They’re Back! Elites Want to Break Wyoming Using Afghan Evacuees

It drives the open borders refugee contractors crazy because they have never gotten a foothold in Wyoming!

They have been trying for years to open Wyoming’s borders to the world, but the state has resisted for forty years as the only state in the nation that never set up a refugee program and never invited a refugee contractor*** in to do their dirty work.

The most recent effort to shove diversity down the throats of Wyoming’s mostly rural population came in 2014—an effort that was thwarted by vocal hardworking citizen activists. (I met some of those citizens on my 2016 road trip through the West and Midwest.)

I wrote extensively about efforts to bring a refugee office to the state in a series of posts.  The topic of refugee resettlement became a major issue in a gubernatorial race on-going at that time.

Serious students of the refugee program should have a look at my Wyoming archive by clicking here.

By the way, they did break Montana a few years ago and Idaho is being radically changed through refugee resettlement.

Thanks to reader Edward for sending a link and tipping me off  to John Binder’s report on the latest push.

From Breitbart:

WaPo: Diversify ‘Overwhelmingly White and Christian’ Wyoming with Afghans

The Washington Post is promoting a proposal to diversify the “overwhelmingly white and Christian” state of Wyoming by resettling Afghans in the region.

As part of President Joe Biden’s massive resettlement operation out of Afghanistan, his administration plans to resettle at least 95,000 Afghans across 46 states. The only states or territories not taking Afghans are Hawaii, South Dakota, West Virginia, Wyoming, and Washington, DC.

Wyoming is the only state in the nation where the federal government does not annually resettle refugees. That is mostly because none of the nine taxpayer-funded refugee contractors have offices in the state.

Believe it or not, when the Refugee Act of 1980 (Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden and Jimmy Carter) became law, states could choose whether to become a resettlement state.

Wyoming (wisely) managed to stay out of the resettlement system all these years and that rankles those who are working to change America by changing the people.

In a piece titled “One state has never taken in refugees. Will it welcome Afghans?,” the Post explores a proposal by a local Episcopal church in Casper, Wyoming, to take in Afghans.

The Post interviewed a series of individuals for the piece, including those who said Afghan resettlement in Wyoming could “help with diversification” and break from their “conservative beliefs.”

For new readers here are the nine major refugee contractors financed by the US taxpayer who are now busy placing Afghans (who are not refugees!) in cities and towns from sea to shining sea.

They operate with the assistance of at least 100 subcontractors all linked back to one of the nine motherships.

The nine along with the US State Department determine target resettlement sites.

 

 

 

The Middle East Moves to Michigan

First it was Iraqis and soon it will be Afghans who call Michigan home…

Michigan Live has done a very good job of analyzing refugee data and pointing out that Michigan is in the top five most ‘welcoming’ states in America when it comes to refugees, especially Muslims from the Middle East!

Michigan among top 5 states for most refugees in the last decade

Michigan received the fourth-most refugees of any state in the last decade.

Michigan admitted 30,467 refugees from 52 countries since 2010, according to the U.S. Department of State, and more than half immigrated from Iraq. Michigan was a top destination for refugees during a spike caused by the Iraq War, and the state is expected to be a key player in the effort to resettle refugees seeking a new start after the Afghanistan War ended last month.

Texas, California and New York were the only states to bring in more refugees since 2010. Texas nearly doubled Michigan’s total with 59,878 refugees.

Michigan ranked 11th in the country for refugees per 100,000 residents. Plains states — North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Idaho — led the nation in refugees per capita.

Five states during the last decade — Texas, California, New York, Michigan, and Arizona — received one-third of all refugees resettled nationwide.

There is much more about other states too.  This is a screenshot of an interactive map Michigan Live published. Go check it out.

One important point the Michigan story highlights is that refugees do move from where they were originally placed by a resettlement contractor.

They move to live with their own cultural groups, in other words, they move to be with their own kind of people.  It is funny that no one calls them racist for that!

So once an enclave has begun to build, it will grow.   Somalis to Minnesota is a case in point.

EditorApologies from me for not being able to keep up with everyone’s requests for information.  I am overloaded on all fronts as I try to maintain some balance in my life.  Some of you have noticed that I have deactivated my Facebook page—yes, I have.

My e-mail boxes are full and overflowing! The very best way to reach me is to send a comment to this post if there is something you want me to see.  I do review and moderate comments every day or so, and if you have sent me  some information that is off topic, I won’t post it, but will see it.

South Dakota one of Four States that won’t get Afghan Evacuees (yet!)

“We had really significant concerns about our ability to provide the level of support to help make that integration successful.”

(Rebecca Kiesow-Knudsen of Lutheran Social Services South Dakota)

 

Wow! I can’t believe a refugee contractor is actually telling the truth!  No, they don’t have the resources and neither does South Dakota or America for that matter!

I was amazed to see that the AP reporter actually remembered that Noem was one of the virtue-signaling Republican governors who told Donald Trump no thanks in 2019 when he tried to give the governors veto power to stop refugee resettlement in their state.

 

Republican Governor Kristi Noem will get the credit, or the blame, for blocking the Afghans depending on which side of the great divide one resides.

I had a couple of other things I had planned to write about today until I saw this AP story.

Both other possibilities are stories written by John Binder at Breitbart who is really on top of the news about the flood of ‘new American workers and voters’ Biden is pulling in from around the world.

Heck, they won’t have to cheat in elections once they change the electorate!

From AP (where they have gotten something right in their headline—these are mostly not refugees!):

South Dakota is 1 of 4 states not resettling Afghan evacuees

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota is one of four states, along with the District of Columbia, that won’t be resettling any of the nearly 37,000 Afghan evacuees who made it to the U.S. during the final days of its chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan last month.

Lutheran Social Services of South Dakota, which is the state’s refugee resettlement agency, decided not to accept any Afghans after weighing local conditions and its ability to resettle them.

Rebecca Kiesow-Knudsen, the group’s chief operating officer, said Thursday that those arriving from Afghanistan without special immigrant visas are currently not eligible to work or receive federal aid to help them resettle.

“We had really significant concerns about our ability to provide the level of support to help make that integration successful,” she said.

Kiesow-Knudsen said the agency was facing a “rapidly evolving situation” that could change depending on whether Congress decides to provide funding and work eligibility for evacuees who have not been granted refugee status.

How financially burdened will your state be?

The Biden administration this week began telling governors and state refugee coordinators how many Afghan evacuees they would receive.

The numbers ranged from more than 5,200 people who are headed to California to as few as 10 being resettled in Alabama and 10 in Mississippi.

South Dakota, along with Hawaii, West Virginia, Wyoming and the District of Columbia, are not expected to resettle anyone from the first group.  [Really those Libs in DC and in Hawaii should be rewarded with refugees and they almost never get any!—ed]

Republican Gov. Kristi Noem last month expressed reservations about accepting evacuees from Afghanistan. She told KSFY-TV, “We do not want them coming here unless we know they are an ally and a friend, and that they don’t want to destroy this country.”

Noem in 2019 decided to continue allowing refugees to be resettled in the state after former President Donald Trump attempted to allow states to opt out of the program.

Remember this.  In American anyone can move and that includes migrants of all stripes.  Afghans may be placed in most states but they won’t end up there. As tribal people, as soon as they can they will be heading to enclaves where other Afghans have settled because they will want to be with their own kind of people.

LOL! We should take bets on how quickly the Afghans get out of places like Vermont (brrr!) and even places like Minnesota where the territorial Africans (who don’t see the ‘joys of diversity’) will be making it hard on the Afghans.

Massachusetts Jewish ‘Refugee’ Contractor: We can’t do all this work without money!

Of course I have been making the point for 14 years—these so-called religious charities that resettle refugees in the US (the Afghans are not legitimate refugees!) would quickly go belly-up if they had to find private money for their religious charitable work.

They can’t raise enough money to place thousands of refugees without the federal dole, so what does that tell you?  It tells me that there isn’t popular support from average Americans for what they are doing!

I’m not picking on Massachusetts or this Jewish resettlement agency, it just happens that this story, of MANY stories that are coming to my attention, came to me as I sat down to write a post for today.

This complaint is everywhere—-too many evacuees, little payment for services for the contractors, no affordable housing and these Afghans, most of them, won’t be eligible for welfare including food stamps unless Congress changes the law.

Somehow the chosen towns and its citizens are going to have to cough up the financial support.

And, you can be sure they won’t be put up in Hyannis! 

That would only be fair since it was ol’ Teddy himself who created the refugee admissions program and the Special Immigrant Visa program for Iraqis and Afghans.

You can be sure that no Afghans will be housed at Massachusetts’s Hyannis Harbor Hotel!

 

Before I give you the story, know that the contractors*** are knocking on doors that were previously slammed in their faces—like this one in Rutland, Vermont.

From Masslive:

Nearly 1,000 Afghan refugees are set to arrive in Massachusetts – are we ready?

Roughly 1,000 Afghan evacuees are going to be rehoused in Massachusetts communities, Maxine Stein, president and CEO of the Jewish Family Service of Western Massachusetts (JFSWM), told MassLive on Thursday, although the specific date is yet to be confirmed.

The problem for non-profits like JFSWM is funding and permanent housing.

[….]

Republican Governor Baker: Welcome Afghans whoever you are!

Gov. Charlie Baker issued a public statement on Aug. 17, at the height of the crisis in Afghanistan that Massachusetts is ready to assist Afghan refugees seeking safety and peace in America, but little has been revealed on the state’s plan for the intake.

 

Where is the MONEY?

So far no money has been promised to aid the work the charities are doing to rehouse the refugees and Baker’s office has not laid out any guarantee of support.

“I think we’re getting to a point now where we’re being asked to do all of this work, and that’s wonderful, but we are given no resources to do it,” said Stein. “The state of Massachusetts is welcoming Afghan refugees, but we need to see some financial support.”

JFSWM is looking at three communities to house the 150 Afghan evacuees they can help: Framingham, Pittsfield and Springfield.

If you live in one of those Massachusetts towns and you aren’t happy with what you are hearing, you better speak up now or forever hold your peace!

Check out my archives to see that Springfield, Mass, a working class town, has been a real pocket of resistance over the years.  Nevertheless, the State Department continued to shove refugees down the mayor’s throat.

***The primary contractors have around 100 subcontractors working for them….

The Springfield Jewish agency is a subcontractor of HIAS.

Afghan Evacuees are Going to Kentucky etc. etc. etc….

The other day I mentioned that you could check this list of existng resettlement sites and have a good idea if your community was going to be ‘welcoming’ Afghan evacuees and Special Immigrant Visa holders that Biden flew out of Afghanistan in the last week.

Of course there are caveats.  First, longtime readers know that new arrivals can be placed within 100 miles of the listed office, and secondly, they are permitted to move anywhere they wish and many will.  That is because they will want to live with their own kind of people where existing enclaves of their particular ethnic group have settled.

But, just you try to say you want to live with your kind of people and watch the moral outrage!  Funny how it isn’t considered racist or phobic in any way when the situation is reversed.

I also said I would tell you another method to find out if you were going to be the lucky recipients of mystery (they loaded up many who had no discernable reason to be getting seats on planes to America) Afghans is to (duh!) check your local papers as one of my readers did for Kentucky. See here:

Richmond Register:

Kentucky prepares to resettle up to 775 Afghan evacuees amid challenges

To test it out for you, I simply searched for Maryland and Afghan refugees (although most are NOT legitimate refugees) and presto up popped many articles from the last week or so including some about how our Republican Governor Larry Hogan has his arms open to invite them in!

Within a few minutes I saw stories from Michigan, Utah, New York, Massachusetts and Tennessee.

Another suggestion I have had in the past is to find someone with gumption to infiltrate your local ‘Interfaith group’ because they will be the first to be in on the action and in the know about who is coming especially if the new arrivals will be Muslims (which the majority of Afghans will be).

Okay, so when you get that information (assuming you are unhappy about it), what do you plan to do?

Are you planning to yak on social media about how it isn’t fair, that you had no say in the matter?  Are you going to mount your high horse and fume about the Constitution and State’s rights as one “Constitutional Republican” did in recent days.  In a comment shared with me, he fumed about Arizona’s Governor Ducey and asked why Ducey couldn’t just tell Biden NO, no Afghans should be dropped in Arizona.

WTH!!! Do you really think that the Open Borders Left plays fair and gives a flying c*** about prissy high-minded notions like what is Constitutional and what isn’t?  And, besides, where were you all when President Trump did try to give governors the opportunity to stop resettlement?  I reported extensively on his efforts.

Arizona’s Ducey was one of the Republican governors who told Trump, no thanks, the feds could continue sending refugees to Arizona at will. 

Obviously not enough Arizona voters have told Ducey they are unhappy with him.

Only Texas Governor Abbott said he supported Trump in a bid to get his state’s right back!  (If you are wondering, DeSantis and Kemp remained silent, the contractors sued and stopped Trump, and that was the end of it).

Breaking News! Texas Governor Abbott Says NO! Will not Accept More Refugees in 2020

So, back to my question: what are you going to do besides fume on social media? 

Are you simply going to read more news at sites that agree with you, shake your head and fume some more?  I’ve already told you what you have to do in my series on Fighting Back Locally.

Sorry I never finished it, but I saw little interest in it from my readers.  Frankly I assume that was because it takes more work than reading news and yakking to like-minded people on Facebook, etc.

In my opinion, that is what is wrong with conservatives generally —we think our high-minded ideas are going to sway the debate. Fat chance!

What do we do now? Fight Back Locally!

 

If it is too hard for you to stick your necks out (and I understand that) even with the help of a few friends to speak up locally, or organize group of activists like the Left does, then at least now, more than ever, you must get to work on political campaigns for 2022!

And, let those who are in office now know what you think about the migrant invasion from all fronts.  Pounce every time they make a move that you disagree with.

Find good pro-America candidates at all levels of government!

Then you better find candidates who put America First and work on those campaigns.  Go to every campaign debate you can get to and ask the candidates in front of the audience and the media about immigration and where they stand!

You can choose to stay silent and watch them change America by changing the people, or speak up now, risk being labelled a racist (who cares!) and maybe, just maybe, pull America back from the brink!
