Simpson: Red-Green Axis working to erase America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 15, 2015

Here at American Thinker, investigative reporter James Simpson, tells us about his new book published by Center for Security Policy Press: The Red-Green Axis: Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to Erase America.’

This is essentially a follow-up (a much more detailed follow-up!) to my monograph ‘Refugee Resettlement and the Hijra to America.’  Mr. Simpson has gone much deeper into the finances and the hard Left connections that drive the resettlement of Third Worlders to your towns and cities.  If you are reading Ann Coulter’s: ‘Adios America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole this is a good companion read! As of this time, ‘Adios America’ is second on the New York Times Best Seller list for nonfiction.

By the way, red is the traditional color of Communism, while green is considered the traditional color of Islam (LOL! they claimed it before the enviros!).

Here is Simpson:

This week, the Center for Security Policy published my latest work, The Red-Green Axis: Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to Erase America. It reveals a malevolent component of our dysfunctional immigration system that has largely flown under the radar: refugee resettlement. This article highlights a few of its findings.

Hatched by the U.N. and the American Left, the resettlement agenda is dedicated to erasing our culture, traditions and laws, and creating a compliant, welfare-dependent multicultural society with no understanding of America’s constitutional framework and no interest in assimilation. The ultimate target is a voting base large enough for the Left’s long-sought “permanent progressive majority.”

Most people would be shocked to know that America currently takes more refugees from the world’s ghettos than all other refugee resettlement countries in the world combined. The State Department brags about it. Furthermore, most of those refugees are referred to the United States by the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The refugees (and the illegal aliens flooding the southern border from Central America) are then “resettled” by taxpayer funded “Voluntary Agencies” or VOLAGs as they are called.

There are nine of them, six nominally religious, but all are in it for the money and top staff make high six figures. Together the VOLAGs are paid close to $1 billion in taxpayer dollars to resettle refugees. Two more organizations who settle most of the unaccompanied alien children (UAC) brought the total to over $1.3 billion last year.

Keep reading!  There is much more!

In this article, Simpson introduces us to the investigation he did of the Soros-spawned “Welcoming America.”  See his book for the details.

Poll: Most Brits do not want to ‘welcome’ more refugees, especially Muslims

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 15, 2015

This information didn’t surprise me at all, but why I found it so worthy of posting is that once again we have the “charity” Islamic Relief involved.  They did the poll.

We told you about Islamic Relief USA plowing funds into the US refugee program just last week, here (please read it!).

Even if our ‘leaders’ don’t get it, the Islamists understand how significant the Hijra is to the advancement of Islam throughout the West!

Islamic Relief UK director Jehangir Malik (right): “….public attitudes towards Muslims are hugely negative and attitudes towards refugees have hardened significantly.” Photo: http://www.radicalmiddleway.org/event/rethinking-charity

From the UK Independent (emphasis is mine):

Almost half of British people think refugees – including those who have escaped the civil war in Syria – should be turned away from the UK, new research has revealed.

In what Islamic Relief said was a “dramatic hardening of views” against people displaced by war, a poll commissioned by the charity and compiled by YouGov showed that 42 per cent of Britons do not think foreign nationals seeking safety from conflict or persecution should be welcomed to UK shores. Last year, a similar survey found that 31 per cent of Britons believed the UK should not let refugees in.

When it comes to the Syrian crisis specifically, attitudes are even more steadfast – 47 per cent of the 6,000 people polled said the UK should not provide refuge. Only 29 per cent were in favour.

[….]

Islamic Relief believes part of the problem could be linked to an increasingly negative view of Muslim people.  [no kidding!—ed] As the religious holy month of Ramadan begins, the organisation wants to celebrate the role British Muslims play in society, and the donations they give to fund aid.

“The results of this poll are extremely worrying because they show that public attitudes towards Muslims are hugely negative and attitudes towards refugees have hardened significantly,” said Islamic Relief UK director Jehangir Malik.

[….]

The research sample found a crucial difference in public agreement to house refugees. While 34 per cent of people said they think refugees should be welcomed, just 29 per cent said the same when asked about those from Syria and the Middle East.

It also asked respondents what three words or phrases people associate with the term Muslim, and found perceptions portrayed a “worrying” trend. The top answer, at 12 per cent, was “terrorism”. Other words that ranked highly were “misogynist” and “extremist”.

There is more, continue reading here.

How about a poll right here in America?

US readers!  We will be getting thousands of Syrian refugees placed in your states if you don’t act now and tell Congress NO!  If you live in one of the states represented by the 14-member Jihad Caucus you must hound them too!

And, if you think the proposal to bring 65,000 Syrians to the US in the remaining months of the Obama Presidency is so crazy it would never happen, think again!

Justice Department Inspector General suggests possible misuse of grant money by Catholic Charities San Antonio

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 12, 2015

The Center for Immigration Studies reported this week on an audit conducted by the Dept. of Justice’s Office of Inspector General of possible improper use by Catholic Charities, a major refugee resettlement contractor in San Antonio, TX, of federal grant money.

Before I get to what Dan Cadman at CIS says about this revelation, readers should know that these government contractors are virtually never audited financially.

I was told when I first began investigating the Refugee Program that they were subjected to “program” audits only, but not financial ones you would expect when this many tax dollars are involved.  What that means is that the non-profit contractor has to report on how well they are doing with their various projects and programs, but not how they spend the money (your money) or where exactly it goes!

It seems to me that a quick and easy amendment to Refugee law would be for Congress to mandate FINANCIAL auditing on a regular basis.

Here is Cadman at CIS:

The Department of Justice’s Office of Inspector General (DOJ OIG) released a report this month entitled “Audit of the Office of Justice Programs Services for Victims of Human Trafficking Grant Awarded to Catholic Charities, Archdiocese of San Antonio, Inc., Texas”. The grant was for a substantial amount of money, $810,000, of which $730,491 has already been disbursed, and was intended to further the work of the South Texas Coalition Against Human Trafficking and Slavery (STCAHTS).

According to DOJ OIG, “The objective of this audit was to determine whether costs claimed under the grant were allowable, supported, and in accordance with applicable laws, regulations, guidelines, and terms and conditions.” That’s pretty straightforward and seems like a basic requirement given the amount of taxpayer dollars involved.

The DOJ OIG staff found that Catholic Charities Archdiocese of San Antonio (CCAOSA) pretty much failed the audit on all counts:

Specifically, CCAOSA: (1) did not follow procedures for identification and procurement of contractors and there were no procedures for monitoring contractors, (2) had unsupported expenditures and drawdowns of $20,363, (3) submitted inaccurate financial reports, and (4) did not maintain supporting documentation for progress reports.

Perhaps such an examination should have occurred before more than 90 percent of the money had been provided, but that’s water under the bridge.

[….]

No amount of cross-checking by subject matter or division (ORR is a part of HHS’s Administration for Children and Families) revealed any audit work done by HHS OIG despite the tens of millions of dollars apportioned, and not just to Catholic Charities, but to a number of both secular and religiously affiliated charities. One wonders at this lapse.

New readers:  See our three-part series on Texas from earlier this week, beginning with Part I here.   Eight of the nine major federal contractors are operating in Texas, the top resettlement state in the nation.

See our previous post this morning on the US Conference of Catholic Bishops migration committee chairman calling for 65,000 Syrians (mostly Muslims to be selected by the UN) to be admitted to the US by President Obama before he leaves office.

Catholic Bishops join the chorus: bring 65,000 Syrians to the US ASAP; Pope to lecture Congress on immigration?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 12, 2015

I’ve been away in Texas (see my Texas posts if you haven’t already), so will have some catching up to do.

From National Catholic Reporter we learn that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops Migration Committee chairman, Bishop Eusebio Elizondo, has gone on the record saying no more detention centers for illegal migrants, let in the Central America ‘children,’ and bring in 65,000 Syrians while you are at it!

Seattle Auxiliary Bishop Eusebio Elizondo welcomes the world to come live in America! No mention of the fact that the USCCB is paid by the head from the US Treasury to take care of the refugees and the illegal migrant children!

He also says the Bishops support so-called ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform’ (aka amnesty) in Congress. I sure hope they aren’t lobbying with some of the millions of taxpayer dollars they receive every year!

Everywhere I go, including in Texas this week, Catholics I meet are stunned to learn how far Left the Catholic Bishops are.

Here is the National Catholic Reporter:

Seattle Auxiliary Bishop Eusebio Elizondo said the Migration Committee he chairs continues the push for reform of the immigration detention system in addition to comprehensive immigration reform. He noted that the latter has stalled in the House of Representatives and that the U.S. bishops supported executive actions by the Obama administration, itself currently tied up in the courts, to provide deferred deportation and work authorization to people in the country illegally.

On the detention camps, Elizondo referenced the bishops’ May report that called for alternatives to family detention.

[….]

He said the committee supports the U.S. Department of State’s in-country processing of children in danger in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, which allows them to apply for asylum without having to make the journey to the U.S. border. The committee also advocates a massive increase in the number of Syrian refugees, including religious minorities from Syria and Iraq, accepted into the U.S.: a target of 65,000 of the most vulnerable in the next two years, compared to the 673 resettled since 2011.  [Mark my words, only a small fraction, less than 8% at the present rate, will be “religious minorities” and he knows it! So far 92% are Sunni Muslims—ed]

Elizondo said he hopes Pope Francis will spotlight immigration reform during his September visit to the U.S., particularly during his Sept. 24 address to Congress.

If the Pope plans to lecture us about immigration maybe some good Catholics should protest!

You have got to tell Congress NO to 65,000 Syrians!  See my youtube video on what you have to do, if you haven’t already.

Endnote to my new Texas friends:  California and Texas are tied for being the top resettlement states for Syrians so far.

New book out in the Civilization Jihad Readers Series at Secure Freedom

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 9, 2015

Since I am headed to Texas early tomorrow, I have no time to do this justice, but investigative journalist James Simpson has taken what I began in my little book Refugee Resettlement and the Hijra to America and gone even deeper into the complex web of elitist foundations, government agencies and Leftwing organizations driving mass immigration and the colonization of America.

It’s titled:

The Red-Green Axis: Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to Erase America (Civilization Jihad Reader Series Book 4)

You can get it here at Amazon!

Islamic charity with terror connections helping refugees resettle in America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 9, 2015

When I first saw the news from Kentucky, here, in February my ears perked up.  I have been following the refugee issue for eight years now and until February I had never heard of any Islamic charity participating in refugee resettlement here in America.  As regular readers know, of the so-called nine ‘charities’ working with refugees, five are Christian groups, one is Jewish and three are secular.

Now we learn from a report at the Center for Security Policy by Alessandra Gennarelli that in fact there are at least three locations in the US where a charity with questionable ties to terrorism elsewhere in the world is donating some of its vast wealth to Muslim refugees here in the US.

See this important report on Islamic Relief USA!

The largest U.S. Muslim Charity, which has been linked to terrorism finance, is now playing a role in helping to settle refugees from terror torn Syria.

Islamic Relief USA (IRUSA) is an affiliate of Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW), the largest international Islamic charity in the world, with a $240 million operating budget, nearly 300 employees, chapters in more than 12 countries with their own multi-billion dollar budgets, and operations in over 30 countries, all based in Birmingham, England.

IRUSA specializes in refugee assistance and has a history of working with the United Nations and specifically the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), the aid agency for Palestinian refugees.

The IRUSA website specifies in detail its role in assisting incoming refugees saying:

“IRUSA assists refugees in starting their new life in the United States. Volunteers are trained to welcome refugee families to their new communities, help them access local services, and show them around their new communities. Volunteers also can help with resume building and job searches. In some instances, refugees may receive rent assistance so they have a place to stay while looking for employment.”

The charity has also been pushing for western countries to take in more Syrian refugees.  I guess they know all about the Hijra!

This is a game-changer!  Read it all here.

Texas: number one refugee resettlement state in the nation (primer part III, what to do!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 9, 2015

Because I’m going to Texas tomorrow, over the last two days I posted a couple of information posts on Texas (see Part I and Part II).  I really only skimmed the surface, but hopefully provided information many of you had not seen before.  But, now I hope that isn’t the end of it!

I believe with all my heart that if we don’t get immigration under control immediately, and I mean both LEGAL and illegal immigration we won’t recognize America in the next decade.  Our unique American culture does matter and western civilization is superior and we are going to have to work to keep it.  You need only look to Europe to see what is in store for us if we don’t get to work now!

Cecilia Munoz, Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett are winning! They are changing America by changing the people. You have 16-17 months to regain control and elect a president willing to turn this around.

So for Texans, and everyone, first find a few like-minded citizens in your state to help you.   Don’t wring your hands if there aren’t a hundred people willing to give up a little time shopping, watching TV or barbecuing, you only need 4 or 5 to begin your community organizing!

Yes, just like the Left, you have to ‘community organize!’  There is no silver bullet to stop this.  It is going to take a lot of plain old hard work!

* I recommend keeping your organization(s) loose.  You don’t need to run right out and try to get a 501(c) IRS designation which will only slow you down.  You don’t need a tax designation to proceed with using your free speech! Come up with a name for the group.  But, don’t discourage others if they want to form their own groups.  The Left does that all the time—2 people here is a group, and three over there!

* Do your homework.  Get the facts about refugee resettlement in your state.  The other side has for years kept this program as secret as they could for a reason.  That reason is that when people learn how it works, they are stunned and they don’t want it!  Knowledge is power.  The refugee industry doesn’t like it when you know how it works!

* In addition to learning how the program works, find out who is pushing refugee resettlement in your community.  Find and expose the elected officials, the business leaders (the Chamber of Commerce!), industry leaders (meatpackers for one!), rich foundations and the church leaders responsible for pouring immigrants into your town or state.  This is one of Barack Obama’s favorite Alinsky rules—the name and shame rule.  We can use it too!

* And, this is my number one harangueYou must have some way of posting or reporting on everything you learn and for that I recommend a blog or website where you can keep an archive of reports and documents as well as the latest news.  Facebook works too, but it is somewhat limiting as some people don’t use facebook.  You need to get your information out around your local media to your people and to new people who join you, or would like to join you, along the way.  And, for goodness sakes, if more than one person in the state wants to maintain a website, go for it!  Many voices are better than one because they can’t then shut you all up!

* But, you must use your local media too!  You need to use every avenue of the media that you possibly can.  Letters-to-the-editor and opinion pieces in local newspapers will get the information outside of your circle.   Local talk radio is great on this subject.

* Look for opportunities to get press—a rally, a guest speaker or even the release of a new report from your group are all reasons to put out press releases.  The goal is to spread the message to ever-widening circles.

* Find someone (or several) in your group willing to be speakers for civic groups around the state.  Develop a power point presentation and take it from town to town speaking to tea parties, American legions, or even rotary clubs.  This is why your facts are so important, especially the economic facts.  People will be really concerned when they see how much of the US Refugee Program is being foisted off on to local taxpayers.

* Elected officials hate noise!  Like it or not, you are going to have to bug every elected official at all levels of government.  Your mayors and city leaders will try to get out of any responsibility claiming this is a federal issue, don’t let them get away with that.  The truth is, if the federal government meets a lot of local organized resistance including from the local elected officials, the feds and their resettlement contractors will move on to other softer targets.

Letters and e-mails to elected officials are not enough anymore. You will have to get in their faces when they are in the district or state, and for goodness sakes get in the faces of the Presidential candidates as they tour the country.  Ask them where they stand on refugee resettlement and other LEGAL immigration programs that have gotten way too large and way too out of control.  Don’t let them get away with that tired old line:  Legal immigration is good, illegal is bad!

And, I am sorry to say, for Texas, your governors and your US Senators for the last decade and more have allowed the immigration mushroom cloud to grow over the state, why?  Why are they willing to see Texas turned BLUE?

* Last but not least, join forces nationally.  Hopefully we will be setting up a data base (state by state) of activists on this issue, so we can connect you within your states, and so we can act swiftly when national action is required.   Stay tuned for more on that.

We are up against a lot of power and a lot of money, but don’t let that discourage you!

Again, if we don’t get immigration under control and soon, nothing else matters!

Don’t be afraid!  Who cares if they call you names!

Calling you names is the only power the other side has over you, take that power away by not cowering to their name-calling!  Consider it a badge of honor if they call you a racist, a xenophobe or an islamophobe!

Editor:  This was not meant to be an exhaustive list of organizing ideas.  If you have others, please send them as comments and I’ll add them here as updates to this post.

‘Welcoming America’ comes to Long Island, is it in your town yet? Find out!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 8, 2015

It’s been almost exactly two years since I first heard that the Office of Refugee Resettlement in the Dept. of Health and Human Services had hired a community organizing contractor (with your money!) to tamp down any “pockets of resistance” to the seeding of immigrants (legal and illegal) in your towns and cities.

Read my original post here.

The ORR spokesman at the meeting in Lancaster, PA actually used the phrase “pockets of resistance” to describe any of you questioning what Washington was doing to your community.

Wanted! Bloggers to track and report on what David Lubell is doing! He is the founder and head honcho at Welcoming America. Obama honored him in Nashville last year. His community organizing group was started with seed money from George Soros and he is working to change your communities across America forever. http://www.tennessean.com/story/money/2014/12/09/obama-honors-immigrant-rights-leader-david-lubell/20156983/

Since then of course we have learned that the whole seeding idea is part of Obama’s New Americans initiative.

I’m bringing you this post at a website called the Independent Sentinel for a very specific reason (in addition to educating you about how ‘Welcoming America’ is working to control anyone in Nassau and Suffolk counties that might object to being replaced by 526,000 immigrants with more on the way).

First, please read the post by Sara Noble, here.

And this is why I am posting it:  Sara Noble is doing something!

She is investigating, writing reports and publishing them on national issues and on her local community.

Everywhere I go, people ask, what can I do?  What can I do? This is what you can do—become an investigative blogger!  Or, a regular letter-to-the-editor writer, a facebook page editor (not just yak about personal stuff), tweet on a specific subject.

We must do the work old fashioned investigative reporters used to do.  And, we have to get our research out beyond our own circle of like-minded people.

Here is what Sara says:

Independent blogs like this one provide an opportunity for common folk to battle the corrupted mainstream media in a search for truth. We are searching, always searching…

I don’t know how many times I have to say it, but it does you no good to be a great reader of the news, or even a researcher and then send me e-mails (filled with links) that fill up my in-boxes!   Remember it is just me here!

The other day I suggested someone start an investigative blog on food stamp fraud at immigrant-run convenience stores—someone please tell me you will soon launch that!

We can help save America, but we have to get our facts and get them out far and wide because the mainstream media (even Fox News) is controlled by the establishment.

Welcoming America Watch!

Now that would be a great title of a blog or website!  One of you looking for something to do from home could easily do this….

Track Welcoming America around America!

Report what they are up to!

Propaganda campaign to bring 65,000 Syrians to your towns heating up!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 5, 2015

Somehow I must make everyone of you understand how critical this is right now.

The refugee resettlement contractors, the humanitarian industrial complex, the United Nations and 14 US Senators (the Jihad Caucus!) are working day and night to tell the world that America is bad because we have not opened the floodgates to tens of thousands of UN-chosen, mostly Sunni Muslim refugees!

Director Human Rights First: We want 65,000 Syrians admitted to the US NOW! The fact that the US has not started the flow in a big way is a huge embarrassment to the “humanitarians” and to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

Here is one more story, this time at IRIN (a “humanitarian” news outlet connected to the UN) entitled: ‘How US is failing Syrian refugees.’

Human rights groups, members of Congress and city planners are among those trying to persuade President Barack Obama to allow more Syrians to settle here. However, security concerns, anti-immigration sentiment and bureaucratic hurdles all stand in the way.

It has taken the world a long time to acknowledge that most of the 12 million Syrians displaced – inside and outside their country – by the five-year civil war will not be going home anytime soon. Neighbours Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey have absorbed nearly four million Syrians between them. Other countries have been slower to step up to the plate, particularly in terms of pledging to take some of the 88,000 Syrian refugees allocated for resettlement by the UN’s refugee agency, UNHCR.

Twenty-eight countries have so far agreed to take in 62,000 of them – with Germany taking nearly half.

These are phony baloney numbers.  I’ve been watching the European situation and there is a lot of talk about Germany accepting tens of thousands of Syrians, but it has not happened!   And, besides, Germany says it isn’t going to take them permanently, as we do, but wants them to return to Syria at some point in the future.

Also, the UN wants some countries, especially the US, to start the flow in a big way so they can guilt-trip other countries into following suit.  It is important that you help stop this madness!

The US has not committed to a specific number, but Larry Yungk, senior resettlement officer with UNHCR in Washington, said it is expected to take in only 35 percent of the 13,000 individual cases submitted for consideration by his agency. The protracted US security clearance process, which involves additional checks for Syrians, means it is likely to be at least another two years before the refugees set foot on American soil.

“This is just too little and too slow for a country that should be a global leader,” said Eleanor Acer, from Human Rights First, which is advocating for the US to take in 65,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2016.

Read it all.

The article goes on to promote that dumb idea of bringing 50,000 Syrians to re-populate Detroit!

I don’t care how hopeless your representatives in Washington may be, but please, please express your concerns to them!

Please everyone reading this, call your Member of Congress and Senators starting today and continue next week.  Tell them NO—do not admit Syrian Muslim refugees who will, of course, be planted in your towns and cities across the entire country!

See my latest Youtube video and send it to everyone you know. It is short and explains to Americans what they need to do and why.

Stickin’-it to Rep. Trey Gowdy, US State Dept. contractor World Relief brings first refugees to Spartanburg

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 5, 2015

Update June 6th: World Net Daily wrote about this yesterday, here.  Also, be sure to see the exchange of comments to this post which we highlight here.

It is not really World Relief so much as the Obama State Department and Secretary of State John Kerry.  Gowdy had asked that no refugees be resettled in his district until his many questions had been answered to his satisfaction.   See our post yesterday about the inadequate response Gowdy has received so far.

The refugees from DR Congo*** resettled in Spartanburg apparently about a week or so ago could just as easily have been taken to any one of 190 (more!) cities in the US, but clearly the State Department is sending a message to Gowdy—(expletive you!).

As we said previously, Spartanburg is pivotal in the battle for determining who controls the resettlement process—will the UN/US State Department ram third-worlders down the throats of small town America, or will cities and states play any role in the present secretive resettlement process?

Just a reminder!  Rep. Trey Gowdy is not just any Congressman with concern for his district, he is Chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee responsible for the refugee program!

If anyone has any power in Congress on this issue, it is Gowdy.  The question is, is he willing to exercise his power?

Here is the latest from GoUpstate.

In this pivotal showdown, score one for Secretary of State John Kerry!

Spartanburg churches are welcoming refugees who recently arrived here.

Jason Lee, director of World Relief Spartanburg, said two refugees from the Congo arrived in Spartanburg in late May. He would not provide a specific date, citing security reasons. He pointed out that they are persecuted.

Meanwhile, Rep. Trey Gowdy called the U.S. State Department’s response to his latest questions about a resettlement agency’s plan to sponsor refugees in Spartanburg “sorely inadequate.”

Gowdy has invited the federal agency to brief elected officials on the refugee resettlement.

The Republican congressman issued a statement Wednesday after receiving the State Department’s response.

Gowdy has written the federal agency twice to obtain details about plans to sponsor refugees in Spartanburg. World Relief, a faith-based refugee resettlement agency, opened a Spartanburg office earlier this year. The state Department of Social Services approved Spartanburg as a new refugee resettlement site, according to the State Department’s response.

World Relief Spartanburg has been authorized to resettle up to 60 refugees in the 2015 fiscal year.  [FY2015 ends on September 30, 2015, so they should be coming in pretty quickly now—ed]

There is a lot more, continue reading here.

Here is my question:  Is the US State Department getting even with Gowdy over Benghazi? 

***The Congolese

Asst. Secretary of State for Population Refugees and Migration: We will take most of the 50,000 from DR Congo that the UN wants us to take!

We are assuming that Jason Lee is referring to refugees from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DR Congo), a poor corrupt country in central Africa, and not simply the Congo.

In 2013 Asst. Secretary of State Anne Richard reported that the UN wants 50,000 from the DR Congo resettled over the next few years and that we will take most of them.

If you visit the State Department’s data base, here, we have admitted only 34 refugees from the Congo this fiscal year, but 2,921 this fiscal year so far from DR Congo.  So again, we assume Spartansburg’s new American “seedlings” are from DR Congo.

The majority from the DR Congo are not Muslims although a few are as we reported here.

A large number from DR Congo are abused women and children.  We learned, here, that many of the women need extensive mental health care due to the abuse they have suffered.

By the way, the UN is always in a hurry to clean out its camps and send refugees to the first world rather than waiting out conflicts and then returning refugees to their homes or to countries with a similar culture.  However, in the irony of ironies, they are not in any hurry to resettle Palestinians (that is good for us!) leaving them in ‘camps’ on the border of Israel in order to harass that country for the last 6 decades.

For new readers, our original post on Spartanburg, with updates, may be found here.
