Report: Minnesota not “nice” enough to refugees/illegal aliens

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 6, 2014

Our Minnesota readers will be angered (or rolling on the floor laughing) at this news!

Robin Phillips: Minnesotans violate refugees/migrants human rights!

From the Star Tribune (hat tip: Robin).  Emphasis is mine:

Despite a self-professed sense of acceptance of newcomers and a well-worn notion of “Minnesota Nice,” the state does not provide some of the most basic protections to the more than 350,000 immigrants and refugees living here, a new report claims.

From public safety policies that force immigrants to live in fear of deportation to some of the worst racial disparities in the nation in income, health, and educational outcomes, the failures undermine the state’s values and squander the potential resources newcomers can contribute, according to a report from the Advocates for Human Rights, a Minneapolis-based nonprofit.

The study, “Moving from Exclusion to Belonging,” looks at a number of federal policies that the report says have combined to create a sense of exclusion. Those include what it calls “meager provisions” of a maximum 90 days of assistance for refugees after arrival, and a six-month wait before asylum seekers become eligible to apply for a work permit.

[....]

“Laws, policies and practices exclude immigrants and refugees from full participation in our community and violate their human rights,” said Robin Phillips, executive director for the organization.

Read it all!

And, then you might want to revisit this old post from 2011,Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis, where we learned that it was due to the “welcoming” social services in Minnesota that US resettlement contractors (Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services and World Relief)  have been pouring them into Minnesota for more than 25 years!   We recently learned that secondary migrants are flooding into Minnesota as well.

This is one of the strategies we see all too often—Leftists write reports and then use them as news hooks.

Albany, NY: Another brutal crime by an Iraqi refugee; major media breakthrough

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 5, 2014

 Update April 6th:  Saturdays in springtime are usually slow days here, but this post went through the roof yesterday, thanks to all who sent it around on facebook!

The US State Department and their Catholic contractor should be shaken by this one.

The crime is nothing new, but the reporting sure is!

Iraqi refugee could get 25 years for brutal rape

Here is what happened according to the Albany Times Union and reporter Robert Gavin (emphasis below is mine):

Albany

A jury needed less than two hours on Thursday to convict an Iraqi refugee of brutally raping a 19-year-old woman behind a trash bin in Colonie after meeting her at a downtown bar last year.

Salam Al Haideri, 24, of Niskayuna, faces 25 years in prison after the jury of nine men and three women found him guilty of predatory sex assault and first-degree rape.

[....]

Al Haideri and a friend had met the victim, whom neither man knew, at the Buddha Tea House club on North Pearl Street in the pre-dawn hours of June 2, 2013. The 4-foot-11 woman got in their car and, during the ride, Al Haideri touched her. She said she wanted to go home and she and Al Haideri argued. When Al Haideri’s friend stopped the car, Al Haideri yanked the woman out of the car and took her behind a trash bin behind “I Love NY” pizzeria on Central Avenue by Vly Road, Cleary said.

Al Haideri smashed the victim’s face into the pavement, ripped open her shorts and raped her for 12 minutes as she begged him to stop, Cleary said.

“This is an act of just pure anger,” Cleary told jurors. “When she started to fight back, he beat her into submission and then he took what he believed he was entitled to.”

Cleary showed the jury a photo of the victim smiling before she went out that night. She then contrasted that with an image of the woman at Albany Medical Center Hospital, where she lay bloody, beaten and bandaged.

“Someone just doesn’t come out of a consensual sexual encounter looking like that,” a man on the jury said after the verdict.

Breakthrough in media coverage!

Here is the most important part of the story at the Times Union, and for this we owe reporter Robert Gavin a debt of gratitude.  When we first began RRW back in 2007 (and for years until most recently),  stories like this one would describe the convicted rapist as an “immigrant who found his way” to Albany—the ‘R’ word was never mentioned!

Not only is the sacrosanct word “refugee” mentioned here, but the Iraqi criminal’s resettlement through a “federally funded program” and by Catholic Charities under contract to the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is discussed!

Al Haideri is the third Middle East refugee — all brought to the Capital Region under the same federally funded resettlement program — to be convicted of a sex crime since 2010.

[....]

The conviction follows the sex crime convictions of Walid Nehma, 30, an Iraqi refugee who once was a housemate of Al Haideri, and Salah Mhawesh, 34, an Egyptian refugee. All three settled in the Capital Region with help of a program run by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany under a contract with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services.

In December 2009, Nehma struck a woman in the face, forced her to the ground, tore her pants open and tried to rape her as she screamed for help in a desolate area next to Capital Repertory Theater. He is serving a 5-year sentence at Great Meadow Correctional Facility in Washington County for attempted rape and is due to be released on Dec. 3. Mhawesh pleaded guilty in 2012 to first-degree sex abuse of a woman in his home on Central Avenue. He was sentenced to one year in the Albany County jail, which became time served.

When Al Haideri testified Wednesday, Cleary also questioned him about the assistance he received in jailhouse conversations with Jacqueline Foster, 73, of Niskayuna, his foster mother in the refugee resettlement program.

Al Haideri lived with Foster, who had also allowed Nehma to live with her family for a time.

Incredible!!!

Reporters and thus the public are beginning to understand how it is we have so many refugees living in especially “preferred resettlement sites” like Albany.

Note also the sickening story from Syracuse earlier in the week about a Catholic Church becoming a mosque—that conversion was attributed to an increase in the ‘refugee’ population there, so bit by bit (hopefully) the political correctness that has dominated the mainstream media and kept it silent about the Refugee Program of the US State Department/UN is disappearing.

LOL!  The next step is to bill the US State Department for the refugee criminal trials occurring with greater frequency now!  And, while they are at it they could foot the bill for his next 25 years behind bars as well (and maybe the Catholic Bishops could throw in some cash too!).

Wyoming, are you ready for this?

El Cajon: Murder trial begins for Iraqi refugee at center of 2012 fishy hate crime story

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 3, 2014

Kassim Alhimidi, right, leaves after a memorial for his wife, Shaima Alawadi at a mosque, March 27, 2012, in Lakeside, Calif. http://abcnews.go.com/US/husband-arrested-murder-iraqi-american-family-claimed-hate/story?id=17682675

Diversity is strength alert!

Remember this from April of  2012: an Iraqi man whose wife wanted a divorce apparently created a fictional hate crime to cover up the bloody murder of his wife.

This all happened at about the same time as the Trayvon Martin story was making headlines.

This is what we said on April 1, 2012:

CAIR and the Muslim grievance lobby are trying oh-so-hard to elevate this tragic murder of a young Iraqi mother in California to be on par with the Trayvon Martin circus in Florida.   I’ve been reading about the case elsewhere and there is something fishy about it.

The Reuters story at the time even dragged in the scumbags at the Southern Poverty Law Center!

Now, on Tuesday, at the Times of San Diego:

Opening statements are scheduled for Tuesday in the murder trial of an Iraqi immigrant accused of fatally beating his wife in their El Cajon home after she asked for a divorce.

Kassim Alhimidi, 49, is charged with killing Shaima Alawadi, 32, also an Iraqi immigrant.

The defendant was arrested on Nov. 8, 2012, by El Cajon police in what was first thought to be a hate crime. His wife was found mortally injured with at least six head wounds in their Skyview Street residence eight months earlier.

First-responders found a note in the home that read, “This is my country, go back to yours, terrorist.”

How many Iraqis in America?  Who knows?  Remember there were earlier waves of Iraqis being resettled here prior to the latest huge wave.

From 2007 until April 30, 2013, we resettled 84,000 Iraqi nationals to the US.   So, by now we have surely surpassed the 100,000 mark with more on the way.  From the USCIS:

Since the inception of the program in 2007, 203,321 Iraqi nationals have been referred to the USRAP for resettlement to the United States. USCIS has interviewed 142,670 Iraqi refugee applicants; approved 119,202 for resettlement and, 84,902 Iraqi refugees have arrived in the United States.

Our Iraqi refugee category has 609 previous posts archived.  The most recent one, before today, is the South Dakota Iraqi sex trafficking sentencing, here.  Keeping our court systems busy!

Wyoming: County GOP says NO to refugee program for the state

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 2, 2014

Demonstrating that the issue of whether Wyoming should become a UN/US State Department resettlement site is becoming a political hot potato—the Natrona County GOP has said No to the scheme.

New readers, click here, for all of our previous posts on Republican Governor Matt Mead’s invite to the feds to help the state plan for refugee resettlement for possibly Gillette and/or Casper, Wyoming.

The federal government and its contractors are running out of ‘welcoming’ sites for dropping off refugees, so Wyoming represents fresh territory!

Natrona County includes Casper.  We spotted this tiny bit at the end of this story at the Casper Star Tribune (btw, the Tribune has editorialized in favor of refugee resettlement):

Other measures adopted by the party at the county convention:

*The party opposes the introduction of refugee camps or participation in refugee resettlement programs in Wyoming.

Wyoming is the only state without a formal refugee resettlement program. Gov. Matt Mead and others are trying to learning more about refugees and evaluating options to possibly create a plan in Wyoming for refugee resettlement.

If you missed it, be sure to see Don Barnett’s excellent op-ed also at the Casper Star Tribune.

Two Burmese suspected murderers apprehended coming back into US from Mexico

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 2, 2014

This is a very strange story from the Border Patrol to the Laredo Sun (hat tip: Gary) and I surely can’t guess why two Burmese (they have to be refugees we resettled in the Dallas area) are caught coming back into the US.

Apprehended walking back across the Gateway to the Americas bridge into Laredo.

Here is the whole short news account (emphasis mine):

LAREDO, TEXAS –U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Laredo Port of Entry apprehended two men wanted in connection with a homicide that occurred in Dallas, Texas on March 24, 2014.

“The importance of the work that our CBP officers do in conducting interviews with individuals that present themselves requesting admission into the U.S. can be underscored with the apprehension of these two individuals who were being sought for their alleged involvement in the death of a man in Dallas, Texas,” said Jose R. Uribe, Acting Port Director, Laredo Port of Entry. “Through the collaboration between our federal and state partners, this case was able to be brought to light, resulting in the interception of these men to face the charges that are alleged against them.”

The arrests of the fugitives occurred yesterday Thursday, March 28, 2014 at the Gateway to the Americas Bridge when CBP officers encountered two 18-year-old citizens of Burma that arrived as pedestrians. A CBP officer at primary inspection referred pedestrians A. Soe and Naing Myo Swe, both resident aliens residing in Dallas, Texas who did not present any identity or citizenship documents for a secondary examination. During the examination, CBP officers verified both A. Soe and Naing Myo Swe’s identity, citizenship and confirmed that they were wanted by the Dallas Police Department on outstanding warrants of Murder and Tampering with Evidence. After confirming the warrants were active, CBP officers turned both men over to FBI and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents for transport to Webb County Detention Center pending extradition by Dallas authorities.

The alleged murderers are very likely refugees resettled by the US State Department and its contractors in Texas. That is how most Burmese have come to live in the US.  LOL! They don’t “find their way” to Texas as news accounts so often report.

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. Our most horrible Burmese murder case (so far) was the one in Utah where a Burmese Muslim man raped and murdered a little girl.

Minnesota: East Africans jumping into American political system

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 2, 2014

Photo by John Cross: Mustafa Jamale, an aide to U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, speaks Monday at Minnesota State University during a panel talk on political activism in East African communities.

That is the subject of a panel discussion held this week at Minnesota State University.

From Mankato Free Press (emphasis is mine):

MANKATO — For a time, Somalis in Minnesota had something of a suitcase mentality as many wondered if their time here was temporary, said Hashi Shafi of Minneapolis.

For that reason, and because it was something of a foreign concept, many people didn’t participate in American democracy.

“To unpack our suitcases takes time,” said Shafi, director of a civic education nonprofit in Minneapolis.

But unpack they have, as evidenced by the Somalis who are organizing their communities politically.

Shafi and two other East Africa natives visited Minnesota State University Monday for a panel discussion on political activism among Somali and Ethiopian immigrants.

 It is very difficult to find population numbers for Somalis in the US now, so this next bit of information is useful:

There are an estimated 100,000 Somalis and 30,000 Ethiopians in Minnesota.

Read it all by clicking here.

New readers might wish to visit this older post—Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis?—still one of our most-read posts at RRW.   Guess who resettled the Somalis in Minnesota?  If you guessed any one of these, you are right:   US Conference of Catholic Bishops/Catholic Charities, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, and World Relief (evangelicals)!

Iowa: Refugee family of 12 gets “Habitat for Humanity” house

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 1, 2014

Readers, this must mean good news for Iowa—-the state has no more American citizens in poverty! 

Just kidding of course, but honestly the average American reads a story like this one and asks:  What about our own poor people?

From AP at the Houston Chronicle (hat tip: Joanne):

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The war is long behind them, as are their days living in forests and refugee campus, but life for Abdineko Mausa and Andjela Uredi’s family of 12 remains a difficult one.

For nearly two years, the Congolese family — with 10 children ranging between 2 months to 21 — have lived elbow-to-elbow in a tiny Johnson County apartment.

[....]

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports (http://icp-c.com/1nWNHCV ) that will change this fall, however, when the family moves into a newly built six-bedroom, two-bathroom home — the largest ever constructed by Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity. The Iowa City-based organization has put nearly 100 families in homes over the past two decades — including many refugees — but likely none as large as Mausa and Uredi’s family.

The article then gives readers some facts on the Iowa refugee program.  Not mentioned here, however, was the big flood of Bosnians Bill Clinton sent to Iowa for his meatpacking buddies.

Through the United Nations Refugee Agency, the family came to Fort Worth, Texas, in 2010. They eventually relocated to eastern Iowa, where they’ve lived since 2012. Mausa has a job on a factory line through a local staffing service, and they rely on government help, as well as local charities, to get by. The family’s three youngest children were born in the U.S., where Mausa and Uredi are currently working toward citizenship.

John Wilken, bureau chief for Iowa’s Bureau of Refugee Services, estimates that more than 50,000 refugees have settled in Iowa since the state’s program began in 1975. That number, however, doesn’t include refugees who have since left the state, or who — like Mausa’s family — are considered secondary migrants because they previously lived in another state.

Over the past five fiscal years ending in 2013, 2,580 refugees settled in Iowa, though just 31 were from the Congo. In recent years, the Burmese have been the top refugee group arriving in Iowa, followed by the Bhutanese and Iraqis.

Wilken said for refugee families, finding housing during the recession and the years after has been doubly difficult.

Yup, but they keep bringing them in anyway!

I wonder do Gillette and Casper, Wyoming have big inexpensive apartments and houses for rent?

Syracuse: Refugee group buys Catholic Church, will be converted to a mosque

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 30, 2014

….because Muslim refugee population is growing.

It is a cold and rainy Sunday morning and I’m not easily discouraged, but I have to say this story is depressing.  Most people don’t understand that Islam marks its victories by turning Christian churches into mosques.  Surely there are other buildings available in Syracuse.

***Update*** American Thinker has published a post on this travesty today as well.  Thanks to Judy for bringing it to my attention.

***Update April 4*** Landmark Preservation Board wimps out—crosses to be removed, here.  Hat tip: Caroline

From CNYCentral:

For close to six decades, Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church on Syracuse’s north side was Anna Giannantomio’s church. She fought the Catholic Diocese decision to close it in 2010. While she believes everyone should be free to practice the religion they choose – she doesn’t understand why a new Islamic society wants to remove the crosses and move into the historic catholic church.

“This place was put into historical preservation and rightfully so,” said Giannantomio.

Crosses to be removed:

Holy Trinity was recently purchased by the North Side Learning Center, a volunteer group that assists refugees and immigrants. North Side Learning Center will lease the church to an Islamic society which would rename it Mosque Of Jesus The Son Of Mary. The North Side Learning Center has also filed a request with the Landmark Preservation Board to remove the crosses on the steeples and grounds.  [Those who care in Syracuse should file a protest with the Preservation Board---ed]

Professor Margaret Thompson from Syracuse University’s Maxwell School says nearly 75% of refugees settling in Syracuse are Muslim and that religious freedom has been bringing immigrants to America for hundreds of years.

“Holy Trinity was founded to welcome German immigrants to Syracuse when it was originally built and now its welcoming a new cohort of immigrants,” said Thompson.

Anna Giannantomio wants everyone to have a place to worship. She immigrated from Italy as a teenager and understands the discrimination many Muslims face in America but Giannantomio wishes the church that welcomed her to the U.S. would stay a Catholic church.

“I don’t want to hurt anybody but the building should remain as it is,” said Giannantomio.

The North Side Learning Center is now making repairs to the buildings. They hope the mosque will be ready to open in June.

Syracuse refugee program is changing and we recommend if you live there you need to start researching and reporting to your local community. The Northside Learning Center is probably operating on taxpayer dollars so you have a right to demand more information about their activities.

Syracuse is a preferred resettlement site chosen by the US State Department, the Office of Refugee Resettlement (HHS) and the contractors.

New York is one of the top states with a large African and Middle Eastern Muslim population, here.  Demographic change is what it’s all about.  Once they get the population numbers almost nothing else matters.

Ironically the largest resettlement contractor, bringing the most Muslims to your towns and cities, is the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Is yours a “welcoming” city or state? If not, expect a visit from Lubell and company

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 30, 2014

Clarkston, Georgia has signed up!

Yesterday, I gave you the latest ‘diversity is strength’ alert from Nashville, TN (Muslim immigrants busted for selling drugs from convenience stores), and I mentioned “Welcoming America” again which is the spawn of David Lubell* and “Welcoming Tennessee.”

Check out this useful graphic I found at “Welcoming America’s” website:

 Clarkston, GA!

Also, their top story was one we missed from earlier in the month—Clarkston, GA, an overloaded refugee resettlement city, has become their 29th “Welcoming City,” this at the same time that the Governor has persuaded the feds to stop sending refugees there.

Learn more about the refugee and immigrant overload in Georgia by clicking here (A pocket of resistance in the land of Jimmy Carter).

It is amazing to me how ballsy propagandists are, the average person would have no idea of the problems that Atlanta and its suburbs have experienced as the refugee and immigrant population explodes.  To read this one would think everything is just, well, beautiful.

“Welcoming America” is a federal contractor of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (Health and Human Services) so this is being done with your tax dollars.

From “Welcoming America” regarding Clarkston:

Clarkston Becomes 29th City in Nation to Join Decatur, Georgia based Welcoming America’s Welcoming Cities and Counties Initiative

Mayor Terry: Looking forward to working more with ‘Welcoming America’

Clarkston Mayor Ted Terry signs Welcoming resolution for the city.

On March 4th, 2014, Mayor Ted Terry and members of the Clarkston City Council passed a Welcoming Resolution, committing the city to building a welcoming and neighborly community in which diverse residents, including immigrants, are welcome, accepted and integrated.

Through the resolution, the City also joins Welcoming Cities and Counties, an initiative of Welcoming America that supports locally-driven efforts to create more welcoming, immigrant-friendly environments that maximize opportunities for economic growth and cultural vitality and position communities as globally competitive, 21st century leaders. Welcoming America is a nonprofit organization based in Decatur, Georgia that works across the U.S. to create inclusive, immigrant-friendly communities that expand prosperity for all residents.

The resolution (full version available here) recognizes that a welcoming community is critical to economic success for all residents, and identifies that Clarkston is committed to “enhancing its cultural fabric, economic growth, global competitiveness and overall prosperity for all individuals in the current and future generations who choose to make their home in the city.”

Said Clarkston Mayor Ted Terry, “I’m gratified that this was a grassroots effort. The residents of our city got together and worked out the details – and our government has responded in full support of Clarkston becoming a truly Welcoming community. In light of recent events, over the criminalization of gays and lesbians, in Uganda – our city felt it was important to add language that codified ALL people are welcome in Clarkston, including gay, lesbian and transgendered folks. It is incumbent upon our government to provide opportunity for all residents of our city. And I am looking forward to working with Welcoming America on a framework for the future welcoming policies of Clarkston.”

“This is a wonderful affirmation that the diverse character of Clarkston is indeed one of its great strengths,” commented Emily Pelton of Refugee Family Services, a refugee resettlement agency that works in the Clarkston community.

* See Lubell’s bio here.  La Raza gave his Tennessee group an award.

We recommend that if your state has a ‘welcoming affiliate’ that you find out more about it and sign up for any news they send out to their supporters.  Here is information on how to “join” them.

Seattle Mayor: refugees and immigrants need more taxpayer supplied services

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 28, 2014

Get that Wyoming!  There is not enough federal money flowing to refugee resettlement hotspots, so Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is calling on the city’s taxpayers to pony-up more cash.

Seattle Mayor Murray: the City needs to find more money for our refugee overload.

And, the best part of this article in the Seattle Times comes near the end!

Calling the city’s efforts to help immigrants and refugees “understaffed and underfunded,” Seattle Mayor Ed Murray said Wednesday he’ll expand city services, with a goal of strengthening help for those communities.

Murray called on the City Council to approve $409,000 in new funding to double the size of the small Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs and begin work on an action plan that includes expanded access to English-language programs, support for immigrant-owned small businesses, improved relations with the Seattle Police Department and enhanced citizenship programs.

Local ethnic community organizers salivating for more $$$!

Murray said that Washington is the eighth-largest refugee-resettlement state in the nation and that almost 1 in 5 residents were born in another country.

And he said that while many think of refugees and immigrants as living primarily in Southeast Seattle, as many as 25 percent of residents in Northgate and Maple Leaf speak a language other than English.

The morning news conference was attended by many representatives of immigrant communities who said they welcomed increased city attention and resources.

Best part of a very informative article Immigrant entrepreneur myth busted!  This made me laugh out loud:

Aaliyah Gupta, interim director of the Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs, said the city knows that immigrant businesses close at a high rate but doesn’t know all the reasons why.

She said that between 2007 and 2013, 3,950 small businesses opened in Rainier Valley, while over the same period 2,390 closed. Many of those were owned by immigrants, she said.

David Lubell and his “Welcoming America” cohorts have been out peddling this notion that refugees/immigrants open more businesses than Americans do, but LOL!, I guess he is not reporting how many are closing!   The reality here for Ms. Gupta is that refugees get special deals from the federal government (via the contractors) when financing new businesses and simply can’t sustain the trinket shops etc. that they open.   The survivors are the convenience store owners tapping into the lucrative food stamp fraud racket.

Lubell is a contractor for the Office of Refugee Resettlement and he was hired to get your minds right about refugees!

The article ends with a discussion about getting the large number of single, poor, Muslim women together with women police officers to establish trust and cooperation.  Guess there is a problem that we are not being told. Of course, the ‘M’ word is not mentioned.
