World Net Daily reporter, Leo Hohmann, has provided (to a much larger audience than we ever could hope to have) our recent information (here and here) that British former Foreign Secretary David Miliband, now the CEO of the largest (in dollar terms) US refugee resettlement agency, the International Rescue Committee, wants Obama to supply the contractors with the next large batch of paying “clients.”
Here is what Hohmann said yesterday, but even more interesting than the news is what the commenters are saying!
Just a few snips of what Miliband is demanding:
“First … it can raise the 70,000 cap specifically to accommodate Syrian refugees over the next two years. By historical standards, the U.S. should be committing to take around 65,000 — or 50 percent — of those identified by the U.N. for resettlement by the end of 2016.”
Miliband also requests the U.S. move at a faster pace in its screening of applicants, a process that is overseen by the Department of Homeland Security with help from the FBI.
He closed the editorial by saying: “The U.S. is in a position to help by swiftly expanding resettlement and encouraging other donor states to follow its example. The moral choice is clear.”
Please go see the whole article and see especially the comments!
Make noise please!
One commenter said this (below) in response to my request to contact your Member of Congress and US Senators. I know they have been pretty hopeless, but don’t let them off the hook. Don’t let them someday say they didn’t know! After you call or write, then write a ‘letter to the editor’ of your local paper and tell them what you told your Washington supposed representatives. Spread the news on social media and at least tell your family and friends!

What is it going to do in contacting our congressmen and women? They havent done anything to stop Obama, why would they now?
Please also write to Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas, Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, and thank him for standing firm on the security concerns about a large influx of not properly screened Syrians to America. Tell him to please stand firm!
