This is an update of a story I posted here in August where we learned that even the Washington Post was calling out local Leftwing politicians for their hypocrisy! It is your classic ‘Not-in-my-backyard’ tale. Washington, D.C. and its wealthy (Democrat-run) bedroom communities of northern Virginia do not want shelters for the mostly teens coming across our borders illegally. Send them […]
About Ann Corcoran
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/ .

I suppose there is nothing unusual about this case. It likely goes on across America on a daily basis, but I thought it might be instructive for a couple of reasons. First, although the FBI makes it clear that the arrested man is not a US citizen, we are never told (as usual!) how he […]
This week the feds busted 38 individuals they say are responsible for addiction and death in New Hampshire. The operation dubbed “Devil’s Highway” once again brought attention to Trump’s words about how Lawrence, Mass. is a hub for the distribution of dangerous opioids and other drugs throughout New England. And, it sure looks like ‘new […]
I know that by now you might be thinking this blog could be renamed Michigan Frauds and Crooks. Is it Michigan or is it that papers like the Detroit News are doing their jobs? And, to one of my critics—you see I do write about American crooks when the news interests me! Thanks to reader Cathy for this story published […]
There are some American-sounding names on the list, but gosh this looks like a list of names of UN delegates or something. From the Detroit Free Press: Michigan’s opioid pushers: Is your doctor on this list? Michigan locks up more doctors and pharmacists for peddling pain pills than any other state except New York, the Department […]
Here is the news about the disgusting abuse in the name of God. From the AP story at the Hartford Current: Leaders of California ministry charged with forced labor (My first question when I saw the news was, what are the names of the leaders? Other than the leader of the scam, the others aren’t named […]
Malkin’s timing is excellent because as I write this the Trump Administration is wrestling with an important legal requirement. In the coming weeks they must decide how many refugees (if any!) will be admitted to the US in FY2020 which begins in 21 days! Every year since the Refugee Act of 1980 was signed into law by […]
Traveling this Labor Day weekend? Keep an eye out for hidden cameras! I liked it so much that my headline is the same one the US Justice Department used on its press release on Tuesday. I’m enjoying the fact that the Justice Department is getting right to the point these days and telling us if the perp is […]
“Mass immigration is swamping the GOP base. Tens of millions of immigrants who vote Democratic, once they are naturalized and registered, have come and are coming to America.” – Pat Buchanan in 2006 It is true! And, once again we hear the statistics that confirm that immigrants (‘new Americans’) choose Democrats over Republicans when they […]
It sure looks like it, according to a press announcement on their investigative reporting from the Thomas More Law Center yesterday entitled, TMLC Uncovers Tax-Payer Funded Islamic Propaganda Forced On Teachers A SPECIAL INVESTIGATIVE REPORT ANN ARBOR, MI – The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national nonprofit public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has uncovered […]
“We believe this is one of the largest cases of its kind in U.S. history.” – US Attorney Nick Hanna The FBI announced this week that over a dozen were under arrest in the U.S. and efforts were being made to find additional co-conspirators around the world in fraud schemes involving at least 32 victims.

Since we are on the subject of sanctuary county—Montgomery County, MD (see my previous post)—here is a bit of good news for a change! (Hat tip: Cathy) Thank God for Judicial Watch! Note that it took TWO full years before the county is being forced to comply. From JW’s press release: JUDICIAL WATCH VICTORY: FEDERAL COURT ORDERS MARYLAND […]
Montgomery County, Maryland is a sanctuary county and thank goodness I no longer live there! Daniel Horowitz, writing at Conservative Review, reminds us of the 11-year-old poster girl the leftwing media has been promoting lately—you know the girl crying because her father was rounded up in a recent meatpacking raid. Surely you have seen the clip. […]
Thanks to reader Joanne for alerting me to this news from a week ago about the sentencing of a Somali ‘new American’ in a day care fraud scheme that cheated taxpayers out of a half a million dollars. I’m posting almost the entire Justice Department press release because it is chock full of information about how he […]
I’m glad to see that someone has done a deep dive into the issue of the costs of incarcerating Muslims, many of whom are immigrants we have welcomed to America. Of course, although some of the Muslim prisoners being counted are American Muslims and converts to Islam, we can still see that incarceration rates for […]
