The Refugee Resettlement Hustle

Aug 7, 2017 – Last night at the St. Cloud City Council meeting, residents spoke out on the issue of the sustainability of St. Cloud, MN due to the massive refugee resettlement that has taken place since 2003.

This is about economics and the bottom line is the city council, the federal government & the county commissioners aren’t meeting their obligations of providing transparency.and working for the people of St. Cloud.  People must understand that it isn’t the function of the U.S. Government at any level to secure the freedom and we’ll-being of the world. That duty is owed only to the legal citizens of the United States.

 

THIS is all about LOCAL…

local people affected
local taxes being paid
local schools
local crime rates,
local IMPACT…

Below is a summary from a St. Cloud patriot

Tonight the St. Cloud City Council members made a step forward to an open conversation. Granted a 3-4 vote was not a victory but one more council member decided to vote yes. This is a positive step forward.

We should all understand that we have authority to halt the Refugee Resettlement program in St. Cloud MN, by understanding law and educating those in authority.

8 U.S.C. § 1522(a)(2)(A)  gives city officials the authority to halt or at least have significant influence in the resettlement process. Lutheran Social Services (LSS) understands this authority and limits the city officials from invites, or by not inviting them at all to the quarterly abstract meetings.

Please read the link below and understand your elected city officials have a voice in the Refugee Resettlement process. yet, city officials may have their own views of understanding Federal, state or local laws.  Educate them.  As a team we must educate these officials. E-mail all city Council members. Show them how much you know about this process. City Council member are elected officials, yet, they may be naive to State and Federal codes.

Jeff Johnson and George Hontos and one other stood tall tonight giving voice to their constituents…Imagine a group of citizens with more education, more passion, and more patriotism giving voice from the bow.  Francis Scott Key was and is that example of Patriotism.

Give thanks to those who spoke and will speak.  Great Job! If we cannot connect with the City officials by educating the law and the urgency of conversation, then we must create a campaign to remove them from their elected positions. We have the final word.    

We urge the no voters to read the Federal Law specifications…”Federal Law permits local governments to seek a moratorium on new refugee resettlement activities in their community  if adversely impacting current residents, local government can be permitted to apply to temporarily suspend the additional settlement of refugees. ” 

The Role of States in the Refugee Resettlement Process

Residents Sound Off On Refugee Resettlement


Transcript from a speaker at the open forum:

Mayor.  City Council Members.

The taxpayers and citizens of St Cloud and surrounding area, are here to request that you place on your next meeting agenda, a discussion and approval of a St Cloud Area “Economic impact study and analysis” of the refugee resettlement program and increasing 2nd wave migration from other states.

We are not simply asking for an analysis of the costs—but to be fair—we are asking for a thorough and transparent impact study which includes both costs and benefits of the resettlement of refugees and 2nd wave migration.

As it is estimated that the refugee-immigrant population is currently reaching a quarter of the area population… An honest open discussion of just how many immigrants and refugees that the area can “reasonably absorb”—and  support—is a fair, reasonable, and responsible request.

We request that you work with Stearns county, the school district, state and local government agencies, local medical service providers, police and emergency services, as well as, the agencies which relocate refugees to the area.

While the public-private partnerships between the Federal government and nonprofit agencies, such as, Catholic Charities and Lutheran Immigrant and Refugee Services work together in resettling individuals from 3rd world countries—the taxpayers and local citizens are blocked from meetings held by these agencies—hindering transparency and accountability—as we, the local citizens, are not recognized as “Stake Holders.”

Catholic Charities and Lutheran Immigrant and Refugee Services receive millions in taxpayer dollars annually and many Minnesota business benefit from cheap labor—while local taxpaying citizens are left in the dark but, are expected to silently foot the bill on increased social and welfare services, medical, educational special needs of English Language Learners, and higher demands of police and emergency services…  Simultaneously observing—declining real estate values, a sharp increase in rental housing, negative impacts to local school districts, rising poverty and increasing crime rates.

SCSU’s School of Public Affairs Research Institute provide a Land Use Study for the City of Waite Park titled, “An Analysis of Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunity and Threats.”  The analysis cited a higher crime rate and higher number of police officers per 1,000 residents than the Minnesota average and identified an increasingly high ratio of rental/ownership of housing units, perhaps explaining lower average home sales than the state average.

A City of St Cloud study provided the same observations of an increase of over 66% in rental properties, in addition to rising poverty.

Gentleman, if there is nothing to hide—if the impact of the increasing numbers of immigrants and refugees are not straining the demand on local taxpayers but, are in fact a positive on our historically safe and vibrant community—then there should be no objection to a current, transparent, and accountable economic impact study and analysis so that we may reasonably and responsibly understand the costs and number of additional individuals we may be able to absorb and support in the St Cloud area.

As A Tool To Divide And Conquer
The Layman’s Primer

by Louis Beam

Excerpts: In modern times multiculturalism is instituted from the top down as an elitist ruling class tool used to play one or more racial or ethnic groups against another. The ensuing cultural melee serves the political designs, economic goals and power needs of elitist rulers and their sponsors. This technique was developed by Marxist ideologues who used multiculturalism in Russia to divide and conquer resistance to the institution of a communist state.

Those who sponsor multiculturalism are properly called multiculturalists and generally will be found to be those people with the least amount of personal culture appertaining to them. As a dying tree drops its leaves and is attacked by fungus and worms of decay, so to is a nation set upon by multiculturalists. The dominate culture is attacked from all sides. This is not so much a product of maliciousness as necessity. By vilifying, leveling, and weakening the dominant culture, an environment is created for social, political, and economic turmoil which produces change that will benefit the sponsors of a multiculturalist state. If the government and news media relentlessly pursue issues of race, gender, and diversity in preference to the real issues that need to be addressed, there will be an increasing division of society along the same lines. Which is exactly what the sponsors of multiculturalism want.

Social instability, caused by a steady erosion of standards and values, coupled with a scramble over dwindling economic opportunities by conflicting ethnic groups, produces precisely the alienation and conflict needed to implement a multicultural state. Further, the lack of common standards and values leads to personal disorganization, resulting in unsociable behavior. This is the life support system of a multicultural state. In a word: anomie.

Within the deleterious milieu of multiculturalism exists the propaganda opportunity for re-education of the people into a more malleable entity. A targeted population will be shaped mentally by new forms of public education in the schools, media indoctrination, and by elitist pronouncements. Thus placed in a crucible of economic necessity and social pressure, once free citizens become despondent masses, adjusting to and accepting fundamentally changing national circumstances as a matter of expedient survival. For the reticent, conformity by force will ensue in the form of legal penalties disguised as ant-drug, anti-terrorism, or anti-hate laws. All of this leading toward what George Orwell so aptly predicted in his book 1984:

“Almost certainly we are moving into an age of totalitarian dictatorships. An age in which freedom of thought will be at first a deadly sin and later on a meaningless abstraction.”

A necessary first step toward recovery is to look at politics, social policy, and government emanating from Washington D.C. with new eyes, unclouded by a lifetime of false information and deception propagated by elitist sponsors. Pretending any longer that the bought and paid for political prostitutes in Washington D.C. represent you or anyone you know is tantamount to cutting your own wrist with a razor blade. Self-destructive behavior may qualify one for government “protected class status” under diversity laws–but it will not save you, your family, or your nation.

America, Canada, and most of Europe are ruled by politicians about whom the best that can be said is that they are men of ill repute, each out to loot the state. One thing is clear, the American ruling elite of today are far closer in ideological viewpoint to world government ruled by a privileged few than it is to the world of the American Revolution or the Constitutional Convention of 1789. Yet still, the spirit of 1776 lives on in this land. For once again rebellion to tyrants in obedience to God is afoot. Listen closely and in the distance you can hear the ring of  liberty’s bell calling gallant sons and noble daughters to her aid. They know no left, nor right, only treason. And they will not fear to answer. Let tyrants tremble. And though the heavens fall, let there be justice.

Minnesota About To BURN After Mob Of Somali Muslims Take Over Neighborhood And Force HELL On Women

By Prissy Holly

America is still in shock over the murder of Minneapolis resident Justine Damond, who called police after witnessing an assault in her neighborhood. Minutes after her 911 call was placed, Damond would be dead, after a Somali Muslim police officer turned off his body cam and shot her in cold blood through his police car window. As the liberal media works overtime to bury the story since it puts leftists’ precious Muslim refugees in a negative light, now a sickening story is surfacing about a disturbing incident that happened in Minneapolis several months ago, that was completely ignored by the mainstream media.

Minneapolis is rapidly becoming a Sharia swamp thanks to the liberal politicians who keep allowing Somali Muslims to invade the city at an alarming rate. Muslim migrants in the city have attempted to set up Sharia zones in the past, and once thriving American neighborhoods have now been completely transformed into cesspools of crime, as these migrants have completely taken over large sections of the community. Now Minneapolis residents in one of the only remaining white neighborhoods are being victimized and threatened with death, after the sickening thing that a mob of 30 Somali Muslims did during their Sharia patrol.

Local reports reveal that white woman was just minding her own business outside of her home when a mob of migrant males approached her and began screaming disparaging comments at her, threatening to rape and kill her. KSTP TV interviewed the victim, where she relayed her horror about the incident that transpired in her neighborhood.

“They were screaming at the house that they were going to kidnap me and they were going to rape me,” one Minneapolis resident told KSTP TV. “It was a very traumatizing experience.”

The unnamed woman wasn’t the only one targeted with a barrage of terroristic threats, as the mob made their way around the upscale neighborhood yelling comments at numerous homeowners, while driving their vehicles onto the sidewalks and lawns while shooting off bottle rockets and screaming.

How Can So Many Good People Not Do Anything About Child Abuse?

Child Sex Trafficking In The US Is Exploding, Govt Admits They Aren’t Stopping It

By Rachel Blevins

A recent report on the number of sexually exploited children in Florida gives insight into a horrific world that is often ignored by the media, and that rarely holds millionaires, politicians and even local officials accountable for their involvement.

report from the Florida legislature’s Office of Program Policy Analysis & Government Accountability concluded that the state’s Department of Children and Family (DCF) and its lead agencies “have not resolved issues related to serving commercially sexually exploited children.”

The report found that in 2016, 356 verified commercially sexually exploited child victims were identified, as opposed to 264 identified in 2015. It noted that many of the victims who were identified earlier were, “both children in child welfare dependency and those living in the community with family—have since been re-victimized, involved with the criminal justice system, or only attended school intermittently.”

During 2016, DCF’s Florida Abuse Hotline received 2,013 reports alleging the CSE of children, which is a 57% increase over the 2015 reports. Child protective investigators investigated 1,386 (or 69%) of those reports. Counties with the highest number of CSE reports include Miami-Dade (248), Broward (232), Orange (150), and Hillsborough (144). DCF hotline staff did not refer cases for investigation if the allegation did not rise to the level of reasonable (74%), there were no means to locate the victim (11%), or the alleged perpetrator was not the child’s caregiver (8%). Of the reports that were referred for investigation, most came from DJJ, the Department of Corrections, or criminal justice personnel (20%) and law enforcement (15%).

In 2016, the National Human Trafficking Hotline received reports of 7,572 human trafficking cases, which was a substantial increase from 5,544 cases in 2015 and 5,042 cases in 2014. Florida ranked third on the list with 550 cases, behind Texas with 670 cases and California with 1,323 cases.

Out of the 7,572 human trafficking cases reported in the United States in 2016, the majority or 5,551 were “sex trafficking” cases, and 2,387 of the reported victims were minors.              

The report on child sex trafficking in Florida suggested that the increase in victims was due to the process DCF and the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) use to “select children to screen as well as the screening tool itself may limit accurate identification of CSE child victims.”

The report also noted that 62 percent of the children who were labeled as commercially sexually exported remained “in the community and are referred to voluntary, local services.” As a result, “no data is readily available on whether the children use these services.”

The Free Thought Project has provided extensive coverage of the sex trafficking epidemic in the U.S., especially in relation to minors who become victims after they are kidnapped from their homes and placed in foster care.

In April, two pastors who were foster care advocates were arrested for running a child sex ringin Ohio. The pastors, who had influence on their county’s Child Service’s Board of Trustees, were charged with “recruiting, enticing and transporting people the men knew were under 18 to engage in sex acts for pay.” The trafficking was ongoing for at least three years, and initially began with a 14-year-old girl.

In June, a lawsuit was filed in the case of a 5-year-old girl who was given to the leader of a child sex ring in Arizona. She was taken from her mother who was battling an addiction with substance abuse, and she was put in the custody of a pedophile who sexually abused her, tortured her, and ultimately left her fighting for her life.

The recent report from Florida is another reminder that child sex trafficking is a horrific element of the human trafficking epidemic that has been ongoing and increasing in the United States. While government involvement has always been an element, it has yet to put a stop to the increasing number of children who are subjected to life-altering abuse on a daily basis.

TIGHTENING THE SCREWS

Dayton Faces Protesters’ Blockade in Fishing Expedition

The governor called the protesters’ actions “destructive” and cancelled planned meetings in response.

Governor Dayton had a less than successful fishing expedition to Lake Mille Lacs on Saturday, as a circle of protesters angry at regulations on the lake’s walleye population joined him on the water.

It was Dayton’s second trip to Lake Mille Lacs this season, and unlike the season opener, this one was not without controversy. Current restrictions by the Department of Natural Resources have extended a ban on walleye fishing. The regulations bans targeting walleye until July 28. After that, anglers may engage in catch-and-release fishing until September 5, when a full ban is in place again until December.

A number of concerned citizens took to their boats to voice their displeasure with Dayton, reports the Pioneer Press. Dayton was less than pleased as his fishing trip was cut short.

“We couldn’t get fish because we had these boats circling around us,” Dayton told press in audio obtained from the governor’s office. “One person caught a Northern but [the protesters] just ruined the fishing with these boats just circling around us and heckling and the like, and you know they have a First Amendment right to do that but I’m here to emphasize the positive.”

The protest was organized by a group called Proper Economic Research Management (PERM.)

“DNR Management of the lake has nothing to do with Biology anymore, it is all about Politics,” PERM said in a press release on their website.

PERM is advocating an end to the co-management of fishing resources between the state and relevant Native American tribes. Specifically with regard to Lake Mille Lacs, Ojibwe tribes in Minnesota and Wisconsin have some treaty rights to the area’s fishing resources.

The Star Tribune reports that Dayton responded to the protest by canceling a meeting he was scheduled to have with several Lake Mille Lacs area business owners because he didn’t want to “reinforce that kind of destructive behavior.”

“I offered to meet with a representative group of the protesters and have that conversation,” Dayton said in the audio. “I thought of going today but I’m not going to emphasize the negative here.”

Dayton has met with protesters before however. In 2015, Dayton met with Black Lives Matter leaders even after their protests shut down highways, including ones leading to the Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport, the Star Tribune reported.

The governor’s office declined to answer a question regarding what criteria Dayton uses to determine a protest is engaging in “destructive behavior.”
