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.
Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS
They’re from South Carolina and Texas.
The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.
The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.
“We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.”
They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.
Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.
These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
