TIRRC: lawbreaking families should reunite in Tennessee

The Tennessee Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) says amnesty is “family reunification” and illegal immigrants are only “undocumented.” TIRRC, like most leftist groups trying to turn Tennessee a color other than red, is forced to work by deceit because law-abiding Tennesseans are very hard to fool.

Regardless of TIRRC’s euphemistic labels, the people they endorse, are lawbreakers. They are dishonest, having knowingly and intentionally broken the law to enter our country. There is no commitment to follow U.S. law like honest, hard-working, Tennessee taxpayers who are invested in their communities.

Three years ago in May 2013, Edwin Mejia, a 16-year old “unaccompanied alien child (UAC)” from Honduras, walked across the U.S. border. Federal refugee resettlement contractors take custody of minors like Edwin who enter the U.S. illegally. The contractor then releases the UAC to a U.S. based “sponsor” with little if any vetting of the sponsors. The US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), has the largest contract for these services, receiving $65.9 million in federal tax money to service the UACs in 2012.

Edwin was released to his brother Santos Jesus Romero-Mejia, also an illegal alien who was living in Madison, Tennessee. Actually, “80 percent of the the unaccompanied minors in its care to other illegal immigrants.”

By January 2016, Edwin was in Nebraska, where driving on a suspended license and very drunk and drag-racing, he killed a 21-year old woman who that same night had just graduated from college. The police requested that ICE issue a detainer that would have kept Edwin in jail. But ICE didn’t issue a detainer because Edwin’s “offense did ‘not constitute a crime of violence.’” So Edwin posted bond and was released.

He’s now on ICE’s most-wanted list for motor vehicle homicide, but authorities believe he has fled to his native Honduras.” Good job ICE, not.

In December 2016, TIRRC will will host the “We the People National Immigrant Integration Conference.” It will be held at the very expensive Omni Hotel in Nashville because they say that Nashville is “the fastest growing immigrant city in the United States, a leading ‘new gateway city’ and model for welcoming immigrants and refugees” (as engineered by social progressives and the establishment globalist right).

They will hold sessions promoting rights for illegal aliens like voting in municipal elections, “fighting criminalization,” and “comprehensive immigration reform,” the amnesty program being pushed by both the progressives and the establishment.

Their overarching goal? Turn a red state blue, but for now they’ll settle for purple, while their favored minority, the illegals, commit crimes against our citizens and escape punishment.

The Syndicate Behind Tennessee’s Immigrant and Refugee Propaganda Part 2

TIRRC and its allied organizations

TIRRCs “Countering the Backlash” report alleges that outside organizations have exerted a negative influence in Tennessee pushing and/or inflaming xenophobic, racist, anti-refugee and anti-Muslim rhetoric.

But who supports TIRRC? Answer: George Soros and his front group NEO Philanthropy that gave TIRRC close to $800,000. But even before TIRRC became a Soros agent, they were already advocating the most progressively left, open borders, lawless pro-illegal immigration positions, calling it “family reunification.”

Since the Republicans became the majority party in Tennessees legislature, TIRRC has focused on typical lefty political retribution. They have aggressively opposed the voter ID law, trained community organizers and agitators.

TIRRC’s former lobbyists and community agitators have started their own anti-U.S. organizations growing TIRRCs coalition to now include three that are Muslim-centric in mission and defending against the myth of Islamophobia:

American Center for Outreach (ACO) – started by former TIRRC lobbyist, Remziya Suleyman who brought CAIR to Tennessee to lobby against a 2011 anti-terrorism bill claiming it was an “anti-sharia.” Later she admitted that she, “never knew the concept of sharia.” ACO joined with CAIR demanding that the FBI purge its training materials of all references to the Muslim Brotherhood, jihad, sharia law, and Muslims. In 2014, Paul Galloway, took over ACO.

CAIR has targeted Middle Tennessee, as “arguably one of the most Islamophobic areas in America.”

CAIR remains a named un-indicted co-conspirator in the successful Holy Land Foundation prosecution for raising millions of dollars for HAMAS, a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. In 1994, CAIRs national director Nihad Awad, a regular visitor to the Murfreesboro mosque, publicly declared his support for HAMAS.

American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) – with TIRRC’s help organized a secret meeting with TN Department of Homeland Security regional advisor, James Cotter.

AMAC developed a partnership with TNDHS Commissioner Bill Gibbons and was invited to help train homeland security personnel. In 2014 AMAC featured U.S. Attorney Bill Killian who, on behalf of Tennessee Islamists, threatened to suppress First Amendment rights using federal civil rights laws to promote politically correct speech about Muslims. That meeting was advertised to the public and an outraged 800+ people showed up to protest. TIRRC claims that Pam Geller and Robert Spencer organized the protest but that was not true nor needed. People showed up on their own to show the federal government that they would not remain voiceless.

AMAC has taken up other political causes such as Medicaid Expansion and refugee resettlement.

Faith and Culture Center (FCC) – started by Daoud Abudiab, a founding member and former chair of AMAC now serving as chair of TIRRC.

FCC’s sole agenda is the promotion of “Our Muslim Neighbor,” a campaign intended to convince communities that Muslims make good neighbors.

The FCC had planned an Islamophobia conference for the fall 2015, but renamed it after the jihadi murder of U.S. soldiers in Chattanooga. Insisting that the Chattanooga jihad had nothing to do with Muslims or Islam, FCC renamed their event “Our Muslim Neighbor: Creating a Community of Inclusion in Middle Tennessee.”

TIRRC, AMAC and ACO are housed together in Casa Azafran, the building owned by Conexion Americas, a comprehensive and influential Tennessee Latino advocacy organization headquartered in Nashville. The founder of Conexion Americas is also the chair of the radically anti-U.S. National Council of La Raza whose name means “The Race.” TIRRC and Conexion Americas are both local affiliates of La Raza.

La Raza lobbies for Hispanic racial preferences, bilingual education, mass immigration and amnesty for illegal aliens. La Raza’s commentary and position statements characterize the U.S. as a nation with widespread white racism and discrimination. The organization has opposed most of the post 9/11 U.S. counterterrorism efforts.

In Tennessee, lobbyists and members of TIRRC, AMAC and ACO are indistinguishable in their political endeavors and the positions they advocate.

For example, TIRRCs 2012 community organizer, Drost Kokoye, was a founding board member of AMAC, a board member of ACO, and former civic engagement coordinator for ACO. During ACO’s last voter registration drive, Kokoye, a vocal anti-Semite who organized a Nashville pro-HAMAS rally, advised voter registrants that they could misrepresent registration information to better fit a political agenda.
