Tensions grow in Saint Cloud, MN as more Somalis move in with help of Lutherans
Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2015
Update March 31st: Leftwing community organizer and race baiter at work in St. Cloud, here. His goal is to shut down any criticism of the Somali ‘community.’
Update March 30th: I think the St. Cloud Times is helping with the propaganda campaign with this report on why Somalis make wonderful employees (not!).
Update March 26th: More on who is to blame—Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota—go here to see what you can do!
Update March 24th: Now the agitation begins in earnest as CAIR arrives on the scene, here.
A few years ago Saint Cloud, MN was targeted as a new Somali resettlement site by the US State Department and its contractor there— Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota.
Originally the Somalis there were what the refugee industry calls “secondary migrants” who move in from other areas of the state or from another state—usually because they hear that an enclave of their kind of people is growing, sometimes for jobs, and sometimes for better welfare.
St. Cloud’s Somali population is now growing as Somalis are arriving directly from hot spots around the world. (The direct resettlement by the Lutherans to St. Cloud began in around 2010.)
So is it any surprise that diversity is not beautiful and tensions are building between Somali students and African American and white students in places like Tech High here this past Wedesday?
Ethinic tension inside Technical High School became public spectacle Wednesday on its south lawn as more than 100 students and parents, most of them Somali, protested what they described as a pattern of bullying and discrimination to which school officials have not adequately responded.
The protest started shortly before noon. Protesters, including students and parents, chanted slogans and waved posters.

Pay attention new proposed resettlement sites like Spartanburg, SC! You do not want a resettlement agency to open in your town! See our Ten things your town needs to know!
We have resettled 3,944 Somalis to the US in the first five months of fiscal year 2015 alone!
Why is it the US’s responsibility to continue to admit Somalis—something we have been doing for decades?
According to the US State Department’s handy list of contractors the Lutheran resettlement agency in St. Cloud is here:
MN-LIRS-08: Lutheran Social Services Of Minnesota
22 Wilson Avenue Suite 110
St. Cloud, MN 56302
