Puts a discussion of LEGAL immigration on the table with his Immigration white paper. Here is Roy Beck writing at NumbersUSA earlier this week: The weight of Donald Trump’s front-runner status and his detailed plan released over the weekend tipped the balance among the Republicans’ 2016 Presidential field so that the dominant position now is […]
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/ .

So what might the above photo [of David Miliband and Hillary Clinton] have to do with Wichita, Kansas? That man on the left (Hillary says if you met him you would have a “crush”) is the CEO of the International Rescue Committee based in New York City. He is the former British foreign secretary who […]
Here is the plan (hat tip: Cathy) and here is a very thorough report by Matthew Boyle at Breitbart. Presidential candidate Donald Trump, we learned, reached out to Senator Jeff Sessions for help crafting the very ‘comprehensive’ and detailed plan—a plan which addresses both LEGAL and illegal immigration with an eye to putting American workers first! […]
You’ve probably seen or heard it somewhere in the news recently that the Greek government has sent a huge cruise ship to house refugees arriving by the thousands on the island of Kos. Seems the Greeks are going to help the Syrians first, so all of the other Middle Eastern young men are fighting each […]
Except apparently it was so brutal that the case (and the autopsy) has been sealed from the media for at least a week! Or, why else would it have been sealed? Diversity is strength alert! The story is here at World Net Daily: Authorities in Portland, Maine, have arrested three Somali-American men in connection with […]
Signaling that he couldn’t be more serious about getting immigration under control, Presidential candidate Donald Trump has sought out the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, Senator Jeff Sessions, to help craft his immigration policy platform. Readers know that if I could have waved a magic wand and chosen […]
That phrase is a favorite one of a longtime critic of the refugee resettlement process as it is now administered in the U.S.—bidding for bodies. Catchy isn’t it! Yesterday we were alerted to yet another editorial at MagicValley.com which has heretofore demonstrated a bias in favor of more refugees for Twin Falls. The editorial basically asks, […]
I told you the other day, I’m a one issue voter. If we don’t get immigration (how many and who we allow to become permanent residents) slowed (stopped!) nothing else matters. So, just thought you should see what Daniel Horowitz writing at Conservative Review yesterday tells us about Carly Fiorina on the issue of immigration (among […]
The people who chose to build their town on an island are now whining that the bad old USA needs to save them as the island is supposedly sinking. News flash! Islands submerge and often reappear again over centuries the world over as part of the dynamism that is our planet. Back in the ’70’s […]
Yesterday Ann Coulter tweeted this little walk down memory lane about the premiere (supposedly) conservative conclave held in Washington, D.C. each year known as CPAC. For the record, we have written often on CPAC, but will not attend primarily because CPAC ‘leaders’ including Grover Norquist have worked hard for many years to keep discussions on […]
Pope Francis has been chastising Europe for years now for not welcoming the hordes of migrants arriving on European shores and across its eastern borders. There is nothing new here. Apparently he must have gone to Lampedusa again. I wonder how many migrants have been ‘welcomed’ to live at Vatican City? Does anyone know? […]
Sorry, if I will offend some of you, but I am pretty much a one issue voter. The future of America is not going to hang on what happens to Obamacare or any other social program. The future of America and indeed the future of Western Civilization hangs on one thing only—what we do about […]
Why the next seven weeks? Because fiscal year 2015 ends on September 30th and the settlers in the US State Department and in their contracting agencies want to hit the Obama target of 70,000 for the year and they have (as of July 31), 18,470 more to go! Actually that 70,000 figure that Obama announced […]
This is another good comment from ‘7delta.’ The comment is in response to ‘Misterpaul’ (a thoughtful and concerned Brit) at our post on Fargo, ND, here. The Calais standoff has gone on for years, here is one story from 2013. For additional background, you might also want to see our post last week on the […]
I’m not going to say much here except that I was very glad to see the discussion of immigration elevated to the level it has reached in the GOP primary contest. See my previous post on how Americans feel about more immigration. Some of you may disagree….. But, it was the Fox moderators themselves (especially […]
