Obama Task Force on New Americans: Changing America by ‘seeding’ migrants in towns everywhere

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 28, 2015

Obama is changing America by changing the people!  You might even say he is “colonizing” America!

And, they are doing it by changing the language as well!

Yesterday several readers directed me to a segment of the Mark Levin radio program where Levin interviewed “Sue” from Maryland.

Sue had been wise enough to get on recent conference calls with the White House Task Force on New Americans, we mentioned the Task Force here and here.

In our first post we told you who was in charge and that they were not “assimilating” immigrants.  They are “integrating” them.  The word “assimilate” is verboten in the Open Border circles.

The task force was created in November, here it is.  Now they are getting to work under the guidance of none-other than former La Raza (“the race”) agitator Cecilia Muñoz and the Director of USCIS León Rodríguez.

In that second post, we copied verbatim the Task Force on New Americans instructions for getting on the call.  Note that they wanted to keep whatever was said from the press:

Note to the media: This engagement is not for press purposes.”

After hearing Sue’s description of what she heard, it is no wonder they didn’t want the press to know what was being said!

You can listen to Sue’s report to Levin by going to the Podcast of Levin’s February 26th show. Go here and find the February 26th show.  Start listening at 91:12 (on my version of the podcast).

***Update***  Reader Caroline sent us this link to WCBM (Baltimore) where Sue is identified as Sue Payne co-host of the Pat McDonough Radio Show.

Everything she says rings true with what we have been hearing and reporting for the last couple of years!  But, it wasn’t until now that it all becomes clear!

The image is from a powerpoint presentation by ‘Welcoming America’ which I saw in June 2013. The seedling is the migrant, the soil is your town. LOL! I guess ‘Welcoming America’ is shoveling them in! http://welcomingrefugees.org/sites/default/files/documents/resources/2014%20Welcoming%20Institute%20Powerpoint.pdf

Let’s start with ‘Welcoming America’ a community organizing group headed by David Lubell that sprang from a seed in Nashville, TN and was watered initially with funding from a George Soros group.  We told you about them here.

In June 2013, it was the first time we heard this ‘seeds and soil’ concept that Sue reported to Mark Levin.  In the “emergent” immigrant communities, the new immigrants (newly amnestied and refugees) are the “seedlings” and your town is the soil.

Will the “seedlings” ultimately take over the host?

At that June 2013 Office of Refugee Resettlement “stakeholder” meeting in Lancaster, PA, we learned for the first time that the federal government had contracted ‘Welcoming America’ to get peoples’ minds right especially in areas where “pockets of resistance” (their words!) had formed.

Here is what I said about that presentation by ‘Welcoming America’ in June 2013:

“Welcoming America is on the case!  They want to “transform” communities by “Building a Nation of Neighbors”!

Downs-Karkos described her organization’s job as “promoting understanding and support for refugees.”  The whole concept is that YOU must improve your attitude to your new neighbors, not that the refugees must learn to fit into American society.  We are a Nation of immigrants, they are coming, so get used to it was the basic message.

The refugees and immigrants are the seeds and your community is the soil into which they are being planted is how she described what is happening.  Her group is working on improving the soil.”

We have been chronicling ‘Welcoming America’ and David Lubell’s activities for nearly two years, click here for our complete archive.   See especially that when Obama recently visited Nashville, community organizer Lubell was invited on Air Force One.

Go here to see if your city/county is working with Welcoming America!  See which states have “Welcoming Affiliates” here.

Changing the definition of “refugee”

photo3

They are changing the legal definition of “refugee!”

Obama and his cabal of Open Borders agitators are working to further blur definitions involving categories of legal immigration (eg refugees) and illegal aliens something that is already very confusing to the average American and often the media as well.

Besides the ‘seedling and the soil’ imagery, Sue reported that the task force seeking to change America wants to transform all of the newly amnestied aliens into “refugees.”

That is an integral part of the plan which we have been saying is the real goal behind the ‘unaccompanied alien children’ invasion of the border—Obama, Munoz, Lubell and the gang want them all designated as refugees!  Why? Because refugees have all forms of welfare (including health care) available to them while other classes of immigrants (both legal and illegal do not) and they are on a fast track to citizenship.

That is the point (the refugee definition change) we were trying to make on Fox & Friends earlier this month, here.   Refugees are legally defined as being outside their own country and must prove that they fear returning home because they are persecuted for race, religion or political persuasion.   Economic migrants are not refugees!  The alien “children” are not refugees!

I wrapped up the interview with this line (notice I did not use the words “illegal immigration.”):

“I also think that immigration is our existential threat in this country, both [because of] the numbers and who we are bringing in.”

It is not just Obama!

Finally, remember this “seeding” concept has been going on for decades through Presidents of both parties as the US State Department and its contractors (all nine are progressive, six of them represent the “religious Left”) have been seeding communities with refugees — see our post just this week about how over 60 towns in Minnesota have been “salted” (I should have said “seeded!”) with Somalis.  Obama is just taking it to a new level.

By the way, I will bet the contractors*** were on that Task Force on New Americans conference call too!

Speaking of language—you are a racist if you don’t want to be replaced!

Again, they control the language:  If you aren’t “welcoming” then that means to them you are unwelcoming=racist, redneck, xenophobic, nativist boob.  Such language sends most good people running for cover.  Or, in the case of politicians, especially Republican ones, they virtually wet their pants out of fear while Obama and the progressives move forward with their agenda of replacing you!

*** I wonder do the refugee resettlement contractors care about legitimate refugees as they sell-out to the Open Borders movement by supporting amnesty for millions?

US State Department and resettlement contractors salted Minnesota with over 10,000 Somali refugees since 2005

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 26, 2015

In the wake of the terror scare over the past weekend, the Washington Times has published a pretty thorough piece on how the Refugee Admissions Program of the US State Department has changed/stressed Minnesota with the resettlement by three refugee contractors—Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services of MN, and World Relief MN (now Arrive Ministries)—of thousands of Somali refugees.   (For anyone interested in finding the resettlement contractors in your state and city, click here for a handy directory).

Someone should prepare a map showing all of the towns in Minnesota that have ‘welcomed’ refugees of all stripes. Some of the towns we mention are here especially the hottest sites: Minneapolis, St. Paul, St. Cloud and Rochester.

We told you here, that Minnesota is the go-to state for the resettlement of Somalis. Generous welfare was the original draw.

You can read the whole Washington Times article by reporter Kelly Riddell, here.  As of this writing there are 626 comments!

If you are living in small town/suburban Minnesota (or small town America) and are thinking this isn’t happening where you live, it is a big city issue, think again.

I went through the State Department data base again yesterday to see just where in Minnesota Somalis had been resettled over the last ten years (I started my search in February 2005).

I was shocked!

Remember as you look at this list below that the Somalis may not have stayed where they were originally placed, they may have moved to bigger cities in the state or others may have joined the ‘seed community’ in these other towns.

In refugee industry lingo, those who move are called “secondary migrants” and Minnesota is getting the lion’s share of those from across the US.

Do you think all of these towns (over 60 in number!) were consulted before they were expected to take on the financial burden of housing, healthcare and education for the kids?

The total number of Somalis placed in Minnesota, since February 2005 to date, is 10,804. 

(Many more were resettled in Minnesota before 2005, but we only looked at the last ten to eleven years.)

Who are the 525 Syrian refugees admitted to the US in recent years; where have they been resettled?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 25, 2015

Everybody is talking about the Syrian refugees admitted to the US, including the British press, here at the Daily Mail.  But, let me be clear, most news outlets are reporting that we are going to quadruple the number already here from recent Syrian crisis to around 2,000 in the coming year.

Please remember that the US State Department has 9,000-10,000 in the pipeline created by the UNHCR and in fact until the recent revelation by the FBI, they had every intention of getting the flow up to that level this fiscal year!

The resettlement contractors have been agitating for 15,000 a year!

First Syrian refugee family arriving in Louisville, KY being helped with a grant from an Islamic charity. Hey! Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul—are you paying attention! https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2015/02/15/first-syrian-refugees-arriving-in-louisville-ky-helped-with-grant-from-islamic-charity/ Photo: http://www.wave3.com/story/28105459/first-refugee-family-from-syrian-civil-war-arrives-in-louisville

From the Daily Mail:

More than 500 refugees from Syria’s bloody civil war have already been resettled in the United States, and U.S. officials and members of Congress are becoming increasingly worried that jihadis linked to the ISIS terror army could slip into the country along with them.

Since war broke out in Syria nearly four years ago, America has welcomed 524 people from the rapidly disintegrating country with open arms. U.S. intelligence agencies lack the resources to vet them properly, but the Obama administration plans to admit a few thousand more this year.  [My stats beginning January 1, 2012 indicate 525 Syrians have been admitted—ed]

‘The United States has admitted 524 Syrians since 2011,’ State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters on Feb. 13.

‘We’re likely to admit 1,000 to 2,000 Syrian refugees for permanent resettlement in Fiscal Year 2015 and a somewhat higher number, though still in the low thousands, in Fiscal Year 2016.’

You can read the rest of the Daily Mail article.

As I said yesterday when I told you where Somalis have been resettled in the US in recent years, I’m doing a series of posts on facts the media (and you!) need to know.

The vast majority of Syrian refugees entering the US right now are Muslims (89%)

Here is how the religions of our newest Syrians break down (from Refugee Processing Center data).  Arrival dates between 1/1/12 and 2/23/15.   These are the exact category names used by the State Department:

Atheist (1)

Bahai (2)

Catholic (1)

Christian (36)

Jehovah Witness (8)

Moslem (20)

Moslem Shiite (8)

Moslem Sunni (437)

No Religion (2)

Orthodox (3)

Other Religion (6)

Yazidi (1)

So where did the US State Department resettlement contractors*** send them?

Arizona (19)

Arkansas (1)

California (72)

Colorado (8)

Connecticut (3)

Florida (21)

Georgia (15)

Idaho (9)

Illinois (50)

Indiana (25)

Kansas (5)

Kentucky (5)

Maine (1)

Maryland (19)

Massachusetts (21)

Michigan (20)

Missouri (1)

New Hampshire (3)

New Jersey (17)

New Mexico (6)

New York (8)

Ohio (6)

Oregon (1)

Pennsylvania (30)

Tennessee (8)

Texas (79)

Utah (5)

Virginia (16)

Washington (16)

West Virginia (1)

Wisconsin (1)

*** For reporters and other interested media, here is a list of the federal contractors and the percentage of tax dollars they use to do their work of distributing refugees around the country via their approximately 350 subcontractors.

Where have all the Somalis been resettled in the US? Minnesota takes the prize!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 24, 2015

My plan (ha! ha! if I don’t get distracted!) is to try to do a series of posts to answer the many questions I’m getting from the media in recent days.  The US State Department has an extensive data base called the Refugee Processing Center.  Sometimes you can access the data and sometimes you can’t!

First a few basic points:  The UN High Commissioner for Refugees chooses most of our refugees.  The Department of Homeland Security is responsible for screening them.  The US State Department sends them out via contractors they euphemistically call Voluntary Agencies (VOLAGs).  They are not voluntary—you pay them through your tax dollars to place the refugees through their offices in 180 cities across America.  The nine major VOLAGs have 350 subcontractors to form an extensive network.   The contractors spread the refugees out to surrounding towns if the main resettlement city gets overloaded (especially if ‘pockets of resistance’ form).

Reporters!  Find the resettlement contractor contact information in your city by clicking here.

The Department of Health and Human Services (Office of Refugee Resettlement) makes sure the nine contractors are well paid for myriad activities.

Back to the data…

Minnesota ‘welcomed’ 17% of all Somalis resettled in the US since 2005. Three resettlement agencies were responsible: Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Services of MN, and World Relief MN (aka Arrive Ministries).

I searched this morning for Somali refugees resettled to which states from February 1, 2005 to February 1, 2015 and here is what I learned:  The US State Department distributed Somalis to 45 states and the District of Columbia basically establishing “seed communities” or colonies.

Remember though that this is America and people can move without permission so some originally resettled in one place may have long-since moved.  The professionals in the refugee industry call those who move “secondary migrants.”   The state receiving the most secondary migrants is Minnesota-–why? because Somalis want to live with their kind of people.

Here is the link for the data base I used for the following information.  You will need to put your own search parameters in.

From February 1, 2005 to February 1, 2015 we brought a total of 64,332 Somalis to the US from all over the world!

By the way, our Somali refugees don’t come directly from Somalia, but we pick them up all over the world including from Kenya, South Africa, Malaysia, Malta and even it appears Saudi Arabia (more on that later).

The states not (yet!) getting Somali refugees resettled directly are:  Delaware (LOL! Joe Biden was one of the original sponsors of the Refugee Act of 1980), Arkansas, Montana, Wyoming, and West Virginia.  We know that ‘secondary migrant’ Somalis are going to Wyoming.

(Any state over 1,000 is in red)

Alabama:  207

Alaska:  224

Arizona: 3,727

California:  2,375

Colorado:  1,803

Connecticut:  696

District of Columbia:  1

Somali Islamic terrorists threaten attack on Mall of America; we are bringing in over 800 Somali refugees a month right now!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 22, 2015

Update February 24th:  Have Somalis been resettled in your state, go here to find out!

The news comes from the Somali capital of America—Minneapolis!  And, LOL! one of three cities that the Obama Administration touts as an example of how Muslims are happily settled in!

Screen shot from the Al-Shabaab video.

From Twincities.com:

Mall of America officials increased security on Saturday after a terror group linked to al-Qaida released an online video that appears to call for an attack on the popular shopping destination.

Islamic terrorist group al-Shabaab specifically named the Mall of America, the West Edmonton Mall in Alberta and London’s Oxford Street in the more than hourlong video that was being circulated on Twitter.

Federal law enforcement officials told CBS News that they are investigating the video.

Mall of America officials released a statement Saturday saying that they were aware of the video that mentions the megamall and shows an image of it and its GPS coordinates.

“We will continue to monitor events with the help of federal, state and local law enforcement agencies,” according to the statement.

[….]

The video posted Saturday shows six minutes of graphic images celebrating the Westgate Mall attack. Near the end of the video, a masked man wearing a camouflage jacket appears on screen.

“If just a handful of mujahedeen fighters could bring Kenya to a complete standstill for nearly a week then imagine what a dedicated mujahedeen in the West could do to the American or Jewish-owned shopping centers across the world?” he asks.

See our coverage of the carnage at the Westgate Mall in Kenya, here.

Come on mainstream media—you are fixating now on the Syrian Muslims who might come to the US—but never focus on the number of Somalis we are admitting every single month!

For new readers (and hopefully media types!) 

Look at the numbers!    Here is our post which chronicles the over 100,000 Somalis we have admitted as refugees to your towns and cities. Then be sure to see that in 2008, the State Department uncovered widespread fraud in Somali family reunification (P-3 program)—thousands, possibly 20,000 Somalis, got into the US by lying on refugee applications.

See, ‘Why so many Somalis in Minneapolis‘, here.

And, then see that in FY2014 we admitted 9,000 additional Somalis to the US.   This is huge pool of potential jihadists!

In the first 4 months of FY2015 we admitted 3,536 new Somali refugees to America!  That is 884 a month!  If that large stream continues it will put us at over 10,000 Somalis in FY2015!

Al-Shabaab must feel confident that they have operatives in the US Somali community.

An after thought!  Don’t you think the timing of this video release is interesting—right after the Obama/Biden ‘hug a Muslim’ conference.  It is almost as if the terrorists are making fun of the O-man!

Minneapolis: Basketball will keep Somali youths away from the Jihadists

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 20, 2015

I simply can’t write this story one more time!

 

Taxpayer-funded basketball will save America (haven’t we tried this before?).

 

Thanks to Cathy for sending it, but I’ll let you read it yourself at MyFox9.com.  When taxpayers are expected to come up with grant money for yet another “program” to keep Muslim kids busy and supposedly away from the Islamic imperative to join the Jihad, it is not only the $$$ that concerns me, it is that the message becomes it is all America’s fault.  If they go off to fight with Al-shabaab or ISIS it is because we don’t give them enough stuff!

It is never about the indoctrination going on in the neighborhood mosques—no never!

Texas: Somali sentenced for falsifying asylum application; feds keep terrorism connection secret

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 19, 2015

See below for the Emporia, KS connection!

We told you about the fraudulent asylum claim on February 7th, but thanks to Creeping Sharia for finding a longer article on the sentencing at My SanAntonio that contains some information I found most interesting.

Here is My San Antonio:

A Somali man was sentenced in a San Antonio courtroom Thursday to 15 years in federal prison for lying to get into the U.S., as well as a never-before-disclosed admission that he had helped a terrorist group.

Abdinassir Mohamud Ibrahim crossed the US border in 2007 at Hidalgo and was granted asylum (refugee status) and “resettled” in Emporia, KS.

Abdinassir Mohamud Ibrahim, 43, previously admitted that he lied his way into the country or left out damaging details — such as his relationship to two people who made international headlines because of their reported ties to terrorist groups.

But the FBI, Border Patrol, acting U.S. Attorney Richard Durbin and a national security official disclosed Thursday that Ibrahim secretly also pleaded guilty in July to sending e-mails in support of al-Shabab and providing money to a friend affiliated with that terrorist group. The charges were made public at his sentencing Thursday, but officials made no mention of his cooperation that led to them keeping the details secret for more than six months.

The affidavit said Ayrow was the former leader of al-Shabab and was killed in a U.S. airstrike in 2008. Aweys was affiliated with al-Shabab and al-Ittihad al-Islami, which the U.S. has placed on a list of specially designated global terrorist groups.

Now look at this!

Ibrahim was granted refugee status in the U.S. and resettled in Emporia, Kansas, after coming through Hidalgo in May 2007. But the status was granted based on fraudulent information, the affidavit said.

There is more here.

Emporia, KS connection

If you have been reading RRW since we began writing, you may remember that there was a huge problem with Somalis in Emporia, KS in 2007, most of whom had been lured there by jobs at Tyson Foods.  Overnight it seemed Emporia was flooded with Somali refugees.  If I recall correctly there wasn’t even a contracted resettlement office there.

There was such a public outcry that Tyson Foods actually shut the main part of the plant down and moved the Somalis elsewhere.  We wrote about what was happening for months and created a special category, here, just for news from Emporia.

As a matter of fact, Bobbi Mlynar writing at the Emporia Gazette on November 28, 2007 told the citizens there about our refugee problem in Hagerstown, MD and pretty accurately described what was the origin of RRW.

So back to Abdinassir Mohamud Ibrahim—there really was a liar (a phony refugee) and prospective terror sympathizer living in Emporia at the time citizens there were agitated!

One more thing, Ibrahim did not come in the usual resettlement process, he entered the country illegally by crossing the border in Texas and asked for and received ASYLUM.

How many more Ibrahims are out there?

Kentucky again! Refugee resettlement must be growing in the Bluegrass state!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 16, 2015

Yesterday we told you about the Syrian refugee family being resettled in Louisville, KY right now and here is news about Lexington, KY and the same refugee contractor.

Barbara Kleine runs the Lexington Office of Kentucky Migration Ministries which is working with grants from Islamic Relief USA we learned yesterday. Kleine’s photo and bio are here: http://kyrm.org/lexington-staff/

So either Kentucky is a hot resettlement site or the contractors there like making news!  This is a story about a fundraiser Kentucky Refugee Ministries is having (ho hum), however there are two bits of information worth mentioning.

From Kentucky.com:

First an Iraqi refugee complains that “there is not enough financial support” for them!  Now, the resettlement industry would say this means we need to throw more government money their way, but how about looking at it this way:  Maybe we are bringing more refugees than we can afford!

“There is not enough financial support of an organization like this,” Alnaasree said. “There are so many refugees from all around the world, Africa, Asia, the Middle East.

“They arrive here looking for a better life, better chances, but we start to figure out the truth,” he said. “There is not enough financial support.”

Someone needs to investigate this funding source…

What about that Islamic Relief USA money we learned about here in our report on Louisville?  That was the first time I ever heard of a contractor getting “grants” from an Islamic ‘charity’ to resettle presumably Muslim refugees.  Where are the two US Senators from Kentucky on this question?

***Update***Ryan Mauro writing at the Clarion Project says that Islamic Relief USA is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood (here).

Then if your town is contemplating “welcoming” refugees or maybe you have just started in the last year or so, remember that it will become virtually impossible to stop because the contractors will call you mean spirited and racists if you deny family members of the “seed community” to come to your town in subsequent years.

Since KRM’s establishment in Lexington in 1998, 2,500 refugees from 32 countries have settled here. “Last year we had a huge year,” Kleine said, with 299 people immigrating, most joining families that were already here. KRM is expecting 250 to 260 this year.

“Most of the refugees now have a U.S. tie,” she said. “A friend or a relative.”

The largest contingent of refugees is Congolese, she said. A lot of Iraqis are still coming, and the number of Afghanis is growing. The number of Bhutanese, however, is slowing as the refugee camps in Nepal are closing down.

KRM’s goal is to find employment for the refugees and help them become self-sufficient. English classes are first on the list, along with classes on cultural adjustment and working in the U.S. It takes an average of 120 days to find work.

“Self-sufficiency” might be their “goal” in that short time, but it is virtually impossible to achieve without some very crafty reporting—like finding refugees jobs (any job!) for a brief time so they can tell the State Department that the refugee found employment!  And, besides, even if the refugee is still living in subsidized housing, getting Obamacare and food stamps they are still considered self-sufficient for refugee resettlement bookkeeping.

Sometimes I think those working hard to change America—to turn red states blue—get a perverse sense of joy out of dropping off diversity into states like Tennessee and Kentucky—watch out Alabama and Mississippi you will be next (oh, and how could I forget Wyoming too!).

First Syrian refugees arriving in Louisville, KY; helped with grant from Islamic charity

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 15, 2015

Just as we have been discussing the testimony this past week by the FBI to the House Homeland Security Committee and how difficult it is to vet the thousands of Syrians in the UN’s pipeline to America, news is coming that the first Syrians are arriving.

This information about a Muslim charity giving grants for refugee resettlement is the first I have seen of this practice.

Head quartered in Alexandria, VA, Islamic Relief USA is not a rinkey-dink charity—in a recent Form 990 they reported $65 million in income in one year.

***Update***Ryan Mauro writing at the Clarion Project says that Islamic Relief USA is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood (here).

Here is a story from WAVE 3 News from Louisville after an intro about the Bosnian caseworker from Kentucky Refugee Ministries:

“We all came as refugees and now it’s about time for us to give back,” said Semsudin Haseljic.

Syrian refugees arriving in Louisville, KY on Friday. Looks like nutritional deprivation was not a concern for this family

He arrived in Louisville to get treatment when he lost both legs in the Bosnian war. “It was difficult at the beginning because I was here by myself,” Haseljic said. “I didn’t have any money, any clothes, any family members.”

Today, he’s a caseworker with Kentucky Refugee Ministries. The organization with the help of the Bosnian American Islamic Center, and thanks to a grant from Islamic Relief USA, is bringing a family fleeing civil war in Syria. “This is a young couple, a husband and wife, and two young children,” Haseljic said.

Mohammed Masmoom and his family have had a long journey, stretching many months and miles, but when asked about his emotions today, all he could talk about was his welcome.

“He feels great that he saw all these people welcome him in the airport,” said Miriam Jaleel, who translated for the family.

The family was taken to the apartment that’s been rented in their name for a welcome meal, and then a weekend to adjust and decompress.

On Monday, Kentucky Refugee Ministries will begin explaining the services [including welfare—ed] they can expect, the English classes they’ll take and the help they’ll get finding jobs. The goal is for them to be self-sufficient in five to eight months and then help other families that Refugee Ministries expects to arrive in [from?] Syria.

By the way, Louisville is a preferred resettlement site for the federal government.   And, Kentucky is a Wilson-Fish state which means that Kentucky elected officials at the local and state level have no say in any of this—it is all done with federal contractors like Kentucky Refugee Ministries.

But….Mitch and Rand could say a whole lot about this if they wanted to!

St. Louis: Bosnians plead not guilty in terrorist funding case, 6th defendant arrested in Germany

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 13, 2015

North American Bosniaks distance themselves from the alleged ISIS supporters. http://www.stlbosnians.com/statement-about-six-individuals-of-bosnian-descent-accused-of-terrorist-activity/

This is an update of the story that broke here a week ago.

New readers may wish to visit that post for a little background on how the Clinton Administration brought in thousands of Bosnian Muslims when they helped break up Yugoslavia.

From AP at Yahoo News:

ST. LOUIS (AP) — An immigrant couple from Bosnia pleaded not guilty Wednesday to federal charges of funneling money and military supplies to extremist groups in Iraq and Syria.

Each of the six suspects is now in federal custody after the Tuesday arrest in Germany of Jasminka Ramic, 42.

Bosnian community leaders in St. Louis, which has the largest population among U.S. cities of refugees from the former Yugoslavia, say the arrests of the Hodzics and a third local resident, 37-year-old Armin Harcevic, tarnishes a community whose members have worked tirelessly to embrace their adopted homeland. Most of the estimated 70,000 Bosnians in St. Louis are Muslim and arrived after the war that broke out in the early 1990s.

Click here for some previous posts we have written on Bosnian refugees here in America.   We also have a bunch of posts on all sorts of refugee problems in St. Louis, here.   See especially this post about how a refugee contractor wants to further ‘diversify’ St. Louis by 2020.
