This story is a continuation from PART ONE where we discussed the odd existence of a subdivision of the United Nations known as the International Organization for Migrants. You can read that here.
IOM receives over 1 Billion in funding. 25% of that comes from the United States. Your tax dollars are going to statements like this:
We began last time by highlighting the tweet that shamelessly declared the globalist, pro-migrant agenda of the United Nations. This sounds like an alarmist statement, one that Alex Jones might utter, but take a quick look at these scare-caps:
Migration is INEVITABLE because of demographic, economic and environmental factors.
Migration is NECESSARY to meet labour demands and ensure the vibrancy of economies.
Migration is DESIRABLE for migrants and host populations alike – when governed humanely and fairly.

Any sensible person would wonder why their tax dollars are going to an organization that seems to solely exist to pacify their concerns about economic migrants. It would be rather normal to wonder who these employees are as well since these tax funded agenda pushers are unelected.
With that in mind, let’s take a look by starting with the simplest lie they told.
IOM claims they have only existed for the past two years. They were founded in 1951.
It seems like an odd thing to lie about but here it is:
We actually joined the UN only 2 years ago.

Whatever, but for what it is worth, this isn’t remotely true:
IOM, or as it was first known, the Provisional Intergovernmental Committee for the Movement of Migrants from Europe (PICMME), was born in 1951 out of the chaos and displacement of Western Europe following the Second World War. Mandated to help European governments to identify resettlement countries for the estimated 11 million people uprooted by the war, it arranged transport for nearly a million migrants during the 1950s.
Its credo that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society has steadily gained international acceptance.
The broader scope of activities has been matched by rapid expansion from a relatively small agency into one with an annual operating budget of an estimated $1.3 billion and some 8,400 staff working in over 150 countries worldwide. IOM currently has 157 Member States and a further 10 states holding Observer status.
