Another Refugee Resettlement Industry Letter to the President, Lutherans This Time

I know this is just another ho-hum letter to the Administration (for the media’s consumption) from the ‘religious’ Left insisting that the President admit 95,000 refugees to America beginning on Thursday—yes, this coming Thursday October first.

Krish O’Mara Vignarajah, president & CEO of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service formerly worked for Michelle Obama

However, I am posting it just to be sure my archives are complete for this year’s Presidential determination lobbying campaign.

See my tag FY2021 for background and all of my archived stories on the subject.

This time it is Lutherans writing to the President as just one more publicity stunt on the part of the refugee contractors who fear the President might set this next year’s admission level at zero.

Here is the letter, but most importantly below are the 243 signatories (who signed on to the letter from Krish).

I thought you might like to have a look at who in your community is working to change America by changing the people. Lutherans especially might want to take note.

Dear Mr. President and Secretary Pompeo:

As bishops and ministers of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), a denomination of 3.5 million people of faith, and as the CEOs of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) and Lutheran Services in America, we write to express our support for welcoming refugees and urge you to commit to resettling at least 95,000 refugees in fiscal year 2021.

Sincerely, Krish etc….

6 thoughts on “Another Refugee Resettlement Industry Letter to the President, Lutherans This Time

  1. Does anyone know of a way to email all the letter signers as a group? Perhaps the original letter has all of their email addresses. It’s time to let them know that “we the people” do NOT support their self-serving radical program.

    1. Sorry didn’t get to this sooner. The only thing that might make a tiny difference is if good Lutherans look at the list and find someone near them that they can focus some negative attention on. Better to focus on getting Trump re-elected or we are finished and the flood gates to refugees will be flung open.

      1. A letter to the editor of those particular places might help to focus more negative attention on the traitors. Spell out the horrible things refugees have done, like the Boston Bombers, Utah rapist/murderer, Tennessee killers etc. What is the one thing all of these so called religious leaders always say? ‘ No refugees has ever committed an act of terrorism’. LOL

  2. There were only 3 from my state and none from my city. Many from out west and especially Arizona. I wish we could work up a letter from our constituents to send to the President to stop the refugees. I don’t know any pastors that would put their name to a letter asking for less refugees. But we can all send him a letter or contact the President online thanking him for the pause and asking for 0 refugees in the upcoming fiscal year.

  3. Thanks so much for your coverage of this and other immigration developments. It’s a nasty job but someone has to do it! It is sickening how corrupted the churches have become.

    1. Thanks, and sorry to not have posted comments until now. Frankly I don’t know how much longer I can do this—13 years might be enough. Depends on what happens in November.
