President Donald Trump said it was a “moment of profound vindication” when the Supreme Court made the decision to keep his travel ban in place, overthrowing a ruling from a lower court that sought to rebuke the executive power of the President.
“[This] Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution. The Supreme Court has upheld the clear authority of the President to defend the national security of the United States. In this era of worldwide terrorism and extremist movements bent on harming innocent civilians, we must properly vet those coming into our country,” Trump said yesterday.
But not everyone is as thrilled with this news as the President. So-called human rights organizations soak up taxpayer funds to resettle migrants into unsuspecting American communities. One of these organizations, the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), has sued the Trump administration from the start to prevent the implementation of his common sense border security policies. They are telling their activists to hit the streets now that the nation’s highest court has had their say.
“As one of the first organizations to challenge the refugee and Muslim bans in court last year, HIAS will continue to stand up and speak out about what America can and should be as a country,” President and CEO Mark Hetfield said in an email to their group’s supporters.
Hetfield told HIAS members to join #NoMuslimBanEver rallies in the email. These rallies are being organized by infamous anti-American leftist agitator Linda Sarsour and her organization, MPower Change—Muslim Grassroots Movement. Sarsour was publicly castigated for her support of anti-semitic figures, but that hasn’t stopped this explicitly Jewish organization from throwing their support behind her.
“Together, we will continue fighting to ensure that this period is merely another short, dark chapter temporarily interrupting America’s history as a nation that accepts people without judging them by faith or national origin. HIAS and the American Jewish community have seen such discrimination trap members of our own community, and we will not stand by silently as it happens to others,” Hetfield said.
Refugee resettlement watchdog Ann Corcoran pointed out in her blog that the HIAS receives a stunning 59 percent of its annual revenue from the US taxpayer. They received almost $25 million from Uncle Sam during fiscal year 2016 alone, but conveniently never mentions the source of their funding in their humanitarian appeals.
“The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society is one of nine federal contractors that the feds pay to place refugees in your towns and cities,” Corcoran said.
She also noted that many HIAS executives, including CEO Hetfield, receive cushy six-figure salaries for their role in the refugee resettlement program. Flooding America with the third-world is big business for “nonprofit organizations” like HIAS, and Trump is cutting that off. Perhaps Trump could take a page from Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and just give these subversive agencies the boot before they do more damage.
