In Minnesota, refugee resettlement characterized as form of slavery

In an interesting coincidence, yesterday we posted a guest column from ‘Idaho Patriot’ about refugee resettlement as modern-day slavery and then right on the heels of that we see the same theme echoed in Minnesota—where the ‘Pockets of Resistance’ are getting organized and expanding.
Here is an article at the Morrison County Record about a concerned private citizen who is taking his own personal time to research and speak about what he is learning.
Article entitled: Speaker in Little Falls: Illegal immigrant, refugee resettlement done as a form of slavery.

Ron Brantsner, with the former Minutemen Civil Defense volunteer border watch group, was in Little Falls July 23. He was invited to the area to speak about how corporations and volunteer agencies bring illegal immigrants and refugees to Minnesota as a form of “slavery,” to do jobs Americans wouldn’t do, for low wages.

Brantsner, formerly of Minnesota, now has a residence in California.

Invited by “a gentleman out of Little Falls,” Brantsner said, “I don’t contact anybody. People reach out to me. I don’t go solicit this, I don’t get paid for this, I don’t belong to any organizations.

“When I get invited, I’m a normal everyday citizen just livin’ the dream,” he said.

Brantsner told the group that with funding from the federal government, the volunteer agencies or “Volags” as he called them, had targeted Minnesota because of the generous welfare benefits in the state. The targeted areas were those where poultry processing plants, and meat packing plants were located, he said.

Brantsner said once illegal immigrants and refugees move into a community, its Social Services, health care and educational resources are overwhelmed, with counties and taxpayers footing the tax burden.

He went on to discuss the role of large foundation grants.  The foundations are connected with BIG MEAT working to colonize communities for their own selfish cheap labor needs.
Read it all.
Great business model isn’t it?  State and local taxpayers help pick up the tab when salaries are too low to support large immigrant families.
This post is archived in our new ‘Pockets of Resistance’ category so that others of you might know, and get inspiration, about what your fellow Americans are doing to save America!  There are many more volunteers like Ron Brantsner trying to get the word out on their own dime.  Meanwhile the pro-Open Borders side is well-funded thanks to big business, the Chamber of Commerce and Leftwing foundations.

Virginia: Immigration turning another red state blue

There is an informative article at Breitbart, thanks to Julia (LOL! not the same Julia as the author of this article) for sending it, that pretty much confirms what I have been hearing anecdotally about Virginia.

Eric Cantor
Former Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor, who wanted more immigrant labor for Virginia and the country, was ousted from office largely because of his opponent’s bravery in deflecting arrows within his own party and taking on the immigration issue. Hint to Donald Trump!

I have no time this morning to go into it in any great detail, but here is how Breitbart writer, Julia Hahn begins:

The birthplace and final resting place of George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson—and once one of the most reliably-red of red states—is being rapidly turned into a progressive stronghold.

These changes are not the result of an inside agency, or a natural evolution in political thinking, but rather the result of one of the most impactful yet least-discussed policies of the federal government.

Each year the federal government prints millions of visas and distributes these admission tickets to the poorest and least-developed nations in the world.


A census study entitled “Immigrants in Virginia,” released by University of Virginia (UVA) researchers, documented the phenomenon: “Until 1970, only 1 in 100 Virginians was born outside of the United States; by 2012, 1 in every 9 Virginians is foreign-born.”

Republicans helping to make it happen!

While the influence of conservative voters in the Commonwealth continues to diminish, it is ironically Republican officials in Virginia who have led the push to resettle even larger numbers of immigrants inside the state. Former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, for instance, in the months before his titanic fall from power, engineered the effort to provide more labor to Virginia employers through foreign worker visas.

Former-executive director of the Virginia Republican Party, Shaun Kenney, described conservatives who wanted to trim the ongoing resettlement efforts as “nativists” who “have no home in the modern Republican Party,” thundering, “drive ‘em out.” Ironically, Kenney’s immigration policies are having that exact effect.

There is much more, continue reading here.
Take heart, ‘Pockets of resistance’ are forming in Virginia, more on that later.

RRW weekly roundup for week ending July 25, 2015

I’m late, I know, but I just got lazy this weekend.  This is my charitable work after all, so I figure I can goof off now and again. Right!
This morning I’m waking up to news that Donald Trump may have shot his campaign in the foot when he slipped into the mumbo-jumbo about pathways to citizenship for illegals last week.  See Daniel Greenfield here.  It is one thing to stand up for the American people with his broad brush approach up to now, but he must begin to understand the issues in a deeper way (pretty quickly) or his lack of understanding will show on the debate stage on August 6th.
If I could tell Mr. Trump what to do, I would tell him to consult the experts and study—morning, noon, and night—from now until August 6th!
I’m digressing.  Here are our Top Three Posts of last week (Top daily posts are in the right hand side bar).

1) How did Chattanooga shooter’s family get here?

2) Center for Security Policy releases ‘Red-Green Axis: the agenda to erase America!’

3) Refugee Resettlement Fact Sheet

I’m interested to see that our Fact Sheet is back in the top three, but we really need to update it …one of these days!
Here are our Top Ten Countries from which readers arrived at RRW last week (excluding the US):





New Zealand






* Last week I commented about Turkey making the top ten and a reader from Turkey, who says he/she is interviewing prospective refugees to be sent to the US, commented saying he/she is responsible for some of those visitors from Turkey.  I think you should read the comments and my responses, here.  It became pretty clear that whoever this is working for a non-profit contractor interviewing refugees to come to America holds a low regard for Christians as he gloats:

(Btw, Christians make up about 30% of Middle Eastern refugees I currently process. Bad newz for you though: Above half are illiterate and suffer from congenital diseases observed in much higher frequencies than in rest of Iraq and Syria. Hold on to your local health budget folks! Fellow Christians are coming!)

For new readers, please visit a recent roundup here for instructions on how to make the most out of your visits to RRW.
One last thing, follow me on twitter.  I am trying to use that social media format to get stories out that are related to this issue which I don’t have time to post on, and I also tweet all of my posts if you don’t want to subscribe.  I’m here @refugeewatcher.
