“Refugee Resettlement Program – Taking Place Right Under Our Noses”

From Donna Garner


Most Americans know nothing about this issue. Ann Corcoran’s 4-minute YouTube video explains the refugee resettlement program which should raise great concern in the hearts of every American who loves our country:



4.1.16 – “How an Environmental Lobbyist Became an Influential, Anti-Refugee Blogger” – by Jared Goyette — PRI’s the World —

Excerpts from this article: 

Every morning at 5:30, a 65-year-old woman gets up in her small farm in Maryland to make coffee, and then proceeds to take to her keyboard to rail against refugees, Muslim immigrants and the what she calls the existential threat “creeping sharia law” poses to the United States.

And then, once she’s done, she sets out to complete the day’s chores: shoveling manure, feeding the horses, raking hay or mowing the fields.

There are two major themes to her blog. One is that the refugee resettlement program is an example of Big Government imposing its will on small communities, who need to be better informed and have more say in the process. If it were up to her, the entire refugee program would be junked and the third-party contractors who resettle refugees eliminated. The other consistent argument, the more visceral one, is that any increase in the Muslim population of the US pushes the US closer to Sharia, or Islamic law…

In addition to having two children of their own, she and her husband adopted two children from Vietnam, a boy and a girl. Both are in their 20s now. Her adopted daughter is an officer in the US Navy.

“The only reason I mention my Vietnamese children is to make the point that I don’t mind people from other countries coming to live here. I mean, my goodness, we brought people from other countries to our home, we raised them, we gave them college educations,” she says.

…instead of fighting Big Government and developers for land, she took on government and nonprofits for the “dumping of third-world cultures on communities that are unsuspecting,” she says.

It wasn’t about the fear of some dangerous and different other. “I argued from the very beginning,” says Corcoran, “if they can come to any town in America and put all the facts on the table for the community to discuss — like where are they going to work, do we have an industry here that needs these workers, how much subsidized housing do we have, what’s our school system, do we have enough capacity in our school system? — then I would be OK with that.”
