NY Times: In FY 2017, record number of Somalis were deported from US to Somalia

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 10, 2017

Adding more information to the strange story we reported yesterday about an ICE flight to Africa carrying 92 Somalis destined to go home to Somalia but instead did a U-turn and returned to the US after landing in Senegal.

Minnesota immigration lawyer Kim Hunter talked to the NY Times about her Somali clients.  http://www.kimhunterlaw.com/staff/

The NY Times after many whinny paragraphs devoted to lawyer Kim Hunter, whose clients were on the plane, tells us a few bits of information we didn’t know.

Besides learning that the new government in Somalia is cooperating with the US and that the flight is being returned to Louisiana, here is some useful data:

Many Somali citizens who are in the United States without documentation have been able to stay for years despite deportation orders because Somalia would not grant them the necessary travel documents. Mogadishu, which opened an embassy in Washington in 2015, appears to be cooperating with American officials to accept more of its citizens back.

Even Obama was deporting Somalis!

The number of Somali people being deported from the United States has risen since 2014. During that fiscal year, 65 Somali citizens were removed from the United States. That number jumped to 120 the next year, and 198 the year after that.

Trump administration picks up the pace!

In the fiscal year 2017, 521 Somali citizens were deported, according to the most recent report from ICE. A spokeswoman for the agency said there were five chartered flights to Somalia that year.

Read it all here.

One advantage of this ICE flight mess-up is that we now know about these deportations and so do a whole lot of other people—including those Somalis who are trying to figure out how to illegally enter the US right now.

And, will we see more “undocumented” Somalis headed to Canada via frozen northern Minnesota and North Dakota?

Plane with deportees lands in Africa and then returns to US without dropping off Somalis

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 9, 2017

This is a very strange story this morning at the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Thanks to reader Margaret for sending.

When the ICE plane touched down in Dakar, seems there was a problem getting a crew that had enough rest in order for the nearly 6,000 mile upcoming leg of the trip to continue from Dakar (Senegal) to Mogadishu in Somalia.

The mystery is intriguing, but the more important news here is that 92 Somalis were being deported from the US!

From the Star Tribune:

A plane with deportees to Somalia, including at least four from Minnesota, returned to the United States on Friday after a stop in Senegal that authorities said did not go according to plan.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a statement that a flight with 92 deportees headed back after a refueling and pilot exchange stop in Dakar. As the plane landed in Dakar, ICE was notified that relief crew members were not able to get enough rest because of issues with their hotel, and the plane remained parked at the airport to allow the relief crew time to rest.

“Various logistical options were explored, and ultimately ICE decided to reschedule the mission to Somalia and return to the United States with all 92 detainees,” said the statement from the agency.

Local attorneys for several of the deportees on the flight said they were baffled by the turn of events — but hopeful the flight’s return might offer some of their clients a long-shot opening to block their deportations.

The number of Somalia natives the United States deports to their homeland has increased markedly in recent years, and the Trump administration this year removed that country from a list of nations deemed uncooperative on deportations.

The U.S. government has argued that conditions in the East African country have improved sufficiently to return people there. Advocates have pointed to a string of deadly terror attacks in Somalia as they insist the country remains unsafe.

Continue reading here and see that lawyers for the deportees are hoping this gives them another shot at a reprieve for their clients.

We have on many occasions reported that Somalis are traveling back and forth between Somalia and the US for pleasure trips, so we can assume that the country is safe enough.

See my post the other day in which I asked, does it ever end?  Thirty-plus years since we have been ‘welcoming’ Somali refugees.  Are they ever expected to get their country in order?

Bottomline here is that if its safe to send deportees home, then we no longer need to take Somali refugees, right?

Resettle Rohingya ‘refugees’ in Muslim countries where they can have a future

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 9, 2017

When I saw this opinion piece in The Hill my first thought was: oh no, not another politically correct B.S. whine-fest about the ‘plight’ of the Rohingya people of Bangladesh and Burma (aka Myanmar).

 

myanmar-monks-protest-rohingya-jan16-2014

Buddhist monks protest against the so-called Rohingya.

 

I thought I knew what was coming—that the US and other Western countries must ‘welcome’ them to our towns and cities—when I read the title of the piece by Jeff Goodson:

Resettle the Rohingya refugees where they can have a real future

But, boy was I wrong and am blown away that The Hill even published this commentary.

The Human Rights Industrial Complex (HRIC) must be having a ‘hair on fire’ moment.

Here is some of what a retired foreign service officer, with a long distinguished career, was permitted to say (emphasis is mine):

(LOL! my first tip-off that this wasn’t what I thought, was the use of the words “high dither” to describe the HRIC!)

International humanitarian and rights groups and the Muslim diaspora have been in high dither over Burma’s crackdown on Rohingya Muslims. The counterinsurgency operation, which was precipitated by Rohingya insurgent attacks in August, has so far sent 626,000 Rohingya fleeing to Bangladesh.

International players in the drama are acting perfectly in character. The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), which conducted the attacks, called itself a garden-variety ethnic insurgent group out to protect the Rohingya people against state repression. Burma declared ARSA a terrorist group, and initiated what it calls a legitimate counterinsurgency campaign against extremist Bengali terrorists. Rakhine Buddhist nationalists actively supported the army, and took their own vigilante action.

Al-Jazeera, Qatar’s official mouthpiece for spreading Salafist propaganda, called for foreign governments and international institutions to force the hand of the Suu Kyi government and hold it accountable. The oratory of the Muslim diaspora, meanwhile, quickly reached fever pitch.

[….]

If the international community really wants to do something constructive about the crisis, it will stop debating semantics and focus on permanently resettling the Rohingya refugees.

Uh oh! This is where I thought Goodson would go PC (politically correct) on me! Imagine my shock to see this prescription:

What is needed is for the U.N. and other bilateral, regional and non-state actors to start planning for permanent resettlement of the refugees in Muslim countries that already host large Rohingya populations. These are Bangladesh, now with about a million Rohingya, Pakistan with 350,000, Saudi Arabia with 200,000, Malaysia with 50,000, the UAE with 10,000 and Indonesia with 1,000. Since Pakistan and Saudi Arabia were so helpful in creating, training and arming ARSA, they will no doubt be especially welcoming to their Rohingya brothers and sisters.

[….]

All of the players in this drama are acting in character, and Burma is no different. It may be the most insurgent-prone country in the world, with 47 armed ethnic groups, and it will no doubt continue fighting this insurgency as it has fought others for the last 70 years — in this case with help from China. If it’s smart, it will stop the violence, peacefully escort the remaining Rohingya to the border with Bangladesh, and seal that border permanently.

Be still my beating heart!  Goodson wraps with this:

It’s time to end the Rohingya insurgency for good, stop the recurring humanitarian crises, and close off western Burma permanently as a potential gateway for Islamic jihad. Whatever the fate of the few hundred thousand Rohingya still remaining in Burma, the international community should stop setting its hair on fire and focus on doing what it does best: help resettle the Rohingya refugees to countries where they can have a real future.

More details from Jeff Goodson about the Rohingya situation that is already causing thousands to be placed in Your Town, USA!

EU suing countries that refuse migrants

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 9, 2017

Pressure from Brussels is being ratcheted up against the so called Visegrad three (there were four!) to take thousands of those illegal migrants that have ‘made their way’ across the Mediterranean or came in via Turkey to Greece and are now piled up in Italy or Greece.

I’m calling them migrants because in most cases their status as legitimate refugees has not been determined.  Asylum seekers who can prove they would be persecuted if returned to their own countries become legitimate refugees only after having had their asylum claims processed and approved.

Orban and Soros

Hungarian Prime Minister Orban says George Soros is working to push migrants throughout Europe. As I have said repeatedly, Donald Trump should invite Orban to a state dinner and send a powerful message!  https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/10/30/hungary-investigating-soros-network-we-should-be-as-well/

We learned this week that Germany was preparing to begin returning to Syria those migrants who failed their asylum requests.  See here.

Here is news from News Europe:

The European Commission is suing Poland, the Czech Republic, and Hungary for failing to fulfill their obligations in the context of the European refugee relocation programme.

The Visegrad four had all objected, with Slovakia joining Hungary in suing the European Commission for interfering with their sovereignty. Slovakia stepped down from its confrontation with Brussels, but Prague, Warsaw, and Budapest continue to express objections to the programme. Turning the tables, the European Commission is now taking the three countries to the European Court of Justice (ECJ).

The refugee relocation plan was adopted in 2015 and envisaged the relocation of 160,000 refugees from Greece and Italy to the rest of the EU. The resettlement scheme took into account unemployment, GDP, and population. The quota for the Visegrad countries was 8,000 refugees.

The Law and Justice (PiS) government insists Poland will not accept migrants from Africa and the Middle East citing security concerns.

I wonder if these countries are thinking about getting out of the EU as the UK is now (slowly) doing.  Each could trade directly with the UK and the US.  But, they would need to build up their armies, shore up their borders as the Muslim population grows in Germany, France, Belgium, etc. in the coming decades.

Australians blame US for ripping apart families in that “dumb deal”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 6, 2017

It is not too late!

Dear President Trump halt the “dumb” Australia deal where we are resettling illegal aliens who are Australia’s problem to unsuspecting American cities.  You had the right America First! instincts back in February when you called it a “dumb deal.”

This is a no-win for America!

australian detainees

The mostly Muslim men, some held in detention for 4 years, are being processed as refugees for Anytown, USA. So far the Trump Admin. has admitted over 50 with another 90 approved to be resettled in a month or so.  https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2017/11/27/trumps-dumb-deal-more-australian-detainees-will-be-arriving-in-the-us-after-the-first-of-the-year/

Here we learn that the US State Department supposedly only wants single men in the unprecedented deal Obama struck just as he was leaving office.

(For new readers, see my Australia deal archive by clicking here to catch up!)

And, so Australian leftwing politicians and the media there are showing that the deal is dividing families!

Again, the US is made to look bad, so let’s scrap the whole thing!

From SBS News Australia:

Refugees being held on Nauru are being encouraged to sever ties with family members in Australia when applying for resettlement in the United States, prompting an angry response from parliamentarians.

But Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has defended the direction, pointing out only those held in offshore detention can be considered under the US deal.

Recordings of phone conversations and an email chain obtained by The Guardian, detail Australian Border Force encouraging refugees on Nauru to permanently separate from family members in Australia.

[….]

A US resettlement deal struck between former president Barack Obama and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull provided a possible path out of detention for refugees detained offshore.

The US has reportedly preferred to resettle single people rather than families.

The UN Refugee Agency recognises the integrity of the refugee family is both a legal right and a humanitarian principle.

Go here for more.

Let me repeat, this whole deal is unprecedented and should never have been consummated!

These are illegal aliens who sought asylum in Australia and are thus Australia’s problem!

Imagine the uproar if asylum seekers at the US border were detained and shipped off to Australia or where ever.  Can you hear the roars of outrage from the worldwide Human Rights Industrial Complex.

Australian detention center riot ended with PNG police clearing the facility

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 24, 2017

That is the news this morning from The National.

Why does that matter to us?  Because some of those rioting and refusing to be moved to another processing center could end up in your town in America.

Two days ago it was a different story. From the Times of Malta:

Look at the video (in the story) and consider this, some of these men may be flown to America to be quietly placed in your town by the US State Department and its contractors.***

 

Screenshot (1110)

Video shot inside facility as detainees refused to be removed. These are the ‘refugees’ Australia doesn’t want, but supposedly America does?

 

 

And, check it out, how do detainees have fully-charged phones to be able to film this and tweet to the world.  They think (so they say) that if they step out of the door of the closed facility the locals will attack them.

Papua New Guinea authorities have ratcheted up pressure on more than 300 asylum seekers to abandon a decommissioned immigration camp, where refugees reported their shelters, beds and other belongings had been destroyed.

Police Chief Superintendent Dominic Kakas said 50 police and immigration officials entered the Manus Island camp on Thursday morning and persuaded 35 of the 378 men there to leave for alternative accommodation in the nearby town of Lorengau.

Water, power and food supplies ended when the Manus camp officially closed on October 31, following the Papua New Guinea Supreme Court’s ruling last year that Australia’s policy of housing asylum seekers there was unconstitutional.

But asylum seekers say they fear for their safety in Lorengau because of threats from local residents.

Kakas said force would not be used to empty the squalid Manus Island camp.

“There’s no raid. It’s an ongoing negotiation with the refugees,” Kakas told The Associated Press. “It’s not an eviction exercise. We’re telling them to move because there’s water, food and proper shelter on the other side.”

[….]

Sudanese refugee Abdul Aziz Adam tweeted that police had arrested Iranian refugee and journalist Behrouz Boochan.

Boochan had earlier tweeted: “They are destroying everything. Shelters, tanks, beds and all of our belongings.”

[….]

Australia pays Papua New Guinea, its nearest neighbour, and the tiny Pacific nation of Nauru to hold thousands of asylum seekers from Africa, the Middle East and Asia who have attempted to reach Australian shores by boat since mid-2013.

More here.

Not mentioned in the text that accompanies the video, is this near the end: New Zealand has offered to take some of the detainees but Australia declined the offer.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says that the priority is the existing refugee swap deal with the US.

Trump and turnbull on phone

Initially Trump told Turnbull it was a “dumb deal.” Still is!

Go back and look at that video and consider that some of these men will be living in your town because Donald Trump said he will honor the unorthodox deal the Obama Administration made with Australia as Obama was walking out the door in late 2016.

BTW, that story from The National I linked above says 24 of the DETAINEES have already arrived in America, but that doesn’t fit the number we had heard previously—-we heard 50 have arrived of the possible 1,250.

See my complete archive on the ‘Australia deal’ by clicking here. And for all of my posts on Australia, go here.

If you have never told the White House what you think about the Obama/Trump “dumb deal” with Australia, take a few minutes and do it (here). 

***These are the nine major US taxpayer-funded NGOs responsible for (secretly) placing refugees in hundreds of American towns.

Canada: Trying to deport thousands, but home countries won’t take them back

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 22, 2017

Although the story is headlined….

Canada Attempts To Deport Illegal Somali Immigrants

….the article makes the case that the Canadian government is not naming those countries, but obviously someone is naming the countries as we see in the headline and the last paragraph!

The United States is listed as one country not willing to take back its ‘citizens’ (probably for very good reasons!) who fled to Canada! 

From Shabelle News (a Mogadishu, Somalia news outfit):

Canada’s attempts to send up to 1,000 foreigners who are here illegally back to their home countries are being stymied by nations refusing to take them back, officials said Monday.

abdulahi-hasan-sharif

Somali ‘refugee’ Abdulahi Hasan Sharif fled to “welcoming” Canada and is one the US doesn’t want back! He is all yours Justine!  http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/edmonton-attacks-abdulahi-sharif-hasan-attempted-murder-border-crossing-united-states-1.4330527

International and domestic laws in most countries require governments to allow their own citizens entry.

“But some countries are refusing to provide travel documents to their citizens or are just outright refusing to take them back,” Scott Bardsley, spokesman for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, told AFP.

[….]

According to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), the current backlog of foreign nationals facing deportation from Canada tops 15,000.

[….]

The removal list includes rejected refugee claimants and persons deemed inadmissible because of a criminal background or because they pose a national security threat.

[….]

China, India, the United States, Nigeria, Haiti, Pakistan, Mexico, Somalia, Cuba and Jamaica are the top countries of origin on Canada’s deportation list.

Go here for my Canada category.

US Bishops lambast Trump over closure of Central American Minors program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 12, 2017

As we told you the other day, the Trump Administration has closed a completely illegal program at the US State Department that was created out of thin air by Obama’s team in 2014.

Obama had taken it upon himself to simply write refugee law!

Besides the fact that youths (mostly male teens) flooding north from Central America are economic migrants and in some cases escaping violence, they are NOT refugees who must prove they were being persecuted for race, religion, political persuasion etc. to be legitimate refugees. Escaping violence is not a criteria in the internationally understood definition of a ‘refugee.’

Bishop immigration

Vasquez: Ending the program perpetuates family breakdown, never mind that the parents didn’t stay home with their children! And, the parents can go home to embrace their children at any time!

And, of course, no where in this whiny article at Catholic News Service does it mention that the Bishops Migration Fund is nearly 100% funded by taxpayer dollars. See here.

They NEVER mention their federal funding to take care of the “children.”

Here is Bishop Joe Vasquez of Austin, head of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Migration:

Vasquez offered prayers for those affected.

“We continue to pray and express our support for parents who endure anxiety and emotional hardship knowing their children will continue to languish in violence; and to the children themselves, who will not be able to reunite and embrace their parents,” he said.

The next time someone says something like this in your presence ask, so if that parent was so concerned about the welfare of his or her children, why did they leave the child in a hell hole and illegally go to the US for a better life for themselves?

And, if they are so worried now they could reunite easily—in their home country.

The illegal parent here in America is responsible for reuniting his own family by going home!

Canadian Libs too funny! Want to persuade asylum seekers from US to stay away

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 10, 2017

Calling it “irregular migration,” Canadian members of Parliament are coming to the US to try to stem the flow of US excess aliens from moving north into Canada.

The funny part (besides the fact that they can’t even use the word “illegal”) is that it was only a few days ago we reported that Canada was boosting dramatically its immigration numbers over the next three years because Canadians were getting just too old! Why don’t these Haitians fit the bill?

LOL! on that point did you see that Poland is taking a different route to change their demographic make-up with a campaign to their own Polish people called “breed like rabbits!”

Back to Canada where apparently Canadians of European ethnicity don’t want to breed like rabbits and others don’t want illegal aliens crossing their southern border ‘irregularly’ either.  Check out one of the MPs coming to America to try to turn back the flow!

 

Canadian MP

Haitian-born Liberal MP Emmanuel Dubourg will be travelling to New York next week to try to persuade other Haitians to not come to Canada.  Why can’t these new Haitians be part of  welcoming Canada’s one million by 2020!

 

From CBC News:

Members of Parliament are planning trips to the U.S. in the coming weeks to try to stem a potential new flow of asylum seekers to Canada.

Haitians who have been living in the U.S. under temporary protected status since the 2010 earthquake are facing potential deportation in the new year unless the U.S. Department of Homeland Security renews their status by Nov. 22, which it is not expected to do.

“We don’t know what the U.S. will do to remove those people so we are doing messaging and using social media,” said Emmanuel Dubourg, Liberal member of Parliament for the Bourassa riding in Quebec.

Dubourg said he and two other MPs will be going to the U.S. in the next two weeks to try to dissuade asylum seekers from Haiti, Africa, Central America and elsewhere from trying their luck in Canada in the same way that thousands of others have in the past year: by walking across the U.S.-Canada border at unofficial crossing points and applying for asylum once they get to Canada.

The RCMP has intercepted more than 15,000 asylum seekers crossing illegally between official ports of entry since January, the bulk of them in Quebec during the months of July through September.

“The main reason is to tell them we have a robust immigration law and that they should use the right channels to come to Canada instead of crossing in between the borders,” Dubourg said of his planned trip.

More here for your second (rabbits were first) laugh of the day!  Another Canadian MP making the trip is from Argentina.

I’m sure the Haitians know very well that the “robust” immigration law in Canada is anything but “robust” and fast enough for them.

BTW, do you think the Open Borders Libs make a point of trying to get the word “robust” inserted in to everything they say, or are they just so accustomed to parroting each other that it flows from their lips without thought.

Obama’s illegal program for illegal minors ended last night

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 10, 2017

Do you remember the program the Obama State Department created out of whole cloth in 2014 when it took it upon itself to write refugee law without the Congress?

It was called CAM for short and was supposed to help the minors escaping poverty and gangs in Central America get into the US as refugees so they wouldn’t get hurt sneaking across the border as they had been doing by the tens of thousands.

 

beast train with sleeping bags

Obama’s State Department created the program so that the invading “children” wouldn’t get hurt or exploited trying to get to America on the “Beast Train” or on foot.

 

The program had a couple of major flaws—first is that the kids were hard-pressed to show they were legitimate refugees fearing persecution and secondly, the parent filing the application in the US had to prove they were here legally (oopsy!).

The good news is that CAM has been canned at the Dept. of State as of last night!

From Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. State Department will stop accepting new applications at midnight on Thursday for a program that allowed children fleeing violence in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to apply for refugee status in the United States before leaving home.

President Donald Trump’s administration told Congress in September it would phase out the Central American Minors (CAM) program during fiscal year 2018, which began on Oct. 1.

New applications will not be accepted after 11:59 p.m. EST on Thursday (0459 GMT on Friday), the State Department said in a statement on Wednesday night.

The CAM program started at the end of 2014 under former President Barack Obama as a response to tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors and families from Central America who arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border seeking asylum in the United States.

Continue here where Reuters says that 1,500 kids got in out of 13,000 applications (imagine what that must have cost taxpayers to process 13,000 applications!).

For more, search RRW for ‘Unaccompanied minors’ or ‘Unaccompanied alien children.’
