In 2010, Oregon-residing Mohamed Mohamud (a naturalized citizen born in Somalia) planned to mass murder Americans at a Portland Christmas tree-lighting ceremony where typically hundreds of families show up for the festivities. He rang his cell-phone twice, thinking a huge bomb would go off, but it was a fake set up by the FBI to [...]
The Associated Press has a happy-talk story about African refugees being given plots of land — from “federal grants,” aka tax money — to grow vegetables, as if nobody else was responding to the increasing demand for fresh veggies.
Is farming a job Americans don’t want to do? Must we import illiterate foreigners to grow vegetables?
The busybody in the Vatican thinks the first world is not rescuing enough “migrants” and accepting them into their nations. Pope Francis has already written his statement for World Refugee Day in January and the highly inclusive message was recently released, titled “A Church without frontiers, mother to all”.
For a taste, here is the final [...]
On World Refugee Day (June 20), the ever helpful mainstream press presents the refugees as the issue du jour — important for public awareness according to liberal values, but not important enough for explaining the causes. The New York Times headlined Refugees at Levels Not Seen Since World War II but did not place the [...]
America is open and generous toward the world’s downtrodden and as a result has accepted many diverse war criminals as immigrants and refugees.
Today’s example was a guard at a brutal prison in marxist Ethiopia where he tortured and killed dozens of prisoners. Kefelgn Alemu Worku (pictured) later escaped to the United States, entering as a [...]
From Arizona comes this curious twist on a refugee terrorist story: Abdullatif Ali Aldosary (pictured), the Iraqi who tried to blow up the Casa Grande Social Security office last fall, has also been charged with the murder of a co-worker which occurred a few days before the bombing.
I blogged on the case when it happened, [...]
In Arizona, the Iraqi refugee accused of bombing the Casa Grande Social Security office last Friday, appeared in court for the second time on Wednesday.
Information about Abdullatif Aldosary has been accumulating over the intervening days, such as the bomb-making materials found in his home.
Aldosary already had a record as a hostile character, having been arrested [...]
This crime is particularly disturbing since the 10-year-old victim had called the police on at least two occasions asking to be protected from his violent stepfather, Somali refugee Ali Mohamad Mohamud.
You have to wonder whether police were too politically correct to intervene in a Somali family matter. When diversity is in play, authorities are sometimes [...]
Minnesota is afflicted with more East-African diversity than any place should have. A recent example was the sentencing of an Ethiopian refugee who sexually assaulted an 84-year-old legally blind man who was weak from cancer treatment. Ahmed Sule got nearly 29 years in prison, a tough sentence according to standard guidelines.
Sule’s lawyer said she [...]
On July 27, Rep. Peter King chaired the Homeland Security Committee’s third hearing about Islamic terrorism in the United States, titled Al Shabaab: Recruitment and Radicalization within the Muslim American Community and the Threat to the Homeland.
King’s opening remarks (Watch) noted that the hearing was part of an ongoing investigation.
At this hearing, the third in [...]
This just in: authorities have noticed that Washington’s permissive refugee policy regarding Iraqis has created a national security threat. The rush to rescue meant that do-gooder behavior trumped normal prudence in background checks, and dangerous persons were admitted as a result.
As I noted in Iraqi Refugees Pose a Terror Threat, in 2008 Sixty Minutes created [...]
Why does Washington continue to welcome likely enemies in situations with little oversight? It was entirely predictable that welcoming a large number of poorly vetted Iraqi Muslims would endanger national security.
Even the Los Angeles Times, which normally promotes open borders and diversity no matter what, lambastes the government for sloppiness in this case. One of [...]
