Arizona, Massachusetts and New Hampshire refugee contractors cutting back

In my previous post I told you about the reality setting in in Arizona, and now we see that New England refugee contractors are facing that reality too and cutting staff, or shortening hours. I am delighted to see more effort being made on the part of reporters to get their facts. Here at WBUR News […]

Hawaii Judge Thumbs Nose at Attorney General Sessions

You probably heard on the news over the weekend that the Department of Justice sought clarification from Obama’s friend, Judge Derrick Watson, in Hawaii and asked if he really meant to include a stop order on the President’s 120-day moratorium on refugee admissions and the FY17 ceiling reduction when he was aiming at the travel […]

Hillary’s ‘Libyan legacy’ still responsible for invasion of Europe as Italy panics

Invasion of Europe news…. I’m not going to let you all forget that it was Hillary and her girls who were responsible for the overthrow of Libyan strongman Muammar Ghaddafi that resulted in the opening of the flood gates from Africa to Europe for tens of thousands of mostly economic migrants from the heart of […]

Hawaii Judge Places Restraining Order on President’s Refugee Pause EO

Unless I find a definitive article about what exactly the judge in Hawaii ruled on the Trump Executive Order in the next couple of hours (I have a doc appt.), here is one news story from the AP (thanks to reader Theodore). Also, according to several news sources discussing other pending cases, including Fox News, one […]

Since President Trump took office over 2,400 refugees from travel-ban countries entered U.S.

Pew Research has done a handy little summary of where we stand with refugees admitted this fiscal year, but most importantly they made a useful graph of how many entered from travel-restricted countries since the first week of December, through Trump’s inauguration and up to last Friday. There is nothing we haven’t already been talking […]

Tennessee files suit against federal government over cost to state of refugee program

It’s been a  long time coming, but yesterday, the State of Tennessee filed its Tenth Amendment case against the US Department of State and the Department of Health and Human Services over the issue of cost-shifting of the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program to the states. Readers, this is big news! Here is Michael Patrick Leahy […]

‘Battle of Rotterdam’ — On the Eve of a Historic Election in the Netherlands

Invasion of Europe news…. Western Civilization is under assault: “If this continues, our culture will cease to exist.” – A Dutch citizen of Amsterdam told The Washington Post this week. All eyes will be on the Dutch election scheduled for this Wednesday! And, if things couldn’t be more tense in the lead-up to election day, last […]

US Catholic Bishops [who are paid millions to bring Muslims to U.S.] assail Trump Migrant Slowdown

Actually it is over a half billion the US Conference of Catholic Bishops received from U.S. taxpayers since 2008! (By the way, I just heard Raymond Arroyo on Fox and Friends say that the USCCB gets millions of tax dollars annually from the federal treasury, but I couldn’t find the clip.  Yeh! Finally that information […]

Germany Rooting Out Migrant Muslim Jihadists — 570 on Watchlist

The clincher to this story is in the last sentence.  570 “dangerous” refugees are being watched.  Surely they could get rid of them before they commit a terrorist act! I’m guessing that Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel is trying to look tough in the lead-up to German elections this year. And, how many more are still […]

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 […]
