See list of states receiving over 1,000 refugees in last 8 months; zip for Montana and Wyoming

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 16, 2015

I found this very informative map earlier this morning and want you to see it.   Just over 40,000 refugees have been resettled in the US this fiscal year (FY 2015 began October 1, 2014) and this map is up to date as of May 31, 2015.

Teddy and Joe created the Refugee Act of 1980! What do you know, Delaware has gotten a whole 6 refugees this fiscal year. That is a record high number I think!

Here are the states that have received over 1,000 refugees this fiscal year, so far:

Texas:  4,284

California: 3,370

New York: 2,297

Michigan: 1,817

Arizona: 1,810

Ohio: 1,681

Washington: 1,602

Georgia: 1,598

Pennsylvania: 1,535

Florida:  1,513

Illinois:  1,501

Minnesota: 1,426

North Carolina: 1,327

Kentucky: 1,070

Colorado: 1,054

Indiana: 1,038

Can you believe it!  Veep Joe Biden’s Delaware actually got a whole 6 refugees this year (zero has been their allotment in recent years).

Winners are Montana and Wyoming each with zero so far!

Just a reminder, these are the numbers for resettled refugees only, and it doesn’t include successful asylum seekers, Special Immigrant Visa holders, Cuban/Haitian parolees or the unaccompanied alien children now being treated as ‘refugees.’

The number one resettlement state in America is Texas (primer part I)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 7, 2015

Update June 9th:  Part III is here.  It is for everyone, not just Texans!

Update June 8th:  Part II is here.

I’m doing some research on Texas because I will be going there later this week.  There is so much material on the number one resettlement state so I plan to post a little every day until I leave.  For those of you who will be attending a gathering in Dallas, LOL!, this is your homework assignment!  You will be tested!

Global Nation mapIn Fiscal year 2014, Texas resettled 7,234 refugees.  However, that doesn’t tell the whole story because according to the Texas Dept. of State Health Services (an excellent source of information on refugees in Texas), the actual number of migrants legally being treated as refugees last year was really 12,800 (up 24% from the previous year!).

The website also tells you which counties got the most refugees.

The 12,800 includes refugees, asylees, parolees, special immigrant visa holders (these are Afghans and Iraqis), and victims of trafficking.

They hailed from 58 countries (therefore Texas taxpayers are on the hook for many expensive translators—gratis a Bill Clinton executive order—for all sorts of reasons—access to health care, school system problems and the criminal justice system).

When I went to several different sources, I find that over 150,000 refugees have been resettled in Texas since 1983, and that number doesn’t include secondary migrants from other states (Dallas County got the most secondary migrants last year–60% of all those arriving in Texas).

And, of course, it doesn’t include all of the children produced in three decades! Nor does it include the thousands of ‘unaccompanied alien children’ that may not have been distributed around the nation from last year’s border invasion.  Obama would like nothing more than to have them declared “refugees” as well (refugees get all forms of welfare upon arrival!).

Texas ranking

These numbers do not include all of the other categories of ‘refugees’ cared for by local resettlement contractors and your tax dollars.

The top resettlement cities in Texas are (resettlement is not limited to these sites, dozens and dozens of smaller cities and towns are receiving refugees):

Abilene

Amarillo

Austin

Corpus Christi

Dallas

El Paso

Fort Worth

Houston

San Antonio

For new readers, you might want to have a look at our archive on Amarillo which has developed into a ‘pocket of resistance’ as the mayor there has asked the federal government to slow the flow since the school system is suffering with the influx of non-English speaking children many of whom are illiterate in their own language.  The meatpacking industry is responsible for much of the resettlement to Amarillo (hunger for cheap labor!).

The top nations from which Texas received refugees in 2014 were in this order:  Iraq, Cuba, Burma, Afghanistan, and tied for 5th place Somalia and Bhutan(Nepal).

So when did Texas move into the number one spot in the nation?

For years and years other states ranked above Texas including California, New York and Florida.  According to this very cool graph (above right), it was in 2011 that Texas gained this dubious distinction.

And, if you are wondering why the number dipped in 2011, this is why:  That year it was learned that Iraqi terrorists disguised as refugees were arrested in Kentucky.  Turns out the pair had lied (can you believe it, they lied!) on their refugee application and it was only when they were found to be planning on helping Al-Qaeda in Iraq was it discovered that one of them had left fingerprints on an IED shard that was warehoused by the US military.  The shard came from an IED that had killed Pennsylvania National Guard troops.  They are in prison for life.

The arrest threw the Refugee Admissions Program of the US State Department into chaos because they had to re-screen thousands and thousands of Iraqis headed to America.  Iraqis make up the largest ethnic group we are admitting to America now at a rate of about 20,000 a year.  The majority are Muslims (both Shiites and Sunnis as we import their centuries old squabble to your towns!).

That is enough for today.  Here is your homework assignment:

In order to question this 35-year-old legal immigration program, you must first get the facts!

* Read our Fact Sheet, here.  Open and read all the links in this post!

* Go to the Texas Department of State Health Services website and learn all you can about the refugees coming to Texas.  Don’t miss the stats on their health conditions (refugees are admitted with TB, HepB, HIV and parasites).

* You have a State Refugee Coordinator and her name is Caitriona Lyons (she is Irish, btw), call her and ask her to direct you to the Texas refugee plan.  Here is a description of the plan and the legal requirement that every state have one (and they must keep it current).  Ask her to direct you to it and read it!

Remember in Texas your governor does have a say in what happens with refugee resettlement!  Where has he been?

Here is a whole list of State Coordinators in case others of you want to start your research!  Scroll down to Texas for Ms. Lyons contact information.

There will be further information and more homework tomorrow!

To date, 843 Syrian refugees admitted to the US; 92% are Muslims

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 22, 2015

Editor’s note:  I have so much news to post, but internet connection is dropping today.  If I disappear, know that I am frustrated about not getting it to you or posting your comments! Or, answering your many e-mails.

Since everyone is talking about the number of Syrians admitted to the US as refugees (see yesterday’s comments by House Homeland Security Committee chairman), I thought it was time to update the numbers.

Most of our Syrians are coming from UN camps like this one which house primarily Muslim refugees. Photo: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/jul/30/syria-aleppo-fight-continues-live

When I search the data base for Syrians I go back to calendar year 2012 (1/1/2012) so as to include those who might have gotten here right after the recent conflict began in 2011 (thus numbers you see published may vary some depending on when the source began counting).

I reported on May 1 that we had admitted 815 Syrians (92% Muslim) from 1/1/2012 to 5/1/2015.

This time I searched up until May 20th and here are the results:

* 843 Syrian refugees have been sent to your towns and cities.

* 508 of those came since January 1, 2015

* The top ten states receiving Syrians are:

Texas (107)

California (107)

Illinois (91)

Arizona (64)

Pennsylvania (54)

Michigan (34)

North Carolina (34)

New Jersey (31)

Florida (30)

Indiana (29)

* Yesterday Rep. Michael McCaul speculated that not too many US communities would want them right now, however Texas, his home state tops the list.  Here are the cities in Texas which ‘welcomed’ Syrians:

Austin (4)

Dallas (31)

Ft. Worth (38)

Houston (34)

*One might assume that we were saving the Christian Syrians, but that isn’t happening.  Just as we reported earlier in the month, 92% of those we are bringing in are Muslims.  Here is the breakdown:

 777 of them identify as one form of Muslim or another (729 are Sunni Muslims)

 42 Christians are listed and 1 Catholic, several other religions or no religion are listed (for example, there is 1 Yazidi)

That works out to 92% Muslim!

By the way, if you are saying to yourself, heck, there are more Syrians in my town than this small number, remember that there are other legal avenues for entry.  Syrians already in the US were granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS) in 2012 by the Obama Administration and a reader recently shared with me that his US Senator says there are over 11,000 Syrians (who were already in the country when the conflict began) and are thus eligible for TPS.

By the way, it was our usual suspects, the US State Department resettlement contractors who lobbied, along with Arab groups, for the TPS designation.

Those same contractors want us to take 65,000 Syrians by the end of 2016 and the UNHCR has 11,000 picked out for us this year.

36,144 refugees admitted to US in first seven months of FY2015 (fiscal year)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2015

Look at this cool map I found for how many refugees were resettled in your state relative to your population: “This map by Casey Cupp is warped to show which states take on the highest number of refugees relative to their population. For example, the densely populated New Jersey takes in a far lower rate of refugees than that of the two Dakotas. What the map shows is that the distribution of refugees looks very different when considering state populations as opposed to strictly the number of people living in each state.” http://www.humanosphere.org/basics/2014/02/map-day-refugees-accepted-us-states-population-adjusted/

I was just having a look at the statistics for FY2015 maintained by the US State Department on refugee admissions (I was checking out Malta), but thought you might like to know which groups we are admitting (welcoming!) in the largest numbers.

The total number of refugees admitted so far in FY2015 (which ends on September 30th) is 36,144 from 80 countries. (Making sure we get lots and lots of diversity for your school systems to cope with!)

Here are the top ten in descending order:

Burma (9,040)

Iraq (8,229)

Somalia (4,993)

DR Congo (2,921)

Bhutan/Nepal (2,849)

Iran (1,474)

Cuba (1,093)

Ukraine (831)

Eritrea (801)

Syria (651)

Tip for using the data base Do not use the map for “processing country” because that tells you nothing about who we actually admitted.  For example, you will see that Kenya (on the processing country map) is listed as 1,537.  That does not mean that we admitted 1,537 Kenyans (we don’t take Kenyans as refugees, unless they are Obama relatives).  It means that 1,537 were processed in Kenya and those most likely are Somalis from the UN camps located in Kenya.

States which received over 1000 refugees in the last seven months (in descending order):

Texas (3,865)

California (2,974)

New York (2,008)

Michigan (1,696)

Arizona (1,667)

Ohio (1,591)

Washington (1,464)

Georgia (1,410)

Pennsylvania (1,384)

Illinois (1,383)

Florida (1,381)

Minnesota (1,250)   562 of those are new Somalis!

North Caroina (1,211)

For future reference, this post is archived in our ‘where to find information’ category and in our ‘refugee statistics’ category.

For wannabe researchers, this data base (where I got the above numbers) is only for the present fiscal year.  To go to a more extensive data base going back to 2002, go here.

1.6 million green cards issued to immigrants from Muslim countries; refugees in the mix

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 12, 2015

This is a gem.  Thanks to Conservative Review and investigator/writer Daniel Horowitz for pulling these numbers together in an easy to see graphic form.  See the whole story here.   Horowitz mentions refugees as part of the flow.  (hat tip: Dick):

 

 

There is one caveat we need to mention and that is that not all of those entering the US from countries such as Iraq or Iran are Muslims, but we do get at least a ball park number from this data.   Also, we do not take refugees from all of those countries listed above which reminds us that there are other LEGAL immigration programs admitting Muslim immigrants into the US.  The next step is to identify all of those methods of entry.

Kenya: UNHCR out! Somalis out!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 15, 2015

Update April 16th: Lutherans and Catholics squabble about whether it’s a good idea or not to close Dadaab, here.

In the wake of that horrific attack by al-Shabaab at Easter where over 100 Christians were slaughtered by Somalis, the Kenyan government wants the massive camp (where we get a large number of the US-bound Somalis from!) closed.

They are also planning a border wall with Somalia!

Close the camp! The US is accepting refugees from this massive UNHCR camp, Dadaab, in Kenya which the Kenyan government now wants closed in order to move the Somalis and the UN out of Kenya!

From AP (hat tip: Joanne).  The UNHCR has three months to get out!

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The United Nations High Commission for Refugees has three months to close a refugee camp in eastern Kenya and send the more than 400,000 Somalis living there back to their country or else the Kenyan government will relocate them, Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto has said.

The Kenyan government says the Dadaab refugee camp in eastern Kenya has become a recruitment center for the extremist group al-Shabab whose gunmen last week killed 148 people at the country’s Garissa College University. Ruto said in a rally on Saturday that Kenya must be secured at all costs.

Garissa is our 9/11:

“We have asked the UNHCR to relocate the refugees in three months, failure to which we shall relocate them ourselves. The way America changed after 9/11 is the way Kenya will change after Garissa,” Ruto said in a statement distributed by his press office.  [Only problem is that our lesson was short-lived!—ed]

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta vowed a sharp response to last week’s attack at the university. Kenyan warplanes attacked suspected militant positions in Somalia, and the government said Wednesday that it was freezing accounts of organizations and individuals suspected of financing Islamic extremists.

Earlier in the week, the Kenyan government broke ground on a border wall with Somalia.  Learn more here.

UN choosing refugees for us from UN camps in Kenya!

A large number of our new US Somali refugees come from the UNHCR camps in Kenya.   We don’t take Kenyans as refugees so when you visit the State Department data and see that 1,424 refugees were processed into the US from Kenya from October 1, 2014 until April 6, 2015 (a little over 6 months!) know that they are largely Somalis the UN has chosen for us!

We have admitted to the US in that same time period a total of 4,425 Somalis picked up around the world!  (See data here) That means we will surely surpass 9,000 new Somalis in the US by the end of the fiscal year on September 30th.

If the FBI says we can’t screen the Syrians, how on earth are we screening the Somalis?

Editor:  This is our 4th stop around the world this morning.  See Australia, South Africa, Spain and now Kenya.

682 Syrians admitted to US so far, seeded throughout America, 90% are Muslims

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 4, 2015

Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration, Anne C. Richard, is traveling and making some news on the Syrian refugee resettlement plan.

Asst. Sec. of State Richard and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees socialist, Antonio Guterres. The UN has selected 11,000 (90% Muslim) Syrian refugees for the US!

But, there is nothing much new here.  Nevertheless readers, especially new readers, need to know that this is a very very low number compared to what the Obama State Department wanted for this year and you can bet there is much gnashing of teeth going on in the contractor community which wanted 12,000-15,000 THIS year.

The main reason the Syrians are not yet on the way big time is that the FBI can’t get them screened for security.

Do not forget that the contractors have recently begun lobbying to raise the ceiling for all refugees arriving in the US from 70,000 set by Obama last September to possibly 100,000.

From Channel News Asia:

BEIRUT: The United States has admitted 648***refugees from Syria’s civil war and expects to allow in several thousand more, a U.S. official said on Thursday.

The 648 had been selected from 11,000 cases referred to the United States by the United Nations refugee agency, said Assistant Secretary of State Anne Richard.  [By the way, by creating this backlog of referred cases the UN puts pressure on the US to get moving!—ed]

[….]

Richard said it took the United States one or two years to process each refugee case, with checks that included security and medical assessments as well as analysis of whether individuals were at risk of persecution or death.

“I think that the numbers will go up, I know we are expecting to bring 1,000-2,000 to the U.S. by the end of September and several thousand next year,” she said.

Look at this next line!  They are blaming the slowdown on the Republicans when it is Obama’s own FBI that is the hold-up (thankfully!):

The Republican-led House Committee on Homeland Security has criticised the programme, saying the United States lacks the resources to fully investigate the backgrounds of refugees from Syria, where Islamic State militants and other hardline groups are active.

Richard said it was clearly not the intention of the programme to allow in militants.

“The people that we seek to bring are those who have severe medical conditions, widows and orphans,” she said. “These are very vulnerable cases and these are the ones that we are particularly focused on.”  [These are very expensive refugees—ed]

So, to which states have the Syrians been distributed so far?  

We checked the State Department data bases beginning in early 2012 to the first of April and here is what we learned:

***The number is actually 682 (as of 4/1/2015).

617 are Muslims and 65 are from other religions.  The vast majority are Sunni Muslims.  That makes the Muslim refugees 90% of the flow which is what we have been predicting because the UN is picking our refugees!   I expect that percentage to hold into the future.

Here is where they went (top five states in red):

Arizona (33)

Arkansas (1)

California (87)

Colorado (8)

Connecticut (3)

Florida (30)

Georgia (19)

Idaho (13)

Illinois (70)

Indiana (25)

Kansas (5)

Kentucky (5)

Maine (1)

Maryland (26)

Massachusetts (28)

Missouri (6)

Nevada (7)

New Hampshire (3)

New Jersey (31)

New Mexico (6)

New York (8)

North Carolina (34)

Ohio (15)

Oregon (1)

Pennsylvania (42)

Tennessee (17)

Texas (86)

Utah (12)

Virginia (16)

Washington (22)

West Virginia (1)

Wisconsin (1)

 Click here for what is now a massive archive on ‘Syrian refugees.’

Endnote:  I can’t impress upon readers enough that this Syrian Muslim pipeline has to be slowed. And, in fact, there is absolutely no justification for the huge flows of Iraqi and Somali Muslims to the US either!

Top languages spoken by refugees admitted to the US—Arabic is #1

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 1, 2015

Although I have posted on this before, for all of our new readers, here it is again.  This is from the Refugee Processing Center which is the US State Department’s data collection site for refugee information.

Just remember!  When your town “welcomes” refugees, you will receive refugees from many places. You cannot choose your refugees by saying, only send me the nice Christians from Burma or the Congo, for example.

And, since the Clinton Executive order (which Bush refused to rescind), your local and state government (you, the taxpayer) are responsible for supplying translators for all sorts of problems that crop up in schools, health departments, hospitals, the criminal justice system and anywhere else federal money is involved.

Translation services are becoming one of the most significant (and costly) cottage industries orbiting within the refugee resettlement industry.

Here are the top ten languages spoken by refugees entering the US (from Fiscal Year 2008 to the end of the first quarter of FY 2015 (December 31, 2014))

    Arrivals
Rank Native Language FY 2008 FY 2009 FY 2010 FY 2011 FY 2012 FY 2013 FY 2014 FY 2015 Cumulative Total
1 Arabic 9,767 13,675 15,199 7,372 9,938 17,230 17,859 4,430 95,470
2 Nepali 5,302 13,450 12,355 14,993 15,114 9,164 8,484 1,304 80,166
3 Sgaw Karen 7,460 3,331 5,833 6,521 4,148 5,011 4,115 1,046 37,465
4 Somali 2,402 3,879 4,787 3,057 4,763 7,295 8,449 2,664 37,296
5 Spanish 4,247 4,831 4,951 2,976 2,075 4,429 4,305 778 28,592
6 Chaldean 2,897 3,783 2,550 1,392 1,790 1,954 1,328 204 15,898
7 Burmese 3,769 2,040 1,414 1,290 1,146 1,523 1,066 233 12,481
8 Armenian 3,625 3,444 1,798 747 387 875 1,190 263 12,329
9 Kayah 0 5,267 1,922 1,179 595 784 637 136 10,520
10 Other Minor Languages 1,788 1,913 1,667 673 1,006 1,277 1,124 242 9,690
  Total 41,257 55,613 52,476 40,200 40,962 49,542 48,557 11,300

339,907

 

Do you see that low Somali number for 2008, that is the year that the US State Department shut down the Somali family reunification program when they discovered wide spread fraud—-Somalis were lying on their applications and found not to be related at all to those they claimed were kin.  Surprised?  You shouldn’t be!

US immigrant population reaches record level

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 24, 2015

I was looking for something else and came across this informative article at the Migration Policy Institute (MPI).  I’ve written critically, here in 2011, about MPI which advances an Open borders agenda sandwiched between articles like this one entitled: ‘Frequently Requested Statistics on Immigrants and Immigration in the United States.’  I assume their statistics are accurate. Check it out!

Building the Democratic Party voter base!

Table 1: Numerical Size and Share of the Foreign-Born Population in the United States, 1970-2013

Source: Migration Policy Institute tabulation of data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2010 and 2013 American Community Surveys, and 1970-2000 decennial Census data.

 

 

They have another report with just Refugee and Asylee data updated last year, here.

How many refugees did your state “welcome” in FY2014? Where were they from?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 16, 2015

Sorry readers, after being away from the computer these last three days, I am woefully behind—lots of stories have passed me by.  Going to try to catch up!

If this looks familiar it is! But, we have so many new readers it bears repeating.

Just before I left, reader P.K. sent me this link for data at the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement that I hadn’t seen in such a handy fashion.  We did previously give a year-end wrap-up last October here where the numbers were slightly different, but close.

We are repeating this news for the many new readers who have joined us since then.

By the way, although we resettled 69,986 refugees in FY2014, that is not the complete story.  The Office of Refugee Resettlement was responsible for over 30,000 asylees and another 58,000 ‘unaccompanied alien children’ being treated as refugees as well  (and, cared for with your tax dollars!)

Top resettlement states for FY 2014 are as follows:

Texas (7,214) Turning red states blue? Someone needs to tell Ted!

California (6,108)

New York (4,082)

Michigan (4,006)

Florida (3,519)

Arizona (2,964)

Ohio (2,815)

Pennsylvania (2,739)

Georgia (2,694)

Illinois (2,578)

Also three other states topped 2,000:  Washington (2,483), North Carolina (2,443) and Minnesota (2,232).

Be sure to visit the Office of Refugee Resettlement here to see where in the world your refugees came from.

What is a fiscal year?  For the purposes of refugee resettlement, a fiscal year runs from October 1 of the previous year to September 30th of the present year.  So, that means we have now completed 5 months of fiscal year 2015.
