I told you again about the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) here the other day.
They are one of nine federal contractors receiving millions of your tax dollars annually, AND they were a lead organization suing the Trump Administration over the travel ban.
Raising private money is a good thing, but…. Why should we be required to pay for more than half of their budget for their pet projects (including working to encourage more migrants to cross the US border) as outlined by their President and CEO in an appeal for funds today:
Let them raise all of their funding from private donations! Ask your members of Congress and US Senators over the upcoming break why you should have to pay one dime for their political activities! ($24.5 million of your tax dollars in 2016 alone!)
Because I’ve been telling you in advance about the pow-wow in Brussels yesterday about the migrant invasion of Europe and what the EU will do about it, I’m compelled to give you an update of the disappointing results.
They talked and talked, indeed they talked all night, and came up with what the NY Timeseven says is a ‘deal’ with “sketchy” details.
A 28-year-old “man” has been arrested in a violent kidnapping case, luckily the woman fought back and escaped.
Ann Coulter once said that the way news stories are written about crime cases involving migrants and refugees one needs a “secret decoder ring” to figure out what nationality the alleged attacker is and what might be his or her immigration status.
Reader Linda sent me the story from Spokane and this morning I had a few minutes to search news stories about the arrest of Atif Ado. Continue reading “Spokane, Washington: Secret decoder ring needed in kidnap case”→
The Trump Administration has been an unrelenting 17 month assault against America’s values as a nation welcoming of immigrants and refugees.
(Mark Hetfield, CEO of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society)
You all know what happened in the Supreme Court yesterday. In a nutshell, the court affirmed that the President of the US has the power to limit immigration.
However, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society one of the primary groups that sued the Administration from day one about the so-called Muslim ban isn’t giving up and is urging its followers to participate in anti-Trump rallies coordinated by Linda Sarsour’s group MPower!
As I mentioned the other day, the issue of the border crossing kids is one I discussed back in the Obama days rather extensively, but the ‘children,’ the mostly unaccompanied teenage boys crossing our borders, are not refugeesand so the issue isn’t at the top of my radar screen right now.
And, the subject is ably covered by so many others.
That said, I do get some pleasure out of demonstrating that Leftwing do-gooders, whose hearts bleed for the children, also happen to be raking in big government bucks from you—the US taxpayer—for their good works. Southwest Key Programs is one example. You can read more about it here at wikipedia . It is largely funded with government grants and contracts.
Reader Mary alerted me to the huge taxpayer-funded salary its President and CEO Juan Sanchez is pulling down. CNN says it is now at $1.5 million. I find it amusing that now that Trump is in office these outrageous taxpayer supported NGO salaries are suddenly newsworthy. David Miliband(CEO of another federal contractor—-The International Rescue Committee) is a piker at $671,749.
The most recent Form 990 I could find (tax year ending in August 2016) for Southwest Key Programs is this one from Obama’s time in office—clearly the Obama ORR was shelling out big bucks to care for detained children.
Almost completely government funded….
And, here is the salaries page….
