Rwandan refugee accused of raping 90-year-old on Ohio bike trail

Here is a dreadful story from Dayton, OH (good catch by reader ‘pungentpeppers.’)

From ABC22  (be sure to watch the news clip, but this, below, is basically the text of it).

The crime occurred on July 14th on the Creekside Bike Trail, but Jean Paul Mpanurwa, 26 was not arrested for the crime until a few days later.  DNA tests link him to the crime and bail was set at $500,000.  There was early confusion about his nationality (Congolese or Rwandan) and whether he was on a student visa or was a refugee.

Jean Paul Mpanurwa arrested for allegedly raping 90-year-old woman.

This account concludes he is a refugee from Rwanda.***  Because he committed an earlier crime in Utah, the chances are good that he was resettled in “welcoming” Utah and that refugee contractors there know him (in case any investigative reporter wants to search further).  I checked and the State Department did send both Rwandans and Congolese, although in small numbers, to Utah.

Update: Here is another story that says his relatives are Congolese?


DAYTON — We have learned much more about the 26-year-old immigrant who is accused of raping a 90-year-old woman along a Dayton bike path.

Our team spent hours on the phone with several federal agencies and learned Jean Paul Mpanurwa was here legally. Sources tell us he’s a refugee from Rwanda, but since he committed a sexual offense in another state, we wanted to know why he was allowed to come to Dayton.

“I get incensed, and then I get irate. And I’m like in my neighborhood? In my neighborhood?” said neighbor David Messer as he explains the sense disbelief and fear that lingers over his neighborhood near Radio road, even though Mpanurwa is locked up.

“I won’t go out at nighttime anymore… my husband goes with my at night time if I have to go to the store,” said a neighbor who only wanted to be identified as Mary.

She and other neighbors want to know why Mpanurwa was able to join his family in Dayton in the first place.

“Who would really in truly do that to a 90-year-old woman?” asked Mary.

We searched through pages of court documents, and found Mpanurwa admitted to groping a fellow student at a Job Corp in Utah last Fall. His conviction of sexual battery was only a misdemeanor. A misdemeanor crime, even sexual in nature, is not grounds for deportation.

On Monday, we heard Mpanurwa was here on a student visa; but sources now tell us he would never be granted a student visa for nine years, and he was living here as a refugee. Neighbors we talked to today are outraged that more wasn’t done, and want lawmakers to revisit the books.

“Look at the laws on it, you know if he was supposed to be here as a refugee, you know, why is he still over here, really?” asked Mary.

“This is a serial person, he fits a pattern,” said Messer who knows that will help the Prosecution’s case. And as they build their case, Immigration and Customs enforcement already have a federal hold on him. That means if he’s convicted of this rape, they have already started the deportation process.

The comment by Mary above shows just how little the general public knows about the US Refugee Resettlement Program that is now over three decades old.   Refugees never are expected to go back ‘home’ even when things improve in their country.  They are here permanently!   People like Mary (not that she would be expected to know!) think we give refugee status just so someone can get out of harms way for a little while!

***New readers might want to check out this story about a costly Rwandan war criminal who was recently convicted in New Hampshire and sentenced to ten years in prison (her trial(s) cost taxpayers millions).   Surprise! She lied on her application for refugee status.

And, just to cover all bases, note that we are bringing in another 50,000 Congolese refugees over the next couple of years, here.

One more thing, last year in my MD county citizens fought and defeated plans for a “bike trail” that would have wound through 24 miles of peoples’ yards and farms.  Biking hobbyists said that  the people using bike trails are “good people” and we shouldn’t fear crime on those public paths.    Hmmmm!

Handy data on your state/city and refugee admissions

One of the stories on the Tennessee meeting this week, linked this handy chart (click here) for you to see how many refugees and from what country came to your state in fiscal year 2012.   The Obama Administration/feds and their contractors were shooting for 70,000 refugees last year but resettled 58,238.

Check the numbers here (Refugee Admissions Report as of Jul 31, 2013 ) at WRAPS (Refugee Processing Center) and note that again Obama wants 70,000 and they may come close to that for FY2013.  As of July 31st they had resettled 57,030 with two months to go until the fiscal year ends on September 30th.  (These numbers do not include asylees)

You should open some of the other data tables at WRAPS, they are very informative.

I often forget about it myself, but we have an entire category entitled “Where to find information” that you might find useful.

“Fake” gays and lesbians getting asylum status in Europe

Less than two weeks ago, here, we predicted that the latest cool excuse for asking for asylum/refugee status is to claim discrimination due to one’s sexual orientation.  I wondered then how authorities would know if someone was lying or truly a homosexual (and truly persecuted).  Looks like the fraudsters are already hard at it in Europe!

Lesbian activist in South Africa which has legalized gay marriage and might be a good place for West African gays and lesbians to seek asylum—rather than in Europe!

From Radio Netherlands Worldwide (Hat tip: Joanne):

In Belgium, posing as a homosexual is the latest trick to get refugee status or benefit from the subsidiary protection by the Office of the Commissioner General for Refugees and Stateless Persons (CGRA).

Originally from Ziguinchor, Fatouma* now lives in Liège near La Batte. The Senegalese woman, who moved to Belgium just over two years ago, obtained her residence permit in a rather unorthodox fashion. Fatouma was called in for an interview at the CGRA, the office that assesses refugee applications and ultimately grants refugee or subsidiary protection status to various foreign immigrants.

“I bought a made-up story from a Guinean man in Brussels. He told me to pose as a lesbian who was abused in her home country,” says Fatouma. The subsidiary protection status she enjoys was granted to her in five months.


Lucrative fake stories

Selling fake life stories has become a lucrative business. A group of professional story-makers hang around refugee shelters. The hub of this business is in Petit-Château in Brussels.

A storyline can cost up to 200 Euros. Senegalese and Guinean nationals are the “go-to people”, as they like to say. “They coach each other through emails. I know many Senegalese nationals involved in this business. They support each other. Guineans are now taking over,” explains one asylum seeker.

They are the uncontested kings. They guide newcomers from West Africa: those whose applications were rejected in Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal, and who come to Belgium or France for a second chance at obtaining refugee status.

Islam hates gays!   Here is another somewhat-related story where the message to all LGBT (HIV infected) people is to stay out of Somalia where the hardliners would like to kill you.   For the life of me I can’t figure out how the Hard Left reconciles having the Islamists in their political tent alongside Gay political activists.
