Lewiston Maine destroyed by Invasion of Somalian Immigrants ( aka leeches )
Posted by acorcoran on January 21, 2009
Update Jan. 28th: Judy posted more information on the Bates College study here.
Four days ago I posted on a story from Newsweek that said the economy was booming in Lewiston, ME because of the huge Somali immigrant population. Well get this, the AP is reporting today that more than half of the Somalis in Lewiston and Auburn, ME are unemployed. The most significant reason for the high levels of unemployment—they can’t speak English!
I thought the whole story in Newsweek sounded fishy. Here is what AP is reporting:
LEWISTON, Maine (AP) — A Bates College study finds that a lack of English language skills is the biggest barrier to employment for many new Somali residents of Lewiston and Auburn.
The report also cites frustration among Somalis that many entry level jobs require certification that the applicant has U.S. high school-level academic skills. Somalis say prior job experience in other states should be accepted as a substitute for the General Educational Development certificate.
The Maine Department of Labor says the 2006 unemployment rate among Somalis in the Twin Cities was 51 percent. The statewide jobless rate among all Mainers at that time was 6.2 percent.
The Bates study was done for the Androscoggin County Chamber of Commerce and the Maine Career Center in Lewiston.
So, if, if, if there is any economic advantage to the area due to the large immigrant influx it’s only because they bring federal and state grant money, special home and business loans, and welfare payments to the cities.
Now, readers, please go back to this post on the true cost to the economy of each immigrant family.

The main stream media sickens me! The media gags me! The media feeds the America public a line of nauseating politically-correct bull-you fill in the blank-that defies reality.
In the current issue of Time Magazine, January 26, 2009, “Refugees Who Saved Lewiston, Maine” by Jesse Ellison, he wrote a cock and bull story that spits and splatters falsehoods that defy reality. He writes how African Somalian refugees ‘saved’ Lewiston from extinction.
That article SO angered me because I visited Lewiston, Maine for a totally different picture. Therefore, I wrote an LTE to Time and so can you: firstname.lastname@example.org . I wrote:
If you asked the people of Lewiston, they mutter under their breaths and complain at every restaurant and bar that their town and way of life suffered destruction by a foreign invasion. Somalian immigrants have nothing in common nor do they assimilate. They’ve simply taken over. Lewiston’s schools suffer disruption that has downgraded education for American kids while Somalians usurp exploded welfare rolls. Those Somalians implement their own culture, language and customs onto Lewiston. So much so, many citizens have moved away. For Ellison to pretend that all works well in Lewiston proves the height of PC journalism and what Mark Twain called, “Silent Assertionthe shabbiest of all lies when the media obfuscates, denies, ignores, clouds or suppresses a social wrong or situation.” On a note of environmentalism, Maine does not need to grow or suffer human expansion. It does not need more immigrants. It has done well for 232 years without such outside migration. The more people added to Maine, the more damage to the environment.”
Further into the issue, Henry Cisneros, an open borders advocate for ILLegal criminal aliens, wrote, “A Fence Can’t Stop the Future.” In his PC piece, he bragged about the fact that a fence cannot stop criminal aliens from breaching our sovereignty as a nation. He touted the fact that Mexicans make up 45 million in America, and because of the fact that Latino women birth eight children for every Latino that dies, versus whites birthing one child for every white that dies. That means by 2042, Latinos will become the new majority at 53 percent while blacks and whites will become the new collective minority.
And, we all know how Mexico’s successful society and culture engages excellence in education, environment and human dignity!
But the harsh realities we face stem from 95 percent of the births in Texas, Arizona and California arrive from illiterate ILLegal alien mothers with no fathers. They birth kids like popcorn poppers! No way to feed, care or maintain responsibility for those children! Who pays? You pay! Total? Try $346 billion annually across 15 federal agencies!
Cisneros said, “U.S. growth will come from the Latino population-that’s 100 million people.”
He admitted that a major Latino population could, “actually speed our national decline.” California, overrun by Mexican migrants, plummeted from the top five schools systems in the USA 20 years ago to the bottom of the barrel of the worst five states. Why? Mexico, as a culture, rejects education. Most Latino immigrants quit school by age 16. It’s been said, “The girls get pregnant and the boys deal drugs before heading off to jail.”
Our dilemma grows as we add millions from Latin America and Africa that arrive from cultures of poverty, illiteracy, endless child birth, drugs and crime. Detroit suffers a 76 percent drop out/flunk out rate in their high schools. Chicago, New York, Denver, Miami, Dallas and other cities follow the same illiteracy path.
Six years ago, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm in a Washington DC speech on “How to Destroy America”, said, “Here is how to destroy America. First, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar Seymour Lipset put it this way, “The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension and tragedy.” Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanon-all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons and Corsicans.”
Lamm continued on how to destroy America, “Invent ‘multiculturalism’ and encourage immigrants to maintain their own culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences! I would make it an article of faith that the black and Hispanic dropout rates are due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.”
At the end of Cisneros diatribe, he said, “We can learn English without forgetting Spanish, adopt American social practices and follow American laws without ignoring our obligations to our family and community.” [i.e., maintain Mexican culture and language]
The hard fact remains that Mexicans in this country do not learn English, do not respect our laws, do not respond to educational opportunities, do not incorporate themselves into the American way of life. They force their customs into our communities.
Ditto for the Somalians in Lewiston! Even more disconcerting, they run Americans out of their own cities and communities. Somalians do not respect our language, culture or way of life.
They simply invade and overwhelm while implementing theirs. They colonize and separate! Same in Miami, Chicago, Atlanta and New York!
Again, the MSM continues its ‘silent assertion dance’ that obfuscates, suppresses, denies, ignores and clouds what’s really happening in our society.
This immigration juggernaut portends an additional 138 million to 150 million more people into our country in 41 years-90 percent driven by legal and illegal immigration. Can you name one advantage for adding 138 million third world people to the USA in the light of current water shortages, energy and quality of life issues in every city?
Who wins; who loses? In the end, we all lose the foundation of our language, our culture as well as sustainable civilization. Man! Are we in trouble!
