Skip to comments.Massachusetts mayor: Stop sending my city refugees (Springfield MA)
Posted on 06/22/2014 11:31:42 PM PDT by Olog-hai
A Massachusetts mayor is calling for an end to refugee resettlement in his city, saying Somali families are putting pressure on already strained services in Springfield, a onetime industrial center where nearly a third of the population lives below the poverty line.
Mayor Domenic Sarno is the latest mayor to decry refugee resettlement, joining counterparts in New Hampshire in Maine in largely rare tensions with the State Department, which helps resettle refugees in communities across America.
The mayor is drawing criticism from those who say this country has a moral obligation to help the outcast and refugees who say theyre being scapegoated for problems the city faced long before their arrival.

Just wait until the 13 million illegals from Latin America are declared “refugees”... That’s the plan to get them amnesty without Congress.
Exactly. Executive Order. Need to ‘go around Congress’ Obama said. We don’t need no stinkin’ checks and balances!
Can’t put them out in the country, they’d have walk too far to pick up their handouts.
The libtards don’t want them in their backyards.
But i think that the people in Hawaii---a state with a majority of people of Asian descent--- only accept illegals and refugees from Asia.
If they are "refugees" from terror and violence, then why don't a lot of them also go south to Costa Rica and Panama?
They don't go south because they are really seeking the good life north in the United States.
Trains: Something must be done about all those crowded freight trains carrying illegals to the Mexico-US border with a free ride.
They AREN’T refugees....they are ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!!!
Some of the opinions on the Internet about refugee resettlement in Wyoming are inaccurate and racist, Gov. Matt Mead said.
Cambridge, MA along with some other towns inside of I-128 in eastern MA would be much better places.
Where is the Former Mayor and now Congressional Representative Richard Neal ( D ) on this matter?
Too busy running the block for Louis Lerner and inventing schemes of automatic 401(k)'s with some new fangled government bond hidden in that legislation.
The citizens ought to Primary him out,write in the dog catcher, anything as a protest vote, but then again we are talking an uber-liberal stranglehold that will not change.

Hey! There are still freedom-loving, conservative, Bible-carrying Illinoisans who are trying to turn this state around!
The Kennedys want them, let the Kennedys take care of them.
Absolutely. Libs are famous for saying “NIMBY”, whether it’s windmills, illegals, or similar.
Hey - Mayor. Eat your peas.
these were from Somalia.There has been a large influx from Liberia.
The magic words are “I feared for my life from the bad guys”
My observations of them was they were hard workers with jobs.
They AREN'T illegal immigrants..... they are ENEMY INVADERS!!!
They are attacking our borders and way of life. they need to be executed or removed.
