Senator Rand Paul: ‘Immigration reform’ must include improved security measures

Paul: Refugee program deserves more scrutiny!

After reading the opening paragraphs of Paul’s op-ed in the Washington Times today, one might think Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has been reading RRW!  All of the cases he cites have been reported on these pages!

A recent Quinnipiac poll in Iowa puts Paul only 4 points behind Hillary while Rubio gets trounced by her 48% to 37%. Politico

Fazliddin Kurbanov is from Uzbekistan, a Central Asian country that borders Afghanistan. This month, Mr. Kurbanov was arrested in Boise, Idaho, charged with teaching people how to build bombs that could be used to target public transportation. He is accused of conspiring with the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, which the United States recognizes as a terrorist organization. Mr. Kurbanov was here legally, admitted as a refugee in 2009.

Last year, in Aurora, Colo., Jamshid Muhtorov was arrested and charged with providing material support to the Islamic Jihad Union, which the United States recognizes as a terrorist organization. Like Mr. Kurbanov, Mr. Muhtorov is from Uzbekistan and was also here legally as a refugee.

In 2011, in my hometown of Bowling Green, Ky., Waad Ramadan Alwan and Mohanad Shareef Hammadi were arrested and accused of supporting efforts to kill American troops in Iraq. Both men are from Iraq. Both were also here legally as refugees.

The Bowling Green Daily News reported that these Iraqi refugees “slipped through the vetting process that allowed both of them political asylum in the United States.” Apparently, Mr. Kurbanov and Mr. Muhtorov “slipped through” as well.

Read on.  Then this:

I condemn government inefficiency and incompetence often. The targets for criticism are endless. In the repeating patterns from these refugee and visa cases, however, we see potentially dangerous scenarios in which we cannot afford any excuses.

[….]

These questions are crucial as Congress continues to debate immigration reform, in which vital national security concerns must be addressed. Our visa and refugee programs deserve far more monitoring and scrutiny, and there is something desperately wrong with a “vetting process” that makes so many repeated mistakes.

Instead of fixing the problems, the so-called ‘comprehensive immigration reform bill’ (S.744) weakens security measures already in place but doing poorly!   Most efforts to strengthen security failed in the Senate Judiciary Committee mark-up largely due to heavy lobbying by refugee resettlement contractors who object to anything that slows the flow of refugees into the US (and slows the flow of taxpayer dollars into their coffers!).

Paul concludes by laying down a marker for Harry Reid.  The question then becomes is this a recommendation by Paul or a demand; and will he follow through by holding up the Gang of Eight plus Grover bill *when it reaches the Senate floor?

“I respectfully request that the Senate consider the following two conditions as part of the comprehensive immigration-reform debate: One, the Senate needs a thorough examination of the facts in Massachusetts to see if legislation is necessary to prevent a similar situation in the future. Two, national security protections must be rolled into comprehensive immigration reform to make sure the federal government does everything it can to prevent immigrants with malicious intent from using our immigration system to gain entry into the United States in order to commit future acts of terror.”

The Politico Iowa poll story is here.

*Senator Paul, if you are reading this, please stay away from Grover Norquist!

Tennessee: US Attorney and FBI want to silence your speech

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 31, 2013

Make no mistake, intimidating you so that you won’t speak negatively about Islam is what is at the root of a public meeting to be held in Tullahoma, TN this coming Tuesday.

Bill Killian: “Timothy McVeigh was a Christian.”

The one thing that could save us from suffering the same fate as the UK and Swedenwith their demographic death spiral due to Muslim immigration, is our Constitutionally guaranteed  free speech.  The Obama FBI and the Justice Department would like to shut you up!

Here is the story from the Tullahoma News.    Also, see Creeping Shariah which has more, here.  *Update* Daniel Greenfield is on the case too, here at Frontpage magazine.

A special meeting has been scheduled for the stated purpose of increasing awareness and understanding that American Muslims are not the terrorists some have made them out to be in social media and other circles.

“Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society” will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4, at the Manchester-Coffee County Conference Center, 147 Hospitality Blvd.

Special speakers for the event will be Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and Kenneth Moore, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Knoxville Division.

Sponsor of the event is the American Muslim Advisory Council of Tennessee — a 15-member board formed two years ago when the General Assembly was considering passing legislation that would restrict those who worship Sharia Law, which is followed by Muslims.

Killian and Moore will provide input on how civil rights can be violated by those who post inflammatory documents targeted at Muslims on social media.

“This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian told The News Monday. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”

Killian said the presentation will also focus on Muslim culture and how, that although terrorist acts have been committed by some in the faith, they are no different from those in other religions.

That ridiculous moral equivalence argument!

And, then they have the nerve to say that Timothy McVeigh was a Christian terrorist!  McVeigh never invoked any “faith” as a reason for his attack and there still remain questions about whether he in fact had Muslim helpers (Iraqi?) that were not thoroughly investigated because it is believed that wouldn’t have fit the official FBI case against McVeigh.

Killian and Moore are propaganda enablers!

In Tullahoma, they are also going to show that damn propaganda film, ‘Welcome to Shelbyville,’ the creation of which we documented from the very beginning.  It came out of a Far Left group of ‘community organizers’ and then was legitimized by the US State Department.   Here is one more of dozens of posts in which we’ve talked about that film.

Shelbyville, TN was overloaded with Somali refugees lured there by Tyson Foods (my theory is that the US State Department serves as the employment service for the big meatpackers).  Their arrival caused some serious community discord.  Type ‘Shelbyville’ into our search function to learn more.

Zak Mohyuddin, a Muslim Advisory Council member, said a shortened version of a documentary called “Welcome to Shelbyville” will also be featured.

The documentary, produced by the Public Broadcasting Service [No it wasn’t!!! It was privately produced–ed], spotlights recent demographic changes in nearby Shelbyville, with a focus on the growing number of immigrants from Latin America and Somalia with many Somalis from the Bantu minority ethnic group which practices Islam.

So, why are they trying to scare Tennesseans into silence on Islam?  Because Tennessee has one of the most active group of citizens in the country questioning the wisdom of resettling Muslim immigrants from terror-producing countries into their towns and cities (being done largely by Catholic Charities no less!).

Someone should stand outside this meeting with a sign that simply says—we still have free speech in America!  Thank God!

Joggers roughed-up by Somali gang on Minnesota trail

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 31, 2013

The Fridley Trail, in a quiet suburb of the Twin Cities, is an unlikely place to run across a Somali gang so say officials hoping to downplay the incident.

Perhaps a case of ‘sudden jihad syndrome?’

A Balaclava—the latest Muslim fashion trend, demonstrated by a non-threatening white guy.

Here is the story from CBS Minnesota (hat tip: Ed):

FRIDLEY, Minn. (WCCO) – In broad daylight, and within full view of a busy stretch of East River Road, a group of seven young men struck two joggers totally at random.

The joggers were out for a Sunday run near East River Road and 37th Avenue North when each one was suddenly and viciously punched by the group.

Lt. Mike Monsrud, of Fridley Police, says attacks like these are rare.

The victims said their attackers demanded no money and said few words before striking. [What words? Inquiring minds want to know!—ed]  The attacks, according to Monsrud, appear to be unprovoked.

One of those attacked was Hispanic (they are infidels too!)

The jogging trail follows along the Mississippi River and connects to the nearby Anoka County Riverfront Park. That’s where Carlos Rodriguez comes to get in some exercise and play with his kids.

But to Rodriguez, the safety of the park and its trails is now in question.

Identified as Somalis, one wore a balaclava:

Police say this is the first incident of this nature that’s been reported along the jogging path. Authorities said the suspects are described as a group of six to seven Somali men that were traveling together — one wearing a hooded sweatshirt and another who was wearing a balaclava around his neck.

This reminds me of the 2009 story we had from Minneapolis where Somali “youths” were randomly attacking bikers and kids, here.  Maybe those marauding youths have grown up and spread out to the suburbs?

For new readers:  We have resettled more than 100,000 Somali refugees to cities large and small in the US over the last 25 years.  See one of the most widely read posts here at RRW.  Large numbers went to Minneapolis, and now they are spreading out throughout the state.  In three years since 9/11 ( Bush years 2004, 2005, 2006) the number of Somalis arriving topped 10,000 per year.

Those refugees then began bringing in the family (chain migration!) until 2008 when shock of shocks! the State Department discovered that as many as 30,000 Somalis had lied about their kinship and weren’t related at all.  The State Department then closed the “family reunification” program for Somalis.  It has recently been re-opened for new and legit family members, but they have no intention of finding and deporting the liars.

Fiscal year 2013 is shaping up to approach those three Bush years in the number of Somalis arriving in the US through refugee resettlement.
