Update: More Charges in Ohio Illegal Slaughterhouse Case

I first told you about charges brought against Amin M. Salem, and Mohamed Salem his son here in January.

The case involves much more than the illegal halal slaughter of lambs and goats.  It stemmed from an investigation into a massive food stamp fraud scheme by the pair.
However, apparently there were accomplices in the slaughter ‘business’ that resulted in an investigation that included the EPA for dumping of animal wastes into nearby waterways.
Have a look at my earlier report and then see the latest news from Cleveland, Ohio.

Local Refugee Offices Closing as Trump Administration Keeps Refugee Numbers Low

Of course there isn’t much to cheer about as you know tens of thousands of migrants are streaming across our southern border, most claiming they are refugees seeking asylum.

Migrants streaming to America
Refugee admission numbers pale in comparison to the numbers coming across our border and claiming refugee status. 

 
The flow that has definitely slowed is the US Refugee Admissions Program refugees that are selected initially by the United Nations, followed by US State Department approval and resettlement by one of nine federal resettlement contractors who distribute them to most states. (One of many posts on the contractors at RRW is here.)
The work of the contractors is almost completely funded by you.
Office closures reported this week are the result of the federal slowdown in admissions (slowdown in money to the contractors) and because these resettlement offices could not find enough local financial support to keep their doors open, a fact that demonstrates one vital point:

There is not enough support by the public generally for refugee resettlement!

Before I get to the two office closures I heard about this week, one in Ohio, the other in Virginia, here is a bit of information about where we are at the 6-month-mark for FY19.
(Fiscal year 2019 runs from October 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019.)

Resettled Refugees Leaving Vermont to be with their Growing 'Community' in Ohio

Apparently the Bhutanese/Nepali refugees that the feds, along with one of nine federal contractors, placed in Vermont (to help diversify one of the whitest states in the nation) are moving west.

According to a report at Vermont Public Radio, the “new Americans” want to join others of their ethnic group in Columbus, Ohio.
Indeed, they, like many other large groups of refugees we have admitted, are building ethnic enclaves in an ever increasing balkanization of America.
Somalis have staked out Columbus, so what happens when two large ethnic groups are scrambling for housing and jobs? (The Bhutanese/Nepalis are not Muslims, btw.)
By the way, if you never saw my post welcoming you to this blog, to Frauds and Crooks, check it out now.  I started it after learning that the Progressives were working on yet another film about the joys of diversity—this time centered on Columbus, Ohio.
Before I get to the latest news, you should know that the George W. Bush State Department said in 2007 that the US would take 60,000 Bhutanese/Nepali refugees from the UN camps on the Nepal border (to help out the UN because we had no national interest or involvement in ethnic conflicts in that region).
Fast forward to today and data shows that we now have ‘welcomed’ over 96,000 so-called Bhutanese ‘refugees’ to your towns and cities.

Ohio University Student from Oman Indicted in Rape/Kidnapping Case

Diversity is beautiful alert!
This story is from December, but I’m writing about it for several reasons (thanks to reader Anne Marie for sending it).
First I see that the story never made it to any news outside the state of Ohio. Why is that? I have a good guess!
But, more interesting to me is that the story says he is scheduled for trial this month (February), but I can’t find another word about the case.

If someone has a few minutes to dig, help me find out if Mohammed Al-Mashrafi is scheduled for trial this month, was the case postponed, or did he post bail and skip the country?
 
From Dayton Daily News,

Ohio University student indicted in rape case

 

An Ohio University student was indicted on nine charges, including rape, kidnapping, gross sexual imposition and menacing by stalking.
Mohammed Al-Mashrafi was arrested earlier this month by Athens police.
Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn said Al-Mashrafi is accused of stalking multiple women in and around Athens, including by social media, our partners, CBS affiliate WBNS-TV in Columbus reported.
“Al-Mashrafi is further accused of vising (sic) a local spa where he was observed fondling himself and, upon being asked to leave, refused to pay for his services and ultimately left without paying. On Dec. 5, 2018, Al-Mashrafi’s behavior escalated and he is alleged to have held a female against her will and forcing himself on her sexually,” Blackburn said.
[….]
Blackburn said Al-Mashrafi, who had a bond set at $5 million, is in the United States on a student visa from Oman. A trial date is scheduled for February.

 
Search Mohammed Al-Mashrafi and see that stories about his indictment were pretty widespread in Ohio at the time.
Gee, I wonder if this guy will be in that diversity-is-beautiful propaganda film being made in Ohio, the one that inspired me to write this blog!

question markWhere is Mohammed now?  Help me find out!

Columbus, Ohio (again): Fishy Refugee Story Used to Bash Trump

Religion News Service has published a lengthy and whiney report on the status of the US Refugee Admissions Program under the Trump Administration.  It is a useful summary in some ways of where the refugee industry is these days.

Screenshot (863)
Daycare worker Khadra Abdo wants to bring her five grown children to the US!

But, don’t be fooled, all of the federal contractors are still in place and still being funded. They have simply hunkered down to wait Trump out.
The story (hat tip: Joanne) is an excuse to bash Trump, but is interesting as it begins with a refugee sob story (as they all do because the Left loves stories!), that raised some questions for me about how this Columbus, Ohio Somali woman got into the US in the first place.
And, one more thing!  Just because the word “religion” is in the name of this publication that doesn’t mean it is a religious publication!  It is a media source with a Leftist spin for news that might eventually appear in places like the Washington Post.
 

Two years after Trump’s travel ban, faith-based refugee groups struggle

 
“My first thought is that I hope they are safe today, and that stays on my mind throughout the whole day,” Abdo told Religion News Service through an interpreter provided by Church World Service.
The 40-year-old Muslim mother of seven was separated from her five oldest children from a first marriage nearly 12 years ago when she and her second husband fled civil war twice — first in Somalia, then in Libya. When they arrived in Columbus, Ohio, as asylum seekers in 2012, she filed a request for her four teenaged daughters and one son, living with her 75-year-old mother in Ethiopia, to join her through World Relief.
Seven years later, she is still waiting. And the World Relief office that once helped her has been closed.
That closure in 2017 was a “direct result” of President Trump’s executive order to cut the number of refugees resettled that year in the United States, World Relief said at the time.

Do these young reporters have no curiosity?  Here is what I want to know:
First, why did she have to leave her children behind in Ethiopia? And now nearly grown up, aren’t they safe in Ethiopia?  Wouldn’t Abdo be safe in Ethiopia with grandma and the five kids.
If she came to the US as an asylum seeker, that means she actually got in to the US with her present hubby (or at least we presume hubby is with her) and was not screened and admitted as a regular refugee.  Did she come across our southern or northern border?
Did she go through the asylum system and was she granted refugee status?
And, heck, why would you try to run to Libya in the first place?  Were they planning to break into Europe across the Mediterranean?
We have been told she has been here seven years, but still needs an interpreter?
Religion News continues…

Abdo now is pursuing her case through Community Refugee and Immigration Services, Church World Service’s refugee and immigration office in Columbus.
She talks “constantly” on the phone with her children in Ethiopia, she said through an interpreter. She works at a daycare and cares for her two youngest children, one born at a refugee camp in Libya and the other in the United States.
But, she said, “It is very hard and very difficult for a mother to be separated from her kids every day.” [What the hell, she left her kids behind 12 years ago!—ed]
In the meantime, Abdo is studying for her U.S. citizenship exam, which she hopes to pass this month.

This month! She can’t even speak English!
Religion News might have chosen a better star for their story!
See my earlier post today about a Columbus fraudster (from Abdo’s ‘community?) going to jail!

question markI’ve been tagging posts by the state where the fraud, crime, whatever, happened.  I’m thinking Ohio might be taking the prize so far!  What is up with Ohio?
