As I mentioned yesterday, when I reported that true-believer, Lawrence Bartlett, Director of Refugee Admissions at the U.S. State Department, had been reassigned to Puerto Rico (voluntarily we assume), resettlement contractors are in a panic. At Jewish Telegraphic Agency (hat tip: ‘badboylookout’) we learn that the State Department is in talks with its contractors about which sites to […]

Eight years ago it came to our attention in Washington County MD that a non-profit group (Virginia Council of Churches) had been bringing refugees into the city of Hagerstown (county seat) for a couple of years. Some problems arose and citizens started to take an interest and ask questions about how this federal program works. Our local paper had no interest in finding the facts, so we decided to find them ourselves.
One of the many startling things we found out about this very quiet effort is that these non-profit groups bring to the US on average each year 15,000 (FY90-FY03) Muslim refugees from the Middle East, Africa, the Balkans, etc, almost completely funded by the US Government through grants and contracts to these non-government agencies. Of the 168 refugees brought to our county since 2004, 125 are Muslim. Although we all have sympathy for persecuted and suffering people there are real questions to be answered about the wisdom of this policy.
It turns out that there are hotbeds of this refugee resettlement controversy throughout the US. We have identified some of those. Because the issue is much more complicated than we initially realized, we have set up this online community organizing center at https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/ .

The other day when we reported that the Heritage Foundation got it so wrong with its “Roadmap for Reform” one of my first thoughts was it is because they clearly are living in a D.C. bubble and have no idea of what is going on in ‘flyover country.’ I think it is because the mainstream media isn’t reporting on […]
Pressure from Brussels is being ratcheted up against the so called Visegrad three (there were four!) to take thousands of those illegal migrants that have ‘made their way’ across the Mediterranean or came in via Turkey to Greece and are now piled up in Italy or Greece. I’m calling them migrants because in most cases […]
“We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country.” – U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley The Human Rights Industrial Complex (HRIC) must be going nuts! Thanks for the tip from reader ‘heymister24’ who sent this overnight. Here is Deutsch Welle‘s version of the news (reported in […]
The President now has completed the first two months of what will be his first full year in admitting refugees to the US and we see numbers are dramatically lower. In fact they are so low that if the present pace continues until the end of the fiscal year, September 30th, less than 20,000 could […]
Thanks to reader Ron for sending this recent (September 2017) Briefing paper for the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The focus of the report is to promote the idea that moving migrant labor freely around the world and encouraging remittances to be sent back to the home country will alleviate world poverty. Basically it […]
And, I think the refugee industry wants to keep it that way! (Think about the enormous stonewalling going on in St. Cloud for instance!). How many times over the years have I struggled to try to answer your questions about how much all of this is costing state and federal taxpayers? Now, I have a better understanding […]
Longtime readers know that I’ve had a side interest in food stamp fraud, specifically trafficking in food stamps. This kind of fraud doesn’t involve purchasing unapproved items with food stamps as you might think, but it’s about selling ones benefits for 50 cents on the dollar. It works like this: customer comes in with benefits, […]
Thanks to several readers who sent it, here is yet another reason for the U.S. government to cut off funding for refugee resettlement groups who have become out-of-the-closet political agitation groups. Mark Hetfield Longtime readers know that HIAS receives millions of taxpayer dollars to place refugees in unsuspecting towns and cities and they have led the […]
Although the story is headlined…. Canada Attempts To Deport Illegal Somali Immigrants ….the article makes the case that the Canadian government is not naming those countries, but obviously someone is naming the countries as we see in the headline and the last paragraph! The United States is listed as one country not willing to take […]
We told you on Saturday that in order to hammer home the idea that Muslims are victims in the age of Trump, CAIR Minnesota held a public meeting at the St. Cloud library where they presented a panel of Japanese Americans and asked—could this happen here? Of course the ‘this’ is the incarceration of tens of thousands […]
The story is here at KOIN.com: (Hat tip: Michael) PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — FBI agents arrested a Portland man Thursday for reportedly producing child pornography after a criminal complaint filed against him alleged that he approached 2 young girls via an app. According to the criminal complaint, Juan “Carlos” Ramon is accused of contacting 2 Louisiana girls, ages […]
A non-profit group called Humanwire based in Boulder, Colorado was allegedly the piggy bank for the group’s founder—Andrew Baron. How many more ‘non-profits’ have been set up to take advantage of gullible donors responding to the refugee ‘crisis’ around the world? Watch Baron in September trying to explain-away the Denver Post story including bashing his whistleblower employee. […]
This is the cold hard truth…. When the number of devout Muslims increase to a certain level in any city or country in the western world, a tipping point is reached. It is not about economic costs to communities, and not about the degree of vetting the migrants receive, it is all about demography, Islamic […]
Do you remember the program the Obama State Department created out of whole cloth in 2014 when it took it upon itself to write refugee law without the Congress? It was called Central American Minors or CAM for short and was supposed to help the minors escaping poverty and gangs in Central America get into the […]
