Tell him or her that you want the Refugee Act of 1980scrapped and the program defunded because it has been a boondoggle for supposed ‘religious’ charities who secretly place refugees (chosen first by the United Nations) in your towns while their salaries/offices/travel and lobbying you pay for with your tax dollars!
They spend your money while putting your security in jeopardy!
Every day I get comments and e-mails from readers with a plea—tell me what I can do!
I’ve told you this before many times—you must make your members of Congress lives miserable no matter who they are—Left, Right or Center!
Clearly Donald Trump can’t do this alone! It is Congress that must change the law and it is Congress that appropriates the money.
And, I don’t want to hear you say—they don’t listen! Enough of you obviously aren’t demanding that they listen.
Guess who knows the value of Congress—-the refugee industry lobbyists and the contractors spending your money! They are all calling Congress this week because they get it!
World Refugee Day is June 20th and in advance of that the industry has gone into high gear with a grassroots lobbying campaign—-“stand with refugees” is a euphemism for give us more money to move more third world poverty to American towns!
See the e-mail I just received (below). Before you read it, I must emphasize that one call from you won’t change a thing, you need to call again and again. Stand outside their district offices too if necessary, visit their offices in Washington, DC—make your presence known! This is what the refugee contracting industry is telling their members to do (probably by the tens of thousands), so you need to make sure Congress hears your side of the story too! This is from World Relief (Evangelicals!)….
Very organized aren’t they!
Starting today, and every day this week, make a phone call to your Member of Congress to tell them that you want the United States to be a welcoming country for refugees.
We’ve made it easy for you to join us:
Call 1-844-4STAND5 (1-844-478-2635) to connect to your Members of Congress. Please call this number three times to connect to your two Senators and Representative. Tell them you want the U.S. to be a welcoming country for refugees.
Ask your friends and your family to join in calling this week!
Check out and share these videos of Hillsong United, Ann Voskamp, Jeremy Courtney and others asking us to call to stand with refugees.
We hope you join the movement and get your friends to do the same! CALL NOW!
This post is filed in my ‘What can you do’ category, here. I’ll soon be posting more ideas on what you can and MUST do!
It is not a surprise that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled against the President and his legal Constitutional power to keep America safe.
I’m in a hurry this morning to get to my chores, so just want to give you Daniel Greenfield’s reading of the decision here at Frontpagemagazine:
9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Announces It Is In Charge of Determining National Interests
Here is his opening paragraph:
The Judicial coup against democracy rolls on. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals announced with its latest ruling that it has the powers of the executive branch. To understand how insane the latest illegal and unconstitutional judicial effort to block common sense migration reform is, here are the powers that the 9th has decided it possesses.
Continue reading his excellent analysis.
As I have said till I’m blue in the face, I regret the fact that the 50,000 CEILING was announced in an Executive Order when the President already had the power to admit any number under the 110,000 CEILING set by Obama last September without even mentioning any cap. He could have quietly slowed the flow the minute he took office. At that time we had admitted just over 30,000 refugees in this fiscal year. Now, the Trump State Department is approaching 50,000 with months yet to go.
But, more troubling is the utter confusion created by proposing a complete ‘travel ban’ from six countries in the same EO as an announcement on refugee admission numbers and a temporary moratorium from across the world (across all nationalities and all religions). What a mess!
Hebrew Immigrant Aid Societycheers along with two other federal resettlement contractors which have a financial stake in keeping numbers of refugees high—they are paid by the head to place them in your towns and cities.
HIAS was joined in its amicus brief by the International Rescue Committeeand the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants—all multi-million dollar federal resettlement contractors who have a pecuniary interest in the outcome. HIAS press release yesterday begins:
WASHINGTON—Today, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued a ruling in the challenge to President Trump’s March 6 executive order barring the resettlement of refugees for 120 days, banning the entry of people from six Muslim-majority countries for 90 days, and cutting the overall number of refugee admissions for the year by more than half. The challenge was initiated by the State of Hawaii on behalf of individuals impacted by the executive order, and supported by HIAS and other refugee and human rights advocates in the public and private sector.
After hearing oral arguments before a three-judge panel on May 15, the court has affirmed the injunction on the parts of the order that would suspend entry of nationals from the six designated countries, suspend refugee admissions for 120 days, and cap the number of refugees to be admitted this fiscal year at 50,000. This ruling will allow refugees to continue finding safety in the United States through the refugee admissions program, unless the Supreme Court chooses to reverse the Ninth Circuit.
The Fourth Circuit case does not address the 50,000 CEILING issue. So, let’s hope that lawyers for the Justice Department are doing their homework and separating the CEILING issue from the ‘travel ban.’
And, HIAS knows they are on shaky ground regarding the President’s power to limit the numbers from all over the world (all religions/all ethnic groups) and so they continue to mix the ‘Muslim travel ban’ issue with the 50,000 cap to confuse their donors and the uninformed public.
If you missed it, see (here) how far below the CEILING other Presidents have gone—even Obama was tens of thousands below some of his earlier CEILINGS.
Also, see that HIAS, a federal contractor dependent on millions of your tax dollars, organized an anti-Trump rally, here in February. There ought to be a law—federal contractors shouldn’t be able to stage anti-government protests! Did they use any federal dollars???
Imagine the outrage if a military contractor was staging demonstrations because they wanted more federally-funded work!
Reader Sonya sent this video (thanks!) of ‘Anonymous’ from Saturday entitled: Anonymous–Message to the President of the United States (Donald Trump).
He admonishes the Trump Administration and tells them to cut the refugee numbers entering the US to zero (where have I heard that before?).
LOL! Toward the end of the five minute video (with 257,596 views right now), I thought his British-accented words sounded familiar! The phrase about having to “drag Congress kicking and screaming” is what got my attention.
Here is my post (from June 6th) on Daniel Horowitz’s prescription for the President and my comments that ‘Anonymous’ (whoever he is!) is using (LOL! I have no copyright):
You will be hearing more from me going forward on the specific legislation needed to scrap or reform the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program. But, I tell you that the Republican ‘leadership’ in Congress will not lead on this and will have to be dragged kicking and screaming to lift a finger to reform/re-write the Refugee Act of 1980.
In my view, there is only one thing the President can do to move Congress on the issue and that is to put a complete halt to the USRAP. He must set the refugee admissions level at zero! And, leave it there until reform measures are passed by Congress!
And, here is the truth: if he makes no move along those lines, or the additional lines addressed by Horowitz, he will be blamed for a Manchester in America (not Ryan, not McConnell, not the refugee contractors, not the ‘deep state’ blocking his moves, not the media or the Leftwing).
The blame will be on DJT exclusively.
Here is just a bit of the transcript:

Whatever it takes to get the message to the President!
