ORR: two federal grants available to benefit refugees and their resettlement contractors

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 21, 2018

This post falls in my ‘Special deals for special (non-citizen) people’ archive!

Where is Congress?

I see that although Congress is debating the budget for the remainder of the year, there are still millions of taxpayer funds sloshing around HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement and those have been offered up for grabs starting this week.

We’ve been reporting on the fact that the nine federal refugee contractors,*** which monopolize all resettlement in the US, are paid by the head to place refugees in your towns and that they are hurting financially as the Trump Administration slows the flow of new paying clients.

However, know that those per head payments are not the only federal funding available to them. The Office of Refugee Resettlement has myriad other grants, like these two announced a few days ago.

The first is one of the most outrageous ones we have ever discussed.  It is the ‘Refugee Individual Development Accounts (IDA) Program.’

In a nutshell, to be eligible, refugees must save some money toward a house, a car, a business or education and their savings are MATCHED by you up to a limited amount.  For example, if a family saves $4,000, you, dear taxpayer, will match them another $4,000.

The match-money is managed (and doled out) by middlemen NGOs awarded the grant—the contractors or their subcontractors usually.  Don’t believe me, see here.

Incidentally, one of the side benefits of the Leftwing government contractors/community organizers as middlemen is that it endears the refugees to that local non-profit. I’m sure the refugees think the non-profit group is giving them money!

The Trump Administration is not starving the beast!

This is the grant availability for the coming year for refugee savings accounts….

And, here I went back to look at previous grants for the IDA and it sure looks like Idaho’s Mountain States/Janus Inc. (they are one and the same) have figured out the racket as the organization got a couple of big dips into the federal trough.

Feds help refugees set up licensed childcare facilities for their kids!

The second grant announcement from ORR is the ‘Refugee Family Child Care Microenterprise Development Program.’  See here.

Besides the fact that here we have the middlemen contractors and subcontractors getting paid to help refugees set up businesses that of course will compete with American businesses where the American citizen worked hard to establish her daycare service, we reported here in 2013 that the ORR program touted the fact that the children cared for by refugee day care workers would get “culturally appropriate” care.

So much for assimilating the kids!

And, this will surely steam you—-the money is only available to those not yet US citizens.

ORR, here.

All low income refugees who are not citizens are eligible for services under this program.

Here is the grant announcement:

Center for Immigration Studies does the work, gives us a compilation of government data on immigrants

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 12, 2018

This should keep enquiring minds busy!

Here is CIS’s press release this morning:

Launching of New Immigration Data Portal

Washington, D.C. (March 12, 2018) – The Center for Immigration Studies announces the creation of a new immigration data portal. The portal consolidates government agencies’ most recent immigration statistics in one location, allowing easy access to detailed information on a multitude of key topics in immigration such as crime, illegal immigration, and labor.

logo CIS

Visit the data portal at:

The Center’s goal is to lessen the challenge of finding important immigration statistics so that fact-based research can play a larger role in informing the national debate on immigration policy. Whether the user is searching for specific numbers on refugee arrivals by country of origin, E-verify statistics reports, or the jobsite location and wage data of requested foreign workers, this portal will make finding the data dramatically easier.

Mark Krikorian, the Center’s executive director, said “It is my hope that the immigration debate will benefit from the launching of this data portal. It is imperative that immigration policy be formed by accurate data; this initiative will make it easier for all parties to access crucial immigration statistics.”

March 1 data in: Refugee admissions levels at historic low

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 1, 2018

We know that already, but as month number 5 closed last night (FY18 began on Oct. 1, 2017), we have more evidence that the refugee industry must be in complete financial chaos.

Trump and Bush

President Trump is on target to break the Bush record of the two lowest refugee admission years since the 1980 law was signed by Jimmy Carter

As you know the whole admissions industry is based on a ponzi-scheme of sorts where nine federal contractors*** which monopolize all resettlement in the US are paid by the federal government on a per refugee head basis.

Fewer refugees=less money in their coffers. 

And, as I said here, the contractors got fat and lazy on the federal dole and have not raised sufficient funds to avoid layoffs and office closures.

I suspect too that there must be internal conflicts within the fake non-profit organizations*** and between them as they are bidding for fewer and fewer bodies.

8,583 refugees have been admitted in 5 months.  

That means that, if the present rate continues, arrivals will be around 20,500 for the full year.  And, that would mean that Donald Trump will beat the George Bush record lows:

In the immediate wake of 9/11, Bush admitted 27,070 in 2002 and 28,117 in 2003.

Here is a map from the Refugee Processing Center showing where the 8,583 refugees have been placed so far this fiscal year.

I know the numbers are hard to read, nothing I can do about it.

Here are the top ten ‘welcoming’ states in descending order:  OH, TX, WA, NY, CA, PA, NC, AZ, GA, IL.

For the umpteenth time, if Congress doesn’t reform the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program in its present window of opportunity, you can expect the numbers to explode again as soon as Trump is no longer in the White House (unless someone like Trump is elected next time).

*** For new readers:

These are the private contractors that are paid by the head to place refugees in your towns and cities.

The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare)!  From most recent accounting, here.

Was there fraud in the huge resettlement of Burmese ‘refugees’ to the US?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 27, 2018

They must have found something at the USCIS or a thousand Burmese living in the US right now wouldn’t have gotten a letter to report to a USCIS office.

Was there fraud in transit country, Malaysia???

(Checking Wrapsnet I see that since FY06 we have admitted a whopping 167,583 Burmese people and they were coming before 2006 and are still coming, see map below.)

Here is a short article at the Des Moines Register about the “summons” Burmese living in Iowa have received:

Dozens of refugees in Iowa received letters from immigration officials asking them to appear for an interview and provide information that validates their status.

The refugees are from the country formerly known as Burma, a group that has grown in the past five years to include more than 8,000 living in Iowa.



Abigail Sui, program manager of Ethnic Minorities of Burma Advocacy and Resources in Des Moines.

She [Abigail Sui] said at least 50 refugees in Iowa, all who came from Burma and to the U.S. through Malaysia, got the letter from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Department that requested the in-person interview. One letter required travel to Indianapolis, while a refugee from Indiana appeared at the USCIS offices in Des Moines for an interview Monday, according to EMBARC.


“A current USCIS investigation has raised concerns about identity and biographic information provided to USCIS in a number of cases involving Burmese refugees, including many who have resettled in the U.S.,” said Sharon Rummery, a USCIS public affairs officer based in San Francisco.

She said in an email that the USCIS sent 1,000 requests for interviews nationwide that “will help determine the refugee’s immigration status or eligibility for future immigration benefits.”

The interviews are voluntary, but Sui said that she thinks consequences are possible if the refugees do not go.

Already facing resettlement hardships, the refugees would have to fund a trip to the interviews and take time off work, said Sui. In addition, no interpreters would be made available.

Can you hear the immigration lawyer stampede now—no taxpayer-funded interpreters is a big no-no!  And, how dare the Trump Administration dig more deeply into the US Refugee Admissions Program.

More here.

Here is a map from the US State Department’s Refugee Processing Center showing where the 167,583 Burmese have been placed since FY06.  Obviously there is an error as there is no number on the dark blue Indiana.   Texas takes top honors.

New readers may not know that Wyoming is the only state with no refugee program.


My archive on the Burmese may be found by clicking here.

Most of the Burmese are not Muslims but in the last few years, the US has begun admitting larger numbers of the so-called ‘Rohingya,’ Muslims from Burma and Bangladesh.

As Trump shrinks refugee program, twenty offices will be closed

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 15, 2018

“We’ve never seen a cut of this size and also a cut of this impact.”

(Hans Van de Weerd an executive at the International Rescue Committee)

Warning! Although this is news you will find valuable, especially if you live near one of the soon-to-be-closed resettlement sites, remember that this is temporary and when Trump is no longer in the White House, the refugee industry will go in to high gear to make up for what they will call the lost Trump years!

In order for that not to happen, CONGRESS must dump or reform the Refugee Act of 1980!

Reuters is reporting the impending closure of 20 offices.

Demonstrating that elections have consequences, it was only in 2016 that the State Department was on a high attempting to add about 47 offices to their roster of resettlement towns and cities.  Now this….

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Refugee resettlement agencies*** are preparing to shutter more than 20 offices across the United States and cut back operations in more than 40 others after the State Department told them to pare their operations, according to plans seen by Reuters.

Hans van de weerd facebook

It should come as no surprise to you that refugee contractor employees like Hans here also support illegal aliens getting amnesty. It isn’t about humanitarian concern for refugees, but is about flooding America with immigrants, like Hans himself.

The slated closures, which are being reviewed by the State Department for final approval, follow President Donald Trump’s decision to dramatically reduce the number of refugees that will be allowed into the United States in 2018.

The State Department has said the drop in refugee numbers, from the 110,000 ceiling set by the Obama administration to 45,000 for 2018, means the country no longer needs all of the 324 resettlement offices that were operating at the end of 2017. This year’s cap on refugees is the lowest since 1980.

The offices, run by private non-profit agencies that contract with the U.S. government, provide a range of services to refugees, from assisting them in finding housing and jobs, to helping them navigate banking, medical care, school enrollment and other complexities of life in America. [Complexities=getting their welfare!—ed]

Opponents of the resettlement program say it is more costly to resettle refugees in the United States than it is to give aid to displaced people overseas.

“The changes will consolidate smaller affiliates, reduce costs and simplify management structures to help the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program run in a way that is fiscally responsible and sustainable in the long term,” State Department spokeswoman Cheryl Harris said in an email.


“We’ve never seen a cut of this size and also a cut of this impact,” said Hans Van de Weerd an executive at the International Rescue Committee, one of the nine resettlement agencies. [Why isn’t newshound Miliband quoted?—ed]

While the size of the U.S. refugee program has fluctuated over the years, it has never seen an across-the-board cut to dozens of offices in such a short period of time, he said.

Van de Weerd said the cuts could make it difficult for the United States to ramp up refugee numbers in the future. “It took years to build up this capacity,” he said. “Once you break it down it’s not easy to build it up again.”

***These are the nine federal contractors which refer to themselves as VOLAGs (Voluntary agencies, Ha! Ha!) which will lose some of their subcontractor offices (see list here before it is revised). The number in parenthesis is the percentage of federal funding each gets to place refugees in your towns.

They are paid by the refugee head thus the focus on Trump’s admission numbers.

Lutherans announce departure of CEO Hartke amid claims of financial irregularities, poor management

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 14, 2018

Linda Hartke is the second refugee contracting agency CEO in a matter of months to step down apparently involuntarily from the leadership of one of nine federal refugee contractors.***


hartke with logo


She follows Lavinia Limon (USCRI) who was, we heard from sources, “pushed out” last October (see here).  No explanation was ever given about Limon’s departure, but it came at about the same time that investigations into LIRS had commenced.

This is what Michael Patrick Leahy is reporting at Breitbart this morning:

Linda Hartke is out as CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, three months after Breitbart News first reported on an internal investigation into claims of financial irregularities and harassment at the embattled non-profit under her leadership.

“Today, Linda Hartke, President and CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), announced her departure from LIRS after eight years of service,” LIRS said in a memorandum sent to its donors, Lutheran congregations, and the U.S. government on Tuesday.

lirs-leadership-acadmey (1)

Hartke and LIRS brought refugees to lobby Congress last June for more refugees and more funding. On our dime?

A source familiar with the operations with LIRS tells Breitbart News that the Board of Directors fired Hartke on Thursday of last week, a consequence of the findings of the internal investigation into her tenure as CEO.


“The issues related to Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIaRS) are widespread but are rooted in the main areas of financial mismanagement and the incompetence of leadership,” a source familiar with the operations of the refugee resettlement industry told Breitbart News in November, adding that “seven key areas” were the focus of the internal investigation:

Financial Mismanagement

Failure to Address Financial Irregularities Discovered by Independent Audits

Wasteful Spending

Concealment of Taxable Income

Timesheet Fraud

Budget Grant Fraud

Large Severance and Settlement Payouts to Avoid Public and Board Reporting

The State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) has contracted with LIRS and eight other voluntary agencies (VOLAGs) to resettle refugees admitted into the United States under the Refugee Admissions Program. Over the past several decades, federal payments to these VOLAGs have averaged about $1 billion annually.

Virtually all of LIRS’s revenues come from the federal government.

Continue reading here and see LIRS leadership efforts to make her departure sound so warm and fuzzy.

Yes, LIRS is a federally funded resettlement agency that I have followed for years sucking down on average 95% and up of its funding from you, the US taxpayers (see my most recent accounting, here).  We sure hope that in addition to the Dept. of Health and Human Services looking into its grants management that the US State Department is doing the same!  And, where the h*** is Congress?

Not such a happy place to work!

Just yesterday, I came across the Glassdoor and got a few screenshots of comments from employees that let you know what an internal mess was going on there in recent months.

Here are just three of those.  (When you read these, consider that all this was going on while you paid for it including Hartke’s over $300,000 annual income/related income package.)


Screenshot (1273)

Yikes! Unkindest cut of all—likening her to Trump!


Screenshot (1275)

Screenshot (1274)


LIRS near you? Then this is what you must do….

Be sure to go here and see LIRS’s subcontractors working in 23 states.  See if you have an affiliate near you.  It is up to you to make sure your people know about the turmoil at the top of this food chain!  LIRS headquarters is where your local agency gets most of their funds. And, it is LIRS headquarters that works with the US State Department to choose which refugees are to be placed in your towns and cities.


*** These are the nine federal contractors paid by you to place refugees in to hundreds of towns and cities via their subcontractors (see directory of offices).

They sit down with the Dept. of State every week in Washington to divvy-up the incoming refugees to be distributed (unbeknownst to you) to your towns.  Although, due to the Trump slowdown, there are fewer to divvy-up each week.

The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place those refugees and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare)!  From most recent accounting, here.

Refugee contractor that got nearly a half a billion from US taxpayers in under five years, wails over Trump’s budget

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 13, 2018

Miliband in Manhattan

British national and one-worlder, IRC CEO David Miliband, pulls down an annual salary package of $671,749 (doing well by doing good!).

The contractor is the International Rescue Committee with Moneybags Miliband at its helm.

But, what is so interesting is that Moneybags isn’t quoted in their press release yesterday in which they denounce the Trump Administration’s FY19 budget as “counterproductive and misguided.”

It will cut their funding dramatically because the IRC not only places refugees in your towns and cities, they are operating all over the world supposedly doing ‘humanitarian’ work that they say benefits American foreign policy.

Could Miliband be on the way back to the UK?

Will he be taking a pay cut if he stays?

Before I even get to their temper tantrum over Trump, here is just a portion (screenshot) of one page at USA Spending showing the income they received from you, American taxpayers, (via grants and contracts) from FY14 to FY18 (inclusive).


USA Spending

Screenshot (200)

Screenshot (201)

This is a portion of one page at USA Spending. There are 11 pages for the IRC just since FY14


Here is some of the press statement from the IRC yesterday in response to the release of the President’s FY19 budget:

New York, NY, February 12, 2018 — Today the Trump Administration put forward its Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19) budget request – echoing last year’s attempt to drastically cut humanitarian assistance, development aid, and refugee resettlement programs.

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) denounces the Trump administration’s proposed cuts as counterproductive and misguided. Rather than putting America First, it threatens both America’s values and our interests by crippling a vital component of US foreign policy at a time of increased challenges to global security and stability, and great humanitarian need.

Nazanin Ash

Nazanin Ash (left), IRC Veep, at Clinton Global Initiative, is quoted in the IRC’s statement rather than Moneybags. Miliband usually takes top billing in media statements. Hmmmm? On the Trump budget she said: “For the second year in a row, the Administration has proposed cuts to foreign aid that endanger lives.” (and salaries!)

The FY19 Budget Request proposes a 30% cut to the International Affairs Budget from Fiscal Year 2017 levels, including a 43% cut to development assistance, a 23% cut to global health programs, and a 19% cut to humanitarian assistance.


Now is not the time to abandon America’s bipartisan commitment to the world’s most vulnerable.

The request also proposes a 26% reduction to programs that serve newly and recently arrived refugees, asylees, and Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) recipients from Iraq and Afghanistan. Refugee resettlement has a long bipartisan history reflecting long-held American values – the IRC has been offering refuge to families fleeing war and oppression for over 80 years.

Reduced funding would not only impede the ability of refugees to access fundamental services like ESL and job training and contribute economically to their communities, it would also slash federal funding that goes to states and localities that receive refugees.  [The feds are supposed to be paying for the whole refugee program in your state—ed]

Then here comes their favorite meaningless mumbo-jumbo that is supposed to make you willingly open your wallets wide:

Helping the world’s most vulnerable is rooted in America’s values and traditions as a beacon of peace and democracy. [Surprise! The word ‘vulnerable’ used only twice in this release.—ed]

More here. No mention of the financial hit they will surely take!

By the way, Ash does not appear as one of the top salaried employees on the IRC’s most recent Form 990 (here) although from reading biographical information it seems she was on staff for that year.  Wow! take a look at those salaries you help pay!  (You should find them on page 16.)

Pay cuts coming?

Headline: 25 reasons to end Somali refugee resettlement now

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 7, 2018

That is the headline yesterday at!

This is a must-read story and a keeper.  Pass it out to friends and family and the next time you attend a public meeting, where refugee advocates will tell you that refugees aren’t terrorists and criminals, have your proof handy.

Hohmann has compiled an eye-popping list of Somali criminals that surely is the tip of the iceberg because we only learn about new cases when some local media outlet has the guts to report on the nationality of an arrested perp, and if the story breaks out of the local community.

Readers need to know that most Somalis in the US are here through the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program or through the chain migration it has spawned. 

So, although it is a good step that the Prez has increased Homeland Security’s vetting process (here), that won’t solve the problem of the children we raised with our tax dollars becoming criminals and Jihadists. begins with the recent case of the Mall of America stabber who admitted he was attempting to kill for Allah.

Of all the countries on President Trump’s list of 11 banned from sending refugees, Somalia has by far the worst track record of assimilation.


Mall of America jihadist Mahad Abdiaziz Adbiraham

That ban expired last week and the U.S. will start accepting refugees again from the 11 high-risk nations, although Trump promises a more “extreme” vetting.

Vetting, however, offers few guarantees that the refugees will become good Americans. Many of the Somalis who have run afoul of the law came here as child refugees, making them impossible to vet.

Recently we learned the Somali refugee who knifed two brothers at the Mall of America was not responding to a confrontation over an attempt to steal clothing – a false narrative put out by Bloomington police last November – but actually carried out an unprovoked act of jihad.

How do we know this? He admitted it in late January with a public statement to the court.

In the prepared statement, Mahad Abdiraham said he went to the Mall of America on Nov. 12 to “answer the call for jihad by the Chief of Believer, Abu-bakr Al-Baghdadi, may Allah protect him, and by the Mujahiden of the Islamic State.”

That is all I am snipping! You must click here and see the other astounding cases.

Many of the cases are from Minnesota, so if you are on twitter and want to have some fun, use the hashtag #LittleMogadishu .

If you are looking for something to do on a snow day, have a look at my category labelled ‘crimes’ with over 2,000 posts on the subject of immigrant crime in the US and around the world.

Reminder: Over the next few days I will be traveling, so don’t look for new posts here at RRW (after today) until early next week.  I probably won’t be able to post comments either.

FAIR: Refugee resettlement costs taxpayers billions; welfare biggest chunk

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 7, 2018

I’m happy to see that more national immigration control groups are addressing the costly UN/US Refugee Admissions Program!  Where are you Heritage?


muslim-welfare chart

Graphic (using ORR data) is not FAIR’s or Breitbart’s, but is from a 2015 report by then Senator Sessions Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest.


John Binder writing at Breitbart tells the latest story here:

Over a five year period, American taxpayers are billed more than $8 billion for the resettlement of thousands of foreign refugees every year, a new study finds.

In research conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), analysts concluded that annual refugee resettlement costs American taxpayers about $1.8 billion a year, and over five years, about $8.8 billion.

FAIR’s research found that of the $1.8 billion annual cost of resettling refugees in the U.S., about $867 million was spent on welfare.

Continue reading here.

And, go here, for FAIR’s report.

Reminder: Over the next few days I will be traveling, so don’t look for new posts here at RRW (after today) until early next week.  I probably won’t be able to post comments either.

A reader asks: Who is resettling refugees in North Carolina?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 27, 2018

And, part 2 of reader Robert’s question was: How can I find out where those Aussie detainees will be placed in my state?

Robert’s question was in response to this post:

Flight glitch causes some delay as Australia’s rejected ‘refugees’ head to US

I’m glad he asked because it reminds me that there are so many people reading RRW now who haven’t been with me for the last almost 11 years and so they have missed information previously posted.

First, a reminder that at the top of RRW (under the header) is a page entitled: FAQS! Finding Stuff.  I think most of you will find something useful there. And, if you are just relying on e-mail notices about each of my posts and not coming to the blog, you are missing a lot.  (Even if you aren’t on twitter, if you come to RRW you will see my twitter feed in the right hand column and see other related news that I don’t have time to post!)

Linked in FAQS! is the US State Department’s State-by-State index of refugee contractors working in your states. I don’t know how thorough they are with keeping it updated, you may find errors in contact information and phone numbers.


Writing about NC reminds me: Does anyone know whatever happened to the Burmese biter who was being resettled in NC last spring?

But, before I post the offices in North Carolina—a state with a huge number of contractors at work—on the issue of where the Australian rejected ‘refugees’ are going, I doubt you will find out.

If you called each office in NC, they will tell you you can’t have that information (privacy). The only possibility of finding out is if some local newspaper is inquisitive enough, but expect any story to be of the squishy PC variety.

You might consider contacting your members of Congress and see if they can find out. They likely won’t have any more luck than you, but it will be a good lesson (for them) in how this program is run so secretively.

Also, since there are large numbers of Burmese refugees in NC already, look to the Rohingya (Burmese Muslims) we have been told are coming from Australia to be placed in Burmese communities even though we know that Burmese Christians fear the Rohingya refugees.

The Burmese Rohingya Muslims are not on the Trump “banned” countries list.

Eight of nine federal contractors*** are working in North Carolina attesting to the fact that the state has rolled out the welcome mat!

Here are screenshots of the federal contractors’ contact information for North Carolina (a state they are turning blue through immigration).

In the left hand corner, as in this first screenshot, is each subcontractor’s primary contractor.

See the contractor list at the end of this post. The only tricky one is Episcopal Migration Ministries which often hides behind its other name: Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (DFMS).

Knowledge is power!

I urge all of you to use the FAQS! here at the top of the page and do some research. Then type your state’s name into my search window and find out what I’ve reported from your state during the last ten plus years!

***These are the nine federal contractors that monopolize all US resettlement. Only the IRC is absent from NC. Number in parenthesis is the amount of federal dollars (your money) going to their budgets.
