ICE searching for 270 Somalis that crossed Mexican Border

Post by Llagoud » 24 Feb 2010, 03:57

I'm tempted to quote Struther Martin.

http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpre ... l-shabaab/
A Virginia man has admitted he helped 270 Somalis, possibly with terrorist connections, get into the US by crossing the Mexican border. None have been found, but all are believed to have blended into states with large Somali or African refugee populations. Hat tip: Richard Falknor at Blue Ridge Forum who just yesterday noted that few at CPAC last week discussed National Security.

From the Washington Examiner today:

Authorities are searching for 270 Somalis believed to have entered the U.S. illegally with the help of a Virginia man who admitted contacts with an Islamic terrorist group.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent said his agency had yet to locate any of the suspected illegal immigrants.

According to an affidavit filed in Alexandria’s federal court, Anthony Joseph Tracy told authorities that he came in contact with the Somali terrorist organization Al-Shabaab, which announced an alliance with al Qaeda earlier this year.

ICE Agent Thomas Eyre testified during a hearing that authorities are “concerned” about the 35-year-old’s dealings with the group.

In an e-mail, Tracy reportedly wrote, “i helped alot of somalis and most are good but there are some who are bad and i leave them to ALLAH,” the affidavit said.

Are they in your state?

Eyre testified that authorities had not yet tracked down any of the Somalis whom Tracy allegedly helped travel to the U.S. The affidavit says Tracy’s e-mails, combined with information on Facebook, show that the Somalis have spread across the country and are living in New York, North Carolina, Tennessee, Minnesota and Arizona. [Other states with large Somali populations are California, Ohio, Maine, Virginia, Colorado, Nebraska and Washington state---ed]

A circuitous trip involving Kenya, Cuba and Mexico among other stops! We reported on this route previously here.

Eyre indicated authorities are trying to find the Somalis and determine whether they’re associated with Al-Shabaab. An ICE spokeswoman said she could not comment on an ongoing investigation. The Somalis are believed to have entered the United States through the border with Mexico after making a circuitous trip from Kenya to Dubai to Moscow to Cuba to South America to Mexico and then the U.S., Eyre testified.

Then we have the naive (or is it purposefully duplicitous) International Rescue Committee that is complicit in bringing other illegal Somalis here over many years as part of the now suspended fraudulent Family Reunification program (where the State Department admits as many as 36,000 Africans entered the US illegally) running their mouths about how could those poor people get all that money! Shut up, would you!

Vanessa Parra, a spokeswoman for Refugees International, estimated the trip could cost as much as $30,000. “It would be difficult for most Somalis to get that kind of money,” she said.

Tracy split to Kenya in April. That means these possible Somali terrorists have had ten months to disappear into a town near you.

Tracy, who moved to Kenya in April from Winchester, is accused of helping the Somalis move to the United States by getting them travel visas to Cuba through contacts he had at the Cuban Embassy, court documents said. The visas were issued using fraudulent information Tracy allegedly provided his contacts. Authorities say Tracy knew that the U.S. was the Somalis’ intended final destination.
The US State Department has admitted over 80,000 Somali refugees to the US (this linked post continues to be one of the most widely read posts we have ever written) in the last 25 years and then in 2008 had to suspend family reunification because widespread immigration fraud was revealed through DNA testing. That specific program has not yet been reopened (that we know of), but will be soon.

http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpre ... n-program/
With little fanfare [Edit: little fanfare! It was because they wanted to keep it quiet, the WSJ had it, where were you?] , the program was halted in March 2008 after DNA testing on applicants in Africa found that up to 87 percent of their familial claims were fraudulent.
DNA testing was not done on the alleged relatives in the United States. The State Department said it targeted Africans abroad only for genetic testing because they make up 95 percent of applicants to the program. The testing started, officials said, only after suspicions of fraud arose in applications originating among refugees in Kenya.
The Homeland Security Department has jurisdiction to determine if any of those applications were fraudulent but department officials said Thursday they had no plans to check those already in the United States. Such a move would likely draw opposition from civil rights groups.

And it's happenening throught Western Civilization....ignoring the damages being done in Britain, Germany, Sweden, France, Australia, on and on.

Those that want controls in place are simply dismissed as racist.

LABOUR dismissed the British public’s widespread opposition to mass immigration as “racism”, a Government document revealed yesterday.

Officials made it clear that public opinion was strongly against relaxing border controls.

But ministers were urged to ignore voters’ “racist” views and press ahead with a secret policy to encourage migrants to flood into Britain. Whitehall experts even proposed a major propaganda campaign to soften up voters in preparation for the mass influx of newcomers.

The details were laid bare in the original draft of a policy document released for the first time under the Freedom of Information Act.

Last night critics accused the Government of snubbing the concerns of British citizens in their deliberate pursuit of a multicultural society. ... 827569.htm
Australia under threat from enemy within: Rudd

Australians are now under a permanent and increased threat of attack from "homegrown" terrorists, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd says.

Mr Rudd today released the Federal Government's counter-terrorism white paper which has identified the growing threat of attacks from militant Islamists from within Australia and overseas.

The Government will spend almost $70 million on new visa measures that will require visitors from 10 countries to provide fingerprints and facial scanning images on entry to Australia.

And a counter-terrorism agency will be established within ASIO to coordinate action against possible attacks.

Mr Rudd says Australia is a specific target of terrorism threats from groups such as Al Qaeda and those who take inspiration from it.

"Homegrown terrorism is now a reality in Australia that we have to accept," he said.

"Meh, oh well, golly gee.We meant well."

Caution: Jihad is closer than it appears.
