We learn that Irish immigrants at one time were as dangerous for America as Islamic terrorists and that refugee kids are cute!
I just want to give you two quotes from the woman who is at the top of the food chain when it comes to bringing third worlders to your towns. Anne Richard is the Asst. Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration. She is one of several government employees involved with refugee resettlement who move in and out of government as employees first of federal contractors. (She was previously a VP at the International Rescue Committee.)
This is an interview with NPR where she knows her emotion-driven audience:
First, while responding to questions about terrorists getting in to the US as Syrian refugees, she equates the situation now with when the Irish came to America in large numbers (an aside: always remember that when the great waves of Irish came, they could not access welfare!).
Here she suggests that fear of them at the time is on the same level as our fear of ISIS today.
RICHARD: No, I think we’re trying to put together the best program possible. What I worry about the political discussion is it endangers this American tradition. And we have seen in the past that, you know, the Irish were too dangerous to bring in because they were going to be drunkards and hotheaded and backward.
And, further along in the interview, she demonstrates that she is driven by emotion (or at least trained to use that appeal)!
To me, to us, this is about being clear-eyed about the economic and social welfare of our communities. This is about public policy decision-making. This is about the costs to our economy. This is about whether there are unemployed Americans seeking work. This is not about whether immigrants are nice people or their kids are cute!
One of their favorite tricks (watch for it in your community) when you question the wisdom of inviting large numbers of impoverished people to your town, is that they want to drag out the poor refugees/immigrants as pawns to parade them before you in order to pull on your heart strings.
Here is Richard’s revealing comment to NPR:
RICHARD: Well, I meet a lot of refugees. And I find that when people meet refugees, they get it. They get the fact that these are families and that these are people who are really struggling and that they are resilient because they’ve already survived getting out of their countries. And so I think that Americans need to see more of the faces of refugees like I have. When you meet the individuals, the families, they have kids that are cute. They have grandparents who are wise. They have parents who are caring and want to help everybody.
I am sure all of those things are true, but they still don’t stack up to a clear-eyed economic analysis about whether mass migration of very needy people is good for American wise grandparents, caring parents, and cute children! One more thought (I’m laughing when I think of it!): Imagine the next time there is a refugee-promoting meeting in your town, and you bring out some impoverished senior citizens, some out of work vets, a few disabled Americans in need of subsidized housing and some poor/hungry American children to demonstrate your point. Can you imagine the howls of outrage on the other side that we might play their same game!
Just yesterday we reportedthat Syrian refugees resettled in Memphis, TN are dumpster diving because they don’t have jobs and apparently their resettlement agency (a contractor of the federal government) doesn’t raise enough private charitable money to help them!
Tennessee legislators have had enough of Washington making decisions for Tennessee taxpayers and are moving a resolution through the legislative process that in the end could result in a states’ rights lawsuit against the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program. Here is the latest from Michael Patrick Leahy writing for Breitbart:
NASHVILLE, Tennessee–The Tennessee General Assembly is on track to sue the federal government over the refugee resettlement program on Tenth Amendment grounds after Senate Joint Resolution 467 cleared its last substantive hurdle in the Tennessee House Finance Committee.
The resolution sailed through the committee on a voice vote, and is now headed to the Calendar and Rules Committee, which will schedule a vote on the floor of the House of Representatives some time during the next seven days. The resolution is expected to pass in a landslide, as 74 of the House’s 99 members have already signed on as sponsors.
In February, the resolution easily passed the State Senate by a 27 to 5 margin.
“As SJR 467 is moving forward, other states will read our actions. I am pleased that seventy-four of my colleagues believe wholeheartedly that Tennessee is responsible for asserting our state’s sovereignty rights under the Tenth Amendment,” State Rep. Terri Lynn Weaver (R-Lancaster), the sponsor of the resolution in the House, tells Breitbart News.
“We have seen unprecedented federal overreach during the Obama administration. We need clarity and definition concerning the relationship between the federal government and our state when it comes to appropriations to pay for the federal Refugee Resettlement Program,” Weaver adds.
It is now a virtual certainty that the Tennessee General Assembly will file the lawsuit in federal court, as the Thomas More Law Center, a well-respected conservative public interest law firm, has said it will represent the state of Tennessee at no cost,even if Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery chooses not to litigate the case.
Readers, this is not a lawsuit only for Tennessee. If you live in one of these so-called ‘Wilson-Fish’ states, your state too could be a plaintiff (because of the way the program has been structured in these states)…..
…..if your governor had guts!
Wilson Fish states: Alaska, Alabama, Colorado, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nevada, South Dakota, North Dakota, Tennessee and Vermont.

Trending in Europe: Polygamy, Child Brides, and Female Genital Mutilation
Do you ever wonder what America will look like in a few decades? Just look to Europe.
Even though the United States is further behind in the process, American politicians are following Europe with the exact same policies.
As an American expat living in Europe, let me give you a first-hand account of the cultural changes we see unfolding in European society. Because this theme is so big, I’ll only focus on three disturbing topics most of us would rather not discuss: polygamy, child brides, and female genital mutilation. These trends are spreading throughout Europe as a direct result of immigration polices and demographic changes.
The Big Myth
First we need to name the big myth that underpins all of this insanity. It’s the idea that all refugees/immigrants arriving in our country will adopt Western values. We hear this from Barack Obama, Angela Merkel in Germany, and David Cameron in Great Britain. But it’s a lie. Anyone who spends a day in Brussels, an afternoon in Frankfurt, or a weekend in Stockholm knows the real truth. Tragically in Europe, it appears that integration is a myth.
Profiting from Polygamy
In Britain, a Muslim men can take multiple wives and have numerous children with each wife because everything will be paid for by the welfare system. These women are often forced into contracted marriages. Here’s how the process works, using a hypothetical example:
A Muslim man arrives in London and is granted asylum. The next year 4-8 of his family members arrive through family reunification. Then he arranges a marriage through family in Pakistan. His new wife arrives from Pakistan and she eventually has five children. She is unemployed and they receive generous welfare benefits. A few years later the man marries another woman from Pakistan and repeats the same process. Using this strategy the family can explode to 15 or more people, with each wife entitled to housing and benefits by the British taxpayers. With the growing strength of the Muslim community throughout Europe, Sharia law and legalized polygamy are now accepted norms.
If you think this is an exaggeration, you can read all about this trend unfolding not only in the Britain, but all over Europe:
“The multiple marriages have been encouraged by changes made to the British welfare system by the previous Labour government, which allowed Muslim immigrants to have a second, third or fourth wife (and in some cases five or more) treated as a single mother who can get a house and an array of other state payments for herself and her children.” [August 2012 Report]
“The “blind eye” turned towards polygamy in Britain – and in France, Belgiumand Germany – has ensured that some Muslim men are having upwards of 20 children by multiple wives, almost always at the state’s expense.” [November 2015 Report]
The influx of refugees has exposed another cultural schism between Islam and Western civilization. You would think that in countries such as Denmark, the Netherlands, and Norway, we would not be struggling the issue of child brides. But here we are in 2016 discussing this topic.
Numerous asylum seekers are arriving in Europe with wives who are below the age of sexual consent. One 23 year old Muslim man arrived with his 11 year old wife and 18 month old child. It’s a trend we see throughout Europe, reflecting the accepted practice in the Muslim world. Selling little girls as young as eight years old into marriage is a practice in Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries.
Muslim men having child brides is pure Islam. According to the Sira, Mohammed’s favorite wife was Aisha. She was six years old when she was officially contracted into marriage with Mohammed, and nine when she was brought into Mohammed’s sex harem. Mohammed was 53 years old at that time. The Hadith even describes how Mohammed allowed her to bring dolls into the sex harem because she was so young (Hadith; Muslim:177).
The Sickening Practice of Female Genital Mutilation
Here’s another topic that nobody, including me, wants to discuss in 2016 Western civilization. But thanks to our immigration policies and the Islamization of the West, female genital mutilation is increasingly practiced in our society and we need to face the uncomfortable facts. Female genital mutilation (FGM) includes “cutting off the female’s clitoris or labia and sometimes sewing the vagina shut” to prevent intercourse. FGM is practiced in much of Islamic society and parts of Africa.
Female genital mutilation is a growing problem in Europe. In 2003 the British government passed the “Female Genital Mutilation Act of 2003” to mitigate the spread of this barbaric practice. An official European parliament report estimates over “500,000 women and girls in Europe are living with female genital mutilation and an estimated 180,000 girls are at risk… [but] these figures are underestimated and do not take into account second-generation or undocumented migrants.”
The problem is so common in multicultural Germany, Berlin is now home to Europe’s first clinic devoted to treating victims of FGM.
Female genital mutilation is also part of Islamic culture. The practice is referenced in the Sira, which describes a man named Hamza who was the “son of a clitoris cutter” (Ishaq: 557). The Hadith assumes both men and women are “circumscised” as it describes bathing after “their circumscised genitalia touch” in intercourse (Muslim: 003,0684). Female genital mutilation was a common practice in 7th century Arabia, and now also 21st century Europe.
Western Civilization or Mass Immigration?
An entire encyclopedia could be written on the cultural changes we see unfolding in Europe. Literally every aspect of society is slowly changing, from big cities to small villages. Ancient churches are being closed and replaced with mosques and “Islamic education centers.” German bakeries are closed and replaced with “Doner Kebab” shops on every corner. And of course, you see the demographic changes everywhere: an older European society is slowly dying out and being replaced by a younger Muslim society.
My fellow Americans, the choice is yours. You can either choose to keep your society, civilization, and way of life, or you can choose multiculturalism in the form of mass immigration, but you can’t have both. If you want to see what your future looks like if you choose the latter, just turn your attention to Europe. As Nigel Farage of the UK Independence Party says, “Europe is burning.” You don’t have to make the same mistakes.

Editor:Since I don’t know how much subscriber overlap there is between my other blogAmerican Resistance 2016! and RRW, I thought this 6 minute news clip was worth posting in both places so that no one misses it! Progress is being made by alternative media breaking through the power of the corporate media!
Wow! People across the heartland of America are beginning to understand what is happening to them!
This is a must-watch video of a local TV news reporter exposing the Partnership for a New American Economy’s joint effort with Open Borders activists like Welcoming America and the US Refugee Admissions Programto make sure a steady supply of cheap labor is distributed to your towns and cities.
Also exposed is a classic and pernicious campaign that is underway to manipulate public opinion!
For background see our post from January (at American Resistance 2016) about Rupert Murdoch and his rich elitist pals at the Partnership for a New American Economy.
And, then see our post just last week here at Refugee Resettlement Watch about the selection of the 20 cities where citizens are going to get the full-court propaganda press to “welcome” their replacement population.
See also Leo Hohmann’s more detailed report on what these big-wigs have planned for 20 cities. This is what I said at WND:
“They want to manipulate the minds of the community and get Americans to believe mass immigration is going to be good for them, that they’re all going to benefit from the influx of more and more migrants,” said Ann Corcoran, author of the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog. “It’s a mind game to soften up the receiving communities.”
