AG Sessions blames courts for allowing cop shooter to avoid earlier deportation

This is an update of the story from Colorado Springs—a story getting almost no media attention—where an Iraqi refugee is charged with critically wounding a local police officer.

AG Sessions:  Al Khammasi should not have been in the country!

On Saturday, Officer Cem Duzel remained in critical condition.

Breitbart is reporting that Attorney General Jeff Sessions used the near fatal shooting of Duzel as something that would not have happened if earlier courts had not blocked the Iraqi refugee’s deportation in the wake of other crimes he had previously committed.

But that isn’t the important bit of news I want to focus on…..

Buried in the Breitbart story here, is perhaps the first time in ten years that I have seen any reporter make a direct connection between a refugee’s violent crime and the resettlement agency responsible for his placement in the state—Lutheran Family Services is specifically mentioned in news reports.

That is a breakthrough!!!!

Jeff Sessions Slams Court Decisions That Kept Accused Police-Shooting Refugee in U.S.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions drew attention to a series of federal court decisions holding laws using the blanket federal definition of “violent crime” to be “unconstitutionally vague” in a pair of talks about violent crime this past week.

The issue came to a head this week when it became clear an Iraqi refugee accused of trying to kill a Colorado Springs policeman had been slated to be deported in 2016 for his previous convictions, only to be saved by the courts.

For new readers: the much maligned Stephen Miller previously worked as an aide to then Senator Jeff Sessions. See my previous post from this morning.

“Right now we are missing one of the most important law enforcement tools we had because of a 2015 Supreme Court decision holding that the legal definition of ‘violent felony’ was too vague,” Sessions said in his prepared remarks. “The Supreme Court struck down part of a law called the Armed Career Criminal Act. It had been on the books for 30 years and applied thousands of times. … The Court ruled that the definition of ‘violent felony’ was too vague.”

Karrar Noaman Al Khammasi, 31, is charged with putting Colorado Springs Police Department officer Cem Duzel in the hospital in critical condition when he allegedly shot it out with law enforcement who responded to calls of shots fired last month. A Monday report in the Washington Times quoted a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) official confirming that Al Khammasi was allowed to stay in the country despite his criminal record because of one of these rulings.

Since arriving in 2012, Khammasi has, according to the Washington Times, been in trouble with the law no fewer than nine times, including “drunken driving, trespassing, assault, extortion and illegally possessing a firearm.”

Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountains is, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette, the organization responsible for bringing Khammasi and his fellow Middle Eastern refugees to Colorado’s El Paso County. They refused to comment on the case, telling the Gazette that “it does not comment on involvement with clients.

“Clients!” “Clients!” Yes, they refer to the refugees as clients!

More here.

Sessions says it is up to Congress to clarify the law.

And the next point that should be made about this case by the Attorney General or the White House is about vetting.  We were beaten over the heads by the media and the refugee contractors throughout the Obama Administration about the “robust” vetting refugees undergo before coming to the US.

Well! So much for the big lie!  “Robust” vetting surely should have screened out this creep!

  1. GOOD! I am glad that now local papers are calling these places out BY NAME! I grew up in Colorado, I watched what happened that beautiful state! Colorado was once a place that was safe to raise your family (that is why my family chose to live there), with the Rocky Mountains right there! We spent our summers not far outside of Kremmling, CO (not many people have heard of it) but a beautiful part of the mountains. My family had bought a cabin up there, once upon a time you could only get to it in the summers, in the winters there was too much snow. I am so thankful we had that growing up! Now multi-million dollar homes surround it, all it takes is a mercedes to get up there ALL YEAR ROUND. I cried so hard when I saw them destroy all that land. A “rancher” from California had bought the surrounding land & although the cabins in our area were all privately owned & on anywhere from 10-100 acres of property the rancher who bought the surrounding property made it impossible for the other private owners. eventually everyone sold. My family had moved out to Washington State & we sold our property to a young family who in turn turned around & sold it to the rancher. Our cabin was so remote we didn’t get radio stations, didn’t have electricity & the water was from a well that ran from a creek up above. One of the ways the rancher made life miserable for people was blocking off the creek so no water ran down to the well. The main source of water was on his property so there wasn’t anything we could do. He went in & had EVERY SINGLE INCH of the land appraised, & put barbed wire fence in, we found deer, elk, even a mountain lion caught in the fence, bcs the fence he put in wasn’t the kind you could squeeze through, he didn’t want ANYTHING going on his property. What was interesting too was ONLY WHEN he bought the land did we start seeing break ins, keep in mind HOW REMOTE we were. But now all our properties were vandalised, broken into. We had an CJ5 my dad used to restore Jeeps & we kept the CJ5 up there, it was an old vehicle not what cars are made out of today. The windshield was smashed, someone took an ax to the tires.
    This rancher promised he would bring jobs to the town, he didn’t hire a SINGLE LOCAL. I didn’t understand at the time, one thing my Dad & the locals were mad about was the rise in crime, the foreign language, the drunks (I HAVE NO IDEA if the drunks had anything to do with the other, but that is just what I remember!
    Anyways what was a beautiful small area, now is a SUPER RICH area. I have no idea if the crime went away. Probably now that the work is done. The guy wasn’t even a Rancher, just some rich jerk that bought ALL THAT LAND & turned it into a housing development. The rest of Colorado is just as bad, there is no more beautiful there, or very few places. Just remember that is what happens when your state turns BLUE! They take everything that was once BEAUTIFUL & RUIN IT!

  2. FYI Ann-Wordpress is suspending accounts. Fellowship of the minds a favorite of mine has been suspended. I fear this is just the beginning of the censorship of conservative and any websites they don’t approve of.
