Let’s have the debate, but cut the crap about the US Refugee Admissions Program being about saving the poor and destitute of the world, and stop denigrating any of us who don’t agree with the premise that refugee workers are vital to giant corporations.
If you have followed RRW for the last ten years you know that basic principles have emerged about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program:
~A driving force behind more refugees coming to your towns and cities is the desire by BIG MEAT, the hospitality industry, and other manufacturing companies to hire trapped refugee laborers (trapped because they have no where else to go!).
~It is maddening that the UN and the US State Department are busy (on our dime!) to supply those laborers to big business.
~You have learned that the so-called Voluntary Agencies (VOLAGs), some calling themselves “religious” charities,*** are paid by the US taxpayer to take care of the incoming work force for a few months.
~The refugee labor force (salaries are low!) is eligible for a cornucopia of public services (aka welfare) to supplement the meager wages for families that sometimes include six children. What a business model: cheap wages & welfare supplementation!
~You have surely seen the refugee industry (corporations and federal contractors) attempt to paint their mission as one of love for humanity and anyone who questions that love is mean-spirited.
~You have also learned that if you show concern for the cultural disruption of your town or city, or want to know what it all is costing you, you are a bigot. Just two days ago I posted about how Tyson Foods is transforming Garden City, Kansas.
~And, not to be forgotten, in addition to global corporations pushing for more refugee laborers, are the Dems looking for reliable voters who want the welfare gravy train to continue (Cloward & Piven).
~Finally, you have seen that Congress is not doing a thing to reform the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program, why?
Republicans: Money! Money! Money! Dems: Voters! Voters! Voters!
Why am I summarizing this today?
Because I am seeing a spate of stories about how, as the Trump admission numbers decline, big business is now out of the closet promoting the desirability of a refugee labor workforce for themselves, and I repeat:
If we want to have that discussion then let’s have it, but cut the crap about humanitarianism and more importantly stop the usual Leftist tactic of attacking those of us who do not share the globalists’ world view.
First up today is this news from Neil Munro at Breitbart about how Jeff Bezos (Amazon and the Washington Post) (hat tip: Richard). The story is from March, but I am just seeing it now:
Jeff Bezos’ WashPost Endorses Meatpackers’ Cheap-Labor Immigration Strategy
That story discusses JBS Swifts desire for cheap refugee labor. Longtime readers may remember that JBS (a Brazilian owned company) contracted with Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service to help them acquire and retain refugee workers.
Then I see that Forbes is pushing this news:
Study: Refugees Stay In Manufacturing Jobs Longer Than Other Employees
That story features our ol’ pal Hamdi Ulukaya (Mr. Chobani Yogurt) who has been busy transforming Twin Falls, Idaho and promoting his Tent Foundation—a cabal of well known global businesses promoting the movement of cheap labor around the world.
Indeed we learned that Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service was contracted to write their refugee hiring guide!
See the Tent Foundation’s partners that include both facebook and twitter.
Expect to see more stories going forward as giant global corporations wail for more refugee laborers.
*** These are the nine federal contractors that have monopolized refugee resettlement in the US, some for decades! They are the handmaidens of global corporations like Chobani Yogurt, JBS Swift, Tyson Foods, Marriot Hotels, etc….
The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare)! From most recent accounting, here.
If you are wondering, I post this list every chance I get because we have new readers daily and because I want all of you to know that for reform to be possible these nine fake non-profits have to go.
