The Refugee Travel Loan Fraud

What is the world coming to?

Yesterday we learned that 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.

Tennessee States’ Rights Case involving US Refugee Program to be Argued by Top Appellate Attorney

As perhaps a signal that this case is incredibly important, the Thomas More Law Center will be represented in the case by a renowned appellate attorney the Center announced yesterday.

TMLC-Logo-10.30.13

Because I don’t want to show my ignorance about the ins and outs of legal cases, I’m posting most of this breaking news in its entirety.

And, am directing you back to my many posts on the case at Refugee Resettlement Watch.

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.

Syrian Sob Stories Help Explain Fraudulent Use of Refugee Status

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!

 

Syrian border crossing
The border between Jordan and Syria is open and ‘refugees’ are popping back and forth!

 

Imagine my surprise to see this news that gives me the rare opportunity to praise the United Nations!

Kentucky: Refugee Seniors Going Hungry as US Imports More Poverty

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!

heads 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 the Cloward and Piven strategy when you have a few extra minutes.

Now to the news from WKU (NPR Kentucky),

The UN was feeding them in Africa and here they go hungry! WTH!

Minnesota: What is Going on? Somali Gangbangers don’t Shoot Each Other in Winter!

Diversity is beautiful alert!

One dead and two injured in Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district in what is believed to be a gang-related shoot out.

After I tell you a bit about the news, I’ll come back to that reference to summer vs. winter shootings in the heart of Little Mogadishu, Minnesota.

Just for the record, Ilhan Omar won the seat vacated by Keith Ellison and it wasn’t just Somalis who elected her to office! Omar with supporters on election night 2018. https://www.mndaily.com/article/2018/11/edistrict5

Example of Fraud in US Refugee Program: More of Australia’s Rejects Headed to Your Town

He said scores of the refugees are suffering serious mental health problems after being held in indefinite detention without trial for so long.

(Ian Rintoul, Australian refugee advocate)

 

When President Trump took office he did not have to honor Obama’s offer to take off of Australia’s hands ‘asylum seekers’ that Australia did not want to bring to its mainland.

But, he did extend the offer and now we see that we have admitted 500 (so far!), mostly young men, that had been living for several years in detention on offshore islands.

This is a completely fraudulent use of the international refugee system that requires that asylum seekers ask for asylum in the first safe country they enter.

It would be like us saying to Australia—hey Aussie’s! how about you take a couple thousand of the caravan migrants we have rushing our southern border.  It is laughable! Right?

Manus refugees
Some of the ‘new Americans’ headed to your neighborhood!

 

From Radio New Zealand,

More Manus refugees bound for the United States

Twenty-two Manus Island refugees left Papua New Guinea yesterday to be resettled in the United States.

[….]

He said including about 300 refugees from Nauru, a total of about 500 from Australian offshore detention have so far been resettled in the US, under a deal struck in 2016 to take up to 1250.

Mr Rintoul said the US deal is “glacially slow” with about 1000 people still left on Manus and Nauru without a future after almost six years.

He said scores of the refugees are suffering serious mental health problems after being held in indefinite detention without trial for so long.

 

More here.

See many, many posts on the Australian “dumb deal” at RRW by clicking here.

You, the American taxpayer are paying for all of this—the cost of resettlement and the cost of mental health treatment!

And, the government (even the Trump Administration) is counting on citizens forgetting about these outrages!

question markWhat do you do? Tell the White House again how much this deal stinks and make sure that you use every means possible through social media to keep this issue alive!

 

 

 

 

 

Southern Poverty Law Center Targeting Me Again

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!

Magnifying glass, close-up, elevated view

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 Watch and 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 Dictionary defines a 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!

Ann SPLC art
This SPLC artwork is part of the campaign to target me and my opinions! 

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 like this story at 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 groups be simply one person!  Or, perhaps they don’t exist at all? 

The SPLC counts 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
Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge, black nationalist, Baltimore
Jamaat Al-Muslimeen, general hate, Baltimore
Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, statewide
Patriot Front, white nationalists, statewide
Refugee Resettlement Watch, anti-Muslim, Fairplay
The Right Stuff, white nationalist, Baltimore
Watchmen of Israel, black nationalist, Baltimore
Atomwaffen Division, neo-Nazi, statewide
Be Active Front USA, racist skinhead, statewide
Great Millstone, black nationalist, Baltimore
Israelite Church of God in Jesus Christ, black nationalist, Baltimore
Israelite The Branches, black nationalist, Baltimore
Label 56, hate music, Baltimore
Noble Klans of America, Ku Klux Klan, statewide
Proud Boys, general hate, Baltimore
Revolutionary Black Panther Party, black nationalist, Baltimore
United Kingdom of Israel Congregation, black nationalist, Baltimore

More of the Patch story here.  Don’t miss the comments as almost all of them at this point are anti-SPLC!

Are you on their Hate Map See here.

I guess I am going to have to take some action regarding the SPLC.  I don’t know what that is yet because all I have is my voice.

question markWhat can you do?  Speak up if you are on their list.  Or, if you see fake news stories like this one at the Patch, send in comments as so many did in Maryland.
