GOP Governors Betraying Constituents by Pushing Refugee Resettlement

GOP governors betraying constituents by pushing refugee resettlement  

The State Department is paying refugee contractors over $2100 per refugee





18 Republican Governors Ask for More Refugees in Their States, While “Charities” Are Cashing In and Grifting Off of American Taxpayers  


Trump signed an executive order allowing cities and states to ‘opt out’ of resettling refugees in their communities. A total of 18 Republican governors, out of 27, have betrayed citizens by placing the interests of non-citizens above them by requesting more refugee resettlement.


The immoral governors include: 

  • Doug Ducey, Arizona, 

  • Asa HutchinsonArkansas, 

  • Brad Little, Idaho, 

  • Eric Holcomb, Indiana, 

  • Kim Reynolds, Iowa, 

  • Larry Hogan, Maryland, 

  • Charlie Baker, Massachusetts

  • Mike Parsons, Missouri, 

  • Pete Ricketts, Nebraska, 

  • Chris Sununu, New Hampshire, 

  • Doug Burgum, North Dakota

  • Mike DeWine, Ohio, 

  • Kevin Stitt, Oklahoma, 

  • Kristi Noem, South Dakota, 

  • Bill Lee, Tennessee, 

  • Gary Herbert, Utah, 

  • Phil Scott, Vermont, and 

  • Jim Justice, West Virginia.


Ned Ryun reported that the U.S. State Department is paying refugee contractors over $2100 per refugee, of which they get to keep 45% of the money, which has nothing to do with charity or religious values. 

‘Private’ Refugee Resettlement Agencies Mostly Funded by the Government

Yearly compensation for the heads of these organizations range from a low of $132,000 to a high of $671,749.


Follow the money! These 9 non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) are funded by the Department of State and include:


The so-called “refugees” are supported with food, housing, clothes, and referrals to social service providers that help with medical care and employment; and they are enrolled in various benefits and welfare programs. They also receive support learning the English language along with help in community orientation. 


“This is how red states become blue… and how America ceases to be America.”


Arkansas Govenor Hutchinson has betrayed the people. See article below.

Arkansas Gov. Hutchinson tells Trump administration state will accept refugees  


In a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo dated December 23, 2019  affirming the state’s participation in the United States Refugee Admissions Program, Hutchinson said Arkansans have a history of welcoming refugees.


More than 30 governors have confirmed they will keep accepting refugees so far, but about a dozen Republican governors have stayed silent on the issue, according to the AP. (Evidently the governors have until January 21, 2020 to decide.)

President Trump’s order requires governors to publicly say either that they’ll accept refugees or that they will not, even if cities or counties welcome them. No state has announced plans to shut out refugees entirely, the AP reports. 

The new refugees will be joining the millions of asylum seekers that are already INSIDE the United States! What is the vetting criteria to determine refugee status? 

We have seen 18 incompetent GOP governors sign up for this egregious globalist agenda regarding refugee settlements, and sadly, Asa Hutchinson was one of them. This failed tax-and-spend governor is out of control, dear reader! He lacks leadership skills and common sense. Arkansas is a state that is laboriously taxed, one of the worst in the country, and we must NOT be forced into more refugee settlements. Taxpayers in this state cannot bear the costs of years and years of our hard-earned tax dollars going to more refugees with no cap in sight! Many communities are suffering already, and the legislators are well aware of this fact. Surely the governor must know that those tax debts are weighing down the public with already-limited budgets and could strain people’s paychecks to a breaking point.

The big question: what local authorities partnered with the governor on this disturbing issue? (Counties, cities or towns.)

Here’s the FOIA that was sent to the Arkansas Governor’s office. We will keep you posted on what we receive back:


1) Provide all confirmations received from each local municipalities confirming they will coordinate support and facilitate employment opportunities for refugees that are approved for relocation to Arkansas 

2) Provide all confirmations received from the members of each faith-based community confirming they will coordinate support and facilitate employment opportunities for refugees that are approved for relocation to Arkansas 

3) Provide all confirmations received from each non-profit community confirming they will coordinate support and facilitate employment opportunities for refugees that are approved for relocation to Arkansas. 


Note: The City of Fayetteville will probably be on the list of cities providing resettlement to the refugees. (Mayor Lioneld Jordan is still in office. He is a big player in the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Mayors are directed to do many things at these Sustainable Development conferences and have big plans for America in 2020. Voters have lost their voice!) Again, we will try to provide a list of places around the state where refugees will be placed.

In Arkansas, the resettlement program is handled by: 

The Arkansas Department of Human Services – The Refugee Resettlement Program of zArkansas assists newly arrived eligible refugees to assimilate into the American way of life. The program offers financial and medical services to eligible refugees for up to 8 months after arrival in the United States. The Arkansas Department of Human Services make available to these refugees applications to apply for Supplemental Nutritioin Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Transitional Employment Assistance (TEA) Program. 

If the refugee is eligible for SNAP or TEA Program they may be eligible for the following programs:

  • Housing assistance through HUD

  • Assistance for utility costs through the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)

  • Certain Medicaid categories. This is done through the local DHS county office.

  • Help with telephone service through Lifeline and Link Up 

  • Free school meals for children attending public schools. Children will be automatically enrolled through an administrative matching program.


This will be a big drain on tax resources of the state, county, cities, and school districts.

Governor Hutchinson’s policy needs to be Arkansas First and block refugees from coming into Arkansas. 

We must remember that the U.S. has the largest resettlement program in the world. This nation is long overdue for a moratorium, dear reader! Secure Arkansas seriously doubts many have refugee status. We wonder how many of them were actually persecuted. (Generally, a refugee is an alien that has supposedly experienced persecution in some form.) Moreover, we should add that it has NOT been about the little children, folks. We see the chaos of so-called “migration” occurring all over the world. Refugees, illegal aliens, and open borders bring repercussions. 

The U.S. governmental agencies and non-governmental agencies (NGO’s) that are responsible for settling the refugees in the United States lack the ability to properly access the consequences happening in many communities, as well as funding. Most communities are not prepared for the influx of alien refugees. We will be checking to see what services the governmental agencies and NGO’s will be offering to the refugees in this state and the economic impact.

Also, it looks like Catholic Charities Immigration Services in Springdale, Arkansas is offering a full range of resettlement services, including cash, medical assistance, jobs, and English language development. (Unfortunately, taxpayer money will be involved, folks.)

And, if you recall, Governor Asa Hutchinson was with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and it seems he is still an actor/player operating with them. He was the first Undersecretary for Border and Transportation Security at DHS. Looks like he and his global cohorts are cooperating fully with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), a United Nations migration program. Asa Hutchinson has surrounded himself with corrupt politicians, many of whom have been jailed or are on the verge of conviction.

Here’s a short snippet from the UN’s Director General in a 2014 report:


In 2014, the Senior Regional Adviser for the Americas continued to strengthen cooperation with relevant regional institutions. The Adviser also contributed to reinforcing migration policy dialogues and cooperative mechanisms, and participated in or coordinated inputs for meetings, workshops and conferences, including support for a series of bilateral consultations between IOM and Member State governments and regional institutions.


Interesting? Quoting the Department of Homeland Security from their website:

  • An attack in the homeland may come with little or no warning.

And they are telling us to be prepared:

“Be responsible for your personal safety. Know where emergency exits and security personnel are located. Carry emergency contact and special needs information with you.”

Tragically, some of the Human Trafficking operatives are using the refugee programs to their advantage. Do you think that one of the things that the former Arkansas State Senator Linda Collins-Smith (RIP) uncovered could have led to her death (murder)? Could Senator Colllins-Smith also have uncovered the sex trafficking connecting with DHS, Foster Child Service, Court Systems, and the Clinton Foundation, also? Remember the sinister NGO, Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund? A hotspot for human trafficking! Just think about that!

How familiar are you with the human trafficking problem in the United States? Check out these statistics: 

Human Trafficking Statistics by State 2020

Traffickers typically target men, women, and children who are vulnerable, have little to no social safety net or who are without strong family relationships. It can happen to people of any age, race, gender or nationality. Violence, manipulation, or false promises of a well-paying job are often used to lure victims into trafficking situations. Victims frequently do not seek help due to language barriers, fear of their traffickers or fear of law enforcement. 

A common misconception about human trafficking is that it does not happen in the United States. This is false, as the United States is ranked as one of the worst countries in the world for human trafficking. It is estimated that 199,000 incidents occur within the United States every year.

The number of Human Trafficking Cases Reported for Arkansas was 85. Many of the cases go unreported.


Secure Arkansas wanted to include this news clip from KATV from October 9, 2019 concerning human trafficking.


Action Item: 

1. Tell your Arkansas legislators and Governor not to accept any new refugees in Arkansas. The state policy should be Arkansas First!

2. Attend the City, County & Local Affairs Committee meeting on Monday, January 13, 2020 at 10:00 AM in the MAC Building, Room A, located behind the Arkansas State Capitol, 500 Woodlane St. Little Rock, AR 72201. Governor Asa Hutchinson is scheduled on the agenda to address the committee concerning Arkansas allowing Refugees and Illegal Aliens into the state.

In closing, we would have to be blind not to see the dominant hand of the one world government at work. There will not remain one sovereign nation upon this planet, unless we stop the criminal network that fuels and supports the inefficient refugee policies in place at this time. These heinous refugee policies propel human trafficking in which many people have been forcefully displaced! Crime fuels crime and creates a global conflict zone. Organized criminal groups appear to be running this state.

Once again: follow the money, stay informed, and stay tuned…
