don’t require it. Another 20 states don’t require identification. In case you’re wondering where your state is at in all of this, a helpful (sic) graphic from the Post’s graphics team.”

So who ended up using the Post’s helpful graphic? The country’s foremost pro-amnesty Hispanic immigrant organization.

Go here (Washington Post) to see the list of states and what sort of ID (or none at all) that is required.

German politician: Let German families take refugees into their homes

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 11, 2014

Here is the story at Reuters.  What do you think?

Martin Patzelt with Angela Merkel: Even the UN likes the plan

LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Citizens in Germany, one of the most sought-after destinations for refugees, should be allowed to host asylum seekers in their homes to ease the pressure on the government to provide adequate housing for them, a politician said on Friday.

Martin Patzelt, a lawmaker and member of the Christian Democratic Union, said households should be permitted to provide free lodging to refugees, leaving only the cost of living and healthcare to the government.

He said the measure would save Germany a considerable amount of money housing refugees, and provide an alternative to crowded temporary shelters, hotels and unused gyms.

Germany, the European Union’s biggest economy, is one of the world’s top destinations for people fleeing oppression and war.

It had 65,700 new asylum claims in the first half of the year, the largest number among industrialized nations, mainly due to a rise in applications by Syrians, according to the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

Here is my view:

I think they should do it.  I think if the responsibility of the whole refugee program were placed back in the hands of  those willing to put their own money (and comfort) on the line, we would all find out very quickly what the capacity is for a community or country to “welcome” refugees.   In fact, if I were in charge I would require the whole US resettlement program to be run with private charity, with private sponsors (as it was prior to Ted and Joe and Jimmy creating the program we have today in 1980 which has only one incentive—bring in more!).

Of course Patzelt is talking about citizens taking in refugees in addition to the German government housing others.  I don’t follow the economic news much, but wasn’t some of the volatility in the US stock market this week a result of some shaky German economic news—could the massive welfare Germany is providing migrants be pulling the country down?

In my plan, the number of sponsors would dictate the capacity for caring for the country—Germany or ours.

Canada private refugee sponsorship not working, not enough private money

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 23, 2014

Well, they have some other excuses, but that is the gist of it.

Unlike the US Canada still has some private charity for refugees.

Study is from Citizens for Public Justice – A member-driven, faith-based, public policy org. Research and analysis on poverty, ecological justice, and refugees in Canada.

Canada has both a government refugee resettlement program and one where churches and other civic groups can sponsor a family privately.

We previously had private sponsorship too until Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden (and other far Left Senators) pushed through the Refugee Act of 1980 which set up the present system (ostensibly a public-private partnership that is pretty much all public money) where you (the taxpayer) pay churches and some secular agencies to care for refugees for a brief period of time via resettlement contractors.

Now it looks like Canada’s private sponsorship isn’t going so well—when people have to use their own personal funds to take care of refugees their humanitarian zeal starts to wane.

I’m thinking the US should go to completely private sponsorship and then we would find out very quickly who really cares for refugees—those willing to put their money where their mouth is!

Here is the news from The Star.  Read between the lines—they don’t have enough private charitable dollars!  And, in a “blended” form of the program, they want to be able to pick the ethnic groups they care about and not have families chosen for them.

Bureaucratic delays and federal cuts to health coverage are hurting the ability of churches and other groups to bring in refugees under Canada’s renowned private refugee sponsorship program, says a new study.

Based on a survey of the 85 private groups that have formal refugee sponsorship agreements with Ottawa, recent policy changes appear to threaten the vitality of the sponsorship program launched in 1978 amid an outpouring of public concern over the Southeast Asian “boat people” crisis.

Groups were concerned with waits that stretch into years, and “processing hurdles that jeopardize their … future engagement in resettlement work,” said the survey conducted by the advocacy group Citizens for Public Justice.

“Cuts to the Interim Federal Health program (for refugees) have left church-based and other voluntary sponsoring groups on the line for previously-covered supplemental health costs,” said the 15-page report, titled Private Sponsorship and Public Policy.

“About one-third . . . report that their sponsoring groups have had to decrease or end their involvement in the PSR (private sponsorship of refugees) program as a result of this increased liability.”

Since 1978, more than 200,000 refugees have come to Canada through the efforts and financial support of faith groups, individuals, and community and ethnic organizations plugged into the program. In 2013 alone, 6,623 privately sponsored refugees were resettled in Canada.

Seventy-two per cent of the agreement holders are churches or church-connected groups, including Mennonite, Christian Reformed, United, Alliance and Presbyterian denominations.

Read it all.

Canada: Writer challenges assumptions about compassion for refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 4, 2014

Don’t assume that everyone in the ‘caring class’ is on the same page when it comes to the idea of permanent refugee resettlement into the first world.

Here is a piece from the Vancouver Sun (thanks to ‘pungentpeppers’) that will give you something to think about (when I say you, I mean all of those US refugee resettlement employees and volunteers working day and night to fill the US with needy migrants, who will stay here permanently, all in the name of humanitarian compassion for the downtrodden).

(I am assuming you are legitimately concerned for the world’s poor and not just flooding America with future Leftwing voters, or in the case of Republican RINOs with cheap foreign laborers, or want to keep your job.)

This is the caption from under a photo of Syrian refugees (emphasis is mine):

The purpose of asylum in conflict situations is not to confer a permanently transformed life onto the fortunate minority who are able to get out,” Paul Collier says, “but to preserve the country’s critically important skilled and politically engaged people until it is safe for them to return to rebuild their society.

Here is Douglas Todd writing at the Vancouver Sun about ten days ago:

Many Canadians make the case for compassion when they maintain the country should retain one of the world’s most generous rates for welcoming immigrants and refugees.

Canadians’ hearts go out when they hear about people struggling in countries like Guatemala, the Philippines, India and Lebanon. We tend to believe Canada has a duty to offer a better life.

Many Canadians want to be especially kind when they read about conflict-ravaged countries like Syria, Iraq, Burma, Sudan and Libya. Surely richer countries can embrace more of these suffering people?

It’s an understandable feeling. Compassion is key to virtually every spiritual world view and most secular philosophies. And there is no doubt many people are facing unimaginable hardship — particularly the roughly one billion at the bottom of the global economy.

But informed voices are warning that rich countries’ policies regarding immigration and asylum seekers are not nearly as compassionate as many want to think they are. Indeed, our migration policies may be doing more harm than good, especially for the most desperate.

This is by no means an issue just for Canadians. Europeans are engaged in a frank debate about the conflict between compassion and social realism in regards to asylum seekers from the Middle East and North Africa. Thousands are arriving each week, in dangerously fragile boats, onto Europe’s shores, trying particularly to get to the north where there are more job opportunities and better welfare.

In the U.S., according to a July Gallup poll, immigration has also recently surged to become the leading issue as a flood of children from Latin America illegally cross the U.S. border, trying to escape economic dysfunction, a dearth of social services and crime.

Like in Canada, it is often open-hearted American church*** and other religious leaders who join liberals to press for the U.S. to open its borders and welcome virtually all these young asylum seekers, and eventually their parents.

***Todd apparently doesn’t know that the “open-hearted American church” is paid to resettle refugees permanently, but we should forgive him that because the mainstream media never mentions how much money is involved.

There is much more, read it all.  The gist of it is this—-the third-world will continue to decline as long as western countries give asylum (refugee status) PERMANENTLY, so there is no incentive ever for people to go back and fix their homeland.

I’m sorry to say, this view (temporary refuge only) will never catch on because there is way too much money at stake now in the ‘humanitarian industrial complex’ for voices like Todd’s and Collier’s to be heard.

Lutherans again with their Christian charity claptrap!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 19, 2014

I can’t take it!  We are paying for their public relations campaign! 97% of their funding comes from taxpayers while they pretend that what they do is out of the goodness of their Christian hearts!

The nerve of these people sending out press releases with all this garbage about how much they love the migrants without mentioning that they are BEING PAID FOR THEIR POLITICAL ACTIVISM ON BEHALF OF ILLEGAL ALIENS AND REFUGEES, and how they are working with the government.  THEY ARE WORKING FOR THE GOVERNMENT AND THAT MEANS YOU AS TAXPAYERS!

I would love just once for them to admit that they are federal contractors*** in one of these deceptive PR pieces that are gobbled up by gullible (or worse, complicit) media outlets.  And, by the way, where the hell is the ACLU?

From Digital Journal:

LIRS CEO Hartke: “God is calling” (and God pays well!).

BALTIMORE, July 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — As the humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied migrant children and families fleeing Central America and crossing the border into the U.S. continues, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is working closely with government leaders, faith-based organizations and community partners to scale up its support and response efforts. “These children and families are leaving perilous circumstances in their home countries. They deserve safety, due process, and compassion,” says Linda Hartke, President and CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.

While the groundswell of love and support has largely been omitted from the continuing immigration debate, it has been deeply felt and noticed by faith-based and immigrant rights organizations across America in the form of people offering housing, wanting to deliver material goods, praying and advocating on behalf of children and families.

“The outpouring of support from Americans for the children and families at the center of the refugee crisis on our southern border continues to increase,” says Hartke. “In the past several months as the crisis has worsened, we have seen a surge in the number of calls from people who are volunteering to become foster parents to children in need. Many have told us that they ‘feel like God is calling’ them to take care of these children.”

 Network of “heroic service partners” are all PAID subcontractors!

“We feel a special responsibility towards children,” adds Hartke. “They should be kept safe and be with a loving family. Our network of heroic service partners all across the country support children and new foster families with excellence and compassion, but more foster families are urgently needed.”

They are bragging about how many (hundreds!) of calls they receive from loving people, called by God, wishing to sponsor the ‘unaccompanied alien teens,’ so then why send out this new appeal?

See their “heroic service partners” (aka federal subcontractors) here.  And, take a look at their posh headquarters building at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor while you are there!

LIRS and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops had been the largest contractors taking care of the illegal alien children, but have since been eclipsed by this Baptist gang out of Texas.   It is dog-eat-dog out there in the world of  “Christian” federal contractor competition!  And the new Baptist big dogs seem to be getting more than their fair share of the chow.

If you want to let LIRS (really LIARS) know how you feel, especially if you are of the Lutheran faith, about the “refugee” crisis at the border, this is their lobbyist/PR persons contact info:

Press contact: Miji Bell
410-230-2841 mbell@lirs.org

Stop pretending to be a “humanitarian” “religious” charity! How about some honesty for a change!

See their 2012 Form 990 here (the most recent one available).

They had a total revenue of $41,757,518 and $40,417,752 came from government grants (you!).

97% of their funds comes from government.   

Let’ talk about salaries for these quasi-government agencies (aka religious charities)!

They have 5 employees in the 6-figure salary range including CEO Hartke who made $214,237 in salary and benefits that year for her Godly good works.  And, for the record, Hartke is not the highest paid of the head-honchos of the federal contractors.***

Hartke makes more per year than a Member of Congress and about the same as a Supreme Court Justice, but no one can scrutinize their budget because they are supposed to be a private non-profit!

I guess these Lutherans missed the message about Caesar’s money!

I apologize to long-time readers who know all this, but we are getting so many new readers every day who have never heard this before that it bears repeating.

See all of our coverage of ‘unaccompanied minors’ invading America here.  And be sure to see one major publication that has the guts to report on the massive amount of taxpayer dollars flowing to phony non-profits.

***The contractors (we may have to start adding Baptist Children and Family Services to our list):

Major media mentions refugee resettlement moratorium calls in New England

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 24, 2014

Thanks to everyone who has sent me one version or another of this story about calls for refugee resettlement moratoriums in Springfield, Mass, Lewiston, Maine, and Manchester, NH.***    Regular readers here know the problems in those three New England cities well, so it is not news to us.

However….

What is news is that the news (mainstream media) is actually paying attention and making connections!  I don’t know which came first, the Fox News story (Fox does credit AP), or the AP story.

But, I’m thrilled to see the word “moratorium” used other than on the pages of RRW!

I haven’t enough time to analyze the articles for you, so please read them!  There is one thing that caught my eye, however, that needs to be mentioned.  The US State Department and its contractors choose resettlement cities with virtually no input from the locals (elected or otherwise), any reference to “stakeholders” usually means only FRIENDLY stakeholders (for the record, I hate that word)!

Daniel Langenkamp (right) Public affairs adviser at US State Dept. PRM http://www.linkedin.com/pub/daniel-langenkamp/1a/197/563

Once they have established a seed community of certain ethnic groups they then throw up their hands and say—what can we do? Families must be reunited and we can’t stop refugees from moving where there are ethnic enclaves of their kind of people.  You see their cop-out in these stories when State Department spokesman Daniel Langenkamp says this:

Such requests [for a moratorium—ed] are rare, said Daniel Langenkamp, a department spokesman.

“We make every effort to work with local officials and other stakeholders to ensure the resettlement of refugees is acceptable,” he said.  [If everything went so well there would never have been a RRW!—ed]

The Department, he said, does not place refugees unless an area is equipped to handle them. [LOL!–ed] The government’s work with refugees in Springfield is mostly about family reunification, and it cannot keep families from moving there if they are placed elsewhere, he said.

He doesn’t mention that other locales have asked for moratoriums as well.  I’m thinking of other “pockets of resistance” like Clarkston, Georgia and Amarillo, TX among others.

Note to any city contemplating “welcoming” refugees, remember this!  Once a seed community is established, the extended family comes, and there is no stopping it!  Any elected official calling for a slow-down or outright moratorium will be demonized!

See my ten reasons why a MORATORIUM is needed! —all the more important now that the border is being overwhelmed with mostly teenaged boys seeking “asylum.”

*** Search RRW for each of those three cities and find dozens of posts (spanning several years) on problems in each.
