la-fg-syria-refugees-20130610-001-150x150Propagandists are attempting with much success to attack any American citizen who stands against the Immigration Bill and secured borders as a racist.  Have we not grown tired of this worn out term used to slander anyone who defends our Nation’s Sovereignty?  This is not about a racial war between Hispanic and Caucasian despite what liberal/progressive media paints.  This is OUR country regardless whether your last name is Schmidt, O’Brien, Lopez, Francois, or Jones.

 If you are not Native American and your ancestors came to this country during the 17th Century more than likely they came from England.  During the 17th Century approximately 175,000 Englishmen colonized the New England area.  Fleeing from England’s tyrannical government, seeking religious freedom they consisted of Judo-Christians.  Historians estimate that fewer than one million immigrants perhaps as few as 400,000 crossed the Atlantic during the 17th and 18th centuries.  From 1836 to 1914, over 30 million Europeans migrated to the United States.

On June 28, 1968, two democratic Senators, along with heavy backing by Senator Ted Kennedy pushed through a bill, against the outcry of the majority citizens of the United States.  As President Lyndon Johnson signed the bill into law at the foot of the Statue of Liberty, its proponents assured that passage would not influence America’s culture significantly. President Johnson called the bill “not a revolutionary bill. It does not affect the lives of millions”, while Secretary of State Dean Rusk estimated only a few thousand Indian immigrants over the next five years, and other politicians, including Senator Ted Kennedy, hastened to reassure the populace that the demographic mix would not be affected; these assertions would later prove wildly inaccurate.

 The Bill lifted immigration restrictions from Latin American, Asia, Middle East and Africa. Before passage of the Hart-Celler Act, immigration accounted for only ten percent of population increase in the U.S.  Ethnic and racial minorities US Census Bureau rose to 36.6 percent as measured by the results from the 2010 census. Similarly, during the same time period the non-Hispanic white population in the United States decreased from 75 percent of the overall US population in 1990 to 63.4 percent during the year 2011. It is estimated that before the year 2032 non-Hispanic whites will be a minority in the United States

We are Americans, but since when did being America mean we did not have the right to protect our borders, or our Civilization?

A history of immigrants have flooded the shores over history, landing on Ellis Island with hope in their hearts, they kissed the ground of a promise of opportunity and freedoms.  They did not sulk past our borders laden with narcotics from Central America, or the Middle East to distribute to junkies in the streets of Chicago and LA.  They came with meager belongings and a willingness to work the land or shops.  The immigrants of our past did not expect free housing, medical care, transportation, food, college tuition, cash and an Obama phone.  They only expected to make a better life for themselves and their children.

We have wonderful immigrants from all walks of life and from every corner of the world, and this fact have made our country all the richer in heritage, but at what point should this heritage be compromised?  Integration by immigrants into the host country’s culture has always been the key to survival for every civilization.  Now we have taken in immigrants both legal and illegal, as well as refugees from the Middle East who make demands that our systems and our customs be set aside and that we should accommodate their religion and customs.

Recent debates are centered on the 11 million known illegal aliens, which are expected to be in excess of 20 million by the passing of the Immigration Reform Bill.  Most assume we are talking about Hispanics from Mexico, but are we?  Between the Middle East are ties with South America, Central America, and Mexico’s drug lords and human trafficking gangs.  This traffic runs north through our borders and directly ties to urban cities such as Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York.  It is a known fact that terror networks from Al Qaeda and Hezbollah train and travel out of South America, yet we still have a government who refuses to secure our borders.

Many Hispanics have paid dearly to come to the United States and make a better life for their families, to escape the very element we are welcoming into our home towns.  The Saudi’s that hi-jacked our passenger planes on September 11, 2001 came across those very borders that Janet Napolitano refuses to patrol.  How exactly is the Department of Homeland Security keeping our homeland secure?  The DHS considers American Citizens more of a threat that the drug runners, gang members, and human traffickers crossing the California, Texas, and Arizona borders.  The DHS ignores the facts that In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide target illegal aliens, and that two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants are for illegal aliens.

California Department of Justice study reported that 60 percent of the 20,000 member 18th Street Gang in southern California are illegals.

But just for a moment let us put aside the debate of illegal aliens and look at another influx in our Nation.  This immigration is for the most part unknown by the majority of the country.  I am speaking of the PRM-Refugee Program within the United States.  Most would shudder to know that the UN made demands of wanting 5.1 BILLION for the Syrian refugee situation.  The United States has already contributed $510 Million in relief funds for the Syrian refugees.  It is even more disturbing that in addition to the funding, the administration has obligated to take in 70,000 additional refugees this year.  DHS announced Monday that the first 10,000 will be relocated within the US immediately.

Why would this be a problem for the US?  The U.N. expects the United States to accept about half the refugees that the agency proposes for resettlement. California has historically taken the largest share, but Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia are also popular destinations.  Syrian refugees are heavily infiltrated by Islamic militants who take a prominent role in the rebel forces, namely Al Qaeda will try to enter the country. Two resettled Iraqis were convicted of trying to send arms to Al Qaeda from their home provided by the refugee program in Bowling Green, Ky.  Susan Rice, President Obama’s new national security adviser, and Samantha Power, Obama’s nominee for U.S. ambassador to the U.N., both strong advocates for refugees, made the White House receptive to the new influx of Islamic refugees.

80% of the Syrian refugees are women and children, many with war-related injuries or psychological problems that could hamper finding work or going to school.  Under the PRM, Refugee Program, all refugees are eligible for government assistance immediately without the typical wait.  Local affiliates of national refugee resettlement agencies arrange food, housing, clothing, employment, counseling, medical care, and other immediate needs for refugees during the first 90 days after arrival. In addition, refugee resettlement agencies often provide longer-term support for refugees to help them adjust and transition to life in America. The Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration map shows the locations of Reception and Placement program affiliate sites around the country.

Affordable Care Act

Refugee status is a form of protection that may be granted to people who meet the definition of refugee., a website managed by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, provides resources that describe the Affordable Care Act and how it will improve Americans’ access to health care. Refugees, as lawfully present immigrants, are eligible for the same protections and benefits under the Affordable Care Act as U.S. citizens. Refugees will remain exempt from the five-year waiting period to receive Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and will receive many new benefits thanks to health reform.

“The benefits and protections in the Affordable Care Act are particularly important for refugees, who often arrive to the U.S. after years without access to proper medical care, and in many cases work for employers who do not provide health insurance. As outlined below, the new law will give refugees access to affordable health coverage and protection against insurance practices that can deny coverage to individuals with pre-existing conditions or those who become ill.”

This is not a refugee problem of 70,000 Syrian Islamic refugees; this is a symptomatic out of control Government. From 1999-2009, the determination has allowed for up to 70,000 to 91,000 refugees to come to the U.S. each year for resettlement.  The Center for Immigration Studies has called for a “wide-ranging review” of the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP). CIS said the program is out-of-control and “rife with fraud.”  Hundreds of non-governmental organizations benefit from U.S. taxpayer dollars, but often neglect refugees after they settle in the U.S.  CIS said the admissions process has been “surrendered” to the UN and to the NGOs.

Current policy is troubling in light of a world at war and potential threats to the U.S. CIS said “meaningful background checks are difficult to obtain.” Many countries simply have no reliable records, and as a result, criminals, fugitives and terrorists have all used USRAP to gain entry.

Our welfare system works as a magnet for refugees just as it does for illegal aliens. CIS said the cost of the domestic resettlement program is probably 10 times the official estimates of $1.1 billion annually.

Programs offered upon entry to ALL refugees:

Routine testing is no longer the norm although refugees may have expensive medical conditions like HIV, hepatitis, TB, and malaria. No one has asked about the impact of this on US medical costs, but taxpayer dollars are part of the mix.

Quality affordable healthcare for refugees – under the new law, refugees enjoy:

The same protections and benefits in the insurance market as U.S. citizens, such as prohibiting lifetime benefit limits and recessions.

Medicaid coverage will be available to anyone under 65 with incomes up to 133% of the federal poverty level, including refugees
Because even poor adults often are ineligible for Medicaid, many adult refugees become uninsured after their eight months of Refugee Medical Assistance is exhausted. Starting in 2014, Medicaid will be available to anyone – including parents and childless adults – who meet the income criteria.
Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) extended
The law increases federal funding for CHIP from 2015 to 2019. CHIP will continue to provide affordable, quality coverage to many children in refugee families.

An end to discrimination by insurance companies

Effective 2014, states must extend Medicaid coverage up to age 26 for young adults who have aged out of the foster care system, including those aging out of the Unaccompanied Refugee Minors program

All educational grants, scholarships and financial assistance offered to American Citizens are also offered to refugees.  Example:  Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica, New York, boasts of 400 refugee college students on governmental grants and aide.

Tyson Making HUGE Profits, lobbies for more Islamic Refugees to be brought to the United States

Many groups have “stated openly” they will not assimilate into our culture.  Recent events in Mansfield, Tennessee are a prime example.  Tyson foods a huge proponent of refugee hires, pushes legislation to bring in more of these Islamic workers in the area.  Legislators came upon great civic uprising for the bills being passed in the State Senate giving extended federal benefits above and beyond taxpayer’s benefits of the same household earnings.  State and FBI official’s threats of criminal charges for Sharia Blasphemy laws were met by protests of Americans standing up in defense of their First Amendment Rights.

Tyson is making a killing on the profit end of this arrangement:  100 percent of their expenses, wages and fringe benefits are reimbursed by the US Government for a period of nine months, with those 9 months subject to renewal.  This past Monday, DHS extended that those benefits for all refugees within the US.

“Subsidized positions may be in either public or private sector organizations. Grantees must establish a network of relationships with appropriate public or private employers to identify and develop suitable subsidized positions. Through written contractual agreements, grantees may use funds to reimburse employers for up to 100 percent of the employment wage (including fringe benefits), for a maximum of nine months. In exchange for the salary subsidy, the employer agrees to provide the refugee employee additional supervisory assistance in learning the job and to retain the refugee employee in this position after the wage subsidy has ended. If insufficient funds are available to continue the position, the employer agrees to assist the refugee employee in securing other employment.”

Tyson – the Halal supplier of the US
In Tennessee, Tyson Foods caters to the influx of Somali refugees, and prefers to hire them over U.S. Citizens with promises to the Somalis of $3,500 per year for college costs, 100% reimbursement for naturalization applications, full-time interpreters on site, financial assistance, on-site banking, and tax preparation services.

In Iowa, Tyson is gearing up to bring in a new influx of Burmese refugees, most are Islamic as well.  In Myanmar the Buddhists have caused the Islamic and Christians to flee in fear of persecution, as the militant government there refuses to allow other religions to threaten their culture.
In Arkansas, Tyson is bringing in Burma refugees as well.
Just how many refugees are in the United States?  
It is a hard question to give; most governmental sites due to the TRANSPARENCY stopped making the numbers public after the year 2009.  The total estimate that is known to be in the United States hits close to 3.0 MILLION in number.
In just the year 2013, Iraqi refugees’ number 84,902, with another 199,202 approved for relocation to the US.
Burmese refugees brought in the US as of April 2013 number, 66,134.
Add to these numbers the promised 70,000 additional refugees from Syria, and this is only 3 of the list of locations indicated on the DHS plan for relocation to the US.

Countries that are in the plan for refugee relocation according to the DHS documents:

  1. Afghanistan
  2. Bhutan
  3. Burma
  4. Burundi
  5. Central African Republic
  6. Chad
  7. Colombia
  8. Cuba
  9. Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK)
  10. Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)
  11. Eritrea
  12. Ethiopia
  13. Haiti
  14. Iran
  15. Iraq
  16. Republic of Congo (ROC)
  17. Somalia
  18. South Sudan
  19. Sri Lanka
  20. Sudan
  21. Uzbekistan
  22. Zimbabwe

Up to an additional 150,000 per year visas under family reunification program is also being implemented for refugees located in the United States.  The refugee admitted is considered an ANCHOR and is allowed to bring family members with application as follows:


Under 8 CFR Section 207, a principal refugee admitted to the United States may request following-to-join benefits for his or her spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 if the family has become separated. Once in the United States, and within two years of admission, the refugee may file a Form I-730 Refugee/Asylee Relative Petition5 with DHS/USCIS for each eligible family member. If the Form I-730 is approved by DHS/USCIS (signifying adequate proof of a qualifying family relationship), the National Visa Center then forwards the petition for processing to the embassy or consulate nearest to the location of the beneficiaries of the petition.

Priority for Family reunification according to DHS:

  1. Eurasia and the Baltics
  2. Cuba
  3. Iraqis Associated with the United States
  4. Groups of Humanitarian Concern outside the Country of Origin
  5. Ethnic Minorities and others from Burma in camps in Thailand
  6. Ethnic Minorities from Burma in Malaysia
  7. Bhutanese in Nepal
  8. Iranian Religious Minorities
  9. Iraqis Associated with the United States

The issue of refugee status has been simmering beneath the surface of the U.S. debate on amnesty after bombs were allegedly set off by refugees in Arizona and Boston.

One cannot forget the recent Boston Bombing by the Tsarnaev brothers, supposedly here as refugees seeking political asylum.  But when did political asylum mean trips back and forth to his home country, apparently not fearful about his safety. A man who faces “serious harm” isn’t likely to seek it out.  “Refugees are generally people outside of their country who are unable or unwilling to return home because they fear serious harm. For a legal definition of refugee, see section 101(a)(42) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).”

In December, 2012,  Abdullatif Aldosary  bombed a Casa Grande, Arizona social security office with an improvised explosive device (IED). Investigators reportedly found hundreds of rounds of ammo, large amounts of chemicals and instructions on bomb-making in his home.  Aldosary was a refugee from Iraq who served time in the Arizona prison system before detonating the IED.

The refugee admissions plan means that the US admits “three times the number of refugees as the rest of the developed world combined.”  When are Americans going to stand up and say enough is enough?  We are no longer a sovereign nation but a country under SIEGE.
