    But, contrary to what you might think, it isnt New York City they are going to. Resettlement contractors operating in the state are placing them in Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Utica along with a whole host of smaller cities throughout the state. On these pages over the years weve told you about problems and especially made note of the UN designated Town that Loves Refugees (Utica) having serious problems now with schools overloaded with educationally needy children, here. It does not take a genius to figure out that there is a huge cost associated with educating children who do...

    HAMILTON -- An influx of Garth Brooks fans to Hamilton is temporarily pushing some Syrian refugee families out. Various local media reports say more than 200 Syrian refugees were bumped from their accommodations at downtown Hamilton hotels to make way for thousands of Brooks fans who already booked rooms. The country music legend is playing a series of concerts in the city Thursday through Sunday night. Reports say the refugees were shuttled to St. Catharines -- about 55 kilometres away -- to stay at another hotel for the duration of the shows.

In fact, the Soros Fund Management is one of John Kasich’s top financial contributors.“This can hardly be a surprise,” Macy writes. His full letter can be read here.

    President Barack Obama has been quietly pushing new plans to bring thousands of additional Syrian refugees into the country, despite the concerns of state and county officials and the outrages committed by welfare-dependent migrants in Europe. Obama’s special assistant to the president for immigration policy, Felicia Escobar, recently announced plans to increase America’s intake of migrants, according to the Washington Examiner. “We want to make sure that we can increase our numbers of refugees that are able to settle here,” Escobar said. “The need globally is so, so, so massive right now, given all the displacement and conflict around the...

    Japan accepted only 27 refugees last year and rejected almost all applications, officials said Saturday, as rights groups urged the government to allow more people in. The country has long been nervous about an influx of refugees into its homogeneous society and has tightly restricted the number it accepts. Of the thousands seeking refugee status, five were Syrian, only three of which were accepted -- a far cry from the massive influx of Syrians into Europe from the war-torn Middle East nation last year....

    A pair of Algerian asylum seekers living in Germany and suspected of robbing an elderly woman's handbag used multiple identities to claim asylum and hide previous arrests. The pair, aged 17 and 31 told police in Essen, western Germany they had fled war-torn Syria after they were arrested on suspicion of stealing the 63-year-old woman's handbag. However, police soon discovered that both men, whose names have not been released, had been arrested on a number of previous occasions using different identities.

    Since China introduced its "one child" policy in 1978, the imbalance between the sexes has increased to the point where in today's generation there are 119 boys for every 100 girls. The pioneer generation of that male surplus are now adults. Professor Valerie Hudson, a Texas A&M University professor, said gender imbalances could cause serious problems in the community. She said societies where men outnumbered women were more susceptible to higher levels of violence, insurgence and mistreatment of women. Sweden is of particular interest to Professor Hudson, because it has the second-highest number of asylum applications in Europe, relative to...

    VANCOUVER -- Police said they were looking for a suspect after more than a dozen Syrian refugees were pepper sprayed late Friday night in Vancouver. The attack happened outside the Muslim Association of Canada Centre during a "welcome night" event for newly-arrived Syrian refugees. City police said a crowd of men, women and children had gathered outside the MAC centre when a man wearing a white-hoodie apparently rode by on a bicycle and sprayed 15 to 30 people. Witnesses said several of those who were hit started coughing and complaining of burning eyes. Police said that a number of people...

    Two weeks ago, Turkish police arrested an Islamist with ties to many upper tier al-Qaida members. The man not only tried to get asylum in Germany, but claims to have known about the London bombings beforehand and to have helped the 9/11 pilots. The Turkish interrogators in Istanbul's high-security prison wanted to be polite; they wanted to show respect for Islam. They offered their prisoner, an Islamist named Luai Sakra, 31, a chance to pray during a pause in questioning. They'd done the same thing with earlier suspects. The move was supposed to establish trust. But this prisoner reacted a...

McConnell said that "the ability to vet people coming from that part of the world is really quite limited." He pointed to a refugee from Iraq who was resettled in Kentucky and later implicated in a terrorist conspiracy despite being...

Most of the 10,000 refugees arriving by the end of the year will be sponsored by private groups and Canadian citizens.

    (full title) New concerns about Syrian refugees. Just because the prime minister has extended the timeline for bringing them to Canada, doesn’t mean the public’s legitimate questions have been addressed Now that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government has released more details about resettling 25,000 Syrian refugees in Canada and recalibrated its overly ambitious timetable, the exaggerated rhetoric has started to subside. Rather than ending the debate, however, it raises other policy questions, since even more than 25,000 refugees could be on their way to Canada in 2016. If not handled carefully, this has the potential of exacerbating anti-Muslim sentiment in...

    I recently sent a letter to Dayton Ohio Mayor, Nan Whaley, questioning her openness to accepting "resettlement" of "migrants." My questions to the Mayor went as follows: October 13, 2015 Dear Mayor Whaley, I recently discovered that you signed an open letter to President Obama, asking to increase the number of refugees for "resettlement." Have you considered what the effects of this will be on the community? In your letter, you claim "the U.S. has developed a robust screening and background check." Is ISIS now helping with background checks of people fleeing its territory? Is the U.S. government able to...

    For five days a coordinated DC Media has been attacking as racists anyone opposed to President Obama’s plan to resettle thousands of Syrians refugees here in America.

By nearly 2-to-1 (53% to 28%), Americans oppose the resettlement program.Bloomberg: (Bloomberg content snipped per FR rules) When you add in the 11% who only want Christian refugees, that adds up to 64% who do not want Muslim refugees from Syria.The American people are compassionate but they are not stupid, nor are...

Hundreds of thousands of tons of fuel have been delivered to Iraq for processing by trucks and the revenue generated from these illegal exports is the one of the terrorists’ main sources of funding, he said.

    Members of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted Tuesday night against a motion supporting Gov.
