Combating ‘Whiteness’, Boulder Has Imported Syrian Refugees Like Ahmad Al-Issa Since 2015

The city of Boulder, Colorado was recently rocked by a mass murder at a local supermarket that took the lives of 10 people. The suspect police have arrested in connection to the murders is a Syrian man named Ahmad Al Issa who has a history of complaining about “racist white people” and cultural insensitivity.

For nearly a decade, liberal activists have focused on the alleged problem of “whiteness” within Boulder and have sought to increase the city’s diversity by importing Syrian migrants.

In 2015 liberal foundations in Boulder began to stress the importance of welcoming Syrian immigrants, celebrating the fact that “In 2016, we expect nearly 2,000 refugees will be welcomed into Colorado, and, according to the TRENDS Report, some 419 refugees became permanent legal residents of Boulder County between 2003 and 2013.”

Boulder’s then-mayor Suzanne Jones noted, “We have inclusivity aspirations that we are working to live up to.” The Boulder City Council then continued to hold votes to allow even more Syrian refugees to take up permanent residence in the city in a “declaration regarding inclusivity for the refugees and other disenfranchised populations.”

Even after the founder of Boulder’s largest Syrian refugee charity pleaded guilty to felony charges of embezzling more than $130,000 from his own organization in 2018, the city continued to push for racial change. Articles lamented the city’s “crushingly white majority population,” and liberal activists expressed horror about the city’s relatively small proportion of foreign-born residents.
