Trump Administration Proposal Would Limit Refugee Placement to Only Towns/States that Want Them!

It is a “malevolent and wasteful plan to concentrate refugees in blue states.”

(Mark Hetfield of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society)

 

Sounds like a good plan, but it does have problems which unfortunately I haven’t the time to discuss this morning.  The biggest problem is that it is a band aid.  The entire Refugee Program should be scrapped in my opinion.

That said, it sure is fun to watch Trump twist their tails!

From NBC News,

Trump admin weighs letting states, cities deny entry to refugees approved for resettlement in U.S.

 

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is considering a new policy that would allow state and local jurisdictions to deny entry to refugees who have been approved for resettlement in the United States, according to a draft of an executive order obtained by NBC News.

According to the draft, “the federal government will resettle refugees only where both the relevant state and local governments have consented to participate” in the program that allows refugees to resettle.

The plans are currently out for review by lawyers and counterparts at various government agencies, a senior DHS official said.

If a state or local jurisdiction does not agree to take in refugees, the federal government will have to find another location, according to the draft. An exception to this rule would be made in the case of resettling spouses or children of refugees already settled.

The White House and the Department of Homeland Security did not respond to requests for comment.

Refugee rights organizations have long advocated for refugees to be relocated in areas where there are already refugees of the same country living to create a sense of community for those fleeing violence and persecution.

It is wonderful how the President gets them to show their colors! 

Here a former Obama official admits there wouldn’t be enough ‘welcoming’ states and cities (if given the opportunity to say NO!) to accommodate all the refugees the refugee industry is demanding.

Peter Boogaard, who worked on immigration issues in the Obama White House, said the executive order would hinder religious organizations, like the Catholic Church, from resettling immigrants in states around the country and “would also have a dramatic impact on the ability of future administrations to return refugee admissions to the normal historic levels.”

[….]

If carried out, the draft executive order on refugees would undermine efforts to resettle them and violate the intent of a 1980 law that clearly grants the federal government authority over refugee policy, said Mark Hetfield, president and CEO of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), which works to resettle refugees under State Department agreements.

“Governors could elect not to take part in the refugee resettlement program. That would have a horrible impact on the program. That would literally be an abdication of federal authority,” Hetfield said.

He called it a “malevolent and wasteful plan to concentrate refugees in blue states.”

To add fuel to the fire, tell Trump you like the idea, but it doesn’t go far enough!

Department of Homeland Security NOW Collecting Biometric Data on Refugees

Just now? 

Facial-Recognition-tool-e1564154896685 (1)

Didn’t we hear for years during Obama’s presidency that all refugees were being screened and that included the use of so-called biometric data collection?

Every time I saw the Open Borders pushers say that I laughed because what good is the data if there was no data base to compare it to.

Well, we learn here that the Trump Administration is collecting the data on wannabe refugees and groups like Human Rights Watch are squawking!  Of course they are!

If wannabe New Americans have nothing to hide, what is the problem?

From Newsmax,

Report: DHS Collecting Biometric Data on Refugees

 

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has been collecting biometric information for months on refugees who are referred for resettlement — retaining the data even if they never enter the country.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees every year sends profiles on refugees for potential resettlement to federal agencies, according to a report Wednesday by Defense One.

The agencies use the information to determine which refugees may enter the United States. The data include names, birthdates and countries of origin. [Pretty easy to cheat on these things!—-ed]

However, “as of late” the information includes biometric data, Defense One reports.

In January, the United Nations agency contracted with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to share fingerprints, iris scans, face images and other biometric data on the refugees referred for resettlement.

According to Defense One, the agency said the data will help U.S. officials better identify and vet potential refugees.

“Biometric verification guards against substitution of individuals or identity fraud in the resettlement process,” USCIS officials said in a privacy impact assessment for the program.

“Many refugees live for long periods in asylum countries, and the use of biometrics ensures that there is [an] unbroken continuity of identity over time and between different locations.”

United Nations data cited by Defense One showed that fewer than a quarter of the nearly 85,000 cases reviewed by USCIS last year led to refugees being admitted to the U.S.

Wow!  We rejected 33,485 refugee applicants that apparently had been selected by the UN for us!  What does that tell you!  A lot of cheaters?

The agency rejected 33,485 referrals and closed 30,438 more cases for unspecified reasons.

Human Rights Watch is not happy!

“A centralized database of biometric data belonging to refugees, without appropriate controls, could really lead to surveillance of those refugees as well as potentially coercive forms of scrutiny,” Amos Toh, an artificial intelligence researcher at Human Rights Watch, told Nextgov.com.

If the ‘refugees’ are not liars, cheaters, crooks, murderers, or terrorists, why should it matter if their biometric data is kept on file? One of these days they might show up at the southern border and we would want to know who they are—right!

Judicial Watch Major Court Victory: Montgomery County, Maryland Must Clean up Voter Rolls!

Since we are on the subject of sanctuary county—Montgomery County, MD (see my previous post)—here is a bit of good news for a change!  (Hat tip: Cathy)

 

judicial-watch-logo

Thank God for Judicial Watch!  Note that it took TWO full years before the county is being forced to comply.

From JW’s press release:

JUDICIAL WATCH VICTORY: FEDERAL COURT ORDERS MARYLAND TO PRODUCE VOTER REGISTRATION LIST DATA TO JUDICIAL WATCH

 

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that a federal court has ordered the State of Maryland to produce voter list data for Montgomery County, the state’s biggest county. The court ruling comes in the Judicial Watch lawsuit filed July 18, 2017, against Montgomery County and the Maryland State Boards of Elections under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA).

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, Baltimore Division (Judicial Watch vs. Linda H. Lamone, et al. (No. 1:17-cv-02006)). The decision follows NVRA-related Judicial Watch successes in California and Kentucky that could lead to removal of up to 1.85 million inactive voters from voter registration lists. The NVRA requires states to take reasonable steps to clean up its voting rolls and to make documents about its voter list maintenance practices available to anyone who asks.

Judicial Watch had sought the Maryland voter list data after discovering that there were more registered voters in Montgomery County than citizens over the age of 18 who could register.

[….]

The dispute over the voter registration list arose from an April 11, 2017, notice letter sent to Maryland election officials, in which Judicial Watch explained Montgomery County had an impossibly high registration rate. The letter threatened a lawsuit if the problems with Montgomery County’s voter rolls were not fixed. The letter also requested access to Montgomery County voter registration lists in order to evaluate the efficacy of any “programs and activities conducted for the purpose of ensuring the accuracy and currency of Maryland’s official eligible voter lists during the past 2 years.”

Democrat Maryland officials, in response, attacked and smeared Judicial Watch by suggesting it was an agent of Russia.

Just a reminder!  Maryland is run by the Dems even as it has a Republican (never Trumper!) governor.

Another Rape in Montgomery County, MD, Sanctuary to Illegals

I know you are probably saying this is happening in every sanctuary city, county and state in America, but since I once lived in MoCo, these cases are of great interest.

(See my post from Saturday about two Salvadorans raping a child, here.)

Indeed the police there have notoriously bent over backward to please the multiculturally diverse population including the huge numbers of Central Americans—Salvadorans, Guatemalans and Hondurans—who have migrated there drawn no doubt by the county’s sanctuary status.

Today’s alleged rapist is Honduran, but you wouldn’t know that from the Montgomery County, PD press release.  (Hat tip: Gail.)

Suspect Arrested for Silver Spring Rape and Attempted Second-Degree Murder of Victim

 

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Department – Special Victims Investigations Division (SVID) have arrested and charged Kevin Mendoza, age 26, of the 8500 block of 16th Street in Silver Spring, with the first-degree rape and attempted second-degree murder of an adult female that occurred at an apartment building in Silver Spring.

On August 16 at approximately 11:55 p.m., officers responded to the report of a rape that had just occurred at an apartment building in the 8500 block of 16th Street. Investigation by SVID detectives has determined that the victim was carrying items from her vehicle parked in the parking lot to the apartment building when she noticed a male that appeared to be following her. As she unlocked the door to the building, the male suspect grabbed her from behind and threw her to the floor. The victim attempted to yell and resist but the suspect began to strangle her with his hands. As the victim continued to attempt to escape the suspect struck her multiple times in the face and head with a closed fist. The suspect then raped the victim.

The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of multiple injuries sustained during the attack. Doctors advised detectives that the severity of the strangulation the victim suffered could have resulted in her death.

Through investigation, Mendoza, who is a former resident of the apartment building in which he committed the rape, was developed as a suspect.

Today, at approximately 10:34 a.m., officers arrested Mendoza on Ross Road in Silver Spring. He was transported to the Central Processing Unit and charged with first-degree rape, attempted second-degree murder, and first-degree assault. Bond information is not available at this time.

[End of press release.]

But get this….

No mention in that press release about Mendoza’s nationality or immigration status. 

So, I had a little look around and guess what!

ICE has lodged a detainer against him—a Honduran illegal alien!

From Fox 5:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation officers lodged a detainer with the Montgomery County Detention Center Tuesday on a 26-year-old man who police say violently attacked a woman in Silver Spring last week.

[….]

According to ICE, Mendoza is a Honduran National who is unlawfully present in the U.S.

ICE released the following statement on detainers Tuesday:

“Detainers serve as a legally-authorized request, upon which a law enforcement agency may rely, to continue to maintain custody of an alien for up to 48 hours so that ICE may assume custody for removal purposes. Pursuant to ICE policy, all ICE detainers are submitted with an accompanying administrative arrest warrant or warrant of removal depending upon the circumstances of the individual case. “

I’m wondering if the police in this wealthy county adjoining Washington, DC are having any second thoughts about the county’s sanctuary status and their long-held practice of leaving the illegal aliens alone?

Germany Considering Stripping Refugee Status for those Going ‘Home’ for a Holiday

I’m telling you this news from Germany because this is a big problem in the US as well.

When someone is approved for refugee status they have sworn they will be persecuted if returned to their home country, so how can they just pop off to that same country for a holiday?

Trump and Omar 2
If the President is going to continue admitting refugees to the US, he could press for reforms and this would be a good starting place. Return home for any reason to the country of your persecution and be stripped of your US passport when you try to get back into the US!

It happens all the time with ‘refugees’ in the US—the Bosnians traveled back and forth after being admitted by the tens of thousands to the US under Bill Clinton, but most famously the Somalis do it all the time.

Remember we learned here in January that Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar traveled back to the Somalia she said she escaped as a child refugee.

Now it appears that Germany may be going to get serious about the traveling-home-for-the-holidays scam!

From Breitbart (hat tip: Jim),

Germany To Strip Asylum Status of ‘Refugees’ Who Go Home on Holiday

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has announced the government will be cracking down on Syrians with asylum status who go on holiday back to Syria.

Bavarian centre-right leader Horst Seehofer said that the government would be looking to strip Syrians who visit their home country on holiday of their asylum status, saying that those who regularly travel to the country cannot make a serious claim that they are being persecuted there, Kronen Zeitung reports.

“We have to deprive them of their refugee status,” Seehofer added and said that the Interior Ministry was monitoring any such activity from Syrians with refugee status living in Germany.

[….]

The revelations of asylum seekers and refugees making holidays in their home countries — where they allegedly fled persecution — are not a new development. As early as January of 2017 it was shown that asylum seekers in Switzerland were using welfare cash to go on vacations to Eritrea, despite claiming they risked death if they were ever sent back to the country.

Aras Bacho
Aras Bacho famously blamed German women when sexually attacked by refugee men.  http://politicalfilth.blogspot.com/2016/12/huffington-posts-syrian-refugee-writer.html

[….]

Earlier this year, noted Syrian refugee blogger Aras Bacho complained that he would like to go and visit Syria this summer but was unable to and said he knew at least six other Syrians who want for a holiday in Syria.

“Unfortunately, I was unable to go on holiday to Syria because something very important got in the way, and I hope to catch up very soon during the holidays. Germany is stressful and you need some kind of break,” he said.

I guess you’ve seen the news that dear old Deutschland might be headed into a recession.

Wonder if admitting a million needy (mostly Muslim) refugees in a few short years had anything to do with it?

Missouri: Somali Wanted for Kidnapping Children as Mother’s Body is Identified.

In the little meatpacking town of  Noel, Missouri, a Somali national is wanted for kidnapping children of a deceased white woman whose body was stuffed in a suitcase and found along Highway 59.

As of right now, Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed, a former Tyson Foods employee, is still on the loose.

Authorities are looking for Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed, 37, a Somali national.  Charged with kidnapping, but did he kill Jessica before he took the kids?

Body Found In McDonald County Identified As Missing Noel Woman, Children Found Safe In Iowa

 

MCDONALD COUNTY (KFSM) — The McDonald County Sheriff’s Office has identified a woman whose body was found along Highway 59 near Noel, Missouri.

I blame our PC culture for creating a whole generation of naive young women not sufficiently warned about African immigrants.

Jessica McCormack’s body was found July 29 on a steep hillside beside a suitcase along Highway 59 between Noel and Ginger Blue.

Investigators say the 25-year-old had not been seen since the middle of July. Authorities were not notified by anyone that she had been missing.

[….]

The children have been identified as 4-year-old Siah Casillas, 20-month-old Saidah Noor and 7-month-old Intisar Mahamed.

It is believed that at least one of the children was fathered by Mahamed.

Here is the most recent news,

Noel man charged with kidnapping murder victim’s daughter

 

A Noel man has been charged in federal court with kidnapping the 4-year-old daughter of a woman whose body was discovered in a suitcase last month. Read the full press release below:

Mahamud Tooxoow Mahamed, 37, a Somali national***, was charged in a criminal complaint filed late Tuesday in the U.S. District Court in Springfield, Mo. Mahamed is not in federal custody and is a fugitive from justice.

According to an affidavit filed in support of the federal criminal complaint, the body of Jessica McCormack, of Noel, was discovered on July 29, 2019, near Missouri Highway 59 between Lanagan, Mo., and Noel.

The last time McCormack was seen alive, the affidavit says, was when law enforcement officers responded to a call at her home on July 16, 2019. Also present in the residence were Mahamed, who was identified as McCormack’s paramour, and McCormack’s three daughters, identified in court documents as Jane Doe 1 (four years old), Jane Doe 2 (two years old), and Jane Doe 3 (six months old). Jane Doe 2 is Mahamed’s daughter.

McCormack’s children could not be located after her body was discovered and identified.

An Amber Alert was issued for McCormack’s three children, who were located at a residence in Des Moines, Iowa, and taken into state custody on Aug. 8, 2019.

According to the affidavit, a woman who formerly worked with Mahamed at the Tyson plant in Noel told law enforcement officers that Mahamed arrived at her Des Moines residence with the children on Aug. 5, 2019. She discovered he had left on Aug. 8, 2019, the affidavit says, when she found a note from Mahamed informing her that he could not care for the children.

*** By the way, almost all Somalis in the US came in through the US Refugee Admissions Program.  At Refugee Resettlement Watch I had an extensive archive on how meatpackers and their appetite for cheap labor were negatively changing the heartland.

Church World Service on the Sanctuary Bandwagon; Cut Their Federal Funding!

Recently I told you that Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, a federal refugee contractor, had become the first church group to declare that they are a sanctuary church that seeks to protect the “undocumented.”

We see that another federal contractor, Church World Service, which received $39 million from US taxpayers in 2018, is on the sanctuary bandwagon.

 

MOCO rapists
No pictures of crying kids!  By the way, these are two Salvadorans charged in the rape of an 11-year-old in Montgomery County, MD a sanctuary county.  I didn’t have the photos for my post on Saturday, so thought I would put them here.  Why not!  This is what you get with sanctuary policies!  https://fraudscrookscriminals.com/2019/08/17/maryland-salvadorans-arrested-for-repeatedly-raping-11-year-old/

 

Church World Service wants you to contribute to their sanctuary scheme. (Hat tip: Joanne)

From their website:

With the resurgence of the Sanctuary Movement, hundreds of congregations are standing in solidarity with immigrants and providing spaces of sanctuary for individuals facing deportation or targeted by hate. The Sanctuary Movement has been lifting up stories of immigrant leaders and people of faith working together to stop individual deportations and demonstrate against mass deportations and detention.

CWS fuck
Shirt with CWS logo. Did you pay for her T-shirt?

We are living in extraordinary times, which call for more resources and support from as many people as possible to help strengthen our capacity to create sanctuary spaces, outreach to new congregations and build new coalitions.

People of faith from all traditions are called to respond to the current political reality by joining the Sanctuary Movement and working together to lift up the prophetic voice of immigrant leaders.

Please donate to the Sanctuary Movement today.

 

Just so you know these are the Member congregations Church World Service claims as their own.  It is over 50 years since Cloward and Piven wrote about the strategy to transform America—to bring on the revolution—a strategy that required getting the churches on the side of the communists, see here.

Member Communions

Is your church on that list?

Checking their latest financials, you can see that CWS received 62 percent ($39 million) of its income from you via your tax dollars in this most recent Charity Navigator report.

Look at the bright side!

I guess they are making a big push for dollars for their sanctuary program because they are way down in government funding.  See here in January that in the previous year they got $68 million directly from the US Treasury (from you!).

For new readers, see the list of all nine UN/US State Department refugee resettlement “partners” here.

If you haven’t done it already, you must tell the Prez to cut all federal funding of these fake non-profits sucking off the federal teat while breaking the law and harboring illegal aliens!
