DHS Extends Temporary Protected Status for Somalis

ABC News, May 2, 2012

The Department of Homeland Security is once again renewing the temporary protected status for some Somali immigrants living in the United States.

The protected status, first issued in 2001, will now expire in March 2014, meaning that Somali immigrants can stay in the U.S. until then. Homeland Security says their status is being extended because of an ongoing armed conflict and severe drought in Somalia.

    If that’s the case, if they’re waiting around for Somalians to stop bing-banging each other, then they’ll be waiting until 12th of Never, Kingdom Come.

    And we’ll have to import even more of that “armed conflict” here.

    This has always been the case since Thomas Jefferson’s time! Nothing has changed. So does that mean we are going to import the entire nation here? Apparently so!

    Somali’s have devolved even further since the time of Thomas Jefferson and the bombing of the Barbary states (known today as Somali), hence the US Navy was born. There was a reason for it. Instead of bombing them back into yesteryear, the idiots running DC import them here?
     
    From the Halls of Montezuma, To the shores of Tripoli…… What an utter shame. Thomas Jefferson must be rolling in his grave at us.

      The Barbary Corsairs, sometimes called Ottoman Corsairs or Berber Pirates, were pirates and privateers who operated from North Africa, based primarily in the ports of Tunis, Tripoli and Algiers.

      We are not devolving fast enough into third world status.  Somialians will speed that up.

    Somalians just may be the worst immigrants; they’re Black African as well as Muslims.

    So you get terrorism and female mutilation on top of the usual murders, rapes and robberies.

      You forgot polygamy and honor killings.

    Who needs scientists from Europe? We can just teach high school science to our immigrants from Africa, Haiti, Latin America and Samoa.

     They’ll turn out to be the equivalent of Keppler, Von Braun, Fermi, Einstein, Pasteur, etc. After all, the races are all identical.

    “There are exceptions.”

    Surely there are a few good Somalis.  But how many rotten, parasite-infested apples must we consume before we find a good one in the barrel?

    Somalia is not the barren wasteland it is portrayed as by the UNHCR.

    Just give them time!

    I think you’ll find, Mr “JewOnAmren”, that Sir Isaac Newton, when a young man, once saw a black person whilst travelling through Spain in 1665!

    From then on it was discovery after discovery after discovery….

    Don’t you know anything?!…

  • There is nothing “temporary” about temporary protected status for “immigrants” once they are here. They never leave, as temporary extends into perpetuity. In fact, I am relatively certain the adjective temporary was implemented to conceal the true intent behind temporary protected status, which to allow more third-worlders into this country.

  • Like America doesn’t have ENOUGH BLACKS?

    We have to IMPORT MORE?
    Oh…I forgot who’s in da White Hizzay.
    And who voted him in FIRST
    and who he’ll NEED to vote him in again

    HE NEEDS MORE BLACKS TO VOTE FOR HIM
