2nd Minnesota man reportedly killed fighting for ISIS in Syria - KMSP-TV

I think its now time we start saying "stay home" to refugees from the middle east/north africa who want to come here. its pretty scary how these people become radicalized, even more scary knowing these are fellow Minnesotans.

Yeah not to mention embarrassing as the title of this glares across every major news source. What's being done to prevent these type of people into Minnesota? That's what I want to know.

there's a youtube out there I saw that shows a third terrorist wearing a Cooper "Hawks" sweat shirt. Seems to me that the issue we have is not with Muslims but with the Robbinsdale School District high school curriculum

Why are snipers in the Free Syrian Army attired in sweatshirts bearing the logo of a high school in Minnesota? |

I clearly remember living in Minneapolis (I moved back for a little bit) in the fall of '96 and there were Middle Eastern and Somalian refugees everywhere. Overnight there was a lot of tension between black residents and the immigrants, and I can understand why. First came the demands for their children to pray - within the Minneapolis Public Schools - many times per day, calls for 911 services by Islamic women who wouldn't even open the door if the medic or cop was male, and countless other things. I want to know WHO SIGNED OFF ON THIS. Some organization brought them here and sponsored them or were supposed to. Bringing them here with no money, no education and no transferrable work skills while warehousing them at Riverside Plaza only for their children to grow up robbing U of M students does not count as sponsoring. As it stands, many of these people should have been deported the moment a felony popped up on their record. However, because some of these countries have such an unstable or no government whatsoever, we couldn't deport them if we wanted to. And they know this.

If it were my decision to make I would go after and nail whoever approved the program to bring these people over here 20 years ago. I don't remember if it was Lutheran Social Services or what. But whoever it was, thanks a lot for ruining a good portion of southeast Minneapolis and importing yet another group of people who are never held accountable for anything, use up resources and housing that should be prioritized to Minnesota residents, and creating a community here that is so ghettoized that they never have to assimilate or adhere to anything that the United States values.

My guess is the strategy for dealing with this at home is the same as the strategy for dealing with this abroad. We don't have one.

The Lutheran Church brought a bunch of Somalian refugees to a small town I used to live in in Nebraska. Now between the Somalians and the illegal hispanics the nice small town has gone to crap.

The federal government purposefully relocates Somalians to Minnesota because you all are supposed to be midwestern and nice and orderly and therefore able to provide the services to them without too much hassle.

Just as it relocates section 8 renters to better suburbs and neighborhoods in order to spread crime out thin rather than have it concentrated in just one area.


But, reject me if you like, continue to believe in the goodness of America and the government if you so choose.

Sadly, the guy was born in MPLS and converted to Islam.....probably because of treatment by people here in MN. A child becomes what you tell them they are.
