A 28-year-old “man” has been arrested in a violent kidnapping case, luckily the woman fought back and escaped.
Ann Coulter once said that the way news stories are written about crime cases involving migrants and refugees one needs a “secret decoder ring” to figure out what nationality the alleged attacker is and what might be his or her immigration status.
Reader Linda sent me the story from Spokane and this morning I had a few minutes to search news stories about the arrest of Atif Ado.
The Spokeman-Reviewwants you to know that Hussein Hassan was just a nut. Which of course begs the question—do we screen incoming refugees for mental illness? The answer appears to be NO!
I probably wouldn’t bother posting this story meant to get you to ‘move along, nothing to see’ except for the fact that once again we see that Tyson Foods is a draw for refugee resettlement agencies to place their refugees as cheap laborers in meatpacking plants.
(See my previous post on the incident not reported by national media too busy with Charlottesville.)
We also learn here that it was the giant International Rescue Committee***that placed Hussein Hassan with wife and EIGHT kids (taxpayers are responsible for!) in the proximity of Tyson Foods.
When Officer Jason Kiel found him on Olympia Street about 6:30 p.m., Hussein Hassan reportedly charged him, hitting him several times in the head. Officer Joshua Kuhn arrived next and both officers drew their guns and fired.
In the small community of Somali immigrants in the Tri-Cities, the father of eight was a well known, though a volatile, fixture, said Abdrahman Hassan, who owns a Kennewick grocery store.
“I think a lot of people in the Tri-Cities, they know this guy,” he told the Herald.
Abdrahman Hassan said he didn’t know how long Hassan had been in the U.S. but knew he brought his family to the Tri-Cities about five years ago after the International Rescue Committee Seattle helped move him to Tukwila in 2010.
Hussein Hassan spent a year in Pasco, before moving into a Sixth Avenue apartment in Kennewick.
He worked at Tyson Foods and then ConAgra before losing his job.He fell twice in a freezer tunnel at the Richland plant and hurt his back, according to documents he filed in a Benton County court.
His small claims court suit against his supervisor, claiming discrimination because he was Muslim, was ultimately dismissed. It’s unclear if he again found work.
Last October, his troubles worsened.
Someone called police because his wife reportedly was damaging a neighbor’s car.
*** For new readers, the International Rescue Committee is one of 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, but they also receive myriad grants to service their “New Americans.”
If you are a good-hearted soul and think refugee resettlement is all about humanitarianism, think again!Big businesses/global corporations like Tyson Foods depend on the free flow of cheap (some call it slave) labor.
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.
In case you missed the update from World Net Daily about the “man” who sliced open a police officers head in Kennewick, Washington over the weekend (when everyone was busy focused on Charlottesville), here we learn that Hussain Hassan was from the UN’s Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya. So much for screening—either security or mental health!
Wrapsnet has a very cool feature and that is the map showing “processing” countries. This Fiscal Year, through July 31, we processed 5,228 refugees through Kenyato American towns and cities. Most of those would have been Somalis from Dadaab. The total number of Somalis admitted to the US this FY was 5,899 through July 31.
Recently a Somali (sounded educated) wrote to me to tell me that there is a huge amount of fraud going on at Dadaab, but of course I have no way of verifying his information.
By the way, only Turkey sends us more refugees than Kenya.
….First, the authorities and the media should call the local refugee resettlement contractor and see if he is one of theirs. In this case the contractor World Relief Tri-Citiesis the primary contractor for Richland/Kennewick/Pasco. See one story here from 2013.
***Update***Yup! Somali refugee, but the resettlement agency didn’t return phone calls. See here.
They will know if Hussain Hassan is one of the refugees they were paid to resettle in Kennewick or nearby.
Here is the storyat World Net Daily by Leo Hohmann. The police killed Hassan, but amazing no national news on this story from Sunday?
A 46-year-old man identified as Hussein Hassan attacked a police officer in Kennewick, Washington, over the weekend with a large sword, striking at the officer’s head before he was shot and killed.
A spokesman for the police said two officers responded to a 9-1-1 call at 6:38 p.m. Sunday about a man walking down Olympia Street near 10th Avenue armed with a sword.
The two officers arrived on the scene at the same time in separate cars at about 6:40 p.m. One officer got out of his car to confront Hassan and police say the man started swinging the sword, striking the officer at least once in the head with the blade.
Both officers opened fire on the suspect and put him down.
The officer was treated and released from an area hospital after receiving 17 staples to close the head wound.
Almost 24 hours later, on Monday evening, police identified the dead man as Hassan, but gave only scant details – his age and current city of residence.
Kennewick, a small city of about 73,000 population, has been a hotbed of refugee resettlement over the years. The U.S. State Department, in cooperation with the United Nations, has distributed more than 475 refugees into Kennewick since 9/11 from Muslim-majority nations, according to the State Department’s online database. That includes 206 from Iraq, 99 from Somalia, 69 from Sudan, 31 from Afghanistan and nine just in the past 10 months from Syria.
Unfortunately I have no time to learn more this morning. I’m dashing out to a meeting in DC, but caught a blip on the news that oops!, not Hispanic. Breitbart posted a story during the night. Here it is.
Police have identified the alleged shooter in the Burlington mall attack as Arcan Cetin, 20, of Oak Harbor, Washington. Multiple reports indicate that Cetin was an immigrant from Turkey — not a citizen, but a legal permanent resident of the United States.
So, through which LEGAL immigration program did he enter the US? More later!
Afterthought: could he be an Uzbek, a Chechen or Bosnian (we do take them as refugees and process many through Turkey!) Just speculating! Readers, let me know what you find out today!
Update: See our comments for more on Cetin. And note that there is a Syrian refugee camp at Adana, Turkeywhere Cetin is supposedly from. So what is the story on this guy, why is it taking so long to fill us in.
Disgusting news (that doesn’t fit the Left’s narrative!) from World Net Daily‘s Leo Hohmann:
A 49-year-old Iraqi refugee who came to the U.S. in 2003 has fled the country 48 hours before he was to stand trial in Kennewick, Washington, for allegedly raping a grade-school girl.
Khalid Fathey reportedly boarded a flight for Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Authorities issued a nationwide arrest warrant this week after he failed to show at his Benton County Superior Court trial, a local newspaper reported.
The U.S. Marshals Service then discovered that Fathey left Seattle on July 23 on a plane bound for Dubai, Anita Petra, deputy county prosecutor, told the Tri-Cities Herald.
She did not know if it was a one-way or round trip ticket. Either way, the cost would have been substantial but authorities haven’t said if they believe someone helped him get away.
Fathey was set free on a personal recognizance bond after he was charged with the sex crimes in May 2015. Having been in the country since 2003 he would have at least had a green card, which affords permanent resident status, but likely had full U.S. citizenship. Refugees qualify for full citizenship after five years.
Go herefor the whole sordid tale. And, learn more about the massive number of Iraqis we have been admitting to the US.
Don’t hold your breath that this will ever make the national news.
Wow! Check out this story from Seattle—first, because it gives us a few clues about Unaccompanied Alien Minors, not all from Central America and Mexico, who know how to game the system, and secondly because here we see that the Office of Refugee Resettlement is trying to ferret out frauds among the ‘children’ only to be thwarted by a judge.
Gosh, does this mean the Somali, who could be an adult, will be sent back to hang out in high school?
Sure looks like he was returned to foster care (and presumably high school) according to another article at The Seattle Times.
Message to all young men from around the world who want to break into America, get rid of your passports and any other identification before you arrive at the border and then lie, lie, lie!
A judge affirmed a ruling this week that federal immigration officials unlawfully used a dental exam to determine that a teenaged Somali asylum seeker was an adult, and wrongly detained him in the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma.
The teenager, identified in court documents by his initials B.I.C., had entered the United States in August 2015 and applied for asylum as a minor. He was issued a special immigrant juvenile visa and sent to live with a foster mother in Portland. However, in December the Office of Refugee Resettlement said that based on a dental bone scan, they no longer believed that he was a minor.
The teenager had traveled through South and Central America in order to reach the United States, and had destroyed his identification documents so he would not get sent back to Somalia, according to the court filings, so he had no documentation for his age. [So, he committed fraud by destroying his ID papers!—ed]
With the dental bone scan as the only piece of evidence that he was an adult, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested the teenager from his high school near Portland and took him to the Northwest Detention Center in December.
He was released after two months, after the Northwest Immigrants Rights Project filed a suit seeking the teenager’s release. Chief Magistrate Judge James Donahue ruled that using a bone density scan as the sole piece of evidence of someone’s age violates federal law and that the teenager should be freed.
Donahue’s recommendation was adopted this week by U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman, who also threw out ORR’s determination that he was an adult when he was first taken into custody.
According to The Seattle Timesstory he will be released from foster care when he turns 18 (whenever that is, or was), but what next? Does he just disappear into the American Somali community? Or, will the Northwest Immigrants Rights Project take responsibility for him? (surely not!) Or, better still, maybe the good judge will take him in!
