CNN Pushes Fishy Somali Refugee Sob Story to Beat Up Trump (Again)

Nevermind that it is the United Nations that halted refugee travel due to the Chinese virus crisis.

Refugee contractors are trying to “chart a path forward” as refugee admissions this year are set to be the lowest they have ever been since Senators Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden and the peanut farmer, Jimmy Carter, created the US Refugee Admissions Program that became law in 1980.

But, oh how they love their sob stories featuring poor suffering families seeking to be reunited.

Sob story design and promotion is one of the Leftwing media’s greatest skills!

Sorry, no sympathy from me for a mother who leaves her INFANT daughter in a hellhole refugee camp to come to America with a supposedly sick husband expecting then to have the US government fly her daughter to her at a later date.

Here is CNN:

A family was set to be reunited after nearly four years apart. Then coronavirus struck.

 

(CNN) More than three years ago, Deman Aman Abshir, a Somali national, faced an impossible choice: leave behind her newborn daughter to come to the United States or watch as her husband’s health worsened.

She left behind an infant daughter, now three years old, to hop on that plane with a supposedly sick hubby. She had another choice!

Abshir and her husband, fleeing deteriorating conditions in Somalia, worried that any delay in leaving could hinder their chances to resettle in the US and get medical treatment, she said. So they left.

[….]

In 2011, amid an ongoing civil war in the country, Abshir decided to leave Somalia and fled to a refugee camp in Ethiopia.

“Life was hard and there was a lot of struggle,” she said.

Over the years, the health of Abshir’s husband, Mohamed Hussen Ibrahim, who was being treated for a neurologic condition that prevented him from walking and doing other daily activities, started to worsen.

His “neurologic condition” apparently didn’t prevent some daily activities!

And, he sure must have gotten some magical medical treatment in the US (on your dime!) because he got a job, but there is not one word in this story about his diagnosis, treatment or recovery.

In late 2016, more than a year after their case had been approved, the couple was ready to depart to the United States.

“Three different situations happened at the same time: my husband’s situation got worse; we had our newborn; we had the process approved,” Abshir recalled. “It was 2016 so Trump was getting elected, so we knew if we had to delay, the opportunity would never come so we had to choose sacrifice to be with our child or leave for the US with my husband to get better treatment.”

She had another choice:  Let her husband go on to America (so you could pay for his medical care) and she could stay in Africa with her INFANT daughter!

Now we are expected to believe she is so emotional over the separation that she can’t work!

Abshir’s four-month-old daughter had not been part of the original case, therefore adding her would delay their departure and postpone obtaining medical treatment for her husband. Abshir called the decision to leave Nimco behind “painful,” recounting the difficulty she had in keeping jobs in the US because she was overwhelmed with emotions.

Plummer is described as the family’s lawyer, but she also happens to be the Executive Director of CRIS a Columbus, Ohio based subcontractor of Church World Service, facts not reported by CNN. https://www.crisohio.org/about-us/

Since then, Plummer has tried to get Nimco’s case approved to reunite with the family. The nearly four-year uphill battle appeared to be reaching a conclusion when the coronavirus pandemic shut down arrivals.

[….]

Abshir, whose husband also lost his job because of the pandemic [“also”? weren’t we just old she couldn’t hold a job due to being emotionally distraught?—ed]  has remained hopeful, but extended separations often weigh on families.

[He had a job, wow!  He must have recovered from his serious health issue and inability to walk.—ed]

CNN continues….

“I see these cases and it’s joyful when a child reunites with a parent and it’s all wonderful superficially but you can’t get that time back. The child doesn’t know their parents … just the psychological impact to the family for as long as the delay continues,” Plummer said.  [Taxpayer-funded counseling ahead?—ed]

All of that is to set the tone for the rest of the article that goes on to bash the Trump Administration.

We do learn that no date has been set to resume refugee resettlement. 

But, just so you know, we have admitted nearly 400 refugees since the Virus Crisis ‘moratorium’ began.

Refugee arrivals to the US were suspended as of March 19, with the exception of certain emergency cases, a State Department spokesperson told CNN.

No date has been provided on when admissions will resume. The spokesperson said State “will seek to resume refugee arrivals when it is safe and logistically feasible to do so, subject to any travel restrictions in place at that time.”

We Paid to Welcome Them to America, Now They Join the Mob

I had been wondering if Minneapolis’s large population of African refugees had joined the throngs of rioters and looters. It seems they have.

It is more proof that the citizens of Minnesota’s St. Louis County who just last week protested against refugees for their towns and cities are right—diversity destroys the social fabric of communities.

Feel the rage!  From the refugees?  Or, from American taxpayers who for decades have been paying billions of their hard-earned dollars to bring, dare I say it, a bunch of ingrates who now say we are racists and they fear for their sons?

I suspect you have one answer for them!

From Channel News Asia (yes, an international news site painting white America as the root of all evil):

In Minneapolis, African refugees see American dream in tatters

(Their dream in tatters?  What about our dreams for the country we love?)

MINNEAPOLIS: African refugees living in Minneapolis were already struggling with their “American dream” when George Floyd died in police custody.

Now their dream is in tatters and they have joined their African American “brothers” in the streets to protest racism in their adopted homeland. [Cut the B.S. with the mushy “adopted homeland” lingo. They didn’t come here because they love America!—ed] 

[….]

The state of Minnesota, where Minneapolis is located, has the highest percentage of refugees per inhabitant in the whole country, with two percent of the US population but 13 per cent of its refugees, according to the most recent census.

Among them are a large number of people from the Horn of Africa – Ethiopians and Somalis – whose presence in the marches was noticeable because of the colourful robes worn by the women.

[….]

Deka Jama, a 24-year-old woman who came to the United States from Somalia in 2007, showed up with friends, all of them veiled, to protest the discrimination that met them in their new homeland.

“We thought that everyone would be equal, that we would not be judged by religion, by colour, by our dresses. That’s not how we were welcomed,” she told AFP.

She feels a close affinity to African Americans, many of them descended from slaves and who have been Americans for generations.

There is “something connects us,” she said. “We are all dehumanised, regardless of our cultural differences. We have to be here for them.”

Minnesota’s Somali community has a source of pride, though, in Ilhan Omar, a 37-year-old born in Mogadishu who was elected to Congress in 2018.

[….]

“So many people know a social and economic neglect,” Omar said on Sunday.

According to Minnesota Compass, a website that tracks the state’s demographics, families from Africa are particularly hard hit.

In 2016, Obama was President, he sure didn’t do much for African poverty in America (or was that part of the plan?)!

In 2016, 12 per cent of the population of Minnesota was living under the poverty line, but that number rose to 31 per cent among the Ethiopian community and 55 per cent among Somalis.

Immigrant-owned businesses destroyed too!  And, yet, it is all about racist white America.  Have they no eyes to see or brains to think?

That has meant that for many refugees, an important facet of the American dream — social mobility – has broken down over time.

And the riots that have followed some protests have not helped their plight, since some of the looted businesses were immigrant-owned.

Here is an idea!  If so many live in poverty, then we need to stop importing them. Clearly there isn’t enough work!  Clearly they are ungrateful.

Frankly more angry demanding refugees, like these Minnesota Africans, will be the death knell of America.

By the way…..

Where were all these angry Somalis (and their African-American “brothers”) marching in the streets demanding justice for Justine Damond when one of their people, a Somali police officer, killed an unarmed white woman in ‘Little Mogadishu’ in the summer of 2017?

That police killing didn’t send white mobs into the streets to demand justice by committing violence, and to rob and steal.  Civilized people respect our legal system—the legal system that is the bulwark of a successful and prosperous country.

 

Arizona: Videos Produced in Ten Languages to Teach Refugees COVID Cleanliness Practices

Somali refugees have been in Arizona for more than 5 years, but their English language skills are lacking it seems according to data collected on the distribution of Coronavirus informational videos.

Videos in Somali are the most watched of ten videos produced by refugee advocates to teach them how to avoid spreading the virus.

From Fronteras:

Produced In 10 Languages For Arizona Refugees, COVID-19 Safety Videos Reach 70,000

The official language of the African nation Burundi is named Kirundi. Julie Ngiriye speaks it and other languages, which is why the social worker and care coordinator helped make an informational video about the coronavirus for Burundian refugees living in Arizona and beyond.

“I know the struggles they go through for having going through the same struggles myself,” she said.

In the video, Ngiriye explained how to wash your hands. She also talked about social distancing, not sharing plates or food utensils, and sneezing into your elbow. The goal, she said, is to inform.

I thought a refresher on the top ten languages spoken by refugees would be useful. Data is at the Refugee Processing Center. https://www.wrapsnet.org/admissions-and-arrivals/

“How it is really pandemic, not a simple disease,” she said.

The video is one of 10 produced in different languages. They feature Ngiriye, staff called cultural health navigators, and a doctor at Valleywise Health’s Pediatric Refugee Clinic.

“It is actually the best medium to be able to reach the majority of them in the community,” Ngiriye said, and noted that many refugees don’t read or write.

The doctor said shared apartments, jobs with no sick leave, and limited child care options make refugees especially vulnerable to COVID-19. As the coronavirus started to sweep through Arizona, state officials and Valleywise Health joined forces to make safety videos in languages like Swahili, Karen and Arabic.

In less than a month, the 10 videos have been watched on YouTube about 70,000 times. The video done in Somali has the most views. A local leader said it’s because most of the Somali community has been here for years. Making sure newer arrivals also get the message is the hard part.

More here.

If you are wondering, Maay Maay is another language spoken by some Somali people—the Bantu.

See my post a few days ago about how language barriers helped spread the Chinese virus at Smithfield Foods in South Dakota.

Missouri: Somali Teen Walks After Charges Dropped in Brutal Attack on Neighbor

And, if the violent attack wasn’t sickening enough, a staff attorney at juvenile court determined that his IQ was so low that he wouldn’t be able to help in his defense. The case was dropped.

From KSDK St. Louis (h/t Amy):

‘I’ve been failed by the system’ | Teen walks free after neighbor says he broke her nose, left her in bruises

ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis woman feels like the judicial system failed her, after she said her teenage neighbor attacked her and walked away free.

 

Alicia Clarke said exactly a week ago she went for a quick run outside her south city home. When she came back, she noticed her shoes had been moved to a different spot and her cell phone was gone.

From there, she used Find My iPhone to search for it. The location said it was on her property grid. She used her work phone to call it.

“I open my back door to call it and I hear it in my neighbor’s backyard behind me,” Clarke said.

Clarke said she hopped the fence to get it and jumped back over to her yard. Another neighbor yelled out to her and said, “Hey, I told him, ‘I know you did this and I’m calling the police!'”

Clarke said that’s when the 6-foot teen jumped the fence and tackled her.

After the initial assault, he came back with a weapon (a screw driver), continue reading to see what happened next.

Clarke thought the fight was over. But when she went to juvenile court a few days later, she learned his case was dismissed.

“The most hurtful thing of all of this, is the dropped charges. That was much more hurtful than the physical assault,” Clarke said.

A juvenile court official said a staff attorney dropped the case before even going to the judge. The courts weren’t able to comment specifically on this incident, since it involves a juvenile. Clarke said she was told her accused attacker was found incompetent to aid in his own defense because he has an IQ of 49.

[….]

Alicia has a broken nose, staples in her head and stitches to the puncture wound under her eye.

Clark’s sister who wants the story told far and wide posted this additional information on her facebook page.

Hassan is a 15 year old refugee from Somalia who lives with his family. He is 6’ and approx 175lbs, much larger than my sister. He has broken into Alicia’s car 3 different times and broken into another neighbors house. The police were involved every single time and reported that nothing could be done since he was a minor. Surely this time would be different, though.

Read the whole sick story, here.

There will continue to be many more cases like this one as we admit refugees who are mentally unstable and violent.

(Updated) In Response to Lobbying by Refugee Activists, Arizona Senate says ‘Welcome Refugees’

***Update***

A reliable source is reporting that the news about the passage of this resolution is fake news!

SB1341 is a Dem bill and never got a hearing and won’t–https://apps.azleg.gov/BillStatus/BillOverview/73599
SCR 1024 is dead, dead, dead!  Another from the Dems–https://apps.azleg.gov/BillStatus/BillOverview/73599

However, the information about the lobbying effort and ‘We are All America’ is not.

 

The pro-refugee lobby day effort was organized by ‘We are all America’ a subsidiary of the National Partnership for New Americans.

We are all America’splatform is here (they have not updated their refugee section obviously) and is focusing on the following states with their lobbying campaign:  Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee and Texas.

I’m posting this news to show readers how organized the open borders left is.

Frankly, those of us concerned about too much immigration to America have nothing like this.

Republican Governor Ducey: Yes please! More refugees for Arizona!

Arizona sure looks like it is on the cusp of turning blue.

Recently the Republican governor was one of the first Republican governors out of the chute to oppose the President’s efforts to slow the refugee program and now the Republican Senate backs him because a bunch of refugee lobbyists descended on them (and because the Rs want the steady supply of cheap labor for their business pals.)

See my post on Ducey here…

Arizona: Republican Governor Ducey Says Arizona Wants MORE Impoverished Refugees

 

From Cronkite News:

Pro-refugee resolution passes Arizona Senate after push from local activists

PHOENIX – As a Somali refugee and determined activist, Naruro Hassan is used to other people speaking on behalf of the refugee community.

Naruro Hassan

Yet she was finally able to make her own voice heard Feb. 10, when a group of more than 50 lobbyists for refugee rights joined her at the Arizona Capitol to attend legislative meetings and speak to senators one-on-one.

By day’s end, the Senate unanimously passed a pro-refugee resolution expressing gratitude for refugee contributions within the state. It’s waiting on a vote by the House.

[….]

The We Are All America coalition, which works to empower and support the refugee community across the country, organized Refugee Lobbying Day, an event meant to empower refugees in the community, make their voices heard on the topic of resettlement and encourage state legislatures to pass pro-refugee legislation.

The gang is all here, including CAIR!

We Are All America was joined by other organizations, including the Council on American Islamic Relations, Somali United, the International Rescue Committee of Phoenix, Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest and Arizona Jews for Justice.

Continue here.

I have no clue who is bankrolling ‘We are All America‘, but no surprise that two of the nine major refugee resettlement contractors that receive your tax dollars were in the mix.
