‘Welcoming America’ to host German officials to show them how great our refugee integration is!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 15, 2017

Alert: This is NOT fake news!

We have told you about ‘Welcoming America’ previously.  We first heard about them in June 2013 when we attended a meeting the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement was hosting in Lancaster, PA.  It is where we first heard about refugee “seedlings” planted in communities and where we learned that some of us asking questions about the program and how much it costs were referred to as “pockets of resistance.”

Welcoming America is the ‘brainchild’ of David Lubell. https://www.welcomingamerica.org/content/david-lubell-0

See that early warning post here.

‘Welcoming America’ got its start with Soros money. Propaganda is their specialty!

Now we see that ‘Welcoming America’ and other groups are bringing a delegation of German officials here to learn how great everything is in cities overloaded with refugees and how well the refugees are “integrating” (they never use the word assimilate).

From Digital Journal we learn that the delegation will go to Washington, DC (only a tiny number of refugees are ever placed in DC!), then on to Detroit, Nashville, Salt Lake City and Los Angeles.

If you are a community leader in one of those cities and are concerned about the refugee overload in your cities, try to figure out some way to get the attention of the German officials because you can bet that ‘Welcoming America’ is going to give them nothing but a glowing report on how well refugees ‘integrate’ and how everything is peace and love!

Here is the story:

Apr. 14, 2017 / PRZen / WASHINGTON — Twenty-five German integration professionals and public officials will travel to the United States, from April 30 to May 9, to learn firsthand how American cities approach community integration and resettlement as part of the Welcoming Communities Transatlantic Exchange (WCTE).

German citizens will be told that everything is just wonderful with refugees in America! What is wrong with you people!

The WCTE, which is now in its second year in 2017, is a professional exchange program for integration practitioners and leaders from the United States and Germany who work to integrate refugees and immigrants into their local communities. It annually brings together over 40 individuals from nine communities to expand their networks and share best practices and innovative approaches to integration initiatives at the local level.

This upcoming 10-day visit will provide individuals representing the German communities of Düsseldorf, Freiburg, Kreis Düren, Leipzig, and Münster with a wide-ranging look into how American cities welcome and integrate newcomers into their communities through a series of site visits and meetings with local governments, refugee resettlement agencies, interfaith groups, local schools and employers, among others.

The program kicks off in Washington, D.C. where the delegation will take part in meetings designed to provide a national perspective on issues of refugee resettlement and U.S. immigration policy. The group will then travel in three cohorts to Detroit, Nashville, and Salt Lake City before convening together in Los Angeles. In each city, the German delegates will have opportunities to meet with their U.S. counterparts and learn about the many different local approaches American communities apply to address the challenge of sustainably integrating newcomers.

You can bet that your citizens’ group that is questioning the cost and issues of security and cultural disruption will not be included in the show and tell sessions!

And, if you are new to the issue, we have a huge archive on the ‘Invasion of Europe’ where you can find out what a disaster for Europe that Germany has created with its open-door policy toward migrants.

New refugee seeding site: Youngstown, Ohio

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2016

We have been trying to identify the new resettlement sites the US State Department has been bragging about.  They are very secretive about where they want to go next, but they need new sites as they wear out their welcome in long established sites and because Obama has determined that the numbers are being vastly expanded for FY2017 which is already underway.

tom-mrosko

Mrosko was involved with the Welcoming Cleveland initiative we mentioned here in 2013. There are about 600 refugees being placed in Cleveland now. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2013/07/16/tom-negri-and-welcoming-america-are-planning-to-change-cleveland-starting-tonight/

There is no list one can access (they have mentioned 47). There are only stories like this one that sneak into local news that tip us off as to where they want to go next.  For new readers, Catholic Charities would be a subcontractor of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The Catholics in Youngstown must have run out of poor Americans to care for there.

From WKBN News  (hat tip: Joanne):

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Catholic Diocese of Youngstown held a community forum to discuss the thought of bringing refugees to Youngstown.

About 200 people, both for and against the idea, attended the meeting at Saint Columba Hall Wednesday night.

It was an opportunity for those who are enthusiastic about the possibility of refugee resettlement, as well as those who may be resistant to the idea, to learn more about the issue, ask questions and engage in a dialogue.

[….]

“Maybe 25 to 30 people, which is not that many, and help them by being involved in the work of the Catholic Charities here,” said Cleveland Migration and Refugee Services Director Thomas Mrosco.

On that last point, we have been led to believe that a new resettlement site cannot be established unless it starts with 50 refugees in the first year.  Then, like it or not, the pattern is that the next year they will get 100-150 until they are like the town of Lancaster, PA be swamped with 700 needed third worlders arriving every year!

See our ‘Ten things you need to know if you are ‘welcoming’ refugees for the first time.’  Once a site is opened, there will be no going back and your town will not get to pick from the ethnic groups the DOS is bringing in.

Here is the original list of sites, click here.  And here, below, are the new sites we have identified so far:

Asheville, NC

Rutland, VT

Reno, NV

Ithaca, NY

Missoula, MT

Aberdeen, SD

Charleston, WV

Fayetteville, AR

Blacksburg, VA

Pittsfield, MA

Northhampton, MA

Flint, MI

Bloomington, IN

Traverse City, MI

Watertown, NY (maybe)

Imperial Beach, CA mayor withdraws from “Welcoming City” program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 24, 2016

This just goes to show what a handful of citizens can do when they put their minds to it!  In California, no less! citizens learned that their mayor and council had signed a “Welcoming cities” proclamation last month.

Having none of it, the citizens pushed back and just yesterday, the Mayor rescinded the proclamation.  Hat tip: Brenda.

Here is one news story at KUSI News two days ago.

IMPERIAL BEACH (KUSI) — The mayor of Imperial Beach is under attack. A small group of people are accusing him of inviting refugees with an official proclamation.

The mayor himself is a little shocked. He believes it’s a big misunderstanding.

It may be a laid back little beach town, but Imperial Beach suddenly finds itself in the middle of an international hot topic.

Last month, Mayor Serge Dedina issued a proclamation, declaring Imperial Beach to be a “Welcoming City.”

The “Welcoming Communities” program is an Obama initiative intended to resettle large numbers of refugees from Syria, the rest of the Middle East and Latin America in cities and towns across America as part of his “fundamental transformation.”

At the time, Mayor Dedina thought it was pretty harmless, but some people believe it goes deeper than that.

They’re suspicious that the words, “welcoming city,” is another way of saying, “sanctuary city.”

No sense wandering in the weeds regarding the definitions because for the average American it is pretty much the same thing!  Welcoming cities are sanctuary cities and vice versa.

Yesterday, the mayor put out this press release:

Is Welcoming America “collaborating” in your town with your elected officials/businesses

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 29, 2016

Oh boy, the newest buzz word in the refugee industry is “collaboration” (gee, is that what is driving the Twin Falls mayor and council too, they want to be like Boise?).

Here is a story on Cleveland where we are told that the refugees are better off than refugees anywhere else in America! Yes, you got it! The rest of you (200 towns and cities) better shape up!

REfugees welcome Ohio

She doesn’t understand that big businesses and Chambers of Commerce need people like her to shill for them as they need the cheap immigrant labor that refugees supply! Watch Maggie here (and don’t miss the Palestinian activist at the end!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qirFHWtSsr0

And who says Cleveland’s are the best, none other than Refugee Services Collaborative of Greater Cleveland. Go here to see what/who that is!  I bet if you researched each group making up the “collaborative” most would be living off your tax dollars.

Read it all!

Go here to read about when Welcoming America first showed up in Cleveland in 2013.

Welcoming America is collaborator-in-chief!

Yesterday a reader sent me an alert from Welcoming America which says the deadline has been extended one week for you to get your grant requests in to them to see if you will be one of the big winners—you will get federal $ to be trained on how to collaborate to make your town the most welcome town it can be!

In the past year, Welcoming America (WA) received an Office of Refugee Resettlement grant to distribute to the those lucky winners who submit the best applications for projects that seek to develop strategies to (LOL! my phrase) ‘mind meld’ your community, to turn it from a town filled with a bunch of hateful unwelcoming redneck boobs to a town filled with love and understanding where multicultural joy reigns supreme for ever and ever.

Here is WA which received just short of $300,000 of your dollars for the project (go to USA Spending.gov).  Deadline was this coming Friday (July 1), but has been extended for another week (what? not enough takers?):

Collaborations for Welcoming Refugees Deadline Extended to Friday, July 8

Apply for an exciting new opportunity to advance your local collaborative through customized coaching and training from Welcoming America. Local collaboration shows great promise for coordinating, expanding, and scaling refugee integration and welcome in communities. Many communities such as Boise and Cleveland have had great success in fostering greater community support for refugees through local community collaborations.

Collaborations for Welcoming Refugees participants will receive personalized technical assistance and will connect with and learn from other collaboratives participating in Collaborations for Welcoming Refugees. Whether your collaborative is just starting out or is more seasoned, apply now to be part of this new effort. Learn more and apply for this exciting opportunity by Friday, July. [They obviously left off the 8—ed]

They are called collaboratives in case you missed it.

Go here to see what you have to do to get a fistful of taxpayer dollars to promote the colonization of your town and thus help change the demographic makeup of America so that big businesses/Chambers of Commerce, like the members of Global Cleveland (a member of the Cleveland COLLABORATIVE) can increase their bottom lines!

Note to do-gooders! You and the refugees are being used!

Is yours one of the top cities targeted by globalists and immigration activists for third world resettlement?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 6, 2016

A reader sent this article from a Partnership for a New American Economy (Bloomberg, Rupert Murdoch etc) working with federal contractor ‘Welcoming America’ (archive here) to target cities (some counties/states) ripe for flooding with migrants of all sorts.

bill-marriott-225x225

Marriott wants maids! One of the fat cats working to bring in immigrant labor to compete with Americans is Bill Marriott, Chairman of the Marriott Corp. and one of the leaders of this propaganda effort. I avoid Marriott hotels in my travels. http://www.renewoureconomy.org/featured-members/bill-marriott/

I wrote about them here  at RRW before (and here at American Resistance), but am finding that since new readers arrive every day, I need to occasionally repeat vital information.

Here are the cities selected where open borders activists and other local groups will be given grants to soften up the community to accept the joys of multiculturalism being brought to them largely by nine federal resettlement contractors.  Watch for propaganda campaigns that involve some elected officials in local government.

And, ask yourselves why these financial fat cats care so much!  The answer: it is all about cheap immigrant labor and the free flow of it around the world for big corporations represented by these fat cat globalists.

They must tamp down the resistance they are meeting from average working Americans who don’t want to pay for their greed through job losses for Americans and taxpayer-funded welfare goodies to immigrants!

Watch for the PR media campaign in these cities:

Akron and Summit County, OH
Anchorage, AK
Birmingham, AL
Brownsville, TX
Columbus, OH
Detroit, MI
Fargo, ND
Houston, TX
Indianapolis, IN
Kansas City, KS/MO
Lancaster, PA
Los Angeles, CA
Macomb County, MI
Nashville, TN
New Orleans, LA
Phoenix, AZ and Arizona State
Pittsburgh, PA
San Jose, CA
Salt Lake County, UT
Upstate NY Region (Syracuse/Buffalo, NY)

 

Continue reading here.

We are up against a lot of BIG MONEY hiding behind a veneer of humanitarianism.  It would be so interesting to see who these globalists are supporting in Election 2016!

By the way, Grover Norquist works closely with this cabal, see here.

Big business and Welcoming America working together to change your towns

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 29, 2016

Be sure to see my post just now at American Resistance 2016!

Rupert Murdoch

Rupert Murdoch calls the shots at Fox News and the Wall Street Journal. BFF David Lubell of Welcoming America.

We learned that Rupert Murdoch’s Partnership for a New American Economy is working in collaboration with Welcoming America (Obama’s pals) at that Open Borders Leftwing community organizing group we have been writing about ever since 2013 when we first heard about them in Lancaster, PA, here.

It is really quite stunning to me to learn that the Open Borders activists (LOL! the “humanitarians”) are working in concert with Chambers of Commerce and large global corporations to assure that the business community has a ready supply of cheap (slave!) labor!

No wonder they hate Donald Trump so much.

Breitbart does a good piece on ‘pockets of resistance,’ Welcoming America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 3, 2015

David Lubell with label

Lubell and his community organizers have more work cut out for them selling ‘diversity is beautiful’ after San Bernardino slaughter.

There is so much happening, we can’t keep up.

So, just now had a few minutes to read Michael Patrick Leahy’s article on Welcoming America’ and its role in tamping down ‘pockets of resistance’ to the resettlement of more refugees into certain cities and states.

And, wow, impressed that he found some information about Soros’ role in creating ‘Welcoming America’ that had been scrubbed from its website since I reported it in 2013.

Read the article which pulls together in one place some of our best information on the community organizers at Welcoming America and their role in selling the “seeding” of America.

While you are there, be sure to read some of the hundreds of comments as well!

Action Alert:  Call your members of the House and Senate at 202-224-3121 and ask them to vigorously oppose the Refugee Resettlement funding contained in the Omnibus Spending Bill that will be voted on by 12-11-15! Please call by this Friday, Dec. 4th.

Welcoming Communities Campaign announced by White House, government goodies for your “welcoming” town

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 7, 2015

Update October 8th:  Reader Greg sends us this update post from Welcoming America (see it for more cities).

I missed this White House news last month, so thanks to reader Greg for sending it.  And, note to Miranda Blue, here, who seems to think I am making this all up—-that Obama is diversifying your towns and cities and using government goodies to do it!

This is about changing America by changing the people!

Go here to learn more about Welcoming America, which I first mentioned on these pages in June 2013.  By the way, they have long since taken down the discussion on their site about how they got Soros seed money.  Obama’s Task Force on New Americans is here.

Be sure to see also—Obama, big smooch for Lubell, here.

David Lubell with logo

Lubell’s Welcoming America began first in Tennessee as Welcoming Tennessee and with the help of seed money from George Soros expanded to become a national organization and a federal contractor (they get $$$ from the Office of Refugee Resettlement).  They ‘community organize’ to push back where ‘Pockets of Resistance’ form.

From Welcoming America:

The White House today launched the Building Welcoming Communities Campaign, accelerating the growing movement of communities that are becoming more prosperous by embracing immigrants and fostering opportunity for all. Launched during National Welcoming Week, the Campaign is part of a broader package of announcements made by the White House Task Force on New Americans.

Already, 40 early acceptor US cities and counties have already signed on to the campaign, from Pittsburgh to Boise, Atlanta to Detroit. The groups include cities and counties big and small from across the country.

The campaign will help better connect federal resources with local communities in order to expand immigrant integration efforts. It calls on local communities to commit to and act on a set of principles that focus on building inclusive communities that enable all residents to thrive, while advancing immigrant civic, linguistic and economic integration.

Said Welcoming America Executive Director David Lubell, “Communities across the country are already recognizing that they gain an economic edge and invigorate their communities when they create environments where everyone can participate and thrive. We applaud the White House and the New Americans Taskforce for this major boost to the movement of Welcoming communities during National Welcoming Week, and look forward to supporting the federal taskforce and communities in this effort because we know it will help jumpstart economic growth and vitality.”

In November 2014, President Obama created the White House Task Force on New Americans which in April released a federal strategic action plan, Strengthening Communities by Welcoming All Residents: A Federal Strategic Action Plan on Immigrant & Refugee Integration. The Building Welcoming Communities Campaign is a key element of this action plan and the federal government’s strategy to support immigrant integration. As part of this campaign, federal agencies will be leveraging their resources in support of communities to help foster greater civic, economic and linguistic participation. [“Leveraging resources” is code for giving your tax dollars to local governments who toe-the-line on diversifying your town—ed]

Participating communities will also demonstrate their progress along a Welcoming Communities Roadmap, and depending on their level of commitment, will be assisted through a public private partnership which will offer technical assistance and support from federal agencies, as well as from national non-governmental partners led by Welcoming America. The initial national partners for the campaign include National Skills Coalition, NALEO, Cisneros Center for New Americans, World Education Services – Global Talent Bridge, IMPRINT, Welcoming Center for New Pennsylvanians, Partnership for a New American Economy, World Education, YMCA of the USA, NCLR, and the National Partnership for New Americans.

Is your city following the Obama roadmap to diversity?

Allegheny County, PA, Denver, CO, Oakley, CA, Atlanta, GA, Detroit, MI. Philadelphia, PA, Austin, TX, Dodge City, KS, Pittsburgh, PA, Baltimore, MD, Grand Forks, ND, San Francisco, CA, Boise, ID, High Point, NC, San Francisco County, CA, Boston, MA, Houston, TX, San Jose, CA, Buffalo, NY, Lincoln, NE, Santa Fe, NM, Charlotte, NC, Los Angeles, CA, Schuyler, NE, Chicago, IL, Louisville, KY, Seattle, WA, Clinton Township, MI, Macomb County, MI, St. Louis, MO, Columbus, OH, Montgomery County, MD, St. Louis County, MO, Crete, NE, Nashville, TN, Sterling Heights, MI, Dayton, OH, New Orleans, LA, Toledo-Lucas County, OH, Decatur, GA, New York, NY, York, PA.

National Welcoming Week part of PR campaign to soften public up for 65,000 Syrians

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 4, 2015

I don’t think it is any coincidence that community organizers at Welcoming America have chosen mid September to put on “welcoming” events across the country.  They know that this is the month when Obama will tell Congress how many refugees will be admitted in FY2016 which begins October 1st.

Red Green axis

In his book describing the agenda to erase America, James Simpson goes into greater detail about the insidious community organizers at ‘Welcoming America.’

As we have been writing ad nauseum over the last few days, the federal contractors and 14 US Senators (we call them the Senate Jihad Caucus!) want an emergency plan from Obama to open our normal refugee flow of 70,000 (all nationalities) and add another 65,000 Syrians nearly doubling our usual refugee admissions for the year.

You better check out this public relations plan, here at Welcoming America (hat tip: Dick).

Find an event near you during Welcoming Week. Maybe you will find a way to counter the impact—perhaps letters to the editor in your local paper about the strain of bringing in over 100,000 impoverished and culturally diverse people will have on your local communities.

Welcoming America says,

During the week of September 12-20, 2015, Welcoming America and its partners across the country will host National Welcoming Week, a nationwide event that will highlight the contributions of immigrants to American communities. Throughout the country, these events will bring together immigrants and U.S.-born community members in a spirit of unity.

This is all part of Obama’s plan to change America by colonizing your towns and cities with third world immigrants.

I first learned about Welcoming America in June of 2013. Originally funded with start-up money from one of George Soros many groups, they also receive grant money from the Office of Refugee Resettlement (from you that is!).  We were told at that meeting in Lancaster, PA that Welcoming America had been hired by the feds to try to push back against growing “pockets of resistance” (their words!) where citizens were beginning to question the wisdom of bringing more poverty to America.

James Simpson in his book, ‘Red-Green Axis—Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to erase America’goes into greater detail about the players and the funders involved with Welcoming America.

Center for Security Policy releases ‘Red-Green Axis: the agenda to erase America!’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 23, 2015

Many of you have already read our friend James Simpson’s ‘The Red-Green Axis: Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to Erase America’ on kindle, but today the paperback version is available at Amazon, here.

From CSP’s press release:

Washington, D.C.: The Center for Security Policy today released a new paperback version of the monograph by investigative journalist James Simpson: The Red-Green Axis: Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to Erase America.

This report extensively details the networks of radical left non-profits, foundations, government agencies and the personalities behind them. Unbeknownst to most Americans they are using refugee resettlement as a pretext to import waves of immigrants from third-world nations as a key front in Obama’s strategy of “fundamentally PhotoshopScreenSnapz008transforming” America. These refugees have little interest in assimilating. Many are from Muslim countries, view immigration as “Hijra” i.e. a subversive means to invade a foreign nation, and have demonstrated a willingness to either support or engage in terrorism both in America and abroad.

More here.

Now let’s make Jim’s Youtube video go viral! 

See Jim expose the Left’s strategy to erase America!  (I especially like the part about community organizers at Welcoming America.)
