Germans welcome their invaders, say Europe belongs to everyone!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 23, 2015

Invasion of Europe news…..


Germany Word Refugee Day 2

Thousands of NO Borders activists marched in Berlin on Saturday. Story and photos here:


On World Refugee Day this past Saturday, demonstrators in Berlin and across Europe welcomed the Mediterranean boat people arriving by the tens of thousands from Libya and elsewhere in North Africa and the Middle East.  Come on in!  We think all borders should be erased!  Readers, the driving force behind everything we are seeing, including the UN’s pressure on America to take 65,000 Syrians, is the movement to create one big happy (socialist!)  borderless world!


Berlin (AFP) – Some 1,800 people took to the streets of Berlin on Saturday to express their solidarity with migrants seeking refuge in Europe and against austerity measures in debt-ridden Greece, local police told AFP.

In a demonstration held on World Refugee Day by German opposition parties Die Linke (The Left) and Gruenen (The Greens), as well as several other leftist groups, protesters chanted: “No frontiers, no nations, stop deportation!”

“Say it loud, say it clear, refugees are welcome here,” cried others.


“We are here to save our Europe, which includes immigrants, refugees and Greece. Europe must belong to everyone, not just to the Germans and the banks,” said Luciano Colletta, a 66-year-old pensioner, who stood along with the other protesters in front of the Colosseum.

Leftist No Borders agitators pressure the UK

Meanwhile pressure continues on the UK which has so far steadfastly said NO to large numbers of Syrian refugees.

I had to laugh when I saw this article with a graphic showing that Germany, Canada and Australia have agreed to take many more Syrians than the Brits (agreed to take is the operative phrase because they haven’t arrived in those countries in those numbers yet!).

Conspicuously absent from the graph, however, is the US which has taken less than 1,000.  I guess the British No Borders crowd and their media lackeys don’t want the average UK citizen to know they are not alone in their reluctance to take in Syrians.

WND: Mayors in cahoots with Obama to sign up more immigrant voters

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 22, 2015

Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily has another good one today!

Regular readers know that Hohmann has been the leading reporter in the nation following and reporting on the Refugee Resettlement Program of the UN/US State Department as well as Obama’s New Americans strategy to diversify your towns and cities using the heavy hand of the federal government before he leaves office!

Boise, Idaho mayor Dave Bieter has made Boise a “Welcoming America” member city.

By the way, I keep hearing from readers across the country that they are seeing low income housing being planned in their otherwise middle class towns—this is all part of the Obama administration plan (using your tax dollars) to set your towns up for waves of new Democrat-voting migrants even after Obama has left office!

Here is Hohmann’s latest:

President Obama’s making a big push in the final months of his presidency to convert huge numbers of recent immigrants and refugees into “new Americans,” and the mayors of the nation’s cities are lining up to help him accomplish his goal.

They talk about the need for greater “diversity” and the economic benefits that immigrants bring.

But critics say the program is not as much about creating “new Americans” as it is about creating new “voters” who will help re-elect Democrats and institutionalize Obama’s policies on immigration, education and healthcare for years to come.

Obama’s White House Task Force on New Americans is leading the charge, signing up mayors in major cities to further the goal of encouraging recent immigrants and refugees to go through the process of becoming a citizen.

The mayors of New York and Boston have become the latest to join Obama’s diversity program.

Please keep reading, it is a tutorial on what is happening to many of you!  (Including you Idahoans!)

Be sure to read about the role ‘Welcoming America’ is playing.   We first heard about them here in 2013 when the Office of Refugee Resettlement used your tax dollars to give them a grant to tamp down any “resistance” from you (middle class tax-paying patriotic Americans)—you who might put up resistance when your “welcoming” mayor says “come on in” we have ‘services’ and low income housing for New Americans!

Endnote:  I’m still waiting for a wannabe blogger to write a blog and call it ‘Welcoming America Watch!’  There is no greater service you could provide America than taking an hour or so every day to track and report on these change-agents’ activities!  See “big smooch” from Obama to ‘Welcoming America’ founder David Lubell, here.

CATO immigration “specialist:” Bring Syrian refugees in, but cut off their welfare

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 21, 2015

If any of you are Libertarians and think the CATO Institute is the last word on libertarian good sense, you may not know that crazy CATO is for a free flow of immigrants around the world.   Here Alex Nowrasteh,  CATO immigration specialist, makes an emotional pitch to bring in Syrian refugees, but remembering that he is a Libertarian, near the end of his Op-ED in The Hill, says, but of course no welfare for them.


Alex Nowrasteh, a Libertarian thinker in Washington: We didn’t save enough Jews in WWII, so now we have to bring in Syrians.

The Hill gave him space to say that we should open our borders to Syrians.  He threw out some tired old bromides and the usual Leftist guilt-tripping about previous refugees (he must be reading the Left’s open borders screeds).

Then finally he suggests it will be fine, bring them in, but don’t let them get welfare (when pigs fly!).  Where has he been?

The whole refugee resettlement apparatus in the US right now is built around our ever-expanding welfare system.  Indeed the primary job of federal refugee resettlement contractors is to get refugees firmly attached to the federal welfare teat!   From cash assistance, to food stamps, to subsidized housing and Medicaid, the non-profit government contractor’s job is to get them their “services” within the first three months of their arrival.

Clearly Mr. Nowrasteh doesn’t have a clue about the intricate web of interdependency between refugees, their contractors and government agencies and programs and the political power behind the refugee program.  Maybe he should read RRW occasionally.

Twenty paragraphs in to a twenty-two paragraph Op-Ed he says something we could support. 

Why didn’t he say it earlier? It is almost as if he says, ‘Oopsy’ I’m a libertarian, I better say something libertarian-like!

Most readers won’t even get this far!  In fact, most readers will be left (dabbing their eyes with tissues) after his emotional appeals of the first three-quarters of his piece.  I didn’t know libertarians are into emotional appeals and sob-stories!

Most on the Hill will say, Yes! CATO supports the Syrian resettlement.

Maybe the headline in the The Hill should have been something like this:  ‘Welfare should be disallowed for refugees, then we can talk about bringing in Syrians.‘  I would have disagreed with that too (about bringing in the Syrians), but at least it would have been an intellectually honest libertarian thing to say.

So, I think they call this burying the lead!   As almost an afterthought, Nowrasteh finally says in paragraph twenty:

Americans shouldn’t be forced to foot the bill!  Churches and charities should do it!

American taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to foot the bill. Refugees have access to some means-tested welfare benefits before other immigrants do; that should end. Churches, charities and mutual aid associations should fulfill that responsibility.

Is CATO on the Hill actively lobbying for refugees to be disallowed welfare, or like way too many Washington ‘think tank’ experts are they just running their mouths while collecting big salaries for being supposedly ‘smart’ people?

Point me to a bill that CATO supports to disallow refugees to access welfare and I will apologize for calling them crazy!

Something smells in Twin Falls, Idaho; what is going on with the refugee program there?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 20, 2015

Update June 21:  Now it’s meatpackers to Boise, guess these big industries need cheap immigrant labor!

Some ideas on what concerned citizens must do to save Idaho are below!

Readers, yesterday I received a letter from an attorney telling me I had to take down the snips I had posted from a publication ( from Twin Falls, Idaho.  The two posts are here and here.

In place of the snips I had used to illustrate my posts, I posted this:

Editor: The article has been removed at the request of an attorney for the newspaper which is clearly unhappy with any of their articles being partially posted here at RRW.

This is just further demonstration of how local newspapers are attempting to silence critics presumably because they are in the pockets of the federal government, the refugee contractors and the big businesses that need this cheap immigrant labor. Who is driving the cheap labor needs in Twin Falls?

You should know that the standard requirement of bloggers is that they may snip a modest portion of a published story and then attribute it (with links) to the original source (which I did).  The letter from the attorney (Benjamin J. Cluff, Coleman, Ritchie & Cluff) for The Times-News and was thus a pretty heavy-handed way to silence a critic of the Refugee Resettlement Program of the UN/US State Department’s distribution of third worlders to US towns and cities like Twin Falls, ID.

CSI refugees

College of Southern Idaho Refugee Programs: Changing America by changing the people!

Now my interest has been piqued! 

I thought Twin Falls was just one more small city with do-gooders driving the resettlement of refugees.  Now I don’t think so.

Someone is driving the resettlement in Twin Falls.  Is it some huge industry in need of cheap labor like Chobani, the yogurt maker who built the world’s largest yogurt plant there in 2012? 

Chobani’s Turkish founder, Hamdi Ulukaya, is a huge ‘friend’ of refugees and is pouring a vast fortune into helping refugees (hopefully worldwide and not promoting their shipment to America!).  According to wikipedia:

“On December 17, 2012 Chobani opened one of the world’s largest yogurt-processing plants in Twin Falls, Idaho.”

We know from years of writing about it that meatpackers work with resettlement contractors to get them cheap labor, do yogurt makers do the same?

Or, is it a plan being driven by the White House to colonize rural Idaho with ‘diversity’ (or both?). Note that new mosques are popping up!   I don’t know the answer yet, but I want Idaho citizen activists to continue digging!  Who wants to change Twin Falls?  Find out!

I can tell you what it is not!  It is not a warm and fuzzy humanitarian desire to give the good life to thousands of impoverished third worlders in lovely Idaho.   That is just the cover for a much more diabolical plan.  Local ‘church’ people and others thinking they are doing good works are being used.

What really got my interest this morning, prompting me to write this post, is that one of those two posts cited by the heavy-handed lawyer letter, this one, has gone through the roof overnight as hundreds of readers are clicking on it.  Why?

So what is next? 

Concerned citizens in Southern Idaho who want to maintain their Idaho (American!) culture must now get the facts, publicize them, and step up their community organizing.   Here are some of my recommendations in a list that is by no means meant to be all-inclusive:

* First, find out what big industry (industries?) in need of cheap immigrant labor is driving the resettlement?

* Then you must learn everything you can about the resettlement of refugees in Idaho (a Wilson-Fish state).  Go here to your state coordinator’s website.  Ask Director Jan Reeves for your state plan (Reeves is an Obama ‘champion of change’).

* Then find out who is responsible for resettling the refugees, not just in Twin Falls but throughout the state of Idaho.  You know who it is in Twin Falls.  It is the College of Southern Idaho Refugee Programs, here.

Note that they are an affiliate of the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) which means they get their federal payola through USCRI and USCRI sends the refugees to them (after selecting them with the US State Department).  We have written many posts on USCRI and its leader Lavinia Limon who was Clinton’s director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement and as such represents the perfect example of the government/contractor revolving door.  Last I looked the private non-profit USCRI was 99% funded by the US taxpayer.

I could not find a Form990 for the CSI Refugee Programs.  You need to dig out their financial docs!

* Next ask the CSI Refugee Programs for its FY2015 Abstract.   The R & P Abstracts are the documents sent by the subcontractor to its contractor and ultimately to the US State Department.  We have been told that all resettlement contractors have been instructed not to give them out!  Try anyway!

* Although your local government will say the refugee program is out of their hands, you must now pressure the mayor, the council or the county commission (not sure what the local government structure is in Idaho) to get involved and fess-up about what role they played in “welcoming” refugees to Twin Falls.  All local government officials are supposed to have been consulted every year.

* Find out if there is an upcoming “stakeholders” meeting somewhere in Twin Falls about now as the resettlement contractor is preparing its R & P Abstract for FY2016—how many refugees Twin Falls will get, from where, and what amenities the town has to offer the refugees.  For an example of a ‘stakeholder’ meeting see St. Cloud, MN yesterday, here.

* Someone in the community must publicize everything you find out either in a website or blog for others to learn from!  I can’t emphasize this enough! You clearly have biased reporting going on in the local mainstream media—The Times-News and  You must go around them with alternative media!

* Focus your grassroots campaign on two indisputable facts about refugee resettlement in America—it is secretive and costly!

More later, this is getting way too long!

Southern Poverty Law Center’s war on women!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 19, 2015

The filthy rich Southern Poverty Law Center announced its list of 12 women it claims are anti-sharia activists according to Judicial Watch blog yesterday in a post entitled, ‘SPLC Issues Hit List of U.S. Women Against Sharia Law.’

***Update*** The full report is here.

Mark Potok is one of the authors of the hit on twelve brave American women.

So this is what I would like to know, if any of these women are harmed (God forbid), could the Southern Poverty Law Center be sued and possibly charged with instigating a ‘hate’ crime? Just wondering…..

Here is JW:

The Obama-tied leftist group that helped a gunman commit an act of terrorism against a conservative organization has assembled a starter kit for Islamists to attack American women who refuse to comply with Sharia law, the authoritarian doctrine that inspires Islamists and their jihadism.

It’s the summer special from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an extremist nonprofit that lists conservative organizations that disagree with it on social issues on a catalogue of “hate groups.” A few years ago a gunman received a 25-year prison sentence for carrying out the politically-motivated shooting of the Family Research Council (FRC) headquarters after admitting that he learned about the FRC from the SPLC “hate map.” Prosecutors called it an act of terrorism and recommended a 45-year sentence.

Now the SPLC, which has conducted diversity training for the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ), is targeting female bloggers, activists and television personalities who refuse to comply with Sharia law which is rooted in the Quran.

There is more, continue reading here.  I wonder how much the SPLC gets from CAIR?

Readers will remember that last year we learned about a Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society report in which HIAS said it was bringing in the SPLC to investigate anyone who is involved with pushing back against the refugee resettlement program, here.  Haven’t seen any sign of them yet!

Comments worth noting: Trolls just want to troll!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 18, 2015

Some of our regular readers might have noticed that we have a troll (‘314maker’) who has arrived in the last few days to criticize RRW and you.

Fat-Green-TrollI’m really o.k. with criticism and with trolls, but just wish one of them would one day take me up on my offer to write a guest column with reasoned arguments about why he/she believes that America should invite the world to come live here.

Here is ‘314maker’ trying to make the point that we don’t take all the refugees the UN has selected for us.


Seems like my comment was deleted. Again, just because a refugee is referred to the U.S. Program, does not mean the case will be accepted, nor does it mean the case will be given refugee status by USG officials.

Here is what I said in response to that comment from ‘314 maker’ yesterday (this is at our post on Idaho).


As long as you don’t swear or threaten anyone personally I don’t delete comments. But, also, remember I don’t sit at the computer all day waiting for comments to roll in. This is a reminder to everyone, I post them when I have time in the middle of my otherwise busy life.

314maker, we have many times over the years reported that the UN specifically says it has chosen refugees for us. The UNHCR tells us they do!

But, since you are here, I would like to offer you the opportunity to write a guest post for us and explain why America has to take the large number of refugees we now take, and we want a logical explanation, with no mention of “nation of immigrants” and no appeal to religion, no name-calling, just simply explain why it is in our interest to admit large numbers of impoverished people to our cities and towns, and why it isn’t enough to take care of American poor first.

And, most of all we would really like to know if even you have a limit. Is there some number that is simply too many? Or, would you just erase all of our borders and invite anyone from anywhere to live here?

This is a serious offer of an opportunity to reach a lot of people with a logical reason why you are in support of mass immigration.

He/she has refused my offer.  And, by the way, we are under no obligation to be fair and balanced.  The Hard Left/Open Borders crowd is never fair and balanced!


Ann – I am not interested in writing a guest post and kindly request that you do not create one based on my comments. Your blog is highly editorialized (your prerogative) and routinely twists facts to support a certain mindset – a mindset which I want no part of, even in an attempt to correct. I believe in the process of refugee resettlement and I do not feel the need to justify this belief to you or your readers. I will, however, continue to read your blog and provide comments as I find your take on things quite entertaining.

He/she wants to keep commenting, but I suggested perhaps he/she could write his/her own blog and call it Refugee Resettlement Watch Watch! (but that would mean having to do some work!).


I thought so…easy to comment critically, less easy to logically explain your point of view. Hey, here is an idea, rather than me giving you a platform to attack on a daily basis, why don’t you do the hard work of writing a blog—Call it Refugee Resettlement Watch Watch and I will prominently link it and promote it!

Editor’s note:  For our many new readers, ‘Comments worth noting’ is a category in which we archive interesting comments! It is also where we archive guest columns like the one we hoped ‘314maker’ would write.

June 20th is World Refugee (propaganda) Day: ask Congress for more $$$ and register refugees to vote!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 18, 2015

In 2000, the United Nations declared June 20th World Refugee Day according to wikipedia, here.

You probably are already seeing local news media scrambling to cover local events designed to give you a warm and fuzzy feeling about ‘welcoming’ more refugees to your communities.

On 4 December 2000, the United Nations General Assembly in Resolution 55/76 decided that, from 2001, 20 June would be celebrated as World Refugee Day. In this resolution, the General Assembly noted that 2001 marked the 50th anniversary of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.

World Refugee Day

Let’s lobby Congress!

Refugee Council USA (RCUSA),  the lobbying arm for UN/US State Department resettlement contractors and other groups working to open our borders and diversify your communities has gone one step farther and declared the week of June 27th to July 2 as National Refugee Advocacy Week and have prepared an entire ‘Advocacy Toolkit’ for anyone wishing to take action to lobby for more refugees and more money for the ‘humanitarians’ working in your towns and cities.’

We told you about RCUSA here as they were behind getting the Senate Jihad Caucus to send a letter to Obama urging him to open our doors wide to 65,000 Syrian (mostly Muslim refugees) before he leaves office.

Here are some of the things they want open borders advocates to do:

* Invite a policymaker to a World Refugee Day event in your area.

* Organize an in-district meeting with your members of Congress. Your Senators and Representatives will be in their local offices during National Refugee Advocacy Week, making it a great opportunity to meet with them to discuss important refugee policy and funding issues. Introduce them to a refugee!

* Call Congress to support refugee funding and legislation – and get others to join you.

* Write a letter to your members of Congress encouraging support for refugees.

And last but not least—REGISTER VOTERS!

* Promote Civic Engagement and Register New Voters for refugees who are naturalized citizens. See this civic engagement resource from 2014 developed by Church World Service for more information.

Readers, don’t get discouraged, but know that these are well-funded, Leftwing community organizers who have been working for years to change America by changing the people!  And, it didn’t start with Obama!

By the way, as I write this, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service has refugees on Capitol Hill lobbying for them.

Be sure to get and read, James Simpson’s ‘Red-Green Axis: working to erase America’ and learn about the players and where their funding comes from!

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:

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?

For more on the ‘Invasion of Europe,’ click here.

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.
