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!

Missouri: Catholic refugee agency complains about cuts to their federal funding

Here is my solution for those doing Christian ‘charitable’ work for refugees—find more VOLUNTEERS!  Do Catholics have to be paid by taxpayers to do their religious charitable work, it sure sounds like it!
