Huffington Post: State Department says it will up refugee arrivals to 900 a WEEK!

We have increased the current pace of refugee arrivals to approximately 900 individuals per week. (State Department spokesperson)   Oh geez! What the heck is the Trump Administration doing? As we have said repeatedly, Trump’s refugee admissions are not at the mercy of two rogue judges. He can bring in any number under the CEILING […]

In nearly 10 years we have admitted 139,695 Iraqi ‘refugees’ with no sign of flow stopping

In nearly 10 years we have admitted 139,695 Iraqi ‘refugees’ with no sign of flow stopping

In my previous post, I reported that three Iraqi ‘refugees’ have been arrested in Virginia for lying on their admission forms to the US. At least one of them made up his ‘persecution’ story! How many more liars are there in this huge flow to America? Because I wanted to see how many Iraqis were […]

Iraqi refugees arrested in Virginia for lying on their refugee admission applications

Iraqi refugees arrested in Virginia for lying on their refugee admission applications

They lied more than once! The first whopper was a lie of omission.  They failed to mention that their brother was a terrorist. And, at least one of them made up his “persecution” story to justify his admission to the US as a refugee. Hasan admitted to making false statements and creating his persecution story. […]

587 refugees admitted since 120-day moratorium should have started, Syrians top list

587 refugees admitted since 120-day moratorium should have started, Syrians top list

It has been 13 days since the Trump Administration said it would begin a 120-day moratorium on admissions through an Executive Order blocked by two rogue judges. Instead of doing what the Trump Department of State is legally permitted to do, without an EO, and pause the program, we have admitted 587 additional refugees since […]

Eastern European countries join forces! Refuse to take refugees Brussels is pushing on them

Eastern European countries join forces! Refuse to take refugees Brussels is pushing on them

Invasion of Europe news…. Europe is in the mess it is in because leaders in Brussels did not have the will to stop the migration from the Middle East and North Africa in its earliest days.  It would have only taken a few boats being turned back to the African coast and to the Turkish […]

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service “cautiously hopeful” refugee ceiling will return to 110,000

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service “cautiously hopeful” refugee ceiling will return to 110,000

I’m actually stunned that they think that the Trump Administration could be forced by a judge (or two judges) to shoot for a refugee “ceiling” number set by Obama for a year he would no longer be President. For the zillionth time, even if Obama was  still in the White House there is no legal […]

‘Religious Left’ on the rise in response to President Trump’s people and policies

‘Religious Left’ on the rise in response to President Trump’s people and policies

Are they organizing in your name? This is a Reuters story highlighting the phrase ‘Religious Left’ something we have been talking about on these pages for years.  Entitled of course to their political views, what has grated on me for so long is the FACT that many of the organizations working on the ‘Religious Left’ […]

Aberdeen, SD: Somali refugee sentenced to 3 years for attempted sexual assault of a mentally challenged woman

Aberdeen, SD: Somali refugee sentenced to 3 years for attempted sexual assault of a mentally challenged woman

When we first reported this case, it was learned through an apparent miscommunication by lawyers for the defendant that he had only arrived in the country the week before the incident occurred in July of last year. Now we learn he was a wandering Somali who had first been resettled in Idaho three years ago […]

Australia plans to take mostly Syrian Christians for resettlement…

Australia plans to take mostly Syrian Christians for resettlement…

Okay, that sounds reasonable and sensible except for one thing! Australia is pawning off over 1,000 mostly Muslim asylum seekers presently housed in offshore detention centers on to the US.  What are we nuts! Here is the news (at Christian Daily) about Australia’s magnanimous gesture toward Christian Syrians: Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turbull’s government has […]

No statutory authority underpinning refugee program in so-called Wilson-Fish states

No statutory authority underpinning refugee program in so-called Wilson-Fish states

The Refugee Act of 1980 does permit a state to withdraw from the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program, but here is the catch: Back in 1984 Congress passed an amendment to the act that was then completely abused by the bureaucrats in the federal government who did not want to stop sending refugees to those states.  […]

Idaho: Pretrial hearing tomorrow in refugee sexual assault case

Idaho: Pretrial hearing tomorrow in refugee sexual assault case

The powers that be (supporters of the refugee industry) in Twin Falls, Idaho and indeed throughout the state of Idaho are not looking forward to the trial advancing against three refugee boys charged with assaulting a little special needs girl in June of last year. If you are a new reader, we posted many times […]

Dems put Nebraska voter registration forms in refugee welcome baskets

Dems put Nebraska voter registration forms in refugee welcome baskets

Remember dear readers that refugee resettlement in America is not first and foremost about humanitarianism. It is for the Democrat Party a place to recruit Left leaning voters (see my previous post on NC!) while for many on the political Right (and the Chamber of Commerce) a source of captive cheap labor. Thanks to all […]

World Relief building a “new community” in Durham, NC, was there anything wrong with the old one?

World Relief building a “new community” in Durham, NC, was there anything wrong with the old one?

Changing America by changing the people! This story at WRAL.com is meant to be one of those warm and fuzzy stories about ‘welcoming’ refugees (and diversity) to a southern city and how mean old Donald Trump has slowed their progress in changing Durham. The last line of the story by reporter Tess Allen is the […]

Maryland judge to hold hearing on Tuesday regarding FY2017 refugee ceiling issue

Maryland judge to hold hearing on Tuesday regarding FY2017 refugee ceiling issue

For background, see my post here about the annual refugee admissions ceiling and my contention that the President had (still has!) the authority under the Refugee Act of 1980 to stay under the ceiling set by Obama (110,000) or the new ceiling he has set (50,000).  There is nothing in the Act which compels him […]

Comment worth noting: It might be too late for some American communities

Comment worth noting: It might be too late for some American communities

Editor:  This is a comment from reader ‘Seneca the Elder’ posted 4 days ago in response to this post.  I apologize for the late posting, I’ve been distracted by a family health issue (trying to squeeze in reading and posting between playing nurse). From ‘Seneca the Elder’ “…it is kind of too late” There have […]

Not everyone in the Jewish community thinks it is wise to import Middle Eastern Muslims to US

Not everyone in the Jewish community thinks it is wise to import Middle Eastern Muslims to US

You know there has to be anxiety in the Jewish community about whether Jews should, without reservation, promote the resettlement of Muslims from Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan in the ME or Somali Muslims from Africa. Here at the The Jewish Chronicle we see at least the beginning of some honesty about the friction. Longtime readers know […]

Here we go again, refugee numbers jump, 342 since Wednesday

Here we go again, refugee numbers jump, 342 since Wednesday

As we have said repeatedly, and most recently here, the Hawaiian judge did not have the power to slow the flow of refugees entering the US, nor did he have any power to set the ceiling.   That said, a week after the 120-day slowdown was  to go in to effect, the numbers entering the US […]

Supt. Montgomery County Schools says it is federal govt. that screens unaccompanied minors

Thanks to Joanne for spotting the answer to our question from earlier this morning. The Conservative Tree House reported the following when describing the press conference yesterday about the  alleged Rockville rapists from Central America: Mr. Smith does acknowledge during the latter part of the presser that these predator suspects were indeed part of the […]

Legal experts question impartiality of Obama Maryland judge ruling against Trump EO

Legal experts question impartiality of Obama Maryland judge ruling against Trump EO

Looks like Maryland has become the California of the East Coast (see our earlier news about Montgomery County coddling illegal aliens) and now see Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart with an analysis of why the Maryland judge who ruled against Trump’s refugee EO should have disqualified himself. Theodore Chuang, the Federal District Judge for the […]

Are alleged Rockville rapists Unaccompanied Alien Children?

Are alleged Rockville rapists Unaccompanied Alien Children?

That is the question I have about the story you can’t possibly have missed over the last day or two. Were the pair (one from Guatemala and the other from El Salvador), who are behind bars in Maryland for dragging a 14-year-old girl into a boys bathroom and raping her considered ‘refugees’ by the Obama […]
