Obama spending millions to find summer jobs for refugees

The Obama administration wants to make sure Utica, New York’s young refugees aren’t without a job, so he’s spending millions to make sure it doesn’t happen.

“Access to a job in the summer and beyond can make all the difference to a young person – especially those who don’t have access to many resources and opportunities,” President Obama said of his new Summer Opportunity Project.

The project spends a total of $21 million on a variety of programs in 11 communities nationwide with the focus of helping young people find summer work, and permanent part-time jobs, the White House and U.S. Department of Labor announced Monday.

At least $2 million of the total will be set aside to help 400 refugee students in Utica, New York get to work through the New Americans Career Pathways Project, the Utica Observer-Dispatch reports.

“The New Americans Career Pathways project will provide in-school youth with summer jobs and academic support for 400 students in the refugee populations of Utica, NY,” according to a White House Fact Sheet. “The students will receive summer job work experience and academic tutoring in English and Math, and support in finding part-time jobs.”

“Since 2009, more than fifteen Federal agencies have launched dozens of initiatives and partnerships with over 1,800 rural, tribal and urban communities,” according to the White House statement Monday. “Building on that work, the White House and 16 federal agencies announce an effort today to provide tailored support from the federal government to 16 Summer Impact Hubs to upgrade and expand their summer jobs, learning, meals, and violence reduction programs for young people this summer and year-round.”

According to the White House’s Monday Fact Sheet/ news release:

https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2016/05/16/fact-sheet-white-house-and-department-labor-announce-21-million-summer

The President’s FY 2017 Budget proposes new investments – nearly double last year’s request – to connect more than 1 million young people to first jobs over the summer and year-round. It would also create a new $2 billion competitive grant program designed to connect at-risk and disconnected youth to educational and workforce pathways. DOL will work with Treasury to ensure that young people participating in these programs have access to safe and appropriate financial products and accounts.

We are not taking care of our veterans. We’re not taking care of our seniors. We have more homeless than at anytime in our nation’s history.

We’re bringing more in that we cannot support.

So I will continue to Flood the Country with Illegal Aliens that will work for half price to make sure NO Young People EVER WORK. They will be Dependent on the Democrat Welfare Party Forever.

What youre missing here is that 99% of the money will be consumed by govt employees and their surrogates tasked with adminsitering the program.

This is just midnight basketball part deux except for the Utica program.
Very strange, why only Utica? Is it because it is a small number of “ refugees”? hoping it would not get noticed?

NTW I wonder from where do bo get these millions?

And we pay these imported welfare cases to pinch off more welfare cases and teach them islam language and other islamic nonsense in our public schools.

If we really must bring their trash here we should at least sterilize it first.

Government isn’t taking care of Americans, period. And that goes for Republicans as well as Democrats.

Why in hell does the Congress allow this flake to get away with crap like this? Why do these damned careerist politicians fail to rein in all spending and actions by Obama’s central socialist government that is anti-Constitutional?

Oh. I know the answer. They’re accomplices.
