During Trump’s Presidency Many Refugee Agency Affiliates Closed

I don’t know exactly how many, but I have heard that around 100 offices closed.

The nine contractors*** call them affiliates, but you could also call them subcontractors (I do).  I suspect they don’t like the later word because it then appears that there are lots of bucks moving around, and there are!

As the Obama Administration was ending we had reported that efforts were underway by the US State Department to add as many as 40 new locations for the placement of refugees since the contractors were wearing out their welcome as they overloaded towns and cities with poverty.

Here is a map from the Refugee Processing Center showing where refugees were being placed in 2016.  I know it is hard to read but you can see it enlarged either at the link above at RPC, or use the link under each map.

See that the nine contractors are color-coded and listed in the right hand corner, and note that more than one contractor can have local offices in cities especially eager for more diversity and for more needy people to care for.

We can only assume those cities have run out of their own poor people!

Now here is a map of the locations for refugee resettlement at the time Biden was installed in the White House.

You can expect to see a re-opening of some of those offices closed during the Trump years, and pay close attention to local efforts, often by those “Interfaith” political organizations, agitating for new offices.

Frankly, the only way forward now is to work at the local/state level for most of your political activity.

Americans Last!

***For New Readers these are the nine federal refugee contractors who worked to put Biden and Harris in the White House and are lobbying for millions of illegal aliens to be transformed into legal voting citizens, as well as raising the refugee admissions ceiling from 15,000 this year to 125,000.

They are largely paid by you, the taxpayer, for their work of changing America by changing the people, and in so doing, are putting Americans last!

  1. America continues to decline and will do so. Most notably started with Obama and his racist, hate America policies. Actually, it started when people turned away from God and His Word! We continue to decline and follow the inclinations of our fallen nature, our self centered ways, not knowing the God who created us! If you read your Bible, what is happening is as God told us it would. We are definitely in the last days, before His return to gather the church to heaven, before He showers the world with judgement! We will not fix our country! I hope many will turn to our Savior Jesus Christ and receive what He did for us on the cross…forgiveness from our sin. We turn from going our own way to following Him.

    1. Suzie,
      I agree but we are still obligated to stand up for what God has said and defend the blessings he gave us and denounce what goes against him.

  2. Interesting in that there are ZERO RR sub-contractor sites in Biden’s home State of Delaware!

    1. I have been reporting that little nugget of information for over ten years. Biden is one of the original sponsors of the Refugee Act of 1980, yet Delaware gets only a handful of refugees.

  3. Sickening. NC has more subcontractors than almost any other state except Calif. How did La, Miss, Alabama, and Wyoming get off the hook?

    1. Wyoming is the only state in the nation that never had any refugees resettled there. The other states get a few. Wyoming never got on the hook from the first days of the program in 1980. I have never had an explanation of how they did it. You may recall a few years ago a Republican gov wanted to start a program there but the blowback was enormous and he had to give up the idea.

      1. Ann, I remember that. It pays to call and email and make a stink. We all have to do that in large numbers in our states.

  4. I’ve been reminding people that your sight is likely to come in handy again. I guess someone was paying attention and posted about this below at our blog.
    https://www.theqtree.com/author/valeriecurren/ (that should take you to the comment. If not last page of the 2/6/21 Daily Comments at theqtree.com

    So heads up if you haven’t seen this. Likely you have and I’m sure your going to have something to say about this since you’ve been through this and have advised on such matters in the past.

    Biden signed an executive order Thursday that denies state and local governments any authority to reject the drop-off of refugees into their towns and communities.

    IMO Seems a bit incredulous and great way to call attention to his usurpation of the Constitution.

    1. It is not clear from your comment about what happened to the Qtree. Was it deplatformed and now back up? And as for the Breitbart link to Twitter. I can’t open it because Twitter has me in some sort of limbo because I won’t give them my phone number and give google (more) access to my life.

  5. People have the same worry with Parler as you do with twitter. Most have just moved on to Gab.com

    Qtree did move the site out of precaution from being deplatformed and loosing all it’s data. It is now https://www.theqtree.com (the valeirecurren q tree link appears to be hot so it could take you there as well.

    Here’s a link to the Brietbart story, no twitter involved.

    And the full story.

    U.S. President Joe Biden signed an executive order Thursday that denies state and local governments any authority to reject the drop-off of refugees into their towns and communities.

    In essence, former President Donald Trump’s policy (Executive Order 13888 of September 2019) gave state and local governments a say in whether they have the capacity to provide refugees a pathway to become self-sufficient and successfully integrate into American society.

    Biden’s new executive order (EO) indicated that the federal government would consult with American communities across the country about refugees’ resettlement.

    The president’s “Executive Order on Rebuilding and Enhancing Programs to Resettle Refugees and Planning for the Impact of Climate Change on Migration” noted:

    Through the United States Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP), the Federal Government, cooperating with private partners and American citizens in communities across the country, demonstrates the generosity and core values of our Nation, while benefiting from the many contributions that refugees make to our country.

    However, with the stroke of a pen Thursday, Biden revoked Trump’s Executive Order 13888 that enhanced state and local involvement in refugees’ resettlement within their jurisdiction.

    Biden’s order does ask the secretaries of state and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to provide the president with a report within 90 days from Thursday that “shall include recommendations regarding whether” Trump’s executive order “should be maintained, reversed, or modified.”

    The report must also describe “all agency actions, including memoranda or guidance documents, that were taken or issued in reliance on or in furtherance of the directives revoked.”

    It appears unlikely the Biden administration will reverse course on canceling Trump’s EO on state and local governments’ involvement in refugee settlements within their jurisdictions.

    Legal advocacy groups, such as the New York-based International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP), welcomed Biden’s new policy on refugees’ resettlement. IRAP has opposed Trump’s immigration policies in the past.

    Some Democrat lawmakers had urged Biden to craft a refugee policy like the one outlined in the president’s new executive order.

    Breitbart’s Neil Munro pointed out that Trump’s refugee policy from September 2019 gave states, cities, counties, and towns the legal power to stop groups from dumping foreign refugees into their communities, adding:

    The policy will allow residents to block the stealthy efforts by refugee resettlement groups to direct new refugees into communities which are selected by local elites. This refugee dumping is usually done at the request of local employers, such as slaughterhouses, that want new workers to replace ones who quit because of low wages, harsh conditions, and health hazards.

    During the Trump-era, Munro noted, refugee resettlement groups were forced to lay off workers amid the reduced inflow of refugees and federal funding.

    Those groups denounced the former president’s refugee policy.

    “The policy requiring the approval of Americans before refugee drop-offs was described as ‘more bad news’ by HIAS, a group which gets paid to move refugees into U.S. communities,” Munro wrote.

    HIAS applauded Biden’s new executive order on America’s refugee policy.

    End.

    Notices your numbers are going back up. People didn’t have as much need for this site during the Trump years. Now that the Bidenese are in power that seems to be changing.

    Hopefully this is not showing up as duplicates. Had to resend.

    1. I did not see your comment earlier. And, I guess you saw what I said about it in my post today.

  6. The next thing we will hear is that Biden will want to sign onto the UN Global Pact on Migration, of which Canada and Mexico are signatories.

    It has been very expensive and harmful to Mexicans, whose villages are trashed by people forcing their way through Mexico’s southern border, to get to ours.

    People from Camaroon, Congo (the rape capital of Africa), Haiti, Cuba, Bangladesh, Pakistan, ad nauseum, are comíng in hordes to “claim asylum”, and suck off the bottomless teat of the US taxpayer.
