Fox News special features Christian Iraqis entering US illegally across our southern border

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 29, 2015

For those of you who have contacted me to see what I know about Mark Arabo, the Iraqi Chaldean man helping Iraqi/Syrian Christians get across our southern border illegally with the help of Mexican coyotes, I don’t have much to say at the moment.

See Fox News special:  ‘Christians Find Refuge from Terror in Jordan.’

We do know that the normal channels for Syrian refugees to enter the US are clogged with mostly Sunni Muslim ‘refugees’ chosen by the UN, but I remain very suspicious of anyone working with Democrats to further more illegal activity at our borders and especially those expanding the use of asylum.

For new readers, once granted asylum, these migrants become legitimate refugees and as such receive all forms of welfare and eventually a green card and citizenship.

Arabo and others like him should be pressuring the Obama State Department to prioritize Christian refugees in the official Refugee Resettlement Program over the thousands and thousands of Iraqi and Syrian Muslims we presently admit, rather than break the law at the US border.

And, I’m too pressed for time to look up the numbers, but we have brought in roughly 30,000 Iraqi Christians since Obama took office in a stream of about 120,000 Iraqis (mostly Muslims) in the normal Refugee Admissions Program.  Did all of Arabo’s illegal border-crossers first try for that program?  Were they somehow rejected?  I would like to know!

We have been watching the ‘invasion of Europe’ for years now as mostly African and Middle Eastern phony asylum seekers break into Europe.  Is it about to happen here in a big way?  Could Islamic extremists simply pretend to be Christians? Is Arabo a NO borders activist with an angle?  We have a lot of questions!

We’ll see what else we can find out….

Christians in Iraq utter desperate plea to the West: Destroy ISIS or open your doors and save us!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 13, 2015

Just as the US Conference of Catholic Bishops lobbies Congress and the White House to admit 65,000 Syrian refugees (over 90% will be Muslims) a Catholic cleric in Iraq begs the West to save the Christians from the Muslim invaders.

You can bet I’ll be watching to see if the US Bishops say a word about their fellow Christians.

If any of you see a statement (other than a few words of sympathy) from the Bishops, please let me know.  I have never seen one of the nine contractors say that we must first save the Christians!

Imagine what an earth-shaking event it would be if the federal resettlement contractors refused to resettle Muslims while Christians in Iraq were being persecuted.

From World Net Daily today (emphasis is mine):

A leading Iraqi prelate has called on the U.S. and its allies to double down on their efforts to defeat ISIS militarily, and, if that is not possible, to rescue Iraq’s 120,000 exiled Christians and grant them asylum in the West.

[….]

Archbishop Mouche [Syrian Catholic Archbishop Yohanna Mouche] said if the West is unable or unwilling to expand its military options against ISIS, then it should open its doors to Christians and other minorities seeking asylum.

“I am calling on the international community: if they cannot protect us, then they must open their doors and help us start a new life elsewhere,” he said.

But “we would prefer to remain in Iraq and be protected here,” he added.

[….]

The United States, which accepts the majority of the world’s refugees and asylum seekers, has taken in 119,210 refugees from Iraq since 2008, but 72,983 or 61 percent of those have been Muslims and only 42,000 or 35 percent have been Christian, according to U.S. State Department data.

As for the other major Middle Eastern source of refugees, Syria, the numbers are even more slanted toward Muslims. Among the nearly 850 Syrian refugees sent to the U.S. for permanent resettlement since the outbreak of the Syrian civil war, 92 percent have been Muslim and less than 6 percent Christian.

[….]

Christians pose no security risks, yet they have been left largely to fend for themselves, said Joel Richardson, author and filmmaker who has recently been on missions trips to Iraq.

“There’s no question we need to open our doors to the Christians of Iraq,” he told WND. “There’s been a lot of anecdotal evidence that within Congress and the various departments and channels that oversee U.S. immigration that for some mysterious reason we’re putting up these roadblocks that prevent these Christians from coming to the U.S. when we’re morally obligated to let them in particularly in light of the fact that there is zero security risk and most of their plight can be attributed to the foreign policy blunders of the U.S. State Department under Barack Obama that was led by Hillary Clinton.”

[….]

While the Christian refugees of Iraq pose no security risk, the loudest voices in the refugee resettlement industry, such as former U.K. Foreign Minister David Miliband, who now heads the International Rescue Committee, have lobbied in recent months almost exclusively on behalf of the Syrian refugees. Miliband and others have said the U.S. needs to take in at least 65,000 Syrian refugees by the end of 2016.

This same demand — for the U.S. to accept 65,000 Syrian refugees — has been made by the Refugee Council USA, the main lobbying arm of the nine agencies that do the resettlement work under contract for the U.S. government.

There is much more in this exclusive report, continue reading here.

Bowling Green, KY: Arrests made in Sunni vs. Shiite tussle

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 31, 2015

Hmmmm!

So where is Rand?

Did Grover get to Rand Paul? Or, was it big business donors (meatpackers maybe?) who caused Paul to go wobbly on the refugee issue?

Daniel Greenfield writing at Frontpage magazine directs us to a brief news story from Presidential candidate Rand Paul’s home town.

Here is Greenfield:

Welcome to Bowling Green, Kentucky, the latest front in the Sunni – Shiite unholy war tearing apart the Middle East.

He then directs us to this news story about how a Shia Muslim claims he was assaulted by a Sunni Muslim in a dispute about their religious beliefs.

Then Greenfield closes with this:

Now how many Sunnis and Shiites do you need for there to be enough critical mass for these conflicts to turn violent? 

Why is this so interesting to me? 

The article does not tell us the nationalities of the two who scuffled, but I will bet a buck they were both Iraqis because we know many Iraqis have been resettled in Kentucky including those two refugee terrorists arrested in Bowling Green in 2011, on trial here in 2012.

At that time there was a glimmer of hope for Senator Rand Paul on this issue as he was very vocal in asking:  Why are we bringing so many Iraqis to the US?  See this post!  I was originally thrilled!

Now he has completely shut up on the issue!

By the way, Kentucky is an important refugee resettlement state and neither Senator Mitch McConnell or Senator Paul say a word about it.

The US State Department is admitting almost equal numbers of Shiite and Sunni Iraqis to the US, so you can expect more conflicts ahead!  Is that insane or what!

Again, we don’t know if these two Bowling Green squabblers are Iraqis, but this (below) will give you some idea of our foolishness.  I couldn’t get the State Department data base to open just now, but found my notes from a search  I did at the beginning of March.

From 1/1/14 to 2/28/15 (a little over a year) we admitted 22,446 Iraqis to your towns and cities.  The State Department data breaks them out by religion as follows:

Moslem (that is how they spell it): 351

Moslem Shiite: 7,747

Moslem Suni: 9,176

So the Muslims totaled:  17,274

All the other religions, or no religion accounted for the remaining 5,172 (23%).

So, is this kerfuffle in Kentucky the tip of the iceberg?  We’ll see!

See our Kentucky archive here, and don’t miss this post about the suspicious donation (for Syrian refugees) to a contractor from a Muslim “charity.”  See also Kentucky mosques cropping-up due to growing Muslim refugee population.

Make this issue (immigration and national security) a top concern for 2016 Presidential candidates!

If you have an opportunity to meet candidates ask them what their position is on refugee resettlement (look for a deer-in-the-headlights look!).

See NumbersUSA scorecard, here.  Paul has an abysmal D+ on immigration and jobs.

About the photo:  One of the earliest important stories we ever wrote nearly 8 years ago was about Grover Norquist lobbying for large numbers of Iraqi refugees to be resettled in the US.   And, see Grover here with RINO pals (including Jeb Bush) just last year urging the GOP to support the idea of more refugees coming to America!  Grover has been spreading the lie that Ronald Reagan signed the Refugee Act of 1980 into law. He is wrong.  It was outgoing President Jimmy Carter who is responsible.

Michigan: Overloaded with Iraqi refugees, keeps state in top five resettlement states in the nation

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 21, 2015

Two nights ago I spoke with a group in Michigan—Southeast Michigan 912 Tea Party— and in advance did some digging into the data bases to see how the state was doing.  I was shocked to discover that over 18,000 Iraqis (among other refugees) have been resettled there since 2005.

Global Nation map

Note that these stats are from 2014. At this rate of resettlement, Michigan will get 40,000 refugees in the next ten years compared to the 29,000 it received in the last ten years.

Indeed in the last ten years, 29,141 refugees were resettled in Michigan and 18,505 were Iraqis.

I wondered what had happened to the US State Department’s 2008 ‘decision’ to slow the flow to Michigan?

Here is a headline and story from the Detroit News in October of 2008:

Iraqi refugees overwhelm Michigan relief program

Michigan’s economy is so bad that the State Department is sending fewer Iraqi refugees to the area because of concerns that their future would not be bright. [Never mind your future!—ed]

After a request by relief workers, the policy of bringing Iraqis to metro Detroit if relatives or friends live in the area was changed to allow only those with immediate family to settle here, according to the State Department.

“The State Department has taken the measure of things and decided it would be better to send them somewhere else, where they might be self-sufficient, instead of coming to Michigan, because the economy is very bad here, and we have the highest unemployment in the country,” Belmin Pinjic of Lutheran Social Services of Michigan said.

[….]

State Department officials said the policy change was implemented in late June partly because relief workers were having difficulty finding the refugees jobs.

But, see here, just a couple of months ago—despite high unemployment, refugees are still being poured into the state.  And, then most recently of course we reported that a dumb idea was floated by the New York Times to resettle 50,000 Syrians (mostly Muslim) refugees in Detroit.  How did we go from (2008) too many refugees would strain the economy, to 2015—refugees will cause the economy to recover?

Kentucky Iraqi terrorist bust slowed the flow slightly in 2011

As I searched the data bases I noted that there was never actually any slow down in the number of refugees resettled in Michigan despite the 2008 promise by the US State Department to do so.

There was a noticeable drop in Iraqis in 2011, but LOL! that was because the US State Department and Homeland Security discovered they had admitted at least two Iraqi refugee terrorists (caught in Kentucky—oopsy!) and thus security re-screening slowed the flow that year.

Here is what I learned about the number of refugees arriving in Michigan.

Of the total refugee load since 2005 (29,141), Iraqis topped the list by far at 18,505.  Previous research concludes that about 3/4th of all Iraqis entering the US are Muslims.  Religious minorities make up the other 1/4th.

After the Iraqis, the next too ethnic groups are Burmese (4,261) and Somalis (1,431).  Of the 800 or so Syrians resettled so far in the US, 49 went to Michigan.  The Somalis were mostly resettled in Lansing and Grand Rapids.

Then this really surprised me—Iraqis were resettled (“seeded”) in 98 towns in Michigan!

Here are the top ten Iraqi resettlement cities in the state (since 2005):

Southfield (4,427)

Sterling Heights (3,860)

Troy (1,998)

Warren (1,355)

Madison Heights (947)

Lansing (720)

Dearborn (626)

West Bloomfield (554)

Ann Arbor (297)

Detroit (289)

Six of the top nine federal resettlement contractors are operating in Michigan (falling all over themselves!).  They are: Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (we bring only a tiny handful of Jews to the US as refugees, so they are resettling large numbers of Muslims, go figure!), Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Church World Service, Episcopal Migration Ministries, and the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants.  Find their office contact information here.

Readers, remember two things.  First there is “secondary migration” (here page nine) which means that in refugee resettlement lingo, refugees move within states and from state to state after initial resettlement.  And, secondly, there are other LEGAL immigration programs that are bringing refugees from the third-world, and from terror hotspots, to America.  I’m going to write about one of those this morning—the Diversity Visa lottery.  So, it becomes very difficult to get a really good idea of who is living next door!

Refugees stranded outside gates of Baghdad; fears of ISIS Trojan Horse

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 20, 2015

ISIS on the move!

The Daily Mail reported yesterday (hat tip: Kyle) that thousands of Iraqi refugees fleeing Ramadi are now trapped between the ISIS-controlled city and the safety of Baghdad.  (BTW, pundits speculate that Baghdad will fall too.)

 Over 20,000 innocent Iraqis are stranded in a deadly no man’s land between ISIS militants in Ramadi and potential safety in Baghdad 60 miles to the east, where they are cruelly being refused entry.

The terror group slaughtered over 500 people over the last few days to seize control of Ramadi – their biggest military victory in over a year – before holding a a twisted celebratory parade on its blood-stained streets.

The thousands who were forced from their homes are now living in the open – many without shelter and dwindling aid – in small towns like Amiriyat Fallujah on the outskirts of Baghdad.

Iraq’s military will not allow them to cross the Euphrates river and into the city because it can not confirm they are not ISIS militants, aid agencies in Baghdad have told MailOnline.

Kind of ironic isn’t it?

The US is bringing Iraqis to your towns and cities at the rate of 1,175 a MONTH at the moment.  But, we dare not mention the Trojan Horse analogy and are told to welcome them with open arms.

Where is the UN?  Isn’t it their job to go into these danger zones and help the people?

There is much more, with lots of photos, go here.

Related!  Tomorrow the House Homeland Security Committee (subcommittee chaired by Rep. Peter King) will hold a hearing on the security concerns many have about the admission of Syrian refugees to the US.  Go here for more.  Update: hearing postponed!

Kentucky: Iraqi refugee convicted terrorist back in the news; wants conviction and sentence reviewed

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 19, 2015

Update:  There is a 2013 ABC News expose of the arrest and conviction of these two refugees with information on how they lied to get into the US.  A long time reader suggested that many of you may never have seen it.  Watch it here.

He says he was misrepresented and didn’t understand English well enough (you can be sure he had been supplied with a translator!).

For you, in new towns being urged to ‘welcome the stranger’ and take in Muslim refugees, there are several lessons in this one short news story.

First, don’t believe them when they say that refugees are thoroughly screened! This pair of convicted terrorists LIED on their refugee applications and there was ample evidence, one not mentioned in this news story, that they were in fact fighting (and possibly killing) Americans in Iraq.  One of them had fingerprints on an IED shard the US had already collected from an attack on Americans.

Second, US and state taxpayers are footing the bill for translators and expensive trials and other legal proceedings.

And, third these two were placed by a resettlement contractor in an American town and you paid for it.  But, the media, in this case AP, cannot bring itself to tell readers that these two were REFUGEES.

Every reader of this AP story who is unfamiliar with the US Refugee Admissions Program is probably scratching their head and asking, well how did these terrorists get in here?

From AP at the Bowling Green Daily News (hat tip: Robin):

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — An Iraqi man convicted of terrorism charges in Kentucky is asking a federal judge to change his conviction and prison sentence because he says he was misrepresented by his court-appointed attorney.

Mohanad Shareef Hammadi pleaded guilty in 2012 to being involved in a plot to send weapons and money to al-Qaida in Iraq.

Hammadi says in a motion filed last month that he felt pressure to plead guilty to a dozen charges and was told by his attorney, James Earhart, he would not get a life sentence. He is asking a judge to throw out or correct the sentence.

The motion asks the court to “vacate, set aside or correct” the conviction and life sentence he received in January 2013.

[….]

Hammadi said in the motion that he was pressured to plead guilty the day before his jury trial. Earhart, a longtime lawyer and former federal prosecutor in Kentucky, told Hammadi “no American jury would find him innocent following the events of Sept. 11, 2001,” according to the March 16 motion.

The AP wants you to think that they just simply “arrived” in the US, not a word about the US State Department bringing them in!

Alwan and Hammadi arrived in the United States in 2009. Both admitted to taking part in insurgent activities in Iraq in 2005 and 2006. Prosecutors said federal authorities became aware of Alwan when they found out he had been held in an Iraqi prison in June 2006 for insurgent activities.

Searching RRW for ‘Kentucky Iraqi’ I see that we probably have a couple of dozen posts in which we mention these convicted refugee terrorists.   In fact, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul’s fleeting criticism of the refugee program was surely inspired by his anger at the time about this case.

If you see Rand Paul on the campaign trail, ask him why he stopped criticizing the Refugee Admissions Program!

Make this issue a 2016 Presidential campaign issue!  In fact, ask all of the candidates if they support it and I bet you get a ‘deer in the headlights’ look!

Paraguay: Iraqis and Syrians using fake Israeli passports caught entering the country

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 19, 2015

Because refugee problems are now cropping up in South America we have recently added a category for that continent, see previous stories hereHere is one post from February with a map of the routes being taken through South America and then to Europe.

This news is not new, we have learned that fake passports are the way many, especially Syrians these days, are illegally entering other countries.  Paraguay is worried that Israeli interests in their country could be attacked.

Here is the latest from Ynet News:

The Paraguay Police has arrested 11 Arab travelers since early March, most of whom citizens of Syria and Iraq, who were using forged Israeli passports to enter the country.

Syrians are traveling to Paraguay in order to get into Europe!

Paraguay’s Ambassador to Israel, Max Haber Neumann, updated the Israeli Foreign Ministry about the arrests.

Paraguay wants to expel the arrested travelers, but is having difficulties doing so as some of them are minors.

Customs officers in Paraguay were instructed to be more vigilant after similar cases of Israeli passport forgery were discovered in Spain, Uruguay, Ecuador and Colombia in February and in light of Israel Foreign Ministry warnings that terrorist groups might attempt to attack Israeli and Jewish targets in South America.

There were at least two attempts to attack Israel’s Embassy in Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, in recent months. In one of the cases, in early January, a small explosion was heard outside the Embassy. A bomb squad was called to the scene to neutralize the explosive device.

Paraguay Ambassador Haber Neumann said that it was his understanding the 11 arrested travelers were refugees from the Middle East who arrived in Latin America as a stop on their way to Spain or other destinations in the European Union.

In September of last year, two Iranians were arrested in Kenya on their way to Brussels with fake Israeli passports.

According to this story, Israeli passports are easy to fake, guess that means Israel better do something about that!

Rand Paul: Why are we bringing in all these refugees (Iraqis in particular) and putting them on welfare?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 7, 2015

I know you are saying that isn’t the Senator Rand Paul you know now, but it was the Senator Paul in the wake of the discovery of Iraqi refugee terrorists found in his home town and convicted in Kentucky just a few years ago.

As a matter of fact, I was thrilled!  He was the first sitting US Senator I had ever heard speak publicly and critically about the Refugee Resettlement Program of the UN/US State Department.

Did Grover Norquist get to Rand and tell him to shut up about Iraqi refugees in addition to urging him to support amnesty? http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/dgreenfield/norquist-bloomberg-and-rand-paul-team-up-for-dont-call-it-amnesty/

Here is our complete archive in which we mention Paul’s statements on refugees.  Please note that his home town of Bowling Green is completely swamped with refugees and we have a lengthy archive on problems there as well.

Here is what we said in 2013 when the Senator was roundly criticized by a Leftwing immigration reporter at the HuffPo.  This is what Huffington Post reporter, Elise Foley, quotes Paul saying:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said on Wednesday that the U.S. should be skeptical of accepting refugees, from Iraq in particular, because they take welfare and could plan attacks on American soil.

[….]

“It’s one thing to have a big heart and invite people to our country, and if you do it in a small fashion, the churches and the people take care of them, that’s one thing. But like in my town in particular, they bring ’em in and there is someone whose job and expertise is to sign them up for welfare as soon as they get here.”

There is more and links to other information on Paul.

So what happened to that Rand Paul?

Grover was a promoter of Iraqi refugees!

When we began writing RRW in 2007, one of our first stunning revelations was that Republican guru Grover Norquist was running around Washington lobbying for the US to bring in the Iraqis.   120,000 plus Iraqi refugees later, they are coming in at a rate of 20,000 a year (approximately 68% of them are Muslims split fairly evenly between Shiites and Sunnis).

They are receiving a boatload of welfare (see beginning on page 107 of the latest ORR Annual Report to Congress) higher than many other refugee ethnic groups.  So Senator Paul was right about that—we bring’em in and sign’em up for welfare!

For new readers, our complete Grover Norquist archive is here.

If you happen to see Paul on the campaign trail, ask him why he dropped his earlier criticism of the refugee resettlement program which is changing American towns and cities under the direction of the United Nations and Obama’s State Department.

Detroit: Despite high unemployment, Lutherans and feds still pouring refugees into the area

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 19, 2015

This starts out as the usual feel-good fluffy-puffy story about a happy Iraqi refugee landing in Detroit, Michigan, but there are some very interesting nuggets of information that appear mid-story.

From the National Journal:

Detroit’s suburbs have absorbed tens of thousands of Iraqi refugees in recent years after violence erupted in the wake of the war. The established Arab community in Detroit has made it the top destination for Iraqi refugees—and that, in turn, has made Michigan one of the states receiving the largest influx of refugees.

Protestors in Dearborn: A large number of Dearborn’s Muslims are on US Terror Watch List. From Jihad Watch http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/08/dearborn-residents-on-terrorist-watch-list-second-only-to-new-york

From 2010 to 2014, Michigan saw a 38 percent increase in the number of refugees moving to the state, according to data from the Health and Human Services Department. The vast majority are fleeing Iraq, where they faced violence and retaliation for working with U.S. troops during the war, like Al Saady, or because they belong to a religious minority. The number of Iraqi refugees arriving in Michigan nearly doubled in the last four years, with 2,751 arriving in 2014.

The growing number of refugees exacerbated the economic strain on Detroit communities as it struggled during the Great Recession. Refugees had trouble finding work, and staff was stretched thin at the social service agencies that help families resettle in the area. In 2008, the State Department started limiting Iraqi resettlement to Detroit to those who had immediate family members there. But many of those Iraqi refugees who have been resettled elsewhere in the years since still end up moving to Detroit anyway, says Mihaela Mitrofan, refugee-resettlement program manager for Lutheran Social Services of Michigan.  [Readers, it is called “secondary migration” in resettlement industry lingo. The Iraqis want to live with their own kind, as do the Somalis that flock to Minnesota, but God forbid you want to live with people you are culturally comfortable with!—ed]

“With everything that’s happening with ISIS, we anticipate another wave of refugees from Iraq and also Syria,” says Mitrofan.

Since the middle of 2007, Lutheran Social Services has resettled more than 8,000 Iraqi refugees in the Detroit area. Christian Iraqis are usually integrated into the large Chaldean community in the northern Detroit suburb of Sterling Heights. Chaldeans are a Catholic minority group in Iraq.  [Christians are only about 22-25% of the Iraqis we resettle.—ed]

Muslim Iraqis, like Al Saady, are usually sent to Dearborn, a suburb just southwest of Detroit that has provided a home for Arab-Americans of Lebanese, Palestinian, Yemeni, and other backgrounds for nearly 100 years. Lutheran Social Services runs a small office on the city’s main drag, above a hookah bar and across the street from a halal grocery store.

Getting them their welfare goodies as per the Obama colonizing plan!

One LSS staff member, Arjwan Khadoori, helped 13 Iraqis resettle in Dearborn this past January. Khadoori tracked down housing, took them to buy groceries, and guided them through the process of registering for Social Security cards, Medicaid, driver’s licenses, and food stamps. Each person also receives $925 in federal cash assistance to help tide them over until they find work.

Another staff member, Jawhar Altahesh, persuades employers to hire the refugees. This can be tough, he says, especially in an area with such high unemployment. Sometimes employers will accuse him of taking away jobs from Americans. Even Arab-American Muslims might not want to hire women or Shiite Muslims.  [By the way, we are bringing an almost equal number of Sunnis and Shiites out of Iraq.—ed]

“I tell them that’s against the law,” says Altahesh, “but it doesn’t matter.”

From November through January, the Dearborn office helped find full-time jobs for 30 of 50 refugees seeking employment in Wayne County.

Michigan received the 4th highest number of refugees in FY2014, here.

Newly resettled Iraqi refugee shot and killed in Dallas; was it a random killing by thugs, or something more?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 8, 2015

We will have to wait and see how the investigation unfolds, but my guess is that it will be a random shooting in a mixed neighborhood (the kind of neighborhood the federal refugee contractors always choose because of the cheap housing).  Or, do refugee contractors just think they can mix up all the different ethnic groups they bring in, drop them in low-income and minority neighborhoods and presto! multicultural nirvana will be found?

Ahmed al-Jumaili, 36, shot in apartment complex parking lot last Wednesday.

From the New York Daily News:

An Iraqi refugee who moved to Texas be in a “safer place” with his wife three weeks ago was fatally shot while watching his first snowfall Wednesday.

Ahmed al-Jumaili, 36, his wife and his brother were taking pictures of the snow outside their Dallas apartment complex when a group of men shot him at about 11:40 p.m., police said.

Al-Jumaili ran back to his apartment and later died at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, according to the Dallas Morning News. His relatives were not injured.

“Just like all of us, a pretty snowfall brings the child out in us,” Dallas police Maj. Jeff Cotner said. “You can just imagine the excitement between his wife and his brother and himself as they were enjoying the snowfall.”

Al-Jumaili and his wife, Zahara, married 16 months ago in Iraq, according to a fundraising page. She “made the painful and difficult decision to leave her husband in Iraq and come to, what she believed, to be a safer place.”

They reunited in Dallas 20 days ago after Al-Jumaili earned enough money to join her.

[….]

The surrounding Muslim community is demanding to know whether the shooting was a hate crime, Salem, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in the Dallas and Fort Worth area, told CNN.

Readers, send us a link if you see more news on who did it.

For reporters who might be interested in tracking down more on Al-Jumaili and the Iraqis being placed apparently in bad neighborhoods, go to this Handy State Department list of contractors.  Looks like 4 of the 9 major contractors have subcontractors that are falling all over each other to plant refugee seedlings in “welcoming” Dallas:  Church World Service, International Rescue Committee, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

By the way, if you didn’t know, Texas is the top refugee resettlement state in the nation.   Over 100,000 Iraqis, most of them Muslims, have been admitted to the US since the beginning of the Obama Administration.
