Two Major Refugee Contractors Receive Millions to Move Illegal Aliens from the Border to Interior US

Because this story is so important, I’m posting it instead of a weekly round-up of refugee news.

And, besides, the US Refugee Admissions Program has been stalled for some mysterious reason by the Biden gang so there isn’t a lot new since last week.

I can only guess the hold-up is because they have created such a crisis at our wide open border with their fake refugee invasion that they aren’t beginning the large movement they promised the Left of Africans, Asians and Middle Easterners into the country fearing more anger from their 80 million voters! (Only 24% of all Americans support Biden border policies.)

That isn’t making the nine contractors***, who are paid by you and me to place them, happy.

However, two of the nine contractors are busy collecting millions to ostensibly take care of the women and kids, including some “not so nice women,” arriving at the border in historically high numbers.

Those two are the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.

 

Sister Norma Pimentel, executive director of Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, and Cardinal Blase J. Cupich of Chicago greet asylum seekers at the Humanitarian Respite Center at Sacred Heart Church in McAllen, Texas, in 2017, the location of the viral video from Infowars last week.

First, to get a feel for the magnitude of the crisis, see the New York Times story headlined:

Young Migrants Crowd Shelters, Posing Test for Biden

The administration is under intensifying pressure to expand its capacity to care for as many as 35,000 unaccompanied minors, part of a wave of people crossing the border.

More than 20,000 children and teenagers are in the custody of a government system that is already at “103 percent of capacity,” including nearly 17,000 in shelters run by the health department, according to briefing materials from Operation Artemis, a response to the border crisis led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Government projections obtained by The New York Times show there could be more than 35,000 migrant children to be cared for by June — a prospect that one former senior health and human services official called “terrifying.”

The NYT story does not mention the role Catholic agencies are playing, but does mention Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland.  Of course you are led to believe that they are doing their work of moving migrants to the interior US out of the goodness of their Christian hearts.

Viral Video

Now,, see the controversial film in front of a Catholic agency in McAllen, Texas from Infowars this week if you aren’t one of the million or so who have already seen it.

Sister Norma Pimental was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in America for 2020. https://time.com/collection/100-most-influential-people-2020/5888284/sister-norma-pimentel/

Needless to say, Catholic Charities has blasted Jones’ video saying at Catholic World Report:

Catholic Charities Rio Grande Valley on Thursday said a viral video of their work with migrant children on the U.S.-Mexico border is “inaccurate and unauthorized.”

We have been doing our humanitarian work for years, said Pimental director of Catholic Charities Rio Grande Valley.

One of those on the scene for the confrontation in front of McAllen’s Catholic Charities facility is Tim Enlow and it is worth an hour of your time to see and hear him explain to patriot interviewer Delora O’Brien what exactly went down that day.

One of the most shocking revelations in the interview is that Enlow describes the arrival at the scene of a white man identifying himself as wealthy and from Philadelphia who claims he was told by a nun! that he could come down to McAllen and pick up a couple of van loads of single women he could care for and provide work for!

Watch it before Youtube removes it!  Hat tip: Robin.

 

 

O’Brien and Enlow charge that the government, our US government, is sponsoring child smuggling!

Your tax dollars at work!

They are more right than they know since both Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) are raking in millions from the US Treasury to ‘care for’ Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC).

If you are a long-time reader of RRW, this news is not new!

I bet for others, you had no idea that YOUR TAX DOLLARS were paying these ‘religious’ charities for their work!

Data for the Bishops from USA Spending where all federal grants and contracts are catalogued.

Here we learn that the USCCB has pulled in $17.9 million in just the last 12 months for their UAC ‘care.’

The UACs represent the biggest chunk of the Bishops payola right now.

Below you can see a year-to-year comparison. 

They have lost some serious money since Obama, but they are picking up steam again.  See for FY21, which we are in right now, they anticipate more millions this fiscal year as represented by the yellow line.

 

 

The Lutherans have got the Catholics beat! 

Again data from USA Spending.

LIRS doesn’t need to be bringing in refugees from around the world, they are doing very well taking care of the illegal alien children. The $55 million is their take (of your money) for the children! over the last twelve months.

By the way, LIRS is over 90% taxpayer funded. There is no passing the plate at Sunday services for them!

Longtime readers know that LIRS was mired in controversy a few years ago, but notice how much the Trump Administration was shelling out to them.  More than any Obama year!  Pity that Trump never put anyone into key positions who knew where the bodies were buried.

 

 

***In case you are new to RRW, here are all of the contractors.

They worked to ‘elect’ Biden/Harris and lobby for open borders.  As taxpayers you pay them millions annually to change America by changing the people.

Americans Last! is their motto!

 

 

Refugee News Round-up: First Week of April 2021

“Biden’s delay on welcoming refugees has been a huge disappointment for refugee advocates.”

(Boston Globe columnist, Marcela García)

The refugee news from the last week primarily revolves around two main themes—the ‘children’ surging across the US border and where to put them before releasing them into the country; and why Biden has yet to sign the document to start the flow of third world refugees from Asia, Africa and the Middle East to Anytown, USA.

The ‘children’ as we have been reporting in recent weeks are not refugees even as the open-borders-promoting mainstream media wants you to believe they are.

The mostly teenagers are illegal aliens hoping to claim asylum, or so they say. 

The vast majority will never achieve refugee status because most will never appear in any asylum adjudication process, and even if they did show up few could prove that they were persecuted in their home country.

Also, as I have been saying, the largest number of those getting in are older teens who will soon age-out of the system altogether.  In one story this week a weak attempt was made to answer the question—what happens when they age-out?

See that story here:

What happens to unaccompanied migrant children when they turn 18?

They must find a sponsor—-what a joke!

Moving on to the other major theme of the week, the mystery deepens—so why hasn’t Biden signed the annual determination document that would lift Trump’s low number from 15,000 refugees to 62,500 for the fiscal year?

Refugee contractors heads are exploding as their man Chairman Joe isn’t removing Trump’s refugee ceiling.

His State Department already told Congress that the Administration wants 62,500, an absolutely unattainable number as the fiscal year ends in a little over 5 and a half months.

But, no Biden signature yet!

What surprises me most is that the refugee contractors*** who have a pipeline into the State Department, a pipeline that was functioning during the Trump years, don’t appear to know what the hold-up is.

However, a theory is developing—Biden doesn’t want to look TOO PRO-IMMIGRANT! 

WTH! 

The crisis on the border alone tells us it is a little late for that! 

Everyone with eyes can see that the Biden/Harris administration is the most PRO-immigrant and most Americans-last administration of all time.

See the Boston Globe op-ed:

Is Biden afraid of appearing too soft on immigration?

The official name of the malady is xenophobia. Donald Trump did everything he could to spread the condition, and it still infects us. [LOL! They can’t resist whacking Trump!—ed]

Unlike Trump, President Biden doesn’t fear displaced foreigners who fled their homes due to civil conflict, natural disasters, persecution, or systemic violence. Nor does he blatantly use them as handy political props. Still, he may be afraid of appearing soft on immigration, just as some were labeled soft on crime a generation ago.

That could be one explanation for why Biden hasn’t reversed Trump’s historically low refugee admissions cap of 15,000 annually, leaving many in the resettlement world baffled. It could also be that the administration is consumed with managing the influx of migrant children at the US-Mexico border.

Regardless of the reason, Biden’s delay on welcoming refugees has been a huge disappointment for refugee advocates.

The Globe opinion piece directs us to an exchange that happened at a White House press briefing with Jen Psaki on Thursday.  The reporter is not identified:

Q    Gotcha.  And then, a quick follow-up.  Why haven’t refugee flights continued at this point?  Last month, the President did announce that he intended to raise the refugee cap before the typical, you know, end of the fiscal year —

MS. PSAKI:  Yeah.

Q    — where it traditionally happens.  That hasn’t seemed to happen yet.  Why haven’t those flights continued?

MS. PSAKI:  He remains committed, but I don’t have an update on the timing of the flights.

Q    Does it have anything to do with the fact that resources are going towards the border at this time?  Or —

MS. PSAKI:  No, no, it’s not related to that.  No.

Q    Thank you, Jen.  [Reporter meekly accepts Psaki’s non-answer–ed]

More at the Boston Globe, here.

Incidentally, the Biden team has put the Temporary Protected Status program on steroids demonstrating that their pro-immigration policies are moving full steam ahead, except (strangely) for the Refugee Admissions Program.

Here we see the not wanting to look too PRO-immigrant theme continued at the Buffalo News:

Refugee numbers drop in Buffalo – and Biden isn’t boosting them

Privately, some refugee advocates speculate that Biden is delaying opening up refugee resettlement so long as undocumented immigrants continue crossing the border with Mexico in record numbers, perhaps fearing political blowback from any move that might be seen as pro-immigrant.

Why is Buffalo so eager for more refugees?

Dear readers, this is a major reason why Democrats want refugees!

Democrat-run cities are dying and they see that moving the third world to their cities will be their ticket to saving them and their own political power. Nevermind that you pay for it both financially and culturally.

The Buffalo News continues….

Biden’s inaction has prompted a growing sense of frustration among those long have backed refugee resettlement as a key cog in stabilizing or even growing Buffalo’s population, such as Rep. Brian Higgins.

By the way, besides the fact that dying cities need bodies to keep Dems in power, it isn’t just the Democrats.  The globalists (including Republicans!) push for cheap labor, as outlined in a lengthy, but well worth reading treatise at the Last Refuge, explains more.

It explains why they hate Trump so much and why he had to go!

Okay, this is getting way too long!

Don’t miss my post at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ this week about the murder of a little refugee girl in Idaho.

There is a lot of talk about anti-Asian prejudice, but even Biden is in on it according to some in the Vietnamese community in America.

Still reeling from Trump-era policies, groups demand Biden address deportation, refugees

Although North Dakota lost its major refugee contractor, the state plans to pick up the slack.

North Dakota is not taking kids from U.S. southern border, but is hiring new refugee resettlement coordinator after LSS closure

 

It is a beautiful spring day on the farm, my garden calls, so that is enough for now!
