Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been saying, even before Trump was actually elected, that Canada would take ‘refugees’ the US didn’t want. So gosh, what did those darn refugee rejects (the Somalis and now the Haitians) do? They took his word for it and are heading en masse to the land of maple syrup. From Canada24News (hat tip: Joanne): Multiple […]

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/ .

When one sees stories titled like this one: Somalis With Criminal Records Are Heading for Canadian Border One immediately assumes this story has to do with changing U.S. refugee policy under Donald Trump’s presidency, but check this out, they were already heading to Canada under Obama. From Alpha News: Fear of deportation is causing some Somalis with […]
Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart called Starbucks to see if new refugee hires (see my post earlier) will be tested for TB as part of their employment screening. Surprise! No response! From Breitbart: Starbucks held a hiring event exclusively for refugees in El Cajon, California on Tuesday, part of its recently announced commitment to hire more than 10,000 refugees over […]
They say they ultimately want to hire 10,000 refugees because no American young people need jobs! (No they didn’t say that, but they must be thinking it!). From ABC News in El Cajon (hat tip: Joanne): EL CAJON, Calif. (KGTV)–Store managers from throughout San Diego will gather tomorrow at a Starbucks hiring event for refugees who want […]
Editor: This is a repost of a repost! Since President Trump was ‘highlighting’ the storied career of Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal yesterday (so that Blumenthal today is all over the Leftwing cable news), I thought new readers might like to know more about the man. Come to think of it, I haven’t heard Blumenthal lately […]
President Donald Trump challenge to Politically Correct ideology dominating American political discourse since the Islamic terrorist attack of 9/11/2001. THE TRUMP EFFECT: DEPROGRAMMING THE AMERICAN MIND concludes that the President has the potential to Make America Great Again, by changing the way Americans think about ourselves and the world.

In mid-September the Trump Administration will be sending its ‘Presidential determination’ to the Hill. The determination will set the CEILING for the number of refugees the President would like to see admitted to the US and sets priorities for what regions of the world will be the source of those refugees. It also tells Congress […]
The OIC is the Organization of Islamic Cooperation which represents 57 Muslim countries world wide and they know that to advance Islam (and Shariah law) worldwide they have to silence any criticism of Islam in the media. To that end they held a conference two weeks ago in (no surprise) London to strategize on how to silence […]
I’m sure you’ve all seen it, or at least bits of it! White House immigration expert Stephen Miller takes down an uneducated CNN reporter—Jim Acosta. Here is what Howie Carr saidat his website following the exchange: It is about damn time that someone put Jim Acosta in his place. It’s like this clown and Keith Olbermann […]
“….these are really good workers. They show up on time. They say ‘yes’ when they are told what to do. They do what is necessary for their survival.” – Lavinia Limon, CEO USCRI Ten years ago, when I first started writing this blog, NO ONE ever said a word publicly about refugee admissions being desirable for […]
No time to read it, but thought you should know this new General Accountability Office (GAO) study came out yesterday in Washington. Let me know if you see anything useful! My experience with past GAO studies on the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) is that, other than media like RRW which could use their findings […]
Globalists love refugees! Every time I see news about Tesla’s new cars, I am reminded of the R & P Abstract for FY16 for Reno, Nevada where refugee contractor, USCRI, cited Elon Musk’s nearby soon-to-be-built battery factory as a source of employment for refugees to be placed in their new resettlement site—Reno. I told you about that abstract […]
The United Nations holds its fall general assembly in September. This is when ‘diplomats’ from all over the world come to New York for really what amounts to one big party on the town. Here we learn that to save money, the Trump Administration will be limiting the number of State Department and other DC […]
Here is a bit of good news from Washington. I’ve told you a few times over the years about how the open borders left rejects the word and the process for immigrants to assimilate and instead has focused on integration for immigrants—most recently here (Sarsour says Muslims must not assimilate). In Michael Patrick Leahy’s Breitbart story yesterday about this subtle, but […]
I’m sorry to keep repeating myself, but this whole refugee controversy has devolved in to a discussion about two issues—the number of refugees we admit and security screening. What happened to the idea that communities would be informed about refugees arriving in their neighborhoods? What happened to any discussion about the enormous costs of resettling […]
