Speaker Ryan blasts Trump over Muslim ban, can we hear Grover in his words?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 9, 2015

Norquist scowl

Grover Norquist

That would be Grover Norquist of course, Ryan’s doppelgänger!  (or is it the other way around?)

Some observers who have heard Norquist opine on the joy that Islamic diversity brings to America—Muslims in the military (like the jihadist Major Hasan?) and in Congress and that it isn’t “conservatism” to worry about shariah law and devout Muslim-generated terrorism—think they heard Grover in Ryan’s speech.

If you are a new reader and have never heard of Grover Norquist, you have some catching up to do.

He is the President of Americans for Tax Reform, a longtime Washington, DC fixer, and as an Islamist has been a promoter of American Muslim ‘rights’ since before 9/11.  He is also a big fan of Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House.

Norquist: Shariah law is compatible with the US Constitution!

Be sure to read a post of mine from 2011 at Potomac Tea Party Report about Norquist’s comment to Think Progress—‘Shariah law is compatible with the US Constitution’ here.

Ryan with beard

Yes massa’! More in common than their facial hair?

And, don’t miss this!  Norquist was in the wings advising Senator Marco Rubio on the Gang of Eight bill (another of Norquist’s pet projects as a long-time advocate for amnesty and open borders).  See Grover has a new gig!

Are Norquist and Ryan working to put Rubio in the White House—that is my guess.

They will be able to control (boy) Rubio, but not Trump.

See the Washington Post gushing over Ryan’s words against Trump (Ryan also gave a shout-out to Muslim Members of Congress Keith Ellison and Andre Carson) and completely (on purpose!) misses the point of Trump’s ban which is within the power granted by the US Constitution—we have every right to determine which non-citizens we permit in the country!

(See Ryan’s dump on Trump at that Washington Post link.)

Go here to our extensive archive on Grover Norquist.  Norquist was a Bushy, but I suspect he sees that Jeb is dead (politically). And, remember this—ten big name Republicans (including Jeb) signed on to a 2014 letter (most likely drafted by Norquist) asking that Republicans support MORE refugee resettlement (click here).  We first learned of Norquist’s involvement in the Hijra here in 2007 when he was promoting the resettlement of mostly Muslim Iraqis to the US.

Action Alert!  Trump is right! Ryan is wrong! Click here and call your House members today!

Update!  Watch this Trump supporter—people are p***** . He is talking about Ryan, Rubio, Norquist and the Washington elite.

CPAC 2014: Trump was out in front (virtually alone) on immigration issue

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 11, 2015

Yesterday Ann Coulter tweeted this little walk down memory lane about the premiere (supposedly) conservative conclave held in Washington, DC each year known as CPAC.

trump_cpac14

For the record, we have written often on CPAC, but will not attend primarily because CPAC ‘leaders’ including Grover Norquist have worked hard for many years to keep discussions on immigration to a minimum and have outright banned those who want to discuss the Islamist threat to America.

Go here for our archive of posts on Grover Norquist.  BTW, while pushing his amnesty agenda, Norquist worked very closely with the office of Senator Marco Rubio in helping craft that now discredited ‘Gang of Eight’ amnesty bill, but I’m digressing.

Here is a piece (3/7/14) written by Jon Feere at the Center for Immigration Studies (tweeted by Ann Coulter yesterday) which chronicles how Trump was alone among a list of Republican leaders and Presidential wannabes in addressing immigration.

Trump was talking about our borders, our sovereignty and the future of the Republican Party long before he decided to jump into the Presidential race, and he must have been very unpopular (with the ‘leaders’ at CPAC) with this message! 

From Feere at CIS (emphasis below is mine):

Nearly every speaker at the first day of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) avoided any discussion of immigration or amnesty, a sign that Republican politicians are starting to understand that conservative voters have very little interest in doubling legal immigration and amnestying illegal aliens.

Of all speakers, which included Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and governors Chris Christie and Bobby Jindal, only one speaker spent any time on immigration policy: Donald Trump. He came out strong on sovereignty and garnered strong applause for noting “we’re either a country, or we’re not; we either have borders or we don’t.” Trump also noted that amnesty is a benefit for the Democratic Party, while calling out Rubio:

When you let the 11 million — which will grow to 30 million people — in, I don’t care who stands up, whether it’s Marco Rubio, and talks about letting everybody in, you won’t get one vote. Every one of those votes goes to the Democrats. You have to do what’s right; it’s not about the votes necessarily. But of those 11 million potential voters which will go to 30 million in a not too long future, you will not get any of those votes no matter what you do, no matter how nice you are, no matter how soft you are, no matter how many times you say ‘rip down the fence and let everybody in’ you’re not going to get the votes. So with immigration, you better be smart and you better be tough, and they’re taking your jobs, and you better be careful. You better be careful.

Bowling Green, KY: Arrests made in Sunni vs. Shiite tussle

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 31, 2015

Hmmmm!

So where is Rand?

Did Grover get to Rand Paul? Or, was it big business donors (meatpackers maybe?) who caused Paul to go wobbly on the refugee issue?

Daniel Greenfield writing at Frontpage magazine directs us to a brief news story from Presidential candidate Rand Paul’s home town.

Here is Greenfield:

Welcome to Bowling Green, Kentucky, the latest front in the Sunni – Shiite unholy war tearing apart the Middle East.

He then directs us to this news story about how a Shia Muslim claims he was assaulted by a Sunni Muslim in a dispute about their religious beliefs.

Then Greenfield closes with this:

Now how many Sunnis and Shiites do you need for there to be enough critical mass for these conflicts to turn violent? 

Why is this so interesting to me? 

The article does not tell us the nationalities of the two who scuffled, but I will bet a buck they were both Iraqis because we know many Iraqis have been resettled in Kentucky including those two refugee terrorists arrested in Bowling Green in 2011, on trial here in 2012.

At that time there was a glimmer of hope for Senator Rand Paul on this issue as he was very vocal in asking:  Why are we bringing so many Iraqis to the US?  See this post!  I was originally thrilled!

Now he has completely shut up on the issue!

By the way, Kentucky is an important refugee resettlement state and neither Senator Mitch McConnell or Senator Paul say a word about it.

The US State Department is admitting almost equal numbers of Shiite and Sunni Iraqis to the US, so you can expect more conflicts ahead!  Is that insane or what!

Again, we don’t know if these two Bowling Green squabblers are Iraqis, but this (below) will give you some idea of our foolishness.  I couldn’t get the State Department data base to open just now, but found my notes from a search  I did at the beginning of March.

From 1/1/14 to 2/28/15 (a little over a year) we admitted 22,446 Iraqis to your towns and cities.  The State Department data breaks them out by religion as follows:

Moslem (that is how they spell it): 351

Moslem Shiite: 7,747

Moslem Suni: 9,176

So the Muslims totaled:  17,274

All the other religions, or no religion accounted for the remaining 5,172 (23%).

So, is this kerfuffle in Kentucky the tip of the iceberg?  We’ll see!

See our Kentucky archive here, and don’t miss this post about the suspicious donation (for Syrian refugees) to a contractor from a Muslim “charity.”  See also Kentucky mosques cropping-up due to growing Muslim refugee population.

Make this issue (immigration and national security) a top concern for 2016 Presidential candidates!

If you have an opportunity to meet candidates ask them what their position is on refugee resettlement (look for a deer-in-the-headlights look!).

See NumbersUSA scorecard, here.  Paul has an abysmal D+ on immigration and jobs.

About the photo:  One of the earliest important stories we ever wrote nearly 8 years ago was about Grover Norquist lobbying for large numbers of Iraqi refugees to be resettled in the US.   And, see Grover here with RINO pals (including Jeb Bush) just last year urging the GOP to support the idea of more refugees coming to America!  Grover has been spreading the lie that Ronald Reagan signed the Refugee Act of 1980 into law. He is wrong.  It was outgoing President Jimmy Carter who is responsible.

Rand Paul: Why are we bringing in all these refugees (Iraqis in particular) and putting them on welfare?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 7, 2015

I know you are saying that isn’t the Senator Rand Paul you know now, but it was the Senator Paul in the wake of the discovery of Iraqi refugee terrorists found in his home town and convicted in Kentucky just a few years ago.

As a matter of fact, I was thrilled!  He was the first sitting US Senator I had ever heard speak publicly and critically about the Refugee Resettlement Program of the UN/US State Department.

Norquist and Paul

Did Grover Norquist get to Rand and tell him to shut up about Iraqi refugees in addition to supporting amnesty?

 

 

Here is our complete archive in which we mention Paul’s statements on refugees.  Please note that his home town of Bowling Green is completely swamped with refugees and we have a lengthy archive on problems there as well.

Here is what we said in 2013 when the Senator was roundly criticized by a Leftwing immigration reporter at the HuffPo.  This is what Huffington Post reporter, Elise Foley, quotes Paul saying:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said on Wednesday that the U.S. should be skeptical of accepting refugees, from Iraq in particular, because they take welfare and could plan attacks on American soil.

[….]

“It’s one thing to have a big heart and invite people to our country, and if you do it in a small fashion, the churches and the people take care of them, that’s one thing. But like in my town in particular, they bring ’em in and there is someone whose job and expertise is to sign them up for welfare as soon as they get here.”

There is more and links to other information on Paul.

So what happened to that Rand Paul?

Grover was a promoter of Iraqi refugees!

When we began writing RRW in 2007, one of our first stunning revelations was that Republican guru Grover Norquist was running around Washington lobbying for the US to bring in the Iraqis.   120,000 plus Iraqi refugees later, they are coming in at a rate of 20,000 a year (approximately 68% of them are Muslims split fairly evenly between Shiites and Sunnis).

They are receiving a boatload of welfare (see beginning on page 107 of the latest ORR Annual Report to Congress) higher than many other refugee ethnic groups.  So Senator Paul was right about that—we bring’em in and sign’em up for welfare!

For new readers, our complete Grover Norquist archive is here.

If you happen to see Paul on the campaign trail, ask him why he dropped his earlier criticism of the refugee resettlement program which is changing American towns and cities under the direction of the United Nations and Obama’s State Department.

Grover Norquist does real damage to himself in Glenn Beck interview, five years after chalk board incident

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 26, 2015

I hope you caught Glenn Beck’s Blaze TV tonight and Beck’s interview with Mr. Open Borders himself Grover Norquist (hat tip: Kelly).  We have a large archive on Norquist the Washington Republican political guru and friend of Karl Rove who many believe (and Beck confirms) has a wide variety of questionable Muslim Brotherhood-connected friends.

Go here to Blaze TV and look for a replay.  For a sharp Washington-insider Harvard grad, Norquist looked pretty wobbly.  And, Beck had clearly done his homework.

Our interest in Norquist began in 2007 when he was pushing his ‘conservative’ pals (at his famous Wednesday meeting) to support an expanded Iraqi refugee resettlement program.

More recently he lined up a stellar list of Open Borders Republicans to push for more refugees to America generally (presumably looking for cheap labor for his industry clients).  See our report here.  His list of fellow refugee pushers included Jeb Bush.  We only ever saw the ‘big’ news at Human Rights First!

In 2010 Grover disses Glenn Beck’s chalk board gift!

For a laugh…..

I wonder does Glenn Beck know that when he gave his famous chalk board to Grover (Americans for Tax Reform) after Beck’s CPAC speech in 2010 that Grover put it in a closet in his office and obviously made sure a reporter knew about that!

This is from Potomac Tea Party Report dated March 26, 2010 (exactly 5 years ago today!) and it’s a good thing I captured the text of the story from the Washington Examiner, because the linked article is now gone.

Here is a very telling little bit of information from the Washington Examiner yesterday.  Seems that when Glenn Beck gave the keynote speech at CPAC  this past February he gifted his chalk board to Americans for Tax Reform.  But, after making a show of its arrival at ATR’s famous Wednesday meeting, ATR President Grover Norquist has since banished it to a closet.

The Washington Examiner (story no longer available):

Put it in the same category as those cat sweaters your grandmother would get you every Christmas.

Fox News pundit Glenn Beck gifted his infamous chalkboard to the Americans for Tax Reform at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference for use during its Wednesday meetings.

It’s the thought that counts, right?

“Every Wednesday in Washington, all the conservatives meet to decide what they should be doing in the weeks ahead,” David Keene, chairman of the American Conservative Union, said to close Beck’s speech. “This is going to be going to the site of the Wednesday meetings to remind us what we should be doing in the weeks ahead, and it will be put to use there.”

And just as Keene said, within days a courier delivered the large chalkboard to the downtown location of Americans for Tax Reform.

But was it actually put to use?

Well, it’s sitting in an audiovisual equipment closet attached to the conference room that hosts about 200 people every week.

[….]

However, the group’s president, Grover Norquist, isn’t exactly a fan of political talk shows.

I guess he still isn’t!

See our complete Grover Norquist archive, here.

Jeb Bush reasserts open borders position, but look who he is talking to! (besides Grover Norquist!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 20, 2015

Nothing new here but the admission by Bush that a flood of immigrants will squeeze the American middle class.

What interested me was the group he was talking to—-Chicago Council on Global Affairs.

Presidential material? Are you confident he could keep us safe and wouldn’t put his big money donors before you, the American people?

I told you about them here (Globalists seek to change Nebraska and the ‘heartland’ with immigrants) last fall.  Michelle Obama is on the board and they had just put out a study about how to change the ‘Heartland’ by bringing in more immigrant labor.   Here is one thing I said then:

Reports like this one—Growing the Heartland—will be used as propaganda to convince American towns and cities that it is inevitable (and necessary!) that third-worlders will be moving in.   It is really all about global corporations, like meatpackers, needing cheap and abundant labor, and Leftists needing Democrat voters!

Here is the news at Breitbart about Bush’s speech at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs  (I won’t give the hat tip, but just what the hat-tipper said of this news: “What a pantload!”):

On Wednesday, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush reiterated that immigration reform is “hugely important” for America even though the country’s middle class, as Bush acknowledged, is getting more squeezed.

“Immigration reform for our country is so hugely important. Race is not a national identifier in this country. We’re 34 flavors. We’re as diverse as diverse can get,” Bush said during a question-and-answer session after his foreign policy address at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. “And that is a huge strength looking over the horizon right now, where multiculturalism kind of creates pockets of despair in Europe in many cases.”

This makes no sense!  If multiculturalism creates pockets of despair in Europe, it will surely do that here—it is such a crock to promote this “melting pot” myth.  We won’t melt when the numbers are too high!

Bush, who has been praised by top GOP 2016 donors [it is all about the money!—ed] for leading on the amnesty issue, said “the United States has this potential of being young and dynamic again” and, “if Europe embraced that similar kind of approach, I think that they could see some economic growth as well.”

But his response to an audience member’s question on the “permanency of poverty” displayed that his support for massive comprehensive amnesty legislation may make it tougher for Americans to move up the economic ladder.

The Grover Norquist connection……

For new readers and those who may have forgotten (I won’t let you forget!).  Jeb Bush joined Grover Norquist and other RINO Republicans in telling the GOP to embrace MORE REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT, here, last year.

Human Rights First praised the signers of Norquist’s letter (remember Refugee Resettlement not only supplies third world laborers for big businesses, but tens of thousands each year are Muslim supposed ‘refugees.’).  Here are those ten RINOs:

Washington, D.C. –   As Republican leaders in Congress work through the party’s immigration reform priorities, ten of the nation’s most prominent Republican leaders released a statement today that urges the party to recommit to upholding the United States’ position as an international leader in protecting refugees fleeing oppression and seeking asylum.   The statement is signed by former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez; former Florida Governor Jeb Bush;  former Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Tom Ridge;  Kansas Governor Sam Brownback; former Senator Mel MartinezGrover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform;   Suhail A. Khan, chairman of the Conservative Inclusion Coalition; Jim Ziglar, former Commissioner of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS); Alberto Mora, former General Counsel of the Navy; and Dr. Paula Dobriansky, former Under Secretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs .

Breaking News!  Norquist says he isn’t a Muslim agent of any sort:

And, check this out today, Norquist comes out swinging against those he calls “stalkers” who question his connections to Islamist movers and shakers.

Click here for our complete Grover Norquist archive which goes back to at least 2008 (maybe 2007) when Norquist was promoting the resettlement of Iraqi refugees to the US.

New information on Grover Norquist’s connections to influential Islamists

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 10, 2015

If you just finished reading our previous post on an Iraqi refugee creep from Kentucky and still have a smile on your face after clicking our last link in that post, wipe the smile off your face!

Grover Norquist, a long time Open Borders lobbyist apparently has some explaining to do! Photo and earlier story on Norquist at Frontpage magazine: http://www.frontpagemag.com/2012/raymond-ibrahim/a-disturbing-event-the-american-conservative-union-embraces-an-islamist/

From Rebel Pundit comes some amazing news about Republican tax guru Grover Norquist and his connections to Islamist sympathizers in the US (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum).

So why do we write about Norquist? because back in our first months as a blogger (more than seven years ago) we told you that Norquist was pushing for Iraqi refugees to be admitted into the US in large numbers.  The majority are Muslims in need of extensive taxpayer-funded social services.

Why, we asked, does an anti-tax crusader want to add to our tax burden?

More recently we told you about Norquist and Suhail Khan rounding up a bunch of RINO Republicans to once again push for more refugees to be admitted to the US.

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush signed the letter!

Does Jeb know who he is consorting with???

By the way,  Norquist’s letter erroneously stated that Ronald Reagan signed the Refugee Act of 1980 into law (he knows better—it was Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden and Pres. Jimmy Carter who are responsible for the law).

I’m not going to tell you what Rebel Pundit has unearthed—-read it yourself!

Our archive on Grover Norquist is here.

Grover Norquist is at it again! Pushing for more immigration for America, fewer jobs for American workers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 15, 2015

The great American tax guru (as a traitor to middle class workers) is busy lobbying again for more cheap labor for his business clients.  In February he goes to Lincoln, Nebraska for a big pow-wow that includes big business interests and representatives of religious and progressive groups.

To our many new readers:  Truthfully, I am sick of writing about Norquist (our lengthy archive on Norquist is here) who I first mentioned at RRW in 2007 when he was running around Washington DC demanding that the US start bringing in the Iraqi ‘refugees’ (most of whom we have learned since are Muslim Iraqis).

More recently we wrote about his cabal of Republican (RINOs) promoting more refugee resettlement to America with cheers from Human Rights First.

Note that Jeb Bush us part of Norquist’s gang of ten.

Before you read about the latest Norquist campaign, be sure to read what former Rep. Frank Wolf said about him on the House floor in 2011 when Wolf questioned his Muslim (and other unsavory) connections (see my post at Potomac Tea Party Report).

Reader Robin sent me this news about the busy business lobbyist, Mr. Norquist, in Washington this week, here at Politico.

That news item leads us to the Lincoln Journal Star story.

Grover Norquist, a national conservative leader with a big streak of renegade in him, is coming to Lincoln to promote immigration reform, which he supports primarily on economic grounds.

Norquist is president of Americans for Tax Reform, an advocacy group he founded in 1985 at President Ronald Reagan’s request. ATR works to limit the size and cost of government and opposes higher taxes at the federal, state and local levels.  [How about the taxpayers who foot the bill for $billions for refugees each year?—ed]

His conservative credentials include his membership on the boards of the National Rifle Association of America and the American Conservative Union.

His most famous quote is: “My goal is to cut government in half in 25 years, to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.”

Newt Gingrich called Norquist “the person who I regard as the most innovative, creative, courageous and entrepreneurial leader of the anti-tax efforts and of conservative grassroots activism in America. … He has truly made a difference and truly changed American history.”

But Norquist parts ways with many conservatives on the issue of immigration.

In an essay he wrote in 2013 for The Guardian, Norquist wrote, “People are an asset, not a liability. The United States is the most immigrant-friendly nation in the world and the richest country in the world. This is not a coincidence. Those voices that would make us less immigrant-friendly would make us less successful, less prosperous and certainly less American.”

He endorsed immigration reform legislation that would allow 11 million undocumented immigrants to earn legal status by submitting to a background check to weed out those with felony convictions, and paying taxes and a fine.

[….]

Norquist was invited to speak at an invitation-only reception and dinner Feb. 2 at Lincoln Station by a coalition of businesses, people, lawyers and interest groups: the Nebraska Restaurant Association, the Nebraska Retail Federation, Nebraska Cattlemen Association, League of Women Voters of Lancaster County, Prairie Fire — The Progressive Voice of the Great Plains, Brown Immigration Law LLC of Lincoln and Justice for Our Neighbors of Nebraska, a nonprofit in Omaha.

Amazing how these groups are so willing to follow Norquist’s lead, do they have any idea who they are following?

Norquist and the disastrous Arab Spring!

I just came across this interesting little nugget:  Did you know that Norquist was one of the “smart” people asked to weigh in on who should be Time’s Person of the Year in 2011.  Look who Norquist nominated—Mohamed Bouazizi—good choice I guess if you are a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer (as their fortunes were rising).  However, didn’t work out too well for them ultimately, did it?  And, why should Norquist, a defender of the taxpayer, care so much about what was happening in Egypt?

Conservative lobbyist Grover Norquist nominated the Tunisian vegetable vendor whose horrific self-immolation Norquist credits with setting off the revolutions that would become known as the Arab Spring. Norquist said, “I think he set off something that wouldn’t have happened without his act, at least not when it did.”

Do you live in Lincoln?  Looking for something to do on Feb. 2nd—you should be out there protesting Norquist (the darling of the US Chamber of Commerce)!

Note to Nebraskans!  Our top post in recent days has been this one about Syrian Muslims being resettled in Nebraska.

Senator Jeff Sessions immigration handbook!

If you haven’t seen it, see the champion for workers of America handbook on the immigration crisis facing our country.  Between progressive open borders advocates and big business, no one but Sessions is standing for the squeezed American worker!

Senator Rand Paul has a lot of nerve to question French immigration policy!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 10, 2015

How can a man whose own home town was traumatized by the arrest of Muslim refugee terrorists, and whose home state of Kentucky is a prime US State Department resettlement site for Somali, Iraqi, Burmese and soon-to-arrive Syrian Muslims have the audacity to tell the French that they need to re-think their immigration policy!

Frankly, I had a lot of hope for Senator Paul a few years ago when he raised some hell in Washington over how those two Iraqi (now convicted and in prison) terrorists slipped through Homeland Security’s hands (they lied on refugee applications, big surprise!) when one of them had fingerprints on IED fragments from Iraq.  He is the only Senator I have seen even make a peep about the Refugee Program.

Maybe I’m the only one who remembers Senator Paul’s brief stand!  See posts here here, here and here.   After 2013 (what! when 2016 was around the corner?) it sure sounds like Paul himself erased concerns for Kentucky and America right out of his mind!

Grover Norquist and Senator Rand Paul. For your own good Paul, get away from Norquist! Photo: http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/dgreenfield/norquist-bloomberg-and-rand-paul-team-up-for-dont-call-it-amnesty/

Why doesn’t Senator Rand Paul get it—if he came out strongly right now about American security as it relates to LEGAL and illegal immigration he would have a shot at the Presidency in 2016!

This is the news that got me steamed this morning.  From CNN:

(CNN)Sen. Rand Paul thinks that France needs to rethink its immigration policy in light of the recent terror attacks.

The Kentucky Republican said Thursday that intelligence and surveillance tactics should still be employed to prevent terrorism, but argued “there’s some policy changes, though, that could be better.”

“I think also you got to secure your country. That means maybe that every Muslim immigrant that wishes to come to France shouldn’t have an open door to come,” he said on Sean Hannity’s radio show, referring to Islamic radicalization in Europe.

Paul suggested such policy be considered by France and “many of these other countries that had old colonies in predominantly Muslim areas.”

He does throw in a comment about our border security and student visas (big deal), but more than any other Senator in Washington, maybe even more than Senator Jeff Sessions (who doesn’t say much about refugees), Paul knows about the dangers and the cost of our refugee program.

Paul, a potential presidential contender, argued that “it’s also my concern here,” saying the U.S. border “is a danger to attack” and criticizing what he described as a poorly monitored student visa program.

See our extensive archive on Kentucky and its many problems with refugees, here.  Paul’s home town of Bowling Green was until recently a preferred resettlement site!‘  Sometime after 2009 it was taken off the list, why? because it is so overloaded with refugees that the feds and their resettlement contractors are now focusing on other Kentucky cities like Louisville (where they eat camels!).

About the photo and Senator Paul’s association with Grover Norquist.  In 2007 Norquist (Americans for Tax Reform) was promoting, with his inside-the-beltway Republicans, the idea of bringing in Iraqi refugees.  More recently Norquist and Suhail Kahn ginned-up a letter from a group of RINOs to bring in more refugees generally.

Jeb Bush signed that letter asking that we resettle MORE refugees.

Note to Paul—get away from Grover Norquist!

Human rights activists complain about stricter asylum rules…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 30, 2014

….but don’t get too excited about the possibility that the Obama Administration is seeing the light because as we learned last week, thousands of illegals who entered the country this past summer aren’t even showing up for court!

Thousands have just disappeared into the woodwork of America presumably planning to wait it out until Obama and Congress give them amnesty!

From the Wall Street Journal (hat tip Richard):

Watch Eleanor Acer of Human Rights First testify before the House Judiciary Committee on Asylum fraud last February. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mxDxtHAszU

Immigrants who enter the country illegally are becoming less likely to be deemed eligible for asylum, as federal authorities tighten standards amid an increase in Central American migrants this year.

As an initial step to request asylum, apprehended migrants who say they are scared to go back to their home country are screened to determine if they have “credible fear” of persecution or torture. In July, the most recent month available, 63% of those who claimed they were afraid to return were found to have met that criterion, down from 83% six months earlier, according to a report released to immigrant-rights groups by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The decline comes after the agency’s Asylum Division toughened the criteria its officers use during the interviews. The goal of the new guidelines, according to an agency official, is to ensure that immigrants with little to no chance of obtaining asylum in immigration court are quickly sent home.

Immigrant advocates say the tougher screening criteria are preventing many immigrants from being able to make a case for asylum before a judge.

“It’s turning away people who may very well have been entitled to asylum protection,” said Eleanor Acer, refugee protection director at Human Rights First, a New York-based nonprofit group.

The Asylum Division is one of many federal agencies that have been taxed by an influx of tens of thousands of immigrants who have illegally entered the country from Central America this year, many saying they were seeking refuge from gang violence and poverty. From October to June, the Asylum Division received 36,334 credible-fear claims from immigrants, surpassing the 36,035 in the 12 months of fiscal 2013, data from the office shows. Immigrants from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras accounted for the majority of the claims.

The office is responsible for screening migrants apprehended at the border, asking, for example, whether they are being persecuted because they belong to a specific social group or feel threatened because of their race or religion. If their claims are credible, the immigrants are referred to immigration court, where a judge ultimately decides whether they qualify for asylum or other protection. Immigrants who go through that process, which can take years, are sometimes released in the U.S. until their cases are resolved.

Unaccompanied children arriving from Central America don’t go through the credible-fear process, as they are routed to the court system directly.

Now be sure to see Hot Air last week where we learned that 70% of the families ordered to appear for a hearing never showed up!

DHS secret revealed: Tens of thousands of illegals released during the border crisis didn’t show up for their immigration hearings

Big smooch from Eleanor to Grover!

About the photo and Acer’s testimony to Congress:  I had to laugh when I watched the clip because she praises and enters into the record the Grover Norquist/Suhail Khan Republicans-want-more-refugees letter which we reported here.
