Syrian jihadists belonging to al-Qaida's former Syrian affiliate Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) oppose a Turkish-Russian agreement to establish a demilitarized buffer zone around the country's Idlib province. This area in northwestern Syria remains the last

Look to Europe to fully comprehend why the US must build the wall

Frankly, I was surprised to see a story with this headline at Fox News (the headline and the story sound like something CNN would feature).

Europe’s migration ‘fixes’ trigger disgusting humanitarian crises

It is about the difficult conditions in detention facilities featuring especially a Greek detention camp on the island of Lesbos, but the Fox reporter seems to have swallowed, hook, line and sinker, the international Left’s talking points.

Lesbos camp

Moria camp on the Greek island of Lesbos:  Build the wall before we get to this stage in America!

AG Jeff Sessions carrying out Trump immigration restriction agenda

….and boy are the Leftwing Open Borders agitators steamed!

Former US Senator and now Attorney General Sessions, who you will recall got on the Trump train in the earliest days of the campaign, is quietly carrying out an immigration restriction agenda at the Justice Department and in the courts.

The primary reason we elected this president in the first place was to get immigration under control and Sessions is doing that!

Trump and Sessions 2

If the President foolishly pushes Jeff Sessions out of the Justice Department, the Senate will never confirm a replacement who would carry out the immigration control agenda that Sessions has undertaken.

Yesterday, I told you about the asylum scam, here, and today we bring your attention to Mother Jones with this headline:

Sessions Is Poised to Make It Vastly Harder for Asylum-Seekers to Get Out of Detention

The International Criminal Court: A Failed Experiment

So what is this asylum issue the Secretary of State mentioned?

Several people have asked me about the statement made by Secretary of State Pompeo when he announced the Administration’s intentions of capping refugee admissions at 30,000.

Intelligence Chiefs Testify To Senate Committee On World Wide Threats

According to the New York Times, Pompeo mentioned a backlog of 800,000 asylum cases piled up in immigration courts and the NYT is quick to point out that the number is too high.

It is ONLY 320,000!

(And, remember readers that those waiting for their asylum hearing are mostly free to roam the USA, relatively few are in detention!)

Turkish Education: Same Old Religious Obsession, Only Worse

In 2017, Turkey stopped teaching evolution at secondary school: for extremists, Darwinism remains a taboo subject. Instead, school textbooks started teaching Turkish pupils "jihad." A good school, according to extremists, is not where science is taught

Are the refugee contractors and their friends in Congress preparing to end-run the President on refugee cap?

I reported this morning that the Refugee Council USA (RCUSA), the lobbying arm of the refugee industry, was sounding pretty cocky about going for their 75,000 refugee cap for Fiscal Year 2019 which begins less than two weeks from now in spite of the President’s proposed 30,000 cap.

Why I think a refugee cap of 30,000 was a bad decision

I’m going to try to be brief because faithful readers have heard this all before.

The President was going to be vilified if he had come in anywhere under the 75,000 the ‘humanitarian’ refugee industry was pushing for anyway.  (See Pompeo announces 30,000 cap here yesterday.)

 

moratorium-logo-update-blk1

He should have, in my opinion, halted the entire program until it was completely reformed. *

Simply cutting the numbers for a few years will do NOTHING. If the basic flawed structure is left in place the big contractors will simply hold out until Trump is no longer in office. They have already said so!

Yes, one or two of the contractors might go belly-up with a paying client number of 30,000 or less to be divvied up by the present nine contractors, but the giants, like the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and the International Rescue Committee, will survive.

Lobbying arm of the refugee industry puts out statement, says they will work toward their 75,000 refugees despite Prez

I have no idea what they are talking about in the final paragraph of a statement put out yesterday by the Refugee Council USA (RCUSA) in response to the Secretary of State’s announcement that the CEILING (the top number that could be admitted to the US) will be 30,000 in FY19.  See my post yesterday, here.

rcusa with caption

Over the years we have written extensively about RCUSA, a consortium set up under the auspices of Church World Service, of the federal refugee contractors and other assorted ‘human rights’ groups to promote refugee admissions, organize demonstrations against this President, and to lobby Congress since technically the contractors are not permitted to use their federal dollars to lobby (see ORR letter below).

See my RCUSA file here, note that they joined CAIR to protest President Trump here.

And, don’t miss this post where I reported that RCUSA had hired the now disgraced and disbanded Podesta Group to lobby key Senators for more refugees.
