As I have said before, I am starting to feel like Refugee Resettlement Watch is the refugee crime blog. Today Debbie Schlussel (Hat tip: Blue Ridge Forum) has a post in which she reports that an Iraqi refugee, Waleed Wadie, age 29, has been arrested for exposing himself on the internet to what he thought was an underaged girl. She was a cop. Waleed could be deported.
But wait, didn’t he just get here? Isn’t he one of the vaunted Iraqi refugees, the ones who have helped America and now fear for their lives? Isn’t that what the NGO’s say? Isn’t he one of those Iraqi refugees who we have been assured over and over again by Homeland Security has been thoroughly screened? Where are his volag handlers? Did they give him the computer along with his food stamps and subsidized apartment?
Granted there are good Iraqi refugees but be assured we are letting some real scumbags into the country and you aren’t going to hear about it anywhere in the mainstream media or the leftwing blogs or any blogs or other media sources because it is not the politically correct thing to do.
Read the rest of what Debbie has to say here. Her take is a little differant than ours, but her quandary is understandable. The refugee story the public is being told by the Non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) through their media mouth pieces doesn’t fit the other news from Iraq. You might ask, since the surge is working, why is there a refugee crisis? Because it is in the NGO’s interest to create the aura of a crisis. By doing so they can continue to attack the Bush Administration on the war as well as drum up more paying clients for their refugee resettlement industry. It’s called a ‘twofer!’
As Judy pointed out this morning when she wrote about the Washington Post and its lazy reporting, the Iraqi refugee issue is NOT what the NGO’s want you to believe. Things are improving in Iraq, refugees are returning, the government wants their productive people back, and all the people we are bringing to a neighborhood near you are not deserving of a life in America—take Waleed here as exhibit no.1.
