U.S. Planning To Deport 4,000 Somalis

For years Somalis were not sent back even when they committed one crime after another.

 

“We learned through immigration sources that the total number of the Somalis that are in the books of [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] to be removed are close to 4,000,” Ahmed Isse Awad told VOA’s Somali service Saturday. “Most of them are not in detention centers.”

Since Somalia’s embassy in Washington reopened in November 2015, the ambassador said, about 170 Somali immigrants who either ran afoul of U.S. law or had their asylum applications rejected have been deported to Mogadishu, the Somali capital.

Most of those previously deported had applied for but been denied political asylum in the U.S., he added. Another group of Somali applicants whose requests for asylum have been denied are now in detention centers or prisons, awaiting deportation…

One of those arrested last month, Awad said, was a 50-year-old Somali man who identified himself as second in command of Somalia’s National Security Service. He had previously been deported to Somalia in 1996.

“According to ICE, he came back to the U.S. in 1997 under a different name,” the Somali envoy said. “In 2014, he was jailed for 11 months for forgery and drug-related crimes, and since then has committed several other felonies.” VOA

Libya’s PM Fayez al-Sarraj Earns Millions A Year From The Criminal Trafficking Of Libyans To Europe

Human traffickers.

Libya’s Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj earns €300m a year with the illegal trafficking of Libyans to Europe.

A new report has found Prime Minister of Libya, Fayez al-Sarraj, is directly benefiting from the migration from his country to Europe.

The research has suggested 300 million euros per year are generated from human trafficking and that amount represents the most substantial revenue to the cities controlled by Sarraj.

Admiral Enrico Credendino, the commander of the mission Eunavfor Med, and author of the report said the smuggling of human beings guarantees a turnover of between 275 and 325 million euro per year.

Mr. Credendino concluded the migration is a constant income for the Libyan leader while it remains a great strain on Italy.

He said: “As long as we continue accepting everyone arriving on boats, Sarraj will continue receiving money from criminal groups that push migrants to our shores.”

Commissioner Avramopoulos said: “If we compare Italy and Greece, said the Commissioner yesterday, up to 80% of migrants crossing the Aegean Sea are refugees, while 80 percent of those who arrived in Italy from the Mediterranean are illegal.”

The majority of migrant arriving in Italy are not from Syria, but from countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Senegal, Gambia and Mali, experts have said. Express UK

NGO ships smuggling African migrants to Italy, providing shuttle service from Libyan Coast. Motive – Money?

Human traffickers contact the Italian coast guard in advance to receive support and to pick up their dubious cargo. NGO ships are directed to the “rescue spot” even as those to be rescued are still in Libya. The 15 ships that we observed are owned or leased by NGOs have regularly been seen to leave their Italian ports, head south, stop short of reaching the Libyan coast, pick up their human cargo, and take course back 260 miles to Italy even though the port of Zarzis in Tunis is just 60 miles away from the rescue spot. gefira

Refugee Inc.

Across Europe, ‘migrants’ are seen as a financial opportunity.

ORS Service, a Swiss company running migrant reception centres, is doing well. Run by London-based private equity firm Equistone Partners Europe Ltd, it now operates in Germany and Austria and recorded $99 million in revenue last year. ORS Service has thrived on Europe’s inability to cope with the refugee crisis. Independent UK

Map: Sanctuary Cities, Counties and States In U.S.

The Center for Immigration Studies has found over 200  “sanctuary cities” in the U.S. , which follow polices that allow them to avoid cooperating with federal immigration law enforcement authorities.

More than 200 cities, counties and states across the United States are considered sanctuary cities. These state and local jurisdictions have policies, laws, executive orders, or regulations allowing them to avoid cooperating with federal immigration law enforcement authorities. These “cities” ignore federal law authorizing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to administratively deport illegal aliens without seeking criminal warrants or convictions from federal, state, or local courts.

Although federal law requires the cooperation, the Department of Justice has never sued or taken any measure, including denying federal funds, against a jurisdiction. On the contrary, the present administration has made it difficult for the states and localities which choose to aid in enforcing immigration laws. Federal law was labelled voluntary by the administration in a November 2014 policy memorandum signed by the Homeland Security Secretary.

“Federal law was labelled voluntary” following and enforcing Federal law seems to be voluntary.  However, if a city does enforce Federal law “the present administration has made it difficult for the states and localities which choose to aid in enforcing immigration laws.’
