Organization of Islamic Cooperation wants international pressure on Burma over Rohingya Muslims

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 10, 2018

My first thought when I saw this news, that the OIC was again ginning up a PR campaign to paint the Burma (Myanmar) Buddhist government as a bunch of Islamophobes and human right abusers, was this:

So why aren’t any of you big mouth countries displaying Muslim charity and inviting Rohingya to live in your countries?

Where are you Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UAE?

 

no-oic

No fear! Burmese monks marched against the OIC in 2012:   http://www.buddhistchannel.tv/index.php?id=51,11144,0,0,1,0#.WvQvj4gvw2w

 

Readers DO NOT FORGET!  The US has invited 14,882 Rohingya in the last ten years to live in your towns.  And, they are still arriving now even under the Trump Administration.

But, they are not being “welcomed” in to rich Muslim countries!

Refugee admissions from Africa and the Near East/South Asia way off the mark

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 8, 2018

While the Europe ceiling has been almost reached after 7 months.

As you know, the President set the CEILING for refugee admissions for Fiscal Year 2018 back in September at 45,000.

We are now 7 months in to that fiscal year and the US State Department database (maintained by contractor Wrapsnet) has a detailed accounting of who we have admitted and where they are from.

First, here (below) is a graph showing the CEILING and the actual monthly admissions numbers for the last ten years. On April 30th, the seven month mark, we have admitted 12,188.

When you go to Wrapsnet, here, this is data from a spread sheet found by clicking on this line under Admissions Reports: PRM Admissions Graph April 30, 2018.

(They usually update these numbers around the 5th of each month for the previous months of the fiscal year.)

The world is divided into 5 regions for the purpose of setting ceilings and admitting refugees.

See how many we have admitted so far….

Another 16 detainees that Australia refuses to resettle are on their way to four locations in US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 30, 2018

We learn from Radio New Zealand that the 16 ‘refugees’ from Muslim countries are going to Chicago, Las Vegas, Texas and Arizona (cities in TX and AZ not named).

australian detainees

More mostly Muslim young men on the way to America on the taxpayer’s dime!

Trump’s travel ban has eliminated those from Somalia, Sudan and Iran, but golly-gee, this bunch is from those safe countries of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Rohingya from Bangladesh/Burma.

President Trump promised the Aussies that we would take up to 1,250 of those the Australians don’t want in their country—Obama’s dumb deal is Trump’s dumb deal now.

Rohingya ‘refugees’ back in the news (why you should care)!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 29, 2018

I’ve told you before that I turn on CNN every morning so I get a feel for where the Left is going every day and today I said uh-oh, here we go on the Burmese Rohingya again. CNN featured a longer piece on the “plight” of Rohingya Muslims in Burma (a Buddhist country).

burmese-monks-e1506120223754-1

No fear! Buddhist monks protest Rohingya Muslims in Burma (aka Myanmar)

I couldn’t possibly rehash the decade long controversy (the decade I chronicled in my Rohingya Reports category where 220 posts are archived), but I want you to know why this matters to you and that is that we are admitting Rohingya refugees to live in towns near you—14,882 in the last decade—including over 1,000 since Trump became President (So much for a so-called “Muslim ban!”)

Before I get to the numbers breakdown over the last ten years….

…here is a bare bones story about stepped-up UN (with the US!) efforts to smackdown the Buddhist government of Myanmar.

A reader asks: Who is resettling refugees in North Carolina?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 27, 2018

And, part 2 of reader Robert’s question was: How can I find out where those Aussie detainees will be placed in my state?

Robert’s question was in response to this post:

Flight glitch causes some delay as Australia’s rejected ‘refugees’ head to US

I’m glad he asked because it reminds me that there are so many people reading RRW now who haven’t been with me for the last almost 11 years and so they have missed information previously posted.

First, a reminder that at the top of RRW (under the header) is a page entitled: FAQS! Finding Stuff.  I think most of you will find something useful there. And, if you are just relying on e-mail notices about each of my posts and not coming to the blog, you are missing a lot.  (Even if you aren’t on twitter, if you come to RRW you will see my twitter feed in the right hand column and see other related news that I don’t have time to post!)

Linked in FAQS! is the US State Department’s State-by-State index of refugee contractors working in your states. I don’t know how thorough they are with keeping it updated, you may find errors in contact information and phone numbers.

burmese-biter

Writing about NC reminds me: Does anyone know whatever happened to the Burmese biter who was being resettled in NC last spring?   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/05/28/burmese-biter-was-headed-for-new-bern-nc-are-we-importing-mentally-ill-in-refugee-program/

But, before I post the offices in North Carolina—a state with a huge number of contractors at work—on the issue of where the Australian rejected ‘refugees’ are going, I doubt you will find out.

If you called each office in NC, they will tell you you can’t have that information (privacy). The only possibility of finding out is if some local newspaper is inquisitive enough, but expect any story to be of the squishy PC variety.

You might consider contacting your members of Congress and see if they can find out. They likely won’t have any more luck than you, but it will be a good lesson (for them) in how this program is run so secretively.

Also, since there are large numbers of Burmese refugees in NC already, look to the Rohingya (Burmese Muslims) we have been told are coming from Australia to be placed in Burmese communities even though we know that Burmese Christians fear the Rohingya refugees.

The Burmese Rohingya Muslims are not on the Trump “banned” countries list.

Eight of nine federal contractors*** are working in North Carolina attesting to the fact that the state has rolled out the welcome mat!

Here are screenshots of the federal contractors’ contact information for North Carolina (a state they are turning blue through immigration).

In the left hand corner, as in this first screenshot, is each subcontractor’s primary contractor.

See the contractor list at the end of this post. The only tricky one is Episcopal Migration Ministries which often hides behind its other name: Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (DFMS).

Knowledge is power!

I urge all of you to use the FAQS! here at the top of the page and do some research. Then type your state’s name into my search window and find out what I’ve reported from your state during the last ten plus years!

***These are the nine federal contractors that monopolize all US resettlement. Only the IRC is absent from NC. Number in parenthesis is the amount of federal dollars (your money) going to their budgets.

Refugee numbers are low for first 3 months of fiscal year; Ohio is top receiving state

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 1, 2018

As promised, below are the stats for the first three months of fiscal year 2018 (it began on October 1, 2017).

Update January 3: More detailed numbers analysis by Michael Leahy at Breitbart, here.

President Trump set the CEILING for the year at 45,000 refugees. That is the lowest CEILING since the Refugee Act of 1980 (Kennedy/Biden) was signed in to law by Jimmy Carter.

Somalis in Columbus

Columbus, Ohio second only to Minneapolis for its number of Somalis. Columbus received 245 refugees from 11 different countries, including Somalia, in the first three months of the fiscal year. It was followed by Akron as the second most ‘welcoming’ city in the state with 139 ‘new Americans’ in the last 3 months.

I capitalize the word CEILING because I want to get it into the heads of reporters that a CEILING is not a target to be achieved. It is a cap that the President cannot exceed without consultation with Congress.

There is nothing in refugee law that says he can’t come in with half of the proposed CEILING.

And, if the present rate of resettlement were to continue for the year, that is about where we will come in.

According to Wrapsnet, as of today, we have admitted 5,323 refugees over 13 weeks.

Extending that same rate out for 52 weeks would put the number at just under 22,000 for the year. 

I know, to many readers, that 22,000 is too many, but you can be sure the low number of paying “clients” (refugees) will wreak havoc with the budgets of the nine federal contractors which could (optimistically) in turn force a complete review about why we have such a dysfunctional system where ‘non-profits’ are paid by the head to place refugees (in as much secrecy as they can muster) into towns and cities in 49 states.

There is never an incentive to slow the flow in overloaded communities with such a system where nine contractors*** are literally bidding for bodies.

Here is where the 5,323 have been placed as of today:

 

Screenshot (118)

Data available at the Refugee Processing Center (Wrapsnet) for October 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017.  I know the numbers are a little hard to read, but nothing I can do about it.

 

The top ten ‘welcoming’ states are: Ohio, Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington, California, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan and North Carolina.  California is normally first or second so who knows what that is all about.

Top ten countries from which we admitted refugees since October 1, 2017:

Bhutan (1,535)

DR Congo (1,154)

Burma (655)

Ukraine (487)

Eritrea (428)

Russia (132)

Somalia (128)

El Salvador (113)

Ethiopia (102)

Afghanistan (81)

Iraq (77), which has been in the top three or so for years, didn’t make the top ten.

The percentage of Muslim refugees is way down. 

In the final Obama years we were admitting close to 50% Muslim refugees and now (all Muslim sects combined) we admitted 726 Muslims in the last 3 months which amounts to about 14%.

I am concerned to see that 199 of the 726 were Muslims from Burma (Rohingya).

*** These are the nine federal refugee contractors. I like to post this list once a day (if I remember!) so new readers can begin to get the list memorized! They have hundreds of subcontractors working for them.  If you visit their websites you can find out which, if any, are operating where you live.

More on the “dumb deal” to relieve Australia of unwanted migrants

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 14, 2017

This time it’s at the New York Times.  But, I am out of time to parse this latest news in any depth.

There are two things (among many things) I want you to take note of in this account.

elaine-pearson_03_web-bio

Elaine Pearson, Human Rights Watch Australia: These men have acute mental health problems and need to be moved (to America?) ASAP.  Photo:  https://www.hrw.org/about/people/elaine-pearson

First, there is now a debate raging about whether Australia’s detained (failed) asylum seekers from countries now banned by the Trump Administration will be grandfathered in because the deal was first made by Obama in 2016 (and agreed to by President Trump!).

The star of this account is a Rohingya Muslim (most detainees are single Muslim men who tried to break into Australia by boat).

The Rohingya of Burma/Bangladesh are not on the banned list, so expect to see more of them entering the US (as other Muslims from places like Somalia, Iraq and Syria are kept to a minimum).

But, I just couldn’t believe this admission:

Did she really mean to say this?

“If the U.S. isn’t going to accept people from certain countries, they should make that crystal clear now so Australia can make alternative arrangements,” said Elaine Pearson, the Australia director for Human Rights Watch. “There’s no time to waste — these refugees have acute mental health problems made worse by years of uncertainty and insecurity on Manus and Nauru.”

Deal gets dumber every time we hear about it. 

Is your town ready for your New Americans: Muslim men who have mental health problems from years in detention with only other men who will be free to roam your neighborhoods!

More here.

And, for new readers, if you have never heard about the unprecedented “dumb deal” for the US to take ‘refugees’ that Australia doesn’t want, go here.

This post is also filed in my extensive Rohingya Reports category, here.

The Rohingya narrative driven by ‘human rights activists’ is a big lie

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 13, 2017

Rohingya-Mujahideen-28.sized-770x415xt

These are Rohingya jihadists! 

 

I’ve been writing about Rohingya ‘refugees’ for ten years and have watched the Leftwing media machine work overtime to produce a narrative that the poor Muslim Rohingya in Burma (Myanmar) and Bangladesh are being persecuted and killed by Burmese Buddhists and therefore they need to be forced on Burma or better still moved to Your Town, USA and into the West generally.

If anyone is interested in writing the real story, and debunking the propaganda, see my Rohingya Reports category with hundreds of posts here.

I’m not writing a book today, but here are some key points beginning with this quote from that Rightwing rag—Time magazine:

Today, southern Bangladesh has become a haven for hundreds of jihadis on the lam. They find natural allies in Muslim guerrillas from India hiding out across the border, and in Muslim Rohingyas, tens of thousands of whom fled the ethnic and religious suppression of the Burmese military junta in the late 1970s and 1980s. Many Rohingyas are long-term refugees, but some are trained to cause trouble back home in camps tolerated by a succession of Bangladeshi governments. The original facilities date back to 1975, making them Asia’s oldest jihadi training camps. And one former Burmese guerrilla who visits the camps regularly describes three near Ukhia, south of the town of Cox’s Bazar, as able to accommodate a force of 2,500 between them.

That was from an article in Time in 2002! Seven years later Time was singing the Human Rights Industrial Complex’s tune!

Then here we learned that the Bush Dept. of State (in 2008) had linked Islamic terror groups to the Rohingya, but by 2012 (Obama) the State Department list was gone.  See my post here.

Some experts are trying to set the record straight:

Just a few days ago I reported on an op-ed in The Hill where a retired foreign service officer says (shock!) that the Rohingya should be resettled in Muslim countries and here is Patrick Poole back in September reporting on a former State Department official making a vain(?) effort to debunk the Leftist/Islamist story that has become the dominant theme—Rohingya pure as the driven snow, Buddhists bad. Don’t accept the narrative!

Here is what should matter to you!

burmese-monks-e1506120223754 (1)

Burmese monks: No fear!

According to Wrapsnet, from FY07 through FY17 the US State Department and its contractors have placed 19,189 Burmese Muslims (Rohingya) in your towns and cities!

Another 163 arrived in the last ten weeks (since October 1).

Burma is not on any travel restriction list and neither is Bangladesh! (NYC Port Authority bomber!)

What you can do: 

Write to the White House and make sure Bangladesh and Burma are singled out for extra security screening or better still for an outright ban!

Resettle Rohingya ‘refugees’ in Muslim countries where they can have a future

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 9, 2017

When I saw this opinion piece in The Hill my first thought was: oh no, not another politically correct B.S. whine-fest about the ‘plight’ of the Rohingya people of Bangladesh and Burma (aka Myanmar).

 

myanmar-monks-protest-rohingya-jan16-2014

Buddhist monks protest against the so-called Rohingya.

 

I thought I knew what was coming—that the US and other Western countries must ‘welcome’ them to our towns and cities—when I read the title of the piece by Jeff Goodson:

Resettle the Rohingya refugees where they can have a real future

But, boy was I wrong and am blown away that The Hill even published this commentary.

The Human Rights Industrial Complex (HRIC) must be having a ‘hair on fire’ moment.

Here is some of what a retired foreign service officer, with a long distinguished career, was permitted to say (emphasis is mine):

(LOL! my first tip-off that this wasn’t what I thought, was the use of the words “high dither” to describe the HRIC!)

International humanitarian and rights groups and the Muslim diaspora have been in high dither over Burma’s crackdown on Rohingya Muslims. The counterinsurgency operation, which was precipitated by Rohingya insurgent attacks in August, has so far sent 626,000 Rohingya fleeing to Bangladesh.

International players in the drama are acting perfectly in character. The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), which conducted the attacks, called itself a garden-variety ethnic insurgent group out to protect the Rohingya people against state repression. Burma declared ARSA a terrorist group, and initiated what it calls a legitimate counterinsurgency campaign against extremist Bengali terrorists. Rakhine Buddhist nationalists actively supported the army, and took their own vigilante action.

Al-Jazeera, Qatar’s official mouthpiece for spreading Salafist propaganda, called for foreign governments and international institutions to force the hand of the Suu Kyi government and hold it accountable. The oratory of the Muslim diaspora, meanwhile, quickly reached fever pitch.

[….]

If the international community really wants to do something constructive about the crisis, it will stop debating semantics and focus on permanently resettling the Rohingya refugees.

Uh oh! This is where I thought Goodson would go PC (politically correct) on me! Imagine my shock to see this prescription:

What is needed is for the U.N. and other bilateral, regional and non-state actors to start planning for permanent resettlement of the refugees in Muslim countries that already host large Rohingya populations. These are Bangladesh, now with about a million Rohingya, Pakistan with 350,000, Saudi Arabia with 200,000, Malaysia with 50,000, the UAE with 10,000 and Indonesia with 1,000. Since Pakistan and Saudi Arabia were so helpful in creating, training and arming ARSA, they will no doubt be especially welcoming to their Rohingya brothers and sisters.

[….]

All of the players in this drama are acting in character, and Burma is no different. It may be the most insurgent-prone country in the world, with 47 armed ethnic groups, and it will no doubt continue fighting this insurgency as it has fought others for the last 70 years — in this case with help from China. If it’s smart, it will stop the violence, peacefully escort the remaining Rohingya to the border with Bangladesh, and seal that border permanently.

Be still my beating heart!  Goodson wraps with this:

It’s time to end the Rohingya insurgency for good, stop the recurring humanitarian crises, and close off western Burma permanently as a potential gateway for Islamic jihad. Whatever the fate of the few hundred thousand Rohingya still remaining in Burma, the international community should stop setting its hair on fire and focus on doing what it does best: help resettle the Rohingya refugees to countries where they can have a real future.

More details from Jeff Goodson about the Rohingya situation that is already causing thousands to be placed in Your Town, USA!

Pope Francis arrives in Burma, will he use the ‘R’-word—Rohingya?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 27, 2017

We will be watching!

By the way, in Burma (aka Myanmar), the majority Buddhist population does not think the group of people referred to as Rohingya are anything more than Bangladeshi ethnics who got in to the Buddhist country from Muslim Bangladesh over decades.  That is why the word, setting them aside as some special ethnic group, should the Pope utter it, will not sit well with his hosts.

From Malta Today:

Pope Francis has arrived in Myanmar, becoming the first pope to ever visit the southeast Asian nation.

POPE MYANMAR LEADER

Pope Francis exchanges gifts with Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi who has been a greatly admired human rights activist. However, in recent years she has refused to promote the meme that the Rohingya are completely blameless in the violent clashes between Buddhists and Muslims and thus has been vilified by the Human Rights Industrial Complex.

The world’s most high-profile Christian takes center stage in a staunchly Buddhist country accused of horrifying acts of brutality against its Rohingya Muslim minority.

The Pope previously decried the violence against the Rohingya, calling them his persecuted “brothers and sisters.”

Experts warn that this trip will require balancing a uniquely complicated set of humanitarian, diplomatic and religious questions. Even his own cardinal has advised the Pope to steer clear of the word Rohingya for fear of stalling his message of reconciliation before it has even begun.

Aaron Connelly, research fellow at Australia’s Lowy Institute, said that there was little chance the Pope’s visit to Myanmar was going to be a “generic Papal visit.”

“Clearly the thing that motivated this visit was always a desire to talk about the Rohingya,” he said.

“The question is … is he going to do that in a way which is less confrontational and engages?” Connelly added. “Or is he going to say, this is outrageous, these people have a right to be in Myanmar?”

Reading almost like an afterthought, here is the last line of this news:

While Pope Francis’s stance on the Rohingya crisis will likely dominate headlines, the Pope is also expected to push for greater rights for the several million members of Myanmar’s Christian minority.

Why does all of this matter to you in America? We have already admitted nearly 20,000 Rohingya ‘refugees’ in the last ten years.  I’ll be updating numbers soon.

For more on Rohingya, see my Rohingya Reports category here with 214 previous posts.
