He just loves twisting their tails as he did in the Ohio rally two nights ago. And, I am so glad he brought up the truly insane Diversity Visa Lottery. Here we have Think Progress, a preeminent Progressive website that’s been around for nearly 15 years (but losing its luster we see) attempting to get your minds right […]
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/ .

Before I get to the hot news, I want to be sure you all saw my post from this morning as ‘Frauds and Crooks’ was experiencing some interruptions again today. That post fits very nicely with this latest news as it is about Somalia, Trump and Omar, click here. Ho-hum! These aren’t the first refugees linked to Islamic […]
For new readers that 95,000 number is for refugees chosen abroad and flown here on your dime and then resettled by the State Department’s nine paid resettlement contractors. (The Trump team never got rid of any of the nine as they once promised to do!) Of course that 95,000 number is in addition to the […]
EDITORS NOTE: As we work on getting this blog and Refugee Resettlement Watch hosted elsewhere there may be a glitch or two along the way. Yesterday that happened with my update on the Kenyan Killer story, see here, where the link did not work. Well, at least this Liberian didn’t get away with the all too common marriage […]
If you have been following the controversy swirling around the charge that Rep. Ilhan Omar might have committed fraud by marrying her brother, there might have been a fraud committed years before that even. Back in 2008 I began a series of reports on the so-called P-3 program that permits already resettled refugees in the […]
“Refugee backers….worry that the doomsday scenario — taking numbers down to zero — could debilitate the resettlement program for years to come.” – (Politico) I had planned to immediately this morning jump on the Rep. Ilhan Omar (Somali refugee) marriage scam story, but need to tell you about this breaking news first. A little background…. Every […]
“Will a single American elected official please stand up and challenge the continued public funding of this subversive religious racket?” – Michelle Malkin Refugee Resettlement Watch may be down temporarily, but thankfully patriots with bigger megaphones have taken up the call to educate Americans about the supposedly ‘religious’ charities that live off of us—taxpayers—in order to […]
As if it wasn’t bad enough—the media bias, that is—a group I had never heard of is recruiting young ethnically diverse “journalists” to fan out across America into newsrooms at local media outlets in what might be described as a seeding program for furthering their control over the already seriously Left-leaning media. In recent days […]
You’ve probably seen the news. I know you saw the news about the crash that killed seven members of a NH motorcycle club the day they were killed, but did you ever see any widespread coverage of the arrest of the driver who is charged with their deaths? I didn’t! But, we learned from John […]
Well, I should say a hit-job on white Americans; the Somalis there are pure as the driven snow. But, did anyone expect anything other than a hit from the New York Times? Anyone who raises any questions about how many migrants we should admit to America or asks what it will cost taxpayers, or any […]
This is a story from last month that I missed. Thanks to a reader for sending it. It is an incredibly sad story about a popular suburban dog walker who was just returning from a local park with her clients, six dogs, when a police chase ensued. Her killer, Javier Olivarez, widely described as a […]
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 […]
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 […]
