President Trump Crushes Refugee Scam via Executive Order
Illegal immigration remains the number one concern of Americans heading into the 2020 election, but if you had to pick the second-most pressing issue, it would have to be the United Nations refugee scam.
This insidious program that escaped federal control decades ago has been infuriating Americans who have watched as their once-beautiful local communities have been transformed into shantytowns by massive waves of Third World refugees, through a policy they were never allowed to vote on.
President Trump has now fulfilled yet another campaign promise by demolishing the refugee scam through an executive order. Trump’s idea was the most American-inspired solution possible: Local control.
The problems with the UN’s administration of refugee admissions into the United States only started to sneak their way into the national conversation during Barack Obama’s second term in office. But the results of the UN’s perfidy were obvious in many local communities: The refugees were primarily coming from belligerent, anti-American Islamic countries – and they had actually been flooding into the country since 9/11. This was intentional on the part of the UN.
Former Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) began hearing complaints from constituents in his district during the waning months of the Obama administration. South Carolinians were alarmed that hundreds of Syrian refugees were going to be resettled in their communities.
As the chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee that is supposed to have oversight of refugee resettlement, Gowdy was stunned by the answers he received from federal employees.
Who authorized the plan to resettle fighting-aged Syrian males into South Carolina? No one knew. How many were they sending? No one knew. Who was in charge of the program that would be able to answer questions? No one knew.
Do the state or local governments get any say in whether or not they want to accept Syrian refugees? No, of course not. Well, why not? Because it’s never been done that way.
It was mindboggling, infuriating and incredibly revealing. No one in America was really “in charge” of refugee resettlement, and no one in the federal government had any answers about how the program was administered. And of course, no living person could remember how the program was put in place and no one in South Carolina had ever voted in favor of resettling refugees in that state.
It’s the same situation in 49 of our 50 states today. Wyoming is the only state in the Republic that does not allow the UN to resettle refugees within its borders.
The “refugees” often show up at our southern border with no English skills. Many have never seen indoor plumbing.
European countries famously had to install pictures in public restrooms to demonstrate how to use toilets, because many of the African newcomers who began arriving during the great migration in 2015 had never seen one.
The pictures had to be installed because the refugees kept defecating on the toilet lids and leaving it there for someone else to clean up.
The point is that these unskilled people from the Third World require cradle-to-grave welfare payments just to survive in our modern economy. This has strained state and local budgets to the breaking point as the United Nations flood small communities with hundreds of “refugees” at a time.
A wave of 350 Congolese nationals crossed our southern border earlier this year. San Antonio said it couldn’t take them, so it tried to dump the influx in Portland, Maine. P
ortland responded by begging San Antonio not to send them. Every available shelter in Portland was already filled to the gills with African refugees. Where are they now? Nobody knows, but they were obviously dumped somewhere.
Trump’s executive order finally puts a stop to this ludicrous program by establishing a dual-layer power of veto over accepting refugees. Before a new batch of refugees can be resettled in a community, both the state and local governments must confirm consent – in writing – to the State Department.
If a liberal state government wants to resettle refugees, it will have to get permission from a local community and vice versa.
Imagine that: Democracy! If a local community no longer wants to bear the extreme financial burden of caring for hundreds of refugees, it won’t have to. By giving local communities veto power, this could, effectively, reduce refugee admissions to near zero.
As the massive influx of Congolese illegal aliens posing as refugees demonstrated this past summer, everyone wants to welcome refugees into the United States – just as long as it’s in someone else’s community.
