Oh brother, now the New York Times is on the Rohingya bandwagon

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 26, 2015

Here we go again, the media drumbeat to bring more refugees to America is sounding!

The Leftwing media is made up of a bunch of sheep as they follow one another with the same ‘news’ stories designed to advance a political agenda—in this case they are promoting the resettlement of Rohingya Muslims to America.

When the NYT gets on the story, you know the propaganda is reaching critical mass!

Rohingya boat people arrive in Indonesia. Indonesia is a safe Muslim country and if they are legitimate asylum seekers they should be asking for asylum there. When we bring them to America we create a ‘pull factor’ and more will attempt the voyage.

Why is it a concern of the US that too many Muslims from Muslim Bangladesh are flowing to the Muslim countries of Malaysia and Indonesia?  Why can’t they just stay there, in the Muslim world, with their co-religionists?   Is it America’s job to take every poor Muslim (or every poor person for that matter) to your towns?

And, btw, just as we are preoccupied with the lobbying push to resettle 65,000 Syrians (mostly Muslims), I guess the UN and the US State Department are going to start slipping in larger numbers of Rohingya behind our backs.

Here is the NYT beating the drum with its sob story:

There are at least 200,000 Rohingya migrants from Myanmar [aka Burma—ed] already in Bangladesh, and only 32,600 of them have been granted formal protection as refugees fleeing persecution, according to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Far fewer, perhaps only several hundred, have been resettled from refugee camps in Bangladesh over the past decade and allowed to begin new lives in other countries.

In Malaysia, those determined to be refugees and therefore eligible for resettlement, a process that could take years, would be joining more than 45,000 Rohingya who are already classified as refugees and are waiting to be taken in by another country. They receive no government aid while they wait, nor can they legally take jobs to support themselves.

About 1,000 Rohingya refugees were resettled in the United States in the last year.

I told you here in 2013 that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops asked the US State Department for more Rohingya to resettle.   My research indicates that we have admitted over 12,000 “Burmese Muslims” in the last 10 years—surely most are Rohingya.

The NYT continues:

The Rohingya, a stateless Muslim people who have long faced discrimination and have been deprived of basic rights in Myanmar, are likely to meet the criteria for refugee status under international law, namely having “a well-founded fear” of persecution for reasons of race, religion or nationality in their home country.

Such an effort, however, has yet to materialize.

According to the agreement hammered out last week by the foreign ministers of Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, none of those countries agreed to host any refugees permanently.

Australia’s prime minister, Tony Abbott, said Thursday that his country would not take any refugees from the current exodus.

Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Australia don’t want them—-why do we?

Homeland Security Subcommittee hearing on Syrian refugee security concerns postponed

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 20, 2015

Richard and Guterres

Asst. Sec. of State for PRM Anne Richard (left) and UNHCR Antonio Guterres want to send 11,000 Syrians to your towns and cities this year.

I am not surprised.

This is one of the hottest national security issues we have going right now—the question of whether we should be admitting the 11,000 Syrian refugees the UN has picked out for us without jeopardizing our safety!

A reader just sent us the postponement notice for a hearing we were anxious to see tomorrow. I’ve gotten pretty cynical, so wonder if someone got to the chairman?

Here is the announcement.

If you were planning on contacting your member of Congress on this, please still do so!

Breaking news:  Man arrested in Italy is believed to be responsible for the deadly Tunisian museum attack.  He got into Europe pretending to be a REFUGEE.

P.S. to the Michigan group I spoke with last night!  I have not forgotten!  I do plan to post the Michigan data, but have run out of time this morning!

Let’s not bring 50,000 Syrians to Detroit, it is a dumb idea!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 18, 2015

It is a dumb idea to bring 50,000 to the whole of the United States, but that is exactly what some in the refugee contracting community want to see. Remember UK Labor Party transplant, David Miliband, now CEO of the largest (financially) US resettlement contractor, the International Rescue Committee recently said Obama must admit 65,000 Syrians to the US by the end of his term in office—by the end of 2016!

Now the New York Times has published an Op-Ed by a couple of open borders agitators suggesting Detroit could be saved by the infusion of 50,000 Syrians refugees into the city overnight.  On what planet are these guys living?

They never mention of course that the FBI testified in the House Homeland Security Committee that we cannot properly screen Syrians for security concerns because there are no records available on who they are!

Republican Governor Rick Snyder expanded Medicaid in Michigan and got a pat on the back from pal Obama. Readers, the expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare is one of the major reasons your state will become a magnet for immigrant and refugee “seedlings” in Obama’s plan to colonize American towns with “New Americans.” http://www.mlive.com/lansing-news/index.ssf/2015/02/michigan_political_points_pres.html

You’ve probably seen this outrageous suggestion because it came out the day before I went to Iowa.  (I have a lot of catching up to do and my internet connection is dropping!—grrrr!)

LOL! looks like the idea was dead in the water by Friday as hundreds of critical comments flooded the NYT!   Maybe it’s not too late for yours to be added!

The New York Times (hat tip: Dick):

Detroit, a once great city, has become an urban vacuum. Its population has fallen to around 700,000 from nearly 1.9 million in 1950. The city is estimated to have more than 70,000 abandoned buildings and 90,000 vacant lots. Meanwhile, desperate Syrians, victims of an unfathomable civil war, are fleeing to neighboring countries, with some 1.8 million in Turkey and 600,000 in Jordan.

Suppose these two social and humanitarian disasters were conjoined to produce something positive.

Gov. Rick Snyder of Michigan, a Republican, has already laid the groundwork. In January 2014 he called for an infusion of 50,000 immigrants as part of a program to revitalize Detroit, and signed an executive order creating the Michigan Office for New Americans.  [Here is one story about Gov. Snyder inviting in to Michigan Middle Eastern migrants.—ed]

Syrian refugees would be an ideal community to realize this goal, as Arab-Americans are already a vibrant and successful presence in the Detroit metropolitan area.

You have to give it to these authors for hutzpah as they list cities (as wonderful examples of immigrant assimilation) that are having huge problems with their refugee communities.  And, they don’t even mention the Somali ISIS-wannabes in Minneapolis!

Utica this year filed suit against the State of New York attempting to get more money out of the government for its horrific immigrant-overloaded school system problems, and we have a lengthy archive of horror stories from Lewiston, ME where one recent little problem cropped up when a Somali kid burned down an apartment building!

Refugees resettled from a single war zone have helped revitalize several American communities, notably Hmong in previously neglected neighborhoods in Minneapolis, Bosnians in Utica, N.Y., and Somalis in Lewiston, Me.

Obama would have to lift the ceiling (exactly as David Miliband recommended), the already impossible security screening would have to be expedited, and you the taxpayer, will be hit up for an expansion of the refugee spending budget of $1.5 billion!  (which, by the way, is a figure larger than it has been previously reported).

Resettling Syrians in Detroit would require commitment and cooperation across different branches and levels of our government, but it is eminently feasible. President Obama and Congress would have to agree to lift this year’s refugee ceiling by 50,000. The State Department, which handles overseas processing of refugees, would need to open offices at the camps in Jordan and Turkey, determine eligibility and administer a lottery for resettlement. Homeland Security, which controls the borders, would have to carry out accelerated security checks, as has been done in the past for Vietnamese and for Iranian religious minorities. Health and Human Services would need an expansion in the $1.5 billion it budgets for refugee resettlement.

There is much more, read it all here.

And, as for the African American community of Detroit buying this diversity is beautiful mythology.  Check out Baltimore where black gangs directed mobs to loot Arab and Asian stores!

Everyone is abuzz about the DHS bus carrying Somalis looking for asylum in the US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2015

Surely you’ve seen the news by now (it is all over the internet) about the DHS bus in California carrying Somalis and other Africans apprehended at our southern border and now asking for asylum.

The story, that began as a video clip making the rounds of social media is fleshed out further here at World Net Daily.   Luckily broadcaster Anita Fuentes of ‘Open your eyes people,’ was there to ask questions of the driver and to film the bus.

Go to World Net Daily for the full story and more about Somalis and asylum in the US.

For new readers, once an alien is granted asylum they may receive all of the social service benefits that a normal refugee gets, and they may get care from one of the federal resettlement contractors.

Asha Omar (19) granted asylum in El Paso, Texas in 2010, tells the improbable tale that she “made her way” by herself to America with a stop in Cuba before reaching the Mexican border. http://www.lcsun-news.com/las_cruces-news/ci_17039428

This is not news to us!

We have been telling readers for years about the Somali trail from Africa to our southern border and a claim of asylum.

In 2011, we urged Congress to investigate the strange phenomenon of a supposedly impoverished young Somali traveling sometimes from Somalia to Syria to Russia to Cuba and then to Central America or Mexico and making it to the US border where a claim for asylum would be made with the help of immigration lawyers who seemed to be expecting them!

It is not just in the Mediterranean region where an invasion is occurring!

Here is the 2011 post in which I urged Congress to investigate this strange business:

Is there a conspiracy by NGO’s to bring asylum seekers to US borders?

Here is an earlier post (2009) about Africans getting to South America on their way to the US southern border:

African asylum seekers reaching South America, hope to get to the US

And, here is a more recent post on the same subject:

Six Somalis headed to US arrested in Mexico

There are more posts on the same subject here at RRW, but no time to search for them right now.

I once saw a fantastic travel map for Somalis who ‘made their way’ to Russia and then flew to Cuba from there.  Next stop was Mexico and the US border (wish I could find it to show you!).

Does no one ever ask?  Who is helping these ‘youths’ and who is paying for it all?   I’ve seen estimates that such a travel plan costs upwards of $10,000.

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.

1.6 million green cards issued to immigrants from Muslim countries; refugees in the mix

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 12, 2015

This is a gem.  Thanks to Conservative Review and investigator/writer Daniel Horowitz for pulling these numbers together in an easy to see graphic form.  See the whole story here.   Horowitz mentions refugees as part of the flow.  (hat tip: Dick):

 

 

There is one caveat we need to mention and that is that not all of those entering the US from countries such as Iraq or Iran are Muslims, but we do get at least a ball park number from this data.   Also, we do not take refugees from all of those countries listed above which reminds us that there are other LEGAL immigration programs admitting Muslim immigrants into the US.  The next step is to identify all of those methods of entry.

Virginia: African refugee from Togo in US for nine days before attempted rape

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 11, 2015

Update May 12th:  More at WND about this case and a list of cases where refugees have been involved in major crime and terror cases.

Editor:  Is there something about Mondays, or is the issue of Refugee Resettlement really heating up?  I am leaving to speak in Pennsylvania this evening and have little time to post, so thanks to all who sent additional stories today.  I will get to them later or tomorrow.

Tchalim Koboya Lidawo, your friendly refugee next door?

Wanted to get this one posted while it’s still hot.  He gets only ten years for attempted rape?  If a passerby hadn’t come along it wouldn’t have only been “attempted.”

By the way, I wondered if he was a legitimate ‘refugee.’ or here through some other legal program.  So, I checked the State Department stats and was surprised to find that we do take refugees from Togo.  Why?

So much for that security screening the US State Department and its contractors are always bragging about!

From WUSA-9 (hat tip: Joanne):

Leesburg, Va. – A West African man who attempted to rape a woman just nine days after arriving in the United States has been sentenced to ten years in prison.

Tchalim Koboya Lidawo pleaded no contest to two counts of attempted rape and one count of abduction with force in connection to an incident that occurred on December 4th, 2014, the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office said.

The incident occurred at an Ashburn apartment complex, according to officials. The victim told law enforcement that she was taking out her trash when Lidawo approached her near the dumpster. He grabbed the victim and dragged her into some nearby woods, officials said.

A struggle ensued, the victim fell down, and Lidawo climbed on top of her, according to the attorney’s office said.

A passerby heard the victim’s screams and approached, causing Lidawo to get up and run into the woods. The victim provided police with a description of Lidawo, leadnig to his arrest.

Lidawo was sentenced to ten years with additional five years of suspended time according to officials. He must also pay a $5,000 fine.

As a native of Togo, Lidawo may be removed from the United States when he is released.  [He won’t be!—ed]

So now we get to pay for his prison stay!

I think there should be a requirement that the US State Department and its contractors pay for the legal costs of criminal trials and imprisonment for every refugee who commits a crime.  Of course, that would still come out of our pockets (the taxpayers), but it would send a very important message to the public.

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.

Read more here.

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.

Syrian refugee in Denmark wants two wives; here comes the shariah

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 11, 2015

People often want to know exactly how is civilization jihad creeping into western society.  Here is a case in point.

A Syrian “refugee” who apparently got into Italy (did he cross the Mediterranean?) and made his way to Denmark “married” a Danish woman in an Islamic ceremony not legally sanctioned in Denmark, but now wants to bring his whole Syrian family to Denmark (his wife and other children).

In Syria (and in majority Muslim countries), we are told a Muslim man may have up to 4 wives.

If you are wondering, some “refugees” in America already have more than one wife and their resettlement contractor often knows about it!

From Speisa (Hat tip: Joanne):

A Syrian refugee with a Danish wife also wants to bring his Syrian wife and children to Denmark.

Mohammed with Danish wife who is fine with his wish to reunite with Syrian wife and kiddos…. Photo: http://speisa.com/modules/articles/index.php/item.1286/syrian-refugee-wants-to-live-with-two-wives-in-denmark.html

Mohammed Hussein Kurdi fled the war in Syria three years ago. Via Italy he came to Denmark, where he married the Danish woman Monika Seberg.

The two had a child together in March (2014) and Mohammed received a permanent residence permit in Denmark.

But back in Syria, he also has a wife and three children. Those he would now like to bring to Denmark.

Mohammed misses his three Syrian children and his wife. So now they want to apply for family reunification.

Mohammed has not lied to Monika about his Syrian family, she says:

– He has never concealed the fact that he has a wife and three children, says Monika Seberg.

In Denmark it is forbidden to have multiple wives. But the Danish authorities do not recognize Monika and Mohammed’s marriage because it is Islamic.  [So technically, he would have every legal right to reunite with his Syrian wife. Right?—ed]

They will need a bigger home! So who pays for that, the Danish taxpayer?

– There should be two bedrooms, one for her and one for me, and then Mohammed will sleep some nights in one place and some nights the second place, says Monika.

Watch for it, we will have Europe’s headaches soon enough….

Our ‘Invasion of Europe’ series is here.

California: Sexual pervert, Mohammad Khaliqi, caught on home surveillance attempting to rape 13-year old

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 9, 2015

You probably saw the news already, but I just happened to see Fox News run the home surveillance video of the attempted rape of a 13-year-old home alone.  The perpetrator is seen following her to her home.

But, here is what I want to know!

 

Mohammad’s mugshot and screen shots of his failed attack on the girl. How wonderful that his family had a home surveillance system!

 

What is the the immigration status of Mohammad Khaliqi? 

Could he be one of the thousands of Iraqi “refugees” resettled in California?

There should be a law!  Every crime report should clearly spell out the immigration status of the alleged criminal.  Of course, maybe some do and the mainstream media is too politically correct to mention it.

If you see any news about how Mohammad Khaliqi got into the US, let us know!

Here is one of many stories on the arrest:

SAN JOSE, Calif. —
San Jose police have arrested a man accused of forcing himself on a 13-year-old girl as she returned home from school.

The suspect has been identified as Mohammad Khaliqi, 31, of San Jose. Police arrested Khaliqi in the 1400 block of School St. in San Leandro on Friday morning.

He’s facing multiple counts of burglary, attempted sexual assault and false imprisonment.

On Tuesday, the man followed the girl as she walked home from school. She told investigators he had forced his way through the front door of her home as she went inside. She fought him off and he fled before police arrived.

The girl then locked the door after he left, hid in a closet and texted her father: “DADDY COME HOME NOW. SOME GUY TRIED TO RAPE ME.”

He is also accused of another, earlier, failed attack in San Jose.

Since I’m not a lawyer, I don’t know where one would attempt to codify this in law, but I wonder if there could be a bill introduced in state legislatures to require arrest documents to include immigration status that is available to the public.
