Haynes, Wyoming Candidate for Governor Gets the Refugee Racket

Most politicians are clueless about the refugee racket.  DC politicians who pass budgets for the State Dept ($1.5B refugee line items) and the HHS ($1.5B refugee/family line items) and other costs 'hidden' in other huge budget items (welfare, tanf, snap, wic, sec8, medicaid, public school resources, etc.) estimated over $40B annually - they don't have a clue how it works. They are just line items in much bigger budgets.  The State Dept. pushes refugees and asylum quotas exceeding 150,000 every year, and the HHS pushes minor illegal aliens and family reunification for another 100,000 'refugees.'  Every year.  And all of them get all the welfare benefits of full citizenship and more, including special grants and cash payments.  Including long term support after the first year, our govt. spends over $100 Billion annually for welfare and direct support for 'refugees.'  It is a HUGE racket and our politicians haven't a clue.   Most think the 'churches' represented by the Big 9 NGOs:

get their funding from private sources to resettle refugees and unaccompanied minors.  False.  Other big players like the Baptists Children and Family Services (BCFS) are in big on the unaccompanied minor racket funded by the HHS Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). On average, based on most recent filings, 92% of these NGOs' revenue is government grants from the State Dept and HHS!  Most no longer even bother trying to raise private charity funding.  Why bother!  The government is a money gusher for these groups, the grants come like clockwork every year.  And salaries at these NGOs are amazing.  CEOs earning a half million or more a year.  Executive salaries and benefits exceeding 30% to 50% of their 'granted' revenue.  And no one in our government cares.   No oversight as long as they make their refugee resettlement quotas.

But there is one candidate for governor that has done his homework and does get it.   Taylor H. Haynes M.D. is running for Governor in Wyoming.  Wyoming is the ONLY state that does not have a refugee racket resettlement system in place.

The Lutheran refugee service (LIRS) is pushing hard to establish this new dumping ground for the refugees they get paid per head to resettle.  The current governor  Matt Mead is all for it.  Why?  Haynes gets it and has written the following paper explaining this folly.

Somali Folly: “The Rest of the Story”

Why the Governor’s Plan for Refugee Settlement Camps in Wyoming Must Be Stopped

                                              July 8, 2014 
Our United States has immigration laws. People from around the world have prepared themselves to come to the United States by learning the language and developing marketable skills. They learn our history, our constitution, and swear allegiance to our country and our way of life. They want not only to immigrate, they want to assimilate. They patiently wait their chance at the American dream. 
Gathering up large numbers of people who are refugees from war torn countries, who haven’t prepared themselves to come here, and who largely shun our culture is a travesty as it undermines our system of immigration. The refugee green card protocol is being used to legally undermine our workforce, and through the influx of alien values, it undermines our Judeo-Christian culture. 

Refugees can also potentially compromise our national security. The US 
Citizenship and Immigration Services implemented several policies authorized by Homeland Security that exempted over 400 refugees from terrorism-related inadmissibility grounds in 2013. [1]    

Who then gains from this blatantly unethical practice?  
For one, it is a lucrative business for refugee resettlement agencies which receive a per capita grant of $1,875 per person. Additionally, the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), a division of Health and Human Services, has over 200 grants available.   In 2014, Congress allocated $1.489 billion to ORR, which equates to around $24,800 per refugee per year. [2]

The meatpacking industry, for another, is in it “whole hog” (pun intended). According to Jessica Schaid of the New Mexico State University, meat packing plants benefit from turnover in several ways:
     1)  keeping aggregated labor costs low;  
     2)  preventing many workers from becoming eligible for health benefits;  
     3)  allowing the plant to use job training funds to supplement the wages of new hires;  
     4)  And depending on unstable workers who are less likely to become union activists.  [3]
This is a government sponsored, job killing, cheap labor scheme where high turnover rates create a host of social welfare issues.  For example, despite the claims of fair wages, refugees who are employed in the meatpacking plant in Greely Colorado are now coming to Cheyenne to seek social services. [4]  Nearly 60% of adult refugees are on government medical assistance, 70% are receiving food stamps, 32% are in public housing, and 38% are getting cash assistance through TANF or SSI.  
It is my opinion and intent that “public assistance” must be limited to United States citizens. 
Somalia, Congo and other war torn countries have no formal governments such as we are accustomed to. We are living in an ever-increasing police state where too much information is gathered on U.S. citizens and there is essentially no real information on the new labor they are importing. 
These refugees, and the hordes of people flooding the southern border, are a ‘soft invasion’ which left unchecked will cause us to become like other countries in the world that are mostly dependent on the government. Our government is in turn in bed with multinational corporations only interested in the cheapest labor they can get.

The risk of imported diseases is quite real. The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials 2013 report noted that 60% of new tuberculosis (TB) cases, including 85% of multi-drug resistant (MDR) cases in the United States, occur in foreign born patients. This report also recounted that the SARS epidemic of 2003 and the H1N1 pandemic of 2009 was facilitated by people coming into the U.S.from foreign countries.  [5]

The report went further to point out that Refugees who are resettled in virtually every state are the most vulnerable at-risk population entering the United States.  This is due to the limited access to food, vaccination, and health services prior to coming to the United States. Many suffer from mental health problems often associated with traumatic experiences like war prior to their displacement.  Crowding and poor sanitation in refugee camps contribute to outbreaks of polio, measles, and cholera. There is no screening for diseases like HIV with long incubation periods. 
Sexual assault, rape, trafficking, polygamy, domestic violence and child marriage have all been reported in refugee camps, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.  Around 45% of refugees resettled in one large resettlement state in 2009 to 2011 tested positive for hepatitis A antibodies. [6] Thus the influx of large numbers of people in this situation poses a threat to public health and the above noted risk to our labor force and indeed our way of life. 
This must be stopped at Wyoming’s border!
