Diversity Visa Lottery: LEGAL immigration program allows 50,000 into US each year because we don’t have enough diversity!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 21, 2015

We have written a little bit over the years about the truly outrageous ‘Diversity Visa Lottery,’ sometimes referred to as the ‘Green card lottery.’

I’m writing about it now so that our many new readers understand that it isn’t just the Refugee Admissions Program that is allowing immigrants into the US who could potentially threaten our security in addition to competing with Americans for limited job opportunities.

Obama with Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. “The Green Card Lottery has really been the African Green Card Lottery.” In 2009 Lee attempted to change the Diversity lottery by adding another 50,000 which would have brought 100,000 annual “winners” to America. http://newafricanmagazine.com/will-green-card-lottery-get-red-card/

The program, like the Refugee resettlement program, is the brainchild of Senator Ted Kennedy and was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush in 1990.

Beginning in 1996 we began offering 50,000 slots (it can be confusing because some reports say 55,000) for legal immigration to the US in a lottery system that is shocking when you begin to examine it.   It’s primary purpose is to increase our diversity!

We sure did increase our diversity as 1 million LEGAL immigrants entered the US in the last 20 years as a result of the Kennedy/Bush lottery.

The lottery aims to diversify the immigrant population in the United States, by selecting applicants mostly from countries with low rates of immigration to the United States in the previous five years.

Unsuccessful efforts have been made in recent years to kill it, but among the programs great supporters are the very same federal refugee resettlement contractors we write about every day.  Every time Congress has advanced bills to cut the lottery or cut its funding, who pops up to defend it?  The VOLAGS!

One would think they might be concerned about increasing competition from the lottery winners for the scarce jobs that their refugees desperately need!  Guess not!

If you would like to check it out yourselves, just type in one of the contractor’s names along with ‘diversity visa lottery’ and you will get lots of testimony and lots of lobbying by the contractors to keep the lottery alive.

New York Uzbek’s largely here thanks to Diversity Visa Lottery

What got me thinking about it this morning was a New York Times piece about ten days ago entitled:

Accusations of Terrorism Worry Brooklyn’s Uzbek Community

We learned that a large number of New York City’s Uzbek (mostly Muslim) immigrants came in through the lottery.  However, we have also admitted Uzbek’s as refugees and have had some terror busts involving those.  Here is one in Idaho.

Immigrants from Uzbekistan have been arriving in New York with help from a diversity visa lottery program, which the United States government created in 1990 to foster immigration from countries with previously low rates. The State Department issues 55,000 green cards every year through its diversity visa program and for the 2014-15 year, 4,368 were allotted to Uzbek lottery winners, the department said.  [It was 5,101 in 2013, see below—-ed]

In my quick search I couldn’t find the 2014 “winners,” but here are the 2013 lucky ducks!   I’ve selected some of the countries (those with the largest number of winners) from which “enrichment” has arrived on our shores.  (See this commentary about the US Conference of Catholic Bishops going to bat for the lottery in Congressional testimony).  Remember this line when you look at the list!

….a diverse pool of immigrants makes our nation a culturally richer place.  [Who says so?—ed]

Selected entrants—2013

Here (and below) are the largest ethnic groups given green cards after winning the lottery in 2013:

Africa:

Algeria (2,161)

Cameroon (3,858)

DR Congo (3,924)

Egypt (5,015)

Ethiopia (4,910)

Ghana (5,105)

Kenya (4,410)

Morocco (2,068)

Nigeria (6,218)

Sierra Leone (2,516)

Togo (1,065)

Asia:

Iran (6,029)

Nepal (4,370)

Europe:

Albania (1,520)

Armenia (1,174)

Belarus (1,195)

Bulgaria (1,299)

Poland (2,038)

Russia (2,846)

Turkey (1,807)

Ukraine (6,424)

Uzbekistan (5,101)

The next time you hear an elected official mouth this foolish line know that he or she doesn’t know what the heck they are talking about!

I’m o.k. with legal immigration, but it is illegal immigration I have a problem with!

Communist icon Angela Davis: “The refugee movement is THE movement of the 21st century”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 19, 2015

That’s what we learn at OccupyMN’s facebook page thanks to reader Joanne.

“Davis was arrested, charged, tried, and acquitted of conspiracy in the 1970 armed take-over of a Marin County courtroom, in which four persons died.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela_Davis

 

Former Communist Party USA President Angela Davis (didn’t you think she might be dead by now) is interviewed in Germany with African asylum seekers demanding their rights.

Trying to stay relevant?

You can watch her here as she gives community organizing tips to the Africans.

For our many new readers we try to write as often as possible about the ‘Invasion of Europe’ because Western Civilization is being undermined there daily with the arrival of the boat migrants from North Africa and the complete lack of will by most European leaders to do what they must do—stop the boats before they launch from Libya and other hell holes in Africa and the Middle East.

The United States won’t be far behind Europe if we don’t get our LEGAL and illegal immigration under control soon!

One commenter to the facebook page says, “Don’t abandon prison reform for the more glamorous refugee situation. Prison reform is vital.”

ISIS making millions trafficking ‘refugees’ to Europe from Libya

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2015

Obama and his girls (Hillary, Susan Rice and Samantha Power) sure blundered when they joined the pack to bring down Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

I wonder if the media will one day point a finger at this bunch for destabilizing North Africa just as they do now at George W. Bush for bringing down Saddam Hussein and destabilizing Iraq (I won’t hold my breath).

Here Time magazine reports that trafficking in migrants is part of the new business model used by ISIS to fund their operations.

Migrants pay thousands of dollars to armed groups in Africa and the Middle East on their journey to Europe.

Illegal migrants wait to be rescued off Malta earlier this month.

The movement of migrants across the Middle East and Africa towards Europe has generated up to $323 million for the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) and other jihadist groups, a new report has revealed.

Many of the migrants embark from Libya on unseaworthy boats which have foundered with thousands drowning and thousands being rescued by European navies. At least 170,000 refugees made the sea journey last year, and that number looks likely to increase this year, according to the European Union’s border-surveillance organization Frontex.

European Union and African officials are scrambling to find ways to stop the migration. On Wednesday the Guardian revealed a 19-page E.U. strategy report to crack down on the smugglers, which included air strikes on boats and possibly the use of troops in Libya.

But while E.U. officials anguish over the plight of people crossing the Mediterranean to get to Europe, the migration has proved an invaluable business opportunity for groups like ISIS. So valuable that international crime experts believe ISIS might have launched some attacks specifically in order to drive people to flee, and then profit from their flight.

Read more here.

Just a reminder!  US readers this affects you!

We are bringing some of those illegal boat people to America as REFUGEES and sending them to your towns and cities.   I just checked State Department data bases and see that as of April 30th we had admitted 331 of Malta’s illegal aliens to the US in 300 refugee cases this fiscal year alone.  That means that the majority coming to America are not in family groups and are most likely single young men.

We told you here that some aliens from Malta ended up in South Carolina.

Go here for our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series and here for our extensive Malta archive.

Small EU countries: Don’t shove migrants down our throats…..

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 11, 2015

…..when you ‘welcomed’ them to Europe’s shores in the first place!

More ‘Invasion of Europe’ news…..

 

Europe here we come! Migrants rescued off Italy. Don’t they look like an invading army? http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/mediterranean-migrant-crisis-baby-girl-born-italian-navy-ship-nearly-7000-rescued-one-weekend-1499691

 

The European Union is attempting to force a quota system on all EU countries demanding that everyone take a share of the tens of thousands of mostly African and Middle Eastern migrants flowing in to border countries like Italy, Malta and Greece.

Some countries are having none of it!

From the Associated Press via Yahoo.news:

BRUSSELS (AP) — European Union plans to introduce a quota system obliging countries to share the burden of settling refugees unraveled Friday as member nations began rejecting the scheme.

Hungary, Slovakia and Estonia are among those to publicly object to a quota system, which would require unanimous agreement among the 28 EU nations.

Hold on a minute! Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says its “crazy” that you let them in and now we (who didn’t want them let in) are expected to take them!

“This is not solidarity. It is an unfair, unrighteous and dishonorable proposal which we cannot accept,” Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on state radio. “It is a crazy idea for someone to let refugees into their own country, not defend their borders, and then say: ‘Now I will distribute them among you, who did not want to let anyone in.'”

In a statement to The Associated Press, Slovakia’s interior ministry said that it “currently refuses binding quotas on migrants.” Estonia said it prefers voluntary relocation and resettlement for refugees.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel acknowledged that it will be “hard work” to put a quota system in place but said there was “a large group of countries” in favor. Merkel said she was “convinced that we will not be able to do without a solution in solidarity in Europe.”

Germany, along with Sweden and France, is among a handful of countries accepting refugees. [Really dumb!—ed]

The EU’s executive Commission was to propose the plan next Wednesday as part of a strategy to help frontline countries Italy, Greece and Malta cope with thousands of migrants.

There is only one solution to stop the invasion—-turn the boats back to the North African coast as Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott recommends, here.

Your tax dollars raise terrorists as one more refugee wages Jihad

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 7, 2015

We haven’t written about the very brave American hero Pamela Geller and what happened in Garland, Texas, when she and other organizers of a ‘draw Muhammad’ contest flushed out a pair of jihadists living in our midst, because you would have to be living under a rock to have missed the news.

One more recipient of American generosity and good will! I bet you will never see the mainstream media mention the ‘R’ word (refugee) when reporting on Muhammed Hassan (aka Miski)

However, it now appears that another of the Somali “youths” you raised to adulthood with your tax dollars is at the center of the attack.

Remember readers that Somalis do not “find their way” to America.  The vast majority of Somalis in the US came (and continue to come!) through the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program.  You feed them, you house them, you give them medical care and you educate them!

Minnesota, where Muhammed Hassan is from, is Somali-central having received 10,000 Somali refugees in ten years directly from Africa and elsewhere around the world thanks to ‘Christian’ resettlement contractors.   (We are not counting the ‘secondary migrants’ who moved to Minnesota after being resettled somewhere else in the US and then move to join their kind of people in MN).

In the first six months of FY2015 we have admitted 4,425 Somalis to the US. Why are we bringing in any?

From ABC News:

A mysterious ISIS recruiter known online as “Miski” was in close and repeated social media contact with Elton Simpson for months before the Sunday attack in Garland, Texas, an ABC News investigation has found.

Miski is well known to FBI officials who say his real name is Muhammed Hassan, a fugitive since 2009 when he fled Minneapolis as a teenager to join terror groups in Africa.

Speaking in late April about the forthcoming Prophet Mohammad cartoon contest – the one targeted in Gardner Sunday – would-be shooter Simpson tweeted “When will they ever learn?”

A few minutes later Miski responded, “Where are the warriors of this Ummah [community]?” And then, “The brothers from the Charlie Hebdo attack did their part. It’s time for brothers in the #US to do their part.”

[….]

Since leaving the country in 2009, Miski has popped up repeatedly online as a vocal proponent of jihad. Each time Twitter shuts down his account, he simply returns in under a slightly different username and quickly reconnects with his supporters and potential recruits.

“His influence is quite extensive,” David Ibsen, Executive Director of the Counter Extremism Project, told ABC News. “He’s known as one of the go-to individuals online who individuals who want more information about how to travel to ISIS-controlled territory, who want information about what these radical groups are doing, they go to him.”

For new readers, we first began following the ‘missing Somali youth’ news way back in 2008, here.

We must demand a moratorium on the resettlement of Muslims from anywhere in the world—from Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Burma, Uzbekistan and Syria to start with—if we want to have any hope of surviving!  Let the rich Arab countries take them!

UK Home Secretary Theresa May defies EU demand to open Britain to more migrants

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 6, 2015

Europe is sinking under the weight of tens of thousands of migrants (illegal aliens) crossing the Mediterranean Sea and expecting to be granted asylum in Europe.  Great Britain is a plum designation for many.

As we noted previously, the only way to stem the invader tide is to stop the boats before they launch from the North African coast, and here May says the same thing.

Will this tough policy stand if “Red Ed” becomes prime minister in UK elections tomorrow?

(See what we said last month about “Red Ed” and his brother David Miliband helping to destroy the UK with immigration.)

From the Daily Mail:

Theresa May has rejected demands from Brussels for Britain to take a ‘quota’ of the migrants pouring into Europe across the Mediterranean.

Home Secretary May: these are not refugees, they have paid human traffickers to get them to Europe.

The Royal Navy yesterday finally joined the rescue operation by deploying a warship and three helicopters to help save people making the perilous journey to Italy.

But the Home Secretary told the Mail any decision to accept migrants should be on a voluntary basis rather than one ordered by the EU.

[….]

Mrs May disputed the idea that all the migrants were refugees fleeing conflict zones, arguing instead that many had paid criminal syndicates.

[….]

Jean-Claude Juncker, who heads the European Commission, has suggested that unless Europe’s leaders decide to ‘open the door’, the migrants could try to ‘break in through the window’.  [So the solution is to just open the door to one and all?—ed]

Brussels is arguing that, in view of the mass drownings, every country should take a fixed share of migrants. But, following Mr Juncker’s demand, Mrs May told the Mail last Thursday: ‘Any decisions should be on a voluntary basis. Often, the issue is perceived as being people who are refugees from Syria.

‘Those coming across the Med – they are coming from countries such as Senegal, Eritrea, Sudan.

‘Many will have paid organised crime groups to get them through. It is a different sort of issue from Syrian refugees.

‘If we are really going to stop the people putting their lives in danger by crossing the Med, we need to stop them starting their journey in the first place.’

Europe must follow Australian model (turn back the boats) or die!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 4, 2015

It is so clear to anyone with a brain, that the only way to stop the ‘Invasion of Europe’ from North Africa is to stop the boats before they even launch from Libya and other ports in North Africa.

Where is America’s Tony Abbott?

The UNHCR could then care for the so-called asylum seekers in camps in Africa.

But, the European Union is saying NO WAY!  So, I guess they will all go down as the European ship sinks!

From the Malta Independent:

The European Union will not be adopting Australia’s migration methods despite Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s claim that some Europeans are seeking policy advice.

The EU’s executive Commission says Canberra does not respect the international standard on protecting refugees of “non-refoulement,” which is a U.N. principle prohibiting expulsion to a country where they could face violence or prison.

Commission migration spokeswoman Natasha Bertaud said Monday that the EU “applies the principle of non-refoulement — we have no intention of changing this — so of course the Australian model can never be a model for us.”

Australia’s migration model was widely cited in debate at the European Parliament last week, as the EU struggles to cope with thousands of migrants seeking to enter Europe via Libya.

Read it all here.

See our ‘Invasion of Europe‘ series here, and check out how Australia is saving migrants’ lives (and discouraging more illegal migration) by turning boats back to the countries from which they launched (Australia category, here).

And, remember American readers, this is about you too as we are taking some of Malta’s illegal aliens and dropping them into your towns (most recently South Carolina, here).

That practice was begun, illegally I contend, by the Bush Administration.

St. Cloud, MN letter-to-the-editor about Somali constitution brings firestorm of comments

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 3, 2015

The debate we helped start here a little over a week ago continues in St. Cloud, Minnesota as a letter writer says Somalis must choose between Somalia’s constitution based entirely on sharia-law and the US Constitution.

Somalis in Minnesota: Time to choose, sharia law or US Constitution? Photo at MN Historical Society

Here is Willmar resident Bob Enos this past Thursday.  As of this minute (on Sunday morning) there are 153 comments!  You should get in on the action, submit a comment and continue to educate the readers of the St. Cloud Times!

Thank you for your coverage of Ann Corcoran’s recent visit to St. Cloud concerning Somali immigration. With regard to Islamic Sharia law, if your fact-checkers read the Provisional Constitution of Somalia, here is what they would know.

Article 2 – “Islam is the religion of the State. … No other religion than Islam can be propagated in the country. … No law can be enacted that is not compliant with the general principles and objectives of Shari’ah.”

Article 8(3) states: “A person who is a Somali citizen cannot be deprived of Somali citizenship, even if they become a citizen of another country.”

A country’s constitution represents the hopes, dreams, aspirations and expectations of its citizens.

The question to our Somali-American citizens: You’ve sworn allegiance to an Islamic theocratic state and a U.S. secular, democratic state, each founded on diametrically opposed ideals. You can’t believe that both are correct.

You need to make a choice.

Go here and see what all the buzz is about, add some of your own!

For new readers, we have an extensive archive on St. Cloud, here.  Our earliest post (I believe) was this one (in 2008!) written by blog partner, Judy, about Somalis threatening a service dog and his owner at a St. Cloud area school.  The dog-owner subsequently dropped out of the teaching program.

UN wants the West to take in one million refugees over 5 years; Wilders calls it invitation to Jihadist infiltrators

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 28, 2015

Update April 30th:  Two Muslim Congressmen try to block Geert Wilders appearance in America, here.

I’m off again today, this time to DC and, alas, have no time to post much, but wanted to get this excellent article from Fox News posted before I catch the train.   Hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum.

Thank goodness some sane heads are quoted throughout.  Australia’s success in turning back the invaders is mentioned.   And, the only thing missing is any mention of how Libya became a launching pad for the invasion with Hillary’s help.

Fox News:

Geert Wilders: The “Islamicization” of Europe is well underway.

 The humanitarian disaster unfolding on the Mediterranean is likely already providing a “shield” for Islamist terrorists to infiltrate waves of migrants attempting the perilous crossing from North Africa to Europe, terrorism experts and other strategic observers are warning. And they say a UN plan to resettle 1 million refugees in Western nations would turn the situation into a full-blown security crisis.

The exodus now unfolding, as well as the UN call to take in refugees from war-torn Middle Eastern and African nations over the next five years, is providing a “shield for the passage of jihadists to Europe,” said one analyst. Once absorbed into the societies of Europe and other rich countries such as the United States, ISIS operatives would be set to eventually gain all the freedoms of other citizens of those countries – including the freedom to travel, often without having to go through the extra scrutiny involved in obtaining a passport visa.

“ISIS has threatened to [infiltrate the migrants] and German intelligence already said that this is a real threat,” Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders told FoxNews.com from The Netherlands. “An open door policy would – both for the USA and Europe – mean that the threat of Islamists and terrorists entering our countries would increase to a very dangerous level.”

Read it all here.

Just a reminder that the UN High Commissioner for Refugees already has 11,000 Syrian refugees picked out for your home towns.  Tell your Member of Congress and your US Senators—NO resettlement in your town!

Little Mogadishu update: Somali refugee tweeted death threat against US Attorney General

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 26, 2015

Gee, is that Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch he wants to “whack?”

Little Mogadishu is of course Minneapolis!

Mahamed Abukar Said, 19: “Ima whack that us attorney general.” http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/tag/mahamed-abukar-said/

Don’t miss it!  Also, on Friday Rep. Keith Ellison went to the Somali neighborhood to calm the youths! (Here)

I wish I knew all this excitement was going on when I was in the neighborhood on Friday!

This is a story about a friend of the six (latest batch) terrorists charged with planning to join ISIS so they could participate in killing for Allah.   He also tweeted the photo of the FBI’s confidential informant.

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

A man who made death threats on Twitter against federal law enforcement officials in connection with the case against six Minneapolis men accused of trying to join ISIL now faces federal charges of his own.

Mahamed Abukar Said, 19, was charged Friday with two criminal counts for threatening “to assault and murder a federal law enforcement officer.”

According to the criminal complaints, he tweeted a photo of the government’s confidential informant in the case against the six defendants accused of conspiring to join ISIL. He also threatened federal prosecutors with a “massacre,” investigators allege.

Included in the federal complaint were copies of Said’s alleged tweets, including one that said, “Ima whack that us attorney general.”

The criminal complaint said that Said lives in Minneapolis with relatives, “attends school, and is on probationary supervision in Hennepin County for a fifth-degree controlled substance offense.”

Said appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Steven Rau, who signed the complaint, filed and also signed by FBI Special Agent Michael Iverson.

The charges note that in addition to a threat to kill the U.S. Attorney General, Said added, “The Feds are getting two choices. Either they gon free my bros or they gon have a massacre happen then they gon take me too.”

There is more, read it all here.

Wow! Isn’t diversity beautiful!

Wake up Minnesota! You paid to raise this punk and his friends!

Tell the church resettlement contractors to stop bringing refugees like these charmers to the state!  And, everybody reading this should tell your Members of Congress, US Senators, and Presidential candidates to STOP the resettlement of Somalis to America!  They are not our problem and we are presently bringing in between 800 and 900 a MONTH!
