President to decide on refugee quota for FY2016 NOW! Will Congress lift a finger to protect America?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 1, 2015

It is September and as we speak, the Obama Administration (US State Department) is putting its final touches on their annual Determination Letter and accompanying report to Congress.

Obama shushing

Don’t tell Congress and let’s slip this by them again—maybe this time with 65,000 Syrians!

The new fiscal year begins on October 1 and by the 30th of this month Obama will send to Congress for “consultation” a document which states how many refugees and from what regions of the world we will be “welcoming” refugees to America.

This so-called “consultation” with Congress is a legal requirement. However, it is common knowledge that the House and Senate Committees responsible for analyzing this information have in the past been silent.

In fact, Ken Tota (who recently served as the interim director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement) was overheard saying that “in his entire almost 30-year career, Congress has never questioned the numbers.”

State Department scoping meetings

For our many new readers, this year there was no US State Department hearing on the “size and scope” of the refugee program (or, LOL! they kept it very secret!).  We can only assume that was because in the three previous years they heard testimony that they didn’t like from citizens that were concerned about the program.  Here is one post of dozens on the topic.  Readers of RRW had flooded the State Department with negative testimony about the program.  In fact, we testified that there should be a moratorium on the program.  See my 2014 testimony here.

I mention this because the Presidential Determination being prepared now is the culmination of the annual process that began with those late spring ‘hearings’ (and again there was no public opportunity to comment this year that we were aware of).

Also, regular readers know that we have been discussing, and attempting to obtain, R & P abstracts the subcontractors located around the country prepare for Washington—those are part of the process as well. Just as taxpaying citizens had no opportunity to testify to the State Department this year, taxpaying citizens have no input in the abstract preparation process either.

Presumably one final check in the system to protect America is the “consultation” with Congress in September of each year.

However, if this year is like all others, our elected representatives in Washington will not lift a finger to question the size and scope of this year’s proposed refugee quota!

And, this could be the year that plans to resettle tens of thousands of Syrians will be announced!

Click here for last year’s Presidential Determination, and here for the lengthy report which was sent to Congress on September 18th last year.  The report begins:

This Proposed Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year 2015: Report to the Congress is submitted in compliance with Sections 207(d)(1) and (e) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The Act requires that before the start of the fiscal year and, to the extent possible, at least two weeks prior to consultations on refugee admissions, members of the Committees on the Judiciary of the Senate and the House of Representatives be provided with the following information….

Note that the report goes to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees.  Chairmen of the full committees are Bob Goodlatte and Chuck Grassley respectively.  Subcommittee Chairmen responsible for Refugee Resettlement are Trey Gowdy and Jeff Sessions.

Will those chairmen help protect America this year by holding hearings when the Presidential Determination for FY2016 arrives on the Hill which by law should be in about two weeks!  Or, will they (yet again!) simply rubber stamp what Obama wants?

Learn more about refugee resettlement in your state

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 31, 2015

For new readers……

 

bob_carey_large_photo_1

Revolving door and one big happy family! This is Bob Carey, the new director of the ORR. He was previously a VP at the International Rescue Committee. And, what a coincidence, over at the State Department, the Asst. Secretary of State for PRM, Anne Richard, was also a VP at the International Rescue Committee. Gee! Do you think federal contractor, the IRC headed by Brit David Miliband, might have a bit of an inside track to the federal agencies that feed them?

The US Refugee Resettlement Program is administered by two different agencies of the federal government.  The US State Department admits refugees and contracts with the nine major federal resettlement contractors (they call them VOLAGS short for Voluntary Agencies which they definitely are not!) to distribute them.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) in the Dept. of Health and Human  Services is responsible for making sure that myriad grants get out to the contractors and their subcontractors and to manage much of the other day-to-day operation being dictated from Washington.

The ORR has produced a handy map.  When you click on your state, contact information pops up for the bureaucrats who are responsible in your state.

You will see some states are Wilson-Fish states which means they are run pretty much with no state government involvement.  Go here to learn more about Wilson-Fish.

To find which federal resettlement subcontractors have offices near you, go here.

Regarding my reference to David Miliband in the photo caption—Miliband is the first resettlement contractor head honcho to push for Obama to admit 65,000 Syrians before his term ends.

September is an important month in the resettlement process, first because the feds and their contractors are scrambling to bring in as many refugees as possible in hopes of meeting the 70,000 refugee target that Obama set last year.

And, because Obama, by the end of September, will submit his Annual Determination Letter (this one for 2015) to Congress (where it has been rubber-stamped each year) in which he will lay out the goal for FY2016 which begins on October 1.  Watch for a huge jump in the number of Syrians to be admitted and distributed to your towns in the coming fiscal year.

We will be watching to see if any Member of Congress or US Senator says anything about Obama’s picks for 2016.

Twin Falls, ID: Article tells us why you must demand answers BEFORE refugees begin arriving

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 30, 2015

….of course the trick will be trying to figure that out!

Twin Falls, Idaho has developed a very active and competent ‘Pocket of Resistance’ in spite of the local media’s effort to denigrate opponents of the UN/US State Department plan to further seed the community with third world refugees.  This round of controversy began in earnest back in April when the local resettlement contractor bragged to the media that Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees were coming to Idaho.

Jessica Lilley

Jessica Lilley, USCRI field representative, obviously traveled to Twin Falls from USCRI’s Arlington, Virginia headquarters to help organize against the growing ‘pocket of resistance’ that has developed in Twin Falls. Photo: https://www.linkedin.com/pub/jessica-lilley/15/308/3b0

You will have to read the whole article from Friday, here at MagicValley.com for details on the latest news.  I can’t post much of it or the editor will have his lawyers send me another letter, but there is one important thing I want you to see.

First, here are the opening paragraphs:

TWIN FALLS • A refugee center in Twin Falls isn’t likely to go away even if the College of Southern Idaho stops sponsoring its program, officials say.

A local group — the Committee to End the CSI Refugee Center — wants a measure to shutter the center on ballots by May, says the group’s leader, Rick Martin, a widely known right-wing activist [LOL! bias alert!—ed]. They also want to recruit candidates to run for the college’s board of trustees in November 2016 with the goal of phasing out the center.

The group submitted its measure this week to the Twin Falls County Attorney, a preliminary step before the group can begin gathering signatures to get it on the ballot.

Then this!  Once they get a program up and running in your town, it becomes almost impossible to shutter it later because they are in the process of admitting family members of the first group they brought in.  The contractors are usually gleeful to shove that bit of news into critics faces.

Jessica Lilley, a program officer with the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants [USCRI—ed], addressed the topic Tuesday during a meeting with the Magic Valley Refugee Advocates, a group formed this summer to support the local program.

“You already have a community of refugees here” with family members still oversees, she said, and the U.S. Department of State will want an agency in Twin Falls to fill the gap as the relatives of refugees resettle in the United States.

She goes on to threaten that they will just drop them off in neighboring towns, but they will end up in Twin Falls anyway.

Continue reading here.

This is why any of you wondering if you might be a target for refugee resettlement need to do your sleuthing and demand a public discussion of the plan coming from Washington BEFORE refugees arrive.

Remember you have a right to know what the UN/US State Department has in the works for your community and they will not be giving your town any advance warning!  It will be up to you to expose the plan.

How might you learn that refugees are (secretly!) destined for your town or city?

First, go here and see if you are located anywhere near the 190 resettlement offices.  If you are anywhere within a hundred miles of one of the government contractor offices, your town is fair game.

If you know anyone in local elected government, call them now and ask if they have heard any news about refugees coming (the feds are getting desperate for fresh territory!).  By law, the resettlement contractor is supposed to “consult” local elected officials, but it might be the most cursory of contacts.

Then you need to check with two local agencies—the health department and the school system—the first two places, especially right now as schools open, where some local official might have the inside scoop.

Another tip-off might be the soon-to-be open new industry, such as a meat packing plant, which wants to employ cheap immigrant laborers.  Federal contractors like USCRI work closely with not just manufacturing type industries or the food industry, but with the hotel industry as well.  They like to give the impression that this is all about ‘humanitarianism,’ but it isn’t.  That is just the cover! Frankly it is ALL ABOUT THE MONEY and about changing America demographically.

For background on Twin Falls, go here.  And, to contact Mr. Martin, see the website, Magic Valley Refugee Watch, here.

For more on USCRI….

See USCRI’s website here.  The organization is headed by Lavinia Limon who was Bill Clinton’s Director of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement.  Limon is one of several contractors who have moved in and out of government over their careers resettling refugees.  If you want to know more about her, click here, for our Limon archive.  One of my favorite Limon posts is this one from 2008 when the US State Department did shutter the USCRI subcontractor office in Waterbury, CT for not taking good care of the refugees they had been paid to take care of!

SC Governor Nikki Haley ‘welcomes’ refugees to South Carolina (Part I)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 29, 2015

Angering her, Obama wants to send South Carolina some Gitmo prisoners, but in the meantime she has signaled her ‘welcome’ to third world refugees.

This is another informative article from World Net Daily investigative reporter Leo Hohmann which includes an update about the visit this past week of Anne Richard, Asst. Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration, who traveled to Spartanburg, SC to try to quell the resistance there to a new plan to seed Spartanburg with refugees.

From WND:

Some are calling it the “height of hypocrisy,” bordering on demagoguery.

Haley and Jindal

If Haley has any plans to run for higher office, she should have a chat with fellow governor Bobby Jindal who has been very tough on the subject of Muslim immigration to America. Maybe he can help set her straight? Jindal wants to restrict Muslim immigration to the US: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/megyn-kelly-grills-jindal-on-his-proposal-to-restrict-muslim-immigration-to-u-s/

Nikki Haley, South Carolina’s Republican governor, came out last Thursday and blasted possible White House plans to bring Guantanamo Bay prisoners to her state.

The governor called a news conference and didn’t mince words.

“We are absolutely drawing a line that we are not going to allow any terrorist to come into South Carolina,” Haley said. “We are not going to allow that kind of threat, we are not going to allow that kind of character to come in.

“My job is to protect the people of this state, and I take that very personally,” she continued. “I will take that personally the entire way through, so that the president, the Congress and anyone involved in this decision understands they are not wanted, they are not needed, and we will not accept them in South Carolina.”

Yet, at the same time she was drawing a red line against Gitmo terrorists who would stay locked in a brig off the coast of Charleston, Haley was opening her arms wide to welcome “refugees” from jihadist strongholds in the Middle East and Africa.

[….]

Haley has come down on the side of the State Department and the refugees, saying she trusts the vetting process, despite hundreds of arrests and active investigations involving refugees or children of refugees across the U.S. She has chosen to believe the State Department over the FBI, which is responsible for screening the refugees and warned that in some cases it’s an impossible task.

Please continue reading here, there is much more!  And, don’t miss the hundreds of comments!

SC writer: Refugee program is fake Christian compassion

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 26, 2015

Editor:  This is a letter written by a concerned citizen of South Carolina.  It is an open letter to the Spartanburg County Council. The council may have no legal way to stop the US State Department (or so we are told), but if the Council voted to say they were not supportive of the effort to bring in impoverished people from the third world (because Spartanburg has its own poor minority) it would go a long way to persuade the US State Department to go elsewhere.

As of this writing I haven’t seen an update of what happened with meetings in  Spartanburg when the US State Department sent its top dog to a town that has developed a ‘Pocket of Resistance’ to World Relief/UN/US State Department plans to establish an immigrant seed community there.

I did see an excellent commentary at Fits News. Go here for an opinion in advance of the meetings yesterday and Monday.

richard-and-guterres

By remaining silent the Spartanburg County Council will allow these two to determine the future of Spartanburg: Asst. Sec. of State Anne Richard and UNHCR Antonio Guterres, former head of Socialists International.

Below is the letter from Beverly Owensby.  The sentiment she expresses here is one all of you concerned about being labeled “unwelcoming” or unchristian should pay attention to.  It is a view we have expressed here many times over the years—true Christian charity is using one’s own time and money  to help the poor preferably where they live.  Or, if one adopts, or supports an immigrant child or family, one uses one’s own resources and doesn’t dump the responsibility on the taxpayer.

An open letter:

After spending hundreds of hours on fact based research, the current REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT program is nothing more than an AMERICAN INVASION. Many are exploiting the compassion of Christians to trick them into accepting the REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM as the right thing to do to protect Christians from being persecuted. This is so far from the truth. Based on the U.S. State Department website, the majority of REFUGEES are Muslims. Why? The UNITED NATIONS is responsible for selecting who comes to America. GEORGE SOROS is spending billions of dollars to ensure the success of this program. If the United Nations and George Soros cared about Christians, they would have done something to prevent ISIS from killing so many Christians in the Middle East and other parts of the world.

CHRISTIAN COMPASSION DOES NOT TAX OTHERS!

CHRISTIAN COMPASSION IS A PERSONAL COMMITMENT TO A CAUSE! THIS IS NOT THE SAME THING AS THE GOVERNMENT FORCING INDIVIDUALS TO PAY FOR SOMETHING THEY BELIEVE IS WRONG!

The United States is $18 Trillion Dollars in Debt and cannot afford to pay for REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT! The United States is on the verge of an economic collapse that will destroy America. The REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT program is designed to push America over the edge. The influx of ILLEGALS coming across our Southern Border and entering the U.S. along with the REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT program are by design to overload the system.

Christians who want to help the REAL PERSECUTED CHRISTIAN can contact a Mission Board and let them know they are willing to house and provide total financial support for an individual or family. THIS IS TRUE CHRISTIAN COMPASSION…. NOT FAKE CHRISTIAN COMPASSION! ….

IF YOU TRULY CARE ABOUT SPARTANBURG COUNTY, YOU WILL VOTE NO TO THE REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM!

THANKS SO MUCH FOR ALL YOU DO FOR SPARTANBURG COUNTY!

LET FREEDOM RING,

Beverly Owensby

What would Jesus do?  I suspect he would throw the money changers (federal contractors, including the US Catholic Bishops!) out of the temple.

For new readers, go here for a background (with some updates) on what happened in Spartanburg beginning last spring when it was learned it would be targeted for colonization.  For a complete archive on Spartanburg posts, go here.

Feds won’t say exactly what the invasion by Unaccompanied Alien Children cost US last year

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 22, 2015

Julia Hahn at Breitbart has another excellent story with details about the impact on America of refugees, asylees, and this time those Unaccompanied Alien Children who are given over to the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

border boys

The majority of the ‘children’ spread throughout the US were teenage boys.

Here is her story from this week (trying to post a few things from afar when I catch a few free minutes):

Illegal aliens who show up at the border have been resettled all across United States of America instead of being detained and deported, as Donald Trump recently called for in his new immigration plan.

According to data from the Justice Department obtained by Breitbart News, 96 percent of Central Americans caught illegally crossing into the country last summer are still in the United States. Now Breitbart News has learned exclusively that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from a pro-security group about the cost of this operation is being stonewalled.

In January of 2015, the Immigration Reform Law Institute, on behalf of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), filed a FOIA request to discover the cost of accommodating the tens of thousands of illegal unaccompanied minors who came across the border encouraged by President Obama’s 2012 executive amnesty for illegal youths.

The FOIA letter made five requests of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency: that the federal agency detail (1) the costs of building of family detention centers; (2) the costs of apprehending, processing and detaining unaccompanied minors; (3) the costs transporting, transferring, removing and repatriating unaccompanied minors; (4) the costs related to ICE’s representation of government in removal procedures involving unaccompanied minors; and (5) the number of instances where objections to the return of unaccompanied minors were raised by the governments of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

The federal agency, however, refused to answer many of these questions– instead only partially answering two of the five requests.

There is more, continue reading here.

All of our coverage of the ‘unaccompanied minors’ catastrophe is here.   ‘Unaccompanied minor’ was the earlier terminology used for the ‘children’ and we have followed the issue for years so everything we’ve written is archived using that term.  The US Conference of Catholic Bishops and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service are two of the nine major refugee resettlement contractors who are paid to help care for the ‘children.’

Wichita KS: Schools desperate for more funding to cope with refugee overload

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2015

We told you about Wichita public school problems here back in the spring, now comes news that, as the school year is about to begin, the school system there is in desperate need of more funding due to the refugee overloadbrought there by the International Rescue Committee and and Episcopal resettlement contractor.  See IRC in Kansas here.

Hillary and David Miliband

So what might this photo have to do with Wichita? That man on the left (Hillary says if you met him you would have a “crush”) is the CEO of the International Rescue Committee based in NYC. He is the former British foreign secretary who has come to the US to head up the IRC. He makes a salary of nearly $500,000 to resettle third world refugees to places like Wichita, Kansas. He was feted in NY by a list of Leftwing luminaries here in 2013. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2013/12/09/new-york-times-slobbers-over-david-milibands-arrival-in-nyc-to-lead-refugee-contractor/

Note to ‘welcoming’ communities—the federal government will not be helping you out with funding!  This extra funding will be provided by the taxpayers of Kansas!

Calling all potential ‘Pockets of Resistance’ in Kansas!  (See yesterday’s blockbuster WND story about POR in North Dakota, Idaho and South Carolina).  Where are you?

For POR everywhere, be sure to examine your local school system budget!

From The Wichita Eagle (hat tip: Joanne). Emphasis is mine:

The Wichita school district is seeking nearly $1 million from the state’s extraordinary need fund for schools, citing a large number of students who are refugees.

It is among 38 school districts that have applied to the Kansas Department of Education for additional dollars to deal with a variety of needs, including enrollment increases.

The districts are seeking slightly more than $15 million. The extraordinary need fund has $12.3 million in it. The State Finance Council will weigh districts’ requests at its Aug. 24 meeting.

Wichita, the state’s largest district, pointed to a growing number of refugee students as the reason it needs the additional resources.

“Episcopal Wichita Area Refugee Ministries and the International Rescue Committee in Wichita have each received allocations and are actively relocating refugees to Wichita,” wrote Jim Freeman, the district’s chief financial officer, in the application the district submitted Monday.

“As a result the district is seeing a dramatic increase in the number of school-aged students who are refugees from Burma, Somalia and the Congo region of Africa. Some have lived in refugee camps for decades; all are fleeing persecution, oppression and war.”

The district had 132 refugees enrolled during last school year, and 95 percent did not speak English when they arrived. The district expects an additional 145 to 150 refugee students to enroll this year; it expects the total number of refugees to be about 220.

Freeman wrote that these students come with a host of unusual needs.

Continue reading to learn what those “unusual needs” are!  Then this:

Freeman noted that the district did not receive any federal immigration funds for this fiscal year despite its growing number of refugee and immigrant students.

Please read the whole article, here.

About the photo:  I would like readers to know that this issue isn’t just a local problem, but is part of a massive plan coming down from the very top. Think about it, David Miliband, a Brit, is helping to shape the future of Wichita!  For more on David Miliband, see our many posts by clicking here.   The International Rescue Committee (Miliband!) was the first contractor to call for 65,000 (mostly Muslim) Syrians to be admitted to the US by the end of 2016!   See alsoMiliband: we must embrace political Islamism.’

You can bet the colonizing will be stepped-up if Hillary makes it to the Oval Office.

For anyone in the larger alternative media reading this, it would be very useful for someone to profile some of the biggest players involved in the refugee racket.

Cuban “refugee” numbers ticked up dramatically when Obama announced normalization of relations with Cuba

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 17, 2015

Once Obama announced that we were going to be on good terms with Communist Cuba, I wondered what it would mean for the tens of thousands of so-called Cuban refugees we have been taking in over recent years.

I would think the whole Cuban resettlement would come to a grinding halt since love was in the air between our country and theirs.

Generated by IJG JPEG Library

Sec. of State John Kerry in Cuba last week. We are now pals with the Cuban government. So this should mean that no more ‘refugees’ need to come to the US from Cuba! Right!

Apparently Cubans wanting out saw the writing-on-the-wall and expedited their travel to America.

Here, according to Breitbart (hat tip: Joanne):

The United States is experiencing a massive surge in the number of Cuban refugees risking their lives to reach American shores, following President Obama’s announcement that the White House would legitimize the communist Castro regime by reestablishing diplomatic relations.

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol is reporting that 23,978 Cuban refugees arrived in the United States between October 2014 and May 2015, with another 3,564 Cubans attempting and failing to reach U.S. shores. Most of those arriving successfully crossed the southern border with Mexico or crossed the straits of the Caribbean separating Florida from Cuba. The number of Cubans arriving in the past eight months is significantly larger than the number that reached the United States throughout all of the 2014 fiscal year: 22,162.

In January, officials reported experiencing a major spike in Cuban refugee migration between December 2014 and January 2015, in the immediate aftermath of President Obama’s announcement of normalization of relations with the Cuban regime. Coastal officials recorded a 60% increase in the number of Cubans traveling to the United States in the last trimester of 2014, but a 117% increase in migration when comparing December 2013 and December 2014.

Read it all.

I know from past research that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is paid (by you) to help the Cubans resettle, but I think others of the nine contractors get a cut of the federal dole to help bring Cubans to your towns.

Pockets of Resistance growing and spreading, WND tells us where (so far)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 17, 2015

Update:  This WND story made it to Drudge today and it went through the roof!

Leo Hohmann, writing at World Net Daily last evening has another detailed article on the Refugee Admissions Program of the UN/US State Department and a report from at least three important ‘Pockets of Resistance.

AnneRichard and UNHCR

That is Anne Richard, Asst. Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration on the right. She does the bidding of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres, the former Socialist President of Portugal (on the left). Together these two are changing (colonizing!) American towns one by one. Richard was formerly a Vice President at the International Rescue Committee, one of nine federal resettlement contractors. Bio: http://www.state.gov/r/pa/ei/biog/188212.htm

The WND article begins:

The pushback started earlier this year in South Carolina, then spread to Minnesota, Idaho, and now North Dakota.

Michigan and Ohio are also organizing against what local residents say is a sinister and sneaky federal program that almost never gets serious coverage from local media. It’s the U.S. State Department’s refugee resettlement program, which has been humming along on autopilot since Congress passed the Refugee Act of 1980, signed by President Jimmy Carter.

No longer satisfied with pat answers, residents in several states are starting to ask the hard questions. They are showing up at meetings, starting blogs and email lists, digging up information and bypassing local media to inform their friends and neighbors of what’s really going on with the refugee movement.

[….]

In conservative Twin Falls, Idaho, for instance, a group of 100 activists are going door to door informing their neighbors about how the refugee program works. Organizer Rick Martin says most people are surprised to find out that the United Nations picks most of the refugees destined for America, and that the Catholic Church, the Lutheran and Episcopal churches, along with evangelical and Jewish groups get paid by the federal government to resettle refugees in the U.S.

“When we mention that the U.N. is involved most of the time they won’t believe it, so we have to show them the articles,” Martin said.

Since, I have BIG MEAT on my mind these days and the role it plays in lobbying for cheap, legal, immigrant labor, comments by Minnesota’s Bob Enos jumped out at me:

The nine private resettlement agencies, including “charities” within the Lutheran, Catholic, Episcopalian, and evangelical churches, get federal grants to resettle the refugees, essentially acting as front groups for the government, but without the transparency and accountability that would be expected if the government did the work itself, said Bob Enos, spokesman for T-3 (Truth and Transparency in Taxation) in St. Cloud. His group is pushing for more openness in the way refugees are resettled in Minnesota.

“I think the meat packers had a lot to do with this,” Enos, a former businessman, told WND. “These are people in business whose raw materials won’t allow them to outsource overseas, so if you can’t bring the factory overseas you bring overseas to the factory.

Read it all!  It is, as usual, very thorough, and it might give you some ideas on what you can do in your ‘Pocket of Resistance (POR)’.

Dick Morris: US drowning in refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 16, 2015

Dick Morris is on the case:   Soon all the immigrants coming to America will be called refugees!

A couple of thoughts on political commentator Dick Morris (well known for his earlier friendship with the Clintons) who has a presentation on the Refugee Admissions Program of the UN/US State Department.  (hat tip: Peter)  It is pretty good.  I think he is on target when he says the Obama Administration (and its No Borders cabal) is purposefully calling anyone who gets here for any economic reason (the Unaccompanied alien children for instance) “refugees” because the word triggers an emotional response from those who know nothing.

I was going to point out that Morris’ numbers are bit high, but then if you do include (in addition to the annual 70,000 refugees themselves), the UACs, the asylum seekers, the Special Immigrant Visa holders, the Cuban/Haitian parolees and so forth, the half a million for Obama’s term in office is actually low.  But, don’t ever forget that George W. Bush brought in nearly the same number!  This program is 35 years old this year!

Morris says that Congress has no role, but they do!  They just don’t exercise it.  

When the President sends up his annual “determination” in late September*** for consultation, Senators and Members of Congress could say “NO” to what the President is proposing.  We don’t know what would happen then because saying NO, as far as we know, has never been tested.  I doubt anyone, but some lowly staff person, ever looks at the presentation from the White House/US State Dept. 

Indeed, it is now shameful that with all the concern about the program around the country, that Rep. Trey Gowdy, who is responsible as chairman of the immigration subcommittee in the House for the refugee program, has apparently not made one move to hold oversight hearings of any sort!

The Babin bill, which Morris mentions, would be a good reason to hold a hearing!

 

Watch here:

 

 

Go here for more on the video and on how to contact Morris.

*** Here is the FY2015 Determination letter.   It is accompanied by a very large, very useful, report to Congress.  Although the new fiscal year (2016) begins on October 1, 2015, don’t expect the determination to be sent much before Sept. 30th, so there is virtually no time for Congress to seriously look at it before the State Department is sending thousands out to colonize your towns.

This is a warning I posted recently.  I have no inside information.  I could be wrong, but, just in case, better to be ready and start talking about it now!

Warning!

By the way, on this Presidential determination letter, the Obama Administration is working on that right now for FY2016. They will send it to Congress around Sept. 30th since FY2016 begins on October 1.   I am very concerned that instead of the usual 70,000 refugees the Obama Administration has been bringing in each year, that they will dramatically increase the number for 2016 to accommodate the 65,000 (mostly Muslim) Syrians that the United Nations wants us to take. The reason I suspect a rat is that it has been very very quiet ever since the Jihad Caucus wrote to Obama.   I’m guessing Obama/Kerry told them to hush-up for now because something is in the works!  

Watch for it!
