Refugee Resettlement Watch

Crime rate up in Omaha Somali neighborhood

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 28, 2011

Gee, I wonder who the criminals are if they could communicate with the Somali refugees?  This story on the heals of the Minneapolis Somali crime story, here, yesterday.

From Action 3 News:

Omaha, NE- New steps may help keep Somali refugee families, who came to Omaha to find safety, safer. Some have said the crime in South Omaha is so bad, that they don’t even feel safe stepping outside or sending their kids to school.

There were six attacks in two days near the Southside Terrace Apartments, run by the Omaha Housing Authority. The attackers told the families they would come back and kill them if they talk to the police. The families are afraid to open the door, never knowing if the attackers are coming back for more.

I wonder if its going to be “chaotic anarchy” like it already is in another Nebraska city, Grand Island, here.

Who is the resettlement agency in Omaha that is placing refugees in a dangerous neighborhood?

    Ann, once again your inflammatory rhetoric is unwarranted. Resettlement agencies are not placing refugees in the Southside Terrace. It is subsidized housing run by the OHA. Refugees are moving there of their own accord. You know, part of that freedom to go wherever they please. Sort of the same freedom you and I enjoy.

    The article doesn’t say who the “attackers” are. The media hides what it doesn’t want Americans to know. It’s safe to assume the anonymous “attackers” are Somalis or some other 3rd world rival immigrant group.

    This kind of ethnic rivalry and violence will only escalate as more immigrants are allowed into America, whether they’re sneaking across the border in the middle of the night or arriving by the planeload at airports. Here we see how Americans are forced to throw more money down a bottomless rathole to keep Somalis “safe” from rival gangs. From the linked article:

    “For the next 30 days, police will patrol Southside around the clock. The Omaha Housing Authority will also increase its own security.

    The housing authority board has also donated office space to translators, to speed up communication between the authority and
    residents.

    Families will also get a list of emergency phone numbers, including 911 and those of Omaha Housing Authority managers.”

    What about keeping Americans safe from violent immigrants? What about the costs to taxpayers? Why is America importing violence from the 3rd world?

    As one more American low-income housing complex is turned over to hostile demanding foreigners, Americans are being driven out of their own low-income housing, neighborhoods, cities, and country.

    The American people don’t need this with our borders still not secure and now the government is bring in Somali refugees, I am sure that they don’t know if these people are terrors or not and if they are family.
    The American people don’t have jobs but these people get jobs or Welfare.
    I am not going too buy anything that has the Swiff name on it. The government doesn’t take into condideration of how this affects a neighborhood, schools, police and other situations where they don’t speak English. Now we will have too be subject too our government printing everything in the language and dialect. GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY

    THE BUSINESS SHOULD NOT HAVE TOO BE SUBJECT TOO THEIR RELIGIOUS LAWS. THE PLANT SHOULD HAVE NOT HIRED THEY BACK WHEN THEY TOOK OFF TIME FOR THEIR PRAYER. PRAYER TIME IN A BUSINESS IS OR SHOULD BE REFUSED. MOST OF THESE PLANTS ARE UNION AND PROBABLY BACKED BY OBAMA

    Your headline is misleading by implying Somalis are responsible for the increased crime. Do you think it’s possible, just possible, that Somalis have moved from their original placement location since most have been in the U.S. for over 5 years? I have a feeling that residents of any city who live in concentrated public housing may face similar problems. As with any first generation of immigrants, they will struggle through the ranks of poverty and the troubles that come with it for any person in that situation.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
