You've been funding 'healthy marriage' grants to non-profit resettlement contractors

Your tax dollars:
I’ve been meaning for awhile to give our new readers some information that we have written about over the years, and, for longtime readers, this is an update.

Lutheran Social Services of South Dakota, the primary refugee contractor in the state, received $1.2 million of your tax dollars to promote Healthy Fatherhood.

We talk all the time about how non-profit refugee resettlement agencies are paid by the head, by the US State Department, to resettle refugees to your towns and cities.
However, that is only a drop in the bucket when it comes to the millions they get from you for every sort of grant under the sun!
One such program you have funded over the years is the Refugee Healthy Marriage Program.
We told you here in 2013 what we found in the 2009 Office of Refugee Resettlement Annual report to Congress.
I see there are still grants listed on page A-24 of the 2010 Annual Report and a description of how millions of your dollars are educating refugees on how to have healthy marriages beginning on page 21 of the report.
Incidentally, these annual reports are a treasure trove of information for those of you who are digging deeper around the country.

A huge expansion of the Healthy Marriage program occurred in 2010!

The new program is now called ‘Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood!’  You pay for it!

What is IRCO doing with your money? Wouldn’t you like to know!

This is how the Dept. of Health and Human Services describes the program:

The Healthy Marriage and Responsible Fatherhood initiative is part of ACF’s strategy to improve the lives of children. ACF funded a local network of 121 organizations in 47 states to provide comprehensive healthy relationship and marriage education services, responsible parenting, and job and career advancement activities to advance economic stability and improve the overall well-being of children and their parents.

The Claims Resolution Act of 2010 (CRA) provided $75 million for Healthy Marriage grants and $75 million for Responsible Fatherhood grants. The grantees are conducting a range of activities including marriage education and enrichment programs specifically designed for existing couples, including married couples, engaged couples, and individuals interested in marriage. Responsible Fatherhood programs target all fathers, including non-custodial parents and fathers who have or will soon reenter their communities from incarceration.

What are we paying Catholic Charities of Wichita, KS to do with almost $1.5 million of your tax dollars?

The Healthy Marriage Program serves 60 grantees and 73,346 participants; the Responsible Fatherhood program serves 55 grantees and 14,894 participants; and the Fatherhood Ex-Prisoner Reentry Pilot Project serves 4 grantees and 945 participants.

Grants totaled nearly $60 million in one year alone!

I did find a list of grant recipients which includes some of our usual resettlement contractors here for 2011, but haven’t the time or patience to search for newer lists of who is receiving millions of tax dollars—just short of $60 million in this one year!  Be sure to look down the whole list.
I wonder if these mostly non-profits are ever audited???  I doubt it.
Readers are always asking what can we do?
Well, here is one thing,  find one of these grant recipients located near you and find out exactly what they are doing with hundreds of thousands of dollars per agency to ‘help the children.’
Become like the investigative journalists of old!
More tomorrow or later this week on other outrageous grants (culturally appropriate daycare, refugee matched savings accounts, refugee gardening projects, etc.).

Others, including Allen West, pick up Nashville schools to teach Arabic

I love to see stories we have posted here at RRW go out to even broader audiences. Be sure to see Daniel Horowitz writing at Conservative Review yesterday to see one such story.  Another is this one about Nashville public schools announcing that Arabic will be taught in 6 schools there in the next school year.

Follow Allen West on facebook:

See our Nashville story, here, which received thousands of hits in one 24 hour period last week.
From former Congressman Allen West who asks some very good questions:

…. the schools were chosen because there’s a high number of native Arabic speakers in the neighborhood. Why exactly do they need Arabic lessons? Wouldn’t English be more appropriate?

And why is it the public school’s role to help keep students “connected to their native culture?” I thought that was their parents’ role. But I’m old fashioned that way.

I thought the purpose of the American public school system was to keep Americans connected to their American culture. But I guess I’m old fashioned that way too.

Now perhaps none of this is cause for any sort of concern whatsoever, except if you dig a little bit, you’ll find an awful lot of imams in Tennessee with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

How can you help, especially if you live in Tennessee?  Go here to the ‘tn council for political justice’ and see what you can do!
By the way, we have an extensive archive, in fact a special category just on Nashville’ one of the hottest refugee resettlement sites in the nation that has also become a well-developed “pocket of resistance.”

Invasion of Europe news: "Bloody pitched battle" in Calais migrant camp

We’ve written often about the port city of Calais, France where illegal migrants from Africa and the Middle East are piling up in hopes of illegally entering the UK where they expect to get welfare goodies gratis of the Brits.
Remember!   If they are legitimate asylum seekers they are required to apply for asylum in the first safe country they reach—in France or wherever they first landed in Europe.  Instead thousands of them make their way to Calais and some are successful in getting across the English Channel and reaching their Nirvana.
This is not the first time violence has broken out between ethnic groups and with the police.  See our Calais archive by clicking here.

Witnesses said that groups of Eritrean and Sudanese men fought each other with knives, stones and metal bars in the most alarming incident since the camp was opened by the French government two months ago.

From the UK Express (hat tip: Joanne).  Be sure to visit the article because there is more with lots of photos.

Twenty-four migrants were seriously injured and many more hurt during the bloody pitched battle, which raged for more than six hours before the gangs were dispersed by heavily armed riot police.

Witnesses reported that knives, metal bars and wooden truncheons were used by the two rival factions, who also set fire to several huts at a notorious migrant camp dubbed ‘The New Jungle’.

The gangs, one made up of Eritreans and the other Sudanese, reportedly clashed after a row over access to the best ferry smuggling routes to England boiled over.

Calais-based newspaper Nord Littoral dubbed the brawl a “night of violence” and reported that the vicious fight lasted from midnight until around 6am this morning.

Two squads of France’s fearsome CRS riot police rushed to the scene, close to the town’s Jules Ferry Centre, where a vast illegal camp stretches across sand dunes into the port town.

Calais Mayor Natasha Bouchart: It is all the Brits’ fault!

The horrific brawl was the second serious disturbance at the notorious migrant camp in a matter of days.


News of the mass outbreak of violence comes just a week after it emerged that British lorry drivers are boycotting Calais because they fear “somebody will be killed” by illegal immigrants desperate to get into the UK.


Calais mayor Natasha Bouchart has previously sparked controversy by stating that so many migrants camp in Calais because they are desperate to get to the UK to take advantage of its generous benefits system.

She said: “They want to go to England because they can expect better conditions on arrival there than anywhere else in Europe or even internationally.

“Calais is a hostage to the British. The migrants come here to get to Britain.”

For all of our coverage of the ‘Invasion of Europe’ go here.
Don’t forget, it was the UK Labor Party and its leaders like the Miliband brothers who created the “generous benefits system” for immigrants in the first place!   David Miliband is now the head honcho at the US resettlement contractor, the International Rescue Committee, and leading the effort (with the blessing of George Soros) to bring 65,000 Syrians to America ASAP!  14 Senators, dubbed the ‘Jihad Caucus,’ are urging Obama to bring in the 65,000 before he leaves office.

CAIR joins the gang to celebrate Immigrant Heritage Month (to change America by changing the people?)

CAIR logoBefore you read CAIR’s press release check out the gang at  Some of CAIR’s partners include:  LaRaza, Welcoming America, SEIU, International Rescue Committee and facebook There are also colleges, public libraries and Chambers of Commerce in the group.
They are gathering immigrant “stories.”  If you haven’t noticed, leftwing community organizers love telling heartwarming STORIES.  The stories are central to their media campaign.  They are masters at this storytelling and have boatloads of money from rich foundations to do it.
There is no doubt that some immigrants shaped America in a positive way, but that was then and this is now and the numbers are too great and some of the ethnic groups we are inviting now have no intention of ever assimilating. They are here to change America!
It is our job to balance the news, to make sure the public knows the not-so-heartwarming stories as well and to speak for the average American citizen and worker who sees his or her job and unique American culture being lost!
Here is what CAIR says (hat tip: Robin):

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 5/28/15) – Today the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization, announced its support of the second-annual Immigrant Heritage Month, an initiative to partner community organizations, elected officials, corporations, artists, and thought leaders to gather and share inspirational stories of American immigrants.

Immigrant-Heritage-Month“While nearly eight in ten American Muslims are immigrants, the history of United States Muslim immigration goes back more than 400 years. As the most racially-diverse religious group in the U.S., we celebrate the diversity of the American Muslim immigrant experience and encourage community members to participate in Immigrant Heritage Month and share their story of how they came to be U.S. citizens,” said CAIR Government Affairs Manager Robert McCaw.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is on the same team as CAIR/Hamas!

“America is a nation of immigrants. This is – and always has been – a source of incredible strength that unifies us all,” said Todd Schulte, President of “The strength, sacrifice, and contributions of the Muslim immigrant community helped build this great nation. To honor that, our goal with Immigrant Heritage Month this June is to highlight the intersections our immigrant experience and illuminate how each individual journey has been instrumental to the formation, foundation, and ongoing strength of the United States of America.”

Supporters are encouraged to connect with Immigrant Heritage Month through social media or events in their city and share their own unique immigration story.

Visit ‘’ for more information on how to share your story and learn more about our nationwide effort.

About, a non-profit organization, is dedicated to celebrating a United States that is fueled by immigrants from around the world. Immigrant Heritage Month honors the ways in which America and the immigrants who have built our country are linked in a shared, productive history.

CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

Temporary Protected Status for Yemeni nationals
While I visited CAIR’s website, I noticed they, and many other Arab-American groups, petitioned the US Department of Homeland Security for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Yemenis in the US.  I am mentioning this to remind you that there are many other legal immigration programs that must be reformed or abolished!  TPS is a scam!
