Importing both sides of Middle East gang wars into OUR communities

“Prosecutors have charged a teenager in the shooting death of 25-year-old Mustafa Ali last week, in the latest sign that an ongoing conflict between rival East African gangs is spilling into north Minneapolis.”

Those are the words of a Star Tribune article from last week describing the latest gang-on-gang attacks within the Somali community in Minneapolis. Unfortunately, gang-on-gang violence is not exactly a newsworthy story in America, but what should concern us is that we are importing both sides of pre-existing gang wars from half way around the world. All those who are promoting mass migration and refugee resettlement from every war-torn Middle Eastern country don’t want you to study what has already happened in our own communities as a result of their policies.

In the case of the aforementioned homicide of Mustafa Ali, it’s believed to have stemmed from a fight between the “Somali Outlaws” and “1627 Boys” gangs. Unfortunately, this is nothing new for the Minneapolis area, at least not since it became Little Mogadishu beginning in the 1990s.

Imagine building a beautiful community somewhere in the suburbs and then having a handful of neighbors use your homeowner’s association dues to bring in scores of violent Bloods and Crips members from downtown. Well, on the national and international levels, that is what the elites have done to taxpayers by bringing in so many security problems from the Middle East without the input of local communities.

We’ve brought in roughly 130,000 Somalis since 1993, most of them through the refugee program. At least 30,000 initially settled in the Minneapolis area, and their population is now close to 74,000. They have turned out to be one of the most problematic immigration groups we’ve admitted in recent years, with the local U.S. attorney and a federal judge observing a pervasive terror recruiting problem in the greater Minneapolis area with “its tentacles spread out.”
