Connecting the Dots in San Jose

From: John Dunbar:

"'Do not assume they can open a door just because it has a doorknob,' [refugee bureaucrat] Chanoff said."

Here's an interesting article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and found at the Freerepublic site regarding importing 12,000 illiterate and perhaps untrainable Somali Bantus:

A quote:

"How does one begin to teach the relevance of time and dates and schedules? What about sensitizing people to the nuances of shopping and cooking and eating, when they won't recognize food in the supermarkets? How does one prevent children from sticking a finger into an electric socket or garbage disposal, falling down stairs, scalding themselves with a faucet or straying into the road?"

I just couldn't believe this was happening after 9/11. We will never learn.

VDARE.COM note: next week we publish an analysis by Thomas Allen of the Somali Bantu scandal. You'll never guess who didn't want them!
