Refugees have brought not only terrorists and tuberculosis to Fargo, but a huge price tag.
Barack Obama continues to send a large number of refugees to Fargo, North Dakota, although its citizens have been sounding the alarm.
North Dakota leads the nation in refugees per capita. The U.S. State Department’s Refugee Processing Center database shows that refugees have been sent to Fargo from at least 26 different countries.
Obama recently announced that he was accelerating the timeline for the vetting process of Syrian refugees, from 18 months to three months, in order to meet his target this year of 10,000 Syrian refugees resettled in the United States.
He has failed to address concerns that ISIS is using the refugee program to sneak into America.
In the previous four years, slightly more than 2,300 Syrian refugees were admitted to the United States, almost all of them Muslims. Many of the refugees are arriving from Jordan, where recent medical studies have shown high TB rates found among Syrian refugees.
These refugees pose a public health risk, as well as a security concern, and the current vetting process for both is questionable.
On September 18th, it was revealed that a Somali refugee who attacked mall shoppers in St. Cloud, Minnesota (2 hours away), was originally resettled in Fargo.
Dahir Adan stabbed 10 shoppers while yelling references to Allah. He went to St. Cloud via Fargo, where he was resettled after arriving with his family from a United Nations refugee camp in Kenya. ISIS released a statement calling Dahir Adan a “soldier” of the Islamic State.
Dahir Adan’s older brother, 27-year-old Abdullah Adan, is still in Fargo in the Cass County Jail, where he is being held on felony drug charges.
Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota, the agency the government hired to resettle refugees in Fargo, has refused to release further information about the terrorist.
Fargo City Commissioner Dave Piepkorn wants to uncover the secretive process by which Fargo has been burdened with Third World refugees over the last two decades, and he wants to get to the bottom of what these refugees are costing the city.
The commission is now demanding a full accounting of the program’s costs. Piepkorn’s proposal to direct the city staff to total up the costs of refugee resettlement in Fargo and Cass County was approved 5-0 by the city commission.
Fargo has 40 different types of language interpreters in its schools. The language and cultural barriers of integrating such large numbers of refugees also impacts the emergency 9-1-1 center, local police and jails, hospitals and clinics, housing and transportation.
A health officer for the Fargo Cass Public Health Department confirmed four active cases of tuberculosis were found among refugees in Fargo.
Piepkorn stated that if the federal government didn’t provide help to offset the costs, then the city would consider filing a lawsuit.
Hillary Clinton would continue to bury the states with refugees if elected.
During a September 20th appearance on CBS’ Face the Nation, Clinton was asked if Obama’s plan to increase the number allowed into the United States to 10,000 was enough. (The United States had accepted about 2,000 in 2015.) Clinton said:
“Look, we’re facing the worst refugee crisis since the end of World War II, and I think the United States has to do more, and I would like to see us move from what is a good start with 10,000 to 65,000 and begin immediately to put into place the mechanisms for vetting the people that we would take in.”
Increasing the number of Syrian refugees by another 550 percent next year, as Clinton proposes, would not only make a vetting process unmanageable, but it would devastate the economy and health of American citizens.
