CLEVELAND - A man has paid off more than $106,000 in shoppers' layaways at two Wal-Mart stores

CBS affiliate WOIO in Cleveland reports the man told Wal-Mart employees that he liked to do something special on his birthday every year. They say he insisted on remaining anonymous.

"I thought somebody was playing me, I thought it was a scam. I'm like, let me call up here and I asked to speak to one of the managers, and they said, 'No it's not a scam, it's for real'," one surprised shopper said.

The anonymous donor paid off a total of nearly $70,000 for the layaway items at the Steelyard Commons store in Cleveland and about $36,000 for items in Lorain. Items on layaway included toys, 70-inch televisions and even a pair of socks.

Tara Neal said she had paid $10 on a bed for her 3-year-old daughter at one of the stores when she was told Tuesday that the remaining balance of more than $80 was paid. She said it was "like Santa."


Syrian family gets into U.S. by disguising themselves as guns

NEW YORK (The News Desk) — A family of refugees from Al Hasakah, Syria gained easy admittance into the United States on Monday after tricking U.S. immigration officials into thinking they were a family of guns.

Amin and Jamila Halabi, along with daughters Najwa and Zaida, were quickly ushered through the mandatory refugee screening process at Newark International Airport after border agents noticed that they were guns.

“Right this way, Mr. and Mrs. Gun,” said U.S. Border Services agent Lisa Bremner. “We have an airport shuttle waiting for you outside.”

Amin Halabi explained that the family came up with the idea after being turned down by the U.S. for permanent residency last month.

“Do we have to keep doing this? Does this mean I must lead the life of a gun?” asked Halabi.

Border agent Sam Kearney said that the Halabi family’s experience was what U.S. immigration policy was all about.

“When you think about it, this is just a regular family of guns that wants to live a peaceful, quiet life. They didn’t choose to be here,” said Kearney.

“Our borders will always be open to families like theirs.”

Malala Yousafzai Has A Message For Donald Trump And Muslim Haters


Following Donald Trump’s comments about ending Muslim emigration to the US, and asked how she responded to the “wild things being said about Islam and Muslims”, she said: “I can just highlight one thing. The more you speak about Islam and against all Muslims, the more terrorists we create.

“So it’s important that whatever politicians say, whatever the media say, they should be really, really careful about it. If your intention is to stop terrorism, do not try to blame the whole population of Muslims for it because it cannot stop terrorism. It will radicalize more terrorists.”
