America has been flooded with immigrants. We cannot continue receiving 100,000 to 150,000 illegal immigrants.
Regardless of how sorry you feel for the hurting people from other countries, how many people can we absorb into our schools? How many can we absorb into our welfare system? How many Americans who have been here for years can afford to lose his or her job to someone who is willing to come and work for slave wages?
How many refugees can we bring into our country? Since the 1980 Refugee Act, we have averaged 98,000 refugees per year.
These nonprofit organizations make millions of dollars every year by bringing anybody they can into this country: U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigrant Aid Society, International Rescue Committee, World Relief Corporation, Immigrant and Refugee Services of America, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Church World Service, Domestic and Foreign Missionary Service of the Episcopal Church of the USA, and the Ethiopian Community Development Center.
Below are some of the sources of income for these Voluntary Agencies, or VOLAG:
$1,850 per refugee (including children) from the State Department.
Up to $2,200 per refugee by participating in a U.S. Department of Health Human Services program known as Matching Grant. To get the $2,200, VOLAG need only show it spent $200 and gave away $800 worth of donated clothes, furniture or cars.
The U.S. government pays all VOLAG expenses and overhead in the Washington, DC headquarters.
For their refugee programs, VOLAG collects money from all federal grant programs: "Marriage Initiative,” "Faith-based,” "Ownership Society,” etc., as well as from various state and local grants.
When you start multiplying 70,000 to 100,000 refugees times even just $1,000, you come up with a nice profit. VOLAG gets millions of dollars of other support from foundations and other nonprofits and many community volunteers who help them with assimilating refugees into their community.
The nonprofit agencies only have to spend four months with the refugee until they are free to be anywhere in the United States doing whatever they want to do.
The refugee program is a multi-million-dollar moneymaker to these nine nonprofits. Catholic Charities is the largest group and, surprisingly, they have been bringing in thousands of Muslims who in turn have been buying their old churches and turning them into mosques.
So let's get this straight: Our federal tax dollars are funneled into a Catholic charity, a Lutheran charity and seven other charities. This money is supposed to be used to bring 70,000 to 100,000 refugees to America. This number changes year to year. These people come from all parts of the world.
Federal programs available to refugees include:
Temporary Assistance for Needy Families
Supplemental Security Income
Social Security Disability Insurance
Administration on Developmental Disabilities (direct services only)
Child Care and Development Fund
Independent Living Program
Job Opportunities for Low Income Individuals
Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program
Postsecondary Education Loans and Grants
Refugee Assistance Programs
Title IV Foster Care and Adoption Assistance Payments (if parents are qualified immigrants)
Title XX Social Services Block Grant Funds
The numbers of people coming to your state are not exactly proportionate. Delaware receives hardly any refugees. Other states, like Florida, New York, Texas, Maryland and Kentucky, have been bombarded with refugees.
How many thousands can any one city and state take on? Since 1980, we have taken in over 3 million refugees. The additional cost to the welfare system is between $10 billion and $20 billion.
There must be major curtailing of this program until we can get this nation on its feet.
Americans hope that Congress and President Trump will help us.
Will jobs come back to America?
Will Congress cut the corporate tax rate and make it more affordable for corporations to operate in this country?
We need jobs. Our children are graduating high school and college every year. They want to move on with their lives and have a life. We need to help them.
Our veterans struggle with employment, housing and medical care.
Our military is surviving in old beat up barracks. They often do not even have air conditioning in the summer and have decrepit furnace systems in the winter. They are driving old equipment that mechanics work on every day to keep running.
Over the years, our government has lessened the numbers of our service members, making it more difficult for soldiers to advance.
We can only hope our elected leaders will work to help this nation and preserve an America that our grandchildren might wake up to enjoy.
