What did you expect?

You know for such smart people, the Swiss can really be dumb, sometimes.

This is what Trump wants to prevent, which the communists are going foaming-at-the-mouth insane over.

If they would ask Bloomberg, dumb as he is, he would tell them to bring in more.

In America, it’s more like 150% of Somali “ refugees” are on welfare, maybe more.

How is 150% even possible?

Rampant welfare fraud is how

There's no way these IQs in the 60s can function in the modern world.

I used to be concerned about these literal idiots but now that I see they think they are entitled to be spoon fed for life by those who can function, I don't want them anywhere near western society. Don't think the Chinese, Japanese etc. want them either.

And they're also muslims. What could possibly be the problem?

Yeah, but the BIG question for the Swiss is what the lowlife Somalis are stealing.

MINN SOMALIS STEAL $300 MILLION TAX DOLLARS——The Worst Scandal In Minnesota History?
Center of the American Experiment ^ | May 14, 2018 | John Hinderaker
FR Posted on 5/15/2018, 9:24:53 AM by 2ndDivisionVet

Fox 9 television uncovers a far-reaching scandal: last year, more than $100 million in cash left the Twin Cities airport in carry-on luggage, bound for the Middle East and Africa: This story begins at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where mysterious suitcases filled with cash have become a common carry-on. On the morning of March 15, Fox 9 chased a tip about a man who was leaving the country. Sources said he took a carry-on bag through security that was packed with $1 million in cash. Travelers can do that, as long as they fill out the proper government forms. Fox 9 learned that these cloak-and-dagger scenarios now happen almost weekly at MSP. The money is usually headed to the Middle East, Dubai and points beyond. Sources said last year alone, more than $100 million in cash left MSP in carry-on luggage.

Where does the money come from, and where is it going? It was coming from Hawalas, businesses used to courier money to countries that have no official banking system.Some immigrant communities rely on Hawalas to send funds to help impoverished relatives back home.

[Former Seattle police detective Glen] Kerns discovered some of the money was being funneled to a Hawala in the region of Somalia that is controlled by the al Shabaab terrorist group.

But the real scandal is where the money came from in the first place–welfare fraud:As Kerns dug deeper, he found that some of the individuals who were sending out tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of remittance payments happened to be on government assistance in this country. How could they possibly come up with such big bucks to transfer back home? “We had sources that told us, ‘It’s welfare fraud, it’s all about the daycare,’” said Kerns. *** Five years ago the Fox 9 Investigators were first to report that daycare fraud was on the rise in Minnesota, exposing how some businesses were gaming the system to steal millions in government subsidies meant to help low-income families with their childcare expenses.

“It’s a great way to make some money,” Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said In order for the scheme to work, the daycare centers falsely signed up low income Somali Muslim families that qualify for child care assistance funding.Surveillance videos from a case prosecuted by Hennepin County show parents checking their kids into a center, only to leave with them a few minutes later. Sometimes, no children would show up.

Either way, the center would bill the state for a full day of childcare.Video from that same case shows a man handing out envelopes of what are believed to be kickback payments to parents who are in on the fraud. Evidently welfare fraud in various forms is widespread in Minnesota’s Somali immigrant community. This is, I think, generally known, but the scale of fraud disclosed here is astonishing:

“We believe that there’s a scope of fraud out there that we really need to get our arms around and ensure that those dollars are going to kids that really need them,” Acting Commissioner for the Department of Human Services Chuck Johnson said.

He told the Fox 9 Investigators his agency has 10 daycares currently under active investigation for fraud. Fox 9 has learned dozens more are considered suspicious. Search warrants obtained by the Fox 9 Investigators show each one of the suspect centers has received several million dollars in childcare assistance funds.

According to public records and government sources, most are owned by Somali immigrants. *** Sources in the Somali community told Fox 9 it is an open secret that starting a daycare center is a license to make money.

The fraud is so widespread they said, that people buy shares of daycare businesses to get a cut of the huge public subsidies that are pouring in. Government insiders believe this scam is costing the state at least a hundred million dollars a year, half of all child care subsidies.

A friend who saw this news story wrote: This has me more angry than I’ve been since the 2011 tax increase on the “rich” aka, working families. I can’t put into words how utterly incompetent you must be to not have a checks and balances in place for tax payer funded programs, the tax payer dollars that people like myself and millions others diligently pay quarterly, leaving our children in childcare to work and provide for our families, pay taxes, only to have this hard work fund bogus programs that somehow are funding the same terrorist activities meant to harm our country?!!! Unbelievable. The commissioner and employees responsible for overseeing this mess should pay, every single one of them – they should be fired – they didn’t do their job.

Her outrage is appropriate, but perhaps misguided. I suspect that many of Minnesota’s liberals think that our bureaucrats performed their jobs very well: they siphoned off hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to finance liberal constituencies—the principal purpose of government, according to our lib friends.

So, how dumb are we? We need to totally revamp both our immigration policies and our welfare system to guard against these Somali migrant crooks.
