Handy directory for US Refugee Resettlement Offices in 180 cities

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 4, 2014

And, there are 350 of them in 180 cities.  That means that in some cities two or more federally-funded agencies are falling over themselves to bring the joys of ethnic diversity to your neighborhood.

We came across this very useful list last night when we reported on the US State Department launch of their new “refugee” program for children in Central America.

Have a look at who is responsible where you live and keep the list for future reference.  Bear in mind that you might not have an office in your town (yet), but may be getting refugees from one of these offices nearby. 

Ha! Ha!  So much for Wyoming not having a refugee program, they sure do have an office listed!

Bosnian refugee murdered by thugs in St. Louis, MO

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 2, 2014

So can we expect Eric Holder to head on out to St. Louis now to comfort the family of the murdered man?

Tributes laid at the scene of the murder.

 

The murder victim’s family believes that  32-year-old Zemir Begic was targeted by the black thugs because of his ethnicity. It is possible. Just checking our archives and I see we have reported other refugees murdered in St. Louis in recent years.  Go here, for those posts.

African Americans don’t always take kindly to the arrival of refugees dropped off in their neighborhoods.  Isn’t diversity grand!

And, who knew that St. Louis had 70,000 Bosnians living in the vicinity?  Clinton brought them to the US to work for his meat packing buddies, remember this post?

Here is the story that was the subject of much discussion today on Fox News and on talk radio.

From the Daily Mail (hat tip: pungentpeppers):

Police in St Louis have made a third arrest in connection to Sunday’s deadly hammer attack on a Bosnian immigrant, charging a 17-year-old as an adult in the slaying.

The arrests of the youths – among them two black teens and one Hispanic - in the death of 32-year-old Zemir Begic came as city officials struggled to tamp down speculations that the killing of the Bosnian man may have been motivated by race or somehow related to the ongoing unrest in Ferguson.

‘There is no evidence that this was a crime occasioned by the race or ethnicity of the victim,’ St Louis Mayor Francis Slay said in a statement Monday.

[….]

Zemir Begic, 32, a South City resident of Bosnian descent, was driving home with his newlywed wife at around 1.15am when police say a group of teenagers approached his car and began vandalizing it.

Begic emerged from his vehicle to try and stop them, at which point the teenagers allegedly attacked him with hammers, striking him in the head, face and abdomen.

The motorist was taken to an area hospital, where he died from his injuries a short time later. His wife escaped unharmed after her husband reportedly shielded her from the attackers with his body.

His family must have been part of Clinton’s gift of cheap labor to Tyson Food, other meatpackers

The family emigrated from Bosnia to the United States in 1996 and settled in Utica, New York, before moving to Waterloo, Iowa, said Begic’s sister from her home in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

‘He loved America,’ she said.

‘We come from Bosnia because we were getting killed and our homes and families were getting destroyed. Never in my life did I think he would get murdered.’

Begic had lived in Arizona as well before moving to St Louis, and had married his wife only months before his murder.

With a population estimated to be around 70,000, St Louis has the largest community of Bosnians outside of Bosnia-Herzegovina.

There is an additional article here which says the Bosnian community has taken to the streets in protest.

We have quite a few posts on Bosnian, mostly Muslim, refugees in the US, click here to learn more.

Endnote:  My posting has been light and sporadic lately because I am working on another project which will be finished by Christmas.

Why are we taking “refugees” from South Africa? (admission in KY Thanksgiving dinner story)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 28, 2014

Reader Robin sent us this on Wednesday, but I didn’t post earlier simply because I didn’t want to sound mean by begrudging anyone a nice Thanksgiving dinner, but today is different—call me mean if it makes you feel better!

You should know that one of the favorite PR gambits of the US refugee resettlement contractors is to get lovely refugees-first-Thanksgiving stories published at this time of year.  They are masters at planting warm and fuzzy propaganda, and that is one reason we write this blog—LOL! to balance the news!

John Koehlinger, Director Kentucky Refugee Ministries: “This is the one holiday we feel like all of the clients can celebrate.” Does he mean whether they are Muslims or Christians?

If you search around today, you will see that stories were published in several cities about the generosity of the contractors (no doubt using your tax dollars!) in feeding a scrumptious dinner to newly arrived refugees (their “clients”).   But, that isn’t why I’m writing.  There were a few lines in the USA Today story that got my attention and I want to share them with you.

Remember that legitimate asylum seekers must be able to prove persecution (for religion, race, or political persuasion) when they get to the first SAFE COUNTRY after leaving their place of persecution.  They are to ask for asylum in that first safe country.   They aren’t supposed to be hopping around the world from safe country to safe country shopping for the best deal!

So why the hell are we taking black African “refugees” from the Rainbow Nation of South Africa which was supposedly built on the notion that no matter what color you were, you were in a country that WELCOMED everyone!

Mulungula “Nico” Mungela is the Congolese ‘star of the story’ (this must be J-school 101, put a sympathetic character in your opening paragraph!) at USA Today and in 2006 he left DR Congo and arrived in South Africa—the Rainbow Nation—a SAFE country.

Now does this sound like a “refugee?”  Within 3 years he had two new Master’s degrees, and a good college instructor job in the Rainbow Nation.   Are we to believe that all that equality talk from Nelson Mandela was a bunch of mumbo-jumbo? (It may be for South African whites, but Mungela was a black man in a country run by all black leaders!).

By the way, this isn’t to criticize Mr. Mungela who just took advantage of a good thing, it is to question UNHCR and US State Department policy that has become a  lawless free-for-all policy without any supervision by Congress where we are just slapping on that refugee label and bringing them in from anywhere!

From USA Today (emphasis is mine):

His journey took him south through Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique and finally into South Africa, by bus, boat, ship, and hitching rides. He was robbed once right in the middle of a road in Tanzania.

Through a Congo pastor who’d rescued him from the beach, he landed a job as a parking lot guard in Durban. Later, after he sent for his family, he secured a loan to return to college and earned two master’s degrees.

Although he and his wife could support their family — he through a college instructor’s job working with special-needs students and Dorcas by operating a home day care — the family still struggled to gain a foothold. The country is still rife with discrimination, Mungela said.  [What! The Rainbow Nation discriminates against blacks? Has anyone told Obama that the whole Mandela rainbow thing is a myth?—ed]

In May 2009, the couple applied for refugee status and resettlement through the International Organization for Migration, which partners with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees. Their category covers survivors of violence.

So now he and his 8 kids largely live on your dime in Kentucky. Wouldn’t it have been of greater benefit to South Africa to leave a well-educated man there to help South Africa?

What are we thinking!  We resettled 322 UN designated “refugees” from South Africa in the first month of FY2015 alone!  See here. I bet not one of them is white, or even Asian, they are likely all black fellow African brothers!

About the photo and Kentucky Refugees Ministries.  In its most recent Form 990 KRM took in $4,703,422 from government contracts as part of a total revenue stream of $5,287,956 which means they are 89% funded by taxpayer dollars in a Wilson Fish state where the resettlement program is run by the federal government’s contractors (with no say by elected representatives of the state government of Kentucky).

When you visit that Form 990 be sure to check out the costs of running this ‘non-profit’ for salaries, office expenses, travel etc.

See our archive on South Africa, here.  And, on Kentucky, here.

One last thing you need to know! We are in the process of bringing 50,000 Congolese “refugees” to America over the next few years.

Eden Prairie, MN losing Somali population due to lack of low-income housing?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 26, 2014

This very lengthy story at USA Today is an important read to learn about the battle that occurred there in recent years over the diversity-created achievement gap in the schools when large numbers of Somali refugees arrived. It is well-worth reading so that your community might be prepared for the day when your Muslim population gets above 3% in your city or county.

I’ve been studying some of the percentages of Muslim populations in certain countries and cities and my guess is that about 3% is the point where demands begin to be made.

According to this article (Diversity in the Classroom) at USA Today, if Eden Prairie does have 4,500 Somalis in a population of 81,000 then they are already in the 5% range:

About 1,800 Eden Prairie residents claimed Somali ancestry on the latest U.S. Census survey, but city officials peg the number closer to 4,500 in a city of about 81,000, making them the city’s largest group of non-European descent….

Statewide, there are at least 32,000 Somalis as Minnesota, like many other states, adjusts to a second wave of immigration that is transforming the nation and our education system.

There is a fantastic “school diversity index” for every state in the nation that is definitely worth seeing.  (Maryland is near the top of the scale with a white school-age population of only 42% compared to Vermont and Maine both with 92% white kids in schools).

I recommend that you read the whole article, but here at the end was a bit that interested me.

Not enough affordable housing means they will move on?

But even with the success of the boundary change, Jama (Ahmed Jama) says he’s seeing something perhaps more troubling: Affordable housing in Eden Prairie is drying up, threatening to reverse the gains in diversity.

Analysts say the city needs more than 1,800 units of affordable housing to keep pace with its population growth. The Metropolitan Council, a local government entity that studies housing, transportation and other civic issues, estimated recently that Eden Prairie needs 1,844 new affordable units by 2020 for local residents working in service industries and other lower-wage jobs. But landlords in Minnesota have the discretion to reject subsidized housing vouchers, says the council’s Libby Starling. “When vacancy rates are falling, landlords can be pickier about who they accept as tenants,” she says.

The result, Jama and others have said, is a steep drop in the Somali population of Eden Prairie — 40% by one estimate, though Starling says she hadn’t seen a drop in the latest Census figures. “If there is a trend of Somalis leaving, it’s probably new enough so that none of our data sources would be able to capture it.”

Jama says the change has actually occurred since 2010, but it’s unmistakable.

We have written on several previous occasions about Eden Prairie, here are those posts.

Liberal, KS meatpacking murder story exploding, why?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 23, 2014

As I mentioned yesterday, this story from Liberal, KS about the murder of a Somali refugee by an African American at the National Beef plant there is a month old.  Yet over the last two days it has taken off with readers apparently mostly on facebook.

Does anyone see any additional news on the story that might have set this post on fire?

‘Pungentpeppers’ reports that there was a settlement there on Friday in which National Beef agreed to pay compensation in a class action lawsuit, but it has no apparent connection to the murder or to the large number of Somali and other refugees employed in Liberal.

For new readers, we write about these meatpacking plants frequently because their need for cheap immigrant labor is one of the drivers of the refugee program.  Our so-called ‘religious’ resettlement contractors work closely with them in key states besides Kansas—Kentucky, Iowa, Nebraska, North Carolina, and Colorado all come to mind.   Type ‘meatpackers’ into our search function and learn more about how these plants are changing the face of rural America (here is just one post you must read).

And, by the way, Senator Jeff Sessions called out BIG MEAT as one of the chief pushers of the Gang of Eight Amnesty bill, here.

You might also search RRW for ‘Kansas’ as we have written extensively on how refugees are destabilizing communities there.

Minneapolis Somali teens shout “I hate gay people” in shocking video

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 19, 2014

Image is from Youtube (GayMuslimMen)

I don’t know why this showed up in my alerts today (in Somali News).  It happened five years ago and we reported on it then, but I figured it was worthwhile to mention again now that our readership has so dramatically increased.

For those of you living in normal American cities, watch the video and see what our friends in Little Mogadishu Minneapolis are up against.

Click here for the video.  The tormented gay man laughs it off (what else could he do?).  If he showed fear something worse than taunting might have happened.

Maybe, if we are lucky, some of the immigrant ‘youths’ in the film have now gone off to join the jihad (and aren’t coming back)!

For more information, see the persecution of homosexuals in Islam, here.

Dallas, TX receives refugees looking for work, Catholic Charities is the ‘head hunter’

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 16, 2014

There is nothing earth-shattering in this Dallas News story.  In fact I’m posting it to show new readers how reporters just lap up refugee none-news put out from the refugee PR machine and translate it into a warm and fuzzy story (the only thing missing in this one is the ‘refugees see first snow!’ but of course this is Dallas).  If you are a new reader and/or from Texas you might find this enlightening.

However, reporters such as this one—Dianne Solis—never go beyond the surface and ask questions like how much is this costing US and Texas taxpayers because Catholic Charities is largely funded by your tax dollars?  Or, are there Texans who need these jobs? (Does Catholic Charities also help poor Texans find work?)  Or, are the Dallas schools struggling with the influx of so many diverse immigrants? Or, how much welfare do the refugees receive even after they reach that mythical goal of self-sufficiency?  (See our fact sheet for the welfare goodies) etc.

From Dallas News:

Mohammad Farah, Catholic Charities of Dallas, trains refugees for job placement. http://www.catholiccharitiesdallas.org/category/employee-stories/

Mohammed Farah shares his story as a refugee from war-ravaged Somalia to a class of fresh arrivals. [Message:  Mohammed hung in there and now works for Catholic Charities of Dallas!—ed]

Dallas and Texas generally top the list of US State Department targets for resettlement:

Today, now working as the refugee resettlement program manager for the nonprofit Catholic Charities, the 51-year-old Farah coaches others on the art of resurrection. And the demand is growing — Texas has led the nation for the last four years in refugee resettlements, and Catholic Charities in Dallas last year handled about 725 cases, or about 10 percent of the state’s total.

During the recent two-day orientation, Farah spoke to about two dozen refugees, ranging from Iraqi engineers to Burmese farmers.

He’s blunt about what it takes to succeed: Prepare mentally for endurance in the labor market. Take any job, any wage, any shift. And smell like a flower, he says. Farah’s point on fabulous hygiene finally provokes some smiles from the serious morning crowd.

Iraqis, Burmese and Bhutanese have led the flow into Texas. Rounding out the top 10 are newcomers from Somalia, Iran, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Cuba, Eritrea, Sudan and Ethiopia.  [Bringing multiculturalism and democrat voters to Red Texas—ed]

Faking you out with the numbers:

“Your first job is not your lifetime job,” he says.

Many stare back glumly. One woman keeps her arms tightly folded across her chest, pressing her fingers into her biceps. [LOL!  see the Dallas News photo for grumpy refugee.]

[….]

Catholic Charities of Dallas finds jobs for 98 percent of those it resettles within 180 days, says Avril Knox, the director of refugee resettlement services for the Dallas agency.

Catholic Charities is in competition with other resettlement contractors for the next batch of refugees so they are all padding their employment numbers to appear more successful than their grant-seeking competitors.

This 98% figure is bogus! It is an example of the Jonathan Gruber syndrome (government can lie to you if it advances their cause).   These agencies work like heck to get refugees signed up for any job just as their reporting numbers are due into the feds. It doesn’t matter if the refugee quits or is fired the next week.  What matters is if he or she is employed on reporting day!

And the Dallas News story wraps up with this instead of an account of the ‘first-snow’ thrill.    I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve seen this—refugee kid wants to be a doctor:

His enthusiasm hits home for one 13-year-old Iraqi girl, who fled with her family to the U.S. She says she’s eager to start school and mathematics classes.

“I want to be a doctor because I like to help sick people,” she said.

Read it all, and if you live in Texas you need to really start digging into the facts and exposing them—start a website on Texas LEGAL immigration news. You have a big fat target on your state!

BTW, Catholic Charities of Dallas was also involved in the Unaccompanied Alien Children mess this summer.

Go here for our archive on Dallas.  One Texas city, Amarillo, has developed a “pocket of resistance” to more refugee resettlement.

Maine governor re-elected, keeps his word, cuts welfare for illegal aliens, asylum seekers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 14, 2014

Longtime readers know we have closely followed the controversy in Maine (archive here) where the state had gained a reputation around the country (and probably the third-world) as the state to go to and apply for asylum.  Why?  Because even as federal law does not say asylum seekers can get welfare during their wait for the legal process to play out, Maine was giving hand-outs to the “undocumented.”

Paul LePage for President? (That little book he is holding is the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution published by the Heritage Foundation.)

Republican Governor LePage vowed to reform Maine’s reputation as the go-to state for taxpayer-funded goodies and he was re-elected in blue New England.

And, btw, it was Maine’s generosity that attracted the first Somalis to Lewiston, Maine.  See our entire Lewiston archive for the mess that created.

Have we found our Marine Le Pen, or Geert Wilders, or Nigel Farage, or Jimmie Akesson, or Matteo Salvini ?

Interesting don’t you think—a whiff of conservatism creeping into New England!

Here is the latest from Reuters:

PORTLAND Maine (Reuters) – Maine’s largest city has begun clamping down on spending as newly re-elected Republican Governor Paul LePage makes good on a campaign promise to cut funding to cities and towns that give aid to undocumented immigrants.

In an internal memo released on Wednesday, Portland city officials said they had frozen hiring and cut travel and overtime spending after their requests for reimbursement from the state for assistance provided to families with children in emergencies had gone unanswered since July.

The budget shortfall could grow to as much as $3 million this year, city officials said, a hefty sum that underscores the increasingly local impact of the tense congressional standoff over national immigration reform.

“We just don’t have that kind of money sitting around, so we need to act prudently,” said city spokeswoman Jessica Grondin. “We’re in a holding pattern until we receive some kind of official response.”

Tea Party-backed LePage, who was re-elected last week with a strong mandate to reform the state’s welfare system, had threatened in June to cut funding to municipalities that give state-reimbursed general assistance to undocumented immigrants.

“Tell your city councilors and selectmen to stop handing out your money to illegals,” LePage said in a radio address.

Then take note of this next paragraph…..

“It basically came down as an edict from the governor,” said municipal association spokesman Eric Conrad. “How can you expect a municipal clerk to determine immigration status when they’ve never done that before, and haven’t been trained?”

Train them!

When I speak with people who know nothing about the immigration horrors going on in America, they are always stunned to learn that NO one EVER asks for documentation relating to immigration status—not colleges accepting students and collecting tuition, not welfare offices, not motor vehicle administration offices and not board of election offices.  I know this from personal experience.  If documentation were required it would cut down ultimately on the number of illegal aliens of all stripes living in America!

Now be sure to go to the Reuters story to see the comments!  As of this writing there are 1,806—mostly supporting the Governor!  And, some suggesting he run for President of the United States.

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.

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.
