More than half surveyed said Australia felt like a foreign country! And, the upshot of this news story is a warning that if the nationalists can mount a countrywide political campaign they could become the power in Australia. Rejecting the usual excuse that migrants stimulate economic growth, economics are not a major concern—loss of culture […]

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 Trump Administration should know by now that they can’t keep stuff like this quiet because they have permitted the blabbermouths in the deep state to run wild. “White House chief of staff John Kelly reportedly told other members of the Trump administration that if it were up to him the number of refugees admitted into […]
It is everywhere on the news in the last 24 hours! In case you happened to miss it, here is Daniel Greenfield on George Washington’s Virginia church and the vote. (hat tip: Ed). So what does this have to do with refugees? It is a news hook to tell you about Episcopal Migration Ministries! We tell you daily […]
This is one of several statements I’m seeing this morning on the Trump Administration’s latest announcement on more stringent vetting for refugees and others wanting to enter our country. Editor: When I can’t quite figure out how much Trump is accomplishing on this issue, I can always use a ‘squawk’ gauge—what is the decibel level of […]
That is a rally partially sponsored by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to be held in Washington, D.C. this coming week. (As of this writing they have 847 confirmed planning to attend, here.) I told you about it here when the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society was pushing its groupies to attend. Curious about whether the other eight federal refugee contractors (some receiving […]
Reader Bob Enos sent us his thoughts after reading Ms. Wolfe’s paean (in Foreign Policy) to grandpa (in which the author takes the opportunity to, like all good Leftists, use hot button words to describe RRW). See my post here with a link to “journalist” Lauren Wolfe’s opposition to the idea of “assimilation.” (You may be able to […]
I continue to be amazed that a quasi-government agency receiving millions of dollars from the US taxpayer is a leading agitator in marches against the hand that feeds them—in this case the Trump Administration. Chutzpah! I suppose! The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society is helping get people out to the #NoMuslimBanEver rally scheduled for a week from tomorrow—October 18th—in Washington, […]
The new fiscal year (2018) is now ten days old and we see that the first of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s and President Trump’s proposed 45,000 refugees have arrived! According to Wrapsnet: Top ethnic groups arriving in the group of 98 are from the DR Congo (25), Bhutan (21) and Somalia (16). For our friends in Minnesota know […]
I have to admit, I haven’t read it yet, but, for diehard grassroots investigators, know that the report is a treasure trove of information on the US Refugee Admissions Program and Trump’s 45,000 refugee ceiling *** for the year that began this past Sunday. Don’t miss the tables at the end, often more useful than all the […]
What is wrong with this sob story? This Syrian family and the brothers left behind were in Saudi Arabia (one of the brothers had already emigrated to S.A.). Saudi Arabia is a safe country! Therefore, why are these people now the responsibility of the US taxpayer? They weren’t living in some sqaulid camp. They were […]
There is so much that could be done to stop the fraud including disallowing ‘mom and pop’ convenience stores from accepting EBT cards. If you are a longtime reader, you know that following food stamp fraud cases is a side interest of mine. Go here to my large archive on past cases. I haven’t written much lately […]
“We know that Canada’s strength comes from our diversity!” – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Lost in the horrific news from Nevada, is this story from Canada where another Somali refugee (a known wolf!) uses a car and a knife to ‘thank’ the country that ‘welcomed’ him and gave him shelter. (See Somali slasher story from Ohio, here) I’ve reported […]
UN short-circuiting the flow from Libya to Europe by sending migrants to the good ol’ welcoming USA? Hillary, along with her gal pals Susan Rice and Samantha Power, are the leading culprits in the Obama Administration’s disastrous involvement in the overthrow of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and the creation of a failed state that has become a […]
Invasion of Europe news… What did she win? In four more years will Germany even be recognizable? You’ve seen the news I’m sure, but this headline at Reuters caught my attention: Incensed over refugees, east Germans punish easterner Merkel Here is the story. Germany headed down the tubes IMHO (emphasis below is mine): BERLIN (Reuters) – For weeks, […]
“As for the cost, most is borne by private resettlement agencies.” – Washington Post Editorial Board What! They don’t read RRW every day? I’ve said it on many occasions but it is frightening to know something about an issue and then see flat-out ignorance about it from people who should have the facts…. But, I suppose […]
