One more refugee crime case where in addition to the pain and suffering he caused, not only did we pay for his resettlement, but taxpayers will pay for his trial and incarceration for life. I think the cost of criminal trials of refugees and the cost of their time in prison should come out of the US State Department’s budget and out of the contractors’ hides. Of course it is still all your tax money, but at least it might cause the resettlement industry to be more careful about who they bring to your towns and cities.
By the way, we have 1,556 posts in our ‘crimes’ category, here. Happy reading!
Back in February, the Eagle Forum produced a reportthat could serve as a blueprint for any Republican running for office about how campaigning on the issue of reducing immigration numbers (yes, even LEGAL immigration) is a winner.
And, it isn’t just about winning the election, but saving the Republic.
The report went largely unnoticed by the establishment Republican Party (they probably actually panned it, but I haven’t the time to search).
In fact, the hard core establishment Republicans are largely influenced by the likes of Grover Norquist and his ilk (here and here) who are in the business of promoting the idea of needing laborers (cheap labor) for their big business clients. It is about the almighty dollar for many of the so-called leaders of the Republican Party. (The Democrats too, it’s just that they have that humanitarian white hat firmly planted on their heads and they have another interest as well—reliably leftwing voters***.)
Now to make it easier for all of us to get the salient points from the report, Paul Nachman at VDARE has a post today on the main messages in the report (even more timely now than when it was released in February) and has taken the time to select key bullet points for us.
To impress obdurately clueless Republican candidates and supporters of what’s at stake, here’s the concluding thought in both the full report and the two-page excerpt from it:
The GOP faces a choice: It can either change its position on legal immigration or it can change its position on almost every other issue.
And then this from the excerpts:
A comprehensive review of surveys in immigrant communities showing their support for big government
A large volume of survey data show that, in general, immigrants and their adult children are significantly more liberal than the average American voter on a host of policy issues, including the size of government, Obamacare, affirmative action, gun control, greater environmental regulation, and other issues championed by the Left …
Because immigrants and their adult children overwhelmingly favor big government, there is no issue more important for conservatives than reducing the future number of legal immigrants allowed into the country each year. Otherwise, legal immigration will continue to add millions of liberal voters every decade, making it extremely unlikely that conservatives will be successful on all the issues they care about.
So the next time you hear someone, especially a Republican candidate for public office say, ‘I’m all for legal immigration, it’s illegal that I oppose,’ I want you to remember this report (new immigrants vote for Democrats who promise them stuff!) and remind them that most of those illegal aliens streaming across our border at this very moment will soon be LEGAL immigrants one way or another—quickly through an executive amnesty or more slowly in the legal asylum process.
Hard information on the phony refugee (“The children!”) surge at the Southwest border is hard to come by. This is true even if you’re a congressman—when Jim Bidenstine (R- OK) showed up at a holding camp in his home state he was stonewalled.
Between the ballot boxes (months away) and “the streets” (rare to nonexistent in American history) there’s citizen pressure on our despotic elites and their kept bureaucrats.
This is where VDARE.com readers come in. Are swarms of “The children!” coming to your state?
If they are, your state’s refugee coordinator will probably be among the first to know.So phone “your” coordinator – contact information is below—and, politely, ask basic questions such as Where? When? How Many? and What’s it going to cost state and local taxpayers?
The week starting Monday, July 7 is the time to phone, as VDARE.com has learned that at least some of the coordinators will be on a conference call with the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement during the week. It will help if the coordinators are made to understand that many of their fellow citizens are very concerned.
Read it all for more information and to follow the links!
Here and below is a complete list of Refugee resettlement employees in your state, if you can’t get the coordinator, try one of the others especially see the contact information for “regional reps.” Even those “health coordinators” are going to be informed in light of the health issues the “children” will be bringing to the state.
Editors note: Daily readers know that the US State Department asks for testimonyevery year on the “size and scope” of the Refugee Admissions program for the upcoming fiscal year.
In past years in addition to mailing in testimony, the State Department invited members of the public to appear and comment in person. This year that did not happen and we can only assume the long-established procedure was abandoned as members of the public who had concerns about the program came to outnumber the contractors and their supporters (I joked with one of our friends there two years ago that I bet everyone in the room was there on salary except us!)
This year only mailed-in testimony was accepted. If you sent testimony and would like it published, please send it to us for our consideration. And, don’t forget to send it to all of your elected officials!
So that testimony doesn’t disappear into a black hole, write to Delicia Spruell (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask for the entire public record of the consultation/hearing.
Walker: It is neither morally right nor Constitutional for the government to harm Americans so that foreigners may be helped, no matter the initial good intentions.
For that reason, the refugee resettlement program should be shut down as an improvement for the American people.
Here is how the California native begins to build her case:
America is in its sixth year of a jobless “recovery,” yet the State Department continues to import tens of thousands of unskilled refugees from the Third World as if the economy were bubbling along with jobs for all who want them. The entire program seems painfully out of touch with the degree of economic suffering in the country and the effect on our poorest citizens of increasing job competition.
Here in California, the unemployment rate has dropped below 8 percent for the first time in six years as of April, indicating the long difficult struggle to climb back from the recession. Child poverty is running around 22 percent this year, another sign of the state’s poor economic performance. But the State Department resettled 5,173 refugees in California in 2012 when the economy was even more dismal.
Also in 2012, it was reported that the government placed hundreds of lead-poisoning-impaired Burmese refugees in Oakland, a chronically depressed city with too much homegrown crime and poverty. The federal program of dumping poor Third World people with learning disabilities has added to an already crushing burden on the city, and seems altogether a cruel use of government power.
A few days ago, likely spearheaded by Grover Norquist and his sidekick Suhail Kahn***, a group of Republican open borders enthusiasts made a public appeal to bring in more refugees and remove barriers (what? those terrorism bars) preventing them from entering the country. Said the ten:
Our policies toward refugees are at the heart of our American values.
One of those signing the letter, here, asking for more refugees, was none other than former Senator Sam Brownback, now Kansas governor, who, even as he sat on a key immigration subcommittee in the US Senate, said of the Somali Bantus whose resettlement he was advocating for some other communities in America—DON’T SEND ‘EM TO KANSAS!
You can read more about this Republican’s hypocrisy here at VDARE in 2003. The New York Times obliquely referred to Brownback’s backpedaling here.
***Don’t miss the damning report on Norquist and Kahn just released by the Center for Security Policy—Islamists’ assault on the right, enabling the Muslim Brotherhood in America!
So, much for those American values—-just not in Brownback’s backyard!
Our original coverage on the case began here in 2011. The family he killed was of Native American origin (which is neither here nor there, they are dead, but might be of interest to our liberal readers.)
Your tax dollars will now support him for life—he is 28, so if we are unlucky, for 50-60 years we will clothe, house and feed him special Halal meals!
One new consideration—we are now deporting Somalis back to Somalia, here.
Since the beginning of the 2013 fiscal yearwe have resettled 3,674 Somalis. If that rate continues we will be bringing nearly 9,000 Somalis to your cities this year, putting 2013 right up there with some of our top resettlement years (since 9/11!) for Somalis!
Update May 5th: Tsarni trying to get his nephew buried in Mass. But, he has been successful in America, why not ship his body back to Russia. His grave in America will just serve as a rallying point for protestors.
In the midst of the media storm created by the Boston Bomber Brothers Tsarnaev, their Uncle Ruslan Tsarni (why did he change his name?) came forward to condemn his nephews’ actions and, if I heard it once, I heard it a zillion times—Ruslan is the kind of immigrant we want! (Personally I thought he sounded like a phoney, like someone trying to save his own skin!)
If you were among those gushing fans, think again. Steve Sailor writing at VDARE directs us to a website that has been researching the question about how this extended family of Chechens got asylum here in the first place. Yes, how?
The uncle of the accused Boston Marathon bombers incorporated, in 1995, a company called the “Congress of Chechen International Organizations.”
Even as the company was sending aid to Islamic terrorists in Chechnya, its listed address was in the home of former top CIA official Graham Fuller.
Ruslan Tsarni was listed as the company’s resident agent. The company’s address was 11114 Whisperwood Ln in Rockville MD., the home of Graham Fuller, the one-time Vice-Chairman of the National Intelligence Council at the CIA under President Reagan.
Over this past weekend, Fuller reluctantly confirmed the report published here last Thursday, “Boston bombers’ uncle married daughter of top CIA official.”
He admitted that Ruslan Tsarni had once been married to his daughter.
But then, with the same breath, he derided what he called “rumors” of links between Tsarni and the Agency as “absurd.”
But documents surfaced over the weekend that cast a long shadow of doubt on Graham Fuller’s assertion, which amounts to a beat cop waving his baton, and saying, “There’s nothing to see here folks. Move along.”
How closely tied is the refugee/asylum industry to our intelligence community, inquiring minds want to know. See my post hereon the International Rescue Committee earlier this week—it raises the same sort of issues.
And, you all thought this business of saving poor refugees and asylum seekers was all about humanitarianism.
Oops forgot to mention—our whole category on the Boston Marathon Bombing is here.
