DACA Ending, With 6-Month Delay

“We are people of compassion and we are people of law. There is nothing compassionate about the failure to enforce immigration law. ”  – Attorney General Sessions

We should welcome those who legally come here and who respect the rule of law.

DACA was an un-Constitutional temporary program that excused illegal immigration and rewarded it.  It also promotes future illegal immigration.

799,077 illegal immigrants currently are protected under the program.

Nearly half — over 355,000 — of the people currently protected under the program live in California, New York and Texas, but populations reside in all 50 states and several U.S. territories. Their numbers range from over 200,000 in California to 162 in Montana, according to the most recent statistics from U.S. Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS). knoe

By ending the DACA program, President Trump is undoing an illegal action and re-establishing the rule of law.  He is placing this issue where it should be – on Congress.

The DACA program was implemented by the Obama administration in 2012.  To be eligible for the DACA program a person had to be under 16.  That would mean that the oldest of these individuals would be 20 – 21 years old.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services statistics from 2014 show that 84,600 illegal immigrants over the age of 25 had been approved for DACA between August 2012 and September 2013…

The USCIS figures show that between August 2012 and September 2013, 10,500 illegal immigrants ages 30 or higher were accepted by the program DailyCaller

The bar for acceptance in the program was set very low.

Judicial Watch – DACA recipients were not vetted

The screening process is much less for DACA than it would be for a green card, and so it is much more susceptible to fraud. USCIS should answer public concerns that DACA applicants are not required to prove their claims of eligibility, cis

“I can tell you that Judicial Watch is really pleased today by President Trump’s announcement through his Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he will rescind President Obama’s illegal alien amnesty known as “DACA.” This policy was rejected repeatedly by Congress, and rather than follow the Constitution and the rule of law, President Obama unilaterally granted illegal alien amnesty to 800,000 individuals.

We’re pleased that the administration will put this to a rest within 6 months, and Judicial Watch is pleased to highlight the fact it’s been battling this issue for years. We exposed, for instance, how President Obama’s administration bypassed security background checks in “lean and light procedures” to grant amnesty to these illegal aliens, contrary to their promises to the American public that there would be a thorough vetting. And so as a result, we can be sure there are many people who have this amnesty who don’t deserve it. And of course, given the fact they are illegal aliens, they should be subject to the rule of law the way anyone else would be.

Many so-called Dreamers are innocent.  Many are not.  2,139 DACA recipients lost their status due to criminal activity.

“Most DACA terminations were based on the following infractions (not ranked): alien smuggling, assaultive offenses, domestic violence, drug offenses, DUI, larceny and thefts, criminal trespass and burglary, sexual offenses with minors, other sex offenses and weapons offenses,” U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services told The Daily Caller.

Many Americans lost their dreams due to DACA dreamers.

In 2008, 17-year-old Los Angeles High School football star Jamiel Shaw II was murdered in cold blood by gang member and Dreamer Pedro Espinoza.

According to the Los Angeles Times, prosecutors argued Shaw was targeted and murdered because the 17-year-old “was a black man wearing a red backpack.” Espinoza apparently thought Shaw was a member of the Bloods gang.

Shaw, not a member of the Bloods, was wearing a red Spider-Man themed backpack.  “The panel found to be true allegations that Espinoza committed the crime in association with a gang and that he personally discharged a firearm,” noted the Times.

Chillingly, Espinoza showed no remorse for this crime:

With hair slicked back and wearing dark-rimmed glasses, Espinoza stared blankly at jurors as the verdict was read, pursing his lips. After they left the courtroom, he glanced back at the spectators and smiled.

“Some people believe if you are brought over by no fault of your own that it makes you a good person,” the victim’s father, Jamiel Shaw, said to a House subcommittee in 2015. “They want us to believe that DREAM act kids don’t murder. I am here to debunk that myth.”

“DREAM Act kids have turned my family’s American dream into a nightmare,” he added. “How many Americans killed by illegal aliens are too many?”  DailyWire

In 2013, a Dreamer ran over two little girls, stepsisters Anna Dieter-Eckerdt, 6, and Abigail Robinson, 11, while they were playing in a leaf pile.

Dreamer Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros ran over step-sisters Anna, 6, and Abigail, 11, in 2013, who were playing in a pile of leaves in the road, killing them both. Garcia-Cisneros then drove straight to an auto car wash in what the court ruled was an attempt to wash the evidence from her SUV.

After her conviction, the immigrant sought an appeal; in 2017, her conviction was overturned, the court saying there was insufficient evidence that she knew she ran over the girls and was deliberately trying to rid her car of the evidence. She still lives in America.  Read more at DailyWire

If Congress drafts and passes a new law that would provide a path to permanent residency to people brought here illegally as children the criteria should be very strict.

Victims Of Turkey’s Islamization: Women

Turkey, under the leadership of Erdogan, has moved rapidly toward re-Islamization.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that the current leadership of Turkey purposefully supports the country’s Islamization. “The problem is not in the tragedy we faced yesterday (the Su-24 incident), the problem is much deeper,” the Russian leader told reporters. “We see — and not only we, I assure you that the entire world sees that — that the current leadership of Turkey has been for a number of years pursuing a purposeful policy of support and the Islamization of the country.”   – Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2015

The victims are females.

On Feb. 6, 1935, Turkish women were allowed to vote in national elections for the first time, and eighteen female candidates were elected to parliament – a decade or more before women even in Western countries such as France, Italy and Belgium. Eight decades later, Turkish women look like unwilling passengers on H.G. Wells’ Time Machine traveling back to their great-grandmothers’ Ottoman lives.

Turkey’s strongman, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, once proudly saidthat “Women should know their place,” and that “Gender equality is against human nature”. His deputy prime minister said that women not to laugh in public. It was not shocking to anyone when Turkey’s Ministry of Family and Social Policies found in 2016 that no fewer than 86% of Turkish women have suffered physical or psychological violence at the hands of their partners or family. According to the ministry’s findings, physical violence is the most common form of abuse: 70% of women reported they have been physically assaulted.

More recently, Kadin Cinayetlerini Durduracagiz Platformu, a women’s rights organization, reported that 28 women were murdered by men in July 2017 alone. The same month, eight other — luckier — women were physically assaulted for “wearing shorts or ‘indecent’ outfits or smoking in public.” The report concluded by saying, “The state remains silent.”

Turkey increasingly features all possible social and political reflections of Islamism: authoritarianism, majoritarianism and officially-tolerated intolerance to everything Islamists may deem “un-Islamic.” Women are often the target group, and might not avoid intimidation even if they dress in line with the Islamic code.  Full article at MEForum

Public School Teachers Behind Violent Antifa Group

Public school teachers are leaders among in an Antifa faction – By Any Means Necessary (BAMN); a violent anarchist organization that DHS has classified as carrying  out “domestic terrorist violence” are teaching children in public schools; filling their heads with Antifa rot and that violence works.

Public school teachers are behind a leading far-left militant group that is part of the Antifa network that federal officials say is committing “domestic terrorist violence.”

By Any Means Necessary, which has played a key role in riots in Berkeley, Sacramento and elsewhere, has dozens of public school teachers among its members, including among its most prominent leaders.

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security began paying closer attention to Antifa groups in general after BAMN and other extremists started a riot and attacked marchers at a white nationalist rally in Sacramento last July, Politico reported on Friday. The Sacramento violence left at least 10 people hospitalized, several of whom had knife wounds….

After BAMN and other antifa groups staged violent protests in Berkeley to keep right-wing author Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking, Felarca defended her group’s acts of violence. BAMN was able to cancel another event, this time an April speech by pro-Trump author Ann Coulter, by promising a repeat performance of the Milo riots.

The FBI and DHS say Antifa groups like BAMN are engaging in “domestic terrorist violence,” according to the Politico report.

Just last weekend, Felarca helped organize BAMN’s mass demonstrations that “shut down” an anti-Marxism rally in Berkeley. As with BAMN’s other organized actions, left-wing actors at Saturday’s demonstrations violently attackedpeaceful protesters. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi condemned the Antifa violence in Berkeley, while Felarca called BAMN’s actions a “resounding success.” DailyCaller

By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) most prominent organizer is Yvette Felarca, a Berkeley middle school teacher and pro-violence anarchist.

Homeland Security Makes it Official: Antifa Classified As Domestic Terrorists

About time!

Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials of Antifa’s increasingly dangerous tactics — including attacks on the police — since early 2016 but were widely ignored long before Charlottesville and while Barack Obama was still president, Politico reported.  NewsMax

Politico:

Since well before the Aug. 12 rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned deadly, DHS has been issuing warnings about the growing likelihood of lethal violence between the left-wing anarchists and right-wing white supremacist and nationalist groups.

Previously unreported documents disclose that by April 2016, authorities believed that “anarchist extremists” were the primary instigators of violence at public rallies against a range of targets. They were blamed by authorities for attacks on the police, government and political institutions, along with symbols of “the capitalist system,” racism, social injustice and fascism, according to a confidential 2016 joint intelligence assessment by DHS and the FBI.

After President Donald Trump’s election in November, the antifa activists locked onto another target — his supporters, especially those from white supremacist and nationalist groups suddenly turning out in droves to hail his victory, support crackdowns on immigrants and Muslims and to protest efforts to remove symbols of the Confederacy.

Those reports appear to bolster Trump’s insistence that extremists on the left bore some blame for the clashes in Charlottesville and represent a “problem” nationally.

Though it reportedly exists without a leader or official chain of command, Antifa members are connected and operate much like terrorist cells do, and in April of 2016, a joint report by the FBI and DHS members spend weeks planning for violence at selected events, Politico reported. NewsMax

At the Sacramento rally, antifa protesters came looking for violence, and “engaged in several activities indicating proficiency in pre-operational planning, to include organizing carpools to travel from different locations, raising bail money in preparation for arrests, counter-surveilling law enforcement using three-man scout teams, using handheld radios for communication, and coordinating the event via social media,” the DHS report said. Politico

“Both the racists and a segment of violent Antifa counter-protestors are amped for battle in an escalating arms race, where police departments are outmaneuvered, resulting in increasingly violent dangerous confrontations,” former New York City police officer Brian Levin, who has been monitoring domestic militants for 31 years, told Politico. “It’s an orchestrated dance. The rallies spill over into social media and then even more people show up at the next rally primed for violent confrontation.”

Also in that April 2016 report, the FBI and DHS warned that Antifa would get more violent if “fascist, nationalist, racist or anti-immigrant parties obtain greater prominence or local political power in the United States, leading to anti-racist violent backlash from anarchist extremists,” Politico reported.

Further, Politico reports that some of the Antifa terrorists traveled to Turkey to train with kindred organizations, including two fighting against ISIS. NewsMax

Has France Been Bought By Qatar?

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy sold out France!

On August 4, the English press — not the French press — revealed that French prosecutors are actively investigating two events: the awarding the 2022 World Cup of football (soccer) to Qatar, and the purchase by “Qatari Diar”, a state-owned investment company, of a stake in the French utility firm Veolia.

At the center of the investigation is former French President Nicolas Sarkozy. To be sure, Sarkozy has not been formally indicted (and he may never be), but the evidence is overwhelming.

First, the World Cup. That the State of Qatar, known for decades for its active support of Islamic terror organizations, and with a temperature among the highest in the world — in addition to zero tradition in the world of football — was awarded the 2022 World Cup is, of course, a source of wonder ever since the award was announced by FIFA, the international governing body of football….

It is doubtful if the French investigators will ever get to the bottom of these two cases. The judiciary in France has a long tradition of submitting to the government. Since 1789, the French judiciary has not even been an independent power — as are the Legislative and the Executive — but a mere authority with a more limited scope.

It is revealing that these two investigations were exposed, not by the French press, but by the English press.

What we already know for sure is the following:

  1. A state sponsor of terrorism, Qatar, was allowed to buy France’s leading soccer team, Paris-Saint-Germain, with the help of then-president Nicolas Sarkozy. The former owner of the PSG was a private fund controlled in Europe by one of Sarkozy’s close friends. There would have been no deal without the direct consent of Sarkozy — that is the way France functions.
  2. A state sponsor of terrorism, Qatar, was not only allowed, but actively courted, by French officials to invest in some of France’s largest companies, including defense companies, such as Veolia, as well as the Airbus parent company, European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS); the energy group EDF; the construction firm, Vinci; and the media and defense group Lagardère.
  3. A state sponsor of terrorism, Qatar, was actively supported in its 2022 bid for the World Cup by the government of France and Nicolas Sarkozy, who declared after the FIFA vote in 2010: “Sport does not belong to a few countries. It belongs to the world… I don’t understand those who say that events should always be held in the same countries and the same continents.”
  4. There is a significant part of the French political class that seems to consider the Embassy of Qatar in Paris some sort of automatic teller machine (ATM), as has been showed by renowned journalists Christian Chesnot and Georges Malbrunot in their book, Nos très chers émirs (Our Very Dear Emirs) and deplored by the new ambassador of Qatar in France, Meshaal al-Thani.
  5. Since 2008, a state sponsor of terrorism, Qatar, has benefited from a huge tax break in France: the exemption of profits on property sales. In France, profits on property sales are not only taxed at 19%, they are subject to a further CSG/CRDS and social tax (15.5%), resulting in a combined total minimum tax rate of 34.5%. The rule is the same for everyone, whether a person or a corporation. Everyone, that is, but the State of Qatar, when the administration of Nicolas Sarkozy decided to exempt it from the tax. As a result, Qatar’s royal family and sovereign fund have since built up a huge portfolio of assets in France, one that dwarfs the portfolio of a state such as Saudi Arabia. Qatar’s portfolio ranges from a Champs-Élysées mall to the Lido Cabaret. “Our deficit has destroyed our freedom,” said Nathalie Goulet, a centrist senator from Lower Normandy, in 2013. “The Qataris are here to buy, while we are selling our family jewels.” Which they did. [1]

Qatar and other Gulf states try to benefit from tax exemptions everywhere in the world, but this convergence of facts — the selling of assets, sports clubs, defense companies and governmental representatives — is unique to France. It is through these tax breaks — this is only one of them — that the Qataris are buying the “jewels” of France.  GateStoneIntitute

Hungary Leaders Responds To Legal Action From The EU By Sending $476 Million Bill For Border Fence

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban wanted to make it impossible for uninvited guests to cross the border and it appears as though he has succeeded.

Hungary’s 96-mile long, 14-foot tall double-line fence includes several layers of razor-wire capable of delivering electric shocks. The barrier features cameras, heat sensors and loudspeakers ready to tell migrants they’re about to break Hungarian law if they as much as touch the fence.  WorldTribune

Now Hungry wants the EU to pay half the bill for the border-fence.  Good one.

Hungary wants the European Union to pay half the bill for the razor-wired fence it erected in 2015 to keep migrants out, Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s administration announced Thursday.

The fence has virtually erased illegal immigration into Hungary less than two years after it was considered the primary route for migrants attempting to enter the EU. Janos Lazar, Orban’s chief of staff, claims the 400 million euro ($476 million) figure is justified since the fence is “protecting all the citizens of Europe from the flood of illegal migrants.”

“If we talk about European solidarity, then we must also discuss the protection of borders. Solidarity must be applicable there, too,” Lazar said at a press conference. “That burden must also be shared.”…

Christian Group Sues SPLC And AmazonSmile Over ‘Hate Group’ Designation

AmazonSmile and GuildStar might want to reconsider using SPLC “hate group” designations.

Franklin Graham Facebook:

“A hate group? Can you believe this—The Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, AL, has labeled a number of Christian groups such as D. James Kennedy Ministries, and the Family Research Council run by my good friend Tony Perkins as “hate” groups. Why? Simply because they hold to the teaching of God’s Word on moral issues such as homosexuality and same-sex marriage.

They even speak disparagingly against Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a woman who was born into a Muslim family in Somalia and bravely speaks out against the dangers and oppression of women in Islam. Because she dares to speak against what Islam has done to her and other women, she is being accused of hate speech! Incredible.  As Kimberley Strassel said in the The Wall Street Journal, “If the SPLC doesn’t agree with your views, it tags you as a hater.” The SPLC has the funding of Apple CEO Tim Cook and financial giant J.P. Morgan, and is a media favorite. Who is the real hate group here?”

A venerable Christian ministry based in Fort Lauderdale recently saw its name listed on a CNN map of “all the active hate groups where you live,” as well as in local news reports as the No. 1 hate group in Florida.

D. James Kennedy Ministries shares sermons, devotionals, and religious liberty messages inspired by the late founder of Coral Ridge Presbyterian, a prominent Florida megachurch. In media coverage after Charlottesville, the Christian broadcaster was mapped alongside about 60 “hate groups” in the Sunshine State, using designations from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

SPLC

“Enough is enough,” said Frank Wright, president of D. James Kennedy Ministries, which filed a lawsuit against the SPLC on Wednesday. The organization also sued GuideStar and AmazonSmile for their use of the SPLC list…

The suit alleges that the ministry’s inclusion on the list of hate groups amounts to defamation—spreading false, harmful information—as well as a trademark violation, misrepresenting the ministry in order to drum up fundraising support. Wednesday’s filing made the same claims against the charity-research site GuideStar for promoting the SPLC designation, seeking an injunction against further use of the “hate group” label and damages from both organizations.

Guide Star

Wanting to call out “hateful rhetoric” during a “highly politicized moment,” GuideStar recently added the SPLC designations onto its profile pages—including for Christian nonprofits who stand for traditional marriage like the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), Liberty Counsel, the Family Research Council (FRC), and the American Family Association—then removed the hate labels after backlash in June. The controversy made many of these groups, their leaders, and their supporters even more upset over the prominence of the SPLC’s categorizations.

Amazon Smile

In its lawsuit, D. James Kennedy Ministries also alleges religious discrimination by Amazon’s charity partner program AmazonSmile, which makes a small donation to shoppers’ designated nonprofits. Since AmazonSmile uses the SPLC as one way to determine organizations’ eligibility, and the SPLC based its “anti-LGBT” designation on the ministry’s Christian convictions, the suit claims that D. James Kennedy Ministries was wrongly excluded from the program and possible donations due to its religious beliefs.

Part of their defense against calling opposition to same-sex marriage hateful comes from the US Supreme Court decision that made it legal. “Many who deem same-sex marriage to be wrong reach that conclusion based on decent and honorable religious or philosophical premises,” the court wrote, “and neither they nor their beliefs are disparaged here.” (The Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability quoted the same line in its response to GuideStar’s use of the hate group label for certain Christian organizations.)

Christian Group – Ruth Institute – Dropped By Online Payment Service Over SPLC ‘Hate’ Map

Anyone or any organization that cites the SPLC as a source immediately loses all credibility.

You may have heard the Ruth Institute referred to as a “Hate Group.” No one who creates those designations has ever contacted us, to inquire about our mission or values. We do not know how an organization becomes christened a “hate group” or how an organization gets off such a list. Ruth Institute

Vanco Payment Solutions has cut off services from a Louisiana-based Christian ministry, citing the Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Hate Map,” which accuses the ministry of promoting “hate, violence, harassment and/or abuse.”

Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and president of the Ruth Institute, told The Christian Post on Friday that her organization received a message Thursday around 2 p.m. that the online payment processing company had opted to discontinue their relationship.

The Ruth Institute is a Catholic nonprofit based in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and was “flagged by Card Brands as being affiliated with a product/service that promotes hate, violence, harassment and/or abuse,” Morse explained to CP.

“Merchants that display such attributes are against Vanco and Wells Fargo processing policies,” Vanco’s correspondence read.

Morse commented, “The Ruth Institute’s primary focus is family breakdown and its impact on children: understanding it, healing it, ending it. If this makes us a ‘hate group,’ so be it.”…

Morse made a point to say that what is ultimately driving the SPLC and now Vanco’s moves against the nonprofit — even though Vanco markets itself to churches and nonprofit groups on its website — is that the Ruth Institute espouses the historic Christian view of marriage and sexual ethics, a view now considered “anti-LGBT.”

Those accusing her of “hate” simply do not want to debate those ideas. Their beliefs are the common heritage of all Christian groups, and like-minded organizations that utilize Vanco’s services might want to reconsider, she said.  CP

Southern Poverty Law Center Transfers Millions in Cash to Offshore Entities

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a liberal non-profit Alabama-based tax-exempt charitable organization, has transferred cash to its “financial interests” in  foreign entities. The SPLC has sent large sums of money to accounts in the Cayman islands – the place known as a tax shelter.  SPLC has been making headlines over its anti-conservative “hate group” list and map.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit organization that has long been regarded as a glorified direct-mail scam that profits from hate-mongering, has come under fire yet again for its shady financial practices. This time, SPLC has been caught shuttling millions of dollars to offshore entities — a practice that’s considered a “huge red flag” by philanthropy experts, an investigative report by Joe Schoffstall of The Washington Free Beacon reveals.  TheFederalist

  • $960,000 in cash on Nov. 24, 2014 to the Tiger Global Private Investment Partners IX, L.P., a pooled
    investment fund in the Cayman Islands.
  •  $102,007 cash transfer on Dec. 24, 2014 to BPV-III Cayman X Limited, a foreign entity located in the Cayman Islands.
  • $157,574 in cash sent to BPV-III Cayman XI Limited on Dec. 31, 2014, an entity that lists the same PO Box address in Grand Cayman as the previous transfer.
  • On March 1, 2015, SPLC sent $2,200,000 to an entity incorporated in Canana Bay, Cayman Islands, according to Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) records and run by a firm firm based in Greenwich, Ct.
  • Another $2,200,000 cash transfer was made on the same day to another fund whose business is located at the same address as the previous fund in the Cayman Islands, according to SEC records.  Free Beacon

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a liberal, Alabama-based 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization that has gained prominence on the left for its “hate group” designations, pushes millions of dollars to offshore entities as part of its business dealings, records show.

Additionally, the nonprofit pays lucrative six-figure salaries to its top directors and key employees while spending little on legal services despite its stated intent of “fighting hate and bigotry” using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy.

The Southern Poverty Law Center is perhaps best known for its “hate map,” a collection of organizations the nonprofit deems “domestic hate groups” that lists mainstream conservative organizations alongside racist groups such as the Ku Klux Klan and is often referenced in the media. A gunman opened fire at the Washington, D.C., offices of the conservative Family Research Council in 2012 after seeing it listed as an “anti-gay” group on SPLC’s website.

The SPLC has turned into a fundraising powerhouse, recording more than $50 million in contributions and $328 million in net assets on its 2015 Form 990, the most recently available tax form from the nonprofit. SPLC’s Form 990-T, its business income tax return, from the same year shows that they have “financial interests” in the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, and Bermuda. No information is available beyond the acknowledgment of the interests at the bottom of the form. Free Beacon

EU Laws Prevented Spain Deporting Barcelona Terror Mastermind Abdelbaki Es Satty

The Spanish government was prevented from deporting Catalonia terror mastermind Abdelbaki Es Satty, because a judge determined he did not pose a “serious threat to national security”.

The Spanish government tried to throw Abdelbaki Es Satty, 42, out of the country in 2014 after he served a sentence for drug smuggling.

But a judge said two EU directives gave Es Satty the right to stay in the country – because he did not pose a “serious threat”….

A written judgment reveals judge Pablo de la Rubia blocked Es Satty’s deportation because of EU laws.

The judge highlighted two EU Council Directives – numbers 2003/109/EC and 2001/40/EC – which prevented the Madrid government from booting him out.

The EU directives say member states can only deport non-EU nationals who pose a “serious and present threat to public order or national security and safety”.

The judge ruled Es Satty was not a threat – because he had only been convicted of one offence and because he was making attempts to “integrate” into Spanish society…

Citing the two EU directives, judge De la Rubia wrote: “Although the conduct of the accused is serious, there is only one offence, which is old, and it is claimed he has laid down employment roots in Spain, which demonstrate his efforts at integration into Spanish society.”

The judge added that it would be “disproportionate” to deport the Moroccan.  ExpressUK

After the failed attempt to deport Es Satty:

After successfully appealing his deportation, the drug dealer applied for asylum, ultimately allowing him to travel freely throughout the EU’s borderless Schengen Zone, where he was known to have travelled to the EU capital in Brussels, Belgium, shortly before the terror bombings there in 2016…

Es Satty became the imam of the mosque in Ripoll, where he recruited youngs Muslims to commit August’s terror attacks.

The two vehicular ramming attacks in Las Ramblas, Barcelona, and Cambrils, which Es Satty masterminded, have so far claimed 16 lives and left over 150 people injured.

It could have killed substantially more had Es Satty not been killed when the butane gas canisters and acetone peroxide (TATP) he was stockpiling in a house in Alcanar exploded, preventing its use to potentially strike tourist and religious sites, including the Catholic Basilica of la Sagrada Familia.  BreitBart

Russia Seeks To Repatriate Russian Speaking Children in Iraq Whose Parents Joined ISIS

Iraq and Russian authorities to bring Russian speaking orphans to Russian.  The children’s pictures were shown on RT, some of the children were recognized by their relatives in Russia.   These children are traumatized, very young, and have no official papers.

According to Samih Beno, a Jordanian politician of Chechen origin, 48 minors, presumably children of Russian citizens, are now being held in different Iraqi shelters. Beno, also the head of the Chechen Republic’s Friends Association in Jordan, helped begin the evacuation and serves as a mediator during talks between representatives of different countries and international public organizations. No concrete date as to when minors could be brought back home can be set at the moment, as the process of their return is full of legal complications. T

o bring the children back, it must be confirmed they are all Russian citizens, which is not easy as the minors lack documents proving their identity and can hardly tell the authorities anything about themselves or their family aside from a name.  According to Beno, the kids will have to undergo a DNA test to prove they are relatives with people who claim so.  RT

Just this week, two more children, whose parents are believed to be Russian-speaking, were brought into the orphanage in Baghdad. However, getting the new arrivals to open up and talk has proved to be a difficult process.

Mouhamed allegedly speaks a mixture of Russian and Arabic, but says nothing to reveal his identity. He has an injury on one of his knees. Haddja says nothing at all. She is suffering from a wound to her ankle, in what appears to be a severe burn.

One of their mates said both children were brought into the orphanage at night, and she has not heard either of them speak Russian since. The team working on the ground is now trying to establish if the children are of Russian descent.  RT

Arriving In Russia

A four-year-old Chechen boy has been brought back to Russia after living with his jihadist father, who was fighting alongside ISIS in Mosul. Russian authorities are now seeking the return of several dozen such children from Iraqi orphanages.

Bilal Tagirov’s mother hadn’t seen him for two years. In October 2015, the child was kidnapped from his native Chechnya by his father, Khasan Tagirov, who went to fight alongside Islamic State jihadists, first in Syria and then in Iraq.

Two sisters – Hadija and Fatima

RT correspondent Murad Gazdiev traveled to the Russian republic of Dagestan, after grandparents of two sisters – Hadija and Fatima came forward. Both said they hadn’t slept for three days since they saw the video with the girls.

The girls were taken by their parents to Mosul some two years ago, then both parents were killed in a drone strike, leaving the children orphans, Gazdiev said, citing the girls’ grandparents.

“Our children secretly left us. How could they take away their own helpless kids? If you are leaving why do you need to traumatize the kids? I still don’t understand it,” the grandfather of the girls said passionately.

“We are waiting for our girls,” their grandmother added.  RT

“Someone began shooting at the house. After that they threw grenades. And this is when the fire started,” she says. “Then I was hit by shrapnel. And this is how blood spilled from my head. Lots of blood,” she said, touching scars on her face, apparently left by shrapnel.

Mariam says that her mother was shot dead and she doesn’t know where her father is.

“There were snipers across the river. The snipers shot at my mother right here,” Mariam says. “They shot her in the arm. The head and the arm. And then she died.”

Hours after RT aired the report about Mariam, a woman from the Russian Republic of Dagestan contacted the channel, claiming that the girl in the video was her granddaughter.

“It’s my granddaughter!” the woman identified as Patimatzagra said through tears, adding that her daughter’s name was Madina. She was in shock to hear the girl say that her mother had died…

Mariam’s parents took the girl and left Dagestan in 2014, the woman said. From time to time Madina sent her photos and videos of Mariam and two boys, presumably, Mariam’s siblings. However, she stopped answering calls in January this year.RT

Mariam had problems even pronouncing her own name when she was discovered by RT in an Iraqi orphanage earlier in August.

The girl suffered immense psychological and physical trauma after her mother was killed by a sniper in front of her eyes and she herself was hit by shrapnel.

However, she was seen smiling for the first time in a long while as she was surrounded by the caring family in Grozny.

Earlier in August, a four-year-old Chechen boy, Bilal Tagirov, returned to Russia after living with his jihadist father, who was fighting for Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Mosul.

Around 50 children of Russian citizens currently remain in various shelters, Mikhail Fedotov, the head of the Council for Civil Society and Human Rights, told RIA Novosti.

Their return home is a complicated affair due to the kids lacking passports, bureaucratic hurdles and the difficult security situation in Iraq.  RT
