Georgia mosque plan: Commissioner asks will it bring refugees here?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2016

Yes, it most likely could, mosques are part of the hijra (the migration), however a resettlement contractor spokeswoman quickly said, NO.  She doesn’t believe refugees can be successful in this county.

Hmmm! Wonder where all the new Muslims (enough for a big new mosque and cemetery) are coming from then?

Here is the news from AP at Fox News (is Fox calling CAIR a civil rights group in its headline?):

ATLANTA – A proposal to build a mosque and Muslim cemetery has so angered some residents of Newton County outside Atlanta that their commissioners have temporarily banned all building permit approvals for religious institutions.

Crownover: Newton County need not fear it will become a refugee magnet. Refugees could not be successful there she said. Photo: http://www.pointsoflight.org/blog/2014/10/10/how-dose-reality-made-me-leader

The moratorium prompted the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the NAACP to request a federal civil rights investigation in Newton County. A spokesman for U.S. Attorney John Horn confirmed receipt of this complaint Tuesday, but declined comment.

Mohammad Islam, the religious leader behind the proposal, said he doesn’t intend to take any legal action; instead, he met Tuesday with local leaders of other faiths in Newton County, seeking their support for a fresh start.

[….]

One commissioner questioned whether the project would make Newton County “a prime area for the federal government to resettle refugees from the Middle East” in an interview with The Rockdale Citizen, a local newspaper. Two public meetings were held, both crowded with angry opponents who clapped and cheered when people expressed fears about global terrorism.

[….]

But places like Newton County need not fear becoming magnets for refugees, said Amy Crownover, spokeswoman for New American Pathways. The organization is one of five refugee resettlement organizations in Georgia that are contracted with the federal government to assist refugees arriving in the United States.

“We work in partnership with communities, looking for communities where refugees can be successful,” which requires easy access to public transportation, jobs, English classes and other services. Newton County “isn’t an ideal setting,” Crownover said.

I’m wondering if she is implying the folks there are unwelcoming? But, of course, we know that hasn’t stopped the contractors in other locales.

Georgia has been a real hot bed of controversy and is one of the original pockets of resistance to the Refugee Admissions Program, click here for our Georgia archive.

NC Rep confirms it: The buck stops with him and others in Congress

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2016

I’m not sure that Rep. Mark Meadows’ goal in holding the town hall in the Ashville area last night was to direct his constituents right back to him and other members of Congress when it comes to stopping, slowing, or putting on steroids the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program, but that is what he did with these comments.

Meadows answers questions

Rep. Mark Meadows answers questions about refugee program in his district. Will he be one of the leaders to remove funding for refugee resettlement in funding battles this fall?

The President, Obama, can make determinations all he wants about how many refugees the US tax payer will pay for next year, but it is Congress that supplies the cold hard cash for the federal agencies (both the US State Department and the Dept. of Health and Human Services).

Bringing in large numbers of refugees obviously requires more money!

So, the question this fall will be this: Will Speaker Paul Ryan and the Republicans fully fund the Obama invasion or not?  It is that simple!

Here is the news about the town hall meeting.  The article doesn’t say it, but it sounds like most of those present OPPOSE more refugees for the US (and none for their community!).

FLAT ROCK, N.C. — Congressman Mark Meadows held a town hall Tuesday night to discuss efforts to resettle Syrian refugees in our area.

International Rescue Committee, a resettlement agency, said it is still looking at Asheville. Meadows said Saint James Episcopal Church in Hendersonville is backing off the idea, in part, because of the community reaction.

[….]

One man said the money was better spent on Americans. [A sentiment we hear everywhere.—ed]

“I just feel that we have enough people now that we have to take care of,” Tom Mcrary Jr., from Brevard, said.

Meadows explained the money for refugees comes from the U.S. State Department. Once the money is budgeted to the State Department, it cannot be moved to another department.

Well, Rep. Meadows don’t give it to the State Department this fall! The State Department doesn’t grow it on trees, you appropriate it to them!

Meadows informed the crowd refugee resettlement is a federal program, and state legislators cannot prevent refugees from coming. 

But, you can Mr. Meadows!  Will you?

See Refugee program is major issue for November election!  Your member of Congress is home right now (for the next two weeks) and every one of them is up for re-election.  Find them and ask them if they will be funding Obama’s invasion or not!

Trending? Connecticut resettlement contractor farming out refugee families

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2016

This may be happening already where you live, but this is the first time I’m seeing such a strategy.

A subcontractor of both Episcopal Migration Ministries and Church World Service (two of nine major contractors) in Connecticut is lining up towns to take refugee families, raise money for them and take over much of the responsibility for the family.

Blumenthal

Senator Blumenthal with the Connecticut Director of CAIR. We want Syrians resettled in CT!

I would really like to know if this is a new strategy for the federal contractors who are in fact doing a pretty lousy job of assimilating new refugees as the numbers keep rising beyond what they can handle. The article I’m posting (below) says there are 50 such arrangements in CT.

Connecticut politicians have made it very clear over the last year that the state is going to welcome as many Syrian Muslims as possible.  See this post from last fall where CT Senator Blumenthal announces that he wants to see a reduction in screening time for Syrians (he got his wish since the Obama Administration did indeed reduce the normal 18 months or more down to 3 months to get his 10,000 Syrian Sunnis here by the end of September).

Here is the news item that caught my eye this morning at the Hamlet Hub. Mark your calendars:

In response to the global refugee crisis, a group of area residents has applied to sponsor a refugee family in Ridgefield in partnership with Integrated Immigration and Refugee Services (IRIS), a non-profit agency that has been resettling refugees in Connecticut for over 30 years. This local group, the Refugee Resettlement Committee—Ridgefield (RRCR), will host an information session for the public at the Ridgefield Library on Thursday, September 15 at 10am.

According to IRIS, there are 19 million refugees in the world today, the largest number since World War II. The U.S. Government is inviting 85,000 of those refugees to become Americans in 2016; that number will increase to 100,000 in 2017. Eight hundred are arriving in Connecticut this year; 450 of them will be welcomed by IRIS and its more than 50 state-wide co-sponsors. These refugees will arrive legally, fully vetted, fully documented and with many skills, but most likely without English or money.

Ridgefield-1.8

IRIS is headquartered in New Haven, home of Yale University.

As an IRIS co-sponsor, the RRCR will help the family secure affordable housing, find jobs, access language training, and navigate the education, health and social services systems. The goal is that the family be relatively self-sufficient in six months. During that first six months, however, they will need help with transportation and living expenses, so the committee is recruiting volunteer drivers and trying to raise $15,000 for the family.

To learn more about the process and how to get involved, come to the information session or contact the committee at RRCRidgefield@gmail.com. To make a tax-deductible donation, go to the ‘online giving’ tab at http://www.ststephens-ridgefield.org, which is managing donations on behalf of the committee.

A cautionary tale….

Just about the time I started RRW, a church in my town privately sponsored an African family.  It became a nightmare for the church that finally ended when the family left for Minnesota to be with others of their African ethnic group.  Church members were ultimately left with a bitter taste in their mouths.  They first became weary of driving members of the family everywhere, and then were left with a mess in the donated home they permitted the refugees to use free of charge as the family packed up and left.  The appliances in the home had to be trashed and the place repainted.

I would like to know who will be responsible for rental property etc. (or if some crime occurs) in Ridgefield, IRIS or the local welcoming citizens? And, do the Ridgefield citizens get to pick their family—perhaps a quiet Buddhist or Christian family?

First African refugees arrive in Montana; Helena advocates say they will wait until after November for theirs

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 23, 2016

Update: Be sure to see the mayor of Missoula’s op-ed of a few days ago.  Not so much for what he says, but for the large numbers of comments on both sides of the issue.  Makes you realize that there is a huge divide in Montana about whether it is wise to bring in the third world.

A family of 6 “Congolese” refugees have arrived in Missoula, MT as the first “east African” refugees we are told. (The Congo and the DR Congo are not in east Africa.  The countries producing refugees in east Africa are Somalia, Ethiopia and Sudan. Just saying!)

Stephen Maly

Stephen Maly of World Montana has been advocating for refugees to be placed in Helena, but says he is backing off until after the November elections. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2015/06/26/montana-alert-group-wants-to-bring-in-syrian-refugees-to-replace-your-aging-population/

Here is the story (Montana Public Radio) on the family that will be very costly for Montana and US taxpayers to support:

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — An exhausted Congelese family of six experiencing culture shock has arrived in Missoula, the first of an anticipated 100 east African refugees expected to be resettled in Montana over the next year, a resettlement agency official said.

The family arrived last Thursday and International Rescue Committee Missoula director Molly Short Carr declined to identify them because of privacy concerns, but said three of the family’s four children spent their entire lives in a Tanzanian refugee camp.

Temporary housing?  The US State Department normally requires that they be placed in permanent housing upon arrival, and heck this contractor in Missoula has had months to get housing organized.

The family has been placed in temporary housing. The IRC will help them apply for social services, Social Security cards, register the children for school and help the parents enroll in English classes. The parents speak Swahili and French.

A total of 25 refugees are expected to arrive in Missoula by the end of September. Missoula County commissioners previously invited 100 refugees a year to resettle in the county, and the IRC re-opened its Missoula office earlier this year.

Meanwhile advocates for diversifying Montana in Helena say they will wait until after the November election to renew their call for Africans/Middle Easterners for their city.

Great Falls Tribune (hat tip: Joanne):

HELENA – The head of an effort to relocate Syrian refugees to Helena said Monday the group is delaying efforts until after the Nov. 8 election, saying the current political climate has stifled progress.

Stephen Maly, vice president of World Montana, said a grass-roots effort to bring Syrian refugees has been in “arrested development because of political turmoil surrounding the issue.”

“We’re trying to make progress without getting involved in politics,” he said.

Maly said there is draft legislation for the 2017 session to change refugee policy. But that is a federal issue and “not in the state bailiwick.”

He said the timing is horrible for his group of volunteers “to push something forward in political climate. People are misinformed and angry.”

“It’s not in the cards until the election is settled,” he said.

Continue reading and see how the subject of refugees has become a big issue in the gubernatorial contest there.  This is the sort of effort you should make where you live—inject the refugee controversy in to any race you can in your state!

But, it also confirms what we have been saying—November is it! If Hillary is elected the flood gates to the third world will be flung wide open!

See our extensive archive on Montana, here. And, why are we getting so many refugees from the DR Congo? Because in 2013 the Obama Administration said we would take 50,000 because the UN told us to!

Reception and Placement Abstracts: get them and use them!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 22, 2016

Knowledge is power!

We’ve been talking about those pesky R & P Abstracts for more than a year now and some of you are starting to get-it and get them!

By ‘get-it’ I mean that these documents, prepared at the level of your local resettlement contractor with the help and guidance of one of the major nine federal contractors, are the blueprints for what is being planned for your town for the upcoming fiscal year.

Update: I’ve been talking about all of this for so long I forget that new people don’t know how to find a contractor near them.  Go here and find an office near you (any of the agencies within a hundred miles of you could be bringing refugees to your town).  Call or write to the office and ask for a copy of the FY2017 R & P Abstract.

Fiscal year 2017 begins October 1, 2016.

paul-ryan-catholic-pic-601x320

Speaker Paul Ryan and other Catholics of Wisconsin must have run out of poor Americans to take care of as they pour the third world into Milwaukee. His hometown of Janesville doesn’t get any refugees yet, maybe it’s time some are sent there?

It is my contention that the public is entitled to this document in advance because you have a right to know what Washington has planned for your town (especially because you are paying for this!)

You should be told about this plan before it even goes to Washington where it becomes the basis for the President’s ‘determination’ in September when he sends his wishlist for how many refugees Congress must fund for the upcoming year.   For eight of the last nine years that I’ve been following the program, Congress says NOT a word and just takes the Presidential determination with a ‘yes master, anything you say, master’ attitude.

Last year there was a little push-back, but ultimately Congress (Speaker Paul Ryan!) agreed to pay for the increased number of new refugees (from the average of about 70,000 to 85,000 for FY16) to accommodate the Syrian influx.

So here we go again. Obama has one more shot at changing America by changing the people. The minimum number we can expect Obama to propose is 100,000.

Before I get to what an Abstract looks like and what you should do with it when you get it, I want to say that not only should communities have this document and see it published in a local newspaper, but it should be discussed in the community before it is finalized.  I recommend that every ‘welcoming’ community hold a public hearing at the mayor/council level to discuss the numbers being proposed and the amenities the town is offering the refugees.

[Note to long time readers, we have done this exercise before, see especially here when I obtained the R & P Abstract for a new resettlement site—Reno, NV. Perhaps re-read that post now. And, I encourage your local research teams to read through the ‘Proposed Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year 2016, report to Congress’ by clicking here as part of their investigative work.]

Why do I know that the R & P Abstracts are important for you to obtain?  Because the contractors do not want you to see them! In fact one of the nine contractors (maybe all of them!) sent a message to their subcontractors this past year specifically instructing their offices to NOT give them out to anyone who calls.  So what are they hiding?

Despite attempts to keep them from public view, some of you are successfully obtaining your local Abstracts and a few are actually receiving the plan for FY2017 and not the older ones.  Of course in many of these cases it has taken a Freedom of Information Act request, but at least you have them.  A few of the ones I have seen are not complete based on the 16 pages of the document for Reno, NV which includes VERY useful and informative letters of support from various entities and agencies including the local Islamic Center.

Let’s have a look at the troubled city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin!

Clearly the African-American community there is troubled!  That is a given (you would have to be living under a rock to not know that!).

CC Wisconsin

So what is the US State Department planning for Fiscal year 2017 with the paid help (you pay them!) of three resettlement contractors?  They will be dropping off a total of 925 more impoverished people from Burma, Somalia, Iraq, DR Congo, Sudan, Afghanistan, Bhutan (Nepal really), Eritrea and Ethiopia in FY 2017 alone to compete with the local African American community for work and for ‘services.’

There are three federal contractors (bidding for bodies) with offices set up in Milwaukee (three! why is there a need to have three agencies doing the same work?).  They include the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Inc.), USCRI (International Institute of Wisconsin), and the Ethiopian Community Development Council (Pan-African Community Association).

The Catholics say they want 500 refugees (included in their wish list are devout Rohingya Muslims from Burma).  USCRI wants 300 and ECDC wants 125.

In light of the trouble Milwaukee has right now, if there was a public hearing in advance of these documents going to Washington, isn’t it likely that members of the public would say—well hold on here, we have a lot of problems we need to solve right here at home before we invite the world’s poverty to Wisconsin!

We will look at the R & P Abstract for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee (which also serves Sheboygan). (I confess I don’t know what every line of the document means!)

 

 

Screenshot (3)

 

Of course you can see the location and the agency name.  And, you can see that they expect to resettle 450 refugees by September 30th (for FY 2016).

Then the most important section follows where they fill in the numbers from each area of the world they want to place in Milwaukee beginning in October for FY17.  “Tie capacity” means that there are some relatives or some others related in some way to those already there.

Abbreviations:

AF = Africa.  African ethnic groups we resettle are from: DR Congo, Somalia, Burundi, Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea and a few other lesser groups.

EA = East Asia. This group includes the large number of Burmese we have been admitting for years (and now including the Rohingya Muslims). Also, smaller numbers of Vietnamese, Chinese, Laotians and North Koreans are admitted from this region.

ECA = Europe and Central Asia.  Ukrainians and those living in the former Soviet Union like Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan fall in this group. Earlier we took tens of thousands from the Balkans.

LAC = Latin America and the Caribbean. One major country in this category is Colombia (don’t ask me why we favor Colombia!), and of course Cuba.  Think about it, we still take tens of thousands of Cubans!

NE/SA= Near East and South Asia.  This is the big category right now and includes: Afghanistan, Bhutan/Nepal, Iran, Iraq, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Syria.

In our sample Abstract, Catholic Charities of Milwaukee*** wants more of the following ethnic groups to add diversity to a struggling city.  Burmese, Chin, Karen and Rohingya are all religious minorities from Burma (Myanmar) where the Buddhist government wants to keep Burma for Buddhists only, so we see it as our job (America’s job) to take care of all their displaced people (even though the Karen and Rohingya are enemies of each other!).  But, of course the naive do-gooders think all of their differences will melt away when placed together in slums in Milwaukee.

Somalis, Iraqis, Sudanese, Congolese and Cuban round out their wish list.

And, wow, see they have 50 languages available locally from which to select expensive interpreters!

See that PRM (that stands for the State Department branch called ‘Population Refugees and Migration’) has monitored the agency and found them not completely compliant with their contract in one recent year.

Now, let’s have a look at another page:

Screenshot (4)

 

See the industries they will be placing their refugees with—Meatpacking is one! And, check out the wages. A family is not going to live on $8.75 an hour so of course the refugees will remain on welfare.

And notice that Catholic Charities is bragging that the government has great medical care available for refugees in Milwaukee.  Oh boy, that means you get to pay for their Obamacare!

Here is the third page of this abstract.  And, by the way, I feel sure this abstract is not complete.  If Reno was 16 pages this one has been shortened for some reason. What are they hiding?

Screenshot (5)

 

Have a look at this chart.  Here is what this is about.  The contractor/subcontractor is supposed to be putting up its share of money for this supposed PUBLIC/PRIVATE partnership.  So here they have to prove they have some skin in the game, that this isn’t being run completely out of the US taxpayers’ pockets (which it is, but here they try to pretend it isn’t).

What do you think the odds are that Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, which ponied-up a whopping $3,000 in cash from individuals in 2015, is actually going to find $100,000 from individuals in 2017?  Don’t make me laugh!

Then see the line ‘Volunteer hours/miles!’ They need to find volunteers because the volunteers time and miles are turned into cash (on paper) for the purpose of showing the feds in this phony system that they are doing their share to contribute to the resettlement of hundreds of poor people to Milwaukee.

And, don’t miss the line with the amount of money local and state government is handing out (and they keep telling us this is completely funded from the federal level).  Ha! Ha!

Then see the last line.  CC says it will contribute $540 per refugee in cash in FY2017, but only managed $242 in 2015. Optimistic aren’t they!

And, that doesn’t mean the cash necessarily goes to the refugee, but likely goes toward the agency’s overhead!

If you want a really good laugh, you should see the Abstract for the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) for FY17 for Milwaukee.  They are going to contribute a grand total of $53 in cash per refugee they resettle while in 2015 they shelled out a whole $24 per refugee (whoop-de-do).

Are you still with me????

So what do you do with your local R & P Abstract once you get it?

You must make the document public!

You are going to have to figure out how to do that where you live.  Go before your local government (when the media is there) and ask if your elected officials had any role in its preparation. Tell them to hold a public meeting to discuss it.

Make sure all those in your local group with similar concerns are given a copy.

If you are doing a power point presentation in your state, be sure to put the pages on the power point.

Take it to your Member of Congress and US Senators and tell them you disapprove of the numbers and that you don’t want them to vote to fund it.

Demand to know exactly which ethnic groups are coming to your town.  And, are they screened for communicable diseases?

I feel like I am beating a dead horse with this next one…..

If you can’t get to the media (those local papers have been captured!), you will have to write a blog or website so all of the information you gather is made public by your own alternative media.  Facebook pages are not as good because I don’t think you can catalog information for future reference.

It is pretty late in the cycle to make a huge impact this year with the Abstracts except to pressure Congress in to not funding Obama’s planned expansion of the program.

Next year? What do we do? Who knows…..It all depends on November!

*** Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee received almost $7 MILLION FROM US TAXPAYERS in the last 3 years.  See USASpending.gov here.

Is there no resistance to new refugee office in Ithaca, NY?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 21, 2016

It sure doesn’t sound like it.

Mayor Myrick of Ithaca

Mayor Svante Myrick says he will do anything in his power to relocate Syrian Muslim refugees to Ithaca, NY. http://ithacavoice.com/2015/11/mayor-myrick-pledges-to-help-syrian-refugees-relocate-to-ithaca/

Due to a shortage of time, I am going to urge all of you, especially in new ‘pockets of resistance,’ to read this thorough article (albeit biased in favor of refugees going to Ithaca) because it has a lot of useful information about the process of setting up a new resettlement site (this one is a Catholic Charities site).

Here is one little bit of the Ithaca Voice article that answers a question many of you have had:

After arrival in Ithaca, working-age family members are required to be self-sufficient within six months. Within a year they will apply for Green Card status. According to Spear, Catholic Charities will receive $2,025 per person. This is broken down as $900 per refugee arrival for administration and $1,125 per refugee for “client direct” assistance. This money comes from the State Department (PRM) as part of the “Reception and Placement Program” that covers the first 90 days’ costs of resettling each refugee.

Other funds are organized by federal offices such as the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Administration of Children and Families (ACF), and Refugee and Entrant Assistant funds via the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

The refugees “immediately qualify for public assistance and we are the ones that will help them with the application process,” says Chaffee. “They are going to be working and contributing to our tax base within six months. Many refugees become home owners within five or six years.”

Read it all, there is so much I would like to say about it!

First self-sufficiency is a joke.  Refugees are considered self-sufficient even if they are still on certain forms of welfare including housing assistance and food stamps.  In fact, if they go off all welfare the ‘Work Opportunity Tax Credit’ would not be available to prospective employers (and as we have said repeatedly, the driving force for the refugee resettlement program is not humanitarianism, but to provide cheap, federally subsidized, labor to certain industries!).

The original State Department tranche of money includes in this case $900 per refugee head for Catholic Charities income, however, Catholic Charities receives other grants from other federal agencies to supplement their phony Christian charity. This per head payment gets higher and higher every year!  And, since there is a per head payment, there is no incentive to slow the flow in subsequent years if the town gets overloaded.

“Public assistance” is the nice way of saying WELFARE.  Yes, they get welfare right away (including SSI for the elderly and disabled refugees) and Catholic Charities job (the federal contractor here) is to get them signed up ASAP.

And finally, even if refugees get menial jobs, they will not be taxpaying members of the community because their income will be so low that they won’t have to file.

I would really like to know the percentage of refugees who buy homes that quickly (even with a special government savings program just for refugees to buy homes!).  Some groups of refugees even enter the country with enough money to purchase property which begs the question—are they the poor downtrodden people we are led to believe they are?

Did Minneapolis Somali woman marry her brother to get him in to US?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 20, 2016

Sheesh!  See if you can figure out the marital status of the highly touted first Somali woman to win an important election in Minnesota.

Ilhan supporters cheer

Minnesota’s changing electorate: Ilhan Omar supporters cheer earlier this year. Photo Star Tribune http://www.startribune.com/support-in-metro-areas-helped-sanders-rubio-win-in-minnesota/370878581/#8

Here is how Leo Hohmann describes the latest twists and turns in the story at World Net Daily:

America’s soon-to-be first female Muslim legislator has a problem on her hands.

She’s accused of being married to two men, at the same time, including one who may be her brother. The second marriage was allegedly a sham, meant to deceive the U.S. government’s immigration system, allowing him to emigrate from the United Kingdom, according to local Minneapolis media.

But Ilhan Omar, a 33-year-old Somali refugee who was the victor in Minnesota’s Aug. 9 Democratic primary, denies the story, issuing a statement calling it “categorically false” and based on “absurd rumors that don’t bear repeating.” She charged those raising the issue are “racists” using “Donald Trump tactics” to drive a wedge between various demographic segments of Minnesota voters.

Continue reading and see if you can figure out what is going on!

History of immigration fraud with Somali refugees

I’m quoted in here about the widespread fraud that saw possibly as many as 20,000 Somalis get in to the US prior to 2008 by lying about their family relationships.  In an episode the US State Department and its resettlement contractors would like to forget, the so-called ‘P-3 family reunification program’ was closed to Somalis and a few other African groups for four years (from 2008-2012).

We have an extensive archive of stories on the scandal, click here for more.

The US State Department never went back to find and deport those who so flagrantly broke US immigration law.

Bowling Green, KY: More confirmation that refugee resettlement is not about humanitarianism, but about supplying cheap labor

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 19, 2016

I had plenty of confirmation on my recent 30-day swing through cities and towns of the west and mid-west that it is industries looking to boost their bottom lines that drive most refugee resettlement in America. 

It is food processing/meat packing, manufacturing, and the hotel industry that have discovered they can enjoy the cheap labor (while refugees continue to bolster their income with welfare*** of all sorts) at the expense of the US taxpayer and at the expense of the cultural and social upheaval communities experience.

Chris Kantosky

Kantosky is the COO of the International Institute of Kentucky. He must have told the BGN reporter that they are choosing which refugees come to which city by a weekly lottery system in Washington, DC. Photo at Linked In: https://www.linkedin.com/in/chris-kantosky-b12445115

Here is one more piece of news to support what I have been saying for years.   And, remember as you read this that Bowling Green is Senator Rand Paul’s home town.

At one time, Paul was questioning the UN/US State Dept. Refugee Admissions Program.  That was in the wake of the arrests and ultimate conviction of two Iraqi refugees found to be terrorists living and working there (so much for security screening!). He is nowhere to be seen on the issue now.

I want to urge all of you, as you to do your research on your refugee overloaded city (or city about to become a ‘welcoming’ city), to research the campaign contributions of your elected officials right down to the local mayor and council level.  Find out their business connections and expose them!

And, don’t allow yourselves to get bogged down by the open borders Left trying to tell you that the driver for the seeding of your towns with diversity is a humanitarian desire to help the downtrodden of the world (tell them to help our own poor people first!).

From the Bowling Green Daily News (hat tip: Robin).  What! Kentucky has no more Americans who want jobs?

You should know that the International Center is a subcontractor of USCRI, that is the same federal contractor working in Twin Falls, Idaho and wishing to start an office in Rutland, VT and Reno, NV.

Resettled refugees are being sought at a greater frequency to fill local jobs, Chris Kantosky, chief operations officer of The International Center of Kentucky told the Barren River Area Development District board on Wednesday.

“There are 650 open manufacturing jobs in Warren County alone,” Kantosky said. The International Center also has worked to help fill a 75-job need in Barren County, and within two weeks 50 of the jobs were filled by refugees, he said.

“They are coming to Bowling Green and Warren County because we have jobs, a great educational system, a low cost of living, the community is safe and there is an opportunity to excel,” said Kantosky, who has been working with refugees for the past 26 years.

[….]

A one-time allocation of $1,125 federal funds per refugee, or about $5,600 for a family, is used to finance resettlement logistics. The money needs to be spent in about 30 days to buy everything from a clock radio to beds, furniture and food to outfit the apartment selected for the refugees to stay. By the time the individuals reach the Nashville International Airport from their home country, they are a car ride away from a hot meal in their new home.

What Mr. Kantosky isn’t telling you in the previous paragraph is that his agency gets approximately another $1000 per head to spend on themselves!

Now this is incredible.  I knew the contractors sat around in DC and divvied up the refugees as they came in (LOL! I envision many squabbles as they bid for bodies! But, has it come to this—a lottery!).  So where are the real reporters at places like the New York Times and Washington Post—why aren’t you demanding entry to the weekly lottery meeting!  I would like to know if any industry lobbyists are in those weekly meetings!

Bowling Green News continues:

Refugee resettlement locations are determined by a weekly lottery in the nation’s capital. “A refugee can only go back to their home country if their country is re-stabilized,” Kantosky said.

And, about this bit about not going home—many refugees who get here are unhappy and want to go home, but they are trapped because most can’t afford the airfare home.  This is the part of this program that makes many of us think about slave labor!

Click here to see our extensive archive on Bowling Green and the many problems they have had there over the years in addition to the Islamic terror scare a few years ago.  And, mosques are springing up everywhere to accommodate the growing Muslim refugee population.

***Most refugees are on welfare of some sort which makes anyone who employs them eligible for the federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit.  An employer thus has a greater incentive to hire a refugee than some American who is struggling, but doesn’t want to be on welfare (including food stamps).  A refugee’s salary is subsidized by the US taxpayer, while an average American’s job isn’t.  I’ve wondered if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was somehow involved in creating this system.

Any ambitious researchers out there who would like to dig deeper into this program which incentivizes hiring refugees and write a guest post, let me know!  refugeewatcher@gmail.com

Twin Falls, Idaho: Is Prosecutor attempting to downplay rape story?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2016

Why would he do that? Because the whole narrative that keeps refugees flowing to cities and towns to supply cheap labor for multi-national corporations under the guise of humanitarianism could come crashing down.

Prosecutor Grant Loebs

That, carefully crafted, decades old narrative, is this: refugees are good people, downtrodden souls, escaping war and poverty, and it is US tradition (indeed our role in the world!) to care for those in need and so we must welcome refugees from around the globe who only want a better life for their little children (even if they come from cultures that do not share our traditions, values and laws).

Therefore, news about refugee children raping and sexually assaulting American children simply must be covered-up.  There is too much money involved to let this story grow!

Here is the latest from Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily who interviewed the rape victim’s tenacious new attorney.  I’ll let you read it yourself.

If you are a new reader, this is a good summary of where the case is today.  Here, in a nutshell, is what is going on:

“He’s [prosecutor Grant Loebs] taken a bizarre route and tried to manipulate this narrative into something that he wants, that covers everything up, but he’s not going to succeed. I’m going to lay out why he’s violating the rules of professional conduct and his own oath to represent the victim zealously, regardless of personal cost. He just wants to protect the refugee community so they can work at Chobani and so College of Southern Idaho can continue to get the refugee money.”

Our complete Twin Falls archive is here.  It extends back to early 2015 when we reported on the new (expanding) mosque there.

Polls: Most Americans do not want Obama to bring in Syrians and distribute them around the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2016

Donald Trump must continue to hammer this issue—the American people do not want to pay for, or worry about their security as the Obama Administration is nearly its goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian Muslims to the US by September 30th.

And, for those of you who think that will be it, it won’t be as Obama and Hillary are gearing up to make 2017 an even bigger year for bringing the third world to your town.

Before I give you this latest poll news, I need to make sure you all understand something that even I wasn’t fully wrapping my mind around.  Although we write frequently about the 190 or so US resettlement offices (see list here), refugee placement is not restricted to the town where the contractor’s office is located, but in fact refugees are distributed in 100 mile radius circles around those offices and thus I will bet Syrians and other refugees (Somalis, Burmese Rohingya, Iraqis etc.) have been settled in thousands of American small towns over the years.

map Syrians this fiscal year

I just checked the US State Department data base (Refugee Processing Center) and see that 184 cities and towns (map: 38 states) have received Syrians in the last 11 months.

Here is the polling information from the World Tribune:

Americans are overwhelmingly against accepting a wave of Syrian refugees into the country, a new poll found.

Just 36 percent of U.S. voters support allowing the refugees to enter, according to a Chicago Council on Global Affairs poll released on Aug. 15.

The Obama administration is close to reaching its goal of allowing 10,000 Syrian refugees into the U.S. by the end of September.

Anne Richard, assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, said earlier this month that 8,000 Syrians have already been re-settled.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has pledged to increase the number of Syrian refugees coming to the U.S.

Hillary Clinton: U.S. should take 65,000 Syrian refugees

The media has been mum about it, but a wise Trump campaign should find Hillary’s declaration last fall on Face the Nation and play it over and over again!

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Sunday that the United States should accept 65,000 refugees from Syria to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis created by the war there.

Here is my post on what she said.  She was following the lead of the United Nations and the Senate Jihad Caucus (pushed by the resettlement contractors!) which called for 65,000 before Obama leaves  office.  See my June 2015 explanation (below) about where Hillary got the number 65,000! By the way, look for Obama’s even larger number at the UN pow wow in September.

My message is more urgent today than it was in June 2015!
