Canada to speed up Syrian refugee intake

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 7, 2014

No surprise…

Immigration Minister Chris Alexander: Syrians are coming! http://www.cicsimmigration.com/alexander/

From the Toronto Sun:

OTTAWA – Canada has taken in 1,500 Syrian refugees, Immigration Minister Chris Alexander told the House of Commons Monday.

The government had been under pressure from opposition politicians to bring more refugees to Canada more quickly.

“If they are here, where the heck are they?” NDP MP Andrew Cash asked. “Response by this government has been incredibly slow and it’s not commensurate with the tragedy unfolding.”

Alexander said the system has been improved so that refugees can get to Canada more quickly.

New readers interested in Canada’s refugee problems, go here for our archive on our “welcoming” northern neighbor.

By the way, how many Canadians (former refugees and others welcomed by Canada in years past) are fighting with ISIS now?

San Antonio: Surprise! Iraqi lied on refugee application; suspected links to Al-Qaida

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 7, 2014

But, the government got him on only ripping-off the taxpayer for his disability payments!  He could get ten years in the slammer (on our dime), but no mention of deportation!

The next time you hear about how thoroughly refugees are screened, remember this story!

By the way, he is not the first to lie, nor will he be the last!

From MySanAntonio:

SAN ANTONIO — An Iraqi man who was resettled in San Antonio to escape purported persecution pleaded guilty Monday to lying to get refugee status and stealing from the U.S. government.

Ahmed Khudhur Tayyeh, 39, was arrested last year after counterterrorism agents investigated him on suspicion that he had ties to al-Qaida.

He was set to go to trial Monday on charges of withholding information from the Social Security Administration and withholding information on his refugee application. He abruptly accepted a plea offer instead, pleading guilty to one count of theft from the government and one charge of making a false statement. A charge of Social Security fraud was dismissed.

As one of nearly 200,000 Iraqi refugees approved by the U.S. government for resettlement in America since 2007, Tayyeh was given a green card despite his giving conflicting stories about how he injured his leg.

In one story, he allegedly said he took a hit from an improvised bomb; in another, he said he was kidnapped by Iraqi police and shot in the leg.

[....]

In court Monday, Tayyeh admitted that on his refugee application he failed to list two brothers and claimed his father had been killed. His brothers are believed to have al-Qaida links, and his father is still alive.

Read it all.

Off the top of my head here are a few other Iraqis now spending time in US prisons on our dime.  By the way, I’ve advocated that the US State Department pick up some of the prison tabs for those they have resettled (not just Iraqis) now living in prison on us!

See, Kentucky Iraqi terrorists here Colorado Iraqi rapists hereArizona Iraqi bombs Social Security Office, here.  California Iraqi who murdered his wife and pretended Islamophobes did it, hereSouth Dakota Iraqi sex trafficker gets life, here.

So much for screening!

Will American refugee worker be next on ISIS list?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 5, 2014

Update October 14th:  Greta Van Susteren calls out “moderate” Muslims in America and asks them to repudiate ISIS for being anti-Islam if they kill Kassig, here.

Update October 13th:  More of Kassig’s family history in the peace and justice movement, refugee resettlement at USA Today.

Apparently ISIS has featured an Indiana refugee worker for its next possible beheading.  Peter Kassig briefly served in the US Army, but came from a family “with a long history of doing humanitarian work.”

In fact, near the end of this AP story we learn that Peter had earlier helped with the resettlement of Burmese refugees in Indiana before making the jump to helping refugees in Syria.   Longtime readers know that some cities in Indiana, especially Fort Wayne, have been completely overloaded with mostly Burmese refugees.  It is one of the first overloaded cities we learned about back in 2007 and the situation there prompted former Senator Richard Lugar to ask for a GAO study of the refugee program which concluded that communities are completely unprepared for the numbers the US State Department and their contractors are bringing in.  But I digress…

Will ISIS care that he was a good person helping refugees? Or, that he converted to Islam?

Family photo of Kassig delivering aid to Syrian refugees.

From AP:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The parents of an Indiana man threatened with beheading by the Islamic State group are pleading with his captors to free him, saying in a video statement Saturday that their son has devoted his life to humanitarian work and aiding Syria’s war refugees.

Ed and Paula Kassig’s video was released a day after the Islamic State group’s online video threatened to behead 26-year-old Peter Kassig next — following the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning.

That video was a heartbreaking development for Kassig’s family and friends, who had stayed silent since his capture while working to secure his release.

In the family’s video, Ed Kassig says his son, who now goes by the first name Abdul-Rahman after converting to Islam during his captivity, was captured on Oct. 1, 2013, in Syria, where he was providing aid for refugees fleeing that country’s civil war.

He says his son has grown “to love and admire” the Syrian people, after growing up in an Indianapolis family with a long history of humanitarian work and teaching.

“Our son was living his life according to that same humanitarian call when he was taken captive,” says Ed Kassig, a teacher.

[....]

Kassig focused on humanitarian work after leaving the military. While attending Indianapolis’ Butler University, he worked to help refugees from Myanmar who had resettled in central Indiana, said family spokeswoman Jodi Perras.

In my opinion, that since Kassig converted to Islam it would be in the best PR interests of ISIS to spare him—to teach the Islamic lesson: convert or die.  Why the hell say that if one converts and dies anyway!

This must be having a chilling effect on those considering “humanitarian” work in the Middle East.

Norway deports Somalis, but Somali government refuses to take them

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 4, 2014

Think about this dilemma for every Western country with trouble-making Somalis!  The new Somali government doesn’t want them back!

See our post just about two weeks ago—Soul-searching in Scandinavia—about how Norway is getting tougher on the issue of Muslim immigration.

From Horseed Media:

Somalia’s government has refused to receive a number of Somali refugees who were deported back from Europe, an official has confirmed.

Abdullahi Gafow, Director of Immigration and Citizenship. I wonder does he have the nerve to send those planeloads back to Saudi Arabia? http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/01/05/saudi-arabia-deports-200-more-somalis-who-were-only-seeking-a-better-life/

Abdullahi Gafow, Director of Immigration and Citizenship, said that six Somali nationals were ‘’illegally’’ deported back from Norway and they were denied an entry.

‘’We won’t receive any refugees who are forced or illegally deported. We have already sent them back’’

‘’ The Norwegian government informed us that they will deport them back by force, but we also told them that we won’t accept,’’ he claimed.

Earlier this year, Somalia’s semi-autonomous region of Puntland also refused to receive Somali nationals from the Norwegian government.

Human rights and advocacy groups have voiced their concerns on deportation of Somalis seeking for asylum, saying that it represents a clear violation of international refugee conventions.

Across Europe, tens of thousands of Somalis are in legal limbo, waiting to have asylum claims processed, or under threat of return to the war-torn nation t if their applications have been rejected.

See our extensive archive on Norway by clicking here.

By the way, we have been told the US is deporting Somalis, but I doubt the Obama Administration has put a single one on a plane.

Culture of domestic violence comes to Lewiston, Maine along with African asylum seekers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 2, 2014

Somali community organizer, Fatuma Hussein, quoted in the Lewiston abuse story, lobbies for more welfare for Maine migrants earlier this year. http://bangordailynews.com/2014/05/23/politics/maine-attorney-general-rejects-proposal-by-lepage-administration-to-bar-general-assistance-for-immigrants/

A pregnant Angolan asylum seeker was run down and killed on a Lewiston street last week by her angry ex-fiance and so this story is all about how African women should speak up so that the police can protect them from the cultural norms they brought with them from Africa.

Frankly I am sick of stories about cultural conflicts and problems in Lewiston, Maine, the ‘Little Mogadishu’ of the Northeast.  So check it out yourselves (Portland Press Herald) titled:

Domestic violence often kept hidden by Maine immigrants, refugees

I don’t think the debate should be about how African women should speak up, it should be about why we are inviting so many to the US from cultures that are so diametrically opposed to our culture in respect to women’s rights (and a whole lot of other things).

See also Maine election year battle over welfare for asylum seekers.  And, one of our recent top posts, ISIS fighter had ties to Lewiston.

By the way, Maine has become the go-to state for asylum seekers because the state gives welfare to them while the feds only give welfare to successful asylum seekers who have been granted asylum and been declared a “refugee.”   Many of Maine’s would-be refugees arrive in the US illegally or overstay a visa, head to Maine, and then apply for asylum claiming they will be persecuted if sent home.

Go here for our extensive archive on Lewiston.

Portland, OR: Somali Christmas tree bomber to be sentenced today

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 1, 2014

Update:  Sentenced to 30 years, here.

The government wants 40 years.  It isn’t just Minneapolis producing Somali terrorists!  They must not have enough “programs” in Portland either.

From Oregon Live:

Nearly four years have passed since then 19-year-old Mohamed Osman Mohamud dialed the numbers on a cell phone to set off what he thought was a massive bomb at Portland’s annual holiday tree-lighting ceremony.

He expected thousands of those gathered to celebrate at Pioneer Courthouse Square to die and be injured. Instead, he was arrested. The “bomb” was a harmless fake and the Al-Qaida operatives who helped him plan the attack were undercover FBI agents.

Today, a federal judge is to hand down his sentence in a hearing that begins at 10 a.m. at the Mark O. Hatfield courthouse. While the government is seeking a minimum of 40 years in prison, Mohamud’s lawyers are asking for 10. It is up to Senior U.S. District Judge Garr King’s discretion to choose a sentence of up to life in prison.

For new readers, go here for all of our coverage of the Somali refugee bomb plot case in Portland.

And remember!  As of August 31st (11 months into the 2014 fiscal year) we have allowed 8,278 more Somalis into the US through refugee resettlement.

Minnesota Somalis attempt to explain why their community is so attractive to terror recruiters

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 1, 2014

Update: It isn’t just Somalis in Minnesota, but apparently UK Somalis don’t feel they have enough taxpayer-funded goodies either as two teenaged Somali girls run off to join ISIS.

Powerline blog titles its post—Somalis say: Show us the Money—and then blogger Scott Johnson analyzed a couple of recent news articles where local Somali leaders say they need more night basketball.  Just kidding on the basketball thing, but do your remember Clinton pushing taxpayer funded basketball as a way to solve the crime crisis in black communities—in other words it was all about stuff, about more “programs”.

Somali activist Ilhan Omar: Officials must invest in anti-recruitment programs for Somali youths. We told you about community organizer Omar back in February. http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/02/19/somalis-want-to-govern-minneapolis-but-is-this-how-to-gain-the-confidence-of-the-electorate/

They don’t have enough to entertain the youths so the youths take up with Al-Shabaab or ISIS to while away the time.

Here is how Johnson begins his post and suggests maybe we should put a halt to all Somali immigration (refugee resettlement which is how most are getting in here).   Johnson is just thinking too logically!

We’ve got a problem in the Twin Cities that is based in our large and still growing population of Somali immigrants. Somalis have been immigrating to Minnesota for more than twenty years now. They have taken advantage of all the services that our state and local institutions offer. They have been welcomed with open arms, in Minnesota’s characteristic style.

Yet Minnesota’s Somali community — a/k/a “Minnesotans” — is the most fertile ground in the United States for the recruitment of terrorists by foreign terrorist organizations in Africa and the Middle East. We are concerned that they may choose to return “home” to Minnesota if they don’t get killed first. What is to be done?

Aside from monitoring imams and mosques, the first thought that occurs to me is freezing Somali immigration to the United States. I think this would give us the opportunity to get a handle on the problem while assuring that we don’t needlessly aggravate it.

[....]

In short, I take it from the two articles devoted to the forum that we don’t have a clue and that nothing useful is going to be done.

Read it all.   I am so glad to see that other bloggers and the media in general are beginning to report on this lunacy.

Of course the US State Department did slow the flow of Somalis to America back in 2008 when they discovered that tens of thousands got in here fraudulently, but the resettlement now is going full steam ahead.  The feds and the contractors have too much money at stake in the resettlement process, not to mention the fact that they are cowards!

As of August 31st (11 months into the 2014 fiscal year) we have allowed 8,278 Somalis into the US through refugee resettlement.  That is approaching the large numbers we saw in three consecutive years under George W. Bush, here.

Minnesota got 977 of the 8,278 Somalis resettled in 11 months of fy2014 (here).

Another beheading threat (this time, just a threat) in Oklahoma involves Kenyan immigrant

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 29, 2014

Or at least he says he is Kenyan.  We get a lot of “refugees” and other legal immigrants who pass through Kenya, but are not really Kenyans.  We don’t know how this one—Jacob Mugambi Muriithi—got here, but thought this needed to be posted.

3,972 supposed refugees came to us through Kenya this fiscal year alone.  Kenyans themselves are not considered eligible for refugee resettlement or asylum because their country is relatively stable (except of course if you are the Aunt and Uncle of President Obama!).  Through what legal program did this Muslim get here?

From The Oklahoman (hat tip: Julia):

In a bizarre coincidence, a fired Oklahoma City nursing home employee was arrested Friday after a co-worker reported he threatened to cut her head off.

Jacob Mugambi Muriithi

Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on a terrorism complaint. His bail is set at $1 million.

“We take these threats very seriously,” Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said.

The arrest came on the same day police in Moore revealed fired Vaughan Foods worker Alton Alexander Nolen beheaded a co-worker after he was fired Thursday. Nolen is a Muslim convert.

Muriithi was identified as a native of Kenya who is living in Oklahoma City. He worked at Bellevue Nursing Home in northwest Oklahoma City, police reported.

The co-worker reported Muriithi threatened her while they were both working at the nursing home Sept. 19, a police detective wrote in an arrest warrant affidavit.

The woman was not identified.

She said Muriithi identified himself as a Muslim and said he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians,” the detective told a judge in the affidavit. The two had not worked together before.

If anyone finds out more about Muriithi’s immigration status, let us know!

By the way, we do take a lot of refugees with mental health issues as we have documented in our “health issues category.”

Open a refugee resettlement office in your town and one day be like Eden Prairie, MN

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 27, 2014

Diverse to say the least!

Two of Eden Prairie’s diverse citizens. From a story in March where the Somali refugee duo severely beat a man at a local fitness center apparently for no reason. http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/story/24949729/2-charged-in-eden-prairie-lifetime-fitness-locker-room-beating

In just ten years the school system there has become 36% immigrant—mostly Somali and Latino—and now requires “cultural brokers” for both groups so as to smooth their integration into the system.

Eden Prairie, MN is 12 miles from Minneapolis (enough said!).

This story is mostly about the Somali man who has been hired as the “communications specialist.”  But, what interested me was the list of languages the diverse student body brought to the school system.  Last year the system had 61 languages and now it’s 70!  Can your town afford this?

From the Sun Current:

Eden Prairie Schools have 70 languages spoken by families in the district (English included). This is an increase from 61 last year. The top 10 are in numerical order:

1. English

2. Somali

3. Spanish

4. Vietnamese

5. Hindi

6. Mandarin

7. Telegu

8. Bengali

9. Russian

10. Arabic

Need a refugee lawyer?

As I was looking around for more information on Eden Prairie I got a chuckle when I saw they have TEN “qualified refugee lawyers” in the town of approximately 62,000 residents.   Who says this hasn’t become an industry!  How many qualified refugee lawyers do you have in your town?  Maybe this should be the new gauge—when refugee lawyers move in, it is time to move out!

Minnesota Department of Health tracks refugee health!

Everyone of you from Minnesota should add your name to the mailing list for the Quarterly report on Refugee Health for the state.  See the latest report here.   Note there is a link to sign up for the newsletter.   I think you will be surprised by some of the information there, especially as it relates to TB.  But, the newsletter also has some facts about your refugee populations and how many have come in a given quarter.

For new readers, read ‘Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis.’

About the photo:  I was just scouting out crimes in Eden Prairie and came across this one very quickly.  I didn’t bother to look for others.  I wonder do those “qualified refugee lawyers” do refugee crime cases as well?  Here is most of what one commenter named ‘Red’ said regarding this story:

Locally, they are from Eden Prairie & Sshakopee, by way of Somalia. I am ashamed to admit I was once a supporter of their community integration & diversification. Then I was victimized by way of physical intimidation. Twice. On two separate occasions by men & women both. Now my heart is cold. Instead of taking the kids out, I study self defense.

1980’s Sanctuary Movement being renewed in 2014!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 26, 2014

A large number of Central Americans in the US now entered illegally in the 1980’s thanks to the “help” of churches throughout the US where church members literally sneaked them across the border and distributed them throughout America.

In Maryland, for example, the illegal alien advocacy group—CASA de Maryland—supported today by the Governor and other Democrat elected officials with your tax dollars sprang from the original Communist-leaning Sanctuary Movement of the ’80’s.

Excellent read on what they where up to in the first Sanctuary Movement (but from the perspective of an author who condoned it). Why don’t we have many (any?) books from those who oppose?

By the way, some of those tens of thousands of Central Americans who got in here through Sanctuary ultimately were rewarded with that sham of a LEGAL immigration program—Temporary Protected Status—and are now the ‘family member’ sponsors of the Unaccompanied Alien Children (it all ties together!).

Some churches of the ‘religious Left’ are calling for a Sanctuary 2014 movement!

At least one is a repeat offender since it was a leading church of the underground railroad that shipped illegals throughout America over three decades ago.

There are several stories on the new movement involving churches in mostly Arizona and Chicago (Catholics in the 1980s) so far, but I would not be surprised to learn that some of the 24 churches offering “sanctuary” to illegal aliens are spread across America and may include the Presbyterian Church in Takoma Park, Maryland—CASA de Maryland’s original home.

See one of our posts on the original Sanctuary Movement, here.  If you really want to know more about the 1980’s Sanctuary Movement, see my many posts at Potomac Tea Party Report by clicking here.

And, here is one of several stories this week, this one at Arizona Central:

It started with a church in Tucson offering sanctuary to undocumented immigrants facing deportation.

But now dozens of faith communities across the country are inviting immigrants in the U.S. illegally to seek protection from deportation inside their walls.

They are part of a budding resurgence of the 1980s sanctuary movement, when hundreds of churches offered protection to refugees fleeing civil war in Central America.

This time around, church leaders say, they are responding to the federal government’s failure to reform the nation’s broken immigration system and counter record levels of deportations under President Barack Obama’s administration.

“Our elected leaders have failed to act,” said Alison Harrington, pastor at Southside Presbyterian Church in Tucson, which pioneered the 1980s sanctuary movement and earlier this year began taking in undocumented immigrants facing deportation.

Reader Brad alerted us to the Washington Times report from Wednesday.  And here is another at Breitbart.
