Religious NGOs Use Faith to Justify Lucrative Illegal Immigration

Radical activists were behind it all, and Alejandro Mayorkas was one of them.

There’s a colossal human trafficking tragedy tearing apart America’s southern border – and major religious NGOs are making a taxpayer-funded killing off it. By using faith as justification, these organizations transport illegal aliens into the dark underbelly of America.

“[A] United Nations-led ‘Regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan’ calls for more than 200 nonprofit groups to dole out $1.6 billion in cash debit cards, food, clothing, medical treatment, shelter, and even ‘humanitarian transportation’ during 2024 to millions of US-bound immigrants in 17 Latin American nations and Mexico,” Todd Bensman of the Center for Immigration Studies reported January 24.

We haven’t gotten to the alarming part yet. Bensman revealed January 30:

“A follow-up CIS examination of the more than 30 faith-based nonprofits among those UN NGO partners – representing Jewish, Lutheran, Seventh Day Adventist, Catholic, and nondenominational evangelical organizations – shows that the US State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) and the US Agency for International Development have been mainlining taxpayer funds to these groups, which then distribute them to keep hundreds of thousands of migrants comfortably moving toward illegal US southern border crossings.”

That’s right. The United States government is funneling taxpayer money to groups tied to American religious denominations to help implement an internationalist plot to inundate this nation’s communities with waves of foreigners. And the dollar amounts are not insignificant.

“A prime example is the self-described ‘Jewish American’ nonprofit organization HIAS of Silver Spring, Md. (incorporated in 1903 as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), which has pledged $17.1 million in aid to immigrants in at least seven Latin American nations during 2024, the UN’s RMRP planning documents show,” Bensman continues. “It turns out that in FY 2022, 47 percent of revenue reported by HIAS came as grants from government agencies, the majority from the State Department, but some also from the Department of Homeland Security, according to the group’s tax filings and other sources.”

Bensman documents a similar pattern of federally-abetted sabotage of the American people via Catholic, Lutheran, and other religious NGOs.

Radical Feminism at Catholic Charities

Perhaps the ugliest element of all this, besides the grotesque weaponization of taxpayer funding against the citizens who pony up to provide it, is the warping of organized religion in pursuit of a nakedly partisan radical cultural agenda.

“The highly visible Catholic Charities USA is not on the list of those working south of the border with this UN project, although the NGO and its many affiliate components receive tens of millions of dollars in federal awards to manage illegal immigrant transportation north from the border and resettlement activity in the United States interior,” Bensman notes.

New Banner Border CrisisCatholic Charities is indeed at the very heart of the religious NGOs illegal alien pipeline. A closer examination of the leadership there shows beliefs that are anything but Catholic.

Kerry Alys Robinson is the president and CEO of Catholic Charities. Robinson is a graduate of Yale Divinity School who previously worked for 18 years at the Leadership Roundtable, an organization dedicated to promoting the role of the laity in the Catholic Church. Female “empowerment,” including elevation to an “equal” role with men in a religion that features an all-male priesthood, was a core focus of Robinson’s tenure at LR.

Robinson’s X account and her many writings display staunch support for a trove of culturally leftist ideals, including fashionable progressive racial grievance, transgenderism, and a bizarre form of Catholic feminism more akin to Earth-worshipping paganism.

Her predecessor at Catholic Charities was similarly attenuated to the hardline political left. Sister Donna Markham last summer retired as head of the NGO after eight years of service. Before her tenure at Catholic Charities, Markham was best known as prioress of the Adrian Dominican Sisters, the Catholic religious order made famous by its “Nuns on the Bus” campaign to help a fledgling Obamacare 15 years ago overcome dangerous and widespread objections posed by pro-life Catholics gravely concerned over the potential for federally-mandated abortion “health care” coverage.

When signing Obamacare into law in 2010, President Barack Obama personally thanked the progressive Catholics who played such a vital role in making it happen.

These are the types of Catholics running Catholic Charities today.

Mayorkas and the NGOs

The same scenario undoubtedly plays out among the staffers at HIAS, Lutheran-run Global Refuge and the other NGOs facilitating the illegal alien invasion of America on the taxpayer dime. Lefitst politics and big bucks make a perfect marriage under the guise of supporting “refugees.”

Lora Ries, writing for the Heritage Foundation in May 2023, said it well:

“What started out decades ago as faith-based organizations supporting the State Department to resettle genuine refugees in the US after a legitimate application process has evolved into mass illegal immigration and downstream activities, creating an immigration industrial complex worth billions of dollars.

“Worse, those same faith-based organizations also advocate for more migration to the US and against immigration enforcement. They claim they are merely helping vulnerable populations, but these NGOs clearly benefit financially from more immigration in this corrupt money-changing circle.”

Imagine if the House Republicans now furiously trying to impeach Biden administration Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for “willful” neglect of his duty to protect this nation’s borders had instead thoroughly investigated his role in this poisonous religious NGOs nest before his confirmation hearings in 2021? Mayorkas was a board member of HIAS when Joe Biden appointed him to the role in a literal fox-guarding-the-henhouse moment.

“HIAS congratulates Board Member Alejandro Mayorkas on being named by President-Elect Joe Biden to be the new secretary of the Department of Homeland Security,” the group crowed on November 23, 2020, a mere three weeks after the November 3 election.

“A Cuban-born immigrant who arrived in the United States with his parents as a refugee, Mayorkas served as deputy secretary of Homeland Security from 2013 to 2016 and was director of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services during President Obama’s first term. Mayorkas was also a primary architect of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program,” HIAS extolled.

HIAS knew exactly what it was getting at Homeland Security. So how did congressional Republicans miss it?
