Liberals love to tell us that welfare fraud is not a big problem in America. They also tell us that today’s Muslim immigration is a wonderful thing, making the “fabric of America” more beautiful and diverse.
So when you hear about a group of Muslim immigrants conducting massive welfare fraud and tax fraud, you can be sure that the mainstream media won’t cover it.
One such case was just recently discovered in Portland, Maine.
Over the last 8 years, Obama has flooded Maine with low-skilled immigrants who have no intentions of working or assimilating.
Ali Ratib Daham, the owner of the Ahram Halal Market on Forest Avenue, is being investigated for massive fraud, amounting to over $2.7 million.
FBI reports describe how Muslim customers would come into Daham’s store, buy a small amount of groceries, often less than $20 worth. Then Daham would give the customers hand-fulls of cash, after taking hundreds of dollars off their SNAP (food stamp) benefits cards.
Making matters worse, Daham then instructed several other Muslim customers how to get even more government benefits by pretending not to know English and telling the government that they wanted to go to school. That way, his customers could get benefits without working.
Adding insult to injury, Daham also instructed his customers how to file false tax returns, despite not working, in order to collect the government’s “earned income tax credit”. The “earned income tax credit” is a program that gives money to poor working people, to subsidize their incomes.
Another employee at the Ahram Halal Market, Ashraf Eldeknawey, filed false tax returns for hundreds of Muslim customers, using stolen social security numbers. All of them claimed tax refunds, and the FBI reported that the refunds amounted to “hundreds of thousands of dollars”.
Despite raking in a fortune in fraudulent tax dollars, the store owner, Ali Ratib Daham, himself also filed false tax returns, under reporting his income and collecting large tax refunds every year.
Perhaps the most disturbing part of this story? The Ahram Halal Market was raided in April, yet federal agents have yet to arrest or prosecute anyone involved in this case.
Obama has made it very clear that certain immigrants are not to be prosecuted. This is an example of how Obama is transforming America.
Up until the 1970’s, our immigration policies worked well, because new arrivals either worked hard, or they returned to their countries; new arrivals did not qualify for welfare.
Today, it’s a different story. Few, if any, of these new immigrants dumped in Maine want to work. Nor do they want to assimilate. But they will do everything in their power to steal from the hardworking American taxpayer. Many of them even hate America.
What is it going to take to wake up Americans to what is happening to our country?
