To date, 815 Syrian refugees admitted to US; 92% are Muslim

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 1, 2015

Since yesterday was the end of the month, I thought it was time to check out the government data bases to see how many Syrian refugees have been admitted to the US over the last few years (I went back to January 1, 2012).  Remember that the UN has 11,000 Syrians picked out for us and that the FBI testified in February that they cannot be screened because there are no records available on these people who fled Syria and are mostly living in UN camps.

Deciding the future for your towns and cities: Anne Richard, Asst. Sec. of State for PRM and Antonio Guterres, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. She is under pressure to keep Guterres happy!

The US State Department is on a push to get 2,000 to your towns by September 30th (the end of FY2015).  That is not nearly what the UN wants, but is the result of the difficult security screening process that the FBI told Congress about.

This is what I learned:

Since 2012 we admitted 815 Syrian refugees through the Refugee Admissions Program.  On April 4th, I reported 682

They are on a roll now—133 admitted in the last few weeks.

The top five states receiving Syrians are:

California (103)

Texas (100)

Illinois (87)

Arizona (64)

Pennsylvania (51)

36 states received some Syrians.

Of the 815 Syrians, 749 are Muslims of some sort with the vast majority (701) being Sunni Muslims That means 92% are Muslim.

If you are being told in your town that you are going to get mostly Christians, don’t believe it.  Only 43 self-identified ‘Christians’ (that includes 1 Catholic) have been admitted.  That is 5% of the total.

Don’t forget!  The contractors are pushing for 65,000 Syrians to be admitted to the US by the time Obama leaves office!

By the way, if you are saying to yourself that there are a lot more than 815 Syrians around, remember that there are other legal programs that have admitted, or allowed Syrians to stay in the US , and also some very likely illegal alien Syrians in the mix as well.

Seattle: Major ISIS recruiter allegedly a Somali twenty-year-old woman

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 1, 2015

Regular readers here know that Seattle is one of the primary resettlement sites the US State Department and its contractors*** have chosen for Somali refugees.   And, be assured that the vast majority of Somalis in the US are here as refugees or the children of refugees.  Some get across the border illegally, but most are here legally thanks to the Refugee Act of 1980 (Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden and Jimmy Carter).

Photos she posted helped investigative reporters pinpoint her last known location.

Reader Brandon, from Australia alerted us to this news story (Channel 4 News in the UK broke the story), but I’m posting this one (below) because it identifies the alleged recruiter (ISIS cheerleader) as a Somali.

In one of the several stories I read on the case the word Hijrah is discussed as the mystery woman refers to the migration to the Islamic State.

Gee, so how did a news outfit in the UK figure this out before our own FBI?

From Sputnik News:

A major recruiter for the Islamic State has turned out to be a mid-20s journalism student in Seattle who liked football, cheeseburgers, and convincing women in Syria and the EU to fight for Islamist extremism.

The student, a Somali woman named Rawdah Abdisalaam, who was known under the Twitter handle @_UmmWaqqas was discovered to be working as a senior recruiter while living and studying in the coastal city. Reporters for Channel 4 News in the UK figured out she was based in Seattle by identifying background locations in photos she posted on her account.

Her Twitter account had multiple names like @Rawdah_Abdi and @Rodaa27 and she had 8,000 followers. It has since been deactivated.

Media had in the past speculated that she was Dutch or British. She was a shadowy figure, face never shown, who would be one of the last contacts potential recruits for the Islamic State would reach out to before crossing into their new life of combat.

But her Twitter account gave her away as she tweeted photos of football games (she’s a Broncos fan) or pizza from the comfort of a major American city, all while encouraging young men and women to emigrate to the Islamic State’s battle grounds.

[….]

Friends confirmed that @_UmmWaqqas was Abdisalaam’s account but that she had left Seattle, indicating to reporters she may have headed to Saudi Arabia, or to Denver, Colorado.

There is lots more, be sure to see the full story at Channel 4 News.

We have brought 4,425 Somalis into the US in FY2015 as of April 6th.  Why are we bringing any?
