Syrian refugee settled in Baton Rouge disappears shows up in Washington DC.

State leaders blasted the feds Monday for not alerting them about 14 Syrian refugees who were resettled in Louisiana. It's unclear when they arrived.

The majority of them are in the New Orleans area, but one came to Baton Rouge two months ago. WBRZ has learned Catholic Charities helped the refugee who settled in Baton Rouge, but said the immigrant left for another state after a couple of days, and they don't know where the refugee went since they don't track them.

Monday, Governor Bobby Jindal issued an executive order preventing the resettlement of Syrian refugees into Louisiana. The order prohibits state resources from being used for the refugees. However, that order does not apply to nonprofits and has no effect on the organization that helps refugees.

"We're at the receiving end," Executive Director of Catholic Charities, Chad Aguillard said. "We receive them, we welcome them into our community and help them resettle. There has been a lot of commotion and fear with Syrians. The fear is justified, but we have to check that against reality."


Louisiana State Police (LSP) and Catholic Charities have told the Hayride that they do know the location of the so-called “missing” Syrian refugee who was resettling in the Baton Rouge area earlier this week.

LSP spokesman Doug Cain said that it is not Catholic Charities’ job to monitor refugees, but rather the State Department’s job. Catholic Charities also mentioned that federal agencies are aware of where the refugee is.

Previously, the Hayride re-iterated a WBRZ report in which Catholic Charities apparently did not know where the Syrian migrant had gone.

Though refugees are not labeled as criminals and are not treated as such, the “screening process” and monitoring process by the State Department has been questioned.


Update at 7:00 pm: WBRZ has confirmed with the Louisiana State Police that a Syrian refugee who had originally resettled in Baton Rouge, has traveled to Washington DC to apparently resettle with family in the area.

Update at 2:15 pm: Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) is reporting that he has spoken with State Police officials and they have told him that they do not know the exact whereabouts of the Syrian refugee who has apparently left the Baton Rouge area. Vitter also said that officials said the refugee is believed to be headed to Washington DC.

Obama ‘confident’ defense pact will Manila will be forged, welcomes TPP interest

Source: Japan Times

President Barack Obama says he’s confident the U.S. will be able to execute a defense cooperation agreement with the Philippines despite a hold-up in implementation.

Obama is meeting with Philippine President Benigno Aquino in Manila. He says the agreement will proceed but that it must go through the process.

The two countries signed a pact last year giving American forces temporary access to selected military camps and permission to preposition assets. But it’s been delayed by a challenge before the Philippine Supreme Court.


Obama also says he welcomes interest by the Philippines in joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were refugees from brutal Chechen conflict

With their baseball hats and sauntering gaits, they appeared to friends and neighbors like ordinary American boys. But the Boston bombing suspects were refugees from another world — the blood, rubble and dirty wars of the Russian Caucasus.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was a southpaw heavyweight boxer who represented New England in the National Golden Gloves and talked about competing on behalf of the United States. His tangle-haired 19-year-old brother, Dzhokhar, was a skateboarder who listened to rap and seemed easygoing to other kids in his Cambridge, Mass., neighborhood.

Tamerlan is now dead, killed in a shootout with police. Police said Friday night they had taken Dzhokhar into custody after he was cornered in a boat stored in a back yard in Watertown, Mass., after a massive manhunt . Hidden behind the lives they had been leading in Massachusetts is a biography containing old resentments that appear to have mutated into radical Islamic violence.

The brothers who are alleged to have planted bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday reached the United States in 2002 after their ethnic Chechen family fled the Caucasus. They had been living in the Central Asian republic of Kyrgyzstan and were prevented from resettling in war-racked Chechnya.


The Russians alerted the FBI to their extremism, they were interviewed prior to the bombing and passed scrutiny.

Crazy situation at [SF Chronicle] after they report a former KTVU broadcaster is dead

I received a call from a KTVU official this morning, telling me they had had spoken to the broadcaster and they are convinced Pat McCormick’s death reported here yesterday was incorrect. An hour later I was on the phone with a man identifying himself as McCormick, who told me the mistake was the product of a “very embarrassing” family situation. He declined to offer more details.

“This is a very embarrassing family situation and I regret it,” McCormick said from his Oregon home. “I’ll take full responsibility for it.”

I circled back to McCormick’s son, Steve “Pat” McCormick, who initially reported his death to The Chronicle, providing specifics and linking to a memorial page. He was seemingly stunned by the news – his voice was shaking – still believing that his father was dead. The Los Angeles resident said he had received a note from his father in September explaining he was in late stage cancer, and a pair of notes from McCormick’s wife explaining that the anchor had died on October 29. (The younger McCormick provided those handwritten notes to The Chronicle, asking that they not be shared because they contained sensitive family information.)

Under 21? Then Forget About Buying Smokes In SF, Says Supe

Though an effort to raise California's smoking age to 21 stalled last month in the state Assembly, that won't stop a couple San Francisco lawmakers from trying to impose tighter regulations for young vapers and smokers at the local level.

At this afternoon's Board of Supervisors meeting (underway as we speak!), Supervisor Scott Wiener and co-sponsors Supervisor Eric Mar and Malia Cohen will introduce legislation to raise the purchasing age for tobacco products in San Francisco from 18 to 21.

In a press release announcing the legislation's introduction, Wiener says that "By raising the tobacco purchase age to 21, we can reduce adolescent tobacco use, which will help combat addiction, stop long-term illness, and prevent premature deaths."

"For decades we have seen the catastrophic health effects of tobacco use, and every day we spend millions of dollars treating people who suffer from an addiction which often starts in their teens. San Francisco can help lead a statewide and national movement to improve the health of our youth and save lives."

It pays to be good at maths! Nigerian professor solves 156-year-old Riemann problem to scoop $1 mill

One of the most important problems in mathematics - the Riemann Hypothesis - has finally been solved by a Nigerian professor.

Dr Opeyemi Enoch said he made a key breakthrough in 2010 which later enabled him to solve the puzzle, which is one of the seven Millennium Problems in Mathematics.

These seven puzzles were set by The Clay Mathematics Institute in 2000 and the organisation has now rewarded Dr Enoch with a $1 million (£658,000) prize for his discovery.

The Riemann Hypothesis was proposed by mathematician Bernard Riemann in 1859 and concerns the distribution of prime numbers.
