    Republican Senator Lankford Opposes President's Low Refugee Ceiling for FY2020

    Republican Senator Lankford Opposes President’s Low Refugee Ceiling for FY2020

    10/03/2019 ~ Ann Corcoran

    But he is not alone. Continue reading to see which other Republican Senators have joined with some of the most vocal Open Borders Dems in opposing (slamming!) the President on the refugee ceiling for the new fiscal year which began on Tuesday.


    From The Oklahoman:
    Lankford slams Trump plan to reduce refugee admissions

    Sen. James Lankford on Friday came out against the Trump administration’s plan to reduce the number of refugees allowed into the United States.


    “I’m disappointed to see that the administration has once again decided to decrease the number of refugees we allow into our country,” Lankford, R-Oklahoma City, said.





    Lankford leader of the pack in 2018 as ‘faith’ leaders gather on the Hill to oppose the President and support ‘Dreamers’ and to push for more refugees for your towns and cities. https://stream.org/immigration-debat...faith-leaders/


    “Over the last few months, the Department of Homeland Security implemented multiple policies that have resulted in a decrease in migrants at the U.S. southern border.


    “While I appreciate the administration’s focus on curbing illegal immigration and caring for asylum seekers, that doesn’t mean we should continue to reduce the admittance of refugees who are fleeing from persecution in their home countries to support these policies.”
    [….]


    Lankford and Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., sent a letter last month wrote a letter signed by other senators to three of Trump’s cabinet secretaries urging the refugee cap to be raised from this year’s level. [That would mean they were pushing for more than 30,000!—ed]


    The letter, signed by several other senators from both parties, states, “At a time when we are facing the ‘highest levels of displacement on record,’ according to the United Nations Refugee Agency, we urge you to increase the refugee resettlement cap and to admit as many refugees as possible within that cap. America has a responsibility to promote compassion and democracy around the world through assistance to vulnerable and displaced people.”
    More here.


    The letter is here, but as I mentioned previously no specific number of refugees is proposed leaving them free to blast the President for whatever number he recommended. (The Open Borders agitators were pushing for 95,000 knowing full well that would never happen.)


    Here are the signers of the letter in addition to Lankford and his sidekick, Senator Chris Coons (D) of Delaware.
    I think it’s kind of handy to have this list of the hardcore promoters of more refugees in the US Senate. (Rs are on the Left and Dems on the right.)


    Is your Republican Senator on this list?

    We have our own "displaced" people living in the streets, millions homeless, lost homes due to floods, tornados, fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, mudslides.

    Vote these swamp rats out of office!

    We have our own people to take care of and we are not the ATM machine or dumping ground for the world.

    Send them to Safe Zone in their country. Let them build their own villages and governments!

    These people need to be on birth control and stop breeding in the dirt, living in poverty, and fighting each other in never ending wars!

    We are 22 TRILLION in debt. It is expensive to live here. There is NO housing, over crowded schools, roads, healthcare system. We do not want to pay their bills out of OUR wallets! Not one dime and shut this damn program down!

    Refugee Industry Agitators Launch Social Media Campaign; 95,000 Refugees Each Year by Law!

    10/07/2019 ~ Ann Corcoran


    Today, while reading one more story about how the President is killing the US Refugee Admissions Program, it reminded me that I wanted to go back and have a look at the Refugee Council USA report where they list the many refugee offices that have closed in the last two years.


    Longtime readers may remember that in the heyday of the Obama Administration the US State Department was working feverishly (and secretively) with its nine major contractors to find new locations to place refugees. We wrote about it many times.


    In fact, in June of 2018, Judicial Watch sued in an attempt to get the list of proposed Obama sites and the criteria used to choose them, see here. I don’t know where the case stands, but will find out.





    However, when I went to the Refugee Council USA site for their report on Trump-era office closures this morning, the report was blacked out. WTH! Readers were directed to a new initiative.


    This is a good opportunity to hammer the point again—they never give up!


    The Open Borders pushers are always on the offense coming up with some new effort to show their supporters they are working hard to move the needle in their direction in support of mass migration.


    Frankly, other than Trump, people who want to see restraint used in how much immigration America can sustain are almost always playing defense!


    Anyway, here is their latest initiative which began yesterday. For some strange reason they want their supporters to black out their social media accounts. But, more importantly they are looking for support for the so-called GRACE ACT which seeks to set a minimum refugee number each year of 95,000!








    Go here to see the GRACE ACT which would. among other things, set the minimum number of refugees to be admitted to the US each year at 95,000.


    You are probably saying, that it won’t go anywhere and you would be right.


    However, with each of these campaigns where they are on the offense and the media laps it up, they move the needle in their direction.


    So why can’t we do that and demand a moratorium—zero admissions—until our whole US immigration system is revamped?


    We could (and it would help Trump!), but it would look extreme and heaven-forbid the immigration control groups running the show in Washington don’t want to look extreme, not ever!
    How about a new group! Something like Migration Moratorium NOW!
