Trial opens in case of another Uzbek refugee charged with plotting terror in his home country

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 25, 2018

We remember when Jamshid Muhtorov was arrested attempting to leave the country in 2012 and I have wondered what the heck was going on that his case was not going to trial.

Jamshid-Muhtorov--30291984_3085_ver1.0_320_240

Why didn’t we just let him leave? Why was protecting the Uzbek government our problem?  Indeed, why was he here in the first place?

Before reading on, you might want to revisit another notorious case of an Uzbek refugee sentenced to prison in Idaho who subsequently tried to kill the prison warden where he had been incarcerated, see here.

Now to the story from Denver about Jamshid Muhtorov where we learn the trial delay was due to his lawyer’s efforts to challenge the use of information from NSA surveillance:

Trial underway for refugee who challenged NSA surveillance

See what I mean! The wailing for workers is the latest PR push for refugee industry; Virginia this time!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 24, 2018

On the heels of my post yesterday, here is the first of what surely will be many stories about how refugee workers are needed for meatpackers and hotel chains—this time in Virginia.

Chobani and Soros

The economic study being cited is from the Tent Foundation a creation of Hamdi Ulukaya (Mr. Chobani Yogurt) shown here with the great promoter of cheap immigrant labor and a borderless world, George Soros.

I guess they realized the ‘humanitarian’ shtick was no longer effective, they have come right out and admitted what this is all about—workers willing to work cheap.

Here (below) is the whole flimsy Virginia Public Radio bit.

Expect to hear more of this line that by the time they are here for 20 years, refugees give back to the economy, but never any mention about how much these low wage workers with 6 children consume via welfare, schooling, medical care, housing etc. for those first 20 years!

And, it won’t be lost on our Minnesota readers who have been told time and again that the numbers are not available for what it costs the state to take care of its refugee population.

If no numbers are available, how can this Public Radio reporter say this?  Because he is mindlessly parroting the globalist Tent Foundation.

State Department considering not renewing contracts with all nine resettlement agencies

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 22, 2018

That headline is the important takeaway from this story at NorthJersey.com.

Although largely built around the demise of a recently established resettlement site—Newark! Newark! Yes, Catholic Charities was gearing up to place impoverished third worlders in Newark—the long article is pretty informative.

Newark catholic charities

My first thought: So they have run out of poor Americans in Newark.

It begins with a whinefest about all the used clothes and furnishings the new office had collected for the needy people they planned to welcome to the city.

I’m sure you will have the same reaction as I did—what! No poor people in Newark who could use these items!

Why are foreign poor people so much more deserving (and attractive) than our own poor and homeless?

Greensboro, NC fire that killed 5 children exposes more concerns with US refugee program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 21, 2018

There is a “breakdown at many levels” said Church World Service employee Adamou Mohamed.

Did you hear the news about the five children from the DR Congo who died in an apartment fire in Greensboro, North Carolina just over a week ago?

Probably not because stories showing the unhappy side of refugee resettlement are rarely seen outside the immediate locale.

 

Greensboro apartment fire

Photo: http://www.greensboro.com/news/local_news/questions-follow-deaths-of-children-in-greensboro/article_cf6be3e2-c459-55f2-9778-1273782ad157.html

 

In a tense community meeting last week, the blame for the children’s deaths was placed on the city and on the landlord, all assuming the fire was from landlord and city inspector neglect.

Here are a few snips from the story on that meeting from the local News & Record:

At tense meeting about deadly Greensboro apartment fire, city says it will inspect complex

GREENSBORO — As Greensboro officials, refugee advocates and immigrants gathered days after the deaths of five children in an apartment fire, many people voiced concerns that the city’s deadliest fire in nearly two decades could have been prevented.

“We shouldn’t have had to come to this point,” said community activist Sandra Isley, as others wiped away tears and some trembled in anger during a meeting of the Greensboro International Advisory Committee, which works with the city’s Human Relations Department.

City officials did announce during the meeting that housing inspectors would go door-to-door early next week at the 3100 Summit Ave. complex to conduct inspections on every unit. Beth Benton, the city’s Code Compliance manager, said that action was possible after five residents — the minimum necessary to take action — had signed a petition.

Fire investigators have yet to determine a cause of the Saturday morning fire, but say it started in the kitchen and they are analyzing the unit’s stove. The apartment had no working smoke or carbon monoxide detectors.

The city’s action comes amid claims that the children’s father reported several small fires near the apartment’s stove to management in the days before the tragedy. It is unclear who the father might have notified about the problems with the stove, but the building’s owners said they had no repair request on file.

“There’s a breakdown at many levels for this to happen,” said Adamou Mohamed***, a grassroots organizer for Church World Service, an immigration and refugee program.

Others around him questioned why it has taken so long for the city to get involved.

Resettlement agencies place refugees in cheap apartments and help to build ethnic enclaves….

The North Carolina African Services Coalition placed the family there 18 months ago, when they arrived from the Democratic Republic of Congo as part of a resettlement program. But the agency has since stopped setting up homes there because of complaints about living conditions. Officials with the resettlement agencies say the complex remained attractive to refugees because of the low rent and because it allowed them to live with others who speak their language or understand their customs. Several units there are rented by members of this same family.

Officials have yet to identify the family other than to say the children who died were three boys and two girls between the ages of 18 months and 9 years old. The husband, who works at a local factory, was home with the children but could not get them out.

And here we have the final informative bit of news—Mom was working the night shift for BIG CHICKEN!

If you are new to RRW, you may not know that refugee contractors, including Church World Service, act as headhunters for the meat industry in places like North Carolina.

The wife was working the overnight shift at a chicken plant several counties away. She commutes there with a group of others who share the cost of the drive.

You can read more here.

UPDATE!

No stove malfunction. Parents admitted food was left cooking on the stove, story here:

Unattended cooking led to fire that killed 5 children in Greensboro, fire department says

Read it all.

 

***You really need to see the bio for Church World Service’s community organizer who was clearly leading the charge and attempting to stoke anger with claims of government neglect before all the facts were in.

Why does a taxpayer-funded resettlement agency need a political community organizer (aka community trouble-maker) in the first place?

Adamou Mohamed’s bio at Welcoming America is informative….

 

Greensboro community organizer

Mohamed was addressing a session entitled, Anti-Muslim Backlash, which seems to be no longer available at Welcoming America’s website.    http://www.welcominginteractive.org/staff/adamou-mohamed/

St. Cloud, Minnesota citizens are entitled to an open discussion about their changing city

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 20, 2018

Ten years ago this month, RRW published its first of what would be many posts on St. Cloud, Minnesota, a small city targeted by Lutheran Social Services of MN and the US State Department for the resettlement of mostly Somali refugees.

Jeff Johnson surrounded

Council member Jeff Johnson surrounded in October 2017     https://www.sctimes.com/story/news/local/2018/05/18/st-cloud-city-council-member-jeff-johnson-refugee-resettlement-program/602537002/

When blog partner Judy wrote this post about the mistreatment of a service dog by Somali students it was the first time I had ever heard of St. Cloud, Minnesota.

In those ten years we have published dozens of posts on the demographic change there and the controversy it has created.

Our experience has been that the St. Cloud Times has been biased against anyone who wants to have a discussion about the change, but this story by reporter Jenny Berg is surprisingly balanced!  What happened?

Not just the ‘insensitive’ numbers guy: Jeff Johnson keeps refugee conversation going

 

It is a long story, but really worth reading. I was particularly interested in one theme expressed throughout:

Concerned citizens have a right to expect transparency from government officials at all levels.

In fact, it is that very lack of transparency that gave rise to this blog!

There would be no Refugee Resettlement Watch beginning in July 2007 if there had been an open and honest discussion in Hagerstown, Maryland that year and if the Hagerstown Herald Mail had investigated and explained the details of how the small city in a red county had been chosen for resettlement and how the process would work going forward.

See what I wanted to know in 2007! I’m still working on getting those answers for every American town and city! You have a right to the answers (without having your character slimmed!).

What is wrong with Minnesota? A Scandal Trifecta….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 17, 2018

“How dumb are we? Honestly, I think it is impossible to plumb the depths of our stupidity.”

(John Hinderaker at Powerline blog)

 

“A Scandal Trifecta” is what John Hinderaker at Powerline blog is calling the latest news from the state where ‘Minnesota nice’ takes on new meaning almost daily.

Sorry, I know a lot of good smart Minnesotans, but just now when I wrote about Sweden likely being the first European nation to fall to the Islamists, it struck me as interesting that Swedes in past centuries populated Minnesota…hmmm…is there some defect in the genes?  A gene that is driving people to succumb to invasion? A suicide gene?

One of my top posts in recent days is this one—You are old and white and we are taking over Minnesota!

suitcase with cash

Everyone has been sending me this latest news about millions in cash leaving Minnesota for Africa, much of it alleged to have been generated by welfare fraud perpetrated by a certain group of Africans the Minnesota nice people (the infidels) continue to welcome to the state.

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!

“We had no bedbugs in Syria” (what not to say if you’ve been ‘welcomed’ to the West)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 14, 2018

“….their quality of life was significantly compromised by the presence of pests in their units.”

(Ali Naraghi, their Legal Clinic lawyer)

Two cases don’t make a trend (yet)!  However this is the second case in just the last few weeks or so where ‘grateful’ Syrian refugees are suing their landlords over their accommodations in the West.

Earlier this month it was New Jersey and this story today comes from Toronto, Canada.

Trudeau diversity is strength

The then newly elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau opened the floodgates in 2015 to tens of thousands of Syrians….

From The Standard:

They fled war-torn Syria only to be caught up in a new battle with a tiny but vicious foe.

Soon after Khaldoun Anijleh and his family moved into their first home in Canada, they started to get itchy red bumps and painful blisters on their bodies. Anijleh’s two kids, Samer, 8, and Joudi, 11, would be up all night crying and scratching.

Then one day they discovered the culprits — small, flat oval-shaped bugs on the baseboards and under the mattresses.

Minnesota Somalis: You’re old and we are taking over

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 13, 2018

This week Judy sent me an interesting facebook post. I’ve decided not to name the author in order to spare her further aggravation.

Normally I wouldn’t post on a social media conversation except this one rings a bell.  I’ve heard it before.

In fact in earlier years in the life of this blog, I heard it from time to time.  Somali commenters told me that this country had a lot of wide open spaces and they planned to fill it.

In fact in 2010, a Somali woman communicated with me to warn that Somalis are creating what she called Tuulas (villages) throughout some states—she mentioned Minnesota and Kansas and Maine. She said:

I have read about what is going on in Kansas and in other small towns like Maine. Somalis will turn these small towns into a largely populated Somali town, because if Minnesota is the U.S capital of Somali people then a small town or city cannot stand a chance.

And, more recently a reader (a Somali?) has told me I am old so I am to be dismissed, implying that I can’t stop the inevitable wave anyway.

So this facebook post sounds perfectly in line with what other Somalis have said to me, and are saying:

From anonymous:

Yesterday, I had long social media conversations with two Somali Muslim gentlemen from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I asked them about their goals for improving Minnesota and how they feel about being an American. I also asked them about the million dollar upgrade at Cedar Riverside public housing that Mayor Jacob Frey promised its majority Somali residents this week. After I was called a racist, a fascist, a bigot, stupid and old, here’s what else they shared with me. Nearly verbatim. Thoughts?

 

Mayor cedar riverside

Don’t miss Leo Hohmann’s report on the Minneapolis mayor making special promises to special people.  https://leohohmann.com/2018/05/08/democrat-run-city-building-6-foot-fence-around-migrant-housing-complex-to-keep-intruders-out/

 

“Get with the program, miss. We are here to stay. We never left our Somali heritage or culture. That’s what America is missing. Please stop forcing us to your ways. You’re old and have very old ideas. Get with the program. I’m trying to have my son to be the first Muslim black governor of the state of Minnesota in next 20 years. He’s gonna run as a Democrat. Oh, and on those upgrades at Cedar Riverside. They better give us those upgrades and changes if the Mayor wants to earn our votes. Or else we can always get another Mayor next time around. You see how being an American works? I told you lady please get with the program because Somalis are the latest addition to black folks.

Why should we assimilate? Do you know how stupid you sound? Guess what? We’re here to stay and will transform America for the better. Get that through your thick, ignorant skull. You need to see a doctor. It’s inevitable that Somalis will be taking over and there isn’t anything you can do about it. Again, what’s wrong with Somalis taking over? It is inevitable! This land doesn’t belong to either of us. It is our time to populate it and rule it. Go back to Europe or wherever you’re from if you don’t like it.”

When populations rise, they get cocky (and careless).

And, they are amazingly confident even in light of the fact that Somalia is a failed state because they couldn’t manage to govern it without creating a hellhole.

I suggest that their Leftist trainers (who must be talking to them about ‘old white people’) teach them to not spill the beans prematurely…but then again, let ’em talk!
