Phoenix Liberian gang-rape case dragged on for five years due to cultural unawareness of US legal system

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 23, 2014

Hey, how would you like to use that excuse if you were in trouble with the law, surely they all had American lawyers familiar with our legal system!

Result in most portions of the case—case dismissed.  No deportations!

‘Pungentpeppers’ spotted this update of a story we reported extensively back in 2009.  (Here are six posts dating from July to December 2009).  Why so many Liberians in America, they are “temporary” refugees, here.

The case involved 4 boys who lured an eight-year-old girl into a backyard shed and raped her.  Without going back and reading the old stories, I recall that her parents blamed the girl.  (Were they Muslims?)

And, isn’t this great news, after finding child abuse in the girl’s home, she is sent back to these same parents.

From Arizona Central:

Rape was led by a teenager who admitted guilt and was sentenced to probation. http://www.peopletopeople.info/id485.html

The child abuse case against two Liberian immigrants whose 8-year-old daughter was sexually assaulted at a Phoenix apartment complex in 2009 will be dismissed pending their compliance with the state Department of Child Safety.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Bruce Cohen ordered that the couple, who were arrested in 2009 on unrelated allegations, meet with him three times over the next year to ensure that all child services requirements have been met.

After one year of compliance, the case will be dismissed, Cohen said.

Maricopa County Attorney’s Office spokesman Jerry Cobb said such agreements are not uncommon.

The parents were arrested in July 2009 after their daughter was gang raped at their apartment complex near 43rd Avenue and Thomas Road by four underage boys, police records show.

The case against the parents is unrelated to the rape, but signs of child abuse surfaced as police investigated the sexual assault, records show.

During the investigation, detectives found evidence of abuse that dated back two years, records show.

The Republic is not publishing the names of the parents to protect the privacy of their daughter, who was returned to her parents’ custody last week.

The four boys, who are also Liberian immigrants, were arrested following the reported rape, records show. Police said the boys lured the girl into a shed at the apartment complex and took turns sexually assaulting her.

One of the boys was taken to a juvenile rehabilitation center and placed on probation, records show. The other three were ruled incompetent to stand trial because of their lack of cultural awareness of the United States’ legal system, records show.

The case against the parents took five years to resolve, mainly because they were unfamiliar with the U.S. judicial system. The couple was ordered to be educated in American court proceedings, as well as other cultural differences, records show.

Additionally, the two speak a language so obscure that the court had to call an interpreter from Minnesota to translate the proceedings over speaker phone on Friday.

Note this last line about an interpreter—all of you towns and cities “welcoming” refugees (Athens, GA!) must be aware of the fact that you are on the hook for the cost of interpreter services for just about anything your refugee needs (including when they end up in our criminal justice system).  Imagine what this case cost Maricopa County!

By the way, Phoenix is a “preferred resettlement site” chosen by the US State Department, ORR, and their contractors.

Athens, Georgia! Do you know you will soon be receiving hundreds of third-worlders?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 21, 2014

Athens, Georgia: Here we come!

 

They are not talking about the border crashers from Central America (yet!).

The International Rescue Committee, one of the top ten*** federal refugee resettlement contractors has selected Athens as its next target site to be a new refugee resettlement city.

IRC’s Ellen Beattie: small cities are more “navigable,” so we will bring hundreds of third-world refugees to Athens. Or, should it be, small cities are more naive! Photo: http://clatl.com/atlanta/ellen-beattie/Content?oid=1275176

Readers, this article is full of the usual phony baloney gushy language about how Athens has so many amenities to make it desirable, welcoming, and open to receiving impoverished people from Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

They need fresh territory!

The bottom line, however,  is that they are all (the US State Department, ORR and their contractors) out scouting new locations because they have worn out, or are in the process of wearing out, their welcome in theirpreferred resettlement sites.”

You need to know a little about the International Rescue Committee headquartered in New York City and led by former British Foreign Secretary David Miliband (with his $400,000 plus a year salary).  Click here and follow links.

Below is the story on Athens, they say they will bring Congolese and Burmese, but the top refugees being resettled in the US right now include also Iraqis, Bhutanese and Somalis.  They will get a smattering of all of them.

Georgia readers need to especially note that the IRC implies that they have cleared it with local officials.  Does the governor know?

Truth-be-told, the Atlanta area has become a pocket of resistance to more resettlement which is why they are now spreading out throughout the state and into small cities.

From the Athens Banner-Herald (hat tip: Joanne):

Athens-Clarke County this year will begin welcoming an increasing number of refugees fleeing conflict in their native lands for a new home in the U.S.

The Atlanta office of the International Rescue Committee plans to open a sub-office in Athens by end of the year, and hopes to begin resettling refugee families in Athens as soon as October.

Opening an Athens outpost has been in the works for five years, said IRC Atlantic regional director Ellen Beattie. The organization has opened similar sub-offices in cities like Charlottesville, Va., and Lincoln, Neb.

College towns like Athens have an “international flavor” because of their worldly academic staff, and universities possess strong language resources that new refugee arrivals rely on, Beattie said.

For newly-arrived refugees, whose journey to the U.S. has been long and stressful, a smaller town makes for an easier transition.

“Small towns are more navigable,” Beattie said.

LOL! More “navigable” or more naive?  Smaller towns don’t usually ‘get it’ about what it means for them until the seed community is well-established, then the contractor begins bringing in the relatives and it becomes too late to turn off the spigot.

Beattie said IRC staff has already met with county, school and health department officials to prepare Athens for the refugees’ needs.

The Athens office, at first, will have one full-time staff member, soon increasing to two, and will bring in necessary support.

Beattie said between 120 and 150 people, roughly 40 families, will resettle in Athens in the first year. Most of these refugees will come from Myanmar [Burma--ed] and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Once the office is established, Beattie estimates a city of Athens size can handle up to 250 refugees, about 60 families, a year.

Not mentioned here, but I suspect industries in the Athens area are looking for cheap immigrant laborers.  This article says that Athens is doing well economically.

For new readers from the Athens area, see our fact sheet on refugee resettlement.  And, be sure to visit a Georgia website—Refugee Resettlement Relief—-to learn more about what is happening with refugees in your state.

Georgia has received 1,968 refugees so far this fiscal year (the 8th largest resettlement state) from 40 different locations around the world.  Go to Wraps.net here and click on Arrivals by State and Country to see from where refugees are arriving.   By the way, they previously made public which city refugees were going to but now keep that secret from the general public.

The chart (Arrivals by State and Country) is a little deceptive because, for example, when they say Kenya, that doesn’t mean those are Kenyans, it means they are probably Somalis located in Kenya.  Likewise, we don’t take Malaysians, but hundreds arrived in Georgia from Malaysia this year—they were certainly illegal aliens caught in Malaysia, probably Afghans or Somalis trying to reach Australia.   They could just as easily have a chart for State and Nationality, but this is just one more way to keep you in the dark about who is coming to your state.

Burmese refugee shot by police after taking machete to police dog, threatening officers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 15, 2014

A representative of his refugee resettlement agency says he was mentally ill and the police handled it wrong.  Should have found a translator they say.

This is just one more example of the mental illness we are welcoming to America and the language problems being experienced by police and first responders.  See Waterloo, Iowa just last week, here.

Ja Ma Lo Day (facebook photo)

From Fox5 San Diego (hat tip: Robin):

SAN DIEGO – Friends of a young man with mental illness, who was killed by police after he threatened his family and police with knives and a stick at his City Heights apartment over the weekend, wondered if police could have handled it differently.

Patrol personnel went to the residence in the 3800 block of Menlo Avenue at 10:20 p.m. Sunday on reports that a man was threatening the lives of his family, according to San Diego police.

Officers arrived to find the man holding a knife and a stick and behaving in an “agitated” manner, Lt. Mike Hastings said. As the officers tried to persuade him to disarm himself, he allegedly began threatening them and retrieved a machete.

Officers tried in vain to subdue the suspect with stun guns and police dogs, Hastings said. When one of the canines approached, the man struck the animal on the back with the machete, according to police.

The suspect then allegedly swung the weapon at an officer, prompting two others to open fire. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died at the scene.

The man was identified by friends on a social media website as 21-year-old Burmese refugee from Myanmar named Ja Ma Lo Day. He was oldest brother of four siblings, all Burmese refugees who escaped their country due to religious and ethnic persecution, according to a friend of the family.

He suffered from mental illness and had been involved in several prior encounters with the police, according to the online posting.

How many Burmese are in the US?

Here is one accounting of how many we have resettled over the last 12 years from Burma and camps in Thailand.  They are still coming.

*Burmese refugees resettled in the US since 2001: 97,713

*Chin Refugees resettled in the US since 2001: 30,453

*Karen Refugees resettled in the US since 2001: 57,962

*The rest ethnic groups from Burma in the US since 2001: 9297

This last number above would include Burmese Muslims/Rohingya

Lynn, Mass. again! “Children” straining school system as adult aliens register

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 13, 2014

Unfortunately, I don’t have time to give more background on the problems in Lynn, Massachusetts this morning.  See our previous post here.  But, I did want you to see this story before it’s too old, and I noticed on TV news programs over the last few days that communities receiving ‘unaccompanied alien minors’ are starting to stress about how they can handle the numbers and the health issues.

Here is Ryan Lovelace at National Review Online (hat tip ‘pungentpeppers’):

One of the questionable “children” registering for school in Lynn.

Adult illegal immigrants posing as unaccompanied alien children appear to be attempting to enroll at public high schools, city officials in Lynn, Mass., tell National Review Online.

“Some of them have had gray hair and they’re telling you that they’re 17 years old and they have no documentation,” Jamie Cerulli, the Lynn mayor’s chief of staff, tells NRO. “If my children went to the public schools, I’d be very uncomfortable with all of these unaccompanied minors [that] are placed in the ninth grade.”

Admission of all foreign students — illegal immigrants, refugees, and foreign nationals — has increased by more than 500 students since the 2010–2011 school year, Catherine Latham, the city’s superintendent of schools, tells NRO. Last school year, nearly 250 students arrived from Guatemala, including 126 enrolled in the ninth grade.

[....]

The majority of unaccompanied Guatemalan children arriving in the city hail from the city of San Marcos, Latham says, and are drawn by Lynn’s large Guatemalan population.

See all our coverage of ‘unaccompanied minors’ streaming across our southern border, here.

And remember!  It is not too late to call your state refugee coordinator and ask how many are coming to your state and when.   They will know (they may not tell you!), but ask!

Somalis show their colors in Minnesota house race

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 13, 2014

Diversity is strength alert!  (And, there is another good laugh at the end of this post too!)

For a little break from the invasion at the border, here is an update that ‘pungentpeppers’ found about the increasing violence between both sides (both sides have Somali supporters)—between the “old Jewish lady” and the “Muslim brother” for a seat representing the largest concentration of  Somalis probably in America.

Khan (aka old Jewish lady) vs. Noor (aka Muslim brother)

Our earlier story is here.

From Politics in Minnesota:

The Kahn-Noor race has caused or exposed a rift in Minneapolis’ Somali community that’s led to allegations of violence unprecedented in recent Minnesota campaigns.

Here is the background.  Minnesota campaign need (not yard signs or a voter list)—pepper spray!

The tooth-and-nail contest between 42-year incumbent Rep. Phyllis Kahn and Somali newcomer Mohamud Noor continues to draw allegations of violence, intimidation and voter suppression from both sides of the race. It has also spawned at least two legal disputes.

The complicated relationships that cut across both campaigns can’t be jammed into neat cultural or generational boxes. Kahn, with the help of longtime Minneapolis DFL power broker Brian Rice, has carved out a small but impressive bloc of Somali activist supporters. They include City Council Member Abdi Warsame, who was part of a new guard elected to city government in 2013. Whether that will be enough to blunt the strength of Noor’s support among Somali voters in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood is difficult to tell.

Noor did manage to keep Kahn from securing the DFL’s endorsement at the Senate District 60 convention in April, thereby punching his ticket to their primary face-off on August 12.

“That’s why it’s so intense, and that’s why it’s such a mess: because both sides perceive that this is such a critical race,” political expert David Schultz said. “For Phyllis Kahn, this is it… she’s fighting because this is the first time she’s had a serious fight.”

But Rice and Kahn’s efforts to curry support among Somalis have revealed schisms in the tight-knit community, where two alleged instances of high-profile violence against Noor supporters have marred the campaign so far. One, just last week, has prompted a few Noor volunteers to begin carrying pepper spray, and some volunteers say they are afraid for their safety.

Read it all.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that there are Somali factions fighting on both sides, remember it is just that type of squabbling (and the clan wars) that has ruined Somalia and they have brought their quarrelsome cultural practices with them.  But, as the Lutheran, Catholic and Jewish groups resettling refugees to your towns will tell you again and again—this cultural diversity is sooo beautiful.

Vote fraud alleged!

In our earlier post we reported on the voter fraud alleged in the previous election.  Steve Sailer writing at VDARE asked an important question (when posting on this article)—so how did they become citizens if they can’t understand English?  Here is the quote from the article:

 One alleges that a Minneapolis elections judge named Fadmo called Kahn “an old Jewish Lady” while interpreting the primary ballot for a Somali man who was recently at City Hall to cast his absentee ballot. On the other hand, Fadmo characterized Noor as “our Muslim brother,” the complaint says.

And, here is Sailer’s observation:

If the Somali voter passed the citizenship test, why isn’t he literate in English? Why does he need fellow Somali Fadmo to tell him which squiggle on the ballot represents “our Muslim brother” and which squiggle “an old Jewish lady?”

The white man must stop trying to suppress the right to vote of illiterate Somali citizens; in the spirit of cultural sensitivity, candidates names should appear on the ballots not only in Arabic, but, for the illiterate, should come marked with symbols instantly recognizable to a Somali as Good (e.g., Mohamud Noor’s name could be accompanied by a picture of an AK-47) or Bad (e.g., a sow).

Fun huh!  Eat your heart out if your Somali Muslim population isn’t large enough yet to show you the joys of multicultural political campaign tactics.

One of our top posts of all time is this one from 2011—Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis.

Got a little extra room in your home for a teenager or two? “Help heal wounds” make big bucks!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 12, 2014

The invasion of America continued:

One more outrageous story is making the rounds.  NoisyRoom (the progressive hunter) has this (below), and then links to a Breitbart story from Thursday. (Hat tip: Joanne):

There has not been a ‘refugee’ crisis in the US in my lifetime. The one on our Southern border is a manufactured crisis by Obama and the Progressive Left to employ the Cloward and Piven Strategy*** of overwhelming the system until it collapses, allowing for the Marxist reformation of government. Enter the Office of Refugee Resettlement. ORR is the government agency that is streamlining the entrance of illegal aliens into the US and them assisting them with resettlement. They work with other government funded agencies, such as the Crittenton Services and Foster Family Agency in Murrieta, California. This agency just placed an ad that is offering over 6k a month to house illegal alien children:

Everyone better start checking their small town newspapers!

Crittenton Services is a relatively new subcontractor of the USCCB, Catholic Charities of Los Angeles and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, check it out here!  See also Catholic Bishops hands in your pockets.

Noisy Room: I guess when compassion and guilt aren’t motivating enough, you can always try and bribe Americans.

Our complete archive on ‘unaccompanied minors’ is here.

*** Don’t know about Cloward and Piven?  Visit this post we wrote in 2009 to help explain how refugees and migrants generally are being used to bring down our system of government.  Obama only has two years left to “change” America and they (progressives/government agencies like ORR/churches etc.) are now on the move to get it done.

Iowa: Number of languages/illiterate refugees making fire and rescue work difficult

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 11, 2014

News of the surge of illegal aliens swamping Texas and being driven and flown to other states, has pushed most of our other “refugee” news to the side, but here is one bit of news from a week ago that must be mentioned.

This is a problem we have written about off and on for seven years—by federal executive order (Clinton) local governments/courts are required to have interpreters available for the myriad languages being spoken by immigrants in their communities, but most can’t afford it.

Cough? (Got TB?) COURTNEY COLLINS / Courier Staff Photographer

From WCF Courier (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’).  By the way, note that here we go again with Catholic Charities and meatpackers needing cheap labor!

WATERLOO | Emergency dispatchers and response teams are struggling with a widening language divide as they attempt to service Waterloo’s growing population of non-English speakers.

The communication barrier creates problems for all parties involved, from the dispatcher deciphering a 911 call to the officer trying to put together an accurate police report to the concerned resident trying to communicate a problem with little to no knowledge of the English language.

Over recent years, Waterloo Police have dealt with a slew of languages including Bosnian, Spanish, Serbian, Croatian, Burmese, French and Vietnamese.

In 2006, Burmese refugees began settling in Waterloo for the employment opportunities at Tyson’s meat plant, and the community has been growing ever since.

Dispatchers at the Black Hawk Consolidated Communications Center receive about a half-dozen calls a day in foreign languages.

But resources for interpretation are slim, a Courier investigation shows.

And as refugees from Burma continue to move to the area at a steady pace, bringing with them five vastly different languages, it has quickly become a complex problem to solve.

Nearly 1,500 Burmese refugees have planted roots in the Waterloo area, according to local estimates. That population is expected to reach 2,000 in the next year. In summer months, about two to four households migrate to the area each week.

Stephen Schmitz, who resettles new refugees through Catholic Charities in Cedar Rapids, estimates that more than half of these incoming refugees are illiterate.

There is more, read it all.   Be sure to check out the comments!

I don’t have time to do all the linking but know that BIG MEAT (and its head hunters at the State Department and contractors like Catholic Charities) is responsible for changing the demographics of many small cities in the Mid West and South.  It is a win-win for them—cheap captive “illiterate” labor (refugees cannot go home) that you subsidize them (housing, food stamps, education).  They get to wear the do-gooder white hat and you pay the price! 

How about if the meatpackers, like Tysons, pay for the extra costs to the community—like interpreters!

About the photo:  We are not suggesting that the woman in the photo was asking refugees if they have TB, but readers should know that Burmese especially have higher rates of TB than some other refugee groups.  See our health issues category for more on TB in the refugee population, but here is one post generally making the point.

Colorado refugees lobby for more money for ORR as a result of border surge

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 10, 2014

UpdateAlaska chiming in too—wahhhh! we need money for refugees!  (Hat tip: Joanne)

You have to hand it to them, the refugee industry federal contractors*** sure can gin-up a media/lobbying campaign when threatened with the prospect that their funding (through the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR)) might be slashed.

Republican Rep. Mike Coffman of Aurora, CO: wrong to cut funding for refugees.

Here is a Denver Post story saying much the same as we are seeing around the country—waahhhh! we are going to lose funding because of all the “children” surging across the border.  But, of course they want the children too (as clients and as potential Democrat voters)!

A Colorado Republican Congressman agrees the money shouldn’t be cut!

From the Denver Post:

People who help refugees in Colorado are concerned that their program funding may be diverted to help the unaccompanied children coming over the border, and the refugee community is taking action by visiting local politicians to lobby for their cause.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement — which funds a variety of programs including refugee assistance and the needs of unaccompanied child migrants — has proposed redirecting $94 million in funding from refugee programs to use for the humanitarian crisis of children coming across the borders.

The number of children this year has swamped projections, creating a funding shortfall, and in June the agency notified Congress that it must reduce refugee services.

Here is USCRI again (99% funded by you!):

If Congress approves the emergency funding, there will be no cuts to the refugee programs, said Stacie Blake, spokeswoman for the U.S. Committee for Refuges and Immigrants. But without that funding, she said, across the United States, programs in English as a second language will be eliminated, critical employment programs for refugees will be shut down, and thousands of Americans who serve refugees will lose their jobs.

Refugee lobbying delegation visited Congressional office:

A delegation of about eight refugees recently visited the Aurora office of U.S.Rep. Mike Coffman. Narabada Bhandara from Nepal learns how to make a resume in the workshop at the Africa Community Center in Denver, Colo., Tuesday, July 8, 2014.

“We explained that you cannot solve one crisis by creating another crisis,” said Bhuwan Tyakurel, a community leader with the Global Bhutanese Community Colorado.

Coffman agrees.

“It would be wrong to divert any funding that is already dedicated to serving the African, Burmese, Bhutanese and Nepalese refugees in my district who are already in this country,” he said via email. “No doubt, what is occurring at the border is a humanitarian crisis but arbitrarily punishing one immigrant community for the benefit of another is wrong, and what is needed right now is a solution that stops the problem at our border from getting worse.”

Minnesota report: unvaccinated Somali child was “Patient Zero” in 2011 measles outbreak

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 10, 2014

From Hiiraan:

A new report investigating a recent measles outbreak in Minnesota offers a new window into how the disease can be spread by just one unvaccinated person.

High levels of autism in Somali children in Minneapolis lead parents to not vaccinate children for measles. Photo: NY Times http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/17/health/17auti.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

Here’s how the 2011 outbreak, which sickened 19 children and two adults in Minnesota, happened:

An unvaccinated Somali-American 2-year-old some have dubbed “Patient Zero” traveled with his parents to Kenya, where he contracted the measles virus.

When the family returned to Minnesota, the child showed symptoms, including a fever, cough and vomiting.

But before he was diagnosed as having measles, the child had already passed the virus on to three other children at his daycare center, and another household member, CBS News reports.

Ultimately, more than 3,000 people in in the tight-knit Twin Cities Somali community were exposed to the disease.

[....]

Minnesota Department of Health researchers say that is typical in the Somali immigrant community, where MMR vaccination rates remain low, CBS News reports.

In 2004, the number of Somali children in the state who were on schedule with their MMR topped 90 percent.

“By 2010, that was down to just 54 percent,” epidemiologist Pam Gahr, who led the new research, told CBS.

She says the steep drop in vaccinations stems from misinformation about a link between the MMR vaccine and autism.

See our health issues category with more on measles, autism and other health issues in the US immigrant/refugee population.

Lutherans may be operating centers for ‘unaccompanied minors’ in your state

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 8, 2014

Just can’t get away from it.  The issue of  illegal alien teens (and to a lesser extent women and children) surging across our border is inescapable.  And, so you know that its not just the Catholics cashing in on the crisis, here is the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod with its action appeal for its master—Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services!

We don’t know who the 45 partners are, but below are LIRS subcontractors.

Gotta keep up their real estate holdings! The Lutheran Center (LIRS headquarters) is a six-story structure constructed in 1999 on property owned by Baltimore’s historic Christ Lutheran Church. The building is located near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor in the historic Federal Hill neighborhood, a charming area rich with history and an eclectic array of eateries and shopping venues.

More than 45 Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) partners are providing care and services to help the influx of unaccompanied immigrant children crossing the southern U.S. border in response to what is being called a humanitarian crisis.

That support is being provided at the request of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement — the government body with whom LIRS has worked as an “advocate and strong partner” for the past decade on behalf of the safety of unaccompanied immigrant children, said Kimberly Haynes, LIRS director of Children’s Services.

LIRS was asked “to expand and engage networks” to help meet the growing needs of thousands of children, including many fleeing “horrific” situations in Central America, Haynes said.

Before I give you their state affiliates, check out this post we wrote in May of last year about their finances.  (This was when LIRS was lobbying for S.744).

Have a look at a recent Form 990 for Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, page 9. They had income in that year of $31,653,748 and, of that, you, the taxpayers of America, gave them $30,376,568.  Their CEO* makes $204,186 in salary and benefits.  Where is the ACLU?  No separation of church and state here!   The church is the state!  Just wait until CAIR figures all this out and starts demanding the Muslim share of your tax dollars!

Looks like about 96% of their budget comes from you (the US taxpayer)!

They are probably jumping for joy this afternoon as the word spreads that Obama now wants $3.7 Billion for the “crisis,” a chunk of which will flow into LIRS coffers!  That earlier $2 billion looks like chicken scratch in comparison!

Here is a list of LIRS subcontractors.  If you have one in your town, you might call them and ask if they are bringing illegal alien “children” as an #ActOfLove to your community.  See our May 28th post about LIRS lobbying campaign for the alien minors.  They call it #ActOfLove (if you are on twitter join the fun there!).
