    Before Abdusalom left for a meeting with Poland’s Internal Security Agency (ISA) on May 7, he kissed his wife goodbye. It was not his first encounter with agents from the domestic counterintelligence agency, who had called and questioned him previously. Since Maksym S., a Ukrainian convert to Islam, was arrested in December 2019 on suspicion of planning a terrorist attack on a shopping mall in the eastern city of Pulawy, the agency was pursuing other Muslims who may have been in contact with the man.....Under Poland’s controversial 2016 anti-terrorism law, the authorities can expel any foreigner suspected of involvement in...

    A post-lockdown surge in sacrilegeROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - Earlier this year, Church Militant reported on a wave of anti-Christian vandalism sweeping across Italy, "in a binge of violence unparalleled in recent memory." Months later, a post-lockdown upsurge in these episodes — widely underreported by the media — quickly spread across the country. Despite the alarming increase in such offenses, the majority of cases were reported solely in the local press, as denounced by Catholic website Fatti Sentire: "Christianophobia isn't only about Christian persecution in the Middle East; it's more than enough to read our local headlines, usually written in small print...

    Ali Hassan’s father, a young man who stabbed two people in a meat-cleaver attack outside the former Paris office of controversial Charlie Hebdo magazine last week, said to himself ” proud ”of his son. In an interview with online channel Naya Pakistan, the father, whose name is withheld, said his son had “done a great job” and was “very happy” with the attack. The French government condemned Friday’s stabbing in front of the former office of the satirical magazine as an act of “Islamist terrorism”. The man, previously identified as Ali Hassan, seriously injured two employees of the Premieres Ligne...

    NPR Cries..... A federal appeals court panel ruled on Monday that the Trump administration can end humanitarian protections for some 300,000 immigrants living in the United States, clearing the way for their potential deportation starting next year. The 9th Circuit Appeals Court's decision affects citizens from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan, many of whom have lived in the U.S. for decades, have U.S.-born children and are considered essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic. At issue is the termination of Temporary Protected Status, a form of humanitarian relief created by Congress and administered by the Department of Homeland Security. TPS...
  • USA provided greater religious freedom for European immigrants

    Christianity is the foundation of our Western Society. However, some deny its historical and current benefits. Teleios evaluated societal measures influencing wellbeing in religious groups immigrating for greater religious freedom from Europe to the 13 British colonies that would become the USA. Teleios tested the hypothesis if living in a freer society and being able to express the Christian religion improved potential measures for wellbeing. We found strong evidence that Christians who immigrated from Europe developed societies built upon biblically based principles that offer enhanced educational, governmental, religious and economic benefits. Such societies furnish their citizens the opportunity to live...

    Swedish police and civilian workers at a police station in the no-go Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby will receive police escorts to and from the building to maintain their safety. The workers at the newly built police station in Rinkeby have previously expressed concerns that locals, criminals, and youths might follow them home or slash their tyres. As the new station is set to open, police have decided to enact evening patrols to escort workers to and from the station. Jörgen Ohlsson, the station’s project manager, said the patrols could include escorting workers to the local metro or standing watch outside,...

    Patrick Rooney, Founder of Old School™, laments the slide of heroic white, conservative men into "grumpy old men." Meanwhile, it is often taking black men, black women, and black woman IMMIGRANTS to inspire new blood into the movement, too often leaving "grumpy old men" in the dust. One of the reasons for the existence of Old School™ is to "teach old dogs new tricks"—to re-inspire "grumpy old men" to return to being the "happy warriors" of old. It is not too late—for grumpy old men or America!

    Viral video out of Seattle shows a mob of African immigrants assaulting a white man in the street while screaming racial epithets and proudly flying the flag of the terrorist separatist group the Oromo Liberation Front. The mob is seen swarming the man -- outnumbering him around 7 to 1 -- and punching him repeatedly and kicking him while he's on the ground as shocked onlookers scream in horror. The woman who filmed the incident is heard shouting at the top of her lungs to try and get the mob to stop and saying: "They're beating him! He's a white...

    As a by-product of the worldwide virus, the flow of migrants between nations, for now, has slowed to a trickle. Still, the presumption that anyone who seeks to control immigration, and to maintain the key facets of their culture, is automatically racist or xenophobic is beyond absurd. In 2015, Europe received one million migrants on top of a massive influx that had already arrived. The 500 million population of Europe can, perhaps, absorb such waves but many communities are unduly impacted. One long-standing community in Germany, totaling 102 people, braced for 750 asylum seekers.This bureaucratic blunder represented nothing less than...

    Immigration Will Go Bust Without $1.2B Bailout By Charles Benavidez - Jul 02, 2020, 6:00 PM CDT United States With the Trump administration on a continued anti-immigration tear as a campaign-hedge for November 2020 elections, and as the COVID-19 pandemic rampages on, the American immigration system—largely funded by visa and green card applications—is basically running out of money. Now, it may have to temporarily lay off thousands of workers, and thus potentially bring immigration to a near halt from its already painfully slow crawl.

    On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln headed on horseback through the streets of Gettysburg to deliver his most famous speech. He rode past the impressive gatehouse at the Evergreen Cemetery to the newly dug graves of Union soldiers that lay beyond it. The gatehouse was the home of a German immigrant family that had endured the battle and spearheaded the first burials after it ended.

    Fifty-one percent of liberals and 45 percent of Democrats told a pollster that too few of their fellow Americans are willing to fill construction, technology, hospitality, and other service jobs, regardless of pay. From June 23 to June 28, Rasmussen asked its panel of 1,500 likely voters: People say immigrants fill construction, technology, hospitality and other service jobs that Americans don’t want. Are there Americans who would take those jobs if pay and working conditions were improved or are there just not enough Americans willing to do that kind of work? Most Americans recognized that their fellow citizens would work...

    Amid the pandemic, the SpaceX launch should inspire us to be risk-takers, trying new things and starting new ventures. We can only achieve great things if we don't let fear dictate how we live our lives. Two American astronauts, Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken, will strap themselves in the Dragon capsule, which sits on top of the Falcon 9 rocket — both built by Elon Musk’s company SpaceX — and depart for the International Space Station on May 27.This extraordinary event embodies much historic significance. The Falcon 9 rocket will be launched from the same launch pad at the Kennedy...

    The Democrats' new $3 trillion coronavirus relief legislation expands direct payment eligibility to many more people than last time, including undocumented immigrants who pay taxes. Each eligible person would receive $1,200 stimulus checks, up to $6,000 per household, according to the newly released legislation. For example, a married couple filing taxes jointly would receive $2,400. They would get an additional $1,200 for each of their dependents, up to three, for a maximum benefit of $6,000. Under the first round of checks, eligible individuals got a one-time payment of up to $1,200, or $2,400 per couple, plus $500 for each child...

    The flight from Italy was one of the last arrivals that day at the Stockholm airport. A Swedish couple in their 50s walked up and loaded their skis into Razzak Khalaf's taxi. It was early March and concerns over the coronavirus were already present, but the couple, both coughing for the entire 45-minute journey, assured Khalaf they were healthy and just suffering from a change in the weather. Four days later, the Iraqi immigrant got seriously ill with COVID-19. Still not able to return to work, Khalaf is part of the growing evidence that those in immigrant communities in the...

    NEW YORK - Ulises García went from being a waiter to working at a laundromat. Yelitza Esteva used to do manicures and now delivers groceries. Maribel Torres swapped cleaning homes for sewing masks. The coronavirus pandemic has devastated sectors of the economy dominated by immigrant labor: Restaurants, hotels, office cleaning services, in-home childcare and hair and nail salons, among others, have seen businesses shuttered as nonessential. The Migration Policy Institute found that 20% of the U.S. workers in vulnerable industries facing layoffs are immigrants, even though they only make up 17% of the civilian workforce. And some of those immigrants,...

    The Supreme Court is making it harder for noncitizens who are authorized to live permanently in the United States to argue they should be allowed to stay in the country if they've committed crimes. The decision Thursday split the court 5-4 along ideological lines. The decision came in the case of Andre Barton, a Jamaican national and green card holder. In 1996, when he was a teenager, he was present when a friend fired a gun at the home of Barton's ex-girlfriend in Georgia. And in 2007 and 2008, he was convicted of drug possession in the state. His crimes...
