Trial opens in case of another Uzbek refugee charged with plotting terror in his home country

We remember when Jamshid Muhtorov was arrested attempting to leave the country in 2012 and I have wondered what the heck was going on that his case was not going to trial.

Jamshid-Muhtorov--30291984_3085_ver1.0_320_240

Why didn’t we just let him leave? Why was protecting the Uzbek government our problem?  Indeed, why was he here in the first place?

Before reading on, you might want to revisit another notorious case of an Uzbek refugee sentenced to prison in Idaho who subsequently tried to kill the prison warden where he had been incarcerated, see here.

Now to the story from Denver about Jamshid Muhtorov where we learn the trial delay was due to his lawyer’s efforts to challenge the use of information from NSA surveillance:

Trial underway for refugee who challenged NSA surveillance

DENVER – A refugee from Uzbekistan conspired to support a terrorist group financially and planned to travel overseas to join them, U.S. prosecutors said Thursday, walking jurors through a trove of phone calls, emails and other online activity they said proves the man’s desire to help the group.

The start of Jamshid Muhtorov’s trial comes more than six years after his arrest at a Chicago airport. The case led to the U.S. Justice Department’s first disclosure that it intended to use information obtained through one of the National Security Agency’s warrantless surveillance programs.

Muhtorov challenged the constitutionality of the warrantless surveillance program but Judge John Kane ruled in 2015 that the program may have potential for abuse but did not violate his rights.

Muhtorov’s attorney said during opening statements that the former human rights worker did email with people who claimed to belong to the Islamic Jihad Union, but said he was play-acting as a distraction from a sometimes difficult transition to America and never sent the organization money or intended to join them.

Prosecutor Greg Holloway peppered his opening statement with references to recordings of Muhtorov’s phone calls and emails, telling jurors that they would hear of Muhtorov’s desire to help the terror group and become a martyr in “the defendant’s own words.”

One of MANY unhappy refugees in America!

After coming to the Denver area in 2007 through a refugee resettlement program, prosecutors said he became “frustrated with life” and began emailing with the terror group through its website. By 2012, he told an FBI informant of plans to join the group and become a fighter, Holloway said.

[….]

Muhtorov was arrested while waiting to board a flight to Istanbul, and Holloway said agents found $2,800 in cash, two new iPhones and a new iPad in his luggage. In a recorded phone call days before the flight, Holloway said Muhtorov asked his daughter to “pray for your daddy to become a martyr.”

Muhtorov did feel discouraged at times by life in the U.S., said his attorney, Kathryn Stimson. He worked at a processing plant [meatpacking we presume!—ed], a casino and then as a truck driver after being a human rights worker in Uzbekistan.

[….]

He also believed that the Islamic Jihad Union’s priority was deposing the dictator leading Uzbekistan, she said. Conversations about joining or somehow helping the group were a fantasy, a way to feel like the respected human rights workers he once was, she said.

Using refugee resettlement for unrelated foreign policy objectives is wrong!

There was always something very fishy about the Uzbek stream of refugees coming to the US—-could our State Department and CIA be helping the ruling ‘moderate’ Muslim Uzbek government by removing their troublemakers to America and placing them in your unsuspecting neighborhoods?

Many of these Uzbeks, like Muhtorov, didn’t seem to want to be here! So, again, why were they brought here??? And, what did we get out of the deal for our trouble?

I discussed the issue of using refugees as pawns for other foreign policy objectives here earlier this month.

Fox News continues…..

So other refugees from Uzbekistan were committing crimes? But, this one gets off free?

They then turned to another man from Uzbekistan, who she said became an informant to avoid charges of tax fraud, marriage fraud and immigration fraud. The unnamed informant developed a relationship with Muhtorov, passing information to federal authorities about Muhotorov’s claims that he was taking on a role in the terror group.

Much more here.

Trump nominates Ronald Mortensen to head State Department refugee program

Who is Ronald Mortensen?

I had never heard of him, but CNN and other outlets call him an immigration hardliner, a “fellow” at the Center for Immigration Studies.

Screenshot (1298)

Clearly a Trump supporter in Romney country, Mortensen said in August of 2016 that Trump is our only hope against corrupt elites.   http://archive.sltrib.com/article.php?id=4276026&itype=CMSID

Doing a quick scan of the Utah native’s writing at CIS, we see that he has mostly written about DACA and illegal alien issues, so his experience with the refugee program is apparently limited.

The most recent op-ed I found from him is from 6 months ago at The Hill about how to structure an amnesty for the DACA ‘children’ entitled:

Want to pass the DREAM Act? Let’s combine mercy with justice

Hmmmm?

As a retired Foreign Service officer, he surely has a good feel for the countries and cultures that feed in to the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program, and if approved by the Senate (a very long shot!), he might be able to find some experienced people to surround himself with who know where the problems are with the USRAP.

Here is one story from Deseret News:

Trump nominates Utahn to be an assistant secretary of state

 

SALT LAKE CITY — Utahn Ronald Mortensen was nominated by President Donald Trump Thursday to serve as assistant secretary of state for population, refugees and migration.

If his nomination is approved by the U.S. Senate, Mortensen, a retired Foreign Service officer with the U.S. State Department, would head the U.S. State Department Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration.

The bureau’s mission “is to provide protection, ease suffering, and resolve the plight of persecuted and uprooted people around the world on behalf of the American people,” according to its website.

Mortensen has lobbied the Utah Legislature on identity theft and other issues and supported Trump in 2016. He is a fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, a nonpartisan organization that bills itself as “low immigration, pro-immigrant.”

He has been described as continuing to respond to humanitarian crises around the world, including in Mali and Iraq after being recognized by the State Department for his courage during a civil war in Chad.

Mortensen, a veteran who holds a doctorate degree, was on the White House advance team for the 1986 summit between President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in Iceland that helped lead to an end to the Cold War.

As time goes on, we will hear more about Mortensen.  You can be sure that the Refugee Council USA (the lobbying arm of the refugee industry) will soon weigh in.  (I haven’t seen anything from them yet.)

Readers may not know that the last Republican (under GW Bush) to hold this position, Ellen Sauerbrey, only got it through a recess appointment. Trump may have to go that route if he wants to fight for Mortensen.

And, then of course, if he is confirmed, the big question will be: Is he the man to push serious reform of the entire program, or simply a place holder?

At present, the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration is headed by a Stephen Miller acolyte, Andrew Veprek, as deputy assistant secretary—an assignment that has the refugee industry in high dudgeon. 

Get out the popcorn, this should be a good show!

See what I mean! The wailing for workers is the latest PR push for refugee industry; Virginia this time!

On the heels of my post yesterday, here is the first of what surely will be many stories about how refugee workers are needed for meatpackers and hotel chains—this time in Virginia.

Chobani and Soros

The economic study being cited is from the Tent Foundation a creation of Hamdi Ulukaya (Mr. Chobani Yogurt) shown here with the great promoter of cheap immigrant labor and a borderless world, George Soros.

I guess they realized the ‘humanitarian’ shtick was no longer effective, they have come right out and admitted what this is all about—workers willing to work cheap.

Here (below) is the whole flimsy Virginia Public Radio bit.

Expect to hear more of this line that by the time they are here for 20 years, refugees give back to the economy, but never any mention about how much these low wage workers with 6 children consume via welfare, schooling, medical care, housing etc. for those first 20 years!

And, it won’t be lost on our Minnesota readers who have been told time and again that the numbers are not available for what it costs the state to take care of its refugee population.

If no numbers are available, how can this Public Radio reporter say this?  Because he is mindlessly parroting the globalist Tent Foundation.

 

 

A Look at the Impact of Refugee Placements on Virginia’s Economy

The number of refugee placements has declined dramatically since President Trump took office. And, that has an impact on economies across Virginia.

From 2008 to 2016, the number of new refugee placements in Virginia was somewhere between 1,200 to 1,600 a year. But then last year, as a result of a new federal policy limiting refugee placements, that was slashed in half. This year, the number of new refugee placements is on track to be less than 300.

That’s according to Chad Stewart at the Commonwealth Institute who says refugees play an important role in the economy.

Readers remember that all of the 1,200-1,600 are not workers. Included in that number are large numbers of children, people with health issues who cannot work, and the elderly, all needing public services of some sort. (Yes, we bring senior citizen refugees to the US and they receive SSI!)

“On average, they pay far more taxes over a 20 year period than they receive back in benefits. This also means that if we continue to see the number of refugees we place in Virginia decline, we can expect to see an adverse impact on our state revenues over time.”

Here comes the Chamber of Commerce! Money! Money! Money!

tamberrino-frank

Frank Tamberrino: We need low wage workers in Virginia (they also buy stuff like used cars)!

The highest concentration of refugees in Virginia is Harrisonburg, where Frank Tamberrino at the local chamber of commerce says that’s partly because of all the academic institutions and religious organizations there. Plus…

“This also is an area that is designated as a refugee resettlement area, so we’ve got an organization here the Church World Service that handles a lot of refugee resettlements.”

This week, a new study from the Fiscal Policy Institute and the Tent Foundation concluded that refugees have greater retention rates in hard-to-staff jobs, things like meat packing and hotel accommodations. As a result, they save employers on retraining. But those benefits are slipping away as the number of refugee placements continues to draw down.

If some independent bright minds are working on real economic studies on the true cost of the US Refugee Admissions Program, don’t leave out the millions (billions?) in remissions that leave the country as the refugees send money ‘home.’

The cost of the criminal justice system needs to be factored in too!  Some murder trials and terror trials must be costing us a bundle, not to mention incarcerations for life. In fact, I wonder what the trial of the refugees who planned to kidnap prominent women in Roanoke in 2009 cost the taxpayers of Virginia!

Church World Service*** is the federal contractor that was quietly placing refugees in the Maryland county where I live in 2007.

As I mentioned on many previous occasions they are directly responsible for the birth of RRW.

 

*** These are the nine federal contractors that have monopolized refugee resettlement in the US, some for decades!  They are the handmaidens of global corporations like Chobani Yogurt, JBS Swift, Tyson Foods, Marriot Hotels, etc….

The number in parenthesis is the percentage of their income paid by you (the taxpayer) to place the refugees and get them signed up for their services (aka welfare)!  From most recent accounting, here.

If you are wondering, I post this list every chance I get because we have new readers daily and because I want all of you to know that for reform to be possible these nine fake non-profits have to go.

Comment worth noting is an example of what you can do for your state and country

From time to time, I post what I call “comments worth noting” that have been sent to me or in this case published on social media.

This (below) is a facebook entry from Peggy Traeger Tierney in Minnesota.

Readers ask me all the time, what can I do?  Well, this is a prime example.

Help educate your fellow citizens with a little investigative work of your own and then find a way to get it out more broadly—through facebook as Peggy has done, through twitter, via a letter to the editor, or consider writing your own blog (goodness knows we need more citizen journalists!).

In Minnesota we were told by the bright minds in the legislature that they couldn’t figure out what the refugee population there is costing the taxpayers, well here is one piece of the answer.

More recently the outrageous revelation that massive fraud had been uncovered with Somali-run publicly-supported daycare centers has Minnesotans again demanding an accounting.

You too can do this!

Global corporations want refugee workers, then cut the BS about humanitarianism

Let’s have the debate, but cut the crap about the US Refugee Admissions Program being about saving the poor and destitute of the world, and stop denigrating any of us who don’t agree with the premise that refugee workers are vital to giant corporations.

Miliband in Manhattan

Charity my foot! Moneybags Miliband pulls down a salary of over $600,000 annually so if the IRC wanted to keep its office open in Tyson Foods-run Garden City, Kansas they could! Another boo-hoo story on a Trump-shuttered resettlement office.  https://www.csmonitor.com/USA/2018/0522/With-fewer-incoming-refugees-US-resettlement-centers-dwindle

If you have followed RRW for the last ten years you know that basic principles have emerged about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program:

~A driving force behind more refugees coming to your towns and cities is the desire by BIG MEAT, the hospitality industry, and other manufacturing companies to hire trapped refugee laborers (trapped because they have no where else to go!).

~It is maddening that the UN and the US State Department are busy (on our dime!) to supply those laborers to big business.

~You have learned that the so-called Voluntary Agencies (VOLAGs), some calling themselves “religious” charities,*** are paid by the US taxpayer to take care of the incoming work force for a few months.

~The refugee labor force (salaries are low!) is eligible for a cornucopia of public services (aka welfare) to supplement the meager wages for families that sometimes include six children.  What a business model: cheap wages & welfare supplementation!

~You have surely seen the refugee industry (corporations and federal contractors) attempt to paint their mission as one of love for humanity and anyone who questions that love is mean-spirited.

~You have also learned that if you show concern for the cultural disruption of your town or city, or want to know what it all is costing you, you are a bigot. Just two days ago I posted about how Tyson Foods is transforming Garden City, Kansas.

~And, not to be forgotten, in addition to global corporations pushing for more refugee laborers, are the Dems looking for reliable voters who want the welfare gravy train to continue (Cloward & Piven).

~Finally, you have seen that Congress is not doing a thing to reform the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program, why?

Republicans: Money! Money! Money! Dems: Voters! Voters! Voters!

Why am I summarizing this today?

 

Because I am seeing a spate of stories about how, as the Trump admission numbers decline, big business is now out of the closet promoting the desirability of a refugee labor workforce for themselves, and I repeat:

If we want to have that discussion then let’s have it, but cut the crap about humanitarianism and more importantly stop the usual Leftist tactic of attacking those of us who do not share the globalists’ world view.

First up today is this news from Neil Munro at Breitbart about how Jeff Bezos (Amazon and the Washington Post) (hat tip: Richard). The story is from March, but I am just seeing it now:

Jeff Bezos’ WashPost Endorses Meatpackers’ Cheap-Labor Immigration Strategy

That story discusses JBS Swifts desire for cheap refugee labor. Longtime readers may remember that JBS (a Brazilian owned company) contracted with Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service to help them acquire and retain refugee workers.

Then I see that Forbes is pushing this news:

Study: Refugees Stay In Manufacturing Jobs Longer Than Other Employees

 

Ulukaya and Soros

Ulukaya (Mr. Chobani Yogurt) with George Soros: It is a twofer—cheap labor for them while they work to create a borderless world!

 

That story features our ol’ pal Hamdi Ulukaya (Mr. Chobani Yogurt) who has been busy transforming Twin Falls, Idaho and promoting his Tent Foundation—a cabal of well known global businesses promoting the movement of cheap labor around the world.

Indeed we learned that Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service was contracted to write their refugee hiring guide!

See the Tent Foundation’s partners that include both facebook and twitter.

Expect to see more stories going forward as giant global corporations wail for more refugee laborers.

White South African farmers apply for refugee protection in Australia; no special treatment for them

First I saw this news from RT at Drudge:

White South African farmers claiming persecution at home seek refuge in Australia

So I checked it out and see that the government of Australia has said they will get no special treatment, and indeed the Australian Leftists say that the government must first take care of the mostly Muslim migrants being held in detention on Nauru and Manus islands.

As you know the US is taking some of those detainees in the “dumb” Australia Deal.

Story here:

White South African farmers won’t get special treatment, despite Peter Dutton’s earlier claims

Screenshot (273)

It is pretty undeniable!

But, because I have been predicting for years that once the United Nations is forced to admit that blacks can be racists and that whites are applying for refugee status because they are being persecuted by people of color they will fight to the death to deny it!

I once asked readers to imagine the day when the UN High Commissioner for Refugees must process white Swedes (or South Africans) in to the US. That alone might kill the entire refugee industry, I surmised. 

Heck, Trump could run a test! 

He could put white South Africans at the head of the line.

He could, you know!

In September his administration will send its “determination” to Congress which not only sets the numbers for resettlement for FY19, but sets priorities for which nationalities may be brought in.

In fact, he could classify white South Africans in the P-2 category which would allow anyone in that group to be eligible and each individual would not have to prove that he/she is personally being persecuted.  That would make the heathen rage (a phrase borrowed from a good friend)!

 

Back to Australia….

So here is the story from last month that confirms that the UNHCR will fight to never have to admit that blacks persecute whites as they push for Australia to take in the illegal aliens (mostly Muslims) who tried to get to Australia by boat.

The white South Africans (trying to get in legally) are of less humanitarian value to the UN than those illegal aliens from Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan etc.

Refugees on Nauru and Manus need help before South African white farmers, UNHCR says

The United Nations has urged Australia to resettle the refugees who have been languishing on Manus Island and Nauru for the past five years, rather than focusing on the plight of persecuted white South African farmers. [They are NOT refugees, they are illegal aliens and rejected asylum seekers!—ed]

As pressure mounts within the Coalition to help resettle the farmers, the UNHCR has cast doubt on whether South African farmers can be classified as refugees and granted protection under Australia’s humanitarian program.

Go here to see all the excuses.

It continually amazes me how the UN and its groupies try to invoke the resettlement rules when it comes to a group they do not wish to resettle because that group does not fit the meme they have been promoting for over 50 years and that is that whites persecute blacks and it is never the other way around!

For more on South Africa see my archive on the Rainbow Nation (Ha! Ha!).

Want to have some fun! Contact the White House and tell the Prez to make a special case for white South Africans when he sends his fiscal year 2019 refugee admissions determination to The Hill.

White House contact link is in the upper right hand corner of RRW.
