Chinese, pretending to be persecuted Christians, caught at the US border

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 11, 2014

Cheat sheet!  Where was Jesus born? Name his apostles! When is Christmas?

It isn’t just the “children” from Central America streaming across the wide open US southern border as this ABC News team discovered.  Hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers.’

From ABC-13 Eyewitness News (emphasis is mine):

But children are only part of the story.

And ABC-13 saw first hand why. As the Ted Oberg Investigates team was walking with Border Patrol agents along the trees and scrub brush about 500 feet from the Rio Grande, a group of nine men wandered out of a thicket.

The nine were from China.

With the help of ABC-13 colleague Miya Shay translating on the phone ABC-13 learned the men said that they are from various provinces in China. They first flew to France, they said — it was unclear if they were smuggled — and then to Mexico.

They were then taken across the Rio Grande in a boat to the shores of Texas near where ABC-13 was walking.

“China? They will pay somewhere from 30 to 40 thousand dollars to be smuggled,” Bidegain said. “They came through the same network in Mexico as everyone else.”

Unlike the children who swim across, these men were dry. They carried water in plastic soda bottles.

They also were prepared in another way.

ABC-13 found a document one of the men had dropped in the brush. It was a Christian checklist, with answers to questions such as, “Where was Jesus born, where did he grow up,” “Jesus had how many apostles.. what are their names,” and “When is Christmas.”

There are also hand-written scribbles on the bottom of the note. The name the founder of a local church. A reference to 1922, the year the church was founded. And the location of the church, Fuzhou, China.

Border Patrol agents said this makes it appear they were likely coached to tell agents that they wanted to seek asylum in the US because they were Christian with credible fear of persecution in their home province of China.

“A lot will claim to be Christian,” Bidegain said. “They are coached on the story.”

And it’s not just the Chinese.

There is more, read it all.

As we have previously reported, Chinese “asylum seekers” are the most fortunate of all would-be political refugees reaching our shores on their own—-the largest number of successful asylum seekers in the US are Chinese. See Homeland Security’s ‘Annual Flow Report’ (page 6) for stats, here.  As far as I can tell this 2012 report is the most recent one available.  Where is 2013???

The plot thickens in the Philadelphia immigration fraud arrest of Hayatullah Dawari

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 10, 2014

We told you about Dawari, an Afghan “convenience store clerk” who is also supposed to be a doctor, arrested on immigration fraud charges here a couple of days ago.  Now we learn that Dawari may have been passing coded messages glued in religious books from a terrorist group which he allegedly then sent on to others.

I’ve looked around at several reports on the case and can’t find a photo of Dawari (if someone does, please send it and I’ll insert it), and I have found no mention of how he got into the US in 2008—he very well could have been a refugee (or a successful asylum seeker) in order to now be ready for citizenship so quickly.

Here is another story from earlier in the week which contains the indictment.

The feds really should check EBT records for his convenience store to see if there is any sign of trafficking in food stamps that might have yielded a windfall for a foreign terrorist group.

Asst. US Attorney Williams: the note appears to direct some urgent action.

From Philly.com yesterday (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

A 62-year-old Afghan doctor detained in Philadelphia this week on immigration fraud charges received and passed along coded messages from an anti-Western terror group with ties to al-Qaeda, federal prosecutors said.

At a court hearing Friday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams said FBI agents discovered the documents written in Pashto and hidden between glued pages of religious tracts mailed to Hayatullah Dawari’s Northeast Philadelphia home.

The package, intercepted during a January raid, came from Pakistan and included instructions to forward several books inside to various people across the United States.

A later search uncovered a coded message similar to that found in Dawari’s possession at the home of another associate in Philadelphia.

“The note, when translated from Pashto to English, appears to contain a message directing some urgent action,” Williams said.

[.....]

Dawari, his lawyer said Friday, worked as a doctor in his home country – cooperating with American Red Cross efforts as part of American military operations in Afghanistan – before moving to Philadelphia in 2008 [Could he have gotten into the US on a Special Immigrant Visa for those who helped the US in Afghanistan?---ed]. Since his arrival here, Dawari has become an active member of his mosque and a legal permanent resident, and was seeking citizenship to cement his life in America, Tinari said.

Though he recently became disabled, he worked for years as a convenience store clerk.

Celebrate diversity in Philadelphia a preferred resettlement site.

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!

Philadelphia: Afghan convenience store clerk alleged to have terror ties

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 7, 2014

We don’t know if he is a refugee, but even so, he presumably got in here through one of our misguided legal immigration programs.  And, when the feds are at it they should check if any food stamp fraud was going on at the convenience store (was any of your money sent out of the country?).  LOL! Maybe he came across one of our borders?

Be sure to see our complete archive on EBT fraud by mostly Muslims trafficking in food stamps, here.

Feds allege he lied. So what else is new?  From Philly.com (hat tip: Robin):

A convenience store clerk was charged today in federal court with immigration fraud for failing to disclose his ties to a terrorist group on an application for U.S. citizenship.

Hayatullah Dawari, 62, is an Afghan citizen who has lived in Northeast Philadelphia since 2008.

Dawari allegedly has a connection to Hezb-e-Islami Gulbuddin (HIG), an anti-Western insurgent group active in Afghanistan and Pakistan, said federal prosecutors. HIG, which is closely associated with al-Qaeda and the Taliban, took credit for a 2008 assassination attempt on Afghan President Hamid Karzai and has advocated for the establishment of a fundamentalist Islamic state, according to published reports.

In May 2013, a spokesman for HIG announced the group planned to step up its campaign of violent jihad to include more suicide attacks, according to the federal indictment.

Dawari, a permanent legal resident of the U.S., applied for citizenship in November 2013. On a required questionnaire, Dawari checked a “no” box when asked if he had ever been “a member of or associated with any organization, association, fund, foundation, party, club, society or similar group in the United States or in any other place?” The question requires the applicant to note any and all affiliations with professional, non-professional or religious organizations.

By the way, we brought (to a town near you) just over 600 “refugees” from Afghanistan this year so far, here.  Wow! Just noticed we have resettled over 7,000 Somalis as of July 31 as well!  Yikes!

Breitbart: It isn’t just “the children” getting in! Leaked report reveals huge potential security threat at US border

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 7, 2014

When you read this remember that large numbers of those arrested or detained will claim they want to seek asylum in the US.  Go here for the most recent (2012) Refugee and Asylees Annual Flow Report on the numbers we grant asylum to—Chinese top the list (Egyptians are second in recent years).  The Chinese are granted asylum when they claim they want to have more than one baby!

By the way, I don’t know why the Department of Homeland Security has not issued the 2013 Flow Report (are they trying to hide something?).

From Breitbart (hat tip: Nisi):

LUBBOCK, Texas — A leaked intelligence analysis from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveals the exact numbers of illegal immigrants entering and attempting to enter the U.S. from more than 75 different countries….

 [....]

The report reveals the apprehension numbers ranging from 2010 through July 2014. It shows that most of the human smuggling from Syria and Albania into the U.S. comes through Central America. The report also indicates the routes individuals from North Africa and the Middle East take into the European Union, either to illegally migrate there or as a possible stop in their journey to the United States. The data are broken down further into the specific U.S. border sectors where the apprehensions and contact occurred.

Among the significant revelations are that individuals from nations currently suffering from the world’s largest Ebola outbreak have been caught attempting to sneak across the porous U.S. border into the interior of the United States. At least 71 individuals from the three nations affected by the current Ebola outbreak have either turned themselves in or been caught attempting to illegally enter the U.S. by U.S. authorities between January 2014 and July 2014.

As of July 20, 2014, 1,443 individuals from China were caught sneaking across the porous U.S. border this year alone, with another 1,803 individuals either turning themselves in to U.S. authorities at official ports of entry, or being caught attempting to illegally enter at the ports of entry. This comes amid a massive crackdown by Chinese authorities of Islamic terrorists in the Communist nation.

Twenty-eight individuals from Pakistan were caught attempting to sneak into the U.S. this year alone, with another 211 individuals either turning themselves in or being caught at official ports of entry.

Thirteen Egyptians were caught trying to sneak into the U.S. this year alone, with another 168 either turning themselves in or being caught at official ports of entry.

Read it all!  Somalis get a mention.  Don’t miss our call for a Congressional investigation way back in January 2011 on the issue of who is helping poor/illiterate Somalis (and others) get to the US border and who is paying for it!  Some kid from Somalia couldn’t possibly ‘find his way’ to the US border by traveling through a half a dozen countries without a lot of help and a lot of money!

Baltimore: “Sponsor” allegedly sexually abused ‘unaccompanied child’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 6, 2014

You know this is just the beginning!

Tennessee state police photo. Would you turn a 16-year-old girl over to this guy? The feds did! http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2014-08-04/news/bs-md-co-minor-smuggle-charge-20140804_1_court-documents-honduras-teenage-girl

A 42-year-old illegal alien promised the Office of Refugee Resettlement (in Health and Human Services) that he would provide a separate bedroom for a 16-year old girl not related to him—AND THEY BELIEVED HIM!

These people live in la-la land and surely we will see many more such cases of abuse as the Obama border surge continues.

From the Daily Caller (emphasis is mine):

A 42-year-old illegal immigrant from Honduras who was awarded custody of an unrelated 16-year-old Honduran girl has been accused of sexual abuse and of smuggling her into the U.S.

Pedro Lara Portillo is charged with alien smuggling and encouraging an alien to illegally enter the country, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Lara, who told authorities he has been in the U.S. illegally for seven years, also lied to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement when he said that he and the girl would have separate rooms while she lived with him, according to federal court documents.

The girl came to the U.S. in late March and spent a month in the custody of HHS, which turned her over to Lara’s care.

The agency is in charge of finding housing for the tens of thousands of unaccompanied children apprehended at the U.S. border while they await deportation proceedings to commence.

The girl told Baltimore County police in early June that she had been smuggled into the country, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Lara and the girl’s mother coordinated the plan to smuggle her from Honduras through Mexico, and the teen eventually entered the U.S. through Texas.

“Lara admitted in sum and substance that he wired money to Mexico for the purpose of having [the girl] smuggled to the United States,” Department of Homeland Security special agent Edward J. Kelly wrote in the charging documents.

According to the federal documents, Lara and the girl did not have separate rooms, contrary to assurances he made in the custody arrangement with HHS.

The Department of Homeland Security did not immediately arrest Lara after they interviewed him, though he was eventually apprehended in Tennessee.

There is more, keep reading.

Muslims sue government over delays in granting citizenship

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 4, 2014

Here is just a short piece from last week that should be noted.  I’m actually glad to see that some immigrants are being denied citizenship (or at least being seriously scrutinized) in light of the Obama Administration’s zeal in welcoming the world to America.

ACLU attorney Jennie Pasquarella: clients are long-time law-abiding residents. Photo: http://latinocalifornia.com/home/2012/07/el-condado-de-los-angeles-la-capital-de-las-deportaciones-en-ee-uu/

From the International Business Times:

Five Muslim US residents sued the federal government on Thursday, accusing the Department of Homeland Security for unfairly causing delays in their permanent residency and citizenship requests.

The plaintiffs include Palestinian Muslims Ahmad and Reem Muhanna, who had applied for US citizenship in 2007 and had their applications rejected in 2012. Others include Ahmed Hassan, a Muslim refugee from Somalia who has been seeking permanent residency since 2006, and Iranians Neda Behmanesh and Abrahim Mosavi.

The plaintiffs claim that their immigration petitions were unfairly stalled and flagged for potential national security concerns, reported Reuters.

The criteria laid out for flagging applications under the Controlled Application Review and Resolution Program (CARRP) are secretive and broader than authorized by the US Congress, the immigrants claimed.

Representing the immigrants in the federal court in Los Angeles was Jennie Pasquarella, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California.

Addendum:  So where is CAIR?  Have they weighed in yet?

Vermont “refugee” agency closes its doors due to lack of funding; helped illegals get into Canada

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 3, 2014

Gee, just when we were hoping Vermont might take all of the tens of thousands of illegal alien children surging across our border (their elected officials all say they are “welcoming!”), one of their illegal alien support groups has run out of money.

I’m guessing the ORR (Office of Refugee Resettlement), which has been sending your money to this group, is cutting funds to little dogs like this one because the big-dog contractors*** are monopolizing all of the federal dollars especially since they even have Washington, DC lobbyists helping them acquire your money.

Little outfits like this one—Vermont Immigration and Asylum Advocates—which prides itself for helping illegal aliens reach Canada are just being out-competed in the federal grant wars.

So, while we are on the subject of the asylum racket (see previous post this morning), from Seven Days:

VIAA director Jenness will now go to another immigrant ‘advocacy group’— Association of Africans Living in Vermont

Long-simmering immigration issues boiled up again recently as tens of thousands of Central American children crossed into the U.S. Some of approximately 57,000 unaccompanied minors who have made the journey since last October could land in Vermont. Gov. Peter Shumlin has expressed a desire to help house them, while also noting that the state lacks the large facilities that federal officials are seeking.

In the past, Burlington-based Vermont Immigration and Asylum Advocates, the state’s leading authority for refugees seeking asylum for 30 years, would likely have been preparing to spring into action, representing the children in court and helping them adjust to their new surroundings.

But, they have run out of money:

VIAA had less than $108,000 in revenues in 2012, according to publicly available tax records. The federal Office of Refugee Resettlement contributed more than half of that. VIAA’s second largest chunk of revenue came from individual donors, who collectively kicked in more than $19,000. Several organizations, including the Vermont Bar Foundation and the Sisters of Mercy, contributed as well.

They proudly worked with “friendly” border guards to get illegal aliens into Canada:

The organization launched in 1987 as Vermont Refugee Assistance, to support refugees who had fled civil wars in Central and South America. Most were in Vermont en route to Canada, which has historically been more receptive to asylum seekers than the U.S.

In the old days, Jenness said, friendly border guards would tip them off when people had difficulty crossing into Canada. She and other staffers carried pagers so they could fetch and house those refugees who needed help.

They also did those phony-baloney asylum cases:

 The organization gradually evolved into what essentially became a pro bono legal clinic, representing detained immigrants — who are not eligible for public defenders and often face removal hearings without attorneys — and asylum seekers, who have to navigate a complex legal landscape.

Great, now this is something to really toot your horn about!

They made the national news for helping hundreds of Pakistanis trapped at the US/Canadian border due to changing laws (laws probably related to national security after 911).  If the Pakistanis had nothing to hide, why were they running to Canada?

The group made national news in 2003 when it assisted hundreds of immigrants, mostly Pakistanis, who sought asylum in Canada after the United States enacted new laws forcing them to undergo a special registration process with federal officials. Nervous about getting arrested or deported, many of the Pakistanis tried to flee to Canada but became stuck in Vermont after Canada enacted a new law allowing its border agents to send asylum-seekers back to the United States while their cases were pending.

There is more, it’s a long story and I only snipped a small portion of it.

Honestly, let’s send all of the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ to Vermont.  There isn’t a more deserving state!  It could be the Petri dish of sorts—we could find out what size immigrant population will crash the economy of a state and be the “tipping point” for the American public’s patience.

***The federal refugee resettlement contractors (we may have to start adding grant recipient big dogs Baptist Child and Family Services and Southwest Key Programs to our list):

Owners of dogs which killed jogger were asylum frauds, should have been deported by now

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 3, 2014

I’m sure you all heard the story on the news that a jogger was mauled and killed by dogs in rural Metamora, Michigan late last month.  Due to some excellent reporting at the Detroit Free Press we now know that the owners of the dogs were political “refugees” (she from Albania) who should have never been allowed into the US and were expected to be deported (sometime in the future).

Unofficial RRW crime investigator ‘pungentpeppers’ spotted this story that goes beyond the original headlines.

The Albanian woman lied and bribed greedy immigration officials in New York.  What!  asylum seekers lie? Officials take bribes? You betcha, have we forgotten the Boston bomber asylees so quickly!   And, you can bet clever immigration lawyers are working up some whoppers for the border crashing “children” at this very moment.

From the Detroit Free Press:

The Metamora couple whose dogs killed a jogger last week are in the U.S. illegally and were facing imminent deportation at the time of the attack.

Valbona Lucaj, 44, got into the country from Albania in January 1997 after bribing an immigration officer into granting her asylum, according to federal court filings. Her Italian husband, Sebastiano Quagliata, 45, arrived a month earlier as a tourist and never left.

Jogger Sytsma is dead, the dogs soon will be dead, and the alien creeps will probably do time in prison on the US taxpayer’s dime all due to our deeply flawed asylum system. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/07/25/dogs-killed-jogger-neighbors-react/13192027/

The two are potentially facing involuntary manslaughter charges after their Cane Corso dogs attacked and killed Craig Sytsma, 46, of Livonia on July 23 as he jogged past their home on a rural Metamora Township road. Lapeer County prosecutors are expected to announce a decision on criminal charges this week. It is unclear what, if any impact, their citizenship status will have on possible prosecution.

The couple have been fighting deportation for years since immigration officials discovered that Lucaj had paid $3,000 to an immigration officer in New York to grant her asylum. That asylum was then granted to Quagliata because he was her spouse.

But on March 31 of this year, U.S. District Judge Gerald Rosen refused to stop their deportation, siding with immigration officials who said that Lucaj “lacked good moral character arising out of fraud in obtaining asylum.”

The pair repeatedly lied to immigration officials as they sought asylum and then naturalization, according to the files.

 There is much more, read it all.

For new readers, the asylum process is for people who get their feet on American soil and then claim they are persecuted back home for: race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion (the Albanian woman in this story said she was persecuted for being Catholic in a largely Muslim country).  If granted asylum they get all the social service goodies and all the rights, including a path to citizenship that regular “refugees” (which the UN and the US State Department selected abroad and brought here) receive.

Earlier this year, the New York Times (of all places!) published a huge investigative story about the amount of asylum fraud among the Chinese in New York. Then there is that Russian gay asylum fraud racket.

The whole asylum system that the anti-borders people are pushing for the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ to enter is, in my view, rotten to the core.
