    [snip] In his now-stalled immigration executive orders, Trump also wanted to halt for 90 days the entry of almost all citizens from six terror-prone countries – Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Although that provision applied to most citizens of those countries rather than to refugees specifically, since Trump took office the six countries have accounted for 4,478 refugee arrivals in the U.S. – 1,655 from Somalia, 1,603 from Syria, 779 from Iran, 425 from Sudan, 16 from Yemen, and none from Libya. All but two of the Somali refugees are Muslims, as are about three-quarters of the Sudanese...
  • Europe takes in refugees by the millions; Saudis blow them out of the water

    While Germany, Greece, the Visegrad countries, and Brussels all argue about who should take in the most migrants, the Saudis have evidently found a much simpler solution to the problem. A boat carrying Somali refugees off the coast of Yemen was allegedly attacked by the Saudi-led coalition which is intervening in Yemen’s civil war, reported Human Rights Watch. “The coalition’s apparent firing on a boat filled with fleeing refugees is only the latest likely war crime in Yemen’s two-year-long war,” HRW’s Middle East director Sarah Leah Whitson said. Here’s their account of what transpired: One of the boat’s four Yemeni crew members...
  • Obama Extends Somali ‘Protected Status’ Before Exit

    In the final week of the Obama Administration, the outgoing Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) extended the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Somali nationals and others for an additional 18 months. The program was not scheduled to expire until March 2017. Somali nationals, and “eligible individuals without nationality who last habitually resided in Somalia,” now have an additional 18 months added to their “temporary” status that has been in place since 1991. The program was extended by President George W. Bush in 2001 and by President Obama in 2012. When a “temporary” status lasts 25 years, it’s not temporary at...

    The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has claimed responsibility for Monday's attack at Ohio State University that injured nine. The terror group's Amaq News Agency on Tuesday claimed the attack, carried out by an 18-year-old Ohio State student, was perpetrated by a "soldier of the Islamic State." Authorities have not commented on what motivated the attack but could not rule out the possibility of terrorism. Abdul Razak Ali Artan hit a crowd of pedestrians with a car before stabbing several people with a butcher knife Monday morning on Ohio State's campus. Artan was killed by an officer at...

    COLUMBUS – Fifteen miles northeast of Ohio State University, where a Somali immigrant attemped a gruesome attack Monday, Omar Hassan grieved. And worried. “The timing is not good,” Hassan, 54, said in reference to the country’s increasingly intensified anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim fears. “We are black. We are Muslim. We are Somali. We are all the negative stigmas.” Hassan sat in the lobby of the Somali Community Association offices upstairs and around the back of a 1970s-era strip mall on Cleveland Avenue. He said the office is the first stop for people arriving from the east African nation who are seeking...

    Abdul Razak Ali Artan, the Somali refugee who attacked eleven people on the campus of Ohio State University on Monday, was initially resettled in Texas by Catholic Charities of Dallas in June 2014, according to The Dallas Morning News. snip Artan and his family “arrived at DFW Airport by way of JFK International Airport, and stayed in temporary housing in Dallas for 23 days,” according to NBC5. A spokesperson for the State Department tells Breitbart News that 98 Somali refugees arrived in Texas in June of 2014, according to the U.S. Department of State’s Worldwide Refugee Admissions Processing System database....

    “Our response to this situation matters. If we respond to this situation by casting aspersions on millions of people that adhere to a particular religion or if we increase our suspicion of people who practice a particular religion, we are more likely going to contribute to acts of violence than we are to prevent them.” Of course we should not cast aspersions on people who had nothing to do with this jihad attack. But this kind of talk is used to preclude any examination of the motivating ideology underlying such attacks, and that leaves us more vulnerable to more such...

    There should never have been a Little Mogadishu in Columbus, Ohio. Unfortunately politicians chose to import Somalia's Islamic violence to the United States. There are as a result Little Mogadishus all over America. Including in Columbus, Ohio. The latest Muslim terror attacks at OSU is not the first Islamic terror plot to become out of the Somali settlement in Columbus.

    Here is more of the usual denial and willful ignorance that we always get from authorities and the establishment propaganda media after a jihad attack. In reality, Abdul Artan referenced Anwar al-Awlaki and declared: “By Allah, I am willing to kill a billion infidels.” Yes, his motive is a real head-scratcher. “Why Did He Do It?

    The Somali-born student who carried out a car-and-knife attack at Ohio State University complained on his Facebook account about U.S. interference in countries with Muslim communities, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press. Abdul Razak Ali Artan warned about Muslims he described as belonging to “a sleeper cell, waiting for a signal.” He said that if the U.S. wanted “Muslims to stop carrying lone wolf attacks, then make peace with ‘dawla in al sham,’” a term for the Islamic State group, according to the law enforcement official, who was briefed on the investigation but wasn't authorized to discuss it...

    Somali refugee Abdul Razak Ali Artan posted on Facebook that he was 'sick and tired of seeing my fellow Muslim brothers being killed and tortured' shortly before he went on a slashing rampage at the Ohio State University that left 11 injured. Authorities are currently investigating the posts, allegedly made by Artan, which mention radical cleric Anwar Awlaki and accuse America of 'interfering' with other nations. 'I am sick and tired of seeing my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters being killed and tortured EVERYWHERE,' it stated. 'I can't take it anymore.

    The Somali refugee who unleashed a brutal slashing rampage at the Ohio State University that left 11 injured on Monday, is just 18 years old according to NBC.  But with his balding hair, mustache and goatee, Abdul Razak Ali Artan has the appearance of someone who could be much older.  Authorities have not yet verified the terror suspect's age - but it is possible pretending to be younger could have helped Artan's immigration status in the US. Artan entered the U.S. in 2014 - when he was around 16, based on current reports of his age.

    A Somali refugee and Ohio State University student plowed his car into a group of people on campus Monday and slashed them with a butcher knife — and police are now investigating whether the attack was an act of terror, federal sources told The Post. “He did exhibit some of the methods encouraged by terror groups who can’t attack the US themselves,” a federal source said. When the attack began, police issued an “active shooter” alert that prompted a campus-wide lockdown and chillingly ordered students to “run, hide, fight.”

    The latest Somali immigrant attack in America’s heartland was as predictable as it was preventable. Ten people are hospitalized in an attack that could have been much worse, but for our fortunate ability to counter the terrorist with an armed response. The Left has no excuse — none whatsoever — for it’s decision to allow the mass immigration to America of a group with few economic prospects and a hugely disproportionate percentage of people who are planning attacks on Americans. And yet, they’ve done it and continue to do it, and Donald Trump is one of the few who has...
