Refugee Resettlement Watch

It is confirmed! Idaho Uzbek arrested on terror charges is a refugee

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 17, 2013

This is an update of my post this morning where I only surmised that Boise’s Uzbek terror suspect is a refugee.

In the case of Boston’s Tsarnaevs, they came here seeking political asylum and in Fazliddin Kurbanov’s case we actually brought him to America.  The refugee resettlement program and our asylum program are basically two sides of the same coin.  We “welcomed” both to America.   But, one thing the resettlement contractors can’t seem to grasp is that with most Muslims their Jihad imperative trumps the American ‘good life’ and it’s just a matter of time before Allah calls.

Are we seeing the beginning of a trend?  I suspect we will see other young bucks seeking fame and martyrdom having been emboldened by the Tsarnaev’s ‘success.’

Fazliddin Kurbanov, your friendly refugee next door!

AP confirms Kurbanov’s  immigration status here at USA Today:

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — He was a Russian-speaking truck driver who came to Idaho in 2009 to join hundreds of other Uzbekistan refugees for whom the state has become a sanctuary from violence in their home country.

But federal officials say in an indictment that Fazliddin Kurbanov also was teaching people to build bombs that would target public transportation.

It’s unclear whether those alleged targets were domestic or abroad — or how far Kurbanov would have gone. Prosecutors said Friday only that they believe he is no longer a threat.

[….]

Kurbanov is among about 650 Uzbeks living in Idaho. He was admitted to the U.S. as a refugee in August 2009, the same month he moved to Boise, said Jan Reeves, director of the Idaho Office for Refugees, citing immigration records. Kurbanov was here legally, federal officials said.

He didn’t just move to Boise!  A federal refugee contractor, possibly Boise’s office of the International Rescue Committee, was paid by the US State Department (paid by you!) to get him hooked up with social services, find him an apartment and get him a job.

Uzbeks began coming to Idaho’s two refugee settlement centers, in Boise and Twin Falls, in 2003, Reeves said. The centers connect refugees with services such as language classes and help finding work.

The flow of Uzbeks to the state escalated around 2005, when a violent clash between protesters and the government left hundreds dead.  [We took in the troublemakers in a special airlift! Now we are reuniting families in sanctuary cities like Boise—ed]

[….]

About 90 percent of Uzbeks in their home country are Muslim. Representatives of the Islamic Center of Boise, a meeting area for the region’s Muslim community, didn’t immediately return a phone call Friday.

Radical Uzbeks have a broader mission now!  Don’t they all!

Although the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan started in the 1990s with the stated aim of overthrowing the Uzbek regime and establishing an Islamic government, its goals have expanded to create a broader Islamic influence in Central Asia.

There is more, read it all.

    Did anyone ask the people of Boise if they wanted Uzbek refugees living there? How about Idaho? The United States?

      No, no one asks if you would like to be a “welcoming” city. The feds claim they have consultations in advance, but if they do they are meaningless. They meet with a few elected officials who don’t know what the heck this program is and who think if the feds say they have to do it, then they think they can’t say no. Once a seed community is established (like in Boise) the contractors (the IRC and Catholic Charities, others) begin applying for family members to join the original seeds.

  6. How long before America recognizes Islam is of course synonymous with terrorism! Islam is not a religion. It is a violent totalitarian ideology with elements of an religion that allow it to masquerade as an religion. It should not be treated as a religion. Islam is just a form of Arab Imperialism.

      Good question, how long? How long before it sinks in that the refugee/asylum program is a prime feeder source of Jihad-minded Islamists?
