Soros invests $500m for refugees
Billionaire investor George Soros pledged on Tuesday to invest up to $500 million in programs and companies benefiting migrants and refugees fleeing life-threatening situations.
Announced against the backdrop of an ongoing United Nations (U.N.) summit in New York, Soros explained that he wished to harness the power of the private sector for public good.
"We will invest in startups, established companies, social impact initiatives, and businesses started by migrants and refugees. These investments are intended to be successful. But our primary focus is to create products and services that truly benefit migrants and host communities," the 86-year-old said in an official statement.
"I hope my commitment will inspire other investors to pursue the same mission."
On Monday, the U.N. opened its first summit addressing the current refugee and migrant crisis. The U.N. and Unicef calculate that a record 65 million people were forcibly displaced from their homes in 2015, with more than half from just three countries: Syria, Afghanistan and Somalia, Reuters reported.

The increasing number of asylum seekers from those war-torn nations has sparked political debate in Europe and the U.S. over where the refugees should be resettled. The issue has been clouded by economic migration, with large numbers of people reportedly seeking entrance to developed nations in the hope of better prospects as global growth slows.
The Open Society Foundations (OSF), a non-profit organization owned by Soros, will be in charge of the funds, the statement said. Any profits from the investments would go to the OSF's migrant and refugee-related programs, which include community centers in Greece and initiatives to provide Syrian refugees with legal advice.
"Refugees need access to financial and legal services, education, and employment opportunities; we believe the private sector is uniquely placed to help build the infrastructure needed to support these services," the U.N.'s High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said of the Soros investment.
Just look at the magnitude of what Soros, Obola, Hillary and globalists have done with promoting Islamic regime change wars in the middle east:

Fine, build them their own country that they can destroy again.
Uhhhhhh....a question from the back of the FEMA Re-education camp?
Why can't those refugess be resettled in countries a little closer to their homelands?
I'll see myself to the delousing showers now. Thank you.
Soros will bring them here to destroy us. And we’re allowing it.
I wish this old Nazi would give America a break and just croak.
Half a billion dollars to erase all the national borders in the world.
Satan is quite pleased with this wretched toad of a man.
Make it a 2 for 1 . . . as long as the refugees go to China I’m fine with him spending all his money on it!
Too bad there isn’t a real life Mitch Rapp someone that could take care of Soros and his kid who will replace him.
By resettling them elsewhere, all you are doing is exporting the same problems, spreading them around to peaceful regions.
It's time for the "Religion of Peace" to step up and take responsibility for "pacifying" the terrorists in their midst.
Socialists Obola, Soros and TPTB Deliberately create and export ISIS Muslim hornet swarms throughout Europe and North America to destabilize western civilization culture in order to bring about a very restrictive poorer New World Order.
The UN, Central bank policy makers are very clear about their plans, as follows:

Monetary Integration Through the Backdoor: Does NAFTA Promote Monetary Policy Harmonization in North America?

It is generally argued that the set of underlying forces behind North Americas economic integration will evolve over time. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) clearly sped up two key interactions: trade and investment (Reyes-Heroles 2004: 395). One of the effects of such greater involvement of market actors (especially the financial and banking sectors) in each others countries is that NAFTA has led to a broader range of cross-border activities and transactions than before it was adopted (Lucio 1999: 194).

Doesn’t Russia or somebody have a bounty on his head?
Maybe they should up the ante so someone has the motivation to collect on it.
$500 million “invested” in destroying Free Market Western Democracy. Declare Soros a criminal financier of international economic terrorism and have covert ops do what’s necessary.
What’s Dr Evil’s plan this time ?
Poorly concealed effort to flood Western societies with Syrian terrorists.
This guy loves discord and chaos.
That stuff is dangerous!
Go hit up the Clintons. They have tons of money that hasn’t been used to help the needy. They always talk about it, but only ten cents out of every dollar donated to the Clinton Foundation and Money Laundry reaches The Poor. (They have recently upped that amount because of the bad publicity.)
NO muslim migrants!!!! EVER!!!!
muslims GET OUT!!!!
Soros GO AWAY!!!!
Soros and his spawn need a dirt nap. Its the only way.
