When it comes to the desperation of the Middle East Christian community, the American refugee entrepreneurs appear to be deaf, dumb, and blind. Nine voluntary agencies (“volags”) have a near monopoly as refugee resettlement contractors. And while there are many good and sincere people working in these agencies, for those who run them it is a multi-million dollar business, even if it is not for profit.
Among the heavy hitters are the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Social Services and the International Rescue Committee. Refugee resettlement is a mixture of compassion and business, with more regard for certain refugees than others.
The Obama administration’s program, whether by design or inaction, gives de facto preference to Muslim refugees from the Middle East over Christians and other minorities in the region.
