Alma, Michigan Citizens Organize to Oppose Home for UACs in Their Community

Editor:  I am posting this story here and at RRW today because it supports my recent harangue that you must get to work locally!  There is no one coming to your rescue as the Open Borders agitators expand their reach into towns large and small across the country.

They are working day and night to change America by changing the people!

The only hope you have now is to fight against the Progressive Left where you live!  Local elected officials can still be moved through public pressure.  There really is no hope at the state or federal level right now. 

Alma has a population of about 10,000! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alma%2C_Michigan

Here is a brief report of what is happening in Alma, Michigan where a federal resettlement subcontractor is planning to open a “home” for Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) who are not refugees, but have recently invaded the southern border.

See data: mostly teenaged males! And, don’t you dare use the word “alien” says the Biden Administration.

These local citizens speaking up against the plan are doing what you should be doing where you live because I will bet the ‘religious’ Leftwingers are a step ahead of you and have either begun moving ‘new Americans’ to your community or have you in their sites.

From the Epoch Times:

Resettlement of Unaccompanied Minors Divides Michigan Town

ALMA, Mich.—A proposal to open a 36-bed residential resettlement facility for illegal alien teenagers in a small central Michigan city has ignited a firestorm of opposition from its citizens.

An estimated 400 people attended the City of Alma Planning Commission’s July 12 public hearing to voice their opinions on the issue. The planning commission is expected to make a recommendation to the city commission on Aug. 4 on whether to approve a request for the conditional rezoning of a recently closed nursing home facility owned by Michigan Masonic Home—also known as Masonic Pathways—a fraternal philanthropic nonprofit organization.

Bethany Christian Services, a nonprofit corporation based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that would operate the facility, has signed a letter of intent to lease the 6.1-acre property for an annual rent of $385,440, for the purpose of running what it calls “a small group shelter for the short-term care of low-risk youth from 12 to 17 years of age.” Bethany’s goal is to connect the youths with relatives or place them in foster homes.

The Alma shelter, and other such arrangements across Michigan and beyond, are part of the Biden administration’s effort to disseminate the thousands of migrants surging across the United States’ southern border and throughout the interior of the country, and place them in what it calls “influx sites.”

During the month of March, more than 19,000 unaccompanied minors were taken into custody at the southern border by Border Patrol, the largest monthly number in U.S. history.

Bethany Christian Services (subcontractor of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service*** located in Baltimore, MD) says it doesn’t cost Michigan anything because the feds are footing the bill.  Well, obviously the federal money is our money!

Moving them in secrecy!

Media organizations operating in Texas have reported for weeks that unaccompanied children taken into custody at the U.S.–Mexico border are being flown on U.S. military or other government-supplied airplanes to undisclosed destinations. The locations aren’t being divulged out of “concern for the safety of the children,” one federal official said.

At the public hearing in Alma, a spokesperson for Bethany Christian Services explained how the process is paid for, saying: “Everything is fully funded by the U.S. government.

“This program doesn’t cost the state of Michigan anything.

Bethany plays the Christian card….

“Bethany’s mission is to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus by protecting children. It is a moral issue.”

Audience member Dr. Jeff Smith, who strongly opposes the proposed resettlement center in Alma, appeared to take offense at the claim that the issue is a moral one.

“Don’t lecture me about what’s morally right,” he said. “I went to these countries on medical mission trips. I’m not going to be told I am morally bad by people who stand to make millions.”

There is more here.

Here is more information that shows that the citizens of Alma are doing their homework!

Just so you know, you may see less of me because I plan to spend more time taking my own advice!

What do we do now? Fight Back Locally!

Jan 6 Protester Faces 20-Years In Prison For Standing In Capitol For 10 Minutes – Wife Launches GiveSendGo

After stealing the 2020 election, the Biden regime, the Democrat Party and their agitprop media continue to exploit the events of January 6 to warrant a manhunt on Trump supporters.

Branded “white supremacists” and “domestic terrorists,” scores of Americans who protested the fraudulent election in Washington DC have since been arrested in pre-dawn raids and hauled off to jail.

Joseph Hackett, a 50-year-old chiropractor, now faces a 20-year sentence in federal prison after “heinously” stepping in the Capitol Building for approximately ten minutes on Jan. 6.

According to court documents, prosecutors claim Hackett allegedly walked into the Capitol Rotunda towards the House of Representatives on Jan. 6 at 2:45 pm. He then left the Capitol at 2:54 pm.

After the protest, he safely returned home to Sarasota, Florida. But, the ten minutes he allegedly spent in the Capitol building would come back to haunt him months later.

Keep reading to hear the whole story!

He has been in jail since May!!!

There isn’t much we can do, but we can pray for those wrongly accused, and help them financially.

Joseph’s wife Deena launched a crowdfunding GiveSendGo campaign last week in hopes of being able to hire a private attorney to represent her husband.  Please help if you can.

 

Please pass this along to your patriot friends!  And, help them get the best lawyer money can buy!

Group Organizing Another Demonstration for January 6th Political Prisoners

A couple of friends sent me this news about a rally on Saturday in Washington, DC to protest the incarceration of many arrested on January 6th, some of whom are in solitary confinement and many without even having charges filed against them.

It is such a relief to see that some patriots are taking action to protest this shameful act of political persecution.

I have no time to go into the details because I want to get over to RRW before I run out of steam today.  (Been out early slaving in the north 40, so to speak.)

Learn more about it here and see that there are satellite rallies being held elsewhere in the country as well.  Note that the Arizona rally is tomorrow.

White House Audacity! It is Republicans Who Want to Defund the Police!

For the last week or so, the Dems have been (hilariously!) beating a drum trying to flip the narrative and blame the Republicans for defunding the police as they eye the 2022 midterm elections while rising crime has voters nervous.

But, it isn’t so funny when you see the White House is in on the action and literally repeating that Big Lie.

Do they think we are stupid, that we didn’t watch BLM and Antifa demanding the police be defunded for the last year with Democrat weaklings parroting their Commie agitator friends and taking their hefty campaign donations.

Look at all these rowdy Republicans!

And how about this little nugget….

Here is the news about the White House scrambling to point a finger at Republicans….

From NBC News which is working really, really hard to help ol’ Joe distance himself from his pals—BLM and Antifa.

White House: Actually, Republicans are trying to defund the police

WASHINGTON — The White House is responding to relentless Republican charges that it wants to “defund the police” by embracing the message that there are, in fact, politicians angling to starve law enforcement of needed money: congressional Republicans.

The White House launched the counteroffensive as advisers push to shore up President Joe Biden’s low approval on crime*** and fight an attack that could damage Democrats in the midterm elections next year.

Congressional Democrats are amplifying the push, highlighting their support for bills that would boost money for policing. They cite Republican opposition to the measures, along with the party’s lack of interest in investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, which left a police officer dead and many more injured, to claim that Republicans aren’t the party of law enforcement.

[….]

“The president, with the backing of leading law enforcement groups, secured the money that his predecessor opposed — to keep cops on the beat — and every single Republican member of Congress voted against it,” White House spokesman Andrew Bates said. “The GOP continues to oppose the American Rescue Plan even as it delivers the rehiring of police in their districts.”

Republicans are seizing on rising concerns about crime to try to recapture control of Congress next year. Biden is vulnerable on the issue — a new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that 38 percent approve of his handling of crime, while 48 percent disapprove and 14 percent have no opinion.

USA Today/Ipsos poll released in March found that just 18 percent of Americans supported the “defund the police” movement.

In an op-ed Monday for Fox News, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, slammed the White House’s argument as “gaslighting,” calling it a “desperate ploy to escape blame for rising crime rates.”

There is more here.

The Socialists/Communists (with their friends in the fake news media) are really good at this—they just keep repeating a lie and eventually everyone believes it.

It won’t work this time because unfortunately for them for over a year we all watched who was attacking law enforcement both physically and financially and it wasn’t America First Republicans.

 

***More evidence Biden is in deep doo-doo….

As Crime Rises, Biden’s Approval Numbers Drop

Harris/Biden Open Door Immigration Policy Could Sink Dems

“The voters see the border as a growing problem and blame the Biden administration policies…. “This is the administration’s greatest weakness right now.”

(Democrat pollster Mark Penn)

A poll (and you know most of these polls skew to the Left) demonstrates that the new Administration is in deep doo-doo and the alarm bells are ringing.

So, the message to you is to keep spreading the news and howling  about the invasion at our southern border (along with all the other efforts the White House is making to change America by changing the people).

For instance if you don’t read my other blog, Refugee Resettlement Watch, you may not know that we are only a little over three months away from opening the sluice gates to 125,000 ‘refugees’ from the Middle East, Africa and Asia, on top of the border crashers.

The Hill:

Majority of voters say Biden should implement stricter immigration policies: poll

A majority of voters in a new poll say that President Biden should implement stricter immigration policies to limit the number of people illegally entering the country.

Sixty-four percent of registered voters in a new Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey released exclusively to The Hill said Biden should “issue new, stricter policies to reduce the flow of people across the border.” Meanwhile, 36 percent said the administration should continue its current policies.

Apparently Kamala’s trip to Central America in search of root causes did not satisfy voters on either side of the aisle. To get 64% saying they want stricter immigration policies means that a fairly large chunk of Biden’s (Ha-Ha) 81 million voters are unhappy.  Kamala 2024 (NOT!)

The question comes as the White House continues to deal with a high number of migrants looking to cross the southern border while rolling back policies that were implemented by former President Trump.

While Biden has not yet put forth a comprehensive immigration platform as he focuses on infrastructure and combating the coronavirus, the president has revoked Trump’s policy that barred immigrants from obtaining visas unless they proved they could obtain health insurance or pay for health care, scrapped the travel ban targeting Muslim-majority nations and upheld the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, among other things.

Putting Covid and infrastructure as top priorities right out of the gate (probably figuring two easy wins), while allowing the border to completely spin out of control, the Harris/Biden team may have fatally miscalculated!

Biden this month also formally nixed the “Remain in Mexico” program, which forced asylum-seekers to stay in Mexico while awaiting the result of their case in U.S. immigration court. The Department of Homeland Security also officially banned family separations for prosecutions of illegal border crossings, another reversal of Trump’s policies.

[….]

Those moves have led to praise from Democrats who say the White House is taking a more humane approach to immigration, while Republicans have howled that Biden is making the border less safe.  [Yup, howling is what we must continue doing.—ed]

Voters say Biden should have left in place the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

Fifty-five percent of voters said the previous administration’s policies should have been kept, while 45 percent say they should have been undone.

Mark Penn was a chief strategist for Hillary in 2008. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Penn

LOL! I figure that the reason 55% said Trump policies should have been left in place is because that is likely the margin who voted for Trump to continue in the White House!

Have you noticed that the Administration and the Dems are not out and about bragging about their historic 81 million votes?

But, I digress, back to The Hill.

Overall, 67 percent of voter say that people who cross the southern border illegally should be sent back to Mexico, while a third say they should be released into the U.S. with a court date.

A number to remember to tell your friends—200,000 a month crossing the border illegally!

“The voters see the border as a growing problem and blame the Biden administration policies. The voters vastly underestimate the size of the problem and so once they learn it’s nearly 200,000 a month making illegal crossing their temperatures rise on this issue,” said pollster Mark Penn. “This is the administration’s greatest weakness right now.”

Fight back! Spread the word!
