New Hampshire: More on that interstate Somali refugee gang violence

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 15, 2018

Just as I hit publish on my previous post about the Somali gang members who traveled hundreds of miles to shoot up a Concord, NH wedding on April 22nd, I saw that the Union Leader had an update two weeks later.

Update!

Somalis arrested in NH

From left, SALIM HUSSEIN, ABDI MOHAMED, ALI HUSSEIN and JAFAR ISSAK (Salim Hussein and Jafar Issak are still in custody). Good luck getting the other two back for trial after they posted ridiculously low bail.

 

(Apologies to any readers who might have alerted me to this story and I missed your e-mail!)

Here is more of the stunning story from the Union Leader (the title I think downplays the seriousness of the event):

NH wedding parking-lot brawl traces back to Ohio street gang grudges

Are armed Somali gangs now roaming America instigating violent confrontations?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 15, 2018

Sure looks like it!  This story from New Hampshire is jaw-dropping.  And, maybe just a bit more astounding is that it happened in late April and we are just hearing about it.

Why on earth does no national news ever tell the wider public about shocking events like this one!

 

Somalis arrested in NH

From left, SALIM HUSSEIN, ABDI MOHAMED, ALI HUSSEIN and JAFAR ISSAK

 

Leo Hohmann has the news (the small amount that is available!) on the confrontation when Somalis from Nashville, TN, Columbus, OH and Erie, PA descended on a wedding party of 300 causing a riot as shots were fired.  And, they think they are going to run America someday…what a joke!

Diversity is beautiful alert!

Here is a bit of the story at LeoHohmann.com:

Imagine you’ve met Mr. or Mrs. Right and you go to the altar, say your vows, and just as you start to celebrate your big day, several members of a gang show up to your wedding party uninvited and start shooting.

That’s what police say happened recently in Concord, New Hampshire.

Four men, at least three of them with Somali names, crashed a wedding party on April 22 at the Bektash Temple, where they wore red bandanas associated with a criminal street gang known as the Bloods, “yelled profanities and fired gunshots during a melee in the parking lot,” police told the Concord Monitor.

There were a number of “rivaling” groups, likely gangs, who somehow ended up at the wedding party uninvited, police said. This created a toxic atmosphere where violence was a fate accompli, according to court documents. Police said at least two of the men came armed with handguns and “looking for a fight.”

The remainder of the story is here!

***Update*** Don’t miss more details, here.

If you are looking to thank those responsible, look no further than Catholic Charities, Evangelicals at World Relief, Church World Service, and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society and others of the big nine resettlement contractors all of which have promoted the resettlement of over 100,000 Somalis to America in the last 3 decades.

The nine contractors….

The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare)!  From most recent accounting, here.

If you are wondering, I post this list every chance I get because we have new readers daily and because I want all of you to know that for reform to be possible these nine fake non-profits have to go. Tell that to the President!

US refugee contractor David Miliband wading ever deeper into British Brexit politics, so….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2018

….where is his resignation announcement from the International Rescue Committee (one of nine federal refugee resettlement contractors***) where, from his perch in Manhattan, he sucks down a salary of nearly $700,000 a year partially funded by US taxpayers?

david-miliband-manahattan

Miliband in Manhattan

Make up your mind Miliband!

Why should American taxpayers support your dalliances in British politics?

From Sky News today:

David Miliband, Nick Clegg and Nicky Morgan warn against ‘hard Brexit’

Former foreign secretary David Miliband has urged all parties to come together to prevent a “hard Brexit”.

Saying “Europe is Britain’s anchor”, Mr Miliband made an impassioned speech saying he is “alarmed” at the state of negotiations on Britain’s exit from the EU.

Mr Miliband, an ex-Labour cabinet minister, shared a platform with Liberal Democrat former deputy minister Sir Nick Clegg and the Conservative chairwoman of the commons treasury committee, Nicky Morgan.

Miliband and soros 3

Miliband and George Soros

Speaking at a Tilda Rice Mill in Rainham, Essex, the trio repeated their statement from a joint article for the Mail on Sunday that Britain was being “held to ransom” by hardline Brexiteers.

They say a hard Brexit threatens jobs and living standards in the UK.

Mr Miliband, who now heads the New York-based International Rescue Committee aid agency, denied he was seeking to launch a new, centrist political movement when asked by the BBC Radio 4 Today programme.

More here.

Just a reminder to readers, this is a page from a recent Form 990 for the International Rescue Committee.

Tennessee appeals earlier dismissal of States’ Rights Refugee case

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 11, 2018

The only state in the nation to attempt to get some control back for the state when the federal government sends them refugees is appealing an earlier decision by a judge to dismiss the case.

This is the latest from the Tennessean:

Tennessee is appealing a federal judge’s dismissal of a lawsuit against the federal government over refugee resettlement.

logo thomas more

The Thomas More Law Center, which is representing the state in the case, filed a notice of appeal with the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee on Thursday.  

The case comes after state lawmakers approved a resolution in 2016 ordering the lawsuit.

Teatro

Stephanie Teatro, co-executive director of the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition, said the state’s appeal will “continue dragging our state’s reputation through the mud.”

In the case, Tennessee alleged the federal government violated the 10th Amendment, which says the federal government only possesses the powers delegated to it by the U.S. Constitution and that all other powers are reserved for the states.

When the lawsuit was filed in March 2017, Tennessee became the first state in the nation to sue the federal government on the matter using such grounds.

Tennessee argued that the federal government was not complying with the Refugee Act of 1980, which was designed to create a permanent procedure for the admission of refugees into the United States.

Lawmakers have previously said the lawsuit is necessary to halt all refugee resettlement to the state until all associated costs are paid by the federal government.

Organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee and the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition have frequently slammed the lawsuit, saying it will negatively affect the state’s refugee community and perpetuate a culture of fear.

More here.

Hissy fits in Australia as US says no to Iranians and Somalis in refugee deal

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 9, 2018

I’ve been having computer problems so this is going to be a quickie update on the “dumb” Australia refugee deal that we should never have entered in to with the Australian government.

Trump and Turnbull

Trump should have followed his first instincts and told Turnbull a flat out NO!

In January of 2017, Trump should have said NO! to the outrageous Obama arrangement for us to take off the Australians’ hands 1,250 of their detained refugee wannabes.

So now this is all dragging out with the Lefty press taking shots at the US each step of the way.

Rich Brit, Anish Kapoor, funding community organizing to promote refugees in North Carolina

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 9, 2018

The federal resettlement contractor, one of nine***—Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society—crows about their pro-refugee political advocacy campaign in a recent blog post on their website.

Titled:

In North Carolina, Local Advocacy Trainings Boost Action for Refugees

It is maddening isn’t it that the refugee industry is rolling in (foreign) money to promote more refugees for your towns, cities, states, but take heart and consider that grassroots efforts by patriots to educate the public about the downside of too much immigration in places like Minnesota (without funding for advocacy training by rich Brits) is having an impact as I said here the other day.

HIAS making plans for North Carolina…..

Refugee admissions from Africa and the Near East/South Asia way off the mark

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 8, 2018

While the Europe ceiling has been almost reached after 7 months.

As you know, the President set the CEILING for refugee admissions for Fiscal Year 2018 back in September at 45,000.

We are now 7 months in to that fiscal year and the US State Department database (maintained by contractor Wrapsnet) has a detailed accounting of who we have admitted and where they are from.

First, here (below) is a graph showing the CEILING and the actual monthly admissions numbers for the last ten years. On April 30th, the seven month mark, we have admitted 12,188.

When you go to Wrapsnet, here, this is data from a spread sheet found by clicking on this line under Admissions Reports: PRM Admissions Graph April 30, 2018.

(They usually update these numbers around the 5th of each month for the previous months of the fiscal year.)

The world is divided into 5 regions for the purpose of setting ceilings and admitting refugees.

See how many we have admitted so far….

Minnesota: Opposition to Welcoming America is growing….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 7, 2018

…..as more citizens are waking up to Leftwing community organizing tactics!

The Winona Daily News published a story last evening that is mostly meant to show that opposition to Welcoming America is coming from a bunch of nativist naysayers, but for me it shows how grassroots activists (paid by no one!) have been successful in educating small communities across the upper Midwest about the goals of the Soros-spawned Welcoming America community organizers.

Screenshot (441)

I first heard of Welcoming America in 2013 when they were a featured presenter at a meeting in Lancaster, Pennsylvania put on by the Obama Office of Refugee Resettlement.

The ORR had contracted them to beat back “pockets of resistance” to refugee resettlement.

You should take a moment to read that post.

It is a good thing I quoted the Soros connection directly from Welcoming America’s website at the time because that page is mysteriously absent from their site now!

For the really ambitious among you, please see my entire archive on Welcoming America and its founder David Lubell.  They are your classic, hard Left community organizers promoting diversity is beautiful for your towns (more Democrat voters and more cheap labor!).

But, it is more than that…..

They are changing America by changing the people!

And using taxpayer dollars to do it!

Catholic Charities of Minnesota drops refugee program; will take care of poor and homeless already among us

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 4, 2018

At least one of the major players in Minnesota’s refugee industry has woken up and smelled the coffee—gobs of federal money is not going to flow to the resettlement of more refugees to Minnesota, especially Somalis, in the foreseeable future.

One of the first questions people ask me when they first hear about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program and the imminent arrival of third world poverty to their home town/city is this:

Why are we doing this when we have so many poor and homeless people right here who need care?

It looks like at least Catholic Charities is getting the message, perhaps from many faithful Catholic parishioners (like Kate below!)!

The primary story on the news is at the Star Tribune headlined (hat tip: Joanne):

Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis cuts refugee resettlement, adoption programs

The charity will instead focus on fighting homelessness and helping at-risk kids.

But, there are many news outlets including Radio KNSI with the story as well.  I had to laugh when I saw this comment at KNSI:

Trump White House (again) thinking about moving refugee admissions OUT of State Department

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 3, 2018

The stated reason to consider moving the US Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) to the independent USAID is to save money by bringing our admissions program and humanitarian foreign aid together under one roof.

pompeo and tillerson

What will new Secretary of State Pompeo do? (outgoing Rex Tillerson appeared to have been hands-off when it came to refugees).

I’m in no position to judge the wisest place to move it, but I am eager to see the little fiefdoms fall and cozy relationships broken between resettlement contractors and DOS bureaucrats.

And, I have long maintained that refugee admission decisions should not be used as part of our foreign policy wheeling and dealing!

As early as 2012 (when the State Department did formerly invite comment on the program), I gave 10 reasons for a moratorium and this is my number seven:

7)   Congress needs to specifically disallow the use of the refugee program for other purposes of the US Government, especially using certain refugee populations to address unrelated foreign policy objectives—Uzbeks, Kosovars, Meshketians and Bhutanese (Nepalese) people come to mind.

If I were to write that today, I would be adding those Australian detainees we are magically transforming in to legitimate refugees for your American towns!

Either people are legitimate refugees deserving a shot at a better life and have no other options, or not. The program shouldn’t be used in any carrot/stick foreign policy wrangling.

But, that is exactly what a spokeswoman for the International Rescue Committee is arguing at Foreign Policy in a story entitled:

White House Weighs Taking Refugee Programs Away From State Department

Mike Pompeo’s first test could be a plan to remove refugee aid from Foggy Bottom
