Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has been the only governor throughout the country with the backbone to reject third-world refugees being resettled into his state, and he has refused to budge on the issue even after being attacked by powerful special interest groups.
“I am putting my citizens first. We have challenges in the state of Texas that must be addressed by these very same nonprofit organizations,” Abbott said during an appearance on “Fox and Friends” last week.
“We have a growing homeless population in the state of Texas, and I refuse to allow the state of Texas to go down the same pathway of what we’ve seen in California,” he added.
Abbott’s “Texas First” comments caused Krish O’Mara Vignarajah, president of the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), to admit that federal refugee resettlement funds cannot be diverted to help Americans. The money is specifically earmarked to destroy the demographics of the United States, and those dollars are essentially being stolen from needy Americans like veterans or the homeless.
“The federal funding that nonprofit resettlement agencies administer limits its use so it can only be spent through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program,” she said in an email response to the Texas Tribune.
“Just as funding for the many federal programs meant to alleviate homelessness cannot be reallocated to refugee programing, resettlement funding cannot simply be reallocated to other problem areas such as homelessness – or even services for asylum seekers,” she added.
Abbott spokesman John Wittman struck back at Vignarajah for her comments, claiming that she is making a “straw man argument” to obfuscate the issue at hand.
“Governor Abbott knows exactly how these programs work and he did not suggest the straw man argument as some non-profits are making. They are suggesting that they can walk and chew gum at the same time by taking taxpayer dollars to help refugees while also helping the homeless with different funds, The Governor’s point is not money; it is effort,” Wittman said in an email to the Tribune.
“However much these nonprofit organizations are helping with the homeless issue, the fact remains that the homeless remain significantly underserved. To solve homelessness, Texas needs every nonprofit organization’s focus to be on the homeless, not how much money they receive from the federal government,” he added.
Vignarajah also admitted that refugees can absorb state-level welfare after they are trafficked into the U.S. from foreign lands at taxpayer expense.
“Like any other tax-paying resident of a state, refugees may be eligible for additional state benefits such as nutritional or housing assistance, but this depends on the eligibility requirements of each state, of course,” she said.
The federal records show that LIRS has received over $54 million annually during every fiscal year going back to 2014. Refugee industry whistleblower Ann Corcoran explains that LIRS has kept their federal welfare scam lucrative during the Trump administration by apparently exploiting so-called Unaccompanied Alien Children grants.
“84% of the ‘children’ crossing the border without a parent are above the age of 13. Two thirds of the teens are males,” Corcoran explained.
Despite the fact that organizations like LIRS receives tens of millions of dollars annually to help traffic third-world migrants into America, bleeding heart liberals continue to defend the lurid program based on humanitarian reasons.
“We’re not talking about people coming across the border. We’re talking about people seeking refuge from persecution. They have already been received by the U.S. They’ve been vetted, they’ve been screened and accepted. It’s just a mater of where they get resettled in the U.S.,” said Troy Greisen, director of World Relief North Texas, who is critical of Gov. Abbott’s policy.
Abbott’s stance against the refugee trafficking industry ultimately hinges on a court case filed by the pro-migrant welfare whore organizations to stop President Trump’s executive order that makes participation in the program voluntary.
Mitch McConnell Preparing Exit Strategies, Potential Successors in Advance of Possible Retirement
Will Mitch retire?
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly created a shortlist of potential successors, with the establishment Republican considering a possible retirement before his term ends. McConnell was reelected to another Senate term in 2020, and the Intercept broke the news of his retirement considerations on Thursday.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is reportedly McConnell’s first pick for his successor. Former UN Ambassador Kelly Craft and Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams are also possible replacements. McConnell, 79, has served as a Kentucky Senator since 1985.
Kentucky law currently would allow Governor Andy Beshear- a Democrat- to appoint McConnell’s successor if he retired. However, McConnell is pushing for the Republican state legislature to pass reforms allowing them to select replacements for Senators who have resigned. McConnell’s quiet boosting of legislative reforms to appoint interim Senators led to the reports of his potential retirement, although it’s unclear when he plans to leave the picture.
McConnell largely alienated the Republican Party with a forceful denunciation of former President Donald Trump during the second sham impeachment trial targeting the President, although he declined to vote to convict the President on the basis of legality. A Republican candidate in the mold of McConnell’s 20th century style would have a difficult time winning a Kentucky GOP primary, and McConnell’s appointed pick may start off in such an election with a considerable handicap. In addition, the legacy Senator remains popular in Kentucky, although at least one county party censured him for his betrayal of Trump in January.
