African “asylum shoppers” attempt to lie their way into Ireland

I like that—instead of asylum seekers, let’s use the phrase asylum shoppers!

A new UK system to track rejected asylum seekers as they “shop” around with different names and even different nationalities attempting to get into Ireland  has revealed some surprising (to some!) statistics.   But, of course those Somalis coming across our US borders and asking for asylum are all legit, right?

From the Irish Independent (Oh, boy, watch for it! The Irish Immigrant Council will be on the paper’s case again! See what happened in 2008, here.):

TWO-THIRDS of failed asylum seekers investigated so far this year under a new agreement with the UK were found to be involved in identity swapping, the Irish Independent has learnt.

Cross-checks carried out by gardai using British fingerprint records revealed that about 1,300 out of 2,000 failed asylum seekers investigated were known to Britain’s Border Agency under a different name.

Of those looked at, about a third had given a different nationality to the UK authorities.

The scale of the identity swapping scam was uncovered under a data sharing plan, which is a key feature of a common travel area agreement signed by Ireland and Britain last Christmas.

The aim of the data sharing is to unearth previously undisclosed UK immigration histories that could help the Irish authorities in processing the cases of failed asylum seekers, a senior official told the Irish Independent last night.

He said this information was vital in helping to determine whether a deportation order should be issued against an applicant.

Of the 2,000 asylum seekers investigated, cross-checks found 600 had already been identified by UK agencies either as asylum shoppers with previous applications to the UK or as previous British visa seekers.

In the majority of fingerprint matches, those claiming asylum in Ireland had already been granted UK visas.

The official added that more than 80 people who had claimed asylum here as Somalis had previously been granted a UK visa using a Tanzanian identity.

Tip of the iceberg! 

“This is only the tip of the iceberg”, the official predicted last night….


Update:  Identity problem keeps supposed Somali woman from marrying in Ireland, here.  LOL! Looks like some of these people need the services of the reality show along with Barack Obama—Who do you think you are?

American Jihadist in Somalia: gee, I wonder how my Mom is feeling about all this

Oh brother, not long ago there were reports out of Somalia that Alabama-born Abu Mansoor al-Amriki was dead (killed by fellow jihadists), now we learn he has penned a book.  He says he hopes to inspire other young American Muslims that they too can follow their Jihad dreams and come on over to Africa.

Jihad a normal career choice!  From

Amriki, who has reportedly been based in anarchic Somalia since late 2006 and is wanted by the US on terrorism charges, has issued previous videos calling for foreign recruits, including singing rap songs praising holy war.

“I am not simply a disenfranchised foreigner who is jealous of America,” the 28-year old said, writing thousands of miles from the small town of Daphne, Alamaba where he grew up.

“The real fear that Americans feel when they see an American in Somalia talking about jihad, is not how skillful he is at sneaking back across the borders with nuclear weapons,” he added.

“The Americans fear that their cultural barrier has been broken, and now jihad has become a normal career choice of any youthful American Muslim.”

But wait…there will be no going back.  No Mommy, no sister, no chicken wings or gourmet coffee!

What I would like though is to have a three day visit to see my mom, dad and sister…I often wonder what this whole experience has done to them,” he writes, as well as missing his daughter whom he abandoned in Egypt as a baby.

“After going through all the hugs and kisses, me and Dena (his sister) would probably go running around town laughing our heads off and talking about a billion things without ever finishing a conversation,” he wrote.

“I’d like to make a round of the restaurants and get some Chinese food, some hot (chicken) wings, some Nestle ice cream, some gourmet coffee and a slew of other foods and beverages.”

Wait till he finds out that he gave up Chinese food and there is no Allah!  Boo hoo!

More Africans on the way from Malta to the US; new Ambassador says ain’t it great!

“It is remarkable that the US takes responsibility for these people in an act of charity and solidarity.” (Maltese official with a sigh of relief that they aren’t left holding the bag!  The Maltese people are fed up with the boatloads arriving on their shores. )

I know, I know, it is the same old story I’ve been writing about for nearly 5 years!   The Bush Administration managed to pervert the refugee resettlement process by taking some of the illegal aliens who arrive in the tiny Mediterranean Island of Malta to the US as “refugees.”   Now, everyone thinks this is so great and no one remembers the process was perverted in creating the Malta-model for resettlement—illegal aliens arrive in a safe European nation where they are supposed to request asylum (if they can justify it!).  Instead we transform many (mostly single young Muslim men) into refugees for US resettlement.

Here is just the latest installment from the Malta Independent (I see we have a new ambassador):

A total of 27 Somali and Eritrean migrants, including three families, yesterday left Malta for the US under the US Refugee Resettlement Programme (USRRP). This brings the total of refugees relocated in the United States since 2007 to 985.

US Ambassador Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley* and Home Affairs Minister Carmelo Mifsud Bonnici bid them farewell on the start of this new journey in their life.

The ambassador having arrived in Malta only last week, this was the first time she was present for such a departure.

In comments to The Malta Independent, she said the experience was “exciting” and “gratifying”. She had heard before what Malta does for the migrants and the dangerous trips they take to get here.

“The US admires Malta for the hospitality and we are partners in this,” she said. “Malta has for these people been a safe haven and we are proud to be partners.

“The US Refugee Admissions Programme is very close to my heart and I intend to make every effort to ensure it remains active. It represents a continuation of America’s commitment to welcome refugees and to provide a safe haven for those most in need,” Ms Abercrombie-Winstanley continued.

“This programme is a success thanks to the collaboration of the Maltese government and several local and international organisations which offer support to the refugees throughout their time in Malta,” she noted.

The US is the largest beneficiary of the African illegal alien migration to Malta!

On their arrival in the US, the migrants – a family of four, two couples and 19 single men will be assisted by NGOs to proceed to their final destinations in various states.

This departure brings the total number of beneficiaries of international protection who resettled in the US from Malta since 2007, to 985, making the US the country receiving the majority of migrants making it to Malta. As part of the USRRP programme that was launched in 2008, 957 beneficiaries were settled.

This year alone, a total of 174 migrants have left Malta for the US and more are expected to depart in the coming weeks.

*Now I understand—we want something from Malta!  So, once again we are using the “refugee program” for some other foreign policy objective!  You get to have a bunch of new Somali young men in your towns in need of “services” and the US gets what?—read about it!   In my testimony to the State Department on May 1, this was one of my ten reasons for a moratorium—Congress needs to reform this program and disallow its use for other foreign policy goals, here.
