I woke up this morning with my head spinning about the results nationwide, and couldn’t at first figure out where to dive in to tell you what I think about the midterm election results. Over time, I’ll have more to say about what it all means, but I do know this—there will be no legislative […]

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/ .

Armenians? You learn something new every day. Did you know that the center of the Armenian immigrant community in America is located in Glendale, California and that we are still bringing Armenian ‘refugees’ to the US to be placed mostly, where? in California, in and around Glendale where there are obviously ethnic and racial cultural […]
I have to say: this is the newest news I’m seeing. Since the whole issue is in flux (and perhaps more so after the shooting at the synagogue in Pittsburgh where we heard the shooter may have been angry over the caravan as well as HIAS’s role in it), things could change any minute. But, here is […]
LOL! That doubles their present resettlement numbers. Every year the UN High Commissioner for Refugees goes to Japan to nag them about resettling refugees. I doubt they impressed the UN High Commissioner for Refugees when he arrived there yesterday. From The Japan Times: Japan will consider accepting more Asian refugees from 2020, with an eye to […]
I was planning to write about the Daily Mail’s tirade against US Representative Steve King, calling him a white nationalist, today anyway, but oh joy! Donald Trump (with obvious pride) said he is a “nationalist” at his Texas rally last night. The migrant caravan is not about the poor and downtrodden! As we watch (in horror), the […]
Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review lays it out for us. President Trump already has all the power he needs to close our borders. Presumably inspired by all the news about a now 4,000-strong migrant caravan heading toward Mexico with the apparent aim to assault our southern border (see my post yesterday), Horowitz says this (emphasis is mine): President […]
I missed this last week and so did most everyone as official Washington was in turmoil over the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. The President signed the Memorandum on Thursday. We had already reported on the expected 30,000 cap, but up until the President’s signature on the the determination we still weren’t sure how many refugees […]
Yesterday ended Donald Trump’s first full fiscal year for refugee admissions as FY18 officially came to a close. President Trump breaks the George W. Bush record for the lowest refugee admissions. However, I’m going to say it over and over again—-lowering the numbers for a few years is meaningless without a serious push for robust […]
The Leftwing media and talking heads have been using a number of 11 million illegals in the U.S. for at least a decade, but commonsense told you it was higher. In June thousands turned out in Washington D.C. [photo right] in support of those crossing our borders illegally thus encouraging even more illegal crossings. Now […]
And, I was surprised to see that in a recent poll he is only five points behind the Democrat candidate for governor. Minnesotans who want to save their state need to get to work! For inspiration, re-visit this 2015 post where Minnesota’s present Democrat Governor told Minnesotans to leave the state if they didn’t like the diversity he […]
Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Salvini and Hungary’s Viktor Orban met yesterday in Milan to discuss a historic alliance to save Europe from further invasion. Keep an eye on Europe! Is it just in time or too late? “We are near a historic change on a continental level!” – (Matteo Salvini) From Deutsche Welle: Viktor Orban and Matteo […]
If you didn’t see my first post this morning go here. Then FBI Director Comey told the Senate last year that 300 refugees (about 200 of them Iraqis) were being investigated for possible connections to terrorists. This is number two in a three part series today on how the Trump Administration has been beefing up vetting and […]
This is of course no surprise. But, if these Senators are yours, know this: They don’t care about you and your community, about your safety and your wallets. To them this is all about playing games on the international stage. It is all about using refugees to wheel and deal with foreign governments! What is […]
That is from a recent Center for Immigration Studies report by Jason Richwine who analyzed the most recent Office of Refugee Resettlement Annual Report to Congress. More than half of the annual inflow of foreign refugees arriving in the United States are on food stamps, a government report reveals. Since 2008, as Breitbart News reported, the U.S. has permanently […]
I first spotted this story at Arizona Central and my first thought was—-here we go again. Although labeled as “refugees,” are they going to tell us anything about the nationality of the lying husband and wife who got in to the US during the Obama Administration? But after looking around at other stories about yesterday’s breaking news, […]
