The genocide of Syrian and Assyrian Christians by ISIL, Al Q’ieda, and Muslim Brotherhood trained Radical Islamic Terrorists, on the Plains of Ninveh in Iraq, has resulted in 3.5 million Muslim and Christian refugees seeking relief. In addition to the hundreds of thousands Muslim refugees who have already been given entry into the U.S. by Obama, more than 360,000 Muslim refugees are being targeted for additional resettlement in the U.S. by the UN Resettlement Program. Obama is encouraging the acceptance of more Muslim refugees, for resettlement in the U.S., than all the other countries in the world combined. When the UN Muslim Resettlement Program began, it was run and controlled by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by agencies of her State Department. Obama directed Hillary to let the Muslim refugees enter the U.S. without slowing the process down, by the time consuming investigation of their backgrounds to determine if they had terrorist ties. On Obama’s orders, Hillary placed all entering Muslims on a fast track to obtain U.S. citizenship. Obama ordered Hillary to resettle & integrate the Muslim refugees in communities throughout the U.S. without informing elected state and city officials and local law enforcement officials where they were being resettled; this has been going since Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.
George Soros’ is funding the resettlement of Muslim Refugees thru his organization, Welcoming America, and Welcome America has been working with LA Raza to also integrate millions of Illegal Aliens to be resettled throughout the U.S. with the funding from George Soros’ Open Society Institute, without informing elected state and city officials and local law enforcement officials where they are being resettled. Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX) sent a letter to the White House on January 28th citing “serious national security concerns” about the UN Refugee Program which is resettling and integrating Muslim refugees in communities throughout the U.S. without investigating their backgrounds to determine if they have terrorist ties, and implored Obama not to let it become a “back door for Jihadists.”
For the first time in 6 years only “ONE” of the 435 U.S. Congressmen, Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC), is demanding that Secretary of State John Kerry immediately cease the hidden location where Muslim refugees will be resettled in his Congressional District! Cong Gowdy is demanding that a list of specific questions be answered (listed in the below listed article) directly by Secretary of State Kerry, himself, and that all resettlement activity of Muslim refugees in the Spartanburg, SC UN Resettlement Program cease until he receives a personal response to his questions from Kerry. Cong Gowdy demanded that South Carolina State and city officials be provided with specific details about who is going to pay for the health care, resettlement costs, transportation costs, education of refugee children, the welfare costs of refugee families, food stamps, and housing costs of thousands of Muslim refugees. We strongly recommend that all Americans write their Congressional representatives and demand that they each ask Secretary of State Kerry to cease the resettlement of Muslim refugees in their Congressional Districts, until Kerry answers the below listed questions posed by Cong Trey Gowdy.
The FBI has repeatedly warned the Obama administration and the State Department that there is a strong likelihood that ISIL and Al Q’ieda has ordered its trained Radical Islamic Terrorists to sneak into the U.S. posing as “refugees”, as they have been doing in large numbers in Norway and Europe. Yet, Obama has refused to direct the U.S. Immigration Service to complete background investigations on Muslim refugees, to determine if the hundreds of thousands incoming Muslim refugees have terrorist ties, before they are allowed to enter the US thru the UN Refugee Program. That refusal of Obama to do background investigations on Muslim refugees, to ensure that they do not have terrorist ties, before being allowed entry into the U.S., and before they are integrated in thousands of communities across the U.S., is a further display of Obama’s gross negligence in upholding his oath of office to protect the security of Americans citizens, and the National Security interest of the United States.
The stealthy massive influx of only Muslim Refugees from the UN Refugee Program has been underway for 6 years, resettling hundreds of thousands of refugees in unsuspecting communities in 49 states, while keeping elected officials in thousands of cities throughout the Republic in the dark about where they are being resettled. According to the Greek Catholic Relief Agency, to date, 300,000+ Syrian and Assyrian Christians refugees are not being allowed to enter the United States. However, thousands of Muslim refugees are being allowed to enter from Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan, Bosnia, Libya, Egypt, and Yemen, and the FBI has developed and prosecuted terrorist cases where Muslim refugees, with terrorist ties, have been charged and convicted with providing material support for foreign Radical Islamic Terrorists organizations.
To date, it is estimated that 180+ Muslim refugees, who obtained US citizenship, have left the United States to train with ISIL, Al Q’ieda, and el-Shabaab, and participated in the ongoing genocide of Christians by burning them alive, shooting them, beheading them, crucifying them, raping & murdering young Christians girls, and selling Christians women into slavery. The Pope, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Royal Family in England, the UK Prime Minister, the King of Jordan, the President of Egypt, the President of Kurdistan, the Prime Minister of Japan, the President of Russia, the Prime Minister of Australian, President George W. Bush, Reverend Billy Graham, the Patriarch of the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Prime Ministers of every NATO nations, the Prime Minister of Israel, Christian Religious Leaders of every denomination from throughout the world, the current crop of candidates seeking to run for President of the United States, 51 Congressmen who petitioned Obama, U.S. Senators, Christians worldwide, and the Secretary General of the United Nations have all expressed their revulsion of the barbaric massacres being prosecuted by ISIL, Al Q’ieda, and members of the Muslim Brotherhood. They have all raised their voices in unison to demand that the bloody genocide of Christians in Africa, Syria, and on the Plains of Nineveh in Iraq stop. To date Obama has refused to condemn the wholesale genocide of Christians by Radical Islamic Terrorists and is the only leader of a non-communist country who has not called for a stop to the bloody genocide——Obama’s continued silence is deafening and says a great deal about who Obama really is!
President Putin of Russia told reporters, “As to the Middle East and Christians, the situation is terrible. We have spoken about it many times and we believe that the international community is not doing enough to protect the Christian population of the Middle East (Putin is speaking out and more concerned about ISIL’s genocide of Christians; Obama refuses to speak out against the genocide of Christians by Radical Islamic Terrorists). Many of those newly trained Radical Islamic Terrorists with US citizenship have been returning to the U.S., without criminal charges being filed against them by the Obama administration for being agents of foreign terrorist organizations. They should be incarcerated, tried as anti-American terrorists, sentenced to prison terms for sedition, have their passports and citizenships voided, and when their prison terms are completed they should be removed from the United States for life.
ISIL, Al Q’ieda, and el-Shabaab Islamic Terrorists have not only been entering the United States thru the UN Muslim Refugee Program, they have been targeting the wide open southern border for entry over the last 6 years (the Director of the FBI recently informed the nation that the FBI has identified Islamic Terrorist Sleeper Cells in all 50 states). In October 2014, Congressman Duncan D. Hunter, Capt-USMR (R-CA-52), an endorsed Combat Veteran For Congress, notified the national press corps that U.S. Border Patrolmen warned him that there were Radical Islamic Terrorist training camps south of the Mexican border. But that report was quickly covered up, because the Obama administration, the Democratic and Republican Congressional leadership, and the left of center liberal media establishment did not want to expose just how dangerous to the National Security of the Republic, that Obama and the Congress’ continued failure to close the wide open southern border has become, and just how dangerous it was to the safety of the lives of innocent American men, women, and children.
Now 6 months after Cong Duncan Hunter’s warning about Terrorist training camps south of the Mexican border, Judicial Watch completed a detailed report that ISIL is operating a base terrorist camp about 8 miles from the US border city of El Paso, Texas, in an area known as “Anapra”, situated just west of Ciudad Juarez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIL base terrorist camp is located west of Ciudad Juarez, in Puerto Palomas, close to the New Mexico cities of Columbus and Deming, and those U.S. cities are being targeted for easy entry into the United States. In a Joint Operation, the Mexican Army and Federal Law Enforcement Officers reported they discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu with detailed plans for Fort Bliss, Texas, where the 1st Armored Division is based (the Joint Operation sweep recovered Muslim prayer rugs, supplies, and many documents). The Republican and Democratic leadership of the Congress’ refuses to close the wide open southern border in the same manner as the San Diego Border Sector has been securely closed for many years (Congressman Duncan L. Hunter/Ret, a US Army Vietnam Combat Ranger, before he retired from Congress, ensured that the San Diego Border Sector was securely closed, when he was Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee).
ISIL, Al Q’ieda, and el-Shabaab have been infiltrating well trained Radical Islamic Terrorist thru the wide open U.S. southern border with impunity, entering very easily as chaperons with thousands of children from Central America (those children are carrying many infectious diseases, and are being given immediate entry, then given immediate release to go anywhere they want to go to in the U.S.; they are still not being medically quarantined in violation of Federal Immigration Laws). Obama, and the Democrat and Republican leaders of Congress, continue to look the other way while allowing hundreds of thousands infected children from Central America and an unknown numbers of trained Radical Islamic Terrorists killers to enter the U.S. to murder unsuspecting American men, women, and children. They are complicit in their “gross negligence” and are guilty of perpetrating “crimes against the American people” by their continued “gross negligence” in intentionally keeping the southern border wide open—it is a violation of their oaths of office to protect the lives of defenseless American men, women, and children.
A major security problem, that the U.S. and NATO nations are faced with, is that anyone holding a passport from a NATO nation, has cross border access to any other NATO member nations as a courtesy, and by simply presenting their passports are given entry. Since thousands of Europeans and 180+ Americans have been recruited by ISIL to travel to Plains of Nineveh to execute the on-going genocide against Christians in Syria and Iraq, those trained ISIL Radical Islamic Terrorists holding a NATO nation passport, will be allowed entry by Custom Officers into the US (Egypt recently accused Turkey of issuing 10,000 passports to ISIL Radical Islamic Terrorists who would also have access to every NATO nation). Despite the fact that the external security threat from ISIL Al Q’ieda, and Muslim Brotherhood trained Radical Islamic Terrorists continues to increase, Obama continues to minimize that growing and very dangerous external threat, and refuses to let anyone in the US government identify the true nature of the threat as being from Radical Islamic Terrorists.
The Obama administration is not arresting many of the returning 180+ Americans with passports who traveled to the Middle East to be trained as terrorists by ISIL, is resettling & integrating hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees in 49 states while hiding where they are being resettled from state & local elected officials & law enforcement agencies, is refusing to investigate the background on hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees flooding into the U.S. from the UN Refugees Resettlement Program to determine if they have terrorist ties, is refusing to secure the wide open southern border thru which ISIL & Al Q’ieda Radical Islamic Terrorists have been entering the US, and has prevented the U.S. government (Intelligence Agencies, the FBI, the CIA, the DIA, the NSA, and the US Armed Forces) from identifying the major threat to the security of the Republic as Radical Islamic Terrorists who have been perpetrating genocide daily against thousands of Christians in the Middle East and in Africa. The most serious threat to the security of the Republic and the lives of all Americans are the policies that the occupant of the Oval Office has put in place over the last 6 years, and the leftists, Marxists, Communist, and the members of the Muslim Brotherhood he has appointed to positions of leadership in the Obama administration (one of the Communist member of the Obama administration who was unmasked, Van Jones, was forced to resign).
CONGRESSMAN DEMANDS ANSWERS ON INFLUX OF SYRIAN REFUGEES
Republican Congressman wants end to secrecy in choosing resettlement sites
Leo Hohmann is a news editor for WND. He has been a reporter and editor at several suburban newspapers in the Atlanta and Charlotte, North Carolina, areas and also served as managing editor of Triangle Business Journal in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., has sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry demanding information about the reported pending move of dozens of foreign refugees from Syria, North Africa and elsewhere into South Carolina.
Gowdy is chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee responsible for the refugee resettlement program overseen by the State Department. Yet, he says in the letter, he was kept totally in the dark about the proposed resettlement of refugees into his own district in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
Ann Corcoran, a longtime watchdog over the refugee program and author of the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog, says Gowdy is the first member of Congress to demand answers to basic questions about this program since she took up her crusade eight years ago to expose secrecy, fraud and lax oversight in the program.
The program has flown under the radar for more than 25 years but controversy flared in February when a top FBI counter-terrorism official, Michael Steinbach, testified before the House Homeland Security committee and said the U.S. has no way to vet the Syrian refugees for possible connections to the Islamic State, also called ISIS, and other terrorist organizations. As WND reported, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, sent a letter to the White House Jan. 28 citing “serious national security concerns” about the Syrian refugee program and imploring Obama to not let it become a “back door for jihadists.”
In fact, dozens of Islamic refugees from Iraq, Somalia and other countries have already been charged and convicted of providing material support to foreign terrorist organizations while others have left the country to fight for ISIS in Syria and al-Shabaab in Somalia.
Now, Gowdy has taken the fight for information on exactly how this program works to a new level, demanding answers for the Spartanburg resettlement from none other than John Kerry.
But he needs to go one step further, Corcoran said. As chairman of the subcommittee charged with overseeing this program, Gowdy must demand answers for the communities in all 49 states that participate in the U.S. refugee program, not just his own state or district. That would require holding hearings, she said, because this issue affects communities across the U.S., not just Spartanburg.
“Maybe due to Gowdy’s swift and decisive action, other communities, which are being kept in the dark, will get some relief,” she said. “This is the first time I’ve ever seen anyone in Congress do this. Trey Gowdy has directed a letter to John Kerry asking all the right questions.”
The U.S. has been taking in an average of about 70,000 refugees per year over the past few years. The refugees are placed in housing and schools and given free healthcare. They are put on a fast track toward full U.S. citizenship, often within five years.
Gowdy has asked Kerry to provide answers on how Spartanburg was selected for the opening of a new resettlement office to be operated by World Relief. He wants to know when the refugees will arrive, how many, and from what countries. He also demanded to know what services will be required, the cost, and how much of the cost will be charged to the federal government.
This is an issue that affects almost every state. The U.S. State Department works with the United Nations to resettle refugees into every state except Wyoming. Charitable organizations such as World Relief, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Church World Services, Episcopal Migration Ministries and the International Rescue Committee operate resettlement offices in 190 communities across the U.S. All of these are private charitable agencies but they receive millions of dollars in federal grants to support their efforts.
WND requested comment from Gowdy Tuesday morning.
“We don’t have any comment at this point beyond our letter sent yesterday,” said Gowdy’s press secretary, Amanda Duvall.
Last week WND reported on the secretive nature of the process in which cities and towns are chosen for the resettlement of foreign refugees, many of them Muslims from areas known to be in upheaval fighting ISIS and other terrorist organizations. Syria, Somalia, Afghanistan and Iraq, for example, all have devolved into civil sectarian strife, causing the displacement of large numbers of people. Many Christians have been driven from their homes in Iraq and Syria, yet the U.S. has been taking in mostly Muslims from these countries.
And the FBI is not the only intelligence operation warning about the strong likelihood that ISIS will send its militants to Western countries posing as “refugees.”
The Norway’s Police Intelligence Service said in November 2014 that its main concern was individuals misusing the refugee system to bring Syria’s violence to Norway, reported the Nordic Page.
Refugee resettlements are conducted in the U.S. by nine private agencies that contract with the U.S. government, and six of the nine have religious affiliations. These nine contractors in turn subcontract with more than 350 other charitable organizations and churches.
The complete text of Gowdy’s letter, dated April 13, is posted below.
The Honorable John Kerry Secretary U.S. Department of State 2201 C Street, NW Washington, DC 20520
Dear Secretary Kerry,
I write regarding the potential resettlement of refugees to the Spartanburg, South Carolina, area. It has been reported by media outlets, and confirmed by staff within your Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM), that a resettlement agency submitted a proposal to open an office in Spartanburg. In addition, it is my understanding that the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) approved the request to resettle a certain number of refugees in Spartanburg.
As the Member of the U.S. House of Representatives representing the Spartanburg area, I am deeply concerned about the lack of notice, information, and consultation afforded to me and my constituents about this issue. As such, please provide the information requested and answers to questions below:
1. Please provide a copy of the proposal submitted by the resettlement agency and any subsequent correspondence between your Department and the resettlement agency.
2. When was the resettlement agency’s proposal submitted? When was it approved by USRAP?
3. How were the claims made in the proposal as to Spartanburg’s readiness to resettle refugees verified for accuracy by USRAP prior to approval?
4. What, if any, steps were taken to notify and consult with local government officials (elected or otherwise) prior to the approval of the resettlement proposal? If so, who was contacted and did they approve the proposal?
5. Which officials/employees of the South Carolina State government reviewed and approved the resettlement agency’s proposal? When was such approval given? Were these officials/employees contacted by USRAP to independently ensure approval was given?
6. What types of, and how much, funding will the resettlement agency receive from the federal government? How much of that amount must be provided to the refugees and how much can be kept by the resettlement agency?
7. When are the first refugees expected to arrive in Spartanburg?
8. What federal, state, and local benefits are the refugees entitled to receive a) upon designation as a refugee and b) upon resettlement in the Spartanburg area?
9. How many refugees will be resettled in the Spartanburg area?
10. How are the refugees chosen to resettle in Spartanburg?
11. What is the country of origin of each of the refugees to be resettled in the Spartanburg area?
12. Who is responsible for ensuring housing, employment, and education services for the resettled refugees?
13. Who is responsible for ensuring resettled refugees maintain employment, as opposed to tracking employment for the first few months after being resettled?
14. How many of the refugees to be resettled in the Spartanburg area are of the age to attend K–12 schools? Of those, how many need the local government to provide interpreters or teachers who speak the native language of the refugee for the students?
15. Do any of the refugees to be resettled in the Spartanburg area have criminal convictions? If so, for what crimes has each been convicted?
16. Please explain the background check process performed on refugees scheduled to be resettled in Spartanburg.
17. Will this be the only time refugees will be resettled to the Spartanburg area pursuant to the agency’s proposal? Or can additional refugees be resettled pursuant to the proposal?
I request that any plans to resettle refugees in the Spartanburg, South Carolina, area be placed on hold until my constituents and I receive your substantive responses to the questions and information requested in this letter.
Additionally, before moving forward, both the Spartanburg community and I should have time to substantively review the information and be comfortable with the information provided.
As previously stated, I am troubled by the lack of notice and coordination with my office and the Spartanburg community, particularly local officials, regarding the plans to resettle refugees in the area. In that vein, I request at least one month’s notice prior to the arrival of the first refugee in the Spartanburg area. Please contact my Chief of Staff, Cindy Crick, with such notice (864-241-0175 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thank you in advance for your prompt response and attention to this matter.
