So far, we know of 15 Republican governors who have been foolish and obviously railroaded by the federal resettlement contractors*** to rush to tell their voters that they have capitulated and are opposing the President on Trump’s signature issue of the 2016 presidential election—getting the dysfunctional UN/US Refugee Admissions Program under control.
It is increasingly clear that those who have said they are consenting to more refugees and thus going against the President didn’t even read the Funding Guidance.
According to those US State Department guidelines, that the resettlement contractors must abide by in order to get their funding for the latter part of FY2020 (yes, this entire exercise is set up as part of the funding mechanism for the nine contractors), they must have the governor’s consent along with the approval in writing from the county commissioners where they want to place the refugees in order to get their payola in June.
Although there is supposed to be a January 21st deadline, on careful reading one can see that governors and counties have months until the new program begins on June 1 to say whether they are ready for more destitute third-worlders or not.
The Republican governors with the big X across their faces are the dumb governors so far who fell for the contractors’ lobbying push when they claimed the deadline was Christmas.
Is Texas Governor Greg Abbott going to play it smart? Or how about Florida’s Ron DeSantis, or Georgia’s Brian Kemp?
You can help make that happen by continuing to pound them —tell them you want no more refugees in late 2020 (the program as it has been run for decades is in effect until June!). Tell them we already have enough of our own poor and vulnerable citizens who need help.
And, if the governor is smart and doesn’t care about pandering to the Left, especially to the ‘religious’ Left, or being pushed around by Secretary of State Pompeo (I have more to say on that later, but no time at the moment), he or she will just stay silent if the answer isn’t a resounding NO right now.
***For new readers these (below) are the nine federally-funded refugee contractors that operate as a huge conveyor belt monopolizing 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 Leftwing political activist groups working to change America by changing the people and using your money to do it!
And, they do not limit their advocacy toward only legal immigration programs, but are heavily involved in supporting the lawlessness at our borders.
The question isn’t as much about refugees per se, but about who is running federal immigration policy now and into the future?
(I plan to say this once a day from now on!)
I continue to argue that these nine contractors are the heart of America’s Open Borders movement and thus there can never be long-lasting reform of US immigration policy when these nine un-elected phony non-profits are paid by the taxpayers to work as community organizers pushing an open borders agenda.
