New York State Luring Refugees to Populate Dying Cities

I think some of you in refugee overloaded states might like this news!

The Big Lie: In 2005 the UN said Utica was being saved by refugees. Still trying to save the place nearly 15 years later?

And, native New Yorkers might see this as a great time to pack up and head south for lower taxes and more pleasant weather (many have already!).
The State of New York is actively luring refugees from other states and officials there claim cities are dying and they need low wage workers (and more ethnic groceries and craft shops!) to stop the slow bleed from their decrepit cities.
And, who is going to pay for all of the ‘services’ New York state is offering refugees to move there (called secondary migration in the refugee industry).
No one has ever given me a good argument for why certain struggling cities can’t just be left to die!
Check out one of my many posts at RRW on New York’s dying cities, like Utica.

Iowa: Somali Halal Store Owner Says Allegations of Food Stamp Fraud a "Misunderstanding"

I guess Jama Osman will have to convince a court of that, but it sure looks like the feds have got the goods on him!
 

Mid city Halal Market
“MidCity did 45,750 WIC redemptions in January 2019, which was the same level of business as big box stores such as Walmart.”

 
The feds are suing him and want the three homes Osman allegedly purchased with taxpayer dollars stolen from SNAP and WIC programs.
By the way, when you read the story note that he uses a tactic that I haven’t seen before that involves allowing customers to scan bar codes for approved items, but then giving them some cash back (after he took his cut!).

California Fraudsters Going to Prison for Complex Arson/Insurance Scheme

Wow this is some story! Before I began writing Frauds and Crooks, I knew there were some complicated frauds being perpetrated on us by unsavory members of the ‘new American’ community, but I continue to be surprised at the audacity and criminal intent of some of those we have welcomed to America.

No longer “alleged.”  All three have been convicted either of arson or insurance fraud.

This case involves two Middle Easterners and their American attorney who happens to be the father of Airman Spencer Stone who was one of three men credited with stopping that Paris-bound train terror attack in 2015.  Too bad for Brian Stone who was disbarred and was sentenced to six years in the big house.
The last of the trio of insurance fraudsters was sentenced this week.
Not only were they convicted of insurance fraud, but the elder of the two Middle Easterners had been earlier barred from participating in the food stamp program because he had been busted for ripping us off there too!

New Jersey Couple Ripped-off US Taxpayers for $4.5 Million in Food Stamp Fraud Scheme

Screenshot (939)
I am forced to use a photo of the busted business when no images of the alleged scammers can be found! And, of course, no nationality or immigration status mentioned!

 
Here is the kicker in this case: ‘new American’ store owner Ibrahim Zughbi had been previously convicted of food stamp fraud and was not allowed to own and operate a store that accepted food stamps, but he worked his way around that prohibition!
See how….

Update: More Charges in Ohio Illegal Slaughterhouse Case

I first told you about charges brought against Amin M. Salem, and Mohamed Salem his son here in January.

The case involves much more than the illegal halal slaughter of lambs and goats.  It stemmed from an investigation into a massive food stamp fraud scheme by the pair.
However, apparently there were accomplices in the slaughter ‘business’ that resulted in an investigation that included the EPA for dumping of animal wastes into nearby waterways.
Have a look at my earlier report and then see the latest news from Cleveland, Ohio.
