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.

DESPERATION: Never Trumpers Float Romney/Bloomberg as ‘the Unity Ticket America Deserves’
How pathetic are these guys?
The “Never Trump” brain trust over at The Bulwark has unveiled their antidote to stop the President they hate so much in this year’s election: a “unity ticket” consisting of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) as a presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate.
Author Neal Simon made the argument that this potential third-party ticket would appeal to independents in an op/ed published on Monday.
“Senator Romney’s entrance into the presidential race wouldn’t just give the vital center of the electorate a home—it would stand a chance to break a system that is stacked against independents and third party candidates,” Simon argued.
He compared Romney’s potential to that of French President Emmanuel Macron, the reviled ruler who has populist Yellow Vest protesters rioting against his unpopular style of governance every weekend.
“And as Emmanuel Macron showed in France, standing up a new party and winning a presidential election in one motion is not impossible,” Simon wrote.
Simon posited that by putting Bloomberg on his ticket as Vice President, Romney could essentially buy the election, which is what Bloomberg is basically trying to do right now with his run for the Democratic presidential nomination.
“A Romney-Bloomberg ticket would be a first in modern American politics: A bipartisan unity ticket running under the banner of an independent third party,” he wrote.
Simon’s premise is predicated off of an assumption that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) will win the Democrat presidential nomination. He believes that populism taking over the Republican and Democrat parties would open the door for a centrist revolution that could be led by Romney and Bloomberg.
“It would give both disgruntled Republicans who feel their party has become lost in Trump’s personality cult and Democrats who feel their party is lurching too far left towards a socialist revolution a voice on the ballot that reflects a popular idea of how the country should be run,” he concluded.
Simon, who was a failed independent candidate in the state of Maryland for the U.S. Senate in 2018, recently published a book titled, “Contract to Unite America: Ten Reforms to Reclaim Our Republic.” He is using the words of George Washington in his manifesto to defeat the new age of populist politics and return to the days of old.
“Capitalizing on personal insight derived from Simon’s political campaign along with extensive research, Contract to Unite America provides specific, practical solutions for an improved government and a better tomorrow,” Simon’s book description reads.
Unfortunately for Simon and the “Bulwark” neocons, the public has had enough of status quo politicians and does not want to return to the George W. Bush era. The dream ticket of Romney/Bloomberg is not likely to come to fruition.
