Trump rudely fires only cabinet member doing anything to seriously halt the migrant “invasion”

Did the Open Borders Republicans looking for cheap labor finally persuade the President to unceremoniously dump the only man (probably in all of America!) who knew the nuts of bolts of immigration law and who had fought for decades to put America first when it came to the demographic makeup of the country? As long […]

Is Minnesota lost? That has to be the question many are asking this morning

I woke up this morning with my head spinning about the results nationwide, and couldn’t at first figure out where to dive in to tell you what I think about the midterm election results. Over time, I’ll have more to say about what it all means, but I do know this—there will be no legislative […]

Refugee resettlement is a major issue in several Minnesota races

Three Republicans have said they will work to stop or at least curtail further resettlement to the state if elected. From Twin Cities Pioneer Press: Some Republican candidates want to suspend refugee resettlement in Minnesota. Can they do that?   Minnesota has welcomed thousands of refugees since the federal resettlement process was set in 1980. […]

Pittsburgh paper: HIAS remains defiant in wake of synagogue murders

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette‘s headline is this: Pittsburgh’s Jewish refugee resettlement agency, HIAS vow to continue work after threats, Squirrel Hill shooting   The story paints a picture of a ‘non-profit‘ group that is all about welcoming the poor and downtrodden to America, but never mentions the fact that it is more than 50% funded by […]

Dozens of Australia’s rejected asylum seekers offered a ticket to the US, turned it down, see why…..

They heard they would have to work in America! This is another in my ever-expanding archive about that Obama “dumb deal” (honored by President Trump) to take 1,250 of Australia’s detained illegal aliens to the US as refugees. Readers need to know that this whole scheme is outside the normal internationally understood process for dealing […]

1,830 refugees arrived in the US in first month of FY19, welcomed by 43 states

In the first month of Fiscal Year 2019, Trump’s State Department admitted its initial group of refugees, mostly UN-selected, toward its proposed cap of 30,000 for resettlement  this year. They are being quietly distributed to approximately 170 towns and cities. If the DOS kept this same pace, 1,830 a month, we would come in just under […]

How more of your money flows out of Washington to non-profit groups that ‘help’ immigrants and refugees

The grant program is known as the ‘Ethnic Community Self-help Program’ run out of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS). At one point I followed their activities closely and began a file on it, see here, but too much breaking news pushed the subject to the back burner. First, as you know, nine federal […]

Pittsburgh Mayor Peduto refused to meet the President yesterday

Surely you know all about Democrat Mayor Bill Peduto shunning the President and his family when they went to Pittsburgh yesterday to pay their respects to those murdered in the synagogue attack last Saturday.  Here is one of many stories about the Mayor’s snub. And, here is Peduto with Chris Matthews:     By the […]

UN to Trump: You must let them in!

Here we go again! The United Nations is demanding that we follow international law and let those fleeing violence in their Central American countries (not a criteria for granting asylum) into the US.  What happened with that supposed effort to tell Mexico to grant them asylum—that is what international law says! The first safe country […]

Trump has a plan to stop the migrant caravan, will announce Tuesday

I have to say: this is the newest news I’m seeing.  Since the whole issue is in flux (and perhaps more so after the shooting at the synagogue in Pittsburgh where we heard the shooter may have been angry over the caravan as well as HIAS’s role in it), things could change any minute.   […]
