Update September 20th: More excellent reporting on this by Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily, click here. This is pretty big news! Thanks to a tip from a friend, I checked the House website for bill statusand see that Rep. Michael McCaul has become the 10th member to sign on to HR 3314 since we posted on the co-sponsors yesterday!
See our post yesterdayfor the full story.
This is a significant addition to a bill introduced this summerby freshman Rep. Brian Babin of Texas and comes at a most critical time as Obama may dramatically increase the refugee flow of mostly Syrian Muslims to the US.
McCaul, who signed on yesterday, joins the following nine other co-sponsors.
Rep Burgess, Michael C. [TX-26] – 9/16/2015
Rep Gosar, Paul A. [AZ-4] – 9/15/2015

Is your member in this list? Where are youReps Bob Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy? (For new readers these two members, as chairman and subcommittee chairman of the House Judiciary Committee are responsible for calling for hearings on the refugee program. So far crickets!)

Read this story at Yahoo Newsabout what ‘fun’ might happen as one of the biggest annual events for the Germany economy runs smack up against thousands of mostly Muslim ‘refugees’ arriving on trains with the revelers.

As we focus on Syrians, let’s not forget the Somalis!
Ho hum! We have been following the ‘careers’ of the Somali “youths,” here referred to as “children,” since 2008 (see early posts by clicking here) when we first learned about Somali refugees thumbing their noses at the good life we gave them in America and choosing a future instead of violent jihad.
And, it is unbelievable to me that those promoting bringing in 65,000-100,000 mostly Muslim Syrians think that somehow this will not continue to happen.
Here is the news on one of the latest cases, from the Minneapolis Star Tribune:
MINNEAPOLIS — A Minnesota man admitted Thursday that he planned to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group, saying he believed joining the violent terrorist organization would help his fellow Muslims.
Zacharia Yusuf Abdurahman, 20, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist group. He admitted that he and eight other men met 10 to 15 times in local mosques, parks and restaurants to talk about routes to Syria and how to finance their trip.
He faces up to 15 years in prison at sentencing, which hasn’t been scheduled.
Abdurahman is the third Minnesota man to plead guilty in connection with planning travel to Syria. Five others face a February trial.
Authorities have described the men from Minnesota’s Somali community as friends who recruited and inspired each other. Prosecutors say the men were advised from overseas by Abdi Nur, another Minnesota man who went to Syria in May 2014.
He also said he watched English-language jihadist videos on YouTube, Twitter and other social media outlets, and wanted to join the Islamic State group even though he knew it carried out beheadings and burned prisoners.
Ayan Abdurahman said after her son’s hearing that she was “very sad” and that he and others like him are just children.
“He’s very young,” she said, speaking in broken English. “… I asking the American government they have to treat these as children. They make mistake.”
How many of you agree with me? Just let the “youths” leave the country, take away their passports, and don’t let them come back. Under the present system, we taxpayers get hosed again! We will pay for this man’s prison term! Lucky us!
Are we ever going to stop bringing in Somali ‘refugees’?
We have been focusing on the question of how many Syrian Muslim refugees will be admitted to the US going forward, but always remember we have admitted Somali ‘refugees’ for three decades and there is no end in sight(this is even though the UN is now sending Somalis back to a more stable Somalia from its camps in Kenya).
Once the pipeline is open it never ends!
Go hereto a post I wrote years ago and see that we have admitted well over 100,000 Somalis to the US and they were frankly as equally unable to be screened for security as are the Syrians. But, maybe more importantly, note that the magic melting pot DID NOT WORK and the next generation is becoming the terrorists that there parents were not!
Just checked theRefugee Processing data base, and here is what I find: As of August 31, we have admitted another 7,642 Somalis to the US! The number, when the year ends in less than two weeks, will likely come very close to 9,000 (which is the number we brought last year).
And here (below) is where they went. They went to many more states than I’ve listed here. These are the states that “welcomed” more than 100 to the state’s welfare rolls. Although not over 100, I also want to note that Alaska got 64 Somalis to add to their mosque-going population.
The number in parenthesis is the number of Somalis resettled in the state in FY2015. Top five Somali states in red (these state will probably continue to lead the pack because the contractors will be bringing in their family members):
Minnesota (911) And, MN gets around 2,000 additional a year who move in from elsewhere in the US
Editor: There are so many stories coming my way from all over the country about where Syrians are being resettled that I will never be able to post them all. I do tweet as many as I can, so please follow me on twitter and see my twitter feed in the right hand column here at RRW.
The International Rescue Committee in Baltimore has welcomed 26 Syrians by providing them with the tools to succeed, including a furnished apartment and even employment.
“When you get a safe place like Baltimore or the U.S. and you have the opportunity to rebuild your whole life,” said Chandrasekar, “how motivated do you think you would be? That’s what we see everyday when we welcome a refugee into the Baltimore area.”
The Baltimore office is primarily funded through federal dollars, but a lot of donations come from the community.
Over the last 15 years, the IRC has resettled 12,000 refugees from all over the world here in central Maryland.

I told you here that the questionable Muslim charity—Islamic Relief USA—was helping Syrian refugees get established in Kentucky.
Please go to the Clarion Project and learn about how this huge charity is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood!
Is Islamic Relief USA helping fund refugee resettlement in your city or town?
