That headline is not exactly correct! You, the American taxpayers, pay for Day Care training so refugees who have been in the country for less than five years can have “culturally appropriate” child care, and get paid to stay home with their own kids and a few others.
I’ve written about this grant program provided by the federal Office of Refugee Resettlementover the years (see one 2015 storyat RRW), but a story from Iowa (hat tip: Joanne) reminds me I should tell new readers about it especially in light of news I’ve posted here since January about how just this type of taxpayer-funded day care leads to fraud.
In one case, the day care provider paid other families to pretend to drop off kids and then the provider submitted for payment an inflated number of attendees.
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).
Several people sent me this storyfrom The Atlantic about a new computer program that is being tested by the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Societyto determine which American town or city could be the most hospitable to a third worlder arriving in the US.
I’m posting it just so you know about it and especially for those of you who came over from Refugee Resettlement Watch and have told me you miss news about refugees.
Before I give you a few snips from the story, you need to know that at present the nine federal resettlement contractors meet on a regular basis in the Washington, DC area and divide up the incoming cases. One long-time observer refers to the process as “bidding for bodies.”
I would love to be a fly on the wall watching the process because, at the present time, the Trump Administration has drastically reduced the incoming refugee flow and so I suspect there is some squabbling among the ‘humanitarian’ agencies for those few paying customers. (For newbies, refugee contractors are paid by the feds on a per refugee head basis.)
So why not a federal grant for all victims of crime?
I know this isn’t the most interesting news you will read today, but it is again an example of how the federal government plays favorites as it spends your money, and thus is a topic of interest to me!
And, for those of you who followed Refugee Resettlement Watch this is one more case where the federal refugee contractors, which live off of your tax dollars, are still being funded even as the numbers of incoming refugees have dropped under President Trump.
This post isn’t going to be one of those juicy crime stories I enjoy writing (and you enjoy reading!), but this news is worth your time and consideration.
It is a story about the Left eating its own….
Perhaps one of the most important and consistent themes in my writing since I first became aware of the refugee program and immigration issues generally has been my focus on fake non-profit groups with increasing (often ruthless) political power disguised under what I call a “white hat of humanitarianism.”
I call them fake because the they don’t have enough private charitable support, but get their financial (and thus political!) power by using our money—the US taxpayers’ money!
They use OUR money to promote their extreme Leftwing political agenda!
Just a few days ago, I told you again about David Miliband, the CEO of the financially largest of the government-funded resettlement contractors bashing the President while he is paid over $800,000 a year as a non-profit CEO!
What does he do that is more valuable to us than the President, the VEEP, US Senators or Supreme Court Justices who make only a fraction of what he does!
So, therefore this is kind of a fun story as the Leftists attack each other in Oregon.
