Under Trump Administration Texas is the Number One State for Refugee Resettlement

Texas welcomes refugees
Blue state Texas here we come!

That is really nothing new—the number one target for the Dems to flip—Texas—has been numero uno for a number of years.

Trump’s State Department is simply continuing the trend even in spite of the fact that the state is inundated with border jumpers including the unaccompanied alien teenagers.

I hadn’t checked numbers at the Refugee Processing Center for some time, so thought I would have a look, and thought you might be interested.

Diversity Visa Lottery takes Prize for Suckering US Citizens/American Workers

Do all of you know what the Diversity Visa Lottery is? Maybe you know it by its other name—the Green Card Lottery.

green card lottery

The Immigration Act of 1990, signed into law by George H.W. Bush, set up what I will call a monstrosity.

Supposedly we don’t have enough diversity in America and needed to open our welcoming arms to a larger variety of the world’s ethnic populations (and more workers to compete for American jobs)!

Here is what Wikipedia says about it,

The lottery is administered by the Department of State and conducted under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). It makes available 50,000 immigrant visas annually and aims to diversify the immigrant population in the United States, by selecting applicants from countries with low numbers of immigrants in the previous five years. As of 2017, around 20 million people apply for the lottery each year.

All efforts to kill the program have failed.

And, what drew my attention to it today (I did write about it from time to time at RRW) is this whiny report about how the recent “winners” couldn’t get on the State Department website earlier this week to find out if they had won a ticket to Anytown, USA.

Virginia: FBI Arrests One of their Translators for Lying about his Relationship with Target of Investigation

FBI logoI’m laughing as I write this because what ever made the FBI think they could trust a translator who is Somali to help surveil a fellow Somali.

But, then again, this is an Obama-era FBI pick. Let’s hope the Trump FBI is wiser and smarter.

The bare bones news about the “Virginia man” is here at the US Justice Department website (hat tip: Cathy), but believe it or not, I see that CNN has excellent coverage in my quick look around at which media outlets were onto the story.

Maryland: Obama Judge Gives CAIR Opportunity to Crow

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its friends on the Left including the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society are still trying to undo President Trump’s ban on migrants from certain countries all of which are terrorist hotbeds.

Rochester Mayor Responds to Trump Suggestion that Border Jumpers be Sent to Sanctuary Cities

But we don’t have the housing and the resources to care for them, Mayor Lovely Warren said earlier this week!

Exactly!

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren:  We are welcoming, but we don’t have enough housing and basic necessities!

 

And, she thinks America does (in some other city)?

The other day I mentioned an idea that apparently is being kicked around in the more-immigration-is-better crowd and that is to turn the asylum seekers (aka illegal aliens) over to refugee resettlement agencies for care.

But, of course, the kicker is that those phony-baloney non-profits are all living off the US taxpayer to begin with. 

But what the heck, at least it isn’t the Rochester citizens carrying the burden, right Mayor Warren?

Arrests Made in Lewiston, ME Death of White Man at the Hands of a Gang of African Refugees

I first told you about the clash instigated by a gang of ethnically mixed ‘youths’ here at RRW in June of 2018.

Many months later the local police have finished their investigation and arrests were made this week in the killing of  Donald Giusti who died when he was hit by a rock and beaten at a Lewiston park last June.

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society Cries the Blues over Trump’s Low Refugee Admission Numbers

No, they are not alone, the other eight federal contractors have begun their anti-Trump chorus as the 6-month-mark in the fiscal year has been reached and they see that once again refugees (paying clients) admitted through the US Refugee Admissions Program will be low.

(I reported the low number here last week.)

Hias at the border
The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society at the border last week putting on an anti-Trump media event!  Shouldn’t they be focused on the refugees we pay them to care for?  https://www.hias.org/blog/jewish-clergy-us-mexico-border-examine-human-rights-issues

 

Not surprisingly my alerts are filled with news stories this week about how the meany Donald Trump is causing suffering for those waiting all around the world for their ticket to your town.

But, as you may remember, the Trump Administration said the numbers for regular refugee admissions would be low because the Administration was faced with a huge and growing-daily backlog of asylum seekers at the southern border.

Asylum seekers are refugee wannabes—they say they will be persecuted if returned to their home countries and therefore have a “right” to ask to stay in America permanently.

But, this is what never made sense to me—if groups like the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society cared so much about those waiting to get here from Africa, Asia and the Middle East who have been at least nominally screened, why are they at the border putting on media stunts to pressure us to allow illegal aliens (they call them NEW Americans) of all sorts across the border?
