Elaborate Welfare Housing Project for Illegals and Refugees

Dr. William B. Mount: Here is a development in Tacoma WA (Salishan) that was built for Illegal Immigrants! 1325 Homes created! Refugee Pay offers them $2642 per month in SSI benefits, plus Food Stamps, plus Section 8 Housing. You will see new expensive cars in this video. Wouldn't you like to get a free ride like the illegals?

Tacoma WA: HOUSING DEVELOPMENT - with a school and hospitial - built for Illegal Immigrants! Refugee Pay offers them $2642 per month in SSI benefits, plus Food Stamps, plus Section 8 Housing. 225 million dollar housing project. Out of SSIs budget. You say you paid into SSI your entire life? Sorry. We've run out of funds.

What in the hell is refugee pay?

What conflict or war are they running from to be able to claim "refugee pay" in the USA?

Why are they not being deported on the first train that leaves town and allowed to even stay here much less giving them money like they are citizens when they are criminals? Sneaking across the border does not make you a immigrant it makes you a deport-able criminal.

They aren't being deported because we do not have a leader with any kahunas - he would rather have the votes. They are criminals, they have broken the law but yet WE have to pay for their wonderful housing. American born citizens do not have it this cushy and what they do have they have WORKED for all their lives. And he threatens to not send out SS checks. Talk about an uprising and yes, we will "call his bluff" as the doophus said.

Brett, have you visited my lovely state? They bend over backwards to provide the illegals with my tax money, and the whole state is run by 2 counties, the rest of us aren't represented at all. Just over the border in OR, they built a gorgeous apartment complex only for 'immigrants', the signs were all in spanish. It's nicer than most housing for the legal residents of the town.

A family of 6 can make up to $63,000 and be eligible to live here. It appears that someone in the house has to be a legal immigrant or citizen. These are gorgeous places -- much nicer than what we struggle to afford in the same general area. Anyone that drives to a welfare (and THAT is welfare) office in a car that's less than 10 years old should automatically be ineligible.

It's amazing to me how many people 'call' themselves Americans but are willing to sell their souls to be Euro trash, wallowing in their soiled disposables whenever it's suggested that they be productive & responsible. Gag me with a forklift please, it would be far more preferable than what they plan for the USA although it's becoming more apparent that 'We the People' can & will kick their asses all the way to whatever 3rd world country that will have them.

Clearly this complex welfare houseing for refugees did not just pop up during the Obama administration this was in affect way before he became President so point your fingers at the real persons responsible for this mendacious mess.It angers me to the core that our hard earned U.S. dollars is utilized for this purpose.

If you think this is false its not. Go into any US Social Security Office and there will be signs in spanish. You do not need a green card to receive benefits in this country. I am a disabled veteran. It took me six years fighting for my little check I receive. I had no income for six years due to my disabilities. But yet if you are a migrant farm worker with no papers you automatically qualify for housing, food, Medicaid and whatever you want. America is in the toilet due to the left liberals. Fight socialism people, its almost too late!!

Blogs For Borders has had several inquiries for source material on this post. We have identified that the post was by a Dr. William B. Mount on his YouTube Account which is linked in the article.

We have to leave it to the people of Tacoma Washington to validate or dispute the story. Research has shown that the author of the video identifies himself as a resident of Tacoma, WA.

As to other stated beliefs or reactions to beliefs of Mr. Mount those are not relevant to the posted video alleging the situation. People have numerous personal beliefs and the screening of the released video showed did not reflect those beliefs but did reflect a concern over the spending of Federal and State funds for housing "illegal aliens".

Others in Tocama, WA or who actually know about this situation are welcome to post their positions and source information on this "housing project." But ad hominem attacks on supported facts will no be posted.

In closing, as the poster of this referenced story on Blogs For Borders, I do not know and have never met the author of this publicly released video.

There is no such thing as "refugee pay." Most of the claims in this video are completely bogus, including that one. I live in Tacoma, and Salishan is a very nice mixed-income development. People who live in the subsidized rental units have to qualify, including proof of immigration status. Other residents own their own homes.

On the "refugee pay" myth:

While people claim their is no "refugee pay," then one could argue there is no "social security pay" The word "pay" would be better identified as "Payments" to a person by the Federal, State or by various organizations who have been funded by the Federal government to provide befits to refugees.

Refugees once admitted to the U.S. do qualify for certain programs and assistance and low income refugees do qualify for government furnished or financed housing as well as other benefits. While a liberal might use the word benefits, a conservative could see these unearned items as a form of payment.

The prior comment cited http://www.factcheck.org/2009/04/social-security-for-immigrants-and-refugees/ and claimed there was no "Refugee Pay." Setting aside that the Anneberg Foundation is not infallible and has leaned left in many of its "fact check" statements, note there is no mention of the words "refugee pay" being refuted on the website.

The question being addressed was Q: Do immigrants and refugees get more in benefits than a retired U.S. citizen gets in Social Security? their answer: A: This is nonsense. The claims propagated by a viral e-mail are not even close to the truth.

Unfortunately, they do not address that refugees ( not sponsored immigrants by families, etc) do receive social security and a multitude of other social service benefits and funding. Setting aside for now that illegals who should receive anything as they are "illegal" and committing fraud on the American taxpayers.

The previous statement used the term "Refugee Pay." The question is do refugees and exiles in the U.S. receive pay and benefits to assist them in the United States. The fact is yes they do! And, the amount depends on the need to assist them with resettlement since they are in fact sponsored by the Unites States of America and on the specific promises made to certain refugees who became refugees for assisting the United States in situations, including war, in other countries.

There are many variations in dealing with refugees which would take reams of paper and research to document. But just scratching the surface we find links like the following to government sites addressing "payments" and assistance for refugees - all paid by the American taxpayer. Often the funds are transferred and processed through state agencies closest to where the refugees are settled as is Medicaid, food stamps, housing and subsistence payments as is made for lower income or disabled Americans. Again, refugees are NOT native Americans or legal immigrants coming through the established immigration system.

This is why our country is going broke! These people are not even citizens of the USA and they get better treatment than some of us that have been here for generations keeping America strong! Neither the Dem or the Republicons do a damn thing to correct this treasonous error performed by assholes in our government, it makes me sick. If Nazi Germany can round up 8 million Jewish people back in the 30s & 40s (Holocaust an unthinkable Nazi plot) we should be able to rid our country of these bloodsuckers as well.

I would like to know how he knows where he is getting his facts. All I see is him driving around a neighborhood. He just keeps repeating himself and by doing so is trying to make it a truth. He is also saying that all the cars he is passing by are new. He has no concept of what new cars are. They would be new if this was the late 1990s or early 2000s.

Refugee resettlement act has been in existance since 1950s and similar acts are in place in most developed countries to help resettle refugees displaced by war and other disasters. To what extent we should help refugee is question, but if we bring them here, we have obligation to resettle them. One can say Refugee pay, assistance, or any other name, it has been on the books long before Obama took office. If any thing, he is obligagted to carry out the program, till Congress changes the law.

You are absolutely right in stating that many coming to America are criminals.

In fact, crossing the Boarder illegally from Mexico makes them a criminal automatically. Felons.

So why do we roll out the Welfare Carpet when they come here illegally, 1/2 a million a year?

There is a joke in Saint Petersburg Russia among the highest levels of the Government: "You can walk the streets of Saint Petersburg at 2AM because we sent all of our criminals to America".

It's true. I did walk the streets there at 2AM and it was safe.

Many of these folks coming to America are, however, very good people. When they come they are immediately put on some type of Public Assistance and they become arrogant.

You all see them every day - brand new Beemers, Mercedes - all paid for by you -- the tax payer.

Brand spanking new Tahoe Luxury Model - you paid for while you are having a hard time paying you own rent.

On the other hand - many who are sent here are criminals - and not just petty criminals either. I have examined several criminal records and they are very serious crimes - so - they why were sent here?

So they could clean out their jails.

The real problem is: Yes, we are a nation of immigrants from every nation around the world.

We give opportunities - not welfare checks.

For all those who came here legally and have worked hard it cheapens who you are.

Please see APFN for my response.

Please pray with me - visualize - that the Living God stops those who did not put into the system from collecting from the system unless, of course, they are physically disabled and cannot work due to a physical disability.

Thank you for reading this and Good Night

We are 5th generation Tacomans and this video is real. This is built with Tax dollars, whether it be HUD,
Social Security, makes no difference to me, it IS tax dollars, and YES it is filled to the brim with immigrants, and this place is built in the middle of the arm pit of Tacoma, so there is no incentive to move up or out. Where else can you live and get your gras mowed and have a rec center and be close to schools? In a country club neighborhood or here. Us middle income tax payers fight and scrap for every little thing we have to pay for others to take advantage. I wonder if there is anybody in this development working graveyard for 10 bucks an hour and babysitting kids all day. Why should they? Their skin is not white.

I have been disabled since 2005. I worked my whole life and thought I was getting a decent SSD payment, but it is not near what the illegals get, nor do I have the benefits they have. I am saddened that our country cares more for illegals than their own. I will never have a brand new SUV or extra money to spend, but I have my faith and that is what I need. Shame on our government.

Subject: Air Force One. Everyone please read this!!`

This is from Mark Knoller of CBS. The pilots and crew of Air Force One are flying more hours than a rookie on a beer run. They are tired of it too, and are adding more crew to Air Force-1, - I know this for a fact because I'm one of the instructors that trains the crews. Our company (Atlas Air) has had the Air Force-1 and E-4 contract for over two years and I've been doing it for about 8 months now.

Last year (2010) Obama flew in Air Force One 172 times, almost every other day. White House officials have been telling reporters in recent days that the Democrat doesn't intend to hang around the White House quite so much in 2011. They explain he wants to get out more around the country because, as everyone knows, that midterm election shellacking on Nov. 2 had nothing to do with his health care bill, over-spending or other policies, and everything to do with Obama's not adequately explaining himself to his countrymen and women.

And with only 673 days remaining in Obama's never ending presidential campaign, the incumbent's travel pace will not likely slacken. At an Air Force-estimated cost of $181,757 per flight HOUR (not to mention the additional travel costs of Marine One, Secret Service, logistics and local police overtime), that's a lot of frequent flier dollars going into Obama's carbon footprint.

We are privy to some of these numbers thanks to CBS' Mark Knoller, a bearded national treasure trove of presidential stats. According to Knoller's copious notes, during the last year, Obama made 65 domestic trips over 104 days, and six trips to eight countries over 22 days. Not counting six vacation trips over 32 days.

He took 196 helicopter trips, signed 203 pieces of legislation and squeezed in 29 rounds of left-handed golf.

Obama last year gave 491 speeches, remarks or statements. That's more talking than goes on in some entire families, at least from fatherly mouths. In fact, even including the 24 days of 2010 that we never saw Obama in public, his speaking works out to about one official utterance every 11 waking hours. Aides indicate the "Real Good Talker" believes we need more.

Related: Obama spends nearly half his presidency outside Washington , plans to travel more

Related: Vacationer-in-Chief Spends $1.75 Million to Visit Hawaiian Chums

Obama has spent over $100 million taxpayer dollars flying around in Air Force One, and probably another $100 million on his entourage. Obama is just another tin-pot dictator living lavishly at the expense of his subjects.

And we seniors have to "tighten our belts" because we aren't getting a COLA again this year... and none last year!
THANKS TO ALL WHO HELPED PUT THIS GREEDY WINDBAG IN OFFICE!!
