On the surface it might appear that the Trump Administration has won an important victory in the Supreme Court which ruled just a few hours ago on the so-called “travel ban” Executive Order, but in my view the Court has created an enormous bureaucratic mess, not to mention having re-written Refugee law! What were they […]
About Ann Corcoran
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/ .

According to AP at ABC News, here, they have likely already decided and an announcement will come next week. There are two major issues at stake (maybe more than two, but two for me!). The first is whether the President has the authority to ban, for a limited time, all entry to the US from […]
I’m asked all the time: What can I do? What can I do? This is an excellent example of the kind of thing you can do. This is a list of talking points thoughtfully prepared by Brenda Arthur of the Charleston, WV Act for America chapter. As a citizen activist, she put some serious time […]
Can you believe it! Reuters is reporting on four anonymous leakers (inside and outside the Department of State) who are saying chief White House aide Stephen Miller is trying to skew numbers to make the refugee program look more expensive than they claim it is! Most interesting to me is that a former State Department […]
Mark Steyn tells Tucker Carlson: “I’m a demography bore” That comment was in response to the latest (this time failed) terror attack in a Brussels train station yesterday. He went on to say: “Demography explains most of everything.” Yes, agreed Carlson. Steyn related his comment as well to the close Georgia House race yesterday to explain […]
The first World Refugee Day was held on June 20th, 2001 (3 months before 9/11) and it is used as a focal point, for open borders activists and leftwing media, around which to organize a political message. So, you have probably noticed many stories in the last few days about the need for more third world […]
Illegal alien from El Salvador allegedly murdered Nabra Hassanen a Muslim teenager walking with a group from the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center. Diversity is supposed to be beautiful, right? Immigrants who come to the great American melting pot are supposed to love and respect multiculturalism, right? Unlike in Europe, we do everything […]
Thanks to reader Denise for making a very cool flyer to remind you to call your Washington representatives to counter the lobbying campaign by the refugee industry this week. They are ginning-up thousands of calls to Congress in advance of World Refugee Day tomorrow. This is a very handy way to get the phone numbers […]
Our friend Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily tells us what he thinks of the Trump Administration’s weakness on the refugee issue. From WND. Read it all, but here is the wrap-up: Hohmann does not believe Trump is taking the refugee resettlement issue seriously enough. The veteran journalist warned in his book there is a […]
When refugees were initially being placed in the county where I live (now more than 10 years ago), our community’s first impression was that the ‘Christian’ resettlement agency—the Virginia Council of Churches—was basically dropping off a couple hundred refugees, placing them in deplorable housing, and then not providing them with some of their basic needs. […]
Check out the news here at Australia’s Nine News. So here’s my idea! Donald Trump could get the last laugh by cancelling the “dumb deal” Obama agreed to that would bring up to 1,250 of Australia’s unwanted so-called ‘refugees’, presently held in offshore detention facilities, to (your!) American towns. Bringing them here would save Turnbull’s political […]
It is not a surprise that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled against the President and his legal Constitutional power to keep America safe. I’m in a hurry this morning to get to my chores, so just want to give you Daniel Greenfield’s reading of the decision here at FrontPage magazine: 9th U.S. Circuit Court […]
….And, it has nothing to do with any Trump Administration plans. Other actors have stepped in to begin to make it happen and as the story tells us, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees had no comment. Before critics jump in, it should be none of our business if these families want to put their […]
That is what Refugees Deeply is reporting here. (To learn more about the pro-more-refugees site, go here.) Trudeau and Trump earlier this year. Obama junior (Justin Trudeau) is ‘welcoming’ the Muslim world to Canada while President Donald Trump has appealed the so-called travel ban case to the Supreme Court. One of the countries whose citizens Trump […]
This is an excellent use of 6 minutes of your time! I don’t know this program, but thank Paul for sending the youtube clip from The Rebel. I’m guessing that what Faith Goldy learned about Canada’s new 40,000+ Syrian population applies to America’s flow as well. We have followed Boy Trudeau’s rash Syrian resettlement program […]
