Meet the Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama Associate Who Will Resettle Palestinians in Your Hometown

Revolver, October 23, 2023

The war in Israel may send a million Palestinians to America. Progressives are already calling for the country to open up its borders to these Muslim migrants. Squad member Jamaal Bowman said last week that the country must open up its arms to Palestinians.


But it turns out that terrorist sympathizers help bring the migrants here. It was revealed this week that Homeland Security asylum officer Nejwa Ali previously worked for the Palestinian Liberation Organization, a body designated by the government Ali works for as a terrorist group. The PLO press office she worked for was expelled from the country by the Trump administration. She went to work for the feds shortly thereafter.

Ali is also a big fan of Hamas, using her social media to praise the Palestinian jihadi attacks on Israeli civilians.


Ali’s story should make Americans wonder: Who are the types of people welcoming immigrants into our country? It may surprise readers to learn that ostensibly Christian charities are responsible for bringing foreigners to small towns throughout America. The government works with nine volunteer agencies for refugee resettlement, five of which are nominally Christian. The nine are:

  • Church World Service (CWS) (Christian)
  • Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) (Christian)
  • Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC)
  • Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) (Jewish)
  • International Rescue Committee (IRC)
  • Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services (LIRS) (Christian)
  • US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI)
  • United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) (Christian)
  • World Relief (WR) (Christian)

Much attention is paid to the Catholic Charities and their efforts to aid migrants—legal and illegal—in America. Less attention is paid to the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, a group that was instrumental in bringing Somalis to Minnesota. One of those Somalis, incidentally, is the terrorist-sympathizing congresswoman, Ilhan Omar. LIRS is proud of this connection, boasting about it on Facebook.

LIRS, like the other charities, isn’t a mere non-profit. It’s an appendage of the US government. Over 80 percent of its funding comes from the federal government. In 2018, it received $41,631,000 in state assistance. The other agencies, with the exception of HIAS, also receive the majority of their funding from the feds.

LIRS proclaims itself as guided by a fundamental Christian purpose. {snip}


However, LIRS isn’t even run by a Christian. Its current president and CEO is Krishanti (Krish) O’Mara Vignarajah, a Hindu woman with impeccable globalist credentials. She was born in Sri Lanka and came to the U.S. as a child. She has degrees from Yale and Oxford. Early in her career, she worked at McKinsey. Later on, she became a high-ranking staffer in the Obama administration. She worked as a senior adviser to Hillary Clinton and John Kerry at the State Department. She finished her time in the administration as Michelle Obama’s policy director. In 2018, she ran unsuccessfully for Maryland governor, earning a measly 8.2% in the Democratic primary.

She then took her talents to LIRS in 2019. The group was troubled upon her arrival. The previous president was fired for mismanaging the group’s funds, which primarily come from taxpayers. Vignarajah appeared to put things in order and bolster the group’s connections to the corridors of power.

In a 2022 speech delivered at the University of Maryland, Vignarajah argued she had more power to bring migrants to the U.S. in the nonprofit world than in the federal government:


In the same speech, she complained about the Right’s views on immigration and how it’s imperative to correct this “misinformation.” She also shared her view that immigrants are the real Americans:


“The general perception that is really so problematic is this ‘otherness,’” explains Vignarajah. “Unless you are part of the indigenous community or someone in your family was forced here through slavery, someone in your lineage made a decision to come to the United States. I think that’s where it’s important to understand the truth, which is that ‘they’ are ‘us.’”


Vignarajah’s tenure at the State Department working under both Hillary Clinton and John Kerry is interesting for a number of reasons. In order for refugees to be resettled, they must first be created, and few secretaries of state created more refugees than Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton was a major proponent of US involvement in the Syrian Civil War on the side of the so-called Sunni Rebels (which included Al-Qaeda and ISIS), resulting in the creation of nearly 7 million refugees.


Although most of the refugees created by Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy misadventures were dumped into Europe, a healthy number had to be resettled in the United States, of course. Luckily, the State Department was just as obliging in resettling refugees into America as it had been in creating them in the first place—a perverse system in which Vignarajah played an integral role.

Indeed, refugee resettlement, particularly of Muslim migrants, was a major priority around the time Vignarajah worked there. In 2015, the State Department announced it would dramatically increase refugee intake over the next two years. Donald Trump curbed this increase upon assuming office in 2017.

Vignarajah was deeply critical of Trump’s efforts to keep out migrants from terror-ridden Muslim nations. In 2020, she was included among the voices deeming it an “Islamophobic” policy.


Vignarajah and her group became the face of the volunteer effort to settle Afghans in America following the Taliban’s takeover in 2021. She was interviewed on Sunday morning talk showscable newspublic radio, and several major print publications. She wrote op-eds on the subject for the Washington Post and USA Today. Vignarajah was the go-to source for the media’s effort to persuade Americans to welcome tens of thousands of unvetted Afghans.


{snip} In a 2022 interview with Baltimore magazine, she made no reference to God or the Bible for why her group wants more immigrants in small towns. She instead sees immigration as a vehicle for cultural enrichment, a necessary response to climate change, and the solution to declining white birthrates.

Baltimore Magazine:

Our approach to the refugee crisis is not just humane and empathetic but also self-interested. Refugees make our communities economically stronger, physically safer, and culturally richer.


We also need to prepare for climate displacement, which will be the biggest driver of migration in the 21st century. But we need to act now—and embrace the help immigrants bring. At a time when we have the lowest birth rate since the census started tracking it, record numbers of older adults retiring, and financial stresses on Medicare and Social Security, we need a younger, bigger workforce. Immigration must be part of the solution.

Nejwa Ali and Krish Vignarajah perfectly represent the open-borders regime. Neither one is loyal to the historic American people. Neither one cares for the things that made America great. They just care about bringing more people like themselves to this country to fundamentally change it. Vignarajah’s control of a Chrisitan group to advance this mission exposes the rot in the refugee industry.
