Clinton: Let’s rebuild Detroit with Syrian refugees!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 30, 2016

Consider this Part II of my previous post because here we learn that Hamdi Ulukaya (Chobani Yogurt empire) was busy earlier this year talking with Bill Clinton at the Clinton Global Initiative about the joys of hiring (Muslims in the case of the Syrians) over American workers.

This idea of rebuilding Detroit with thousands of Syrians isn’t new, remember the Republican governor of Michigan was spouting that same idea here in May of last year.  The Clinton Global Initiative video is from February of this year, so I wonder if Clinton stole the cockamamie idea from Snyder? (I guess I will have to watch the thing!).

 

 

Here is what Julia Hahn says at Breitbart:

In a previously little-noticed video from February at the Clinton Global Initiative, former President Bill Clinton suggested that the U.S. use Syrian refugees to rebuild Detroit.

“The truth is that the big loser in this over the long run is going to be Syria. This is an enormous opportunity for Americans,” Bill Clinton said about the Syrian migrant crisis.

It is unclear from the video why Clinton seems to think it would be better to fill these Detroit jobs with imported foreign migrants rather than unemployed Americans already living there, who could perhaps benefit from good-paying jobs.

In the video, Clinton discusses the migrant crisis with billionaire and mass migration enthusiast Hamdi Ulukaya of the Chobani yogurt empire.

Ulukaya has become a figure of controversy for his decision to fill his yogurt plants with foreign refugees rather than unemployed Americans. At the World Economic Forum in Davos earlier this year, Ulukaya encouraged other global elites to follow his lead.

The unearthed video seems to underscore Donald Trump’s recent declaration that, “Hillary Clinton would rather provide a job to a refugee from overseas than to give that job to unemployed African-American youth in cities like Detroit who have become refugees in their own country.”

Continue reading to hear more about Bill, Hillary, Ulukaya, Twin Falls, Idaho and crony capitalism by clicking here. (Don’t you ever wonder if the Syrians know they are being used as pawns?)

BTW, expect to see more of Mr. Chobani (with other corporate big wigs) and the Clintons at Obama’s big UN refugee shindig on September 20th!

DCRally4Refugees falls short of expectations

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 28, 2016

Update August 30th: Breitbart has more of my comments on the rally here.

I’m glad I dragged myself to Washington on a steaming Sunday morning because if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes I wouldn’t have believed that the big hoopla that led up to the so-called Rally4Refugees would fall so short of expectations.

Someone spent an awful lot of money for jumbotrons, tents, a big sound system, bottled water, porta pots, and African American clean-up crews (for a mostly white crowd) for what generously might be called a thousand people (at one point or another during the event).  I’m terrible at estimating crowds, so it might have been 500 at the peak of the rally before noon.

Most attendees did not wear the recommended orange shirts so some of those watching the poets, singers and marching troops in orange life vests could have been tourists who took a few minutes from their visit to the Washington Monument to see what was going on.

My report was phoned in to Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily and his write-up is here. ‘Puny’ it was!

For your viewing pleasure, here are more photos of the day (in addition to those posted at WND). I’ll be so interested to see how any other media reports on it.  I saw lots of fancy schmancy cameras, but I didn’t see any cable news or reporters of any note.

 

code pink was there

Of course Code Pink was there! They wouldn’t miss an event like this!

 

counter protesters

An always important reminder that Saudi Arabia doesn’t take in its fellow Muslim refugees!

 

Park police, move

Move on out fellows, your free speech is offending these folks!

This kind of truth is pretty painful for sensitive eyes.

We have big jumbotrons all the better for the mass of rally goers to see us with.

This is about two hours in and the crowds are thinning.

Big daddy paid for some expensive rally gear including tents like this one.

White girls love this social justice stuff!

A favorite theme of the day’s festivities. At one point they flashed this sign on the jumbotron.

Another offender who was moved away from the sensitive youngsters.

My all time favorite for the day—the life vest troops who spent a lot of time posing for this photographer, marching to and fro.

It is all about the money! Will Congressional Republicans save us, or not? (More money Part II)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 28, 2016

Update: Rally fizzles, pathetic turnout!  Click here for photos.

The Rally4Refugees  (aka Rally4Money) kicks off today in Washington and although organizers want to give the impression that this is all about saving the downtrodden of the world, they know and are working toward the goal of wringing more of your money, taxpayer dollars, out of you to expand their progressive power base, force diversity down everyone’s throats, and help bring a steady supply of cheap labor for their partners in the global economy.

[See my Part I, here, also about the money]

We can impotently holler and scream about the UN, about Obama, about Soros and Hillary, but we should be screaming at the Republicans in Congress and especially the leadership.

Obama cannot expand the numbers of refugees he wants for FY2017 without the accompanying money from you!

A week or so ago we told you that Obama is looking to get $2.2 BILLION appropriated for FY2017 for the Office of Refugee Resettlement alone.  The fiscal year begins October 1!

Congress and the power of the purse!

Mitch_McConnell_Paul_Ryan_eR_151231_12x5_1600

We can scream and shout about the UN, Obama, Soros, and Hillary, but whether your town is spared becoming a new or expanded resettlement site depends on these two! Senator Mitch McConnell and Speaker Paul Ryan.

When Congress returns after Labor Day, will Congress pass a ‘continuing budget resolution’ until a later date (past the November election)?

Will they address next year’s budget in the lame duck session following the election and after we know who will be our President in 2017?

Might they pass a continuing resolution until say March (giving a new President time to have some influence)? Or, they could pass a whole year’s budget in the lame duck.

We don’t know, but you can be sure that during those September days (before they leave to campaign in October) funding issues will be front and center for them.

The point I’m making is that your energy must now be placed on stopping the funding for refugee resettlement (or at minimum keeping it at last year’s level) when the contractors and those organizing that rally today will be putting all their time and energy (most likely using your money to lobby as well!) into expanding the funding levels to accommodate whatever crazy number Obama will announce at the UN in September. Go here and look at their postcard to Congress—it is about MONEY!

The nine federal resettlement contractors*** have no money if they can’t get it from you!

Again, Obama says he wants $2.2 Billion for ORR (in the Dept. of Health and Human Services) while the House Appropriations Committee has already weighed in and said, no. They propose keeping the funding at last year’s level.

See what they said here in the Appropriations Committee report earlier this summer (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum).  The Committee recommends $1.6 billion.  The contracting agencies will have a much more difficult time trying to open all the new offices they have been talking about with money at last year’s level.

Editor: Remember as you read this that this is just for the Office of Refugee Resettlement and know that the State Department also pays out at least another $500 million directly to the contractors. Also, be sure to take note of the fact that the ‘Unaccompanied Alien Children’ are now costing us almost one billion alone!

REFUGEE AND ENTRANT ASSISTANCE

    The Committee recommends $1,674,691,000 for Refugee and 
Entrant Assistance programs, which is the same as the fiscal 
year 2016 enacted level and $575,169,000 below the fiscal year 
2017 budget request.
    The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) programs are 
designed to help refugees, asylees, Cuban and Haitian entrants, 
and trafficking victims become employed and self-sufficient. 
These programs also provide for care of unaccompanied immigrant 
children in Federal custody and victims of torture.
    Within the total, the Committee recommends the following:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                            FY 2017
                   Budget Activity                         Committee
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Transitional and Medical Services....................       $490,000,000
Victims of Trafficking...............................         18,755,000
Social Services......................................        155,000,000
Preventive Health....................................          4,600,000
Targeted Assistance..................................         47,601,000
Unaccompanied Children...............................        948,000,000
Victims of Torture...................................         10,735,000
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Refugees and Unaccompanied Children

    Healthcare and Education Costs Related to Illegal 
Immigration.--The Committee is concerned with the significant 
healthcare and education costs to State and local communities 
resulting from illegal immigration. In addition, the Committee 
is concerned about the response time from previous inquiries on 
this matter; the Committee urges the Departments of Education 
and Health and Human Services to provide timely and informative 
assistance when requested. The Committee further directs the 
Departments of Education and Health and Human Services to 
provide all available Federal resources to assist State and 
local governments with these increased costs that are a direct 
result of Federal law or policy. The Committee further directs 
the Departments to provide a report to the House Appropriations 
Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and 
Education, the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and 
the Subcommittee on Homeland Security within 90 days of 
enactment on the costs borne by State and local governments and 
the Federal government for providing health and education 
services to individuals without legal immigration status. The 
report should cover the costs incurred over the course of 
fiscal years 2014-2016 and include projected costs for fiscal 
years 2017 through 2021. The report shall also include an 
accounting of what Federal resources have been directed and 
what Federal resources will be directed in each year to cover 
these added expenses.

Note above in blue—that is the Committee telling HHS something they want done! Such demands can be placed in Appropriations bills.  This is a good step, but it would be even better if it directed them to find out what the state and local costs are of refugees placed in your towns as well.

Republican members of the subcommittee responsible for the above are listed here.  Is yours among them? If so, thank them. Tell them this is a start!

Look for Part III this coming week.  So what is the US State Department asking for in FY2017?

Rutland controversy exposes important information about abstracts and the plans for your town

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 27, 2016

It is with the deepest gratitude to the citizen activists in Rutland, VT that we are bringing you a broader understanding of the process by which your town is ‘chosen’ to become a new ‘welcoming’ resettlement site.

Many of you have gotten your R & P Abstracts for FY2017 and we dissected one here last week. After having seen one for Reno that is 16 pages long and knowing most of you were getting 3-pagers, I figured they were keeping more information secret from you.

lavinia-limon

Lavinia Limon is the Director of the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, a non-profit group over 95% funded by you which wants to determine the future of Rutland. Learn more about her here at Breitbart: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/08/02/revolving-door-sends-millions-refugee-resettlement-agency-run-former-clinton-obama-appointees/

But, I did not know that they are keeping documents that are over a hundred pages from you—a document that serves as the supporting rationale that the US State Department is using to decide if your town is worthy.  Holy cow!

Think about this!  If you live in Missoula, MT, Charleston, WV, Ithaca, NY, Aberdeen, SD or any one of a number of new sites, there is a massive document prepared SECRETLY about your town!  So, when they throw a 3-page document at you, they are throwing you only a bone to shut you up!

These documents are prepared with your tax dollars and they propose the spending of millions (billions!) of tax dollars  and you aren’t allowed to see them!

From VTDigger:

RUTLAND — Some residents and elected officials in Rutland County say they’re frustrated they’ve been unable to obtain the full 126-page application for local refugee resettlement that the U.S. State Department is weighing.

Rutland County Sens. Kevin Mullin, Peg Flory and Brian Collamore will participate in a meeting Monday at the Rutland Free Library to discuss issues related to refugee resettlement, including the application.

The group hosting the meeting, Rutland First, has challenged the plan to bring refugees to Rutland and the process by which the decision was made. In a news release announcing Monday’s event, it said residents and members of the Board of Aldermen have made Freedom of Information Act requests for a copy of the application from the State Department and other agencies involved but have been rebuffed.

[….]

Mullin said he’s not opposed to refugee resettlement and doesn’t want Rutland to be perceived as unwelcoming but thinks the application should be a public document.

“It’s hard for us to get answers too,” he said. “That’s what’s frustrating.”

The application is written and submitted by the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, a nongovernmental organization. The committee’s Vermont affiliate is the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program.

The committee has made public a three-page section of the application known as the abstract, which provides some information on housing, employment and other resources specific to Rutland.

There is much more and every one of  you working on digging out information in your states must read this!

Bidding for bodies!

Remember I told you that the nine federal contractors*** are bidding for bodies (they are paid by the head to resettle refugees), well that is what USCRI is basically admitting.  The contractors say they don’t want to let out their trade secrets and new locations to the other federal contractors.  This is outrageous!  So who gets s******?  You, the taxpaying citizen.

This is a federal program, no matter how awful your US Senators and your Congressman are, complain to them that this secrecy must stop! Tell them you want all  funding stopped until Congress reviews this entire program!

Read this and stiffen your spine! Laugh at them when they call you racist

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 27, 2016

Or, if it’s your style, react as the Governor of Maine did in his profanity-laced tirade against a Democrat law maker.

When you think about it, all they have is to call you a racist (or fancier versions of the same word—a xenophobe, a nativist, an islamophobe) when you raise concerns about the costs of refugee resettlement, security concerns, and the impact on social cohesion brought by forced multiculturalism to your communities.  And, the progressive left has been getting away with defeating us for decades by rolling out that charge.

I say, call me whatever you want, then laugh at them and move on!

Once you defeat the power of that word by not caring that it is used against you, you win.

Watch this hilarious clip of Hillary’s attack on all of us “racists” and the so-called ‘Alt Right’ earlier this week (and spread it far and wide)!

 

Now see what Maine Governor LePage said in the same week that Donald Trump turned the tables on Clinton and called her a “bigot.”

From Leo Hohmann at WND:

Maine Gov. Paul LePage went ballistic Thursday after several Democratic politicians labeled him a “racist” over comments he made about the demographic makeup of drug trafficking suspects in his state.

Drew Gattine

Rep. Drew Gattine a “socialist (expletive)” according to Gov. LePage.

LePage went on a profanity-laced tirade in a voicemail message in which he challenged Democrat state legislator Drew Gattine to prove he was a racist, the Portland Press Herald reported.

“Mr. Gattine, this is Gov. Paul Richard LePage,” a recording of the governor’s phone message says. “I would like to talk to you about your comments about my being a racist, you (expletive). I want to talk to you. I want you to prove that I’m a racist. I’ve spent my life helping black people and you little son-of-a-bitch, socialist (expletive). You … I need you to, just friggin. I want you to record this and make it public because I am after you. Thank you.”

LePage later confided in reporters he’d like to settle the score with the “snot-nosed little guy” Gattine in an armed duel.

Charges of racism and bigotry from the Democrat Party are nothing new, of course.

But what is new is the reaction by Republicans.

And it’s being led by the Trump phenomenon.

The refugee contractors want more refugees and more MONEY for FY2017 (Part I)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 26, 2016

They have their eyes on the ball well before the DC Rally for Refugees kicks off on Sunday in Washington. In fact they are in the final stretch of Obama’s plan to change America by changing the people.

Obama and Paul Ryan

The ultimate question: Will Speaker Paul Ryan help Barack Obama resettle 100,000 (or more!) refugees to your towns starting October first?

Their campaign is a many months’ long effort that seeks to dramatically increase the money they want from you to bring in an even larger contingent of third worlders mostly from the Middle East, Africa and Asia beginning in October.

If you are in a community that has agreed to ‘welcome’ refugees for the first time, or one that is fighting hard not to be a new resettlement site, it is because the contractors and their friends in the Open Borders Left are pushing for 100,000 or more refugees to be seeded throughout America and they need new sites (existing ones are overloaded).

They are never ever satisfied with the numbers or the amount of money they receive.

I’m repeating myself I know, but I want everyone (including new readers who arrive here today) to understand that the way to save your town right now is to STOP THE FUNDING for FY2017 and there is only one place to do that—Congress!

2016_annual_calendar

There is little time left in the Congressional calendar as they all scurry home in October to campaign.

I know it’s often boring and complicated, but you all must wrap your minds around the budget and appropriations process starting now!

The contractors know the process well (heck they are up on the Hill every year looking for more money!) and have their sites set on the Appropriations deliberations that will be in full swing as soon as Congress returns on September 6th!  That is when the battle for your money begins in earnest.

We want robust funds!

Here is what the Refugee Council USA (the lobbying arm of the refugee resettlement industry) is telling its people in RCUSA’s Activist Tool Kit (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum):

RCUSA:

Increased Funds Are Needed to Protect Refugees Internationally and Resettle Refugees in the U.S.

President Obama announced that the United States will resettle 85,000 refugees from around the world in Fiscal Year 2016 and plans to resettle 100,000 refugees in Fiscal Year 2017. While an improvement from the 70,000 refugees resettled in Fiscal Year 2015, it is critical that even this relatively small increase in refugee admissions is accompanied by both increased international assistance and robust funds to ensure local communities in the U.S. have the resources they need to help refugees rebuild their lives. [What a joke, $ for local communities or money for their own salaries and offices?—ed] The Office of Refugee Resettlement has been chronically underfunded for years, and an infusion of resources is needed to meet both the increase in refugee admissions and the need for all refugees to have the opportunity to succeed in their new communities.

Window of Opportunity: Now until September 2016

From now until September, Congress is considering two sets of funding bills for Fiscal Year 2017 (FY17 which covers October 1, 2016 – September 30, 2017): a short term “continuing resolution” that will fund the government at Fiscal Year 2016 levels for a few months into FY17, and a new set of bills that would flat line funding for refugee assistance overseas and refugee resettlement in the United States for the rest of FY17. Under both sets of bills, the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) and the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) would remain at FY16 levels, despite the fact that the FY16 budget was calculated to resettle 75,000 refugees and in FY17 we anticipate serving 100,000 refugees. We seek increases for these accounts in both the short-term continuing resolution and the FY17 appropriations bills. Now is a perfect time to share information about the refugee crisis and let your Senators and Representatives know that you care about displaced people overseas and refugees resettled in the United States.

As we prepare for 100,000 refugees to be resettled in the United States in FY 2017, it is critical that refugee related accounts are increased in order to assist and resettle refugees. It is time to act with historic leadership and compassion and stand with those seeking safety and the opportunity to build a new life.

Anti-Refugee Sentiment

Utilizing anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric, individuals who oppose refugee resettlement are making their voices heard the loudest and most frequently to policy makers. Groups like Refugee Resettlement Watch*** are calling for an end to resettlement altogether, and are fostering hostile atmospheres for newcomers. Some governors have opposed resettlement to their states and various state legislatures have proposed legislation that would enact harmful policies. It is critical that policy makers learn about the importance of resettlement from refugees themselves and supportive community members. We want policy makers to support positive legislation and oppose proposals that would turn our backs on refugees and violate our values of welcome and hospitality.

***One of the funniest things I ever read was when Daniel Greenfield was labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and he said he looked around for his group and all he saw was his cat!

Be sure to see Part II tomorrow! Hint! Paul Ryan is target #1 but there are others too!

Here (below) are the members of the Refugee Council USA (federal resettlement contractors being paid by the head to place refugees in your towns are in red, they have a vested financial interest in bringing in ever larger numbers of refugees):

More on Sunday rally in DC: goal is to increase refugee numbers for FY2017

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 26, 2016

And, here Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies reminds us of the huge cost of resettling each refugee to your town or city.  It is far less expensive to find safe places in the Middle East for the Syrians, says Krikorian.

Safe zones!

In fact, Donald  Trump has remarked in the past that he would like to see “safe zones” established where refugees could be protected until the conflict is over in Syria.  I’m thinking one such safe zone could be in Saudi Arabia!

Maybe Trump could make a deal with the Saudis who at present do not take care of their fellow Muslim refugees (a fact that we have chronicled over the years) to establish a safe zone in the kingdom.

From the Daily Signal about Sunday’s Rally for Refugees (see our earlier post here).  Emphasis below is mine:

Are you concerned about the plight of international refugees? Would you like to see the U.S. government take decisive, constructive action on behalf of displaced persons across the globe who have been forced to flee their homes?

Mark-Krikorian

Krikorian points out that there are much more fiscally responsible ways to care for Syrian refugees than to scatter them through hundreds of American towns.

If so, you’re invited to “stand up against the voices of intolerance” this Sunday in Washington, D.C., where you can join forces with other concerned Americans.  [If you are concerned about the costs and social upheaval for both refugees and for Americans when refugees are secretly placed in your towns, you are intolerant! Get used to it!—ed]

But if you do participate, policy analysts who have examined the refugee crisis want you to know they have good reason to believe the rally is a highly politicized event organized for the purpose of lobbying the Obama administration and Congress to allow more refugees into the U.S.—including those from war-torn Syria and Iraq who may have ties to terrorism.

A major contributor to causes on the left, the Tides Foundation, is collecting contributions for the rally.

[….]

High Costs of Resettling Refugees

A report by the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies found that it costs 12 times as much to resettle a refugee in America than it does to provide for services and relief to the same refugee in the Middle East.

The nonprofit, nonpartisan research outfit included State Department expenditures, welfare use rates, and other figures and benefits from the departments of Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, and other U.S. agencies. Its report says:

Based on that information, this analysis finds that the costs of resettling refugees in the United States are quite high, even without considering all of the costs refugees create. We conservatively estimate that the costs total $64,370 in the first five years for each Middle Eastern refugee. This is 61 times what it costs to care for one Syrian refugee in a neighboring country for a single year or about 12 times the cost of providing for a refugee for five years.

“The organizers, funders, and the supporting groups are putting this rally together to exert pressure to ensure that the Obama administration increases the admission of Syrians into the U.S.,” Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, told The Daily Signal.

[….]

Krikorian, of the Center for Immigration Studies, said he sees more than mere happenstance at work in the timing of the rally: Obama is set to play host to a refugee summit at the U.N. on Sept. 20. The president also is expected to release his fiscal year 2017 plan for refugees by the end of September.

The rally is not only “to exert pressure to ensure that the Obama administration increases the admission of Syrians,” Krikorian said, but “timed to influence the number of refugees the State Department is trying to settle.”

And, it is my view that it is also to exert pressure on Congress to loosen the purse strings on funding for the program as Congress addresses the budget this fall. The nine federal contractors*** who resettle refugees in your towns and cities want to expand their operations to even more towns and they need your money to do that!

We have talked about this before, but I’m going to be a broken record on it!  Your focus for the next couple of months should be on pressuring your Member of Congress to grow a spine and oppose the expenditure of your money on resettling ever larger numbers of refugees.

Don’t focus your anger at Obama and the Progressives, they are doing what they always do—focus on someone you can change—your member of Congress and US Senators up for re-election in a little over two months.

Georgia mosque plan: Commissioner asks will it bring refugees here?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2016

Yes, it most likely could, mosques are part of the hijra (the migration), however a resettlement contractor spokeswoman quickly said, NO.  She doesn’t believe refugees can be successful in this county.

Hmmm! Wonder where all the new Muslims (enough for a big new mosque and cemetery) are coming from then?

Here is the news from AP at Fox News (is Fox calling CAIR a civil rights group in its headline?):

ATLANTA – A proposal to build a mosque and Muslim cemetery has so angered some residents of Newton County outside Atlanta that their commissioners have temporarily banned all building permit approvals for religious institutions.

amy crownover

Crownover: Newton County need not fear it will become a refugee magnet. Refugees could not be successful there she said. Photo: http://www.pointsoflight.org/blog/2014/10/10/how-dose-reality-made-me-leader

The moratorium prompted the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the NAACP to request a federal civil rights investigation in Newton County. A spokesman for U.S. Attorney John Horn confirmed receipt of this complaint Tuesday, but declined comment.

Mohammad Islam, the religious leader behind the proposal, said he doesn’t intend to take any legal action; instead, he met Tuesday with local leaders of other faiths in Newton County, seeking their support for a fresh start.

[….]

One commissioner questioned whether the project would make Newton County “a prime area for the federal government to resettle refugees from the Middle East” in an interview with The Rockdale Citizen, a local newspaper. Two public meetings were held, both crowded with angry opponents who clapped and cheered when people expressed fears about global terrorism.

[….]

But places like Newton County need not fear becoming magnets for refugees, said Amy Crownover, spokeswoman for New American Pathways. The organization is one of five refugee resettlement organizations in Georgia that are contracted with the federal government to assist refugees arriving in the United States.

“We work in partnership with communities, looking for communities where refugees can be successful,” which requires easy access to public transportation, jobs, English classes and other services. Newton County “isn’t an ideal setting,” Crownover said.

I’m wondering if she is implying the folks there are unwelcoming? But, of course, we know that hasn’t stopped the contractors in other locales.

Georgia has been a real hot bed of controversy and is one of the original pockets of resistance to the Refugee Admissions Program, click here for our Georgia archive.

Trending? Connecticut resettlement contractor farming out refugee families

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2016

This may be happening already where you live, but this is the first time I’m seeing such a strategy.

A subcontractor of both Episcopal Migration Ministries and Church World Service (two of nine major contractors) in Connecticut is lining up towns to take refugee families, raise money for them and take over much of the responsibility for the family.

Blumenthal

Senator Blumenthal with the Connecticut Director of CAIR. We want Syrians resettled in CT!

I would really like to know if this is a new strategy for the federal contractors who are in fact doing a pretty lousy job of assimilating new refugees as the numbers keep rising beyond what they can handle. The article I’m posting (below) says there are 50 such arrangements in CT.

Connecticut politicians have made it very clear over the last year that the state is going to welcome as many Syrian Muslims as possible.  See this post from last fall where CT Senator Blumenthal announces that he wants to see a reduction in screening time for Syrians (he got his wish since the Obama Administration did indeed reduce the normal 18 months or more down to 3 months to get his 10,000 Syrian Sunnis here by the end of September).

Here is the news item that caught my eye this morning at the Hamlet Hub. Mark your calendars:

In response to the global refugee crisis, a group of area residents has applied to sponsor a refugee family in Ridgefield in partnership with Integrated Immigration and Refugee Services (IRIS), a non-profit agency that has been resettling refugees in Connecticut for over 30 years. This local group, the Refugee Resettlement Committee—Ridgefield (RRCR), will host an information session for the public at the Ridgefield Library on Thursday, September 15 at 10am.

According to IRIS, there are 19 million refugees in the world today, the largest number since World War II. The U.S. Government is inviting 85,000 of those refugees to become Americans in 2016; that number will increase to 100,000 in 2017. Eight hundred are arriving in Connecticut this year; 450 of them will be welcomed by IRIS and its more than 50 state-wide co-sponsors. These refugees will arrive legally, fully vetted, fully documented and with many skills, but most likely without English or money.

Ridgefield-1.8

IRIS is headquartered in New Haven, home of Yale University.

As an IRIS co-sponsor, the RRCR will help the family secure affordable housing, find jobs, access language training, and navigate the education, health and social services systems. The goal is that the family be relatively self-sufficient in six months. During that first six months, however, they will need help with transportation and living expenses, so the committee is recruiting volunteer drivers and trying to raise $15,000 for the family.

To learn more about the process and how to get involved, come to the information session or contact the committee at RRCRidgefield@gmail.com. To make a tax-deductible donation, go to the ‘online giving’ tab at http://www.ststephens-ridgefield.org, which is managing donations on behalf of the committee.

A cautionary tale….

Just about the time I started RRW, a church in my town privately sponsored an African family.  It became a nightmare for the church that finally ended when the family left for Minnesota to be with others of their African ethnic group.  Church members were ultimately left with a bitter taste in their mouths.  They first became weary of driving members of the family everywhere, and then were left with a mess in the donated home they permitted the refugees to use free of charge as the family packed up and left.  The appliances in the home had to be trashed and the place repainted.

I would like to know who will be responsible for rental property etc. (or if some crime occurs) in Ridgefield, IRIS or the local welcoming citizens? And, do the Ridgefield citizens get to pick their family—perhaps a quiet Buddhist or Christian family?

Note to Soros and Sutherland on DC rally this Sunday: the jig is up

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 23, 2016

Writer Willliam Jasper at The New American isn’t pulling any punches as he lays out the strategy and the actors for this Sunday’s Rally for Refugees in Washington, DC. (We told you about it here).

Breitbart London also confirmed the link between Sutherland and George Soros and the globalists plan to open borders world wide. http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/08/20/soros-leaks-un-chief-behind-scenes-advocate/

Here is Jasper yesterday (emphasis is mine):

The professional Soros migration/refugee agitators are rallying the street radicals to come to Washington, D.C., this Sunday, August 28. The aim of #DCRally4Refugees is to whip up the appearance of popular support for the UN’s September 19 Refugee Summit and President Obama’ plan to “surge” thousands more Syrian “refugees” into American communities.

The #DCRally4Refugees is being organized by dozens of radical-Left groups funded by billionaire hedge fund mogul George Soros (shown) and his Open Society Foundations. As we reported last week, hacked documents from the Open Society Foundations (OSF) database have confirmed what was long known to readers of The New American: that the plethora of “grassroots” NGOs lobbying for the United States to take in more refugees and more migrants is, in reality, a phony Astroturf setup of professional revolutionaries financed by corporate globalists.

Moreover, OSF’s secret e-mails, memos, and reports posted by the DCLeaks.com hacktivists also reveal the incestuous, behind-the-scenes coordination among the Soros-financed street revolutionaries and their high-level consorts in the Obama administration and the United Nations.

One of the key globalist Insiders in the planned massive refugee resettlement scheme is the UN Secretary General’s Special Representative on International Migration Peter Sutherland. As we have pointed out in previous reports, Sutherland, the former chairman of Goldman Sachs International and British Petroleum (BP), is a top-level member of the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, the Transatlantic Policy Network, and other world-government-promoting organizations, and is one of the key architects of the ongoing Muslim migration tsunami that is currently devastating Europe. Sutherland will also be one of the principal speakers at the UN Refugee Summit in September, according to the UN’s press office.

As part of its effort to project the appearance of popular support for more refugee resettlement, the #DCRally4Refugees is urging activists to sign online and postcard petitions to Congress stating their strong support for the refugee influx and their opposition to legislative efforts in Congress that would impede the planned migration deluge.

Continue reading here to follow links.  There is much more including a full list of the sponsors of Sunday’s planned propaganda stunt. Mysteriously absent is one usual player—-the US Conference of Catholic Bishops/Catholic Charities.  Boy would I like to know what that is all about!

Jasper’s list seems to have omitted Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service which was in the original list.  But, the USCCB is absent and thus 8 of 9 federal resettlement contractors will be backing the event which is ultimately aimed at bringing more money (your money!) into their coffers.

We previously reported on Sutherland’s role in changing Europe by changing the people, here.
