Yesterdaywe learnedthat the Southern Poverty Law Center could (fingers crossed!) implode and now The New York Times(The New York Times!) reports on the deep dark secret about travel loans to refugees that you pay for with your tax dollars.
I first heard about the travel loans in 2007 and wrote about them from time to time at Refugee Resettlement Watch, but I don’t recall any major publication saying much about them and certainly not with a questioning tone about how the nine federal ‘non-profit’ refugee contractors benefit from collecting the loans.
For many of you it’s bad enough that we give no-interest loans and that a large number are never repaid, but for me the scam has always been that the contractors (six are supposedly ‘religious’ charities) benefit financially from the deal.
The gist of the argument, for those of us not steeped in the law, asks the question: does the federal government have the right to dump budgetary costs on a particular state’s taxpayers by its decisions in Washington to place refugees in states that have already said they do not want to participate in the US Refugee Admissions Program?
Frankly, many of us who want to see the US Refugee Program dumped or reformed had high hopes for a political solution via the Trump Administration and a Republican Congress, but Trump went no further than temporarily reducing the numbers. And, Republicans under the leadership of Paul Ryan clearly had no stomach for dealing with this tough issue.
Now we will see if the courts will force this critical reform.
I’ve only said this about a million times (exaggerating of course!): To be a legitimate refugee one must claim that he or she would be persecuted for one of several reasons if the refugee claimant should return (or be forced to return) to his or her home country.
The wannabe refugee makes that claim and is then processed by the UN which arranges resettlement to a third country!
Imagine my surprise to see this news that gives me the rare opportunity to praise the United Nations!
One of the good things about this new blog is that I can still bring you stories about refugees while enjoying a much broader choice of news across a wide spectrum of involving frauds, crooks and criminals.
This news, meant to tug on your heartstrings (the Left is good at that!), points to an area of the US Refugee Admissions Program that should make your head explode!
But, before you read it remember: Don’t blame these poor old souls we yanked out of Africa and out of their culture, blame the Open Borders agitators and lobbyists in the refugee industry always on the hunt to import more poverty to America.
Although many of the volunteers on the ground just want to do good by the the refugees, the leadership of the industry headed by Socialists/Marxists! wants to import poverty as a way to reshape America.
If it makes no sense to you that anyone would advocate overloading our welfare system, read about theCloward and Piven strategywhen you have a few extra minutes.
Once again I have made the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hate Group List.
For a couple of years I made a joke of it. But, it isn’t funny when they put a target on a writer with whom they disagree with the obvious goal of silencing her—that would be me!
My first inclination was to ignore them this year so that I don’t put my safety in jeopardy, but no, what the heck, here goes….
Frankly, I thought by now their ‘researchers’ would have read my work at Refugee Resettlement Watchand learned that RRW is NOT a group. It is/was a publication to report my research and voice my opinions.
And, to further demonstrate their careless ‘investigation’, RRW is not even an active blog any longer.
Merriam-Websters Dictionarydefinesa group as follows:
two or more figures forming a complete unit in a composition
The word “two” is the operative word. There is only one person in this ‘group’ and that is me! I write my blogs alone and am paid by no one!
My hate crime (defined by the SPLC) as a writer at RRW was to research and write (for over ten years) about the US Refugee Admissions Program with a goal of seeing the program reformed, but in doing so I obviously angered powerful friends of the SPLC and thus became a target.
So the SPLC’s sloppy work leads to sloppy journalism likethis storyat the Annapolis Patch from Saturday.
No qualifiers, no research on the part of reporters, they just took the word of the SPLC!
21 Hate Groups Are Active In Maryland
BALTIMORE, MD — Maryland is home to 21 radical groups that spew hate – an increase of three from two years ago. Among them are Neo-Nazis, black and white nationalists and groups whose members are anti-Muslim or which exist to deny the Holocaust.
The list has been drawn up by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which located the groups on an interactive map.
Before I give you the groups in Maryland, ask yourselves how many actually exist? If they have me, a one person blog, on their target list, then could some of their other groupsbe simply one person! Or, perhaps they don’t exist at all?
The SPLCcounts on ‘reporters’ who swallow their lists, hook, line, and sinker!
The groups (supposedly) located in Maryland are:
American Free Press in Upper Marlboro, general hate
Barnes Review/Foundation for Economic Liberty, Inc., headquarters in Upper Marlboro, Holocaust denial
Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, statewide
Identity Evropa, white nationalists, statewide
