Okay, okay, that is not a surprise, but what is a surprise is that CNN is reporting it and using the word “sharia.” If Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, or Frank Gaffney uttered the following words, cries of “Islamophobia” would be screamed from the roof tops by the likes of Linda Sarsour! Ben Wedeman, in a CNN […]
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/ .

Did you know that February 6th was the ninth annual United Nations day of zero tolerance for the vile practice of female genital mutilation (sometimes referred to as cutting) perpetrated on girls and women worldwide, including in the US? ICE and the Department of Justice released a press statement recognizing the day. Of course the UN wrote about […]
Remember the story from last summer where roving gangs of Somali ‘youths’ got into a “brawl” with locals in the city park in Lewiston, Maine. I wrote about it here. A local Maine man died after being hit by a brick. Breitbart also reported the news, but the story was written before Donald Giusti died from his injuries. […]
And, those Jews who fear the Muslim migration to Germany have done the unforgivable and formed a lobbying group with Germany’s AfD party (think of it as the Germany first! party). When Chancellor Merkel chose these new Germans her political fate was sealed, but did she seal Germany’s fate too? Invasion of Europe news….. From Religion News […]
Invasion of Europe news…. There is exciting news daily coming from Europe where leaders with backbones are emerging to try to stem the tide of migrants from the Middle East and Africa flooding the continent. First in Italy, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini is pushing back against France and Germany who want to send migrants back […]
Invasion of Europe news….. It isn’t just those mean ol’ eastern European countries like Hungary and Poland that are unwilling to accept refugees, Denmark has had enough. So has Austria and Italy. From The Local Denmark: Denmark refuses to take in UN quota refugees in 2018 Denmark said Thursday it would not take in any refugees […]
….and all hell breaks lose! “The Luxembourg [foreign] minister declared this morning that we need migrants because Europe is ageing. I told him I instead work towards young Italians (and Europeans) returning to bringing children into the world, because we don’t want new slaves.” – Matteo Salvini Here is one version of the exchange in […]
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 […]
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 […]
