Editor’s note: Before I get to Spencer’s harrowing story, for those who have asked, just a note that if I am absent from the computer these days as I was on most of Mother’s Day and yesterday there could be several reasons. On Mother’s Day I enjoyed myself! Then yesterday, I had internet connection issues. […]

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/ .

At first I didn’t think they were going to get to the crux of the matter when Tucker Carlson last night grilled Steve Forester, an attorney for the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti, about the upcoming Trump decision about whether to extend Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Haiti (we mentioned it here the other day). […]
There is a short news item at Delaware Public Media about how a Jewish refugee agency in Delaware is waiting for seven families (likely Muslim families based on their country of origin) they hope they will soon be settling in Delaware—the First State. So I thought I might revisit a topic I haven’t discussed for […]
Hey, since many of the refugees and other immigrants now causing expensive infectious diseases to spread in the state are a result of Obama’s migration policy, maybe he could contribute his $3 million speaking fee to Minnesota as a partial payment to handle the crisis! Remember this story! Gov. Mark Dayton: If you don’t like […]
Changing the subject? Unbuttoned to mid-chest: We are told that Mr. Cool forgot his tie. If you are a former President of the U.S. staying in what must be the most expensive hotel in the city, isn’t it possible to send out for a wonderful selection of beautiful ties? Just in case Islam-generated conflicts run […]
Just when you thought you had had it with FBI Director Comey he admits something that you would never expect a politically-correct Washington insider to reveal. Comey grilled on the Hill: All they ever want to hear from Comey is information about Hillary and how the Russians elected Trump. No mention that I’ve seen anywhere, […]
Invasion of Europe news… The first thing I thought of when I heard the news that Marine Le Pen had lost to the globalist Emmanuel Macron was Mark Steyn’s predictions in America Alone. If you have never read it, you must. And while you are at it don’t skip The Camp of Saints ((over 40 […]
Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart has been doing great work digging in to the Minnesota Somali measles outbreak which we first reported here on April 20th. Health officials in Minnesota predict it is going to get worse before it gets better and you can bet it is costing the state taxpayers a bundle to track […]
President who? This budget “deal” makes me wonder if Obama is still in the Oval Office! The so-called budget deal being ironed-out to fund the government to the end of the year commits billions to the refugee program. You might think that Obama was back in the White House and that Donald Trump never campaigned […]
Since we are coming up on 100 days I was anxious to see how Trump was doing with his campaign promise to (at least) put a moratorium on the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program for 120 days to review how refugees are vetted and look to assure “extreme vetting” was put in place. My guess about […]
By voting against a bill that would block life insurance payments to terrorists killed while killing Americans, Minnesota legislator Ilhan Omar shows her allegiance to her people. From Leo Hohmann at WND: She burst on the scene last August when she upset a 44-year incumbent Democrat in the Minnesota state primary elections to become the […]
This article at Mic Daily makes it sound like it is all about a fear that vaccines cause autism in vaccinated children. However not mentioned is the Islamic prohibition on the use of vaccines. Here is the story at Mic Network Inc. Golly gee, why can’t we get our message heard, say health officials. Minnesota’s […]
And, that is how asylum is supposed to work. Anyone who meets the legal definition of a refugee*** is supposed to seek asylum in the first safe country they reach—not go asylum-shopping throughout the continent as we saw in yesterday’s report on the rush to the Canadian border by many migrants illegally in the US. […]
You’ve heard the news, we’ve reported it for months, that fearing President Trump, migrants are flooding to the Canadian border into Prime Minister Trudeau’s waiting and welcoming arms. Here we have PBS interviewing a couple of Africans who feared if they stayed in the US, Trump would be rounding them up to return them to […]
Also heating up is the exchange of words between the so-called rescue ships and the EU’s migration authority. EU agencies accuse NGO migrant rescue boats of creating a “pull factor” which only encourages more people to try to reach Europe in anything that floats. I will never let you forget! Hillary Clinton is directly responsible […]
