“Will a single American elected official please stand up and challenge the continued public funding of this subversive religious racket?”
Refugee Resettlement Watchmay be down temporarily, but thankfully patriots with bigger megaphones have taken up the call to educate Americans about the supposedly ‘religious’ charities that live off of us—taxpayers—in order to promote an Open Borders agenda.
Thanks to reader Richardfor tipping me off to Michelle Malkin’s recent column about Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service‘s leading role as an anti-Trump community agitation group (while they collect millions in federal grants and contracts from the Trump Administration)!
Surely you’ve heard that, as Amazon launches its Prime Day sales, disgruntled warehouse workers in places like Minnesota, where large numbers of Somalis are employed, have organized a strike.
Remember readers that it isn’t just the ‘humanitarians’ pushing for Open Borders and more migration but it is BIG businesses, like Amazon owned by uber-wealthy Leftists likeJeff Bezos (who also owns the Washington Post), who are hurting American workers by driving the more-immigration debate.
Just so you know who is supporting those strikes, here is a bit from an opinion piece at NBC News:
“Their campaign has been boosted by politicians — including Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., a Somali American and the first Muslim woman in Congress, as well as Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. — who see Amazon’s empire as emblematic of the country’s abysmal inequality. But the Shakopee workers draw most of their support from the grassroots, organizing with the immigrant advocacy group Awood Center with support from theMinnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Service Employees International Union.”
If you haven’t gotten enthused about the 2020 Elections, its time you do because imagine if any of this bunch comes into control of the White House.
And, by the way, the more they squabble among themselves on the political Left the better! So help them squabble whenever and wherever you can!
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.
When I saw the story yesterday I realized I know this guy!
I wrote about him over a year ago being arrested with CAIR’s Nihad Awad and Linda Sarsour at a Capitol Hill demonstration sponsored by our old pals at the refugee contractorChurch World Service(which I happened to write about yesterday before I saw the hubbub about Omar Suleiman!).
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.
