San Diego: Unfair says Syrian refugee that her brothers can’t come to US from Saudi Arabia

What is wrong with this sob story? This Syrian family and the brothers left behind were in Saudi Arabia (one of the brothers had already emigrated to S.A.). Saudi Arabia is a safe country!  Therefore, why are these people now the responsibility of the US taxpayer? They weren’t living in some sqaulid camp. They were … Continue reading San Diego: Unfair says Syrian refugee that her brothers can’t come to US from Saudi Arabia

Federal contractor removes director of its San Diego office in wake of investigation

See my previous report on what is alleged about the International Rescue Committee (IRC).  (This is David Miliband’s organization.) And, if you are thinking, ho hum, so refugees got placed possibly illegally in inadequate housing (as some of you previously commented), I need to explain why this case is significant. It is surely not a … Continue reading Federal contractor removes director of its San Diego office in wake of investigation

San Diego IRC office gets slap on wrist from US State Department

I reported the news here.  The giant New York City-based International Rescue Committee was found to be placing refugee families in housing that violated local codes and surprise! a local reporter investigated the story. The original investigation was posted on KPBS (not a rightwing news outlet!). Over the ten years I’ve been writing about the … Continue reading San Diego IRC office gets slap on wrist from US State Department

Will Starbucks test new refugee employees for TB (San Diego off the charts)?

Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart called Starbucks to see if new refugee hires (see my post earlier) will be tested for TB as part of their employment screening. Surprise! No response! From Breitbart: Starbucks held a hiring event exclusively for refugees in El Cajon, California on Tuesday, part of its recently announced commitment to hire … Continue reading Will Starbucks test new refugee employees for TB (San Diego off the charts)?

They have overloaded San Diego with refugees and now they are boo-hooing!

Of course this whine-fest is for one of two reasons (or both at once!).  The Refugee Resettlement Industry wants more of your money for programs (welfare, housing, medical care etc.) and because San Diego and other big cities have foolishly been so “welcoming” and consequently overloaded, that the industry now has a big excuse to … Continue reading They have overloaded San Diego with refugees and now they are boo-hooing!

San Diego refugee, one of 50 sent to Washington to lobby for the Lutherans

We told you here last month that the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) was organizing fifty refugees to go to Washington last week to lobby for more funds (more of your tax dollars) for themselves and their fellow resettlement contractors.*** Poor Sedrick Ntwali probably thinks his quest for your money will be money to … Continue reading San Diego refugee, one of 50 sent to Washington to lobby for the Lutherans

Brit who heads International Rescue Committee: Let’s send some more Syrians to San Diego

So, they can be with their kind of people! David Miliband, former UK foreign secretary and recently installed head of one of the nine major federal refugee contractors told the news media in a visit to San Diego this week that 12,000 Syrians should be admitted to the US in 2014.  (Keep in mind that … Continue reading Brit who heads International Rescue Committee: Let’s send some more Syrians to San Diego

Three Somali former refugees sentenced to prison in San Diego

Including an Imam from a local Somali mosque. This is the culmination of the story we’ve followed since 2010. When I search RRW for ‘San Diego Somali terrorists’ I get pages of posts, so here is an idea, maybe now that ABC News has re-discovered investigative journalism (see Iraqi refugees yesterday), this might just be … Continue reading Three Somali former refugees sentenced to prison in San Diego

San Diego Somalis want new trial, judge says NO!

We’ve told you about this case before, it has gone on since at least 2010.  Four Somali refugee men were found guilty of supporting the terror group al-Shabab (sometimes al-Shabaab) in Somalia, but now they claim their constitutional rights were trampled by the NSA. From KPBS Radio News: A San Diego federal judge Thursday rejected … Continue reading San Diego Somalis want new trial, judge says NO!
