Whoa! Big news! Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society to bring 50 Muslim Syrian families to Delaware

So, why is that a big deal?  HIAS resettles Muslims all the time.  That is not the big news!
Delaware has hardly taken any refugees in 36 years despite the fact that then Senator Joe Biden was one of the original architects of the Refugee Act of 1980 and observers have always suspected that Delaware has gotten so few because it was a case of ‘not in my back yard’ for good ol’ Uncle Joe.

As one of the few men still living responsible for the Refugee Act of 1980 (There were about a dozen Senators, Ted is dead, but Jimmy Carter is still kicking), thank VP Joe Biden for the demographic change in your state (but not in Delaware until now!).

Now here comes news that the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (see our huge archive here), one of nine federal resettlement contractors, has targeted Delaware for 50 FAMILIES according to the news from Delaware Public Media (that could be more than 200 refugees in total).
Although the article doesn’t say, we assume they would go to the Wilmington area where synagogues are lining up to help place the Syrians.  We already know that 98-99% of Syrians entering the US as refugees are Muslims and most of those are Sunni Muslims.
Here is the story at Delaware Public Media:

First State faith leaders and other community groups gathered Friday morning to learn more about a wave of Syrian refugees coming to Delaware as early as the end of the year.

About 50 Syrian families are slated to be resettled in the First State in December or January. [Planning has obviously gone on in secrecy because this plan is way down the pipeline and already approved at the US State Department. The big rush is that they want to beat a Trump Inauguration!—ed.]

Delaware’s Jewish Family Services agency is teaming up with HIAS – one of only nine organizations working with the U.S. State Department and the refugee resettlement program charged with placing refugees in the United States and abroad.

HIAS Senior Director of Communications Bill Swersey says this is the first time Syrian refugees are being resettled in Delaware, and adds the list of immediate needs for them is long.

Islamic Community is surely overjoyed!  Yes, because that means the Hijra is advancing into Delaware!

Several synagogues, non-profits and the Islamic Community of Delaware have already signed on to help. Delaware and Wyoming were the only two states not to have settled any Syrian refugees during the 2016 Fiscal year that ended Sept. 30th.

Urgent notice to Wyomingites!  They may have secret plans in the pipeline for you too!

LOL! This is why I seem to never get done (and it is a beautiful Saturday here), I read something that I know is wrong and I then have to find the facts.  I knew there were MORE than two states that did not get Syrian refugees, so I checked the Dept. of State data base.  Here is a map of where all the Syrian refugees were seeded in FY2016.

Alaska and Hawaii didn’t get any either, they just didn’t fit on the map. I count 11 states that did not get Syrians! HIAS must be giving false information to make Delaware folks feel guilty.

Nervous in Delaware? Be sure to read ‘Ten things you need to know!’
For new readers, HIAS is the refugee contractor that told the Southern Poverty Law Center to investigate me, see here.
***We have heard that the US State Department has secretly targeted 47 new resettlement sites. And, that is because they have worn out their welcome in many locations, plus the numbers being admitted are so large that they need many more cities in which to seed them.  These are the ones we have identified so far.  We have now added Wilmington.

Asheville, NC

Rutland, VT

Reno, NV

Ithaca, NY

Missoula, MT

Aberdeen, SD (may have been thwarted!)

Charleston, WV

Fayetteville, AR

Blacksburg, VA

Pittsfield, MA

Northhampton, MA

Flint, MI

Bloomington, IN

Traverse City, MI

Poughkeepsie, NY

Wilmington, DE

Watertown, NY (maybe)

Youngstown, OH (maybe)


"Advocacy" is code for Lobbying as Lutheran federal refugee contractor advertises for DC office

We have told you about this on previous occasions over the years, but it bears repeating! The nine major federal resettlement contracting agencies, that like to call themselves VOLAGs (Voluntary agencies! Ha! Ha!), have lobbyists in Washington to not only protect their flow of federal dollars, but to promote their Open Borders agenda.
And, that means not just “advocating” for more refugees, but all of the contractors have worked on past initiatives by Congress for so-called ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform.’

This is where LIRS is headquartered and a few years ago I got this description from their website: The Lutheran Center (LIRS headquarters) is a six-story structure constructed in 1999 on property owned by Baltimore’s historic Christ Lutheran Church. The building is located near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor in the historic Federal Hill neighborhood, a charming area rich with history and an eclectic array of eateries and shopping venues. (Congress gives them your money to keep the whole thing going!)

Wouldn’t you think that agencies like the Lutherans here would not want the country flooded with illegals-made-legal while they were charged with finding work for their tens of thousands of legal refugees?
I don’t want to wander back into the weeds of the Gang of Eight bill that passed the Senate, but the refugee contractors were in the thick of it (lobbying for its passage) because if it had become law, they would have gotten more paid “clients” that they would help get signed up for welfare, job training, medicaid, etc.
I meant to make this quick and I will.  Check out Gates of Vienna (GoV) blog here (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum) discussing the job announcement for a DIRECTOR OF ADVOCACY.
That is ‘fancy-schmancy’ language which simply means—-LOBBYIST.
O.K. fine, they can have a lobbyist too, but the big question is this—-are you paying for their lobbyist???
Their advertisement says this:

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) is a national faith-based organization with a 77-year history, a budget of approximately $58 million per year, and over 100 headquarters staff.

BTW, that headquarters is in a very nice building at the posh Inner Harbor in Baltimore.
And GoV wonders how much of the $58 million is your money.  I can answer that because I just analyzed LIRS finances last month, here.
From the most recent available Form 990 (2014) we learned this:

Total revenue for that year was $59,862,898

Total federal grants were $55,341,275

And, they also received from your money $1,817,755 for a loan service fee.

95% of their income comes from you—-the taxpayer!
Without the money that CONGRESS appropriates to them they would dry up and blow away!
The only power you have right now to try to slow the juggernaut is if you can persuade your Representatives in Washington (your Congressman and US Senators) to DEFUND the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program on the FY2017 Budget that Congress must pass by December 9th.
We have no taxpayer-funded lobbyists working for us. In fact there is NO lobbyist working exclusively on our side—the side that wants to slow the flow—of the refugee issue.
Frankly, if you don’t even try to do this then you can keep complaining (in comments to me and on social media) about the program until America is gone!

Why do you think LIRS needs a Director of ADVOCACY in Washington DC? Because they get it—they know that Congress holds the purse strings!  Your money is their lifeblood!

Endnote: for all of you having problems with a Lutheran resettlement contractor in your state, this Baltimore-headquartered Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is their mothership!
