Refugee Resettlement Watch

Away message….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 27, 2015

I’ll be out of the fray until Monday.

While I am gone please visit our newly revamped facebook page for some new or recycled information that you may not know.

The page is here where Kelly is doing a fantastic job of getting some important posts out there.  We reached over 150,000 facebook readers this past week!

 

Syria!

As I leave, if you didn’t see it, please have a look at our post on Syria from earlier in the week.  One of the most important things we can do right now is to support Obama’s FBI which testified before Congress in February that we cannot properly screen Muslim Syrians for entry into the US as refugees.

Nevertheless, the resettlement industry has begun a push to persuade Obama (probably won’t take much persuasion) to raise the ceiling for fiscal year 2015 from 70,000 total refugees to 100,000 so as to bring in large numbers of Syrians!

Please visit the post and see what you can do!

Because we won’t do a weekly round-up this week (where we usually post this information), below is for the many new readers arriving here (thanks to facebook visitors!) who would like to learn how to navigate RRW.

For new readers!

Since we get new readers every day, here is my usual spiel with two points I need to continue to make:

First, we do screen our comments and don’t post any that threaten any kind of violence and we don’t post ones filled with foul language.  An occasional expletive might slip in if the comment is otherwise a good one.  You are always free to disagree with our point of view if you follow those two simple rules.

And the other thing I want to mention is about e-mails that come to you every time we post.  They come directly from wordpress to subscribers.  We don’t send out e-mails.  So, if we are posting too much for your e-mail inbox, then just unsubscribe and visit RRW when you have the time I understand completely about too many e-mails!  You might want to simply follow us on twitter or on facebook (below).

This is where you can find information (in addition to our fact sheet). We have over 6,000 posts.

*  See our categories (left hand sidebar)

*  See the tag clouds (right hand sidebar)

*  Also, we have a great search function and since neither the categories nor the tags go all the way back to our first posts more than seven years ago, use the search window with a few key words.  You might want to first try your city, state, or country to see what we have reported from there over the years.

Readers from Europe should search for key words ‘Invasion of Europe’ for all of our many posts on the migration crisis on the Continent.

By the way, our category entitled ‘where to find information’ is filled with reports and documents, but with 330 posts archived there, it is pretty unwieldy now.

Past weekly roundups can be found in our category entitled ‘blogging.’

If you wish to be notified when we post, consider subscribing or follow us on twitter (@refugeewatcher) or facebook (RefugeeInfoResource).  ‘Like us’ on facebook!

And apologies to all who e-mail and comment, sorry if I don’t respond much, there are just not enough hours in my day!

Because we screen comments, yours won’t appear until we are back in business on Monday.

Grover Norquist does real damage to himself in Glenn Beck interview, five years after chalk board incident

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 26, 2015

I hope you caught Glenn Beck’s Blaze TV tonight and Beck’s interview with Mr. Open Borders himself Grover Norquist (hat tip: Kelly).  We have a large archive on Norquist the Washington Republican political guru and friend of Karl Rove who many believe (and Beck confirms) has a wide variety of questionable Muslim Brotherhood-connected friends.

Go here to Blaze TV and look for a replay.  For a sharp Washington-insider Harvard grad, Norquist looked pretty wobbly.  And, Beck had clearly done his homework.

Our interest in Norquist began in 2007 when he was pushing his ‘conservative’ pals (at his famous Wednesday meeting) to support an expanded Iraqi refugee resettlement program.

More recently he lined up a stellar list of Open Borders Republicans to push for more refugees to America generally (presumably looking for cheap labor for his industry clients).  See our report here.  His list of fellow refugee pushers included Jeb Bush.  We only ever saw the ‘big’ news at Human Rights First!

In 2010 Grover disses Glenn Beck’s chalk board gift!

For a laugh…..

I wonder does Glenn Beck know that when he gave his famous chalk board to Grover (Americans for Tax Reform) after Beck’s CPAC speech in 2010 that Grover put it in a closet in his office and obviously made sure a reporter knew about that!

This is from Potomac Tea Party Report dated March 26, 2010 (exactly 5 years ago today!) and it’s a good thing I captured the text of the story from the Washington Examiner, because the linked article is now gone.

Here is a very telling little bit of information from the Washington Examiner yesterday.  Seems that when Glenn Beck gave the keynote speech at CPAC  this past February he gifted his chalk board to Americans for Tax Reform.  But, after making a show of its arrival at ATR’s famous Wednesday meeting, ATR President Grover Norquist has since banished it to a closet.

The Washington Examiner (story no longer available):

Put it in the same category as those cat sweaters your grandmother would get you every Christmas.

Fox News pundit Glenn Beck gifted his infamous chalkboard to the Americans for Tax Reform at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference for use during its Wednesday meetings.

It’s the thought that counts, right?

“Every Wednesday in Washington, all the conservatives meet to decide what they should be doing in the weeks ahead,” David Keene, chairman of the American Conservative Union, said to close Beck’s speech. “This is going to be going to the site of the Wednesday meetings to remind us what we should be doing in the weeks ahead, and it will be put to use there.”

And just as Keene said, within days a courier delivered the large chalkboard to the downtown location of Americans for Tax Reform.

But was it actually put to use?

Well, it’s sitting in an audiovisual equipment closet attached to the conference room that hosts about 200 people every week.

[….]

However, the group’s president, Grover Norquist, isn’t exactly a fan of political talk shows.

I guess he still isn’t!

Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota is responsible for the Somali chaos in St. Cloud

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 26, 2015

If you are angry (about the tension in St. Cloud) and want one entity to blame, it is Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota, the primary federal refugee resettlement agency working in St. Cloud!

That supposedly ‘Christian’ charitable organization is directly responsible for the high Somali numbers in St. Cloud, and they are jointly responsible for bringing over ten thousand Somalis from around the world to colonize Minnesota towns in the last ten years alone—Catholic Charities and World Relief MN (now Arrive Ministries)*** helped also.  Of course they have brought many more than 10,000 in over two decades and not just Somali Muslims!

Rumor has it that 1,500 new Somalis are going to be resettled by the Lutherans in St. Cloud this year.  (This is part of former Rep. Michele Bachmann’s district!)

Doing well by doing good? Jodi Harpstead is making over $300,000 a year to seed St. Cloud and other Minnesota towns with Somali Muslims.

These three ‘Christian’ phony non-profits (phony Christians!) could stop the US State Department’s further seeding of the state if they just said NO!  We won’t resettle any more Muslim ‘refugees.’   But they don’t!  Why?

Why? Because it is big business (as we learned from Lutherans in New England)!  They dare not challenge their sugar daddy—the federal government!  And, they must be afraid of the growing power of the Islamists and the Islamist front group—Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)—which they are responsible for unleashing on the city of St. Cloud.

So how much money does it take to buy the Lutherans?

Back in 2013 we told you that then Minnesota Lutheran CEO, Mark Peterson, was pulling down a salary of $441,767.

We went to a recent audit linked on their website and here are some numbers we found (audit ending September 30, 2014):

They had total revenue of $103,135,439 and received $91,887,312 from GOVERNMENT FEES AND GRANTS.  (Go here and click on ‘financials’ to see for yourself).

That makes them 89% government funded!  That is a government agency not a charity, and surely not a ‘Christian’ charity!

The progressive ‘religious Left’ is living off of the US taxpayer!

Doing well by doing good?

Salaries and payroll accounted for $57,929,172 of your money—your tax dollars for that one year!

Jodi doesn’t pull down a salary as high as Peterson (LOL! War on women?) her predecessor did, but it is fairly substantial none-the-less as we learned from a recent Form 990.  She was compensated with $280,812 and an additional $42,495 came from related organizations (whatever that is!).

Her second in command, Kenneth Borle, made $202,087 and $33,192 (from related organizations).

They have 8 other employees making over six-figure salaries!

Go here for the others in leadership at Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota responsible for building the aggressive and demanding Muslim population of the state.

And if you are looking for more people to blame for what is happening to Minnesota, here is the Board of Directors (do you know any of them?):

Board of Directors

Greg Vandal, Chair
Nancy Rystrom, Vice Chair
Cathy Norelius, Secretary
Sue Haffield, Treasurer  *
Bishop Thomas Aitken
Dan Anderson
Mike Anderson
Rev. Dr. Eric Barreto
Ann Beatty
Dr. Paul Dovre
Jon Evert
Nicole Griensewic Mickelson
Rev. John Hogenson
Rev. Dr. Rolf Jacobson
Jen Julsrud
John Mattes
Artie Miller
Joanne Negstad
Joan Wandke Nelson
Rev. Mark Skinner
Bishop Ann Svennungsen
Rev. Mari Thorkelson
Lori Wall

The main office of Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota is here (below).  It is time to let them know how you feel, to put the pressure on the organization directly responsible for disrupting St. Cloud. 

Good Lutherans especially need to speak up!

Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota
2485 Como Avenue
St. Paul, MN 55108
651.642.5990
800.582.5260

And, according to the US State Department’s handy list of contractors the St. Cloud Lutheran resettlement agency office is here:

LIRS
MN-LIRS-08: Lutheran Social Services Of Minnesota
Address:
22 Wilson Avenue Suite 110
St. Cloud, MN 56302
Phone:
320-251-7700

One more thing!  Tell Rep. Trey Gowdy what he has in store for his community if a refugee resettlement site is established in Spartanburg, SC.

See our complete archive on St. Cloud here.  And, click here, for an enormous archive on Minnesota.  See especially our earliest post (2011), and one of our top posts of all time, when we first learned of the three ‘Christian’ groups swamping Minnesota with Somalis at the behest of the US State Department.

*** An indicator that the heat is on some of these phony Christian organizations is that they are changing their names.  Note that World Relief Minnesota is now Arrive Ministries and Lutheran Social Services of New England is now Ascentria Care Alliance (here).

Alert! Refugee resettlement industry/media pushing Obama to raise the ceiling for this year’s refugees to accommodate Syrians

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 25, 2015

We have mentioned this previously, but the pieces began to come together over the last few days when first, David Miliband (head honcho of refugee contractor the International Rescue Committee), penned his Washington Post op-ed on the subject, and then I happened to catch Fareed Zakaria’s guilt-tripping report on the Syrian refugees here at ‘Fareed Zakaria—GPS.‘   Zakaria said the US isn’t doing enough!

All of the players in the refugee industry were counting on a large number of Syrians to enter the US in FY2015 until…..

The FBI sends resettlement industry into a tailspin with Hill testimony!

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria told viewers that the US isn’t doing enough for Syrian refugees and we need to bring more to the US for your already overloaded towns and cities.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (which picks our refugees and has 10,000 mostly Muslim Syrians queued-up for America right now), the US State Department (which was promising we would take 9,000-10,000 this year!), and the federal contractors *** (looking for more paying “clients” aka refugees) basically got kicked in the teeth a few weeks ago when the other partner in the resettlement process—the Department of Homeland Security (FBI) told the House Homeland Security Committee that they can’t properly screen for terrorist connections in the Syrian refugee population because there is no way to gather information on them.

So the flow to America is going to be slow and the numbers no where near the 10,000 and up this year that the contractors were pushing for!

(ISIS has said it will use the refugee stream to get into Europe, so why not the US as well!)

The sob-story lobbying campaign to go around the FBI has begun!

There is a track record of the contractors, open borders advocacy groups, and the media teaming up to circumvent procedures in Washington to get what they want—more refugees than your cities can manage.  (If anyone needs evidence, let me know, we have it all archived here).

Make no mistake, the majority of Syrian refugees the UN has chosen for America are Sunni Muslims!

When Zakaria looked into the camera this past weekend with sad eyes and made his plea for America to take in more Syrians he didn’t tell Americans that the FBI had already said that the numbers would be small for NATIONAL SECURITY REASONS.

I can’t impress on readers enough, you must speak out and tell Washington—tell your elected representatives—that we should not be resettling any more Syrian Muslims! 

If Obama is going to make a move to raise the ceiling, from a total of 70,000 refugees this year to perhaps 100,000 as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society is demanding to accommodate Syrians, it will be soon!

One thing you might do, if you are concerned about the Christians, the Yazidis, and other religious minorities is to tell your representatives that we will only take the persecuted minorities (Canada has already said that those will be their priority) and watch the UN rage!  Real Christians will offer to help sponsor them and not expect the US taxpayer to shoulder the entire burden.

***Six of the federal resettlement contractors masquerade as ‘religious’ charities but their refugee work is largely funded from the federal treasury:

No surprise! CAIR arrives in wake of St. Cloud Somali school protest

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 24, 2015

This is an update of our post from Sunday where we reported that Somali students claim they are being bullied because they are Somali Muslims.

One more reason your town should resist if a new refugee resettlement site is being planned! 

You are watching the Hijra, the agitation phase of the Islamic migration, in real time!  Learn from it!

CAIR Minnesota Director Jaylani Hussein. CAIR had settled a lawsuit with this same school district in 2011. http://www.cairmn.com/about-us/cair-mn-staff.html

From the Saint Cloud Times:

Members of the St. Cloud Somali community have assembled a task force of around 15 people to meet with St. Cloud school district officials and seek a “peaceful resolution” after ethnic tensions flared at Technical High School last week. Members of the task force could meet with Superintendent Willie Jett as early as Wednesday.

Abdul Kulane, a Somali community leader and former City Council candidate, said at least 200 community members gathered Saturday at St. Cloud Public Library and chose people from different segments of the Somali population who intend to talk about what they see as a pattern of bullying and discrimination at the school. The task force includes parents of Tech students, community elders and other leaders, and two Tech students.

“We wanted the full community to be represented,” Kulane said. “We want people to put their heads together and have a meaningful dialogue. It’s not going to work if it’s just the students, or just the parents.”

Members of the task force met Monday to solidify an agenda before meeting with officials.

District spokeswoman Tami DeLand said Jett is planning to meet with members of the task force this week. DeLand said Jett met with Somali community elders Saturday.

“All of these meetings are intended to be problem-solving,” DeLand said. “The superintendent’s agenda is to make sure that our mission is carried out at Tech High School and all our schools, and that all students feel welcome.”

Separately, representatives from the Council on American-Islamic Relations met Monday evening with Tech students and community leaders after being contacted by them last week, said CAIR Executive Director Jaylani Hussein.

As a civil rights organization, Hussein said it is supporting community efforts and will work with all parties to settle any cases in the short term. Most of that happens through negotiations and conversations, he said.

“Dialogue is when real solutions happen,” he said. “Especially issues like this require dialogue. Right now, we support the community’s efforts … and are working hand in hand.”

They discussed specific issues the students had been reporting to the media. Hussein said they also discussed some of the steps the district was supposed to take as part of its lawsuit settlement with CAIR in 2011.

There is more, read it all.

To be honest, I would be pulling my kids out of any of these schools with this kind of conflict!

US immigrant population reaches record level

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 24, 2015

I was looking for something else and came across this informative article at the Migration Policy Institute (MPI).  I’ve written critically, here in 2011, about MPI which advances an Open borders agenda sandwiched between articles like this one entitled: ‘Frequently Requested Statistics on Immigrants and Immigration in the United States.’  I assume their statistics are accurate. Check it out!

Building the Democratic Party voter base!

Montana: Colombian refugee charged with sexually assaulting child

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 24, 2015

Whew!  This story from the Bozeman Daily Chronicle (hat tip: Paul) gives me an opportunity to mention two things.  First Montana takes only a few refugees a year and second did you know we were taking “refugees” from Colombia?  I did, but rarely do we see anything in the news about that stream of refugees to America.

Five months into fiscal year 2015, we have resettled 273 “refugees” from the South American country of Colombia.  How this guy got to Montana as a cleaning contractor, from Arizona where he supposedly has a family, remains a mystery.  Do cleaning contractors send teams out to other states?  Is there no one in Montana willing to clean?

Here is the US Conference of Catholic Bishops’ pitch on why we need to bring Colombians to America.

From the Bozeman Daily Chronicle:

Barreiro-Guerrero with translator. Remember “welcoming” communities! You pay for the translators!

A man accused of sexually assaulting a young girl in a grocery store bathroom over the weekend was ordered held in jail Monday on $500,000 bail.

Johnny Barreiro-Guerrero, 39, has been charged with felony sexual assault, felony assault on a minor and misdemeanor indecent exposure. Gallatin County Justice Court Judge Bryan Adams set Barreiro-Guerrero’s bail.

[….]

The alleged victim, a 7-year-old girl, said that when she was in the bathroom, Barreiro-Guerrero kissed her, held her against a wall and touched her sexually. She said during the encounter, Barreiro-Guerrero also unzipped his pants and showed her his penis.

At the store, officers contacted Barreiro-Guerrero, who matched the description given by the girl. Barreiro-Guerrero only speaks Spanish, so a translator assisted a detective during an interview.

Barreiro-Guerrero, who identified himself as a Columbian refugee, said he was in the women’s bathroom cleaning when he heard the girl come in. He said he didn’t leave when the girl entered and he saw her wash her hands. [He claims not to have touched her—ed]

[….]

During Barreiro-Guerrero’s court appearance Monday, Gallatin County Deputy Attorney Jesse Bushnell requested the $500,000 bond.

Bushnell called Barreiro-Guerrero a “danger to the community” and said the “randomness” of the offense and the age of the alleged victim warranted a high bond.

Bushnell also said that Barreiro-Guerrero is a flight risk. He has no ties to Montana and had a plane ticket scheduled to leave the state Monday, Bushnell said.

Remember stories like this one when the feds promise you that refugees are very carefully screened!

Europe has not yet developed the backbone that Australia has in blocking invasion

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 24, 2015

More ‘Invasion of Europe’ news…..

This is yet one more story about the invasion of Europe and how the continent is bracing for the next onslaught of migrants from North Africa as spring advances, but near the end of the Breitbart piece the answer to the dilemma is clear to all who are willing to see it—the invaders must be blocked as Australia is demonstrating!

European Union countries are bringing the migrants ashore, while Australia sends them back to the country from which they launched (the best way to save lives at sea!). Photo: http://qz.com/350181/the-eu-stands-by-as-thousands-of-migrants-drown-in-the-mediterranean/

From Breitbart (first the same old stuff!):

It is “relatively easy” for jihadists to gain access to the European Union by coming with an influx of refugees, the head of the European Union’s counter-terrorism group has warned.

Although jihadists have to this point seemed to find no difficulty in slipping between Europe and the Islamic State by way of porous eastern borders and Turkey, the enormous volume of humans crossing the Mediterranean every week, and EU-funded efforts to help them, appears to be offering another route of ingress. Counter-terror chief Gilles de Kerchove said: “We must be vigilant. It is relatively easy to enter into the European Union when one joins an influx of refugees”, reports TheLocal.at.

Australia is proving it can be done (a nation can save itself)!

Terrorists entering a nation posing as innocent refugees and applying for asylum is a problem with which Australia has grappled, and solved. A terrorist arrested in February for conspiracy to commit murder by stabbing blonde people in the kidneys with hunting knives arrived in the country by boat using a false passport during the Labor-party era of open borders. The new policy of using the Royal Australian Navy to turn migrant boats away has sent such an effective message to would-be travellers only one boat attempted the journey in the whole of 2014.

Breitbart has been doing a really good job of reporting on the ‘Invasion of Europe.’  Our complete archive on the topic is here.

Midwestern towns trying to cope with large numbers of refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 23, 2015

I’m speechless!  After years of reading one fluffy-puffy piece after another about refugees seeing their first snow, we are beginning to see major mainstream publications (Christian Science Monitor in this case) reporting on the struggle small towns are having with the huge numbers of refugees the US State Department and its contractors*** are dispersing across America.

Pay attention Spartanburg, SC and any other town contemplating “welcoming” refugees!

The NYT might still be hiding the source of the influx by not reporting on the refugee program, but other media is not so deceptive.  By the way, I expect every person who read the NYT story yesterday, scratched their heads and wondered how so many Somalis got here!

From the Christian Science Monitor entitled, ‘For small-town America, new immigrants pose linguistic, cultural challenges:’

In 2012, Burmese children drowned near Marshalltown resettlement site. http://forefugees.com/2012/07/07/three-karenni-children-drown-iowa-river-in-marshalltown-iowa/

 

Marshalltown, Iowa — The voice was frantic – and unintelligible to the 911 dispatcher. “Ma’am, I cannot understand you,” she said. After 80 seconds, one word leapt out: “Riverview.”

On a warm July evening in 2012, while Marshalltown, Iowa, celebrated Independence Day, three refugee children from Myanmar (Burma) drowned in the Iowa River. The drownings at Riverview Park cast a grim light on the challenges facing both the city and its newest immigrants, most of whom spoke little English and had scant understanding of life in their new home – including the perils, known to more established residents, of the river’s treacherous currents. [Where was their resettlement contractor which should have been assimilating the refugees to their new home?–ed]

“Many towns are struggling to cope!”

For two decades, rural communities across the Midwest have been finding ways to absorb Latino immigrants. Now, a new generation of immigrants arriving from far-flung places such as Myanmar, Somalia, Iraq, and West Africa has brought a bewildering variety of cultures and languages. Many towns are struggling to cope.

Again, speechless, a reference to the meatpackers wanting refugee labor (see our 2008 post about Clinton bring Bosnians to Iowa for the meatpackers):

Experts say the changing face of immigration in the rural Midwest reflects stricter federal enforcement. Tighter border security has slowed the influx of immigrants from Latin America entering the United States illegally. Meanwhile, the meatpacking industry has looked to refugees, who enjoy legal status, as a way of avoiding problems with undocumented Hispanic workers.

By the way, they don’t say it here, but due to a Clinton Executive Order that Bush did not rescind, local governments (you the taxpayers!) or any agency getting any federal funding is required to supply interpreters for the myriad languages and dialects the refugees bring to your town!

Much of the difficulty surrounding the new immigration is linguistic. Language barriers complicate services from law enforcement to health care. Ms. Beach recalls a school expulsion hearing that required two interpreters – the first to translate from one dialect of Myanmar to another, the second to translate into English.

See Ten Things your town needs to know before ‘welcoming’ refugees.   See also our archive on ‘Meatpackers changing the face of small town America’ with their insatiable appetite for cheap labor.

NYT: From Minneapolis to ISIS, a refugee’s path to jihad

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 23, 2015

Well, that is not exactly the New York Times Sunday headline, but close.  What they left out of the lengthy story was the ‘R’ word—Refugee.   Most media outlets have gradually (over the seven years we have been observing the issue) begun to use the right word when it fits—not just “immigrants,” but refugees we welcomed to America.  Apparently the New York Times is not yet able to say it.

 

The extremely large number of Somalis in Minnesota are virtually all refugees or the children of refugees brought there over the last 3 decades*** by three US State Department refugee resettlement contractors:  Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services, and World Relief (re-named Arrive Ministries) which is a supposedly ‘Evangelical’ charity.

But they aren’t charities in the way new readers might think they are.  They masquerade as Christian charities, but work for the federal government.

We recently researched the databases and reported that Minnesota has received over 10,000 Somalis in ten years thanks to the federal government and its contractors.  They were dispersed to over 60 towns and cities!   This past week Somali students in St. Cloud protested claiming they are discriminated against at a local high school (just the beginning?).

So, back to the NYT which featured Abdi Nur a Minneapolis refugee who said, ‘s**** the good life, I’m going to be a jihadist.’   His saga and his family’s tale didn’t interest me.  A couple of things did.

Note the manual that ISIS uses to help recruits get to the Middle East—see the word HIJRA (it means migration to advance the Islamic state or the caliphate) and that is what they are doing to America as well. 

What happens when ISIS tells these newbies, stay right where you are, you can advance our cause much more effectively by waging jihad in Minneapolis?  Or, what happens when the feds get very good at stopping the jihadist wannabees from leaving the country and out of frustration they find a means of advancing their Islamic agenda at home?

One other thing that interested me was the graph showing how most of the ISIS recruits from America were from immigrant families.

Here’s Omar!

When Omar Jamal (I call him the Somali Jesse Jackson) gets quoted I know we have some lazy reporting happening! 

So his arrival in this NYT story interested me too:

I’ve been writing about the Somali mouthpiece since 2007.   He really showed himself in 2008 when a Somali was found dead in a hotel in Denver not far from the location of the Democratic National Convention with enough cyanide in his room to kill hundreds.  Jamal convinced authorities there was nothing to see, move along, just a dead nutty Canadian Somali.

Omar Jamal’s usual schtick is to say the family is devastated, they had no idea, they are good Americans (or good Canadians).  How could this happen?

By the way, we were able to discover years ago that Jamal entered the US illegally, was convicted of immigration fraud, but was never deported. Did the feds give him some special role?

Click here to see our archive (pages and pages) on Omar Jamal as he pops up across the country and tells the media—move along, nothing to see, Somalis love America.

 

Be sure to see Jerry Gordon’s post on the NYT story at New English Review.

***See how many Somalis came to America since the 1980’s, here.  See ‘Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis,’ here.
