Kansas City Somali family of nine wants Trump to let Dad in to US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 7, 2018

Leave it to the refugee industry’s public relations apparatus to get a story planted in the Kansas City Star just as Donald Trump arrived in the state next door for a rally for Kansas Republican candidates including gubernatorial candidate, a leading immigration control advocate, Kris Kobach.  One story is here.

(This Somali family lives in Kansas City, Missouri)

Here is the headline with the usual story line (family happy to be in America, only wish Dad was with them).

As Trump cuts refugee numbers, outlook dim for father to join KC Muslim family of 9

But, why wasn’t Dad with them and caring for them in Kenya (a safe country btw)?

 

welcoming Somalis in KC

The family arrived from Kenya in 2017 to cheers from local advocates for more refugee admissions.       https://www.nwahomepage.com/news/fox-24/somali-family-of-nine-touches-down-in-kansas-city-mo/653945636

Somali refugee Sahra Hassan Absuge and her eight children today enjoy what they could only dream of two years ago.

A two-story house. A couple of jobs. Schools. Donated appliances. [Food stamps and Medicaid fills the gap says the story.—-ed]

“I am so lucky,” Absuge said. “It’s by the grace of God that we are here.”

All that’s missing is her husband.

Also a refugee from Somalia, he seeks to one day join his Kansas City family after four years of being separated, trapped in another war zone. But chances for a reunion anytime soon appear slim, given ever-deepening cuts in the number of refugees allowed into the U.S.

Absuge and her children barely got in themselves.

Twenty months ago, dozens of cheering supporters at Kansas City International Airport greeted the family after they had squeezed through a tightening slipknot on refugee travel.

Continue here for all the happy talk and mention of their resettlement agency—Della Lamb—a Methodist group, a subcontractor of the Ethiopian Community Development Council (one of nine federal resettlement contractors that work for the US State Department).

Then a lament about a slowdown in family reunification:

At Della Lamb, Hyde and director of refugee resettlement Abdul Bakar could think of resettling only one Muslim on the Missouri side in the past year.

Absuge’s husband, the father of all eight of the children, is Muslim.

“There used to a good pipeline for family reunification,” said Judy Akers, Della Lamb’s executive director. “But there hasn’t been much spoken of that recently.”

Family reunification suspended in 2008 for Somalia….

Longtime readers may remember that the US State Department had to suspend the whole family reunification program for Somalis beginning in 2008 due to massive fraud in the P-3 (family reunification) program, see here.  The suspension lasted several years.

I sure hope Homeland Security is doing some robust vetting of Dad. He left their Nairobi village in 2014? (Someone check the age of the youngest child!).  But other news reports say they were living in a UN camp.

He went to Sudan looking for work in the middle of civil unrest there? And, then instead of returning to his family in a safe Kenya he ‘flees’ to Uganda. WTH!

Dad then ‘finds his family’ on YouTube videos?

He could have found them if he had returned to safe Kenya from his sojourn in Sudan instead of hotfooting it to Uganda!

KC Star continues….

….father left their Nairobi refugee village in 2014 to seek work in Sudan. He instead encountered homelessness, civil war and hunger before fleeing to Uganda. When his family resettled in America, his wife didn’t know if Abdullahi was alive or dead. [Really! Or did this family have a better shot of getting in to the US as women and children only?—ed]

Wow! Dad found after the family got to KC!

The father, through friends in Nairobi, learned of the family’s whereabouts with the help of the internet and those YouTube videos. “Search ‘refugees’…and our family of nine pops up,” Absuge said through the interpreter.

    I have a better idea. Take the 9 Somalis and reunite them with the father in Somalia where the United States has given, and still gives, hundreds of millions of dollars in humanitarian aid and allow them to rebuild their country to live in.

    Never let him in. In fact, deport the other family members back to Somalia. WHY are we still letting these people come here? Look at the grinning fools holding the signs. That’s why! Be grinning right up to the second they get their throats slit!

    MUSLIMS are a blight, a disease, a cancer that is misuses, taking advantage of the freedom in the U.S. & Texas. ALL MUSLIMS are to be deported immediately, the Saudi’s wealth confiscated as they are guilty of promoting the destruction of the U.S. & Texas by supporting & building mosques which promotes violence against the west, as Sharia Law demands obedience to Allah / $atan & those that DO NOT subscribe are put to death. MUSLIMS are hereto conquer the west. Ask any of them?
    Muslim women are breeders, copy centers that are spreading the cancer that MUST be eradicated from the host.

    The Immigration & Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization & nationality for the United States.

    That Act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law & the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of aliens to the US & remains in effect today.

    Among the many issues it covers, one in particular found in Chapter 2, § 212, is the prohibition of entry in to the US if the alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the govt. of the United States by force, violence or by other unconstitutional means.”

    This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the U.S. but this law is being ignored by the White House.

    Islamic immigration to the United States would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law & the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithethical to the United States govt., the Constitution & to the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam & its form of govt.

    Now the politically correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the United States b/c Islam is a ’religion.’

    Whether it is a ‘religion’ is immaterial b/c the law states that aliens who are affiliated w/ any organization that advocates the overthrow of our govt. are prohibited.

    Remedy – return All MUSLIMS to the Saudi dessert – by any means necessary!

  11. Reblogged this on islamnewworldorder and commented:
    Yes, certainly a propaganda sob story!
    My first thought–How the hell did this woman get 9 kids without the dad being around? As Ann says, why wasn’t the dad with them in Kenya? Was he out beheading Christians maybe? That’s NINE!–NINE kids! Just ONE of the ways the muslims overwhelm a host country.
    Sorry, but if this woman longs for her husband send her and her NINE kids back to him!!!!
    Actually–NO!!!!–I’m NOT sorry!!!!

    No thanks. So, has Dad saved enough to return his family to Kenya yet? He’s had 4 years, correct?
