There are hundreds of subcontractors working for the nine contractors (see present list here)*** that control all resettlement in the US.
Some will soon be closing.
That is a far cry from 2016 when the US State Department and the BIG NINE were aggressively trying to open as many as 45 new sites with Hillary on the horizon!
So the feds will cut them loose from your taxpayer funding, but aren’t they still non-profit groups with the ability to raise private money and take care of poor people with private charity the old fashioned way—Yes!
Here is Reuters (Hat tip: Joanne) where we are told that refugees will be left in the lurch and their “integration” will be stalled without FEDERALLY funded workers to help them.
(Reuters) – The U.S. State Department has told refugee agencies it will sharply pare back the number of offices across the country authorized to resettle people in 2018 as President Donald Trump cuts the number of refugees allowed into the United States.
The announcement was made at a Dec. 1 meeting in Washington with State Department officials and representatives from nine major refugee agencies, several executives of the agencies said.
Advocates said the decision is likely to lead to the closure of dozens of resettlement offices around the country, potentially leaving some refugees without access to services that help them integrate into American life. Several state refugee coordinators said they had also been made aware of the closures.
Refugee resettlement in the United States is handled by nine non-profit agencies that receive funding from the federal government for some of their refugee work. [For some! For almost all of their work! Some are 97-99% taxpayer funded. This is why we hate the mainstream media!—ed]
They partner with, or oversee, hundreds of local offices in nearly every state that help new arrivals with basic tasks like enrolling children in school, arranging doctors’ visits and applying for Social Security cards and other documents.
Though the agencies are independent, they must get government approval for where they will resettle new refugees.
They don’t need government approval to care for those they brought in and dropped off in previous years!
Go here to see who is whining.
*** Below are the nine contractors that control all resettlement in America (go here to see how many millions of dollars that US taxpayers pay them for their ‘charitable good works.’)
There can be no real reform of the US Refugee Admissions Program as long as these nine Leftwing political advocacy groups (masquerading as private humanitarian organizations) are driving the process and are funded on a per refugee head basis. Financially starving them out might be the only way to do it!
