Fraud Uncovered in Special Refugee Admissions Program for Iraqis

“The criminal case has exposed staggering gaps in security at Homeland Security’s legal immigration agency.”

(Reporter Stephen Dinan)

This is a followup to a post I wrote at RRW a few weeks ago.

Biden Admin Halts Special Refugee Program for Iraqis Due to Fraud Bust

Even as refugee resettlement contractors*** say it isn’t so, and attempt to silence us by getting us listed as hate groups at the Southern Poverty Law Center  (more to say on this later) for daring to raise the issue of national security breaches and fraudulent activity that surrounds refugee admissions from the Middle East, they can’t hide the truth.

The US Refugee Admissions program is filled with fraud! Here is more proof that you have no idea who your ‘new American’ neighbors are!

From the Washington Times (hat tip: Anne):

‘Sophisticated insider threat’ at DHS immigration agency forces pause to Iraqi refugee program

Ali had been anxiously eyeing the first days of the Biden administration, counting on the president’s promises of a new era in immigration to clear hurdles and help him get the visa he’s been seeking for years, as a reward for helping the U.S. war effort in Iraq.

But two days into the new administration, those hopes were dashed when the State Department announced an emergency pause on the special Iraqi refugee program.

Prosecutors had just revealed an almost unthinkable internal security breach: Two Homeland Security employees had been selling secret files from the Iraqi program for years, leaving security experts to figure out the damage, and the State Department to try to cauterize the wound.

The scam also left those like Ali — a pseudonym The Washington Times is using to protect his identity — worried about what bad guys might now know about him.

“I was literally counting the days of Trump’s presidency term and wishing Biden wins the election to resume the program so we can finally get our freedom and restore our normal life,” Ali told The Times in an email. “Now with this news I receive another shock to be added to my life’s tragedy.”

The criminal case has exposed staggering gaps in security at Homeland Security’s legal immigration agency, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The fraud is similar to asylum fraud we have reported in the past at RRW where lawyers create a ‘sob story’ that is used with variations to get an applicant through the process.

NYT: “Asylum Fraud in Chinatown: Industry of Lies”

Sources told The Times the goal was not, as Ali feared, to glean information that could be used to exact retribution against those who helped the U.S. Instead, the scammers were trying to exploit America’s generosity to pave a path for undeserving people.

Having access to the case files from successful applications gave the fraudsters a template to help others craft their own applications, cutting out information that had sunk others and highlighting the factors that had worked in previous cases.

“These guys were seeing applications and write-ups of those who were successfully able to establish eligibility, and basically take those narratives and repurpose them for others,” said Rob Law, the past chief of policy at USCIS.

“People adopt similar stories, once someone is found to successfully navigate the system.”

Robert Law at CIS https://cis.org/Law

Top Republicans on the House’s Homeland Security and Foreign Affairs committees have demanded secret briefings on what went wrong, calling it a “sophisticated insider threat.”

[….]

Mr. Law, now director of regulatory affairs and policy at the Center for Immigration Studies, said he expects more revelations about the extent of the fraud.

“What’s being currently reported as being uncovered is potentially just the beginning,” he said.

He also said the scam should be a caution to the Biden administration as it seeks to unwind former President Donald Trump’s strict vetting of refugees and other foreign arrivals.

There is more, continue reading here.

I have an extensive archive at RRW on the special immigrant visa program for Iraq and Afghanistan (a Ted Kennedy gift to America).  To learn more go here.

 

***For Readers unfamiliar with the US Refugee Admissions Program these are the nine federal refugee contractors who worked to put Biden and Harris in the White House and are lobbying for millions of illegal aliens to be transformed into legal voting citizens, as well as raising the refugee admissions ceiling from 15,000 this year to 125,000.

These nine contractors are largely responsible for choosing where to place special immigrant visa holders from Iraq and Afghanistan. During the Trump years regular refugee numbers were low, especially from Muslim countries. However, the SIVs coming in afforded the contractors paying work as their numbers did not decline at least in the early years of the Trump administration.

These nine fake charities (really quasi-government agencies) are paid by you, the taxpayer, for their work of changing America by changing the people, and in so doing, are putting Americans last!

And, to add insult to injury, the CONTRACTORS are jumping for joy because Biden has promised to get rid of Trump’s extreme vetting.

 

Expanding Refugee Resettlement is Least Favorite of Biden Executive Orders (so far)

And, five of the seven least favorite involve immigration, proving once again that Trump was always on the right track when he attempted to slow immigration, but for some unexplained reason he steered clear of the issue in the 2020 race.

From Morning Consult:

Biden’s Move to Expand Refugee Admissions Is His Most Unpopular Executive Action So Far

48% of voters oppose the president’s plan to allow 125,000 refugees into the country in the upcoming fiscal year, while 39% support it.

Five of the seven least popular actions pertain to immigration and immigrant rights.

You can bet the pro-open borders biased media is going to bury this news!

To see the chart more clearly go to Morning Consult.

 

See my post yesterday at RRW where I explain that refugee numbers will be exploding in the coming year and it will depend on you and local organizing if you have any hope of saving your community from massive social, cultural and economic upheaval.

Pinned Post: Personal Story From a Reader Reminds Me! It is now up to YOU!

Let me be clear!  Most Republicans in the House and Senate will not help you! Republican governors have already proven that they too have no spine.

They want more refugees for their business buddies at the Chamber of Commerce.  Refugees work for lower wages and they buy stuff—like used cars!

So they don’t care what you think!

BLM/Antifa March Through Biden’s DC Last Night; Harass Diners; Get Violent with Police

But, wait just a minute, weren’t these angry riots supposed to end once “Orange man” was gone from the White House?  Wasn’t America going to be the land of peace and love once Donald Trump was given the boot via a stolen election.

What! No respect for Biden’s America! 

And, where is the National Guard, busy acting as personal body guards for Pelosi and Schumer at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue?

When I saw this news on Gateway Pundit, I immediately checked to see if any mainstream media was reporting on the latest BLM/Antifa agitation.  Didn’t see a thing!

“Burn it Down!” – BLM-Antifa Terrorists March Through DC, Assault Police Officers, Harass Outdoor Diners (VIDEO)

 

It’s an inssurection!
This is Biden’s America.

Antifa terrorists marched through Washington DC Saturday night chanting, “Burn it down!”

They want to burn down the city completely controlled by Socialist Democrats?

Go to Gateway Pundit to see the video’s on Twitter.  Since Twitter has blocked my access, I can’t get the links to embed those videos.

Actually now that Twitter has banned Gateway Pundit, I expect they won’t be able to get the links either.

I am on Gab, but haven’t figured out how to link Gabs into my blogs yet.  Alas, too many new things to learn.

 

Endnote:  You might want to visit RRW today where I spent my limited posting time trying to educate readers about a Trump refugee policy that Breitbart seemed to misunderstand.

I explained that when Trump attempted to reform the Refugee placement process to give state and local governments some say-so in placement, it was mostly the REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS WHO DID NOT BACK TRUMP that went a long way to sink the policy.

Just so you know, the latest Republican darling, SD Governor Kristi Noem, was one of 18 Rs who did not back Trump’s reform effort.

Trump Initiative to Give State and Local Government a Say in Refugee Resettlement was DEAD Before Biden EO

RRW: Biden Makes the Announcement, will Raise Refugee Ceiling to 125,000 in Coming Year

And he did that as we learned that the refugees we admitted in recent years are suffering due to joblessness, evictions, and hunger.

America Last!

The number Chairman Joe is proposing is way beyond anything Obama ever did.

Frankly, it is insanity as so many Americans are suffering due to the China virus lockdown that we are going to bring in a number of refugees not seen in nearly 30 years.

My RRW posts of the last few days could just as easily have been posted here at Frauds and Crooks.

Biden Says He Will Raise Refugee Ceiling “Back Up” to 125,000 as Americans Suffer Joblessness from Chinese Virus Lockdown

And, just yesterday as well: Refugee gang-raped in slum neighborhood in Columbus, Ohio.

Visit RRW from time to time.  I will be busy there.
