Joe Biden Plans to Admit the Most Refugees in any One Year Since 1992

Not even Saint Obama proposed such a huge number.

In the midst of a pandemic when large numbers of Americans are unemployed and struggling…

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris campaigned on lifting Trump’s so-called Muslim ban and immediately setting the ceiling to 125,000 refugees to be admitted in this fiscal year (FY21).

Trump had set the ceiling at 15,000 the lowest cap since the program began over four decades ago.

That 125,000 does NOT include those flowing toward our borders now in anticipation of Biden opening the borders and would be the highest cap in nearly 30 years.

(The 125,000 ceiling is only for those we fly into the US from the third world at taxpayers’ expense.)

Because we need to have facts, which are going to be harder to get as the Refugee Processing Center (US State Department contractor) has removed the very useful “Interactive Reporting” function we have have come to rely on for the last decade to understand who is being admitted and placed in your towns and cities, I will be posting information like this below when I can get it.  (To be archived in my Knowledge is Power category).

“Interactive reporting is no longer available”

This information (below) is available at the moment:

See that Biden has said he would admit tens of thousands more refugees than any predecessor (including Obama) for the previous nearly 30 years.

The number greater than 125,000 was 132,531 (1992), one of George HW Bush’s big refugee admission years!

The Refugee Act of 1980 was signed into law in the spring of 1980 by Jimmy Carter who of course later that year went on to lose the election to Ronald Reagan.  The vast majority of those early refugees were from Southeast Asia and they were escaping COMMUNISM.

Interesting that it was George W. Bush who really opened the flow from Africa.  And, it was Clinton who favored the flow from Russia.

President Trump admitted the least number of refugees in one year—11,814 in FY20.

Total refugees (again these are the refugees we flew into the US mostly at the behest of the United Nations)— 3,456,532—admitted over four decades.

Biden/Harris plan to put the US Refugee Admissions Program on steroids as they have promised the refugee resettlement contractors—the nine fake non-profits below.  Your tax dollars fund them to change America by changing the people.

North Dakota: Lutheran Refugee Contractor Closes its Doors

Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota, which only a few years ago built its fancy ($$$) new office building, is in financial ruin.

 

Well that is one less resettlement subcontractor of the hundreds operating around the US that are eagerly awaiting the new flood of refugees Biden and Harris are promising.

Here is the news (welcomed by those North Dakotans who have been strenuously objecting to the placement of more impoverished third worlders into their state).

From the Grand Forks Herald  (hat tip: John):

Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota to close its doors; 283 jobs will be affected

FARGO — Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota CEO and President Bob Otterson told employees in a company-wide video meeting Friday, Jan. 15, that the 102-year-old agency will be closing its doors.

In an emotional exchange, Otterson — who has been in the position for only 45 days — told employees that, due to the heavy drain on resources caused by LSSND’s housing department, the agency could no longer survive. Otterson said the ongoing financial strain caused by the COVID-19 pandemic also compounded the agency’s financial difficulties.

Otterson said several LSSND programs will continue, including the Unaccompanied Refugee Minor program and Abound Counseling, but they will no longer be known as part of the agency.

Otterson said that as part of the agency’s controlled liquidation plan, many employees will receive notification that their jobs have ended today, but some staff will continue working for several more weeks to help transition clients to other agencies.

Keep reading, apparently they got out on a financial limb in the housing industry (I’ve never understood the housing industry involvement refugee contractors have gotten into.).

LSSND located in Fargo was the only resettlement contractor in the state. See if you have a contractor working near you: https://www.wrapsnet.org/documents/2290-PRM-FY20-Affiliate-Sites-Large.pdf

 

The scope of social services LSS offers is broad, including counseling, aid for youth and families, and affordable housing. However, in recent years, the organization is perhaps most often associated with refugee resettlement.

It’s taken criticism over the number of refugees who have come to North Dakota, in recent years in particular.

To learn more about the huge controversy over refugees in North Dakota see my archive on the state.

See LSSND’s most recent IRS Form 990 by clicking here.  Note that in an income stream in that most recent year of $18 million, over $8 million came from government grants (that of course is you, the taxpayers!).  

Here is a screenshot of their income page. Be sure to scroll through to see salaries and other expenses.

 

I never thought of it before, but I wonder if taxpayers in ND can ask for an audit of where all the grant money came from and where it went.

By the way, LSSND was a subcontractor of one of the big nine federal contractors, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.  The US State Department funnels refugees through one of the big nine which in turn funnels federal dollars and refugees to its so-called affiliates (aka subcontractors).

That map above locates the subcontractors and identifies who their motherships are.

For new readers here are the top nine supposed charities that put refugees before American citizens.

Court of Appeals Rules: YOU Have No Say in Whether YOUR Town Will Accept Refugees

And, if you want to have some say, it means you are “unkind” and “un-American” according to Mark Hetfield CEO of the supposed non-profit group HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society).

HIAS is one of the groups which financially benefit from the resettlement of refugees as your tax dollars fund their work of changing America by changing the people.  This is what Hetfield said last year at the time of the lower court ruling against the President.

 “An overwhelming majority of governors and municipalities have already expressed their desire to continue welcoming refugees. To those few who have not, we say not only is it unkind and un-American to ban refugees from your states and towns, but it is unlawful.”  

Hetfield, his organization and eight other federal contracting groups like HIAS***, have been deciding for decades where the impoverished third worlders we fly into the country will be placed and they want to keep making those decisions.  After all, you are all a bunch of boobs and racists in their minds.

This is not a surprise.  As much as I have been a Trump fan, and as much as I admire his effort to allow local governments and state governments to have a say, his initiative was not well-thought-out. And, he was blind-sided by feckless Republican governors.  In fact, almost all Republican governors thumbed their nose at the President’s offer to give them a say.

Included among those governors who did not back the President were Arizona’s Governor Doug Ducey and South Dakota’s Kristi NoemOnly Gov. Abbott of Texas supported the President.  I believe Kemp (GA) and Desantis (FL) were silent.   (Someone correct me if I am wrong about those last two).

The recent Appeals Court decision ends any hope of consideration for your views about the placement of refugees and you will be back to only using your voice (ha! ha!) as they work to add more impoverished and potentially ill people to your towns and cities.

You really must involve yourselves in local politics!

As the incoming Biden Administration has said, they want to ‘welcome’ 125,000 refugees to America in year one to make up for what they will call the lost Trump years.

Here is CBS from Dallas-Fort Worth:

4th Circuit Upholds Ban On Trump’s Order Allowing States To Refuse Refugees

SAN DIEGO (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — An executive order by President Donald Trump had aimed to give state and local governments the ability to shut out refugees, but the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld a ban on the order.

The three-judge panel said the executive order that required both state and local entities to give their consent before allowing refugees to be placed in their areas “would cause inequitable treatment of refugees and undermine the very national consistency that the Refugee Act is designed to protect.”

Read it all here.

Tomorrow Biden/Harris will be coronated and the entire federal government structure will turn to the job of pouring more migrants of all stripes into the American heartland, indeed into every small and medium-sized city from sea to shining sea.

Those migrants, including supposedly “vetted” refugees will need jobs or welfare that will further increase joblessness among already strained citizens in the wake of a worldwide pandemic.  They will also need healthcare as they are not tested in advance for COVID-19 and other communicable diseases.

Americans Last!

*** For new readers these are the Progressive groups, some claim they are ‘religious’ charities, that put the wellbeing of refugees and illegal migrants ahead of struggling Americans.

Some of these federal contractors have been busy for four decades changing the demographic make-up of the United States and they are back in power!

Endnote:  I have been busy writing at my other blog Frauds and Crooks about the Great Election steal of 2020 and other issues.  I will be picking up the pace here at RRW as new readers will be arriving as Biden and Harris go into high gear, supported by the entire structure of the federal government, to change America.

I have been writing here since July 2007 (except for the brief period in 2019 when the speech police took me down) and have archived 9,577 posts (so far) on the refugee industry here and abroad.

By ‘welcoming’ Biden’s Promised 125,000 Refugees to America, we will heal the country says federal contractor

Say what!

Editor: To my dedicated readers here at RRW (some of you have been with me since 2007) I have been distracted by the nightmare unfolding in Washington and have been busy posting at my other blog Frauds and Crooks in the wake of the great Election Steal of 2020.

You might like to see some of my posts there tagged January 6th 2021 to see what I’ve been saying.

But, alas, it is time to direct my attention, or at least some of my attention, to the US Refugee Admissions Program which Biden has said will now be on steroids to admit 125,000 refugees in his first year.

From Fortune where the writer is employed by one of nine refugee contractors*** working for the federal government.

Many of these contractors are supposedly religious non-profit groups, but they are largely funded by you—the US taxpayer!

“Unity and healing” here we come!  NOT!

What do you think? Will Biden’s 125,000 refugees in year-one bring healing to small rural American communities? Photo: https://capitalresearch.org/article/resettle-with-caution-part-2/

How refugees could help the U.S. become unified again

Last year was largely characterized by separation and survival. Whether it was social distancing and COVID-19, violence in America’s cities, or attempting to sort out one of the most contentious and confusing elections in modern memory, America struggled in 2020, and needs to view 2021 with an eye toward unity and healing.

Perhaps the best way to do that is to unify and heal by returning to our American roots, and welcoming refugees into our country.

President-elect Joe Biden has stated his intention to raise the ceiling for refugee admissions to 125,000 for fiscal year 2021. Unifying around this goal, and welcoming those who have fled persecution and are desperate to find safety and freedom in America, could help the U.S. to again find unity.

[….]

More importantly, this move would be a big step toward reunifying our nation by reinvigorating our historical practice of welcoming refugees. Aiming for that 125,000 goal is the perfect way to come together and recommit our nation to the best of our national ideals. This will be a challenge that revives a tired nation, but it will take work and commitment from all of our citizens.

[….]

So how do we use this as an opportunity to heal?

First, people—both individually and in charitable, religious, or civic-minded organizations—should focus on learning about who refugees are and how the U.S. refugee resettlement process works….

The problem is that the process doesn’t work in the way they claim, and is one of the most secretive programs the federal government has been undertaking for four decades.

Second, Americans should continue to advocate for refugee resettlement. It’s vital that Americans hold Biden accountable for his dedication commitment to refugee resettlement. [This sentence needs an edit, but you get the gist—ed]

Oh, very interesting, they already think that Biden is going to wiggle out of his promise!  When our border is overrun by wannabe asylum seekers in the coming weeks, Biden is going to have a hell of a time telling America we need more poor sick people!

Third, Americans should reach out to the refugee resettlement agencies in their region and ask how they can help.

Do those things and PRESTO! America will be healed!

America Lasters!

***For new readers these are the Progressive groups, some claim they are ‘religious’ charities, that put the wellbeing of refugees and illegal migrants ahead of struggling Americans.

Again, these resettlement agencies (aka contractors) are largely paid by you the US taxpayer, they are not passing the plate at Sunday services. This is NOT Christian charity!

 

Arizona: Refugees Not Working! Lutheran ‘Religious’ Charity Wants More and so does Gov!

Resettled refugees haven’t been doing so well as the Chinese Virus continues to wreck the US economy, but nevermind, Biden has promised 125,000 more impoverished third worlders for Americans to take care of in the coming year.

Every time you see a sob story like this one in the mainstream media you should be firing off a letter to the editor and asking:

Has [city or state, fill in the blank!] run out of poor, jobless, homeless, hungry Americans?

Even it you know the letter won’t be published you are educating the editor!

Arizona REPUBLICAN Governor Ducey ‘welcomes’ more refugees and opposed Trump’s efforts to give local communities a say in the matter. https://apnews.com/article/a1723b44a657c0ef9f6fb163fbb9a94b

Recognizing that Americans are hurting and should be taken care of first, President Trump further reduced the number of needy people the country could manage in 2021, but Biden/Harris are putting Americans LAST as they promise the largest influx of refugees America has seen in many decades and far in excess of those Obama admitted.

(And, with his past actions, Arizona’s Republican Governor Ducey has signaled his agreement with Biden!)

Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest and the International Rescue Committee headed by Moneybags Miliband are putting out-of-work refugees FIRST—ahead of hurting Americans!

From Tuscon.com (hat tip: Tom):

Tucson agencies support of refugees challenging during pandemic

Since many recently-arrived refugees work in hard-hit industries such as hospitality, food service and transportation, they are among those greatly impacted by the pandemic, officials say

 

President-elect Joe Biden has said he will increase that cap to 125,000. Arizona resettlement agencies expect that cap to climb over time, allowing them to readjust and prepare for more arrivals in the future.

Nationally, Arizona is one of the highest states for resettlement, Prescott said. The IRC and Lutheran Social Services are among the organizations that provide a number of resources for newly arrived refugees, including job placement, enrolling children in school, finding and furnishing housing, and social services and community support.

[….]

Connie Phillips, CEO of Lutheran Social Services Southwest. https://socialwork.asu.edu/content/connie-phillips-eary

“When the pandemic first came last spring, it really threw our refugee clients into quite a crisis,” said Phillips of Lutheran Social Services. “Between the community and the staff’s ability to be innovative and to pivot, I think we were successful in providing for basic needs and responding to the immediate crisis.”

Since many recently arrived refugees work in hard-hit industries such as hospitality, food service and transportation, they are among those greatly impacted by the pandemic, Prescott said.

Refugees have lost their jobs, so have Americans!

More than 40% of the resettled refugees that Lutheran Social Services has assisted lost their jobs since the pandemic hit, Phillips said.

Arizona resettlement agencies addressed these issues by helping those who lost their jobs find new employment, as well as distributing food and supplies.

They also supplied refugees with information about economic relief programs for which they might qualify, such as rent and utility assistance through the city of Tucson.

Refugees’ living conditions mean they get more COVID says the IRC community engagement coordinator, and as the “most vulnerable people” need extra attention:

International Rescue Committee community engagement coordinator Stanford Prescott

The pandemic has revealed factors that contribute to greater positive rates among low-income communities, communities of color and immigrants — many of which apply to refugees. The nature of their work in essential industries coupled with living situations in which multiple generations reside in one home makes them more at risk, Prescott said.

To counter this, agencies have implemented measures to improve safety and testing in refugee communities.

Thanks to a grant from the Arizona Department of Health Services, the Pima County Health Department and the IRC have partnered to establish free local testing sites and ensure information about these sites is shared with the city’s refugees, Prescott said.

“This testing program is so important because if we can make sure that the most vulnerable people have access to testing, then we can keep those rates lower, which helps the community.”

What about poor vulnerable American kids?

Tucson schools have jumped in, providing essential equipment to refugee youth. Local resettlement agencies also work with families to help them navigate digital education.

There is more here.

And, just in case you think that Lutheran Social Services is being funded by the generosity of Christians passing the plate in church, see this page from a recent Form 990.

Taxpayers pay for approximately 85% of their annual income.

Less than $2 million of their $16.5 million revenue in 2018/19 came from private charity of some sort.  Be sure to see page 10 (Form 990 filed in early 2020) and note that most of their income went to salaries, employee benefits and office overhead.

There is even a quarter of a million in travel expenses!

They are still working as Government grants and contracts provide salaries for open borders political activists.
