Australia “Dumb” Deal Near Completion as over 1,000 Rejected Asylum Seekers Approved for US Resettlement

President Donald Trump honored a deal, he called it dumb, that Barack Obama made with the Australian government just before leaving office in 2016.  The deal was that the US would ‘welcome’ illegal aliens that have been held in Australian offshore detention camps.

The AP is reporting that the US part of the deal is almost done and by spring 1,100 of the detained, mostly Muslim men, will be settled in unknown towns and cities in the US.

But, a deal implies we get something from it, right?

Supposedly Australia is taking asylum seekers from Honduras and El Salvador who have made their way to Costa Rica.  Costa Rica!  Why are they our problem???

Here is the rub, I could only find a story or two from 2017 about 30 Central Americans being flown from Costa Rica to Australia.  There might be more somewhere, but the media isn’t reporting it.

So we are getting over a thousand, mostly single men, and Australia gets a handful of ‘refugees’ that were already safe in Costa Rica!

Here is what the AP is saying:

Australia: Most of 1,100 refugees in US deal have resettled

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — The United States is expected to have resettled more than 1,100 refugees by early next year under a deal President Donald Trump reluctantly honored with Australia, an Australian official said on Monday.

“New Americans” waiting for their ticket to your town!

President Barack Obama’s administration struck a deal in 2016 to accept up to 1,250 refugees from Iran, Bangladesh, Somalia and Myanmar whom Australia had banished to Pacific island camps.

Trump condemned the deal as “dumb” but agreed to honor the U.S. commitment, subject to “extreme vetting” of the refugees.

The United States has resettled 870 refugees since October 2017 and around 250 more have received provisional approval to make new homes in the United States, Home Affairs Department deputy secretary Marc Ablong told an Australian Senate committee.

While resettlement had been disrupted in recent months by the pandemic, Ablong said Australia expected the last of the refugees accepted by the United States to be resettled by March or April.

The resettlement deal “is operating very effectively to date,” Ablong said.

[….]

New Zealand’s offer to take 150 refugees a year has been refused while the United States continues to accept them.

[….]

Some see the U.S. resettlement deal as repayment for Australia agreeing to accept Honduran and Salvadoran refugees under a U.S.-led resettlement program from a camp in Costa Rica.

More here.

Other than an article or so in 2017, I have never seen the media report exactly how many Central Americans were sent to Australia from Costa Rica to ‘honor’ our part of the deal.

But, I repeat, why are Central Americans who are safe in a safe country, Costa Rica, our problem in the first place?  

We got zip, zero, nada from this deal!

France: Leftists Demand Legal Status for Migrants Day After Islamic Terror Attack

Invasion of Europe news….

The man who beheaded a school teacher on Friday because the teacher dared to use the Mohamed cartoons as a prop in a class on free speech was a refugee welcomed to France.

Yesterday Socialists (including Antifa) staged a pro-immigrant rally in Paris demanding that the undocumented be given legal status.

You may have noticed that we have been free of large demonstrations promoting  Open Borders and relatively free of any Islamic supremacist agitation in the last year or so.  That is not an accident.

Our extremists know they must lay low in the lead-up to the presidential election only two weeks away now.  But, know that if Biden is elected they will turn on the heat so that a Biden Administration gets the ‘nudge’ to do what it has promised.

Here is Breitbart reporting on the Paris demonstration that took place on Saturday:

Protesters Demand Migrant Amnesty in Paris Day After Migrant Terror Attack

Thousands of pro-migration protesters took to the streets of Paris, demanding that the French government give amnesty to the “undocumented” migrant population just one day after a Chechen migrant is believed to have beheaded a teacher in Paris.

On Saturday, several thousand protesters were seen marching in the French capital — defying the country’s China virus lockdown measures — as a part of the ‘March of Solidarity’ for migrants “without papers” — a left-wing euphemism for illegal aliens.

The organisers of the protest, which included the Federation of Associations of Solidarity with All Immigrants (FASTI), also called on the government to close migrant detention centres and provide “housing for all”, according to Le Figaro.

European Parliament member Leïla Chaibi, of the democratic socialist La France Insoumise party, joined the protest, writing on social media:

“This afternoon, I was alongside the undocumented migrants, who marched in numbers in the streets of Paris for equality and dignity.”

Video footage shared on social media showed thousands of closely packed demonstrators marching through the streets of Paris, and HuffPost France reporter Pierre Tremblay described the scenes as “excited”.

“Thousands of people have come to Paris to support this movement of undocumented migrants for their regularization,” Tremblay reported.

[….]

The protest in Paris took place one day after a teacher was beheaded by, according to local reports, a Chechen migrant.

French President Emmanuel Macron confirmed on Friday that the beheading was “an Islamist terrorist attack” perpetrated against an educator “teaching his students about the freedom of expression”.

The teacher, Samuel Paty, had reportedly shown his students caricatures of the Islamic prophet Mohammed from the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which sparked a terror attack in 2015.

He showed the cartoon during a class on freedom of speech. This is said to have caused an uproar amongst Muslim parents, despite Paty asking Muslim students to leave if they might feel uncomfortable prior to the lesson.

[….]

The 18-year-old Chechen, named as, Abdullakh Anzorov, was shot dead by police following the beheading. He was granted a residency card in March of this year after coming to the country as a refugee.

More here.

Biden, who helped design the Refugee Act of 1980 with Ted Kennedy, has promised 125,000 refugees will be admitted to the US in his first year in office. He says he will top his old boss’s record.

And, btw, the US State Department has removed the data base which allows you to know where the refugees are coming from and where they are placed.

Europe is done! If Biden and the socialists are elected here, we will soon follow Europe’s lead on the path to obliterating Western Civilization.

Catherine Rampell (who?) Calls You/Me a Bigot for Concerns about Refugee Admissions

Who the heck is Catherine Rampell and who cares?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catherine_Rampell   Did Rampell go to the same facial expression school for progressives that Kamala Harris apparently attended?

Rampell is one of those Ivy-league-educated thirty-somethings who has been elevated to a position as morally superior opinion writer (aren’t they all!) at the Leftwing anti-Trump Washington Post.

Neil Munro of Breitbart checked in with me to see how I felt about being a bigot for the last decade plus.

This is what Rampell opined in the Washington Post earlier this month.

Trump’s refugee ceiling is bad for everyone but bigots

Frankly I don’t pay any attention to the name-callers, except that they invigorate me to keep going just when I am ready for blogger retirement.

Once they start making charges against me and others who believe we have a right to know about a program that is changing America—a right to talk about it, to understand how a federal program works and a right to object to it—that we are racists, bigots and xenophobes, I know they are know-nothings.

And, they are weak because name-calling is the last refuge of political agitators whose team is losing.

Here is some of what Munro penned at Breitbart after asking the bigot—me—what I thought of Rampell’s charge.

Washington Post: Only ‘Bigots’ Oppose Large Refugee Inflows

President Donald Trump’s decision to accept 15,000 refugees in 2020 only helps “bigots,” says Catherine Rampell, a pro-migration columnist at the Washington Post.

“The only constituency helped by Trump’s latest cruelty are the bigots and knee-jerk nationalists crafting his policies,” she wrote, under the headline “Trump’s refugee ceiling is bad for everyone but bigots.”

Rampell’s jibe was dismissed by Ann Corcoran, founder of Refugee resettlement Watch, who says the federal importation of refugees expands American poverty, slows technological innovation, and fuels civic conflict. She responded:

There’s no sense trying to argue with [progresives] except to turn it back and say; ‘What about our own poor people? Why aren’t they interested in taking care of our poor Americans? Our homeless? Why are refugees and immigrants somehow cooler and more desirable to take care of than our own poor people? Have we run out of poor Americans to take care of?’ No, clearly, we have not run out of poor Americans.

[….]

Advocates for migration are eager to claim moral superiority over the Americans who want to help Americans, said Corcoran. “They believe we’re bigots — that’s what they’ve been saying for decades — but they know big business uses these refugees to keep wages low,” she said.

[….]

So the hidden agenda for Rampell and many others progressives is political ambition, not charity, Corcoran said. “The bottom line is that these immigrants vote for Democrats,” she said.

“Big business gets the cheap labor, the Democrats get the voters, and Americans get hammered with this humanitarian [B.S.],” she said.

Much more here.

The Left has successfully silenced many good Americans who might speak by effectively deploying the “racist” labeling methodology.  Just get over it, laugh it off, speak up and vote for Donald Trump!

If Trump loses they won’t have to bother with name-calling, they will have real power to silence us!

Refugee Lawyers, HIAS, and MD Senator Chris Van Hollen Preparing to Dump Trump Extreme Vetting

“Building Back” looks like the theme of what the open borders socialists hope will (in a few months) be the post-Trump era.

The International Refugee Assistance Project  (an organization launched in 2018) has produced a report critical of the Trump Administration’s enhanced vetting of refugees from countries that have been terror hotspots around the world.

The Open Borders Lobby with its lawyers is not happy with Trump’s “extreme vetting” and with the help of Maryland Senator Chris Van Hollen are prepping their friends in the media and in Congress for the day when they expect Harris/Biden will fling open America’s gates to tens of thousands of new refugees from countries like Somalia, Syria, Iraq and Iran.

Biden has already signaled that 125,000 is not out of the question beginning in January 2021. Any enhanced security screening would necessarily have to be discarded to facilitate numbers like that.

From the report:

This report was made possible by the efforts of many people outside of IRAP, particularly our clients and co-counsel in JFS [Jewish Family Service of Seattle] v. Trump and Doe v. Wolf. In litigating JFS v. Trump, we worked with the National Immigration Law Center, HIAS, Perkins Coie LLP, and pro bono attorneys Lauren Aguiar, Mollie M. Kornreich, and Abigail Sheehan Davis.

In addition, we are grateful to the office of Senator Chris Van Hollen for his advocacy on behalf of refugees and for sharing the reports to Congress on refugee admissions and vetting that informed this report.

It really doesn’t matter what the report says, this is about setting the tone for the anticipated return of mass migration to make up for what they will call the ‘lost Trump years.’

Trump Administration Admits nearly 12,000 Refugees to US in FY2020; Some Data Will No Longer be Available

The fiscal year ended yesterday and the totals are in at the Refugee Processing Center.

The exact total for the year is 11,814 the lowest number in four decades.

The ceiling for admissions had been set by President Trump at 18,000 and that number likely would have been reached except for the travel restrictions placed by the UN as the Chinese Virus spread around the world.

Of the 11,814, 2,503 (about 20%) are Muslims from mostly Burma, Iraq, Syria, Somalia and Sudan. There is NO Muslim ban.

Making up for lost time, the administration admitted 2,626 in the last 30 days, the highest monthly number for any month in the past fiscal year.

However, for me and I expect for many others tracking refugee admissions on a regular basis, you will have a shock when you see this notice at the Refugee Processing Center.

NOTICE

The Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) of the U.S. Department of State is building a new IT system to facilitate refugee processing. Effective October 9, 2020 at 5:00pm ET, PRM’s Refugee Processing Center will no longer be able to provide certain previously available reports and interactive reporting will no longer be available.

Interactive reporting has been the most valuable portion of the data available and its removal will put us in the dark about which towns refugees are placed, their demographic makeup, their religions, etc.

Are the deep staters getting ready to expand in a Biden administration and want to keep us in the dark about who is coming into the country?

Do Trump’s people even know!

If you have been using that data base, you have a week to capture information through Interactive reporting.  There will be broader data still available, but interactive data allowed for a deeper drill down into information over whatever time period one entered as a parameter, even on a daily basis.

I guess these will be the last maps I will be posting as they are generated at Interactive reporting.

Here is where refugees were placed (11,814) over the last 12 months (the FY runs from October 1 to September 30th of the following year).

Top ten ‘welcoming’ states are California, Washington, Texas, New York, Michigan, Kentucky, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Ohio.

Interesting that so many of those states are states the Dems want to control once they change enough of the people.

 

 

Here is where the refugees arriving in America (2,626) were placed during September:

 

 

For those of you who have never used the data at Interactive reporting, I explained how to do it here in ‘Knowledge is Power IV.‘ Better hurry if you want to try it out and capture some data about your state.

No word yet, as far as I know, about the Presidential determination for FY2021 which is usually submitted to Congress for consultation before October first.

See tag FY2021 for all of my posts in recent weeks on this coming year’s Presidential determination.
