Trump Is Denying Refugee Report That Shows They Make America Billions


https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-denying-refugee-report-shows-153343341.html

President Donald Trump has long maintained that immigrants are a drain on the economy and a threat to security. He has insisted the United States should impose “extreme vetting” on refugees while fighting his travel ban in federal courts for the last seven months.

The president and his administration sought to back up their assertions about the financial burden of immigration, calling for a report in March through a presidential memorandum. On Monday, a leaked draft of an internal Department of Health and Human Services report found refugees, in particular, have netted the government $63 billion in revenue over an almost 10-year period, The New York Times reported.

Though department completed the report in July, it has not been released to the public. And those supportive of refugees think the internal study had been “suppressed,” according to The Times.



hmmm

seems as though Donnie doesn't like the "REAL NEWS" getting outLOL

apparently doesn't fit his biased agenda

the KING of FAKE NEWS,Donald Trump keeps insisting that everything is just great in Puerto Rico
the citizens continue to call him a LIAR

Aguadilla, Puerto Rico: 60,000 people—only 2000 meals. Trump keeps on lying.

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/9/30/1702908/-Aguadilla-Puerto-Rico-60-000-people-only-2000-meals-Trump-keeps-on-lying

Still, some delays are head-scratching. JetBlue Airways and Spirit Airlines have already flown aid missions to the airport in Aguadilla. But a government plane with essential supplies has yet to show up, according to Robert Casiano, the cargo operations manager for Aguadilla's Rafael Hernández Airport.

"Our equipment is fully operational. We have enough fuel for all kinds of aircraft; we just need the jets to start arriving. They haven't arrived yet," Casiano said.


a fully functional airport with private carriers making landings

but not one government aircraft to be seen ???


"your doing a heck of a job Donnie"Dead

Both Fox and CNN this morning were a joke.  I used enjoy reading the news but it has turned into a Social Justice Warrior megaphone.

Hillary is a dead issue. She was a criminal who endangered our national security and lied about many things and lost the elections. She is never going to run for anything again and win and how she feels about the NFL players kneeling for the anthem is beyond a yawn.

Last night I dreamed about football - and my only comfort was it was better than walking through the aftermath of a nuclear attack on New York - again.

Barack Obama was in the news for his controversial swap and we have more stories of pervert old women with younger men which I guess is a thrill for all the lurking cougars out there that fantasize about such things.

Weinstein now the scuzball of Hollywood gave Clinton money to battle Lewinsky after their xxx rated encounter and near impeachment.

Both Texas and Florida received top billing for the hurricanes while the fires continue to rage in Northern California killing people and no one seems to care.

The bottom has fallen out of the accusations that Trump was involved in any way with the Russians to influence the election and the memos from Comey aren't worth screen they were typed on.

The Democrats continue to talk about impeaching Trump and still will not accept Hillary lost. It has been nearly a year now. 

The minority - majority - the people who were minority and now are 51% of the U.S. due to rampant illegal immigration lost their effort to take over the government and get special treatment for anyone of color or religions other than Christian.

The tonight show host won't engage in Trump bashing and his ratings dropped 30% while Saturday Night Live still has a field day with fish looking pictures of Trump. I have yet to see but three decent Trump pics of him smiling and not looking like some frumpy nerd.  That's mainstream for you. Trump bashing has become an industry and those who say nay - can be hunted.

The news is no fun anymore. It is like cable where we have a token gay - a token transsexual, lesbian, and one each of racial groups in the cast because ... I guess for ratings. You cannot have an all white show or company.

There have to be classes on dealing with diversity which are mandatory in businesses now on how to deal with racial issues.

There doesn't need to be racial issues. People should be treated the same. There are jerks of every color and people are mean to each other no matter what race or religion.

I wonder sometimes what happened to America. They have pretty much ruined it. Alternate lifestyles are not natural and not good for our country.  People should not have to like anyone and not have to justify how they feel or why they feel it. It is their choice.

Nobody is happy anymore about much of anything. I don't live in an inner city and I don't want to. I am tired of watching news and cable about people who are so different from me - the young - the strange and the real loss of the American male of his manliness and strength to a host of lisping, men lusting after other men - which the biblical Old Testament used to stone to death. All of this being forced down the throats of ministers who feel it is against their beliefs to marry two men and goes against everything they have been taught for 2,000 years.

Free speech?  Depends on who is speaking. If you are a conservative or actually support Trump - even in social media you can be cut off and muted.

The problem with Social Justice Warriors is they do not offer any usable solutions with their criticism. Not a shred. No bills in Congress to do anything but give out more money for votes of people wronged as we try and balance trillions of dollars in debt and not cut anything to anyone.

No can do. I am a tolerant person. Whatever people choose to do in the privacy of their own home is their choice. Although some people do not draw a line with barnyard animals or dogs - women included. Greece did it. Rome did it. Caligula did it and what happened?

We are in the last days biblical or otherwise and those who ignore history and what destroyed civilizations are doomed to repeat it.

Disgusted. No desire to see anyone suffer, lose money, be fired, get hurt. Just disgusted.

So how was you week?  The media sucks. What a Monday it is.

Don't be so hypocritical, Med!  You have posted a huge amount of stuff about Hilary since the election.  I do agree it is old news.  She was stupid about her emails too - though probably not criminal.

As for the football.  Bring it on!  Any protest that eschews violence is exercising the rights those who defend the flag fought (and are still fighting) for.

Pretty much. Sometimes reality can be painful. Antifa are domestic terrorists which forward the agenda of Black Lives Matter.  Should we come out with a group called White Lives Matter we would be called Nazis and White Supremacists.  If we had a White School founded to have mostly white students - it would be bombed.

As I see it the White male ended up on the bottom of the heap, with the elderly veteran homeless males at the very bottom of the heap.

The whites today are not the whites that did all the terrible things done with slavery. It is not our burden to pay for or explain the "sins of our fathers". Yes, it was wrong. And yes - Jefferson and others had slaves. I can assure you if any group of color took over totally or another nation there would be White Slavery and as bad or worse than any ever seen in the past.

Already in demonstrations there is racial hatred for whites and police officers where people are killed because something happened in another state by someone not even connected to them.

Anarchy will destroy us. Everything we have fought for and gained would be lost by racial hatred exceeding anything ever dreamed of by white people.

People are afraid. It is true you know. Many people don't like what is going on in society or with the races or with all of the alternate lifestyles. They hate it. The surveys are wrong and there is a silent brooding rage over what has happened. That is why Trump was elected. They said no more minority dominance in our politics - we want someone to represent us.

The 51% are upset. All of the programs, handouts, everything could be ended and a lot of people living off the system have to go back to work.

Perhaps in the days before computers someone was disabled. Not any more. If you can touch a screen or type a line - you can work.

I do. I work in some way almost 18 hours a day and hardly sleep to try and earn a better lifestyle and help those I love. Many Americans do.

We deserve better.

Good God, Med!  

For every innocent white person shot by police there are more than ten black people whom suffer the same fate.  Of course white lives matter, but that is understood, acted upon and protected by a larger number of people.
Image result for his life matters

That photo from the "black lives matter" campaign said it all.  

I can't stop you from posting such racist things, because you also post important stuff.  I can't force you into introspection, because it is your own mind.  I can't even say no white people are harmed by black people, because some are.  But the numbers are not proportional, those who chose a victim by color are racists and and I am disgusted by the implied racism of your post.  

So I appeal to your better nature; put the bucket down.  The racial stereotype tree is flourishing with or without your regular watering of it

Sorry, Satori.  I do not want to steal your thunder (post) but, that speech was so elegant I have to reproduce it here for all AFTers to read.

I’ve been amazed and disappointed by so much of what this President had said, and his approach to running this country, which seems to be one of just a never ending divisiveness. But his comments today about those who have lost loved ones in times of war and his lies that previous presidents Obama and Bush never contacted their families, is so beyond the pale, I almost don’t have the words.

This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner–and to lie about how previous Presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers–is as low as it gets.  We have a pathological liar in the White House: unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day. The people who work with this President should be ashamed because they know it better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all.”


I may not be an American, but he spoke for me too.
