She says she is concerned that the criminal Somalis being deported will take the Chinese Virus with them to Somalia!
Is she representing Somalia or America?
BTW, when I first started writing about Somali refugee criminals and terrorists, the US was not deporting any of them claiming it was not humane to send migrants home to hellhole countries. My! My! how times have changed!
ICE deportation flight, objected to by Omar over COVID fears, included convicted murderer, rapist
Omar had said it was ‘cruel’ to deport immigrants during a pandemic
An Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deportation flight to Somalia — which faced objections from Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., due to fears about the potential spread of COVID-19 — included criminals with convictions for rape, murder and assault, the agency said in a letter to the congresswoman.
“This week, ICE removed 39 Somalia nationals, 36 of whom have criminal histories,” Acting ICE Director Tony Pham said in a letter to Omar. “These crimes include murder, rape, domestic violence, assault, sexual assault, crimes against children, drug trafficking, and conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.”
He also included a list of case backgrounds that he said “should give you reason to applaud the good work ICE has done to protect the American people, including the people of the State of Minnesota.”
Here is what ICE told her in a letter sent September 18th (sorry I couldn’t get a clearer pic):
“This was clear marriage fraud and immigration fraud, that’s a fact.”
(DHS insider with knowledge of the investigation)
That is the gist of news unearthed by Leo Hohmann writing at World Net Daily this week.
A Dept. of Homeland Security insider says they have the goods on her, but the US Attorney in Minnesota, Erica MacDonald, will not be filing charges.
One more example, even under the Trump Administration, that there are two standards of justice one for them and another for us.
If you are new to the controversy, see my previous posts on the Congresswoman’s marriages.
For additional background, if you are interested, for years at Refugee Resettlement WatchI chronicled the history of immigration fraud that was rampant in the Somali ‘community.’
Back in 2008 (and down the memory hole) the US State Department actually halted all Somali family reunification due to the tens of thousands of fraudulent cases they had unearthed. Only a tiny handful of those cheaters was ever located and removed.
DHS insider spills beans on Ilhan Omar criminal charges for marrying brother
Federal investigators have decided not to prosecute Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., for immigration fraud despite the publicly available evidence that she married her brother to gain him lawful status to remain in the United States.
The news that two separate federal agencies have declined to pursue charges against Omar after a months-long probe came from a veteran insider at the Department of Homeland Security.
The case was investigated by the FBI and involved at least one other agency, but the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota, Erica MacDonald, has decided not to prosecute.
MacDonald is a Republican who was appointed to her post in June 2018 by President Trump.
Abdihakim Osman Nur, a member of the Somali-American community in Minnesota, was the first person to go on the record with firsthand evidence of Omar’s marriage to her brother. He told the British-based DailyMail.com earlier this year that Omar told him she wanted to get her brother a green card so he could stay and work in the United States. At the time she was married to her first husband, Ahmed Hirsi.
Omar denounced the accusations as “disgusting lies” by bloggers who were engaging in “Islamophobia.” She refused to address questions on the matter.
Over the years, while writing at Refugee Resettlement Watch, an article would come my way that hinted at the problems within the African “community” between the new African immigrants and our own African-Americans.
(Resettlement contractors loved to place the new Africans in predominantly African-American neighborhoods with, I suppose, the naive notion that since they are all blacks they would love and embrace each other!)
If there were tensions, it was always just hinted (or immediately swept under the rug if a reporter dared mention it) and I suspect that is because it goes against the narrative—how is it possible for a black immigrant to be bigoted against another black person?
Everyone knows only white people can be racists and bigots, right?
Much to my surprise here is an opinion piece at MinnPostpublished a few days ago by second generation Ethiopian immigrant Eskender A. Yousuf.
It took me a few minutes of reading and rereading to understand that he is basically saying that the new immigrant Africans look upon African-Americans, who have been here for generations, as riff-raff, inferior to the real Africans newly arrived.
What is going on, two big admissions in the space of a week about problems in the Minnesota immigrant “community.”
Don’t miss my post at RRW about how Somali culture dictates that women can be treated with abuse.
A call to address anti-Blackness within African immigrant communities
“I was on a recent conference call helping an organization put a statement together and this Sudanese brother says, ‘I don’t understand this Black Lives Matter stuff, I have never felt racism in this country.’
You know, I’m just letting people have it now … we [African-Americans] can sniff out anti-Blackness right when we step in the room, wherever we are. … I have never felt welcomed or comfortable in any African immigrant establishment in Minnesota.”
These words come from a recent conversation I had with a close connection of mine.
This was nothing short of our regular conversations and check-ins; however, this time it felt different. With the wake of the current racial uprisings, it provoked me to publicly call attention this issue.
As a second-generation Ethiopian immigrant who is ethnically Oromo, I was born and raised in the Twin Cities. I never imagined that the place I call home would become the epicenter of historic racial uprisings and protests that sparked a fire across the world.
Stood in solidarity
Amongst the sea of protesters that stood in solidarity in the streets of Minneapolis in the wake of George Floyd’s death were 1.5 and second-generation African immigrants (1.5 generation immigrants refer to those who came to America before they reached 12 years old; second-generation immigrants refer to those who were born in America).
Minneapolis, in fact, is home to a diverse population of racially Black individuals and a large fraction of them are African immigrants and refugees. We have the largest population of Somali immigrants, a vast number of Ethiopians, as well as immigrants from other African countries like Eritrea, Sudan, Liberia, and Nigeria. While African immigrant communities showed up in large numbers to protest police brutality and racial injustices, an oft-neglected nuance is the prevalence of anti-Blackness within these very communities.
The support for the Black Lives Matter movement from the African immigrant community demands that we address and correct the racist practices within our own community that are often left unquestioned.
For us to truly support the call for racial injustice, we must take the step eradicate anti-Blackness within our own communities.
Growing up in the Twin Cities, I have witnessed countless anti-Black sentiments, expressions, attitudes, and practices from close relatives and community members. Some examples include: looking down on marrying African-Americans, addressing and treating African-Americans and their communities by negative racialized stereotypes (i.e. lazy, not hardworking, criminals) and our perpetual disassociation with the African-American community in order to distinctly identify ourselves as African immigrants and not “Black/African-American.”
This identification process has been heavily documented and proved as a mechanism for us to distance ourselves from African-American communities for various reasons, including social stratification.
I didn’t want to post the whole thing, but there is more good stuff, so continue reading here.
Wouldn’t it be great if the politically incorrect Mr. Yousuf and the Sudanese “brother” he quotes made it to cable TV news. I can dream can’t I!
Well, they didn’t use those words exactly, but the Trump Administration says Minnesota must pay from its own coffers; federal taxpayers are not responsible for the mess politicians instigated and the riots they failed to control in Minneapolis.
Federal government denies Minnesota’s request for aid to clean up, rebuild in Twin Cities
The federal government has denied a request from the state of Minnesota for a disaster declaration and accompanying financial support, to help clean up and repair fire damage from unrest following the police killing of George Floyd.
Gov. Tim Walz’s office said it received the denial on Friday, eight days after Walz had submitted the request. A Federal Emergency Management Agency spokesperson said the agency had determined the damage was something local and state governments could handle on their own.
In a letter to President Trump on July 2, Walz had noted more than $15 million in damage and cleanup costs that could be eligible for federal reimbursement.
The state has estimated total damages at more than $500 million.
Hundreds of buildings were looted, damaged or destroyed by fires in the Twin Cities, primarily in Minneapolis and St. Paul, after Floyd was killed on May 25.
“The governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help Minnesota rebuild after civil unrest damaged public infrastructure and caused extensive fire damage in the wake of George Floyd’s death,” Walz’s spokesperson Teddy Tschann said in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.”
In making the request for help, Walz had noted that the financial challenge had been made even harder by the impacts on the state budget from the cononavirus pandemic. A projected $1.5 billion budget surplus in February was soon wiped out by a projected $2.4 billion revenue shortfall, he wrote to in the request to President Trump via FEMA.
In a statement provided to MPR News on Saturday, a FEMA spokesperson said:
“After a thorough review of Minnesota’s request for a major disaster declaration from extensive fire damage as a result of civil unrest in late May and early June, it was determined that the impact to public infrastructure is within the capabilities of the local and state governments to recover from. The governor has 30 days to appeal that decision.”
Rep. Emmer to Trump: Do not give Minnesota any money without a full investigation of how this level of destruction was allowed to occur.
The federal government’s denial of the request from Walz, a Democrat, came a day after Republican U.S. Rep Tom Emmer of Minnesota sent a letter to Trump and other federal officials raising questions about the request.
While not stating opposition to Minnesota receiving federal money, Emmer asked that — in the wake of Walz’s request — the Trump administration “undertake a thorough and concurrent review of my state’s response to the violence.”
Emmer wrote that if federal money helps pay for cleanup and rebuilding, the government “has an obligation to every American — prior to the release of funding — to fully understand the events which allowed for this level of destruction to occur and ensure it never happens again.”
How is this for timing!
Slightly changing the subject, there is a new book publishedon how immigrants turned Minneapolis, a dying WHITE city of the 1970s, into the wonderfully diverse and vibrant city it is today.
Catholic and Lutheran refugee resettlement agencies come in for praise for helping to save the city from a “death spiral.”
LOL! It was last year’s Minnesota Machete Man I had in mind! See here.
Move along, nothing to see!
Whoever this “man” is who brandished a machete and chased three children in Waite Park, MN on Thursday, he is 28 years old and no reason to withhold his name. He is not a minor in need of protection.
If anyone still wonders why we have no faith in the media, this is one reason why.
Immediately, and under the present circumstances not just in Minnesota and everywhere in America where racial tension is high, one becomes suspicious when incidents like this occur and we are not given the facts.
I assume if his name was Anderson or Johnson, the 28-year-old would have been named! I could be wrong, but nevertheless this is news for a blog like this (whoever he is!).
Man Accused Of Chasing Children With Machete In Waite Park
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 28-year-old Waite Park man is in jail accused of chasing children with a machete Thursday.
According to Waite Park police, officers were dispatched at 9:18 p.m. to the 200 block of 3rd Street South in Waite Park. They were responding to the report of a “male with a machete who had been chasing kids in the courtyard.”
While en route, officers were advised by dispatch that someone at the same address was reporting that someone pointed a gun at them.
After arriving on the scene, police determined that the suspect had been in the courtyard over the prior few days chopping at a tree with a machete. Police said he was chopping at the tree Thursday when, at some point, he stopped and began chasing three children who were playing nearby.
When one of the children advised a parent of the situation, they confronted the suspect. While the parent was speaking to the suspect, the suspect reached into his pocket, so the parent “became afraid and brandished a gun”, police said.
The suspect allegedly told police at the scene that the parent pointed a gun at his head. However, police said a gun was never pointed at him.
The suspect was then arrested for second-degree assault and taken to Stearns County Jail.
As soon as someone finds his name I will report—even if he is a machete-owning Anderson or Johnson! (LOL! He is an Olson! See update above!).
Endnote: Where are the environmentalists? For Pete’s sake, he was hacking at a tree for days after all!
