Refugees trickle in to Twin Falls, Idaho

Add “trickle” to our descriptive media word-list about this years’ refugee flow to America.

Previously we joked about “plummeting” numbers (dip, tumble, drop dramatically, drastically decline, etc.). Now we can add “trickle.”

lavinia-and-chobani

Back in the good ‘ol days, Lavinia Limon (USCRI) was sending Mr. Chobani Yogurt (Hamdi Ulukaya) his workers for Twin Falls.

Mr. Chobani Yogurt must be a bit annoyed as the refugee worker stream to his Twin Falls yogurt plant must be trickling too.

And, heck, he even lost pal, doyenne of the refugee contractors, Lavinia Limon last fall. See here.

This article is just another of the ho-hum planted media stories about that mean ol’ Donald Trump and how his refugee slowdown is hurting their refugee industry.

It wouldn’t be worth posting except for the blatant admission that plummeting refugee arrivals are hurting the contractors’ budgets. 

For longtime readers you are likely thinking—well we know that!

However, ten years ago, when I started writing this blog about the flawed US Refugee Admissions Program, the media didn’t know that refugee contracting agencies*** were paid by the head to place refugees, so I see this paragraph below as progress!

From the Idaho State Journal:

There are challenges that come with taking in fewer refugees. It’s hard to manage the Refugee Center’s budget, Rwasama said, because the center receives federal funding per refugee who arrives. “Everything is impacted when you don’t have funding to provide services.”

More here.

I was glad to see that they say they are taking better care of the formerly placed refugees since they are receiving so few new ones.

Rwasama is CSI Refugee Center director Zeze Rwasama.  It has never been adequately explained just how the College of Southern Idaho became a subcontractor for USCRI, one of the nine (soon to be eight?) federal contractors.

Nevertheless, we are happy to see that the admission is being made regularly and the media is now reporting that:

Federal resettlement contractors (and their subcontractors) receive payment from you, the US taxpayer, on a per refugee head basis!

Progress!

*** I post the contractor list almost every day because I want new readers to know exactly who is responsible for driving the US Refugee Admissions Program (in addition to the UN!).

The number in parenthesis is the percentage of the nine VOLAGs’ income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees, line them up with (low paying) jobs in food production and cleaning hotel rooms, and get them signed up for their services!  From most recent accounting, here.

Antifa, CAIR and the Southern Poverty Law Center work together to silence speech

You haven’t seen it on cable news, or on the pages of the Washington Post or the New York Times, but last weekend brazen domestic terrorists working on behalf of Islamists shut down speaking events they disapproved of in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

This extremist tactic of intimidating speaking venues, such as hotels, isn’t new, but it is on the upswing in the age of Trump. And, I think that is because the Hard Left has really lost it, their frustration and anger at losing the White House must have pushed them psychologically over the edge. They are very dangerous people.

Our friend James Simpson has the full story here at The Daily Caller.

Here are a few snips:

Brannon Howse

Brannon Howse is the organizer of the events shutdown by anti-free speech domestic terrorists.   http://www.worldviewweekend.com/tv/video/marxist-islamists-groups-shut-down-worldview-weekend-events-how-we-are-losing-our-freedom

Antifa groups used information from the Southern Poverty Law Center to successfully shut down four conferences on the threat of Islam scheduled in Wisconsin and Minnesota last weekend.

The hotels slated for the events were flooded with threatening calls, and the organizers voluntarily canceled one of the events following numerous warnings that it would not be safe. A fifth conference in Des Moines, Iowa carried on in defiance, despite leftists showing up to disrupt the proceedings.

The conferences were hosted by Worldview Weekend, a conservative Christian organization that produces radio and TV shows and sponsors events nationwide. The SPLC posted the locations for these venues, after which Antifa groups urged their members through social media to attend events and swamp the venues with threatening calls and messages.

[….]

The conferences sought to expose how leftists supported by George Soros, the John Templeton Foundation and other donors are intimidating America into silence by labeling anyone who exposes them as “racists,” “Islamophobes” and “white supremacists.” An event last fall featuring this author and DHS whistleblower Philip Haney was canceled by the venue following a similar campaign from Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) operatives.

On that last line, see my post Wednesday on the slick Taneeza Islam (former CAIR-MN civil rights activist) who practiced these same tactics in South Dakota.

Simpson explains what happened and then wraps with this:

Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim and now Christian apologist who heads the Truth In Love project, was slated to speak at a number of the canceled events. He reacted strongly in a video about the cancellations posted on Saturday:

“Who shut us down folks? The Islamo-Marxist-Fascist oppressors in this nation, the same groups that we’ve been traveling around this nation warning you about…. How did that happen? It started with CAIR… the front group for the Muslim Brotherhood. Then they’ve joined with the Southern Poverty Law Center… Then they got Antifa involved… and we know their M.O. – they’re domestic terrorists… If you think we are living in a free nation any more… that this is the land of the free and home of the brave, we better wake up soon. Religious liberty, the right of assembly, the right of our speech, is gone. This is the M.O. now. This is the tactic they are using to shut us down.”

Watch Pastor Shahram Hadian, here:

 

 

Simpson continues….

Howse broadcast an hour-long live special Sunday night to describe what happened and the issues that would have been covered in these events.

He said he is considering legal action, among other options, and that he will also be releasing a movie this fall recounting this weekend’s events and many others he has witnessed over the last 12 months.

“The things that are happening represent an existential threat to our rights as Americans and our very way of life,” he said.

Read all of it here.

The greatest threat!

Everyone must make sure to spread this news far and wide through whatever means are available to you because the mainstream media won’t do it!  The threat is real and it is the biggest threat facing America today—the silencing of our voices.

And, I’m going to nag all of you to find avenues of speech for yourselves!

Write blogs, facebook pages, open twitter and gab accounts, create e-mail lists to friends and family, write letters to editors, and if necessary speak in your churches and other civic groups because the more of you willing to speak, the harder it will be for them to silence us all.

Press Release: International Rescue Committee (again) on low Trump refugee admission numbers

In a press release dated yesterday, the Manhattan-based International Rescue Committee (IRC) asks its followers to contact members of Congress and Senators to pressure the Prez to fulfill the 45,000 refugee CEILING set by Trump last fall.

brexit-news-tony-blair-1072435

From his perch in Manhattan, Miliband pulls down a nearly $700,000 annual salary (doing well by doing good!) while he dabbles in UK politics, specifically the Brexit controversy.   https://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/856974/Brexit-news-Tony-Blair-EU-latest-news-Concordia-summit-David-Miliband

At the present rate the Trump State Department will admit about half that number and the resettlement contractors*** are shaking in their boots.

Each refugee admitted represents money, your money, to their budgets and reports are that at least one of the nine that have monopolized all resettlement to the US for a decade might not survive.

That is not true for the IRC, it is rolling in money….

Which reminds me (as I read this press release)—where is “moneybags” Miliband? Why is he not quoted? Too busy mucking around back home in the UK?

This press release wouldn’t be worth mentioning except for one nugget I found interesting (and for the fact that I love writing about this super rich Manhattan-based taxpayer-funded organization making decisions for small city/town America.).

Here is some of it:

New York, NY, April 11, 2018 — Midway through the 2018 fiscal year, which ends September 30, just 10,584 refugees have been resettled to the United States. By contrast, 39,098 refugees were welcomed to the U.S. in the first half of the 2017 fiscal year—even with the slowdown on admissions due to the Trump Administration’s refugee bans. This decline in refugee admissions represents a stark 73 percent year-over-year drop. The International Rescue Committee (IRC) projects that a series of excessive red-tape vetting and processing changes will result in no more than 23,000 refugees being resettled in FY18, barely achieving 50 percent of the ceiling.

[They are so deceptive, the reason the number is so high, 39,098, for the first half of FY17 is because Obama presided over October, November, December and most of January and his outgoing State Department was pouring them in as fast as they could before Trump was inaugurated.—ed]

Now this next bit is rich!

Here we have Hans (most likely still a Dutch national) who works for a British national (David Miliband) lecturing us about “core American values.”

Said Hans Van de Weerd, Vice President, US Programs, International Rescue Committee:

“Halfway through FY18, the U.S. is establishing a record on resettlement that runs counter to core American values of freedom and welcome and strategic interests abroad.

I can’t believe that they think they can still sell this silly notion, that somehow by curtailing immigration to the US from Muslim countries, we make Islamic terrorists angry (angrier?) with us.

Hans bald

Hans Van de Weerd lectures us on “core American values!”

“Drastically diminished refugee arrivals have detrimental consequences for U.S. national security and foreign policy interests, including fueling the anti-American narratives of the very terrorist organizations we aim to defeat. The Trump Administration must change course in the second half of FY18 and meet its commitment to admit 45,000 refugees.” [For the umpteenth time, the 45,000 is a CEILING, a cap, NOT a target!—ed]

Now, here comes the part that interested me most. 

We know that the contractors have been dependent on the large number of SIVs entering the US (Iraqi and Afghans who supposedly gave us support at some point) to help feed their budgets (see my recent post here).  However, apparently even those numbers are dropping (eeeek!).

Shocking drop in March in admissions of those who assisted U.S. missions

Without explanation, only 510 Iraqi and Afghan Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) recipients arrived during the month of March, a more than 68 percent drop compared to average monthly arrivals in FY17.

Total SIV arrivals overall in the first half of FY18 have declined by 28 percent compared to the same time period in FY17.

I wonder (if there is a slowdown), if it is because they are running out of places to put them.  Supposedly most go to San Diego or Northern Virginia where there is an overload of  SIVs and as we reported here, they aren’t finding work.

U.S.-affiliated Iraqis (P-2s) left behind

These are supposed ‘beneficiaries’ and their family members. They always say they are translators, but they could have been taking out the garbage.  See here.

U.S.-affiliated Iraqis are individuals who provided critical services, like translation, to U.S. missions abroad and now face persecution as a result.

Conservative estimates suggest that there are approximately 50,000 Iraqis with close affiliations with the U.S. government waiting for interviews to have their cases for resettlement processed.

Yet, only 36 U.S.-affiliated Iraqis have arrived in FY18.

Then here is Hans’ wrap-up:

It’s time to pressure the Administration to pick up the pace on refugee resettlement. Take action now.

Click here to see what they want their groupies to tell Congress.

You should tell your member of Congress and US Senators what you think too, but honestly I have little hope they will get off their duffs and do anything, so right now, it is best to Contact the White House and tell the Prez to hang tough!

And, for fun, ask him why we pay David Miliband over a half a million a year so he can do his anti-Brexit political agitation work in his home country.

See my David Miliband archive here.  Waaahhh! What will I do when he finally goes home!

Brookings has questions about refugee policy for Secretary of State nominee Pompeo

This is really a kind of ‘nothing-burger’ article from a policy wonk at the Brooking’s Institution attempting to influence the Far Left Dems to ask questions about refugees when Trump’s new pick to head the US State Department, Mike Pompeo, goes before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today.

 

Pompeo and Trump

Trump: Mike Pompeo and I are on the same wavelength!   https://www.today.com/video/trump-mike-pompeo-and-i-are-on-the-same-wavelength-1184613443805?v=b

 

Here is a bit of it.  We can definitely agree with Jessica Brandt‘s opener—the Trump Administration needs to staff-up at DOS. But, they must assure people loyal to the President and his policies are in those appointed jobs!

Tomorrow [today—-ed], former CIA Director Mike Pompeo, President Trump’s pick to replace Rex Tillerson as secretary of state, will come before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The hearing is an opportunity for congressional leaders to question him on a broad range of consequential subjects. Resourcing the State Department should be first on the list. It is difficult, if not impossible, to craft and implement an effective set of strategies on any foreign policy issue without the personnel in place to do so.

brandtj_portrait

Jessica Brandt is “a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a David Rockefeller Fellow of the Trilateral Commission.”

But exploring Pompeo’s views on refugee policy should also be a high priority. That’s for three reasons.

First, Pompeo has a history of expressing deep distaste for refugee policies he views as lax. While in Congress, he cosponsored a bill calling for an immediate ban on the entry of all refugees, regardless of their country of origin. The measure would have gone farther than then-candidate Trump’s controversial proposal to bar Muslim immigration. Later that year, after returning home from a study tour focusing on the migration crisis in Europe, he argued in support of Trump’s instincts on these issues in the Wall Street Journal.

You can read the rest yourself by clicking here.

Then this closer made me laugh. These Leftists can’t help themselves. In an article at the venerable Brookings InstitutionMs. Brandt can’t resist the snark!

Pompeo’s answers to these questions could reveal a great deal about how he plans to approach a sensitive, consequential issue. I hope he plans to be more forward leaning than his predecessor. But given his record, I doubt it.

And, btw, what the heck is “forward leaning?” I think we know….

South Dakota: Meet Taneeza Islam, your friendly Muslim (activist) next door!

I wish I was tech-savvy and knew how to design a Bull S*** meter for stories like this one.

Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)/Muslim Brotherhood activist to speak in Huron, South Dakota on Sunday (April 15th) to assure all of you that there is nothing to fear from migration of Muslim political activists to the Great Plains!

She believes in meeting those who belong to “vilified” groups, she says.

That is so funny because, by intimidating the speaking venues, she actually shut down events in South Dakota a few months ago where speakers who disagree with her political views were scheduled to speak.  Wasn’t she vilifying them with her actions?

It would serve her right if the tables were turned on her and she was silenced! (But, we don’t do that because we believe in free speech!).

See my Taneeza Islam archive here.

From the Huron Plainsman 

(Sub-headline should read CAIR political activist to speak to ‘Connecting Cultures’)

‘Discussion on Diversity’ focused on Muslims

People are encouraged to attend a free “Discussion on Diversity” featuring Taneeza Islam of Sioux Falls at 1 p.m. Sunday, April 15, at Top Floor Events.

Screenshot (374)

A second-generation Muslim who was born in Michigan, Islam will talk about the Islam religion, as well as immigrants and refugees.

An RSVP-only lunch will be served during the event for a small fee (notice luncheon time change). Beverages and brownies will be available for everyone during the event.

Please RSVP lunch reservations to Amy L. Bennett at jampyview@yahoo.com and provide your name and the number of guests.

“We’re not trying to change beliefs, we’re trying to add value to our own,” said Amy Bennett, a member of Connecting Cultures in Huron, who was instrumental in organizing this program, along with Rhonda Kludt, Kim Rieger and Fern Marie Mattke, who helped secure a Thrivent Action Team Grant.

“Being Muslim in our nation can be very tenuous and painful for some,” said Bennett, who is Jewish. “How can we fulfill their lives without treating them like that? We want to respect someone else’s place or opinion. I’m willing to listen to your story and how it impacts you and understand how you feel that way.”

Bennett said she noticed a site for Taneeza Islam one day when she was looking at Facebook, and explored her further on YouTube.

“Her video was welcoming and approachable — with such a hot topic,” Bennett said. “We shouldn’t be afraid to have hard conversations.

What we should be afraid of is when we don’t have any conversations.”

Tell that to Ms. Islam!

At this point the Huron Plainsman gives a recitation of highlights from Ms. Islam’s bio, but fails to mention that she was CAIR Minnesota’s Civil Rights Director stirring up trouble for a St. Cloud high school in 2010, see here (among other things!).

In Islam’s own words:

“I believe the best way to overcome intolerance and hate is to actually meet a person from the group that is being vilified,” she said.

“I am the norm of what American Muslims are really like.”

LOL! But, that is precisely what we fear the most—that you, Ms. Islam, are the norm!

I’m guessing, but I think CAIR/Muslim Brotherhood wanted an Islamic political activist in South Dakota when they saw the opposition growing to more refugee resettlement there and Taneeza Islam is it.

Maybe someone should contact Ms. Bennett, since she wants to hear different viewpoints, and ask her to hold another luncheon for the opposing view on Muslim migration, CAIR, and sharia law in America! Wouldn’t that be the fair thing to do?

Australia “dumb” deal update: Aussie Libs want US to take families

Let me say at the outset that the Australia deal struck by the Obama Administration in its waning months is dumber than dumb and Donald Trump should have followed his first instincts and cancelled the whole thing (as even the Australians suspected he would) and been done with it in February of 2017.

Here we see that Australian immigration official Peter Dutton is being blamed for not allowing an Afghan family (who attempted to break in to Australia illegally) that have been split between the mainland and offshore detention to apply to come to the US.

peter-dutton1

Dutton’s call to rethink the 1951 UN Refugee Convention has to make the No Borders agitators crazy!  Out to get him now for sure!*

Not one word in The Guardian story about whether the US has any say in this! 

I believe the US State Department has already said that we aren’t taking extended families of the detainees (so far 220 of Australia’s rejects, mostly Muslim men, have been airlifted to Your Town, USA!).

For new readers, Australia had such an awful problem with boat people attempting to break in to their country that they made a new policy.  Anyone breaking in would be detained in offshore detention facilities and would never be admitted to the mainland.  That was about 5 years ago and they are sticking to the policy.  However! Lefties in Australia have been beating up the government ever since, so they found a way to wiggle out—thanks to Obama—by sending those they won’t grant refugee status to to America!

The Guardian:

Dutton urged to allow refugee families in Australia to apply for US resettlement

Split up refugee families stuck in limbo because of Australian government policy could be reunited if Peter Dutton let them apply for US resettlement from Australia, the opposition has said.

The comment follows revelations by Guardian Australia that a family of four had been split between Nauru and Australia since 2014.

Shayne Neumann

Leftwing “shadow minister” Shayne Neumann blames Dutton for not allowing sick Shiite Muslim family to reunite and apply for US resettlement.  Hey! Neumann, why should the US take on Australia’s migration problems!

Australian Border Force has told the 27-year-old daughter on Nauru that they could be reunited but only if her mother and sister returned to the island. The mother is in Australia confined to a wheelchair and awaiting surgery, and doctors have said she cannot go back.

While the mother and one daughter are in Australia they cannot apply for resettlement in the US, offered under a deal struck between the Australian government and the Obama administration. More than 220 have been resettled, out of a promise of “up to 1,200”.

By the way, something must have slowed the flow to the US.  Last report was over a month ago. Wonder what that is all about!

“Labor strongly supports the US refugee resettlement agreement and wants all eligible refugees – including those in Australia for medical treatment – to have the opportunity to apply for resettlement in the US,” the shadow minister for immigration, Shayne Neumann, said.

“The long-term issue of asylum seekers from Manus Island and Nauru in Australia could have been avoided entirely if Peter Dutton simply allowed eligible refugees in Australia the opportunity to apply to resettle in the United States.”

Nuts!  No offense to Dutton, but the US gets some say in this!

More here.

Asylum shopping!

Follow links back and see that this family with its health issues (including mental health issues) would be a huge burden on US taxpayers!  Legitimate refugees are to ask for asylum in the first safe country they enter, however, the whole system has been perverted and that is why the 1951 UN Refugee Convention should be trashed.

I have dozens of posts on the Australia “dumb” deal, click here to learn more.

*Don’t miss Dutton calls for reconsideration of outdated 1951 UN Refugee Convention, here.

Contact the White House!  Tell the President to cut it off now.  220 is too many already!

Why is it our job to clean out UN refugee camps?

And, why is the Trump Administration continuing refugee resettlement started for no other reason (by George Bush and Barack Obama) than to please the UN?

anne-richard-and-unhcr

Obama Secretary of State for PRM, Anne Richard with then UNHCR, now Secretary General of the UN Guterres, decided that the US should take 50,000 from the DR Congo.

Previous presidents jumped to the UN piper’s tune and said sure, the US will step up to take the Bhutanese and the DR Congolese because the UN asked us to.

These people were not our responsibility, no one could say we caused the problems that resulted in their care by the UN.

We have no strategic interest or reason other than to make the UN happy (and some big employers who want the cheap labor, the Dems who want voters and the contractors who want the payola!).

(By the way, there are other examples of cleaning out camps and of course the largest over the years have been the UN camps in Kenya, but the numbers have dramatically slowed in the last year, not so for the two I’m writing about now.  And, of course the UN has no interest in cleaning out the Palestinian camps and sending those people to other Arab countries.)

 

DR Congo express to America….

map DR Congo

The largest ethnic group of refugees coming to the US right now are DR Congolese. In the first 6 months of this fiscal year (’18) we admitted 2,569.

In 2013 the Obama State Department told the UN High Commissioner for Refugees that we would take 50,000 from the DR Congo over five years.

Checking Wrapsnet just now, I see that we have taken 40,899 since that promise was made, however going back to FY10, I see we are now at 49,476.  

Will the flow ever stop?

Based on the Bush Bhutanese deal, the answer is likely NO!

Nearly 100,000 Bhutanese scattered across America…

In 2006 we told the UN we would take 60,000 Bhutanese off their hands over five years.

These displaced people are really Nepali people that were kicked out of Bhutan and Nepal wouldn’t take them back.

map nepal and bhutan

Other western countries promised to take another 30,000.

Here in 2015 the UN reported on its “success” at that point in time:

A core group of eight countries came together in 2007 to create this opportunity for Bhutanese refugees to begin new lives: Australia (5,554), Canada (6,500), Denmark (874), New Zealand (1002), the Netherlands (327), Norway (566), the United Kingdom (358) and the United States of America (84,819).

Now 10 years after Bush Asst. Secretary of State Ellen Sauerbrey said we would take 60,000, we are at 95,841 (as of today). 

In the last 6 months, an additional 1,925 ‘refugees’ of Nepali origin that we call Bhutanese were resettled across the country.  I have to laugh because the total number in 2006 was 108,000 and between the US and other countries we have far surpassed that number now, so it begs the question—have more people arrived at the camps looking for resettlement in recent years?  (See one of my many posts on fuzzy math!)

Here is where 95,481 have been place in the US in just 10 years!

 

Screenshot (372)

 

Screenshot (368)

The numbers are difficult to read even in the original.  The top five ‘welcoming’ states are Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, New York and Georgia.  And, can you believe it, Hawaii, the state that is hankering for more diversity got zip!

 

I don’t believe there is a law that says we must take refugees that the UN wants us to take!

And, thus, I think it is time that the Trump Administration distanced itself from the dictates of the United Nations.  In fact, maybe it is time to do more than that! Let’s take the lead in rethinking the entire 1951 UN Refugee Convention.

Surely, if we are going to offer ‘welcome’ to legitimate refugees, we have smart people who would know how to pick the most worthy candidates and not just take in ethnic groups wholesale because the UN tells us we must!

See Nayla Rush writing at the Center for Immigration Studies about the haphazard choices being made (even under Donald Trump!).

See my archive on the Bhutanese by clicking here.  The thing that has brought them to the media’s attention over the years is the fact that they have a high suicide rate in America.  In fact, for years leading up to 2006, they steadfastly maintained that they did not want to be “scattered to the four winds.”

Contact the White House, tell the President:  As your Administration prepares refugee plans for the coming fiscal year, stop asking how high, when the UN says jump!  We will pick our own refugees, thank you very much!

Dear Mr. President, Invite the victorious Orban to the White House

Yesterday Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban won for Europe (although most countries don’t know it) an astounding election victory for Western Civilization.

Orban and Soros

If the President invited Orban to the White House it would strike a mighty blow against his own nemesis—George Soros!

If President Trump wanted to put icing on his recent immigration control cake, he should invite Orban to the White House and give him a lavish state dinner. Such a move would turn the whole world on its head!

Heck, use the occasion to kick start a discussion about dumping the 1951 UN Refugee Convention. (See here.)

There are many stories about Orban’s win, but Politico is a good choice to quote since they can’t control their animus (in supposed news reporting!) toward the man and what he stands for!

 

Orbán wins landslide to secure third straight term

BUDAPEST — Viktor Orbán’s right-wing Fidesz party won a landslide victory in Hungary’s general election on Sunday, setting the stage for the prime minister to pursue his nationalistic vision and fight more battles with Brussels.

The result gives Orbán a third consecutive term as prime minister and a strong platform from which to further rail against migrants and Muslims, stage crackdowns on NGOs and mount strong resistance to greater EU integration.

More clashes between Budapest and EU institutions, particularly the European Commission and European Parliament, look assured. Orbán opposed a Commission plan to distribute migrants around the bloc while the Parliament has voted to put Hungary on a path toward censure for backsliding on democratic standards.

The election result will also likely embolden far-right parties and populists across Europe inspired by Orbán.

Orbán, who built a fence on Hungary’s southern border during the 2015 migration crisis, constructed his election campaign around strong a strong nationalist and anti-migrant message. The U.N. human rights chief earlier this year branded him a racist.

It really came down to one issue—immigration. Are you listening Donald?

But a senior Fidesz official said the anti-migrant message was key. “It is simply the fear of migrants. Fidesz did a single-issue campaign and it was successful,” said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

More here.

See my previous posts on Hungary, here.  My ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive is here.

Contact the White House! and tell the President to invite the victorious Orban to his home—the White House or Mar a Lago!

Refugee contractor Miliband needs to decide….

Is David Miliband going back to the UK, or is he staying in Manhattan to collect an exorbitant salary to manage the largest (financially) refugee resettlement agency in the US?  When I see news like this, I wonder.

Miliband and Obama 2

Miliband applying the “double-hander” on you know who!

Maybe what he is really doing is waiting to jump back across the pond when something has been firmed-up there for him.

After all, the US resettlement program is experiencing tough times with fewer refugees, staff layoffs, head honchos bailing out, and even the possibility that the gang of nine will lose one whole agency this year.

(See Lutheran CEO—gone, and USCRI CEO—gone. )

And, there appears to be no hope for return of the good-old-days on the horizon based on what we are hearing out of the Trump Administration.

Here is the Financial Times on Miliband:

Labour fury and derision at prospect of new centrist party

David Miliband, the former Labour foreign secretary who some centrists see as a potential leader, dipped a toe back into domestic politics last week when he called for a second Brexit referendum. “The threats to peace around the world are more acute than ever,” Mr Miliband wrote in the New Statesman.

As a pal of Soros, the Clintons, Samantha Power and Obama, I don’t know how anyone would call Miliband a centrist!

And, since we pay him nearly $700,000 a year to run the International Rescue Committee, doesn’t he have enough to do without dipping toes in UK politics?

See my archive on ‘Moneybags’ Miliband here.

In some ways I’ll be sad to see him go because he is fun to write about.  Just 5 days ago I told you he was trash-talking Europe and saying countries there need to take more refugees.

Australian Home Minister: Time to rethink 1951 UN Refugee Convention

Whoa! Now that would shake up the No Borders International Left for sure!

Peter Dutton is talking about the 1951 Refugee Convention that is under the control of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

Trump at UN 2

Yes! Let’s push for an end to the UN Convention. Each country should make its own immigration policy!

He has a point!

Resettlement is not possible for the millions of migrants moving around the world, so why not create a better system to care for them where they are!

In fact, President Donald Trump told the United Nations this very thing on September 19, 2017 (see here).

But, the time is now and that means we should be on the offense and question the very underpinning of a system that is dangerously flawed, erodes national sovereignty, and is costly!

From The Guardian:

The home affairs minister, Peter Dutton, says “like-minded” countries [like the US!—ed] should come together to review the relevance of the 1951 United Nations refugee convention, arguing the document is outdated and does not account for the modern movement of people.

peter-dutton1

Peter Dutton:  Is the 1951 Refugee Convention relevant today?

In a wide-ranging interview with Guardian Australia conducted on Tuesday, Dutton flagged a reluctance to allow the elderly family members of immigrants to come to Australia, and a desire to incentivise new arrivals to move to regional communities. He also reaffirmed the country’s commitment to a nondiscriminatory immigration policy.

Dutton said he agreed with statements made by the British prime minister, Theresa May, and others suggesting the UN convention relating to the status of refugees could be modernised “or at least an update of the way in which the convention works and what it provides for”.

He said countries’ efforts to resettle refugees were “token” given the numbers of displaced people, and argued offering support to refugee camps would be more effective than resettling a small portion of the refugee population.

Contact the White House!

Tell the President to go on the offense and push for dumping the 1951 UN Refugee Convention.

If nothing else, a debate on the issue would be extremely useful and might even force our do-nothing Congress to reevaluate the Refugee Act of 1980—a law that has over time allowed the UN to call the shots on who comes to the US as refugees.

Family reunification (chain migration) is bugaboo for new German government

Invasion of Europe news….

German special forces cropped

Members of German Special Forces in Muenster yesterday. Still no official report on the deadly attack.  https://www.standard.co.uk/news/world/muenster-attack-several-dead-after-car-drives-into-crowd-in-germany-a3808266.html

I bet Japan Times is eager to show the citizens of Japan what a mess one’s country becomes when the migrant tide is invited in!

From Japan Times:

BERLIN – A scuffle over immigration has marred the first weeks in office of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s fourth coalition, promising anything but smooth sailing in the years ahead for the loveless left-right alliance.

Conservatives among Merkel’s Christian Democrats are keen to restrict as heavily as possible so-called family reunifications that would allow some of the million-plus migrants and refugees who have arrived since 2015 to bring in relatives.

That has stirred the ire of Social Democrats (SPD), the reluctant junior partners who helped Merkel into office to end the longest period of post-election limbo in post-World War II German history.

 

A thousand a month!

GERMANY-EUROPE-MIGRANTS

Chancellor Merkel and Interior Minister Seehofer

 

Japan Times continues…..

In their painstakingly negotiated coalition deal, the parties agreed that up to 1,000 people per month could enter Germany under family reunification, with only immediate relatives eligible.

New Interior Minister Horst Seehofer is eager to tighten the screws further, with a draft law that would prevent people dependent on social benefits from bringing in family members and further restrict which relations are eligible, including ruling out siblings.  

Now that is an idea!  The US should be doing that too! If the family already here is on welfare, they can’t bring other family members over.  Gee, I bet that is already a law we don’t follow!

Many people who arrived in Germany as refugees are yet to join the labor market, undergoing job training or language classes, and would therefore not qualify.

Seehofer is a former leader of the ultra-conservative CSU, the smaller Bavarian sister party of Merkel’s more centrist CDU.

[….]

“If the Social Democrats don’t cooperate, the ‘grand coalition’ would be over” less than a month after Merkel was sworn in, deputy leader of the conservative parliamentary group Georg Nuesslein told the Augsburger Allgemeine newspaper.

The family reunification row is just one front in a broader battle over immigration, integration and Islam in German society that has pitted the SPD against the CDU/CSU.

Seehofer is also keen to speed up expulsions of people whose asylum applications are refused, many of whom spend months or years contesting the decisions in the courts or acquire a “tolerated” residence status.

The twin issues of asylum abuse and family reunification are also key elements in the US debate over our southern border.

Can’t lose with the issue of more law and order!

Health Minister Jens Spahn, a rising star of the CDU’s right wing seen as a potential future candidate for the chancellorship, has spent his first weeks in office giving interviews urging more “law and order” in troubled city districts.

Continue reading the story at Japan Times, here.

Japanese readers must be asking:  Why would any sane government act to destroy its own country and culture?

Don’t say I didn’t warn you! The Left is advancing climate refugees as the next big crisis

This is a subject I’ve touched on from time to time—I have 51 previous posts on the topic.

 

climate-refugee-2-728

 

I hope to continue to bring it to your attention because it might seem like a fringe issue to you, but you can be sure the NO Borders political machine is advancing it as one more reason to erase borders worldwide (and redistribute wealth from the first world to the third world).

There has been some controversy however about the use of the word “refugee” since the ‘humanitarians’ don’t want the environmentalists appropriating the word.  Nevertheless, from the bits and pieces I have read, they are moving closer to an agreement.

I’m not proposing you buy this expensive book, but am just putting this out to you as one more ‘heads-up’ on the subject.

Facilitating the Resettlement and Rights of Climate Refugees

 

One of the most significant impacts of climate change is migration. Yet, to date, climate-induced migrants are falling within what has been defined by some as a ‘protection gap’. This book addresses this issue, first by identifying precisely where the gap exists, by reviewing the relevant legal tools that are available for those who are currently, and who will in the future be displaced because of climate change. The authors then address the relevant actors; the identity of those deserving protection (displaced individuals), as well as other bearers of rights (migration-hosting states) and obligations (polluting states).

climate refugee book

The authors also address head-on the contentious topic of definitions, concluding with the provocative assertion that the term ‘climate refugees’ is indeed correct and should be relied upon. 

The second part of the book looks to the future by advocating specific legal and institutional pathways. Notably, the authors support the use of international environmental law as the most adequate and suitable regime for the regulation of climate refugees. With respect to the role of institutions, the authors propose a model of ‘cross-governance’, through which a more inclusive and multi-faceted protection regime could be achieved.

“Cross-governance” sound a bit ominous!

Addressing the regulation of climate refugees through a unique collaboration between a refugee lawyer and an environmental lawyer, this book will be of great interest to scholars and professionals in fields including international law, environmental studies, refugee studies and international relations.

You can bet this will be required reading for your little darlings attending Leftwing colleges and universities (LOL! the high price of the book suggests that is where it is headed!).

This may be the only place on the political right where you can find this much coverage (even as little as I have provided) on the subject.

Kentucky Somali says the UN picked Louisville as his resettlement destination

Hmmmm!

cc Louisville logo

This is from a short article at The Catholic Record in Kentucky.  It’s about how difficult it was for a new employee with Migration and Refugee Services in Louisville to learn the ropes about the resettlement process.

I can relate since I’m still learning the system after writing about it for nearly 11 years, but one bit caught my attention!

Here is what Catholic Charities of Louisville’s “employment team leader” Somali Ahmed Hussein told the new guy on the block:

One of my co-workers who is always willing to share his story and answer questions about his experience as a refugee is our employment team leader, Ahmed Hussein.

Ahmed is a Somali refugee who came to Kentucky after spending eight years in a Kenyan refugee camp. I remember when I first met Ahmed, I asked why they chose Louisville as a destination, and his response was really eye-opening to the entire resettlement process, “Man, we didn’t choose Louisville, they (the United Nations High Commission for Refugees) choose for you, and you take the destination they offer.”

You know what!

Since the US State Department and their resettlement contractors*** NEVER explain to the public how locations are chosen (it is one of the most closely held secrets of the whole process), we’ll go with Mr. Hussein’s explanation until we get some real answers!

And, have a look at this graphic I found. It’s a couple years old, but it does give you some idea of where the UN is placing Somalis!

Australia to limit refugees from South Sudan, Somalia and Iran

The new limit will apply to privately sponsored refugees.

It isn’t the limitation that got me interested, it is their private sponsor program that began in 2013.  Private groups can pay in a big chunk of cash to care for a refugee or a refugee family for a year.  Every one of those privately sponsored means one less refugee the government will sponsor.  Very interesting!

Somalis arrive aussie

By 2013 tens of thousands of illegal aliens seeking asylum had arrived by boat in Australia. People traffickers in Africa were directing them to a wide open border. At that point the clamp down began which saw thousands housed in offshore detention facilities.

Here is the news from The Guardian yesterday, story titled:

South Sudan, Somalia and Iran excluded from one of Australia’s refugee programs

Humanitarian migrants from eight countries will be prioritised under one of Australia’s refugee resettlement programs, with other nationalities told their applications are highly unlikely to be accepted.

The Guardian understands the priority countries are: the Democratic Republic of Congo, Afghanistan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Myanmar, Bhutan, Syria and Iraq. Nationals of several other specific countries that were previously considered for resettlement, such as South Sudan, Somalia and Iran, are now excluded and will not be able to access the program. The move has been condemned by some community leaders as “clear discrimination”.  [Keep reading because the restriction is only for a tiny portion of their refugee flow—-ed]

The resettlement scheme, known as the Community Support Program, is one element of Australia’s broader humanitarian program, which, this year, offers up to 1,000 places, taken from within the broader program of 16,250 places. [1,000 places are up for grabs, but how many are actually sponsored this way when you see the price tag below!—-ed]

[….]

It allows community groups, businesses, families or individuals to sponsor and support a refugee to come to Australia. But each privately sponsored place reduces by one the government’s resettlement commitment.

The program was previously the Community Proposal Pilot, started in 2013.

[….]

The Community Support Program is based loosely on Canada’s private sponsorship program.

Since the late 1970s, more than 280,000 have been resettled in Canada by private sponsors, who commit the equivalent of one year of social security – about $30,000 – in cash or by in-kind commitment of housing, clothing, furniture and food, to assist a refugee family of five to settle into the country. [This in-kind stuff can be a sham as they get a bunch of junky furniture and claim it has a higher value.—ed]

Now get this!  With one-year support expected to cost $100,000 for a family of five, the government is basically telegraphing the cost of just one third-world family. Yikes! And, frankly what is the incentive for a private group to do this?

Australia’s scheme is much more expensive – to sponsor an individual refugee costs about $48,000, a family of five about $100,000 – and, for every humanitarian migrant privately sponsored, the government resettles one fewer under its program.

Of course the Open Borders Lefties in Australia are complaining because they obviously want the Australian tax payer to bear the burden!

This “offset” has led to criticism of the scheme as the government abrogating its commitment to resettle refugees, instead outsourcing resettlement to private individuals or community groups.

More here.

The Cato Institute was pushing such a program at one point, but frankly it was just to add more refugees to your towns and cities (for globalist labor needs), not to reduce the government-sponsored flow.

Trump and Turnbull

Trump and Aussie PM Turnbull discuss dumb deal!

Surprise! 

Asylum seekers held in offshore detention have mental health issues.  

I sure hope none of those the Trump State Department is admitting are among those mentally impaired (like the Youtube shooter).

From UN News:

Australia-bound asylum seekers left mentally scarred by years of detention on Pacific islands, warns UN refugee official

Under a deal agreed between Australia and the United States, some 1,000 detainees from Nauru will be repatriated to the US. Around 180 have already left the island.

Read it all here.

I wonder what is holding up the arrival of more refugees under the Obama/Trump “dumb” refugee swap deal.  See Australia deal archive here.

Youtube shooter was a refugee from Iran

That is what the LA Times is reporting, here.  (Hat tip: Peter)

nasim

Attempted murderer Nasim Najafi Aghdam

Surely you’ve seen the story about an animal rights activist shooting human beings a few days ago, but if you haven’t, check out the LA Times.

I only want to make a couple of points.  First here is a tiny snip of the story:

Aghdam entered the country as a refugee roughly two decades ago, a family member said. In one of her videos, she said she was born in Urmia, Iran — where she and other members of her Baha’i faith face discrimination — and that her family had spent a year and a half in Turkey.

Turkey?

Readers need to know that Turkey has been a major processing center for refugees from the Middle East (imagine what fraud could be happening there!) for many years.

Trump Admin doesn’t process as many through Turkey

I’ve reported on the processing countries on several occasions, but it might be instructive to see that as Obama was leaving office, Turkey was one of our top processing centers, here.  And, then here, a year later, Turkey has been demoted as a processing country. I don’t have the inside skinny on what happened.

The mentally ill are admissible as refugees

The other thing you need to know is that we don’t screen for mental illness in the refugee admissions process—we take many nuts! 

(Based on this reporting and her age now, she was an adult when admitted to the US.)

And, when those nuts do something as violent criminals, you dear taxpayers support them for the rest of their natural lives!  (Not the case this time, she spared you by killing herself!)

What if Ted Kennedy had received justice in 1969?

The movie ‘Chappaquiddick’ opens in theaters this week and it got me thinking, what if…

 

 

What if justice had been served and Kennedy was not in the Senate to spearhead the bill that would become the Refugee Act of 1980.

Senator Ted Kennedy is responsible for most of the problems we have today with immigration, by 1969 he had already done some very real damage to this country.  But he didn’t drive through the bill that became the Refugee Act of 1980 until ten years later, in 1979.

That bill was signed in to law in March 1980 (the 17th, St. Patrick’s Day, exactly) in Jimmy Carter’s final year.  (I don’t recall if by March ol’ Carter knew, or suspected, he was a one-termer or not.)

The Refugee Act of 1980, which only a few weeks ago passed its 38th anniversary, had set up the flawed system we see today where nine major contractors (using taxpayer dollars) monopolize the program, and, up until President Trump came along, pretty much called the shots on how the USRAP was managed.

I attended the 30th anniversary shindig of the signing of the Act at Georgetown Univ. and wrote about it here a few years ago.  I asked this in 2011 after listening to speakers at the Georgetown celebration:

Is there a conspiracy by NGO’s to bring asylum seekers to US borders?

 

caravan making for US border

The Caravan! Kennedy’s legacy! These Central Americans will arrive at the US border where they will ask for asylum under Kennedy’s law.

 

The major take-away of the day for me was the obvious push toward greater use of the asylum portion of the law.

The Open Borders crew knew then that there were limits to how many refugees they could get in through the normal process and were beginning to hang their hats on migrants coming to the border (where an immigration lawyer awaits them) and asking for asylum.

So that “Caravan,” on its way to our southern border at this very moment, is a direct legacy of Ted Kennedy who should have been driven out of the Senate in that fateful year—1969—and sent to prison!

Would there eventually have been a Refugee Act, maybe, but then again maybe not!

US refugee contractor Miliband says EU countries must step up and take more refugees

Before I tell you about ‘Moneybags’ Miliband’s proposal for his home country, the UK, and for the whole of Europe, this article gives me an opportunity to clarify something the No Borders gang doesn’t want you to understand.

If you are saying Europe is already taking in hundreds of thousands of “refugees,” how can they take more?  Know that the over a million migrants, which have descended on Europe in recent years, are not “refugees” until they have had their asylum claims adjudicated and have been determined to be truly persecuted people in need of refugee protection.  The vast majority are illegal aliens/economic migrants! 

The next time someone on the Left (or a politician) says we must do our share because Turkey, Jordan, and Lebanon are doing so much more, remember this: the migrants in those countries are temporary. They will not become voting citizens as our admitted refugees will be!

miliband and soros 2 (2) close

David Miliband and George Soros

The people Miliband is talking about are “refugees” mostly identified and registered with the United Nations and who will become permanent residents when they are admitted. Many live in UN camps in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.   It is (mostly) from that pool that the US has taken its 10,000+ over the last 6 months (see yesterday’s post).

For decades, without a doubt the US has taken the lion’s share of the refugees the UN has identified and wants to distribute to the West.

Doing well by doing good!

David Miliband heads the financially largest of the nine US resettlement contractors*** the International Rescue Committee.  He is a former UK Labor Party Foreign Minister and a pal of—-drum roll—-George Soros.  I call him “Moneybags” because he pulls down an annual salary of $671,749 (largely funded by US taxpayer dollars). See post on the IRC’s Form 990, here.

Here is The Guardian story with this headline:

David Miliband calls for leadership on refugee resettlement in the EU

It could be sub-titled:  Miliband takes a whack at Trump!

David Miliband has called on the European Union to bring half a million refugees to Europe over the next five years, which would mean providing homes for almost 10% of the world’s most vulnerable refugees each year.

Under the targets proposed by the International Rescue Committee (IRC), of which Miliband is chairman, the EU would commit to increasing targets of European resettlement schemes to take in 108,000 refugees every year for five years from refugee camps and communities in countries such as Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon.

[….]

In 2017, 65,000 refugees were resettled worldwide, a third of the number resettled the previous year (189,300). The EU provided resettlement places for 23,000 refugees – or 1.9% of those eligible for resettlement. Under the target being called for by the IRC, the EU would resettle 9% of eligible refugees.

Let’s stop for a minute and look at the numbers. I used the calendar year data at Wrapsnet and see that in 2017, the US resettled just over half (51%) of the refugees resettled by the whole Western world—33,368 (of the 65,000).  Pew Research tells us that in 2016 the US share was also 51%, but get this….from Pew:

In 2016, for example, out of approximately 1 million eligible refugees identified by UNHCR, an estimated 189,000 were resettled worldwide, with more than half (51%) of these ending up in the United States. Between 1982 and 2016, the U.S. admitted more than two-thirds (69%) of the world’s resettled refugees, followed by Canada (14%) and Australia (11%).

So for nearly a quarter of a century the US was, by far, the most ‘welcoming’ country in the world!  Yeh! Miliband is right—other countries need to pick up the slack now.  Time for the US to take a breather!

The Guardian continues….

Miliband said Europe had been “playing catch up” with the refugee crisis as it dealt with large numbers of people [illegal aliens!—ed] arriving and claiming asylum over the past few years, but now had an opportunity to “become a proactive player” on this issue.

“Europe needs to recognise that this refugee crisis around the world is not going away and Europe needs to have a proactive policy which includes the option of refugee resettlement for a portion of the most vulnerable who are identified as qualifying for refugee resettlement,” he said.

Miliband: Europe must lead because Trump isn’t!

Miliband said the need for Europe to provide world leadership had increased after the Trump administration announced last year it would slash the US resettlement target from 110,000 places in 2017 to a maximum of 45,000 places in 2018. The US has traditionally taken the most refugees through resettlement programmes of any country.

Calling Hungarian PM Victor Orban! Pay attention to Soros and Miliband!

However, the calls are likely to face opposition from some member states, which have refused to share the responsibility of refugee hosting across the EU. Last year, the European commission began a legal case against the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland for refusing to participate in a programme that relocated refugees that had arrived in Greece and Italy.

Under the IRC’s proposal, all EU member states would be required to set a target for refugee resettlement, proportionate to GDP and population. Most countries would have to dramatically expand their resettlement programmes to meet this target.

Trump on pace to break Bush record of lowest refugee resettlement numbers since 1980 law enacted

Trump and Bush

Bush (so far) holds the record for low refugee admission years:  Bush admitted 27,070 in 2002 and 28,117 in 2003

We have now reached the six month mark of the first full fiscal year of the Trump presidency and Trump could easily break the Bush record set in 2002 of 27,070 refugee admissions for one year.

(See post here on the Bush record low years.)

At the six month mark, the Trump Administration operating well under a CEILING of 45,000 refugees, is at 10,548 admitted so far.

Assuming that rate continues for the next six months, Trump could be at 21,000 (give or take a few) for the year, handily smashing President Bush’s record.

Since the nine federal contractors*** are paid on a refugee per head basis for placing the refugees in your towns and cities, they surely are taking big hits to their budgets.

Here is a map from Wrapsnet of where those 10,548 have been placed. Wyoming is the only state in the nation that never signed up to ‘welcome’ refugees and for some unexplained reason, Hawaii gets very few even though the government there has said they welcome diversity!

Bhutan (1,925)

Burma (1,769)

Ukraine (1,176)

Eritrea (760)

Muslim numbers drastically reduced to 16% of total.

In recent years the Muslim refugees accounted for sometimes as close to half of all refugee admissions. As of April 1, of the 10,548 admitted, 1,725 are Muslims of one sect or another.  (Data maintained at Wrapsnet)

Significant numbers of Muslims are coming in the Burma and DR Congo flow.

UN: Israel to send its illegal aliens to Western countries (oops! cancel that)

jewish-protesters

This is what Israel has been contending with for years. Some of these migrant activists are already coming to the US!

 

It seems that Israeli Prime Minister nixed his own deal with the UN before the ink was dry on the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (aka HIAS)‘s crowing e-mail to its followers.

I received Mark Hetfield’s e-mail at 3:28 p.m. yesterday, but sometime later yesterday the New York Times reported that the deal was off.

I was planning to post on the Hetfield e-mail anyway this morning, but now the story gets even juicier.  My focus would have been on the outrageous idea that 16,000 Africans who broke in to Israel over the years would be resettled as refugees in WESTERN COUNTRIES. Which countries? The US!  Surely Europe can’t handle one more needy African!

***Update*** Canada in the cross hairs, see here.

(Readers need to know that we (the US) are already bringing rejected asylum seekers from Israel to be placed in Anytown, USA.  71 arrived between Oct. 1, 2017 and February, 28, 2018. Hundreds more have come in recent years probably all resettled by HIAS.)

Below is Mark Hetfield, CEO of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society yesterday. We previously questioned why HIAS, one of nine major federal resettlement contractors, was mucking around in Israel’s business in the first place.

Then here is the New York Times sometime after that e-mail went out.

By the way, after the original flood of illegal aliens entering Israel, the Israelis built a very successful wall.

 

JERUSALEM — In a head-spinning turnaround, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel announced on Monday that he had reached an extraordinary deal with the United Nations refugee agency to resettle thousands of African asylum seekers in Western countries. Within hours Mr. Netanyahu suspended the deal after coming under heavy criticism from his coalition partners.

The flip-flop appeared to reflect Mr. Netanyahu’s fear of losing support from those partners or from his right-wing constituency, who call the asylum seekers infiltrators and want them gone. His opponents on the left described the prime minister’s behavior as an embarrassing and cowardly surrender under pressure.

ISRAEL-AFRICAN-REF_2783947b

African protesters in Tel Aviv in 2014.   https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/israel/10556609/African-refugees-plan-march-on-Jerusalem-amid-anger-at-Israeli-dentention-plans.html

Mr. Netanyahu, who is battling for his political future under the cloud of multiple corruption scandals and faces possible charges of bribery, had apparently failed to consult with most of his own conservative Likud Party colleagues or coalition allies before announcing the migrant deal.

[….]

The agreement with the United Nations was meant to replace a contentious Israeli plan that had offered the migrants a stark choice: forced deportation to Africa or prison. That plan fell through after Rwanda, the African country meant to receive the deportees, announced that it would accept only those who left Israel voluntarily.

In the afternoon, in a televised news conference, Mr. Netanyahu triumphantly announced the new deal, under which the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees committed to persuading countries in the West to take at least 16,250 migrants over five years, while Israel would grant official status as temporary residents to most who remained.

Estimates of the population of African asylum seekers in Israel, mostly from Eritrea and Sudan, range from 35,000 to 39,000.

But the agreement to let many stay in Israel drew harsh criticism from some of Mr. Netanyahu’s right-wing coalition allies, who were taken by surprise. Naftali Bennett, the education minister and leader of the far-right Jewish Home party, said the deal would “turn Israel into an infiltrator’s paradise.”

Mr. Netanyahu backtracked.

[….]

The plan was to be carried out in three phases, with the first 6,000 migrants expected to leave over the next 18 months.

William Spindler, a spokesman for the United Nations refugee agency in Geneva, said there was no agreement in place with other countries to take any of them. He said that the agency would need countries to come forward with offers, but that “we are confident we will be able to find places for these 16,000 people.”

The UN is confident! I’m not!  A major part of the deal requires WESTERN COUNTRIES to take 16,000 —- which countries?

And, why should Israel’s, or Malta’s, or Australia’s illegal aliens be our problem!

Refugees, asylum seekers, migrants are the problem of the country they have escaped to—-they are not the US’s problem—and if the President is serious about reforming the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program, simply disallowing resettlement from first world countries is something he can do at the State Department level!

Kentucky refugee numbers dip, drop, dwindle

We know that, so why am I posting yet one more “plummet” story that the refugee industry has fed the media?

Because in this story we see the beginning of the strategy for Fiscal Year ’19 which I mentioned here the other day.

Right on cue they have begun the PR push for pre-Trump levels of refugee admissions.

From The Messenger:

International Center of Kentucky faces dwindling refugee arrivals

Albert Mbanfu, the center’s executive director, met with community partners Thursday to discuss resettlement issues. Mbanfu said after the meeting that the center is experiencing a slowdown but that the federal government isn’t saying why.

(Learn about Stakeholder meetings, here.)

Mbanfu is presiding over a Stakeholders meeting that includes school and health officials, etc. These meetings are supposed to be open to the public, so all of you should be finding out when they are held and request to be present. After all, as the taxpayers paying for all of this, you are the biggest stakeholder of all!  Photo:  http://www.bgdailynews.com/news/international-center-faces-dwindling-refugee-arrivals/article_9c2588e6-342d-5dd5-a332-fc937311fd7a.html

 

The Messenger continues….

In light of this [discussion about Trump slowdown.—ed], Mbanfu said the center has been asked to rework its budget. He said in a follow-up interview that the center has made cuts and reduced staff.

“A year and a half ago we were at about 30 and right now, full- and part-time staff, we are down to 22, and there are still plans to reduce that further,” he said of the agency’s employees.

[….]

During the meeting, Mbanfu also discussed plans to scale back funding for refugee resettlement agencies across the country.

“Beginning Oct. 1 [Fiscal year ’19 begins that day.—-ed], not all of the refugee resettlement agencies will be open,” he said. “Many will close their doors.”

Mbanfu said the center’s volunteer agency, the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, is working on a proposal to keep its affiliated agencies open. More information should be available in August or September, he said.

This is what I wanted you to see!

Despite the low number of arrivals, Mbanfu told the center’s partners it is going to ask for permission to resettle 440 refugees next fiscal year.

The center was previously granted permission to resettle that amount before Trump took office.

I have to laugh.  I’ll bet some of those officials which have to cope with large numbers of refugees in the schools and health system are keeping their fingers crossed that 440 won’t be coming next year!

The strategy is taking shape!

Apparently, the strategy is for all three hundred or so subcontractors (of the nine major contractors***) to prepare Abstracts for the coming year as if President Trump wasn’t even there.  They know he won’t go for Obama-level numbers, but they plan to use their request for high numbers in the inevitable media agitation campaign.

Those Abstracts go to the US State Department (as a basis for next year’s determination) and if the DOS was smart they would put the word out right now that they won’t entertain any Abstracts that come in at Obama-era levels.  They could even put out a percentage.  For example an Abstract must come in at say 25% of its FY18 submitted level.

If the Trump State Department does not head this off now, they face another refugee industry anti-Trump media blitz come September.

(They will get one anyway, but at least the contractors won’t be able to use their submitted Abstracts in the process.)

BTW, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has never lifted a finger to reform the refugee program. At one point, after those Iraqi refugee terrorists were caught in his home town, Senator Rand Paul took a stand against the program, but quickly shut down his criticism.  I think KY is one of those states that welcomes cheap refugee labor for BIG CHICKEN! and for the Chamber of Commerce. 

Wouldn’t you like to know what ol’Mitch and Rand are telling Trump behind the scenes about refugee resettlement!

 

*** For new readers, these (below) are the nine federal refugee contractors that have been driving more refugee resettlement for over three decades.  The program will never be reformed as long as these fake non-profits are funded with taxpayer dollars and are permitted to wage political organizing/agitation campaigns.

The International Center of Kentucky works for the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, a contractor which has a checkered past (in Kentucky too!).

Go here for my USCRI archive to see what I mean. Don’t miss this one: CEO Limon is out!

The number in parenthesis is the percentage of the nine VOLAGs’ income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees, line them up with (low paying) jobs in food production and cleaning hotel rooms, and get them signed up for their services!  From most recent accounting, here.
