St. Cloud propaganda program: Why you should hire a Somali, or is it really, why you shouldn’t!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 30, 2015

Just as the chaos was coming to a head at Tech High School in St. Cloud over the last ten days or so, a couple of employment specialists held a seminar on hiring St. Cloud Somalis (they are more mature we are told).

As you read this see if you react the way I did!  Note in this politically correct “news” story at the St. Cloud Times it is all about how YOU must adjust to Somalis and their Islamic ‘faith’ and nothing about how Somalis must learn to live in America and assimilate!   (Go back and look at that Christian Science Monitor article from Kenya I just posted where all the compromise must come from the infidel side and none from the Muslim side of the supposed goal of “coexisting.”)

Kathy doesn’t get it as she promotes the quiet jihad. Stearns-Benton Employment and Training Council Director Kathy Zavala gave tips on how to interact with Somalis. How about the tips for Somalis on how to interact with Americans? Photo: http://www.ifound.org/initiative-quarterly/whos-hiring-who/jump-start/

The St. Cloud Times reporter, Vicki Ikeogu, apparently doesn’t see what I see!

Members of the St. Cloud business community had the opportunity to learn about Somali culture and workforce at Thursday’s East African Presentation and Job Fair.

The two-hour joint presentation by Language Bank Operations Manager Abdul Kulane and Stearns-Benton Employment and Training Council Director Kathy Zavala provided employers with basic knowledge about Somali people and tips on how to interact with this growing population.

What the heck does this mean?  Somalis will help “connect us to the world economy?” 

You know they say this stuff as if they are dispensing words of wisdom?  What world economy?  Do they mean Somalis send the money they receive from America out of the country and to Somalia as remittances?  How does that help Americans?

“The bottom line opportunity is immigrants are financial contributors, entrepreneurs, workers and consumers and help connect us to the world economy,” Zavala said.

Zavala said approximately 6 percent of people living in St. Cloud are foreign born, with over 25 percent of foreign-born citizens coming from Africa. [So what is the unemployment rate among the foreign-born in St. Cloud and the American-born in St. Cloud?  I’d like to know!—ed]

“If you look at the demographics, we need to understand where our workforce is coming from and how they can contribute to our economy in order to sustain our community,” Zavala said.  [We can’t do it without Somalis?—ed]

This section should have a subheading:  Why you shouldn’t hire a Somali Muslim!

They don’t want anyone looking over their shoulder as they work:

Kulane said for many Somalis, being entrusted with a job has a religious connotation as well. According to social norms, some Somalis do not like someone watching over their shoulder, he said. In Somali culture, it signals a lack of confidence in their abilities.

The women won’t be making eye contact or shaking your hand:

Cultural interactions such as eye contact and handshaking were also discussed.

Religion is most important to them and they will want special break times during work to practice their ‘religion’ (get used to it!).  And, there is a special way you must communicate with these special people:

A brief introduction to Islam was provided, allowing for employers to learn about the importance of prayer and fasting to many Somali people. There were tips for starting a conversation with the Somali workers on these topics.

Just imagine the hell that would break loose if there were job seminars like this one and employers were told how to converse with Catholics and Jews about their religion on the job!

See our extensive St. Cloud archive here.  Thank the Lutherans!

And one more thing!  Did you see this short news story about a 19-year-old Somali high school student who threatened to attack a Tech High security guard in an incident unrelated (we are told) to the demonstration that happened the same day!

A St. Cloud man was arrested Wednesday afternoon at St. Cloud Technical High School after he pushed and threatened to assault a school security employee, according to St. Cloud Police.

Police officers were called to the school at 1:52 p.m. after a report that Redwan Mahamed Shire, 19, had become disorderly, authorities said. Police say the incident does not appear to be related to a protest that was going on at the same time outside the school.

Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota is responsible for the Somali chaos in St. Cloud

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 26, 2015

If you are angry (about the tension in St. Cloud) and want one entity to blame, it is Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota, the primary federal refugee resettlement agency working in St. Cloud!

That supposedly ‘Christian’ charitable organization is directly responsible for the high Somali numbers in St. Cloud, and they are jointly responsible for bringing over ten thousand Somalis from around the world to colonize Minnesota towns in the last ten years alone—Catholic Charities and World Relief MN (now Arrive Ministries)*** helped also.  Of course they have brought many more than 10,000 in over two decades and not just Somali Muslims!

Rumor has it that 1,500 new Somalis are going to be resettled by the Lutherans in St. Cloud this year.  (This is part of former Rep. Michele Bachmann’s district!)

Doing well by doing good? Jodi Harpstead is making over $300,000 a year to seed St. Cloud and other Minnesota towns with Somali Muslims.

These three ‘Christian’ phony non-profits (phony Christians!) could stop the US State Department’s further seeding of the state if they just said NO!  We won’t resettle any more Muslim ‘refugees.’   But they don’t!  Why?

Why? Because it is big business (as we learned from Lutherans in New England)!  They dare not challenge their sugar daddy—the federal government!  And, they must be afraid of the growing power of the Islamists and the Islamist front group—Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)—which they are responsible for unleashing on the city of St. Cloud.

So how much money does it take to buy the Lutherans?

Back in 2013 we told you that then Minnesota Lutheran CEO, Mark Peterson, was pulling down a salary of $441,767.

We went to a recent audit linked on their website and here are some numbers we found (audit ending September 30, 2014):

They had total revenue of $103,135,439 and received $91,887,312 from GOVERNMENT FEES AND GRANTS.  (Go here and click on ‘financials’ to see for yourself).

That makes them 89% government funded!  That is a government agency not a charity, and surely not a ‘Christian’ charity!

The progressive ‘religious Left’ is living off of the US taxpayer!

Doing well by doing good?

Salaries and payroll accounted for $57,929,172 of your money—your tax dollars for that one year!

Jodi doesn’t pull down a salary as high as Peterson (LOL! War on women?) her predecessor did, but it is fairly substantial none-the-less as we learned from a recent Form 990.  She was compensated with $280,812 and an additional $42,495 came from related organizations (whatever that is!).

Her second in command, Kenneth Borle, made $202,087 and $33,192 (from related organizations).

They have 8 other employees making over six-figure salaries!

Go here for the others in leadership at Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota responsible for building the aggressive and demanding Muslim population of the state.

And if you are looking for more people to blame for what is happening to Minnesota, here is the Board of Directors (do you know any of them?):

Midwestern towns trying to cope with large numbers of refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 23, 2015

I’m speechless!  After years of reading one fluffy-puffy piece after another about refugees seeing their first snow, we are beginning to see major mainstream publications (Christian Science Monitor in this case) reporting on the struggle small towns are having with the huge numbers of refugees the US State Department and its contractors*** are dispersing across America.

Pay attention Spartanburg, SC and any other town contemplating “welcoming” refugees!

The NYT might still be hiding the source of the influx by not reporting on the refugee program, but other media is not so deceptive.  By the way, I expect every person who read the NYT story yesterday, scratched their heads and wondered how so many Somalis got here!

From the Christian Science Monitor entitled, ‘For small-town America, new immigrants pose linguistic, cultural challenges:’

In 2012, Burmese children drowned near Marshalltown resettlement site. http://forefugees.com/2012/07/07/three-karenni-children-drown-iowa-river-in-marshalltown-iowa/

 

Marshalltown, Iowa — The voice was frantic – and unintelligible to the 911 dispatcher. “Ma’am, I cannot understand you,” she said. After 80 seconds, one word leapt out: “Riverview.”

On a warm July evening in 2012, while Marshalltown, Iowa, celebrated Independence Day, three refugee children from Myanmar (Burma) drowned in the Iowa River. The drownings at Riverview Park cast a grim light on the challenges facing both the city and its newest immigrants, most of whom spoke little English and had scant understanding of life in their new home – including the perils, known to more established residents, of the river’s treacherous currents. [Where was their resettlement contractor which should have been assimilating the refugees to their new home?–ed]

“Many towns are struggling to cope!”

For two decades, rural communities across the Midwest have been finding ways to absorb Latino immigrants. Now, a new generation of immigrants arriving from far-flung places such as Myanmar, Somalia, Iraq, and West Africa has brought a bewildering variety of cultures and languages. Many towns are struggling to cope.

Again, speechless, a reference to the meatpackers wanting refugee labor (see our 2008 post about Clinton bring Bosnians to Iowa for the meatpackers):

Experts say the changing face of immigration in the rural Midwest reflects stricter federal enforcement. Tighter border security has slowed the influx of immigrants from Latin America entering the United States illegally. Meanwhile, the meatpacking industry has looked to refugees, who enjoy legal status, as a way of avoiding problems with undocumented Hispanic workers.

By the way, they don’t say it here, but due to a Clinton Executive Order that Bush did not rescind, local governments (you the taxpayers!) or any agency getting any federal funding is required to supply interpreters for the myriad languages and dialects the refugees bring to your town!

Much of the difficulty surrounding the new immigration is linguistic. Language barriers complicate services from law enforcement to health care. Ms. Beach recalls a school expulsion hearing that required two interpreters – the first to translate from one dialect of Myanmar to another, the second to translate into English.

See Ten Things your town needs to know before ‘welcoming’ refugees.   See also our archive on ‘Meatpackers changing the face of small town America’ with their insatiable appetite for cheap labor.

*** Nine major federal contractors. Go here for a list of all the State Department subcontractors working in a town near you!

Tensions grow in Saint Cloud, MN as more Somalis move in with help of Lutherans

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2015

Update March 30th:  I think the St. Cloud Times is helping with the propaganda campaign with this report on why Somalis make wonderful employees (not!).

Update March 26th:  More on who is to blame—Lutheran Social Service of Minnesotago here to see what you can do!

Update March 24th:  Now the agitation begins in earnest as CAIR arrives on the scene, here.

A few years ago Saint Cloud, MN was targeted as a new Somali resettlement site by the US State Department and its contractor there— Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota.

Originally the Somalis there were what the refugee industry calls “secondary migrants” who move in from other areas of the state or from another state—usually because they hear that an enclave of their kind of people is growing, sometimes for jobs, and sometimes for better welfare.

A group of students in protest walked out of classes Wednesday at Technical High School. (Photo: Jason Wachter, jwachter@stcloudtimes.com)

St. Cloud’s Somali population is now growing as Somalis are arriving directly from hot spots around the world.  (The direct resettlement by the Lutherans to St. Cloud began in around 2010.)

See how the US State Department and its contractors (Lutheran, Catholic and Evangelical contractors) have salted (seeded!) over 6o towns in Minnesota with Somalis in the last ten years!

So is it any surprise that diversity is not beautiful and tensions are building between Somali students and African American and white students in places like Tech High here this past Wedesday?

From St. Cloud Times (hat tip:  Joanne via Bare Naked Islam):

Ethinic tension inside Technical High School became public spectacle Wednesday on its south lawn as more than 100 students and parents, most of them Somali, protested what they described as a pattern of bullying and discrimination to which school officials have not adequately responded.

The protest started shortly before noon. Protesters, including students and parents, chanted slogans and waved posters.

Read all about it here.

Pay attention new proposed resettlement sites like Spartanburg, SC!   You do not want a resettlement agency to open in your town!  See our Ten things your town needs to know!

We have resettled 3,944 Somalis to the US in the first five months of fiscal year 2015 alone!

Why is it the US’s responsibility to continue to admit Somalis—something we have been doing for decades?

According to the US State Department’s handy list of contractors the Lutheran resettlement agency in St. Cloud is here:

LIRS
MN-LIRS-08: Lutheran Social Services Of Minnesota
Address:
22 Wilson Avenue Suite 110
St. Cloud, MN 56302

Obama’s new program to create ‘refugees’ in Central America to be discussed in teleconference later this month

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2015

These are the train routes taken by the “children” last summer. Obama’s new plan is supposedly designed to keep the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ off the trains and put them into planes (airfare paid by you) with direct flights to cities across America. Map here: http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/mexicans-blame-americans-for-death-train/

 

 

The federal government is inviting you to a teleconference later this month to answer questions about the plan to bring kids directly from Central America to the US as refugees which then (as newly-minted refugees) will have all forms of welfare available to them, can bring family in later and become US citizens.   We told you about it in February.

Note that the media is not invited!

Dear Stakeholder,

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), in coordination with the U.S. Department of State (DOS), invites you to participate in a teleconference on Tuesday, March 31, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. (Eastern) to learn more about the Central American Minors (CAM) Refugee/Parole Program. The program provides certain children in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras with a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are undertaking to the United States.

 

The CAM program began accepting applications from qualifying parents in the U.S. for their children on December 1, 2014. Only certain qualifying parents who are legally present in the U.S. are eligible to file for their children. Each qualified child must be unmarried, under the age of 21, and residing in El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. In certain cases, the in-country parent of the qualifying child may also qualify for access if the in-country parent is the legal spouse of the qualifying parent in the U.S.

 

During this teleconference, representative from USCIS and DOS will provide an overview of the CAM program and answer questions.

 

To Join the Session by Phone

On the day of the session, please use the information below to join the teleconference.
We recommend that you call 10-15 minutes before the start time.

Ireland turns down some Syrian refugees due to enormous anticipated medical costs

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 21, 2015

As theInvasion of Europe continues, Irish hospitals seem to have some common sense.

From the Irish Times:

At the time of this report, Germany said they will take 20,000 Syrians and the US said we will take an “open-ended number.” Now we know the US State Department is shooting for 2,000 before Sept. 30th of this year. Chart here: http://www.thejournal.ie/syrian-refugees-ireland-2-1565934-Jul2014/

A number of refugees due for resettlement in Ireland have been diverted to other countries after the Health Service Executive said they would not be offered medical treatment here.

In five cases involving programme refugees since 2011, the HSE when asked to provide treatment in the Irish health service did not do so, it has confirmed. “The HSE reviews the medical details of these people before they travel. In cases where treatment was not offered in Ireland, it was felt that it was not in the best interest of the applicant. These cases are then referred to another country for consideration,” a spokeswoman said.

Over the same period, it has treated 15 programme refugees with medical needs and it hopes to treat five more this year.

Remember!  It is the UN that is calling the shots and putting pressure on western countries to take refugees.

Programme refugees have been invited to live here by the State under the auspices of the UN Refugee Agency’s Resettlement Programme.

Almost 280 programme refugees from various countries were received by Ireland between 2011 and 2014.

According to the HSE, 90 Syrian refugees were resettled in this country since October 2014. A further 220 refugees are expected to arrive in 2015 and in 2016.

Syrian Muslim refugees headed to Indianapolis: to build Obama seed community?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 21, 2015

This is a really informative news report from reporter Gretchen Frazee at Indiana Public Media.  The story begins with a warm introduction to a Syrian family which has just arrived in Indianapolis with the help of federal resettlement contractor Exodus Refugee Immigration which is a subcontractor of both Church World Service and Episcopal Migration Ministries (two of the big nine contractors).

You can read the warm and fuzzy part yourselves, then this (emphasis is mine):

The U.S. began bringing in Syrian refugees in October and expects to allow in a total of 2,000 by the end of the fiscal year.  [This fiscal year ends September 30th, 2015. Yesterday we learned that the contractors are pushing Obama to raise the ceiling for Syrians.—ed]

One of the pressing questions we have (and most readers concerned for their towns have) is how is a town or city chosen to be the next resettlement site for a group of new refugees.

We are told that one reason Indianapolis was chosen is that the Islamic Society of North America is nearby (ahhhhh!).

Carleen Miller, Executive Director Exodus Refugee Immigration: “This year the number will be small…then their relatives will come and then their relatives will come.”

The State Department normally sends refugees to cities where they have friends or family. But Lababidi and Alhamoud didn’t know anyone in the U.S., so the government used a kind of formula to determine which location had the resources to best meet their needs.  The department determined that place was Indiana.  [I sure would like to see this formula!—ed]

“The main thing is that refugees go to a place that’s welcoming, that has a cost of living they can survive in, that has employment and opportunities,” says Carleen Miller, the executive director of Exodus Refugee Immigration, which is handling Syrian families’ resettlement in Indianapolis.

She points out that the Islamic Society of North America is based just outside of Indianapolis in Plainfield. There is also a mosque which many Syrians attend in Fishers and a group of Christian Syrians at a nearby church.

“There are people who are interested in Syrians in our city, so it makes for a good environment for them to be successful,” Miller says.

Then there is a very long section on security concerns.

Regular readers know that the FBI testified in Congress a few weeks ago that it was virtually impossible to properly screen the Syrians.

Exodus Refugee Immigration has resettled three Syrian refugee families in Indianapolis so far.

Miller calls the process long and arduous.

“The U.S. has the most rigorous screening process where they do at least five security checks on refugees coming into the country,” she says.

Syrians are also receiving additional scrutiny, although State Department officials aren’t saying exactly what that is.

“It’s a hard balance to strike,” says former Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Indiana, who served as chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Select Committee to Investigate Covert Arms Transactions with Iran.

“You want to welcome these people into this country and into the state, but at the same time you want to be careful about it. You want to trust, but you want to verify,” Hamilton says.

The cause for concern and an extra watchful eye is the threat of radicals who might try to enter the U.S. as refugees. Even while most people acknowledge the vast majority of people applying for refugee status are harmless and are in a real need of help, the small possibility of extremists trying to get into the U.S. via refugee status is raising questions.

[….]

“If it’s a very young person, a child, you probably don’t need to follow that person closely,” he says. “An elderly person, likewise. The people you really have to keep your eye on, to be blunt about it, are young men. They’re not exclusively the problem, but they’re the overwhelming part of the problem.”

Oh, yeh, I bet the Islamic Society of North America and CAIR aren’t going to like this!

Hamilton says that’s why police must keep tabs on refugees after they enter the country — often through random checks of the places they frequent, such as the churches or mosques they attend — but he is quick to reiterate that in the overwhelming majority of cases, refugees are hard working people who simply want to make a better life for themselves and their families.  [Definitely keep an eye on those Christian terrorists!—ed]

Spartanburg, SC and every town in America faced with “welcoming” refugees pay attention to this.  Never truer words were said:  Obama seed community will grow!

The U.S. cannot say how many more Syrians might come to Indiana specifically, but service providers are doing their best to prepare because refugee populations tend to build on each other.

“This year the number will be small and it may grow as we get a few families, and then their relatives will come and then their relatives will come,” Miller says.

Read this whole article I’ve only snipped some of the news that interested me.  There is a discussion about refugee mental health and about how the Burmese have overwhelmed Fort Wayne, Indiana—from refugee resettlement and from secondary migration.

Several years ago former Indiana Senator Richard Lugar obtained a GAO Report on the problem of refugee overload to towns and cities and it appears to have been just an exercise in futility as it appears to have been simply thrown down a rat hole.

Go here for our archive on Indiana.  We have published many posts on problems in the state.  We first became aware of those problems when the Health Department in Fort Wayne was overwhelmed with refugee TB cases in 2007.

An afterthought:  Check out the contractors most recent Form 990 here.  They took in $2,120,954 and only $237,255 might have come from non-taxpayer funds (p. 9).  Remember this is a business, it is not funded by passing the plate at church on Sunday!

Megyn Kelly and Gov. Bobby Jindal go toe-to-toe on Muslim immigration to the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 20, 2015

There is no doubt that the subject of Muslim immigration is now coming front and center in the debate on how much immigration is too much as was demonstrated by the fact that Fox’s star host, Megyn Kelly invited Gov. Bobby Jindal to explain himself on the subject.

No fear! In 2013, radio host Laura Ingraham called for a halt to ALL MUSLIM IMMIGRATION to America!

Before getting to the exchange, I want to be clear that refugee resettlement is only a portion of US LEGAL immigration that is bringing thousands of Muslims to the US every month, but it has perhaps a disproportionate impact because the refugees’ hands are being held by the resettlement contractors which are guiding them to small cities and towns throughout the country.  Also, the refugees’ start in America is fueled by the federal government (and state governments!) through welfare payments, healthcare, low-income housing and job counseling and training.

In addition to refugee resettlement….

We need to learn more about the ‘Diversity Visa Lottery’s contribution, as well as ‘Temporary Protected Status.’   Also, not to be overlooked are the Investor Visa programs which allow Muslims to enter the country as permanent residents where (as one example) they purchase ‘convenience stores’ (then they set up shop committing food stamp trafficking fraud).

Also, as I said at a meeting last evening, we need a qualified demographer to really nail down the numbers on how many are coming in to the US because, although a country, like Iran, is mostly a Muslim country, our refugees from Iran are mostly NOT Muslims.

And, frankly, there is no way to separate out the so-called ‘moderate’ Muslims and the Sharia-loving ones, so there is only one real solution and that is a MORATORIUM on Muslim migration (the Hijra) to America. 

 

In April of 2013, Laura Ingraham called for a moratorium here, so the words have actually been uttered in public!   Wouldn’t you love to see Laura go toe-to-toe with Megyn!

From George Rasley writing at Conservative HQ:

Louisiana’s principled limited government constitutional conservative Governor Bobby Jindal’s presidential aspirations got a major boost from an appearance on Fox News that many in the establishment panned, but that conservatives took as more evidence that Jindal is the only presidential candidate who understands the war that Islamists have declared on America and the West.

Governor Bobby Jindal, the only leading political figure in America speaking up on Muslim immigration.

Jindal began his exchange with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly defending his remarks that U.S. citizenship rules should be updated to exclude Islamic radicals, such as the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood movement. “It is common sense to say we’re going to prioritize [among immigrants], and if you say you want to be American… we’re going to prioritize you over someone who doesn’t want to be American,” he said at a March 16 event hosted by the American Action Forum.

Under questioning from Kelly Jindal clarified that his comments only referred to “radical Muslims,” like those who “treat women as second-class citizens.”

“Why would I want to allow people who want to kill Americans to come to America?” he said.

Kelly responded that she thought it was “controversial” for the Governor to discriminate against anyone who believes in Islamic Sharia law.

“Who decides how far into Sharia law you have to be?” she asked. “Who decides who’s a radical Islamist and who’s just an Islamist?”

Jindal responded that as long as a person is not causing harm to another person, then they have a right to be in the U.S. They do not have the right, however, to come to the U.S. and impose certain strict beliefs like those regarding women and children, he said.

Jindal was immediately attacked the Council on Islamic Relations (CAIR) various other Muslim organizations dedicated to “understanding and acceptance” that have well documented* ties to the Muslim Brotherhood – a terrorist organization outlawed in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and dedicated to Islamic supremacism, terrorism as a means of achieving political objectives and spreading the misogynistic totalitarian ideology of Sharia.

According to documents seized by law enforcement and submitted as evidence in the largest terrorism finance trial in American history, the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood is to wage a “grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house…”

[….]

First, let’s dispense with the notion that there’s a difference between “radical” Islamists and “just an Islamist.” There is no difference, or if there is a difference it is merely one of timing, not objective.

[….]

And as long as mass legal (and illegal) immigration from Muslim countries continues unabated we are losing that war.

Yup!

Read it all.

Endnote:  Short of a moratorium if we could get the Somali, Iraqi and the soon-to-be-opened Syrian pipelines stopped we would be going a long way to staving off the colonization of American towns.

Refugee resettlement contractor wants Obama to raise the FY2015 ceiling on admission of refugees to bring in large number of Syrians

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 20, 2015

Update March 22nd:  This same Op-Ed is published at the Gulf Times and they have a poll, go there and answer the poll question—should we bring Syrians into the US or not?

This is no surprise to us, the rumblings have been underway for months by others of the nine major US State Department resettlement contractors.  Now comes a Washington Post opinion piece by David Miliband of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to go above the 70,000 refugees we are in the process of admitting from all over the world. (See Hebrew Immigrant Immigrant Aid Society with the same plea for Obama to open the gates to Syrians.)

Hillary yuks it up with David Miliband in 2009. Hillary: “Well, if you saw him it would be a big crush.” http://www.theguardian.com/world/2009/nov/17/hillary-clinton-david-miliband-interview

For new readers, David Miliband is the former British Foreign Secretary who has moved across the Atlantic to serve as the CEO of the IRC.***  His predecessor pulled down a salary and benefits package of nearly $500,000 to “rescue” poor souls and we expect he didn’t pull up stakes in the UK for less than that.

As we were reminded by the Massachusetts contractor, here just a few days ago, this is a business!   Contractors are paid by the head to resettle refugees in your towns and cities.

Security concerns!

A few weeks ago the FBI testified in Congress that they could not adequately screen the Syrians because there are no records on even who they are.  Of course it begs the question, how did we screen over 100,000 Somalis we have admitted to the US over the last few decades?

Miliband first gives us the guilt trip about how countries in the Middle East are suffering with the arrival of hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees and somehow we need to do our share.  Somehow the fact that we send millions of dollars in aid for the refugees isn’t enough.

And, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees is helping pressure Obama by placing over 10,000 Syrians in a queue for America.

Past experience tells us that once the pipeline is open for permanent resettlement to the US, it will be open for potentially decades even if the civil war wrapped up tomorrow!

Notice that Miliband never says a word about Christians and other religious minorities.  We know that the vast majority of those in the pipeline are Syrian Muslims from UN camps.

Here is Miliband at the Washington Post giving us three things we must do:

First, in light of the dire situation in Syria, it can raise the 70,000 cap specifically to accommodate Syrian refugees over the next two years.

Second, it can ensure that DHS issues needed guidance on “material support” waivers created in 2014, thus avoiding delays and denials to Syrians who have committed no wrongs. [These same contractors successfully lobbied the Administration to lift the material support for terrorism ban, and apparently DHS has never published any regulations.  Some inside the Administration are evidently trying to protect us!—ed]

Third…The United States can expand resettlement options by establishing, through the refugee program, a family reunification mechanism enabling Syrian Americans to bring extended family to safety more quickly.

On this last point, we already have mechanisms in place to bring LEGITIMATE family members to the US—we call it chain migration!

*** The IRC has the largest budget of the nine contractors.  Approximately 73% comes from you:

International Rescue Committee (secular)
(From 2012 Form 990)

Total revenue: $456,122,865
Govt. grants and contracts (including travel loan income): $332,271,151
Percent taxpayer funded: 73%
Top salary: $485,321

Detroit: Despite high unemployment, Lutherans and feds still pouring refugees into the area

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 19, 2015

This starts out as the usual feel-good fluffy-puffy story about a happy Iraqi refugee landing in Detroit, Michigan, but there are some very interesting nuggets of information that appear mid-story.

From the National Journal:

Detroit’s suburbs have absorbed tens of thousands of Iraqi refugees in recent years after violence erupted in the wake of the war. The established Arab community in Detroit has made it the top destination for Iraqi refugees—and that, in turn, has made Michigan one of the states receiving the largest influx of refugees.

From 2010 to 2014, Michigan saw a 38 percent increase in the number of refugees moving to the state, according to data from the Health and Human Services Department. The vast majority are fleeing Iraq, where they faced violence and retaliation for working with U.S. troops during the war, like Al Saady, or because they belong to a religious minority. The number of Iraqi refugees arriving in Michigan nearly doubled in the last four years, with 2,751 arriving in 2014.

The growing number of refugees exacerbated the economic strain on Detroit communities as it struggled during the Great Recession. Refugees had trouble finding work, and staff was stretched thin at the social service agencies that help families resettle in the area. In 2008, the State Department started limiting Iraqi resettlement to Detroit to those who had immediate family members there. But many of those Iraqi refugees who have been resettled elsewhere in the years since still end up moving to Detroit anyway, says Mihaela Mitrofan, refugee-resettlement program manager for Lutheran Social Services of Michigan.  [Readers, it is called “secondary migration” in resettlement industry lingo. The Iraqis want to live with their own kind, as do the Somalis that flock to Minnesota, but God forbid you want to live with people you are culturally comfortable with!—ed]

“With everything that’s happening with ISIS, we anticipate another wave of refugees from Iraq and also Syria,” says Mitrofan.

Since the middle of 2007, Lutheran Social Services has resettled more than 8,000 Iraqi refugees in the Detroit area. Christian Iraqis are usually integrated into the large Chaldean community in the northern Detroit suburb of Sterling Heights. Chaldeans are a Catholic minority group in Iraq.  [Christians are only about 22-25% of the Iraqis we resettle.—ed]

Muslim Iraqis, like Al Saady, are usually sent to Dearborn, a suburb just southwest of Detroit that has provided a home for Arab-Americans of Lebanese, Palestinian, Yemeni, and other backgrounds for nearly 100 years. Lutheran Social Services runs a small office on the city’s main drag, above a hookah bar and across the street from a halal grocery store.

Getting them their welfare goodies as per the Obama colonizing plan!

One LSS staff member, Arjwan Khadoori, helped 13 Iraqis resettle in Dearborn this past January. Khadoori tracked down housing, took them to buy groceries, and guided them through the process of registering for Social Security cards, Medicaid, driver’s licenses, and food stamps. Each person also receives $925 in federal cash assistance to help tide them over until they find work.

Another staff member, Jawhar Altahesh, persuades employers to hire the refugees. This can be tough, he says, especially in an area with such high unemployment. Sometimes employers will accuse him of taking away jobs from Americans. Even Arab-American Muslims might not want to hire women or Shiite Muslims.  [By the way, we are bringing an almost equal number of Sunnis and Shiites out of Iraq.—ed]

“I tell them that’s against the law,” says Altahesh, “but it doesn’t matter.”

From November through January, the Dearborn office helped find full-time jobs for 30 of 50 refugees seeking employment in Wayne County.

Michigan received the 4th highest number of refugees in FY2014, here.
