I used to have more time to write about South Africa—the LOL! Rainbow Nation—but haven’t recently.
However, in light of what I have been writing about today: the FACT that we are picking up Somalis all over the world and bringing them to Anytown, USA, I want to mention this again.
(You can see my archive on South Africa by clicking here.) The joke is that although South Africa is still being touted as the Rainbow Nation that welcomes all races and religions, it is not happy with its fellow black Africans and most particularly the Somalis. So guess what? We take them! We are bringing them as ‘refugees’ to America from South Africa. (see the processing country map I’ve been displaying for the last couple of days below). Just like Australia’s unwanted illegal aliens, why are South Africa’s illegal aliens our problem?
This bit of information is buried in a storyabout Buffalo, NY and the many languages spoken in the school system there. Remember ‘welcoming’ communities you have a huge expense coming when you set up a resettlement site, but what interested me more than the language issue (discussed frequently on these pages) was this brief mention near the end of the article.
Thanks to all who sent the Buffalo News story:
The father is from Somalia. He fled his country and made the risky journey to South Africa. That’s where he met his eventual wife and where his daughters were born, but where the family did not have permanent residency. [What! We thought everyone was welcome in SA?—ed]
So the United Nations sent them to us! So much for the welcoming Rainbow Nation!
See the map for just the month of October 2016. How many of the 151 who arrived in the US in October are persecuted white South Africans? (Gasp! Politically incorrect question alert!)
I’ve asked this other very sensible question in the past: Once whites are in the minority will the tables be turned and will the UN promote the resettlement of whites into black majority nations (to add some diversity!)? Hmmmmm?
I have much more to say about the subject of Refugee Resettlement as a business opportunity (with humanitarianism as the cover for those with a financial interest) for another day. However, I came across a list of companies working to benefit refugees and got a chuckle out of the write-up on Soros, here.
Soros Fund Managementpledges to invest up to $500 million in companies leveraging their resources and ingenuity to aid refugees worldwide, doubling down on the premise that the private sector can lead global change. These investments will target startups, established companies, and social impact initiatives, including businesses started by refugees themselves. While investments will cross a variety of sectors, Soros sees particular potential for emerging digital technologies to help refugees gain access more efficiently to government, legal, financial, and health services, thereby improving the quality of life of millions around the world.
Translation: Soros wants to be sure the refugees have ready access to “services” (aka welfare) = your money!
I don’t understand why these globalists are never concerned about American/European poor people!
Update: More from Michael Patrick Leahy at Breitbart, here.
Yesterday when I first heard the news that a knife and a car were involved in the Ohio State rampage, I knew it was going to turn out to be an Islam-inspired terror attack. I had other duties yesterday afternoon and figured you didn’t need me to report since there would be so many springing to action and cable news would eventually report on who the perp was.
With the St. Cloud mall stabbingfresh on our minds, it was not an earth shattering revelation when we learned later in the day that the jihadist was a Somali refugee. And, it is actually very funny this morning to hear CNN report that there is still no declaration that the Somali Muslim was inspired by his ‘faith.’
( For new readers, see a post we wrote here(at the time of the St. Cloud Somali terror attack) listing the numbers of Somalis admitted to the US in 3 decades. See this post from 2008 where I first began to chronicle the Somali numbers. Some of that data came from Wrapsnet.org(now unavailable). Earlier numbers came from a slow process of analyzing ORR annual reports to Congress.)
And, if I am not too excited by this latest news from Ohio maybe it’s because I wrote my first post about Somali refugee “youths” (many of whom we raised since small children with our tax dollars) turning to the ‘religion of peace’ to become jihadists 8 years ago! (Check this out, I wrote that first post on November 26th, 2008—almost to the day 8 years ago.)
So tell me (everyone yakking about vetting!), how are we going to screen the Muslim kids who become radicalized in your town?
BTW, we have written a lot about Columbus, OH, a Somali resettlement city, second only to Little Mogadishu (Minneapolis), see our Columbus archive.
Now to yesterday’s attack in Ohio:
Here is Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily on the Somali Islamic terror attack yesterday. If the news is true about his family’s sojourn in Pakistan then it confirms a point I have been trying to make for a long time—we are picking up Somalis and other Muslim refugees around the world and thus ‘vetting’ is almost impossible!
The Somali refugee who stabbed Ohio State University students with a butcher knife Monday praised a well-known al-Qaida terrorist on his Facebook page minutes before his attack, yet authorities say they are not ready to assign a motive.
Police shot and killed the man as he was attacking students outside a science building. Eleven people were transported to area hospitals with various injuries, according to the Columbus, Ohio, fire department.
The dead attacker was reportedly an Ohio State student – an 18-year-old Somali refugee named Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who left Somalia with his family for Pakistan in 2007 and obtained a green card to enter the U.S. in 2014. He reportedly lived near campus, CNBC News reported.
On his Facebook page, Artan posted a rant about attacks on Muslims.
Appearing three minutes before the beginning of the rampage, the post reads: “I can’t take it anymore. America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that.”
The post also praised Anwar Al-Awlaki, a radical American-born al-Qaida cleric, describing him as a “hero.”
Let’s talk about this Pakistan connection (assuming that information is correct)!
We know using data that is availableat Wraps.net that we are processing in to the US ‘refugees’ from Pakistan, but a large number are not Pakistanis. And, I have been for years trying to make the point that when a supposed legitimate asylum seeker (like a Somali who claims to be somehow persecuted) arrives in a country such as Malta, Malaysia, Australia, or Pakistan that those so-called ‘refugees’ are not our problem! Those are safe countries where the migrant should be asking for asylum. (Unless, of course, if he or she is a Christian arriving in Pakistan!)
We have seen the most clear case of how outrageous a process this is with the Australia dealjust in the last few weeks.
Think about this, in the case of Pakistan, a Muslim country, why are they sending us Somalis and why are we accepting them? You know they are being processed in to your towns through theUNHCR office in Pakistan. Can we count on an honest screening process there, apparently not, or we wouldn’t have the Ohio State slasher attack yesterday.
Go to the map (it is only for last month) I posted on Sundaythat is available at Wraps.net. It is a processing country map and see that in the month of October we took in 97 ‘refugees’ through Pakistan.
Then you go to this mapwhich lists the ‘nationalities’ admitted in October and you can see that 60 of the 97 were Pakistanis (I sure hope they were all Christians!). Who are the 37 others (who told the UN they would be persecuted if sent home) that we admitted via the UN through Pakistan in October? Somalis like this Ohio slashers family? You can bet some are Afghans, but who knows? We don’t. The US State Department knows, but the public doesn’t.
Where is Congress?
The point I am making is that while we yak about screening Syrians, all over the world we are taking illegal aliens (with virtually no paperwork) who arrived in some safe (for them) country and transform them in to ‘refugees’ to be placed in your towns and supported on your taxpayers’ dime!
Endnote: I am planning a post soon to counter the lies being told by refugee contractors arriving in new potential resettlement sites where they tell the community that no refugees in America have been involved (or have planned) Islamic terror attacks.
Update! Good news! Just got word that it is up and running! Haven’t tried it yet, but blowing kisses to the State Department web designer! Guess we will never know if it took a nudge or they just hadn’t gotten around to it yet!
An important resource for anyone (reporters, citizens, city and state officials) wanting more information about what refugees are being admitted to the US and where they are going is the Refugee Processing Center, a US State Department data base some refer to by its url wrapsnet.org. By the way, I am mentioning this today because I can tell so many readers were trying to access this website from a link here at RRW yesterday when the latest Somali refugee terror attack was going down in Ohio. (I’ll report on that next this morning).
The site has a new warm and fuzzy face (here is a screenshot) which might, on first glance, make one think it is a website for a very pro-refugee activist group rather than simply a federal data base.
Unfortunately what seems to be missing (hopefully this is just a delay in linking in the most important page in to the new website!) is the “interactive data” that is so vital for anyone wishing to track who is entering the country and from where (almost on a daily basis).
Here (below) is a screenshot this morning of the page that once contained links for various types of data. Perhaps if that data base is somewhere else on the site, some kind government employee will direct us to it! (or maybe there is a reader who knows how to access the data through some other area of the website!)
If the availability of this data has been temporarily suspended we urge the State Department to make it available soon since this is a critical period for anyone wishing to know where refugees are being placed.
Normally one was able to click on ‘reports’ in the right hand corner in the above screen shot and arrive at a page to research data. This is what has been appearing for days where the data selection parameters once were:
***Update*** Also missing is this extremely important page that lists which contractors are working in which cities and states, here.
It will be things like this involving transparency with the Refugee Admissions Programwe hope will be fixed early on by whomever Trump picks as his Secretary of State.
This post is filed in our ‘Where to find information’ category, a category full of reports, documents, and data. It contains 460 previous posts, so it is only for those who have a lot of time to peruse it!
For our newest readers whose heads might be spinning, my recommendation is to just follow along every day for awhile because I link back to so much earlier information and you will gradually catch on.
Next! The latest Somali refugee jihadist….
