Ronald Reagan was NOT responsible for Refugee Act of 1980; fake news from The Salt Lake Trib

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 10, 2018

No wonder people can’t trust the big print media anymore.

Don’t mainstream media outlets have some responsibility to fact check letters to the editor or can anyone just make up ‘facts’ from history, that are very easy to check, and just throw them out there for the gullible public?

esar met head shot

I looked for a photo of Eric Goldman, but there are too many political activists with that name, but heck, why not illustrate this story with this refugee convicted murderer from Burma resettled in Utah by Catholic Charities or the International Rescue Committee.

Before I get to the letter from someone named Eric Goldman, let me say that there was a time that I wrote in glowing terms about the reporting from The Salt Lake Tribune and that was when they did super reporting on the horrific rape and murder of Hser Ner Moo, a little Christian Burmese refugee, by a fellow refugee from Burma (a likely Rohingya) named Esar Met.

The Salt Lake Tribune actually sent a reporter to the camps in Thailand to get the full story.  But, that was before the Mormon church had drunk the koolaide on the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program and began enthusiastically welcoming refugees of all stripes to Utah.

Click here for all of my posts on this Utah murder case that was never thoroughly reported on a national level, but see what a good job the Trib did in its coverage.

(I think it was never widely reported because Esar Met didn’t fit the media image of a refugee—lovable, grateful and hardworking.)

Now back to my beef today with The Salt Lake Tribune…..

Facebook on the hunt to remove nationalist Burmese patriot monks from their platform

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 10, 2018

Burma is a Buddhist country and the Buddhists want to keep it that way.

That is the long and short of the battle between nationalist patriot monks and the Rohingya Muslim minority that has been increasingly aggressive in pushing for what they see as their rights.

 

monks in Burma

Angry monks fighting for their country and their religion!

 

Of course, the global Left is on the side of the Rohingya and therefore so is Facebook!

I’ve been following the Rohingya controversy for over ten years and the Rohingya are far from being pure as the driven snow having instigated many of the violent conflicts between the government and themselves which has played out in rural villages, but you would never know that to hear the mainstream media spine.

So now we learn that Facebook is hunting for monks on their platform in order to silence them and keep them from going around the biased media with their side of the story.

Burma (aka Myanmar) is far away. Why should Americans care?

Under Trump, Muslim refugees from Burma (Rohingya) are numero uno

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 3, 2018

I told you the other day that we had a slight increase in the number of refugees entering the US in the month of May.  The number is still way below what the refugee contractors*** need to assure that their federally funded budgets are flush with your involuntary contributions via Washington.

Today I checked Wrapsnet (FY18 data) for the Muslim refugee numbers and learned this:

The percentage of Muslims entering as refugees is way down compared to Bush and Obama years.  It now stands at 15% when it was approaching 50% under Barack Hussein Obama.

(Total admissions so far 14,321 and 2,184 are listed as Muslims of some sect or another.)

But….

 

Rohingya refugees mostly women

See my Rohingya Reports category with 224 previous posts:   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/category/rohingya-reports/

 

…much to my surprise I see that Burmese Muslims (Rohingya) top the list!

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.

Don’t miss this post about Church World Service yesterday.

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.
