Comment worth noting: Many blind ‘conservatives’ in Minnesota

Editor: Occasionally we post guest comments/opinion pieces from readers.  This, below, is a comment a resident of Minnesota posted at this story last week:

Headline: 25 reasons to end Somali refugee resettlement now
Before you read Bob Carrillo’s comment, you might want to visit Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch yesterday about Republicans and Dems (pandering!) in the Minnesota state legislature by proposing to give nearly $20 million in taxpayer dollars to Somali community development (because of course we all know that poverty produces Islamic terrorists—NOT!).

Headline: 25 reasons to end Somali refugee resettlement now

This is a must-read story and a keeper.  Pass it out to friends and family and the next time you attend a public meeting, where refugee advocates will tell you that refugees aren’t terrorists and criminals, have your proof handy.

Hohmann has compiled an eye-popping list of Somali criminals that surely is the tip of the iceberg because we only learn about new cases when some local media outlet has the guts to report on the nationality of an arrested perp, and if the story breaks out of the local community.

Readers need to know that most Somalis in the US are here through the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program or through the chain migration it has spawned.

For background on Adbiraham, go here.

Below (hat tip Bob) is the latest on the case.  Interestingly, the victims (the Sanchez brothers) are out of the country, but promise to return for the sentencing.  Hmmm? We will see if they do return next month.

Is Minnesota’s welcome mat still out for refugees?

Employing a technique we have become accustomed to seeing, reporter Bob Shaw uses a family as his ‘poster family’ that seems […]

NY Times: In FY 2017, record number of Somalis were deported from US to Somalia

Adding more information to the strange story we reported yesterday about an ICE flight to Africa carrying 92 Somalis destined to go home to Somalia but instead did a U-turn and returned to the US after landing in Senegal. Minnesota immigration lawyer Kim Hunter talked to the NY Times about her Somali clients.  http://www.kimhunterlaw.com/staff/ The NY […]

Plane with deportees lands in Africa and then returns to US without dropping off Somalis

This is a very strange story this morning at the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Thanks to reader Margaret for sending. When the ICE plane touched down in Dakar, seems there was a problem getting a crew that had enough rest in order for the nearly 6,000 mile upcoming leg of the trip to continue from Dakar […]
