Roanoke, Virginia: Refugee kills one wounds three at manufacturing company

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 25, 2016

No wonder Roanoke isn’t feeling very welcoming toward more refugees (remember this story! ).

Hey, all you big companies looking for cheap refugee labor take note! We bring an awful lot of refugees in to America with mental illnesses.

From WDBJ7 (Hat tip: Suzanne):

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) The man who shot and killed a person and shot three others at FreightCar America has been identified as 53-year-old Getachew Fekede from Kenya.


Police on the scene of this morning’s shooting in Roanoke. Shooter is a refugee former worker at the FreightCar America facility there.

Police say he died from a self-inflicted gunshot would.

Three other employees were shot. One of them has been released from the hospital.

Roanoke police say around 10 rounds were fired from a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun.

Fekede last worked at FreightCar America in March. [They make railroad cars—ed]. He arrived at the building by bicycle, police say.

Fekede came to Virginia in 2011 as part of a refugee program.

No mention of Fekede’s nationality (his resettlement contractor*** would know).  We don’t take Kenyans as refugees, but we take thousands of Somalis and other African migrants (Sudanese, Ethiopians) who have re-located to Kenya.  So keep an eye out for more news about where he is really from and what his religion might be.

Longtime readers may remember the famous failed kidnapping plot in Roanoke in 2009 where several refugees were found guilty of attempting to kidnap one or more prominent women in the town and hold her/them for ransom.

Also we have 2,024 posts in our refugee crimes category, here.

*** Commonwealth Catholic Charities is responsible for refugees resettled in Roanoke.

Where have all the Iraqis gone?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 25, 2016

I was doing some research on West Virginia just now and was interested to see how many Iraqis went to WV (a state that has been able to stay out of the Refugee Admissions Program to any large degree, but is now looking to get in) and so I had a look at the whole country and thought you might be interested in this information.


When this Iraqi refugee terrorist pair was arrested in Kentucky in 2011, the flow of Iraqis slowed dramatically as the feds had to re-screen all of the incoming Iraqis. Their original screening of these two failed miserably.

I went back ten fiscal years and learned that in the last decade we admitted 135,648 Iraqi ‘refugees.’ Of those 63% are Muslims and the remaining 37% represent a whole host of religions (we are cleaning out the country of its minority population!) including Catholics, Christians and Chaldeans.

When I saw the breakdown of the Muslim numbers, it made me laugh.  Who is persecuting who because we have brought in large numbers of the two primary opposing factions!

We admitted:  34,679 Shiites, 48,297 Sunnis, and 2,116 Muslims of unknown orientation.  Are we placing them in the same towns so they can continue their infighting?  Are we placing Iraqi Christians among them? (The resettlement contractors must think that America’s magic melting pot will erase centuries of animosity—it won’t.)

Here is the map from the Refugee Processing Center of where the Iraqis have been placed. (There may be a way to find out which religions you got in your state, but I don’t know how to find that information. Knowing how the VOLAGs operate they probably sent you a smattering of all of them so you might have tensions in your community going forward.)




Alaska got 49 and Hawaii 4 but they didn’t fit on the map. Source Refugee Processing Center


Here are the numbers resettled by fiscal year (again, I did not go back to the first wave of Iraqis who came in the wake of the first George Bush war).  One thing that you will see clearly is that once we get rolling and admit large populations of a particular ethnic group, we don’t stop for years and years (Somalis have been coming for decades).

FY 2007:  1,608  (This is the first year I began writing this blog and I remember well how the VOLAGs and the Open Borders gang were haranguing GWB to open the flood gates for Iraqis which he finally did. They said we broke Iraq so it was our responsibility to resettle vast numbers of their warring factions.)

FY 2008:  13,822

FY 2009:  18,838

FY 2010:  18,016

FY 2011:  9,388 (this dip is due to the discovery of 2 Iraqi Islamic terrorists in Kentucky, so the feds had to re-screen all the incoming Iraqis.)

FY 2012:  12,163

FY 2013: 19,488

FY 2014:  19,769

FY 2015:  12,676

FY 2016:  9,880

Endnote:  LOL! This is how I get off track almost daily, I find something interesting to me and then don’t get to what I planned for the day. But, hopefully this is useful to some of you!

One more thing…. Don’t like what you see?  You only have 14 days (including today) to get a commitment from your member of Congress to DEFUND the Refugee Admissions Program in the lame duck session of Congress!  They won’t care what you think after November 8th!

Houston, TX: Iraqi refugee pleads guilty in ISIS bomb plot (so much for screening!)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 18, 2016

No matter how much the other side yaks about screening, you know (and they know) that there is no way to screen the Islamic terrorist wannabes from the huge flow of Syrians, Iraqis, Somalis, Uzbeks, Burmese Muslims etc. being admitted to the US now at an accelerated pace.


Omar Al Harden planned to blow up two Houston malls including the Galleria. Think how much of your money was already invested in this hater and you likely will pay for 20 years of incarceration.

Here is a (then) teenager we welcomed to America who hates us and planned to kill many of you who shop in Houston area malls. Before being admitted to the US, I bet this punk was asked by some US State Department worker—do you have any animosity toward America and, like any good Muslim, lied!

From CBS News:

HOUSTON — An Iraqi refugee who authorities say wanted to set off bombs at two Houston malls pleaded guilty Monday to trying to help the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan admitted as part of his plea deal that he pledged his loyalty to ISIS in November 2014 and almost immediately trained to use tactical weapons, including an AK-47. He faces up to 20 years in federal prison when he is sentenced Jan. 17 on a charge of attempting to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.


“I want to blow myself up. I want to travel with the Mujahidin. I want to travel to be with those who are against America. I am against America,” Al Hardan wrote, according to KHOU.

More here.

We have 704 previous posts on Iraqi refugees in case anyone wants to write a book someday!

And, by the way, just as I saw the news about Al Harden, I also saw news this morning about our involvement in going after ISIS at Mosul. Using Obama and Hillary’s own logic, isn’t our involvement there going to create more terrorists and probably more quickly than simply slowing the flow of them to America.

Let them fight it out! Let them take care of their own!

FBI says three men planned attack on Somali refugees in Kansas

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 17, 2016

Here is the AP story from Saturday published at the Eagle Tribune.

The timing of the arrest is suspicious (is the FBI helping Hillary again, will she bring it up in the debate on Wednesday as an example of right wing extremism?), but otherwise we will wait and see what comes of  this.


Tyson Foods Garden City, KS: Wherever you have Tyson Foods you will find cheap refugee labor. I didn’t make it to Garden City this summer on my tour of mostly American meatpacking towns, but visited many others with large numbers of Somali and other immigrants fueling ethnic tensions as the US Dept. of State provides refugee labor for BIG MEAT.

For background, you might want to see our archive on Garden City, KS (click here) where Tyson Foods has long been a draw for cheap refugee laborers.  For more information on refugee resettlement in Kansas generally, go here.

One of my all-time favorite posts on Garden City is one from 2010 where Somali Muslims wanted a taxpayer supported cemetery to set aside a section just for Muslims so they wouldn’t have to be with infidels even after death.

For serious students of the history of Somalis and Tyson Foods in Kansas see our entire category on Emporia, KS by clicking here. It is a classic case of how a flood of refugees pushed a town over the edge. (Tyson ultimately closed the plant and moved refugees elsewhere.)

This is a bit of the AP story from over the weekend.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Three members of a Kansas militia group were charged Friday with plotting to bomb an apartment complex that’s home to Somali immigrants in the western Kansas meatpacking town of Garden City, a thwarted attack prosecutors say was planned for the day after the November election.

The arrests were the culmination of an eight-month FBI investigation [suspicious timing?—ed] that took agents “deep into a hidden culture of hatred and violence,” Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said.

A complaint unsealed Friday charges Curtis Wayne Allen, 49; Patrick Eugene Stein, 47; and Gavin Wayne Wright, 49, with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction. Their first court appearance is Monday.

Prosecutors said the men don’t yet have attorneys. Publicly listed phone numbers for the men couldn’t immediately be found.

The men are members of a small militia group that calls itself “the Crusaders,” and whose members espouse sovereign citizen, anti-government, anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant extremist beliefs, according to the complaint.

Continue reading here.

It looks like it is Catholic Charities that is resettling refugees (including many Muslims) in to Garden City.  See here.

Germany: Another Syrian refugee arrested for planning terror attack

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 10, 2016

Invasion of Europe news….

German police arrested a Syrian refugee who had been granted asylum (that means they had screened him and approved him) after a two day manhunt late yesterday. So much for vetting Syrians!

We do not want to be Europe!


Don’t forget! When Hillary was asked who is the world leader she most admires, she answered German Chancellor Angela Merkel who has allowed a million Middle Eastern and African migrants to invade Germany.

In last night’s debate, it is too bad ‘The Donald’ didn’t mention how the US would be following in Mama Merkel’s foot steps if we elect Hillary as Prez. (But then it’s too easy for us to ‘monday morning quarterback.’)

Here is one of many news accounts about the latest Islamic terror plot in Germany, this one at ABC News:

German police arrested early Monday a Syrian man who is suspected of preparing a bomb attack, following a nearly two-day manhunt.

Jaber Albakr, a 22-year-old who had been granted asylum in Germany, was arrested in the eastern city of Leipzig, police in Saxony state said. Leipzig is around 80 kilometers (50 miles) from Chemnitz, where he had evaded authorities on Saturday and where authorities found explosives.

Police were informed that fellow Syrians were holding the suspect at an apartment in Leipzig, and “immediately went there and arrested him,” Saxony police spokesman Tom Bernhardt said.


German media have reported that Albakr is believed to be connected to Islamic extremist groups, but Saxony police have not commented on his possible motive or the bomb plot’s target.

The explosives were destroyed Saturday in a controlled detonation by bomb squad experts in a pit dug outside the five-story apartment building because they were considered too dangerous to transport.

In July, two attacks carried out by asylum seekers and claimed by the Islamic State group, in which multiple people were injured and the assailants were killed, put Germany on edge — along with two other attacks unrelated to Islamic extremism, including a deadly mall shooting in Munich.

Authorities say Albakr came to Germany in the flood of 890,000 migrants who entered the country in 2015 and had been granted asylum.

Again, dear readers, if he was granted asylum he went through a vetting process and was found to be a stellar candidate to become a NEW German!

Trump’s people should run ads showing the horror show going on in Europe and say that Hillary wants to open the floodgates here too!

Wisconsin Refugee Agency may have scammed taxpayers big time!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 9, 2016

Call home Paul Ryan!  This outrageous “savings” program is one of many, you as Speaker of the House, need to investigate!


Speaker Paul Ryan has shown zero interest in reforming the Refugee Act of 1980. I wonder could we suggest Janesville (his home town) as one of the many new resettlement sites in America!

I’m guessing this is not an isolated case.

For new readers, Speaker Paul Ryan has not allowed any serious Refugee Act reform bills (he allowed one sham bill because he knew the Senate wouldn’t pass it anyway) to move forward in the House during his tenure as speaker and for that matter neither has Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

These so-called ‘Individual Development Accounts’ are an abomination and potentially rife with fraud. When taxpayers learn about them (we have mentioned them on many occasions) they are shocked.

The federal government actually gives grants to non-profit refugee agencies to administer a program which allows refugees to get matching funds when they save money for four things (Education, business, home or car).

How would you like to get such a deal:

For every dollar a refugee saves, he/she is matched a dollar out of  the US Treasury (your pocket)!

But, again the program is managed by a resettlement contractor (with no accountability to the taxpayer) like this one in Milwaukee.  Financial audits/investigations of the contractors are rare.

From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel  (hat tip: Joanne):

A Milwaukee nonprofit that offers after-school programs for refugee children and other assistance for refugees is under investigation for alleged misuse of federal funds.

The Pan-African Community Association gave money to at least 32 people who were not eligible to receive funds, investigators with the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement have found, according to records obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel under the Freedom of Information Act.


The Ethiopian Community Development Council is one of nine federally funded refugee contractors that could not exist without your tax dollars. Go to this link to see if they have an office near you:

In addition, the organization violated terms of federal grants by spending more than 35% of its annual budget on administrative costs and paying individuals in the form of money orders, rather than paying vendors directly for items purchased, the reports state.

The association received more than $440,000 in federal funds from 2012 to 2015 to help refugees from Africa and around the world buy cars and houses and to open businesses in Milwaukee. Using Individual Development Accounts, the program was designed to offer matching grants to refugees who, for example, saved at least $2,000 of their own money to go toward the purchase of a car or $4,000 toward a house.


The Pan-African Community Association is contracted through the “preferred communities program,” with the Ethiopian Community Development Council. The council, in turn, is one of about 10 [nine actually—ed] national organizations — mostly faith-based — that the federal government contracts with to provide services to refugees.

Continue here for more of the gory details and denials.

I haven’t written about “preferred communities” since here in 2014. But, you might have a look and see if your city is one of them. They don’t change often.

Call Congress!

Time to listen to ‘Mom for Trump’ (I am not going to quit trying to persuade you that right now there is only one place to put pressure to slow the flow of third worlders to your towns—Congress!):

Ann, could you tell all your readers on a daily basis to call our useless Congress @ 202 224 3121 and have them say DEFUND REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM. I call daily and if enough of us do so, we can make a difference.

If you have problems getting a live person on the phone when you call Washington (like I did when I called my Congressman John Delaney (D-MD) the other day), then find out the locations and phone numbers of their district and state offices and call those.  When you have someone on the phone on Tuesday (they surely won’t be there on Monday), in addition to telling them to defund the program, find out where your member or Senator will be in the coming weeks and be there!  Ask (in person, in front of an audience) if he or she will Defund the Refugee Resettlement Program when they get back to DC after the election.

One more child ‘refugee’ grows up and wants to kill Americans, Maryland this time

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 4, 2016

His name is Mohamed and he came from Bangladesh as a baby.  Was he a part of a refugee family (the knife attacker in St. Cloud), a successful asylum seeker family (like the Tsarnaevs or the recent NJ bomber), or perhaps his family won the ‘diversity visa lottery’ (we have taken thousands of Bangladeshis through that dreadful program)? All are legal immigration programs the Republicans in Congress refuse to fix!

And, as long as law enforcement, the Department of Homeland Security, and most media don’t tell us which legal means the newest Islamic terrorist used to get in to the US, I’ve decided to call them all refugees.


He was one more ISIS terrorist. Another story at AP gives additional details:

Enterprising reporters should call all of the federal resettlement contractors in Maryland and see if he is one of theirs.

Here is news about the latest Islamic terrorist we raised with our welfare dollars.

From Breitbart:

The FBI has detained yet another Islamic immigrant named Mohamed for preparing a jihad attack.

This time, the arrested Islamic immigrant is Nelash Mohamed Das, aged 24. He was born in Bangladesh and was living in Maryland.

Since 2001, law-enforcement officials have arrested more than 101 people named for Islam’s reputed prophet, Muhammad. Many other Islamic immigrants, converts and citizens have launched deadly attacks against Americans in Orlando, Florida, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in San Bernardino, California, in Fort Hood, Texas, and in other places.

In 2015, Das began to prepare a murder attempt of a U.S. service member living in Hyattsville, Maryland. When he and a confidential FBI source drove to the target’s house on October 3, Das was arrested as he tried to remove the weapons from the car’s trunk.

Keep reading.

By the way, here is my fix for every one of the cases where we raised a child and he (or she) grew up to be convicted on terrorism charges, the whole family gets deported and any other relatives and friends who could be proven to know what he/she was up to—out!  A few cases like that and we wouldn’t have these ethnic families and communities knowing that an attack was coming and remaining silent.

Maine has a sexual assault problem in its Somali community

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 30, 2016

Well, what else can you conclude when the federal government shovels a whopping $300,000 grant to a Somali women’s group located in Lewiston, ME.

How funny! The group was renamed with a more generic sounding name probably to more easily get the payola.


Maine’s Republican Senator Susan Collins is one of the worst Republican Senators on the Hill. Years ago I went to a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing she was co-chairing and I was stunned by her naive and silly way of looking at the terrorism issue as it related to Somalis leaving the US to join the jihadists.

BTW, when we first began writing RRW back in 2007 there were allegations in Tennessee that similar grant money, to a Somali group for the women, ended up in some Imam’s pocket who had mysteriously returned to Somalia.

Here is the short story from AP:

LEWISTON, Maine (AP) – The federal Office on Violence Against Women is giving a Maine immigration resource center $300,000 for sexual assault and domestic violence advocacy in the immigrant community.

The money is going to Immigration Resource Center of Maine, which is located in Lewiston. The center was formerly called the United Somali Women of Maine.

Maine U.S. Sens. Angus King and Susan Collins say the immigration resource center will create, maintain and expand sexual assault services for East African sexual assault victims who live in southern Maine. [I can assure you that white Mainers are not doing the assaulting!—ed]

The senators say the money will help provide culturally specific services to ensure that members of Maine’s East African community have support and education about sexual assault and domestic violence.

Wow! How many sexual assaults and domestic violence cases are there in Maine?

Where is the media on that hot story?

Diversity not so beautiful in Elizabeth, NJ

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 27, 2016

The Leftist Open Borders activists and the Refugee Resettlement contractors continue to promote the naive concept that all immigrants they shove together in neighborhoods throughout American towns and cities love each other and are eager for the mixing of cultures they are told happens in the mythical American melting pot.


David Miliband, a British national, is head of the federal resettlement contractor diversifying Elizabeth, NJ. He and Hillary are long-time pals! If Hillary is elected, expect tens of thousands more refugees arriving in your towns. Go here for our huge archive on Miliband:

It is a big lie that immigrants living next door to each other (and next door to African-Americans) are all living in harmony. It is a lie we have reported on many times over the years as the mainstream media usually hides the friction from the general public.

But, I guess in the case of Elizabeth, NJ, hometown of one of the recent Islamic terrorists who came out of the closet, even the Los Angeles Times is reporting on the growing fear of Muslims by the earlier Hispanic immigrant waves.

By the way, I’ve even heard that in some big food processing/manufacturing plants the Muslim workers and Hispanic workers are assigned to different shifts so as not to create more tension in the workplace.

Breitbart tells us all about how the fissures are showing in Elizabeth, NJ as reported by the LA Times (because let’s face it, how many of you are still reading the LA Times!):

“I used to think we were all immigrants, all the same people who came here for a better life. Now I’m not so sure,” a Colombian-American neighbor of First American Fried Chicken, the business linked to Afghan-American suspected terrorist Ahmad Khan Rahami, told the Los Angeles Times.

Gus Serrano, who lives in the Rahami family’s community in Elizabeth, New Jersey, was one of many who expressed reservation with the newest arrivals to the working-class, largely immigrant and refugee-populated city. Rahami was arrested last week after allegedly planting a series of bombs throughout the region – first in the sleepy shore town of Seaside Park, New Jersey, then in two locations in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, and, finally, at the Elizabeth, New Jersey, Transit train station.

In a notebook found on his person after a shootout with police, Rahami made mention of al-Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki and Islamic State chief propagandist Abu Mohammad al-Adnani. “Kill the kuffar in their backyard,” he wrote.

Hispanic immigrants are kuffars just like you and me!

Here is another quote from a woman who is reevaluating her thinking:

One woman told the Los Angeles Times that she used to chide a friend who would warn about Muslim immigrants. “I would tell my friend, ‘How can you say Muslims are terrorists?’” She says she is reconsidering her friend’s stance: “But now — oh my God — look what happened in our neighborhood. How can we know who to trust?”

Continue reading here.

Elizabeth, NJ is being diversified by federal contractor the International Rescue Committee, see here.

I just checked the Refugee Processing Center to see just how much diversity the IRC had dropped in Elizabeth over the last ten years (number of refugees in parenthesis):

Afghanistan (19)

Bhutan (15)

Burma (44)

Colombia (12)

Cuba (602)

DR Congo (75)

El Salvador (2)

Eritrea (15)

Ethiopia (8)

Iran (4)

Iraq (206)

Ivory Coast (4)

Latvia (1)

Moldova (8)

Pakistan (2)

Somalia (9)

Sri Lanka (5)

Sudan (41)

Syria (221)

Ukraine (4)

But not to worry, they are going to melt into multicultural bliss and live happily ever after.

Washington state killer is from Turkey, Muslim refugee family?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 25, 2016


Arcan Cetin

Unfortunately I have no time to learn more this morning. I’m dashing out to a meeting in DC, but caught a blip on the news that oops!, not Hispanic.  Breitbart posted a story during the night.  Here it is.

Police have identified the alleged shooter in the Burlington mall attack as Arcan Cetin, 20, of Oak Harbor, Washington. Multiple reports indicate that Cetin was an immigrant from Turkey — not a citizen, but a legal permanent resident of the United States.

So, through which LEGAL immigration program did he enter the US? More later!

Afterthought: could he be an Uzbek, a Chechen or Bosnian (we do take them as refugees and process many through Turkey!)  Just speculating! Readers, let me know what you find out today!

Update: See our comments for more on Cetin.  And note that there is a Syrian refugee camp at Adana, Turkey where Cetin is supposedly from.  So what is the story on this guy, why is it taking so long to fill us in.
