Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
December 3, 2015
It has been an interesting first week in the month of December when it comes to issues of crime and immigration here in the Northwest part of the Untied States of America.
This week we will look at the topic of Syrian refugees being relocated to the states of Washington, Idaho and Oregon and across the country.
According to United States State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration, the country since October 1, 2014 has admitted 2,089 Syrian refuges. A total of 2,280 Syrian refugees have been admitted into the country since the Syrian civil war began in March 2011.
The three Northwest states that have received these Syrian refugees; the states are Washington, 38 refugees; Idaho, 37 refugees, and Oregon, 6 refugees.
Let us profile one of the six Syrian refugees relocated to Oregon.
Syrian national Ali Turki Ali, age 34, was relocated to Eugene, Oregon in late June of 2015.
Mr. Ali studied mathematics at Aleppo University, earning his undergraduate degree in 2005 and a graduate degree in 2008.
After completing his university education he was employed as a high school math teacher.
Ali’s family religion is Sunni Islam.
Some back ground on Ali that should trouble your radio listeners; he served in the Syrian Army from September 2008 to March 2010.
To avoid further military service, Ali paid a human trafficker 5,000 lira (approximately $20 in U.S dollars) to help him illegally enter Syria’s Northern neighbor Turkey.
Before being allowed to enter the U.S. from Turkey, Ali Turki Ali’s back ground was allegedly vetted by United Nations (U.N.) and U.S. State Department officials.
After his vetting by U.N. officials, while still in Turkey, he was interviewed by International Catholic Migration Commission (ICMC).
Once in the U.S., Ali was interview at the Los Angeles International airport by the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
To get to this country, Ali’s $983 plane flight from Istanbul to Portland was paid for by the Lutheran Immigration & Refugee Service.
There are significant questions I can’t answer about the history of allowing Syrian refugees into our country:
First question, how effective is the interview process by the United Nations and U.S. State Department at preventing potential Syrian terrorists from entering the country?
Second question, why are “International Catholic Migration Commission” and “Lutheran Immigration & Refugee Service” helping Syrian nationals like Ali Turki Ali, a man of fighting age a trained soldier, into the United States?
Some fast facts:
Big picture President Barack Hussein Obama has made the commitment to receive 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States starting October 1st of this year.
Oregon’s unelected Governor Kate Brown has openly welcomed Syrian refugees into the state.
Lars, the first week of December and we present another criminal alien or immigration report for Lars Larson Show FM 101.1 radio listeners.
