Another month with small numbers of paying customers for the refugee contractors

Month number seven of fiscal year 2018 ended last night, and from the contractors*** point of view, it was another dismal one for agencies collecting a per head payment for refugees they place and ‘take care of’ for only a few months. April’s total was 1,607 which is below average for the previous six months […]

Trump on pace to break Bush record of lowest refugee resettlement numbers since 1980 law enacted

We have now reached the six month mark of the first full fiscal year of the Trump presidency and Trump could easily break the Bush record set in 2002 of 27,070 refugee admissions for one year. (See post here on the Bush record low years.) At the six month mark, the Trump Administration operating well […]

GAO: Huge numbers of Special Immigrant Visa holders not finding work

But a big problem, says the Government Accountability Office , is that neither the US State Department or the Office of Refugee Resettlement in HHS are doing much to track the outcomes of those admitted to the US from Iraq and Afghanistan who supposedly worked for us as interpreters. I told you here recently that the number […]

Wholesale movement of Bhutanese refugees to US to end (so they say!)

But, the UN still has 8,500 more to go to completely clean out their camps in Nepal. The other day I mentioned that the US under Obama committed to helping the UN clean out some of its African camps of the people from the DR Congo and I predicted the resettlement would go way beyond […]

45,732 refugees admitted this fiscal year so far, 45% are Muslim

I’ve been asked frequently what the numbers look like for which religions are practiced by refugees entering the US right now. Unless Donald Trump tells us that the New York Times story was fake news last week, see here, and that we are not shooting for 70,000 refugees this year, we will assume it is […]

Mr. Cool goes to Milan, is paid millions to announce that "climate refugees" will flood the first world

Changing the subject? Just in case Islam-generated conflicts run out of steam in the Middle East and Africa, Barack Obama crossed the Atlantic to collect a speaking fee reportedly in the $3 million range to pronounce that, as a result of global warming there would be a refugee crisis “unprecedented in human history.” He wants […]

Nearly 100,000 Bhutanese refugees later we help UN clean out camps in Nepal

Lesson! When the Department of State welcomes an ethnic group to America expect the resettlement to be larger and longer than they initially said it would be. We have followed the process of cleaning out UNHCR camps in Nepal of Bhutanese refugees ever since the Bush Administration said: ‘come on in’ we well take 60,000.  […]

Concord, NH: Bhutanese refugees' religious ceremony draws neighbors' ire

I’m running out of time this morning after writing so much about Allentown, PA, but want to get a few more things posted before I have to move on to other of life’s duties. Over a week ago a large gathering of Bhutanese refugees disturbed a quiet Concord neighborhood with chanting, large numbers of people […]

Sec. of State John Kerry: Climate refugees our next move to erase borders

Thanks to reader Joanne for sending us this bit of news from one-worlder John Kerry. Kerry must be so thrilled to combine two of the the Left’s favorite pet propaganda campaigns—global warming and refugees. It is not “new” as Kerry claims, we have an entire category devoted to so-called ‘climate refugees,’ go here (46 previous […]

Cuban "refugee" numbers ticked up dramatically when Obama announced normalization of relations with Cuba

Once Obama announced that we were going to be on good terms with Communist Cuba, I wondered what it would mean for the tens of thousands of so-called Cuban refugees we have been taking in over recent years. I would think the whole Cuban resettlement would come to a grinding halt since love was in […]
