Breitbart roundup: Refugee contractors whine as revenue plummets

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 3, 2018

Michael Leahy at Breitbart has pulled together in one article a litany of complaints from representatives of the refugee industry.

The newest data that came in here on the first of March will surely set off a new wave of temper tantrums aimed at Trump. But, I will remind readers that the contractors who must now fire low level workers in the industry and close small offices, have brought this on themselves by their nearly complete dependence on the US Treasury and their laziness about raising private money.

Why bother with chump change when the taxpayer spigot is wide open? See my post here.

David Miliband the king

Not crying for you! International Rescue Committee CEO David (Moneybags) Miliband pulls down an annual salary approaching $700,000.  Think how many refugees and low level staff could be sustained on that!

Even if the refugee numbers being admitted are low, there are still plenty of refugee lost souls they brought in last year or the year before who could use their help (if they had private money! Private ‘religious’ charity!).

(It isn’t really about humanitarianism, these are organizations working to change America by changing the people.)

Here is how Leahy begins his roundup of complaints:

The federally funded non-profits known as voluntary agencies (VOLAGs), who collectively have received more than $1 billion annually to resettle refugees, are whining now that refugee admissions, and their own associated revenues, are down dramatically during the first five months of FY 2018 under the Trump administration.

Despite a slight uptick in refugee admissions in February to 1,927, the total number of refugee admissions during the first five months of FY 2018, which began on October 1, is only 8,635, according to the State Department’s interactive website – the lowest number of refugee admissions for the first five months of a fiscal year in more than 15 years.

If the average monthly arrival rate of 1,727 during the first five months of FY 2018 continues at the same pace for the final seven months of the fiscal year, total refugee admissions for the 12 months of the full fiscal year will be under 21,000, less than half the ceiling number of 45,000 President Trump announced in September.

The nine VOLAGs (Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, the International Rescue Committee, HIAS, Church World Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, Ethiopian Community Development Council, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (Catholic Charities), and World Relief),*** all of whom are almost entirely dependent on federal funding tied to the number of new refugee arrivals they resettle around the country through local affiliated agencies, are now in the midst of a cash crunch unheard of in the agency.

Consequently, they and their political allies are complaining loudly and often about both Trump’s lowered refugee ceiling admission number and the increase in the time and length of the Department of Homeland Security’s security vetting of potential refugees.

One of those complaining is Bob Carey:

Bob Carey, a prominent critic of the recent reduction in refugee admissions by the federal government, is a prime example of the cozy revolving door the Trump administration has disrupted.

Carey spent most of his career as an executive with the International Rescue Committee, one of the nine VOLAGs supported almost exclusively by government funding. While there, he served as chair of Refugee Council USA. [And headed the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement in Obama’s second term.—ed]

Much more here.

Doing well by doing good!

Think about this: the IRC is a federally funded non-profit. A Member of Congress/Senator makes $174,000 a year! A Supreme Court Justice $213,000!

Where is Congress? The refugee slowdown has demonstrated that the Refugee Act of 1980 set up an insanely flawed system that must be dumped now!

***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.

If you are wondering, I post this list every chance I get because we have new readers daily and because I want all of you to know that for reform to be possible these nine fake non-profits have to go.

Kansas: Refugee office to close in “slaughterhouse” city

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 2, 2018

From time to time I’ve posted stories on refugee resettlement offices closing due to the fact that fewer refugees (aka paying clients) are now arriving in the US (see post yesterday with latest numbers), but I don’t post all of them.

david Miliband manahattan

Moneybags Miliband (here in Manhattan) makes nearly $700,000 annually as CEO of the IRC, but they can’t afford to keep this Kansas office open.  Fine by me, but do any of you humanitarians out there find this a bit disconcerting?

This one caught my eye because I have written many times over the years about Garden City, Kansas and its Tyson Foods plant that has attracted cheap immigrant labor for years.

Rarely do you see such a direct connection drawn between “slaughterhouse” jobs and the US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP).

This time it is the giant International Rescue Committee closing its doors in GC, while its CEO (a British national based in Manhattan) pulls down a salary in excess of $600,000 a year (here).

Changing the heartland, one meatpacker at a time should be the USRAP’s motto!

From KCUR 89.3:

A humanitarian [ha!ha!—ed] group that helps refugees settle in western Kansas among plentiful slaughterhouse jobs is shutting down its office in the region amid changing rules that welcome fewer newcomers to the country and the state.

The International Rescue Committee, or IRC, says a falling number of refugees prompted the agency’s plans to shutter its Garden City office at the end of September.

Kansas took in 580 refugees in the 12-month period that ended Sept. 30, compared to 914 the year before. IRC officials said they expect the drop-off to look even more dramatic this year.

That trend reflects tightening U.S. State Department guidelines that make it harder for refugees to seek sanctuary in the United States.

 

In addition, a State Department spokeswoman said that in December the department told resettlement agencies it would withdraw funding from sites that take on fewer than one hundred refugees each year. The federal government gives those local agencies about $2,100 for each refugee.

This next bit was news to me.  I had no idea local hospitals were carrying some of the refugee care load jointly with a federal resettlement contractor! Why isn’t Tyson Foods taking care of the needs of its workers?

Many refugees in western Kansas turn to Kearny County Hospital in Lakin, Kansas, for health and social services. The hospital, in turn, depends on the IRC to take care of essential services such as food, housing, education and job placement, said hospital CEO Benjamin Anderson.

Garden City USA: Immigration to the Heartland

Orientation for Somali workers at Garden City Tyson Foods plant.

[….]

Anderson said the IRC plays the primary role for helping refugees in the area, and when the organization’s Garden City office closes, his hospital may have to take over some of its services.

Garden City is home to many refugees, including a large Somali community, which was the target of an alleged bomb plot last year. That incident and it’s upcoming trial in March have brought renewed attention to the city’s wide range of immigrants — a portion of whom are refugees — from Mexico, South America and Africa. In the local school district, for example, English is a second language for nearly half the students.

So who is paying for refugee support services so that Tyson Foods has a ready supply of cheap labor—local taxpayers!

But, don’t get too excited about a possible slowdown of needy people arriving in Garden City because we expect to hear that Tyson Foods will bus in migrants from other places to satisfy their desire for “slaughterhouse” workers.

Hey, I’ve been referring to them in a more sanitized way—meatpackers—I like this more descriptive word—slaughterhouse!

Refugee contractor CEO (moneybags) Miliband moans: shocking decline in Muslim arrivals

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 27, 2018

The nine federally funded refugee contractors*** never miss a media opportunity.

Last night I reported that several of them will be protesting against the President at the White House today (first anniversary of first ban) and others, like the International Rescue Committee are moaning to the media with press statements like this one:

IRC: Trump Administration on Track to Miss Own Target for Refugee Admissions

First, let’s set the record straight!

When the President sets a CEILING for the coming year, it is just that—a CEILING, or CAP—it is not a TARGET that must be reached.

Although the contractors, for the many years I have followed the program, want it to be a TARGET and so they continue to speak as if it is (as in this headline).

Here is some of what CEO and British national David Miliband wants the media to know:

What a surprise! Obama admitted many more Muslims than Trump!

International Rescue Committee (IRC) resettlement assessment shows disturbing data for vulnerable populations fleeing conflict and persecution

miliband laughing

Miliband not laughing now? I wonder will he have to take a pay cut as the numbers of paying clients (aka refugees) decline. He makes a whopping $671,749 annual salary running a federally funded ‘non-profit.’   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/12/23/al-qaeda-and-isis-wont-love-us-if-we-close-more-refugee-offices-waaahhhh/

Based on current trends, the IRC projects 21,292 refugees will be resettled in the United States in Fiscal Year 2018, far below the Trump administration’s 45,000 refugee cap.

By this time in FY 2017, Syrians fleeing the war comprised 15 percent of arrivals in the U.S; in FY 2018, they comprise 0.5 percent.

13 percent of refugee arrivals in FY 2018 identify as Muslim, compared to 48 percent in FY 2017.

New York, NY, January 25, 2018 — On the eve of the anniversary of the Trump administration’s travel ban, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) today released projected figures for refugee resettlement in the United States. The IRC’s analysis shows the nation’s resettlement program on track to resettle only 21,292 refugees in Fiscal Year 2018, well below the administration’s 45,000 cap, and far below the historic annual average of 95,000.

[…..]

The analysis is based on data covering the period Oct. 1, 2017, through Jan. 23, 2018.

Said David Miliband, IRC president and CEO –

“The shocking figures we are releasing today show that the U.S. is on track to cut by three quarters the number of refugees allowed into the country for resettlement.

This is a dramatic shift from 30 years of bipartisan practice, and represents an unprecedented assault on U.S. global leadership in this area.

[It still has bipartisan support from members of Congress/Senators who want cheap labor for their big business constituents.—ed]

“It is no exaggeration that the future of America as a home for refugees is now on the line. Congress needs to hold the administration to account for missing its own target, announced just four months ago. [It is NOT a target.—ed]

“The administration’s determination to squeeze the life out of the refugee resettlement program will harm the lives, and life chances, of some of the most vulnerable people on the planet, and it sets a terrible moral example to the rest of the world.”

[….]

Shocking Decline in Muslim Arrivals

791 refugees identifying as Muslim comprise only 13 percent of all refugees admitted to the U.S. so far in FY 2018.

By comparison, 14,496 people identifying as Muslim, or 48 percent of all refugees, were admitted to the U.S in FY 2017 in the same period. [Obama’s last months in office.—ed]

13 percent represents a figure well below the historic average; Pew Research analysis found that in the 15-year period from 2002 to 2017, Muslims made up about 33 percent of all refugees admitted to the U.S.

Yikes! I had no idea that the number was so high—33% of all refugees since 9/11 have been Muslims. Wow!

See my complete archive on Miliband (friend of Soros and Hillary) by clicking here.

***LOL! I get to post the contractors twice today.  My goal is to be sure new readers (and long time readers) know each day who is responsible for resettling refugees in your towns while acting as political agitators at the same time.  These are the nine federal contractors that monopolize all US resettlement. Number in parenthesis is the percentage of federal dollars (your money) going to their budgets in the last complete analysis I did.

Don’t miss this post about Church World Service yesterday—community agitators of the most loving kind!

IRC’s Miliband: our organization’s very existence is being threatened

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 8, 2018

David Miliband the king

Miliband in The Guardian when he lost a bid to be the head of the UK Labor Party to his brother “Red Ed.” He subsequently took the sweet gig in Manhattan with the IRC. Photo and story:  https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2011/jun/10/david-miliband-labour-leadership-speech

 

According to a global development news site’s interview with David Miliband, CEO of the giant International Rescue Committee (one of the nine contractors*** which place refugees in your towns), Miliband is worried for the future of his organization and presumably the refugee industry in general.

Not just for one year, or four years but going forward.

He doesn’t say it explicitly but what has happened over the last ten years is a gradual erosion of a feel good reaction by the general public (around the world!) when they hear the word “refugee” making it harder to sell resettlement almost anywhere.

Why the “backlash?”  Whose fault is that?

It is Miliband’s fault, and others like him, who pull in huge salaries (Miliband makes over $600,000 annually) and at the same time lecture the average citizen, whose life changes when his town is overloaded with impoverished people, about being racist and xenophobic.

Adding insult to injury it is the average American who is paying for it all with our tax dollars. (The IRC is over 66% funded from the US Treasury.)

It is about operating in secrecy and giving off airs that the leaders of the refugee industry are smarter than average Americans, so those Americans don’t need to know about the plans for their cities and towns (and countries in some places).

It is about painting every refugee as pure as the driven snow (and just like us) instead of ever admitting that there are some rotten apples in the barrel and some cultures will never be compatible with western civilization.

It is about using refugees for their own political aims (not to mention as cheap labor for globalist friends!).

It is about bragging that they are the humanitarians and as such have more rights than the rest of us to speak about, and to determine, immigration policy.

Frankly they are elitist and arrogant and clearly have learned nothing about what the election of Donald Trump means.

Here is how Devex begins a long report on complaints from Miliband.

It is not a “demonization” of all refugees! Look in the mirror, it is really you Mr. Miliband and other refugee contractors (and your hard Left politics) that is hurting the image of most refugees.

NEW YORK — A “demonization” of refugees is threatening the International Rescue Committee’s basic mission and existence, suddenly placing them “on the defensive,” said IRC president and chief executive officer David Miliband in an interview with Devex.

This tightening shift in political tone and policy from the United States and Europe has practical effects on country offices, but also presents an urgency to the basic workings of the International Rescue Committee, which reached 26 million people in 2016, with international programs that totaled about $570 million. [We learn later in the article that the IRC has 15,000 employees!—ed]

“Suddenly, we’re on the defensive,” to back the basic premise of refugees, a bedrock of America’s beginnings, Miliband says.

[Do we really need a British national lecturing us about America’s beginnings?—ed]

“That’s very striking. It prompts some people to want to support us, which is good, but it also creates a climate in which our clients [here he means refugees—ed] are more afraid, [in] which our staff are more afraid,” Miliband said in a recent interview in his New York office. [What is the staff afraid of, losing their jobs in Manhattan?—ed]

“And so the big question is not just a one year question, or a four year question. The very existence of the [IRC’s] program is under question and so it’s part of our job is to raise the alarm about what’s happening.”

Raise the alarm?

How about changing how you treat Americans as racists and idiots (to be kept in the dark) because we don’t see immigration policy the same way you do?

There is much more about the arrogant David Miliband, here, if you feel like reading it!

Not much new there for us as you can see in my huge file on Miliband by clicking here.

***These are the nine (arrogant and elitist) federal refugee contractors. The Refugee Admissions Program will never be seriously reformed as long as this system of hiring contractors whose income depends on the number of refugees being admitted to the US continues.

Federal contractor removes director of its San Diego office in wake of investigation

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 19, 2017

See my previous report on what is alleged about the International Rescue Committee (IRC).  (This is David Miliband’s organization.)

And, if you are thinking, ho hum, so refugees got placed possibly illegally in inadequate housing (as some of you previously commented), I need to explain why this case is significant.

It is surely not a one-off case, but what is important is that a mainstream media outlet has actually had the nerve to investigate a darling of the left—the US Refugee Admissions Program, and its contractor, the IRC.  You might not have sympathy for the refugees, but you should.

Your critical aim should be at the federal policies, the bureaucrats, and the contractors*** hired by the feds to bring the refugees to your towns, not the specific refugees who took advantage of what Congress and the White House have offered them.

We need more investigations (like this one) by mainstream media of questionable practices by the contractors in order to further the education of voting Americans!

Number of bodies resettled, more important than quality of care.

So here is the update from Inewsource.org:

A local refugee resettlement agency is searching for a new executive director little more than a week after the organization’s national office found the affiliate had violated housing policies.

David Murphy

I’m guessing that Murphy was sent more refugees than the office could handle in the first place.

A spokesman for the International Rescue Committee‘s headquarters in New York confirmed David Murphy is no longer the relief agency’s executive director in San Diego, but would not address additional questions. A posting for the position appeared online last week.

Earlier this month, the national office said the San Diego affiliate had engaged in housing placement practices that were “inconsistent” with its policies, but declined to discuss its findings further.

The agency’s statement followed a KPBS investigation first published in July that found seven families, who arrived during a rush of refugees last year, living in El Cajon apartments with more people than were listed on their leases, a potential contract violation.

[….]

The resettlement agency receives a one-time stipend of federal dollars to cover housing and other needs for refugees…

Continue here.

***These are the federal contractors paid by the head for refugee “clients” they place (secretively!) in your towns and cities. Congress should be investigating how they are using the millions of federal dollars they receive annually.  The San Diego housing irregularity is, I suspect, the tip of the iceberg!

High paid Brit lectures us about the American story…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 15, 2017

This is rich!

I’ve told you about David Miliband in many previous posts.  He is the former UK Labor Party Foreign Minister (his brother is known in the UK as “red Ed”) who came over to New York to head up the fabulously wealthy International Rescue Committee where he is sucking down a salary of $591,846 annually.

miliband laughing

David Miliband: Have I got a cool gig or what? Living in Manhattan, deciding which third world migrants will be seeded into American towns, hobnobbing with Hillary, schmoozing Soros, smacking down Donald Trump, weighing in on British politics and being handsomely compensated by American taxpayers! Wow!

(The IRC is the wealthiest monetarily of nine federal refugee contractors, although we are told that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops handles a higher volume of refugees each year.)

Btw, if you follow Miliband even tangentially you will see he is still busy mucking around in British politics.

Here is some Lefty website called Death and Taxes on British national Miliband and that meany, Donald Trump:

“It’s not an exaggeration to say the very existence of refugee resettlement as a core aspect of the American story, and America’s role as a global leader in this area, is at stake,” David Miliband, president of the International Rescue Committee said.

I’m willing to give up our supposed “global leader” role, aren’t you?  (But, wait, didn’t we just hear from Human Rights Watch that Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon are the global leaders giving protection to refugees?).

Here is erudite reporter Tosten Burks at Death and Taxes on Trump White House aid Stephen Miller (LOL! this was my tip-off about the nature of this ‘magazine’):

During a meeting at the White House on Tuesday, Homeland Security officials proposed a 2018 cap of 40,000, the Times reports. Racist booger Stephen Miller has pushed for an even lower cap of 15,000, sources said. No final decision has been made.

This post is filed in my ‘Laugh of the day’ category, here.

El Cajon again! Refugee contractor accused of skirting housing rules when placing large families

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 10, 2017

Sheesh! A few minutes ago we told you about the huge US refugee contractor—the IRC—working with Starbucks to find refugee employees to make your morning coffees in the San Diego area, and up pops more news (not good news!) about the IRC there.

 

 

This sort of news will result in a cry for more start-up money for refugees.  It will never result in formal questions being asked by Congress about whether we are bringing in more refugees than we can afford!

From KPBS San Diego:

Three large refugee families that a local nonprofit helped resettle at an El Cajon apartment complex are being asked to move because they have too many people living in their homes.

Uh-oh!

They came forward after KPBS aired an investigation nearly two weeks ago about other refugee families who said the same resettlement agency — the International Rescue Committee in San Diego — put them into too-small apartments by encouraging them to sign leases that omitted the names of some occupants.

IRC’s national office in New York has said it is investigating the recent claims made by refugees. In an email Tuesday, a spokesman said the office is aware of the new cases, which it is also looking into, “and is supporting our clients through their next steps.”

What say you, David? IRC CEO David Miliband giving George Soros their highest award in 2013. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2013/11/09/federal-refugee-contractor-gives-freedom-award-to-george-soros/

The three families, who moved into their two-bedroom apartments last year, said they received the 30-day notices to vacate a day after KPBS’s story was published on July 27. A manager for the complex, which is under new ownership, said only five people are allowed in a two-bedroom apartment. Two of the families have eight members, while another has seven.

Lalmir Hamdard, a refugee from Afghanistan who arrived here in September, said he relied on an IRC translator to help him sign the English-language lease. A copy of the document provided to KPBS showed five names on the lease instead of all eight members of his family.

“At the time, I didn’t understand it in English — even my daughters with little English didn’t understand,” he said in Farsi through a translator. “I only understood that it said here, ‘Write this, sign here, do this.’ And I did.”

Two neighboring Syrian families who speak Arabic shared similar stories. They would have to find a three-bedroom apartment, which would be more expensive, and they are already having trouble keeping up with rent on their two-bedroom units. However, even a larger apartment may not be big enough depending on a complex’s policy.

More here.

Nice to see some real investigative journalism for a change, but reporter needs to ask….

Where is the US State Department that oversees agreements with its contractors (the IRC is one of nine that contracts with the federal government to place refugees) which surely include rules about how many tenants are in each apartment or house?

We have a huge archive on the IRC and its head honcho—David Miliband—here. Go here to see my latest financial  accounting for the IRC.

Hungarian Prime Minister calls out George Soros in state of the nation speech

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 26, 2017

“It’s hard to think of any citizen of the world who would have done more to deserve the award.”

(Former President Bill Clinton upon presenting Soros with the IRC’s “Freedom Award” in 2013)

The incomparable bloggers at 100% Fed Up ask, when will American political leaders expose Soros’ huge impact in directing America’s political landscape through hundreds of groups funded by the Hungarian-born George Soros?

The answer is not likely soon since even Republican leaders are lapping up his money—see Breitbart here earlier this month: ‘Records: Soros Fund Execs Funded Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John McCain, John Kasich, Lindsey Graham in 2016.’

Refugees are Soros’ invasion army!

Here is 100% Fed Up:

Will anyone [in] our US government call out and expose the effect 187 radical organizations directly funded by leftist George Soros have on our nation?

orban-and-soros

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban goes after Soros in state of the nation address. Hey Prez. Trump, invite Orban to White House! Send a message that nationalists stick together to defeat globalists!

When will our elected officials start exposing his influence Soros’ large tentacles have on influencing the Democrat Party and anarchist groups in America, leading to riots and unrest by paid protesters in America?

Will the world continue to cower when it comes to the secret dealings of radical globalist George Soros, who is fighting for open-borders in Europe and in the US? Or will we start to really expose him by openly discussing his actions and revealing the truth about his “seemingly benign” organizations like one brave Hungarian prime minister is doing?

Hungary’s populist prime minister on Friday lashed out against billionaire financier George Soros, claiming he and groups backed by him want to secretly influence the country’s politics.

In his annual state of the nation speech, Viktor Orban said groups partly funded by Soros, who was born in Hungary, needed to be made transparent and identifiable.

“Large-bodied predators are swimming here in the waters. This is the trans-border empire of George Soros, with tons of money and international heavy artillery,” said Orban, who received a Soros-funded scholarship as Hungary was transitioning from communism to democracy in the late 1980s.

“It is causing trouble … that they are trying secretly and with foreign money to influence Hungarian politics,” Orban said.

Continue reading here.

Now go here to see the 187 organizations being funded by George Soros and his non-profit empire.

But missing from the list is one of nine major federal resettlement contractors—-the International Rescue Committee. (Others of the nine may also be getting booty from Soros, but the IRC is out front about it, as we have reported ad nauseam!)

We have many posts on the relationship, click here, to learn more.

However, I just now went back to 2013 to see exactly what the IRC said about Soros at its New York City gala to honor him.

screenshot-357

Clinton with David Miliband, former British Foreign Secretary and now CEO of the IRC feted George Soros in glitzy NYC gala.

From Forbes:

So while CBS CBS +1.00% anchor Scott Pelley, the annual benefit’s emcee, kept things moving, and saxophonist Joshua Redman and pianist Aaron Goldberg provided lively entertainment for the 1,000 attendees, it was the honorees who were the real stars of the evening.

[….]

The night’s headline honoree was yet another accomplished former refugee, hedge fund billionaire George Soros, who escaped from Hungary in 1946. He was lauded by Bill Clinton (“It’s hard to think of any citizen of the world who would have done more to deserve the award,” the former president said), his son Jonathan and United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power.

[….]

Upon receiving the award (a photograph of Einstein taken by the late Fred Stein, an acclaimed photographer whom the IRC helped flee Nazi Germany), Soros somberly declared that Syria was a “glaring failure of international governance” and pressed the IRC to take action. The event raised $3.5 million to help. True to form, Soros immediately pledged $1 million.

See who else was there, click here.

Send a message to Donald Trump! 

Tell him to roll out the red carpet for Viktor Orban and watch the leftwing media rage.  LOL! Maybe do it on the evening of the Correspondent’s shindig!  Click here for WH website comments page.

Oh, the wailing has begun, refugee contractors NOW trying to raise private money to stay afloat

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 4, 2017

President Barack Obama’s administration told resettlement organizations to staff up in anticipation of an increase in refugees this year!

Mark Hetfield told the AP

In the wake of only a 120-day slowdown for refugee resettlement, the nine major federal refugee contractors are moaning about how they will have to cut staff as they lose MILLIONS of federal dollars they receive to place ever increasing numbers of third worlders into unsuspecting American towns.

mark-hetfield-hias-logo

This is an Associated Press story filled with extremely useful information, here is the first part of it.  All of you in ‘pockets of resistance’ should keep the whole article.

We gave you a list of local sob stories here the other day, here are the major contractors.

From AP at Crossroads Today (emphasis is mine):

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Refugee resettlement organizations are bracing for significant funding cuts and possible layoffs over the coming months during President Donald Trump’s temporary refugee ban.

The agencies receive a certain amount of federal dollars per refugee they help resettle, which means they would lose a key source of funding unless the Trump administration provides funds in the interim during the 120-day temporary halt to refugees entering the U.S.

catholic-charities-logo

Catholic Charities USA says the executive order will cost the organization millions of dollars and put at risk about 7,000 jobs out of the 54,000 jobs at their agencies around the country, according to spokeswoman Patricia Cole.

 

So now they attempt to raise private Christian charity, why didn’t they do this long ago! The refugee program was supposed to be a public-private partnership, but the public share increases annually as the private share shrinks!

AP continues….

The group launched an $8 million fundraising campaign this week to help replace the funding it expects to lose during the four-month moratorium.

Catholic Charities agencies resettled roughly 23,000 of the nearly 85,000 refugees that entered the U.S. last year, Cole said. Most of them were women and children.

British national David Miliband gives Soros the IRC’s top award—the 2013 Freedom Award (LOL! not fake news!). Miliband said Soros has made a “tremendous commitment to the advancement of human rights, social justice and democracy around the world.”

It is one of nine agencies*** that handle refugee resettlement. Another agency, International Rescue Committee is asking its donors to help raise $5 million to ensure its 29 offices around the country can continue to support refugees already here.  [Hey, here is a thought maybe David Miliband could take a pay cut, he gets over a half a million as CEO of this contractor. The budget for the IRC is more than a half a billion annually —ed]

Making matters worse for agencies is that President Barack Obama’s administration told resettlement organizations to staff up in anticipation of an increase in refugees this year, said Mark Hetfield, president of HIAS, formerly the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society.

You must read it all! Go here.

See that many of the employees they will let go are refugees. So next time you see their mumbo-jumbo about how they help refugees get jobs, remember many are getting jobs to advance the contractor’s agenda.

They want Trump to advance them money as Bush did after the 9/11 slowdown!

Don’t do it Donald, they are too big, too bloated, too lazy to raise private money, and they operate with secrecy and arrogance toward local citizens wherever they place refugees!

Readers, you can tell President Trump what you think here.

Be sure to tell him that these very same ‘non-profits’ whining for your tax dollars are deeply involved in plans to demonstrate against his administration, see here.

Getting new housing in your town? Then you will get refugees!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 8, 2017

If Trump doesn’t turn off the spigot, both of refugees and funding/regulations for low income housing (Obama’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing!), then expect refugee contractors to find your town!

Changing the heartland one town at a time!

Tyson Foods is the top employer in Garden City, Kansas and the primary reason Somalis and other refugees move there. If you have a Tyson Foods plant (or any BIG MEAT plant near where you live, you will have refugees too.

Here we have news from Kansas where a federal refugee contractor crows about all the new housing that could be available for refugees in Liberal, Dodge and Garden City, Kansas.

Governor Brownback recently withdrew the state from the Refugee Admissions Program, but that means nothing unless he is willing to sue the federal government on states’ rights grounds.

His withdrawal means that contractors, like the International Rescue Committee, will move in to run the program with Washington. As we said here, Brownback cannot be trusted on this issue!

From KSN.com (Refugees may double for southwest Kansas in 2017):

GARDEN CITY, Kan. (KSNW) — Southwest Kansas welcomed 67 new refugees to the area in 2016, just shy of the 80 the International Rescue Commission [Committee—ed] was authorized to re-settle, but that number could soar this year.

Any Longa, director of the International Rescue Committee office in Garden City, says she is working to expand housing opportunities for refugees. http://www.gctelegram.com/news/local/ugandan-natives-share-sorrows-humor-of-moving-to-america/article_0639af00-30b8-55c9-9028-5c39ede42b6b.html

“We do have the capacity to settle 140,” said Amy Longa, who manages the southwest Kansas site of the Commission. “I do not know how many we’ll end up settling by the end of the fiscal year.”

It depends on many factors at play in the international resettlement efforts, but the number of new refugees settling in Dodge, Liberal, and Garden could potentially double this year over last year.

[….]

The housing shortage in the region is an obstacle, but it is being addressed.

“We’re now seeing a little more opportunity with the recent building,” said Carol Davidson with Garden City Community Development, “and we also have plans in the future, this next year 2017, we do have a development that’s going in.”

“19 duplexes, 12 fourplexes, and five 36-unit apartment complexes,” said Cory Hodapp, who owns the company building a new housing complex in Garden City. “We’ll have half of the duplexes and half of the fourplexes complete this year.”

Good news for the IRC and Tyson Foods!

It’s good news for the IRC, which competes with the market to help find homes for refugees.

“What we have been working on the past two years is reaching out to landlords and creating partnerships with landlords to create housing,” said Longa. “Not only in Garden City, but in Dodge and Liberal as well.”

As we have reported on many previous occasions, the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program works closely with large companies like Tyson Foods and others to supply them with cheap immigrant labor.  Those laborers are further subsidized by your tax dollars including those used to expand low-income housing.

So, don’t fall for the humanitarian mumbo-jumbo!  Refugee resettlement is an industry!  Chambers of Commerce want it, housing developers want it, big industries want it for cheap labor, local mosque leaders want it, politicians want it (money!), and the resettlement contractors get jobs and nice salaries all while pretending to wear a white hat of humanitarianism!

We have many previous posts going back several years on Garden City, click here.  And, see Garden City’s wikipedia page where someone had to be sure that the recent arrest of three Kansans who allegedly planned to blow up one of the Somali apartment complexes has been added to the page.

There is another article about Kansas and refugees, here, in recent days.  You might want to have a look at.
