Somali Terrorist Trial to Begin in Canada; Many Questions that Likely Will Never be Asked

This morning I happened to catch a bit of a news story at Fox News, maybe you saw it!

Fox may end up being the only US major media outlet to cover the shocking news about the global travels of a Somali extremist that ended with him being arrested in Canada for an Islamic terrorist attack as a ‘new Canadian.’

The Center for Immigration Studies has been dogging the case and created a very cool map that tracks the alleged terrorists movement from Africa to South America, then to our US border and on into (diversity is our strength!) Canada.

How did he do it (surely he was helped along the way!), and for me the vital question seemingly never asked, so therefore never answered—where did he get the money for his movement across the globe?

From CIS (author Todd Bensman was on Fox this morning):

Many who have professionally worried, as did former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, that violent jihadists might illegally cross the United States’ southern border are often challenged with this: “Name a single U.S. border-crossing immigrant asylum-seeker who ever committed a terrorist attack.”

Introducing Abdulahi Hasan Sharif of Somalia.

In 2011, Sharif had himself smuggled from Somalia through Brazil and Central America. Then he entered the United States over the Mexico-California border and claimed asylum. Sharif went on to Canada, where he allegedly conducted a double vehicle-ramming and stabbing rampage in 2017 in Edmonton, Alberta, that severely injured a police officer and four other people. He was carrying an Islamic State flag in one of the ramming vehicles.

That border-crossing Sharif is now on trial in Canada. Not a single corporate American media outlet has written a story about him, either on his trial, his unique place in history as a terrorist who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border, or what America needs to learn about this case to improve border security.

Read it all here.

I’ve said this many times, but the President should be specifically highlighting cases like this one that demonstrate our dangerous southern border when he speaks to his huge rally audiences.

Below is a screenshot showing Sharif’s travel from Somalia to Canada—half way around the world!  See the interactive map by clicking here.

Sharif entered the US during the Obama Administration in 2011 and was released. He entered Canada in 2012 and was granted refugee status.

Why is the Daily Caller Shilling for the Refugee Industry?

To readers at ‘Frauds and Crooks:’  Some days I just run out of time to write at both Refugee Resettlement Watch and at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’  This is one such day.

Tucker Carlson founded the Daily Caller in 2010

I spent several hours this morning writing this post at RRW and hope you will go there to see it because I can reach more potential readers here now than at RRW.

When WordPressdotcom took RRW down I lost my subscribers which numbered around 5,000 and so far have only recovered a few hundred of them (I know it takes time!).

Here is today’s post at RRW, I hope you will go read it.

It is frustrating to see that a conservative publication like the Daily Caller knows so little about the US Refugee Admissions Program.  The reporter is very young, but gee where are the editors?

Utah: Robbery Victim Pulls Gun Fires after Departing Thieves

Rest easy! Authorities say the man will not be charged with trying to stop fleeing robbers.

It appears the robber is a ‘new American’ but there is no mention (as usual) of his nationality or immigration status.

Buk Mawut Buk

Utah is a refugee-welcoming state so I wouldn’t be surprised if the alleged crook is from a refugee family, maybe from the Sudan.

If anyone finds out, let me know!

Thanks to a reader for spotting the story from Idaho’s KSL East Idaho News:

 

Police: Utah men rob father and daughter at gunpoint, then father pulls his gun on them

SALT LAKE CITY — Two cousins robbed a girl and her father at gunpoint when the four met up to sell a phone in Salt Lake City on Saturday. Then, the father pulled out his own gun and fired at the cousins as they ran away, jail records show.

One of the cousins, 20-year-old Buk Mawut Buk, was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail later that day on suspicion of two counts of aggravated robbery and intentionally giving false information to an officer, according to a police affidavit. Buk’s cousin was a juvenile and his name will not be released, police said.

The girl’s father will not face charges, according to Unified Police Sgt. Melody Gray.

Earlier on Saturday, the girl found an iPhone on a classifieds site and began messaging the seller, who identified himself as “Lil,” jail records state. The girl and the seller agreed that she would pay $290 for the iPhone and planned to meet at 3400 W. 5620 South in Salt Lake later that day.

The girl and her father withdrew the agreed-upon amount in cash from an ATM, then drove to the address the seller had provided about 6:15 p.m., according to a police affidavit. But when they knocked on the door, they didn’t get an answer.

As they returned to their car, two men approached them, brandishing a knife and gun. The two demanded the money, as well as a phone that was sitting on the center console of the father’s car, jail records show. The girl and her father handed over the money and phone, and the pair fled.

As the two ran away, the girl’s father pulled out his own gun and fired three rounds at them because he “was in fear for others’ lives, knowing they had a gun,” according to jail records.

More here.  See how he was caught. You will also see that this isn’t Buk’s first run-in with the law.

This story from May demonstrates more of the Buk family’s tendencies toward violence.

I’m just guessing Sudanese ethnicity for this dangerous man, so I wanted to see if Salt Lake City ‘welcomed’ Sudanese refugees and sure enough the city got 350 from the Sudan over the last ten (mostly Obama) years.

Wisconsin ‘New Americans’ Charged in Large Drug Bust

“As United States Attorney, I want to make it clear to those who choose to distribute these dangerous drugs for profit – you are a priority for law enforcement, and my office will work with our local, state, and federal partners to prosecute you and send you to federal prison.”

( Scott C. Blader, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin)

Are these the immigrant entrepreneurs we hear about all the time from those promoting the new American economy? 

When you see the names of those charged you will see that likely most of those charged are Hmong.

Learn about Meth here: https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/research-reports/methamphetamine/what-methamphetamine

And, based on their ages and the fact that Wausau, Wisconsin has been ground zero for the resettlement of Hmong people for 40 years, many of those charged are the next generation—so much for benefiting America (or for them realizing the American dream)!

From the US Justice Department earlier this month.

Thanks to a reader for alerting me to it:

[….]

District Attorney Wetzsteon announced that four people will face state charges in Marathon County, as follows:

Kai Chang, 28, Wausau, is charged with conspiracy to possess methamphetamine as a habitual criminality repeater;

David Castillo-Lopez, 30, Wausau, is charged with conspiracy to possess methamphetamine as a habitual criminality repeater;

Mai Xiong, 32, Wausau, is charged with delivery of methamphetamine (10 to 50 grams), as a party to the crime, as a habitual criminality repeater; and;

Par Y. Her, 61, Wausau, has been charged in Marathon County Case 19CF1033 with delivery of methamphetamine (3 to 10 grams) and delivery of methamphetamine (10 to 50 grams), both as a habitual criminality repeater.

U.S. Attorney Blader said, “As United States Attorney, I want to make it clear to those who choose to distribute these dangerous drugs for profit – you are a priority for law enforcement, and my office will work with our local, state, and federal partners to prosecute you and send you to federal prison. Those who are pouring these substances into Wisconsin from out of state should be on notice that we will use all resources available to us, including the Central Wisconsin Narcotics Task Force, to identify you and prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law.”

Many of those charged as drug dealers benefited from a welcoming America and likely received taxpayer-funded social services and an education, and now, oh joy, we get to pay for their incarcerations.

18 Arrested on Capitol Hill Protesting Trump Refugee Policy, but where was the Media?

Editor:  I want you to see my post at Refugee Resettlement Watch this morning.  I’m mentioning it here because it fits at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ and because RRW has not yet rebuilt its following since WordPressdotcom silenced me there.

I’m back writing at RRW almost every day!  And, right now there is a lot of refugee news being made.

Who comes up with this hokey stuff?

Is this goofy or what! That is the Rev. McCullough of Church World Service on the far left. He pulls in an annual salary and benefits package of nearly $300,000 from the quasi-government CWS. Looks like Anne Richard, Obama’s refugee chief next to him, and then of course CAIR’s Nihad Awad fourth from the left.
