Good for Tucker Carlson on Fox, as he asks the question again at the end of a report on a massive rally against (Islamic) terrorism in Paris today. Watch the clip here (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum). It is only a little over 2 minutes long, but see what Carlson says at 1:56!

Minnesota: More than half of the state’s Somalis live in poverty, yet feds and contractors continue to pour them into the US
At the present resettlement rate, the US State Department will admit nearly another 10,000 Somalis to the US by September 30th, the end of the fiscal year (as of the beginning of March the contractors distributed 3,944 new Somalis to American towns and cities).
This story is from Minnesota where three US resettlement contractors are still bringing them in even if there are no jobs!
Who is to blame? Lutheran Social Service (we told you about them here just last week), Catholic Charities and World Relief (renamed Arrive Ministries). More than half of the state’s Somalis live in poverty and these so-called “Christian charities” just keep bringing them in!
Those three “charities” have seeded Minnesota with 10,000 Somalis in ten years (in addition to the thousands in previous years!). They have created a monster!
Remember in February when US State Department Spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, said we had to find jobs for ISIS militants so that they would give up their Islamic jihad agenda! So, why don’t they follow their own logic? By pouring Somalis into the US (where there are no jobs), the State Department and the contractors are setting up the same potentially explosive situation?
From Minnesota Public Radio about a recent Somali job fair in Minneapolis:
As the economy picks up across Minnesota, the state’s Somali-born population continues to battle higher than average unemployment.
The most recent figures, for 2011-2013, put Somalis’ unemployment at 21 percent, about three times the rate for the general population during the same period of time.
Some Somali community leaders are concerned that the lack of opportunities can fuel despair, especially among young people.
Census numbers show that of Minnesota’s five largest immigrant groups, Somali unemployment is the highest. More than half of the state’s Somalis live in poverty.
“We have the highest unemployment rate than any other groups — including the newcomers,” Mohamud Noor, Confederation of Somali Community in Minnesota executive director, said in February. He was speaking at a news conference held in response to a White House address on countering violent extremism.
Social problems — including unemployment and a lack of opportunity — can fuel sympathy for international extremism, he said: “Almost 30 percent [unemployment]. Nobody’s talking about that.”
Mohamud Noor, who leads the Confederation of Somali Community in Minnesota, watched this week as job-seekers clustered around recruiting tables for the Department of Homeland Security, Family Dollar and Delta Global Services at the Brian Coyle Center.
He said he was pleased to see tables for the Minneapolis Police Department and Hennepin County staffed by Somali employees. But he noted the prevalence of government and nonprofit employers: “Quite honestly, I’m disappointed.” he said. “I don’t see the Fortune 500 here.”
It is all about finding them jobs. They all whine and moan, but no one ever says: We must halt the Somali migration to America!
Judicial Watch sues DOJ for withholding documents on mysterious 2014 explosion and fire in Somali neighborhood in Minneapolis
I love Judicial Watch!
Here is the headline of their press release this week:
Judicial Watch Sues DOJ for Records Regarding Suspicious 2014 New Year’s Day Explosion at Apartment Building in Minneapolis Muslim Neighborhood
We reported on the still-unexplained fire here and here (with links to other posts on the subject).
Judicial Watch press release (hat tip: Deb):
Documents already obtained by Judicial Watch raise serious questions about source of explosion, cursory local investigation, barring of ATF agents from investigating
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Justice (DOJ) to obtain records regarding its response to the January 1, 2014, explosion of an apartment building in the largely Muslim Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The FOIA lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia (Judicial Watch v U. S. Department of Justice (No.1:14-cv-02212)).
The FOIA lawsuit, filed after the DOJ failed to respond to a March 12, 2014, FOIA request to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), seeks:
Any and all records regarding, concerning or related to the investigation of the January 1, 2014 explosion and fire at the Cedar-Riverside apartment complex in Minneapolis, Minnesota, based on searches of the FBI’s Electronic Case File system, Central Records System and Electronic Surveillance records, as well as any cross-referenced files concerning the explosion and fire.
At 8:16 a.m. on New Year’s Day in Minneapolis, a building at 516 Cedar Avenue containing a grocery store and several apartments exploded, killing three people and injuring 13. All of the apartments were occupied by single men. Many were hurt while jumping out of the burning building’s windows in order to escape the carnage.

See Minnesota seeded with 10,000 Somalis in ten years, here.
The ultimate question! Why are we still bringing Somalis to the US at the rate of 800-900 a month?
682 Syrians admitted to US so far, seeded throughout America, 90% are Muslims
Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees and Migration, Anne C. Richard, is traveling and making some news on the Syrian refugee resettlement plan.
But, there is nothing much new here. Nevertheless readers, especially new readers, need to know that this is a very very low number compared to what the Obama State Department wanted for this year and you can bet there is much gnashing of teeth going on in the contractor community which wanted 12,000-15,000 THIS year.
The main reason the Syrians are not yet on the way big time is that the FBI can’t get them screened for security.
Do not forget that the contractors have recently begun lobbying to raise the ceiling for all refugees arriving in the US from 70,000 set by Obama last September to possibly 100,000.
From Channel News Asia:
BEIRUT: The United States has admitted 648***refugees from Syria’s civil war and expects to allow in several thousand more, a U.S. official said on Thursday.
The 648 had been selected from 11,000 cases referred to the United States by the United Nations refugee agency, said Assistant Secretary of State Anne Richard. [By the way, by creating this backlog of referred cases the UN puts pressure on the US to get moving!—ed]
Richard said it took the United States one or two years to process each refugee case, with checks that included security and medical assessments as well as analysis of whether individuals were at risk of persecution or death.
“I think that the numbers will go up, I know we are expecting to bring 1,000-2,000 to the U.S. by the end of September and several thousand next year,” she said.
Look at this next line! They are blaming the slowdown on the Republicans when it is Obama’s own FBI that is the hold-up (thankfully!):
The Republican-led House Committee on Homeland Security has criticised the programme, saying the United States lacks the resources to fully investigate the backgrounds of refugees from Syria, where Islamic State militants and other hardline groups are active.
Richard said it was clearly not the intention of the programme to allow in militants.
“The people that we seek to bring are those who have severe medical conditions, widows and orphans,” she said. “These are very vulnerable cases and these are the ones that we are particularly focused on.” [These are very expensive refugees—ed]
So, to which states have the Syrians been distributed so far?
We checked the State Department data bases beginning in early 2012 to the first of April and here is what we learned:
***The number is actually 682 (as of 4/1/2015).
617 are Muslims and 65 are from other religions. The vast majority are Sunni Muslims. That makes the Muslim refugees 90% of the flow which is what we have been predicting because the UN is picking our refugees! I expect that percentage to hold into the future.
Here is where they went (top five states in red):
New Hampshire (3)
New Jersey (31)
New Mexico (6)
New York (8)
North Carolina (34)
West Virginia (1)

Endnote: I can’t impress upon readers enough that this Syrian Muslim pipeline has to be slowed. And, in fact, there is absolutely no justification for the huge flows of Iraqi and Somali Muslims to the US either!
