Warren Mayor Mark Steenbergh claims the federal government is looking to relocate more than 16,000 Iraqi refugees to Warren and Sterling Heights -- and there's no way his city can handle it.

Geez, we do not need any more Muslims. My advice, they needed to be located down to Crawford and Posh Washington DC suburbs.
This stuff needs to stop.
I*’d recommend San Fransicko and Hiyouannusport.
“Warren (Michigan) Mayor: Don’t Send Us Iraqi Refugees “
He must have heard about the 40,000 to 50,000 Bosnian Muslims that have
been dumped on the St. Louis, MO area.
Why can’t Europe, The Middle East, etc., etc., fix their own problems?
(yep, that’s a rhetorical question with the obvious answer: they are
incompetent idiots we American are always saving)
Given that Michigan is running a one state recession it makes no sense that the feds would relocate these people here. But then, this IS the federal government.
Sorry, I do understand, especially because you are overflowing with Mexicans.
I just want the people responsible for all this to have to know what it is like for the rest of the US.
They make these deals from somewhere afar and forget about it, after dumping the problem on others.
It is also a security danger.
Some pleez explain why Americans are fighting and dying in Iraq? Why don’t those folks just stay in Iraq and help rebuild the country. Geez. I’m sick of this.
If the UN is so great then why are there refugees from anywhere at all now? /rhetoric
They're not necessarily Muslims. Many of the Iraqi refugees are Chaldean Catholics fleeing religious persecution (as are many of the Iraqis in that part of Michigan, in Warren and Southfield).
Our unemployment rate is already too high.
Mr. Steenburgh should look as the transplants not as a burden from the government, but as Jenny’s personal gift to the cities of Warren and Sterling Heights. ;)
Makes no sense that some farm and business groups are running a spanish language “Come to Michigan” campaign either but they’re doing it.
SE Michigan is already over-run with them, it’s not just Dearborn.
Published reports have said that 7,000, maybe 25,000, and possibly up to 100,000 Iraqis will be resetted from the current Iraqi War in the coming months.
I caught one tv news report last evening. It was saying that the US State Department couldn’t hire enough Iraqis in Iraq because they had previously been promised visas to resettle in the US as a reward for working for/with the US. When the State Department quit offering visas to resettle in the US, Iraqis quit applying for US government related jobs in Iraq.
You say that now but just wait until the 3 automakers go bankrupt, eliminate the pension liabilities and become revitalized. Detroit is gonna be the apple of America's eye!
Yessiree... that's the way I look at it.
It's just unbelievable what jorge bush has done to this country. We have people dying to make Iraq a safe place to live, the state department tell people that should invest in their own country that we'll take you out of this hell hole and send you to America.
Just damn, bring the troops home.
Our idiot Governor up here in Maine will take all the muslimes he can get.
