Will surge of refugees to Michigan in coming months help Donald Trump win that all-important state?

Reports are coming out of Michigan that suggest the state, already a leading state attracting Muslim migrants, will be getting a surge of Syrians as the end of fiscal year 2016 approaches (that would be September 30th).

Refugee numbers always surge in the late summer and up until the 30th because the feds and their contractors are desperate to get their numbers up to the magic number, this year it is 85,000, that the President asked for last fall.  (Congress just winked at that number. What will they do when Obama comes in with a ‘determination’ of 100,000 for FY 2017?).

We also know that Michigan, a leading state for Syrian Muslim refugee resettlement, is a state that Donald Trump has on his target list to win.

donald-hilary-bernie
Both Hillary or Bernie would put refugee resettlement to America on steroids if elected in November. Michigan will be on its way to becoming the first Muslim state in America. As Michigan goes, so goes the nation.

There are 4 or so states that have gone to the Democrats in recent Presidential contests (Wisconsin and Michigan of course have gone for the D for decades), but are now considered to be ‘in play’ for The Donald.

Interestingly, three of the four are top refugee resettlement states (in the top ten!)—Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania (Wisconsin is no slouch either).  I suspect that is no coincidence since the Dems have made it clear they are turning red states blue by changing the people!

So, here is a story at the Detroit Free Press that says a SURGE of Syrians (99% of Syrians entering the US as refugees are Muslims) is expected to arrive in the state in the next few months.

Could anger against Obama and the Democrats over burdening the state with low-skilled immigrants who will be drains on the welfare system, AND pose a security risk to their neighbors, be parlayed into enough votes for Donald Trump?

Frankly folks, the hard reality is that the flow of migrants in to America from all corners of the world will definitely be increased in a Hillary (or Bernie) administration because they will see a repudiation of Trump as an indicator that you don’t care about immigration.

Here is the Detroit Free Press yesterday:

WASHINGTON — With less than five months to go, the Obama administration remains far behind its target of resettling 10,000 Syrian refugees by Sept. 30, but officials are expecting to draw closer to that goal in the coming months with a spike in resettlements in Michigan and across the U.S.

[….]

If a surge is coming, Michigan is likely to be involved: Since the fiscal year began last October, 211 Syrians have been resettled in the state, more than anywhere else in the country — for a total of 386 resettlements between Jan. 1, 2015, and April 30 of this year. And that’s no surprise, considering southeastern Michigan has the largest Arab-American community in the U.S. with cultural and societal ties to the Middle East and deep experience with refugee resettlements.

But the numbers of those coming could dwarf what has been seen to date. According to the State Department, a total of 1,736 Syrians have been resettled in the U.S. since October, meaning it would take on average more than 1,650 resettlements a month through Sept. 30 to hit the 10,000 mark.

If Michigan — which has resettled about 12% of the Syrians accepted into the U.S. since the refugee crisis began last year — continues its trend, the state could welcome hundreds more in the near future, even as questions about immigration lurk as part of a fractious general election debate.

So again, I think that Michigan is pivotal in Election 2016.  

Can a resettlement surge of mostly Muslim refugees to the state concern enough voters to reject a Democrat in the 2016 Presidential election?

On the campaign trail, folks in Michigan should ‘dog’ all candidates with questions about the future of Michigan.  Will it be a state to be further colonized by Middle Easterners, or not?

Visit RRW for a lengthy archive on the state by clicking here.  Believe it or not, a few years ago the US State Department tried to curtail resettlement to Michigan because the refugees would have few employment opportunities.  I don’t know why they then subsequently opened the spigot!

Beware the Delphi Technique! This time in Billings, Montana

Buried near the end of this news account from Billings, MT about churches preparing welcoming kits for refugees is a bit of information you need to know more about—no matter what political issue concerns you!

First wade through a discussion about World Relief Spokane’s Mark Kadel as he brags about how he is proactive with the media to get out a “welcoming” message about refugees to head off the unwelcoming locals.

He says his work in Spokane with the media has helped keep a lid on the controversy that now embroils nearby Missoula, MT.  (See also this morning’s post on Rutland, VT where it looks like the media lid is off!).

St. Andrew Presbyterian Church
St. Andrew Presbyterian Church will host a “constructive conversation” about Syrian refugee resettlement on May 21st.

This is what I want to get to…..

Near the end of the longish piece we learn that a Billings Presbyterian Church is going to hold a community meeting about Syrian refugees on May 21.

St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in Billings invites area residents to engage in constructive conversations about Syrian refugees on Saturday, May 21, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the church, 180 24th St. W.

With a target of 10,000 Syrian refugees to be resettled in the United States by Sept. 30, Montanans are discussing whether Syrian refugees would be welcome in this state or if security issues are more important than the welfare of Syrians.

montana

Participants will join in small groups, with some members in favor of settling Syrian refugees in Montana and others who are concerned about the safety and security of citizens if Syrian refugees are permitted. A facilitator will encourage each person to tell his or her story and background, after which participants will explore any areas of common agreement. [Keep in mind that this ‘story and background’ mumbo jumbo is just one more strategy used to play on your emotions and stop logical debate.—ed]

The goal, according to a press release from the church, “is to learn to listen to others and to share our opinions in a civil manner, trying to understand each other without a need to come to any conclusions.”

For more information or to register for the free event, call the church weekday mornings at 656-9256 or write to office@standrewbillings.org.

Please state whether you are for or against the acceptance of Syrian refugees. This project is supported by a peace-making grant provided to St. Andrew Presbyterian Church by the Yellowstone Presbytery.

[LOL! they need to know in advance if you are for or against Syrians coming to Montana. Why?—ed]

Why is this so interesting to me (and should be to you)?

Because this is an example of the Delphi Technique, a system first developed over 50 years ago that is used now to direct the outcome of a public meeting to a pre-determined conclusion.  This (click here) is a good description of it.

The process used to “facilitate” the meeting is called the Delphi Technique. This Delphi Technique was developed by the RAND Corporation for the U.S. Department of Defense back in the 1950s. It was originally intended for use as a psychological weapon during the cold war.

However, it was soon recognized that the steps of Delphi could be very valuable in manipulating ANY meeting toward a predetermined end.

There are many variations, but here is a simple description of what I predict will happen (and what you can consider doing) at the St. Andrew Presbyterian Church:

Instead of the entire audience hearing the various critics of the idea of bringing refugees to Montana, the critics will be subsumed into small groups where the majority likely will be supporters of the proposition (refugees welcome) and have planned ahead for how to argue within your small group.

You, the critic in one group, will not hear what critics in other groups are saying.  The facilitator in each group will have been carefully chosen in advance (he or she will favor resettlement of refugees in Montana). Of course a smart facilitator will be slick, and you, the critic, will feel like your concerns have been heard.

But, since you are in the minority (unless many many critics show up!) when the group comes back together in the body of the whole, you will be made to feel that your opinion was the minority opinion and may not even be mentioned when wrap-up reports are given by each facilitator.

Media reports of the gathering will say that the majority of Billings citizens want to welcome refugees.

It seems to me that if you are planning to attend and are of the opinion that impoverished third world refugees from mostly the Middle East and Africa will not benefit your community you have several choices.

First, don’t participate at all and maybe protest outside.

Or, participate but stand up at the beginning and demand that you don’t break into small groups—then everyone hears everyone’s else’s concerns and ideas.  If they insist on the break-out groups (because their entire strategy is based on Delphi), you walk out (and complain to the press).

Or, if there are enough of you to make sure each small group has a large compliment of critics, and you are all prepared for their strategy, then it might be worth participating.

When you are participating be firm (and stay calm!) and do not allow anyone in your group (the pro-refugee people) to wander into a discussion about moral duty. Make them stick to the facts—cost of the program, employment, housing, security and so forth.

It is important to stay calm and reasoned because one important part of the Delphi Strategy is to show you as crazy people and the facilitators (the pro-refugee resettlement people) as the professional-sounding ‘good’ people.  Anyone attending who has not made up their mind will then naturally tend to relate to those people—the nice-sounding people—instead of you.

Make sure you get to the media when it’s over and don’t allow the sponsoring group to monopolize any reporters present.  If no reporters are present, then call your local media yourself—right away!

There might be other things you can think of to do, I’m not an expert, but I have seen it done to unsuspecting citizens often enough to recognize it!

And, please, please, all of you who plan to attend, click here and read the strategy on how you can defeat the Delphi Technique!

Since 2009 (Obama!) $53 million has been spent to find new voters in immigrant population

We’ve read about this USCIS grant program over recent years where the Obama Administration is passing out grant money like candy to non-profit groups.  And, surprise (not!) some of the recipients of your money are some of the same federal contractors pouring refugees into your towns.

Obama and the Dems want to get as many permanent residents as possible through the citizenship process as fast as possible.

Remember they are changing America by changing the people and they have to make sure large numbers can vote legally (in addition to those who will vote illegally)!

free citizenship classes
Not free to US taxpayers!

It sounds good—getting immigrants prepared to be American citizens, but it also strikes me as one more pile of boodle for refugee contractors already awash in your money.

Here is a recent press release from USCIS announcing the next traunch of your money available to the non-profits.

Grants will support citizenship preparation services for permanent residents

WASHINGTON—U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is now accepting applications for two funding opportunities under the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program. These are competitive grant opportunities for organizations that prepare permanent residents for naturalization and promote civic integration through increased knowledge of English, U.S. history and civics. The two programs will provide up to $10 million in grants for citizenship preparation programs in communities across the country. Applications are due by April 22.

Through these grant opportunities, USCIS seeks to expand availability of high-quality citizenship preparation services throughout the country. The two opportunities are:

[….]

Since 2009, USCIS has awarded approximately $53 million through 262 grants to organizations that have provided citizenship preparation services to more than 138,000 permanent residents in 35 states and the District of Columbia.

Now go here and have a look at the grant recipients for 2015, most received $250,000 each.   I sure hope someone is auditing this program!

The Arab Community Center of Dearborn, MI got $250,000, Church World Service, Durham NC got $249,991, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Philadelphia ($250,000) and the union SEIU, New York got $250,000 to name just a few.

And, so if a “new American” is getting trained by one of these left-of-center organizations, three guesses on which party they will be voting for in the fall!

Trump’s idea of curtailing remittances to Mexico is a great idea (wall or no wall)

I have too much to do today to properly tell you all about how remittances (money sent by immigrants out of the US economy) are used to prop up economies around the world.

trump-border-wall (1)
Trump’s wall is doable! http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2016/02/18/cnn-runs-segment-on-trump-wall-being-very-doable-we-explain-how-mexico-pays/

And, no time to tell you about how terrorism is funded with some of that money, or that many of those dollars are taxpayer dollars you contributed to legal and illegal migrants through your welfare ‘charity.’

Or, how many of those dollars were stolen from the Food Stamp program.

Remittances are the reason the ‘temporary protective status’ never goes away for certain categories of immigrant in the US.

And, the dream of remittances sent back to Central America is why those countries don’t curtail the flight of tens of thousands of their youths to the American border. (spike coming!)  ‘Leaders’ there assume the kids will send money ‘home.’

Ana Sol-Gutierrez
Maryland Rep. admitted in 2013 debate on ‘Gang of Eight’ bill: “money is a principal driver of the foreign governments’ interest in immigration reform.” http://thehill.com/policy/international/281605-foreign-governments-lobby-hard-in-favor-of-immigration-reform

I’ve written a good bit over the years about the remittance game and how it is a major driver of immigration to America.  See posts here at RRW.

This is what the Washington Post said yesterday about the Trump plan (it even brought Obama to the podium to chastise Trump).

Suffice it to say, I am happy the issue has been so publicly mentioned because I don’t think most Americans understand how many billions of dollars leave the US every year through remittances and how that is a major reason migrants come here (to send money ‘home,’ not because they want necessarily to be American citizens!).

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump would try to force Mexico to pay for a border wall by targeting billions of dollars in remittances sent by immigrants living in the U.S., according to a memo released by his campaign Tuesday.

The memo outlines in new detail how Trump would try to compel Mexico to pay for the 1,000-mile wall he’s promised to build along the Southern border if he becomes president.

In his proposal, Trump threatened to change a rule under the USA Patriot Act, an anti-terrorism law, to cut off a portion of the funds sent to Mexico through money transfers known as remittances. His plan would also bar non-Americans from wiring money outside of the U.S. unless they can provide documentation establishing their legal status in the country.

Trump said he would withdraw the threat if Mexico makes a one-time payment to finance the wall.

“It’s an easy decision for Mexico: make a one-time payment of $5-10 billion to ensure that $24 billion continues to flow into their country year after year,” the memo reads.

By the way, the Dems are quick to tell us that food stamp dollars and other welfare payments to indigent immigrants fuels the US economy as those dollars return via goods and services purchased.

Isn’t it time we find out exactly how our tax dollars prop up third world nations through uncontrolled movement of those dollars out of the country?

The Republicans who are running the House and Senate should be investigating the loss to the US economy of the billions leaving the country via remittances, wall or no wall (Trump or no Trump!). So, where have they been?

Stories, stories, stories, the Left’s tried and true method to jerk your chain

Well, maybe not your chain dear readers, because you get it, but for those not steeped in policy discussions on a daily basis.  Casual voters and skimmers of the news are particularly vulnerable.

Get out your tissues!  Rather than arguing the logic (illogic from our point of view) of federal initiatives—like the mass migration push of the Progressive Left, they always manage to get sympathetic stories about immigrants and refugees planted throughout the media in an effort to reach your emotions with the hope that you will forget your brains!

This is a ‘story’ from last week at the Daily Beast and it’s all about how a Muslim woman is now a US citizen thanks to Reagan’s 1986 (disastrous for us) amnesty. The title of the ‘story’ is: ‘A Muslim woman brought here by Reagan. Pushed away by Trump.’

Nancy and Farhana
The Daily Beast’s photo to illustrate their sob story… http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/03/20/a-muslim-woman-brought-here-by-reagan-pushed-away-by-trump.html

The ‘story’s’ hook is Nancy Reagan’s passing.  And, by the way, Farhana (the sympathetic star of the ‘story’) was not “brought here by Reagan.” Her father got in here illegally from Bangladesh and was granted amnesty (along with millions of other illegals) by Reagan.

Now Farhana, who always voted Republican (we are told) is being driven away from the political party she loves by Trump’s language.  I don’t need to go on, you get it, as if the Daily Beast cares one wit about one less Republican voter.

My point here is that we need to play the ‘story’ game every chance we get!

Those of us using our logic and reason when looking at public policy issues need to play their game more often—the let’s tell a ‘story’ game.

Esar Met closeup
Esar Met, a Burmese Muslim refugee, gets life in prison for murder of 7-year-old Christian girl. http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/nation/2014/05/14/utah-girl-killed-man-sentence/9094371/

For example, I never miss an opportunity to remind readers of that brutal rape and murder by a Muslim refugee of a little Christian girl in Salt Lake City a few years ago.  I reported it again here yesterday.

(And, by the way, the national media never picked up this ‘story’ even as the sensational trial went on for many weeks. Why? Because it didn’t fit the mainstream media’s narrative!)

Then there is the Iraqi refugee rapist who was living in Colorado Springs before he was sent to prison for the next 28 years, and the Kentucky refugee jihadists now doing time in federal prison.  Grrrr! You paid for their resettlement to America and now you will pay for their decades behind bars.

You get my drift. If the Open Borders Progressive Left is going to inundate the media with sympathetic migrant stories, you should be doing the same with the unsympathetic ones.

Don’t make anything up or exaggerate—just remember to use emotion as a strategic (powerful) political weapon when you write.

If they can use Farhana’s story, you can balance it with Met’s story!

Have some fun at USA Spending.gov! $296 million went to Lutherans since Obama took office!

The other day I suggested that each and every one of you can be an investigative reporter, see that post by clicking here.

So here we are, a winter weekend, can’t do much outdoors, and maybe you aren’t into the Super Bowl, so how about having fun searching for how much of your hard earned tax dollars are going to charities—especially to ‘religious’ charities pretending to be doing the Lord’s work while spending your money!

USA Spending graphicI haven’t written about USA Spending.gov for awhile, so last night when a reader asked about a local Catholic Charities, I tried that government website again.  It is much improved because it now contains the sub-grants in addition to the amounts that are direct grants.  I think there was a grace period for grantees to get their information on sub-grants to USA Spending.gov, but they are there now.  (Here is a bit of information about how grantees need to be ready to provide sub-grant information.)

So back to the USA Spending.gov website I looked up the specific Catholic Charities my reader was interested in and was blown away when I saw the millions of dollars just one little local Catholic Charities was getting.

I then decided to just pick one of the nine federal refugee resettlement contractors (which have in the vicinity of 350 sub-grantees or sub-contractors), to see what the biggies were getting.  Here (below) is Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service which resettles refugees in your towns and cities and also agitates for amnesty for illegal aliens.

LIRS is lobbying (with your money!) as we speak for 100,000 Syrians to be admitted to the US before Obama leaves office.

Prepare to be shocked!  Since August 2008, this one ‘religious’ non-profit received $296 MILLION dollars from you in 143 transactions with federal agencies. (And, I will bet you LIRS is not the wealthiest!)

Click here and see for yourself!  (Sorry the screenshot isn’t very clear!)

 

Screenshot (22)

 

I urge you all to try the website.  Unfortunately for PRO-Open Borders Catholic agencies, there are too many of them and they aren’t all in one place. So try your local Catholic Diocese first.  Then think of all the other non-profits that have their hands in your wallet and see how much and from where their grants are flowing.

They will all say they help the poor with your money, but I repeat, they are also lobbying for more (poor) migrants to be admitted to the US!  Our founding fathers must be rolling in their graves to see the federal treasury used in this way.

Then you must get the information you learn out to others beyond your circle. Maybe take your facts and write a letter to the editor. Ask to write an Op-ed for your local paper. Go on talk radio. Write a blog!  Send what you learn to your elected officials and ask why on earth they are giving your money to Open Borders Leftwing organizations masquerading as religious charities.

Come to think of it, where is the ACLU on the separation of church and state?

Is your public school child being forced to profess their faith in Islam?

You must find out!  This is a story I just posted at Potomac Tea Party Report about what is happening in Maryland.  However, you can be sure this is happening in most states in America.

Find out! And, then go to war with your local school district and your state legislators. This is a prime example of sharia law creeping into society through your children.

Maryland public school being sued for forcing Islamic teaching on Christian students

You’ve probably seen the news, but since Obama will be promoting the Islamic faith today in his visit to a Maryland mosque, I thought you should know that sharia law is creeping into American society through our children and the public school system.

Islamic Society of Balt

Obama will be speaking from the Islamic Society of Baltimore today. Learn about the mosque’s questionable connections here:http://www.wnd.com/2016/02/obama-ignoring-evidence-of-baltimore-mosques-ties-to-terror/

LaPlata High School is not the only school advancing Islam.

I was in Tennessee a few months ago and was fortunate to see an excellent presentation by a father who became alarmed when his daughter was forced to profess the Islamic doctrine of faith—the shahada.  He was traveling the state of TN warning parents there.

Students were expected to memorize (in Arabic) the words that are used by Muslims and those converting to Islam.

The shahada states, “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”

If anyone else in Maryland has witnessed what the Wood family has, you should contact the Thomas Moore Law Center and let them know.

Here is what World Net Daily says about the Maryland case:

A Maryland high school punished a student for refusing to profess faith in Islam, gave her failing grades for a series of assignments that violated her Christian beliefs then threatened her father with arrest for complaining, a federal lawsuit charges.

The suit was filed in U.S. District Court against the Charles County Public Schools in La Plata, Maryland, its board of education, Principal Evelyn Arnold and Vice Principal Shannon Morris by the Thomas More Law Center.

A spokeswoman for the district told WND that officials were aware of the issue but said Arnold and Morris would not be commenting.

Plaintiffs are Marine Corps veteran John Kevin Wood and his wife, Melissa, who “refuse[d] to allow their teenage daughter to be subjected to Islamic indoctrination and propaganda in her high school world history class.”

The lawsuit charges that the defendants’ “curriculum, practices, policies, actions, procedures, and customs promote the Islamic faith by requiring students to profess the five pillars if Islam.”

The students, the complaint says, were required to “write out and confess the shahada, the Islamic profession of faith.”

Look how deceptive the school was!  They knew that parents would be furious!

The lawsuit charges that school officials concealed the curriculum by using two separate history textbooks, one of which contained the Islamic teachings and which students were required to leave at school. The other, which did not contain the teachings, was allowed to be taken home, the complaint explains. The school also excised the Islamic teachings from the course syllabus.

There is much more here.

Every one of you with children in the public school system must search for Islamic indoctrination going on in your schools, and speak up!

North Carolina county tries to save itself from future Islamic terrorism

Craven County, NC isn’t the only county taking up the issue (via the resolution process) of whether refugees from terror-producing countries should be blocked from resettlement in their community.  Several county governments in South Carolina have already passed such resolutions.

stabbing-deaths
The face of refugees in New Bern. Burmese refugee stabbed three children to death there last year. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2015/09/16/nc-member-of-the-house-wants-to-curb-obama-power-on-refugees-start-by-cutting-funds/

The federal refugee resettlement contractors and their Leftwing friends in the No Borders movement don’t take these resolutions seriously, but that is no reason not to do this!  They claim they have every right to shove “New Americans” down your throats.

All of you concerned about the destruction of the character, the economy and social make-up of your towns, take note.  You are guerrilla warriors in the political sense.  You are creating controversy and keeping the issue in the news by taking such actions.  The point is to make a point and get media attention!

Media attention brings the issue to new people who didn’t even know this was happening, and many don’t like it once they learn more about how refugee resettlement works and who is behind it (see UN selects our refugees!).

Here is what I learned from WITN News about an upcoming ‘hearing’ on their resolution.

Commissioners have postponed a decision on a resolution that would block Syrian refugees from being relocated to their county.

Craven County Commissioners met Tuesday morning and reviewed a draft resolution that requests the Interfaith Refugee Ministry not to bring in any refugees from countries the State Department considers to be controlled by terrorist organizations. That includes refugees from Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen.

The motion was made on Tuesday to table the issue so that public comments can be introduced. Those comments can be made at the next Commissioner’s meeting on Monday, Feb. 1 at 7:00 p.m.

Go here for more on the County Commission and for location of meetings.

I can’t impress on you enough that if you live near New Bern, the county seat, you must attend and speak up.  Your goal is to get media attention! Get national attention if you can!

The point you must make is that local communities have no say about who is dropped off by the federal government and its resettlement contractors and that must be changed.

Related:  See Trump protester from North Carolina, here.  He is an adviser to a Muslim Brotherhood front group and you can bet he (or his pals) will be in New Bern.

I’m going to say more at Refugee Resettlement Watch about the numbers going to New Bern and where they are from…(I’ll add link here when I’ve posted it.)  Click here !

USCCB launches PR campaign this week: “welcome the stranger” (with your money!)

Breitbart is reporting that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops has launched a campaign this week (January 3-9) to urge all Catholics to press Obama to admit 200,000 refugees in the coming year (100,000 would be mostly Muslim Syrians).

Kevin Appleby AResistance
This is Kevin Appleby, the Bishops’ lobbyist. The Bishops also supported amnesty via the Gang of Eight bill. It would have provided them more paying “clients.”

They make it sound like good Catholics (in parishes across America) are footing the bill by ‘sponsoring‘ refugees.  Nothing could be further from the truth!

I just want to scream when I see these deceivers not tell the public how much federal tax dollars they get for their “migration” work.

Stealing from your wallet is not Christian charity.

Here is the news at Breitbart:

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is celebrating National Migration Week from January 3-9, urging Catholics throughout the country to support policies that “welcome the stranger among us.”

[….]

The bishops are urging “providing 100,000 annual resettlement slots for the most vulnerable refugees fleeing the Syria conflict,” and “designating an additional 100,000 refugees to be resettled in the U.S. from other countries.”

“Write…a letter to President Obama, urging him expand U.S. resettlement efforts of Syrian refugees who are fleeing unspeakable atrocities and violence,” the bishops urge as they also ask for donations to the Migrant Refugee Services’ (MRS) “Parishes Organized to Welcome Refugees” program which works to provide sponsorships of “newly-arriving Syrian and other refugees.”

Any money you put in the collection plate is a drop in the bucket compared to how much Washington is giving them for their ‘charitable’ work.  And, you know that many Republicans are complicit in providing the massive funding going to the Bishops and other so-called ‘religious’ charities!

Now have a look at the USCCB Migration Fund annual report!

MRS Audited Financial Statement
(As of December 31, 2014)
REVENUE
Federal Grants/Agreements……………………………………………$79,590,512
CRS Collection………………………………………………………………..1,778,214
Travel Loan Collection Fees……………………………………………….3,401,622
Meeting Fees/Dues…………………………………………………………….147,526
Private Grants /Donations……………………………………………………582,655
Other………………………………………………………………………………..6,421

Total Revenue…………………………………………………………………….$85,506,950

That means that 97% of the Bishops funding for “migration” comes from the US taxpayer.  (Those travel loan collection fees are your money too! When they wring the travel loan repayment from the impoverished refugees, they get to keep a cut rather than return it to the US Treasury).
