Find me on Facebook and at my other blog, Frauds, Crooks and Criminals

If you have missed news about refugees, I’m still writing about them at Frauds and Crooks and as of last night I am back up and running at Refugee Resettlement Watch’s Facebook page. You can find the page here (48,000 likes!). I’ll post refugee news there that I might not use at Frauds and Crooks.   See Frauds […]

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 […]

Immigrants are registering to vote before becoming citizens

No duh! Sorry no time to write much today, but I want you to have something to read, so have a look at a report at the Center for Immigration Studies about aliens voting. Surely, you have all pondered the fact that as aliens of all stripes get drivers’ licenses, they can simply check a […]

Ohio Gov Kasich: The Lord wants us to accept the migrant caravan; Biblical expert: not so fast!

Ohio is developing in to one of the most migrant ‘welcoming’ states in the nation thanks to its present governor and former candidate for President, John Kasich. But, this is a bit much even for him! For all of you who are sick of the ‘welcome the stranger’ club many leaders of the Religious Left […]

Pennsylvania synagogue killer was angry about the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society…

….and he didn’t like Trump either. Editor:  First, let me be clear. Nothing in this post is meant in any way to suggest that we condone this horrific act of violence against innocent people. This was a vile act by someone whose hatred of Jews was so great that he had obviously abandoned all reason […]

Texas is top refugee resettlement state in the nation since 2008 (blue state here we come?)

I’m working on a post on Kentucky which sent me back to the Refugee Processing Center for some numbers. So, I saw this data and figured it would be a useful bit of information for you especially as there is much talk these days as a result of the US Senate race there about Texas […]

We are still taking ‘refugees’ from safe countries

Every so often I check out the Processing Country data at the Refugee Processing Center (Wrapsnet) maintained by the US State Department. More frequently I report to you about the nationalities entering the US, but processing country data is very different. From processing country data, we learn in which countries supposed ‘refugees’ are processed in […]

Twin Falls, Idaho welcomed nearly 3,000 refugees in ten years

I was very interested to see the list of top cities in the US that ‘welcome’ refugees when I  published The Tent Foundation/Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service Refugee Hiring Guide the other day. Where is Twin Falls? Today I had a chance to look at the list more carefully and I’ll be darned, I don’t […]

We told you yesterday that President Trump signed the Memorandum (the Presidential Determination) capping refugee admissions for FY19 which began on October 1 at 30,000. A total of 73 were admitted yesterday in […]
