  • Christian Charities Profit from $1 Billion Fed Program to Resettle Refugees, 40 Percent Muslim

    01/31/2017 6:15:33 AM PST · by davikkm · 40 replies
    Though they are officially “non-profit” organizations, Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services, and several other Christian organizations are profiting from lucrative contracts with the federal government to resettle refugees in the United States. Of the 100,000 refugees resettled in the United States in 2014 under the Refugee Resettlement program, an estimated 40 percent were Muslims. In FY 2015, the State Department, through the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration and the Office of Refugee Resettlement, spent more than $1 billion on these programs, which settled international refugees “vetted” by the United Nations High Commission on International Refugees in all 50 states...

    Abdul Razak Ali Artan, the Somali refugee who attacked eleven people on the campus of Ohio State University on Monday, was initially resettled in Texas by Catholic Charities of Dallas in June 2014, according to The Dallas Morning News. snip Artan and his family “arrived at DFW Airport by way of JFK International Airport, and stayed in temporary housing in Dallas for 23 days,” according to NBC5. A spokesperson for the State Department tells Breitbart News that 98 Somali refugees arrived in Texas in June of 2014, according to the U.S. Department of State’s Worldwide Refugee Admissions Processing System database....

    As we reported last week, a presentation on refugees was scheduled last night at the St. Ann Catholic Church in Arlington, Virginia. The event took place as planned. It was entitled “Refugee Resettlement in the U.S.: A National and Local Humanitarian Response”, and was jointly presented by officials of the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement and Catholic Charities. Last night’s event was more important than it might seem at first glance. After all, it was just a little PowerPoint slide show given to a few dozen people by a government official about the wonderful cultural enrichment that will be brought...

    If you are angry (about the tension in St. Cloud) and want one entity to blame, it is Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota, the primary federal refugee resettlement agency working in St. Cloud! That supposedly 'Christian' charitable organization is directly responsible for the high Somali numbers in St. Cloud, and they are jointly responsible for bringing over ten thousand Somalis from around the world to colonize Minnesota towns in the last ten years alone--Catholic Charities and World Relief MN (now Arrive Ministries)*** helped also. Of course they have brought many more than 10,000 in over two decades and not just...

    If you live in one of the following 11 states you should be paying close attention to how the program is run in your state and begin questioning whether the federal government has the constitutional authority to pass off a federal program to a non-profit group which effectively eliminates, or nearly eliminates, any state control of how state tax dollars are spent. Do you live in one of these Wilson-Fish states? Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee or Vermont. ***Update*** There are 12 W-F states at this time (Oct. 2015): Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Idaho,...

    The American people don’t trust Obama to fight international terrorism. irst, a little inside baseball — at my own site The Hayride, which is a political blog mostly covering events in Louisiana, this is the busiest week in our six-year history and Tuesday was far and away the busiest day. And what drove that traffic was a story, originally reported by WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge that we picked up on, about a Syrian refugee dropped into Baton Rouge and settled there by Catholic Charities who decided to take his destiny, and his whereabouts, in his own hands. The migrant in...

    Churches fall, mosques rise. Across Europe, thousands of churches have closed and many of them have become mosques. The St. Mark’s Cathedral in London survived Nazi bombers in WW2, but fell to a new invasion and became the New Peckham Mosque. In France, where there are now more Muslims than practicing Catholics, the Islamic colonists demanded that thousands of empty churches be turned into mosques. The Capernaum Church in Germany has become the Al-Nour Islamic Center. In Amsterdam, the St. Ignatius Church was transformed into the Fatih Camii Mosque. Its name means ‘The Conqueror’s Mosque’. The original Fatih Camii Mosque...

    The media tent that once stood in the parking lot of Sacred Heart Church is gone, as are the television crews and reporters who descended this summer when the flow of Central American immigrants illegally crossing the Texas border was major news. But after a brief lull, the surge of undocumented families passing through a temporary shelter set up by Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley seems to be rising again. The spotlight may have turned away, but if the sense of crisis is gone, the people have not stopped coming. “The numbers increased a lot this past month,...

    A legal training was scheduled at the Catholic Charities headquarters on November 3,2014. It was to help provide legal counsel ("pro-bono") on behalf of UAC's primarily arriving from Central American failed states. The CLE (continuing legal education) course was offered in exchange for representing at least one UAC client. The training is to enlighten the loopholes evolved from the UN Trafficking Agreement (TVPRA) signed by President Bush in 2000. In 2008, under President Obama, a more expansive and generous set of criteria were forwarded to ensure that the minors could gain the coveted "Best Interest Ruling" (not to be deported)...

    Restrictionists in the immigration debate have long bemoaned the mid-movie understanding of third world-invasion lawlessness and the sudden concern among elected officials and others in highlighting the sex-slave trade. The reason is that these same people have IGNORED the consequences of NAFTA free-trading, open borders, and free-wheeling hiring practices that in turn gave us the glam hysteria of the CHILD SEX-SLAVING INDUSTRY with no real efforts to prosecute it!. As the title to this blogpost indicates, LAWLESSNESS BREEDS LAWLESSNESS.

    HOUSTON, Texas--The federal government is in dire need of U.S. citizens willing to house the thousands of illegal immigrants who enter the country each week, and they are willing to pay them to do so. The Texas-based nonprofit Catholic Charities is currently seeking out foster families for the migrants, most of whom come from Central America. Ruth Braiser, a spokeswoman for the organization, told Breitbart Texas that foster families can receive monthly payments for housing adult immigrants who are under 23-years-old. "Most of our children are 15 to 17-years-old," she said. "But some stay in our program until they are...

    On the day that Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone was installed as the head of the San Francisco archdiocese, the former director of the archdiocesan office of Catholic Charities published an op-ed column warning that the incoming prelate should not stress Catholic teachings regarding the sanctity of marriage. “No one expects him to be silent on church teaching, but he has a choice to make,” wrote Brian Cahill in the San Francisco Chronicle. He continued: He can continue to be the aggressive, outspoken leader of the American Catholic bishops in their effort to prevent civil gay marriage, or he can be the...
