OK everyone take a breath! The numbers are getting a bit wild!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 16, 2015

I’ve been out all day but have had a chance to listen to talk radio inbetween other things (there is life away from the computer!) and some of the numbers I’m hearing talked about are just crazy—the craziest number I heard was Trump saying Obama wanted 250,000 Syrians in the US in the next year or so.  Now, perhaps deep down Obama would like nothing better, but he hasn’t said that yet!

Please consider that although this issue is extremely important, it is also important to be factual in our criticism.

And, just a reminder this has been going on for 35 YEARS through Republican and Democrat administrations.  It didn’t start last month or the month before that!

By the way, if you seriously want to know what Obama is looking for this year, read his State Department’s PROPOSED REFUGEE ADMISSIONS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2016 REPORT TO THE CONGRESS, by clicking here.

He is vastly underestimating the $1.2 billion price tag, but presumably Congress will be wrangling with him over that (Senator Lindsey Graham and Patrick Leahy want to add ONE billion to get more Syrians in here!)


Just a brief overview of where the numbers I’m hearing come from (in addition to the 65,000 the Jihad Caucus asked for and we reported on in the above June 2015 Youtube clip):

~70,000 is the number of refugees the Obama Administration has been proposing for resettlement in recent years, and they have been coming close to that (that is for refugees from all over the world).

~85,000 is the number of refugees he has proposed for FY2016 (from all countries). He said he would propose 100,000 for FY2017 which would be his last opportunity to set the ceiling, but he can’t and won’t do that until September 2016.

~10,000 of the 85,000 is earmarked for Syrians for FY 2016.  10,000 are not being sent to Louisiana.

We have brought around 2,000 Syrians since the civil war began (but I will next be rechecking that number)

~65,000 Syrians is a number that was initially proposed by the federal resettlement contractors (aka volags) earlier this year (and that was after an earlier proposal to bring in 15,000 for each of five years, which we reported here in 2014).  They wanted the 65,000 relocated here before Obama leaves office.

~65,000 Syrians is also the number 14 Democrat Senators*** (we called them the ‘Jihad Caucus’) proposed bringing in before Obama leaves office.

~100,000 Syrians is now the number being proposed by the refugee resettlement contractors.  They want them here before Obama leaves office.

~250,000 Syrians is what Pres. candidate Trump says Obama wants. ***Update*** a reader sends this, it is Hannity who was talking about 250,000 first.  See how Hannity gets to that number, here.

If anyone wants links for any of the numbers I’ve mentioned, please ask, because I don’t have the energy to put them all in here.

*** These are the 14 members of the Senate Jihad Caucus who last May (at the behest of the resettlement contractors) sent a letter to Obama indicating that 65,000 Syrians was a good number:

Dick Durban (D-IL)

Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)

Al Franken (D-MN)

Patrick Leahy (D-VT)

Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)

Patty Murray (D-WA)

Robert Menendez (D-NJ)

Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)

Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)

Christopher Coons (D-DE)  LOL! Delaware hasn’t taken a refugee in a couple of years!

Tim Kaine (D-VA)

Edward Markey (D-MA)

Sherrod Brown (D-OH)

Mazie Hirono (D-HI)  LOL! Last I looked Hawaii took a whole 7 refugees last year!

I hope that helps clear up some confusion.  Let me know if more numbers are being bandied about so we can run those down too!

UN Dispatch: Top 4 countries in the world for refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 9, 2015

From the UN Dispatch last week:

What makes a country a ‘good’ country for refugee resettlement, fairly assuming their burden in the global community? Here are four countries on three continents that both quantitatively and qualitatively stand out.


Antonio Guterres has been the UN High Commissioner for Refugees for almost ten years. While he nags the western world (and particularly the US!) to take ever greater numbers of refugees, he hasn’t been able to persuade the country he once led as its Prime Minister to take more than a handful each year. In 2014 we learn Portugal took a whole 14 refugees!

With as many refugees arriving in Europe last month than all of last year, this question of where they can and should resettle is all the more urgent.What makes a country a ‘good’ country for refugee resettlement, fairly assuming their burden in the global community? Here are four countries on three continents that both quantitatively and qualitatively stand out.

With as many refugees arriving in Europe last month than all of last year, this question of where they can and should resettle is all the more urgent.

The UN goes on to say that the top 4 countries are (drum roll!):



United States 


Continue reading here to see the rationale.

US took 67% of the refugees resettled around the world in 2014!

If you haven’t yet had a chance to look at the State Department’s report on the Proposed Refugee Admissions for FY2016, I highly recommend it (as a matter of fact, I have to stop posting now so I have some time today to continue studying it).

In the report we learn that the US aims to take 50% of the refugees referred by the UN each year, but what a surprise, in calendar year 2014 (Table VIII p. 70) we took 67% which was 48,911 refugees!

Germany took 3,467 (4.7% of the total resettled)

Sweden took 1,497 (2.1%)

Brazil took 44 (.06%)

And, just for fun!  The UNHCR Antonio Guterres is the former Prime Minister of Portugal and that country took 14 refugees in 2014!  So he couldn’t convince his own home country to WELCOME more?  (Portugal has promised to take 23 Syrians!)

Asylum scammers: fake passport business booming

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 2, 2015

That’s what the Wall Street Journal is reporting, thanks to Jeff for sending the story.

The ‘stars’ of the WSJ piece landed in the UK, but I wonder how many are landing at an airport near you as we speak?

ISTANBUL—Somewhere over Europe, Kassem went to the airplane’s bathroom and flushed his fake Italian passport down the toilet.

When he landed in London’s Heathrow Airport a few hours later, Kassem presented his Syrian ID to U.K. immigration officials and requested asylum. The trip wouldn’t have been possible using his actual, Syrian passport—the country’s four-year civil war has turned it into a burden for anyone fleeing the conflict.

When asked where his passport was, Kassem told the officials: “It’s in the toilet.”

While hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees make the dangerous sea voyage to Europe followed by arduous treks across the continent, some of their countrymen have used fraudulent Western passports to board planes to countries where they can request asylum. Winter’s approach, turning seas colder, stormier and more dangerous, is expected to increase the practice.

Continue reading here.

This chart shows how many successful asylum cases were processed in 2013 in the US.  Source: Migration Policy Institute. (I would love to know what countries are represented in that 7,776 (30%) from “other countries,” wouldn’t you?)

asylum US


For new readers the difference between refugees and asylum seekers is that we fly the refugees in after the UN selects them for us and asylum seekers get in on their own steam—either illegally across a border or come legally on another type of visa—then ask for asylum, claiming they will be persecuted if returned to their homeland. Once granted asylum however, the asylum seekers get all of the same welfare goodies that refugees receive.

Did your state get Somalis in October? Minnesota number one destination!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 31, 2015

That Minnesota is the state receiving the most Somalis is no surprise as the US State Department and its contractors work to help create the new Somalia in Minnesota.

Since I was checking numbers this morning, see Syrian refugees in previous post, I thought I might check Somalis too.  (Of course all Somalis are Muslims, or almost all of them.)

595 in the month of October were distributed around the US.

Go here to see how many Somalis we have admitted since the mid 1980s and ask why the heck are we still bringing them in here?

And, go here to see where I’m getting this data.

map Somalis Oct



Here are the top ten states for Somali resettlement for the first month of FY2016 (some numbers aren’t clear on the map):

Minnesota (80)

Arizona (73)

New York (51)

Texas (47)

Ohio (42)

Massachusetts (31)

Pennsylvania (29)

Kentucky (27)

Missouri (25)

Washington (23)

Minnesota pay attention!

Then I decided to check where they went in Minnesota in the last 4 weeks and the numbers surprised me (I think it will surprise Minnesotans more!).  It was only two weeks ago that Minnesota Governor Dayton caused a stir when he said if you don’t like the Somali migration to Minnesota, find another state in which to live!  BTW, infidel Dayton won’t have a political future in the state once the Muslim population reaches a certain level.

Of the 80 who were placed in Minnesota in the last 4 weeks, here (below) is where they went. If 80 (or so) continue to be resettled in MN this year (FY2016), the state will see another nearly 1,000 needy Somalis arrive from Africa and elsewhere in the world (in addition to 1,000-2,000 secondary Somali migrants from other parts of the US that regularly arrive in MN as part of the colonization of the state).

Mankato (1)

Marshall (4)

Minneapolis (33)

Richfield (1)

Rochester (1)

Saint Cloud (32)

St. Paul (1)

Willmar (7)

Meanwhile the UNHCR is returning Somalis to Somalia from camps in Kenya, so why do we still have to bring them here?

US State Department Presidential Determination report for FY2016 is available on-line

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 24, 2015


Obviously Sec. of State Kerry didn’t give a hoot that he was sending the report to the House and Senate Judiciary committees in a timely manner or not!

This is one of the most useful documents researchers and resisters can use to fully understand what the Obama Administration has planned for FY2016 for resettling refugees to your towns and cities.

I haven’t looked at it closely yet, but if you have time on your hands over the weekend, you might want to start digging in.

The document is required to be sent to Congress before the start of the fiscal year, but each year the State Department just squeaks it in at the deadline thus giving the House and Senate Judiciary committees virtually no time to examine it before the fiscal year begins.  (Ha! Assuming they have ever wanted to examine it!)

There has been no meaningful consultation for 20 years or more!  Calling the House Judiciary Committee—-we are still waiting!

This one is here and it is dated October 1, 2015!

Will your town/city get Syrian refugees? Have you gotten them already?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 22, 2015

Yesterday, someone sent me a link to a news story that reported that some small town in Michigan was going to ‘welcome’ 4,500 Syrians in the coming year.  Sounded preposterous to me, but it did spur me on to do something I’ve wanted to do for the last week and that is find out exactly what towns and cities were already getting Syrian refugees.

Refugees and migrants arrive onboard the Eleftherios Venizelos passenger ship at the port of Piraeus, near Athens, Greece September 7, 2015. REUTERS/Alkis Konstantinidis

Here they come! Funny thing is that this photo of Syrians arriving in Europe accompanies a story about New York City Mayor De Blasio cool to resettlement in NYC! Wow! Go figure!

Knowing that once they got the initial “seeds” planted (seed is the word being used by Welcoming America), I know that they often then continue to pour them in.  So I went back to the State Department’s data base (the Refugee Processing Center) to see where the mostly Muslim Syrians have been distributed so far.

However, if your city is not on the list below it does not mean that you are off the hook.

Go to the US State Department’s list of subcontractors working in 190 towns and cities, here, to see if you have a US State Department contractor set up in your town.

I would also urge all of you to go to the contact information for an office near you (in that list ) and ask for the Fiscal Year 2016 Abstract.

Those abstracts will tell you how many refugees the agency plans to resettle, from where they will come, and what your town is offering them in the way of social services and other amenities.

The FY2016 Abstracts are now in the hands of the US State Department which has already made its decisions (or how else would Sec. of State Kerry be able to say that we can handle 85,000 refugees this coming year) and the contractor should not be withholding them on some flimsy grounds that they are somehow still in the decision-making process.  Do not be surprised, however, if they refuse to give you the abstract because secrecy is a watchword of this program and has been for decades!

I can’t emphasize enough that if they can’t find enough ‘welcoming’ locations, they will be out scouting for more unsuspecting towns.

‘Pockets of Resistance’ are forming and if you would like to be linked up with fellow concerned citizens, sign up here at the Center for Security Policy and someone will be in touch with you.

1,709 Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees have been resettled in the US between 1/1/2012 and yesterday.

95% are Muslims

When I looked up the cities where they were distributed, I rechecked the numbers of Muslims vs. Christians we were resettling and the percentage is still about the same—95% since 2012 are (Sunni) Muslims and 97% in calendar year 2015 are Muslims. And, that is because we allow the United Nations to choose our refugees!

Here then are the towns/cities where those 1,709 Syrians have been resettled (some may only have received one Syrian so far, but that one should be considered a seed).  Someone got these few:  43 Christians, 1 Catholic and 1 Yazidi resettled so far. Again, we are not saving the persecuted Christians in any significant way!

Top Syrian Muslim receiving states are in red.

Arizona (Glendale, Phoenix, Tucson)

Arkansas (Springdale)

California (Burbank, Chatsworth, El Cajon, Fair Oaks, Los Angeles, Modesto, Moorpark, Oakland, Pasadena, Plumas Lake,             Sacramento, Salinas, San Diego, Santa Ana, Turlock, Van Nuys, Walnut Creek, West Covina)

Colorado (Colorado Springs, Denver)

Utah (Salt Lake City)

Virginia (Burke, Centreville, Charlottesville, Falls Church, Newport News, Roanoke)

Washington (Richland, Seattle, Spokane, Vancouver)

West Virginia (Charleston)

And again, please cross check with this list where the refugee contractors are working!  They can actually place refugees within a hundred miles of their offices!

CIS: Welfare Use High for Both Legal and Illegal Immigrants

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 10, 2015

 49% for Legal Households, 62% for Illegals

Here is the complete Center for Immigration Studies press release:

WASHINGTON, DC (September 10, 2015) — Low levels of education — not legal status — are the main reason immigrant welfare use is high, according to a new report by the Center for Immigration Studies. The report estimates welfare use separately for legal and illegal immigrant households based on Census Bureau data, and is a companion to the Center’s study released last week examining all immigrant households. The new analysis shows that legal immigrant households make extensive use of most welfare programs, while illegal immigrant households primarily benefit from food programs and Medicaid through U.S.-born children.

“Welfare use by illegal immigrant households is certainly a concern, but the bigger issue is welfare use by legal immigrants,” said Steven Camarota, the Center’s Director of Research and author of the report. “Three-fourths of immigrant households using welfare are headed by legal immigrants. Legal immigration is supposed to benefit the country, yet so many legal immigrants are not able to support themselves or their children. This raises important questions about the selection criteria used for legal immigration.”


View the entire report at:

Among the findings:

~An estimated 49 percent of households headed by legal immigrants used one or more welfare programs in 2012, compared to 30 percent of households headed by natives.

~Households headed by legal immigrants have higher use rates than native households overall and for cash programs (14 percent vs. 10 percent), food programs (36 percent vs. 22 percent), and Medicaid (39 percent vs. 23 percent). Use of housing programs is similar.

~Legal immigrant households account for three-quarters of all immigrant households accessing one or more welfare programs.

~Of legal immigrant households with children, 72 percent access one or more welfare programs, compared to 52 percent of native households.

~Of households headed by immigrants in the country illegally, we estimate that 62 percent used one or more welfare programs in 2012, compared to 30 percent of native households.

~Households headed by immigrants illegally in the country have higher use rates than native households overall and for food programs (57 percent vs. 22 percent) and Medicaid (51 percent vs. 23 percent). Use of cash programs by illegal immigrants is lower than use by natives (5 percent vs. 10 percent), as is use of housing programs (4 percent vs. 6 percent).

~Of illegal immigrant households with children, 87 percent access one or more welfare programs, compared to 52 percent of native households.

~There is a worker present in 85 percent of legal immigrant-headed households and 95 percent of illegal immigrant-headed households. But while most immigrant households have a worker, many are less-educated, earn low wages, and are thus eligible for welfare.

~Education level plays a larger role in explaining welfare use than legal status. The most extensive use of welfare is by less-educated immigrants who are in the country legally. Of households headed by legal immigrants without a high school diploma, 75 percent use one or more welfare programs, as do 64 percent of households headed by legal immigrants with only a high school education.

~The overwhelming majority of illegal immigrants have modest levels of education; therefore, the high use of welfare associated with less-educated legal immigrants indicates that legalization would likely increase welfare costs, particularly for cash and housing programs.

~Restrictions on new legal immigrants’ access to welfare have not prevented them from accessing programs at high rates because restrictions often apply to only a modest share of immigrants at any one time. Some programs are not restricted, there are numerous exceptions and exemptions, and some provisions are entirely unenforced. Equally important, immigrants, including those illegally in the country, can receive welfare on behalf of their U.S.-born children.

# # #

Be sure to see CIS’s previous announcement about how immigrants of all kinds use welfare at a higher rate than native born Americans.


For readers who are researching the Refugee Resettlement Program, go here for annual reports to Congress which contain information about welfare use by refugees.

In the most recent year (2013) available, note that on page 101, refugees are using public assistance at a much higher rate than other LEGAL immigrants shown in the table above.  Remember it is the contractor’s job to get their ‘clients’ (refugees) signed up for “services.”  Refugees thus benefit to a greater degree than other legal immigrants partly because you pay a supposed non-profit to guide them through the process of signing them up for their welfare benefits.

21% of refugees are using SSI

56% are using Medicaid

74% are getting food stamps (SNAP)

23% are in public housing or subsidized housing

This post is filed in our categories where to find information and ‘refugee statistics.’

Oops!  Forgot to mention that the whole premise of the Refugee Act of 1980 (Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden) was that refugees were to be self-sufficient very quickly, they were not meant to be a burden on the taxpayer—so much for that promise!

UNHCR data confirms it: 75% of the so-called refugees arriving in Europe are MEN

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 7, 2015

Invasion of Europe news….

***Update*** November 17: this was a screenshot of the UNHCR percentages of men as of this date.  One of our lurkers has suggested we lied.  The percentage has fluctuated over time.

graph 75% men

We mentioned recently that it appears from some photos that the invaders of Europe are mostly fighting age young men.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees does not tell us their ages, but does tell us that 75% are men. (Germans hide your daughters!)

Only 51% are Syrians, the rest are from all over the Middle East and Africa.

So, did the men abandon their women and children back home (in an unsafe country)?  What sort of men are these?

See the numbers from the horse’s mouth, here.  Hat tip: Mark

97% of Syrian refugees admitted to US in 2015 are Muslims

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 3, 2015

We have been reporting from time to time the number of Syrian refugees admitted to the US.  You know that the resettlement contractors and the Senate Jihad Caucus are looking for the US to resettle 65,000 before Obama leaves office.


Ted Cruz fans! It is time to ask your man where he stands on refugees. Texas is the number one resettlement state in the Nation and is receiving the most Syrian Muslims at this time. Where is he? ***Update*** Cruz makes his position very clear, here on September 24th:

Using US State Department figures going back to January 1, 2012 we see that 1,487 Syrians have been admitted as of September 1 (a few days ago) and the vast majority (95%) are Muslims—Sunni Muslims.  However, if one only looks at the calendar year 2015, the percentage of Muslims jumps to 97%!  That is because the UN is telling us which refugees to take!

By the way there are 40-some Christians in that number and 1 Yazidi (and a few other religions, or no religion).

The 1,487 have been distributed to 36 states.

The top ten states receiving mostly Sunni Muslim Syrians since 1/1/2012 are as follows (as of today):

Texas (173)

California (162)

Michigan (146)

Illinois (120)

Arizona (107)

Florida (92)

Pennsylvania (76)

New Jersey (63)

Massachusetts (58)

Kentucky (55)

I’ll bet that one criteria used to determine where they have been sent is the number of mosques in the state.

Don’t forget that back in February the FBI testified before the House Homeland Security Committee that they could not adequately screen the Syrians for security.

For those readers just joining us today—PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION!

Watch for it!  This month Obama will be announcing how many Syrians he wants admitted to the US in 2016!  I’ll be watching what those Senators running for the Republican nomination for President will say as their states will be getting the bulk of the Syrians. Ted Cruz (TX), Rand Paul (KY), Chris Christie (NJ) and Marco Rubio (FL)—where are you?

Obama could use supposedly temporary ‘humanitarian’ parole to get more Syrians admitted to US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 6, 2015

I expect this dreadful news is because the UN/US State Department (and the resettlement contractors) are hopping mad at the slow screening process for those who have been submitted for consideration as permanent refugees.  I see parole as a way around serious security screening.

By the way, the percentage of Syrians entering as refugees (so far) still stands at about 94% Muslim for those being placed all over the country.  We are not saving the Christians in any big way!

Senator Dianne Feinstein

As a leading member of the Jihad Caucus, Senator Dianne Feinstein is happy to bring California more immigrants—Syrian Muslims this time!

Here is the latest news about possible parole for Syrians, from Breitbart (hat tip: Rosemary):

The Obama administration says it may reconsider the use of parole for certain Syrian nationals in addition to its Syrian refugee resettlement effort.

In written responses to Senate Judiciary Immigration and the National Interest Subcommittee Republicans obtained by Breitbart News, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services reveal that the U.S.’s effort to resettle thousands of Syrian refugees might not be the only process it will use to bring displaced Syrians to the U.S.

“At the request of more than 70 members of Congress in 2013, USCIS considered whether to establish a parole program for Syrians in Syria but decided that establishing such a program was not warranted. However, as the situation continues to evolve and USCIS continues to engage with stakeholders, USCIS may reconsider the use of parole for certain Syrian nationals,” USCIS wrote in its response to the subcommittee’s question probing whether USCIS is considering a parole program for Syrians.

The State Department has estimated that by the end of FY 2015 the U.S. will have admitted between 1,000-2,000 Syrian refugees. Parole for Syrians, if used, would supplement the refugee resettlement effort.

Parole is an immigration benefit that is intended to be imparted on a case-by-case basis for “urgent humanitarian reasons” or “significant public benefit” for those foreigners who would otherwise be ineligible for entry. It is intended to be a temporary admission, and parolees are expected to depart the U.S. once the reasons for their parole have ended.

More here….

Remember readers that the contractors started out pushing for 12,000-15,000 for this year, and now they and the Jihad Caucus in the Senate would like to see 65,000 as Obama’s parting gift to America.

So where are we?

Fiscal year 2015 ends in just short of 8 weeks (on September 30th) and in the calendar year of 2015 we have admitted 878.  Since the first of January 2012 (the year I arbitrarily chose as the beginning of the present Syrian conflict) we have admitted 1,213 Syrian refugees.   (See Refugee Processing Center data base, here)

Of those, 1,138 practice some form of Islam giving Muslims a 94% share of the total Syrians admitted so far.  I don’t expect that percentage to change much as long as we are taking the refugees chosen for us from UN camps.

Here are the top ten states receiving mostly Muslim Syrians so far as of August 1, 2015 (go here for our previous accounting). Red number is the number resettled as of the beginning of July.

Texas (146)    (137)

California (139)    (133)

Illinois (106)   (93)

Michigan (81)   (59)

Arizona (79)    (73)

Florida (70)    (60)

Pennsylvania (65)   (65)

New Jersey (58)   (39)

Massachusetts (47)   (44)

Tied for tenth place:

Kentucky (42)   (not recorded because not in the top ten in July)

North Carolina (42)   (42)

Go here to see the 14 Senators that comprise the Jihad Caucus pushing Obama to admit more Syrians.

I really think it would be only fair if all the Syrians were sent to the home states of the fourteen, don’t you?

However, ten of the 14 are not even getting Syrians in any large numbers, but four are getting their wish and their states are in the top ten:

Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)  Yippee I’m getting Syrian Muslims!

Dick Durban (D-IL) The leader of the pack is getting his share! Dropping them in Chicago because diversity will bring strength to that city!

Ed Markey (D-MA) I wonder how many will go to Markey’s home town.

Robert Menendez (D-NJ) The guy worried about the Iranians will have some Syrian Muslims in his home state.
