“These are not people who are wasting time with the system….”
(Anna Mongo, Jericho Road Community Health Center)
So, what does Ms. Mongo mean by that?
She means, although she dare not say it, that there is a LEGAL process by which legitimate refugees from the DR Congo are getting into the US right now (by the thousands), yet this bunch was financed by someone to rush our southern border.
Why is no investigative reporter finding out who is paying for the invasion?
Tell me that these poor migrants from Central Africa flew to Brazil and walked up from there through many countries, did not ask for asylum in any of them, and then stormed across our border.
When I saw the newsthe other day about 350 illegal aliens, mostly from the DR Congo, arriving at our southern border and being sent to San Antonio by border patrol I was steamed to say the least!
What the h***! We have admitted over 50,000 ‘refugees’ from the DR Congo since fiscal year 2015 (not quite 5 years).
50,314 to be exact as of today!
Yet we are expected to welcome hundreds more coming in illegally.
And, by the way, who funded these ‘impoverished’ people to make the long journey from Central Africa? Does anyone in authority ever ask that question?
Before I get to the maddening news and give you some background on why they are now being shipped to “welcoming” Maine, below is a map of where the 50,314 have been placed in less than 5 years. I will bet most of you never had a clue this was happening.
And, if you missed it, the DR Congo is Ebola central in Africa these days!
This is news you aren’t going to see on cable TV or in the mainstream media. After a decade of legal wrangling, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) was finally facing a jury trial (to begin in September) in a case that alleged they had hired a phony lawyer to help clients with their immigration status among other legal matters.
A prospect of a public trial likely pushed the Muslim ‘rights’ organization to quietly settle the case in favor of the victims and their attorneys.
CAIR Settles with Fraud Victims After Two Adverse Court Decisions
Washington, D.C. (June 4, 2019) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has settled a case originally filed 11 years ago in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The lawsuit against CAIR was brought by the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) on behalf of five victims of a massive fraud perpetrated by a CAIR lawyer, Morris Days.
CAIR’s decision to finally settle the case came only after two very adverse court decisions. The first decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia reversed an earlier dismissal of the lawsuit brought by AFLC Co-Founders and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi and Robert J. Muise. The Court of Appeals’ decision, the second appeal in this long-standing case that had included allegations of criminal racketeering by CAIR, mandated that the federal district court permit the case to go to a jury trial, set for September 2019.
The second court decision was by the trial court which refused to dismiss the consumer fraud statute count, which meant that AFLC’s clients would receive attorney’s fees irrespective of the amount the jury awarded as long as the jury found CAIR liable. Given the aggressively fought litigation over the past decade, CAIR was looking at a possible judgment approaching one million dollars just for attorney’s fees.
It is thus no surprise that at a mediation conducted in the U.S. District Court in D.C. by U.S. Magistrate Judge G. Michael Harvey in late May, CAIR agreed to a settlement. As is often the case, the terms and conditions of the settlement agreement are confidential, but the plaintiffs’ lead lawyer, David Yerushalmi, remarked:
“Our clients are extremely happy with the settlement and, in fact, they are so happy, they have authorized me to declare publicly that they have no problem disclosing all of the terms and conditions of the settlement agreement if CAIR agrees. It is unlikely CAIR would agree, of course, because it is unlikely CAIR wants the public to learn the terms of the settlement.”
The lawsuit began after CAIR hired for its Virginia offices a fake lawyer, Morris Days, who defrauded dozens if not hundreds of CAIR clients. Once the fraud began to unravel, CAIR engaged in a massive cover-up, closing down the Virginia offices, firing the lawyer, and claiming to the CAIR victims that Days was not actually a CAIR lawyer. As alleged, CAIR knew of this fraud and purposefully conspired with Days to keep the CAIR clients from discovering that their legal matters were being mishandled or not handled at all.
This is the kind of news you need to get around to your social networks (assuming you haven’t been given the boot from facebook and twitter yet!) because otherwise this good news favoring the little guy will be lost.
It has happened every year since 2001 when the UN declared June 20th ‘World Refugee Day‘—an opportunity to build a media/fund raising message around this arbitrary day!
The Left knows how to make proclamations about events like this one as a way to build a media campaign and to raise money for whatever the cause. (Why don’t conservatives do that sort of thing?)
Watch for cultural events popping up near where you live and fluffy media accounts of the joys of multiculturalism.
HIAS, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society,is getting a jump on the big day which is still a few weeks off with a letter to followers from CEO Mark Hetfield looking for money.
Editor: A reader asked that I place a link to the White House contact form on the front page here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’ See it in the right hand sidebar. Click on the image of the White House to access the contact form. This post might be one worth mentioning to the Prez because once again, HIAS gets millions from the federal government (from us!) while it criticizes the President we elected.
I think some of you in refugee overloaded states might like this news!
And, native New Yorkers might see this as a great time to pack up and head south for lower taxes and more pleasant weather (many have already!).
The State of New York is actively luring refugees from other states and officials there claim cities are dying and they need low wage workers (and more ethnic groceries and craft shops!) to stop the slow bleed from their decrepit cities.
And, who is going to pay for all of the ‘services’ New York state is offering refugees to move there (called secondary migration in the refugee industry).
No one has ever given me a good argument for why certain struggling cities can’t just be left to die!
Although the story makes it sound like the refugee industry has brought refugees to put on display in Washington as a response to the Trump Administration refugee slowdown, in reality they do this lobbying PR event every year no matter who is in the White House.
The lobbying initiative brings in (probably at your expense since these agencies are largely taxpayer-funded) refugees who exemplify the best of the recent crop of Africans, Asians and Middle Easterners to help persuade Congress to fund even more refugees in the coming fiscal year.
Needless to say there is NEVER any counter effort at this time by immigration restriction groups who might get around the Hill with information about the cost of the program and to put out a few horror stories about refugees who came here fraudulently and became crooks and criminals.
And, NO ONE ever mentions that the religious charities are largely federally funded and dependent on a large and regular supply of ‘new Americans’ to pay their salaries and their office overhead (so they can promote their Open Borders political agenda).
