Oh gosh, where do I begin to tell you about Refugee Resettlement Watch‘s road trip. My head is spinning with all I’ve heard and seen and it would take me hours to tell you.
First, though, below are the top three posts of the week. Sorry I haven’t written much, but between driving and meeting, I’m finding little time for the computer. By the way, I am now 1,500 miles from home and am taking the day off. I got a beautiful hotel room at a bargain price and can spend all day here just catching up. (The room has a long counter-like work station and I am spread out!).
The number one post here surpasses the others by a huge margin:
Road Trip News!
Because mostly I don’t know where to begin in sorting through what I’ve learned and seen in the last week, I’m going to give you my general impressions (and am not going to give out any names of patriots working in these areas, except for Congressional candidate AJ Kern).
First, if all of you could see Toledo, Ohio and Dearborn, Michigan, you would be shocked.
Obviously both are struggling, grimy places where more refugees are being placed by the US State Department. The feds and their contractors are setting up more refugees to fail by placing them in the dilapidated towns. It seems that there are mosques every few blocks and in Dearborn the storefront signs are in Arabic. I’m told the first Arabs were brought to Dearborn by the Ford Motor Company looking for laborers (a recurring theme in my travels).
Any ideas you have about this program being one of compassion and humanitarian concern for the downtrodden must be wiped out of your heads! The refugee program is about changing America and about MONEY and labor!
Most disturbing in this part of Michigan is that Arabs are spreading out throughout the nicer counties nearby and buying up properties and homes in mid to upper class neighborhoods (and building mosques).
There are some great people working to save Michigan against great odds and I thank them profusely for several days of tours and briefings by those who are living it.
Create a blog or website! Information is power!
For a model on what you should do where you live (I am going to hound you all to do this)—get a website or blog on which to post all of your research and news so that others in your state can learn from you and know that they are not alone. Secure Michigan is a great example of what you should be doing!
Also, some of you must begin running for local elected office because almost everywhere I’ve been local elected officials are in the tank for more immigrant labor to be brought in to your communities mostly driven by the ‘leaders’ of the local Chamber of Commerce!
As I reported earlier this past week, I stopped in Janesville, Wisconsin to give a little help to the Paul Nehlen campaign. Nehlen, as you know, is attempting to unseat Speaker Paul Ryan and I wanted to tell citizens there that Ryan is a long-time backer of the Refugee Admissions Program and did nothing last fall to help slow the flow of Syrians now entering the US at an accelerated pace. If he and Hillary are running Washington next year we are finished!
And, then ‘oh my gosh’ I traveled to Owatonna, Minnesota where an aluminum window company is being sued by CAIR on behalf of Somalis over the issue of prayer break times. And, in what can only be called ‘providential’ I met a woman who has followed the conflicts involving the Somalis in Owatonna since Somalis first arrived there in 1992/93! And, guess what, that is the year the US State Department says the first Somalis went to Minnesota! Their destination was Owatonna! Now guess who wanted the Somali workers? This same window company now being sued!
I then had a good visit with citizens in Willmar, Minnesota where the Jennie-O plant is responsible for the large Somali population there. Go here to our archive of posts in which we mention Willmar.
Next on my travels, I stopped in the now infamous St. Cloud, a city we visited previously and wrote about on many occasions (see archive here, I think it goes back to 2008). The city was part of former Rep. Michele Bachmann’s district. It is now represented by Tom Emmer who along with Rep. Keith Ellison created the Somali Caucus in the House of Representatives.
Also see Emmer’s score on immigration generally at NumbersUSA, here. And, he has an F on the Liberty Score Card here at Conservative Review.
After hearing from citizens there, I had the pleasure of meeting Emmer’s opposition in the August 9th Republican primary—AJ Kern. So many of you are focused on the Nehlen v. Ryan campaign in Wisconsin, but don’t overlook Kern’s challenge of Emmer. If you have a little extra funds, please send a contribution to Kern! Click here for her website.
By the way, see what the local pro-Somali newspaper has to say about Kern, here. This should be enough to fire you up to help her!
One of the most profound impressions I’ve gotten on this road trip so far, is that fear of speaking up against the invasion of America is holding citizens back—they fear for their jobs, they fear for their safety and they fear for their reputations as the NO Borders political activists and their groupies (including the big businesses looking for cheap slave labor) call them racists and xenophobes when they know they are not!
For new readers arriving here for the first time today, see our May roundup for instructions on finding stuff here at RRW where we have posted over 7,700 posts since 2007.
And, last but not least, thanks to everyone who has donated to Refugee Resettlement Watch. I promise to try to thank you all individually today! I’ve been asked who is funding this road trip—the answer is me (with a little help from readers). I don’t work for any nefarious organization as I am sure my critics believe! (Update: Forgot to remind you that your contributions are not tax deductible!)
