Pew has a good synopsis of where (how many) refugees were resettled in FY2016

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 7, 2016

Although we have covered many of these numbers, this is a handy synopsis of where most refugees went in FY2016 and what ethnic groups predominated.

See the story here.

We are now two months in to fiscal year 2017 and see here that our rate of admission will put us way beyond FY2016 levels if Trump doesn’t turn off the spigot on January 21, 2017.

First two months of FY2017, Somali ‘refugees’ entering US at highest rate ever!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 5, 2016

rpcLogoSmall [Converted]I mentioned this fact a few days ago here when I analyzed the first 6 weeks of FY17 (it began on October 1, 2016), but now the data is in for the first two full months.

You can’t make this up!

In light of the many Somalis who have been arrested and convicted on terrorism charges (here is the most recent case) and in light of two highly publicized cases of Somali youths we cared for on our taxpayer dime attempting to kill Americans since September in St. Cloud, MN and in Columbus, OH, we are admitting the highest weekly average of Somalis to the US that we have ever done in the last 30 years!

Using the data available to the public at Wrapsnet.org (Refugee Processing Center), we searched for the number of Somalis (virtually all Somalis are Muslims) admitted between October 1, 2016 and December 1, 2016 and this is what we found:

2,598 were admitted in the last two months. (More Somalis than Syrians, here).

And check out the top ten states which ‘welcomed’ them. (40 states got some number of Somalis, but large numbers will head to Minnesota and Ohio as soon as their initial resettlement funds run out.)

Top Ten states for Somali resettlement in the first two months of this fiscal year:

Minnesota (334)

New York (283)

Kentucky (169) It is new for KY to be anywhere near the top for resettlement, where are you Rand Paul?

Ohio (158)

Arizona (146)

Missouri (136)

Texas (133)

Washington (113)

Colorado (97)

Pennsylvania (89)

You might think the Obama Administration is working overtime to get this many in here before you know what!

By the way, I heard some mainstream news commentator say the other day that Washington, DC was third behind Minnesota and Ohio for Somali population.  It just isn’t so, there may be some in the DC area, but DC gets almost no refugees.

Note to the Donald Trump transition team: You can’t solve the problem if you only restrict entry to some Middle Eastern countries!  Although we pick up most of the Somalis from camps in Africa, we are admitting Somalis who have “made their way” to far flung corners of the world, including to Europe!

First two months of FY2017, 98% of Syrian refugees entering the US are Muslims

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 4, 2016

rpcLogoSmall [Converted]Continuing a trend on-going now for several years, the vast majority of Syrian refugees entering the US are Muslims. Of the 2,279 Syrians resettled in October and November, 2,225 are Muslim (2,188 of those are Sunnis). All data from Wrapsnet.org (Refugee Processing Center)

Here are the top ten states where they were distributed.  (15 states got none, so far)

Michigan (313)

California (256)

Pennsylvania (162)

Arizona (142)

Texas (135)

Ohio (116)

Maryland (112)

Georgia (109)

Florida (105)

New York (92)

What are the major Muslim ethnic groups entering the US right now through the RAP?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 3, 2016

rpcLogoSmall [Converted]Can Trump stop the flow this coming year, maybe, maybe not!

I was doing research at Wrapsnet (Refugee Processing Center) recently for another purpose and did a search on the major Muslim ethnic groups entering the US from Oct. 1, 2016 to Nov. 15, 2016 (approximately the first 6 weeks of FY2017).

The numbers below are only for Muslims in the top ten sending countries (all Muslim sects) that entered in that time frame (about 6 weeks) and only those who entered the US through the Refugee Admissions Program (RAP):

Somalia: 1,894

Syria: 1,867

Iraq: 1,388

Afghanistan: 298

Burma: 289

Sudan: 147

DR Congo: 141

Ethiopia: 118

Eritrea: 58

Iran: 56

 

This is the highest number of Somalis we have brought in since we began taking Somalis 30 years ago.

At this rate (315 weekly) we could have over 16,000 placed in a large number of states by September 30th. Go here to see my summary of how many Somalis we resettled through the RAP since the early 1980’s.  The highest previous year (2004) was 12,814 during the Bush Administration.

President-elect Trump needs to know that the Obama Admin. is pouring refugees in to the US at an unheard of rate in the first weeks of the fiscal year. Congress must cut their funding now to help Trump in January. Appropriating the extra billion or so the Administration says they need through March could tie Trump’s hands!

It is also 1,000 more in the first six weeks this year than it was last year at this time! Holy cow!  See here.

I maintain that the Somalis and many other Muslim ethnic groups cannot be screened any better than Syrians, especially the Somalis and the Burmese!

By the way, most of the Iranians we bring in are Christians or other religious minorities, but clearly we are bringing in Muslim Iranians. Why?

These numbers indicate that the feds and their contractors are pouring refugees in at an unsustainable rate!

We have admitted 14,568 total refugees of all persuasions in those approximately first 6 weeks.  That is a rate of about 2,428 a week. And at this rate we would admit 126,256 by September 30th when Obama’s wish for the year was (only, LOL!) 110,000.  (During Obama’s 8 years he admitted an average of about 70,000 a year, here.)

Just as we predicted, they are front-loading refugee admissions in advance of Trump’s Inauguration in January.

It is imperative that Congress NOT give the Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS) the over $1 BILLION extra in funding it wants right now. (See ‘Running out of money’)  The Obama Administration encouraged the ‘kids’ (with its policies) to come to the US and, if the budget must be re-prioritized for them, so be it. That means only one thing: cutting the resettled refugee numbers.

Where are you Wrapsnet?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 29, 2016

Update!  Good news! Just got word that it is up and running! Haven’t tried it yet, but blowing kisses to the State Department web designer!  Guess we will never know if it took a nudge or they just hadn’t gotten around to it yet!

An important resource for anyone (reporters, citizens, city and state officials) wanting more information about what refugees are being admitted to the US and where they are going is the Refugee Processing Center, a US State Department data base some refer to by its url wrapsnet.org.

By the way, I am mentioning this today because I can tell so many readers were trying to access this website from a link here at RRW yesterday when the latest Somali refugee terror attack was going down in Ohio. (I’ll report on that next this morning).

The site has a new warm and fuzzy face (here is a screenshot) which might, on first glance, make one think it is a website for a very pro-refugee activist group rather than simply a federal data base.

screenshot-74

Unfortunately what seems to be missing (hopefully this is just a delay in linking in the most important page in to the new website!) is the “interactive data” that is so vital for anyone wishing to track who is entering the country and from where (almost on a daily basis).

Here (below) is a screenshot this morning of the page that once contained links for various types of data. Perhaps if that data base is somewhere else on the site, some kind government employee will direct us to it! (or maybe there is a reader who knows how to access the data through some other area of the website!)

If the availability of this data has been temporarily suspended we urge the State Department to make it available soon since this is a critical period for anyone wishing to know where refugees are being placed.

Normally one was able to click on ‘reports’ in the right hand corner in the above screen shot and arrive at a page to research data. This is what has been appearing for days where the data selection parameters once were:

screenshot-75

***Update*** Also missing is this extremely important page that lists which contractors are working in which cities and states, here.

It will be things like this involving transparency with the Refugee Admissions Program we hope will be fixed early on by whomever Trump picks as his Secretary of State.

This post is filed in our ‘Where to find information’ category, a category full of reports, documents, and data. It contains 460 previous posts, so it is only for those who have a lot of time to peruse it!

For our newest readers whose heads might be spinning, my recommendation is to just follow along every day for awhile because I link back to so much earlier information and you will gradually catch on.

Next! The latest Somali refugee jihadist….

Turkey threatens to unleash millions of Syrian Muslims on Europe (again)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 27, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

The EU is between a rock and a hard place!

Remember Turkey is not our friend (Obama’s, but not ours)!

 

screenshot-71

Unrelated (sort of) to this story, I wanted you to see this data from the US State Department’s Refugee Processing Center because I want you to know that the three top countries through which we process refugees to the US are Kenya, TURKEY and Jordan. All three are processing in mostly Muslim refugees. Data for the month of October only. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B84u_jF_w2FMSTd4cUNwTXhpaUE/view

 

From the Irish Times:

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned the European Union that his country may wave through up to three million migrants to Europe as Ankara reacted furiously to Thursday’s vote in the European Parliament calling on Turkey’s accession negotiations to be frozen.

Mr Erdogan said that Turkey could row back on the migrant pact signed with the EU in March, which has dramatically reduced the number of refugees entering the EU through Turkey.

President Barack Obama, right, is greeted by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as German Chancellor Angela Merkel is seen in background, after posing for a family photo at the G-20 summit in Antalya, Turkey, Sunday, Nov. 15, 2015. U.S. President Barack Obama pledged Sunday to redouble U.S. efforts to eliminate the Islamic State group and end the Syrian civil war that has fueled its rise, denouncing the extremist group's horrifying terror spree in Paris as "an attack on the civilized world." (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)

Three kindred spirits changing the world order, undermining Western Civilization: President Barack Obama, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and German Chancellor Angela Merkel

As a condition of that deal, the EU promised to accelerate Turkey’s accession talks and consider granting visa-free access to Turkish citizens to Europe.

But concerns about the Turkish government’s increasingly authoritarian stance, as it clamps down on dissenters following July’s failed coup, has sparked calls for Turkey’s accession talks to be suspended.

Speaking in Istanbul on Friday, the Turkish president accused the EU of “betraying its promises”.

“If you go any further, these border gates will be opened,” he said, describing the parliament vote as a “dry threat”.

If Turkey opens its gates, I predict Erdogan should expect the so-called ‘anti-immigration’ parties to win big! So, his threat, if carried out will not help his case.

Elections are looming in a number of EU countries next year, including France, Germany and the Netherlands, with anti-immigration parties expected to poll strongly.

As a result, incumbent governments are unlikely to want to commit to granting 78 million Turkish people visa-free access to Europe.

More here.

Our ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive is here.

On the Refugee Processing Center where the US State Department keeps the data on who is coming in to the country through the RAP, we have found that important parts of the site are unavailable again and we hope it is only a Thanksgiving weekend anomaly. Notice how the new site has become an advocacy-oriented site.  This is the sort of thing a new Secretary of State must know about and be ready to change!

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.

Whoa! Big news! Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society to bring 50 Muslim Syrian families to Delaware

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 29, 2016

So, why is that a big deal?  HIAS resettles Muslims all the time.  That is not the big news!

Delaware has hardly taken any refugees in 36 years despite the fact that then Senator Joe Biden was one of the original architects of the Refugee Act of 1980 and observers have always suspected that Delaware has gotten so few because it was a case of ‘not in my back yard’ for good ol’ Uncle Joe.

joe-biden

As one of the few men still living responsible for the Refugee Act of 1980 (There were about a dozen Senators, Ted is dead, but Jimmy Carter is still kicking), thank VP Joe Biden for the demographic change in your state (but not in Delaware until now!).

Now here comes news that the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (see our huge archive here), one of nine federal resettlement contractors, has targeted Delaware for 50 FAMILIES according to the news from Delaware Public Media (that could be more than 200 refugees in total).

Although the article doesn’t say, we assume they would go to the Wilmington area where synagogues are lining up to help place the Syrians.  We already know that 98-99% of Syrians entering the US as refugees are Muslims and most of those are Sunni Muslims.

Here is the story at Delaware Public Media:

First State faith leaders and other community groups gathered Friday morning to learn more about a wave of Syrian refugees coming to Delaware as early as the end of the year.

About 50 Syrian families are slated to be resettled in the First State in December or January. [Planning has obviously gone on in secrecy because this plan is way down the pipeline and already approved at the US State Department. The big rush is that they want to beat a Trump Inauguration!—ed.]

Delaware’s Jewish Family Services agency is teaming up with HIAS – one of only nine organizations working with the U.S. State Department and the refugee resettlement program charged with placing refugees in the United States and abroad.

HIAS Senior Director of Communications Bill Swersey says this is the first time Syrian refugees are being resettled in Delaware, and adds the list of immediate needs for them is long.

Islamic Community is surely overjoyed!  Yes, because that means the Hijra is advancing into Delaware!

Several synagogues, non-profits and the Islamic Community of Delaware have already signed on to help. Delaware and Wyoming were the only two states not to have settled any Syrian refugees during the 2016 Fiscal year that ended Sept. 30th.

Urgent notice to Wyomingites!  They may have secret plans in the pipeline for you too!

LOL! This is why I seem to never get done (and it is a beautiful Saturday here), I read something that I know is wrong and I then have to find the facts.  I knew there were MORE than two states that did not get Syrian refugees, so I checked the Dept. of State data base.  Here is a map of where all the Syrian refugees were seeded in FY2016.

 

screenshot-56

Alaska and Hawaii didn’t get any either, they just didn’t fit on the map. I count 11 states that did not get Syrians! HIAS must be giving false information to make Delaware folks feel guilty.

 

 

Nervous in Delaware? Be sure to read ‘Ten things you need to know!’

For new readers, HIAS is the refugee contractor that told the Southern Poverty Law Center to investigate me, see here.

***We have heard that the US State Department has secretly targeted 47 new resettlement sites. And, that is because they have worn out their welcome in many locations, plus the numbers being admitted are so large that they need many more cities in which to seed them.  These are the ones we have identified so far.  We have now added Wilmington.

Asheville, NC

Rutland, VT

Reno, NV

Ithaca, NY

Missoula, MT

Aberdeen, SD (may have been thwarted!)

Charleston, WV

Fayetteville, AR

Blacksburg, VA

Pittsfield, MA

Northhampton, MA

Flint, MI

Bloomington, IN

Traverse City, MI

Poughkeepsie, NY

Wilmington, DE

Watertown, NY (maybe)

Youngstown, OH (maybe)

Where have all the Iraqis gone?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 25, 2016

I was doing some research on West Virginia just now and was interested to see how many Iraqis went to WV (a state that has been able to stay out of the Refugee Admissions Program to any large degree, but is now looking to get in) and so I had a look at the whole country and thought you might be interested in this information.

iraqi-terrorists-kentucky

When this Iraqi refugee terrorist pair was arrested in Kentucky in 2011, the flow of Iraqis slowed dramatically as the feds had to re-screen all of the incoming Iraqis. Their original screening of these two failed miserably.

I went back ten fiscal years and learned that in the last decade we admitted 135,648 Iraqi ‘refugees.’ Of those 63% are Muslims and the remaining 37% represent a whole host of religions (we are cleaning out the country of its minority population!) including Catholics, Christians and Chaldeans.

When I saw the breakdown of the Muslim numbers, it made me laugh.  Who is persecuting who because we have brought in large numbers of the two primary opposing factions!

We admitted:  34,679 Shiites, 48,297 Sunnis, and 2,116 Muslims of unknown orientation.  Are we placing them in the same towns so they can continue their infighting?  Are we placing Iraqi Christians among them? (The resettlement contractors must think that America’s magic melting pot will erase centuries of animosity—it won’t.)

Here is the map from the Refugee Processing Center of where the Iraqis have been placed. (There may be a way to find out which religions you got in your state, but I don’t know how to find that information. Knowing how the VOLAGs operate they probably sent you a smattering of all of them so you might have tensions in your community going forward.)

 

 

screenshot-53

Alaska got 49 and Hawaii 4 but they didn’t fit on the map. Source Refugee Processing Center http://www.wrapsnet.org/Reports/InteractiveReporting/tabid/393/Default.aspx

 

Here are the numbers resettled by fiscal year (again, I did not go back to the first wave of Iraqis who came in the wake of the first George Bush war).  One thing that you will see clearly is that once we get rolling and admit large populations of a particular ethnic group, we don’t stop for years and years (Somalis have been coming for decades).

FY 2007:  1,608  (This is the first year I began writing this blog and I remember well how the VOLAGs and the Open Borders gang were haranguing GWB to open the flood gates for Iraqis which he finally did. They said we broke Iraq so it was our responsibility to resettle vast numbers of their warring factions.)

FY 2008:  13,822

FY 2009:  18,838

FY 2010:  18,016

FY 2011:  9,388 (this dip is due to the discovery of 2 Iraqi Islamic terrorists in Kentucky, so the feds had to re-screen all the incoming Iraqis.)

FY 2012:  12,163

FY 2013: 19,488

FY 2014:  19,769

FY 2015:  12,676

FY 2016:  9,880

For more than you ever wanted to know, visit our Iraqi refugee category by clicking here (706 previous posts!).

Endnote:  LOL! This is how I get off track almost daily, I find something interesting to me and then don’t get to what I planned for the day. But, hopefully this is useful to some of you!

One more thing…. Don’t like what you see?  You only have 14 days (including today) to get a commitment from your member of Congress to DEFUND the Refugee Admissions Program in the lame duck session of Congress!  They won’t care what you think after November 8th!

Over 1,000 Syrians seeded throughout America in last 3 weeks; 99% Muslim

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2016

Apparently there is no effort being made to resettle more persecuted Christians from Syria than Obama did last year.

1,069 Syrians have been spread around America in the first three weeks of FY2017. That is 352 a week. 99% or 1,054 practice some form of Islam.  The vast majority are Sunni Muslims.

no-refugees-demonstration

There will most likely be 20,000 Syrian (99%) Muslim refugees admitted to the US by September 30, 2017, UNLESS Congress cuts the funding for the program next month!

There were 4 Catholics, 3 Christians and 8 Orthodox identified in the flow.

The top state receiving them was Michigan (by far!).

Here are the top ten receiving states:

Michigan (199)

California (104)

Arizona (68)

Maryland (63)

Pennsylvania (63)

Texas (62)

New York (60)

Ohio (50)

Indiana (42)

Georgia (42)

See the map from the Refugee Processing Center for the first 3 weeks of the fiscal year (30 states received Syrians so far, assuming I counted them correctly!):

screenshot-50

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 20,000 Syrians 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!
