Gosh, what do you know! Ben Carson was right when he said on his trip to Syrian refugee camps in the region—they really don’t want to come here. They want to go home.
Gives me an idea for some Congressional tweaking (see at the end of this post).
From Gallup via the Washington Times:
America and Canada are not the destinations of choice for Syrian refugees looking to escape the violence within their nation. Only 6 percent, in fact, cited North America as the place they would prefer to live in, this according to a new Gallup poll of Syrians released Monday.
What are the refugees’ preferences, should they permanently relocate?
Gallup found that 39 percent of their 1,000-plus Syrian respondents cited Europe; 35 percent cited the Middle East and northern Africa. Another 10 percent said they would prefer to live somewhere in Asia.
Still, 30 percent said they would continue living in Syria.
So who does want them in America (my list)?
- Barack Obama
- Hillary Clinton
- The UN High Commissioner for Refugees
- The Democrat Party and Democrat governors
- The resettlement contractors being paid by the head to resettle them
- The entire Catholic Church structure in America and many other mainline Protestant churches, Jewish groups and assorted others.
- The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other Islamists trying to advance the Hijra
- George Soros
- Big-wigs like those we reported in our previous post this morning
- Many in Congressional leadership on both sides of the aisle
- Mainstream media news outlets
So why are they so eager when the Syrians aren’t?
Now that there is so much research going on by reporters looking for new angles on the refugee issue, someone needs to look into how many refugees actually want to leave America once they know what it is like here. In my early days of writing RRW, I would hear directly from disillusioned refugees, esp. Iraqis, who wanted to go home, but didn’t have the finances and the where-with-all to do it.
Surely the State Department tracks the number of refugees who do in fact leave. I know some Iraqis went home.
We could save ourselves a lot of money if Congress created a Repatriation Fund where refugees (and other migrants, even illegal ones) who got here and were unhappy could apply for funds to go home! A reader suggested it here in January of this year.
Wouldn’t it be funny to watch the Dems trying to figure out how to defeat this measure. If they claimed it would be expensive it would be an admission that America has a whole heck of a lot of unhappy migrants here!
Action Alert: Call your members of the House and Senate at 202-224-3121 and ask them to vigorously oppose the Refugee Resettlement funding contained in the Omnibus Spending Bill that will be voted on by 12-11-15! Please call by this Friday, Dec. 4th.
