Going away! But, am leaving you with summer reading!

I’ll be leaving today for a ten day visit to various family members in the west.

It is going to be a challenge to not write a post for those ten days.  It might be the longest stretch in 11 years that I won’t have helped to educate my devoted readers about the US Refugee Admissions Program and related migration issues here and abroad.

Even when I did my 2016 (6,000 mile) roadtrip to visit towns struggling with refugees, I managed to post along the way.  However, right now I haven’t a decent laptop in good working order. So, maybe that is a message that I need to take a break.

But, I want to leave you with somethings to read! (9,275 posts to choose from!).

Hungary joins US, gets out of UN Migration compact

No mention in UN compact of  “fundamental human rights of people who want nothing else than to be able to live in peace and security in their own homelands.”

(Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Peter Szijjarto)

 

Good for Hungary! Let’s hope other countries join them and the US in bailing out of the pact, whose work began at that Obama-led UN pow-wow in the fall of 2016.

From the New York Times:

Hungary Pulls Out of U.N. Global Migration Agreement

Hungary pulled out of a United Nations global agreement on migration on Wednesday, citing security concerns, just days after the accord was reached.

Another Bhutanese refugee kills himself; ripping people from their culture sometimes is inhumane

This story comes from Vermont.

I haven’t written about Bhutanese refugees in awhile. To date, we moved over 96,000 of the Nepali people (mostly Hindu, some Buddhists) who had been expelled from Bhutan to American towns and cities.

Go here for a post which gives a little of the background about the George W. Bush era plan to help the UN clean out its camps on the border of Nepal. It was supposed to be a joint effort with many other countries, but of course we took the vast majority of them.

We said we would take 60,000 beginning in 2007, but as is always the case, we go way beyond what we told the public we would do.

Here is where they were distributed in the US (from Wrapsnet):

Bhutanese numbers

Designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a Terrorist Entity

It can be said that Hamas has more than mere "ties" to the Muslim Brotherhood. In fact, its own documents point out that the Muslim Brotherhood has been intrinsically tied to Hamas and the entire Palestinian situation since as early as 1948. Rather than

When Islam’s Largest Army Came: The Siege of Vienna, 1683

Note: Portions of this article were excerpted from Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West. All quotes are sourced therein.  Earlier this month, when Polish lawmaker Dominik Tarczyński was asked how many “refugees” Poland has taken in, he flatly responded: “Zero.”  When the British interviewer, whose nation has taken in millions of […]

Trump Administration may end temporary protected status for Somalis

Frankly, I don’t know why they still have TPS for Somalis when we have admitted over 100,000 Somalis as permanent refugees.  Tens of thousands of permanent Somali refugees are in Minnesota alone.

 

CAIR MN director

One of those stumping for the continuation of TPS for Somalis is Jaylani Hussein, executive director of CAIR MN

 

And, you should know that in order for those here on TPS, the temporary refugees were supposed to have been in the country (usually they were here illegally) before TPS was designated for their country.   It is not an on-going opportunity for certain immigrants to get in and then say—gee I want to apply for TPS.

Story about terror case piqued my interest because of Maryland and drones

Did you follow the case of Mohamed Elshinawy sentenced to 20 years for helping plan a terror attack on US soil (worked with ISIS and Muslim Brotherhood abroad)?

Elshinawy, an Egyptian, lived in Maryland as he worked with Egyptians abroad.

Mohammed-Elshinary-640-320

Maryland terror plotter:  Mohamed Elshinawy

One part of their plans involved using drones as weapons.

I never did tell you that a guy named Mohammed (not this one!) ‘lost’ a drone on my farm over a year ago.  That is all I am going to tell you, but know that you need to all follow what is happening with drones (used for fun and for war). I do.

The Terrorist Semi-States of Hamas and Hizballah

The terrorist threat Israel faces is an unusual one: the terrorist organizations seeking to destroy it control their own territory, making them a kind of semi-state. The armed, fundamentalist entities situated on Israel's borders have control over their

“Soulmates”: Israel’s Netanyahu and Hungary’s Orban meet tomorrow in Israel

Here is an idea for Donald Trump today (the master at making Leftwing media heads explode).

Just as everyone is going crazy over Trump’s summit with Putin, he could invite Hungarian PM Viktor Orban and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House to discuss big beautiful border walls!

 

orban and Netanyahu

Haaretz calls them “soulmates.” Last year France 24 called them “spiritual brothers.”   http://www.france24.com/en/20170718-spiritual-brothers-netanyahu-orban-meet-budapest

 

I can dream, can’t I!

As refugee numbers drop, resettlement contractors shrink and change focus

According to the LA Times, as paying refugee clients decline, refugee NGOs are now focusing on helping immigrants of all stripes on a longer term basis, presumably by raising private money!  Could this be a reawakening of real Christian charity?

I’m really sick of these stories.  I see them all over the country (this is the PR run-up to the President’s decision on how many refugees the US will take in FY19, a decision expected to be made public in September).

However, this story did have a few bits of information that are useful and make it worth posting.

Arrivals of refugees have hit historic lows. To stay afloat, resettlement agencies re-brand

The door to the nonprofit World Relief, tucked between a dance studio and a tutoring company on the second floor of a Garden Grove strip mall, still says “refugee resettlement services.”
