Jewish groups urge Trump administration to restore higher refugee quotas

Times of Israel

Some 167 national, state and local Jewish organizations, including the major umbrella bodies of the Orthodox, Conservative and Reform streams, have called on the US government to meet the refugee resettlement admissions goal for this year.

The goal for fiscal year 2019 is 30,000, a historically low figure. 

letter signed by the organizations was delivered to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday.

The signers cross the religious and political spectrum of the American Jewish community, including major Orthodox umbrella groups Orthodox Union and Agudath Israel of America, Conservative Judaism’s Rabbinical Assembly, and Reform Judaism’s Central Conference of American Rabbis and Union for Reform Judaism.

Other prominent signers include the Jewish Federations of North America, J Street, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, HIAS, B’nai B’rith International and American Jewish World Service.

“The United States has historically distinguished itself as a beacon of hope and as a safe haven for those who most need it,” the letter says, noting that the global refugee population reached a record 25.9 million in 2018.

It points out that for nearly 40 years, the refugee admissions target averaged 95,000 per year, with actual admissions averaging about 80,000. The Trump administration set the 30,000 ceiling for 2019.

“Resettling zero refugees in the US in FY2020 would effectively gut the refugee resettlement program, violate our values as Jews and Americans, and abdicate the American promise of freedom and opportunity,” the letter adds, calling for the previous refugee target of 95,000 to be restored.

“These actions – turning our backs on people fleeing for their lives – defy the proud promise indelibly inscribed on the Statute of Liberty. As Jews, we know all too well what happens when people fleeing for their lives have nowhere to turn. Our parents or grandparents, neighbors or community members once faced a similarly callous and unwelcoming world, with fatal consequences.”

    Time for citizens first. There are over 8000 Bosnian refugees in my town plus many more from other shitholes.
    Their kids go to school bragging about free govt money, free health care.
    Many refugees own restaurants, in the back where the owners park there are BMWs, Mercedes, etc. Probably given grants to open restaurants, not pay taxes.
    Tired of most refugees living better than most citizens and most still hate our culture and us, just use us for our money and free stuff.
    Screw the refugee programs, dam churches make billions off these programs.

      Citizen:

      b : a native or naturalized person who owes allegiance to a government and is entitled to protection from it

      You are right to be angry but the “c” word is an acknowledgement of serfdom and slavery under the 14th Amendment. And yes, SCREW the refugee status and the dirty joo-run church.

      WE are American Nationals here.

      “… just use us for our money and free stuff.”

      And how do you think they’re getting here… all these dirt-poor peons (especially those from Africa)?

      It’s ALL by design, to destroy this country internally, since it can’t happen externally… funded by the likes of Soros & Co.

      The dirty church conglomerate became part of the so-called ‘government’ apparatus when they joined the 501(c)(3) club.

        THE “DENOMINATIONS” HAVE BEEN LAUNDERING MONEY FOR THE MASONIC LODGE FOR YEARS…………………..A MASON CANNOT BE A CHRISTIAN, YET YOU FIND THEM READILY IN ALL THESE “CHRISTIAN DENOMINATIONS”, USUALLY IN PLACES OF POWER……ESPECIALLY PASTOR, DEACON,OR “TREASURER”.
        TO A GOSPEL PREACHER, FREEMASONRY IS A FORM OF WITCHCRAFT, THAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE EXPOSED FROM THE PULPIT………

    DAMN!

    That’s actually as close to the truth as a stinking jew usually ever gets.

    What he fails to mention is that they were always fleeing because they were murdering, thieving degenerate bast@rds who had to keep on the move constantly – to elude their (righteous) pursuers.

      If you or I got kicked out of 109++ bars, we might think it would be US that was the problem and not the bars?!

        Hellooooooo… !

        That one just jumped right in my face… couldn’t state any other conclusion.

        Not legitimately, anyway. 🙄

        • Martist says:

          Hope you’re doing well, #1. Always in my thoughts and prayers, man. Keep giving ’em hell, please. We’ll both do it until we can’t! Peace, Brother:-)

          • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

            Been at it for over 7 years now on FTT, Martist.

            Truth be told… even I’m surprised they haven’t shut Henry or myself up yet, after all the toxic sh#t we’ve exposed them for.

            But like you said… until we can’t. The one thing I CAN’T do is shut up about the truth – it’s just not in my nature to ignore & NOT expose it, regardless of personal risk.

  5. Martist says:

    Right on, #1! Henry has the fight in him for sure and I am G’d happy he’s still spearheading this fight. We’ve all lost a lot already, and too much, but that’s WHY WE are the way WE are. It’s OURS, and you know Ihat, and that’swhy you won’t S the F up about it. Because you shouldn’t, that’s why. But I don’t gotta tell you 🙂
