Skip to comments.USA takes in 6,000 Somali from Uganda

THE American government is to resettle 5,800 refugees from Nakivale refugee camp in Isingiro district to the United States, Prosy Katura, the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) protection officer, has revealed.
Katura said a team has already been sent to Nakivale to scrutinise the refugees to ensure they have no links with al-Qaeda, an extremist group. The American taskforce at the camp will also study files of individual refugees since they arrived in Uganda.
During a meeting with the Germany ambassador to Uganda, Reinhard Buchholz, who visited the camp on Friday, Katura said the exercise under the expedited Somali resettlement programme should be completed by September. We have so far scrutinised about 2,000 Somalis out of 5,800 who are living in Nakivale.
Explaining the reason of resettling Somalis to the US, Katura said Somali refugees have failed to integrate with other refugee groups living in Nakivale and with the local communities because of their unique language and culture.
She added that the group cannot go back to Somalia since the country is still unstable and they fear to be killed and persecuted. Nakivale has about 470,000 refugees from Somalia, Rwanda, Sudan, Congo, Burundi, Kenya and Eritrea. There are other refugees in Uganda, in camps of Kyangwari, Orukinga and Kyaka.

Ugh. More problems.
I am all for helping refugees, and for taking in Haitians.
But no muslims—not now, while islam is at war with us.
Southern Sudanese, OK. South Africans, OK. Somalis? Africa’s Palestinians? Pure madness.
nOW..WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG WITH THIS PLAN?
Are they going to take the jobs Americans have lost or saved? Immigration insanity by nobama and his leftist minions.
Importing terrorism now are we? America just doesn’t have enough poverty and terrorism so we have to import it. Of course, terrorists and freeloaders also make good DemocRAT voters.
More “wards” of the state.
Haitians? What state are you in? Florida would love to send you a few hundred thousand to bankrupt your state. This is all Obama letting somalis flood in. Somalia is a cancer, Stupid poppy Bush had to get involved thanks to the lib media. Folks - this country is bankrupt.
Look at my thumb . . .
Gee we’re dumb
Denver airport almost exclusively employs Somalis. This is all about destroying America. No more illegals or refugess. FR is even filled with bleeding hearts. We are broke people.
Oh like being illiterate thuggish Muzzies. More Muzzie scum who hate the West coming to our country. This would be like the Stewards of Gondor allowing orcs to settle there.
Jobs? What makes you think they'll be expected to get jobs?
They'll be taught all they need to know. how to swipe that government issued debit card and knowing the difference between the letters (R) and (D) at election time.
That is all that matters to them
Literally to break this Country with more crime and welfare,is the rats mission so that a dictator ultimately can bring the sheeple under control.
this should cost us but obama has to get voters from somewhere.
They can't integrate in African communities?
So it makes sense to dump them on the American people??
Damnit! No more third worlders. They are illiterate, have no job skills we need, are frequently disease ridden, and are going to be on welfare. Enough already. Add to the pot that they are probably going to be goat fornicators.
I’m sick and tired of getting all of these frigging anchors put around our necks by the stinking govt.
“Explaining the reason of resettling Somalis to the US, Katura said Somali refugees have failed to integrate with other refugee groups living in Nakivale and with the local communities because of their unique language and culture.”
More Leftist bullshit actually. Bring them here to fail to integrate with our society!? Right! Makes a lot of sense if you’re a frickin’ Leftist looking for more voters for your camp.
“She added that the group cannot go back to Somalia since the country is still unstable and they fear to be killed and persecuted.”
So bring them here to persecute and kill us! That’s Leftist logic for you.
I notice the Leftist United Nations is responsible according to this article for the review of these “refugees”, with the American contingent also looking at their files. Almost as though the UN reluctantly allowed American involvement in the review process. This reeks of UN power over a process that should be totally under American control.
Are we capitulating to the UN? Are we digressing to the UN?
