Texas first state to opt out of federal refugee resettlement program

On September 26, 2019, President Trump signed Executive Order 13888 requiring federal refugee resettlement agencies to get written consent from state and local officials in any jurisdiction where they want to resettle refugees beyond June 2020. As the Executive Order on Enhancing State and Local Involvement in Refugee Resettlement stipulates:

In resettling refugees into American communities, it is the policy of the United States to cooperate and consult with State and local governments, to take into account the preferences of State governments, and to provide a pathway for refugees to become self-sufficient.

Not only must the Federal Government consult with State and local governments, they must be “be respectful of those communities that may not be able to accommodate refugee resettlement” because State and local governments are best positioned to know the resources and capacities they may or may not have available to devote to sustainable resettlement.

Trump’s executive order also cut the number of refugees allowed into the country for the 2020 fiscal year to a historic low of 18,000. About 30,000 refugees were resettled in the U.S. during the previous fiscal year.

Texas has large refugee populations in several of its cities and has long been a leader in settling refugees, taking in more than any other state during the 2018 governmental fiscal year, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Since the 2002 fiscal year, Texas has resettled an estimated 88,300 refugees, second only to California, according to the Pew Research Center.

Danielle Wallace reports for Fox News that yesterday, Texas became the first state to opt out of the federal refugee resettlement program — a move made possible by Trump’s executive order.

In a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Texas’ Republican Gov. Greg Abbott says Texas “has carried more than its share” in refugee resettlement. Since FY 2010, Texas has taken in more refugees than any other state — about 10% of all refugees resettled in the United States. But in accepting and resettling those refugees, Texas has had no help from the federal government, but “has been left by Congress to deal with disproportionate migration issues resulting from a broken federal immigration system.”

In addition, Abbott pointed out that, according to federal numbers, about 100,000 migrants have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border into Texas since May 2018, who included migrants from China, Iran, Kenya, Russia and Tonga.

Citing “a responsibility to dedicate available resources to those who are already here,” including refugees, migrants, the homeless, and “all Texans,” Abbott says Texas “cannot consent to initial refugee resettlement for FY 2020.” But Texas’ opting out of the initial refugee resettlement program for the 2020 fiscal year does not deny any refugee access to the U.S., nor does it prevent any refugee from later coming to Texas after initially settling in another state.

However, the Democrat mayors of major Texas metropolitan areas, including San Antonio, Dallas and Houston, sent the federal government letters saying they remain willing to welcome refugees despite the state action. As an example, Democrat mayor of Houston Sylvester Turner said in a statement: “Regardless of where someone is from, who they are or what they believe, there is a home for them in Houston. Our welcoming spirit has led to our city becoming the national leader in refugee resettlement.”

Governors in 42 other states have said they will consent to allowing in more refugees, according to the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, which works with local agencies throughout the U.S. to resettle refugees. The governors not yet on the record are all Republicans — from Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, South Carolina and Wyoming.

Abbott’s letter enraged Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Somali immigrant, who earlier in the week had decried a similar move by county-level officials in her home state of Minnesota that was also facilitated by Trump’s executive order. Omar tweeted the Statue of Liberty’s “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,” and vowed “We shall overcome!”.

Rotten fruit of Europe’s open-door policy: New Year’s Eve riot in EU capital Brussels

For some time now, Fellowship of the Minds hasn’t posted much on Muslim shenanigans in Europe, but that doesn’t mean all is peaceful and quiet.

Here’s a recent whopper of an incident when some 50-60,000 people took part in the New Year celebrations at the Atomium, a landmark building in Brussels, originally constructed for the 1958 Brussels World Expo. Brussels is the capital of Belgium and the de facto capital of the European Union (EU).

Sarah Crew reports for The Bulletin that on New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, 2019, “disturbances” in Brussels involved:

  • The throwing of projectiles.
  • A tram that had its windows broken.
  • A damaged bus shelter.
  • 82 bins, 19 cars, two mopeds, and 9 apartments set on fire.
  • A collapse balcony in Schaerbeek while people were standing on it.
  • 165 emergency calls for medical assistance; 50 to homes and 115 to public streets.
  • A 21-year-old man with a serious knife wound.
  • During the firework display at the Atomium, there were 23 responses and 10 ambulance transfers. This was in addition to 60 interventions and five ambulance transfers during the celebrations at Palais 10 and 12 in Heysel.
  • Police made 185 administrative and 26 judicial arrests.
  • By the next (New Year) morning, six people were charged by the Brussels prosecutor — three were accused of theft, the other three were charged with domestic violence.
  • Police had set up a taskforce to identify the perpetrators of the “disturbances” and called on the public, media and local businesses to share any images they have. Spokesperson Denis Goeman said, “The aim is to identify as many rioters as possible and to prosecute them in order to send the message that such acts are unacceptable and will not go unpunished.”

The New Year’s Eve violence was actually better handled and coordinated by the police, after criticism of police handling of New Year’s Eve violence in 2019, which included riots in Molenbeek.

Brussels-Ixelles police spokesperson Olivier Slosse said police coordination worked well, “Fire services were able to work in total security. These are dramatic figures, but police quickly intervened in very different areas. The situations did not have time to gain momentum in the same place. We have the impression that we managed to prevent the situation from escalating to the point of last year.”

@DVATW tweeted this video of the New Year’s Eve “disturbances” in the EU capital:

The tweets in response to the video all say the rioters were Muslim “immigrants”. Below is a sample of the comments:

“When this same Mob were at the gates of Vienna in 1529 & 1683 it was called INVASION. Now it’s call the Diversification of Europe. Wake-Up!!!”

“Invite the 3rd world…….”

“Europe will crumble Europeans will perish Stringent border controls are a necessity in order for any chance of survival.”

“It is a problem all across Europe, and North America unfortunately and people need to reclaim the rights that are being eradicated by Globalist Government Officials by voting them out at each and every opportunity. The next step they will use against us is ‘declaring martial law’.”

“No doubt the MSM will be all over this tomorrow, no? Oh well”

Virginia Democrat bill will eliminate suburban single-family housing zones

This is Democrat socialism-retribution and Agenda 21 all rolled into one tyrannical bill.

Elections have consequences.

Since last November 6’s election that gave control of Virginia’s entire state government to Democrats, the victors have been on a tear to impose gun control. See “Virginians form sanctuaries and militias against governor & state legislature gun grab“.

To the growing list of Virginia Democrats’ tyranny and malice should be added a bill that will change the character of quiet suburbs by overriding local zoning officials to legalize multi-family housing in every neighborhood currently zoned for single-family homes. 

On January 8, 2020, Virginia Assemblyman Ibraheem S. Samirah introduced House Bill no. 152 (HB-152), “A BILL to amend the Code of Virginia by adding a  section numbered 15.2-2292.2, relating to zoning two-family development on single-family lots,” which will change the suburbs by overriding local zoning officials to permit multi-family housing in all neighborhoods now zoned for single-family housing.

Born in Chicago, IL, of Palestinian parents, Ibraheem Samirah is a Democrat who was elected in February 2019 in a special election to the Virginia House of Delegates for the 86th district, which includes parts of Fairfax and Loudoun Counties in suburban Washington, D.C. Samirah was re-elected to a full-term in November 2019.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the U.S. government had banned from the U.S. for a decade Samirah’s father, Jordanian refugee Sabri Samirah, in part because of his membership in the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group. (Daily Caller)

Below is the available text of HB 152:

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:

That the Code of Virginia is amended by adding a section numbered 15.2-2292.2 as follows:

12§ 15.2-2292.2. Two-family development allowed on lots zoned for single-family use.

All localities adopting a zoning ordinance under the provisions of this article shall allow development or redevelopment of middle housing residential units upon each lot zoned for single-family residential use. For purposes of this section, “middle housing” means a two-family residential unit, including duplexes, townhouses, cottages, and any similar structure by whatever name it may be known. Such structures shall not require a special use permit or be subjected to any other local requirements beyond those imposed upon other authorized residential uses. Localities may regulate the siting, design, and environmental standards of middle housing residential units, including setback requirements, provided that the regulations do not, individually or cumulatively, discourage the development of all middle housing types permitted through unreasonable costs or delay. Nothing in this section shall prohibit local governments from permitting (i) single-family dwellings in areas zoned to allow for single-family dwellings, or (ii) middle housing in areas not required under this section.

What HB 152 doesn’t say is that its definition of “middle housing” as any two-family residential unit, includes public housingIn a tweet on December 22, 2019, Samirah telegraphed his intention to put public housing units in single-family housing zones:

Important Q [question] about new social/public housing programs: where are we going to put the units?

Under current zoning, new low-income housing is relegated to underinvested neighborhoods, concentrating poverty more.

Ending exclusionary zoning has to be part of broader housing reform.

Samirah’s purpose for HB 152 is two-pronged:

(1) Retribution against “most white and wealthy” Virginians who are not aligned with the Democratic Party:

Samirah told the Daily Caller, “Single-family housing zones would become two-zoned. Areas that would be impacted most would be the suburbs that have not done their part in helping out…. Those are the areas that the state is having significant trouble dealing with. They’re living in a bubble.”

(2) Socialism — racial and class equality:

In response to a question about whether people who bought homes in spacious suburbs have valid, non-discriminaton reasons for preferring to live that way — including a love for nature and desire to preserve woods and streams — Samirah wrote on Facebook: “Caring about nature is very important, but the more dense a neighborhood is, the more energy efficient it is. Because middle housing is what’s most affordable for low-income people and people of color, banning that housing in well-off neighborhoods chalks up to modern-day redlining, locking folks out of areas with better access to schools, jobs, transit, and other services and amenities. I will certainly get pushback for this. Some will call it ‘state overreach.’ Some will express anxiety about neighborhood change. Some may even say that the supply issue doesn’t exist. But the research is clear: zoning is a barrier to more housing and integrated communities.”

Tim Hannigan, chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee, told the Daily Caller HB 152 “could completely change the character of suburban residential life, because of the urbanization that would develop. So much of the American dream is built upon this idea of finding a nice quiet place to raise your family, and that is under assault. This is a power-grab to take away the ability of local communities to establish their own zoning practices … literally trying to change the character of our communities.”

Other cities and states have passed bills similar to Virginia’s HB 152, including Oregon; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Austin, Texas; and Seattle, Washington.

Ain’t multiculturalism grand? Grooming ‘epidemic’ as almost 19,000 children identified as sexual exploitation victims in England

The faces of multiculturalism in England…

From The Independent: Almost 19,000 children have been sexually groomed in England in the past year, according to official figures that have prompted warnings of an “epidemic”.

Campaigners say the true figure is far higher and accused the government of failing to tackle child sexual exploitation, despite promises made after high-profile cases in Rotherham and Rochdale.

More than 18,700 suspected victims of child sexual exploitation were identified by local authorities in 2018-19, up from 3,300 five years before.

Sarah Champion, the Labour MP for Rotherham, said the figures show that grooming “remains one of the largest forms of child abuse in the country”.

“Too many times, government has said it will ‘learn lessons’, yet 19,000 children are still at risk of sexual exploitation,” she told The Independent.

The government has singularly failed to tackle this issue head on. Its approach has been piecemeal and underfunded.”

Sajid Javid promised a review into the characteristics of grooming gangs in 2018, saying high-profile cases included a “high proportion of men of Pakistani heritage” and that “cultural reasons” could be at play.

The Independent understands that the Home Office started internal analysis of data from police and other agencies, and will use it to inform policy development and prevention strategies.But the findings may not be published and the Queen’s Speech, which set out Boris Johnson’s legislative agenda, did not include any mention of a public review.

Several grooming gang investigations and prosecutions are ongoing across the country, including in Huddersfield where several abusers have already been jailed in a series of linked trials.

In Rotherham, where revelations over the abuse of an estimated 1,500 victims sparked a national scandal in 2012, the National Crime Agency has identified more than 190 suspects.

Sammy Woodhouse, a Rotherham victim who helped expose the scandal, said she is still receiving reports of current abuse in parts of the country. “You hear this bulls*** line, ‘lessons have been learned’, but they haven’t learned anything,” she told The Independent.

I still hear a lot about the authorities aren’t doing things as they should. It’s not very often I hear something good and for all different reasons – if the police won’t act on reports, people feel they’re not being listened to or supported properly, or information not being shared.”

George Soros banned from 6 countries

Though he is 89 years old, George Soros — through his Open Society Foundations, to which he’s donated more than $32 billion — continues to foment turmoil, unrest and mischief across the world.

In the United States, Soros has/had his hand in the Antifa, the Ferguson race riots, the “caravans” of Central American “migrants,” and the “whistleblower” who ignited the Demonrats’ current efforts to impeach President Trump. In Europe, Soros is behind the flood of “refugees” and “migrants,” Ukraine, “climate change” activist Great Thunberg, and the Brexit chaos.

Some countries, however, have taken steps to expel and ban Soros, his operatives, and his Open Society. In chronological order, the six countries are:

  1. Pakistan
  2. Poland
  3. Turkey
  4. Russia
  5. Hungary
  6. Philippines

While not outright banning him, the Israeli government has said Soros is not welcome there.

The only question is why Soros still has not been banned from the United States.

Since August 2017, there is a “White House petition to declare George Soros a terrorist and seize all of his related organizations’ assets under RICO and NDAA law,” which has been signed by 197,385 people — enough to get a response from the White House. To sign the petition, go here.

Charges against Muslim man who killed Jewish teacher while chanting verses from the Koran are dropped because he was high

Sarah Halimi

There are so many aspects of this story that are just wrong. Just so wrong.

From Daily Mail: A Muslim man who killed a Jewish kindergarten teacher has had murder charges against him dropped after it was ruled he suffered a psychotic episode by smoking cannabis.

Kobili Traore, 29, is believed to have tortured Sarah Halimi with beatings for hours in her Paris apartment while reciting lines from the Koran on April 4, 2017.

The Mali immigrant then shoved the 65-year-old mother-of-three from the eleventh arrondissement building before reportedly yelling: ‘I’ve killed the Shaitan (devil)!’

Earlier this week (last week when this story was published) he admitted killing her but said he did not recognise when he broke in and claimed he was not aware of his actions.

‘I felt persecuted. When I saw the Torah and a chandelier in her home I felt oppressed. I saw her face transforming,’ he said according to The Jewish Chronicle.

Prosecutors disagreed over how to deal with the killer, with local ones initially calling for him to be tried but the senior procureur général saying he should be put in hospital.

Psychiatric examinations of the defendant, who claims to smoke up to 15 joints per day, found his mental functioning was impaired due to his cannabis intake.

Although three assessments determined Traore’s long-term drug habit had not inflicted him with mental illness, their verdicts differed insofar as his mental capacity during the killing.

A hearing on Wednesday heard Traoré shouted ‘a woman is trying to kill herself’ before he threw her from the balcony.

Lawyers for Ms. Halimi’s family claimed this proved he was mounting a defence from the beginning.

The defendant’s lawyer Thomas Bidnic said: ‘This is Sarah Halimi’s tragedy, her family’s tragedy and this boy’s tragedy, although I’m not comparing the two. Sending him to hospital is not ideal nor sending him to prison.

He admitted Traoré is ‘still a threat’ while he remains in a hospital getting limited medication.

A ruling on if he should face trial will be decided on December 19.

Italian government gives 3,700% more aid to ‘migrants’ than its own disabled citizens

Have you wondered why the Left support and ally with radical Islam, including working actively to promote and facilitate the importation of Muslim “refugees” into Europe and the U.S.?

The explanation for that strange and unholy alliance goes beyond the adage,  “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. As pointed out by Dr. Abdessamad Belhaj, a highly regarded scholar of Islam, the Left and Islam share affinities that are structural, not accidental:

  • For the Muslim migrants, the West is a source of economic goodies, including welfare.
  • For Western political elites, Muslim migrants are a means toward political power (via votes); a minimum-wage immigrant workforce with “an impulse” for consumerism, which is the opiate used by the state to control the masses; and globalization, which is why the elites denigrate and oppose nationalism, especially President Trump’s championing of America First and Make America Great Again.

See my posts, “Why the Left encourage the cancer of Muslim migrants” and “UN admits ‘refugees’ are ‘replacement migration’ for Europe and other low-fertility countries”.

Here’s yet another example and illustration of of the unholy alliance of the Left and Islam: Italy’s government gives 3,700% more welfare money to “migrants” than to its own disabled citizens.

Muslim migrants in Italy

Luca Sablone reports for il Giornale.it, January 11, 2019 (Google translation into English here), that each “migrant” is given about 20 Euros (U.S. $22.04) a day — €600 or $661.11 a month — whereas disabled Italian citizens get only 54 cents (€o.54 or $0.60) a day (€16.2o or $18 a month).

Note: By my calculation, “migrants” receive 3,700% more financial aid than disabled Italians.

There are about 3 million disabled people in Italy, 2 million of whom receive disability benefits or a pension. “In some cases, a monthly disability benefit of €1,000 does not allow us to lead a dignified life.”

According to the Jan. 11, 2019 edition of Libero, the government’s draft Budget Law included a Disability and Self-Reliance Fund, which allots €50 million for the year 2020, €200 million for 2021, and €300 million per year beginning 2022. Dividing this figure by Italy’s 3 million “non-ambulatory” disabled, that means the financial aid for every disabled person is 54 Euro-cents per day (€16.2 a month), which is insufficient to pay for even basic needs like transport or clothing.

Although Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, a Euroskeptic and member of the Northern League political party, reduced the welfare given to “migrants” from €35 to €21-22 a day, the gap between the financial aid given to “migrants” and that given to disabled Italians is still “truly absurd”.

Note: On 24 September 2018, Italy’s Council of Ministers approved the “Salvini Decree”, which contained a series of hardline measures, including the abolition of key forms of protection for migrants, making it easier for them to be deported; as well as the suspension of the refugee application process of migrants who are considered “socially dangerous” or who have been convicted of a crime. On September 5, 2019, Matteo Salvini stepped down as Deputy Prime Minister after announcing a motion of no-confidence against Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte. Political analysts see Salvini’s motion as a move to force a snap election where Salvini could become the next Prime Minister of Italy. (Wikipedia).

Returning from vacation, Amsterdam businessman found his property occupied by 40 migrants

The Dutch-language AT5 reports, August 19, 2019, that returning from vacation last week, Salih Ozcan, a businessman in Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, got a big surprise.

First, he found piles of garbage in front of his business property in Westpoort, a borough of Amsterdam.

Inside was an even worse surprise.

Some 40 “migrants” of We Are Here — a group of failed or refused asylum seekers — were squatting inside the property that Ozcan intends for his car company. He had first rented out the space, but “a bad tenant” used it for growing weed. After he evicted the tenant, he had the building refurbished.

When Ozcan tried to enter his property, one of the migrants blocked his entrance, told him to leave the premises, and threatened to call the police.

Ozcan exclaimed incredulously: “Do I have to leave my own building ?!”

A bewildered Ozcan told AT5I am a small entrepreneur who uses this property for his business. Because of them, I now don’t have a business. It’s a very bad feeling. I have no words for it at all. I can understand those people somewhat, but they don’t understand me at all. Unbelievable that this is possible in the Netherlands.”

Referring to the piles of trash outside, Ozcan said: “This is too crazy for words. Only rats and mice come here.”

The police said the squatters would not be evacuated “as a matter of urgency” and that on average, a property owner has to wait six weeks to evict. 

Ozcan meanwhile has hired a lawyer.

NYT editorial: Federal government should require Section-8 housing be built in ‘affluent’ communities

In July 2018, the editorial board of the New York Times abandoned all journalistic objectivity with an editorial calling on the Democrat Party to go to war against President Trump, using mafia “Godfather” tactics.

But the plain truth is that, unless you are a “useless idiot” who swears by and only reads that piece of rag like an attorney I know, the New York Times (NYT) had abandoned objectivity long before July 2018. See:

We should, therefore, take a recent NYT editorial and its recommendation for what it is — yet another big dose of biased, leftist toxin.

On July 7, 2019, NYT published the editorial, “A New Approach on Housing Affordability,” penned by its editorial board, which “represents the opinions of the board, its editor and the publisher.”

The editorial begins by stating the problem, that of the high and rising cost of rental housing in the United States, and bemoans how millions cannot afford to live in the neighborhoods that they want. 

The editorial then commends Democratic presidential candidates (Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren) who are addressing this problem with these policy proposals:

  1. Increase federal subsidies for renters, at a cost of $93 billion (Kamala Harris) to $134 billion a year (Cory Booker) and more (Julian Castro).
  2. Increase federal subsidies for the construction of affordable housing (Booker and Castro).
  3. Increase housing construction by having the federal government put pressure on local governments to allow more “development” (Elizabeth Warren). 

The NYT editorial opines that while increasing housing construction (“more market-rate development”) is a worthy goal, that isn’t enough — “Market-rate development, however, is not a sufficient solution.

The problems are two:

  1. “Wealthy residents” are the most resistant to “development”. In fact, “the states most resistant to allowing housing construction are the strongholds of the Democratic Party, in the Northeast and along the Pacific Coast, and the most resistant voters are the wealthy residents of those states who provide so much of the funding for Democratic presidential campaigns.”
  2. Even if the federal government increases rent and housing subsidies, “poor children” would still not be “raised in economically diverse neighborhoods” with better schools, but instead would live “in neighborhoods with high levels of poverty.”

The New York Times’ proposal is to revive and expand a policy of the Obama administration, wherein “poor” renters were given large vouchers to move to areas with more expensive housing and better schools, by having the “irristible force” of the federal government require “affluent communities to accept affordable housing projects.” 

In other words, if the NYT has its way, the federal government will compel local governments to construct Section 8 apartments and high-risers (“affordable housing”) in middle-class and “affluent” communities of single-family homes. Those “affordable” apartments and high-risers will be inhabited by the “poor” — among whom are gangbangers, illegal aliens and “refugees”.

This is socialism and the UN Agenda 21 on steroids.

President fauxcahontis Elizabeth Warren would admit 800% more refugees

Sam Dorman reports for Fox News that yesterday, July 11, 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released a sweeping immigration plan that would dramatically increase the number of refugees admitted into the United States by nearly 800% from FY 2018 and 250% from even the Obama years.

In FY 2018, because of President Trump’s bans on refugees from a number of countries in the Middle East deemed security threats, the number of refugee admissions fell to record lows to about 22,000. Warren decried Trump’s restrictions, calling it an “abuse” of his authority. She said she would increase the number of refugee admissions to 125,000 in her first year as President, which would be an increase of 795% from FY 2018.

Warren’s plan also includes:

(1) Repealing a law requiring local police to enforce federal immigration laws, as well as an end to “unnecessary” detention. She said: “We already have the tools to effectively track and monitor individuals without shoving them into cages and camps along the border. As President, I’ll issue guidance ensuring that detention is only used where it is actually necessary because an individual poses a flight or safety risk. Let there be no ambiguity on this: if you are violating the basic rights of immigrants, now or in the future, a Warren administration will hold you accountable.”

(2) Expand legal immigration.

(3) Decriminalize illegal border crossings. Warren said that as President, she would “take executive action to provide a measure of protection for those who are undocumented. I’ll work with Congress to pass broad-reaching reform, but I’m also prepared to move forward with executive action if Congress refuses to act.”

(4) Alleviate the migrant crisis by giving $1.5 billion a year in foreign aid to Central and South America.
