It is all over the news today and I plan to write about it at Refugee Resettlement Watchshortly. But, here is just one of many stories on the ban expected to be announced on Monday, this one at the New York Post.
The Trump Administration must have credible concerns about criminals and possibly terrorists entering the US from the new countries being proposed.
Coincidentally I just saw this Youtube video (h/t: Bob), below, and ask you to make sure your friends and family members know what is already happening to America as we move the African continent to your home towns.
No, this is not somewhere else in the world—This is Minnesota!
***Update*** Here is my new post at RRWabout the possible new travel restriction list.
That is the issue raised by Daniel Horowitz atConservative Reviewyesterday, thanks to reader Stephen for bringing it to my attention.
Horowitz raises a troubling subject that surely you have become aware of, and if not, you should pay attention now!
Headlined, “Importing both sides of Middle East gang wars into OUR communities,” Horowitz features Somali gangs in Minneapolis.
(Somalis are from Africa, but we won’t quibble over geography especially as we are also bringing all of the Islamic fighting factions of the ME here as well! I’m digressing but where is the wisdom in bringing Iraqi Sunnis and Iraqi Shiites, which have been killing each other for centuries, and placing them in the same US cities?)
And, consider that mass migration isn’t just adding violence to OUR neighborhoods, but every one of these crimes costs us enormous amounts of money for law enforcement, lawyers, courts, interpreters and incarcerations of the ‘new American’ criminals.
Here is just a bit of the post, read it allfor more information and to follow links:
“Prosecutors have charged a teenager in the shooting death of 25-year-old Mustafa Ali last week, in the latest sign that an ongoing conflict between rival East African gangs is spilling into north Minneapolis.”
Those are the words of a Star Tribune article from last week describing the latest gang-on-gang attacks within the Somali community in Minneapolis. Unfortunately, gang-on-gang violence is not exactly a newsworthy story in America, but what should concern us is that we are importing both sides of pre-existing gang wars from half way around the world.All those who are promoting mass migration and refugee resettlement from every war-torn Middle Eastern country don’t want you to study what has already happened in our own communities as a result of their policies.
In the case of the aforementioned homicide of Mustafa Ali, it’s believed to have stemmed from a fight between the “Somali Outlaws” and “1627 Boys” gangs. Unfortunately, this is nothing new for the Minneapolis area, at least not since it became Little Mogadishu beginning in the 1990s.
We’ve brought in roughly 130,000 Somalis since 1993, most of them through the refugee program. At least 30,000 initially settled in the Minneapolis area, and their population is now close to 74,000. They have turned out to be one of the most problematic immigration groups we’ve admitted in recent years, with the local U.S. attorney and a federal judge observing a pervasive terror recruiting problem in the greater Minneapolis area with “its tentacles spread out.”
Americans wake up every day thankful not to live in other countries that are plagued by violence and poverty. Unfortunately, over time, thanks to irresponsible mass migration, the vices of those countries are brought in to live in their own neighborhoods without their say in the matter.
I could just as well have posted this news at Refugee Resettlement Watchbecause the vast majority of Somalis in the US came as ‘refugees’ thanks to the UN, the US State Department and its resettlement contractors, but RRW hasn’t recovered its readership since the speech police removed itfrom the internet this summer, so I figured more of you would see it here at ‘Frauds and Crooks.’
Pleasecheck RRWevery day because, refusing to be censored and not to be intimidated, I am writing there on most days!
By the way, we do thank the President for trying to give local people a say in the refugee resettlement process, but we must be honest and tell readers that the recent Executive Order mentioned by Trump at a rally in Minnesota, won’t do that.
I was informed by the News Editor of the St. Cloud Times that I was not permitted to use their story in which they list the names of some of the students involved in the brawl that brought reportedly 20 police officers to the school.
See my updated post from Saturday by clicking here. And, then visit the St. Cloud Timesstory directly, here.
I do have sympathy for small city newspapers that are struggling. They need all the readers they can get and this story is of vital importance, so don’t miss it!
Update! I have been warned by Lisa Schwarz, News Director of the St. Cloud Times that I am not permitted to use their news story.
So to honor her request and to “avoid further action,” I am removing the text I snipped from their story about the students involved in the recent Tech High riot.
Please visit the St. Cloud Times directly! (Link below)
(My original post begins here.)
Whew! That is a relief! At least now there won’t be any reason for race hustlers like CAIR to get involved, right!
“Students of the same race.” That is how police characterize the make-up of the gangs of fighting students wereported here on Thursday. But thanks to a Minnesota law which allows names of those who committed felonies, who are aged 16 and 17, be made public, we now have a clearer idea of who exactly was involved in a brawl that brought 20 police officers to a school in a city that has seen years of tension created by the arrival of Somali refugee families.
No secret decoder ring needed—names tell us all we need to know!

Amazon workers in Minnesota walk out in protest over part-time work
A day after The Verge reported on Sacramento Amazon workers protesting Amazon’s strict time-off rules, more than 60 Amazon workers in similar roles in an Eagan, Minnesota, warehouse walked off the job.During the two-and-a-half-hour protest, workers demanded the lifting of the 30-hour-per-week cap, a more respectful work environment, and a less strenuous workload.
The Sacramento and Eagan employees work in Amazon delivery stations, which are smaller warehouses that sort packages for delivery routes. Delivery stations are staffed almost entirely by part-time employees who receive no medical insurance and can be fired for taking more than 20 hours off without pay per quarter.
“We are not allowed to work more than 30 hours per week, even though there’s more work,” said a worker in a video of the walkout posted by Workday Minnesota. Amazon would be required to offer employees who work more than 30 hours a week medical insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The worker went on to say that they must lift heavy boxes and take time off without pay if they get injured. “We have no value here, they treat us like we are not human.” [Golly! Was Obamacare just a way to let the big guys like Amazon avoid paying medical insurance?—ed]
Nimo Omar, an organizer with the Awood Center, a nonprofit focused on East African workers that has been active in organizing Minnesota Amazon employees, attended last night’s walkout. Omar said the workers demanded a more respectful work environment and complained of heavy workloads and close monitoring, including managers knocking on the door if they spent more than several minutes in the bathroom.Like the Sacramento workers, they also felt Amazon’s unpaid time-off policy was inflexible and demanded the option to work more than 30 hours a week.
The Eagan delivery center and nearby fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota, have emerged as hotbeds of worker activism within Amazon’s distribution system.Many of the workers are Muslim immigrants from Somalia and elsewhere in East Africa, and in the summer of 2018, they began protesting that the pace of work and time-off system made it difficult to observe Ramadan. Amazon met with the organizers, but workers say the company didn’t address their concerns. They staged a strike during Prime Day this year over the increasing pace of work and other issues.
Before the Eagan workers walked out, the Awood Center posted a message to Facebook saying workers in Minnesota were dealing with the same issues as those in Sacramento.
Shortly after 9PM, more than 60 workers walked off the job. According to the Awood Center, the employees agreed to return to work two and a half hours later when the manager on site agreed to talk to his boss about their demands.
The Awood Center said in a Facebook post that all truck deliveries for the night were canceled due to the backlog created by the walkout.
Will Amazon eventually cave to demands? We will be watching!
Just so you know, most Somalis in the US today are here through the US Refugee Admissions Program and federally-funded refugee resettlement contractors like the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service placed them in Minnesota
.I’m so glad to have RRW back! Here is a post I wrote in 2011explaining how Minneapolis became Little Mogadishu.
