New York State Luring Refugees to Populate Dying Cities

I think some of you in refugee overloaded states might like this news!

town-that-loves-refugees
The Big Lie: In 2005 the UN said Utica was being saved by refugees. Still trying to save the place nearly 15 years later?

And, native New Yorkers might see this as a great time to pack up and head south for lower taxes and more pleasant weather (many have already!).

The State of New York is actively luring refugees from other states and officials there claim cities are dying and they need low wage workers (and more ethnic groceries and craft shops!) to stop the slow bleed from their decrepit cities.

And, who is going to pay for all of the ‘services’ New York state is offering refugees to move there (called secondary migration in the refugee industry).

No one has ever given me a good argument for why certain struggling cities can’t just be left to die!

Check out one of my many posts at RRW on New York’s dying cities, like Utica.

Yemeni Man gets Prison Time for Extortion Plot Involving a Child Bride

This story has been in my queue for a couple of weeks and am finally getting to it.

Yemenis protest Trump in NYC
Yemeni “community” protests Trump in NY. Just leave them in Yemen!

What is so galling about the news is that our law enforcement has spent time and (our) money to investigate a crime and now incarcerate a man for something that has nothing to do with us.

 

We apparently ‘welcomed’ a Yemeni family to live in the Buffalo, NY area who brought all of their cultural/religious baggage to America (and even went ‘home’ for awhile) and we get to straighten out the mess the ‘new Americans’ created.

By the way, Yemen is one of the countries now on Trump’s so-called Muslim ban list!

Rochester Mayor Responds to Trump Suggestion that Border Jumpers be Sent to Sanctuary Cities

But we don’t have the housing and the resources to care for them, Mayor Lovely Warren said earlier this week!

Exactly!

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren:  We are welcoming, but we don’t have enough housing and basic necessities!

 

And, she thinks America does (in some other city)?

The other day I mentioned an idea that apparently is being kicked around in the more-immigration-is-better crowd and that is to turn the asylum seekers (aka illegal aliens) over to refugee resettlement agencies for care.

But, of course, the kicker is that those phony-baloney non-profits are all living off the US taxpayer to begin with. 

But what the heck, at least it isn’t the Rochester citizens carrying the burden, right Mayor Warren?

Utica, NY: Mugshots of those Arrested Will No Longer be Published

Regular readers know that I joke here about how little information is available when immigrants (aka new Americans) are arrested for a crime.  Rarely do we learn the nationality or immigration status of the perp.

Gov. Cuomo And Hillary Clinton Make Announcement On Reproductive Justice In NY
NY Governor Andrew Cuomo: Mugshots are an “unwanted invasion of personal privacy.”

Ann Coulter has said you need a “secret decoder ring” to figure out the bare minimum when a ‘new American’ is involved in criminal activity, but sometimes the mugshot is helpful.

Unfortunately, in Utica, NY and probably all of the state of New York, those arrested are entitled to privacy say Democrat political leaders.  And, we will have even less information!

By the way, longtime readers of my other blog, Refugee Resettlement Watch, will recognize Utica as it was an oft mentioned important resettlement city. The UN even featured it as the city that loves refugees.  Go here for many stories about Utica.

New Twist on Food Stamp Fraud: Redeem your Benefits at a Nail Salon

One thing is for sure—new American entrepreneurs are clever, so clever that I am sure many are escaping unnoticed in every immigrant community in America.

food stamp fraud
But there is no food at a nail salon!

This is a story from Rochester, NY where an Asian owner of a nail salon was able to set up a scam that allowed his customers to use their food stamps (our money!) to get their nails done.

Is this what the cabal behind the New American Economy is talking about when they proudly proclaim that immigrant-run businesses are propping up dying cities?

I have maintained for years that money might be flowing into dying cities when immigrants (aka NEW Americans) arrive largely because the money comes via Washington and federal programs set up to benefit the poor, but it isn’t new money!  It is money from federal tax payers recycled to places like Utica, Buffalo or, as in this case, Rochester, NY.

New York: Malaysian Born, Harvard-Educated Cardiologist Charged in Horrific Torture Case

This story about an immigrant doctor, Vignendra Ariyarajah, is going to make you sick.

I don’t know why it isn’t all over cable news this morning! (Is it reluctance to show another ‘new American’ in a bad light?)

Dr. Vignendra Ariyarajah

Indeed, there is very little coverage of the case of the doctor now wearing an ankle monitor in the media generally.

It seems that the New York Post got the scoop and in its usual swift and sensational fashion, the UK Daily Mail published the story yesterday replete with many photos of the alleged mastermind of a gruesome kidnapping case that resulted in the death of a new born baby.

And, with a photo of the good doctor with then Veep Joe Biden!

Cab Company Owner Pleads Guilty to Stealing from Medicaid, Other New Americans Made Him Do it!

According to the US Department of Justice:

Arshad Nazir, age 54, of Ticonderoga, New York, pled guilty to conspiring to defraud Medicaid, and conspiring to pay bribes and kickbacks to Medicaid beneficiaries who used his medical transportation service. He admitted to causing at least $550,000 in losses, and to paying at least $95,000 in bribes and kickbacks.

medicaid fraudNazir’s lawyers say other cab companies run by other ‘new Americans’ made him do it in order to stay competitive (I kid you not!).

Here is a recitation of the charges against him from the local The Post-Star, including a mention of the defense that he previously was a good guy before he was a bad guy!

 

Cab Company Owner Pleads Guilty in Ticonderoga Case

 

He admitted to causing at least $550,000 in Medicaid program losses through false filings, and to paying at least $95,000 in bribes and kickbacks. In all, his company received $2.45 million in Medicaid payments between 2014 and 2018, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

no-phot-avail
Nazir, whose company was known as Avalanche Taxi Co., faces up to 10 years in federal prison when sentenced June 18 by U.S. District Judge Thomas McAvoy. He also will be required to make $550,000 restitution.

[….]

According to prosecutors, Nazir admitted that he committed a variety of fraudulent acts involving Medicaid and the state Department of Health, including:

Billing Medicaid and receiving payment for trips where beneficiaries drove themselves to their own medical appointments

Falsifying the identities of the drivers for those trips.

Billing Medicaid and receiving payment for round trips to and from medical appointments when the beneficiaries took only one-way trips with Avalanche Taxi.

Falsifying pick-up and drop-off locations in order to increase the purported distances traveled and therefore be able to claim and receive higher Medicaid payments.

Nazir also admitted that he agreed to pay kickbacks and bribes to Medicaid beneficiaries in order to get the beneficiaries to schedule and keep scheduling medical transportation appointments with Avalanche Taxi. Those kickbacks included cash, cigarettes and tobacco, and free goods at Nazir’s convenience store in Ticonderoga.

His lawyer, Kevin O’Brien, said Nazir ran a legitimate taxi business for years, but when others moved into town and used fraudulent practices to take his business, he followed.

Now have a look at the names of some of the other cab company owners who apparently “moved into town” to compete with Nazir in the Medicaid transport business!

Charges are still pending against others who were involved in the scheme, including four other Ticonderoga cab company owners, Qaiser “Kaz” Gondal, 46; Khalid M. Chadder, 49; Waqas Nauman, 37; and Khurram Gondal, 39.

More here.

And, don’t miss this!

An earlier US Dept. of Justice press release lists more names of ‘new American’ entrepreneurs investigated in Ticonderoga and neighboring towns in welcoming New York!

No time for the ‘Secret Decoder Ring’ investigation today, but if anyone knows where Mr. Nazir is from and what his immigration status is, let me know!
