Refugee Council USA: lobbying arm for refugee contractors on the move

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 22, 2015

In our previous post we reported that the Refugee Council USA (RCUSA) apparently played a role in getting those 14 Senators signed on to a letter urging Obama to open the flood gates to 65,000 Syrian refugees before his term in office expires!

I’ve mentioned RCUSA over the years, but honestly may have underestimated the role this consortium of non-profits play in advancing an open borders agenda by lobbying Congress and promoting secrecy about refugee resettlement in towns and cities across America (indeed they apparently are informing the 350 plus resettlement contractors to give no information to any of you calling your local resettlement offices looking for information on what is planned for your towns.)

Here are the members which pay “dues” to belong to this lobbying arm for the resettlement industry.

I sure hope they aren’t using our tax dollars for their dues!  (Those in red are the nine major resettlement contractors):

Here is what they do (important to understand that ‘advocacy’=lobbying):

RCUSA is a member-driven coalition and its funding comes solely from member dues. There are a number of standing committees that serve to structure the on-going work of the coalition. In addition to these committees, members are informed daily through RCUSA communications about meetings, events, and other relevant information pertaining to refugee and displacement issues.

General Council: The executives and/or officers from each member agency meet regularly to discuss the council’s work and reach consensus on key advocacy positions and other relevant issues.

Advocacy Committee: Individuals from each member agency meet bi-weekly in Washington, D.C. to coordinate legislative and administrative advocacy efforts at the national and local level.

The committee works together to advance refugee protection, strengthen the United States Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP), educate policymakers about the value of refugee protection and a strong resettlement program, and promote adequate funding for refugees. Katie Conway, Immigration and Refugee Policy Analyst, Episcopal Migration Ministries, currently chairs this Committee.

Go here for more!

Leadership of RCUSA

Chairmanship rotates and the present chair is Anastasia Brown of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, here.  Brown is the contractor/lobbyist I observed who asked that we resettle more Rohingya Muslims here in 2013.

Refugee Council USA is chaired by the executives of member agencies on a rotating basis and has two full time staff.

RCUSA Chair: Anastasia Brown, Director of Resettlement Services of Migration and Refugee Services, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops

Anastasia Brown is the Director of Resettlement Services, Migration and Refugee
Services, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (MRS/USCCB). She has over 18
years of experience with refugee resettlement and is familiar with both overseas and
domestic resettlement issues. USCCB resettles approximately 28% of all refugees that
enter the United States. Ms. Brown served as the Chair of the Resettlement Committee
of the Refugee Council USA from 2008-2010. Ms. Brown served as the NGO co-chair
for the joint US Government/Refugee Council USA working group for the East Asia
Pacific Region from 2004-2007 and the Misrepresentation/Fraud Workgroup from 2004-
2006.

Prior to joining MRS/USCCB, Ms. Brown worked for the International Catholic
Migration Commission processing refugees from Vietnam under the Orderly Departure
Program.

To concerned citizens!  Do not get discouraged when you see the lobbying power and the money behind the refugee resettlement industry and know that you are having an impact!  You have every right to know every detail about who is coming to your towns and what these non-elected advocacy groups are planning!

14 US Senators tell Obama: Bring MORE Syrians to America (65,000 is a good number!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 22, 2015

Urgent update!  If your Senator is listed here, you really need to get the word out so that they get an earful from constituents!

Breaking News:  According to Durban’s press release, all nine federal resettlement contractors are urging Obama to bring in 65,000 Syrians before his term ends!

Led by Senators Dick Durban (D-IL) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) (we don’t have enough Muslims in Minnesota yet!), fourteen US Senators are urging Obama to open the flood gates to the Syrian (mostly Muslim refugees) the UN has picked for us and that the refugee contractors are now lobbying for us to take.

[See yesterday, Syrian resettlement as jihadi pipeline!]

Here is Senator Durban’s press release and a portion of the letter:

NH Senator Jeanne Shaheen: Let’s bring in 65,000 Syrian refugees! It is our moral duty! Shaheen is one of 14 Senators who have asked Obama to open the flood gates!

 WASHINGTON—U.S. Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) today led a group of fourteen senators in calling on President Barack Obama to significantly increase the number of Syrian refugees allowed to resettle in the United States. The Syrian conflict has led to the world’s worst ongoing humanitarian crisis and the worst refugee crisis since World War II.

“Our nation’s founders came to our shores to escape religious persecution and the United States has a long tradition of providing safe haven to refugees,” the senators wrote. “The United States traditionally accepts at least 50 percent of resettlement cases from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). However, we have accepted only approximately 700 refugees since the beginning of the Syrian conflict, an unacceptably low number. While the United States is the largest donor of humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees, we must also dramatically increase the number of Syrian refugees that we accept for resettlement.” [The number is actually 843/92% Muslim.—ed]

Not a single word about the fact that these members of the Refugee Council USA have a financial interest in bringing in this huge number of Syrians that the FBI has already said cannot be properly screened!   “Nonpartisan” my foot!  These members of the Refugee Council USA are all members in good standing of the hard LEFT.

Indeed, we cannot expect countries hosting Syrian refugees to continue shouldering such a disproportionate burden if the United States and other industrialized countries do not begin resettling many more Syrian refugees. UNHCR is seeking to resettle 130,000 Syrian refugees over the next two years and has thus far submitted more than 12,000 resettlement cases to the United States for consideration. Refugee Council USA, a nonpartisan coalition of the leading U.S. refugee organizations (including Church World Service, HIAS, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, USCCB, National Association of Evangelicals’ World Relief), recently called for the United States to resettle at least 65,000 of these Syrian refugees by the end of 2016[This is news! Initially only the International Rescue Committee called for 65,000, now we see it is all of the so-called ‘religious federal government contractors.—ed]

[….]

In short, it is a moral, legal, and national security imperative for the United States to lead by example in addressing the world’s worst refugee crisis of our time by greatly increasing the number of Syrian refugees who are resettled in our country.

Funny that Durban doesn’t list the other signatures on the letter in his press release.  In order to see them, go here, to the RCUSA website.

Here they are:

Al Franken (D-MN)

Patrick Leahy (D-VT)

Diane Feinstein (D-CA)

Patty Murray (D-WA)

Robert Menendez (D-NJ)

Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)

Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)

Christopher Coons (D-DE)  LOL! Delaware hasn’t taken a refugee in a couple of years!

Tim Kaine (D-VA)

Edward Markey (D-MA)

Sherrod Brown (D-OH)

Mazie Hirono (D-HI)  LOL! Last I looked Hawaii took a whole 7 refugees last year!

One must assume that by mentioning the 65,000 desired by the refugee resettlement contractors (via RCUSA), all 14 are on board with the number!

How about if we divide 65,000 by the 14 above and put 4,642 Syrians in each of their home towns!

Endnote:  I have more to say and may edit this post or add a new one, just wanted to get this news posted before I lose internet connection again today.

Communist icon Angela Davis: “The refugee movement is THE movement of the 21st century”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 19, 2015

That’s what we learn at OccupyMN’s facebook page thanks to reader Joanne.

“Davis was arrested, charged, tried, and acquitted of conspiracy in the 1970 armed take-over of a Marin County courtroom, in which four persons died.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela_Davis

 

Former Communist Party USA President Angela Davis (didn’t you think she might be dead by now) is interviewed in Germany with African asylum seekers demanding their rights.

Trying to stay relevant?

You can watch her here as she gives community organizing tips to the Africans.

For our many new readers we try to write as often as possible about the ‘Invasion of Europe’ because Western Civilization is being undermined there daily with the arrival of the boat migrants from North Africa and the complete lack of will by most European leaders to do what they must do—stop the boats before they launch from Libya and other hell holes in Africa and the Middle East.

The United States won’t be far behind Europe if we don’t get our LEGAL and illegal immigration under control soon!

One commenter to the facebook page says, “Don’t abandon prison reform for the more glamorous refugee situation. Prison reform is vital.”

Our ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive is here.

Idaho newspaper: NO worries about Syrian refugees coming to Twin Falls; just paranoia

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 15, 2015

All that news recently about Idaho being a hot spot for refugee resettlement must have stirred the pot there and thus the Idaho Press-Tribune editorial board apparently decided it was their duty to tamp it down before it got out of control.

We learned recently that resettlement contractors have plans to resettle Syrians in Magic Valley.  And, then World Net Daily posted a lengthy article on how Idaho is welcoming Muslim refugees.

Opinion Editor Phil Bridges: You are all just paranoid, no beheadings happening in Idaho. https://www.linkedin.com/pub/phil-bridges/77/bab/7a4

Interestingly the paper published a poll and asked readers to vote.   Here is the question:

How concerned are you about Syrian refugees being brought to Twin Falls?

Over 53% of respondents so far had voted that they are “very” concerned.

Opinion editor Phil Bridges says this.  Notice that he blames talk radio and conservatives for being paranoid.  He even mentions unreasonable fears about “no go zones” and beheadings.  He obviously has no clue what ‘civilization jihad’ is.

If you listen to much local talk radio, you’ve probably noticed that some vocal people of a decidedly conservative stripe are very concerned that a few hundred refugees, some of them Syrian, are going to be brought to Twin Falls.

[….]

On balance, we believe there are more reasons to support these refugees than there are to oppose. But reasonable minds can disagree. Just make sure that, if you’re in opposition, your arguments are based in logic, not unreasonable paranoia.

— Phil Bridges

Subsequently the paper dismissed a reader who reported that the FBI testified to Congress that it could not screen Syrians for security.

See our complete archive on Idaho.  Be sure to see posts on the Uzbek refugee terrorist arrested there.

Wilson-Fish!

Idaho is one of those states operating as a Wilson-Fish state. Unlike other states where the resettlement contractors and the federal government call all the shots and the state government has no say on how the program is run, Idaho reserved a small role for itself. In Idaho it looks like the state government will be in charge of enrolling refugees into its state Medicaid program or disbursing the limited 8 month subsidy for refugees that don’t qualify.

The refugee contractors like to tell the public and elected officials that the refugee program is 100% funded by the federal government. In reality, and as stated explicitly by ORR and the GAO, the costs of the federal refugee resettlement program have been shifted to state and local governments because the federal government has chosen not to appropriate enough money to pay for its program.

Maybe the Idaho Press-Tribune should look into that rather than castigate its readers (more than half of them) for being paranoid!

Nutty Norwegians: Christian Party wants 10,000 Syrian Muslims admitted to the country

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 12, 2015

Can you say death wish!

From Speisa.com:

The day after the Norwegian Christian Democratic Party (KrF) congress said a resounding yes to accept 10,000 Muslim refugees from Syria, the party discussed how the country should manage to take care of all of these, plus the 5,000 who already are waiting in reception centers.

Welcome to Norway! We want to give you all sorts of taxpayer-funded stuff!

The Party decided that the refugees should get two-year introduction jobs with wages subsidies from the state, parental guidance course, right to daycare for all asylum children and increased government subsidies for resettlement.

The Christian Party is a support party for the Norwegian government, which consist of the Progress Party (FrP) and the Conservative Party (Høyre).

Norwegians should open their homes to them as well!

Earlier this week, the Christian Party also suggested that Norwegians should open their own homes to traumatized Muslim refugees from Syria.

One has to wonder why the Christian Party hasn’t received news of the ongoing Christian genocide by the same Muslims in the Middle East.

To American readers:

Don’t forget, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees has 11,000 picked out for the US right now, and US resettlement contractors want us to take 65,000 Syrians by the end of Obama’s term in office.

Of the just over 800 we have admitted so far, 92% are Muslim Syrians.  There are only 43 Christians in the group of 800 plus resettled in American towns up to May 1.  Slightly over 700 are Sunni Muslims.

All of our previous posts on Norway are here.  Our series on the ‘Invasion of Europe’ is here.

St. Cloud, MN mosque vandalism called hate crime; Muslim arrested this week

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 8, 2015

Back in December the St. Cloud Islamic community was all in a rage over several incidents of vandalism that had occurred at a local mosque.  The local ‘interfaith’ community rallied and the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American Relations (CAIR) arrived on the scene and even called in the feds in hopes of proving that a “hate crime” had occurred.

Here is CAIR’s commentary—making sure that everyone is notified that Muslims are victims of hate crimes in America!

Lori Saroya

‘Our biggest concern is that it will escalate.’

Lori Saroya, [former] executive director of CAIR-MN, said the biggest concern is that the situation will escalate. There have been situations where vandalism has risen to arson in other cases, she said.  [Where, Ms. Saroya, has a mosque been burned by Islamophobes?—ed]

Saroya urged community leaders to use safety measures outlined in a CAIR booklet “Best Practices for Mosque and Community Safety,” which was published in response to previous attacks on American mosques.

[….]

Since 2010, every new mosque project in Minnesota has faced community opposition, Saroya said, which can lead to safety concerns once a mosque is built.

Now comes news that an arrest has been made of a Muslim ‘worshiper’ who was caught in the act of vandalizing his mosque in a similar manner to previous attacks. 

Is he just a nut? Or, did he have instructions to help create a public relations event to elicit sympathy for the local Muslim population at this particular time when tensions are high in St. Cloud?  We may never know the answer because his story will never go beyond random-drunk-guy acting crazy!

Mosque vandal St. Cloud

Abdourahamane Diallo, a worshiper at the mosque, was arrested in the act of vandalizing St. Cloud Islamic Center.

From the St. Cloud Times (hat tip:  June):

A St. Cloud man was arrested early Thursday after a report of vandalism at the Islamic Center of St. Cloud, in the 300 block of Fifth Avenue South.

Abdourahamane Diallo, 29, told officers he had vandalized the Islamic Center and a vehicle because he was frustrated and had lost an expensive phone earlier in the evening, according to a report from the St. Cloud Police Department. [Oh sure, you lose your phone and then go attack a mosque!  Give me a break!—ed]

Police were called to the site shortly before 5 a.m. They learned that the window in a door and a window in a nearby vehicle had been broken while several people were attending prayer inside the center. Witnesses chased Diallo from the building to the end of the block and were walking him back to the scene when police arrived, the report said.

[….]

Diallo told officers he regularly attended prayer at the Islamic Center in the past.

Next time you hear about some mosque being attacked by vandals consider the very real possibility that it is an inside job!

Our extensive archive on St. Cloud going back to 2008 is here.  St. Cloud is being colonized with Somalis with the help of Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota!

See Wednesday’s excellent opinion piece in the St. Cloud Times by AJ Kern, here.

Want to save your town from this?  Time to make Muslim immigration a major issue for 2016!

Obama is transforming American towns and cities with migrants; called “social engineering writ large”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 7, 2015

Leo Hohmann, writing at World Net Daily, has another in what is turning into a series on Obama’s plan to change America by changing the people.

Chris Farrell, Director of Research at Judicial Watch, characterizes it as “social engineering writ large.”

However, one of the revelations in this article entitled ‘Mayors join Obama’s ‘welcoming’ parade for immigrants’  is that the social engineering began long before Obama took office!

According to Nashville citizen activist Joanne Bregman, it began in earnest during the Bush Administration!

We told you about Atlanta and public-enemy-number-one—David Lubell—here last October in our post on the ‘dirty dozen mayors’ selling out America! https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/10/02/welcoming-america-announces-dirty-dozen-mayors-who-invite-illegal-alien-children-to-their-cities/

Hohmann begins his narrative with news from ‘Welcoming’ Atlanta:

For the millions of immigrants and refugees who might feel unwelcome in Georgia, Texas, Alabama and any other state not on board with President Obama’s plans to “build welcoming communities” for “new Americans,” Mayor Kasim Reed has a message: Come to Atlanta.

[….]

City spokeswoman Melissa Mullinax told WND that Reed began working with Welcoming America more than a year ago.

Welcoming America is headed by David Lubell, a close associate of President Obama who met with the president when he announced his executive amnesty plans in Nashville last November. Lubell’s group was hatched in 2010 with $150,000 in seed money from billionaire George Soros and is now flush with federal grants.  [‘Welcoming America,’ patterned after Lubell’s earlier group ‘Welcoming Tennessee,’ first came to my attention at an Office of Refugee Resettlement ‘stakeholders’ meeting here in Lancaster, PA in 2013.—ed]

Gotta get those Democrat voters registered!

According to city documents, Reed agreed on Sept. 17, 2014, to implement a list of 20 recommendations from the Welcoming Atlanta Working Group, an outgrowth of Lubell’s national Welcoming America. Number 10 on the list was to open “citizenship corners” at local libraries and to “conduct voter registration drives and outreach at City of Atlanta festivals.”

Changing Nashville, TN began in 2001 with a federal grant!

Hohmann continues:

A local activist who opposes new settlements of refugees in Tennessee and asked not to be identified, told WND the city has received thousands of Kurdish and Somali refugees over the past 15 years and most have not assimilated, living in “enclaves.”

“They call Nashville ‘Little Kurdistan,’” she said. “We have the largest Kurdish community in the U.S. thanks to refugee resettlement. They’re mostly Sunni, and most of the Islamic activism has come out of the Kurdish community here.”

Like the mayors in Chicago, Atlanta and L.A., Nashville Mayor Karl Dean has created a special high-level office, the New Americans Advisory Council, to advise him on how to integrate the growing population of foreign-born residents.

Planting seed communities in smaller cities

Nashville’s foray into the immigrant welcoming business began in earnest when it agreed to join a pilot program funded by a federal grant to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 2001. Nashville joined Portland, Oregon, and Lowell, Massachusetts, as the three experimental testing grounds.

That experiment, called Building the New American Community Initiative, contained a mission that became the model for transforming the demographics of cities of all sizes across the U.S.

“The whole point of this grant if you look in retrospect what they were trying to do, is expand the resettlements outside of the traditional gateway cities of L.A., New York, Houston, Boston, Miami and Chicago and plant new seeds throughout the country,” the Nashville activist said.

“They roped in the Chamber of Commerce, which took this federal grant,” she added. “And one of the outgrowths of this twisted thinking is to very quickly get the refugees invested in local government and forming coalitions within their communities.”

There is much, much more, please read it all!

For those of you conflicted about the humanitarian issues involved with refugees and immigrants, make no mistake, this is about money and power, straight up! 

Most refugees (who don’t have an Islamic supremacist agenda) and refugees and immigrants (who aren’t looking for a handout of taxpayer-funded goodies) are pawns for the Chamber of Commerce, big businesses and progressives hungry for power.  Is it all about money for the Republican elitists who turn a blind eye?

Michigan: Lutherans bring in the bucks to care for ‘unaccompanied alien children’ sent there (or soon to be sent there?)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 6, 2015

Michigan Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence cheers the news that more money is coming to her district for illegal aliens magically transformed into refugees.

What she won’t understand until it is too late, is that the arrival of thousands of refugees in Michigan will squeeze Americans, especially the African Americans, at the bottom rung of the pay scale.   Michigan is in the top five states receiving refugees and yet they are adding alien children into the mix.

But, what the heck, even as states increase poverty, these ‘church’ groups have to make a living!

From the Detroit Free Press:

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has awarded a Michigan social services group $2.2 million to house unaccompanied immigrant children, U.S. Rep. Brenda Lawrence announced today.

US Rep Brenda Lawrence is happy that the Lutherans are flooding Michigan with refugees and alien children.

It was not immediately known how many children would receive or had received residential services under the grant to Lutheran Social Services of Michigan or whether any other groups were receiving grants in the state as well.

No surprise!  No one will return calls!

Calls and emails to Lutheran Social Services of Michigan and the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, from the Free Press seeking more information were not immediately returned.

According to data on the ORR’s website, only 235 unaccompanied immigrant children had been placed in Michigan in the last two years, far less than the number placed in neighboring states including Ohio. [I wonder if the new grant is in anticipation of Michigan getting more of the UACs—ed]

[….]

Some 63,000 undocumented children have been placed throughout the U.S. in the last two years, the ORR’s website said.

In announcing the grant, Lawrence, D-Southfield, said the grant assists unaccompanied minors who “seek relief from the violence and poverty that threatens their very existence in their home countries.”

They can hardly be described as being faith-based while living off of taxpayer boodle!  Doesn’t sound like Christian charity to me!

“Lutheran Social Services truly lives up to their faith-based mission statement to serve the people most in need of help and I am proud to see them receive this substantial federal grant,” she said, adding that she believes it also time for Congress to address comprehensive immigration reform.

Lutheran Social Services of Michigan is the largest refugee resettlement agency in the state, Lawrence said, providing thousands of families from dozens of countries.

So, it is the Lutherans resettling most of the Muslim refugees to Michigan?

Other of the nine major contractors are also busy overloading Michigan, go here to see the handy list of subcontractors/contractors working in Michigan and your state too!

For new readers, for years we have covered the ‘unaccompanied minors’ (one of the government’s original names for the youths illegally crossing the border).  Click here for all of our previous posts.

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service were the two ‘big dogs’ doing the “resettlement” of the children (Obama’s new refugees) until two other federal contractors eclipsed them.  Grant recipients Baptist Child and Family Services and Southwest Key Programs  are now on the scene devouring federal cash as well.

St. Cloud Times weaves conspiracy theory about “secret conversations;” says private meetings no longer allowed in America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 4, 2015

An editorial yesterday in the St. Cloud Times makes me laugh!

It was only last week that they called on a professional communicator, Professor Aric Putnam from a Catholic college, to call me out for promoting conspiracy theories, here.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the St. Cloud State Muslim Student Association organized a public meeting in St. Cloud in April. That tells you who is running the show in St. Cloud. And, by the way, has the St. Cloud Times checked CAIR’s “facts?” Could someone point me to that story. Photo: Jason Wachter, jwachter@stcloudtimes.com

Now, that very same paper says that citizens in America are no longer allowed to exercise their Constitutional right to peaceably assemble in a group of like-minded people!

Our meeting was by invitation only!

We were receiving threats that “progressive activists” were planning to disrupt a meeting we (ACT for America chapter leader and myself) were holding in St. Cloud.

We wanted our guests to not be subjected to hateful vitriol by a bunch of Leftwing community agitators. 

And, frankly, remember readers, you are not obligated to invite hostile media to any meeting in America!

Is the St. Cloud Times saying here that  it is not permitted, in the people’s republic of Minnesota, to hold private meetings?  Could they be spinning conspiracy theories themselves?

Talk about scare tactics!  It is a joke—“secret conversations!”  No wonder small city newspapers are dying.

Here is the editorial yesterday (hat tip:  Margaret):

Let’s keep talking, but let’s have those talks in public.

[….]

Unfortunately, there also have been some bad — or worse — secret conversations. [EEEK!!!—ed] Topping that list was the April 23 visit from Ann Corcoran, editor and founder of Refugee Resettlement Watch. She traveled all the way from Maryland to host an invitation-only meeting to promote her organization’s mission to “educate citizens about Refugee Resettlement Policy of the U.S. Government.”

Corcoran’s presentation was not open to the public. So while it’s impossible to know what she covered, a sampling of her opinions posted online indicate her message was likely rooted in disparaging all Muslims and especially those from Somalia.

To be clear, there are valid questions to ask federal elected officials about U.S. immigration policies they refuse to change.

However, Corcoran’s tactics — from secret meetings to extremist stereotyping — don’t have Washington, D.C. as their target. Instead, she’s much more focused on exploiting and expanding local fear of the unknown. Then, of course, it’s time for her to pack her bags and move to the next struggling community.

Struggling communities, here I come!

By the way, go here (scroll down to April 23, Part 1 and Part 2) to listen to my radio interview immediately following our “secret meeting,” so you can hear the gist of what we discussed in private—that every town in America receiving third world refugees (chosen by the UN) has the right to the FACTS on what is happening to their community.

Hey, I will bet you a million bucks that CAIR has held private meetings in St. Cloud and that the St. Cloud Times never threw a hissy-fit about their private (secret) conversations!  Why? Fear!

Amarillo, TX teacher, who works with refugees, is Obama’s Teacher of the Year

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 2, 2015

It makes me laugh (almost) to see how clever Obama and his comrades are in promoting its ‘welcoming’ meme to the media and to make it harder for teachers to speak up about their troubled and overloaded multicultural classrooms.

Shanna Peeples received the Teacher of the Year award this week. Ms. Peeples works with Somali and Iraqi high school students in overloaded Amarillo. Hat tip: Frank http://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2015/04/29/obama-honoring-texas-teacher-who-works-with-war-refugees

Amarillo, Texas schools are in a shambles as we have reported here, here and here.

In 2012 and ever since, the mayor of the city, has been begging the resettlement contractors to slow the flow of refugees coming into the city.

To its credit, Catholic Charities did request that the US State Department not send its usual allotment to Amarillo and what did the State Department do—it sent the same large number to another contractor in town!

This is a quote in December 2014 from Nancy Koons, the director of Catholic Charities who recognized the crisis the Amarillo Independent School District (AISD) was having:

It wasn’t long before I heard from numerous concerned residents and staff from the Amarillo Independent School District. It was clear that the increasing rate of resettlement needed to slow down significantly to allow the community to catch up with challenges brought about by dramatic demographic changes.

I invited officials from USCCB in Washington D.C., and the state refugee coordinator from Austin to meet with representatives from AISD to hear their challenges.

At this meeting, AISD representatives graciously articulated extraordinary challenges in the schools. They begged USCCB and the state refugee coordinator to slow down the rate of resettlement to give AISD and the community the opportunity to “catch up,” and enable them to better serve all of the student population.

So what happened?  As I just said, Catholic Charities did cut its numbers, but the US State Department simply sent Catholic Charities usual allotment to another contractor in town!

By the way, Amarillo is one more meatpacking town…see what I mean about BIG MEAT changing America!  And, it is a city that has been developing as apocket of resistance.’

Obama and comrades, with this pick for teacher of the year (I am sure she is a wonderful teacher), cleverly cut off criticism from other teachers who might be troubled by the extremely large refugee load they carry in their classrooms.

Texas is the Number 1 resettlement state in the nation. Turning red state Texas blue?

Endnote: I’m going to urge you all to read or re-read this article by Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily in which he very succinctly describes Obama’s plan to seed American cities with migrants (legal and illegal), and you darn well better be welcoming—-or else!
