“Soulmates”: Israel’s Netanyahu and Hungary’s Orban meet tomorrow in Israel

Here is an idea for Donald Trump today (the master at making Leftwing media heads explode).

Just as everyone is going crazy over Trump’s summit with Putin, he could invite Hungarian PM Viktor Orban and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House to discuss big beautiful border walls!

Haaretz calls them “soulmates.” Last year France 24 called them “spiritual brothers.”   http://www.france24.com/en/20170718-spiritual-brothers-netanyahu-orban-meet-budapest

 

I can dream, can’t I!

Today Orban will be in Israel meeting with Netanyahu and the far Left publication Haaretz gives us an idea of the magnitude of the media meltdown the US press would have if an Orban/Netanyahu/Trump event was scheduled!

 

Orbán Is Coming to Israel to Meet His Soulmate Netanyahu. Here’s How He’s Taking Down Hungary’s Democracy

 

[Article begins with long discussion about how the Hungarian government thwarted the gigantic 2015 wave of migrants entering Europe possibly with intelligence help from Israel.]

The message from the government to Hungarians was that refugees meant chaos and terror. It has been the message of a political campaign ever since, a campaign that has reaped unexpected dividends for Orbán, who will be making his first official visit to Israel on Wednesday.

Not only did it help his party Fidesz to a third consecutive landslide victory in the April election. It has made Orbán, the leader of a country of 10 million, the figurehead of the wave of populist politics sweeping Europe and a cherished partner and ideological soulmate of both Benjamin Netanyahu and the Trump administration.

[….]

While constructing their own fences, Hungarian officials inspected the ones built by Israel in the West Bank and on the Egyptian border. Israeli surveillance systems were purchased as well.

But on closer inspection, the Hungarian fence is smaller and less formidable than its Israeli counterparts. Its foundations are shallow, and at some places there are holes in the soft mud where people seem to have gotten through. Serbian criminal gangs offer to swiftly cut refugees a passage through and transport them all the way to Vienna for 3,000 euros per head. But the fence has still reduced the flow down to a trickle – and the Hungarian barrier has a couple of unique features.

[….]

Hungary is proud of its tough asylum policy. It claims it “has saved Europe,” and the Orbán government is demanding that the EU reimburse it for part of the billion euros it claims to have spent on the fences and “transit camps.” But whatever the efficiency of the fence complex, it’s obviously also a prop in the government’s political campaign at home.

United by a common enemy:  George Soros!

Orban and Soros

Soros organizations have now left Hungary:   https://www.reuters.com/article/us-soros-hungary/soros-foundations-to-quit-hungary-amid-political-hostility-idUSKBN1HQ2SJ

On October 30, 2015, in his weekly radio broadcast, Orbán supplied the face. It was of a man whose agents “support everything that weakens the nation-state” – the Hungarian-born billionaire and Holocaust survivor George Soros, “who maintains and finances the European human rights activism which encourages the refugees [to reach Europe].”

[….]

Soros’ Open Society Foundations has indeed been financing some of the nongovernmental organizations working on refugee rights. But that’s only a small part of what he has been doing in Hungary and other post-communist countries. For the last three decades, the Open Society Foundations has spent around $12 billion on promoting liberal democracy through education and activism.

[….]

Even if the government never mentions his Jewishness, Jews constantly feel it’s there. But not all Jews. At least one very prominent Jew is prepared to give cover to the anti-Soros campaign – Orbán’s host this week, Netanyahu.

Netanyahu and Orbán are so close on so many policies that Netanyahu’s anti-refugee policy could have been concocted in Budapest – and not just the new border fence with Egypt (which was originally built in response to a major terror attack in August 2011 but was quickly used by Netanyahu for political purposes and an obstacle to prevent the entrance of refugees).

[….]

The relationship with Orbán is so important to Netanyahu that he was willing to give him cover, despite the barely concealed anti-Semitic nature of the Soros campaign. In July 2017, Israel’s ambassador to Hungary, Yossi Amrani, at the request of the leadership of the Hungarian Jewish community, issued a statement urging the Orbán government to drop the anti-Soros campaign.

The very next day, in an unprecedented slap down to an ambassador, Netanyahu ordered the Foreign Ministry to retract Amrani’s statement and issue a clarification saying that it was “in no way meant to delegitimize criticism of George Soros, who continuously undermines Israel’s democratically elected governments by funding organizations that defame the Jewish state and seek to deny it the right to defend itself.”

As refugee numbers drop, resettlement contractors shrink and change focus

According to the LA Times, as paying refugee clients decline, refugee NGOs are now focusing on helping immigrants of all stripes on a longer term basis, presumably by raising private money!  Could this be a reawakening of real Christian charity?

I’m really sick of these stories.  I see them all over the country (this is the PR run-up to the President’s decision on how many refugees the US will take in FY19, a decision expected to be made public in September).

However, this story did have a few bits of information that are useful and make it worth posting.

Arrivals of refugees have hit historic lows. To stay afloat, resettlement agencies re-brand

The door to the nonprofit World Relief, tucked between a dance studio and a tutoring company on the second floor of a Garden Grove strip mall, still says “refugee resettlement services.”

world relief garden grove 2

In 2015, we obtained a World Relief internal letter instructing staff to not read Ann Corcoran’s blog!   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/10/31/former-refugee-contractor-ceo-america-needs-refugees-to-teach-us-how-to-love-one-another/

But it’s been nearly a year since a new refugee has walked through it. 

The number of refugees admitted to the U.S. since President Trump took office has dropped to its lowest level in decades. As a result, the office and dozens of other refugee resettlement operations across the country have been forced to close, shift their resources or re-brand.

One of the advances I’ve seen over the last decade is that the media now reports that the contractors*** are paid by the US taxpayers on a per refugee basis.

Nine nonprofits across the country are federally approved to resettle refugees and receive government funding for each case they handle. Until last year, each of them had an office in Southern California.

But World Relief and four others have shut down in the region, suspended operations, laid off staff or reduced their hours.

[….]

The office closed its refugee operation last July and shifted its resources to helping immigrants, which had long been a sideline of its operation.

[….]

The declines [in refugee admissions] left many agencies depleted of federal funding and struggling to survive.

Even in places where new refugees are still arriving, changes are afoot. The International Rescue Committee office in Glendale, which once resettled more than a thousand refugees each year, has received only about 100 people this year.

“The need just isn’t there in the same way anymore,” said Martin Zogg, the group’s executive director. “So we have to give people other jobs to do.”

More here.

I would like to think that the nine resettlement contractors listed below have seen the light and are raising private money and not depending on the money trees growing in Washington, DC for their charitable ‘good works,’ but my cynical side says they are just trying to stay in business until Trump is no longer President and the refugee spigot opens again.

Sorry if you are sick of me saying it, but there will be no long term change to our refugee policy and program as long as there are no changes in the law during the Trump years.

***I post these as often as I can because new readers need to know that these quasi-government groups (funded with taxpayer dollars) are also politically pushing for more immigration of all sorts in Washington—they are not simply refugee advocates.

The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare)!  From most recent accounting, here.

Trump Administration is protecting child border-crossers, as Dems demand they be reunited with crooks and liars

naive Americans

Seen around the world: Naive and ignorant Americans protest in New York City in June!   https://www.hindustantimes.com/world-news/nearly-2-000-children-have-been-separated-from-parents-at-us-border-in-six-weeks/story-gyE9i6QatYEQt6O79UJybM.html

 

You’ve probably heard snatches of information about how some of the ‘parents’ of children separated as they crossed the US border illegally were not even the parents of the children too young to speak for themselves, but only snatches because the mainstream media doesn’t want you to hear the truth.

So the White House has put out some data that you need to keep handy when discussing the issue with friends and family who are swallowing the Left’s talking points to paint the Trump Administration in the most evil terms.

I was planning to post this today anyway, but am tickled that John Binder at Breitbart had already written it up, so I only need to direct you to his story below.

Always remember readers that the Open Borders Left wants you to think the illegal border jumpers are REFUGEES. They are not! 

They would have to prove in an asylum process that they would be persecuted for things like race, religion, political persuasion etc. if returned to their home country.

Running from crime and seeking employment are not legitimate reasons to claim refugee status.

Binder at Breitbart:

Feds: 1-in-5 Illegal Aliens Crossing with Toddlers Are Criminals, a Danger

About 1-in-5 illegal alien adults crossing the United States-Mexico border with toddlers under the age of five are either criminals, not the child’s parent, or present some other danger to the child.

A new report released by the White House finds that of the 102 border crossing toddlers who were mandated by the courts to be reunited with the illegal alien adults they arrived with, 21 of the adults were found to be unfit to be reunited with the toddlers they crossed with.

This means that about 1-in-5 illegal alien adults arriving in the U.S. with toddlers are not eligible to have those children placed back in their care and custody after being separated at the border.

The White House outlined the cases of the 21 illegal alien adults who are unfit to be reunited with the toddlers they arrived with. Those cases include:

11 of the illegal aliens have criminal records:

Warrant for murder in Guatemala
Child cruelty and narcotics convictions
Suspected transnational criminal organization involvement and human trafficking
Outstanding criminal warrant in El Salvador
2 DUI convictions
Significant criminal history including assault conviction
Outstanding warrant in Florida for DUI
DUIs, assault, stolen vehicle
Robbery conviction
Wanted by El Salvador
Criminal charges including assault

7 of the illegal aliens not the parents of the toddler:

Adult said he is uncle, not father
Negative DNA match, adult indicated he is not the child’s father
Adult said she is grandmother, not mother
During DNA testing, adult disclosed she is not the child’s mother
Negative DNA match, still under investigation
Adult disclosed that she is grandmother, not the parent
Adult presented false birth certificate, still under investigation

2 of the illegal aliens present a danger to the toddler:

Before court order, adult was required to submit information and fingerprints of other adults in household where she will live with the child; background check on adult male in household shows an active warrant for aggravated criminal sexual assault of a 10-year-old female.

Child made allegations of abuse against adult

1 of the illegal aliens has a communicable disease:

Parent is being treated for communicable disease in ICE custody

Your job now is to spread this news far and wide because the mainstream media sure isn’t going to do it!

Update: Italy allows some of the latest migrants off the ships in Sicily

Relocating the migrants would “lead down the road to hell!”

(Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis)

 

Invasion of Europe news….

This is an update of yesterday’s post about Italy telling other EU countries that they needed to step-up and take in 50 each of the 450 African and Middle Eastern migrants rescued by two Frontex vessels over the weekend.

 

Italy rescue ship

The next generation! “New Europeans” carried ashore in Siccily

 

So far now, five countries have agreed to take 50 each (mostly men): Germany, France, Malta, Spain and Portugal.  So who will get the remaining 200?

From the BBC:

Italy allows migrants to land in Sicily

Italy will allow 450 migrants who were picked up from an overcrowded boat on Saturday to disembark in Sicily.

The decision was taken after Italy said that France, Germany, Malta, Portugal and Spain had each agreed to take 50 migrants.

Malta and Italy had earlier each insisted that the other country should allow the boat to dock.

Italy’s new government has toughened its policies in an effort to stem the flow of arrivals on its shores.

Of the 450, only 57 are women and children!

So far, only women and children, 57 people in all, have been allowed to land in the Sicilian port of Pozzallo.

The migrants were rescued from a boat in the Mediterranean by two vessels of the EU’s Frontex mission, but Italy was unwilling to allow them to land at its ports.

[….]

France and Malta said on Saturday they would take 50 each, with Germany, Spain and Portugal making a similar pledge on Sunday.

SLOVAKIA-CZECH-POLITICS-DIPLOMACY

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis

But Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis dismissed the request, saying relocating the migrants would “lead down the road to hell”.

Babis is exactly right—so what will happen with the hundreds that arrive tomorrow, the next day, the next week …..?

Libya: Once your rescue ships have picked them up, they are all yours!

And Libya restated its refusal to take in anyone from the ship.

“No, we will not accept any illegal migrants after they are rescued by rescue ships,” a coast guard spokesman told Reuters news agency.

Lastest migrant ships stopped by Italy, Italian PM calls on other EU countries to take them

Invasion of Europe news…..

He is calling their bluff!

Other European countries agreed just recently to share the burden with an invasion weary Italy, let’s see how many keep their word.

Italian Coast Guard ship Diciotti with migrants arrives in Trapani

Some of the latest batch of African men ‘rescued’ at sea.

So far Germany, France and Malta have agreed to 50 each which means 300 (of the original 450) are still in limbo.

I was looking for any mention of where the 450 are at right now.

Let me know if you see that important bit of information.

From The Local:

France, Germany, Malta will take 50 rescued migrants each: Italian PM

Germany said Sunday it had agreed with Italy to take in 50 of the 450 migrants aboard two EU border agency vessels, matching similar pledges by France and Malta.

“France and Malta will respectively take 50 migrants each… other countries will follow very quickly,” Conte said on his Facebook page on Saturday.

A German government spokeswoman later said in a statement that “Germany and Italy have agreed that, in view of the ongoing talks on intensified bilateral cooperation on asylum policy, Germany is ready to take in 50 people”.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte confirmed the deal on Sunday, writing on Facebook that 150 of the 450 migrants had now been accepted and the rest would soon be fairly distributed among other EU countries.

 

map major routes to Europe

I put that little green dot on the map to show you roughly where Malta is south of Italy.

 

“This is the solidarity and responsibility we have always asked from Europe and now, after the results obtained at the last European Council, it is starting to become reality,” Conte said.

“Let’s continue on this path with firmness and respect for human rights.”
Italy has since Saturday requested that its EU peers take some of the migrants stranded aboard the Frontex ships off the Italian coast.

Earlier, Italy and Malta had been at loggerheads again over whose responsibility it was to offer the 450 migrants on board the two EU Frontex vessels a safe harbour.

Conte said he had spent the day in contact with his 27 EU peers, reminding them that they had agreed at their end-June summit on the need to share the burden of dealing with the migrant influx.

[….]

The migrants, like thousands of others, had set sail from Libya in a single wooden vessel which was identified early Friday while passing through waters under Malta’s jurisdiction.

Salvini turns away another ship

Interior Minister Matteo Salvini

But Italy’s far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who has authority over the country’s ports, on Friday refused to let them dock in the latest demonstration of his no-go stance on accepting more migrants.

Salvini insisted instead that the two Frontex vessels be instructed to “head south, to Libya or Malta”.

[….]

Salvini, who took office when Italy’s new populist government came to power on June 1st, wants to block any further migrant arrivals by boat and has banned NGO rescue ships from docking in Italian ports, accusing them of aiding human traffickers.

More here.  The article doesn’t say whether Salvini and Conte are on the same page with this latest batch of migrants.

So what happens with the next ship carrying hundreds????

Dear American readers, if you are sitting back and thinking this doesn’t involve you, think again. 

We have taken hundreds of Malta’s illegal aliens off their hands over the years ever since the Bush Administration waved a magic wand, declared the migrants “refugees,” and said that we would relieve Malta’s burden and resettle some of these men to America.

The last time I looked at the data, the Trump Administration, continuing the legally questionable practice, had taken 123 fake refugees from Malta in this fiscal year (as of May 31).  See my post here.  I’m guessing the Prez has no clue what the State Department is doing regarding Malta.

So if Malta takes 50 of this bunch, how many of those will end up in your American town?

White House aide fired after reportedly clashing with Stephen Miller over refugee numbers

“This is a disaster for the bureau. She is really a good ally.”

(Anonymous State Department official)

That quote above is all you need to know!  If the Deep-staters at the US State Department consider her an ally, then she needed to go.

stephen miller serious

She reportedly butted heads with Stephen Millier

As I’ve been mentioning, this is the time of the year when Administration wrangling over refugees really begins to heat up.  That is because the President submits his determination to Congress in September in which he tells them how many refugees and from where they will come when the feds begin to admit the next batch of refugees for the next fiscal year (FY19 begins October 1).

I told you here that State Department resettlement contractors want 75,000 in the coming year. It looks like this year will barely break the 20,000 mark setting a record for the least number of refugees entering the US since the Refugee Act of 1980 was signed in to law by Jimmy Carter.***

For new readers, the contractors are paid on a per refugee head basis, so there is never any incentive for them to take a breather and agree to slow the flow.

The article at Foreign Policy says that the ousted staffer was a Trumper since the campaign days. But, then I wonder why she was so cozy with the career professional resettlers in the State Department who are working to undermine (through leaks to contractors and the media) the President’s policy on refugees.

White House Official Who Advocated for Refugees Sacked and Escorted From Office

A senior White House official, Jennifer Arangio, was fired Thursday and escorted from her office, ending a turbulent tenure that saw her clashing with President Donald Trump’s most hard-line advisors over human rights and refugee issues, according to several current and former U.S. officials.

The officials said Arangio, a senior director for international organizations and alliances at the National Security Council, had fallen out of favor with Trump aide Stephen Miller over the number of refugees who should be allowed to enter the United States.

Jennifer Arangio

Arangio bio here:   https://www.commandcg.com/jarangio_bio.html

She had also sparred with Miller over continuing U.S. participation in international negotiations on a global migration compact, insisting that the United States could better shape international policies on migration from inside the tent.

She lost the argument, but Miller remained embittered by the rift, the officials said. When Arangio sought his endorsement for a position in the State Department, he refused to take a meeting with her.

Adding to the tension, Arangio had defended the State Department’s embattled refugee bureau amid campaigns by other top Trump aides to dismantle or defund it — efforts that were ultimately rebuffed by Congress.

“This is a disaster for the bureau,” one State Department official said. “She is really a good ally.”

The White House refused to answer questions on Arangio’s removal, which was first reported by Politico. “We don’t comment on personnel matters,” a spokesman said.

Arangio had been investigated internally a year ago for allegedly bullying a White House subordinate. But there was no indication that the issue was the reason for her dismissal.

She failed to secure the leadership of an important UN job for Trump’s pick. Because the entire international open borders Left, including our refugee contractors, were against him, I wonder did she try hard enough?

One of her duties was to promote the administration’s controversial candidate for a top international migration job. It ended in a high-profile failure. In June, United Nations members voted against appointing Ken Isaacs, the Trump administration’s handpicked candidate, to head the International Organization for Migration. [The IOM is part of the UN now, and Trump really should consider cutting funding to the pro-more-refugees-for-America organization.—ed]

The vote was seen as a sharp rebuke of the president.

Isaacs, the vice president at Christian aid organization Samaritan’s Purse, caught flak during his candidacy for past social media posts and radio interviews in which he disparaged Muslims. He denied he was anti-Islam.

***Just remember that lowering the numbers is not enough.  Once Donald Trump leaves office they will go full steam ahead to make up for ‘lost time.’   The law itself must be reformed and the first thing that must go are the resettlement contractors listed below!

Here are the big nine ‘non-profit’ organizations that monopolize all refugee resettlement in the US.

Preacher at Al-Aqsa Mosque, following terror attack there, glorifies Martyrdom, but suggests Jews\Israel is using the terror attack to take over the Mosque

Video of Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi in his twice weekly lesson at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, referring to the terrorist attack that took place at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israeli border policemen were murdered

Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi: "Let us return to what happened today (July 14, 2017). First of all, my brothers, we do not want anyone to criticize us. We view every person that defends the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the religion of Islam as a person that has abandoned his world for Allah, and view him as one of the righteous, the Martyrs (Shahids), and the God-fearing whose actions are acceptable in the eyes of Allah – but we say that it is possible that the supporters of Satan used him to achieve their goals… The police station – I remember this from when I was a child – is a place where a Jew was once killed. What did they do? They took over a whole building because a Jew was killed there. According to their customs, everywhere that [a Jew] was killed it is their right to place a memorial monument to the killed. This is something we know, and I am sure that everyone knows it, and it cannot be that anybody that wants to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque would put the Al-Aqsa Mosque in this dangerous situation unless, as we said, they are using their tricks to draw this person into the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and that is what happened in our opinion."

Trump to Europeans: You are losing your culture!

I was telling a reporter just yesterday that perhaps one of Donald Trump’s greatest gifts to us is that, with his penchant for speaking his mind, he gives us permission to say what we believe in our hearts, but may fear saying.

So here he is in the UK speaking frankly to The Sun, as reported by The Hill:

 

Trump: Europe is ‘losing its culture’ because of immigration

President Trump is railing against what he described as the migration of “millions and millions of people” into Europe, declaring that the continent is “losing its culture” to refugees and asylum seekers from the Middle East and Africa.

In an interview with the British tabloid The Sun published Thursday, Trump said that it is a “shame” that European leaders had allowed so many migrants to enter their countries’ borders.

President Donald Trump speaks at a rally in Great Falls, Mont.

“Allowing the immigration to take place in Europe is a shame,” the U.S. president told the tabloid, which his owned by conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch.

I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it’s never going to be what it was and I don’t mean that in a positive way,” he continued.

Trump’s publicized comments came shortly after he arrived in the U.K. for a long-awaited trip on the heels of a tense set of meetings at the annual NATO summit in Brussels, where he delivered a blistering criticism of European allies and demanded that member nations pay more for defense.

The president’s comments during his interview with The Sun, however, highlighted Trump’s deeply held skepticism of immigration and resurfaced a line of attack that he had used often on the campaign trail – that Europe was being overrun by non-Europeans and was quickly becoming a shell of what it once was.

“I think you are losing your culture,” he told the tabloid….

The Hill reporter goes on to say, but, but, but, the numbers coming in have slowed.

I have seen that talking point everywhere. So, even if the numbers of migrants have diminished somewhat in the last two years, the damage was done when hundreds of thousands of Africans and Middle Easterners previously got in and are still there roaming around Europe!

See my ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive (which I have been adding to for years) by clicking here.

Endnote: As regular readers know, I watch CNN for a bit every morning to learn what has their panties-in-a-wad each day, and boy were they freaking out about The Sun interview, but not one word about this part of the interview—-the immigration/cultural destruction comments!

Minnesota gubernatorial candidate says he will withdraw state from refugee program

It is a good campaign message, but in reality will get MN no where.

How quickly people forget that in the last few years three other Republican governors made a big show out of withdrawing their states from the federal program (Texas, Kansas, New Jersey) and of course they still get refugees with Texas presently being the top ‘welcoming’ state in the nation.

 

st_cloud_somalis

Somali population in St. Cloud and elsewhere in MN is increasing.

 

As they did with those states, the US State Department will simply turn the whole resettlement plan for the state over to a non-profit (contractor) group to manage.  (The Tennessee case is on appeal and if by a miracle, TN wins, then that strategy could go up in flames for the feds.)

Don’t get me wrong, there are political considerations for Mr. Johnson as he is up against former governor Tim Pawlenty in the primary, it is definitely worth discussing in the campaign.  And, as governor there will be many things the state government could do to rein-in the program by reforming the state’s welfare system, etc.

Indeed, Pawlenty was a Republican establishment governor of the state during the expansion of refugee resettlement to St. Cloud and must have known what was happening.  I would say look to his campaign donors and see if he was being funded by big business (poultry!) interests looking for a steady supply of cheap labor to the St. Cloud area.  I presume Mr. Johnson has some good investigators at work to discover Pawlenty’s ties to the program while he was governor.  LOL! Any photos of Pawlenty snuggling with the Lutheran resettlement people?

Actually, I don’t mean to get into a long detailed discussion when I don’t know much about MN politics, but the bottom line is that there is not one silver ...extreme language deleted... save Minnesota.  It will take a concerted effort and lots of really hard work by dedicated individuals and groups at all political levels to turn this ship now.

And, a very important effort will be to make the issue of refugee resettlement/states rights a talking point throughout the gubernatorial campaign as a way of further educating the voters.

From KNSI radio:

CANDIDATE WOULD WORK TO END REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT

(KNSI) – Gubernatorial candidate Jeff Johnson says, if elected, he’ll head to Washington, DC and tell the government that Minnesota is no longer participating in the Refugee Resettlement Program.

“And just set forth the story, and say here is what we’ve done, we’ve done more than any other state by a lot and now we’re no longer interested in participating. I think the Trump administration would work with us on that.”

pawlenty-johnson

Tim Pawlenty (left), an establishment Republican, is facing Jeff Johnson on right.  Readers, don’t be confused, this is not the same Jeff Johnson, city councilman, we previously reported on.

On with KNSI’s Ox in the Afternoon, the Hennepin County Commissioner says the program has greatly affected the St. Cloud area and it’s simply not working for Minnesotans.

“To suggest that this is about race or anything else, it’s not, it’s about just being realistic and saying what is this costing, and we don’t know the answer to that because the government won’t tell us.”

He says Minnesota has the highest number of refugees per capita in the country, and has taken in more secondary refugees than all other states combined.

“Minnesota has 2 percent of the nation’s population, yet 13 percent of the nation’s refugees.”

Johnson says, while immigration is governed by federal law, that doesn’t mean that we just roll over as a state any longer.

Listen to Ox’s full interview with Johnson here.
