Comment worth noting is an example of what you can do for your state and country

From time to time, I post what I call “comments worth noting” that have been sent to me or in this case published on social media.

This (below) is a facebook entry from Peggy Traeger Tierney in Minnesota.

Readers ask me all the time, what can I do?  Well, this is a prime example.

Help educate your fellow citizens with a little investigative work of your own and then find a way to get it out more broadly—through facebook as Peggy has done, through twitter, via a letter to the editor, or consider writing your own blog (goodness knows we need more citizen journalists!).

In Minnesota we were told by the bright minds in the legislature that they couldn’t figure out what the refugee population there is costing the taxpayers, well here is one piece of the answer.

More recently the outrageous revelation that massive fraud had been uncovered with Somali-run publicly-supported daycare centers has Minnesotans again demanding an accounting.

You too can do this!

By the way, one of my top posts of all time is this one (2011) about how so many Somalis first arrived in Minnesota thanks to Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services of MN, and then World Relief.  One of the reasons those federal refugee contractors chose Minnesota—generous welfare!

Global corporations want refugee workers, then cut the BS about humanitarianism

Let’s have the debate, but cut the crap about the US Refugee Admissions Program being about saving the poor and destitute of the world, and stop denigrating any of us who don’t agree with the premise that refugee workers are vital to giant corporations.

Miliband in Manhattan

Charity my foot! Moneybags Miliband pulls down a salary of over $600,000 annually so if the IRC wanted to keep its office open in Tyson Foods-run Garden City, Kansas they could! Another boo-hoo story on a Trump-shuttered resettlement office.  https://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2018/0522/With-fewer-incoming-refugees-US-resettlement-centers-dwindle

If you have followed RRW for the last ten years you know that basic principles have emerged about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program:

~A driving force behind more refugees coming to your towns and cities is the desire by BIG MEAT, the hospitality industry, and other manufacturing companies to hire trapped refugee laborers (trapped because they have no where else to go!).

~It is maddening that the UN and the US State Department are busy (on our dime!) to supply those laborers to big business.

~You have learned that the so-called Voluntary Agencies (VOLAGs), some calling themselves “religious” charities,*** are paid by the US taxpayer to take care of the incoming work force for a few months.

~The refugee labor force (salaries are low!) is eligible for a cornucopia of public services (aka welfare) to supplement the meager wages for families that sometimes include six children.  What a business model: cheap wages & welfare supplementation!

~You have surely seen the refugee industry (corporations and federal contractors) attempt to paint their mission as one of love for humanity and anyone who questions that love is mean-spirited.

~You have also learned that if you show concern for the cultural disruption of your town or city, or want to know what it all is costing you, you are a bigot. Just two days ago I posted about how Tyson Foods is transforming Garden City, Kansas.

~And, not to be forgotten, in addition to global corporations pushing for more refugee laborers, are the Dems looking for reliable voters who want the welfare gravy train to continue (Cloward & Piven).

~Finally, you have seen that Congress is not doing a thing to reform the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program, why?

Republicans: Money! Money! Money! Dems: Voters! Voters! Voters!

Why am I summarizing this today?

 

Because I am seeing a spate of stories about how, as the Trump admission numbers decline, big business is now out of the closet promoting the desirability of a refugee labor workforce for themselves, and I repeat:

If we want to have that discussion then let’s have it, but cut the crap about humanitarianism and more importantly stop the usual Leftist tactic of attacking those of us who do not share the globalists’ world view.

First up today is this news from Neil Munro at Breitbart about how Jeff Bezos (Amazon and the Washington Post) (hat tip: Richard). The story is from March, but I am just seeing it now:

Jeff Bezos’ WashPost Endorses Meatpackers’ Cheap-Labor Immigration Strategy

That story discusses JBS Swifts desire for cheap refugee labor. Longtime readers may remember that JBS (a Brazilian owned company) contracted with Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service to help them acquire and retain refugee workers.

Then I see that Forbes is pushing this news:

Study: Refugees Stay In Manufacturing Jobs Longer Than Other Employees

 

Ulukaya and Soros

Ulukaya (Mr. Chobani Yogurt) with George Soros: It is a twofer—cheap labor for them while they work to create a borderless world!

 

That story features our ol’ pal Hamdi Ulukaya (Mr. Chobani Yogurt) who has been busy transforming Twin Falls, Idaho and promoting his Tent Foundation—a cabal of well known global businesses promoting the movement of cheap labor around the world.

Indeed we learned that Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service was contracted to write their refugee hiring guide!

See the Tent Foundation’s partners that include both facebook and twitter.

Expect to see more stories going forward as giant global corporations wail for more refugee laborers.

 

*** These are the nine federal contractors that have monopolized refugee resettlement in the US, some for decades!  They are the handmaidens of global corporations like Chobani Yogurt, JBS Swift, Tyson Foods, Marriot Hotels, etc….

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.

If you are wondering, I post this list every chance I get because we have new readers daily and because I want all of you to know that for reform to be possible these nine fake non-profits have to go.

White South African farmers apply for refugee protection in Australia; no special treatment for them

First I saw this news from RT at Drudge:

White South African farmers claiming persecution at home seek refuge in Australia

So I checked it out and see that the government of Australia has said they will get no special treatment, and indeed the Australian Leftists say that the government must first take care of the mostly Muslim migrants being held in detention on Nauru and Manus islands.

As you know the US is taking some of those detainees in the “dumb” Australia Deal.

Story here:

White South African farmers won’t get special treatment, despite Peter Dutton’s earlier claims

Screenshot (273)

It is pretty undeniable!

But, because I have been predicting for years that once the United Nations is forced to admit that blacks can be racists and that whites are applying for refugee status because they are being persecuted by people of color they will fight to the death to deny it!

I once asked readers to imagine the day when the UN High Commissioner for Refugees must process white Swedes (or South Africans) in to the US. That alone might kill the entire refugee industry, I surmised. 

Heck, Trump could run a test! 

He could put white South Africans at the head of the line.

He could, you know!

In September his administration will send its “determination” to Congress which not only sets the numbers for resettlement for FY19, but sets priorities for which nationalities may be brought in.

In fact, he could classify white South Africans in the P-2 category which would allow anyone in that group to be eligible and each individual would not have to prove that he/she is personally being persecuted.  That would make the heathen rage (a phrase borrowed from a good friend)!

 

Back to Australia….

So here is the story from last month that confirms that the UNHCR will fight to never have to admit that blacks persecute whites as they push for Australia to take in the illegal aliens (mostly Muslims) who tried to get to Australia by boat.

The white South Africans (trying to get in legally) are of less humanitarian value to the UN than those illegal aliens from Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan etc.

Refugees on Nauru and Manus need help before South African white farmers, UNHCR says

The United Nations has urged Australia to resettle the refugees who have been languishing on Manus Island and Nauru for the past five years, rather than focusing on the plight of persecuted white South African farmers. [They are NOT refugees, they are illegal aliens and rejected asylum seekers!—ed]

As pressure mounts within the Coalition to help resettle the farmers, the UNHCR has cast doubt on whether South African farmers can be classified as refugees and granted protection under Australia’s humanitarian program.

Go here to see all the excuses.

It continually amazes me how the UN and its groupies try to invoke the resettlement rules when it comes to a group they do not wish to resettle because that group does not fit the meme they have been promoting for over 50 years and that is that whites persecute blacks and it is never the other way around!

For more on South Africa see my archive on the Rainbow Nation (Ha! Ha!).

Want to have some fun! Contact the White House and tell the Prez to make a special case for white South Africans when he sends his fiscal year 2019 refugee admissions determination to The Hill.

State Department considering not renewing contracts with all nine resettlement agencies

That headline is the important takeaway from this story at NorthJersey.com.

Although largely built around the demise of a recently established resettlement site—Newark! Newark! Yes, Catholic Charities was gearing up to place impoverished third worlders in Newark—the long article is pretty informative.

Newark catholic charities

My first thought: So they have run out of poor Americans in Newark.

It begins with a whinefest about all the used clothes and furnishings the new office had collected for the needy people they planned to welcome to the city.

I’m sure you will have the same reaction as I did—what! No poor people in Newark who could use these items!

Why are foreign poor people so much more deserving (and attractive) than our own poor and homeless?

 

Here are a few snips from the story:

Pillows and bedding were stacked against a wall, while pots, pans, dishware and cleaning supplies spilled from boxes in rows of overloaded bookcases. In two other rooms, piles of folded clothing, shoes and toys shared space with hand-me-down sofas and dressers.

Sandra Fils glanced around the basement of the office building in Cranford and wondered if the donated items would ever find a home. Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Newark had collected them as it prepared to welcome dozens of refugees — a wave that has failed to materialize.

“Right now, we don’t have refugees,” said Fils, division director of workforce Development at Catholic Charities. “We are basically not doing the work that we are dedicated and committed to do.”

[….]

So far this year, fewer than 7,000 refugees have been let into the United States, of whom just 48 settled in New Jersey, according to the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration. With less funding and fewer clients, refugee agencies are now scaling back their operations and relying more heavily on community support to keep their offices afloat. Some are shutting down local offices.

This month, less than two years after the Newark Catholic Charities office started its refugee resettlement effort, employees learned that the program would be shutting down.

What a difference a couple of years (and an election) make!

Back in the closing years of the Obama Administration, the US State Department was creating new resettlement sites at a rapid pace—over 40 were in various stages of the planning process—and we were scrambling to try to figure out where they were because secrecy has always been the watchword of the program.

The article goes on to report the dramatic drop in numbers of refugees arriving, then this….

The big news!

Leaders of the refugee agencies worry about even more severe cuts in the fall, when the new fiscal year begins. The State Department has said that it will not renew contracts with some of the nine agencies*** that resettle refugees in the United States, a blow for faith and charity-based groups that have been serving refugees for decades. Officials have not indicated which agencies will lose contracts.

In this next paragraph we see that reporter Hannan Adely has done her homework.

Rarely do you see information on taxpayer-provided payments to the mostly ‘religious’ charities that contract with the government. In fact, seeing this information provided to the public is one of the big changes I’ve noticed since I began writing RRW in 2007.

Resettlement agencies receive $2,125 for initial costs like rent, security deposits and furnishings for each person they assist. Other support programs are funded with state and private grants and donations.  [Private grants are very small compared to federal grants.—ed]

As the resettlement contractor placing the largest share of refugees in to your towns and cities, the Catholic Bishops/Catholic Charities are surely now taking the greatest hit to their budget.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ migration and refugee services department resettles around 30 percent of all refugees who arrive in the country each year. It has already closed nine resettlement sites and 11 more are at risk in the coming year, said a spokesman, Mike Priceman.

There is much more here.

Tyson Foods bringing “ethnic empowerment network” to a town near you

This story from Garden City, Kansas makes me wonder—-who is deciding the future for your meatpacking town, the citizens, or Tyson Foods?

tyson-foods-garden-city

Tyson Foods in Garden City, Kansas

I have a pretty large archive on Garden City which is one more heartland city that has been changed by the arrival of US State Department-planted third world refugee workers over the last decade or so.

The story leads me to believe that everything is not peace and love when diversity comes to town….

….and that Tyson Foods has a huge stake in keeping the immigrant worker supply train on the tracks!

From the Garden City Telegram:

Representatives from 10 of Garden City’s immigrant communities and six of its organizations and public entities met at St. Catherine Hospital Saturday for the first meeting of the Southwest Kansas Ethnic Empowerment Network.

The network is a reinvigoration of Tyson Fresh Foods Chaplain Jonathon Galia’s Coalition of Ethnic Minority Leaders of Southwest Kansas, which intended to bring together the leaders of Garden City’s immigrant and minority groups and connect them to resources that would help them succeed in the region. [Connect them to resources is code for getting them signed up for their welfare and other social service goodies.—ed]

Screenshot (465)

Galia said the name of the original group, which he founded almost 10 years ago, unintentionally left out city and organization representatives. He said he hopes the new network brings together people from all areas of Garden City in a way that introduces, connects and aids minority groups in adapting to the community.

“There is a constant need for all of us as we continue to aspire for a homogenous community where we constantly experience a blend of culture, a blend of languages.

We see a need for an improved communication among the different peoples,” Galia said.

On Saturday, more than 20 people from a dozen different backgrounds sat in a square in one of St. Catherine’s classrooms, with laminated placards announcing the communities they represented. There were leaders of immigrants from Myanmar, El Salvador, the Ethiopian ethnic group Oromo, the Philippines, Somalia, Kenya, Vietnam, Sudan, Haiti and Eritrea. [By the way, Oromos and Somalis don’t always get along—ed]

[….]

Among them sat the network’s 2018 advisory board: Galia, Garden City Police Chief Michael Utz, City of Garden City Human Resources Director Allie Medina, St. Catherine Hospital Vice President Kayte Fulton, Catholic Agency for Migration and Refugee Services Director LeVita Rohlman, Tyson Human Resources Manager Barb Larsen and LiveWell Finney County Health Coalition Special Projects Consultant Troy Unruh, who came on behalf of Callie Dyer, the coalition’s executive director.

[….]

Minority group representatives introduced themselves and spoke briefly about the size and experience of their respective communities.

Do you have a meatpacking plant near you? If so, it is, and will be, the key factor in determining the future of your town.

Someone should write a book about how BIG MEAT is changing America by changing the people.

Greensboro, NC fire that killed 5 children exposes more concerns with US refugee program

There is a “breakdown at many levels” said Church World Service employee Adamou Mohamed.

Did you hear the news about the five children from the DR Congo who died in an apartment fire in Greensboro, North Carolina just over a week ago?

Probably not because stories showing the unhappy side of refugee resettlement are rarely seen outside the immediate locale.

 

Greensboro apartment fire

Photo: http://www.greensboro.com/news/local_news/questions-follow-deaths-of-children-in-greensboro/article_cf6be3e2-c459-55f2-9778-1273782ad157.html

 

In a tense community meeting last week, the blame for the children’s deaths was placed on the city and on the landlord, all assuming the fire was from landlord and city inspector neglect.

Here are a few snips from the story on that meeting from the local News & Record:

At tense meeting about deadly Greensboro apartment fire, city says it will inspect complex

GREENSBORO — As Greensboro officials, refugee advocates and immigrants gathered days after the deaths of five children in an apartment fire, many people voiced concerns that the city’s deadliest fire in nearly two decades could have been prevented.

“We shouldn’t have had to come to this point,” said community activist Sandra Isley, as others wiped away tears and some trembled in anger during a meeting of the Greensboro International Advisory Committee, which works with the city’s Human Relations Department.

City officials did announce during the meeting that housing inspectors would go door-to-door early next week at the 3100 Summit Ave. complex to conduct inspections on every unit. Beth Benton, the city’s Code Compliance manager, said that action was possible after five residents — the minimum necessary to take action — had signed a petition.

Fire investigators have yet to determine a cause of the Saturday morning fire, but say it started in the kitchen and they are analyzing the unit’s stove. The apartment had no working smoke or carbon monoxide detectors.

The city’s action comes amid claims that the children’s father reported several small fires near the apartment’s stove to management in the days before the tragedy. It is unclear who the father might have notified about the problems with the stove, but the building’s owners said they had no repair request on file.

“There’s a breakdown at many levels for this to happen,” said Adamou Mohamed***, a grassroots organizer for Church World Service, an immigration and refugee program.

Others around him questioned why it has taken so long for the city to get involved.

Resettlement agencies place refugees in cheap apartments and help to build ethnic enclaves….

The North Carolina African Services Coalition placed the family there 18 months ago, when they arrived from the Democratic Republic of Congo as part of a resettlement program. But the agency has since stopped setting up homes there because of complaints about living conditions. Officials with the resettlement agencies say the complex remained attractive to refugees because of the low rent and because it allowed them to live with others who speak their language or understand their customs. Several units there are rented by members of this same family.

Officials have yet to identify the family other than to say the children who died were three boys and two girls between the ages of 18 months and 9 years old. The husband, who works at a local factory, was home with the children but could not get them out.

And here we have the final informative bit of news—Mom was working the night shift for BIG CHICKEN!

If you are new to RRW, you may not know that refugee contractors, including Church World Service, act as headhunters for the meat industry in places like North Carolina.

The wife was working the overnight shift at a chicken plant several counties away. She commutes there with a group of others who share the cost of the drive.

UPDATE!

No stove malfunction. Parents admitted food was left cooking on the stove, story here:

***You really need to see the bio for Church World Service’s community organizer who was clearly leading the charge and attempting to stoke anger with claims of government neglect before all the facts were in.

Why does a taxpayer-funded resettlement agency need a political community organizer (aka community trouble-maker) in the first place?

Adamou Mohamed’s bio at Welcoming America is informative….
