Under Trump, Muslim refugees from Burma (Rohingya) are numero uno

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 3, 2018

I told you the other day that we had a slight increase in the number of refugees entering the US in the month of May.  The number is still way below what the refugee contractors*** need to assure that their federally funded budgets are flush with your involuntary contributions via Washington.

Today I checked Wrapsnet (FY18 data) for the Muslim refugee numbers and learned this:

The percentage of Muslims entering as refugees is way down compared to Bush and Obama years.  It now stands at 15% when it was approaching 50% under Barack Hussein Obama.

(Total admissions so far 14,321 and 2,184 are listed as Muslims of some sect or another.)

But….

 

Rohingya refugees mostly women

See my Rohingya Reports category with 224 previous posts:   https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/category/rohingya-reports/

 

…much to my surprise I see that Burmese Muslims (Rohingya) top the list!

We want to go to Germany and make Muslim babies…

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 18, 2017

That is what Syrian ‘refugees’ told writer  on an island in Greece.  Asked why Greece wasn’t sufficient for the purpose, he was told that the Greeks don’t pay refugees as well as the Germans do…

“They [‘infidels’] are too easy to fool.”

(Afghan refugee on a Greek island)

From BESA Center (Hat tip: Robin). Emphasis below is mine):

….on a beautiful and cool summer evening, I met A. at a bar on the same island. A., a Syrian refugee, often spends his evenings bar-hopping with his western friends. Those friends are mostly romantic European social workers who, I observed several times, sport t-shirts, bags, and laptops festooned with the Palestinian flag. They are on the island to help the unfortunate Muslim refugees who are fleeing war in their native countries.

Syrian refugee men

Syrian refugee men. At another time in history they would be called invaders. In 2015 Trump wanted to know why they weren’t fighting for their own country. The answer is that they see the whole world as theirs.  Photo: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3326456/Trump-blasts-Syrian-refugees-look-like-soldiers-pledges-turn-away-president-says-certainly-implement-database-track-U-S-Muslims.html

“I’ll tell you strictly Muslim-to-Muslim,” A. said in good English after having poured down a few shots of whiskey. “These (European social workers) are funny guys. And they’re not just funny. They’re also silly. I don’t know why on earth they are in love with a Muslim cause that even some of us Muslims despise.”

Last year, three Afghans stopped in front of my house on the same island and asked for drinking water. I gave them three bottles and asked if they needed anything else. Coffee? They accepted and sat down in the garden chairs.

Over coffee, they said they were glad to be hosted “not by an infidel on this infidel island” but by a Muslim. The young Afghan who was dressed like a dancer from a cheap hip-hop clip on MTV said, “One day we good Muslims will conquer their infidel lands.” I asked why he was receiving “infidel” money for living. “It’s just halal,” he answered. “They [‘infidels’] are too easy to fool.”

M., another fluently English-speaking Syrian, gave me a long lecture on the wonderful governance of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. “Turkey is the best country in the world!” M. said. “ Erdoğan is the leader of the ummah.” I asked why he had risked his life to cross illegally from the “best country in the world” to the “poor, infidel lands.” “I want to go to Europe to increase the Muslim population there,” he said. “I want to make a Muslim family there. I want to have plenty of children.” I reminded him that Greece, too, is a European country. No it’s not, he answered.

Almost all the illegal migrants on that and other Greek islands want to get to Germany, where they have heard from friends and relatives that they will be the best paid for being “poor” refugees.

Paid well while making Muslim babies!

Afghan refugees living in Sacramento squalor

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 28, 2017

This is an old story, in fact it is a story from when Obama was still in the White House, but here it is in the UK Mirror on Saturday.  One can only assume its purpose now is to make Trump’s America look bad.

However, it isn’t Trump’s America that made these refugees live this way—placed in substandard housing fearing the inner city scum preying on them. (Hint! It isn’t white nationalists stealing their stuff either!).

More evidence that the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program should be suspended and investigated!

Out of date by over year, the news is important to make my point—the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program should be suspended and investigated!  President Donald Trump has a window of opportunity to do it right now—in advance of Fiscal Year 2018 which begins October first!  See here.

Even (most especially!) if you are a ‘humanitarian’ and don’t give a damn about the costs to the US taxpayer, about your security or terrorism, or your health, you should be joining a chorus demanding an investigation of the resettlement contractors*** who placed these Afghans in dirty and dangerous housing.

Here is a photo from the Mirror.  There are lots more (all with captions criticizing the US now under Donald Trump’s presidency).

Afghan interpreters

Unhappy Afghan young men (they say they helped the US in Afghanistan so they have a special refugee category) now living jobless in squalor in Sacramento County.  Good for America? Or, bringing us closer to chaos.

 

The Mirror is just using information gained in a 2016 investigation by the Sacramento Bee:

Aging suburban neighborhoods in unincorporated Sacramento County now have the biggest concentration of substandard rental apartments in the region – a reality reflected in a recent Bee series on Afghan refugees.

One area in particular, Arden Arcade, has become a problem. The Bee series, “No Safe Place,” documented how former interpreters and other Afghans who worked alongside U.S. forces in the war have been placed in run-down apartments infested by bedbugs and roaches. County documents show the problems go far beyond that. In recent months, inspectors have also found potentially life-threatening dry rot in three Arden Arcade apartment complexes that house many of the Afghan refugees.

[….]

To some degree, the county relies on complaints from residents to enforce building codes, Chamberlain [Barry Chamberlain, the county’s code enforcement chief] said. He said it’s unlikely that the Afghan refugees filed code complaints with the county, perhaps because some of them can’t speak English well. He said he wasn’t aware of the concentration of Afghan refugees in some complexes until he was interviewed by The Bee.

For the most part, the refugees have been placed in the complexes by four resettlement agencies: International Rescue Committee; World Relief; Opening Doors; and the Sacramento Food Bank, most of which have headquarters within a few miles of the complexes.  [Opening Doors is a subcontractor of Church World Service—ed]

They say it’s growing increasingly difficult to find affordable housing for the refugees, who lack a U.S. credit history. In Arden Arcade, most of the refugees interviewed by The Bee say they pay around $700 a month in rent.

More here.

Back in 2008 I reported on a letter-to-the-editor from an Iraqi teenager living in Arizona.  He made this logical comment about the large numbers of Iraqis (applies to Afghans too!) who are resettled in the US and then find themselves jobless, disillusioned and unhappy.  He said:

It is better to have 10 Iraqi refugees who are satisfied with their lives than having 100 angry ones with no life at all.

And, if that Iraqi boy can figure that out, why can’t the refugee industry contractors, the US Congress and the White House!

The answer isn’t to throw more money at the refugee program. The answer is to bring only the number of refugees that taxpayers can afford!

*** For new readers, these are the Federal contractors/middlemen/employment agencies/propagandists/lobbyists/community organizers? paid by you to place refugees in your towns and cities listed below.  Under the nine major contractors are hundreds of subcontractors.

The contractors income is largely dependent on taxpayer dollars based on the number of refugees admitted to the US and because of that they have NO incentive to slow the flow.

If you are a good-hearted soul and still think refugee resettlement is all about humanitarianism, think again! Big businesses/global corporations depend on the free flow of cheap (some call it slave) labor.  It is for this reason that Republican leaders of Congress are supportive of an uninterrupted flow of refugees into America.

The only way for real reform of how the US admits refugees is to remove these contractors/Leftwing activists/big business head hunters from the process.  (The three identified by the Sacramento Bee in this story are highlighted in red.)

Howie Carr: Afghan Army deserter gets asylum in US, let the welfare goodies flow….

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 5, 2015

This is a quick post to update a story we first mentioned here.  Afgahan military officer, Arash, was originally denied asylum, but won an appeal and can now stay here, live off the US taxpayer, and eventually vote.

Carr: Arash now gets the “full Tsarnaev!”

Read all about Afghan Army deserter, Jan Arash, below in an opinion piece by Boston radio talk show host Howie Carr.  Here come the welfare goodies!  Hat tip: Joanne.

Boston Herald:

Afghan army deserter Jan Arash hit the jackpot last week — he’s been granted “asylum” in the U.S., which means he can now go on welfare, bring his entire family over from their Third World hellhole and put them on the dole, too, forever.

“He’s overjoyed,” said his lawyer.

And why wouldn’t he be?

This is what millions of Third Worlders aspire to — a permanent vacation at U.S. taxpayer expense. Call it the Tsarnaev lottery, only it’s not a lottery because there’s no element of chance. The illegals always win — and America loses.

You may recall that this yellow traitor to his country was one of three Afghan soldiers who came to Camp Edwards on Cape Cod last year, purportedly to study emergency planning. They quickly fled to Zachary’s Pub, a local strip club in Mashpee. It didn’t take more than one or two lap dances to decide to remain here in the Great Satan forever.

How you gonna keep ’em down on the jihad once they’ve seen Zachary’s? And once they find out that … everything’s on Uncle Sam, including the “back rubs”?

They deserted and took a cab to Niagara Falls — $1,600! Then they demanded asylum. One was allowed to stay in Canada, which is Canada’s problem. The other two, including Arash, were jailed after they claimed asylum on the grounds that they were afraid of the Taliban.

Continue reading, it gets better!

For new readers, the asylum process is also a part of the Refugee Act of 1980.  The difference between refugees and asylum seekers is that we fly the mostly UN-chosen refugees in and asylum seekers get in here on their own steam (overstay a Visa, enter illegally, or, like Arash, desert) and then claim asylum saying they will be persecuted if sent home.  Once granted asylum, the asylum seeker becomes a full-fledged refugee and eligible for myriad social services gratis the US taxpayer.

By the way, the vast majority of those flowing across US borders are economic migrants who are pretending to be legitimate asylum seekers.  The same holds true for Europe’s invaders.

Another refugee off to the slammer on terrorism charges, this one from Afghanistan

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 26, 2015

Ho hum!  To tell you the truth I’m getting sick of these cases where we generously give “refugees” from Muslim countries asylum and they turn around and become killers, rapists or jihadists and taxpayers then must pay for an expensive trial and support them for years in prison.

Really, there should be a special fund set up in the US State Department budget to pay for the trials and prison time!  I know, I know, it is still taxpayer money, but maybe if it had to come out of the State Department’s hide they might choose refugees more wisely from the list the UN gives them!

From Banning-Beaumont Patch (hat tip: ‘Pungentpeppers’):

Trial of Afghan refugee Sohiel Omar Kabir in Riverside. Sentencing judge: he betrayed our hospitality.

Two Southern California men who planned to commit “violent jihad” against American troops by joining terrorist groups in Afghanistan were each sentenced Monday to 25 years in federal prison.

Sohiel Omar Kabir, 36, of Pomona and Ralph Kenneth DeLeon, 26, of Ontario, were convicted last September following a nearly month long trial at the federal courthouse in downtown Riverside.

Kabir was found guilty of two counts of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and one count each of conspiring to kill American troops and conspiring to receive military training from al-Qaida.

[….]

In pronouncing sentence for Kabir, Phillips said it was “hard to understate the seriousness of the offense.”

“It wasn’t just talk,” she said. “We’ve seen all too often how little it takes for young men to cause havoc and loss of life. Just because his plan didn’t come to fruition — it doesn’t reduce the seriousness of what he intended to do.”

Kabir’s attorney, Federal Public Defender Jeffrey Aaron, argued for a 10- year prison term, citing mitigating factors, including what he said was his client’s low I.Q. Phillips was not swayed, pointing out that Kabir’s own family had acknowledged he was intelligent, though admittedly “lazy.”

The judge said Kabir had been given every break after his family fled to the U.S. as refugees and were given asylum.

“He is an example of someone who betrayed the hospitality extended to him by this country,” Phillips said.

Yup!

I haven’t forgotten that I have to say more about the Uzbek alleged terrorists we have let in, but I truly am sick of these stories!

In the West: A Modern Form of Afghan “Bacha Bazi” Pedophilia? (Part One)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on January 28, 2015

Update February 3rd:  World Net Daily does the story, here.

Editor:  This is another excellent news analysis from ‘Pungentpeppers’ who reports that there is more to come regarding this dreadful ‘diversity is beautiful’ alert….

The destruction of Afghanistan’s boys. Has this insidious sexual abuse come to America with the refugee population? Photo: http://www.ryot.org/bacha-bazi-afghanistan-pashtun-child-abuse-christian-stephen/912777

A HI-TECH AFGHAN-AMERICAN CRIME:  Police in California have arrested Qayed Murtaza Shareef, 39, the CEO of a technology company. Shareef allegedly engaged in ‘sexually explicit conversations’ with a pair of 9- and 10-year-old boys in Virginia, using an online texting application called Tango.

Shareef pretended to be a teenaged boy named “Jeremy Stevens”.  He acted like a film director and told the boys what sex acts he wanted them to perform with each other while he was photographing and videotaping them through a tablet they were using. He also shared adult pornography with the boys, including demonstrations of his own sexual performances.

From ABC7 (Los Angeles):

“He basically just started it off, ‘Hey what’s your age?’ And within an hour, took it sexual,” said prosecutor Vanessa Woods. “He sent photos and videos of himself, as well as pornographic videos.”

Authorities say the 39-year-old then gave instructions to the boys to record each other and to him send the photos and videos.

“He was very specifically asking them to do various sexual positions, acts, show sexual body parts,” Woods said.

Prosecutors say the crimes allegedly started Christmas Day 2013 and lasted four days. Investigators discovered 30 different videos of sex acts after being contacted by the boy’s mother.

The mother of one of the boys found the messages when she checked the tablet on December 30, 2013.  She then notified police in Virginia. Because of the complexity of the case, requiring multiple subpoenas, the investigation took almost a year.  If convicted, Shareef faces a maximum sentence of 752 years to life in state prison. He is being held on $2 million bail. There are likely more victims yet to be identified.  Anyone with information should contact Orange County investigators at the Patch link below.

THE PERPETRATOR:  Born in Afghanistan, Qayed Shareef had achieved the American Dream.  He arrived in the U.S. with his mother and brother when he was eleven years old.  They were refugees fleeing from one of Afghanistan’s many wars.  His father, who was a fighter, stayed behind.  Once in California, Shareef learned to speak English with barely a trace of an accent.  He became an expert in internet media advertising and technology and worked his way up to be the CEO of Adaptive Media, a publicly traded corporation he founded based in Irvine, California.  He also married and became a father.  He has since been terminated from his job.

“BACHA BAZI”:  Growing up in Afghan society, Shareef must have witnessed Bacha Bazi – if he wasn’t a victim of it himself.  “Bacha Bazi” means “Boy Play” and it is pervasive and deeply rooted in Afghanistan’s tribal culture where women are taboo and must remain hidden.  Bacha Bazi is sometimes portrayed as men acting something like our “drag queens”, but Afghan style, and they dance at parties. That’s a whitewash of the insidious and sinister nature of Bacha Bazi.

Young boys become drawn into the play acting – and much more than dancing is involved.  Usually the boys are poor and vulnerable in some way.  Perhaps Shareef, with an absent father, fell into the trap.

The boys who are abused are generally between the ages of 8 and 16 – or the ages of Shareef’s victims.  They are forced to dress like women, dance like women, and perform sexually in the place of women.  Once they mature and their beards starts to grow, they are expected to switch roles and start acting like men. Often they themselves go on to obtain their own boys to abuse, and thus continue the cycle. Commonly, a newly-matured former boy marries the daughter of his own abuser, in order that the father could maintain his sexual relationship with him.

“As a culture that has repeatedly allowed the victimisation of young men by their elders, and turned survivors into abusers, Afghanistan has unleashed multiple generations of predators and traumatised young men.” [See “Hand Covers Bruise …” Link below.]

At least one of those Afghan predators found his way to Australia. …… To Be Continued.

Afghan teen shot dead in Australia after stabbing counter-terrorism officers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 23, 2014

Breaking news from Down Under thanks to ‘pungentpeppers.’ 

It was just a few days ago Australian authorities arrested suspected Jihadists in a massive terror bust, here.  Now this….

From the Herald Sun:

One of many photos from the crime scene

UPDATE: A MUSLIM teen shot dead after he stabbed two counter-terrorism officers was a member of a radical Islamic group that was raided in Melbourne’s southeast two years ago.

Islamic Council of Victoria secretary Ghaith Krayem said members of Al Furqan told him that the 18-year-old Afghani man, described this morning as a “known terror suspect”, hadn’t been a part of the group for a while.

Al Furqan Information Centre in Springvale South was raided by counter-terrorism squads in 2012. It is thought the teenager came to the authorities attention following the raids.

It comes as police say they had “no choice” but to shoot dead the Narre Warren man after he stabbed the two officers outside Endeavour Hills police station last night.

The Joint Counter Terrorism Taskforce had been monitoring the teenager for a number of months, Victoria Police chief commissioner Ken Lay said.

There is a lot more plus photos, here.

Utah! Why the h*** do we have to put up with this?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 11, 2014

‘Pungentpeppers’ sent us this story from Utah a couple of days ago—it’s about Afghan refugees bringing their Islamic culture clashes and their violence to your communities.    It is long, and annoys me so much I could barely read the article.

And, for Utah political leaders, what the heck are you thinking allowing your lovely state to be the doormat for the kinds of people resettlement contractors are dropping off?  Didn’t you get an earful with the gruesome murder trial of a Burmese Muslim man who was convicted earlier this year for raping and killing a little girl (she died in excruciating pain)?

For citizens of Utah, if the culture clashes aren’t bothering you, aren’t you at least asking elected officials what all this crime and violence is costing taxpayers?

By the way, if you are thinking it’s the Mormon Church dropping off the Muslims, it isn’t.  The federally-funded refugee contractors in Utah are:  The International Rescue Committee, Catholic Community Services, Jewish Family Service and the Asian Association of Utah.

Haji Rahimi, the patriarch of the family.

Now here is the lengthy and complicated tale of the Afghan refugees, clashing, quarreling (and killing).

Read the sob story that opens the article.  I am so cynical, I don’t believe it.   I think the family fabricated their tale of woe to get in here.

From City Weekly:

After the tale of woe:

After a year of waiting, Haji Rahimi, his wife, three daughters, son Nisar, the two widows of their eldest sons and their children were granted political asylum in the United States in 2000. They flew into Chicago, and from there to Utah, where they settled.

[….]

But while the Rahimis thought they’d left violence behind them, the very cultural values that Haji had advocated against in Pakistan were waiting for them in Utah. Nazir’s relationship with Nargis Mullahkhel—an Afghan single mother in the middle of a divorce, at odds with her family’s strict cultural values—led to friction, then violence between the two families, and ultimately to the death of Nargis’ 19-year-old brother and Nazir spending five years in prison for his killing.

Although the police who investigated the killing never got to the bottom of exactly how and why it happened, the Rahimi family’s story and court documents suggest that at the heart of the tragedy lies not only a clash between modern and traditional Islam, but also the struggle of immigrant families to both assimilate within American society and retain their cultural identities, even if those identities may sometimes chafe with American cultural values and laws.

Chafe with American values and laws?  Chafe with?  WTH!  Why are we putting up with ‘retaining cultural identity’ when it ‘chafes with’ ours?

Diana West nailed it!

Remember the Iraqi and Somali Muslims are pouring into the US right now, and soon the flood gates will open for more Afghans and Syrians to arrive in your “welcoming” cities.

NY: Killing people with knives runs in family of Afghan refugee brothers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 20, 2014

Diversity is beautiful alert!

One blogger suggests there was an honor killing motivation involved in at least one of the stabbings.

Before you hear the rest of the story, remember New York state is one of our top five refugee resettlement states in the US and also in the top five states with large Muslim populations.

I wonder how much these murdering brothers cost the state of New York?  Shouldn’t the US State Department share some of the cost burden of their trials and incarceration?

From Henrietta, NY (a town near Rochester), Democrat and Chronicle (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

Murder scene at Thali of India Restaurant, Henrietta, NY

An Afghan man admitted Friday that he stabbed his brother to death as his brother dined alone at a popular Indian restaurant in Henrietta.

Ahmad Jawed Mohammad-Askar, 29, pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter Friday before state Supreme Court Justice Francis Affronti. Under the plea agreement, his sentence will be 25 years.

Mohammad-Askar and his brother, 29-year-old Mohamed Ghulam, both worked at the Thali of India Restaurant at 3259 S. Winton Rd. in Henrietta. Speaking through an interpreter Friday, Mohammad-Askar said he stabbed his brother Sept. 17 as his brother ate about a half-hour before the restaurant was scheduled to open for lunch.

I wouldn’t hold my breath about this deportation suggestion.  His lawyers will claim he will be killed if sent back to his hell-hole country.

Mohammad-Askar, who is living here legally, could face deportation after his release from prison.

Then see this!  Honor murders run in family?

Blogger ‘a12iggymom’s Blog’ reported on this murder and an earlier one in the same family via the ‘Rochester Democrat’ last September.  It is not clear to me whether the younger brother actually killed his cousin or just stabbed her in the neck 12 times!  ***update*** the girl survived the stabbing.

Mohammad-Askar and Ghulam are brothers of Faheem Abdul-Jaleel, who was 16 when he stabbed his 13-year-old cousin, Samina Qasim, 12 times in the neck at the family’s Henrietta home on Myrtlewood Drive on June 20, 2011. Authorities said he hid her behind a garbage can with her mouth covered with duct tape and fled the home.

The three brothers were refugees from Afghanistan whose parents were killed when they were young and who came to the United States and settled with their aunt in Henrietta, said John Bradley, the assistant public defender who represented Abdul-Jaleel.

So, let’s see, we have three brothers offered a good life in America (at great expense to American taxpayers), one is dead, and two will be in prison for years at great expense to American taxpayers.  Good deal for America?

And, you can bet, as we pull out of Afghanistan, more charming “refugees” like these will be on the way to your home town!  Surely, Wyoming will get a few!

I wish we had made a category for ‘refugee murder cases’ (I never dreamed there would be so many!),  but since we didn’t, you will find this one and many others in our ‘crimes’ category (1,434 previous posts).

Afghan SIV applicants say US government dragging its feet on visas

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 10, 2014

Special Immigrant Visa program was Sen. Ted Kennedy’s dark-of-night addition to Defense Authorization bill. Kennedy was also the power behind the Refugee Act of 1980.

The Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) is a program passed by Congress in the the dark of night in 2007 spearheaded by Senator Ted Kennedy, here is a document explaining how those who supposedly helped the US in the Iraq war, and their families, can get into the US where they will reap all the benefits refugees receive (welfare etc.).  Here is a description of the Afghan SIV program.

You might want to see our previous post about one Afghan interpreter and his family arrested in New York.

From the Seattle Times (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

Thousands of Afghans who have served as U.S. military interpreters and who now fear for their lives are waiting in limbo to hear about their applications to move to the U.S. Though Congress authorized 8,750 visas for Afghan interpreters, only 1,982 had been issued through Dec. 10.

Stars of the Seattle Times story say they have already proven their loyalty to America and now want the US to “return the favor.”

For Nazari, who has worked for the U.S. military since 2006, years of waiting have left him confused and demoralized — and at risk of retaliation from insurgents who he says know what he does.

“We’re living in the 21st century,” Nazari said, speaking flawless English while sipping tea at a Kabul guesthouse. “If the State Department wants to find out if I’m a bad guy or a terrorist, just check their computer databases. It should take five minutes, not five years.”

Sardar Khan, 26, who has translated for the U.S. military since 2007, said he has waited nearly two years for a decision on his SIV application. He jokes that he and other applicants have “SIV syndrome” from constantly checking a State Department website for updates on their cases.

“We have already proved our honesty and loyalty to the United States,” Khan said. “All we ask now is for the United States to return the favor.”

Convicted Iraqi refugee terrorists got through old screening system and yet Obama now makes it even easier to get through!

US State Department says they are speeding things up, but are apparently still haunted by those Iraqi refugee terrorists convicted in Kentucky.

Jarrett Blanc, deputy special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, said the State Department improved its processing times last year and has issued more Afghan interpreter visas during the latest fiscal year than in any previous year, a tenfold increase over 2012. In the last three months of the fiscal year that ended Oct. 1, he said, the U.S. Embassy in Kabul issued more interpreter visas than in the previous four years.

The department has also begun an appeals process for interpreters turned down at the embassy level, sped up the visa process for approved applicants and is doing more to spread word about the SIV program.

“We are committed to helping those who — at great personal risk — have helped us,” Blanc said.

Officials are concerned that Afghans with ties to insurgents or terrorists will slip through the vetting process. The 2011 arrests of two Iraqi refugees in Kentucky on terrorism charges slowed the visa process, though neither had been an interpreter.  [Of course, now we can expect the vetting process to be relaxed!—ed]

The Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project calls the SIV process “prohibitively complicated, bureaucratic and opaque.” The group, which also assists Afghans, says more than 5,000 Afghan applicants are backlogged. It says only 6,675 of the 25,000 visas authorized for Iraqi interpreters have been issued.

In December, Congress extended the Iraq SIV program through Sept. 30, but failed to extend the Afghan program, which expires Sept. 30.

To readers:  The next time you hear someone say I oppose illegal immigration, but legal immigration is a good thing, know that they don’t know what they are talking about!
