Catholic Priest: Increase the quota! Send more Africans to America!

This is a story I’ve had in my queue for almost a week now.   A Catholic Priest, speaking about the situation in Tunisia involving violence in a refugee camp (we told you about the murders here), says to speed up the resettlement process—keep violence down by sending migrants to the West!

From Agenzia Fides:

“The Tunisian authorities have asked to speed up procedures to evacuate these people, both for those who can return to their country, and for those that can be accepted by other nations because they have the status of refugee- said Father Zerai -. There must be more willingness on behalf of those countries that had declared their willingness to accept refugees (European countries, USA, Canada, Australia) to increase the quota of refugees who can be accepted. “

Father Zerai reconstructs the latest episodes of violence. “Within the camp tension increased when a group of Sudanese tried to abuse a young Eritrean. His countrymen intervened in defense of the girl, triggering the reaction of the Sudanese. In the night between Saturday 21 and Sunday, May 22 they set fire to the tents of some Eritreans, killing four boys. ” The following day, May 23, a group of West Africans who were guests at the camp, blocked the road linking Tunisia to Libya, thus preventing the passage to the inhabitants of the place who had to go to work and have their businesses. So the villagers near the camp attacked, ransacked what they could and set fire to the tents of refugees.

” There are Eritreans, Ethiopians, Somalis, Sudanese, Nigerians, Ivorians, Senegalese and other West African countries in the camp – said the priest -. It was precisely the people from West Africa to hold the demonstration because they had not been granted the right to seek asylum in a host country, since they do not have the status of refugees, but so far they have not even been given the opportunity to return home. So they felt neglected by the international institutions and wanted to draw attention regarding their situation. “

But, of course they will behave themselves once they get what they want and you “welcome” them to your town!

Meanwhile the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is moaning about their loss of taxpayer funding (they are paid by the head!) as the flow of refugees (mostly for security hold-ups) is slowing to the US.

Turkey making plans to keep out possible Syrian refugee flood

They talk about creating a “safe area” within Syria for fleeing Syrian refugees, but it’s really all about keeping them out of Turkey (yet another Muslim country that doesn’t “welcome” its fellow Muslims).

Here is the most telling line in this whole story from Today’s Zaman (sometimes this article loads slowly, keep trying):

Turkey shares an 880-kilometer border with Syria, most of it heavily mined.  

LOL!  And, the US is criticized for a few fences and a few border guards!

Here is more on how Turkey is making plans to send troops into Syria to carve out a “safe” place for refugees within Syria.

Turkish officials have neither denied nor confirmed a report suggesting that the Turkish military has drawn up an operation that would send several battalions of Turkish troops into Syria to carve out a “safe area” for Syrian refugees.

“Watching the hundreds of refugees pouring from Syria across the northern border of Lebanon, the Turkish government is now so fearful of a repeat of the great mass Iraqi Kurdish refugee tide that overwhelmed their border in the aftermath of the 1991 Gulf War that it has drawn up its own secret plans to prevent the Kurds of Syria moving in their thousands into the Kurdish areas of south-eastern Turkey. Turkish generals have thus prepared an operation that would send several battalions of Turkish troops into Syria itself to carve out a ‘safe area’ for Syrian refugees inside Assad’s caliphate,” veteran journalist Robert Fisk wrote in an article published in the UK daily The Independent on Monday.

In the article titled “Who cares in the Middle East what Obama says?” Fisk also said that Turkey has been prepared to advance well beyond the Syrian border town of Al Qamishli — perhaps half way to Deir el-Zour — to provide a “safe haven” for those fleeing the slaughter in Syria’s cities.


At the moment, there is no sign of a huge exodus of refugees from Syria to Turkey. Yet, there is certainly a lot of mental preparation, that is to say talking and planning, just to get ready for such a situation. We don’t have any intention of being caught unaware by anything,” the same diplomat, speaking under the customary condition of anonymity, told Today’s Zaman.

Ethnic nationalism is alive and well in Turkey.  Last year we reported that they don’t like Somalis either, here.

Stockton, CA: $2.6 million food stamp scammers sent to prison

I’m guessing these prison-bound scammers are Pakistani.  What is a “smoke shop” doing in the food stamp business anyway?  How about if we have a law that food stamps can only be redeemed at large reputable grocery stores?

From The Record:

SACRAMENTO — The owner of a downtown Stockton smoke shop, his brother and daughter, were sentenced to federal prison for running a $2.6 million food stamp fraud scheme from the business, federal officials said today.

Ahmad Khan, 54, and his brother Mumraiz Khan, 49, on Thursday were sentenced to more than five years each for food stamp fraud and money laundering charges, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento said. Naheed Khan, 23, was sentenced to spend three years on probation for helping her father and uncle in the scheme, prosecutors said.

While the Smoke Shop & Snack at 435 E. Miner Ave. was authorized to redeem food stamps, in reality prosecutors said they used it as a front to run the fraudulent scheme for five and a half years.

According to prosecutors, the Smoke Shop would buy food stamps for 50 cents on the dollar. Rather than using the public assistance to buy food, prosecutors believe customers used that money to buy illegal drugs.

I have no idea how this family of Khans got into the US, but I urge everyone to start examining the E-2 Treaty Investor program as a possible source of these shop owners scamming food stamps, here.   Here are the E-1 and E-2 Treaty countries.   Awhile ago I did some serious searching around and learned that we have US immigration lawyers whose business it is to process the E-2 Treaty paperwork and even help the “investors” purchase convenience stores.
