Multi-million $$$ Lutheran group lobbies Congress/White House, demands more Syrian Muslim refugees be admitted to US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 8, 2015

It is Sunday morning and if you are a Lutheran you need to have a talk with your pastor—ask what is being done in the name of your faith in Washington.


LIRS lobbyist (right) Brittney Nystrom with unidentified man delivering demand for MORE SYRIAN REFUGEES at White House meeting. Recently Nystrom said LIRS wants 100,000 Syrians admitted in the next year here:

Here we learn that Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) helped put on a two day lobbying initiative in Washington. Did they do it on your dime?

Before you read on, have a look at the most recently available Form 990 for LIRS.  They took in $48,392,082 in gifts and grants and $46,414,735 (p.9) was from GOVERNMENT GRANTS (TAXPAYER DOLLARS!)—that is 96% funded by you.  They have at least six employees in the six-figure salary range!  See LIRS ritzy Inner Harbor of Baltimore headquarters, here.

Here is the news from Washington:


Syrian refugee champion advocate: Representative David Cicilline (D-RI) spoke to the Lutheran lobbying contingent.

On October 26–27, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) brought together over 30 Lutheran bishops, pastors, service partners, and leaders for the annual Lutheran Immigration Leadership Summit (LILS). This event draws leaders who commit themselves and their communities to the mission of welcoming migrants and refugees. This year, LILS focused on welcoming refugees in the midst of the global refugee crisis.

Advocacy Training Day

LILS kicked off with a day of in-depth advocacy training led by noteworthy experts and advocates. LIRS staff prepared participants to call on Congress and the Administration to champion positive refugee resettlement legislation, protect families by rejecting the practice of family detention, and invest in robust resources for refugees. The day drew to a close with a dinner reception that included remarks from Robert Carey, Director for the Office of Refugee Resettlement, who praised and inspired LILS participants for their dedicated work.  [By the way, Carey came to his government job from a VPs perch at another federal refugee contractor, International Rescue Committee.  They keep it (the flow of your money) all in the family!—ed]

Read all about their Hill visits and then this when they had an audience at the White House:

….and delivered petitions from thousands of Lutherans asking for the resettlement of more Syrian refugees.

More here if you can stand it!

No where is it reported that they make all those millions of dollars from resettling refugees where they are paid by the head (by the US State Department) to do it.

Nor is it mentioned that 97% of the Syrians resettled in the US so far are Sunni Muslims.

We are not saving the Syrian Christians because the UNHCR is picking our refugees and he told an audience in Washington recently (we were there) that Syrian Christians are not being persecuted and are not in need of protection (I kid you not!).

***Update*** If Christian Syrians aren’t being persecuted why are hundreds of them in Jordan being taken care of by one priest, here.

Therefore….LIRS is lobbying for Syrian Muslims to be resettled in your towns.  Go here to see where LIRS works.  Is your city one of their targets?

Catholic Charities begins resettling Syrian Muslims in Louisiana

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 6, 2015

Remember we learned that 97% of the Syrians entering the US so far are Sunni Muslims.  Heretofore, Louisiana has not been a top resettlement target (but the feds and Catholic Charities are always out scouting for new territory!).

From News:

Refugees migrating from Syria and Afghanistan have begun to arrive in the New Orleans area.


Lafayette (green star) rated as one of the best places to live in Louisiana.

Catholic Charities, which is part of the Archdiocese of New Orleans has taken in two Syrian refugee families and is expecting many more.

There are approximately 180 cities in the country that are eligible to accept some 10,000 Syrian refugees. In Louisiana, those cities include Metairie, Baton Rouge and Lafayette.

The Syrian refugees are first flown to the United States, with the State Department paying the International Organization for Migration for the airfare.

Once the refugees arrive in the country, they receive assistance in settling and finding employment in the area.

It’s believed the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force will run the incoming refugees through a Terrorist Screening Center.

Catholic Charities has targeted services for helping refugees, and has received a federal grant from the U.S. Department of State/Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration to assist the newcomers.

There is more, click here.

Myth: Refugees get free cars explained; not free, but taxpayer subsidized

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 4, 2015

Update November 5:  A reader tells us there is a way for refugees to get cars free (besides the IDA method below).  If others of you have more information on how these ‘deals’ work, please let us know:

The most common route to a “free car” is through the Match Grant program – and yes this does provide a free used car to the refugee and cash to the contractor. The way it works is john Q public (or a dealer) donates his car to the Match Grant program. The contractor (Volag) gives the car to the refugee and, at the same time, presents a bill to the ORR Match Grant program . ORR Match Grant pays cash to the contractor (Volag) for 90% of the claimed value of the donated car. I am not exactly sure of the 90% – it is always changing and always getting better and better for the contractor (Volag).By now it could 100% of the claimed value. At any rate, the U.S. treasury takes 2 hits: one for the guy who writes off the donation on this tax returns and one for the pay out to the contractor (Volag).

One more mention of North Dakota and then I have to do a  whole bunch of other things (I expect posting may be sporadic in the coming days).

Close up shot of Uncle Sam holding pink piggy bank

Yes, the federal government runs a piggy bank for refugees and cars are one of the permitted goals for the special savings account. The resettlement contractors manage the money.

When we told you about the myth-buster meeting in Fargo earlier this morning, here, one line in the news account jumped out at me (one of several), but I want to tell you a bit about this one:

She added that refugees are not given free cars. “They get, at most, a four-month bus pass,” she said.

For years I’ve been seeing the “free cars” line.  There really is an explanation to it, but because whoever asked about it at the meeting probably didn’t ask the right question that allowed Ms. Thomasson to dismiss it as she did.

In fact, the Office of Refugee Resettlement has a special grant program called ‘Individual Development Accounts (IDAs).

We told you about it here recently (sorry for daily readers that we have to go over these things, but on some days we have a couple thousand new readers who have never been here before, so we have to repeat information).

For every dollar the refugee saves for one of 4 possible savings goals, you, the federal taxpayer match them a dollar.  This whole program is managed through resettlement contractors like Lutheran Social Services.

Here is the gist of the program:

Individual Development Accounts (IDA) are matched savings accounts designed to help refugees save for a specific purchase. Under the IDA program, the matching funds, together with the refugee’s own savings from their employment, are available for purchasing one (or more) of four savings goals:

Home purchase
Small business development
Post secondary education or training
Automobile (for employment purposes)
Public or private non-profit organizations administer IDA programming.


IDA grantees provide matched savings accounts to refugees whose annual income is less than 200 percent of the poverty level and whose assets, exclusive of a personal residence and one vehicle, are less than $10,000. Grantees provide matches of up to $1 for every $1 deposited by a refugee in a savings account. The total match amount provided may not exceed $2,000 for individuals or $4,000 for households. Upon enrolling in an IDA program, a refugee signs a savings plan agreement which specifies the savings goal, the match rate, and the amount the refugee will save each month.

I must mention that there was a time when Catholic Charities was taking donations of used cars and there were some stories about cars going to refugees that way, but I haven’t heard of it in recent years.

I am guessing that the “free cars” claim is based on the IDAs.

If the question had been asked in this way: “Do refugees get car purchases subsidized through federal grants?” I would hope Ms. Thomasson would explain the program.

Incidentally, you can imagine that when word gets out in communities that refugees are getting ‘goodies’ like this and the average low-income American isn’t getting these special deals, some tension likely builds in the community.

More on the North Dakota poll: Lutheran’s refugee program opposed by 57%

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 4, 2015

In my previous post I mentioned that in Fargo, ND yesterday, the major refugee resettlement contractor spoke to a gathering hosted by the Chamber of Commerce to dispel the “myths” about refugee resettlement in the US.

Gotta keep the refugees flowing into North Dakota because LSS has a fancy new building to pay for. LSS is paid by the head to resettle refugees AND they receive other federal grants for all sorts of additional “programs” for their special charges. From a recent FORM990 we learned they received over $10 million in government grants. Here is what we said in August:

After posting it, I came across this news account from Valley News Live which commissioned the poll.  And, I want to commend them for taking this initiative!

Perhaps all of you in ‘Pockets of Resistance’ should encourage a respected news outlet to commission a poll like this.

The story begins:

Refugees coming to the United States is quickly becoming a defining issue for the field of 2016 presidential hopefuls. It’s an issue too that directly affects us here in the Fargo-Moorhead area. This is a major resettlement region, and Fargo is home to the largest group of refugees in North Dakota.

This is the first in a series taking a deep dive into this issue, exploring your opinions, the impacts to our schools, our neighborhoods and our infrastructure, how your tax money is being spent and how this issue extends well beyond supporting or opposing refugee resettlement.

We, at Valley News Live, wanted to really understand your viewpoints when it came to this issue so we had a solid starting point from which to work. We commissioned a study by Mason Dixon Polling and Research out of Jacksonville, Florida, paid for it and now have those opinions.

I’m not going to snip the poll results because I want you to go visit Valley News Live yourself by clicking here.  Note that Independents made up the most number of respondents indicating very clearly that this issue is not a Republican v. Democrat issue.

Fargo, ND poll: Most citizens do not want more refugee resettlement

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 4, 2015

But, almost more interesting to me (in this news account) was the fact that the local CHAMBER OF COMMERCE hosted the event to try to convince the citizens there that they are wrong.

Readers, if you don’t know it already—The Chamber of Commerce throughout America is FOR more migration to America and lobbies FOR amnesty and obviously is now openly out in front promoting more refugee resettlement.  Can you say cheap immigrant labor!  And, look at the Republican members of Congress and Senators who are wimps on immigration and you will likely find the Chamber behind them (and funding them!).

From the Grand Forks Herald (emphasis is mine):

FARGO — The head of the nonprofit agency tasked with resettling refugee groups in North Dakota gave a presentation Tuesday hoping to dispel misconceptions about refugees.

Jessica Thomason

“Today, we are going to be clearing the air,” Jessica Thomasson, CEO of Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota, told a crowd of about 200 people at the Radisson Hotel in downtown Fargo.

Among the notions that Thomasson sought to debunk was the idea that refugees are responsible for increases in crime. “We know there is no correlation,” she said, citing a study that showed: “Immigrants are less likely to commit serious crimes or be behind bars than the native-born population.”***

Thomasson, whose talk was hosted by the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce, said the U.S. Department of Homeland Security screens refugees before they enter the country. “The United States has as one of its policies that we don’t resettle people who have been aggressors in the conflicts,” she said.

Thomasson’s talk came at a time when refugee resettlement is a hotly contested issue in North Dakota, which leads the nation in refugee resettlement per capita.

The day before Thomasson spoke, Valley News Live aired the results of a poll the TV station commissioned. Of the 625 adults surveyed in Cass and Clay Counties, 57 percent opposed the continued resettlement of refugees in the area, 28 percent supported it and 15 percent were undecided. The poll had a margin of error of no more than 4 percentage points.

Continue reading here.

***Update***  Here are the survey results.  And here is my post on the poll. And, one more update here—“myth” about free cars explained.

Go here for all of our previous posts on North Dakota.  This post is filed in our ‘Pockets of Resistance’ category, here.

By the way when you check our archives on North Dakota you will see several horrible crimes committed by refugees there—the one that jumped out at me was the Somali mass murder of native Americans, here.  Then there was the “hatchet man”….

In Atlantic City, NJ, owner of shuttered casino says he would house Syrian refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 4, 2015

There is money in ‘them thar’ refugees!  Throughout Europe there are stories of developers and others in the real estate business who see dollar signs (well Euros, where they live) as the migrants pour in, but this is the first time we are seeing a developer here in America look to overtly cash in on federally-funded ‘humanitarianism.’

See our post last year from Germany—luxury hotel converted to housing for refugees.

Revel, the casino many people had hoped would turn around Atlantic City's sagging fortunes, on Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2013 said that it will file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in March, less than a year after it opened.

Although readers, you will find many local cases of rental property owners working hand-in-glove with local resettlement agencies, or developers looking for HUD money to diversify housing in your town, it is all kept pretty under the table.

The owner of the Revel, a shuttered casino, is apparently cash-strapped and right out in the open in his appeal.

From NBC10:

So far, the owner of Atlantic City’s former Revel casino has proposed using it as an indoor water park, a medical tourism resort, an equestrian facility and a so-called “genius academy” where the world’s top minds would tackle society’s problems.

Now add this to Glenn Straub’s thoughts for the property: housing Syrian refugees.

Straub told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he’s willing to let people displaced by the civil war in Syria stay at the 47-story Revel resort as he fights in court over its future. Straub has been trying to reopen Revel since buying it in April for $82 million but has been beset by litigation from utility companies and former tenants that has so far kept it shuttered.

“We treat our dogs better than we treat the Syrians right now,” he said. “If the government wanted to house Syrian refugees, I’d give them use of the building and let them put those people there.”


The U.S. State Department said Tuesday that it had not been contacted by Straub but would be willing to put him in contact with a local refugee resettlement agency*** should he so desire.

Straub said his only request would be reimbursement for the cost of operating the building while refugees were staying there.

***The closest resettlement agency is in Camden, NJ (go here to see the entire list of resettlement contractors, find one near where you live).

By the way, I don’t see Atlantic City on the list of cities whose mayors are hankering for more immigrants to boost their sagging economies.  And, there are two NJ cities looking for Syrian refugees, but I don’t see A.C. on the list yet.

York County, SC resolution fails, but public gets educated!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 3, 2015

Efforts to head off possible resettlement of refugees in York County, SC was slowed when a resolution put forth by one member of the council failed (although it was never put to a vote), but remember that we are up against powerful forces in some states.

In South Carolina the Republican Governor has already signaled her support of more refugees being resettled in a state which heretofore hasn’t been overloaded (unlike most states surrounding SC).  And, the powerful Senior Senator of the State—Lindsey Graham—is openly advocating for the resettlement of Syrian refugees to America.  I suspect that when Graham says “jump” the R’s (who desire upward political mobility) in the state do what he says.

So…. this effort is not wasted because it has obviously generated a discussion (and a controversy) that other local citizens are now learning about.

Here are a couple of short snips from The Herald:

Joe Newton

Joe Newton came from Georgia (a state that is seriously strained by the refugee flow) to tell the South Carolinians what they can expect. His website is here:

….the ordinance worries refugees will receive federal assistance to resettle in the U.S., that they might not work or learn English, become burdens on the taxpayer and “build enclaves, preserving the language and culture of their countries of origin rather than fully integrate into the surrounding community.”

The motion drew support from speakers at Monday night’s meeting. Joe Newton of Norcross, Ga., spoke before the council wearing a “Stop Refugee Resettlement” T-shirt. He told the council that schools in the Atlanta area have been “overwhelmed” by previously settled refugees who speak 150 languages.

New refugees would “increase that to 200 languages, plus 18 dialects spoken by the Syrians,” Newton said.

Governor Haley could stand up for the Tenth Amendment and against federal dumping of the costs of this program on the states if she had any backbone.

She might not succeed (yet), but the state’s rights issue is one she, as a Republican, should be championing.  This is a very reasonable proposal.

If it had been approved, the resolution would call for Gov. Nikki Haley to stop resettlement until its effects are studied separately by the State Law Enforcement Division and several state departments: Social Services, Labor, Education, and Health and Environmental Control. Resettlement should not resume until every refugee is cleared by the Department of Homeland Security, and “Each South Carolina State Senator holds several Town Hall meetings in his or her district … to determine that there is not substantial public opposition.”

More here.

Go here and see the locations of resettlement contractors in the US.  If you are within 100 miles of any of them, your town is fair game.  I suggest going on the offense and alerting your local elected government that this expensive and potentially risky resettlement of third worlders might be coming your way.

Sacramento to welcome large number of Syrians says resettlement contractor

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 2, 2015

There is nothing unexpected in this news article about the new CEO of ‘Opening Doors’ another resettlement agency contracted through Church World Service (one of nine major resettlement contractors working for the UN/US State Department), but I bring it to you because it makes some points we have been making lately.

Yes!  They are contractors!

I had to laugh when I saw this line on their website.  South Carolina readers will recall that when Asst. Sec. of State for PRM, Anne Richard, came to Spartanburg she said that they were not “CONTRACTORS,” but had signed “agreements.”  Someone needs to tell ‘Opening Doors:’

Refugees come to us through our affiliate, Church World Service Immigration and Refugee Program that is under contract to the United States Department of State.

First and foremost I was interested in the fact that Opening Doors (largely funded with taxpayer dollars)*** doesn’t just resettle refugees, but works with and for illegal aliens as well. That is a point I have been making lately.  Many who want to see illegal immigration brought under control say “legal immigration is good,” but these groups we fund—like Opening Doors—are perfectly fine with promoting the rights of illegal migrants right along with their resettlement work that is paid for by you!

Here is the story from the Sacramento Bee:

Deborah Ortiz, a veteran public servant who spent years trying to help immigrants and refugees in Sacramento and the state, will soon be aiding hundreds of new Sacramentans fleeing violence or persecution in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and more than half a dozen other nations.

On Jan. 1, the former city council member, assemblywoman and state senator will take over as CEO of Opening Doors, a nonprofit agency that helps refugees, immigrants and human-trafficking survivors achieve self-sufficiency through job training, small-business loans and access to legal and social services. Last year, the agency served more than 650 immigrants and refugees and helped resettle 423. It also assisted 94 human-trafficking survivors.


Since 2011, when the Syrian conflict started, 1,500 Syrians have been resettled nationwide. Sacramento ranks third in the nation among cities receiving them. Since April, Opening Doors, one of several resettlement agencies here, has resettled 25.  [97% of those arriving in FY2015 are Muslims, does Church World Service not advocate for persecuted Christians?  Guess not!—ed]

Is Opening Doors keeping a huge chunk of the refugees cash?

Then this (below) gave me pause.  Refugees are given cash by the federal government in the amount of $1,975 per person and the contractor usually pockets around $800 of it (per refugee) for their overhead (they are paid by the head for their work, thus they have every incentive to never slow the flow).

Does this mean that Opening Doors is pocketing an even bigger chunk?

Note again, that the contractor’s job is to sign the refugees up for their welfare goodies.  You can be sure that no matter how hard they wish it, the refugees are NOT “independent” in three months as they claim.

Refugees receive $925 in federal funding for the first 30 days. It helps pay for setting up their households, food, housing and nominal expenses. Their refugee status many help them qualify for other income-based public assistance programs including cash assistance, Medi-Cal, and CalFresh (food stamps) for up to eight months for adults without dependent children. Families with children are eligible to receive benefits for four years.

Opening Doors supports them for three months from the date of arrival in Sacramento. The agency enrolls refugees in ESL classes, human services and employment services to help them to become independent at the end of the three months.

Maybe it’s the reporter’s fault, but someone needs to see if this contractor is keeping a big chunk of the refugees’ cash.

*** Here is Opening Doors’ most recently available Form 990.  They are a $1.3 million a year business with just about $1 million coming from your wallets.

Endnote: An Iraqi refugee wrote this criticism of Opening Doors in 2010.

Pittsburgh, PA Mayor Peduto: Bring us Syrian Muslims!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 2, 2015

The Mayor of Pittsburgh, PA is one of 18 mayors who recently wrote to Obama asking the administration to admit 100,000 Syrians to America in the coming year. By the way, 97% of those admitted in FY2015 were Muslims, not persecuted Christians.



Not concerned about security warnings, Pittsburgh Mayor Peduto “welcomes” Syrians to the city where they need more diversity we are told!


Here is a story at

Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto is committed to providing safe harbor for Syrian migrants, despite security concerns raised by top government officials.

Peduto recently joined 17 mayors from across the county urging President Obama to accept more than his proposed number of 10,000 Syrians this fiscal year. The mayors said they would work to find space for refugees in their cities.


Peduto said he has asked four resettlement agencies — Northern Area Multi-Service Center in Sharpsburg, Jewish Family and Children’s Services in Squirrel Hill, Downtown-based Catholic Charities of Pittsburgh, and AJAPO Refugee Immigration Services in the Hill District — to determine whether Pittsburgh has space for 500 Syrians.

What!  He only wants 500 of the 100,000 he is begging Obama for?   It seems to me that if 18 mayors ask for 100,000 that means that each of their 18 cities gets 5,555!  All of you in pockets of resistance should be saying, send our allotment to the 18!  Including to Baltimore!

Pittsburgh Anne Richard

From Left: JF&CS Refugee Services Director, Leslie Aizenman, Secretary of State for the U.S. Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, Anne Richard and Allegheny County Chief Executive, Rich Fitzgerald. Photo:

Get the facts straight!

The government pays about $1,100 per refugee to house, feed and provide basics for the first three months, Mugwaneza [Kheir Mugwaneza, director of the Northern Area Multi-Service Center’s refugee program] said. After that, they must be employed and start paying bills on their own, he said.

They aren’t telling readers that when the refugee gets the $1,100 per refugee the resettlement contracting agency gets about $800 dollars per refugee and that the agency’s job is to get the refugees signed up for all forms of welfare!  Get them their healthcare, housing and sign the kids up for school.  See here.

Now look at this!  How many times are we told that refugees are self-sufficient in 3-6 months!  What!  Without jobs!

It’s tough to find entry-level jobs for refugees and even harder to find housing. Few landlords are willing to accept families who have no immediate income, said Leslie Aizenman, director of refugee and immigrant services at Jewish Family and Children’s Services.

She said refugees help rebuild downtrodden city neighborhoods and attract young residents looking for residential diversity, Aizenman said.

I bet those young inner city African American residents are eagerly anticipating the arrival of diversity, competition for jobs and housing!

There is more, continue reading here.  I wonder why the reporter never mentioned that Peduto and the other 17 mayors specifically said Obama should bring in 100,000?

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?
