On September 24, 2015, mayors from eighteen U.S. cities signed a letter to President Obama urging him to take in even more refugees than the mere 85,000 that the administration intends to accept this year. The letter, while listing only 18 mayors, is in reality apart of a much broader network that consists of over 84 mayors in nearly 100 cities and growing that are working in conjunction with the organization called Cities United For Immigration Action (CUIA).

In this letter written to the President, the mayors not only commend Obama for accepting 10,000 Syrian Refugees, but call for him to accept tens of thousands more...

With mayors signing on from states such as Minnesota, California, New York, New Jersey, New Mexico, Florida, Colorado, and many more the coalition has pledged their support for accepting refugees with little to no input for the concern of American citizens. Yet, this letter from the mayors represents only the latest push from officials and politicians working to undermine the sovereignty of our country through what James Simpson of the Center for Security Policy has labeled The Red-Green Axis.

“America is being undermined by a tidal wave of immigration,” writes Simpson, noting that “federal agencies collaborate with multinational entities and a universe of liberal organizations to bring in people from all over the world, while so-called ‘Volunteer Agencies‘ (VOLAGs) are remunerated handsomely on taxpayer dollars.” Every year, for instance, the U.S. government allows approximately 1 million immigrants to establish legal permanent residence in the United States. Among them are people from countries unfriendly or outright hostile to the U.S. as an estimated 140,000 emigrate from Muslim countries and an even greater number from communist countries. And these are just the “legal ones”...

These ‘Voluntary Agencies’ known as VOLAGs are listed below with their acronyms and can be viewed by clicking on each agency:

CWS – Church World Service

ECDC – Ethiopian Community Development Council

HIAS – Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society

IRC – International Rescue Committee

LIRS – Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services

CC/USCCB – Catholic Charities/U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops

USCRI – U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants

EMM – Episcopal Migration Ministries WRI World Relief Inc.

Additionally, there are 350 subcontractors in 190 cities affiliated with the nine main refugee VOLAGs and the chart below lists the amount of money awarded by the federal government to these contractors since 2008.

As you can see the amount of money that has been awarded to these non-governmental organizations is enormous with the total since 2008 amounting to over $4 billion. Simpson notes that “because they are non-governmental organizations (NGOs), they can and do lobby for advantageous changes to law and build allies in Congress and the bureaucracy, all fertilized by an open spigot of taxpayer dollars.”

From this point, as an American, you should be absolutely stunned at what is going on behind the scenes without your knowledge nor your input in regards to the fact that your taxpayer money along with your elected officials are undermining your security by allowing these organizations operate without any oversight...

In her book, Refugee Resettlement and the Hijra to America, Ann Corcoran explains that “Refugee resettlement has become a major money-maker for what can only be described as the ‘Religious Left,’ whose goal is to change the demographic make-up of the 180-plus cities and towns in which they presently work...
