Oshkosh, WI reaches out to refugees with “welcoming smile” as State Dept comes for a visit

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 18, 2014

Barbara Day, the US State Department’s chief resettlement officer, visited Oshkosh on Tuesday presumably to make sure the community (the media!) was getting the right message about the next batch of refugees to arrive in Oshkosh.  She was essentially shoring-up the base.

Remember there was a flurry of opposition this past January when a city alderman in nearby Appleton raised a ruckus.

Barbara Day wants to be sure Oshkosh stays on board with refugee placement.

Oshkosh and Appleton are 25 miles apart and as is often the case, when a city begins to overload with refugees, there is spillover into another nearby city.  When the State Department does family reunifications they like to stay within a hundred miles of the family or ethnic group enclave.

This is a public relations visit by Day to be sure the Oshkoshers stay on track with “welcoming” the “new Americans.”  You see, they are running out of suitable places to resettle refugees and since there are so many “family” members coming now who want to be with their families that towns quickly get overloaded, especially when the secondary migrants arrive on top of the newly resettled.

From the Northwestern (emphasis is mine):

Oshkosh is expected to continue to be a hub for the resettlement of refugees who are coming to Northeast Wisconsin to establish new roots after fleeing their home countries.

Like previous years, about 70 refugees are expected to arrive in Oshkosh and call the city home in 2014. Most of the refugees will be Iraqis, Congalese or Burmese, said Myriam Mwizerwa, Oshkosh director for World Relief Fox Valley.

[....]

“Refugees can’t survive in a community without knowing other people and becoming involved in the community itself,” said Barbara Day, the Domestic Resettlement Section Chief at the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration.

[....]

Day spoke to members of the Oshkosh Refugee Resettlement Task Force Tuesday at the Oshkosh Public Library.

Once a seed community of certain ethnic groups are established in your “welcoming” community, the resettlement contractors, like those mentioned here from World Relief/Evangelicals (one of the top nine federal contractors), are paid to process the paperwork for “family members” to join the original group. It puts your town or city in a bad light if it suddenly wants to stop the flow (how dare you block families reuniting!)  That is what the following reference is to:

In 2013, 69,926 refugees resettled within the United States, with between 70 and 75 percent of them moving to places near family or friends.

“That fact really drives placement,” Day said. “They’re coming to join family and close friends who are already here.”

World Relief’s regional representative wraps up the piece with a little slap down to other towns that are not ‘welcoming the stranger.’

Santa Barbara, CA: TB outbreak among Mexican ethnic group called “tip of the iceberg”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 17, 2014

Although the ethnic group members harboring an outbreak of active TB in scenic Santa Barbara are not refugees, but largely illegal aliens, this is still an important story especially coming at the same time as the case in Illinois we reported last week.

We have, over the years, been following TB outbreaks largely coming from the foreign-born because we think it is one of the most under-reported problems (due to political correctness!) with our willy-nilly immigration system.  See our ‘Health issues’ category, here.

Another RRW geography lesson: The state of Oaxaca in Mexico.

From the Santa Barbara Independent last week (Hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

Santa Barbara health officials have been quietly working for months to contain a tuberculosis (TB) outbreak, and are now ramping up suppression efforts after publicly announcing that a Santa Maria High School student has been diagnosed with the infectious disease.

While the single diagnosis is a cause for concern, prompting both a community meeting on Friday and mass screenings at the school next Monday, the County of Santa Barbara Public Health Department’s grander ground plan has been actively kept under the radar for the past six months due to fears of alienating an already marginalized population and concerns about political backlash.

In 2013, 26 Santa Barbara residents were diagnosed with TB; 16 are North County residents, and nine are of Oaxacan descent. Figures for 2014 are not yet available, said Public Health Department spokesperson Susan Klein-Rothschild. At least one person died in 2013 from the disease (which typically attacks the lungs and has a 50 percent mortality rate if left untreated) and many had let it progress to advance stages before receiving treatment (which makes it much more contagious). Three children younger than 10 years old were diagnosed last year, and one was left severely and permanently disabled.

The disease has taken a real hold in the Oaxacan community!

Five of the Oaxacan cases “have epidemiologic links and the same genetic pattern on their TB isolate,” meaning they are all part of the same transmission chain. The Center for Disease Control declares an “outbreak” when three of more cases display that genetic link, and this week’s high school student case has been connected to the chain……the disease appears to have taken a real hold in the Oaxacan community.

Challenging job partly because they speak neither English or Spanish (diversity is strength, right!)

Thoman explained during an interview this Wednesday that Public Health nurses have been combing North County communities “day and night” in recent weeks, searching for signs of the disease. It’s a challenging assignment, she went on, as some of the Oaxacan individuals may be undocumented and harbor a distrust of government workers. Plus, many of them only speak Mixteco.

Only ten percent of California TB cases will become active!  Do the math!  Yikes! Isn’t ten percent of 3 million, 300,000?

While an estimated three million California residents carry the bacteria that causes the disease, only about 10 percent of them will come down with active TB, which can be cured with medication.  [if they get it in time, and if the foreign-born person completes the prescribed drug treatment regime---ed]

Why isn’t this story all over the national news?  For the same reason Santa Barbara health officials kept it quiet for so long—political correctness!

If fears of terrorism or crime don’t wake up Americans regarding our present out-of-control immigration, then surely the fear of ones kids getting TB in school will do it.  Or, how about Mom bringing the disease home because she is a public health nurse, a social service worker, or simply a volunteer for refugee and immigrant groups?

UN says other EU countries can now send ‘em back to Bulgaria

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 16, 2014

I bet the Bulgarians are thrilled!  (Not!)

 

This is just a short news item to keep our Bulgaria archive up-to-date.  Bulgaria, on the border with Turkey, has been a gateway for Syrians and Africans to slip through the border from Turkey and get a foothold in Europe.  They really do not want to stay in Bulgaria, wanting instead to get to the countries with more goodies to give away, like Germany.

Should they slip through their country of entry, the EU has a policy that says “asylum seekers” must be returned to the first country in which they arrived to be processed there, thus placing the largest ‘refugee’ burden on border countries, like Italy, Spain, Greece, Bulgaria and Malta.

According to the UN, Bulgaria had been doing such a rotten job taking care of refugees, that previously the so-called refugees were not returned there.  Now that has changed.  Notice that the UN is calling the shots, the EU isn’t even in charge.

From the Global Post:

The UN’s refugee agency said Tuesday it was partially lifting a call to stop returning asylum seekers to Bulgaria because conditions there had improved.

Under current rules, European countries must return asylum seekers to the first country on the continent they arrive in.

But in January the United Nations urged European nations to suspend all returns to Bulgaria, citing “systematic deficiencies in reception conditions and asylum procedures” after the country was swamped with refugees from war-ravaged Syria.

Minnesota: Somalis protest Kenyan crackdown on terrorists; want US to intervene

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 15, 2014

Kenya may be one of the only countries in Africa which has a will for self-preservation and so they have begun to clean-up some hotbeds of anti-Kenyan activity, especially neighborhoods associated with the Westgate Mall slaughter by a band of Somali al-Shabaab terrorists*** last September.

 

Community organizer, Jibril Afyare (center?), led 100 picketers in St. Paul condemning Kenya.

However, the Minnesota Somali “community” apparently doesn’t think Kenya has the right to save itself and agitators there, including newly elected city council member Abdi Warsame, are calling on the US government to step in. They say they want “justice.”

From MinnPost:

After members of the Twin Cities’ Somali-American community said their afternoon prayers Friday, they gathered at the state Capitol to express solidarity and demand justice for relatives in Kenya.

Reports from human rights groups, news stories and communications with relatives describe abuses against Somalis in Eastleigh, a suburb of the Kenyan capital of Nairobi that is known for its large Somali population.

As part of an ongoing counter-terrorism crackdown, Kenyan security forces launched house-to-house searches in Eastleigh last Monday.

US government should intervene in Kenyan affairs says community organizer.

Nearly 100 picketers joined the Friday demonstration in St. Paul, condemning actions by Kenyan government and demanding the release of those detained.

Jibril Afyare, an activist who organized the demonstration, said the event was meant to raise awareness and ask the U.S. government to intervene and stand with Somalis in Kenya.

Warsame:  Somalis in prison everywhere!

Minneapolis City Council member Abdi Warsame, Somali-born with personal ties to Somalis in Kenya, was among the elected officials who attended Friday’s Capitol gathering.

Addressing the crowd in Somali, Warsame said: “Somalis everywhere are in prisons. We’re in prison in Hennepin County. We’re in prison in Nairobi. We’re in prison in Mogadishu.”

LOL! Maybe there is a reason for that!

As I said the other day, why don’t young, strong, educated Somalis like Afyare and Warsame go back to Somalia and save their country from further ruin instead of flapping their gums from the safety of Minnesota.  I think I know why—it is not about Somalia.  They are more interested in Al-Hijra—the Islamic doctrine of immigration—for both Kenya and America.

*** Remember readers that there are Somalis in prison in the US for sending financial support to al-Shabaab.

Need for court interpreters increasing in Wyoming

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 15, 2014

Governor Matt Mead keeps saying, they (refugees) are coming to Wyoming anyway, so we need a plan.

According to this article some immigrants are arriving in the Wyoming court system and require interpreters that are not readily available.  The Wyoming Public Radio story mentions Chinese (Mandarin), Spanish, and an occasional Laotian or Somali speaker.

However, keep in mind that a “refugee recruitment” office in the state is not going to solve the problem of immigrants on trial in Wyoming and in need of skilled interpreters—it will only exacerbate the problem because of the myriad languages refugees to America are speaking.

For review, the top nine languages (in descending order) spoken by refugees in the last 6 years are:  Arabic, Nepali, Sgaw Karen, Somali, Spanish, Chaldean, Burmese, Armenian, Kayah and more than 8000 refugees in those 6 years spoke “other minor languages.”

Utah Burmese refugee found guilty earlier this year in rape and murder of little girl. Appropriate interpreter was initially difficult to find.

We have written much lately about the expensive refugee criminal trials where costs for court interpreters were a hefty portion of the bill (see Utah Burmese rape murder trial for instance).  Are you ready for this in Wyoming?

A refugee resettlement office will have no role in dealing with the secondary migrants already arriving in Wyoming.  Their job will be to bring new refugees into Wyoming and that is what they are paid to do!

Here is how the Wyoming Public Radio story begins (Hat tip” ‘pungentpeppers’):

Wyoming is a largely rural state with limited diversity. But as the population grows and the state attracts all sorts of newcomers. Wyoming is learning to accommodate the changing population. One of the areas where the state is making headway is interpretation services in its courts. Wyoming Public Radio’s Irina Zhorov reports.

Not mentioned here is that it is federal law that appropriate court interpreters (and interpreters for all sorts of social welfare/healthcare/education) be provided to the newcomers and billed to LOCAL taxpayers.   Note to “welcoming” communities—it is expensive!

Wyoming still moving forward with refugee “recruitment” discussions; story goes national

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 15, 2014

I’ve not seen that phrase before—refugee recruitment—it must be newly coined by critics of Wyoming Republican Governor Matt Mead’s proposal to study the possibility of a refugee resettlement office in the state, but I like it!

Mead’s primary challenger, Dr. Taylor Haynes, opposes Mead’s invitation to the federal government to study the possibility of resettling refugees in Wyoming.

Here is yet another article on the controversy.  Our complete archive, is here.

From the Wyoming Tribune Eagle:

CHEYENNE — State officials are continuing to study a proposal that could bring a refugee resettlement program to Wyoming.

But the governor’s office and others are also trying to quell worries that this will lead to an influx of immigrants coming here.

“Some people are concerned about this effort, worrying that Wyoming is ‘recruiting’ refugees,” Gov. Matt Mead recently wrote in a letter to the editor sent to newspapers in the state. “There is no recruitment; there is, however, an effort to understand the issue.

“Right now, our state is learning more on the issue.”

Mead sent a letter last year to the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement*** to explore setting up a public-private resettlement office here.

The federally funded program would provide refugees with a range of assistance, including help finding housing, employment and health care, for the first several months after they arrive in the country.

The feds and their resettlement contractors would like Wyoming decision-makers to think that the whole program is funded from Washington.  It is not!  For a few months US taxpayers foot the bill for the refugees and then the responsibility falls on the state for all of those refugees who never find work.  Wouldn’t you think that a Republican governor would be sensitive to taxpayers and jobs for Americans everywhere before getting into a contract with Washington?

Barnett:  Federal refugee contractors are no different then your Lockheed Martins in that they have the same incentives.

The Tribune Eagle continues:

Don Barnett is a fellow for the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for a reduction in the number of immigrants coming into the country.

He agreed that refugees can impact the state’s and federal government’s budget.

And he cautioned that the federal government and the groups picked to be its contractors rather than the state  would largely control how many refugees come here, where they will live and where they come from.

He said the contractors also proactively try to set up the refugees with the welfare programs.

“I don’t think people realize that the state will not have much control of this program if it is institutionalized or implemented,” he said. “It’s largely these contractors that will have the say, and these federal contractors are no different than your Lockheed Martins in that they have the same type of incentives.”

*** Gov. Mead wrote his letter of inquiry to the Office of Refugee Resettlement which is in the US Dept. of Health and Human Services (they dole out the $$$ to the contractors after the refugees are resettled.  It is the US State Department (and the UN) which makes decisions about who comes to the US and it is the State Department which doles out the $$$ to the contractors for the initial resettlement and decides where they will be located (in consultation with ORR).  Contractors are PAID BY THE HEAD.

Wyoming controversy goes national, including discussion about Mead challenger Taylor Haynes

The Associated Press has picked up the Wyoming refugee story.  Here it is at the Washington Times:

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) – Gov. Matt Mead is addressing criticism about the possibility of opening a refugee resettlement program in Wyoming.

Mead recently sent a letter to the editor addressing the issue to newspapers across the state. Mead wrote that the state is still learning more about the issue and said that Wyoming is not recruiting refugees.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle (http://bit.ly/1m21Fj0) reports that Mead’s challenger for the Republican nomination, Taylor Haynes, is among those who have criticized the move.

Haynes said refugees could strain Wyoming’s budget by relying on state and federally funded safety net programs like Medicaid. He is also worried that they may not be screened for ties to violence or for diseases such as HIV and the Ebola virus.  [Haynes is a medical doctor, so it is interesting that the story doesn't mention those credentials.---ed]

Two Wyoming cities are the subject of discussion for locating the federal offices—Gillette and Casper.  Once established, it is only rarely (extremely rare!) that a city can stop the program when they find out that there are problems and there will be many problems!

Addendum:  I see our fact sheet on refugee resettlement is attracting large numbers of readers (again!).  If you haven’t seen it, click here.

US resettles 75,000 Bhutanese refugees since 2007; State Department goes back on its word

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 13, 2014

In 2007, then Asst. Secretary of State for Population Refugees and Migration, Ellen Saurbrey, said the US had agreed to take 60,000 of the 100,000 Bhutanese (really Nepali) refugees living in camps in Nepal over a five year period.  Here we are, going on 7 years, and we have now taken in 75,000 with more on the way!

Sauerbrey: 60,000 over five years.

You can read all about why we decided it was our duty (here) to do this when we had no national interest in it—other than that the UN told us to do it!  And, surely US companies, looking for cheap legal labor, were egging the Bush administration on, while the human rights industrial complex agitators cheered.  In fairness, we can’t blame Sauerbrey for what the subsequent Obama State Department is doing.

But, pay attention because they will do this (lie) about the Syrians as well

Once the US State Department begins the process with its resettlement contractors, the numbers will balloon way beyond what they promised in the first place.  Remember the contractors are paid by the head to resettle refugees in your cities and town.  They are always out scouting for a fresh supply!

Other countries were supposed to help, but as is the usual case, the lion’s share falls on the US.

From the International Organization for Migration (also a US contractor):

Nepal – The United States this week resettled its 75,000th Bhutanese refugee from eastern Nepal. Tilak Chand Ghimire, 44, his wife, 12-year-old daughter and 75-year-old parents, will start new lives in Akron, Ohio, where his brother resettled in 2010.

The move brings the total number of Bhutanese refugees resettled from Nepal since 2007 by IOM, in close cooperation with the Nepali government, the embassies of resettlement countries and UNHCR, to 88,770.

Get it!  We took 75,000 of the 88,770 resettled so far!

All subsequent negotiations to allow them to return to Bhutan failed and almost the whole 107,000 caseload are expected to eventually be resettled in third countries, notably the US.

We have an extensive archive on Bhutanese refugees going back to our first year writing RRW, click here to learn more.  You will see in the early posts that a large number of the Bhutanese/Nepalese camp dwellers DID NOT want to be resettled in third countries.

Minneapolis to celebrate Somali independence day—July 1

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 13, 2014

The newly elected Minneapolis City Council member, Abdi Warsame, has been a busy guy lately.  On Friday he presented a resolution to the city council to proclaim July 1 ‘Somali American Day’ to celebrate the African country’s independence from Italy and the UK.   (And we all know how well that worked out!).  Then he lead a protest against Kenya.

MN Governor Mark Dayton congratulates Abdi Warsame.

From Somali Current:

Somalicurrent – The Minneapolis City Council voted Friday to mark July 1 as “Somali American day” in the city, which is home to many immigrants from the east African country.

The date holds significance among Somalis, who celebrate independence day on July 1 both in Somalia and the United States diaspora.

Abdi Warsame, the first Somali-American on the Minneapolis City Council, praised the resolution at a council meeting on Friday. A gathering of Somali-American men were in attendance.

“This is a very important resolution for me,” Warsame said. “And it actually came from the elders and the community leaders who wanted to highlight the contributions, the culture, the values of the Somali-American community, which is a large and growing population in the city of Minneapolis.”

The July 1 independence day commemorates when the Somali Republic was created by uniting two territories previously controlled by Italy and Britain.

Minneapolis Somalis protest against Kenya!

Meanwhile, as we know, Kenya is trying to save itself from Somali terrorists (remember the Westgate Mall slaughter) and Minneapolis Somalis are protesting against Kenya.

And, look who is denying that Somalis had anything to do with the Mall attack—Abdi Warsame—appropriately reported at Al-Shahid network:

Somalis live in Minnesota (USA) protested against Kenyan brutal arresting of Somali community in Nairobi, especially in Eastli village.

With especial interview to voice of America Somali service, Minneapolis council member, Abdi Warsame, who hails from Somalia, has told that hundreds of Somalis in Minnesota marched the streets for showing their refusal of Kenyan indiscriminate harassment against Somalis.

“We can’t bear this twenty first century that our citizens are harassed. I am calling Kenya to stop this brutal action. Somalis are not terrorists. They are not responsible the terrorist attacks in the country”, Abdi Warsame, the first Somali man who hold such post in American territory said.

If Warsame really wanted to help “his country,” he could return to Africa and help Somalia lift itself out of squalor and chaos rather than run his mouth from the safety of Minneapolis!

For new readers,  Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis?  Thank the US State Department and its contractors:  Catholic Charities, Lutheran Immigration Services and World Relief (facilitators of Al-Hijra).

Norway: Muslim migrants sending their kids “home” for schooling

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 13, 2014

Well, so much for these migrants to Norway being there for asylum, for protection from persecution, if they think it’s perfectly fine to return kids (alone!) to Pakistan, Iraq and Somalia for a proper education.

A politically-correct Institute for Social Research says it’s because the kids aren’t doing well in Norway because they don’t speak Norwegian well enough.  Give me a break!  Toward the end of the story we learn the real reason—no Muslim schools in Norway and so the kiddies aren’t getting their Islamic training!

This is the photo accompanying the story. Check out the kid’s face as the Moms try to look away!

So, are the Muslim immigrants wanting to become part of Norwegian society or are they invaders?  See Al-Hijra.

From The Norway Post (emphasis mine):

Several hundred Somali-Norwegian children are sent to schools in Somalia, Kenya, Egypt and the UK, according to a recent report. The main reason is that their parents are unhappy with the Norwegian school system.

 [....]

“Parents often experience that their children are regarded as weak students, mostly because they do not speak Norwegian as well as other kids their age. It worries these parents that their children are not challenged enough in Norway,” says Hilde Lidén at the Norwegian Institute for Social Research (ISF).

Lidén is one of several researchers that have looked at the phenomenon that many children with a minority backgorund are sent abroad to attend school. It is most common among children with a background from Pakistan and Iraq, she reports.

13% of Somali kids in Norway (in one year!) have left the country and authorities don’t really know where they are!  Could they be on the US border claiming to be “unaccompanied minors?”

Just under 1900 children, or 13 percent of all children with a Somali background, emigrated in 2012. Around 60 percent of these children are likely to have moved out of Norway alone. However, this is only an indication of how many that may have moved abroad to attend to school, as there are no exact figures available.

Finally, the OTHER reason they may have left—to get a STRONG cultural and religious indoctrination into Islamic supremacist thinking.

Lidén points out that there may also be other reasons for why a family chooses to send their children abroad temporarily. To ensure that the children receive a strong cultural and religious foundation from their home country is one of them.

Aftenposten writes that several parents have reported that if there was a Muslim school option in Norway they would be more likely to let their children stay at home. Their mothers, however, are worried that the children do not learn enough about Islamic culture and values in Norway without attending an Islamic school.

Hey, here is an idea!  The whole family could stay in the home country and they wouldn’t have to live with the dilemma!

Norway has problems, see our previous posts.

Utah! Why the h*** do we have to put up with this?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 11, 2014

‘Pungentpeppers’ sent us this story from Utah a couple of days ago—it’s about Afghan refugees bringing their Islamic culture clashes and their violence to your communities.    It is long, and annoys me so much I could barely read the article.

And, for Utah political leaders, what the heck are you thinking allowing your lovely state to be the doormat for the kinds of people resettlement contractors are dropping off?  Didn’t you get an earful with the gruesome murder trial of a Burmese Muslim man who was convicted earlier this year for raping and killing a little girl (she died in excruciating pain)?

For citizens of Utah, if the culture clashes aren’t bothering you, aren’t you at least asking elected officials what all this crime and violence is costing taxpayers?

By the way, if you are thinking it’s the Mormon Church dropping off the Muslims, it isn’t.  The federally-funded refugee contractors in Utah are:  The International Rescue Committee, Catholic Community Services, Jewish Family Service and the Asian Association of Utah.

Haji Rahimi, the patriarch of the family.

Now here is the lengthy and complicated tale of the Afghan refugees, clashing, quarreling (and killing).

Read the sob story that opens the article.  I am so cynical, I don’t believe it.   I think the family fabricated their tale of woe to get in here.

From City Weekly:

After the tale of woe:

After a year of waiting, Haji Rahimi, his wife, three daughters, son Nisar, the two widows of their eldest sons and their children were granted political asylum in the United States in 2000. They flew into Chicago, and from there to Utah, where they settled.

[....]

But while the Rahimis thought they’d left violence behind them, the very cultural values that Haji had advocated against in Pakistan were waiting for them in Utah. Nazir’s relationship with Nargis Mullahkhel—an Afghan single mother in the middle of a divorce, at odds with her family’s strict cultural values—led to friction, then violence between the two families, and ultimately to the death of Nargis’ 19-year-old brother and Nazir spending five years in prison for his killing.

Although the police who investigated the killing never got to the bottom of exactly how and why it happened, the Rahimi family’s story and court documents suggest that at the heart of the tragedy lies not only a clash between modern and traditional Islam, but also the struggle of immigrant families to both assimilate within American society and retain their cultural identities, even if those identities may sometimes chafe with American cultural values and laws.

Chafe with American values and laws?  Chafe with?  WTH!  Why are we putting up with ‘retaining cultural identity’ when it ‘chafes with’ ours?

Diana West nailed it!

Remember the Iraqi and Somali Muslims are pouring into the US right now, and soon the flood gates will open for more Afghans and Syrians to arrive in your “welcoming” cities.
