They are called Special Immigrant Visa holders (SIVs for short) and they supposedly helped the US in some way (or they could have helped an NGO!), sometimes as interpreters. They and their immediate family members are welcomed to the US and treated with the same package of goodies refugees receive.
Also, we are told that the resettlement contractors are paid (by you) to place them as well, and those funds we’ve heard are helping to keep the contractors from completely going belly-up!
(See my post yesterdayabout the number of regular refugees admitted this fiscal year, the number is relatively low, but the SIV number is not! 2,196 Muslims were admitted as regular refugees, but add to that 9,166 Afghan Muslims in the last 11 months!)
Actually I’m not going to run through a litany of his positions that mirror an internal Leftwing political agenda, but when reader Paul sent this good blog post from John Hinderaker at Powerline, what came to mind was the photo below and this report I did just over five years ago.
In my view, Pope Francis is at the top of the list of feckless and frankly treasonous ‘leaders’ in Europe who are directly responsible for the Invasionfrom Africa and the Middle East that roils the continent from Sweden to Italy on a daily basis.
One might be led to conclude that creating chaos and discord is the aim as this Pope welcomes Africans to Italy as he did five years ago. Surely he must have gone to the Saul Alinsky school for political agitators!
Here is Hinderaker’s blog post yesterday telling us about how biased international journalists are when covering the Liberal Pope who pushed out the Conservative Pope and became the present Pope only 4 months prior to his welcoming stunt on Lampedusa.
THE SCANDAL OF LEFT-WING JOURNALISTS COVERING A LEFT-WING POPE
It seems pretty clear that liberal reporters and editors view Pope Francis as an ally, maybe one who could decisively neutralize their long-time adversary, the Catholic church. Hence they are protecting him against what would, with a conservative pope, be a scandal of historic proportions.
And, I guess we see clearly why journalists never investigate their financial dealings, or question the separation of church and state. Why, because the Bishops’ goals directly align with most journalists’ political world view.
This is just one more example of why Trump won the White House! The deplorables have caught on!
