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.

Tennessee “UNWELCOMING” Because It Won’t Hand Over Its Jobs….

to the thousands of migrants and refugees that federal refugee contractor World Relief and the Nashville Chamber of Commerce say are entitled to realize their American Dream.

The problem they say (here and here), is that the refugees and economic migrants (who Obama has allowed to pass for refugees), who have degrees that could qualify for white collar jobs, aren’t “connected” and therefore, can’t find the jobs that are being passed around in the good ole’ boys networks.

Well guess what? The average college educated Tennessean can’t get those jobs either.

Insiders like Dr. Subhi Ali and Sen. Lamar Alexander secured jobs for their children Samar Ali and Will Alexander with Tennessee’s Department of Economic and Community Development (ECD). These insiders know that ECD is really Haslam’s publicly funded, political payback employment firm!

Samar Ali’s father called up the ECD Commissioner and asked that “he look at Samar’s resume” and lo and behold, she became an Assistant Commissioner at ECD! At the same time ECD hired Lamar Alexanders campaign director Alice Rolli. To avoid any appearance of nepotism though, Leslee Alexander had to wait until her brother Will left ECD before she could get the job as ECD’s International Director.

If the Haslam elitists can have special rules, so can the special clients that federal refugee contractor World Relief calls “citizens-in-waiting.” No driving taxis or working at the Tysons chicken plant for the highbrow refugees. First we were told that importing the uneducated Somalis to do the jobs that Americans won’t do fulfilled the humanitarian goal of providing corporate globalists with cheap labor.

Now the Nashville Chamber of Commerce says that Tennessee businesses are better off, even morally enviable, if they discriminate against white Americans, particularly Tennessee homegrown workers, if it helps the newly arrived refugee who has a degree.

Companies like Chipotle have committed to preferential hiring of refugees. They are in a partnership with one of the largest federal refugee resettlement contractors, the International Rescue Committee (IRC). Chipotle is a designated “preferred employment partner” just like Nashville is a “preferred resettlement site.”

So when politicians like state Rep. Tim Wirgau says “we got more people who don’t look for jobs because we keep handing them money,” or the political challengers who parrot “more jobs for Tennessee” are they okay with filling those jobs with refugees?

Make no mistake about it, Obama’s refugee contractors and the Nashville Chamber of Commerce want your children’s jobs, the ones your children need so they can start paying off their college loans. Were your children aware that the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) was hiring?

Recently arrived Kurdish refugee Shenwar Hussein took only five months to land his job with TDOT.

And while Haslam is pumping out “Tennessee Promise” and “Tennessee Reconnect” graduates, he and his cronies are enthusiastically importing competition for the jobs that he says is the way the citizens of Tennessee will prosper and prop up the state economically.

Why doesn’t TIRRC cough up some jobs?

TIRRC (TN Immigrant & Refugee Rights Coalition) wants more refugees to come to Tennessee and join the illegal immigrants for whom they want amnesty or what they euphemistically call “family reunification.”

TIRRC is in a great position to hand over staff jobs to newly arrived refugees and immigrants with higher education degrees. They have lots of Soros money and a new infusion of cash from the JM Kaplan Fund (the family of Welch’s grape juice).

With over one million dollars in annual revenue several years in a row, TIRRC has enough money to pay two directors and fourteen full-time staff. They have lobbyists and a Policy Coordinator. Imagine if they add a refugee with an elitist Ivy League degree – now that would make policymakers and apologists swoon.

Metro “Inclucivics” – white men out, racial quotas in!

The Metro Human Relations Commission is using “Inclucivics” to socially engineer the composition of the city’s workforce from the police department to the schools and every department and agency in between. It’s like affirmative action on steroids.

Nashville mayor Megan Barry says “it doesnt matter how you got here” so a little detail like being in the country illegally shouldn’t stand in her way of ensuring that all Hispanics are proportionally represented in Metro jobs. Once Mayor Barry implements the municipal ID program for illegal immigrants that she endorsed during her campaign, it will be a short step to changing Metro’s hiring practices. After all, to be fully effective, “Inclucivics” shouldn’t discriminate against illegal immigrant lawbreakers.

The mayor is also an enthusiastic supporter of refugee resettlement and representation from Islamist communities. After all, it helps facilitate Metro’s mandate that race and ethnicity are the most important characteristics for any job applicant.

It’s ironic that the phony progressives in Metro, who could have elected Howard Gentry as the first black mayor, opted instead for electing a white woman.

The professional left and the corporate globalist right are ideologically aligned against the economic interests of Tennessee’s citizens. It’s certainly one way to usher in “the New South.”

Gov. Bill Haslam Stumps for the Partnership for a New American Economy – any surprise there?

There’s a good reason that the Partnership for a New American Economy (PNAE) sits at the very top of “The MAP.”

The PNAE was founded in 2010 to push the idea that comprehensive immigration reform would “help grow the economy and create new American jobs.” The PNAE, is a powerful and well-funded coalition of business leaders and mayors launched by Michael Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch to influence public opinion and policymakers into accepting comprehensive immigration reform.

Other co-chairs of the “Partnership” include Bill Marriott (Marriott), Bob Iger (Disney), Jim McNerny (Boeing), Julian Castro (former mayor San Antonio, Secretary HUD), Michael Nutter (former mayor Philadelphia), Steve Balmer (former CEO Microsoft).

The PNAE poured big resources into lobbying for the “Gang of 8” (Go8, S.744) immigration reform bill which was introduced in Congress on April 17, 2013. Republican and conservative-of-convenience Sen. Marco Rubio was one of the prime co-sponsors of this bill. Establishment Republicans, the PNAE and its affiliates also supported Rubio’s bill.

On March 6, 2013, a month before the Go8 bill was introduced in Congress, Gov. Haslam spoke to the Tennessee Latin American Chamber of Commerce at an event held at progressive Lipscomb University. Haslam’s talk about immigration was:

“…as part of Tennessee’s Partnership for a New American Economy. That partnership is designed to bring together leaders from all political and economic sectors nationwide to raise awareness of what it sees as the economic benefits of sensible immigration reform.”

haslam pnae

This language is lifted right from the PNAE’s immigration propaganda materials, not that Haslam needed any coaching on the topic. In prior interviews Haslam said “he would like to see a comprehensive immigration reform bill enacted.”

What Haslam says is that he, and his crony corporate and elitist establishment Republicans considered the Go8 immigration reform as an acceptable way to get cheap labor. The establishment GOP also foolishly believed that supporting this legislation would curry favor with illegals, making them want to vote Republican. The globalist open borders leftists are smarter than that and understood that the Go8 bill would be our path for illegal immigrants to become amnestied Democrat voters.

Regardless, both the corporate right and the professional left lied about whether this bill offered amnesty to the illegals. In a 2014 Wall Street Journal oped, PNAE organizer Murdoch said that illegal immigrants who are already here should be provided a path to citizenship – better known as amnesty.

Haslam’s, alliance with the PNAE exposes his elitist disdain for hard-workindg every day Tennesseans. His endorsement of Marco Rubio as the presidential primary candidate echoed this stance.

Haslam stands with the group that ships the jobs overseas, hire cheap foreign labor, advocates for importing more foreign labor and helps chip away at the quality of life for hard-working American citizens?

In Tennessee, that group’s allies are better known as Establishment Republicans.

The Syndicate Behind Tennessee’s Immigrant and Refugee Propaganda Part 3

TIRRC and its allied organizations were heavily involved in establishing Metro Nashville Mayor’s Office of New Americans during Karl Dean’s administration. With Dean’s support, these same organizations helped develop “Nashville Next” the long-range plan to fully “transform” the city by 2040. The plan report was authored by Vanderbilt sociologist Dan Cornfield, whose wife is the Alinskyite ACLU Director Hedy Weinberg, also a TIRRC advisory board member.

These same organizations were in the newly elected Mayor Megan Barry’s transition team along with former Haslam appointee, Samar Ali. They remain active in her administration, working to socially engineer Nashville into the capitol of “The New South.”

TIRRC’s co-director, a former union organizer, Stephanie Teatro, says that just like in other sanctuary cities, the Nashville mayor’s endorsement of municipal IDs for illegal immigrants is a “forward thinking” (Democrat party) policy that would help illegal immigrants pass for legal residents. (illegal immigrants are often characterized as “residents”).

This is the same Stephanie Teatro, who last year testified in the state legislature in support of in-state tuition for the Obama DACA students.  The DACA program was just one of Obama’s administrative immigration end-runs around Congress. 

Committee members were told that Teatro had “extensive knowledge about the DACA program.” But, she didn’t tell them that these students are illegal immigrants granted a temporary two year deferred deportation. She told them that DACA recipients have a “clean criminal background check.”  Did Teatro, the “expert” know that months prior to her testimony, DACA status was given to a known gang member who then committed multiple homicides and that an earlier ICE raid caught twenty-four DACA recipients who had criminal convictions?  Did the “expert” just conveniently forget to inform legislators about this gap in federal vetting?

signIn 2014, speaking from Casa Azafran where TIRRC and its allied organizations are headquartered, Obama talked about his New American Task Force and his end-run-around-the-Congress DACA program. He specifically recognized, David Lubell, TIRRC’s first director and creator ofWelcoming Tennessee/ Welcoming America” who also won an award from the National Council of La Raza awarded.

Welcoming America will judge how progressive your community is

Nashville is among the “Welcoming Cities” in Welcoming America’s (WA) network. Last year, Welcoming America paid the Nashville Chamber of Commerce for an economic report to support their story that legal and illegal immigrants are the hub of Nashville’s economic success. The Chamber’s report looks strangely just like the WA website, suggesting a WA templated product that will be replicated by Chambers in other “welcoming cities.”

The real agenda of groups like TIRRC and WA is to mutate our communities until they satisfy a leftist open-borders, one-world, globalist vision of an ideal society.

Notice which new Americans are not required to pledge allegiance to the U.S. flag.

A WA project underway allows a locale to become a WA officially designated, “certified welcoming community.” Will the certification criteria include telling new Americans that respect for our U.S. laws comes first before their beliefs?

TIRRC’s Teatro serves as a “content expert” on the certification project and a bureaucrat from the Nashville Mayor’s Office for New Americans serves on the project’s advisory board.

Cities like Nashville that willingly abandon their Music City heritage in favor of being called “Little Kurdistan,” will be rewarded well with money by the federal government’s plan called “Strengthening Communities by Welcoming All Residents* and from public-private enterprises like “Gateways for Growth.”

In 2015, WA’s David Lubell was given the Young Global Leader award by the World Economic Forum. He also works with the “Partnership for a New American Economy” (PNAE), a coalition of business leaders and mayors launched by Michael Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch to influence public opinion and policymakers toward amnesty for illegal immigrants.

PNAE will steer “Gateways for Growth” money to local governments, chambers of commerce and non-profit organizations for plans that favor legal and illegal immigrants over the U.S. native born work force. Technical assistance from WA’s “Welcoming Institute” will help create progressive, non-White, anti-Zionist and non-Christian, Southern communities. “The New South.” 

Nashville has already been announced as one of the first 20 cities to receive this money.
