Michelle Malkin Calls Out Lutheran Refugee Contractor as Anti-Trump Political Agitator

“Will a single American elected official please stand up and challenge the continued public funding of this subversive religious racket?”

(Michelle Malkin)

 
Refugee Resettlement Watch may be down temporarily, but thankfully patriots with bigger megaphones have taken up the call to educate Americans about the supposedly ‘religious’ charities that live off of us—taxpayers—in order to promote an Open Borders agenda.

Thanks to reader Richard for tipping me off to Michelle Malkin’s recent column about Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service‘s leading role as an anti-Trump community agitation group (while they collect millions in federal grants and contracts from the Trump Administration)!

Michelle Malkin: Defund Lutherans For Open Borders Now!

If you were shocked by the images of the Mexican flag flying over an Aurora, Colorado, immigration detention center this weekend, you’ll be appalled at an even more disgusting spectacle:
One of the top promoters of the so-called Lights for Liberty nationwide protests by Trump-hating, ICE-bashing radicals was a nonprofit religious organization known as the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.

Krishanti Vignarajah leads the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service following the controversy that saw its previous CEO ousted in 2017. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2017/11/11/source-claims-financial-mismanagement-fraud-harassment-lutheran-immigration-refugee-service-spark-external-investigation/

 
As a designated “host,” LIRS played a key role in publicizing, organizing and participating in demonstrations against President Donald Trump’s deportation enforcement actions targeting some 2,000 illegal immigrants and their families who have ignored removal orders or skipped out on court hearings.
Brazen hatred of cops, Border Patrol and ICE agents were on full display at the open borders protests fronted by LIRS and other left-wing groups, including Code Pink, CASA and CAIR.
[….]
The president and CEO of LIRS, Krishanti Vignarajah, is a Sri Lankan refugee and former Michelle Obama policy director who led the Lights for Liberty event in Washington, D.C. She argues that Americans are obligated to open the floodgates at the southern border (since she turned out so great) and vehemently opposes what she calls “militant border enforcement.” To these border-sabotaging radicals, of course, any border enforcement is “militant.”
LIRS sounds like just the kind of extremist group you’d expect to be kept afloat by billionaire George Soros’ big bucks. But hold on to your wallets and your American flags, folks: In 2016, LIRS relied on $64.7 million in government subsidies from taxpayers—that’s you and me—to fund a whopping 96.2% of its budget.
[….]
Disguised as compassion and Christian morality, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service’s activism is a profit-seeking machine—even as the agency has been plagued by allegations of mismanagement that prompted an external probe two years ago.

These ‘Christian’ groups aren’t passing the plate in their churches, but have latched on to the money stream coming out of your wallets via Washington’s redistributors of your wealth.
Please visit VDARE for more of Malkin’s excellent summary of why this is so outrageous.

Endnote:  At least one of the nine federal refugee contractors isn’t doing so well and has announced this week that it will close its Florida offices, see World Relief running out of your money.
Big fat lie in that story!

World Relief, which opened its Jacksonville office in 1990, is one of nine agencies nationally that collaborates with the U.S. State Department to resettle refugees.
The nonprofits typically help refugees set up their apartments, get their children into school, and go to doctors’ appointments. But the refugees are expected to pay back all the costs. 

That is not true!

  2. NO govt. monies should be going to ANY NGO’s, religious, or otherwise! These NGO’s are tools to bring down America, all of them!

  3. Ah, today all these “Lutherans”, “Catholics”, “Judaists” etc are no more about any religion than the militant “For World Peace” Soviet-sponsored organizations were about any peace in the previous century (thou’ the modern budget-sponsored ones are undoubtedly much greedier). Nevertheless, all of them, both the past and the present, are just a very primitive camouflage for the most destructive anti-American lefties, be the poisonous slime from Europe, Africa, Asia or from the USA herself.

  4. Michelle Malkin is a good truthful woman. Those of you ignorant people, that want open borders. Open your doors to anyone off the street, including criminals. Many bad, evil, drug dealers, gang members, child sex traffickers, terrorists, and criminal type people, are trying to get into this country, and using children to do it, with the help of people like you, mexicn cartels,(killing our youth with their dirty poison drugs)and democrats.

  5. Any article which uses Dems vs. Repubs is going nowhere. It keeps the reader in the corral. Repubs want cheap labor and Dems want huggie budgets. It’s all a scam to bilk the taxpayer and destroy whites.

  6. Actions speak louder than words, Mr. President. He MIGHT do something about this corruption while he campaigns for re-election. I hope he is sincere, but the proof is in the doing. In the meantime the members of the churches involved should be speaking up about the subversion of their places of worship that lets the government use them to implement policies that would otherwise be widely criticized.
