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.

Contractors who bring in these immigrants are paid by the head with U.S. taxpayers’ money. They are well organized so they can protect their cushy salaries and nice offices from which their staff finance the resettlement of so-called “refugees.” The big difference between these asylum refugees and other immigrants is that refugees are entitled to all forms of government-paid welfare the minute they set foot in America. Ordinary legal immigrants are required to show that they have the means to support themselves and won’t become a “public charge.” The feds even give asylum immigrants start-up money for up to 6 months, giving their contractor time to sign them up for subsidized housing, healthcare, food stamps, and job training.

The children of these asylum refugees are quickly enrolled in public schools. Many of these kids not only can’t speak English, they don’t even speak Spanish and require translators of languages unknown to most Americans. Many cities are now resisting this invasion of their towns and schools. The U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement is trying to keep them in line by calling them “Pockets of Resistance” and hiring a left-wing community organizing group called Welcoming America to shut them up. We can blame this mischief on supremacist judges, who ruled in 1982 that immigrant kids are entitled to attend U.S. public schools.
