Minnesota: Somali “Refugees” Stealing Hundreds of Millions in Welfare Swindle

Somali invaders in Minnesota—given “refugee status” by liberals and the US Government—are stealing hundreds of millions of dollars in welfare swindles and shipping the cash by commercial aircraft back to Somalia in suitcases to regions controlled by the Islamist al Shabaab organization, an investigation by KMSP-TV in that state has revealed.

According to the report, suitcases filled with cash have “become a common carry-on” at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP), carried by Somalis flying out of the country.

US treasury law states that as long it is declared, a passenger can take $1 million in cash with them onto a commercial aircraft headed out of the country.

The report said that these “scenarios now happen almost weekly at MSP. The money is usually headed to the Middle East, Dubai and points beyond. Sources said last year alone, more than $100 million in cash left MSP in carry-on luggage.”

The report quoted Glen Kerns, is a former Seattle police detective who spent 15 years on the FBI’s joint terrorism task force. “What we were interested in is where it was going,” Kerns said. “It’s an outright crime, it’s unbelievable,” he said.

According to Kerns, the money is couriered using the “hawala” system, which follows Islamic traditions.

“Kerns discovered some of the money was being funneled to a Hawala in the region of Somalia that is controlled by the al Shabaab terrorist group,” the report continued.

“I talked to a couple of sources who had lived in that region and I said, ‘If money is going to this Hawala do you think it is going to al Shabaab?'” said Kerns. “And he said, ‘Oh definitely, that area is controlled by al Shabaab, and they control the Hawala there.’”

He said when the money arrives, whether it was intended for legitimate purposes or not, al Shabaab or other groups demand a cut.

As Kerns dug deeper, he found that some of the individuals who were sending out tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of remittance payments happened to be on government assistance in this country.

“We had sources that told us, ‘It’s welfare fraud, it’s all about the daycare,’” said Kerns.

The report went on to reveal that the nonwhites were stealing the money through a “daycare fraud” which was “on the rise in Minnesota,” and the system was being “gamed to steal millions in government subsidies meant to help low-income families with their childcare expenses.”

“It’s a great way to make some money,” Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman was quoted as saying.

In order for the scheme to work, the daycare centers need to sign up low income families that qualify for child care assistance funding. Surveillance videos from a case prosecuted by Hennepin County show parents checking their kids into a center, only to leave with them a few minutes later. Sometimes, no children would show up.

Either way, the center would bill the state for a full day of childcare. Video from that same case shows a man handing out envelopes of what are believed to be kickback payments to parents who are in on the fraud.

When asked where the money was going, Freeman said, “I don’t know exactly where it went. But it adds up when you begin to look at how many people were involved.”

Acting Commissioner for the Department of Human Services Chuck Johnson told the reporters that his agency currently has 10 daycares currently under active investigation for fraud, and that “dozens more are considered suspicious.”

According to public records and government sources, most of these agencies “are owned by Somali immigrants.”

The report went on to quote “sources in the Somali community” as saying that it was an “open secret that starting a daycare center is a license to make money. The fraud is so widespread they said, that people buy shares of daycare businesses to get a cut of the huge public subsidies that are pouring in.”

The fraud has been ongoing for years amongst the nonwhites, with the state aggressively tracking the swindle when it was “easier to track the flow of money. The state would pay a daycare’s bill and within hours of the money showing up in the business’s bank account, funds were being wired to the United Arab Emirates. Those wire transfers stopped after a few centers were busted.”

Since then, the nonwhite invaders have switched to moving the money in cash. In 2015, investigators documented $14 million in “carry on” cash on aircraft at MSP. By 2016, it had grown to $84 million, and in 2017, reached $100 million.

  1. The stupid Minnesota Libs consider it a great honor to be bilked of their tax dollars, as long as it’s done by browwwwn people…. See how they bend over backwards for anybody brown even criminals (as long as they are “people of color”) can do no wrong…. Gross.

  2. We need to increase fund raising for Somalians in Minnesota, to stop fraud.

    Nothing else will work, the time for debate is over. This is the 21st century.

  3. Wherever there’s welfare, there’s fraud … working families need a system wherein that’s not possible. The systems for checks and prevention are easily available, but city and state authorities both here and in Europe are often staffed by the same persuasion of people as those committing the fraud, and will cite all manner of reasons to abstain from stringent examination of welfare applicants.

  4. Pretty sure at least a couple of like scenarios of ‘dodgy looking ‘ third world run day cares have been busted in Oz. But the govt takes good care not to spook the natives, (us ) with up front reports. eg The Daily Telegraph had to expose the aussie jihadis in the ME , still on welfare payments. The Oz, govt had not been real interested in the existence of caboodles, of third world doctors handing out disab pensions.
