They are called Special Immigrant Visa holders (SIVs for short) and they supposedly helped the US in some way (or they could have helped an NGO!), sometimes as interpreters. They and their immediate family members are welcomed to the US and treated with the same package of goodies refugees receive.
Also, we are told that the resettlement contractors are paid (by you) to place them as well, and those funds we’ve heard are helping to keep the contractors from completely going belly-up!
(See my post yesterdayabout the number of regular refugees admitted this fiscal year, the number is relatively low, but the SIV number is not! 2,196 Muslims were admitted as regular refugees, but add to that 9,166 Afghan Muslims in the last 11 months!)
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 checkedWrapsnet (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.)
…much to my surprise I see that Burmese Muslims (Rohingya) top the list!
That is what Syrian ‘refugees’ told writer Burak Bekdil 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.
“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.
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 UKMirror 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).
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.
Back in 2008I 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.)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Update February 3rd:World Net Dailydoes 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….
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.
“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.
