Long time refugee advocate and refugee agency CEO is gone

This isn’t exactly breaking news!

Lavinia Limon stepped down as head of the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) last October according to a statement by the head of its board of directors. However, it may not have been a voluntary retirement. Someone recently reported to me that she was “forced” out during a period of growing “panic” among the nine federal contractors who are seeing their budgets shrink as refugee arrivals slow.

USCRI is presently being led by her longtime sidekick, Eskinder Negash.

Trump Administration cuts funding for special UN agency for Palestinian ‘refugees’

International refugee industry heads are spinning as the Trump team has withheld funding for UNRWA.  That is the United Nations special agency that we have funded for more than 60 years that supposedly takes care of those who were displaced when the modern state of Israel came into being.

They should have long ago been resettled in other Sunni Arab countries, but their demand for a “right of return” to the land Israel occupies is responsible for the continued unrest in the Middle East.

Message about your e-mail notices

rrw-logo-1I’m sorry if you signed up and subscribed to RRW and then without explanation you stop receiving those e-mail notices each time I post.  

Know that I can’t control those e-mails and have complained on many occasions to WordPress.  Another reader today alerted me to the problem. She, like most readers who stop getting the e-mails, think that I am (for some reason) not writing.

Refugee contractors planning ‘Week of Action’ against Trump

Where is Congress? The US taxpayer should not have to pay ‘non-profit’ groups who engage in Leftwing community agitation against the President!

Cut their funding, for goodness sake!

Adding insult to injury they are aligning themselves with the hardest of the Hard Left like CAIR, the ACLU, Indivisible, and Move-on.org. in the upcoming #NoMuslimBanEver event!

Just now I did my regular visit to the Refugee Council USA (lobbying consortium for refugee agencies) website and see this huge banner headline:

US Refugee admissions plummet even further

On the first of January we reported the facts about the extremely low refugee arrival numbers so far in this fiscal year (FY18 began on October 1, 2017) and now Michael Leahy (Breitbart) has a summary of where we stand during the first two weeks of January.

201 is the number for the first two weeks and the fact that it is low is the reason you are seeing so many articles popping up in local papers quoting resettlement agency employees wailing about Trump-the-meany.

Acting Asst. Secretary of State for PRM, Simon Henshaw, steps down

He says it has nothing to do with the fact that under the Donald Trump Administration the number of refugees being admitted to the US has plummeted. (I checked yesterday and in the first 2 weeks of January only around 200 came in.)

For new readers, the Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration is normally a political appointment used by a new President to set a tone in the Department of State reflecting his (or her) political view on the controversial issue.

No surprise! UN Secretary General (Socialist) Antonio Guterres pushing mass migration

In his argument posted at The Guardian, he says more legal pathways are needed because they (from the third world) are coming illegally (whether we like it or not).  Sounds like blackmail to me!

He also confirms my oft-repeated contention that it is the desire by industries for labor that we should be satisfying in the new borderless (dream) world.

Aspiring migrants, denied legal pathways to travel, inevitably fall back on irregular methods. This not only puts them in vulnerable positions, but also undermines governments’ authority. The best way to end the stigma of illegality and abuse around migrants is, in fact, for governments to put in place more legal pathways for migration, removing the incentives for individuals to break the rules, while better meeting the needs of their labour markets for foreign labour.

Temporary Protected Status for Syrians will expire March 31st and the wailing has begun

As we have learned repeatedly, Temporary Protected Status, a LEGAL immigration program, is not temporary.

You’ve been hearing the wailing about Salvadorans, who have had 17 years here in America to get over a natural disaster back home nearly 2 decades ago (having to leave the US by 2019) well wait till you hear the clamor for the Syrians who were first granted ‘temporary’ protection by Obama in 2012.

 

leahy, Durbin, Feinstein

The usual culprits! Three of the six US Senators who appealed to Obama for ‘temporary’ protection for Syrians already in the US. Senators Leahy, Durbin and Feinstein.

US taxpayer-funded resettlement agency has it nose (again) in Israel’s business

Many American Jewish groups are angry with the Israeli government because it is now taking steps to remove tens of thousands of economic migrants who entered Israel from Africa before it had built its great border wall.

If US private activist groups want to pressure Israel that is their business, however, when one of those groups is paid millions annually from the US Treasury it becomes our business what they do.  Of course it is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) I’m talking about. 

Why are we paying them a dime to take care of the refugees they resettle in the US while they muck around in world affairs?

Austria: Mahmoud took the money and went home!

They are trying it all over Europe—paying the migrants to go home!

It is something we have advocated here as well.  Believe me, it is cheaper than incarceration and deportation and way cheaper than migrants of all stripes living (for years!) off the generosity of the US taxpayer for food, shelter, education and medical care.

Here is the story from NPR (hat tip: Joanne):

Is Minnesota’s welcome mat still out for refugees?

That is the question that the Twin Cities Pioneer Press seeks to answer in a longish article published yesterday.

(Was it ever really out, or were Minnesotans kept in the dark and never asked?)

Employing a technique we have become accustomed to seeing, reporter Bob Shaw uses a family as his ‘poster family’ that seems to be the kind of people America can absorb—hardworking, speak English, grateful—so as to get your sympathy juices flowing.  But otherwise, I think it is was a pretty balanced and generally factual piece.

It’s long and chock-full of information.  Here are some snips that interested me and I wanted to comment on (emphasis is mine):

Media Research Center Prez: “Shadow-banning most sinister threat to free speech in history”

It is bad, but I’m not sure it is the worst threat to free speech.  In fact, if you aren’t a Twitter user you might not know what all the fuss is about.

If anyone asked me, I would say the worst threat is the kind of silencing that people like South Dakota’s Taneeza Islam use when they bully venues to shut down speaking events she and her ilk disapprove of by frightening owners/managers in to cancelling events. And, often frighten speakers in to silence.

That kind of intimidation is mean and personal and causes people to fear for their safety.

Germany to CAP asylum numbers at 200,000 annually in compromise decision

Nuts! Just nuts! 200,000 is an astronomical number and add to that the promise of 1,000 a month family reunification (chain migration) by late summer.  And, that is considered a compromise!

More Invasion of Europe news….

From Channel New Asia:

BERLIN: Germany will limit the number of asylum seeker arrivals to around 200,000 annually under a draft coalition agreement sealed Friday (Jan 12) in marathon talks between the country’s two biggest parties.

Hungary’s Orban has the international Left in panic mode

Invasion of Europe News….

And, you can tell by this article at HuffPo that paints him as an “authoritarian” that they are very very afraid of him and his growing “nationalist” power in Eastern Europe. They also see him exporting his views (about especially Muslim migration) to other European countries like Italy, Austria and (gasp!) even Germany.

President Trump gives us permission to speak!

With all the hullabaloo since yesterday about the President’s question about why we needed to import so many people from certain s***hole countries, I’m thinking that the great fear the PC crowd (pulling out the smelling salts) has is that when the President speaks straightforwardly (on anything), it gives permission for masses of Americans to do the same.  Speaking freely about critical issues facing our country could be the death of the hard Left and they know it.

Graham and Durbin chuckle

So who leaked the comment to the Washington Post? Some speculate it was someone connected to these two unhappy participants—Senator Dick Durbin and Senate pal Lindsey Graham

US News and World Report takes notice of South Dakota refugee controversy

“Refugee resettlements and interfaith dialogue is a part of a war.”

(State Senator Neil Tapio)

If you missed it, please visit my previous post on South Dakota, here.

In preparation for reading this you might also visit the work of Islam expert Steve Coughlin on how “Interfaith” groups came to be used by the Muslim Brotherhood in their work to promote Islam in America.  See my 2016 post here.

Lawrence Bartlett, State Department refugee chieftain sidelined?

The federal refugee contractors, that altogether receive over a half a billion a year of your money to place refugees in your towns and cities, must be using reporters at Reuters to get their messages out to the public.

Screenshot (1242)

I laughed when I saw that Reuters used a shot from when Bartlett headlined the Heritage Foundation ‘educational’ panel discussion on the US Refugee program last September. I had planned to do the same thing (use a shot from the panel discussion). When Heritage held this event, with inside the beltway types, I knew they had no clue about what was really happening with refugees in your towns and cities.   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/09/14/is-the-heritage-foundation-selling-you-out-on-unus-refugee-admissions-policy/

Federal refugee resettlement contractors blast Trump for ending ‘temporary’ status for Salvadorans

The Temporary Protected Status (legal!) program is designed to give a break (usually 18 months) for nationals, from another country who are already in the US when the natural disaster or civil war happens, to stay here until the country is on its feet again.

In March, Salvadorans (and El Salvador), will have had a 17 YEAR break.

For 17 years hundreds of thousands have had time to produce nearly 200,000 more children, get jobs, drivers licenses (and I will bet vote!).  See USCIS on TPS for El Salvador here.

Calling the program ‘temporary’ is a joke.

Vermont: Update on African machete attacker, pleads not guilty to attempted murder charge

The victim was “wicked scared” when I helped her.

(Resident at the hotel for the homeless in Shelburne, VT)

 

The Vermont Digger has an update on the dreadful story a few days ago about a crazed “man” with a machete violently attacking an elderly Meals on Wheels volunteer. See here.

Here is what they know so far.  Most likely a Somali (probably a Bantu) based on his native language.

South Dakota legislator wants more information on refugee costs, opposed by Lutherans and Muslim activist

If you are a new reader, you might want to catch up by having a look at my South Dakota archive especially as it relates to meatpackers and manufacturers (and mayors!) there pushing for ever-greater numbers of refugee workers. South Dakota was on my 2016 road trip to see some of those situations first hand.

And, see my previous post this morning to see who and what this South Dakota Senator is really up against—big powerful moneyed interests on the national level.

Here is the Argus Leader:
