Refugee status often contrived to exploit: Arizona falls prey

First we direct your attention to a compelling commentary by conservative columnist Michelle Malkin, titled,Citizen revolt: Resist refugee resettlement dumps!

Read it from beginning to end. We promise you the facts will shock you out of your shoes.

Then hop over to the local newspaper. Monday’s pathetic edition was so anorexic it contained only two sections. Sports was one. Leftward skewed news was the other. Characterized by oversize photos, regurgitated reports and purchased content, it is rife with hearing aid ads and even those dealing with ED, aimed at the senior citizens who are accustomed to the flaccid plop of a folded newspaper on their driveway.

You’ll find an intriguing Page One report  that coalesces flawlessly with Malkin’s stunning assessment This one, however, details the welcoming of costly “refugees.” And, of course, it’s taking place right here under our noses in Arizona.  It’s time to get up to speed on this far-reaching problem as our state thrusts its finger in the eye of our citizens, but also President Trump, who has set more rational standards.

On September 26, 2019, President Trump signed an Executive Order specifying a humanitarian and responsible approach to refugees that protects the welfare of American citizens. This brief fact sheet clearly states his rational approach to  dealing with refugee resettlement, which increases transparency and prioritizes America’s citizens.

Important takeaways from the White House fact sheet:

The primary goal of our refugee policy is to enable refugees to ultimately return home, where they can help rebuild their communities – which also supports our foreign policy interests.

The United States spends billions of dollars resettling refugees that could be invested in our citizens here at home.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) spent more than $96 billion on programs supporting or benefiting refugees between 2005 and 2014. HHS surveys show that 45 percent of refugees arriving between 2011 and 2015 were receiving cash assistance and 49 percent were receiving Medicaid.

President Trump is prioritizing the safety and security of the American people by making sure we do not admit more people than we can vet. The United States can only admit so many refugees while ensuring we maintain a high standard of screening.

Proper controls are vital, as many refugees come from countries that are known sources of terrorism or lack the modern record keeping to help us identify their nationals.

Law enforcement has apprehended a number of alleged terrorists in recent years who passed through our refugee program.

This is the man the Democrats are intent on impeaching.

    Michelle Malkin’s column is a must read!!I I thank God for President Trump. He’s intentionally mischaracterized by the leftists who want to assure third world status for the United States. Their reasons are unfathomable, but can’t be denied. Ducey is obviously channeling open border proponent McCain.

  2. Hometown Guy says:

    Does anyone have any idea what’s driving Ducey’s thinking? If he has any further aspirations, his position is bizarre.

    • Villanova says:

      This is what Ducey had to say about the topic three years ago.

      Statement From Governor Doug Ducey
      News Release November 16, 2015
      PHOENIX – “Given the horrifying events in Paris last week, I am calling for an immediate halt in the placement of any new refugees in Arizona. As governor, I am invoking our state’s right under 8 USC, Section 1522 (a), to receive immediate consultation by federal authorities per the United States Refugee Act, and that the federal government take into account the concerns and recommendations of the state of Arizona as they are required to under federal law, in our efforts to keep our homeland safe. I also call on Congress and the President to immediately amend federal law to provide states greater oversight and authority in the administration of the placement of refugees. These acts serve as a reminder that the world remains at war with radical Islamic terrorists. Our national leaders must react with the urgency and leadership that every American expects to protect our citizens.”

    Term limited AZ Gov. Doug Ducey has done a complete switcharoo on his position on this resettlement issue. He’s obviously looking to attract a wider base when he runs for his next office. The former ice cream peddler must have his sights set on a congressional seat. He’s already patterning himself after his mentor McCain. My wife and I were among the conservative precinct committeemen who were purged by John McCain.

    Michelle’s article is an eye opener. It would appear that no matter what the cause, most so-called charities make money from the government or from people with good hearts who want to help. I have just one charity that I give money too consistently. The Salvation Army was there when I was a street cop and took in untold people that needed help. I am sure there are others but if I am not familiar with their work I look with a jaundice eye.

    That our politicians are taking advantage of the immigration problem should not be a shock to most of us. Governor Ducey has been a part of the McCain cabal for years and it is no surprise that he and his circle of politicians will go along with whatever will advance their cause.
