Kenya: UNHCR out! Somalis out!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 15, 2015

Update April 16th: Lutherans and Catholics squabble about whether it’s a good idea or not to close Dadaab, here.

In the wake of that horrific attack by al-Shabaab at Easter where over 100 Christians were slaughtered by Somalis, the Kenyan government wants the massive camp (where we get a large number of the US-bound Somalis from!) closed.

They are also planning a border wall with Somalia!

Close the camp! The US is accepting refugees from this massive UNHCR camp, Dadaab, in Kenya which the Kenyan government now wants closed in order to move the Somalis and the UN out of Kenya!

From AP (hat tip: Joanne).  The UNHCR has three months to get out!

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The United Nations High Commission for Refugees has three months to close a refugee camp in eastern Kenya and send the more than 400,000 Somalis living there back to their country or else the Kenyan government will relocate them, Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto has said.

The Kenyan government says the Dadaab refugee camp in eastern Kenya has become a recruitment center for the extremist group al-Shabab whose gunmen last week killed 148 people at the country’s Garissa College University. Ruto said in a rally on Saturday that Kenya must be secured at all costs.

Garissa is our 9/11:

“We have asked the UNHCR to relocate the refugees in three months, failure to which we shall relocate them ourselves. The way America changed after 9/11 is the way Kenya will change after Garissa,” Ruto said in a statement distributed by his press office.  [Only problem is that our lesson was short-lived!—ed]

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta vowed a sharp response to last week’s attack at the university. Kenyan warplanes attacked suspected militant positions in Somalia, and the government said Wednesday that it was freezing accounts of organizations and individuals suspected of financing Islamic extremists.

Earlier in the week, the Kenyan government broke ground on a border wall with Somalia.  Learn more here.

UN choosing refugees for us from UN camps in Kenya!

A large number of our new US Somali refugees come from the UNHCR camps in Kenya.   We don’t take Kenyans as refugees so when you visit the State Department data and see that 1,424 refugees were processed into the US from Kenya from October 1, 2014 until April 6, 2015 (a little over 6 months!) know that they are largely Somalis the UN has chosen for us!

We have admitted to the US in that same time period a total of 4,425 Somalis picked up around the world!  (See data here) That means we will surely surpass 9,000 new Somalis in the US by the end of the fiscal year on September 30th.

If the FBI says we can’t screen the Syrians, how on earth are we screening the Somalis?

Editor:  This is our 4th stop around the world this morning.  See Australia, South Africa, Spain and now Kenya.

Spain: illegal migrant numbers increase; Syrians lead the pack with phony documents

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 15, 2015

Next in our little tour around the world is Europe (see Australia and South Africa) where the ‘Invasion of Europe’ continues apace because the EU does not have the backbone that the Australian government has at the moment.

By the way, we bring our US readers this news from across the globe so you can contrast and compare what America is doing to protect itself from the inevitable violence and chaos that I believe is coming.  So far, we aren’t heeding any warnings from abroad that I can see.

From The Local we learn that most are getting in with fake documents:

African illegal aliens climbing into Spain!

The number of illegal immigrants arriving in Spain jumped by 68 percent during 2014, the majority entering via Spain’s north African territories using fake documentation.

The number of illegal immigrants entering Spain through Ceuta and Melilla alone increased by more than half during 2014 compared to the year before with a surge in refugees arriving from Syria.

But although the headlines have given the most attention to those attempting to cross into the enclaves by climbing the fences, the majority of those who entered Spain did so with forged documentaton presented at the border.

The total of 12,549 illegal immigrants in 2014 was a big jump from the year before when 7,472 entered Spain illegally, according to Spanish Interior Ministry information.

The largest group arriving with fake documents is from Syria

The data, published by Europa Press on Monday, showed that Syrians comprised the largest group of migrants and that about 60 percent of all those arriving in Spain entered through its north African enclaves.

Violence against migrants flares again in South Africa (the “Rainbow Nation”)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 15, 2015

What a joke that Rainbow Nation mumbo-jumbo is!  Someone tell the mainstream media that the mostly black South Africans don’t “welcome” the stranger no matter what color they are! 

And, no matter what sort of myth the international Left has built up about South Africa.

No time to bring you up to speed on the mess the Mandela legacy has left.  See our South Africa archive here for more.

From Bloomberg:

Yesterday in Durban, an immigrant waits for gangs of locals….http://www.timeslive.co.za/thetimes/2015/04/15/flames-of-hate-engulf-durban

South Africa’s government is struggling to contain a flare up of attacks against foreigners in the port city of Durban that’s left at least five people dead and forced more than 1,000 immigrants to flee their homes.

Police battled with groups of foreigners on the streets of Durban’s city center on Tuesday as they burned tires and threw stones in protest after facing attacks from a mob, police spokesman Jay Naicker said by phone. Water cannons and rubber bullets were used to disperse various groups of locals and immigrants, the municipality said in a statement.

“It is completely unacceptable for South Africans to treat foreign nationals in such a diabolical and nefarious manner,” the municipality said. “The city will not tolerate any form of violence instigated by a few individuals.”

The wave of attacks in Durban since last week were sparked by locals who accused a supermarket of firing workers and hiring foreigners to replace them, according to the police. A 14-year-old boy was allegedly shot and killed during looting of immigrants’ shops on Monday night, bringing the death toll from the violence to at least five, according to the municipality. About 48 suspects have been arrested since April 11.

South Africa is in the midst of the worst anti-foreigner violence since 2008, when about 60 people were killed and 50,000 displaced from their homes. Attacks against mainly Somali, Ethiopian and Pakistani immigrants in townships around Johannesburg flared up in January after a Somali shop owner shot and killed a 14-year-old boy during an alleged burglary.

Comment worth noting: Correspondent from Australia brings us up to date

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 15, 2015

Editor’s note:  Since we have been so focused on the ruckus going on in the US with resettlement, especially as Rep. Trey Gowdy does the first brave thing  (out of Congress) that we have ever seen in our nearly eight year project to shed light on the US Refugee Admissions Program, we have been forgetting our readers around the world.

Below is an update from Australia thanks to ‘FatherJon’ where the Abbott government is one of the few in the world discouraging the illegal aliens (phony asylum seekers) from trying to break into their country.

 

 

Ann, the boats have stopped, due to the efforts of our Abbott Federal government. If they don’t get a lot right they’ve certainly got the boat problem solved.

Problem is that under the previous Labor governments a backload of foreign kids built up to several thousands, as families thought that this was a better ruse than just sending teenage ‘Ali’ out as a forward scout. A government can get tough with a young shaver and refuse him landing rights, but they can’t do that with a family which includes young kids, right? Wrong! Kids were locked up with their families, firstly on the mainland, then on off-shore detention centres, then in neighbouring countries that welcomed the cash injection as we off-set our detention costs at home by giving hand-outs to Papua New Guines, Nauru and Cambodia to look after the illegals.

However the human rights lawyers attacked that on all fronts, claiming it was doubly inhumane to lock up children, and the gradual push was to get as many kids on the mainland to be given temporary protection visas. This allowed them to go to school and lead lives outside internment. There are now a little over 100 kids left, who have yet to be placed due to initiatives of the present government.

The Abbott government is now negotiating with Iran to take back its own nationals, who comprise roughly 80% of the detainees, but it’s proving a tough nut to crack as Iran just says ‘we can’t take back our own if they didn’t want to be here in the first place’. Our Foreign Minister is in Iran as I write trying to work out a deal about sending them back.

See our entire Australia’ category for more.

The next US President needs to get some pointers from Tony Abbott!
