A recent exposé uncovered that bribes have been driving the placement of refugees by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and further research from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) shows the immense human costs borne by the United States due to this systemic corruption.
The NBC News report demonstrated that the refugee industry, particularly in the countries of Kenya, Uganda, Yemen, Ethiopia, and Libya, were rife with corruption and bribery. CIS researcher Nayla Rush examined at the data pertaining to refugee resettlement in the U.S. from those countries.
Her findings were troubling:
- In FY 2019, the United States resettled 2,756 refugees from the processing centers in Kenya, Uganda, Yemen, Ethiopia, and Libya.
- A total of 1,914 UNHCR staff members work at the refugee processing centers, of whom 79 percent (1,506) are national staff and 21 percent (408) international staff.
- The average Transparency International average corruption score in 2018 for the five countries was 23.6/100 (the lower the number the more corrupt). The average ranking of these five among the 180 ranked countries was 150.6 out of 180 (180 being the most corrupt country in the world — Somalia). For comparison, the United States had a score of 71/100 and ranked 22nd out of 180 countries.
- The United States is the top funder of UNHCR activities in four of the five countries.
Rush also found that the agencies that receive federal cash to conduct this glorified human trafficking operation – organizations such as the Church World Service, the International Rescue Committee, and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society – are likely putting national security at risk in order to line their own coffers.
These organizations, called resettlement support centers (RSCs), conduct interviews to screen resettlement applicants, prepare cases on their behalf, and gather intel for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officers to ultimately use in deciding cases. A review by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) showed a stunning amount of corruption here as well.
The GAO found many cases of staff fraud and applicant fraud, as well as inadequate oversight for the RSCs. After analyzing 70 different Refugee Affairs Division (RAD) trip reports with feedback on RSC behavior, only 14 percent of the reports showed that RSC case preparations were adequate. An astounding 64 percent of reports contained errors and other major concerns.
The UNHCR also hires locals from these third-world countries who are more likely to be impoverished and more apt to accept bribes. They employ 16,765 staff members in 138 countries, most of which are field workers from areas close to where they are serving. There are a total of 1,914 UNHCR staff members employed from the countries identified by the report as particularly corrupt problem areas.
Taxpayer funds have been used for the resettlement of 638 Ethiopians, 395 Kenyans, and 1,723 Ugandans into the U.S. during fiscal year 2019. It is impossible to know how many of these people bribed their way into the country, and where that illicit cash came from.
“UNHCR staff are, in a way, deciding not only who can move to the United States, they are also choosing who will have the opportunity to become an American,” Rush said in her conclusion. “Given such high stakes, and the reports of abuses, the U.S. government might want to reconsider the whole resettlement referral system put in place by UNHCR.”
The U.S. could take it one step further and just de-fund and disband the United Nations completely. Until that happens, this globalist agency and its many tentacles will continue chipping away at what’s left of the U.S. as well as the last remnants of Western Civilization.

Tommy Tuberville Says “We Can’t Worry About China Right Now”
Even though they allowed the disease to spread.
Former football coach and Alabama US Senate candidate Tommy Tuberville said that “we can’t worry about China right now” in a radio appearance with Talk 99.5’s “Matt and Aunie Show on Thursday.
When asked by hosts about the implications of the global coronavirus epidemic on the United States’ relationship with China, Tuberville said, “Well, we can’t worry about China right now. We’ve gotta worry about Alabama and this country.”
Tuberville is currently running to represent Alabama in the United States Senate, although he’s been registered as a Florida voter in the past.
His comments on China policy will leave many Americans concerned with the nation’s role in the coronavirus epidemic unsatisfied. Certainly, containing the epidemic in this country is the priority, but a wide range of conservatives and China hawks have already begun to discuss the need to fundamentally reevaluate the United States’ relationship with China. The damage already inflicted upon American society and the global economy does present a pressing case that such a question is in fact urgent.
Tuberville is running for Senator, not Governor. He could be forgiven if he was running for an office not entrusted with high-level foreign policy responsibilities, but Senators in the coming months and years will be entrusted with developing China policy that recognizes the authoritarian communist nation’s role in allowing and covering up the global coronavirus epidemic.
Contrasting in stark fashion, Tuberville’s opponent for the Republican nomination for US Senate in Alabama, Jeff Sessions, has called for a congressional select committee to investigate China’s role in covering up the dangers posed to the world by the coronavirus, the virus’ origin in Wuhan, and potentially lying about the casualties incurred as a result of the disease in China.
I am calling today for Congress to immediately establish a Select Committee on China to lead the investigation. This Select Committee should be given the authority to wield the full investigative powers, including the power to compel witnesses, of the United States Congress.
— Jeff Sessions (@jeffsessions) April 1, 2020
If Alabama voters want a Republican Senator who is going to be tough on China, it doesn’t look like Tommy Tuberville is up to task.
