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).

sutherland

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.

First African refugees arrive in Montana; Helena advocates say they will wait until after November for theirs

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 23, 2016

Update: Be sure to see the mayor of Missoula’s op-ed of a few days ago.  Not so much for what he says, but for the large numbers of comments on both sides of the issue.  Makes you realize that there is a huge divide in Montana about whether it is wise to bring in the third world.

A family of 6 “Congolese” refugees have arrived in Missoula, MT as the first “east African” refugees we are told. (The Congo and the DR Congo are not in east Africa.  The countries producing refugees in east Africa are Somalia, Ethiopia and Sudan. Just saying!)

Stephen Maly

Stephen Maly of World Montana has been advocating for refugees to be placed in Helena, but says he is backing off until after the November elections. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2015/06/26/montana-alert-group-wants-to-bring-in-syrian-refugees-to-replace-your-aging-population/

Here is the story (Montana Public Radio) on the family that will be very costly for Montana and US taxpayers to support:

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — An exhausted Congelese family of six experiencing culture shock has arrived in Missoula, the first of an anticipated 100 east African refugees expected to be resettled in Montana over the next year, a resettlement agency official said.

The family arrived last Thursday and International Rescue Committee Missoula director Molly Short Carr declined to identify them because of privacy concerns, but said three of the family’s four children spent their entire lives in a Tanzanian refugee camp.

Temporary housing?  The US State Department normally requires that they be placed in permanent housing upon arrival, and heck this contractor in Missoula has had months to get housing organized.

The family has been placed in temporary housing. The IRC will help them apply for social services, Social Security cards, register the children for school and help the parents enroll in English classes. The parents speak Swahili and French.

A total of 25 refugees are expected to arrive in Missoula by the end of September. Missoula County commissioners previously invited 100 refugees a year to resettle in the county, and the IRC re-opened its Missoula office earlier this year.

Meanwhile advocates for diversifying Montana in Helena say they will wait until after the November election to renew their call for Africans/Middle Easterners for their city.

Great Falls Tribune (hat tip: Joanne):

HELENA – The head of an effort to relocate Syrian refugees to Helena said Monday the group is delaying efforts until after the Nov. 8 election, saying the current political climate has stifled progress.

Stephen Maly, vice president of World Montana, said a grass-roots effort to bring Syrian refugees has been in “arrested development because of political turmoil surrounding the issue.”

“We’re trying to make progress without getting involved in politics,” he said.

Maly said there is draft legislation for the 2017 session to change refugee policy. But that is a federal issue and “not in the state bailiwick.”

He said the timing is horrible for his group of volunteers “to push something forward in political climate. People are misinformed and angry.”

“It’s not in the cards until the election is settled,” he said.

Continue reading and see how the subject of refugees has become a big issue in the gubernatorial contest there.  This is the sort of effort you should make where you live—inject the refugee controversy in to any race you can in your state!

But, it also confirms what we have been saying—November is it! If Hillary is elected the flood gates to the third world will be flung wide open!

See our extensive archive on Montana, here. And, why are we getting so many refugees from the DR Congo? Because in 2013 the Obama Administration said we would take 50,000 because the UN told us to!

Reception and Placement Abstracts: get them and use them!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 22, 2016

Knowledge is power!

We’ve been talking about those pesky R & P Abstracts for more than a year now and some of you are starting to get-it and get them!

By ‘get-it’ I mean that these documents, prepared at the level of your local resettlement contractor with the help and guidance of one of the major nine federal contractors, are the blueprints for what is being planned for your town for the upcoming fiscal year.

Update: I’ve been talking about all of this for so long I forget that new people don’t know how to find a contractor near them.  Go here and find an office near you (any of the agencies within a hundred miles of you could be bringing refugees to your town).  Call or write to the office and ask for a copy of the FY2017 R & P Abstract.

Fiscal year 2017 begins October 1, 2016.

paul-ryan-catholic-pic-601x320

Speaker Paul Ryan and other Catholics of Wisconsin must have run out of poor Americans to take care of as they pour the third world into Milwaukee. His hometown of Janesville doesn’t get any refugees yet, maybe it’s time some are sent there?

It is my contention that the public is entitled to this document in advance because you have a right to know what Washington has planned for your town (especially because you are paying for this!)

You should be told about this plan before it even goes to Washington where it becomes the basis for the President’s ‘determination’ in September when he sends his wishlist for how many refugees Congress must fund for the upcoming year.   For eight of the last nine years that I’ve been following the program, Congress says NOT a word and just takes the Presidential determination with a ‘yes master, anything you say, master’ attitude.

Last year there was a little push-back, but ultimately Congress (Speaker Paul Ryan!) agreed to pay for the increased number of new refugees (from the average of about 70,000 to 85,000 for FY16) to accommodate the Syrian influx.

So here we go again. Obama has one more shot at changing America by changing the people. The minimum number we can expect Obama to propose is 100,000.

Before I get to what an Abstract looks like and what you should do with it when you get it, I want to say that not only should communities have this document and see it published in a local newspaper, but it should be discussed in the community before it is finalized.  I recommend that every ‘welcoming’ community hold a public hearing at the mayor/council level to discuss the numbers being proposed and the amenities the town is offering the refugees.

[Note to long time readers, we have done this exercise before, see especially here when I obtained the R & P Abstract for a new resettlement site—Reno, NV. Perhaps re-read that post now. And, I encourage your local research teams to read through the ‘Proposed Refugee Admissions for Fiscal Year 2016, report to Congress’ by clicking here as part of their investigative work.]

Why do I know that the R & P Abstracts are important for you to obtain?  Because the contractors do not want you to see them! In fact one of the nine contractors (maybe all of them!) sent a message to their subcontractors this past year specifically instructing their offices to NOT give them out to anyone who calls.  So what are they hiding?

Despite attempts to keep them from public view, some of you are successfully obtaining your local Abstracts and a few are actually receiving the plan for FY2017 and not the older ones.  Of course in many of these cases it has taken a Freedom of Information Act request, but at least you have them.  A few of the ones I have seen are not complete based on the 16 pages of the document for Reno, NV which includes VERY useful and informative letters of support from various entities and agencies including the local Islamic Center.

Let’s have a look at the troubled city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin!

Clearly the African-American community there is troubled!  That is a given (you would have to be living under a rock to not know that!).

CC Wisconsin

So what is the US State Department planning for Fiscal year 2017 with the paid help (you pay them!) of three resettlement contractors?  They will be dropping off a total of 925 more impoverished people from Burma, Somalia, Iraq, DR Congo, Sudan, Afghanistan, Bhutan (Nepal really), Eritrea and Ethiopia in FY 2017 alone to compete with the local African American community for work and for ‘services.’

There are three federal contractors (bidding for bodies) with offices set up in Milwaukee (three! why is there a need to have three agencies doing the same work?).  They include the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Inc.), USCRI (International Institute of Wisconsin), and the Ethiopian Community Development Council (Pan-African Community Association).

The Catholics say they want 500 refugees (included in their wish list are devout Rohingya Muslims from Burma).  USCRI wants 300 and ECDC wants 125.

In light of the trouble Milwaukee has right now, if there was a public hearing in advance of these documents going to Washington, isn’t it likely that members of the public would say—well hold on here, we have a lot of problems we need to solve right here at home before we invite the world’s poverty to Wisconsin!

We will look at the R & P Abstract for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee (which also serves Sheboygan). (I confess I don’t know what every line of the document means!)

 

 

Screenshot (3)

 

Of course you can see the location and the agency name.  And, you can see that they expect to resettle 450 refugees by September 30th (for FY 2016).

Then the most important section follows where they fill in the numbers from each area of the world they want to place in Milwaukee beginning in October for FY17.  “Tie capacity” means that there are some relatives or some others related in some way to those already there.

Abbreviations:

AF = Africa.  African ethnic groups we resettle are from: DR Congo, Somalia, Burundi, Sudan, Ethiopia, Eritrea and a few other lesser groups.

EA = East Asia. This group includes the large number of Burmese we have been admitting for years (and now including the Rohingya Muslims). Also, smaller numbers of Vietnamese, Chinese, Laotians and North Koreans are admitted from this region.

ECA = Europe and Central Asia.  Ukrainians and those living in the former Soviet Union like Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan fall in this group. Earlier we took tens of thousands from the Balkans.

LAC = Latin America and the Caribbean. One major country in this category is Colombia (don’t ask me why we favor Colombia!), and of course Cuba.  Think about it, we still take tens of thousands of Cubans!

NE/SA= Near East and South Asia.  This is the big category right now and includes: Afghanistan, Bhutan/Nepal, Iran, Iraq, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Syria.

In our sample Abstract, Catholic Charities of Milwaukee*** wants more of the following ethnic groups to add diversity to a struggling city.  Burmese, Chin, Karen and Rohingya are all religious minorities from Burma (Myanmar) where the Buddhist government wants to keep Burma for Buddhists only, so we see it as our job (America’s job) to take care of all their displaced people (even though the Karen and Rohingya are enemies of each other!).  But, of course the naive do-gooders think all of their differences will melt away when placed together in slums in Milwaukee.

Somalis, Iraqis, Sudanese, Congolese and Cuban round out their wish list.

And, wow, see they have 50 languages available locally from which to select expensive interpreters!

See that PRM (that stands for the State Department branch called ‘Population Refugees and Migration’) has monitored the agency and found them not completely compliant with their contract in one recent year.

Now, let’s have a look at another page:

Screenshot (4)

 

See the industries they will be placing their refugees with—Meatpacking is one! And, check out the wages. A family is not going to live on $8.75 an hour so of course the refugees will remain on welfare.

And notice that Catholic Charities is bragging that the government has great medical care available for refugees in Milwaukee.  Oh boy, that means you get to pay for their Obamacare!

Here is the third page of this abstract.  And, by the way, I feel sure this abstract is not complete.  If Reno was 16 pages this one has been shortened for some reason. What are they hiding?

Screenshot (5)

 

Have a look at this chart.  Here is what this is about.  The contractor/subcontractor is supposed to be putting up its share of money for this supposed PUBLIC/PRIVATE partnership.  So here they have to prove they have some skin in the game, that this isn’t being run completely out of the US taxpayers’ pockets (which it is, but here they try to pretend it isn’t).

What do you think the odds are that Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, which ponied-up a whopping $3,000 in cash from individuals in 2015, is actually going to find $100,000 from individuals in 2017?  Don’t make me laugh!

Then see the line ‘Volunteer hours/miles!’ They need to find volunteers because the volunteers time and miles are turned into cash (on paper) for the purpose of showing the feds in this phony system that they are doing their share to contribute to the resettlement of hundreds of poor people to Milwaukee.

And, don’t miss the line with the amount of money local and state government is handing out (and they keep telling us this is completely funded from the federal level).  Ha! Ha!

Then see the last line.  CC says it will contribute $540 per refugee in cash in FY2017, but only managed $242 in 2015. Optimistic aren’t they!

And, that doesn’t mean the cash necessarily goes to the refugee, but likely goes toward the agency’s overhead!

If you want a really good laugh, you should see the Abstract for the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) for FY17 for Milwaukee.  They are going to contribute a grand total of $53 in cash per refugee they resettle while in 2015 they shelled out a whole $24 per refugee (whoop-de-do).

Are you still with me????

So what do you do with your local R & P Abstract once you get it?

You must make the document public!

You are going to have to figure out how to do that where you live.  Go before your local government (when the media is there) and ask if your elected officials had any role in its preparation. Tell them to hold a public meeting to discuss it.

Make sure all those in your local group with similar concerns are given a copy.

If you are doing a power point presentation in your state, be sure to put the pages on the power point.

Take it to your Member of Congress and US Senators and tell them you disapprove of the numbers and that you don’t want them to vote to fund it.

Demand to know exactly which ethnic groups are coming to your town.  And, are they screened for communicable diseases?

I feel like I am beating a dead horse with this next one…..

If you can’t get to the media (those local papers have been captured!), you will have to write a blog or website so all of the information you gather is made public by your own alternative media.  Facebook pages are not as good because I don’t think you can catalog information for future reference.

It is pretty late in the cycle to make a huge impact this year with the Abstracts except to pressure Congress in to not funding Obama’s planned expansion of the program.

Next year? What do we do? Who knows…..It all depends on November!

*** Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee received almost $7 MILLION FROM US TAXPAYERS in the last 3 years.  See USASpending.gov here.

Hillary VEEP was one of the original 14 members of the Senate Jihad Caucus

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 21, 2016

Who are they? Those are the 14 Senators led by Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and Illinois Senator Dick Durban who last year wrote to Obama asking that he admit 65,000 Syrian (mostly Sunni Muslim) refugees to the US.

tim-kaine-hillary-clinton

Kaine: I want 65,000 Syrian Muslims to add to America’s welfare rolls! (Hillary proudly looks on)

I had a good laugh here in September of last year when we saw that the New York Times had picked up our nickname for the group but couldn’t bother to link or even name where they got it!

You can bet this same gang will be upping their demands when Obama does his UN pow-wow in September and sends his final “determination” to Congress right after that.

Here are the Senators to watch. Guesses?  Will they demand 65,000 again, 75,000? or maybe 100,000?

Thanks to reader Julia for reminding me that Kaine is on this distinguished list.

Below for your amusement are the 14 Members of the Senate Jihad Caucus led by Senators Dick Durban (D-IL) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN):

Al Franken (D-MN)

Patrick Leahy (D-VT)

Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)

Patty Murray (D-WA)

Robert Menendez (D-NJ)

Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)

Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)

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

Tim Kaine (D-VA)

Edward Markey (D-MA)

Sherrod Brown (D-OH)

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

Refugee resettlement becomes major issue in Election 2016; death blow to Hillary?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 20, 2016

Putting a proposal for the resettlement of hundreds of thousands of third worlders, including large numbers who come from countries that hate us, squarely in front of the voters in the weeks before the November election could make or break a 2016 presidential candidate.

Obama’s September UN gambit comes as a huge political risk for the Hillary camp and her friends at the Refugee Council USA *** because by placing the hot topic so clearly before the public it could be like waving a red cape before a bull.  Hillary has already said she wants 65,000 Syrians admitted in one year and the public is overwhelmingly against ‘welcoming’ any more!

Early polling already indicates that the vast majority of Americans do not want more Syrian refugees brought to their towns. Will the Obama UN propaganda stunt serve to wake up even more Americans to the nature of this program? We think so.

Nezer

Melanie Nezer (left) of the Hebrew Aid Society is the present chairman of the Refugee Council USA which is a consortium of open border groups including the nine major federal resettlement contractors. RCUSA lobbies Congress and the Administration for more money for their goal of changing America by changing the people. RCUSA will be busy on the Hill reaching out to Republicans who hold the purse strings.

Politico (a progressive leaning news outlet aimed at putting news in Congressional office waiting rooms) has published a story that is worth mentioning here, not so much for what it says, but for what it implies.

Reporter Nahal Toosi tells us much we already know, but what interested me most is the mention (a hint really) of the fact that by pushing for more than a doubling of refugees to be admitted to the US in 2017, the resettlement industry will be front and center in Election 2016.

By advocating so strongly with a rally next weekend and then the Obama UN shindig in September, will the industry become fully exposed to an attack from Trump as Americans increasingly begin to understand how secretive this program has been and how much they are shelling out to bring poverty and possible insecurity to their hometowns, not to mention the maddening fact that most refugees immediately receive all welfare available to Americans including SSI for the elderly and disabled?

It is remarkable to me that the more than 3-decades-old refugee program could make or break an American presidential candidate—and it could if Trump makes the most of  Obama’s UN stunt and Hillary’s on-the-record support for 65,000 Syrians to be admitted to the US in one year!

Here (below) are some snips from Politico that interested me.  The refugee industry wants to nearly triple the number of refugees admitted to the US to 200,000. They are urging Obama to make that determination in September, the month when presidents by law send their refugee wish list to Congress.

The average number of refugees admitted throughout most of Obama’s presidency has been 70,000 per year.

[Editor note: there is a  lot of confusion about numbers.  We are discussing only those refugees admitted through this one program and not considering the tens of thousands of successful asylum seekers and another 100,000 or so unaccompanied alien children the administration refers to as “humanitarian arrivals.”  This 200,000 also does not include the hundreds of thousands entering through myriad visa programs.]

Politico (emphasis is mine):

Some are calling on Obama to admit at least 200,000 refugees from around the world, including tens of thousands of Syrians, through the U.S. refugee resettlement program and other routes. That’s effectively twice as many total refugees as the Obama administration has planned to accept in the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1.

[….]

Obama also is preparing to host a Sept. 20 international summit on the world’s migration crisis, a meeting in which he is expected to urge other countries to double their intake of refugees. The gathering will be held on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York City, just weeks before the end of a U.S. presidential campaign in which Republican nominee Donald Trump has made refugees an incendiary topic.

[….]

Shannon Scribner, a top official with Oxfam America, said her sense is that, despite pressure from activists, Obama is unlikely to go beyond 100,000 total refugees. One reason is that Congress controls the funding for the refugee resettlement program, and Republicans could kill any request for more money, she noted.

[….]

Trump has embraced the backlash against refugees in Europe, too — openly rooting for the British exit from the EU and comparing Clinton to Angela Merkel, the German chancellor who has emerged as the symbol of the continent’s initially welcoming stance toward the Syrian influx.

[….]

Obama likely will use the daylong summit in September, which will come on the heels of a similar U.N. summit, to push for more out-of-the-box efforts to help the world’s refugees.

[….]

“This could be one of the great Trojan horses,” Trump said of the refugee program. He has also accused Clinton of wanting to spend “hundreds of billions of dollars to settle Middle Eastern refugees in the United States” — a claim that independent fact checkers have debunked — and dinged her repeatedly for calling last September for the U.S. to admit 65,000 properly screened Syrian refugees, a 550 percent increase over Obama’s figure. [The only error in Trump’s comment is the word ‘hundreds,’ leave that out and Trump is correct—this will cost US taxpayer BILLIONS!—ed]

[….]

The September summit gives refugee advocates another chance to boost momentum for their cause. Some groups are hoping in particular to rebuild trust in the refugee program among Republicans, with outreach efforts on Capitol Hill.

At the same time, the summit could re-ignite the partisan debate, especially on the presidential campaign trail.

Help re-ignite the partisan debate!

Here is what you need to remember:  in the next 10 weeks, you have to make as much political noise as you can about the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program where you live! 

You must work hard to get your concerns and the controversy out to the media in whatever way you can!  That means all media!  If you can’t get to your local Leftwing controlled newspaper, find other avenues to reach your fellow citizens even if you have to hand out fliers at the county fair!

And, then this is key! Get your ‘noise’ to your Senators and Members of Congress.  Your House members are all up for election and THEY CONTROL THE PURSE STRINGS.  I know you are saying to me that your Member is a chicken or worse.  That doesn’t matter, make their lives miserable!  They are home now until right after Labor Day.  Find them! Go to their offices, picket the office if necessary, meet them at the local county fair, attend any townhall they hold and hammer them on this one issue!

Afterall, Politico is telling us that the Open Borders Refugee Industry is going to be hitting Republican offices on Capitol Hill because they know that the only way they can win is to get Congress (Speaker Paul Ryan!) to fund 200,000 or more refugee arrivals!

You must out maneuver them!  Remember:

They need your money to change America!

*** Here 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):

Bowling Green, KY: More confirmation that refugee resettlement is not about humanitarianism, but about supplying cheap labor

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 19, 2016

I had plenty of confirmation on my recent 30-day swing through cities and towns of the west and mid-west that it is industries looking to boost their bottom lines that drive most refugee resettlement in America. 

It is food processing/meat packing, manufacturing, and the hotel industry that have discovered they can enjoy the cheap labor (while refugees continue to bolster their income with welfare*** of all sorts) at the expense of the US taxpayer and at the expense of the cultural and social upheaval communities experience.

Chris Kantosky

Kantosky is the COO of the International Institute of Kentucky. He must have told the BGN reporter that they are choosing which refugees come to which city by a weekly lottery system in Washington, DC. Photo at Linked In: https://www.linkedin.com/in/chris-kantosky-b12445115

Here is one more piece of news to support what I have been saying for years.   And, remember as you read this that Bowling Green is Senator Rand Paul’s home town.

At one time, Paul was questioning the UN/US State Dept. Refugee Admissions Program.  That was in the wake of the arrests and ultimate conviction of two Iraqi refugees found to be terrorists living and working there (so much for security screening!). He is nowhere to be seen on the issue now.

I want to urge all of you, as you to do your research on your refugee overloaded city (or city about to become a ‘welcoming’ city), to research the campaign contributions of your elected officials right down to the local mayor and council level.  Find out their business connections and expose them!

And, don’t allow yourselves to get bogged down by the open borders Left trying to tell you that the driver for the seeding of your towns with diversity is a humanitarian desire to help the downtrodden of the world (tell them to help our own poor people first!).

From the Bowling Green Daily News (hat tip: Robin).  What! Kentucky has no more Americans who want jobs?

You should know that the International Center is a subcontractor of USCRI, that is the same federal contractor working in Twin Falls, Idaho and wishing to start an office in Rutland, VT and Reno, NV.

Resettled refugees are being sought at a greater frequency to fill local jobs, Chris Kantosky, chief operations officer of The International Center of Kentucky told the Barren River Area Development District board on Wednesday.

“There are 650 open manufacturing jobs in Warren County alone,” Kantosky said. The International Center also has worked to help fill a 75-job need in Barren County, and within two weeks 50 of the jobs were filled by refugees, he said.

“They are coming to Bowling Green and Warren County because we have jobs, a great educational system, a low cost of living, the community is safe and there is an opportunity to excel,” said Kantosky, who has been working with refugees for the past 26 years.

[….]

A one-time allocation of $1,125 federal funds per refugee, or about $5,600 for a family, is used to finance resettlement logistics. The money needs to be spent in about 30 days to buy everything from a clock radio to beds, furniture and food to outfit the apartment selected for the refugees to stay. By the time the individuals reach the Nashville International Airport from their home country, they are a car ride away from a hot meal in their new home.

What Mr. Kantosky isn’t telling you in the previous paragraph is that his agency gets approximately another $1000 per head to spend on themselves!

Now this is incredible.  I knew the contractors sat around in DC and divvied up the refugees as they came in (LOL! I envision many squabbles as they bid for bodies! But, has it come to this—a lottery!).  So where are the real reporters at places like the New York Times and Washington Post—why aren’t you demanding entry to the weekly lottery meeting!  I would like to know if any industry lobbyists are in those weekly meetings!

Bowling Green News continues:

Refugee resettlement locations are determined by a weekly lottery in the nation’s capital. “A refugee can only go back to their home country if their country is re-stabilized,” Kantosky said.

And, about this bit about not going home—many refugees who get here are unhappy and want to go home, but they are trapped because most can’t afford the airfare home.  This is the part of this program that makes many of us think about slave labor!

Click here to see our extensive archive on Bowling Green and the many problems they have had there over the years in addition to the Islamic terror scare a few years ago.  And, mosques are springing up everywhere to accommodate the growing Muslim refugee population.

***Most refugees are on welfare of some sort which makes anyone who employs them eligible for the federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit.  An employer thus has a greater incentive to hire a refugee than some American who is struggling, but doesn’t want to be on welfare (including food stamps).  A refugee’s salary is subsidized by the US taxpayer, while an average American’s job isn’t.  I’ve wondered if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was somehow involved in creating this system.

Any ambitious researchers out there who would like to dig deeper into this program which incentivizes hiring refugees and write a guest post, let me know!  refugeewatcher@gmail.com

Polls: Most Americans do not want Obama to bring in Syrians and distribute them around the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2016

Donald Trump must continue to hammer this issue—the American people do not want to pay for, or worry about their security as the Obama Administration is nearly its goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian Muslims to the US by September 30th.

And, for those of you who think that will be it, it won’t be as Obama and Hillary are gearing up to make 2017 an even bigger year for bringing the third world to your town.

Before I give you this latest poll news, I need to make sure you all understand something that even I wasn’t fully wrapping my mind around.  Although we write frequently about the 190 or so US resettlement offices (see list here), refugee placement is not restricted to the town where the contractor’s office is located, but in fact refugees are distributed in 100 mile radius circles around those offices and thus I will bet Syrians and other refugees (Somalis, Burmese Rohingya, Iraqis etc.) have been settled in thousands of American small towns over the years.

map Syrians this fiscal year

I just checked the US State Department data base (Refugee Processing Center) and see that 184 cities and towns (map: 38 states) have received Syrians in the last 11 months.

Here is the polling information from the World Tribune:

Americans are overwhelmingly against accepting a wave of Syrian refugees into the country, a new poll found.

Just 36 percent of U.S. voters support allowing the refugees to enter, according to a Chicago Council on Global Affairs poll released on Aug. 15.

The Obama administration is close to reaching its goal of allowing 10,000 Syrian refugees into the U.S. by the end of September.

Anne Richard, assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, said earlier this month that 8,000 Syrians have already been re-settled.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has pledged to increase the number of Syrian refugees coming to the U.S.

Hillary Clinton: U.S. should take 65,000 Syrian refugees

The media has been mum about it, but a wise Trump campaign should find Hillary’s declaration last fall on Face the Nation and play it over and over again!

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Sunday that the United States should accept 65,000 refugees from Syria to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis created by the war there.

Here is my post on what she said.  She was following the lead of the United Nations and the Senate Jihad Caucus (pushed by the resettlement contractors!) which called for 65,000 before Obama leaves  office.  See my June 2015 explanation (below) about where Hillary got the number 65,000! By the way, look for Obama’s even larger number at the UN pow wow in September.

My message is more urgent today than it was in June 2015!

Welcoming refugees? Will lawyers descend on your school system next?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 17, 2016

Update August 19: “Not the school I deserve,” said refugee. Here.

This is a lesson for every town contemplating becoming a “welcoming” refugee resettlement site. 

Are you listening Rutland, VT, Aberdeen, SD, Reno, NV, Missoula, MT, Charleston, WV and Fayetteville, Arkansas?

This news comes to us from “welcoming” Lancaster, PA (btw, it is in Lancaster that I first heard citizens, who asked questions about refugee impact, described as being in “pockets of resistance!”)

Lancaster logo

“Enriching us all” or is it bankrupting us all?

Apparently the Lancaster school system sought to deal with older, non-English speaking, refugees by placing them in an alternative school system, but lawyers for the ACLU and others will have none of it.  So now the school district there will be in court all week defending their decision at taxpayer expense.

And, so much for your American kids getting a good education!

From Newsworks:

As many as 700 refugees are resettled each year in Lancaster, a high number for the city’s population.  [This will happen to your town! Once they get a foothold the original 50 or 100 become 200, 500, 700 in one year!—ed]

Four of them are spending today in court, where they’ll testify in a lawsuit against the School District of Lancaster.

The suit alleges the district’s breaking the law by refusing to admit older teen refugees or automatically diverting them to an accelerated credit program. There, the case claims, they get an education inferior to what’s available at the local public high school (particularly when it comes to English language instruction.)

But attorney Sharon O’Donnell, who’s representing the school, says “the bottom line is whether the court can tell the [Lancaster] school board where to place students.”

Pennsylvania school code says residents between 6 and 21 years old are entitled to a free public education. At least one international treaty, the U.N.’s 1951 Refugee Convention, requires refugees to get the same public education as residents of countries where they’re resettled. [So we are being told that a UN treaty could govern our local school board decisions!—ed]

The lawsuit also alleges civil rights and federal Equal Educational Opportunities Act violations by the school, which O’Donnell refuted in recent court filings.

[….]

The lawsuit in Pennsylvania is similar to others filed in Florida and settled in New York this spring, and comes as refugee resettlement is expected to continue to rise.

[….]

The lawsuit’s being brought by a total of six student refugees, represented by a team of lawyers. Aside from Rothschild, they’re from the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia-based Education Law Center.

This is all the more reason to tell your Congressmen and Senators NO! when Obama wants more tax dollars next month.

Refugee industry goes in to high gear for Obama/UN big show; what do you do?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 17, 2016

Yesterday we told you about the August 28th rally (the warm-up act) in Washington, DC to gin up media for the refugee industry as it pushes into the critical month of September and wants to be sure the money will be flowing their way to distribute larger than ever numbers of impoverished and questionably vetted refugees to your towns and cities.

(For new readers, the resettlement contractors*** are paid by the head to seed refugees, chosen by the UN, throughout America! They can’t do their work without YOUR money!)

Deciding your town’s future at the United Nations!

Also, in September, Obama will send his last ‘determination’ to Congress on how many refugees we will take in FY2017.

Congress can decide to fund those numbers or not!

We can certainly blame lame duck Obama, but the real pressure must be on your Members of Congress!

The big propaganda show itself will occur at the United Nations on September 19th and 20th.

Here is the information released by the United Nations:

The UN General Assembly will host a high-level summit to address large movements of refugees and migrants, with the aim of bringing countries together behind a more humane and coordinated approach.

This is the first time the General Assembly has called for a summit at the Heads of State and Government level on large movements of refugees and migrants and it is a historic opportunity to come up with a blueprint for a better international response. It is a watershed moment to strengthen governance of international migration and a unique opportunity for creating a more responsible, predictable system for responding to large movements of refugees and migrants.

When and where?

It will be an all day event on Monday 19 September 2016 at the UNHQ in New York.

[….]

Is there a related event on 20 September 2016?

Also on the margins of the General Assembly, on 20 September 2016, the United States President Obama is hosting the Leaders’ Summit on Refugees, alongside co-hosts Canada, Ethiopia, Germany, Jordan, Mexico and Sweden, which will appeal to governments to pledge significant new commitments on refugees. While the Leaders’ Summit will focus on refugees, not migrants, the General Assembly High-Level Summit will address large movements of both. The two events will complement one another.

Will you let the United Nations change your American towns?

For all of you working hard to save your towns (and I’ve met many of you on my swing through the heartland over the last month), this is it!  You have to direct all of your efforts from now and through September at pounding Congress on this issue.  Use the problems you are having where you live as the inspiration and the catalyst for your anger.

Your member is still at home until after Labor Day (see calendar).  Find them in their districts! Tell them what you think! Tell your Senators too!

And, while you are directing your community organizing (yes, you are community organizers!) to halt all of the funding for the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program, you must work to get Hillary defeated.

This UN stunt is geared to help Hillary! Obama and the United Nations are counting on a Clinton presidency to continue (and expand!) the work they are beginning on August 28th!

Note to all I talked to in my travels, you still need to work locally to regain control at your local elected official level and get rid of some the mayors who have been ‘captured,’ but at this moment there is only one major goal…

….don’t let Congress fund Obama’s 2017 resettlement goal which surely will come in at the 100,000 to 200,000 level.

***These are the federal resettlement contractors. Is your church working with the UN and being paid with taxpayer dollars to bring poverty and poorly screened refugees to your town? Time to speak up on Sundays (by the way, evangelicals are not off the hook because World Relief is an evangelical organization!)  So-called religious charities are in red.
