Have you taken 15 minutes to make your calls?
Apparently Open Borders Inc. made more calls in Arizona than anyone concerned about the high number of impoverished third worlders Arizona is ‘welcoming’.
Arizona is the fifth highest state in the nation for refugee placement and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey sure has swallowed the kool-aid according to this story at Tucson.com.
And, so has the Republican Speaker of the House!
Ducey could easily have said that Arizona needs a little break to assimilate all those we have taken in recent years, but he didn’t.
What he did was invite refugee placement in the state at any number Washington and the contractors want to send.
And, effectively has placed the financial burden of their care on state and local taxpayers as the feds have long ago stopped financially supporting many of the costs of social services to refugees.
Ducey declines Trump offer to let Arizona opt out of taking refugees accepted into the US
PHOENIX — Gov. Doug Ducey said Friday he won’t take advantage of President Trump’s offer to allow Arizona to opt out of taking refugees.
“Throughout our nation’s history, the United States has been a refuge for individuals fleeing religious and political persecution in their homeland,” Ducey wrote Friday to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. “And Arizona has historically been one of the most welcoming states in terms of the number of refugees resettled here.”
Specifically, the Republican governor told Pompeo he officially is consenting to “initial refugee resettlement in Arizona.”
The federal government works with local authorities and nonprofit agencies to resettle the refugees accepted into this country. What changed recently is that Trump, in an executive order, said cities and states must provide written consent for such resettlement. His order effectively gave cities and states a veto option.
Ducey’s letter to Pompeo said one thing that made him decide to permit continued resettlement is his belief that refugees pose no risk.
“Refugees arriving in the United States have been vetted and approved by the appropriate national security agencies and the Department of State and have been granted legal entry to make a new home in the land of the free,” Ducey wrote. [This is boilerplate contractor language so clearly he simply cut and pasted from some template letter he was provided.—ed]
That letter, however, may not fully clear the way. Ducey press aide Patrick Ptak said similar approvals are needed from local governments. He said that most likely involves only Pima and Maricopa county officials as well as those in affected cities.

The governor’s decision drew praise from Bishop Edward Weisenburger of the Catholic Diocese of Tucson.
“Refugee resettlement is a critical ministry which we, along with a great many dioceses across our nation, have provided for many years,” he said in a prepared statement. “Providing aid to those in dire need and who are fearing for their lives is an important part of Catholic teaching.” [Just tell the TRUTH for once! No wonder the Catholic Church is losing its flocks!– Ed]
The governor’s decision also is supported by House Speaker Rusty Bowers, R-Mesa.
More here. It is too sickening for me to continue.
He claims his worries of 2015 (terrorism) have gone away and he says he is satisfied that the citizens of Arizona have been consulted.
