~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
On Friday, five Kenyans and 68 Somalians touched down at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi after being deported U. S. immigration officials. This is the second round of deportations of illegals living in the USA from Somalia and Kenya.
Three questions: Why so few? Just the second round? Was Barack Obama one of the Kenyans deported? Okay, that last question is just me being sarcastic.
…An unnamed official told Midnimo the group of illegal immigrants were deported generally because of their immigration status.
“They were deported over immigration issues including lacking papers. We had been informed of their planned arrival,” the anonymous official said. “The Somalis will proceed to Mogadishu while Kenyans will be processed here accordingly.”
This is the second round of mostly Somali illegal immigrants who are being deported under President Trump’s administration and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The first round of deportations for Somalis included 90 illegal immigrant Somalis and two illegal immigrants from Kenya[…]
For those in the refugee resettlement industry, theirs is a sense of entitlement.
Social justice evangelicals and church leaders across the United wrote a letter to President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence asking that the executive order implementing extreme vetting of individuals traveling from jihadist breeding nations and the 90-day moratorium on Syria be rescinded.
More than 500 evangelical leaders from all 50 states signed a letter to President Trump asking him to reconsider his controversial executive order. The letter included the likes of Ann Voskamp, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary President Daniel Akin, and Open Doors USA President and CEO David Curry.
While they acknowledged the order could prevent bloodshed on American soil, America should still be a nation of compassion….
The letter points out that thousands of churches have welcomed and sheltered suffering refugees through the Refugee Resettlement Program[…]
For obvious reasons, the social justice warrior in the Vatican who has labeled the rejection of refugees “an act of war” overlooks those organizations under the umbrella of Christianity receiving hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars from the refugee resettlement program beginning with his own U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Many of the organizations who partake in the refugee resettlement programs are Christian in name only and for the love of financial gain have no problem quoting parables from the Bible and demanding compassion for refugees whose sole agenda is to convert infidels and/or chop off the hands that feed it.
As Christian pastors and leaders, we are deeply concerned by the recently announced moratorium on refugee resettlement. Our care for the oppressed and suffering is rooted in the call of Jesus to “love our neighbor as we love ourselves.” In the story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37), Jesus makes it clear that our “neighbor” includes the stranger and anyone fleeing persecution and violence, regardless of their faith or country.
As Christians, we have a historic call expressed over two thousand years, to serve the suffering. We cannot abandon this call now. We live in a dangerous world and affirm the crucial role of government in protecting us from harm and in setting the terms on refugee admissions. However, compassion and security can coexist, as they have for decades. For the persecuted and suffering, every day matters; every delay is a crushing blow to hope….
World Relief (full name: World Relief Corp. of National Association of Evangelicals) is a social justice organization corporation whose survival and existence is SOLELY dependent upona steady revenue stream of taxpayer dollars.
In addition to World Relief Corporation and US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) mentioned above, below are the major refugee resettlement businesses who receives tens (if not hundreds) of millions of taxpayer dollars for their doing their part in the Hijra with the blessings of Elizabeth Warren, Barack Obama and Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan.
Domestic and Foreign Missionary Service of the Episcopal Church of the USA, Ethiopian Community Development Center (ECDC) [ Episcopal Migration Ministries] [where are the financials?]
What all of the above businesses have in common is that while collecting exorbitant sums of taxpayer dollars, they do very little fundraising. After all, who needs to fund raise when one’s business is on the government welfare without threat of Congressional oversight and demand for accountability?
Those opposing Donald Trump’s executive order under the guise that it is a Muslim ban and “because that’s not who we are” selectively omit that more than half of the refugees being brought in are Muslim.
Theirs is a sense of entitlement as with all corporate elitists and the individual who has become addicted to the government dole, social justice refugee businesses (not charities, nothing charitable about them) fear a decrease in revenue under the Trump administration and are now holding fundraisers. How dare the president put them in such a position (sarcasm).
In December 2015, a George Soros financed group, the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT) held a conference call with journalists (organized by Jenny Yang, vice president of advocacy and policy for World Relief). During the call, EIT released a letter addressed to Congress seeking an increase in the number of refugees from Syria and other nations (dog whistle for “more money”).
In addition, the letter called for Congress to nudge state and local governments into cooperating with refugee resettlement industry. Dog whistle for “do our bidding,” “refugees first” and “more money.”
Work with governors and local communities to welcome refugees. The U.S. refugee resettlement program is a federal responsibility that depends on the cooperation of local and state governments, as well as churches and volunteers. We urge you to work with state and local elected officials to ensure that states continue to fulfill their responsibilities...Our faith inspires us to respond with compassion and hospitality to those fleeing violence and persecution….Compassion is not in conflict with national security.”
“Compassion is not in conflict with national security…” certainly depend on whom one asks.
In response, Mark Tooley, president of the Institute on Religion and Democracy who today opposes the president’s executive order’s response stated:
“The statement also ignores the issue of entrance to USA of persons who may not be directly violent but who support theocratic and jihadist ideology, which obviously is at odds with democratic principles. Immigration and refugee resettlement for our nation is about more than Christian hospitality.”
In the same Breitbart article, Kelly Monroe Kullberg, founder of Evangelicals for Biblical Immigration like many non-social justice Christian organizations are “shocked that Christian charities are accepting so much money from the federal government to bring Muslims refugees into the United States. Imagine the wickedness of using Christians to permanently de-Christianize America. Imagine the suffering that will follow with Sharia law or more advanced Progressive ideology.”
These Soros financed refugee resettlement businesses such as World Relief and their social justice colleagues speak of compassion when in fact, the only compassion that they seek is the bottom line of their check books fed by a never-ending assembly line of refugees irrespective of their ill intent toward Westerners.
The office of Rep. Brian Babin (TX-36) last week released the following statement supporting President Trump’s executive order.
Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Brian Babin (TX-36), who has been a leading critic of America’s United Nations (UN)-led refugee resettlement program, issued the following statement today in support of President Trump’s executive order on extreme vetting:
“I commend President Trump for delivering on his campaign pledge to put a common-sense pause on a broken refugee program and immigration system that has serious national security gaps and is in desperate need of repair….
“As I have been saying for nearly two years, the refugee resettlement program poses a clear and present danger to the American people. We were told by President Obama’s own DHS, FBI and DNI Directors that U.S. intelligence officials cannot properly vet or screen refugees coming from Syria and other terrorist hot spots. We have seen the deadly consequences in Europe as ISIS has already successfully infiltrated its refugee population. Why repeat the same mistakes here?
“As a compassionate Christian, I believe we can and should help displaced refugees by caring for them in safe zones near their own countries. In fact, for the cost of bringing one refugee into America, we can help at least twelve refugees in safe zones….
“Safe zones,” what a novel idea and one that would threaten the check books of USCCB, HIAS, World Relief and their colleagues in the refugee resettlement industry.
How about we blunt the siphoning of taxpayer dollars for purposes that would undermine the Republic courtesy of the true Pagan Christians in the refugee industry.
Just last week, Tucker Carlson interviewed Kevin Appleby, a pro-refugee advocate from The Center for Migration Studies, a lobbying group for those in the business of refugee resettlement.
Appleby’s talking points which Carlson immediately destroys is that by accepting more Syrian refugees, “I would argue it makes us more secure than less secure.” [Good grief. Who writes his material!]
During the discussion, Carlson questions Appleby as to how a church can say that it is our duty as Christians to take in refugees and then force taxpayers to pick up the tab for that which the likes of Appleby “thinks is virtuous.” Appleby has no answer nor can he respond any of Carlson’s challenges. Excellent interview.
Progressives have been lying to Americans for so long, and getting away with it. If they disapprove of the line of questioning, they ignore it and move on but not with Carlson who is relentless.
While they almost always refuse to answer the questions, Carlson is sure to put them on record. Quite refreshing.
The following night Carlson interviewed Mark Hetfield of HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), one of the top nine social justice businesses indicated above. As you can see further up in this post, HIAS is also dependent upon the American taxpayer.
During the discussion, to make his point (fail), Hetfield invokes the Holocaust along with American moral values and like Kevin Appleby, refuses to answer the questions.
Progressives and their con games, used to silence dissent while holding its hand out for taxpayer dollars under the illusion of having compassion for others. All around, theirs is a sense of entitlement.
Planned Parenthood claims that it is “a visible and passionate advocate for policies that enable Americans to access comprehensive reproductive and sexual health care.” THEY lie. PP received by the 2015 fiscal year end $553.7 million in taxpayer dollars. while at the same time decreasing the services, it boasts about providing and increasing its number of abortions.
Anyone who objects are accused of being sexist and waging the war on women while PP snuffs out the lives of the unborn.
Teachers’ unions are never satisfied. There is no room for anyone else in their honey pot and they’re always demanding more because after all, “it is for the children.” THEY LIE as proven by their disdain for school choice, charter schools and school vouchers. On top of it all, they do not educate, they indoctrinate.
Big labor. Again, never satisfied and there is no room for anyone else in their honey pot. Again, theirs is a sense of entitlement.
No different than their fellow Progressives, those in the refugee resettlement industry have no conscience about wielding parables and calling for “compassion” as a weapon to guilt trip and manipulate one towards the desired end just as the grievance industry invokes the race card and then holds their hands out for a payoff for theirs is a sense of entitlement. Anyone who responds otherwise are labeled Islamophobes, racist, etc.
Aware of what is at stake, how Christian and how compassionate is it to ignore the agenda of incoming refugees which is to replace Christianity with Islam as the dominant religion in the United States (although Islam is not a religion), to dominate through jihad. Theirs (refugees) as well is a sense of entitlement.
After having the lay of the land and the White House for the past eight years, donors and co-conspirators of jihadist organizations such as Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR) are furious over President Donald Trump’s coming executive orders to temporarily ban entry of Muslims into the United States from jihadist hot spots.
The Clarion Project reports that the President will call for an indefinite ban of Syrian refugees from Syria and a “120-day ban on refugees from all other parts of the world. At the end of the ban, refugees from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen would be barred an additional 30 days.”
Understandable since the United States has no shortage of problems that should be dealt with first, including threats presiding on U. S. soil brought about by the previous administration’s doubling down of allowing refugees entry while at the same time refusing to vet those coming in. Thus, there are many on U. S. soil that should have never been permitted entry in the first place.
CAIR, fear mongering as usual is in full meltdown mode. Hassan Shibly, executive director of CAIR-Florida told CNN, “These executive orders will not make our nation any safer, rather it will make our nation more fearful and less welcoming, and such restrictions run contrary to (the) very founding principles of our nation…”
Below is an excerpt of the statement released yesterday by CAIR espousing the usual allegations of xenophobia and Islamophobia by Nihad Awad, CAIR’s National Executive Director:
“Make no mistake – whatever language is used in President Trump’s executive orders on refugees, immigration and visa programs – Muslims are the sole targets of these orders.
“These orders are a disturbing confirmation of Islamophobic and un-American policy proposals made during the presidential election campaign.
“Never before in our country’s history have we purposely – as a matter of policy – imposed a ban on immigrants or refugees on the basis of religion, or imposed a religious litmus test on those coming to this nation.
“Ideological and religious questioning imposed on our government agencies by Islamophobes – many of whom are now in policy-making positions – will not make us safer and will instead send a very negative message that Muslims are not welcome in America.
“One of our nation’s darkest moments was during World War II when we turned away Jewish refugees seeking our protection. We cannot allow religious bigotry to affect our willingness and ability to welcome those fleeing violence and persecution….
Awad’s mention of Jews is no accident since organizations such as Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) and the National Council of Churches, all of whom stand with CAIR and are financially dependent upon federal funding under Obama’s refugee program, funding of which is now at stake. [See: State Department Defies President Trump. further down in post.
CAIR’s NYC chapter put together last night an emergency protest of the same suspects that have protested throughout the Obama administration (stealth jihad), as late as last Saturday at the women’s march in Washington DC or at other locations around the nation. There was no shortage of fear mongering as could be heard from the crowd, one woman shouting, “I’m a Muslim, I’m a woman, I’m a Palestinian immigrant, and the idea of living through four years, or possibly eight years of this, is terrifying.”
New York City Communist bureaucrats were also present last night in Washington Square Park from NYC’s Comptroller, Scott Stringer to the thugs in the corrupt New York City Council.
Mind you, these are the same people whose support to ban horse carriages from Central Park changes depending on which way the wind blows and who voted themselves a 32% salary increase one year ago.
If Stringer were to do his job, he’d investigate every council member for fraud and abuse but then who would investigate Stringer? The man is a wuss.
Sumaya Awad, 22, handed out fliers for the International Socialist Organization. Awad, a Muslim Palestinian immigrant, said she understands the importance of standing with her fellow Muslims.
“Trump has attacked basically every part of my identity,” Awad told HuffPost. “I’m a Muslim, I’m a woman, I’m a Palestinian immigrant, and the idea of living through four years, or possibly eight years of this, is terrifying.”
But there’s hope, she said.
“I’m used to having different forms of government and administrations try to silence me, so it’s great to see so many people out here fighting,” she said. “Hopefully this organized resistance continues on tomorrow, and the next week, and the week after….”
While the Huffington post reports that Sumaya Awad (who may or may not be related to Nihad Awad), a student at Columbia University handed out fliers for the International Socialist Organization, they failed to mention that Awad, a Palestinian immigrant is a member of the anti-Semitic organization, Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP).
The second line “Al-Shaab yureed isqat al-nizaam” in Arabic is (الشعب يريد إسقاط النظام), literally translated, it means “The people want to overthrow the regime.”
It was a slogan first used during the Tunisian revolution, which kicked off the Arab Spring, where dozens of totalitarian Islamic nations were either toppled or faced serious street demonstrations. It was also the slogan during the overthrow of Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak.
Ayloush is not just a nominal figure in Leftist circles. In 2012, he was a delegate to the Democratic National Convention and has attended at least two White House meetings, Daniel Pipes is reporting[…]
State Department Officials are actively trying to get as many refugees as they possibly can before Donald Trump’s executive order suspending Syrian refugee resettlement goes into effect Thursday.
The government bureaucrats are working with volunteer resettlement agencies to test the new President’s resolve on his executive order.
These non-profits include Catholic Charities, the Committee For Refugees and Immigrants and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. They’re paid more than $1 billion annually to manage the resettlement of refugees from Syria and elsewhere….
In just the two days since the announcement of the coming executive order, the State Department has admitted a total of 1,087 refugees, bringing the fiscal year total to 31,521….
Obviously, these plans and actions were set into motion before Barack Obama departed the White House and is rationalized by the Progressives attempt to de-legitimize President Trump.
State Department Senior Team has resigned en masse. Of course, the Trump administration planned on replacing them anyway and finally (because I need a break), Hollywood elites, Communist politicians and others in opposition to President Trump’s ban are threatening to sign up as Muslims. Stealth jihad is a success and those signing up are assholes.
That worn out feminist hag, former Secretary of State and globalist, Madeleine Albright tweeted earlier:
I was raised Catholic, became Episcopalian & found out later my family was Jewish. I stand ready to register as Muslim in #solidarity.
The usual Marxist jackasses are leading the call to register as Muslim with Moveon.org creating a online petition. The intent is to de-ligitimize President Trump’s agenda while pushing the illusion that the executive order will go up in smoke.
