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 […]

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/ .

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, […]
This should be fun to watch! The Marxists at the World Council of Churches and Pope Francis think they are going to bring the world together in harmony and love with a conference in September on defeating xenophobia and the menace of political populism (just as a major power shift fueled by populism is sweeping Italy). Maybe they would get a […]
I first told you about the case filed by Jared Taylor (American Renaissance) against Twitter here in February. Now we learn that Taylor’s lawsuit can advance as a California judge refuses Twitter’s effort to dismiss the case. NOTE: I use Twitter almost daily and was steadily moving upward in follower numbers until a few months ago. […]
When I first began writing this blog in July 2007, one of the issues that attracted my attention was the puzzling decision by the Virginia Council of Churches, working for major resettlement contractor Church World Service, to place refugees in one of the worst buildings in the worst section of Hagerstown, MD. But, here we are […]
Diversity is strength alert! This isn’t supposed to be happening in welcoming Canada! Aren’t we led to believe that poor and oppressed minority people feel for each other, that there couldn’t possibly be racism when neither side is white European? “It’s further colonization,” Wirch said of refugee resettlement. “We [Indigenous people] are further being displaced […]
I’ve been having computer problems so this is going to be a quickie update on the “dumb” Australia refugee deal that we should never have entered in to with the Australian government. In January of 2017, Trump should have said NO! to the outrageous Obama arrangement for us to take off the Australians’ hands 1,250 […]
That is the question a young opinion writer asks and answers (in the affirmative of course!) in the wake of Wednesday’s Supreme Court hearing on the President’s travel ban. The long opinion piece in Deseret News by writer Gillian Friedman evoked a largely negative response by readers. I especially got a chuckle out of this comment: I’ve snipped the following segments, […]
