Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society: Tell Congress we need more $$$ for refugees

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society: Tell Congress we need more $$$ for refugees

As I said yesterday, although Trump’s proposed FY18 Budget contains (we are told) enough money for as many as 50,000 refugees for FY18, the refugee resettlement contractors are pushing Congress for more. The President has the power to set the refugee admissions ceiling for the upcoming year (in “consultation” with Congress), and that is normally […]

US State Department continues its pattern of secrecy regarding refugee resettlement

US State Department continues its pattern of secrecy regarding refugee resettlement

The leading non-profit watchdog on government transparency, Judicial Watch, has been digging in to records relating to the resettlement of tens of thousands of refugees and other migrants and the money we spend on them. Yesterday, JW reported that while the Dept of Health and Human Services was forthcoming about the cost of care for […]

Refugee industry wants Trump to admit 75,000 refugees this fiscal year, and another 75,000 in FY18

Refugee industry wants Trump to admit 75,000 refugees this fiscal year, and another 75,000 in FY18

The President’s budget for next year is out, but I have to be completely honest with you, going through these numbers is not my thing! And, consider that it is Congress that will in reality set the agenda and budget for refugee admissions by how much money they are sending to the program and ultimately […]

1,600 of Australia’s rejected migrants want to come to America in Obama “dumb” deal

1,600 of Australia’s rejected migrants want to come to America in Obama “dumb” deal

  This is the “dumb” deal that the Trump Administration has agreed to honor! (See previous posts here) Supposedly we are taking up to 1,250 rejected asylum seekers (mostly from Muslim countries) that Australia is housing in detention centers at two off-shore locations after they tried to enter Australia illegally. Australia plans to close some […]

Human Rights First and five refugee contractors/others oppose tightening US security

Human Rights First and five refugee contractors/others oppose tightening US security

I know all of you are distracted this morning by the horrific news out of the United Kingdom in the wake of the latest terrorist attack on innocent people.  I’m distracted too and don’t have the focus to analyze a House bill which was the subject of a hearing last week in the House Judiciary […]

Memory lane: Yes, Virginia, US refugees commit crimes

Memory lane: Yes, Virginia, US refugees commit crimes

“They went through terror themselves, so I couldn’t imagine them inflicting that on anyone else.” (Barbara Smith, former Catholic Refugee Agency employee, told the court)   Again and again, I hear from citizen activists who tell me that their local refugee advocates/contractors or interfaith groups are spreading the tall tale that refugees admitted to the […]

VOA: Deportations of Africans up in 2016; very cool data base

VOA: Deportations of Africans up in 2016; very cool data base

You’ve been hearing the news here and at other news outlets about the stepped-up deportations of Somalis back to their homeland. Many failed asylum seekers are in the mix. Asylum, for new readers, is, in a way, the other side of the same refugee coin.  Either ‘refugees’ are chosen abroad (usually by the UN these […]

Garden City, Kansas to become new poster-city for the joys of BIG MEAT-generated multiculturalism

Garden City, Kansas to become new poster-city for the joys of BIG MEAT-generated multiculturalism

If you’ve been reading RRW for a bunch of years, you probably heard about the propaganda film featuring Shelbyville, TN that a left-wing-funded media outfit did back in 2007. The film was a whitewashed look at the turmoil created in the town when Tyson Foods ‘welcomed’ refugee (mostly Somali labor) to Shelbyville. In the Shelbyville […]

Repost: Comey tells Senate that FBI looking at 2,000 cases of US links to foreign terrorists, 300 are REFUGEES

Repost: Comey tells Senate that FBI looking at 2,000 cases of US links to foreign terrorists, 300 are REFUGEES

Washington is all a tither this morning about how now former FBI Director James Comey might make a reappearance on The Hill next week. So, lest you forget, the man of the hour, the day, the week, hell, the century! James Comey said this on his last visit to the Senate.   Any chance that Senators […]

Eritreans top list of Muslim ‘refugees’ entering the US this past week

Eritreans top list of Muslim ‘refugees’ entering the US this past week

But, are they really persecuted refugees or are they economic migrants from yet another African country whose government is a mess? And thus the fundamental question for us, as always, is: So why are they our problem? I did my usual end-of-the-week look at Wrapsnet just now. If you are following my updates in the […]

Ohio resettlement agency employee talks about his “clients”

Ohio resettlement agency employee talks about his “clients”

His “clients” are refugees admitted to the US in recent months. Yes! for resettlement agencies paid by your tax dollars, the ‘refugees’ they resettle are “clients.”  I think that is a better word than ‘refugee’ since most aren’t legitimate refugees in the first place. US Together is a subcontracting resettlement agency of the Hebrew Immigrant […]

Poland standing firm: Will not take refugee “quota” they were previously assigned

Poland standing firm: Will not take refugee “quota” they were previously assigned

European nations on the edges of Europe have taken the full brunt of the migrant flood to Europe. The fault lies in the fact that the EU leadership never had the guts to turn the boats back to Turkey or the North African coast when the invasion began in earnest several years ago.  Additionally the […]

Hijrah documentary, get it!

Hijrah documentary, get it!

You may recognize the name Paul Nehlen because he attempted to save Congress (and us!)  from Speaker Paul Ryan by running against him in Wisconsin in 2016. He is now attempting to alert America to the concept of Hijrah, the Islamic doctrine of jihad by immigration. Please consider purchasing his documentary film (here) to encourage […]

Temporary Ebola ‘refugees’ to be sent back to Africa (maybe)

Temporary Ebola ‘refugees’ to be sent back to Africa (maybe)

I recently reported on our ‘Temporary Protected Status‘ program which allows migrants who got in to the US through some other means to legally stay if some big catastrophe happens in their home country while they are here (sometimes illegally!).  As I write, demonstrations are being held around the US in an effort to keep […]

Ireland not (yet) taking its required quota of refugees under demands from EU

Ireland not (yet) taking its required quota of refugees under demands from EU

But, yuk, they promised to take 200 migrants from the “French migrant camp in Calais.”  21 have arrived already! Don’t you love it the way the media makes it sound like the camp at Calais was just one more sanctioned migrant camp.  It was not! It was a location in France across the English Channel […]

Repost: Ten US cases of refugee Islamic terror arrests/convictions

Editor:  A reader asked me over the weekend for the statistics on refugees committing crimes. I told him that as far as I know there is no place where crime statistics compiled those cases by immigration status. For new readers, because there is no actual data that I know of (unless buried in the bowels […]

Jihad expert Robert Spencer poisoned by Leftist in Iceland

Editor’s note:  Before I get to Spencer’s harrowing story, for those who have asked, just a note that if I am absent from the computer these days as I was on most of Mother’s Day and yesterday there could be several reasons.  On Mother’s Day I enjoyed myself! Then yesterday, I had internet connection issues.  […]

RRW Weekly round-up for week ending May 12, 2017

As you may have noticed, I am trying to add some other legal immigration news and information on programs that must be reformed as we have the best window ever for reform in Washington. In fact, the Trump team should be at this very minute crafting legislation to send to The Hill to abolish or […]

DHS data: Somalis slow to become naturalized citizens

Before you see the information I found at the Dept. of Homeland Security website, don’t miss John Binder at Breitbart Texas about the new bunch of Somalis deported to their home country, here, this month, a story featured on Drudge last night.     I took a few minutes this morning to look at data […]

Six Republican Senators question Trump refugee admissions, appear to want MORE refugees admitted to the US

Six Republican Senators question Trump refugee admissions, appear to want MORE refugees admitted to the US

By sending a bipartisan letter like this (below) with the likes of Elizabeth Warren and Dick Durban (leader of the Senate Jihad Caucus!) as co-signers, Oklahoma Senator James Lankford signals that he wants more refugees for his state and at the same time shows complete ignorance about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program—how it works and […]
