North Dakota: Somali Refugee Charged with Murder of Young Mother

Such a sick, sick story on many fronts.

North Dakota has been roiled with refugee tensions over the years as I reported extensively at my other blog, Refugee Resettlement Watch.

I visited the state in 2016 to get a feeling for the situation there mostly a result of Minnesota Somalis spilling across the border into the state, but some refugees have been directly placed there by a Lutheran resettlement agency.

And, as you read this news, keep in the back of your mind that Biden will this month be making the decision on the refugee ceiling for the new fiscal year that begins on October first.  Among the 125,000 he has so far indicated would be arriving, thousands of Somalis will be among them.

But, that isn’t all.

The refugee industry is pushing for the number to be 200,000.  Those tens of thousands of Afghan evacuees beginning to arrive may end up being in addition to 200,000 from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East—all will be needy people looking for the generosity of the US taxpayer!

Here is the bare bones news story from Valley News Live:

Manslaughter charge amended to Murder in Grand Forks shooting

We have enough criminals of our own. Why must we import more from Africa with the help of Lutheran do-gooders?

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (Valley News Live) – Grand Forks Police have identified the victim of a weekend shooting as 28-year-old Megan Lea Gustafson.

The manslaughter charge originally filed against 26-year-old Ahmen Mohamed Abdullahi has been amended to Murder.Abdullahi is also charged with one count of unlawful possession of a firearm and theft of property.

Grand Forks Police say the shooting happened just after 1:30 Sunday morning at a home in the 1300 block of 8th Avenue North. Officers responded to a report of a suspicious man in the area, they knocked on an apartment door and talked to Megan Gustafson.

Officers walked away and shortly after, they heard an argument coming from inside the apartment.

Megan’s obituary is here: https://www.amundsonfuneralhome.com/obituary/megan-gustafson

Court documents say officers saw the door open; Gustafson was standing in the doorway with her back toward the street and Abdullahi was facing her.

Officers heard a single gunshot, heard Gustafson scream, and then saw her run into the lawn and fall to the ground.

Abdullahi walked out of the apartment holding a handgun, according to court documents. Officers were able to detain Abdullahi without incident.

Police say Gustafson had a gunshot wound in the chin/neck area.

They tried to save her, but she later died at Altru Hospital.

Court documents also say the handgun found at the scene was reported stolen from a vehicle in Grand Forks in September 2020. Abdullahi is prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm due to a felony terrorizing conviction in Grand Forks County in March 2021.

Diversity is not beautiful!

As I have said here on many occasions, more young women might be alive if the mainstream media wasn’t chicken to publish stories like this one!

You will see, this won’t go beyond the local news.

UN Secretary General Guterres to Taliban: Can’t we all just get along?

Oh boy, where do I begin with this former Socialist President of Portugal and former UN High Commissioner for Refugees who is now the United Nation’s top dog.

In 2019 Guterres received a German prize for promoting European Unity. https://www.yahoo.com/news/un-chief-guterres-awarded-german-prize-european-unity-133634051.html

Antonio Guterres was the High Commissioner for Refugees for a decade  before securing his top dog seat at the UN in 2017.

His term as UNHCR encompassed many of my early years of writing Refugee Resettlement Watch so he came to my attention often.

I heard him speak and take questions in Washington in 2015 and saw what I had already guessed.  He was a rumpled, pudgy, bureaucrat completely lacking in charisma while spouting socialist dogma to an audience of mostly gullible young people and others in the refugee industry.

He assured those in attendance that Islamic terrorists do not use the refugee pipeline to get into western countries.

For ambitious readers here is my complete archive on Guterres.

One of his many defenses of Islam as a religion of peace was in 2009 as I wrote here.  He claimed that the imperative to welcome and protect the stranger came from roots in Islamic Sharia Law NOT from Judaism and Christianity.

UN High Commissioner for Refugees lies!

So it should be no surprise that in the wake of Biden’s Afghanistan surrender and the Taliban’s power grab, he naively suggests that we should all be able to get along.

From Breitbart:

Why Can’t We All Get Along? U.N. Chief Guterres Wants Taliban ‘Dialogue’ with ‘Feeling’

 

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres pleaded for the world to unite as one Thursday and engage the Taliban in dialogue that included a “feeling” of solidarity with the Afghan people now ruled by the hardline Islamic terrorist group.

The call for talks and more talks came 24-hours after the globalist said the Taliban needs U.N. humanitarian aid as an “entry point” for future negotiations.  [Play nice and we will give you money—ed]

In an interview with Agence France-Presse (AFP), the veteran Portuguese socialist maintained compassion and caring were the keys to ensuring female rights were respected as they chart a future in the new Islamic Caliphate of Afghanistan.

If they are considered, then “peace and stability, with the rights of the people respected” can guarantee a future for the war-torn country which suffered under the Taliban’s brutal first stretch of rule from 1996 to 2001, Guterres affirmed.

“We must maintain a dialogue with the Taliban, where we affirm our principles directly — a dialogue with a feeling of solidarity with the Afghan people,” he said.

“Our duty is to extend our solidarity to a people who suffer greatly, where millions and millions risk dying of hunger,” added the secretary-general.

Calling for an end to inequality is nothing new to Guterres on the public stage, where has has previously demanded a more equal distribution of public power to benefit women.

[….]

“Until now, in the discussions that we have had, there is at least a receptivity to talk,” he added in the AFP interview.

Sooooo…..

That was Thursday, the 9th—the same day as this news broke:

From Bizz Net Post:

U.N. Staff in Afghanistan ‘Fear for Their Lives’ After Taliban Takeover

United Nations (U.N.) staff members in Afghanistan are facing increased incidents of “harassment and intimidation” by members of the Taliban since the terror group seized power of the country last month, U.N. special envoy to Afghanistan Deborah Lyons said Thursday, adding that some U.N. personnel “fear for their lives.”

“We are … increasingly worried by the growing number of incidents of harassment and intimidation against our national staff,” Lyons told the U.N. Security Council during a press briefing in New York City on September 9.

So much for dialogues and feelings….

Arizona: Islamic Honor Killing Thwarted for Now

Editor:  If you have been wondering where I have been, I took a break but have now dragged myself back to blogging at my other blog Refugee Resettlement Watch because I could hardly sit on the sidelines as Biden and his handlers accelerate the destruction of America.

From time to time, you should check in with the RAIR Foundation website as I did this morning to learn more about what Islamic supremacism is doing to the world and to the United States especially as the great migration/replacement is fully underway.

This story from Arizona jumped out at me as I know Arizona has been a Muslim refugee resettlement target state for years and will be front and center as the Afghans are being moved into that state and eventually most other states.

These Iraqi refugees don’t feel they must assimilate and accept our cultural norms!

From the RAIR Foundation ( I see they linked my earliest video in the sidebar):

Arizona: Islamic Family Tries to Murder Pregnant Daughter for Dating a Non-Muslim – ‘I’m not scared of your American Laws’

The victim’s family wanted to kill her when she challenged male Islamic authority.

Think about it! These ‘charmers’ likely got here initially through the Refugee Admissions Program. You paid for their resettlement here just as you will now be doing for tens of thousands of Afghans.

Arizona Police arrested six members of a devout Islamic family that tried to kidnap and murder their pregnant 20-year-old relative because they disapprove of her non-Muslim boyfriend. The Iraqi immigrant family, including the victim’s parents, had been harassing and hunting the girl, her boyfriend, and his family for several months.

The victim’s parents and siblings were all arrested. Ali, Zahraa, Yaser, Bashir, Souad, and Fares Alfartousi face kidnapping, domestic violence, aggravated robbery, and threat charges.

The victim, who is 20 weeks pregnant, reported to authorities that she believed her family would kill her because they felt she was bringing “dishonor” to them. The victim told officers she was afraid of dying in an “honor killing,” referencing Noor Almaleki, who was 20 when her Iraqi Muslim father ran over and killed her in an Arizona parking lot. The father was convicted of murder after prosecutors said he killed his daughter because he believed she had become too westernized and refused an arranged marriage.

[….]

Honor violence ranges from emotional abuse to physical and sexual violence to murder. Male family members usually carry out the violence against female family members perceived to have disgraced the family. Polls show an overwhelming amount of Muslims supports honor killings. Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide.

There is much more, keep reading!   And, then add RAIR to your daily reading list!

It is very important that you make sure news like this is widely distributed because we must resist the great replacement and it is going to take large numbers of patriots pushing back and pushing back hard if we expect to save our great country.

BTW, did you see the news just yesterday that 39% of the French people believe that Islam will be the dominant religion in that country in a few short years.  The great replacement in France is a few years ahead of us.

Guest post: The Invasion of America Continues!  WARNING TO WEST VIRGINIA

Editor:  As I suppose you know, I have been taking a break from blogging here at Frauds and Crooks.  I was doing the same at RRW until Biden blew up Afghanistan, so you might want to visit RRW to see what I have to say about adding tens of thousands of unvetted (you know they can’t vet them properly!) additional Muslim migrants to America.

Here is my most recent post there:

Laura Ingraham Talks with Stephen Miller: Afghan ‘Refugees’ Should be Resettled in Middle East

This is a report from an indefatigable watcher in West Virginia.  If only we had fifty or more Brendas willing to do their own investigations and reports.


 

THE INVASION OF AMERICA CONTINUES:  WARNING TO WEST VIRGINIA

 

In early July this year, I started receiving questions from several different people inquiring if I knew anything about 45 illegals being flown into the Yeager Airport in Charleston, West Virginia, from Arizona.   Knowing that our nation has been invaded (yes, invaded) for many years by illegals and so many government programs that allow foreign nationals to come to America and never leave, I was very interested in knowing the how, what, and when.  The “why” I knew.

Illegals from reportedly over 160 countries are coming at the open invitation of the assumed President of the United States, starting with the stolen election of November 3, 2020.    Recently, he has now invited the pregnant women of Central and Latin America to come have their babies in the United States.  That invitation extends to those women who are postpartum up to one year. The purpose of this is to grant them “Birthright Citizenship” which has been an enormous fraud perpetrated on the American people and designed to flood our nation with third world impoverished peoples from around the globe.

Besides the questions I had been receiving regarding the 45 illegals being flown into Charleston, I was also being told that there was an immigration office in Charleston.  For those familiar with Charleston, it is in Kanawha City.  One woman even told me that some people had knocked on her door one day looking for the immigration office.

By now I was determined to find out what I could about these matters.  I discovered that, yes, there is an immigration office in Charleston.  Having confirmed that, I decided to go there to observe the location and get any information I could.

When I arrived at the location on July 12, 2021, this picture displays what I saw.

Would you know from this building’s facade that it houses an immigration office processing migrants into the US every day? Do you have one where you live?

 

I thought this hardly looks like an immigration office.  To my thinking, it looked like a jobs center.  At first, I hesitated to go to the door, but did so within a few minutes.  I am glad I did because as soon as I looked in the door I knew where I was.  A large sign inside said USCIS which stands for United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.  So much of the fraud being perpetrated on the American people is done in ways which deceive or obfuscate the truth.  Hence, an immigration center “poses” as an Application Support Center.  They are doing their nefarious deeds of undermining our Constitution and changing America “right under our noses”.  Hiding in plain sight, if you will.

Upon entering, I approached the reception counter.  I looked across the room where I saw a dark African-looking woman with long flowing skirts and a hijab, accompanied by a man appearing to be African, as well.  She was obviously muslim and very much out of place for the area.

The receptionist, who spoke with a distinct foreign accent, asked if she could help me.  I asked her if this was a jobs center to help people find employment.  She and another employee, standing by the reception counter, replied, “No, this is an immigration office.  We do biometrics here, and are processing 50 applications a day”.   I then replied that I had a friend who was looking for a job, and I thought I might be able to refer her to this office.  They said other people had made the same mistake.  Once again, they replied that this was an immigration office and asked how they could help me.

Now I was fully aware what I had encountered.  I was still trying to process the 50 applications a day comment.  I then asked if this was an immigration office, why didn’t the sign outside say so?   I further said that the sign is deceptive, to which they seemed to agree.

I asked if they had any information or brochures.  At that time, I saw pockets of brochures across the room, and went to get the ones in English.   Here are the titles of the brochures I picked up:

  1. I am a refugee or asylee — How do I show my employer that I am authorized to work in the United States?
  1. I am a nonimmigrant — How do I extend my nonimmigrant stay in the United States?
  1. USCIS Military Help Line — This flyer even tells them they can obtain information about posthumous citizenship for a deceased armed services member.

BTW–Did you know that non-citizens can join our military and use this as a “fast track” to citizenship?

  1. I am a Refugee or Asylee — How do I become a U.S. permanent resident?

Here is one of the websites listed:   www.welcometoUSA.gov

Here are a couple of paragraphs from this brochure:

Welcome to USA.gov, is a government website maintained by the USCIS. This website will help the new immigrants who look forward to settling in America, to find the required information. This website will also help the immigrants to obtain various government benefits.

Though all the immigrants are not eligible to receive benefits, this website boosts the new immigrants to apply for benefits such as Medicaid, Social Security, food stamps, Medicare, Supplemental Security Income and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. However, immigrants can obtain all the required information by checking out the website “Welcome to USA.gov ” and the guidebook offered by the USCIS and this will help them to settle in the country.

  1. Schedule your FREE appointment with USCIS using INFOPASS

From the outset our government tells those coming here how to access the various social services and benefits.

The goodies that are offered to those immigrating here were NOT available to your parents, grandparents, or relatives in bygone days.  This system has been set up to change the demographics of America, and boy, is it working!

While picking up the aforementioned brochures, the receptionist and another employee said that the immigration officer would see me.

Not being sure if I wanted to do this at the current time however, I looked around and saw a man standing in an office on the other side of the room.  He was motioning for me to come to his office.  Somewhat reluctantly I did so.  He asked how he could help me.  I repeated the same thing I told the receptionist, upon entering the building, that this appeared to be a jobs center.  He confirmed the same information that I had been previously given, that this is an immigration office.  They do biometrics, and they are processing 50 applications a day.

Below I have summarized the highlights of our conversation:

  1. They process 50 applications daily.

 

  1. He confirmed that all coming get a social security number and a 2-year temporary work permit.

 

  1. He confirmed that they get signed up for benefits.

 

4.. He and another employee said the office had been there since 2014.

 

  1. He said they are coming from “everywhere”.

 

  1. He said that they are processing for Columbus, OH, also.

 

  1. When asked where they are going, he said “everywhere”.

 

  1. He told me that the ICE officers are demoralized.  They can’t do their jobs.  After 30+ years between INS and ICE, he is retiring at the end of July.  He said he had it.  He’ s done.

 

9.. Biden administration has told them no one gets deported or detained.

 

  1. If an ICE officer stops a car of illegals, they have to release them.

 

  1. I told him that our nation is being invaded.  He agreed.

 

  1. I told him that I had heard that 45 people had been flown into Charleston airport.

He said he didn’t doubt it.

 

  1. He told me that they are being flown in, all over the country, under the cover of darkness, by the Biden administration.

 

  1. They couldn’t process applications for 4-5 months during COVID.

 

  1. Previously processed about 15 applications/day.

 

  1. I told him that the sign on the building was deceptive, since it did not indicate that this is an immigration office.  I further commented that if people knew this immigration office was here, they would be picketing outside.  He appeared to understand my meaning.

 

As I and others continue to investigate this and bring information to our fellow West Virginians, it is in your hands to demand accountability and transparency for what has too long been ignored by those in power.  The situation is dire for our beloved nation and our state.

Alma, Michigan Citizens Organize to Oppose Home for UACs in Their Community

Editor:  I am posting this story here and at RRW today because it supports my recent harangue that you must get to work locally!  There is no one coming to your rescue as the Open Borders agitators expand their reach into towns large and small across the country.

They are working day and night to change America by changing the people!

The only hope you have now is to fight against the Progressive Left where you live!  Local elected officials can still be moved through public pressure.  There really is no hope at the state or federal level right now. 

Alma has a population of about 10,000! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alma%2C_Michigan

Here is a brief report of what is happening in Alma, Michigan where a federal resettlement subcontractor is planning to open a “home” for Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) who are not refugees, but have recently invaded the southern border.

See data: mostly teenaged males! And, don’t you dare use the word “alien” says the Biden Administration.

These local citizens speaking up against the plan are doing what you should be doing where you live because I will bet the ‘religious’ Leftwingers are a step ahead of you and have either begun moving ‘new Americans’ to your community or have you in their sites.

From the Epoch Times:

Resettlement of Unaccompanied Minors Divides Michigan Town

ALMA, Mich.—A proposal to open a 36-bed residential resettlement facility for illegal alien teenagers in a small central Michigan city has ignited a firestorm of opposition from its citizens.

An estimated 400 people attended the City of Alma Planning Commission’s July 12 public hearing to voice their opinions on the issue. The planning commission is expected to make a recommendation to the city commission on Aug. 4 on whether to approve a request for the conditional rezoning of a recently closed nursing home facility owned by Michigan Masonic Home—also known as Masonic Pathways—a fraternal philanthropic nonprofit organization.

Bethany Christian Services, a nonprofit corporation based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, that would operate the facility, has signed a letter of intent to lease the 6.1-acre property for an annual rent of $385,440, for the purpose of running what it calls “a small group shelter for the short-term care of low-risk youth from 12 to 17 years of age.” Bethany’s goal is to connect the youths with relatives or place them in foster homes.

The Alma shelter, and other such arrangements across Michigan and beyond, are part of the Biden administration’s effort to disseminate the thousands of migrants surging across the United States’ southern border and throughout the interior of the country, and place them in what it calls “influx sites.”

During the month of March, more than 19,000 unaccompanied minors were taken into custody at the southern border by Border Patrol, the largest monthly number in U.S. history.

Bethany Christian Services (subcontractor of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service*** located in Baltimore, MD) says it doesn’t cost Michigan anything because the feds are footing the bill.  Well, obviously the federal money is our money!

Moving them in secrecy!

Media organizations operating in Texas have reported for weeks that unaccompanied children taken into custody at the U.S.–Mexico border are being flown on U.S. military or other government-supplied airplanes to undisclosed destinations. The locations aren’t being divulged out of “concern for the safety of the children,” one federal official said.

At the public hearing in Alma, a spokesperson for Bethany Christian Services explained how the process is paid for, saying: “Everything is fully funded by the U.S. government.

“This program doesn’t cost the state of Michigan anything.

Bethany plays the Christian card….

“Bethany’s mission is to demonstrate the love and compassion of Jesus by protecting children. It is a moral issue.”

Audience member Dr. Jeff Smith, who strongly opposes the proposed resettlement center in Alma, appeared to take offense at the claim that the issue is a moral one.

“Don’t lecture me about what’s morally right,” he said. “I went to these countries on medical mission trips. I’m not going to be told I am morally bad by people who stand to make millions.”

There is more here.

Here is more information that shows that the citizens of Alma are doing their homework!

Just so you know, you may see less of me because I plan to spend more time taking my own advice!

What do we do now? Fight Back Locally!

 

***I wrote about the role of Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, one of two major refugee contractors (US Conference of Catholic Bishops is the second major government contractor) who are paid to ‘take care of’ the mostly teenaged border jumpers here in April.
