Presidential Candidate Amy Klobuchar Wants to Return Refugee Admissions Numbers to pre-Trump Levels

John Binder at Breitbart reports in this not-so-surprising post.

But, if you missed it, first see my report at Frauds and Crooks about how the Senator had no interest in hearing the FBI testify in 2009 before the Senate on Somali Islamic radicalization in Minneapolis.

Where Was Amy Klobuchar That Day?

Here is Binder:

Amy Klobuchar Vows to Resettle 500 Percent More Refugees, None in Her Neighborhood

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is vowing to increase the number of refugees resettled in the United States by more than 500 percent if elected president, almost none of whom would likely be resettled in her neighborhood.

This year, President Trump lowered the annual refugee resettlement cap to its lowest ever at about 18,000 total admissions. This is merely a numerical limit and not a goal to be reached by the State Department.

Amy with her constituents. The banner behind the group is one of the refugee resettlement agencies in Minnesota.

Klobuchar has vowed to increase refugee resettlement back to Obama levels, admitting at least 110,000 refugees in the U.S. in her first year in office.

As president, Klobuchar would “direct the State Department to restore the refugee admissions cap to at least its pre-Trump administration level,” according to her campaign.

Returning to Obama-level refugee admissions would be a more than 500 percent increase in refugee resettlement to the U.S. compared to Trump’s level of refugee resettlement.

Though thousands of American communities would be inundated with a refugee flow, Klobuchar’s neighborhood of Marcy-Holmes in Minneapolis, Minnesota, would likely have to absorb close to none of those refugees.

While Minneapolis has resettled thousands of refugees since 2009, almost none live in Marcy-Holmes, where Klobuchar owns a home with her husband.

She is not alone, all of the Democrat candidates will do the same if they regain control of the White House.

Perhaps the most hilarious hypocrite is Joe Biden  As one of the original designers of the Refugee Admissions Act of 1980, his home state of Delaware has only taken a couple hundred refugees at most since the law was signed by Jimmy Carter.  He says 125,000 is a good number for 2021 (if he makes it to the White House).

 

Where Was Amy Klobuchar That Day? (a Cross-post from Frauds and Crooks)

That would be the day the FBI and the National Counterterrorism Center went to the Senate Homeland Security Committee to testify about potential Islamic radicalization in her home state of Minnesota!

I don’t know how many readers at RRW also read my other blog ‘Frauds and Crooks’ where I have a category entitled: Politicians as frauds.

If you didn’t see my post yesterday about Amy Klobuchar, please go have a look. Hint! It has to do with Somali refugees who left Minnesota to get their jihad training in Somalia.

Birds of a feather? Senator and Presidential candidate Klobuchar with Senator Tammie Baldwin and fellow Minnesotan, Rep. Ilhan Omar having a good laugh!

 

 

 

Minnesota Priest Apologizes for Homily on Islam after CAIR Hissy Fit

His Bishop made him apologize for remarks that the Catholic hierarchy says are not “reflective of the Catholic Church’s teaching on Islam.” 

From KMSP Fox 9:

Lonsdale priest apologizes for anti-Muslim remarks made during homily

LONSDALE, Minn. (FOX 9) – A Minnesota priest has apologized for comments he made about the Muslim faith during a service in Lonsdale.

Wednesday it was calm and quiet outside of the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Lonsdale, but what happened inside the doors during a recent Sunday homily has some people incredibly upset.

Jaylani Hussein pounced!

Jaylani Hussein, executive director of CAIR-Minnesota, spoke out after audio of that Sunday sermon was shared on a blog and picked up steam online.

The priest’s comments about Muslims were the focal point.

“More specifically, we should not allow large numbers of Muslims asylum or immigration into our country,” said Fr. Nick VanDenBroeke in the recording.

“Islam is the greatest threat in the world to both Christianity and to America.”

[….]

“Of course, there are peaceful Muslims, absolutely,” he added. “But the religion as a religion and as an ideology and worldview, it is contrary to Christ and America.”

Others see those words as a big step back in building interfaith relationships.

“I think there are real consequences to these types of behavior and I hope someone who listened to that does not become more radicalized where they see Muslims as a threat and they become a threat to Muslims,” said Hussein.

Then here Fox 9 published the remarks for which Father VanDenBroeke apologized.  I’m posting this so they don’t disappear.  Heck if there was a priest like this near me, I might rush back to the church!

Both as Americans and Christians we do not need to pretend that everyone who seeks entry into America should be treated the same. I believe it’s essential to consider the religion and world view of immigrants or refugees more specifically we should not allow large numbers of Muslims asylum or immigration into our country.

Islam is the greatest threat in the world both to Christianity and to America – of course there are peaceful Muslims, absolutely, but the religion as a religion and as an ideology and world view it is contrary to Christ and America.

I am not saying we hate Muslims, I am absolutely not saying that, they are people created out of love by God just as each one of us is. But while we certainly don’t hate them as people we must oppose their religion and world view.

And if we want to protect our great country, not only as a Christian nation but also as the land of the free then we must oppose the immigration of Muslims, that’s an example of keeping bad ideas out of the country that we have the right to do as a sovereign nation.

I’m not a hater for saying this I’m not saying something anti-Christian because the religion is anti-Christian.

I’m simply a realist to acknowledge that fact, they are the greatest threat to Christianity and America and we need to recognize that fact and our laws of immigration need to reflect that.

Astounding, simply astounding!  Maybe the President should invite him to the White House or the State of the Union!

Don’t miss the Church Militants report on the issue.

MN Rep Ilhan Omar Demonstrates Ignorance about US History

Since I’m on the subject of Minnesota Somalis this morning, see this story about how a Supreme Court decision this week helped show us again how Socialist Open Borders advocates, like Somali US Rep Omar, are ignorant of US immigration history.

From Bizpac Review:

Ilhan Omar’s ill-conceived tweet about immigration under Trump backfires

 

Rep. Ilhan Omar’s attempt to jab President Donald Trump over an immigration policy backfired as her own dirty laundry was exposed.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-23/ethics-complaint-filed-against-rep-ilhan-omar-accused-immigration-tax-and-student

The Minnesota Democrat was slammed on social media after she tweeted her reaction to a Supreme Court decision in favor of the Trump administration’s new immigrant wealth test.

Omar quoted from Emma Lazarus’s famous poem etched on the Statue of Liberty in her tweet Monday, asking her nearly two million followers to retweet “if your immigrant ancestors wouldn’t be let in if this means tested immigration policy was in place then.”

The Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 vote on Monday on the public charge rule***, handing Trump a victory in enforcing the new immigration policy unveiled last August which allows officials to reject efforts to obtain green cards, visas and entry into the U.S. for anyone who might need to rely on public benefits, such as Medicaid and food stamps.

[….]

Omar’s finger-pointing backfired as Twitter users pointed out that when their “immigrant ancestors” did come to America, there were no welfare programs to subsidize their assimilation.

See her tweet and many responses.

Here is just one of those responses to her ignorant tweet.

 

Know the history! 

If you don’t know the real story about that dumb poem on the Statue of Liberty read my 2015 post on how it came to be there.

 

*** And before you get too excited, know that there are many categories of migrants to America that are exempt from the “public charge” rules.

From ABC News on the decision:

The rule requires immigration officials to assess factors including an applicant’s age, health and assets, while expanding the list of off-limits public services to include Medicaid, food stamps and housing subsidies.

Pregnant women, children, refugees, asylum seekers and certain members of the military are generally exempt.

 

Minnesota: Somali ‘Community’ Rallies Around Mom as Social Services Removes Kids

Diversity is beautiful alert!

Read the story and tell me what jumps out at you!

From the Sahan Journal:

(emphasis is mine)

A northwestern Minnesota county removed a Somali mother’s kids. Somalis want to know why.

Somalis in Minnesota and the world are watching the case of an East Grand Forks mother whose children were removed by child protective services. Somali community members believe she’s being treated unfairly, but the facts are not black and white.

Nimo Khalif, 33, mother of six surrounded by supporters outside of the Polk County Court House.

CROOKSTON, Minn. — More than 100 Somali people packed the hallways of the Polk County Courthouse Monday, praying and then pressing officials to explain why the six children of a Somali mother had been taken away from her.

Nimo Khalif, 33, a widow who came to America from a refugee camp in Kenya in late 2014, had been raising the children ages 10 months to 16 years alone in East Grand Forks. Suddenly, the kids were in the custody of Polk County child protective services.

A distraught Nimo posted a video pleading in Somali for help. She said she wasn’t told why the children, ages 10 months to 16 years old, were removed and didn’t know what to do. Later, she would describe it as a “kidnapping.”

The Somali community across Minnesota responded. The widely shared video helped deliver supporters to the courthouse Monday, including many who drove nearly five hours from the Twin Cities. [Who helped her create her video to disparage America?—ed]

They left without answers. It turns out the case is more complicated than those responding to Nimo’s pleas might have realized. While concerns remain in the Somali community that Nimo’s being treated differently because she’s Somali, the facts are not yet black and white.

Polk County is five hours from the heart of Little Mogadishu (Minneapolis).

It began when one of Nimo’s daughters allegedly told a teacher in an email that she did not feel safe at home and was afraid to live with her mother.

[….]

The case has reverberated across Minnesota and the world. Somali National TV sent a reporter to cover the hearing. The video it posted on Facebook has nearly 150,000 views.

Somali community members who know Nimo said they couldn’t understand how she suddenly lost custody of her children.

Nimo strived to make sure her children were successful in their academic and Islamic education, said Abdirizak Duale, chair of Al-Huda Islamic Center of East Grand Forks.

[….]

Nimo, 33, works as a teacher’s assistant at Central Middle School, the same school where two of her daughters were taken into protective custody. She remains an employee of the district and has not been put on leave.

She said her husband, the children’s father, died 10 months ago in Uganda, leaving her to raise their children in far northwestern Minnesota without immediate family nearby.

There are many more details and photos, here.

So now tell me, what jumped out at you? 

Was it the fact that she, a “widow,” was resettled in Minnesota, or so we were told in 2014, lives alone struggling to raise six children on a low wage job (surely with the help of MN welfare), but now has a 10-month-old.

Where is the baby-daddy? 

Why isn’t he helping the family? Or, is it possible that the refugee mom traveled back to where she ‘escaped’ from, Africa, 19 months ago for a conjugal visit with her ‘husband’ who is now conveniently dead.

The next time someone tells you that refugees don’t cost state and county taxpayers anything, remember this story.

Nimo Khalif  and her brood will cost plenty—kids’ education, courts, social services, food stamps, housing assistance, medical care!  And what does Polk County and America get other than worldwide criticism?

By the way, anyone seen CAIR Minnesota riding to her rescue?
