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

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 26, 2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

I was shocked!

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

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

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

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

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

Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch): Wouldn’t you think that cutting off the spigot of Islamic immigration would be part of any plan to keep us safe?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 24, 2015

Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily has yet another important read about the Refugee Admissions Program of the US State Department and he quotes Islam expert Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch asking that fundamental question about the Obama Administration’s “comprehensive approach” to taking on the ISIS/Islamist threat to America.

World Net Daily (emphasis is mine):

Homeland Security Chief Jeh Johnson warned that a Somalia-based terrorist group is encouraging “independent actors” to carry out attacks in Western countries, with the Mall of America in Minnesota among the specific targets, but he failed to mention that the U.S. continues to import hundreds of high-risk Islamic refugees from Somalia every month.

Like so many outside the State Department, I’m going to bet that Homeland Security chief Johnson has no real understanding of the more than three-decade-old refugee resettlement program that is responsible for a large percentage of the Muslim population in the US.

The U.S. State Department’s refugee-resettlement program has placed more than 100,000 Somalis into U.S cities and towns since the early 1990s – all of them Muslims hand-selected by the United Nations refugee agency. And Minnesota has become the most popular destination, with secondary hotspots in Maine, Ohio, Colorado and southern California. More than 800 new refugees from Somalia arrive in the United States every month, according to Refugee Resettlement Watch.

The constant influx has earned parts of Minneapolis the nickname “Little Mogadishu.”

Johnson told CNN Sunday that terrorist groups such as Somalia-based al-Shabab are “relying more and more on independent actors to become inspired” and “attack on their own.”

But he made no mention in any of his interviews on Sunday morning news shows of the program that brings these potential “independent actors” to the U.S. in the first place.

Johnson said there was a need for a “comprehensive” approach to fighting the ever-present threat posed by terror groups, including al-Shabab and the Islamic State or ISIS.

One would think that cutting off the spigot of Islamic immigration would play a role in any truly comprehensive approach, said Islam expert Robert Spencer, who runs the JihadWatch blog at the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

To talk about tackling the problem without addressing the refugee pipeline is disingenuous, Spencer said.

“The government’s ‘concern’ about these threats is completely undercut by the Obama administration’s immigration policies,” said Spencer. “More than 800 Somalis a month are entering the country.”

[….]

In fiscal year 2014 the U.S. admitted 9,000 Somali refugees. In the first four months of fiscal 2015 the U.S. admitted 3,536 new Somali refugees, or 884 per month.

 

Be sure to read the whole article and see what Pamela Geller (Atlas Shrugged) and Debra Anderson, a resident of Minneapolis, had to say!

See our latest stats on which states have received the most Somali refugees in the last ten years.

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

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 24, 2015

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

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

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

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

Back to the data…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(Any state over 1,000 is in red)

Alabama:  207

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

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 22, 2015

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

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

Screen shot from the Al-Shabaab video.

From Twincities.com:

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

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

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

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

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

[….]

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

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

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

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

For new readers (and hopefully media types!) 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Minneapolis: Basketball will keep Somali youths away from the Jihadists

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 20, 2015

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 19, 2015

See below for the Emporia, KS connection!

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

Here is My San Antonio:

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

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

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

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

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

Now look at this!

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

There is more here.

Emporia, KS connection

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

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

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

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

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

How many more Ibrahims are out there?

Good ol’ Joe: I have a great relationship with Somali cabbies in Wilmington

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 17, 2015

I am so cool, I have Somali friends! And, there are an awful lot of them!

Update February 19th:  O.K. Delaware residents can rest easy today.  Fact checkers give ol’ Joe four pinocchios when they couldn’t find a single Somali cab driver in Wilmington.  And it is no wonder because you can count on two hands (at most!) the number of refugees resettled in Delaware every year!

Update February 18th:  I see this morning that Joe’s Somali comments are being reported widely as somehow another of Biden’s racial gaffs, however, not one of the reports I have seen have made the connection that Somalis are in America thanks to Biden, Kennedy and Jimmy Carter when they opened widely the refugee pipeline to America in 1980!

It is so scary to realize who we have running our government with Obama not seeing the exponentially growing worldwide trend of Islamic brutality, and now here is VP Joe Biden telling us about his new found pals in the Wilmington, Delaware Somali ‘community.’

Of course this is on the eve of the sure-to-be-wimpy ‘Countering Violent Extremism’ pow-wow that will probably gloss over the problems emanating from the Somali ‘community’ of Minneapolis where since at least late 2007 Somali ‘youths’ we gave refuge to have said s**** you America and have headed off to jihad training around the world.

And, probably poor ol’ Joe hasn’t made the connection that he and his former Democratic mob boss in the Senate—Sen. Ted Kennedy, authors of the Refugee Act of 1980—are responsible for the growing Somali community in Wilmington and across the country.

You know what is funny?—Delaware has only ever resettled a tiny number of refugees (did Joe make sure that the number stayed small?).  But, these Somalis are secondary migrants who were resettled elsewhere in America and are now spreading out (colonizing!) as the Islamic Doctrine of Immigration tells them to do and Joe’s hometown is fair game!

LOL!  I bet Joe is popular with them because they know exactly what they are doing to America and Joe hasn’t a clue (kind of like when some kids play a trick on a doddering old man)!

From the Business Insider (hat tip: Robin):

Vice President Joe Biden says he’s quite popular with the Somali community of Wilmington, Delaware. If you want proof, he suggests you should talk to some local cab drivers.

“If you ever come to the train station with me, you’ll notice that I have great relationships with them because there’s an awful lot of them driving cabs and are friends of mine. For real,” Biden said Tuesday at a summit on violent extremism, according to video posted by The Washington Post.

Biden made his remarks while noting the large number of East African immigrants in Minnesota.

“In Minneapolis-€“Saint Paul, we’re working to build relationships with the East African immigrants who have made your city their home. As the same folks, Somalis, who have made made my city of Wilmington, Delaware, [their home] on a smaller scale,” he said. “It’s a large, very identifiable Somali community.”

For new readers:  The US State Department, thanks to former Senator and now VP Biden, has resettled well over 100,000 Somalis to America in the last couple of decades—last year the number bumped up to 9,000!   There had been a little slowdown starting in 2008 when the State Department discovered the massive fraud perpetrated by mostly Somalis claiming they were related to Somalis who got in previously.  A moratorium on family reunification was in place for several years.

Three-fourths of Norway’s Somali refugee children live in poverty; why we should stop importing poverty

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 14, 2015

I don’t think this news surprises anyone, but what does it mean as this generation grows up—not just for Norway, but throughout Europe and the world for people without jobs and ultimately nothing to do all day?

Yesterday I happened to catch a bit of a Glenn Beck interview I want to share with you.  Beck can be pretty doom and gloom, but what his guest was saying we can already see happening in parts of Europe.  So why do we think we will be spared the societal chaos?

Somali women protesting in Oslo a few years ago. http://globalpublicsquare.blogs.cnn.com/category/current-events/

First Norway, from The Local:

Three quarters of children of Somali origin in Norway now live in poverty, according to new figures from Statistics Norway, and numbers are on the rise.

Children from Somalia have been over-represented in the poverty statistics for years, but the proportion of children living in families with persistently low income has risen during the last year, Norwegian state broadcaster NRK has reported.

Other immigrant groups are also struggling, with more than half of poor children in Norway now living in immigrant households. Afghani and Iraqi groups also have high levels of poverty, yet none rival the Somalis.

Beck interview with Jason Calacanis on the not too distant future (a few decades!) as jobs become more scarce for a whole host of reasons.

We better be planning for this as we admit more and more low-skilled migrants to America.  This is Beck’s transcript that I cleaned up a little (What does the future hold? Glenn talks to entrepreneur and angel investor Jason Calacanis):

CALACANIS: You can see what it looks like. If you go to the Middle East, if you go to some of the under-performing European countries, referred to as the PIGS, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Spain, and you see what happens when 20-something-year-old males hit 20, 30, 40% unemployment, it means riots in the street. And it could mean people hanging out, drinking coffee all day, getting a stipend from the government, looking for somebody to hate for their lot in life. And having a lack of purpose in life is dangerous. Those are the people who can get picked up presently easily by people who are using religion to do bad things in the world and drugs and just whatever?

Beck then asked, well what do we do? You won’t like some of Calacanis’s answers! But, at least he has some ideas! However, he suggests that few in leadership positions are even thinking about it.

How about we save ourselves and start with not overloading America with new poverty!

See our Norway archive here.

By the way, we are on target to resettle 10,000 more Somalis to the US this fiscal year which brings our grand total now way over 100,000.

State Department downplays Somali refugee concerns about new banking restrictions

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 13, 2015

I’ve been meaning to at least report on the latest round of angst over restrictions on sending American money from the Somali ‘community’ here to Somalia.  Of course the banks are worried that the dollars (that probably came through various US welfare programs) will end up in the hands of terrorists.

State Department Spokeswoman Psaki (of the beaded necklaces): no big deal that they can’t send cash to Somalia.

So, here is a report from Foreign Policy summing up where things stand now.  As expected, Rep. Keith Ellison is going to bat for his Minnesota Somali constituents.

Remember readers that the remittance practice is a big deal and is an important driver for migrants of all sorts to get here—those Central American governments, happy to see their ‘children’ go to America, are driven by the desire for the cold hard cash that the migrants send home.  The cash thus leaves the US economy.

Foreign Policy:

Many companies that send money from immigrants in the United States to friends and family in Somalia shut down this week, but the State Department doesn’t see any need for an emergency response.

State spokeswoman Jen Psaki downplayed the impact that a cutoff of remittances could have on millions of Somalis who the U.N. says depend on the money for basic survival. It would be a “stretch,” Psaki said Wednesday, to connect remittances to economic opportunity in Somalia.

Psaki said the U.S. government had “engaged in ongoing communication with the Somali community in the United States and financial institutions serving that community” in an effort to effectively regulate remittances and keep them from financing terrorism.

At issue is the fallout from a decision by the main bank facilitating international wire transfers to Somalia to close the accounts used to hold and then send the money. Merchants Bank of California, which handled 60 to 80 percent of those funds, closed all Somali accounts on Friday, as Foreign Policy was the first to report. The closure was a result of regulatory pressure on banks to verify where the money is going to make sure it isn’t funding terrorism, which is hard to do in Somalia because the country doesn’t have a central bank or formal banking system.

[….]

Oxfam, the humanitarian organization, responded to Psaki’s comment by pointing out that Somalia receives $1.3 billion in remittances every year, which is more than the country gets in aid or foreign investment.

“It is critical that the Department of State recognize the catastrophic consequences that the current disruption in remittances will have in Somalia,” Scott Paul, a senior advisor for Oxfam America, said in an emailed statement.

There is more, see what Rep. Keith Ellison has to say, here.

For the many new readers who joined us yesterday, we have resettled over 100,000 Somali refugees to the US in the last couple of decades, here.  Minneapolis is ground zero because of the refugee contractors operating there which include:  Catholic Charities, Lutheran Social Service, and the evangelicals, World Relief (new name is Arrive Ministries), here.  The original attraction of Minnesota was its generous welfare system.

The US State Department and its contractors brought in 9,000 new Somalis to America in 2014 and are on target for 10,000 this year.  They will be distributed around the country.
