Whereas, when Idaho decided to withdraw from the federal refugee resettlement program, the U.S. Office for Refugee Resettlement (ORR) selected, under the authority of the Wilson-Fish amendment of the 1984 Immigration and Nationality Act, a number of refugee resettlement agencies to operate as the “state designees” for purposes of receiving and disbursing federal funds to refugees; and,

Whereas, one such Wilson-Fish sub-contractor is College of Southern Idaho Refugee Center; and,

Whereas, the CSI Refugee Center has been responsible for coordinating the resettlement into the Magic Valley over 5000 refugees since its inception; and,

Whereas, The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) depends greatly upon local programs such as the CSI Refugee Center when making placement decisions regarding the volume of refugees to resettle; and,

Whereas, in areas of refugee resettlement as diverse as Rotherham, England; Vancouver, Canada; and Minneapolis, Minnesota; refugee resettlement has resulted in a pattern of horrific sex crimes, and;

Whereas, in areas of refugee resettlement as near as Boise, refugee resettlement has resulted in an increase in terrorist activity, and;

Whereas, from a humanitarian standpoint, every dollar spent assimilating a single extended family of refugees is a dollar that could be spent making their home country more livable for all their countrymen, and;

Whereas, from a financial standpoint, every dollar in profit that CSI earns for trafficking refugees represents many dollars in external costs that is foisted upon Idaho citizens, especially increased education costs, and;
Whereas, also from a financial standpoint, every dollar that CSI receives for trafficking refugees represents a dollar that is ultimately added to the Federal debt, violating the belief of the Idaho Republican Party regarding government debt spending, Therefore;

Resolved, the signers of this petition urge the elected Board of Trustees of the College of Southern Idaho to discontinue the entire Refugee Center over a six month period.
