Pinned Post: Personal Story From a Reader Reminds Me! It is now up to YOU!

When a reader sent me a link the other day to a story I had just written about, and another said the following in a comment:

States need to take it upon themselves to regulate immigration and refugee resettlement ..D.C. can not tell states what to do unless weak politicians allow it.

I knew that it was time to take a break from writing this blog.

It became clear that people aren’t reading and aren’t doing what they need to be doing if they really want to slow immigration and save their communities from becoming a depository for needy people from the third world.

We all want someone else to save us.

We expected President Trump to save us, but he could only do so much.

I’ve been here before.  I don’t want this post to get too long, but decades ago I became a conservative when the National Park Service working with preservation groups and local politicians wanted my farm and others nearby to be added to a national park.

Long story, it took years, but we prevailed. It required hard work gathering facts, publicizing them, and we had to weather a lot of public acrimony.

For a number of years, in the late 1980s into the early 1990s, I wrote a newsletter, LOL! the old fashioned kind that needed printing and mailing before we had such an easy way to get information out.  It was called Land Rights Letter and I wrote about the federal (communist!) land grab that was happening everywhere at the time.

Eventually I had to stop because people all over the country would call and ask me to help them save their land from the federal government.  I was here to give advice, but it would be up to them to do the work. And, I discovered that they really didn’t want to do what they needed to do, they wanted me to do it for them.

I don’t mean to pick on the reader who sent the comment above, but what the heck have I been writing about for these nearly 14 years at RRW?  And, who is electing weak politicians at all levels of government?

The Socialist Democrats have been working diligently at the local and state level to put their people in place and now here they are at the top of the heap almost everywhere.

So, I better get to my point!

It is now up to you! 

Update!  See my tutorial on how to compete with the Left!  I am going to add to it weekly and it will be available in my sidebar here at RRW and at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’

RRW is a resource for your education and hopefully the nearly 10,000 posts I’ve written since 2007 will be a resource as you do your local organizing.  If you are new, start researching my category ‘Knowledge is Power’ because having facts is the first requirement of local community organizing.

Local organizing is the only way you are going to slow the demographic change the Left has in store for you.  We lost Trump, Congress is a total waste, most governors are chickens, but maybe there is hope for your state legislature and your city government.

The most important place for you to get politically active is in your own home town where exposing what the local politicians have in store for you is the first action step you must take.

That brings me to Stephen’s story.  Stephen is a reader who sent me this report on what happened in his Texas home town.

He posted his comment to this post:

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

Stephen….

I’m going to see if I can make this a quick story as alternatives to fighting this stuff seem slim.

I was aware of your site during the Obama years and there were other articles out there about the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule when this took place.

I received a letter from the zoning committee informing me that gas station/carwash/food mart was going up kitty corner to my property and if I wanted to object I had, I believe 10 days, to show up at the next meeting and make the objection. I was the only homeowner that had to be legally notified because of the proximity to the proposed building site.

We live in a small city of approximately 3,000 people and for the most part zoning laws are strict. You have to build on 3/4 of an acre lot minimum to get in or buy an existing home which is set up the same way. Anyway we have a gas station nearby where they wanted to build and another not far from it and both sell convenience items so this didn’t seem to make sense to add a third in between the two.

I went to the city’s web page and looked up the minutes from the city council meetings and, lo and behold,  I find a 55-page power point presentation for the building of what equates to small college-sized campus looking thing. Nice, snazzy looking plan and made up by a local college from the big city.

Essentially it’s about 10 large-sized apartment buildings with a proposed train station. (They’ve been trying to get light rail in this area for years but it keeps getting voted down, if this went through it might of been enough to revive that project).

The zoning change for the gas station/carwash/food mart thing is on the very edge of the foot print for this large development, not part of it, but they had to know about it, especially since they are from the west coast and this is Texas.

Also the only people who know about this here are a small handful that were at that city council meeting and no one else. Additional information on this: it is right across the train track is an industrial park so it’s kind of obvious that who ever was going to fill those apartment buildings would likely be working at that industrial park.

The major concern was that city was about to allow lower income people into the city. This new population would add about an easy one third to our population and could easily change the demographics of our city and instead of being a red district this could of been enough to change it to blue.

Word went out pretty quickly. No talk of race, refugees or anything like that because it was never mentioned by them so not by us either, but we fought this and beat it back based on a variety of issues, the foremost being how the city hadn’t really good answers for what they were trying to rush through.

The train station wasn’t a firm thing, sewer would be required, traffic congestion would become a problem and more. Basically people were just saying hell no, we live here to get away from the city and don’t want a city moved to us, which is what this was.

Bottom line is pay attention to what’s happening in your zoning and city council meetings. Raise the flag early or these things become unstoppable.

I’m not sure how a Biden EO would of effected this if it was announced up front, what the construction was for.

Currently the land is still undeveloped but the city has put together a master plan to avoid most of our concerns though there are still small cottage sized units of housing planned for (about half of the original plan) with out developers yet, so we could find ourselves back in the same or similar situation. [Stephen will be watching, I am sure!—ed]

 

Stephen told you the most important thing you can do now is to find out what is being planned in secrecy in your community.  It might not be a plan for refugees yet, but the housing he describes will, you know!, be back as long as the Dems control all levers of government. See Biden housing initiative described at The Federalist.

If you live anywhere near any of the towns and cities on the maps in this post below, or even within a hundred mile radius of one of them, they will place more refugees in your community.

Getting the information early, spreading the word to your fellow citizens, and creating a public outcry, as Stephen did, is all you have going for you at the moment. The resettlement agencies tend to stay away from potential resettlement sites if there is sufficient public opposition (I know that from personal experience), but the trick is to find out as early as possible what the plan is for your community. 

Hint! One thing you can do is to religiously follow your local government meetings and have someone join your local Interfaith group to get information because they will be the first to lobby for refugees for your town or city.

And, you better get to work booting the Dems from office, especially at the local level, or move to another part of America where you will be free of them (at least for now).

I am not going away completely.  I’ll post here if something strikes me as vital, or of interest to me, to post. And, I’m still at Frauds and Crooks where I have more readers and more leeway to write on a variety of subjects because frauds and crooks are everywhere!

Trump Initiative to Give State and Local Government a Say in Refugee Resettlement was DEAD Before Biden EO

I am willing to blame (almost) everything on the newly installed Biden/Harris Administration, but Trump never had support for his effort to give state and local governments a say in placement of refugees.  Why?

First, because the Leftwingers at three federal contracting agencies, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Church World Service and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, had taken the EO to court and had already won!

The contractors have been calling the shots on locations for decades and they plan to keep it that way!

 

An Appeals Court, the day before Inauguration Day, had already put the nail in the coffin on this Trump effort to protect you and give you a say in refugee resettlement site selection.

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

And….

Republican Governors did not back Trump!

More importantly, governors needed to support the plan and the vast majority, at least 18, Republican governors in the nation opposed the President, except for a handful including DeSantis and Kemp who remained quiet, leaving Governor Abbott of Texas the only Governor in the Nation brave enough to back the plan!

Three More Republican Governors Turn on Trump, Cave to Leftists on Refugee Program Reform

White House Supposedly Blindsided as Republican Governors Cave on Refugee Resettlement

….most importantly, the supposed reformers working for the President apparently did not have a firm understanding of how weak most Republican governors are on immigration issues of any sort.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott was the only Republican to support the President’s effort to reform the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program before the resettlement contractors shut it down with a lawsuit. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.org/2020/01/10/breaking-news-texas-governor-abbott-says-no-will-not-accept-more-refugees-in-2020/

For new readers, most Republican governors are weak because they are backed by global corporations and the Chamber of Commerce types who want a steady supply of CHEAP labor!

Hey, and for all of you Kristi Noem fans, she DID NOT SUPPORT THE PRESIDENT on this and I suspect it is because of that big Chinese-owned Smithfield Foods slaughter house in South Dakota and its appetite for cheap refugee labor.

In addition, of course, to the myriad other meatpackers scattered across South Dakota that Noem was obviously not willing to buck. (Not presidential material in my view!)

And, even if Biden left a little (fake) wiggle room as the Breitbart article suggests in its incomplete story, there is NO concern for you from Biden/Harris— for those of you who live in the communities where refugees have been resettled and where tens of thousands more will be resettled.

Biden is aiming to bring in more refugees than any president in three decades.

The US State Department and its contractors*** will be choosing locations for the impoverished third worlders new homes as they have been doing for 40 years.

Here is Breitbart’s story without some of the most important facts!  You can read it yourself, but remember…

As Biden arrived in the White House, there was effectively no longer a Trump EO to protect local citizens and states, and a big part of the blame goes to REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS who did not back the President.

Joe Biden Puts Americans in the Dark by Revoking Ability to Reject Refugee Dumping in Their Communities

Too bad Breitbart isn’t reading RRW!

 

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!

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society Joyful over Biden Promise of 125,000 Refugees in the Coming Year

“We’ll do all we can to help [get to 125,000] — and to hold the administration accountable.

(Did you get that Joe? A little threat from Melanie Nezer!)

 

I guess they aren’t too annoyed that he isn’t going to flood America with poverty at least for the next few months.  Maybe even Biden is wise enough to know that it would be a bridge-too-far for MOST Americans who are suffering due to the China virus hysterics.

Biden Says He Will Raise Refugee Ceiling “Back Up” to 125,000 as Americans Suffer Joblessness from Chinese Virus Lockdown

Biden’s promise of 125,000 is for next fiscal year (2022) which begins on October 1, 2021.  We haven’t admitted that many refugees since 1992, so Biden will be beating Barack on that score.

Prior to the Trump administration, HIAS and the other eight resettlement contractors*** resettled large numbers of Somali Muslims living in Kenya and chosen for the US by the UN.

 

However, for policy wonks who have followed the Refugee Admissions Program for over a decade, the flow will be creeping in shortly because there is a provision in the Refugee Act of 1980 which allows the Prez to change the cap during the year if he/she sees a need.

HIAS says Biden will follow the law and “consult” with Congress as he makes a case that he should begin raising Trump’s 15,000 cap right now.  Consult does not mean Congress can say no, but they won’t say no anyway.

An astute readers suggested that Biden will use the coming months to send massive amounts of federal money (your money!) out to the contractors so they can get their offices up and running to ‘welcome’ the New Americans.

During Trump’s Presidency Many Refugee Agency Affiliates Closed

 

Here is HIAS yesterday whooping it up!

WASHINGTON — In the first days of the Biden administration, HIAS has been encouraged by the new president’s swift and positive actions to welcome refugees. His pledge today to raise the annual refugee admissions cap in consultation with Congress is another much-needed step toward repairing the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program and making our immigration system more humane.

HIAS’s Melanie Nezer. Gee what is that little symbol in the left hand corner of the pic?

The annual refugee admissions cap — also called the Presidential Determination, or PD — was cut during every year of the Trump administration, setting a new record low each time.

For Fiscal Year 2021, the PD stood at just 15,000. President Biden has promised to consult with Congress and raise the PD before the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30, allowing more people in desperate need of safety to come to the United States as quickly as possible. The administration has said it will fulfill President Biden’s campaign promise to raise the PD to 125,000, its highest level in more than two decades, during FY22.

“President Biden has stated formally and in no uncertain terms that U.S. humanitarian leadership is back,” said Melanie Nezer, HIAS’ senior vice president of public affairs. “Rebuilding the resettlement system the prior administration nearly broke won’t be easy. The refugee resettlement program must bring people to safety, protect national security, and integrate people across the country, all in a contentious political environment and during a global pandemic. Despite these challenges, the president has made clear he intends to get there. We’ll do all we can to help — and to hold the administration accountable.

Biden Says He Will Raise Refugee Ceiling “Back Up” to 125,000 as Americans Suffer Joblessness from Chinese Virus Lockdown

Update: Here is the Executive Order, no mention of the number yet, just laying the groundwork.  Focuses on climate refugees and getting rid of Trump’s extra vetting of refugees among a bunch of other stuff. More later as I have a better look at it.

If you have been following RRW for the last many weeks (and months!), this is no surprise.  Chairman Biden and his gang are more interested in swamping America with more mouths to feed than they are in caring for struggling citizens.

Americans Last is their mantra!

Watch the video.  Biden says he is raising the number “back up” to 125,000 leaving the uniformed to think that it was just a few years ago, during Saint Obama’s administration, that the number was that high.

It hasn’t been that high for 29 years, not since 1992!

He and Barack never even got near 100,000. (But, lazy biased reporters will never tell you that!).

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

And, one more thing. Note that at about the 1:00 minute mark he says he will raise it to 125,000 “in the first full fiscal year” of his administration.  His first full fiscal year doesn’t begin until October 1 of this year.

So, does that mean that he is leaving Trump’s 15,000 ceiling in place for the remaining months of this fiscal year?  

 

As the refugees recently settled are still struggling to survive, the refugee resettlement contractors, who worked to place Joe and Kamala in the White House, have been pushing Biden to admit tens of thousands more.

Refugees Struggling in America, Yet Biden Promised 125,000 New Refugees in 2021

Tomorrow we should expect to hear from those refugee industry contractors and I’ll let you know what they say.

Columbus, Ohio: Refugee Gang-Raped in Low-Income Neighborhood

Big surprise, Not!  How many times over the years have I posted on violence against refugees who were placed in bad neighborhoods and substandard housing by the ‘religious charities’ that the US State Department hired to take care of them.

The ‘charities’ will claim in their defense that they don’t have the money to place refugees in better housing which begs the question:

Then why are you advocating for more refugees to be brought to America if you can’t take care of them?

Just the other day I told you about Church World Service‘s subcontractor in Columbus looking for more refugees to be brought to Columbus:

HIAS Tells Supporters—Pressure Biden to Stick to Promise—125,000 Refugees THIS Year

And, I see from the map I published yesterday that the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society has an office in Columbus:

During Trump’s Presidency Many Refugee Agency Affiliates Closed

So either the subcontractor working for Church World Service or the one working for HIAS is responsible for the unhappy Bhutanese refugees’ living conditions!

See HIAS bragging about its work in “welcoming” Columbus!

If you were to challenge them on their responsibility, they would likely say they aren’t responsible after the refugees have been here three months—an outrage in itself—because they are only paid to take care of them (their “clients”) for three months!

The Bhutanese are mostly Hindu and Buddhists and a small percentage are Christians. Peaceful people who you can imagine are targeted by a certain element of city dwellers. Hint! they are not terrorized by white nationalists!  But, the diversity-promoting resettlement agencies apparently figure they can just mix minorities together in ‘melting-pot’ America and everyone will live in multi-cultural Nirvana..

 

Thanks to a reader for sending me this from The CW Columbus:

After reported rape, refugees say living conditions at Columbus apartment are unsafe

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX) — After fleeing horrors in their native countries, some refugees in Columbus said their American Dream is turning into a nightmare, in part because of where they live.

Advocates for the Bhutanese/Nepali community said a report of a gang rape at an apartment complex on the northeast side highlights the problems in the neighborhood.

Yolanda Board, with the North Community Counseling Center, serves refugees. Earlier this month, she had to assist a woman who told police she was gang-raped at the apartments.

“This client was barged in on by four individuals, four men, and was subsequently raped and robbed,” Board said.

Board said conditions at the complex, The Commons at Victoria Village, are unsafe and the rape claim is highlighting that.

“We’re aware of years, in excess of a decade of incidents of outright negligence,” she said.

Her group claims there are health and safety issues, including rodents and a lack of proper locks on doors to common areas and apartments.

“Anybody walking off the street can just walk in there, sleep in the hallway, or do whatever,” Board said.

By the way, one subject that has never been fully explored is the connection some federal resettlement contractors have with questionable landlords.

Don’t miss this from the Bhutanese community of Democrat-run Columbus:
