Fugitive Somali Muslim Murders Native American Family in North Dakota

One of the issues we raised in the Jan. NER article, What Rep. Peter King Could Do About Radicalization of American Muslims was the broken humanitarian refugee program run by our State Department, Department of Homeland Security, Immigration Control and Enforcement agency and Department of Health and Human services, Office of Refugee Resettlement. We drew attention to the example of Somali Muslims who have posed terrorist threats here and abroad, rejected assimilation and lived off of taxpayer-funded welfare and MEDICAID while sending hundreds of millions of dollars home to war-torn Islamist Somalia wracked by civil war perpetrated by al Qaeda affiliate, Al Shabaab. Further, we noted Somali community leaders in Minneapolis engaged in millions of dollars of Medicare fraud, arrests of a Somali in Las Vegas running a smuggling operation involved with a Class A drug, Khat, and Somali thugs engaged in human trafficking indicted in Federal Court in Nashville last November. Then there was the instance of an honor killing perpetrated against a step sister in Fort Morgan, Colorado by a Somali meat packing plant worker from Greeley, Colorado. These are just a few of many examples of Somali Muslim blatant disregard for our laws and human life.

The latest devastating and distressing story, courtesy of Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch, concerns a fugitive Somali who murdered an entire Native American Family in North Dakota. The story illustrates the reasons why such occurrences happen and literally fall through the cracks of our broken refugee and immigration laws. It is illustrative of why we raised this matter to Rep. Peter King’s House Homeland Security staff. This incident cries out for an investigation as to why these events occurred increasingly involving Somali Muslim refugees who reject everything we stand for. This is a grisly act of one violent Somali’s mass murder.

Here is Ann Corcoran’s post at RRW:

North Dakota: Somali man held as “person of interest” in murder of Native American family


Looks like our immigration system failed this poor family—four dead.

FromAP at Inforum:

A Somali man with a history of violent crime has been interviewed as “a person of interest” in the deaths of his daughter’s mother and three others and is being held by U.S. immigration officials, authorities said Thursday.

Omar Mohamed Kalmio, 26, is the father of an infant girl found alive last week in the Minot apartment of 19-year-old Sabrina Zephier, who was found dead Friday, Minot Police Chief Jeff Balentine told The Associated Press on Thursday. Sabrina Zephier’s mother, Jolene Zephier, 38; brother, Dillon Zephier, 13; and Jolene Zephier’s boyfriend, Jeremy Longie, 22, were found slain in nearby mobile home less than an hour later.

“We have interviewed (Kalmio), and he is a person of interest,” Balentine said.

Authorities had lost track of the“person of interest” in 2006 and found him again in 2010:

Shawn Neudauer, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said Kalmio was arrested Tuesday in Minot for failing to abide by the terms of supervised release stemming from an assault charge. He declined to give details, citing privacy issues.

Minnesota court records show Kalmio was convicted in 2006 of second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, a felony, and sentenced to one year and one day in prison with credit for 143 days served. Kalmio and a group of other Somali men attacked a man in Minneapolis in January 2006, and Kalmio stabbed him three times in the back with a knife, according to a criminal complaint in the case. The victim also was stabbed in the face and shoulder and suffered a collapsed lung and concussion.

That same year, Kalmio was convicted of theft and ordered to pay a fine. Court records show he lived in the Twin Cities suburb of Eagan when the crimes happened.

Minneapolis police said they have had no contact with Kalmio since 2006.

Kalmio had been ordered to report to immigration officials in Grand Forks last August but failed to do so, Neudauer said.

Ahhhh!  Detained in 2010, he was released from custody thanks to a US Supreme Court decision!

Kalmio, who was being held Thursday in the Grand Forks jail, has been in the custody of immigration agents before. ICE issued a statement saying Kalmio was released from custody in May 2010 as a result of rules stemming from a 2001 U.S. Supreme Court decision.

That decision required a court review before immigrants convicted of certain crimes could be deported, a process that had been automatic before. The decision also said criminals with no country to accept them couldn’t be jailed indefinitely.

Somalia has not had a functioning government since 1991.

ICE officials would not comment on whether they tried and failed to deport Kalmio, citing privacy rules.

Three of four murdered were Native Americans:

The Zephiers were members of South Dakota’s Yankton Sioux Tribe. Officials have said they and Longie died after being shot.

If allegations against Somali former refugee (asylee or illegal alien) Omar Mohamed Kalmio, are proven and since Native Americans are surely a protected class, wonder if this will be a federal hate crime?

I live in Eagan.  I just finished a conversation with the elementary school asking why there has been no pork on the menu for the last two months.  It's because of religious sensitivity of our wonderful diversity.

The feds began shunting Muslims away from the city, and now plant them in suburbs where the neighborhood goes down down down and I have to watch my daughters and protect them from the Muslim males they will know as they get older.

No mention, though, of what the motive was.  Of course, as usual, it is because she dishonored him, or the man who was stabbed insulted Mohammed, or things like that.

Not a peep from local Muslims.  Not our fault.
