Gainesville, GA: School system doesn’t know how many UACs they are educating; already calling them refugees

The flood of Unaccompanied Alien Children that came across the US southern border this summer is now having an impact on local school systems as school boards and administrators have to figure out how to educate them, some of whom speak rare dialects and have had little formal schooling.  All of this is, of course, going to cost local taxpayers and disrupt learning for many American kids.

Someone has to pay to educate the “children.” Last I heard Georgia got 1,709 of them.

Here in the Gainesville Times, we see that officials are already referring to the illegal aliens as refugees.

They are not refugees, but that is what the Obama Administration and the United Nations (which calls the shots!) wants you to believe.

Indeed, it is my view that the whole invasion mess represents the big push to change the internationally understood definition of what constitutes a ‘refugee’—someone who is escaping persecution for reasons of religion, race or political persuasion.

Once they succeed in redefining refugees (asylum seekers) as people escaping crime, the entire system crashes and anyone in the world can claim asylum in America simply alleging that they fear criminals where they live.

Gainesville is in Hall County (the poultry capital), see a previous post on the problems there with the influx of UACs.

From the Gainesville Times on Saturday:

As children from Central America have fled to the U.S. as refugees, some have wound up in Gainesville schools, but officials said they don’t keep track of how many.   [Kind of hard to budget then don’t you think!—ed]

“That’s not a question that we ask,” said Laura Herrington, the district’s director of Title III, a federal program that includes English language learning.

Still, Herrington said the students are there even if there isn’t an exact count.

“I know that we have some who speak dialect, and the dialects that they speak are indicative of some countries in Central America,” she said. “We haven’t asked our students to tell us their stories yet.”

The refugees, she said, are educated in the same program as other students who learn English as a foreign language.

Herrington estimated 30 of about 200 high school students learning English are newly arrived from Central America this year. There likely are more in middle and elementary school, but she doesn’t have a number.

7,000 – 8,000?  Where is that number coming from when HHS’s own website says a whole heck of a lot more (see graph!)?

According the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, an average of 7,000 to 8,000 children enter the Unaccompanied Alien Children program each year, and 93 percent of them from El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. The children often come to the United States to escape violence, abuse or persecution, to seek family members or to find work. They sometimes are brought into the country by human trafficking rings, according to the department.

Obama and the UN—they are REFUGEES

The United Nations has pushed the U.S. to treat children from those three countries as refugees displaced by armed conflict, as drug traffickers and street gangs have made the three-country region one of the world’s most violent.

Last month, the Obama administration began a program to give refugee status to some children from those countries in response to the influx of unaccompanied minors entering the country illegally. Under the program, legal immigrants from those countries can request that children related to them be resettled in the U.S. as refugees. [And, thus be eligible for all the welfare goodies official refugees receive!—ed]

Office of Refugee Resettlement maps help you research your state, learn who is responsible

Where in the USA are the refugees and the resettlement offices?

I just came across this very useful map for FY2013-2014 at the Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS) to help you research what is happening with the Refugee Resettlement program in your state.

When you go to the site and click on your state, all of the federal money flowing there is available as well as a list of locations where refugees are resettled with names and contact information for those doing the resettlement.

I can’t emphasize enough how important it is for you to learn about the program where you live.  I know it’s an overused expression, but knowledge is power.  And, that is why we started this blog in the first place to help you gain that knowledge.

ORR Regional Offices

In 2013, ORR Director Eskinder Negash, announced the creation of Regional refugee resettlement offices to coordinate state offices.  At that time there were regional refugee offices located within five of the ten Administration for Children and Family (ACF) offices.

ORR will open up to five regional offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, and San Francisco (and potentially additional regional locations).

Australia: Sunni (ISIS) believed responsible for attack on Shiite

Just a quick note from Down Under—-this is what happens when western countries “welcome” the opposing factions of Islam to live among us.  This conflict has been going on since the year 632 and isn’t going to end any time soon.

A reminder:  We (the US) will soon be bringing in mostly Sunni Muslim Syrians from UN-run camps in the Middle East (5,000 in the pipeline).  I don’t know, but will try to find out, if the majority of Iraqis we are bringing now (among the 20,000 or so in the last year alone) are Sunnis or Shiites (I am guessing mostly Sunni).



From the UK Daily Mail (hat tip: pungentpeppers):

Fear of revenge attacks follow the shooting of a Shiite Muslim in a drive-by attack in Sydney’s south-west.

Rasoul Al-Musawi was closing up an Islamic prayer centre on Rosedale Avenue is Greenacre when the attack occurred, with friends claiming he was targeted targeted by people claiming to be supporters of Islamic State.

Mr Al-Musawi was shot in the face and shoulder while he was with his wife and four of his children at the Husainiyah Nabi Akram centre.

Mr Al-Musawi’s friend – who did not wish to be named – is a Shiite Muslim and said the shooting in Greenacre was motivated by the sectarian struggle in the Middle East.

‘They called us “Shia dogs” and they threatened to come back down tonight and kill you, shoot you, whatever,’ he told ABC Radio on Monday.

The man said they had taken no notice of the threats made on the night of the shooting – which also included ‘IS lives forever’ – but then he received a phone call saying his friend had been shot.

We have 148 previous posts about Australia, here.  They have their problems with refugees and phony asylum seekers, but at least there is a serious effort underway by the present government to stem the illegal flow to Australia.
