Illegal Alien Mexican on Trial for Gruesome Murder Costs Iowa Taxpayers a Bundle

The next time you see one of those glowing economic studies from some place like Welcoming America or the New American Economy about how immigrants boost the economy in places like Baltimore, take a look and see if the cost of arrests, trials and incarcerations of alien (aka new American) criminals are factored in.

Mollie-Tibbetts2-640x480
Molly and the Mexican man accused of murdering her…

 

A few days ago, John Binder at Breitbart reminded us of the dreadful murder in Iowa last year of a beautiful young woman—Molly Tibbets.

Do you remember the story? You probably do, but the mainstream media has moved on (once it was learned that the suspect is yes, an illegal alien).

Read Binder’s account of the latest slap at Americans.

And, as you do, ponder this:  it was a Bill Clinton EXECUTIVE ORDER that put in place the requirement that local/state governments (and even businesses like hospitals) must pay for interpreters for any aliens with problems.

It is not a law passed by Congress and apparently no President since Clinton has considered revoking it.

Binder at Breitbart,

Mollie Tibbetts Trial: Taxpayers Billed $12.5K for Illegal Alien’s Translator

 

Iowa taxpayers have been billed more than $12,000 thus far to provide a full-time court translator to illegal alien Cristhian Bahena Rivera, accused of murdering 20-year-old college student Mollie Tibbetts in Brooklyn, Iowa last year.

In August 2018, Bahena Rivera, a 25-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, was charged with Tibbetts’ murder after police said he admitted to confronting and chasing down the young woman.

After a nationwide search, Tibbetts’ body was found in a cornfield in Poweshiek County, Iowa. The illegal alien lived in a region of Iowa that was surrounded by sanctuary cities, as Breitbart News noted, and worked on a dairy farm using a stolen ID and Social Security card after allegedly crossing the U.S.-Mexico border as a child.

Court records obtained by local media reveal that a translator for Bahena Rivera — from Missouri — has cost taxpayers in Iowa about $12,485 thus far.

This is the latest perk Bahena Rivera has enjoyed thus far while preparing for the murder trial against him, which is supposed to begin in November. This year, the illegal alien’s attorneys successfully got the trial date moved back, attempted to have his alleged murder confession thrown out, were rewarded with more than $3,000 in taxpayer funds to obtain an expert witness, and successfully got his trial moved to a less white, more Hispanic-populated region of the state.

Recently a reader at my facebook page commented that I post scare stories and don’t tell people what to do.

The scare stories are meant to spur patriots to action!

When I first began writing Frauds and Crooks I regularly told readers what they might do about the news I was posting, but wasn’t sure if anyone did what I suggested.

Now I ask myself, well heck, I know it doesn’t come easily for us, but aren’t most of you politically savvy enough by now to figure out a role for yourselves, even some small things that might benefit your fellow Americans (your neighbors) in your own local areas.

None of us, me or you, are in any position to change the big stuff, but if everyone does some small things we might see change (LOL! Maybe even in our lifetimes!).

question mark

So what might you do about this news—first spread the story far and wide!  Use all of your social media resources.

And, write to the White House, tell the President that this Executive Order (13166) should be revoked and if Congress wants to require interpreters for everything a non-English-speaking person needs help with—pass a law.

Write to the White House every day.  So at the most you lose 5 minutes every day?

And, how about this?  Find the cost of interpreter services in the city or county/state in which you live.

I remember years ago seeing information that translators were costing Montgomery County, MD a million a year.  I bet it is way above that now!  Even your efforts to get the information will cause a stir!  If you get the information, send a letter to elected officials and send letters to the editor, and just keep bugging them!

A reader sent me an article just yesterday about the Tea Party being dead.  I couldn’t bring myself to read it (too depressing), but it is because of this…..

…..Never forget, the Leftwingers, the Progressives, get what they want by just making the same demands every day, every week, every year while many of us throw up our hands and say, heck this is too hard!

Trump Tweets about Somali Refugees Arrested in Arizona

This morning I wanted to see whether the news of two days ago about Somali refugees being arrested in Arizona as they tried to board a plane for Egypt in order to join ISIS had reached the mainstream media.

Apparently other than a mention on Fox News that got the President’s attention and mentions on some Washington DC publications, the story is not getting much national coverage.

Did the Washington Post mention the news? Nope.  How about The New York Times? Nope again.

But I do see it mentioned on Yahoo Entertainment with this headline. LMHO!

The story is about Trump and his tweets!

 

Trump tweets arrests of Somali ISIS sympathizers in Arizona: ‘Get smart people!’

 

President Trump on Tuesday used the megaphone that is his Twitter feed to draw attention to the arrest of two Somali refugees in Arizona who authorities say were planning to travel from Tucson to Egypt to join the Islamic State.

Screenshot (1051)
This is why the mainstream media hates Trump, he gets the news out that they don’t want to report.

 

Ahmed Mahad Mohamed, 21, and Abdi Yemani Hussein, 20, were charged with providing support to a terror group. They were arrested Friday at Tucson International Airport.

According to federal authorities, Mohamed had told an undercover FBI agent during social media exchanges that he was “thirsty” for the blood of disbelievers and that “the best wake up call is [for the] Islamic State to get victory or another 911.”

The president also tagged “Fox & Friends,” typically an indication that the tweet was responding to a segment on his favorite cable news morning show.  [Maybe the Prez watches Fox because it reports on news like this!—ed]

The indictment did not indicate that the two men had committed any acts of violence in the United States.

That last line is the Left’s go-to position on any refugee terrorist charge.  Well they didn’t kill any Americans yet!  Duh! Because law enforcement nabbed them before they could!

By the way, this pair of Islamic refugee terrorists most likely got into the US during the Obama era.

It’s a very good thing that Trump has his Twitter “megaphone.”  Shame the mainstream media!  Keep ’em coming!

A Trip Down Memory Lane: Baltimore Welcomes Diversity

Editor:   This week the President challenged local Democrat elected officials to fix their decaying cities with special attention to Baltimore.  But, I am seeing no mention of the unsuccessful push there for more than a decade to rebuild Baltimore with immigrants.

This is a post I wrote in May of 2015 at Refugee Resettlement Watch as Baltimore was in flames.

Changing American cities by changing the people (pushing out African Americans!)?  Is it possible that diversity doesn’t build economic strength, but in fact further destroys African American communities?

Baltimore: Thousands of impoverished refugees poured into city in last ten years; fuel for the fire?

Is Baltimore a failed social experiment in the government’s (and big business’s) push for more diversity in your towns and cities?

Can we call it a first spectacular failure for Obama’s Task Force on New Americans plan to seed communities with third-worlders?

Screenshot (1049)
The Lutheran Center in Baltimore is home to Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, one of the Top Nine refugee resettlement contractors in the country, and it is headquartered in one of Baltimore’s better neighborhoods. This is what we said in 2014: Gotta keep up their real estate holdings! The Lutheran Center is a six-story structure constructed in 1999 on property owned by Baltimore’s historic Christ Lutheran Church. The building is located near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor in the historic Federal Hill neighborhood, a charming area rich with history and an eclectic array of eateries and shopping venues. 

In fact, Baltimore is a preferred refugee resettlement site according to the Office of Refugee Resettlement!

Baltimore, a majority African American (63%) city where we hear jobs are scarce and poverty is profound, with by several accounts amounting to 25% of the population living below the poverty level, the US State Department and its refugee resettlement  contractors  have nevertheless been pouring more diversity and consequently more poverty into the city for at least a decade.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake fell for the feds ‘progressive’ scheme here in 2012 when she said that bringing more refugees and immigrants to the city would boost the economy completely failing to understand that, just because African Americans are black, they wouldn’t simply ‘welcome’ the rainbow colors of the world to compete with them for jobs, housing and scarce social services.

The hard truth was revealed in the New York Times of all places.  African Americans don’t take kindly to diversity!

Here is one shocking little fact that was buried in a New York Times story about the recent riots:

Black gang leaders directed angry rioters to Asian and Arab shops while protecting stores owned and run by fellow African Americans.

Then he described how he and some Bloods had stood in front of black-owned stores to protect them from looting or vandalism. He said they had made sure no black children, or reporters, were hit by rioters. They pointed them toward Chinese- and Arab-owned stores. Charles said Mr. Gray had brought gangs together.

So much for the diversity-is-beautiful myth!

How much diversity has been brought to Baltimore to compete with poor African Americans?

This morning [in May 2015—ed] I went to the data base and checked out the numbers of refugees deposited in Baltimore since 2005.  I’m listing only countries of origin if there were more than 10 refugees resettled there. There were many other countries represented by smaller numbers.

Baltimore’s new diversity (these are newly resettled from abroad since 2005 [to May of 2015.—ed], not secondary migrants from elsewhere in the US):

Azerbaijan (10)

Bhutan (1,352)

Burma (1,109)

Burundi (11)

Cent. African Republic (16)

Congo (26)

DR Congo (253)

Eritrea (374)

Iran (136)

Iraq (404)

Liberia (99)

Nepal (10)

Pakistan (13)

Palestine (19)

Russia (196)

Somalia (217)

Sudan (225)

Syria (26)

Uzbekistan (36)

Vietnam (15)

All are in direct competition with African Americans for jobs, education, housing and social services.  And, these numbers do not include the thousands of illegal aliens welcomed to Baltimore in the last decade!

(End of 2015 post.)

Afterthought:  Can we conclude that pouring ‘new Americans’ into impoverished and decaying US cities is not the panacea the Progressive social engineers want you to believe?

If it works then we should see Baltimore as a shining city on the bay by now, right?

You might want to revisit Robert Putnam’s work about how diversity in fact destroys community cohesiveness.

Trump: Gotta Problem with America? Go Back and Fix Your Own Country!

That sentiment that got the Open Borders pushers undies in a wad, is a sentiment expressed from time to time over the years at Refugee Resettlement Watch especially as it relates to Somalia.

Why indeed aren’t the well-educated (on the US taxpayer’s dime) and know-it-all Somalis in America going back and doing anything for Somalia and their fellow Africans?

Trump and Omar
The controversy surrounding Trump’s remarks and Omar’s own in-your-face style have gone a long way to educate Americans about Somalis in the US. Keep her talking!

The excuse now of course is the terrorism there thanks to Al-Shabaab, but long before the Islamic terrorists Somalis couldn’t govern themselves because clans squabbled among themselves and corruption was rampant.

The United Nations is finding out the hard way that few want to go to that mess of a country as they try to repatriate Somalis from their huge camp, Dadaab. 

Periodically the Kenyan government threatens to close it because they say it is a hot bed for terrorist organizing and recruiting.

(The US State Department plucked Socialist Rep. Ilhan Omar from Dadaab.)

I’m posting this story to show that Western nations no longer have much interest in ‘welcoming’ Somali refugees to their countries—are they just too much trouble?

UN: Fewer refugees willing to leave Dadaab for Somalia

 

Insecurity in Somalia is diminishing the numbers of refugees willing to return home from the Dadaab camps in Kenya, the United Nations said recently.

dabaab from the air
Over 200,000, mostly Somalis, live at Dadaab

A total of 84,230 Somalis have taken part in the UN’s voluntary return programme since its inception five years ago.

So far this year, fewer than 1400 have gone back to Somalia under UN auspices.

[….]

The Dadaab head count stood at 210,472 at the end of June. That represents a decline of only 84 persons over the past three months.

This is the part I wanted you to see!

Of course up until the Trump presidency we had admitted over 140,000 Somalis to America as refugees.  A vast number of those came to us from this UN camp.  That number doesn’t include all of the other ways Somalis ‘found their way’ here.

Canada and Sweden will take the most this year from Dadaab!

The quota for transfer of Dadaab residents to other countries stands at 975 individuals for all of 2019. Canada is set to receive the largest share of Somali refugees (350), followed by Sweden (300), Australia (200), United Kingdom (75) and the United States (50).

There is thus little chance that the Dadaab complex will soon be emptied of refugees — unless they are forced to leave. But the Kenyan government has pledged to respect the rights of refugees, including safeguards against involuntary repatriation.

See my previous posts on Dadaab here, and don’t miss the story on UN corruption there. New American Ilhan Omar posts are here.

Russians and Egyptians Win Big in Diversity Visa Lottery Drawing

Oh joy! more Russians*** and more Egyptians to help speed up the goal of changing America by changing the people!

Trump finger.jpg
Trump called the Diversity Visa Lottery “the worst of the worst!”

I guess most of you know by now that we have a legal immigration program called the Diversity Visa Lottery (aka Green Card Lottery) because America isn’t sufficiently diversified and each year 50,000 US citizen wannabes from around the world (except from countries that have sent 50,000 of their people recently) get a ticket to Anytown, USA.

The President has voiced his opposition to the giveaway, but so far Congress continues to support the program.

Here the Miami Herald tells us who the lucky winners are this year:

Egyptian and Russian citizens won the most U.S. green cards in this year’s random visa lottery

More than 23 million people from around the world — the applicants and their family members or “derivatives” — tried this year to legally immigrate to the United States and achieve the American Dream through the visa lottery program, the U.S. State Department statistics show.

jackpot
See what Daniel Horowitz at Conservative Review said about the lottery in 2017.  https://www.conservativereview.com/news/end-the-diversity-visa-lottery-today/

Winners were selected through a randomized computer drawing from over 14 million qualified entries received during the 34-day application period last year.

According to the department, the visas were distributed among six geographic regions “with a maximum of seven percent available to persons born in any single country.”

The two countries that won most immigrant visas were Egypt and Russia, with 5,568 and 5,118 winners, respectively, of this year’s DV-2020 diversity lottery, followed by the Democratic Republic of Congo (4,743 applicants selected), Iran (4,101), Nepal (3,696) and Sudan (3,691).

What the hell!

Are we moving the whole of the DR Congo to America? 

We’ve ‘welcomed’ 50,000 from the DR Congo already as refugees, see here, and they are streaming across the US border illegally and ending up in Maine, here, and we still take thousands from that African hot mess of a country through the lottery!

The Miami Herald continues….

Last year, Iran received the highest number of visas — 4,199 — followed by the Democratic Republic of Congo (4,186), Egypt, Ukraine (4,025) and Ethiopia (3,856).

In the Americas region, natives from Cuba benefited the most from this year’s DV-2020 drawing, and 2,703 Cuban nationals were selected at random for a green card. It is a substantial increase compared to last year, when only 326 citizens of Cuba won.  [Really, Cuba! we don’t have enough migrants from Cuba?—-ed]

[….]

The visa lottery is one of the immigration programs that President Donald Trump has openly criticized. He has said that the “worst of the worst” are selected in the cost-free process.

“About 70 percent of immigrants who come to the United States today are admitted based on family relationships or through a random visa lottery —a system that favors random chance over the skills our economy needs,” President Trump’s Immigration Plan for the 21st Century says.

There is much more and a lot of links to follow in the story, go here for more.

My earlier posts on this outrageous legal immigration program signed into law by George HW Bush in 1990 are here.

***Coincidentally my friend Richard just yesterday sent me a 2018 story from VDARE (Mainstream media won’t name Medicare Fraudsters) which educates us to the fact that a very large amount of Medicare fraud is linked to immigrant fraudsters with Russians topping the list.  Ah, the joys of diversity!

“Religious” Groups Push Pompeo to Admit 95,000 Refugees in 2020

Refugee Resettlement Watch might be down for awhile, but that doesn’t mean you won’t get refugee news!

For new readers that 95,000 number is for refugees chosen abroad and flown here on your dime and then resettled by the State Department’s nine paid resettlement contractors.  (The Trump team never got rid of any of the nine as they once promised to do!)

Of course that 95,000 number is in addition to the hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers who illegally entered the US and asked to be declared refugees.  Refugees are eligible for most forms of welfare once designated.

Logo+ refugee council usa

The lobbying arm of the refugee industry, the Refugee Council USA, confirms that 95,000 is their target number for FY2020 which begins October 1, 2019.

They announce their pie-in-the-sky number early and often so then when Trump suggests something less than that they can scream bloody murder.

BTW, as of June 30th of FY19, the Trump Administration had admitted just over 21,000, thus the State Department will have to speed things up to even make the 30,000 ceiling for this year.

The lobbying group Refugee Council USA wants its followers to….

Hold the administration accountable to meeting this year’s 30,000 refugee admissions goal and urge them to commit to resettling at least 95,000 refugees in Fiscal Year 2020, rebuilding the program and returning it to historic norms.

That made me laugh because not even Barack Obama came near their “historic norms.”

“Rebuilding the program” means pouring more taxpayer dollars into the “religious” groups’ coffers. 

The story that caught my eye today is this one from Deseret News.  

There is no mention made that some of those signing a letter to the Secretary of State have a vested financial interest in increasing the number of refugees being admitted.

Religious groups react to rumors the U.S. will stop admitting refugees. What would it mean for U.S. values?

walter mondale
Who dat? They’ve trotted out 90-year-old Walter Mondale to tell Trump we need more refugees!

You can read it yourself.

In addition to Walter Mondale, Deseret News wants you to know that Islamic Relief USA is also pounding Pompeo with a lecture about our “foundational values.”

Mentioned in the story is a letter sent by what the Deseret News calls 40 “faith groups” to Secretary of State Pompeo in June demanding a “robust” program for the coming fiscal year.

You can read the letter here.

Here is a screenshot of the last paragraph:

And now here (below) are the forty plus “faith” groups which signed the letter.

If you are a supporter of any of the hodge podge of groups below and disapprove of their support for this effort, be sure to let them know!

Screenshot (1044)

Of the nine paid resettlement contractors, five groups whose budgets depend on your tax dollars for refugee clients signed the letter: Church World Service, HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, the Episcopal Church and World Relief.

Although several Catholic-affiliated groups are mentioned neither of the giants resettling the largest number of refugees in the US—Catholic Charities or the US Conference of Catholic Bishops—are mentioned.

This is the time to let the President know what your number is for FY2020!  He needs a robust response from you!

This post is filed in my ‘Charity fraud’ category.

Endnote: You might have noticed I’m back to putting the whole post up without using the “continue reading” break because at least this way I know you are getting my full post in your phones etc. as I continue the process of moving away from WordPress.

Catholic Bishops Bemoan Possible Further Slowdown of Refugee Admissions

Of course they do!  If the President reduces the number of refugees permitted to enter the US through the US Refugee Admissions Program they will take a huge hit to their pocketbook.

pope welcoming migrants
Fine and dandy, but do it with private charity, not taxpayer dollars!

(Except of course that they will still receive millions of dollars annually for ‘caring’ for the Unaccompanied Alien Children swarming across our border.)

I told you a few days ago that rumors were being spread among the federal refugee contractors that the President in his annual determination due for submission in September is contemplating a big fat goose egg for the number of refugees to be welcomed to your towns and cities in FY2020.

This story at Catholic News Network is meant to gin-up Leftwing Catholics to complain to the White House and Congress about Trump.

US bishops say reported shutdown of refugee program is ‘disturbing’

 

Washington D.C., Jul 22, 2019 / 01:01 pm (CNA).- If reports of major cuts to the U.S. refugee resettlement and asylum programs are true they are alarming, the chair of the US bishops’ migration committee said Friday.

Bishop Vasquez
Bishop Vasquez of Austin: We want 95,000 paying clients in 2020!

Politico has reported that officials in the Trump administration were considering cutting the annual refugee cap next year to zero, or to greatly reduced numbers such as 10,000 or 3,000. This represents the total number of refugees that would be allowed into the United States in the next fiscal year.

“This recent report, if true, is disturbing and against the principles we have as a nation and a people, and has the potential to end the refugee resettlement program entirely,” Bishop Joe S. Vásquez of Austin said July 19..

The reports were leaked to Politico from three individuals close to recent meetings of security officials.

 
[….]

 
“As Pope Francis has said we must work for ‘globalization of solidarity’ with refugees, not a globalization of indifference. Rather than ending the program, we should work instead to restore the program to its historic norms of an annual resettlement goal of 95,000,” Vasquez concluded.

More here.  And, go here for Vasquez’s full statement as chair of the Migration Committee for the USCCB.

The Bishops will lose MILLIONS of dollars in income!

Conspicuously absent from either of those reports is any mention of the USCCB’s boodle from the feds (well, from you the US taxpayers).

So I went to see what I could find about how much the Bishop’s Migration Fund is being paid to place refugees in your towns and found this report about their funding in 2017.

Previously the Bishops had a very slick annual report (here in 2014) on their Migration Fund, but now they have their federal bucks buried in a larger financial statement.  See it here.

This is a screenshot showing the millions you gave (involuntarily) to their refugee business income. Again, this is just their refugee pile of money, and does not include millions more in federal funding this ‘Christian charity’ gets from the government.

Screenshot (1038)_LI
95% of the Bishops’ refugee resettlement program is funded by you (involuntarily)!

 

Tell the President to cut refugee numbers and get rid of the contractors who spend much of their time badmouthing the Prez while sucking off the federal teat!
