In Idaho several refugee resettlement companies have suggested that they will continue to resettle thousands of Syrians from the ISIS war in the Middle East. Syria is a Muslims state sponsor of terrorism. The Muslim war against Christians in Syria has been the worse genocide of Christians in recent memory. Many citizens of the United States in Idaho have fairly benign questions about who these refugees are. Are they the Muslims that have been beheading, slaughtering and raping Christians (and Muslims)? These questions have been asked of these organizations. The federal government and these private companies have refused to provide any information to the people of Idaho. The distant federal government forcing refugees upon American communities is yet another Intolerable Act.
Fed.Gov and these private companies have done this while “relaxing” the rules of allowing potentially dangerous people into our communities without congressional approval allowing massive immigration from nations listed as terrorist sponsoring states “…In February, the State Department moved to ease the rules that protect the U.S. from accepting refugees with potential ties to terrorist organizations. The rules were seen as “too strict” by the refugee-resettlement groups that lobby Congress and the administration to continuously let in more Muslims from the war-torn Middle East.”
It is interesting to me that when Idaho was accepting thousands of refugees from Asia without controversy no one gave Idaho the humanitarian award of the year. Now that citizens of Idaho have simple questions about refugees from the worse genocide of Christians in modern times, refugees that several rich and advanced Middle East nations refused to accept people scream the word, racist. I thought to do my very basic research of the issue and the players.
The Idaho State funded College of Southern Idaho Refugee Program (CSIRP) is one of the primary refugee entities in the State of Idaho. CSIRP has settled thousands of refugees in Idaho since 1984. During that time, it has settled thousands of “boat people” or Laotian families and thousands of Czechoslovakian families, with little to no controversy. When is the last time you heard of a angry Buddhist cutting someone’s head off at work? The CSIRP is now affiliated with the United States Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI).
The CSIRP receives monies from the Idaho Office of Refugees (IOR) and directly from the federal government through the USCRI. The current CSIRP director appears to be a person named Zeze Rwasama. Since 1984, the resettlement center has settled over 5,000 people into Magic Valley, Idaho. Many recent immigrants are Arab-speaking Muslims from Iraq and Iran, others are Muslims from Bosnia.
The CSIRP provides money to the Magic Valley school district to help settle these Muslims in Idaho. The Magic Valley school district has students that now speak over 20 different languages. Per 990 filings it appears that the Mountain State Group provides less than 100K to the school district annually.
Once refugees are resettled in Idaho, they immediately qualify for massive State and federal welfare such as medical (Medicaid), dental (Idaho Smiles) and food (WIC program). This is in addition to tax-payer subsidized housing that is provided for them. They also receive tax-payer subsidized cash from both the Federal and State governments in the form of Transitional Refugee Assistance (TRA) or Matching Grant (MG). Thus many refugees come from a 3rd world living conditions to government provided “poverty” in the US, which is often considered a huge improvement of quality of life. The federal government immediately makes them legal permanent residents of the US. Idaho provides them State driver licenses. The day they arrive they can legally purchase weapons with taxpayer provided money.
It is also noteworthy that CSIRP is the only provider of refugee services for South-Central Idaho, but it is not the only company in the business of importing Muslim refugees. The Mountain States Group with a contract with the federal government is resettling these type of refugees all over the Rocky Mountain States. “…90 percent of the money used by these [organizations] for resettling refugees comes from federal grants. They operate like government contractors in the lucrative resettlement business under the guise of providing “charity.” –WND. There are four refugee resettlement agencies in Idaho. Three of them are located in the capital of Idaho Boise.

Idaho has its State authorized governmental entity called the Idaho Office for Refugees or IOR. This Idaho State entity hands out grant money from the Fed.Gov to different organizations in Idaho to resettle refugees. This office appears to be a completely private organization. As of OCT2012 IOR) resettlement Director is Jan Reeves. Jan reports to Karan Tucker the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Mountain States Group now doing business as Jannus, Inc. I find it apropos that a progressive authoritarian company dedicated to moving refugees from all over the world, but especially from Islamic nations into the American heartland is named in honor of a pagan god. The Mountain States Group is under contract with the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement (ACF) which appears to be part of the Department of Health of Human Services (HHS).
As the number of Muslims refugees have been settled in Idaho has begun to significantly increase the welcoming citizens of Idaho have started to ask fairly benign and simple questions. A concerned citizen of Idaho was told by CSIRC that any information on refugees was considered proprietary and thus exempt from freedom of information request (FOIA). That is a public college in Idaho refusing any information to the taxpayers of Idaho. It is also interesting that these “refugees” are immediately made permanent American residents. It is as if there is no expectation that these “refugees” will return to their home nations after what drove them out is settled. Thus in truth these are immigrants.
It is unfortunate that they are so dismissive of the valid concerns of the tax paying citizens who communities are forced to accept these refugees. The same refugees Saudi Arabia and Gulf States refused. However, authoritarians are well, authoritarian and have no respect for the people they impact. They are the betters we are the bumpkins. Of course some information exists. Here is the Mountain State Group IRS form 990.
