UK Daily Mail: Former Refugee and US Rep. Ilhan Omar Committed Immigration Fraud

Editor: This is my second post of the day that could have been posted at Refugee Resettlement Watch or here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’  See earlier post on Iraqi refugee liar.

Surely you know that this news, about Ilhan Omar, has been percolating for years and that Minnesota media has helped bury the sordid tale.

Next hubby waiting in the wings? https://fraudscrookscriminals.com/2019/08/28/rep-ilhan-omar-described-as-homewrecker-for-affair-with-democrat-strategist/

Now comes a blockbuster story from the UK Daily Mail reporting on pretty overwhelming evidence, plus a first hand account from a former friend of the controversial Congresswoman and member of the so-called “Squad,” that there must be an investigation launched to get to the truth.

Although the Daily Mail is leading the international news on the story, it was a Minnesota blog, Power Line, which deserves the credit for doggedly digging through the evidence readily available in Minnesota.

From the Daily Mail:

Ilhan Omar DID marry her brother and said she would ‘do what she had to do to get him “papers” to keep him in U.S.’, reveals Somali community leader

I love how the DM does a summary of the key points in their long investigative piece.  Here are the bullet points. But, please read it all! And, don’t miss the marital time line they created for the controversial Congresswoman and the great pics!

~Ilhan Omar told friends years ago that the man who went on to become her second husband was in fact her brother, DailyMail.com can confirm

~Abdihakim Osman is the first person to go on record to speak of how Omar said she wanted to get her brother papers so he could stay in the United States

~It has long been rumored that Omar and Ahmed Elmi are siblings, but because of a lack of paperwork in war-torn Somalia, proof has never been uncovered

~Osman said: ‘She said she needed to get papers for her brother to go to school. We all thought she was just getting papers to allow him to stay in this country’

~Omar was married to her second husband Elmi in 2009 by a Christian minister – although she is Muslim

~She was first married to Ahmed Hirsi in 2002 in a Muslim ceremony, before they split in 2008 – but she later had another child with Hirsi while legally wed to Elmi

~Osman said: ‘When [Hirsi] and Ilhan got married, a lot of people were invited. It was a big Islamic wedding uniting two large clans in the community’

~He added: ‘When she married Elmi, no one even knew about it… No one knew there had been a wedding until the media turned up the certificate years later’

OMAR’S REIGN OF TERROR

 

Scott Johnson

As of this morning [Feb 21], I can’t find a story in the Minnesota media that follows up on the Daily Mail’s report that Rep. Ilhan Omar married her brother in 2009 for fraudulent purposes. It’s not breaking news. We — Preya Samsundar, David Steinberg, and I — have been telling the story over the past three and a half years. The underlying story is Omar’s reign of terror seeking to suppress the story. The reign of terror extended beyond the Somali community to scoop up David Steinberg in Omar enforcer Guhaad Hashi’s terroristic threats last month. I reported on those threats here.

My original Somali source was Abdi Nur. He now speaks in the Daily Mail story by Martin Gould.

Keep reading the incredible tale.

By the way, it is my belief that there is possibly additional immigration fraud that was perpetrated on America when she and her family were first admitted as refugees.

The entire family reunification program from Somalia was halted for years beginning in 2008 when the US State Department found widespread fraud with Somalis lying about who was family and who wasn’t.

Looking forward to a federal investigation!

Number of Victims of Texas Kenyan Killer Reaches 22, Additional Lawsuits Filed

“We made an assumption that it was safe. These ladies, these widows are the most vulnerable part of society. I feel like they were sitting ducks.”

(Cliff Harris, former Dallas Cowboy and son-in-law of one of the latest victims to be identified)

 

This is an update of my posts that extend back to May of last year when Kenyan Billy Chemirmir was arrested and charged with the murders of 12 vulnerable senior women mostly living in upscale retirement facilities in and around Dallas.

The number of victims is now at 22, and could still rise higher.

***Update*** Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review does a deeper look into the fact that Chemirmir should never have been in the country and our sanctuary mentality is responsible for the deaths of these women just as much as Chemirmir is!

Alleged serial killer, Billy Chemirmir, is said to have arrived in the US two decades ago, overstayed a visa, and remained here after marrying an American. I have never seen any definitive information on his immigration status, but he had run-ins with the law and should have been removed from the country. https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/ureport/article/2001274445/kenyan-family-shocked-over-reports-that-their-son-killed-an-81-year-old-at-a-texas-elderly-home

Most of the women were allegedly smothered with a pillow apparently for their jewelry and other valuables.  The killing spree went on for years before the police unraveled the case and then only because one woman survived and was able to give a description of the African man who tried to kill her.

Charles Scudder, a reporter at the Dallas Morning News has been doing work that deserves a Pulitzer Prize for his dogged investigative work on a case that you know the mainstream media is failing to notice.

Here is Scudder’s latest report on two new deaths now linked to the Kenyan Killer.

This story should be on national news!  Where is CNN, MSNBC and Fox News?

New suits in Billy Chemirmir case identify two more alleged victims, offer new details

Two days before she died in March 2018, Miriam Nelson told staff at her Plano senior living complex that an intruder had been in her apartment.

Now, after police and prosecutors say she was smothered by serial murder suspect Billy Chemirmir, her family says that the complex where Nelson lived — Preston Place Retirement Community — should have done more to protect her.

Lawsuits filed in the 4th County Court at Law in Dallas on Tuesday by three families, including Nelson’s, detail what one of their attorneys, Trey Crawford, says is a pattern of “woefully deficient security measures” at Preston Place. The suits also provide greater insight into Chemirmir’s alleged actions as he visited North Texas senior living homes.

The suits list two new alleged victims who were not publicly linked to Chemirmir previously. One, who was not named in the suits, died Dec. 10, 2017, the documents state. The other is 93-year-old Mamie Dell Miya, who died Dec. 8, 2017.

Chemirmir has not been indicted in either death, but the suits include Plano police reports that state Miya’s death is a suspected capital murder case.

Miriam Nelson was the mother-in-law of former Dallas Cowboys Hall of Famer Cliff Harris.

Chemirmir is accused of murdering nearly two dozen elderly people, mostly women, throughout North Texas. Seven of the alleged slayings occurred at Preston Place.

In all, that makes 22 deaths that have been publicly linked to Chemirmir. It could make him one of Texas’ most prolific serial killers.

Among the family members wanting improved security at Preston Place and other senior living facilities is former Dallas Cowboys safety and 2020 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Cliff Harris, whose mother-in-law was Miriam Nelson.

[….]

According to the suits filed Tuesday, the daughter of another resident posted fliers warning residents about the intruder a few days after Nelson’s body was found. The flier noted that Preston Place had no black male maintenance employees and said that residents should call police if such a stranger came to their doors.

The suit claims that Preston Place management removed the fliers the next day.

“We made an assumption that it was safe,” Harris told The Dallas Morning News on Tuesday. “These ladies, these widows are the most vulnerable part of society. I feel like they were sitting ducks.

There is much more, read it all and forward to your social media lists.

I repeat! This story should be on national news!  Where is CNN, MSNBC and Fox News?

Please visit my December post where I told you about how some of the daughters of the Kenyan Killer’s victims have joined together to take action in hopes of avoiding the same dreadful fate that befell their mothers.

Texas: Their Mothers Were Murdered!

 

Lewiston: African Involved with Death of Maine Man Sentenced to 7 DAYS

Oh brother, no wonder people get so steamed about our ‘new Americans!’

This is an update of a story we followed here at ‘Frauds and Crooks’ but could also have been posted at RRW because some of those involved in the beating death of Donald Giusti are Somali refugees.

Readers who are not also reading RRW should see a recent post on Lewiston here.

I reported the arrest of one of those involved in the gang of rampaging ‘youths’ here in April.

Now this….

From the Press Herald (h/t: Frank):

Lewiston man sentenced to 7 days in jail for role in Donald Giusti’s death

AUBURN — A Lewiston man involved with the 2018 melee near Kennedy Park that left a man dead was sentenced Monday in Androscoggin County Superior Court to seven days in jail and a $300 fine.

No mention of where he is from or how he came to be living in Lewiston.

Pierre Musafiri, 23, was facing a misdemeanor assault charge for kicking Donald Giusti while he lay badly injured on Knox Street after a confrontation between two groups near Kennedy Park on June 12, 2018.

Several members of Giusti’s family sat near the back of the courtroom and watched as Musafiri was sentenced.

Patrick Nickerson, Musafiri’s attorney, told the Giusti family that Musafiri expressed that “he is sorry for what he did, that what he did was a mistake and that he can’t take it back.”

“He told me to express his sorrow for what happened and that he takes responsibility for his conduct,” Nickerson said.

After the sentencing, Musafiri immediately was taken into custody.

Now here is the most important line at the end of the story:

Gee, I wonder why?  They don’t want to hear Mainers unload?

Extra Scrutiny at US Border with Canada; CAIR has Hissy Fit

Last night I had a look at CAIR’s twitter feed (you should all do that from time to time).  It was very illuminating.  They have been hollering for days about a slowdown in movement across the Washington State/Canada border due to Border Patrol doing a little extra checking of those who might pose harm to America.

By the way, in case CAIR and you have forgotten, the President’s travel ban is still in place and Iran is on the list, so checking Iranians right now is doubly important.

(I’ll have more to say about the travel ban at RRW in light of John Binder’s Breitbart post yesterday about how we are still taking refugees from banned countries.)

Here is one of CAIR’s featured outrage stories by their pals at Vox:

Nearly 200 Iranian Americans were detained at the US-Canada border

 

In recent days, as many as 200 people of Iranian descent, some of them US citizens, have been detained at the US-Canada border and questioned about their political views, family members, and work histories.

About 60 individuals, including American and Canadian citizens, were held for questioning about their “political views and allegiances” at the Canadian border in Blaine, Washington, on Saturday, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a nonprofit that advocates for the rights of Muslims in the US.

 

CAIR has been on twitter for ten years and has 51K followers. This tweet has been up for 22 hours with only 6 retweets. Apparently few care what CAIR is saying.

 

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confiscated their passports and held some of them waiting rooms for as long as 10 hours, refusing to grant them entry to the US, according to CAIR.

By Monday, as many as 140 more people of Iranian descent had been detained at the border. They were repeatedly asked about their birthplaces, family members, schooling, and work histories.

But CBP also told Vox it’s operating with an “enhanced posture at its ports of entry to safeguard our national security” based on current threats to the US — which, according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), could include an Iran-backed terrorist attack.

CBP agents have broad legal authority to detain and question individuals at ports of entry, but not to conduct interrogations for hours without cause.

[….]

Though Saturday’s detentions appeared to be a reaction to the recent escalation of tensions between the US and Iran, the administration had already made it difficult for Iranians to enter the US under President Donald Trump’s travel ban, which also affects nationals of six other countries deemed to be security threats.

[….]

In a statement, CAIR said that according to one of its sources at CBP, DHS had directed CBP officials to report and detain anyone of Iranian heritage attempting to enter the US if they were found to be “suspicious or adversarial, regardless of citizenship status.”

“These reports are extremely troubling and potentially constitute illegal detentions of United States citizens,” Masih Fouladi, executive director of CAIR’s Washington chapter, said.

Washington’s Democrat Governor Inslee joined CAIR in its criticism. He apparently is fine and dandy with unhindered traffic in and out of his state.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee called CBP’s denial of the detentions “simply not credible.”

“These were detentions, and that is unacceptable,” Inslee said in a statement. “By all accounts, this is detention, regardless of whether the waiting area has bars on the windows.”

More here.

We should all breath a sigh of relief to know that extra scrutiny is happening at our border in light of recent fears that Iranians would exact revenge on us.

Texas: Their Mothers Were Murdered!

Imagine thinking that your elderly mother died of natural causes in an assisted living facility where you thought she was safe and well-cared-for only to receive a call two years later from the police telling you she didn’t die peacefully, but was likely murdered by Billy Chemirmir, a man who should have been removed from the US years before!

This is an update on my series of posts about the man I simply call the Kenyan Killer.

And, this is a story the national news is not touching! 

Imagine the pain of knowing that this is the last face your dear mother saw on this earth.

As we left off back in July the Kenyan Killer was behind bars in Texas awaiting trial for the murder of the last in a string of murders (more under investigation) that could make him the most prolific serial killer in Texas.

Why did these vulnerable senior women and one elderly gentleman die?  He wanted to steal their valuables, especially their jewelry.

Most were allegedly suffocated to death with a pillow.  He was a clever killer.

Reporter Charles Scudder at The Dallas Morning News has penned a two-part series on the case featuring some of the daughters who today suffer from enormous grief and anger over the deaths of their mothers—many of whom might not have died if the police and medical examiners had been sharp enough to see a pattern that might have emerged if, at least in some cases, the assisted living facilities had not been quick to assume death by natural causes.

The tip-off to some family members that something didn’t add-up was that their mothers’ jewelry was missing—one guardian angel necklace in particular.

The fabulous two-part series is behind a paywall.  It is an important paywall because it funds indepth journalism like this story.  Part 1 is here and Part II here

The two part series is entitled:

Guardians

Nearly two years after her mother died in a Dallas senior living apartment, Shannon Gleason Dion got a shocking call from a Plano
detective.

Her mother had likely been murdered, he told her, by a man who could be among the most prolific serial killers in Texas history.

Here is a bit of how reporter Scudder sets the scene in his opening paragraphs of Part II.  Shannon got that call:

Her 92-year-old mother, Doris Gleason, had died nearly two years earlier at The Tradition-Prestonwood, a luxury senior living facility in Far North Dallas. “Old age,” the death certificate had said.

No one could explain why jewelry was missing from the apartment. No one knew why Doris wasn’t wearing the guardian angel necklace she never took off. But Shannon had done her own sleuthing.

She’d learned that jewelry had been stolen from the apartments of other residents who had died.

Scudder’s story is riveting….

Wanting something good to come out of their suffering, five daughters have launched a new group!
