Oklahoma town expects economic boon as federal refugee workers move in!

Just keep it up!  “Refugee” will definitely be a very bad word when/if the Obama-generated crisis on the border is ever resolved.

Invasion of America continues….

Mayor Fitch: Yippee! Federal money and federal workers headed our way!

Check out this story by Ryan Lovelace who has been writing some good stuff at National Review Online (hat tip: Paul).  Emphasis is mine:

Oklahomans expect an economic boom as a result of the flood of illegal immigrant children the federal government has begun sending their way.

The Department of Defense has loaned the facilities at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma, to the Department of Health and Human Services to house approximately 600 unaccompanied alien children, according to the Department of Defense. Local officials expect the surrounding community to reap the rewards.

“They’re talking about $1.2 million impact for the Lawton-Fort Sill community within the first 30 days,” Lawton Mayor Fred Fitch told KSWO 7 News.

Lawton will roll in federal tax dollars/federal workers and the “children” will all be good kids (as long as they are confined)!

The Oklahoman reports the ratio of federal worker to child at Ft. Sill will be one federal worker per every two children. Based on that ratio, the area could expect approximately 300 federal workers. An HHS factsheet indicates such workers would include representatives from the Office of Refugee Resettlement within HHS’ Administration for Children and Families. The kids will be kept in a 200,000 square foot building and kept under 24-hour supervision. Fitch insisted to KSWO that the children will not be allowed to leave the confines of the post and that the influx of children will not have any adverse impact on the local community.

As our 7th anniversary approaches….

RRW needs help!

From the editor:

 I believe we are now at a crisis stage in America like no other in 150 years!

It hardly seems possible, but in a few weeks Refugee Resettlement Watch (see our ‘About’ page) will be seven years old!  Almost every day for seven years we have posted some news on the US Refugee Admissions program directed by the United Nations (carried out by the US State Department, the Office of Refugee Resettlement in HHS and their contractors***) and related issues involving LEGAL and sometimes illegal immigration.

We began with 14 viewers in the month of June ’07 and that was probably a few tech helpers just testing the site!  Recently we have had 45,000 viewers in a month and they come from all over the world!   We have written 5,660 posts to date and, as I said, rarely miss a day!

Our facebook readers sometimes surpass 30,000 in a week!

I’m writing this, not to toot our horn, but to say that it is really concerning me that I can’t keep up with all of your e-mails and inquiries and write posts too.

But, please keep sending me articles because the growing number of concerned citizens are the greatest information resource I have for what is going on in your states with refugees and with the ever-expanding number of migrants being labeled as “refugees,” and with the large number coming from Muslim countries.   If I don’t always respond, please know that I am here without helpers!  LOL!  No secretaries, no interns, no nothing!

Perhaps as the invasion on the border continues, with the mostly teenaged boys being treated like refugees, the large immigration control groups (I won’t name names, you know who you are) will get in gear and pay attention to the Refugee program (assign some staff to it!) which they have largely ignored these last seven years.

Bottom line:  this week as World Refugee Day approaches on Friday—we need help!  The issue is too big for a volunteer blogger in the basement!  If you are a member of the big immigration control groups, tell them to pay attention to the refugee program and since the contractors are lobbying especially this week (in the media and on The Hill), take time to let your elected officials know (at all levels of government) how you feel about the ever-expanding resettlement of third-worlders into your towns and cities.  Bombard especially Rep. Trey Gowdy!

Thank you!!!   Ann
