    Refugees and food stamps.

    From oue friends at 100% Fed Up

    Please spread the word on this and tell your friends and family members to call their US Senators and say NO to S.744 and NO to importing Syrians!

    I LOVE YOU ANN CORCORAN-RESETTLEMENT WATCH ROCKS!!! READ AND CONFIRM THAT WE ARE BEING SOLD DOWN THE RIVER BY OUR GOVERNMENT AND ITS SOCIALIST AGENDA. GREAT INFO AND LOTS OF IT CONFIRMING THAT AMERICAN IS NOTHING BUT A REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT ISLAND THAT IS BROKE, BROKE, BROKE BUT THE REFUGEES KEEP COMING.....OY VEY!!!

    FYI-we have already brought close to 12,396 Iraqis to America in the first 8 months of FY2013! Most of them are on food stamps, other public assistance and not working:
    Food Stamp use by refugees jumped dramatically in first year of Obama Presidency:




    ANNUAL REPORT TO CONGRESS:

    https://www.acf.hhs.gov/sites/defaul...o_congress.pdf

    Ahhhhhh! 70% of refugees in the US were on food stamps in 2009! That is up from 50% the year before and a jump of 30% from 2004 when only! 40% were on food stamps (p. 109).

    95% of Iraqi refugees were using food stamps in 2009 (p. 124), but that is understandable because the UNEMPLOYMENT RATE for Iraqis was 46%! 46%! (p.115). And, we are told we need MORE immigrant labor!

    Visit the tables in Appendix A to see the numbers of arrivals from various countries to your states.

    We resettled 17,180 Iraqis in FY 2009 bringing the grand total of resettled Iraqis to 76,205. We resettled 88,915 Somalis through 2009.

    These annual reports are a treasure-trove of information. You all need to go to this one (unfortunately a snap-shot now nearly 4 years out of date) to check out info. on your state. If I read it correctly (as I scanned quickly) top states for refugee welfare were California (80% on some form of welfare!) and even states like Pennsylvania and Georgia were awash in needy refugees.



    JOBLESSNESS OF IRAQI REFUGEES IN THE US:

    The United States usually accepts about half the refugees that the U.N. agency proposes for resettlement. California has historically taken the largest share, but Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia are also popular destinations:
    See your state and the number of refugees they "welcomed":
    http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2013/06/02/the-numbers-wyoming-took-zero-california-welcomed-48813-refugees-since-2007/

    U.N. refugee officials, diplomats and nongovernmental relief groups plan to discuss possible resettlement schemes at a high-level meeting this week in Geneva. Germany already has committed to taking 5,000 people
    Remember as you read this that Lavinia Limon worked for Bill Clinton and brought the Bosnian Muslims here and then the early Iraqis. USCRI is a federal RESETTLEMENT CONTRACTOR, not a “service group.”

    “It was probably inevitable that in this crisis, with these overwhelming numbers, governments would start moving in this direction,” said Lavinia Limon, chief executive officer of the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, a Virginia-based advocacy and service group. “But there will be resistance.”

    The Obama administration supports rebels trying to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad, but is wary of deeper involvement in Syria.

    The issue is politically sensitive on several levels.

    Congress strongly resisted accepting Iraqi refugees, including interpreters who had worked with U.S. forces, after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion. Most lawmakers share White House caution about getting more engaged in Syria and may have little appetite for a major influx.

    The duo of Samantha Power and Susan Rice being involved is further evidence this will be a disaster for your town or city.

    But Susan Rice, President Obama’s new national security advisor, and Samantha Power, Obama’s nominee for U.S. ambassador to the U.N., both have been strong advocates for refugees. They may make the White House more receptive to at least a partial opening.

    Much will depend on who (if anyone!) raises the security issues. Honestly the only really possible opposition leader on this will be Senator Rand Paul who ‘gets it’ about the security risks after the discovery of Iraqi refugee terrorists found to be living in his home town of Bowling Green, KY!

    Homeland security officials require careful vetting of refugees, with multiple interviews and background checks before they are allowed to enter the country. Under normal circumstances, the screening process can take a year or longer.

    U.S. officials are likely to be extra careful with Syrian refugees. As Islamic militants take a more prominent role in the rebel forces, officials worry about fighters with Al Qaeda ties trying to enter the country. Two resettled Iraqis were convicted of trying to send arms to Al Qaeda from their home in Bowling Green, Ky:

    The article goes on to report that Middle Eastern officials say the resettlement won’t be worth it if we and other Western countries don’t take tens of thousands!

    Then we have some, pardon the expression, Bull S*** from the State Department:

    Western officials try to discourage poor foreigners who are seeking a more comfortable life or business opportunities in the West. They say resettlement is only for those who can’t go home, and seek to dispel notions that an easy life awaits.

    According to a State Department publication aimed at refugees, “Cars are not provided…. Most Americans value self-reliance and hard work. They expect newcomers to find jobs as soon as possible and to take care of themselves and their families.” [67% of Iraqis are not working and 95% are on food stamps. And, as for this business about cars, we don't provide cars but YOU pay into a matching savings account that every refugee is allowed to set up and purchasing a car is one of the programs goals.---ed]

    Another sensitive issue is who qualifies for resettlement. Western countries often prefer intact, well-educated families with familiar religious backgrounds. [Gee, that's news!---ed]

    But experts say 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. [These will be very costly refugees who will be bringing the men as soon as they can!---ed]

    Please spread the word on this and tell your friends and family members to call their US Senators and say NO to S.744 and NO to importing Syrians!

    Please send this to your facebook and twitter friends!

    Update June 11: UN wants Germany to take 10,000, here. Next we will hear that the UN wants the US to take 50,000 when we have just committed to take 50,000 Congolese.
