As I mentioned last month, the Kenyan government wants the United Nations to close the massive camp—Dadaab—soon!
The UN is between a rock and a hard place after trying and failing to get large numbers of Somalis to go home to an increasingly stable country (well, stable for Somalia!), while Europe and the US have wearied of moving Somalis to the West.
As you know President Trump has nearly stopped the resettlement of Somalis to your towns and cities (a few are still trickling in!).
If Trump is no longer in office come January 2021, you know a future Democrat President will open the Somali spigot wide to make up for the ‘Trump lost years.’
And, an even bigger shock is that NBCis featuring this lengthy investigation into charges of corruption, fraud and bribery in the agency that selects refugees for your American towns and cities.
Featured in what is billed as a first installment of a seven-month-long investigation is Africa and specifically Somali resettlement from the huge camp, Dadaab, run by the UNHCR, that I mentioned in a post here recently.
It is a huge story both in impact and in its length, so I’ve snipped a bit here for you to get the gist of it.
Money, and lots of money, helps ‘refugees’ move to the head of the line and in this opening segment we learn that a likely crook is living in Minnesota (I know don’t laugh!).
That would be Dadaab—home to hundreds of thousands of Somalis and a place where the US government has gone to select Somalis to bring to America.
Although, under President Trump very few Somalis are getting into the US these days, this is a story worth watching because you know that the United Nations will be pressuring our State Department to up the Somali numbers using the closing of a significant camp as the excuse.
If Trump doesn’t win reelection in 2020 the trickle could be a flood from Dadaab to your town.
The Kenyan government has long maintained that the camp is a breeding ground for Islamic extremists and it points to recent terror attacks in Kenya linked to Dadaab residents.
I’ve only said this about a million times (exaggerating of course!): To be a legitimate refugee one must claim that he or she would be persecuted for one of several reasons if the refugee claimant should return (or be forced to return) to his or her home country.
The wannabe refugee makes that claim and is then processed by the UN which arranges resettlement to a third country!
Imagine my surprise to see this news that gives me the rare opportunity to praise the United Nations!
Did you know that February 6th was the ninth annual United Nations day of zero tolerance for the vile practice of female genital mutilation (sometimes referred to as cutting) perpetrated on girls and women worldwide, including in the US?
ICE and the Department of Justice released a press statementrecognizing the day. Of course the UN wrote about it, as did NPR, but I was surprised the day passed otherwise unnoticed by the mainstream US media.
When diversity is ugly!
ICE, DOJ recognize International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting
WASHINGTON, D.C. — February 6 marks the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the FBI, and the Human Rights and Special Prosecutions Section (HRSP) of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, all members of the Human Rights Violators and War Crimes Center (HRVWCC), join U.S. and foreign government partners, non-governmental organizations, and local communities to call for the eradication of the practice.
Female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) is a federal crime, and any involvement in committing this crime is a serious human rights violation which may result in imprisonment and potential removal from the United States.Individuals suspected of FGM/C, including sending girls overseas to be cut, may be investigated by the HRVWCC and prosecuted accordingly.
The elimination of FGM/C has broad implications for the health and human rights of women and girls, as well as societies at large. This day serves as an opportunity to reflect on victims who have suffered from female genital mutilation/cutting, including many women and girls who have died or suffered lifelong health complications from the practice. The day also renews a global commitment to the health and well-being of all women, girls and communities by eliminating the practice.
“The FBI is committed to investigating human rights violations, including female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM),” said unit chief Maureen Schutz of the FBI’s Criminal Division. “We continue to work with our partners at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to protect the rights of young women and children and to bring justice to those who have violated them.”
FGM/C prevalence is primarily concentrated in 30 countries in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, but also occurs in parts of Western Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand. It is global in scope and found in multiple geographies, religions, and socioeconomic classes. [The practice has been associated with certain ethnic groups from especially Africa, Somali being one such country.—ed]
Anyone who has information about an individual who is suspected of assisting in this crime is urged to call the toll-free ICE tip line at (866) 347-2423 or complete the ICE online tip form or the FBI online tip form. All are staffed around the clock, and tips may be provided anonymously.
You don’t see enough coverage of stories like this because I believe that the Lefties running most of our media simply can’t bring themselves to recognize that diversity is not always beautiful and can often bring practices that are violent and culturally abhorrent to the West.
They want us to focus on images like African refugee children frolicking in their first snow as one social media video that went viral recently promoted.
Are you in an ethnic community in the US where you hear some whispering about FGM? If so use the tip line and let the feds investigate.
And, mark your calendar for next year and send an op-ed to your local paper as the day approaches!
