The White House is pushing back on false media narrative that no refugees have been arrested for crimes/terrorism

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 7, 2017

We’ve been telling you about them for years and recently chronicled ten cases of Islamic terror arrests and additional cases of refugees committing heinous crimes, see here.

This morning the media, at least Fox News (did not hear a word of it on CNN in the 5 a.m. hour) is reporting that the White House has a list of refugee criminals/terrorists.

Here is what Leo Hohmann said yesterday at World Net Daily:

Travel-ban judge makes decision based on whopping lie

The judge who granted an injunction against President Donald Trump’s temporary ban on travel from seven Muslim-majority countries based his decision on a blatantly inaccurate premise.

Short memory? Doesn’t read the news? Or deliberately whitewashing? Not good!

Judge James Robart, a federal district judge in Seattle, stated that no one from the seven countries on Trump’s list – Iraq, Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen and Libya – has been arrested on terrorism charges since the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on America.

His comment, made in open court on Friday, went unchallenged in the establishment media all weekend and into Monday, while WND reported it was inaccurate and gave a partial list of terror incidents that have been plotted or carried out by Somali and Iraqi immigrants since 9/11.

Where is Politifact? Where is Snopes? Where are all the other media fact-checkers to correct the mistaken judge?

“Judge Robart no doubt knows the mainstream media is a propaganda arm for the left’s globalist agenda, and so no one would report the falsity of his statement except ‘discredited’ or ‘right-wing’ news outlets,” said Robert Spencer, an Islam expert who blogs for the David Horowitz Freedom Center at JihadWatch.org.

Finally, on Monday afternoon, the Associated Press came out with a fact-check on Robart’s comment, debunking it as patently false.

“WASHINGTON — The federal judge who halted President Donald Trump’s travel ban was wrong in stating that no one from the seven countries targeted in Trump’s order has been arrested for extremism in the United States since the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Just last October, an Iraqi refugee living in Texas pleaded guilty to attempting to provide support to the Islamic State group, accused of taking tactical training and wanting to blow himself up in an act of martyrdom. In November, a Somali refugee injured 11 in a car-and-knife attack at Ohio State University, and he surely would have been arrested had he not been killed by an officer.”

[….]

So Robart either has a short memory, does not read the news, or was deliberately whitewashing the facts in an attempt to strike down Trump’s executive order.

And, see Hohmann here in 2015 reporting on a list of, at that time, 72 cases compiled by Senator Jeff Sessions!

  1. I have even less faith in our judicial system now that I know some of our judges don’t bother to research issues. This judge is either deliberately ignoring evidence that has appeared on this blog several times, or he is not doing his homework. Either way, he should be removed from the bench.

  2. Another lie they always tell us is that there are plenty of jobs, so we shouldn’t worry about taking in all of these immigrants, asylum seekers, and refugees. However, I just read an article today written by a very credible tech insider that is predicting a 60% unemployment rate for the next generation of Americans, due to technology. What this article fails to mention, however, is how this unemployment rate will be significantly increased by the number of foreigners we keep letting in this country in unprecedented numbers: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/silicon-valley-rightour-jobs-already-disappearing-andrew-yang?trk=eml-email_feed_ecosystem_digest_01-hero-0-null&midToken=AQEZLP_W0vHwNg&fromEmail=fromEmail&ut=23DG5styg73DE1

    How long are we going to keep supplying a rational explanation for moves such as the judge made in blocking the ban? Does he not know that such bans were implemented by Clinton and Obama both? Maybe he gets his perspective from leftist NGOs, or Islamic propaganda. Maybe he’s a brainwashed fool, used by those who want to destabilize America and encourage the mob mentality in the streets. Maybe he just wants his moment of fame, or a “legacy”. Not saying any of these are the correct explanation; just saying there’s no simple explanation.

    • Hi Cathy,

      All of these are reasonable explanations. He may believe in his decision, or He Knows it is Wrong, and Money, Power, and Acceptance are his Motivations. Either Way HE IS DERELICT. I don’t spend time trying to decipher. I only try to Keep Track of Who We are Up Against. We Can Add this “Judge” to the list.

  7. While they are at, it let’s add a few countries to the ban since we are investigating who committed the crimes. Saudi Arabia responsible for 9-11. Pakistan
    responsible for San Bernadino, Orlando killer born in US but raised by Afghan parents (more than likely refugees). Where is Afghanistan on the list. They are going to be sorry they said no crimes by these countries because Donald J Trump might just add some. This whole thing is a big LIE. Don’t forget the Rohingya muslim from Burma that a brutally raped and cause the death of young 9 yr old girl and the Burmese here in New Bern NC that slaughtered 3 children. All were refugees. Isn’t that enough?

  8. Muslim Refugees as they are called are here to terrorize all life. They obey God’s enemy that terrorized all life with death that is seen here and in the universe. God made stars to be eternal like he is. That is not what is seen.
