Posted on 11/30/2016 5:03:27 AM PST by NYer
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.
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 States Worldwide Refugee Admissions Processing System database.
Twenty-six were resettled in Dallas, 47 in Fort Worth, 19 in Houston, and 6 in Austin.
NBC News reported earlier that Artan was born in Somalia, then moved to Pakistan with his family in 2007.
Pakistan continues to host approximately 1.45 million refugees. Most are from Afghanistan and live in refugee villages and urban areas, according to the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) website for Pakistan.
Presumably, Artan and his family were processed by the UNHCR while in Pakistan, where they completed the current security vetting process and overseas medical screening. At some point, they were approved to enter the United States as participants in the federal refugee resettlement program by an officer of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), part of the Department of Homeland Security.
Subsequent to that approval, bureaucrats at the Department of States Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration, in consultation with the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) determined that Artan and his family should be resettled in Texas.

NO MORE MONEY TO CATHOLIC CHARITIES!!! NOT ONE PENNY!!!WHY the HELL aren’t they focused on CHRISTIANS??? IDIOTS! LEFTISTS!
Catholic Charities of Dallas works with the United States government to shelter refugees and victims of circumstance. The Resettlement Program makes arrangements for the refugee to be met at the airport and begins the process of helping the refugee resettle in their new community, the website says.
This is precisely why I do not donate to catholic charities.
Thanks for posting. UNaccountable collective ALERT!
Remind me to be mindful of where my charity money goes
Catholic Charities used to be a go-to but apparently they among other churches are all co-opted into obama’s scheme
and to think this resentful pig drove a car into a group of college kids and started stabbing them after being given every Christian kindness in this country, which is now being lectured by Obama to not make muslims angry by calling out their deficient ideology
Not an illiterate who really has nothing but a sears and roebuck dream about some place he probably doesn't believe exists.
As a man thinketh, so IS he
The victims should sue Catholic Charities into penury.
An organization that gets something like 65% of its revenue from the government isn’t a “charity” at all. It’s a Marxist racket.
I am often wary of second collections at Mass. Some are great but some go to CCHD, Catholic Relief Services, etc. and I do NOT want to give to those organizations.
Govt is paying about $5000 per month per refugee. A lot of charities with wilderness retreat facilities, large locations or dorms/housing are cashing in on it.
NO MORE MONEY TO CATHOLIC CHARITIES!!! NOT ONE PENNY!!!WHY the HELL arent they focused on CHRISTIANS??? IDIOTS! LEFTISTS!
Exactly. Millions of Christians being persectuted, murdered and enslaved all around the globe. And these supposed Christians concentrate on moving Muslims into the United States.
The stupidity is beyond understanding.
I have seen some of their good works at overseas refuge camps
I guess the key is to find a way to directly fund the nuns and priests at those overseas missions and camps, if you want to help
Or just focus on home
Lots of people hurting in Louisiana, North Carolina and now Tennessee due to natural (and unnatural) disasters
Wow, it’s only 8:15. EARLY FOR BASH A CATHOLIC THREAD :)
I will scour the internet for things every other Christian, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist group did wrong and get back to you.
Now I know why Catholics usually vote differently than protestants
As a nominal Catholic, I stopped attending mass some years back when the radical liberalism/socialism they preach became evident to me. The weekly antics of Pope Francis is the only reminder I need to keep my personal relationship with our Lord on track.
Muslim refugees are blanketed w / endless tax benefits including:
-Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) formerly known as AFDC
-Medicaid, -Food Stamps, -Public Housing
-Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
-Social Security Disability Insurance
- Developmental Disabilities (ADD) checks
-Child Care and Development Fund, etc etc etc
See entire list at #16
<><> collecting welfare, food stamps and, healthcare benefits
<><> cashing ADD checks for "fibromyalgia" or whatever.
<><>Cashing hefty SS checks by claiming "asylum."
And that's just for one identity.
Our sap-happy government cannot even assure Americans that it can enforce immigration laws already on the books.
NTL REVIEW/BY DAVID HANSON----The immigrant Muslim Boston Bomber brothers---riding the US gravy train....accompanied by virtually every family member--- offer us a teachable moment about what has become near- suicidal US immigration policies.
LAWS CURRENTLY ON THE BOOKS BEING RELENTLESSLY VIOLATED:
(1) foreign nationals in the US must at least avoid criminal activity,
(2) foreigners must stay off public assistance,
(3) the US govt is disinclined to grant "asylum" (means a free ride on the US gravy train and endless SS payments) to fearful refugees from war-torn Islamic regions,
(4) on-the-book govt mandates that force struggling taxpayers to foot the bill for the refugees to go back and forth between America and their supposedly hostile homelands on the taxpayers' dime.
Isn't it strange (smirk)?
Theyre always whining they're running out of SS money for working Americans who put in money for years.....
Theyre always whining they're running out of pension money aging working Americans put in for years.
Theyre always whining they're running out of Medicare money aging working Americans put in for years.
They n-e-v-e-r e-v-e-r seem to run out of tax dollars to fund sanctuary cities, welfare and food stamps, education and healthcare, endless SS payments and EITC checks for these parasitic immigrants.
All of them on our soil illegally....money-guzzling creeps who never put a dime into the system.
Also include Lutheran Social Services in this ban. When so-called “Christian” refugee services bring 99.5% Muslims into this country while leaving Christian families in the refugee terror camps, they should be defunded immediately upon Pres. Trump’s inauguration.
