DC and Virginia Do NOT Want Federal Shelters for Unaccompanied Alien Children

This is an update of a story I posted here in August where we learned that even the Washington Post was calling out local Leftwing politicians for their hypocrisy!

It is your classic ‘Not-in-my-backyard’ tale.

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser has rolled out new regulations in a bid to block the project!

Washington, DC and its wealthy (Democrat-run) bedroom communities of northern Virginia do not want shelters for the mostly teens coming across our borders illegally.

Send them to Arizona and Texas instead!

From the Washington Business Journal:

Trump administration drops plans for Northern Virginia immigrant shelter

The Trump administration has called off its plans to bring a new shelter for unaccompanied immigrant children to Northern Virginia.

Federal officials are “no longer conducting exploratory assessments of vacant properties to lease” in the region, according to an email from spokespeople with the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement. The agency revealed in August that it was considering a variety of Northern Virginia jurisdictions for a new, 110,000-square-foot facility.

But that move prompted fierce pushback from local leaders…

[….]

The HHS officials did not say why they ultimately declined to pursue a shelter in the region. They added in the email that they’ve also stopped searching for space in Atlanta, Central Florida and Los Angeles, and will likely pursue new facilities in Texas and Arizona instead.

The mayor of Alexandria, Virginia, Justin Wilson, said if the feds send some bucks to the city he might consider discussing it further.

“If the federal government wished to provide the city with the resources to care for these children, in partnership, I would be open to discussing such a scenario,” Wilson wrote. “But as it has been presented to the city at this point, I do not believe this is something the city should be a part of.”

The Trump administration’s plans for a similar immigrant shelter in D.C. are considerably more unsettled.

Separately from the search for space in Northern Virginia, HHS also plans to work with Maryland-based contractor Dynamic Service Solutions to open a new shelter in Takoma. Mayor Muriel Bowser, however, has rolled out new regulations in a bid to block that project, though it remains unclear whether federal officials have a way to sidestep her efforts.

Margery Magill, International Agricultural Development Alumna, Passes Away Unexpectedly

Last night I wanted to see if there was anything new on the murder of Margery Magill.

She was the young woman stabbed to death by a stranger while walking a dog in Washington last week.

Magill
Margery Magill raised Seeing Eye puppies while in 4-H http://guidedogs.blogspot.com/2010/07/puppy-raising-youth-scholarship-winners.html

By all accounts Margery had a lot to give to the world as you can see by the death announcement at UC Davis where she had been an outstanding student.  My headline is their headline—-passes away unexpectedly!

No mention of how she passed away!

No mention of the creep who allegedly murdered her—a refugee from Ethiopia!  Is it because he was African? A refugee? Someone we ‘welcomed’ to America? Black while she was white?

Just like the Texas story about alleged mass murderer, Kenyan Billy Chemirmir, the politically correct powers that be will sweep the uncomfortable news from public view.

Maybe if their weapons weren’t pillows in Chemirmir’s case or knives in the brutal murder of Margery Magill, but they had used guns, the stories might live for a few additional days.

Another vulnerable American woman murdered, another African ‘new American,’ but weapon unknown…

I was checking my list of murders last night and in addition to Margery, we have the case still on-going in Noel, Missouri where law enforcement is searching for a Somali man for questioning in the murder of Jessica McCormack whose daughters he initially kidnapped.

He is apparently still on the loose.  Learn more about Jessica, here.

I’ll do my best to report any news on these cases going forward even as the national media moves on to what? Gun control? Hurricanes? Trump’s evil border polices!

 

Washington, DC: New American Stabs Young Woman to Death in Apparent Random Attack

***Update*** Breitbart is reporting that the alleged killer came to the US as a child in a refugee family from Ethiopia. He became a US citizen a few years ago.

I’m headed out, but just want to quickly post this dreadful story (hat tip: Jim).

I’ll let you search for the details yourself (it is all over the news).

But, here is Jim Hoft’s headline at Gateway Pundit:

Ethiopian National Eliyas Aregahegne Stabs to Death Random White Girl Walking Her Dog in DC

Of course none of the major media is reporting anything about his status as a ‘new American’ from Ethiopia.

Margery and the monster
Margery and the monster…..

But here is more information at Heavy.com about the evil creep.  On social media he described himself as Ethiopian.  Note (when you read the Heavy story) that he was an Obama and Hillary supporter.

Eliyas Aregahegne: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Eliyas Aregahegne, the suspect accused in the random stabbing of a Washington D.C. dog walker who was interning in the city, described himself as a once promising college student and scholarship winner.

That all changed, police say, on August 27, 2019; they accuse him of repeatedly stabbing a stranger to death on the street in a vicious random attack. The victim was named as Margery Magill, 27, of Northwest, D.C. Police wrote that, on August 28, 2109, Eliyas Aregahegne, 24, of Northwest, D.C., was “arrested and charged with first degree murder while armed.”

“It’s absolutely tragic. I still can’t wrap my head around it,” Magill’s sister, Raeann Magill, told News4. “You know, out walking a dog and to be attacked like that. How can anyone even fathom that? I mean, it’s truly tragic and I even think to myself, why her?” Police say they don’t know.

[….]

Eliyas Aregahegne wrote on Facebook that he was single, lived in Washington D.C.,and was a “POSSE Scholar UW-Madison.” He also wrote that he was from Washington D.C. On Instagram, Aregahegne wrote, “18 y/o, Aries🐏. Ethiopian.UW-Madison Class of 2017.” Heavy contacted the UW-Madison PR office and learned that Aregahegne was briefly a student at Madison but not in 2017 as he wrote.

It makes me sick!

African immigrant kills white woman—how many times lately have we reported that story!

Mark my words, but by tomorrow or the next day the story will be forgotten because once again the horrific news runs counter to what the PC media want you to believe which is that they are all here for a better life!

DC and Rich Suburbs Fight to Keep Child Migrant Centers out of THEIR Neighborhoods

It is your classic not-in-my-backyard case where the mostly Democrats who control the Washington DC government and its bedroom communities in Northern Virginia (some of the wealthiest counties in American) are in a furor because the Trump Administration has dared to propose child migrant centers in THEIR communities.

Monica Showhalter writing at the American Thinker tells us all about it,

Rich part of Washington, D.C. goes tooth-and-claw to prevent new child-migrant shelter in its neighborhood

First she tells us what the Washington Post said on Friday about the actions of the local elites.

MANY AMERICANS are rightly outraged by the Trump administration’s treatment of migrant children, who have been separated from parents and ill-treated by authorities. Democrats have been understandably eager to distance themselves from such policies — a stance that can result in knee-jerk opposition even to sensible practices in effect during the Obama administration.

That might explain the nearly uniform outcry from Washington-area politicians incensed at federal plans to build new shelters for migrant children in Northern Virginia and the District .

The shelters, state-licensed and similar to scores across the county in operation since before President Trump took office, would help move migrant children out of squalid, cramped Border Patrol stations near the U.S.-Mexico border. They would provide a way station for unaccompanied minors while federal officials seek to place them with U.S.-based relatives or foster families.

But local politicians, nearly all Democrats, have balked at cooperating with federal authorities on any immigration matter. They have denounced the proposed new shelters with objections that smack of NIMBYism masquerading as humane concern for children. This month, the administration of D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) enacted emergency rules that blocked a planned federal shelter.

The Washington Post is saying that (LOL! not VDARE!).

Showalter goes on.  Here are a few snips. I’ve left out her descriptions of some horrible murder cases in the area, so be sure to visit American Thinker for the whole piece.

Actually, the area has been plagued by some of these child migrants, getting its name in the news more than once for its gruesome murders.

MS-13 Recruits the ‘children.’  https://www.breitbart.com/border/2017/05/25/detective-ms-13-using-kids-bolster-ranks-commit-violent-crimes/

 

It’s indisputable that bringing in more unvetted migrants mean there are going to be more of these killings going on, something that might just affect property values and the quality of life in this tony district.

[….]

So many gruesome crimes? Gangs increasing? Recruitment younger and younger? Child migrants here alone looking for some “family”? Gangs know child decapitators won’t get punished? With that sort of thing going on, you can bet the migrant center is going to be a bonanza for gang recruitment and a new wave of gruesome crimes.

Funny how these asylum seekers always seem to end up in U.S. areas where those gangs they’re supposedly fleeing are right there waiting for them.

[….]

The migrant community that rich Washington D.C. has encouraged for its cheap gardeners and maids — and “can’t live without” — as the Daily Beast says, has always been insulated from the real problems of allowing all unvetted comers into the country.Well, now the place for the child migrant shelter is being rightly placed in an affluent part of Washington so they can live with the consequences of their choices, too.

It sounds like President Trump or whoever he’s got on the federal side trying to build this shelter is combining proximity to the Salvadoran illegal immigrant community – Washington’s largest – with a little taste of the medicine these liberals would like to inflict on the border regions and poorer parts of the country.

I can’t think of a better place to put that shelter. Let them live with the result of their own hypocrisy.
