No Surprise! Minnesota Governor Tells President Trump: Send Us More Impoverished Africans!

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz

Well, he didn’t say Africans, but that is pretty much what Minnesota gets these days!

He also, ever so cutely, said “The Inn is Not Full in Minnesota.”

I’ve been meaning to mention Minnesota ever since I saw a Star Tribune article that describes how the taxpayer funded resettlement contractors divvied up the state’s counties in order to put lobbying pressure on elected officials there.

Because Minnesota is such a hot resettlement site, the state has ‘enjoyed’ the presence of a majority of the nine federal contractors.*** At one point only HIAS didn’t have an office there.  The others were busy as one critic joked—“bidding for bodies” as the contractors are paid by you and me on a per head basis.

According to the Minnesota Department of Human Services website at the present time, five subcontractors are placing refugees in the state:

Here is the Star Tribune about how the five have divided the counties in the state to lobby for permission to place refugees.  They claim they are aiming to convince 24 counties (of 87) to grant permission to be resettlement sites this next year, but I’m sure they are out scouting for any easy pickin’s among the remainder of counties.

Local approval for refugee resettlement sparks heated debate in Minnesota counties


Ben Walen, director of refugee services at the Minnesota Council of Churches, said it seemed like county governments were “being put in a political bind.” The council is one of the state’s five refugee resettlement organizations. Those agencies [funded with taxpayer dollars.—ed] are splitting up the work of soliciting letters of consent from about two dozen of Minnesota’s 87 counties that have a recent record of resettling refugees.

I’m thinking putting county governments in a political bind is a good thing.  Don’t want political binds, don’t run for political office!

BTW, as of today, December 13th, the governor has apparently not sent in his formal letter to the US State Department.  See those consents that have come in already,  here.

***For new readers these (below) are the nine federally-funded refugee contractors that monopolize all refugee placement in America.  For decades they have decided in secrecy where to place refugees and they don’t want to lose that power because even as they pontificate about their religious convictions and humanitarian zeal, they are the religious Left’ political groups working to change America by changing the people and using your money to do it!

Has Your Governor Officially Consented to Accept MORE Refugees in 2020? Official State Department Website is Up!

By our count twelve governors have told the US State Department (or at least told the media) that they want more refugees. (See my right hand sidebar.)

The contractors*** have been claiming that 16 or 17 have agreed. 

(The contractors are pressing governors to agree by Christmas so they, the contractors, will have time to get their grant applications in—this is all about them getting their $$$.)

However, get this, the US State Department website went up today and only 9 governors have so far sent in their paperwork.

Only a tiny number of local jurisdictions have sent in the required consent, and it looks like there is some confusion because it is our understanding that it is county governments that must agree.

Below is what the DOS has at this time (not terribly impressive!).

This means you still have time to get to work!

Are Evangelicals Abandoning the President on Refugee Resettlement?

The President made it clear when he campaigned in 2016 that he wanted to see the number of refugees reduced if elected President especially from countries where the majority of its citizens hate us.  He has been doing that with each year.

Church World Service, a federal refugee resettlement contractor, is a Religious Left organization that not only wants more refugees, but is a key player in the Open Borders movement—as you can see in this photo of one of their street activists. This is not just about a few poor refugees as they would like you to think—they want to fundamentally remake America.

And, this year he took one more step to answer the concerns of immigrant-overloaded towns and cities and has offered the opportunity for county elected officials and state governors to either opt-in or opt-out of the refugee admissions program later this fiscal year.  This would give their taxpayers a breather since it is local and state taxpayers who must support the low-skilled and largely uneducated new arrivals.

Trump’s new system, that we have been writing about every day for the last couple of weeks, would go into effect in June 2020, but would likely have to be repeated in the fall as the determination for 2021 must be made by October 1.

The Open Borders ‘Religious’ Left has turned Trump’s efforts to give some control back to state and local officials into one more anti-Trump campaign.

One such group are the supposed “evangelicals” featured in this headline from something called the Christian Post.

2,600 evangelicals urge governors to continue refugee resettlement after Trump order

A reader very familial with the evangelical movement tells me that this is “fake news.”

He said he is “furious” and went on to explain,

“if you look at the actual letters, it appears that as many as 25-50 percent of the signatures have zero connection to the Evangelical movement. They are Presbyterians, Methodists, Lutherans, Anglicans and even a few Catholics. Shame on the Christian PostInstead of saying “Evangelical Christians” their article should have said “Liberal Christians.”

And, I will add:  Liberal Christians looking for more Democrat voters!

Here is some of what Christian Post reporter Samuel Smith says in this deliberately deceptive report:

Over 2,600 evangelicals called on their state governors this past week to consent to resettle refugees in their borders following an executive order signed by President Donald Trump requiring approval from state and local officials before refugees can be resettled.

The evangelical refugee resettlement agency World Relief and the Evangelical Immigration Table [Soros-linked!—ed] a coalition of evangelical organizations seeking comprehensive immigration reform, led an effort this past week to send joint letters to 15 state governors.

The letters call for the officials to permit the continued resettlement of refugees through the U.S. refugee admissions program in accordance with Trump’s Sept. 26 executive order giving states and localities the ability to block refugee resettlement.

So far, 17 of the nation’s 50 governors have indicated that they will continue to allow refugee resettlement in the U.S., according to World Relief.

We have only seen 11 governors go public so far, so we don’t know where they get 17.  Are 6 additional governors hiding?  See my right hand sidebar to see which governors have said yes so far. 

These consenting governors have effectively said:  send my state more poor people (we have run out of our own vulnerable citizens to care for).  We look forward to the day when all the immigrants will vote and we can have just one big Democrat socialist party in America!

Will Governors who are prime targets for the Religious Left (Texas, Tennessee and Georgia) abandon Trump?

The Christian Post continues…

The letters received a combined total of 2,669 signatories, including 659 on the letter to Tennessee Republican Gov. Bill Lee, 340 on the letter to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and 231 on the letter to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.


One state of concern in Texas, which is among the leading states in terms of refugees resettled in the past decade.

Texas has resettled over 80,000 refugees since 2002, according to Pew Research. Texas joined liberal states California, New York and Washington in hosting about a quarter of the refugees resettled in the U.S. in the fiscal year 2019.

As a conservative governor, Abbott hasn’t offered any indication so far on whether or not he will consent to refugee resettlement.

Another state of concern is Georgia, which resettled 1,000 refugees in the fiscal year 2019 as the Atlanta suburb of Clarkston, Georgia is home to thousands of refugees.

There is much more here.

The states the Religious Leftwing letter writers are specifically targeting (they want to get their consent by Christmas) are Arizona, North Carolina, California, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.

I asked yesterday if Republican governors are all talk no action?  

Only four years ago 30 Republican governors were telling Obama they didn’t want any Syrian refugees (the big group Obama wanted to admit) and now Trump gives them an opportunity to slow the flow and allow the massive migrant population we already have to assimilate, they are turning tail and running and you know its because they are afraid of being called names by the Leftists (or are in the pockets of giant global corporations clamoring for cheap labor!).

The extreme Left that makes up Open Borders Inc. is so extensively organized (and largely using our tax dollars to help them organize!) that regular citizens like you and me have very little power against them.

One thing this Trump initiative will do is help us identify who are the real America Firsters controlling governor’s mansions.

Have you taken 15 minutes to call your county commissioners and governors?

The Religious Left is on the rise, if you are a true evangelical, please make that clear when you call or write!

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