Obama’s State Department had big plans for new resettlement sites

Posted on September 25, 2017

Throughout 2016 we reported on some of the proposed new “welcoming” communities that the Obama team was quietly targeting as new resettlement sites. One of those was Pittsfield, Mass (here and here). Today we have news that since the number of paying clients (aka refugees) was declining under Trump, some of those sites are being […]

Here is what the ‘Refugee Act of 1980’ says the Prez and Congress must do right now…

Posted on September 2, 2017

It is the beginning of September and the new fiscal year begins on October 1.  That would be FY18. The President will submit his ‘determination’ letter and report to Congress about how many refugees COULD BE admitted for FY18 and designates where in the world they would come from. The Refugee Act of 1980 is […]

Wishful thinking in West Virginia? New resettlement office to be up and running in October

Posted on July 21, 2017

As I pointed out in my previous post, the open borders activists and the contractors*** are looking ahead to October when they think the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program will be back and moving full steam ahead. This news from Charleston, WV confirms one of two things—-either the contractors know something we don’t know, or they […]

State Department brags: enough refugees admitted to US to make 10 Pittsburghs

Posted on July 3, 2017

Charleston, WV citizen activist, Brenda Arthur, pointed us to this interesting and useful page at the US State Department website—it is a review of the work of the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) for 2016. By the way, PRM is still being run by career bureaucrats who have close ties to the resettlement contractors*** […]

Guest commentary: What you can say, when they say _____

Posted on June 23, 2017

I’m asked all the time: What can I do?  What can I do? This is an excellent example of the kind of thing you can do.  This is a list of talking points thoughtfully prepared by Brenda Arthur of the Charleston, WV Act for America chapter.  As a citizen activist, she put some serious time […]

Refugee contractor Episcopal Migration Ministries is 99.5% funded by you, will close some offices

Posted on June 16, 2017

This is old news from back in April and I don’t know if they have changed their minds about closing offices after it was announced by the Dept. of State on May 26th that the number of refugees being admitted to the US is going to tick up to 1,500 a week. Since the refugee […]

Rutland, VT mayoral contest focuses on candidates who could best heal rift over refugees

Posted on March 5, 2017

One of the things I came to see in my travels around America last summer is that mayors in many cities with refugees, or about to get refugees, seemed to be quietly (so as not to tip off citizen critics) working behind the scenes for the federal pro-refugee resettlement contractors, and/or the businesses looking for […]

No surprise, Time magazine publishes biased (anti-Trump) report on refugee controversy

Posted on January 9, 2017

Time reporter, Maya Rhodan, quotes Anne Richard the Obama Assistant Secretary of State, and public relations people at two resettlement contracting agencies, an academician, but no one on the side of slowing the flow of refugees to America for economic and security reasons!  And, there are plenty of us out here now! She does quote […]

New Mexico: Lutheran resettlement contractor puts brakes on new Sante Fe refugee program

Posted on December 23, 2016

With Trump win, Santa Fe’s refugee program on hold (Albuquerque Journal headline) Hurrah! We found another*** of the supposedly 47 sites the Obama Administration has (secretly!) approved or was working on approving for the massive numbers of refugees they expected to resettle had Hillary won the election rather than Donald Trump. Here is the sad […]

Asheville, NC still under consideration for new refugee site

Posted on December 23, 2016

At least that is what the International Rescue Committee told a local newspaper this week. By the way, as an update, Hudson, Wisconsin has dodged a bullet for now and will not be getting the Syrian families; plans for which caused a huge public outcry and the Congressman representing the district got involved. See my […]
