US Bishops’ lobbyist threatens White House with ‘fence jumpers’ if Obama doesn’t act on executive amnesty

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 17, 2014

Of course, Kevin Appleby says he is speaking “politically” when quoted by the New York Times last week here:

Many pro-immigration groups and advocates — as well as the Hispanic voters who could be crucial for Democrats’ hopes of winning the White House in 2016 — are expecting bold action, having grown increasingly frustrated after watching a sweeping bipartisan immigration bill fall prey to a gridlocked Congress last year.

“This is his last chance to make good on his promise to fix the system,” said Kevin Appleby, the director of migration policy at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. “If he delays again, the immigration activists would — just politically speaking — jump the White House fence.”

Money! Money! Money!

For new readers (and everybody) always keep in the back of your mind that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops migration fund is almost completely–98%–funded by federal grants and contracts.  They will benefit financially from an amnesty as they will be tasked with getting the “new Americans” signed up for all their social services.  You probably pay Appleby’s salary!

Also, I think the Bishops were actually promoting the rush on the border when they traveled to Central America in late 2013 and Appleby authored their report on the coming border surge.  Could they predict the surge of “children” because they helped create it?

Don’t forget to call your Representative and US Senators today to demand they oppose Obama’s Executive Amnesty!

We are up against BIG-money “religious” groups operating on your dime!

Two more immigrants sentenced in Maryland food stamp fraud cases; wanted an immigrant scams reporter!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 17, 2014

Baltimore convenience store where Yemenis ripped off US taxpayers for millions. You can’t make this up! http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/02/07/baltimore-two-citizens-of-yemen-plead-guilty-to-2-million-in-food-stamp-fraud/

For new readers, a side hobby of mine here at RRW has been to report on immigrant-run convenience stores ripping us off with food stamp fraud.  I’m not talking about the petty stuff, it is the multi-million dollar trafficking fraud I’m talking about.

(For the most part this doesn’t involve refugees except that they use a lot of food stamp dollars and they are probably among those selling their benefits.)

I’m going to tell you about this latest sentencing right here in Maryland of Abdulmalik Abdulla and Ahmed Mohssen, in a minute.  They ripped us off to the tune of $1.1 million and got only 4 years in prison (which we have to pay for too!).

Supposedly they will pay restitution, but where will they get that kind of money running a legitimate business? And, besides especially with the Middle Easterners, most of the money has long ago left the country! Why not just deport them!

But first, here is my pitch (I’ve done this on many previous occasions, but have a lot more readers now).  WILL SOMEONE PLEASE WRITE A BLOG DEVOTED TO FRAUD SCHEMES PERPETRATED BY IMMIGRANTS.   Every single day I see stories about food stamp fraud, medicare/medicaid fraud, housing fraud and other welfare fraud, so you would have lots of material to write from!

And, all day long I get e-mails from people who must spend many hours reading news on far-flung subjects, why not devote that same time to one or two things, become an investigative reporter, write a blog or other website and get something important accomplished!  We have enough news junkies to go around and besides we can all read Drudge!  What we don’t have are enough brave investigators!

And, truthfully, if someone doesn’t do it soon, I’m quitting RRW to start such a blog.

For our critics: If you are saying to yourself—Americans commit fraud too—then write your own blog on American scammers!  After all, it is a free country (at least for now).

Sorry for my rant!  But, here is the news from Baltimore directly from the US Attorney’s office.  There was no sense directing you to a half a dozen stories that amounted to 3 paragraphs each in the mainstream media.  Unfortunately though, just like the mainstream media, we don’t learn the immigration status of some of those convicted.  When you see that ICE was involved, you know something was suspicious about their status in the US.

Baltimore, Maryland – U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett sentenced Abdulmalik Abdulla, age 37, and Ahmed Mohssen, age 54, both of Baltimore, today each to four years in prison, followed by one year of supervised release, for food stamp fraud and wire fraud in connection with a scheme to illegally redeem food stamp benefits in exchange for cash. Judge Bennett also ordered Abdulla and Mohssen, who were convicted on August 8, 2014, after a four day trial, to forfeit and pay restitution of $1,185,583.09.

[....]

The evidence presented at the four day trial showed that the defendants, who operated Sam’s NY Grocery, a convenience store on North Milton Street in Baltimore, received over $1.1 million in federal payments for transactions in which they did not provide any food, but split the proceeds with food stamp recipients. According to testimony at trial, the defendants exchanged EBT benefits for cash, typically paying half the value of the EBT benefits in cash and keeping the rest for themselves. The testimony at trial also showed that the defendants accepted food stamp benefits to sell individual cigarettes removed from a pack at a substantial markup. As a result of the unlawful transactions, the defendants obtained more than $1.1 million in EBT deposits for transactions in which the store did not provide food.

Then check out the others recently convicted of food stamp fraud in Maryland.  Do you see a pattern?

In separate cases, the 10 convenience store owners or operators indicted in September 2013 in connection with schemes to illegally redeem food stamp benefits in exchange for cash have pleaded guilty to food stamp fraud and/or wire fraud. Abdullah Aljaradi, age 52, and Ahmed Ayedh Al-Jabrati, age 56, both citizens of Yemen residing in Baltimore, were each sentenced to two years in prison, and ordered to pay restitution of $1.2 million. Jung Kim, age 52, of Ellicott City, Maryland, was sentenced to 20 months in prison, and ordered to forfeit $95,453.50 and pay restitution of $205,000. Amara Cisse, age 51, of Windsor Mill, Maryland, was sentenced to 27 months in prison and ordered to pay restitution of $654,349.24, and his wife, Fanta Keita was sentenced to two months in prison. John Cunningham, age 55, of Baltimore, was sentenced to two years in prison. Retailer Hyung Cho, age 40, was sentenced to 38 months in prison, and his mother Dae Cho, age 67, was sentenced to 18 months in prison. The Chos were also ordered to forfeit $371,439.21 and pay restitution of $1.4 million. Abdo Mohamed Nagi, age 54, a citizen of Yemen residing in Baltimore, and Kim Man Chu, age 39, of Rosedale, Maryland, pleaded guilty and were sentenced to 46 months and 18 months in prison, respectively. Nagi was ordered to forfeit $1.2 million and Chu was ordered to forfeit $834,996 and six firearms along with ammunition.

Wow, looks like one American-sounding name in the whole bunch.  And, a bunch of citizens of Yemen in the group—how did they even get federal approval to run a business that involved food stamps?  Who helps them buy the stores? What sort of investor visa or other program could some of them be using to get in here?  Do they teach Scamming the Infidels 101 in the Middle East?  Does anyone in our government follow their money trail abroad?

See all of our posts on food stamp fraud (we haven’t written much in recent months), but I bet we are going on a hundred posts over the years.  Some are real doozies!

The Asylumist blog takes a whack at Wyomingites opposed to refugee program; perpetuates the big lie

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 17, 2014

I wonder what blogger and immigration lawyer Jason Dzubow thinks of the Somali scheme (surely encouraged by Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains who resettled thousands of Somalis to CO to work in meatpacking) for “refugees” to high-tail-it to Wyoming to pick up subsidized housing vouchers to take back to Colorado (our top post for two weeks now! see also here) and thus rip-off the needy people of Wyoming.

We missed this blog post by Dzubow ten days ago (I’m not a regular visitor).  But, this morning when I wanted to see what he has to say about the “unaccompanied alien children” issue, I saw this post, entitled: Wyoming, the “Equality State,” Is Anything But.

Washington, DC Immigration lawyer and blogger Jason Dzubow. http://www.lawmavens.com/html/jason_dzubow.html

Dzubow:

There is only one state in the Union without a refugee resettlement program–Wyoming. Late last year, the state’s Republican governor, Matt Mead, took some tepid steps toward establishing a public-private partnership to help resettle refugees in the Equality State. Predictably, those efforts were met by fierce resistance, both from inside and outside the state.

He credits Congolese refugee Bertine Bahige with getting the campaign going to bring refugees to Wyoming.  Truthfully Bahige doesn’t have that much power, Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains located in Colorado was already casting around for fresh territory as Colorado is in refugee overload. (Reportedly an Idaho office was looking for fresh turf as well.)

A former refugee, and now a Wyoming resident and high school math teacher, Bertine Bahige, began a campaign to change the situation and encourage Wyoming to join the rest of the country and establish a refugee resettlement program. As a result of his efforts, in September 2013, the Governor made some preliminary inquiries with HHS about establishing a resettlement program.

[....]

But once word got out that Wyoming was considering thinking about possibly creating a resettlement program, hundreds of people called the Governor’s office to express opposition to the plan. In response, a spokesman for the Governor issued a statement, “Wyoming is not setting up a refugee camp…. This is still very preliminary.”   [As I have said before, this comment about a “refugee camp” is meant to make the opponents look stupid—it is the Jonathan Gruber (voters are dumb) strategy being played out by elitists including this Republican governor.—ed]

Next, Dzubow suggests fear of fraud by the “religious charities” is of little significance.

Remember Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains wanted their efforts in Wyoming kept secret until they were further along in the process.   In my view, since Lutheran Family Services is almost completely funded with tax dollars it has forfeited the right to be called a “religious charity.”  It is a quasi-government agency and thus open to taxpayer scrutiny and accountability.  Here is Dzubow with his “religious charity” mumbo-jumbo:

Mr. Barnett is also concerned with fraud in the refugee system. Of course, fraud and costs are legitimate concerns, but so is protecting refugees, and to me, Mr. Barnett’s throw-the-refugee-baby-out-with-the-bathwater approach mischaracterizes and unfairly distorts the life-saving work of the religious charities.

Now here comes the BIG LIE!

In the final paragraph of Dzubow’s little lecture to Wyomingites, he says a state can determine how many refugees it will take!  That is a myth.  In reality, once a city or state has a refugee office opened (by one of the contractors or subcontractors of the US State Department and the Dept. of Health and Human Services), it takes an enormous and sustained effort by state and local elected officials to stop the flow—and it isn’t ever stopped completely once the office has begun bringing in the refugees.  The best they can do is get a brief slowdown.

Here is what happens:  The resettlement contractor brings in the original “seed community” (their term) and then they proceed to bring in the family members and then use a guilt-trip on those who say—it is too many! we can’t afford more!—suggesting that the complaining citizens of the city/state are mean-spirited, “unwelcoming,” greedy, racist boobs.

The federal Office of Refugee Resettlement might even call in the dogs (contractor ‘Welcoming America’) to calm the pocket of resistance.”

Here is Dzubow’s final little lecturing guilt-trip (including the big lie) to Wyoming.  Blah! blah! blah!

In some ways, though, this is all a tempest in a tea pot. I doubt Wyoming would ever accept more than a handful of refugees (although it is a large state, it has a small population), and so in practical terms it wouldn’t mean much one way or the other. However, in symbolic terms, I think it is important. The United States has committed to protect a certain number of refugees each year. This commitment reflects our values as a nation and our position as the leader of the Free World. In fulfilling our commitment, it would be nice to see all 50 states doing their share. So come on Wyoming, we’re all waiting for you to join us. I think you will be glad you did.

On Friday, Veep Biden announced expansion of refugee program for the “children”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 17, 2014

Gotcha! Joe Biden along with Ted Kennedy created the Refugee Resettlement Program in 1979 (Carter signed it into law in 1980), but you can count on one hand (sometimes two) the number of refugees resettled in Biden’s home state of Delaware.

I saw the news, as many of you did, and just didn’t get around to posting it (also figured most of our readers saw it anyway), but just to keep our historical record up-to-date, here is what Breitbart said about the latest Obama Central American invasion plan.

Why did Obama send Biden out to do the dirty work?  To continue to diminish any chance Biden has of running for the Presidency?  The rumor is that Obama doesn’t want Hillary or Joe to follow him.

Breitbart (emphasis is mine):

On Friday, Vice President Joe Biden promised that the White House would allow an expansion of the United States’ refugee program to offer refugee status to children and young adults from Central America. He made the announcement in a speech at the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington, D.C. This announcement comes on the heels of President Obama’s vow to pass additional sweeping immigration reforms by executive order before the end of the year, a move strongly opposed by Republicans in Congress.

Previous U.S. immigration policy included a program that allowed up to 4,000 people a year from Cuba and Columbia to apply for refugee status. The new policy, as described by Biden, would expand that program to people under age 21 from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras who already have a parent in the U.S. legally, to allow them to come and join their parents.

“It provides those seeking asylum a ‘right way’ to come to our country, as opposed to crossing the border illegally,” said Biden about the new policy. “The program will provide a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children make — and some children don’t ever arrive, don’t ever make.”

The program would begin in December, and according to a statement by the State Department, applications would be initiated in the U.S. by the parent who was legally here. If a second parent still remained with the child in the home country and was legally married to the parent in the U.S., the second parent could also be added to the application.

More at Breitbart, here.

One parent has to be here legally?

This business about the parent filing the application having to be already legally in the US doesn’t make sense.  That parent, if a citizen or legal permanent resident, could have already applied to bring a minor child to the US.

Are they going to DNA test the “children” and the “parent” to be sure the parent is really the parent? 

Remember the African scam that shut down family reunification for Somalis in 2008.  Tens of thousands of so-called family members were not related at all and we admitted them for decades before discovering the fraud.

And, here is something else I want to know.  If the “legal” parent is legal through merely the Temporary Protected Status program, which is how tens of thousands of Central Americans get to stay and work in the US, will those parents be permitted to bring in their children as “refugees?”  Those kids then would be on a fast track to citizenship while their parents are not (unless Obama gives the parents amnesty).

And, btw, see our fact sheet for all of the welfare goodies legitimate refugees get from you.

What a tangled mess Obama has created in our immigration system!  Or, was that the plan all along?

Pamela Geller does the Somalis go to Wyoming for housing vouchers story!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 16, 2014

….and really pulls a lot of threads together for a larger audience than we have!

This is what Geller says at Atlas Shrugs about our post that was being so widely read over the last couple of weeks (hat tip:  Richard at Blue Ridge Forum).

Let’s hope the story makes it to Fox News!

Tucker Carlson come in please!

Reportedly Carlson asked on Fox just this morning—why are we bringing refugees from countries that hate us?  If you see that clip, send it our way!

For new readers, Wyoming is the last state in the nation to have a refugee resettlement office and last year the Republican governor Matt Mead invited the feds and a Lutheran contractor in to set up shop.  The citizens of Wyoming rose up and so far newly re-elected Mead has not moved forward with the plan (unless of course it is being done in secret).  See our lengthy archive on refugees and Mead by clicking 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.

Update from Rome: Tensions high at refugee center, minors evacuated

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 14, 2014

We reported on Wednesday that local residents in one neighborhood of Rome have had it with the local refugee center claiming the asylum seekers have brought crime to their community.

See our original story here.

Reader ‘pungentpeppers’ spotted this latest news and asks why Italy is even giving refuge to mostly Muslim Egyptians and Bangladeshis. My guess is that—just as is happening in the US with the so-called Unaccompanied Alien Children—everyone who is an economic migrant (not a legitimate refugee) and wanting to get into a first world country these days is claiming they are persecuted and are demanding asylum.  They know how to use that “A” word! Someone has taught them how to use it!

Rome Mayor Ignazio Marino, …the building has been “seriously damaged.” Photo from story about Rome being broke: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/feb/28/rome-spared-bankruptcy-italy-rescue-matteo-renzi

From Deutsche Welle:

 On Thursday, workers at a refugee center on the outskirts of Rome reported renewed tensions with local residents, who have been holding violent demonstrations against the foreigners in recent days.

“We are scared. We are trying to find a compromise with the residents,” a center official, Francesco Amato, told the Associated Press news agency. The refugees currently being housed at the facility are reported to be primarily from Egypt and Bangladesh.

Amid the upswing in violence despite a heavy police presence, minors were evacuated from the site.  [The movement of UACs is going on around the world---ed]

A statement from Rome Mayor Ignazio Marino’s office indicated that the building in the eastern suburb of Tor Sapienza had been “seriously damaged,” according to Reuters news agency.

Hostilities escalated on Monday, with protesters throwing stones and bottles at the center as they shouted insults at its residents.

“Rome rejects all forms of violence, racism and xenophobia,” Marino said in the statement.

Conflicting reports have described the protesters in Tor Sapienza, on the one hand, as disgruntled Italian natives whose ire is directed at the government’s insufficient support for the refugees and, on the other, as far-right xenophobes.

For new readers, check our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series for background on how Italy got into this mess in the first place by sending its Navy out to rescue boats filled with illegal aliens coming from North Africa.

Then this about a country in economic turmoil as it is, from DW:

According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Italy will be home to nearly 80,000 refugees and close to 14,000 asylum seekers by January.

For US readers, we are bringing you news from Europe (going over the edge!) so that you know what might be ahead for us as migrant numbers reach a certain critical tipping point.  Will Obama bring us there quickly with his threatened amnesty for millions?

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.

Groundbreaking case in Europe: Countries can stop welfare shoppers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 13, 2014

Here is more ‘invasion of Europe’ news that gives me an idea for a change in US law.

Maybe there is a way to amend some American laws to give states the right to restrict welfare handouts so that we don’t see cases like the recent one in Cheyenne, WY where Somalis arrived, not to work, but to scoop up subsidized housing vouchers to take back to Colorado.

Is a little bit of sovereignty being returned to European countries?

From The Telegraph (EU court rules benefit tourists can be excluded from welfare schemes):

The European Court of Justice declares EU member states must have ‘the possibility of refusing’ social benefits to ‘economically inactive’ EU citizens.

Britain can ban European Union migrants from claiming “special non-contributory cash benefits” for up to five years, according to a landmark judgement in Luxembourg.

The EU courts have ruled that it is up to the Government, not Brussels, how it drafts legislation that that excludes foreign, European nationals from claiming social assistance benefits.

As well as asserting national sovereignty over out-of-work welfare benefits, the European Court of Justice has stopped unemployed migrants from using human rights legislation to appeal against measures blocking them from benefits.

[....]

The German case involved two Romanian nationals, Elisabeta Dano and her son Florin, who were refused benefits in Leipzig because she “did not enter Germany in order to seek work there”.

She and her son have been residing in Germany since November 2010.

“One of the conditions for a right of residence is that economically inactive persons must have sufficient resources of their own,” said the EU court. “The directive thus seeks to prevent economically inactive EU citizens from using the host member state’s welfare system to fund their means of subsistence.”

Photo: There is another story at DPA International quoting Scheuer on the decision:

“Those who only come to Germany wanting to lay in the social hammock can be denied social benefits.”

But don’t forget, it is Germany that has invited tens of thousands of Syrians to live there, and the city of Cologne recently purchased that 4-star hotel for migrants.  So, me thinks, there is a little schizophrenia going on here with the potential for a huge clash coming in Germany at some point.  Either that, or it is perfectly acceptable to Scheuer and other leaders to allow “refugees” and “asylum seekers” to lay around in hammocks, but not citizens of other European countries.

For our ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive go here.

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.
