Canada: Supreme Court hearing refugee/war crimes case

They are busy, busy, busy in Canada these days with refugee issues.  Yesterday it was the announcement that Canada would take 5000 more Iraqis and Iranians to make Turkey happy, and today the Supreme Court will hear an important case.

Here is the story (from

OTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada will hear a case Thursday that grapples with how to determine just who is culpable for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Rachidi Ekanza Ezokola, a former high-level diplomat with the Democratic Republic of Congo, was originally denied refugee status after he fled to Montreal with his family because he was found to be complicit by association with the crimes committed by the war-torn African country.

It will be the first time since 1999 that the Supreme Court is considering the interpretation of provisions of a United Nations refugee convention that denies refugee status to people who are associated with war crimes and crimes against humanity – provisions upon which hundreds of refugee cases in Canada are decided, said Lorne Waldman, the president of the Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers.

Sheesh!  They have a whole Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers, I wonder if we have such an association?

Read it all.  The “humanitarians” are on Ezokola’s side, no surprise there.

I bet there are war criminals sprinkled throughout the US refugee population. 

Those two Iraqis convicted of terrorism charges in Kentucky would, in my view, fit the definition.  Oh, but then again, they only killed Americans so that doesn’t count I suppose.

But, this case from New Hampshire of a refugee woman (Beatrice Munyenyezi) charged with lying about her role in genocide in Rwanda is pretty stunning.  We paid for her resettlement and then she cost us millions in court costs for a couple of very expensive trials.  Looks like her next trial, that had been scheduled for last October, will be happening in March? in Concord, NH.

Food stamp fraud: Nyack, NY this time

See a pattern!

Here are the names of those charged in yet another immigrant food stamp fraud scheme (from Nyack-Piermont Patch):

Nissar Ahmed, 59,

Shafaqat Ali, 46,

Kusum Joshi, 48,

Ansar Haniffa, 72,

Balbir Singh, 62,

Kavender Joshi, 49,

Muneer Khan, 28,

For new readers, this is my side interest—food stamp fraud.   If you don’t know how trafficking works, this Patch article has a simple definition:

According to the charges, for example, a customer would enter the store and ask the merchant for $60 in cash. The defendants would ring up a fictitious sale of $120 in qualifying groceries, and then pay out $60 in cash to the customer. The store’s account would subsequently be credited with $120 from the customer’s EBT SNAP account, providing the store a $60 profit on the illicit transaction.  [and that $60 profit comes from you!—ed]

My theory is that there is a world-wide understanding (heck, there might even be training seminars on how to do it) that the trick is to get into the US on an investor visa, buy a mom & pop store and go into the food stamp scam business and rip off the dumb infidel American taxpayer!

I bet that by now I have a hundred cases just like this one posted here at RRW.  Type ‘food stamp fraud’ into our search function and see what I mean!

Ever wonder what brought so many people from Somalia to Minnesota?

My title is the first line in this Star Tribune article about a new book to be published shortly about the Somali migration to America (and through America).   It should read:  ‘Ever wonder who brought so many people from Somalia to Minnesota, and why!’

Maybe it’s in the book, but no where in this description is any mention of the fact that we, the US government, brought them here in the first place.  We are always left with the impression that these downtrodden and pioneering Africans just “made their way” to America because they heard how great we are and that they want to live just like we do!

As for Minnesota, the author of the new book, Ahmed Ismail Yusuf, claims that the Somalis made their way to Minnesota because Minnesota has such “welcoming” people!  Oh, and meatpacking jobs!

You should stop here and revisit this post which realistically tells us why they went to Minneapolis—they were resettled there by the thousands by federal “church” contractors who chose Minnesota because the social services were so generous and Minnesotans didn’t squawk about the huge influx of Africans (likely fearing they would be labeled racists if they did!).  The US State Department and the contractors are also always on the look-out for meatpacking jobs for refugees, so there is likely some element of truth in that.

Here is the Star Tribune on the new (sure to be politically correct) book:

A new book published by the Minnesota Historical Society offers a detailed explanation, documenting the political, economic and social factors that led tens of thousands of Somali immigrants and refugees to make the state their new home.

Ahmed Ismail Yusuf, a local writer, is the author of “The People of Minnesota: Somalis in Minnesota.” It’s the latest in a book series that chronicles the lives of people who have helped define the state, including Swedes, Jews, Ojibwe, Germans, Hmong and African-Americans.

Yusuf writes that three words best tell the story of Somali people: sahan, or pioneer; martisoor, meaning hospitality, and war, a Somali word that literally means news. Somalis are a chatty bunch, and news travels fast and mostly by word of mouth. Those same three words also explain the migration to Minnesota.

Somali refugees first began flocking to the state in 1993, and today Minnesota has the nation’s largest Somali population.

Though the first arrivals came to the United States in 1990, they initially went elsewhere. San Diego was the original magnet city, but jobs were scarce there.

On May 20, 1992, an ad in the Sioux Falls (S.D.) Argus Leader announced that a turkey plant in Marshall, Minn., was hiring. Four Somalis from Sioux Falls applied and were immediately hired. News of their success reached San Diego, and soon a sahan party left to investigate. Four bachelors from California hopped in a car and traveled to Marshall’s Heartland Poultry plant, where they, too, found work.

Jobs were the initial draw, but those who chose to stay did so because they saw something in Minnesotans that resembled their own ways — hospitality.

Books may be purchased at the Minnesota History Center store or at local bookstores. A book launch with the author will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Jan. 24 at the African Development Center*, 1931 S. 5th St., Minneapolis.

For new readers we have resettled more than 100,000 Somali refugees to cities large and small in the US over the last 25 years.  See one of the most widely read posts here at RRW.  In three years since 9/11 ( Bush years 2004, 2005, 2006) the number of Somalis arriving topped 10,000 per year.  Those refugees then began bringing in the family (chain migration!) until 2008 when shock of shocks! the State Department discovered that as many as 30,000 Somalis had lied about their kinship and weren’t related at all.  The State Department then closed the “family reunification” program for Somalis.  It has recently been re-opened for new and legit family members, but they have no intention of finding and deporting the liars.

And, on that “hospitality” issue, you might want to see reports on the latest Somali terrorism trials, here (Portland, OR) and here (San Diego) .  Or how about those Somali youths we raised in Minnesota who went back to Africa for Jihad training?   First we fly them here and resettle them, feed them, give them welfare, educate them and then we have to pay for their trials and imprisonment too!

Syrian ‘asylum seeker’ regrets choosing Norway over Sweden

Readers, this is another story relating to refugees and asylum posted at The Muslim Issue, a blog I’ve been following lately and you should too!  The story is about a Syrian ‘shopping,’ with the help of traffickers, for a country to go to and appeal for status as a refugee from a war-torn country.

The story of ‘Nazim’ is an excellent example of the steps involved in the asylum racket.

From The Muslim Issue (translated from the original).  Emphasis below is mine:

(From Avpixlat) ASYLUM ABUSE: Nazim is one of the many Syrians who lack proper refugee reasons, but in the outside world sympathy to the victims of the ongoing civil war is seen an opportunity to gain a better life in Europe. Now however Nazim fumes that he chose to seek asylum in Norway instead of the naive Sweden.

Nazim left his wife and children in Syria, just a clear indication that there is an asylum scam. Would you leave the women and children on a battlefield where bullets fly and bombs fall to bring yourself to safety? Nazims family are most likely at a safe distance from the civil war horrors. Nazim went to Turkey. It was not a good enough country to flee to, he said, and chose not to try to bring his family. Instead, he contacted smugglers to get into Europe and managed to buy a fake Polish passport for $ 5,000, a sum that Nazim in spite of his alleged refugee status did not have any problems to procure.

[Readers this is a point to remember—asylum seekers from Africa and the Middle East who arrive on our (US) border have spent a huge sum of money to get there, estimates are $10,000 and up.  These are not the starving and destitute people you envision.—ed]

Now remained only the question which country Nazim would choose for asylum where he had the best chance to obtain a residence permit. He chose Norway, on the recommendation of the people he bought the passport from. It would prove to be foolish. In Norway, they are namely sick of asylum seekers who pick and choose among the EU Schengen countries as on an a la carte menu rather than to seek asylum in the first country they come to, in accordance with the Dublin Regulation. They are also fed up with almost all asylum seekers arriving in Norway who carry false papers with accompanying false stories or no paper at all. Nazim has therefore not obtained the residency he so eagerly desires to be able to bring in his family from Syria.

[Readers, remember this point that legitimate refugees are required by international law to ask for asylum in the first safe country they reach, so anyone getting to our border should be asking for asylum in Canada or Mexico or any of the Central and South American countries they have already traversed.  This is also why the US State Department sanctioned Malta migration to America is such a travesty.  Those Somalis reaching Malta are Malta’s and the EU’s problem, not ours!—ed]

Nazim now complains in Norwegian press and says he should have chosen Sweden. All his Syrian friends who chose Sweden has received a residence permit a long time ago. Although this fact seems a little strange. That Nazim has such a good handle on how things have gone for all the others who fled from Syria suggest that this has hardly been a valid cause, but this is a network and a coordinated plan. But yes, Nazim is right, and he should have chosen Sweden. Here all the Syrians now get their residency permits automatically without any investigations or assessments of individual asylum claims being made.

Admittedly they get “only” a residence of three years in the first instance but if they have children or acquire such in Sweden and these children become rooted in Swedish society, he has very good prospects for permanent residency when the three years are over, even on the situation in Syria, if the situation requires no asylum rights. Moreover, almost all Syrians with a three-year residence permit in Sweden already appealed the decision in court and requested that it be granted a permanent residence permit – give someone a finger and he takes the whole hand, feels like a just saying.
