At the present resettlement rate, the US State Department will admit nearly another 10,000 Somalis to the US by September 30th, the end of the fiscal year (as of the beginning of March the contractors distributed 3,944 new Somalis to American towns and cities).
This story is from Minnesota where three US resettlement contractors are still bringing them in even if there are no jobs!
Who is to blame? Lutheran Social Service (we told you about them here just last week), Catholic Charities and World Relief (renamed Arrive Ministries). More than half of the state’s Somalis live in poverty and these so-called “Christian charities” just keep bringing them in!
Those three “charities” have seeded Minnesota with 10,000 Somalis in ten years (in addition to the thousands in previous years!). They have created a monster!
Remember in February when US State Department Spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, said we had to find jobs for ISIS militants so that they would give up their Islamic jihad agenda! So, why don’t they follow their own logic? By pouring Somalis into the US (where there are no jobs), the State Department and the contractors are setting up the same potentially explosive situation?
From Minnesota Public Radio about a recent Somali job fair in Minneapolis:
As the economy picks up across Minnesota, the state’s Somali-born population continues to battle higher than average unemployment.
The most recent figures, for 2011-2013, put Somalis’ unemployment at 21 percent, about three times the rate for the general population during the same period of time.
Some Somali community leaders are concerned that the lack of opportunities can fuel despair, especially among young people.
Census numbers show that of Minnesota’s five largest immigrant groups, Somali unemployment is the highest. More than half of the state’s Somalis live in poverty.
“We have the highest unemployment rate than any other groups — including the newcomers,” Mohamud Noor, Confederation of Somali Community in Minnesota executive director, said in February. He was speaking at a news conference held in response to a White House address on countering violent extremism.
Social problems — including unemployment and a lack of opportunity — can fuel sympathy for international extremism, he said: “Almost 30 percent [unemployment]. Nobody’s talking about that.”
Mohamud Noor, who leads the Confederation of Somali Community in Minnesota, watched this week as job-seekers clustered around recruiting tables for the Department of Homeland Security, Family Dollar and Delta Global Services at the Brian Coyle Center.
He said he was pleased to see tables for the Minneapolis Police Department and Hennepin County staffed by Somali employees. But he noted the prevalence of government and nonprofit employers: “Quite honestly, I’m disappointed.” he said. “I don’t see the Fortune 500 here.”
