Just a few items this Saturday

You may have noticed that I generally don’t write on Saturdays, but have a couple of comments I need to respond to….

Donations?

rrw-logo-1

First, I have had requests again about donations for my work (I assume from new readers who haven’t seen my previous discussions about the issue).

I did for awhile have a paypal button here at RRW, but took it down when paypal began to be selective about who could and who could not use paypal based on the website’s political views.  I think they have since reversed themselves on that wrong-headed business practice, but I never put the button back.

In a week, RRW will be eleven years old and my work has been my charitable gift to the country!

That said, occasionally people have sent me checks with small gifts to my Post Office box (address in lefthand side bar) and I am very appreciative of that thoughtfulness because I know it is a show of support and thanks for my work.

Honduran mother is poster child for asylum fraudsters at southern border

Every one of you who tweets or has a facebook page, a website, or an e-mail list must get this news out to everyone before that shameful Time Magazine cover becomes the definition of Trump’s policy at the border.

This really steams me!

Trump Time crying baby

Ultimate FAKE News!

First, the little crying girl was NOT separated from her mother.

The mother paid a smuggler $6,000 to get her to Texas. Where did she get that kind of money?

Updates: Italy refuses another migrant ship; Germany’s Merkel less popular, but holding on

The migrants “will only see Italy on a postcard.”

(Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini)

While many of us are fixated on our own migrant invasion at the border, Europe is in a tizzy as Italy refuses a docking request from a second migrant ferry (aka rescue boat) from Libya.

From AP at ABC News:

Italy’s hard-line interior minister on Thursday refused port to a Dutch-flagged rescue boat with 224 migrants on board, a week after turning away another foreign ship, the Aquarius, carrying 630 migrants.

Salvini told the Dutch-flagged ship to take its cargo to the Netherlands!    https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/21/europe/italy-interior-minister-salvini-lifeline-rescue-ship-intl/index.html

Minnesota growth in diversity outpacing US as a whole

Not a huge shock for most followers of Refugee Resettlement Watch, but good to see that the citizens of Minnesota are being given the hard facts so that they can decide what will be best for their families going forward.

US has greatest number of asylum claims of any country in world, far surpassing Germany!

I’ve been warning that the US must not become Germany, but this morning I see that we are there already! 

Merkel and Trump

Dear Donald: Follow Angela Merkel’s lead on asylum seekers at your great peril!

Before I give you the latest news about the numbers, you need to know that asylum is just another side of the refugee coin.

The only difference is that, in the case of refugees we admit through the US Refugee Admissions Program, we screen them (supposedly), pick them up abroad, and fly them to the US.

Judicial Watch sues Department of State for failure to respond to FOIA request on Obama secret selection of new resettlement sites

Long time readers will remember that for a couple of years we were on a hunt to reveal the forty plus new resettlement sites the US State Department was quietly targeting for placement of the huge flow of refugees they expected in the waning years of the Obama Administration (and planning ahead for the Hillary years to come!).

New site development guide

Obama State Department’s guide for community organizers to teach them how to set up new resettlement sites in their unsuspecting communities. I only discovered it by chance.   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/12/03/arrogant-church-world-service-closes-doors-in-poughkeepsie/

We were able to identify some sites in various stages of planning just because local newspapers reported that their town was being chosen (or might be chosen), but there was never any official release of information from the DOS.

Thus, Judicial Watch went to work to try to uncover the list and the criteria being used to select new sites.

Pew poll on European attitudes on immigration interesting, but flawed

Pew Research is trying to figure out attitudes in Europe about immigration I suspect to gauge the political mood of the electorate.

World Refugee Day cancelled in Lewiston, Maine

Tomorrow, June 20th, is World Refugee Day created by the United Nations in the year 2000.

Each year since, it has served as a media hook for reports and glowing stories about refugee contributions to America. (The Left is so good at creating propaganda opportunities!)

But, for Lewiston, Maine this week, the word ‘refugee’ is not a happy word.

SPLC apologizes and shells out $3.375 million to man they placed on their Anti-Muslim extremists list

SPLCThat would be the 2016 “Field Guide” written by Mark Potok that they created to try to silence voices they disapprove of (yours truly is on it!).

This time their shoddy research cost them big bucks and a black eye.

How many Somali refugees has the US admitted since 1983?

Last week someone asked me to have a look at the numbers of Somalis admitted to the US since 9/11.

Minnesota is the most ‘welcoming’ state!

 

It so happens that the US State Department site, Refugee Processing Center (Wrapsnet) has the data very nicely organized since 2002, so the request was pretty easy to accomplish.

Pope and World Council of Churches to hold conference on xenophobia, migration, and populism

This should be fun to watch!

WCC logo

The Marxists at the World Council of Churches and Pope Francis think they are going to bring the world together in harmony and love with a conference in September on defeating xenophobia and the menace of political populism (just as a major power shift fueled by populism is sweeping Italy).

 

Maybe they would get a lot farther in bringing peace to the world if they cut out the insulting language….just saying!

Important free speech case involving Twitter moves forward

I first told you about the case filed by Jared Taylor (American Renaissance) against Twitter here in February.

Now we learn that Taylor’s lawsuit can advance as a California judge refuses Twitter’s effort to dismiss the case.

Twitter-Jail-300

Editor: I use Twitter almost daily and was steadily moving upward in follower numbers until a few months ago.  It isn’t my imagination, I know that Twitter is doing something (maybe shadow-banning to some of my 14 thousand followers) to keep my numbers down. So they don’t have to ban you outright as they did Taylor, they simply make sure you can’t expand your reach.

Here is the news from AP at ABC News:

More of Australia’s rejected migrants headed to your American city

It has been quiet for awhile—months I believe—since we’ve heard of another shipment of Australia’s rejected asylum seekers to America in that dumb deal Obama made and Trump is continuing.

 

Manus island detainees

Some of these men are your new neighbors!

 

Unlike feckless European leaders, Australia’s government at the time, rightly and successfully, blocked the arrival of migrant boats about five years ago and apprehended those trying to break in to the country.  They were packed off to offshore island detention centers and efforts were made to get them to return to where they came from.

US war ship picks up 40 migrants off coast of Libya, now what?

Overshadowed by the huge controversy surrounding the rescue boat Aquarius’ this past week, is the news that a US naval vessel has picked up 40 migrants off the coast of Libya, and as of this writing is stuck with them.

Other so-called ‘rescue boats’ won’t take them fearing that they will be blocked from landing in nearby European ports.

Could the illegal aliens be brought to the US?

Lewiston, ME: Man attacked by gang of Somali teens dies

We told you recently that roving gangs of Somali ‘children’ and teens were terrorizing park goers in the Somali capital of New England, see here.

Now someone is dead.

In new age of ‘Aquarius’, Mama Merkel between a rock and a hard place

As you can tell, I am fascinated by the sea change in Europe seemingly brought on in less than one week after Italy blocked the landing of a so-called ‘rescue ship’ with more than 600 mostly African men and boys on board.

The ‘Aquarius’ was ultimately “welcomed” by Spain, but that won’t solve the EU migration crisis where frontline countries get the brunt of the invasion unless Socialist Spain wants to keep them and all the future migrants who will surely head that way now.

Mark Steyn astutely pointed out that Angela Merkel, like most European leaders, actually has no children—no personal stake in the future of German culture.   https://www.steynonline.com/7788/leading-by-example

The dark underbelly of refugee resettlement in the US—churches neglecting refugees, working with questionable landlords

When I first began writing this blog in July 2007, one of the issues that attracted my attention was the puzzling decision by the Virginia Council of Churches, working for major resettlement contractor Church World Service, to place refugees in one of the worst buildings in the worst section of Hagerstown, MD.

cws logo

But, here we are 11 years later and Church World Service has placed Congolese refugees in Greensboro, NC in housing that is managed by a company that has a record of many years of troubling business practices.

I’m sure CWS rejoinder is—well give us more taxpayer money and we will get them nicer apartments. 

And, I say, this was supposed to be a public-private partnership, so how about you, CWS, raising private money from your churches to help these Africans you placed (so that North Carolina meatpackers could have cheap compliant labor)!

‘Aquarius’ becomes the war cry of the Roman church against the new Italian government

Readers, when the Italian government held firm and sent the so-called ‘rescue ship’ Aquarius packing it drew the battle lines with the Italian Catholic Church—that is what the church is saying!

Hey Spain! You are next!

I’m writing about this story again today because it represents a critical juncture for the future of Europe.

There is hope (I think!) as I wrote a couple of days ago, here, for the survival of Western Civilization in its birthplace, but action to save it must be swift and happen NOW.

Afghan special immigrant visa (SIV) holders and families enter US in high numbers

Maryland and Virginia are in the top five welcoming states…

state depart. seal

I’ve been told that the flow of these ‘special’ immigrants are helping to keep federal money flowing to the resettlement contractors*** as they are treated as refugees (but not counted as part of the 45,000 ceiling set by the President last September) and as such, the contractors are paid by the head for their work in resettling them.

Just now I checked Wrapsnet to see what those numbers looked like. I’ve written other posts on the topic before, here, so this is an update.

Prior to FY14 we admitted small numbers of the people that supposedly helped us in some capacity in Afghanistan, but the number began to skyrocket in FY14.

The top year so far, 16,866 Afghan SIV arrivals, was in President Trump’s first year in office.

Stalemate at sea ended: Spain welcomed over 600 migrants, mostly men, rejected by Italy, Malta

Yesterday I told you that the Italian government refused entry to a so-called “rescue ship” that had picked up over 600, mostly African illegal aliens, from waters off Libya.

Italy first!

These transport ships have had free passage to Italy for years, but all that is ending now that the Italians have elected a government willing to save Italy for Italians!

The island nation of Malta (an EU country) also refused the ship and its cargo.

Know that Malta has a sweet deal with the US State Department where we have been taking hundreds of their rejected ‘refugees’ to the US in a possibly illegal arrangement without any explanation about why their overflow is our problem.  See my Malta archive which goes back ten years by clicking here.

Here is the news with its usual Leftward spin from NPR (Italian nationalists bad, Spanish socialists good).
