Daniel Greenfield: Chattanooga shooter possibly linked to Palestinian refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 17, 2015

Update 2: Shooter traveled to Jordan in 2014, WSJ here.

Update:  If Dad is a Palestinian who left Kuwait, this family could indeed be resettled refugees or successful asylum seekers we gave shelter to. Here is what wikipedia says about the expulsion of Palestinians (Jordanian citizens) from Kuwait after the first Gulf War.   I don’t have time to dig around, but if you do, I’ll post your links here!  I have to get on to my work on “Welcoming Ohio” this morning.

Everyone I know is asking if the Islamic-motivated shooting of 4 unarmed Marines is somehow linked to our refugee program.  I don’t have the answer yet.

Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez

We don’t take very many refugees from Kuwait nor do we take very many Palestinians, but we do send many Muslim refugees to Tennessee.

If anyone sees a mention of the year the killer’s family entered the US it might help us narrow this down.  Remember there are several legal immigration programs through which this family could have been admitted to the US.

One possibility is that a family member (the father?) entered the US in some legal fashion (tourist visa?) then applied for asylum and subsequently brought the family over behind him (like the Tsarnaev Boston Bomber family did).

Everyone keep an eye out for any news about how they got into the US!

Holly Johnson

As the Director for the Tennessee Office for Refugees, Holly Johnson would be able to put the question to rest by telling us whether or not the killer’s family came to the US as refugees or possibly were granted asylum status after getting into the country through some other means.

The refugee program in Tennessee is a Wilson-Fish program which means it is run jointly by the US State Department and in this case Catholic Charities of Tennessee (Tennessee Office for Refugees)—they would both know if the Abdulazeez family came here as refugees or successful asylum seekers. 

Also, the primary resettlement contractor in Chattanooga is Bridge Refugee Services (a subcontractor of Church World Service and Episcopal Migration Ministries, two of nine major contractors).

Bridge has been operating in Chattanooga since 1982 so they would know if this family was one of theirs!

My guess is that the refugee contractors in Tennessee will not be forthcoming.

Daniel Greenfield writing at Frontpage magazine has this bit of information:

This is still preliminary as the story is developing. So take it as that.

The media is reporting that the Muslim attacker in the Chattanooga shootings is Kuwaiti. That may not be accurate, based on the current reporting, it would appear that his mother Rasmia Abdulazeez is indeed from Kuwait, but his father Youssuf Abdulazeez is from Nablus in Israel.

This is not especially significant as a lot of self-described “Palestinians” used to live in Kuwait. At least until the Kuwaitis kicked them out for collaborating with Saddam. With the approval of Bush I.

If you see more on how the family got into the US, please send it our way.

By the way, one of the first posts I ever wrote at RRW was about this agency, Bridge Refugee Services, joining the ACLU and CAIR to fight a 2003 request by the US Dept. of Homeland Security for information under the Patriot Act.  The national security agency was looking for information on resettled Iraqi refugees.  The resettlement contractor refused to cooperate.

So they are not likely to talk now!

Here is another Daniel Greenfield story on this topic.

Meanwhile Presidential candidate Bobby Jindal says Muslim immigration to America might more correctly be called “colonization.”

At Breitbart:

According to a recent report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), approximately 2.5 million immigrants from “predominantly Muslim countries” reside inside the U.S. right now. Abdulazeez was apparently one of them. Jindal has questioned whether all the Muslims coming into the United States right now is really truly “immigration” or if it’s actually a “colonization.”

About Holly Johnson:  This is her contact information if any investigative reporters want to try to get an answer—good luck!

Minnesota concerned citizen speaks to county government leaders about refugee resettlement

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 14, 2015

Update July 26th:  See Let Freedom Ring Blog on Mr. Enos presentation, here.

The other day I mentioned the presentation made by Mr. Bob Enos from Willmar, Minnesota about the problems the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program was bringing to his town.  We now have a Youtube video of his 12-minute presentation.

It’s important in areas where resistance is developing to keep pressure on local elected bodies because although they will dodge and weave and say they have no control when the feds and the contractors come to town with the next batch of third worlders, they in fact do have some power because they can give a ‘welcoming’ signal or they too can demand answers and transparency from the federal government about the costs the program will be placing on local and state taxpayers.

Watch and listen to Mr. Enos here:

This post is archived in our new ‘Pockets of Resistance’ category.

Let’s get this video out far and wide!

As trial opens for Idaho refugee alleged terrorist, Idaho Statesman reports on refugee program

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 14, 2015

Twin Falls, Idaho has become a “Pocket of Resistance” (federal government’s term!) to refugee resettlement where citizens are asking questions and expecting answers about the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program. (See all of our coverage on Twin Falls by clicking here.) Although the Statesman reporter is trying really hard to put a positive spin on the lengthy article, the article itself is a win for the local citizens who want answers.  A year ago there would never have even been this much attention on Uzbek refugee Fazliddin Kurbanov’s trial or the federal program that placed him in rural Idaho.

Trial began this week for alleged Islamic terrorist Fazliddin Kurbanov, a refugee from Uzbekistan. http://boisestatepublicradio.org/post/trial-start-uzbek-refugee-facing-terrorism-charge-boise-0

I’ve snipped just a little bit of the article, but please go read the whole thing! By the way, all of our previous coverage of the alleged Uzbek terrorist is here.  As we have reported in the past, there is something very fishy about the admission of a large number of Uzbeks during the Bush Administration. Some observers believe that after the extremists began rioting, we brought Islamic radicals here to help out the more moderate Muslim President of Uzbekistan. I’ve even heard rumors that they were flown in with the help of the CIA.  It wouldn’t be the first time that we brought supposed ‘refugees’ here for some other foreign policy goal of the US government. We will probably never know whether there is any substance to the rumors. The Idaho Statesman:

Some 80,000 people came to the United States as refugees in 2009, nearly 1,300 of them to Idaho. One of those arrivals, an Uzbek who landed in Boise, was later charged as a bomb-making terrorist. His trial starts Monday.

Citizens want answers!

Overwhelmingly, refugee stories fall into the more positive, and typically more mundane, camp. Even so, opposition to refugees and concerns about their backgrounds persist, getting the occasional boost from new threats, incidents or shifts in refugee policy.

The recent U.S. pledge to resettle several thousand of the estimated 4 million Syrian refugees displaced by war is prompting renewed concern in Idaho. That’s loudest around Twin Falls, where the College of Southern Idaho has worked to resettle refugees since 1982. It now assists up to 300 people annually, and a local group has mobilized in protest.

“We’re not against refugees,” said Rick Martin, of Buhl, who leads the group that wants the college to end the program. “We’re against this program because there’s just so many unanswered questions that are not being addressed.”

What the heck!  Act of bias! Wendy Olson has just demonstrated her bias by suggesting that concerned citizens might be violent.

With the trial of Fazliddin Kurbanov set to start, U.S. Attorney for Idaho Wendy Olson announced on Friday that her office and other law enforcement agencies are on high alert for potential acts of bias against members of the refugee and Muslim communities.

We are told repeatedly (lectured actually!) that refugees are thoroughly screened,  but we aren’t supposed to notice every time a terrorist turns up in the refugee flow?

But what looms larger for concerned opponents is not that forest of millions, but the lone tree, such as an Uzbek in Boise who gained entry to the U.S. despite security checks that were supposed to stop him. Kurbanov is accused of planning bomb attacks at military bases and large public venues. He was arrested in May 2013 after FBI agents raided his Boise apartment and found chemicals and bomb-making components.

Measured against a population of millions, cases like Kurbanov’s are exceedingly rare but still cause for concern. The 2013 Boston bombings were committed by refugee brothers from Chechnya. With the rise of the Islamic State in the war-ravaged Syria in 2011, those who oppose refugees say greater risks could be on the horizon.

It is not just terrorism that concerns local residents…

“For our committee, even if they had said the Syrians are not coming, we would still pursue getting the college out of the refugee business,” said Martin, who with others has worked for years to install new college trustees who would end the program. “They need to focus on their core mission, which is to continue to be a center of higher learning for adults.”

Martin said his group, which counts more than 100 members on a closed Facebook page, also objects to the overall cost of refugee resettlement, its effect on the local job market and the “slumlike” conditions in which he says refugees are housed. [We hear this all the time—refugees in slums—and it’s because the contractors don’t want to spend too much money on them.  So instead of saying that we are taking more refugees than America can afford, let’s reduce the numbers, they live in slum housing.—ed]

This post is archived in our Pockets of Resistance’ category as an example of the fine work citizens are doing in demanding transparency and economic accountability when refugees are resettled in local communities.  Media attention is vitally important.

An afterthought:  I just looked again at the AP story where I got the photo and realized that the title identifies Kurbanov as a “refugee.”  When I first began exposing the Refugee Program, the word ‘refugee’ was virtually never mentioned in any negative story about a refugee, let alone in a title!

News from Spartanburg, SC, a “Pocket of Resistance”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 13, 2015

This is one more in our new series of posts on what concerned citizens are doing to resist the colonization of their towns and cities by the UN/US State Department using impoverished third worlders (all part of the Obama Administration plan to “seed” your community with ethnic and economic diversity).

We will be bringing to you as many of these stories as we can so that you may find inspiration and support for what you are doing in your state.

UNITED STATES - JANUARY 23:  Candidate Christina Jeffrey, R-S.C., is photographed on the House Steps, January 23, 2009.  (Photo By Tom Williams/Roll Call/Getty Images)

Dr. Christina Jeffrey

For new readers, Spartanburg, SC residents learned in early spring that their town was targeted by one of the nine major federal contractors, in this case World Relief (Evangelicals), to begin receiving refugees this fiscal year (FY 2015 ends Sept. 30, 2015).  To catch up, go here to our first post (with updates).

Rep. Trey Gowdy represents the district and is Chairman of the all-important House Judiciary, Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security.  Gowdy should have called for hearings on the program weeks ago!

Get the facts!

Sounds boring, but one of the first steps for those of you questioning a new resettlement site or an existing one is to gather your facts and get those facts to the general public. 

The US Refugee Admissions Program, as we have chronicled for the last 8 years, is largely a secretive program.  Why? Because once taxpaying citizens understand how it works and what it costs, they usually reject the whole scheme.

So here is Dr. Christina Jeffrey announcing the release of a document and fact sheet that she and her group have prepared for South Carolina citizens (really all of you across the country).  Emphasis is mine:

One of the biggest threats today to U.S. sovereignty is mass immigration. While we were focused on illegal immigration, massive legal immigration was increasing wildly under the radar. I was not aware of the huge pressure being brought to bear by various programs that have been bringing in tens of thousands of immigrants/permanent residents every year.

This year, Spartanburg was chosen to be the one hundred and ninety-first “welcoming city.” I had to do some homework to find out what that meant.

I learned that our new neighbors were being selected for us by a program called Refugee Resettlement, one of the largest legal immigration programs. It is run by the State Department in cooperation with the United Nations. To give you a quick overview of the program, I have prepared a 10 point fact sheet.

The fact sheet is a good place to start, but not enough. Some friends and neighbors, good writers and researchers, came together to research and write about the Refugee Resettlement Program. The material is carefully sourced with live links that should allow you to instantly read primary documents like the President’s April 15 report on “Welcoming New Americans.”

We call our local “pocket of resistance,” The Shoemaker Guild.

This report will enable you to approach your elected officials with good, “take it to the bank” information. Please feel free to share widely.

God bless you and God bless America.

“Pockets of Resistance” growing and spreading

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 11, 2015

You’ve heard me often refer to “Pockets of Resistance,” those towns/cities and states where activists are demanding answers to the many questions citizens have about the United Nations/US State Department colonization of their towns by third worlders through the Refugee Resettlement Program.

We did not coin that phrase, the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement did here in June 2013 (or at least that is the first place I heard it) when they also announced that they had hired ‘Welcoming America’ to head off new ones, and get those already existing ones under control.

In 2013, ORR specifically mentioned that there were ‘Pockets of Resistance’ in New Hampshire, Tennessee and Georgia.

By the way, it was at that meeting that I first heard the information about “seeding” our towns and cities with immigrants.

Now we can report there are growing pockets in the following states in addition to the three just mentioned: Idaho, Ohio, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia (that I know of!).  I know I risk tipping off Welcoming America agitators to head to those states, but if I don’t mention this, many of you might get discouraged thinking you are alone.

New category here at RRW

What I am going to do is make a new category here at RRW for posts specifically on what concerned citizens are doing to demand answers—to demand TRANSPARENCY—where they live.  The purpose of which is to help give you ideas and to learn about efforts to resist already underway. Having all of those posts in one place will make it easier for new readers to find them.

I’m going to go back to a few previous posts—recently on Idaho and Minnesota—and place them in the new category.  Unfortunately I won’t be able to go back through 6,000 plus posts to select those involving citizen action!

Here is a Minnesota example!

Last week a concerned citizen in Willmar, Minnesota, Bob Enos, made a presentation to the County Board Meeting in Willmar (Kandiyohi County).  One bit of information that interested me was his assertion that the second highest number of refugees going to Minnesota were going to Willmar and not to St. Cloud (a very active ‘pocket’). Enos has done his homework and I direct your attention to this video of the County Board Meeting to see the kind of presentation that you could be making where you live.  Click on the video and go to 2:35:09 mark.

Some people have had difficulty loading it.  It loads for me on Firefox although on the second viewing I only got sound (but that is adequate for your purposes!).

Be sure to see this post we wrote about resistance and sabotage.

Do you have an action item that throws a shoe in the machinery of government that you would like to report?  Please let us know!

Again, see our new category—Pockets of Resistance.  (I will be adding posts to it as soon as possible)

Obama Administration diversifying neighborhoods with HUD money

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 10, 2015

For those of you wondering why your middle class, largely white, town is getting low income housing, it is all becoming more obvious that Obama is using the federal piggybank to ‘encourage’ the racial and economic diversification of your towns.

I don’t want to have to become a housing expert, and since Stanley Kurtz already is, I don’t have to be.  Please see his latest at National Review.

Wonder why most of your local elected officials aren’t concerned about more low income people arriving in your town?

Light bulbs going off! 

Of course this all helps us tie in the push to bring third world refugees to more and more towns and cities.  Your local government officials are probably in on this as is the local Chamber of Commerce as they see dollar signs for their developer cronies and more power for themselves.

Kurtz at National Review two days ago:

Today, HUD Secretary Julian Castro announced the finalization of the Obama administration’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule. A front-page article preemptively defending the move appears in today’s Washington Post. The final rule is 377 pages, vastly longer than the preliminary version of the rule promulgated in 2013.

AFFH is easily one of President Obama’s most radical initiatives, on a par with Obamacare in its transformative potential. In effect, AFFH gives the federal government a lever to re-engineer nearly every American neighborhood — imposing a preferred racial and ethnic composition, densifying housing, transportation, and business development in suburb and city alike, and weakening or casting aside the authority of local governments over core responsibilities, from zoning to transportation to education. Not only the policy but the political implications are immense — at the presidential, congressional, state, and local levels.

The vast majority of Americans don’t want this forced integration!

This brings us to politics. As noted, AFFH is a largely unacknowledged attempt to force economic integration on every neighborhood in America. Yet in a recent Rasmussen poll, 83 percent of respondents said it was not the government’s job to diversify neighborhoods by income level, while only 8 percent say that this is an appropriate task for government. Now you know why the Obama administration and a compliant press corps have kept this initiative quiet.

Learn more by continuing to read here.

Fighting back!

The forces arrayed against you are pretty frightening and formidable.  Do not despair! Please revisit this post from ten days ago where we reported on what Daniel Greenfield told you—that you are guerrilla warriors now—and as such you must throw shoes into the the machinery of government at every opportunity.  For most of you, this will be at the local level.

If you want to preserve your middle class American lifestyle for your children and grandchildren, please get involved!  Find those little places in which to throw shoes!  Develop ‘pockets of resistance!’

Greenfield:

Just obstruct any liberal initiative, policy or program in your community.  Tie it in redtape!

You can do this!

Roanoke, Virginia: Former Bosnian Muslim prison guard extradited to Bosnia, committed war crimes…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 10, 2015

…..and surprise! surprise! lied on his application for refugee status.

Nezirovic-mug-for-web-jpg

Poster boy for the refugee next door! For every Albert Einstein the refugee industry highlights, I’ll show you a Nezirovic!

The US State Department is quick to say that refugees are thoroughly screened before arriving in the US, don’t believe them.   The case of Almaz Nezirovic is not the first case of refugee fraud we have reported over the years.

From WDBJ-7 (hat tip: Robin):

ROANOKE, Va. –

A former Bosnian prison guard who lived in Roanoke and is accused of war crimes against Serbian prisoners has been sent back to Bosnia.

Almaz Nezirovic, 54, was extradited back to Bosnia on Wednesday.

He is accused of committing war crimes against civilians between April and July 1992 during the Bosnian War.

Bosnian officials believe that Nezirovic beat unarmed civilian prisoners.

“This included allegedly stripping victims naked, beating them severely with a club, and forcing them to eat grass on which others had urinated,” according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Western District of Virginia.

After the war in the former Yugoslavia ended in 1995, Nezirovic sought refugee status in the United States, where he later applied for a green card and to become a naturalized U.S. citizen.

Nezirovic was originally arrested in June 2011 and charged with two counts of naturalization fraud. Those charges stemmed from false statements about his wartime activities and other conduct during his citizenship application.

Continue reading here.  There is more, plus the US Attorney’s news release is printed in full.

We first posted on this case in 2011, here, so imagine what this investigation, incarceration and trial has cost the US taxpayer!  I think there should be a law that when refugees go through the criminal justice system, the US State Department budget should pay the costs.  I know that is still taxpayer money, but maybe it would help alert everyone to the fact that the State Department really doesn’t know who the hell they are sending to unsuspecting towns.

Roanoke

Roanoke, VA has had its share of charming refugees.  Remember the 2009 case of 4 African refugees plotting to kidnap local rich women! 

We also had a 2008 story about tensions building between the local African American community and their new African brethren being resettled there.

So who is doing the resettling in Roanoke?  For new readers who want to check out who is responsible for colonizing your towns and cities, go to this handy list and have a look.

By the way, it was Bill Clinton who brought in the over 100,000 mostly Muslim Bosnians to America!

It seems that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops/Catholic Charities is responsible for changing Roanoke.  Don’t ask me why they have two offices there largely paid for by you!

HIAS targeting Toledo with Muslim refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 6, 2015

We alerted readers, in February 2014, that Toledo was being targeted as a new “welcoming” community for refugees and in particular refugees from the Middle East.  See our story!  The original ABC News story is gone (it’s a good thing I snipped some of it).  Pay particular attention to the flag graphic behind the TV news anchor.

American Flag with Allahu Akbar

Screen shot from the 2014 announcement that Toledo will take Iraqi refugees. Arabic writing on the flag: Allahu Akbar! Did ABC know what they were doing when they prepared this graphic?

Now, here is the update on Toledo thanks to a new blog called Welcoming America Watch Midwest (story posted at Creeping Sharia).  I was so excited to see this news—-not that Toledo is being colonized, but the news that someone else is writing a blog on refugees!   Here is a bit of the post, but please go read the rest of it!

I was about to start a post on the parent group of Global Detroit and all the other Welcoming initiatives when it came to our attention that Afghan and Syrian refugees are being resettled in Toledo, Ohio. We have known for awhile that the address of an apartment complex’s office called Kenwood Gardens is listed on the State Department refugee resettlement subcontractor list as address for the subcontractor US Together.

[….]

This neighborhood appears to have everything a family could need to function. At the link to US Together–Toledo’s Facebook, there’s photos of another apartment for Afghan refugees. There’s a mosque, shopping center with grocery, large apartment complex, refugee resettlement contractor stationed at the apartment office building–and to top it all off, a public charter school for the kids that has an Arabic theme (the schools–elementary and middle–moved from their original Secor Rd. location into an old synagogue adjacent to the apartments). And all this is within walking distance of a huge employer, the University of Toledo (not on the above map).

Continue reading here.

Guess what!  The subcontractor US Together is an affiliate of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society which we know is busy resettling Muslims into American towns and cities.

This is from HIAS list of “partners:”

US Together (Columbus, Cleveland, and Toledo) – 614-310-3200

It was only 10 days ago or so we learned that HIAS thinks that the US should resettle 200,000 mostly Muslim Syrians!  Can you say death wish!

St. Cloud residents hammer Rep. Emmer on Refugee Program; Somali teen murders African American

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 5, 2015

Emmer responds in anger (not about the murdered teen, he didn’t like being questioned) according to this news at the Examiner entitled ‘Tom Emmer’s public meltdown.’

By the way, the thin-skinned Rep. Tom Emmer is the Republican who won the seat formerly held by Rep. Michele Bachmann.  It sure looks like the 6th District of Minnesota will miss Bachmann as we learned recently that Emmer has joined forces with Rep. Keith Ellison to create a Somalia Caucus in Congress!

tom-emmer

Rep. Tom Emmer. With Republicans like these……

Here is Gary Gross writing at the Examiner.  St. Cloud residents want to know what the cost is to the local taxpayer as Lutheran Social Services and the UN/US State Department continue to send refugees to the city that has a growing ‘pocket of resistance’ to the colonization plan.

A big crowd turned out for Congressman Tom Emmer’s townhall meeting Wednesday night. It wasn’t a good night for Emmer because he let his temper get the better of him early in the event.

The chief point of contention was over the refugee resettlement program. When citizens asked for a moratorium on the program until after an economic impact statement had been done, Congressman Emmer asked why anyone would have a problem with people in the United States legally. When an unidentified member of the audience said that refugees were draining St. Cloud’s resources, Emmer responded by saying that he’d seen the city of St. Cloud’s budget and that it looked fine. At that point, several people booed.

The main complaint is that refugees are depleting the school district’s funding. They’re allegedly also using health care programs, too. It was noted that school budgets aren’t part of St. Cloud’s operating budget. That’s shown in the school district’s budget. Also, the health programs that refugees are using are administered by Stearns County, not the City of St. Cloud.

Looking at St. Cloud’s city operating budget wouldn’t tell Congressman Emmer anything about the refugee resettlement’s financial impact on St. Cloud.

At another point, Emmer got upset about the possibility of Syrian refugees heading to St. Cloud, calling that possibility the “Syrian myth.” He later said that he’d checked with the State Department, who said that there wasn’t a chance of Syrian refugees coming to Minnesota.

Continue reading here.

He might be right about the number of Syrians that might be sent to Minnesota.  I’m thinking the US State Department could actually have enough sense to not send more Muslims to Minnesota.    Although if they get their wished-for 65,000 in the next 18 months, every state will be fair game.

Also from St. Cloud: Not a word in the national news about Somali refugee stabbing to death African American in St. Cloud

From Fox9.com (hat tip: Gary).  A story posted the same day as Emmer’s meltdown story:

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KMSP) –

20-year-old Davee Duvose lost his life early Friday morning after being stabbed by a 16-year-old at a St. Cloud house party, and he was just trying to protect his friend Chelsea Siegle.

“I was nonstop crying,” Siegle said. “I didn’t sleep for three days after that. He took care of everybody else before himself.”

The St. Cloud student was killed after he stepped in to protect Siegle from a violent stranger. Siegle, her girlfriends, and Duvose were at house party in St. Cloud when she was approached.

“One of the dudes came up to me and was asking me what’s your name what’s your number, you’re cute,” Siegle said. “And I said ‘no I’m good. Can you just leave me alone?’ And he was like, ‘you’re a bitch.’ I was like ‘excuse me?’”

16-year-old Muhiyadim Mohamed Hassan randomly jumped into the brawl with a kitchen knife after Duvose began protecting Siegle. She said Hassan just “came out of the blue and stabbed Davee.”

More here and link to ‘Go Fund Me’ for Duvose’s funeral.   Will Obama speak at Duvose’s funeral?  Or, will Rep. Keith Ellison?  Emmer?

We paid to resettle Mohamed’s family and now taxpayers get to pay for a trial and incarceration—what a deal!

African population booming in Minnesota; sending millions of dollars back to Africa

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 5, 2015

This is one of those feel-good stories about how Minnesota is such a wonderful state with its ever-expanding African migrant population.  If you are a Minnesotan it’s probably a good thing to read.

Somali women MN

Minnesota women protesting the sentencing of two Somali women on terror funding charges. None of these glowing economic studies include the cost to taxpayers for the criminal justice system. Photo: http://www.komonews.com/news/national/2-Minnesota-women-sentenced-in-Somali-terror-case-207813961.html

However, I caution readers on the numbers.  The TwinCities Pioneer Press reports that there are about 85,000 Somalis in the whole US and that just isn’t so…the number is much larger.  We painstakingly researched the numbers for just those entering the US through the refugee program and came up with over 100,000 in the last 25 years and that doesn’t include a couple generations now of producing children.  See this early post.

You will see mention in the story that when census takers come around, the Africans are less than truthful about how many are living at the location.

From TwinCities Pioneer Press:

Of the 50 states, Minnesota has the ninth-largest population of African immigrants. About 60 percent come from East African nations such as Somalia and Ethiopia, and 25 percent from West African nations such as Nigeria and Liberia. The rest come from elsewhere in Africa.

[….]

Of more than 85,700 Somalis officially known to reside in the U.S., nearly a third are thought to reside in Minnesota.

[….]

Corrie, a professor at Concordia University in St. Paul, believes the state’s African population produces $14 million in philanthropy within Minnesota each year, on top of $150 million in annual remittances to countries in Africa.

I don’t know why this is considered a good thing—sending money out of America that will never benefit our economy!

Some of the ‘smart’ people on our side should get to work doing studies that will show the real picture including how much welfare is consumed by the immigrants, how costly is their medical care and education, the cost to the criminal justice system, and include an analysis of where the money goes!

I’m starting to think that glowing reports about how immigrants benefit the local economy include the money flowing into a state like Minnesota from the federal tax payer via welfare programs.  Someone needs to find out!

By the way, I don’t see any mention in the Pioneer Press story about the fact that half of the state’s Somalis live in poverty, here.
