Repost: US Cases of refugees arrested or convicted on terror charges, and other heinous crimes

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 29, 2017

Dear dishonest (anti-Trump) mainstream media reporters, why can’t you report that he might have a point about our security!

I’ve had requests from readers in the last day or so for a list of cases where refugees/asylees have been arrested and have either been convicted on terrorism related charges or are in the process of being tried on those charges.  And, for good measure I added in some horrible crimes committed by refugees in the US in this post I wrote in mid-December.

jasim-ramadon

Iraqi interpreter Jasim Ramadon serving 28 years for raping Colorado woman. Will he be deported when released?

I’m posting it again because we have new readers and because Kevin Appleby, in his interview with Tucker Carlson, here, couldn’t think of one!

By the way, Appleby dismissed the Tsarnaev (Boston bomber) brothers saying they weren’t really refugees. They were successful asylum seekers which makes them refugees under the Refugee Act of 1980!  The refugee propagandists have been getting away with parsing their words for way too long!

And, if you missed my previous post about the Iraqi interpreter serving a long prison sentence for leading a gang rape of a Colorado woman, go here.

From December 15, 2016:

I’ve been procrastinating about writing this post, because it required work!

I had to go back through my over 2,000 posts on refugee crimes, here, and pull out Islamic terror cases involving refugees. I chose ten, not for any other reason than these ten below are at the top of my mind. And, I think ten is enough to counter the disinformation campaign going on.

For good measure, I have also added (below) a few spectacular crimes involving Muslim refugees.

But, I have to do it (to write this) because clearly the refugee industry has sent out talking points that I am seeing parroted many times each day which pretty much go like this: no refugee has committed an act of terror in the US.  LOL! And, maybe that is because many were arrested and convicted BEFORE they could do anything!

And, let me ask you, when evaluating the fact that you (as a taxpayer) paid for a refugee’s opportunity to come to America and in some cases below even paid to raise the refugee to adulthood, does it matter for your anger level that he/she planned to kill Americans or planned to kill some innocents somewhere else in the world?  So when the refugee advocates make a distinction about the location of the wannabe jihadist’s target, it’s a difference without a distinction to me!

Here are ten that come to mind:

~The Somali (Mohamed Osman Mohamud) arrested on charges he planned to blow up a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Oregon was a refugee.  See here in 2010. He was arrested as he planned to detonate a bomb.

mohanad-hammadi

Kentucky refugee terrorist Mohanad Hammadi is serving a life sentence. ” Hammadi also admitted to lying on U.S. immigration paperwork about his involvement in Iraqi insurgent operations against American troops.” https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2016/06/19/kentucky-one-of-two-convicted-iraqi-refugee-terrorists-wants-his-sentence-reduced/

~ Two Iraqi refugees were convicted on charges that they helped Al Qaeda in Iraq and may have killed American servicemen there.  They lied on their refugee applications. Best coverage of 2011 case here by ABC News.  The entire Iraqi flow to America had to be re-screened that year!

~In 2012 Abdullatif Ali Aldosary (an Iraqi refugee) set off a bomb at a Social Security Office in Arizona. Sentenced here.

~As successful asylum seekers, the Boston Bombers were refugees who had benefited from America’s generosity. One of many stories here about the 2012 deadly Boston Marathon attack by the Tsarnaev brothers (Chechens).

~In 2013 Fazliddin Kurbanov was arrested in Idaho and later convicted on terrorism charges. Kurbanov is an Uzbek refugee. See here.

~In early 2016 an Iraqi refugee (Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan) living in Texas was accused of planning to bomb a local popular mall, see story at Newsweek.

~In September 2016, a Somali refugee went on a stabbing spree at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Learn more here about Dahir Adan.  Knife attacks are signature terror acts for devout Muslims.

~Also in September, the Chelsea bomber, Ahmad Rahimi, was arrested and we learned his family came to the US from Afghanistan and were given asylum.  We need to be paying more attention to these asylum seekers since they enter the country completely unscreened and their numbers are on the rise. Story at CNN.  Once granted asylum they are given all the same rights and privileges as the refugees we fly in.

~And, we can’t forget the most recent successful attack by Somali refugee slasher, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, at Ohio State, see here.

~For number ten, I’m lumping the dozens of wannabe Somali refugee jihadists (mostly from Minnesota) who have been identified and/or convicted of wanting to leave the country to fight for al-Shabaab or ISIS. See here Several like those in that recent case, were convicted.

Now, here are some horrible crimes I’ve reported over the years!

And remember not only did you pay for the refugee’s trip to America and his welfare when he got here, but now you will pay for (in many cases) their lives in prison.

~It is hard to rank murder cases, but for me the top of the list is a horrible rape and murder of a Christian refugee child in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2008.  The Burmese Muslim murderer (Esar Met) is now incarcerated for life. The child was the youngest child and only daughter of a Burmese Christian family.

~In 2013 a Somali refugee in North Dakota was sentenced to life in prison for the 2011 murder of a native American family he had become involved with.

~In this case in 2014, an Iraqi refugee murdered his wife (she was going to leave him in 2012) and he penned a fake note trying to pin the murder on Islamophobes in the neighborhood. He was found guilty here and he wasn’t too happy about it! Even CAIR had gotten involved when he tried to pin the murder on Islamophobic Americans.

~And this is an awful case from Colorado where a gang of Iraqi refugees brutally raped a local Colorado Springs woman—“the worst case in Colorado history.” Diana West did a great investigative report on the story, here, at Townhall.

~And, if you have never seen the 2009 Roanoke, VA kidnapping story, don’t miss it here!  No one ever accused these refugees of being too bright! By the way, these guys only got about 5 years so they are probably out roaming Anytown, USA right now. I doubt they were deported.

I’m sure I have more, but I want to move on to other news today.

Here is an idea!

If your town is having a public meeting on whether to ‘welcome’ refugees, you know the pro-refugee team will be there with their talking points. Maybe print this post out and take it along to counter them.  Or, better still, dig into some of these cases and be prepared with maybe even a poster with photos and talking points of your own! [Update: See a poster one of our grassroots activists made by scrolling down here.]

And, when they tell you that refugees bring economic benefits to communities, ask if they are factoring in the costs of crime/trials/incarceration!

Trip down memory lane: Iraqi who helped American troops convicted of brutal rape

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 29, 2017

Yesterday, when we reported on the befuddled Kevin Appleby trying to respond to Tucker Carlson’s questions about refugee crimes in America, we were stunned to see Appleby not be able to think of one case.  Was he lying?  Or is it possible he honestly doesn’t know because the cases we have reported on our pages never made national mainstream media news!

And, since the media (and refugee industry advocates) are now screaming bloody murder about the ‘pure as the driven snow’ Muslims who helped US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, below is a repost of a story from 2014:

Iraqi refugee rapist found guilty in Colorado; Diana West reports the story nationally

Author and one of the best investigative researchers in America, Diana West, has made the Colorado rape story a national story here at Townhall.   As we noted in our report on the trial of “Steve-O,” an Iraqi man who “helped” American soldiers in Iraq and who in turn was granted asylum in the US because a soldier befriended him, horrific cases like this one rarely make national news in large part, I believe, because it goes against the melting pot mythology surrounding Islam and our immigration policy that has opened America’s doors to an alien culture.

jasim-ramadon

Poster boy for Iraqis who helped Americans! Jasim Ramadon doing 28 years to life for brutal rape. Why didn’t we just deport him to Iraq and save ourselves what probably will amount to hundreds of thousands of tax dollars to keep him incarcerated.

But, Diana West, says it best at Townhall.    See her blog post this week too, here.  She did some serious digging and reveals that Jasim Ramadon (aka Steve-O, aka Jay Hendrix) was a problem from his earliest days in America.  Why was that?

Two Iraqi men in their 20s have been convicted of a bloody sex crime in Colorado that left the victim, a woman in her 50s, in need of immediate surgery and a colostomy bag. Three other Iraqi men, also in their 20s,were convicted on lesser charges as accessories.

Four points set this case apart. First, there is its brutality: Law enforcement officers describe the July 2012 assault as “rare” and “horrific” and “one of the worst in Colorado history.” Second, all of these men once assisted U.S. military forces in Iraq as informants and interpreters. Third, every one of them received permanent residency status in the U.S., due in part to efforts made by U.S. military members on their behalf. Fourth, this extraordinary case and the ties that bind it to the U.S. military and the war in Iraq have received little coverage.

You must go read the whole thing!   She has uncovered some amazing additional facts including the laughable news that Ramadon once made an appearance on Oprah.

Here is the conviction story from earlier in the week at The Gazette.

As I’ve said previously I would like to see some brave members of Congress introduce legislation that would put the financial burden of criminal trials and the cost of incarceration of “refugees” and “asylees” on the US State Department and not on the local county or state where the refugee has been placed.

There also needs to be thorough consideration of deportation in cases like this one.  Send Ramadon back to Iraq and let him take the consequences there rather than burden the taxpayers of Colorado with the cost of his imprisonment for possibly a life term.  Imagine the demands Ramadon’s “religion” is going to place on the prison system there.

We have a crimes category here at RRW with 2,064 previous posts. Not all the crimes listed are as heinous as this one and many of those posts are crimes committed elsewhere in the world by refugees and asylum seekers, but if any serious investigative reporters have any interest, it is a good place to start!

RRW Weekly roundup for week ending January 27, 2017

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 29, 2017

It has been a big week here at RRW!

screenshot-207

Just last Monday the ORR published the 2015 report to Congress. These reports are treasure troves of information. Serious students of the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program should have a look: https://www.acf.hhs.gov/orr/resource/office-of-refugee-resettlement-annual-report-to-congress-2015

This weekly roundup ended on Friday, the 27th before the big news hit the fan Friday evening.

Knowledge is power!

I was pleasantly surprised to see that two (out of the top three posts of the week) were widely read because it means that you were more interested in educating yourselves last week than in the hot juicy news coming out of Washington.

That is good, that you are so interested in continuing to educate yourselves (in pockets of resistance!), because it sure looks like there is no time to rest now.

For all of you new readers (and there have been thousands in the last few days, many from around the world), I try every week to get something posted on which posts interested readers the most in the previous week.

So here are the Top Three for the week ending on Friday.  (Top daily posts are in the right hand side bar):

Is there a Refugee placement office in your town? Updated list available

Breaking news! Reuters is reporting that President Trump will sign executive orders on refugees tomorrow

“New site development guide” for those attempting to make your town a new refugee resettlement site

For new readers:

See recent monthly round-ups for instructions on getting the most out of RRW (at the end of both the October roundup, here, and at the end of the November roundup, here.)

A word about comments….

I don’t post any comments with foul language, threats of violence, or comments that are personal attacks on other commenters. I am also sick to death with comments about the Jews/Israel being responsible for every problem in the world, so don’t bother sending those.

As I have said repeatedly, for nearly ten years, I have no obligation to be LOL! ‘fair and balanced,’ I try to be as factually accurate as I can, but I am a blogger!  I have a point of view.

If you don’t like what I am saying and you feel strongly about an issue or several issues, write your own blog on your own time! I do this on my time, no one pays me, and so this is my time, my charitable work! If you don’t like what I say, don’t read RRW!

One more thing! I have been a supporter of Donald Trump from the beginning. I never had another candidate. But, that does not mean I won’t criticize him and his administration when I don’t like what they are doing (like that Australia deal if Reuters is being accurate).   You know the other side is going to attempt to pull him in their political direction so there must necessarily be a counter pressure from us.

Thanks to long time readers for all of your kind words. I apologize for not always responding!

Update! Oopsy, put the wrong year in the title, corrected now!

Trump Watch! Did Trump cave and agree to take Australia’s rejected asylum seekers?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 29, 2017

I sure hope Reuters has this wrong!

If it is true it is truly insane!

For new readers, in the waning months of the Obama Administration, Obama made a deal with Australian Prime Minister Turnbull to take off their hands somewhere between 1000-2000 migrants being held in detention on offshore islands.

Australia does not want to give them asylum and bring them to their mainland, but Obama thought it was a swell idea for them to be distributed to American cities and towns!

nauru-detention-center

In 2015 the little darlings burned down the detention center on Nauru. And we are going to take some of these detainees to your towns and cities? Awful story and photo here: http://www.themercury.com.au/news/national/nauru-detention-centre-exstaffer-makes-horrific-claims-in-damages-suit/news-story/d3b3d623be8c968d960b3c90541207d2

We are told by Reuters that Trump agreed to honor the deal in a phone call with the Australian prime minister yesterday.

Again, Australia does not want these mostly Muslim illegal aliens who attempted to reach Australia by boat!

(See our past posts on the ‘Australia deal’ here.)

Here is Reuters:

President Donald Trump has confirmed that his administration will honor a refugee resettlement deal with Australia, a source close to the Australian government said on Sunday.

Trump spoke by telephone with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull earlier on Sunday, officials in both countries said, one of a number of conversations the new U.S. president held with world leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

The Australian government source told Reuters Trump confirmed the deal to resettle asylum seekers currently held in offshore detention camps to the United States would go ahead.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration had said the United States would take a substantial number of the 1,200 asylum seekers, who are held in the procession centers on remote Pacific islands in Papua New Guinea and Nauru, after Turnbull agreed to resettle refugees from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

U.S. Homeland Security officials have begun assessing the asylum seekers, although it was unclear when those found to be genuine refugees would be resettled. [Australia obviously found none who are legitimate refugees!—ed]

Many of those in Australia’s offshore camps have fled conflict in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, and elsewhere.

Senator Grassley and Rep. Goodlatte identified the nationalities as the following: Iran, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, Sudan and “stateless” (probably Rohingya), here.

So what kind of a deal is this Donald?

We get Australia’s rejected asylum seekers (house, feed, clothe them on our dime) and a bunch of illegal aliens not even in the US from Central America being held in Costa Rica go to Australia.  What do we get out of that deal???

I’m guessing there is a strong caveat that Reuters may not want to focus on and that is that the ‘refugees’ must get through our surely stepped-up security screening when they clearly didn’t get through Australia’s.

Just in case….

Judge orders ‘stay’ of Trump’s executive action for arriving refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 29, 2017

It is all over the news this morning (especially, of course, on CNN). Those arriving refugees being held in airports have been released into American communities.  CNN says there were 109 throughout the country with another 173 attempting to board planes abroad.

aclu-lawyer

ACLU lawyer and ACLU’s executive director talk about their victory outside NY court. Photo and story here: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/federal-judge-grants-emergency-stay-thwart-trump-refugee-ban-article-1.2958483

I really can’t tell you how far this will go.  We will just have to wait for a bunch of talking head lawyers to dissect it for us.  And, I have so much else to get to including the dreadful news that, again according to CNN, Trump agreed to admit those 1000-2000 reject asylum seekers Australia was holding in detention—a huge disappointment!

Here is ABC on the ACLU’s victory:

A federal court in Brooklyn tonight granted an emergency stay on President Trump’s executive order that bans immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries for two Iraqi men who had valid visas to enter the United States but were detained today when they arrived in New York.

Trump’s order calls for an immediate suspension of immigration from countries with ties to terror, including Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, Iraq, Iran and Libya, for a time period of 90 days. It also calls for the complete suspension of Syrian refugees for an indefinite period.

The ACLU, which had filed the challenge on behalf of the two men, contended that the stay applied nationally to all cases, but that was not clear from the ruling. ABC News was attempting to clarify whether that was the case.

The ruling does not appear to overturn administration policy, but does appear to apply to all of those people currently detained at airports across the country who were facing imminent deportation. The judge asked repeated questions of the federal prosecutors charged with defending the executive order, but they were unable to provide numbers of people who were facing the prospect of returning to a country where there lives would be in danger.  [All they had to do was call up Barbara Day and/or Laurence Bartlett at the DOS Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration and they could get numbers of those arriving.—ed]

Continue reading here.

And, if you would like to dig deeper, one of  our readers ‘Theodore’ commented at this post and has sent links with the wording of the ‘stay’ and some analysis.
