City’s Illegal Alien Defense Fund Gives $17,500 to Terrorist Front Group


With the new defense fund for illegal immigrants who face deportation that Ohio’s capital city launched, thousands of taxpayer dollars will go to the local chapter of a terrorist front group that promotes itself as a Muslim civil rights organization.

The sum of money called Columbus Families Together Fund and among its recipients will be the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which is a national organization that serves as the U.S. front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas

Short history of CAIR:

In 1994, three Middle Eastern extremists (Omar Ahmad, Nihad Awad, and Rafeeq Jaber) who ran the American propaganda wing of Hamas, created CAIR, which was then known as the Islamic Association for Palestine.

In 2008 CAIR was a co-conspirator in a federal terror-finance case involving the Hamas front group Holy Land Foundation.

According to top FBI counter terrorism chiefs, CAIR is an entity that not only promotes terrorism, but also finances it.

“In Columbus, we stand with immigrants! This morning I announced Council’s commitment to a legal defense fund to support our refugees and immigrants as they face an onslaught of new hurdles to keep their families together. I’m excited to get to work. Who wants to help?” said Columbus City Councilwoman Elizabeth Brown, vowing to help illegal immigrants fight deportation.

Last week the Columbus City Council established the new legal defense fund with a $185,000 infusion, created to help provide legal services to the area’s illegal aliens and their families.

The money will be for educating detained immigrants on their rights under immigration law, among other things.

Тhe biggest part of the money will go to a nonprofit called Advocates for Basic Legal Equality Inc. The Columbus-area illegal aliens facing deportation in Cleveland Immigration Court will be among the top priorities, and preference will be given to cases involving children.

CAIR will receive $17,500 to provide “legal services that help keep families together in the central Ohio immigrant and refugee communities.”

“We’re sending a signal here tonight. We value our immigrants. We welcome you. We know that the demonization of immigrants throws them into the shadows and makes a class of silent victims. We won’t allow it,” Brown stated.


“The wellbeing of our immigrant communities is intertwined with the city’s overall wellbeing. Ultimately, Columbus is a safer, more just, and more economically vibrant city for everyone when we address the needs of all our residents,” states the document describing the Columbus Families Together Fund.

But, Columbus is not the only city. Last year, the Chicago City Council approved a $1.3 million legal defense fund to assist illegal aliens facing deportation. Few days after, a Los Angeles official unveiled a similar program with a $10 million infusion.
