Editor: Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Sorry, I haven’t written much at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ lately but things are hopping on the refugee front and I’ll have to keep my focus there (at Refugee Resettlement Watch) in the coming weeks. The President’s September Executive Order which would give state and local governments some say in whether refugees will be […]

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/ .

In 2010, the forward-thinking mayor of New York created the National Partnership for a New American Economy. I say forward-thinking because now 9 years later, he has what amounts to a local government network of cities that favor more immigration as he launches his bid to defeat Donald Trump in 2020. He and his cohorts have […]
This is a story I missed last week. You know the Left loves to tell their ‘stories’ to play on your emotions, well this one should play on ours and needs to be widely shared. Samuel Jackson (right) survived Vietnam only to die on his own PA street. This is a news story and photo […]
HIAS does not want local citizens to have any say in which third world refugees are placed in which towns. HIAS has been protesting Trump from the moment he was elected. Here CEO Mark Hetfield led a February 2017 anti-Trump rally that featured then Rep. Keith Ellison. Because time is short for me to post […]
You know those “brave boys” who worked for the US military in Afghanistan I’ve been telling you about; the ones who supposedly would have been killed if we left them in their home country; the ones we have been admitting as refugees to the US by the thousands—56,000 so far! See here. I’ll bet if you […]
Please give me specifics, she asked. I’ve been noticing an increase in the number of readers who want more information on how they can actually fight back against a tide of, for lack of a better description, progressive political activity including election victories by the Open Borders Left intent on changing America by changing the […]
Helping turn Virginia blue? Because so many readers sent the news about a Pakistani doctor in Virginia under arrest for performing unwanted and unneeded medical procedures on women in his care, I need to post the news. Even if there weren’t questions about why some women were unknowingly (allegedly) made infertile, Dr Perwaiz would have […]
He also is alleged to have slit the throat of their five-year-old daughter before hanging himself. The woman’s distraught family says she wanted out of their marriage. You may have already seen the news—the slaughter happened last Wednesday—but I hadn’t. Thanks to reader ‘meanymom’ for bringing it to my attention. The first thing I did […]
I know most of you reading this don’t care a bit about Bernie and his huge move to the Far Left on the issue of immigration, but since I have a category here at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ for “politicians as frauds” I want to tell you about Democrat candidate for Prez, Bernie Sanders. This also gives me an opportunity […]
This news from Fox News yesterday reminded me of a reader at Refugee Resettlement Watch who sent me information and stories to post for probably a year or so. She (I think the tipster was a she!) told me how important fire is as a weapon of jihad as she often found stories about mysterious fires, not just forest […]
Everyone knows that George Soros funds Leftwing causes and is a proponent of open borders, but even as the Koch brothers (David Koch died this year) have been tagged as the conservative movements money bags, not everyone knows the Kochs have pushed the immigration issue on the same side as Soros and his ilk. Freedom Partners, […]
“As United States Attorney, I want to make it clear to those who choose to distribute these dangerous drugs for profit – you are a priority for law enforcement, and my office will work with our local, state, and federal partners to prosecute you and send you to federal prison.” – Scott C.

You may have seen the sad news, but I wanted to be sure I had it archived here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’ From the Sun-Sentinel: He stole a car and left a disabled dog to die in the back seat, authorities say A 19-year-old man has been arrested in the death of a disabled dog after […]
Hey, I am just reporting the news. Don’t assume I am in any way feeling bad for Amazon! See my previous posts on Somali workers protesting in Minnesota. The Awood Center helped organize the walkout. From The Verge: Amazon workers in Minnesota walk out in protest over part-time work A day after The Verge reported on Sacramento Amazon […]
