Poland: No Syrian refugees for us!

In ‘Invasion of Europe’ news, maybe Poland will be one of the few European countries to save itself….

In one of the world’s most significant battles, Polish warriors, although outnumbered, defeated the Turks to save Europe from Muslim control in the Battle of Vienna in 1683. Painting here: http://devjohnson.deviantart.com/art/The-battle-of-Vienna-1683-417449102

From the Guardian which calls their position “baffling” and “pungent:”

“We don’t want terrorists here,” the Polish pensioner says, when asked about EU plans to resettle refugees more broadly across the continent. “Have you seen what they’re doing in the west?”

It’s a popular view here, if a baffling one. Poland is little affected by the refugee crisis in Europe, and accepts vanishingly small numbers of migrants. And yet the country has some of the most pungent views on immigration on the continent. A recent survey for the television station TVN found that two-thirds of Poles share the same hostility towards immigrants expressed by the Warsaw grandmother cited above.

According to a study in 2013 by the Centre for Research on Prejudice – a professional academic centre at the University of Warsaw – as many as 69% of Poles do not want non-white people living in their country.

And remember readers, it was the Polish military that saved Christian Europe from the invasion of the continent by the Ottoman (Muslim) invaders in 1683.  Isn’t it true that those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it?
There wouldn’t be any snooty Guardian today if it weren’t for the Poles.

Add one more to the list of countries whose nationals can stay in the US forever—Nepal

The Temporary Protected Status (TPS) category, a legal immigration program, is anything but temporary.  The Obama Administration has just added Nepal to its list of countries whose citizens can stay as temporary refugees, work (and probably vote!) here forever because the temporary designation is simply extended every time it expires.

I say this repeatedly, but when your friends (or your Member of Congress) says legal immigration is good, remember TPS and know that they don’t know what they are talking about.

The gist of it is that we would be considered bad people if we sent nationals back to their home country in the middle of a crisis, but the problem is that ten years or more after the crisis is long over, we simply extend their stay as they wait for the Obama/Republican amnesty.  The temporary designation is a sham!
From NBC News:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has granted Nepal Temporary Protected Status (TPS) under the Immigration and Nationality Act following the devastation of the massive 7.8-magnitude earthquake of April 25 and subsequent earthquakes and aftershocks which are estimated to have killed over 5,200 people, injured more than 12,500 people, and displaced approximately 2.8 million people.

This designation will allow approximately 10,000 to 25,000 Nepali nationals currently in the United States to stay and to work until December 2016, even if their visas expire, without threat of being detained or deported.

They will be permitted to send money out of the country (called remittances) which is a drain on OUR economy!  In 2012, $123,273,000,000 left the US via remittances to the third world.  The next time you see one of those studies being promoted by the likes of ‘Welcoming America’ about how immigrants boost the local economy, ask if they included remittances leaving America in their study!

In addition to safety concerns, being authorized to work in the United States will allow Nepali nationals to work and send money back to Nepal to help the country rebuild.

Other countries which have been granted TPS in the past due to ongoing armed conflict, environmental disasters, and other extraordinary conditions include Haiti, Honduras, El Salvador, and Syria.

By the way, I heard recently that there are up to 25,000 Syrians in the US eligible to stay under TPS.

For a laugh, check this out:   Hondurans were given TPS in 1999!  Salvadorans in 2001 and Haitians in 2011.   So much for TEMPORARY!

There is an application in for Yemen too!

PA Rep. Barletta worried about Syrian refugees, tells local audience

I have a ton of catching up to do after being out in California for a week.  So, let’s see if I can post on a bunch of topics and not say too much!
Pennsylvania Republican Congressman Lou Barletta chose to talk about the threat posed by Syrian refugees entering the US to a local audience in Hazelton, PA.  Barletta is on the House Homeland Security Committee that heard testimony, here, the week before last.

Rep Lou Barletta

Here is some of what he had to say from the Times-Leader:

HAZLETON — The city’s native son returned Wednesday to talk about threats at home.

U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Hazleton, said he enjoys coming home and he got to renew friendships with about 50 members of the Hazleton Rotary Club at Genetti’s on Route 309.


The issue of illegal immigration brought Barletta to the national stage. When he was mayor of Hazleton, Barletta felt his city faced a serious financial dilemma because of illegal immigrants residing in the city but not paying taxes.

Barletta contended that his city’s population doubled while its tax revenue stayed the same.


Barletta said he has expressed concern about Syrian refugees being admitted to the U.S. At a recent House Homeland Security Committee hearing he quizzed experts on the extent of U.S. intelligence gathering capabilities while the State Department considers admitting up to 2,000 Syrian refugees in the coming year.  [For new readers, there is a push on to admit 65,000 Syrians before Obama leaves office—ed]

At that hearing, Barletta noted that Syria is a hotbed for terrorism, and he questioned witnesses at the hearing regarding America’s ability to properly vet those under consideration for refugee status and relocation to the the United States.

Barletta said the United States has to take a serious stand on the issue. He also said any U.S. citizen who goes to Syria to train with ISIS should not be allowed back into the country.

“They are traitors,” he said. “And traitors should not be allowed to come back into this country.”

By the way, most of those going to train with ISIS are immigrants we ‘welcomed’ to America at one point in time.
There is more.
I’m posting this to remind readers that your Member of Congress is home in the district for the 4th of July holiday and it is a good time to discuss refugee resettlement with them.  Every little way you can throw a shoe in the machinery of this government is useful!
Pennsylvania is rapidly becoming a leading refugee resettlement state.
