Ohio: More of those charming “Uzbek refugees” in trouble with the law

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 2, 2013

Monday morning diversity is strength alert!

Over the last few years we have covered the story about Uzbek’s getting into the US as “refugees” thanks to a secretive ‘airlift’ by the US State Department and possibly the CIA (Was the CIA involved behind the scenes in Uzbekistan?) during the Bush Administration and in the wake of the Andijan Uprising in 2005.

Here is what I said in a post in 2011.  This is based on my assessment from reading many accounts of what happened, but as far as I know NO REAL INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER WITH A MAINSTREAM MEDIA NEWS OUTLET HAS EVER TRIED TO GO DEEPER.  It is time someone did, as some of the Uzbek “refugees” are turning up as criminals and terrorists (see all of our Uzbek posts, here).  This is me in 2011:

At some point I need to look more closely at the case of the Uzbek refugee airlift to the US in the wake of the Andijan uprising.  In a thumbnail, Uzbekistan’s President is a secular Muslim (if there is such a thing) and a group of fundamentalist Muslims were working on an uprising, so supposedly government soldiers, at President Islam Karimov’s direction, opened-fire on a demonstration and killed many (the 2005 Andijan massacre).  The survivors went to nearby countries to escape and thus became “refugees.”

Please remember this is a very simplified version of events.  So, they were designated refugees but wished to stay in Europe (they were initially taken to camps there and wanted to stay near their families still in Uzbekistan).  The US State Department, in its infinite wisdom, said, NO, we are taking you to American towns and cities and dropping you off whether you like it or not!  So, we actually expedited the process and flew an unknown number to your neighborhoods.

Now here is the latest “Uzbek refugee” crime story which, what a surprise, involves food stamp fraud!   Hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers.’   Note too that the men arrested in Dayton, Ohio are actually Turks (Meskhetians?) but got into the US as Uzbeks.



The men arrested in an Aug. 23 raid of their rented Allen Street home are suspected of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, illegally obtaining food stamps and a weapons charge.

Muzaffar Mirsoliyev, 28, and his 51-year-old father, Mustafo Mirsoliyev, both Turkish immigrants who were refugees from Uzbekistan in the mid-2000s, had criminal complaints against them unsealed in U. S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio in Dayton.

Mustafo Mirsoliyev appeared at a detention hearing. Muzzaffar’s hearing was delayed until Friday. Muzaffar’s Russian wife, Fanisa Shaydullina, faces a weapons charge and authorities say she has been in the country illegally for about two years.

Shaydullina, who was previously identified as Turkish, has been put on 24-hour home detention and her case has been transferred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Unsealed search warrant affidavits obtained by the Dayton Daily News show that Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Michael Bush suspects the Mirsoliyevs of a scheme to defraud the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

Wednesday, the Mirsoliyevs remained in the Montgomery County Jail on a federal detainer.

All three were arrested during the raid at 245 Allen St. during which multiple law enforcement agencies seized an AK-47 rifle and a computer.

For a chuckle, new readers might want to visit our post in August about how open borders advocate David Lubell (product of Nashville, TN) was in Ohio (Cleveland) to promote the joys of multiculturalism.

… be sure to re-visit my post of a couple of weeks ago about how David Lubell and ‘Welcoming America’ has just kicked-off its Cleveland campaign to convince residents that diversity is beautiful and they need to embrace more of it!  Entrepreneurial immigrants will save the city from economic ruin, they say.

Is Ohio becoming the immigrant-run food stamp fraud capital of America?
