Obama announces Syrian refugee numbers for resettlement to US—4,000 for FY2015

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 1, 2014

But, I don’t buy it! The numbers will be much higher!

The UNHCR has been spouting-off that the US will be on par with Germany in taking Syrians which is 10,000 or more per year!  Also, State Department honcho Simon Henshaw said in Turkey recently that our Syrian resettlement will come close to our Iraqi numbers in recent years which is close to 20,000 per year (approximately 68% of the Iraqis we are taking are Muslims)!

Here is the Washington Post on the FY 2015 Presidential Determination.  Hat tip: Skip

As you read this article with its several references to 2015, remember FY 2015 begins TODAY!

The Obama administration will greatly increase the number of Syrian refugees approved for permanent resettlement in the United States next year but has opted against a separate refugee program to serve victims of that intractable civil war, administration officials said Tuesday.

The State Department is reviewing more than 4,000 applications from Syrian refugees seeking permanent homes in the United States next year or beyond, up from dozens considered for resettlement this year and last, officials said. The expansion reflects determinations by the United Nations refugee agency and the United States that tens of thousands of refugees living outside Syria are unlikely to ever be able to return.

The White House said Tuesday that it has approved permanent resettlement for up to 70,000 refugees worldwide next year, the same figure as for fiscal 2014.

Up to 33,000 could be resettled from the Middle East and South Asia, including Syria. Although there is no set target for Syrian refugees, they are expected to form a far larger percentage of the total than ever before.

The State Department has received more than 4,000 referrals in recent months and is processing them, a State Department official said. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak for attribution, said “large numbers” of Syrian refugees will begin to arrive in 2015.

We are then expected to be grateful to Obama for not setting up a separate Syrian program to bring in even greater numbers which the refugee resettlement contractors must have been clamoring for.  Remember the State Department kept the contractor’s testimony secret from the public here in June.

The Bhutanese resettlement program which the Bush Administration began will be closed we are told, so there will be lots more room in the regional allotment for the Syrians!  We resettled over 8,000 Bhutanese in 11 months of FY2014, here.

So we will increase the number of Muslims entering the US because the Bhutanese are mostly Hindus (60%), Buddhists and Christians.

Next year, Syrians seeking resettlement in the United States will benefit from the closure of a dedicated program for refugees from Bhutan that has brought tens of thousands of refugees to America over several years.

Because all the nations of the Middle East and South Asia are lumped together for purposes of refugee consideration, elimination of special consideration for the Bhutanese gives other applicants from the same region a better shot.

More importantly, the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees has expanded the number of Syrians it screens for resettlement anywhere, including the United States.

The UN picks most of our refugees!

The overwhelming majority of refugees resettled in the United States are first identified as candidates by the UNHCR. The United States then does its own review. The UNHCR hopes to identify 50,000 for resettlement somewhere next year, and another 50,000 in 2016.

The WaPo story mentions briefly at the end that the Presidential Determination released yesterday does not mention Syrians by name at all—of course not!    Would you expect any honesty from this White House in the run-up to November elections?

Update:  Be sure to check the WaPo comments, they are more interesting than the news itself (well almost!).

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).

Michigan writer: we should take all the Syrians and Iraqis we can get!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 29, 2014

I suspect this opinion writer () from Ypsilanti, Michigan writing in The Eastern Echo is connected in some way to federal resettlement contractor US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, but there is no mention of his affiliation and we are thus expected to believe he is just a member of John Q. Public.

Michigan is already in the top five states for Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) immigrant population. http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/02/26/what-is-the-population-of-middle-eastern-and-north-african-immigrants-in-your-state/

From The Eastern Echo (emphasis is mine):

Michigan is the best candidate to accept Iraqi and Syrian refugees, not because of its railroads and factories, forests and rivers, or even because of its system of government, but because of Michiganders themselves. Of the many chapters of the American immigration success story, two of its finest – Polish immigration in the early 20th Century and Lebanese immigration half a century later – were written in Michigan. Michigan may yet write a third.

The situation is this: Iraqis and Syrians are fleeing in the tens of thousands, and Michigan is in need of people. Michigan accepting these refugees would not only be generous but practical.

Mr. Peters then goes on with a lot of the mumbo-jumbo about Polish and Italian immigrants as if they are the same as Middle Eastern Muslims in their world view.  Then he talks about the Christian Middle Easterners as if that is all they will get from Iraq and Syria.  In fact, they will get mostly Muslim refugees from Syria.

The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), a non-profit refugee aid organization, reported that of the more than 120,000 Chaldeans (Iraqi Christians) who made their way to Detroit almost half a century ago, more than half of them are now business-owners, now helping new Iraqi refugees get on their feet in their new state.

Peters:  Michigan ought to “welcome” hundreds of thousands!

The crisis in Iraq and Syria is known well enough. Hundreds of thousands are fleeing. And Michigan, a state that has welcomed Middle Eastern refugees before, ought to welcome these hundreds of thousands who are feeling [fleeing?--ed] the region today, and encourage one generation of Middle Eastern Michiganders in preparing the next.

Michiganders need to bombard The Eastern Echo with another point of view!

Michigan is this year in the top five resettlement states, see here.  A few years ago the US State Department, fearing Michigan was in overload, slowed the flow (Detroit News 2008) but it looks like that limited moratorium is off now!

UK: You could be called “racists” for singing about pigs in public

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 27, 2014

I have a lot of more edifying things to write about today, but when I saw this piece from the UK I had to post it (even if we are getting far-afield).

If this is a true account, this is an example of Shariah creep plain and simple.

The Islamists in countries like the UK (with its large Muslim population) are getting more brazen now!  Just wait until our Muslim population reaches a certain level!

Judy and I once thought we might write a blog we would call “Hogs and Dogs” to highlight stories like this one—maybe it’s time for someone to take on that project!

From the Daily Mail (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

A couple were thrown off a bus and branded racists after singing the Peppa Pig theme tune to their autistic daughter, it has been claimed.

Nick Barnfield and Sarah Cleaves were travelling with their daughter Heidi on a bus from Sheffield to Doncaster when the 15-month-old started crying.

The couple, who live in Rotherham, started singing the song in an effort to cheer their daughter up, but say they were branded racists by another passenger and told to get off the bus by its driver.

The couple claimed the woman, who they say was wearing a hijab, took offence to the snorting sounds in the song and believed they were a reference to how pork is forbidden in Islam though this has not been confirmed.

She complained to the bus’s driver, who, it is claimed, then told the couple it would be ‘easier’ for them to get off two miles from their home.

I hope that in the US we still have brave bus drivers—at least for now!

More here and a photo of the couple.

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.

Dead Somali ISIS fighter had ties to Lewiston, Maine

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 22, 2014

One of his wives lives there.

Abdifatah Ahmed aka Abdirahmaan Muhumed (29), killed in Syria last month, left behind nine kids. http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/08/28/minnesota-somali-refugee-believed-to-be-second-american-killed-while-fighting-with-isis/

The Lewiston Sun Journal has a long interview with one of the wives of a Jihadist killed while fighting for ISIS.  He had two children with her.

This should be no surprise to anyone, but the interview gives us a little more understanding of the Somali community and the back and forth going on between Somali headquarters in Minneapolis and other cities with large Somali refugee populations.

By the way, this wife, who is not identified, arrived in Lewiston in the early waves of Somalis who moved to Maine when they didn’t like their first refugee resettlement site in Atlanta, GA (See our 2009 post about Maine as a welfare magnet).

Sun Journal (hat tip: Carol and Jeff):

“Amaani” describes it as feeling like she can’t swallow, as sudden and horrifying as a tornado, like a psychological bruise. And so unexpected.

Growing up, Abdifatah Ahmed had been the brother of her childhood best friend. He was kind, fun. They married in 2010. He eventually moved into her Bartlett Street apartment in Lewiston, then bounced between Minnesota and Maine. It took two years before the marriage imploded.

He wanted a second wife. She didn’t. [Note that they are talking about have more than one wife at a time as if this is perfectly legal in America!---ed]

A week after their divorce last fall, she would later find out, he left the country.

Ahmed traveled to Syria and joined ISIS, the radical Islamic group that has beheaded three Western journalists, carried out other public executions and killed thousands in taking over large areas of Iraq. According to news reports, Ahmed died fighting there last month with another Minnesota man.

Amaani said the FBI has visited her three times.

Read it all—very enlightening!

Immigration is key to the “stealth jihad” says Muslim convert to Christianity

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 21, 2014

WND investigative journalist Leo Hohmann has done it again!  He has been putting the pieces together over recent weeks to educate us about the goal of Islam in the world and especially in America.  (Click here to see Hohmann’s series on Islam, immigration and the refugee resettlement program!).

Along the lines of what we mentioned this morning about the “new colonizers” here is the latest from World Net Daily (Secret weapon to take over America revealed). It’s long but worth reading every word.  Emphasis below is mine:

Much has been reported about Latin Americans sneaking across the U.S. southern border, but there may be a greater danger looming in America’s heartland in the form of nearly 2 million Muslims who have made their way to the U.S. since 1992.

And, unlike the surge at the southern border, most of those coming from the Middle East have done so legally, with the full support of the U.S. federal government.

Scholars such as Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller and Daniel Pipes have warned for years of the Muslim Brotherhood’s doctrine of immigration, or “al-hijra,” as the long-term strategy to transform America into a different type of society – one that subjugates all other religions under Islam.

Now, another man has stepped up to sound the alarm. And his credentials make him hard to ignore.

Dr. Mark Christian, an obstetrician and former Egyptian Muslim with direct family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, is talking a lot these days about “stealth jihad.” He says it’s the Brotherhood’s way of exploiting liberal immigration policies while working relentlessly through various Islamic front groups to pressure government, education and religious institutions to make concessions to Islam.

Stealth Jihad in the churches!

Don’t you ever wonder if anyone in the US State Department or in the “church” groups resettling refugees ever ask themselves if they could be destroying America?

The article is filled with facts, graphs, comments, but near the end is one section that interested me greatly:

It is through these three groups [CAIR, ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) and the Muslim Students Association] that the Brotherhood wages “cultural jihad,” or what Christian calls “stealth jihad.”

“They want to influence the whole United States,” Christian said. “They see the U.S. as three things – it’s a government, it’s a religious institution and it is colleges and education; so we have three organizations and all are designated to each one of those things.”

ISNA concentrates mostly on outreach to Christian and Jewish religious groups.

“They say they are building bridges, but in reality they are building death tracks for these churches, watering down their theology, trying to influence the Christian teachings of the Bible and find common ground with Islamic teachings,” Christian said. “Basically they are trying to find common ground so they can kill it.”

He cites the Shoulder-to-Shoulder movement as one of ISNA’s crowning achievements.

Shoulder-to-Shoulder is a coalition of 20 religious groups that includes many of the major Christian denominations. Members include the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, the United Church of Christ, the Episcopal Church in the USA, the Presbyterian Church (USA), the Reform Judaism movement and left-wing organizations such as Sojourners magazine.

Their stated goal is to fight “anti-Muslim bigotry,” but that’s just the window dressing, Christian says.  [Christian goes on to say they don't bother with the little churches, only the large denominations.----ed]

The New Colonizers by David Solway

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 21, 2014

Reader Paul directs us to Powerline blog here which begins with this line:

We have a profoundly serious problem of illegal immigration, but we also have a problem of legal immigration, Unfortunately, it is a problem that can barely be discussed.  Is there anyone who thinks the continued stream of Muslim immigration from countries with active jihadist groups is a good idea?

Yup!  The US State Department and all of its refugee resettlement contractors*** think it’s a perfectly good idea and we, at RRW, have been discussing it for years.

Powerline then directs us to Canadian writer David Solway who says this, and much more, here at PJ Media last week:

How, some of us on this side of the Atlantic have begun to ask, have these people with their baggage of noisome and culturally vetted proclivities come to be among us? For years we have taken no notice, content to embrace the sedatives and platitudes of multiculturalism, until a moment comes when we are abruptly made aware and taken aback by an alien and unaccommodating presence, one that has been metastasizing for decades while we voluntarily turned a blind eye.

[....]

Anyone with a modicum of perceptiveness must be cognizant by now that Islam is advancing its millennial agenda in two ways, that is, via a classic pincer movement: the tactic of terrorism, and the strategy of immigration as elaborated by the Muslim Brotherhood, the latter project an immensely powerful force owing to its stealthy and insidious nature, abetted by leftist and liberal sympathies and policies. By this time its cover should have been blown, and we must begin to speak out, to agitate for legislation to revise our immigration protocols, to reject outright the social camouflage of political correctness, to expose “outreach” and “interfaith” programs for the confidence games they are, to investigate the hotbed mosques spreading like bunkers throughout the land, and to lobby our congressional and parliamentary representatives to pass laws militating against the depletion of our welfare resources, the exploitation of our legal system to silence critics of Islam (known as “lawfare”), and the use of our human rights tribunals that deprive us of our…human rights.

[....]

There is no longer any excuse for apathy, distraction or ignorance, for the evidence of our approaching dispossession is all around us.

Read it all.

And, then learn about Al-Hijra, the Islamic Doctrine of Immigration.

***Federal refugee contractors and enablers of Al-Hijra

Michelle Malkin: Letting in the wrong refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 19, 2014

Great column today by Michelle Malkin a must read!

***Don’t forget Syrians are next!***

Iraqi refugee, Jasim Mohammed Hasin Ramadon, found guilty of brutal Colorado rape, was helped by US soldier to get into US.

Meanwhile the Washington Post said late yesterday, bring in MORE Iraqis!  (Hat tip: Flying Camel)

From Townhall (hat tip: Judy):

Fresh terror busts in Australia expose a common Achilles’ heel of the West: Indiscriminate refugee policies turn free countries into breeding grounds for jihad. It’s the same game in America. Soldiers of Islam have weaponized our blind generosity against us.

Iraqi terrorists and rapists…

Last fall, FBI agents admitted that several dozen suspected terrorist bomb-builders may have mistakenly been allowed to move to the United States as war refugees from Iraq. These include two al-Qaida in Iraq (AQI) jihadists who were resettled as refugees in Bowling Green, Ky. — and then later admitted in court that they had attacked U.S. soldiers in Iraq, according to ABC News.

In Colorado Springs, a gang of Iraqi Muslim refugees monstrously raped and brutalized a woman — after being welcomed here with open arms and, in at least one case, receiving praise and help from U.S. soldiers.

Read it all by clicking here.

See our report on the Colorado Springs rapists, here.

Just last week we gave readers this accounting of how many Iraqis have been admitted to the US since 9/11.

Israel could be overrun by refugees says professor

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 19, 2014

If ISIS moves on parts of Jordan, Professor Arnon Soffer, sees the real possibility that Israel could be overrun.

Professor Arnon Soffer: Israel must prepare for demographic turmoil.

From the San Diego Jewish World:

HAIFA (Press Release) — “In a region of collapsing countries that are in states of internal and external war, Israel must prepare for waves of immigrants from Arab countries to its territory, which may endanger its existence,” maintain Prof. Arnon Soffer, who holds the Reuven Chaikin Chair in Geostrategy, University of Haifa, and Dr. Anton Berkovsky, in a new article by the Chair. According to Soffer and Dr. Berkovsky, waves of immigrants already constitute a real danger to the future of Jordan, and the worst-case scenario would be if ISIS gained control of territories in Jordan and added them to its caphilate.

According to the data presented in the article, 2013 showed a global record of immigrants in the world of more than 232 million people, who constitute about 3.2 percent of the world’s population. However, according to Soffer, the picture in the Middle East is particularly clear: “We have a globally unique demographic event occurring. The population of the region doubled within 30 years (1950-1980), and doubled itself again within the 30 years following that. That is one of the main reasons why the Middle East has entered a demographic, economic and political spiral, resulting in disorder and instability.”
