Yesterday Michelle Malkin penned an excellent piece published here at TownHall about an opportunity that President Donald Trump has given all of you—your city/county elected government must approve in writing if yours will be a community that will take on the financial burden of hosting more poverty from the third world.
(Your governor must also approve resettlement in writing. See a side bar at RRW with a list of seven governors who have already indicated that their state is open for MORE refugees.)
For nearly 40 years all decisions about resettlement sites were made at the US State Department and driven by nine unelected refugee resettlement contractors*** with no consideration given to the citizens of the communities chosen.
Needless to say, those nine want to continue to be paid by federal taxpayers and continue to decide if your town is theirs to change forever.
This is a bit of what Michelle Malkin reported yesterday:
Citizen Revolt: Resist Refugee Resettlement Dumps
Should U.S. citizens have input into whether their neighborhoods are fundamentally and permanently transformed into United Nations refugee camps full of welfare dependents and tax burdens?
Government-funded charities that profit mightily from the federal refugee resettlement program say: “Hell, no!”
But President Donald Trump and growing numbers of informed Americans across the heartland are raising their voices to say: “Heavens, yes!”
This week, an extraordinary revolt took place in Bismarck, North Dakota, where an overflow crowd of residents braved subzero temperatures to register their opposition to allowing the Lutheran Social Services to dump any new refugees in their backyard.
Thanks to an executive order signed by Trump in September, local communities now have explicit opt-in rights to stem the lucrative tide of refugees coming largely from Third World countries and jihadist breeding grounds.
Open borders legal groups are, of course, challenging the order in court. These zealots object to states and localities exercising self-determination when it comes to rejecting refugees because it would undermine “national immigration policy,” yet they promote illegal immigrant sanctuary policies in states and localities that create uncontrollable criminal anarchy.
While GOP Gov. Doug Burgum signaled his support for increased importation of refugees, Brian Bitner, chairman of the Burleigh County Commission, echoed the concerns of his constituents. “North Dakota is already the highest per capita state for refugee resettlement in terms of number of citizens, so in the absence of any sort of number, there’s no way we could know the cost to the state or the county, and I simply can’t support that,” Bitner told local media at the Bismarck protest.
The President has given you all a say for the first time in nearly 40 years about whether your town/city/county will host hundreds/thousands of third world refugees entering America.
Will you take a few minutes to make your voices heard?
Please see my post today at Refugee Resettlement Watch to find out what to do.
Shame on You if You Don’t Take 15 Minutes to Do This!
My apologies to readers. I’ve been so busy at RRW this last week or so, I haven’t been able to keep up with all of your e-mails and story ideas for ‘Frauds and Crooks,‘ but I must direct my time at the moment to helping to advance the President’s agenda on refugees.
If you are concerned about the US Refugee Admissions Program, please see RRW every day!
