    Um yes, that is what you do for refugees - the alternative of abandoning them to fend for themselves in a strange land as soon as they step of the plane is daft and just asking for the kind of woes seen in Europe.

    My country spends something like NZ$100 million to resettle 1500 or so refugees per year (that money spread over several years though) - teaching them how to live here, what our values are and so forth.
    I'm just saying I think this is too broad of a brush. I'm thinking of the millions of immigrants who came to America without ANY assistance from the government.

      Yup, millions figured it out on their own or with community help.

        Three days after the killer Islamic State attack on a Berlin Christmas market and 30 days before President-elect Trump can start any program to target and Muslims, the Obama administration has quietly decided to kill a 9/11 era program requiring the registration and fingerprinting of mostly Arab and Muslim visitors and immigrants.

        A notice scheduled to be published in Friday's Federal Register said the Department of Homeland Security will officially end the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System, or NSEERS.

        The decision came after several groups urged the administration to take the program off the books.


        The Obama administration is keeping details about how it is vetting Syrian refugees for terrorism ties classified, drawing concerns from Congress that the administration is using a flawed screening process that expedites the timeframe needed to fully vet foreign individuals, according to new congressional communications obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

        Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.) is petitioning the Obama administration to publicly disclose the vetting process and explain how officials can ensure in an expedited timeframe that Syrians admitted into the United States do not have ties to terrorism, according to a letter sent by Duffy to the White House.

        The Obama administration has repeatedly shortened the timeframe allocated to vet these refugees for terrorism, with checks now taking less than three months despite warnings from security officials who have asked for up to two years to perform the necessary background checks.
        This also concerns me. Why the secrecy?

          ​Yes, just what we need here, all these problems that most muslim countries have, perfect:/

          Muslims and Muslim sympathizers protested Donald Trump today in New York’s Times Square. Chelsea Clinton boasted about being there with her daughter, Charlotte. Hamas darling, Linda Sarsour was also there spreading hysteria and propaganda about President Donald Trump.

          In Sarsour’s speech, she reminded people about the executive order that Democratic President FDR passed which put Japanese Americans in internment camps implying that Muslims and minorities could possibly suffer the same fate under a Trump presidency.

            Follow up to the crime in Idaho against a little girl which happend a year back...make sure you are sitting down.


            The travesty of justice in Idaho is now complete. In the summer of 2016, a 5-year-old girl was orally and anally raped and urinated upon by three Muslim migrant boys in Twin Falls, Idaho. Since then, instead of getting justice, the victim’s family has been abused by law enforcement and governing authorities as if they were the criminals – because what happened to their little girl contradicts the politically correct narrative about Muslim migrants. On Tuesday, the perpetrators were sentenced, and the final injustice was done to this poor girl.

            The injustice began in the proceedings at the Snake River Juvenile Detention Center in Twin Falls when Judge Thomas Borreson of Idaho’s 5th Judicial District ordered the little victim’s parents to say nothing to anyone – ever – about what was said in the courtroom Tuesday, or to disclose the sentence that he gave to the savage attackers. He did allow them to say that they were unhappy with the sentencing, but threatened to jail them for contempt of court if they disclosed why they were unhappy with it.

              After declaring that Christians have “been horribly treated” by the refugee program under former President Barack Obama, President Donald Trump has reversed the Obama administration’s disgraceful discrimination against Christian refugees. According to a Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. State Department refugee data, during the period from January 21, 2017 - President Trump’s first full day in office - through June 30, “9,598 Christian refugees arrived in the U.S., compared with 7,250 Muslim refugees. Christians made up 50% of all refugee arrivals in this period, compared with 38% who are Muslim.”

              From April through June 2017, Iraq was “the only Muslim-majority nation among the top six origin countries.” The number of Syrian refugees admitted to the U.S. from January 21, 2017 through June 30, 2017 was 1779. Comparing the number of refugee admissions from Syria for the entire month of January with the entire month of February 2017, the number dropped by nearly half. By June 2017, the number of refugees admitted from Syria was about 26 percent of the already low number of 673 admitted in February.

                Of course not all are refugees/immigrants, many convert here in the USA.


                There are about 3.35 million Muslims in the United States right now, according to recent Pew Research Center’s Factank figures.
                But by 2050, that particular population is projected to grow — from about 1 percent of the U.S. population to about 2.1 percent. If it does, that means America will be home to more Muslims than Jews.

                Just something to think about, post New York City terror attack — a terror attack that we now know was committed by a radicalized Muslim who professed allegiance to ISIS.

                      A federal court this week ordered the administration to pay more than $1 million in fees to lawyers who won a major case forcing the federal government to treat illegal immigrant children better while in U.S. care.

                      The award was a spanking for the Obama administration, which had fought and lost in court, trying to defend the facilities that held the children while in immigration custody.

                      U.S. District Judge Dolly M. Gee said that because the Obama administration’s position had been so overwhelmingly wrong, under the law the government should be forced to pay the costs of the lawyers who won the case.

                      This is a gem, right here...


                      A Colorado preschool says it’s shutting its doors after the church where it rented space declared itself a sanctuary for illegal immigrants, leaving parents of the toddlers miffed.

                      The Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder decided last month that it would provide living space to an illegal immigrant as part of its religious duties, spurring parents to start pulling their kids from the preschool that rented space from the church.

                      The student flight was bad enough that the school said it will shut down at the end of this month.

                        The father of a young man killed by an illegal immigrant said the jury that acquitted Jose Ines Garcia Zarate was full of "left-wing nutjobs."

                        Jamiel Shaw Sr, whose son Jamiel was shot while walking down the street in 2008, said the "activist" jury exonerated Zarate as a swipe at President Donald Trump.

                        "I expected [the verdict]," he said. "I remember telling people he's going to walk."

                        Out of control immigration & legal system, in regards to NON-Citizens here without a Passport or Visa! (good thing this didn't happen to one of your family members)


                        Sergio Jose Martinez, 31, was sentenced to 35 years in prison on Friday
                        • He sexually assaulted a women in her home and attacked another in a parking lot
                        • Both were on the same July day, a week after he was released from jail
                        • He had been there for interfering with police; he'd also been deported 20 times
                        • Martinez pleaded guilty to 10 counts including sodomy and sexual assault

                          Federal Homeland Security agents raided 20 alleged “maternity hotels” in Southern California where pregnant Chinese women pay tens of thousands of dollars to live to ensure a “made in America” baby, reports said.

                          The feds raided locations in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties on Tuesday, targeting three competing birth-tourism schemes, officials told NBC News, which was on the scene of one of the raids.
                          One of the properties was the ultra-deluxe Carlyle building in Irvine, California, which housed pregnant women and new moms for fees ranging between $40,000 and $80,000 to ensure their children would have American citizenship, the outlet reported


                          U.S. immigration agents descended on dozens of 7-Eleven stores before dawn Wednesday to open employment audits and interview workers in what officials described as the largest operation against an employer under Donald Trump's presidency.Agents targeted about 100 stores nationwide, broadening an investigation that began with a 4-year-old case against a franchisee on New York's Long Island. The audits could lead to criminal charges or fines over the stores' hiring practices.

                          The action appears to open a new front in Trump's sharp expansion of immigration enforcement, which has already brought a 40 percent increase in deportation arrests and plans to spend billions of dollars on a border wall with Mexico. Hardliners have been pressing for a tougher stance on employers.

                            There’s never been much dispute over whether Luis Bracamontes shot and killed two Sacramento-area deputies in October 2014.

                            He has repeatedly admitted to it in court hearings, and at the start of his trial Tuesday his own lawyer essentially convicted the illegal immigrant of killing Sacramento sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer sheriff’s Deputy Michael Davis Jr. in a daylong spree of violence that started in a Motel 6 parking lot near Arden Fair Mall.

                            “Let me be clear and up front,” public defender Jeffrey Barbour told the jury hearing his case. “Mr. Bracamontes is responsible for the death of Deputy Danny Oliver and Detective Michael Davis

                                Age, income, ethnicity: Latest Census data reveals all facets of O.C.


                                Amid the expensive homes and sparkling ocean views that helped make Orange County famous, consider these stereotype-smashing facts: Nearly 9 percent of us 25 or older never passed the ninth grade. Another 18 percent never made it out of high school.
                                Thirty-one percent of our county’s 3.05 million residents were born in another country. Nearly half of us speak a language other than English at home. And more than a third of us rent apartments rather than fulfill the American dream of home ownership.
                                Those data, released this month by the U.S. Census Bureau, are in stark contrast with our national reputation as a mecca for conservative politics, glamorous surfers and privileged housewives.
                                “By and large, people’s impressions of a place are about 20 years out of date,” said Dowell Myers, professor of urban planning and demography at the USC Price School of Public Policy. “They remember the trends that were happening and assume they’re still going on.”
                                The statistics are included in the American Community Survey, an oftentimes astonishing picture of who our neighbors are, how they’re living and what the future of our county might be. The numbers reflect a nationwide trend of slower birth rates, financially struggling young adults and a slowdown in immigration, especially to pricey California and Orange County, Myers said.
