So check it out! ABC News is reporting that riot police have been brought in to protect the ‘children’ in a Rome neigborhood (really the teenaged boys who have flooded to Italy, just like the ‘children’ invaded America this summer). See our post yesterday, here.
So, what do you think, just a coincidence, or is this part of a strategy, helped along by the likes of George Soros, to bring on a revolution, to bring down the West?
Riot police moved in Thursday to prevent residents of a neighborhood on Rome’s outskirts from attacking refugees living at a holding center in the latest incident of anti-immigrant tensions rocking Italy.
The working-class neighborhood of Tor Sapienza has seen several days and nights of violence against refugees by residents who blame foreigners for crimes. The residents say they’re not racist, but are fed up with what they say are years of neglect by government authorities who have allowed gypsies, migrants and asylum-seekers to settle in Rome’s peripheries without providing adequate services.
For the UN it is never possible that the “children” might be the problem, it is always the local citizens who are violent and filled with intolerance.
The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees condemned the violence, saying refugees and unaccompanied minors fleeing war and conflict deserve protection, respect and help integrating, not “unacceptable” acts of violence and intolerance.
In a statement, the UNHCR condemned “extremists” who are capitalizing on residents’ fears to fuel conflict.
Officials at the “Smile” center said unaccompanied minors living there — most aged 16 and 17 from Egypt and Bangladesh— were being moved to another center in Rome for their own security after another small clash broke out Thursday.
And, special feature: The Commies at Casa de Maryland are at it again too!
When you read this New York Times article you can pat yourselves on the back for holding off the no-borders leftists for as long as we have with mostly grassroots power and no money.
But, don’t despair! We can do it again!
The New York Timesyesterday gives us a catalog of the Leftwing big bucks flowing into supposed do-gooder pro-immigrant lobbying groups. And, this doesn’t even include the money coming from big international corporations, like BIG MEAT, looking for cheap laborers.
Who gets screwed (sorry for the language, but how else can you say it)? Middle and lower class Americans who want to work and love America as it is!
They aren’t just fishing for Democrat voters, they are working for the advancement of a socialist/communist borderless world where people like George Soros, and now his offspring, will control what happens throughout the world to your detriment and their financial advantage. (Of course Soros and his ilk think they can control the Islamists and their migration agenda.)
The pro-open borders/no borders do-gooders (and frankly some of the immigrants themselves) are only pawns.
From the NYT(hat tip: Judy). We pushed them back in 2007, we can do it again! (Emphasis is mine)
When President Obama announces major changes to the nation’s immigration enforcement system as early as next week, his decision will partly be a result of a yearslong campaign of pressure by immigrant rights groups, which have grown from a cluster of lobbying organizations into a national force.
A vital part of that expansion has involved money: major donations from some of the nation’s wealthiest liberal foundations, including the Ford Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Open Society Foundations of the financier George Soros, and the Atlantic Philanthropies. Over the past decade those donors have invested more than $300 million in immigrant organizations, including many fighting for a pathway to citizenship for immigrants here illegally.
The philanthropies helped the groups rebound after setbacks and financed the infrastructure of a network in constant motion, with marches, rallies, vigils, fasts, bus tours and voter drives. The donors maintained their support as the immigration issue became fiercely partisan on Capitol Hill and the activists intensified their protests, engaging in civil disobedience and brash confrontations with lawmakers and the police.
The donors’ strategy arose in 2007, as immigrant groups nursed wounds from a rout after a bill pushed by President George W. Bush failed in Congress.
Mr. Stein, this is bigger than the Democrat party! We have been watching the same strategies unfold in our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series. Did you know they have the ‘unaccompanied minors’ invasion happening there too (see next post this morning).
“The whole apparatus has become the handmaiden of the Democratic Party,” said Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR, which opposes legalization for unauthorized immigrants. “These foundations fund activist organizations designed to create ethnic identity enclaves and politically control them for partisan purposes.”
Speaking of ethnic enclaves, predictably here comes Casa de Maryland. Be sure to read all about the Commies at CASA,here. (LOL! We have to get over our self-censorship and call a Communist a Communist!).
…. now that the White House has confirmed that Mr. Obama plans measures that could shield as many as five million immigrants from deportation, the advocates are mobilized and pushing him to act as broadly as his powers allow.
Last week, two days after the president held a news conference in the wake of the midterm elections, vowing to take executive action on immigration, Gustavo Torres, the executive director of CASA de Maryland and a coalition leader, was protesting once again in front of the White House.
“We expect the president to be big and bold,” he said. “This is his opportunity to make sure we are going to remember him as the president who made a difference for Latino and immigrant communities.”
Read the whole New York Times story here. You might want to have a look at all of our previous mentions of Casa de Maryland, here.
We didn’t post a wrap-up last week because I just didn’t get to it. But, much to my surprise our top post (again) this week is the one about Somalis going from Colorado, where there is now apparently a serious overload of refugees looking for subsidized housing, to Wyoming to pick up housing vouchers they can take back and use in Colorado.
Here are the top most-visited stories this week (Top daily posts are in the right-hand sidebar):
Top ten countries (excluding the US). And, check this out, for the first time another country pushed aside one of the usual top three and came in at number one—Malta!
Malta (those Maltese must have really liked our Malta writer post!)
If this month’s high number of visitors continues through November, we could top our top month ever (October) in terms of readership.
And, since we get new readers every day, here is my usual spiel. For new readers:
This is where you can find information if you are arriving here at RRW for the first time (in addition to the fact sheet linked above). We have over 6,000 posts.
* See our categories (left hand sidebar)
* See the tag clouds (right hand sidebar)
* Also, we have a great search function and since neither the categories nor the tags go all the way back to our first posts seven years ago, use the search window with a few key words. You might want to first try your city, state, or country to see what we have reported from there over the years.
By the way, our category entitled ‘where to find information’ is filled with reports and documents, but with 307 posts archived there, it is pretty unwieldy now.
Past weekly roundups can be found in our category entitled ‘blogging.’
And apologies to all who e-mail and comment, sorry if I don’t respond much, there are just not enough hours in my day!
It occurs to me that I do see everyone’s comments to posts because we do screen them (no foul language, no threats), so if you have something you want me to see, I don’t at all mind if you send the link as a comment to a post, even if it’s off-topic.
To regular readers, thank you for your continued concern for this very important issue.
