President Trump at a signing ceremony Jan. 24. He signed another executive order Jan. 27 pausing refugee resettlement for four months until ‘extreme vetting’ can be implemented. I cannot help noticing that talk about UNITED NATIONS ECONOMIC REFUGEES turns President Trump’s spine into cooked linguini. He flat refuses to call them United Nations Refugees. He has the authority to stop all refugees, and he certainly has the authority to make economic refugees temporary rather than permanent. Trump exercises none of those options; so I cannot see him taking a lot of heat for Jell-O Republicans: Watchdogs such as Ann Corcoran at Refugee Resettlement Watch said she is concerned that after the 120-day pause expires, things will go back to business as usual. “If it’s just a four-month moratorium that is nowhere near adequate,” Corcoran told WND. “This four months has to be used as an opportunity for Congress to reform the law, the Refugee Act of 1980, otherwise we’ll just be back to square one and they will all claim they did something when in fact they didn’t.” Corcoran said the Republican-controlled Congress was “too chicken” to do anything to reform the refugee system but they are happy to let Trump take the heat. One facet of the program that could stand to be changed is allowing the United Nations to pick which refugees get sent to America. These U.N.-selected refugees tend to be more Muslim than Christian, even though Christians are the victims of a declared genocide in the Middle East. Since Trump refuses to call them United Nations Refugees maybe he can borrow a pair of balls from a true conservative and call them Jimmy Carter Refugees (Carter is the guy that Ronald Reagan beat like a drum.): Leading the charge against Trump’s executive orders Friday were the nine VOLAGs, which get paid by the government for every refugee they resettle in America — a conflict of interest none of them disclosed in their press releases. These VOLAGs include the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, the evangelical group World Relief, Church World Services, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Episcopal Migration Ministries, the International Rescue Committee, and the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants. The federal government pays these agencies $2,050 for every refugee they resettle in the U.S., and they’ve resettled more than 3 million since the Refugee Act of 1980 was signed by President Jimmy Carter. Establishment in full meltdown over Trump refugee orders Posted By Leo Hohmann On 01/27/2017 @ 8:54 pm Establishment in full meltdown over Trump refugee orders Allowing the Refugee Act of 1980 to stand is the same as being governed by the very people who gave the country open-borders and violent Muslims. A basket full of immigration laws need to be repealed. Unfortunately, repeal is anathema to the federal government because repeal admits to a stupid mistake. The 18th Amendment is the only constitutional amendment ever repealed. The laws passed for refugees and immigrants are worse than the 18th Amendment. Manufacturers build planned obsolescence into their products. Legislators are too stupid to see that obsolescence is automatically built-in to every touchy-feely law. The tragedy is that refusing to repeal bad laws when the evidence for repeal is clear kills countries and empires. On the plus side, repealing bad laws is a lot easier than repealing a constitutional amendment. Jell-O is the only thing that stands in the way. Finally, United Nations Refugees are economic refugees —— economic for churches and tax dollar hustlers irrespective of the First Amendment.
