    CAIR, Church World Service, Others, Plan "Civil" Disobedience" at US Capitol this Wee

    CAIR, Church World Service, Others, Plan “Civil Disobedience” at US Capitol this Week

    10/13/2019 ~ Ann Corcoran


    For new readers, Church World Service is one of the nine federal resettlement contractors with subcontractor office spread throughout the US. They receive millions of federal dollars amounting to 62% of their entire budget from you—the US taxpayer. See here.


    Here they plan to join the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) on the Capitol steps looking to get arrested in a protest of the President’s refugee policy.







    CWS CEO McCullough (annual salary $272,000) must enjoy being arrested. Here he is under arrest for an illegal protest of OBAMA’S DEPORTATION POLICIES in 2014. https://cwsglobal.org/cws-ceo-arrest...tion-policies/Press release from Amnesty USA:


    FAITH LEADERS, HUMAN RIGHTS GROUPS, AND FORMER ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF STATE STAGE CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE FOR REFUGEES


    On Tuesday, October 15th, 18 protestors–including heads of Amnesty International USA, America’s Voice, CAIR, and Church World Service, as well as a former Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration–will risk arrest on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. The leaders will wear life vests symbolizing the life-saving refugee resettlement program.


    Faith communities, human rights groups, clergy, refugees, and refugee agencies will hold a major action on Capitol Hill as Secretary Pompeo meets with Congress to finalize the administration’s 80% cut to the refugee admissions program.


    WHAT: Protest and Civil Disobedience Responding to Decimation of Refugee Resettlement

    WHERE: Capitol Lawn Area 9, Constitution and First St NE

    WHEN: Tuesday, October 15th at 1:00 PM

    DETAILS: 18 protestors–including heads of Amnesty International USA, CAIR, America’s Voice and CWS–wearing life vests symbolizing the lives that could be saved or lost through the resettlement program will risk arrest on the steps of the US Capitol. Supporters will hold 95 photographs of refugees, a nod to the historic average refugee cap of 95,000.

    LEADERS RISKING ARREST INCLUDE:

    Anne C. Richard, Former Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) [She’s back!—ed]

    Margaret Huang, Executive Director, Amnesty International USA

    Rev. John L. McCullough, President and CEO of Church World Service

    Nihad Awad, National Executive Director, Council on American-Islamic Relations







    From time to time, and like the Reverend McCullough, CAIR’s Nihad Awad seems to like being arrested on the Hill. Here he is in March of 2018 leading a protest, and, yes, Church World Service is there too. One trick ponies!


    https://refugeeresettlementwatch.org...ill-this-week/
    Frank Sharry, Founder and Executive Director, America’s Voice

    Sarnata Reynolds, former counsel for the House Judiciary Committee

    OTHER SPEAKERS:


    Sami Muya, a Refugee from Somalia separated from family members by anti-refugee policies


    Endnote: I am so happy to have RRW back so history isn’t forgotten and images like those above can continue to be available for all to see.


    You should take a minute and have a look at the church member congregations Church World Service is representing (see this post). Is your church among them?

    There are LOTS of other countries where refugees can seek to be admitted. Panama and Costa Rica have booming economies. Colombia is on the upturn, although Venezuelans are crowding in there. Argentina, Bolivia, Chile---all great places.

    These "refugees" need to stay home and solve their own damn problems!

    No one wants them!

    Shut these programs down and go fix their problems on their soil. Send them all back!

    18 Arrested on Capitol Hill Protesting Trump Refugee Policy, but where was the Media?


    10/16/2019 ~ Ann Corcoran


    Okay, so yesterday was the big protest day for Church World Service and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) so I figured surely there would be gobs of media reports on the success of their anti-Trump protest especially since they succeeded in getting arrested!


    Where is the WaPo? Where is CNN? Anyone see any coverage?


    By the way, who comes up with this hokey stuff?


    The only news I found so far comes from organizers Amnesty International and another Lefty outfit called Common Dreams.






    Is this goofy or what! That is the Rev. McCullough of Church World Service on the far left. He pulls in an annual salary and benefits package of nearly $300,000 from the quasi-government CWS. Looks like Anne Richard, Obama’s refugee chief next to him, and then of course CAIR’s Nihad Awad fourth from the left.Here is Amnesty:


    18 LEADERS ARRESTED TODAY AT THE CAPITOL WHILE PROTESTING TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S DESTRUCTION OF THE REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM


    In response to the Trump Administration’s continued assault on the U.S. refugee resettlement program, 18 leaders from the nation’s leading faith and human rights organizations, as well as a former State Department official, were arrested on Capitol Hill as part of the first ever act of civil disobedience in the name of refugee resettlement. Those 18 arrested represented the 18,000 refugee cap set by the Trump administration – the lowest in the history of the resettlement program.

    Continue reading here if you want to see what each of the protesters had to say. If not, see who sponsored the publicity stunt:


    Today’s protest was cosponsored by: Church World Service, Sahloul, Franciscan Action Network, Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, Center for Victims of Torture, Leadership Conference of Women Religious, NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice, Southeast Asia Resource Action Center, Amnesty International USA, Disciples Refugee and Immigration Ministries, American Arab Anti Discrimination Committee, Congregations Action Network, Presbyterian Church USA, United Church of Christ, Sojourners, NOVA Friends of Refugees/One Journey.


    Where is HIAS I wondered, they usually love to protest in Washington?


    The large gathering…..
