The next time you see a gushing news story where you live about how “new Americans” are causing your city’s economy to blossom, check the study and see if the “Welcoming” gang has factored in the amount of money LEAVING your community! Remittances are the dollars, US dollars, leaving the US economy and are the […]

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/ .

When I wrote my post welcoming readers to my new blog, I told you I was writing to attempt to balance the news because you will be bombarded by stories over the next two years about how immigrants (New Americans is the preferred word) financially and culturally benefit your community. Sure they may bring some benefits but also […]
Some are, but maybe not your local friendly, helpful health professional! A little over six months ago, then Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a major federal crackdown on doctors, pharmacists and other health providers for fueling the opioid crisis and using your Medicare and Medicaid dollars to line their pockets. Here is a bit of […]
Sometimes our criminals at Fraud, Crooks and Criminals will be Americans like the man who allegedly killed little Jazmine Barnes in a drive-by shooting ten days ago. The black child was killed by a black thug, but the New York Times, CNN and all the rest had already lynched a “white man with blue eyes” whose likeness had been sent […]
Just now when I was tweeting about how everyone should be calling their members of Congress and Senators today (even the Dems!) to demand they fund the President’s wall, I noted that my top tweet of the last month was one about a Chinese sex trafficking ring operating in New Hampshire and Maine. The poor […]
NumbersUSA is urging its supporters to get behind this legislation. Coming to America to have a baby has got to be one of the biggest frauds perpetrated on Americans. You can’t go to any other major country in the world (except Canada), have a baby and claim a right for that child to be a citizen […]
This is one of the better stories I’ve read on the funeral for a man, an immigrant who gave everything for America, who should be alive today. Instead some Mexican low-life who allegedly entered the US illegally is still breathing. From the Modesto Bee (emphasis is mine): CrossPoint Community Church overflowed with mourners. The main Worship Hall was standing-room […]
Surely some of the doctors who prescribe unnecessary pain medications and hook hundreds of thousands of Americans on drugs are American born and bred, but check out this story from Michigan in December. Not only did these ‘new American’ doctors and health professionals turn unsuspecting Americans into drug addicts, but they did it by using […]
Ladies beware! The “man,” Mumtaz Rauf, 39, was arrested at Fair Oaks Mall in Fairfax, Virginia after a sharp-eyed teen saw what looked like a camera peeping down at her while she was trying on clothes in a mall shop. The incident is alleged to have happened at Forever 21 in the late afternoon of Christmas eve. […]
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 […]
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 […]
