This is actually an update of news from Tennessee that I posted at Refugee Resettlement Watch in May with updates in June about the controversial night-flight of Unaccompanied Alien Children (mostly teenagers!) to Chattanooga, Tennessee.
So many posts I write at RRWcould just as easily be posted here at ‘Frauds and Crooks!’
Tennessee suspends shelter license following staffer arrest
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Tennessee officials on Thursday suspended the license of a Chattanooga shelter for immigrant children after one of the employees was arrested following abuse allegations.
The move comes as Tennessee’s top Republican leaders have called for more scrutiny surrounding the shelter. They allege the federal government has not been transparent when pressed about immigrant children moving through the state.
That rhetoric only intensified after Department of Children’s Services Commissioner Jennifer Nichols told lawmakers that in early June during an unannounced inspection of a Chattanooga shelter, a young boy reported he had witnessed “an act that, in our policy, would substantiate and require an investigation” while at the facility.
In a news release, Nichols on Thursday cited the abuse allegation and other issues that had plagued the shelter over the past month as reasons for the suspension.
According to the suspension summary, the department was alerted on June 15 that a 16-year-old boy had “absconded” from the shelter.
A week later, the department was told all the youth had been moved from the facility. On Wednesday, the Chattanooga Police Department announced that a staff member had been arrested and faced criminal charges.
Police officials say 35-year-old Randi Duarte faces charges of sexual battery by an authority figure, coercion of a witness and tampering with evidence. Police received a complaint in late May and worked with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Homeland Security and the Hamilton County District Attorney’s office to investigate the allegation.
The list is long, but the one that caught my interest was HIAS (formerly the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society)and one of nine federal refugee contractors I have been writing about for going on 14 years.
Of those nine (below), HIAS hustlers have been the most political, by far, of the contractors and its head honcho, Mark Hetfield, was out front for four years working to defeat Donald Trump with rallies in the streets and cases in the courts all the while sucking up millions of your tax dollars.
Bezos’ Ex-Wife MacKenzie Scott Donates $2.7B to Fund HIAS, Open Borders Lobby, Pro-Censorship Groups, Racial Justice NGOs
MacKenzie Scott, who received $38 billion from her divorce with Jeff Bezos, is giving leftist NGOs, the open borders lobby and “racial justice” agitators their greatest windfall in history.
Scott on Tuesday released a list of 286 groups she’s giving another $2.7 billion in divorce money to on her blog.
The first which stands out is HIAS, formerly known as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, which works to resettle refugees through America.
They didn’t say how much her donation was but the head of the group [Hetfield] said it “would enable the group to become an emergency responder to refugee crises around the world in addition to a resettlement agency,” eJewishPhilanthropy reported.
HIAS’s latest financial report for 2019 says they had $80 million in total assets and $55 million in net assets.
I’m assuming they probably got a lot more than the $7 million she gave to Repair The World as they’re now planning to go global.
Another notable group on the list is Muslim Advocates, which is basically just a Muslim copy of the Anti-Defamation League that lobbies for internet censorship, mass immigration and hate speech laws.
The top of their website says how they’re suing Facebook for not censoring enough.
When I first started examining tax documents for non-profits, this information was on page one, but at some point it was moved to page 9 presumably to deter nosey taxpayers from finding it.
And here, check out the six-figure salaries the top execs are making.
I call it doing well by doing good. Think about how some staffer for HIAS is making more than a US Senator, Congressman or Supreme Court Justice!
By the way, if you think it is not kosher of me to post salaries I would agree if the business entity was truly a private one, but these government contractors are spending our money so I figure it is fair game.
To learn more about HIAS, check out my extensive archiveat Refugee Resettlement Watch. To be fair, you should know that some of the refugee contractors get many millions more of payola from the feds than does HIAS.
Below are the nine federal refugee contractors that monopolize all resettlement of third world refugees to your towns and cities. They will soon be awash in your money as Harris/Biden say they will admit 125,000 refugees from Africa, Asia and the Middle East to the US beginning on October first.
The contractors are paid on a per refugee head basis and to a large degree determine which towns and cities will be new resettlement targets.
I was over at Refugee Resettlement Watchyesterday reporting this news which could just as easily have been posted here. Have you noticed! There is a lot of crossover between the US Refugee Admissions Program and our theme here—frauds and crooks!
Saying that the US must “solve the global refugee crisis” is meaningless pabulum. It will never be solved as third world countries send their excess people off to America and America says sure come on in, we can take care of everyone.
And, then one day, we too will be the third world.
I don’t know if you have been following the controversy about Biden’s flip-flopping on how many refugees he is welcoming to your towns. I’ve been writing about it for days at Refugee Resettlement Watch where it was a clear demonstration of the power the refugee resettlement contractors have over this President.
Our side, the side that believes in America First! and says that America cannot take care of the world with growing factions of ethnic groups that don’t plan on assimilating in cities that are powder kegs, has no organized opposition to the US Refugee Admissions Program. None!
Yes, there are some immigration control groups working in Washington, DC, but they are either think tank types, or are focused on the illegal alien crisis at the southern border.
Last week, the refugee contractors and their many cohorts in the refugee industry were able to gin-up opposition in a matter of hours when Biden really screwed-up by setting the refugee level for this year at the exact level that the “racist” Donald Trump had left it.
And, that is when the wailing began….
One of the major leaders of ‘bring in the third world’ is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) and it was their CEO Mark Hetfield who made that comment about America’s duty to lead in solving the global refugee crisis quoted in a report at their blog.
HIAS’s blog post chronicles what they did on Friday along with the others in the refugee industry lobby to slap Biden silly and to remind him not to wander off the ranch again.
What a Dramatic Day in Resettlement Means for Refugees
April 16 was a tumultuous day for refugee resettlement in the United States.
Early that day, President Biden delivered a long-awaited announcement. It was bad news: he would keep this year’s refugee admissions cap at 15,000, the all-time low number set by the Trump administration. While he ordered the end of discriminatory quotas on refugees from certain countries, Biden broke his repeated promises to significantly raise the admissions cap, setting off an avalanche of criticism from politicians, religious leaders, refugee advocates, and the public. By the end of the day, the administration had dramatically reversed course, pledging to raise the cap after all.
“HIAS is relieved that the Biden administration finally got its refugee initiatives back on track,” said HIAS President and CEO Mark Hetfield. “Doing the right thing takes courage. It will take courage for America to lead by the power of our example in solving the global refugee crisis.”
It’s a handy summary of what happened in recent months and how their massive network of activists went to work on Friday to tell the administration to jump. Jump it did! They also call upon their people to continue pressuring Chairman Joe to keep the third world moving in—to your neighborhoods.
It was virtual this time (normally they fly refugees in to show the warm and fuzzy side of refugee resettlement), but it basically follows a pattern they have developed over the years—upstanding refugees tell their “stories” to members of Congress to guilt-trip them into pushing for ever greater numbers of refugees to add to the millions we have already moved from Africa, Asia and the Middle East to almost all 50 states.
And, please Congress give us more MONEY!
Refugee Council USA (RCUSA), its members, and our partners convene to host a special refugee virtual advocacy week from Monday, April 19 to Friday, April 23, 2021. This virtual week of action and training comes at an important point for the refugee resettlement program. After four years of orders and policy that sought to dismantle the program, we now have the opportunity to rebuild stronger than ever – but we need your help. This week, we ask our community members to join us in championing pro-refugee legislation, and the funding and oversight to make it happen.
We are looking for residents of key states and cities whose representatives can make a big difference in rebuilding the refugee resettlement program…
They don’t have enough refugees to show off, so all activists are welcome….
You can be a seasoned advocate, or hoping to get involved for the first time! RCUSA will be providing a series of trainings, discussions, and materials so each participant feels confident. RCUSA will handle setting up meetings, participants just need to bring their passion and personal stories.
They have targeted some of their obvious friends, maybe just to keep them in line. But, some others strike me as unusual choices. They are targeting Lauren Boebert, Matt Gaetz, Madison Cawthorn, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Louie Gohmert and Jim Jordan among others.
In the Senate they have listed John Kennedy, Rand Paul, Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz and Marsha Blackburn.
I am assuming these choices are just to give them a guilt-trip.
Perhaps of most interest to me is that they have listed both Republican Senators and Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming even as Wyoming has NO refugee program and never has. It is the only state in the nation that has never ‘welcomed’ refugees.
Bottomline, America Firsters have no such organized structure to do what they have done year after year to pressure Congress to do their bidding and welcome in millions of (impoverished) New American Democrat voters (at taxpayers expense!) as the great replacementchugs along.

If you are not a regular reader of RRW you might not know that you are paying millions to two supposed ‘religious’ charities which are helping spread illegal migrants from the southern border throughout America.
