Groups like the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society and International Refugee Assistance Project, with their lawsuits through friendly courts, have so perverted the legal process that has been in place since 1980 for admitting refugees that there is even more reason for President Donald Trump to simply suspend the USRAP for FY18 which begins in 22 days. Here is the latest crowing at […]
About Ann Corcoran
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/ .

A reader alerted us to an ad (from the Ad Council) running repeatedly on their children’s TV programming, specifically Veggie Tales a show created to convey “Christian moral themes and [teach] Biblical values and lessons.” We looked for more information on the ad directing viewers to something called Embrace Refugees and found that the public service ad was […]
In the month of September the President, by law, sends a ‘determination‘ to Congress about the size and scope of the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program for the upcoming fiscal year which begins October 1st. This is the year he could really accomplish something if he suspends the program and forces Congress to review it. (It won’t happen […]
Invasion of Europe news….. It is so mind boggling to realize that supposedly smart people in Europe (Merkel, Macron, etc) cannot see what has happened to them. More babies please! (And, come on, you can afford it! To save big don’t send them to an expensive college to be brainwashed!) See my complete ‘Invasion of […]
…..but, not a word about the responsibility of Muslims to rein-in their terrorist element. These Hajj Muslims seem to think our concern about Muslim migration is completely lacking in any rational calculation. Don’t miss Raheem Kassam’s good report on Islamic terrorism attacks in ‘welcoming’ Europe and how more Americans need to wake up. …And, here […]
See my previous post for background on my title! Here is the title of this EU Bulletin story: The Merciless Four Strike Again: Visegrad Group Sticks to “Zero Refugee Policy” Poland and Hungary are still sticking to their unwillingness to accept any refugees despite the busy migrant relocations going on in the rest of the bloc. Both countries are […]
What a coincidence, just as I posted my previous report from California about refugees adding poverty to already impoverished areas, here comes more news about refugees who can’t afford housing (Afghans again too). Hat tip:Joanne It is commendable that citizens may now take up the cause of this mother and son (private charity should be the primary source […]
“Canada is presented as the best way out of this complicated situation” – Abdullah Kiatamba, executive director of African Immigrant Services (MN) This story is more along the lines of what we reported here two days ago. I was delighted to learn that the Trump Administration is seriously considering letting Temporary Protected Status lapse for countries other than Haiti. Readers […]
I thought I was done posting for the day, but could not resist this ‘oopsy’ moment! He wanted to stick it to Trump! And, earn an ‘attaboy’ from his hero—Obama! From the UK Telegraph (and lots and lots of other media sources): Justin Trudeau has sought to tone down the warm welcome he promised to migrants, after […]
“Then a person ran towards us shouting ‘He has a knife’, and everybody from the terrace ran inside. Next, a woman came in to the cafe. She was crying hysterically, down on her knees, saying someone’s neck has been slashed open.” – A witness Surely you know what happened in Finland on the heals of Barcelona, […]
Invasion of Europe news…. From the New York Daily News yesterday: Poland’s interior minister says “Europe should wake up” after the Barcelona attack and realize it’s dealing with a “clash of civilizations” that proves his government’s point that accepting migrants is a tragedy for Europe. Mariusz Blaszczak says Friday his country is safe because “we do […]
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 […]
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 […]
