Is Minnesota lost? That has to be the question many are asking this morning

I woke up this morning with my head spinning about the results nationwide, and couldn’t at first figure out where to dive in to tell you what I think about the midterm election results. Over time, I’ll have more to say about what it all means, but I do know this—there will be no legislative […]

Minnesota Muslims “waking up” and expect to make gains in voting today

From NPR: Muslims Hope To ‘Wake Up’ At The Ballot Box This Year On a recent Saturday afternoon in an office in St. Paul, Minn., a flurry of calls went out to Native American and Latinos voters reminding them to vote Nov. 6. And there was a new group added to the list: Muslims. Until […]

Dozens of Australia’s rejected asylum seekers offered a ticket to the US, turned it down, see why…..

They heard they would have to work in America! This is another in my ever-expanding archive about that Obama “dumb deal” (honored by President Trump) to take 1,250 of Australia’s detained illegal aliens to the US as refugees. Readers need to know that this whole scheme is outside the normal internationally understood process for dealing […]

1,830 refugees arrived in the US in first month of FY19, welcomed by 43 states

In the first month of Fiscal Year 2019, Trump’s State Department admitted its initial group of refugees, mostly UN-selected, toward its proposed cap of 30,000 for resettlement  this year. They are being quietly distributed to approximately 170 towns and cities. If the DOS kept this same pace, 1,830 a month, we would come in just under […]

Arizona Iraqi refugee arrested in bomb-making plot, media avoids the ‘R’ word

New Hampshire: Another refugee woman running for political office with compelling personal story

You are likely very well aware of the Somali former refugee running for Congress to replace Rep. Keith Ellison (the first Muslim man in Congress).  Ilhan Omar has a compelling story of sorts as allegations continue to surface that Omar married her brother in some complicated immigration fraud scheme. Well the first refugee woman ever […]

Japan considering expanding refugee resettlement to 60

LOL! That doubles their present resettlement numbers. I doubt they impressed the UN High Commissioner for Refugees when he arrived there yesterday. From The Japan Times: Japan will consider accepting more Asian refugees from 2020, with an eye to doubling the current annual ceiling of about 30 to strengthen its response to regional humanitarian needs, government […]

Maine: Dunkin’ Donuts apologizes for banning Somali social justice activist from store after altercation

This is a classic case about how change happens! Businesses, eager to prostrate themselves out of fear once confronted by an angry demanding refugee like Hamdia Ahmed, quickly make news by backing down when activists for Muslim immigrant rights cause a stir.  The message to the public: be silent. Even as it is clear, when you […]

South Korea: No refugee status, but Yemenis can stay for awhile

Oh boy, big mistake!  If they have been denied asylum they need to go. I’m guessing that South Korea hasn’t been paying attention to the Australian mess or even our mess in the US with Temporary Protected Status. See my post from this summer on South Korea’s Muslim migrants.     From Reuters (headline is […]

Germany: Leftwing Jews fuming because Jews who fear Islam have joined the political Rightwing

And, those Jews who fear the Muslim migration to Germany have done the unforgivable and formed a lobbying group with Germany’s AfD party (think of it as the Germany first! party). Invasion of Europe news…..     From Religion News Service: Jewish lobby in far-right German party denounced for anti-Muslim views PARIS (RNS) — A […]
