Resettled Migrants are Having Hard Time Getting Coronavirus Updates, Adding to Pandemic Concerns

The refugee resettlement program is worsening the coronavirus pandemic.

Published

Refugees resettled in the United States from the third world are having a hard time receiving coronavirus updates, blaming the language gap as well as a lack of social services as society is increasingly locked down amidst the panic.

Because of the federally-funded refugee resettlement program, there are 200 different languages that are spoken in the state of Ohio alone. Immigrant advocates are attempting to disseminate information related to this virus to all of these different cultures in order to prevent its spread.

“There’s an extra layer of fear if you don’t speak the language,” said Columbus community activist Houleye Thiam, who serves as president of the Mauritanian Network for Human Rights in the U.S. “You can watch the governor but you can’t understand him; that’s a whole different kind of fear and uneasiness and feeling out of place.”

Columbus has a community of roughly 3,000 Mauritanians. Thiam is worried that bad information and rumors are running rampant through his community, and he is trying to get the best tips to them on how to avoid the spread of the virus.

“The biggest challenge is misinformation.” Thiam said.

The Ohio Department of Health is being forced to devote precious resources to getting coronavirus information out to refugees and foreigners in different languages, distracting from an already daunting task of keeping the native-born U.S. public safe throughout the crisis.

Even the advocates admit that it is an uphill battle to keep these different immigrant communities informed, as the strain of diversity and multiculturalism takes its toll on society.

“Access to information for those with limited English is a challenge and we are working to provide resources,” wrote Lilly Cavanaugh, who works as executive director of the Ohio Latino Affairs Commission.

US Together, a resettlement agency that operates in Ohio, has closed down their doors but is attempting to work with refugees remotely to inform them with up-to-date information about the virus. The Community Refugee and Immigration Services (CRIS) has a flier for coronavirus in 10 languages, but that pales in comparison to what they would need to inform the various third-world communities that they are servicing.

“This is ever evolving. These are pretty basic documents,” wrote CRIS executive director Angie Plummer in an email. “Nothing replaces reaching out by phone directly.”

US Together is denying that the refugee resettlement program adds an additional strain during times of crisis, such as the coronavirus pandemic that is ongoing.

“Living and working near resettled refugees does NOT put any person at greater risk of contracting COVID-19. Suggesting that migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers bring or spread diseases is a long-standing xenophobic trope that has been continually proven to be factually inaccurate,” they wrote in a blog post to address concerns.

That may be the line that the refugee industry is peddling, but it is clear that the influx of refugees resettled with taxpayer dollars is adding additional strain on a system that is already dangerously close to collapse due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic

Another Republican governor with courage.

Published

on

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.

According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.

“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”

Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”

“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.

Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.

“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.

Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.

“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.

Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:

Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…

This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.

Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.

“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.

“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.

“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.

The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
