Note to readers: On this 9/11 we are in Washington

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 11, 2014

 

On the anniversary of the terrible assault on our country by Islamic terrorists, I’m in Washington DC, but will try to post a few items in between briefings and meetings.   Most of the friends I am with today are here because of that first 9/11.

Please take a few minutes this morning to see this powerful presentation that Pamela Geller published a few years ago in remembrance of that awful day.  Weep and never forget.

CASA de Maryland witnesses violence and murder involving their people

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 8, 2014

There goes the neighborhood.

CASA de Maryland’s headquarters. Be sure to read all about the Illegal’s ACORN: http://www.aim.org/special-report/casa-de-maryland-the-illegal-immigrants-acorn/

 

Update:  A reader reports that according to court documents, Vargas-Salguero has a criminal record and is identified as: WHITE, CAUCASIAN, ASIATIC INDIAN, ARAB (whatever that is!).  No mention of immigration status.

The Washington Post reports that a Guatemalan regular at CASA de Maryland (the very rich and powerful government-funded advocacy and support group for illegal aliens in Maryland) was murdered on the steps of CASA’s luxurious mansion by another man who also appears to be of Hispanic (illegal?) origin. (There is no mention of the arrested man’s nationality or legal status.)  See update above.

Although they are mostly advocates for illegals we have have written about CASA at RRW on several previous occasions (there are some of those posts in this archive).

From the Washington Post:

Miguel Angel Barillas worked as a landscaper for two years after coming to the United States from Guatemala to make a better life for his family back home, including a wife, two children and a mother with cancer.

Despite the tiring labor, he regularly ended his days at the headquarters of Casa de Maryland, where the free WiFi allowed him to sit on the steps and use his cellphone to Skype with his family.

Prince George’s County Police said they found Barillas’s unconscious body early Wednesday on the steps of Casa de Maryland in Langley Park. The 32-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. The motive: cellphone theft.

Police said Saturday that they have arrested Mynor Vargas-Salguero, 25, of the 7900 block of Riggs Road in Langley Park and charged him with first-degree murder and armed robbery. They said that Vargas-Salguero allegedly stabbed Barillas and then took his cellphone.

Vargas-Salguero is in custody.

[....]

A spokesman for Casa de Maryland, the state’s largest community organization serving Latino families, said the incident has rocked the staff and families who rely on the organization for help. The group held a candlelight vigil Wednesday to remember Barillas and call for an end to violence.

“I would see him every day,” said Robert Asprilla, a lead organizer for Casa de Maryland who spent a lot of time with Barillas. “He worked until 6 p.m., and then he would get off, eat his meal and then come to Casa headquarters, where he sat outside to call his family. . . . He was killed right where he was every day.”

CASA calls for an end to violence and more community (taxpayer-funded?) cameras and policing:

Barillas lived in a large apartment complex near the Casa de Maryland headquarters. Although there are cameras on the building, security is inadequate, Asprilla said. “The community is asking for more cameras on every building. We have cameras at Casa, but we need more. We also need more community policing.”

By the way, CASA de Maryland was born out of the ‘sanctuary movement‘ that saw churches illegally moving Central Americans into America in the early 1980’s.

Would someone let me know if you see an update with more details about the immigration status of the alleged killer.

Montgomery Co. MD will host about 50 new unaccompanied alien teens this year (so far)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 23, 2014

If you want to know where the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ have gone, check with two local agencies—the local department of education and the health department.

There is nothing especially new or surprising in this report from the Gazette unless you live in long-time ‘welcoming’ Montgomery County, Maryland (I once did), but it does say one new and interesting thing to me—the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement sent over 100 of the ‘children’ (really teenagers!) there in the previous school year.   I wonder how many taxpaying residents knew that?

School begins in Montgomery County on Monday.

Montgomery County executive Isiah Leggett (right) making guacamole with one of the most dangerous men in America, Obama Labor Secretary Thomas Perez. Leggett says it’s our moral duty to care for the alien children (and expand the voter base for my friend Tom!) http://www.gazette.net/article/20140730/NEWS/140739818/0/leggett-x2018-we-need-to-do-what-is-right-x2019&template=gazette

 From the Gazette:

Nearly 50 unaccompanied minors from Central America have been sent to Montgomery County Public Schools since July to attend classes this school year, Superintendent Joshua P. Starr said Thursday.

The 47 children from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras were directed to the county school system through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement, Starr said at the county school board’s Thursday meeting.

“We don’t know if the number’s going to go up,” he said.

Last school year, the refugee resettlement office sent 107 unaccompanied children to the school system. Most of the minors were high school students, Starr said.

Starr said system officials are aware that minors from Central America are also entering county schools through avenues other than the refugee resettlement office, such as through their families. He said school officials discussed the issue during the summer.

The issue goes beyond the school system for the county. Montgomery County Council members met with representatives from public agencies and nonprofits in late July to learn about the situation in Montgomery regarding the immigrant children in its communities.

Assessing their emotional needs!

The system is determining the students’ educational and social-emotional needs and working to address the situation with others, such as the county and nonprofits, he said.

All citizens of Montgomery County are not as eager as Leggett and Starr to welcome the mostly Central American teens:

School board Vice President Patricia O’Neill said at the meeting that, in her experiences talking with county residents, “a lot of people have been very concerned” about the unaccompanied children in county schools.

All of our coverage of the ‘unaccompanied minors’ surging across our southern border is here.

Update!  Just so you know!  Reader Julia sent us several links about TB in Montgomery Co. Maryland schools, the highest in the state due to the large immigrant population, here.

 

About the photo:  Blogging partner Judy has recently written two posts at Potomac Tea Party Report on Thomas Perez.  In my view he is next in line behind the man himself (Obama), and then Attorney General Eric Holder as one of the three most dangerous race-baiters in America.

See ‘Perez stirring up racial strife here and the follow-up post here from earlier this past week.

PTPR has an extensive archive on Perez, check it out by clicking here.

Last I heard Perez still lives in Montgomery County in that far-left mecca of Takoma Park.  Watch for it!  When the Obama Administration ends, Perez will be back and be a major political force in Maryland (if not nationally).  Is making guacamole with Leggett earlier this month a first step in his return?

Time to get out?

Get ready for it! Hollywood making a refugee resettlement movie

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2014

It will be a heartwarming story about a white girl (Reese Witherspoon) helping Sudanese refugee ‘Lost Boys’ making it in America.

The plucky white girl—-Reese Witherspoon

You gotta laugh sometimes!

Here one commenter (of several) sums it up this way!  (Hat tip: whuptdue)

J: White people helping po’ black people! Ain’t those white people got great big hearts?!

Thanks Hollywood.

Watch for the refugee contractors using the film for star-studded galas (fundraisers!).  “The Good Lie” will be out in theaters on October 3rd.

‘The Lie’ will surely get an Oscar nomination because turning it down would make Hollywood look racist!

See the trailer by clicking here.

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 6, 2012

I wanted to give you the link, but can you believe it—it’s dead.  Anyway, here is the e-mail Press Announcement.  Don’t rush down there though because bloggers aren’t legitimate media and it sure doesn’t look like it’s open to the general public.  Guess who is giving the opening remarks—-Maryland US Senator Ben Cardin!

The Office of the Special Representative to Muslim Communities together with the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor and the Office of Civil Rights, will host the first ever strategy session on Diversity, Inclusion and U.S. Foreign Policy. The U.S. Department of State will convene 100 top diversity leaders from the public and private sectors to focus on the impact of diverse professional environments and the way in which the diversity and inclusion agenda informs U.S. foreign policy.

The program opens promptly at 8:30 a.m. on June 7 in the Marshall Center with opening remarks from Senator Ben Cardin (D/MD), Special Representative to Muslim Communities, Farah Pandith, and Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield, Director General of the Foreign Service and Director of Human Resources at the Department of State. Presentations and working groups continue throughout the day until 4:30 p.m. Dr. Ernest Wilson III, Dean of the Annenberg School of Public Diplomacy, will offer the keynote address at 8:45 a.m. on “Why Diversity is ‘Mission Critical’ for the U.S.” Under Secretary for Economic, Energy and Agricultural Affairs Robert D. Hormats will address the session at 2:35 p.m.

[Be sure to check out the big businesses concerned with "diversity" and labor---ed]

Participants will include U.S. government leaders from the White House, Congress, USAID, the Department of State, Peace Corps, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Navy, and Chief Diversity Officers from leading U.S. corporations, educational institutions, and nonprofit and other organizations, including Merck, Citigroup, Wal-Mart, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, McDonald’s, Abercrombie & Fitch, GlaxoSmithKline, American Red Cross, United Way Worldwide, Harvard University, Cornell University, and many others. The International Society of Diversity and Inclusion Professionals and the Society for Human Resource Management are partners in this event.

The event is open to credentialed members of the media. Pre set for Cameras: 7:15 a.m. from the 21st Street entrance lobby.

Final access for writers and still photographers: 8:00 a.m. from the 21st Street entrance lobby.
