Immigrant with criminal record has been deported to Somalia

Nina Bernstein:

Mohamad Rasheed Jama was recently deported to Somalia

On the evening of Nov. 2, a young corporate lawyer in New Jersey received a frantic call from a charity client, a 46-year-old Harlem grocery clerk with a history of petty crime. He was in custody on an airplane in Newark on his way to Mogadishu, the capital of his native Somalia, a country so dangerous that to the lawyer’s knowledge, no one had been deported there in years.

The courts were closed, and a federal judge who heard an emergency motion the next day ruled that the clerk, Mohamad Rasheed Jama, was already outside United States jurisdiction.

So, after a stop in Nairobi, where he was handed over to Kenyans, Mr. Jama stepped off an airplane in Mogadishu — and into the hands of Islamist militants, who soon accused him of being an American spy and began demanding money.

“They were extremely angry,” said his lawyer, Emily B. Goldberg, relating the last frightened call she got from Mr. Jama, who had spent four years in immigration detention in New Jersey awaiting deportation to the land he left at 18. “He asked me if there was anything I could do. I told him in the American system, there was nothing more I could do.”

Mr. Jama, whose deportation was based on a 1989 conviction for owning an unlicensed gun, is among the first Somalis to be repatriated against his will since the United States Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 last year that the lack of a functioning central government in Somalia did not bar such deportations. About 4,000 Somalis nationwide are eligible for immediate deportation under the ruling, which turned on the syntax of a Congressional statute.

My only problem with this deportation was that it only took place in 2006 when he was convicted back in 1989. Let us hope that, in future, the authorities will be more timely in deporting immigrant criminals.

Perhaps you should call blog a "modern Racist"! I think that's more fitting than the name you currently have!

I like ol' Mucktar's comment.

Asking a criminal Muslim to return to his home country is racist.

Son, living among civilized white folks is a privilege, not a right.

If you mess up like this boy Jama did and you go back home to your homeland.

Hell, I can relate, though. Can you imagine being forced to go live with those savages?

Once they get a taste of the white man's world, like ol' Mucktar, they will beg, plead, lie, cheat and steal, whine and grovel, -- hell, they will do ANYTHING to keep from going back to the hellholes they come from.

The problem is that they don't recognize what their proper place is. They are like a garnish, a little sprinkle of salt. You pour in too much salt and the whole dish tastes like sh!t.

And the truth is that Mucktar knows it. Hell, he looks around him and knows his people can't create what we do in America. He knows how savage and barbarian his people are. He has to live with that shame every single day of his life, knowing he abandoned his own kind -- Muslim black folk -- because they are just too primitive. He knows that he and his fellow refugees, Somali, Eritrean, Ethiopian, whatever, are just living off the white man and the white man's culture in order just to survive. He knows that his entire country would leave and come live in white America in a heartbeat -- as long as they could leave their black brothers behind. How awful that must make him feel!

Yet he is so desperate to defend his "pride" (a pride he left way, way behind when he begged permission to enter America and leave his black family, friends and culture far behind) that he attacks white folks who want to send criminal Somalis back home as "racists".

Well, it won't work, Mucktar. You left Somalia because Somalis ARE criminal, they ARE violent, they ARE ignorant, and they ARE primitive. In short, you left them because they are like that boy Jama, who blew his one chance to live a decent life and has to go home.

Son, we can't civilize every black man that comes to this ountry. In fact that is why Mr. Jama was toting a gun: to protect himself from savage home-grown blacks. Maybe Mr. Jama was correct to carry a gun when living in and around black folks, whether in New Jersey or Somalia. But we are right, too. We can't keep importing gun-toting Africans when we already have a monstrous problem with gun-toting Africans in our country already! Y'all are just going to have to learn to police yourselves.

big bill,
It is sad to hear an American say things you did. We have a long way to go to educate some of our own people such as you. May GOD help you.

I think some people was really racist but to say that its a privilege for them to live with white i don't think so. Some people find may think of that but not me.
