HIAS to hold rally for refugees on the Hill September 14th

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 19, 2017

HIAS is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, one of nine major federal refugee resettlement contractors*** working for the US State Department.

Their goal at the rally is to push for 75,000 refugees in the FY18 Presidential “determination” Trump will be submitting to Congress at about that time.  I don’t know what good a little rally will do, since I suspect the Trump Administration is close to choosing the CEILING number already.

Mark Hetfield, HIAS CEO, makes a cool $358,718 (doing well by doing good) and has been organizing against Trump from the beginning. HIAS led the pro-Muslim lawsuit against the so-called ‘travel ban.’ See my huge archive on HIAS by going here: https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/?s=HIAS

This time last year, groups, including HIAS, were pushing Obama to set a CEILING of 200,000, so they must be figuring the very best they can get to maintain their payments from you (the taxpayers), and not see their budgets go to hell, is 75,000. Anywhere from 50,000 to 75,000 would help them weather the Trump Admin.

(For perspective, know that 75,000 is at least 10,000 HIGHER than the average for the last ten years.)

FY18 determination should be zero!

Before I get to the details of the rally, know that I believe the only way the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) will ever be reformed is for Trump to come in with a determination of ZERO for FY18 and tell Congress to trash or reform the whole program.

Nothing will get Congress off their butts otherwise!

If Trump comes in with 50,000 (as rumored), nothing will ever change.

Here is what  HIAS is sending to its supporters (hat tip: Cathy):

Friends,

Just wanted to let you know HIAS is planning a rally on Sept. 14 in support of the U.S. welcoming more refugees.

Per the Facebook event:

Join HIAS for a timely public action by the U.S. Capitol (exact location to be announced), where we will:

· Urge our leaders to bring at least 75,000 refugees to the US next year
· Tell refugees’ personal stories and raise greater awareness of the global refugee crisis through interactive trivia

Honey sticks?

· Hand out honey sticks and encourage others to take action for refugees

More information: https://www.facebook.com/events/1516509395058729

When you go to that facebook page be sure to see the video about the Presidential Determination.  And, note that as of this writing, 10 people plan to attend.

What you should do….

Don’t go to their rally because it could be a set-up. I would not be surprised to find out that they staged someone with a Nazi sign for media consumption.

Instead organize small groups of citizens in the coming weeks to visit your local member of Congress office/US Senate offices (no matter how liberal your representative) and tell them what you think about the UN/USRAP.

If they refuse to meet with you, go to their local offices and stand outside with signs for a few hours. Get photos and put on social media.  (Send me a photo and I will put it on RRW!)

Why are they pressuring Congress? Because HIAS thinks it can persuade the Congressional leaders (RINO pro-business Republicans) to oppose Trump should he come in with anything less than their dream number—75,000.  And, they know it is Congress that can appropriate more money for the program than Trump requests!

*** For new readers, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society is one of the Federal contractors/middlemen/employment agencies/propagandists/lobbyists/community organizers? paid by you to place refugees in your towns and cities listed below.  Under the nine major contractors are hundreds of subcontractors.

The contractors income is largely dependent on taxpayer dollars based on the number of refugees admitted to the US, but they also receive myriad grants to service their “New Americans.”

If you are a good-hearted soul and think refugee resettlement is all about humanitarianism, think again! Big businesses/global corporations depend on the free flow of cheap (some call it slave) labor.

By the way, it was HIAS fear of RRW (me) telling the truth, that sent them to the SPLC which ultimately named me a hate “group.” Never mind that there is no group, just one blogger!  See here.

The only way for real reform of how the US admits refugees is to remove these contractors/Leftwing activists/big business head hunters from the process.

Trump Admin reining-in Obama plan to get more Central American children to US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 16, 2017

Barack Obama illegally expanded the US Refugee Admissions Program a few years ago with his Central American Minors Program (CAM) which allowed Central American parents (from 3 countries) already in the US to get their kids to America by claiming they are refugees.  Obama said it would stem the illegal border invasion by ‘children.’  (Begging the question—so how could these parents simply leave their kids behind in the first place!)

Technically to be a refugee one must prove that one is persecuted for one of several reasons (religion, race, political persuasion, etc.) and that the person (the wannabe refugee) has left his country and would be harmed if returned. This is a very large hurdle for kids who are still in their country of origin and who are mostly economically challenged and not truly persecuted. So Obama bent the law further by allowing them to be paroled in to the US.

Trump has now dumped the parole option. If the kid can meet the refugee standards, presumably he/she can still get here.

From the San Diego Union-Tribune:

I was looking for an illustration for this story, and although not what the story is about, I found this incredible graph showing the cost to taxpayers for the surge in so-called “unaccompanied children” arriving illegally. The Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS) is responsible for them. Funny, the number of children crossing has declined while the cost keeps going up!

The Department of Homeland Security announced Tuesday it plans to shut down a program that offered some children and young adults from three Central Amercian countries a chance to lawfully immigrate to the U.S. to join their parents.

The decision will close down a portion of the Central American Minors program, established in 2014 under President Obama as a way to slow the stream of minors from strife-torn Central American countries.

The program allows unmarried youths under 21 years old from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala who had one parent who had lawful status in the U.S. to apply for refugee status, from their home country.

If the refugee status was denied. they could still be allowed into the U.S. under humanitarian parole, a way to legally be in the country that is not permanent but must be renewed periodically.

In an announcement to be published in the Federal Register today DHS said that it was terminating the humanitarian parole part of the CAM program.

Children and young adults can still seek refugee status , but if that is denied the parole option will no longer be available.

Lisa Frydman, Kids in Need of Defense, is Angelina Jolies organization. https://supportkind.org/about/leadership/

No reason was given for the change to the program, though the administration of President Donald Trump has made both choking off the flow of youths and families from Central America and tightening the legal immigration avenues a priority as part of its overall crackdown on immigration.

[….]

The program began in 2014, and in late 2016 it was expanded to allow additional family members to apply. But that expansion came late in the Obama presidency and because of the length of time it takes to review, investigate and approve an application no one has been admitted under the expanded rules.

Earlier this year the State Department said 11,000 people had applied to the program and 2,400 had been admitted. Another 2,700 individuals had been granted conditional parole but had not yet traveled to the U.S., according to Lisa Frydman with the Kids In Need Of Defense, an advocacy group in San Francisco.

The announcement said that those conditional approvals are now rescinded.

More here.

What might you do today?  Contact the White House and thank the president for doing this, and tell him to dump the whole program.  It is Congress’s job to write laws about who is and who isn’t a refugee.

By the way, much of the cost of the UACs in that graph above is because some of our usual contractors are being paid to care for the kids!

Will Starbucks test new refugee employees for TB (San Diego off the charts)?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 10, 2017

Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart called Starbucks to see if new refugee hires (see my post earlier) will be tested for TB as part of their employment screening. Surprise! No response!

From Breitbart:

Starbucks held a hiring event exclusively for refugees in El Cajon, California on Tuesday, part of its recently announced commitment to hire more than 10,000 refugees over the next five years.

See NBC7 report here about the event at the IRC office. Afghans, Syrians, and Somalis will be making your coffees. http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/california/Starbucks-Holds-Refugee-Hiring-Event-in-El-Cajon–439292923.html

El Cajon is located in San Diego County, where more than 20,000 refugees have have been resettled by the federal government in the past nine and a half years since the beginning of Fiscal Year 2008.

A 2013 study from a research team led by Dr. Timothy Rodwell, “an associate professor and physician in the Division of Global Health at UCSD [University of California at San Diego]” that “analyzed data from LTBI [latent tuberculosis infection] screening results of 4,280 refugees resettled in San Diego County between January 2010 and October 2012,” noted that “San Diego County, in California, is a leading refugee resettlement site, and it also has one of the highest rates of active TB in the country, with an incidence rate of 8.4 cases per 100 000 people in 2011.”

[….]

In other words, the incidence of active TB among the 4,280 refugees who were resettled in San Diego County between January 2010 and October 2012 was 327 per 100,000, more than 100 times greater than the incidence of active TB among the entire population of the United States in 2016.

Wow! I didn’t know this next bit!  Refugee contractors*** repeatedly tell the public that only those with latent TB are admitted to the US, but even if that is all we are admitting, that is still a risk for public health.

About four percent of the entire population of the United States tests positive for latent TB infection. Around 10 percent of those with LTBI will develop active TB at some point in their lives. The triggering mechanism to activate latent TB is not entirely understood, but high levels of stress, crowded living situations, poor public health practices, the presence of other diseases that lower the immune system, and behavioral conduct–such as smoking–appear to increase the chances of activation.

The 21.4 percent of refugees in the San Diego County study who tested positive for latent TB infection is about five times the national average.

Breitbart News contacted Starbucks to learn if their refugee hiring process will include mandatory testing for latent and active TB, but has not received a response.

Of course not!

Continue reading here.

See my ‘health issues’ category with hundreds of posts on refugee health problems including mental health issues.

For those who ask me all the time—what can I do?  Write to the White House and tell the Prez to tighten up admission requirements for migrants with communicable diseases.  If terrorism doesn’t scare you, TB might!

*That video.  After I watched the video linked under screen shot photo above, I kept getting an error message when attempting to open the link.  I hope that doesn’t happen for you. If it does, search for: ‘Starbucks holds hiring event for refugees’ and it should be listed for NBC.

And, I have a question for you:  As a volunteer are you given instructions on how to spot communicable diseases like TB in the refugee community you are helping? (See symptoms at left).

North Dakota: Summer study bill on cost of refugees to the state moving along

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 5, 2017

You know I get alerts each day on a variety of news involving refugees around the world.  Honestly I wasn’t planning to post on this news simply because it is frankly ho-hum.  But, for some reason the story of the North Dakota legislature’s effort to get to the bottom of the question of what it costs taxpayers to ‘welcome’ refugees, including many Somalis to the state, is being reported all over the place, so I thought I better mention it too!

Lutheran Social Service’s director, Shirley Dykshoorn, testified on Wednesday. Did she turn over important information like how many refugee children entered the school system and how many refugees use Medicaid or public housing?

Here is a report in the Bismark Tribune. If nothing else, the legislature’s effort has an important educational value.

Eight days after a racially fueled confrontation in a Fargo parking lot, North Dakota lawmakers began examining the state’s refugee resettlement program Wednesday.

The interim Human Services Committee’s study was prompted by legislation passed earlier this year that sought an examination of various aspects of resettlement, and the committee was tasked with reviewing the impact on workforce, government services, human services, education and health care.

The study bill received some backlash during the legislative session over concerns it singled out refugees, and didn’t account for the economic and cultural benefit they bring to their new communities. Committee Chairwoman Rep. Kathy Hogan, D-Fargo, said the panel should weigh the costs and benefits of resettlement, although some data may be hard to come by.

[….]

The number of refugees resettled in North Dakota every year has roughly tripled over the past decade, according to a Legislative Council memo. Last year, 558 refugees were resettled in the state, down from a recent high of 590 in 2014. In 2006, there were just 182.

Lutheran Social Services runs the show in ND:

The state Department of Human Services moved most refugee-related services to Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota under then-Gov. John Hoeven in July 2010, according to the Legislative Council. LSS is the only federally recognized and approved refugee resettlement organization in the state.

[….]

Wednesday’s meeting came about a week after a confrontation between three Somali-American women and a white woman at a Fargo Walmart parking lot, where a parking dispute descended into an anti-Muslim outburst that went viral. The two sides later made up after Fargo Police Chief David Todd brought them together.

Now, this is what I want to address—the community organizers!

“The state and the city asking for how much it costs to have refugees in the community, while a sensible question from the financial standpoint, it has negatively impacted our image in the community,” Hukun Abdullahi, the head of the Afro American Development Association, said at the Fargo City Commission’s meeting on Monday. “And it also has increased the number of hostile incidents against the refugees.” [Does he have data to back that up?—ed]

I think North Dakota’s Somali community track record with crimes and terrorism might have more to do with the public attitude toward refugees than some financial study!

More here.

This is how Leftwing community organizing works!

Here is Abdullahi apparently being guided by some white guy community organizers on what to say at that demonstration against a local TV station’s report (May 2016) on TB in the immigrant population in ND. http://www.inforum.com/news/4038410-refugees-elected-leaders-denounce-fargo-tv-station-bad-journalism

Here we have one Somali guy (some media reports put him at 21 years old), Hukun Abdullahi, who runs an organization incorporated in 2014 (basically a one man show it appears) that has virtually no funding and he becomes the spokesman for the “community.”

Most people on the conservative side of the political spectrum don’t do this, something George Soros has promoted—create many ‘groups,’ with a handful of people in each one, making it appear that there is widespread support for whatever it is they are promoting. 

And, of course, when it comes to Somalis and Muslims generally, there is always a victim theme to their organizing. Simply wanting more answers about the cost of the US Refugee Admissions Program makes one a racist, xenophobic Islamophobe!

Has anyone in the mainstream media ever looked into ‘groups’ like Abdullahi’s to see who is behind it, who helped him incorporate as a 501(c)3? Someone had to pay for the legal work to set up the ‘non-profit’ group.

When I attempted to search for background and a website (I didn’t find one) all I got was this, from Tax Exempt World.  

He has no requirement to file a Form 990 because he takes in less than $25,000 a year.

 

 

People ask me  all the time what they can do—-spend a few hours at your computer and research community organizing ‘groups’ like this one.

You can find their incorporation papers on line, their board members’ names, figure out who was behind creating the ‘organization.’ Research their finances, are any local businesses contributing? Any government funding?  And, most of all expose them as Leftwing community organizing grievance ‘groups,’ just so the average taxpaying citizen knows who is being promoted by the media as the voice of  the “community.”

I have written many posts on North Dakota, see here.

It was also on my 2016 summer roadtrip to see refugee controversy hotspots firsthand.

Trump Admin. will save a few bucks with smaller delegation to UN party in September

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 30, 2017

The United Nations holds its fall general assembly in September.  This is when ‘diplomats’ from all over the world come to New York for really what amounts to one big party on the town.

Ivanka had lunch on Friday with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres. Long time readers know Guterres as the former UN High Commissioner for Refugees who has been a leading proponent of moving Muslim refugees to the west. Did he lobby Ivanka on funding for the UN and for the US to ‘welcome’ more refugees? See my extensive archive on Guterres by going here: https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/?s=Antonio+Guterres

It is also a time when the UN has an opportunity to bash America (except for when Obama was prez).

Here we learn that to save money, the Trump Administration will be limiting the number of State Department and other DC bureaucrats who will be attending the confab on the taxpayers’ dime.

Not mentioned here, but just a reminder to readers, September will be the time of  Trump’s big test on the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program because according to the Kennedy/Carter Refugee Act of 1980, the President submits his annual ‘determination’ for the upcoming fiscal year to Congress.

Just about the time Trump speaks to the UN, he will have determined how many refugees will be admitted in the year beginning October 1 for FY18, and from what regions of the world they will come.

From AP at the Democrat Gazette:

The State Department plans to scale back its diplomatic presence at this year’s annual United Nations gathering of world leaders in September as a cost-saving initiative, according to four well-placed diplomatic sources. [Those leakers again?—ed]

For more than seven decades, American presidents from Harry Truman to Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama have attended the fall U.N. General Assembly general debate in New York to project their vision of American foreign policy to the world. They have been accompanied by a growing entourage of American diplomats, lawyers and technical experts who negotiate a wide range of issues, from nuclear arms treaties to climate change pacts and conflicts.

We are told that Obama and his entourage stayed at the New York Palace. Trump will go to his New Jersey golf club.

President Donald Trump does plan to address other world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly, and he will be accompanied by other top advisers, including his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his daughter Ivanka Trump, who stopped by U.N. headquarters Friday for a private lunch with U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

But the ranks of professional diplomats, aides and officials who attend the event to promote American policy priorities on a range of issues will be thinned out. For now, it remains unclear precisely how large of a cut in U.S. staff is envisioned, but two officials said the State Department is seeking to keep a ceiling down to about 300 people, including everyone from the president to support staff who schedule meetings and copy speeches.

[….]

The diplomatic culling is being enforced by Tillerson, the former ExxonMobil chief who has shown little interest in U.N. diplomacy during his first six months on the job. It comes at a time when the White House is seeking as much as a 30 percent cut in U.S. funding to the State Department and even deeper cuts in U.N. operations.

More here.

Will Donald Trump seek to cut the State Dept. budget by 30%? Will he cut even deeper in to the pile of money we give the UN? And, will he cut refugee numbers and seek to abolish or reform the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program? 

Answers will come in September!

Your job is to let the President know what you think on a daily basis!  Click here.

Don’t get too bogged down in legal wrangling on refugees….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 19, 2017

…..in September the rubber meets the road!

I haven’t the time or energy tonight to sort out the latest details of what the Supreme Court did today and I’m not losing sleep over it.  I’ll have updates tomorrow after I make an early run to the airport.

What happens to your towns and cities is up to Tillerson and Trump in the remaining weeks of the fiscal year, not the Supreme Court!

But, what I want to leave you with tonight is this….

Donald Trump’s State Department (with orders from the White House) can slow-walk refugee admissions for the next 2 months and 12 days.

After all, the Supreme Court has already gone way beyond its Constitutional authority and literally written a whole new program for admitting refugee relatives past the 50,000 CEILING, so Trump can just ignore them. He is within the law!

DHS can very carefully (VERY carefully) examine each potential refugee through the remainder of the fiscal year which ends September 30th.

So don’t get bogged down in minutia that ends with the fiscal year (when the EO ends), begin now to look at FY2018.

In September, the White House sends its ‘determination’ to Congress for CONSULTATION.  The determination that is being crafted at this very minute (with the contractors’*** help) will say how many refugees and from what parts of the world we will admit them.

You need to hammer the White House and your member of Congress and US Senators about what you think—NOW!  If you think it should be zero (or whatever), say so!

In September we will know if Donald Trump and Congress have any intention of reforming the monstrosity that the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program has become.

***Federal contractors/middlemen/lobbyists/community organizers paid by you to place refugees in your towns and cities. At this minute they are sending ‘abstracts’ to Washington which are their personal wish lists and plans for who will be ‘welcomed’ to your towns.

Because their income is largely dependent on taxpayer dollars based on the number of refugees admitted to the US, the only way for real reform of how the US admits refugees is to remove the contractors from the process. I have ideas on how to do that, but no one in Congress every asks!

Hetfield of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society thinks Hawaiian judge just opened floodgates

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 14, 2017

UpdateBy the end of the day we are now over the President’s ceiling by 194, and I think it would only be fair if HIAS set up an office in Hawaii and resettle all of those over the ceiling in that state! After all, Hawaii isn’t getting its fair share—only 3 so far in FY17.

I really don’t mean to turn RRW in to HIAS Watch***, but it is Mark Hetfield, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society’s well paid CEO who is setting himself up as the leading spokesman for the refugee industry.

Here (below) is his statement on the decision by the Hawaiian rogue judge.

If the Trump administration allows one judge in Hawaii to prevail, after deciding all by himself, what a “bona fide relationship” is, we might as well call it quits and go to the beach (for life!).

There is no legal standard because the Supreme Court literally made it up on the fly!

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society:

SILVER SPRING, Md.—On Thursday, July 13, U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson issued an important ruling in Hawaii halting the implementation of portions of the Trump administration’s executive order banning refugees and travelers from six Muslim-majority countries.

As a result of this ruling, refugees with assurances from U.S.-based resettlement agencies are now officially considered to have “bona fide” relationships with a U.S. entity, as defined by the Supreme Court. The Trump administration had previously interpreted the Supreme Court order to mean that refugees with such ties would not be permitted entry on that basis alone.

In his decision, Judge Watson wrote that “an assurance from a United States resettlement agency, in fact, meets each of the Supreme Court’s touchstones,” and that “bona fide does not get any more bona fide than that.”

Additionally, the Court expanded the administration’s overly narrow interpretation of which close family ties would qualify to be exempted from the refugee ban, which had originally excluded even grandparents and grandchildren.

HIAS President and CEO Mark Hetfield said, “This is a common-sense ruling which correctly interprets what the Supreme Court explicitly wrote. Critically, thousands of refugees escaping precarious and dangerous situations should now have the chance to find the safety promised to them in this country.”

More here.

Rep. Keith Ellison was the ‘draw’ at NY anti-Trump rally sponsored by HIAS.

Remember readers, this is all about their “compensation,” about money (taxpayer money!) for each refugee they place in your towns.  It is about their office overhead, their staff salaries, their travel budgets, and their ability to put on anti-Trump rallies like this one.

***This gives me an idea.  Readers are always asking me what they can do. Here is something: Start a “watch” for each of the nine contractors. Pick your favorite from the list below and write your own blog! If I can do it, so can you!

If you decide to choose HIAS we have a huge archive on them here (a good place to start!).

Federal contractors/middlemen/lobbyists/community organizers paid by you to place refugees in your towns and cities.  Because their income is largely dependent on taxpayer dollars based on the number of refugees admitted to the US, the only way for real reform of how the US admits refugees is to remove the contractors from the process.

Minnesota needs more money to combat refugee communicable diseases

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 12, 2017

The story at World Net Daily yesterday gave me an opportunity to vent about one of my major pet peeves.  And, that is that economic studies being scattered like rabbit turds around the media landscape that conclude that refugees bring economic prosperity wherever they are dropped never include the true cost of medical care (like MN is experiencing right now), the true cost of the criminal justice system, or the true cost to the economy of remittances (money sent ‘home’ by refugees) that is lost to the US economy.

But, oh well, it is all good for Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey that we deposit refugees throughout America—right Heritage Foundation!

Here is the news and some comments by me:

Minnesota pays out millions every year in welfare for refugees, but there are secondary costs that never get tabulated.

‘Assimilating’ in Minnesota. Somali men and women do not sit together! https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/09/07/wnd-more-on-minnesota-somalis-welfare-and-jihad/

In fiscal 2017, which ended last last week, the state spent $1.5 million to combat three infectious disease outbreaks — including the largest measles outbreak in 30 years, which swept through in the Somali refugee community. And health officials notified legislative leaders this week that they want to tap a special public-health fund to offset additional costs.

Dr. Ed Ehlinger, Minnesota Health commissioner, told the Star-Tribune his department will need another $600,000 for fiscal 2018 to help control the spread of measles, drug-resistant tuberculosis and syphilis.

The state has had 78 confirmed cases of measles this year, in an outbreak that began in March. Of those 78 cases, 64 have been in the Somali refugee community.

[….]

Ann Corcoran, an expert on the resettlement industry who blogs at Refugee Resettlement Watch, said the industry is fond of churning out “bogus economic studies” that falsely inflate the value of refugees to U.S. communities.

[….]

“I am sick and tired of hearing reports on the economic benefits of the refugees that they pay and start businesses and create jobs, and in those studies they never discuss the true cost of health care, or the true cost to the criminal justice system from the numerous criminal trials, incarcerations, etc.,” Corcoran told WND. “Imagine what it costs to put refugees like Fazliddin Kurbanov away for life.”

[….]

“Have you ever seen a study on the cost of even short-term incarceration? It’s never in those bogus economic studies,” Corcoran said. “And the other thing that is never in there is the remittances that are gone from our economy. And you can bet your bottom dollar it’s not just wage earnings they’re sending back home. They’re sending welfare money back home, too. So you never see a net inflow or outflow of money from our economy in these phony economic studies touting how much these refugees boost our economy.”

Continue reading here and see what Minnesotan Deb Anderson has to say about the secrecy of the refugee industry in the state (are you listening Olivia?).

And, as someone more astute than I pointed out recently: If refugees bring economic prosperity, why isn’t every country in the world begging for more?

For much, much more on costly health and communicable diseases in our refugee population, go here where I have archived 331 previous posts.

Your assignment:  Write to the White House and tell the President that you are sick of paying for sick refugees!

Hungarian PM Orban says that EU following Soros’ migration plan

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 10, 2017

He also suggests Italy will soon attempt to close its borders.  I won’t hold my breath on that one, political correctness has most of Europe by the short hairs.

Invasion of Europe news…..

 

 

From Breitbart London (which has been doing a great job of reporting on the invasion):

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has claimed the European Union are implementing migration plans designed by left-wing billionaire Geroge Soros to bring in a million migrants per year to Europe with the help of his army of NGOs.

Orbán claimed the EU and Soros wish to bring in the one million migrants annually to create an EU immigration force to undermine the national sovereignty of member states, Die Presse reports.

Hungarian Prime Minister Orban: Soros is to blame for invasion of Europe.

According to Orbán, many heads of government across Europe agree with his government’s policy on migration but will only say so in private. He also said that because of the recent surge of migration into Italy, he expected the southern European nation could soon join Hungary and others in wanting to secure their national borders.

The Italian government have already made several steps toward securing their border after they saw 13,500 migrants arrive by naval vessels and NGO rescue ships in a 48-hour period. The NGO ships have been accused by Italian prosecutors of cooperating with people smugglers and Italy has even threatened to close its ports to their boats if the traffic continues at the same pace.

Orbán also mentioned former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi who once warned that if his government should fall, then millions of people would flood Europe from Africa. The Hungarian prime minister said that although Gaddafi was no democratic ruler, Western interventionism in Libya was partly responsible for the current crisis.

BTW, it was Soros’ pal Hillary Clinton who is responsible for getting Gaddafi out of the way, see here. Watch her laugh like a mad woman!

Come on Donald! You visited Poland, now invite Viktor Orban to the White House and give him a lavish state dinner—make the heathen rage!

Tell the President, here, to invite the brave Orban to the White House!  Soros might be a friend of your son-in-law, but he is not your friend.

Yet another appeal to the (soft touch) court in Hawaii

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 10, 2017

Frankly this is really getting in to the legal weeds as the Open Borders Left/refugee pushers try one more time to stop the Trump State Department’s (DOS) interpretation of the Supreme Court decision on the ‘travel ban’ and 120-day refugee moratorium.

Of course the ‘pushers’ want every possible relative and they want any and all non-profits and refugee contractors to be considered “bona fide entities” so they can continue to haul in as many paying clients  to the US as possible.

Hawaii is begging for more diversity, so how about if all refugees admitted for the remainder of FY17 be sent to Hawaii! Artwork from Hawaii.edu  https://www.ctahr.hawaii.edu/erl/CULTURAL%20DIV%20PAGE/cultural_diversity.htm

And, they don’t want any disruption to other of their pet programs at the DOS.

Michael Leahy at Breitbart can lead you through the legal weeds better than I can, see here.

But don’t miss Leahy’s closing lines:

Of the 49,803 refugees who have been resettled in the United States during the first nine months and seven days of FY 2017, only three–all from Burma–have been resettled in Hawaii, according to the State Department interactive website.

In FY 2016, the last full year of the Obama administration, not a single refugee was resettled in Hawaii out of the total of 84,995 that were resettled in the entire country.

In the fifteen plus fiscal years since FY 2002, a total of 127 refugees have been resettled in Hawaii.

What you can do (if you have the talent)!

Someone should come up with a bumper sticker idea or poster that we could send out widely along the lines of:  “Hawaii lacks diversity, send them refugees!”  (or something more clever)

If you don’t have the talent for creating a poster or bumper sticker, then write to the White House today and tell the President: all refugees entering the US in the coming months (year!) should be sent to Hawaii!

All of my posts on this issue, the Supreme Court ruling, are filed in my ‘Supreme Court’ category.
