Those entering the U.S. through this route did so because they “were scared the [refugee] process was not gonna work, or that it’s last (sic) a standstill.” (Christina Higgs, Catholic Charities San Antonio) I am furious to see that the border jumpers claim (or at least their Catholic handlers claim) that the refugee process might not […]

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/ .

Did you know that when over a million people a year apply for the Diversity Visa Lottery in hopes of getting one of 50,000 tickets to your American town, that, in the past, applicants were not even required to show proof (a passport) that they live in the country from which they are applying. That […]
This is news you aren’t going to see on cable TV or in the mainstream media. After a decade of legal wrangling, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was finally facing a jury trial (to begin in September) in a case that alleged they had hired a phony lawyer to help clients with their immigration status […]
To be more precise, Hassan Ali Sapry is the son of a Special Immigrant Visa holder from Iraq. The family arrived in New Hampshire in 2008 according to local media reports on the case. Of course they are all local reports because murders by refugees (or most illegal aliens for that matter) go unreported in the national print […]
Here we go again, another vulnerable elderly American woman suffers violent attack. This time in Nancy Pelosi’s back yard. Manuel Jesus Amador was arraigned on May 23rd. He required an interpreter even as his attorney said he had been in the US for 20 years! Only a few years ago Nancy Pelosi and her other […]
When I launched this blog—Frauds and Crooks—I expected to be primarily writing about the vast amounts of fraud being perpetrated (mostly by new Americans) in our various welfare programs along with some odds and ends of other crime stories. How many times in recent days have we heard about a handful of vulnerable children dying after […]
Nightmare! Imagine settling your mother into a senior living facility and learning that she was murdered for her jewelry by an African man who was living here illegally. Some families are now suing the facilities! But, first the news about what is happening in a case that could become one of the largest serial murder […]
It is all over the news so I’m sure you’ve seen it, but what struck me was a CNN cable news report this morning (you know I watch them for a little bit every day) and a female reporter asked Yusuf Abdi Ali, “Do you deserve to live here?” Wow! CNN actually asked that question a couple of times […]
After reading my story yesterday about the Canadian doctor who murdered his wife when she wanted a divorce, a reader from Tennessee sent me news from just this week about how domestic violence is part and parcel of Islamic law. This story is not from the Middle East or even from Muslim centers in states like Minnesota […]
Released this week, the Council on American Islamic Relations report contends that over a thousand foundations (listed in the appendix) fund a vast array of organizations who hate Muslims (they say). Of course my first thought was, well who funded this report endorsed by the disgraced Southern Poverty Law Center and who funds CAIR? And, my second thought was that […]
“A school district would never order teachers to ‘welcome’ Catholic students during Easter with ‘He is risen, alleluia!’ Singling out Muslim students for special treatment is blatantly unconstitutional.” – Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund Sharia creep for sure! And, it may be happening in your neighborhood too, but in the Seattle area at least a […]
If you missed the news about the Philadelphia controversy over the Muslim American Society program that featured young children reading aloud about killing Jews and Christians [below], here is one recent report about the on-going investigation. In the wake of that shocking performance we learn, thanks to the Middle East Forum (via Creeping Sharia) hat tip: Michael, that the Muslim American […]
This story has been in my queue for a couple of weeks and am finally getting to it. What is so galling about the news is that our law enforcement has spent time and (our) money to investigate a crime and now incarcerate a man for something that has nothing to do with us. We […]
Several people sent me this story from The Atlantic about a new computer program that is being tested by the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society to determine which American town or city could be the most hospitable to a third worlder arriving in the U.S. I’m posting it just so you know about it and especially for those of you who came […]
As I have said on many previous occasions, I hope the Trump Administration is gathering their successful fraud-busting cases together to use as examples of what the Trump team is doing for us—finding and punishing those ripping off the US taxpayer! At every rally he should be giving an update on how much fraud he […]
