Daniel Horowitz has penned an excellent (and frightening) analysis of who is being admitted to the US through myriad legal programs (in addition to the usual refugee numbers that we know are way down in recent months). Conservative Review (hat tip: Cathy): Aimless fighting in Afghanistan — while we bring Afghanistan to our shores. Whoever thought […]
About Refugee Resettlement Watch
Eight years ago it came to our attention in Washington County MD that a non-profit group (Virginia Council of Churches) had been bringing refugees into the city of Hagerstown (county seat) for a couple of years. Some problems arose and citizens started to take an interest and ask questions about how this federal program works. Our local paper had no interest in finding the facts, so we decided to find them ourselves.
One of the many startling things we found out about this very quiet effort is that these non-profit groups bring to the US on average each year 15,000 (FY90-FY03) Muslim refugees from the Middle East, Africa, the Balkans, etc, almost completely funded by the US Government through grants and contracts to these non-government agencies. Of the 168 refugees brought to our county since 2004, 125 are Muslim. Although we all have sympathy for persecuted and suffering people there are real questions to be answered about the wisdom of this policy.
It turns out that there are hotbeds of this refugee resettlement controversy throughout the US. We have identified some of those. Because the issue is much more complicated than we initially realized, we have set up this online community organizing center at https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/ .

The Arizona Daily Star has posted a very detailed report on what happened in court in Tucson with the government’s case against a husband and wife team who allegedly had some relationship with Islamic terror group al-Shabab in Africa. See my previous post here. Fraud, fraud and more fraud! So much for Obama’s extreme vetting. I’ve snipped just […]
Fazliddin Kurbanov was already serving a sentence of 25 years on terrorism charges when he tried to kill the warden at California’s Victorville prison. The warden was seriously wounded and scarred for life from the improvised knife attack. Kurbanov is just one of many vetted refugees who have been found to have terrorist or criminal connections and […]
“There’s been nothing else like this, promoted anywhere in the United States which is a message in and of itself.” –Minnesota resident Bob Carrillo But, it isn’t too late for Minnesotans and others to tell the powers-that-be at the US Bank Stadium that you object to the event—an event that celebrates the ritual slaughter of […]
The New York Post editorial yesterday is entitled: The SPLC’s terrible year just got worse It’s been a rough year for the Southern Poverty Law Center — deservedly so. And it just got more difficult, thanks to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The SPLC, formed in 1971 as an aggressive civil-rights nonprofit law firm, has become the left’s […]
“Who would have guessed that a constellation of formerly atheistic, Communist countries would become the vanguard of the family?” – Samuel Hammond writing at National Review. It isn’t just in Hungary either. In Poland and especially in Russia the push is on to encourage marriage and then the all important follow-up—more babies! Why? They want to […]
Here we go again, another violent crime and no one seems to know if the alleged perpetrator is a refugee, or if he is here through some other legal immigration program? Karrar Al Khammasi The story in The Gazette (and on Fox News this morning) reminded me that Colorado Springs has the distinction of being the location where five […]
When I read Mark Steyn’s disheartening ‘America Alone,‘ ten years ago, like Steyn, I saw no hope for Europeans to halt the steep population decline of their people. Italians, Germans, French and Spaniards, etc. just weren’t having enough children to replace themselves while migrant population numbers were skyrocketing. For the first time since I started my ‘Invasion of Europe’ series I […]
Invasion of Europe news… Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban traveled to Germany this week for a pow-wow with Angela (Mama) Merkel over, what else, migrants. Hey, Mr. President, you have had Merkel to the White House, it is now time to invite Orban. Ask him how well his border fence is working and watch media […]
Because I’ve been telling you in advance about the pow-wow in Brussels yesterday about the migrant invasion of Europe and what the EU will do about it, I’m compelled to give you an update of the disappointing results. They talked and talked, indeed they talked all night, and came up with what the NY Times even says is a […]
