Maryland: Salvadorans Arrested for Repeatedly Raping 11-year-old

Montgomery County, Maryland is a sanctuary county and thank goodness I no longer live there!

mississippi-child-crying
The Mississippi sobbing girl picture is everywhere (even at Fox News!).  She is a lot luckier than the 11-year-old Maryland girl!

Daniel Horowitz, writing at Conservative Review, reminds us of the 11-year-old poster girl the leftwing media has been promoting lately—you know the girl crying because her father was rounded up in a recent meatpacking raid.  Surely you have seen the clip.

Horowitz asks about another 11-year-old—the one repeatedly raped by illegal alien monsters from El Salvador.

The one whose face you will never see.

2 illegal aliens accused of raping 11-year-old girl in sanctuary Maryland county

 

The video of a crying 11-year-old girl is being used by the Left to militate against enforcing our sovereignty and immigration laws. Apparently the rule should be that anyone can come here and remain here illegally if they have a child, because enforcing our laws will result in hardship to the kids. But no such heart-tugging imagery exists for all the girls raped and harmed by criminal aliens thanks to the lack of enforcement or loopholes in our laws. The latest atrocity involves a different 11-year-old girl who will never be seen on camera.

Yesterday, WJLA news reported that Montgomery County, Maryland, police arrested two illegal aliens from El Salvador, Mauricio Barrera-Navidad, 29, and Carlos Palacios-Amaya, 28, for raping an 11-year-old child known to the alleged attackers.

The investigation was triggered by a discussion the child had with a school social worker last month, and the rapes are alleged to have occurred last September.

In September 2018, the victim was introduced to her older brother’s friend, Palacios-Amaya. Over the course of the next few months, the then 27-year-old man raped the middle schooler on multiple occasions, authorities allege.The victim recalled one instance where Palacios-Amaya “used his cell phone to video record the two of them having sex,” police noted in court documents.

The victim told the social worker that Palacios-Amaya would often pressure her not to attend school so that she could stay home while her parents were at work. That gave Palacios-Amaya unsupervised access to the girl.

Palacios-Amaya is charged with four counts of second-degree rape, and Barrera-Navidad is charged with one.

This story demonstrates, once again, that the people harmed the most by the lack of enforcement can be immigrant or illegal immigrant children. While the identity of a child victim is never released, it’s clear from the story that her older brother was friends with these individuals and they likely traveled in the same circles.

ICE spokeswoman Justine Whelan provided CR with the same statement regarding the immigration status of the accused as in the local ABC news report:

On July 25, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged a detainer with the Montgomery County (Maryland) Detention Center on Carlos Ernesto Palacios-Amaya, a Salvadoran national, and a repeat immigration violator, following his arrest for rape. Palacios was previously removed from the U.S. in 2014.

On July 26, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lodged a detainer with the Montgomery County (Maryland) Detention Center on Mauricio Barrera-Navidad, a Salvadoran national, unlawfully present in the United States, following his arrest for rape. Barrera is subject to a final order of removal that was issued by an immigration judge in December 2016.

Sadly, it’s unlikely that a single elected Republican, the DHS secretary, or anyone in the White House will even mention this horrific story, much less ask the salient public policy questions that Congress and the DHS must grapple with.

Utah: Nigerian Man Charged in Killing of College Coed had Child Pornography in his Home

This is an update in the ongoing investigation into the brutal murder of Mackenzie Lueck.

(See all of my previous posts here, and my prediction that this story will go away, except for media in Utah, because the alleged killer should not have been in the US in the first place and he is African.)

From the New York Daily News (the only national news outlet I see that is still following the story),

Suspect charged in murder of University of Utah student Mackenzie Lueck also facing 19 counts for child porn

 

An investigation into the killing of University of Utah student Mackenzie Lueck turned up a collection of child pornography on a computer allegedly belonging to the murder suspect.

The Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office on Tuesday announced that 31-year-old Ayoola Ajayi was charged with 19 counts of sexually exploiting a minor after authorities discovered “numerous images of children engaged in sex acts” during a search of the suspect’s home on June 26.

Ajayi house

The 19 images, described in the probable cause document in graphic detail, show girls believed to be between the ages of 4 and 8 years old performing sex acts or posing suggestively in various stages of undress.

Authorities did not indicate any link between Lueck’s death and the pornographic images.

Ajayi was previously charged in July with aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping, obstruction of justice and abuse or desecration of a human body in connection with Lueck’s slaying.

[….]

When authorities discovered her body, Lueck’s arms had been bound behind her back and the medical examiner said she died from blunt force trauma to the head.

Amid the investigation into her slaying, authorities combed through both Lueck and Ajayi’s social media and dating profiles in a bid to find a connection between the two. According to court documents, they both had accounts on a site called “Seeking Arrangements” — which bills itself as a way for wealthy “sugar daddies” to connect with “sugar babies.”  

The story should be spread widely to warn other young women living in la-la land that there are a lot of predatory monsters out there just waiting to prey on them!

Salt Lake County District Attorney Sam Gill said his office is now working to determine where the pornographic images on Ajyai’s computer were made and who made them. He told The Salt Lake Tribune they will use federal resources in their probe, which is also aimed at identifying the victims.

Missouri: Somali Day Care Owner Sentenced for Ripping Off Taxpayers in Lucrative Fraud Scheme

Thanks to reader Joanne for alerting me to this news from a week ago about the sentencing of a Somali ‘new American’ in a day care fraud scheme that cheated taxpayers out of a half a million dollars.

I’m posting almost the entire Justice Department press release because it is chock full of information about how he operated the scam and how the feds nabbed him.

BUSTED!

KC Day Care Owner Sentenced for $556,000 Fraud Scheme

 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The owner of a Kansas City, Missouri, day care center was sentenced in federal court today for his role in a conspiracy to fraudulently receive more than $556,000 in federal benefits.

Sharif Karie, 41, of Olathe, Kan., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Brian C. Wimes to four years and 10 months in federal prison without parole.

On Jan. 11, 2019, Karie was convicted at trial of participating in a conspiracy to steal government property, theft of government property, three counts of aggravated identity theft, three counts of wire fraud, 15 counts of money laundering, and six counts of mail fraud.

Can you believe it!  The feds are not making us play the secret decoder ring game and have actually said where the crook is from!

Karie, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Somalia, was the owner and CEO of a day care center established under two businesses and two names for the same location, with the same key employees: KARIE Day Care Center, LLC, and Tima Child Care Center, LLC, at 1019 Admiral Blvd., Kansas City, Mo. Tima Child Care Center was established under false pretense with a straw owner, according to court documents, apparently to circumvent the state’s oversight efforts.

Co-defendant Sheri Beamon, 48, of Kansas City, Missouri, was the director of KARIE/Tima Childcare Center. Beamon pleaded guilty on Sept. 10, 2018, to her role in the conspiracy and will be sentenced on Aug. 15, 2019.

The day care centers submitted false childcare claims to the state of Missouri that fraudulently inflated the number of hours and children who actually attended the childcare centers. The conspiracy, which lasted from October 2013 to June 2016, resulted in a loss of $536,833 to the Missouri Department of Health and Social Services.The Child Care and Development Fund provides daycare subsidies for low-income families where the parents are employed or engaged in job training. Providers contract with the Children’s Division of the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and submit claims electronically.

Additionally, Karie committed fraud by misleading the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) when he understated his income and assets. Karie received Section 8 assistance, which is funded by HUD. The fraud scheme resulted in a loss of more than $40,000 to the Housing Authority.

You will be happy to see this next bit of information:

This case was the result of a nationwide sweep that targeted child care center fraud schemes. The national law enforcement operation in Missouri and six other states was the result of separate, but related, federal investigations into childcare center fraud that resulted in a loss of more than $1 million to the government.

Clever feds!  I love this:

Pole cameras, which were installed near the day care center, captured footage of the entrances and exits of the building during two time periods in 2015 and in 2016.

Timesheets and billing records were reviewed and compared to the children seen on the pole cameras being dropped off and picked up from the daycare center during that time. There were significant discrepancies between the timesheets, claims submitted, and the pole camera footage. According to court documents, even the fire evacuation records were falsified indicating a fire drill was performed on a date when pole cameras were capturing footage of the entrance/exit of the day care and the planned evacuation route as provided to the state. The drill never took place.

At no time during its operation, according to court documents, did Karie Day Care Center meet the minimum health and safety standards for operation as established by Missouri statute and agreed to by contract. Tima Child Care Center was conceived as the state was in process of shutting down Karie Day Care Center for failure to comply with standards for health, safety, and record keeping. Had the state known that Karie was actually operating the business, according to court documents, a license would not have been approved.

Parents were being paid to care for their own kids on the taxpayers’ dime:

The state conducted a compliance review of the daycare center’s billing for May 2014 and July 2014. The review found several attendance records missing. The review also identified 14 out of the 15 families with children at the center who had a parent employed there. With only two classrooms, it is improbable that parents were not caring for their own children. One of these parents reported that her job was contingent on having all of her children placed in care at KARIE Day Care Center so her child care would be paid by the state. According to court records, nearly all children enrolled for services were those of employees, in violation of state regulations.This same 2014 audit found several discrepancies on the time sheets submitted to the state.

Subsequent unannounced inspections at KARIE Day Care Center found the facility in violation of state regulations pertaining to child care licensing rules, including health and safety, staff ratios, and the maintaining of attendance records. Each of the inspections resulted in violation findings.

LOL!  Just another example of how immigrant (new American!) entrepreneurs benefit the US economy (NOT!). 

This is a story worth spreading far and wide!

Memory Lane: Overload the American Welfare System and Bring on the Revolution

It has been ten years since I wrote the post below at Refugee Resettlement Watch and it occurs to me that there may be some of you scratching your heads and wondering why anyone would want to open our borders and welcome in hordes of impoverished people and put them on taxpayer-funded welfare.

And, you might be wondering why the reaction to the Trump Administration’s very sensible plan to block welfare use for non-citizens announced this past week, see here, is causing Leftwingers heads to explode.

heads explode
Progressives react to Trump welfare restrictions.

The strategy was once well-known to hardcore Socialists/Communists (aka Progressives) as the Cloward-Piven strategy, but I suspect following generations of young do-gooders and average Americans who have simply been busy working and raising families have no idea that importing poverty is a political strategy.

If you know all about Cloward and Piven, you won’t find anything new here, but for those of you who have never heard those names, please continue reading!

Here is my post from November 2009,

Cloward-Piven: Use the poor to bring on the revolution

 

Screenshot (1078)
Piven lives on, but Cloward passed away in 2001.

If you are a regular reader, you know one of the themes we have been writing about is what I call “community destabilization,” we have a whole category for those posts.

And, you know we write about the Cloward-Piven strategy as part of that discussion.

Cloward and Piven, while professors at Columbia University (Obama’s alma mater), penned a 1966 treatise in Nation magazine in which they outlined a strategy to bring about a revolution in America. I wrote about it most recently, here [Sorry links are dead since the speech police took down RRW, but I am working on getting it restored—ed]

Simply stated the strategy involved flooding the welfare system with so many impoverished people that the system would collapse and that would pave the way for a new form of government—a government that would redistribute the wealth and provide a guaranteed income for everyone.

Below is another shocking segment from that article.  We are often lectured about what is the moral thing to do about refugees, but let me ask all of you, what is moral about this Far Left strategy?

Remember immigrants and refugees are today’s poor.  As unfashionable as the word is, frankly, I call this strategy to place as many people as possible on the welfare system and use them for promotion of a radical political ideology downright evil.*  (Emphasis below mine.)

From The Nation,

To generate an expressly political movement, cadres of aggressive organizers would have to come from the civil rights movement and the churches, from militant low-income organizations like those formed by the Industrial Areas Foundation (that is, by Saul Alinsky), and from other groups on the Left. These activists should be quick to see the difference between programs to redress individual grievances and a large-scale social-action campaign for national policy reform.

Movements that depend on involving masses of poor people have generally failed in America. Why would the proposed strategy to engage the poor succeed?

First, this plan promises immediate economic benefits. This is a point of some importance because, whereas America’s poor have not been moved in any number by radical political ideologies, they have sometimes been moved by their economic interests. Since radical movements in America have rarely been able to provide visible economic incentives, they have usually failed to secure mass participation of any kind. The conservative “business unionism” of organized labor is explained by this fact, for membership enlarged only as unionism paid off in material benefits. Union leaders have understood that their strength derives almost entirely from their capacity to provide economic rewards to members. Although leaders have increasingly acted in political spheres, their influence has been directed chiefly to matters of governmental policy affecting the well-being of organized workers. The same point is made by the experience of rent strikes in Northern cities. Their organizers were often motivated by radical ideologies, but tenants have been attracted by the promise that housing improvements would quickly be made if they withheld their rent.

(Remember these are Cloward and Piven’s words!)

Second, for this strategy to succeed, one need not ask more of most of the poor than that they claim lawful benefits. Thus the plan has the extraordinary capability of yielding mass influence without mass participation, at least as the term “participation” is ordinarily understood. Mass influence in this case stems from the consumption of benefits and does not require that large groups of people be involved in regular organizational roles.  [Of course not, the smart people, the elite radicals, would call all the shots!]

Moreover, this kind of mass influence is cumulative because benefits are continuous. Once eligibility for basic food and rent grants is established, the drain on local resources persists indefinitely. Other movements have failed precisely because they could not produce continuous and cumulative influence.

When you read the Nation article, note that Cloward and Piven were very conscious of the concept of the ‘presumption of good intentions.’  In other words, they knew that this political strategy would go undetected for a very long time because it would be hidden from their average do-gooder minions by the presumption that this was all about aiding the downtrodden.

Ann Coulter 2
Ann Coulter on the strategy: Speak loudly and carry a small victim!

I must say this ‘strategy’ is the only logical explanation for why we are still pouring refugees into the US right now [2009] when there is little or no work for them and they are being “warehoused” in decrepit apartment buildings, like those in Bowling Green, KY. [Again, sorry, links to RRW are now dead.—-ed]

Incidentally, even if refugees have chicken plant jobs they still receive various forms of public assistance because the meatpackers no longer pay a living wage.

I wonder did Cloward and Piven ever anticipate the involvement of big businesses as allies in the revolution?  See this post from August in which I list strange bedfellows on the open borders issue.

* I have to laugh, after I posted this, I see [link not found—ed] that Ann Coulter also suggested Far Left Liberal strategies were “evil” when she said their motto is:  Speak loudly and carry a small victim!

The End of the November 2009 post at RRW.

I think you got my message—the border invasion (the mass movement of extreme poverty into American towns and cities) is a Progressive (Communist) political strategy and the migrants are their pawns.  (And, their future voters!)

I hope you didn’t miss the part about how they need the churches to help them pull it off!

Why Wasn’t Alleged Philadelphia Shooter’s Picture Plastered on CNN this Morning?

Philadelphia shooter
Maurice Hill, 36, had a long history of gun convictions.

 

I said I would write about American criminals from time to time, and I’ve told you that I watch CNN the first thing every morning as a way of seeing where the Leftwingers/Progressives are going on any given day.

Today, at CNN, the morning anchors were talking their viewers into thinking a Trump-induced recession was upon us, but they also reported on the gun violence in the Democrat-run city of Philadelphia.

They did report that the shooter, who wounded six police officers when officers came to serve a warrant on the man who ultimately opened fire, and said the shooter had a veritable arsenal of weapons and ammunition. But, I didn’t hear them mention his name, only that he was taken into custody.

Maurice Hill, we learn here at the Philadelphia Inquirer had a long criminal history.

(See that Townhall was on it overnight with a report about Hill’s criminal history.)

So, how did Hill get his guns including assault weapons?  Are we going to hear anything about whether he had a background check?  Are we going to hear anything about mental illness? Are we going to hear anything about who he hated (police?)? Are we going to be told that a background check would have kept him from owning guns?  Did his family, friends and neighbors ever try to report him to the local police?

Are we going to hear anything about who his political heroes are?

I’ll bet that starting tomorrow, you won’t hear another peep about how the city of brotherly love harbors violent criminals with arsenals in their closets. Why? Because it runs against the PC narrative our mainstream media is peddling.

All the gun laws in the world are not going to keep the Maurice Hills from acquiring “weapons of war.”

And, you know where that leaves you—the law abiding American!

Large Numbers of Prison Inmates are Muslims Costing Taxpayers Millions

I’m glad to see that someone has done a deep dive into the issue of the costs of incarcerating Muslims, many of whom are immigrants we have welcomed to America.

Of course, although some of the Muslim prisoners being counted are American Muslims and converts to Islam, we can still see that incarceration rates for this segment of the population is on a percentage basis extremely high.

Every time I see one of those gushing reports about how new immigrants to America are causing the economy to boom, I know that the pro-open borders bias of the researchers has kept them from reporting the costs of law enforcement, trials, and incarceration of some of those ‘new Americans.’

I wonder what the cost will be of the investigation and ultimate prison term of the alleged Somali refugee terrorists in my previous post?

Here is Daniel Greenfield at Frontpage earlier this month,

IN 5 STATES, 1 IN 5 PRISONERS ARE MUSLIM

At 1%, Muslims are still a small percentage of the population. But there’s one place in America where they are vastly over-represented.

State prisons.

Maryland Prisons
Maryland takes the prize! One in 4 prisoners are Muslims

Take Maryland, which has an estimated 70,000 Muslims, making up over 1% of the population. But of Maryland’s 18,562 prisoners, 5,084 were Muslims.

That’s 27.4% or over 1 in 4 prisoners.

It would also mean that 1 out of 13 Muslims in Maryland may have been in a state prison.

Those are startling numbers, yet they come from Muslim Advocates, an Islamist legal advocacy group. Both MA’s numbers and the number of Muslims in different states may be miscounted, yet these figures raise serious questions about public safety and the toll that immigration is taking on our communities.

While Maryland’s numbers are some of the worst, MA lists similar figures for Washington D.C. where out of 5,219 prisoners, 1,232 were Muslims, so that once again 1 in 4 prisoners were Muslim.

D.C. does have one of the largest Muslim populations in the country, numbering between 2 and 3 percent. Even taking the highest estimate, 6.5% of the Muslim population in D.C. was in jail in 2017.

Muslims make up 1% of the population in Pennsylvania, but 1 in 5 of its prisoners.

[….]

In 5 states, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, Muslims make up 1 out of 4 or 1 out of 5 prisoners.

In another 4 states, Wisconsin, Missouri, Delaware, and Arkansas, they make up 1 in 10 prisoners.

[….]

Overrepresentation may be partially a product of the success of Islamic Dawah or missionary activity in prisons. Islamic prison Dawah has produced many converts and at least some terror plots. And it may serve to explain high Muslim prison numbers in some states, but not necessarily in others.

[….]

The MA report also claims that 12% of federal prisoners are Muslims. (CAIR in the past had claimed that it was only 6%.) The current federal BOP population is 177,619. That would mean over 21,000 prisoners.

And over 105,000 Muslims are prisoners in state and federal prisons.

[….]

Using Pew’s growth estimate, which projects that the Muslim settler population will reach 8.1 million by 2050 (a severe underestimation of actual growth), that would mean a quarter million Muslim prisoners.

This is not just an abstract statistic. It’s a compilation of human misery, lives lost, futures taken, a litany of abuse, loss, assault, and the accompanying taxpayer expenditures on trials, prisons and free lawyers.

The current cost of incarcerating Muslim federal prisoners is taking $670 million a year from taxpayers.

By 2050, the cost could climb to over $1.5 billion.

Update on the Arizona Somali Refugees Arrested for Supporting ISIS

I told you about Ahmed Mahad Mohamed, 21, and Abdi Yemani Hussein, 20,  here and here, but I hadn’t seen this news—-they were hitting the gym to get stronger for the beheadings they were planning.

Katie Pavlich had this short extra bit of news when the story broke (thanks to Cathy for sending it).

Don’t miss my post yesterday about 167 Jewish groups want 95,000 more refugees (Somalis included!) delivered to Anytown, USA starting on October first!

From Townhall:

Somali Refugees Living in Tucson Started Hitting the Gym to Get Stronger…for Beheadings

According to the indictment the two men, Ahmed Mahad Mohamed and Abdi Yemani Hussein, started hitting the gym in order to get stronger so they could easily perform beheadings.

“On or about June 26, 2019, MOHAMED told the UC (undercover FBI agent) that he and ‘abu’ jihad started going to the gym so they could get stronger and ‘behad those kuffar,'” the indictment states. “MOHAMED indicated that he wanted to make hijrah and asked for help from the UC. MOHAMED state that he was ‘a lion bu killing the kuffar and behading.’ In addition, MOHAMED told the UC, ‘if I go to Syria I want to be the behading person wallahi this kuffar I want to kill them so many I am thirsty their blood.’ MOHAMED indicated he wanted to travel to Syria, Egypt and/or Iraq.”

How many more refugees are out there with dreams of beheading the kuffar?  

And, gee, in addition to paying for their initial resettlement to the US (did we, taxpayers, pay for the gym membership too?) we get to pay for their trials and incarcerations!  See my next post!
