WTH! Heritage Foundation gives five fluffy reasons US should resettle refugees, by Ann Corcoran on July 12, 2017
And, they suggest that the big reform effort with the program should be around the issue of “assimilation.” Yikes! Didn’t Ms. Enos see what Linda Sarsour said recently—no assimilation for Muslims coming to America!
When Richard (Blue Ridge Forum) brought this article to my attention last evening, I found I couldn’t even cope with the title late at night: “5 Reasons The U.S. Refugee Program Serves American Interests” Now with my morning coffee I’m ready to blast away at this fluff!
Enos sounds like she is auditioning for a job at the US State Department where she would join like-minded bureaucrats who want nothing to stand in the way of more refugees for America! Yet, on paper, she would come with the ‘conservative’ stamp of approval—from the vaunted Heritage Foundation!
Here is Heritage on why the US Refugee Admissions Program only needs a little tinkering around the edges! I swear this sounds like the verbiage that came out of the mouths of Obama’s refugee pushers!
Five flimsy, fluffy reasons that the American taxpayer should shell out billions a year (a large chunk of which goes to the religious LEFT, see here, working against conservatives), to seed welfare consuming third world poverty and diverse cultures many of which don’t plan to assimilate in to unsuspecting towns and cities across 49 states. (But Ms. Enos doesn’t have to face any of that, according to her bio she lives on Capitol Hill.)
Her five reasons….
#1. USRAP enables the U.S. to assert American leadership in foreign crises.
#2. USRAP provides the U.S. with a way to respond positively to intractable crises.
#3. USRAP enables the U.S. to assist allies and partners in crisis.
#4. USRAP strengthens American public diplomacy.
#5. USRAP alleviates human suffering.
I admit I didn’t read Heritage’s entire report, I mentioned one portion of it here. I stopped reading when it became clear that the authors had no firm understanding of how the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program really works. Ms. Enos is working on a Master’s degree at Georgetown University, could she be studying with Anne Richard? Perish the thought!
