Welcoming refugees? Will lawyers descend on your school system next?

Update August 19: “Not the school I deserve,” said refugee. Here.

This is a lesson for every town contemplating becoming a “welcoming” refugee resettlement site. 

Are you listening Rutland, VT, Aberdeen, SD, Reno, NV, Missoula, MT, Charleston, WV and Fayetteville, Arkansas?
This news comes to us from “welcoming” Lancaster, PA (btw, it is in Lancaster that I first heard citizens, who asked questions about refugee impact, described as being in “pockets of resistance!”)

“Enriching us all” or is it bankrupting us all?

Apparently the Lancaster school system sought to deal with older, non-English speaking, refugees by placing them in an alternative school system, but lawyers for the ACLU and others will have none of it.  So now the school district there will be in court all week defending their decision at taxpayer expense.
And, so much for your American kids getting a good education!
From Newsworks:

As many as 700 refugees are resettled each year in Lancaster, a high number for the city’s population.  [This will happen to your town! Once they get a foothold the original 50 or 100 become 200, 500, 700 in one year!—ed]

Four of them are spending today in court, where they’ll testify in a lawsuit against the School District of Lancaster.

The suit alleges the district’s breaking the law by refusing to admit older teen refugees or automatically diverting them to an accelerated credit program. There, the case claims, they get an education inferior to what’s available at the local public high school (particularly when it comes to English language instruction.)

But attorney Sharon O’Donnell, who’s representing the school, says “the bottom line is whether the court can tell the [Lancaster] school board where to place students.”

Pennsylvania school code says residents between 6 and 21 years old are entitled to a free public education. At least one international treaty, the U.N.’s 1951 Refugee Convention, requires refugees to get the same public education as residents of countries where they’re resettled. [So we are being told that a UN treaty could govern our local school board decisions!—ed]

The lawsuit also alleges civil rights and federal Equal Educational Opportunities Act violations by the school, which O’Donnell refuted in recent court filings.


The lawsuit in Pennsylvania is similar to others filed in Florida and settled in New York this spring, and comes as refugee resettlement is expected to continue to rise.


The lawsuit’s being brought by a total of six student refugees, represented by a team of lawyers. Aside from Rothschild, they’re from the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia-based Education Law Center.

This is all the more reason to tell your Congressmen and Senators NO! when Obama wants more tax dollars next month.

Refugee industry goes in to high gear for Obama/UN big show; what do you do?

Yesterday we told you about the August 28th rally (the warm-up act) in Washington, DC to gin up media for the refugee industry as it pushes into the critical month of September and wants to be sure the money will be flowing their way to distribute larger than ever numbers of impoverished and questionably vetted refugees to your towns and cities.
(For new readers, the resettlement contractors*** are paid by the head to seed refugees, chosen by the UN, throughout America! They can’t do their work without YOUR money!)

Deciding your town’s future at the United Nations!

Also, in September, Obama will send his last ‘determination’ to Congress on how many refugees we will take in FY2017.
Congress can decide to fund those numbers or not!
We can certainly blame lame duck Obama, but the real pressure must be on your Members of Congress!

The big propaganda show itself will occur at the United Nations on September 19th and 20th.

Here is the information released by the United Nations:

The UN General Assembly will host a high-level summit to address large movements of refugees and migrants, with the aim of bringing countries together behind a more humane and coordinated approach.

This is the first time the General Assembly has called for a summit at the Heads of State and Government level on large movements of refugees and migrants and it is a historic opportunity to come up with a blueprint for a better international response. It is a watershed moment to strengthen governance of international migration and a unique opportunity for creating a more responsible, predictable system for responding to large movements of refugees and migrants.

When and where?

It will be an all day event on Monday 19 September 2016 at the UNHQ in New York.


Is there a related event on 20 September 2016?

Also on the margins of the General Assembly, on 20 September 2016, the United States President Obama is hosting the Leaders’ Summit on Refugees, alongside co-hosts Canada, Ethiopia, Germany, Jordan, Mexico and Sweden, which will appeal to governments to pledge significant new commitments on refugees. While the Leaders’ Summit will focus on refugees, not migrants, the General Assembly High-Level Summit will address large movements of both. The two events will complement one another.

Will you let the United Nations change your American towns?

For all of you working hard to save your towns (and I’ve met many of you on my swing through the heartland over the last month), this is it!  You have to direct all of your efforts from now and through September at pounding Congress on this issue.  Use the problems you are having where you live as the inspiration and the catalyst for your anger.
Your member is still at home until after Labor Day (see calendar).  Find them in their districts! Tell them what you think! Tell your Senators too!
And, while you are directing your community organizing (yes, you are community organizers!) to halt all of the funding for the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program, you must work to get Hillary defeated.
This UN stunt is geared to help Hillary! Obama and the United Nations are counting on a Clinton presidency to continue (and expand!) the work they are beginning on August 28th!
Note to all I talked to in my travels, you still need to work locally to regain control at your local elected official level and get rid of some the mayors who have been ‘captured,’ but at this moment there is only one major goal…

….don’t let Congress fund Obama’s 2017 resettlement goal which surely will come in at the 100,000 to 200,000 level.

***These are the federal resettlement contractors. Is your church working with the UN and being paid with taxpayer dollars to bring poverty and poorly screened refugees to your town? Time to speak up on Sundays (by the way, evangelicals are not off the hook because World Relief is an evangelical organization!)  So-called religious charities are in red.
