How many more Munyenyezis are there?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 9, 2010

This is not the first case* we have written about involving “refugees” who are on trial for their involvement in the Rwanadan genocide, this just happens to be the worst case we’ve heard.   We wrote about Beatrice Munyenyezis case previously in June, here.  So much for those security checks we are told the US does on in-coming refugees.  Hat tip: several readers!

From AP:

CONCORD, N.H. — Beatrice Munyenyezi brought her three daughters to the United States from war-ravaged Rwanda in 1998 and focused on the American Dream: private schooling for her girls, a home with a swimming pool, a sport utility vehicle.

Before long, she had a $13-an-hour job at Manchester’s Housing Authority in New Hampshire, her children were enrolled in Catholic school, and she was on her way to financing a comfortable American lifestyle through mortgages, loans and credit cards.

Now the 40-year-old mother sits behind bars, held without bond while she awaits trial on federal citizenship fraud charges for allegedly lying about involvement in the 1994 Rwandan genocide, when at least 500,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed.

Authorities say she was an extremist Hutu who killed and enabled the rapes of untold Tutsi victims — not the innocent refugee she claimed to be in 1995 to gain U.S. entry, when she applied for a visa and for citizenship.

Munyenyezi (moon-yehn-YEH’-zee) has pleaded not guilty to two counts of lying to obtain U.S. citizenship on her refugee and naturalization applications, by denying any role in the Rwanda genocide. She is scheduled for trial in May 2011.

Her dream life apparently ended, it started falling apart years earlier. She filed for bankruptcy in May 2008, walking away from hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt: a $222,000 mortgage, $14,125 in student loans, $4,198 in municipal taxes and fees and $30,000 in credit card and other unsecured debt.


Cathy Chesley, director of immigration and refugee services for Catholic Charities of Manchester, said the agency provided Munyenyezi a standard refugee allotment when she became their client in 1999.

Read the rest of this incredibly shocking story.  Believe it or not, it gets worse.

*Here is a story about another so-called refugee allegedly involved in the genocide (as a perpetrator, not a victim!).

Southern Poverty Law Center: a bunch of highly paid white people

Posted by Judy K. Warner on August 9, 2010

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is one of the most slimy radical organizations around — a fundraising machine that has to promote the illusion of a powerful Ku Klux Klan, widespread racism and other hatred throughout America in order to keep the money coming in from little old ladies.

Ann has posted on the SPLC frequently —  here’s a list of her posts.

Now a blog called Watching the Watchdogs has put up a post, SPLC–Dreaming of a White Christmas, which is getting some attention around the blogosphere. It is

A look at the top officers at the Southern Poverty Law Center as named on pages 11 and 40 of the group’s most recent IRS Form 990, and their annual compensation for 2008.

As they point out, all of these people are white. And well paid. The CEO, Richard Cohen, makes $351,648. Yes, there are heads of non-profits who make more — large non-profits that are highly active and accomplish a lot. That’s not how you’d describe SPLC, as you’ll see if you click on some of the links to other posts at the blog.  And Cohen’s is only the first of a long roll of six-figure salaries.  (Intelligence Director Mark Potok, frequently featured here at RRW, makes $143,206.) You’ve got to love Watching the Watchdogs’ comments on their findings:

It’s also curious that the world’s leading civil rights organization can’t seem to find a single minority whom they consider to be worthy of a top management position.

Funny that an organization that spends tens of thousands of donor dollars promoting “Mix It Up” Day in America’s school cafeterias seems to believe that “diversity” ends at the Boardroom door.

Some things just never seem to change much in Montgomery.

Happy New Year, SPLC, no doubt all your Christmases will continue to be white.
