The kids at William and Mary pushing ahead with refugee resolution

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 4, 2016

See our earlier post on efforts by students (whose residence is elsewhere) campaigning to get Syrian Muslim (98% of those we are admitting are Muslim) refugees placed in the historic town of Williamsburg, VA.

colonial-williamsburg

Sam and friends: Colonial Williamsburg needs some diversity and Syrian Muslims should do the trick! Got mosque yet?

They held a community forum this past week (30 or so attended according to news reports) and said they planned to push ahead in Williamsburg and around the state with their resolution idea.

This is the latest at The Virginia Gazette (emphasis mine):

There are no Syrian refugees in Williamsburg, but there could be soon. Students at William and Mary want to let refugees know they’re welcome here, if the state sees fit.

Speaking at a forum on Tuesday evening, students said the rationale for passing a resolution through city council is making sure refugees understand that they’ll enter a community that hopes to support them.

A resolution does not guarantee Williamsburg will take in any refugees — the federal government lets non-governmental organizations gauge where refugees might best fit.

Those organizations factor in aspects like the availability of open housing and the presence of an immigrant community.  [Remember this  last bit, once you have an immigrant seed community started then you are likely to get even more!—ed]

[….]

[Sam] Steed*** said Newport News actually voted to keep its 51 refugees out of the city, but the government placed them there anyway. [Important to note: elected body did not want refugees resettled in Newport News but shoved down their throats anyway!—ed]

“Certainly, a lot of refugees feel unwelcome (in Newport News),” Steed said.

Other places have to make it clear that they will accept Syrian refugees, Steed said. He considers Williamsburg at the start to get similar resolutions passed around the state.

Don’t these young activists read the news? 

Yes, we agree that those getting in to the US on student visas do pose a huge security risk, but the Ohio Somali Slasher is a resettled refugee.  Even NBC News reported that!

Not only is the process for refugees long, it’s considered one of the most stringent in the world, Vollavanh said. Those coming in on a student visa or work visa have less red tape.

He noted that the Somalian refugee killed at Ohio State on Nov. 28 was in the country on a student visa. [Huh?—ed]

Readers in Virginia who might be concerned that the refugee activists at William and Mary might be checking out your towns in which to push their resolution should see our ‘Tens things your town needs to know before ‘welcoming’ refugeeshere.

Is your Episcopal Church attempting to make your town a new refugee resettlement site?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 3, 2016

Here is a short story from Hendersonville, NC, a town in the western part of the state, where a little uproar occurred earlier this summer when a local Episcopal Church proposed making the town a new site to place mostly Syrians, Somalis, Iraqis and some of the other ethnic groups being brought in to the US right now in large numbers.

Turns out that the contractor the local ‘church’ people approached isn’t interested right now, so it looks like the idea is dead on arrival.  I’m reporting this not for that bit of news, but to remind you that your local churches and INTERFAITH groups are on the offense to try to convince the feds and a resettlement contractor to add your town to the growing list of sites. (The Refugee Processing Center website has not put up the directory of sites we had for years been able to access. Maybe the State Dept. doesn’t want you to know!)

hendersonville_nc

Hendersonville dodges a bullet for now! If Congress doesn’t give the ORR extra money this next week, any plans for new sites may have to be put on hold.

I recommend that you keep your eyes and ears open in your ‘church’ circles and if you have an Interfaith group, join it, so you can stay informed.

From WLOS ABC News 13:

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) — Members of a Hendersonville church appeared to drop a proposal to bring refugees into the mountains.

A spokesperson for Episcopal Migration Ministries—the organization associated with the church that handles refugee programs—emailed News 13 this week stating:

Episcopal Migration Ministries was approached by a grassroots group from the area and we have shared in conversation, but we are not actively engaged at this time in developing a resettlement site.”

Hendersonville City Council member Ron Stephens was against the proposal.

Greeley, CO: Refugee advocate worries about backlash against Somalis

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 30, 2016

Earlier I posted a news round-up of stories on the Somali refugee slasher, see it here.  Then I mentioned there are three (at least) other news stories I wanted to spend more time on.  I posted the first of those here.

And, this is the next one, from the Greeley Tribune.  The story is not about how citizens of Greeley are worried about an Islam-inspired attack there, but whether the Ohio State attack might cause some Americans to say nasty things about Somalis in Greeley. Sheesh.

jbs-greeley

I took this photo of JBS (previously Swift & Co) headquarters in Greeley, CO on my tour of meatpackers of America this past summer. JBS is a Brazilian-owned company. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JBS_USA

Before I tell you the news from Greeley, know that we have an extensive archive on Greeley here at RRW going back years.

Greeley has a Somali refugee population because one of the largest FOREIGN-OWNED meatpackers (JBS) has lured them there to fill the company’s need for cheap legal immigrant labor.

Think about it! A foreign company gets to tap into cheap refugee labor (subsidized by welfare) and change your town forever!

Greeley Tribune (emphasis is mine):

After hearing of the attack at Ohio State University on Monday, Global Refugee Center Executive Director Erich Strehl’s first thoughts were for the victims. [Sure!—ed] Eleven were injured when Somali-born student Abdul Razak Ali Artan drove his car into students and then stabbed many others.

But Strehl’s mind quickly turned [I bet it did!—ed] to Artan’s Somalian heritage and the impact that could have on the community he serves in Greeley, a community already on edge after a contentious election season.

“I thought it was an unfortunate event to have happened at any time, but particularly now with the way things are in the United States with refugees and the program that resettles them,” Strehl said.

erichstrehl-gdt

Erich Strehl of the Global Refugee Center in Greeley shills for BIG MEAT. Does he understand that? http://www.grccolorado.org/

[….]

For the past several years, 100-200 Somalian refugees have taken up residence in Greeley. After a period of time, refugees are no longer tracked, free to go anywhere just like any American, Strehl said. So pinpointing an exact number of Somalian refugees in Greeley or Evans at any one time is difficult. There’s no indication any Somalian-born residents in northern Colorado have violent intentions, as the Ohio State student did. Strehl said attacks like the one at Ohio State serve to terrorize those in the Somali-American community as much as any other American. [The Islamist terrorist at Ohio State had shown no violent intentions either before he went on the murderous rampage on Monday!—ed]

“If anyone gets reprisal outside of the localized incident it would be those who have similarities to the individual carrying it out,” Strehl said.

Although Strehl hasn’t heard specifically of verbal or physical attacks against local Somalian refugees, he knows there is uncertainty and concern in the community. It was that way when Donald Trump became president-elect, particularly among Muslim refugees.

“The concern has only been heightened, particularly in this last attack,” Strehl said.

[….]

“We did communicate with local police and even the FBI,” Strehl said. “There didn’t seem to be any known threat against refugees here.”

This last is about making sure that they firmly implant the idea that the victims here are Somali refugees!

When you visit our Greeley archive, don’t miss Greeley’s role in the formation of radical Islamic thinking! As they populate Greeley you can be sure the Islamic supremacist thinkers get a great chuckle out of that fact!

Also, we had written so much about Greeley and Swift a number of years ago, we had a separate category just for the on-going controversy there—-the epicenter of conflicts over Muslim demands for special accommodation in the workplace.  Click here.

How many white refugees did we take from South Africa last month?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 29, 2016

I used to have more time to write about South Africa—the LOL! Rainbow Nation—but haven’t recently.

rainbow-nation

This artwork came from an article entitled, ’17 Interesting Facts about South Africa.’ Don’t miss number 16! By the way, is that yellow person in the middle supposed to be the white people of South Africa? http://www.goweirdfacts.com/17-interesting-facts-about-south-africa.html/2

However, in light of what I have been writing about today: the FACT that we are picking up Somalis all over the world and bringing them to Anytown, USA, I want to mention this again.

(You can see my archive on South Africa by clicking here.)

The joke is that although South Africa is still being touted as the Rainbow Nation that welcomes all races and religions, it is not happy with its fellow black Africans and most particularly the Somalis.  So guess what? We take them! We are bringing them as ‘refugees’ to America from South Africa.  (see the processing country map I’ve been displaying for the last couple of days below).

Just like Australia’s unwanted illegal aliens, why are South Africa’s illegal aliens our problem?

This bit of information is buried in a story about Buffalo, NY and the many languages spoken in the school system there.  Remember ‘welcoming’ communities you have a huge expense coming when you set up a resettlement site, but what interested me more than the language issue (discussed frequently on these pages) was this brief mention near the end of the article.

Thanks to all who sent the Buffalo News story:

The father is from Somalia. He fled his country and made the risky journey to South Africa. That’s where he met his eventual wife and where his daughters were born, but where the family did not have permanent residency. [What! We thought everyone was welcome in SA?—ed]

So the United Nations sent them to us! So much for the welcoming Rainbow Nation!

See the map for just the month of October 2016.  How many of the 151 who arrived in the US in October are persecuted white South Africans? (Gasp! Politically incorrect question alert!)

I’ve asked this other very sensible question in the past: Once whites are in the minority will the tables be turned and will the UN promote the resettlement of whites into black majority nations (to add some diversity!)?  Hmmmmm?

 

screenshot-71

Who are the 151 ‘refugees’ we admitted from the SAFE country of South Africa last month? I’ll bet the largest numbers are Somalis!

Up next! Niagara Falls to become ‘welcoming’ refugee resettlement site

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 28, 2016

We learned months ago that the US State Department had been secretly assessing the feasibility of 47 new sites in which to place some of Obama’s last wish—110,000 refugees for America in FY2017.

Those 47 would presumably be in addition to the 110-200 listed here. (oops! The State Department’s Refugee Processing Center has taken down some of the handiest links we could previously access. Sure hope it is just temporary and not a further effort to keep information from the general public.)

seneca-niagara-casino

Seneca Niagara Casino needs workers, so Niagara Falls will get a refugee office. Starting wages must be too low to attract Americans! I wonder who owns this Casino? No time to find out right now….

Because there is no published list of new sites we can only assume that is because the federal government and its contractors do not want to tip off any citizens who might object.

We have been listing all those we learn about (see list below).

But here is the latest news on Niagara Falls from Buffalo News.

The Jewish resettlement contractor says there are jobs there for refugees—what as waiters, maids and janitors in hotels catering to tourists?

As many as 50 refugees from one of the world’s troubled spots are likely to resettle in Niagara Falls next year as Jewish Family Service of Buffalo and Erie County expands its services northward. [It is just the beginning, the numbers will increase each year and there is no stopping it once a contractor has set up shop.—ed]

The U.S. State Department recently approved Jewish Family Service’s application to begin refugee resettlement in the Cataract City [nickname—ed], said Marlene A. Schillinger, the local group’s president and CEO.

Jewish Family Service will be the first refugee resettlement agency working in Niagara Falls, and Schillinger said it makes sense to do so.

“There’s capacity for this in Niagara Falls,” she said. “There are employment opportunities.”

Many refugees who have resettled in Buffalo have taken jobs at the Seneca Niagara Casino, and Jewish Family Service hopes some of the new arrivals who settle in Niagara Falls will do the same.

Jewish Family Service has been working with Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster and the Niagara Falls School District to prepare for the refugees’ arrival.

“You can’t just plop people down there,” said Peter Scott, career services program manager at Jewish Family Service, who will supervise the new operation.

They say the community is all fine with it! Does the community even know?

pauldyster-1024x680

Democrat Mayor Paul Dyster supports the arrival of the federal refugee resettlement program to Niagara Falls. See his bio here: http://www.dyster.com/

And despite fears that refugees from Syria might be a terror threat, “we have not had any pushback from the community,” Scott said. “And there’s certainly an economic benefit.”

Dyster could not be reached for comment, but Schillinger and Scott said the mayor has been supportive, hoping a refugee influx in Niagara Falls could revitalize neighborhoods and stem falling population, just as it has in Buffalo.

[….]

Fewer refugees have arrived in America recently from Burma, the destination that has been the source of a majority of Buffalo’s refugee influx in the past 15 years. But Burma remains one of the top five home countries for refugees moving to the U.S., along with the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria, Iraq and Somalia.

One thing the good citizens can be sure of is that the refugees will most likely be Muslims from Iraq, Syria and Somalia.  Even with the Burmese, large numbers now arriving are Burmese Muslims (which won’t make the Burmese Christians living there very happy!).  Just so you know, only a handful from DR Congo are Muslims.  However, Niagara Falls officials need to know they will get a mix of refugees and they don’t get to choose their favorite ethnic groups.

You should know that this Jewish agency is a subcontractor of the major federal resettlement contractor Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society.

New sites!

Here are some of the new sites being chosen by the US State Department (that we know of!).  We are adding Niagara Falls, NY. If anyone there is interested in learning more, check out our ‘Ten Things Your Town Needs to Know‘ by clicking here.

Asheville, NC

Rutland, VT

Reno, NV

Ithaca, NY

Missoula, MT

Aberdeen, SD (may have been thwarted as a primary resettlement site!)

Charleston, WV (expansion of what was a very small program)

Fayetteville, AR

Blacksburg, VA

Pittsfield, MA

Northhampton, MA

Flint, MI

Bloomington, IN

Traverse City, MI

Poughkeepsie, NY

Wilmington, DE

Watertown, NY (maybe)

Youngstown, OH (maybe)

Storm Lake, Iowa

Niagara Falls, NY

Cut the crap! Australia ‘refugee’ deal is about the Australian public not wanting any more Muslim migrants

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 27, 2016

….while Obama is willing to take all he can get!

Look at this New York Times story on the supposed deal the Obama Administration has made with Australia to take its rejected asylum seekers off their hands! And, look at the UN twisting like a pretzel as it tries to explain why this insane deal is even being considered.

What it all boils down to is this: the Australian public (the voters) are sick and tired of all the Muslim boat people trying to break into Australia (so they have been parked offshore), but Australian political leaders, by agreeing to take Central American (phony refugees) in Costa Rica, are banking on being able to sell the public on most likely Catholics (or Christians of some sort) rather than the Muslims whose asylum cases were rejected!

This is basically a swap of illegal aliens! Don’t believe the UN that this is a “one-off!”  Check out Malta, the European island nation that sends the US its overflow African illegal alien boat people, a travesty we have been writing about for years.

The Muslim boat people held in detention in Australian offshore facilities have had their asylum claims rejected.  So neither those on Nauru or those in Costa Rica are legitimate (by definition) refugees! 

For background, before you read on, see Grassley and Goodlatte blast Obama, hereThere is a list of the nationalities of the failed asylum seekers, most come from Muslim countries.

New York Times (hat tip: heymister24):

SYDNEY, Australia — For years, the United Nations’ refugee agency told Australia that its policy of banishing asylum seekers to remote Pacific island detention centers was illegal.

samantha-power

This is Obama’s Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power. This “deal” sounds like something she wholeheartedly approved. What will Nikki Haley do about it (or other similar deals, this is not a one-off) when she gets to the UN? Will she say No! We don’t know, but one thing we can be sure of, Haley will likely dress more professionally than Power!

Now, the agency is working with Australia in what both sides call an unusual, not-to-be-replicated agreement to send some of those refugees across the world, to be resettled in the United States.

The deal, announced by Australia last week, is aimed at shutting down two offshore detention facilities — one on the island nation of Nauru and the other on Manus Island in Papua New Guinea — where hundreds of people are housed in what rights groups describe as deplorable conditions. The United States has agreed to take some of them; how many, and how quickly, remains unclear.

[….]

In an interview this week, Volker Turk, an assistant high commissioner with the United Nations’ refugee agency, said his staff would help with the screening and resettlement of refugees but only as a “one-off” to allay their suffering. “We think there is an urgent imperative to find a humanitarian way out of this otherwise very, very, complex conundrum,” he said by telephone from Canberra, the Australian capital.

What the heck is the “complex conundrum?” 

Either they are legitimate refugees that Australia should admit to the mainland or they are illegal aliens who should be returned to where they came from.

THEY ARE NOT AMERICA’S PROBLEM EITHER WAY!

NYT continues:

“We do not in any way want to give the impression that we would continue supporting such types of mechanisms,” Mr. Turk said, referring to Australia’s offshore detention policy. “We, all of us, are very clear that this is a one-off, good offices, exceptional humanitarian type of involvement because we do not believe that the future of handling this lies in sending people to Manus Island and Nauru.”

[….]

Making the deal even more unusual, Australia has agreed to take in an unspecified number of Central American refugees who fled gang violence in their homelands.  [Fleeing gang violence is not a criteria for being designated a refugee!—ed]  The United Nations says there are an estimated 2,400 such people from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras who have been screened and recognized as refugees [Who “recognized” them?—ed]. The United States has long been reluctant to let them apply for asylum on its territory and only recently agreed to let the United Nations vet them at a processing center in Costa Rica.

I REPEAT, WHY ARE THE CENTRAL AMERICANS WHO FLED TO COSTA RICA OUR PROBLEM?

Legitimate asylum seekers are supposed to ask for asylum in the first safe country they get to, they are not supposed to be ‘asylum shopping’ for better deals! By doing this ‘one-time’ (ha! ha!) deal we set the precedent for many more to come!

Turkey threatens to unleash millions of Syrian Muslims on Europe (again)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 27, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

The EU is between a rock and a hard place!

Remember Turkey is not our friend (Obama’s, but not ours)!

 

screenshot-71

Unrelated (sort of) to this story, I wanted you to see this data from the US State Department’s Refugee Processing Center because I want you to know that the three top countries through which we process refugees to the US are Kenya, TURKEY and Jordan. All three are processing in mostly Muslim refugees. Data for the month of October only. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B84u_jF_w2FMSTd4cUNwTXhpaUE/view

 

From the Irish Times:

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned the European Union that his country may wave through up to three million migrants to Europe as Ankara reacted furiously to Thursday’s vote in the European Parliament calling on Turkey’s accession negotiations to be frozen.

Mr Erdogan said that Turkey could row back on the migrant pact signed with the EU in March, which has dramatically reduced the number of refugees entering the EU through Turkey.

U.S. President Barack Obama pledged Sunday to redouble U.S. efforts to eliminate the Islamic State group and end the Syrian civil war that has fueled its rise, denouncing the extremist group's horrifying terror spree in Paris as "an attack on the civilized world." (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)

Three kindred spirits changing the world order, undermining Western Civilization: President Barack Obama, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and German Chancellor Angela Merkel

As a condition of that deal, the EU promised to accelerate Turkey’s accession talks and consider granting visa-free access to Turkish citizens to Europe.

But concerns about the Turkish government’s increasingly authoritarian stance, as it clamps down on dissenters following July’s failed coup, has sparked calls for Turkey’s accession talks to be suspended.

Speaking in Istanbul on Friday, the Turkish president accused the EU of “betraying its promises”.

“If you go any further, these border gates will be opened,” he said, describing the parliament vote as a “dry threat”.

If Turkey opens its gates, I predict Erdogan should expect the so-called ‘anti-immigration’ parties to win big! So, his threat, if carried out will not help his case.

Elections are looming in a number of EU countries next year, including France, Germany and the Netherlands, with anti-immigration parties expected to poll strongly.

As a result, incumbent governments are unlikely to want to commit to granting 78 million Turkish people visa-free access to Europe.

More here.

Our ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive is here.

On the Refugee Processing Center where the US State Department keeps the data on who is coming in to the country through the RAP, we have found that important parts of the site are unavailable again and we hope it is only a Thanksgiving weekend anomaly. Notice how the new site has become an advocacy-oriented site.  This is the sort of thing a new Secretary of State must know about and be ready to change!

Students at William and Mary pushing for refugee resettlement for Williamsburg, VA

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 27, 2016

Update November 29th:  See tongue in cheek comment with a suggestion for Sam, below!

The biggest threats to the social order and economic viability of your community may be the little darlings at your local college or university (many of whom will graduate and go somewhere else in four short years).

college-of-william-and-mary

Readers in Virginia need to nip this in the bud. 

Students are pushing for a city resolution welcoming the federal refugee contractors in to set up shop in the historic city. (Nevermind that there is little low cost housing because the students likely gobble it all up!).

Why is it so cool for the kids these days to want to bring in Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees while not caring about the local American poor, disabled or struggling veterans?

From the Virginia Gazette:

William and Mary students want to make sure refugees know they are welcome in Williamsburg if and when the state sees fit. First step: getting the city council to pass a resolution to that effect.

In light of severe political unrest and danger in Syria, more than 10,000 refugees have entered the United States. They’ve settled in cities and towns across the country.

“The resolution would say that the city of Williamsburg would be willing to accept refugees were they to come,” senior student Andrew Vollavanh said.

He and other students decided to take the city resolution route after speaking with city staff. “We were trying to proceed in a legislative fashion,” Vollavanh said. “The mayor told us that probably wasn’t the best way to do it.”

Sam Steed is the Virginia legislative coordinator at Amnesty International and a student at the college.

Be sure to check out the information on Sam (photo caption at Virginia Gazette)!  He is from Massachusetts and wants a  job with Amnesty International when he graduates!

Looks like this is a national campaign aimed at college towns.

He said that resolutions similar to the one that they are trying to pass in Williamsburg have already passed in other cities, including Durham, North Carolina, New Paltz, New York, and Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Williamsburg does not share all of the traits of those cities, but the students still want to push a resolution through. The federal government lets trusted non-governmental organizations [LOL! “trusted”!—ed] figure out where refugees can settle upon entering the U.S. They weigh characteristics like whether there is an existing immigrant community and housing availability.

Continue reading as they repeat the refugee industry’s talking points that seem to be springing up everywhere.  These are the three main talking points we have addressed in the past:

omar-al-harden

Omar al Harden an Iraqi refugee plead guilty in Houston recently. He planned to bomb two area malls for ISIS. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2016/10/18/houston-tx-iraqi-refugee-pleads-guilty-in-isis-bomb-plot-so-much-for-screening/

~Only women and children! So we are expected to believe that these Middle Eastern and African women are going to live without their men for the next couple of decades. There is this thing called “family reunification.”

~Thoroughly vetted! But, no one tells the students that the Director of the FBI has testified to Congress that the Syrians can’t be vetted because there is no documentation on them from the failed state of Syria. In spite of that, Obama shortened ‘screening’ for Syrians from 18-24 months down to 3 months.

~No terrorist arrests in the refugee population in the US! Amazing to me that they tell this bald-faced lie when there is plenty of documentation of Islamic terrorist arrests and convictions (caught before they acted!) in the US refugee population.

I told readers about a few cases off the top of my head here when Church World Service was spinning in Poughkeepsie. One of these days I guess I will have to go back through my refugee crimes category and pull out all the Islamic terror/crime stories from the last 9 years involving refugees.

And, if you live nearby don’t miss this:

Students at the campus chapter of Amnesty International will hold a forum on Nov. 29 where experts will talk about some of the nuances involved in accepting refugees.

See more of the story at the Virginia Gazette.

And, one final thought.  Since Williamsburg is an independent city with as they admit little housing for poor people, the kids would presumably have to sell this idea on surrounding counties.

Editor (update): Here is a fun comment from a reader making a suggestion for Sam (sent to my personal email):

Sam Steed from Massachusetts, a student at William and Mary, wants to turn Williamsburg into a welcoming city for refugees, does he? Well, I’d say he doesn’t go far enough.

So, Sam, here’s what I propose you do to gain credibility — Before you ask the city of Williamsburg to welcome refugees, you and fellow do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do students must step forward and offer to adopt individual refugees and their families, prepare them for assimilation into America, and then take them home to Mom and Dad for a lesson in cultural diversity. The refugees can be a real-life report card, like show and tell: this is what your tuition bought. Deal with it, Mom and Dad, or else you’re a racist and a bigot and a xenophobe.

What do you say, Sam? Amnesty International might hire you early!

Lancaster County, PA refugee economic study is misleading

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 26, 2016

If everything is so copacetic in Lancaster County, then why did it go 57% for Donald Trump?

This is what the Left is so good at—writing studies that are not completely accurate to paint a positive picture of the economic impact of refugees on a community and then use it as a news-hook.

But, in this case the study (the propaganda!) which concluded that immigrants/refugees economically benefit Lancaster County, PA was produced by the real driver of the Open Borders movement, not the Leftwing, do-gooder, ‘humanitarians,’ but business interests who want the ready supply of cheap labor—-the Chamber of Commerce and Bloomberg’s New American Economy cheered on by federal refugee contractor Church World Service which receives most of its funding from you, the taxpayer.  [For more on the New American Economy, go here.–ed]

NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 15: Former Mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg speaks at a press conference announcing a new initiative between the Clinton Foundation, United Nations Foundation and Bloomberg Philanthropies, titled Data 2x on December 15, 2014 in New York City. Data 2x aims to use data-driven analysis to close gender gaps throughout the world. (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)

Do not trust any propaganda from leading Open Borders advocates like Bloomberg: “Former Mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg speaks at a press conference announcing a new initiative between the Clinton Foundation, United Nations Foundation and Bloomberg Philanthropies…” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michael-bloomberg/bloomberg-what-works-cities-data_b_7097304.html (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)

The article at Philly.com (fake news?) seems to be promoting refugee resettlement, but when you look closely, the educated and hardworking immigrants cited are mostly not refugees—they are Vietnamese (we only take a handful of refugees from Vietnam now), Mexicans, Germans!, Dominicans, and a smaller number of Cubans which we do take as refugees, but shouldn’t be!

But, the most important and misleading aspect of the story is that there is no information in the study about what the refugees/immigrants cost Lancaster County and the federal taxpayer for welfare, subsidized housing, food stamps, medicare, the criminal justice system and a biggie—education for the kids.

The low wages Tyson Foods and other big global corporations pay their labor is supplemented by you, so of course the business community loves this model!

Philly.com:

Lancaster County is Donald Trump land. The president-elect won 57 percent of the 240,000 votes cast there, compared with Hillary Clinton’s 38 percent.

The county of about a half-million people also is home to fast-growing numbers of immigrants and refugees – 23,094 as of last count – whose rate of growth from 2009 to 2014 was nearly double the rate for the county as a whole. Nationwide, immigrants and refugees were among groups often lambasted by candidate Trump.

But in Lancaster County, according to a study released Tuesday, foreign-born residents have had “an outsize” positive impact on the local economy, and in 2014 contributed $62.8 million to Social Security, $16.4 million to Medicare, $52.5 million in state and local taxes, and $103.3 million in federal taxes. Their spending power was estimated at $440.5 million.

The study was a joint project of the Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Lancaster County Refugee Coalition. It was conducted and underwritten by the bipartisan New American Economy, a Washington nonprofit whose cochairs include former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former Philadelphia Mayor Michael A.

“With the very serious workforce challenges the business community faces, the findings in this report will help us to more fully leverage every person in this county,” Cheryl Irwin-Bass, vice president of the chamber, said when she presented the study at her group’s annual State of the County event.

The study cites manufacturing and health care as industries in which immigrants have played important roles. Some refugees have obtained jobs at Tyson Foods. [I wonder if refugees who sign up abroad to come here are forewarned about the meatpacking jobs they are expected to fill—ed]

Church World Service has an office in Lancaster City, and the refugees she helps include Syrians who have had to flee their war-ravaged homeland. The top five immigrant groups are from Vietnam, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Germany, and Cuba. [Mostly NOT refugees—ed]

Forget humanitarianism, it is all about money!

If I have done nothing else with this post and years of work on the subject of Refugee Resettlement I hope I have gotten one important message through to you dear reader—-Refugee Resettlement in America is NOT first and foremost about humanitarianism, it is about big business and cheap labor!

I’ve written a lot about Lancaster (Amish country) over the years. My interest began in 2007 when it was Lancaster’s spillover (there was some problem with crime there we were told by our police chief) that came to my county in western Maryland.

Go here for my archive on Lancaster. See especially posts where some very unhappy citizens protested against more refugee resettlement and where the school system endured a very expensive lawsuit filed by lawyers for refugees (I bet Bloomberg didn’t include that cost in his study!).

German court: Syrian ‘refugees’ may not be refugees by definition

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 26, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…..

Just yesterday I told you about how the Open Borders Left has in recent years been attempting to broaden the legal definition of refugee to include anyone running from almost anything!

Refugees must prove they will be PERSECUTED if returned home.

Now, we see a German court attempting to reestablish the real definition of what constitutes a legal right to ask for asylum (now that Germany is completely overwhelmed with a migrant flow from Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East and from Africa).

Uh-oh for judge Uta Strzyz! Does Germany have the equivalent of the Southern Poverty Law Center, if so, is she ready for the “hater” label?

Pay attention to one extremely important difference between Germany and the United States when it comes to ‘refugees.’

Syrians will be in Germany on a TEMPORARY BASIS while we take Syrians PERMANENTLY. Once admitted to the US they do not go home (well, they might for vacation, but that is another story)!  So the next time some refugee-pusher guilt-trips you by telling you that Germany is doing so much more, remind them of this fact.

From Deutsche Welle (Merely fleeing Syria does not mean one faces persecution there, the court said!):

Refugees from the Syrian conflict may not be entitled to automatic protection in Germany anymore, after a higher court in the northern city of Schleswig ruled that they could not be automatically defined as refugees under the United Nations convention.

Instead, the judge said Syrians who come to Germany should only be offered “subsidiary protection” – a designation under European law that means they are only entitled to stay in Germany one year, rather than three, and are not allowed to bring their families with them.

The key question was whether the refugees face political persecution. “There are no indications that the Syrian state puts everyone under general suspicion of belonging to the opposition,” judge Uta Strzyz told the court on Wednesday.

The issue has dogged Germany’s legal system for several months. In fall 2015, Syrians received full refugee status as defined by the 1951 UN Refugee Convention, but the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) changed its policy in March 2016, allowing them only subsidiary protection.
