Maine: Sudanese refugee pleads guilty in 2015 murder of teen

This is a diversity is beautiful alert!

A variety of migrants had a shoot-out in Portland, ME in 2015 and the result was that one young man (believed not to have known the shooters) died.

Before I give you the story (thanks to reader Frank), you must know that anyone granted asylum, as was the case with this Sudanese killer, is then considered a refugee and all of the protections, and welfare goodies that refugees we flew in on your dime receive, are also available to the successful asylum seeker.

To have been granted asylum, Majok arrived in the US on his own and convinced federal authorities that he would be persecuted if returned to Africa. (#ThisIsARefugee)

When you read through stories about him, see here for example, you see that he had several run-ins with law enforcement over the years.  I would like to know in what year he was granted asylum (before or after his criminal activities began?).

(Reminder: Sudan is one of 7 countries on Trump’s earlier ‘travel ban’ EO.)

From the Portland Press Herald:

Gang Deng Majok pleaded guilty to murder Friday in the shooting death of Treyjon Arsenault, the 19-year-old Westbrook High School graduate who was gunned down inside a Portland recording studio on Memorial Day weekend in 2015.

Majok, who was sentenced to 30 years by Justice Andrew M. Horton, agreed to change his plea rather than risk a trial.

Arsenault’s mother, Nancy Laxson of Scarborough, said she struggled with the decision to pursue the plea agreement, but is now relieved to see the sentencing completed before Sunday, which would have been Arsenault’s 21st birthday.

Laxson also was critical of authorities for not deporting Majok, a Sudanese national who had been granted asylum and had pleaded guilty to a string of misdemeanors.

It was not immediately clear whether someone with asylum status could be deported after being convicted of a misdemeanor. Majok will be subject to deportation after he completes his sentence for Arsenault’s murder.

According to authorities, Majok and one of Majok’s associates, Johnny Ouch of Westbrook, got into an argument with Mohamed Ali, a longtime rival of Ouch. [Was Mohamed a Somali?—ed]

The argument escalated and Majok and Ouch started shooting, according to Ouch’s attorney.

Many more details here.

We have a huge archive on Maine, click here. BTW, Maine attracts a lot of asylum seekers due to the structure of its welfare program. The Gov was trying to change that awhile back, but not sure if he did.

  1. It doesn’t take much to claim that you will be prosecuted if returned home, and that is a big part of the problem. People applying for refugee status should be required to stay home until they can prove, at their own expense, that they satisfy the requirements for refugee status. It is just too easy the way it is, and once they are allowed to stay during the vetting process, it makes it all that more difficult to get rid of them when and if we are ever able to do so.

  2. We need to start prosecuting public officials who do not deport these criminals as accessories in these cases.
