Massachusetts mayor: Stop sending my city refugees (Springfield MA)
Associated Press ^ | Jun 23, 2014 1:53 AM EDT | Paige Sutherland

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 they’re 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.

Can’t put them out in the country, they’d have walk too far to pick up their handouts.

How about this idea: Send them to Hawaii and Illinois, Obama's home state and adopted state. I'm sure the good people of Hawaii and Illinois would be most happy to greet as many of the illegal immigrant children and other so-called refugees as Obama can send them.

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.

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.

No one is asking...

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!

Absolutely. Libs are famous for saying “NIMBY”, whether it’s windmills, illegals, or similar.

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.

Any pro amnesty governor/senator/rep should welcome what obama is doing. If they don’t, that’s racist right?

Why not just send them to the so called Sanctuary Cities. They should be greeted with open arms by the liberal/progressive mayors.
They will know that the experiment was successful, when the city council meetings are conducted using Arabic and Somali languages.

The Marxist/Muslim is responsible for this...his Cloward-Piven scheme (a malevolent strategy of overloading and destroying our economy and our system of government) is all going as planned.

Excerpt:

“It’s about to get worse. . . Entire villages are emptying out and coming from Central America through Mexico to the United States. They’ll be hitting in the next couple weeks. What you are seeing right now is the tip of the iceberg.”

The Daily Caller reports, “a leaked estimate by a top official in the Department of Homeland Security says the 12-month inflow will reach 90,000 by October, and then grow by another 142,000 in the next 12 months before October 2015.” That’s over 230,000, nearly a quarter million that the Democrats hope to dump on US taxpayers. Soon, this number will have grown by millions.

The train that departs from Nicaragua and heads north to the United States. The train illegally brings an estimated 500,000 people per year to the United States.

FWIW, Springfield is the major population center in central MA. It already has a very large poverty level and immigrant population. The city has done pretty well to not become a basketcase.

The MA liberals you speak of would think of Springfield as a road sign they pass on their way to Tanglewood or skiing in VT. It's where they'd want to dump these child invaders...out of sight, out of mind. This could be a real good wedge issue for constitutional conservatives to get the votes of hard working US citizens who are sick of being nothing but an inconvenience to the elite....both political parties.

Ask some of the people in Maine what they think about the Somalian men. Ask them if they like their young girls assaulted by these Muslims.
