Obama’s new program to create ‘refugees’ in Central America to be discussed in teleconference later this month

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 22, 2015

These are the train routes taken by the “children” last summer. Obama’s new plan is supposedly designed to keep the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ off the trains and put them into planes (airfare paid by you) with direct flights to cities across America. Map here: http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/mexicans-blame-americans-for-death-train/

 

 

The federal government is inviting you to a teleconference later this month to answer questions about the plan to bring kids directly from Central America to the US as refugees which then (as newly-minted refugees) will have all forms of welfare available to them, can bring family in later and become US citizens.   We told you about it in February.

Note that the media is not invited!

Dear Stakeholder,

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), in coordination with the U.S. Department of State (DOS), invites you to participate in a teleconference on Tuesday, March 31, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. (Eastern) to learn more about the Central American Minors (CAM) Refugee/Parole Program. The program provides certain children in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras with a safe, legal, and orderly alternative to the dangerous journey that some children are undertaking to the United States.

 

The CAM program began accepting applications from qualifying parents in the U.S. for their children on December 1, 2014. Only certain qualifying parents who are legally present in the U.S. are eligible to file for their children. Each qualified child must be unmarried, under the age of 21, and residing in El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras. In certain cases, the in-country parent of the qualifying child may also qualify for access if the in-country parent is the legal spouse of the qualifying parent in the U.S.

 

During this teleconference, representative from USCIS and DOS will provide an overview of the CAM program and answer questions.

 

To Join the Session by Phone

On the day of the session, please use the information below to join the teleconference.
We recommend that you call 10-15 minutes before the start time.

Toll-free call-in number: 1-888-606-7035

Ten things your town needs to know when (if!) “welcoming” refugees for the first time

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 11, 2015

As we have been writing ad nauseam lately, the Obama Administration is now out of the shadows with its plan to “seed” towns and cities across America with diversity.

‘Seed’ is their word!  Your community is the soil into which the migrants of all sorts (legal and illegal) are being planted according to Obama’s Task Force on New Americans.   It begs the questions:  Are we being colonized?  Do they plan to replace us some day?  Sound far-fetched?  Knowing Obama, are you willing to gamble on that?

President Barack Obama, flanked by Cecilia Muñoz, director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, left, and senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett are changing the people by ‘planting’ immigrant “seedlings” in towns across America!

We have long maintained a ‘fact sheet’ about how the UN/US State Department’s Refugee Admissions and Resettlement Program works, click here to learn more.

But, I realized yesterday, while thinking about the newest proposed seed community*** in Rep. Trey Gowdy’s backyard in Spartanburg, SC, that we needed a quick primer on what elected officials and citizens should know if they are being pressured to ‘welcome the stranger‘ (this guilt-tripping language is one way they pressure your town!).

So here are my Ten Things you need to know!

1)  In most cases, the United Nations is choosing our refugees.  Topping the list right now are Iraqis, Burmese, Congolese, Somalis and Bhutanese.  The UN is pressuring the US to take a large number, 10,000 or so, Syrians.  We are bringing in refugees from countries which hate us.  Your town does not get to choose who you get!  You will receive racially, culturally and religiously diverse people, usually very different from your local population and very different from each other.  That old ‘melting pot’ concept is dead because the numbers are too high.

2)  Often the US State Department’s chosen resettlement contractor for your town, sounds like a church group, or other benign-sounding non-profit.  They may have a religious-sounding name, but know that they are being paid by the head from the federal treasury to bring refugees to your town.  It is not the case that they are passing a plate on Sunday morning to pay for this very expensive program. Here are the nine major contractors which have 350 subcontractors working for them (headquartered in over 180 cities so far).

3)  The contractor’s job is to get the refugee family their “services.”  That means they hold the refugees’ hands until they are settled usually in tax-payer subsidized housing, get them signed up for most forms of welfare including food stamps and other cash assistance, sign them up for health care and enroll the kids in school. This special class of legal immigrant is entitled to welfare!  The contractor is also paid with your tax dollars to give refugees job counseling and training.  The contractor may also be working closely with some big business (and the Chamber of Commerce) nearby which is looking for cheap labor.

4)  The contractor’s job ends in 3-6 months at which point they move on to bringing in the next fresh group of “clients,” often the relatives of the first group.  Earlier, and still struggling, refugees are left in the care of your social services department. At this point the contractors are entrenched in your town and will call you racists, rednecks and xenophobes if your citizens want to slow the flow.

5)  Your town will never get out of the program once the contractor has an office set up and staff to pay.  Many cities are trying to get out now and can’t:  Manchester, NH, Springfield and Lynn, Mass, Amarillo, TX come to mind. Because there have developed “pockets of resistance” (their words), the State Department is desperately out scouting for fresh territory.

6)  The greatest impact on your local social and economic welfare will be felt first in the school system, followed usually by the shortage of government subsidized housing.  Your school system may end up with 50 or more languages represented in the student population.  The number-one language of refugees entering the US right now is Arabic, Somali is number four.

7)  Refugees are permitted entry into the US with HIV/AIDS and Tuberculosis among other medical problems.  Physical and mental health challenges will most likely overburden your local health department.

8)  Your local government is responsible (Clinton-era Executive Order) for providing costly interpreters for the myriad languages being spoken in the school system, the health system and the criminal justice system should problems arise.

9)  Refugees who do find work, work at entry level jobs and minimum wage so they will still be able to benefit from many welfare programs open to low-income Americans.  Elder refugees are eligible for SSI.   The refugees are Legal Permanent Residents and can begin the citizenship process quickly.

10)  If they say they are coming to your town with the first group of refugees, there is only one thing you can do!  ASK QUESTIONS IN PUBLIC.  Demand that your elected officials get involved. Demand that a community meeting be held, for the US State Department, the Office of Refugee Resettlement (in HHS), your state refugee office (if there is one) and their contractors, to answer questions from the citizens of the town or city. Get your Member of Congress and US Senators involved too!  Don’t forget your state legislators!   The State Department and its contractors HATE to answer questions!  Tell your local elected officials you want a public hearing!  Tell your elected officials that you want the federal government and its contractors to provide a plan!

You want them to answer questions such as these below. 

Remember you have every right to know what is being planned for your town.  They will bully you, call you names and say you can’t stop them anyway, but refuse to be bullied!

Demand answers (in public)!

Who is coming?  From where and how many?

Will they stop the resettlement if the town is becoming economically or socially stressed?

What security and health screening have the refugees undergone?

How many will come each year?

Who is paying for their health care?

Who is paying to educate the children who don’t speak English and may never have attended school?

Does your town have an adequate supply of government-supported housing?  Will demands for housing crowd out American elderly, poor or disabled citizens?

Where will they work?  Do we have high unemployment already?

I’m sure you can think of others.  After getting answers (good luck!) and having a vigorous public discussion, then your town can decide based on all the facts whether you will eagerly “welcome” New Americans to your community, or not.

Endnote:  There are other refugee experts in the country, so let me know if I’m missing anything here and I’ll add it!

Update!!!  Call this #11: an experienced researcher just reminded me that concerned citizens must form a citizens’ group to research the structure of the program in your state to obtain the FISCAL and legal facts about the program as the structure can vary from state to state.

*** This post (on Spartanburg) brought in the highest number of readers we have ever had for one post over a brief two days!  P.S.  I will be in South Carolina this coming weekend, here.

An afterthought:  If you should get a public meeting/hearing be sure to educate yourselves on the Delphi Technique, a strategy often used by government agencies wishing to control the outcome of a meeting.  Go here to see what Judy said about it in advance of the public meeting held in Hagerstown, MD in September 2007.

US Conference of Catholic Bishops wants US to do more for Syrian refugees; mum on how many to resettle

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 10, 2015

A delegation of Catholic leaders and one of their chief Washington ‘advocates’ (Anastasia Brown) traveled to Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey recently and concluded that we need to send the UN more money for ‘refugees’ in those countries and resettle more here.

For new readers, the USCCB is the largest of the nine resettlement contractors*** planting seedlings (aka New Americans) (Obama Administration lingo, not mine!) in your towns and cities.

98% of the Bishops migration program is funded by you, the US taxpayer.  Did you pay for their trip to Europe?  You must have because I doubt very much that they passed a plate in your parishes for their travel money!

That is Bishop Elizondo leading a pack of priests at the US border in April 2014. Were they inviting the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ to come on in? https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/06/26/us-catholic-bishops-chairman-kids-coming-across-border-should-be-viewed-as-refugees/

Missing from the press accounts and their report (under the auspices of Bishop Most Reverend Eusebio Elizondo, chairman of the USCCB)  is any criticism of the Obama Administration for moving slowly on Syrians.  The USCCB and the other refugee contractors beat Bush up every month for over a year when he wasn’t moving fast enough to bring in Iraqis back in 2006 and 2007.

Bishop Elizondo testified to Congress a year ago: 15,000 Syrians now!

Also missing (or at least I didn’t see it), is any mention of the fact that the Bishops testified in Congress in January 2014 that they wanted the US to bring in 15,000 Syrians a year.

Here is a report on Bishop Elizondo’s testimony to Congress a year ago at Catholic Culture:

Noting that the number of Syrian refugees has risen from 550,000 in October 2012 to 2.3 million today, the chairman of the United Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration urged the Congress to increase aid to Syrian refugees, permit 15,000 Syrian refugees to enter the country, and to encourage other nations to welcome refugees as well.

Here is a press account at Independent Catholic News about the recent trip and report:

The Syrian refugee crisis – now totaling nearly four million refugees- has reached a “tipping point,” in which countries in the region are no longer able to handle the flow of refugees across their borders, warns US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) officials who recently traveled to the Middle East.

“Without more international support, we will find Syrians fleeing extremists being turned away and forced back to danger,” said Anastasia Brown, interim executive director for USCCB’s Migration and Refugee Services (MRS).

“The global community, led by Europe and the United States, needs to increase its support in order to prevent a humanitarian crisis.” A delegation of USCCB officials which visited the region in late 2014, released their report March 6. Entitled “Refuge and Hope in the Time of ISIS: The Urgent need for Protection, Humanitarian Support, and Durable Solutions in Turkey, Bulgaria, and Greece,” the report looks at the plight of Syrians in the three countries, a growing trek for Syrians attempting to reach Europe.

[….]

The delegation’s report lists several recommendations to address the crisis, including increased refugee assistance and resettlement.

By the way, they also say we need to help those three countries—Turkey, Bulgaria and Greece—with their overload of so-called ‘refugees’ (really most are economic migrants) from other countries who have arrived as illegal aliens to those three already besieged countries.

The report recommends that the US and the EU resettle more Syrians and other refugees (from those three countries) including Iraqis, Afghans, Congolese, Somalis, Eritreans, Sudanese and others, but falls short of saying how many.

Readers remember that the number of Syrians entering the US will be falling way short of the 15,000 the Bishops had been dreaming of when the FBI testified to Congress recently that there is no way to properly screen the Syrians for security concerns.

And, don’t miss ‘Bishops between a rock and a hard place’ here.  When you take Caesar’s money, Caesar owns you!

*** The federal resettlement contractors (almost completely funded by US taxpayers) looking for new resettlement sites.  And, it wasn’t just the Bishops asking for over 10,000 Syrians a year to be admitted to the US, several other testified in Congress for more Syrians, here.

Migrant “integration” vs. “assimilation,” how the Obama Administration is changing the language with devastating results

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 9, 2015

….But, it wasn’t just Obama, according to the prescient Tom Tancredo, writing here in 2013, the subtle change in what we expect of immigrants to America has been going on for more than a decade.

Author, and former Congressman Tom Tancredo saw it all coming while “good citizens and patriots were asleep at the wheel.” How frustrating it must be to know Americans weren’t listening (and still aren’t!).

In revelations about Obama’s Task Force on New Americans, that we first mentioned here (and noted the love affair with the word “integration”), we begin to see the full-flowering of how Obama and the Socialist Left is changing (or planning to change) every town in America! by planting “seedling” immigrants who will replace you some day.

Another word for what they are doing is “colonizing” America—start using that word!

(Also you will see in my next two posts how they are already out in the country “integrating” your towns and cities, and the new integration means getting the New Americans signed up for their welfare goodies!).

Before I get to Tancredo’s piece, reader Julia sent us these definitions for the words “integration” and “assimilation.”  Do you see the important difference?

By the way, the average American (or dumb Member of Congress, or dumb Republican Party leader) is going to hear the Obama propaganda about “integration” and think that sounds just peachy.

(n) integration, integrating, desegregation (the action of incorporating a racial or religious group into a community)

(n) assimilation (the state of being assimilated; people of different backgrounds come to see themselves as part of a larger national family)

Note that “integration” implies the community must do the the work, must change (you know the focus on soil!) while assimilation implies the work falls on the immigrant to change!

From World Net Daily (hat tip: Julia):

We haven’t heard much about assimilation of immigrants lately. If that seems odd, there is a reason for the silence.

There is no “assimilation debate” because assimilation as a policy goal of our civic culture has already been abandoned.

The new watchword is “integration.” The integration of immigrants has replaced assimilation in the lexicon of not only the United States government but the private-sector institutions dealing with immigration.

[….]

Yet, this makeover is not something that was started by the Obama administration. It has been under way for more than a decade, promoted by first multiculturalists in the universities, followed by foundations and immigration attorneys. The process went unnoticed because good citizens and patriots were asleep at the wheel.

No one protested this amazingly seamless transition, and no one has protested that the standards for the successful “integration” of immigrants into American society are very different from the old standards for measuring the success of assimilation. The result is that today, it is nearly impossible to question the status or success of assimilation.

 Read it all.

Everyone reading this piece needs to start demanding that immigrants ASSIMILATE!  Use the word!  Better still, it is time to demand a MORATORIUM!

Endnote:  Ever since we began writing RRW in 2007, we had a category called ‘community destabilization’ to archive posts like this one.  It has 928 posts in it, as of this writing.  Today we are adding a new category called ‘Colonization’ in addition to the milder-sounding destabilization.

‘Arab’ human rights group wants Yemen to be designated a Temporary Protected Status country

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 6, 2015

Our many new readers might not know about another LEGAL immigration program that is a sham.

Called Temporary Protected Status, it is anything but temporary.  The program basically works like this: big event, like a natural disaster or war, happens in a country, US then says anyone already in the US from that country doesn’t have to go home.  They can be here on a Visa or for some other reason (illegally?) and they then can apply for TPS and virtually never go home!

They can work, get drivers licenses, do anything a legal citizen can do except vote (and they are probably doing that too!).

LOL! And, right now all of those holders of TPS status are waiting for the Obama amnesty!

The group should more accurately be called: Arab Human Rights Council

 

So is it any surprise that a newly-formed Arab group—that calls itself AHRC (American Human Rights Council***), where surely the ‘A’ in reality stands for Arab—has asked the Obama Administration to designate Yemen as a TPS country!

Check out the list of TPS countries right now.  The designation usually lasts for 18 months and then is just simply renewed, time and time again!   Honduras has been on there since 1999, El Salvador 2001, and one of the most recent additions is Syria!

From the Arab Daily News:

(Dearborn, MI) March 4, 2015 – The American Human Rights Council (AHRC) urges the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), namely DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, to designate Yemen for Temporary Protected Status (TPS). In accordance with 8 U.S.C. § 1254a, the Secretary of Homeland Security may designate a foreign country for TPS due to conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country’s nationals from returning safely, such as an ongoing armed conflict.

[….]

“The reality in Yemen is truly tragic and our Yemeni brothers sisters deserve better. Given the dire situation in Yemen, and generosity of this country with foreigners from countries facing turmoil, it would be inhumane to remove Yemeni nationals from the US to Yemen. We urge Secretary Johnson to designate Yemen for TPS and urge our fellow human rights organizations to advocate for the designation as well,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC executive director.

There is more gobbledegook, here.

Hurry! Get those New Americans their citizenship before September 2016 (government grants fueling the process)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 5, 2015

Since I’ve been fixated on the Obama plan to replace (old) Americans with New Americans.  You know the “seedling” plan!   And, then we learned that there is even a non-profit group funded by big money foundations also pushing for immigrants to get their legal permanent resident status swapped for citizenship called the New Americans Campaign, you should know that your tax dollars are fueling the process!

As if it’s any surprise, we learned in our previous post that immigrants most often vote for the Democratic Party!

Citizenship class in Maryland run jointly by Casa de Maryland and AmeriCorps. Your tax dollars at work! http://www.citizenshipmd.org/classes/

From the Dept. of Homeland Security (USCIS) comes this pipeline flowing with your money to ‘non-profits’ to get those immigrants signed up pronto! before a deadline of September 2016 (gee, I wonder what the rush might be!).  (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum):

Citizenship and Integration Grant Program

On Sept. 18, 2014, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced the award of nearly $10 million in grants to 40 organizations that will help permanent residents prepare and apply for U.S. citizenship. Located in 24 states and the District of Columbia, these organizations will receive federal funding to support citizenship preparation services for permanent residents through September 2016.

[….]

Grant recipients are public or private nonprofit organizations with recent experience providing citizenship instruction and naturalization application services to permanent residents. They include public school systems, community and faith-based groups, adult education organizations, and literacy organizations.

Recipient organizations are geographically diverse and represent both traditional immigrant destinations and new immigrant gateways across 24 states and the District of Columbia. Grant recipients plan to provide citizenship instruction and naturalization application services to approximately 22,000 permanent residents from more than 50 countries. Grant recipients represent:

Eighteen of the top 20 states with the largest permanent resident populations (California, New York, Florida, Texas, Illinois, Massachusetts, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Washington, Michigan, North Carolina, Arizona, Ohio, Minnesota, Colorado, and Connecticut);

Eight of the top 10 metropolitan areas with the most new permanent residents in the past 10 years (New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, greater Washington, Chicago, Houston, Boston, and Atlanta); and

Nine of the top 10 states with the most naturalizations over the last two years (California, New York, Florida, Texas, Illinois, Virginia, Massachusetts, Georgia and Pennsylvania).

So who are the groups with their hands out to the feds through this one program (obviously, AmeriCorps has another funding stream).  We recognize many refugee resettlement contractors on the list.

US Census: Immigrant population boom happening now

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 5, 2015

This is the headline from the UK Daily Mail yesterday.  You may have already seen it:

White US children will be minorities by 2020 after immigrant ‘baby boom’, Census reveals

 

In the infographic linked below, the author of Diversity Explosion tells of all the warm and wonderful things that will come to America as diversity expands and blossoms—one of those wonderful new frontiers will happen with governance as the immigrants, we are told, will mostly register as Democratic voters!

 

Here are the first few paragraphs:

White children will be outnumbered by minority kids in the United States in just five years, new Census Bureau projections reveal.

This is the result of an ongoing trend of declining birth among white Americans and a baby boom among immigrant groups, as well as a surge in immigration.

By the year 2020, 50.2 percent of all children in the US are expected to be non-white, according to the Census. By 2044, whites will be outnumbered by minorities.

The Census study, released this week, predicts that by year 2060, nearly 20 percent of the population will be foreign born – thanks to an influx of 64million new immigrants.

The “seedlings” are sprouting at a rapid rate!  We are being replaced and Obama is one step ahead of us.

Read it all and see the graphs.  Be sure to click on the cute little infographic by Brookings where we are told in gleeful tones that the immigrants will vote Democratic (so as to get their government goodies?)!  See the book, here.

Scientific American: Global warming brought on the Syrian civil war, creating refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 5, 2015

Conflict in the Middle East all about global warming!

We think we have found the explanation as to why Obama won’t say “radical Islam” in relation to the head-chopping violence going on in Syria and Iraq.

Who knew!  It is really all about global warming not Islam!

As I sit here in March, snow storm swirling outside and temperatures predicted to drop to zero tonight, I’m reporting about how all those Syrian refugees on the march are the result of global warming!

From Scientific American:

Climate change can make storms stronger, cold spells longer and water supplies drier. But can it cause war? A new study*** published today in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences says drought in Syria, exacerbated to record levels by global warming, pushed social unrest in that nation across a line into an open uprising in 2011. The conflict has since become a major civil war with international involvement.  [Nothing whatsoever to do with Islam?–ed]

[….]

A number of research efforts in recent years have suggested that warmer temperatures and drought increase the risk of violent conflict around the world. A 2009 study found that over the past 30 years in sub-Saharan Africa, temperature rise correlated with an increase in the likelihood of civil war. A 2011 study implicated climate change in pushing up food prices in Egypt, fueling revolution there.

Grasping for straws! Climate ‘scientist’ Richard Seager: Drought created by global warming=Syrian civil war. Photo and bio: http://www.ldeo.columbia.edu/res/div

[….]

The U.S. Defense Department is taking the warning seriously. It issued a report last November declaring climate change a “threat multiplier” that will impact national security. When Scientific American asked Seager [Richard Seager–ed] if his group’s research supports that point of view he said, “Yes. It does. Climate change is very much a cause of concern for national, regional and international security and this study makes clear how that can work. The Syrian war has now taken on a life of its own…however, a drought made worse by climate change was one important factor that initiated the social unraveling.”

The article does mention the drought in California, but no explanation as to why the same pattern of violence isn’t happening there. Maybe not a high enough population of heat-sensitive Muslims (yet).

So, let’s see, if one accepts the premise that resources/food production are being depleted in certain parts of the world due to the ever-changing climate, then bringing hundreds of thousands of immigrants to America will do what?  What else!—bring violence and chaos to America even faster!

***You know what is so strange!  I wanted to see the Study itself and I get a notice that the study isn’t available!

More here at Slate as the news of this “study” spreads through the Leftwing media.

See our ‘Climate refugees’ category here.  We can chuckle, but for several years now the international Left has been predicting (agitating) that migrants moving in response to weather will be our next big wave of “refugees” as they work to expand the definition of what constitutes a refugee—someone you should “welcome” as a “seedling” to your town!

Twisted Dems use fear of terrorists coming across Southern border to pressure Members of Congress on Homeland Security vote

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 4, 2015

Grrrr!  These people are despicable.  99.9% of the time, the Democrats will claim the border is secure, move along, nothing to see, no terrorists sneaking across Obama’s border, but in the lead-up to the Homeland Security funding vote yesterday they directed robo-calls to key Republican districts telling constituents that their conservative Member of Congress was making them less safe.

This is from Think Progress (that rag funded with George Soros $$$ and created by John Podesta).

We told you last week about the recent Texas report here where we learned that aliens connected to Islamic terrorist groups were apprehended at the border.

Think Progress reports (Democrats Invoke Terrorists Crossing The Border In Robocall On Homeland Security Funding):

House Republicans averted a Department of Homeland Security shutdown Tuesday by approving a funding bill without any of the politicized moves to shut down Obama’s immigration executive action. But in the hours before the vote, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) sought to gin up support for the funding by calling constituents with a warning that terrorists were crossing the border.

The DCCC call targeted 29 “vulnerable” House Republicans, accusing them for holding up DHS funding at a time when “known terrorists are trying to sneak across the border.” According to the DCCC website, the robocall includes a transcript as follows:

This is [PERSON] calling from the DCCC. An alarming new report says that known terrorists are trying to sneak across the border, yet the Republican led Congress is refusing to fully fund the Department of Homeland Security. With so many threats at home and abroad, the Republicans in Congress should not be playing games with our national security.

Call Congresswoman McSally at XXX-XXX-XXXX and tell her enough is enough. Stop playing politics and fully fund the Department of Homeland Security.

The robocall did not specify the nature of the terrorist crossings. But a press release sent by the DCCC linked to a leaked Texas Department of Public Safety assessment, which found some evidence of “special interest aliens” caught trying to cross the southern U.S. border, individuals who came from countries with known terrorism ties. Arrests include Somali immigrants with connections to al-Shabab, the terrorist group that targeted the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya and another terrorist group known as Al-Itihaad al-Islamiya. The report also mentioned the arrest of high-profile cartel leaders based in Mexico.

“Republicans like Congresswoman McSally have allowed this dysfunction to go on long enough,” DCCC spokesperson Matt Thornton said in a press release. “With threats at home and abroad, the American people can’t afford another day of the Republicans’ political games and continued failure to govern. Since Republicans have such a bad track record, we wanted to ensure that voters would hold their members accountable.”

They are so disgusting as they go on to say, but it is O.K. because Obama has kept us safe at the border.

DC cabbie on FBI terror list arrested in Somalia, but was US Justice Department complicit in letting him leave US

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 3, 2015

The Somali (refugee!) cab driver was familiar with the Washington, DC Metro area and therefore extremely valuable to Al-Shabaab, so why did the Justice Department not move in on him sooner?

Heck, he has been gone from the US for almost three years and that is a lot of time to divulge what he knows to the Islamic (America-hating) killers with Al-Shabaab!

See our previous post last month, here.

Gee, maybe Mohamed even knows where Eric Holder lives!

Who in the US Justice Department overruled the FBI allowing Liban Haji Mohamed to leave the country?

 

Here is how the news at the Washington Post begins, but it is near the end where we learn the most significant piece of this story (I think they call this buryng the lead).  (Hat tip: Cathy):

A Northern Virginia man who fled the United States more than two years ago and was recently placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list is in the custody of the Somali government, U.S. officials said.

Liban Haji Mohamed, 29, was detained shortly after prosecutors unsealed a warrant for his arrest and the FBI added him to the wanted list in late January. It is unclear how he was taken into custody or how soon he could be brought back to the United States.

The former cabdriver is charged with providing material support and resources to al-Shabab, a U.S.-designated terrorist organization allied with al-Qaeda. He is suspected of having an operational role in al-Shabab and of trying to recruit people to join the group.

When FBI officials announced his inclusion on the most-wanted list, they said Mohamed was “an asset to his terrorist associates who might plot attacks on U.S. soil.” Officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation, noted that he had detailed knowledge of potential targets in Washington.

Unbelievable!

U.S. law enforcement had been attempting to track Mohamed, a naturalized U.S. citizen, before he slipped out of the country and into Mexico on July 12, 2012. The case had frustrated FBI agents who strongly believed Mohamed should have been charged with material support of terrorism while he was living in Fairfax County.

Some federal prosecutors in the Eastern District of Virginia were willing to do so, though they were overruled by others at the Justice Department, officials said.

Heads should roll over this decision!

For new readers we are admitting over 800 Somalis into the US each month right now!
