Immigrants clash in Moorhead fray
MPLS Star Tribune ^ | 12-19-10 | JOY POWELL

Posted on 12/20/2010 11:20:43 AM PST by WOBBLY BOB

least 20 police officers responded to a melee in Moorhead, Minn., early Sunday that involved up to a dozen young African immigrants fighting not only with hands and feet, but also with a taser, knives, a replica handgun and a shovel.

More than 100 people looked on, many yelling, in the parking lot of a bowling alley on the city's north side, police said.

So they have basically imported an Africa blood feud to Moorhead. Why are these people in our country?

“He said he hopes elders from both Sudanese and Liberian communities can meet with the young people to resolve the renewed fighting.”

A better idea is to deport them all back to their homes until they can act like ladies and gentleman.

I'm sorry, I'm just laughing so much from reading the article, all can think of are the blessings of diversity.

And a remake of "West Side Story" with the Sharks and Jets Suds and Libs.

I dunno, I’d take the shovel over a “replica gun”. “Hey, mofo, I’m gonna pretend cap yo’ a**!”

State Department Using ‘Diversity Visas’ to Encourage Immigration to U.S. from Terror-Ridden Yemen

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/59270

it wouldn’t be difficult to greatly reduce immigration numbers and limit people coming from places that support terrorism or have a higher than average arrest rate.

But like airport screeening or anything else, we don’t want to “profile” so we just let in anyone and everyone and act surprised when a bunch of idiots show up.

How the heck did these people ever get here. (Nevermind, rhetorical question)

The real question is, how can we get them out. France, IIRC, just passed a law, that if you’re an immigrant and you break the law, instant deportation.

France! Guess they’re done with multi-culti. Brigette Bardot was right.

Often the local socialist churches (ELCA and the like) act as sponsors.
They get them here and then help them apply for welfare.
This is why the National Council of Churches is always forefront in local media to be up at our state capitol lobbying for free translators, sanctuary city status,heating assistance,section 8,free health care (MINNCARE) and anything else you can imagine for gimmegrants.

Because liberals and rinos consider having too many white people is evil. Read Frank Rich’s article about how he’s giddy Euro-Americans will soon become a minority and thus turn the US into a socialist utopia.

We have that law for Green Card holders as well as Permant Residents. The trouble is we rarely, if ever, actually use it.

Just visited their website. Yep, pretty much the socialist agenda listed under their "Social Creed for the 21st Century"

Another bunch of people with good intentions, totally out of touch with reality.

I read that initially as Motorhead.

Don’t know what that would be about, but I’m pretty sure it would be epic.

At first I thought this might have something to do with the actress who played Endorra on Bewitched.

Moorhead police said arrests are possible this week.

Terrific job by the union-backed, pro-diversity police. Arrests are POSSIBLE? One cop witnesses a guy being hit on the head with a shovel and can't arrest him? Cowards.

Those words have very special meaning. Do the names Canter and Siegel (a curse on both their houses unto the 100th generation) mean anything to you?

“Often the local socialist churches (ELCA and the like) act as sponsors.

I believe that has been inflicted on my childhood home town of Owatonna MN, where they brought over an entire village of Somalis who established a hellhole of a ghetto that is violence and crime ridden. In the past there was virtually no crime in town, now there is a lot (but mostly originating in the Somali ghetto.) Almost all are receiving very generous Minnesota welfare payments to subsidize their anti-civilized behavior patterns.

IIRC they built a mosque/prayer room in the high school while denying meeting space for the Bible Club.

These useless critters got in as refugees. We get 100,000 refugees a year. 80% are Muslim these days. There is a huge industry of money grubbing dogooders who keep bringing these idiots here. Just about all Somalians here are refugees

Various churches (Lutheran is very active) sponsor them. Even Jewish refugee agencies who bring in Muslims because they ran out of Jews

There are times when I think Switzerland may be the best nation on Earth. I visited in 1995. They certainly have the scenery to qualify.

They have some quirky laws, though...for example, motorsports of any kind are illegal there. Speeding fines can be downright draconian. OTOH, the tax laws are pretty good.
