House of Representatives Increases Refugee Rescue Budget

You know the drill: as soon as Allah’s armies displace thousands from their homes in some Islamistan, the Washington appropriators swing in to action to borrow billions to assist tribes that hate America. The lawmakers are so well trained that they don’t even need urging from the members of the Refugee Industrial Complex.

Furthermore, the Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee thought Obama’s request for $2 billion in refugee assistance wasn’t generous enough and upped the amount to $3 billion.

Aren’t we happy to have fiscally conservative Republicans running the House?

If the government rescued Christians and Jews from the Middle East slaughter-fest, it would be a different matter, but such common sense is regarded as evil discrimination in PC Washington.

Congress ups budget for refugees, Politico, June 16, 2014

With an eye toward Iraq, Congress is moving far beyond the White House in providing refugee assistance as part of new spending bills this week covering the State Department and foreign aid budget.

Late Monday, Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee outlined their $48.3 billion package, including over $3 billion for refugee accounts. And Senate Democrats are expected to provide in the same range when they mark up their version of the annual appropriations bill on Tuesday.

In his own 2015 budget in March, President Barack Obama requested just $2 billion for refugee assistance — a one-third cut from what had been enacted in January for 2014. But the Appropriations leadership is clearly uncomfortable with this approach and wants more available, given Syria’s bloody civil war and the spreading turmoil in Iraq.

Indeed, the U.S. has already begun to draw on refugee accounts to deal with the Iraqi crisis, and recent estimates by the United Nations indicate hundreds of thousands have fled in their homes as cities like Mosul have fallen to Sunni Islamist militants.

This adds to a refugee caseload already strained by Syria’s civil war, fighting in southern Sudan and the Central African Republic.

“As needs are constantly shifting, it would be premature to predict how much more we will contribute to each emergency,” said a spokesperson for the State Department. “Last fiscal year [2013], we obligated $2.36 billion. Given the increased needs we are seeing this year, we expect to obligate more than last fiscal year.” Continue reading this article

Britain: Trojan Horse Muslims Undermine Schools

How far has the poison of Islam burrowed into British society? Scary far.

The latest is the scandal that some schools were turned into madrassas under the noses of authorities. This followed other news about unmarked halal meat (slaughtered with Islamic cruelty) being sold nationally and Muslim gangs sexually abusing young English girls.

Of course, British society is threatened by enemy Muslims who got inside the gates via immigration. The situation should be an example that admitting Islamic immigrants is the worst public policy ever, but nobody in Washington is paying attention.

Trojan Horse: UK Fears Islamic Takeover of Schools, By Dale Hurd, CBN News, June 10 2014

LONDON — The British government has announced that schools will be required to teach “British values.”

The news comes after Islamists took over several schools in the United Kingdom. This alleged plot to turn British faith-based schools into Muslim training academies has been dubbed “Operation Trojan Horse.”

“Individuals with a religious motivation have taken public money and basically created madrassas, basically created religiously motivated schools that promote intolerance, and this in some cases is a criminal enterprise,” Islamic expert George Igler said.

The decision comes at a time when Britain was already in an uproar over the explosion of Muslim halal food in the nation’s food supply and after revelations that several predominantly Muslim sex gangs around Britain were using English girls as sex slaves.

Whether it’s food or schools, Islam is advancing in Britain. Islamists want to conquer the United Kingdom. Continue reading this article

Pew Graph Measures Illegal Kiddie Colonists from Central America

Thanks to Pew for putting out a semi-current chart (through May 31) that shows the flood of hispanic children from Central America who are either dumped as inconvenient or are scouts for future family relocation. However, if the researchers were to include the estimates for next year’s increased human tsunami, the tallest bar would have to be several times the height shown here to represent the 142,000 future kids.

Let’s not hear any more lies about the superior family values of hispanics. Any American who put their kid into the hands of criminals to be transported to another country would be jailed for child endangerment. But foreigners get rewarded with a welcome. (See my VDARE.com article, Obama’s Illegal Alien Magnet Kills Another Child.)

Fox News broadcaster Lou Dobbs is suspicious about how thousands of small children are transported 1800 miles from Central America through Mexico, which is normally a tough border enforcer, to the US, calling the mass movement “a strategy being carried out.”

Plus, as the headline below specifies, the numbers described are only the ones apprehended. There are plenty more who got away.

Number of Latino children caught trying to enter U.S. nearly doubles in less than a year, Pew Research, June 10, 2014

A record number of unaccompanied children have been apprehended along the U.S.-Mexico border since October, an influx so large that President Obama has called it an “urgent humanitarian situation.” To help house the overflow of children, emergency shelters have opened at military bases in California, Texas and Oklahoma, in addition to a facility in Arizona. And the U.S. Department of Justice on Friday unveiled a new $2 million legal aid program to help children navigate immigration courts.

Between Oct. 1, 2013, and May 31 of this year, 47,017 unaccompanied children under 18 traveling without a parent or guardian were taken into custody, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. That total is nearly twice as high as all of the last fiscal year (24,493 apprehensions), with four months yet to go in the current fiscal year. One unofficial government estimate projects apprehensions rising to 90,000 in 2014—nearly four times as many as the year before.

Sharp rise in unaccompanied children from Mexico and Central America apprehended at the U.S. border.While Mexico is the top source of unauthorized immigrants in the U.S., three of every four unaccompanied children apprehended this year have come from Central America. Honduras, a nation wracked by gang violence, has seen the most striking increases. This year, more than 13,000 unaccompanied Honduran children were apprehended at the U.S. border compared with the 968 children apprehended five years ago. The number of unaccompanied Honduran children apprehended in 2014 so far is already nearly twice as high as all of last year. Continue reading this article

Immigrant Jihadist Sami Osmakac Is Convicted in Florida

We are told by diversity experts that Muslims from Europe are more “moderate” (less head-choppy) than their Arab ummah-brothers. But wanna-be bomber Sami Osmakac (pictured below), a naturalized citizen from Kosovo, had some extremely evil plans for Americans, as we learned in his recent trial. (See my 2012 blog, Florida: Muslim Immigrant Arrested for Bomb Plot.)

Trials are wonderful events, particularly when they reveal details about the behavior of jihadists residing in America. The public is cheated every time the government arranges a plea deal with a terrorist, because vital information about public safety is shut off. We need to know what is going on in our own country with the enemies that Washington welcomes as immigrants and refugees.

As usual, a Muslim terror trial is local news only, ho hum stuff according to the information keepers of the mainstream media.

Man guilty of trying to buy weapons in terror plot, Associated Press, June 10, 2014

TAMPA, Fla. — A Florida man was convicted Tuesday of trying to buy weapons for what authorities say was a planned terror attack on a Tampa casino and bar.

It took five hours for a federal jury to find Sami Osmakac guilty of possessing an unregistered automatic weapon and attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. He faces life in prison at an Oct. 7 sentencing.

The 27-year-old was arrested in 2012 after authorities said he tried to buy weapons, including a car bomb and an AK-47, from an undercover agent he thought was an arms dealer.

During closing arguments, federal prosecutor Sara Sweeney said Osmakac wanted to remotely detonate a car bomb near a Tampa Irish pub, then take hostages and start a shootout at the Hard Rock Casino in order to get Muslim prisoners released. He then was going to blow himself up when police closed in on him, Sweeney said.

“The most powerful thing you can see are the defendant’s own words,” she said, referring to a video he recorded before he was arrested. “His intent was to commit a violent act in America.”

During the three-week trial, jurors heard from psychiatrists who said Osmakac is mentally ill. Prosecutors also played videos recorded by a confidential informant.

In one of the recordings with the informant, Osmakac referred to blowing up bridges over Tampa Bay.

“If you take those bridges out and they won’t have food, medicine, they be shocked nobody can go to work, two million people, three million people will be sitting ducks,” referring to bridges connecting Pinellas County to Hillsborough County. Continue reading this article

Joe Biden: Immigration Must Be ‘Constant, Unrelenting’ for Economy

We know that liberals don’t care about having a productive business climate, as indicated by how much they regulate the life out of it. How then do they think economic growth can be induced into happening?

Judging by Joe Biden’s recent remarks to the National Association of Manufacturers, he envisions a ponzi scheme of endless immigration to goose up the GDP. Yep, the Vice President doesn’t worry about associated problems with unlimited population growth, like a threatened water supply, paving over farmland and gridlock as a lifestyle: to Biden, immigration is the universal solution.

Biden apparently disregards the value created by science and innovation, like the billion-dollar companies of Silicon Valley. He would rather pile in lots more cheap-labor immigrants who will vote Democrat. And because most of the newbies are low-skilled, many millions of them will be required to maintain the consumer economy.

Biden: We need ‘constant, unrelenting stream’ of immigrants, The Hill, June 10, 2014

Vice President Biden painted a rosy picture of the outlook for U.S. businesses Tuesday, but said economic growth hinges in large part on immigration reform, now languishing in Congress.

“We need it badly from a purely – purely economic point of view,” Biden said during remarks to the National Association of Manufacturers.

The call came amid a wide-ranging address to the business group, in which Biden said the United States is better positioned than its rivals to compete in the global marketplace.

“We have the most resilient economy in the world,” Biden told hundreds of people gathered at the business group’s annual conference. “We’re better positioned than any country in the world to lead the world in the 21st Century.”

Biden said a key to the country’s solid economic footing is the “the ‘constant, unrelenting stream’ of immigrants that has come to the United States for generations.

“Not dribbling,” Biden explained. “Significant flows.” Continue reading this article

Senator Sessions Hammers DHS Secretary about Border Lawlessness

America’s most patriotic Senator took DHS chief Jeh Johnson to task for the overwhelming chaos now happening on the border.

The occasion was a Senate Judiciary Committee oversight hearing on Wednesday. Johnson’s opening statement may be read online, if a headache is desired.

Senator Sessions blamed the current border anarchy on the administration, noting, “Your leadership and the president’s leadership has failed to send a clear message throughout the world that you can only come to the United States lawfully, In fact, you’ve conveyed a message that conveys just the opposite.”

Sessions also showed a photo of a Border Patrol officer who had been injured by a thrown rock:

New York Times Admits FGM Is an Immigrant Crime

Liberal publications are hypocrites about immigration, normally characterizing the influx of diversity into American communities as an entirely positive influence, while ignoring the appalling cultural practices of certain ethnicities and religions. Horrific crimes are reported, but they usually hang in the air with no cultural context provided to explain the motivation.

Today’s front page New York Times effort about female genital mutilation (FGM) is better than most, since the word “immigrant” is used, and more than once. It also mentions the specific nations where the savage behavior is most prevalent (i.e. Somalia, Guinea, Djibouti, Eritrea, Mali).

However being born in America doesn’t mean a person is culturally a part of this country, and being raised in a third-world family leaves some young people in the dark. Girls at risk for FGM (a federal crime) are unlikely to know how to get help.

Of course, the real question is why import such monstrous cultural norms via immigration in the first place? Leave the barbarians in their homelands where they can abuse one another away from civilization’s laws.

A Fight as U.S. Girls Face Genital Cutting Abroad, New York Times, June 11, 2014

ATLANTA — Last summer, an American-born teenager of Somali descent fled her parents’ home in a suburb here after she discovered that a coming vacation to Somalia would include a sacred rite of passage: the cutting of her genitalia. In Guinea, a New Yorker escaped to the American Embassy after an aunt told her that her family trip would involve genital cutting. And in Seattle, at least one physician said parents had sent girls back to Somalia to undergo cutting.

Immigrant parents from African and other nations have long sent their daughters back to their ancestral homes for the summer, a trip intended to help them connect with their families and traditions.

During their stays, some girls are swept into bedrooms or backwoods and subjected to genital cutting in the belief that it will prevent promiscuity, ready them for marriage or otherwise align them with the ideals of their culture.

“Vacation cutting,” as the practice is deemed by those who oppose it, has existed in immigrant enclaves around the world for decades. Federal law has banned genital cutting in the United States since 1996, and last year it became illegal to transport girls for that purpose.

But some are concerned that such cutting could be on the rise. The number of African immigrants in the United States has more than quadrupled in the past two decades to almost 1.7 million, according to the Census Bureau. The growing numbers have brought new attention to the issue, and have spurred a small Internet-age, app-enabled support network of girls and women who have been victims of cutting, or believe they will be.

About 228,000 women and girls in the United States have been cut or are at risk of it, according to an analysis that uses 14-year-old census data. Continue reading this article

Laura Ingraham Interviews Dave Brat on the Occasion of His Victory

On Wednesday, radio talker Laura Ingraham celebrated the stunning victory of Dave Brat over Majority Leader Eric Cantor. She noted that the national Tea Party organizations like Tea Party Patriots (where Jenny Beth Martin makes $500K) have become a new establishment and wrote Brat off. Local Tea Party folks pitched in to help with the campaign, but no money was forthcoming from the big organizations.

Laura discussed Dave Brat’s appeal — his warmth, courage and communications skills. She compared him to Sen Jeff Sessions as educating his constituents during the campaign on important issues like the harm for working people contained in amnesty. He is an economics professor, so he has a lot of practice in educating.

Brat called in for the interview and praised all the people who worked for his election, making the phone calls and knocking on doors. He said he ran as a Republican on traditional principles of fiscal responsibility, Constitutional governance, the rule of law, peace through strength and US sovereignty.

Listen to the interview on Laura Ingraham.com.

Fox News’ Brit Hume (an admitted supporter of amnesty) correctly recognized the power of conservative media:

“There are parts of this country where if Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter and Mark Levin are on the radio supporting you, that’s worth a lot! In fact if somebody said would you rather have Freedomworks behind you or would you rather have any of those three radio talk show hosts in there plugging for you day by day, I think I know what my choice would be.”

The three people Hume mentioned are true warriors against amnesty. Coulter in particular will routinely bring up amnesty when the subject is something that appears unconnected but isn’t. By comparison, Rush Limbaugh only discusses illegal immigration when it’s unavoidable.

Dave Brat has a YouTube channel. The following press conference was posted on May 28 and focuses on immigration, particularly Cantor’s support for open borders and cheap labor for corporations.

Camp of the Saints on the Rio Grande

The border situation is chaos on steroids, with thousands of unaccompanied kids and families streaming in from Central America, where they heard on television that kids are guaranteed amnesty tickets.

In the video clip below, documentary filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch warns that the invasion is only beginning:

“It’s about to get worse. . . Entire villages are emptying out and coming from Central America through Mexico to the United States. They’ll be hitting in the next couple weeks. What you are seeing right now is the tip of the iceberg.”

There’s no reason why millions won’t come, since Washington has announced America’s borders are wide open. Just bring a kid or claim to be one (with fraudulent ID). And be sure to say you have a “credible fear” of persecution.

Below: Many illegal aliens ride a freight train nicknamed The Beast from southern Guatemala. An estimated half million hispanics travel on the train north to America every year.

Remember the Mariel Boatlift? That Democrat-created crisis transformed Miami from a nice American city into a crime-infused Cuban one, after Castro dumped his prison population on the US. And that humanitarian crisis brought only 125,000 Spanish-speaking foreigners.

The Daily Caller reports, “a leaked estimate by a top official in the Department of Homeland Security says the 12-month inflow will reach 90,000 by October, and then grow by another 142,000 in the next 12 months before October 2015.” That’s over 230,000, nearly a quarter million that the Democrats hope to dump on US taxpayers.

On Monday, the White House requested $2 billion to pay for the feeding and lawyers of the illegal aliens. Consider it down payment.

Why aren’t there troops on the border? It may be hard to recall now, but Obama did post the National Guard on the border in 2010 so there’s no reason why he couldn’t do it again.

Border Patrol, Then and Now, as Expressed by the New Open Borders Strategy

Remember when the Border Patrol defended America’s perimeter from murderous jihadists, Mexican gangsters, various criminals and job thieves from around the world?

Lately, not so much. The federal law enforcement officers have been forced into welcome wagon providers to alien women and children enticed to enter America illegally by being told that a kid was a guaranteed ticket to stay. So many illegal kids have arrived in south Texas that the feds have been transferring them to Arizona — just a little smackdown from the feds to the state that dared to enforce immigration itself.

“Welcome, future Democrats!”

And just what is the cause of the sudden surge for El Norte?

Glenn Beck thinks that the administration has planted the story in Latin American media, which has been telling people to run for the border now.

The governments of the poor Central American nations would probably be agreeable to thousands of their citizens leaving for the US, because the remittances might well be more than the taxes those people would pay. In Honduras, for example, 20 percent of the GDP comes from remittances.

Back to Arizona and the alien kiddies, a Phoenix TV station reported June 6, DHS program that buses immigrants to AZ, no signs of stopping. The story follows the script of “humanitarian crisis” rather than a created crisis.

Indeed, the illegal aliens are being welcomed, not deported, so they keep coming. Word gets around. Why would they not come?

Singapore Chooses Immigration Limits

Somehow the people of Singapore missed the message from elites that massive diverse immigration is the best idea ever. Average folks have showed up in the thousands to protest the importation of foreign workers, including a group on this year’s May Day, even though public demonstrations are rare events there.

Below, thousands of Singaporeans protested immigration on May Day 2013.

Singapore is already one of the most densely populated nations on earth, with nearly 20,000 humans per square mile. Furthermore, companies prefer to hire cheap exploitable foreigners to replace qualified local people.

Where have we heard that before?

Anyway, the finance minister has announced that the government will lower the number of foreign workers to maintain social stability. (Funny how the “I” word — immigrants — doesn’t show up in this article.)

Let’s hope it happens, so we can observe a sensible immigration strategy that emphasizes the well being of citizens workers and the preservation of the national culture over saving a few nickels.

Singapore finance minister accepts slower growth as trade-off for social stability, Reuters, June 6, 2014

(Reuters) – Singapore is willing to accept slower growth as a trade-off for social stability as it aims to keep down the number of foreigners working in the city-state, Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam told Reuters.

Over the past decade, Singapore’s economy has expanded by a 6.4 percent annual average. Tharman said that he would be happy if Singapore grew 3 percent a year, as long as growth was driven mainly by gains in productivity.

“Three percent growth is good growth,” he said during an interview on Thursday.

High past growth has brought rising numbers of foreigners to work in wealthy Singapore, which in turn has spurred discontent among citizens angered by the strains put on infrastructure and services.

Between 2000 and 2013, Singapore’s population rose to 5.4 million from 4 million, with foreigners accounting for the bulk of the 35 percent increase.

Unhappiness about inflows of foreigners helped an opposition party gain ground in the 2011 general elections as the People’s Action Party, which has ruled Singapore since independence in 1965, won only 60 percent of votes, its worst showing to date. The next election must be held by January 2017.

Tharman, who is also a deputy prime minister, said the government accepts a slower growth rate as the cost of ensuring the country retains its national identity, combats over-crowding and keeps the ratio of foreign to local workers at around one-third.

NOT LIKE DUBAI
“We are never going to be Dubai, we are a country with a social ethos that we take very seriously,” the 57-year-old finance minister said.

The number of foreigners in Dubai is larger than that of locals, a result of its aggressive economic growth strategy. Continue reading this article

Central American Media: Take Your Kid to US, 'You Won't Be Turned Away'

In the dirtbag countries south of Mexico, broadcasters are telling people that NOW is the time for a run on the border and that a kid is the guaranteed ticket in.

The following story has a video within that starts out well enough explaining the media influence on the border surge but quickly devolves into a formulaic sob story about a cutesy six-year-old and her previously deported mom sniffling about wanting a future for her daughter.

Illegal Immigrant: Reports in Central America Encourage Trek North, KRGV TV Rio Grande Valley, June 3, 2014

McALLEN – Central Americans say news reports in their countries are encouraging them to make the journey north to the United States.

A mother and child told CHANNEL 5 NEWS that the message being disseminated in their country is, “go to America with your child, you won’t be turned away.”

The woman, Nora Griselda Bercian Diaz, from Guatemala, said she endured threats from the Zetas and extortion from corrupt Mexican police. She eventually crossed the Rio Grande with her 6-year-old Delmi Griselda Paul Bercian by her side.

The woman said she wants a U.S. education for her daughter.

“I want to study,” said the girl who hopes to one day become a doctor.

A CHANNEL 5 NEWS crew met the mother and daughter three hours after they crossed the border illegally. They were lost and searching for Border Patrol agents.

“I was planning to go to McAllen then call a friend for her to send me money on the bus,” Bercian Diaz said.

Bercian Diaz said she has no family in the United States. Her hope of staying here relies on her little girl. She said the message in her country is that America’s borders are open to all families.

News reports in Guatemala say mothers and small children are getting bus tickets, Bercian Diaz said. Continue reading this article
