Here is what I reported nearly ten years ago in a post entitled:
Are you sitting down! UN sending 6000 more Somalis to US this year
The Obama administration agreed to take that number from Nakivale camp in Uganda because the Somalis could not get along with the other refugees in the camp.
An article that has now been removed quoted a source who said this:
Explaining the reason of resettling Somalis to the US, Katura said Somali refugees have failed to integrate with other refugee groups living in Nakivale and with the local communities because of their unique language and culture. [This is insane, they can’t get along with other African people but they are going to jump into the mythical American melting pot and come out as just good old regular Americans!—ed]
Later, in 2017, we learned that some of the Nakivale Somalis went to Minnesota thanks to Catholic Charities, here.
Earlier this year we heard about the allegations of fraud and corruption in the UN system in Africa, here, and this news is a continuation of a supposed effort by the UN to find out exactly how alleged corruption is occurring.
UN Refugee Agency Reopens Corruption Investigation
Refugee Sources Report Retaliation After Speaking Out
The United Nations is investigating allegations of corruption among employees at a Ugandan refugee camp following a 100Reporters investigation, but victims say they face retaliation for testifying and that the UN is not protecting them.
In a story published in partnership with NBC News and Journalists for Transparency, refugees at the Nakivale settlement in southwest Uganda said employees and contractors working for the UN Refugee Agency, the UNHCR, as well as local police and employees of the Ugandan government’s Office of the Prime Minister and police, were demanding bribes for everything from access to essential services, including medical referrals, to resettlement in Europe or the U.S.
The reporting came as part of a broader investigation this spring, in which dozens of refugees in East Africa accused UNHCR staff and contractors of exploiting refugees and whitewashing corruption charges.
Refugees interviewed said they felt they had nowhere to turn when they witnessed corruption, as they had to rely on the UNHCR, whose mandate is to protect them, for food, medicine and safety.
A UNHCR spokesperson denied the allegations of wrongdoing at the time the stories were published. But staff are now carrying out interviews with refugee witnesses at the Nakivale refugee settlement and elsewhere.
Continue reading because there is a question about whether the UN is looking for fraud and corruption, or trying to find out how allegations of fraud reached the mainstream media’s ears!
Maddening isn’t it!
First we took thousands of Somalis from this camp and now we are taking thousands more Congolese just because the UN wants us to take them off their hands.
Endnote:Just had a quick look at the data at the Refugee Processing Centerand see that we processed a whopping 2,697 refugees into the US from Uganda in the last fiscal year. See here. (Don’t look at the colored map it is messed up, look at the chart and scroll down to Uganda.)
I never thought I would see a headline like this one from CNN:
How fake refugees from Kenya got settled in the US and Europe
Previously we reported on an extensive investigation by NBC about the massive fraud happening at United Nations camps in Kenya, but this gives us additional details about how Kenyans pretended to be Somalis and got tickets out of Africa.
But his family members weren’t refugees, and they weren’t born in Somalia — they were born in Kenya, and he says his father faked their refugee status in the 1990s to get into the US.
“I feel bad for them [the real refugees], but at the same time it is all about first come, first served. I feel like if they had come before us, then we would have been the ones to stay and they would be the ones who would have gone,” he says.
He agreed to speak to CNN on the condition of anonymity, afraid of being found out.
Refugee status should be reserved for people fleeing across international boundaries from targeted persecution or war.
But in Kenya, home to one of the largest refugee populations on the planet, tens of thousands of registered refugees aren’t refugees at all.
A CNN investigation has determined that from the late 1990s through 2016 an untold number of these fake refugees were resettled in the US and elsewhere.
All told, there are at least 40,000 Kenyans registered as refugees in the Dadaab camps alone, according to both UNHCR and government numbers, in what officials euphemistically term “double registration.”
The UN continues to deny it has massive corruption on its hands!
“We have a zero-tolerance policy, we have anti-fraud committees, we have anti-fraud focal point in the camps, we have help line for refugees or anyone, you could get into our help line right now and report anything. These systems are very good, and they are working,” said Abdalla.
Continue reading here. Of course there is no mention of the fact that this fraud was significantly curbed when Trump slowed the flow of ‘Somalis’ (fake or otherwise) to America leaving the UN scrambling to place possibly fake refugees in Europe, Canada and Australia.
I’m still shaking my head—the words “fake refugees” in a CNN headline! What is the world coming to!
I wonder did the nine resettlement contractors working for the State Department ever get a whiff of this kind of fraud when they had close personal contact with fake refugees?
For serious students of refugee fraud, you might want to visit my extensive archive on the Somali family reunification fraud first uncovered in 2008. One of many posts on the subject ishere.
“The United States welcomed Allawi into our country from war-torn Iraq in 2012. But instead of taking advantage of the many opportunities this country affords, he decided to make money by peddling a deadly narcotic to Americans in the grips of addiction.”
(US Attorney John Bash)
Just when the Refugee Industry agitators and their sycophant press is crying the blues because the President wants to limit the number of so-called ‘translators’ who helped America in the Iraq war, along comes news that all of these “brave” Iraqis are not all they are cracked up to be!
See my recent post on Special Immigrant Visaholders where I ask why we have to take one more?
(For new readers these mostly Muslim SIVs from Iraq and Afghanistan receive all the benefits that refugees receive—which is basically every form of welfare, job counseling, health care, etc.)
Thanks to a twitter follower for alerting me tothis story. Here from OAN:
Texas Judge Sentences Iraqi Immigrant To 30 Years For Massive Drug Operation
An Iraqi immigrant is sentenced to 30 years in prison for running a massive drug trafficking ring on the darknet. 30-year-old Alaa Mohammed Allawi learned his fate in a Texas court Thursday after pleading guilty to several charges, including conspiracy and money laundering back in June.
The individual was granted a U.S. special visa in 2012 after serving as an Iraqi interpreter to the U.S. Department of Defense. He came to America to seek better opportunities than what was offered in his war-torn country.
“The United States welcomed Allawi into our country from war-torn Iraq in 2012,” stated U.S. attorney John Bash. “But instead of taking advantage of the many opportunities this country affords, he decided to make money by peddling a deadly narcotic to Americans in the grips of addiction.”
Police said Allawi used the so-called “deep web” to sell and distribute millions of dollars worth of counterfeit opioids online. The operation led to at least one death after a North Carolina marine, who was stationed at Camp Lejeune, died of a fentanyl overdose after taking one of his pills.Between 2015 and 2017 alone, Allawi reportedly distributed over 350,000 pills.
“We’re talking about a two to three month trial with massive amounts of evidence and documents,” explained Bash. “That’s taken not only prosecutors, but agents out of the field to combat this problem.”
In addition to his prison sentence, Allawi was ordered pay $14.32 million dollars to plaintiffs. He faces deportation after he serves his sentence.
Editor: This is a cross post from my other blog ‘Frauds and Crooks.’
When the news broke a couple of days ago that Tech High in St. Cloud, MN was in the news again there was no information on who exactly was brawling in the school. I didn’t post the story here at RRW because we didn’t know if Somali refugees were involved. Now we know….
Whew! That is a relief! At least now there won’t be any reason for race hustlers like CAIR to get involved, right!
“Students of the same race.” That is how police characterize the make-up of the gangs of fighting students we reported hereon Thursday. But thanks to a Minnesota law which allows names of those who committed felonies, who are aged 16 and 17, be made public, we now have a clearer idea of who exactly was involved in a brawl that brought 20 police officers to a school in a city that has seen years of tension created by the arrival of Somali refugee families.
No secret decoder ring needed—names tell us all we need to know!
(See my extensive St. Cloud file at Refugee Resettlement Watch, here. I first heard of Tech High Somali problems inthis story from 2008. A few posts featuring St. Cloud are here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.‘)
Go hereto ‘Frauds and Crooks’ to read the full story and see the names of some of the students charged with felonies. Some Tech High staff were injured trying to break up the fighting gangs.
