Kentucky: Refugee Seniors Going Hungry as US Imports More Poverty

One of the good things about this new blog is that I can still bring you stories about refugees while enjoying a much broader choice of news across a wide spectrum of involving frauds, crooks and criminals.

This news, meant to tug on your heartstrings (the Left is good at that!), points to an area of the US Refugee Admissions Program that should make your head explode!

heads explode

But, before you read it remember: Don’t blame these poor old souls we yanked out of Africa and out of their culture, blame the Open Borders agitators and lobbyists in the refugee industry always on the hunt to import more poverty to America.

Although many of the volunteers on the ground just want to do good by the the refugees, the leadership of the industry headed by Socialists/Marxists! wants to import poverty as a way to reshape America.

If it makes no sense to you that anyone would advocate overloading our welfare system, read about the Cloward and Piven strategy when you have a few extra minutes.

Now to the news from WKU (NPR Kentucky),

The UN was feeding them in Africa and here they go hungry! WTH!

Elder Refugees In Kentucky At Risk for Hunger

Feeding Kentucky, a nonprofit with a mission to alleviate hunger across the Bluegrass State, reports that food insecurity is a reality for one in 10 residents age 60 and older.

Elder refugees in Kentucky face an ever higher risk of hunger due to language barriers and lack of transportation.

On a recent rainy afternoon in Louisville, refugees–some of them in their 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s–lined up at outdoor tables filled with fresh leafy green lettuce, bright red bell peppers, cucumbers and mushrooms.

Federally funded program for refugees over 60 years old!

Kentucky Refugee Ministries, or KRM, is a resettlement agency that has the state’s only federally-funded program for refugees 60 and older. This once-a-month mobile food pantry is a partnership between KRM and Louisville’s Dare to Care food bank.

Eva Nyerges is the KRM coordinator for the Louisville Refugee Elder Program.

“We have on occasion had people say, ‘You know, I don’t have enough money for food. I don’t have food stamps. Will you take me to a food pantry?’” said Nyerges. “And that’s why we kind of started trying to show individual people their local food pantry and help them get down here to KRM’s mobile food pantry.”

Older refugees arrive in the US and are eligible for SSI and Food Stamps!

Nyerges says most of those in the Refugee Elder Program get Supplemental Security Income, or SSI.

A spokesman for the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service said refugees are eligible for benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, based on income and resources.

We are cleaning out UN camps housing the DR Congolese

At the outdoor food pantry, one of the elder refugees trying to manage two bags of vegetables and an umbrella is 75-year-old Namagishu Namahoro. She’s from the Democratic Republic of Congo and spoke through interpreter Patrick Bagaza.

“Yes, I’m happy just to get the food,” said Namahoro. When asked what kind of items she was looking for, Bagaza said “tomatoes and other names she doesn’t know, but the food she got she’s happy, it’s good.”

Five million elderly Americans are going hungry and we bring in more hungry seniors from Africa, Asia and the Middle East!

Even though elder refugees face many challenges in having steady supply of fresh, nutritious food, they are far from alone. Across the nation, nearly five million people age 60 and over are at-risk for hunger.

More here.

I checked the data at Wrapsnet just now and see that we have passed the 50,000 DR Congolese flow to the US that Obama promised the UN we would take.

Of the 50,848 DR Congolese the US State Department and its contractors placed in your towns since the beginning of FY14, 2,215 were between the ages of 51-64 and 653 were over 65 years old. (And, those numbers are just for refugees from the DR Congo!).

question markWhat do you do?  Every opportunity you get—to speak to an elected official, to write a letter to the editor, or just when talking with friends and neighbors—your message should be WE MUST TAKE CARE OF AMERICANS FIRST!

  1. This is funny because our local Refugee Ministry claims that the refugees are all self supporting after 3 months and pay taxes. She must have forgot about the elders and those coming with younger family members. She also forgets to mention that since they don’t make enough to support the family they are on food stamps, medicaid etc. But they are not on welfare.

  2. I have many relatives in Kentucky, there are not many jobs. Why are they taking in elderly people who will never assimilate and will need complete assistance? I was a medical transcriber for years, then they sent my work to India so they could make more money off of them. Why did they not train many people in KY areas who could do this job at their home? They at least speak English. Now all the medical file jobs are in India and the companies are raking in the dough. Why not help down and out American citizens?

    1. This is so true. Anything that can be done by computer is in India. Obama spent $2billion to make medical records electronic and it was already set up to send it all to India. Despite massive offshoring, the corporations have convinced Trump that the few jobs left here need to be filled by immigrants.

      Companies that earn the bulk of their income off of government funded programs such as Medicare should be required to hire American. Even drugs are made in India. Again, if we pay for their development and support their prices by getting hosed, the least they could do is make them here.

      Their greed defies belief.

    2. The US made an alliance/initiative with Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. It is called the Alliance for Prosperity. It was started in 2015, to help curb the illegal immigration, drug trafficking and human trafficking (Congress approved spending the money for this program and then denies there is an illegal immigration, drug trafficking and human trafficking problem). From 2015 – 2018 the US has given $2+ billion dollars to these countries, for education, job creation, fighting corrupt government, and other things. Made me wonder if the US companies are relocating to these places to get some of that money. In addition, I found another article that said money that goes to those governments ends up in gangs like MS13. MS13 pays more money to cops than the government, so the cops end up working for the gangs. Here is a link about the Alliance for Prosperity program in general https://www.state.gov/p/wha/rt/strat/ Here is a page on the state department website saying: “The United States is committing $5.8 billion through public and private investment to promote institutional reforms and development in the Northern Triangle. Recognizing the importance of promoting economic growth and opportunities for the people of the region, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) has already invested and mobilized more than $1 billion in the Northern Triangle since 2017 focused on infrastructure, energy, economic growth, and job creation. OPIC could invest and mobilize up to $2.5 billion more in this region if commercially viable projects are identified. The Millennium Challenge Corporation is providing over $320 million in funding for infrastructure, education and governance projects El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. At least $1.8 billion in Department of State, U.S. Agency for International Development, and regional funding for Fiscal Years 2015 to 2018 has been allocated to the Northern Triangle governments of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. The Administration is requesting an additional $180 million in bilateral assistance for the region in our FY 2019 request.” https://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2018/12/288168.htm So the US is giving money for ‘dreamers’ and giving money to their countries to educate them and create jobs for them in their own countries. The president of Honduras wrote this article, and said the US is partly to blame for the problem. https://cco.ndu.edu/Portals/96/Documents/prism/prism_5-4/Alliance%20for%20Prosperity.pdf

  3. Your picture (of head exploding) is funny but accurate. We don’t take care of our own, but we will take in the world’s burdens. Who do they think is going to pay for all of this? Oh, that’s right. We are. Few people know that if you become destitute and need Medicaid, the state will search for recoverable assets, like maybe a home you worked 30+ years to pay for. You, and your children, can always afford to be more generous on behalf of the ‘elite’.
