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 […]

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/ .

No of course they didn’t say it that way, but that is what they mean. Instead, once again, it is about the poor refugees left in the lurch in some third world hell hole because of that meany Donald J. Trump. This is a broken record alert, but I plan to continue to pound the issue […]
Apparently Mohamed Noor still won’t talk to police investigators in the wake of the worst disaster for advocates of ‘diversity hires’ in America—the shooting by a Somali former refugee of an unarmed woman, an immigrant, who had called 911 looking for help. Noor is not talking (to investigators) but he has reportedly talked to friends […]
This latest was predicted and reported here by Michael Leahy at Breitbart two days ago. Judge Derrick Watson took advantage of the mess the Supreme Court made in its recent ruling (as Justice Thomas predicted) to once again attempt to stop President Trump from carrying out a simple 120-day moratorium on refugee resettlement in order to analyze the program and determine whether security […]
Pew Research Center has done some useful number crunching using the data available to you as well at Wrapsnet. DR Congo tops the list! Here are their findings in two simple graphs. Readers should know that the flood of refugees coming in from the DR Congo are part of a five year plan agreed to during the Obama Administration to […]
And, you can thank the Supreme Court for unconstitutionally legislating in its decision late last month. Refugees arriving after today are the responsibility of nine unelected justices. I showed you here over the weekend that no ceiling has been exceeded in the over 35 year history of the program. My worry is that what SCOTUS has done has been […]
On July 10, 2017 Tucker Carlson interviewed a woman who is a leader of something called the ‘Haymaker Collective’ where Leftists (Antifa!) have a gym project in Chicago where they are learning self defense to protect themselves from hate crimes and prepare for “war” with racists and xenophobes (in the Trump era). Tucker has no problem […]
I hadn’t checked the most recent data on how much of your money goes to the nine federal refugee resettlement contractors (aka VOLAGs) lately. So here is the latest information I could find. I had to use several sources mostly because some contractors do not file a Form 990 (They claim they are churches and are thus […]
He also suggests Italy will soon attempt to close its borders. I won’t hold my breath on that one, political correctness has most of Europe by the short hairs. Invasion of Europe news….. From Breitbart London (which has been doing a great job of reporting on the invasion): Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has claimed the European […]
These super rich Lefty celebrities have no shame! In 2016, Clooney and his wife praise German Chancellor Angela Merkel [pictured right] for her welcome to the migrant invaders (not using those words of course!). Italy as an escape? Maybe not so much! George Clooney is reportedly moving his young family to his Los Angeles mansion which […]
Sheila Mastropietro, a resettlement worker in Lancaster, PA yesterday called it “ridiculous” that a refugee could be a terrorist. Here is Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily on the Heritage Foundation report entitled, “The U.S. Refugee Admissions Program: A Roadmap for Reform.” (Also, Fox News wrote about the report here as well.) Hohmann: At least 61 people who came to the United […]
Diversity is beautiful alert! I thought I was done this morning, until three separate readers sent me Ann Coulter’s jaw-dropping report on the New York Times shameful miss reporting (and that is putting it kindly!) on the NYC hospital shooting last week. This needs mentioning because it is the same concept we see over and over again […]
As you all know Eastern European countries including Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland are so far holding firm in their resistance to accepting Muslim migrants who are presently flooding in to Italy and Greece. And, why should they open their country when the EU has been so foolish in allowing the invasion which began […]
Here is the news being reported everywhere in the last couple of day…. So, if they were all escaping the Syrian regime and it is still in place, why return? Truth is they weren’t all running from Assad, but from rebels and ISIS. How about a hotline for unhappy refugees to call in to the […]
While we are busy fixating on the ‘travel ban’ and the refugee moratorium, Trump’s Department of Homeland Security has begun to find those illegal alien parents who paid smugglers to get their children to the US border where they then became wards of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement (in HHS). Many of the ‘children’ were subsequently […]
