HSM Director, Brad Botwin Quoted in US News and World Report – Anti-Immigrant Hate Coming From Everyday Americans

Anti-Immigrant Hate Coming From Everyday Americans

Frustration with the current immigration system is coming from citizens, not hate groups.

FYI, Please go to the website to see the photos and videos, including the KKK protesting.

Protesters turn back three buses carrying 140 immigrants as they attempt to enter a U.S. Border Patrol station for processing in Murrieta, Calif., earlier this month.

By Lauren FoxJuly 24, 2014 | 12:01 a.m. EDT+ More

Waving American flags and chanting “go back home,” a mob of protesters stood in the center of a street in Murrieta, California, on July 1, halting three white buses filled with 140 immigrants. The crowd of between 200 to 300 people was enough to force the buses – filled with children and families – to reroute to a San Diego processing center more than 80 miles away.

In communities across the country, agitated citizens are crowding into town hall meetings aimed at preventing detention facilities from coming to their backyards. Concerns about immigrants draining local resources and changing the dynamics of communities are rampant. Clandestine government efforts to set up new detention centers in areas away from the border have also fueled unrest. Yet, unlike some past anti-immigrant movements, most of the protests are not centrally organized demonstrations by militia groups or nativist organizations, according to experts. They are grass roots uprisings by American citizens fed up with a broken immigration system.

“The people blocking buses in Murrieta, California, didn’t come from radical groups, they were everyday Americans who were perfectly willing to frighten those children,” says Mark Potok, a spokesman for the Southern Poverty Law Center, a group that monitors the rise of extremist organizations throughout the U.S. “What we are seeing is there is a lot of anger out there about the failure of the government to resolve the immigration crisis.”

[OPINION: Have A Heart, America]

Congress is mulling President Barack Obama’s $3.7 billion budget request to process, house and care for the more than 50,000 young migrants who have come unaccompanied across the border this year. But many communities are rising up against the kids, who are purportedly coming to escape violence or reunite with family in the United States.

“This has struck a chord. The American people feel like this is a real scam,” says Brad Botwin, a leader of Help Save Maryland, a group committed to stopping illegal immigration that is listed as a nativist group on SPLC’s website. “These are not refugees in my mind. This is an economic pitfall for the American people.”

In a spring report, the Southern Poverty Law Center noted “nativist extremist” groups have actually been in decline. The extremist groups reached their peak in 2010 when the SPLC counted 319. In 2013, there were just 33 groups left on the map.

Part of their decline has to do with their goals being reached. After Arizona and Alabama passed strict immigration laws that required police to check the immigration status of anyone they suspected to be in the country illegally, anti-immigrant groups lost some of their momentum.

“What happened was that the energy of the extreme nativist movement was stolen away by state legislatures that passed aggressive anti-immigrant laws,” Potok says.

Shawna Forde at her murder trial in 2011.
Potok notes the high-profile murder trial of Shawna Forde, an anti-immigrant leader of the Minutemen American Defense, which patrolled the border of Arizona and Mexico, also led some groups to retreat. Forde, who now sits on death row, and two others were convicted of killing Raul Flores and his 9-year-old daughter, Brisenia Ylianna Flores, in their home.

“It took the wind out of the sails of the nativist groups,” Potok says.

In 2013, another prominent nativist group leader, Chris Simcox, was arrested and charged with child molestation. He pleaded not guilty and is still awaiting trial.

[RUNNING SCARED: Young Migrants Face Danger at Home, the Border]

Even groups who are billed as nativist groups by the SPLC say that the recent outrage against the young immigrants is more a grass roots effort than centralized protests they put in motion.

“I have been kind of amazed at the number of people who have come out of the woodwork on this issue. A lot of people feel neglected,” says Jim Gilchrist, the founder of the Minuteman Project, a group that works to enforce immigration laws. Gilchrist founded the group with Simcox in 2005, but the two eventually split ways.

Detainees wait in a Texas processing facility on June 18.

Some of the protests – like the one in Murrieta and another campaign to encourage Americans to send dirty underwear to politicians and immigrant activists – even seemed to be more extreme than Gilchrist once called for.

“The case in point is that about 140 activists in Murrieta blocked the street, blocked the buses. They violated the law. They took the law into their own hands,” Gilchrist says. He adds that while he views the group of young immigrants as a mob violating the law, the protesting Americans are as well.

[ALSO: A Vexing Crisis at the Border]

“We are in a nation of mob rule. That mob was first the illegal alien population. Now the mob is becoming people on my side of the debate … I don’t condemn them, but I don’t support them,” he says.

The influx of unaccompanied children to the U.S. border has brought immigration to the doorstep of some rural communities that have never before had to confront immigration policy head-on.

The issue looms so large on the American psyche that the Ku Klux Klan has been preying on the anti-immigrant sentiment bubbling up across the country, hoping the racial-based frustration translates into new members. In South Carolina, the Klan left bags of candy and fliers with the message, “Save Our Land, Join the Klan,” in one neighborhood. On the fliers, a phone number led callers to an automated message that told listeners, “Illegal immigration is destroying America.” A similar recruitment effort was launched in Katy, Texas, in July, when Klan members left fliers with messages that said, “Seal the border – protect our nation.”

KKK Uses Sweets To Lure Recruits

The Ku Klux Klan is using bags of candy containing short Klan literature to recruit new members in South Carolina. Fox Carolina reports that people woke up over the weekend and found bags of candy outside…

A broken immigration system and porous borders are only part of the problem for Americans, however. Some of the frustration has been borne out of a lack of communication between the federal government and municipalities.

In the Department of Health and Human Services’ desperate search to find new housing facilities for kids awaiting more permanent placement with family or sponsors in the U.S., the federal government has at times operated clandestinely, only alerting the public late in the game once key decisions about potential housing facilities have already been made. The federal government has looked at converting old resorts, military bases and abandoned retail buildings into emergency shelters. That has led to clashes with locals concerned about the strain young migrants could place on their communities.

Scott Swagler, general manager of the Byblos Niagara Resort and Spa in Grand Island, New York, got his own visit from the feds in June when officials showed up to inspect his 263-room property, which they thought was out of business. Once the officials recognized the resort was still operating, it was no longer under consideration, but Swagler says he is disturbed that the federal government was considering disrupting his isolated community in upstate New York.

“We are in a very protected and insular community. This is the kind of place where people don’t even lock their doors,” Swagler says. “There is a fear of crime. Whether it is true or not, I am worried about gangs. We don’t have that here and Grand Island does not offer a bilingual education system.”

Town residents listen during a presentation on June 19 by federal officials involved in the placement of immigrant children at St. Paul’s College in Lawrenceville, Va.

While children taken to HHS facilities are only held for an average of 35 days, they are not released into the community. Instead, they are placed with families, often in locations outside the city where they are initially held. The federal government also covers the entire cost of the more than 100 facilities that exist today, even though misinformation has given way to paranoia that the cost of health care, housing and educating the children would fall to already cash-strapped municipalities.

In Virginia, federal officials had to attend a rural town meeting in Lawrenceville and apologize after residents discovered HHS was considering housing migrants at a local college.

“We are not just talking children here, we are talking boys from the ages of 14 and 17. I wanted to know how many were escaping,” says Harry Holman, a town councilman in Lawrenceville who was opposed to housing the immigrant children there. “I was also worried about the disease factor.”

Desperate to find space for the kids, HHS continues to expand its use of military facilities until more permanent facilities become available. That has led to some outrage on Capitol Hill, as lawmakers express disgruntlement with the arrangement.

WI cities identify sites to house hundreds of undocumented children – Watch Dog

WI cities identify sites to house hundreds of undocumented children

  July 23, 2014

By Adam Tobias | Wisconsin Reporter

MADISON, Wis. — Madison officials have identified three potential sites to house hundreds of undocumented child immigrants.

GIMME SHELTER: The cities of Madison and Milwaukee have offered up several sites to house hundreds of undocumented children coming to the country from the Mexican border.

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin toldWisconsin Reporter on Tuesday  two of the properties submitted to the federal government for review are the former Cub Foods store near Stoughton Road and the Shopko off Aberg Avenue, which is closing at the end of August.

The city has acquired the Cub Foods parcel for storage, but the facility won’t be needed for city purposes until the beginning of next year, according to Soglin.

Soglin could not recall the location of the third site, but he said it’s “completely surrounded by the city.”

Madison has been asked by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to find enough room to shelter between 150 and 250 undocumented children.

Catholic Charities in Milwaukee has offered three properties in eastern Wisconsin to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which has requested space for up to 300 unaccompanied minors.

Most Of Obamacare Subsidizes Illegal Aliens In The United States – CNBC – Split decision! Fed appeals courts disagree on Obamacare subsidies

Most Of Obamacare Subsidizes Illegal Aliens In The United States -Split decision! Fed appeals courts disagree on Obamacare subsidies

In a dramatic split decision, two federal appeals panels disagreed Tuesday on the legality of Obamacare subsidies that gave billions of dollars to help 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov.

A panel of the appeals court that covers Washington, D.C., ruled 2-1 that the subsidies were and are illegal if issued through that federal exchange, as opposed to one set up by a state.

But about two hours later, a Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panelruled 3-0 in another case that the subsidies are legal for people who buy plans on HealthCare.gov, which the federal government operates in 36 states.

The two decisions can be read here.

The circuit split could mean the cases will soon land before the U.S. Supreme Court. For now, the subsidies remain in effect.

The stakes are immense, not least because of the value of the taxpayer-funded subsidies to Obamacare enrollees in two-thirds of the US.

The subsidies are also the linchpin to Obamacare’s two mandates.

One mandate now requires people obtain affordable health insurance or pay a fine.The other, beginning in 2015, will require mid- to large-sized employers to offer such insurance to workers or pay a tax penalty.

If the subsidies aren’t legal in HealthCare.gov-served states, the employer mandate would be eliminated in those states and the individual mandate would be effectively crippled.

The subsidies to HealthCare.gov enrollees were authorized by an IRS rule that was issued after the Affordable Care Act was passed.

But plaintiffs in several federal lawsuits claim that rule is not legal because the ACA only explicitly authorizes subsidies to enrollees on state-run exchanges. The ACA does not explicitly authorize subsidies being issued to enrollees on a federal exchange, although it does discuss the creation of such an exchange as HealthCare.gov if a state doesn’t set up its own marketplace.

In the D.C. circuit case, the panel agreed with the plaintiff’s controversial claim that only state-exchange enrollees can legally be granted such subsidies.

Read MoreThe BIG threat to Obamacare you’ve never heard of

“Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states,” wrote Judge Thomas Griffth, who was joined in the majority decision by Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph on the case known as Halbig v. Burwell.

“We reach this conclusion, frankly, with reluctance. At least until states that wish to can set up their own Exchanges, our ruling will likely have significant consequences both for millions of individuals receiving tax credits through federal Exchanges and for health insurance markets more broadly.”

In his dissent, Judge Harry Edwards, called the case a “not-so-veiled attempt to gut” Obamacare, and said the ruling “portends disastrous consequences.”

Indeed, the 72-page decision threatens to unleash a cascade of effects that could seriously compromise Obamacare’s goals of compelling people to get health insurance, and helping them afford it.

“Obviously, were the DC ruling ultimately to stand, it would be a serious blow to trying to extend insurance to all Americans,” said Timothy Jost, a Washington and Lee University School of Law professor who has been influential in the debate over Obamacare and the subsidies.

However, the ruling does not and will not ultimately affect the same kinds of taxpayer-fund subsidies the federal government issued to about 2 million people who bought health plans on the 15 exchanges run by individual states and the District of Columbia.

The Obama administration said it will ask the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to reverse the panel’s decision, which for now does not have the rule of law.

In its own ruling upholding the legality of the subsidies, a three-judge panel in the Fourth Circuit said that the language detailing how those tax credits are awarded is “ambiguous and subject to multiple interpretations.”

But the panel found that it is “clear that widely available tax credits are essential to fulfilling the Act’s primary goals and that Congress was aware of their importance when drafting the bill.”

“The IRS Rule advances this understanding by ensuring that this essential component exists on a sufficiently large scale,” the Fourth Circuit panel wrote.

HealthCare.gov serves residents of the 36 states that did not create their own health insurance marketplace. By the close of open enrollment in mid-April, the federal exchange had enrolled 5.4 million of the 8 million people who signed up for Obamacare plans.

About 4.7 million people, or 86 percent of all HealthCare.gov enrollees, qualified for a subsidy to offset the cost of their coverage this year because they had low or moderate incomes. Many of those people pay less than $100 per month in premiums after their subsidies are factored in.

If upheld, the DC panel’s ruling could lead many, if not most of those subsidized customers to abandon their health plans sold on HealthCare.gov because they no longer would find them affordable without the often-lucrative tax credits. And if that coverage then is not affordable for them as defined by the Obamacare law, those people will no longer be bound by the law’s mandate to have health insurance by this year or pay a fine next year.

If there were to be a large exodus of subsidized customers from the HealthCare.gov plans, it would in turn likely lead to much higher premium rates for non-subsidized people who would remain in those plans.

Read MoreCourts could cause big Obamacare $$$ hike 

The DC panel’s ruling also threatens, in the 36 states, to destroy the Obamacare rule starting next year that all employers with 50 or more full-time workers offer affordable insurance or face fines. That’s because the rule kicks in if one of their workers buy subsidized coverage on HealthCare.gov.

The DC panel’s decision is the most serious threat to the underpinnings of the Affordable Care Act since a challenge to that law’s constitutionality was heard by the Supreme Court. The high court in 2012 upheld most of the ACA, including the mandate that most people must get insurance or pay a fine.

If the Obama administration fails to prevail in its planned challenge to Tuesday’s bombshell ruling by asking the full DC circuit to reverse the decision, it can ask the Supreme Court to reverse it. Likewise, the plaintiffs who were challenging the subsidies in the Fourth Circuit appeals court could ask that full court to reverse the decision that upheld the legality of the subsidies.

If, after a review by each of the entire circuits’ judicial lineup, there is still a split in their decisions, a Supreme Court review is effectively guaranteed. It is not clear that the high court would consider an appeal if there ends up being no split between the circuits.

Two other federal district courts are dealing with similar challenges to the subsidies, but those cases have not reached the appellate level.

“It’s in everyone’s interest for this issue to be resolved sooner than later,” said Jonathan Adler, a Case Western Reserve University law professorwho, has been a primary architect of the challenges to the subsidies.

The White House, already badly stung by the recent Supreme Court’s “Hobby Lobby” ruling that allows some businesses to avoid an Obamacare contraception-related rule for religious reasons, quickly responded to the latest blow to the Affordable Care Act.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the ruling “does not have any practical impact” on premium subsidies issued to HealthCare.gov enrollees now.”

“We are confident” that the ruling will be overturned, Earnest said. “We are confident in the legal position we have . . . the Department of Justice will litigate these claims through the federal court system.”

Earnest said “it was obvious” that Congress intended subsidies, or tax credits, to be issued to Obamacare enrollees regardless of what kind of exchange they used to buy insurance.

Justice Department spokeswoman Emily Pierce, said “We believe that this decision is incorrect, inconsistent with congressional intent, different from previous rulings, and at odds with the goal of the law: to make health care affordable no matter where people live.”

“The government will therefore immediately seek further review of the court’s decision,” Pierce said. “In the meantime, to be clear, people getting premium tax credits should know that nothing has changed, tax credits remain available.”

House Speaker John Boehner praised the DC ruling, saying it’s “further proof that President Obama’s health care law is completely unworkable. It cannot be fixed.”

Michael Cannon, one of the intellectual godfathers of the court challenge and a director at the libertarian Cato Institute, said the ruling “was validating” to him.

“This is the first opinion that looked at all of the evidence,” said Cannon, noting that the decision found the Obama administration does not have and never had the power to issue subsidies to enrollees on a federal exchange

“The Obama administration has been violating its own health care law,” Cannon said.

Read MoreWhat’s really surprising about Hobby Lobby ruling

Cannon’s claim has been met with derision by Obamacare supporters, who argue that it relies on a narrow reading, or even misreading of the law.

“The clear intent of the Affordable Care Act was to give American families access to affordable coverage no matter where they live,” said Anne Filipic, president of the Obamacare advocacy group Enroll America President.

Supporters argue that the legality of the subsidies to HealthCare.gov enrollee derives from the fact that the law explicitly anticipated the potential need to create such a federal exchange in the event that a state chose not to.

Jost, the law professor, said of Tuesday’s decision by the DC panel, “I think this is a speed bump in the way to getting uninsured Americans coverage.”

“It’s unfortunate that it happened, but it’s not going to ultimately undermine or destroy the Affordable Care Act,” Jost said.

When the ACA was passed, most supporters believed that the vast majority of states would create their own exchange. But the opposition to Obamacare of many Republican governors and state legislators lead to most states refusing to build their own marketplaces, setting the stage for the challenges to the subsidies issued for HealthCare.gov plans.

Two separate federal district court judges—in D.C. and Virginia—had rejected plaintiffs’ challenge to the subsidies. Those denials lead to the appeals in the D.C. federal circuit and in the Fourth Circuit.

Out of the more than 8 million Obamacare enrollees this year, fewer than 2.6 million people signed up in plans sold via an exchange run by a state or the District of Columbia. Of those people, 82 percent, or about 2.1 million, qualified for subsidies.

The subsidies are available to people whose incomes are between 100 percent and 400 percent of the federal poverty level. For a family of four, that’s between about $24,000 and $95,400 annually.

In a report issued Thursday, the consultancy Avalere Health said that if those subsidies were removed this year from the 4.7 million people who received them in HealthCare.gov states, their premiums would have been an average of 76 percent higher in price than what they are paying now.

Another report by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Urban Institute estimated that by 2016, about 7.3 million enrollees who would have qualified for financial assistance will be lose access to about $36.1 billion in subsidies if those court challenges succeed.

From Refugee Settlement Watch – Faux conservative lectures America on the border crisis

From Refugee Settlement Watch – Faux conservative lectures America on the border crisis

By Ann Corcoran:

“Conservative” columnist Kathyrn Jean Lopez is acting like a liberal—lecturing us in a guilt-trip laden rant on National Review Online.   I thought they were supposed to be conservative over there?

Ms. Lopez must know that the US Bishops and Catholic Charities are living off US taxpayer charity (aka our tax dollars). Disclaimer required when pimping for the Pope!

In her pontificating pieceMs Lopez tells us that the Pope just wants us to give love and understanding to the border invaders.  (Hat tip: Paul)

Capture

‘Shepherd of the leading charitable organization in the world,’ she calls him.

How about they first admit that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and Catholic Charities are receiving the majority of their funding to care for the “children” (and other refugees) from the American taxpayer through federal grants and contracts!

Here and here.

Surely the Pope knows that American taxpayers pay for their Christian charity! So he is in no position to lecture us!

And, surely Katheryn Jean Lopez isn’t living under a rock and has been following the news recently as the public is becoming increasingly aware of the greedy “religious” hands picking our pockets in the name of Christian and Jewish charity.

By the way, tell me! what is conservative about taxpayer dollars by the billions flowing to phony non-profits and “religious” charities that are completely unaccountable to the people who pay the do-gooders’ salaries?

I want the Bishops and the Pope to place a disclaimer on every guilt-tripping screed they write or is written for them by a supposed conservative like Lopez.  The disclaimer would go something like this:

The USCCB and Catholic charities are receiving (and have been for decades) the majority of their funding for their migration program as grants and contracts from the US government.

WND – All Major Media Outlets Blacked Out National Illegal Immigration Protest Day – AMERICANS PROTEST AMNESTY IN 319 CITIES

From WND – All Major Media Outlets Blacked Out National Illegal Immigration Protest Day – AMERICANS PROTEST AMNESTY IN 319 CITIES

By Leo Hohmann

Protesters on the overpass above I-240 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on Friday, July 18.

Call it the summer of discontent.

Or simmering anger.

As Central American children continue to illegally pour across the U.S. southern border, thousands of Americans poured onto the streets Friday in 319 cities and towns across the country.

A group in Birmingham, Alabama, toted signs with the slogans “No illegal immigrants period” and “You can’t fix stupid.”

Joyce Stockton, 71, from Chickasha, Oklahoma, came from 50 miles away to protest on an overpass at Interstate-240 and Pennsylvania Avenue in Oklahoma City.

She said she plans to get some rest tonight and hit the streets again Saturday either in Oklahoma City or in Lawton, which is the home of Fort Sill and one of the temporary shelters taking in illegal immigrants.

“This is the first time I’ve been involved in something like this,” Stockton told WND. “I’ve been involved in the tea party for five years, but this is my first time at a protest like this, and I am just amazed at how much support is being shown.”

She said the crowd grew as some people who didn’t know anything about the protests came and joined in spontaneously.

“People stopped and came up and said hello, and said, ‘I appreciate what you’re doing and I support you doing it and we’ll be back tomorrow.’ We’ve had a lot of honks. A lot of truckers honking, too,” Stockton said.

Rally in Chardon, Ohio

The protests will continue Saturday on highway overpasses, in state capitals, Mexican consulates and facilities receiving the illegal aliens.

The event is coordinated by a coalition of 50 organizations and three main sponsors – Americans for Legal Immigration, Overpasses for America and Make Them Listen. A list of locations and times for Saturday’s protests can be found here.

James Neighbors, founder and president of Overpasses for America, was also in Oklahoma City protesting Friday.

“It’s just Americana out here. I mean it really is,” he said.

Md. Governor, Faith Leaders Meet on Immigration

Md. Governor, Faith Leaders Meet on Immigration

By Chris Gordon NBC 4 News

Gov. Martin O’Malley met with Maryland faith leaders to discuss how to help unaccompanied immigrant children who have been coming across the border from Central America.

The meeting was held Monday in Annapolis with dozens of representatives from religious groups.

The governor said his first priority is to reunite children with families they may have in the United States. A last resort plan is to place them with foster care families through churches, providing them with clothing and English language skills.

“It’s the first that we see a governor like this calling for finding solutions together,” Gustavo Torres with Casa de Maryland said.

An estimated 50,000 children have crossed the border since October 2013.

The federal government has suggested using an army reserve center in Westminster, Md. for housing some of the children. Earlier this month, someone vandalized the center, spray painting “NO ILLEAGLES HERE.”

Since the incident, O’Malley has said he’s worried the children won’t be welcome in the area. He has also voiced concern with the president’s plan to send the children back home, saying, “That would be certain death for some.”

Last week, Catholic Charities offered to house some of the refugees at a Baltimore County campus it owns. William McCarthy with Catholic Charities declined to say how many children his organization is helping house.

“The issue is so large that no one organization can alone take care of that,” McCarthy said.

Maryland and D.C. together have the largest population from Central America found anywhere in the United States.

“As many as half of the parishioners are from Central America so this is an issue very close to our hearts, these are our children,” Fr. Jacek Orzechowski with St. Camillus in Silver Spring said.

O’Malley will meet with the religious leaders again next week.

HSM Note: This is why it is so important to donate to Non Profit Organizations like ours, because the more revenue we can generate, the more fighting we can do, we can’t do it alone, we need all Maryland Patriots to come forth and fight for what is rightfully theirs. We must not allow the Government to continue the intrusive behavior in our lives and taking our Tax Dollars to support these Illegal Alien Criminal Invaders.

‘Sundance’ at the Conservative Tree House blog has been doing great research on the federal grants for the illegal alien children.  Thanks to several of our readers for sending a post from Sunday and another one from yesterday.

What a relief to know that so many bloggers and now ‘real’ reporters too! are catching on to the raid on the federal treasury by groups completely unaccountable to US taxpayers and pretending to do their ‘good-works’ completely out of Christian charity (Hey, do you think Glen Beck has finally figured it out?).

Just a reminder: The “children” coming to a town near you are mostly teenaged boys!http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/06/23/Goodlatte-Unaccompanied-Minor-Surge-Could-Get-Worse-If-Obama-Reduces-Enforcement-Further-in-August

From Sundance’ on Sunday:

Using information within the TAGGS system for Health and Human Services we are able to identify the recipients for Grants specifically designated for “Unaccompanied Alien Children”, or UAC’s.

With that data, a few more search tools, some time and a little more research, we are able to identify the locations of facilities throughout the country where the HHS grants are being directed and the UAC’s are being transferred/housed.   There are essentially two broad types:  Residence Care, and Transitional to Foster Care Services.

From the FY 2014 HHS Grants we can identify the communities where direct HHS UAC funds have been sent.    We can identify the specific facility, or the organization supporting the foster care placement.  If you live in, or close to, one of the listed cities below, the UAC’s transfers are already in your community.

Refugee Settlement Watch – No sympathy here for Catholic Bishops as Obama screws them with executive order!

No sympathy here for Catholic Bishops as Obama screws them with executive order!

 

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 22, 2014

Baltimore Archbishop William Lori isn’t smiling now!

Sorry for my choice of words in the title, but there didn’t seem to be anything more fitting then “screw,” which is what Obama (government generally) does to those whose hands are deep into the federal treasury.

Judy just now sent me the Bishops whining and moaning press release about King Obama’s latest declaration on gender identity and sexual orientation discrimination in agencies of the federal government (which includes federal contractors!).

And, by the way, since this is an Executive Order there is no opportunity to go to Congress for relief.

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops is, of course, a huge federal contractor.

[I thought I was done with the Bishops for today when I finished my previous post a short time ago.]

Do you think they and their Catholic flock will ever get it?  Once your hands are into Caesar’s money, Caesar owns you!  Jesus knew, why don’t they?

From the USCCB (where mixed in with a lot of indignation about “religious freedom” they demonstrate their abject fear of losing their taxpayer funding):

MD already housing hundreds of illegal immigrant kids and now eyeing Timonium

MD already housing hundreds of illegal immigrant kids and now eyeing Timonium

By Ann Miller

July 23, 2014

The Baltimore Sun reported last week that Catholic Charities Maryland is seeking a federal grant of about $2 million from Health & Human Services (HHS) to house Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) at St. Vincent’s Villa, 2600 Pot Spring Road in Timonium. The grant application is due by August 5. The grant will pay for the housing of 50 residents, which would more than double the number of current residents at the facility, now at 40. St. Vincent’s website describes its services as offering “residential treatment and diagnostic facilities for children with significant emotional and behavioral challenges”.

Do these children fit that description?

Recently, two other sites were rejected in Maryland due to objections raised by local officials in Carroll County and Congressman Andy Harris for a Westminster site, and both U.S. senators and the mayor for a site in Baltimore City at an empty SSA building.

HHS seems to be taking the suggestion of Senator Mikulski, who in a CBS article last month said of the Baltimore City site, “We have told the federal government to look at other facilities in Maryland and to work with faith-based organizations that are experts in the field of child welfare”.

Is it smart to support locations in Maryland when it requires these children to be transported on public airlines and buses prior to any medical screening for infectious disease? The CDC estimates that most medical screenings occur 30-90 days after the immigrants arrive in the U.S.

Delegate Wade Kach, who represents the district just north of the proposed housing facility, has raised objections to the plan, siting reports of foreign diseases, gang recruitment, and the aiding of breaking immigration laws by the federal government. Delegate Kach has suggested that at least two public information hearings be held before a decision is made on the site. There are numerous unanswered questions.

Citizens can contact decision-makers, preferably before the August 5 grant application deadline, at the numbers below:

Archdiocese of Baltimore: 410-547-5437 or 410-547-5555
Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger: 202-225-3061
Senator Jim Brochin: 410-841-3648
Delegate Susan Aumann: 410-841-3258
Delegate Steve Lafferty: 410-841-3487
Delegate Bill Frank: 410-841-3793
Councilman Todd Huff: 410-887-3387
