Since readers seem to have liked previous posts onSyriansandSomalisresettled in the US in FY2016, I thought you might like to see how the Iraqi flow is going. I’m surprised to see that the number is much lower than last year. Does that mean we are approaching a point where we have pretty well cleared Iraq of anyone who wants to come to the US?
We have been bringing, on average, about 15,000 Iraqis a year since Obama took office.
As of March 31st (the halfway point in the fiscal year), we invited (only) 4,194 Iraqis to come and live in your towns (data here). That is way down!!!
Here is the map of where they’ve been placed since October 1, 2015 (source: Refugee Processing Center):
The top ten states for Iraqi resettlement are these (they usually place them where there are already a large number of a specific ethnic group because they know they like to live with their own kind of people, and that is o.k. for them, but not for you! You would be racist if you expressed a similar desire—to live with your kind of people!):
Surprisingly Nebraska comes in for honorable mention with 109.
Since the vast majority are Muslims (82%), the feds and the contractors also like to place them where there are plenty of mosques. Here is how this group breaks down (their spelling):
Moslem Shiite: 1,294
Moslim Suni: 2,017
LOL! Note that they are bring both sides of the centuries-old dispute between the Moslem sects to live side by side in America (good luck with that!).
We have a huge category on Iraqi refugees with 687 previous posts for ambitious readers!
I wasn’t planning to write about the Pope’s propaganda stunt in Greece late last week where he visited the island of Lesbos and picked 12 lucky Syrian Muslims to take back to Rome with him, but there is one little bit I want you to see in this report from The Guardian.
One of the major themes throughout the last nearly nine years that I’ve written this blog has been the criticism toward phony Christian/Jewish charity that depends on stealing from taxpayers in order to help the downtrodden all the while claiming credit for being charitable. I don’t consider that charity—taking Caesar’s money and transferring it from one group of people to another isn’t charity! But, it has become such an established practice no one seems to think about it anymore.
So, see this toward the end ofThe Guardianstory (which by the way does not tell us if the Pope’s 12 Syrian Muslims will live completely on the Vatican’s dime and not the Italian government—something I doubt we will ever learn because the answer is probably that the Italian taxpayer will be footing their bill for years to come).
Get this! the Pope has been unable to persuade European Catholic Dioceses to take in refugee families!
Is it because they are primarily Muslim ‘refugees,’ or because the churches have become so conditioned to the concept that ‘Christian’ charitable money comes from the taxpayer that they no longer want to pony-up out of their own private funds? A little of both? Who knows?
The three families, who had initially set their sights on reaching Germany or another European country, were expected to seek asylum in Italy.
Their arrival brings to about 20 the number of refugees living in the Vatican, which has fewer than 1,000 inhabitants. A similar intake across Europe would see 6 million people given asylum on the continent of 300 million. [Does the Vatican give them special Muslim prayer rooms, etc.—ed]
Last year, the pope appealed to every Catholic diocese in Europe to take in a refugee family, an appeal that fell on deaf ears across most parts of the continent.
The number of migrants arriving in Greece has fallen drastically since Turkey agreed to take back all those landing on the Greek islands in return for billions in EU cash and other concessions.
And, by the way, never forget that it is Turkey that originally allowed the launch of hundreds of thousands of Middle Easterners and Africans from their shores to invade Europe. Most of the Syrian Muslims were safe in Turkey.
