Freed American hiker, Sarah Shourd, worked for agency helping “refugees” get into American colleges

Admittedly, I have paid not one moments attention to the three American hikers who accidentally stumbled across the Iraq-Iran border and subsequently spent more than a year in an Iranian prison (two are still in prison).  The one female in the threesome made international news when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ‘benevolently’ released her (coincidentally just before he arrived in […]

Deportations up under Obama

Hmmmm…this is an interesting report from the Philadelphia Inquirer yesterday [emphasis mine]: After he was convicted of assaulting a Philadelphia man in 1998, Cambodian refugee Mout Iv knew he was in the United States on borrowed time. As it turned out, quite a lot of borrowed time. He was freed from a Pennsylvania prison after […]

Update on Iraqi refugees: conditions no better

Iraq: The Ignored Victims is the title of a September 14 article by Cardinal Theodore McCarrick in the New York Review of Books. He visited Iraq and surrounding countries to see the situation for himself. What he found seems little changed from previous reports. The humanitarian consequences of this seven-year war on Iraqi civilians are […]

Catholic “leaders” push Dream Act and you pay for it

Your tax dollars This is a topic I’ve discussed before, but it bears repeating (again and again!).   US taxpayers are paying for the lobbying work of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.   And, I’m betting the average Catholic parishoner has no clue, nor would many approve of the Church taking government money to lobby for […]

Somalis hijack a Kansas City election

Update October 8th:  Appeals Court ruling expected soon, here. Jack Cashill has this stunning story on American Thinker today. Through a combination of massive, Somali-driven voter fraud, stunning Election Board incompetence, and the willful blindness of the Kansas City Star, machine Democrat J.J. Rizzo managed to beat conservative Democrat Will Royster by one vote in […]

Did George Bush consider taking 100,000 Palestinians?

I don’t doubt for a minute that this wasn’t discussed in the Bush White House, heck they were taking other large groups of refugees without Congressional approval. Olmert says details and numbers were discussed.  Hadley says they didn’t get specific.  Abrams says it never happened.  From the Jerusalem Post: The idea of the US accepting […]

Center for Immigration Studies: Family reunification proposal flawed

Author and refugee expert, Don Barnett, writing at the Center for Immigration Studies tells us what is wrong with the US State Department’s new plan for bringing refugee families to the US. Barnett’s introduction first recaps what we have said previously, here. Most of the “family reunification” provisions in the U.S. refugee program have been […]

2,200 Somalis attracted (so far) to Lexington, NE by Tysons Food

I’ve reported on the meatpacking town of Lexington, NE a bunch of times.   Here is an AP story I posted on from way back in 2007 when the Somalis first began arriving in Lexington.  Rural America unprepared in 2007! One problem landlords faced when African refugees first began flowing into Lexington: burning wood on top […]

Ft. Morgan, CO Police Chief sent to Denmark to learn more about refugees

The trip, sponsored by the US State Department as part of a program to help communities deal with a refugee influx, is detailed here in a lengthy article in the Ft. Morgan Times: Fort Morgan Police Chief Keith Kuretich spent two weeks in Denmark recently talking with of-ficials about Fort Morgan’s experience with refugees and […]
