USCCB launches PR campaign this week: “welcome the stranger” (with your money!)

Breitbart is reporting that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops has launched a campaign this week (January 3-9) to urge all Catholics to press Obama to admit 200,000 refugees in the coming year (100,000 would be mostly Muslim Syrians).

This is Kevin Appleby, the Bishops’ lobbyist. The Bishops also supported amnesty via the Gang of Eight bill. It would have provided them more paying “clients.”

They make it sound like good Catholics (in parishes across America) are footing the bill by ‘sponsoring‘ refugees.  Nothing could be further from the truth!

I just want to scream when I see these deceivers not tell the public how much federal tax dollars they get for their “migration” work.

Stealing from your wallet is not Christian charity.

Here is the news at Breitbart:

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is celebrating National Migration Week from January 3-9, urging Catholics throughout the country to support policies that “welcome the stranger among us.”

[….]

The bishops are urging “providing 100,000 annual resettlement slots for the most vulnerable refugees fleeing the Syria conflict,” and “designating an additional 100,000 refugees to be resettled in the U.S. from other countries.”

“Write…a letter to President Obama, urging him expand U.S. resettlement efforts of Syrian refugees who are fleeing unspeakable atrocities and violence,” the bishops urge as they also ask for donations to the Migrant Refugee Services’ (MRS) “Parishes Organized to Welcome Refugees” program which works to provide sponsorships of “newly-arriving Syrian and other refugees.”

Any money you put in the collection plate is a drop in the bucket compared to how much Washington is giving them for their ‘charitable’ work.  And, you know that many Republicans are complicit in providing the massive funding going to the Bishops and other so-called ‘religious’ charities!

Now have a look at the USCCB Migration Fund annual report!

MRS Audited Financial Statement
(As of December 31, 2014)
REVENUE
Federal Grants/Agreements……………………………………………$79,590,512
CRS Collection………………………………………………………………..1,778,214
Travel Loan Collection Fees……………………………………………….3,401,622
Meeting Fees/Dues…………………………………………………………….147,526
Private Grants /Donations……………………………………………………582,655
Other………………………………………………………………………………..6,421

Total Revenue…………………………………………………………………….$85,506,950

That means that 97% of the Bishops funding for “migration” comes from the US taxpayer.  (Those travel loan collection fees are your money too! When they wring the travel loan repayment from the impoverished refugees, they get to keep a cut rather than return it to the US Treasury).

Former PA Republican governor Tom Ridge, untrustworthy, says he won’t support Trump

Yesterday we told you about the dueling rallies in Lancaster, PA between those who want to put the needs of Americans first and those who welcome the resettlement of sharia-loving Muslim and other impoverished third-world refugees to your small cities and towns.

Ridge and Trump
Ridge: Trump is an “embarrassment.”

Republican ‘leaders’ like Tom Ridge are to blame for how we got to this place.  I’ll bet as governor he never once looked into the administration of the refugee resettlement program in his state.  And, surely, as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, the refugee screening issue was not discussed or we wouldn’t be in this fix now.

Although Ridge now says we can’t screen refugees from Syria, here, two years ago he signed a letter with Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan asking the GOP to get behind bringing in MORE refugees from Muslim countries. They didn’t specifically say Muslim countries, but since two of the largest groups entering—Iraqis and Somalis—are Muslims, by asking for more it goes without saying they supported the influx of that group.

Open borders Republicans!

Here is what I said about the 2014 letter and the list of those in the Republican ruling class that are not to be trusted because they used such poor judgement in signing this letter—a letter that was only picked up by Human Rights First!

The statement is signed by former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez; former Florida Governor Jeb Bush;  former Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Tom Ridge;  Kansas Governor Sam Brownback; former Senator Mel Martinez;  Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform;   Suhail A. Khan, chairman of the Conservative Inclusion Coalition; Jim Ziglar, former Commissioner of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS); Alberto Mora, former General Counsel of the Navy; and Dr. Paula Dobriansky, former Under Secretary of State for Democracy and Global Affairs .

Ridge will not support Trump!

Ridge tells Chuck Todd he will not support Trump if he is the Republican nominee.  So is he going to vote for Hillary?

Watch Ridge’s interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd.  Ridge is a Jeb! backer and although Trump promised to support whoever the Republican nominee is, Ridge isn’t going to support Trump.

With ‘friends’ like these, who needs enemies!
