Church World Service on the Sanctuary Bandwagon; Cut Their Federal Funding!

Recently I told you that Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, a federal refugee contractor, had become the first church group to declare that they are a sanctuary church that seeks to protect the “undocumented.”

We see that another federal contractor, Church World Service, which received $39 million from US taxpayers in 2018, is on the sanctuary bandwagon.

No pictures of crying kids!  By the way, these are two Salvadorans charged in the rape of an 11-year-old in Montgomery County, MD a sanctuary county.  I didn’t have the photos for my post on Saturday, so thought I would put them here.  Why not!  This is what you get with sanctuary policies!  https://fraudscrookscriminals.com/2019/08/17/maryland-salvadorans-arrested-for-repeatedly-raping-11-year-old/

 

Church World Service wants you to contribute to their sanctuary scheme. (Hat tip: Joanne)

From their website:

With the resurgence of the Sanctuary Movement, hundreds of congregations are standing in solidarity with immigrants and providing spaces of sanctuary for individuals facing deportation or targeted by hate. The Sanctuary Movement has been lifting up stories of immigrant leaders and people of faith working together to stop individual deportations and demonstrate against mass deportations and detention.

We are living in extraordinary times, which call for more resources and support from as many people as possible to help strengthen our capacity to create sanctuary spaces, outreach to new congregations and build new coalitions.

People of faith from all traditions are called to respond to the current political reality by joining the Sanctuary Movement and working together to lift up the prophetic voice of immigrant leaders.

Please donate to the Sanctuary Movement today.

 

Just so you know these are the Member congregations Church World Service claims as their own.  It is over 50 years since Cloward and Piven wrote about the strategy to transform America—to bring on the revolution—a strategy that required getting the churches on the side of the communists, see here.

Is your church on that list?

Checking their latest financials, you can see that CWS received 62 percent ($39 million) of its income from you via your tax dollars in this most recent Charity Navigator report.

Look at the bright side!

I guess they are making a big push for dollars for their sanctuary program because they are way down in government funding.  See here in January that in the previous year they got $68 million directly from the US Treasury (from you!).

For new readers, see the list of all nine UN/US State Department refugee resettlement “partners” here.

If you haven’t done it already, you must tell the Prez to cut all federal funding of these fake non-profits sucking off the federal teat while breaking the law and harboring illegal aliens!

 

167 Jewish Groups Urge President to Admit “at least 95,000 refugees” in FY2020

Screenshot (97)

First they want the 30,000 they believe they were promised for this year (FY19).

See my post yesterday where I explain we are likely to reach that number by September 30th.

However, in a recent letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo they say they want 95,000 next year.

 

Here is the news at from the Jewish Council for Public Affairs:

167 Jewish Organizations Urge U.S. to Meet Refugee Goal

JCPA, a network of 125 local Jewish community relations councils and 17 national Jewish agencies, has joined with 166 national, state, and local Jewish organizations and institutions in urging the United States to meet the refugee resettlement admissions goal of 30,000 for fiscal year 2019 and to return to historic norms next year.

In a letter delivered to Secretary of State Michael Pompeo on Wednesday (August 7th), the group explained, “The United States has historically distinguished itself as a beacon of hope and as a safe haven for those who most need it. For nearly 40 years, the refugee admissions target averaged 95,000 per year, with actual admissions averaging 80,000 refugees per year. Despite this, the Administration set the admissions ceiling to a historic low of 30,000 refugees in FY19. Resettling zero refugees in the U.S. in FY2020 would effectively gut the refugee resettlement program, violate our values as Jews and Americans, and abdicate the American promise of freedom and opportunity.”

Not mentioned in the short news story is the request for the CEILING for 2020 to be set at 95,000.  See the letter with its 167 signatures.  This is a paragraph from near the end.

We urge the Department of State, in partnership with the other implementing agencies, to restore our country’s refugee admissions cap to at least 95,000 for FY2020. The values of our nation and the safety and well-being of tens of thousands of refugees and their families depend on it.

Don’t miss the list of those that signed the letter, here.

What do they mean by restore the cap to 95,000?

In the last ten years (mostly Obama years!) the cap was no where near 95,000 until Obama set it at 110,000 in September 2017 as he was getting ready to vacate the Oval Office.

Why didn’t he set it at 110,000 or even 95,000 in his previous opportunities to set the CEILING?

I didn’t see these same groups attacking the sainted Obama for his much lower caps in his previous 7 years in office!

They make it sound like we have been admitting that extreme number in the years prior to the arrival of Donald Trump. We have not!

See the last ten years of CEILING data at Wrapsnet and then the actual number of admissions.

And, remember this: in the early years of the refugee program which began in 1980, we were not being invaded by tens of thousands of asylum seekers (wannabe refugees) at our borders as we are today.

I couldn’t manage to get the whole chart on the screen, but the part I want you to see is the column for the CEILING.  So what do they mean by claiming the CEILING must be RESTORED to 95,000!  Compare the CEILING column to the actual admissions and you will see that Obama’s numbers were high, but not as high as they are demanding that Trump’s should be!

Trump Administration on Target to Reach 30,000 Refugee Cap for the Year

There has been a lot of squawking from the refugee industry of late demanding admission of the full 30,000 refugees that the Trump Administration set as its ceiling for FY19, and it looks like they will get pretty close.

But, first a little housekeeping.  I am working on restoring Refugee Resettlement Watch but my helper has been very busy so it is taking longer than I had hoped.

In the meantime, I’ll bring you some refugee news here at Frauds and Crooks.  I have already been reporting some of the news about the refugee contractors*** demand for 95,000 refugees for the new fiscal year (FY2020 begins on October 1 of this year).

Today I’m updating numbers and nationalities of this year’s refugee crop.

Also, several readers at Facebook and some readers here tell me that yesterday’s post about those creeps who taunted an old white lady in a Chicago area nursing home, here, were unable to open the story or it was never sent out.  I hope too many of you didn’t have the same problem.

So how are refugee admissions going this year?

rpclogo

Here (below) is a map from Wrapsnet showing how many refugees have been admitted since October 1, 2018 to August 1, 2019 (10 months).  Texas continues to lead the nation as the number one most ‘welcoming’ state.  (They will turn Texas blue!)

You can see that as of August 1, 24,906 refugees have been admitted. And, with two months and a little over 5,000 more to go, they might very well make it to the CAP (aka ceiling).  Remember though that since that is a CEILING, there is nothing that says the State Department must hit the ceiling.

The Prez, when setting the 30,000 limit, might very well have finished the year with only a fraction of that number and been completely within the law.

I know the numbers are difficult to read, so here are the top ten welcoming states:

Texas, New York, Washington, California, Kentucky, Ohio, Georgia, Arizona, North Carolina, and Michigan.

The top three nationalities in this year’s flow are ‘refugees’ from the DR Congo by far with 11,047, followed by Burma with 4,175 (826 of those are Rohingya Muslims), and Ukraine 3,036.

The total number of Muslims admitted in the first ten months is just over 4,000, or about 16% of the total refugee arrivals of 24,906.

"Religious" Groups Push Pompeo to Admit 95,000 Refugees in 2020

Refugee Resettlement Watch might be down for awhile, but that doesn’t mean you won’t get refugee news!

For new readers that 95,000 number is for refugees chosen abroad and flown here on your dime and then resettled by the State Department’s nine paid resettlement contractors.  (The Trump team never got rid of any of the nine as they once promised to do!)
Of course that 95,000 number is in addition to the hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers who illegally entered the US and asked to be declared refugees.  Refugees are eligible for most forms of welfare once designated.
Logo+ refugee council usa
The lobbying arm of the refugee industry, the Refugee Council USA, confirms that 95,000 is their target number for FY2020 which begins October 1, 2019.
They announce their pie-in-the-sky number early and often so then when Trump suggests something less than that they can scream bloody murder.
BTW, as of June 30th of FY19, the Trump Administration had admitted just over 21,000, thus the State Department will have to speed things up to even make the 30,000 ceiling for this year.
The lobbying group Refugee Council USA wants its followers to….

Hold the administration accountable to meeting this year’s 30,000 refugee admissions goal and urge them to commit to resettling at least 95,000 refugees in Fiscal Year 2020, rebuilding the program and returning it to historic norms.

That made me laugh because not even Barack Obama came near their “historic norms.”
“Rebuilding the program” means pouring more taxpayer dollars into the “religious” groups’ coffers. 
The story that caught my eye today is this one from Deseret News.  
There is no mention made that some of those signing a letter to the Secretary of State have a vested financial interest in increasing the number of refugees being admitted.

Religious groups react to rumors the U.S. will stop admitting refugees. What would it mean for U.S. values?

walter mondale
Who dat? They’ve trotted out 90-year-old Walter Mondale to tell Trump we need more refugees!

You can read it yourself.
In addition to Walter Mondale, Deseret News wants you to know that Islamic Relief USA is also pounding Pompeo with a lecture about our “foundational values.”
Mentioned in the story is a letter sent by what the Deseret News calls 40 “faith groups” to Secretary of State Pompeo in June demanding a “robust” program for the coming fiscal year.
You can read the letter here.
Here is a screenshot of the last paragraph:

And now here (below) are the forty plus “faith” groups which signed the letter.
If you are a supporter of any of the hodge podge of groups below and disapprove of their support for this effort, be sure to let them know!

Of the nine paid resettlement contractors, five groups whose budgets depend on your tax dollars for refugee clients signed the letter: Church World Service, HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, the Episcopal Church and World Relief.
Although several Catholic-affiliated groups are mentioned neither of the giants resettling the largest number of refugees in the US—Catholic Charities or the US Conference of Catholic Bishops—are mentioned.

This is the time to let the President know what your number is for FY2020!  He needs a robust response from you!

Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar Fined for Violating Campaign Finance Laws; Questions about Alleged Marriage to Brother

Surely you have all seen this news, but as I started to pull my round-up together for last week (yes, I am late!), I realized I need to post this more prominently even if most of you have seen the latest installment of Ilhan’s exciting life.
And, I am posting it because she casually mentions that she followed Muslim law when she married hubby number one. 
This is how Sharia creep works! Many people will just say ‘well, okay.’  (See my post yesterday.)

The version of the story I’m using about Omar’s financial shenanigans is from the UK Daily Mail and I mention that because although this story was everywhere, the Daily Mail is often the first place you will read news deemed politically incorrect by the snooty and biased US media.
