State Laws Allowing Bible Electives

Bills have been introduced in the West Virginia and Oklahoma state legislatures to encourage public schools to offer Bible electives. These electives aren’t a new idea—they already exist in a few places in Texas, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania. They’re usually history courses. They’re certainly not devotional religious studies.

Where Did the Refugee Racket Start?

Ann Corcoran is an American scholar who has made it her business to track the admission of refugees into our country. She runs a website called Refugee Resettlement Watch. She doesn’t criticize our policy of admitting genuine refugees from persecution, but she does criticize our government’s high admittance numbers, the secrecy of the program, the lack of community involvement in deciding where the immigrants will be located, and the large-scale admission of ethnic groups that have no intention of assimilating in America. This semi-secret process is the result of the Refugee Act of 1980, which was the brainchild of Ted Kennedy, aggressively supported by Joe Biden, and signed into law by Jimmy Carter.

The Costly Asylum Racket

We’re constantly hearing the bad effects of Obama’s executive orders admitting millions of illegal immigrants and giving them welfare, Social Security, driver’s licenses, and a path to citizenship. Like many Americans, I realized the importance of this when thousands of unfamiliar people from a foreign country, without any advance notice, appeared in my community. I attended an education conference where Ann Corcoran, a knowledgeable speaker, began to describe the asylum racket to admit millions of foreigners to our country. She started by asking questions of her audience.

Illegal Immigrants Get Handouts and Jobs

Just in case Obama’s 5,000,000 new amnestied illegals need spending money, they can collect a special handout from the U.S. taxpayers called EITC (Earned Income Tax Credit), which was designed to help parents who are working to support their families. The IRS Commissioner (John Koskinen), told the Senate Finance Committee on Feb. 3 that as soon as the illegal aliens receive their Social Security numbers, they will be allowed to go back and claim the EITC for up to three previous years in which they worked illegally. And what about the employers who illegally hired these people? They get off scot-free, even though documentation clearly exists to prosecute them.
