El Cajon, CA officials in DC this week begging for help with refugee overload

…..they want $20 million from the federal government and a state of emergency declared for San Diego County to help them out with their refugee overload.

Feds:  It’s your problem now!

For those of you following the Refugee Resettlement program of the US State Department this news item from Fox News in El Cajon won’t come as a surprise. (Hat tip: a friend from Tennessee)

Here is the gist of the story.   Since 2005, the reporter tells us 15,000 refugees have come to San Diego County—the largest number are from Iraq, or more precisely Iraqis from somewhere in the Middle East.

Their federal resettlement contractors are the International Rescue Committee and Catholic Charities (no, you don’t say!)

There are no jobs (surprise!).

2000 refugees are on a waiting list to get English lessons. (no English=no jobs)

A local college wants to help, but an administrator says on tape that he is “surprised” the federal government has no sympathy for the community’s plight after it was the feds who brought such large numbers to San Diego County.

It is your problem now, say federal officials.

County officials have gone to Washington in search of $20 million of your tax dollars to bail out the beleaguered city.

Good luck with that!

Watch the film!

The controversy you likely aren’t hearing much about….

….Rep. Michele Bachmann (whose Minnesota district, by the way, is presently being flooded with Somalis by the US State Department and its resettlement contractors) has come under attack because she and four other House members want to know how deeply the Muslim Brotherhood has planted its tentacles into the US government, including into the State Department. 

Perhaps you know that Hillary Clinton’s chief aide is Huma Abedin Weiner whose family has long ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.  Bachmann et al want to know if she and others connected to the Brotherhood have been properly vetted.

And, for her questions, she is being attacked by RINO Republicans.  I doubt Hillary has said a word; why should she when Republican Senator John McCain and Speaker John Boehner are doing the work for her.

Just so you know I’ve been busy (no summer vacation here!) with my other blog, Potomac Tea Party Report, here (and below) is my post there this  morning.  And, if you want to understand the whole controversy please follow links to my complete coverage:

21 Minutes to a better understanding…..

Regular readers know that I’ve posted several times in the last few days about how critical the situation has become involving the RINO (Republican in name only) attack on Rep. Michele Bachmann and her courageous House colleagues seeking information about the extent of Muslim Brotherhood tentacles into various US government agencies.  Previous posts are here, here (Norquist!) and here.

Please spend 21 minutes listening to radio host Mark Levin’s interview with Andy McCarthy, here, for a mini-tutorial on this critical issue of national security.

It is time to choose sides—either you are with Bachmann (and her fellow House members) or with the Muslim Brotherhood and its apologists which includes Speaker John Boehner and Senator John McCain.

Ask your Republican Member of Congress to decide and publicly announce where he or she stands!

By the way, McCarthy, author of The Grand Jihad, suggests near the end of the 21 minutes that in light of this latest situation with Bachmann that there may no longer be any reason to believe that the Republican Party can acquire a spine and be reformed from within.

Related story?  Recently I saw this 5-year-old story in the Washington Post about how Muslims in Northern Virginia were beginning to make inroads into political office and it reports a statistic I hadn’t seen before.

Nationally, about two-thirds of Muslims are immigrants.

With more arriving daily thanks to the US State Department!
