Buffalohair: Refugee NGOs in the US Need Oversight, Part 2

Refugee NGOs in the US Need Oversight, Part 2

Non Governmental Organizations provide a critical lifeline for refugees being resettled in America. They provide a myriad of services including interpretation assistance until the refugee can grasp the English language. From filling simple forms to getting advisement on legal & medical issues, the interpreter is crucial in the refugee’s assimilation process. Unfortunately this aspect of the refugee experience also provides unscrupulous NGOs, interpreters and opportunistic refugees a golden opportunity to fleece the American system and we the taxpayer are footing the bill.

Social Security & Medicare and other social programs are on the brink of extinction. So you can imagine my chagrin when I discovered that foreign NGOs, most notably the notoriously corrupt United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), and ethnically connected NGOs were training refugees in the art of welfare fraud and how to scam the US system. Human trafficking NGOs in Malaysia assisted in the selling of brides to America according to a ‘bride’ that admitted to she was sold by her parents. Adopted teenage ‘children’ in some cases are actually adults in their mid 20’s & 30’s and not orphans with family members living within the nearby Burmese community. They are scamming wealthy well meaning American adoptive parents according to a bogus orphan who boasted about his fanciful life.

The UNHCR also provide bogus identifications (UN ID) complete with birth certificates and bogus tribe of origin for those who are not refugees and have the cash. Their goal is to ‘retire’ on the dole in the good ole USA. Antics out of Malaysia include bogus religious credentials so a person does not need a ‘real’ job, sham educational certifications and bogus medical documents that declare them disabled and unable to work. Trafficking has been a most lucrative venture for the UN officials and NGOs out of Malaysia. It is clear NGOs who cater to one specific tribe are also knee deep in bogus refugees who only seek to exploit resources from well meaning host nations like the USA.

The purchasing of brides was encouraged by a sham pastor who was resettled in the DFW area from Malaysia. Promoting large families to qualify for hefty food cards and welfare was also encouraged with the blessings of G*D by this pseudo religious iconic schmuck. This so-called pastor is collecting aid of every kind while living high on the hog on ‘tidings’ and he is not alone boys and girls. Some NGOs in the US who receives matched government funding or stipends has become beacons of fraud. They offer jobs and quality housing to tribal members while giving the real refugees little help or completely misleading them out of racial hatred. And we-the-taxpayers are financing these criminals without any checks and balances to insure where our money is actually going. The IRS would have a field day, if only they knew.

Tribally racist NGOs & interpreters formed an elaborate network to defraud providers & the US Government with the help of refugees of the same tribe. Refugees would claim they do not speak Burmese and request a tribal member to interpret even though they know the Burmese language, costing providers needlessly. Then the interpreter and refugee plot a course of fraud and deception to shake down the American system. For example the Chin tribe has over 20 sub-dialects and they must use Burmese to communicate between these groups. One Chin man told a Burmese interpreter he only spoke the Chin language though he was speaking fluently in Burmese. Scamming the system has become an art form for some so called refugees who came out of Malaysia, with the help of sham NGOs here in the states of course.

If anyone did their homework they would know which tribes are not being persecuted in Burma. In doing so this would also identify the fraudsters in the US who are scamming America. Out of western eyes is absolute racism against the real refugee by educated and well versed opportunists who claim to be refugees. And I am not a happy camper since I spent valuable resources and time helping them before I learned the truth. They are easy to spot because they are arrogant, demanding and pushy unlike the true refugee who is meek and fearful of authority figures. They also dress well by Asian standards and no strangers to financial concerns and know how to drive, well sort of. Most real refugees don’t have such knowledge about modern living except for political exiles and there are frauds in that group as well. Yes Pastor Paul, you pissed of the wrong American philanthropist. I would not have believed you and your NGO chum was capable of such criminallity against your own congregation, the US taxpayers and myself if I did not witness it with my very own eyes.

Tribally prejudice interpreters are guiding their refugee relations through the fraudulent process of collect disability checks for bogus ailments and in return they are rewarded with ‘gifts’ of food and cash for their efforts. The pocketing of offering money from their congregation and not claiming a dime while collecting hefty disability & welfare checks & food stamps is par for the course. American Churches who’ve offered a place of worship to these scam artists are not aware of the crimes these bogus pastors are perpetrating in the House of G*D.

Church elders should invest in a qualified interpreter to survey the contents of these sermons to insure they are not supporting fraud. Some religious colleges in Malaysia are nothing more than a copying machine at a sham NGO next to the water cooler. But again I must stress that the majority of the clergy within the Burmese communities I visit are legitimate and the love of G*D flourishes within their fold. Though I follow my tribal tradition I can feel the Creators presents within these hallowed places of worship and it is very humbling indeed. They would have nothing to hide if there was an audit of their congregation.

I was saddened by how sleazy some of these so-called religious figures actually are because I’ve also been duped into helping them in the past. How far beyond stupid is that? I wasted so much time and money on these moral maggots while the truly needy were left to fend for themselves. They say the wheel that squeaks the loudest gets the grease but I say the wheel that squeaks the loudest may not even be a real refugee. But like they say in Texas, you mess with the bull and eventually you’ll get the horn and El Toro is one pissed off bovine.  

Preying on the true refugee is rampant by ad hoc and tribal interpreters who shake down the innocent and trusting refugees on a daily basis. This is criminality that is being funded by the American taxpayer, you and me. The language barrier is the refugees Achilles tendon and a gateway or golden opportunity for unscrupulous interpreters and NGOs. Who would know other than the sham NGO, interpreter or the refugee anyway? Healthcare providers, social services and the legal system are language blind and must depend on interpreters and these fraudulent agencies and their minions slid under the radar with relative ease without fear of detection. It’s the perfect crime.

Doctors, nurses and other health care providers are discovering that some refugees are not who they say they are. I’ve heard of many medical examinations where doctors discovered a person was not the age claimed on their birth certificates. Well you can thank UNHCR for issuing bogus certificates to school girls making them 20 or 30 years of age and turning men into teenage boys. Then they are trafficked to clients in the US. Some bogus refugees are brother and sister who buy a child simply to appear like a family to speed up the resettlement process to America and to collect lucrative benefits. Other people buy children to use as slaves in the US, purchased from tribal families who thought their children would get a better life. The sex trade is teaming with hapless refugee women who were sold to brothels and pimps.

This is more common than people realize and there is a very real need to use DNA testing on ALL incoming refugees. DNA Testing, DNA Testing, DNA Testing. This is only the tip of the human trafficking ice berg. And it’s not just from Asia this human trafficking and aid abuse scam is being perpetrated for it’s a global racket. We-the-people of the United States of America are purposefully being targeted by very well organized criminals who’ve placed themselves in some of the top relief and refugee agencies in the world. But some NGOs are completely fraudulent and were designed solely for the purpose of scamming good hearted and well meaning Americans.

Many sham refugees are not from the country or tribe they claim to be from. But being a refugee is a more lucrative way to migrate to the US. With the help of sham NGO groups immigrants don’t need to go through normal channels to migrate to America. And most important of all they get cash, housing and benefits that were set aside for victims of war, abuse and genocide; the true refugee. In essence US citizens are doling out cash so scammers can move to America and live like kings & queens. They are living fat on American generosity while the truly needy are ignored or given scant assistance.

I’ve traveled throughout the refugee communities and I know there are multitudes of refugees who are very thankful to the American people for giving them a new and safe life. These numbers far outweigh the scam artists and NGOs I’ve discovered so don’t walk away with the impression all refugees are criminals. Unfortunately fraudsters are strategically located at sham & legitimate NGOs and work in critical occupations that interface with refugees like social worker, case worker, interpretation and the clergy. They target these professions with a vengeance and there is little back ground information potential employers can go by, other than what is verified by sham agencies in Malaysia who trained them in the art of fraud in the first place.

It’s a vicious cycle that has placed scammers in the heart of many legitimate agencies across Texas and the nation. They even formed NGO organizations that are more related to criminal cartels rather than refugee relief agencies, with our money! They are milking the system for all the cash they can get while persecuting the truly innocent refugee in the process. Racial hatred is their calling card and fearful refugees remain silent because of their inherent fear of authority figures. Refugees feel like they are still living in Burma because the immediate authority figures they encounter are criminals who shake them down for bribes.

True refugees from Burma fear they will loose what meager aid these thugs give them. It is not uncommon to hear of how an interpreter or case manager has taken refugee’s food cards, cash, threatened them or simply denied critical services such as employment opportunities and health care. Refugees endured physical and emotional abuse while living in constant fear they will be deported if they refused to give a ‘gift’ to these criminals. It is time for an oversight committee to conduct audits, investigations, interviews and surveillance on all phases of NGO operations within America. There must be a federal standard that is enforced to insure compliance under the law. If there is already a mandate in place then someone is asleep at the wheel or on the take as well.

Interpreters should go through a stringent screening process with background checks before they are placed in such a critical position of authority. There must to be a national standard and regulatory protocol that is enforced with regard to the professional interpreter. A college education must be required from an accredited university with legitimate transcripts that are accepted by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) or other accredited organizations. Interpreters must be literate and have knowledge of both the American & Burmese cultures, not someone who just picked up the language in a refugee camp, sham agency in Malaysia or a tent in Darfur.

Would you allow someone to perform heart surgery simply because they have blood on their shirt and claim to be a butcher?
