Church World Service head honcho sucking up to the NYT and Chobani Yogurt tycoon

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 12, 2016

We told you recently that the NY Times has gone to bat for Hamdi Ulukaya who is changing Twin Falls, Idaho with a refugee worker flow for his world’s largest yogurt plant there. As I said yesterday, some of the big players in the UN/US refugee program are giant corporations, some of them foreign-owned, that want CHEAP labor.

Think about it! If companies like Chobani didn’t have the steady supply of immigrant/refugee labor they might have to hire American workers and pay them better wages!

Since I’ve been writing about Church World Service this morning, I thought you might like to see what CWS’s highly paid CEO is saying to the NYT.  Is he looking for a little moola from Hamdi?

Here:

Re “For Standing Up, Scorn” (Business Day, Nov. 1):

On behalf of CWS, a global humanitarian organization and refugee resettlement agency, I commend Chobani’s founder, Hamdi Ulukaya, for making the concerted effort to employ more refugees at his yogurt company. In a time of widespread xenophobia and hateful rhetoric, his compassion, boldness and good entrepreneurial sense are especially uplifting.

CWS CEO Rev. John McCullough being arrested in Washington, DC protesting in support of Obama’s executive amnesty. Photo and story here: http://njfon.org/2015/04/08/faith-groups-challenge-fifth-circuit-court-on-presidents-immigration-actions/ McCullough pulls down an annual salary of over $300,000 a year from his CWS work and from “related organizations.” Page 13- 14 http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2015/134/080/2015-134080201-0c44e710-9.pdf

Through his own employment practices, he helps demonstrate that refugees are hardworking, productive members of our society, not the economic burden some suggest.

Mr. Ulukaya, an immigrant from Turkey, also warrants our praise for establishing a foundation that assists migrants, traveling to Greece to witness the refugee crisis firsthand and committing to give away most of his fortune to help refugees.

Mr. Ulukaya illustrates tangibly what’s right about our country: longstanding values of hospitality, diversity and industry.

About the photo on McCullough’s arrest: Why would a non-profit group, that is being paid millions of tax dollars each year to help legal refugees get established and find jobs in the US, be out protesting on behalf of illegal aliens who will in turn (if granted amnesty) be in direct competition with refugees for jobs?  I have never understood the sense of this.

The only logical explanation is that CWS and McCullough are out to change America by changing the people no matter how they have to do it!

Never forget! 15 years after 9/11

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 11, 2016

The moment when everything changed for America and the world.

For many years (on 9/11) I’ve made a point of visiting Pamela Geller (here in 2010) to watch a heartbreaking and powerful presentation of what happened on that horrible day (the video may take a few minutes to load).

The first plane.

 

And by this time on that morning 15 years ago, we all knew that Islamic terrorists had declared war on the civilized world.

The second plane. God rest their souls.

World trade center 911

September 11, 2001: The first plane hit the north tower at 8:46 a.m. The second one struck at 9:03 a.m.

 

Watch and weep….

In 2010, Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs posted a heart wrenching Remembrance of 9/11.  I urge all of you to take a few minutes to remember those who lost their lives that day and pray for America now.   Click here (the presentation will take a few seconds to load).

Note to readers: On this 9/11 we are in Washington

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 11, 2014

 

On the anniversary of the terrible assault on our country by Islamic terrorists, I’m in Washington DC, but will try to post a few items in between briefings and meetings.   Most of the friends I am with today are here because of that first 9/11.

Please take a few minutes this morning to see this powerful presentation that Pamela Geller published a few years ago in remembrance of that awful day.  Weep and never forget.

CASA de Maryland witnesses violence and murder involving their people

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 8, 2014

There goes the neighborhood.

CASA de Maryland’s headquarters. Be sure to read all about the Illegal’s ACORN: http://www.aim.org/special-report/casa-de-maryland-the-illegal-immigrants-acorn/

 

Update:  A reader reports that according to court documents, Vargas-Salguero has a criminal record and is identified as: WHITE, CAUCASIAN, ASIATIC INDIAN, ARAB (whatever that is!).  No mention of immigration status.

The Washington Post reports that a Guatemalan regular at CASA de Maryland (the very rich and powerful government-funded advocacy and support group for illegal aliens in Maryland) was murdered on the steps of CASA’s luxurious mansion by another man who also appears to be of Hispanic (illegal?) origin. (There is no mention of the arrested man’s nationality or legal status.)  See update above.

Although they are mostly advocates for illegals we have have written about CASA at RRW on several previous occasions (there are some of those posts in this archive).

From the Washington Post:

Miguel Angel Barillas worked as a landscaper for two years after coming to the United States from Guatemala to make a better life for his family back home, including a wife, two children and a mother with cancer.

Despite the tiring labor, he regularly ended his days at the headquarters of Casa de Maryland, where the free WiFi allowed him to sit on the steps and use his cellphone to Skype with his family.

Prince George’s County Police said they found Barillas’s unconscious body early Wednesday on the steps of Casa de Maryland in Langley Park. The 32-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. The motive: cellphone theft.

Police said Saturday that they have arrested Mynor Vargas-Salguero, 25, of the 7900 block of Riggs Road in Langley Park and charged him with first-degree murder and armed robbery. They said that Vargas-Salguero allegedly stabbed Barillas and then took his cellphone.

Vargas-Salguero is in custody.

[….]

A spokesman for Casa de Maryland, the state’s largest community organization serving Latino families, said the incident has rocked the staff and families who rely on the organization for help. The group held a candlelight vigil Wednesday to remember Barillas and call for an end to violence.

“I would see him every day,” said Robert Asprilla, a lead organizer for Casa de Maryland who spent a lot of time with Barillas. “He worked until 6 p.m., and then he would get off, eat his meal and then come to Casa headquarters, where he sat outside to call his family. . . . He was killed right where he was every day.”

CASA calls for an end to violence and more community (taxpayer-funded?) cameras and policing:

Barillas lived in a large apartment complex near the Casa de Maryland headquarters. Although there are cameras on the building, security is inadequate, Asprilla said. “The community is asking for more cameras on every building. We have cameras at Casa, but we need more. We also need more community policing.”

By the way, CASA de Maryland was born out of the ‘sanctuary movement‘ that saw churches illegally moving Central Americans into America in the early 1980’s.

Would someone let me know if you see an update with more details about the immigration status of the alleged killer.

Montgomery Co. MD will host about 50 new unaccompanied alien teens this year (so far)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 23, 2014

If you want to know where the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ have gone, check with two local agencies—the local department of education and the health department.

There is nothing especially new or surprising in this report from the Gazette unless you live in long-time ‘welcoming’ Montgomery County, Maryland (I once did), but it does say one new and interesting thing to me—the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement sent over 100 of the ‘children’ (really teenagers!) there in the previous school year.   I wonder how many taxpaying residents knew that?

School begins in Montgomery County on Monday.

Montgomery County executive Isiah Leggett (right) making guacamole with one of the most dangerous men in America, Obama Labor Secretary Thomas Perez. Leggett says it’s our moral duty to care for the alien children (and expand the voter base for my friend Tom!) http://www.gazette.net/article/20140730/NEWS/140739818/0/leggett-x2018-we-need-to-do-what-is-right-x2019&template=gazette

 From the Gazette:

Nearly 50 unaccompanied minors from Central America have been sent to Montgomery County Public Schools since July to attend classes this school year, Superintendent Joshua P. Starr said Thursday.

The 47 children from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras were directed to the county school system through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement, Starr said at the county school board’s Thursday meeting.

“We don’t know if the number’s going to go up,” he said.

Last school year, the refugee resettlement office sent 107 unaccompanied children to the school system. Most of the minors were high school students, Starr said.

Starr said system officials are aware that minors from Central America are also entering county schools through avenues other than the refugee resettlement office, such as through their families. He said school officials discussed the issue during the summer.

The issue goes beyond the school system for the county. Montgomery County Council members met with representatives from public agencies and nonprofits in late July to learn about the situation in Montgomery regarding the immigrant children in its communities.

Assessing their emotional needs!

The system is determining the students’ educational and social-emotional needs and working to address the situation with others, such as the county and nonprofits, he said.

All citizens of Montgomery County are not as eager as Leggett and Starr to welcome the mostly Central American teens:

School board Vice President Patricia O’Neill said at the meeting that, in her experiences talking with county residents, “a lot of people have been very concerned” about the unaccompanied children in county schools.

All of our coverage of the ‘unaccompanied minors’ surging across our southern border is here.

Update!  Just so you know!  Reader Julia sent us several links about TB in Montgomery Co. Maryland schools, the highest in the state due to the large immigrant population, here.

 

About the photo:  Blogging partner Judy has recently written two posts at Potomac Tea Party Report on Thomas Perez.  In my view he is next in line behind the man himself (Obama), and then Attorney General Eric Holder as one of the three most dangerous race-baiters in America.

See ‘Perez stirring up racial strife here and the follow-up post here from earlier this past week.

PTPR has an extensive archive on Perez, check it out by clicking here.

Last I heard Perez still lives in Montgomery County in that far-left mecca of Takoma Park.  Watch for it!  When the Obama Administration ends, Perez will be back and be a major political force in Maryland (if not nationally).  Is making guacamole with Leggett earlier this month a first step in his return?

Time to get out?

Get ready for it! Hollywood making a refugee resettlement movie

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2014

It will be a heartwarming story about a white girl (Reese Witherspoon) helping Sudanese refugee ‘Lost Boys’ making it in America.

The plucky white girl—-Reese Witherspoon

You gotta laugh sometimes!

Here one commenter (of several) sums it up this way!  (Hat tip: whuptdue)

J: White people helping po’ black people! Ain’t those white people got great big hearts?!

Thanks Hollywood.

Watch for the refugee contractors using the film for star-studded galas (fundraisers!).  “The Good Lie” will be out in theaters on October 3rd.

‘The Lie’ will surely get an Oscar nomination because turning it down would make Hollywood look racist!

See the trailer by clicking here.
