Walker at ‘Limits to Growth’ says refugee program dangerous to women

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 20, 2016

rape refugees WalkerBrenda Walker sent testimony to the US State Department by the deadline yesterday and then posted it here at her excellent blog, Limits to Growth.

She says, “Washington’s refugee rescue project has gone from an expensive do-gooder welfare program to a dangerous national security threat,” and goes on to urge readers to look at Europe to understand what is coming our way.

“Europe shows the horror Washington is rushing willy-nilly to imitate. For those of us who value women’s rights and safety, the mass sexual attacks that occurred on New Years in Cologne and other cities were a reminder of how bad Muslim diversity can be. On February 15, the AP reported that of the 73 suspects arrested thus far out of more than a thousand criminal complaints, the “overwhelming majority” were refugees, according to Cologne prosecutor Ulrich Bremer.”

Go to Limits to Growth for her detailed testimony to the State Department which includes extensive linked information to back up what she says.

Migrants burn down refugee center on Lampedusa (thank you Pope Francis)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 20, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…..

African migrants claiming to be asylum seekers (they are not, they are economic migrants and criminals) set fire to a refugee center on the Italian island of Lampedusa earlier this week (Hat tip: Pamela Geller).

 

pope on Lampedusa

Pope Francis went to the Italian island of Lampedusa in July 2013 and blessed the migrants while lecturing the Italians to be more welcoming! Migrants are trying to find “serenity and peace” said the pontiff. https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2013/07/09/pope-lectures-on-lampedusa/

 

Breitbart:

A group of Tunisian migrants set fire to the main pavilion in a Lampedusa refugee welcome center Tuesday night, causing severe damage, after learning they would be repatriated to their home country, according to reports. [They were determined to not be legitimate refugees.—ed]

The fire enveloped the first aid and reception center of Imbriacola in Lampedusa, which presently houses some 530 asylum-seekers, though no injuries have been reported. This is not the first time that migrants have set the pavilion ablaze. Similar acts of arson occurred in 2009 and then in 2011.

After hours battling the fire, which was set around 10:30 pm, teams of firefighters stationed on the island were finally able to get the blaze under control in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

[….]

Reports suggest that in recent weeks tensions had already been growing inside the Lampedusa welcome center, linked to the refusal by a group of African migrants, mainly from Eritrea and Yemen, to submit to identification and registration procedures including the taking of fingerprints.

More here.

When is the last time you have seen news like this at any mainstream media outlet or on cable news?  One day America will wake up to the fact that Europe is lost and they will wonder how that happened so quickly.  It hasn’t been that quick!  We have reported on the invasion for many years now and chronicled the inability (unwillingness) of European leaders to stop it!

Somalis carrying millions of dollars out of US in suitcases; are welfare benefits going to Somalia?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 18, 2016

See this story about investigations underway in Seattle where Somalis are carrying American dollars back to Africa (which is legal, but questionable under the circumstances described in the story from King 5).

Sea-tac

Are these your tax dollars flying from Sea-Tac to Somalia?

Here is the first question that popped into my head when I read this story:

So, if Somalis can travel back and forth to Somalia safely (carrying suitcases stuffed with American dollars that will be lost to the US economy), then doesn’t that mean that Somalia is safe enough and we no longer need to be resettling Somalis at the rate of 750 a month into your towns and cities!

Read this incredible story!  Here are just a few snips:

Travelers pulling suitcases full of cash started showing up at Sea-Tac Airport last year holding tickets for flights headed out of the United States.

Transporting large amounts of cash overseas isn’t illegal. But it was who was carrying the money … and where it was going that caught the attention of security officials.

[….]

The people carrying the cash didn’t hide the fact from Customs. Just the opposite, they reported it. Anyone traveling out of the United States is required to declare any amount over $10,000 and fill out a one-page federal form.

These reports are what caught the attention of terrorism investigators in Seattle.

The thing was the amount, the staggering amount,” said Glenn Kerns, who was assigned to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) at the time.

The couriers were working for Seattle-area hawalas – businesses that derive their name from the Arabic word for “transfer.” Hawalas are part of a traditional system of informal banking in Muslim communities.

[….]

Kerns said the first cash shipment rolled through Sea-Tac early last year. A man carrying $750,000 in cash told Customs officials he was transporting the money overseas. Over the next several months, couriers carrying as much as $2 million boarded commercial flights at Sea-Tac.

“One hawala – Seattle hawala – sent out $20 million last year,” said Kerns.

[….]

Kerns was a Seattle police officer who retired last December after serving 14 years on the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force.

He uncovered something suspicious when he analyzed financial records that the hawalas are required file with the Washington Department of Financial Institutions.

He researched the names of the ten clients who transferred the most money through hawalas last year.

“All ten of them were on welfare benefits. DSHS benefits,” said Kerns. “It’s fraud. Straight up fraud – every one of them.”

Continue reading here.

I’ll bet a buck that most of the money in those suitcases is your money from those welfare benefits!

These Palestinians are illegal alien criminals, not heroes for trekking across the world to get here

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 18, 2016

There is so much I want to say about this Washington Times story, but my posting queue is so long and I am so far behind.

Remember this basic concept as you read this story.  LEGITIMATE asylum seekers are to ask for protection in the first safe country in which they arrive—they are nothing more than illegal alien criminals when they use smugglers to get them through 7 safe countries before they arrive at the US border and ask for asylum (refugee) status.

The Palestinian men highlighted in this story clearly had money and were not going to be patient to wait in line to be processed as legitimate refugees.

Mounis Hammouda

New American Palestinian Mounis Hammouda

They were simply shopping for the best deal (and had money to help them) as they left Gaza and passed through Egypt, Turkey, Cyprus, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Honduras, and Mexico to arrive on the Arizona border.

Here is just a bit of the story, you need to read it all (if you can stand the Washington Times pop-ups and other ads):

 

FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) – Mounis Hammouda and Hisham Shaban were stranded in Honduras, penniless after being ripped off by a smuggler who was supposed to get them to Mexico so that they could arrive at their final destination, the United States.

The Palestinian men had traveled across the world to escape bloodshed and torture in their homeland, and desperately phoned a friend in Canada to wire them money so they could finish their trek.

[….]

Some migrants cross into the U.S. illegally; others, like Hammouda and Shaban, turn themselves claiming asylum. They were among nearly 42,000 people to seek asylum in 2014 in the U.S., a more than 20 percent increase from 2010.

Immigrants claim asylum because they believe they will face persecution or torture in their homeland.

They can stay in the U.S. if an asylum officer and immigration judge determine that such a fear exists. Many are detained during this process, but some are granted bail while their request moves through the immigration court system, which can take years.

As you watch what is happening in Europe with hundreds of thousands of migrants arriving and asking for asylum, keep in mind this is happening at our borders too (just on a smaller scale so far)!  Once granted asylum, these illegal aliens are then eligible just like refugees for all of our welfare benefits, for permission to work and to ultimately become a US citizen.

Check out this other story this morning (hat tip: Joanne): Smugglers made $5 billion in 2015 moving supposed ‘refugees’ around the world.

African migrants now launching from Egypt

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

I wasn’t going to bother posting this one more story about hundreds of refugees stranded in the Mediterranean and being rescued by the Italian coast guard (so what else is new!), but then I saw this particular group launched, not from the usual lawless Libya (thank Hillary), but from Egypt.

Why didn’t Egypt’s military government stop the launch, heck, you could hardly hide boats big enough to carry hundreds?

From DNA India:

Italy rescue

Italian navy or coastguard (reports vary) ferry mostly Africans to Italy. Why not ferry them right back to Egypt! This story says they rescued 1,000 illegal aliens in the last week alone. http://www.voanews.com/content/thousand-refugees-migrants-rescuedi-italy-united-nations-reports/3329517.html

Hundreds of refugees were brought to Italy on Friday having been rescued from the sea over the past day, however the majority were not Syrian, as previously reported, but came from a variety of countries, officials said.

The Italian coast guard, which orchestrated various rescue missions on Thursday, initially said most of the new arrivals appeared to be from Syria — a sign that Middle East refugees were shifting their route into Europe away from Greece.

However, further checks showed that while there probably were Syrians and Iraqis on board two rescued boats, there were also a large number of Egyptians, Somalis and Eritrean. In all, there were just over 800 people aboard the two vessels.

“The majority are not from Syria,” said Carlotta Sami, a spokeswoman with the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR, after a first group of 340 people were brought ashore.

She confirmed initial reports that the two boats had set sail from Egypt rather than Libya, which is the usual staging post used by people smugglers looking to move refugees into Europe from north Africa.

The story goes on to report that many were unaccompanied teenagers.

It seems all of Africa is going to be in Europe someday because there appears to be no will on the part of most Europeans to stop it.

Recently someone told me they had a friend in the travel business who was telling clients to see Europe NOW before it is completely colonized.

One more Somali terror trial underway in Somali capital—Minneapolis

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 13, 2016

Ho hum!  Move along, nothing to see, just some rootless naive young men who want to create a caliphate.  But, these are young men you raised with your tax dollars and who were given a good education and every opportunity to make something of themselves. Instead they chose the call of Allah to wage jihad and go kill some infidels.

somali defendent

The latest batch of Somali refugee defendants. Trial is expected to last a month. Lucky taxpayers! We paid for their resettlement and we get to pay for their trial and incarceration! Wow! What a deal!

By the way, this is getting so wearisome, but feel it’s my duty to keep our archives up to date and that is why I’m posting it!

From NBC News:

Federal prosecutors on Wednesday opened their case against three Minneapolis men accused of plotting to help ISIS, a trial that could offer a rare look at how impressionable young Americans succumb to the the terror group’s appeal.

The defendants, from the city’s large Somali community, are among dozens of native-born Americans who have been charged with supporting ISIS, a fraction of whom have taken their cases to trial. Six other connected to the Minneapolis case have already pleaded guilty, and one reportedly fled the United States and made it to Syria, where many Western recruits aspire to join the fight against Bashar Assad’s regime.

The men on trial — Mohammed Farah, Abdirahman Daud and Guled Omar, all in their early 20s — say they are innocent of charges they conspired to provide material support to ISIS and commit murder abroad. During jury selection this week, some family members complained the defendants were not getting a fair trial, according to NBC affiliate KARE. One tried to have his lawyer removed, but the judge would not let that happen.

Opening statements began Wednesday, with the government going first. The trial, expected to last about a month, is expected to reveal some of the motivations and recruitment techniques behind one of the most troubling aspects of ISIS’ rise as a global terror threat: the growing list of Americans who seek to join or act on its behalf.

A 2015 study of those arrested for supporting ISIS found that they tend to be young, American-born and drawn more to the idea of an Islamic caliphate than a desire to commit terrorist acts in the United States. [At least that is what they want you to think!—ed]

[….]

Minnesota’s Somali communities are one of the centers of such activity, authorities say.

More here.

If your community is about to become a new “welcoming” resettlement sight, look what you have to look forward to!

We are admitting over 700 Somalis a month to the US right now and that number is expected to rise if Kenya goes through with closing the massive Somali camps in that country.

Major US refugee contractor, International Rescue Committee, embroiled in corruption probe

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 12, 2016

Update May 13th: Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily has much more on this probe.

Gee, I wonder if this is why its CEO David Miliband (a Brit!) has his toe back in UK political waters (here two days ago!). Is he about to jump ship and go home?

Miliband and Hillary 'vibrant'

Miliband says he loves her smile!

I haven’t seen this story yet in the American press, seems we always have to depend on the British press to inform us of unsavory news involving refugees and the contractors the federal government hires to take care of them.

Thanks to reader Ann for sending this story from The Telegraph (emphasis is mine):

The United States is investigating an international aid group headed by David Miliband over allegations of corruption in projects intended to help Syrian civilians and refugees.

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) is one of three international groups to have had millions of pounds in funding withdrawn over alleged bid-rigging and bribery.

Mr Miliband, a former foreign secretary, was appointed president and chief executive of the organisation in 2013, following his exit from Westminster politics.

David Miliband and Soros

Miliband/IRC awards George Soros for his work!

USAID’s Office of the Inspector General confirmed on Friday that 14 entities and individuals had been suspended as part of a “complex investigation into cross-border aid programs”.

This includes International Medical Corps, one of the largest providers of medical aid to Syrians, and GOAL, an Irish NGO.

Allegations relate to the organisations systematically overpaying for goods in Turkey. A senior USAID official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said private Turkish companies had sold cut-rate blankets and other basic materials at vastly inflated prices and pocketed the difference.

[….]

“What became clear in the course of this investigation was this was a pretty sophisticated operation,” the USAID official said.

[….]

The IRC, which has an annual budget of £350 million,*** relies heavily on government funding from Britain and the United States.

An IRC spokesman told The Times: “We are fully engaged and working with USAID on this issue.”

miliband and Obama

Miliband and Obama are on the same page—bring in the Muslim refugees! Except Obama isn’t going fast enough for Miliband.

Two IRC staff members were dismissed in January after it was found that they had accepted money from suppliers in return for awarding them contracts.

Continue reading where we learn that the Irish aid agency gets US dollars too!

Just a reminder that David Miliband was one of the first contractor CEOs to call for Obama to admit 65,000 Syrians by the end of his term.  Miliband later upped that number to 100,000.  See our huge archive on Miliband by clicking here.

And, if these contractor names have you confused, it is the IRC that is opening an office to bring Syrians to Missoula, MT (among other places).

***Let’s talk about their money for a minute!

Go to the most recent Form 990 for the IRC by clicking here.

Scroll down to page 9 where we learn that the IRC had a revenue stream that year of over a half a billion dollars ($562,021,607) and $378,337,440 came from “government grants.”  That is you—the US taxpayer!

Doing well by doing good…..

And, if you want to really get your blood boiling scroll through a few more pages until you reach the staff salaries where no less than 11 staff people make over $200,000 a year.  Perhaps the most necessary staffer they have right now—-their General Counsel—makes a bit less at $195,427.

Then look at the line for Miliband—-over $300,000 in cash, but it says “annual compensation $600,000.”  What is up with that?  Are they paying his NYC housing on the side somehow?

And, to wrap up with adding more insult to injury—their former CEO George Rupp is still pulling in annual compensation of $338,855 in this Form 990 that ended September 30, 2014.

I wonder what the underlings toiling away in resettlement offices across the US are making? What is Miss Mary going to make in Missoula?

Go here to see where the IRC is placing refugees in the US.  Besides Missoula, MT they have four new offices.

Judge releases Somali ‘asylum seeker’ even though ORR said he was an adult, not a teen

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 6, 2016

Wow! Check out this story from Seattle—first, because it gives us a few clues about Unaccompanied Alien Minors, not all from Central America and Mexico, who know how to game the system, and secondly because here we see that the Office of Refugee Resettlement is trying to ferret out frauds among the ‘children’ only to be thwarted by a judge.

Judge Pechman

The lower court judge ruled and Judge Pechman affirmed that a scientific bone density scan couldn’t be used to show that the illegal alien Somali was a teen or not. Photo: https://vimeo.com/77379343

Gosh, does this mean the Somali, who could be an adult, will be sent back to hang out in high school?

Sure looks like he was returned to foster care (and presumably high school) according to another article at The Seattle Times.

Message to all young men from around the world who want to break into America, get rid of your passports and any other identification before you arrive at the border and then lie, lie, lie!

From the Seattle Globalist:

A judge affirmed a ruling this week that federal immigration officials unlawfully used a dental exam to determine that a teenaged Somali asylum seeker was an adult, and wrongly detained him in the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma.

The teenager, identified in court documents by his initials B.I.C., had entered the United States in August 2015 and applied for asylum as a minor. He was issued a special immigrant juvenile visa and sent to live with a foster mother in Portland. However, in December the Office of Refugee Resettlement said that based on a dental bone scan, they no longer believed that he was a minor.

The teenager had traveled through South and Central America in order to reach the United States, and had destroyed his identification documents so he would not get sent back to Somalia, according to the court filings, so he had no documentation for his age. [So, he committed fraud by destroying his ID papers!—ed]

With the dental bone scan as the only piece of evidence that he was an adult, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested the teenager from his high school near Portland and took him to the Northwest Detention Center in December.

He was released after two months, after the Northwest Immigrants Rights Project filed a suit seeking the teenager’s release. Chief Magistrate Judge James Donahue ruled that using a bone density scan as the sole piece of evidence of someone’s age violates federal law and that the teenager should be freed.

Donahue’s recommendation was adopted this week by U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman, who also threw out ORR’s determination that he was an adult when he was first taken into custody.

According to The Seattle Times story he will be released from foster care when he turns 18 (whenever that is, or was), but what next? Does he just disappear into the American Somali community? Or, will the Northwest Immigrants Rights Project take responsibility for him? (surely not!)  Or, better still, maybe the good judge will take him in!

New report from CIS: Obama’s illegal aliens disguised as refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 2, 2016

Here (below) is the press release from the Center for Immigration Studies this morning.  In fact this effort to expand the definition of who is a refugee is going on world wide as so-called ‘Unaccompanied Alien Children’ (largely teenage boys) are also flooding into Europe. It is not a coincidence!

Teenage boys Texas

Unaccompanied Alien Children arrive at US border in 2014 (many more have come since then). http://www.alipac.us/f12/90-000-illegal-alien-children-could-caught-trying-cross-us-border-2014-a-303995/

For nearly 9 years I’ve watched the definition of the word ‘refugee’ be stretched like a rubber band until now most in the media think that anyone on the move for any reason is a refugee!

But, that is exactly what the No-Borders gang is pushing for.  When you read this remember that a legitimate refugee must prove that he/she has been persecuted for one of several reasons (such as race, religion, political persuasion).

Someone running from crime and wanting a better life does NOT a refugee make!

(emphasis below is mine)

 

WASHINGTON, DC (May 2, 2016) — The Center for Immigration Studies has released a new report, “Welcoming Unaccompanied Alien Children to the United States”, analyzing the Obama administration’s persistent efforts to relocate the children of Central American illegal aliens to the United States. The report is online at http://cis.org/Welcoming-Unaccompanied-Alien-Children-to-the-United-States.

When the illegal flow of mostly teen-age boys from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador across the border reached record levels in 2014, the administration at first tried to arrange for them to stay by presenting them as victims of trafficking. But for the immigration benefits of being trafficked to apply, there must be coercion and exploitation; this was not the case.

Next, the administration established the Central American Minors Refugee/Parole Program, to fly the young people directly to the United States. But this program requires that the family members to whom the children are delivered have some form of legal status in the U.S. Because the majority of the minors’ family members in the U.S. are illegal immigrants, the program has not been widely used.

Thus the latest initiative: a new “family reunification program” specifically designed for illegal aliens and their children. In collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the administration is planning to enable illegal aliens to have their children brought to them in the U.S., with the minors labelled as “refugees.” However, by the UN’s own admission most of these children do not qualify as refugees.

The cost to American taxpayers of reuniting illegal aliens with the children they left behind is substantial. The FY 2017 budget request for the Unaccompanied Children (UC) program totals $1.321 billion, making the cost for one UAC likely to be more than $17,000. This is more than double the cost per UAC in 2010.

Nayla Rush, a senior researcher at the Center and author of the report, writes: “We can empathize with children wishing to reunite with family members who make it to the United States before them. … We can also, however, question this administration’s policies and motives and wonder if it is in the best interest of the American people to welcome these children here. … We might even call this program what it really is: a family reunification program specially crafted for illegal aliens and their children under the cover of refugee resettlement.”

North Dakota: Somali sexual assault case delayed, waiting for mental health report

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 25, 2016

Readers, I apologize, I am so behind. I especially apologize to all who are sending me great story ideas.  There are dozens and dozens of them that I could post, but not enough hours in the day.  This morning I spent way too much time telling the story of my attendance at a Trump rally, here, so am going to try really hard now to post a lot of my refugee backlog quickly (Ha! famous last words).

ND rapist

Abdulrahman Ibrahim Ali

Since we have been mentioning the Dakotas recently (South Dakota, here) this story about a possibly mentally impaired Somali caught my attention.

We hear about thorough screening all the time, are they screening out the mentally ‘challenged?’  Apparently not!

From Inforum.com news:

FARGO – A Fargo man charged late last year with sexually assaulting a Mapleton store clerk appeared Wednesday, April 13, in Cass County District Court, but his case appears to be stalled for now as attorneys wait for a mental health exam.

Abdulrahman Ibrahim Ali, 36, faces charges of gross sexual imposition, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and terrorizing stemming from an incident in December at Gordy’s Travel Plaza in Mapleton. The most serious charge, Class AA felony gross sexual imposition, could carry a lifetime prison term if Ali were convicted.

According to this report, he told the victim as he assaulted her that she was his “wife.”  Was he nuts or behaving in a manner consistent with Islamic teaching by proclaiming that she was his wife and therefore he could do this to her—allegedly beat her and sexually assault her.

Brandborg (Ali’s attorney) did not specify what he was waiting for, but Judge Tom Olson in January ordered a mental health evaluation for Ali, who communicated in court Wednesday through an interpreter.

At one point Wednesday, Ali said he was having problems at the Cass County Jail and that he was taking medication but was not sleeping. [Note to local and state taxpayers—you are footing the bill for refugee criminals, not the US State Department or the contractors that send them to your towns.—ed]

Mental evaluations are used in criminal cases to assess whether a defendant is unable to assist in his own defense or was mentally ill or deficient at the time of the alleged crime. Either situation can prevent a defendant from standing trial.

Ali’s family has said he suffers from biploar disorder and that minor criminal charges against him in Ohio and Minnesota were dismissed on mental illness grounds.
