Everyone is abuzz about the DHS bus carrying Somalis looking for asylum in the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2015

Surely you’ve seen the news by now (it is all over the internet) about the DHS bus in California carrying Somalis and other Africans apprehended at our southern border and now asking for asylum.

The story, that began as a video clip making the rounds of social media is fleshed out further here at World Net Daily.   Luckily broadcaster Anita Fuentes of ‘Open your eyes people,’ was there to ask questions of the driver and to film the bus.

Go to World Net Daily for the full story and more about Somalis and asylum in the US.

For new readers, once an alien is granted asylum they may receive all of the social service benefits that a normal refugee gets, and they may get care from one of the federal resettlement contractors.

Asha Omar (19) granted asylum in El Paso, Texas in 2010, tells the improbable tale that she “made her way” by herself to America with a stop in Cuba before reaching the Mexican border. http://www.lcsun-news.com/las_cruces-news/ci_17039428

This is not news to us!

We have been telling readers for years about the Somali trail from Africa to our southern border and a claim of asylum.

In 2011, we urged Congress to investigate the strange phenomenon of a supposedly impoverished young Somali traveling sometimes from Somalia to Syria to Russia to Cuba and then to Central America or Mexico and making it to the US border where a claim for asylum would be made with the help of immigration lawyers who seemed to be expecting them!

It is not just in the Mediterranean region where an invasion is occurring!

Here is the 2011 post in which I urged Congress to investigate this strange business:

Is there a conspiracy by NGO’s to bring asylum seekers to US borders?

Here is an earlier post (2009) about Africans getting to South America on their way to the US southern border:

African asylum seekers reaching South America, hope to get to the US

And, here is a more recent post on the same subject:

Six Somalis headed to US arrested in Mexico

There are more posts on the same subject here at RRW, but no time to search for them right now.

I once saw a fantastic travel map for Somalis who ‘made their way’ to Russia and then flew to Cuba from there.  Next stop was Mexico and the US border (wish I could find it to show you!).

Does no one ever ask?  Who is helping these ‘youths’ and who is paying for it all?   I’ve seen estimates that such a travel plan costs upwards of $10,000.

36,144 refugees admitted to US in first seven months of FY2015 (fiscal year)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2015

Look at this cool map I found for how many refugees were resettled in your state relative to your population: “This map by Casey Cupp is warped to show which states take on the highest number of refugees relative to their population. For example, the densely populated New Jersey takes in a far lower rate of refugees than that of the two Dakotas. What the map shows is that the distribution of refugees looks very different when considering state populations as opposed to strictly the number of people living in each state.” http://www.humanosphere.org/basics/2014/02/map-day-refugees-accepted-us-states-population-adjusted/

I was just having a look at the statistics for FY2015 maintained by the US State Department on refugee admissions (I was checking out Malta), but thought you might like to know which groups we are admitting (welcoming!) in the largest numbers.

The total number of refugees admitted so far in FY2015 (which ends on September 30th) is 36,144 from 80 countries. (Making sure we get lots and lots of diversity for your school systems to cope with!)

Here are the top ten in descending order:

Burma (9,040)

Iraq (8,229)

Somalia (4,993)

DR Congo (2,921)

Bhutan/Nepal (2,849)

Iran (1,474)

Cuba (1,093)

Ukraine (831)

Eritrea (801)

Syria (651)

Tip for using the data base Do not use the map for “processing country” because that tells you nothing about who we actually admitted.  For example, you will see that Kenya (on the processing country map) is listed as 1,537.  That does not mean that we admitted 1,537 Kenyans (we don’t take Kenyans as refugees, unless they are Obama relatives).  It means that 1,537 were processed in Kenya and those most likely are Somalis from the UN camps located in Kenya.

States which received over 1000 refugees in the last seven months (in descending order):

Texas (3,865)

California (2,974)

New York (2,008)

Michigan (1,696)

Arizona (1,667)

Ohio (1,591)

Washington (1,464)

Georgia (1,410)

Pennsylvania (1,384)

Illinois (1,383)

Florida (1,381)

Minnesota (1,250)   562 of those are new Somalis!

North Caroina (1,211)

For future reference, this post is archived in our ‘where to find information’ category and in our ‘refugee statistics’ category.

For wannabe researchers, this data base (where I got the above numbers) is only for the present fiscal year.  To go to a more extensive data base going back to 2002, go here.

ISIS making millions trafficking ‘refugees’ to Europe from Libya

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2015

Obama and his girls (Hillary, Susan Rice and Samantha Power) sure blundered when they joined the pack to bring down Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

I wonder if the media will one day point a finger at this bunch for destabilizing North Africa just as they do now at George W. Bush for bringing down Saddam Hussein and destabilizing Iraq (I won’t hold my breath).

Here Time magazine reports that trafficking in migrants is part of the new business model used by ISIS to fund their operations.

Migrants pay thousands of dollars to armed groups in Africa and the Middle East on their journey to Europe.

Illegal migrants wait to be rescued off Malta earlier this month.

The movement of migrants across the Middle East and Africa towards Europe has generated up to $323 million for the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) and other jihadist groups, a new report has revealed.

Many of the migrants embark from Libya on unseaworthy boats which have foundered with thousands drowning and thousands being rescued by European navies. At least 170,000 refugees made the sea journey last year, and that number looks likely to increase this year, according to the European Union’s border-surveillance organization Frontex.

European Union and African officials are scrambling to find ways to stop the migration. On Wednesday the Guardian revealed a 19-page E.U. strategy report to crack down on the smugglers, which included air strikes on boats and possibly the use of troops in Libya.

But while E.U. officials anguish over the plight of people crossing the Mediterranean to get to Europe, the migration has proved an invaluable business opportunity for groups like ISIS. So valuable that international crime experts believe ISIS might have launched some attacks specifically in order to drive people to flee, and then profit from their flight.

Read more here.

Just a reminder!  US readers this affects you!

We are bringing some of those illegal boat people to America as REFUGEES and sending them to your towns and cities.   I just checked State Department data bases and see that as of April 30th we had admitted 331 of Malta’s illegal aliens to the US in 300 refugee cases this fiscal year alone.  That means that the majority coming to America are not in family groups and are most likely single young men.

We told you here that some aliens from Malta ended up in South Carolina.

Go here for our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series and here for our extensive Malta archive.
