Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch reported on U.S. District Judge Peter Messitte’s recent ruling to keep the Trump administration from reforming its refugee program.
Three faith-based national resettlement agencies — HIAS Inc., Church World Service Inc., and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service— requested that Messite issue the preliminary injunction.
Mark Hetfield, the CEO of HIA said that it is “unkind and un-American to ban refugees from your states and towns” in response to Trump issuing an executive order that gives states a say in whether they will accept refugees or not. He celebrated Messitte’s ruling.
Back in September Trump issued the executive order declaring that the federal government would only resettle refugees if states and local governments had agreed to do so. This move gave states de facto veto power over whether they would resettle refugees. The government is looking to appeal the injunction order.
“State and local governments are best positioned to know the resources and capacities they may or may not have available to devote to sustainable resettlement, which maximizes the likelihood refugees placed in the area will become self-sufficient and free from long-term dependence on public assistance,” the order declared.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently announced that Texas would lead the way in opting out of refugee resettlement. He stated that “Texas has carried more than its share in assisting the refugee resettlement process” and that it “continues to have to deal with the consequences of an immigration system that Congress has failed to fix.”
However, opponents of this order believe it is illegal and unconstitutional. Additionally, they contend that it would ruin the refugee program and have “disastrous consequences not only for Plaintiffs and eligible refugees but for the image of the United States as a beacon of liberty,” according to language in the ruling.
On the other hand, the Trump administration believes the order is lawful and sustains that because the president has the power to determine how many refugees will be resettled he also has the ability to mandate whether states have the authority to decide whether they want them or not.
Trump announced that the U.S. would bring in only 18,000 refugees for the fiscal year of 2020. This is a significant reduction from the limit of 110,000 former President Barack Obama set back in 2016
Corcoran had choice words for contractors who are promoting refugee resettlement. She believes that nine contractors, specifically, “are the heart of America’s Open Borders movement and thus there can never be long-lasting reform of US immigration policy when these nine un-elected phony non-profits are paid by the taxpayers to work as community organizers pushing an open borders agenda.”
She listed the following nine contractors as the main culprits behind the recent refugee resettlement mania:
- Church World Service (CWS)
- Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC) (secular)
- Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM)
- Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS)
- International Rescue Committee (IRC) (secular)
- US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) (secular)
- Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services (LIRS)
- United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)
- World Relief Corporation (WR)

Boy Scouts File for Bankruptcy as a Result of Declining Membership and Sexual Abuse Lawsuits
On Tuesday, February 18, 2020, The Boy Scouts of America filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in order to stay running as thousands of sexual abuse claims from former members pile up against the youth organization in the courts.
The organization initiated its bankruptcy proceedings in Delaware on Tuesday morning, per court documents. Consequently, all civil suits filed against the youth organization will be suspended, according to a CNN report.
The organization will likely still have to pay victims throughout the bankruptcy proceedings, but it will not have to go through the arduous jury trial process in certain states.
.“The BSA cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting. We are outraged that there have been times when individuals took advantage of our programs to harm innocent children,” Roger Mosby, the Boy Scouts’ president and chief executive officer, announced in a statement Tuesday.
“While we know nothing can undo the tragic abuse that victims suffered, we believe the Chapter 11 process — with the proposed Trust structure — will provide equitable compensation to all victims while maintaining the BSA’s important mission,” he continued.
Lawyers informed the Post that the Boy Scouts would have to make the bankruptcy go public in order to reach as many victims as possible.
