Canada: Iraqi woman lies on refugee application, leaves some kids behind, and now blames Canada for her troubles

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 16, 2014

Oh brother, every time you see a case like this one it further reminds us of the schemers involved in the refugee racket (and not just the refugees, but their ‘advocates’ as well).

From CBC News (hat tip: ‘Pungentpeppers’):

Suhailau Hussan is a grieving mother ensnared in a global phenomenon.

The “grieving” mother (right) didn’t tell authorities she was remarried with more kids! She wants them in Canada where taxpayers can take care of them all! Here is an option, they could all reunite in the Middle East!

She has a child in Lebanon, a country overflowing with refugees. Two others are in Iraq, too destitute to seek sanctuary. And two others are with her here in Winnipeg….but are facing deportation back to Syria.

“I need help from the government, I need help,” Hussan says in Arabic, through interpreter Ahlam Jasim. “I could be patient with everything, just if I know….my family safe. My children safe.”

This was not the happy-ever-after ending Hussan had in mind years ago back in Iraq, when the single mother applied to come here as a refugee. Eventually, Canada gave the request the green light. But it took years before she was finally able to come here. And by then, she’d remarried and had another child.

Janet Dench, Executive Director of the Canadian Council for Refugees. But it is o.k. to lie when it’s for the children?

Fast forward to six months ago.

Hussan arrived in Toronto with two of her children. There, immigration officials learn about the marriage, and that her husband and child are waiting to join her from Lebanon. That’s when they put her case in a holding pattern, and that’s why she may never be able to sponsor her remaining children to come here.

The problem? In the minds of immigration officials, because Hussan did not disclose the changes in her family, meaning her marriage and new son, she misrepresented her case to authorities.

And according to Regulation 117 (9) (d) of our immigration act, if someone misrepresents their case, they cannot sponsor their remaining family members, especially those who were “not examined by an immigration officer, when the sponsor came to Canada.”

And the consequences could be permanent.

Even if Hussan avoids deportation, this could be a lifetime ban on family reunification, whether her oversight was intentional or accidental.

“We’ve been very, very concerned about people who are in this situation,” says Janet Dench, Executive Director of the Canadian Council for Refugees.

“And particularly the children that are affected by this, who are abandoned overseas by the desire of the immigration rules to punish a parent failure to report.”

They were abandoned by mom!

Why is this the Canadian taxpayers’ responsibility now?

Australia: More problems with their Muslim refugees as two Somali girls go to Syria

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 15, 2014

The Hijra is well underway Down Under. Muslims pray in the streets of Lakemba, a Sydney suburb, in this 2013 photo. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-08-08/muslims-pray-in-the-street-outside-lakemba-mosque/4873036

 

Just two days ago (a day before the hostage taking that is still on-going as of this writing) Australians learned that two more Muslim young women, wannabe jihadi brides successfully left Australia to join ISIS.  An earlier Australian jihadist was killed in Syria and her father now blames the Australian government for not being able to stop her!

I say let them go, and never let them back in to any civilized country.

Mohamed Karroum blames the Abbott government for the death of his adult daughter in Syria because they failed to stop her from leaving Australia (they had stopped her twice!). Any way to deport him back to where he came from?

From the Daily Telegraph (hat tip: ‘Pungentpeppers’):

A TEENAGER and her 20-year-old friend have become the first Australian women to “go it alone” to join terrorists in Syria and offer themselves as potential jihadi brides, intelligence agencies believe.

The girls, Hodan, 18 and Hafsa, 20, who are believed to have links with the Somali community, flew out of Sydney in the past fortnight to go overseas and are believed to have lied to their families about why they were travelling. The Sunday Telegraph has chosen not to publish their last names.

While there have been numerous cases of young Australian men being radicalised by Islamic State recruiters and women joining their husbands or boyfriends in the Syrian war zone, this is the first case of young women travelling independently to travel to the war zone.

If they travel to Islamic State’s stronghold in northern Syria, the province of al-Raqqa, the pair will face a jail term of up to 10 years if they ever return to Australia.  [Don’t let them in and save the taxpayers the cost of a trial and incarceration.—ed]

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said fresh reports of teenagers travelling to the region was of great concern.

[….]

Islamic State has issued a worldwide recruitment drive to secure brides for jihadists fighters.

Murdered Australian woman Amira Karroum, who grew up in Brisbane, died after she travelled to Syria with her husband.

Adding insult to Australia’s injury, the father of Amira Karroum wants to sue the government of Australia for letting her leave the country!  It’s just as I said about Sweden yesterday, let them in out of humanitarian zeal and then get kicked in the teeth—when will leaders of first world countries get it?    Here is the recent story at the Daily Telegraph.   Then watch the obnoxious father, Mohamed Karroum, on A Current Affair.

Come on!  We must stop the Hijra (migration) jihad!

UN blasts Sweden for “Afrophobia”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 14, 2014

Move over Islamophobia!  For all of you who don’t want to see your countries overrun, the United Nations has identified a new phobia they claim you are suffering from.

 

 

Look at this incredible story at the Daily Sabah, a Turkish newspaper (hat tip: ‘Pungentpeppers)!

By the way, there is a lot going on in Europe right now and if it seems we are spending too much time discussing the invasion, we aren’t.  What is happening in places like Sweden offers a profoundly important message we all better heed (and quickly).

ISTANBUL — Sweden, a European country known for its long history of openness and tolerance, now suffers from growing racial discrimination towards people of sub-Sahara African descent. In response to “a heightened xenophobic and racist attitude against migrants and refugee communities with African descent,” the United Nations called on the Swedish government to take significant measures to end “Afrophobia” within the country.

“Afro-Swedes and Africans with whom we met expressed their experiences of multiple forms of discrimination based on their skin color, race, religion and sex,” the U.N. human rights experts said, following a five-day official visit to Sweden. The working group urged the Swedish government “to develop a Human Rights Strategy and other measures that would address racial discrimination against Afro-Swedes and Africans.”

Then get a chuckle here.  They don’t tell you that the recent riots*** were perpetrated by the immigrants.

As hate crimes prevail within the country, Sweden was hit by riots over the weekend. During heavy clashes between protesters and police in a poor suburb in Sweden’s capital of Stockholm, 11 young people were arrested for rioting and arson. Many Swedish suburbs with a large immigrant population have been hit by violence, as many fear that it could further boost the far-right anti-immigration movement in Swedish society.

So here is the lesson we should all learn from “welcoming” Sweden.  They invited the world to come and partake of their generous society and what do they get?—a kick in the teeth for it.

Sweden’s reputation as an open society has been deteriorating as more people of African descent are subjected to racial discrimination. As the world continues to suffer from conflicts and political extremism, Sweden received the most asylum applications in the world from 2009 through 2013, according to the U.N. refugee agency, and the country expects that the number of asylum seekers in 2015 will break records. “Our society should be prepared to receive between 80,000 and 105,000 asylum seekers in 2015,” said Sweden’s Migration Board, the government agency in charge of handling immigration issues. Sweden’s refugee policy is also praised by many international humanitarian agencies, as it stepped up its efforts for Syrians by granting permanent residency to refugees fleeing the conflict. In light of the worsening humanitarian crisis in Syria, Sweden opened its borders to all Syrian asylum seekers by granting them permanent residency.

However, Sweden’s liberal policy towards refugees has resulted in decreasing tolerance in Swedish society toward immigrants. [NO kidding!—ed] In the face of a massive influx of refugees and asylum seekers, Swedish nationalism has been on the rise, as far-right groups are deeply critical of the center-left government’s policies towards immigration.

Go here for our complete “Invasion of Europe” archive.  Tomorrow there is expected to be another big demonstration in Germany against Muslim immigration, if you see the news before I do, send it my way.

***See riots last week, you know if they were started by native Swedes they would be making that clear.

Germany: 10,000 rally in Dresden against Islam/asylum seekers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 12, 2014

Update December 14th:  More demonstrations expected tomorrow, here.

Invasion of Europe breaking news….

“Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West” marched in Dresden earlier this week.

A day after the Obama Administration announced it is “welcoming” 9,000 Syrian Muslims to the US, Germans are expressing their anger loud and clear about the influx of Muslim asylum seekers. Germany is planning to take up to 20,000 Syrians in the coming months. Demonstrations of this size must be shaking up the European Union.  In October it was Cologne.

From Reuters at Yahoo News:

BERLIN/NUREMBERG (Reuters) – Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday condemned anti-Muslim demonstrations centered on the eastern city of Dresden, saying there was “no place in Germany” for hatred of Muslims or any other minority.

In a speech at a party congress of her Bavarian allies in Nuremberg, Merkel also denounced an attack on buildings in a nearby town being turned into refuge for asylum-seekers. The structures were set on fire and daubed with swastikas.

“It is unbearable when homes of asylum-seekers are defiled, when people try to make radical slogans,” Merkel said, adding that everyone coming to Germany had the right to be treated decently.

Earlier on Friday, Merkel’s spokeswoman Christiane Wirtz said: “In the name of the government and the chancellor I can say quite clearly that there is no place in Germany for religious hatred, no matter which religion people belong to.”

“There is no place for Islamophobia, anti-Semitism or any form of xenophobia or racism,” Wirtz said of the growing Monday evening marches in Dresden under the motto PEGIDA, standing for “Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West”.

[….]

The latest PEGIDA march on Monday drew up to 10,000 people and almost as many counter-demonstrators. The organizers, who began two months ago with a few hundred people, say they are not against immigrants but want to protest against Islamic extremism and the influx of asylum-seekers.

So where might those Syrians be going?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 12, 2014

Yesterday we learned that the Obama Administration committed the United States to take 9,000 Syrian (mostly Muslim) refugees  in FY 2015 which is already two months underway, and place them throughout America at some of their 180 cities where federal contractors are waiting to sign them up for social services, give them employment counseling, take care of their health needs and sign the children up for school.

Here is a map of where they could be placed.  Is your city on it?

 

See the legend on the right hand side of the map.  Those are the initials for the nine major contractors:

What you should do is go to this list of federal refugee contractors (listed by city) and call them.  And, by the way, don’t assume that if your city doesn’t have a colored dot you are off the hook.  They can place them within a hundred miles of a contractor’s office.  When you call, ask how many Syrians are coming to your town?  Then contact your local newspaper, your local elected officials and your representatives in Washington and let them know what you think!

Direct your ire at refuge contractors and elected officials at all levels of government, not at the refugees who are only taking advantage of a good deal.

Please send us anything you learn and send links to news stories about their arrival.

Here they come! State Department announces that 9,000 Syrians are on the way to the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 11, 2014

Update December 12th:  There are two other news accounts of this story you should see.  First, at Investor’s Business Daily: “US Vetting 9,000 Syrian Refugees To Weed Out Jihadists Before Granting Asylum.”  And, at World Net Daily: “U.N. sending thousands of Muslims to America.”  As of right now there are 975 comments to the WND article.

Where might they be going? Click here.

Anne Richard, Asst. Secretary of State went to that UN meeting in Geneva this week (we mentioned the “pledging conference” here) and dropped the bomb.  The UN has picked our Syrians for us, and if the war ended tomorrow, you can be sure that once the pipeline is flowing it won’t stop for years! Security is a big concern and apparently the reason for the delay, but we are taking them anyway!

Anne Richard Asst. Sec. of State for Population, Refugees and Migration: We take the refugees the UN picks for us.

From the Los Angeles Times (emphasis is mine):

The U.S. government intends to dramatically accelerate efforts to resettle refugees from the Syrian civil war and is preparing for a “surge” of thousands in each of the next few years, State Department officials announced this week.

[….]

They have some catching up to do: The United States has so far accepted only 300 of the more than 3.2 million refugees who have fled Syria since the war began almost four years ago.

The United States is the world leader in refugee resettlement, accepting 70,000 displaced people a year, more than all other countries combined.

[….]

But the U.S. has come under criticism from aid groups for its pace in taking in refugees from the Syrian war, which is by far the largest refugee crisis of recent years.

[….]

U.S. officials say the resettlement program has moved slowly because the United Nations refugee agency, which they look to for referrals, didn’t begin making recommendations until late last year. And the United States takes 18 to 24 months on average to carefully vet each applicant to make sure he or she poses no security risk.

In this next section note that we will take those “persecuted by their government.”  Christians are not persecuted by the government in Syria, but the Sunni Muslims are.  There is no doubt the majority of Syrians to be admitted to the US will be Muslims because it would be unlikely there would be a “security risk” with the Christians.

The State Department will resettle only the small minority who are in the most dire need, including the very young, ailing and elderly, and people who have been persecuted by their government. Even so, applicants have to be screened by counter-terrorism agencies, the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security in a process that is more selective than what is used for anyone else who wants to enter the United States.

[….]

The screening has become more rigorous since 2009, when authorities were alarmed to discover that two members of Al Qaeda had entered the country posing as Iraqi refugees. That concern has been sharpened by worries that fighters from the Islamic State militant group may try to enter the United States, refugee advocates said.

On Tuesday, Anne C. Richard, assistant secretary of State for population, refugees and migration, said at a U.N. meeting in Geneva that the Obama administration was going to step up its efforts because the refugee outflow had swelled “to a mass exodus.”

She said that the department is considering 9,000 resettlement applications and that “we expect admissions from Syria to surge in 2015 and beyond.”  [Surge beyond 9,000?  Most likely as the contractors*** are agitating for at least 15,000!—ed]

[….]

At the Geneva meeting, 28 countries agreed to take in 66,000 refugees. But that was far short of the 300,000 Syrians that officials at the U.N. refugee agency believe need to be resettled.

Everyone reading this page from an already over-loaded resettlement city (or a prospective new one!), must contact your Member of Congress or US Senators and speak up NOW!  The chickens probably won’t listen, but give them an earful anyway!

Obama Administration Office for Civil Rights pounces on Manchester, NH for not having Dinka interpreter

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 10, 2014

Every “welcoming” community that is either in bed now with the federal refugee resettlement program or contemplating snuggling up, should pay close attention!  Your state and local taxpayers are on the hook for interpreters every time an immigrant has a problem—in the school system, the health department and in the criminal justice system, most anywhere!    Just yesterday we wrote about Yer and Zit or was it Zar and Yar in Denver who need a Burmese interpreter to face the court on possible homicide charges.  Who do you think pays for that—you do (not Washington)!

Gatsas had previously ordered the Obama Dept. of Education Civil Rights Office to clear out for making inflammatory claims. I’m guessing they hold a grudge.

I do feel sorry for Manchester because whenever they first got into the refugee welcoming business they were either snookered or not told a thing about it until the refugees arrived.  Mayor Gatsas, to his great credit, has tried to slow the flow to the over-loaded city, but it may be too late—they already have 81 languages spoken in the school district!

Here is the latest from the Union Leader (hat tip: Paul).  No Dinka interpreter, sorry Manchester, that violent student is all yours!

MANCHESTER — District officials entered into an agreement with the federal Office for Civil Rights to return a student to school who had been slated for an expulsion hearing for assaulting another student.

The move has drawn strong criticism from at least two members of the school board’s Conduct Committee, which had voted unanimously to hold an expedited expulsion hearing for the student.

“The committee was blind-sided. This action does not support safety in our schools,” Ward 2 board member Debra Gagnon Langton, longtime chairman of the Conduct Committee, said at a Nov. 24 meeting. “I really think we need to vote on this. This is a violation of the public trust.”

Superintendent Debra Livingston replied that any discussion of the matter should take place in nonpublic session since it involved student privacy.

The complaint rests on the allegation that the district did not provide a Dinka interpreter to communicate to the student or his parents concerning his suspension.

Dinka is spoken by people from South Sudan.

[….]

As for the issue of language interpreters in the schools, Livingston said, “There are 81 languages spoken in the district. It’s very difficult to find someone who can translate all documents. What we’re trying to do is provide translation to as many students as possible.”

[….]

This isn’t the first time the district has drawn the attention of the OCR. Earlier this year, the civil rights agency entered an agreement with the district under which it would take concrete steps to boost the enrollment of black and Hispanic students in advanced high school courses. [Whether they deserve to be in those classes or not?—ed]

In August 2012, Mayor Ted Gatsas asked local representatives of the OCR to leave the City Hall chamber during a presentation in which they claimed that discrimination was a problem for minority students in the district. Gatsas accused the group of making unfounded and inflammatory claims.

We have a huge archive on Manchester, NH, click here to read the sad tale of an overloaded city trying to extricate itself from the feds and the entrenched contractors.

Remember that kerfuffle over the summer regarding nearby Dover, NH.  That was about spreading some of Manchester’s overload to surrounding small towns and cities.  Dover temporarily dodged a bullet when a public outcry erupted.

Where is Mark Steyn? Wouldn’t he have fun with the idea of a school district having to have a ‘Dinka man’ on call?

Denver: Wanted! More information on Zar Yar and Yer Zit

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 9, 2014

Seems they are Burmese refugees arrested on a possible homicide charge, but there is so little news on the arrest that happened last week, that we think there must be more to the story.  The victim is believed to be an Asian and we know that the court has to find a Burmese interpreter, and that is about all we know.

Back in 2009 we learned about Burmese and Bhutanese resettlement in Denver when the refugees were regularly being attacked by thugs after being placed in low-income neighborhoods. http://www.denverpost.com/ci_14053322

If you see more on the case, please let us know.

Here is a local Denver blog referencing the case.  Westword (hat tip ‘pungentpeppers’):

Thus far, authorities have been stingy with information about a homicide that took place late this past Thursday night. The victim has yet to be identified, and while two men — Zar Yar and Yer Zit — have reportedly been arrested in connection with the crime, no photos or additional details have been shared. Here’s what we know thus far.Thus far, authorities have been stingy with information about a homicide that took place late this past Thursday night. The victim has yet to be identified, and while two men — Zar Yar and Yer Zit — have reportedly been arrested in connection with the crime, no photos or additional details have been shared. Here’s what we know thus far.

[….]

….. law enforcers weren’t sure if a crime had been committed. But yesterday, CBS4 divulged that Zar Yar and Yer Zit had been taken into custody in relation to the death, which it defined as a homicide.

Nothing more about the suspects has surfaced beyond the station’s revelation that an advisement in the case had been put off until today to allow the court to find a “Burmese interpreter.”

We know a lot of Burmese of all sorts (and Bhutanese) have been resettled in Denver.  Reporters should check the resettlement contractors there for more on Yar and  Zit.

Also, keep in mind that taxpayers in “welcoming” communities must pay for interpreters for refugees facing legal charges.

Here is some contact information for resettlement contractors in Denver. Somebody knows Yar and Zit.  Why there are two offices for the Lutherans is beyond me, but keep in mind this is the same Lutheran outfit wanting to set up shop in Wyoming, here.

Iraqis top list of refugees resettled in first 2 months of fiscal year; Texas top resettlement state

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 9, 2014

Two months of fiscal year 2015 are now behind us and the US State Department and its contractors are off and running with a surprising number of refugees resettled so far.

These were the top 5 states in FY2014. Right now Arizona is edging out Florida and Michigan has moved to number 3.

According to the statistics kept at the Refugee Processing Center, Iraqis top the list.  Here are the Top Five countries of origin for refugees arriving in the US in October and November 2014 (the 2015 fiscal year began Oct. 1):

Iraqis:  3,367

Burmese:  2,530

Somalis:  1,856

Congolese:  1,004

Bhutanese:  870

The Syrian push is not on yet we see. Only 112 have come so far this year.

We then checked out any state that received more than 400 refugees in two months (which is a lot when supplying them with their welfare needs), and here they are:

Texas:   1,386

California:  997

Michigan:  585

New York:  584

Arizona:  564

Florida:  530

Washington:  529

Ohio:  514

Illinois:  475

Minnesota:  435

Georgia: 435

North Carolina:  434

Pennsylvania:  433

If you are wondering which nationalities have arrived in your state, you are out of luck because the State Department has removed the data base that tells us that.  Instead they have a completely useless data base that only tells us the ‘processing country’ from which your state’s refugees arrived.

Well, maybe I shouldn’t call it completely useless because it does give us some bits of information to ponder. For example, we learn that we took another 116 of Malta’s illegal aliens off their hands (probably Somalis).   466 came to the US from South Africa (the safe Rainbow Nation country), so who were they?  I noticed a bunch (79) of those South African “refugees” went to Minnesota.

I was interested to see we processed 1,070 from Turkey and a whopping 1,504 from Malaysia (who were they, illegal aliens trying to reach Australia?).  And we helped out the United Arab Emirates by taking 45 “refugees” off their hands.

This post is archived in our “where to find information” category and our “refugee statistics” category.

Rich nations not doing enough for Syrian refugees says Amnesty International

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 8, 2014

In advance of tomorrow’s United Nations “pledging conference,” Amnesty International took aim at most of the countries in the world for not taking in Syrian refugees.

Every time I see a story like this one, I look for what they are saying about the US and I continue to be amazed by the silence.  Are they protecting Obama (if this were the Bush Administration they would be tar and feathering him)?  The US has only taken a small number of Syrians (so far) and for that we are grateful, but why is the US conspicuously not mentioned.

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia: Why would we want to take any of those Syrians (or Iraqis or Afghans or Somalis)? Let Obama do it! The US Muslim population is the one we are building. Photo: http://foreignpolicynews.org/2014/03/28/president-obama-meets-king-abdullah-saudi-arabia/

Or, do they know something we don’t know (yet).

They do blast Russia, China, most of Europe and the GULF ARAB STATES (which includes Saudi Arabia) which take zero refugees.

From Alarabiya:

Amnesty International warned Friday of the “catastrophic consequences” of failing to offer protection to Syrian refugees being “left out in the cold” a week after the World Food Program (WFP) said it was suspending aid to exhausted funding.

About 3.8 million Syrian refugees are currently scattered across five main host countries in the region, of which only 1.7 percent have been “offered sanctuary” by the rest of world since Syria’s civil war erupted in 2011, the Amnesty report said.

The report, “Left Out in the Cold: Syrian refugees abandoned by the international community,” said Syria’s most vulnerable refugees include unaccompanied children, alleged survivors of torture, and people with severe medical conditions.

“The shortfall in the number of resettlement places for refugees offered by the international community is truly shocking,” said Sherif Elsayed-Ali, Amnesty International’s Head of Refugee and Migrants’ Rights, in a statement.

“Nearly 380,000 people have been identified as in need of resettlement by the U.N. refugee agency, yet just a tiny fraction of these people have been offered sanctuary abroad,” he said.

[….]

Russia, China and Gulf states have “failed to pledge a single resettlement place” for Syrians, while the European Union (EU), with the exclusion of Germany, has only pledged to “resettle a paltry of 0.17 percent of refugees in the main host countries,” according to the report.

[….]

Amnesty International’s report was released only a few days ahead of a U.N. pledging conference due to take place in Geneva on Dec. 9.

What do you think the odds are that if the UNHCR offered Syrians a new home in China or Russia they would actually take it?
