H/T Refugee Resettlement Watch
for This is insane! Taxpayers pay rent for Somalis who feel the need to visit Somalia (for months!)
Virtually all Somalis who live in the US came here (we are told) as poor refugees (there are going on 200,000 of them). So how persecuted and fearful of returning home are they that much travel back and forth to Africa and the taxpayers of Minneapolis cover most of their rent while they are gone!
This links to Housing board grants rent relief to tenants on extended absences

Public housing residents in Minneapolis will no longer need to pay their normal monthly rent when travel abroad erases their income, a change particularly sought by East African immigrants…Abdi Warsame, a City Council member, told the board that the policy in place for the past five years works a particular hardship on elderly East Africans who must save for long periods if they want to visit their homelands. He said that many receive federal Supplemental Security Income, which is halted when the recipient is outside the United States…The change will mean that residents will pay only the $75 minimum per month,
acidly enquires what kind of hardship is consistent with paying the airline fares for this trip.
In recent years Somalia’s primary contribution to the international economy has been piracy
. This tradition has clearly been transmitted to Minnesota. Looting the taxpayer
and otherwise gaming the system
appear to major occupations.
But this story (no doubt inadvertently reveals) a key fact: the Somali situation no longer warrants Somalis being granted refugee status.
Obviously Somalis in Minneapolis Public Housing are not afraid to return home. And as I noted in Kenya Wants To Deport Its 425,000 Somali “Refugees”. Are They Coming Here?
this expulsion by their long-suffering neighbor has the acquiescence of the United Nations High Commission on Refugees.

reports Yemen Deports 720 African Invaders

In more evidence that the “Somali refugee” invasion of Europe and North America is a hoax, the Arab state of Yemen has just deported 720 Africans back to their homeland…The move by the Yemeni government—which is fighting its own war against a U.S. and U.K.-backed uprising—forms part of a United Nations High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR) “Somali voluntary repatriation program” which was started in 2014…In other words, Somalia is regarded as safe even by the UNHCR—and there is no justification for that nation’s citizens to claim “asylum” in Europe or anywhere else.
See More than 100 Somali refugees arrive home in Mogadishu from Kenya
from UNHCR’s own website.
So why not shut down the ongoing Somali influx and start repatriating these useless pests?
Because, as Peter Brimelow observed yesterday
, the real purpose of the American refugee program is to elect a new people
As is American Immigration policy generally, a fact I reported Refugee Resettlement Watch
