    Minnesota: Opposition to Welcoming America is growing….

    Minnesota: Opposition to Welcoming America is growing….

    Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 7, 2018

    … more citizens are waking up to Leftwing community organizing tactics!

    The Winona Daily News published a story last evening that is mostly meant to show that opposition to Welcoming America is coming froma bunch of nativist naysayers, but for me it shows how grassroots activists (paid by no one!) have been successful in educating small communities across the upper Midwest about the goals of the Soros-spawned Welcoming America community organizers.

    I first heard of Welcoming America in 2013 when they were a featured presenter at a meeting in Lancaster, Pennsylvania put on by the Obama Office of Refugee Resettlement.

    The ORR had contracted them to beat back “pockets of resistance” to refugee resettlement.

    You should take a moment to read that post.

    It is a good thing I quoted the Soros connection directly from Welcoming America’s website at the time because that page is mysteriously absent from their site now!

    For the really ambitious among you, please see my entire archive on Welcoming America and its founder David Lubell. They are your classic, hard Left community organizers promoting diversity is beautiful for your towns (more Democrat voters and more cheap labor!).

    But, it is more than that…..

    They are changing America by changing the people!

    And using taxpayer dollars to do it!

    I just checked ProPublica here and learned that Welcoming Americareceived these “government contracts” in addition to the Clinton Foundation money mentioned by the Winona Daily News:

    (numbers rounded)
    2013: $199,000
    2014: $156,000
    2015: $165,000
    2016: $277,000

    Think about it! Your money is used to do political community organizing!

    Now back to the story about how youhave slowed their momentum in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin!
    Winona was the first in the state to join Welcoming America; why haven’t others followed?

    When Fatima Said asked the Winona City Council to join a national move to embrace immigrants, refugees and all other newcomers, the council unanimously approved the idea that same night.

    The vote made Winona the first Minnesota city to join Welcoming America, a national network of local governments and nonprofits.

    “I was so proud of that,” recalled Said, who arrived with her family in Rochester in December 1993 as Bosnian refugees. Volunteers met them with open arms, she says. “This multicultural society in America is a beauty.”

    In the two years since, however, the movement that Winona embraced has met with increasingly hostile resistance in cities and towns across Minnesota and the Upper Midwest, exposing deep rifts and anxiety over immigration, refugees, race, culture and religion — particularly Islam.

    Here they admit that the “welcoming” initiative is about finding cheap low-skilled labor!

    Blowing the whistle on the scheme that involves the UN is Ron Branstner speaking with KNSI Radio St. Cloud in 2015

    Those who support the welcoming initiatives and similar efforts see them as important value statements critical to attracting residents, especially in rural communities that are struggling to recruit and hold workers for hard-to-fill, low-skilled jobs.

    “I can’t understand how many people have problems with Welcoming America. We work together because there is no other way,” said Said, executive director of Project Fine, a nonprofit that works to integrate newcomers through education.

    But even in cities such as St. Cloud and Willmar, which passed resolutions, tensions ran high. Opponents in both cities focused their objections on Somali immigrants, with allegations being raised that they spread disease, commit crimes, take advantage of public assistance, provide recruits for Islamic terrorism and generally resist assimilation.

    Ron Branstner a resident of Eden Valley who often testifies against Welcoming initiatives, told the Willmar City Council that the resolution is more than just a “feel-good idea.”
    “If you pass this, there are things that come behind this,” Branstner said. “Free speech is at risk.”

    Notice how reporter Dan Browning (or his editors!) gives Branstner few column inches to explain his (and his audiences’) concerns.

    Browning continues with his warm embrace of Welcoming America….

    The Welcoming America network grew out of an initiative that started in 2006 in Nashville as the population boomed, mostly from the influx of immigrants and refugees.

    Seven years later, the network launched its nationwide Welcoming Cities program, backed by a three-year, $2.66 million grant from the Clinton Foundation. It included faith groups, nonprofits and local governments interested in training and sharing ideas about how best to help the newcomers.
    Said got involved with Welcoming America about 2010, which led to President Barack Obama designating her an “Outstanding Champion of Change.”

    There is so much more, but I can’t snip it all! Go here to read more about the insidious work of Welcoming Americaand how just regular folks, like Ron Branstner, are working hard to educate their fellow citizens about the plans to change America by changing the people!

    What you can do!

    Contact the White House and tell the President that you don’t want Welcoming America to get one more dime of your money! Contact link is in upper right hand column of this blog.

    David Lubell was previously with the George Soros funded group, the TIRRC (Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition) of Tennessee. He opposes any legislation to deal with illegal immigration. He and his associations push for more refugee resettlement and amnesty measures.

    This country will never truly heal until that god awful POS Soros is either held to account or dies off. Should have handed him over to Russia along with his drug addict spawn.
