Diversity is strength alert!
Remember this from April of 2012: an Iraqi man whose wife wanted a divorce apparently created a fictional hate crime to cover up the bloody murder of his wife.
This all happened at about the same time as the Trayvon Martin story was making headlines.
This is what we said on April 1, 2012:
CAIR and the Muslim grievance lobby are trying oh-so-hard to elevate this tragic murder of a young Iraqi mother in California to be on par with the Trayvon Martin circus in Florida. I’ve been reading about the case elsewhere and there is something fishy about it.
The Reuters story at the time even dragged in the scumbags at the Southern Poverty Law Center!
Now, on Tuesday, at the Times of San Diego:
Opening statements are scheduled for Tuesday in the murder trial of an Iraqi immigrant accused of fatally beating his wife in their El Cajon home after she asked for a divorce.
Kassim Alhimidi, 49, is charged with killing Shaima Alawadi, 32, also an Iraqi immigrant.
The defendant was arrested on Nov. 8, 2012, by El Cajon police in what was first thought to be a hate crime. His wife was found mortally injured with at least six head wounds in their Skyview Street residence eight months earlier.
First-responders found a note in the home that read, “This is my country, go back to yours, terrorist.”
How many Iraqis in America? Who knows? Remember there were earlier waves of Iraqis being resettled here prior to the latest huge wave.
From 2007 until April 30, 2013, we resettled 84,000 Iraqi nationals to the US. So, by now we have surely surpassed the 100,000 mark with more on the way. From the USCIS:
Since the inception of the program in 2007, 203,321 Iraqi nationals have been referred to the USRAP for resettlement to the United States. USCIS has interviewed 142,670 Iraqi refugee applicants; approved 119,202 for resettlement and, 84,902 Iraqi refugees have arrived in the United States.
