In the wake of the Supreme Court decision on the so-called ‘travel ban’ which does target some Somali refugees, there is much wailing and moaning going on in places like Minnesota as we see here at the Star Tribune.
See this story at the Star Tribune as Somalis complain that their families are still stuck in camps:
News of the Supreme Court’s ruling that allows enforcement of President Trump’s travel ban sent Minneapolis resident Mohamed Abdirisaq rushing to seek counsel at the local Women Child Safe Center. For him and his loved ones, the decision’s implications are immediate and personal.
Abdirisaq’s wife and three children, who live in Kenya, await resettlement in the Twin Cities.
“I’m heartbroken,” Abdirisaq said. “This decision denies my right to reunite with my family.”
His “right” to reunite! And, by the way, why did he leave his family behind in the first place?
Ayan Isse, executive director of Women Child Safe Center, said “my clients are worried to death. I don’t know how to calm their nerves. Their families are still stuck in the refugee camps and some have even been deported back to Somalia recently. Our country is still not peaceful.”
It is not America’s problem that the Somalis cannot govern themselves!
And, frankly I believe there are Muslim countries in the world—can you say rich Gulf states––that, if they had the will, could invest in Somalia and repatriate the people. But, they don’t because (in my opinion) they know that the Somalis serve a useful purpose as the advance guard—Islam’s foot soldiers—to be sent out across the world.
You know it’s time to show you the numbers I’ve compiled over the years for the Somali refugees we taxpayers have funded to move to America. These are only the Somalis we admitted through the US Refugee Admissions Program. They do not include: temporary protected status entrants, Visa lottery winners, successful asylum seekers or the large numbers of Somalis who are roaming America after getting across our borders undetected.
Will it ever end?
From a report I first posted here:
2002: 242 (Guesses why this is so low? 9/11 freaked everyone out!)
Here GW Bush picks it up to make up for lost time!
2009: 4,189 (on the rise again even though family reunification is suspended still!)
2016: (Wrapsnet is down at the moment)
Total is over 130,000
