Lewiston, ME: Somalis gone wild

Maine First Media has posted a video taken earlier this month in Kennedy Park in Lewiston, ME, the Somali capital of New England.

No time to do more than post the news, but here are some ‘highlights.’ Visit Maine First Media for the video.

Gang of Somali Kids Attack Park Goers in Lewiston

It was an otherwise pleasant evening in Maine when two dozen Somali youth swarmed and attacked two local residents in Kennedy Park last Thursday evening.

The Somali mob attacked around 7:45 pm, just as the sun was setting on this historic city park in the heart of Maine’s second largest city.

A local mother recorded as a mob of teens and children, boys and girls as young as nine years old, brandishing wooden bats and other objects, along with fists, feet and sheer numbers to attack the two non-Somali defenders. At one point you can even here one of the hoodlums repeatedly daring the woman to, “stop me, b**ch.”

Lewiston Police tell Maine First Media one of the victims was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. However, no charges were filed.

Lewiston Mayor, Shane Bouchard says these types of incidents are common at Kennedy Park, but points to Lewiston’s low crime rate.

Shane Bouchard

Mayor Bouchard: We have this all the time, but our crime rate is really low! (Could that be because people are FEARFUL of pressing charges?)

“Kennedy Park is a large common space in the middle of some of the poorest census tracts in the Northeast,” Mayor Bouchard said. “When you have large, diverse groups of people in the same place you are bound to have incidents. Lewiston is no different in that respect than any other medium to large city, except that Lewiston’s violent crime rate is one of the lowest in Maine.”

While the Mayor brings up Lewiston’s violent crime statistics, it is important to note, in this case, the victim didn’t press charges, meaning, statistically there was no crime. Incidents like this often go unreported and are not reflected in the numbers — something even Mayor Bouchard has to admit.


This is far from the first incident of Somalian attacks at Kennedy Park. Recently, a 10-year-old girl was jumped and beaten by a Somali girl at the park. As such occurrences become more common in Lewiston, many lifelong residents are now afraid to bring their own children to play.

Some residents say police officers tell them the safest thing would be not to bring their kids to the park anymore. However, according to Lewiston Police Department Public Information Officer, Lieutenant David St. Pierre, that is not the department’s stance.


On any given day, dozens if not hundreds of Somali youth can be found occupying Kennedy Park and the violence is nothing new. Local residents bearing the brunt of these violent mobs are growing frustrated. Maine First Media was told it took police at least 7-8 minutes to arrive on the scene — despite the police station being right across the street from the park.

Caught! Somali man living in Vermont used false identity to get in to US as a refugee

Not surprising of course, but what is surprising is that he is actually being prosecuted.

You can bet this wouldn’t be happening if Hillary was President!

And, how is this for timing—see my previous post this morning about a retired foreign service officer blowing the whistle on widespread fraud in the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program.

US Marshal badge

Will the long arm of the law find the liars?

Longtime readers may remember our extensive coverage of Somali family reunification fraud first revealed in the Wall Street Journal in 2008 (behind a paywall now).

If you search RRW for ‘Somali family reunification fraud‘ you can find maybe twenty more posts on the topic over the years!

Don’t hold your breath that a large number of the tens of thousands who lied about who they are, will get caught, but this is a start!

See the moves he made that got him caught…..

From the Portland Press Herald (hat tip: Frank):

A Somali man who settled in Maine 14 years ago after claiming refugee status under someone else’s name is suspected of falsifying passport and citizenship applications.

Hussien Noor Hussien, 55, most recently of Burlington, Vermont, was arrested there last week by the U.S. Marshals Service and is scheduled to appear in federal court in Portland on June 5. He has been charged with making a false statement on a passport application, procuring naturalization contrary to law and falsely using the personage of another in a naturalization proceeding.

He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted, although he could be deported instead.  [Prison would cost the taxpayers a bundle! I say deport and make a big deal out of it to send the message!—ed]

An affidavit by James Sauer, a special agent with the U.S. State Department, said the investigation into Hussien began in June 2017 after his passport was flagged. Over the course of almost a year, this is what Sauer uncovered.

Hussien entered the U.S. in August 2004 by claiming refugee status and using the name and identification of another man, Abukar Hassan Abdule, and traveling with Abdule’s wife and children. They settled in Lewiston, which is home to the state’s largest population of immigrants from war-torn Somalia.

Some time later, Hussien obtained a Maine driver’s license using Abdule’s name. In March 2007, he obtained legal permanent resident status under Abdule’s name. Four years later, in May 2011, he filed an application for naturalization using Abdule’s name. It was approved on Oct. 28, 2011.

Keep reading here there are more juicy bits about how he got caught.

Hussien was found living in Burlington in federally subsidized Section 8 housing with a woman and five children. He was working at a Walmart in nearby Williston and the pay stubs were in his real name.

Hussien (or whatever his name is!) is only the tip of the iceberg!

Looking for something to do?

Contact the White House (contact link in upper right hand column of RRW) and tell the President to find and vigorously prosecute refugee fraud then broadcast the punishment widely around the world in the hope of deterring the ever-growing epidemic of refugee fraud, bribery and corruption.

Time to take fraud in US Refugee Program more seriously; where is Congress?

A former foreign service officer who worked in several capacities in the US Refugee Admissions Program around the world speaks from first hand experience when she says it is past time—way past time—for Congress to investigate the program.

After outlining examples of fraud that have been identified, Mary Doetsch says this at the Daily Caller:

It’s Time For Congress To Restore The Integrity Of The US Refugee Program

Perhaps even more disturbing than the actual fraud is the fact that this type of investigation is the exception rather than the norm. For decades, little heed has been paid to program’s extensive fraud.

unhcr sudan

Doetsch doesn’t say it, but I will. As a first step, let’s take the UN out of the process and if we are going to resettle refugees, let’s use American experts to make the decisions. Will save us a bundle of money too!

As a former refugee coordinator who served throughout the Middle East, Africa, Russia and Cuba, I saw first-hand the flagrant abuses and scams that permeate the refugee program. I witnessed widespread exploitation and misuse, from identity fraud to marriage and family relation scams, and from private individuals profiting from their involvement in USRAP to distortion of the actual refugee definition to ensure greater numbers of people who are really migrants are admitted as refugees.

During my own time working in this program, I watched USRAP continue to expand unchecked, seemingly without concern for whether it served the best interests of its own citizens or the country.

While refugee admissions have been declining under the Trump administration, there has been almost no focus on programmatic fraud. Midway into the 2018 fiscal year, just over a quarter of the 45,000 individuals proposed in the FY18 refugee ceiling had entered the country. This slow-down in admissions may reduce some fraud, but without structural reform, it cannot be eliminated.

Too many government officials, often under the guise of humanitarianism, have continued to disregard both the external “pay-to-play bribery schemes” of the UN along with the internal fraud within USRAP operations. The once admirable refugee program has lost its integrity and must be reformed. The USRAP is in need of a complete overhaul and it’s time for Congress to take the lead.

Read it all here.

Good luck trying to get Congress to do anything.

See what Ms. Doetsch said back in February 2017 in response to Trump’s announcement of restrictions to refugee resettlement from certain countries.

This morning as I see CNN crowing about how Trey Gowdy says the FBI did no wrong in planting someone in the Trump campaign, I am reminded of how the chicken! (yes Gowdy!) never lifted a finger to try to get to the bottom of the problems with the USRAP when he was chairman of the subcommittee responsible for overseeing the program.

Utah political operative urges Utahns to oppose Trump pick for refugee program head

I told you the other day, that the Trump Administration is putting up Utah resident and former State Department Foreign Service Officer, Ron Mortensen, for the top post at the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration. The position requires Senate approval and this is the beginning of what lies ahead for Mortensen on The Hill.

Holly Richardsen

Holly Richardson wants Utah’s Senators to block Trump nominee to head refugee program

There is nothing of major significance in the opinion piece by Holly Richardson (it is the same old stuff used against anyone with Mortensen’s views), but we learned a few more nuggets about the Mormon Church’s open borders viewpoint and its welcoming attitude toward Muslim migrants.  And we learned more about Senator Mike Lee (once the darling of the conservative Tea Party movement in America).

From the Salt Lake Tribune:

The irony is thick. The very week that The New York Times published an opinion piece on “What Islamophobic Politicians Can Learn From Mormons,Donald Trump nominated an immigration hardliner, Utahn Ron Mortensen, to oversee refugees and migration. As the Times piece points out, since 2015, 49 states have had Republican officials publicly attacking Islam. The one standout was Utah. Now, one Utahn with strong anti-immigrant positions could ascend to a position of prominence.

Mortensen has a long and vocal history of opposing immigration, especially undocumented immigrants. He has been writing anti-immigrant opinion pieces for more than a decade. He has castigated the LDS Church many times for its pro-family approach to immigration. In January, the LDS Church urged Congress to take action to prevent the deportation of “Dreamers,” or children who were brought to the United States without documentation. Mortensen criticized the church’s stance, saying that most “Dreamers” were committing multiple felonies.

In 2013, he called President Dieter F. Uchtdorf and other LDS leaders either naive or mean-spirited when Uchtdorf said President Barack Obama’s outline for immigration reform “matches the values of the Mormon faith” and included the shared values of compassion, family cohesion, respect for law and common sense.

The immigration “think tank” he belongs to proudly claims to be the nation’s only one “devoted exclusively to research and policy analysis of the economic, social, demographic, fiscal, and other impacts of immigration on the United States.” It says right in its tagline that it is for low immigration, whether documented or not. It concludes that “current, high levels of immigration are making it harder to achieve such important national objectives as better public schools, a cleaner environment, homeland security, and a living wage.” It’s also been labeled a hate group for its anti-immigrant bent.

Mortensen asserts that Utah has “lost its moral compass” because Utah as a whole welcomes immigrants into our communities and sides with the tenets of the Utah Compact.

Mike Lee

Republican Senator Mike Lee opposed Trump’s presidential bid because of Trump’s so-called “Muslim travel ban”

Mortensen and his ilk aside, Utah has a long history of supporting refugees.


Surprise or not, this move is outrageous. It is akin to appointing David Duke to oversee race relations or Karl Marx to oversee the free market.


Mortensen will need to be confirmed by the United States Senate. Both Utah senators can and should block this nomination. Senior Sen. Orrin Hatch has been a staunch supporter of ”Dreamers” and of the Utah Compact. Sen. Mike Lee did not vote for Donald Trump in part, he said, because he saw Trump’s travel ban on refugees from Muslim countries as an inappropriate “religious test.”

(As you know Trump handily won Utah in 2016 without Mike Lee!)

If you’ve ever wanted to “be the change,” here is your chance. Call the senators’ offices.

See my Utah archive here.  I wonder that maybe Holly wasn’t paying attention when Esar Met a newly arrived Muslim refugee from Burma brutally murdered a little Christian girl there.
