Prime Minister calls for Swedes to show tolerance toward the ‘refugee’ in-migration; cost

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 19, 2014

In order for there to have been this speech by Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt there must be some serious rumblings of unwelcome from the average Swedish citizen.  It doesn’t take a genius to see that there is only so much money to go around when a country invites hordes of mostly needy Muslim third-worlders to come-on-in as Sweden has been doing.

Obama with Swedish Prime Minister Reinfeldt: both have allowed their countries to be overrun during their tenures, share African ancestry.

See our complete (and now lengthy archive) on Sweden, here.

Looks like in Sweden, as in America, this election season immigration is the hot button issue every pol must address.

From The Local:

Swedish prime minister and Moderate Party leader Fredrik Reinfeldt called on Swedes to show tolerance to refugees seeking safety in the country in his summer speech on Saturday.

“Show tolerance,” he urged referring to the increasing number of people fleeing wars in Syria and Iraq.

“I know that this will cause friction. I therefore call on the Swedish people to show patience and open their hearts.”

Reinfeldt cited the cost of taking care of asylum-seekers as one of the reasons why voters can expect no more spending pledges from the government before the September 14th election. [No more "pledges," but what about the reality once the election is over?---ed]

“We will promise no more in this election campaign,” he said.

The Prime Minister, who was speaking in combination with a Moderate Party election meeting on Norrmalmstorg in central Stockholm, observed that as many people were arriving now as during the Balkan wars of the 1990s.

He furthermore expressed ‘astonishment’ at the spending pledges made by the opposition parties and questioned where the money was going to come from to finance them.

More…

See wikipedia on the “moderate” Reinfeldt here:   “He has revealed that his personal distaste for the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats party is based on his partly African ancestry.”   (Gee, kind of like Obama!)

Minnesota: Somali refugee gets 18 years for attempted murder

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2014

Why such a stiff sentence for ‘attempted’ murder of one gang member by another?

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune last week (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

A St. Paul man was sentenced to 18 years in prison for what a Hennepin County prosecutor called a brazen and unprovoked shooting at a Minneapolis food store last year.

Zakaria Yusuf, 25, was convicted of attempted second-degree murder in June. His sentence was the maximum allowed under the state’s sentencing guidelines. Judge Daniel Moreno said Yusuf continues to be arrogant and to have a complete disregard for other people’s lives.

Judge Daniel Moreno: Yusuf is arrogant and has a complete disregard for human life.

According to the criminal complaint and testimony at the trial, the victim, who is a member of the Somali Outlawz Gang, was standing outside the store at 201 W. Lake St. on Sept. 22, talking with two of his friends. Yusuf, who was known to associate with the St. Pistol Boys gang in St. Paul and Somali gangs in the Cedar-Riverside area, walked up to the group, pulled a gun from his waistband and fired it at the victim, hitting him in the arm.

The victim ran into the store and Yusuf kept firing, hitting him several more times. The victim collapsed and Yusuf fired one more time from the doorway, with the bullet hitting the victim’s arm when he threw it across his head for protection. He was hospitalized at Hennepin County Medical Center and eventually was discharged.

However, the victim refused to cooperate with the prosecution and was placed under court-ordered electronic home monitoring to be sure he would show up at the trial.

Meanwhile in Canada, a research project sought to find out why so many Somali youths in Edmonton were turning up dead, but it looks like the same old excuses—not enough opportunity, struggling with the cultural differences, blah, blah, blah.

Click here for our archive on Somali gang violence in Edmonton.  There need to be serious consequences for immigrant criminal gangs, maybe this judge is doing exactly the right thing with this stiff sentence for the arrogant punk.

By the way, as usual I couldn’t find a readily identifiable photo of the convicted Minnesota man, but found this one of someone (a mean looking dude) with the same name from the same city who in 2010 was arrested for beating a “good Samaritan.”  Surely they didn’t let that Zakaria Yusuf out that quickly!  Or, did they?

And, just think! You raised these ‘youths’ on your dime!

For new readers, see ‘Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis?’  Thank Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Service and World Relief MN.

One more reason for foreign nationals to legally stay in US—Ebola

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 18, 2014

Every time we turn around we find one more legal reason foreign nationals can stay in the US.

The one federal program (besides refugee resettlement/asylum) we have noted most often on these pages is Temporary Protected Status a ridiculously named program since it is rarely temporary.  We still have Central Americans living here legally ten years and longer after some storm/earthquake roughed-up their landscape.  Their “temporary refugee” status (allowing them to work and do anything a legal immigrant can do, and since they get drivers licenses, they probably vote!) simply gets extended every 18 months or so. See our complete TPS archive by clicking here.

In fact, Liberians have been begging again for an extension of their legal status in the US, guess they will get their wish.

I didn’t know we had this program—Humanitarian Special Situations—-which reader Robin alerted me to last week.

Here is a press alert from USCIS entitled: Ebola Outbreak-related Immigration Relief Measures to Nationals of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone Currently in the United States.

Release Date: August 15, 2014

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is closely monitoring the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. USCIS offers relief measures to nationals of those three countries who are currently in the United States.

Immigration relief measures that may be available if requested include:

  • Change or extension of nonimmigrant status for an individual currently in the United States, even if the request is filed after the authorized period of admission has expired;
  • Extension of certain grants of parole made by USCIS;
  • Expedited adjudication and approval, where possible, of requests for off-campus employment authorization for F-1 students experiencing severe economic hardship;
  • Expedited processing of immigrant petitions for immediate relatives (currently in the United States) of U.S. citizens;
  • Expedited adjudication of employment authorization applications, where appropriate; and
  • Consideration for waiver of fees associated with USCIS benefit applications.

To learn more about how USCIS provides assistance to customers affected by unforeseen circumstances in their home country, visit www.uscis.gov/humanitarian/special-situations.

NH: ‘Letter to the editor’ warns citizens of Dover to beware refugee resettlement

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 17, 2014

Remember the brouhaha a few weeks ago when it was announced that an upstart refugee resettlement contractor from Manchester, NH was eyeing Dover and surrounding towns as a new resettlement site.  We reported on it here.  A plan for a public meeting at which the contractor would answer questions was abruptly cancelled when publicity began to swirl.

After ‘pungentpeppers’ spotted this letter (below) we learned that the Dover mayor and council did entertain comments this past week (absent the contractor ORIS) and here is a story on the meeting at Foster’s Daily Democrat.   The tone of the meeting sure makes it sound like Dover is not ready to take the migrant spillover from an overloaded Manchester.

Here is a letter to the editor (Here’s what ORIS is not telling Dover) published yesterday at Foster’s.  The writer has a unique perspective having been born in Dover and then having lived in the Somali capital of New England—Lewiston, ME.  Emphasis below is mine:

This is the photo Newsweek published in 2009 with their Somalis- bring-economic-prosperity-to-Lewiston propaganda. The article was debunked by statistics (published by AP) and by city leaders, but as far as I know Newsweek never corrected its story. http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2009/01/21/i-knew-it-newsweek-did-not-tell-the-whole-truth-about-lewiston-somalis/

 

I have been following with concern the possibility of Congolese “refugees” relocating to the Tri-Cities. I was born and raised in Dover but spent most of my later years in Lewiston, Maine. Having lived through this situation in Lewiston, I believe I am qualified to provide you an honest assessment of what will become of the Tri-Cities if ORIS is successful. Although ORIS canceled the Aug. 13 meeting, do not believe for a moment they have gone away for good. Due to national immigration issues public sentiment is not on their side. When they do return expect them to be tactical in their approach, better prepared, and wield a heavier hand.

Lewiston’s first group of Somali’s arrived in 2000 during the dark of night, thus city officials were not prepared for the onslaught of people who arrived with nothing but the shirts on their backs. The exact number is still unknown, but most estimates are between 1,000 and 2,000. Twelve years later, the number is still unknown but is believed to be around 6,000. The numbers are not known because given their nomadic culture some leave, some come back, some don’t come back, and more tribes continue to arrive.

To believe the number of Congolese ORIS claims would be relocated to your area would be dangerously naïve. What ORIS is not telling you is that number simply represents the first wave. Adding to that is the multiple effect as many will have additional children and grandchildren and your welfare budget will spiral out of control.

The financial burden on a city with about 36,000 residents has been tremendous. State and Federal governments have not and will not pick up refugee related expenses leaving the residents of Lewiston to bear the entire cost and in very many cases at the expense of the working poor, veterans, disabled, and elderly, most who have worked their entire lives in Lewiston. When it comes to social services, expect the refugees to go directly to the head of the line.

If ORIS is successful expect your costs for education to increase much more than proportionately. Many of the positions that will need to be added are positions you do not have. You should plan for additional personnel to teach English as a second language. Lewiston had 50 students enrolled in ESL the year prior to the Somali’s arrival. The year after their arrival the number skyrocketed to 300.

Shortly after the first wave of Somalis arrived the city provided a school in their neighborhood for them to attend. You should be prepared for outrage from parents and children when the Congolese demand their children be allowed to attend other neighborhood schools thus displacing many children who have long attended their “neighborhood” school.

You should plan to increase your police budgets as well as adding additional police in your schools. The Somali and Bantu tribes are a latter day version of the Hatfields and McCoys. There have been numerous physical altercations between the two tribes as well as gang activity. Lewiston Deputy Police Chief James Minkowsky stated “we haven’t seen that it’s been fueled by drugs or alcohol but in some cases they seem to do it for the thrill of it. We’re not seeing the colors or the monikers but it’s still a gang mentality”. Prior to these attacks group robberies were almost unheard of according to police.

Those against refugee relocation should be prepared for broad accusations of being racist. In October of 2002 then Mayor Laurier Raymond wrote a letter to the Somali leaders asking them to hold off bringing more to Lewiston as the city could no longer afford the crippling financial burden. National media quickly picked up on the story labeling him a racist for simply doing what he was elected to do, govern the city.

In closing, reading publications such as The New Yorker and Newsweek would have you believe the influx of refugees has “revived” downtown Lewiston while many locals refer to the downtown area as “Little Mogadishu”. I would highly recommend you take the hour and a half ride up to Lewiston to see for yourselves what will become of your towns if ORIS is successful. A picture is worth a thousand words.

We have an extensive archive on Lewiston, ME.  Click here for dozens of posts on problems there.  One of our top posts of all time at RRW is this 2009 post—Somali migration to Maine….  We also have written many posts on the problems nearby Manchester, NH is having especially as the mayor and other city leaders want to slow the flow to their city now—something that is virtually impossible to do once the refugee seed community has been established.   In addition to the natural demographic growth and the secondary migration mentioned by Mr. Spellman above there is the role the contractor plays in resettling the extended family members of the first refugees dropped off—it is called family reunification or chain migration.

Comment worth noting: Reverse African out-migration through colonization of Africa by first-world countries

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 14, 2014

Isn’t that a novel and sensible idea!

Editors note:  We have a category (comments worth noting) here at RRW where we post comments from readers that you might have missed at individual posts or which came to me directly.  In response to our post From Catalonia to Calais…. reader ‘momodoom’ suggests “historically proven” colonization by advanced countries would make Africa a more appealing place to live.   Yes indeed!

Momodoom:

Africa in the late 19th Century. Is it better-off today? Obviously not! https://resourcesforhistoryteachers.wikispaces.com/WHII15

All these Africans (and Middle Easterners) fleeing their homes for the green grass of Europe! But really – who wouldn’t want to leave Africa? What does it have to make people want to stay there?

Nothing.

Well, what could Africa do to become more appealing to people? What could the world do to make Africa more appealing…?

Colonization! Historically proven to make Africa a more civilized place.

The U.N. should sponsor a program to allow any Western country in to various failed Third World states. They would “conquer” the country insofar as its legal system and enforcement, and the ensuing lack of corruption and greater stability would allow for investment – both from within the country, and from interested parties throughout the world, creating improved economic circumstances which might persuade their youth to stay in-country.

There would be a plethora of details to be worked out, but it would be a far better system than the one currently in place: Western countries propping up failed and corrupted states with aid money, who then produce excess population which then proceeds to leave said failed state to come and invade the Western countries.

I see this as a win-win!!

Can you hear the hissing now from the politically-correct one-worlders?

African migrant invasion of Europe adds new frightening dimension—fear of Ebola

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 14, 2014

A Chinese news agency is reporting that possibly five of forty Eritreans trying to get into Western Europe through Albania show symptoms of Ebola.

This April photo shows men from Syria and Eritrea arriving in Albania. http://smarkos.blogspot.com/2014_04_13_archive.html

From Shanghai Daily:

TIRANA, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) — Albanian police Tuesday detained some 40 illegal immigrants from Eritrea, five of whom have symptoms of the deadly Ebola haemorrhagic fever.

Local media said the illegal immigrants were arrested near the city of Vlore, in south Albania. The five who have suspected symptoms were taken to a local hospital for further tests.

There’s no exact statistics of refugees coming from poor and war-torn African countries to Albania. Official data shows that in the first half of 2014, about 500 Eritrean and Somali immigrants were detained in Albania. Their destination is some of the Western European countries.

Albania is a country from which migrants flee, but now Africans and Middle Easterners are fleeing to the country (at least as a jumping-off place to the West).

From Catalonia to Calais the Muslim invasion of Europe continues

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 12, 2014

Update August 14thHere comes the Ebola scare.

We have been so busy writing about the invasion of America that we have let news pile up about the mostly Muslim migrant invasion of Europe which is not being covered by the American dinosaur media.  Europe represents the ‘canary in a coal mine’ for western civilization.

While ISIS fights militarily for the Caliphate in Iraq and Syria, their Muslim brothers wage the demographic war in Europe.

Catalonia is a region of Spain seeking to break away from Spain.  From Breaking Israel News:

RRW geography lesson! Muslims want to reestablish their former enclave in Europe as Caliphate-building continues.

 

Muslim leaders in the Spanish autonomous region of Catalonia say they have been promised a mega-mosque in Barcelona if they support independence from Spain in a referendum set for November 9.

Officials from the Catalonia’s ruling Convergence and Union Party (CiU) are seeking the ballots of all of the roughly 100,000 Muslims in the region who are eligible to vote. “If you support us in the referendum, there will be a mosque,” CiU officials are said to have promised Muslim leaders, according to Spanish media.

The mega-mosque in question is said to involve a 2.2 billion euro ($3 billion) project to convert a historic bullfighting stadium in Barcelona into the third-largest mosque in the world, after those in Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.

The tentative plan calls for the Emir of Qatar to purchase the stadium, known as the La Monumental, and to cover all costs associated with converting the property into a mosque. The five-year project would be completed sometime around 2020.

The mosque would have an interior capacity for 40,000 worshippers and an exterior capacity for another 80,000. The mosque complex would include a Koranic study center, a library, a conference room and a museum of Islamic art and history.

The mosque would also include a research center on the history of Al Andalus, the Arabic name given to those parts of Spain, Portugal and France that were occupied by Muslim conquerors (also known as the Moors) from 711 to 1492.

Moreover, the mosque would be accompanied by a towering 300-meter (985-foot) minaret which, if approved, would dominate the Barcelona skyline. The proposed minaret would completely overshadow the spectacularly emblematic Sagrada Familia, a Roman Catholic cathedral that is situated less than one kilometer from the bullfighting arena. The spires of the church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are only 170 meters (560 feet) tall.

Catalonia is home to an estimated 465,000 Muslims, who account for more than 6% of the total Catalan population of 7.5 million. This gives Catalonia the largest Muslim population in Spain.

By way of comparison, if Catalonia were to achieve independence, it would emerge as the country with the third-largest Muslim population in Western Europe, in percentage terms, just behind France and Belgium, and far ahead of Britain and Germany.

Calais, France has been “taken hostage“:  Clashes continue between migrants trying to reach the UK (Shangri-La for migrants) and French police (hat tip: Cathy).  This AP story is from last week, but the riots are on-going:

Migrants receiving first aid in Italy. Photo from story about the clash in Calais. http://www.middleeasteye.net/news/dozens-hurt-migrants-clash-france-553817832

 

PARIS (AP) — Migrants flowing into Europe in unprecedented numbers are causing a tense summer in France, as clashes break out among asylum-seekers in overcrowded camps and police fire tear gas to quell the chaos.

Sudanese and Eritreans battled in the heat in France’s port city of Calais, frustrations rising as the Africans jockey for space while trying to sneak into Britain – the dream destination some 30 kilometers (20 miles) away.

[....]

Most migrants in Calais start the European portion of their treacherous Mediterranean journeys in Italy, arriving on boats in the island of Lampedusa. Last year, total arrivals in Italy tallied 42,000 – which was already surpassed by spring. With the year far from over, over 60,000 migrants have arrived on Italian shores.

EU immigration law says that illegal aliens (would-be asylum seekers) are to be processed in the first country in which they arrive, but obviously many are heading north and there seems to be nothing EU authorities can do.  Read the whole story.

Italian Navy rescues another nearly 1,000 migrants this past week alone.  From Gazzetta del Sud:

Pozzallo, August 6 – As many as 958 illegal migrants arrived in the Sicilian port of Pozzallo Wednesday aboard a coast guard vessel as thousands of people trying to reach Europe from Africa were plucked from small craft in the Mediterranean by Italian Navy and merchant ships, port officials said. The arrival of the 958, including many women and children, aboard the ship Dattilo was the largest number of migrants to land at the small port in the province of Ragusa since Italy launched Operation Mare Nostrum aimed at preventing loss of life in Italian waters.

[....]

They represented a constellation of nationalities from Africa, the Middle East and Asia including Egyptians, Pakistani, Eritreans, Syrians and Somalis.

 In Berlin, Germany a “crush” of refugees from News Round:

In July Berlin accepted 1047 new refugees. That is the highest monthly entrance for 15 years, explained health and Minister for Social Services Mario Czaja (CDU) on Wednesday. Besides in July approximately 900 further asylum seekers in the city arrived and for several days were cared for, before they further-traveled to other Federal states. In the first seven months approximately 5000 refugees came to Berlin, for the entire year count Czaja on an entrance of altogether 10,000 humans.

The refugee crush places the city before large challenges, said the senator. After the Königsteiner key, which regulates the distribution of asylum seekers on the Federal states, must take up Berlin five percent of all refugees, who place a request for asylum in Germany. The Federal Office for migration expects 200.000 applicants in this year.

And the beat goes on…..with no end in sight because no one seems to have the will to fight it!

[Alas, the canary is passed out, near death, on the floor of its cage.]

Maine: Rwandan war criminal sneaks across US/Canada border

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 9, 2014

It is not just our southern border being invaded. Here is news from Maine from earlier this past week.

Locals spotted the Rwandan near Houlton, Maine. He had been denied refugee status in Canada.

From Reuters at Yahoo.news:

BOWDOINHAM Maine (Reuters) – A Rwandan man accused of war crimes was arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol in northern Maine after a local citizen reported a “suspicious person” walking near the Canadian border, law enforcement officials said on Thursday.

Jean Leonard Teganya, 42, a Rwandan who authorities said had violated international law and the Canadian Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act, walked across the border into the United States illegally on Sunday when he was spotted, according to a statement issued by the Department of Homeland Security.

He was later detained and processed for removal from the United States, a spokeswoman said.

Read it all.

And, here is another story on the apprehension.  See map here of where Houlton, Maine borders Canada.

This is not our first Rwandan war criminal by any means.  We posted extensively on a multi-million dollar federal trial in New Hampshire which ended last summer with a prison sentence for a Rwandan woman who lied to get into the US as a refugee but was then found to be a war criminal (and is alleged to have killed a nun).  See that post here and follow links back.

VDARE: Ethiopian refugee allegedly brutally murdered 97-year old military vet last month

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 8, 2014

You can read the whole dreadful story by Nicholas Stix at VDARE, here (Hat tip: Ed).  This is the opening paragraph:

Mugshot of murder suspect Ngor Makuey

War On Whites? As the United Nations, the Main Stream Media, and the President of the United States all demand Americans award “refugee” status to tens of thousands of illegals, let’s remember the brutal murder of Rupert “Andy” Anderson, an American veteran allegedly killed by an Ethiopian “refugee” just this month. Ngor Makuey, who has been arrested for the murder of the 97 year-old man and the attempted murder of his 94 year old wife, is an immigrant allowed into this country because of his family’s flight from violence. He used this kindness as an opportunity to bring slaughter to once-peaceful towns.

Read it all.

One more refugee crime case where in addition to the pain and suffering he caused, not only did we pay for his resettlement, but taxpayers will pay for his trial and incarceration for life.  I think the cost of criminal trials of refugees and the cost of their time in prison should come out of the US State Department’s budget and out of the contractors’ hides.  Of course it is still all your tax money, but at least it might cause the resettlement industry to be more careful about who they bring to your towns and cities.

By the way, we have 1,556 posts in our ‘crimes’ category, here.  Happy reading!

Majority of Americans say US has no moral obligation to offer asylum

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 30, 2014

Somali refugees, like these in Kenya, are looking for a chance to get to the US. 53% of Americans say we don’t have an obligation to bring them, or any “persecuted” people, here.

 

Truth-be-told, it would be an overwhelming majority (not 53%) if the general public had any knowledge (as you do, as readers of RRW) about how the process works and who is getting paid to ‘help’ the mostly economic migrants (not refugees!) get here.  This poll and our previous post should send a message to Republican candidates this fall!

Here is the AP story (hat tip: Judy).  Emphasis is mine:

Americans are wary of granting refugee status to children crossing the U.S. border to flee strife-torn countries in Central America, and most in an Associated Press-GfK poll say the U.S. does not have a moral obligation to accept asylum seekers generally.

The new poll found 53 percent of Americans believe the United States has no moral obligation to offer asylum to people who escape violence or political persecution, while 44 percent believe it has that responsibility.

And more than half, 52 percent, say children who say they are fleeing gang violence in Central America should not be treated as refugees, while 46 percent say they should.

The responses expose a partisan rift, with 70 percent of Republicans saying Central American children should not be treated as refugees compared with 62 percent of Democrats who believe they should. On whether the United States has an obligation to accept people fleeing violence or political persecution, 66 percent of Republicans say it does not and 57 percent of Democrats say it does. [Republican primary candidates challenging the establishment, take note!---ed]

So that would mean that a whopping 43% of Democrats also believe we have no obligation even in the case of political persecution—wow!

AP goes on to define the word “refugee:”

To qualify for asylum, applicants must prove they suffered persecution or have a well-founded fear of persecution on grounds of race, religion, nationality, membership in a social group or political opinion. A refugee must demonstrate the same but, unlike an asylum seeker, seeks protection while still outside the United States.

Note there is not one word in that largely correct definition that says anything about “fleeing violence.”

About the photo:  Just so you know, we have resettled 6,080 Somalis to the US this fiscal year and 2,414 came here through Kenya supposedly fleeing violence.  If Obama keeps this up, he will soon catch up to George W. Bush in the number of Somalis brought to your home towns!

Check the FY2014 stats here.
