An Idaho Voter Sends Fabulous Letter to His Governor! You Can Do This Too!

Update December 10:  A reader suggests you copy your letters (that you are writing to county commissions and to your governor) to the US Secretary of State. See here.

Well, heck the Refugee Council USA (the lobbying arm of the refugee industry) prepared a “tool kit” for their followers to use to help them organize against the President and to argue for more refugees.

Governor Little is a fan of Chobani Yogurt (just so you know)!

They prepared template letters for their people!

(I’ve posted their “tool kit” here.)

Well, we can do that too!  A reader from Idaho shared his letter to Republican Governor Brad Little.

It’s great, you can use it too! 

Simply substitute your governor’s name and your state!  Maybe add a few more points you want to specifically make!


Dear Gov Little,

I am writing to urge you to advise the State Dept that Idaho will
NOT accept any more refugees. While I suspect Chobani and other Big Ag interests will push for a massive increase in refugee numbers, the
fact of the matter is that many parts of Idaho are already
experiencing a housing shortage as well as burgeoning school
enrollments. We need to take care of our state first.

Idaho has a relatively small population and you can bet that most
refugees will vote for Democrats, the party of Open Borders and Free
Stuff. We can’t out-pander the Dems, so let’s not try.

A major problem for states in taking refugees is that local
governments end up paying most of the costs for their healthcare and
education. Most refugees arrive with no English proficiency or useful
skills, many are illiterate in any language. This places a huge burden
on our educational system, a burden shouldered by local taxpayers.
Refugees often arrive with serious health problems that local hospital
districts are expected to pay for. Local governments are required to
provide interpreters in hospital, court and educational systems,
regardless of how exotic the language and expensive those services

These are the kind of costs that “welcoming” states are required to
provide. I’m sick and tired of the feds dumping costs on local
taxpayers. The Refugee Act of 1980 promised that state and local
governments would not be forced to pay these costs. They lied, but
what else would you expect from a bill written by Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden and signed by Jimmy Carter? That says it all.

Finally, once a state says that refugees are welcome they will have
no choice as to what kind of refugees they receive. This is a problem
because most refugees are chosen by the UNHCR, a corrupt institution
run by an organization that hates us. Politicians are always saying
these people are seriously vetted, but that’s a lie. Many countries
sending us refugees are failed states that have little info on the
people they are choosing and we’re supposed to trust the UN.

While I am sure you’ll be getting lots of mail from refugee
contractors, this is one from an actual voter. Just say NO to more

Thank you for reading!

By the way, Idaho has taken a lot of refugees over the years, so the Governor could simply say that the state needs a breather, time for the existing refugees to assimilate.

Shame on You if You Don’t Take 15 Minutes to Do This!

This post is filed in my ‘Where to find information category’ where all of my recent posts on this make-or-break issue may be found.

See the right hand side bar for the governors who have caved already and told the President that they want more impoverished refugees placed in their (your!) state.

As I said in my post this morning:

If you are contacting elected officials please send me feedback at

  1. Here’s my letter to my Governor.

    Dear Governor:

    Your predecessor invited the Refugee Resettlement Program to settle people in Spartanburg County without any input from the people. Only “stakeholders” were consulted. We the people were favored with a visit from Ass’t  Director Ann Richardson but that was so she could explain to us what a great program the Refugee Resettlement Program is and we learned that the people she considered stakeholders were those who would be getting lots of money from the program – these included hospitals, social services, churches, schools, etc. I hope when you got their proposal this year, you just said “no.”


    Your friend…

  2. Thank you for posting the email from the Idaho voter. I used it as a template to contact Governor Abbott from Texas! Texas has a huge problem with illegal aliens and is the most “welcoming” for legal refugees and our schools are a mess. Hopefully more will do the same!

  3. Here is my letter, but using facts will probably scare our Democratic governor.
    Dear Governor Cooper (NC)
    President Trump has issued an executive order stating all localities must approve any additional refugees that are placed in our community.
    I oppose any additional refugees being place in our county. These are the reasons why:
    • Our small community already has more than our share related to our size. The placement agency has placed approx. 2400 refugees since the year 2000, in a community of (103K residents), per State Dept Refugee Processing center

    • By agreeing to accept more refugees you are agreeing that state and local taxpayers pick up the financial burden after the initial federal payment to the Receiving agency A Former Commissioner did extensive research on the high cost to our city and county thru the health dept and social services. He also stated that a refugee murderer, cost the county over 100,000 in costs for incarceration, psychological services, lawyer fees and others. That is just for one criminal case.
    He will most likely be in a mental health hospital for life.

    • In the 2016 annual report to Congress by the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the agency reported that in 2015, 26.7% of refugees received cash assistance from at least one federal program; 66.1% of refugees had received noncash assistance such as SNAP (food stamps). The Federation for American Immigration Reform estimated the annual cost of refugee resettlement to U.S. taxpayers at $1.8 billion. $71 million will be spent to educate refugees and asylum-seekers, a majority of which will be paid by state and local governments. I know many personally that have lived here for 10 years or more and still do not speak English. This limits them to low paying jobs and forces them to seek welfare.

    • We have enough of poverty in our community, don’t you agree? Vulnerable Americans should come first. There are hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers at our southern border and they must be processed first.

    • Security screening is not adequate and safety is an issue. One refugee slaughtered 3 innocent children in 2015. Do you want to continue to take a risk with your citizens? There are many good and decent refugees but with them come many that are not and do not accept our values.

    • The ‘religious’ ‘charitable’ groups placing those refugees are actually federal contractors who depend on placing refugees to receive their pay from the US Treasury. These contractors serving our area receiving Federal pay by the head for refugees, would likely not be able to exist without the federal taxpayer funds.

    • The original law created an opportunity for states to opt-in or opt-out that has been ignored for decades.

    • On top of all of this, our community spoke out in a very public and contentious county commissioner meeting, in favor of limiting refugees. We have already spoken and the majority of citizens do not want to see more refugees.
    Thank you for your attention to this Executive Order by President Trump”
