Get ready Humboldt, TN because in a few years your small city (that is now welcoming a labor-hungry meatpacking plant) will have the joys of diversity visited upon you too.
For new readers Chobani Yogurt (BIG YOGURT) in Twin Falls is one of several food processing factories to enjoy the refugee labor being sent their way by the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program and its NGO contractors.
However, see here that the Trump Administration is slowing the movement of their workforce in to the country.
All these global corporations will be scrambling if this keeps up!
Here is how the story begins at MagicValley.com:
TWIN FALLS — A group of faith leaders are planning an interfaith rally — a response to an October incident where butchered pig parts were draped on a cross at the Islamic Center of Twin Falls.
Faith Leaders of the Magic Valley are organizing a rally for religious freedom. It's slated for 11 a.m. to noon Saturday at Twin Falls City Park.
Organizers say it's a grassroots effort, and the purpose is to celebrate the diversity of religions in Twin Falls and to exercise freedom of religion. It's a direct response to the Islamic Center incident, which Twin Falls police have called a hate crime.
To learn more visit MagicValley.com because I dare not give you another paragraph of their story.
They are the only paper in the country to ever send me a legal letter for snipping too much of a story (says a lot doesn’t it!). I’ll bet I actually added to their traffic that day!
Sorry I didn’t see this sooner, but send photos if you attended!

In his hilarious screed I reported here, Beinart says in critical tones that I (“anti-Muslim bigot” Ann Corcoran) oppose Muslim refugee’s efforts to require "local government to pay for a Muslim cemetery."
In so doing one can only conclude that Beinart is supportive of such an effort—-Muslims wanting nothing to do with infidels even in the grave.
So much for assimilation.
Okay, I get that, but are taxpayers of small town America supposed to support that desire. I sure hope we aren’t creating separate cemeteries or separate sections of cemeteries to accommodate every other religion with public funds.
One thing I never understand about Leftwingers is that they squawk all the time about separation of church and state until the government financing works out in their (Leftwing group’s) favor.
His reference to my concern comes from this story I posted in 2010 where a group of Muslim refugees approached the Garden City, KS Commissioners seeking special treatment in a community cemetery. I don’t know if they ever got their special favor for special people, but I do know that Garden City has been inundated with refugee workers for Tyson Foods and the town’s elected officials have been ‘captured’ as a result.
Again, one can only conclude that if opposition to public-funded cemeteries are evidence of anti-Muslim bias then conversely Beinart is in favor of taxpayers of America supporting the Muslim ‘faith’ with special treatment.
And, one more thing, if you missed it at the time, Beinart had a Christmas message for you almost exactly one year ago, in the wake of Donald Trump’s election:
‘F*** You America’
(Readers, I apologize, but I had to make the point!)

The President now has completed the first two months of what will be his first full year in admitting refugees to the US and we see numbers are dramatically lower.
In fact they are so low that if the present pace continues until the end of the fiscal year, September 30th, less than 20,000 could be the final tally.
As readers know the Trump Administration set the CEILING for this fiscal year at 45,000, but that is a ceiling, not a target!
I caution readers to not get too excited by the dramatic downward (so far) trend because if past years are any indication there is usually a lull in the first few months followed by a summer uptick then a huge flood comes in in September because everyone is pushing to reach the ceiling (with the exception being the year Obama and Trump shared the fiscal year).
In FY 17 Obama was pouring them in in the first months while in the closing months Trump was slowing the flow.
(See chart below through October 31 to see monthly admissions. Note the ceiling numbers and the ultimate admissions numbers.) And, do you see that dip in the middle of FY11, that is when those Iraqi refugee terrorists were arrested in Bowling Green, KY and caused the whole huge Iraqi flow to America to grind to a halt as they needed to be rescreened.
I’ll focus my attention on the numbers in this fiscal year which includes the months of October and November combined.
For the first two months of FY18 we admitted 3,108 refugees. If that pace continued for the year the total would be less than 20,000 (again 45,000 is the ceiling).
The resettlement contractors*** must be having hissy-fits as they ‘bid for bodies’ (aka paying refugee clients) as each must fight to keep its taxpayer-funded budget from imploding.
***Update*** The wailing began yesterday as Jewish and Lutheran refugee contractors saw the numbers, see here. The Lutherans esp. need the cold hard cash refugees represent because they have some funny-money problems going on there, here.
So what do the Muslim numbers look like?
There is no question that the Muslim percentage of refugees has dropped precipitously this fiscal year, again see Leahy for November.
Muslim refugees account for 16% of the flow this fiscal year which is way down from nearly 50% during some of Obama’s years in office.
My calculations indicate that of the 3,108 total refugee admissions for those two months, 487 are Muslim. That works out to about 16% for the two months. Wrapsnet has the various Muslim sects designated like this:
Amadiyya: 7 total, all from Pakistan
Moslem: total 362
Tops in that category: Burma 111, DR Congo 35, Eritrea 50, Ethiopia 23, and Somalia 107 plus smaller numbers from other countries (Those from Burma are Rohingya)
Moslem Shiite: total 45
Tops in that category: Afghanistan 13, Iraq 29
Moslem Suni: total 73
Tops in that category: Iraq 27, Somalia 19, Syria 22
It makes me laugh to see those Iraqi numbers. We have the Sunnis and Shiites fighting each other in Iraq and then we bring in the two opposing sides! Will they continue their centuries of quarreling in your city?
By the way, if you run your own numbers at Wrapsnet I encourage you to use the fiscal year numbers instead of annual year because this whole program is run on a fiscal year basis.
Have a look at the entry numbers for each month since FY2008 (a Bush year) below:
***And here for new readers are the nine federal resettlement contractors paid by you to place refugees in your towns and cities. These middlemen get paid by the head for their ‘charitable good works,’ so they have no incentive to ever see a reduction in numbers.
