Handy resource: Code of Federal Regulations for Refugee program

Thank Teddy and Jimmy!

We’ve written about this before, but it’s been a few years ago.

Any lawyers out there, or anyone interested in going deeper about how the Refugee resettlement program works—maybe some Wyomingites who would like to see that the state does have responsibility for refugee social services—go here (scroll back to page one for table of contents).

Also, see our fact sheet on the program here.

NY: Killing people with knives runs in family of Afghan refugee brothers

Diversity is beautiful alert!

One blogger suggests there was an honor killing motivation involved in at least one of the stabbings.

Before you hear the rest of the story, remember New York state is one of our top five refugee resettlement states in the US and also in the top five states with large Muslim populations.

I wonder how much these murdering brothers cost the state of New York?  Shouldn’t the US State Department share some of the cost burden of their trials and incarceration?

Murder scene at Thali of India Restaurant, Henrietta, NY

An Afghan man admitted Friday that he stabbed his brother to death as his brother dined alone at a popular Indian restaurant in Henrietta.

Ahmad Jawed Mohammad-Askar, 29, pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter Friday before state Supreme Court Justice Francis Affronti. Under the plea agreement, his sentence will be 25 years.

Mohammad-Askar and his brother, 29-year-old Mohamed Ghulam, both worked at the Thali of India Restaurant at 3259 S. Winton Rd. in Henrietta. Speaking through an interpreter Friday, Mohammad-Askar said he stabbed his brother Sept. 17 as his brother ate about a half-hour before the restaurant was scheduled to open for lunch.

I wouldn’t hold my breath about this deportation suggestion.  His lawyers will claim he will be killed if sent back to his hell-hole country.

Mohammad-Askar, who is living here legally, could face deportation after his release from prison.

Then see this!  Honor murders run in family?

Blogger ‘a12iggymom’s Blog’ reported on this murder and an earlier one in the same family via the ‘Rochester Democrat’ last September.  It is not clear to me whether the younger brother actually killed his cousin or just stabbed her in the neck 12 times!  ***update*** the girl survived the stabbing.

Mohammad-Askar and Ghulam are brothers of Faheem Abdul-Jaleel, who was 16 when he stabbed his 13-year-old cousin, Samina Qasim, 12 times in the neck at the family’s Henrietta home on Myrtlewood Drive on June 20, 2011. Authorities said he hid her behind a garbage can with her mouth covered with duct tape and fled the home.

The three brothers were refugees from Afghanistan whose parents were killed when they were young and who came to the United States and settled with their aunt in Henrietta, said John Bradley, the assistant public defender who represented Abdul-Jaleel.

So, let’s see, we have three brothers offered a good life in America (at great expense to American taxpayers), one is dead, and two will be in prison for years at great expense to American taxpayers.  Good deal for America?

And, you can bet, as we pull out of Afghanistan, more charming “refugees” like these will be on the way to your home town!  Surely, Wyoming will get a few!

I wish we had made a category for ‘refugee murder cases’ (I never dreamed there would be so many!),  but since we didn’t, you will find this one and many others in our ‘crimes’ category (1,434 previous posts).

Saudi press calls Burmese Buddhists “bigots,” while they themselves deport Africans by the thousands

“Buddhist bigots” shouts the Saudi press. The Burmese monks don’t want the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in their country! No one in Europe or the US is as brave as these monks! http://www.voanews.com/content/oic-delegation-greeted-by-burmese-protests/1789535.html

This is your laugh of the day (other news coming soon is pretty grim!).

You have to hand it to them, the Saudis have a lot of hutzpah!

In an editorial in the Saudi Gazette, they blast Burma for its treatment of the Rohingya Muslims while they themselves are deporting Africans by the thousands so as to keep Saudi Arabia pure for their people—Arabs.

And, it is even worse, here is one post we published in 2012 where we reported that Saudi Arabia was imprisoning 700 Rohingya people who made it into Saudi Arabia!

Saudi Gazette this week:

… the census is going to demonstrate the strength of the Muslim minority within the country.

Buddhist bigots have already caused near genocidal horrors among the Rohingya. The guilt of the Burmese government has been compounded by its refusal to accept that the Rohingyas, a community which has lived in the country for many generations, are entitled to Burmese citizenship. Not only should all Burmese politicians, including Aung San Suu Kyi, give assurances that they will accept the findings of the census, but that also that they will not use them to promote further persecution of minorities, not least the Rohingya.

For the many new readers we have lately, we haven’t reported on the Rohingya much, but we have a whole category on them here.  Our interest is that the contractors (the Catholic Bishops!) and the US State Department have begun to bring some Rohingya to America.  We don’t know how many because they have them interspersed with the Christian Burmese we have been resettling by the tens of thousands.
