The number one resettlement state in America is Texas (primer part I)

Update June 9th:  Part III is here.  It is for everyone, not just Texans!
Update June 8th:  Part II is here.
I’m doing some research on Texas because I will be going there later this week.  There is so much material on the number one resettlement state so I plan to post a little every day until I leave.  For those of you who will be attending a gathering in Dallas, LOL!, this is your homework assignment!  You will be tested!
Global Nation mapIn Fiscal year 2014, Texas resettled 7,234 refugees.  However, that doesn’t tell the whole story because according to the Texas Dept. of State Health Services (an excellent source of information on refugees in Texas), the actual number of migrants legally being treated as refugees last year was really 12,800 (up 24% from the previous year!).
The website also tells you which counties got the most refugees.
The 12,800 includes refugees, asylees, parolees, special immigrant visa holders (these are Afghans and Iraqis), and victims of trafficking.
They hailed from 58 countries (therefore Texas taxpayers are on the hook for many expensive translators—gratis a Bill Clinton executive order—for all sorts of reasons—access to health care, school system problems and the criminal justice system).
When I went to several different sources, I find that over 150,000 refugees have been resettled in Texas since 1983, and that number doesn’t include secondary migrants from other states (Dallas County got the most secondary migrants last year–60% of all those arriving in Texas).
And, of course, it doesn’t include all of the children produced in three decades! Nor does it include the thousands of ‘unaccompanied alien children’ that may not have been distributed around the nation from last year’s border invasion.  Obama would like nothing more than to have them declared “refugees” as well (refugees get all forms of welfare upon arrival!).

Texas ranking
These numbers do not include all of the other categories of ‘refugees’ cared for by local resettlement contractors and your tax dollars.

The top resettlement cities in Texas are (resettlement is not limited to these sites, dozens and dozens of smaller cities and towns are receiving refugees):




Corpus Christi


El Paso

Fort Worth


San Antonio

For new readers, you might want to have a look at our archive on Amarillo which has developed into a ‘pocket of resistance’ as the mayor there has asked the federal government to slow the flow since the school system is suffering with the influx of non-English speaking children many of whom are illiterate in their own language.  The meatpacking industry is responsible for much of the resettlement to Amarillo (hunger for cheap labor!).
The top nations from which Texas received refugees in 2014 were in this order:  Iraq, Cuba, Burma, Afghanistan, and tied for 5th place Somalia and Bhutan(Nepal).

So when did Texas move into the number one spot in the nation?

For years and years other states ranked above Texas including California, New York and Florida.  According to this very cool graph (above right), it was in 2011 that Texas gained this dubious distinction.
And, if you are wondering why the number dipped in 2011, this is why:  That year it was learned that Iraqi terrorists disguised as refugees were arrested in Kentucky.  Turns out the pair had lied (can you believe it, they lied!) on their refugee application and it was only when they were found to be planning on helping Al-Qaeda in Iraq was it discovered that one of them had left fingerprints on an IED shard that was warehoused by the US military.  The shard came from an IED that had killed Pennsylvania National Guard troops.  They are in prison for life.
The arrest threw the Refugee Admissions Program of the US State Department into chaos because they had to re-screen thousands and thousands of Iraqis headed to America.  Iraqis make up the largest ethnic group we are admitting to America now at a rate of about 20,000 a year.  The majority are Muslims (both Shiites and Sunnis as we import their centuries old squabble to your towns!).

That is enough for today.  Here is your homework assignment:

In order to question this 35-year-old legal immigration program, you must first get the facts!
* Read our Fact Sheet, here.  Open and read all the links in this post!
* Go to the Texas Department of State Health Services website and learn all you can about the refugees coming to Texas.  Don’t miss the stats on their health conditions (refugees are admitted with TB, HepB, HIV and parasites).
* You have a State Refugee Coordinator and her name is Caitriona Lyons (she is Irish, btw), call her and ask her to direct you to the Texas refugee plan.  Here is a description of the plan and the legal requirement that every state have one (and they must keep it current).  Ask her to direct you to it and read it!
Remember in Texas your governor does have a say in what happens with refugee resettlement!  Where has he been?
Here is a whole list of State Coordinators in case others of you want to start your research!  Scroll down to Texas for Ms. Lyons contact information.
There will be further information and more homework tomorrow!

Invasion of Europe: UK says 500,000 migrants waiting to make Mediterranean crossing into Europe

We should call the Invasion of Europe Gadhafi’s Revenge!

I warned you!

The former Libyan leader (before his untimely “demise” at the hands of a coalition of French, British and American smart people) warned that Europe would be conquered, not with guns and swords, but with an invasion by masses of humanity overwhelming the continent from Africa and the Middle East.  That is exactly what is happening.
LOL! I’m not going to let readers forget the role Obama’s gals played in this disaster!  Hillary, Susan Rice and Samantha Power were after Gaddafi’s head, and look what they got!
We live in interesting times (Chinese curse?).
Everyone must leave some letter for your grandchildren and great grandchildren about how you witnessed the end of western civilization in Europe because someone else will be writing the history of Europe (in Arabic).
This is an AP story at Earthlink (hat tip: Chaz).  Emphasis is mine:

ROME (AP) — Naval vessels from Italy, Britain, Ireland and other countries steamed toward the waters off Libya on Saturday to rescue the latest wave of migrants from smugglers’ boats. British authorities warned that up to 500,000 people could attempt the perilous crossing this summer.

Capt. Nick Cooke-Priest, on the British warship HMS Bulwark, told reporters aboard: “Indications are there that there are 450,000 to 500,000 migrants in Libya who are waiting at the border” for voyage from the North African country’s Mediterranean coast in hopes of reaching Italian shores.

Also aboard the Bulwark, part of a multi-nation patrol and rescue force, was British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon. “We could see hundreds of thousands trying to cross this summer,” Fallon told reporters who asked about the captain’s half-million figure.

During Saturday, a total of 3,480 migrants had been safely rescued in 15 separate operations, the Italian coast guard said. Calls for help went out via satellite phone earlier in the day from the smugglers boats, which included six rubber dinghies and nine fishing boats, all some 45 miles (72 kilometers) off the Libyan shoreline, the coast guard statement said.

Pitching in to save the migrants were Italian coast guard, navy and border police boats and aircraft, a tug boat, two German military ships, the Hessen and the Berlin, and an Irish naval ship LE Eithne.


Italian authorities investigating the Libya-based smuggling operations say reliable intelligence is hard to come by, given that Western diplomats have long left Libya, wracked by violence following the 2011 demise of the Moammar Gadhafi regime. Rival governments command different parts of the country, and tribal and militia clashes aggravate the chaos.

With every boat rescue the word goes back to Africa—launch the next boat.

There is no sign that any European ‘leader’ has the spine (or other body part!) to do what Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott says must be done—turn the boats back to the North African coast!

Regarding the spelling of Moammar Gadhafi’s name:  We have used different spellings here at RRW mostly due to whatever spelling is being used in the news story we are reporting at the time.

Syrian youths getting in to US as "academic refugees"

They may not have transcripts, but some American colleges are taking Syrian “students” to supposedly educate them to return and re-build Syria (yeh, sure!).
From (hat tip: Julia).  The ‘students’ featured here are at Emporia State University in Emporia, KS.
I haven’t heard much from Emporia since late 2007 and early 2008 when they had a huge Somali refugee problem there.  The Somalis had been brought in by Tyson Foods and were busy developing a Somali enclave in town.  Ultimately, the controversy got too heated and Tyson Foods actually closed the plant.  We covered it so extensively that we created an entire category just for Emporia, here.   BTW, it was the first time we came to understand the role of meatpackers working with refugee contractors to change small town America But I digress…
Here is the news about Syrian ‘students’ being placed in US colleges:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Brothers Molham and Mohammad Kayali spray-painted anti-government graffiti around Aleppo University in northern Syria in early 2012 and held up flags in protest against President Bashar al Assad’s government. Worried that their lives were in danger, they gave up on school and fled to Turkey in September 2012.

They were reunited last year with their younger brother, Ebrahim, at Emporia State University, a small school in Kansas, joining among about 700 “academic refugees” now in the U.S. who either fled from the long-running violent conflict, attended universities that have closed or couldn’t safely travel to schools in dangerous areas.


The New York-based Institute of International Education has helped organize a consortium of mostly U.S. and Portuguese schools and has provided 158 scholarships and 89 emergency grants to Syrian students, according to Daniela Kaisth, a vice president with the institute. Similar efforts were made to help Iraqi students after the U.S.-led invasion.

The latest data shows that the number of Syrian students attending U.S. universities swelled from 424 students in 2009-10 to 693 students in 2013-14, according to the institute’s Open Doors Report on International Education Exchange, published in partnership with the U.S. Department of State.

Some of the schools in the consortium are Emporia State, the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, Monmouth College in Illinois, and Tufts University in Massachusetts.

Some enterprising investigative blogger should look into the Institute of International Education.  I wouldn’t be surprised to find George Soros and some of his ilk behind it somewhere.
Incidentally, if we can’t screen Syrian refugees, as the FBI recently told Congress, how are we screening Syrian college students?
