Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID) in position to reform refugee program (if he had a will to do it)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 24, 2016

This is another in my series on Congress and the budget process as it relates to the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program (RAP).  See Texas last week, here.

Simpson represents Idaho’s 2nd District which wikipedia describes below:

In addition to Boise….

Other major cities in the 2nd district include Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Twin Falls, and Rexburg. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has a strong presence in the district; a member of the LDS Church has represented this district continuously since 1951.  [See our recent post about the increasing role of the Mormon church in resettlement of third worlders to America—ed]


Rep. Mike Simpson has been in Idaho politics since 1980. He could help reform the Refugee Admissions Program if he had a will to do so. If I lived in the district I would be researching which industries looking for cheap immigrant labor support his campaign. You should know that on Conservative Reviews Liberty Score card, Simpson has an ‘F’

Regular readers know that Boise and Twin Falls are major resettlement sites in Idaho with large numbers of Muslim refugees arriving to work in places like the Chobani yogurt plant (go here for our huge archive on Idaho).

A recent article at Magic Valley reports on Rep. Simpson’s views on many issues including immigration (he supports ‘comprehensive immigration reform’, aka amnesty, because he says we need workers).

And then here is a standard squishy response on arguably one of the hottest issues in Idaho—refugee resettlement in Boise and Twin Falls.

What are your views on the refugee resettlement program and on accepting refugees from the Middle East, and from Syria in particular? Do you support making any changes to the program or the vetting process? Should we be letting in more refugees? Fewer refugees?

I continue to support the American principle that we will not return a foreign national to a country where his or her life or freedom would be threatened based on their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. That being said, I am still concerned about the current vetting process, in particular for refugees from Syria, and I will continue to support efforts to strengthen that process. The real issue is that this Administration has not been able to effectively communicate to the American people that they can keep us safe. To regain our trust, the State Department and Department of Homeland Security must communicate a clear plan for the screening of Syrian refugees that is stringent and thorough enough to ensure those entering the United States will do no harm.

His answer demonstrates the usual dodge—it’s the Obama Administration’s fault for not communicating clearly how they will keep us safe.  And, no answer to the question of more refugees!

He doesn’t tell you that as the 5th in seniority (he has been in Congress for 18 years!) on the powerful House Appropriations Committee, he is in the catbird seat to do something about security screening of Syrians.

(Simpson is not a member of the House Freedom Caucus nor did he support Rep. Brian Babin’s efforts to cut the funding for the RAP earlier this fall, see here.)

And, what does he mean by “not return a foreign national.”  This isn’t a question of sending someone back, it is a question of bringing them in in the first place!

Again, it is about the money! He could be working to cut the funding for the program until the security screening (the vetting process) is made safe.  Washington representatives like Mike Simpson want you to think it is the Democrats in the White House and the agencies—DOS and Homeland Security—who need to do their jobs.  But, in reality he has more power than they do, because he is one of the key members of Congress holding the purse strings!  He just doesn’t want his voters to know that!

Ironically he says this about the budget process on his website:

It is important for Americans to understand how the federal appropriations process works so that they can advocate for responsible federal spending.

On that he and I agree and that is why I am hounding you all, if you really want to try to get the RAP under control, get it reformed or stopped altogether, you too must understand the appropriations and budget process.

So what do you do if you live in Rep. Mike Simpson’s district?

There is only one thing you can do to slow this flow (besides electing Donald Trump) which at this rate would bring around 20,000 Syrians to America by next fall and that is to persuade your member of Congress and US Senators to DEFUND the program in the lame duck Budget debate coming in November. 

Simpson and other members could stop or slow the flow using their power of the purse!

See the first in a series of posts on the lame duck budget process by clicking here. This is not about Obama! Your Congressional Representatives have the power to rein this in if they wanted to (and they don’t want you to know that they have that power!).

You have 15 days before election day to get a commitment from your Washington, DC representatives to DEFUND!

Citizens concerned about the impact of refugees on the 2nd District of Idaho must haunt Simpson’s campaign for those 15 days!  Frankly, you might be better off with a new representative, no matter what party, but with no power, than a powerful Republican member like Simpson not working for you, but against you.

And, don’t forget Idaho’s US Senators and other Congressman.  There are only 4 total members of the Idaho delegation, here.

Maryland: CAIR wants 14-year-old girl investigated in case of threatening note to Iraqi refugee family

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2016

Thanks to Wikileaks, we are becoming increasingly aware (more than ever before) of how the mainstream media presents ‘news’ in a way to push an agenda or oppose candidates they don’t like.

A prime example……

I literally sat here with my mouth open when I read this story (the whole story!) at WBAL in Baltimore by Saliqua Khan (Islamophobic note we are told in the headline!).

If I had stopped reading at paragraph ten, I would have a completely different idea of what happened.  Here is what we are told first:

DUNDALK, Md. —A civil rights group is asking authorities to investigate a hate message as a bias-motivated crime after a note was left at the Baltimore County home of a family of Iraqi Muslim refugees.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, on Friday called on state and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate a note left at the family’s Dundalk home.


Zainab Chaudry speaking for CAIR in Maryland is quoted as blaming it on…you guessed it! Donald Trump!

CAIR said the hate message, left on the door of the family’s home, said, “Terrorist, Leave, No one wants you here, Your kind is a disgrace, 9/11 was your fault.”

The message also included a crude drawing of a Muslim woman wearing a head scarf (hijab) and holding a bomb, with the comment, “Take that (expletive) off your head.”

The victim’s father, who’s family recently found refuge in the U.S. and speaks very little English, said he’s worried about his family’s safety after his 11-year-old daughter received the note.

“Now, I am scared and worried about my child,” the victim’s father, Raad Lalqaraghuli, said. “I was scared, no sleeping.”

The Washington-based civil rights organization said the targeting of the Maryland Muslim family is the latest in a series of hate incidents directed at American Muslims, mosques and Islamic centers nationwide in the past week.

At this point I felt bad for this Muslim family (no sympathy for CAIR!)…..

But, now get this! The police already investigated and determined it was a squabble between CHILDREN!

Continue reading:

Baltimore County police have determined that a dispute between children led to an offensive note left on at the apartment of a Muslim family.


Officers were able to identify a 14-year-old girl, whose family lives in the same building, as the person who wrote the note. When officers met with the girl and her parents, she stated that she wrote the note because two of the children in the family had “cursed at her and made offensive gestures.”

Officers explained to the girl and the family the seriousness of what she had done. The girl’s parents were cooperative and assured officers that they would handle the matter at home.

The investigation indicated that while the note was offensive, that no crime had happened.

“This is nothing that happened as a result of an organized hate group this was a dispute between two children,” Baltimore County police spokeswoman Elise Armacost.

So if you stopped reading at paragraph ten, you would never know this!

By the way, Dundalk is a poor suburb of Baltimore and it is no surprise that resettlement contractors likely placed the Iraqi family here.

For more on Zainab Choudry, I wrote about her here in 2013 at Potomac Tea Party Report.

Federal Refugee contractor World Relief (Evangelicals!) has a new Prez

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2016

And, they must be sending out little press releases about him and the organization as fillers for small news outlets because I’ve seen several puff pieces like this one lately.


Scott Arbeiter, the new Prez of World Relief. We assume he makes about the same salary as his predecessor—around $200,000 from all sources of income. That is small compared to many other of the federal contractors.

But, it reminded me that I hadn’t done an updated financial review of them as I had recently on Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service and the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI).

The new President is Scott Arbeiter, you can learn a little about him here.

BTW, World Relief’s full name is World Relief Corporation of National Association of Evangelicals. It is headquartered in Baltimore, MD.

Here is a bit of the puff-piece at Christianity Today:

World Relief, a Christian humanitarian organization, resettled in the United States nearly twice the number of refugees than usual.


In September, World Relief settled 1,400 refugees through churches and its 26 offices across the country. In the past year, the organization has worked with 9,759 refugees, the largest number of refugees to go through its office since 1999, according to Christianity Today, having partnered with 1,180 congregations.


World Relief is one of nine organizations authorized by the federal government to help resettle refugees. Others include Church World Service, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), Episcopal Migration Ministries, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

I laughed at the use of the word “authorized” as if WR only had to get an authorization (a stamp of approval) and then was completely operating with Christian ‘charity’ instead of mostly federal tax dollars.  This is how they spin the lazy media, never mentioning that this is a business—a business that could not function without your money!

Incidentally, it is World Relief  (a member in good standing of the Christian LEFT) that sent around a memo to staff over a year ago to tell them to not give out any R & P Abstracts for any of you calling looking for the plan for your local community.

Checking the most recent Form 990 for World Relief we see that they had a total gift/grants income of $58,487,081 and $42,589,050 was provided by you, the US taxpayer, making their federally-funded share of their budget 73% taxpayer funded.

I went back 6 years and their income from you jumped about $11.5 million over that time.  That of course correlates with the fact that they placed more refugees into your towns each year and since they are paid by the head, that makes sense.

Here is a screen shot of page 9 (this info. is usually on page 9) of World Relief’s most recent 990.  You can find several years of WR’s 990’s here if you want to have a deeper look into their finances.  All IRS 501(c)3 organizations are required to make their financial information public, so remember that if you are trying to get Form 990s for a local group.




Take note of line 2 a (Travel loan commission).  I told you about that money the other day.  It is yours too. The contractor acts as a collection agency for refugees to pay back their travel loans (federal dollars paid for the tickets) and the contractor (WR in this case) gets to keep a cut of everything they collect.

Is World Relief working where you live.  Go here to access their interactive map:

Trump should have mentioned Mama Merkel’s mess as migrants sue German government

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

German Chancellor Angela Merkel flung Germany’s gates open wide over a year ago and the world poured in.


Hillary Clinton and Angela Merkel must never be permitted to serve together as leaders of two great world powers!

With tens of thousands seeking asylum (permanent refugee status), the German government gave them a temporary status until their claims could be processed.  That temporary status came with a stipulation that they could not bring their extended family members until granted permanent asylum.

Since then, thousands of refugees have successfully sued using international law.

Beware America!  This is why protecting our national sovereignty is so important!  We cannot permit any treaties or agreements that would allow foreign courts to dictate immigration/refugee policy here (but we may be doing that already!).

What is happening to Germany is why we need to revisit any such agreements if Donald Trump is elected President in a few short weeks.

Here is the news that should be concerning for all Western nations who wish to remain free.

More than 17,000 refugees have complained against the partial asylum status, known as subsidiary protection, offered by the German Government.

On arrival in Germany refugees are given the form of asylum from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF).

But the partial status which means they are safe from being deported, includes a two year ban on families coming to join them.

In the first eight months of this year 90 per cent of refugees who challenged the subsidiary protection status won their case and were granted full rights under the Geneva Refugee Convention.

NPR sends ‘Islam expert’ (not!) SHEREEN MARISOL MERAJI to Montana

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 19, 2016

Sheesh! Just like the 60 Minutes ‘story’ I couldn’t bring myself to watch, I can’t listen to this B.S. from race- baiting NPR reporter SHEREEN MARISOL MERAJI. See her bio.


Shereen Marisol Meraji, NPR resident expert on Islam and self-described “caffeine addicted 90s hip-hop head.”

I traveled to Montana and met the truly wonderful people (the same ones she is disparaging) in the Flathead this past summer who have legitimate concerns about how the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program could bring unwanted change (dumped on them from Washington) to their beautiful rural community in far Northwest Montana.

(Do our tax dollars help fund biased NPR? If so, let’s make it our aim in January (when Trump is elected) to cut any funds they still get from us, the taxpayers, for next year. And stop listening to NPR!)

Ms. Meraji reports that everything she heard in Montana that was critical of Islam is “fiction.”  So what makes her an Islamic scholar?  Here is how she describes herself at her twitter page:

Exploring race and identity with @nprcodeswitch and reporting on everything in between. Persia-Rican Zumba dancing caffeine addicted 90s hip-hop head.

Alrighty then…sounds like an expert.

By the way, her disparagement of Act for America should make anyone who is not already a member, run over to their website and join right now!

Here is Act for America! Join now!

100 refugees approved for Northwest Arkansas

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 19, 2016

Arkansas, like West Virginia and Montana, has received very few refugees over the years, but all that will change with the Dept. of State’s (DOS) approval of a new resettlement agency that will ‘welcome’ 100 refugees beginning next month.

All of the new sites*** are needed because Obama has ‘determined’ that the US will admit a huge increase (to 110,000) in the number of refugees admitted to your towns and cities in FY2017.


The Obama Administration is moving fast to get as many new refugee sites open as possible before January in case Donald Trump is elected.

The Obama DOS is on a crash program now to get as many placed in your towns as they can by Inauguration Day in January (in case Trump is elected) and place as many in the pipeline as they can making it more difficult for a new administration to put the breaks on.

There is only one entity that could slow the flow and they can do it next month and that is Congress (if there is a will)!  Congress (not Obama!) has the ultimate power to DEFUND the large increase in the number of refugees coming in. These contractors, like this new one in Northwest Arkansas have virtually zero money of their own!

The story, here, and below demonstrates how impotent Arkansas’s governor is to do anything to stop the migration to the state.

From KATV Little Rock:

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS (TALK BUSINESS & POLITICS) — The questions surrounding refugees from the Middle East and other parts of the world will soon come to Arkansas as Canopy Northwest Arkansas works to bring 100 or more refugees from around the world to the region.


Emily Linn is the executive director of Canopy. She says Arkansas has great jobs in poultry plants (yippee!). How much is this resettlement being driven behind the scenes by BIG MEAT? LOL! BIG CHICKEN in this case!


In response to news publicity about the global refugee crisis, concerned residents in Northwest Arkansas (NWA) began meeting in January and formed Canopy Northwest Arkansas, a 501(c)3 non-profit with the mission of settling refugees in NWA.

“We consulted with refugee agencies operating nationally and we learned that there’s a need for new communities to open up to refugees. So we started looking into what it might look like for refugees to come to NWA and what we found is that our community has an incredible capacity to welcome refugees and help them really thrive here,” said Emily Linn, director of Canopy Northwest Arkansas.

Linn cited the growing economy in NWA as a reason refugees would do well.

Here comes the poultry industry! Surely, the Chamber of Commerce is not far behind. (I always wonder if they tell the incoming refugees that they are going to a meat or poultry plant town).

“We have great jobs for folks who don’t even speak English, for example, in the manufacturing or poultry processing industry or agriculture. We also have great jobs and we have a need for people to come and work in very high skilled jobs,” she said. “For instance, we have a brand new hospital opening up in Springdale, Arkansas Children’s and the Washington Regional Hospital is growing and expanding, and there’s a need for very highly educated individuals as well, and so we have this wide variety of employment options.”

I keep seeing this nonsense about skilled labor in the refugee flow. It is bogus. If there are doctors and engineers etc. in the flow they must become re certified in the US which is a long and expensive process. The closest any refugee doctor will get to a hospital is scrubbing the floors at night.

Canopy is a subcontractor of LIRS (see my previous post this morning, here).

Canopy Northwest Arkansas partners with the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), one of nine national resettlement agencies that contract with the State Department to run the refugee resettlement program. LIRS is the agency that will assign refugees to Canopy after the refugees go through an extensive screening process, sometimes lasting more than two years.

Continue reading here.  I see no evidence, at least in this story, that there is any pocket of resistance in Northwest Arkansas.

***Here are some of the new sites we have learned about in recent weeks being set up to accommodate, among other ethnic groups, a large number of Syrian Sunni Muslims.  We heard that there are 47 of these new target sites:

Asheville, NC

Rutland, VT

Reno, NV

Ithaca, NY

Missoula, MT

Aberdeen, SD

Charleston, WV

Fayetteville, AR

Blacksburg, VA

Pittsfield, MA

Northhampton, MA

Flint, MI

Bloomington, IN

Traverse City, MI

Watertown, NY (maybe)

I just created a new ‘tag’ and I should have done it a long time ago, will try to keep it up going forward—New resettlement sites.  For new readers, here is the old list of sites Apparently the feds are not updating the list because they likely don’t want you to know where all of the new offices are located. Secrecy is the watchword of refugee resettlement in America!

Mormon church is getting on the refugee resettlement bandwagon

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 19, 2016

But, they aren’t a resettlement contractor (yet!).


Mormon Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah. We have money to give to refugees.

I previously told you about the Mormon donation to the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, here.  And, now here is more news (a puff piece) about contributions to the other eight contractors featuring Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.  I can only assume the Mormon church has run out of poor Americans to help as they are moving on to helping what is becoming a massive flow of needy Muslims from the Middle East and Africa entering the US.

When I read this story at Utah’s Deseret News, my first thought was to wonder if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was actually ultimately angling to become a resettlement contractor in order to receive lucrative government grants.

The nine contractors*** working for the federal government have a monopoly on the program at the moment. Are the Mormons attempting to buy good will?

In order to break in to the club, to become a contractor, an organization must prove it has experience with the program.  Is that what is happening here as we learn that the Mormons are being trained by LIRS in this case?

For new readers, the contractors are paid by the head to resettle the refugees and representatives of the nine meet in DC weekly to divvy-up the refugee cases coming in (they bid for bodies as one of our most astute observers quips). Do the Mormons want in?

Deseret News:

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — A flash flood of Mormon volunteers was a spring surprise for Lutherans who run refugee resettlement organizations in 25 U.S. states.

Motivated by statements of church leaders encouraging them to help refugees, the influx of Mormons prompted resettlement centers of the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services to add volunteer training sessions in places like South Carolina, Colorado and Arizona.


LIRS CEO Hartke is chomping at the bit about this new batch of money coming in. LIRS is 95% funded by you—the taxpayer!

On Tuesday, the budding relationship expanded again, as LIRS leaders visited Salt Lake City and received a check for $130,000 from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The LDS Church also pledged an additional $520,000 in commodities such as food and mattresses. [I would really like to understand this mattress thing because there were mattresses involved somehow in the resettlement that happened in my MD county back in 2007!—ed]

“We’ve been chomping at the bit on building this relationship, which is evolving on two levels,” said Linda Hartke, president and CEO of LIRS. “On the local level, we’re seeing greater interest and more volunteers coming forward.


Tuesday’s donation was part of $5 million in cash and commodities the LDS Church has pledged to the nine U.S. refugee resettlement agencies, which operate over 300 affiliates helping newly arrived refugees settle into local communities.

In August, the church gave $2 million to the two resettlement agencies that work in Utah — $1.25 million to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services and $750,000 to the International Rescue Committee.

On Monday, church officials will travel to the East Coast to give $2.35 million to the remaining six resettlement agencies.

Continue reading here.

If you are a Mormon and not thrilled with importing more unvetted Muslims from Syria, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Burma (Esar Met!), you might want to start speaking up at church.

These are the nine members of the federal resettlement contractor club.  If the Mormons are trying to break in, I’m going to love reporting on the battle.

60 Minutes spewing B.S. on refugee screening/travel costs

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 18, 2016

I can’t even bring myself to watch the recent 60 Minutes program on the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program, but think I need to say something about a couple of bits of B.S. from CBS’s written report on the show.

First on security and health screening, this is what 60 Minutes reports:

US Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson testifies before a House Appropriations Committee Homeland Security Subcommittee hearing on the Homeland Security Department budget on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, on March 26, 2015. AFP PHOTO/NICHOLAS KAMM (Photo credit should read NICHOLAS KAMM/AFP/Getty Images)

Director of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, on 60 Minutes.

Johnson explains that the process begins with United Nations. Long before refugees make the journey to a new home, they are interviewed multiple times by the U.N. for their vital statistics — including where they came from and who they know — and given an iris scan to establish their identity. After that initial assessment, the U.N. then refers refugees to a country for resettlement.

B.S. meter….

So we are expected to believe and trust that the United Nations, with its vast network of Muslim employees, will screen (interview!) refugees fairly.

The refugees are able to tell their ‘stories,’ but there is no way to establish the truthfulness of those ‘stories’ because no one can call home to Syria.

Then they get an “iris scan” which may have value later if they commit some crime or terrorist act and their identity needs to be determined. But, there is no way this scan has any meaning beyond that.  There is no way to go back to the Syrian government and say, gee, we would really like to see a past IRIS SCAN to compare to the one we just got from a ‘refugee’ living in Jordan for example.

60 Minutes continues:

If that country is the U.S., a State Department resettlement center takes over, runs background checks, and creates a file on the refugee. From there, the Department of Homeland Security, led by specially trained interrogators, conducts additional interviews looking for gaps or inconsistencies in their stories. All that information is then run though U.S. security databases for any red flags. If approved, the refugee goes through medical screening by a team of doctors prior to arriving in the country.

B.S. meter:

We have already heard ad nauseum that our Dept. of Homeland Security (yes, Johnson, your FBI!) has no data from Syria that would allow them to find gaps or inconsistencies in stories.  Did 60 Minutes ever mention what FBI Director Comey and others have been saying for months?

And, then on the medical screening B.S.  Did 60 Minutes mention that, even if they are screened, we let them in with communicable diseases like TB and HIV/AIDS anyway?  You see how this works, they mention the screening, but don’t mention part two!  Your assumption is the screening actually screens out someone!

60 Minutes continues:

The entire process, Johnson says, takes between 18 and 24 months.

B.S. meter….

Did 60 Minutes tell its audience that the Obama Administration (Jeh Johnson) sped up security screening for Syrians and the whole process was taking only 3 months from start to finish over the summer in order to reach Obama’s goal to admit 10,000 Syrians before September 30th?


Gina Kassem (US State Department): Refugees want to repay those travel loans to help others get in to the US. Well, Ms. Kassem, how about releasing the data you have, for years! refused to provide the taxpaying public. What is the repayment rate? Did 60 Minutes even think to ask?

60 Minutes on travel loans:

When refugees do arrive in the U.S., they’re expected to repay the government for their plane tickets. As Kassem explains in the clip above, the government asks refugees resettled in the U.S. to repay the fare six months after they arrive, giving them time to find a job. That money then helps additional refugees resettle in the U.S., which encourages the refugees to repay their fare.

“Because they are indebted to the United States for taking then in,” she says, “they want more people in their situation who are fleeing the violence to be able to take advantage of the program.”

B.S. meter….

Here is how it works, our tax dollars go to the International Organization on Migration (now an agency of the UN) to pay for the plane tickets.  And, yes, refugees are ‘expected’ to repay the loan.  But, get this! The federal non-profit contractor*** that resettled them acts as the collection agency and POCKETS 25% of what it collects adding literally millions more of your dollars to the contractors’ pockets.

We have no idea how many refugees are motivated by this nonsense to repay the loan on schedule to help other refugees get here (what a naive comment!) because the State Department steadfastly refuses to release the repayment data.

And, then have some sympathy for the refugee who gets here with a family of 6, is lucky to have one family member working for $9.00 an hour at a slaughter plant and is expected to repay thousands of dollars of airfare expenses beginning 6 months after arrival.

Teaching indebtedness!  One of the reasons I’ve heard the contractors give for their dunning notices to refugees is it’s a lesson in borrowing money in America and paying it back so as to maintain a good credit rating!

If you feel like it, see more of the 60 Minutes B.S. by clicking here.

You know, it is quite a stunning thing to know a lot about something and then see mainstream media blatantly be untruthful!

*** For new readers, these are the nine major federal contractors reaping millions more of your tax dollars acting as collection agents for the airfare loans that by rights should all go back in to the US Treasury!

World’s most vulnerable: are we responsible for them all?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 13, 2016

This story at the Huffington Post bashing Trump and telling us we must not turn our backs on the “world’s most vulnerable” is not worth reading.


The refugee propagandists’ favorite word!

I simply want to make the point that about every five years the world’s most vulnerable changes and we are expected to “welcome” them all to our towns after hearing the same old propaganda guilt-trip stories like this  one.

Not too long ago it was the Burmese who were most vulnerable (we have taken in around 200,000). And, I remember so well when the Iraqis were the world’s most vulnerable (oh they love that word!) because it was about the same time I began writing RRW. Our Iraqi refugee numbers are climbing toward 200,000.

Then a few years ago it became the Syrian most vulnerables.  And, get ready because we are hearing rumbles that they are gearing up to guilt-trip us about the South Sudanese! Blah, blah, blah!

It never ends!

This HuffPo article concludes with an appeal to send money to the International Rescue Committee which as one of the leading members of the refugee industry receives hundreds of thousands of dollars from the US taxpayer each year—but it is never enough money!

DOS Syrian resettlement pace would bring total in 2017 to over 20,000

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 13, 2016

When the Obama Department of State (DOS) ‘consulted’ with the US Senate on the number of refugees to be admitted in fiscal year 2017 (which began 2 weeks ago on October 1) they were very cagey about how many Syrians would be in the flow.

However, a refugee contractor in California let the cat out of the bag, here, a few weeks ago saying that he suspected it would be 20,000-30,000 Syrians in a total refugee flow of 110,000.


To all the Republican traitors, by not supporting Donald Trump you are going to let this man virtually run the country. John Podesta has long been an advocate for opening our borders and flooding America with refugees. See our Podesta archive here where our earliest post is in 2009:

Frankly what we get will depend on one thing—whether Donald Trump wins the White House or whether Hillary Clinton (and Bill, with John Podesta as chief of staff) are in the Oval Office.

An aside: As you learn more about the people Hillary has surrounded herself with in the campaign via the Wikileaks e-mail dumps, remember THESE VERY SAME PEOPLE WILL BE IN THE WHITE HOUSE RUNNING THE COUNTRY IF SHE WINS!

Now back to the Syrians (98-99% are Muslims, we are not saving the Christians).

Don’t forget that when Senator Jeff Sessions held his hearing about this year’s plan, he and Senator Cruz got an admission out of the Dept.of Homeland Security that some Syrians (because many don’t have documents and data) have been admitted based on their personal stories!

From Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart:

The Obama administration is on pace to bring 20,000 Syrian refugees into the United States in FY 2017.

The final number of Syrian refugees arriving in the United States this fiscal year will be determined by which candidate–Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump–is inaugurated as president in January 2017.

If Hillary Clinton wins, she will be well positioned to accelerate Syrian refugee resettlement in FY 2017 to the 65,000 she has said she wants to come into the country annually.

If Donald Trump wins, he has committed to suspending Syrian refugee resettlement.

A recent Breitbart/Gravis poll shows that 59 percent of voters oppose Hillary Clinton’s plan to increase Syrian refugee resettlement in the United States.

See the map!

I was doing a little numbers research last night myself and got a slightly larger number of Syrians than did Leahy, but I suspect more data was loaded between the time Leahy did his research and I did mine.  Below is a map from the Refugee Processing Center (DOS data storage website) where you can see the number of Syrians who arrived in your state since October 1.  The total was 686 (as of last evening) which means, at this pace, they could easily reach 5,000 by Inauguration Day in January.

Top receiving states are Michigan, California, Texas, Arizona and Maryland (ahhhh!).  Maryland is never in the top for resettlement states, so what is up with this? Most of the 52 that went to Maryland over the last 12 days were placed in Baltimore with a handful in Silver Spring and 2 in Riverdale.

Clear path in Maryland as governor has been silent

I am guessing the new enthusiasm for Maryland is that the mayor of Baltimore has been merrily inviting Muslims to live in that hellhole (powder keg!) and Maryland’s Republican Governor made some squawks when other Republican governors said they didn’t want Syrians, but since then he has not said a word (thus quietly supporting the refugee resettlement program).

Map from the DOS Refugee Processing Center as of last evening, October 12, 2016. 686 Syrians admitted in first 12 days of Fiscal year 2017.
