Diversity not so beautiful in Elizabeth, NJ

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 27, 2016

The Leftist Open Borders activists and the Refugee Resettlement contractors continue to promote the naive concept that all immigrants they shove together in neighborhoods throughout American towns and cities love each other and are eager for the mixing of cultures they are told happens in the mythical American melting pot.

hillary-and-david-miliband

David Miliband, a British national, is head of the federal resettlement contractor diversifying Elizabeth, NJ. He and Hillary are long-time pals! If Hillary is elected, expect tens of thousands more refugees arriving in your towns. Go here for our huge archive on Miliband: https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/?s=David+Miliband

It is a big lie that immigrants living next door to each other (and next door to African-Americans) are all living in harmony. It is a lie we have reported on many times over the years as the mainstream media usually hides the friction from the general public.

But, I guess in the case of Elizabeth, NJ, hometown of one of the recent Islamic terrorists who came out of the closet, even the Los Angeles Times is reporting on the growing fear of Muslims by the earlier Hispanic immigrant waves.

By the way, I’ve even heard that in some big food processing/manufacturing plants the Muslim workers and Hispanic workers are assigned to different shifts so as not to create more tension in the workplace.

Breitbart tells us all about how the fissures are showing in Elizabeth, NJ as reported by the LA Times (because let’s face it, how many of you are still reading the LA Times!):

“I used to think we were all immigrants, all the same people who came here for a better life. Now I’m not so sure,” a Colombian-American neighbor of First American Fried Chicken, the business linked to Afghan-American suspected terrorist Ahmad Khan Rahami, told the Los Angeles Times.

Gus Serrano, who lives in the Rahami family’s community in Elizabeth, New Jersey, was one of many who expressed reservation with the newest arrivals to the working-class, largely immigrant and refugee-populated city. Rahami was arrested last week after allegedly planting a series of bombs throughout the region – first in the sleepy shore town of Seaside Park, New Jersey, then in two locations in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, and, finally, at the Elizabeth, New Jersey, Transit train station.

In a notebook found on his person after a shootout with police, Rahami made mention of al-Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki and Islamic State chief propagandist Abu Mohammad al-Adnani. “Kill the kuffar in their backyard,” he wrote.

Hispanic immigrants are kuffars just like you and me!

Here is another quote from a woman who is reevaluating her thinking:

One woman told the Los Angeles Times that she used to chide a friend who would warn about Muslim immigrants. “I would tell my friend, ‘How can you say Muslims are terrorists?’” She says she is reconsidering her friend’s stance: “But now — oh my God — look what happened in our neighborhood. How can we know who to trust?”

Continue reading here.

Elizabeth, NJ is being diversified by federal contractor the International Rescue Committee, see here.

I just checked the Refugee Processing Center to see just how much diversity the IRC had dropped in Elizabeth over the last ten years (number of refugees in parenthesis):

Afghanistan (19)

Bhutan (15)

Burma (44)

Colombia (12)

Cuba (602)

DR Congo (75)

El Salvador (2)

Eritrea (15)

Ethiopia (8)

Iran (4)

Iraq (206)

Ivory Coast (4)

Latvia (1)

Moldova (8)

Pakistan (2)

Somalia (9)

Sri Lanka (5)

Sudan (41)

Syria (221)

Ukraine (4)

But not to worry, they are going to melt into multicultural bliss and live happily ever after.

West Virginia: Is Catholic Charities bringing in foreign laborers for a poultry plant to compete with Americans?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 26, 2016

Here are some of the facts as we know them:

West Virginia is a relatively new resettlement state which has received only 176 refugees in the last ten fiscal years.

However, in addition to Catholic Charities resettling refugees, Episcopal Migration Ministries wants to open a new office in Charleston.  Presently CC has three locations and one of those is in Moorefield, WV.

jbs-greeley

This is the magnificent headquarters building Brazilian-owned JBS has in Greeley, CO. JBS owns most of Pilgrim’s Pride. So think about it! If you have Pilgrim’s Pride or any other JBS company in your town, it is being changed so a foreign-owned company can have cheap/compliant/foreign labor. (This is a photograph I took as I passed through Greeley on my RRW road trip this summer.)

 

What else is in Moorefield? I’ll tell you! There is a Pilgrim’s Pride poultry plant located there.

Here are some things we know about Pilgrim’s Pride:

It is owned by the Brazilian meat giant—JBS (you may know them as Swift & Co.) headquartered in Greeley, CO.

And, now get this. The very same Labor Department, that I would normally be complaining about, says that in some locations in the US, Pilgrim’s Pride is DISCRIMINATING against African American job applicants, Caucasians and women!  They are choosing Hispanic laborers (and it would appear refugee laborers) over Americans!

This is from a Dept. of Labor Press Release dated 10/7/2015:

ATLANTA — One of the world’s largest chicken processors systematically discriminated against qualified African-American applicants seeking entry-level jobs as laborers and operatives at its chicken plant in Marshville, North Carolina, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs alleges in a lawsuit filed against Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation.

“Discrimination will not be tolerated by employers who profit from government contracts,” said OFCCP Director Patricia A. Shiu. “OFCCP will use every action available by law, including canceling Pilgrim’s federal contracts if necessary, to ensure workers are treated fairly.”

The complaint results from an OFCCP investigation into the company’s selection procedures. This is the second lawsuit filed by OFCCP against the company in less than 30 days. The first complaint, filed on Sept. 15, 2015, alleges that Pilgrim’s Pride systematically discriminated against qualified African-American, Caucasian, and female applicants for entry-level laborer and operative positions at its chicken plant in Athens, Alabama. Both complaints were filed with the department’s Office of Administrative Law Judges and seek complete make-whole relief, including instatement of qualified black applicants at the chicken processing facility, payment of lost wages, interest, front wages, and other fringe benefits, including but not limited to retroactive seniority.

[….]

As a result, some African-American, Caucasian, and female applicants were rejected despite having education and experience levels comparable to male and Hispanic applicants. The Athens plant is no longer in operation.

Based in Greeley, Colorado, Pilgrim’s Pride is the largest chicken producer in the U.S. The Brazilian food giant JBS S.A. owns 75 percent of Pilgrim’s Pride’s outstanding common stock.

From 2007 to 2011, Pilgrim’s Pride received more than $36 million in federal contracts as a provider of poultry to agencies such as the departments of Defense and Agriculture.

Could that same discrimination being going on in other Pilgrim’s Pride plants?

Back to Moorefield and Catholic Charities.

I checked the numbers from the Refugee Processing Center and here is what I learned.  In the last 10 fiscal years, 176 refugees were resettled in WV.  49% of those went to Moorefield (CC lists poultry processing job availability there in its R & P Abstract).

Beginning in about Fiscal Year 2010, CC began resettling Burmese refugees (36 total) in Moorefield. In 2012 they began placing Eritreans there (42) and then 6 Iraqis and 2 Ethiopians followed.  I know that numbers-wise it is small compared to the numbers being placed for the benefit of BIG MEAT around the country, but it strikes me as a very clear indication of how supposed ‘religious’ charities are working for the benefit of meat processors.  But why? Is it all about money?

What is in it for the pols?

Then we get to the politicians.  Moorefield is in WV District 2 (Rep Alex Mooney) who won that district when former Rep and now US Senator Shelley Moore Capito moved on to the Senate. Both are Republicans.  What is in it for them to defend this practice of hiring refugees when African Americans, and Caucasian women need work in WV?

I don’t know the answer except for the Dems we know they are looking for more Democrat voters.

But as each of you begins to unravel why refugee labor is changing your towns (and why your elected officials aren’t listening to you), you need to figure out what is in it for Republican elected officials at all levels because I can assure you this is not about ‘humanitarianism!’ That is only the cover for big business (and the Chamber of Commerce!) to continue to push for more refugee admissions to the US.

Update: Reader Brenda sent this handy list of US poultry plants, wonder how closely it correlates to Refugee Resettlement sites?

What makes a town desirable for refugee resettlement explains Blacksburg, VA resident

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 23, 2016

Blacksburg is one of the new refugee seeding sites being considered by the US State State Department.  Recently we learned that there are as many as 47 of them (according to the Reno Gazette-Journal).

melody-warnick

Author Melody Warnick. My questions for Ms. Warnick: How about if you love where you live and want to keep it from becoming something different. Why does keeping it just the way it is, the way one loves it, not as valuable a concept as changing it by changing its people?

Here an expert on loving where you live(!) tells us what she thinks are the features that a town might have that makes that town MOST attractive to the resettlement industry decision makers.

From Quartz (hat tip: Joanne):

In late July, I was one of more than 100 residents of Blacksburg, Virginia, crammed into the local library for the first meeting of the Blacksburg Refugee Partnership. We were there to find out what it would take to bring Syrian refugees to our small town in Virginia.

At first, I’d assumed that our town was too small and isolated to make a good home for refugees. But as a representative from Commonwealth Catholic Charities explained, we had a few things going for us: A university with steady employment opportunities [janitors—ed]. A community of Arabic speakers. And perhaps most importantly, people who really, really wanted to bring Syrian refugees here—not a given in Virginia, considering that the mayor of nearby Roanoke had gone on record saying he didn’t want them. [Poor Roanoke has a long history as a resettlement site, increased crime, social tension, etc., so the mayor is speaking from experience when he said he didn’t want MORE!—ed]

My town’s excitement over the possibility made me curious about the places in the US where refugees are most likely to thrive. During the 2016 fiscal year, the 10,000 Syrian refugees who fled their war-torn homeland for the United States have ended up all over the place—ranging from major cities like Chicago and Houston to more unexpected locations like Clearwater, Florida, and Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Here is Melody Warnick’s list of the features she thinks a refugee-welcoming town needs (go to the story, here, to see why):

Good public transportation

A culture of volunteerism

A mosque in town

A population that leans Democrat

A church-going tradition [these would be church-goers on the religious left—ed]

An entrepreneurial ecosystem

She quotes David Lubell of Welcoming America by way of explanation:
“If you take the example of Clarkston, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta, which has had a huge growth in its refugee population over the past 15 years, entrepreneurs come and create halal supermarkets.” [Oh yippee, where is PETA?—ed]

Chilly weather

A smaller population

You can read it all by clicking here.

She has forgotten two of the most important elements and those are whether the state  has a generous welfare system and has expanded Medicaid.

And, not to mention the most important element and that is whether there is a hardcore political activist group (or even just one or two people), or a Left-leaning Interfaith group, with a mission to change America by changing its people.

Update: How could I forget—if you have a meat packing plant nearby you go to the top of the list!

We know some of the newly targeted towns and they include:  Missoula, MT, Charleston, WV, Ithaca, NY, Rutland, VT, Northhampton, MA, Fayetteville, AR.  I know I’m missing dozens, so help me identify them all.

Former Rep and Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann tells us what has happened to Minnesota

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 22, 2016

Even after the (told you so!) attack at St. Cloud’s Crossroads mall last Saturday night, the first instincts of elected officials in Minnesota is to rally around the Somali Muslim population to protect their sensitive feelings.

In an interview with World Net Daily, Bachmann does not hold back!  (St. Cloud was part of her district during the years she was in Congress and trying to get her fellow members to wake up to Islamic supremacism and the infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the Administration in Washington, DC.)

From Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily:

Minnesota’s St. Cloud community is still reeling from Saturday’s knife attacks that injured 10 people and caused panic at the Crossroads Center Mall on Saturday, a day that police chief William Anderson said changed the city forever.

bachmann

I hope I am still around to see Bachmann vindicated one day and John McCain shown to be the traitor who protected Huma Abedin and the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration of our government.

But did it?

The city of 67,000 people sits 65 miles northwest of Minneapolis. It has been pummeled with Muslim refugees, mostly from Somalia, for more than a decade, and its citizens have been brow beaten into a form of politically correct submission to Islam, says former Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.

“I would say that this attack did wake people up in the sense that this was real and it happened in our backyard and people are aware of it. But Minnesota is a state where we have been marinated in political correctness for quite some time, and the pushback against any type of conservatism is extremely intense. So people have no fight left in them,” Bachmann told WND.

To say anything negative about Islam immediately gets you branded a bigot, a xenophobe, a racist or an “Islamophobe,” she said. It doesn’t matter that Islam is not a race or that the term “Islamophobe” was invented by the extremist Muslim Brotherhood as a tool to cast Western Muslims as victims of oppression.

Continue reading here.  Could Minnesota be America’s first Muslim state?

By the way, if Hillary and her chief aide Huma Abedin make it to the Oval Office we are finished, but I don’t need to tell you that!

You might want to visit our top post over the last few days—it is from 2015—about how Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota is responsible for seeding St. Cloud with Somalis.

California World Relief refugee contractor lets cat out of bag: next year 20,000-30,000 Syrians will arrive

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 20, 2016

And, no doubt they will be at least 95% Syrian Sunni Muslims.

kirt-lewis

Kirt Lewis: Yippee! Sacramento could get 2,000-3,000 Syrian Muslims! Photo: http://worldreliefsacramento.org/staff?title=&field_deparment_value=All&field_position_tid=All&page=1

When the Obama Administration went to Congress last week with its official “determination” for FY2017 which begins in 11 days (on October 1) and said that they want 110,000 refugees from all over the world admitted in FY17, they very pointedly made no mention of how many Syrians would be in that huge flow.

But, here, at the end of a story about the cost of educating refugees in California, a World Relief spokesman tells us what they all know on the inside (but are keeping secret from you!). (Hat tip: Joanne)

Early indicators suggest the U.S. is going to see more Syrian refugees next year–probably between 20,000 and 30,000,” Kirt Lewis, director of the Sacramento field office for World Relief, said in an interview. “As a rule of thumb, about 10 percent of those will end up settling in Northern California, and especially in Sacramento.”

To heck with Obama, it is the Republican Congress that will be responsible if this happens because they control the purse strings.  Contractors like World Relief have virtually NO MONEY unless they have yours—your taxpayer dollars!

Call your member of Congress today!  See here.  But call yours even if he/she is not on the Freedom Caucus.

Is the New York bombing suspect a refugee?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 20, 2016

I don’t know. Maybe someone has already dug out the immigration information for Ahmad Khan Rahami (and I will be pleasantly surprised).

But, I woke up this morning and figured you would be wondering so I needed to at least address the fact that I don’t know, and am not going to spend a lot of time trying to figure out which of many LEGAL programs his family might have used.

***Update*** Here is a report that says he came as a child in a family that sought asylum here, so that makes him a refugee. The asylum process is the other half of the Refugee Admissions Program and the difference is that in the case of asylum, the migrant gets in here on his or her own steam, usually illegally, and then applies for asylum.  Clearly, if he is now a citizen, his father/family were approved political refugees. The other type of refugee we usually write about is chosen abroad and flown here.

screenshot-24

This is a map from the Refugee Processing Center showing where nearly 10,000 Afghan refugees have been resettled between FY 2003 and up until September 1, 2016. http://www.wrapsnet.org/Reports/InteractiveReporting/tabid/393/Default.aspx

 

It is not as simple to figure out how Afghans got here as it is with the Somalis.  The Somalis we know are probably 95% (higher maybe) refugees admitted through the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program, but Afghans have gotten in here over decades through many legal and illegal avenues.

By the way, when I opened RRW just now I see that our old post about Lutheran Social Services of Minnesota being responsible for the large number of Somalis in St.Cloud went viral overnight.  You might want to have a look at it if you’ve never seen it, or have forgotten it.  Click here to see all about LSS of Minnesota and St. Cloud.

People who have never paid attention before are starting to ask—how the h*** are we getting so many Muslims admitted to the US?

Back to Rahami:

CNN has a rather lengthy discussion about his activities as an adult, see here, this morning. And, I did see in one report yesterday that he really hates gays!  But, like with so many other Islamic terrorists, the federal government is going to hold tightly any information on the immigration history of the terrorist’s family.

I do know that Elizabeth, NJ (Rahami’s home town) is one of three major resettlement sites in New Jersey and it is the International Rescue Committee that is placing more Muslims there. (The IRC is the same federal contractor operating in Missoula, MT now.)

Enterprising reporters might call the IRC in Elizabeth and ask if the Rahami’s are one of their families.

Or, maybe Senator Sessions could wring it out of the USCIS for his hearing tomorrow.

I did find this interesting article on how Afghans can get to the US.  It’s a how-to guide in English.  The article mentions using the Diversity Visa Lottery:

The easiest way is to enter the Diversity Immigrant Lottery. Each year approximately 50,000 green cards are issued to foreigners chosen randomly from a computer program.

If more Americans understood how that works there would be as much outrage as there is now about refugees. But, I’m not going there now because I have many more interesting things I want to post today.

So, as soon as someone finds out how this particular terrorist’s family got here, let me know and I’ll post it (it could years from now before we find out!).

Apparently no ‘pocket of resistance’ in Reno as first refugees arrive, but we learned something important!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 19, 2016

We told you months ago that Reno, NV was on the list to get a refugee resettlement office for the first time. You can see the abstract submitted by the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) here.

carina-black

Carina Black, as Director of the Northern Nevada International Center, works for Lavinia Limon at USCRI. http://refugees.org/find-a-location/#agency-map

This is the puff-piece about the first family of refugees from the DR Congo (we are taking 50,000) and the welcome they received. Most of the Congolese are not Muslims but a small percentage are.

Note two things: first that this family had a home in Uganda (these are not destitute camp dwellers) and that there will be a public meeting on Wednesday night (the 21st) to (LOL!) answer the public’s questions, but alas (they must have chosen a small venue on purpose) and it is sold out.  You have got to watch on line (so there goes the opportunity to make any noise).

I have to give them credit, the feds and their contractors/subcontractors really know how to get these offices up and running in secrecy.

But, this is the important news we learned:

The US State Department has chosen 47 new towns to be primary resettlement sites this year! Has your’s been chosen and you don’t even know about it yet?

From the Reno Gazette-Journal:

The Musungus are among 75 refugees coming to Reno over the next year as part of a refugee resettlement project sponsored by the Northern Nevada International Center. The nonprofit applied earlier this year to be one of 47 new sites chosen by the State Department to accept refugees from worn-torn countries.

[….]

While in Uganda, he was able to live better than most by using some of his musical background to work as a sound engineer, later moving up to managing a band that played in hotels. It gave the family enough to rent a home, but they were constantly required to check in with government officials regarding their status.

I bet they ‘sold out’ the event by stacking it with friendlies!

RGJ.com [that is the local newspaper—ed] and the Northern Nevada International Center will host a town hall meeting Wednesday, Sept. 21 to answer questions about the resettlement of conflict-zone refugees in Reno-Sparks.

The event is sold out. You can watch the event live from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on the RGJ’s Facebook page at Facebook.com/RGJMedia.

The whole story is here.

So what industry near Reno is looking for cheap labor? Don’t Nevada’s Hispanics need work?

St. Cloud Somali Jihadist one of nearly 150,000 Somalis admitted to US in refugee program in over 3 decades

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 19, 2016

I don’t know what to make of the fact that the Somali jihadist in St. Cloud, MN has not been officially identified when his father and the Somali ‘community’ fingered him yesterday.

Here is what the Minneapolis Star Tribune said about his identity. Here is my post yesterday.

george-bush

We have admitted tens of thousands of Somalis to your towns and cities in over 3 decades and it is George W. Bush who is responsible for three really big years. Obama could still beat him in overall numbers.

Breitbart has a story pinning the blame for the large number of Somalis in the US on Hillary Clinton, but let’s be fair!  Every President’s State Department since the early ’80’s has admitted Somalis to America.

Back in 2008 I painstakingly went back to annual reports for many years (before we had access to the Refugee Processing Center) and here is what I reported and subsequently updated each year since.

I’ve taken the numbers I had gathered and grouped them by the President whose State Department was admitting the refugees.  If, as we are told, the St. Cloud jihadist came to America with his family 15 years ago, that would have put him in Clinton’s last bunch or Bush’s first bunch.

We have been taking Somalis ever since Somalia’s civil war in the 1980’s. Why is it our problem if the myriad Somali clans can’t get along or govern themselves!

The numbers below are only for the US Refugee Admissions Program!

(These numbers do not include other ways Somalis have entered the US such as Temporary Protected Status, Diversity Visa Lottery winners, asylum seekers, students and other who over-stayed visas, or illegal aliens we have not yet found.)

Reagan and Bush (the first): 4,413

1983-93:   4,413

(Black Hawk Down, Oct. 3, 1993)

Bill Clinton: 35,635

1994:  3,508

1995:  2,524

1996:  6,440

1997:  4,948

1998:  2,952

1999:  4,321

2000:  6,002

2001:  4,940

 

George W. Bush (43): 48,865

2002:   242    (Guesses why this is so low?  9/11 freaked everyone out!)

2003:  1,708

2004:  12,814

2005:  10,101

2006:  10,330

2007:  6,958

2008:  2,523 (family reunification suspended when widespread fraud discovered)

2009:  4,189  (on the rise again even though family reunification is suspended still!)

 

Barack Hussein Obama: 46,378 (so far)

2010:  4,884

2011:  3,161

2012:  4,921

2013:  7,600

2014:  9,000

2015: 8,858

2016 (one month short of a full year): 7,954 (1,099 went to Minnesota in the last 11 months)

2017: Technically this is O’s too because he is right now (September 2016) making the decision for 2017.

I figured (above) for the first year of a new President, who comes in to office almost 4 months after the fiscal year began, he is not responsible for that year’s refugee numbers.

The question everyone should be asking this week, after noticing that security screening is useless if the Muslim ‘youths’ we raised with our tax dollars grow up to be killers, is, WHY ARE WE STILL TAKING IN SOMALIS GOING ON 4 DECADES! WHY DID WE TAKE THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE? WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR SOMALIA FOREVER ARE WE?

Call your Member of Congress and US Senators today and all week! Tell them to cut off the flow of migrants from terror-producing countries by cutting off the funding in the Continuing Resolution!

Tell them to get on the Babin/Brat letter!

Knife-wielding attacker (who injured 9) in St. Cloud mall was a Somali

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 18, 2016

Update September 20th: Here is a story about his original resettlement, as a child, in Fargo, ND. It is a short drive from Fargo to St. Cloud (I drove it while on my RRW road trip this summer).

I guess as time goes  on we will hear if he came to the US as a refugee youngster and benefited from the generosity of US and state taxpayers or whether he is a relatively new refugee (the vast majority of the Somalis in the US came in through the Refugee Admissions Program).

Only a small fraction of the nearly 200,000 Somalis in the US now came in through other legal means (some came illegally across our southern border).

Remember what MN Governor Dayton said last year, don’t like our Somalis get out of Minnesota!

dave-kleis

St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis, a staunch defender of the burgeoning Somali community in St. Cloud, looked a bit distraught at the press conference today. Said stuff like this kept him up at night. Really? Or was it just last night?

It is simply pathetic that a couple of hours ago all of the officials arrayed in a lengthy St. Cloud press conference—the mayor (who has been a vocal advocate for the expanding Somali enclave there), the police, even the FBI couldn’t bring themselves to identify the dead perpetrator, but waited (did they wait on purpose?) to give the ‘Somali community’ time to spin the story.

He was a good boy, no violent past, a good student, a college student in St. Cloud. (Maybe even a security guard!) So what! He was first and foremost a Jihadist. And, Obama and his Lefty friends who chalk up ‘violent extremism’ to poverty and lack of opportunity can just shut up! This guy had prospects for a good future and he chose jihad for Allah instead.

Here is Michael Leahy at Breibart:

The Saint Cloud Times is reporting Dahir Adan, a member of the local Somali Community, was the man who attacked nine people at a local mall Saturday while shouting about “Allah.”

A short time earlier, St. Cloud Somali-American community members identified the deceased suspect as Dahir Adan.

Leaders of the Somali-American community in St. Cloud gathered Sunday with his family and issued a statement of sympathy for the family and the nine victims of the attack.

Community leader Abdul Kulane said as far as the family and community know, the suspect did not have any history of violence. He was known as a smart, accomplished student at Apollo High School. He was a junior at St. Cloud State University, Kulane said. Adan was also working part-time as a private security officer, leaders said.

At a press conference on Sunday, St. Cloud, Minnesota city officials refused to release the identity of the man who attacked nine people with a knife in a local mall Saturday night while shouting “Allah.” The attacker was killed by an off-duty police officer from a nearby city who happened to be in the mall at the time.

Continue here.

And then here Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit has more where we learn that he was originally from Fargo, ND (another major resettlement city not far from St. Cloud) from the Jihadists facebook page. Thank the Lutherans of Minnesota and North Dakota for changing America by changing its people.  (Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is the major federal contractor with subcontractors in both those locations.)

By the way, I have been to St. Cloud twice and on my first visit in 2015, the St. Cloud Times thought it was a good idea to attempt to discredit what I say.

See my huge archive on St. Cloud by clicking here.

Don’t forget, Obama goes to the United Nations and holds his super-duper refugee summit on Tuesday to persuade America to take in even more Muslim refugees!

St. Cloud terror attack at mall, 8 injured, but what’s taking so long to identify dead jihadi?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 18, 2016

Update:  Surprise! (not!). He is a Somali, here.

Update: ISIS says he is one of theirs. So they know who he is and we don’t (and it is nearly noon eastern). See ISIS taking credit here.

Sheesh, they know who this guy is, the one who went on a stabbing attack at a St. Cloud, Minnesota mall and was subsequently shot to death. So what takes them so long to announce to the public who the “man” is—a refugee or an American convert to Islam?

Did he act alone?

I’ve been searching and searching so at 6 a.m. on Sunday morning this is about all there is on what obviously was a terror attack (whatever else they want to call it).  By the way, we have written extensively on St. Cloud over the years and have visited the troubled city twice, most recently on my roadtrip to see towns and cities overloaded and troubled with large numbers of refugees.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — At least eight people were taken to a hospital with injuries after a stabbing attack at a Minnesota shopping mall that ended with the suspected attacker, who reportedly made references to Allah, shot dead by an off-duty police officer, authorities said.

St. Cloud Police Chief Blair Anderson said during a news conference shortly after midnight that eight people were taken to St. Cloud Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries following the attack first reported about 8:15 p.m. Saturday. One person was admitted. No further details were released.

Anderson said an off-duty police officer from another jurisdiction shot and killed the unidentified suspect. He did not say where that officer serves.

During the news conference, Anderson said the attacker who was armed with a knife reportedly made references to Allah during the attack and asked at least one person whether they were Muslim.

But Anderson declined to call the attacks an act of terrorism, saying the motive for the attacks isn’t known yet. “We will be diligent and get to the bottom of this,” Anderson said.

More when the attacker is identified.

I wonder did ISIS send out instructions and three of their followers were activated yesterday—in New Jersey, New York City and St. Cloud, MN.
