Never Let a Good H-1B Visa Go to Waste!

Todd Bensman writing at the Center for Immigration Studies does a deep dive into the case I reported here in March of the Mayo Clinic doctor who wanted to kill kuffar.

Thanks to ‘meanymom’ for catching the story from a week ago.

How’s that vetting going?

Muhammad Masood

During his two years working as a “research coordinator” on an H-1B visa for the Rochester, Minn., Mayo Clinic, Pakistani medical doctor Muhammad Masood allegedly saw himself as having gotten “behind enemy lines” where “not many people cant [sic] even reach here to attack.”

A federal criminal complaint almost lost in the nation’s Corona-19 virus crisis alleges that Masood planned from the day he arrived in America on his H-1B visa in February 2018 that he would use the rare access it afforded to learn something useful about his enemies so as to conduct violent jihad in line with his perceived religious duty.

By January and February 2020, according to the complaint, the 28-year-old was messaging on an encrypted platform about how sick he had grown of smiling every day at the “passing kuffar”, a derogatory term for non-Muslims that often justifies execution. All the smiling was “just not to make them suspicios [sic] … I cannot tolerate it anymore.”

He messaged that he could not let his H-1B visa go to waste. “Sometimes I wantto [sic] attack enemy when I am behind enemy linea [sic] itself,” he messaged in January. “[I] wonder if I will miss the opportunity of attacking the enemy when I was in the middle of it.”

By the grace of an undercover FBI investigation, Masood will do no such thing.

Agents arrested Masood on March 19. By then, he had changed the plan from attacking the local kuffars he hated so much to joining ISIS in northeast Iran and Afghanistan, or in Syria as a medic, or maybe engineering drones “and also fight”. It’s unclear why he changed his mind about attack on U.S. soil.

So we aren’t producing enough docs and need to be welcoming the likes of Masood?

Dear Mr. President, You Will Not Energize the Base with Half Measures on Immigration

So much for the President halting all immigration to the US during the on-going Chinese virus crisis.  See yesterday’s post.

 

Today we have Politico (of all places) describing what is believed to be the direction President Trump’s executive order on immigration might take when it is revealed possibly today.

Trump’s immigration pause falls well short of full ban

On Monday night, President Donald Trump vowed he would suspend immigration into the United States during the coronavirus outbreak.

On Tuesday, he unveiled his plan. It was far short of a full ban.
Trump announced that he will sign an executive order blocking most people for 60 days from receiving a permanent residency visa, or green card. But the order will still allow the government to continue processing visas for hundreds of thousands of temporary employees, including farm workers, landscapers and crab pickers — the largest source of immigration.

The order is also expected to carve out additional exemptions for so-called essential employees, including health care workers, and immigrants who come into the United States through immediate family members, according to a person familiar with the situation.

Trump, who will sign the executive order as soon as Wednesday, said the measure will be reassessed in two months.

“It would be wrong and unjust for Americans laid off by the virus to be replaced with new immigrants, labor flown in from abroad,” Trump said at the daily White House briefing, nodding to the 22 million Americans who have filed for unemployment in recent weeks. “We must first take care of the American worker, take care of the American worker.”

[….]

The move angered conservatives who were hoping the president would go further. The Trump administration has already paused most routine visa processing and refugee cases during the coronavirus pandemic, meaning the president’s executive order may be redundant for many already-stalled cases. Moreover, a majority of immigrants seeking green cards are already living in the U.S.

The Administration has not paused the Special refugee status for Afghans.

“Briefly delaying green cards for people, most of whom are already in the U.S. and working, and ignoring work visas doesn’t help U.S. workers and doesn’t ease pressure on hospitals, “ said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies.“Can’t know for sure until there’s actually something official to read, but this looks more like a political gesture than a serious policy move.”

[….]

“To continue most immigration at this time would show a callous disregard for those Americans who are enduring deep economic suffering,” said Roy Beck, president of NumbersUSA, which supports immigration restrictions.

[….]

Trump’s announcement had his critics decrying the move as a transparent attempt to rile up the president’s base in an election year, while distracting from the ongoing criticism of his coronavirus response.

Trump Making Another Move to Slow Migration to the US as Administration Seeks to Stop Birth Tourism

If we don’t keep Donald Trump in the White House for another four years, you will never again see head lines like this or, for that matter, any effort to slow migration to America.

Indeed if he doesn’t succeed in November, there will be no need for blogs like mine—we will be cooked and done!

Birth tourism, one of the biggest immigration frauds perpetrated on Americans! https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/31/asia/chinese-birth-tourism-arrest/index.html

 

From CNBC:

Trump administration unveils new rules aimed at preventing foreign women from traveling to US to give birth

The State Department on Thursday unveiled new rules that could make it more difficult for pregnant foreign nationals to travel to the United States using tourist visas, citing security concerns.

The rules, which will become effective on Friday, are an attempt to crack down on “birth tourism,” or the practice of giving birth in the United States in order to obtain U.S. citizenship for a child. They apply to B visas, or those issued to nonimmigrants.

“Closing this glaring immigration loophole will combat these endemic abuses and ultimately protect the United States from the national security risks created by this practice,” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement. “It will also defend American taxpayers from having their hard-earned dollars siphoned away to finance the direct and downstream costs associated with birth tourism.”

The Center for Immigration Studies, a conservative group that advocates for stricter immigration laws, estimated last year that there were 33,000 births to women in the country temporarily on tourist visas between the second half of 2016 and the first half of 2017.

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.

Georgia: CAIR and the Southern Poverty Law Center Join Forces to Block Data Collection in the Prison System

When I read Ann Coulter’s book “Adios America” I was struck by an important theme in the book and that is that she said it is virtually impossible to get information about immigration status of those incarcerated in America jails and prisons.
Adios America
Indeed this blog—Frauds and Crooks—is built around the generally accepted premise that a very large percentage of those jailed in the US are aliens mostly of the illegal variety, but including legal immigrants as well.
So if that isn’t true, why wouldn’t the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the SPLC want the data collected and put the issue to rest once and for all?
Of course, the answer is that they fear what the results would show!
