The taxpayers of Minneapolis will foot a $152,000 bill for security services given to three members of the City Council who received death threats following their calls to defund the police in the wake of George Floyd’s death. According to an investigative report by the local Fox 9 news outlet, the three council members, Andrea Jenkins (Ward 8), Phillipe Cunningham (Ward 4), and Alondra Cano (Ward 9), were granted a security detail shortly after Memorial Day, which cost the city about $4,500 a day and ended on June 29. Two security firms Aegis and BelCom were reportedly hired because police officials were overwhelmed with security needs following George Floyd’s death in police custody and the demonstrations that ensued for weeks after. “This security service was intended to be temporary and bridge to other security measures implemented by council members themselves,” a City spokesperson said. The City Council does not need to approve any expenses unless they exceed $175,000. The costs were therefore approved by City Coordinator Mark Ruff. “The contracts are within existing department budget limits,” the spokesperson said. “The contracts will not impact future tax rates,” they added. The Mayor’s office could not be reached for comment, but a spokesperson for the City said that the cost of the security detail a day, was roughly the same for the taxpayer as Minneapolis Police Department services. The threats on the council members’ lives were reportedly made after all three members were outspoken about defunding the police. The largely White police force has had a difficult time in gaining the public’s trust, and a proposal to defund the police and replace the force with “a department of community safety and violence prevention” is being reviewed. A public hearing has been scheduled for Wednesday for members of the community to ask questions or voice their concerns. According to a Fox 9 news report from earlier this week, 150 Minneapolis police officers are seeking disability for post-traumatic stress following the George Floyd protests. A total of 25 police officers have quit since the demonstrations and an additional 25 have sought extended leave.
This is so rich.. These idiot Minneapolis council members had personal security AFTER they pandered to the defund police mob. They probably don’t realize the breathtaking hypocrisy of that. But, hey.. They’re liberal Dems. So, I’m repeating myself. As for that comment about the mostly white police force there.. Yeah? And? Therefore what? The Chief is black. And, he’s a standup, good guy trying to do the right thing in his city, in spite of the idiocy and lack of support from those fools on the city council.
A jihadist who pleaded guilty to going on a stabbing spree at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota entered the U.S. as a legal immigrant with foreign relatives. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) confirmed to Breitbart News in a statement that 20-year-old Mahad Abdiaziz Adbiraham entered the U.S. as a “derivative of a relative,” which is immigration lingo used to describe a foreign-born resident who came to the country either as the immediate child or spouse of a legal immigrant. Adbiraham, according to KSTP, pleaded guilty last week to stabbing two men in a Macy’s dressing room at the Mall of America, an attack that the jihadist admitted in court was inspired by the Islamic State (ISIS). In a statement to the courtroom, Adbiraham said the attack was a “call for jihad by the Chief of Believer, Abu-bakr Al-baghdadi, may Allah protect him, and by the Mujahiden of the Islamic State,” adding: “I understand that the two men I stabbed know and have explained the reason for my attack, and I am here reaffirming that it was indeed an act of Jihad in the way of Allah.” The Mall of America jihadist also threatened Americans, saying in the statement that the country would not be considered safe until its “war with Islam” ended. The jihadist attack by the foreign-born resident is just the last ISIS-inspired attack by a legal immigrant to the U.S. Last year, Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud, 25, who entered the U.S. from Somalia and obtained citizenship, trained with a terrorist organization in Syria, plotting to return to the U.S. to carry out the attack,
What a piece of garbage… This is yet another example of why it is absolutely critical that exercise “extreme vetting” of potential new legal immigrants. Coming to America is a privilege; NOT a right. And, we should only allow those who want to assimilate into our unique American culture, speak/learn English, and be a positive contributor to our economy; not be a parasite.
A recent outbreak of measles is the latest public health problem among Somalis who live in metropolitan Minneapolis-St.Paul, Minnesota, home to the largest Somali community in the country. Measles now joins active tuberculosis as a public health problem within Minnesota’s Somali community. “During the five years between 2010 and 2014, 732 cases of active TB were diagnosed in Minnesota. Of these, 81 percent, or 593, were foreign-born. Of foreign-born cases, 50 percent, or 296, were refugees, according to “The Epidemiology of Tuberculosis in Minnesota, 2010-2014,” a report published by the Minnesota Department of Health,” Breitbart News noted in October. “Twenty-nine percent of the 593 foreign-born cases of active TB diagnosed in Minnesota [between 2012 and 2015], or 161, were attributed to Somali born migrants. Almost all Somali migrants to the United States have arrived under the federal refugee resettlement program.”
Clearly these refugees weren’t properly vetted and/or screened. This is what happens when we just open the doors to so-called “refugees” from wherever, and don’t screen for communicable diseases, etc. Obama and his foolish policies are directly responsible for this. Thanks a lot, Obama! Moron.. To read the rest of this article, click on the text above.
One of every five refugees resettled in Minnesota by the federal government tested positive for latent tuberculosis in 2014, according to the state’s Department of Health. Only 4 percent of the general population in the United States tested positive for latent tuberculosis in the most recent report provided by the Centers for Disease Control. The April 2016 edition of the Refugee Health Quarterly, published by the Minnesota Department of Health reports that: Minnesota had 150 cases of TB in 2015, compared to 147 cases in 2014 (a 2 percent increase). The most common risk factor for TB cases in Minnesota is being from a country where TB is common. TB screening is offered to all refugees during the domestic refugee health exam. In 2014, 22 percent of refugees screened tested positive for LTBI (latent tuberculosis infection). 26 percent of all foreign born cases of tuberculosis in Minnesota were from people born in Somalia. Somalians almost exclusively enter the state through the refugee resettlement program. More than 70,000 refugees have been resettled in the United States annually for the past three decades by the federal government. It’s not just tuberculosis being brought in by these resettled refugees. Measles, whooping cough, diptheria, and other diseases that were on their way to eradication are also coming in across the borders of the United States. A recent outbreak of measles in Memphis, Tennessee, a center for refugee resettlement, began at a local mosque..
And yet we continue to import these problems en mass.. We are currently over $13 TRILLION dollars in debt, and growing. We cannot afford to be the world’s charity. Between this, and the invasion of illegal aliens crossing our southern border (with the willing support of our idiot-in-chief President), our infrastructure is on the verge of collapse.
