Expert asks: Why are refugee resettlement contracting agencies not being audited?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 28, 2015

Dan Cadman, a fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies with 30 years of service at INS/ICE, asks a question I’ve asked and many are asking around the country:  why are the federal resettlement contractors, which gobble-up millions of federal dollars every year, not being financially audited? 

Taxpayers of America have a right to know just exactly how the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, for instance, is spending our money.

Years ago I was told by a senior State Department official that financial audits of contractors just aren’t done.  They are only audited with program audits I was told—you know, like that easy to manipulate accounting about how many refugees in their care got jobs.  Things like that.

This is Bob Carey the new director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement. He came to ORR from the International Rescue Committee, a contractor. Maybe someone should ask Mr. Carey where the fiscal audits are filed especially the ones for his former employer which received over $330 million from taxpayers in one recent year! http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/orr/resource/staff-directory

According to Cadman, it is already the law that the contractors must be fiscally audited.  Any pro-bono lawyers out there?

Here is Cadman today at the Center for Immigration Studies (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum):

The Department of Justice Office of Inspector General (DOJ OIG) has issued a report on its audit of two grants funded by DOJ’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) and Office of Victims of Crime (OVC) to a Georgia entity called Tapestri, Inc., which describes its mission as “end[ing] violence and oppression in refugee and immigrant communities”, according to the report.

Though required by law, audits of immigrant and refugee-related grants are rare.

He goes on to describe that particular audit finding, then this:

OMB Circular A-133, and its accompanying yearly compliance supplements, lay out specific requirements for fiscal audits of grantees and contractors receiving federal funds across the array of cabinet departments and agencies, such as the Office of Refugee Resettlement within the Department of Health and Human Services, whose Refugee and Entrant program is governed by CFDA 93.566 for the 2015 compliance supplement.

[….]

This is the third time of late that I’ve spoken to financial issues relating to awards granted to various organizations for sheltering and protection programs of refugees, alien entrants, and sundry migrants (including unaccompanied minors and families who have crossed the border illegally). These programs that receive huge amounts of taxpayer funding (see here and here) — and by huge, I mean billions of dollars.

Yet, with the exception of the DOJ OIG, I find little evidence of audits being undertaken, despite the vast dollar amounts or the clearly articulated OMB requirements. Certainly they are not readily to be found on public websites of the various OIG offices, nor those of the offices of primary responsibility within Homeland Security or Health and Human Services.

How could this be? Why has OMB not chastised the remiss agencies? Why has the Government Accountability Office not singled them out? Is the public not entitled to know who is receiving hundreds of millions in federal dollars, and how they are being spent?

I hope this is useful information for our growing number of ‘Pockets of Resistance.’

How American is a Somali who runs for president of Somalia?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 28, 2015

This isn’t the first time a Minnesota Somali has run for president in Somalia, but it does beg the question—do people like St. Cloud resident Anab Dahir get to vote here and at the same time be a candidate to lead a foreign country?  And, do all those Somalis who have become American citizens (and some who vote who aren’t citizens!) get to vote in Somalia and here?

Shouldn’t they have to decide to which country they have loyalty?

I expect Anab Dahir has an easy time ‘campaigning’ in Minnesota, be interesting to see how she does in Somalia.

If she should win, will she go live in Somalia or govern from Minnesota?

If she goes to Somalia, doesn’t that mean that others of her countrymen should go there too?  And, in that case we sure shouldn’t be admitting NEW Somali refugees to the US.

We have admitted 6,226 Somali ‘refugees’ to the US in the first 9 months of fiscal year 2015, here.  Are they all going to vote here and in Somalia?

Just checked another US State Department data base and found out that so far in FY2015, Minnesota got 846 new Somali refugees.  437 went to Minneapolis.  St. Cloud ‘welcomed’ 189 more Somalis and St. Paul got 76.  Small numbers went to 26 other towns and cities in Minnesota.

For new readers, the UN/US State Department sent 10,000 Somalis to Minnesota over the last ten years, here.  That number does not include the over 2,000 secondary migrants that go to MN each year from other locations around the US as the Somalis build an enclave in Minnesota.

From Midnimo:

“Men have led Somalia for 25 years and they’ve never done anything,” says Anab Dahir.

Anab Dahir, a medical clinic interpreter and 42-year-old mother of six living in St. Cloud, Minnesota, came to the United States from Somalia in 1997, seeking asylum in the Chicago airport. Now an American citizen, she is active in the rapidly growing Somali community in her Midwestern state. She has become so civic-minded, in fact, that she has decided to run for office — not in the U.S., but in her birthplace. Dahir is running to become the first female president of Somalia. “Men have led Somalia for 25 years and they’ve never done anything,” she says. “Now, it’s the women’s turn.”

 Continue reading here.

I think Al-shabaab, the Islamic terrorists there, will have something to say about a woman leading the country of Somalia, don’t you?

In Minnesota, refugee resettlement characterized as form of slavery

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 27, 2015

In an interesting coincidence, yesterday we posted a guest column from ‘Idaho Patriot’ about refugee resettlement as modern-day slavery and then right on the heels of that we see the same theme echoed in Minnesota—where the ‘Pockets of Resistance’ are getting organized and expanding.

Here is an article at the Morrison County Record about a concerned private citizen who is taking his own personal time to research and speak about what he is learning.

Article entitled: Speaker in Little Falls: Illegal immigrant, refugee resettlement done as a form of slavery.

Ron-Branstner

Ron Brantsner standing in front of list of the nine major federal refugee resettlement contractors in Little Falls, MN. Photo at the Morrison County Record.

Ron Brantsner, with the former Minutemen Civil Defense volunteer border watch group, was in Little Falls July 23. He was invited to the area to speak about how corporations and volunteer agencies bring illegal immigrants and refugees to Minnesota as a form of “slavery,” to do jobs Americans wouldn’t do, for low wages.

Brantsner, formerly of Minnesota, now has a residence in California.

Invited by “a gentleman out of Little Falls,” Brantsner said, “I don’t contact anybody. People reach out to me. I don’t go solicit this, I don’t get paid for this, I don’t belong to any organizations.

“When I get invited, I’m a normal everyday citizen just livin’ the dream,” he said.

Brantsner told the group that with funding from the federal government, the volunteer agencies or “Volags” as he called them, had targeted Minnesota because of the generous welfare benefits in the state. The targeted areas were those where poultry processing plants, and meat packing plants were located, he said.

Brantsner said once illegal immigrants and refugees move into a community, its Social Services, health care and educational resources are overwhelmed, with counties and taxpayers footing the tax burden.

He went on to discuss the role of large foundation grants.  The foundations are connected with BIG MEAT working to colonize communities for their own selfish cheap labor needs.

Read it all.

Great business model isn’t it?  State and local taxpayers help pick up the tab when salaries are too low to support large immigrant families.

This post is archived in our new ‘Pockets of Resistance’ category so that others of you might know, and get inspiration, about what your fellow Americans are doing to save America!  There are many more volunteers like Ron Brantsner trying to get the word out on their own dime.  Meanwhile the pro-Open Borders side is well-funded thanks to big business, the Chamber of Commerce and Leftwing foundations.

In 2014, your tax dollars paid 97% of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops Migration Fund budget

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 25, 2015

Kevin appleby

Unless his salary is paid from the few million dollars they receive from private donors, you pay his salary to promote amnesty, more refugees, and more Unaccompanied Alien Children importation. The Bishops were a leading advocacy group in favor of so-called Comprehensive Immigration Reform which failed to pass Congress in 2013.

Last night, most interested in learning more about the US Conference of Catholic Bishop’s paid lobbyist, Kevin Appleby, who lobbies for amnesty among other things, I was pleased to find the 2014 Annual Report for the US Conference of Catholic Bishops Migration Fund.

By the way, according to Guidestar, the Bishops don’t have to file a Form 990 with the IRS because they are a “church.”  So, we can’t find out what salary and benefits package Mr. Appleby is pulling down.  Whatever happened to the separation of church and state?

Unbelievable!  Here is a link to the report, or see below as a pdf we downloaded (so it doesn’t disappear anytime soon!).

2014-MRS-Annual-Report

Go to page 3 to learn what YOU are paying for.

Now check out page 10!

Income from Federal Grants/Agreements………….$79,590,512

Travel loan Collection Fees (your money too)……$3,401,622***

Total Revenue…………………………………………………..$85,506,950

*** Refugees are required to repay their airfare, however the USCCB does the collecting and is permitted to keep a cut for themselves.  In other words, the entire amount of the travel loan is not returned to the US Treasury.

That means that YOU, US taxpayers, are funding the Bishops to the tune of 97% of their budget.

They could not exist without putting their hands into Caesar’s treasury!

I’ll have more tomorrow because I want to give this to you in little bites.

By the way, we had seen their annual report for 2012, but hadn’t seen one since. In 2014 they received around $16 million more from you than they did in 2012!  Did the record number of Unaccompanied Alien Children they encouraged to come to the southern border account for the jump in income?  We know the USCCB has been compensated for years to take care of the UACs.

Endnote:  We have written about the USCCB and its government funding on many previous occasions, but since we have so many new readers and since our friend Jim Simpson has just come out with his report on the Red-Green Axis which includes the role the Catholic Church has played in advancing the agenda of the open borders political Left, I’m looking into all this again.

Miscellaneous news about the Invasion of Europe

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 24, 2015

This is a round-up of sorts of some migration news coming out of Europe….

German refugee facilities

Deutsche Welle tells us: Google recently pulled a controversial map showing the location of all refugee homes in Germany for fear it could fuel right-wing violence. http://www.dw.com/en/attacks-against-germanys-refugee-homes-on-the-rise/a-18604812

In Sweden, Christians harassed in group home for asylum seekers. 

From the Christian Post:

Syrian Christian refugees living in Sweden say they were forced out of their asylum house by Muslim refugees who demanded they hide their crosses and banned them from using communal areas in the home they shared.

The Christians, comprised of two families, were seeking asylum after fleeing from the Islamic State in Syria. And the place they were staying at housed around 80 people with many being Syrian Muslims.

While Swedish police said they weren’t notified about the harassment, immigration officials visited the residence to outline the government’s rules for those who continue to live in asylum housing.

[….]

The violence of ISIS against Syrian Christians and other citizens who refuse to obey Islamic law knows no bounds.

The article goes on to tell us of some of the horrors facing the remaining Christian population of Syria.

Also from Sweden, see Gatestone on the ‘unaccompanied refugee children’ situation there where everyone knows the “children” are mostly young men over 18 years old.

Denmark has no more places to house refugees!

See Breitbart News:

Denmark’s capacity to admit migrants is near breaking point. With 12,000 refugees searching for a place to live, nearly a third of the nation’s struggling municipalities say that they have little to offer newcomers.

In the Czech Republic, Syrian and North African refugees are not welcome, but more Czechs willing to take in Ukrainians. 

From Ceskenoviny:

The Czech Republic should not accept any refugees from Syria, this is the view held by 71 percent of Czechs. When it comes to the refugees from North Africa, the figure stands at 72 percent.

The view that some immigrants from Syria and North Africa should be accepted is held by 26 percent and 24 percent of Czechs, respectively.

Ireland goes along with EU plan and will double its refugee intake.

From Big News Network.com:

DUBLIN, Ireland – Ireland is to more than double its intake of refugees as part of a European Union plan to relocate up to 40,000 refugees which is being coordinated in response to the unprecedented migration crisis in the Mediterranean.

Under the EU plan, a number of ‘hotspots’ in Italy and Greece will be established where migrants will be registered and fingerprinted. Individuals who are identified as likely to be genuine refugees can be put forward for relocation to another EU country where they will be given the opportunity of protection, while irregular migrants will be returned to their home country.

Ireland has agreed to relocate 600 people over the next two years. This is in addition to the country’s previous commitment to resettle 520 refugees directly from areas affected by conflict, and the humanitarian search and rescue missions undertaken in the region by the Naval Service which saved more than 3,300 refugees.

The Slovak government: we will only take Christian refugees as permanent residents.

From the Slovak Spectator:

THE SLOVAK government remains reluctant to take in refugees within the proposed European schemes and has recently conceded to accept 100 people from Syria under the condition they are Christians, but has agreed to provide temporary shelter for migrants that have already arrived in Austria.

Based on a recent bilateral deal, some 500 refugees seeking asylum in Austria will stay in Slovakia temporarily, until their asylum process is finished and, based on the results, they will either move back to Austria or be deported from the EU.

In Germany there is more news accusing “rightwingers” of torching asylum facilities.

From Deutsche Welle:

The rate of violence perpetrated against refugee homes in Germany in 2015 has already outstripped the whole of 2014. The Interior Ministry has warned that right-wing violence is on the rise in the west of the country.

[….]

According to a statement from Germany’s Interior Ministry on Thursday, there have been more attacks on homes for asylum seekers in the first half of 2015 than in the entirety of 2014.

Read the article, there is an admission that a growing number of these cases are perpetrated by people with no known affiliation. Hmmm! Is that what happens when a government is so obviously not responsive to a large number of its citizens? By the way, the article also tells us that these arson attacks were originally confined to the Eastern parts of Germany, but have now spread into the West.  Fascinating that we hear nothing of this in the US media.

I’m sure there is much more news from Europe.  If I see something interesting as the day goes on, I’ll add it.

Twin Falls, Idaho: College board (supporting refugee resettlement) limits free speech at recent meeting

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 22, 2015

News from a “Pocket of Resistance” to more federal government colonization of towns throughout America…..

Here is the latest from MagicValley.com *** the publication that sent a threatening letter to RRW and editorialized against us recently.

The College of Southern Idaho houses a refugee resettlement program.

One of the favorite techniques used to tamp down resistance to refugee resettlement was apparently on display at a recent Board meeting of the College of Southern Idaho (which houses and supports a refugee resettlement contractor).   They don’t want to hear the opposition, so they come up with methods to silence speech.

From local reporter, Julie Wootton, here is how the story begins.  But be sure to read the whole thing because this publication wants to be sure you visit them to see their paid ads and so forth (emphasis is mine):

TWIN FALLS • A crowd showed up Monday to a College of Southern Idaho meeting to voice opinions about the Refugee Center program.

It’s the third month community members have come in droves to a board of trustees meeting.

Board chairman Karl Kleinkopf told the crowd of more than 50 people that it’s board policy that those who have spoken within the last six months would be moved to the end of the list of speakers.

He set a time cap of 30 minutes for the public forum due to the “tremendous amount of new business.” This is the first time the board has set a time limit for a public forum.

One commenter who did get to speak was Terry Edwards who said the program is costly, secretive and puts the community at risk.  That about says it!

Note to ‘Pockets,’ you don’t have to always play in their sandbox!

Go on the offense! Why not call for a public meeting and invite all the players!    Invite the US State Department, the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement (in HHS), the major federal resettlement contractors (and their subcontractors) operating in Boise and Twin Falls, and the Idaho Office of Refugees/Jannus Inc.

Don’t forget to include elected officials at the city and state level who support the program, ask them to come to a public forum in order to answer the many questions citizens have.  Maybe CSI would offer a free auditorium for the evening because surely they would like all the facts reported to the public.  Surely, the elected officials and ‘stakeholders’ have nothing to hide!

Ask those who advocate bringing more UN-chosen refugees to Idaho to answer all of the public’s questions about how the program is run, who is coming to Idaho, what industries are seeking cheap immigrant labor, what will the resettlement cost be to local and state taxpayers, how are the refugees screened (for health problems and security concerns), what might the impact be on housing for Idaho’s own poor and disabled people, what will the impact be on the local health department, how many children are now going into the school system and how many are projected for the future, etc.

Let those who support the program make their case IN PUBLIC.  But, organizers, be sure that all questions are asked and answered if it takes all night!

This post is filed in our new “Pockets of Resistance” category to inform those of you forming ‘pockets’ where you live of what others are doing!

We first heard that phrase— pockets of resistance—(coined by the federal government to refer to us who want transparency!) at an Office or Refugee Resettlement meeting in Lancaster, PA in June 2013, here.  It is the same meeting where we heard that the “NEW Americans” are “seedlings” being purposefully planted in the “soil” of your communities.

Obama’s illegal ‘refugee’ resettlement program for Central American ‘children’ up and running

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 22, 2015

The Obama Administration is writing refugee law with its new Central American Minors “refugee” resettlement plan.  And, apparently Congress is unwilling to defend its power under the Constitution. So what else is new!

The “children” won’t need to ride in on top of a train. We are flying them in just as we do refugees from around the world. http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2015/02/09/immigration-officials-announce-an-in-country-refugee-parole-program-for-central-american-minors

This so-called Central American Minors Refugee/Parole Program (known as CAM) has simply rewritten the definition of the word refugee.  Legitimate refugees are by international law and US law supposed to be able to prove they have been persecuted for one of several reasons—religion, political view, membership in certain groups, and race.

People looking to improve their economic condition are not refugees!    See my earlier post here for more.

This is a good article at Newsday, focused mostly on the NY, Long Island area but it gives us some useful updated information.  Thanks to reader Chris for sending it.

There is also a map which shows where the tens of thousands of ‘children’ (mostly teenage boys) were distributed around the US in the last year or so.

Ostensibly the program is meant to stem the illegal invasion of the border, but it isn’t.  It is really, in my view, meant to expand the definition of ‘refugees’ and eventually, I predict, it will be available to other poor people in other third world hellholes way beyond Central America.

I’ve snipped just a small amount of the article, but there is much more so please read the whole thing!

Hundreds of Central American children are seeking to come to Long Island and other parts of the nation on a new path carved by President Barack Obama for minors “at risk of harm” in their home countries, according to a federal agency and a local resettlement group.

Children from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala who prove they are fleeing danger will be placed on flights to airports where their parents will meet them. The number coming will be limited by the program’s rules, as well as yearly quotas for refugees from Latin America and the Caribbean, officials said.

Refugee contractors monopolize the program!

Rep. Peter King, chairman of important House Homeland Security subcommittee is OK with this illegal expansion of refugee law!

In this next section we get further evidence that this program is also a boon to our usual cabal of ‘non-profit’ resettlement contractors because they are PAID to process the children.  One is not even permitted to use other help to process in one’s children, applications must go through groups like Catholic Charities!

Newsday continues:

As of June, about 200 petitions had been filed under the new initiative by immigrants seeking to legally bring their children to Long Island — mostly from El Salvador — and another 200 were waiting to file their requests, said Carmen Maquilon, immigrant refugee services director at Catholic Charities in Amityville. The nonprofit is the only group authorized in Nassau and Suffolk counties to file those requests for admission as refugees or immigration parole recipients with the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program.

[…]

Applications reported

The U.S. Department of State, which administers the new program for minors, reported receiving 1,385 individual applications from throughout the United States as of June 8 — 1,139 for children in El Salvador, 21 for children in Guatemala and 225 for children in Honduras. The agency did not say how many of the applications were from New York.

So much for help from Congress!

U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford), whose district includes communities where many immigrants’ kids have resettled, said he is not opposed to the refugee program.

 More here.

Investigation needed!

Back in 2013, the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (one of nine federal resettlement contractors) sent a delegation to Central America and returned to write a report that predicted that 60,000 unaccompanied alien children would flood our southern border in 2014.  They hit the number almost exactly on the head.  I’ve wondered ever since if they were good guessers or if they actually went to Central America and LIT THE FUSE on the invasion.   Here is one post where I mention my theory.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if some investigative reporter dug into what happened on that Bishops’ trip in 2013!

By the way, the Catholic Charities office mentioned in the Newsday article is a subcontractor of the USCCB.

All of our posts on the illegal alien ‘children’ going back many years, are archived with the phrase ‘unaccompanied minors.‘  Today, I primarily use the phrase ‘unaccompanied alien children.’

Bhutanese refugees in Ohio need more costly mental health care due to high suicide rate

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 21, 2015

There is nothing new in this story from the The Columbus Dispatch.  We have reported ad nauseum about the high suicide rate among Bhutanese (really Nepali) refugees first admitted during the Bush Administration.  Even before Bush’s Asst. Secretary of State for Population Refugees and Migration, Ellen Sauerbrey, gave the go-ahead to resettle 60,000 from UN camps (the UN wanted to close the camps so we said sure! and now we are up to over 80,000 Bhutanese scattered across America) we learned that the Bhutanese really preferred to live in their own culture in their part of the world.

The “Bhutanese” are really Nepali people who had lived in Bhutan. Bhutan expelled them and Nepal didn’t want them back. So, why was it in our national interest to bring over 80,000 to America? It was a Bush Administration decision. Did the Republicans want to import more cheap labor?

See our huge archive on the Bhutanese (mostly Hindu) migration to America by clicking here.   It goes back nearly eight years to a time when the Bhutanese did not want to be “scattered to the four winds.”

For all of you contemplating ‘welcoming’ refugees to your towns and cities, remember that health care/mental health care costs will be borne by state and local taxpayers.

From The Columbus Dispatch  (hat tip: Julie).  What is going on in Ohio that there is so much immigration and refugee news coming out of the state (see our Ohio archive)?  A suspicious person might think that Ohio was somehow being targeted for colonization!

So they recently surveyed 200 members of the Nepali-speaking Hindu minority who had fled the Himalayan mountain kingdom of Bhutan a quarter-century ago during an ethnic cleansing led by the Buddhist elite.

What they discovered shocked them.

Bhutanese refugees in central Ohio are twice as likely to report thinking about suicide as are those elsewhere in the U.S. They have high rates of anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress and report that they smoke and use alcohol more frequently than other Bhutanese refugees.
“It’s a serious wake-up call,” said Surendra Bir Adhikari, an administrator for the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services who led the research project.

[….]

Between October 2008 and September 2014, 5,654 Bhutanese were resettled in Ohio, including 1,738 in Franklin County. The total population is larger because of the family members and others who have arrived in the state from other parts of the U.S.

Local leaders of the Bhutanese community estimate the total population at close to 20,000, but state officials think it is lower. In 2012, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the suicide rate among Bhutanese refugees resettled in America was 20.3 per 100,000 people. That’s nearly twice the rate among the general U.S. population and higher than the global suicide rate of 16.9 percent.

No jobs and yet we keep the refugee flow coming!  Look at the Ohio numbers on this map!

Besides facing language and religious barriers, refugees worry about loved ones and friends left behind. And there’s often a disconnect between their idyllic views of life in America and the difficulties they encounter finding jobs that pay well.

[….]

Much more needs to be done to address the social isolation, substance abuse and trauma experienced by refugees and immigrants, local and state officials say.

They want “mental-health first-aid training” offered to help identify, understand and respond to signs of addiction and mental illnesses in refugees. They’d like to see more health-care systems provide both medical and mental-health services under one roof to lessen the stigma.

There is more, continue reading here.

Caspar Star Tribune: Republican Governor wants to bring Third World refugees to Wyoming!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 19, 2015

Matt Mead

Gov. Matt Mead wants to diversify the Cowboy state by bringing in poverty!

….or else he would let this idea go after the blowback he got last year!

So, here we go again!

Leftwing newspapers in places like Wyoming don’t know what the h*** they are talking about as they editorialize in favor of refugee resettlement by the UN/US State Department by saying they only want the facts to be known.

Sure, but only the facts that support their wish to bring in the third world and put them on welfare in Wyoming. Right?

They even admit here in the editorial at the Caspar Star Tribune on Friday that there aren’t enough low-paying jobs!

As I said here recently, I want Mead to tell his citizens why he is so hell-bent on inviting the federal government to Wyoming to begin changing the people.

Caspar Star Tribune:

It’s time for action on refugees.

Gov. Matt Mead wants a realistic, fact-based discussion on whether Wyoming should have a resettlement program. Of the 50 states, we’re the only one that doesn’t have such an initiative.

What we do have now, regardless of a program, is a refugee population. They are already here. They have come to Wyoming looking for sanctuary and a fresh beginning, and we should do what we can to help. They want to be part of life in the Cowboy State.

Are we the most ideal state for resettlement? Probably not. For instance, Wyoming doesn’t have many city bus systems or entry-level jobs, both of which are often needed by new arrivals from war-torn regions. Our small, rural population is an obstacle as well. We probably wouldn’t see a high proportion of refugees. Does that mean we shouldn’t have a program that could help people who need it? Of course it doesn’t.

Continue reading here….. There are only 4 comments so far!

I’ll be watching to see how they propose to get the “facts” out and who they invite to Wyoming to provide those “facts.”

We have an extensive archive on Republican Governor Matt Mead’s quest to make Wyoming the 50th state to “welcome” refugees from Somalia, Iraq, Syria, Burma, Uzbekistan, DR Congo and Afghanistan (and that is a short list!).

Let’s have a look at Ohio!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 18, 2015

On Monday I’ll be talking to a group in Ohio and so for those folks I’ve gathered some information on a state that seems to be newly targeted by Obama’s friends at Welcoming America.  I first told you about that here in July 2013, and again here yesterday.

Top resettlement cities are Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Dayton, Toledo and Akron.

Ohio numbers….

Ohio has been receiving over 2,000 refugees a year since 2012, and all told in the last ten years it received 21,230.  (See data base here.)  I was surprised to find it that high.  For comparison Delaware hardly gets any (zero in 2014) and Texas is getting over 7,000 a year.

In fiscal year 2014, Ohio received the 7th highest number of refugees in the country. 

The Obama Administration and the politically Far Left federal resettlement contractors probably recognize the electoral value of Ohio, so they want to make sure it becomes a reliably Democrat-voting state.

The states higher on the 2014 list than Ohio (2,815) in the last fiscal year are in descending order:  Texas, California, New York, Michigan, Florida and Arizona.

In the ten year analysis, the Bhutanese (6,607) saw the highest number of their ethnic group settled in Ohio followed by Somalis (5,611). Iraqis were next with 2,617.  Remember though that especially with the Somalis, Ohio likely saw the Somali number increase more rapidly as secondary migrants (resettled elsewhere in the US) went to mostly Columbus to join their fellow Somalis to establish a large Somali enclave there. The secondary migrants are not reflected in that 5,611 number.

The years with the highest number of Somalis resettled were 2005 and 2006 (Bush years!).

Most Somalis were resettled in Columbus (over 4,700 of the over 5,000) with Cleveland getting 322 directly resettled there from Africa.  But, interestingly 21 other towns and cities got Somalis, albeit in smaller numbers.

Remember the Columbus subsidized housing riot in 2012!  How would you like to see this in your home town?

The resettlement contractors and cities they are colonizing…

For new readers there are nine major federal contractors.  Five of the nine dominate Ohio.  Here is a handy list to find their contact information. (The ORR list is not just for Ohio, but for the whole country.)

US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants works in Akron, Cleveland

US Conference of Catholic Bishops works in Cleveland, Cincinatti and Dayton

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society works in Cleveland, Columbus, and Toledo

Church World Service is in Columbus

World Relief is in Columbus

Go here for all of the posts we have written on Ohio over the years.  They had a recent terrorist arrest case there (Somali of course!).

And be sure to see my previous post on employment outcomes for refugees.  Ohio’s employment numbers are pretty abysmal!
