Under President Trump refugee arrivals to the U.S. have dramatically slowed

In advance of a new EO supposedly coming out on Wednesday, checking the numbers this morning here are a few things I learned. Total arrivals this fiscal year (which began on October 1, 2016) are at 36,822.  Last time we checked on 2/23 we were at 36,637. Secretary of State Tillerson and President Trump can […]

Liberals Accept Responsibility for Killers [LARK] program proposed to care for Detained Terrorists

L.A.R.K. stands for ‘Liberals Accept Responsibility for Killers’ This is a joke people! Names have been removed or changed in this internet message that has been making the rounds for years. The letter is attributed to a Canadian Minister of Defense which tells you right away it is a joke (imagine boy Trudeau, or any […]

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, vetoes Refugee Reporting Bill

Bills like these are really innocuous.  They don’t stop any refugee placement in the state, they simply tell state officials and the public who is in the state. The information would aide local officials in determining school capacity, housing availability and other welfare services that would need to be provided to these legal immigrants. From […]

Japan holds firm, admits only TINY number of refugees

I haven’t written about Japan for awhile, and since we have so many new readers, I figured it was time to point this out (again)—Japan only takes a tiny number of refugees! And, consequently, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees has been haranguing Japan for years to open its doors (and begin diluting their culture!) […]

All they needed to do to save Europe from invasion was to turn back just a couple of boats

….but it is too late. Here is a long story at Bloomberg Businessweek that you don’t have to read. It is an overly-long, detailed account of the travails of a Somali migrant (is he even telling the truth?) being trafficked in to Europe. The invasion began in earnest when Obama and Hillary destabilized Libya opening […]

Trump is right about Sweden; it has long been my pick for the first EU country to fall

“[A]nyone who wants to find out how not to handle a migration crisis is welcome to pay us [Sweden] a visit.” – Tove Lifvendahl Invasion of Europe news….. Everyone talks about France and Germany, but, for years, my money has been on Sweden as the first country to fall to the tide of overwhelming Muslim migration. […]

Breitbart: Refugees cost taxpayers BILLIONS each year

While bringing refugees to the US from certain parts of the world poses a security risk for America, often forgotten is the huge cost to US taxpayers (federal, state and local) of placing them in communities already loaded with poor people, a practice the mayor of Springfield, Mass. recently pointed out. And, before the refugee […]

Omar Jamal: The ‘Jesse Jackson’ of the Somali Ummah [community] in America

This is so funny. If you have followed RRW for the last almost ten years, you will recognize the name Omar Jamal.  I call him the ‘Jesse Jackson’ of the Somali ‘community’ in America. When Somalis are in ‘crisis’ (when aren’t they in crisis!), here comes Jamal to direct lazy and gullible reporters so that […]

NYT allows wealthy British subject to lecture U.S. about ‘fundamental American values’

I want to scream!  I missed this op-ed from January 27th, but the International Rescue Committee is re-tweeting it this morning and it caught my eye. Here we have David Miliband, the former Labour Party British Foreign Secretary lecturing Donald Trump about “fundamental American values” after Trump announced his Executive Order to keep America safe […]

Majority of Americans support Trump immigration ‘ban’ from terror hotspots

You are not alone! Check it out!  Vox (the website that featured my work recently, here) reports that the majority of Americans support President Trump’s Executive Order to keep us safe from immigrants coming from certain parts of the world—keep us safe from terrorists trying to enter the country. But, if the pollsters throw in […]

1,051 Refugees from banned countries admitted to U.S. since Presidential Executive Order

And, since October 1, 2016 (the first day of fiscal year 2017) we are up to 34,430—still time for the Trump Administration to cap entry for this year at less than 50,000 (my suggestion is 35,000). I’m glad to see so many news outlets now tracking refugee numbers, something not done until the last year […]

Germany has 450,000 failed Muslim asylum seekers they plan to deport!

You might want to read my post on asylum here last week.  Asylum seekers differ from the refugees we normally talk about because they get to a country like Germany (or the US, or Canada) and ask for asylum claiming they will be persecuted if returned home.  The refugees we write most about here are selected […]
