The whole Rainbow Nation myth is going down the tubes as whites are persecuted but Leftists, including the Obamas, can’t let the myth die! Increasingly news is coming out of South Africa that white farmers are being murdered in ever greater numbers and the government there has made the first moves toward confiscating their prime […]

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/ .

Invasion of Europe….. Can we expect an apology from The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, and the rest of the anti-Trump media about his Sweden comments last year? Don’t hold your breath! Powerline blog reminds us here of what happened a year ago February when the New York Times and all of its media lackeys […]
And, it all started when Twitter banned Jared Taylor and American Renaissance from its platform. Breitbart has a long report on the case. I think Taylor has a good case, but you know how our court system has become (too often these days) the place where Leftwing ideology has found its home and Constitutional protections are lost, so I won’t […]
I told you about it here, but I’ve noticed over the last 24 hours that the story about Trump’s refugee policies being blamed for closure of NON-PROFIT GROUP offices is all over the media. Let me be clear! The blame rests squarely on the design of the US Refugee Admissions Program (and Congress) which has shoveled so […]
That is what Breitbart’s Michael Patrick Leahy is reporting about his efforts to get an answer from the major funding source for the nine federal contractors*** hired by State for the US Refugee Admissions Program. Leahy’s story is entitled: U.S. Government Continues to Fund Refugee Resettlement NGO Whose Funding Has Been Frozen by the U.K. (We reported […]
“We’ve never seen a cut of this size and also a cut of this impact.” – Hans Van de Weerd an executive at the International Rescue Committee. The slated closures, which are being reviewed by the State Department for final approval, follow President Donald Trump’s decision to dramatically reduce the number of refugees that will […]
I’m happy to see that more national immigration control groups are addressing the costly UN/US Refugee Admissions Program! Where are you Heritage? John Binder writing at Breitbart tells the latest story here: Over a five year period, American taxpayers are billed more than $8 billion for the resettlement of thousands of foreign refugees every year, a new study finds.

Sticking it to President Trump in January 2017, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, welcomed one and all to Canada… Justin Trudeau’s view on Diversity in 2016. ….now two years later it is oopsy! Never mind! Here are the opening paragraphs in the New York Times on January 28, 2017: OTTAWA — As President Trump’s executive order on immigration […]
Americans will not be safe as long as “your country is at war with Islam.” — Mahad Abdiaziz Adbiraham But, surprise! Authorities have not yet decided to bring terrorism charges against him. For background on Adbiraham, go here. Adbiraham is most likely a refugee, or the child of a refugee, because almost all Somalis in the U.S. […]
This is an incredible report from Karin McQuillan at American Thinker thanks to reader George for sharing it. Entitled: What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa: Trump Is Right It is one woman’s account of a year in Africa in which she describes the huge cultural chasm between African countries and America and she begins with […]
We reported here on January 1 that the Trump refugee numbers, at the present rate of arrival, would come in at half of the CEILING of 45,000 set for FY18. By the way, George Bush had two years that saw refugee admissions in the 20,000 range. Trump will set a record if he comes in below George W. […]
As promised, below are the stats for the first three months of fiscal year 2018 (it began on October 1, 2017). President Trump set the CEILING for the year at 45,000 refugees. That is the lowest CEILING since the Refugee Act of 1980(Kennedy/Biden) was signed in to law by Jimmy Carter. Columbus, Ohio second only to […]
I hadn’t noticed the story until Christmas day or so when Ann Coulter posted a series of tweets about the complete absence of any description of the man who attacked a woman walking home from work. (Ann had the date of the attack wrong, but not the fact about the apparent media coverup.) If you […]
Everyone is doing year-end reviews this week, and I’ll do a roundup on New Years Day for 2017, but I thought this would be interesting especially for new readers. Refugee Resettlement Watch launched in the summer of 2007 and here are the Top Ten most visited posts for the decade (in descending order): Watch the […]
That would be the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society one of the nine federal contractors*** that monopolize all refugee resettlement in America. They have been the most litigious of the nine while they receive more than $20 million a year directly from the US Treasury to place refugees in US cities. HIAS has also been the leader of […]
