I’ve told you about the Refugee Council USA many times. It is the consortium of groups that includes the nine federal resettlement contractors that pressures policy makers in Washington, DC. Back in 2015 they were clamoring for 200,000 refugees to be admitted to the US in one year!
Most recently they joined with CAIR to protest the President. And, stunningly, paid the Podesta Group $100,000 (was some of it taxpayer dollars?) to lobby certain Republican members of Congress for them!
I see now that they are following the refugee admissions numbers and prominently posting them on their website’s opening page obviously to stick it to the Trump Administration which has indeed seriously reduced the number of refugees entering the US and thus will severely put a strain on their budgets since they are paid by the head for every refugee they place in Your Town, USA.
They are probably having hissy-fits over the recent one-two-three punch they have gotten from the Trump Administration and the Supreme Court as I said in my previous post.
They must be feeling the one-two punches, actually more than two punches when you consider the reduced numbers of paying clients (aka refugees) entering the US, the US withdrawal from Obama’s UN compact, and now this.
See my archive on the Refugee Council USA here.
And, again, go here to see who is in this DC swamp lobbying group. All nine federal resettlement contractors are there.
Here, for new readers, are the nine federal resettlement contractors paid by you to place refugees in your towns and cities. These middlemen get paid by the head for their ‘charitable good works,’ so they have no incentive to ever see a reduction in numbers.
