Where is the House Judiciary Committee on Obama’s refugee plan? Where is the hearing?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 24, 2016

The Refugee Act of 1980 requires a hearing in both the House and Senate Judiciary Committees on the Presidential ‘determination’ on the number of refugees the President is proposing for the upcoming fiscal year—in advance of the fiscal year.

FY2017 begins a week from today!

We know that Senator Jeff Sessions scheduled a hearing and that the Obama State Department refused to attend (see here).

***Update*** Senate hearing postponed from last week is now scheduled for Wednesday the 28th of September.  Details here.

But where is the House?

ryan-and-gowdy

Rep. Trey Gowdy is Chairman of the subcommittee responsible for the Refugee Admissions Program. He did not sign the Babin letter where more than 30 of his colleagues (found the time to sign) are asking that funding be stopped for refugees coming from terrorist-producing regions of the world. We are told that Gowdy has since written his own PRIVATE letter to Speaker Ryan on the subject. If there is a letter (doubtful). Why the secrecy?

I just checked the House Judiciary Committee hearing schedule and there is nothing scheduled this week on the largest and most dangerous number of refugees we have proposed to admit to the US probably ever!

Immigration Subcommittee Chairman Trey Gowdy has a hearing scheduled this week on how New Orleans became a sanctuary city, but nothing else.

(It is Gowdy’s subcommittee that would be responsible for reforming the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program, but no one in 30 years, including Gowdy, has had the guts to tackle it.)

I’m sure that New Orleans illegal alien problem is a very important issue, but….

no where near as important as 110,000 refugees (20,000-30,000 Syrians) arriving in the US beginning next Saturday!

And, so far, Chairman of the full committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, doesn’t have any hearing scheduled either when you know that the Administration will open the flood gates in October trying to get as many of their 110,000 in here before Obama leaves office in January.

Are Goodlatte and Gowdy going to sit by silently and watch?

I want you to have a look at the Congressional calendar (below) as it stands right now for the last few months and through the end of they year.  They can’t wait to get that Continuing Budget Resolution (CR) done and get out of DC so they can campaign.

And, the reason we once again will be looking at a Budget rush-job is that Congress (under the leadership of Speaker Paul Ryan) once again did not get their work done in a timely fashion.

Look at this calendar! Frankly they shouldn’t be off for 6 weeks beginning this Friday!

 

2016housecalendar

Most recent calendar I could find, there may be an updated one.

 

But, don’t despair, you have perhaps one of the best opportunities to make their lives miserable as the majority of your representatives will be up for re-election on November 8th. You will need to reach them in their districts on this, in my opinion, the most critical issue this country faces—immigration and specifically refugee resettlement!  Be at every townhall they hold. Picket their offices and their homes if you must to get their attention.

Don’t let any member of the House, or US Senator, tell you it is too late for this year!

They will be coming back to finish the budget during the lame duck session and you need to ‘educate’ them at home because they can cut out funding for the refugee program in the lame duck!  More on that later.

BTW, I don’t know where they are at the moment on the CR (short term funding of the federal government), but keep telling them you want the Refugee Admissions Program defunded (use the word moratorium!) because as frustrating as it is trying to get through to them, your persistence alone sends them a warning message about how important this issue is to you (and to the future of America!).

For any of you who want to read-up on the issue, everything I’ve written on Congress’ role as the branch of government that doles out the money for Obama’s programs is tagged ‘Where is Congress.’

Resettlement industry wants 100,000 Syrians in FY17, 210,000 total refugees and billions more from Congress

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 23, 2016

Just to recap, Obama’s final ‘determination’ sent to Capitol Hill a week ago calls for a ceiling*** of 110,000 refugees from all over the world for Fiscal year 2017 which begins in 8 days.  He did not indicate how many of those would be Syrians but recently we learned that 20,000-30,000 would likely be Syrian Muslims.

the National Clean Energy Summit 7.0 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on September 4, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Political and economic leaders are attending the summit to discuss a domestic policy agenda to advance alternative energy for the country's future.

Hillary and John Podesta (working for George Soros) started the Center for American Progress and you can bet if she gets in the White House, the two of them will open the floodgates to the third world. http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/printgroupProfile.asp?grpid=6709

Thanks to Richard at Blue Ridge Forum for spotting this story at the Center for American Progress (CAP) where the resettlement contractors and their friends spell out what they really want. 

They want the 110,000 to be a floor and not a ceiling and they want 100,000 Syrian Muslims on top of 110,000 other refugees.

They also drop some astounding numbers about how many billions of dollars they want from the REPUBLICAN Congress.

Here is the story from earlier in the week:

After a slow start in fiscal year 2016—in which, by the end of May, the United States had only resettled one-quarter of its stated commitment of 10,000 Syrian refugees—the administration announced on August 29 that it had hit its target. According to the administration’s report to Congress laying out its 2017 resettlement goals—the “Proposed Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year 2017”—the administration now believes it will surpass its original goal, bringing in up to 13,000 Syrians by the end of September.

Most importantly, the report to Congress makes clear that the United States will surpass even the commitment made by Secretary of State John Kerry in September 2015 to bring in 100,000 refugees in FY 2017: It raises the target for resettlement in FY 2017 to 110,000 refugees.

[….]

Human Rights First, for example, has called for the administration to admit 100,000 Syrians next year in addition to 100,000 refugees from the rest of the world.

Whatever number of Syrians the administration ultimately decides to admit, it should view the commitment to resettling 110,000 total refugees in FY 2017 as a floor, rather than a ceiling, and should do everything in its power to increase the number of refugees admitted.

They know what we have been trying to say for weeks! Congress has the power to slow the invasion if they want to because the resettlement contractors have virtually no money of their own. 

They need your money to change your towns!

CAP continues:

Funding is critical, and the ball is in Congress’ court

While the Obama administration has stepped up to raise the numbers of refugees to be resettled, Congress has not, to date, provided a corresponding increase in the funds available to ensure that these individuals are able to resettle smoothly, find livelihoods, and become self-sufficient soon after arrival—a key goal of the U.S. refugee program.

The funding Congress appropriated for FY 2016 was based on an estimate of only 75,000 refugees being resettled. When the administration raised its target to 85,000 refugees, Congress did not increase the funding to match. This means that over the past year, the government has had to resettle more refugees with fewer funds. To make matters worse, Congress will most likely only fund the government for the remainder of the calendar year using a continuing resolution—a stopgap, short-term funding bill rather than a full-year appropriation—likely holding the amount of funding for resettlement to FY 2016 levels. This will become all the more difficult to sustain as the number of refugees admitted grows to 110,000.

Take the Office of Refugee Resettlement, or ORR, as an example. This agency helps integrate newly arrived refugees into American life and society, providing financial and medical assistance, social work and case management, and language and job training programs. It also has primary responsibility for the housing and care of unaccompanied children who arrive in the United States. In FY 2016, the ORR received a little less than $1.7 billion to accomplish these tasks. With an increase in the numbers of both refugees being resettled and unaccompanied children arriving, however, ORR’s budget is stretched thin.

The Refugee Council USA (mentioned below) is the lobbying arm of the resettlement industry in Washington.

The administration’s FY 2017 budget, based on the original goal of resettling 100,000 refugees, calls for the ORR to receive about $2.2 billion, while Refugee Council USA—the main umbrella group for organizations working to resettle and protect refugees—has called for the ORR to receive $2.95 billion. Either way, Congress must come together to provide more funding to the agency.

The Continuing Budget Resolution as it now stands has barely half that much and we are urging Congress to cut even more deeply.

Keep calling them and tell them that you know they, the Republican leadership, hold the cards—not Obama!

We have written a lot about the Refugee Council USA and also about the Center for American Progress, so please use our search function if you want to learn more.

***On this ‘ceiling’ issue: for all the time I have been writing this blog, the industry has been working to make sure the ceiling is met. But, it is only a ceiling.  The President can, during the course of the year, go below the ceiling and in some earlier years a president has.  So it strikes me that if Donald Trump is elected, he could very well just (at minimum) go way below the ‘ceiling’ (tell his Secretary of State to slow it down) after he is inaugurated without even initiating a battle (over Obama’s last determination) in the opening months of his administration.

What makes a town desirable for refugee resettlement explains Blacksburg, VA resident

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 23, 2016

Blacksburg is one of the new refugee seeding sites being considered by the US State State Department.  Recently we learned that there are as many as 47 of them (according to the Reno Gazette-Journal).

melody-warnick

Author Melody Warnick. My questions for Ms. Warnick: How about if you love where you live and want to keep it from becoming something different. Why does keeping it just the way it is, the way one loves it, not as valuable a concept as changing it by changing its people?

Here an expert on loving where you live(!) tells us what she thinks are the features that a town might have that makes that town MOST attractive to the resettlement industry decision makers.

From Quartz (hat tip: Joanne):

In late July, I was one of more than 100 residents of Blacksburg, Virginia, crammed into the local library for the first meeting of the Blacksburg Refugee Partnership. We were there to find out what it would take to bring Syrian refugees to our small town in Virginia.

At first, I’d assumed that our town was too small and isolated to make a good home for refugees. But as a representative from Commonwealth Catholic Charities explained, we had a few things going for us: A university with steady employment opportunities [janitors—ed]. A community of Arabic speakers. And perhaps most importantly, people who really, really wanted to bring Syrian refugees here—not a given in Virginia, considering that the mayor of nearby Roanoke had gone on record saying he didn’t want them. [Poor Roanoke has a long history as a resettlement site, increased crime, social tension, etc., so the mayor is speaking from experience when he said he didn’t want MORE!—ed]

My town’s excitement over the possibility made me curious about the places in the US where refugees are most likely to thrive. During the 2016 fiscal year, the 10,000 Syrian refugees who fled their war-torn homeland for the United States have ended up all over the place—ranging from major cities like Chicago and Houston to more unexpected locations like Clearwater, Florida, and Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Here is Melody Warnick’s list of the features she thinks a refugee-welcoming town needs (go to the story, here, to see why):

Good public transportation

A culture of volunteerism

A mosque in town

A population that leans Democrat

A church-going tradition [these would be church-goers on the religious left—ed]

An entrepreneurial ecosystem

She quotes David Lubell of Welcoming America by way of explanation:
“If you take the example of Clarkston, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta, which has had a huge growth in its refugee population over the past 15 years, entrepreneurs come and create halal supermarkets.” [Oh yippee, where is PETA?—ed]

Chilly weather

A smaller population

You can read it all by clicking here.

She has forgotten two of the most important elements and those are whether the state  has a generous welfare system and has expanded Medicaid.

And, not to mention the most important element and that is whether there is a hardcore political activist group (or even just one or two people), or a Left-leaning Interfaith group, with a mission to change America by changing its people.

Update: How could I forget—if you have a meat packing plant nearby you go to the top of the list!

We know some of the newly targeted towns and they include:  Missoula, MT, Charleston, WV, Ithaca, NY, Rutland, VT, Northhampton, MA, Fayetteville, AR.  I know I’m missing dozens, so help me identify them all.

Obama Administration thumbs nose at Senate Judiciary Committee, refuses to testify tomorrow

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 20, 2016

Senator Jeff Sessions had scheduled a legally required Senate hearing for tomorrow on the President’s ‘Determination’ about refugee numbers for Fiscal Year 2017 (begins in 11 days).

jeff-sessions-827png

Here you can tell by the usually mild Senator Sessions tone that a refusal to appear, by all branches of the administration that deal with refugees, is of major concern for the nation and a clear slap in the face to all American citizens with fears for the security and economic well-being of their communities.

This is stunning! United Nations First! (Not America First!).

Sessions: Obama Administration Subordinates Concerns Of The American People To Advance Agenda Of The United Nations

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and The National Interest made the following statement regarding the Obama Administration’s refusal to attend a hearing tomorrow about the Refugee Admissions Program:

 

“Despite having sufficient notice of a statutorily required hearing regarding its plans for the Refugee Admissions Program in Fiscal Year 2017, the Obama Administration has once again elected to subordinate both its relationship with Congress and the legitimate concerns of the American people to advance the agenda of the United Nations. The Department of State claims that not one official is available to appear at tomorrow’s scheduled hearing due to this week’s United Nations General Assembly and Summit for Refugees and Migrants. The Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services have also refused to attend tomorrow’s hearing in a strange display of bureaucratic solidarity with the Department of State’s indefensible decision. The American people deserve explanations about the Administration’s reckless plans to admit 110,000 refugees beginning on October 1, 2016. They demand that their leaders end the lawlessness and abuses in the Refugee Admissions Program, and that their leaders place the safety and security of this country first.”

Stay tuned, we will keep you posted if the lawless Administration ever deigns to follow the law regarding the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program!  The hoopla in the UN over refugees was yesterday and today, so is the Judiciary hearing interrupting the the bureaucrats NYC party time?

Subpoena them!!!

California World Relief refugee contractor lets cat out of bag: next year 20,000-30,000 Syrians will arrive

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 20, 2016

And, no doubt they will be at least 95% Syrian Sunni Muslims.

kirt-lewis

Kirt Lewis: Yippee! Sacramento could get 2,000-3,000 Syrian Muslims! Photo: http://worldreliefsacramento.org/staff?title=&field_deparment_value=All&field_position_tid=All&page=1

When the Obama Administration went to Congress last week with its official “determination” for FY2017 which begins in 11 days (on October 1) and said that they want 110,000 refugees from all over the world admitted in FY17, they very pointedly made no mention of how many Syrians would be in that huge flow.

But, here, at the end of a story about the cost of educating refugees in California, a World Relief spokesman tells us what they all know on the inside (but are keeping secret from you!). (Hat tip: Joanne)

Early indicators suggest the U.S. is going to see more Syrian refugees next year–probably between 20,000 and 30,000,” Kirt Lewis, director of the Sacramento field office for World Relief, said in an interview. “As a rule of thumb, about 10 percent of those will end up settling in Northern California, and especially in Sacramento.”

To heck with Obama, it is the Republican Congress that will be responsible if this happens because they control the purse strings.  Contractors like World Relief have virtually NO MONEY unless they have yours—your taxpayer dollars!

Call your member of Congress today!  See here.  But call yours even if he/she is not on the Freedom Caucus.

ACLU files motion to immediately allow admittance of all refugees 17-21 to Lancaster high school

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 17, 2016

To taxpayers and parents in ‘welcoming’ communities nationwide, are your ready for expensive legal wrangling in your school system as your town’s refugee population grows? You better be!

Lancaster, PA has been a “welcoming” community for refugees from all over the world for years, and now they are receiving them at a rate of 700 a year.  In that group are teenage refugees who do not speak English and may have not had any, or very little, formal schooling.  Those teenagers/adults 17-21 had been placed in an alternative school until recently.

molly-tack-hooper

ACLU staff attorney Molly Tack-Hooper says refugees have rights to a quality education (even if it diminishes the rights of American kids). She didn’t say that last part but this is more of the same—refugees first! not Americans!

I told you about the earlier trial here which ended in a judge ordering those who brought the case admitted to McCaskey High School.

However, now here comes the ACLU demanding that the School District of Lancaster admit 90 students to the traditional high school immediately.

From Pennlive.com:

The ACLU of Pennsylvania has filed an emergency motion against the School District of Lancaster (SDOL) that seeks to force the district to enroll all refugee students ages 17 to 21 in traditional high school rather than an alternative school.

If the ACLU’s motion is granted, the School District of Lancaster would have to admit more than 90 refugees into the district from privately-run Phoenix Academy. In a news release, the ACLU pointed to the Aug. 26 ruling ordering the school to admit the original six students who filed suit against the district into McCaskey High School, adding that the ruling from District Judge Edward Smith encouraged the district to apply the court’s ruling to all refugee students of similar circumstances.

Noting email exchanges involving a local refugee resettlement agency*** [on the side of the ACLU–ed] and district officials illustrating a lack of desire for widespread change, the ACLU also said the district’s actions show it has no intention of honoring the court’s legal reasoning. Without intervention from the law, the the students continue to suffer irreparable harm from the enrollment delays and exclusion from the high school, the ACLU contends.

The emergency motion comes two days after the SDOL filed its own motion for a stay on the August ruling as well as a motion to expedite the appeal it formally filed Sept 2. The district enrolled the six students who sued and won but have not admitted any other refugee students, citing overcrowding and logistical issues, according to reports and its motions.

Where is the ‘pocket of resistance’ in Lancaster, or is it too late for Lancaster?

We have written a lot about Lancaster, click here, for our archive.

***The primary federal resettlement contractor in Lancaster is Church World Service. Does CWS operate in your town, see here.

Lesson from Missoula, Montana: They will lie to you!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 16, 2016

It couldn’t be a clearer demonstration of what I’ve been saying for years.

Pay attention prospective ‘welcoming’ communities!

Once a federal contractor gets an office established, your town will have NO CONTROL over how many will come and where they will come from.

mary-poole

Activist Mary Poole got the ball rolling and invited the International Rescue Committee to set up an office in Missoula. The rumor is that Mary is taking one, maybe two, families to live at her house to save taxpayers having to care for them (joking of course!)

And, LOL!, for all of you getting a run-around from your contractor office about the Abstract (what abstract? we don’t know what you are talking about?), well now we learn they sure did know what you were asking, but they wanted to make you feel dumb and uninformed.  The arrogance of these federal contractors is stunning!

Here is the latest from Missoula where the commissioners said they would “welcome” one hundred, well, oopsy now they will get 150—including Syrian and Iraqi Muslims among many ethnic groups.

(When your community gets a smattering of everything, it may sound cool to get all the “international flavor,” but be ready for a lot of extra taxpayer-funded costs in the local school system to accommodate myriad languages and levels of learning .)

Before you continue reading, be sure to see this post where we reported that the first Congolese families arriving in Missoula were homeless.

From The Missoulian:

Four families of Congolese have arrived in Missoula in the past month, but resettlement here will soon take on a more international flavor.

[…..]

Carr, executive director of the Missoula International Rescue Committee (IRC) office, said some of the millions who have fled civil war in Syria will land in Missoula after going through an international screening process and orientation.

“There will maybe be Iraqi refugees who will come. There may be refugees who come from Central African Republic, Chad, Sudan, Burma, Bhutan, Latin America,” she told about 30 people Tuesday night at a meeting of the Missoula County Democratic Central Committee in City Council chambers.

Obama is keeping the number of Syrians in the 2017 flow a secret!

jon-engen-2013

Mayor John Engen: So how many refugees will he take to live at his house?

While a target for Syrian resettlements in fiscal year 2017 hasn’t been announced, Obama’s refugee plan is expected to welcome even more.

That’s been a topic of debate among presidential candidates and in Montana, where Missoula opened the lone resettlement office in the state just two months ago.

Carr said the abstract proposal for Missoula now calls for 150 refugees in the next year. That’s up from “approximately 100 per year” that Missoula County Commissioners said they would welcome in a January letter to Anne Richard, assistant secretary of the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugee and Migration.

The bureau cited the support of the commissioners, Mayor John Engen and most of the Missoula City Council in agreeing to reopen an IRC resettlement office in Missoula. Soft Landing Missoula, which formed a year ago in response to the refugee crisis in Syria, has marshaled local support and continues to provide resources and manpower as the Congolese arrive.

Continue reading here.

Montanans there are 3 things to remember:

~The new year begins in 2 weeks (not in January), so Syrians could be there in October!

~They can distribute them within a hundred miles of Missoula especially if they are looking for cheap housing!

~The REPUBLICAN Congress could stop the whole thing from happening before October 1 by defunding the program in the Continuing Resolution (if they wanted to!).

Breaking news! White House kicking off Welcoming Refugee Week today

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 15, 2016

madeleine_albright_

Talk to Madeleine today! Won’t that be fun!

As I have been saying, the refugee industry has a masterful media propaganda campaign backing Obama’s last big push to change America by changing its people.

In less than 30 minutes the White House launches its part of the highly orchestrated Refugee Extravaganza leading up to Obama’s United Nations shindig this coming Tuesday.

Get in on the action!

If you tweet, use #RefugeesWelcome and #WelcomingWeek

Tell them what you think!

From the White House Press Office (hat tip: James):

This week kicks off National Welcoming Week, during which communities honor the contributions of immigrants and refugees and highlight efforts to build stronger, more prosperous communities that seek to welcome everyone.

Today, the White House is hosting Welcoming Refugees: Honoring Refugee Integration and Refugee Voices. This special event will convene faith-based groups, refugee resettlement organizations, local governments, refugee leaders, and others to lift up innovative refugee integration initiatives and celebrate the outstanding contributions of refugees across the country.

I’ll be there with White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. You can follow along at whitehouse.gov/live from 2:30p.m. to 5:30p.m. EST and share your thoughts on social media using the hashtags #RefugeesWelcome and #WelcomingWeek.

Our county has a rich tradition of welcoming refugees. Over the past 40 years, our nation has resettled over 3.2 million refugees from countries that span the globe.

President Obama believes that we are stronger as a nation when we welcome immigrants and refugees into our communities and harness their skills.

This year, we are proud to announce that we have met our goal of welcoming 10,000 Syrian refugees a month ahead of schedule, and we are well on our way to welcoming 85,000 refugees to our shores in 2016. And in 2017, we will seek to resettle 110,000 refugees, increasing the number of people we receive by almost 60 percent over a two-year period.

Thanks for being part of this vital conversation and for acting to make #RefugeesWelcome.

Sincerely,

Cecilia

Big businesses hire refugees, partner with Obama to replace American workers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 15, 2016

Huge companies, many of them multinational corporations, are, according to the International Rescue Committee (America’s wealthiest refugee contracting agency), scooping up refugee workers and training them apparently rather than spending the money to train needy African American or other American citizens.

 

irc-poster

IRC’s propaganda poster. You have got to hand it to them they are masters at marketing and propaganda.

 

The International Rescue Committee tells us that ‘do-gooderism’ is secondary to making smart business decisions that they say are driving these companies. (Ha! I bet the IRC’s volunteers think this is all about humanitarian zeal!)

Americans first!

Wouldn’t it be smart to train and hire needy American citizens first especially in cities hard hit by unemployment that leads to hopelessness and crime? Apparently not!

So if it’s simply good business:

Are refugee laborers willing to work more cheaply?

Are refugee laborers subsidized by government programs and therefore tax credits fall to companies who hire them?

Are refugee laborers trapped (they can’t easily go home) or quit the job?

Are refugee laborers more compliant and less willing to complain about working conditions?

Are refugee laborers pawns who are really here to change the demographic make-up of America (apparently supported by the companies Obama has lined up below)?

jennifer-paterson

Marketing expert, Jennifer Patterson is Obama’s program director for his corporate partnership for refugees. http://www.partnershipforrefugees.org/our-team/

We have previously reported on Chobani Yogurt and Chiptotle, both glowingly described by the International Rescue Committee (remember they gave George Soros their Freedom award recently) which directs us to Obama’s Partnership for Refugees sure to be on full display at the United Nations next week (at Obama’s shindig on the 20th).

Here is what the IRC says about Hamdi Ulukaya at Chobani (a leader of the Hijra!):

“Other companies have worked on the problem more deliberately. At Chobani—whose Kurdish CEO, Hamdi Ulukaya, has committed the majority of his personal wealth to ending the refugee crisis—the company started hiring refugees soon after it started to grow. Resettled refugees now make up 30% of the company’s employees. This, however, isn’t without political challenges: Chobani has faced criticism and calls for boycotts from conservatives who argue that the company is taking jobs from American-born workers.”

Another company the IRC gives a glowing report about is Starwood Hotels (they need maids and janitors) and according to wikipedia the massive chain may be bought out by Marriott.  The Marriotts are long time big supporters of amnesty and more refugee resettlement.

Your communities are being changed forever so that giant corporations can have cheap compliant labor!

In addition to those mentioned above, here (below) are the companies you can expect to see showcased at the UN next week with Obama, Samantha Power and of course Hillary lurking in the background.

(For those of you doing research in your towns and cities, find out which corporations are giving money to your elected officials in Washington and then you will know why your Senators and Members of Congress are reluctant to reform, or cut the funding for the Refugee Admissions Program, while feigning concern for the poor of the world.)

Can’t get a message to Speaker Paul Ryan on refugees? Try this!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 10, 2016

Yesterday my good friend Louise called to say she received a fundraising letter from Speaker Paul Ryan and asked did I get the same thing?  Well, sure enough, checked my junk mail and there it was!

paul-ryan-mailer

Team Ryan—give me a break!

How about helping make him a fundraising failure while sending a message to DEFUND REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT!

Here is what I am going to do (to this one and any others I get from the GOP), I’m sending them back with no money, but with a message to keep America safe by defunding the US Refugee Admissions Program, right now! This year!

(no matter what they say, they can’t vet the refugees!)

By all means, send donations directly to your favorite Republican candidates and directly to the Trump campaign!

Ryan’s “Team Ryan” appeal for money to elect House members comes with a letter, and you know what! I didn’t see the ‘T’ word anywhere in it—Trump is not mentioned!

However, and this is soooo funny, he says:

“House Republicans will be offering a better way forward going into this election.  An agenda rooted on our core conservative principles where we:

Operate the federal government with a balanced budget, just as you do at home

Repeal and replace Obamacare, which has proven to be an utter failure

Free small businesses to operate without interference from burdensome government regulations”

How dumb does he think we are? 

I told you here yesterday that the Republicans who control Congress (the House and the Senate) and the purse strings are part of the problem. They don’t defund anything!

ryan-envelope

Put a message on the outside of the envelope too!

What the hell have they been doing for the last year that we once again are facing a battle over a ‘Continuing Resolution’ to keep the government funded just at the time they want to run home and campaign so they can get back to Washington and do the same damn thing to us!

So, if you are as angry at them as I am, and you want to have fun, here is an idea!

Every appeal you get from the Republican establishment should go back in their own envelope (you can afford a stamp!) with a message written on it to Keep America Safe by defunding the US Refugee Admissions Program!

Check your junk mail! Surely you have gotten something from the GOP establishment recently, don’t trash it, put it to good use! (I’m going back to my junk mail basket right now to see what else I might find!).
