Ohio University program geared to get the kids’ minds right on refugees…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 13, 2014

….presents “harrowing” tale about the “multinational nature of the refugee experience” as a Somali illegal alien arrives in America.

That story about the Somali arriving in the US illegally across our southern border is most interesting to me.

Ethnographer Tariq Tarey will tell harrowing story about illegal alien Somali sneaking into America. http://tariqtarey.com/about/

If you happen to live anywhere near Ohio University Lancaster, you might want to check out the program next week.

From Logan Daily:

LANCASTER – November is a month where many remember to be thankful for what they have. During International Education Week, Lancaster campus students, faculty and staff will have an opportunity to hear from refugees in Central Ohio who are very thankful to be living here.

The campuses at Ohio University have different themes during International Week to examine issues of cultural tolerance and understanding.

“The theme for Ohio University Lancaster’s International Education Week is Safe Haven: Refuge in Ohio,” said OUL development director Mandi Custer. “We will be looking at the different cultures that have come into Central Ohio from places like Rwanda and Somalia.”

On Tuesday, Nov. 18 at 7 p.m., a panel discussion will be held (“Voices of Refuge”) in the Raymond S. Wilkes Gallery for the Visual Arts. The panel will be made up of refugees from around the globe talking about how they came to the United States and Central Ohio.

[....]

On Wednesday, Nov. 19 at 6:30 p.m., conflict in another country will take center stage at OUL. Somali Refugee and Documentarian Tariq Tarey will speak in the Wagner Theatre.

Then isn’t this interesting, presented as if there is nothing wrong with Somalis (or anyone) arriving illegally across our southern border, Tariq Tarey will talk about an illegal alien Somali.

So where did the poor struggling Somali illegal alien get the money to travel half way across the world to Colombia, and up through Panama, Central America and across all of Mexico with no one stopping him along the way? Will anyone dare ask that question of presenter Tariq Tarey?

And, while you are asking, ask why the star of his documentary needed to come illegally when we have resettled over one hundred thousand Somalis over a couple of decades—there is a legal line for Somalis!

The Logan Daily continues:

According to the Somali Community Association of Ohio***, Somali refugees started arriving in the U.S. in 1991. Since 1995, Columbus, Ohio, has proven to be a popular destination for refugees, and today Ohio has the second largest Somali population in the U.S. It is estimated that there are at least 38,000 Somali immigrants and refugees living in the Columbus metropolitan area.

Tarey will talk about how and why refugees from Somalia end up in Central Ohio. He’ll also show clips from his documentaries, which focus on the stories of refugees.

“One of the stories is of a man who literally walked from South America to California to get into the states,” said Custer.

“Tarey’s documentary on the Darién Gap is harrowing, but also interesting,” said Ohio University Lancaster English Assistant Professor Matt Wanat. “It uses the journey of one man through a stretch of dense forest and swamp between Colombia and Panama to document both the multinational nature of the refugee experience and the hardships so many face. I look forward to Mr. Tarey’s talk.”

***The Somali Community Association of Ohio has one of the strangest Form 990′s I’ve ever looked at.

Note on page 9 of its most recent form, here.  Total revenue was $354,331 and $353,761 came from government grants.  They received $570 from non-cash contributions so they are 99% funded by taxpayers.

Then go to page 10 where they have listed:

$4,104 for compensation to officers, but no other salaries and yet they spent $2,206 for payroll taxes.

$27,254 was spent for occupancy and $6,000 for accounting (for this tiny outfit?).  But zero office expenses are listed.  See some of the other misc. expenses as well.

Most of their money, a whopping $298,289 went for a summer food program which I see they do have in Ohio for poor kids to eat over the summer.  I don’t have time to look for their government grant for this food program, but since they had no other income that year the food grant (was it halal food?) also covered a few of their other expenses…like the $27,254 occupancy expense…to the tune of over $55,000 for the year.  Hmmmm!  Audit needed here?

For more information, I typed “Somali Community Association of Ohio” into our search window and get all of these previous posts.  Typing in “Somalis Ohio” we get a whole lot more, here.

Rome: Protesters take to the streets claiming refugees are bringing crime to their neighborhood

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 12, 2014

Sorry to focus so heavily today on ‘Invasion of Europe’ news, but that seems to be where the action is.

Matteo Salvini a political “rising star” in Italy. http://news.yahoo.com/salvini-seeks-fill-berlusconi-boots-italys-063140476.html

From the Independent:  (Be sure to see the photo which I can’t import—these women don’t look so nasty to me!  Their sign says: ‘enough uncivilised immigration’)

Racial tensions have exploded in Rome’s suburbs after locals chanting pro-Mussolini slogans attacked an immigrant holding centre. Police responded with baton charges and tear gas.

Locals are calling for the building in the Tor Sapienza district to be closed after blaming the migrants it houses for “insupportable” levels of street crime in the area.

But the nastier side of the protests were apparent on Tuesday night with hundreds of people chanting: “The blacks have to go,” and dozens more shouting: “Long live Il Duce (Mussolini)”.

The violence in Tor Sapienza began simmering on Monday night with hooded men throwing stones at the Sorriso reception centre in Viale Giorgio Morandi. On Tuesday night the situation escalated dramatically. At around 10pm around 50 people, at the head of a 250-strong crowd, attacked the centre with rocks and petrol bombs. At least 14 people, including four policemen, were injured in the clashes that saw cars and rubbish bins set alight and used as barricades. Some residents claimed the police over-reacted. “They charged us suddenly, for no reason, while were standing still on the pavement. We wanted protection from the forces of law and order, but instead they attacked us,” one local, Eliana, told Ansa news agency.

The 36 African and Bengali refugees inside pleaded with police to be led away to safety, according to Corriere Della Sera newspaper. A few hours earlier one of the refugees was attacked in the street.

The ugly developments are the latest sign of a wave of anti-immigration sentiment sweeping Italy, with populist political leaders appearing to profit from, even encourage it. Matteo Salvini, head of the xenophobic Northern League, has seen his ratings rise after appearing in a T-shirt bearing the phrase: “Stop Invasion”.

But, now hold on, go to the last paragraph and we learn that the refugees aren’t pure as the driven snow…..

The violence at Tor Sapienza is the latest in a series of racially-motivated confrontations in the capital in the past few months. In September there were several clashes between refugees and locals in the Corcolle district. Around 40 migrants attacked two buses with stones and threatened a female driver, after claiming they were not allowed on public transport. Locals responded by launching vigilante patrols.

I wonder what level the migrant population must reach before violence comes to the streets.

LOL! Remember that story we had from Italy in August—Refugees protest against boring Italian food!  It is tough being a refugee in Italy these days.

Go here for our archive on the ‘Invasion of Europe.’  And, especially see this post on the rise of the European right.  Can Europe still save itself?

Malta writer: no “illegal” migrants just “irregular” ones, and you are a racist if you don’t see that

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 12, 2014

This is your standard Leftist diatribe against anyone who dares question the wisdom of giving asylum to anyone in the world who reaches any country’s border.  I’m just mentioning it for two reasons—-one to show how they manipulate the language. “Irregular” migrants (funny! Ha! Ha!), and secondly because we have been a long-time observer of poor little Malta as a doorway (doormat!) to Europe (and America) for thousands of mostly Muslim ILLEGAL aliens coming from North Africa.

Assuming there isn’t more than one Alison Bezzina in Malta, she won an American prize for humorous writing in 2011—”Dr. Smith at your cervix.” http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20111021/life-features/timesofmalta-com-blogger-finalist-in-humour-writing-contest.390125

If you want to catch up on Malta, see our extensive archive here where you will see posts about how the US State Department is scooping up some of the illegals and bringing them to your towns and cities.

Here is Alison Bezzina at the Malta Independent apparently in response to some facebook postings that got rather strident.

I am totally convinced that people who comment so cruelly and negatively have never met anyone in Semihar’s [Eritrean mother of three who arrived illegally in Malta—ed] situation, at least not in person. To me, they are racists devoid of emotion, compassion or empathy. Sadly, most justify their racism and hatred by saying that they are not particularly against Africans but against people who enter the country illegally.

Conveniently, they fail to understand that asylum seekers and refugees such as Semihar are not in Malta illegally. They enter the country irregularly (not illegally) because they have no other way of doing so, but then, once they are recognised as genuine asylum seekers (and most are) they have as much right to be in Malta as you and I. Once they are out of detention, they are even given a Maltese ID card and are legally allowed to work because, shock horror, it is their right!  [Hey, here is a thought, maybe Alison could take Semihar and the kids to her home!—ed]

She rambles on and says a political candidate wasn’t raised to be a “decent” man by his parents, then makes some analogy to the Berlin Wall that isn’t immediately clear to me, and wraps up saying that the recent decision by the European Court of Human Rights (we posted here) could backfire and incentivize countries like Malta and Italy to let ‘asylum seekers’ move on to the interior of Europe.  With that last point I agree.  Malta and Italy are swamped already—thank the Court of Human Rights and open those detention centers and let them move on.  Germany might actually put them up in a 4-star hotel.

By the way, people like Ms. Bezzina think they can just throw the word “racist” around and everyone will run for cover.  It doesn’t work anymore!

Our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ series is here.

And, just fyi we have had a lot of readers from Malta over the years.

Time opinion piece: Jihadi superhighway is busy; refugee groups could be Trojan Horse

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 12, 2014

Rep. Michael McCaul: Cruise ships may even be bringing terrorists into Turkey.

Time magazine published an informative article by Rep. Michael McCaul chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security yesterday.

Turkish border with Syria a huge problem (emphasis is mine):

Extremists are exploiting EU security gaps to exit Syria and Iraq and return to the West undetected, leading to a “terrorist diaspora”

Foreign fighters headed to the Middle East are not deterred by U.S. bombing in Syria and Iraq. According to recent reports, 1,000 fighters from countries across the globe are pouring into the conflict zone each month to fight with ISIS and other fanatics, adding to the 16,000 already estimated to have gone there.

The bad news is that Westerners are among their ranks, including Americans and Europeans, who are only a plane flight away from our shores. More troubling is that security gaps in Europe—and Turkey in particular—make it easier for them to return to the West undetected once they decide to leave.

The threat from “returnees” is real and growing. These battle-hardened, violent Islamists have the training and extremist networks to plot deadly terrorist attacks against our homeland.

Refugee groups as a Trojan Horse:

Equally worrisome is that terrorists might use refugee groups as a Trojan Horse to get into the West. Hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees have poured into Turkey this year, and many of them have left for other European countries by boat. It is unclear whether extremists are hiding in these groups, as few are comprehensively screened on the way out.

Unfortunately, the Mediterranean countries where these refugees are headed, like Italy and Greece, also have a disincentive to screen them. Overwhelmed by large migrant populations drawing on social services, these governments have a reason to “look the other way” and let unregistered migrants make their way into the rest of Europe to become another country’s problem. These transit routes are disturbingly susceptible to terrorist exploitation.

Wider European Union security gaps are also a problem. EU law forbids member states from automatically running EU citizens against terror watch lists when they return to the continent’s 26-country Schengen Area, a large swath of Europe in which its citizens can travel freely without border checks. As a result, only a fraction of EU citizens are screened against terror databases when they re-enter Europe. This vulnerability may allow European foreign fighters—many of whom can travel visa-free to the United States—to make it back to the West without drawing attention.

There is more, read it all.

See our complete ‘Invasion of Europe’ series where we almost daily report on the mostly Muslim migrant flow from the Middle East and Africa into Europe.

Lewiston, Maine mayor: More public housing would attract more welfare recipients

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 10, 2014

Mayor McDonald is continually under fire from Leftists and Somali agitators. Here is one such case in 2012: http://www.pressherald.com/2012/10/02/lewiston-mayor-asked-to-resign-after-comments/

Although the “S” word is not mentioned, it does seem that the mayor ( Mayor Robert Macdonald) had Somalis on his mind when he talked with WMTW.TV (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

Voters in Lewiston have repealed an agreement that would have given some pieces of city land to a landlord whose properties were destroyed in a 2013 arson. Affordable housing would have been built at the site. Mayor Robert Macdonald said the city has enough housing and more than 40 vacant buildings have been torn down so far.

[....]

He is concerned about building more housing that can attract people from other areas and take advantage of public services. When we bring these people in here, they perpetuate the—the myth that Lewiston is nothing but a welfare place.

By the way, I assume the arson fire discussed is this one which did involve a Somali boy.  More here.

How did all those Somalis (thousands of them) end up in Lewiston?  See our post from 2009 on Maine and the welfare magnet, here.

You also might want to have a look at our extensive archive on Lewiston by clicking here.

And, one more thing, Maine’s Governor Paul LePage, who has been trying for years to get rid of Maine’s reputation for welfare generosity to migrants and asylum seekers, was re-elected last week (the Left is not happy).  See our Maine archive here.

Sec. of Homeland Security visits Somali “community” in Minneapolis, hears complaints

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 8, 2014

Says he wants help in identifying immigrants with bad intentions.  (Well, he didn’t exactly say that.)

In response, Somalis welcome federal help in keeping their youths from wanting to join the jihad, say they need more taxpayer funded stuff to keep them here.  (Well, not exactly in those words.)

Jeh Johnson with Somalis in Minneapolis. Somalis don’t want any airport profiling as they travel in and out of the US. http://www.kare11.com/story/news/local/2014/11/07/homeland-security-chief-johnson-somalis-luger-bihi-dube/18670865/

It seems pretty simple to me, don’t profile at airports as they leave the country, just let them leave and then strip them of their passports!

From Fox9 Minneapolis (emphasis is mine):

MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) –

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson was in the heart of Minnesota’s Somali community Friday to listen and let local leaders know they aren’t alone. He encouraged grassroots efforts to build safe, strong and proud neighborhoods, telling the Muslim community this is your America too.

“I want to encourage people to be participants in our public safety, in our homeland security.” Johnson said. “This is your country too.”

Johnson talked about several hot button issues, insisting he is focused on community engagement.

“Muslims are always being targeted because they happen to be Muslims,” Abdirahman Mukhtar, with Pillsbury United Communities said.

The secretary’s agenda includes racial profiling and the extremist recruitment of young Muslims to fight in wars overseas.

“This is an exercise in trust,” Johnson said.

The secretary explained that efforts to block the pipeline that is sending potential fighters from the Twin Cities to far off places like Somalia and Syria starts on the ground in neighborhoods like Minneapolis’ cedar-riverside.

The message from the White House is the federal government needs help.

“If you see somebody who may be headed in the direction of violence, someone disaffected, angry in some way, help us to help you in the community,” Johnson said. “I don’t consider that snitching.”

“We are very happy that we are getting the right attention,” Abdirizak Bihi, a Somali community leader said.

Somali community leaders welcomed the cabinet level visit that included meetings and roundtable discussions with law enforcement and other stakeholders.  ['Stakeholders' never include those critical of the government---ed]

The hope is that Washington gets the message that there are problems on the ground here that need addressing to keep young immigrants from becoming disillusioned and influenced by terrorist organizations.

They need more job training, education, and nice places to live (and for you to pay for it!).

“There’s no employment opportunities, no job training, college readiness, the achievement gap,” Amano Dube with Pillsbury United Communities said. “They don’t have an appropriate place to live.”

And, LOL! don’t you dare profile them at airports as they try to get to Somalia or to the Middle East to join ISIS!  It continues to be a great mystery to me why so many “persecuted” Somalis are always flying back and forth to Somalia and East Africa.  How persecuted could they be?

BTW, more Somalis are arriving in Minneapolis every day thanks to the US State Department and its contractors.

Cedar Rapids, Iowa: Rwandan refugee charged with naturalization fraud

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 5, 2014

The next time you hear one of the advocates for refugee resettlement claim that the screening is very thorough, remember this case!

I think one of our problems (well, the do-gooders’ problems) is that we (they) can’t wrap their minds around the incredible lies refugee wannabes are willing to tell.    See all of our posts on lying (and other criminal) Rwandan refugees by clicking here.

From The Gazette (Hat tip: Joanne).  Emphasis is mine:

Can you believe it? Ken Ngombwa allegedly lied to get into the US as a refugee.

CEDAR RAPIDS — A Cedar Rapids man who is originally from Rwanda was charged Tuesday in federal court with naturalization fraud.

Ken Ngombwa, 54, is charged with one count of unlawfully procuring or attempting to procure naturalization or citizenship; one count of procuring citizenship to which he was not entitled; one count of conspiracy to unlawfully procure citizenship; and one count of making a materially false statement to agents of the United States, according to an indictment.

The indictment said Ngombwa attempted to obtain citizenship for himself and family members who accompanied him to the United States from Rwanda from March 1998 through Nov. 19, 2004.

Ngombwa and others allegedly made a number of false statements to U.S. immigration authorities, who decided to grant Ngombwa refugee status and permanent resident alien status, which permitted him to become a citizen.

According to the indictment, Ngombwa claimed he was the brother of Faustin Twagiramungu, a former prime minister of Rwanda.

Ngombwa appeared in court Tuesday and was released on bond. He was ordered to surrender any passport or travel documents, stay in Linn County, have no contact with potential witnesses and undergo a mental health evaluation.

If convicted, Ngombwa faces up to 30 years in federal prison and a $1 million fine. He also faces loss of citizenship. [So we get to pay for him in prison for 30 years?—ed]

Ngombwa also faces second-degree arson and insurance fraud charges in Linn County District Court. He is accused of setting multiple fires in his home in July 2013 and giving his insurance provider false information about the fire.

So will he and his extended family be deported?

Be sure to visit The Gazette for the arson story involving Ngombwa from earlier this year.

I think the US State Department should be responsible for paying for all of the legal costs associated with THEIR mistake.

Check out this story about how much the lying Rwandan cost us in New Hampshire a few years back.

I know it is still our tax dollars no matter what federal or state jurisdiction foots the bill, but I would still like to see these criminal cases paid for out of the US State Department’s budget.  Maybe they could even reimburse Iowa, Linn County and the city of Cedar Rapids for anything this liar cost the local and state government, even all the welfare they probably are still receiving.

Gainesville, GA: School system doesn’t know how many UACs they are educating; already calling them refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 4, 2014

The flood of Unaccompanied Alien Children that came across the US southern border this summer is now having an impact on local school systems as school boards and administrators have to figure out how to educate them, some of whom speak rare dialects and have had little formal schooling.  All of this is, of course, going to cost local taxpayers and disrupt learning for many American kids.

Someone has to pay to educate the “children.” Last I heard Georgia got 1,709 of them. http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/orr/programs/ucs/about

Here in the Gainesville Times, we see that officials are already referring to the illegal aliens as refugees.

They are not refugees, but that is what the Obama Administration and the United Nations (which calls the shots!) wants you to believe.

Indeed, it is my view that the whole invasion mess represents the big push to change the internationally understood definition of what constitutes a ‘refugee’—someone who is escaping persecution for reasons of religion, race or political persuasion.

Once they succeed in redefining refugees (asylum seekers) as people escaping crime, the entire system crashes and anyone in the world can claim asylum in America simply alleging that they fear criminals where they live.

Gainesville is in Hall County (the poultry capital), see a previous post on the problems there with the influx of UACs.

From the Gainesville Times on Saturday:

As children from Central America have fled to the U.S. as refugees, some have wound up in Gainesville schools, but officials said they don’t keep track of how many.   [Kind of hard to budget then don't you think!---ed]

“That’s not a question that we ask,” said Laura Herrington, the district’s director of Title III, a federal program that includes English language learning.

Still, Herrington said the students are there even if there isn’t an exact count.

“I know that we have some who speak dialect, and the dialects that they speak are indicative of some countries in Central America,” she said. “We haven’t asked our students to tell us their stories yet.”

The refugees, she said, are educated in the same program as other students who learn English as a foreign language.

Herrington estimated 30 of about 200 high school students learning English are newly arrived from Central America this year. There likely are more in middle and elementary school, but she doesn’t have a number.

7,000 – 8,000?  Where is that number coming from when HHS’s own website says a whole heck of a lot more (see graph!)?

According the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, an average of 7,000 to 8,000 children enter the Unaccompanied Alien Children program each year, and 93 percent of them from El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. The children often come to the United States to escape violence, abuse or persecution, to seek family members or to find work. They sometimes are brought into the country by human trafficking rings, according to the department.

Obama and the UN—they are REFUGEES

The United Nations has pushed the U.S. to treat children from those three countries as refugees displaced by armed conflict, as drug traffickers and street gangs have made the three-country region one of the world’s most violent.

Last month, the Obama administration began a program to give refugee status to some children from those countries in response to the influx of unaccompanied minors entering the country illegally. Under the program, legal immigrants from those countries can request that children related to them be resettled in the U.S. as refugees. [And, thus be eligible for all the welfare goodies official refugees receive!---ed]

All of our coverage, going back several years, is here in our ‘unaccompanied minors’ archive.

Australia: Sunni (ISIS) believed responsible for attack on Shiite

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 4, 2014

Just a quick note from Down Under—-this is what happens when western countries “welcome” the opposing factions of Islam to live among us.  This conflict has been going on since the year 632 and isn’t going to end any time soon.

A reminder:  We (the US) will soon be bringing in mostly Sunni Muslim Syrians from UN-run camps in the Middle East (5,000 in the pipeline).  I don’t know, but will try to find out, if the majority of Iraqis we are bringing now (among the 20,000 or so in the last year alone) are Sunnis or Shiites (I am guessing mostly Sunni).

 

 

From the UK Daily Mail (hat tip: pungentpeppers):

Fear of revenge attacks follow the shooting of a Shiite Muslim in a drive-by attack in Sydney’s south-west.

Rasoul Al-Musawi was closing up an Islamic prayer centre on Rosedale Avenue is Greenacre when the attack occurred, with friends claiming he was targeted targeted by people claiming to be supporters of Islamic State.

Mr Al-Musawi was shot in the face and shoulder while he was with his wife and four of his children at the Husainiyah Nabi Akram centre.

Mr Al-Musawi’s friend – who did not wish to be named – is a Shiite Muslim and said the shooting in Greenacre was motivated by the sectarian struggle in the Middle East.

‘They called us “Shia dogs” and they threatened to come back down tonight and kill you, shoot you, whatever,’ he told ABC Radio on Monday.

The man said they had taken no notice of the threats made on the night of the shooting – which also included ‘IS lives forever’ - but then he received a phone call saying his friend had been shot.

There is more, and more photos, here.

We have 148 previous posts about Australia, here.  They have their problems with refugees and phony asylum seekers, but at least there is a serious effort underway by the present government to stem the illegal flow to Australia.

Idaho: Magic Valley refugees don’t have Ebola says resettlement contractor

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 1, 2014

 

OK? Has there been an Ebola scare in Idaho I missed?

Is the purpose of this news story (based on a press release from a resettlement contractor) the result of a real problem of “hostility” toward refugees in the Twin Falls, Idaho area, or was it meant to head any “hostility” off-at-the-pass before anyone gets an idea to be hostile?

Could there be a ‘pocket of resistance’ forming in Idaho?

Whatever happened to Idaho’s Uzbek refugee alleged terrorist?

The story at KMVT (Fox 14, Sun Valley) caught my attention this morning and led me down a winding trail of trying to figure out exactly why there is a refugee contractor with the name—College of Southern Idaho Refugee Center (CSIRC or P for Program).  Why is a college involved in this?

I haven’t written much about Idaho over the years, but here is our archive of what we have.

I see they did have the arrest of that Uzbek refugee alleged terrorist there in 2013, but whatever happened to the case?

So let’s have a look at CSIRP.  But first here is the news:

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) – The South Central Public Health District and the College of Southern Idaho Refugee Center Director are speaking out after concerns have been raised over refugees arriving from West Africa.

In a news release, Logan Hudson with the Health District and Ron Black with CSI said, “Refugees come to the Magic Valley area in search of a new life, but right now some are being met with hostility and concern due to stigma from the Ebola outbreaks in West Africa.”

“None of our refugees are from West Africa; they are no more likely to have Ebola than anyone else living in this area. Every refugee goes through several rigorous medical screenings before they can enter into the United States,” said Ron Black, College of Southern Idaho (CSI) Refugee Center Director. “The medical screening and waiting period they go through is longer and more intense than any protocol used for ordinary travelers. Plus, most CSI refugees arrived years before the Ebola outbreak.”

Ron Black, Director of resettlement in Twin Falls: Some refugees are being met with hostility.

Stigma is happening in the Magic Valley due to several factors including myths and fears of the disease, gossip that helps spread the fear, and a lack of knowledge about how Ebola is actually spread.

[....]

This is a daunting time for everyone, especially our refugees. We ask that the community show empathy and most importantly remember that no one in this area, let alone the state of Idaho, has been diagnosed with Ebola.” said Ron Black, CSI Refugee Center Director.

Idaho is a Wilson-Fish state.

That means that the refugee program there is being run jointly between the feds and their quasi-government contractors with little state government control or oversight.  Learn more about Wilson-Fish here.

The College of Southern Idaho Refugee Center is a subcontractor of the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants  (one of the big nine) and apparently doesn’t have a separate tax Form 990 (that I can find), so it’s hard to figure out exactly how big they are and how much of your tax dollars are flowing through it.   See their history here.

The CSIRP has brought 2,500 refugees to Magic Valley providing workers to local businesses and bringing your federal tax dollars for their social services (aka welfare):

Since it’s inception, the CSIRP has resettled more than 2500 refugees from a variety of different continents; providing local businesses with a steady source of entry level workers. The Program has also brought more than $3 million of federal money and benefits back to the Magic Valley that have been used to purchase goods and services from local merchants.

Check out all the nationalities of refugees resettled in Southern Idaho in the last 20 years:

1993 to 2011

Kosovar
Bosnian
Croat
Serbian
Iranian
Iraqi
Burmese
Russian
Vietnamese
Burundi
Mesketian Turks
Eritreans
Bhutanese

2012 to Current

Afghani
Congolese
Sudanese
Iranian
Iraqi
Bhutanese
Burmese
Eritreans

 

I recommend if you are a reader from Idaho that you explore their website and also the Idaho Office for Refugees (NOT a state agency) which along with the federal government calls the shots in Idaho.

P.S. If anyone sees news stories about real hostility to refugees over Ebola, please send links to this blog post!
