    The lethal violation of the nation's most basic public health protocols An outbreak of deadly infectious tuberculosis among refugees President Obama sent to Indiana is a frightening reminder that the administration’s dangerous immigration policies are putting American lives at risk. In a frenzied rush to bring as many non-English-speaking Third World aliens to the country as possible before his presidency ends in a few months, Obama is allowing Syrian war migrants and refugees to be brought into the country without first undergoing proper medical examinations, a violation of the nation’s most basic public health protocols.

    The State Department admitted 80 Syrian refugees on Tuesday and 225 on Monday, setting a new single-day record, as President Obama surges to try to meet his target of 10,000 approvals this year — sparking renewed fears among security experts who say corners are being cut to meet a political goal. Officials insisted they’re moving faster because they’re getting better at screening, and say they’re still running all the traps on applicants. But the new spike in numbers is stunning, with more people accepted on Monday alone than were approved in the entire months of January or February.

    The sovereignty of America is quietly being eroded as details have emerged surrounding the Obama administrations proposed budget for 2017 in regards to the resettlement of refugees and illegal aliens in our cities and towns. The requested budget by the President for fiscal year 2017, which begins October 1, 2016, is $2,184,860,000. According to the White House over $2 billion in funds is needed in order to “support a total of 213,000 ‘humanitarian arrivals’in FY 2017, including 100,000 refugees, consistent with the administrations commitment to admit at least this number of refugees in 2017.”

    A 45-year-old U.S. man who has been living in Costa Rica since 2009 has filed for asylum in the country because he says he fears for his life should he be sent back to the United States. Bill Perry’s case, which is currently under appeal through the Immigration Administration Court, began when he was detained at his apartment in downtown San José on April 6 and put into an immigration detention center in Hatillo, where he remains. According to the initial, April 29 resolution from Immigration denying a refugee visa for Perry, the man’s request was based on his assertion...

    ‘Size and scope’ means how many should we admit and where should they come from. Federal Register Notice: The United States actively supports efforts to provide protection, assistance, and durable solutions for refugees. The U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) is a critical component of the United States’ overall refugee protection efforts around the globe. In Fiscal Year 2016, the President established the ceiling for refugee admissions into the United States at 85,000 refugees.

    The Obama administration’s “surge” of Syrian refugee admissions approved for resettlement in the United States jumped by 37 percent in April – to 451 from 330 the previous month. Of those 451, 426 were Sunni Muslims and one was a Christian, according to State Department Refugee Processing Center data. The remaining 24 comprised nine Shi’a Muslims, five other Muslims and 10 Yazidis. The first ten days of May have brought a further 99 admissions, all Sunnis. President Obama last fall pledged to admit 10,000 Syrian refugees in fiscal year 2016. After a slow start – four months into FY2016, only...

    An Obama administration plan to resettle a greater number of foreign refugees in the United States by expediting the screening process is drawing concern from Capitol Hill, where lawmakers are warning that the administration is not capable of properly screening these individuals for ties to terrorism. The Obama administration has committed to bring at least 10,000 Syrian refugees onto American soil in fiscal year 2016 by accelerating security screening procedures from 18-24 months to around three months, according to sources who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon. Obama administration officials told the Free Beacon that they remain committed to the...

    Steve Miller spoke this morning at the Donald Trump town hall in Racine, Wisconsin. Miller destroyed Ted Cruz on the senator’s immigration and trade record. Miller pointed out that Ted Cruz supported the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal that will cost the US millions of jobs. Cruz also pushed to expand Muslim immigration into America. This is despite the fact that Obama has issued 68o,000 green cards to immigrants from Muslim countries in the last five years. The Cruz amendment would have doubled the number of Muslim immigrants to America to up to 1.35 million. Steve Miller added, “Why is it that...

    Guest View (op ed) Readers impressed by Mary Poole’s February 26th guest opinion, “Facts show Missoula can safely welcome refugees,” might want to learn about contemporary realities in refugee resettlement that Poole, co-founder of Soft Landing Missoula, didn’t mention. First, refugee resettlement in the U.S. is hardly the work of private, sacrificial charity that one might expect from the names — such as Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, and Episcopal Migration Ministries — of prominent national “voluntary agencies,” or “volags,” involved. For example, International Rescue Committee [IRC], the volag that Poole says would plant refugees in...

There are already signs that her new swashbuckling style has its costs. EU diplomats have been left bruised and angered by being cut out of her bilateral dealmaking and risk turning on her when the deal goes before another summit next week for final approval.

    Indiana unconstitutionally discriminated against Syrian refugees by freezing federal funds that were supposed to help fleeing families resettle in the state, a federal judge has ruled. The decision is the latest legal setback for state efforts to resist plans by the Obama administration to bring in thousands of Syrian refugees fleeing the civil war in that country. According to a lawyer involved, it marks the first time a court has ruled that a state opposing the resettlement process violated the U.S. Constitution. In other cases, like one Texas, states have sued to block Syrians from moving into their borders. Law...

    BERLIN: Hundreds of refugees fought each other on Sunday in a mass brawl at a Berlin shelter and more than 100 police were called in to restore order, in an episode underlining the challenges Germany faces in handling hundreds of thousands of migrants. Although violent incidents in such centres are frequent, the chaos in the shelter at Berlin's disused Tempelhof airport, which erupted as lunch was being served, was worse than normal. "There were apparently many hundreds of people involved," a spokesman for the police told Reuters TV. Police made an unspecified number of arrests. Michael Elias, who is in...

    Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley invoked the name of Jesus as he decried the plan by the administration to deport hundreds of illegal alien families. The Hill: __________________________ Democratic presidential hopeful Martin O'Malley says plans to deport hundreds of illegal immigrants in a series of raids are not befitting of the Christmas season. "A Christmas Refugee Roundup sounds like something [Donald Trump] would concoct," O'Malley tweeted Thursday. "Remember: Jesus was a refugee child who fled death gangs." O'Malley's comments come hours after reports emerged that the Department of Homeland Security is planning a push to deport hundreds of immigrants from...

    The city of Zurich plans to house asylum seekers in 62 chipboard huts to replace Ikea refugee shelters that it rejected last week after they failed a fire test. The chipboard structures will be assembled by employees of a local company between now and New Year's Day to house up to 250 people, the city announced on Tuesday. Last Friday, Zurich city councillor Raphael Golta unveiled a large hall filled with dozens of Ikea ready-to-assemble Ikea shelters. But just a few hours later authorities were forced to announce that the partly plastic shelters did not live up to Swiss fire...

    The Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Office of Screening Coordination in the Department of Homeland Security had one job Thursday: answer questions about the review of Syrian refugees. She couldn’t do it. “I would like to see if you could give us some numbers, so that the committee and the American people have this information,” Ohio U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, co-chairman of a joint subcommittee hearing on “Terrorism and the Visa Waiver Program,” told senior DHS employee Kelli Ann Burriesci yesterday. In a 5 minute exchange posted to YouTube, he questioned: “How many Syrian refugees have entered the United States...

    The Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America Englewood, New Jersey As Orthodox Christians, we take to heart the commandments of our Lord and God and Savior Jesus Christ, especially the commandment that He has told us is the greatest, that is “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39). We have watched with dismay as several public figures have played on the fear which they assume has swept over this country. Specifically, a recent news release from the Trump campaign has called for “a total and complete shutdown of all Muslims entering the United States”. We reject in...

    Washington - In the face of widespread criticism from across the political spectrum, Republican presidential frontrunner stuck to his guns over his controversial call to bar Muslims from entering the US. With his supporters largely backing him, the real estate mogul and reality TV celebrity projected the call as a temporary move in response to terrorism. He even invoked President Franklin D. Roosevelt's authorisation of the detention of Japanese, German and Italian immigrants during World War II as a precedent. "This is a president highly respected by all; he did the same thing," Trump told MSNBC Tuesday. The nation was...
