Are you sitting down! UN sending 6000 more Somalis to US this year

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 26, 2010

Update January 28th:  Rumor has it that we are in fact bringing well in excess of the 10,000-11,000 Somalis that we brought in 2004, 2005 and 2006 this year. They will come from all over the world. 

Can you believe it?  We are in the worst recession since the Great Depression; refugee agencies are scrambling everywhere to take care of the refugees they have.  Just yesterday the Department of State released the news that they are doubling the per head payment (from taxpayers) for each refugee entering the US. 

On top of that, in many cities around the world, the Somali diaspora is producing jihadist fighters.  And, we are going to take 6000 Somalis from one refugee camp in Uganda?    Hat tip:  Janet.

Why this particular group?  They aren’t getting along with others in the camp!  But, don’t worry they are being screened for Al-Qaeda connections.

The story from New Vision a Uganda web publication is entitled, “USA takes in 6000 Somali from Uganda” is as follows:

THE American government is to resettle 5,800 refugees from Nakivale refugee camp in Isingiro district to the United States, Prosy Katura, the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) protection officer, has revealed.

Katura said a team has already been sent to Nakivale to scrutinise the refugees to ensure they have no links with al-Qaeda, an extremist group. The American taskforce at the camp will also study files of individual refugees since they arrived in Uganda.

During a meeting with the Germany ambassador to Uganda, Reinhard Buchholz, who visited the camp on Friday, Katura said the exercise under the “expedited Somali resettlement programme” should be completed by September. “We have so far scrutinised about 2,000 Somalis out of 5,800 who are living in Nakivale.”

Explaining the reason of resettling Somalis to the US, Katura said Somali refugees have failed to integrate with other refugee groups living in Nakivale and with the local communities because of their unique language and culture.  [This is insane, they can't get along with other African people but they are going to jump into the mythical American melting pot and come out as just good old regular Americans!]

She added that the group cannot go back to Somalia since the country is still unstable and they fear to be killed and persecuted. Nakivale has about 470,000 refugees from Somalia, Rwanda, Sudan, Congo, Burundi, Kenya and Eritrea. There are other refugees in Uganda, in camps of Kyangwari, Orukinga and Kyaka.

During Buchholz’s visit, Burundian refugees also demanded to be resettled to a third country, arguing that they, too, have stayed in the camp for a long time and cannot be repatriated.The United States resettles refugees largely according to country of origin as well as the urgency of the situation.

Even though the US remains the world’s largest country of resettlement, its refugee admissions have been steadily declining over the last decade, particularly since the September 11 terrorist attacks. The number of refugees admitted went down from 132,000 in 1992 to about 28,000 in 2003.*

Resettlement patterns in American states are generally dominated by certain ethnic communities. Many Somali and Ethiopian refugees have been resettled in Minnesota.

The UNHCR is a partner in the US refugee resettlement programme and identifies those refugees most in need of urgent resettlement.

The agency has identified three “durable solutions” to refugee concerns: voluntary return to the country of origin, local integration in the host community, or resettlement to a third country.

Resettlement is most often promoted by UNHCR “when individual refugees are at risk, or when there are other reasons to help them leave the region.”

* These numbers are very deceptive. Yes, right after 9/11 our refugee numbers dropped precipitously (gee, do you think someone was scared we might be letting in Islamic extremists?) but they have steadily risen ever since.   In FY2009 we admitted 74,642.  The Obama Administration’s goal for FY2010 is 80,000!

Now, check out the numbers for Somalis since 9/11 here.  In each year 2004, 2005 and 2006 we brought in excess of 10,000 Somalis to the US.   The numbers only slowed when the State Department realized how deep the fraud was in the family reunification program that was closed in 2008 for Somalis and has yet to be reopened.

By the way, these numbers don’t reflect Somalis who have come across our borders illegally, some of whom have been granted asylum.

What should you do if you have a problem with this?   Write to Asst. Secretary of State, Eric Schwartz, let him know how you feel and be sure to copy your US Senators and Congressman.  And, come to think of it, you should send your letters to the Dept. of Homeland Security as well:

Secretary Janet Napolitano
Department of Homeland Security
U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Endnote:  I just last night wrote this update on the Somali murder in Ft. Morgan, CO, but use our search function for ‘Somali crime’ or ‘Somali murder’ or ‘Somali gangs’ for lots more information on how the Somalis are melting into American society.  Here is just one post about Somali refugees turned into jihadist fighters in the US.  Canada, Sweden, Denmark and the UK have all reported similar terrorist recruitment within the Somali diaspora.

    These are refugees who were displaced from their homes by civil-war. they have witnessed torture and killing against their family members. Moreover, Alshabab is a direct threat to these innocent people. I assure you that these people are Not coming to America for economic reasons. Because before the Somali civil-war, only few Somali students were present in Eastern Part of United States.Somalia is a small country with small population. If its resources are well managed and government is established there will not be Somali people going out of their country. By the way, I am Somali American, Tax Payer, and college student. I believe that I will be a valuable contributor to the society.

  2. I was glad to here this resettlement somali.really somalils are not economic refugee because there is big influence of jihadist who can force all the somalis who lives in somali because of there power using money or gun I am sure no one can survive if they have this power using so somalis they need support from all the world we shall thank US government for there help s.

      They why the hell are your children not integrating into US culture and instead going go Yemen in numbers to become Jihadis or how about the 19 year old that was going to blow up Seattle Thanksgiving celebrators. Tell me again, why we should allow so many Somalis to enter this country?

    it’s pretty much a given that, with the opening up of this program, there will be a flood of Somalis from pretty much everywhere infiltrating the camp in Uganda and claiming status. As for the ability of “screeners” to weed out jihadists… take a wild guess (not remotely possible). This is a HUGE and foolish mistake.

  28. [...] Somali Refugees Headed Your Way Taxpayers I convinced that our country is insane in many ways. Recently I read on a website called Refugee Resettlement Watch – 6000 more Somali refugees will be ending to the U.S.A. – who pays for them? We do! The Department of State released the news that they are doubling the per head payment (from taxpayers) for each refugee entering the US.   I urge you to read more here -http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2010/01/26/are-you-sitting-down-un-sending-6000-more-s…6.

      Hey Guys, Some of you need to cut the crap and stop the spreading the hate…America after all is land of immigrants. Every year millions of immigrants around the world come to America as same as many of your ancestors came to the USA. As long as Somalis are coming to America legillay, what is wrong with that? Some of you say “Somali-Muslims” yes, of course, majority of Somalis are Muslims, but that does not mean they should not be here. America is not a land for a particular ethnicity or religion…you ingnorant crazies. By the way, if these Somalis come here, as many other Somalis who came to USA like me…they will not depend on “welfare”, majority of them will be productive-tax paying citizens of our country (USA). May be we need to talk about illigal immigration instead!

    There need to be standards instituted. Refugee’s that are seeking asylum should be queued up and those that are NOT the same religion as the country that they are looking to quit, should be put to the front of the line if they are looking for refugee status from anywhere that. An example would be, if you are coming from Syria or EGYPT, then if you are Muslim you go to the back of the line. If you are Russian, then if you are Greek Orthodox, then you go to the back of the line. I’m sure that our government would find every way to mess this up (I feel ashamed that I believe this about my country), but if we don’t scream for this, then we are truly not free from this UBER government control.
