The U.S. Government’s meddling in the Middle East has created a massive problem that is now eating its way across the globe like an unstoppable cancer. Thanks to State Department and CIA efforts to topple governments in the Middle East, the entire region is now being ripped apart by war. As a result of war hundreds of thousands (If not millions) are fleeing for the West.
Unfortunately, the West is in no way capable of dealing with such a massive influx of people who cannot take care of themselves. Not financially, not morally and not mentally. Europe is on the verge of economic collapse and the U.S. is not far behind.
It’s bad enough for Europe (financially) that hundreds of thousands of people are flooding in and European nations have no capacity to deal with them. For the U.S. it’s worse, however, because we’re transferring billions of dollars to roll out the red carpet for Muslim refugees when our own citizens are struggling to make ends meet.
Here in the U.S. we’re not shuffling people into camps. No, here we’re setting Muslim refugees up with a better life than many taxpayers have. And these same taxpayers are footing the bill.
Everything I’ve said so far shouldn’t come as a surprise. Barack Obama recently announced he’s raising the refugee cap from 70,000 to 85,000 to make room for 15,000 Syrian refugees. His plan for next year involves the cap shooting to 100,000. This means some 45,000 Syrians, most of whom are likely Muslim, will enter the U.S. between now and the end of next year.
This you probably already know. What you might not know, though, is that every single one of them will likely get flights, a furnished apartment, monthly cash, education, healthcare, job placement assistance and more. This all starts the day they arrive.
When Obama says he’s bringing in 45,000 from Syria, he leaves out the part about how much it will cost taxpayers. He makes the announcement as if Syrians will find their way here, be allowed in and sent on their way to figure life out like the rest of us. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Truth is, Obama’s federal government has been bankrolling organizations with billions of dollars in preparation for this invasion of foreigners. And he’s been doing it all right in front of us. None of it is hidden. Well, thanks to media it is hidden… but in plain sight.
Exactly how much are we talking here? Well, the State Department spent about $3 billion on refugee services for the fiscal year that ended September 30th of 2015. That amount is expected to increase this year.
Again, Obama spent $3 BILLION of our dollars moving foreigners into the U.S. as refugees last year.
How is all of this money being spent and through what process? The answer is not easy to explain. In fact, the money flows through a vast network of organizations via the Office of Refugee Resettlement. The ORR is a division of the United States Department of Health and Human Services.
For this story we’re going to focus on Texas. The state of Texas is in for a wild ride over the next few years as its conservative, free market environment has created a gold mine for the fed when it comes to refugees.
Texas leads the nation in refugee resettlement because unlike most states, Texas has a bustling economy, a great job market and sustainable state government. Additionally, Texas has a vast network of resettlement agencies and astroturfed (Paid grassroots) refugee communities.
Texas has 26 organizations/agencies who plan on receiving Syrian refugees. We haven’t gone through each of them to see what kind of taxpayer dollars are flowing in, but we’ve pulled enough to know the sum is enormous.
In 2013/14, for example, the ORR funneled nearly $34,000,000 in mandatory spending and another $7,000,000 for the ‘Refugee Social Services Program.’ This funding was for Texas alone… never-mind the 49 other states and the funding pumped their way. And ALL of it is earmarked for refugees.
One of the largest networks set to receive Syrian refugees is the Refugee Services of Texas. $1,243,000 was redistributed to RST last year and that amount is expected to increase significantly this coming fiscal year. $1.2 million may not sound like a lot, but consider that RST only handles a small percentage of the refugees coming in.
The cost per refugee is unknown, but we know the Syrians coming will get flights, apartments, furniture, education, healthcare, a welcome kit that includes a lump sum of cash, monthly cash payments and job placement programs. We know this because it was all explained in a secretly recorded phone call obtained by a LibertyNews.com source in Texas.
The caller dialed one of the RST offices as a potential volunteer looking for information. During the course of the call the representative described the program along with the benefits that come with it.
Listen to the call below.
The United States already has an overwhelming immigrant problem. With most immigrants illegally coming our way they do get access to our social welfare system, but they don’t get an instant new life paid for and funded by you and I. With Syrian refugees, however, they get transportation, a home, furniture, money, education and healthcare.
All of this while the U.S. economy teeters on the verge of collapse.
How is that “representative” government working out for you these days?
