Caught! Somali man living in Vermont used false identity to get in to US as a refugee

Not surprising of course, but what is surprising is that he is actually being prosecuted. You can bet this wouldn’t be happening if Hillary was President! And, how is this for timing—see my previous post this morning about a retired foreign service officer blowing the whistle on widespread fraud in the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program. … Continue reading Caught!

Rutland, Vermont refugee program officially dead (for now)

Since I’m on the subject of Vermont—see machete attacker is son of Somali refugee in my previous post. And, since I told you about the shake-up at USCRI (the federal refugee contractor in charge of Vermont) yesterday, I figured that you might want to know the latest from Rutland where a huge public battle over … Continue reading Rutland, Vermont refugee program officially dead (for now)

Vermont machete attacker was the son of a Somali refugee (chain migration!)

That is what the Daily Caller has learned from the Dept. of Homeland Security, but I still have questions. See my previous posts here and here about the violent attack on a Vermont woman at a hotel for the homeless.     But, first, in every community where a person commits a crime, all of … Continue reading Vermont machete attacker was the son of a Somali refugee (chain migration!)

Vermont: “Man” attacks elderly woman with machete at hotel for homeless

I saw the story yesterday and am looking around this morning for any news about the “man” (the alleged attacker) who happens to have a Muslim name and looks like he might be Somali.  I’m not seeing anything yet. Is he a refugee, an illegal alien, an asylum seeker, a diversity visa lottery winner, what? … Continue reading Vermont: “Man” attacks elderly woman with machete at hotel for homeless

Winooski, Vermont: Somali boy drowns, police criticized for poor communication with family

The refugee family had been in the US for a  year, but apparently still had poor English language skills. I’m posting this story just so readers in present and future ‘welcoming’ towns in America know what they have to get ready for—the cost of interpretation services. And, I think this is being set up as … Continue reading Winooski, Vermont: Somali boy drowns, police criticized for poor communication with family

Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont wants more money for refugees

That is nothing new.  Leahy has been a longtime advocate of the US Refugee Admissions Program, but what interested me was  his remark that local communities needed more money to support refugees, and references Rutland. But, wait, Rutland mayor Christopher Louras was just in upstate New York telling those citizens that refugees revitalize and bring … Continue reading Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont wants more money for refugees

News from Vermont says refugee program put on hold, not clear if it is just for Vermont

Update September 2: Vermont Digger tells us the original story was taken down and that there is no truth to any of it.  Rutland is still a target site. There is breaking news in Vermont that the controversial resettlement of 100 Syrian Muslims to Rutland has stalled in Washington. But, local reports say that US … Continue reading News from Vermont says refugee program put on hold, not clear if it is just for Vermont
